With 20+ years of Wedding DJ service, we DJ with Pride, Passion and Integrity! Our past brides say it best... Tons of 5 star reviews, Couple's Choice award winner and always Wedding Wire rated. Dan's unique style comes from the old school. Reading the crowd and choosing the perfect song for that moment is what he does best! Someone once said "Dan somehow knew our favorite songs and played them all, best wedding ever!" Getting compliments from people of all ages, shows you are doing it right! Sure, the fun part of the night is picking out some dank dance tunes but Dan takes it to another level by running the perfect wedding day for you. Just like magic! A big smile and a nice guy attitude is one of Dan's best qualities. Plus he can slice like a ninja and cut like a razor blade, so fast...All the other DJ's say Damn! Like Kid Rock says... It ain't braggin if you can back it up.
