DnA was a phenomenal DJ to hire. They are very easy to work with and kept the party going. I could not imagine hiring anyone else, and if i had to do this all over again, I would hire them in a heart beat! They were able to keep people on the dance floor and kept our party going until the very last song! Thank you for making my wedding so memorable!

I've known Derek since we were kids in the same grade-even worked at the same place with him after we graduated. I knew when we were in high school he was going to be in the entertainment business, he just knew how to keep the party going. My wife and I hired Derek and Kelly Zerr to DJ our reception in Iowa last November. They did a fantastic job keeping everything on track in moments when we didn't have all our ducks in a row. Derek came prepared with clean, properly working equipment. I'm not solely biased when I say DnA Music Entertainment is very professional, and I would recommend them to anyone.

DnA Music Entertainment provided music for our wedding reception. They were great at announcing what was going on but letting people enjoy the music the rest of the time. The dance floor was full almost the whole night! When dinner ran long, they suggested some changes to the schedule to get the party going quickly. They followed our 'play' and 'no play' lists well and all had a great time! Thanks!

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

    Every event is different so pricing may vary depending upon what all is needed to make your wedding/event perfect. We don’t set pricing for this reason. No two events are exactly the same, we customize your event to your liking.

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

    Communication is key for me. Knowing what you want in your special day allows me to provide you with memories that will last a lifetime.

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

    Almost 20 years of music background, learning every genre out including but not limited to country, rock, pop, hip hop, r&b, and even Vietnamese & Turkish.
