"What stands out the most to me about Aaron is his genuine desire to really get to know you as a client. Being a people pleaser, I had some concerns about the type of genre that was to be played at my wedding and wanted nothing more than for everyone there to have a blast! And it was just that...a blast!
He has a special gift of deciphering what songs should be played and in a sequence that flows!
Throughout these past months, he has not only served as my personal go to for musical advice, but he has indeed become a friend and did a great job at reassuring me about my big day!
You will not be disappointed= )"
Kimberly & Brian
"Aaron did a great job getting to know how my husband and I wanted our wedding to be and really listened to everything we said. During our conversations he was able to build off whatever we would suggest (and sometimes we didn't know what we were trying to say) to make some really great recommendations to make our day perfect. I love how much he gets to know you during the time between booking and the actual day so when the big day comes you feel like it's another friend attending your wedding, not just a DJ.
I loved how much he interacted with our guests - and my guests loved that he was interacting with them. He doesn't just stand at his booth and play music, he makes sure the party starts and keeps going.
I also appreciated that when we checked in with our event coordinator he was the only vendor who had already contacted her and set up all the time/contact information, one less thing for us to worry about!
Anyone should feel confident in their decision to hire Aaron."
Ashley & James
"Aaron is AMAZING! My husband and I could not have been happier with him as the DJ for our wedding. One of my biggest concerns was having people dance. I was worried that we would pay for a DJ and the dance floor would look like a middle school dance. DJ Aaron was engaging, and he kept the party going to the very end. After the wedding Every. Single. Friend or family member we saw remarked on how fantastic the DJ was. They wanted to know where we found him, how did we luck out, if he was always so much fun? The general consensus from all of our friends and family is that our wedding was one of the most--if not The most--fun weddings they've ever been to. I know that 100% of the credit goes to DJ Aaron."
Elisha & Brian
"Curtis and I can't say thanks enough to you!! You went beyond the call when it came to the wedding. You made the night beyond fabulous!! Not to mention you got some mad moves! Thanks so much again for an unforgettable night!"
Jenny & CJ
"My husband and I knew Aaron was spectacular after we met with him for a planning session a few weeks before the wedding. Incredibly thorough with the planning process and loads of FUN, we had no doubt that he would keep our wedding guests out on the dance floor. When our wedding day rolled around, Aaron did not disappoint! As he promised, the dance floor at our reception was full the entire night, and numerous guests commented on just how awesome our DJ was. I think the main reason is that Aaron LOVES what he does, and it shows! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for any event, and are truly hoping to work with him again in the future, because as he says, once you work with him, you become part of his DJ family... and it's true!"
Paige & David
"Aaron DJ'd our wedding August 8, 2015, and we could not be more impressed. He is detail oriented and held my hand through every step of the process, and his interaction with our guests was absolutely perfect. We wanted our guests to boogie down with us, and Aaron's musical selection and timing ensured a happy crowd that wanted to dance! I highly recommend Aaron to anyone looking for a DJ!!!"
Amanda & Bo
"Aaron was AMAZING!! We cannot say enough good things about his DJ skills! Our entire wedding was on the dance floor all night and had such a great time! I don't think there was one song that was played that everyone didn't know. He was very responsive to work with and extremely organized through the entire process. We would totally and completely recommend him for a wedding or any other event. So happy with our choice!!"
Sara & Jon
"I cannot say enough great things about Aaron. He was professional, fun, entertained the crowd at appropriate times, and became part of our wedding. The week before our wedding we found out that our wedding planner would not be there. He offered encouraging words to help me through my frantic days, and became someone I leaned on through out the wedding, even for things that weren't his to have to worry about. We will definitely use Aaron the next time we, or anyone else, needs a DJ!"
Jackie & Bart
"Aaron was the DJ at our wedding on 09/19/2015. He did an amazing job on both the ceremony and reception! He was very patient with me as I was very particular about the ceremony music. Every song was perfect for the ceremony, he recommend groups for me to listen to after hearing the style I was wanting and I found the perfect songs thanks to him!
For the reception he had people out on the dance floor that I would have never imagined would get up and dance! He was very good at reading the crowd and knowing what to play to ensure everyone was having a great time! I would recommended him as a DJ to my best friend or a stranger! He was so professional, I had nothing to worry about on the wedding day. If you are in search for the perfect DJ I highly recommend Aaron!"
Martha & Brent
"We had the best time at our reception thanks to Aaron! He's a great DJ and the best decision you can make for your day! He was so helpful and truly made it a party. He takes the time to get to know you and wants to make your day the best. From reading the crowd to timing for toasts, etc., it was perfect! I didn't want to leave the dance floor! He has your back and wants you to have the best time ever! You will not be disappointed having Aaron DJ your event (wedding or other). Do it!"
Jamey & Josh
"Hiring Aaron was probably the best decision I made for my wedding! He worked well our coordinator to make sure everyone was in the right place at the right time. From the moment the dance floor opened up, it was packed: children, our peers, parents and grandparents. Aaron varied the music throughout the night and catered the music to the crowd. And joined the crowd: dancing, singing, and having a good time. It was a very dynamic mix and hit the right notes for us and our guests. Truly Aaron was involved as a friend, not just a vendor.
He was so easy to work with too. He set us up with a website for managing our song requests and offered us advice on song selections for every piece of the wedding ceremony and reception, including a few we hadn’t even thought about. He told us what we could expect, shared some stories, and convinced us to trust him. Which we did. The outcome was a very unique-to-us ceremony, and a very full dance floor!
Aaron is a true professional, and was integral to the success of our big night. I couldn’t be happier!"
Shani & Tony
"Best DJ everrrr!! My DJ is better than yours!! I bet your DJ can't do the worm! : But seriously, if you need an awesome DJ, you HAVE to call Aaron. Super friendly, dependent and SUPER fun!! He recently DJ'd my wedding reception and my special day would not have been amazing if it wasn't for Aaron Elya!! Thank you so much!!!
Mark & Kristen Allen
"Aaron ...was so fun to work with and really made my planning process so much easier than we had anticipated. He was full of ideas and suggestions that helped me tremendously. Everyone at my wedding really enjoyed the music selections and he did not miss a beat. He also helped get people on the floor and dance, which I expected to be difficult because my wedding was during the day. We danced and had a blast and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Azilee & Anthony
"Aaron was absolutely great to work with! He was the perfect balance between giving recommendations and ideas, while still making sure it was special to us. Everyone had a blast at the reception and the dancing never stopped! We loved working with him and would recommend him 100%!
Sunny & David
"Aaron did a Great Job at my daughter's Sweet 16 Party!! We really had a wonderful time and Aaron was a lot of fun to work with. He was really good at getting everyone dancing. My daughter and her friends said that was the Best Party they had ever had! Aaron made my job a lot easier. Can't wait to work with him in the future! Thanks Aaron!
"Aaron is all class and all fun! Our 20 year high school reunion could not have been a success without his MC skills and ability to engage the hesitant guests. Just the right song, at just the right time. That's what separates the good DJs from the great. I highly recommend Aaron and will call upon him for any event to host!

"Aaron was an amazing addition to our wedding on 6/27/15! All our guests have gone on and on about how awesome the music was! He made everything so easy for us and helped us make decisions that made our special day even more unique to us! I would highly recommend Aaron to anyone for any event!! I cannot say enough good things about how Aaron brought energy and fun to the dance floor the entire reception!
Morgan & Ben
"10 STARS! Can I give 10 stars?! Aaron is an amazing DJ, but he is truly more than that. Aaron is an entertainer. Anyone can throw on some tunes, but Aaron customized the day to us. He took the time to get music on that everyone was dancing to and livened up the crowd. Aaron worked the room, and he made sure that people were involved and having a great time. From the start of our planning through the wedding day the ONE THING that I did not worry about one bit was our reception music and the fun that Disc Jockey ETC would bring. He made it easy for my husband and I to enjoy ourselves. If I had two words of advice to give anyone who is looking for a DJ for their event it would be these: BOOK HIM!
Liberty & Harold New
"DJ. Aaron. Elya. If you know Aaron, then enough said. If you have yet to meet him, get ready to have a blast! He DJ'd our wedding on 4/25/15 and he was worth every single penny!!! From the moment we met him, my fiance & I were more than impressed! He's fun, passionate, and truly loves what he does. He's professional, patient and cares about the experience of the event. His communication is top notch...even his emails are fun! He does so much more than just "play music" - he carefully orchestrates the mood of the entire event from heartfelt and calm to unbridled crazy fun!!! So glad our paths crossed and we met him in time for our wedding.
Jamey & Crystal Pullen
"Aaron was referred to us by our venue and DJed our wedding on 11/1/14. My husband and I were VERY impressed with him. As stressful as wedding planning was, Aaron made this part a piece of cake for us. He was very professional and a whole lot of fun! All of our guests loved the music selection AND the entertainment Aaron brought to the dance floor! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an event DJ!
Michelle & Shaun
"Aaron went above and beyond for our wedding. He made it simple to choose the perfect music selection for our ceremony and made it fun to personalize songs for our reception. He was also a major part in helping the reception run smoothly as a great MC. Not to mention he is just plain fun and kept the dance floor packed all night. We will recommend Disc Jockey Etc / Aaron Elya to anyone planning an upcoming event. Thank you again Aaron for being a major part of making our wedding night a blast!
Kathryn & Austin
"My groom and I had such a fantastic time working with Aaron Elya at Disc Jockey Etc. It was just like working with an old friend! He replied to my original new client inquiry email within an hour and the prompt responses didn't end there. He is so easy to get in touch with and genuinely loves being a DJ. He was extremely flexible with our crazy work and wedding planning schedules. He had wonderful suggestions for someone who doesn't know much music and really set the tone for the reception!! He does not hesitate to get out on the dance floor to get the party started! He was a huge hit with all our guests. I highly recommend him to anyone!!! We will definitely be contacting him for any DJ needs in the future as well!
Amanda & Jim
"Aaron is one of the sweetest men ever and an awesome DJ. My husband and I first met Aaron at my friend's wedding. We saw then that he was a blast. We decided two weeks before our wedding that we wanted to cancel our contract with another DJ company and go with Aaron. Aaron made sure our wedding day was exactly what we wanted. He took time to meet with us, always responded to our texts, and it was THE BEST DECISION we could have made. Our wedding was awesome, our reception was awesome, and Aaron helped make that happen.
Sara & Matt
"Aaron, thank you for an amazing evening! You are a FANTASTIC DJ. We are so thankful that you were there with us. Everyone had a blast! We will tell everyone that there is NO better DJ...and that's the TRUTH! We love you!
Ben & Jennifer (Bennifer!)
"Thank you, Aaron, for making our reception so much fun! We couldn't have picked a better DJ to be the master of ceremonies and DJ on or wedding day!!! Thank you for all your hard work!
Clark & Rio
"Looking back, Aaron was the best decision we made regarding our wedding. We had issues with just about every vender we worked with. Never once with Aaron. He was extremely professional and detail oriented from day one. Several people walked up to us during the wedding and made comments like: “Where did you find this DJ…he’s awesome!” and "Wow, you got lucky with your DJ…mine was lame!”
Take it from someone who also plays music for a living and is type a…This guy is AWESOME.
My wife even said after the wedding…”I kinda wish we had another party that he could host!”
Daniel & Deborah
"Hey man! just wanted to say thanks again for the amazing job you did at me and Brilee's wedding. We really could not have found a better DJ. You brought down the house and everyone was talking about how much fun they had. To get both our families out on the dance floor is a pretty huge accomplishment that you pulled of effortlessly! Keep. On. Rockin.
"Just having my anniversary made me think of my wedding. I have to say that I am super glad I chose Aaron Elya to DJ my wedding. He was wonderful! Even when I screwed up and sent the wedding party out before they were supposed to, he just let the first song play so there was not weird changing of the song mid isle! Then started my march of California Girls with seamless effort! He was so informative and concerned about every little detail. I knew the one thing I would have to worry on that day was the music. I hope that if you have come to this page, that this message influences you to hire Aaron. You will NOT be disappointed! Thanks Aaron for making my big day great!!
"Jonathan and I would like to thank you so much for your DJ services at our wedding reception. We had no worries going into the special day and were, of course, happily pleased with everything you did for us. You went far above just being a DJ. While playing a fantastic variety of music you seamlessly directed the course of events.
Thank you for remembering all of our special requests and helping our guests and ourselves have an unforgettable time!
Jennifer & Jonathan
"What can I say? You were a fantastic DJ and MC at our wedding. The up-front work and preparation that we did together really paid off and without you, I don’t think the wedding reception would have gone as smoothly as it did. You really stepped up when the reception site’s wedding coordinator did not show up and Marty and I can’t thank you enough. The music you played had all our guests dancing and having a good time and that was especially important to us. I also appreciated your coordination with my uncle, who played our first dance, and with my videographer to get our slide show set up. I would be happy to speak with any of your potential clients to give a referral. In fact, I am recommending you to several of my sorority sisters that are getting married. Thanks, Aaron!
Marty & Joanne
"Hello!! I just wanted to say thank you, a million times over, for how great of a job you did as the DJ for our wedding. Everyone had a great time and you have a great (hilarious) cameo in our wedding video, dancing around with everyone! Anyway, thanks for being so great, from the second we met up the first time, to the minute we left the reception, you really are the best DJ ever!!! I will recommend you to any and everyone I can (and working in the jewelry store I get a lot of people planning their weddings!). Thanks again!
Nicki and Michael
"Aaron was our DJ for our ten year class reunion. Not only was he able to select the perfect music for the event, he was extremely professional. Everything was set up on time and it all worked out perfectly. I accredit much of success of our event to our great DJ!
"I could write paragraphs to tell you what a good job you did and how everyone had such a great time at our christmas party at the Renaissance PineIsle Resort and Golf Club but let me sum it up by saying, i can not imagine ever having a party without you and your talent.
Thank you, Aaron!
Mike Monk -- President, CEO
"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the fantastic job you did at our wedding. Every little detail was perfect and I loved the way you kept everyone in the crowd on their feet. I don’t think there was one person you didn’t have dancing and believe me, that’s quite an accomplishment!!
The playlist couldn’t have been better. I have been spreading the word to all of my friends who are getting married next year and will continue to do so to anyone I know with a need for your services. You’re the best!
Jennifer & Todd
