We were referred to iDj entertainment via one of Marcos associates that was already booked for our date. In the end, we couldn't imagine a better DJ. We are a young couple and he is younger too probably in his late 20s?- and is definitely in touch with what music is cool for dancing. We met with him twice and the second time we gave him a general playlist for dinner and dancing that he used as his base list and then filled in similar music. We also gave him a do not play list so that we would not have things such as the chicken dance- thank God! I don't think he really enjoys that kind of thing either so we were all on the same page. He also mc'd for us which was awesome to announce when we were cutting the cake and doing the garter toss, etc. There was a point in my wedding planning that I was actually considering not having a dj because I wasn't sure that a lot of my guests wanted to dance but I couldn't have been more wrong. I am sure the open bar helped but the music was great and had people dancing all night long. Including my older family members. These are people that usually hate dancing too. He was also great about working with our venue. He was required to work off a laptop and use the hotel's speakers and other details but thankfully he called the hotel manager in advance and found out he needed extra equipment that he doesn't normally have to take with him. I am so grateful he made that call and I think it speaks to his professionalism. I would recommend him for any occasion that requires the services of a DJ!

"I was recommended to Marcos from iDj because he was someone who could work within my budget and was available on the date we had planned for our wedding, which was coming up must faster than either my fiancé or I had expected! This was my first time booking a DJ for anything and I was booking him for the most important night of my life! Obviously, I was freaking out a bit. Luckily, at our first meeting, Marcos turned out to be a complete pro but without being all about business. He was laid back, walked me through everything he needed from me and put me at ease. Marcos made it easy to design the music around the event, make changes as the planning came together and even pull a few adjustments on the actual night! I was completely blown away when I showed up to the venue with just how prepared Marcos was and how extensive his equipment and song list was! If any of my guests had a request, Marcos was on it! He worked fluidly with us and the venue to make sure that everything was set up on time and working through out the night! And he did a GREAT JOB of keeping things running and upbeat all night! When it was time to bring things down, Marcos knew the right song. When it was time to get people up and dancing, he had the perfect track! With having to plan our own wedding and with everything that went into it, we probably only gave Marcos a handful of "must play" songs. From there, he planned out the rest of the track list and we could not have been happier! No complaints here but plenty of recommendations!"

My husband and I had a very specific desire for our wedding day: we wanted all of our guests to feel exhausted from the fantastic party by the end of the night. We realized right a way that music was the key component to make our wish come true. We found Marcos largely by accident at a nightclub in Los Angeles. Throughout the evening, we were so impressed with the wide array of music he played and found that we never wanted to sit down all night. When we approached him to inquire about his services, we found him surprisingly amicable and professional (these are not personality traits I associate with most djs). We booked him for our wedding, and could not have been happier. The room was electric and our (very large) dance floor was never empty. Our guests still rave to us 3 years about how much fun our wedding was, and how the music was so fantastic. I couldn't agree with them more. I highly recommend Marcos to anyone planning any sort of event in which music is a vital component. He knows his craft and will work closely with you to make your desires a reality. Thanks Marcos!

It was an absolute pleasure working with IDJ Entertainment during our whole wedding planning process. From the beginning Marcos was very accommodating to our busy schedules and was willing to meet with us at any time and place that was most convenient for us. He has done various events and is definitely an expertise in the field. However, if he had any doubts or questions he always made sure to clear it up with us and even worked with our wedding coordinator at La Venta during the year to make sure that everything would run ok for the wedding day. He allowed us to share our ideas with him and he gave us his professional recommendations to help smooth out our wedding day schedule. In addition, he was very easy to reach and very prompt in answering emails or addressing any concerns that we may have had.
Our venue was very unique in that it consisted of many rooms instead of just one reception room so we were concerned that our guests would get lost or confused during the event. However, the wedding day was a huge success for us and Marcos definitely helped the whole night run a lot smoother by successfully directing our guests from one room to another and making sure that everyone was on the same page. Marcos was also a terrific MC. His professionalism balanced with his sense of humor and warm personality added flavor to the night. His wonderful mixes of music and ability to cater songs to various types of guests kept all of our family members and friends dancing all night! We are completely thankful to IDJ Entertainment for making our wedding day so perfect and we are happy that they were able to share our special day with us!
