I found SoCal and Nick on Yelp. He had the best reviews out of many available. We sent him a message and we connected with his quick reply. All done very professionally even his liability insurance coverage was emailed as soon as we asked. Last night Nick and his helper created the best party ever. His equipment was perfect and music choice was awesome. He made our party special. They were friendly, professional and accommodating on our every requests. Whatever we threw at him he absolutely had it...Job well-done. I highly recommend him to Yelp community. More...

This review is almost 2 months late. Nick was, simply put, the most reasonable, amicable, and wonderful DJ we've had in many, many years. We are not newcomers to throwing parties, so we do know what's out there. From the minute we reached out to Nick until the day after the event, the experience was A+++ all the way. We have found our new DJ, that's for sure. Thanks Nick, and so very sorry for the delay! More...

This review is almost 2 months late.  Nick was, simply put, the most reasonable, amicable, and wonderful DJ we've had in many, many years.  We are not newcomers to throwing parties, so we do know what's out there.  From the minute we reached out to Nick until the day after the event, the experience was A+++ all the way.  Our past DJ dropped the ball, never responded, then when we were like a week away, started reaching out and saying we would not have the same experience we were used to.  He was right, we had an even BETTER one!  We have found our new DJ, that's for sure.  Thanks Nick, and so very sorry for the delay!

We hired Nick for our wedding in Anaheim CA and he did an outstanding job! Nick met with us a few weeks before the wedding so he could capture and present the special moments of our reception. Nick was right on cue at every important part of the wedding reception such as our first dance and Bride and Father dance etc. Nick also has a high energy voice and really commanded the reception with his notices and announcements. We will forever be grateful to a Nick for making our special day one that we will never forget! More...

Nick was the best DJ ever. He played exactly what I wanted all night. But besides being a great DJ he also made sure we stayed on schedule and got all of the nights activities in. The night was such a world wind that without him we would have missed something. But because of he's experience and professionalism we got it all done and everyone had a amazing time. Thank you Nick, I had a beautiful wedding I'm so happy!!!!! More...

We had Nick for our wedding this past weekend and he was absolutely awesome! He was extremely responsive when requesting a quote and we booked him almost immediately after the initial conversation. He is easy going and gives great guidance with listening to all ideas and adapts to make it special. He was adaptable to phone calls and was available to help finalize our song list and give ideas as well when we weren't sure which direction to go. I cannot say enough about how great he was and I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone for your wedding or any other special event that you need a professional that will make sure that the event goes as great as you hope. Thank you, Nick, for all of your professionalism and making the process great! More...

I don't know where to start with Nick! He's an amazing DJ, an overall great person! The first time we met with Nick, my husband and I were planning to mess with him a little. We met up with him and told him we were having a gothic wedding infused with Banda. Nick took it serious and was taking notes when my husband and I busted laughing. We told him we were kidding and he cracked up. He got our sense of humor and I think that's why we loved him! He took the time to figure out our style, he picked up on our vibes. When the wedding came around, he kept all of my guests dancing all night. Many friends left with blisters on their feet from all the dancing. My husband and I are extremely pleased with his services and hope to hire him again for future events! You cannot go wrong with Nick! We  you (In a non creepy way) More...

Nick was a truly fantastic DJ for our wedding and came highly recommended from a friend. He incorporated all our requests so well -- including a seamless transition to quieter music towards the end of the night and was great at pre-wedding communication. Couldn't have been happier!

Nick is the absolute best! After an exhaustive search for a wedding DJ, I was referred to him by a mutual acquaintance. I could not have been happier with the job he did. Not only was he a complete professional, but you can tell he's in his element as a DJ. His music choice was impeccable and coincided perfectly with my recommendations. He also does an awesome job of running the show and directing people, while still not making it about him and allowing everyone to enjoy themselves. I would happily pay twice as much for his service as I did - he's an absolute bargain and is worth WAY more than he charges! Most of all, I have to say that Nick is just a straight up good dude who is super cool. I can't thank him enough for being part of my wedding. I'd encourage anyone to use him!!! More...

Nick did an amazing job!!! Almost every person I talked to that night told me how great he was. I have never been to a wedding where so many people were dancing. Some of my family and friends that don't dance were dancing! I couldn't believe it. I would recommend him to anyone! He made my wedding perfect and people can't stop talking about how much fun it was because of him. Thank you so much Nick! More...

We threw a surprise party (last minute) and LUCKLY Nic was available!! Super helpful with where we should set up, was able to bring in some purple lights (the party was PRINCE THEMED, so. ....PURPLE EVERYTHING. His playlist was ON POINT.) and the set he put together had us dancing all night. He's the best! Was great on the mic and assisting us with the surprise and everything....everything fell together perfectly and we're sure that's due to the fact that our favorite SoCal Mobile DJ Nic was a part of it all. Thank you!! More...

Our wedding day was a tad more magical with our DJ extraordinaire Nick!

SoCal Mobile DJ is a wonderful event entertainment company and we're so happy that we hired them for our wedding.

From our first e-mail/in-person meeting interaction with Nick, he was quick and responsive. He promptly answered all of our questions (and there were a lot of them) and was extremely helpful with planning out the reception entertainment.

The wedding day was filled with the best music in the world - 90's RnB and HipHop. It was our request and DJ Nick pulled off one of the best sets ever. Accompanied by his brother, the team were wonderful hosts and provided the day with an extra layer of fun.

We're so impressed by the enthusiasm, attention to detail, and compassion displayed by the whole team at SoCal Mobile Events!

Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the music/entertainment throughout the entire day. There wasn't a single moment that the dance floor wasn't fully occupied by bobbing heads and the running man. Thank you again to DJ Nick and the team for making our wedding day special.

We'll definitely keep in touch for future parties/events!

If your looking for a positive, fun, funny, and professional DJ, Nic is your man! He is amazing. He showed up 2 hours before his scheduled time and was more then prepared by the time my husband and I showed up!

He played all my songs on my list and my family and I danced the entire night! He catered to all the audience, young and old. He followed my wedding program to the T!

He was great from beginning to end. His emcee skills are so professional while throwing in his humor. 5 stars plus 5 stars for Nic! I would highly recommend him for any event! Especially a wedding. It's rare to find such a pro on a hectic wedding day. But he impressed all of us!

If we could add another star to this rating we would. We would recommend him in a heart beat and plan to keep his contact info around for anyone that might ask us if we know a great DJ. Nick did an amazing job from the day we first contacted him to the end of our wedding reception. We had no idea what we were doing when planning our special day and he answered every single question and concern with an awesome attitude. He followed all our requests to the letter while creating an awesome playlist and kept the whole event flowing seamlessly.

Nick thank you so much for doing such an the awesome job so that we could take the time enjoy and remember our special day!

Nick, I can't thank you enough for making My Husband's 40th Surprise Party a magical one. When I asked for recommendations on FB for a Great DJ you can imagine all the recommendations I received. A few people mentioned SoCal Mobile DJ and I knew I had to get in touch with you, but to my surprise you had already reached out to me. The whole process was professional and painless, by emailing me the e-signature contract, paying through email, emailing you a few of his favorite songs, and just keeping in touch. You had us on the dance floor all night. You took the playlist and "MIXED IT UP" to where you took us back to the days! When I am asked for recommendations for a DJ, I will gladly say, "Contact Nick with SoCal Mobile DJ you will not be disappointed!!!" With All Our Hearts We Thank You, The Granillo Family More...

I looked everywhere for just the right person to DJ at my son’s wedding, I found Nick and was sold based on all the positive reviews and he did not disappoint: he was prompt to respond to calls and emails, working with him was easy and communication flowed smoothly. Thanks to Nick, it was one of the best nights of my life: music was superb, the wedding guests danced the night away, he played the songs on the bride and groom’s list plus any other songs requested, he was energetic and kept the celebration going throughout the evening!

This review is way over due! DJ Jay did a beyond amazing job! Super cooL and easy going guy! He showed up on time to set up and was super easy to work with. Tell him what kind of music you want to listen to and he has it. At the beginning of the party I asked him to just play whatever music fits the vibe and he did just that. Durning dinner time we had guest already dancing in their seats ready to get on the dance floor. This was for a graduation party so i had close family and friends and co workers over and they all had a great time dancing. He even joined the crowd by throwing up some fist pumps from his station and got them going even more. I had people asking where I found him because they liked his energy; I met him at my company Christmas party that he DJ for. He will always be my go to DJ! Thank you so much again Jay for an awesome job and look forward to working with you again soon! More...

Omg, so what great things can I say about Nick that haven't already been said on his reviews. Let me just say that there is no way you can go wrong in picking Him to be your DJ/MC. He is a super people person, down to earth and super awesome. He will help you out for any of your requests as a DJ and definitely goes the extra mile to make you a satisfied customer. For our wedding on March 10, he played all the right music and took all the requests, he hyped up the guests and had everyone dancing on the dance floor. We will definitely go with him again when ever we have another event. Thanks again Nick More...

I was in a little bit of a bind a few months ago when my October wedding was quickly approaching and I didn't have a DJ. However, it was quickly resolved when I came across SoCal Mobile DJ online and submitted an inquiry. Nick was amazing to speak with and I am so glad he was persistent in rescheduling our initial chats when I would cancel them due to my crazy schedule. He was easygoing, professional, and enthusiastic. I appreciated his genuine character and passion for what he does. I felt as if I could trust him from the first conversation I had with him. And, my trust was well placed since he matched us with the perfect DJ for our reception, Jay! Jay was absolutely amazing!! I cannot express how thankful I am that my husband and I were able to have him at our wedding. He's very easy to work with and quite professional. Jay knows what he's doing and how to keep a party going. His energy and enthusiasm are contagious. Our dance floor was poppin', and I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of dancers on the dance floor. We heard compliment after compliment about Jay and his song choices. One guest even told me that she wished she had our music played exactly as it was for her wedding reception! In short, Jay is good at what he does, and any couple would be lucky to have him at their wedding. 5 stars for SoCal Mobile DJ and for Jay!!! More...

I was recommended SoCal Mobile DJ by a friend of mine and I could not be happier with hiring him. Nic took control of the crowd and announced the events perfectly on time. I was so worried about the music that I had several meeting with Nic and he was so patient with me. The day of the wedding came and wow!! The dance floor stayed packed all night. It was so packed that we had to remove not 1, but 2 tables.

Bottom line is planning a wedding is stressful but if you hire SoCal Mobile DJ you will have one less thing to worry about.

A few nights before the wedding, DJ Nick called and we talked about the type of dance music that I wanted for the night, and Nick hit the nail right on the head. The music was PERFECT! DJ Nick kept everyone energized throughout the night, and even my parents, who are very particular about their music, loved it.

Potential Clients,

I can't speak highly enough about Nick. He is an extremely down to Earth guy and prioritizes each one of his clients. Have a question? Shoot him an email/text/phone call and you'll have an answer sooner than you think.

We hired Nick to DJ our wedding after attending a previous wedding he Dj'd. Not only was he extremely easy to get a hold of, he was ORGANIZED. That's hard to find these days when doing anything- so when he put me on the spot, I knew he was the right choice.

Nick was prompt, specific and ready to go the day of the wedding. He hooked us up at the ceremony and at the reception area (same vicinity, but different areas).

Nick left us speechless and was incredible to communicate with. We can't praise him enough!!! He's the man if you plan on having a bad ass wedding!!

My husband found SoCal Mobile DJ on one of the wedding websites and with all the stresses of wedding planning, working with Nick has been the least stressful part. The reception was tasteful where needed but he also got the crowd on their feet and dancing post reception. We also went with SoCal Mobile DJ for our uplighting & slide-shows projection (did a great job synching the one slide show with music on two opposite ends projectors). We immensely appreciate his professionalism--email correspondences were returned quickly, requests for phone and in-person meetings were arranged without any difficulties. Thank you, Nick! More...

There are no words to describe how immensely grateful we are to have Nick on our team. He is not only a great DJ/MC, but a very personable guy. When we had our first meeting with him via Skype and told him our idea of a Lego themed wedding, he was not only very encouraging about it, but even offered to dress up as a Lego character! We knew immediately that Nick was the man of our Lego dreams! Ha!

We met with Nick on numerous occasions leading up to our wedding day and the thing that impressed us the most was his open minded attitude about everything we suggested. He even helped us come up with ideas for some games we wanted to play during the reception (which was a big hit with our guests). He kept our guests off their seats and onto the dance floor, which is pretty amazing since our friends and family are not the dancing type.

All in all, Nick is a great guy, a superb DJ and an excellent MC. He was an important building block to our Lego wedding and we will definitely be keeping him in mind for other events in the future.

I feel so lucky to have found Nick! The DJ we had hired had to cancel last-minute for a charity event that I was chairing, and Nick totally saved me!

Nick was our DJ/MC and he also did our up-lighting for our wedding reception this past Saturday and he was AMAZING! He was really good and really fun! We liked how he did a lot of MCing and played the music we wanted to hear. I've been to weddings where the DJ is super boring and doesn't MC at all, and that was not the case with Nick. He did a great job with MCing and DJing. And the up-lighting was awesome! Also he let us make our song list for the whole reception, which was cool because we got to choose what we wanted to hear. He gave us a reasonable price, compared to other DJs in the LA/Long Beach area. And also he was communicating with me back and forth on email for several months before the wedding to make sure everything was perfect. Also he let us choose the custom up-lighting. We choose tiffany blue, which matched our wedding colors perfectly. He was a really fun DJ/MC and was super nice! We highly recommend him! More...

I'm so happy I found Nick to DJ our wedding! He was beyond helpful in the process of planning the music and timeline for our reception. He made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it and was so understanding when I added a couple of songs to our music selection last minute.My husband, our family/friends, and I aren't usually the type to dance and are more of a laid back group, so it was so refreshing to see Nick working with our photographers and us the entire night to make sure we were happy with each event we had planned.To our surprise as soon as Nick announced the dance floor was open and turned down the lights we had a crowd ready to party! He kept the music going and took requests which made our night so much fun! We can't thank Nick enough for making our night so special and highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a professional, friendly, and flexible DJ! More...

Nick did a fantastic job from the beginning until the end! He was professional at all times and kept in great communication. Any questions I had for him I answered right away.
First of all, he does a great job of sticking to your time line and helpful figuring the best ways to do that before and during the event. He matches the style of music you want perfectly! My recommendation would be to let him perform his art, if you don't limit him to much like we did, he filled the wedding with the exact romantic and lively vibe we were looking for. This is his art let him do his thang. Trust! Once the dancing started, the dance floor stayed packed. Almost everyone was out of their chair.
Lastly, and actually very importantly, he was a fantastic announcer. His voice has a pleasant sound that moved the crowd where we needed them without feeling like we were at a baseball game.
I recommend purchasing the uplighting add add-ons from him. They boost your venue in a way that takes your breathe away.
Nick thank you so much for all your hard work!

Totally recommend Nick to anyone looking for a dj. We originally found him on yelp & knew we wanted to book him right after our first meeting. He was always available to us & was much more than just a DJ. He was able to help give advice/ professional opinion & guide us with timelines. He gave us a great price with a packaged deal for everything we needing to make our wedding come together.

Nick was our awesome DJ for our wedding on 9/3/2016.  He was simply the best DJ ever.  The dance floor was ALWAYS packed.  He worked with us ahead of time to make sure our music was to our liking and made recommendations based on his years of experience.  He also worked well with my wedding coordinators the day of our event.  He has a professional and organized demeanor and has an energetic musically-inclined soul.  I would recommend him to anyone having a big event! I could see why his reviews were so high when we first found him.  Simply said "he knows what he is doing" and you could tell that "he loves what he does."  Thank you so much for making our special a day so memorable.  p.s. my feet ached days after from all the dancing.

Searched high and low for a wedding DJ for my Wedding.  I checked many wedding websites, a wedding vendor show in Ontario, and Yelp.   Some DJ's were booked (we were looking 6 months prior to the actual date) which was to be expected, some DJ's never called back - which was a surprise, but Nick at So Cal Mobile DJ called back - right away.  I had never booked a DJ before, so I had lots of questions for Nick, and he answered all of them quickly (email, phone/text).  His rate seemed reasonable compared to other DJ's, and he assured us the wedding would be Great.  He helped a lot with his experience, ideas, and venue knowledge, and knowing what kind of music people would like.  He met up with us weeks before the wedding to make sure all the details were in order, and helped us plan our timeline.  He was reassuring, friendly and funny.  Fast forward to the wedding - everything worked out perfect, all the music was great, and his MC and DJ skills were awesome.  I would recommend him to friends and family in a heartbeat.  Thanks DJ Nick - So Cal Mobile DJ!  You made my our special day a success.

Nick was our official DJ for my niece's First Holy Communion Party. Best decision I ever made. We are from India and he had no trouble blending in some of our Bollywood music and even our very own traditional Goan Kokani Masala folk dance into the mix. People were kicking off their shoes and dancing like it was the last night of their lives. Truly an amazing experience. Our family and friends are still talking about what a blast the party was and what a great job the DJ did. In addition to the music he also included our theme color in uplights, which transformed our very simply venue into a beautiful party hall. If you are reading this review I guarantee you, you will be making one of the best choices of your life.Thanks Nick! We had family and friends from all over the world for this occasion and you certainly made it a memorable one! More...

Nick Alvarado of SoCal Mobile DJ is simply the best DJ around! We had hired him to DJ a Super Bowl party for our friends and family. His set up was placed outside while the game action was inside the house. As soon as he started playing guest began to move to the patio where he was set up curious to see him dj. He began the set playing 90s hip hop which was the perfect selection for the guest we had! Guest forgot there was a game going on and began to dance, they had no choice as he's selection of songs just made everyone gravitate to the dance floor. What amazed me even more was his mixing skills! One song flowing seamlessly right into the next one. That is a talent that not a lot of Djs have. But you can tell that Nick has put in the work to perfect his craft.
After the event I asked him if he could give me some tips as I had been flirting with the idea of becoming a DJ myself. Not only did he give me tips but he took me under his wings to teach me all the ins and outs of the business. I couldn't have picked a better person to mentor me on my own journey. He is the definition of a true professional. This past 7 years Ive have learned so much from him. From giving excellent costumer service, attention to detail, being on time, appearance, working well with other vendors, MC skills, mixing skills etc. I could go on and on of all the knowledge Ive gain from him.
If your looking for a Dj and hes available on your date, (he's that busy) hire him immediately on the spot! You wont regret it

Our DOC had recommended a DJ who was already booked for our wedding date in December, he recommended Nick and I am so thankful! Nick was great to work with, friendly, very professional and organized. He was easy to get ahold of and very quick with responses when we had questions ahead of time. Music was a high priority for us, and he really listened to the specific songs we wanted to hear and also our general vibe. He really kept the party moving and so many of our guests have raved about how great the music was. The energy of our reception was so fun and I attribute a lot of it to the great atmosphere Nick created! We would highly recommend Nick to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding or event. Thanks Nick!! Lindsay and Arthur More...

Nick is an awesome DJ! He was our DJ for our wedding and reception in August 2015. He got every persons name right, played every song that I requested, and he kept the party upbeat all night. I had a song picked for the father daughter dance that I loved, but it had one lyric at the end that I did not like.. Nick cut that song at the perfect moment! He provided a lot of much needed help when choosing my ceremony music. He really took the time to make sure every detail was perfect. Nick was very knowledgable about music and promptly answered all of my questions and offered advise when I asked. We did most of our discussions via email or phone calls which was exactly what I wanted. Planning a wedding can be so stressful on the bride and any face to face appointments that I could avoid, I did. He called me a few days before and made sure that he had every persons information correct and checked to make sure I was sticking to my latest song choices (I was constantly changing my mind.. I thought I was going to drive him crazy with my emails)  he even kept all of my back up songs on hand just in case I changed my mind last minute. I would highly recommend Nick to anybody. He is professional (He also dresses very nice for the event),knowledgable, kind, sincere, helpful and fun! More...

We had our wedding with Nick as our DJ this September and Nick was awesome!  He was detail-oriented to our requests and program which saved us A LOT headache on the chaotic wedding day! When he found out our ceremony hostess is not a professional officiant but our sister in law, he made sure to prep our sister in law for public speaking ~ how thoughtful is that! Hiring Nick as our DJ was the greatest favor we did to ourselves because he really went above and beyond to help out! Nick was more like a super capable coordinator at our we'd and on top of that, he played music!! Thank you so much Nick! More...

First off, Nick was an excellent DJ! He answered all our calls and questions promptly and professionally. We had explored other options, but the cheesy spills ultimately led my wife and I to a DJ who just seemed. .. genuine. And that's what we wanted for our wedding.

We were a little worried Nick wouldn't be able to accommodate our need for both English and Spanish music, but thankfully, we were wrong! Nick himself is familiar with Spanish music and also has help for such request. We also had a unique performance for our entrance, which Nick handled perfectly. The wedding planner guide was extremely helpful. The music selection was great. The MCing was spot-on, and the overall experience with Nick was perfect. I'd recommend him, without a doubt!

My husband found Nick through Yelp as we were planning our wedding. Based on everyone else's review, we went ahead and met up with him. He's really down to earth & being the kind of bride who wanted to make sure everything would turn out perfect and to make sure everyone was going to have a good time.. Of course, having an awesome DJ/EMCEE was a must and he reassured me that there was nothing to worry about. Like what all the other yelpers said, Nick is very good at getting back to us when I needed to ask him questions. We gave him the list of music that we wanted played at our wedding and he made sure they were played :) Also, when we walked into our reception, I was kinda worried that 8 up lights wouldn't be enough to set the room.. and to my surprise there was more! We loved it! Our gobo was also perfect! Simple, yet elegant. Nick kept my family on the dance floor the whole night (especially my mom..) THAT tells us we picked an awesome DJ! A couple days before the wedding, he called us to go over the names of our bridal party & that's considerate of him to make sure he didn't butcher their names. He's very professional and passionate in what he does! Thank you Nick for keeping the party on all night! We had a great time at our wedding! :) More...

Top notch. Nick and SoCal Mobile DJ worked with us to make our wedding truly memorable. Having a music background ourselves, getting the music at our wedding right was important to both of us and not an easy task. We have extremely strong opinions about music, but wanted our guests to dance to songs they were familiar with at the same time. Nick worked with us beforehand to develop a soundtrack for our event that both satisfied our discriminating taste and appealed to our parents' friends. Throughout the night, people repeatedly approached my wife and I to ask if they could get a copy of the play list from the evening... Do you have that Nick?  Nick is knowledgeable, friendly, prompt, easy to talk to, and easy to get a hold of.

My husband and I were pleased that he provided us with suggested time frames and song choices. On the day of the wedding he had set up hours before the guests arrived and made sure transitions ran without trouble. In our particular case, he even covered for the lack of mariachi that was supposed to be part of the cocktail hour. We greatly appreciated his save on that. He kept the crowd dancing all night and made sure to read the audience as well as keep the songs different. He didn't stick to one genre, which we both loved.

We had to make some schedule changes on the fly and Nick made everything flow effortlessly. He coordinated with our other vendors like our photographer and videographer to give them a heads up when certain events were going to happen so they'd be ready. The games were great, the intros were great, and the dancing was awesome. Everyone said they had a great time. We even heard a couple guests say they'd hire Nick for their next party.

I had my 40th birthday party in May and needed a dj.  I yelped a few dj's and came across DJ Nick.  The 3 main things I was concerned about was:  the venue, the dj, & the photobooth in that order.  So getting a good dj was a big deal to me.  I did my research, watched videos of DJ Nick & let me tell you, DJ Nick came through.   He was friendly, polite, easy to work with, on time, prompt, you name it.  I honestly didn't know the guy at all so I was nervous, but I didn't have to worry about him at all.  He kept the music playing and there was plenty of dancing all night and I have the pics to prove it.  I also put together a slideshow and DJ Nick took care of the rest.  He provided the screen and projector and I was able to drop the bomb on my guest via the slideshow that my girlfriend and I got engaged.  It was classic.  Honestly, DJ Nick was a big part of that.  I was running around a lot that night trying to be a good host so the night was kinda blurry, but I asked a lot of my guests what they thought about the dj and everybody gave positive feedback.  What can I say?  The man did his thang!

My now husband and I had Nick DJ at our wedding.  He was great with emails and phone calls always with in a day he would respond. When we almost didnt get him since we wanted the MC to speak English and Spanish he said that wasn't a problem, had a friend who would help him. The day of the wedding he was punctual and ready to start when it was time. We fell behind a few minutes  on the schedule, he knew that we needed to get through certain events before the photographer left, he took the initiative to speak with our photographer and rearrange our schedule to make sure we got everything photographed. When he came over and told us that I thought wow dont have to worry about figuring out a new schedule now. He did a great job of keeping people on the dance floor. We had a few guests mention how good the music was. Would definitely recommend! More...

I work for a nonprofit in Los Angeles that helps at-risk youth and Nick has volunteered his DJ services at three of our Walkathons. We've asked him to play lively, family friendly music and he always delivers. Several people have approached me after the events to ask who the great DJ was so that tells you what a great job he does. He also volunteers at our annual Career Day and talks to our students about what it's like to be a DJ and how they can choose that as a career and is in the process of creating a DJ workshop for our kids (all on a volunteer basis!). On top of it all, he's an incredibly nice guy and is easy to work with. I can't recommend Nick and SoCal Mobile DJ highly enough. Hire him. You won't be disappointed. More...

He was very responsive throughout the process, worked well with our Day-of coordinator to be sure that every one was on the same page and flowed seamlessly. Nick arrived early, provided the sound equipment for our ceremony, which was being held outdoors, and ran a sound check with our officiant. He provided lighting (uplights and dance floor lights) for our reception as well which were an amazing touch to set the mood for our wedding. The music selection was great, pleased all of our guests and kept the dance floor full at all times! He is very personable, fun, and knowledgeable and I cannot recommend him enough! More...

He played great music and everyone complimented on how great he was!

I cannot say enough about how great Nick was at our wedding (1/3/15) and before! We met with Nick about 8 months before our wedding and we instantly knew that he was our guy.  He has a great energy and attitude, and makes sure that we are happy.  We met with many other DJs before deciding on Nick.  I am not going to name names, but 1 of them wanted to make the event more of a promotion for his company. And another guy told us that he wanted us to fill out a questionnaire of stories about each other so that if there was a lull that he could fill space with information and stories that we shared with him, as though he knew us for years.  Um no... I think that if a DJ needs to fill time with stories, then he probably isn't very good at his job. There shouldn't be a need for time filling that doesn't utilize music.  Back to Nick. Nick is super communicative (what every event planner and bride needs - someone who responds quickly and picks up the phone when you call)  At the wedding itself, Nick brought the mood, emotion and energy through sound and song bringing the senses of our celebration to life. We danced hard and everyone had an incredible time letting loose and letting themselves get lost in the moment of this great celebration. Nick read the crowd well, understood our wishes and desires, and found the groove we needed to make our night a fantastic event. We appreciate all his intuition, perception and hard work.Whenever we have another event and need music and MCing - Nick will be our go to. More...

Nick was a great dj playing songs I requested and appeasing the crowd. Would highly recommend! Even changed to indoors without a complaint when it was raining.

I've seen this guy play at house clubs, underground raves, wedding parties and backyard bbq's. The man can do it all. No bullshit, he can adapt to whatever the scene is and get everybody up on the dance floor. Definately going to hire him for my wedding! More...

If your looking for a positive, fun, funny, and professional DJ, Nic is your man! He is amazing. He showed up 2 hours before his scheduled time and was more then prepared by the time my husband and I showed up! He played all my songs on my list and my family and I danced the entire night! He catered to all the audience, young and old. He followed my wedding program to the T! He was great from beginning to end. His emcee skills are so professional while throwing in his humor. 5 stars plus 5 stars for Nic! I would highly recommend him for any event! Especially a wedding. It's rare to find such a pro on a hectic wedding day. But he impressed all of us! More...

Hiring Nic was the best decision I've made for my wedding. The guy who was suppose to direct the wedding drop the ball and was no where to be found , so Nic took charge and handled it and it really saved my wedding. He made everything roll smooth. He was super nice and attentive. Oh not to mention a kick ass DJ! He played great music with seamless transitions and had the party jumping. Seriously I was so impressed with this guy and I highly recommend him for your wedding! More...

We contracted with DJ Nick for our wedding. Nick was a true professional. He arrived on time, set up systems both inside and outside, and coordinated with the site staff to ensure that everything ran smoothly. His rates were reasonable and his service outstanding. We loved the music selection. Thank you, Nick, for helping to make our wedding the most memorable night of our lives. More...

I am a wedding coordinator and just worked with DJ Nick at Smog Shoppe. As I tell all of my clients, it is so important to hire good and reliable vendors. Nick is absolutely a good and reliable vendor. You can feel certain he will be on time (actually early), come prepared and do a great job, making sure all of the guests are enjoying the music. You'll be in great hands having Nick DJ your party! More...

Nick did our wedding this weekend, and he was amazing!!!! Our guests said they had  so much fun and that he was great! He is well priced and very professional.  He also was very careful to do things like we asked him to - a plus when it comes to weddings!! I definitely recommend him for any event! More...

Nick was the DJ for our wedding in October. We couldn't be happier with his service. Our reception was shorter than most and we had to keep a very tight timeline. We had a Venue Coordinator, but not a wedding coordinator to keep us on track. We gave Nick our minute by minute list of events for the reception and he perfectly kept us on track all while providing great music out of great sounding equipment. That was huge for us, we had so many places to be and he kept us moving. He worked well with the other vendors. His set up for the speeches worked perfectly, he transitioned from song to song without breaking the momentum and he kept the dance floor packed until the venue kicked us out. Absolutely, highly recommend you consider him when booking a DJ for an event. More...

Great to work with. I would use him again. He even came to our rehersal to check out the venue. He also got all the Jewish songs requested. Good attitude.

4 October 2014

We booked Nick shortly after meeting him for our wedding reception. As you can see from other reviews he comes highly recommended, and is reasonably priced for the level of professionalism.

Above the standard DJ responsibilities we relied on Nick heavily to keep us on track throughout the evening. We had a short reception, and a lot to do in the small amount of time. We did not have a wedding coordinator to keep us on track, but we gave Nick our timeline and he kept us moving and on time all evening. That was a huge help and a load off our minds as my wife and I had so much going on.

Nick played everything we asked him to, filled in the gaps flawlessly and squeezed in some requests from our guests. He worked well with our other vendors and the microphone pa set up for the speeches went off without a hitch.

DJ Nic and his assistant are the best! He not only keeps the party rolling, but he is incredibly kind, generous, and does his best to honor all your requests. We had two venues yet were on a tight budget, so Nick worked on getting us a price that was affordable but didn't compromise on quality. On top of that, we had a whole laundry list of songs (including obscure Cambodian songs for my parents and their friends), events, and MC requests. Nick graciously met with us prior to the wedding to make sure he understood everything so that the big day would run smoothly. Come wedding day, things changed, but Nick rolled through the punches and kept everyone on the dance floor. I'm serious when I say everyone was partying hard and told me at the end of the night that the wedding was a blast. Thank you, Nick! The music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were spot on! More...

Nick was the DJ at our wedding on June 8th. He is awesome, professional and easy going, I will recommend him in a heart bit for any event. Best part about Nick is that he gives you the option to choose the songs that you want in the reception, he played most of the songs we choose and made the party fun and crazy just like we wanted it to be. All our guest had the best time in our wedding. Nick was also very affordable. GREAT DJ. Thank you so much for making our wedding so special and fun! More...

I just want to tell you that Nick did an amazing Job at our wedding (8/29/14).  Even though we gave him a list of artist and songs to play (which is what he requested), he really knows how to read the crowd and play music that gets people on the dance floor.  Everyone of our guests has said the DJ was one of the best!  I HIGHLY recommend Nick for any event.  He is professional, easy going, and really knows how to tailor to one's specific needs.  Not to mention, we felt he was very affordable.  Nick, thank you again for making our day memorable!Serg + Tavi More...

We used Nick recently for our wedding on 8/31 on the beach in Long Beach. He did a wonderful job! Nick worked well with the Hawaiian entertainment we also hired. He played the songs we requested but also read the crowd well and played what kept them dancing. He did great with working with me and husband to ensure things went the way they wanted. He did a great job with announcing as well. Super friendly and good at what he does. Would recommend him to anyone needing a DJ. More...

We recently had Nick play at our wedding reception. He was a total professional in all aspects. He got back to us very quickly if we had any questions, was kind and patient and listened to all of our needs and concerns. He allowed us to mix in a custom list of 25 songs which made the night have much more of a personal touch. We were able to request some of our favorite songs along with some others that we knew our friends and family would have liked. Our reception was bilingual and had both english and spanish speakers. He was able to keep everyone happy and on the dance floor. Hes got a great ability to read the crowd and adapt accordingly. Everyone had a blast and people were dancing way more than I had expected. We played a wide range of music such as Reggae, Salsa, Merengue, Banda, Cumbias, Hip Hop , 80's, 90's amongst other genres. He mixed the genres in very nicely to say the least! As a bonus he is an excellent event MC, he worked very well with our wedding coordinator and kept the reception flowing smoothly. Things such as the grand entrance, first dances, father/daughter, toast speeches were all handled by Nick. It helped to add more structure to the reception and made things piece together nicely. He also had a spanish speaking assistant who was able to translate announcements into spanish for the crowd ( someone had lost their car keys, etc). He was very attentive and even called a few days prior to the reception in order to get the correct pronunciation for our last names. That was a great personal touch and showed us that he took the extra step to make sure the night went as smooth as can be.He is a very nice guy and is very easy to get along with as well, that made the experience that much smoother. His rates are more than reasonable and my wife and I are both VERY happy we found Nick. Do not hesitate to hire him for your event. We will for any future big parties for sure. More...

Nick is SO great!! We honestly didn't have a ton of planning communication with him, which was perfect since there's so much you have to worry about as the big day gets closer. We really just sent a few emails, had a phone call, and were good to go! He not only nailed what we wanted, but his personality is so laid back yet professional that you feel like he'd one of your buddies. If you want someone who will listen to what you want, give you any additional suggestions, and bring his A-game to your wedding (or any special event) he's the guy for the job! I would recommend him to anyone :) More...

Nick did an AMAZING job of DJing our wedding on June 20th 2014!I have to say that I was a little concerned on his quality given the exceedingly reasonable fees he charges. ..  BUT he completely out did himself and exceeded our expectations!As a Bride who likes Cafe Del Mar style music, Bossa Nova, Jazz and Swing, with a Groom that LOVES Metallica, and guests with MUSICAL TASTES ACROSS THE BOARD, I was REALLY LOST at what direction to give Nick in regards to music choices...  So I gave NONE...  and even with this challenge, Nick SAVED THE DAY and was an ABSOLUTE PLEASURE to work with!!On the day, he did the following:1.  Arrived early and well dressed2.  Was all setup on time3.  Patient with delays4.  Kept us on schedule5.  Got our guests dancing!  Oh and a bonus, when we scaled back on the order by canceling the uplighting, he re-quoted me with less than the original without my asking because i wasn't getting the lighting...  HOW HONEST IS THAT?!  That is WAY MORE than my makeup artist did because she charged me WAY over what was originally agreed upon!I cannot recommend Nick more!!  He gave guidance on timelines, song picks for events like the father/daughter dance, followed our one big request which was to play the dinner playlist in order that it was provided (this was a gift from one of our friends), and was even able to download music ON THE FLY!He was flexible with our needs, was very responsive and understanding of last minute craziness that we had to deal with!So many people enjoyed getting on the dance floor and dancing, from funk to salsa!  He even had my Dad on the dance floor!THANK YOU NICK for making our wedding SO MEMORABLE!We would definitely look for Nick for all such future events and would recommend him to all our friends!!!  :)THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, NICK!

Nick rocked the Queen Mary (Long Beach,CA) for my recent wedding! He was referred to my husband and I by one of the Queen Mary's preferred vendors. I am so glad he was available and that he was the perfect fit for our somewhat destination-style wedding. Nick made the process super simple with email and phone conversations during the early planning stages. Payment was easily accepted via paypal. He also met with us in person a week before the wedding to introduce himself and further work through getting to know us and our personal event. On the day of the wedding he was set up, ready to rock and roll with great professionalism. He encouraged us to remember if there is anything we need, ANYTHING, he will be happy to help. I REALLY appreciate his offering to help and willingness to coordinate above and beyond the call of duty. Nick had a timeline set up but was not rushed or tight on making the times and even was able to switch my mother/bride father/bride dances last minute. The wedding was excellent, his lighting set up added to the excitement. I received quite a few compliments from friends and family on how great Nick was.  He was wonderful at sensing the crowd and keep the dance floor hot, knowing when to cut songs early if needed- all we had to do was nod at him. He was also great at transitioning from one song to another seamlessly. I know we put him to the test with a small wedding (55 people only) and most of our friends and family were visiting from the east coast (well past their bedtimes. Ha!) but he kept them pumped from kids to adults. The whole reception (4 hours) flew by. Thank you so much, Nick. Will suggest you to friends or family members in the area needing a quality DJ and wish you the best going forward. More...

Nick did a wonderful job. My fiancée and I really have no taste for music but submitted a list to him anyway.  It was a satisfying feeling to hear the music in the background as we were taking our wedding pictures after the ceremony. Even more satisfying was the dance music. I had a hodgepodge of guests and Nick knew what were good songs that appealed to all. More...

Nick is the best at what he does!!! We hired him for my daughter's wedding reception and he really delivered. He was very professional from the first contact through the reception. He responded quickly to all our emails and phone calls. Spoke with the bride regarding what she envisioned the reception to be like. Showed up early and was ready to go even earlier that he needed to be. During the reception, he kept everything flowing and once the dance music started; the dance floor was overflowing until the party ended. We are still receiving complements about his music that night and how it was the "Best wedding ever!" If you are thinking about a d.j., I highly recommend him and I  would definitely use him again! Thanks for making it a great party Nick! More...

Nick was not one of the DJs that I initially contacted on Wedding Wire, but one of the DJs I did contact (who was already booked) recommended him. After that recommendation, I did notice the SoCal Mobile DJs Wedding Wire page and Nick’s history of positive reviews. When it came to final selection (it was down to Nick or a national company that was working with us from an office in another state), we settled with Nick because we already knew who the DJ would be, which was important since we locked on the DJ only a few weeks before the wedding, and he had a local phone number. Nick was responsive and we did all of our planning through email and phone calls as we planned long distance. His planning worksheet helped me consider the order of events for the night and also organize the music for the different segments of the evening. Nick had DJ’d at our venue before, so that put me at ease knowing that he knew where to go, and his positive comments about the venue and staff were helpful since I didn’t see the venue until the week of the wedding. When it came to the big night, Nick was laid back and flexible as we modified parts of the event flow. When we finally got to the dancing, Nick’s mixes got practically everyone up on their feet and the dance floor stayed packed until the final song of the night. He did a great job of letting the event run. He spoke up to MC events as needed to ensure things ran smoothly, but he didn’t take over the night. Nick did such a great job working the dance tunes that I was told by some of my relatives that the security guard had to earn his pay keeping passersby out and informing them it was a private party. As people walked by, there were some that looked through the windows and wanted to come in and join the dancing! A number of family members commented that the DJ was great. Nick’s skills definitely set the tone for the party! More...

Nick was one of our best wedding vendors. Every time we spoke via phone he was professional and thorough.  He offered to meet with us in person, but due to my then fiancé and I being tight on time, we were not able to do so.  Regardless, we felt confident in Nick's ability to deliver a quality service.  Nick arrived to the reception at least an hour early to get set up.  When we first saw him prior to the reception starting, he greeted us warmly and exuded calmness.  He was dressed nice for the occasion (we had a evening reception) and professionally.  Nick was the perfect host.  He had great energy without being over-the-top, evasive, or cheesy.  Nick allowed us to email him 25 songs prior to the wedding that we wanted to hear at the reception and, as far as I can remember, he played almost all or all of them!  In addition to the 25 dance/party songs, we provided some examples of the music type (Frank Sinatra, Louie Armstrong, etc.) we wanted played during dinner.  The songs he selected to fit this genre were on point.  Nick was detail-oriented and added a personal touch throughout the night that made my husband and I, our family, and other guests feel special.  For example, my Mom wanted to hear a specific oldies song.  When Nick played it, he didn't just play it; instead, he announced, "This next song is a special request from the Mother-of-the-Bride" which made her feel special!  On our list, we specified the song we wanted played 2nd to last and the one we wanted played last.  Before the song came on Nick announced, "This is the bride and groom's 2nd to last song of the night..."  After our final song played (romantic Frank Sinatra song), we decided we wanted to hear one last song that was more upbeat.  Nick was kind enough to accommodate our request.  We would use Nick again for a future event and we highly recommend him to anyone.

Nick was the easiest Vendor to work with!! We meet him in person a few weeks before the event and right away i knew he HAD to be our DJ! ! He was so easy to talk too and helped with everything. I must have emailed him a million times, and a million times more days before the wedding and he responded within a timely manner. I was never frustrated or wondering why he want responding. He even changed a couple of the song choices the night before the wedding. Nick catered too all of our musical needs. Me and my now Husband have very different musical likes and Nick gave us the perfect balance. and it flowed so perfect! if i were to do it all over again, Nick would still be our DJ! I had full trust in him and he went above and beyond all off our expectations. More...

Amazingly professional dj wedding and events services! Nick was really thorough with the process and gave us everything we needed to have a great dj/host for our wedding. He went through the details and made sure we felt good about song choices and event timeline before the big day. He also became ordained for the event and performed the ceremony! Not sure if he will be offering that as a service but he should he was amazing! I am so happy he was such a big part of our day! More...

1 September 2013

Nic ( SoCal Mobile DJ ) was absolutely amazing, from the first emails to the phone calls going over details and then the wedding. He knew exactly what to play when given free control over the second half of the evening, he's very good at feeling out the crowd and getting everyone into the music. Nic has all the proper DJ'ing equipment and takes what he does seriously, but you can see that he's really enjoying what he does and this translates in to a job well done for you!

I can't stress enough how instrumental Nic was in our reception going smoothly. We had no wedding coordinator so Nic not only fulfilled his duty as an amazing DJ, but he also made sure everything went as scheduled with the caterer and all the events of the evening. He is worth every penny of his fee, don't try to save a few bucks on some fly-by-night CraigsList dude, I almost convinced my wife to do this but I really had no idea how much of a role the DJ is playing.

Have Nic as your DJ... you'll have an awesome wedding, your guests will be happy, your new wife will be happy and so will you!

We recently hired Nick for our wedding this past July. He was awesome!! There are many DJ's to choose from and for the most part all of them have the same access to top of the line equipment and a variety of songs. So it can be stressful and time consuming to picking a single DJ. Nick, was extremely professional, efficient, and courteous. What really surprised me is Nick agreed to meet us at our rehearsal two days before the wedding. He was not being paid to be there, he did not ask to be paid to go, but knew it was important so he could be prepared for the wedding schedule. I was very impressed simply because he goes above and beyond!Nick is very detailed oriented before the event and during his preparations. And when the time comes he knows how to get a party started and keep it going. Also, we bypassed a website deal and did business directly through him. He doesn't drink or smoke, dresses for the occasion and does not advertise his business at your party. He is a real professional and most importantly he's just a nice guy!Hands down, I would hire Nick again if I ever need a DJ. I highly recommend Nick as a DJ for any event. More...

DJ Nick is awesome!  He was our DJ last month in July in Long Beach and I'm so happy we found him!  He cares about the wedding as much as the bride does!  He's very thorough and writes down all the details.  He'll go down the song list and timeline with you and makes sure your wedding will be perfect. A friend had told me that finding a good DJ will make or break your party, so I'm so glad he kept the party flowing and was so accommodating to me even the day of the wedding when I was changing things on him last minute.  Several friends at the wedding are engaged and looking for a DJ and they asked him that night if he was available for their wedding!  That speaks volumes if that's what the guests said too.  Trust me.  He's great at what he does.  Plus, he's overall a really nice guy!

Bottom line, Nick is a talented, professional DJ and a great, friendly guy! His rates are also extremely reasonable. I def recommend booking Nick for any of your events! More...

Nick was amazing. As a couple from out of town he was recommended by our Maid of Honor and eclipsed our expectations.

Our guests who traveled across the country all the way from New York are still raving about the music played during the wedding. More...

I found Nick through a deal online. I was in need of a DJ for a father/daughter dance and was on a tight budget. I was hesitant at first because I thought the price was too good to be true and I didn't wan it to be one of those "you get what you pay for" kinda of deal. He was awesome!! The dads and kids loved it. He was friendly and very punctual. I will definitely recommend him and look to using his services again!! Thanks Nick!! More...

Nick is AMAZING!!! He was born to spin. I hired Nick to DJ my huge, swanky party and every single guest fell in love with him. People literally danced the entire evening and there was a collective "awww"  from the crowd when he announced the last song was played :-) Nick is able to really read the crowd and play music that will really get people up and moving. His talent and knowledge of music spans generations and cultures. It doesn't matter what event you are planning, you need to call him now!! You will not be disappointed. Nick will be my permanent DJ for any event I plan in the future. He's that good!! More...

My company hired Nick for our holiday party this year, and I just can't recommend him enough! His prices were very competitive, and he was great about communication and even let us add on some lighting at the last minute. He played a great mix of music too. Eeven though company morale was pretty low this year and very few people actually danced, I still got lots of compliments on what was played and the overall atmosphere Nick helped to create. Don't hesitate- Nick is fantastic! More...

We turned to Wedding Wire and Yelp to find the right DJ for our 9-1-12 wedding, and we took a chance on hiring Nick. It turned out to be one of the best decisions we've ever made. For the months leading up to the event, we threw him all kinds of questions regarding our contract, music choices, etc., and he always responded timely and with professionalism and courtesy. No complaints there. To ensure that things went smoothly, he was very proactive at setting time aside a few days before the wedding to go over the reception schedule and confirm song choices. We were exceptionally pleased with the level of service before the actual date, but it was his "day of" performance that really impressed us.  We initially had a detailed reception schedule of when the reception events (garter toss, cake cutting, first dance, etc.) should have taken place. However, nothing ever goes 100% as planned, and Nick's ability to observe/read the crowd and recommend alternate solutions really made our reception run smoothly and kept the party going. On a side note, he's more than happy to take requests. Just know that because of the program he uses, it's easier to request songs by artist instead of genre. DJ Nick Alvarado was and remains a consummate professional, and I'm more than happy to recommend Nick for your reception (or other event). Thanks, Nick, for helping make our reception one that we'll remember for the rest of our lives! - Chris More...

I booked DJ Nick for my wedding and he did a great job. He is professional, and accommodating.  He knows how to read crowds and selected the right music to get everybody dancing all night long.  My wedding coordinator works with hundreds of DJ and was very impressed by DJ Nick. I would recommend him to my close friend and family. If you are getting married and need a great DJ, I would recommend booking DJ Nick. More...

As a banquet captain I work over 250 events a year. I have worked with Nick from So Cal Mobile DJ several times. Nick is not only professional, he is also personable and accomodating. Flexibility is an absolute must in this profession and he understands that. Also, one thing that many people don't realize is that a good DJ can't just spin tracks, they must also be a good MC. Nick is an excellent MC.Highly recommended! More...

We had an amazing wedding day, and Nick was a huge part of it all. We got married on the beach, and Nick really hustled to supply music and a microphone for our ceremony. It was no easy task as he had to get all of his equipment across over 100 yards of deep sand. For the reception Nick was a fantastic party DJ. We gave him a few artist/music suggestions and he nailed it!! All of our guests kept talking about how great the music was, and everyone danced all night. I would definitely recommend hiring Nick for your next event. Thanks Nick!!! More...

We hired Nick for our wedding on June 24th, and it was the best decision we've ever made.  If you are looking for a great professional DJ that knows what he's doing- look no further. Nick hit it out of the park. Everyone is still talking about how great the music was from beginning to end. He kept all of us dancing all night. We even got him to dance a couple of jams with us. His prices were also very reasonable. We went over everything we wanted to hear before the wedding and he did even better than we would have imagined. If i could give Nick 10 stars i would. We highly recommend him. Thank you Nick for a night we will never forget!!! More...

As a planner for the last 10 years I've probably gotten on the dance floor and danced maybe twice. And with the Dj? Never! Nick rocked it. Upon request of the Bride and Groom for an All 80's dance music set, he had everyone dancing and wanting more. And like I mentioned even I had to get out there and strut my stuff. I hope to work with Nick again. He made my client's happy and I had a blast getting to know him! Way to go Nick!! Viviana bellanotteevents.com More...

Nick DJ'd for my daughter's Sweet Sixteen Party.  He had the kids dancing from the minute they walked in at 8pm until the lights went back on at midnight.  He allowed my daughter to provide a playlist of 25 songs of her choice.  Nick was so easy to work with.  He responded quickly to all of my questions via e-mail or cell phone. He called to confirm the day before which I really appreciated because I was so stressed out about everything and he gave me one less thing to worry about.  He arrived early and set up quickly.  Nick was pleasant and professional throughout the event.  I would definitely recommend Nick to anyone needing a DJ (in fact, I already have), and I would certainly use him again myself!Thanks to DJ Nick for making my daughter's party SWEET!

I am an event coordinator. I have hired So Cal Mobile DJ many times, and I will continue to! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a DJ service! The owner, Nic, is responsive, professional, delightful to work with, and provides great pricing. Most importantly, my clients are always very happy. A DJ can make or break a party. And Nic knows how to make a party happen. He can read the crowd, and ALWAYS gets everyone dancing and having fun! Hire So Cal Mobile DJ. You will not be disappointed!! More...

I don't have a lot of friends who would fall into the "Bridezilla" category, but I have one or two friends who I know will eventually become Bridezillas, and I'm writing this review mostly so I remember who to tell them to call when their big day arrives. The music really makes the party, and the guy who came out to the party I attended from So Cal Mobile DJ really did his best to please everyone at the wedding. It worked! He kept us dancing all night!!Best part- no matter how drunk I got, he neither ignored me, nor did he start to get creepy! He just laughed it off and kept the music playing. More...

I found Nick Alvarado online and am so glad I did!  He exceeded my expectations in every way. He was super responsive and easy to communicate with through calls, email, and text.  He got every song on my playlist, arrived early, was setup on time, and attended to little things like dimming the lights. Nick is a fantastic DJ!  He knows how to read the crowd and played the right music at the right time. I wasn't sure if people would dance, but he managed to get a full-blown dance party going. I highly recommend Nick!  Plus, he's a nice guy. More...

DJ Nic Alvarado of So Cal Mobile DJ got the party started! I hired him for an afternoon company picnic. I called around and spoke to many DJ's before finding Nic. His knowledge and expertise surpassed the rest by far. He was open to my ideas and made great suggestions as well. He arrived on time and set up in a flash! I just gave him a few genres to work with and he was all over it. Normally you have to keep pestering the DJ to play your jams but he was on it. Planning a party is stressful. I am fortunate I found a professional truly gifted at his craft that gave me one less thing to worry about. His mixes/blends are seamless and sure to keep the party going. He helped me MC the party so there was never a dull moment.I have recommended him to my close friends for birthdays, weddings and special events with complete confidence. He has a great attitude and even hit the dance for with us for a couple songs. I couldn't have been happier with his services. More...

SoCal Mobile DJ (Nick Alvarado) is not only an amazing talent with great equipment, but really blew me away at how much he puts in to every event he is scheduled for. He is gracious in handling every venue's special requests and makes good suggestions to help pick out music and plan the events. He is prompt in showing up for set up and is flexible with changing demands. Our crowd loved the music that he played! He was able to please the entire crowd and able to read what people want to hear, even with the generation gaps that can happen at any event.  Outside of special events such as weddings, company parties, etc.  he has a great ear for mixing, putting beats together and is veteran status when it comes to House music. This guy knows his stuff! I would hire him for any event. More...

i was referred to Nic at SoCal Mobile DJ by a very good friend of mine, who is also a dj.  he spoke very highly of Nic's work and skills.  i took my buddy's endorsement as a good starting point to contact Nic when i was charged with contracting the dj for my sister's wedding.  i was SO glad i booked him for the event!  Nic was professional, pleasant, and provided a range of music that delighted everyone.  his rates are quite reasonable and it was evident that he had been doing weddings and similar events for a long time.  all details were covered seamlessly and with careful regard to what the happy couple wanted.  that, in and of itself, was a huge relief with so many other worries of details they had to handle.  i'd give SoCal Mobile DJ six stars if i could, but 5 will have to do.

I heard this DJ play at a friend's party, he had everybody dancing, even the older folks were toe-tapping. We all had a great time. I'd definitely have him play at any party I'd throw. Very smooth how he built us up and kept it going. He was awesome! More...

Nic was the DJ at a party in Azusa I had attended a few months ago. We had a blast dancing to the music he played. He had everything we asked for 80's, hip hop and house music. He was very friendly and sociable, he encouraged us not to be shy about any requests. The host asked Nic to pep up the crowd for a booty shaking contest which he did and did it well, it was hilarious! The DJ plays a big part in how the party goes, sometimes you go to a party and the music sucks or its too low or loud, that was not the case at this party. Overall he was great and I would highly recommend him for any occasion. More...

I hired Nic's DJ service for my birthday party. He was very friendly, organized and knowledgeable on a lot of different genre's of music. I'm glad he was because I am very picky about my music. He gave me a very good price quote and included the set-up and he even MC'd some of the party. This really set the tone and made my friends and family have a great time.I referred him to a couple family members and they also really enjoyed his service. As soon as I have my next big milestone I'll definitely hire him again. Plus he was super cute! More...

Q&A

The secret is a DEEP passion and love for what we do and putting our customers needs first. Your event your music pure and simple.

My style of mixing is very energetic and fun. I don't let the songs play for too long or cut them too short. I LOVE to dance as well so I understand the feeling and rhythm of a dancefloor.

I could go on and on about what I LOVE. I love every aspect of what I do from meeting the clients before the event to dee jaying and seeing everyone have the time of their lives the day of the event. Seeing my clients happy on the dance floor is what has kept me a DJ for the past 20 plus years.

I started dee jaying in 7th grade just because I loved seeing my friends have the time of their lives dancing to the music I played. The business aspect of my DJ career just kinda happened and took on a life of it's own. We now have 5 dee jays working for us and growing.

1. Over 90 plus 5 star reviews on Yelp
2. Winner of the “Couples Choice Award” on WeddingWire 5 years in a row
3. You and your guests will only hear the music you want.
4. We only carry the clean versions of today's music.
5. Communication is key. I'm always here to answer your calls, emails or texts.
6. Over 20 years of experience.
7. We LOVE what we do : )
8. We won't eat all the cake at your party.
