"We hired Dave Bywater for our July, 2010 wedding in Sicklerville NJ. I was looking for someone to set a fun, casual but romantic wedding day. Dave filled our requests and so much more!! He played his acoustic guitar for the ceremony and cocktail hour, then emceed the reception. He played " Crazy Love" by Van Morrison and nailed it!! It was magical and just how I IMAGINED it in my head. He did a great "I'm Yours" during the ceremony keeping the mood light. He was diverse and his sound was smooth and relaxing. Then for the reception, I have to say he was vibrant not over the top like you can get with some dj's. He played a great selection for dinner and as soon as it was done he started the party!! He got everyone dancing and even got down on the floor himself teaching all the guests fun new dances. I received nothing but wonderful reviews from all our guests. If you're looking for someone who can do it all and do it well, choose Dave. You won't be disappointed." - Jenn and Dave, Sicklerville, NJ
"Dave was the PERFECT match for our wedding reception. He was professional, entertaining, and fun. Dave's song list is extensive and my husband and I got to hear all of our favorites. Everyone at the reception commented on what a wonderful job Dave did. I would HIGHLY recommend Dave!" - Laura A, Wedding Reception, New Tripoli, PA
"Dave is very talented musician! He made our wedding day so special by customizing his services to our needs and learning a song by my husband's favorite band to perform as a secret dedication during our reception! The live music during the cocktail hour and while our guests were eating was only matched by his wonderful selections of dance classics to get our guests jumping after dinner. It was a beautiful day and Dave truly made the reception more than we could have asked for. If you are hesitating DON'T! He is extremely talented, professional and made our day fun and memorable. We look forward to using him again for other family functions. - Victoria S, Westbury, NY
"Dave was our musician and dj for our wedding. He was tremendous. Our guests repeatedly complimented us on him. We had a wide range of ages at the wedding, from 99yrs to 3 months, and Dave played music to fit everyone's tastes. He was especially good at keeping the younger kids involved. Dave brought glow sticks for them and you would have thought he gave them gold they were so excited. We would not hesitate to recommend Dave to anyone, or hire him for our next event." - Chris C, Flourtown, PA
