  • When my wife and I were planning our wedding, I told her the only thing that mattered to me was tearing up the dance floor with our friends and family. On the day of our wedding that’s exactly what happened - all of course, thanks to John. He made the night one to remember. To start, John was timely with all forms of communication. His demeanor was always friendly and professional. He gave us access to his online planning tools which made music selection for the ceremony and reception much easier. He also met us in person a couple of days before our wedding to smooth out any loose ends. Our ceremony was at Carmel Beach and John did a fantastic job setting everything up. While it was slightly windy, nobody had an issue with hearing our officiant and our vows. After our procession he immediately left to head to our reception space in Carmel Valley (20 minutes away). Not to mention, parking can be challenging at the beach so we were thoroughly impressed with his transition time... Read more

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Michael. I really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience. I'm glad that you and Rebecca were able to enjoy your reception dancing with friends and family because that's what you wanted. I'd love to play for you again in the future. Again, thank you for such kind words and for Monterey DJ! I consider myself lucky for clients like you and look forward to working with you again in the future!

  • I’m very happy with the service that Monterey DJ provided at my wedding. The DJ, John Upshaw did a fantastic job and was very easy to work with. He was very accommodating, did a fantastic job setting up in two locations for my wedding ceremony & reception. He was very friendly and played everything that we picked out and did a great job mixing it up for everyone’s enjoyment.

  • The music at my wedding reception had the guests’ attention from beginning to end. Whether they were finding their seat, waiting in line for food/eating, or dancing, my guests enjoyed every song. My wedding has been called the wedding of 2019.

    Thank you for the AMAZING review, Ashley. It's definitely the music that sets wedding receptions apart. WIth your and Odel's musical taste we were able to keep your 200+ guest reception moving/dancing for over 6 hours. I can definitely see why your wedding has been called the wedding of 2019. Thank you for choosing Monterey DJ!

  • If I could give John more than 5 stars I would. He was professional, punctual and responsive. Did a great job at our wedding. And the dance party he threw was amazing. My friends are still telling me how great he was. I would hire him again!

  • Having John recommended to us was easily one of the best bits of advice we were given during the planning of our wedding. When people go to a wedding they like good food, free booze and great music. John most certainly provided the latter. His attention to detail and level of professionalism was exceptional. He planned our entire playlist aswell as accommodated a memorial video we had chosen to play. He then met with us to run through the order in which everything would happen the day before our event and confirmed there were no last minute changes. On the day he arrived smart and with a huge smile, clearly ready to do what he loves. The evening ran perfectly and the music was excellent. I'd also like to mention he would not let me get him a glass of wine all night, because he was working, and he "doesn't drink whilst DJing." The service he provided was of the highest standard, the music he played was seamless all night long and the manner in which he conducts business is extrem... Read more

  • We absolutely LOVED working with John & his wife. DJ for our ceremony + reception. Our wedding was in Big Sur & even after all the natural disasters John came prepared & even picked up an extra generator the day before. We gave john a playlist for the reception & just an 'idea' of what we liked for cocktail hour. He nailed everything. Played the classics during cocktail hour & dinner then a mix of 90s, country, and our playlist for dancing. He did such an amazing job & the sound quality of the mics he provided was perfect. Our guests complimented his work & he got EVERYBODY DANCING! I can't say a lot about him as an MC because we specifically requested minimal MC'ing. What he did say worked for us. He is amazing to work with definitely recommend!
