“Damien is an absolute dream to work with and I love having him perform at the weddings we plan. I would highly recommend Damien for any clients looking for a fantastic DJ in France. Damien communicates with our wedding clients brilliantly and really gets to know each couple to take their requests into account. His sets are always incredible and really make the weddings he takes part in special. In addition, he is perfect for those looking for one musician to manage the whole day, as his piano playing is truly beautiful for both ceremonies and the cocktail hour and the piano shell he uses is always a talking point! ”

  • I am so excited to rave about Damien, he truly was the X factor in making our wedding the best day of our lives. Damien was so helpful, and such a reassuring presence on our wedding day, and throughout the entire planning process. He was so responsive, answered every question, and helped us create the best music experience. We wanted to include some live music elements, but still have a DJ, and Damien made this lofty request a reality! Our saxophonist Harriet brought the house down, and had everyone on their feet dancing the entire night. The live drummer was outstanding, and brought so much energy and life to the music. We also asked for a guitarist for our cocktail hour, and he played the best music and somehow had AMAZING acoustics amidst a vast, beautiful, outdoor garden.

    My husband and I were dancing the entire night, we had the time of our lives! Damien took our request form to heart and made sure to honour all of our requests, while also bringing his expertise and judgment to the music selection. We had so many of our guests message us saying that it was the best music they have ever heard at a wedding. We have already recommended Damien to family members who are getting married next year. Going with Damien was the best decision we could have ever made for our special day.

  • After our engagement, Damien Keys was the second vendor we booked for our big day! We knew after booking our venue, they would be the most important people to make our wedding the best party! Damien is a true professional who made the entire process extremely smooth between booking, postponing and then rebooking. The night of our wedding was even more amazing than we imagined for ourselves! And that’s due to the music being ON POINT! We even had the percussionist who just enhanced the already amazing music! I would recommend Damien to anyone and everyone I meet!!! The absolute BEST DJ in France!!

  • My husband and I came across Damien through personal referrals, and we are so glad we did. He was AMAZING. I cannot even put into words how happy we were with his services. Damien made sure to put appointments on the calendar between booking and our reception in order to learn about our taste in music, our vision for the big day, and to get to know us personally. This helped him tailor the perfect set list for our big day. He was also a breeze to rebook (thankfully) when our first wedding had to be postponed due to Covid.

    On the big day Damien was our personal hero! When our violinist (booked separately) did not show up for the ceremony as he was supposed to, he found the songs we needed right away and djed our ceremony without batting an eye. We were beyond thankful for that flexibility. And last but definitely not least, our guests LOVED them the set as we did! The next day all anyone could talk about was how good the music was which, as a bride, you love to hear! My husband and I highly recommend Damien to anyone looking for an absolute 10/10 wedding!

  • If you're looking for entertainment for your wedding, stop looking now as you're in the right place! We booked Damien Keys for our destination wedding at a beautiful chateau near Bordeaux. Damien stayed with us for the whole weekend, performing 2 DJ sets, a cocktail piano set that was simply stunning and played me down the isle with the most beautiful version of Pachabel Canon. Everyone was in tears. Damien was so much more than just another vendor at our wedding. We got to know him over the course of the weekend and he became an integral part of the wedding. Always positive, always happy to assist and incredibly talented. Our guests are still talking about how amazing the music was. We're just looking for an excuse to throw another party and we'll start all over again! Thank you so much and we wish you every success.

  • Three words: THE ABSOLUTE BEST! We recently used Damien Keys for my daughter's wedding. Damien was honest, attentive, responsive and very calming leading up to the event. As a DJ he was super accommodating as he worked with us the day before the party to change up all the ceremony songs. The party was absolutely amazing! The dance floor was packed from beginning to end - Weeks after the party was over, people were still talking about how fantastic Damien and his team were. Damien made this important day for my daughter and new husband truly memorable and we will forever be grateful!

     
    Dominique & Chris
  • To say amazing experience is an understatement. The wedding was amazing! Damien's DJ set was jaw-dropping awesome! He was so talented! Before the party began we confirmed some details and I told him that we became instant best friends because he loves all the same music as we did. Once he knew that he understood our musical taste even more and made the night amazing! He was funny, entertaining, and never a bother! I can not express enough all of the positive that my guests, my husband and I felt that night. Damien you were amazing! Anyone and everyone use his services!

  • Working with Damien as our wedding DJ was one of the best decisions we made in the run-up to our wedding. He was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We decided to host our wedding in France where we are based but had friends and family coming from all over the world. This meant a large degree of variety was required from our entertainment in order to please the wide range of nationalities and age groups. Our initial consultation which took place on Skype, and from that moment Damien was incredibly easy to work with. His responses in the run-up to the day were always dealt with swiftly and without hassle, and Damien went above and beyond in really trying to understand us a people and tailoring a musical experience that reflected our tastes. Small details that was hadn't originally considered, such as requests for cake cutting music, entrance music and if we wanted any specific songs really meant a lot and made things run smoothly. Damien was attentive but unobtrusive, a huge plus point to our beautiful celebration. He was as far away from a traditional, cheesy wedding DJ as you could hope to find, and we cannot recommend his services highly enough.
    Alexandra & David
  • I am SO SO glad that we found Damien! He was the perfect match for us! We were really stuck on DJs because we wanted someone who was cool, down-to-earth and who would make our wedding fun and not cheesy. I spoke with Damien on the phone for all of 5 minutes and when I hung up I told my then fiance that we just HAVE to book him. His knowledge of the venue was impeccable having played there on several previous occasions for weddings. We originally booked him just for a DJ set but then added his piano set and a pool party set the following day. He was incredibly flexible, super talented and so friendly. Damien became a huge part of our wedding and all our friends are still talking about THAT dance floor.
    Katherine & Joshua
  • Damien is the greatest. We got married at Lake Como in Italy which is truly stunning, and I couldn’t think of anyone else I would rather play my wedding. Damien was included on a recommended list of entertainment from our wedding planner. I was very picky about what I wanted played and gave Damien a ton of suggestions which he took and crafted into a perfect playlist, adding in other songs I wouldn’t have thought of but played great. He then delivered like no one else for the dance floor. People are still talking about our wedding party and it was all because of him. We also booked Damien's cocktail piano set which took place towards the lower section of the venue where we had canapés. His piano playing is truly outstanding and really added to the classical vibe we were going for. Being able to book the same vendor for the cocktail reception and after party was a huge bonus for us with no prior knowledge of weddings in Italy, and it was a pleasure to have Damien involved on our special day. We will never forget your incredible contribution.
    Jenny & Michael
  • Damn, that playlist! Honestly, you could feel everyone’s excitement over each new song, as they were blended in such a thrill-inducing way (don’t know how else to describe it!) and each new track was unexpected but perfect. We wanted 90s hip hop and epic dance songs and the result was a high-energy dance floor that left more than one person telling me Damien was the best DJ they’d ever heard at a wedding. (I recommend picking a few foundational songs to set the tone and then really let him work their magic with the rest.) Also, leading up to my wedding Damien was incredibly responsive, accommodating every request and even helping with a non-DJ sound issue I brought to him that my venue wasn’t sure of. I felt really confident about him leading up to the wedding and then he killed it on our big day. Thank you so much!
    James & Sara
  • We flew over from the US for our wedding near Bordeaux in western France. Originally we were concerned about the prospect of finding suitable entertainment in a country where we won't speak the language. We were recommended to contact Damien Keys  by our venue and booking him was a brilliant decision as he was outstanding. His DJ set kept the energy and the party going, he played an amazing mix of different genres and eras to make there was something for each of our guests to enjoy and dance to. We could not have asked for a better DJ to lead our wedding reception! We also booked him the following day for our pool party which was really cool, an awesome vibe and huge success.
    Jaimee & Ian
  • Damien Keys is a fantastic DJ for anyone getting married in France. We booked him after a recommendation from our planner. We booked a DJ set, sound equipment for the ceremony, cocktails, meal and pool party the following day and the whole service was fantastic. Communication was excellent and Damien, who was an absolute gent on the day of the wedding had the whole place rocking. We recommended Damien to our friends who are getting married next year in France and would do so to anyone. Nothing but positive vibes from us!

    Mark & Hannah
  • We absolutely loved having Damien as part of our south of France celebrations. We booked him for all three days of the wedding, from the BBQ on the Friday night, wedding on the Saturday and Ibiza style pool party on the Sunday. Damien was absolutely incredible and made our day even more special than we had hoped. Our entire guest list is still messaging to compliment how good the music was. We had a Zoom meeting originally to discuss our tastes (which are fairly eclectic to say the least). He was always very quick to respond to our (many, sorry!) emails and very attentive on the day when it came to special requests. If we ever have another party we will absolutely contact Damien - thanks again so much for turning our wedding into an incredible party!
    Harriet & Robert
  • Wow! From the very first meeting, we were totally put at ease by Damien's professionalism and knowledge of his craft. We were getting married in France and were fairly nervous about booking a local DJ as the majority of our guests were from the UK. Safe to say all our fears evaporated as soon as we came across Damien and his team. He listened to all our requests, made suggestions (which worked out brilliantly) and played a brilliant set which had everyone (including my grandparents!) on the dance floor until the early hours. We can't recommend Damien Keys enough to anyone getting married in France.
    Catherine & Mark
  • What an epic party! Before our wedding we had discussions with Damien over zoom, which was really handy as we were coming from Australia and couldn't meet in person. We created some playlists and Damien worked seamlessly around it - he completely understood how we imagined our wedding playlist to work and helped bring it to reality. The whole set up was brilliant from start to finish with the dancefloor full for the entire night. It's clear Damien loves what he does and does it all with a positive attitude, always smiling! Damien played an absolutely massive part in making our wedding so memorable.
    Trudy & James
