“As a couple who initially bonded over music, the sound of our day was just as important to us as the look, taste, and feel. Todd instantly understood what we meant by this and was able to execute it flawlessly. During the entire process of planning our wedding, and then on the big day itself, Todd was just what we hoped for – a true partner.”

Rather than simply using a one-size-fits-all, cookie cutter playlist and phoning it in, Todd gave us a soundtrack to the most important day of our lives that showed that he is both a consummate professional and a true lover of music. Most importantly though his selections made it clear that he understood what was special about us. We could not have asked for anything more.”

“…we wanted to reach out to you to say thanks for helping make our wedding such a memorable day! Your dance set was killer and we had so much fun! Thanks for curating such a personal selection of songs for us. Our family and friends raved about all the great music, and also couldn’t get over how “us” it was. All the little details were appreciated. I know I’ll never forget dancing with my new bride to Chuck Brown!”

“I always knew that when I finally got married, the most important thing of all was the dancing. Really, I just wanted one big fabulous dance party. Todd was recommended by our wedding planner and he did not disappoint. He totally got the energy and environment we were trying to create, right down to the mood lighting! His play list was unique and drew from both our requests as well as his own phenomenal music knowledge.
When we first met with Todd, I shared with him my vision for our dance party – 1980s Frat party combined with San Francisco Dance Club circa 1990 with a healthy dose of Motown, Swing, and Pop thrown in for good measure. Todd totally got it! The playlist he created captured years of happy dancing memories for this one amazing evening.
Whenever our wedding comes up in conversation, people still rave that it was one of the most fun weddings they’ve ever been to, and there’s no question that the dancing was a huge part of that! Thank you Todd!

“Todd Richard is an asset at any event.  His congenial style is icing on the cake when considering that he has impeccable taste in music and an innate sense of what his audiences want to hear next.  I have yet to encounter a DJ with a broader knowledge of music and as deep an appreciation for differing genres.  Whether it has been a wedding reception or a corporate reception gala, Todd has always provided stellar service.  I highly recommend Todd for any occasion.”
