I started DJing in 2002, practicing in my bedroom day in and day out. A year later, I began DJing high school dances and night clubs around the Bay Area.

In 2004, I decided to add weddings to the list of events I cater to, and have since been a part of over 50 ceremonies and receptions.

My services include: providing full sound and lighting for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and/or reception; making announcements to keep the night moving along smoothly, and making sure all your guests dance the night away, not wanting to go home.

Please feel free to e-mail/call me with any questions you may have!

Thank you and congratulations on your engagement! Read less

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Classical, Dance, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Pop, R&B, Rock, Soul
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
I like to mix things up and typically take people back in time with the dance music, ending the night with more current songs (if allowed). =)
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Never! It wouldn't be YOUR wedding if I set a limit for you.
What is your usual attire?
I always come to weddings in formal attire, unless directed otherwise.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No, I will always buy any songs I do not have from iTunes.
How many other DJs do you work with?
I usually bring 1-2 other individuals with me to make sure your night is seamless.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
I will DJ for any amount of time.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely. This is encouraged, as I want to make sure you're 100% comfortable with me, and vise versa.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes. I believe we are living in a time where people no longer enjoy the macarena. Haha.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes. I have enough equipment to fill venues with over 1000+ people capacity. Depending on your venue, I will bring the ample amount.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
I have Par64 LED uplighting that has the capability to change colors throughout the night. I also have fog machines.
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?
Depending on the nature of the setup, I can take anywhere between an hour to 3 hours. I do require a 6 ft table is set up for me in the specified part of the room.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No. Your wedding should not be used as a place of advertisement for myself. If your guests are interested in my services, I have business cards.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
I can act as the MC for your event, although I've noticed that guests pay more attention to someone they know (ie relative or friend)
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
One thing I like to do is tell people that the bride and groom want everyone on the dancefloor!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
The only break I would take is for dinner, but even then, there will always be music playing. And when I do take breaks, it's only when there is a gap in events for the evening.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
That would never happen.
 
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Never.
What is your overtime rate?
My rates cover your whole event. That might be more of a question for the venue. =)
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
My travel expenses are included in the rates I provide for all clients.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
25% non-refundable deposit to secure the date, and the remaining balance on/before the day of the event.

Ryan was an awesome DJ and emcee. He was very helpful and proactively shared ideas to make our special day that much better. We got many compliments from guests who loved the playlist! (We requested a mix of pop, top 40s and hip hop.)

I would definitely recommend him to any and all clients who are looking for a professional and friendly DJ who does a great job managing the schedule, reading the crowd, and providing emcee services when appropriate (i.e., no hogging the mic and drawing undue attention to himself, as I've noticed at other weddings).

Ok, so I normally don’t write reviews, but for Ryan, this is a must. Ryan really blew me away on my wedding day with his DJ-ing and MC. Not only did Ryan help make my wedding super special and memorable, he also impressed my in-laws as well as a majority of my wedding guests. I received nonstop compliments about him and how much they loved my DJ. I was extremely impressed when there were already a large number of people dancing right after dinner before I even got to the dance floor.

If you want someone who is extremely organized and keep the party going, Ryan is definitely the person to go for and you will not be disappointed.

We hired Ryan to provide lighting and music for our wedding and were completely blown away by his service, flexibility and professionalism. We asked Ryan to help us create a warm setting for our dinner reception and he provided suggestions on where to place lights, what color to use and the amount of lighting we needed to get the feel we were looking for. He went to extremes to get the lighting color perfect and created a warm and beautiful ambiance for our dinner reception.

We only had to meet with Ryan once because he knew exactly what we wanted. He made sure to play all the music we requested and did a great job getting our guests to dance. We could not have been more pleased with Ryan and would definitely recommend him to any couple looking for a fun, professional and well experienced DJ.

Ryan did a superb job as DJ and was a major contributor to the success of our wedding as a very fun energetic party where pretty much everyone felt comfortable dancing wildly. He really knows what he's doing for both the preparation and during the event itself. For preparation, he gave some brilliant suggestions including having the bridal party dance in to their own chosen song clips ("entrance music"), and also for how to space the various components (dinner, speeches, dancing, toasts, slideshow). He was very responsive over email to various questions and song suggestions. He did present his ideas but was flexible in accomodating our ideas.
Then during the event itself he did an amazing job facilitating a very fun party without putting himself in the center of things. He made his announcements but otherwise just let the principals in the wedding and the guests take center stage. His music selection and sequencing worked extremely well for both the first part of dancing, which was for younger people and adults, and then for the wilder last section, which was for the younger people.
We had so many unprompted compliments on our DJ, and more on the party and dancing and music, that I felt like I had to recommend Ryan!

We didn't get to meet Ryan until the day of wedding. We always communicate via emails and phone. From his responsiveness and professional suggestions and advices, we were never in doubt.

We had a hard time picking out songs so we ended up just picked a few must-have and had Ryan fills the rest. He did great on adding songs that set the mood and our guests enjoyed them. Like many brides, I sent Ryan the song list and the activities during the reception the last very minute. But Ryan was able to accommodate and handled everything very smoothly.

We also rented the uplights from him. We weren't sure what color to use so we just left it up to him. It turns out the blue worked perfectly with the room along with our color theme. The uplights made quite a impact to the overall look of the reception and we're glad we went with it. The setup along with speakers, microphones, and projector was also hassle-less on us.

The service Mixter Li provided was all around exceptional and we highly recommend!

Hiring Ryan was one of the best decisions we have made for our wedding reception in April 2011. He replied to my initial inquiry within a few hours, easygoing, flexible, honest, reliable and just overall a nice guy to talk to and work with. During the wedding process, he always listened to our ideas, made helpful suggestions that allow us to achieve our overall vision for the reception e.g. coordination of the slideshows, photobooth (which turned out to be a really fun idea). Our wedding reception was at a restaurant that was divided into a bar area, main dining area and cake room and Ryan managed to wire all three rooms. It took him several hours. He even came to the venue the night before the wedding to make sure the set up was done in time. He played all the songs we requested, added in songs that were appropriate for the mood and setting, made sure the volume was comfortable for all guests, and had the music on cue for all the events. We requested more mellow mood in the beginning and more upbeat songs toward the end and his music arrangement accommodated the mood change quite well. When he made announcements for us, he was very professional and polite. He managed to get along with all other vendors and guests.

We also rented projector and screen from him. The screen was huge! and the projector was of high quality so the pictures in our slideshows came out true to color, sharp, and just beautiful to watch.

The whole day went incredibly smoothly, there was not a single technical difficulty. I can't believe we even considered an iPod wedding initially. It would have been a nightmare to set up all the equipments and the rental equipments would not have sounded anywhere as good as Ryan's high end speakers. The sound was warm and filled the entire restaurant.

My hubby and I recommend Ryan without any reservations. Although we didn't anticipate spending $$ on a DJ, Ryan was worth every cent. He provided much needed peace of mind on the day of our wedding. We knew we were in good hands : )

Ryan is personable and is an all around great DJ. We were referred to him by a friend of ours who got married recently.
My husband was impressed with his mixing skills and wanted to hire him right away.
We met for a consultation and to go over song lists. He was prompt and organized.

I don't think you can ask of anything more from a DJ, but he also went above and beyond by setting uplighting (additional cost) for us last minute.

I think you can search endlessly for DJ's, but I prefer to go with people who have been referred to me, so now Im referring him to you.

Having Mixter Li at our wedding was an excellent choice. Definitely one of the favorite vendors of the day.

Ryan is so natural on the mic. He was an amazing emcee for our reception. Thanks to him, things transitioned very smoothly. He was very accommodating and flexible. He let the program flow at a natural pace, all while keeping us on schedule. He kept the party going. Prior to the event, I had emailed Ryan several times with changes in the schedule. He was understanding and responsive every time. He went beyond his job description: he asked my sister/MOH to teach him my parents names in Cantonese before introducing them!! That was really sweet.

Not only is he an excellent DJ and emcee, Ryan also provided beautiful purple uplighting for our event!! The uplights transformed the room and we received many compliments on it even long after our wedding. He was timely in setting up and getting the room ready way before the reception started. He was helpful in our color choosing process. We decided on purple (his uplights come in many many colors). In my opinion, professional lighting REALLY makes a difference in the event. And Ryan made it happen.

Mixter Li is extremely professional and talented. I am very happy that he was part of our wedding!

Mixter Li was fantastic! From step one, the site visit & planning, he was on point. He came with his team, knew all the right questions to ask the venue, and gave us his thoughts on lighting treatments, etc. We trusted him completely as we didn't know much about lighting and he totally came through. His set-up was efficient and focused and the space was lit gorgeously! Fun, appropriate for the space, dramatic, yet not over-the-top. He knew exactly what the space needed for that extra punch and his color choice, purple, worked perfectly! Even better than his lighting know-how are his DJ skills. Our guests were dancing up a storm the entire night. Mixter Li knows what gets people on their feet and keeps them there. He played all of the songs we requested and mixed it up a bit but kept within the genres that we'd requested. We had numerous guests tell us afterwards that they had never danced so much at a wedding before!
