Amazing DJ!

Local DJ was everything we wanted and more! First off, Tyler asked to meet us for a drink a month before our wedding to talk about music and get an understanding of exactly what we wanted. My husband and I had particular music we liked and he stuck to that all night while mixing in other music when he saw fit. We had one amazing dance party, with the kids at 5pm and later in the evening. He can take all the credit!!

On top of this, Tyler was very responsive and ensured everything was organized and ready to go for a stress free day.

I highly recommend!! :)

Absolutely incredible experience!

We hired Local DJ for our wedding in Calgary on October 9, 2022 - and it was the absolute best decision we could have made! From our first meeting with Tyler, we were in great hands. Tyler is so chill as a person, but totally, completely organized as a professional, and was so on top of all coordination from the start. In the lead-up to our wedding, as we worked through a few details (helping us find a live musician for the ceremony, and helping us figure out special music for our hora dance), he was so patient with the piles of detail we sent his way, and went out of his way to be helpful. On the day-of, Justin actually DJ’d our wedding, and got rave reviews from our guests - a kickass dance party! He read the room perfectly, capitalized on the music people were enjoying and played more of it, and snuck in all our special requests so that the whole evening felt personalized to us too. He was also super under the radar - he made the party happen behind the scenes, which was the perfect vibe. It was one of the best DJ experiences we’ve ever had at a wedding, people were dancing the entire night, and we were so impressed. Thank you, Local DJ team - we loved working with you!

Best DJ EVER!!! Our wedding was magic!

We cannot thank Tyler of Local DJ enough for the party that was delivered at our wedding this past Saturday. We truly had the most epic day and Tyler was there to deliver the music from the ceremony at 2pm all the way to last call at the end of the night. Tyler felt like a friend from the first time we met him, and by the end of the evening he felt like family. Tyler was open to playing requests but he knew his stuff when it came to creating ambiance through dinner and packing the dance floor all night long. If you are looking for a DJ look no further than Local DJ. Tyler was part of a group of vendors that truly helped to make this the best day of our lives. Thank you, Tyler!

Book Local ASAP!

When we first met with Tyler we told him we wanted the dance floor to be packed all night and he delivered! If a song wasn't hitting right he would read the room and change it to get people hyped up again. I would recommend Local again and again! Our friends couldn't stop raving about the dance floor for days! He was a pleasure to work with!

Hire Local DJ!

Without a doubt, hire Local DJ for your wedding!! Tyler managed our ceremony, reception, and an indoor and outdoor dance floor. His transition through all these roles and spaces was seamless. He did a fantastic job in the ceremony and reception – with perfect timing of all of our songs and audio. He kept the dance floor packed with guests of all ages throughout the whole evening. Our guests raved about him.
We especially appreciate the personal touch working with Tyler. He had a drink with us prior to our wedding to meet us and get acquainted with our music taste and the atmosphere that we wanted on our day. It was evident that he used his extensive expertise and passion for music to bring our wedding day vision alive.
Also, we are so grateful for his flexibility and how accommodating he was with all our changing plans amid COVID. Thank you, Tyler!

Great times!

Tyler was super responsive and professional to plan with and we had a great time at the wedding reception with his associate's DJing skills. We were given lots of support for the planning process and Tyler even helped me to arrange a surprise song for me to walk down the aisle to and surprise my now husband with. Such a great time they had to kick us off the dance floor at 2am - I didn't want the party to end!

Best DJs in the game!

If you want the best party, you need to hire these guys! They have an unreal understanding of how to read a room - no one left the dance floor from our friends to families to even grandmas! They are so professional, easy to talk to and love what they do. They made it the perfect night - truly the best part of our day - besides saying I do, of course!

Best DJ’s EVWE

We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ service to be apart of our day!

We met with Tyler for our initial consultation (who is so down to earth and wonderful) and James was our DJ who was AMAZING, we are still getting compliments on how wicked he was. Our dance floor was packed all night. He was so friendly to our guests and read the crowd flawlessly.

Great DJs!

We used Local DJ's, alternative service Good Vibes DJ Co. I could not recommend them enough. From our first meeting with Tyler, he was very thorough with the types of music we liked, but also our guest list "age" and gave great suggestions and tried to get to know us to understand our vibe. The music was great. We ended up with a smaller guest list than anticipated so I was worried that it was going to be lame and no one dancing, we also had a variety of ages. Everyone was up dancing the entire night; we were so happy. The fading for our first dance, father, daughter etc. was perfect. We received so many compliments on how great the DJ was and some were surprised that requests were taken. Thank you so much, you nailed it!

Best DJ we could have asked for!

Tyler traveled to Montana (!!!) to DJ our wedding and he was the BEST. The dance floor was full ALL night. We gave Tyler a ton of examples of songs we liked, and he took that and ran with it. I can't say enough positive things about him!

Before the wedding, he was open to hearing all about our tastes and I felt confident that he understood what we liked and what we wanted out of our wedding reception. He's actually cool and genuinely loves music, which honestly feels rare for wedding DJs. As soon as we met him I knew I could leave this in his hands without a worry. So so happy we went with Local DJ and I would NOT hesitate to book Tyler again!
