Ryan, Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job at our wedding reception last 4.27.2013 at Eagle's Nest Clubhouse!!!
Ryan was so professional and was very helpful from start to finish. He never lost the professionalism and helpfulness even after all payments have been made, unlike other vendors. Ryan's excellent services are so afforadable, I could not believe. He will not try to upsell you or try to deceive you. What you see is what you get! When we were pricing out and looking for a dj, Ryan proved to be the most reasonable with the most to offer. His packages included A LOT and were priced reasonably.
Thank you for making our wedding reception so memorable and for helping us out with so much even if it was not really technically part of your job. Everyone had a great time at the reception -- young and old!
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS! WE WILL DEFINITELY RECOMMEND YOU TO EVERYONE!
One word to describe DJ Tempoe: AWESOME!! Ryan made our wedding day so special and memorable. Many of our guests came to us to let us know how much they enjoyed the evening and the music that was played.
He did a great job in our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception which are in 3 different places within the hotel. Transitions between the venues were seemless as he already pre-setup the equipments at the different places before everything begins.
From the moment we met till the wedding day, he is very organized and knows exactly what to do! He played all the songs that we discussed and created a fun atmosphere the entire evening particularly when the dance floor was opened. The songs selection kept the guests dancing for the entire hour.
Also, he was closely involved in the planning phases of the wedding. He proactively initiated meetings to go over timeline and details so that everything is well coordinated.
We might not have such a wonderful evening without DJ Tempoe and would definitely recommend him to anyone out there looking for a DJ!
Ryan (DJ Tempo) did a FANTASTIC job at our wedding. He is a professional who was not only the DJ at our wedding, but when asked to coordinate the music at our ceremony at the last minute, he came through perfectly.
Ryan was able to help us customize the music for our first dance which I appreciated so very much. He arrived on time and was well prepared with the music from our playlist. Ryan ensured that the night's festivities moved along timely and was also able to instantly play any special requested music which our guests absolutely loved. I received many compliments on Ryan's music variety, awesome set up, and up lighting which gave the room that extra touch. The guests were also very impressed with Ryan's smoke machine, excellent ambiance.
I will definitely be using DJ Tempoe for future events. I honestly don't generally post any reviews, but I knew I had to recommend Ryan. He is a genuine, easy going guy who clearly enjoys what he does and will ensure your guests have the time of their lives.
Thank you Ryan for helping us enjoy our special day. Amazing job!!!!
Wedding at Ponte Winery
Ryan was such a great and affordable find for my wedding! From the moment that I first contacted him to the night of the event, he had me feeling like he had everything under control! Not once did I ever worry about him and as a Bride with a million and one things to do to plan a wedding, that's something that I truly am thankful for. I honestly feel that he should be charging more! He's that good! I definitely recommend him to anyone. I made some very last minute changes to my timeline. I am talking about changes at midnight the night before my wedding...and without a problem he made all the adjustments. I even made some last minute changes the day off...seconds before I wanted them to happen and with a smile he would say, ok lets do it.
Just the weekend before our wedding we went to the venue and saw him setting up for another event. He was extremely early and already dressed looking sharp and ready to go! Once again reassuring me that we made an excellent choice. :]
I can not thank you enough Ryan! You made our wedding night truly special. And kept the dance floor full the entire night. All of my guest had such a great time in large thanks to you! Your search for a great DJ ends here!
DJ Tempoe is a fantastic DJ. I would recommend him for any wedding or event. He is punctual, professional, and knows how to communicate to ensure everything runs smooth for the evening. The wedding requested 90% middle eastern music and he was fully capable of playing the best arabic music. All the guest were out of their seats and dancing the entire evening.
He also served as Master Of Ceremonies and did great. His introductions and ability to amp the guest up, I will definitely hire him again. He is worth it!
Ryan (DJ Tempoe) was not only a great DJ he was great to work with. The thing I appreciated most about Ryan was that he was extremely prompt and professional in his correspondence with me. I would send him an e-mail, and within 24 hours I would receive a response. He was referred to us by my friend who he DJ'd for and she had the same positive comments about him. I spoke with him over the phone a few days before the wedding about the time schedule and he was extremely flexible and professional. We had a wedding with over 400 guests and I was concerned that the sound would not carry throughout the room, but Ryan assured me his equipment was plenty and even brought additional equipment (speakers) to ensure that the sound was clear that night. Compared to other DJ's his fees were extremely low! A great person to work with and highly recommend his services.
Couldn't find a better dj Ryan was amazing very professional. And for the price he charges there's no other place you will find such a great dj. Definitely recommend him for any event and I am sure we will be using him for any event we have.
Ryan (DJ Tempoe) did an AMAZING and WONDERFUL job at our wedding receptiion. Not only is he kind and polite he is super professional and an OUTSTANDING DJ. We had many compliments from our guests about how great he was.
He played all the songs on our list and did a fantastic job. He was also our Master of Ceremonies and was great at handling the impromptu stuff such as having to make last minute changes because our ring bearer and flower girl were not going to be announced and for having to play additional songs for our cake cutting as it took longer for us to get to the actual cake cutting due to photographs, etc. and the song we selected was over by the time we were cutting and serving the cake and he just played another song that was great. He also worked with our photographer and the restaurant and kept us on schedule.
His turn table skills also rocked the house. I wanted a "surprise" mix/mash up for the father daughter dance. He took my two songs and totally pulled off the surprise and we started out with very slow country song and then he made it seem like the record skipped and we busted into Gangnum Style. It was so awesome. No one knew and all of our guests thought there was really something wrong! Exactly what I wanted!
In addition to great work I can NOT begin to tell you how RIDICULOUSLY reasonable his rates are! He's insured and our price included his time to set up and shut down. I highly recommend DJ Tempoe and will definitely use him again if we ever have a need!
Ryan is a rare gem in a field of DJs listing their services on craigslist. During our wedding, he not only provided DJ and MC services, but since we were so busy, he also kept track of our timeline, constantly checking with us, making sure we are ready for the day's events; in other words he was sort of like a mini-wedding coordinator.
His demeanor is pleasant, easy to work with, communicates promptly to emails, is affordable and humble. Our wedding guests commented that our DJ was excellent. We are very lucky and glad to have him as part of our wedding.
Ryan is a great wedding emcee and DJ. My husband and I hired Ryan as a gift for a special person in our lives who got married on 11-16-12. We found him to be a super organized professional who responds promptly to emails and voice mails. He has an extensive, eclectic play list, which can be tailored to each event. His price was reasonable and he worked within our budget. Truly a delightful person and experience.
At the event last Friday we loved how easily he transitioned through the various stages of the wedding and reception and his music mix was spot on for the mixed ages and mixed cultures. I think everyone felt very comfortable and had a great time. I know I really enjoyed dancing to his music. But the best thing about Ryan is that he is an inclusive, approachable, calm professional who does everything he can to make your event FUN FOR EVERYONE and not stressful for the bride and groom. What more could anyone want?
If I could give more than 5 Stars I would!
RYAN AKA Dj Tempoe !! Wow where do I even start?? My wedding was November 9th and he did such an AMAZING job. Everyone at my wedding LOVED his DJ style. He was able to get the young, the middle aged, and the old all on the dance floor dancing their hearts out. My wedding was very multicultural but he made everyone come together soo beautifully.
He is so patient as well. There were some times during the wedding when I needed some stuff to be changed at the reception abruptly, but he just went with the flow and made my wedding day such a beautiful day. If you’re looking for a DJ for the money and more importantly for an excellent, professional and outstanding job THIS IS THE GUY FOR YOU!!.
He worked with my fiancé and I months before the wedding and somehow he put together such a wonderful play list for us. People were on the dance floor the entire night. Our reception was out of this world and I know that him being our DJ played a HUGE role.
RYAN AKA Dj TEMPOE – YOU’RE THE BEST. I would hire him again for any future get-togethers that I may have.
I cannot say enough good things about Ryan (DJ Tempoe). He was the DJ and MC for my wedding reception on 10/25/12, and he was amazing! From the beginning, when we first met with him up until the wedding day, he was organized, responsive, polite, helpful, and super professional. He gave us an extremely useful sample timeline for the evening which we worked through with him via email. He was always very flexible as many changes were made to the timeline in the month leading up to the wedding. He sent us tons of sample playlists and sample songs for different events (father-daughter dance, etc.). Everything went exactly as planned during the reception, from the introductions and the slideshow to the music. The music he played could not have been better. It was exactly what we were hoping for. We gave him a rough idea of the type of music and artists we wanted played and we could not have been happier with his selections. We had a small number of attendees, but we had people dancing until the last song ended! Finally, his rates were extremely reasonable. We received many compliments on the reception, and I have had friends ask about DJ Tempoe for their own upcoming weddings!
DJ Tempoe (Ryan) was a great DJ for our wedding. We could not ask for a better DJ. He is professional, organized , punctual, humble , loves what he does and shows, works with your budget, and is just so talented!
Brides, I was very picky when it came to all my vendors but when I met Ryan I got a great vibe and I was right. He will email/text/call you asap and he just works with you with whatever you need.
Definitely book DJ Tempoe, you won't regret it;)
Ryan was great! He was well organized, approachable and such a genuine and kind man. We were so lucky to find him and he really made a wedding night what we imagined it to be. We did not have a coordinator for the wedding so he also helped in that manner too. What a great bonus! :) We will always use him for future events and even recommend him to all of our friends. Thanks Ryan
My favorite DJ, he had everyone dancing all night, made great announcements, beautiful lighting as well.
I am an event coordinator. All I can say is that he is the best DJ I've ever had at any of my events! very professional, his equipment is top of the line. He was also the MC and did great! I am very pleased with his service. Thanks Rian!
DJ Tempoe did an amazing job at our wedding, couldn't be happier! Thanks
DJ Tempoe did an amazing job before and during our wedding day. He was extremely organized, flexible, communicative, and relaxed during the planning process. DJ Tempoe will help you organize your wedding party timeline so nothing is left to chance. He has the biggest collection of music I have ever seen and he was able to get everybody on the dance floor! This guy is the epitome of professionalism and his rates are extremely competitive. I recommended him to a friend who ended up using him for her wedding also, and loved it. I strongly recommend DJ Tempoe - he rocks!
Ryan was the best DJ ever!!! Very polite, prepared, knows how to handle things & good price! :) highly recommended!
We would like to see him again soon! Thanks man!
DJ Tempoe is the Best!!!!
I found him on Yelp, with nothing but priases being said about him. From the first meeting with him, I knew this was my guy. He is polite, very affordable, creative, and accomodating. I have already recommeded him to my friends.
All the feedback from the guests as my wedding was, " That DJ was AWESOME!"
If you are in the market for a DJ, no matter what the occasion, make DJ Tempoe you first call.
You won't be disappointed.
I would strongly recommend Ryan to any event your having. He was the DJ for my wedding and we couldn't have been happier. He was on time, helped out in putting together a timeline for our day, and played what we wanted. If changes needed to be made to anything he was very prompt in returning my emails. Thumbs up to Ryan thanks for your services once again.
DJ Tempo did our wedding. He was a wonderful DJ...He was very helpful from the first phone call to the end of the wedding day. I was very impressed by his professionalism. He made sure to lay out exactly what he had to offer and was very easy to work with. He found every song we wanted...and even help me do a special live performance at the reception. All in all DJ Tempo offers more than fair pricing, great equipment, a great attitude, and a great professional job. I would recommend him to anyone.
My husband and I were a DIY couple. We had 2 years to plan our wedding so we figured we had the time and we should probably save some money. The only problem with not hiring a wedding planner was that we had to do our research on our vendors. My husband was in charge of hiring our DJ/MC. He did the research online and met with various DJs, but they were either too expensive, it was hard to get a hold of them, or we simply didn't like them....all until he met Ryan from DJ Tempoe. Ryan was down to earth and listened to our requests and was extremely affordable. You just get a good vibe from the guy right away. We thought this might be too good to be true. We are happy to report that Ryan was the BEST VENDOR we had, and we had some pretty amazing vendors. Ryan really listened to all of our requests for songs, worked with our day of the wedding coordinators, and modified our timeline as needed. We threw some "secret" dances in, had extra speeches, people requested songs...didn't phase him. He kept the dancing going all night long and we got so many complements on how much fun our wedding was. Needless to say that many of our friends have already asked for Ryan's information. He even came out to meet with us at our venue a few months before our wedding because he had never been there and wanted to show us what the uplighting would look like. Such a nice guy, such an honest vendor. No games. Ryan is simply one of those vendors you want to work with, and he responds to emails almost immediately. we are recommending him to all of our friends. Thank you DJ Tempoe!
Ryan's prices are very reasonable - he offers projector services and up-lighting also. He was quick to respond to my emails, even emailing me when he was out of the country to tell me so. He was very professional. He had different song lists to help us choose songs for the wedding. He had song choices for things we didn't even think about like cake cutting. He drove all the way to Monrovia to meet with us at the hotel to discuss the layout of the reception. He played all the music we wanted and none of what we didn't. He has a good voice for MCing but was not overly talkative. He was nice to all my guests and did his best to accomodate their requests. The uplighting was perfect and the slideshow went smoothly. Everyone at the wedding had a great time. The dance floor was never empty. Thanks Ryan!!!
LOOK NO FURTHER FOR A DJ! Seriously, DJ Tempoe rocks the house!! He DJ our wedding on July 28, 2012 and we could have not asked for more. We had very specific song selections to be played during the ceremony and throughout the night and he did not skip a beat. His library of music is vast, so he'll have the tunes to get all of your wedding guests out on the dance floor at some point in the evening. He even brought a projector and screen to run our looping slide-show, along with extra lighting. He was a big part in making our day even more special. AGAIN LOOK NO FURTHER! Kevin and Kim Fredericks
We were thrilled to find a young, hip DJ that’s also extremely professional and organized, and at a very reasonable price. He’s sweet and enthuastic without being corny, which is especially important in an MC. He understood our taste in music and played everything we asked for. He was very impressive, I’d highly recommend him in a heartbeat – we were lucky to find him! I would give him more stars on value if i could, his price is so reasonable considering how great he is!
Snag this DJ immediately!
DJ Tempoe seriously wowed us. Everyone -- and I mean EVERYONE -- commented on the ridiculously fun, excellent music selection the next day, and my parents-in-law are still talking about it weeks later (and they are a tough cookies when it comes to music!).
As a Mexican girl marrying a white guy, I was concerned that we would only have half of the people on the dance floor, depending on the music. Nope, the dance floor was full the ENTIRE time, from my very traditional white parent in laws, to my cooky salsa-dancing uncles, to our younger Gaga-dancing friends. He just knew how to keep the party going!
DJ Tempo was the backbone of the party, from the ceremony through the end of the reception -- keeping a perfect rhythm of events throughout the night. He was polite, professional, strong, and just had the warmest smile and disposition.
Every bride needs peace of mind going into their wedding day knowing they'll be in good hands and that their party is going to ROCK. That's the DJ Tempoe brings to the table!
Outstanding!!!!!!! Thank you!
When my husband Chris and I were looking for a DJ for our wedding at Serra Plaza in San Juan Capistrano, we searched on the various wedding websites and DJ Tempoe came up. After reading his reviews, I went on his website and contacted him. Ryan immediately got back to me and provided me with a quote. We decided to trust all of his rave reviews and we booked his services for our ceremony as well as our reception.
Let me just say that Ryan was by far the best vendor we had at our wedding. He is so organized, professional, has an endless music selection and is such a nice guy! Our guests and family members (some who never dance) were on the dance floor the entire night. They are still raving about our DJ. He also was a great MC and kept things moving along with the father-daughter dance, speeches, cake cutting, etc. If you take anything from this review, know that hiring Ryan as your DJ for your wedding or event will not be a mistake and will be money well spent!
Ryan was a lot of fun to work with! His services are very affordable, but don't let that fool you, his professionalism mirrors that to those offered by DJs 2-3x in price! Not only does he offer DJ services, but he also has other equipment that can be used for the wedding as well (uplights to set the mood of the venue, a screen and projector for a picture slideshow, dancefloor lights to set the party atmosphere, etc).
A fear of mine was that we would have an empty dancefloor because guests are reluctant/embarassed to go up, but was I wrong! Ryan proactively selected songs that were right for the crowd to get their bums off their chairs and everyone was dancing the night away and having a good time. I had a relatively small wedding with about 85 guests in total, and at least 90% of them were dancing! Many complimented on the whole event and had said that it was one of the best weddings they've been to.
Thank you Ryan for setting the mood to create a wonderful atmosphere and experience for everyone at the...
DJ Tempo did our wedding on May 5th and did an Amazing Job!!!! He kept the party going and the Mexicans dancing and happy!!!!
I was a little concerned about not having a Spanish Speaking DJ at my Cinco de Mayo Wedding BUT Ryan really came thru and brought a Spanish speaking assistant to accommodate all of my requests.
He was professional and organized from our first meeting and kept that professionalism til our big day. He was always reassuring and on top of it, so I knew that was one less thing to worry about the day of. I highly recommend him.
Thank you DJ...
I don't usually write reviews but when you get a DJ like mine you just have too lol ...you know if i could give him 10+ stars i would :) . Ryan Ryan Ryan he's such a wondering DJ he have helped me so so so much through out my wedding and on my wedding day not only that he was my DJ he was my wedding coordinator which to me i find it an A++++ .He saved me from killing everybody lol. He is super organized, very friendly and extremely helpful. he turned my reception into a little night club lol I've got so many compliment from my guests telling me that they love him and they had so much fun dancing . My only advice to you is BOOK HIM && BOOK HIM NOW because if u don't u'll regret it !!!!!x10
Ryan we love you so much and thank you for everything you've done for us && best believe that We'll see you soon :) hihihi
P.s && for whoever booked him next please be nice to him and give him a hug for me :)
Ryan was the DJ at our wedding and he was perfect!
A DJ can really ruin a wedding if he doesn't do a good job, but, even though we weren't the easiest couple to work with (giving him the list of songs we wanted him to play on the MORNING of the wedding) , Ryan did a GREAT job. We noticed weeks before the wedding how super flexible he is. There were a couple of things in our timeline that changed during our wedding, but he was fine with everything and even helped our best man with the powerpoint he needed for his speech. The party was shorter than was originally planned, but DJ Tempoe managed to play the perfect songs throughout.
We HIGHLY recommend hiring Ryan as the DJ for whatever event it is you are having. Not only does he do an amazing job, he is a bargain!
he did amazing! i couldnt of asked for a better DJ! on time, respectable, dressed nice, played great music all threw the night! all my guest were very pleased overall. i wouldnt of got all those compliments on my wedding if it wasnt for his help. great guy and very reliable! if i ever need a dj or anyone personally ever needs a dj i would recommend him for sure 100%. i already started!
When my fiancé proposed on January 28, 2010 I immediately started planning our special day. When it came to selecting a DJ, I knew exactly what I wanted - someone professional, affordable, and with exceptional skills. A good DJ has a keen sense of intuition, he knows all the greatest hits and can make a diverse play list (as ours) blend so nicely that it will capture anyone and everyone to get on the dance floor....and Ryan, DJ Tempo did exactly at our wedding this past Friday. He was hands down the best!! Our play list consisted of classic rock, latest hits, 80s flashbacks, salsa, and Irish rock. He kept everyone dancing all night. He did a great job keeping the timeline of events going without anyone realizing that there was one. The bridal introduction was upbeat and our first dance went off without a hitch. He was on point with all the songs that we requested for the special events like the father/daughter & mother/son dance, pie cutting ceremony and bouquet/carter toss. We had a group photo as well and he pleasantly surprised us by playing one of our favorite songs "Friends in Low places" by Gath Brooks. We requested for it to be played at some point in the night, but when he played it for our group photo it was just perfect. We were all singing along, it was awesome!
I can go on and on how important it is when selecting the right DJ, so good luck finding the perfect one. I know I did and I'm very grateful.
I would be baffled if anyone would give Ryan anything short of 5 stars. He was an amazing DJ, and a great person. He was quick with his responses before our wedding, well dressed and kind on the day of the event, and executed our wishes perfectly...and he was a fraction of the cost of other DJs.
I can't say enough about how impressed I was about his level of expertise and professionalism. I will call him first whenever I am in need of a DJ for an event. If he isn't available, then the second call I am going to make will be whoever Ryan recommends to me.
I have never written a review on this site before, but I think Ryan deserves all the praise he can get for making our wedding day that much more special. Ryan, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You are the best.
We feel very fortunate to have had Ryan, DJ Tempo cover our wedding day music.
He truly did a wonderful job for our wedding on March 11th, 2012
From the very beginning to the end, this guy knows his stuff!! He has a very large music data base to fit anyone's music style. Ryan made it very easy for us and took the stress out of our music planning by sending us a timeline layout for specific songs we wanted played during our wedding. We appreciate that he payed special attention to details and types of music we wanted on our day...Ryan is very professional, prompt, and a true gentleman. We highly recommend him for any DJ needs!
Rose and Max Wallis
AMAZING!!!!! Dj Tempoe was amazing! anything we asked for he had!! we wanted a mix of arabic & hip hop. He had a huge selection and put together an amazing play list for us we told him what we liked he did all the work! He also played music videos to go along with all the songs every one loved it!!! He was very professional and did every thing he promised. I highly recommend him!!!! I would hire him again in a second!!!! He is also really great in price!! worth every penny!!!
Ryan aka DJ Tempoe is amazing! Ryan was the DJ at my wedding reception and did an outstanding job! He was very professional and always easy to get a hold of.
He got everyone up and dancing the whole time. Our dance floor was never empty! He was very observant as to what people liked and didn't like and played songs accordingly. We had a very diverse crowd and he was able to keep everyone happy from young to old. He is an expert at what he does and a true professional.
I got so many compliments from our guests about the DJ! We got his music video package and everyone loved that as well! He had very reasonable prices, so book him while you can!
If I ever need a DJ again... I'm calling DJ Tempoe!
Out of all the vendors that we had to work with Ryan was hands down the best. Whether it was about a time to meet or to change or add a song his replies were usually waiting in my inbox within 24 hours or less. Every interaction was pleasant and we genuinely had no worries when it came to our big day.
He kept everything moving incredibly smooth and had everyone in the room shaking it at one point in the evening. We really couldn't ask for anything more from a professional DJ. We highly recommend DJ Tempoe for any event that you need an awesome DJ whom you can tell really enjoys his work.
So I just got married 2 weeks ago now and what an amazing day we had.
One of the best decisions we made, was hiring Ryan! He was a gem from the beginning to the end.
At our first meeting with him, my now husband ;-) and I liked him right away. Nothing was a problem for him. He was friendly, easy to talk too and really wanted our wedding day to be the way we wanted it. We felt like we had known him forever.
And he was open to us giving him a play list too and accommodated every request we made.
One of my main things that made a Ryan a must for our event is his level of communication! He responded to EVERY SINGLE email I sent immediately and always in a timely fashion and as the bride, you really need that :-). In LA people sometime take a while to get back to you but Ryan was fantastic at that. Really put my mind at ease.
So we could relax knowing he would be there and be on it.
He arrived early for our wedding day and gave us lights and projections all included in our package which was very, very reasonable and within our budget as we had spent a lot already on the day. Our wedding guests loved him and he knew exactly what to play if there was a lull in the night.
The dance floor stayed packed!
He charming, unassuming, affable, a gentleman and very humble and just a joy to have around.
We are planning a summer barbecue and Ryan is our guy.
Do not look any further, especially for your wedding day. We got VERY lucky finding him on 'Projectwedding.com'.
This is the DJ that you want.
Thank you a million times over Ryan.
Awesome DJ. Showed up on time and very professional. Played a great selection of music. We've tried other DJ's and Ryan of DJ Tempoe is by far the best we've ever had DJ'ing our parties. Needless to say we'll be calling Ryan for all of our parties from now on. Thanks Ryan for making our party such a success!
Ryan, was very professional and has an exelllent unlimited music list. Ryan made our wedding reception fun and exciting for everyone that attended. I highly recomend him to everyone looking for a DJ. He was flexible with his prices and well worth more than what we paid.
Thanks Again Ryan I'm sure you'll have great success!!!!!
all i can say is, he made our reception the best it could have been! he was so polite and preofessional from our first meeting to the end of our reception!! His prices are very reasonable especially for as great as he is!
DJ Tempoe (Ryan) was incredible. He did the music for our wedding 3 months ago in Long Beach, Califonia. He was very easy going, organized, on time and the music selection he provided was excellent!! First of all, the quality of his equipment is top notch, he's also got the lights!! We had a music playlist that we put together - we gave it to him and he mixed it in with his own music. I couldn't have wished for a better DJ. My partner loved it too!!! We had an amazing wedding - the romantic side and the dance fun side! I recommend him!
What can I say except AWESOME! He is so great. Very professional, affordable and knows what he is doing. The night went so smoothly, we gave him a timeline to follow and song requests and he did not disappoint. He is so good at what he does and so affordable. Definitely recommend him and will be using him in the future for any other occassions. He mainly specializes in weddings and has been doing them for over 6 years now so he has experience.
I first found Ryan on craigslist, and then i immediatly started checking review boards, his cost was great..I though to good to be true, but i read the reviews and couldn't believe it. I met with him and our mind was quickly put at ease when he discussed the way he DJ's and whatever we want to play, he will play it so everyone loves it. He is extremly nice, and very professional. On the wedding day things fell a bit behind scheduale and he was on top of it, he simply waited for us to let him know if we were ready to move onto the next thing, and he made it happen. We requested a few funny songs we wanted to play, becuase we love them, and why not have them randomly played on our happiest day-he totally worked them into his set with no issue. I only comunicated a few times, and never had any issues. He totally understood what we wanted and had no problems. Even when about 30 minutes before it ended and there was only 5 of us there, he kept on playing-we really loved that he kept the same tempo all day. Very happy with my craigslist find.
Had a great playlist already created. Worked very professionally, everybody loved him, and his music. We had a great party and it was mainly because of him.
What can I say that has not already been said? Ryan is amazing and so professional. I originally found him on Yelp and decided to give him a try. Right away I was impressed with his professionalism, flexibility, and promptness in getting back to me. Every step of the way, if I had concerns, as often brides do, he was there to reassure me and comply with my demands. He is an excellent communicator.
Ryan assisted me with creating a timeline for the day, which I had no idea how to go about doing so! He was open to any suggestions that I had. I wanted to play the "newly Wed game" or the "shoe game" as most call it and he was able to do that for me exactly how I wanted it.
Did I mention he was flexible??? On the day of we had a couple of issues with the timeline and he was able to accommodate us and made it seem like it was all apart of the plan. As for the music selection, I gave him a list and told him a few were must plays and the rest were a guideline. He did not disappoint and played the music appropriately throughout the night.. ie, dinner, cake cutting, special dance songs, and uptempo music to get everyone on the dance floor.
Ryan also had some pretty cool dance lighting (no uplights, but still very cool all the same...). He also had a projector that played our slideshow during cocktail hour and music videos during the entire night... an inexpensive addon that made the night that much more special.
Ryan is a great DJ and MC. He is a rising star and more than worth the amazing price he gives you. I'm sure his price is rising as his notoriety is as well, so book him while you can to get a steal of a deal. He is worth the money and I felt like he deserved way more than he asked for (tip him accordingly folks!)
Without DJ Tempoe (Ryan Girgis) my wedding would not have been as awesome as it was! Thanks Ryan for helping make my wedding perfect!
Ryan is just an amazing D.J.! I have been at two weddings where he was the DJ. The first was at my god-daughter's wedding and the second was for my own daughter's wedding.
He always plays the right thing. He gets people up an dancing, has games to amuse the crowd if you want them. A wide variety of music to please any crowd.
His prices are amazing and the service is unbelievable!
You really can't go wrong if you are lucky enough that he has your date free!
I wish there were more stars. Ryan is a great DJ. He not only takes the time to get to know your personal preferences, but his breadth of musical knowledge is such that if you do not know what songs you want, he can supply you with a plethora of options.
My husband and I got married on August 27, 2011. We had a wide range of people who were attending our wedding and ceremony, from age 20 to age 70. Everyone loved the music.
When you have an event, people may not remember the food, but they will absolutely remember the music. Songs have such a special place in everyones life.
If you would like to have a memorable event, please do yourself a HUGE favor and call Ryan and relax knowing that you are in good hands. He is patient, flexible and above all else professional to the most superlative degree.
DJ Tempoe was great for us. He made himself very available for us all the way leading up to our wedding. He is personable and very knowledgeable about the type of music that will keep the party going.
We loved him and we would recommend him to all of our friends.
Ryan is such a nice guy! We met with him several months prior and he was so friendly and professional. I didn't have a lot of "must have" songs, but I did have a "do not play" list. :) I told him the rest was up to him. He was quick with responding to emails and was courteous when I made some very last minute changes. He showed up on time and did a fantastic job. I had a small wedding and my biggest fear was that the dance floor would be empty, but he made sure everyone was up and dancing. The dance floor was never bare and everyone danced the night away. I am still getting compliments on how much fun my wedding was and people keep telling me they want to do it again! The night was great and Ryan had a huge role in that! I highly recommend him!
DJ Tempo....Ryan Girgis....AMAZING DJ! Thank you thank you thank you!! You made the reception so successful! Everyone loved the music and the dance floor was filled all evening. I never stopped dancing! Totally worked with my budget and I will tell everyone I know to use him!
Five stars all the way!!! My husband and I loved Ryan Girgis, DJ Tempoe. My husband was so impressed by his professionalism, flexibility, and his overall personality that he ended up giving him an extra tip! =P Ryan was our favorite vendor. We HIGHLY recommend him.
I was referred to DJ Tempoe/Ryan from fellow a friend. When I first met up with him in our initial meeting, he was on time, friendly, easy-going and so flexible.
Every time I sent him my long detailed song lists, do not play lists, or any email correspondence, he always responded quickly and professionally.
Our guests, friends, and family had so much fun at our reception. He played a lot of the songs on my song list and everyone had so much fun because of DJ Tempoe. He has a wide variety of different types of song selections - from country to hip hop to pop to salsa/latin, etc.
Our reception schedule didn't go as planned and we had to skip something but that didn't phase Ryan. He was so flexible and went with the flow of the evening. He even did our slideshow on his mac since my husband created the slideshow on a mac and wasn't sure if it could be played on the projector/DVD.
And, his prices were awesome - especially compared to other DJ's we inquired. Hurry and book him for your event before his prices go up! At the time we booked, he did not offer uplighting (but have other dance lights).
Ryan/DJ Tempoe - thank you for doing such a great job at our wedding!
AMAZING !!!! After looking around on craigslist, the yellow pages, through friend and family.. we came across DJ TEMPOE.. and we got LUCKY!!!! It was our wedding, the most important day in our lives, and my husband and I feel sooooooooo grateful !!! He had an amazing wedding schedule that he emailed to us, we were able to edit it and email it back to him with the songs we wanted for our event. We kept changing our song choices and RYAN was amazing at keeping up with us. We couldnt have found a better DJ. He was on time. Professional. Kind. Has amazing music. He always answered my calls and emails. All of our family and friends were impressed !!! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM !!!
He was great and very professional. First time my husband and I met with him he showed us a spreadsheet sheet and all of the services he has along with sample play lists and a quick look at all of the music he has. One of my favorite things was that he plays the video with the song which we thought was great. Everyone liked his choice of music, our wedding would have not been fun without him. I recommend him to everyone :)
DJ Tempoe is an amazing wedding DJ. He kept us on schedule without letting the party die down. He offered us a package that included a projector screen that played music videos throughout the night and a great light show. The played all the music we requested and never ran out of songs. We are a group that likes to party and he sure brought the party. He is so easy to work with and is very versatile. We are hiring him for all our events from this point on.
DJ Tempoe was the DJ for our wedding last September! He played fantastic music the entire night, did a great job announcing everything and his setup was perfect! He did a fabulous job and I recommend him to all of the newly engaged couples looking for a DJ at their wedding! :D
Ryan (DJ Tempoe) was fabolous on our wedding. My guest and my coordinator has complimented his work numerous times. He played exaclty what we wanted and did not skip a beat. Ryan is very reasonable in price and I would recommend him for any occasion. He is such a sweetheart and is very flexible. It's unheard of that so many people complimented on the DJ at a wedding. Furthermore, Ryan did not play any of the corny wedding music that you would expect. Great song selection, great personality and a GREAT MC. Thanks Ryan for making our day more special!
Just wanted to let everyone know if you are in need of a DJ. I highly recommend DJ Tempoe. We used him for our wedding and he is awesome. Very professional, great rates and an all around upstanding guy. Check him out, he is a great DJ.
It didn't really seem like he knew what to do with a country wedding, but everything did come out ok. There was a bit of lag time on the toasts and things like that, but, again, it all turned out ok. You can't beat the rates, he was abuot $100 lower than the lowest quote I got. I imagine he would be perfect in a genre he is more comfortable with. I would use him again, just maybe not for a country wedding.
OMG such a GREAT DJ he played great music I never dance and I danced all night i will recomend him to others.
"DJ Tempoe did a great job! He was very professional and spun only the music we wanted. I had a good feeling about DJ Tempoe the first time I met him and my intuitions couldn't have been more on the money. Our wedding was all we dreamed it would be and more, DJ Tempoe played a big role in that! If you want your event to rock,, you need to hire this man! Thanks Tempoe!"
"DJ Tempoe rocked the place at our wedding held at the Belamar Hotel in Manhattan Beach. It wasn't an easy gig by any means; it was only a small party (40) with guests of varying age groups. However DJ Tempoe managed to keep the dancefloor busy at all times. Everyone commented on how much they liked the DJ, from my 20-something friends to my 70 year old Grandmother! DJ Tempoe’s mix of upbeat dance tracks and party classics got everyone on their feet and dancing to the beat! When things looked like they were cooling off DJ Tempoe would initiate a Conger line or some other fun interaction to keep the energy levels high. In addition to his great music and fantastic light show, DJ Tempoe also handled all the MCing duties for us and effortlessly guided us through the evening’s events without a hitch. I would highly recommend DJ Tempoe for any wedding party due to his excellent DJ skills, state-of-the-art light and sound equipment and his very personable manner.Thanks DJ Tempoe!
"Dear DJ Tempoe,
You had a huge contribution in making our most memorable day unforgettable. From the moment we had our first conversation on the phone, I knew that you were the one that I wanted to be our wedding DJ/MC ! Not only were you very organized and professional from beginning to end, but also had a huge impact on how exceptionally well our ceremony and reception went. We thank you for making that extra effort in presenting our photo montage in which you helped produce. That was priceless. Everyone was impressed by your performance in music and the way you conducted the entire event. We have received many compliments on "our wedding DJ" and are very proud to have had you be a part of our most unforgettable day. Thank you so much for your accuracy and ability to multi-task as we had many intricate details that were incorporated during our special day. Your positive energy exuded throughout the night. You truly have proven that you are the best at what you do!"
"How do I even begin giving accolades to one of the most professional and talented DJ's I have ever worked with? DJ Tempoe was brilliant. I hired him for a corporate event and he was nothing short of amazing. From the music he played to his exceptional skills as an MC, DJ Tempoe took control of the microphone and kept the event going at the perfect pace. I would recommend him to anyone. Plus he was extremely helpful in setting up some other AV equipment that we had...to the point of lending me a power strip. Professionalism, talent, and some great groove..DJ Tempoe has it all."
"He was so amazing!! In our eyes the dj is the most important part of the reception and dj Tempoe met our standards. He really listened to our preferences in the interview and applied them to the reception; we were impressed by his choices for the dinner music. DJ Tempoe really read the crowd and the dance floor was never empty (I wasn't the only one there who said that)! His instructions and patience while arranging our wedding party pre-introductions was flawless and the entire group loved him. My mother made the cake and while she was setting up DJ Tempoe came over and offered to help in any way. She thought he was the manager of the venue. When he said he was the DJ, she was very surprised, since normally the DJ would never even talk to the other vendors at the wedding. He is incredibly talented and very comfortable in his career choice. He even got my grandmother dancing which surprised my entire family, she looked 20 years younger! I am forever thankful I made the choice to hire him, I feel with anyone else it never would have been the perfect night."
Ryan (DJ Tempoe) is truly a great and professional DJ. We (dKweddings.net) have been to tons of weddings and we have seen many DJ's. There is no DJ that we would recommend more than Ryan (DJ Tempoe). Ryan has a good feel for what type of music will bring the guests out to the dance floor, and he does an excellent job at it. He listens to his clients and makes sure he does EVERYTHING the way they request. The DJ is a vital part of a wedding, and we stand by his work 100%.

As a wedding coordinator, I am always searching for the best vendors to build lasting relationships with.
I spoke to Ryan prior to the wedding to confirm and then reconfirm our setup/start times. He always addressed my questions and concerns with quick responses. Ryan had shown up the venue, in a timely manner, set up his station and was ready to go earlier than expected!
We went over the timeline a few times, however - several things needed to be changed due to a late arrival of the bride and groom. Ryan was able to work with me to address all the key points of the reception without becoming overwhelmed or frustrated. When asked to do something at the 'drop of a hat' he is able to do it!
When searching for a DJ/MC I always suggest finding someone who can 'pull it together' when there's an issue (say with another vendor, who disappears out of the blue - i.e. the photobooth company we worked with) and who is confident in what he/she does. Ryan embodies both these qualities!
Ryan was a pleasure to work with and hopefully we'll get to work with each other more in...
A fantastic Dj, professional and person. Amazing mixing, song selection, service and price. Hands down the best Dj for any occasion. I strongly endorse Dj Tempoe.
As a professional wedding photographer I work alongside DJ's at every wedding. After working with DJ Tempoe I now have a new standard! DJ Tempoe is an amazing DJ who always kept the guests involved and was a pleasure to work with! He is very talented and has a great lighting setup! I always recommend him to my clients and look forward to working with him again!
We've done close to 50 Weddings to date (as of August 2010), and we've seen a lot of great DJ's. But one DJ that we always highly recommend is DJ Tempoe (Ryan Girgis). He's an awesome DJ that's very professional but at the same time he knows how to really chill and groove to get all the guests on the dance floor! We've worked with him on 3 weddings and will be working with him in an upcoming wedding. Another great thing is, he charges almost next to nothing (seriously!); for the quality of work he can provide. If you need a DJ, never hesistate to contract DJ Tempoe. We totally recommend him!
