Dave performed at our daughter's wedding at Wente Brothers on 10/11/15. He performed at our other daughter's wedding 5 years earlier and we only hope to have him perform at our next in line daughter's wedding! Dave is not only a pro, he is simply dynamic. He reads the attendees and adjusts his performance to the delight of the crowd. His talent and energy are awe inspiring. If you are fortunate to have Dave at your event, you can rest sure that it will be a hit! From Sinatra to JZ...
He's simply the best!

Diamond Dave was one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding. He was extremely easy to work with and highly responsive. His years of experience allowed me, as a bride doing the wedding without a wedding coordinator, to trust Dave in helping me keep the wedding on time and fun. While the venue was unhelpful, Dave helped us, even on the wedding day, get everyone organized. He kept my wedding on time and kept the party going all night long. I come from a very conservative family that usually doesn't dance. I was curious to see how Dave would get them on the floor. He "tricked" them onto the dance floor through the cake cutting ceremony and quickly launched into a line dance in which everyone participated. The rest of the night was history with 90% of the wedding guests were dancing all night long. They loved the costume changes and the flow of music was incredible. He engaged all ages from 10 years old all the way to 80 years old. My family members called it the party of the century. My top memories of the night were because of Diamond Dave's talent as a singer, entertainer, and intuition about the audience. While I won't be getting married again, I'll be pushing my other friends to hire Dave so that we can enjoy him again. Thanks Dave for such wonderful and great time. I can't wait to hear you soon!

Diamond Dave was unforgettable. There must have been at least seven mothers of “marriage age” kids that asked me if I could get in touch with him, when they might need his services. After dinner, people just wouldn’t leave the dance floor. It’s amazing. Thank you, Dave, for what you do so well.

"Diamond" Dave Hosley did an awesome job at our wedding reception last weekend held at Oakhurst Country Club. While we are an older couple age 68 and 76, we had a diverse age range from 10 to 80's, and Dave more than satisfied everyone's music favorites. The dance floor was packed from beginning to end, and everyone made it to the dance floor and had a great time. He knows how to keep the party going. Awesome job, Dave. You are worth every single penny and we would absolutely recommend you again.

5 Years ago, my then bf and I were at Petars in Lafayette and saw this amazing DJ named Diamond Dave. We fell in love with how he not only sang every song created, but entertained the crowd and people of all ages were dancing the night away. We said that night "If we ever get married we are getting the famous Diamond Dave. Well our wedding day approached for new years eve and we hired DD! He not only entertained, but without asking he coordinated with the caterer about which tables to go to buffet, among other things. He made our day organized (which we were not at all) and everyone had a blast. He is so kind, funny, and laid back! Definitely recommend his talents for any event. Our guests were blown away that he was singing all the songs! Thanks Dave for making our day smooth, and light hearted. Happy New Year!

"Diamond Dave was the DJ at my wedding two weeks ago and he was FANTASTIC!!! All of guests were in awe as he sung lots of the songs and kept the party going the whole night. He was open to suggestions and switched it up if there wasn't a full dance floor. This was the only wedding I have been to or been apart of where the dance floor as PACKED all night! It was EXACTLY what my husband and I wanted and MORE! Thanks Dave!!!"

Dave was an absolute hit at our wedding. The music throughout the evening was exactly what we wanted and were hoping for- we were approached numerous times during our reception and told how great he was. The dance floor was always packed and guests were dancing up until the very end and asking us to extend the music- which we did! We couldn't have asked for a more successful celebration and music/entertainment is one of those most important factors one must have for a top celebratory event!

Dave was recommended to us by several friends who attended a wedding he performed at back in 2011. He was the most incredible vendor we interacted with throughout our wedding planning and on the day of, bar none. We met with Dave once to review our music vision and he absolutely nailed it on the day of, even stepping in to ensure our timeline was being followed when our wedding planner lost track of time. Dave's years of experience really show in his seamless execution, ability to put the bride and groom at ease and kickass keyboard, singing and DJ skills! He is a true professional who knows how to get the party stated and keep it going! It's been three months since our wedding and people STILL talk about Dave!

You completely exceeded our expectations for Saturday! We have never received so many compliments on anything than we received about what an amazing DJ we had at the wedding. Even my mom who is getting up there in age (who has zero interest in music) gave the highest marks on you. We both wanted to give you our biggest most sincere THANK YOU we could possible give. We had such an amazing time at the wedding & the music was beyond PERFECT! Thank you for being so fantastic!
When I read reviews on you, I thought "really, does ANYONE pay any attention to the DJ?" The answer is "no" unless he is half amazing as yourself!

Hi Diamond Dave,
I wanted to thank-you for the fantastic job you did at my daughter Lisa's wedding last Saturday. Leading up to the event (an entire year), I constantly heard about Diamond Dave - Lisa was super excited. I am pretty sure that she actually did not schedule her wedding until she made sure that you were available. I was impressed that you arrived at the venue so early and that you kept the dancing going until the very last song. I also appreciated the fact that you played the song for my parents (Melody of Love) at the end of the wedding. It was the perfect ending of a perfect day.
Thanks again for a super job!

Diamond Dave is an extremely talented performer. I have danced and listened to him perform multiple times at Petar's and when I got engaged I knew I wanted him to perform in Laguna Beach for my wedding. He was incredible to work with for my wedding on August 3 at Hotel Laguna. The guests at the wedding from Northern and Southern California danced the night away to DD and loved the whole DD experience. Diamond Dave was extremely responsive to my emails and created an amazing, fun, and lively atmosphere for the wedding. Diamond Dave was very professional and easy to work with while planning the music and song lists for the wedding. Diamond Dave went above and beyond my expectations and I would recommend him to my friends.

I’d like to give a big shout out to Diamond Dave. Dave was the DJ for our August 9th Tahoe Wedding (Incline Village). I’m not entirely sure where to start because Dave has so many things to compliment. As many of you may already know, Dave is a legend – period. We first learned of Dave soon after moving to the Bay Area (East Bay) and were blown away with his ability to appeal to all ages – our 4 year old daughter had just as much fun as we did when we first saw him live at a Memorial Day BBQ (we had kids prior to marriage for anyone lost). Once we started planning our wedding, we knew right away we needed Dave because of our awesome firsthand experience and also because everyone loves him. After a pleasant and reasonable ($) contract process we booked him for our wedding. We had very little prior wedding knowledge but he made it so easy by walking us through all that is needed. Plus, whenever we spoke you could tell Dave really cared about us. The same stress-free theme continued up-to and throughout our wedding (Dave even broke his leg two weeks prior!). As expected Dave killed it. He is a one-of-a-kind talent and sure delivered a great performance. EVERYONE was dancing the night away, even those who were skeptic at first. Dave is a rock star and will continue to be the talk of our wedding. All-in-all, my advice for anyone looking for an entertaining DJ: Book Diamond Dave – you will NOT be disappointed. Tim and Jillian

Thanks so much for making Raider Phil's 75th Surprise Birthday Party a memorable occasion for him and everyone who attended. We knew when we started planning this event that we couldn't have a party for him without securing you. When we asked him what surprised him the most when he walked in, without hesitation he said "Diamond Dave!" He has followed you all around to different venues to watch you perform but to have you do a party for him was the ultimate! So many people came up to me and said how great you were and close friends of mine came up to me and said: "if we ever get married, we are hiring Diamond Dave." Thanks for making it a great evening.
Surprise Party: July 26, 2013
I would like to thank you making our anniversary party a great time that all of our friends have cannot stop talking about. As you know, we had never seen you perform live prior to that night, and your promotional videos are very good, but they did not do justice to the level of enthusiasm and the breadth of talent that you brought to the stage. Not only were your performances and vocals spot on, from Billy Joel, to Elvis, to Michael Jackson, but your interaction with us and our guests really made the event enjoyable.
If you ever need a personal recommendation, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be very pleased to convey how you transformed our celebration into an unforgettable evening.
Diamond Dave rocks! Once again he packed Clayton's Grove Park with over 3,000 fans. This was his 6th year and, as the promoter, I can officially say he will be in our 7th year line up of Concerts in The Grove Park for 2014 in Clayton.

You were handsome in your white tuxedo jacket in keeping with the tone of the event. When we arrived at the Mansion, you were already there and ready to go with script in hand as a true professional. I appreciate your help with the program and the perfect background music during the dinner. The dance room was terrific and rocked all night (I don't think you ever took a break).

Dave – Sara and Randall are off on their honeymoon, and we are coming back to earth after such an incredible evening at the reception. Just wanted to say again what an overwhelmingly positive experience we had in working with you. You were the consummate professional on the business side – you led us through the whole process of engaging your services, planning the songs, and making payments. I really appreciated your flexibility in dealing with all the out-of-town issues involved in taking your show on the road.
Then we come to the show itself. I am sure you have heard this many times, but what you do is unique in our experience. Most people take quite a bit of time to even realize that it is you who is singing the wide variety of musical styles presented in your show. I especially enjoyed your Louis Armstrong cover. My son’s father-in-law hails from the New York area and was really pleased to hear your NY/NY cover. You do have an uncanny sense for what music to play and you have the ability to get the audience involved in a serious way. Our only regret was when the show was done!
The important people in my life have been thrilled all along that you were going to come all the way to Texas and appear at this wedding, and your performance exceeded their expectations. Many years from now, my daughter will look at the wedding video and re-live these moments. That is worth all the gold in the world to me.
We hope to see you again in 2014 as we may be coming out to your area for another family event.

I think the Diamond Dave experience can best be summed up by an entry a friend left in our guest book: "Life can now be summed up by B.D. and A.D. Before Dave and After Dave." Hiring Dave for our wedding was probably the best decision we made. He is so good at getting a crowd going and ensuring everyone, young or old, has an amazing time. We had so many guests asking about him, with some even wanting to hire him for their next events too! Beyond his obvious talents and wonderful stage persona, Dave is really just a super nice guy who was a breeze to work with. Hire him. You won't regret it!

The magic of Diamond Dave must be experienced first-hand to be understood. It's like going into outer space - if you haven't been there, you just won't get it.
I can say now that I've been to the moon and back, and the moon calls himself Dave.
Words fail to adequately describe the level of awesome he brings to a party, but I'll try: Imagine if Frank Sinatra and Usher had a baby.
Oh yeah, he's that smooth.
He sings, he raps, there's a light show and an assortment of hats involved, and I'm pretty sure he's the reason the sun rises the next morning.
How hard does he bring the party? Remember that scene in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark where they look into the ark and it melts their faces? Diamond Dave calls that a slow night.
Although my bride is extremely beautiful, there were several times during the night that I found myself wistfully looking at Dave and wishing I'd married him instead. I was not the only straight man that night that felt that way.
Having a wedding? Without Dave, a wedding is just a boring church service followed by bad dancing, awkward speeches, and a lukewarm buffet.
Add a splash of Dave to your reception, and you now have an Event that people are actually excited to be at and will enjoy for years to come.
You simply must hire him.
Remember: Once you go Dave, you never go back. (That's an actual saying now.)"

Reception at Wine and Roses in Lodi, CA
Diamond Dave was the DJ at our wedding on September 8, 2012. Let me start by saying this: we already knew how great Diamond Dave was after seeing him at Petar’s and a few other places. In fact, we changed the date we were planning on having our wedding to accommodate a weekend he wasn’t booked. It was SO worth it. My vision of our wedding was to have everyone up and dancing. Diamond Dave made sure that happened.
His setup is amazing. It rides a perfect line between club atmospheres and appropriate for Grandma to dance to. He has all the professional lights and the sound quality is amazing.
Then there’s Diamond Dave himself. Everyone was so impressed that it was actually him singing. No one believed it at first. This is especially true since he can do everything from Frank Sinatra to Baby Got Back. Everyone loved all of his costumes; we even had some of our guests and our photographer wearing them as well. Our caterers and wait staff were even taking pictures and videos of Diamond Dave (and you know they see a lot of DJs).
We could not have asked for a better DJ and had the time of our lives at our wedding. I think we can sum it up by saying we were the last ones to leave the dance floor, and that was only because we had to be out of our reception venue.

We hired Diamond Dave for our wedding October 6th out in Livermore. From the very beginning, Dave helped me make our wedding our own, not just another DJ'd wedding. We had a lot of requests for random songs and he fulfilled every single one of them. He also had requests going during the wedding which our guests LOVED - it really got them involved in the dancing portion of the night.
TONS of my guests asked how I knew Dave, where we found him and how they could hire him! They were amazed at how many genres of music he knew and played. Everyone loved the show! I'm lucky enough to have known Dave since college and know how awesome he is, but tons of people said he was the best DJ they've ever seen at a wedding!
Thank you to Dave for making our wedding unique and a great party that guests of all ages could be involved in!!

"Thank you Diamond Dave for being the highlight of our wedding! Your lively entertainment, upbeat personality and professionalism was more than we expected. Our guests could not stop talking about how fabulous you were and weeks later we are still getting calls about you! Never did I expect to see everyone from my 4 year old cousins to my 82 year old Aunt dancing for hours at the wedding! Dave, you have an amazing ability to inspire people of all ages to get on the dance floor and party! Thank you for making our day so memorable."

Thank you SO much for being our DJ at our wedding on Sept 15th. You were amazing and really got the party rocking. Even my 85 year old grandpa was hitting the dance floor... a rare sight! Everybody had such a great time, especially Gary and I. Thank you for everything!

Thanks to you our wedding is going to be something people talk about for years to come. It was pretty much the most amazing day of our lives. We couldn't have asked for a better MC and entertainer. You were professional, extremely detailed, and you kept the flow of our event going smoothly. People assumed you were just a regular DJ up until you started performing your Diamond Dave rendition of Party Rock Anthem. People's minds were BLOWN! Our dance floor was bursting at the seams because every guest was up dancing. If people wanted to talk to us they'd had to find us on the dance floor because we weren't leaving! The saddest part of the night was when the music had to end. We wished we could keep the party going on forever. It was very special having you be a part of our day because we saw you perform at Petars on our 2nd date. Booking our wedding around your schedule was the best decision we ever made. Thanks again for bringing our wedding to the next level. Now we've gotta find a reason to hire you for something else!

I just wanted to let you know that you did an exceptional job for my daughter's wedding on September 2, 2012. Everyone in attendance was amazed at your performance. In addition you did a superb job directing the wedding party and introduction of those in attendance. I have always been impressed with your abiltiy to bridge the generation gap in song choices and your unique presentation. Quite frankly, you're the best!
What is an amazing job you did at Cody's and my wedding !! We have received nothing but great compliments !!! People have said you are the best thing they have ever seen. I can't thank you enough!!

"From the moment I got engaged, the only thing I was sure about is that I wanted Diamond Dave to be our DJ. Before I finalized our wedding date, I had to make sure Dave was available. He surpassed every expectation we had, and everyone was asking about where we found him (check out Petar’s if you haven’t been). Diamond Dave got EVERYONE on the dance floor. My husband and I went to go visit other tables after dinner, but we could barely find anyone at their seats to talk to. Dave helped make our wedding the most special and memorable day of our lives! Thank you!"

"Diamond Dave performed at our wedding this past Saturday, and he was absolutely fantastic in all regards!!!!
In terms of just pure entertainment at a wedding, he seriously brings it. Your friends, especially those who have never heard of Dave before, will absolutely go nuts. He's so much fun, and everyone finds something to like. My frat-tastic friends loved him and my wife's grandmother told me last night how much fun he was.
Dave, thanks for being such a professional to deal with leading up to the wedding. Katy Hanson and I really appreciate it. You helped so much in making our wedding reception fantastic. I can't thank you enough."

Reception at the City Club in San Francisco, CA
Diamond Dave is sort of like a unicorn. He is a legend among Saint Mary's College of California alumni and Petar's regulars, and when you finally get a chance to see him in action, all you can do is marvel at his talent and pay tribute to his special place in the world of entertainers. We were fortunate enough to secure this mystical one-man-show for our wedding on June 30 in Castro Valley. We had high expectations, as we had been in awe of his unique talent for years, and he exceeded every one of them - from his responsiveness throughout the planning process, to his willingness to accompany the Father of the Bride and Best Men during their surprise songs, to his unparalleled musical stylings, to his commitment to creating a fun dance floor experience where guests could let loose and don a mullet wig. Our guests cannot stop raving about Diamond Dave, and we could not be happier that the stars aligned for us to have this unicorn for our very special wedding day!

Thanks again for playing our wedding, you really made our day! I was thinking that I have been going to Petar's for so many years, I have gone to see you perform on my birthday countless times. When Suzie and I got engaged, the first thing I said after she said,"yes!" is I have to find out when Diamond Dave is available!
We had so many people come up to us during the wedding, stating "Diamond Dave is amazing! This is the best wedding reception I can remember!" It was great to hear. I also want to thank you for how quickly you were in responding to our requests and inquiries. For anyone that wants a truly memorable wedding, having you there is a must!

"Diamond Dave is arguably the best entertainer available in the Bay Area. He brought more energy and charisma to our wedding than I could have ever imagined. I had seen him a few times prior at Petar's and really liked what he brought to the table, but what he brought to my wedding was unparalleled. Dave has an uncanny ability to get people out of their chair with their hands in the air. The dance floor at my wedding didn't even hit a lull, let alone die down for any amount of time. He absolutely killed it. Forever a fan of Diamond Dave!!!"

I just wanted to personally thank you for making my daughter and son-in-law's wedding such a fun and fabulous event this past Saturday at Hannah Nicole Winery. Did you know that there were several guests there that were actually counting down the hours from Friday night's rehearsal dinner until they could see and hear you? It is clear why you are such a rock-star to so many people. You are so good at making sure all age groups had a lot of fun - it couldn't have been more perfect. When my husband and I have a chance, we'll definitely be coming to Lafayette to hear you when we can. We are fans for life.
All the best to you and thank you so much again!

My wife and I had Dave perform for our wedding reception at the Lake Merritt Hotel and the best way to describe our experience was, Wow! We had him sing The Way You Look by Frank Sintra for our first dance and his voice was amazing. I can't believe how talented he is since he was able to sing all kinds of songs by Frank Sinatra, Tupac, Lady Gaga and even LMFAO.
Do you want your guests to have the time of their lives?
Do you want everyone to remember your wedding and continue to talk about it?
Don't waste your time with any other entertainer. Contact him now and book him as soon as you can before someone else reserves him on your wedding date. Your guests will never forget the memorable experience.

Diamond Dave - Thank you. Thank you. You made my daughter's recent wedding the best ever, as you did at my son's wedding a few years back. Your performance had everyone from 2 to 92 continuously rocking on the dance floor for hours. Simply stated, I have never in my life seen so many folks having so much such fun at a wedding. At least a half dozen people came up to me afterward and asked me where we "found" you. I, of course, proudly replied: "The world famous Petar's in Lafayette, California." No doubt about it Dave - you are the absolute best. So thanks again.
Sincerely, John Siamas (Orinda, California)
Dave, you were the catalyst that took our wedding reception to the next level. Thanks for doing an amazing job on Saturday and getting everyone to jam out. You blew everyone's mind. The feedback on your performance was overwhelming. Keep it up!

We made sure Dave was available before picking our wedding date, and it was one of the best decisions we made. Everyone is still talking about how awesome the music was. Dave also handled the sound for the ceremony, and it gave me peace of mind to know he was taking care of everything. One extra-special touch: When we met before the wedding, I gave Dave a playlist of the type of music I wanted to hear during dinner, just as an example. I was absolutely delighted to hear those exact songs playing at the wedding. Dave was more than just a DJ or performer; he really helped set the tone for our big day, and he worked with us to make it exactly what we wanted.

Diamond Dave, we could talk for hours about how fun our wedding was thanks to your vocal and piano stylin's. Throughout the entire reception we had guests asking, "Where did you find this guy?" For our outdoor afternoon wedding, we knew it was going to be important to have someone who could keep the energy going and the party bumping, and you did just that. I would recommend YOU any day over a DJ for all you brides out there. Thank you for making our day so memorable.

Our friends and relatives have not stopped talking about how fantastic you were at our wedding! You were an expert master of ceremonies, always keeping the wedding running smoothly. You had everyone (from ages 3 to 85) out on the dance floor from start to finish, and nobody wanted to miss a minute of your entertainment. Our guests were amazed at your singing versatility! From the first time I saw you at Petar's, I knew that I wanted to have you play at our wedding, and I was so thrilled when you changed your schedule to be able to accommodate our new wedding date. You were a huge part of the reason our wedding was so wonderful, and we can't thank you enough!

We cannot thank Dave enough for the amazing performance he put on at our wedding. Our family and friends absolutely loved all the music! When we got back from our honeymoon, everyone continued to talk about our wedding and how much fun it was. Dave was very easy to work with, courteous, punctual and well organized. He even found some special songs we requested. We would recommend Dave to anyone for any function, any time or any where. Thank you Dave!

From start to finish D.D. is an unbelieveable performer. Without a doubt a true talent, very professional, and you couldn't ask for a nicer guy to work with. I knew when I hired D.D. my wedding was is good hands. He exceeded every expectation and then some. You just cannot have a wedding without Diamond Dave."
