Reviews for Destination Paradise Entertainment
I can't believe how hard Taki and Troy worked to make my event such a success. Their dedication and artistic vision are unparalleled, and I really appreciated their willingness to remain flexible as the details and theme of the event evolved. No one has stopped talking about the party and I honestly feel it's because of their work that the event was such a success. They're more like Broadway set directors than your typical throw-up-some-twinkle-lights wedding team. And Taki's DJ-ing was out of this world-- he read the crowd and delivered an insanely fun night, somehow managed to get the 20-something's and 70-somethings dancing together! The whole thing felt seamless and really effortless. I'm really thankful for their positivity, humor, and the way they somehow made a 200 person event feel simultaneously intimate and epic. Would reccomend them whole-heartedly!

Taki did a fantastic job, he has a nice website where you can pick all the songs you want played and when and then make a list of please do not play EVER, which is nice. He came to the rescue when the keyboard didn't show up for the ceremony and quickly downloaded songs and played them while I walked down the aisle. Highly recommended and very friendly! You can't go wrong.

We at Tropical Shell & Gift, Inc. recently hired DJ Taki from Destination Paradise Entertainment to provide the music entertainment for our post-holiday employee party and the outcome was terrific! They had a great assortment of music that keeps the crowd dancing. Their professionalism made booking a breeze and everything ran smooth. Thank you for a great experience.

Troy & Taki go the extra ten miles to make sure the venue was lit up to perfection. We spent a lot of time walking through the space and figuring out inventive ways to light the various areas. We were greatly impressed and the event could not have looked any better!

Taki was amazing!!!! He was so nice with all that was going on with the changes that we had to make last minute because some guests... family and bridesmaids did not make it because of cancelled flights... Hurricane Matthew did not stop us!!!

It was truly a pleasure working with Taki and Troy for our Conch Republic Seafood Company Christmas Party. The lighting transformed our entire restaurant into a beautiful holiday party and the music that Taki played kept our employees dancing until the end of the event. Also, the photo booth was such a hit that our employees are still talking about it. They not only got to keep the traditional photo strips, but also were able to text the photos as they were taken and the pictures were also posted on Facebook to “like” and “share.” We loved working with Destination Paradise Entertainment and recommend all of their services.

Hard Rock Cafe Key West has worked with many entertainment organizations and DJ’s/MC’s since opening in 1996. All of us in the management team have been very impressed with your recent services at both the “Pink Party” and The 70’s Studio 50 Disco Party. You, as the amazing DJ and MC, orchestrated both events so that everything flowed seamlessly and both lighting and music set the atmosphere. When our guests entered the cafe they were astounded at how your lighting transformed our venue into something magnificent. From the pink-hued uplighting on all our landscaping, building and walls to the moving heads with giant beams of vibrant light imagery on the dance floor - HARD ROCK LIT UP DUVAL ST. Our annual Pinktober Fundraiser in partnership with Lower Keys Medical Center was a smashing success. We are still getting compliments from many of our guests. What can we say about the Disco Party as well. Song choices kept everyone thoroughly entertained and dancing the entire night with a sound system and sound level that worked well with guests of every age group. We’re very impressed with the professionalism and competence of Destination Paradise Entertainment and will contact and recommend you for future events. A Big Thank You for making our job so much easier.

Destination Paradise & DJ Taki's professionalism and enthusiasm for our wedding day is what set them apart. They saw our vision regarding our wedding party entrance music / music throughout our reception and ran with it in a way to make it better than we imagined. We wanted our wedding day to be a unique experience for all involved, which we succeeded in doing, and this would not have been possible without DJ Taki. Thank you for everything.

I wish to thank Destination Paradise Entertainment for the wonderful job that Taki has done for me on more than one occasion. Taki knows how to work a crowd, keep everyone going and happy. He made our housewarming party really perfect by getting everyone up on the dance floor and keeping them on there! He was polite, professional, flexible, funny and overall, helped our guests have a great time. Everyone was raving about how great the music was as well his patience with our endless music requests. To make the night even more spectacular and magical was the Destination Paradise Entertainment light show. The property was beautifully lit up especially around the pool and gazebo area and the laser show was unforgettable. Thanks so much for a very special night.

For over 10 years, DJ Taki entertained thousands of guests at Fat Tuesday Key West. I can’t begin to explain how many people recount their stories to me about the memories they have from Fat Tuesday while on their vacation. More times than not, DJ Taki is a part of their story. He always has a huge smile and positive attitude while playing the music that people want to hear. He also has a great ability to read the crowd and play music from multiple genres to keep everyone interested and on the dance floor. Always professional and very reliable, DJ Taki was a performer that I could always count on. He truly cares about the success of any event, large or small. I recommend him and your guests will love him.
