    Hi All,

    If anyone is looking for a DJ for their wedding. I highly recommend Franciso (Paco) Davila. He did an awesome job at my wedding. He showed up on time and was very professional. He was very good on getting back to me on any questions I had via email. You can also find him at Mango Deck Restaurant. His price was very reasonable and he even referred me to a guitarist name Aidan Mijares who did a awesome job at the ceremony. Aidan Mijares only charges $200 for an hour vs. DREAMS charges $350 & up for guitarist or TRIOS Band. So we save a few bucks.

    To contact Franciso Davila, please email at mister_davila@hotmail.com.

    Cheers
    Rhea

        Hi Mia,

        Paco plays all kinds of music. From 70's, 80's, Disco, salsa, Rock & Roll, hip hop, R & B, R & B Classic, Meringue, Alternative, Slow Jams etc......

        What's great about Paco is that he will send you a demo of music via email. Also, if you send him a list of music you'd like hear at your wedding. (i.e First dance, father & daughter dance, dinner reception, etc)... That would be helpful.

        Paco is a great guy, very easy to work with & very good on responding on emails.


        Cheers,
        Rhea

          Thanks for the info. I am trying to figure out whether to get a DJ or just rent speakers and use an iPod. Seems pretty pricy to just set up speakers at Dreams. If you have your ceremony and reception in two locations you get charged twice for the set up fee which is $200, so you pay $400 for just speakers and you have to have someone run your iPod. If I can find a DJ for not much more, I'd like to go that route. How much does Paco charge?

              Hi Sandyroo,

              Paco charged us $150 an hour. We used him for 4 hours.

              We to, were going to bring an ipod & laptop but then I starting stressing about who will be running the music.... I didn't want to ask or inconvience my family or friends. They were there to celebrate & party...lol!!! AND I found out Dreams fee for speakers rental & set up. We just decided to hire a DJ. It worked out so much better.

              As for your ceremony, i recommend you hire a guitarist. That is what we did. Paco referred us to his friend Aidan Mijares who is a guitarist. He charged us $200 an hour (an hour is all you need). He'll play when your guest arrive, after the ceremony thru beginning of the cocktail hour.
              It was so romantic. ALL our guest was in aaawww... Aidan was amazing. It was worth it!!

              Dreams Entertaiment price list are pretty pricey. (TRIOS Band $450 an hour, Guitarist $325 or $350, Harpist & Guitarist $375... etc.)

              Hope this helps

              P.S. Below is Aidan picture
