Dan was the mastermind behind our creative music approach at our wedding. We wanted a live DJ, with multiple live instruments. Since this hasn’t really been done, it had to be created from scratch. Dan went above in beyond as far as planning, production and design. Music is extremely important to us so we wanted this to be the biggest part of our wedding, and Dan delivered! People still talk about the live music and DJ at our wedding. It was better than we could’ve ever imagined, and made for the best party. We are so grateful for Dan and his creative team! 12/10 recommend
We would give Dan 100 stars if we could! From our first meeting, we told him that we wanted our wedding reception to be like a Vegas night club - and that's exactly what he created. He turned our small, intimate 80-guest wedding into a rager and had every single guest out on the dance floor. After a 2 hour 45 minute dance set our guests still wanted more, and they're still talking about Dan 3 weeks later.
The music selection, lighting, energy and enthusiasm Dan provided truly made our wedding better than we could've imagined. There is so much more to say but to sum it all up, you will not regret hiring Dan for your event. We will be looking for any excuse to throw a party just to work with him again!
It's been 5 days since my wedding and I am STILL getting messages from guests about how incredible Dan was. We prioritized booking him for our wedding almost 1.5 yrs in advance, and it was the BEST decision we ever made. From our initial call with Dan, he understood our vision and was SO passionate about his work. I already knew we were in good hands then, but throughout the planning process he was available to answer questions when needed. We had a completely packed venue, and he was able to give us his expert advice about things you would NEVER think of to ensure our layout would be problem free - outlet/power locations, voltage capacity, other electrical/engineering things that are way beyond my knowledge, dance floor size recommendations, lighting locations and transition colors, speaker counts/locations to avoid echoing in a huge room...anything you could think of, he knew it! And this was ONLY the beginning of our interactions with Dan.
We finally met in person to go over music and details, and Dan is quite literally an encyclopedia of songs. He knew every song we mentioned, was recommending songs off the cuff to compliment what vibe we were trying to achieve, and he was able to explain in detail how he planned to build the production of the night musically and through lighting. It was so impressive to experience in person, which only validated our decision and trust in him even more.
The day of the wedding - WOW. I cannot begin to explain. We told Dan we had a vision of having live sax with Marquise (also booked through Dan because they are the PERFECT duo). Our dream was to open the reception doors early for a cocktail hour dancing set to get the party going, and the song choices from the live sax built up the excitement perfectly for the cocktail dancing set. Within minutes of the doors opening, our ENTIRE dance floor was filled and people were dancing non-stop to the incredible mix of songs Dan put together. Dancing didn't stop until Dan had to get on the mic to tell people to sit down for the wedding party introductions. How many weddings have full on dance parties in daylight..during cocktail hour???? Dan made it happen.
Dinner set was incredible, our guests were vibing the entire time. I was very worried that our taste in music (lots of house/edm) was not going to be great for our older guests, especially my Vietnamese family members. However, EVERYONE was so happy and enjoying the music between the live sax and mix of modern songs/oldies that the whole room was lively the entire 2 hours. Even my older Vietnamese guests made it out on the dance floor for dancing between courses, which made me so so happy.
The 2.5 hour party set was truly unbelievable. Our guests were out on the dance floor the SECOND it opened up for the party, and was packed until we shut down at 11:30 PM. Marquise was intermixed in the crowd playing directly to our guests and they LOVED it. The tell tale sign of incredible music at a wedding is of course a packed dance floor, but having GROUPS of people come up to us telling us they didn't go to the bathroom during the 2.5 hrs because the music was so good just takes it to the next level 🤣.
You cannot go wrong with Dan. I don't even want to call him a DJ because it doesn't do him justice. He is an artist, professional, engineer, visionary, creative director, EVERYTHING you could ask for in someone who is creating the entertainment for your night. You neeed need neeeeeed to book him for your wedding if you want to have a real dance party. He will not let you down!!! We are looking for reasons to book Dan and Marquise again - that is how much I am willing to pay for this level of entertainment again. The memories they gave us and our guests are worth every single penny. We couldn't be happier!!!
HIGH ENERGY!!! That is what our wedding guests continue to tell us about our wedding. Dan kept the dance floor packed all night and what else could you ask for? What sets Dan apart from everyone else is his attention to detail and how much he wants to make your wedding all about you and your personal tastes. Nothing is impossible with Dan, you just simply need to ask. And he’ll still throw in surprises during the night tailor-made to you! Leading up to our wedding, my wife and I always felt like we were in good hands with Dan and that allowed us to focus on other parts of the wedding planning. We had not one, but *several* meetings with him as we talked through not only the music for our reception, but all of the complexities within our wedding party intros, our own intro, the dances with parents, ceremony music - all of it. Dan has the patience and care to want to go through each and every detail with you and get to know you on a personal level to help him deliver the best experience for you! If you want to make a decision that will reduce your stress leading up to your wedding AND end up having an amazing unforgettable party?!?! Hire Dan now. Look at the pic I posted with this review - that’s me in the front and that’s Dan in the back - and we are giving it our all! Thank you Dan for everything!
Having Dan dj our wedding was one of the best decisions we made!!!! We got married over 3 months ago and people are still telling us it was the best dance floor they have ever seen!!! Not only did dan bring life to the dance floor but he played an acoustic set for the ceremony and transformed the reception room into an unbelievable dance atmosphere with his expert lighting!! Dan also partnered with Matt Thelen who stole the show on the dance floor playing the saxophone live!! Dan listened to our vision and went above and beyond to make it happen!! If you are looking for a dj, book Dan!! He is worth every penny!!!
I had the most incredible experience with our wedding DJ, DQB Entertainment!! From start to finish, he truly made our special day unforgettable. His talent for reading the crowd and selecting the perfect songs had everyone on their feet and dancing the night away. Not only did he have an extensive music collection, but his seamless transitions and mix of genres kept the energy high and the atmosphere electric. I had countless guests tell me that our wedding was the funnest they’ve ever attended! His professional demeanor and attention to detail ensured that everything ran smoothly, allowing my spouse and I to fully enjoy the celebration. I can't thank Dan enough — he truly exceeded all expectations and created a magical soundtrack for our love story.
Can I give DQ six stars? Or 10? This man and his team are AMAZING! Not only did he care deeply about every detail of our wedding, but also about what music shaped me and my husband's life. He took every word we said about music, theme songs, and sound bits to heart and incorporated them into our reception and ceremony. First off, he created a remix of The Office theme song with bits of "Bears, Beats, Battlestar Galactica" thrown in there that made my mouth drop (The Office is very special to us). Then, he made sure to hit every decade of music so that each person on the dance floor knew at least one song. And then, to top it off, the dance floor never quieted down. We danced the whole night!!! Also, Marquise.... how do I begin to describe the man, the myth, the legend. He is the saxophone player that works with Dan... but not any saxophone player. Try one that dances all night with you, can play with any song, and can turn an amazing dance floor to an epic one. I am so thankful for these two to have been a part of our wedding. It would not have been the same without them. <3
If you hire them, please invite me 😉
Dan was just an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. He exceeded our expectations for our wedding day and went above and beyond! We can’t recommend him enough and look forward to working with him again!
Dan is amazing. I don’t know how many times I can say that in one weekend. From the beginning he took time to get to know us as a couple and hear our vision. He wanted to hear about our families and friends and learn what they like. He made our wedding the best. We had so many people telling us it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to and I know 100% it was because of the atmosphere Dan created. We also had Marquis on sax and if you’re able to add that do it! It adds such a fun element to the wedding and Marquis is so fun and talented. He tore up the dance floor all night dancing and interacting with our guests. I want to get married all over again just so we can throw a party with Dan and Marquis. The cryo guns were also such a fun touch and our guests loved the energy they brought. If you’re thinking about booking with Dan, do it. You will not regret it. Best DJ in the business.
We absolutely love Dan and he made our wedding vision come true! The night was so fun and we got so many comments from guests on how amazing he was! Most of our guests stayed and danced until the last minute! Another thing I want to point out is that Dan takes time to also get to know you and really pay attention to special details such as cultural elements if its important to you. Thank you again for make our wedding amazing!
