My husband is European-American while I am Persian-American. We had a bunch of people of all different cultures and ages at our wedding. I was very concerned about finding a DJ that would keep everyone moving and having a good time. DJ Dariush was perfect! He was very professional in all aspects of his service. From music selection, to attire, to responsiveness to all of our questions and concerns. We were an out of town wedding (Newport, RI) his cost included all his travel expenses. This also meant that he would come a day early to make sure there were no surprises on his way here.
Everyone had such a wonderful time at our wedding and it was awesome to see everyone (including my grandmother who NEVER dances) dancing all night long :)

We could not be happier with a DJ than DJ Dariush. We had Persian/american wedding and he played a great mix of american and Persian songs for us. Dance floor was packed with all our guests and everyone was enjoying his songs. We were so surprised to see all our guests even the elder ones were dancing all night. He created an intimate and fun experience for everyone.
What was even more impressive was that the selection of songs that we had requested for our bridal party and our entrance and first dance was played accurately as we had asked for, even to the seconds of the portion of songs we had selected. His attention to details is so great. We definitely recommend him for your wedding. You cannot go wrong with using his services.
DJ Dariush made our wedding day shine. From the ceremony to the cocktail hour, the Nowruz countdown, dance floor and the reception dinner, DJ Dariush delivered a perfect soundtrack to a beautiful day. His dance music savvy was evident with our Persian and American wedding guests on the dance floor the entire night. He knocked it out of the park!
FYI, let him pick the dance songs... just trust me on that. Our guests are still talking about the reception dance music three months later!!!

We are so happy that Dariush was able to DJ for our wedding. We got married in Michigan and he had no problem traveling from DC. Since I'm Persian and my husband is American, we were really looking for the perfect DJ to combine both Persian and American music. We wanted someone that could keep our family and friends dancing the whole night long. Dariush was so easy to work with and very professional. He was so accommodating with all of our requests whether it was organizational or regarding specific songs. I didn't want to have to create a playlist for the wedding especially because I'm not very up to date with Persian dance music anymore. But, Dariush put me totally at ease because he could sense exactly what kind of atmosphere we were looking for. He made our lives so much easier and it was one less thing we had to worry about. Literally our guests were dancing until the night ended at 1am. I highly recommended Dariush to any couple who wants a DJ that knows how to get a crowd dancing all night long!"
DJ Dariush is very professional and traveled all the way to Michigan for our wedding day. He brought the party to life and satisfied everyone who was there; Persians, Americans, and everyone in between. We highly recommend him if you're looking for an amazing experience!
Thank you so much for such a great time!!! You did an awesome job and we really appreciate it!! Everyone had a marvelous time and we heard time and time again how awesome our music was!! Thanks for making our night so memorable for us and our guests!
Dariush went above and beyond our expectations! He did an excellent job for us consistently from the first day we talked to him to the last minute of the wedding. Everyone in our wedding, from any nationality, absolutely admired him. He is a professional looking DJ who brought in his own top of the line equipment, and artistically played the musics that added a beautiful sound and scent to the moments of our weeding. He didn't let us worry for his travelling, equipment rental, or setup and tear down unlike many others in the market who were trying to get us involved in these kind of things and yet ridiculously charge for their time. Dariush has the know-how of handling a Persian wedding from the beginning to the end and he played the songs that matched the crowed in a way we and everyone had great times dancing to them. He is very easy to work with and considerate of your favorite type of music and your wedding timeline. We highly thank you Dariush for bringing the best DJ service we imagined to our wedding. keep it up..."

Thank you so much for making our wedding such a blast. I got multiple compliments on how "awesome" the DJ was and we agree! You did such a fabulous job integrating all the different types of music we wanted (Persian, Latin, pop, with a couple of oldies interspersed!) Thanks again!

Dariush deejayed our wedding and it was an incredible night! I am an American and my wife is Persian. At our wedding, half of the conversation was in Farsi and half was in English but on the dance floor, everyone was speaking the same language....fun!
Dariush did a perfect job mixing things up and he had a great feel for what people were really into, which , as it turned out, was the Persian music! Since the wedding, I have had more than a couple friends and family members ask me if I will take them out the next time I go to a party with my Iranian friends.We highly recommend him! Thank you you Dariush for making our night so special! Sincerely,
Matt and Asal O'connell

DJ Dariush was fantastic for our events! We had an Indian engagement party and and Iranian wedding and he was very accommodating to both styles! During the wedding I was worried because I didnt even get a chance to make a song list since everything was so busy but I really didnt need one! Everything he played was great! He's very professional, on time for both events and set up before we started. Im very happy with our selection and highly recommend him! Thanks Dariush!
DJ Dariush is a true experienced professional. He is punctual and takes care of you the whole night. He plays many different types of music and follows exactly what you want to play and your do not play list. I highly recommend him because he made our wedding a blast and left everyone dancing all night!
On behalf of Marzi and myself, I would like to thank you for DJ'ing our wedding and taking care everything else that was requested throughout the night. Your professionalism and responsiveness from the beginning caused us to feel great about our decision and made us to work with you in ease. We greatly appreciate for advising us prior to the wedding in making decisions for the music and how to go about the events on the night of the wedding. We are also very pleased on how everything was performed by you as they were planned and we enjoyed it all very much.
Thank you and take care! Pejman and Marzi

Dariush is everything and more we could have imagined for our wedding DJ. Not only was he completely responsible for all the equipment and sound system, he set everything up on his own without needing anything from us as a couple. It was so nice to have someone take responsibility and follow through when you are dealing with 100 other things! Dariush exceeded our expectations with regards to the music he played. All we had to do was send him a list of about 10 songs so he could get the 'vibe' of music we wanted. I even sent him youtube videos of specific songs we wanted that I didn't have personally. He got every single song we requested and guests at out wedding were so happy with him. We received tons of compliments on his music selection. We had Iranian and American music played at our wedding and he did a great job of mixing the two! I would recommend Dariush to ANYONE looking for a professional and fun DJ. He is easy to communicate with and responds to emails promptly, which as a bride, I appreciated!

Dear DJ Dariush,
Wanted to write you a quick note and personally thank you for your hard work throughout our wedding. I am so pleased and happy the way you handled everything. Your help and support throughout the planning process (i.e. helping me to find the right percussionist, spending time with me to learn about my wedding, my guests, etc.) was above and beyond our expectations. I am very happy that you played the songs that I had requested and you also mixed the Persian and non Persian songs to include our non Persian guests in the party. Thanks so much for all your hard work and professionalism. Hope to collaborate with you in the future and see you at various parties and weddings.

Dariush is professional and curteous. He listened attentively, answered our questions patiently and worked with us to ensure our wedding events were transitioned smoothly between the ceremony, speeches, dinner and cake cutting. His extensive knowledge of all types of music was impressive and he delivered on his promise to enuse our big day was great fun for all our family and guests.

Persian-American Wedding DJ Service in Maryland
We used DJ Dariush's services for our Persian-American wedding in Brooklyn, New York in May and were very happy with his selection of music and his DJ-ing for the evening. I was a little bit reluctant to use an out of town DJ but DJ Dariush assured me that he does several events in NYC and he ended up being perfect!
We had a call before the wedding to go over the event timeline and music that I wanted through out the evening. We had specific requests for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, including first dances, speeches, and a last minute bouquet toss!
DJ Dariush was on pointe with the music and everyone was dancing the whole time. He mixed in our requested songs seamlessly and transitions were very clean. We had numerous compliments on the DJ and we are very happy we decided to go with DJ Dariush. He was on time, played great music, professional, had all the equipment, and was flexible when I requested last minute changes to the plan. Thanks DJ Dairush!!

He was very professional and easy to work with. He was very keen to understand our taste during our meetings, and even helped us in the planning process by reviewing the agenda with us and making useful recommendations. during the wedding, he was very careful to stay within the tracks that were matching our taste. We requested another station in the open space for our ceremony, so he brought and set-up two different sets of stations in a blink, and made that work really great too. He also was the MC for our wedding, and he handled everything wonderfully. We highly recommend him!
Dariush was awesome; He played all of my daughter's American music requests and in between switched from Spanish music to Persian music. We all had a great time, danced all night. He is very pleasant and made it fun for our multi culture guests. It was also very easy planning with Dariush prior to the wedding. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to have a memorable and fun wedding.
I received absolute RAVES about you from my family and friends (who are tremendously picky and particular!). They thought you did an outstanding job! I was so busy during the wedding that, quite honestly, I had no idea what music was playing -- but all I know is that every time I wanted you to play something for me, it was the very next song, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate that! From our guests, I had amazing feedback about you -- I don't know if you noticed, but we had so many people dancing for so long, that at one point I thought, "We should have gotten a bigger dance floor!" In fact, if I hadn't been the bride, I don't think there would have been room for me to dance! Everyone had a terrific time because of you! MOST importantly, you were so easy to work with -- our wedding became a little disorganized (with singing and events that even I didn't expect), and you handled every scenario with professionalism and class. You went with the flow and managed to make the wedding run very smoothly. It truly was the most memorable day of my life, and I'm so appreciative of you! I felt that my event was rather stressful and at times chaotic, but I didn't feel that affected you at all. You were always calm and unobtrusive! You really took into account the mood of our guests and did an amazing job responding to THEIR responses. You are truly amazing at your job. Thank you for cooperating with our "non-traditional" requests, thank you for all your correct advice (even when we didn't -- but should have -- listened to you!), and thank you for being so terrific during our wedding. My only regret is that I didn't have a chance to thank you in person that night.!

Charlie and I wanted to thank you for your hard work at the wedding and for making our reception fun and exciting for our guests! We had a great time and I know I danced for as long as my feet would allow! I appreciate you coming in early and for putting in the time to make our reception so perfect. I know our guests had a good time too, with the great mix of music.

I would like to express my thanks and appreciation for a wonderful job done at my daughter's wedding celebration at Tremont Hotel Plaza on April.7.2012. No doubt your choice of selecting Iranian music has added to the enthusiasm and joy of our guest to participate in dancing and expressing their happiness with us.

Dariush was our DJ both for Armita & Anahita's wedding. He did a great job. He meets with you prior to the wedding and work with your choices on music & songs. He has a very nice sound system & also can bring in International music, which we very much appreciated! He reads the crowd to keep them on the dance floor!
Fetneh Schacht (Mother of the bride)
We had a fantastic time at the wedding. We already had high expectations because you performed at my sister's wedding, yet somehow you managed to exceed those higher expectations. You arrived, setup, performed, MC'd, and left without a hitch. Thanks for DJing our wedding!
Venue: Key Bridge Marriott
We were extremely pleased with how well you incorporated both Persian and American songs into our evening. The dance floor was packed the entire night, which is precisely what we had envisioned. Thank you so much for making the most important aspect of our wedding (the music) flow so well. We had SO much fun!
Bahar & Greg
Venue: The Biltmore Ballrooms
We were so happy to have chosen DJ Dariush to share in our wedding day. All the guests danced throughout the evening and had a great time particularly with the music selections from DJ Dariush. He provided music for the persian ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and we did not have to coordinate or worry about anything on the day of our wedding because he worked seemlessly and demonstrated extreme professionalism. Thank you DJ Dariush for helping make our wedding such a happy and memorable day!

Thank you again for Saturday night. We really appreciate the great work and making the evening a memorable event. people commented on your ability to keep people interested and dancing throughout the night and they all had a great time. Please feel free to use me as a reference in the future. I have nothing but positive things to say about you and your work! Thank you again!
I am Persian and my husband's family is American. My husband and I (as well as most of our friends) like indie music, and wanted that reflected in our music. However, we wanted some Persian music for the ceremony and for some of the dancing. Dariush was professional, arrived on time, set everything up without problems, and followed all of our instructions about when and how to play everything. He didn't have a bunch of the music we requested, but he was able to get it ahead of time. The music for the Persian part of the ceremony was great and appropriately timed, just the right loudness. As far as the Persian music played during the dancing portion, my mom and aunt tell me it was recent stuff! People seemed to like everything and we had dancing all night long :) The indie and Persian music flowed together great-- Dariush really takes his job seriously! When he announced the last song, everyone groaned because we were all having such a great time dancing, and the night just flew by! Would highly recommend him, especially for weddings with more than one type of music!
Suzi and Matt
Thank you so much for everything. You were absolutely wonderful. "DJ Dariush was absolutely wonderful. He was absolutely professional from the initial telephone conversation. He drove from Maryland to South Carolina for our wedding. He arrived the night prior to our wedding, and by next morning, he had set up his equipment, and everything was ready for our wedding. A week prior to our wedding, he spent a considerable amount of time and patience in order to review our itinerary and select our music. He is extremely knowledgeable about every kind of music and different marriage ceremonies. He is calm and collected, and the same time, he is fun and organized. During our Persian wedding, we had a lot of American guests, and DJ Dariush was able to introduce both Persian and American music at right times in order to keep the wedding fun and enjoyable. Overall, it was an absolutely wonderful wedding, thanks to DJ Dariush's professionalism and courtesy. Thanks, Vida & Payam." Let us know if we can help in any other way. Hopefully, we can invite you to our home for our future parties so you can DJ for us all night long.
We just wanted to tell you that you did a fantastic job for our wedding. Thank you so much. Your music selection was great. I liked every song you played and my guests even came up to me and said you were great. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family for any future events.
Fanak and Paul
DJ Dariush did a great job working with us to make sure our wedding night was perfect. He has a lot of experience and knows what he's doing, and our wedding at the National Museum of Women in the Arts couldn't have been better. We truly loved it, and much of that is due to the wonderful job DJ Dariush did. Whether it was coordinating traditional Persian music for our ceremony, managing the mic and announcing the toasts, playing tasteful music during dinnner, and then spinning the best dance music (both American and Persian), DJ Dariush did everything perfectly! About half of our guests were Persian Iranian, and the other half American, and DJ Dariush's music made everyone happy and brought everyone on to the dance floor. All we can say is, "Thank you, Dariush!"
Persian Wedding Washington DC
Our entire family was thrilled with DJ Dariush. He was focused & professional, arriving early to ensure that the wedding ceremony and reception were properly set-up. He was experienced & knowledgeable, miraculously keeping all happy, the young, the old, the Americans, the Persians, and the Spanish guests. He was precise and well-mannered, dedicated to keeping the bride & groom happy. As my father said "DJ Dariush was on top of everything!" We cannot thank him enough!

We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your work at our wedding, as well as how much we appreciate your professionalism. Our conversations with you before the wedding put us completely at ease about the reception, the quality of your work, and your ability to trade off sets with the band smoothly. Music really makes a reception, and thanks to you, guests were on the dance floor having a fabulous time the whole night. Our guests are still telling us what a great time they had, and how awesome it was to have a DJ and a band play off of one another so well—your communication and ability to read the crowd was impeccable.
Your kindness, flexibility, attention to detail, and great suggestions made working with you a pleasure. The day before the wedding, you were the only vendor we knew we did not have to worry about. Our only regret is that the night was not longer!!! We would hire you all over again without reservation, and we will undoubtedly pass on your information to anyone we know looking for a DJ.
Thank you so much for everything.
Best of Luck,
Sarah & Keyvan
DJ Dariush responds with joy and energy to the dance needs of whatever group of people you bring together. He effortlessly taps into a over a decade of experience delivering music from all corners of the world. For a mix of international and Iranian/Middle Eastern music, you simply can't find anyone better in the US.
After interviweing several DJs for my wedding, I was sure DJ Dariush was the very best. He listened carefully to our needs, brought the highest quality equipment and had us dancing for over six hours to exactly what we had requested and more. He offers a combination of elegance for the tender moments of your event and joyous energy for all the celebrating. Plus, as an honest man with a good heart, he'll make your event something easy to just slip into and enjoy.

Kataneh and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding such a success. We really appreciate everything you did and your professionalism during the whole process, we were very pleased with the outcome. We would absolutely refer you to anybody that we know that is planning a wedding or function that needs music. Thank you again for everything and we wish you continued success in the future.
Persian Wedding VA
DJ Dariush was wonderful—we never met prior to the wedding (since I live in NC) but he was very efficient over email. He was set up and on time and even offered to help us with the music for our Persian ceremony at the hotel when a prior commitment fell through. There was a perfect mix of Iranian and American music and communicated with me throughout the night to ensure that I was satisfied. At one point, a guest had asked for some music but he asked me first before playing it to make sure I was ok with the choice. To me, that went above and beyond.
In all honesty, my guests remember DJ Dariush and were very impressed by him. My husband was extremely pleased as he was worried about everyone having a good time---everyone danced and it was a true party! I also thought his pricing was extremely reasonable considering he flew in from another state. I can’t think of anything negative---which is important---because the DJ can really “make or break” the reception. We all certainly had a great time.
Meg Zomorodi RN, BSN
Thank you so much for the fantastic job you did at our wedding. It was a very hectic day for us and it was very nice not to have to worry about the music at all. You did an excellent job of playing the mixture of music that we had asked for. It can be difficult to make everyone happy at an event that has such a diverse group of people. We also appreciated very much that you prepared both the ballroom and the outdoor area so that we could move the event indoors in the event that there was bad weather. Luckily the weather cooperated and everything worked out perfectly. Again, thank you so much for everything. We could not have been happier with your DJing. I would recommend you to anyone.
Sina & Natalie
DJ Dariush is a reliable and talented professional disk jockey, with whom it is a pleasure to work. He drove from Washington DC to Michigan, to provide the music for our wedding ceremony and reception. His arrival and equipment set up was timely. He was dressed appropriately for the event. He respected and confirmed our requests, prior to the event. He balanced both Persian and Western music, according to the crowd's reaction. The bottom line is that he kept the party rocking. Even one of my Persian guests commented to me during our reception, that she thought he was a great DJ!"
Mitra & Zach
Persian American Wedding, MI
DJ Dariush helped ensure that our wedding was executed flawlessly. He was extremely professional and played an excellent mix of International, American, and Persian music. Most importantly, DJ Dariush was adept at tailoring the music to the needs of the guests at any given time. He also graciously played traditional songs for our aghd before the reception. I wholly recommend DJ Dariush for any social event.
Today is the first day i was able to get to my computer after the wedding so i am so sorry for the delay.
Everyone commented on how wonderful you were. Thank you for making the best day of our lives even better. We can't thank you enough for making our reception such a fun and exciting time.
The music selection was excellent! Every guest I've talked to told me how much they liked my DJ! Your professionalism and attention to detail did not go unnoticed!
Nadia & Mohamed
From the first song that Dariush played, all of our guest, both Persian and American, were up dancing and did not sit down until the evening was complete.
Dariush was able to blend the best music from both of our cultures, Persian and American, making our wedding reception a nonstop party.

Dear DJ Dariush,
Thank you for being so understanding and accommodating of us on our wedding night. Not only were we very happy with your service, but we had so many compliments from our guests in regards to your music selection. Thank you for keeping us all dancing until they kicked us out on our wedding night

You were an unbelievable DJ for my wedding! You were so attentive, and the music selection was wonderful! You catered to the mixed crowed just as I had hoped for. Thank you so much for making our reception such a warm and wonderful time!
Thanks Dariush for playing at our Hanna Bandun. You were a significant contributor to our tremendously warm and fun reception. You played all our favorite songs. The dance floor was always full of guests enjoying the music. We also appreciated the range of music you played ~ all our favorite jazz pieces, disco favorites, 80s flavor and the latest dance hits, with just the right flavor of international beat. Thanks again for your professionalism ~ we are big fans!
