THE BEST DJ IN THE GAME! There aren't enough words to express our gratitude and love for Dan. He listened to exactly what we wanted, provided helpful tips, and gave us the most PERFECT playlist. My husband and I had the time of our lives, as did our guests.
A little background about our day: We had to postpone our original date due to a COVID exposure within 2 weeks of our wedding day. Not only were we devastated, but our original DJ wasn't available for our new date. Dan was our saving grace - he helped us find a renewed excitement for our new date.
Shortly after we were married, we found out we were pregnant. After Dan found out, he sent us a book to read to our sweet girl! I mean, what other DJ does that?! Dan genuinely cares for his clients - before, during, and after the wedding day. We just hope he is still in the game when it is time for our daughter to get married!!
HIGHLY RECOMMEND DJ DAN!!
Planning a wedding/party can be exhausting. When we started our planning we didn't have much direction, especially with the entertainment and DJ. We received a referral to Dan and that's when we never looked back. Dan's level of engagement and professionalism starts with his communication and initial sit down's to understand who you are, who your family is and who your friends are. He actively listens to your every want/need and then transforms that into reality. We wanted a party. We got a party. Something I'm very thankful for is Dan's ability to read a dance floor and adapt on the fly. Our party started out solid but nothing insane. From there about 65% of our guests went outside to smoke cigars and we completely lost the dance floor. The music changed, the vibe changed but most importantly, Dan caught on and adapted. When we all came back inside, we had 65 minutes to turn it up and once again, Dan adapted and turned our dance floor into complete insanity. I couldn't be happier with how things turned out and I'm very thankful that Dan was able to adapt on the fly. My two pieces of advice are to hire Dan and hire Dan. If you don't hire Dan, you're making the wrong decision. My last piece of advice is to hire Dan. Wedding vendors don't always meet expectations. Very rarely do they exceed expectations. Dan and DBQ Entertainment are on a whole another level than meeting or exceeding expectations. We grew to love Dan and I don't mean that in a cliché sense. Our love for Dan is real and what he was able to bring to our wedding day was nothing short of spectacular.
Now, down to the deets. How does one seamlessly blend sunshiney reggae, accordion heavy Czech music, angsty pop punk, and heavy EDM, all while ensuring a smoothly flowing wedding with no cringey commentary? One doesn't. One hires Dan Quinn.
When we said that we wanted our prelude music to be LoFi John Denver, our processional to be Concerning Hobbits, and our recessional to be some Afrojack with the volume cranked, Dan didn't flinch. He was so stoked to lean in to our ideas, getting excited about them himself, which made us feel even more confident leaving many choices as his own game time decisions.
Choosing a stellar DJ is more integral to a good wedding than many think! The second we hopped on Zoom we knew that he was it for us. Dan is the pinnacle of professional, caring, interested, and fun. He is the only DJ we will ever recommend, because he not only kills the music, but takes no prisoners with his lighting and toys [our flower girl cannot stop talking about you giving her the cryo gun!].
No regrets, 1000/10, hire Dan!
Dan was a savior! Our wedding in France had been postponed four times and we couldn't take it any longer. We planned our wedding in Dallas Texas in 38 days and we could not have done it without Dan. Not only did he CRUSH every phase of the wedding with music, sound and lighting, but he gave us sound advice and ideas to enhance the experience for our guests. He will forever be our only DJ that we use for any event moving forward. If you are looking for a DJ - STOP - and hire him, you will have zero regrets.
Dan is the epitome of professional. He went above and beyond as DJ and Emcee for our fundraising event and on such short notice! He mixed music for our event that had everyone dancing without a dance floor, upped our models' energy on the runway and made the event so much fun! We have also worked with him for corporate events and weddings, and he always exceeds expectations. Thank you, Dan!
Dan was the first vendor we booked after we chose our venue, and we couldn’t be happier!! Dan knew how important it was to us that we get our crowd dancing, and he created the most incredible party atmosphere beginning from the cocktail hour all the way through to our exit. He worked in music he knew was important to my husband and me, all while getting the dance floor packed and creating so much fun energy!! The entire night we had multiple guests coming up to us commenting on how fantastic the DJ was. Thanks to Dan for making our reception so much fun, and if you’re considering booking a DJ for your wedding reception — look no further! Dan is your guy!
We got married and Brik in Ft. Worth, unlike many couples we had no idea what we wanted. Brik offered a preferred vendors list and Dan was on it. Our planner highly recommended him and we are so glad she did. Dan had several meetings with us on what we wanted out of the wedding, our schedules were terrible and he still found time to make it happen. He also met with other vendors to make sure they were on the same page. All that and the music was awesome, he had people on the dance floor the whole night, and most of all he knew how to handle the crowd. We could not recommend him enough. He went the extra mile to make our day special.
From start to finish our entire experience with Dan was FIVE STARS. In fact, he was the very first vendor we booked for our Knotting Hill Place wedding. During our initial conversation in September of 2020, I felt completely at ease. He was so personable and upbeat, and I immediately knew he would be the guy to bring the party and provide our guests an incredible time! Dan is a true professional and it’s completely clear that he LOVES what he does. He not only offered us recommendations for music choices but also helped create our entire reception timeline to ensure our night would flow well and be exactly what we wanted. I was a PICKY bride, down to every last detail and I never once had any question that Dan would do an amazing job. That peace of mind is huge considering how stressful wedding planning is! He exceeded all our expectations! We have had so many guests tell us since our wedding that it was very best/most fun wedding they have EVER been to. If you have the opportunity to book with Dan, do it now! Thank you, Dan, being a big part of the most incredible night of our lives. And P.S., add on the Cryo Gun!!!! It may have been my husband’s favorite part of our reception 😂. – Jen & Brian
Our wedding was amazing, and a substantial portion of that is thanks to Dan. I think hiring Dan was hands down the best decision we made for the wedding. Though our wedding crowd was full of party people who would’ve danced no matter what, Dan brought the thunder and really got people going. To be honest, as a musician myself, I was blown away by his dynamic ability. He DJs amazingly, he sings great, and he plays (guitar) well. He truly is one of the best DJs we've ever heard, and I mean that in comparison to touring, big name acts. We can’t thank Dan enough. Thanks so much for helping make the night magical and if we need a DJ for any events in the future, you’re the guy.
Dan is phenomenal, highly professional and literally THE most fun. For our wedding, dancing and having a blast at the reception was at the top of the priority list, and Dan did not disappoint. He took the time to get to know us and our music tastes personally in order to create a truly unique experience for our wedding reception. His high energy, personality and charisma truly shine through behind the DJ booth, and we were stoked to have him bring the party to our special day - we had so many compliments about the music/how fun the night was.
We are just sad it went so fast. If you want your wedding to be incredibly fun and well-executed, DQB Entertainment is the only way to go. Also ask for the cryo gun - EPIC.
