Derek was incredible! We were from out of town and were having to do everything over email. He edited a song for me that meant a lot and that turned out perfect! He was perfect at making the ceremony flow into the reception. He made everyone feel comfortable and was just an amazing human to work with. He was very upbeat and friendly. He kept everything professional but very comfortable for my guests as well as my husband and I. There were so many special memories on our day and Derek was the perfect narrator for each and every part.

We booked Derek for our wedding on October 23, 2016 in South Lake Tahoe. Going in we had no idea what to expect, as we had never met Derek in person. We live in the Chicago area and his communication through e-mails was unreal. He was able to create a solid playlist from our music preferences, keep the crowd dancing, and be mindful of the bride and grooms music choices.

My wife and I have attended upwards of 50 weddings during our time together and he was hands down the best we have heard. Highly highly recommended.

Derek and his wife Vicki from Lake DJ Entertainment was AMAZING! He responded to all our emails in a timely fashion, and seriously knew his stuff. He was on task on the day of the wedding: he made the reception SO fun, he played our song list and kept our guests dancing! He even kept reminding me to EAT. There is so much happening on that day, and he and Vicki kept everything rolling right on time and with good energy. He also received many compliments from our guests!

Derek and Vicki provided DJ/MC and photo booth services for our wedding at Heavenly Lakeview Lodge on August 12th, 2016. They are amazing!! I highly recommend their services. We truly could not have asked for a better wedding and that was hugely thanks to Lake DJ.

Derek is such a pro and a really cool guy. He made the entire evening run so smoothly and everyone had a blast! It was a destination wedding with 50 guests. He kept the energy high and dance floor full. Not only was he wonderful on the day of, but he was so helpful and responsive during the planning as well. He even did a few edits for our special songs which turned out perfect!

Everyone loved the photo booth! We debated whether to have one or not since the wedding was going to be on the small side, but I am so glad we did! They had so many cool props and created a wonderful scrapbook of all the photos with messages from our guests. The print off was even customized to match our color scheme. Vicki is a sweetheart and did a great job running it!

Derek and Vicki are awesome people and I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding so spectacular!

We couldn't be happier with Lake DJ! Everything was perfect for our big day! The photobooth was a HUGE hit with our guests. Derek was very helpful in finding background music for my Grandfather to sing a Frank Sinatra song to as our last dance as well. Oh! And the Emulator transparent DJ screen was mind blowing!

My husband and I were so happy with hiring Lake DJ for our wedding. Derek is absolutely amazing and isn't just a great DJ! Right after the ceremony he came over to us, congratulated us and asked if he could grab us a drink from the bar, which was much appreciated. He was an excellent MC and made sure we stayed on track with the night's timeline. His music selection was perfect the whole night and he kept people dancing. We also added the photo booth to our package which was a great decision. They had tons of props and at the end of the night we were handed a thumb drive and a photo album with all the pictures and some very cute touches by his wife with stickers and sayings. We also got 2 CDs with the songs from the ceremony, our first dance and some others key songs from the night! Derek was so easy to work with and hiring him was one of the best choices we made. You will not regret having Lake DJ at your wedding!

Derek should be your choice for DJ at your wedding. His professionalism and level of service were so far beyond what we had hoped that it blew us away. We had been having a horrible time with our other vendors, and were at the point of just eloping if anything else went wrong prior to meeting with the DJ. Communication was effortless, and felt so from the very first meeting, where our half hour discussion extended to two hours before anyone realized it. At the wedding, he played all our varied songs in a flowing manner, worked in requests from our wedding guests, kept the party on schedule to hit all our activities, and even helped the bride sneak in a bagpiper to surprise the groom! All the guests loved him, and have discussed using him for their future weddings. Derek was really able to keep the focus on the wedding couple, without leaving anyone out of the party. At the end, we were given a mix of all the songs played at the ceremony and reception in order, for us to enjoy and relive the moments. His wife was even one of our photographers. Derek was the best choice we made with the event!

Derek Tarpey of Lake DJ served as MC and DJ at our daughter’s recent wedding at the West Shore Cafe & Inn. Derek was amazing!!! Our wedding planner was thrilled to hear he was doing the sound system for the ceremony and reception, telling us “he’s the best.” Every positive thing other reviewers have commented on was true for us, too. His demeanor was casually elegant and dynamic, never corny or overwhelming. He ran the entire reception with confidence and sensitivity to the energy of our guests. The music he chose reflected our daughter and son-in-law’s expressed preferences, and he magically paced the evening so that the dance floor was filled from start to finish! Most of all, his solicitous care for the comfort and joy of the bride and groom was truly a blessing. We are beyond grateful to Derek and his assistant for making the wedding a wonderful experience for all!

Derek was seriously the best! He was really fun to work with! He basically took care of running the entire wedding, which was very relaxing for us! He was very flexible and was happy to make any changes as the night went on. He kept the party going when necessary but didn't talk too much. He really made the night special for us and even gave us CDs of our wedding songs at the end of the night.
I highly recommend Derek to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding because he is a great master of ceremony and DJ!
