DJ Dr. Rico is the best! He was responsive and professional and always answered any questions we had. He worked in our song requests and read the room really well. He knew what to play to keep the energy high and good vibes going. Most of our wedding guests were on the dance floor for the entire night! His good energy is contagious! He even joined us on the dance floor for the last song of the night. 10/10 would recommend him for your wedding or function!!!

DJ Dr. Rico was an amazing addition to our special day! His DJ services at our 25th wedding anniversary vow renewal ceremony was exactly what we wanted to make our day fun and exciting! DJ Dr. Rico’s work quality and professionalism made the day stress free. I really appreciated his quick responsiveness from the minute I reached out to him for services and it continued over several months and throughout the day of the event. I chose DJ Dr. Rico, because of his eagerness to make our day special. His mission was to make us happy and he did not disappoint. The quality of his equipment and setup was of high quality. The event was held outside and he was sure to provide lighting and microphones for our usage. He worked closely with us to add music to the poem that would play during the ceremony. It was done with the great quality and presentation. He arrived on time and stayed until the time he was contracted even though the event was winding up. Awesome time management! I highly recommend DJ Dr. Rico for any DJ services. I will definitely use his services again.

Details: Anniversary party • 25 - 49 guests • 51 or older • R&B / soul • Hip-hop / Rap • Outdoor venue • MC services

DJ Dr. Rico was wonderful to work with! He was extremely professional and prompt with his responses and questions. During the party, he was responsive to requests and did a great job adapting to changes and new situations. He got a lot of people to dance by changing up the music to suit peoples' tastes and by actually dancing with everyone himself. I can't recommend him enough.

Details: Wedding • 25 - 49 guests • 18 - 30 years old • 31 - 50 years old • 51 or older • Latin • Home

DJ Rico did a wonderful job DJing for my parents 90th birthday party. I was a little concerned because he was so young, playing all the old folks music, but did a perfect job. He even came out and danced, and taught dance to the old farts. It was fun. I picked DR Rico because he was the first to respond to my inquiry. His response was polite, and informative. I think he should smile in his photo, just because the first response is I'm fun. But don't let that fool you, he is fun.

Details: Birthday party • 50 - 99 guests • 51 or older • Oldies • Outdoor venue

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Because I am a new up-and-coming DJ, I like to keep my prices low and fair. With me, you're likely to pay a lower rate than with other DJ's BUT the vibes will still be memorable!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to greet my new potential customer's with enthusiasm and professionalism that lets them know they would make a great choice choosing my services! I offer free phone/video consultations to discuss the needs, desires, plans and ideas that the client has for the event so I can work to bring it into fruition. After completion of the phone consultation and when a customer decides they want to work with me, I draft an official and legal contract to ensure things are carried out the right way to protect the client. After the contract has been signed by both parties (myself and the client) and the deposit has been received, the date for their event will officially be locked in. Customers will be provided my email and phone number so we can periodically touch base throughout the process of working together. I make it my goal to constantly follow up and check-in with my clients, to ensure quality of service is upheld and customer satisfaction is maintained at the highest level!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Bachelor Degree in Biomedical Sciences and a Master Degree in Biomedical Sciences. I will soon be pursuing my Master degree in Urban/Public Health. Although these degrees do not directly relate to the entertainment and DJ field, I have learned efficient time management, professionalism, punctuality, dedication, and hard work, which I'm positive will serve my clients well!
