Based in Temecula, California, Temecula’s Best DJ aka: “DJ-DJ” (Dennis John Barela) specializes in weddings (ceremony and reception), corporate and private event music services, “live” acoustic guitar for weddings (with or without vocals), event lighting and “uplighting.”  I am conveniently located in the Temecula Valley winery, estate, wedding and vineyard areas of Riverside County and provide service to all of Southern California including the Inland Empire, San Bernardino County, North County, San Diego County and Orange County.  Unlike many DJs who claim to be in Temecula, I live, work and am based in the city of Temecula, California.  With over 25 years of experience in the entertainment industry, I provide “Mobile DJ,” “Lighting,” “live acoustic guitar,” “studio recording and music editing services,” Emcee and master of ceremonies services,” and “sound reinforcement services.”  My experience surpasses the abilities of 99% of the DJs in the industry.

About:  No other DJ service on the west coast can offer a service that can match my vast knowledge and experience with state-of-the-art professional audio equipment and leading industry technology.  Temecula’s Best DJ aka: “A Perfect DJ,” “53XYDJ,” “R★CK DJ” and “DJ-DJ” has personally and literally performed thousands of successful events to his acclaim (not just employees or affiliates as other companies claim).


These qualifications, together with experience as a seasoned professional band leader, vocalist and musician (playing Hollywood nightclubs and touring the entire SouthWest United States by age 17), concert promoter, stage manager, instrumental and vocal music educator, composer, voice-over artist, recording engineer and producer attribute to deliver a service that is “second-to-none” within the industry.   No other DJ in the region can boast that they have shared both stage and studio with many top industry recording artists and Grammy Award winners.

With this kind of experience and technical know-how, you and your guests are assured a successful event with professional qualities only aspired by our competitors.  Find out why Temecula’s Best DJ has been the entertainment industry’s choice when requiring a DJ for their important events.


Weddings are an important, once-in-a-lifetime event of the highest celebration and no room for errors as there are no “do-overs.”  On this special day it is crucial that a wedding DJ provide ample entertainment to add to the experience, celebration and joy of the day.   I create the wedding moments that will last a lifetime.  Your wedding (and your investment in it) deserve professionalism, experience and respect.


Temecula’s Best DJ excels in both private and corporate parties as well.  I can help to make your special private or corporate event a success.  Let me help make your function less stressful, more productive and create memories that will last a lifetime.   Whatever your DJ needs, Temecula’s Best DJ can provide you with the music solutions and selections for any occasion or situation.  Temecula’s Best DJ is a mobile DJ service that can provide your wedding or event with reliable music services in a professional, efficient manner.




Temecula’s Best DJ is recommended by many of Temecula’s premier wineries, event planners, wedding coordinators, party rental suppliers and event locations.

Remember: If your decision to purchase DJ Services is based solely upon price, you have the investment of your entire wedding or event to lose by not hiring a professional!  A good DJ keeps your guests at your event all night long to maximize your overall investment.

♦♦♦ Topic of the month ♦♦♦

“Licensed DJs”

Recently I have been inundated with requests from potential customers who say that they are comparing me with “licensed DJs.”  Let it be known that there is no such thing as a “licensed DJ.”

This is, yet again, more propaganda that is being spread by the “Ameri-con DJ Association” (name altered for legal reasons; also known as “A.D.J.*.”).  Truth be told, there is no licensing bureau, no oversight committee and no governing agency.  The only licenses required to do business as a DJ are:

      • City required business license

      • The use of Licensed music (Copyright law, i.e.: “paid-for music” as opposed to illegally obtained/pirated music)

…these traits themselves lend absolutely no credibility to inferring that a person is a “fair,” “good,” “great,” or even remotely qualified DJ.  When a DJ is using the term of “licensed DJ” they are only trying to “distract you” and misrepresent themselves in an attempt to get you to sign their contract.  These are disturbing trends indeed.

(It should be noted that it is actually quite humorous to go to the “pro audio” section at Guitar Center and see the oblivious looks on the faces of amateur DJs and listen to them ask extremely elementary questions from the staff.  These persons usually just buy what the salesperson tells them to buy.  I often feel that the salespeople see many of these DJs as “easy sales” and “suckers” due to their lack of knowledge and education.)

This is one of the downfalls for the consumer when hiring a DJ.  The fact is that well over over 50% of DJs are part-time DJs.  That being said, they do not have the time to commit in preparing your file, continual updating of music library, maintaining equipment, following industry trends and/or further seeking continuing education for themselves as a professional in the DJ and entertainment industries.

It is commonly known that much of the A.D.J.*’s revenue comes from paid sponsors and advertisers who are allowed to go to Ameri-con DJ’s monthly meetings to “pitch” their product(s) while touting them as “the best” and “must-have” items to uneducated, unwitting amateur DJs.

The “Ameri-con DJ Association” has, for many years, attempted to become the final authority in DJs.  I sincerely doubt they will do so and hope that no government agency even considers them for any oversight authority whatsoever as the Ameri-con DJ Association is notorious for having an enormous membership roster consisting of a vast majority of beginner, amateur and part-time DJs.

It cannot be stressed enough how important it is to do your research, meet with your DJ in person, check references, check experience and intelligently choose your DJ using common-sense and educated reasoning.  If anything, the display of the A.D.J.*. logo and/or the DJ touting as being a member should be a “red-flag” for consumers.
