Dear Tim, Where to begin?!? The ceremony was wonderful. Everyone LOVED the music. If we were having another event, you'll be our first call! Thanks for making it a great night! Marina & Steve

         
08/27/11 Brian & Kim Nagai Wedding 5.00

Prior to choosing Tim for our DJ, I definitely did my research as there were so many vendors to chose from. I probably spent more than 3 months researching every single vendor. Having the right dj was very important to us since we knew it can either make or break a wedding. After our first meeting with Tim, we instantly knew he was perfect for us. Tim was sooooo organized! And very professional. I had an idea of how we wanted the ambience and mood to be for the wedding and right on the spot he showed us tracks and 'mashups'. He listened to us and paid attention to the type of crowd on the dance floor to make sure that everyone was having fun and dancing. Not only did he do a wonderful job with the music and emcee, the lighting was perfect. There is not one thing I would have changed. Thanks Tim!!!

         
08/14/11 Todd & Sarah Harrison Wedding 5.00

My husband and I hired Tim for our wedding and we were extremely happy with his professionalism and expertise. His guitarists Joe played the guitar beautifully for our ceremony and entertained our guests on the sax during the cocktail hour. Tim provided excellent music and flow to our reception. Our guests danced the day away during our nontraditional Sunday afternoon wedding. Our family and friends want to buy our wedding soundtrack! His company came highly recommended and I would recommend them to anyone looking for musical entertainment for their event.

         
07/30/11 John & Christina Tolpa  Wedding 5.00

You were HUGE part in the success of our entire wedding from the start of the ceremony to the end of the reception. All you did was pure perfection! The ceremony you delivered was beautiful, personal and well worded! Song selections for our reception flowed so well and kept all our guests in feeling positive. The lighting was so well done to reflect the theme of the wedding. Most importantly, all our guests noted that we had such an awesome DJ with a professional look and great speaking voice! ... I can't put into words how happy you made John and I. Tim, everything you did was beyond perfect.... The most important thing to me was that you deliver a great ceremony but you went beyond that and gave the most INCREDIBLE ceremony!

         
07/29/11 Brian & Courtney Masick Wedding 5.00

Tim was an amazing DJ who made our party come together. Both the lighting and the music were terrific and was a huge factor in the success of the evening. We had such a wonderful time at our wedding and we really appreciate everything you did to keep the party dancing. Once, the game, fireworks and dinner were over-that is when I really got to dance and of course the drinks had kicked in. The last two hours were by far my favorite part of the whole party=) Our friends and family have all shared how great the music was and how much fun they had dancing.

         
07/16/11 Ray & Julie Shepherd  Wedding 5.00

Thank you for providing your services at our wedding.  You did a great job and I received several compliments on how good you were.  Ray and I really appreciate everything you did.  Joe (Sax Player) did a great job at dinner as well and it was nice having some different background music to listen to.  I didn't really get a chance to hear him at the reception because I was only there a short time. Again thanks for everything and I'll definitely be referring you to family and friends.

Tim was awesome and the music sounded great. I got several compliments on how good he was. I felt that he kept the dancing going by playing different types of music that allowed all ages of people dancing. Thanks for everything!

         
07/09/11 Michael & Audrey Bordeaux  Wedding 5.00

So much went into planning our day that we didn't really appreciate the value that Tim's DJ skills and lighting genius would add to the event. Watching our video and going through the pictures over the last few days, we have really come to see that the work that Tim put in to making sure our "vibe" was satisfied really did make the evening spectacular. Tim...you are beyond amazing. Your professionalism and talent are without measure. Thank you for being amazing!

         
06/25/11 Nina Klein, Coordinator Wedding 5.00

Thank you so much for your flexibility and making it so easy to work with you! I know things were constantly changing and you and your team rose to the challenge and executed everything perfectly (curve balls included). As the wedding coordinator, I really appreciated the fact that I only needed to explain once what we needed to have happen and your team miraculously made it so! I was especially impressed when I did the walk through (only a couple hours before the reception was suppose to start) with your assistant and told her what the bride and groom wanted - even though in my mind there was no way for it to be done on such short notice - and your team made it happen! I know there was one issue with the darn coffee makers, but your team managed to take care of it.

         
06/11/11 Brad & Price Adams Wedding 5.00

From our first meeting with Tim, we knew he was the one to DJ our wedding. We were adamant about avoiding the cookie-cutter dance songs and when he rattled off the list of songs he'd NEVER play (i.e. Chicken Dance) We were SOLD! I'm a person who loves to plan, so seeing the superior attention to detail and organization (timelines, announcements, etc.), I immediately felt at ease. When we first met at his office, he explained all the details to us about how he chooses music, what he needed to know from us (# of guests, age of guests, etc.) in order to pick the right music. We gave our playlist a lot of thought, but Tim knocked it out of the park the day of the wedding. He played great nostalgic songs that we didn't even think to add to our list, but were the right era and genre to get everyone moving - we were blown away! He truly was the master of ceremonies that night and helped us realize our dream wedding!

         
04/29/11 Jesse & Cassandra Holman Wedding 5.00

Tim, Thank you so much for doing such a phenomenal job at our wedding. The music mix you put together at our reception was perfect. I have no idea how you keep so many genres and selections straight in your head and your system but the whole production was exactly what we wanted. Most of our guest list was made up of non-dancers but you managed to find at least one song that spoke to each person to get them on the floor at least once. My husband and I had a romantic magical evening due in large part to your ability to manage the timeline of the reception and the perfect timing to allow us to have our share of slow songs without ruining the fun for our guests. Our happy day couldn't have gone more perfectly and we were so glad to have your help in making it run so smoothly. Thank you so much, Cassi & Jesse

         
04/03/11 Chris & Danielle Waldron Wedding 5.00

Thank you, Tim, for a wonderful party. Our guests had a fabulous time and kept the dance floor packed. And the lighting was gorgeous. We would wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone currently planning their wedding!

         
03/26/11 Jonathan & Emily Wilson   Wedding 5.00

Aside from the fact that we had an outdoor area that was heavily used by our guests, the music was great, lots of dancing (even if it was just 10-15 girls), lots of fun.

         
11/13/10 Danny & Denise Davis   Wedding 5.00

I put 100% (of the success of the wedding was) based on the services that we hired Tim for. He went above and beyond, kept the dance floor full and was a true professional on the mic. I would highly recommend his services above all others.

         
10/23/10 Jason & Julie Ann Merkel   Wedding 5.00

Tim was very professional and kept the crowd interested in what they were supposed be interested in. As promised, he was 'invisible' and really kept the flow of the reception on time.

         
10/22/10 Jed & Rachelle Panganiban   Wedding 5.00

If you're considering Tim to be your officiant as well as your DJ... I highly recommend the choice! If you get a chance to speak with Tim in person, then you'll know that he's a very easy person to get along with, which translates well in his officiant capacity.

         
10/16/10 Pat & Theresa Menke    Wedding 5.00

Tim was a true professional and I greatly appreciated working with him. He gave me confidence that things would go well and they went exactly as he described. I would recommend him to anyone. Excellent guidance of our decisions, great planning, wonderful tone at the wedding. It made a big difference and we were completely dependent upon him during the event. He came through just like he said he would and it was great.

         
10/02/10 Jack & Cecilia Shelton Wedding  and After-Party 5.00

Hi Tim, You did a fantastic job and we really appreciate it! We would highly recommend you and have to friends of ours that are currently engaged. Thank you again for a job very well done! Best Regards, Cecilia & Jack

         
09/25/10 Leslie Thorp for her daughter Wedding 5.00

Tim, you did such a great job of providing songs and music that appealed to such a wide variety of our guests - from the groom and his friends loving hip hop to grandmothers being able to dance to their favorites. I think you even picked up on the idea that I wanted to dance with Chase to It's a Wonderful World. You were incredible! I was most worried about our ability to satisfy B & G and our guests who were more my age. Thanks.

         
09/17/10 Julie Halladay and Josh Gamboa Wedding 5.00

Tim, you did such an amazing job at keeping the party going! Our dance floor was never empty! You were so easy to work with and really listened to what our suggestions were and understood the type of vibe we were going for at our wedding. You truly helped make our wedding the best ever. We had so many great comments from our friends and family about how much fun they had on the dance floor and we owe that all to you. The room looked beautiful with the lighting and the gobo as well and really helped make our wedding venue exquisite. You definitely exceeded our expectations and you will forever be a part of the wonderful memories that we will always cherish from our wedding. Thank you!!

         
08/28/10 Tony & Heather Sara Wedding 5.00

Tim you did an absolutely fantastic job! I loved that everything was so well organized that you didn't need to check with the bride and groom for every little thing. Many of our guests commented on the great music and mixing you did. Everyone had a great time! I will definitely be referring you to people as soon as an event comes up. Thanks again for making our wedding so smooth!

         
08/27/10 Tim & Eydie Strouse Wedding 5.00

Tim was AMAZING!! I would attribute 100% of the success of our wedding due to Tim, but I have to give kudos to The Prado for providing such amazing cuisine and service to our guests, too! You hit the nail on the head with the services you provided. Everyone commented on what an amazing DJ/music we had at our wedding! The personalized gobo logo turned out amazing, too!!! Thank you for suggesting that detail to us. I had never seen that at ANY wedding I've attended in the past (and I've attended dozens and dozens), so it really made our wedding unique and added some great level of detail to our event. It was very memorable. The only slight criticism I have is that the sound was a little distorted during the wedding video played during dinner. I'm not sure if it was the video quality or if it was too loud and it distorted some of the songs. But, other than that the wedding video was a huge HIT!! Thank you, again, for providing such amazing services for my new husband and I. The consensus from the wedding comments was that ours was THE best wedding any of our guests had ever attended!! Thank you for contributing to the success of our special day!! Eydie and Tim Strouse

         
08/20/10 Kit & Kristin Baker Wedding 5.00

Tim was amazing. He was our officiant and DJ. Without him we would not been able to have such a successful event. All of our guests loved the ceremony and they are still talking about the music selection. Kristin and I would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks again Tim. We couldn't have done it without you.

         
07/17/10 Brent & Danelle Tickel Wedding 5.00

I just wanted to tell you how happy we were having you do our wedding!! I mean, I knew it would be great with you, but still. :) Everything you did was just perfect and exactly how we wanted....the lighting was just amazing, the music awesome....the only thing I would have wanted to change with the reception was to have it keep going and going, we were having such a fun time!! Hope everything is going well for you, and thanks again for making our wedding a day to remember!!! I appreciate you traveling all the way up there and trying out a new venue for us too...we just knew we had to have you! :)

         
07/10/10 Chris & Allison Finley Wedding 5.00

Tim was amazing. His great music kept the party going. All of our family members and friends complimented the DJ and his music selection. There were a few instances a certain song popped into my head that I wanted to hear and before I even requested it Tim was playing it. He kept the entire party happy which is difficult when the age range varies from mid 20s to 70s. He incorporated all types of music. We also appreciated him contacting us when someone adamantly requested from the "do not play list". We would highly recommend Tim to everyone.

         
07/03/10 Ralph & Beth Atkinson Wedding 5.00

Tim, in planning our wedding we met with three other DJs before meeting with Tim. It was a process to say the least - trying to find the person who will not take grandstand your event, will not bring the "cheese" factor, etc. One DJ had the nerve to tell me that it wasn't all about me. Hahaha - right!!! When we met with Tim he was professional and very organized. We were impressed. When we got down to pricing Tim was a little more money than we had wanted to spend. We walked away and said we would think about it. By the time we left the complex we had decided that it would be worth the extra money and we were right! We met with Tim a few more times before the big day. He helped us select music and was patient with me when I wasn't sure what I wanted (I am not a music person). He provided a template for the entire event, met with the other vendors to ensure everyone was in sync and the day of it was an impressive mix of music. The dance floor was packed for the entire event. He played a great mix that would bridge generations and keep everyone moving - exactly what we wanted. Thank you Tim for making our special day a success!!

         
06/19/10 Drew & Kriscinda Gardiner Wedding 5.00

We were thrilled with Tim's job at our wedding. Both Ali and I had something similar in mind for that day, and after meeting twice with Tim, he made sure everything turned out perfect. His attire, personality, announcements, lighting, and most importantly, the music he chose, was just right. We also greatly appreciated the time he spent with us a few weeks before the wedding to finalize certain music choices and plot out the reception. It helped us conceptualize that evening. Tim obviously has put a lot of thought and effort into his business, and it's no wonder why TAP is so highly recommended. We plan on using you guys for any other events that may arise in the future. And will definitely recommend TAP to any friends planning a wedding. Thanks

         
06/11/10 Erin May & Russell Mitchell Wedding 5.00

Thanks for being so fantastic!!! We had an absolute blast, as did everyone else thanks to you!!! We can't say enough great things about Tim. He is not only extremely personable, but very professional as well. I have had several emails inquiring about him, including our caterer. She couldn't wait to tell her clients about him. Thanks for the excellent service and for keeping the guests on the dance floor ALL NIGHT. We love you!!!!

         
06/12/10 Ali Snell & Chris Sillari Wedding 5.00

The energy on the dance floor has consistently been the first thing people have mentioned about our wedding. Many have said that it was the most fun dancing they have had a wedding. Hard to imagine any better reviews from guests. Thanks for making our wedding such a great and memorable experience.

         
06/05/10 Victor & Sha Fong Wedding 5.00
Thank you so much for doing such an awesome job at our wedding. We had a fantastic time, and from the sound of it, so did everyone else.
         
05/29/10 Catherine Barrack Wedding 5.00
Thank you Tim. Everything you contributed was wonderful and beyond our expectations. The music, announcements, help with Grand Entrance, lighting, were all integral to the success of the Reception. Multi colored lights during dancing - fantastic!! Thank you so much!!! Very popular with guests and many people commented on them. Thank you for prompt emails, questions answered clearly, easygoing and professional manner all throughout planning and on the day. Very pleased to recommend TAP at anytime! Best wishes to you for much continued success. Our family will always have great memories of our experience with TAP.
         
05/08/10 Drew & Victoria Gillis-Franczak Wedding 5.00
There are a lot of things that wedding couples might worry about leading up to their big day, but we knew Tim would do a great job from our very first meeting. Bottom line, Tim knows his craft. He was professional, knowledgeable, and had great suggestions on how to tailor our wedding ceremony/reception to our vision. Tim is also a rare breed - he is an active DJ. He watches the dance floor like a hawk and adjusts quickly and skillfully, he notices when guests all of a sudden begin to shout to talk, and once he has you on the floor, he knows how to keep you there. We could not have picked a better DJ for our wedding. Tim created the perfect atmosphere for us and all our guests. Simply put, he is THE man - we would book Tim again in a heart beat. Thank you for a great time!
         
05/01/10 Anthony & Bridget Gauthier Wedding 5.00
Tim, I can't thank you enough for being the DJ at our wedding. I had such a great time and a lot of that had to do with you keeping everyone on the dance floor! I was so amazed that the dance floor was completely full the entire time. There were several people that told me that they were so impressed with you, your music selection and professionalism. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding so memorable!!
         
04/23/10 Quinn & Lindsey Borchard Wedding 5.00
Tim was amazing! From our first meeting, to our countless emails, and meetings. He followed through with honesty and helpful tips to make our event wonderful. He handled all unexpected events, such as our best mans 20 min speech and our impromptu bouquet toss and made it seem they were planned from the beginning. He was a joy to work with and I would have him at all future events!
         
03/20/10 Eric & Amy Minicilli Wedding 5.00
Thanks again Tim! We are so glad Eric's mom had seen you in action and suggested we hire you! Good luck on future events and maybe I'll see you at the pool! :)
         
02/13/10 John & Brigette Vano Wedding 5.00
Loved, loved, loved everything!
         
01/16/10 Ben & Carolyn Morris Wedding 5.00
Tim was extremely attentive to our needs and helped execute our vision. He was completely on point with the timing of the events and had all of our guests dancing all night long. If we had the chance to do it all over, we'd definitely choose Tim again for our lighting and sound!
         
11/8/09 Brandon & Carly Seaton Wedding 5.00
What can I say?? Tim, you were a main reason as to why my wedding turned out so perfectly! I cannot thank you enough for being the most exceptional DJ I could have ever picked. Your professionalism was spectacular...Everything from the uplighting to the perfect timing of changing/mixing songs was above and beyond my expectations. I cannot thank you enough!!!!!!!! Worth every penny!!!!!
         
11/7/09 Elizabeth Brilliant (Mother of Bride) Wedding 5.00
Tim, if the ratings allowed for a 10, you definitely would have my vote. Your role during the ceremony, reception, and all of your recommendations were wonderful. As the mother of the bride, I was so relieved not to have a concern about anything under your purview. You were very thorough in your planning and had us address details we hadn't even thought of - which made the evening even more enjoyable. Definitely a polished production. I'm so grateful we found you through a referral who used you at their wedding. My thanks. Liz Brilliant
         
10/17/09 Matt & Sarah Archer Wedding 5.00
Tim was one word, PERFECT. From the initial meetings, set up, lighting, dinner music and speeches to the insane dance party, Tim was amazing. He has a unique combination of being both professional and fun as well as being both accommodating and knowledgeable. He listened to exactly what I wanted while giving useful feedback to some of my ideas. I wanted a dance party and got exactly that. Guests as well as myself and husband did not leave the dance floor ONCE all nigh t! His creativity in mixing songs with a innate sense of what will keep the party going is priceless. My family and friends are still talking about the music and how fabulous Tim was. I would recommend him to any bride or for any party!

 

Tim is an artist. We knew that we had some guests that would be on the dance floor all night, but we really wanted to include our guests of all ages and Tim was able to get the floor packed. That is all in the skill and talent of a great DJ and Tim was able to judge what was working and get the guests on the dance floor. He was able to stick to our original plan while incorporating the inevitable small changes that happen at every wedding.

         
10/11/09 Ryan & Jennifer Czajkowski Wedding 5.00
Not only did we have Tim DJ our wedding, he was also our officiate. He did an excellent job with both services. He is very professional, detail orientated, and easy to get along with. He made me feel at ease and relaxed during the ceremony. I would recommend his services to anyone; he definitely makes your wedding more special and memorable.
         
10/03/09 David & Victoria Philipp Wedding 5.00
Everything was great. Tim was organized, professional, and timely. The reception would not have been a success without him. Several people complimented us on our choice of a classy DJ!
         
09/27/09 Dan & Tiffany Haskard Wedding 5.00
Tim was amazing!!! Great music and great talking to crowd on mic! What a great vibe he gave the room!
         
09/26/09 Zachary & Katy Mattos Wedding 5.00
Thanks again Tim. You were great on every level.
         
09/20/09 Ji & Patti Kim Wedding 5.00
Excellent work Tim. Even though the wedding did not follow the the planned time line, everything was handled beautifully. Having relatively small wedding, I didn't think there would be much dancing but you made it work! The only minor thing I can come up with was how the 1st dance song started right away after my brother's toast. I couldn't thank him right after his toast like Chuq's. No biggie since I did it after the dances but you weren't able to read my mind there...haha. Your services don't fall on the cheap side but I feel like it was money well spent. Thanks again and good luck with everything.
         
09/06/09 Dan & Stephanie Koeppen Wedding 5.00
Hi Tim- Everything was perfect! From the wedding ceremony processional, recessional, etc. being cued at the exact right moments to the late night dance party tunes, you exceeded our expectations, as well as our guests. As an extremely anally organized person, I appreciated your utmost attention to detail throughout the entire planning process. Also, thank you for remembering to play all of the music on our list. Best, Stephanie and Dan
         
08/23/09 Linda Krauss for her daughter Wedding 5.00
How can one improve on perfection? From the moment we spoke with on the phone, right through the last dance at the Reception, you were the most professional, knowledgeable, and creative person we worked with. You are truly, the best of the best DJs in Southern California, if not the whole state! You are awesome...
         
08/22/09 Michael & Emily Deibler Wedding 5.00
Thanks for everything Tim!! Mike and I had the greatest night ever! All of our guests said they really enjoyed you and the party was fantastic! I will certainly be passing along your info to any and all of my friends that will be needing a DJ. Everything was absolutely wonderful!! Thanks so much for making our night!!
         
08/14/09 Nes & Erin Ducreux Wedding 5.00
Tim you were absolutely wonderful! We had so many great compliments about the music, I think my Mom was nervous because music was one of the things Nes and I booked ourselves but she was a total fan by the end of the night. Thank you so much for everything, you were so understanding and flexible and took the music right off our list of worries. Thanks again, we appreciate everything and would recommend you to anyone in a heartbeat. Take care, Erin & Nes
         
08/08/09 Jack & Jill Johnson Wedding 5.00
Tim did a fantastic job at our wedding. He really responded to our guests by playing what they wanted to hear. He made everything flow together so nicely...and that is not easy when you have to mix up Sinatra, 80's hair metal, the Hora, and Lionel Richie. Tim was an excellent MC and made sure everyone knew what was going on at all times. He was easy to work with, professional and extremely organized (which is a plus for all stressed out brides). I highly recommend Tim for corporate and socical events. Our wedding would have not been the same without him. Thanks a million Tim!!
         
07/25/09 Catherine Barrack Wedding 5.00
Thank you Tim ~ for a wonderful job at our daughter's wedding! The guests had a great time and so did we. Most importantly - Michelle and Daniel had so much fun at their wedding. And they enjoyed working with you ahead of time too. We will happily recommend you to others. We appreciate your professionalism and also your respect for family considerations, including the generations of relatives and dear friends coming together during one of the most wonderful peak experiences in our lives. We are all so happy that you were the DJ for Michelle and Daniel's wedding, and we are looking forward to having you back for Andrea and Gannon's wedding next year!
         
07/17/09 Rob & Rachel Woidneck Wedding 5.00
Great job Tim. Thank you very much for making our night very special. We had a blast as did all of our guests. You kept the party going! Rachel and I thought you did a wonderful job and helped make our night truly special. The Gobo looked amazing too! Thanks again. Rob and Rachel Woidneck
         
07/04/09 Lon Poliner Wedding 4.9
With the exception of the music volume being a bit too loud during dinner so that conversation was difficult, we were very happy with the professionalism and fun generated by the event. The music selection, transitions, and ability to keep guests on the dance floor were very impressive. Tim's management of the sound system for the wedding ceremony was flawless. His patience in revising the slide show for the reception was very much appreciated.
         
06/26/09 Peter & Rea Middleton Wedding 5.00

Hi Tim - I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing job at our wedding.  Music was one of the most important things for us and you exceeded our expectations.  You got everyone on the dance floor, even our friends and family that never dance.  I know it has been almost 2 months but I have been meaning to send this since we got home from our honeymoon.   Again thank you for helping to make our wedding day PERFECT!

         
06/21/09 Sameer & Alison Nath Wedding 5.00
Fabulous! thanks Tim. It was worth every penny and we really appreciated your professional approach to creating our event.
         
06/19/09 Dave & Lindsay Stump Wedding 5.00
Tim did a great job of reading the crowd and adjusting plans according to our lack of time. He had to cut some things out and made those decisions on his own which worked out perfectly. Friends and family are all saying what a great party it was. :o)
         
06/13/09 Steven & Leah McClure Wedding 5.00
Tim, I'm sorry to say, that....I have no complaints. Really, You have always told me what you needed from me, and my needs as a bride were only out-weighed by your attention to me as a friend. Don't ever hesitate to use me as a referral, your work is impeccable so all I'd have to do is be honest!
         
06/12/09 Jordan & Chelsea Abbate Wedding 5.00
Tim is an amazing DJ. Our guests were on the dance floor the whole evening! We would recommend him to anyone and hope we have an event we can use his services for in the future!!
         
06/06/09 Debbie Huddleston for her Daughter Wedding 5.00
Everyone is still talking about how great you were! You made our wedding the success that it was, and we really appreciate it. Every time I looked out at the dance floor and saw that it was packed, I was honestly relieved, knowing everyone was having fun. You are great at reading a crowd and believe me, your clients really appreciate it. (With your uplighting), the room looked amazing!! Thanks again for everything.
         
05/30/09 Chas & Felicia Turner Wedding 5.00
Tim, When Chas and I met with you, we decided we didn't need to meet with any other DJ's -- we were right
         
05/24/09 Dimitri & Kristin Delagrammaticas Wedding 5.00
Tim - we are extremely pleased with everything about our experience with TAP. From the initial meeting to the day of the event, everything was very well organized and carefully planned. You were extremely professional to work with, and we appreciated how quickly you responded to questions/concerns. You gave us complete confidence in your ability and services, giving us your professional opinion without overstepping bounds. We didn't have any questions or concerns throughout the process t hat were not addressed. Meetings were productive and very efficient, and we appreciated your flexibility with times/places for meetings. The timeline was clear, detailed, and much appreciated during the planing preceding the wedding. Everything about working with TAP was easy and straightforward. During the event, you maintained control of the crowd and kept everyone dancing without making your presence known - which is exactly what we wanted. We have received several comments after the wedding complementing how fantastic the DJ was. The atmosphere you created with the lighting was great, perfectly highlighting the features of the venue. The best way to describe our experience is that we didn't worry or have to think about the DJ at all during the event. Your organization, attention to detail, and professionalism is remarkable, a testament to the service TAP provides. If we have another event which requires a DJ, we will most definitely seek to hire you again. As far as criticism goes, we have been thinking for 2 months about what to say and can honestly say we have no complaints. We were extremely happy how the night turned out - it was exactly what we wanted. Thank you.

Thanks so much, we all had a great time! Everyone keeps telling me that they wish the night would have gone on and on they were having so much fun. I think the music selection may have been somewhat our fault! There were times that the dance floor was empty, but I think that may have been during times where you were playing songs on my husband's playlist! Other then that, I just think the night was too short for all of the requests that were submitted.
         
05/08/09 Phillip & Andrea Spencer Wedding 5.00
Awesome wedding! Thank you for everything! The music was great and everyone had a blast!
         
05/02/09 Yia Wang & Sal Alvarez Wedding 5.00
Tim was professional, flexible and knew exactly what he was doing. He kept our multicultural party on their feet the whole night, we had a great time!
         
04/04/09 Jason & Becky Abdullah Wedding 5.00
Tim went above and beyond to make sure our event looked beautiful and was enjoyable for everyone. The uplighting and gobo were amazing! We had a very mixed crowd (ages, cultures, etc.) and Tim did a wonderful job of picking and blending songs to please everyone for the entire 6 hours. Additionally, Tim was very flexible in working with our music selection (which included hard-to-find Syrian music) and made it very easy for us to upload our own songs, as well as he was willing to find songs for us. Tim was also very flexible and patient with our guests/family. Overall we received many, many compliments on the lighting and the music and heard absolutely no complaints (which is unheard of in our families)! Our event looked even more beautiful than we imagined and it was so much fun! In fact, I'm pretty sure we danced the entire evening. We couldn't have had a better DJ! (By the way, Becky's mom was so impressed with Tim. If you ever want a glowing mother-of-the-bride review, she'll be more than happy to write one.)
 
03/28/09 John & Gilda Reeves Wedding 5.00
Tim, your services exceeded our expectations! We can't express to you enough how grateful we are for the amazing DJ experience. All our guest commented on the great music selection and how smoothly the night flowed. You were a champ when it came to dealing with our rowdy crowd! I know they were a lot to handle. Thanks again and please let us know if we can help your business in any way. We already forwarded your information to a woman who will be getting married in a few months at the El Cortez. We hope we can use your services in the near future. You are a true professional! Thanks Again, John & Gilda Reeves 
         
02/28/09 Jodi Vitale for Peter & Shanna Vitale Wedding 5.00
Tim, you were wonderful. As I'm receiving calls from friends and family to thank us, I am telling them the reception wouldn't have been half as great without you. You were organized, took great control of the event and you were made me feel like you cared about the event like a good friend would have. Thank you very much. I look forward to my daughter tying the knot because I already know the first thing we'll do is call you! Thanks again!
         
01/11/09 Dan & Molly Riker Wedding 5.00
Tim was really great to work with...not only in the planning process, but the wedding was a complete success. All of our guests had a great time & commented on how fun the music was, and what a great variety it was. There was lots of dancing...it was exactly what we wanted! I would work with him again personally in a heartbeat, and will keep referring business to Tim on a professional level.
         
01/03/09 Brandon & Kendall Moyles Wedding 5.00
Tim was the best DJ we could have ever asked for! He handled our large wild guests with such ease! Nobody ever left the dance floor! We were able to stay on time and track for everything without ever feeling like we were on a timeline! His suggestions and recommendations made the event flow perfectly! His ability to work with the mood of the crowd made our wedding so magical and intimate! We cannot thank him enough for all of his hard work and time! He truly helped make our wedding perfect! We will use him for ANY event we have in the future! Thank you Tim!!
         
11/29/08 Zachariah & Lauren Tomlin Wedding 5.00

10/25/08 Tim & Ashley Anderson Wedding 5.00
A perfect job! I would rate the work done based on the dance floor occupancy. It was full the entire night. thanks for all your help. I would definitely refer you to anyone who asks.
         
10/24/08 Stan & Sandy Smith Wedding 4.875
I just wanted to say WOW, you did a fabulous job Friday night! Stan and I were so pleased with everything you did. The music was so, so fun and the lights looked amazing. Catering to an East and West coast crowd is not an easy task. I've been to so many weddings and you are by far the best DJ I've ever heard. Thanks again for everything, it was truly a memorable weekend. xoxoxoxo
         
10/11/08 Jennifer & Joe Suski Wedding 5.00
We were so impressed from the moment we met you Tim! You were professional, and extremely helpful every step during the planning process. We felt that you provided great guidance and assistance with ideas for our ceremony, and yet you let us be creative and unique by adding elements that made the ceremony personal to us. We received such compliments on our wedding ceremony, and we have to thank you for making it so special! You also did an excellent job as our DJ! You kept our guests entertained, and everyone had such a great time! We would highly recommend you - thank you for all your work!
         
09/21/08 Eric & Melissa Martin Wedding 5.00
The day went extremely fast!! Of what I can remember, your DJ skills were outstanding. The correct music was played, the sound system was top notch, and your voice was clear. You were helpful with the organization of the room and working with the catering staff. All of the events on the timeline took place and it was done so professionally.
         
08/30/08 David & Christine Paulsen Wedding 5.00

08/16/08 Joseph & Kimberly Prast Wedding 5.00
Tim, Wow! You are quite the dj. You were so professional and EVERYONE had an amazing time.

Thank you for helping make a night Joey and I will never forget.
         
08/15/08 Mark & Hanni Foster Wedding 4.78
Tim was above and beyond our wedding dj. His professionalism and personality were exactly what we were looking for. His music selection is diverse and meets every and all needs. Thank you, Tim!
         
08/10/08 Dave & Amanda Reyes Wedding 5.00
Tim did a wonderful job, everyone was dancing all night long, from the youngest to the oldest guest, and it made for an amazing evening that we will never forget.
         
08/02/08 Andrew & Monica Chapokas Wedding 5.00
We had the greatest time! The lighting was AWESOME and the timeline we planned with Tim was perfect. Planning the event from the east coast was so easy- we highly recommend Tim for any event!
         
07/26/08 Jeff & Tisha Bucholtz Wedding 5.00
Tim was amazing! By far our favorite vendor to work with. He made everything so easy for us and was super quick to respond to all of our questions and needs. All of our guests absolutely loved him! He made our ceremony and reception run flawlessly. Everything was perfect!
         
07/25/08 Bruce & Erin Porterfield Wedding 5.00
Tim, Thank You so much for the awesome job on our wedding! From the first time I met with you I knew I had booked the best DJ in San Diego and had full trust in you. You were fantastic, our special day went very smooth and I couldn't have asked for anything better! You were very prompt in returning e-mails and phone calls which is very important to stressed out brides! Everything was perfect! Thanks again, Carissa and Ryan Olson
         
07/19/08 Zak & Jennifer Rose Wedding 5.00
Tim was amazing. We loved him! I don't think I left the dance floor but once the whole night. The energy was uplifting and exciting and Tim stayed on top of the music based on the group dancing while also using our requests. It was exactly what we had hoped for. There was only one lull in the entire evening and that was while dinner was being served. Other than that it was an energy packed and emotionally touching evening and Tim ran the show. Thank you! We could not be more pleased!
         
07/12/08 Carissa & Ryan Olson Wedding 4.875
Tim, Thank You so much for the awesome job on our wedding! From the first time I met with you I knew I had booked the best DJ in San Diego and had full trust in you.

You were very prompt in returning e-mails and phone calls which is very important to stressed out brides! Everything was perfect! Thanks again, Carissa and Ryan Olson
         
06/15/08 Tito & Paula Kurday Wedding 4.875
I think we had some reservations about the music played during the honeymoon dance. Other than that it was PERFECT. We had so many compliments from all of our guests. They were pleasantly surprised to hear their favorite songs in the mix. Thank you so much for helping us create such a wonderful atmosphere for our guests. We appreciate all of your assistance in putting together memories that will last a life time. We can't wait to refer you to our friends. You are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! We are thankful that we were able to count on you. You delivered the services that you outlined and exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much.
         
05/25/08 Tim & Kathleen Young Wedding 4.875
Music volume was a a little high at the beginning of the night (early dinner part). The lighting was brighter than we expected (but we ordered the uplighting - just didn't realize how bright it would make the room). Tim met all of our expectations and adjusted lighting and volume. In fact, without him, we would have never kept to our schedule! Our guests had a wonderful time! Thank you!
         
05/24/08 Teresa Burrows Wedding 5.00
Not sure if what we had was considered overtime, but we did use Tim to set up the audio on the Star of India. I questioned the guests if they could hear everything clearly, and they all said the sound was great! Thanks so much Tim - you were wonderful. One of the wedding guests said, "Where was the DJ? I never saw him," so I guess you blended quite well. Sound during dinner was good - at a good level for conversations to be heard. Everything was absolutely wonderful - thank you so much for your close attention to all of the details.
         
05/10/08 Joseph & Michelle Fontenot Wedding 5.00
Tim was amazing! His music selections and transitions kept 3 generations of family members on the dance floor almost all night long! He met and exceeded our expectations! Thank you for making our event truly special!  Michelle and Joe
         
05/04/08 Mel & Anikka Canones Wedding 5.00
Tim - again, how many times we met or spoke to you, our words were "we love our dj!" you truly took the ambiance and mood we wanted and brought it to life! Thank you so much, you are truly amazing! Patience, knowledge, personality, professionalism, prompt service, and catering to us truly makes you the best in the industry!! Thanks again!!! Everyone had a blast!!! -an n mel canones
         
05/03/08 Brad & Stephanie Grabske Wedding 5.00
Tim, thank you so much for working with us at our wedding. You were amazing! Brad was a little hesitant to put trust in a DJ to play appropriate music that fits our taste. We both looked at each other during the wedding and simultaneously agreed that you found the perfect music blend for us. You were able to interpret our wants and needs and create a wonderful evening. I don't think I left the dance floor all night...LOL!
         
04/19/08 Jeff & Megan McHugh Wedding 5.00
Tim Altbaum is by far the best DJ I have ever worked with. I have been to a large number of weddings and corporate events and no one comes close to what he provides. From the start he was professional, fun and precise about putting on a flawless event. If you are looking for a DJ, look no further. People are still coming up to me talking about what a fantastic job Tim did. Not one person was sitting down at one point, everyone was having a blast thanks to Tim and his ability to read the crowd. The selection of music was perfect, and you really mixed it up to suit a variety of tastes. Thanks to you we ended up with an amazing party...not to mention the groom's shirt coming off for the last song! ;) We will definitely be referring you to our friends for future events! Thanks so much, Tim! You rock!
         
04/05/08 Anthony & Kelly Lye Wedding 5.00
Tim, we loved you!!! You were so imperative in keeping things on track--it is true that speeches go longer or people aren't as quick to move from one thing to the next but you always made sure we were hitting all the points we needed to. I can't imagine how things would have gone without your lead. Also, people paid us many compliments on the "cuts" you did (Alicia Keys and Cat Empire)...I really appreciate you taking extra time to make it exactly what we wanted. I would recommend you to anyone looking for your services. You are professional, fun, and very very good at what you do!! Thank you for everything!
         
03/01/08 Chase & Veronica McBride Wedding 5.00
Tim, I know you wanted some constructive criticism, but Chase and I have been sitting here trying to think of something and came up with NOTHING!! You were so great and to us, which is probably what matters, you did a perfect job! We would refer anyone to you! You are awesome!!!
         
01/26/08 John & Jordanna McGovern Wedding 5.00
Tim was incredible. Our reception was flawless and I loved the mix of music he chose. The guests danced at every song! Tim was in control and I was never worried because I knew he had it under control. Thank you Tim!!!
         
01/12/08 Drew & Jenny Knight Wedding 5.00
Tim was an amazing DJ. He helped us through the entire wedding planning process, ensuring we had planned for moments we hadn't even thought about. He had great song suggestions for every event during the night and was open about doing anything we wanted. His experience with what works and what doesn't was extremely helpful and without a doubt he was the key element in the huge success of our night. Tim did a great job of reading the crowd and choosing the type of songs that got every last person on their feet. We could not have been happier, and I'd highly recommend his services to everybody!
         
12/29/07 John & Vasiliki Lambert Wedding 5.00

We were completely happy with Tim's services, and we have recommended you already to others seeking dj services, and will continue to do so (I believe one contacted you but you were already booked). In the survey, no answer on interaction with guests because I didn't see or hear of examples of any, so no info on which to judge. Similarly, I gave a 5 on "requests" based on the pre-event planning for "will only consider requests from pre-chosen people," but not sure if anybody actually asked.

         
12/09/07 Sean & Kelly Roseburg Wedding 5.00

Tim, you did such a wonderful job! We are so lucky to have found you. Everything you had your hand in planning went as smoothly as we could've hoped for. Thank you for making our special day memorable! Kelly and Sean

         
10/27/07 Jeff Odell & Bethany Kleparek-Odell Wedding 5.00

Tim Altbaum is a necessity at an event. His style, professionalism, and performance were the highlight of our wedding. He played what we were hoping to hear and chose additional songs to flow with our style. When I had questions, he was incredibly responsive and the night of of the event, he was entirely accommodating. I planned for a long time and researched all my choices, he was the perfect choice within his industry.

         
10/23/07 Yariv & Emma Feldman Wedding 4.875

Tim was an absolute pleasure to work with: co-operative, professional, supportive and great at his job. We felt totally confident in the service he would provide and he met our extremely high expectations.

         
10/20/07 Anthony & Erica Flinn Wedding 4.875

I couldn't have been happier to have Tim play at our wedding. He did a perfect job and I received many compliments. He was great with myself and my fiancé, even when we were disagreeing about what we wanted to hear. I heard every song I wanted to. Even a few silly ones I requested. If I had to be critical of anything, maybe I would have liked the dinner music a tad bit louder, but that is only because I like all of my music loud...Maybe it would have not been appropriate for dinner. I would not hesitate to recommend Tim to anyone, and am already thinking of what event we could hire him for next!

         
10/13/07 Julius & Jennifer Zolezzi Wedding 5.00

This is NOT your "game show host" D.J. Tim is not only professional, but very likeable as well. He did an amazing job at our wedding. Everyone was on the dance floor all night AND people are still talking about it to this day! We would recommend him over anyone else...for sure!

         
10/06/07 Warren & Amy Tomlinson Wedding 5.00

Tim, Thank you so much for everything. I was impressed with you from day one when we spoke on the phone. After meeting you and hearing/seeing your capabilities I knew I had hired the BEST DJ and Officiant, hands down. The 15 months of planning my wedding ceremony and wedding music with you was enjoyable, easy and so much fun. You made every appointment seem like we were the only clients on your mind and like we were the most important. So thank you for making the planning so great. Then there was the big day.....which blew all my expectations away. We had the most incredible wedding, and it was large in part due to the unbelievable professionals we hired like yourself. I would recommend your officiant services to anyone and everyone. One of the top comments my friends and family keep telling me is how lovely the ceremony was and how much they enjoyed the personal words and touches that you added. Your officiating was perfect, we are both so happy that YOU married us. And then the dancing began. we never wanted it to end, and neither did our guests. It all went by too fast. The dance floor was packed all night long and the transition between events were smooth and natural. Thank you for running the show and keeping us in the loop on what should come next and where we were with the evening. It is really hard to keep track of everything when you are in the moment. If I can recommend you to anyone, I mean anyone.....please let me know. I can go on for hours about how happy Warren and I are with you as a DJ, a professional and a friend. With so much respect and all the thanks in the world.... Amy and Warren Tomlinson

         
10/05/07 Troy & Lisa Perasco Wedding 5.00

Tim Thank you so much for such a great job! I will absolutely recommend you in the future. I had a lot of people comment on what a great job you did. Thanks again Lisa & Troy

         
09/30/07 Sean & Brianne Walker Wedding 5.00

Tim was absolutely amazing. Without him there would have been no party! He was so calm and made the bride and groom feel so comfortable. He excited the guests with his enthusiastic spirit and excellent choice of music. The entire night from cocktail hour to the exit of the bride and groom was perfect. No one could do a better job. Thank you Tim for making our day the most memorable day of our lives.

         
09/21/07 Nate & Lindsay Banuelos Wedding 5.00

Tim provided excellent services. He kept the party going, all of the guests loved his energy, and he really knew us and what we wanted. I am more than thrilled with his performance, and would avidly recommend him to anyone who needs a DJ for any event. He read the crowd so well! He was even encored!

         
09/08/07 James & Katie Zomerdyke Wedding 5.00

Tim you were fantastic. Everyone at the wedding had a great time and commented on what a great DJ you were. I felt extremely confident in your abilities and never once stressed about the music. You were great to work with and we are so glad we picked you to DJ our wedding. I was stress free in terms of the music which was great. You are AWESOME!!!!!!!

         
09/07/07 Patrick & Catherine Okada Wedding 5.00

Tim was great and I'm so happy that he played at my wedding. Because I was sick we were behind schedule but he made everything flow perfectly and he made sure that I was well enough to do the first dance and etc. before jumping into it. I would definitely recommend him to anyone getting married or just having a party!! Thank you so much Tim you are awesome.

         
08/17/07 Ben & Elizabeth Bailey Wedding 5.00

Tim is way more than just a DJ. He helped us through the entire wedding planning process, helping us make decisions and suggesting vendors. He by far was the easiest vendor to deal with. I wish all of them would of been as professional as Tim. The promptness of his replies to emails and phone calls was outstanding. The wedding reception went well and I received several compliments on the music. Thanks Tim

         
08/04/07 Paul & Jennifer Vasquez Wedding 5.00

Tim was an exceptional DJ. My father in-law plays music and he has a hard time deviating from his equipment and set up. However, Tim made it so easy for my husband and I. Tim met with my father in-law twice and helped him feel comfortable with his equipment. My father in-law loved Tim. There was a smooth transition between the musicians and Tim. The music Tim played was appropriate for everyone. I think the dance floor was packed the entire night. He spoke well to the audience but not too much. Transitions between events throughout the night were smooth. It was a pleasure working with him. I would refer him in a heartbeat. I still hear people talking about the music and how perfect the DJ was.

         
07/28/07 Michael Haughey & Miriam Amerling Wedding 5.00

Tim did such an amazing job at our wedding. All of our guests (young and old), commented on how great our dj was, how awesome our music selections were and how seamless the flow of events was. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night! We had a great time and i know that Tim can take the credit for that!!

         
07/27/07 Bradley & Sarah Feeley Wedding 5.00

Tim, Brad and I were very pleased with your services. So many of our guests commented on how well you did. Thank you so much for a job well done and our wedding went so smoothly because of you. You are by far the best DJ, good luck! Thanks, Brad and Sarah

         
07/14/07 Cory & Michelle Ducker Wedding 5.00

Overall, Tim did an excellent job! He was very professional and did a great job of reading the crowd. He definitely made sure everyone was having a good time.

         
07/07/07 Philip & Suzanne Riego Wedding 5.00

We were so impressed and happy with Tim's service, from our very first contact, all the way to the end of the wedding night. Tim is professional, creative, friendly, and organized. He always responded promptly to my inquiries and he followed through on everything that he promised. His service/performance at the wedding itself was truly outstanding. Thanks to our joint planning and his preparation, we were able to just relax and have fun the whole night, knowing that Tim was in control! To Tim - thanks a million (again!) and to others - I absolutely recommend him for your event.

         
07/06/07 Vadid & Aimee Cisneros Wedding 5.00

I will recommend Tim to anyone, at anytime, for any music needs.  He is professional, personable, and an amazing dj.  He made our wedding day PERFECT!

         
06/22/07 Sergio & Whitney Martinez Wedding 5.00

Tim - You went above and beyond our expectations! From the minute we had that first meeting with you I was so comfortable and knew you would do a fantastic job. Your advice and suggestions were so helpful. Everyone cannot stop talking about the wedding and what an outstanding job you did! I don't think anyone left the dance floor all night! It was such a blast! Sergio and I can't thank you enough for making our wedding perfect! We will use you 100% for future events because you were such a pleasure to work with!

         
06/15/07 Jennifer James & Jason Macneil Wedding 5.00

You did such an amazing job at our wedding! Everyone is still talking about how much fun they had dancing! You really helped customize our wedding music to fit our personalities.  You made us both feel so comfortable in our first meeting with you and had great song & timeline suggestions.  Thank you so much for a wonderful job!

         
06/09/07 Richard & Kelly Mendoza Wedding 5.00

Tim Thank you so much for all you did....YOU ARE and WERE more than a D.J. you orchestrated so much for us the day of our celebration....I will highly recommend you to my friends and clients...and i was so happy we got you for our day!!!!!! P.S. my guests loved you as well!!!!

         
05/27/07 Lisa & John Meyers Wedding 5.00

We could not have asked for a better person to run our party. He guided us in our planning and helped really make everything run smoothly and without us worrying about anything. We cannot thank him enough and are 110% happy with how things worked out. We give our full recommendation.

         
05/12/07 Susan & Kevin Burlingame Wedding 5.00

Tim - You were fantastic as our DJ! We appreciate all that you did to make our reception so much fun for our guests. Everyone keeps telling us how exciting it was to hear you announce our wedding party, and they loved dancing to all the tunes, and also hearing the music on the rooftop deck. The sound (we've been told) was perfect at the ceremony location - all thanks to you!

         
05/10/07 David & Raja McMahon Wedding 5.00

Fun! Fun! Fun! Thanks Tim!

         
04/28/07 Jenny & Luis Arteaga Wedding 5.00

We want to thank you for making our wedding day one of the best of our lives. It's hard to believe it has come and gone, but we couldn't be happier with the way that everything came together. We're so glad that you could be a part of the celebration. Finding the right DJ was one of the greater challenges for us when planning our wedding. We were looking for someone young and cutting edge, but also extremely professional and experienced. We are so glad that we found you! As an emcee, you guided our guests from one important moment to the next throughout the dinner and dancing reception. Your technical set up was perfect for the venue, and it is obvious that the music you selected was a hit as our dance floor was PACKED all night long. It was such a whirlwind night that we never got the chance to say goodbye, but we want to express to you now (from our new home in Buenos Aires!) that we deeply appreciate all that you did to make our wedding so special. We will definitely recommend your services to our friends!

         
04/21/07 Andy & Sarah Szilagyi Wedding 5.00

Tim you were THE BEST.  You even played music longer than we contracted which is so awesome because everyone was enjoying the dancing so much.  I could never have asked for better music or a better DJ who knows how to work with the crowd and provide the right song for every moment of the evening.

         
03/24/07 Rick & April Giometti Wedding 5.00

It would not have been so great if Tim didn't run the show. He's truly talented at reading the crowd and we would highly recommend him. Thank you again for a fantastic time! You know your stuff! I'd refer you to everyone.

         
02/01/07 Gayle McBride for her daughter Hannah Wedding 5.00

Tim totally fulfilled my expectations, he delivered everything he promised, and then some. His interactions with our guests were above our expectations. His timing on announcements, musical arrangements and charismatic ways with our family left us feeling great pride in our event. You were awesome Tim!

         
01/14/07 Izzye & Lorye Harosh Wedding 5.00

Thank you very much, thanks to you the wedding was beautiful. You are very talented, you have a great way, in fact the best I have ever seen to get the party started. You did everything we wanted, you are the best. We hope to have you in all of our important events. Thank you very much. We would not have had the wedding that we had if you weren't part of it.

         
10/28/06 Jesse & Beth Mullins Wedding 5.00

Tim was great. I think my wedding would of not gone so well if I had another DJ. Thank you so much. I did not have to worry about anything. He took care of everything and kept the party going.

         
10/21/06 Will & Yenny Casavan Wedding 5.00

When I have been to weddings in the past, people talk about the food, how lovely the bride looks and the trashy outfits worn by certain members of the congregation. Not here. Everyone was talking about the DJ. My youngest brother, a choreographer, was going on and on. Other people who I was not aware were musically inclined were all carrying on. Seems the DJ, not the panko-crusted halibut (did you get to eat by the way?) was the major hit of the evening. Oh, the bride looked very hot too.

 

So please allow Yenny and me (sic) to thank you for putting together such a perfect selection of sounds and words to accompany the evening. Too bad we only get married once. We'd have you again. Come to think of it, stick with what you're doing for a long time so we can hire you for our kids' weddings. Nice work. Beautiful execution. Please feel free to add this to your testimonials. Six stars- five for your ability and one for the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

         
09/23/06 Ryan & Jennifer Kennedy Wedding 5.00

Tim was awesome! I could have not asked for a better DJ, and he was worth every dollar! The guests loved him, he was very professional, played GREAT music, and kept everyone on the dance floor. I would recommend Tim to anyone looking for wedding entertainment.

         
09/17/06 Eric & Tina Topacio Wedding 5.00
Tim was the best. He was a joy to work with and it was comforting to know that the music was at least one thing I didn't need to spend one minute worrying about or checking up on. He just did it, and it was exactly perfect.
         
09/10/06 Eric & Megan Hazzard Wedding 5.00

Tim was an awesome DJ. He met all of our expectations. He helped keep us organized and talked with us ahead of time to give us advanced notice on upcoming events as toasts, bouquet toss, etc. When we asked the night of our wedding during the reception to add in a Dance Off, he announced it with ease. Tim was so much fun to work with. We will jump at the opportunity to recommend him to anyone who needs a DJ. Thanks for helping to create a magical evening for us. Sincerely, Megan and Eric Hazzard

         
09/09/06 Travis & Michelle Greenhallgh Wedding 5.00

Tim did a fantastic job! He was a true master of ceremonies! He made sure that the party ran smoothly and kept us informed as to exactly what was going on. I will insist that my family and friends use him in the future.

         
09/09/06 Marcia Kaplan, mother of Michelle Wedding  

I wanted to let you know that we thought you were sensational. You provided a beautiful musical structure to the ceremony and reception. Everything ran smoothly with your help. Your "sense" of the crowd allowed everyone to have a good time. Everyone raved about "our" DJ. Thanks so much.

         
09/03/06 Brad & Kelly Weber Wedding 5.00

Tim - You're the best. We had so much fun dancing - The wedding wouldn't have been the same without you.

         
09/01/06 Chris & Lilac Stahley Wedding 5.00

Tim is awesome :-) Very professional and knowledgeable. He can read the crowd environment well. We were falling behind on time and Tim was able to fit in important events (i.e. cake cutting, bouquet toss, garter...) before photographer left. Highly recommended! Thanks.

         
08/12/06 Kamran & Saskia Lotfi Wedding 5.00

We were so happy with all of our dealings with you, culminating in the flawless execution of our reception. We'll gladly act as a glowing reference, and will certainly pass on any business we can. Thank so much.

         
07/28/06 Stephen & Ashley Puetz Wedding 5.00

Tim, you made the flow of our wedding smooth and you kept our guests happy. Thank you for your incredible professionalism and class. There was only one point during the entire night that was slightly slow before the cake cutting, where people started to leave, but you managed to get them back on the dance floor. You're a fabulous DJ and you will definitely get referrals from us. Thank you so much!

 

Update (05/28/07) - We have been to many weddings following our wedding and no DJ has even come close to your class, professionalism and talent for creating a memorable day. We are referring you to all our friends who are getting married!

         
07/15/06 Bryan & Kari Meissner Wedding 5.00

Thank you, Tim, for the best wedding reception we have ever been to! We had so much fun, and everyone, young and old, told us how much fun they had on the dance floor and what a great DJ you were. You really knew what songs to play to keep the eclectic crowd with a wide age range on the floor all night - at first, EVERYONE was on the dance floor to the older music, and by later on the younger crowd loved the more dance music and more contemporary music as some of the older crowd left. We appreciated your professionalism all night, as well as your friendly interactions with our crowd. You really kept us to our timeline all night, and knew the best times to have an event like the cake cutting, or play one of our requested songs. You also played all of our MUST play songs, and listened on a few that we didn't want to hear, and faded those out. We also appreciated your flexibility in extending our event by a half hour and then a full hour. It really allowed us to continue celebrating and dancing with everyone. Thank you, Tim, for an amazing wedding reception, and we will always recommend you for any event!

         
07/15/06 Joe & Carolina Ousley Wedding C&R 5.00

As the 'Minister' of the ceremony it was better than we could expect and then as the DJ at the reception the transition was flawless. The flow was great and NO ONE was left out. Timing was a big thing for us and the execution was GREAT. He worked with our coordinator perfectly and the event was run professionally and smoothly.

         
07/14/06 Alfonso & Annie Munoz Wedding 4.875

Everything was great!

         
06/24/06 Matt & Kate Johnson Wedding 5.00

We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Tim had great suggestions for how our wedding should flow, and it did perfectly. He was flexible with our events and allowed us to do what was important to us at our wedding. The music was all within the genres that we had requested and his selections and the order in which he played the songs we wanted kept the dance floor full all night! He was professional, skilled, and everyone commented on how well he did! Thanks Tim, we will call you every time we need a DJ!

         
06/23/06 Denise Long for her daughter Wedding 5.00

Tim thanks for your professionalism and also for taking over the pressure of not having to worry about the reception program - it was nice to be able to enjoy the party after all the preparation and planning!.

         
05/27/06 Paul & Andrea Reitmeier Wedding 5.00

Tim - You did an amazing job at our wedding. We still have people commenting on how everyone was dancing the whole night, young and old together! It was like magic! You made the party amazing! Music is so important to my husband and I, and you brought that so well as a huge part of the best day of our life.

         
05/07/06 Diane D'Alexander for her daughter Wedding 5.00

Tim was great to work with. This was the fourth wedding I ran in four years (all of my children) and the best DJ. I would highly recommend him for his professionalism, ease to work with and great ability!

         
05/06/06 Mandy & Chad Troller Wedding 5.00

We may be biased, but this turned out to be the best wedding ever! Tim is not only an exceptional DJ, he coordinated our wedding reception perfectly. We were surprised that the dance floor was always packed from beginning to end. Tim's music selection kept many generations of family and friends happy and dancing. Some of our single friends even mentioned they want to get married just to have Tim DJ the party! Fortunately for us, Tim came highly recommended from friends and our other vendors, and we highly recommend him for any party.

         
04/29/06 Rita & Ray Heaney for their daughter Wedding 5.00

Our scores above do not fully represent the level of satisfaction we had with Tim Altbaum. With dancers ranging in years from early teens to early sixties, everyone was taking part. His ability to master the evening without being overbearing, to sense the energy of the guests, and to take charge without outwardly appearing to do so were all first-class. Moreover, his subtle yet timely management of the more formal parts of the evening (introductions, bridal dances, bouquet and garter toss) were done with a bit of structure and a lot of warmth. I recommend Tim without reservation or qualification. If you'd like to hear more, just write or call. PS: The bit with the fireworks showed planning, interest, and class!

         
04/22/06 Mike & Teresa Shea Wedding 5.00

Tim did a fantastic job at our wedding! We've gotten so many compliments on how much fun the wedding was and we attribute this all to Tim. He was courteous and helpful during the planning process, meticulous in organization, coordination, and flexibility during the wedding, and most importantly, kept the dance floor full all night long! I'm a self-admitted control freak, but had no worries with Tim as our DJ. I'd recommend Tim 100 times to anyone looking for a professional, kind and fun DJ for their wedding.

         
03/11/06 Abe & Shannon Lietz Wedding 5.00

Tim, what can I say, you were AWESOME!!! I will recommend you to anyone who asks or that I can think who needs a DJ. Great job man and your expertise certainly will remain a key part of the memory of our big day.

         
01/08/06 Ron & Beth Grinblat Wedding 5.00

You were fabulous and you helped make my wedding perfect. I loved your music selections, so fun!!!

         
01/07/06 Scott & Brianna Mosley Wedding 5.00+

Tim was awesome on all levels! He made the party the fabulous experience it was. We couldn't have hoped for a more classy DJ. His ability to read the energy of the crowd and appeal to their "dancing shoes" is a great talent and was a weight off our shoulders.

         
12/17/05 Javier & Slyvia Benito Wedding 5.00
Tim was the consummate professional! He was by far, the wedding vendor that was the most reliable, flawless, and easy to work with. He knew how to read the crowd perfectly, and was seamless in his music choices and announcements. Tim was elegant, fun, had incredible presence, and got the crowd up and moving!
         
11/12/05 Justin & Sara Iacino Wedding 5.00

You were wonderful! You not only played all the music I requested but your control of the event operations/timeline was superb! Flawless!

         
10/29/05 Mailanie & Tommy Thi Wedding 5.00

Tim did an awesome job! When the timeline did not go according to plan he took control and made everything fall right into place. The dance floor was always packed and everyone has told me this was the best wedding they had been to. Couldn't ask for anything better!

         
10/22/05 Mike & Sheila Burke Wedding 4.875

Thank you for being such an integral part in making our wedding reception the BLAST that it was!! You did an excellent job of communicating with Mike and I during the event and bending the schedule to the events and happenings to fit our needs. Thanks for everything!! 

         
10/08/05 James & Jenny Douglas Wedding 5.00

Tim made our wedding day a worry-free, fun, rockin' good time! Everything went so smoothly and he did a fabulous job keeping everyone on the dance floor. Everyone keeps telling us that our wedding was the most fun they'd ever had at a wedding, and Tim played a huge part in making our reception the best party ever!

         
10/15/05 Mike & Nicole Steele Wedding 5.00

Tim, you absolutely rocked the party! Our guests had so much fun and we certainly did not want the music to end! I really appreciated the way you patiently worked with us before the event to select all the right songs for the special moments of the night. As the day was going by in a blur, having songs that were important to Mike and I really helped us focus on the moment and enjoy it so much more. Thanks! You were ultra professional and yet still a really cool and approachable guy. I look forward to working with you again soon.

         
10/01/05 Shannon & Scott Humphries Wedding 4.75

Tim, everything you did for us was wonderful. From our meetings I think you really got a hold on our personalities and how we wanted the wedding day to go. I only gave you 4's on those two categories since you played a couple of songs on our no play list :-) but it was actually great because you kept the crowd on their feet! You are a true professional, you did exactly what we wanted. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!

         
09/04/05 Megan Wallis & Ryan Samuelian Wedding 5.00

Tim - you were absolutely fantastic. You were professional in every way and we couldn't have asked for anything more.

09/03/05 Tom & Denine Fadell Wedding 5.00

Wow! Tim, absolutely the best day of our lives!! All family and friends commented...no, gushed about everything being magical! They all said the evening flowed so nicely and the dance floor was always packed! Thanks so much, you helped make this day a wonderful, lifetime memory!!

         
08/05/05 Steve & Cam Turner Wedding 4.75

07/08/05 Antonio & Michelle Cugini Wedding 5.00

Tim went above and beyond our expectations. Our wedding was magical, and our reception was incredible. The dance floor was never empty, Tim did a wonderful job in keeping the reception flowing. His music selection was perfect for our guests. People have been contacting us to let us know how much fun they had and what a great job our DJ did.! Throughout the entire process he worked with us to ensure that our reception would be exactly what we envisioned. Thank you Tim for an amazing reception.

 
03/06/05 Jen Shuttleton & Marc Nelson Wedding 5.00

Thank you for all your guidance getting the wedding ceremony and reception organized...I couldn't have done it without you! :-) The ceremony was perfect and everyone had a BLAST at the reception.

1/22/05 David & Elisa Evans Wedding 4.75

1/15/05 Bruce & Nicole Shepard Wedding 5.00

Tim, Thank you so much for your services. Not only did you do a good job (as) D.J., you are a great person. We were extremely happy to have you at our event. We will definitely refer you to everyone and if we need your services, we will definitely call you! Thank you again!

 
1/08/05 John & Laura Gibson Wedding 5.00

Tim did a great job. We had a small event but he managed to find music that kept everyone dancing. He also had great suggestions for the ceremony music. We couldn't have done it without him.

 
11/20/04 Nathan & Haley Stroski Wedding 5.00

We have been overwhelmed with compliments on our selection of music and our DJ. Your music selection was awesome. We had such a great time - it seems as if all of our guests were on the dance floor more than once.

09/18/04 Chad & Anna Boeger Wedding 5.00

I wanted to say thank you to you for your outstanding job handling the music for our wedding reception. You were so organized and so attentive to what we were wanting for our reception music. You played the songs that were the most reflective and meaningful to both Chad & I. Being that Chad works at an FM Music station, as well as many of the people at the wedding, we were very selective and knew exactly what music we wanted. We greatly appreciate you being so open to listening to our suggestions and playing exactly what we wanted to hear. At the reception you were so polite in asking questions of us and you coordinated the grand entrance, first dance, cake cutting, etc. music perfectly. You catered to the Spanish people who wanted to dance, but also balanced that with our other favorites. Tim, the music really enhanced the most wonderful day of our lives.

 
08/28/04 Michael & Lisa Widdows Wedding 5.00

Tim does it all, he is your overall coordinator for your event. He is friendly, cooperative, and enables you to completely relax at your event! Our guests loved him and asked for his card!

 
08/21/04 Craig Truitt & Sabrina Boone Wedding 5.00

07/24/04 Jason & Heather Baez Wedding 5.00+

Great job! All of the songs we requested were played and there wasn't a single thing we could possibly complain about.

 
07/14/04 Jennifer & Sven Moller Wedding 4.80

Tim did a great job changing the music when guests were not dancing. It is hard to get such a small crowd moving, but he was pretty darn successful. Thanks.

 
07/10/04 Scott & Erin DeMello Wedding 5.00

Our wedding reception ran so smoothly thanks to Tim! He was outstanding and made the afternoon enjoyable for all of our guests.

07/02/04 Nicolas & Amanda Carver Wedding 5.00

Tim, you were wonderful. So accommodating, punctual, personal and the perfect touch for the evening. You were great!

 
06/05/04 Eileen Tucker (Zach & Kris Curtis) Wedding 5.00

My daughter had a fabulous wedding and reception and I owe so much of that to Tim's talents as a DJ. From our first meeting with Tim, we knew he would help us pull off the perfect day. Not having a wedding coordinator I was a little concerned about some things possibly not flowing as well it should. Tim did the pre-ceremony music, ceremony music, had the mike set up for the speaker doing the reading, and mikes for the bride and groom. Without skipping a beat, it was on to cocktail hour music, dinner music and then on to party/dance time. Tim was the perfect M.C., the timing of everything was perfect and I did not have to concern myself with any of it. Everything flowed so smoothly.

 

It's unbelievable how many guests told us that it was the best wedding they ever went to and how great the DJ and music were. The dance floor was never empty. The groom's mother, who told me that she never dances nor do her sons, were all out there dancing. The bride's family had a good time too. 

 

It was such a fun, fun time, I wish we could do it again!

 
05/30/04 Scott & Michelle Strauss Wedding 5.00

Tim did an amazing job for our wedding. He was very professional and did an excellent job of keeping everything flowing. There were people consistently dancing at our wedding than any we have ever been to. We got compliments on how great the music was all night. In addition, Tim was very helpful prior to the wedding with figuring out an appropriate schedule and choice of songs. We would highly recommend Tim to anyone considering a DJ for their wedding.

 
05/22/04 Len & Kristie Karroum Wedding 5.00+

Tim, thank you for everything! We will highly recommend you to all our friends and family. The music at our wedding was great and you kept things moving along at a good pace. You were a pleasure to work with, professional at all times - worth every penny! 

 
05/15/04 Mike & Jaime Stratton Wedding 5.00

Thanks for making our day perfect. We really couldn't have had the incredible time we did without you. Everyone is still talking about what a great time they had. Thanks again. 

 
05/01/04 John & Jessica Picha Wedding 5.00

We truly enjoyed working with Tim from Day One. Whenever we had questions throughout the process he would get back to us that same day. His suggestions & organization were great. Our wedding was just as we pictured in the way of music-thanks to Tim. I would recommend him to DJ anything.

 
04/10/04 Errol & Jessi Tosh Wedding 5.00

Tim was an awesome DJ!!! We were planning our wedding from Arizona and just knowing that he was so helpful and very quick to respond to any questions Errol or I had was really comforting. We really did not give Tim much to choose from as far as the reception goes, and told him to play what he thought would work, that was the best decision we made! He kept everyone well informed of the nights events, gave excellent explanations of all the events and played the best music! We had many compliments the following week on how well Tim did, and that in itself is a super indication of a talented, well organized, very much appreciated DJ. Thank you so much Tim for making our night so special!! Love Jessi and Errol Tosh

 
02/28/04 Benjamin & Marilyn Cuellar Wedding 5.00

Tim is an awesome DJ and he knows how to keep the party going. We were so pleased with the way he handled the crowd. Everyone told me they had a blast. There were a lot of people there and he managed to keep things going the whole time. I am glad he was there to tell us where to go, and when certain events were going to happen. We didn't have to worry about anything from the moment we got to the reception. Tim has patience and is an overall very nice guy. Ben and I like and enjoy Tim very very much. We would have him again, we look forward to working with him again someday. Thank you!

 
02/14/04 Jay & Nicole Mascolo Wedding 5.00

With a sudden change of venue from outdoor to indoor at the Hotel Del, Tim was very accommodating and helpful. Throughout the planning process, he offered ideas and was very responsive to all of our questions. We envisioned an elegant but fun reception and we were very pleased with Tim's performance. The guests sipped champagne to Sinatra, cried at the father daughter dance, and danced the afternoon away to popular modern and Eighties music. Thanks Tim.

 
01/31/04 John & Diane Criscenti Wedding 5.00

Tim is an excellent DJ, he did a terrific job on our wedding. He can definitely keep a party on the dance floor. I am still almost a month later getting phone calls telling me they loved our DJ. He definitely got al ages out on that dance floor. Everyone enjoyed the centerpiece giveaway game he did. I definitely will recommend him to everyone I know.

 
01/11/04 Bob & Deanna Haro Wedding 5.00

Great job at the wedding, everyone had a blast and it went off without a hitch! Now I see why you call yourself the Professional DJ! Thanks again.

 
12/27/03 Phil & Rowena Blauer Wedding 5.00

Tim was a blast! He had couples, who hadn't danced in years, shakin' it all day long! As a master of ceremonies for our wedding he was witty and charming - very entertaining! We are still getting comments about his incredible sense of humor and his exciting music blends. It was non-stop! Tim, we cannot thank you (enough) for your friendship, professionalism and talent! We will never forget what joy and fun you brought to our special day.

 
12/20/03 Juan & Coral Ramirez Wedding 4.875

Tim did an outstanding job at our wedding. He is very efficient and was on top of everything at all times. I felt as if I had nothing to worry about. He has wonderful ideas to share and great music to dance to. The whole night was magical and Tim helped to make that happen. Thanks again.

 
12/06/03 Scott & Pam Green Wedding 5.00

Tim was absolutely awesome! Not only did he do an awesome job at the wedding, but I called him the day before with several changes which he handled seamlessly. We had a lot of compliments on our awesome DJ and would highly recommend him to anyone. Please feel free to use us as a reference anytime!

 
11/22/03 Victor & Don-nae Leyva Wedding 5.00

To this day we are still receiving compliments on how great or wedding was and how good our DJ was. Tim was outstanding! People are still telling us how they never danced that much at a wedding. Tim kept the energy high and people on the dance floor. Thanks for making our wedding so enjoyable. We look forward to working with you again in the future! Our only constructive comment was that we were expecting Tim to be in a tux. He still looked professional, but we would of preferred a tux. Overall we were very impressed and pleased. Thank you again for everything Tim. 

 
11/21/03 Eddie & Jannet Chiw Wedding 5.00

We just wanted to thank you Tim for a job well done! We had a wonderful time, if anyone ever needs a DJ we will definitely drop your name!

Oh, my grandmother was so impressed with your choice of Ave Maria during the ceremony intro. Thanks so much for a great time!  

 
09/20/03 Eric & Lisa Herrera Wedding 5.00

Tim was great from the beginning to the end; he was a joy to work with. He was able to help us organize a stressful and potentially chaotic event to be a very pleasant evening. I was very impressed with his professionalism and quality of work. I would absolutely hire him again and refer him to anyone who is planning a wedding. To put it simply, he was very helpful in all aspects of our wedding. A+ Tim, great job and thank you very much; we truly appreciate your kindness, patience, understanding and expertise. 

 
09/06/03 Don & Amanda Salters Wedding 5.00

Tim did a wonderful job with the wedding! I don't think there is anything I could suggest to improve upon. He was great with the guests and very good with us. The music was great! I will definitely be recommending Tim to my friends! 

 
08/31/03 Aran & Melissa Richardson Wedding 5.00

Tim exceeded our expectations with everything related to his services. He was not only a perfect compliment to our wedding and all we were looking for in a DJ and Emcee but was also a huge resource for us in planning and developing a timeline of events for the reception. Every request was tended to as if there were no other clients or events going on and that made all the difference. He is a true professional in every aspect.

 
08/23/03 Doug & Kate Birnbaum Wedding 5.00

Tim was awesome! That sums it up in a nut shell. Our guests had a great time and we did too. We passed his card to friends and family. Thanks for everything Tim!

 
08/16/03 Christian & Carly Boulan Wedding 5.00

Carly and I both want to thank you for the terrific job you did at our wedding this August, 2003. There are so many "unknowns" for couples when they are planning their first wedding. We are so happy that we chose your company - we couldn't have asked for more!  Your professional demeanor, ability to get guests on the dance floor, and continual effort at making sure you were doing what WE wanted was absolutely perfect.  Neither of us would hesitate to use your service again and would strongly recommend you to anyone looking for DJ service. Thanks again,Christian and Carly

 
08/08/03 Eric & Stacey Ortega Wedding 5.00

Tim, you rock! Our wedding reception could have been some boring, formal affair...ugh! But you, you have the awesome ability to bring out the party-goer in everyone! The image of Grandma Japan grinding with Uncle Tom while Cousin Steven "vogue's" in the distance - that's making family history!

 

Thank You For The Best Party This Family's Ever Experienced!

 
08/01/03 Charles & Amber Wood Wedding 5.00

DJ Tim was amazing! He was the one vendor I had absolute faith in. I was thrilled when we were able to book him! He was actually the only DJ we interviewed but we totally knew he was "the one" based on how he related to us and how professional he was. His response time to email is incredible! I knew the guests would love him and they totally did. He kept everybody dancing until the very end. What I especially appreciated was his quick checks prior to any events during the reception. He always made sure we were ready for what was coming. It was totally obvious that his primary objective that night was to make sure that our evening was perfect...and it so was thanks in no small part to DJ Tim! Thanks a million! You rock!

 
07/20/03 Ofer & Elizabeth Estline Wedding 4.875

Everything worked out great, even my dad was dancing which was a first! (Tim) did a great job with the song choices even though we were worried about it up until that day! Thanks for helping everything run smoothly.

 
07/13/03 Bo & Brittney Molcznik Wedding 5.00

Tim was awesome! I don't think the ranting & raving will ever end - all our guests were happy & pleased, as well as ourselves. He really handled everything awesomely! You went with the flow and made all the events happen smoothly & perfectly! Thanks for your time & talents! I can't wait to use you/refer you again!

 
07/12/03 Jeff & Jennifer Oesterblad Wedding 5.00

Tim did an astounding job as the DJ for our wedding reception. Not only did he play music to our specifications, he also guided us throughout the night. Somehow he got nearly everyone to participate in our special day. I would highly recommend Tim to anyone needing a DJ. Thanks again Tim!

 
07/05/03 Lisa Daniels & Mark Condon Wedding 5.00

Tim is a courteous, affable, articulate, engaging D.J. who is an excellent problem solver - and above all - very professional. I loved having him as my D.J., as did our guests (my aunt offered to fly him to North Carolina for (her) next event). We love you Tim and know you will find continued success. Hope you 're free for our 1 year anniversary party!

 
06/07/03 Brandon & Amy Smith Wedding 5.00

Tim was flexible & easy to work with! Unlike other D.J.'s I have seen & worked with he did not have a hidden agenda or plan for our event. When it came to the day of our wedding, despite the hurdles he was flexible, fun & professional.

 
04/27/03 Joe & Susan Vieira Wedding 5.00

Tim was a super DJ! He was always checking to see if we needed anything and was always right on time and just made our reception and ceremony perfect with his timing and professionalism. I will highly recommend him for friends and anyone who has a wedding coming up. He is a super guy with a super style and great rates! Thanks again Tim, you're awesome!

 
03/22/03 William & Jessica Gilbert Wedding 4.75

Tim was great, he handled himself and our reception well...Thanks Tim, you did a wonderful job!!

 
01/18/03 Andy & Jennifer Cruz Wedding 5.00

Tim really made our ceremony and reception spectacular. Everything ran smooth and nothing felt rushed. I will always recommend your services to anyone in need of D.J. services. Thank you so much for making our day even more memorable.

 
11/02/02 Michael & Jill Ezroj Wedding 4.875

Kevin was a great DJ. He worked hard in making our wedding a special night to remember by being nice, courteous and professional. Kevin seemed to enjoy himself as much as our guests. It was a pleasure to work with both Tim and Kevin. Thank you.

 
10/05/02 Jeff & Jenifer Tice Wedding 5.00

Tim, you did a great job! We really appreciate you being flexible and able to stay later. The dance music you played after the sun went down was great - the swing, lounge theme was good at the beginning but the change at the end was great. Everyone had a great time and loved the music!

 
09/28/02 Jeremy & Hilary Chambers Wedding 5.00

We actually chose Tim because he has become the unofficial 91X wedding DJ! Clint, from our morning show, and Robin Roth, who does middays on the station, both used Tim at their weddings, so we felt like we knew his work and both Clint and Robin highly recommended him. Also, he has good prices and we knew he wouldn't mind that we were going to be really picky about the music. Tim was always so friendly, professional, thorough and prompt about getting back to us. He played all of the music we provided for him during the cocktail hour and dinner (we were really picky: St. Germain, Groove Armada, the Scabs, Buena Vista Social Club, etc.) and then for dancing, he tore it up! Everyone was on the dance floor, and people kept saying, "I've never been to a wedding where everyone stayed until the very end!" We give Tim a lot of credit for that - it was hopping. He also handled all of the other things - our "grand entrance", the cake cutting toasting, etc. so well - we just loved his style. Not super showy and typical - he is great.

 
07/20/02 Dominick & Indira Joyner Wedding 5.00

Tim was awesome!  We had many people tell us what a great time they had, and how the DJ was great and fun!!  Thank you Tim for making our wedding a success and a dream come true!!

 
07/13/02 Dan & Monica Yoon Wedding 5.00

Tim was an excellent DJ at our wedding.  He greeted me and Dan as soon as we were inside & had a moment & he was very personable & friendly.  He read the crowd extremely well and picked songs that got even my husband's relatives dancing (not expected at all!!).  He really got the party going & played appropriate songs at appropriate times.  We have gotten several complements about what a great DJ Tim was, and we credit a lot of how much fun we all had to Tim's excellent job.  He was more than excellent.  Thank You!

 
07/06/02 Dan & Kristy Blausiole Wedding 5.00

Tim was great!  He was very flexible when we wanted special requests played, and he knew just what to play to get our guests on the dance floor!  Almost everyone was dancing & we thought our crowd wasn't the dancing type.  It was a lot of fun & everyone had a great time!!

 
05/26/02 Brian & Ronit Barrett Wedding 5.00

DJ (Tim) was excellent!  He helped make our wedding absolutely fabulous & fun.  He really listened to our requests and was the best DJ we could hope for.

 
09/22/01 Cheryl Wiseman Wedding 5.00
Tim was fabulous!  He went over and above his duties to make our wedding a wonderful event.
 
08/25/01 Amy and Chris Burkhart Wedding 5.00

Tim was awesome.  Not only a great DJ but a great guy.  He was very respectable and always had a smile on his face.  He played the perfect song for dinner (Mack The Knife).  He did everything we asked him to do and played every request anyone asked him to.  Excellent mix of music, always good on the mike.  I would highly recommend him to all of my friends and family.  Thank you so much.  He really made it an awesome day.

 
08/12/01 Stephanie and Ted Speirs Wedding 5.00

DJ Tim did a great job!  He led us through all the special things like throwing of the bouquet, etc.  He also played some really good music!  If we ever need a DJ again, you can be sure we'll be asking for DJ Tim.

 
08/04/01 Fawn and Jeremy Nielson Wedding 4.875

Tim was excellent!  He represented the company very well.  I could not have asked for a better DJ at our wedding!  Thank you for everything you did and all your help.

 
06/24/01 London McWhorter Wedding 5.00

We had an unbelievable time and Tim made our wedding that much more special and memorable.  We wouldn't have asked for a more perfect D.J.

 
06/09/01 Robin Roth & James Howard Wedding 4.875

Tim did a great job for us.  I even put up with the Michael Jackson...but never again...knowing this will be the only time I get married :).  Seriously, he did an awesome job.

 
12/02/00 Rose Sperling Wedding 5.00

We had a ruff start and the bride and matron of honor were late so it was a bit hectic.  But Tim was great, he adapted perfectly and was very helpful with getting things going at our requests.

 
11/11/00 Jeanine and Kevin Roberson Wedding 4.75

Overall, Tim did a great job.  He had a rather tough crowd - everyone was dancing, but everyone wanted to hear different styles of music.  He handled requests well, always coming to us first to clear the song.  He is very personable and laid-back.  We would definitely recommend him to our friends.  Thanks Tim!

 
11/11/00 Eileen Gertes Serrano Wedding 5.00

I want to take the time to tell you how delighted...and pleased I was with DJ Tim Altbaum's service and performance at my wedding reception at the Doubletree Hotel on September 2, 2000.  As a busy bride-to-be, I appreciated the fact that Tim (was) accessible to me during my wedding planning.  Tim was an excellent MC and event coordinator at our reception (by the way, my "special CD" worked out fine :) ).  He made sure we were happy, worked well with our photographer, was flexible with the agenda as needed, and played a great selection of music, including our requests as discussed prior to the wedding.


My sincere thanks to...Tim for (his) part in making our special day even happier!

 
05/27/00 David & Chelsea Sproul Wedding 4.80

We arrived late to the reception but he had everything under control - he also "gently" reminded us of events we wanted to do in the limited time left of the reception - he helped to keep us on track.  He is very personable, helpful, easy to talk to and picked a perfect song that we needed - we explained what we were looking for and he picked a great song.

 
03/11/00 Curtis & Yumi Eng Wedding 4.75

Tim did a great job for us.  He was enthusiastic about our event and willing to do anything we asked.  His relaxed style helped us be more at ease, knowing that if we had any last minute changes he could accommodate them.  He was a pleasure to work with.

 
03/04/00 Ali & Amanda Shapari Wedding 5.00

Tim did a great job at mixing Latin/Persian & American dance music, and would make sure by asking us if we wanted anything in addition to what was discussed earlier.

 
07/24/99 Sean & Lilly Young Wedding 4.875

Tim was so cooperative and caring.  He met with us twice always flexing for our schedule.  Having worked with a high number of DJ's in my past business I had reservations about his lack of experience but he excelled.  I will gladly recommend him in the future.

05/14/10 Allyson Wagner of ONS Reception 5.00
Tim was fantastic! Not only did the music fit the requests of our President, but he kept our guests dancing all night. When I approached Tim about staying for an extra hour, he did not hesitate to extend his services. This was greatly appreciated by me as the planner, but also our organization's President.
 
02/14/09 Erin Dial for Stephanie's 21st Birthday 21st Birthday 5.00
Everything was great! We had so much fun and were so happy with Effren and Tim Altbaum Productions. We would definitely recommend you to anyone and everyone who needs a DJ/Entertainment for an event! Thank you so much!
 
12/11/08 Sarah Moosbrugger of Active Network Holiday Party 5.00
Tim was great; with as large an event as we had and many personalities to deal with, Tim handled scuffles with professionalism and grace, and in general was just fun to have around! He worked hard to get everyone on the dance floor, and I think everyone danced until the lights came up! Will definitely consider him for future events... thank you!
 
10/28/08 Josephine Ysais of Genentech Halloween Party 5.00

Tim was great and the party was a huge success! I received a ton of compliments especially how great the DJ was. It is now considered the best Halloween HoHo yet at my company! Thank you so much and Tim is on my list for any future events. Great job!!!!

 
12/18/07 Erica Hinshaw of Estancia La Jolla Holiday Party 5.00

(Tim) you were amazing, as always. I will continue to recommend you for all of my events! Thank you very much for your help with this event. Thank you!!!

 
12/15/07 Amie Waller of Siemens Holiday Party 5.00
Everything was wonderful. Music selection was great & kept a very diverse group (of over 200) entertained.
 
12/10/05 Karissa Meyer of Smiths Medical Holiday Party 5.00

Tim was very accommodating. He played requests from our guests and played a variety of music to meet all age groups. Tim was very courteous and helpful. I would not have a problem using him in the future and/or recommending him to others.

 
12/03/05 Amye MacNeil of GET Engineering Holiday Party 4.83

Tim was terrific about announcements. He took over ushering tables to the buffet line for me so I could relax and enjoy the evening.

 
12/18/04 Nicole Miller of Anderson Direct Holiday Party 4.875

Kevin was great and the event was enjoyed by all. I would use your services again.

 
12/11/04 Heather Moxley of GET Engineering Holiday Party 5.00+

We couldn't have had a better DJ! I was a photographer at a wedding where Tim was the DJ, I hired him on the spot because I was that impressed! He is great with people, knows how to feel out the crowd and play the right music, and looks good doing it! I highly recommend Tim for any occasion!

 
12/16/01 Kristine Custodio of DeLorenzo Incorporated Holiday Party 5.00

I just wanted to take this opportunity (to) extend my sincere gratitude to...Tim for making our company's holiday party a smashing success.  I sincerely appreciate all that (he) did for us.  We all had such a wonderful time.  Happy Holidays and many thanks once again.

 
12/31/99 Dorian Sailor New Year's Eve 5.00
We enjoyed Tim very much!
 
12/18/99 Cherly Shafer of J. Mueller, International Holiday Party 4.625

Tim did an excellent job.  We were very happy with his efforts to keep the party rolling.  It was difficult at times, because people were socializing more than dancing, but he kept trying.

 
10/23/99 Bernadette Hoover Halloween Party 5.00

Tim was wonderful, he was such a help and kept things organized and on track.  He would suggest ideas, songs, games, etc. which was such a big help.  Our group was very demanding and he handled it well.  His personality was perfect for our group - it was like having an old friend there.  Everyone commented on how good he was!

 
12/05/98 Luce, Forward, Hamilton, Scripps, LLP Holiday Party 4.42

I think he (Tim) did a great job of reading the crowd and acting accordingly.  His transitions were smooth as well.

 
12/04/98 Woody Wilson of University of Phoenix Christmas Party 5.00
Awesome DJ!!!  Will definitely use again when needed.

Officiant

 
10/22/10 Jed & Rachelle Panganiban Officiant and DJ  

If you're considering Tim to be your officiant as well as your DJ... I highly recommend the choice! If you get a chance to speak with Tim in person, then you'll know that he's a very easy person to get along with, which translates well in his officiant capacity.

09/18/10 Michael & Maeghan Brown Officiant  

We thought you did a great job.  We really liked that we were able to participate in preparing the script for the ceremony.  Most of the other officiates that we met with had a pre-set script that they used for all of their weddings and that did not appeal to us.  As a result of the collaborative process, we had a tailor-made ceremony that captured elements that we wanted.  Following the ceremony, several of our guests asked if you were a friend of ours because of the personal details in the speech.  That was great to hear and was exactly what we were hoping for.

 
08/20/10 Kit & Kristin Baker Officiant and DJ  

Tim did a great job of officiating our ceremony. The assistance he gave us with writing our vows was great. He was always their to bounce ideas off of. With his help we were able to write our own vows and ceremony which made the actual event very personal. He was great as the officiate. Spoke loudly and clear. Brought some humor in just at the right moments. Our ceremony would not have been as much of a success without Tim.

 
10/11/08 Jennifer & Joe Suski Officiant and DJ  

We were so impressed from the moment we met you Tim! You were professional, and extremely helpful every step during the planning process. We felt that you provided great guidance and assistance with ideas for our ceremony, and yet you let us be creative and unique by adding elements that made the ceremony personal to us. We received such compliments on our wedding ceremony, and we have to thank you for making it so special! You also did an excellent job as our DJ! You kept our guests entertained, and everyone had such a great time! We would highly recommend you - thank you for all your work!

 
09/21/08 Eric & Melissa Martin Officiant and DJ  

The computer website is outstanding! Your help and guidance made the process very easy. I felt like I wrote the ceremony with your help, without re-inventing the wheel. I got to pick and choose from other ceremonies and make it feel like my own. I think I learned more by doing this than having someone completely do it for me. My ceremony was unique; I felt connected to it. It encompassed everything I wanted. I learned a lot about the meaning of marriage by going through the process and it made the ceremony very meaningful to us. Tim was outstanding. His pace, tone of voice, confidence, caring nature...the list goes on. Our overall experience was amazing! Worth the money! You were really flexible and so prepared.

 
09/14/08 Bryan & Angelica Linfesty Officiant and DJ  

Tim, you simply helped it all run smoothly from the beginning. Our ceremony was more than unique, you exceeded our expectations. It encompassed everything we wanted it to. Our family and friends keep talking about how they had such a loving, peaceful, fun feeling; you definitely got it right. You were very professional and at the same time relaxing and friendly. You made us feel as if we knew you for a long time and you were our best friend!  You handled both the ceremony and DJ portion with such professionalism that I don't think anyone knew it was the same person doing both. It was by far a great experience, the whole time we had a good feeling about the way you handled both the ceremony and reception; our minds were at peace, no worries. We cannot thank you enough for your great service.

 
10/06/07 Warren & Amy Tomlinson Officiant and DJ  

The planning process was easy. Seeing examples of other ceremonies really helped with finding a direction for our ceremony. Answering our wedding ceremony questionnaire was a fun activity to do and helped us put our love and feeling toward each other down on paper. It was wonderful to read what each other wrote once we were finished and now we have those answers forever to read.

Our ceremony was the number one thing people told us they "Loved" about our wedding. I attribute this to the feeling of love, commitment, friendship and family that was throughout our ceremony. These qualities are so important in life and everyone said they really enjoyed hearing about our love for one another during our ceremony.  Bringing up our family and a few personal stories were a big hit and it people could tell that you know us and had taken the time to get to know us. The things people said they liked the most were: having the bride and groom turn to the guests and look out at everyone before the ceremony began. They liked seeing our faces. Others said they loved the stories you told about Warren and I. I think those stories were so well received because they were words that came from us (on our questionnaire) and then through you during the ceremony, making it very personal for everyone in the audience.  It left people with a good feeling about the commitment they came to witness on that day. It was perfect.

Your performance was top notch. We felt you were 100% professional, kind, interested, and held a commanding presence throughout the day. Your sharp appearance was much appreciated in our photos. Our guests first met you as the officiant and they loved the ceremony and the job that you did. Seeing you later on as the DJ and the man that made the wedding run the rest of the night, just made sense. I did not hear one negative comment about this. Prior to the wedding a few of my friends and family thought it was funny that we were getting married by our DJ, but those were the first people to tell me how much they loved our ceremony and our officiant....you!!
 

We loved our overall experience and recommend you in every way!

 
11/05/06 Jason & Allison Katz Officiant and DJ  

After our wedding, we were flooded with compliments on how well you officiated our ceremony, connected with our guests, and transitioned into a DJ. Thank you for making our wedding day unforgettable. Your constant support throughout the process made our journey into marriage perfect. It was truly an honor to have you there sharing such a profound moment in our lives.
 

We'd like to express our gratitude for your part throughout wedding planning and ceremony- your thoughts, your guidance, your words, your energy, and all that you did. You took a difficult situation with two individuals with different spiritual beliefs and turned it into an amazing day where all the pieces fit together. I would recommend you to anyone as an officiate and a DJ.

 
05/28/06 Garrett & Jennifer Greeby Officiant and DJ  
You helped us get the feeling we wanted for the two of us and our guests. The ceremony was very laid back, just like us. It encompassed everything we wanted it to, even our dog Gracie! We would rate our experience a 10 out of 10; we really wanted commitment to be the main focus of our wedding and you portrayed that. Having you as the Officiant and DJ was a little different from the norm but people still talk about you! We absolutely loved everything. We were lucky to find you and now consider you a friend; not many people can say that about their officiant.
