  • What can I say... The best day of our lives and we had the best DJ that a couple could ask for... DJ DARLA BEA. From our first conversation to post wedding check ins Darla has been amazing. She made the process so smooth and seemless, listened to what we had to say and chimed in with her experience and thoughts. It was always a pleasure talking to get by email, phone or even text. She is very organized and made it easy to her the information she needed to plan the music sets. DJ Darla is amazing when it comes to keeping the dance floor going but she is an amazing emcee as well. We never had any concerns during the ceremony or reception because DJ Darla was in control with anything audio. If something came up she would always come talk to us and if the venue or our day of coordinator needed something she would always communicate with them. Throughout the night DJ Darla handled business behind her turn tables and in front of the turn tables. There is nothing that we can say w... Read more

  • Darla Bea is simply amazing. She was one of the first vendors we hired when we were originally planning a 150 person wedding at a large venue in Santa Barbara. From the start, Darla was helpful, responsive, and easy to work with. With the pandemic, we had to cancel most of our plans a few months before the wedding date and chose to instead host a small wedding with immediate family in a family member's backyard. Darla helped convince us that we could still have beautiful music at our 12-person wedding, and made herself available to visit our new venue, work with us on an updated playlist, and answer any questions that came up while we scrambled to plan a safe event. At our wedding, Darla did a fantastic job as MC and DJ, guiding our guests throughout the evening, playing all of the songs we requested, and remembering all of the details we had discussed. She also helped us capture some wonderful pictures with sparklers and made it feel like a true wedding. Even with our small casual wed... Read more

  • We hired DJ Darla Bea to not only do our cocktail hour and reception but also curate the music for our ceremony. Not only is she an incredibly professional and buttoned up master of the turntable, she is so much fun and adds a whole level of celebration to the party. I just can’t say enough good things about her. If you are looking for a DJ that you can trust, that is professional and energetic that you can count on, look no further I just can’t thank her enough for every minute of energy and she brought to our day!

  • We knew we were going to hire DJ Darla Bea within five minutes of chatting with her on the phone! She was so friendly and communicative, and followed up with us frequently during planning. We were admittedly pretty hands-off when it came to music selection, giving her guidance on specific songs we wanted played (walking down the aisle, entrance, first dance, exit, etc.) and gave her a sample of what kind of music we really loved and a list of things that we didn't and let her do the rest. She did a PHENOMENAL job not only MCing the night, but also reading the room and knowing when to break out a sweet slow jam or a song to really get the party started. A good DJ is instrumental for the atmosphere of an event, and my husband and I were a little concerned only because our wedding was fairly small, but the dance floor was full all night and everyone had an absolute blast!

  • We LOVE Darla!! We started the process of hiring a DJ for our wedding a year prior to our wedding. She listened to every detail as we expressed how important music was as a part of our day. She was so kind and easy to work with, we knew she was a perfect fit. We had nothing but great compliments all day at our wedding. She tailored everything to be perfect for our day! She nailed every song and kept people dancing until the very last minute. People LOVED her signature glow sticks and we feel like made an amazing friend during the entire experience. I would recommend Darla to anyone and everyone. Thank you for everything!!

She made sure everyone had a blast! She was super flexible and helpful during the planning process and an amazing presence to have around on your big day! Couldn’t recommend her more!! Thank you so much Darla!!

  • Wow, my husband and I were lucky to be referred to Darla. From the moment we contacted her, DJ Darla was always kind and offered her advice and wedding knowledge and experience. We ended up having to switch our wedding venue and date, and Darla was flexible and willing to work with us throughout the whole wedding process. She is truly a professional. She played music we requested and knew when and how to get people on the dance floor. We have so many memories of that wonderful day and we are so glad we hired Darla. If you want a great experience and excellent DJ process I would hire DJ Darla Bea!!!

  • Darla was an absolute joy to deal with and made everything so easy for us. We had a real mixed crowd and Darla did an incredible job of keeping the party going from start to finish whilst catering to everyone's tastes perfectly. If you are looking for someone who is skilled, experienced and knows how to read a crowd and get everyone dancing then Darla is 100% who you need to book!

  • We were very fortunate to be able to book Darla for our wedding. Darla is an incredible DJ and emcee. She is connected to many Santa Barbara wedding vendors and very well known and respected in the area. She took the time to get to know us and learn our music taste. She offered strong opinions and gave us honest feedback about some of our most important song choices (first dance, father-daughter dance, etc.). With all of the stress of planning a wedding, having someone who can give strong, informed opinions is invaluable. We can’t thank Darla enough for that. She spent hours with us on the phone and collaborating on a document to craft the perfect playlist for each part of our wedding day. Darla did our ceremony music (at the courthouse) using the speakers we rented from Just 4 Fun and used her own setup at our reception venue. This made for a seamless transition from one to the other, and we could not have been happier with her work. She knows how to set the mood for a beautiful... Read more

  • Darla Bea is fantastic! She was so personable on the phone and we knew from the first moment that we connected with her that we had made the right decision! Darla specifically tailored our playlist to our music style/ wedding vibe, and had so many creative ideas along the way to make our day special. My husband and I have had so many compliments on our DJ from our wedding day and I have even recommended her to a few friends who are getting married soon! We got married at the Firestone Vineyard in Los Olivos and she seamlessly set up on the Mesa lawn with a generator as well as at the reception with all electricals provided. She is a true professional and we are so happy with our choice!

  • You know when you go to a wedding and there are at least a few awkward lulls when no one is really on the dance floor... yeah, that didn't happen for us. DJ Darla Bea is magic. She kept the energy up and guests engaged the entire time. So many people told us how fun the music/dancing was. DJ Darla Bea made the entire process from start to finish so so easy, staying on our timeline and didn't miss a beat. We love her and would recommend her to anyone!
