Hiring the right wedding vendors is so important on your wedding day. The DJ is responsible for keeping the flow of the whole event.
It gives us great pleasure to introduce this week’s venue spotlight, Danny Garcia of DJ Danny Garcia.
When people ask “what do you do?” how do you answer?
I’m a DJ that brings HIGH energy and fun entertainment to the big day! I also have photo booths and can supply alcohol and/or bartenders.
What did you do before you did this?
I’ve always been a DJ. I did nightclubs in Downtown Orlando 4-6 nights a week from 2009-2016. I also worked as General Manager at Pat’s Liquor for 6 years.
When and how did you get into the wedding industry?
I just stumbled into it. I started Djing in 2009 in the nightclub industry and started doing weddings in 2016. I really enjoyed it and I worked hard and converted from being a club DJ to a wedding DJ.
What is your favorite thing about what you do? What’s your WHY?
My favorite thing about what I do is being able to create memories with music! I love seeing people dance and sing with big smiles on their faces. I love music and I truly love what I do.
What is the best compliment you’ve received from your clients?
The best compliment I’ve had is after a wedding, the whole crowd was chanting my name. That to me was an amazing feeling, everyone was coming up to me, giving me hugs, expressing how much fun they had.
What is the most unique service/product you offer?
The most unique service that I offer is alcohol supply and delivery.
What types of events do you specialize in?
I specialize in “mixed-cultural” events. I do a really good job in mixing and blending the two cultures’ music together.
What makes your business stand out from others in your category?
If you look at my equipment, my DJ booth, my setup, you’ll notice it’s a lot different than a lot of the other DJ companies. But even more unique is my style of how I mix music and control a crowd.
Tell us about your favorite type of engaged couple.
My favorite types of engaged couples are FUN ones that prioritize music!
Why do couples hire you?
I feel like couples hire me because of my personality and skill set.
What does your most popular package include? Tell us briefly about some of your package options. What is the price range for these packages?
My most popular package includes music and equipment for a ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. It also includes uplighting and monogram. My price range is $895-$1,800.
Why do you think your business is successful?
I think my business is successful because I absolutely love what I do. When you love what you do, you’ll always give it 110%.
What is your best piece of advice for brides or grooms?
Prioritize your DJ! The DJ makes or breaks the party, so make sure you are choosing a DJ that you’re comfortable with. Make sure they have great equipment and be sure to read their reviews. I would even recommend adding them on social media and checking out their stories on the weekends.
Name a unique venue that you enjoy working at and why.
Paradise Cove – This venue is awesome because it gives you “beach” vibes in the middle of Central Florida. In my opinion, it’s one of the most unique venues in Orlando. Love that the groom and the groomsmen can come in via boat entrance!
What some of their previous couples had to say….
“DJ Danny!!! He was perfect. We had so many of our guests talk to us about him and tell us how much they loved him! He was a great MC and an even better DJ! He provided great music of all genres that appealed to everyone (of all ages). We had so much fun and wish we could do it all over again. He was also very easy to get a hold of during the wedding planning process and the days leading up, his availability was very flexible and he was always there to answer all our questions. Much love Danny!” – Amanda, Crystal Ballroom Metrowest
“We were fortunate enough to stumble onto Danny while searching for a beverage vendor for our wedding, and couldn’t have been any luckier! Danny was extremely user-friendly and professional throughout the entire wedding experience and helped my wife and me to figure out exactly what we wanted our wedding to look and sound like. Should we ever require a DJ again, he will absolutely be at the top of our list. He was efficient during his set-up and tear down, professional and tactful in all of his interactions with our guests, and skilled in “reading the room” during the dancing portion of our reception. We strongly recommend him to anyone searching for a DJ for their events!” – Stephen, Venue 1902
“DJ Danny was AMAZING!!!!! He is so professional, caring and was very attentive to our questions and requests. He made our special day even grander!! To having our guests dancing all night, for being such a great MC and we cannot forget to mention the amazing photo booth!! Everything ran so smoothly and perfect! We were so happy with his services and we recommend him for every event! Thank you, DJ Danny! You are the best!” – Mr. & Mrs. Genao, Winter Park Farmer’s Market
