emcee & dj
"I have been active in the event industry for over 10 years and it's safe to say that I have not encountered an emcee and DJ with such class as I do when David Newton is behind the mic. Mr Newton is the perfect addition to an event because he embodies all the qualities of an emcee: class, professionalism and experience, all with an incredibly charming accent. He has the remarkable ability to engage with the entire audience, yet still connect with the individuals simultaneously. He has that rare ability of captivating any audience's attention and holding it with his charismatic personality. I confidently recommend him to my clients." - Hylah White (Event Planner Of The Year 2016 nominee)
"I've worked in the event industry since 2011 and strongly recommend David Newton. His professionalism is top notch and his ability to engage a crowd and host events is second to none... I always feel secure in knowing he has everything handled."
"He definitely exceeded all of our expectations... he felt more like a friend than someone that we had hired and he made sure to understand our personalities and exactly how we wanted our night to go. He always put us first and was a huge hit the night of the event. We are so thankful we found David and had him be our DJ & emcee."
"For whatever your needs, David Newton is your man. The Babe Ruth of your Bar Mitzvah? The Elvis of your event? The Morgan Freeman of your marriage? He'll be any of those things and more."
'OH MY GOSH. THIS GUY. HIRE HIM. HIRE HIM NOW.
Hiring a DJ/Emcee was pretty much the last thing on our list. Our venue gave us a list of DJs they prefer we use. We were recommended several DJs, David being one.
Quite honestly, when I watched his short video sharing himself on their website, I immediately fell in love with his accent! I told my fiance we HAD to have him! David also said how he can tell you all about the music he loves, but it's not about him at YOUR event - it's about YOU and YOUR favorite song! Which, you know, isn't common for emcees to say... Sadly enough.
We secured David, but since we are located in San Diego and he is in LA, we had to Facetime to get our wedding in order. No problem at all! He had sent some questioniarres about what we want our day to be like - music we chose, ceremony and reception, etc etc. It was a little overwhelming but I think that was just because we didn't know what we wanted for so many things!
When we spoke with him, he was entirely calm, collected, excited for us and our day, very reassuring of what we didn't know - because he DOES know! AND to top it all off! He was drinking iced coffee out of a mason jar while we spoke! (These are crucial details to me! It means he fits with us, we mesh!) We felt terrible as he had a rough week and had an extremely busy week ahead (our wedding was in 6 days from speaking with him), but he remained optimistic and excited and didn't let anything hinder his enthusiasm and focus.
Mind you, I was emailing/texting this poor guy the morning of our wedding (which was May 28th of 2017 - little behind with the review - sorry David!) with some song choices because I couldn't make decisions! Making small adjustments on our timeline because we had a little change, etc.. He rolled with everythinggggg. Seriously he's a PRO! Of all the vendors, I think David was my favorite to work with! He was SO fun! So funny! Professional, yet brought everyone together in a casual way. SO easy to work with - incredibly flexible. He will be as involved or as uninvolved as you want him! We want to get married all over again just to have David again! (And so he can dress more casually, since I forgot to relay this was a country/casual wedding - jeans ok!) We received tons of compliments on him, followed with "Where did you find this guy?? He's amazing!"
If you have any concerns about a DJ/emcee, put them to rest. He will take care of your event. He will make sure your day is focused on you and how you want it. He is incredible easy to speak to and very pleasant to work with! David is your guy! He's our guy for life!'

You know that one place that everybody fears: standing up in front of a group of people, in the spotlight, holding a microphone in their sweaty palm looking into the face of an awaiting audience? Public speaking! Well that scary place is the one place I feel most comfortable.
For more than 20 years I have been there. Up front, public speaking. And in doing so I have earned the trust of countless event coordinators, brides & grooms and many of the biggest names in business by confidently carrying their big event day successfully.
Whether I am being hired as the Master Of Ceremonies at a glitzy gala event in sunny California or helping raise thousands of dollars at fundraisers as the auctioneer all over the United States or taking on the all important role as wedding DJ and emcee on the biggest day of a couple's life and making sure every guest leaves saying that was the best wedding they have ever been to... I make sure to do it with the level of professionalism and care that I would if it were my own event. Besides all of that, a little charm and a South African accent goes a long way too.
Let's be honest, if NFL football players, celebrity Wedding Planner David Tutera, bridezillas, Coca Cola, Sketchers, Macy's, Trump National, Wedding Wire, The Breeders Cup, Shock Media, Procter & Gamble, Kubota Corporation, 44 Blue Productions, USC, UCLA, Lunada Bay Elementary, Hot Topic, Air New Zealand and many others have trusted me with their event... you can too.
