Welcome to the page for DJ Barakade ~ Your Wedding / Event DJ & MC


My name is Rob and I have a strong passion for music and for working with people to help make your celebrations fun & exciting. I take special care with my Wedding DJ Clients to customize your celebration with your preferences. For one of the biggest and most important days in life, I am always happy to make suggestions based on my experience. Your DJ/Emcee plays a strong and important role in a beautiful celebration, by maintaining the flow of events, smoothly transitioning playlists and dance mixes, and pumping the dance floor with fun energy.
