Really glad we went with Sutherland Entertainment for our wedding. Prices were reasonable and Spencer was very responsive to questions via email. DJ Derek was our DJ and he was great -- professional, played all our requested songs, and spun a great mix. He made all the announcements we asked him to make but did not try to take over the show. (If you're looking for a more in-your-face DJ/MC presence, then you should probably specify that ahead of time. We had family members play that role for us so DJ Derek was perfect.) Overall, planning was a breeze, we were happy, guests were happy -- would choose again.

I am giving Sutherland Entertainment 5 stars!! After reflecting on our wedding day, I was MORE than satisfied with their DJ services! Before I rave about how amazing our DJ was, I do want to warn future brides about one thing: Although Spencer (the owner) was very prompt and professional in his emailing, the contract and booking process was a bit confusing. I felt like I was purchasing a bunch of little packages instead of 1 package that included all that I needed. When I was researching for DJ's, the initial quote I got from Sutherland was in my price range; however, once I already booked with them and signed the contract, Spencer brought up additional things that were needed for our DJ service (for example: extra subwoofers because of our guest count- 250). It would have been nice to know all of the additional requirements up front before I signed anything or paid anything. Throughout the whole process, I ended up making 3 separate payments to them- 2 of which were for later additions. My advice for future couples is to read all emails and contracts very clearly and ALWAYS ask questions. I would also suggest a phone conversation as things tend to get lost in translation through email. ALL THAT TO SAY, I LOVED OUR DJ, MAT. DJ Mat exceeded my expectations as a wedding DJ. I could not have been happier with his talent. His speaking skills were smooth and flawless. He guided the night with ease and fun! He made a point to come over the head table, introduce himself, and wish us congratulations. He was also dressed very professionally in a tie. He had the dance floor packed by song #2 and nobody left for the rest of the night! I loved every single song he chose and he played almost every song that I put on our list.After the wedding, all of our guests were raving about how it was the best dance party/wedding they had ever been to!

Spencer and his team were great to work with! We got married at Wente Vineyards this past December where Sutherland is a preferred vendor. Spencer was easy to work throughout the whole process. With the music he ensured we felt in control enough of the playlists and song selections while still providing feedback and suggestions given his experience. For the lighting we got married in a wine cave and the amber up lighting he suggested was beautiful and complemented the candlelight. And DJ Derek was fantastic at our wedding - we had a very intimate wedding and he read the crowd and had everyone dancing all night! He took song requests while still ensuring it fit with the overall vibe. Guests came up to us after the wedding to tell us how great he was. Highly recommend!

We booked Sutherland Entertainment for our October 2015 wedding reception at The Westin St. Francis. We chose Sutherland Entertainment in part because they were a preferred vendor of the St. Francis and because they were highly rated on Yelp. I can tell you that Spencer did not disappoint, he was responsive, professional, accommodating and very easy to work with. His pricing is fair and competitive. And DJ Cody was fantastic! I had so many guests compliment him, he kept the party going and the music was great! If you need a DJ, then I would highly recommend Sutherland Entertainment, they are the best!

We picked Sutherland as a preferred vendor for the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco, and we definitely know why they're a preferred vendor. They were fantastic! We picked the platinum package and it was perfect for our needs. Sutherland was quick with their responses, and their guitar player for our ceremony (Justin) and DJ and tech (Cody and Evan) for our reception were great.
We gave our requests for the ceremony (our two processional songs were Somewhere over the Rainbow and Here Comes the Sun) and Justin played them beautifully, and tied them together so well.
Before the event, I also filled out a form picking 50 of my "love" music and 25 "like" songs (as well as list songs that I absolutely didn't want played), and Cody played it all and mixed it so fantastically. Great sound quality and great lighting. Everyone was raving about the music all night!
I had been on the fence before the event about whether we should've gone with the diamond package (includes a photobooth). I think that is absolutely a great choice, and I might add that if I had to do it all over again, but I also didn't feel like we were lacking anything in the party without it because the music kept everyone going all night and it was a fantastic party.
We had an absolutely blast, thank you, Sutherland Entertainment!

We had Spencer help guide us to pick a suitable DJ for our wedding in the Bay Area and he was awesome. All of his instructions were clear, detailed and professional. He sent DJ Von for the job and we could not have been happier with that choice. Von was on time, friendly, polite and sweet. Did exactly what we told him, was prepared and everything was seamless. Thank you!

I just had my wedding with 9/5/15 and booked my guitarist and DJ through Sutherland Entertainment. My guitarist was Justin Houchin and my DJ for the evening was DJ Von. Justin was absolutely amazing and very easy to work with. He played the guitar beautifully and helped guide us to picking the best selection of music for the ceremony. DJ Von was the absolute best wedding DJ ever. Our number one goal for our reception was to get everyone on the dance floor and keep them there and DJ Von did just that. He knows how to read the crowd and play the right music at the right time. His MC-ing is super casual and flows incredibly well with the event. He was extremely helpful during the planning process, very responsive, and made the entire experience so easy. His music selection was perfect - great mix of oldies, trendy music, and a lot of awesome remixes. I highly recommend working with him - it'll be one of the best decisions you make while planning your event or wedding. Overall my experience with Sutherland Entertainment was the best. You will not regret your decision working with them.

Our wedding was last weekend and I'm STILL getting rave reviews and basking in the glow of DJ Cody and Sutherland Entertainment. DJ Cody is an A++++++++. A lot of our guests were in the mood to 1. drink and 2. dance. Cody made sure that the dance floor was packed the entire night.

Upon returning to work this week, my coworker (who attended our event) immediately said to me "Wedding was amazing! That DJ!!!" Most people say it's the best wedding dance floor they've ever been on.

DJ Cody worked with us patiently and expertly throughout our planning process. He played songs perfectly throughout our ceremony (even cutting one track to make it flow better). He took requests, but filtered out the ones that wouldn't have made the party better.

If you're getting married in the area, you need DJ Cody. It's that simple.
