The perfect wedding reception is about attention to detail and seamless execution. That is what I deliver. With over 15 years of experience, I have deejayed over 200 weddings, as well as birthdays, anniversaries, corporate events, clubs and lounges. I strive to make each event unique, tasteful and fun!

My music selection is vast and diverse. I can play top 40, disco, motown, hip-hop, salsa, merengue, reggae, reggaeton, middle eastern, hindi, brazilian, african, french, etc. I specialize in international and multi-ethnic weddings, and I'll make sure that both sides of the aisle have a great time. Great music needs to be played on great equipment and I supply a state-of-the-art sound system to deliver clear and beautiful music and 2 wireless microphones for introductions, toasts and announcements. I am bi-lingual and can MC all the introductions and announcements in Spanish and English. I will supply you with a Wedding Format Sheet to list the members of the Bridal Party, the first dance and any other pertinent information, and a list of music to facilitate your selection. I can also provide an extra sound system and lavalier (lapel) mic, if needed for the ceremony, a projector and screen, so you can share special moments with family and friends, elegant uplighting to enhance the look of your venue, and monogram lighting to personalize your special day.

Your wedding is one of the most important events of your life. Don't take a chance on an inexperienced DJ with mediocre equipment and limited knowledge of music! Someone always comes up to me after every event to thank me for the wonderful time they had, and to tell me how bad the DJ was at the last event they attended. Don't be that event! My rates are very reasonable for a DJ with my experience. Give yourself some peace of mind and call me, DJ Dario, at 240-899-3549, if you have any questions, or to book your date.

Dario is an exceptional DJ! From the moment that I called him a year before the wedding, until he loaded his last piece of equipment at the end of the evening, he was nothing but professional! He consulted with my daughter, myself and my husband in regard to every detail of the wedding and reception so that it would be perfect! It was! I chose to contact Dario, because I had worked with him at a wedding a year prior and was impressed with how professional and personable he was. I have two other daughters that will be married one day, and Dario will be the first person that I will call! I highly recommend him for ANY event! You will not be disappointed!

We hired DJ Dario for our wedding and couldn't have been happier with how things went. He was really easy to work with and really interested in making the event and music what we wanted it to be, rather than set songs chosen from a standard list. He worked with sample music we provided from our own iTunes libraries to put together a larger collection of music that would have the vibe we wanted and it turned out great. Everyone had a blast - he even took a little cellphone video for us of the group doing the Hora. Would hire him and recommend him again without a second thought. On top of that, he was super responsive to emails, which is such a big plus.

DJ Dario was phenomenal from the moment I contacted him until the last (extra) songs he played at our reception. First, I was impressed by his responsiveness. My initial e-mail to him was sent when he was DJing a destination wedding in the Carribean...and he still responded to my query almost immediately. His rates were surprisingly reasonable (especially for the quality!!!!). He continued to be easy to reach and quick to respond to any request. We had a slightly unusual situation as most of my wife's guests were Middle Eastern and we wanted to have a mix of their traditional music mixed in with more run-of-the-mill dance music. DJ Dario was more than accommodating, using both music that we provided and music that he found on his own. Most of our communication was over e-mail, but we met him in person about a week before the wedding, when our general stress levels were through the roof with all of the preparations. His easy-going, professional demeanor calmed us both down and gave us the confidence that even if everything else went wrong, our DJ would be perfect. We gave him a small list of song suggestions and otherwise trusted him to read the room and keep the party alive. On the day of the wedding, he brought uplights with our wedding colors at no charge in addition to his other awesome dance floor lighting and they looked amazing. As to the music selection, we have not stopped raving about it since the reception ending. He literally had the entire room on the dance floor from the moment dinner ended until multiple encore songs had finished playing. His ability to read the room and know the exact right set of songs to play next, whether they were the more traditional ethnic songs or contemporary pop hits, was like an art form. I have never had as much fun at a wedding as I did at mine and DJ Dario was a huge part of that. I could not recommend his services more highly and suggest that you book him soon before the rest of the DC area discovers how awesome he is!

Rafael and I celebrated our wedding on Sep. 6th, 2014 at Keswick Hall near Charlottesville, VA

We were impressed from the first encounter with DJ Dario and his high energy to make our wedding day the best ever. He was easy to work with, very professional and listened to our every music need. He also suggested other ideas for making the dance party even better, such as adding a monogram "gobo" of our names on the dance floor and bringing special lights.

We could not have had a better DJ to keep our dance party going until the wee hours of the night and our guests highly entertained... With a Brazilian groom and American/Chilean bride, we truly needed an all-encompassing experience that could entertain a diverse crowd and be special for different age groups. DJ Dario delivered that and more. With a diverse repertoire of upbeat songs, our local and international guests were amazed and couldn't stop moving to the beats... the best judge of a successful night is that nobody ever left the dance floor.

You are the BEST DJ Dario!! Thanks for making it a night to remember!

DJ Dario was AMAZING! I would recommend him to anyone. He was friendly, professional and incredibly helpful. He allowed us to see him at work before we decided to accept his services. We could tell he was more than a DJ, he was the Master of Ceremony showing his many years of experience in the entertaining business (in our case a wedding). The planing phase was smooth and DJ Dario was easily accessible. On the wedding day he was ready on time and performed superbly! My family is Colombian and my wife's is both American and Mexican so pleasing everyone in the crowd was difficult but DJ Dario did just that. The reception was an incredible success (an amazing party!) and it was in large part due to his knowledge as a DJ (he knows how to read a crowd and his music selection was spectacular). Not only did he perform his duties as MC/DJ but he was also an incredible help with the smooth operation of the reception. Overall, our experience with DJ Dario was exceptional and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a MC/DJ for any event but particularly for multicultural wedding.

Dario was superb. We handpicked him due to his experience with different music types as we were preparing for a mixed group (Peruvian, Brazilian, American). He was able to accommodate our last minute song changes seamlessly. Even though we had not met in person until the day of the wedding, we were immediately set at ease as he emceed our event. He is a consummate professional and genuinely enjoys what he does.
