We love to make people dance and have the musical knowledge and mixing skills to keep it fresh.
Working with you closely throughout the entire wedding planning process, we like to include a meeting in advance to review event details and discuss musical preferences.
Music is available for ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and reception. After-party DJing is also available as an add-on. Light emceeing is provided, which includes announcements and introductions.

DJ Dan was easily the highlight of our wedding weekend! He worked so thoughtfully to curate playlists for three of our events, perfectly capturing the right vibe, tunes, and energy for each. The compilation of music was totally “us,” and our friends and family simply did not want to stop dancing. We gave Dan a theme for each event, and he nailed all of them! He was also very easy to work with, particularly since we had an international wedding that required slightly different equipment. Our wedding would not have been the same without him, and we would absolutely recommend MixPacific to anyone looking to hire a DJ! -Brian & Cayla

I first heard Dan spin at a friend’s wedding in LA, and I was so impressed by how he seamlessly melded so many different requests and genres that he instantly shot to the top of the list of DJs my then-fiancee and I were considering for our own wedding. And our intuition was right – he was the perfect DJ for our outdoor wedding. Not only does Dan know his music, he is incredibly personable and takes the time to curate mixes according to your tastes and requests. He’s also logistically flexible. We had our ceremony in a forested area (with no central power) about 1/4 mile from our reception site, and Dan executed our processional and recessional songs just as we’d planned, before rushing back to the reception site to start the cocktail hour music and announce our arrival. He then made sure to keep us all on track with timely announcements and introductions for all the planned toasts. And that was only half of the night. After dinner, he helped manage the sound for the live set a few of my friends and I played (after having helped us set up earlier), and then presided over an amazing dance party that some of our guests still rave about. After all that, I wasn’t the least bit surprised when two of our friends subsequently had Dan DJ their wedding – which, of course, also rocked. -Lauren & Jamey

MixPacific is the best. There is no other way to say it. Dan really brought our wedding reception to life. The music flowed perfectly throughout the evening. It set a lovely ambiance during the cocktail hour and dinner. Then it ignited the party with a perfect combination of hits and eclectic favorites that brought everyone out of their seats. We requested none of the traditional wedding songs and MixPacific blew it out of the park. In our opinion, our party would have been a dud without Dan. He is the best DJ out there, whether you’re getting married or just having a party! -Josh & Charlotte

MixPacific was the perfect one stop solution for all our wedding needs. Dan really went the extra mile. Not only did he provide the audio set up for the ceremony but he also curated a cocktail hour before moving over to handle the reception. I kept asking Dan for extra little things and he didn’t hesitate for one moment to help, even chiming in with a live “beep” effect so I could cuss during my speech and not offend my new in laws. His music was perfectly on point for our crowd and even though it was 105 degree heat, he got everyone on their feet. Thank you Dan. We really could not have done it without you. -Brendan & Taylor

I cannot recommend Dan enough as a DJ, and as a true professional. Dan emceed my wedding, and worked with my bride and I on our ceremony and reception. There was a thunderstorm about 2 hours before our ceremony was scheduled to start. Dan was not only setting up and moving his gear around in the pouring rain, but also helping everyone else make sure that everything went as smoothly as possible. He executed the ceremony flawlessly, and then transitioned seamlessly into the reception. Mixing in a perfect combination of our requests with some his own recommendations, it was a great party and a night to remember. And he was excellent at handling the speeches and delivering the announcements as well. All in all, he handled a very stressful and difficult situation with class and professionalism. Again, I cannot recommend MixPacific highly enough. -James & Hilary

MixPacific really got our wedding reception off to the right start! Dan took the extra time weeks before to dive deep into exactly how we wanted our reception to go. He planned out the music and gave us set playlists so we could figure out the vibe we wanted to achieve. When the big day came it was a relief not to worry about the music and let Dan do what he does best! The reception was even better than we expected! The music flowed perfect from dinner to dancing and then to partying like we were back in college with Dan playing all the hip hop hits from the 2000’s that everyone loved. We would recommend MixPacific for any parties or celebrations! -Laura and Michael

Dan was an amazing DJ! He worked with us at every stage of the planning process to create an environment and feel that reflected all the joy and excitement we felt celebrating with our friends and family. Dan’s taste is wonderful and we felt we could trust him to fill in the gaps of the evening – which he did seamlessly. In fact, everyone remarked at what great music our DJ played and how warm and receptive he was with our guests. Dan really knows what he’s doing. MixPacific was highly recommended to us, and now we have the pleasure of doing the same! -Amanda and Iván

We hired MixPacific for our wedding and Dan did a phenomenal job! Our main goal was for a great party, and everyone knows a great party and atmosphere starts with music. Dan was fantastic, and with an amazingly huge music repertoire, he has anything you could ask for! From classical, rat pack, bluegrass, ska, 90’s and more, he played everything we wanted to hear. He was a class act professional, and throughout the night, Dan interpreted the audience to keep the dance floor moving! The night was truly epic – we couldn’t give a stronger recommendation! -Elspeth & Beau

MixPacific really blew us away with what a fun party we had at our reception. Dan went above and beyond in delivering a raucous good time, and really did it seamlessly. At every turn we felt like he was anticipating the songs we wanted to hear, and our guests walked away raving about the music and how engaged everybody got. Everyone that came, from our friends to our families, had a great time. Put your wedding in Dan’s capable hands and you’re going to have an awesome party. Full stop. -Benjamin & Rachel

Dan is an amazing DJ! Our dance floor was packed the entire time and he kept on playing songs that all of our guests loved. For my wedding my biggest focus was for everyone to be dancing. MixPacific made this dream a reality. Dan also was a pleasure to work with and was easy going and adaptable the day of. I highly recommend MixPacific! -Sarah & Eitan

MixPacific rocked our wedding! Dan helped us navigate our musical tastes creating an AWESOME playlist for our reception, not to mention keeping us on track with his MC skills. Guests loved it and we loved it! Would definitely book him again!!! -Andrew & Lydia
Christine & Chris H. (Boston MA)
For my wedding, the most important thing for me was that everyone had a great time. People are still talking about how much fun they had, and Dan played a huge role in that. The dance floor was packed the whole time he was playing. I didn’t ask for anything specific, but I felt like he had a good idea of what we were looking for. I never would have thought to suggest some of the songs he played, but everything flowed so great and was so perfect to keep everyone dancing. Definitely recommend MixPacific for your wedding/event! -Christine & Chris
MixPacific MADE our reception! Our friends and family are still talking about our dance floor. We asked Dan to deliver 90s hip-hop and he took us back in time for four glorious hours. Dan’s playlist was full of surprises, calling up songs that we had long forgotten about. The night was full of dancing, laughter and lots of ill-advised 90s rapping. (We booked Dan for our after-party as well, an add-on I HIGHLY recommend.) If you’re looking for something outside the box and want your reception to make a lasting impression, MixPacific can’t be beat.

Although we did not have a bottomless budget for our wedding, MixPacific made it feel like we did! We had a wide selection of music in mind such as 80’s new wave, Spanish and pop songs. Dan worked on the playlist with us and put all of these genres together seamlessly for the dance floor. Dan made an incredible medley mix for the father/daughter dance that everyone is still complimenting us on. Will definitely be booking him again!
