  5. #5 Jazz It-Up Productions

    (48 reviews)

    Thomas Y.

    Jazz It-Up Productions.that is all. At the beginning of the planning process, I thought the music was going to be the hardest part to organize. My husband and I have two very different types of taste, so I knew finding a DJ we BOTH liked would be extremely difficult. From the beginning, Jazz It-Up Productions WOWed us! They have, hands down the best website. I was able to listen to samples of each of the DJ’s, see a promo video of them “performing” in a wedding environment and other various facts about each of them. This is where I knew Aaron was our guy. He changed my opinions of how hard finding a DJ would be the first time I talked to him. He was literally the most exciting, most easy going "I've got this" type of guy. He explained the process from start to finish; filled us in on what works best and what doesn’t; shared stories and ideas from his past experiences, but most importantly he took time to get to know us. He asked US questions about who we are and what we like. When either of us had a concern about certain songs working together, he took time to explain how the mixing process worked, and even gave us examples. Fast forward through the easy process to the wedding. Along with conversations leading up to the wedding, Aaron showed up to the wedding super stylish and very professional. Even when my MIL changed the Mother/Groom song the morning of, everything ran so smoothly. With Aaron's mixing style and fillers, Aaron had the dance floor packed.literally, ALL.NIGHT.LONG. His theory of “blocking” and suggestions of when to lay what genres is GENIUS. (If you don’t know what I am talking about let him sit down with you and explain it.)There was not a point during the whole reception that the dancefloor was empty! It was amazing. There is a saying, “You get what you pay for”. That certainly is not the case We got so much more. Aaron with Jazz It-Up Productions is extremely talented! Highly recommend!

  6. #6 Silicon Forest Entertainment

    (16 reviews)

    Danielle J.

    Silicon Forest Entertainment DJ'd and MC'd our wedding reception on Halloween and really did a fantastic job of selecting music and keeping the flow of the night moving. Especially considering the fact we didn't really give him any direction on what we wanted or firm up the flow of the evening until just before the event, Craig did a wonderful job of reading the crowd and helping us keep everything organized and streamlined. Everyone enjoyed the music and kept dancing until we closed the place down! Couldn't have been a better Halloween-wedding mashup!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Media Jockeys

What do you love about your job?

I feel so lucky to be a DJ, dance instructor, musician, event promoter, and booking agent, full-time! In my line of work, I get to meet amazing people! I love doing all kinds of events and especially love providing music for weddings! It is truly a dream come true!

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

Honestly, I was born into it. My mom started Celebration Music and Events back in 1980 with just offering up live music options for events. My father is a professional musician so it was a natural fit. Once my brother and I reached high school in 1990, my parents asked us if we wanted to be DJs, and then Media Jockeys took off from there. I was approached a few years later to compete in salsa and swing and fell in love with partner dancing. I do have my master's in music education, so teaching dance came to me easily as well. I have been playing saxophone and singing for years in our band Pressure Point as well. Everything ties in together nicely, and I continually receive inspiration from each aspect of our business!

    Stephanie L.

    David was extremely professional and helped made everything go smoothly. We honestly couldn't have done it without him on our wedding day! The form we got was very helpful and he did very well with accommodating with our requests and we had A LOT of last minute requests. We actually didn't know what we wanted for the reception so we ended up talking to him last minute on the day of and said that he could pretty much take over however he saw fit and it turned out amazing! He read the guests very well and played music that got people up and dancing! He did a great job as M.C and the sound system he had worked very well. He also came early to setup. We highly recommend David for future DJ services!

    Holly H.

    I was so pleased with Dave and how everything turned out for my wedding, first things first, I contacted him back in January about wanting his DJ services for October so he doesn't fully commit you to your date and expect you to pay up front until the day of the event (due to last minute changes). He was so very pleasant and easy to work with. Once I was ready to commit to his business he sent me a questionnaire that was very descriptive down to what songs I wanted when. Once I filled that out (over the extent of a few months) I returned it about a week out from the date and his awesome assistant Katrina called me and went over the whole sheet and said "we will see you on your day"! Everything went so smoothly and I couldn't have asked for a better business to cater to my wedding!! The price was amazing and his services at the wedding exceeded my expectations by far!! I HIGHLY recommend Dave and All Request Live, Inc. for any occasion!!
