Dave was our DJ for our May 24th wedding and we could not have been happier! The music, lighting, and photobooth were amazing and not only did we love everything, but our guests did too! From our very first meeting, it was clear to us that Dave knows this industry inside and out and he has the experience and knowledge to help you decide what works and what doesn't, which is invaluable when you are planning the biggest day of our life! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Spin Doctor Entertainment to those planning their wedding or any other special event! Thank you, Dave!

Dave was our DJ as well as provided our photo booth, up lighting and lounge furniture for our wedding on 5/2/15. From our first meeting he was extremely professional, and really went out of his way to make my husband and I feel comfortable. The quality that really set him apart from others we had met was the passion he had for his work. You can tell within a minute of talking with him that he genuinely enjoys what he does, and he is incredibly knowledgeable about it. He is constantly upgrading his equipment to make sure he has the newest technology for your wedding and continually adding new features or items to enhance your day. We gave Dave full control over the music at our reception and our guests had a phenomenal time. He really knew how to read our guests and get everyone involved. Our lounge furniture and up lighting looked amazing…it was perfect. Dave took my vision for the layout of the lounge furniture and designed an incredibly beautiful space that my guests were in awe over. The photo booth was the star of the night, and my guest loved how they were able to get a strip for each person as well as email the strip so they could instantly share on their social networks. Our day of coordinator also loved working with him and said he was very professional and flexible when any last minute changes arose. Dave really made our wedding an incredible event and we highly recommend him!!!

We couldn't be happier with Dave from Spin Doctor Entertainment! He was quick to respond to any questions we had and was very accommodating with meeting with us (we live outside of Boston) whenever we were in town. The online planning form was great and made everything that much easier. We did the "Custom Gobo (name on the dance floor)" lighting and he let us submit our own design. This was great for us because we custom created all of our invitations, paper goods, and decorations at the wedding; so everything felt seamless and cohesive. On the day of the wedding, Dave was great keeping us on schedule and making everything easy for us. We didn't have to think! I would highly recommend Spin Doctor Entertainment for you wedding!

Dave from Spin Doctor was great. He spent a lot of time with us at our meeting, had great suggestions and custom edited some of our song choices. Dave kept the evening flowing and everyone had a great time. The uplighting was a great add-on, and we got so many compliments on how great it made the room look. Dave was super easy to work with and answered any questions within a day. ~Melissa and Eddie 3.14.15~

We couldn't be happier with our experience with Dave. From beginning to end he made things easy & stress free.

Many of my guests loved the music and complimented me on the DJ weeks after my wedding. Dave works hard but well, and he makes it seem effortless on his part. He studies the crowd to make sure he's playing the right kind of music; if he sees no one dancing to the music he's playing, he'll change it up until he sees everyone enjoying themselves. He also did an excellent job catering the music to my taste, while also catering to the taste of my guests (which tends to be different). Dave is a pleasure to work with, high energy, and a professional. I wish I had another event to hire him for!
Christine & Pat
Dave was great! He did our ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, uplighting & photobooth. At the final meeting he helped us plan every little detail, things we hadn’t even thought about! Super fast at responding to any questions & I loved the online planning form where you could easily find songs & make your own play list/do not play list. At our reception Dave even made sure to come find us for everything to make sure that we stayed on schedule. A lot of our wedding guests weren’t big dancers to begin with, but he still kept people on the dance floor all night. And the photobooth was a huge hit! We loved our photobooth book, and got a USB of all the photos plus a photobooth mosaic picture of my husband & I! Would definitely recommend!
Craig Ashurst
What a champ this guy was. He enjoys his job an enormous amount and this reflects in his work. We got married on Sunday 10/12/14 and it truly was the most amazing day of our lives. Dave's enthusiasm when speaking to the guests, along with his attention to detail in uplighting was outstanding. Even his helper at the awesome photo booth was so friendly and really loved what he does. Spin Doctor dj listened to every request that we had and delivered! He even offered awesome suggestions when we weren't sure what we wanted. I would recommend Spin Doctor DJ to anyone.
Stephanie & John Neves
Dave with Spin Doctor Entertainmemt was absolutely the best dj hands down. He not only played great music throughout the entire night but also helped us pick a lot of our music for many different points throughout. He has great taste and is an absolute joy to work with. My husband and I would absolutely refer him to anyone for any type of event.
Dan & Danielle
We can't say enough great things about Dave! From meeting him at a bridal show to having him run the music at our ceremony and reception! From up lighting to photobooth Dave is the best! He worked with us and it was stress free he literally gave us until the night before to finalize some last minute things! Very quick to respond to emails and only a phone call away.. The photobooth photos were great quality and the props were top notch! Amazing job!!!! Look no further the best DJ is right here with amazing prices!!!!
Virginia & Michael
Dave did an outstanding job at our August wedding and truly went above and beyond. Not only did he do everything we had discussed in our prior meetings, during the wedding he managed everything including the timeliness of the event. Our grand entrance was scheduled for 6 and he came to find us at 5:48. I forgot to mention to him we were planning to do a group shot with our photographer before the grand entrance, but he did not sweat it. He instantly ran to the mic and announced that we needed everyone outside for the photo and made the task so much easier. He also facilitated all of the guests through the buffet dinner with ease and liaised between us and the management on several occasions. Not to mention he kept our party jumping the entire time! In addition to all of this, the uplighting he did inside and outside the venue was absolutely stunning everyone remarked how much it added to the ambiance. Cars were even stopping outside of the venue to stare! Our wedding truly would not have been nearly as smooth or fun without Dave's involvement. Highly recommended for any type of event!
Jenn & Marc
was so happy that we chose Dave to be our DJ. He has a user friendly website where you can create your song requests for the entire wedding. He was helpful in providing suggestions for songs and was willing to play requests on the spot during the wedding. We adding on the photo booth and it was a huge it! The pictures were great quality and all the props you could ever want were included. Best thing about it, you get a copy of all the photos after the wedding so you can see all the pictures that you "missed". Overall, Dave gets 5 stars from us. We would hire him again next time we are in need of a DJ!! Thanks Dave!!!
Sean & Kristen
Dave, aka the Spin Doctor, was excellent! He is friendly, engaging, communicative, creative, and an awesome DJ! We used Dave not only as our DJ, but for uplighting the venue and for our photo booth. All aspects of Dave's service was top notch. He had awesome props for the photo booth (no additional cost), he provided us with all the photos taken in the booth on a USB drive at the end of the night (no additional cost), and a few days after the event, we received an amazing photo mosaic of us created from all those photo booth photos (at no additional cost). Dave played exactly all the songs we wanted him to and none of the songs we didn't want him to play. The dance floor was packed all night and he kept the vibe going without interruptions. We highly recommend him for his excellent customer service, his top notch quality, and his affordability. He absolutely crushed at our wedding and our guests were super impressed!
Lauren and Ernie
There are not enough great things that can be said about Dave and Spin Doctor DJ. If you are looking for a fantastic service then look no further. From our initial meeting my husband and I knew Dave was the perfect match for our wedding. We were assured that the event would run smoothly and that our guests would have a great time. If you are worried about not knowing what music will work for your event, again no worries. Dave will work patiently with you to make sure you get the music that fits your style while still allowing the guests to enjoy themselves. We hired Spin Doctor to do our ceremony music, cocktail hour music, reception music, room uplighting, dancing on a cloud and a photo booth. He without a doubt fulfilled every duty to the maximum. Many of our guests came up to us the next day or texted saying "OMG...who was your DJ". He also works great with your other vendors, and will make sure they are all on the same page with what the Bride/Groom is expecting. Again, there are not enough great things that can be said. If you are looking for a quality, fun DJ that knows how to get a party started and keep the party going, then Spin Doctor DJ is the only place you should look. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!! THANK YOU AGAIN DAVE FOR MAKING OUR WEDDING PERFECT....OUR GUESTS ARE STILL RAVING!!!
Julie & Brent
Your DJ is one of the most important vendor selections you can make as you plan your wedding - they ultimately control the tone of the reception, and are the greatest determining factor on whether your guests go home happy. DJ Dave had my entire reception, from ages 3 all the way through 90, on the dance floor the entire night! Guests were in their glory, singing his praises at the end of the night saying this was the best wedding they had ever been to! His equipment is state of the art, he's incredibly organized, and he ensures that all the little moments of the reception (grand entrance, first dance, cake cutting) truly fit you as a couple. Do yourself a favor and work with him! Oh, last tip, definitely order uplighting in addition to his DJ services - it transforms your venue space and adds so much to the tone of the reception.
Pete and Brooke
From the first time we met Dave he was very professional and you can tell how much he loves being a DJ. We also used a photo booth from him and whenever we would meet with him he would always have something new for us like designs for our photo strip printouts and the new monitor for the photo booth and you could tell how excited he was every time he introduced something new. Also, the mosaic from the photo booth looks great and is a nice touch! The wedding itself was incredible, Dave was a great entertainer and kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night and was very receptive to all the types of music that we like, including country! For our first dance we did the "dancing on a cloud" option which was great! He uses dry ice to really make it look like we were dancing on a cloud! We had an amazing day and will definitely use Spin Doctor again! Highly recommended for any event.
Juls
Dave was awesome from start to finish! He made everything easy and was a pleasure to work with. I had so much fun at my wedding, and everyone else did too. Would def recommend him to all brides looking to have an awesome wedding DJ!

Great DJ great time!

We recently just got married on March 22,2014 and Dave was our DJ for the reception. He made the whole process easy and stress free which were two things that we were looking for with all of the other planning to do for the wedding. We actually did not think most of our guests would be dancing since the majority of them do not like to dance. But the choice of songs and sequence in which he played them had people dancing like you wouldn't believe. Not only did Dave provide our cocktail hour and reception with music but he also supplied us with lighting and a photo booth. The photo booth was the spotlight of the wedding. Everyone loved it! and it was probably one of the most talked about and shared pictures of the reception. Dave made the wedding fun and entertaining by providing our guests with great music and entertainment for the people who did not want to dance. Dave was always there to answer any of our questions and he directed the whole event and made sure we knew what to do and what was happening next. I would recommend The Spin Doctor to anyone I know who is looking Dave is truly AMAZING! He made our day unforgettable.
Katherine & Tom Ford
We truly believe that a DJ can make or break your wedding reception, and Spin Doctor DJ made ours great! Having a few years experience in the wedding industry, I knew my husband and I needed a DJ who knew his stuff. Dave played a big part in making our wedding reception unforgettable. During the planning process, working with Dave was great. He answered all emails quickly and was happy to answer all of my questions. The online organization forms his company uses helped with planning out the reception and music for the evening since I love to stay organized. I met with Dave a few days before to go over all the details about the wedding. He was fantastic making sure we were all set, especially insuring he had perfect pronunciation for the banes of those in our bridal party! The night of our reception, Dave was fantastic! He directed the whole evening and was great at making sure we knew what to do and what was happening next. Dave did a great job of choosing music that had everyone dancing earlier in the evening and switched over to more club-like music as the evening went on to suit the younger guests ( definitely request the use of "Dave's Mix".) Our requirements had been simple but vague - no explicit hip hop or rap and keep people dancing - and he did just that! Our friends still talk about how much fun they had! The dance floor was packed all night!!! Dave provided us with our music for both cocktail hour and reception, ballroom up lighting, cake up lighting, a floor monogram and "dancing on a cloud." Every detail was magnificent. Dave has top of the line system equipment and the latest and greatest in special effects. For our up lighting, we started the room of in a gorgeous teal ( one of my wedding colors) and then once the music picked up, the lights changed with the beat of the music. Our cakes looked beautiful thanks to the cake lighting Dave provided. Dave designed our floating floor monogram for us. He gave us a bunch of options to choose from so we could do it ourselves but I trusted his professional eye and I am so glad I did! The best part of the services provided by Spin Doctor DJ was by far the "dancing on a cloud" option. Our first dance was truly magical thanks to Dave. In conclusion, our wedding would have failed to impress as it did without Dave and Spin Doctor DJ. I would recommend him to everyone......150% recommended. I promise you will not regret your decision!

DJ Dave of Spin Doctor DJ was absolutely fantastic, he created an entire evenings playlist out of only a few suggestions from us. He emceed the entire wedding reception flawlessly and made our lives so easy. The From our first meeting it was clear he was a true professional and that we would have nothing to worry about. I would recommend Dave to anyone!!!
Shawn and Alicia
David Parks from Spin Doctor Entertainment is hands down the best DJ we have ever seen and worked with for any event. His organization, creativity, selection of music, and photo booth were incredible and fun! I think we lost half our guests during the night at the photo booth (but can't wait to see the pictures)! Totally recommend the up lighting for your venue. Dave made the process so easy and was extremely prepared up until the day of the wedding that when the actual day came the reception ran so smoothly. My friends and family were so impressed. He consistently let us know what was happening without a worry. He made it fun and lively and his timing was always right on point. We would not only use Dave Parks again but highly recommend his services. Thank You!!!!
Lisa and John
Dave was great right from the start! He gave us all of our options and offered us a lot of really awesome deals - he offers a lot of pretty nifty extras if you're looking for that little extra special touch or surprise without being cheesy. We had a lot of quirky ideas mixed in with the traditional and he went with us and completely accommodated everything. His tool for creating your song request lists is definitely a big plus if you really want to be able to customize your playlist (which is EXACTLY what we wanted!). Dave kept everything running and managed to fit everything in even when our reception started a bit later than planned (our pictures ran a bit late! :-P) - and even when we handed him a 20 minute slideshow, he made it work! Not only that, he continuously came to find us and keep us informed of whatever was going on and check in to make sure he wasn't missing anything we really wanted (there was just one song that we'd really wanted to dance to but unfortunately couldn't get away from the table we talking with when it was playing to make it in time, but that's our fault for not telling him we particularly wanted to dance to that one!). Thanks Dave for helping make our day even more memorable and special!

Dave exceeded our expectations. He knew what to play when and the dance floor was filled all night. Our wedding guests kept telling me he and the music was fantastic. As the mother of the bride, I wanted everyone to have a great time and hearing all the good this about the music was wonderful.
Happy Bride
We got married on July 19, 2013 and honestly could not have been happier with Dave! He was professional, fun and 100% on point the entire wedding. He read the crowd on the dance floor and kept it full the entire time. We had a blast as did all of our guests. If you are looking for a fantastic DJ you can do no better than Dave the Spin Doctor! :) Spin Doctor DJ - Uplighting & Photo Booth

Dave did a great job getting all the details for the night. He keeps the night flowing smoothly and makes sure the dance floor is getting its use! Up lighting and dance on a cloud are an excellent extra touch to make the event more elegant! Thanks again Dave!
Michelle and Jeff
Spin Doctor DJ Dave Parks helped make our day very special. We went in with no direction. We like to listen to hard rock and felt it wasn't appropriate for our wedding but we knew we wanted to dance! Dave put together the whole play list besides a few songs. His music kept everyone out of their seats all night dancing. Dave kept me updated throughout the night when important things like cutting the cake or a special song for the groom's parents were going to happen. We had one major request that there would be no country music, we had a guest request a country song so Dave asked if it was ok before playing. He truely helped to make our day very very special! Thank you so much for an amazing day of great music! Spin Doctor DJ - Uplighting & Photo Booth Spin Doctor DJ - Uplighting & Photo Booth in Danbury CT CT Wedding DJs

"My wife and I were told about Dave the Spin Doctor by a few friends, as well as from the photographer and venue for our wedding. When we first met with Dave we were immediately impressed with him. A few weeks before the wedding we sat with Dave to go over the playlist and song choices for the special dances and he was extremely accommodating with hard to find songs. He came through and got them on the spot for us so we were very happy. The day of the wedding we got to the venue early to take pictures and get ready, and he was there before us and already setup, which was a relief and one less thing we had to worry about. The dancing on a cloud and total room up-lighting really made a huge impression on our family and guests, so huge that they are still talking to us about it. If this site would allow me to I would give more than 5 stars, as Dave was great, and I would highly recommend him to anyone for any kind of event they are having." thank you, Matt

Dave was great! He handled everything from our music, up lighting, and photo booth to all our favors. He was by far the easiest and most fun vendor we worked with. I had no favors he found them, i had my florist go out of business 2 months before and he recommended new ones. He was also so easy to get a hold of and full of great ideas. Dave kept everyone up dancing ALL night even me who never dances and did not give anyone the mic ( with our group that was a huge piece of mind for me). I can not say enough good things about Dave, he helped make our day run so smoothly and kept me calm (he even helped fix my cake!)
M Valenti
Dave did an amazing job at my daughters weeding. He was very professional from the initial meeting thru the event. He read the guests perfectly and played everything we wanted and more. Highly recommended.
John
Spin Doctor DJ & Uplighting was great. The music he played had everyone on the dance floor from the start of the wedding. His whole presentation was spectacular. He kept us informed the entire night as to what was going on. The lightning presentation made the room special and peresonable. The timing was good as to the flow of the wedding.
Michelle Totilloi
I would recommend the Spin Doctor DJ to anyone, David was awesome to work with from start to finish! He played all of the music we wanted and also catered to the music he could tell our guest were enjoying. He had the dance floor packed all night. We had so many of our guest come up to us throughout the night and tell us how great the music was. If you are considering him as your DJ you wont be disappointed in anyway with choosing him.
Lauren & Josh Nolan
Dave was fantastic. He helped us all the way to the end. He Made sure to keep us well informed all through the wedding as to what was going to happen and when (which was great for us!). All of our friends and family loved his music mixes! He kept everyone dancing all night and really kept it fun. His lighting package was amazing! It made the room absolutely beautiful at night! He also had dry ice pour onto the dance floor during the first dance - a big suprise for our guests! They loved it! All in all - Dave "the spin doctor" was great. Everything went exactly as he said, he kept the party going, and he got peopl to dance and have fun. What more can you ask for. Thanks for everything Dave!
The Nugents
Spin Doctor DJ was incredible! My wedding was amazing and he helped it flow perfectly! He catered to the crowd to play the right music to get everyone dancing, as well as followed my requests. He suggested an adorable wedding game that my husband and I played, which was a big hit. He was friendly, organized, professional, and fun. I will definitely recommend him to my engaged friends!
Tasiaclark
Our wedding was perfect! Spin dr dj did an amazing job! Everything was on schedule and exactly how we wanted it! We even threw some last minute changes at him the day before the wedding and everything was great! He was also very honest when we sat down with our list of music and told us what he thought would get people dancing and what wouldn't. He was very nice and a fun dj to have! I would definetly recommend him to anyone.

Our experience with Dave was great from start to finish. He has a convenient website to select songs. He even found an unusual song that we asked him to play. He was very easygoing and professional and never pushy. He was always responsive when I called or emailed with a question. Everyone thought he was great at our wedding. He had high energy and made our wedding a blast. I thought he was fair in his pricing and worthy the money. I also highly recommend his photo booth which all our guests loved and the photo quality was great.

We absolutely loved the Spin Doctor. Music and the dj really set the mood for a wedding reception and from ceremony to the last song he was great!! My husband and I took a moment to look from the outside in at our wedding guests and all we saw were arms flying, hair in the air and people dancing their hearts out...people were running from the bathroom to dance to the next song. Thank you so much DAVE!!!! The Sawyers! Spin Doctor DJ - Uplighting & Photo Booth

David Parks/ Spin Doctor is an amazing DJ. All of the guests at our June 9, 2012 Wedding Reception enjoyed a wonderful evening of dancing, thanks to him. Spin Doctor DJ made many helpful suggestions and offered a wide array of services but was never pushy about any of his ideas. In the end he does exactly what the bride and groom want and nothing more or less. He is very easy to work with!
Kait
I would tell anyone who can get Dave to be their DJ for thier wedding to absolutely go for it! Dave came over to both my husband and I quite a few times throughout the evening to keep us updated and ask if everything was going as planned. I thought that was amazing. As soon as the music started the dance floor was not empty at all! Dave knows how to feel the crowd and play the music everyone wants to hear! My wedding was hands down amazing and I can thank Dave for that!!!!!...
Teeny14302
The BEST Dj ever!!! Dave has such a fun personality and just wants everything to be perfect for you for your big day. Everything was in fact perfect!!! The music, the lighting, the set up & all of our guests loved the newly wed game!!! Everything was just amazing and everyone that I know who is getting married or was just married is using him and all say the same thing, he's great!!!
M. Kopchik
Dave is simply great at what he does. He was more than accomodating and stayed on top of all the planning from the very first day. He was constantly updating us on his new ideas and new technology that could add some fun to our wedding. All our custom requests were handled and nothing was over looked. Everything Dave said he would do for us he delivered on and that is hard to find now a days. Dave got the crowd into the wedding from start to finish and it would not have been the same with another DJ. Thanks again Dave for everything.
Colleen Smith
We used Dave Parks from Spin Doctor DJ & Lighting for our wedding and he was phenomenal!! He was recommend by someone I work with who had recently gotten marred and used him for her wedding. The day of the wedding everything was setup timely and professionally. He even did the music for our ceremony at the church and still made it over to our venue in time to have everything ready to go for the cocktail hour and reception. The up lighting made the room!! It gave such a nice glow to everything and really tied the room together. I wasn’t sold on the up light initially but I am VERY happy we went with it. Additionally, he brought two large flat screen TV’s with him, and to add a personal touch, he displayed a picture of my husband and myself when the reception room was first opened to our guests. The video montage he put together for us was very sentimental; our families loved it. He played it on the two large flat screens so the whole room could see it. Dave was great! At our final meeting we ran through the entire wedding day to make sure everything was set. Dave gave great recommendations and insight when we needed it and was also very open to our ideas. The day of the wedding the entire evening ran perfectly. He informed us ahead of time when everything was going to happen; the introductions, the first dance, the cake cutting, garter and bouquet toss….etc. We were never confused about what was going on or where we should be; Dave made sure we were completely informed. Most importantly he played the right music at the right time and all of our guests had a blast! One of the first things you will notice about Dave is his passion and enthusiasm for what he does; which makes him the perfect DJ!
SonyaTilford
Spin Doctor did the most marvelous job I could have possibly imagined. My husband and I have a unique taste in music (from Otis Redding to the Ramones). We brought this to Spin Doctor hoping he would understand and leave out all the music we really don't care for. Not only did he do so--but laced the perfect pre-chosen playlist with just the right songs to get the party going and staying CRAZY. Everyone at the wedding exclaimed multiple times at how "perfect"--"fun" and "tasteful" the music was. He was even able to play a unique hard to find song for our first dance. Go with him---I feel certain to guarantee you will NOT be disappointed. Plus--his personality and business was nothing short of professional AND flexible. Bravo!
Danielle
I never realized how much a DJ can make or break a wedding but Dave did everything in his power to make our wedding day special and unique. I am detail oriented person and using Dave's website to plan everything out was great. It helped us plan a timeline of how our reception would flow throughout the evening. The website also allowed us to pick out our "must play" and "do not play" song lists. In addition, we also selected a list of songs we liked and wished to be played if time would allow. This site allowed us to write notes next to the songs if we wished to have had them played at particular times (ie:cocktail hour, dinner, open dance floor, etc). If you did not have a clear vision of your ideal song wish list he also had the lists categorized by several different groupings; most popular songs of different decades, popular traditional wedding songs (father daughter, mother son, bride and groom first dance, and etc). I could continue to babble on how incredibly awesome this website was, but I will move on from this particular aspect of the wedding planning process. Dave is very organized and knows exactly what he's doing. Whenever I would email him he would quickly follow up with a response. Two weeks before our wedding day Dave contacted us to go through the entire reception from start to finish. My husband and I live in Rhode Island and were not able to meet with him in person so we set up a time to have a phone/facetime meeting. I was shocked on how many little things I forgot to do. He showed us pictures and examples of things we needed to decide on such as different lighting options. On our wedding day my husband and I walked into the reception space and were blown away by how beautiful it was and how all of Dave's little lighting touches transformed the room. Our wedding was during the day so I did not think lights would add anything to our space but I was wrong. Our wedding colors were purple, ivory and silver and he had the back wall lit in violet, our cake was also illuminated... Dave even wore a violet button down shirt to match our decor. To add a personal touch he had two large flat screens that displayed a picture of my husband and I from our engagement shoot. Throughout the entire reception Dave played all the songs we requested, and if he planned to play a different song he asked ahead first. Nothing came as a surprise. All of our guests raved about the music and great variety of songs played. My husband and I also chose to have a photo montage played during dinner. We picked out the songs played during that time and the order we wished our pictures to be shown and he made sure all of our pictures were shown within the exact duration of those two songs. He also created an interesting shoe game that my husband and I participated in during dinner. We stood back to back from one another. We each held one shoe in each hand; one with my shoe the other hand held his shoe. He would ask us questions like; who spends more time in the bathroom, or who was the better driver and we would answer these questions by raising the shoe of the person we personally thought fit as they answered those questions. This game was humorous and was something I've never seen at any other wedding. Our guests loved it! In my opinion our wedding day was perfect. Thank you Dave for being a part of it!
Jamie and Anthony
Dave was absolutely exceptional to work with. He basically felt like our wedding planner. He knew ALL of our vendors and their contact info just in case they weren't at the reception site yet and he could call them and make sure they were coming or help them with directions, etc. Thankfully all of our vendors showed up but it was the BEST feeling to know that he had all of their contact info and was there for us even though he didn't have to do that at all!! He also gave us a detailed website that was optional to fill out but EXTREMELY helpful!!! I CANNOT recommend this DJ and all of his tools enough!! The website really helped us think of things we would have otherwise maybe forgotten about, it prompted us through our wedding planning. Dave was EXTREMELY quick with any emails or phone calls. He was always available to take phone calls at all hours and days of the week! When emailing him I ALWAYS got a response right back, he was my quickest vendor to respond by FAR!! The special effects for the wedding that he offers are out of this world. We chose dancing on a cloud for our first dance and the way he does it is truly like no other!! I have never seen it done this well before and ALL of my guests were literally in awe - still talking about it!! Our pictures of it are breathtaking!! The uplighting we used was exactly SPOT ON to our wedding colors which were VERY hard to match (we had a very specific orange and yellow). He had every single color and different shades of colors, etc. Our wedding could NOT have been more smooth, he ran the entire show behind the scenes and of course being the DJ as well. He was calming and relaxed which kept us the same way. Obviously we CANNOT say enough about him, he was nothing short of AMAZING!! His package deal is also the ABSOLUTE BEST price, he beats others but hundreds to thousands and honestly, he offered a LOT more too!! Definitely use him, we cannot recommend him to enough people!!!...
Conor & Wendys Wedding
We had Dave run the DJ show for our wedding in September 2011, and it was an absolute pleasure to deal with a professional who knew exactly what to do, when to do it and how to keep the atmosphere on a high. From our initial meetings with Dave to the final review, it was immediately apparant to me that this guy has the charisma and zest to make any wedding a fun and memorable occasion. This guy does it all, with an amzaing personality to boot. I would recommend Dave Parks / Spin Doctor DJ for any wedding where the focus is on FUN. A true professional...at very competitive rates!!!
Wendy
Dave was fabulous, I can't say enough about his talent. We planned our wedding from overseas and relied heavily on our vendors to do what they do best without much guidance from us. We took advantage of several of the services Dave had to offer, the music, the lighting, the photo slideshow...our family and friends were so impressed. Dave came through with flying colors, he was planned, he was spontaneous, he was perfect. We can't thank him enough for being a part of the best night of our lives!

Dave Parks of Spin Doctor DJ & Lighting was absolutely amazing! Our uplighting and lounge area was to die for! The music kept our guests dancing all night long! Every time I turned around there were only 5 or 6 people sitting at their table at any given time. His timing was excellent. The sound system was superb. He had everything under control at all times. I felt that our wedding went more smoothly thanks to his attention to detail. He honestly seemed to have everything more organized and under control than our venue when it came to the bridal party and set up. He never spoke too much and he kept everyone happy including the older guests. He is very prepared and I would highly recommend him to any bride. His pricing is perfect and he has a great personality. Our final meeting went smoothly and was very informative. He always answered any of my questions in a timely manner and we always felt that our business was a top priority. I look forward to seeing him at my maid of honors wedding in 2012! She is booking him after seeing him in action at our wedding! We received many compliments on his talents from our guests. He worked with us on special requests prior to the wedding and during the wedding. He had a great confidence in his work which made my husband and I very comfortable through the entire process. He never bothered us during the wedding but did make sure that we knew the next event to take place such as the cake cutting or first dance etc

Dave did a great job with our wedding. Early on he sat with us to discuss the package and the different options. He had plenty to choose from and we picked what we wanted and negotiated the price. Dave was great through this process and we never felt pushed or hassled. Over time we used his online tools to create our wedding timeline and music. The system was easy to use and one of the better online databases available. We had a 2nd meeting to finalize everything and go over our music selections. Dave did a good job to explain how the wedding day will go and from his experience how we'll need to lay things out. On the day of the wedding he arrived early to setup and met with the other players such as the photographers and venue planner. They all worked well together the whole night to keep things running smoothly. The music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception went off without a hitch. The uplights were perfect and the lighted cocktail tables were a nice touch that several people enjoyed. A+
Awesome DJ
Dave was amazing! He did a super job and took control of everything. He played all of the music we wanted and he really helped the party transition from dinner music to awesome party mode! When the time came to end the night our guests wanted to keep on going and Dave was all for it! (Unfortunately, the venue didn't let us :() I highly recommend Dave and Spin Doctor DJ & Lighting. He not only did our music but also the lighting, photo booth and slide show. He gave us a great price and we got way more than we paid for.
Julie B.
Dave was great to work with. He was very outgoing and you can tell he loves what he does. He has the most unique ideas and is helpful in every aspect. When we were stumped on picking out songs he had an ipad with an application that had songs that we could chose from! I doubt you would find anyone else who would have that!! My venue was even suprized he was able to set all his equiptment up by himself. His system and uplighting was great and made for an amazing night. I coluldn't have asked for a better DJ!!

Dave from Spin Doctor DJ and Lighting did a awesome job at our July Wedding. He played every song that we wanted and keep the mood of the night exciting!! Everyone gave us compliments on what a great time they had at our wedding and Dave helped us with that.

We used Spin Doctor DJ David Parks at out wedding and it was the most fun we have EVER had!! We had people trying to join us from the 2 other weddings in the venue, everything went perfectly and there was never a dull moment on the dance floor!! Our guests and the venue have yet to stop taking about it!! I would use him again and recommend him for any occasion in a heartbeat!! It could not have been done any better!!! We also had him do full room, cake and centerpiece uplighting as well as his dancing on a cloud feature. Every last detail of out wedding was perfect!! The room was transformed from ordinary to EXTRAORDINARY to fit exactly what we wanted, as though the room we specifically made for us, it didnt even resemble anything that had been done there in the past!! an absolute MUST!!
Jon
Dave was great to work with from the start. We were really impressed by his enthusiasm for our wedding and his style. He provided uplighting for the room and everyone who attended complemented the look. I would recommend Spin Doctor DJ for any event
Lauren&Chris
Dave Parks who is the mastermind behind Spin Doctor DJ is amazing. He listens to everything you say and puts it into action. He made our wedding day so special and we couldnt thank him enough. Not only is he a great DJ but his skills with uplighting are outstanding. He is the reason why our wedding reception was such a blast. no one stopped dancing ALL NIGHT!!!!! You cant go wrong with Spin doctor DJ.
Brian
We had the pleasure to have Dave DJ on our wedding, very organized and really got the party going. He notified us every time he's going to the next program, we didn't have to worry about anything. I would highly recommend for a wedding or any party.
Christina
Spin Doctor DJ and Lighting is incredible! Not only did the DJ keep the music pumping and the dance floor packed, but he also made the room have a romantic glow to it with his uplighting. There are lots of fun add on options too - ask about the game he plays with you! It is so much fun and the guests really enjoy it! I was very impressed with the communication as well. Everything was just the way I wanted it. I will definitely be recommending Spin Doctor DJ in the future!
Gretchen Foremani
We couldn't have asked for a better DJ! He played great music, the lighting was great, everything went as planned and he was very organized! I would recommend him to anyone needing DJ services for an event. He played all the right music we requested.

Dave just dj'ed our wedding on November 5. He \did a great job from start to finish. He made the planning process so easy. He makes himself very accessible to his clients which helps stressed out brides. The uplighting is totally worth it, it really makes the wedding just that much more special. For the actual day of - he was there early setting up, he following my specific directions perfectly (he did our ceremony music as well). The wedding was a huge success and Dave was the prefect addition to an event. Also - I can tell you that his services are VERY resonable. I would recommend him to my friend and family. Thanks again!

DJ Dave recently dj'd our wedding on 10/30 and he was amazing!!! He does everything exactly as you want it, the music, lighting, mc'ing...all of it! He is extremely accessible and returns all of your emails/phonecalls immediatley. Our wedding was at a mansion and so the setup was much more complex than an average banquet hall but he made it work. Our party was so much fun we had to extend him for another 2 hours because the crowd would not get off the dance floor! During our final meeting he sat with us for hours and reviewed everything step by step and the day of everything was so well organized and went so smoothly. DJ Dave is an amazing DJ and really knows how to accomodate not only his client but also the venue and crowd he is working with.
Deana
Dave is wonderful to work with! From the beginning Dave was easy going and made me feel comfortable. He works with you every step of the way and really does everything to make a wedding a success. The wedding was amazing from the lighting Dave provided to the music. Dave is extremely helpful at making suggestions and always wants to help ease the bride at all times. Dave, I can't thank you enough. I hope you had as much fun as I did at the wedding. The music was great! The sound was great! The up lighting was great! The set up was great! You know I am a fan and will gladly refer you to EVERYONE!
Annie
Spin Doctor DJ did an amazing job at my wedding. He personalized everything and the music choices were so much fun to dance to. I couldnt be happier. My guests commented on how excellent the music was and they loved the photo montage. I highly recommend Spin Doctor for your wedding.
Lawtons
Spin Doctor Dj and Lighting, We can't thank you enough for everything you did for us to make sure that our wedding day was an affair to remember,The entertainment was the most important part of our wedding day and we found it very difficult to find someone who would be able to accommodate our needs, Recommended to us by a friend we decided to take a chance and call to set up an interview. From the moment we spoke on the phone I felt an instant connection with the owner and even set up an appointment along with my best friend who was also getting married. Dave was able to answer all our questions and we both booked him on the spot!!!!!! His packages and services went beyond my expectations and his pricing was more then affordable, Till this day people are still commenting on the JOB WELL DONE, The couldn't believe that all of our special effects and music was including in the same package. All done by one individual. Dave even went above and beyond staying up all night, fixing a mistake that had nothing to do with him the night before my wedding to make sure that it was perfect!!!!Dave is truly a magical person who has a dear passion for what he does.My husband and I recommend Spin doctor DJ and Uplighting for anyone who wants to make their event a night to remember he has our vote!!!!
Summer Egan
Dave went above and beyond of what we asked for. He kept me organized from the very beginning. From the moment I met him, I felt confident that he would do his job as though he was throwing his own wedding. He looked for ways to make our night special. He threw in many extra details to brighten the venue and to create lasting memories that our guests are still talking about. I appreciate all his enthusiasm and energy he puts into doing his job the right way the first time around. I have no regrets about anything. He should be paid much more for what he offers and surprises his customers with. I would recommend him over and over. He truly shows excitement and pride in what he does.
Cassandra Whyte-Parisi
Everything was awesome!! Everyone loved the music, the uplighting and the custom monogram on the dancefloor. Our guests were on the dancefloor all night and everyone had a blast. Dave listened to all of my requests and helped me out with music suggestions when I wasn't sure what to do. He came highly recommended from a friend so my maid maid of honor and I both booked him right away on the first appointment. Ask for the shoe game!!!!!
MKSBride
Dave was great. He is reasonably priced, and has extra options if you want to add anything onto your package. He was on time and all set up in the chapel and reception room in time for our AM start. The sound was great (he uses BOSE systems), and we were able to order extra things such as hats, glow stickes, etc. for the reception. He played most of the songs we had requested on our playlist, and even found questions for a game we wanted to do. Thanks Dave!
HLSMSA
The Spin Doctor made our wedding amazing!!!! He got everyone up dacing and played the best music. Their online forms made everything so easy and stress free. I'm still getting compliments on our music and how it set the scene for a fun and memorable night!!! I would hightly reccomend them. Thanks so much Dave and the Spin Doctors!!!!
Teresa V.
Dave recently was the DJ for my wedding. He kept the dance floor packed and played different music that appealed to all age groups! he played a little something for everyone! I would never use any other DJ for any of my future events! Dave will always be my first Choice!! i have already recommended him to all my friends! those who attended my wedding had asked me where i found such a great DJ and have already booked him for events! I would definetly recommend Spin Doctor to anyone!! One meeting with him and you'll be hooked!
Renna
Dave is an incredible personable and enthusiastic guy! You can tell through his positive attitude and genuine excitement how much he loves to entertain and be apart of a wedding! We were thrilled with Dave's easy going attitude and overall organization. Dave was able to say "yes" to our every request including getting us some fog for our Thriller dance! He has unique and original ideas and makes sure to keep the night running smoothly. We are so thankful we found Dave and after meeting with him and having a line up with several other DJs, we knew immediately that we didn't need to look any further. Not only did he do all that we wanted and then some, but he also provided us with multiple samples, helpful lists and websites, and ideas to make our night special. We are so appreciative and had a GREAT time at our wedding! Thanks Dave!!! :-) Spin Doctor DJ - Uplighting & Photo Booth

Dave Parks did an incredible job DJing our reception, everything was perfect...
Jenn Lewis
Everything was perfect. Better then we could have imagined.
Mike
We had our ceremony and reception at the same venue and Dave was able to provide both the nice instrumental processional music for the ceremony and the party music for the reception. My wife and I were very impressed with the way that he was able to bring together our musical style with some more of the traditional wedding reception music. Dave was very easygoing and helpful in the planning process and also kept us in the loop during the reception. We are still getting compliments from our friends and family about how much fun our reception was, which was in a big part thanks to Dave. My wife and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good reasonably priced DJ in the Danbury area.
Lea Whipple
Dave is a excellent DJ!!! He made our wedding absolutely perfect!!! He was on top everything and really did make the whole reception stress free. The up lighting on our candy display and cake looked fantastic, it would not have been as nice without his keen eye. I would recommend dave as a DJ to anyone. Everyone loved the music and really enjoyed the photo montage!! Thanks Dave fir a great time!! Lea Whipple
Omohundro wedding
Spin Doctor DJ was super. He was enthusiastic, very amenable to our requests, and very passionate about his work. He arrived at the reception early, was all set up and ready to go before the guests arrived, and worked well with the wedding coordinator who supervised the time line of the evening. He coordinated the introduction of the wedding party beautifully with the requested music and everything flowed beautifully. I would highly recommend him. He contributed to a memorable evening for all of us. He will be our DJ at our next wedding!!!
Melissa & Andy Hutchings
We couldn't have asked for a better day for a wedding. Thank you Dave for all of your hard work. With out Dave the Spin Doctor Dj our wedding would not have been complete. You were everything we could have asked ofr and more. Everone has been raving how wonderful the wedding was and all of the fantastic perks that you had to offer. The Uplighting was out of this WORLD and the bogo logo of our names were outragous and dontforget the Bliss lighting. I watch our montage almost once a day if not more. We choice the works when we decided to go with Dave the Spin Doctor Dj and it was all worth it. If I could I would get married once a month as long as Dave is available to supply the music and all the bells and whistles. We had the montage wich was absolutly wonderful, The Walls were all uplight in a teal blue and behind our sweetheart table we had lime green uplighting, The Bliss lighting on the ceiling was the just the right touch, and Dave was the master of it all. Thank you so much for making our day perfect. I hope to be able to work with you again in the future.

Having seen the Spin Doctor DJ perform at a number of events, I hired him to handle the entertainment at my wedding, and it was a decision I have not once regretted. DJ Dave Parks is hard-working, enthusiastic, and highly professional. He had a diverse selection of music, entertaining all guests from ages 16 to 80. However, one cannot judge the Spin Doctor DJ on content alone, as it is his presentation that sets him so far above the rest. With high-tech sound gadgetry and a veritable arsenal of lights and video screens, Dave does not simply play music, but creates an atmosphere. Practically every guest at my reception commented on the wonderful job Dave and Chris did, and many consider their show to be the highlight of the day's festivities. I highly recommend Spin Doctor DJ for any event. Dave isn't just another businessman who disinterestedly spins on the weekends to supplement his income. He is truly passionate about his work and puts in the time and effort to make a great show every time he gets behind the console.
Matt
The service delivered from the Spin Doctor DJ & Lighting was exceptional! He was knowledgeable, professional, friendly and has a vast selection of music and equipment. Very reasonably priced and willing to travel across the state of CT for my wedding. Highly recommended!
Vanny Sengphet Bock
When my husband and I were looking for a DJ we were looking for one that was professional and personable. Dave with Spin Doctor DJ was that person. He was very professional and listened to what we asked for and kept you at ease while everything else was chaotic. I thought it would be pretty tough trying to find a DJ that also provided karaoke, but he was only an email away. Dave and my father worked well together combining the music that we wanted and also allowing for my father to sing at my wedding. He did a fantastic job and I would recommend him for anyone who is looking for a DJ for any event. If you're looking for a DJ that shows professionalism, hardworking, listens and personable, Dave with Spin Doctors DJ is your guy. Thank you again Dave for an unforgettable event :)
CJ & Jennine
Dear Dave, I want to thank you so much for the wonderful job you did at our wedding. I for one, did not sit down once all night. The music was hot, the extras were great, the lighting was beautiful. All of our guests had a great time and it was because of you. Thank you for making our wedding, what our guests called "the party of the year"
Noah
Spin Doctor was easily the best vendor we had for our wedding, exceeding even our highest expectations after talking to him leading up to the event. The music and the setup were fantastic! He kept things moving in a timely manner, making sure everything was taken care of. The photo slideshow had all of our guests amazed buy this extra touch. It kept everyone engaged while waiting for there food. He also does this great thing called uplighting which adds even more to the room. And make sure you inquire about the stars he displays on the ceiling. It make the night perfect! A+ My wife & I would HIGHLY recommend Spin Doctor for your wedding, or any other event!
Cassie & Rich
Dear Dave, We wanted to take the time to thank you for your services at our wedding on June 17. We can honestly say that we have never seen so many people dancing at a wedding before and we received numerous compliments about the music provided. We have been told that this was the best wedding that people have ever attended. We appreciate how easy it was to work with you and how you consulted with us on all decisions about the music. Thank you for taking away much of the stress that accompanies a wedding day. We would be happy to recommend you to anyone who wants to get married. Thanks again, Cassie and Rich
Kelly & Pete
Hey Dave! We wanted to send you a quick email just to say thank you for a wonderful job at our wedding! We had many compliments about the night and I always say that the music makes it! I personally had a fantastic night, and didn't want to stop dancing, I actually broke my shoes from dancing so much, and have never seen Pete dance that much!! It was absolutely wonderful, and we will always recommend you to anyone looking for an awesome DJ. Thank you for all of your hard work! The photo montage was also absolutely great! All of our guests enjoyed watching it! Kelly & Pete
