    Tend to want to focus on what’s hot that particular week on the radio. They play the same 20 songs every weekend regardless of your age, background, number of guests or your personal preferences. They don’t want to adjust to the needs of your dance floor. They play what they already know and would rather not learn more than a few new songs.

    The Difference and why it matters

    You and your guests will hear a wide variety of styles from Classic Sinatra to The Hottest Top 40 to keep ALL of your guests dancing. To keep everybody on your dance floor, our vocalists take your Play and Do Not Play lists as well as the list of special requests and choose the next song to play based on your preferences and how your crowd is reacting at your wedding.

SUPER HELPFUL AND SUPPORTIVE!

David’s process for getting to know you, what’s important to you for your wedding is impeccable. And DRM exceeded them tenfold. The best part was that our dance floor was packed the entire night – young and old! Everyone had a blast and a everyone told me that they’ve never had so much fun at a wedding. I attribute 95% of this to David and his band. If I had to do it again all over on a budget, I would hire David, and skimp on everything else. Nothing else is as important as the atmosphere, energy and the fun at your wedding.
Thanks David!!!!

– Kafi and Jimi Matus
