Hi! My name is Sabra Decker and have been helping couples with their musical needs for over 20 years. I make sure that your wedding reception runs smoothly and is filled with great "danceable" music chosen by YOU! I am a great "host" to your guests and let the music speak for itself, this is YOUR day...NOT the "Sabra Show"!

MORE INFORMATION on my services:

I have played for many clubs in the Fairfax, VA area and have peformed for HUNDREDS of weddings all over the N. Virginia-Metro Area. I pride myself on being a wedding “expert”! I meet with every bride and groom prior to their special day and goes over every aspect of the reception so that it will have a “flow” and to make sure everything will go smoothly. My “day job” as a meeting planner for a local trade association in Rosslyn has proven very helpful in guiding brides and grooms through this process.

I have a library of over 10,000 songs and have everything from Big Band Swing to the latest Hip Hop...perfect for every wedding or party. I ask all of my clients to let me know the music they DO and DO NOT want for their wedding or party, both are equally important to me. I always watch the dance floor to see what is working and adjusts the music accordingly, I have no pre-conceived musical agenda.

My emcee style is that of a good hostess for your guests, I do not try to overshadow “your day”! I can be as hands ON or hands OFF as far as announcements go…it’s your day, your choice! I am "fun but elegant"...not a "goofy" or "over the top" kind of DJ.

I will work with you in any kind of weather - take a look at the Blizzard of 2010 here is the Fox News link for what turned out to be a beautiful evening - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uok4sv0bVmE.

I would love to provide music for your upcoming wedding or party! Please send me an email and see if we are a good fit! I can provide you with availability, rates and references after I receive your email.

Thank you for considering Music By Sabra.

Sabra was great!
since we are living in New York, all communication had to be done via e-mail. did not get to meet her until the day before the wedding, however, Sabra was very prompt and responsive on answering any questions. Sabra drafted our Agenda as soon as she received the questionnaire sheet from us and she took every requests we had into her agenda.
Even though we had list of requested songs all ready, parents had last minute request, Sabra was so flexible and ready to play their request in few seconds. Our parents and guests were very pleased and how in-tune she was to the mood of the crowd.
We absolutely loved working with Sabra, everything worked out out much better than we anticipated- she is just amazing!

DJ Sabra is fantastic! I'm not very musically-inclined, and Sabra was a huge help in selecting appropriate songs for cocktails, dinner, and the special dances. We like a pretty diverse range of music, and she was able to fit it all in with perfect transitions between songs, as well as read the crowd to know what they wanted to hear next. She's more than just a DJ too, she kept track of time to make sure the event ran smoothly and we didn't miss anything. We have gotten tons of compliments on how great the music was, and I'd highly recommend using her!

Allison - I knew this would be a great party just by looking at your music list! I love when a bride knows her guests and lets me in on her knowledge but also allows me to mix the songs so that the evening is jumping! Thank you for your kind words and the pictures you sent. As always - DJ Sabra

She was great. The reception was so much fun and she was definitely one of the reasons why. She was very responsive to email and was willing to work with us for special song issues. She kept the party going and we got lots of compliments on the music selection. She makes the process really easy so that you can relax and enjoy your special night.

Sabra Decker, the DJ for our wedding and reception, was all I hoped for, and more. Her experience and knowledge of the music industry and insight regarding personal taste, was invaluable.

Our wedding and reception went without a hitch (no pun intended!) and the music throughout was perfect. Sabra worked closely with me to ensure that our music selections were used, and she made excellent suggestions regarding the music, as well as the reception, throughout the planning process. We didn’t hire a planner, and her expertise went a long way in guiding our way.

I agree with other reviewers, who have commented on Sabra’s personality – she is service-oriented, friendly, and realizes the importance of the occasion (she even came to our rehearsal). She is an impressive and charismatic professional, and is well versed in every type of music (including classical, rock, jazz, latin).

If there is any question about who to hire as a DJ, go with Sabra and you won’t be disappointed!

Sabra was awesome. She was responsive and will let you customize the exact songs you want. I was busy, so I more gave her general ideas/feelings and she was excellent. I asked for some christian songs during dinner and she went out and bought them for my event--awesome service!

She was able to take example songs I like/didn't like and extrapolate so I didn't need to micromanage her. So glad I didn't. She's experienced and kept the mix of music perfect for both young and old, dancing and chatting.

DJ Sabra was helpful and professional. She made great suggestions, and it was clear that she has years of experience. She kept our wedding reception running on schedule, and, more importantly, chose excellent music to keep our party going. She has a wide selection of music and can play anything you want from any genre you want. She was also very pleasant to work with. She responded to emails and phone calls in a timely and professional fashion. When we finally met her in person at the reception, she was a lovely person, the kind of person that you'd want to be friends with. If you want a good DJ, go with Sabra. You won't regret it.

Sabra was very organized and eager to make sure we had the exact wedding reception we wanted! She worked closely with our venue and had a detailed outline of what we could expect from her. She kept the dance party going and everyone had a great time! She also was the DJ at my sister's wedding, we used her because I loved that wedding so much! We highly recommend her!

DJ Sabra is fantastic! She literally knows exactly what to do and when to do it. You can tell she really enjoys what she does too and that makes a huge difference. The timeline that she sends you really helps a lot to get you thinking on what type of music you want to play during different moments at your reception.

There was not one time during our reception that I thought, "I don't like this song, why did she play this". I was also never concerned that there would be a lag in music. She was/is a professional through and through.

Sabra was wonderful to work with, very professional, helpful, and a very pleasant person. We had dancing and she had a wide variety of music for us to select from and even found the more obscure songs we were hoping for! Music during our dinner was just the right, a good mix and not too loud, as volume was a concern for some of our older guests. Sabra was always very responsive and always got back to my emails. She was very kind and understanding when I changed my mind about a few things at the last minute! I would highly recommend her as a DJ.
