Dave did a killer job at my wedding! While his DJ work at the wedding was spectacular, what we really appreciated was the fact that once we hired him, we knew that we didn't have to hold his hand and that he'd just take care of things. During the reception he was flexible with what we needed and pulled out of his huge music library, a song that someone requested just for fun. He's great, and we will definately hire him for our next extravaganza!
I hired Dave to handle the music for my wedding reception. He did an amazing job. I knew he would be good, I have seen him run Karaoke many times, but the way he handled the crowd and the way the music flowed stunned me. I couldn't have imaged a better DJ. I have a difficult family and wanted to keep the playlist a specific way. He worked well with me and never questioned my selection. He came up with great options as well. He knows his music. Email me if you have any questions about Dave. I would recommend him to anyone.
When my husband and I started to plan our wedding, we originally decided that we would just put a playlist on the ipod and have friends sort of oversee pushing the stop and start buttons. As time went on and we talked with more people, it became apparent that having a DJ was crucial to the timing and success of our wedding, so we began looking. After contacting dozens of DJs, I finally got in touch with Dave Patterson. Over the phone, he was upbeat, interested in the wedding, and straightforward-- he asked a lot of questions to get a picture of exactly what would work for us. We made and appointment to meet in person and at the meeting he was organized, professional and very personable-- just what we were looking for!
All I can say is that I feel extraordinarily lucky to have hired Dave. He was reasonably priced (some of the others I had called were absolutely outrageous!) and listened to everything we wanted (no YMCA, Chicken Dance, or Macarena for me, thank you!). He arrived really early to set up and triple check everything and kept the timing going perfectly. He led guests in a few games and kept everyone enthusiastic, happy, and dancing.
Several of our guests commented to us later how well he kept everyone on track and got everyone participating-- I would think that a DJ would have to be pretty spectacular to be worth commenting on after all was said and done-- and he was. The music was fabulous and we so much appreciated all his hard work and dedication to making our day perfect!
I can highly recommend having Dave at your wedding, or any event really, if you're looking for a fabulous DJ who goes above and beyond. If you have any specific questions, feel free to message me!
