We just booked a Dj for our bay area (Palo Alto) wedding a couple weeks ago. We had a hard time figuring out which djs were good and ended up going with a company who also did our friend’s wedding: http://www.bigfundj.com

We also met some Djs at a wedding fair that we attended…it was a good way to see their equipment and meet the djs.

Victor Lee: <span class=”HcCDpe”>[email protected] (SF)

 We were going to use him but a friend is doing it for us as a gift.  Victor is very prompt and super nice.  He even sent me a mixed CD of his music.  It was very good!  He quoted us at $500 from 6-11.  MUCH more reasonable then other DJs.  My friend is paying $2500!  For WHAT?!?!?  

 Email victor and tell him Ines sent u!

We also decided to book Big Fun DJs for our wedding. I researched quite a few, and they had consistent positive reviews. We also liked that we don’t have to pay them until 30 days after the wedding. And Henry, the owner, is extremely responsive, thorough and helpful. We met our DJ, Stefano, in person and feel like we made the right choice.

My suggestion is to take all of the names of DJs you have referred to you on here, and that you see recommended on other places (like the Knot, Indiebride, etc.) and research them. Look for reviews (like on Yelp or Project Wedding), Google them to see what you find, etc. Choose the ones you feel best about after researching them. Email them to see if they’re available, and compile a list of questions to ask them. See how you feel about their responses. Ask for references and call them.

A few others I looked into include DJ Dave Tutton ([email protected] — no website. This guy DJs for Francis Ford Coppola), DJ Rich Amooi (http://www.heymrdj.com), Fog City Entertainment (http://www.fogcityent.com), The Spinheads (http://www.thespinheads.com) and Denon & Doyle (we ultimated vetoed them because of some very negative reviews we found that made us uncomfortable with picking them).

Word of mouth referrals, from people who used or went to an event a particular DJ was at will provide your most useful recommendations.
