Songs to entertain any generation!

Recently we hired Mr. "D" to entertain at my son's high school graduation party. The kids loved the music, the parents loved the music, and before we new it, the grandparents were making requests and dancing to "Under the Boardwalk." Mr. "D" has great interaction with every age and can critique his program to fit any event. He was very professional and had his equipment set up and ready to go early. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again for any future events.

AWESOME!!

We hired Mister D for my sons wedding reception on New Years Eve 2011. Our son is a Navy Corpsman stationed in N.C. and he married his best friend who is a Marine, She is stationed in N.C. as well. They wanted to get married in my sons hometown but being so far away they did not have the ability to check out everything before had to make sure it would be just right for that special day and evening. So, they told mom (myself ) what they wanted and we went to work! Mister D and his wife Sandy went so above and beyond making my son and his new bride's day more than special! The music was everything they asked for and then some. He even personalized the song " The Baby" by Blake Shelton to make our Mother son dance more than memorable! From the moment I called Dave he and his wife were more than willing to help! They just took the bull by the horns and ran with it!! Talk about one less stressful thing for the mother of the groom to do!! And it was just an all around PERFECT evening. Now, my son is a pretty stoic kinda guy and a toughy but midway through the evening he came up to his mom and said with tears in his eyes " Thank you mom for making this everything we ever wanted'! I told him he had so many people to thank and Mister D and his wife were one of them! Folks if you want the perfect person for a special event, someone who will go above and beyond your expectations then Mister D is totally your man!! Great Music, Great Talent and just an all round Great person to do business with! I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone!!! Thanks again Mister D and Sandy for all you did to help make an incrediable evening that much more AMAZING!!!

This Guy is Amazing!!!!

I just want to say that Mister "D" is amazing at what he does. He sat down with us and asked what we wanted and also gave us some great suggestions. I wanted everyone to sing along and have a great time at our wedding and, because of this man they did. He played the best songs at the best times. People came up to me after the wedding and told us they loved our musician! He definitely knows how to rock it and he also has an unbelievable voice. He really made my entire reception. I would for sure recommend him to any one that wants to have a great reception or a great rockin party! Thank you Dave for everything! You the Man!!!
