Why LakeDJ Entertainment?

Key Points

Full-Time Professional DJ’s

Working for LakeDJ Entertainment is our full-time employment and we love it. Full-time means we are available for consultations, or to return your calls during the week, not just weekends or evenings.

Two Is Better Than One

We work together at events to maintain a seamless production. At some venues we are required to provide sound in three or four different areas, this is never a problem for our team.


Both Vicki and Derek have many years of experience in the entertainment field. From clubs to international live acts, radio studios to promotions and of course weddings.


Worth every penny and a true professional. Thanks so much Derek - we really appreciate everything you did to make our day so memorable!

He was great and if you go with him you will not be disappointed. After the wedding our friends and family all commented on what a great job he did. We were so happy with Lake DJ!

Cindy - The Knot

Every vendor I spoke to in Lake Tahoe said that Derek was the best in town. I can say without a doubt that they were all right!
