There are truly no words to express how AMAZING of a DJ Darren was at our wedding. From the first time we met and received our workbooks (to help organize our vision for the day) to our last dance at our wedding reception, Darren was absolutely reliable, organized, & professional. Our day went exactly how we dreamed of and Darren made it all possible. He not only provided music entertainment, but his organization of the whole night was absolutely amazing. He was a DJ and wedding coordinator all in one! We did not have to worry about a thing! The night could not have gone more smoothly! We also used the photo booth and our guests LOVED it!! So many fun props and awesome layouts to choose from! It was definitely a hit! We give Temporary Tempo five stars in every category possible and highly recommend their services!!

Darren rocked our wedding and was the most prepared and professional person to work with throughout the entire process. His equipment, including the up-lighting, photo booth, ceremony audio and image projector were top notch and our guests had nothing but compliments. The best compliment that could be paid was from our wedding coordinator at the winery. She told us the next day that the staff working the wedding commented numerous times about how Darren had to be put on the short list for the “venue-suggested” vendors. He kept the ball rolling and the timeline on point and that made everyone’s night more relaxing.


Temporary Tempo did an outstanding job at my fathers 90th birthday. From music to DJ and help manage the entire event. None of us had any experience at the DJ selection or any other part of a special event at an outside facility. We took a leap with Darren based on other feedback and his website and it was a 15 on a scale of 1 to 10. He is very skilled at knowing when to step in and help (reads the group well). A man of tremendous integrity and polish. He made the party!

Our winter semi formal dance was a huge success because of Darren, his attention to detail and his awesome playlist. The kids were so impressed with his easy manner and the fact that he had every song imaginable! I was impressed that every song was middle school appropriate, that Darren was professional, and that his lighting really added to our under the sea theme. Our dance was a hit, and I won’t consider anyone else for our next dance event.

Darren is by far the best dj I have ever had the pleasure of being entertained by.

He is extremely reasonable for the service he provides.

Temporary Tempo is a great DJ for your event in Riverside and Orange County

He has an extensive music collection, his lighting is terrific it completely set the scene for the event we had & best of all he is sooo personable!

Darren is charming, funny, sweet, & most of all professional.

I will hire him for any upcoming event & completely recommend him to host anyone’s event.

Thank you Darren!!!


My wife Jessica and I cannot say enough about DJ Darren and Temporary Tempo. Darren made our wedding flow so smoothly and almost exclusively took wedding day coordination into his own hands. He played every song we wanted to hear and was extremely mindful about the requests he took from our guests. If it wasn’t for Darren’s positive and confident attitude, our day would have been much more stressful.  The Photo Booth was fantastic and our guests loved it.   We are still laughing at all the crazy pictures!  Thanks again for everything you did for us on our big day!!!!

Darren & Claudia are the only DJs that my (now) husband and I met with before our wedding. I had messaged several others with a few questions, and I just loved that Darren messaged me back in a timely manor, and that he actually wanted to meet us before trying to jump the gun & book him. We knew that we wanted to book with them before even leaving the first meeting. They really had some GREAT knowledge and answered questions that we didn’t even know we had. Being that neither of us have been married before, we really had no clue how huge of a role the DJ plays, and how much they are involved in. They gave us a book with homework & suggestions in it that really helped map out our entire wedding. Everything went so smooth, the night was beautiful & Darren really delivered on EVERYTHING! They also did the sound for our ceremony & the lighting at night, and I could not have pictured it turning out any better!

Thank you so much Darren & Claudia for being a part of our special day!

I just wanted to express how much we enjoyed having you as our wedding DJ. From our first meeting at Starbucks, Tylar and I knew we wanted to hire you.

Finding the right DJ was one of the most important decisions while planning our wedding. We wanted someone that would keep the party going and running smoothly. Your expertise really showed when helping us organize and plan our special day. The music selection you provided was beyond extensive. You did exactly what we wanted and made our wedding the event of the century. All of our guest raved about the music, lighting, and announcements and the fact that they didn’t want it to end. We have been spoiled with an incredible DJ and now compare everyone to you. Thank you so much.

Darren is an awesome DJ. The first time we met he was very professional and organized he had a packet put together which was very helpful. It included helpful song selections for the different dances and a basic layout of how a wedding could go. He definitely knows how to read a crowd and keeps then on their feet dancing.  Adding the photo booth was a fantastic suggestion.  All our guests had a blast and the photos were unbelievable!  If your looking for a wedding entertainment company , look no further than Temporary Tempo!

Very highly recommended! DJ Darren with Temporary Tempo is very professional. Our daughter’s debut party was a great success. He did a good job from being an emcee, up lighting and of course the music! The music videos were a great treat, the teenagers loved them. All the guests were having such a fantastic time that we had him stay an extra hour! Thank you and more power to you!!!

There are so many AMAZING things I can say about Darren and his Temporary Tempo Team. Darren, Claudia, and Bradley were nothing short of amazing! From the first time we met with Darren and he sent us home with a work book, I knew he was going to do everything in his power to be sure our day was flawless! That is exactly what he did! He not only provided music for our big day, he helped organize and execute the timeline for the entire evening! We also used the photo booth which was a huge hit! Claudia and Bradley did an awesome job and our guests loved it! The book they made for us is priceless. Sam and I are forever grateful for Darren and his team! We would highly recommend their services.

Darren was the DJ for out son’s wedding and we can’t say enough great things about him. From our first contact, we knew he was the right choice for us. He was patient, professional, answered all of our questions, and he was never pushy. Throughout the planning of the wedding, Darren kept in contact with us, and he made sure all the details were being covered. Music is super important, and Darren has an unbelievable collection. However, music isn’t the only task the DJ has to be concerned with and Darren realizes this. We had real peace of mind knowing that Darren would take care of not only the music, but he’d make sure the night ran smooth.

On the day of the wedding, Darren exceeded our expectations. He made sure the party was fun and we got in everything we wanted. For anyone planning an event where you want a DJ, we highly recommend Temporary Tempo.

I hired Temporary Tempo for a very special event, my parents 50th wedding anniversary. While I expected great music, I got even more!

My DJ arrived early and had everything set-up well before our first guests arrived. He transformed the simple banquet room at Soboba Country Club into an elegant venue with spectacular lighting. Once all the guests all arrived our DJ made sure the entire evening went smoothly by coordinating with the facility and the caterer.

I didn’t realize how important hiring an expert DJ was. I was able to enjoy the evening with my parents and not worry about coordinating the party.

Do youself a favor, hire Temporary Tempo for your next event and relax knowi

Darren at Temporary Tempo is AWESOME! I had so many compliments after our reception of how great of a time they had dancing to the music he played and how fun the games were. I was really worried because our guests’ age ranges were so wide, and how could we make sure everyone had a good time. I’m here to tell you, Darren was able to handle this seamlessly. It took so much pressure off of my shoulders. I can’t say enough good things about his work. He was professional all the way from the first meeting to the final dance. If you’re looking for a top notch classy professional DJ who really knows how to keep the party hopping, hire him. You WON’T be disappointed.
