True Professional, Effortlessly Reads the Crowd
Hiring the DJ was not my task, but as mother of the bride, I was thrilled with Lee and his crew from Hey Mister DJ. During the planning process, he asked the bride and groom for their play list and their “do not play” list, and seamlessly wove their selections into the evening music, reading the crowd like only an experienced DJ can, keeping the dance floor occupied all night. He handled introductions and announcements with ease, no “cheese,” and kept his talking to a minimum. Quail Ranch in Simi Valley is an expansive outdoor venue, and he and his crew set up the sound system for each area - ceremony, cocktail hour, and then reception - perfectly and unobtrusively, including accommodating a live keyboardist for the ceremony. The entire venue, the whole day, had continuous, lovely music as guests moved about. I promise you will be happy and have no worries if you hire Hey Mister DJ!Sent on 05/08/2021

Best DJ in town!
Working with Lee and his staff were top notch! They understood our needs, were very accomodating and helpful in all our design needs from lighting, to the photo booth but especially the MC and DJ of our reception. Lee was quick to respond and answered all my questions, made me feel very comfortable and took the stress of knowing he had our back and would make our reception flow as needed. I would highly recommend Hey Mister DJ for your special event.Sent on 10/29/2019
Hey Mister DJ's reply:Thanks Jane! We really enjoyed working with you (and Chuck) on your wedding. You both had a clear vision of what you wanted which makes it easier for us. P.S. The band crushed it!

Professional, easy and highly accommodating
We would recommend Hey Mister DJ for your next event. He played a great mix of music from our playlist and kept talking down to a minimum. He was great at introducing our wedding party and was a wonderful dj for the night.Sent on 12/04/2019

DJ Lee from Hey Mr DJ is Great!!!
DJ Lee joined our Company for a zoom video call where he hosted a "Guess that song" game. He did an amazing job, it was super fun and people really cooperated and enjoyed the game! Lee was running it with enthusiasm and a smile. He was super professional, came on ahead of the call, and set up everything, made sure to ask the right questions so that its really perfect and nothing is forgotten! very recommended!! :)Sent on 08/03/2020

Best. Dj. Ever!
Anyone who knows me knows that music is one of the most important things in my life. That’s probably why as soon as my husband proposed, one of the very first things I did was start researching DJ’s. And boy, did I RESEARCH! I stumbled joint Hey Mr. DJ and was amused that that was the title of one of the songs by my favorite band. That didn’t matter though because Lee seriously blew the competition out of the water. It wasn’t just his obvious talent or skill, but when he agreed to meet with me and my husband, we felt so at ease with him, as if we were meeting an old friend for coffee. I seriously loved how he didn’t try to push anything on us. He even gave us a book on finding the right DJ to help us make our decision, even if that decision meant hiring someone else (spoiler alert: it didn’t). Putting together the playlist was a breeze. The actual day of our wedding, so many things went wrong. I’m usually the picture of calm and collected, but I was a bundle of stress and nerves. The second the music started though? It was like all of that stress instantly melted away. Lee did a PHENOMENAL job as our DJ and MC. I spent a majority of the night on the dance floor because he really listened to what we/the crowd wanted. Oh and as an added bonus, he did our lighting, too! We didn’t even talk much about it because it was a last-minute addition, but he nailed what we were looking for. Hiring Lee was definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!Sent on 12/02/2019
Hey Mister DJ's reply:Thanks Lori! It certainly helps to have an awesome bride who is on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG!! You guys were super fun and we wish you an amazing holiday season.

AMAZING DJ service! Highly recommend!
We used Hey Mister DJ for our wedding (10/10/19 at Descanso Gardens) and they were AMAZING! Lee (the owner) was truly the most friendly, organized, and thoughtful DJ we spoke with initially--and that definitely remained true throughout the planning process. He really listened to our ideas for the wedding and made excellent suggestions using his breadth of experience! My best advice for those planning a wedding: listen to the experts, especially those who have worked at your venue before! Lee definitely is an expert and we really appreciated all of his help from lighting to music to making sure the schedule for the evening went smoothly! Our DJ (Tyler) was fantastic, too! The dance floor was packed the whole evening and he made sure everything went smoothly by gently and kindly prompting guests to be seated, announcing our entrance, and taking song requests from guests (and making sure he knew our preferences, too!)! The tech was great across all locations (mic for the ceremony, speakers & pre-set playlist for the cocktail hour, sound for the reception, and lighting!) All in all a wonderful group!! HIGHLY recommend!Sent on 11/12/2019
Hey Mister DJ's reply:Thanks so much for your kind words and feedback Emily. We love our industry and passionate about creating amazing weddings... so it makes us super happy to know you are pleased with everything. Our best wishes to you both!

I am so grateful that we worked with Hey Mister DJ. I interviewed ~ 3 different DJ services and instantly clicked with Lee! He was willing to work with us on our budget as well as our specific venue needs (i.e. sound equipment outside for the ceremony, uplighting, etc.). On the day of the wedding, we were so blown away by our DJ for the night - Tyler! He was INCREDIBLE. All of our guests came up to us to compliment him and share that he was so engaged, read the room, was professional and seemed to really care about doing a wonderful job and making the event the best night of our lives. Thank you thank you Hey Mister DJ & Tyler! I highly recommend their services :)Sent on 10/21/2019

We requested Hey Mister DJ to play our wedding at the Hilton DoubleTree in downtown LA. Their music selection was great and they were flexible and quick to make suggestions and changes through the night. Most of our guests are fairly reserved but they were great at reading the room and able to get people on the dance floor all night long. Not to mention their lighting setup made the room look great and really set the right mood for the evening. We had a great time and would definitely recommend them.Sent on 04/01/2019
Hey Mister DJ's reply:You guys rocked the dance floor all the way till Midnight! So glad you were happy and enjoyed the music :o)

Lee was just super. He knows the tempo and reads the room very well.Sent on 10/31/2018
He was very easy to work with and he will give you ideas and options to make your reception go without a hitch. Lee's mixes were awesome and he kept the room on the floor when ever needed. And he is a great MC as well. I will use Lee anytime I have a function in the future and his price is very reasonable. I'm very glad to have found Lee.
Book him before he is taken!!
Michelle · Married on 10/13/2018
DJ Jimmy was an absolute blast to work with. He was very responsive to emails and last-minute changes. He put together a killer set for the reception that everyone loved! He sang a few songs during dinner which delighted all the guests and made my father/daughter dance even more special by singing my dad’s favorite Frank Sinatra song! I could not recommend Jimmy and Mister DJ more!!Sent on 10/09/2018
Hey Mister DJ's reply:Thanks Michelle!

Lee is the man! He thinks of everything so that at the wedding you are fully prepared. Everything from pronunciations & emphasis of people's names to having a very clear timeline (that is easy to set up with him) makes for a stress free wedding and a night of fun! During the wedding, Lee would always check in with us and make sure that we are ready to move into the speeches or move into the dances or move into the cake cutting, etc. This allowed us to be in control instead of having a rogue DJ that had their own schedule. This was super professional and courteous.
He played all the specialty songs that we wanted, and he asked us for a general ideas list of the other type of music that we wanted. Be sure to be very clear about what is a must play vs. the general ideas list. We made sure that the last 3 songs were must play, and he was sure to play them.
Throughout the event, Lee went around and made sure that the speakers were the right level and that everything was working and not too quiet or too loud.
During the ceremony, he mic'd the quartet and mic'd the officiant. Providing a mic for the quartet is a MUST! This was his idea, and it was so much better having them amplified. Both our venue loved him and the wedding planner loved him as well.
He is a genius at reading the crowd and choosing the PERFECT next song. He kept everyone dancing and singing the entire night.Sent on 10/14/2018
Hey Mister DJ's reply:You're dance party was epic! Thanks so much for trusting us to help create an amazing wedding. We truly appreciate it and sending you both our best wishes! :)
Jonathan · Married on 09/15/2018
Lee strung together a playlist which kept people moving all night, which was formulated from some Skype meetings months before, as well as surveys, and an email requesting "must play" and "DON'T PLAY" lists. He was vocal, but not OVERLY vocal, felt very natural.Sent on 10/10/2018
Most important to use was when the food vendor delayed service, he was able to keep the evening flowing flawlessly, taking peoples attention off of the slow service and on to having a good time. Honestly, a huge lifesaver, and I'd recommend him 100%.
Hey Mister DJ's reply:Thanks guys. Such a COOL venue you picked for the wedding! I was thrilled to be part of the big day and it makes my job easy when you have such fun & "danceable" guests :) They really had amazing energy. Best wishes to you both!
Sydney · Married on 09/15/2018
Lee is a total pro!
We got numerous compliments on Lee’s song selection. He absolutely killed it, from cocktail hour to late night dancing. He knows how to read the crowd and he is an awesome MC was well. You won’t find that he is on the mic too much, but he knows when to be vocal. He was instrumental to the success of our wedding when we had to revise the timeline a bit due to a food vendor issue, but he didn’t miss a beat. He is friendly, professional and just an all around pro at what he does. Lee, we can’t thank you enough!Sent on 10/29/2018
Jemima · Married on 08/11/2018
Brilliant experience from start to finish! We had a beach ceremony and a reception inside Shutters on the Beach Hotel, Santa Monica. All the guys at Hey Mister DJ we’re reliable, fun to work with and provided incredible recommendations for the lighting and sound (outside on the beach with wireless microphone / speakers and inside the venue). Every guest was up and dancing throughout the whole party - we were having so much fun on the day that we extended the party so we could dance more. Brilliant, guys. Thank you SO much!!!Sent on 08/16/2018
Hey Mister DJ's reply:Thanks for your feedback...we are so happy to have been part of your day!
Casey · Married on 08/03/2018
I knew I wanted to work with Lee right from the start, and he really blew us away with his video proposal. He was familiar with our venue and that helped seal the deal. We wanted someone with experience who understood what we were looking for with an eclectic crowd of kids that grew up in the nineties and family who loves Latin music. Lee was able to keep the crowd dancing all night (including myself, who had a broken ankle). He was never cheesy and was a great MC. To top things off he created an extremely sweet video that was completely unexpected and one of my favorite things captured during that day. Best wedding DJ of all time!!Sent on 08/23/2018
Hey Mister DJ's reply:Thanks Casey! You were the most amazing bride and kept everyone rallied around you on the dance floor with your super cool bridal scooter ;op So much fun....
K · Married on 07/20/2018
I can't tell you how much we enjoyed your participation in my Birthday Party. The music was great...you can always tell how well the DJ is doing by the number of people dancing. I think we had almost everybody up at one point....even some people who don't dance! Thanks again for adding the dancefloor lighting. It was generous of you and added much needed atmosphere. The video was much fun. There were numerious compliments...reminded me of so many things from the past I had forgotten. Good job! All in all it was an amazing night. I had a fabulous time... I know everybody else did too! Enjoy the rest of your summer...it goes too fast.Sent on 08/06/2018
Thanks again...I will pass on your name to anyone who will listen and hope to have the opportunity to use you again! Best, K
Hey Mister DJ's reply:Thanks for choosing us to help create such a fun & memorable party. Our best wishes to you Kris!

Lee was incredibly responsive in our planning stage, fair in price, and extremely experienced in his work and in understanding how people are responding to the music he's playing and learning to adapt. My experience with Lee during my wedding was exceptional. He had also worked extensively with our wedding coordinator, who had recommended him, so we thought we were working with someone who could be trusted to work our wedding. He surpassed all of our expectations and made every detail that we spoke about and even details we didn't think to much about priceless. I truly recommend his personal services and everything he recommends through anyone's event planning and execution.Sent on 07/28/2018
Anna · Married on 04/21/2018
I discovered Hey Mister DJ at my wedding venue's tasting night, and I am so glad they were there! Lee the owner was incredibly helpful, and perfectly understood my music genre concerns....I had a great feeling that they would be able to totally nail the vibe my husband and I were hoping for. Our DJ for the wedding wound up being Mark....he was very thorough in his emails before the event, and executed our music wish lists perfectly. I remember smiling during dinner when I heard certain songs come through, and having a blast along with the rest of our guests when it came time for dancing. I would highly recommend both the company, and specifically Mark, to anyone needing a DJ for their special day. -- Anna P.Sent on 06/05/2018

Lee DJ-ed for my wedding at Descanso Gardens, in the "hard to DJ-at" Boddy House. From personal experience, my husband and I were nothing but impressed by his professionalism. He is honestly a professional businessman.
If you want Lee to DJ your wedding, call, text, email....book him NOW. Yes, he is AMAZING and even made my husband and I a playlist after the wedding because he knows how much I love music!! He books up fast, and he's a great businessman. You can check out his Kindle book on Amazon for resources and tips, just to get an idea of how awesome he is.
Hey Mister DJ is his company. He pulled up in his cool black minivan, set up all his equipment, and DJ-ed the hell out of my wedding. He'll do the same for you!
Thank you again for everything Lee! I hope to need him again in the future!! :D
Kelly · Married on 10/07/2017
We keep getting comments about how amazing our DJ and his music were. Lee sent us DJ Patrick and he was great. We talked about both my and my husbands music tastes and created a customized list of music that really represented our tastes. He was professional and timely with communication. We even have friends who came to our wedding that just had to get his card for their wedding that will be coming up!Sent on 10/11/2017

Diann · Married on 07/15/2017
Lee is a HUGE part of the reason our wedding (July 2017) was so awesome. His music (and lighting!) kept people on the dance floor way longer than I ever could have imagined. In fact, I saw friends and family -- people I've literally never seen dance before -- be persuaded to let loose because it may literally be impossible to sit still when Lee is DJ'ing.Sent on 01/29/2018
I should add that Lee is incredibly professional, unobtrusive and he gives great advice. In short -- you want this guy on your team for every event where you want people to have fun. Five hugely enthusiastic stars!!!

I don't generally write reviews, but DJ Chris was so great on our wedding day, I feel like I have to. There was a white-knuckled moment when we had our first DJ drop out on us late in the game but DJ Chris swung in and saved the day. From the first meeting, we could tell we were in the hands of a true professional, not to mention someone who really enjoys his work. On the day of the wedding, his cues and playlists were absolutely seamless, and he was perfect on the microphone – that is, he kept the party moving and lively without being cheesy at all. I saw friends out there dancing who NEVER dance. That tells you something. I recommend DJ Chris to anyone with no hesitation at all.Sent on 06/30/2017
Hey Mister DJ's reply:So glad you were happy with Chris. He's one of our best and really knows how to read a crowd. We truly appreciate your business and our best wishes to you both!
