Very few DJs in Orange County have the resume and experience that I have. I started my journey as a DJ in 1987. Already a music lover, I landed a dream job at my company FLY BY NIGHT Disc Jockeys and have never looked back. As the current owner of FLY BY NIGHT, I continue to perfect my craft and to pass along my extensive knowledge to younger DJs starting out. But that is just a synopsis of my history. As your DJ, I will provide you the expertise, guidance, and peace of mind required when planning an important event. Not only do I perform over a hundred events yearly but I meet with hundreds more brides and grooms to assist them with the music details and structure of their event. I always have my finger on the pulse of what is current and relevant to a contemporary wedding or event. As your emcee, I am balanced, knowing when to step forward and lead an event, and knowing when to step back and let the crowd enjoy the vibe. I can handle any level of emcee duty from general announcements, grand entrances with extensive wedding party members, as well as the ability to host games and activities. My persona is professional, fun, affable, and most importantly approachable. I want you and your guests to feel like I am part of the party and can talk to me and make requests. My performances are completely unique to every event and I do not perform an act. DJing is a people art and music is one of many tools I use to influence a room. Because of my experience I am adept at reading a room and adjusting my style to the crowd in front of me, successfully. Musically, I draw upon this same experience and can play almost an unlimited array of music tastes. I can play Top 40, Country, EDM, Trap, '90s Hip Hop, Current Hip Hop, K-Pop, J-Pop, MandoPop, Classic R&B, '90s R&B, Classic Rock, Jazz, '80s Classics, Classic Alternative, Indie, Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Mariachi, Rock En Español, Banda, Reggaeton, Tamborazo, Arabic, Chutney, Bollywood, Punjabi, Hindi, Cambodian/Khmer, Vietnamese, Disco, '90s Club, Hi-NRG Disco, Freestyle, Hawaiian, Art Laboe Oldies, '60s, '70s, Punk, Heavy Metal, Funk, '90s Grunge, Roots and Contemporary Reggae, Soca, and many more styles that I have dabbled in over the years. As a DJ in a multi-cultural area like Southern California, I NEED to be able to play to a world demographic. I pride myself in using my art to build bridges and having fun with others. If you want a DJ with experience, extensive music knowledge, attention to detail, is genuine, and can execute a perfect event, I am your DJ.

DJ Larry is the best! Very accommodating and helpful. He was provided to us by our wedding venue, The Vintage Rose, and so we booked our appointment and met with him. The list of music we had and suggestions he gave altogether made our playlist for the evening. We gave him an idea of what we wanted to hear and he basically filled in the blank for us on songs we didn't know what to play and for when. My guests were extremely happy to hear throwback songs of rnb and hip hop (early 2000s). One even asked if they could get the playlist we provided but all the credit goes to DJ Larry! He's a musical genius! Thank you so much Larry for making our wedding night unforgettable!

Larry is the man you want as your DJ! We met beforehand to solidify exactly what we wanted from pre-ceremony to the last song of the reception. (He had great suggestions when we didn't know what we wanted too.) And when we showed up on our wedding day, we never had to think twice about anything!! And on such a crazy and special day, that's exactly what we wanted. Everything went smooth as silk because he's a real professional. But he's also a great MC! And even when I threw in some ad lib moments, he was right there with me! AND the dance floor was jumping with our guests the whole time!! I even asked him to play some obscure songs and he knew them! If you want your wedding in good hands, this is your guy!!

We used Fly By Night for our wedding in May and had Larry as our Master of ceremonies, and needless to say, we couldn’t be happier with the memories that he helped shape. He got everyone on the dance floor. Larry even played our special request music of Hanson, to which he was sure it would flop, but we loved the look on his face when he was taking video to show the other DJs of FBN that yes, people still do dance to Hanson at weddings. Larry took an interest to get to know us as a couple and helped form a playlist to keep our guests grooving on the dance floor all night long.
We absolutely recommend Fly by Night Djs (especially Larry) to enhance your event, whether it be your wedding or party. They’ll make everyone leave with smiles and make your event that much more memorable.

Larry was the best DJ we could have asked for. He came highly recommended by the Vintage Rose and we could definitely see why. He knew all of his music very well, he was such a pleasure to work with, he was attentive and kind- a true professional! He had two consultations with us over facetime before the wedding to refine what kind of a DJ personality and music we were looking for, and delivered the day of. I think a good DJ is like a good soccer goalie. When they're doing their job right, no one notices but when they mess up, all eyes are on them. Larry came and went and brought the soundtrack to our wedding to life without calling any attention to himself. What a lovely man. Thank you Larry, from the bottom of our hearts!!

Our DJ, Larry was awesome! He works closely with the Vintage Rose so the timing of all of our music was perfectly executed with the timeline of our wedding. From the initial consultation to the last song of our wedding, Larry was on point through it all! Any special requests we had, he made sure it was included. The whole night he kept the dance floor full. My uncles are DJ's and I wanted to make sure they enjoyed my wedding without having to worry about playing music for us. I'm soooo happy, Larry was even able to get my uncles to dance and have a good time! They commented on how good Larry mixed a couple of songs they didn't think were mixable 🙂 Thank you again, Larry and The Vintage Rose!

Larry is an awesome dj! He was very helpful when we couldn’t decide on a song and gave us amazing alternatives. He is also very easy to get a long with and made my night feel very special!
Andrew & Johanna Weil, Vintage Rose wedding 3/2/2018
Larry came highly recommended, and was great to work with from the planning stages right up to our wedding day. He was professional, friendly, and detail-oriented. Larry played the music we loved, and kept things lively on the dance floor. He worked seemlesly with our wedding coordinator to make introductions and announcements so our reception finished on time. We are grateful to Larry for his great DJ skills, and recoomned him without reservation!
