  • 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!!!

  • 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!!

Thank you so much Darla!!

  • 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!

  • Darla was a pleasure to work with and so helpful in recommending other vendors. She really got the vibe we wanted and collaborated with us to create an amazing playlist. The party was happening from the recessional and everyone was on the dance floor for the entire event.

  • Darla's attention to detail was incredible. She had us fill out a form of preferences beforehand, while also making some suggestions of her own (which were great), and everything about the music at our wedding was incredible. She knew just what to play at just the right time, and everyone had a complete blast. She was also very accommodating on the day with her time, and making sure everything was to our request. You should DEFINITELY book her if you're having a wedding anywhere near the Santa Barbara area.

  • My husband and I got married in July 2019 and chose Darla as our DJ. So glad we did! After our first phone conversation with Darla, we knew that she was the right person for the job. She has a very professional, bright, and cheery voice which was refreshing since we were trying to avoid the sometimes stereotypical "cheesy DJ voice." Darla helped us craft the perfect playlist for pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour, and dancing. We included some of our favorite songs to give her our vibe, and she filled in the rest! Darla sets very high standards for her music selection and sound quality, demonstrated by her complimentary meetings/phone calls with us and early arrival to the venue to make sure that setup was seamless. You are in great hands if you choose Darla as your DJ. Don't hesitate!!

  • Darla really has it all when it comes to weddings! She was a true professional before, during, and after the event, making our wedding easy, fun, and perfect in every way (her 5 star reviews and numerous awards are definitely well earned). It is hard to sum up her services in a quick review, but here goes: - Professionalism: From our first meeting, it was apparent that Darla sets incredibly high standards for herself. Sound quality, song or genre choices, "banned" lists, and cohesiveness throughout the night are all thoughtfully planned out and executed. With all the craziness of wedding planning, it was such a gift to know that our DJ duties were covered without hesitation. - Transitions: She had a perfect way of transitioning throughout the evening. Starting with a light but sacred ceremony, to a young and trendy cocktail hour, to a soulful and magical dinner, to a dance floor that kept all ages moving, she was able to link each part of the night seamlessly. ...

  • DJ Darla Bea is awesome! My husband and I couldn’t have been happier with the music Darla played at our wedding! She knows how to feel out a room and play certain songs when appropriate. Everyone was up and dancing when the time came and it made our wedding that much more special to see everyone relaxing and having fun. I highly recommend Darla to anyone looking for a great DJ for any type of event! She’s very kind, easy to talk to, and timely with emails and texts. Basically anything you want, she’s there for you. She worked with me to create a perfect playlist for my wedding and she also worked with my wedding coordinator so the wedding would be seamless. And it was! Really couldn’t be happier, so thank you DJ Darla Bea!
