We hired Peter for our wedding back in August (8/17/19), and we can't recommend him enough! He was great from start to end. Peter was first recommended by our wedding coordinator, who has worked with Peter at other events. After meeting him, my wife and I felt very confident he was the perfect DJ for our wedding. He made us feel very comfortable and we felt he had our best interest in mind.Leading up to the wedding, Peter was always easily reached and responsive. He took the time to get to know us and made sure our wedding reflected who we are and what we wanted. We communicated often to review details, timelines, playlists, and more. On our wedding day he showed up early to set up his equipment and lighting, and he was the last to leave. He was fantastic with announcements, transitions, intros, and had our guests dancing all night! What really stuck out was his easy-going manner, and professionalism. He genuinely took good care of us (like family), wanting to make sure we were happy and enjoying our wedding reception! Note: not all vendors are easy to deal with but he was not one of those!Bottom line: Peter was professional, caring, well prepared, flexible, responsive and easy-going! We recommend Peter 100%, and would hire him again without hesitation, should we ever have another celebration! More...

When I was asked to participate in a dance competition for charity, I needed to find someone who could not only teach me the steps in a short period of time, but also guide me creatively through trying to pay tribute to a friend through the performance. Peter and Jenny did all that and more. They are a joy to dance with and learn from. They bring professionalism and at the same time enthusiastic energy.  Peter went above and beyond to make himself available for rehearsal. The choreography turned out beautifully and the night of the performance he was a true partner. You can trust Peter with whatever special event you have.  He will not let you down and you will have a good time! More...

I'd like to say that we weren't the most difficult wedding couple, lol, but im sure we were up there! We didn't want to do a single thing at our wedding & thank goodness Peter helped us realize the importance of certain moments & memories we should do & our night was spectacular! The movie montage, the special one on one dances, the speeches, the lights, we would have lost out on so much if we didn't listen to his expertise. Our last minute song requests & ceremony with no rehearsal, Peter rolled with everything that came up, smoothly & still smiling! My friends & family were telling me throughout the night how great they thought the DJ was & he mixed up the top hits dance music for my husband's side & the salsa for my family amazingly! The timeline he provides for the big day is just above & beyond what I expected as well... it was so great to have him as a part of the most special day of our lives! Thank you Peter you are amazing!

DJ Peter, did a surprise birthday party on March 2nd 2018 for my boyfriend. I loved that he was very professional from start to finish. I loved that he had his website with pictures and videos of his work is up and organized. He had different option packages to choose from and he was able to work within my budget. His energy was great! My guest LOVED HIM! Music was continuous with harmonious flow the entire time scheduled. A few of my guest have already asked who the DJ was and where did I find him. There were quite a few professional dancers at the party including my boyfriend really enjoyed the music the entire night. The dance floor was never empty. I will and some of my friends will most definitely be working with DJ Peter again in the very near/soon future. My daughter is graduating High School this coming June. I will definitely be talking with him about that.

You can't find a better DJ than Peter. I've worked with him for a number of years, and he's always my go-to guy. He's great to work with, always on time, and plays great music!

On top of being a great DJ, he also teaches fantastic dance lessons. Whether you need a lesson for beginning or advanced dancers, Peter's got something for everyone.

I can't think of a DJ I'd recommend more, and Peter does his absolute best to help you make each of your events a success.

I COULD NOT HAVE had better fortune than coming across the professionalism and EXCELLENT SERVICE of DJ Peter Araiza. He literally made my special day THAT MUCH MORE SPECIAL. He thought of every single detail in advance to ensure that our wedding party of 100+ guests would not only flow beautifully, but also be the sexiest/funnest wedding ever! From the lighting, to the MC'ing, to the music, to his amazing hosting skills, the night flowed like magic because of DjPeter. I am eternally grateful to him for everything he did from guiding us through the entire event planning process, as well as all through the night. I highly recommend him to anyone hosting any kind of event, or needing event consulting, lighting, a choreography or private dance lessons. In fact, my partner and I have continued to work with him as our DJ of choice for many other events we have held in downtown Long Beach. HAVE NO DOUBT, your party or your event will be an absolute SUCCESS with this man's skills. I wish I could give him many more stars, as 5 is nowhere near enough to express my deep gratitude to DjPETER for his many talents. Sincerely, Oriel María Siu, PhD More...

First heard Peter DJ at a Salsa Social I was attending about 4 years ago. Later on when I became involved with a Salsa Club on campus I had the unique opportunity to work with him. It has been an absolutely thrilling 3 years since we first started working together. Any Salsa Social I had in mind DJ Peter was first in line. He is on hand and available for pre-planning what you're looking for at your event and always on time and professional. We always have a blast when we book Peter for events and he's been a life saver for our Club. He's done some of our Graphics, he has taught at some of our meetings and socials, and we book him to DJ for us throughout the year. Really glad to have him join our team and bring that extra passion to our events. Peter does it all! More...

He was very accommodating and made my gastby themed party a fun and successful event! I would definitely book him for another event, or attend an event he is hosting. More...

Peter is a great instructor! I went through a series of private classes with him over months and felt much more improved and confident on dance floor. He is very very patient, never loose passion to dance with me over and over until I got it right. He spends time to correct and improve my connection and turns over our countless practice dance. What I like the most is he teaches me how to be comfortable and enjoy the moments in dancing. Many instructors are good dancers themselves, but bad teachers that want you to copy their showy moves or tricks that are meant for performance. I picked up some bad habits from past performance experience and Peter helped me to reshape my understanding of salsa and to re-learn the joy of social dance. I'm definitely going back for more private classes from Peter! More...

Peter Araiza just DJ’ed in Fresno for Ritmo y Pasíon, a CSU Fresno Latin dance club this past weekend, he even taught the Rueda de Casino lesson. It was phenomenal, everyone LOVED it!! He’s a great instructor, keeps learners engaged and laughing, and transitions smoothly in his MC’ing. Amazing night we will all remember, we’d want to have him back again the soonest we can!!

Peter is a master of his craft! Working with him was amazing and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a high quality, knowledgeable DJ! Peter was the DJ for our wedding about a year ago, and we continually have people telling us how much fun they had dancing at our reception! Not only does he take the time to find out what type of music you love, hate, absolutely want to hear, absolutely don’t want to hear, he is also one of the most professional and thoughtful vendors we worked with for our wedding! He has a wide range of skills and abilities, and would be the perfect DJ for any occasion!!! If you are looking for a phenomenal DJ who will have your dance floor full, look no further than Peter Araiza!!! More...

Q&A

The secret to keeping a party dancing all night long is being observent. Coming prepared and understanding your crowd is the key ingredient to knowing when something is or is not working.

First and foremost I am a fan of music. Whether it is Top 40, Hip-hop, Jazz, R&B, Classic Rock or Latin, I appreciate it all. I can adapt to just about any situation and I think on the fly.

Music and dance feeds the soul. Watching a crowd be moved by the music I am playing is what I love most.

I love the flexibility and the hustle to succeed. To be perfectly honest, it is addicting. I always love a good challenge and there is nothing like being your own boss.

Clients should choose my services because I do my research and prepare. My experience as a DJ, Wedding Coordinator, Public Speaker and Professional Dance Instructor gives me insight and an edge over other DJ's. Also, I am always refining my skills and refuse to become complacent. Furthermore, I believe in offering services that cater to my clients needs. I listen to my clients and take an active role to get the job done right.
