We are a small crew of record geeks and party peoples based out of San Francisco who have been spinning records at local dives, house parties, weddings, art openings and events of every kind since 2005.
We at Lovesick Deejays aim to play records that connect with the faces and spaces of a night, that serve as a soundtrack to the good times in the here and now, that spark the grooves of memory and that shake our collective hip bones—that is, records to party down to. We respect the fact that no two parties are alike, which is why we hand-select every record we play to create something memorable, unique, and just a whole lot of fun.
In short: We love music, we love people, and we love what happens when you bring the two together. We are Lovesick Deejays.
DJ Bonnie Danger
Social worker by day, DJ extraordinaire by night, Ashley (aka DJ Bonnie Danger) has spent the last decade spinning records up and down the California coast.
Check her out at the Hemlock every fourth Saturday where she spins rock 'n' roll, glam, garage, and soul for Raw Power Happy Hour. Or, dance the night away as she serves grooves and moves at Delirium.
When he's not playing records for the Obamas, Stephen spends his time reading and playing chess. Or at least one of those things. (He does spend time.) A few of his favorite records include Prince Dirty Mind, Buzzcocks Singles Going Steady, Sam Cooke Live at the Harlem Square Club, David Bowie Hunky Dory and Daft Punk Discovery.
Check him out at your local danceteria.
“Booking Stephen and Ashley for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made about our big day. They completely read the crowd and really kept the party going. Almost every party guest commented on how fabulous they were. I plan on booking them again for any event that I am hosting. Such great DJs!”
“We hired Stephen for our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made for our event. Seriously, it was GREAT and led to some of the most fun dancing I can remember (which was exactly how you want to remember your wedding). He has an awesome collection of vinyl and was really attentive to what music we wanted played. Transitions between songs were seamless, he used fun remixes, and took crowd requests. He absolutely set the tone for a great dancing atmosphere and was down to earth, flexible, and easy to work with. His equipment sounded great, and this disco ball he brought was the perfect touch.
We recommended him for a friend’s wedding, and again, had so much fun dancing! If I could put a sixth star on the rating, I would. So do yourself a favor: hire Stephen and know that you are sonically set.”
“We used Lovesick Deejays for our office warming party. Our office houses 5 different companies, all of which are in the event industry. Thus, it was important that we find a DJ company that would knock the socks off of our guests and clients. Needless to say, Stephen and Ashley were amazing. They were timely, did their thing without needing any assistance from us- which in the events world- is a huge plus. More than anything though, I loved how they used actual turntables and records and not just their computers and/or an ipod. They were able to feel out the party and keep it mellow when it needed to be and ramp it up when the time called for it.
We are looking forward to having them back this year!”
“I have worked with many DJs from parties to weddings and the first people I call are Lovesick Deejays! They are the best in playing what you want, when you want, and they also bring their own flavor to the table when you really need the party to get started!”
“Fantastic experience from start to finish. Stephen and Ashley were incredibly friendly, professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and took great care in the music-selection process. They were open to all of our ideas (even played one of our own favorite vinyl records to create a special memory) and helped us scale down an insanely long songlist without compromising what we wanted to play or have the evening feel like. And on the night, everything went smoothly, and the music sounded awesome! First dance was timed perfectly, people danced their hearts out afterward - we’ll never forget it. Highly recommended, could not have been better, thank you Stephen & Ashley!”
