DJ Derik was amazing. Very professional from the moment I contacted him. He answered every question, accommodated all of my requests and arrived at the venue early to make sure everything was perfect. And did I mention dressed impeccably!!! Right down to his cuff links. He knew exactly what to play to get the crowd going and continued until the party was over. I would HIGHLY recommend him and will DEFINITELY use him for anything in future. DJ Derik is much much more than a DJ, he does it all and in a very professional, charming, classy way.

Rip Tide entertainment service is beyond anything i have experienced before. They were referred to me by one of their past clients who said there was no one better. I needed their service for a school fundraiser, a Father Daughter dance for our elementary school. I met with Derik and laid out our needs and concerns. We were especially concerned because of the age of the girls and we wanted appropriate music for the age group. We were also concerned with the possibility that the fathers might not be comfortable dancing to their daughters music choices, or dancing at all. In meeting with Derik and Rebecca, i was immediately impressed with their professionalism. They shared with us their many years of experience, over 20 years. After talking through the details, I new they were the ones for us. I booked the event and we began our planning. We had several calls to discuss the logistics of the event. Derik described his equipment, and the list was endless. When he asked us what we wanted or needed, i honestly couldn't answer him. I didn't really know what we needed, since we hadn't planned such an event before. Derik said not to worry, and asked if he could schedule a time to come look at the venue so he could make a proper suggestion. Much to my amazement, Derik drove 90 minutes each way, to come look for himself and didn't even attempt to charge us for the trip. Our event day was upon us. Derik and Rebecca showed up at the committed time and immediately got to work. Between the unbelievable sound and the amazing light show they created, everyone was just amazed. The night could not have been any better. The girls danced constantly and even the dads!! Derik stepped away from his stage and even gave lessons to the dads on how to line dance. The girls just loved it. We cant thank Rip Tide entertainment enough. Derik and Rebecca were just amazing. When many of the girls gave them hugs and several dads gave handshakes, i knew we made the right choice. Thank you!

Sorry, this is my first review I have written, but I needed to make sure other people were able to get the amazing service my wife and I got from Derek. Everything was extremely fun, but also moved smoothly throughout the night. All of my immediate family have never been to a wedding before, so I'm glad we had Derek, 'cause he set the standard high.
Thanks again Derek!

If you want your wedding day to be spectacular call Derik and Rebecca right now! From the very first moment my wedding planner gave me their number and said "you are going to love them" I knew it was the perfect fit. They are the nicest and most supportive people I have ever worked with. I was in the process of moving to LA for a new job and planning a wedding at the same time. So as you can imagine life was crazy. Derik and Rebecca were so understanding and would just text me to see how the move went and if they could do anything to help make the wedding planning less stressful. They were incredibly flexible with my ever changing schedule and always made time to talk to me by text, phone and even Skype. Our wedding day went perfectly. I still have guests of the wedding telling me how great the music was and how much fun they had dancing. Even those in my family who rarely dance hit the irresistible dance floor. Derik and Rebecca treated our wedding day with as much care, passion, and excitement as I imagine they would their own wedding. They truly care about your happiness and the success of your wedding. Give them a call and I promise they will exceed your expectations.

We love you guys!

I would definitely recommend DJ Derik and Rebecca. They treat you like family and help you along the way. They even go out of their way to check in with you and give you advice, not only in regards to your music but also just about your wedding day in general. They were there to calm my nerves and I really appreciate them!

We were truly blessed to have had DJ Derik and his wife Rebecca be a part of our special day. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience with them. From the initial contact, they were easy to talk to, responsive, and flexible. They made us feel comfortable, like they were family; which helped set the stage for the wedding. Riptide Entertainment exceeded my expectations and they represent the highest standards of professionalism, quality, and compassion for what they do.

Riptide entertainment fully executed what we envisioned and provided feedback to set the tone and environment of the wedding. They do what they do best, and that's telling a story of love through music. Everything was absolutely perfect.

They are like family... And we definitely felt the love from them that night.

DJ Derik and Rebecca with Riptide Entertainment were absolutely amazing and wonderful to work with!! The first time we met it felt like we had known them for years-they are easy going and fun to talk too but incredibly professional at the same time. We hired them 8 months before our wedding but even after hiring them they were constantly checking in on us, asking how wedding planning was going and if they could help in any way. Rebecca even helped me get some leads on other vendors. The week of the wedding, DJ Derik called us to make sure everything was set and even gave me his cell number so I could text him with any last minute changes or questions. On the day of, DJ Derik was great! The music was amazing and everyone was on the dance floor. He also checked in on us frequently to make sure we were doing ok and helped keep the wedding on schedule. I even asked him last minute to play a song that was not on the original must play list and he made it work no problem!!! My mom is hard to please when it comes to DJs/wedding music and she loved them. Derik and Rebecca are truly wonderful to work with and do an amazing job-I cannot recommend them enough!!

Where do I even begin for Riptide Entertainment... Derik and Rebecca are absolute the BEST in what they do. I interviewed 3 different DJs and I knew by the time Derik said Hi that I wanted him to be our DJ. I felt an immediate connection with him and in the end of the interview he became my friend. Derik handles all music and timeline related details while his wife Rebecca handles everything else. They respond to communication extremely quickly even when they were on vacation and I told them to not to bother emailing me back until after their vacation - they told me I was silly and still responded.

It was important to me that we had a unplugged ceremony, Derik ensured me that he would make an announcement and promised that Rebecca would ask people nicely to put their phones away (if she saw them during the ceremony). Everyone at the wedding LOVED Derik - his personality is stellar, he played music that was fitting for all generations, had great ideas and he even went above and beyond as a DJ. There was a loose dog at the venue that he helped get and even served my husband and I drinks at dinner.

If you are on the fence about the perfect DJ - don't be... Derik is the perfect choice!
