We hired Dave to DJ our wedding in September, he blew our expectations out of the water. Not only did he do an amazing job as our DJ, he eagerly helped organize our entire day. Dave worked closely with our officiant, our MC, our wedding party and our caterer to ensure that our day went as smoothly as it possibly could. His musical selection was great, he absolutely knew how to keep people on the dance floor and keep the party going. Dave also worked for our venue so he knew the place like the back of his hand which came in handy. I would highly recommend hiring DJ Dave for any event and i would love to work with him in the future again- possibly for an anniversary party some time down the road ;). We’ve had nothing but compliments on our wedding day with how organized everything was and how smoothly everything went and I can easily say it’s because of DJ Dave that people feel that way.

Google should consider allowing a 10 star rating for Encore DJ Entertainment as 5 stars doesn’t do justice for this amazing service.


Jon and Erin Bond

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day a day to remember Dave.

You were focussed from the beginning in ensuring all of the music (and much more!) needed for our day was planned and ready to ensure everything ran smoothly on the day. On top of your role as our DJ your suggestions and knowledge from so many weddings previously, as well as knowledge of our venue, was extremely valuable in determining additional features to add into our day!

DJ Dave also worked excellently with others in our family to also pull off some amazing surprises for us on the day which we will remember forever.

DJ Dave was available for all the meetings we wanted and all the questions we had leading up to our wedding day, as well as meeting with us for the rehearsal day too to ensure that we could build the music into our rehearsal too.

Above all, we had an amazing dance party to finish off our wedding reception that we will always remember. DJ Dave kept people on the dance floor throughout the evening and ‘read the room’ brilliantly. All of our guests also agreed they had a great time dancing the night away!

Thank you, Kristen & Alex

Matt and I had a wonderful experience with DJ Dave. Our wedding was postponed 357 days and later had venue changes. Dave was super accommodating and did all that he could to ensure us that everything was going to be perfect on our special day. The extra time he took to create flow charts, chat with us on the phone, and meet us at our venue prior to the wedding really proved that he goes above and beyond to please his clients. Dave offered advice, but also took our wishes into consideration. He aims to entertain a wide range of interests at your wedding while keeping your priorities and best interests in mind. We recommend Dave to those who are looking for a DJ who has experience and truly loves their job. Thanks again Dave!
Matt and Katie

Awesome DJ - We couldn’t meet DJ Dave by face till the upcoming days of our wedding as we live in Alberta. He was very accommodating when it came to this, we had phone meetings, he was very organized, he was a huge help and success in our big day. The MC loved how organized he was and how easy he made her job. The wedding day came, he showed up on time, was extremely professional, and was a huge help. Everyone said how great the DJ was at the wedding. (we just went home to visit and people are still talking about how great the DJ was)- and how he kept that dance floor rocking all night long... And I’m not exaggerating when I say he had that dance full all night long! I would recommend DJ Dave for any celebration, and would work with him again.
Alyssa and Alex Rubiletz

We were thrilled with the work you and Evan did at our wedding! You were professional and lovely to work with every step of the way. Every song at the ceremony was accurate, you got the timing down perfect, and were efficient in the setup and communication all throughout the planning process. I heard so many wonderful compliments on your dj-ing during our reception from our guests as well!. You were respectful of the songs we requested (and requested for a do not play list) and our guests felt you were approachable and always incorporated their requests into the upcoming songs. Everyone had a great time - you were so good at playing the genre's we spoke about prior to the wedding and keeping the dance floor moving. We are so grateful we found you for our wedding and would recommend you to any and everyone :) Thank you again for your work, it made a HUGE impact on our day. Kind regards,
Sara & Jeff Edwards

To DJ Dave: We are so grateful we are for all your hard work, both in preparation for and during the wedding. If I had to summarize how you did, it would be that you absolutely nailed it! The timing of the songs, what songs were played, and the mix between English and Spanish music was simply perfect. I think I speak for all of our guests, and I think you saw how much fun everyone was having, when I say that it was an incredible night. We will definitely be recommending you to all our friends and family looking for a DJ, so please use us as a reference. We would be happy to anyone what a great job you did at our wedding. Best of luck with everything in the future! :-)
Jessica & Alejandro Alarcon Carrillo

Hello Dave! You can absolutely use us as a reference! Here is a little blurb for you to use as you wish.... My new husband and I are beyond thrilled with our choice to hire DJ Dave and Encore DJ Entertainment as our wedding DJ. Dave is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and organized. More importantly, in my opinion, Dave is extremely passionate, creative, open to input and ideas and very easy and fun to work with. He was a major player in orchestrating our entire day! The ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner music was exceptional. He also played an amazing mix of music that catered to all age groups at our wedding that kept the dance floor packed all night. Our guests are still talking about how DJ Dave rocked our wedding day! Thanks for adding to our most perfect day and making it even more memorable for everyone! Would recommend DJ Dave and Encore DJ Entertainment in a heartbeat!
Erin & Matt Furino

Hi DJ Dave, First of all THANK YOU! You truly were a staple in making our day the best day ever. We were just with our friends on Saturday and all they could talk about was how spot on the music was and how packed the dance floor was all night. Our goal was to have a fun wedding and you definitely helped us achieve that. Thank you for your hard work, and last minute accommodations for the rain. You definitely were born to be a DJ!
Sumur and Sante

Hi David, Without a doubt you have our permission to have us as a reference. We couldn't have been happier with the music and the services you provide. We appreciated your professionalism and attention to detail. You responded so well to the requests of our guests and your knowledge of the needs and wants of an audience were amazing. Your experience was very evident in the professional manner in which the music was presented throughout the evening. The sound was terrific the light and lazer show was awesome which added so much to the enjoyment of our guests. You were very attentive to our needs and we greatly appreciated everything you did for us, we would gladly recommend you to anyone who called and asked about your services. Thank you so much for making our special day the best ever, everyone complimented us on the dance and how much fun they had. This is a credit to you, it is easy to see why you've done so well with your business. Thanks again,
Brian and Rosie Vaillancourt

Hi Dave! We just came back from our honeymoon on Sunday but I have been meaning to write to you and thank you for doing such a spectacular job at our wedding. You were so thorough right from day one, helping us make our music selections- offering so many different options and also being totally customer focused. We really appreciated the detailed emails and itinerary you provided- you are so organized!!! Thank you for calling to confirm everything and make sure that everything was planned. The day of, we couldn't have asked for more!! You arrived early to set up- your table looked great and so did the lights. The ceremony was a hit, all of the music at just the right time- which I know can be a challenge with a cottage wedding on the lake! At dinner, the music was upbeat and the guests were enjoying during the meal. After dinner the party got started and was definitely complimented by your wonderful music choice. I had a few guests who came to say that they requested a song from you and you would often play it next- thank you for making our guests feel welcome and allowing them to have input as well. When our venue was running late, we sincerely appreciated that you were so flexible and kind to stay later with us to help the party finish off- that really meant a lot to us and was crucial in making the night work- THANK YOU so much! I really don't have enough good things to say about you Dave and I would be happy to recommend you to any friend or anyone for that matter because you offer an outstanding DJ service. We wish you all the best in your future.
Mike and Charlene Savory

"DJ" Dave, Thanks, WOW!!! for the awesome night, you guys were great. I personally danced for almost the whole 4 hours and feedback from our friends has been best wedding ever. Great job, we appreciate all the effort that went into the planning and the setup and lighting was awesome. Choice of songs kept everyone dancing as well, great choice of music. Thanks again,
Stuart & Lori Bricknell

Hi David: Many thanks on behalf of Don and I and our campers for such an awesome evening of entertainment a couple of weeks ago. The compliments about your ability to read the crowds taste in music are still coming in. The dance floor wasn’t empty once from the minute you started playing until the very last song. In fact I don’t think I’ve ever been to a dance where I’ve seen the dance floor occupied for every single song! It was such a fun night for everyone…young and old!! So much fun that we’d love to have Encore DJ Entertainment part of our Halloween/Corn roast festivities annually. I will be in touch with the exact date or dates for next year.
Don & Michelle Berry Parry Sound KOA Campground

Hi Dave, Thank you so much for everything. You may absolutely use us as a reference. Your attention to detail for both our wedding day and the months leading up to the wedding were great. The ceremony music you helped us to select was beautiful. The dinner music was great and the reception music was fantastic, the dance floor was packed all night! The music was so great; our guests didn't want the party to end. Thanks again for everything!
Nicole & Darryl Sandilands

We had to plan our October Parry Sound wedding and reception from Colorado. DJ Dave was patient and supportive and full of suggestions. When we did meet, he was extremely professional while putting us at ease. He thought of things I had no idea about and made the reception run so smoothly. Plus the music was fantastic. He has extensive knowledge and read the crowd perfectly. Everyone said it was the best music they'd heard at a wedding in ages - even the dinner music! I'm so grateful we hired DJ Dave for our reception!
Melissa Packer

Hi David, Jenn and I would like to commend you on your perfect services at our wedding. Perfect is a strong word, but you deserve it. From start to finish, you showed an incredible amount of care and attention to detail that showed how much you love your job. It was obvious to us after our first meeting that you cared just as much as we did about the importance of the music on our big day. You were confident, and you lived up to every word when describing your services. I'm a detail oriented person, so I appreciate all of the notes you took and the emails back and forth to make sure everything was perfect. As we went through the day, I had people coming up to me to tell me how great the cocktail and dinner music was. The guests wanted to know if we chose the fantastic playlist, and all I could do was point to you! Someone commented after the wedding, "that guy kept the dance floor packed from the first song to the last!" There was music to please everyone, while also keeping our personal tastes in mind. Thank you Dave, for helping to make our big day so great. As I've also seen you DJ professional events, I would and will gladly recommend you to anyone in need of DJ services for any event. Please use me as a reference anytime. It's been a pleasure working with you!
Jason Rosewell & Jennifer Garner

We'd like to thank DJ Dave for making both our ceremony and reception a wonderful experience... everyone loved the lights and music. We appreciate the efforts made to compensate for the challenges our venue presented and we are very happy to say everything went off without a hitch (except ours of course) Thanks again! It was wonderful to have you and we'd be happy to recommend you!
Adrian & Nicole

We were extremely happy with Encore DJ Entertainment services at our wedding. Initially I was concerned how the ceremony was going to work out, and if everyone was going to be able to hear everything. It went off without a hitch! Everything was the perfect volume, and our guests were able to hear everything. The music for the reception was amazing. Everyone was dancing the whole night away! Dave listened to my 'do not play list' and all the music he chose to play was fantastic! We could not be more happy with how our wedding went :) Thank you David!!
Carly & Shane

Thank you for all your help with making our wedding day special. Your advice during the planning process was very helpful and reassuring. You provided us with great ideas such as the Elvis microphone for our vocalist and speeches. What a wonderful added touch! We are very pleased that we opted for your ultimate package with the lasers, fog and gobo. It made for a great effect during the dance! We continue to hear from our guests (and friends of guests) about how much fun was had and how great the music was. Thank you for appealing to all our guests, young and old, country and city! (Mission Accomplished!).
Sarah & Ryan Mahon

Hi Dave, Thank you so much for bringing your awesome skills to our wedding! We truly appreciated the time and dedication that you showed us both during the planning stage, and at the actual wedding. Everyone LOVED the music and we are so grateful to you for providing us with the perfect party atmosphere. Thank you again so much for all the attention to detail, care and effort that you put into our wedding!
Cassandra & Jesse Jacklin

Hey Dave, We are back from our honeymoon and wanted to thank you SO much for making our entire wedding day absolutely perfect!! You are incredible at what you do and no other DJ/MC would have compared. From the moment we met you, we knew our wedding was in great hands. You made us feel comfortable and confident from the beginning and on the wedding day, you truly went above and beyond. Thank you for being so flexible and accommodating with our last minute changes. Having you and your assistants from the beginning till the end of the wedding was by far the best decision we made! Your professionalism and love for what you do is really what makes you stand out. We've been to plenty DJ'd events before and you are just absolutely one-of-a-kind!! Thanks so much Dave and your team, it was a pleasure to work with you!
Rebecca & Chad Hamilton

Hi Dave, Here is a Testimonial that Darren and I wrote for you. We are soooo thankful to you for all you done for us! Although the wedding planning was stressful at times I now miss planning it lol It was by far the best day of our lives!! A huge thanks to you for being a part of that!
“DJ” Dave, Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special! You were professional from beginning to end, and so very helpful! As a busy bride you reminded me of things that I was easily forgetting. You went above and beyond! You quickly set up last minute request from Darren and myself such as our first dance playlist. We cannot thank you enough! We had so many guest come up to us and say that was the highlight of our wedding. Thanks to you we now have over 600 views on youtube! lol As we planned our wedding from out of town you were quick to respond with e mails/phone calls. You certainty helped with decreasing some of the anxiety that comes along with planning a wedding. Many people commented on your music. One guest was quoted as saying, " I don't know where you found this D.J or the price he charged but he was AWESOME!" We had many guest come up to us after the wedding to say that it was one of the best weddings that they had ever attended. Although we knew that we had a lot of people at our wedding that weren't "dancers", you somehow managed to keep the dance floor moving; including my 85 year old grandmother who was kicking up her heels! You entertained everyone from playing newfie music, oldies, and todays top hits. I have never danced so hard! I blame you for my feet being tired and sore for days!! lol Dave, we are truly thankful and feel blessed for finding you! We couldn't have asked for more. We will definitely put the word out about such a wonderful D.J. You have our highest recommendation! Thanks a million times over! August 10 2013 wedding
Amanda & Darren Jenkins

The ceremony at Killbear Provincial Park was amazing despite the wind and rain! The music totally made me feel at ease! I appreciate the hard work you guys put into setting up the equipment so we could have music at the park. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect ceremony! The dinner music was great!. The after dinner Party music was amazing!. It all matched the mood of the night and our guests. So many guests said "This was the BEST wedding ever!". We were all so sore the next day from all the dancing we did. There was not a single moment in the evening that the dance floor wasn't hopping. Dave.....thank you so much for making our wedding so special!. You were so helpful!. We couldn't have asked for more. You definitely have our Highest recommendation and if you ever need us for a reference, we will be there in a heartbeat.
Metro & Michelle Dolnyckyj

We were very pleased with your professionalism & ability to accommodate our unique needs! Would recommend you without question to others!
Barb Kerr - Financial Consultant

Thank you so much in helping us plan our wedding day. You were like a DJ and wedding planner in one. You thought of things we hadn’t such how to place tables in order of who should eat first. You helped everything run smoothly with our ceremony. I really appreciated your prompt email responses and flexible meeting times and locations as we planned our wedding from out of town. Most importantly you had an excellent collection of lights and music. We were pleasantly surprised with your elegant DJ booth it blended right into our décor. Thank you again for your enthusiasm as you helped us plan our unique wedding day.
Sarah & Ryan

"Dave, Kurt and I cannot thank you enough for doing such an AMAZING job at our wedding. From the beginning to the end, you were very professional and ensured our every request was met. The dance floor was packed ALL night long, and I’m pretty sure we've never danced so hard at a wedding in our entire life! You have some wicked beats, we're so glad we found you! We will definitely be recommending you to everyone and anyone that will listen :)
Shannon & Kurt

Dave, you most certainly have my permission to use me as a reference for future clients, Dave, You and Peter were a force to be reckoned with. You entertained everyone, and did an amazing job of feeling out what the crowd wanted to hear. I still am getting compliments of all the music choices, and people were very happy with this service. You did a great job of keeping up with correspondence, and even did a good job of making sure you and I and Ryan had a lot of face to face sit down talks to run everything over. Your timetable of when each song and all important events was a life saver. It was good to have the reference of when everything should be running, and your helpful reminders along the night were a blessing. I'm still impressed, and would recommend you to anyone who asks for a dj. I know you have been DJing for longer than I thought, but your expertise and passion were thoroughly seen the whole night through. You and your assistant were amazing, and the set up and take down was timely and professional. I cannot get over how professional Encore Entertainment is, and yet how fun you guys are as well. It was definitely a crowd pleaser, and an overall amazing night. Thank you Encore Entertainment, and keep making people's special day even better!
Erika & Ryan Dale

Thank you so much for everything that you did on the day of our wedding and beforehand. "DJ Dave" You can definitely use us a reference as you exceeded our expectations. Everything worked out perfectly and both you and your assistant were very helpful. We also appreciated the suggestion you put forth in regards to our centerpiece giveaway. It was greatly appreciated. Many thanks again, Jon & Amy Eidt
Amy & Jon Eidt

Dave the DJ, I just wanted to drop you a quick note and say Thank you very much for DJing our (S & D) on Saturday night. We had quite a diverse crowd, and you did a fantastic job catering to everybody’s musical tastes. We heard several comments about how good the DJ was, and we completely agree. I would (will) recommend you to anyone looking for a DJ, and will use your services again when the time arises. Laura and I appreciate you going the extra mile with the lights and hazer, a great time was had by all. Thanks again Dave!, Grant & Laura
Laura & Grant Cusiter

Ryan and I would like to thank you and your team for such an amazing night!! From my flawless ceremony, there was no unexpected silent moments, the static free mic you provided. They ceremony music was perfect!! Then you were so quick to get over to the reception site for cocktail music, which I heard was great as well. Then came to the speeches and dance!! The dancing music was fabulous, and all the lights n stuff you provided for the wedding was great!! It was nice to have the dance with lots of different music genres, but also have the club feel!! In WHICH we wanted. We had 5 wedding this past summer and I must say you were the best!! - From the accommodation that you gave us, the light show and having all the up to date music. There wasn't one song from old to new that u didn't have, you had everything!! I also want to thank you for being able to provide us with local entertainment and not being robbed with the price. Ryan and I felt you were very reasonable in your quote for what you gave us!! In the future if we need any kind of entertainment you will be the one I call. We would like to thank you for the great experience, and the best night of our lives.
Jessica & Ryan Blacquire

DJ Dave knows how to keep a dance floor rocking! Our experience with Dave was nothing but positive, he was always prompt and well organized. His knowledge of music was evident immediately as he had many helpful suggestions and a plethora of options from all genres. Once the dance floor got going it stayed full. Many of our guests specifically commented, it was one of the most fun times they'd had at a wedding. Anyone who hires Dave is sure to get an excellent DJ, who knows what he's doing! Thanks Dave for doing such a great job!!
Kimmy & Seth McVey

I am still in awe of how amazing the music and dance was at our wedding reception! There were people up dancing all night that I never thought I would see on the dance floor at all. Whenever people talk to us about how great the wedding was it is usually surrounding how much fun they had on the dance floor with all the great music. Most people had never seen that much people up dancing at a wedding. I was never an organized bride and when it came to planning for the wedding, things just did not seem to be going right for me and it was very stressful! After my first meeting with you I finally felt like something was going right. Not only did you take care of the music but you helped me with an itinerary of the night since I had no clue how to organize a reception. This was GREATLY appreciated, especially by my MC. I love how you two were both able to work together through the night to make sure everything ran smoothly. We also thought we had thrown you a curve ball when we asked you to pick a mixture of country, club, and Latin music to please our guests with different tastes in music...apparently this wasn't a curve ball at all! You managed to play all the songs that we liked and somehow made it all flow. I will also never forget the tribute song you played for my grandmother. It was very special for me and my grandfather to have at least one dance together and I am pretty sure there wasn't a dry eye in the hall. I don't think we could ever thank you enough! If there is one piece of advice that I could give to anyone getting married in the Parry Sound area it is to book with DJ Dave! I can guarantee there will be no regrets. Maggie
Maggie & Juan Gomez

Hi Dave, We were thrilled with the music at our wedding celebration! In fact, we received numerous compliments on the music selection. You read the crowd beautifully, and the music was perfect at every stage of the party. You were also extremely professional and showed great attention to detail throughout the entire process. We'd be happy to serve as a reference for you, and feel free to post any of these comments on your website. Thanks again for helping to make our wedding celebration such a special day for us!
Jenn & Daniel Gorman

From the first time I spoke with Dave, I knew he would be the one to DJ my wedding. He was always prompt with responding to my many questions via email, and he made sure to assure me that my wedding would run smoothly. Dave does more than just plan your music; he helped me create a plan for my ENTIRE wedding day. With his many years of experience, Dave brings much more to the table than most would offer. This guy really knows his music! After months of email and phone correspondence, I flew to Ontario and I finally got to meet Dave at his home with my mother. He was exactly what I pictured him to be lol so friendly and welcoming, professional and prepared. Dave and I worked on my music. By the end of our meeting my day was planned, and a felt a huge musical burden lift from my worn down shoulders. I couldn't wait to hear the music I picked on my actual wedding day. Dave was kind enough to come out the day before the ceremony to help us do a walk through. If it wasn't for his direction, it would have been a disaster... Considering the wedding party (excluding myself) had spent the whole day drinking lol he somehow got them all to pay attention so everything would go smoothly the next day. The day of the wedding was perfect, and Dave and his partner really made it that much more special. They came dressed to impress, and everything went off without a hitch! I am STILL having people rave to me about how much they LOVED the DJ. Dave kept the party going all night long! There wasn't a time the dance floor wasn't packed with guests. He has a natural talent for reading the crowd that’s for sure. He knew just when to wind it down or pump it up! Dave really did an incredible job with our wedding. He is so professional and honest with great business ethic, and an incredible ear for music. Encore DJ Entertainment will not disappoint! From the bottom of my heart, I can't thank him enough. I will recommend Dave and his team to anyone who'll listen :) if you choose Encore DJ Entertainment; you've made the right decision.
Chantal & Mike Anderson

Hi Dave, Thank you so much for everything. You may absolutely use us as a reference. Your attention to detail for both our wedding day and the months leading up to the wedding were great. The ceremony music you helped us to select was beautiful. The dinner music was great and the reception music was fantastic, the dance floor was packed all night! The music was so great; our guests didn't want the party to end. Thanks again for everything! Nicole and Darryl Sandilands
Nicole & Darryl Sandilands

David Tucci, Yes you may use us as a reference on your website. David was very professional and was able to politely give us guidance with the entire structure of the reception, not just the music. He gave advice for time lines as to when the MC should be selected and music to reduce stress closer to the special day. His experience and gentle guidance was evident and blended well with the guests. He worked really well with the MC and staff at the resort. Joe and I have heard so many compliments from friends and family. David hit the mark with the dinner music and had so many people of such a variety of ages up and having a great time. One guest in particular who plays music had nothing but compliments for David. He noted that the DJ used the appropriate equipment to his professional demeanour. We had such a great wedding day and David added just that something special for the night. He is very approachable and is really good at what he does - delivering a wonderful evening of fun.
