DJ Pandabara worked with us to finds the best ways stay within our budget while providing the services we wanted. When the day of the wedding came and last minute changes were asked of him, DJ Pandabara was willing to switch things up in order to accommodate the groom's wishes! Thank you DJ Pandabara!!!!Jan 3, 2018VerifiedDJ PANDABARA LLC's reply
Hi Jeninne! Thank you for the review it is greatly appreciated. Happy New Year to you and thank you for trusting in me to do your daughters wedding. It was awesome. Thanks again!
DJ Panda did a amazing job. He mixed in my daughters play list with mine and knew what the crowd wanted to hear. I highly recommend him and would definitely use him for future events. He’s extremely professional and will do what it takes to make your event special.Dec 21, 2017VerifiedDJ PANDABARA LLC's reply

Thank you so much Kortney! I had a blast playing for you and and your guests. You have such awesome and competitive friends. Happy, happy birthday again!!!
Mike aka DJ Pandabara was amazing! I was planning a surprise party in California from another state. Naturally, I was nervous about working with someone from a different location. However, Mike was beyond thorough, knowledgable and pleasant to speak with on the phone. So, naturally I had to hire him. Hiring Mike is not only a wise selection, but an educational opportunity. He's very informed on his passion and even aware of set up options I even was aware of. His insight allowed us to have a stellar party with great a great sound system, lights and even a huuuuge projector. I would recommend Mike and his assistant, Fernando, to anyone! P.S. And one more thing! Mike unfortunately hurt himself the week prior to my event and quickly let me know his status. I nervous as I thought he as letting me know he'd have to cancel. However, he reassured me that not only was he coming, he was brining Fernando to help throughout the event. Talk about true customer service! Mike, I hope you're feeling better and keep up the great work!Sep 3, 2017VerifiedDJ PANDABARA LLC's reply
Thank you so much Tiffany for the review. You have such a lovely and fun family to work with. I had fun playing for you guys and providing you with what you guys wanted and needed for your moms surprise 60th birthday. Enjoy the rest of your Labor Day weekend and hope to see you again sooner than later. Take care!
Michael Abara was so great to work with for my August wedding. From day 1, he was responsive, friendly, and willing to do what it took to make our event successful. He was also competively priced which helped us in the vendor selection process. We were looking for a DJ who could also be an MC, and he could do it all. He worked well with our wedding planner, and helped our wedding be “the best wedding with the best music” according to our guests. He even helped with a surprise video of my matron of honor who couldn't make the wedding. She sent him a video to play during the reception, which was the best part ever. I’d definitely book him again for an event in LA/SF!Aug 30, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do have a standard pricing system for regular private parties. When it gets to something extravagant that's going to be in a ballroom, banquet hall, restaurant, such as a wedding, sweet 16, corporate, etc. I have a different standard pricing for those types of event. I'm always flexible, negotiable, fair, and willing to beat others prices.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Usually it would be a meet up on site or a phone call. I'd like to get to know my client on a personal level to understand what he/she wants for their event and to fulfill their wants and needs as a DJ/MC. Also I know times are tight and I'm always willing to work with my clients requested budget even sometime under it. Once all is in agreement between my client and I, then contracts are explained then signed. You are more than welcome to think about our discussion about your event before making your final decision and agreeing on hiring me as your DJ/MC. There is no pressure or hassle on any of my potential clients. I want my clients to make a sound and solid decision upon hiring me.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?It doesn't really take to much to learn how to DJ. If you can keep stay in rhythm and beat you're good to go. Now when it comes to the technical side of sound and hooking up PA boards, mixers, speakers etc. All the training of hooking up sound equipment came from when I was in middle school doing DJ gigs left and right. Of course I learned on the way and studied things on my own through books and videos. No my church has me doing the sound, and I also do sound and DJ for one of the biggest comedy clubs in the world which is the Long Beach Laugh Factory.
