About this pro
29 years in business
70 hires on Thumbtack
We had about 165 guests for my daughter's wedding on April 29, 2017. I first learned about Bob Cuthbert of Dream DJs on Thumbtack last September. I proceeded to read all the reviews and knew immediately that I wanted Bob for our wedding. He has been in the business for many, many years and had also been a DJ. He was very familiar with the music we wanted. After we secured him for our DJ, we corresponded mostly by email and sometimes by phone. He was always prompt in responding As this was our first wedding, he sent us lots of helpful information. We sent him a list of what we wanted for Cocktail Hour and what we wanted for the balance of the night. We even threw in a few revisions. He played EVERY song we asked for!!! I sent him a Time Line and he followed it flawlessly, asking a question here or there to make sure he understood exactly what we wanted. He was a perfect DJ, making just the right remarks when needed and had a great light show also. Many of our guests kept telling us how great he was. His pricing was more than fair and when asked if he could stay an extra hour, he did. He kept the reception running on time with the bridal party entrance, dinner-dismissing tables, toasts, announcements, cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss. We couldn’t have asked for a more professional person. Bob did a perfect job and I will use him again if I ever have need and enthusiastically refer him to my friends. And did I say that the Bride and Groom LOVED him and his style too!!! Thank you, Bob.May 4, 2017VerifiedRobert C.'s reply

Thanks for keeping the party going and the awesome disco ball.Nov 1, 2016VerifiedRobert C.'s reply
I love doing themed events and this one was amazing because everyone really got into the Era. Leisure suits, platform (disco) shoes, bell bottoms etc. It really was a step back in time. Thank you so much Julie!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We love doing these events, so we keep our quotes very reasonable. We have done shows from 1 hour to 12 hours in length. The sound equipment needed varies with the size of the venue. We offer DJ lighting and karaoke for no extra charge, but some customers request additional stage or other lighting. All jobs are different, so it is not possible to have a "one price fits all".
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Dream DJs is a full service company. It doesn't matter if your event is easy or elaborate. Well planned or impromptu. We are happy to help. After finding out what kind of music you like, we'll schedule the appropriate DJ. You are welcome to send us an entire music list if you want. We will have all those songs "at the ready". Weddings are where we usually spend the most time working with our customers. We are happy to help couples create a complete itinerary and timeline for no extra charge.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?The most important thing for DJs and KJs is staying up to date with music. I listen to KIIS-FM, KFRG, KROQ and other new music stations regularly. Recently while doing a private party, I got a nice compliment from a teenager. He walked up to my DJ stand and said "You're pretty fly for an old guy!" He probably listens to his parents Offspring CDs.
