“Music is my passion. My passion for music came from dancing which is how I got my logo ‘Make You Dance Kind-A Music,’” says Derek DePiazza of Melo-D Productions. “Keeping up with the new music and what people like to dance to is what we focus on.” Derek and April DePiazza are local to Nevada County and got their start by helping friends and family by deejaying and MCing at their events. But, they soon realized that they had a business!
Melo-D Productions has been providing its services at weddings, parties, corporate events, fundraisers, school events, and holiday parties for over 15 years now. They specialize in country weddings and can provide everything you need in music, sound, announcements (MC), and dance. This multi-faceted business also offers other services, including event planning, ceremony set up, reception set up, floating dance floor, photography services, and dance lights!
“If you like to dance and have a great time. I’m your DJ, and that’s my job whether I’m working your wedding, family reunion, an outside sales meeting, or a mixer. Give me a try and you will love the music I play!” shares Derek on Melo-D Productions’ website.
At weddings, Derek and April’s love of music shines through as they help couples celebrate their love during the ceremony and reception. They enjoy keeping people happy on the dance floor and ensuring everyone is having a great time. This positive outlook is what makes the events they work at so successful. Derek and April’s advice to couples on their big day is, “Pick your battles and don’t worry about the small stuff!”
Along the way, they have had some interesting experiences. One of their fun stories is when a couple exchanged engraved pistols instead of rings. Then, instead of putting rings on their fingers, they shot watermelon in a nearby pond!
Melo-D Productions’ clients describe them as professional, easy to work with, and fun to be around. One local couple, the Duran’s, had this to say about Melo-D Productions, “Melo-D Productions did an amazing job for our wedding. They were professional & really nice. They made our reception party fabulous, and everyone had a great time. They kept people on the dance floor all night as well as playing all our songs. Thank you, Melo-D for your service. We highly recommend them!”
Shelby, who had her wedding in October, posted this rave review: “Awesome DJ!…choosing Melo-D for our DJ was one of the best decisions we made! They kept everything moving and made sure everyone had a good time! We will definitely recommend you to anyone in the future. We couldn’t thank you enough. If ever we need a DJ, you will hear from us – Thank you guys.”
“Melo-D Productions is the best around. Derek & April did our wedding. [They were] very professional and really set the tone for one of the best days of our lives. We highly recommend Melo-D. Thanks again!” share another happy couple, the Petty’s.
