Why Choose Us?

When planning a wedding or other event, few people truly understand the impact that choosing a DJ will have on it. Underestimating the significance of the DJ is like underestimating the importance of the pilot on a trip across the Atlantic. The DJ you choose will literally make or break your event and this is why you should choose a DJ with the right skills. A DJ should be organized, personable, fun and possess excellent communication skills. Don't put your event in the hands of just any DJ because the stakes are high, make a sound choice by choosing DJ Phil Baker. We possess the right skills and this is why 

we are the Central Valley's premier mobile DJ company.


Hank & Ashley Olson


“What can I say that hasn't already been said? Phil was such a breeze to work with and really knows what he's doing. From the moment I sat down with him I knew he'd be a perfect fit for our wedding. He listened to all of my music suggestions and really seemed to understand our eclectic taste. He wasn't afraid to give his professional opinion and I really appreciated that. He went above and beyond on the wedding day and all my guests loved his mad emcee skills. He really was such a blessing to have and made the evening go by so much easier than it would have, had he not been there. We have found our DJ for all our family events! Thank so much DJ Phil!”

Robbie & Kristen Brooks


“My husband and I got married in 2012 at the Robinson Family Ranch! I used to work at a bridal salon so I'm not the easiest bride to work with as I know what I want and I can be particular and indecisive…practically a “bride-zilla”. Phil was always VERY accommodating and willing to meet with me, in person even. He definitely wanted to do whatever he could to make sure that my wishes and dreams for the day were met. My sister even asked him for music, for her maid-of-honor speech, that day, and he completely came through and it really enhanced her speech. Everyone had a really amazing time at our wedding and music played a big part in that! He did an amazing job and he definitely has the most competitive prices! Thank you DJ Phil!”

Josh & Melissa Natham


“DJ Phil is awesome! My husband and I were so lost on how weddings should run and Phil gave us the direction we needed to make our reception a fun party! We only had to meet with him once before the wedding, which was ideal for us since we were from out of town, and he planned a perfect party for us. On the wedding day we were running late, but he kept us on schedule the whole night and even made the necessary adjustments during the reception that made it possible for us to have the party we wanted! Book Phil as your DJ and you definitely won't be disappointed!”

Crystal Webb


“The issue of whom to hire as the DJ for our 25 year reunion (Escalon High class of 1989) was much debated amongst our planning committee, and actually became a bit of a sore subject at one point, until I took it upon myself to make the decision for the group and hire DJ Phil. Two different committee members came up to me during the reunion last night to tell me that I had made the right decision in hiring DJ Phil, so thank you for making me look good! Last night was great and thanks again for all your hard work!”

Jonathan & Georgia Grant


“Okay, so where do I begin? I got married to my husband September of 2015 and we chose DJ Phil as our DJ. We couldn't of made a better decision! He was an absolute joy to be around from the very beginning. I contacted him a few months before my wedding after he was recommended to me, and by the time we met to discuss the details I was just a mess of stress! I had never been to a wedding let alone planned one! Phil made a complete outline for how my wedding was going to go. He even worked with me on the price, and I got an amazing deal. But putting that aside, Phil isn't just a DJ he becomes a great friend and my husband and I are so grateful he was able to make our special day that much more special. Everyone loved the music and the dance floor was never empty. I would hands down recommend DJ Phil to anyone! Thanks DJ Phil!”

Julie Layman


“Having never hired a DJ before, and going into the planning a little naive, we were so thankful that we had chosen DJ Phil! We used him for a teenage event, they had a great time, dancing the night away. Just as importantly, it was nice knowing that DJ Phil would only play clean versions of the songs. When hosting an event you don't have time to research all the lyrics, DJ Phil did that for me! He also kept the crowd going, knowing when a change of pace was needed.  DJ Phil's pricing is very competitive and we will hire him again when we need a DJ!”
