INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
My style is to learn about what music my clients enjoy and then to synthesize their ideas and favorite songs with a range of music spanning different eras and genres. I have the natural skills to build up the dance floor and keep it going, by being able to predict what songs will please the crowd in the moment.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No, although I don't necessarily encourage requests. You're hiring me for a reason, to entertain your guests. That's my expertise. That being said, I am at your service for any audio or video needs you might have and will produce your event exactly to your specifications.
What is your usual attire?
Black suit, white shirt, black or pink and gray striped tie.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
In general I will purchase music that is requested that I may not have. For certain international events, I may ask the client for hard-to-find songs.
How many other DJs do you work with?
We have two full-time DJs on staff and are associated with two others.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
No minimum
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Always
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We have done events with flavors from all over the world: India, Israel, Eastern Europe, Spain, Italy, Chile, Vietnam, Korea, Germany, Ireland, etc. We are comfortable with any crowd, theme or music style.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Of course.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Because no two events are the same and no two venues are the same, we have an impressive and extensive range of 13 different types of loudspeakers that can be combined in hundreds of ways. Every event has a customized audio layout that ensures that the perfect combination of equipment is used for your event. No other DJ offers the brands of speakers that we do: Bose, QSC, RCF, and Roland. We also have the ability to remote our speakers wirelessly. We also have battery-operated speaker options. We always bring back up equipment.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
A standard lighting package consisting of 2-3 moving colored LED lights are included with all of our weddings. A more substantial light show as well as uplighting is always available upon request.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
Setup time varies greatly. An event for 500 guests will require more setup time than an event for 75 guests. Setup usually takes between 30 minutes and 3 hours. We bring all of our own equipment, including a table, and a facade that covers our equipment for a very clean presentation. You won't see any messy wires.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We will only make announcements that our clients ask us to make. We do not speak during the songs. The music we play speaks for itself.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Switch up genres, tempos, etc. An empty dance floor is generally not going to be resolved by an MC asking people to dance. If people aren't dancing, we're not playing the right music.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We do not need any breaks. We are very skilled at running to the restroom and making it back before the song ends.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
We will provide any audio or video that the client would like. We can accomplish almost anything you can imagine.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We work in a pool with 5 DJs. There is always someone in call in case of emergency. We have never needed to use this.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Sometimes
What is your overtime rate?
$100/hour
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
No, travel costs are built into our initial rate quote.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Generally $200.

DJ Ersson was AMAZING! Dan really guided us through the whole process of picking music for the Wedding and setting up a timeline, he was super responsive and always answered any questions we had. I ended up finding Love in the Mix online and once I received a message back from Dan with all the information I knew it was a good fit.

Day of Wedding DJ Ersson was there with an assistant and we could not have asked for things to go any smoother! She had our guests dancing all night long! They are still talking about how fun it was! You will not regret picking Love in the Mix!

Dan and his team were amazing! They were great about keeping in contact and helping my husband and I choose the best songs for each part of the wedding! Dan kept the crowd dancing and really kept the wedding on schedule. I also loved the lighting, not only did we get up lights but he also included fun lighting during the late night dancing. Such a great experience!

Dan was extremely helpful when it came to planning the reception dinner. Just working off bands we liked, he chose the perfect music for the dinner and dancing part of the reception. And importantly, he improvised beautifully when the unexpected happened. We highly recommend him for any occasion calling for a DJ!

He was easy to work with, organized, always responded quickly to our emails and answered any questions we had. We provided Dan with an extensive list of songs and he played most of them and helped to make our special day perfect.

Dan and his team provided outstanding event service for us. I contacted him as a DJ, but soon found he was able to provide Emcee, DJ, and Lighting for our Wedding. From the initial meeting we had, to the actual event, Dan was a true detail oriented professional from beginning to end.

Dan met with me and my wife to discuss our vision for the event, as well as made an onsite visit to our photo studio where the event was to be held. His design sense was great, he made a 4 white walled studio space come alive with color and texture. He even adjusted the lighting of the studio to match the moods as the night unfolded. He was able to ensure that our night rolled smoothly from one point to another without making us feel rushed or like we were working at our wedding. There was also one point when the speeches were being made that an outside distraction occurred, and Dan promptly dealt with it, ensuring all eyes were on the speakers.

Dan also provided music for our ceremony at the Palace of Fine Arts. He had everything from the wireless mics, to other smaller additional tasks all worked out so we could simply enjoy our ceremony.

Dan not only was great, but his 2 additional assistants totally rocked! They were professional, courteous, and completely on top of there game. We received alot of compliments about the music selection, decor, and his Emceeing. Not only do I endorse him, I also plan on using him in future events that we will hold at our studio.

Dan's constant updates as well as check ins with me assured me that everything would run smoothly, and he did not disappoint. With all of the various details I had to keep track of, I never doubted that Dan had me covered. I encourage you to book a meeting with Dan and he will set all your concerns aside. He is a true professional. Thank you to Dan and your amazing team!

DJ Dan greatly exceeded our expectations as our wedding dj & emcee. He provided us with a thorough questionnaire, which truly helped me grasp all I would need to cover while planning the day of the event. While the questions revolved around our musical, lighting, video, mic & emcee needs, the questionnaire itself was structured such that it felt like a comprehensive wedding planning checklist for the day of the event. In short, this was a HUGE help in keeping me organized and prepared for the entire wedding day.
While planning, he was continuously patient with me, as I wasn't always timely with my instructions. Furthermore, he consistently responded to all my inquiries immediately, always asking the right questions & making expert suggestions to help us develop the perfect plans for our big day.
At the wedding, DJ Dan was even our saving grace! During the seated dinner service, while my husband & I were doing rounds to greet all our guests, it was DJ Dan who kept us on schedule. For anyone who has planned a wedding, you know how essential it is to stick to the schedule. Delays can lead to food getting cold or time running out before cutting the cake or the bouquet toss. Anyway, it was taking us too long to greet all the guests. It's so difficult to rush conversation with all our family & friends, & we really wanted to spend time with everyone. At one point I noticed DJ Dan (or shall I say Super Dan) standing several meters behind the guests we were currently chatting with. He wasn't pushy & he didn't say anything, he just made eye contact with me. Such a professional way to get my attention! I was able to pull away from the guests for a quick word, & he told me we had 10 minutes until the first dance was to begin.
His timing, catalog & selection of music, his understanding of my requests, his emcee ability (perfect not flashy) & equipment were all extraordinary! Plus his pricing was extremely reasonable. Thank you, DJ Dan, for making our day so remarkable!!!

Dan is hands down the best wedding DJ. Look no further because he is simply amazing at what he does. If there was a way to triple the star count here, I would! Dan made our wedding unforgettable and did it at a price we could afford.

From the very beginning, Dan made time to meet in person at the venue to check it out, answer emails, and came many hours early to the wedding reception to ensure everything went off without a hitch. He is so beyond prepared and he made us feel completely at ease.

He worked with us to identify just the right music for cocktail hour and dinner, and he was completely comfortable on the microphone to introduce those who gave speeches, the first dance, the cake cutting, etc. He used all of his own equipment and was able to procure absolutely any song we wanted, including some more obscure requests.

The dancing was incredible- everyone was on the floor the entire night- he played funk, soul, old-school hip-hop, and top 40, and he smashed all of the songs just perfectly. Dan can read the room and play music that gets the crowd on their feet!! Our guests have not stopped talking about how awesome the music was at our wedding.

Besides being an awesome DJ, Dan is a nice person and genuinely wants to make your day special- he truly empathizes with all there is to do that day and does what he can to ease the burden.

Love in the Mix (Dan) was one of the most important people who helped make our wedding A-MAZING and an awesome party! By the end of the night, my friends, family, and especially me was a hot mess from dancing our butts off all night! Dan played everything I requested and then some! I especially told him that I had one friend who ALWAYS requests "Who Let The Dogs Out" at every event and said that was on the no way play list. True to form, my friend went up and requested that horrific song and Dan straight up told him it was on the do not play list. AWESOME! Especially the look on my friends face, muhahaha. I was SO thankful and grateful that Dan listened to my requests! His price was a wonderful deal and to be quit honest, I would have a paid a lot more for his music services! Our friends and family complimented our DJ all night and said it was one of the best, funnest weddings they've attended and I know that if we went with anyone else, we would not have at the memorable dream wedding I've always wanted.
Bottom line: Extremely affordable, highly professional, easy to work with, and just an overall awesome experience with Dan from Love In The Mix!!!

DJ Dan of Love In The Mix provided a wonderful experience for our wedding, from start to finish. He gave us world-class DJing for a very reasonable price, and he made this important element of our wedding stress-free. We highly recommend him.

Dan made planning the music for our wedding easy: he was always responsive, courteous, and patient with our questions and ideas. Dan was a total professional. We never had to stress about the music, because we felt confident that Dan would take care of everything.

Dan took our wedding music song requests and came up with a creative playlist for our reception. He completely understood our musical tastes and planned the playlist accordingly. At the wedding, he kept the reception running smoothly, and he spoke for just the right amount time, introducing speakers and dancers correctly. He had a real feel for our crowd and was able to keep the dance floor full all night! Our guests had a blast and gave us the best compliments all evening on the music. His equipment was unobtrusive and didn't interfere with the aesthetics of the venue. Most importantly for us, Dan is a genuinely nice person that got along well with our guests and other vendors, and we enjoyed having him be part of the wedding.

Dan did an amazing job at our wedding. He provided pitch-perfect sound for the ceremony, cocktail hour, toasts, and ceremony, in three distinct spaces over the course of the night. Even working by himself, he was able to transition from one part of the night to the next seamlessly. He took our requests seriously, but used his wisdom to fill in all the gaps that we hadn't thought of. And the next days, our feet ached from the great dance mix he put together. Your wedding is in excellent hands with Dan!

Love in the Mix will always and forever be our go-to DJ for any large parties or celebrations we have in the future. Working with Dan was fun, seamless, and always efficient, which is all a couple can ask for in the wedding planning process.

I have a deep love of and appreciation for music. Various genres and artists can really set the mood and tone for an event. I feel as though the philosophy behind Love in the Mix is rooted in that same belief and feeling, and talking to Dan about why he loves to DJ events made it obvious that he would make our wedding unforgettable.

On a more logistical level, Dan was open to all of our requests and also made great suggestions for any gaps he saw. Love in the Mix gave us lots of notice to create our list of song requests and successfully integrated Indian music into the mix, too! Dan set everything up on schedule in three different locations (ceremony, reception, and afterparty). Love in the Mix truly knows their stuff.

Thank you Dan for providing one of the most important elements for our wedding weekend, and for making it so memorable.

Dan was wonderful! He has great taste in music and totally got what my husband and I were into (and not into). He easily kept people dancing until the after party was over and my dad was having such a good time he wanted to extend the after party! Dan was able to interweave many different styles of music so that all the generations were dancing at once and having a great time. During our reception he seamlessly introduced speeches, our dance and the cake cutting without any awkward pauses or down time. He made us feel like we were in good hands and could relax an let the wedding unfold without us stressing about it. I highly recommend hiring Dan for you wedding. He's a great guy!

We are so happy with the DJ services that Dan provided for our wedding day. He was extremely professional and flexible, and while many other brides care most about their dress, venue, etc., for me - the music was of primary importance. Dan patiently worked closely with me as I hand-picked almost every song - creating different themes/moods for each part of the wedding. He never seemed to get annoyed and was happy to make changes or additions to the playlist. The day of - he was very professional, and everything went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend Dan - unlike many other DJ's that I consulted with he didn't have an ego that got in the way of what I wanted - in other words, his priority was meeting my needs, not showing off his knowledge of music or scratching skills.

Dan did a fantastic job at our wedding. The party didn't stop all night long. I like that we were able to control each song that was played at our wedding...well almost each song. People started requesting music and I think he had a hard time saying "no" to some people. Overall, he did a great job!!

I hired Dan with Love in the Mix to DJ my wedding a few weeks back and it was the best decision I made! If you are planning a wedding, you MUST hire him! The most important thing to me about my wedding was to throw a good party and it far exceeded my expectations. I was unable to peel myself off the dance floor all night and every person I’ve talked to since the wedding has said how great it was to see the bride having so much fun. And I owe it to Love in the Mix.
From the moment I hired Dan, he showed me he cared about making my wedding day special and fun. I gave him a rough overview of what I wanted for ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing music. Based on that, he sent me sample playlists for each part of the evening and my husband and I went through them and, together with Dan, narrowed it down to our top choices. He also met with us in person to listen and review music and was willing to communicate with us as much as we wanted throughout the process to ensure we were comfortable with the music. My ceremony was in a church and Dan offered to bring his portable equipment to play the music there and be at the reception in time to have music playing by the time guests arrived. We knew what I wanted for our first dance song, but wanted the song edited. Dan immediately sent us an edited version of the song that was just perfect for us. We struggled to decide on the song my wedding party would be introduced to. Given Dan’s knowledge of my music taste and details I’d provided about the wedding, he suggested a song that we ended up using and it was awesome. I told him I wanted an instrumental version of a specific artist played as guests arrived and he immediately sent me versions that I was so excited about. He knows more about music than anyone I know! When I hired a DJ I didn’t expect to also find someone with such vast knowledge of all music genres. And he is a great MC. He did a great job making introductions and ensuring we stuck to our timeline of events. My mom and I were just discussing how great my wedding was and she said “was it such a great wedding because you have such great friends or is it because you hired such a good DJ?”

I was completely at ease on my wedding night. Dan took care of the fun, and was sure each step of the night happened according to plan. I cannot express enough how happy you will be if you go with Love in the Mix for your wedding, or any other event. Thanks Dan!

My husband and I had our wedding this past October and after an extensive search and plenty of interviewing prospective DJs in the North Bay and San Francisco, we selected Dan to be our DJ. It was hands down one of the best choices we made for our wedding celebration.

From the beginning, Dan wanted to make sure that we had the wedding music and mood that WE wanted!

Highlights:

1. From the beginning, Dan was involved with our reception coordinator and sat in on "timing" meetings with her and us. He was in contact with her directly over questions he had regarding setup, shutdown, loudness, etc- things that could have easily been considered "our tasks" leading up to the wedding. He really took the stress out of having to get every question answered. He was extremely professional throughout the whole process and really did his homework and listened to what we were saying. I felt like he really played and did exactly what we wanted. The music during the cocktail hour was different than the music during the dinner and during the dancing. Dan seems to have a good grasp on what is appropriate for each setting.

2. Direction during the wedding. Dan kept the wedding going - he was on time with all the events during the reception. Our photographer was leaving at 9:30pm and we had the cake, garter and bouquet toss starting at 9pm so she could get photos. There was such a slim window of time to make sure everything happened in order to get the photos we wanted, and Dan knew this and made sure it was all done when it was supposed to without having to track us down and get us to get everyone organized. He did all of that for us.

3. Preparation before the wedding. We gave Dan our "must play" songs and he filled in the rest. We reviewed our playlist and took off what we didn't like. Up until the last day I was texting him songs I can't believe I forgot to put on there. He accommodated all my annoying, crazy bride, last minute requests with such a great attitude. I remember saying, well, if you can't do it, it's fine and he replied "this is your wedding- you should have whatever you want". So he was able to guide us with songs and timing of music (older music for the older folks first) and really gave us a lot of direction that worked well for our guests.

4. Announcements during the wedding. Dan did an excellent job; again he kept things moving- he wasn't shy or timid, but didn't take over hosting the entire wedding. He wasn't telling jokes or making comments- he let us be the ones who shined and he played the music and got all the organizing done.

5. Guests comments- everyone loved the music. We got many, many comments on how Dan and the music selections were awesome. It was perfect for us and for our friends and appropriate for our families as well. He suggested to us beforehand how many slow songs, etc should be played and really played everything at the times that seemed to fit best.

I know you will be extremely happy with your selection of Dan as your wedding DJ. I was nervous because music can really make or break the mood during the wedding, but as soon as we starting working with Dan, we knew everything was going to be what we wanted... and it was!

I can't say enough great things about Dan and Love in the Mix, the DJ for our September 2010 wedding in Asheville, NC. He assisted, song by song, in setting exactly the right mood for each part of our wedding reception. He's a genius at all types of music and will help select just the right thing for you. On the day of the wedding, he worked so hard to make sure we were happy with how things were going. You will not find another DJ who work harder to make sure you get exactly what you want. I couldn't recommend him more highly. Five stars!!

We hired Love in the Mix as our wedding DJ in January 2010 for our June 2010 wedding. We couldn't have been happier with Dan as our DJ, and here's why:

1) Open, Honest, and Knowledgable - Unlike many wedding DJ's we met with, Dan really is open to what the bride/groom want, but is also very honest about what he thinks will work and won't work. That's hard to come by. You are paying someone not just to spin records, but to get their insights into what will make the evening more special. Dan had some incredible suggestions for us on transitional songs, songs for the processional, recessional, dance music. He blended it well with our suggestions and the evening went off without a hitch.

2) Prepared, Anticipates, Instills Confidence - So not sure about you, but we wanted a DJ that was several chess moves ahead of us - that's Dan in a nutshell. Even before we provided our set-list, Dan provided us with a template to help us structure things to make the process go smoothly. When we met with him, he had the entire line-up ready and had some perfect backup selections on standby when various pieces didn't work. Additionally, he knew that some song arrangements worked better than others - and had those ready for our listening pleasure. That was all leading up to the wedding day and made us feel 110% confident that we were in the right hands. That's what you especially want - one less thing to worry about leading up to your big day. On the wedding day, Dan continued to exceed expectations. I actually had planned everything down to the milli-second - music transitions, etc., but even my precision didn't hold up and we needed extra music tracks to fill in. Dan knew this and had music ready and waiting so there were no and I mean no awkward gaps in the night. Believe me, my wife and I have been to weddings where there are awkward gaps between wedding events. Dan anticipated and planned ahead - and that made a huge difference.

3) The Right Personality - So it's your wedding and you are the center of attention - not the DJ. Some DJs know this and some do not. Dan fully appreciates this. He has the right blend of fun/energy - but not over the top where it steals the spotlight from you and the groom.

Dan was great! He was an excellent DJ, but not only that - he also did the lighting for our reception - and at a very, very reasonable price. He even met with us on site before the big day to have what he called a "lighting summit" and discuss what we wanted and try different light options. It ended up being perfect - the music, the lighting, everything. I definitely recommend Love in the Mix.

Dan is hands down the best wedding DJ. Look no further because he is simply amazing at what he does. If there was a way to triple the star count here, I would! Dan made our wedding unforgettable and did it at a price we could afford.

From the very beginning, Dan made time to meet in person at the venue to check it out, answer emails, and came many hours early to the wedding reception to ensure everything went off without a hitch. He is so beyond prepared and he made us feel completely at ease.

He worked with us to identify just the right music for cocktail hour and dinner, and he was completely comfortable on the microphone to introduce those who gave speeches, the first dance, the cake cutting, etc. He used all of his own equipment and was able to procure absolutely any song we wanted, including some more obscure requests.

The dancing was incredible- everyone was on the floor the entire night- he played funk, soul, old-school hip-hop, and top 40, and he smashed all of the songs just perfectly. Dan can read the room and play music that gets the crowd on their feet!! Our guests have not stopped talking about how awesome the music was at our wedding.

Besides being an awesome DJ, Dan is a nice person and genuinely wants to make your day special- he truly empathizes with all there is to do that day and does what he can to ease the burden.

This review is long overdue: Dan did a wonderful job of personalizing our music selections for cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. He was professional at every step of the process and did not hesitate to accommodate us for our first meeting (by going to a location between SF and Sacramento where we live) or by being available by phone. We received many compliments about our music during and after the wedding from people of all walks of life. Dan was really able to mix our own eclectic taste in with some crowd pleasers. I would definitely recommend him to close friends or family.

We hired Love in the Mix to DJ our wedding in Glen Ellen in 2007. It was a great overall experience. Dan did such a great job with the music that the dance floor was filled all night. I really appreciated how much Dan cared that we enjoyed the music at our wedding. He sat down with us for as long as we needed to go over types of music and specific songs for the cocktail hour and for the dancing. It is a huge bonus that Dan has a very broad and eclectic taste in music and had great ideas for songs that would keep our parents dancing and ways to transition that into more modern hits.

It was also really nice to work with someone who grasped the significance of the event. Dan did a great job with introductions, time management, and respectfully interacting with all of the guests requesting songs.

Our wedding was an amazing event that I will cherish for the rest of my life. I believe that hiring Love in the Mix was a large contributing factor in creating those positive memories.

Overall we were very happy with the service provided by Love in the Mix on our wedding day. DJ Dan made very sure to check out our specific needs way before the day of the wedding. He was very reliable; great at meeting our needs. Great value service, good work moral. He is a very good DJ.
The only thing that was not the greatest was some feedback noise from the officiants mic during the ceremony. Other than that, I think he did a great job and I would definitely recommend him.

love in the mix responded with the following comments:

I always arrive early to soundcheck my equipment, especially the microphones. During soundcheck, I optimized the mic sound and placed the microphone on the officiant.Between soundcheck and the beginning of the ceremony, the officiant moved the mic. Lapel microphone placement is critical for avoiding feedback.
