Absolutely FANTASTIC DJ

I cannot say enough good things about our experience working with Dre. During the planning process he was incredibly accessible and helpful. He provides an online form to his clients to be used to specify all of the wedding details that he needs to know. At the wedding, he was... Read More engaging and entertaining. He taught our guests the Wobble so that everyone could participate -- including my husband's 80-year-old grandmother! Everyone has been asking for his contact information and, as another reviewer said, have said that he was the best DJ they have ever seen. Thank you for everything, Dre! We love you! - Matt and Cara

Best DJ ever

When I told friends and family we were hiring a DJ rather than a band, many eyes rolled. We've all been to weddings where the cheesy DJ ruins the atmosphere or ignores the requests of the bride and groom. To be fair, I completely understood everyone's hesitations. However, DJ... Read More Dre is amazing. He was constantly providing a fun atmosphere, handling requests from our friends and family, and kept the music and party going while maintaining our style. I had the best time at my wedding and contribute a large part of it to him. Our vendors asked for his information so they could refer him to clients, and we received many compliments from our friends and family on our DJ choice. I really cannot recommend him enough. We loved DJ Dre!

One of the few things on my list, as the groom, for our wedding day was the DJ/playlist. DJ Dre came highly recommended from a friend, having had Dre at their wedding a few years back. My (now) wife & I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN HAPPIER! From start to finish, Dre was professional,... Read More courteous, approachable, friendly, engaging, honest & proud of what he does. This showed when we first met & discussed the in's & out's of planning & he quickly accepted the fact that I was going to be quite specific about the music I wanted! Leading up to our big day, Dre stayed in close communication & visited us at the hotel to walk the space one final time 5 days before the wedding. I sent a very long email to Dre, detailing the specifics we wanted for the ceremony, cocktail hour & reception...when I tell you that he nailed EVERY point on that email, I mean it. His execution of every moment from start to finish made our day perfect. His equipment is top notch & sounded awesome, his uplighting (& additional uplighting that we added last minute) transformed our reception & best of all, Dre being Dre will be something we never forget. His personality with our family & friends, interacting with us throughout the night & even hanging with us after the wedding ended, made him so special. I cannot recommend Dre enough...I will gladly recommend him to ANYONE getting married in the future...A++++++++ to infinity. BRAVO DRE! :)

Our dance floor was bumpin' all night, and he and his assistant never stopped dancing while they worked which was so fun. People kept coming up to us saying "I love your DJ!" He truly went above and beyond to make sure we had the best wedding reception ever! Andre, Steven and I can't thank you enough for everything you did! You rock.
