Monterey Wedding DJ Testimonials
Once we began working with Darion we experienced the exact same service. It is quite refreshing to find a company that holds their services to high standards these days. We were making changes to the music literally up to the last day and we always got the same answer “no problem”.
On our wedding day I didn’t have time to worry about whether the DJ was going do a good job or not and everything they did leading up to the day gave me that confidence that we would have no problems. I did not worry once about the DJ. The ceremony ran smoothly and without a flaw, it was beautiful. At the reception we had to make changes to our introductions and thank goodness Darion came to us to make sure it was correct or I would have never realized the errors until it had been too late. I really appreciated his attentiveness through the entire reception. He interacted well with the guests and accommodated their song requests. We have only received compliments on the entire event and I felt that besides our wedding coordinator, Darion was a very large part of that success. I will always hold DNA in very high regards for helping make our special day so perfect. Thank you Anthony and Darion for all of your help!”

“Where to even begin …
DNA was absolutely wonderful to work with! From the moment I met Anthony, his outgoing personality and easy going nature had me sold on DNA’s services.
Always responsive to emails and phone calls, no matter what time of day. Very helpful with planning the events of the day and the song choices. Very patient and always professional … especially in those last few “Bridezilla” weeks leading up to the wedding.
Our wedding day could not have been more perfect! Everything flowed so smoothly, everyone was laughing and having a great time. Little did I know how much the DJ affects the mood of a wedding – Anthony was awesome! – we had people dancing we had never seen dance! A great time had by all and we have Anthony @ DNA to thank.
Our day would not have been the same without DNA’s service and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!”

“Can’t imagine you’ll find a better DJ service in our area!
DNA is reasonably priced, in other words when we got our quote I wasn’t surprised, but very pleased with the amount and right on target with our expectations. DNA is very quick to respond to inquiries and easy to work with, I think we only had to meet with them twice.
We had Darion as our DJ and he was awesome. My wife met Darion at a bridal/wedding convention and she immediately booked him(book early too!), I would highly recommend meeting your DJ before hand because it seems like each has their own personality and musical tastes and you can easily work with Anthony to match theirs to your own. Much like the last review we didn’t even have our music list done until a day or two before the wedding and we emailed it to Darion no problem.
We had our wedding and reception at two different locations and DNA was early and ready to rock. We did end up needing a generator for our ceremony site(outdoors), but there were supposed to be outlets and somebody had smashed/removed them. However, DNA saved the day by getting a generator(at no cost to us I might add) with plenty of time to rehearse for the ceremony. The ceremony then went flawlessly and the song we chose for my wife’s walk down the isle was mixed in so perfectly, it still chokes me up to hear it today . It was a really magical moment that DNA helped us achieve. I know I will never forget it.
At the reception DNA played everything we had requested and then some, it was great. Darion matched the music he mixed in with our selections and we loved it. Our guests loved it and there was pretty much constant dancing throughout the night. Never a dull moment, the night went by very fast for us.
We recommended DNA to our friends for their wedding and they did not disappoint. It was another awesome party. We also recommended them to another couple who plans on using them for their wedding.”

”When planning our wedding, to me, music was one of the most important aspects of the evening. I did some searching and when I came across DNA’s website, I felt drawn to it and it felt right to me to book them. Even though I contracted with them a year in advance,, and didn’t “speak” with them until right before our wedding, I never once second guessed my choice. Sometimes, you just know when things are right. We were even more excited when we found out that Anthony would be our DJ. I was really hoping that it would be him. Again, just another feeling. Well all my premonitions were right, I couldn’t have been happier. The music was great and always kept people dancing. I must say, I had never seen that many people on the dance floor at any other wedding I had been too, and I have been to a lot. I wanted a dance party and that is what I got. What was really special to me, was that Anthony came to me when there was time for two more songs, he asked me which songs I want him to play. Maybe all our must play songs didn’t get played but the funny thing, two of the songs still on the list happened to be two of my most favorite…I don’t think I ever told Anthony that, but it is funny how things work out! Like I said, I just knew he would be the right person to DJ our wedding and I was right. I would recommend DNA to anyone. I always look back with a smile….and an urge to dance.”

“When Christine and I started planning our Monterey wedding, one of the areas that stressed us out the most was the entertainment, as this can make or break a reception and the whole wedding. When we spoke with DNA Entertainment about what we wanted for the reception, you took the stress right out of our hands. The reception was perfect and exactly what we wanted; you played the songs we requested, kept everything on schedule, and you kept the crowd motivated and dancing. You and DNA Entertainment helped make this day perfect for me and my wife to remember forever.
Thank you again for a perfect day,”

“We were absolutely delighted to have Darion at our party! He made it extra fabulous by playing special requests and encouraging people to dance. Not every young guy could handle an all-women party with most of the attendees being over 45, but Darion did it with grace, humor, and a genuine sense of fun. Thank you so much. We will definitely be calling you the next time we need a DJ!”

“Based on their great references, experience, and reasonable prices, we hired DNA Disc Jockey Service. Our party was a memorable experience for all that attended, especially for our family. DNA supplied all of our special musical needs, led the kids in fun games, had lighting to give that party feeling and played all the music requested throughout the evening. By the end of the night, the kids knew the DJ by name. Thank you DNA! We hope you are available for our next event.”
