DJ Dave was our DJ, emcee, and source of calm guidance for our wedding this past Saturday. We highly recommend him and enjoyed working with him through the process. Our event was more intimate with 40 guests and Dave provide music for our procession, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and dance floor. He also provided announcements when transitioning between each part which we appreciated. He was the perfect presence with a light touch and thoughtful guidance as much of this was new to us. His initial planning form was greatly appreciated as was his encouraging us to provide a list of songs that we wanted. He said many times that this is our event, We had multiple generations at the event and he filled in beautifully with tunes that appealed to everyone! He was also prepared by providing wireless mics for the toasts and ceremony. His audio quality was also very good as any videos had music with good sound quality in the background. DJ Dave is a joyful professional to work with.

Details: Wedding • 25 - 49 guests • 18 - 30 years old • 51 or older • 31 - 50 years old • Oldies • Top 40 • Rock • R&B / soul • Pop • Community center • Lighting • MC services

DJ Dave was great at our backyard wedding. We had about 35 guests and he had us dancing all night. His professionalism is unmatched. He gave us confidence going into the wedding that everything was going to be great. He played the right songs at the right times during the ceremony. He responded when we requested songs. His equipment was top notch. It was great chatting with him before and after. He’s not only a great DJ but a great human.

DJ Dave was absolutely terrific! He was extremely professional, punctual, and he put us at ease regarding our wedding ceremony. He has a thorough checklist that covers all the bases related to all facets of a wedding. We had a long list of things to worry about and DJ Dave was at the bottom. He's also a super interesting guy to talk to about San Francisco and hip hop. I would highly recommend DJ Dave for your wedding.
