Hands down, Daniel and his company, DLE Event Group, made our wedding the best dance party we could have ever imagined. Not only did he play all the right songs, but his charisma on the mic and ability to read the crowd, was of the highest caliber. It’s not easy to plan a... Read More wedding from across the country, because it usually means your only means of communication are emails and the occasional FaceTime. DLE Event group is one of the most organized companies we had the pleasure of working with. They use Basecamp which is a project management website that made communication of song ideas, and general feel of the day, absolutely seamless. We told Daniel what we were looking for on our big day, and he took our ideas and knocked it out of the park. It truly felt like we had an opportunity to collaborate with an artist, rather than just hire a DJ/MC. We are still getting compliments about how phenomenal of a DJ/MC Daniel was. Him and his crew were incredibly professional and sweet the day of. He has such a positive and uplifting attitude, that you cannot help but have the best time when you’re around him. He truly has a talent for reading a crowd, and making split decisions on what needs to be played next. His ability to guide the flow of the entire reception was seamless and seemingly effortless. He takes the time to do the work, get to know you as a couple, really listen to what you are looking for in your party, and then make it happen. We couldn’t recommend DLE Event Group more for your DJ & MC services. Anyone who says you need a band over a DJ clearly hasn’t met this group. Thank you Daniel for making our reception the killer dance party we always wanted!

If it were possible to give DLE more stars, it would be far beyond just 5. I got married last December at the Larkfield Manor and had DLE as my DJ. He was the first DJ my husband Thomas and I met with and within 10 minutes, Thomas and I looked at each other and said, this is... Read More our guy. We never bothered to contact anyone else because Daniel's professionalism, attention to detail and overall concern for the couple within making them a priority was apparent. He honestly made the whole night magical! And until this day, I still get compliments on the energy he put into the crowd and I've never seen the dance floor as packed as it was throughout the whole night in any other wedding that I've gone to. We booked with DLE almost two years in advance and within that time, he kept in contact with us, even all the way up to the night before the wedding. If you're looking for a DJ and want someone who is willing to give you 100% of his efforts, honesty and serves as an expert within the industry, go with DLE. I promise you, you won't receive anything less than spectacular. Due to Daniel's efforts, our reception was absolutely astonishing and because of that, he has given Thomas and I enough memories to last a lifetime.

Danny was a top notch DJ at our wedding! He and DLE really went above and beyond for us and our needs. From perfectly tailoring our music to our specific needs beforehand and then making sure everything ran seamlessly on his end the day of the wedding. Danny is also a vibrant MC... Read More who really knows how to get a crowd up on its feet and keep the party going till the very end. It's difficult to find a DJ that won't "Get in the way" of your event. Some try to make it all about themselves with constant self promotion on the mic or with a big obtrusive banner hanging overhead - DLE resorts to NONE of these cheap tactics while working your event; Because they don't need to. They are going to get business no matter what thru excellent reviews and great word of mouth - the way a great business should. They also know that your day is about YOU and they are there to accentuate it with a great atmosphere and a killer soundtrack. And DLE definitely succeeded at both!! I would definitely recommend DLE for your wedding, birthday, or even corporate event. And if his schedule permits it, try and get Danny to MC - He's awesome!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Daniel and DLE Event Group. We booked him really early on because we wanted to make sure we had the best of the best locked in and we were not disappointed! Daniel was very easy going and friendly and gave great advice. We met almost 1.5... Read More years before the wedding at the venue where he was able to get a feel for the amount of equipment he would need for the big day (our venue is huge!). He really listens to what you want and went through every detail with expert knowledge and thoughtfulness. Basecamp is super easy to use to plan out all of the logistics and song choices. The dancing on clouds was incredible and highly recommended! The lighting was out of this world and made the place look AMAZING! They even made a special monogram for us and displayed it on the TV screens and our flower wall. Such an epic touch! The spotlight and lighting guys were great. The photo montage video was very touching and well done. Daniel's singing was such a nice touch for the evening and our guests raved about him. Only cons were that sometimes Daniel can be hard to reach (and let's be real, you're already a stressed out bride!) and he was supposed to order some glow sticks and foam sticks that we had planned for but they weren't there that night, and of course, it's very expensive but it's worth every penny as it truly made the entire night magical, fun, and memorable. Thanks to the whole crew!

Daniel & his team were perfection! We couldn't be happier and so were our guest! Our friends and family were very impressed by MC (Daniel) and the DJ (Chase). They kept the momentum alive everyone was dancing on the floor! Daniel gave us great advice on how to run a wedding... Read More smoothly and seamlessly during the big day/ timeline. Every meeting we had with him was very personal, attentive, and professional. He is very talented person overall, great singer and very charming presence.

It added even more magic and romance to our first dance! We highly recommend DLE Event Group!

We couldn't have been happier with the choice of DLE Event Group as the DJ/MC at our wedding. Daniel did a great job in getting to know our music preferences ahead of the big day and the team (including DJ Jase) perfectly captured the moods we wanted throughout the night: from... Read More the romantic first dance, to the sentimental father/daughter and mother/son dances, to the party atmosphere at the end. They played all our requests and even checked in to make sure we were pleased with how things were going. As an MC, Daniel kept the event running smoothly without interrupting the natural flow or getting in the way which was exactly what we were looking for. The slideshow was a big hit with the guests and we had multiple people tell us that they loved the music - as if the packed dance floor wasn't evidence enough. Two thumbs up / highly recommended!

I felt very comfortable in working with him on the music selections and felt he had a good handle on what we wanted to hear, but when it was the actual night of the event he crushed it!

Our wedding was so phenomenal thanks in a major part to Daniel and DLE Event Group. We had over 200 people at our wedding and everyone was on the dance floor the entire night.
