This is seriously the best DJ in town! Drea is so friendly, personal, professional, and fun. She kept the party going the whole night and made sure to play all the specific songs and artists that the groom and I were hoping to hear. We had so many compliments from guests on the music selection and organization from this vendor. I would highly, highly recommend!

We were lucky enough to have Drea emcee and provide music for our wedding. She was thorough, thoughtful, and made sure we were all on the same page for timelines, music expectations, and favorite songs. She helped us work out our timeline and was extremely flexible and stayed until the party was ready to wind down. Not only is she masterful at managing logistics and seamlessly guided us through the night, but she put down some pretty sick beats and was able to combine varied tastes from country to EDM into one party. Her transitions were spot-on and she really built the momentum of the party. Everyone had a fantastic time, and we got a tremendous amount of compliments on our DJ. We owe it all to Drea--we told her we wanted everyone to have a fantastic time and she made sure it was a night no one will forget.

I LOVE DHP! Drea was a dream to work with! My husband and I got married earlier this January. We were looking for not just any DJ but one who could also manage the flow of the ceremony and reception. Drea was amazing. She clearly had tons of experience and her timeline of the ceremony and reception flow was seamless. She listened to what we requested for music and we heard every song we requested! She was professional and responsive. DHP had lots of cool add on's as well. With her recommendation we added uplighting to our pkg and the result was gorgeous. I HIGHLY recommend Desert House Productions for any event! Drea you are a BOSS lady and we thank you so much for being our DJ :)

We had the privilege of having Anthony of Desert House Productions DJ our wedding on 12/3/16 at The Sanctuary Resort at Camelback. I cannot express how happy my now Wife and I were with his services, from the initial meeting through the wedding night. He was very professional, knowledgeable and actually cared about what we liked and didn't like to ensure our special night was truly special. One of the many traits Anthony, and Desert House Productions, that stood out was his enthusiasm in reaching out to us almost every month to keep him in the loop with the plans, as well as, him keeping us in the loop of where he was with our timeline and let us know if he needed anything and vice versa. Overall, GREAT JOB! I would definitely recommend using Anthony as a DJ for any event.

Thank you Anthony and Desert House Productions,

Nicole and Jon VanAsdlen

Simply stated: there is no one better in the Valley. The team at Desert House Productions present the upmost professionalism, talent and quality. Throughout every phase of planning, Dave was focused on "getting it right" for us (the bride and groom) and creating a vibe and ambiance fit our diverse group of guests. During our wedding reception, he managed our rowdy wedding party, provided flawless (and fun!) introductions and kept the party moving in a way that felt fluid and organic. Our guests are still texting us (days after the wedding) with rave reviews, many of them specifically referencing our "on-point DJ" and saying, "guys, that was literally the best wedding I have ever been to!" Dave and Drea are setting a new standard for wedding entertainment that is going to be very difficult to beat.

WOW! Where do I even begin with DHP?! From the moment we met with Dave and his wife Dre we knew that they were the perfect match for our wedding day. We originally wanted to hire a band, but after looking at our venue and realizing space may be an issue, we decided to look into DJ's in the valley. Our biggest concern with hiring a DJ was that we didn't want to hire someone that would play "cliche" music like the "cha-cha slide" or "YMCA." Let me tell you, DHP is not your average DJ. They want to ensure that your guests are having the best time possible and I can guarantee they will put on the ultimate PARTY. We gave Dave a list of our "must plays" and "please do not plays" which gave him an idea of the music we love. We had A BLAST during our reception, and I know our guests did too. Dave kept the dance floor packed the entire night. They are true professionals and just great people. Don't you want to be surrounded by great people on your wedding day? Dave also did all of the audio for our ceremony and music for the cocktail hour which was perfect! So glad we hired him for the full package. I did not have to worry about a thing! If you're worried about your family members making crazy requests to play "Dancing Queen", don't worry, Dave will tell them "Sorry, the Bride said no!" I can only hope to work with DHP again in the future!

I don’t even know where to begin to articulate how incredible Drea was to work with while planning our October 2016 wedding. When our search commenced, we looked at bands and DJs that could perform in the Scottsdale area. I initially really wanted a band but could not find anyone I loved. We consistently came across Desert House Productions who received hundreds of perfect reviews, so we decided to reach out. We got in touch with Drea and set up a Skype date, as we were planning our wedding from Virginia. Within five minutes of chatting with her via Skype, we knew immediately that we had to have Drea as our DJ. She was hip, down to earth and extremely knowledgeable about the music industry and how to throw the party of a lifetime. Going into our search we knew that music can really make or break a wedding, so we had to have the perfect DJ. After talking to Drea, we knew we found the one! The months leading up to the wedding, we spoke with Drea nonstop via email about what we envisioned. She made those dreams come to life and offered ideas that made the wedding that much better!
The day of the wedding – we were BLOWN away. Wow, talk about true talent! Drea absolutely killed it! Our wedding was a blast. Our reception began at 6 pm and we had guests on the dance floor going hard way past midnight. The guests could not get enough of Drea and the music! We also asked her to incorporate some Ukrainian songs into the evening, since there would be some Ukrainian guests in the crowd. I was a bit concerned how that would work out, but the way she blended everything, it all just flowed. We had guests from all age ranges and the music Drea played was just perfect. Our guests have not stopped raving about her. It has definitely been nice hearing our guests tell us that our wedding was the best party they have ever been to – I credit that completely to Drea. Drea was such an integral part in making our wedding perfect! If you want a party of a lifetime, you have to get Drea!

"Dave and Drea from Desert House Productions were so amazing in a somewhat last-minute booking (a Saturday wedding in October, in Arizona) with their team, and in connecting us with Anthony Hart! Anthony was AMAZING, to say the least, and it is nearly impossible to express how much we loved working with and how grateful we are to have had the pleasure of working with him. We, along with most of our friends, attended 4-8 weddings in 2016 and my (now) husband and I were the very last one, so we wanted to make it special not only for ourselves, but for our friends too. Anthony was an absolutely integral part of making our wedding truly perfect. The music for dinner was EXACTLY what we had in mind, and the music for dancing afterward was EXACTLY what we were thinking of. So many of our guests came up to me after the wedding and asked how we found our DJ because Anthony did such an amazing job at playing exactly our taste in music, blending in some music that all our guests would like, and being able to read the room and the mood so well and subsequently play songs that fit the energy and the mood perfectly. He is a true DJ and not a one-size-fits-all-chicken-dance-electric-slide wedding DJ, which was super important to us! I honestly can't recommend Anthony Hart and Desert House Productions enough for your AZ wedding."

Top notch in every way! We couldn't have been more pleased!! Drea goes above and beyond to make sure the party has energy and varied musical interests are represented. They did an outstanding job keeping things moving along, organizing the various speeches and toasts, providing necessary housekeeping announcements for the guests, etc. This is not your ordinary DJ gig - these guys are real pro's and created the ideal environment for our special event. If you don't want to have to worry about a thing, Desert House Productions is a no-brainer!

Our wedding was April 9th, 2015 at the Montelucia Hotel in Scottsdale. Everyone was RAVING over the music. You killed it and we couldn't be happier. You did such a wonderful job, and the wedding wouldn't have been quite the same without the perfect tunes. We are DEFINITELY keeping you in mind for referrals to friends in AZ and even LA. Thank you for everything, it was a pleasure working with you.
