Oh my gosh..I don't even know where to start!! My Persian husband and my American self were in a unique situation when looking for music for our wedding. Expecting a 50:50 crowd, we decided to go in a different direction than the typical Jewish Persian wedding and hire an American band and a Persian DJ. When we told our coordinator about the decision, she told us there is only ONE Persian DJ we should work with in all of LA, and that was DJ Omead at Dashing Events!

Let me start by saying we have been to a lot of Persian weddings and seen a lot of Persian DJs. However, we have never seen a DJ that has read and amped a crowd quite like Omead. He is SIMPLY amazing...hands down THE BEST!!! We did a 'typical' Persian ceremony where we danced down the aisle and Omead NAILED the timing for all of our couples on their songs. People are still raving!!! He spent HOURS with us choosing our music and helped us make every decision along the way. During our reception, he did an AMAZING job complimenting and contrasting the band's sets, and EVERY transition was seamless. During one of the Persian dance sets he even mixed some of the Farsi songs with English songs - I have never heard anything like it!! It was INSANE!! Our guests were all going crazy!

Aside from keeping our dance floor packed until the minute our last song played, Omead did an absolutely outstanding job on the lighting for our wedding! We got married outside after sunset and he lit up the ceremony site so miraculously. It truly felt like a dream. All of the lighting/draping he provided for the reception exceeded all of our expectations! He made every vision come to life!! Also, our florist kept saying how impressed they were that his standard centerpice lighting was double pin spots!

Omead was an absolute asset to making our day a true success! Our guests are still raving about how aboslutely gorgeous out wedding was!! We cannot wait to work with Omead again somtime soon!! THANKS OMEAD FOR EVERYTHING!!!

Everything was setup hours before my event. My show was so flawless that to date everyone talks about how great everything looked. Omead looked so much into all the details that my photos and videos look so awesome because he choosed colors that worked well with them. If I could've give him more stars I would've. Thank you Omead for making my wedding so awesome and taking charge to run all my visuals and lighting.

We used Dashing Events for uplighting, photobooth, and deejay services for our wedding in August.
The uplighting and photobooth services were good and we would recommend those services. But both we and the venue were surprised and disappointed by the deejay. Our interaction with Dashing Events up until the wedding was great. Dashing Events is a well-organized and professional events company and they have a website where you can write in details about what songs you want and what you want the deejay to say throughout the night. My husband and I are also organized people and we were very detailed and thorough on the website, especially because we were having a multicultural wedding so there were different cultures and traditions to consider. However, DJ Omead (DJO) forgot a lot of REALLY important parts that were explicitly written and we had talked about on the phone just a few days before the wedding. Just two small examples are that he messed up the names during the grand entrance and forgot to play an important song that had a choreographed dance to it for the groom's family. When we asked him about these things, he was unapologetic and his response was "I'm doing the best I can" which is sad if your best is to forget a bunch of very explicit details. To look at this broadly, DJO plays good music and can keep the crowd dancing, which is great, but you know a vendor cares about their clients when they actually spend time to read what you have written and pay attention to the details that you work so hard to put together to make your wedding special. A DJ is not just playing music at your wedding, but making announcements and MC-ing, so they need to prepare beforehand (especially when you have a multicultural wedding) and we definitely didn't get the feeling that DJO spent a second preparing for our wedding, and for that reason we wouldn't recommend him.

I am very very impressed with DJ Maha who is an international DJ and the Photobooth! We had so much fun and it is all for the professionalism of Dashing Events. I am so happy we chose them. They made our wedding very special and memorable. The Photobooth was very modern and we got to choose the background and photo template and text.
DJ Maha was the reason I never left the dance floor! I highly recommend them!

I spent a bit of time searching for the right DJ for our August 2015 Persian/American wedding, and I was thrilled to find Dashing Events! Considering that half of our guests had never before attended a Persian wedding, it was really important to me that our DJ that not just throw in the occasional American song, but really engage all guests. Dashing Events came through (and, indeed, completely exceeded my expectations). MC Tehran kept everyone thoroughly entertained (his Persian dance tutorial for our American guests was a riot), and DJ Maha kept the music fun and engaging. They were both true professionals, as were DJ Omead and Shannon (who handled the admin side of our contract). The team at Dashing Events understood what we were looking for, and they really delivered. I couldn't have asked for anything more. THANK YOU, DASHING EVENTS!

Omead is absolutely the best and most epic DJ ever. He was easily the easiest part of our wedding set-up process. I told him to play some awesome hip hop dance music mixed in with Arabic music to keep people on the floor. He kept a full dance floor until we all got kicked out by the venue ... and our wedding was on a Sunday. People loved it so much they stuck around and decided to just skip work the next day!!

The percussionist was money! He played the tabla along with all the music and gave it a nice beat that kept everyone going. Photobooth was a HIT and now we have 1000s more hilarious pictures of all of our friends and family.

I would hire him again in a heartbeat, no questions asked!!

To sum up in Omead's own words: "we're not certified electricians nor claim to be".
I wish I had known this before- I would never have booked them and their "lighting technicians" as a lighting vendor for our wedding.

They may have great reviews as a DJ and Entertainment vendor, but our experience with them was very different.

The fuses blew throughout the evening leaving our guests in the dark.
Omead blamed this on inadequate power, although there was no concern voiced about the power during the walk through or install/test the night before.

Their prices are competitive, but it was not worth it for us.

Aside from the many lighting issues, we also had issue with the pipe and drape rented from Dashing Events.

We were working with the city for our permit, but Dashing apparently did not know that the drapes needed to be flame retardant and have proof of certification.

This not only held up our permit process, but then Dashing tried to charge more money for flame retardant drapes- which is what they should have had in the first place.

I cannot recommend Dashing Events or Omead for lighting services and continue to regret using them.

Dashing Events responded with the following comments:

We're sorry to hear that you had a bad experience, however we explicitly requested a dedicated 20 amp circuit during our walk-through and also have it specified on the contract. Our string lighting used less than 12 amps for your event and worked fine the night before when we completed setup. As such, we cannot be responsible for other power draws in the circuit that would have caused a power outage (such as power used in the house, outside the house by other vendors, etc). Of course, our lights will go out if the power goes out and we cannot control that. And yes, our lighting technicians are are a dedicated to setup and breakdown of our equipment and being certified electricians is beyond the scope or normal duties. For electrician services, we recommend hiring an electrician.

Regarding the permits, we find it unreasonable to request and require certification one (1) day before event setup. This request should have been made prior to booking, or at least a week in advance. Inevitably, we have to charge for last minute accommodations to pickup new fabric and drive to the fire department on the day of setup to get the certification in order to help make the event a success. Despite our request for the modest up-charge, which you agreed to but never paid, we found that your rental company would have charged 30% more than our fee.

Of course we want all our clients to be happy but there is only so much we can do.

My husband Kevin and I got married on April 18, 2015 we booked Dashing Events because we aware of their superb reputation and me being Egyptian wanted to make sure we could have a Dj and a vendor with experience in middle eastern weddings. My husband is Irish and we both knew we wanted a good mix of Arabic and English and DJ MAZ delivered. We had been to various weddings and saw Dashing events DJ O, sax player and photo booth! As we never seen DJ MAZ at a wedding prior but we were so thrilled with his skill and ability to play and randomize the music in a way that kept everyone dancing the night away! We're a young couple (25 years old) & having MC George was the cream on top! I highly recommend the MC/DJ duo it was perfect. Shout out to MC George you were so personable and knew some of family members name by heart which was awesome! He joined us on the Dance floor and all our guests loved him! Our east coast friends still talk about our big day we will be recommending Dashing events.Very professional and know how to make any event a true success
