My name is Andres (DJ AP Andres). I was born in Ecuador and moved to the States as a young adult. I was always exposed to music listening to Boleros and Merengue from my Father’s old Rockola, and Hip Hop and Techno from my Uncle’s loud Stereo. However, it was not until the year 2000 when I was able to buy my first small DJ system that I started to learn how to DJ.
What started as a passionate hobby playing at small parties with friends, quickly turned into performing at weddings, quinceañeras and corporate events. Pretty soon I was DJ’ing at Clubs in DC while also performing at more and more Weddings. My experience with the clubs definitely gave an advantage as I learned the skills of mixing from one genre to another in a non stop flow of music that keeps the dance floor high energy all night. These skills were combined with all the rest of the elements that involve a wedding to create a perfect prospect of DJ for your wedding.
Fifteen years of experience, being bilingual, and my planning/DJ skills makes me a perfect choice as your DJ!
Empecé mi carrera como DJ en el año 2000 y he prestado mis servicios en diversos eventos y lugares en el área de VA, MD y DC, desde matrimonios y fiestas empresariales hasta aniversarios & cumpleaños, incluyendo grandes fiestas de quinceañeras. He participado y trabajado con varias embajadas en eventos de gala, además de trabajar en los dos últimos eventos de gala organizado por la Institución Smithsonian por el mes de la Hispanidad que ha contado con la presencia de varias personalidades del entretenimiento. He tocado en varios clubes de el área como Paper Moon, Café Citron, Mr. Smiths of Georgetown, Guarapo, Agua Ardiente, Caribean Breeze y El Centro. Cada fiesta es unica y cada una se preparara y se planea al gusto y de acuerdo a los requerimientos de cada cliente. El área de DC es muy diversa y mi manejo de Ingles y Español me convierte en un buen anunciante bilingue para su evento. Mi prioridad cuando estoy detrás de la consola es entretener a la audiencia, hacerles sentir que están en el lugar exacto sin importar la ocasión. Permítame ser parte de su importante evento.
“Hi Andres! Chris and I wanted to thank you for all your services at our wedding last month. You were hands-down our FAVORITE vendor, and you killed it on the dance floor! Every single song you played and how you mixed everything together was awesome (I’m sure you realized this as the dance floor was NEVER empty), and so many of our guests commented on how you were the best wedding DJ they’d ever heard. Chris and I absolutely agree- you were the best DJ and our reception was the best wedding dance-party we’d ever attended! 🙂 . Chris and I changed our minds a lot about the bridal party and first dance songs, and we want to thank you for having been so patient with our last-minute changes and requests. The way you but together the Avicci song for the bridal party entrance was flawless! That was one of our happiest moments during the wedding – hearing everyone get pumped up as the bridal party walked out and realizing that we were going to get to spend the next hours dancing with the people we loved most in the world! We are so glad that Michael Deltette recommended you to us, and we will definitely be recommending you to every DC bride we know! Please feel free to pass this email address along to anyone who’d like more info from a former client- we’d be happy to pass along the good review. :). Again, thank you for everything. You played a big part in making our wedding the most perfect day ever. Sincerely, Freddy and Chris”
“Andres was the perfect choice for our wedding. We told him we wanted a non-stop dance party and that is exactly what he gave us! High energy and high professionalism were what we got from him throughout the entire evening. Our guests never left the dance floor, and I constantly had people telling me how awesome our DJ was! We couldn’t have chosen a better DJ for our perfect night.
Thank you so much! You and your partner were AWESOME! You ran the show so smoothly and professionally. I heard so many compliments about you and the music you played.
Despite the hot, sweaty mess, everyone had a really good time!
Mario & I both said we would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a DJ.
Thank you again!
Liz & Mario
