The Wedding Expert DJ


Congratulation on your upcoming wedding!

I'm confident that you're going to be
happy you’ve found me. You'll find that I’m unique among DJs that perform wedding receptions, because for over 20 years of my life I've spent DJing wedding receptions, so my experience and skill level with wedding receptions is as high as it gets. This makes my style uniquely "wedding perfect", such as my style of announcing, my style of coordinating, the music I play, and the physical presentation aspect. Also unique is that I implement extreme dependability and punctuality measures, which are very important when it comes to wedding receptions.

I will move your reception forward by first making sure you two are ready and that everything is in place prior to each step, and then guide your guests by using my tasteful style of announcing. I’m going to completely customize and stylize your music to your individual taste and selections.

My Experience

Throughout the years I’ve disc jockeyed thousands of weddings with about a third being at venues such as the Hotel Bel Air, the Chateau Marmot, the Millennium Biltmore Hotel , the Ritz Carlton, the Montage Laguna Beach, the Hotel Del Coronado, the La Jolla Torrey Pines Golf, the Trump International Golf Resort, the Queen Mary, the Montecito Inn, and the Beverly Hills Peninsula Hotel, which for years exclusively used me as the only DJ they would recommend for wedding receptions. The other two thirds of my receptions were at your normal person's backyard and small local venues. I’ve also have had the pleasure of working with a number of well known actors and music artists for their weddings or their family's weddings. My experience with weddings is more vast and extreme than any DJ that I’m aware of.
