"There is a reason why Dan was voted the DJ of the year......he is amazing! He was the DJ at our wedding on 08/23/08. We could not have been more thrilled with the job he did. He was so professional, fun, easy going, and not at all cheesy. The evening’s events moved along so smoothly; we were able to have the time of our lives and danced all night. Our guests loved him too! We would recommend Dan to anyone and everyone, from our closest friends and family members to a stranger on the street.
Thanks Dan!"

"It’s been a year and a half since my husband and I married and every time I hear our first dance song I think how happy I was to have hired Dan Dubay for our DJ. He hosted the party with professionalism,decorum and decernment. He created the perfect atmosphere for the over fourty crowd as well as for our highschool age children and friends. Everybody was dancin’ and havin’ a good time. We still get complements after all these months."

"Dan exceeded our expectations of what a DJ should be. He was very accommodating at setting up meetings before the wedding. He drove way out of his way two weeks before the wedding to come take a look at the venue so he had a better idea of what would work best for us. It was the little things he did that impressed us so much. Our best man found out a week before that he would not be able to make it. So <> . It made everyone cry, even the photographer! Dan is very professional but very personal as well, when you talk to him it feels as if you have known him forever. We got many many comments on how great our DJ was. We were very pleased and would recommend him anytime for any event!" Read less

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Every client is uniquely different. Together we can create a celebration that fits your personality. One that is romantic, fun and professionally produced so your guests will feel very much a part of your celebration!
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
There is only a limit as to how many hours of music we can play. Through our consultation that I've perfected over the years, we can discuss your taste in music and what you expect.
What is your usual attire?
Tuxedo, business suit, casual - it's up to you! Or if you're hosting a theme event, such as a sock hop, a letterman's jacket and jeans may be more appropriate - in which case, if you prefer, I'll dress the part too!
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Even with the music library being constantly updated - you may want some special songs to make your event more unique. Within limits, I'll research and make music purchases to fill your requests. Also, to personalize your event, selections from your music collection can be mixed in with the thousands listed in the Music Library.
How many other DJs do you work with?
This is a great question because there are DJ services who don't know the answer to it until the week of your event. You deserve to know exactly who will attend to the details of your celebration. I perform each event personally - guaranteed.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
I offer unlimited hours so each client knows they have music as long as they need it. The shortest event I performed at was pre-determined at 2 hours and the longest was 17 hours.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes, in fact it's encouraged! Consultations are included at no extra cost. Meeting in person gives us the opportunity to exchange ideas and plan ahead so your event will be everything you've imagined! Clients who were too busy and could only plan through phone calls and email have been perfectly satisfied with our attention to detail and the end result of their events as well!
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
I can't say I specialize in them, but being very intuitive and through pre-planning, we've created some pretty amazing themed events!
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely! Knowing what you don't want is just as important as knowing what you do want!
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, I use Mackie equipment I prefer to invest in better speakers and provide you with better sound at any volume.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
When it comes to lighting and effects, the choices are endless. Every event is different and Dan will provide what it takes to fit your theme -- from the subtle to the extravagant. Many of my clients want a classy but fun look. However, at our disposal are chasers, black lights, fog and hazer machines, strobes, mirrorballs and just about any professional DJ lighting or effect.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
I prefer to be set up and ready to go long before your guests arrive. I also provide my own table if needed.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Never. In fact, there's are several other things I don't do to promote my business at your event that you may find other DJs will do.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
As needed, yes. We will discuss your needs in detail before the event in our one month out meeting.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Over the years I've developed several ways to motivate the crowd without doing any cheesy bits or games. Crowd motivators I've learned over the years, seminars I've attended in Las Vegas and notes I've compiled over the years are all tools I use to match the needs of my clients. Knowing your audience and client is the first step in making sure everyone is happy. Also, there is another revealing detail we can discuss about the FULL DANCE FLOOR myth.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
There aren't many jobs where you are allowed to eat or drink alcohol while working and I prefer not to do either. Also, the music is always present without any scheduled breaks.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Again, no breaks are needed.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Through many years of networking with other DJs and formerly being a member of the ADJA, I have several competent pros to rely on. That being said, I have NEVER missed an event.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Never. My time is dedicated to one client at at time.
What is your overtime rate?
Again, each client receives unlimited hours of music so there is no overtime rate.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Yes, travel expenses are factored in based on each individual client's needs.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
The retainer is usually about 1/3 of the entire investment.

Dan was awesome from start to finish. When we set out to plan our wedding, we wanted a wedding extremely personal and authentic to us. Every decision we made kept this in mind, including selecting Dan to be our DJ. He is extremely detailed oriented and we felt so confident in him from day 1. We met with him a few times before the wedding to make sure every detail was in place. He was accommodating, flexible, and helped us shape the reception into exactly what we wanted it to be. Compliments from our family and friends keep rolling in about his professionalism and how fun the reception was. He knew exactly what songs to play right at the right moments to get and keep people on the dance floor. We would highly recommend Dan to anyone considering getting married in Bend!

We absolutely could not have imagined a better DJ for our wedding!!! Many guests said that our wedding was the best they had been to, and Dan had so much to do with that. He got all of my aunts, uncles, grandparents, family friends etc. up on the dance floor, and we had an amazing time! He was so professional and kept things moving, but really kept the attention on the party and the event. He tactfully turned down requests for music that wasn't in line with our vision, and everyone loved him! Absolutely worth every penny. We consider ourselves so lucky that we got to have him at our wedding!

Dan Dubay is a great DJ and person. From start to finish he is the definition of a class act, professional, and we knew once we met Dan the music and reception events were in the right hands. Every request we had he was able to deliver without any hiccup. If a well organized, seemless event is what you are looking for, Dan is the man for the job. No aspect of what he would be doing for us was over-looked. It was a great relief knowing he was running the show for us and we did not have to stress out over the details during the reception. He is not "that guy" who will steal the show, drink your booze and try to take home a bridesmaid. Our deepest thanks and appreciation to Mr. Dubay for being a huge part of our big day.

Dan Dubay was everything we had hoped for and MORE!! Dan came to our home for our first meeting and really listened to us! He asked lots of questions and really demonstrated the importance of the DJ's roll in order to keep the flow of events on track! I hadn't thought about that... and let me tell you... it is critical!! Dan follows up about a week before your event to touch base and be sure that everyone is on the same page! If you have special requests for music he can help with that too! He was thorough, on time, dressed to impress, and so professional! He took requests, smiled all night and it was truly a blessing to have him for such an important night!! We had so much fun it was silly! I would recommend Dan 1,000% no matter what your event is! You can trust he will give you the best experience possible!! Thank you Dan, so happy we had you!!!!

I had no idea who to use for our DJ for our wedding in Bend. After pricing out a couple of DJs, Dan was not only more reasonable in price, but so much more responsive and great to work with throughout the whole planning process and the day of the event! Even though we never met in person before the big day he kept in contact with us and his website made it super easy to make our own playlist.

The day of the wedding went off without a hitch and a lot of that had to do with Dan! The DJ leads the night by feeling out the crowd and he definitely did that all night long by taking music requests and going with the flow which is exactly what I wanted! :)

Thanks, Dan! Anyone looking for a DJ, I highly recommend Dan Dubay!

Dan was the very best DJ we have ever met. He made a point of understanding, and then delivering, exactly what we wanted. His music choice was phenomenal, all our friends and family at the wedding commented on him being so good and many of them said they had never heard all their favourite songs played in one party, he just seemed to go on and on picking out the most fabulous appropriate music. He really made the day for us.

You can search Oregon and through and you will never, and I mean never, find a more professional high class DJ. Dan was recently the DJ for our wedding and he did a fantastic c job! He was spot-on professional from the very first meeting with us all the way until the very last song was played at our wedding. He is extremely friendly, very easy to work with, super knowledgeable and experienced, and unbelievably good at his job. He helped us pick music that was a perfect fit for my wife and I and the wedding in general. His music choices, suggestions, and delivery were perfect from the time when guests started arriving, through the ceremony/reception, and of course throughout the dancing. If I could give couples about to married a suggestion, it would be to choose a great DJ. They set the tone and mood of your wedding, they get others involved, and they are the ones that keep things on time and running smoothly. And that is exactly what Dan did for us. The best way to describe him at the wedding would have been “invisible perfection”. He didn’t stand out, he didn’t steal the spot light …. he just made sure that everything, and I mean everything, was perfect. He helped us write nice notes that he read to our parents during our slow dances, he learned about our guests and made special comments about them throughout or event, he worked with the maid of honor on a special slide-show, and he coordinated everything he needed to with the event planner. In short, he provided everything he said he would … and that was perfect service on one of the most important days of our life. Thanks Dan!
