David was a great DJ. He was very accommodating and figured out what music people liked most as night went along. We had a great time and party goers all thought he was great with a lot of musical variety. He also showed great attention to detail when they as the host made an announcement for the birthday girl. Thanks, Roger

We would recommend DJ Buddy Holly for any special occasion. He performed for our wedding November 17, 2012 and it was absolutely perfect. My aunt and uncle usually NEVER would dance and they were having a blast!!He knows exactly what to play to please the crowd. At the end everyone thank us for a memorable wedding. Thank you DJ Buddy Holly!!!

We had an event in downtown San Francisco, not easy to access with parking and setting up, but Dave was great. So professional, courteous and everyone was very impressed with his style and music selection. Thanks so much for a great nights fun. Eanna and Allison.

Dj Buddy Holly exceeded our expectations! He arrived on time, acted and dressed professionally, and was really easy to work with. He implemented all of our special requests and really listened to what we wanted. He was able to interact with the crowd and our guests danced all night! He really kept the party going. I would definitely hire buddy again.

DJ Buddy Holly did an awesome job at our daughters wedding reception. He had people up all night on the dance floor. Everyone from 80- 5 years old enjoyed the mix DJ Buddy put out. There was one song they requested not be played that did get played but I'm sure it was a request from individuals at the reception and he just tried to make everyone happy. He was very accomodating to anything we wanted. He also provided his services at a reasonable rate... we would highly recommend David (DJ Buddy Holly).

David Kramer performed his DJ talents at our amazing wedding on 6/11/2016 in Midtown Sacramento, CA. The process was seamless from start to finish. He met with us a few weeks prior our wedding to go over the songs we requested and the timeline of our event. David played throughout our cocktail hour, ceremony, and reception. David was very in tune with our guests and took requests from them and was able to play all types of music. We highly recommend David Kramer for his talented DJ expertise. He was prompt, professional, and accommodating. Our wedding was simply wonderful and our guests had an amazing time and danced the night away. Thank you David!

We hired DJ Buddy Holly for a school dance. We are a small rural school in the middle of "nowhere." DJ Buddy Holly was delightful, and he arrived early so he could find us. His attitude was one of appreciation for us hiring him! We were so glad to have him drive so far to entertain us. The students just loved him and they said "it was the most fun they have had at a dance for as long as they could remember." They want him for our Prom in May. As an advisor I would hire him again and I would recomend him to any other school rural or urban. We would like to thank DJ Buddy Holly for a very fun evening! Valerie Suess, Gerlach High School

DJ Buddy Holly was amazing! He showed up early, was very accommodating to requests, and played great music. This was a high school prom, and he kept the kids on the dance floor right up until the end of the night. Great to work with, extremely pleasant to talk with, and we loved the music choices. I would totally request his services again for other events and will recommend him to others!
