About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I have 40+ years experience in the music business, both as a performer, a technician (sound & lighting), and as a DJ/MC. East Bay Digital Sound is not a large company. When you work with me you get a very personal experience. I care very much about your event. I never send anyone else to do my job. If you hire my company, I will personally work with you and I will personally show up to your event and give you my undivided attention through the whole process. My company charter is based on the 'no surprises' concept. That means I give you a quote and that quote represents the cost of getting ALL of my services. One price. No 'come on' offer and then adding hundreds of dollars to the quote later. Clients love this model of conducting business because they know what they will be spending when they make the decision to contact me. And of course they love the service package they get from me. One good example is up-lighting. I use a $7K, state-of-the-art, up-lighting system and don't charge extra to have it at your event. Try getting that from someone else. They won't even have that kind of high tech equipment, no less offer to you included in the original price. Other examples are extensive dance floor lighting, premium sound and microphone support for your wedding ceremony, projectors and HD screens if needed, and too much more to even list here. I have been a high level computer consultant for a major corporation for many years. So East Bay Digital Sound is not about earning a living for me. It is about my love of music and entertainment. I take every job very personally. I take pride in my work. I want you to love to work with me and I want you to be able to tell your friends that your experience with me was the best you could have hoped for.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love providing the very best entertainment packages at the very best prices. I love being around fun events. I also love making other musicians sound their very best in live music situations. I love to DJ a crowd and get them dancing and having a great time. I love going to bed at night knowing that you can't find better equipment, more experience, a larger music selection, a person more fun to work with, or a more complete package anywhere else in the Bay Area.

    Rob is a complete professional with so much experience in the arena of DJing for events. His services come with wireless microphones, lapel microphones, music during dinner, and uplighting. He's incredibly detailed oriented and even gave us a recording of our ceremony which was such a sweet gift since we didn't have a videographer for the wedding. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs DJ/AV services for any event. Rob is amazing!

    Rob was an excellent choice for my daughter's wedding!!! He kept close communication throughout the whole wedding planning process. His experience helped with suggestions and planning of how my daughter should put everything together. Rob is extremely professional and offers extremely professional services with his talents and exceptional equipment. The ceremony and reception were held in two different areas of a park and he was easily able to accommodate both of these areas with ease with the top notch professionalism and equipment. I would highly recommend him for any event. He is the King of Master of Ceremonies!! I would rehire him in a heartbeat!

    Rob and East Bay Digital Sound is the absolute way to go for any of your future events! We hired Rob to DJ our wedding and his professional expertise helped contribute to making our wedding day extra memorable. Rob made himself easily accessible throughout the entire wedding planning, helping to ensure our day ran smoothly and meeting all our wants and needs. As music and a great sound system are vital components of a wedding, it was very easy for my husband and I to put all our trust into Rob, because he is extremely knowledgeable and professional. His top notch sound system, light display, and digital library were spectacular throughout the entire day. During the reception, Rob kept all the necessary events moving along in a timely manner, personalizing special songs throughout the night. The dance floor was always full, as Rob knew all the right music to keep the party going. We HIGHLY recommend East Bay Digital Sound! Rob, Thank you so much!

    Robert is incredible! I can't begin to explain how vital a DJs work is to an event moving smoothly and enjoyably, mainly because I didn't truly understand the value until after my own wedding! After witnessing how influential Robert and East bay digital was to the flow, fun, and passion of my big night it became clear that without his exceptional talents, amazing charisma, and unbeatable equipment I would have never had the event I thought I could have!!! He is an Allstar in an industry that is washed out, generic, and unprofessional. Roberts passion and commitment to his customers is unprecedented and so incredibly refreshing. His attention to detail is amazing and his experience shines through! He was so key in making sure the entire event went off without a hitch. He is a event planner, coordinator, party MC, and musical magician all rolled into one! He is the only option when it comes to wedding DJs in the Bay Area!

    We found Rob here, and he was warm, responsive, and thorough in his correspondence with us. It was easy to work with him because he gave is a simple form to fill out and asked a lot of follow up questions. He played the correct music at the right time and gave us suggestions on how to get the crowd dancing. We had him help us with our ceremony, and he did a great job with providing mics and making sure everything went smoothly. During the wedding he was constantly coordinating with us on the time line and flexible with moving things forward. We can't recommend him highly enough. THANK YOU Rob!

    DJ Rob provided the music for our daughter's 16th birthday party. Everyone was up on the dance floor as he played a mix of my daughter's requests and those of her friends. Prior to the event Rob made sure that he was serving all our needs for the party from providing uplights, plenty of lights and lasers on the dance floor and the music we wanted to hear!

    East Bay Digital Sound was exactly what we wanted!
    We are SO glad we went with Rob (East Bay Digital Sound) to be the DJ at our wedding! Rob gave us a very helpful list of questions at the very beginning of the planning for us to start thinking about songs, lighting, and overall progression of the night. We picked our main songs and let Rob use his expertise to determine all the other songs, which worked out perfectly. Rob helped us with the timeline of the wedding too which was so great because we really had no idea where to begin. We had great communication with Rob through the planning process. I even called him the morning of the wedding and told him some last minute changes that I wanted to make and he made them happen without me having to worry about it. The dancing was fun, the music was great, and the lighting was beautiful. Rob provided us with exactly what we wanted and then exceeded our expectations. We wish we could give him more stars!

    We hired Rob to DJ our wedding and he did an incredible job. We had chatted with a few DJs, and the biggest concern for others was that we wanted music and mic access in three locations at the venue - out on a lawn, in a reception hall and on a deck. I mentioned it to Rob during our first chat and he was confident it was no big deal - he had wireless everything. He was great to chat with and his years of experience and professionalism put my mind at ease, so we hired him. About a month out, he sent a very thorough document asking for all the details for the wedding - from ceremony through to dancing. He was flexible with my few edits and worked well with the day of coordinator as she stepped in. On the day, he nailed it. We had zero sound issues, perfect volume and he was the friendliest and most pleasant guy. We've had so many comments about the song choices, the lights setup and how great the dancing was (he played something for everyone). Plus - when my Dad came out on the dance floor dressed as batman - he pulled up the soundtrack within seconds. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ and would recommend Rob to anyone!
    Rob G. Sep 30, 2016

    Hi Melody. Thank you so very much for the kind words. Your entire wedding day was really a blast. You both are wonderful people and your family and friends were great too. I had a lot of fun. Funny, I have thousands of theme songs and special effects and I have wondered if I would ever get to use any of them. When I was asked if I could possibly come up with the Batman theme song, I was so excited to finally get to use one. It showed me that I should always have them all with me because you just never know ....... :-) Thanks again. And I wish you both the best of everything in life. Rob

    Rob G. Sep 1, 2016

    Hi Raquel. Thank you for your review. It was a fair review. I thought we had said that your event would want Latin music mixed with contemporary music for the teens, etc. When I found out that Latin music was desired for the whole event, I admit I was a little caught off guard. But I don't get caught off guard twice. I have since done my homework and loaded the top 100 Cumbia, Banda, Bachata, Merengue, and Salsa songs, according to several music services, into my system. Next time I will be ready :-) Thank you for letting me be a part of your special celebration. It is always an honor for me to be hired for such important events. Regards to you, Giovanni, and Giovanna. Rob

  • Jessica S. Aug 28, 2016
    Rob was the DJ at our wedding in July. From the beginning, Rob was available and easy to communicate with. He was able to answer all of our questions and give a good idea to how the night of the wedding would evolve. Rob was very organized and made sure he had all of the information he needed before the day so it would run smoothly. Rob came with an assistant and set everything up a few hours early. The sound for the outdoor ceremony was great and he had microphones for the officiant and the groom. The lighting outdoors was a nice addition and in the photos it looks very good. He followed our program very well and was a good emcee. The shoe game was great! It made everyone laugh and added a nice touch to the evening. He played most of the music which I had asked him to and I was happy about this! The dance part of the evening was a lot of fun and Rob took suggestions to improve the music so everyone was happy. We would recommend him to our friends :) Thanks Rob for being a part of our unforgettable day!

    Rob was super professional, on time, and did a wonderful job as an entertainer for the event. He was kind and attentive with me (bride) and my husband. He did seem to have a little bit of trouble with reading the crowd but took requests and had people dancing soon.
    Rob G. Aug 9, 2016

    Thank you Graciela for the review. I like to always be honest with clients. You are right that in the very beginning I had a little bit of trouble with reading the crowd. This was because I was getting one group of people who kept coming up to me and asking for more Latin music and one group of people who kept coming up to me saying to play just hip hop. So it was a little tricky for me. But once Emiliano said to stick to hip hop we did well and you are also right that I always enjoy taking requests, especially from the bride and groom, because then I know I am giving them exactly what they want.

    Rob and his assistant were DJs at our outdoor wedding reception in Berkeley. Rob was very responsive from the beginning and it was obvious that he has a lot of experience. He is organized, reliable and very passionate about what he does and really worked hard to make the event a success. He has very high quality equipment and a variety of equipment. He basically has anything you could possibly need for a large event, whether indoor or outdoor, including a projector, screen, wireless microphone, lighting. He made sure that he had all the songs we wanted to have played beforehand. He also has a huge library of songs and is able to access almost any song on the fly. He came very early to set up. He had quite a few challenges to deal with because of the nature of the venue but handled them and managed to keep the party going. His fee is very reasonable for the amount of effort he puts in and the equipment that he has. After our wedding was over, I realized how challenging it is to be a wedding DJ and trying to juggle the wishes of the bride & groom with the wishes of guests and also trying to keep people on the dance floor. I think Rob does this very well.
    Rob G. Jul 12, 2016

    Rob and East Bay Digital Sound was amazing at our wedding! We interviewed him along with a few others and while his setup was easily the most impressive of all the DJs we talked to, what impressed us the most was his personality. He gave us a short questionaire to fill out that answered pretty much every question he would have had for our wedding, so organizing was completely painless. Our ceremony was outdoors, and he had a separate setup for the music for the ceremony. Volume was perfect, and he mic'd the Officiant so everyone could hear him without him needing to yell. The reception was perfect as well. He made no mispronounciations the entire night, including the introductions. Perfect calming music selection for dinner, Made the room look great with tons of remote-controlled up-lights, and had everyone dancing the entire time (no moments where everyone decided to leave the dance floor because of a particular song, etc). He even had a laser light show on the walls, including our names! That was something we weren't expecting. Finally, right before the dancing, he MC'd the shoe game. This is something that the DJ can try to make about himself, but Rob kept the crowd into it and made sure it was about us and not him. Lots of fun. He announced the final 2 songs to make sure no one was surprised, and only plugged himself once during the entire night (no "DJ FunkyFlex!!!!" between every song, which was really nice). 5 Stars, definitely would recommend him for your party!

    Thank you so much for the very kind words. I really enjoyed entertaining at your wedding. Everyone was so nice; even the staff was really great. I still have a wedding present coming to you (Megan knows about) but the editing is taking a little more time than usual so it will be a few more days before I can give it to you. By the way, thank you very much for the extra incentive at the end of the night. Very much appreciated. Call me any time in the future you or anyone you know needs my type of services.

    I have no hesitation when giving Rob at East Bay Digital Sound 5 stars for being the DJ at my wedding on April 10, 2016. After the wedding was over several of our guests complimented me about how great a job Rob had done. The Equipment that he used is top of the line. A few weeks before the wedding he sent me an email to request the information he needed and I was relieved to see the attention to detail. I called him on the phone and we spoke for a least 10 minutes answering all of my questions and other details. I will start with the ceremony. Rob had the microphone for the ceremony clipped on my tux in less than 30 seconds and it was hardly noticeable. This made such difference not to have to hold a microphone and afterwards, everyone I spoke with said they could hear us clearly. Ceremony music and exit music were right on cue and sounded good. For the reception, the uplighting looked really great. As is got darker outside the reception hall was transformed into an awesome party atmosphere. I was outside the hall taking some last photos with the photographer and looking in through the windows watching everyone dancing and having a good time really solidified what a great choice we had made when choosing East Bay Digital. He had a good mix of songs to get everyone dancing and played music all the way until the end. We chose to play the shoe game and it was a huge hit and got lots of laughs. Rob has been entertaining for many years and in my opinion it showed. Great job Rob!

    Rob was the DJ for my wedding on 4/9/16. Pros: Communicative (emails, ect) Has good equipment (sound, uplighting, ect) Cons: -Talks waaay too much. I'm not sure why he bothered having us pick songs, he had them on really low in the background, or would start them after rambling for 5 minutes. "And now we're going to cut the cake. Look at the happy couple at the cake. Blah blah blah cake... Let's play some music while they cut the cake.." We didn't get to hear the song until after his narrative, and only did because it took us so long to cut because we were having trouble with it. Everything in the wedding was narrated heavily by him. -Does not understand wedding ambiance. I walked in and the lights were so bright you couldn't even see the uplighting. There was a tacky laser show on the dance floor, along with a horrific scroll of congratulation text streaming across the headtable wall like we were at a 16 year olds birthday party. -Doesn't know how to read the crowd/DJ: he played ONE slow song, which I missed because I was at the photobooth. He kept playing songs for a 16 year olds birthday party, even though there was only 8 people on the dance floor and several couples came out for the one slow song (im told) -He turned off our first dance song 20 seconds in. Apparently my husband *looked* at him so once he finally started the song after he narrated our entrance (I had said to have us walk out to our song and start our dance right away) and shortly after dimmed the song out. When we looked at him upset and confused he brought it back on after apologizing to us profusely over the mic, during our first dance. Moral of the story: If you are hiring him to DJ a school dance, he's great. A wedding, look elsewhere.

    We had Rob for a campus event at the Rotunda and we were indeed very very impressed with his professionalism and enthusiasm. From the very first call we made, Rob was personal, responsive, helpful and passionate. Rob and his incredibly amazing equipment together became the centerpiece of our night at Rotunda. The night before the event he called to make sure everything was on track. He was very punctual for event set-up. The lights were just right for a black-tie event. We have a young group of audience that spans different ethnicity and Rob took our song requests into great consideration and engaged 400+ attendants. Our team sincerely thank him for making a great night for us and definitely would recommend Rob to anyone who want a memorable night like we did!

    Thank you so much for the kind words. I personally had a blast doing the event. You all were great. Everyone was so nice not only to me but to each other. There were so many different types of people and everyone seemed to get along famously. The event venue was unbelievable. Last night was the first time I did an event there. Getting in and out and getting everything ready was pretty tricky but it was so worth it. I hope I get to work for your group again. It was be my sincere pleasure to do so. And congratulations to all the 2016 graduates. I remember my college days. Hard work. I am proud of all of you even though I don't know you all individually. I wish you successful careers in whatever endeavors you choose to take on in the future. And sooner or later many of you will get married to Call Me LOL. Many thanks, Rob

    Rob (East Bay Digital Sound) was hired for my DJ at my wedding on January 30, 2016. Rob was very professional and kept in constant contact with me from the day I hired him to the day of the wedding. He replied to all my emails and phone calls promptly. You can really tell he takes great pride in what he does and even helped me plan my schedule for the reception to ensure guests were dancing all night. He was very flexible with my timeline of events that I gave him prior to the wedding (I had to move the cutting of the cake later than expected and start the dancing earlier). He just kept saying “it's up to you" and "whatever you want” which really reassured me that he would just go with the flow to make sure our day went smoothly. He listened to all my song requests and played everything I wanted, including my guests request as well. I am really thankful that he screens songs before playing them because I would have been mortified if something inappropriate played in front of my nieces and nephews and 90 year old grandmas too. It’s not only respectful that he did that but its shows that he has a great code of ethics. My family kept saying “I have never danced that much before”. I am a very organized and detail oriented person and I liked the fact that he sent me a questionaire of how I want the events organized and the songs I want played for each part. He had it already typed and I just answered each question, which in turn helped me organize the itinerary. Such a time saver!!! I was amazed by his uplighting and he really transformed the room from a normal standard hall to a beautiful, warm and inviting ambience (I didn’t even recognize the room). My mouth literally dropped when I walked in! Seriously, just the lighting itself is worth every penny. And the laser show he did for the kids while they waited for the food was very sweet, heck I was even watching it too.I seriously can’t stop talking about the lighting and the lasers because I was so impressed. Something that was a small gesture that really stuck out at me was when I was cutting my cake. I noticed that while I was cutting the cake, Rob had ran over to the cake cutting area to hold up the uplighting so that the light would shine on us while we cut the cake. We didn’t ask him to do it, it was just something that he did on his own to make sure we had this special moment with the spotlight on us! Thank you Rob again and I would definitely hire you for another event.

    Hi Nicole. Thank you for the very kind review. Your event was great fun. I don't think I've ever had that many guests stay until the very end. I would be honored to work for you again if the opportunity should come up in the future. Many happy and healthy years to you both. You're a great couple! Rob

    Rob dj-ed and mc-ed our wedding last week. He was fantastic. We had quite a few random song requests that he nailed down without having any issues. He had all his equipment ready to go and was so organized. The ceremony was perfect, all our guests could hear us loud and clear. He was great when it came to communication, he wanted to be 100% certain about the pronunciation of the wedding party for the entrance. Rob had all my guests up and dancing the entire wedding it was great. There was not one moment where there was 0 people on the dance floor. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ on such a special day.
  • Bradly M. Jan 5, 2016
    I am overdue in writing this review for the DJ at our December 6th wedding. Actually, he was so much more than just a DJ - his lighting and hazing effects transformed the reception portion of our wedding into an exciting nightclub atmosphere that our guests loved. In planning, Rob answered every phone call (I never got a voicemail greeting) and promptly responded to every email. Which is really good, especially considering that we booked him just 9 days before the wedding. Yes, you read that correctly. We called him the Friday after Thanksgiving, our wedding was 12/6. And just as he promised in that first phone call, our wedding reception was spectacular! Rob and his assistant worked well with our decorator during set-up, and all of his equipment really was beyond what we expected. He played every song we had on our list of wants and was great at reading our crowd and playing the perfect variety. Despite our objections prior to the reception, he was bribed by our minister to play the chicken dance. Ha! Turns out, we loved it and it had everyone, even grandma, up and dancing. We feel incredibly lucky that we called Rob and we would highly recommend him. He made our wedding a fantastic party that we'll never forget, and we are very grateful! The next time we have a big party, he'll be the guy we'll call. And maybe that time we'll give him more than 9 days notice. :) One note, in case you care, this was a marriage of two husbands.

    Pros: Rob was the DJ at wedding and he was absolutely amazing!! He was very patient to work with me when I had a bevy of questions/concerns. In addition, he went above and beyond his duties (in which I paid him for). Highlights include: 1. He helped me make my slideshow video for the father-daughter dance. Everyone LOVED it. It had to be coordinated with the song and his transitions were brilliant. His hard work made a special moment even more special and allowed me to a video montage that I will always cherish. He even gave me a copy of the ppt with the music embedded as a keepsake. We had rented a projector and screen from him and he was able to set it up and take it down in 10 minutes. He was very efficient! 2. Our wedding was unique in that we had A LOT of kids present (45% of the wedding was under 15). He did a laser show with animals that kept the little ones entertained so that their parents could eat during the dinner. He made games to keep the older kids (even some adults) entertained. We got rave reviews from the guests regarding his light show. 3. His ability to be flexible. We decided to move our timeline up and he was able to continue the program seamlessly. We also made changes to the grand entrance at the last minute and he did it without a hitch. 4. Professionalism. He was very early and set up in a timely manner. Everything was ready to go once the guests got there. He was amenable to our situation. We had guests outside the patio area during cocktail hour so he set up speakers outside. He was very engaging with the wedding guests and made them feel at ease. 5. I had asked him to introduce our families. He called me on the phone in order to ensure that he got the pronounciation of the names correctly. We spoke for ~45 minutes on the phone to ensure that we were both on the same page as to what I wanted/needed. 6. Equipment: Rob has state-of-the art equipment. His lighting is gorgeous and the colors are vivid. A lot of people have cheap uplighting which causes lines and problems for videographers (my videographer has experienced this). Thus, with Rob's equipment you won't have to worry about the laser lights affecting your filming. 7. He was extremely prompt in returning messages!! That in itself is a huge plus. Semi-con: I did get negative feedback from the videographer and photographer stating that Rob was not amenable to their requests. Specifically, Rob was shining purple lighting on us (which was very pretty in person) but both the videographer and photographer said it was weird. They asked him to turn it to white and he refused so they had to ask me. Honestly, this is fine because technically, I am his boss as I am the one who hired him. He wants to make sure I am aware of why the lights are bright (instead of the warm, cozy ambiance). That is fine. His positive attributes more than make up for this incident. I would definitely recommend him to others and will do so if asked!!

    I feel very let down by East Bay Digital Sound. With the raving reviews, I expected better. First thing, when I inquired Rob sent me a lot on information. One of which said he provides up lighting which is why I didn’t rent it either. All the photos on his site show beautiful rooms with up lighting. The only area that had up lighting was his DJ area. I relied on that to complete the décor. Let’s begin with the ceremony. He came up to me after saying my wedding party was walking slow so he had to loop the song. We practiced and I spaced out when each group would go according to the full length of the song. While they were walking, I heard him loop the song in the MIDDLE. I thought that was weird. Why not play the whole song? Now let’s go to the end of the ceremony. We did our kiss and faced our guests waiting for our recessional music to start. Rob was just staring at us and we actually had to say “music” for him to get the point to begin the recessional song. Once we got the reception and we were lined up for our intros, Rob told me he wished our officiate held the mic to us to record our I Dos. We didn’t even know he records that. If we had known we would have told our officiate. I thought that was kind of pointless to bring to me attention after it was already done. We had a food truck for dinner. When it came time for Rob to announce dinner he said into the mic to all our guests, “We’re going to take a moment for dinner which is a food truck. I’m not sure how this is going to go” and began walking up to us like he was going to ask so my husband and I started pointing and signaling to our guests the truck was right outside the entrance which was the size of a garage door so the truck could be seen to begin with. It was no surprise we had a food truck. Rob saw it before our intros. That was really annoying and totally killed the flow. If he had questions about how to announce dinner then he should have asked PRIOR rather than saying “I don’t know how this is going to go” in front of all our guests. I have received multiple comments regarding the music selection as well. Guests have TOLD me which no bride wants to hear, that the selection was not that great. We had our first dance to a cover song and Rob played the original song for our guests to dance too. A lot of people thought that was weird and I didn’t appreciate it. That song was no longer a special song for my husband and I. Not only that but we got the dancing going and a few songs in was a slow song. That does not keep the mood and the fun atmosphere going. Rob has an everyday job and he is a DJ on the side. I know he didn’t start working on our wedding until the week of because he emailed me saying so. I feel like he rushed to get everything together and it didn’t come together nicely. Lastly, Rob’s photos show him nicely dressed at his events. I did not appreciate his lack of professional attire. Some of my guests may not have been totally dressed up but that is their decision. If you’re working a wedding, you need to look the part and not wear jeans.

    Rob Goldberg and his assistant Bob are awesome. We hired Rob to DJ our wedding, and he did a fantastic job. He let us pick all the music but we gave him some freedom to pick a lot of the songs. Rob knows how to feel out the crowd and will not play a song if he thinks it will make people sit down. Everyone was getting down on the dance floor and having a ball. Also he included a ton of uplighting and dance floor lighting that other companies would charge extra for. The lighting made the room look ten times better. Everything went smooth from the ceremony to reception and everything inbetween. He supplied the microphones for the groom and officiant as well. We highly recommend Rob and his crew at East Bay Digital Sound. Their prices were extremely reasonable compared to other companies we had looked at. Rob is very passionate about being a DJ and ensuring everyone at the event has a good time.

    We hired Rob to provide music, sound, and lighting for our wedding ceremony and reception. His price was by far the best value we could find for what he offered. The sound for the ceremony was spot on, even though we were outside. For the reception, he had a couple of nice lights set up that gave a great atmosphere (I'm not a huge fan of lots of lights). We got to hear all the songs we wanted to hear and he managed song requests really well.

    We hired Rob for our wedding this past mother's day weekend. The most important things for me in a wedding is the ceremony and the music. I was extremely nervous when it came down to hiring a DJ, especially without seeing them perform at another event before hand. Rob was such a professional!! From the first email down to the end of our wedding night. He had a variety of songs for all generations and cultural groups of guest we had. He also played all the songs I requested before hand and any songs our guest requested as well the day of. Not only was the music great, but He made our plain reception hall look so magical and dreamy with the different lights he added and definitely had some light entertainment for the kids. He suggested playing the "Shoe Game" before starting the dance. Everyone loved it!! Great idea and a must do for a wedding. All of my guest raved about the music and Rob had everyone on the dance floor. Stop looking for another DJ!! Book Rob NOW!! Thanks Rob for an AMAZING day! You went beyond what a regular DJ would do.

    Rob was very detailed and communicative in all of our inquiries. My husband was very impressed with the level of detail he provided in his emails, so we decided to go with him initially as our DJ. Rob definitely had the most advanced and beautiful laser light show I've seen at the weddings I've attended (30+). He was willing to research and play the music that we wanted (trance, which is not typical at weddings). He also was willing to try beat matching, which with any other DJ, would have cost us double what he was charging us. His setup was also professional looking, and it fit in with our elegant winter wedding theme. We spend a lot of money on draping the entire ballroom, so we wanted someone who would have nice looking equipment to match with the ballroom. Thanks, Rob!

    I have the fortune to hire Mr.Robert for my daughter quinceanera events this month . when I start my search to hire a DJ and have many choices, I was confused and hoping i did make the right choice , I payed attention to detail and his website , when I was selecting him . mr Robert was very detail and he answer me all my questions and he communicated fast with me I was happy I felt he was paying attention to his customer attention and help me with all my requested even late nights.

    In August of this year, East Bay Digital Sound coordinated the music and lighting for my daughter's wedding and reception in Half Moon Bay. Rob Goldberg (owner) and Tim (DJ) worked in perfect unison to provide us with an awesome sound and atmosphere. The event lasted a total of 7 hours. EBDS was there early to ensure set up and testing of their equipment, which was faultless all evening. Both of these gentlemen were very professional, flexible, and personable to work with. I highly recommend their service.

    Thank you John. I enjoyed working with you. Perhaps in the future we'll get another chance. That would be nice.

    Rob did an amazing job for my daughter's wedding. The sound and lighting he provided was exactly what we needed for the dancing portion of the wedding reception. Most impressive was Rob's customer service. He was flexible and attentive to our needs. He gave us good advice but allowed us to make our own choices and then honored our choices and followed through in a most professional way. I would highly recommend his company for any DJ, sound/lighting, party/wedding needs!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing is not complicated at all. The only thing that can complicate it a little is if your needs require me to secure outside resources. And even then I will do all the research and come back to you with a firm price that I truly believe will be extremely fair and agreeable. In fact I probably have the most easily understood pricing schedule in the business because there are almost no extra costs when I quote a price.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am reading technical literature all of the time. I am also keeping an eye on the latest technology. For example, I recently converted all of my lighting to wireless so that no wires have to be run from the mixing/lighting consoles to the lights in the stage area. Less clutter, better experience for my clients.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started taking music lessons when I was 7 years old. I fell in love with the music industry and have been playing keyboards professionally and doing sound & lighting ever since college. DJ'ing is relatively new for me but I am a natural because I have the best equipment, a huge music library, a great 'radio' voice, an outgoing personality, and a love for entertaining.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Weddings, birthday parties, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, festival band sound and lighting, school dances, speaker engagements, Quincineras, winery concerts, corporate holiday parties, anniversaries. In fact there is no type of event or type of music I can't handle.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Lots of people can go out, buy a bunch of sound and/or lighting gear, hire a few local friends to DJ, and call themselves a professional sound & lighting company. The best people to trust in this business are musicians, who really appreciate the value of high end sound and lighting. However, many musicians are not reliable. It's just the nature of the industry. So you want to find these qualities in someone you can put your faith in, like me, with many years of high end corporate experience as well as my music experience.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish customers could hear the mediocre quality of so many company's sound so that they could immediately recognize the high quality of my sound at East Bay Digital Sound. As a musician for many years, I have had many bad experiences with sound & lighting guys who were supposedly 'professionals'. A bad sound & lighting experience or a bad DJ experience can ruin an event. I absolutely won't let that happen to your event.
