  • We hired Derek and his team for our wedding and boy, did we get it right! From start to finish, Derek was clear, responsive, and such a delight. He spent more than an hour with us at our pre-wedding meeting about 5 months ahead of time, and worked with us over email on a couple requests (including a surprise for my husband that we successfully pulled off!) He was an excellent MC who kept the night fun and flowing, and he also kept the dance floor full, which was really important to us. The Photo Booth and book that we got to take home THAT NIGHT were the icing on the cake :) The other thing I'll say about Derek is how prepared and flexible he is. We experienced some totally crazy weather on our wedding day (it snowed!) and we were changing plans a few hours beforehand. Derek was ready for indoor, outdoor, whatever we needed, and he had backups of all of our Ceremony songs in case our Acoustic Duo couldn't use their equipment. We were in such good hands with him and didn't have to wo... Read more

  • Lake DJ is great. Derek kept the flow of my wedding going and he communicated with us. He was quick with emails. He was able to keep all of my guests on the dance floor until the end. His wife did the photo booth which was also a big hit.

  • Best DJ in the Lake Tahoe area hands down. He is so accommodating and makes the process extremely easy. He did a great job knowing the crowd and he kept the party on-time. He had every song I requested and played them all. He went above and beyond by bringing my husband and me a drink while we were finishing up with photos. Everyone was giving my compliments on how great he was. Just a really awesome guy. Hire him!

  • Hire Derek!! He is AMAZING. Not only did he keep all the guests on the dance floor ALL night, but he was able to round up my wild wedding party full of crazies with a huge smile on his face! Prior to wedding day, Derek was quick to answer the phone and answer my questions, I also spoke with his wife on one phone call and had an amazing conversation, she was calm and mellow and really was interested in what I was saying. A TON of my wedding guests said that Derek was one of the best DJS they have seen/heard at a wedding! THANK YOU, Derek, for being sooo amazing.

  • Derek is awesome! He just DJ my wedding a couple of weeks ago and he was fantastic. He was great on keeping the wedding going and not get sidetracked by other things going on. He was funny and had a great sense of humor and played great music!

  • Derek was absolutely amazing. He was always readily available to answer any questions. He is genuine, charismatic and made our wedding day so so special. He really knows how to get the guests on the dance floor! Thank you for keeping me calm and reminding me that our wedding day is about US and following through with every little detail. I'd recommend Derek and his wife to anyone. Thank you one million times!

  • We hired Derek to be the DJ at my daughter and son in laws wedding in Lake Tahoe, June of 2017. Derek was absolutely fabulous in every aspect of being our DJ, from doing the pre ceremony songs, to the wedding and post wedding walk, the entrance songs which were different for every person coming in to the reception and most importantly the reception and all that goes with being an awesome DJ. He has the best personality and was so easy to work with, which was key considering we weren't right in the area. He was the best at keeping everything rolling, making sure the bride and the groom were always satisfied with the music that he was playing, did every song that they requested and had all of our guests out on the dance floor the entire night. We not only had him at the wedding and the reception but he came to our afterparty and played for another 3 hours for our guests. Since it was a destination wedding for 90% of our guests, we wanted to make sure they had a great time af... Read more

  • Derek was incredible! We were from out of town and were having to do everything over email. He edited a song for me that meant a lot and that turned out perfect! He was perfect at making the ceremony flow into the reception. He made everyone feel comfortable and was just an amazing human to work with. He was very upbeat and friendly. He kept everything professional but very comfortable for my guests as well as my husband and I. There were so many special memories on our day and Derek was the perfect narrator for each and every part.

  • We booked Derek for our wedding on October 23, 2016 in South Lake Tahoe. Going in we had no idea what to expect, as we had never met Derek in person. We live in the Chicago area and his communication through e-mails was unreal. He was able to create a solid playlist from our music preferences, keep the crowd dancing, and be mindful of the bride and grooms music choices. My wife and I have attended upwards of 50 weddings during our time together and he was hands down the best we have heard. Highly highly recommended.

  • Derek and his wife Vicki from Lake DJ Entertainment was AMAZING! He responded to all our emails in a timely fashion, and seriously knew his stuff. He was on task on the day of the wedding: he made the reception SO fun, he played our song list and kept our guests dancing! He even kept reminding me to EAT. There is so much happening on that day, and he and Vicki kept everything rolling right on time and with good energy. He also received many compliments from our guests!

  • Derek and Vicki provided DJ/MC and photo booth services for our wedding at Heavenly Lakeview Lodge on August 12th, 2016. They are amazing!! I highly recommend their services. We truly could not have asked for a better wedding and that was hugely thanks to Lake DJ. Derek is such a pro and a really cool guy. He made the entire evening run so smoothly and everyone had a blast! It was a destination wedding with 50 guests. He kept the energy high and dance floor full. Not only was he wonderful on the day of, but he was so helpful and responsive during the planning as well. He even did a few edits for our special songs which turned out perfect! Everyone loved the photo booth! We debated whether to have one or not since the wedding was going to be on the small side, but I am so glad we did! They had so many cool props and created a wonderful scrapbook of all the photos with messages from our guests. The print off was even customized to match our color scheme. Vicki is a sweet...

  • We couldn't be happier with Lake DJ! Everything was perfect for our big day! The photobooth was a HUGE hit with our guests. Derek was very helpful in finding background music for my Grandfather to sing a Frank Sinatra song to as our last dance as well. Oh! And the Emulator transparent DJ screen was mind blowing!
