I don't even know where to begin to describe how wonderful Santa Cruz Live Music and DJ was. Nick Handley was the perfect balance between professional and fun. I don't think the dance floor was ever empty! He listened to all my requests, was re...
sponsive to emails, and was very helpful during the entire wedding planning process. Even a month later our guests are still telling me how great the DJ was! If you're looking for an awesome DJ and a great price I would highly suggest Santa Cruz Live Music and DJ!

I cannot recommend Nick more! Not only did he provide amazing music - reading our very diverse crowd - he was also super easy to work with. Nick went above and beyond to make our day special. We had an outdoor venue at a private residence and h...
e hiked up a hill not once, but twice, to let us know how things were looking down below. He checked in regarding our timing, names, etc. and is just genuinely a wonderful person! We got tons of compliments on our music, and we cannot thank him enough!

I love Nick!! He was so helpful and easy going. All the music he played at my wedding was perfect. He was good about playing only music that we liked. If he noticed we didn't like it he would quickly change the song. I also used him for th...
e live music for the ceremony. It was beautiful. He played the guitar and I wouldn't have had it any other way. I would definitely use him again!

We had Adam DJ our wedding on 8/18/12. He was great as were Nick and Daniel. My bridesmaids wanted to go with someone else, but when they met Adam he won them over with Time After Time, they broke out in song in the middle of the bridal show. ...
Photobooth: At the time, they were experimenting with the photobooth and we signed up for that package. Nick was very easy to work with, taking some things out of the package and exchanging them for other services we wanted and helped us stay within our budget. Since we had an ocean backdrop I wanted to drop the curtains and capture the scenic view. They tried it to make sure the lighting was ok and it was. Everyone loved the photobooth and the props they brought were hilarious.
Video: A few months before the wedding we wanted to add video and told Adam and Nick. They had Daniel available and we worked out a deal for him to video while he wasn't manning the photobooth. Nick took a few pictures and put a highlight video together for us.
Overall would recommend, loved these guys!!!

My wedding coordinator from the venue that I got married at reccommended Nick Handley, owner of Santa Cruz Live Music and DJ. I called him and made an appt. My husband and I went to go meet with him and our first meeting was just Nick getting t...
o know us and vice versa. It was really nice. After we left the meeting we knew that we wanted Nick to be our DJ. Nick helped me the entire way through the music process. He told me what I really needed to choose, for example the first dance, the father daughter dance, etc. So I picked about 10 songs for the highlights of the wedding and he did the rest which really put me at ease. He also played Live music for the dinner portion of the wedding. My dad, who is a music snob, still hasn't stopped talking about how impressed he was of Nick, the recorded music that he played and really the live music that he played. He made the wedding reception amazing!

We recently hired Nick Handley as our wedding musician and DJ. He was great! He played acoustical guitar for our ceremony and cocktail hour and then became a DJ for dinner and dancing. He played all of our requested music and was just a fun guy...
to have at our wedding.
One thing that I want to call out was how great he was via email. We were planning this wedding remotely and couldn't always meet in person or via phone. He sent us everything we needed via email and always responded to questions in hours...very quick! Huge help for us.
Highly recommend Nick for any event or wedding!

We wanted a musician to play acoustic during cocktail hour but DJ during the ceremony and reception, and we never thought we'd find both in one! Adam is a great musician and DJ and we were so happy to have him be part of our day.

I can't say enough about how glad I am that we used Nick Handley for our wedding! He provided both live music and DJ services for our cocktail hour/reception. So many of our guests told me how great they thought he was and we loved his style. T...
he reception went perfectly and he picked recorded music that was perfectly appropriate for every part of the night, from dinner background music to dance-party music to end the night. I've used Nick for other events and will continue to do so because I've always been impressed!
