When Mike and I attended my cousins wedding in December of 2016, Dave was the DJ and from that night on we knew that when we decided to get married, we had to have Dave for our special day! Dave is extremely organized, meeting with us in person...
on multiple occasions before the wedding and also communicating with us via email which he was very promt with responses and easy to communicate with- making sure no stone was left unturned. People say that the DJ really sets the tone for the night and keeps things moving, this is SO TRUE and Dave definitely did a great job with this. We stayed on schedule to a "T" and there was no downtime where I felt like our guests were ever bored or left sitting and waiting. He definitely knows how to play for a crowd, keeping the dance floor packed all night! We have received so many compliments since our wedding about Dave and we have already been asked for his information several times. Dave is simply the best and he truly made our wedding stressfree, memorable and so so so much fun. Thank you, Dave! You did an incredible job through and through.

Dave was one of the best parts of our wedding! He is not just a DJ, but he keeps the party going, the entertainer. If you want your wedding to have a lot of fun, entertainment, and create a memorable evening for your guests, he is your guy. ...
My career is in music so I was extremely picky with what I was looking for in a DJ and he nailed it. I loved his selection and the variety of music he played throughout the evening, I received several complements from our guests as being the highlight of our wedding. He also provided two screens that displayed pictures and uplighting for our venue. I met with him twice before the wedding and he was great at listening to what I want and gave great suggestions.

We LOVE Odyssey Mobile Entertainment. Dave was our DJ on July 1, 2017, and he made our day so incredible! We first saw Dave at a friend's wedding reception, and immediately my husband and I (boyfriend at the time) knew that when we got married,...
we wanted Dave to be a part of it! From the initial meeting with Dave before we booked him, we knew he would be perfect. He is a true dedicated professional who really cares about running an event, not just about playing music. Ten days before the wedding, we met with Dave and went over all of the details of our big day. When we left that meeting, my husband and I were so confident that our reception would be run seamlessly. On our wedding day, Dave was amazing. Just before the bridal party introductions, he spoke to our bridal party and gave them a pump up speech and kicked off the celebration spectacularly. We booked the Diamond package, so he brought uplighting and video screens to the event. The lighting added a special ambiance and the video screens were a wonderful addition. A slideshow of pictures of my husband and I were played during cocktail hour, and he also played our engagement video during our first dance. He stays very on top of the schedule for the event, and ensures that all important people (family members, photographer/videographer) know when things are going to happen so that they don't miss important moments. We had a very big wedding, but even so, there were times when the dance floor would have a lull just because people were taking a break. Dave was excellent at playing selections to get everyone back out on the dance floor and having a great time. He really kept the party going for the entire evening! I am so thankful that Dave was a part of our day, and if I had any other big events, or family weddings, I would recommend Dave EVERY SINGLE TIME. He worked tirelessly throughout our event to make sure that my husband and I were happy, and that everything was running smoothly. As an added bonus, I have many young cousins in my family, and Dave kept them entertained throughout the night as well, even having the girls serve as the backup dancers on stage with him! I appreciate the hard work that Dave did for our wedding, and I am so thankful for his efforts!
If you are planning a wedding, book Odyssey Mobile Entertainment! Unlike many other companies, when you book Odyssey, you know that you for sure are getting Dave as your DJ. And book him early! His business runs on word of mouth and by people seeing him at weddings. He books up very quickly, so be sure to call him as early as possible.

nything but having fun and enjoying the moment.
We gave him some guidance during our planning session, but we didn’t want to give him a playlist, trusting our DJ to play what he thought our guests would want to hear next. It was the best decision yet, our family and friends were on the dance floor all night! And would have stayed longer if we could have!
If you are looking for a DJ in the Louisville area I would highly suggest Dave. He has years of experience in the wedding industry and knows how to run a party!!

Dave Drummond appeared to be a wonderful DJ when I first met with him (otherwise I would not have booked him), but my final meeting with him before my wedding showed that he is very intense and doesn't take well to you having an opinion regardi...
ng the way you want things done. If you have no direction or preference for the way you want the party portion of your big day to go, then I highly recommend him. However, I had a few suggestions (and I really do mean just a few) for cocktail hour music and the dance portion of the night, but, instead of executing them, he talked me out of them, and I really regret it because we ended up dancing to stuff that wasn't from this decade most of the night.
He was also INCREDIBLY rude to my photographer (whom I loved) and the owner of the venue I was married at; which are the only times I personally witnessed but doubt are the only times he was unprofessional. I was so embarrassed and his actions were completely unacceptable.
Lastly, when I showed him the layout of my venue, HE TOLD ME where he was setting up when I had already showed him where I wanted the DJ. I had to ask my aunt, who was also my wedding planner, to meet him when he showed up on the big day to make sure he didn't set up where he wanted because it would cause one of my guest tables to be blocked and pushed into the corner.
In Dave's defense, I will admit that my guests said he was great at getting them all up dancing and he was very interactive. Most people loved him.
I just felt like he was a diva that wanted things done a certain way and was not open to suggestions.

I had SO many guests come up to me that evening and the next day as we saw people departing from the hotel, and say that my daughter's wedding was the best wedding/reception they had ever attended! Guests could not quit raving about how great the DJ was. (2 weeks later guests were still talking about it!) I can't say enough about how pleased we were with Dave's services. Odyssey Mobile Entertainment was the best choice we could have made! You and your guests will have the best memories of your event by having Dave of Odyssey Mobile Entertainment as your music host!
