"Everyone LOVED Jeff! He was an incredible find for us. We wanted guitar music during our pre-ceremony cocktail hour, ceremony, and cocktail hour; a dj for our reception; and also an mc and he did it ALL. I also requested a very special song for my dad and I to walk down the aisle to - Thank You by Led Zeppelin. He learned to play it on his guitar and sent me a YouTube link so I could watch it before the big day. He nailed it! All of our guests had a blast with him. We had included a line for our guests to make a song request on our rsvp cards and Jeff did a great job of incorporating those songs into his playlist. Everyone was so excited when their song came up. I would definitely recommend DJ Jeffty for any event you have. He helped make our wedding day very special!" - Danielle M. via WeddingWire/TheKnot (Big Sur 10-22-16)
"Picking the right DJ for an event, especially for a wedding ceremony, is probably the most important decision made in determining the success of the event. A good DJ knows how to read the crowd and keep the event flowing and upbeat. Jeff did that and more. The dance floor was full the entire evening. His playlist was spot on. He was basically invisible and yet seemed to be a part of everything by his own enthusiastic participation. A crazy balance I've never seen before.
Thanks DJ Jeffty for memories our guest will be talking about for a very long time. 5+stars for a quality job - a step above the rest!" - Mother of the Bride Pat via Yelp (Santa Cruz 11-26-16)
"While planning for our own wedding, we quickly learned that a DJ can really make or break the flow of an evening. I think we can all recall that one wedding with the token awkward DJ. DJ Jeffty was definitely not that guy. Not only was he an awesome DJ, but an amazing, natural MC as well. As we planned for the big day, he was with us every step of the way, quickly responding to emails, helping us plan our day-of schedule and intently listening to all of our ideas." - Bianca and Glen via Yelp (Santa Cruz 9-27-14)
Trust your DJ!
After nearly a decade of DJing I've learned just how important music and sound can be to weddings. Not just what music is being played, but also when and how it's being played. I love the reactions people have to music, I love when people hear a favorite they haven't heard in years, or when they hear a new song that they instantaneously enjoy. A DJ should have not just a large library of music, but should have the ability to read the crowd and understand what musically is best for each part of your celebration. This ability comes from experience and from preparation.
Professional Experience + Professional Preparation = Professional Execution
It's not just about the equipment, and how loud the music can be. As your wedding DJ one of the most valuable services I offer is assistance in preparation. Whether it be face to face meetings, phone calls, emails, skype/facetime etc... I want to make sure that I am as accessible as possible to you. That way your mind can be at ease during your wedding and you are free to soak in the day. If you're unsure of what you want, I can provide suggestions and tips for music selection, or I can work with strict complete playlists you provide.
