"We hired DSM Dance Party Djs for our wedding and they absolutely live up to their name! All of my crew was out on the floor dancing the entire night! We had DJ Dez and he was one of the coolest people I have ever worked with. Completely understood the vibe we were going for and did an excellent job mixing and keeping the energy right where it needed to be. He was incredibly pleasant and professional and his set-up looked great. He always kept in contact with me and was super accommodating even as my indecisive self made some last minute changes. I cannot recommend DSM Dance Party Djs and DJ Dez enough!"


"DJ Dez is skilled with talents
on both the turntables and microphone. His laid back demeanor makes him easy to work with. His leadership and fun attitude gets people excited to head towards the dance floor!"

"I had such a pleasure working with DSM Dance Party DJ’s, but what really set this company apart from others is their willingness to make the client happy. A good service knows what a client needs before they need it which they accomplished; but they also listened to our ideas and made them come to life. DJ Des was a phenomenal emcee and I couldn’t have wished for a better DJ to be there on our big day. From ceremony to the last song they will make this portion of your day stress free and amazing."
