DJ Will was our wedding DJ at Ethereal Open Air Resort on February 9, 2018. He was incredible. Highly recommend. Will was extremely attentive and thorough from the time we met him (5 months earlier), until the music stopped at the end of the wedding reception. He has an very...

Recently got married and we have nothing but good things to say about Will and Dancing DJ Productions. Will is organized, professional, and very easy to work with. Will is very accommodating to whatever music preferences you may have. Execution was absolutely flawless and our... Read More guests had a fantastic time! In addition, we used Will's photo booth, which was a hit for all our guest - young and old. The photo booth adds another dimension to the event and provides many great memories. Not only do your guests get to take home the pictures, but you also get a complete booklet of every picture that was taken (includes a usb stick with the images too)! Bottom line: Dancing DJ Productions is highly recommended!!!

Mitch was the emcee and DJ for our wedding in Jan 2018 and he was fantastic. - He met with us in person prior to the wedding to go through our many questions. He was on-time, professional, knowledgeable, and did a lot to set our minds at ease. We walked out of that meeting...

Mitch was on time, had his equipment set up for both the ceremony and reception, and the sound (music and microphone) was crystal clear during the ceremony. As with most things during a wedding, no news is good news, and we had no news from Mitch throughout the night so we never had to worry about anything on his side. Such a relief to have people who know what they're doing! - Finally -- and perhaps most importantly -- Mitch *killed it* when he was DJ'ing during the reception. My biggest worry was that we would have one of those DJ's that just plays one song after another with no mixing or beat-matching. Mitch was as far from that as possible. He mixed almost every song together (with some really unique combinations that I still remember now) and just kept the party going. I think my Dad (who I didn't expect to dance at all, but did) said it best when we talked about it the next day -- "He just did not let up. One song after another." Mitch played awesome music and kept the party going for several hours. He made it a blast.

He worked with our photographer to make sure they were both aware of when the big moments would happen i.e. speeches, bouquet toss, etc. and kept us in the loop too so we knew what was going on and when.

We got married in October and we were paired with Mitch for our DJ.

I did a phone consult with Mitch to make sure... Read More he was a good match and I loved his easygoing personality and he answered all of my questions without even batting an eye. Fast forward to the big day. He did the music for our ceremony and as far as I could tell, everything was cued up perfectly and flowed very nicely. We also had him manage the tunes during cocktail hour and the bits we did hear created a good flow for the hour as people nibbled and drank. Then, on to the reception! Mitch did a great job of being present without being obtrusive. He handled a shifting timeline like a pro and was great at reading the dance floor to keep the party going! He even hosted our "Shoe game" that we did instead of the flower/garter toss and had questions that left the audience in stitches! It was perfect! I honestly was a bit nervous since the DJ can make or break the flow of a reception and Mitch did not disappoint!

DJ Will was our DJ for our wedding and reception and he was wonderful! About 80% of our guests were from out of state and most had never met before. We also had a pretty decent age gap between our family members and friends, so we were pretty worried about there being a lot of... Read More awkward gaps in time and not a lot of dancing. In fact, we'd been warning people that it might be an awkward reception. Holy moly were we wrong!!! Will was FANTASTIC at reading the crowd and knew just what music to play - he was a complete hit with everyone, and we had people up and moving all night! We also used Will's photo booth, which was also a great decision. We LOVE our photo strip guest book that we got at the end of the night. It's one of our favorite keepsakes! The icing on the cake is that Will is so incredibly easy to work with. From the email correspondence and meeting at the beginning, through the planning to the actual event - he's super responsive and very accommodating. His DJ planning area is a breeze to work in as well. Hire Will, you will not be disappointed. He truly is the best!!!

It all started in 2001 when I decided to start my own company, Dancing DJ Productions. In 2007 I decided to move to San Diego. I just couldn't resist the Southern California weather, which provided year round DJing opportunities. Over the past 16 years of DJing & MCing, I've performed at every type of event. While I primarily serve the San Diego area, I've DJ'd as far away as Chicago and England. My favorite part of DJing is bringing people joy! I just love seeing a packed dance floor and helping people have the time of their lives!
