Derek was simply amazing. We actually never met before the wedding, but every vendor I spoke to in Lake Tahoe said that Derek was the best in town. I can say without a doubt that they were all right! I reserved Derek's services and made requests via email as we were coming from out of town. We had a custom cut song for our first dance and some fairly obscure song requests for both the ceremony and reception. Everything went perfectly. Derek also handled a few "surprises" planned by our friends and manage to rework the schedule to accommodate sunset pictures and cake cutting without any disruption to the flow of the wedding. We also reserved the photobooth service with the DJ services. This was an amazing addition. We ended up with a scrapbook full of notes and silly pictures of our friends instead of a traditional guest book. With just a rough timeline and a rather unusual list of song requests, he made the whole ceremony and reception run smoothly. He really was a wedding coordinator/DJ/host/calm moral support all-in-one on our wedding day.

We had the pleasure of working with Derek and his wife for our wedding, and we are exceptionally happy with our choice to go with them. We met Derek at a bridal show and were immediately impressed by his personality, technology, and willingness to run the show during our wedding. As anybody who has put on a wedding would know, stress levels are high and any timing issues can be disastrous. Luckily for us Derek communicated with our photographers, caterers, etc to ensure that the night ran smoothly and that any delay was unnoticeable by our guests. As a DJ, Derek did an awesome job picking music for the entire night off of just a few songs that we gave him for reference. We also had a friend sing our first dance and Derek helped find the karaoke version of the song and provided the microphone for him to sing, which went above and beyond what i had expected. My wife and I enthusiastically recommend Derek for any event and will look forward to contacting him again in the future if we have another event like this.

Thank you so much!

Derek is incredible! Such a professional, easy-going Master of Ceremonies (his accent was a lovely touch!), and life-of the party DJ. I could not be happier with our choice to use Derek for our wedding and he truly made it a memorable event. He was willing to come meet with us prior to the wedding to help ease-our minds and was willing to edit down songs for us for ceremony music. He was great at sensing the vibe of the crowd and playing appropriate music to match the energy. Our wedding turned into a massive dance party (which is exactly what we wanted) and I greatly attribute it to Derek.

Derek with Lake DJ is an outstanding DJ for any event you can imagine. He was incredible with our whole wedding party and really took charge of the day and kept everything on time and on track. He played incredible music, mixed perfectly and the dancefloor was packed all night. If you're getting married anywhere in Tahoe, hire him, you'll be glad you did!

Derek is the coolest guy. He really cares about making you happy on your wedding day. He DJ'ed both the ceremony and reception for us and did a great job with both. We didn't use traditional music for the ceremony, and he was great to work with when we told him what we wanted. We were also a bit untraditional in that we used only one song for the whole processional, including family, the wedding party, and the bride entrance. Derek made sure it worked out perfectly. He even had us send a separate sound file for the part of the processional music I wanted for my entrance, so that he could make sure to get the timing just right.

He also worked very well with our videographer, since the two of them needed to work together to coordinate audio.

He did a great job at the reception too. In addition to playing great music (and making sure to avoid our "do not play" list), he made the evening flow so smoothly, from the introduction to the toasts to the cake cutting all the way through the last dance.

Everyone had a great time, and we all loved his transparent DJ screen! All our guests thought that was so much fun, and it really made him stand out over other DJs. My now husband and I are really happy we chose him for our wedding.

Derek was awesome! He not only helps with the music, but he helps keep the wedding on track and on time. Here are a few points that I loved:

1. Before the wedding - he was very responsive and proactive. We met with him a few times before hand to discuss logistics. We loved his ideas and he was also open to our ideas. The timeline he provided really helped us tweak our own timeline since this is something we've never planned before.
2. During the wedding - he kept the wedding moving along smoothly. He worked with our musicians to make sure the audio was great. The music he played was awesome and kept everyone partying until we closed the place down. He also has the coolest DJ board that everyone loved.
3. Personality - it's great to work with good, quality people. Derek and his wife have a great attitude and love their job. They enjoy what they do, which comes across and makes them better at what they do.

If I had to go back and do it again, I'd definitely hire Lake DJ again. Thanks for making the night go so smooth Derek!

Best,
Neal and Kate
