Best DJ Ever!!!

Hands down, the best part of our wedding was our DJ. He was professional, kept the evening moving, talked when he needed to but not excessivly and everyone absolutely loved him! No funny costumes - no bad jokes, just GREAT service and professionalism. At least 10 of my guests... Read More complimented us on our DJ and music. Ask for Dan Koch by name (pronounced "cook")!

Not much to say here. Amazing experience all around from Fifth Ace. Tim P was our DJ and did an unbelievable job! Was happy to take every one of our (questionable) requests. Very professional. Recommend Fifth Ace top to bottom.

Dan Koch and his team of Dj’s are well known around the Pittsburgh area. If you’ve been to a wedding chances are one of his guys were the Dj there.

DJ Dan was the absolute best! Between the dance floor and the photobooth, the party didn't want to end! 5th Ace Entertainment kept the party going up until the final seconds with a demanded "one more song!" The dance floor was packed the WHOLE night!

Look, we're not the kind of couple that gets excited about "The Electric Slide" or the chicken dance. When we contacted other potential DJs and told them we wanted to rock out, they sort of shrugged and told us they knew better than us. Dan, on the other hand, immediately smiled... Read More and said, hey, it's your wedding. He loved the challenge, I think, and we still got people dancing to bands like Violent Femmes and Marilyn Manson. Dan knew we aren't the kind of couple that compromises with cheesy traditions, and he gave us exactly what we wanted to make sure it was "our" wedding. Dan also built up a good rapport with the groom, getting hilariously sassy without making himself the center of attention. He was able to make the night perfectly about us and our tastes, while still getting our guests involved. When all was said and done, we were told that our wedding was just a lot of fun. We believe Dan was a major part of making that happen.

Dan is the man

Dan is so good at keeping the night going. He knows when to skip songs if people aren't dancing and what songs to play when. He's great with the crowd - young and old - and knows how to have fun, without being weird. I highly recommend 5th Ace and Dan as your wedding DJ! Not all...

There is nothing worse than having an empty dance floor at a wedding. I made this clear to Dan when I met with him to talk about my reception. There were people on the dance floor all night.

I'll always be thankful that I stumbled on the 5th Ace Entertainment website! From the beginning, Dan Koch was a breeze to work with! He answers phone calls and emails promptly and always conducts himself professionally. We loved the online account features on the website that... Read More allowed us to pay and to input songs on our "Must Play List" and "Do Not Play" List. We also added our first dance and other "dances" in that our account manager. During our sit-down meeting with Dan we explained to him how we wanted things to run and he really got a sense of the kind of couple we are. Dan really seemed to understand exactly what it was that my husband and I wanted in our wedding reception. He also worked hard to accommodate our venue; with dinner and dancing in two separate spaces, Dan brought two different set-ups so that we could enjoy dinner music, toasts, and intros, but also be ready for our big first dance and to start the party. We found his fee to be competitive and feel that he was worth every penny that we paid. Literally ALL of our friends and family had nothing but great things to say about him. Dan reads the crowd well and doesn't dwell on a song that isn't a hit--he quickly phases out and into an even better song. Our guests enjoyed themselves so much that when the reception ended, we had our venue staff and security ushering everyone out, and we credit this to Dan for keeping people dancing! I had so much fun that night, and seeing everyone else enjoying themselves made our wedding all the more spectacular. I'd recommend Dan to anyone and everyone--seriously!
