Our Emcee

David Krieger is an award-winning DJ and producer. His career began over 15 years ago working as a radio DJ in Philadelphia and MTV VJ in New York. After receiving a Broadcasting degree from Temple University, Krieger moved to Los Angeles, DJing scores of milestone celebrations and events annually, including holding residencies at The W, The Standard, The London, The Sunset Room in Hollywood, and the HP Lounge of Coachella 2019, though he is best known for being named “Best DJ in Los Angeles” of 2018, 2019, and 2020 by California Wedding Day Magazine. Krieger serves on the Board of Directors for the Weddings International Professional Association (WIPA), and has won the WIPA “DJ of Excellence Award” twice. In 2021, Krieger expanded his business to be bicoastal and established a new home-base in Atlanta.

With a style best described as “malleable,” Krieger has a unique approach to DJing, due to his uncommon background in live radio and TV. He believes the best events happen organically, with one chapter flowing seamlessly into the next. Krieger’s breadth of experience has brought him an incomparable intuition and ability to read a room, and he relies on these skills when choosing music and mixing songs, avoiding tired, over-played tracks, to make your event exceptionally memorable.

In his spare time, Krieger enjoys camping, astrophotography, playing the saxophone, and chess.
