Introduction: Hi everyone! The pandemic is starting to get a bit easier and your favorite DJ is back and available to DJ your event! Not only are you getting a DJ/ MC. You are hiring someone who will make a point to team with your coordinator, without stepping on toes, of course. I have DJ'd 40+ weddings now (even though the number on the app just says 17) and have found that having an extra person who has taken the time to know the itinerary back to front to aid the coordinator in announcements and helping heard crowds to certain areas (e.g. cocktail hour, bride/groom re-entry etc). On top of all of that I have always make a point to have at least 1 (but hopefully 2 ) meetups at the couple's leisure, to go over music preference, ceremony cues/reception cues and anything else that eases the couple's mind. Lastly, there will be an extra gas charge for events held over 50 miles away from Seattle, WA.

DJ Dane is the best! He is so flexible and accommodating. We requested him about 2 weeks before our wedding and he was quick to respond to emails and texts. He made sure that every song we wanted for our wedding was on his list, even the hard to find songs that we couldn't even find, he found! He even took the extra step in choosing songs for us based off of our musical preference. Dane also had no problem making announcements for us throughout the night, even last minute announcements we requested at the last minute. He does not make you feel pressured or stressed either. I didn't have one of the songs picked our until the day of, and he was totally on top of it and had the song downloaded already! He really made our night special by choosing our last dance song of the night for us and it was the most fitting and perfect way to end our night! Our guests complimented us on having such a fabulous DJ as well! Thank you for being there for us at our wedding! P.s. If you are a Third Eye Blind fan, DJ Dane is the DJ you MUST have at your wedding!

DJ Dane has been a joy to work with from the start! He was kind enough to consider our budget, provide a contract, organize our guests' song suggestions, and collaborate with our day of coordinator for our wedding. His responses were always prompt and professional. On the day of, everyone dancing enjoyed the music and a good bunch of us danced until the end of the night. He kept our wedding moving smoothly and always checked in with us for the next activity to ensure the night ran accordingly. He offered suggestions when we weren't sure what songs to keep or toss depending on the atmosphere and took guest suggestions during the event for those who weren't able to get their suggestion in prior when we had asked for them. Highly recommend and would recommend him to anyone I know who needs a kind and professional DJ!

Look no further for a DJ. Dane is your guy! When I first started my hunt for a DJ, he was so quick to respond and answered all of my crazy questions my wedding planning book said to ask. He answered it with such professionalism and a way in which I could understand. Dane was able to come out to our venue before the week before the wedding and meet with us about what our vision was and how he would create that vision for us. He showed up early on the day of the event, dressed nicely and fully prepared. He ran our ceremony music, which I was most nervous for! But he crushed it, the music was on cue and went smoothly. We tried something new where we introduced our bridal party and had them walk out to songs we picked for them. It was so great and Dane was so accommodating and asked clarifying questions to make sure it went exactly How we wanted it to. The music all night was such a wide variety that got everyone all of ages out on the dance floor. I can honestly only say great things about Dane!

FAQs

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

    My prices are all inclusive. Meetups, phone calls, music downloads, travel. All of it is included in the quotes!

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

    I give everyone a run down of how I go about my business during events. I let them know that I have a restaurant background and can help manage the event with the coordinator so everything is going off at the right points in time. After that I let the client lead the charge as far as what they want and how they want to go about it. My main focus is for you to know that once you hire me you know that I know your event and music selection back to front.

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

    I’ve been DJing for 8 years and have been in the restaurant industry for 11. So I get how events like this are supposed to run, and I know how to get the crowd moving with my music selection.
