Looking for a laid-back DJ

Hi LA knotties,

I've found some great recommendations on this board for all sorts of vendors, but I have a specific request.  My FI has very strong feelings about the DJ at our reception -- he wants to have a friend MC and doesn't like the idea of the DJ being very involved in terms of making announcements and interacting with the crowd.  He says he doesn't want "a stranger" introducing us, etc.  On the other hand, we want people to dance!  I know that lots of DJs pride themselves on their ability to interact with guests and be involved, and I'd personally be okay with that, but for the sake of my FI I'm thinking I should ask around to see if anyone has been in a similar position and if they've worked with anyone who was good at keeping the dance floor full but wasn't necessarily on the mic very much.

Any recs?  Thanks in advance!

    I have just the one for you:  Eric with Socal- DJ.  www.socal-dj.com.  He did my sister's wedding and he didn't speak much, but kept the dance floor packed.  HTH!

    We are using so cal photo lounge with the dj. He has two people. one is a dj and one is an mc. the mc was told to just do the simple annocements not interaction with the guests and although he wont be there doing much we wanted to make sure when announcements were made that everyone could understand him.

    I used Music by Request and had DJ Lou. He was great. Played all the music I wanted. They really listen to what you need budget wise and your requests. Highly recommend the company!
