Spencer Sutherland is a top notch professional DJ. He is very in tune to what gets the crowd moving and makes sure he plays the songs you want played. Our dance party could have gone all night! It was wonderful and I would definitely recommend Spencer to anyone looking to have a great party!

We couldn't have found a better DJ. We met with him in person and he explained what he does and offers in plain english. Once we signed him up, he was willing to meet with the father of the groom, the bride, and groom a month beforehand to go over details. A week leading up to the wedding he brought things to the attention of the bride and groom that other vendors neglected to mention. For example he had great input on the flow of the evening to make sure the guests would be entertained all evening.

We had him do live guitar for the ceremony and DJ for the cocktails and reception. The guitar was great. It was said to be "incredible" coming from a musical family member. I had guests come to me and say how great the DJ was without being asked. There were people on the dance floor from the minute dancing started all the way to when the DJ was required to stop by the venue.

I highly recommend Spencer for services as DJ and Musician for any wedding event. He played the classical guitar during our ceremony, which people raved about afterwords. Most importantly, he had the whole crowd dancing until the party was over. Not only in the moment of the wedding was he reliable but also in the planning process. I found him very easy to work with. He responded to all my email quickly and professionally. He was also very organized in making sure all details are communicated before hand, which on your wedding day is a dream come true. To put it lightly... Spencer Rocks!!! 5 Stars all the way!

We hired Spencer to DJ at our wedding and he did a fantastic job! He was very responsive and helpful throughout the whole planning process. He showed up at our venue early to setup and made sure everything was smooth from start to finish. His song choices were great and his mixes were flawless. He got people on the dance floor who we never saw dance before! We highly recommend Spencer because he’s good at what he does. We had a blast at our wedding thanks to him!

If searching for a DJ, search NO MORE. Spencer is not only the best DJ I've ever heard at a wedding, his planning skills are easy to use and he is SO organized, which in the midst of wedding planning, is a must! A DJ can make or break a crowd, Spencer did everything I paid him for and SO much more. He was attentive to our wants and needs and made everything run so smoothly! His music had the dance floor jammin the WHOLE night, and we didn't want him to leave!! This is hard to do with wedding guests of ALL ages! His flow of music couldn't have been better and we felt like he was a part of the party!! I only hope I have a reason to hire him again in the future!! THANKS SO MUCH, SPENCER!!

Spencer was recommended to us by our venue and after just one meeting, we knew why: he's incredibly talented, genuinely passionate about what he does, and a pleasure to work with. He talked to us about our likes and dislikes, listened to us about the kind of wedding we wanted, and gave us amazing guidance about how to make it happen. My fiance and I both care about music and wanted what was played at the wedding to reflect our taste; Spencer totally understood where we were coming from and made some great suggestions about how to incorporate what we wanted while still keeping the party going (he's great at feeling out the crowd and playing just the right song to get people on the dance floor). In addition to handling the reception, he played pre-ceremony guitar and people are still raving about how beautiful it was -- it really set the tone for everything that followed. He's a total pro. 5 stars!

Spencer is the coolest! The greatest thing is that he is not your typical DJ... he isn't shouting over the mic or playing cliches. He sticks to what you request and is able to read a room and deliver the right song to keep the party going. Spencer had his work cut out for him with our diverse, yet small, wedding party- lots of different age groups, lots of different requests, and lots of personalities. But, somehow he was able to keep us ALL dancing, and he stuck to respecting us as a couple and playing what we wanted to hear.

His skills on the guitar are unbelievable, as well. It was the perfect accompaniment to our Napa nuptials. He set the atmosphere with his Spanish guitar and provided something different for us and our quests than the typical songs you hear at most events. We highly recommend using Spencer for your event- ceremony music or as a DJ!!

We chose Spencer based on a recommendation from another vendor that told us that if we wanted a Dance Party...to hire Spencer.
Wow...was that the truth!!!
Spencer was completely professional, responsive and helpful during the planning process. He was accommodating and patient with any budget constraints and gave me a lot of great advice.
As for the day of...he played the guitar for the ceremony beautifully and then was nimble enough to switch over and make sure to play the songs we needed from his sound system for our recessional. He came and scouted our location the day before (because we hired him to play down in L.A.) and was totally fired up and prepared to make sure everything went smoothly.
He did a fantastic job of MC'ing the wedding...not talking too much but just making sure the guests knew what was going on.
He helped us pull off a fun choreographed first dance on an entirely different dance floor and even helped my husband surprise me with a serenade by having a sound system/mic ready for that... and he kept the secret!!! :D
He kept our dance floor absolutely PACKED all night!!! We thought that was going to be difficult because our dance floor was on a slant and we thought guests would not dance...forget about it! Spencer had them dancing so much that we actually pooled money together and paid him to stay an extra 3 hours (and he even threw in an extra half hour for us because he is so cool!)

You can't worry about every little song that is played...if you do, then you should have an IPOD list and hire a friend to man it. Spencer has the gift of music and the ability to read a crowd. Let him do his thing and you won't be disappointed!!!

I hired Spencer on the recommendation of a friend. I thought that the overall VALUE of his services was great. I read the other reviews, and I will say that there were some songs from my "must play" list that I do not remember hearing. Spencer is professional, and accomodating, I think that he did a GREAT job, both in his guitar playing and as a DJ, he was also REALLY REALLY excellent on the announcing/MC part of my wedding. Would I hire him for another event? - ABSOLUTELY! Would I recommend him? ABSOLUTELY! Again, I think that his whole package is a great value and worth the price.

Spencer is a wonderful classic guitar player, setting the appropriate tone for our son's outdoor wedding. He is also an astute and extremely engaging DJ who reads a diverse wedding reception house (140 people of all musical tastes), and both cradled and rocked the place. Everyone danced (8 months to 80 years old).
Spencer is a professional in every aspect of his business, preparation, support for the day, and execution.

Five stars are not enough.
