Isaac is hands down the best DJ imaginable for more reasons than I can name here (but I'll try!). We got the pleasure of experiencing Isaac play for our friends getting married several years ago and had the time of our lives (I think we even closed the wedding down with Isaac). The music he played was spot on, dance floor was always packed and we noticed he had a good pulse on the type of music the crowd wanted to hear. As guests attending a wedding, it was great experiencing his full energy. We then surprisingly got the chance to see Isaac a second time at our other friends wedding and Isaac yet again nailed it. Everyone was having the time of their life, bride and groom were dancing all night and I definitely ended up on the DJ booth dancing right alongside Isaac haha! In addition, Isaac incorporated some polish music traditions during this wedding that really brougt in the bride's family it was beautiful When it was our turn to get married, we knew Isaac was our guy. We've been to so many wedding over the last 10 years and I cannot stress enough that Isaac is a true stand out. We unfortunately needed to postpone our wedding due to covid and Isaac was so kind, generous and and willing to work with us on new dates and we knew we needed to find a new day that would work for his scheduled or our wedding wouldn't be what we were hoping for. Luckily it all worked out and this past weekend we truly had the wedding of our dreams. Isaac made the trip out to Healdsburg, brought his AMAZING set up and nailed the event. In addition, we asked Isaac to help throw an Hora Loca, a south American tradition where for a late hour in the night, the music played was up beat and wigs and glow sticks were passed out. On top of it all, Isaac allowed my cousin, a guest at the wedding, to play a couple jams (he is a DJ in Barcelona and Ibiza) and it was such a special moment to hear my cousin DJ live for the first time ever. It was a moment my family will never forget and so kind that Isaac would allow for that. Isaac - you're the best DJ and you were instrumental to the success of our wedding day. I hope to have the pleasure of crossing paths again sometime in the future. Anyone would be lucky to have you DJ their special day <3
Milton with Music in Tahoe made our dream day a reality! Music and dancing was one of the most important aspects of our wedding and Milton knocked it out of the park. Not only is he a talented a musician who played all our favorites acoustically during our ceremony and cocktail hour, he is also an incredible DJ who created n epic hype on the dance floor that didn't stop until our curfew hit. Everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever been too, especially because of the dance floor. We could have kept going all night with Milton putting out constant bangers that all our guests connected with. Can't recommend Music in Tahoe enough for their customer service from day 1 and their amazing talent!
My husband and I had the dream team for our wedding and Music in Tahoe had to be there. Milton and Isaac were amazing! Isaac’s personality and attention to detail as well as his artistic vision made our dream a reality on our wedding day!. We requested something they’ve never done before; we wanted bilingual emceeing so Isaac handled the English and Milton the Spanish ! They were a magnificent tag team!! Our guests loved it and were very impressed with them. Our cocktail hour was amazing !!!!! Chris's violin and Milton’s acoustic guitar were a huge hit! Everybody had something to say about how incredible they were! The minute the lights went down they got everybody on the dance floor and kept the party going all night long ! They also put together a mix of Latin songs that I picked for my father/daughter dance! Thank you guys so much, you are rock stars!! What an amazing job!
Milton with Music in Tahoe was great! He coordinated with us to help choose our music before our wedding and the overall sound of the entire night was beyond perfection. Music in Tahoe's set up sounded awesome. Anytime we would look over to Milton, he was smiling and had the best energy. He made our wedding so awesome, thank you Milton!
Isaac & Lucas first caught our attention at a wedding we attended last summer and we immediately knew we had to have them play at our wedding. I truly cannot imagine our wedding day without them - they brought the party and kept the dance floor full the entire night. They played acoustically for our ceremony and cocktail hour, which was so beautiful and brought tears to everyone's eyes. For the reception, they remixed our favorite songs into the most fun, dance-worthy playlist imaginable. They were incredibly professional, timely, and all-around excellent to work with. Our wedding would have been so different with any other DJ - we are so thrilled that they were available for us and truly made our wedding day the best day of our lives. We cannot thank them enough for the energy they brought to our special day. Hire them - you will not regret it!!
Milton was beyond our expectations! He has such a vibrant vibe and he shows that through his music. Everything from the live music to the dj’ing was great and kept the mood where it needed to be! I’m so glad we went with Music in Tahoe!
For our wedding we consulted Music in Tahoe and they recommended Milton Merlos to be both a live musician, and our DJ - and he absolutely exceeded all expectations. He was an absolute professional before, the big day, holding consults with us a few times before the wedding to gauge our musical style, go over the run-of-show and how we wanted the reception, etc. He arrived early to ensure he understood the layout of the venue and what equipment he needed, and I heard nothing but compliments from all our guests on how tremendously talented he is as a musician. Once the dancing kicked off - the dance floor wasn't empty the rest of evening, he truly knows how to get people out of their seats! If you are looking for live music and a dj, I can't recommend Milton and Music in Tahoe enough!!!! Thank you for helping make our special day absolutely perfect.
Isaac and his team at Music In Tahoe literally - and I don't say this lightly - turned our wedding into the best party of my life. The entire night both family and friends, all generations, were singing his praises and unable to leave the dance floor. One buddy, a veteran partier (you know the type), said "Lots of people have celebrations. Not many people can throw a party. And THIS is a party." Isaac provided flawless audio service for the ceremony and a carefully crafted cocktail aural experience. His talent, passion and energy really began to shine, though, once the dancefloor was opened up. He took our playlist suggestions and ran with it, playing timeless classics, obscure remixes that impressed the music heads, and the funky beats that gets everyone moving. Through it all he was professional, passionate and just stoked to be able to party with us and have fun. Thank you Isaac and MIT, from the bottom of our hearts!!!
We absolutely loved Music in Tahoe at our wedding (at West Shore Cafe in Homewood, CA). We had Isaac as our DJ/Emcee and Chris as our piano player (during our ceremony and cocktail hour), and they both were wonderful. Everything exceeded our expectations, and the wedding was so much fun! First, Isaac was super responsive and easy to communicate with before and after we contracted with them. He listed to all our requests and made sure all the bases were covered. The night moved so smoothly and everyone raved about dance playlist - most said it was one of the best weddings they’ve been to. Such a fun party. Chris was able to make a few custom arrangements for us for the processional and walk down the aisle which were perfect (and given we picked the songs pretty early in the process, they were able to get us some samples before the wedding). The cocktail setlist set a great atmosphere. Also, Isaac made sure to check in with us through the night to make sure everything was going smoothly and we were having a good time. Overall, I would highly recommend Music in Tahoe - if I could give more than 10/10 I would.
We had Milton from Music at Tahoe, DJ our wedding. He absolutely knocked it out of the park. We had several calls with him leading up to the wedding and he was alway very easy to work with and very kind. He was happy to make sample cuts for a few of the wedding dances and had them ready in a short turn around. Milton also plays the Spanish guitar. We had him play at the cocktail hour and let me tell you, it was simply fantastic. ‘Dance Monkey’ to ‘Bombeleo’, he can play it all and was a huge hit with all of our family and friends. Milton knocked all of the dance music out of the park. He had the whole party dancing until the last song. I highly recommend Music at Tahoe and especially Milton. If I could give 6 stars, I would!
We, like many other couples, experienced the absolute tumultuous wedding-planning-during-the-era-of-COVID situation and let me tell you, it wasn’t fun nor easy. What was fun AND easy was working with Music in Tahoe and Isaac specifically. We went through 4 different wedding plans, 3 venues across 2 different states before we finally had our big day. Isaac was so accommodating and flexible- we kept him in the loop via email about all of our changes and he never once said that he couldn’t make it work! He was the easiest of all of our vendors to work with and he brought the party!! When we made the final change to downsize our wedding and have it in our back yard Isaac drove (over state lines, mind you) to come and see the house and work with us on where the best set up would be for acoustics during ceremony, cocktail hour and the reception! Talk about A+ service!! The night of our wedding was an absolute blast! He arranged (killer) playlists for pre-ceremony and dinner; mixed, cut and edited songs for our ceremony; sang and played live during our cocktail hour; and DJ’d the best dance party!! He was set up in 3 different spaces, had all the mic’s/speakers for each area and set up mood lighting in the backyard for nighttime dancing. Friends and family keep asking me where we found Isaac and for the playlists he used and everyone is still talking about our dance party! Not only is Isaac an incredible musician but a great emcee and DJ. He reads the room and adjusts the music type/style appropriately to keep the party going! I hated almost every second of wedding planning but Isaac and Music in Tahoe were wonderful to work with and I would re-book them and/or recommend them in a heartbeat! Thank you Isaac, our wedding was incredible and you brought the best backyard dance party!
Peter, Lucas, Karl, and Isaac truly are the dream team. They curated a beautiful mix of music for our wedding that truly reflected who we are as a couple. They effectively captured our vision and made our musical dreams a reality on our special day. The incorporation of live sax, flute, and guitar, provided a beautiful atmosphere to our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Our guests were thoroughly impressed as we danced the night away. Thank you Music in Tahoe!
We had Sam Ravena as our wedding Dj and WOW we couldn’t have asked for a better DJ. He played beautiful acoustic guitar for the ceremony and cocktail hour then had the dance floor packed the entire reception. We gave him a list of about 15 songs we wanted played during the reception and every song in between those matched the vibe perfectly and got people up and dancing. He was incredible. He was very professional and easy to work with for the entire process. We highly recommend and would absolutely hire Sam and Music in Tahoe again!
As the daughter of a DJ, I set the bar high when I envisioned what the entertainment would be like at my wedding, and I am excited to say that Rusty + Isaac exceeded all of these expectations. They were incredible from the get go, and even toured our venue as we had a complicated set up that required 3 different sound systems, and they handled the challenge with ease! Plus, they work with an insanely talented live duo The Bayberry Cast (Lucas + Darcy) who set the tone during cocktail hour and sang everything from Ed Sheeran to Alice in Chains (not kidding, my Husband's request).
Fast and thorough communication? Check! Helpful planning tools to ensure your wedding is organized, with no detail overlooked? YUP. The absolute raddest DJs that will have you dancing all night and all your guests talking about how it was the greatest dance party they've ever had? Absolutely! I have been planning weddings for over ten years, so I knew exactly what I wanted for our special day, and Rusty + Isaac truly blew me away. They were the easiest to work with, accommodated all of our special requests, assisted us in figuring out the best sound for our outdoor ceremony and kept the dance floor packed from first dance to last call. Our wedding will go down as the best party I've ever been to thanks to these guys, and that is not said lightly. My dad even made mention at how great their sound systems were, which made speeches crystal clear for all to hear. And once the dance floor got poppin', it did not stop! I have had friends and family say it was the greatest dance party they had ever been to, and I know it definitely was from my new husband and I! If you want to show up, look pretty and have the best night of your life, well then ladies.... you have found your DJs!
Sam was the absolute best! Even in the middle of a pandemic, he set up more than 6 feet away for our small wedding and wore a mask and brought the energy. We gave him some guidance on songs, but he knew exactly the vibe we were going for. He got everyone on the dance floor and was the perfect addition to our wedding. Highly recommend!!
Milton helped create the best day of my life! We had the most incredible experience. All the ambiance and flow of everything was perfect. People were saying they wanted to fly Milton to their next destination wedding (and that it was the best wedding they’ve ever attended). Every song choice and ability to be flexible with all the requests, was perfect. Milton you were wonderful. Thank you for your calming presence and attention to detail. Can’t thank you enough! ☺️
We cannot say better things about Milton from Music in Tahoe. He was an amazing DJ. Professional, punctual, fun, and just so genuine! He made everyone feel so comfortable and rocked the house for all our guests. If I could give him 10 out of 5 stars we would and his guitar playing skills were out of this world! Please if you are looking for DJ services look no further than Music in Tahoe. You will not be disappointed.
Isaac and his team were excellent at communicating and led us to feel confident in selecting them for the big day - they were also very accommodating when we were forced to postpone due to the pandemic. We had Lucas playing acoustic guitar for us before the ceremony while guests were getting situated, and again during our cocktail hour and he did fabulous. I was also extremely impressed with our DJ/MC Milton who kept the event flow rolling for us. He put together a great mix with some of our favorite songs and helped create a memorable evening for us and our guests! I would highly recommend to anyone :)
Isaac was one of the best decisions we made for our big day! He collaborated with us prior about what we like (which is quite the mixed bag!) and the vibe we were going for, from just a quick chat he absolutely nailed it! His utter expertise in music and his ability to mix genres/tempos to fit the various stages of the day into night exceeded our hopes! The lighting he designed against the trees looked incredible (not cheesy!) and even changed to fit the music, he had everyone on the dance floor! Our guests are still talking about what a kick ass party we threw, we have Isaac of Music In Tahoe to thank! If you’re on the fence about who to hire for your wedding just get on the phone with Isaac, you’ll know right away he’s the one to pick!
Isaac was, simply put, phenomenal. We had a very nice venue in Tahoe, but the piece of the wedding that got the most compliments was Isaac as a DJ - people literally went up to him afterwards to tell him how amazing of a job he did. He had the dance floor crowded all night, and his enthusiasm was contagious - it’s wonderful to see someone who truly loves what he is doing getting so into the music and the singing. We realized at the end of the night that we had forgotten to walk around to tables to say hi to people, since once the dancing started, it never stopped. (For context, our friends in attendance were mid to late 30s, but almost everyone - from our friends to our parents and their friends - kept coming onto the dance floor.) In terms of process, Isaac was the best of the three intro calls we did with DJs - he was warm, explained his philosophy, and helped us understand the process. We also submitted a song list to him to guide him, and while he didn’t play all of it (impossible, since it was so long) and he added some songs off list, the spirit of what he played hewed exactly to what we wanted. He was also very easy to work with for the ceremony, partnering with our friend who played the piano for the ceremony itself. You may pay a little bit more for Music in Tahoe, but it is 100% worth it.
We hired Milton to play guitar for our elopement ceremony in Tahoe, and he was amazing! I saw him on wedding wire, and he was also highly recommended by our officiant. Milton was very friendly, professional, and easy to work with. He was very prompt with response times and suggestions for music. On the ceremony day, Milton made everything run so smoothly, I didn’t have to worry about a thing! He is clearly very experienced with events and productions and knows about timing, where to set up, and how to go with the flow of the event. Everyone commented on how great the music was. He played classical guitar music while the ceremony was being set up and it really put everyone at ease. His is extremely talented, plays beautiful music, and made the experience so easy! I’m so happy we worked with him. We are already talking about hiring him again if we have an event up here!
Fellow Brides! If you are anything like me, picking a DJ is one of the MOST important aspects of your wedding. The hunt for an amazing DJ who understands your needs, hears your vision, supports your wedding flow and most importantly is genuinely amazing and NON cheesy is over! Music in Tahoe was amazing. We met with Isaac almost a year out from our wedding, and knew right away he was a great fit. His genuine nature and ability to listen to your wedding vision with music was so reassuring. It was almost too straightforward and easy working with Music in Tahoe. We put together our list of songs for our ceremony and reception, and the rest Issac handled. Smooth sailing, AND our reception was beyond one of the best dance parties of our lives. Banger after banger was mashed up, and our friends and family were truly still talking about how fun the dance floor was the next day. Our wedding coordinator actually asked who we worked with as well, she was super impressed. In summary, Music in Tahoe was amazing. I'v had nightmares my entire life of having a cheesy DJ control my wedding (we have all seen "The Wedding Singer." So. much. fun. Hopefully Isaac is around for our next renewal of our vows because that was a FUN time!
Isaac is the ABSOLUTE BEST DJ! He MADE our whole wedding night with a 4-hour nonstop late-night dance party. It was incredible and all of our friends agreed—it was the best dance party (and wedding) they had ever witnessed. Some even went so far as to say they never needed to go to another wedding again, it was so fun!
I have a few bride-to-be friends who were debating the band vs. DJ question and Isaac completely sold them! He helped them see how fun a dance party can be when you have the right music, the right energy, and some seriously special spinning skills. But, in all seriousness, Isaac has SKILLS. Quite a few guests commented on his many musical "personalities": he ran our ceremony sound super smoothly and professionally, he played an acoustic bluegrass set for our cocktail hour, and then he turned into the most incredible hype man/DJ for our dance party. He listened to our musical preferences (soul, 90s hip hop) and executed better than we ever could've imagined. I think what makes him so special as a DJ is just that he knows music and how to put music together so well. He's a trained musician, which must help him match the beats and spin together the most epic mixes. He will even go so far as to learn a few new songs to play for your guests at cocktail hour!
Music was incredibly important to us and the main priority for our wedding - we wanted to make sure people danced but, more importantly, that our DJ understood our vibe and could make our wedding uniquely ours. Isaac BLEW US AWAY. Not only did he vibe on all the soul/oldies/funk that we loved, he knew all the new stuff we loved as well Tuxedo/Lizzo, etc. He is truly a musical magician and perfectly curated every aspect of our wedding - from the pre-ceremony to cocktail hour to easing everyone onto the dance floor to playing the spot on songs in the midst of the full blown dance party - he always read the room and knew what would work best. All of our friends and family commented on our music and even asked for his information because they could not believe where we found this “wedding DJ”. Isaac was beyond a wedding DJ - our guests felt like they were at a full blown show dancing the night away to an amazing DJ set. If music is a priority to you (and it should be, it really sets the tone and vibe!) then, Music in Tahoe is a must. The dance floor was packed the whole night and we are so grateful for choosing Isaac and Music in Tahoe!
