Bakersfield Wedding DJ

Bakersfield Weddings
& Surrounding Areas

Congratulation on your upcoming wedding!

I'm certain that you're going to be happy you’ve found me, since my expertise and skill level with weddings is as high as it gets. The way I got to this level is by honing my skills by focusing on and exclusively DJing weddings for over 20 years. This makes my style uniquely "wedding perfect", such as my style of announcing, my style of coordinating, the music I play, and the physical presentation aspect. Also unique is that I implement extreme dependability and punctuality measures, which are crucial when it comes to wedding receptions.

As your DJ I will move your reception forward by first making sure you two are ready and that everything is in place prior to each step, and then guide your guests by using my tasteful style of announcing. I’m going to completely customize and stylize your music to your individual taste and selections.

My Experience

Throughout the years I’ve disc jockeyed thousands of weddings with about one-third being at venues such as the Hotel Bel Air, the Chateau Marmot, the Hotel Del Coronado, the Trump International Golf Resort, Disneyland, The Queen Mary, the Montecito Inn, and the Beverly Hills Peninsula Hotel, which for years exclusively used me as the only DJ they would recommend for wedding receptions. The other two-thirds of my receptions I've DJed were at small local venues and backyards. I’ve also have had the pleasure of working with a number of well known actors and music artists for their weddings or their family's weddings. My experience with weddings is more vast and extreme than any DJ that I’m aware of.

Name any place in Southern California and I bet I’ve worked there at least once, but now days I like working close to home, so now I only cater to Bakersfield and closely surrounding areas. Also what's really great is that I keep my rates in check, so that the average person can still afford me and have quality help for their wedding reception.

Service Features

I will be the DJ that will personally provide your wedding reception entertainment. I don't sub-out any of my weddings to anyone for any reason.

I provide a truly personalized and customized wedding service in every way, so you will get exactly what you want.

Rates well below what is typical for this level of service -starting at $1300. for 3 hours of music and MC.

I will keep your wedding reception together and flowing smooth at the right pace, by orchestrating and arranging every step prior to my initiating each step.

A saying I came up with 15 years ago is, "a wedding is a plan in progress till the minute it happens", so knowing this hard fact I am very flexible, impromptu, and helpful throughout your entire wedding reception.

Extensive knowledge of all genres and all decades of music, so I can help you if you need help with your music selections. 

I wear a nicely tailored black suit, with a black dress shirt and a strait regularly knotted tie that is sold gray/silver. Or you can choose one of my other more casual styles of dress or I'll dress according to a theme.

Obsessive punctuality, resulting in never being late to a wedding in all my over 20 years. Punctuality system set in place. I arrive to the wedding location well over an hour before I need to setup. No other DJ has that type of track record. 

I perform all styles of wedding receptions; from country, casual nontraditional, black tie, to beach style and many others. 

Because of all the unique ways I operate, with more unique ways mentioned on Wedding Secrets, I am consistent at turning out professional results.
