It’s your special day, let Dershin Music set the tone, one that you and all your guests will love to hear.  From the first song to the last, we want to make it special!  Let’s make it a great party!

We work closely with the bride and groom to ensure a tailored music selection for their big day.  We set the appropriate mood with a tasteful selection of music from the moment guests arrive, through dinner and on to getting everyone up on the dance floor, when the time is just right!  We take into account the fact that people of all ages will be in attendance and will bring them to the dance floor, time and time again.  Our aim is that everyone will report back that they absolutely loved the music.

Gaby has DJ'd many many weddings for people from all walks of life.  He began his Wedding DJ career when friends of his wanted their favorite DJ to spin at their wedding.  This took him to weddings in far reaching places such as the South of France, Colombia and Bali.



"Gaby was an amazing DJ for our cozy wedding in Tofino, BC. He was professional, down to earth, and incredibly easy to work with. He always got back to us by email or phone promptly and was willing to accommodate any requests we had. When it came to the wedding day everything fell together seamlessly. He is clearly a dedicated and experienced DJ - easily reading the room, keeping everyone on the dance floor and transitioning between songs without skipping a beat. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day.

"Now that things have settled down from the wedding I just wanted to write and say thank you very much for helping to make our wedding reception a success. It was great having you there, everyone had a blast. The Latin women were very happy with the music! 

I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for DJ services.”

"Kohle and I just wanted to say that we had an amazing time at our reception!  Everyone could not say enough about how great the music was and did not want the party to stop!! We will definitely be recommending you to our friends and family for future events!"

Lauren & Kohle   [Parksville]

“Thank you so much for DJ’ing our wedding for us.  You did a fantastic job and we received many compliments on the music!

Thank you also for saving the day during the ceremony.  We had a pretty copper watering can to water our ceremony tree but it never made it.  So you saved the day and added comic relief with our new bottled water watering can :) ”

Tiffany & Colin   [Arbutus Ridge Golf Club]

“We hired Gaby to DJ our wedding.  We had guests from 2 years old to 80 years old.  He started the music selection with music that all ages would recognize and got everyone up and dancing.  He transitioned seamlessly into more contemporary music by the end of the night.  Gabby played something for everyone, his energy was great and he could read the crowd effortlessly and make changes when necessary.  I would absolutely recommend him for any event.”

Cathy & Kevin   [Merridale Cidery]

"Gaby created an incredible musical experience at my wedding - one that my wife and I will never forget.  All of our guests were rocking and partied until the bitter end - we didn't want the party to stop!  Gaby is exceptionally easy to work with and is the consummate professional.  I can't thank him enough for making our wedding experience unforgettable!"

Michael & Nioka   [Cartagena, Colombia]

"Gaby was the perfect DJ for our wedding. He did music flawlessly right from pre-ceremony through to the last song of the night. He kept in tune with the crowd, had great communication, and he was just an all around great addition to the night. Thanks Gaby!!

Michelle & Scott   [Church & State Wines]


"European weddings are typically all-night events, so he had to plan for an entire evening of work – this meant long playlists and impeccable preparation.  He overcame all of the above in a big, big way, and we owe a big part of the success of the event to him.  Friends and family members still tell us that our wedding was one of the best parties they ever attended.  Of course, this was our goal all along. "

Barry & Flo   [South of France]

"Hi gaby, thank you so much for the great evening of dancing!! People are still saying what an amazing time that was and how much their feet hurt from dancing!”

Krista & Pat   [Alders Beach Resort]


"3 weeks before the wedding, We went over the type of music that we wanted to be played... We discussed hourly rates, which were very reasonable as compared to other djs that we had talked to... We couldn't have been more pleased with the way the party turned out. Gaby really hit the spot and everyone enjoyed it. The dance party was really the highlight of the night. Gaby is the man!"

Lina & Ian   [Brooklyn, NY]


"Gaby was a true pleasure to work with. He has two ears to listen and one mouth to speak during our initial meeting.  Once the occasion arose he played exactly how how we planned.  He truly kept the vibe going at the party.  Once the dancing really began he kept the crowd super alive.  We performed dance moves we never would before from his tunes.  Super pleasure to work with."

Mike & Michael   [Manhattan, NY]
