We have made thousands of South Asian weddings fun and elegant over the past 25 years.
Editor’s Note: for this Best Wedding DJs in Dallas Spotlight, we had the pleasure of interviewing Riz, from DJ Riz Entertainment.
Where have you been featured?
Both domestic and international. The Knot, WeddingWire, Maharani Weddings, South Asian Brides, and Weddingsutra.
Why do couples love working with you?
We like to make weddings unique. Most DJs want free reign on what they play. We want to get to know our couples and understand the vibe and sound they are looking for. Its very time consuming on our part, but totally worth it for the end result. We can do 5 receptions on a Saturday and they will all be a lot of fun but have each couples style written all over it.
What do you love most about being a wedding DJ?
We love making people happy and seeing them celebrate. This starts from the moment the doors open. We start watching how people react to music. By the time dinner has started, we know what they like and what’s going to make them get on the dance floor. It’s fun for us to understand who is going to dance and what’s going to make them go crazy on the dance floor.
How did you get started?
I am a fourth generation drummer so music has always been in my blood. I first saw a DJ perform and told myself I wanted to do that. I started assisting a professional DJ and learned all the basics. Then I started practicing and doing events on my own. 25 years later, we are a big company with 12 DJs, professional lighting, projectors, screens, etc.
What 3 words best describe your DJ’ing style?
Experienced, smooth, and crowd-focused.
What’s your setup like?
Our setup is clean and our equipment is industry standard. Pioneer DJ equipment, Shure Microphones, QSC speakers, and Chauvet Lighting
What budget range do you cater to?
We are luxury wedding DJs. Good entertainment isn’t cheap and cheap entertainment isn’t good.
What is one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you play it?
This changes every year.
I chose DJ Riz Entertainment as my wedding DJ without even talking to any other DJs. I can’t explain how great they were at responding to all of my emails and getting everything perfect to each detail. He confirmed all the music lists and even stayed patient with my many many changes up until the last week before the wedding. DJ Riz was amazing! He kept the crowd pumped up, never a silent awkward moment! He even created snapchat filters for each event. He was fun yet professional. Without a doubt I would recommend anyone who is wedding planning to look no further, DJ Riz Entertainment will amaze you.
Working with Riz was such a fantastic experience! Not only does he offer amazing DJ services, but he also provided our uplighting and equipment (projectors, mics, you name it) the day of the wedding. He worked with us throughout the year and offered helpful feedback on our music selections, decor, and even layout. I also appreciated how timely he was in his communications. When the dance floor opened up, everyone was dancing and it went on for hours! Thank you, Riz for making our wedding so memorable!!
From Day 1, DJ Riz was quick to respond, professional and truly cared. I booked him 10 months in advance, without meeting him/his team, and only hearing great things from other brides, through family friends, and reviews. We had multiple events in Mexico for our destination wedding last week and the dancefloor was packed every event, including our pool party. Everyone knew all the music, it catered to mostly all the guests, and everyone had an amazing time! I would get compliments every night with my guests saying “DJ Riz killed it!”
He’s been in the business a long time and really knows how to engage the crowd effortlessly. There was never a dull moment at any of my events; he took the time to understand our music choices, but also made sure each event was hyped throughout to make it all memorable. My husband and I literally danced for an hour and a half on the first night and had the best time because he knew exactly what to play.
Hiring DJ Riz was the best decision for our wedding, he exceeded all of our expectations, played the best music, and I don’t think anyone else could’ve transitioned each moment between ceremonies as flawlessly as he could. Thank you for everything!!
Love, Salima and Awaiz
