What People Are Saying
Sort testimonials by type:
True professionals. They took our list of music and crafted an evening that really captured the vibe that we wanted. DJ Tecumseh (Isaac) played the songs that we loved that weren't even on the list, by "reading through the lines" of our music. They worked so smoothly with the venue and our coordinator. The uplighting and the video screens really added to experience, without being overwhelming in the venue. They will make your event!

You can't go wrong with Bamboo Beats. Other vendors light up with they hear that you've hired Bamboo Beats. For example, our photographer was asking about the lighting in our venue, and the second that we mentioned that Bamboo Beats was in charge of it, he relaxed and exclaimed, "You don't need to say anything more. Those guys will make it look fantastic and we will have no problems." Of course, he was correct.
— Caitlin + Colin
Seattle wedding couple, AXIS Pioneer Square
I cannot even begin to imagine how our wedding & reception would have been as much fun without DJ Tecumseh. I must have been asked by 10 different people if we chose every song that he played because the music was absolutely perfect! Shoot, even my mom was out getting her groove on! Thanks for everything. You guys were top notch from planning through execution. If we ever do another party in the Seattle area, we will definitely be looking you up!

Kirkland wedding couple, Woodmark Hotel
You were such a pleasure to work with! The only thing I really cared about on our wedding day was I wanted to dance and have a good time doing it! Thanks for the great beats & a great celebration. You pulled some people on that dance floor that I would have never predicted. Thanks for all your hard work!
— Astri + Jeff
Seattle wedding couple, Melrose Market Studios
What a fabulous evening you created for Truc and John. We could not have been more pleased. I think you are an asset that no wedding should be without. Our caterer told us not to let anyone talk us into any other DJ. It had to be Bamboo Beats and ignore other recommendations. She was right on. Nothing but positive comments for you. Thanks for making this quickly planned event magical.

All of my guests said that Bamboo Beats was the best DJ they had ever heard at a wedding. It was the perfect balance between making sure that everything kept moving and playing awesome music. He read the crowd perfectly and everyone had a great time in large part because of the music.

When eating sushi with a master chef, you should be encouraged to order Omakase (aka, chef's choice) to get the best dining experience. When it comes to wedding music, Isaac and Jojo provide the Omakase experience of DJs. Once our guests were invited to the dance floor, they didn't leave until the venue kicked us all out.
— Christine + Bert
Seattle wedding couple, Seattle Aquarium
Honestly, I don’t think of myself of a huge dancer without some liquid courage…but two seconds into the reception I couldn’t hold back. And neither could my guests – young and old. I had a couple song requests, and they took over the rest with absolute perfection. Huge success. Everyone is still talking about awesome my DJ was!
— Elissa + John
Woodinville wedding couple, Novelty Hill Januik Winery
Bamboo Beats was organized and awesome. Jojo and Isaac are a well oiled machine. They helped us plan our our wedding ceremony to a T. ... The most awesome part: they helped off-set our wedding's carbon footprint!! They are very eco-friendly which is something that is near and dear to my heart. Way to go, Bamboo Beats!
— Paige + Cory
Seattle wedding couple, Lake Union Cafe
Hiring Bamboo Beats was one of the best things we did concerning our wedding. Because we wanted a party, we ended up doing the Video DJ option. So awesome! It's something we'd never seen done before and was so tailored to us. I can't recommend this rockstar team enough. You will not be disappointed!!!
— Emily + Reed
Seattle wedding couple, Melrose Market Studios
A year has passed since you spun at our wedding and we are still dancing! Thank you so much for making it such an amazing experience. You gave that beautiful, yet stuffy venue a life of it's own with sound. You two are a hell of a team and we wish you nothing but the best!
— Darcie + Neal
Seattle wedding couple, The Sunset Club
Our DJ created the perfect atmosphere for our reception, from the cocktail hour to the last dance. He did a great job transitioning from more traditional wedding songs that appealed to every one early in the reception, to more of a dance party later in the night. And he also did a great job keeping the pace of the reception going so people never got bored. I would recommend them to anyone.
— Lisa + Matthew
Seattle wedding couple, The Canal
Isaac and Jojo made a promise that they would be playing music that would make it impossible for people to leave the dance floor, and they were right! We were having so much fun on the dance floor that it was basically impossible to leave. The work of Bamboo Beats went a long way in making our big day as amazing as we had dreamed. If you want the best, be sure to work with Bamboo Beats!
— Ashley + Matthew
Seattle wedding couple, Fremont Foundry
The planning process was easy and solid. We live in a different city and setup a face to face meeting to get to know Isaac and talk about the process. They were very organized, with forms to fill out. They asked all of the right questions about the logistics and allowed us to fill out song preferences.

I just wanted to say that Bamboo Beats totally killed it last night! Every single person I spoke to said that the music was incredible. I swear, it was as if you were playing my perfect playlist. It was incredible. I so appreciate how brilliantly you fused all of the styles of music together. I was blown away. I couldn't stop dancing.
— Jaimie + Travis
Seattle wedding couple, Herban Feast, Sodo Park
Bamboo Beats was the easiest decision we made in our wedding planning. They truly are the best and I wouldn't think twice about hiring them for anything. Jojo & DJ Tecumseh took care of every single need & request my husband and I had. We also gave a decent amount of very particular song & vibe requests and were not let down - DJ Tecumseh put on the best dance party we could have asked for.
— Kaila + Zach
Seattle wedding couple, Westland Distillery
Bamboo Beats was absolutely incredible. They were extremely easy to work with. Their responsiveness and organization made the whole planning process stress free. Their ability to incorporate the various genres of music we had chosen and perfectly incorporate it so that everyone, from grandkids to the grandparents, were on the dance floor.
— Julie + Dylan
Seattle Wedding couple, Herban Feast Sodo Park
Bamboo Beats was probably the best wedding decision that I made. They were great to work with and set the mood perfectly. So many people try to save money and cut corners with the DJ, which I do not understand. Do you want to invest in good sound quality and a fabulous atmosphere? Bamboo Beats is worth every penny. I got the most compliments on the music! Our dance party was epic!
— Libby + John
Seattle wedding couple, Sodo Park wedding
The wedding reception is essentially theater, and you need a Broadway production quality crew to take the party to the next level. That's what we got with Bamboo Beats. Let me save you the headache of trying to find a better wedding DJ team than these two right here -- cause you simply won't find it (trust me I've been to many, many weddings).
— Helen + Omar
Seattle wedding couple, Arctic Club
I work in the wedding industry myself, and have worked alongside Jojo and Isaac on many weddings. They'd proven their professionalism countless times over, so booking them for my own wedding was one of the easiest decisions in the whole planning process. They really made our wedding complete; the music kicked ass and their service was world class.

You guys are RIDICULOUS!!! I can't thank you enough for laying down the sickest beats at our party and if I had a nickel for everyone who said that they couldn't even leave the dance floor to grab a drink because every song was killer, I'd be rich!!!! Well, not really since there was only 85 guests, but still!! Amazing..."

Bamboo Beats are the DJ to hire for your next special event! They were the DJ I chose for my own wedding two years ago. And now I refer them to our clients having events at SAM.
— Erin Brophy

We LOVE working with Bamboo Beats for weddings!!! They certainly know how to throw an awesome dance party, provide top-notch service and are some of the nicest people in the biz. When our couples tell us they want a fun wedding reception with lots of dancing we always recommend Bamboo Beats!

The DJ/MC of your party holds the greatest responsibility for how your guests are entertained and how your party feels. Make sure you put that responsibility in hands you can trust. I trust in Bamboo Beats.
The Invisible Hostess, Seattle Wedding Planner
As a local wedding planner, I know when Bamboo Beats is involved, it's going to be a GOOD wedding! They are always organized, thorough, and I just adore Jojo. I have worked with several of their DJ's and they ALL deliver a packed dance floor, great vibes, on time days, and great MC'ing etc. I highly recommend them to all of my couples, and anyone getting married! ALWAYS a great time!

The interactions with the genuinely lovely Jojo during booking process, to the true talent that the DJ's bring to the scene, sets the tone for your party.

I hired Waylon (WD4D) from Bamboo Beats for our Corporate Christmas party and he was the BEST! He did a wonderful job of reading the crowd and the vibe of the party! The music was on point all night long!! Highly recommend Bamboo Beats and will definitely use them again in the future for personal & corporate events!

Bamboo Beats made our event, the event of the YEAR! They were on time, professional and exciting to all that attended our Winterfest event. As a matter a fact we just booked them for 2016. I would encourage everyone to call and book them if you want an exciting event from the beginning to the end.

Thank you both so much for helping us make the WAC's 86th Jubilee a great success. You were so wonderful to work with from start to finish---responsive, organized and quality. And from the looks of the packed dance floor, our members thoroughly enjoyed your mix and music that night.
— Melissa Borders

We want to thank you for helping us create such a memorable event. Without your talents and the energy you brought to the room with your awesome music, we could not have made it such a complete success. The response we have received both during the party and after has been tremendous and we hope you also made great connections with the attendees.
— Justine Cosme

WHAT’S WITH THE NAME?
The Bamboo Beats name represents good luck and prosperity.
We embrace Eastern philosophy and wisdom. The Bamboo Beats name was inspired by the luck, prosperity and longevity that the bamboo plant symbolizes. Our goal is to mark each event by our presence and bestow good fortune on our clients and their guests, so that they too may enjoy long and happy lives. The bamboo plant is also known for its sustainability, flexibility and adaptability to many environments.
What’s the difference between hiring a DJ or just using an iPod?
If you think you don’t have the budget for an awesome DJ and want to use an iPod… Think again. Your iPod can do many things, but it will NOT read the crowd, blend the best parts of a song, pick up the pace, mix in requests on the fly or create a frenzy on the dance floor. Unfortunately, you can’t “scroll back” on your wedding day, so our advice is to move forward with the best DJ you can afford!
What type of music do you play?
Our music tastes are Universal. We enjoy all genres and create musical atmospheres that match the desired mood expressed by our clients along with music that appeals to the vibe of the crowd.
Do you have emcee experience?
As with many world class performing artists, our DJs are humble and genuine when you meet them in person. Our style is low-key and tasteful, our DJs are never inappropriate, won’t crack jokes and definitely enhance the environment rather than cause distraction. We are very organized and keep things flowing smoothly so you don’t have to worry about what’s happening next.
Do your DJs work full time?
We strive to maintain the highest quality of DJ services as possible. We also believe in sharing the love with other reputable DJs that take party rocking seriously. All of our DJs are professional, full time DJs. DJing is not a weekend job for us, this is our only livelihood.
How do you typically interact with guests?
The way we interact with guests is to create an amazing music environment from the ceremony to the cocktail hour to dinner. We let the music speak for itself. Then, our DJs get you and your guests moving on the dance floor! We usually don’t perform any interactive games or forced activities, but if you have any cultural traditions or themed ideas we most definitely are down to incorporate them.
What do you typically wear?
Modern black dress shirt and black pants. We work hard behind the turntables, so a suit jacket and tie are by request only.
How are you a green DJ?
We are proud to be Seattle’s First Green DJ! We make a conscientious effort to green our business from buying carbon offsets to using sustainable vendors for our business needs such as eco-friendly printing, web hosting, dry cleaning, etc.
Each event is different but for your reference, most weddings start at $3000.
Please fill out the form and Jojo will email our current DJ packages. After you review our rates, we would love to set up a time to chat in person.
To confirm a booking with us we will ask for a signed contract and a 50% upfront booking fee via check or charge, with the balance due two weeks prior to your event.
