Pat and Jordyn’s WeddingWire Review:
“For us music was one of the most important aspects of our wedding. Both my husband and I love music and love what it can do to a party. It single handedly is able to set the tone of the night. Our experience with DJ Dayve was amazing! From the start to finish his was service was nothing short of perfect. He is professional, organized and extremely responsive. From ceremony to cocktail hour to reception to dance party he created the perfect atmosphere for myself, my husband and all guest (of all ages). We were extremely specific with what we wanted and Dj Dayve nailed it! The entire night our guest kept coming up to us asking for our playlist. I highly recommend Dj Dayve for any and every event! We will forever thank him for playing such and important and amazing role in the best day of our lives!”

“Dave was great to work with. He is very organized, on top of his to do’s, helpful in crafting the timeline and working with the planners. Even better, his music selection is on point. Everyone was dancing the entire wedding night, from family favorites, high school classics, to a raging after-party with house music. Dave also stepped in in the last week to provide mics for the actual service, since we forgot we needed them on the beach. Very professional. Highly recommend!!”

“DJ Dayve took requests for playlists, equipment, and extra lighting changes right up to the last minute keeping our stress level at zero. He worked seamlessly with all of the rest of our vendors ensuring transitions from stage to stage of the wedding. He even caught a sound issue (not his own making) during the start of the ceremony and solved it within a split second without anyone other than vendors noticing. Our guests had many complements about the event, but Dayve’s playlists and transitions were top of the list. He also went above and beyond (literally and musically) by mic’ing us and our officiant perfectly for the breezy beachside setting. Dayve is a true professional who provides top notch service, broad event advice, and spot on vibes throughout many hours of wedding transitions. In addition to making our day amazing, he was clearly respected and appreciated by his vendor teammates. All the best Dayve – we look forward to working together in the future!”

To say that DJ Dayve is the best DJ is an understatement! Throughout the entire wedding planning process, DJ Dayve was extremely professional and organized as well as positive, and personable. DJ Dayve is an excellent communicator and pays close attention to detail. He went above and beyond for us. DJ Dayve created an experience that was unforgettable for us. He helped us pick beautiful music for our ceremony, fun loving music for our cocktail hour, and music that kept the dance floor packed at our reception! He made the introductions, bouquet toss, and garter toss so enjoyable for our guests! We have received so many compliments from our friends about how much fun they had dancing at our wedding and that DJ Dayve was absolutely perfect. I highly recommend DJ Dayve!

“If you’re looking for a DJ who will not only put on a perfect show but will also flawlessly customize and structure the evening both leading up to and during your wedding, you’re looking for DJ Dayve. If Grammy awards were given to DJ’s…this guy would undoubtedly be its first recipient. Everything was seamlessly executed and all of our requests were accommodated. I would fly DJ Dayve in for my next event if I had to.”

Sabra and Brian’s WeddingWire Review: 
“DJ Dayve truly helped to take our wedding above and beyond our expectations. As a Bride that wasn’t the best at planning and organizing, I relied on Dayve to help me coordinate the reception. Dayve was so knowledgeable and professional when it came to planning. He made everything seem so relaxed and easy! Dayve worked with our vendors on his own to make sure that everyone was on the same page. He was so flexible and was always available to talk when I had a last minute question or just needed to be reassured that everything was going to run smoothly. My husband and I had a different idea for our pre-ceremony music. When we shared it with Dayve, he was excited to help us get creative and to make our idea a reality. We gave him a few songs that we liked and he was able to build and incredible playlist. Our guests are still asking us for the list of songs! Dayve got the party going immediately just as we had asked. Our guests never left the dancefloor! My husband is Egyptian and want to incorporate some Egyptian music. Dayve was excited to accommodate and did a wonderful job reading the crowd and alternating back and forth. Dayve also brought and set up some amazing up lighting. The up lighting completely changed the feel of our venue. We were so thankful to have Dayve be part of our big day!”

“The reception would not have been the same had it not been for the perfectly executed playlist! DJ Dayve did such a great job taking the playlist we built, and choosing particular songs based on how the crowd was reacting. Throughout the process, Dayve had given great feedback on our playlist, making sure it was well rounded for all of the guests. It was also super helpful that Dayve had specific lists of recommended songs for special moments such as the cake cutting and bouquet toss. Thanks again Dayve!”

DJ DAYVE: D…efinitely the nicest, coolest, most professional and accommodating DJ to date J…ukebox?! Pah! This DJ completely customizes hundreds of songs to your personal playlist preference! D…dangerously in love with what he does and it shows in the best of ways! A…lways coming up with the best suggestions to make your dance party a success Y…ou’re still reading his reviews and haven’t hired him yet?! V…ery good at mixing music for guests across all age groups and music tastes E…very wedding couple’s dream! Seriously. Stop looking. Just hire DJ Dayve! We didn’t even know where to start when we decided we needed a DJ. DJ Dayve came highly recommended to us and it’s crystal clear why! He’s so organized from the first discovery call to the last detail. Everything is done via email, online forms, and easy to use website features that make payment, music selection, etc. a breeze. No old school printing 50 sheets of music, driving somewhere to drop off a check, etc. He was one of the first vendors at the wedding and the last to leave. That kind of true dedication is only possible when you absolutely freaking love what you do – it’s clear DJ Dayve does. Thank you for making our evening such a hit. You somehow magically managed to make everyone happy and excited with just the right songs at just the right time. Hats off to you!

Shannon and Jon’s WeddingWire Review:
DJ Dayve was FANTASTIC! From start to finish he gave us nothing but great communication and professional service. The music portion of our wedding was one of the most important elements to us. DJ Dayve really took the time to understand our individual personalities, our relationship as a couple and the dynamics of our guests which resulted in Dayve producing the perfect combination of music that was enjoyed by everyone! I had quite a few extra requests for music equipment and specifics for lighting and every request was not only met with an “absolutely” but he also did everything he could to help keep the cost very reasonable. The ABSOLUTE BEST part of working with DJ Dayve was the reception. He was incredible. He was so in tune with each of our guests that he had them all up on the dance floor showing their moves with the biggest smiles on their faces. The best part was to turn around and see Dayve, and his assistant, dancing too! They seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves right along with us. It made it feel like we had hired a long time friend. At our breakfast the following morning, I was told over and over by our family and friends how impressed they were with the music and DJ Dayve. It brought us complete joy to see each of our guests having so much fun and to hear how much they enjoyed our entire wedding. DJ Dayve was a big part of that success. We would hire him again in a heartbeat if we are ever planning a party again in Florida!
