Live band versus DJ is a classic debate, but when you encounter a group as cool as Dart DJ, it’s hard to go with anything else! I mean, who wouldn’t want a DJ group that has played with Vampire Weekend at their wedding?

Dart DJ is a boutique collective based in Los Angeles and San Francisco, but they create unique wedding experiences across the country and around the globe. From vinyl-only DJ sets to remixes specific to your event, Dart DJ more than surpasses the typical DJ experience.

Headed by Jesse Kivel of Kisses and Michael David of Classixx, every member of Dart DJ is a working DJ or musician. They have shared the stage with artists like Phoenix, Missy Elliott, Robyn, Cut Copy, Vampire Weekend, RAC, Toro Y Moi, Yacht, Sleigh Bells, Big Boi, Chromeo, Saint Etienne, The Flaming Lips, Ladytron and Spoon—big names!

Music is truly their passion, and they bring that energy to your event—whether that means digging through vinyl crates for that one song you have to hear or getting your grandmother out on the dance floor.

    First Dance- Coming Home by Leon Bridges
    Dart DJ is the perfect solution to the band vs DJ dilemma. They bring with them lots of experience in playing with real bands while being able to play music that caters to every guest at the wedding from my 82-year-old grandpa to my fiancé’s love for Ke$ha & Taylor Swift!

    I’m entering for a friend!

    But my husband and I danced to “I don’t dance” by lee Brice at our traditional Indian wedding. He loves country music and doesn’t dance, yet he danced to all the Indian dancing events to make my family happy :)

    Oops. I want Dart DJ for my friend’s wedding because she collects vinyls and recently been very stressed about wedding costs. She has superb mid-century modern taste, so I’m sure her wedding will be nothing but lovely.

  • My fiancé and I are getting married in Oakland next summer and we’re searching for a unique, funky, and hip DJ to book for our reception. Dart DJ seems like the perfect fit! I love that Dart DJ has loads of experience playing with some really heavy hitters in the music scene and that they seem totally into thinking outside the box when it comes to getting everyone out on the dance floor for a truly memorable evening. We’ll be dancing to Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” for our first dance. The song came on my ipod one evening when we were sipping wine in my living room and had just started dating. I remember thinking at the time how amazing it would be if this actually worked out and we would, indeed, stay together. I had no idea at that point that nearly 4 years later we would be engaged and planning our dream California wedding. Cheers!
