Mark Welch


Hello my name is Mark Welch and I am the owner of MWE. I have worked as an Emcee/DJ since 1993 here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have provided Entertainment for hundreds of weddings, parties and events.

From the moment your guests arrive until the last dance, I will see to your every need. I will take care of all the announcements to inform your guests.

I will provide an upbeat atmosphere by playing a variety of music from the 40’s to today’s current hits. I bring 50,000 of the top songs to choose from that are all clean edit.

As an Event Director, I will put together a time-line and coordinate with the venue and all your vendors, so we are all working together on the day of your wedding, party or event to guarantee it to be a success.

I would love to meet with you to go over your plans and make sure I am the right fit for you.

"Mark, is AMAZING!!! I mean amazing. When picking a DJ I really think of it as picking an organizer, manager, emcee, and time magician. It is SO MUCH MORE then music. So much more and Mark delivered. Heck, he took charge of stuff we didn't even know we needed help with.

First let me say, he gave us peace of mind. So many vendors you work with need time lines, answers, info and Mark helped us to create the schedule and flow of the day. He then made a schedule and communicated with other vendors. I mean he knew answers before I had the questions. Once we met with him I felt a huge burden lifted from my shoulders. He has done so many weddings, he know whats next way before you do. That being said, with his online music election and questions it allows him the tools to tailor your wedding so it truly represents you.

Our music ran from Beatles, to punk, to the Saints Go Marching In...and he got in all in seamlessly. We had opted to have a "song request" in our RSVP. I wasn't sure if this would be a burden to Mark but it actually worked great. He gives you access to an online profile where you answer questions and select your music. Within that there is a notes section. I simply added the note for each person and their request. What was great was then he mentioned the person's name and that just made everyone feel like part of the festivities plus made them get up and dance when there song was on.

He also managed the day for us and never made us feel rushed or pressured. Behind the scenes he organized the time and cheerily asked us if it was fine. I loved it! We just felt like we could decide in the moment, for example what time we really wanted to leave, dance, etc.
He is the #1 choice!

Mark is amazing, it felt like I didn't have to think on the day of my wedding because he was executing our vision so we could just enjoy
Best DJ EVER!"

​We had Mark Welch as the DJ/MC at our wedding and he went above and beyond our expectations! He basically ran the entire wedding along with my wedding coordinators and made sure it went smoothly. The planning process was very helpful with the company's online form to fill out all of the wedding information and songs desired. Mark even put together a timeline for us which helped a ton! Music was great and we had so much fun with Mark as our DJ!

Mark was awesome! We had a lot of specific wishes in terms of music and Mark not only incorporated what we wanted, but I think he improved on our ideas by putting it all together. He did a great job with timing and flow. But the real proof was on the dance floor when I looked around and saw how much fun everyone was having. I definitely recommend Mark for your event.

​Mark was a pleasure to work with for our wedding. The online tools were comprehensive, and helped us template and tailor the overall flow of the event, turning the vague notion of a ceremony and a meal into a real party to remember! He was flexible in meeting with us beforehand to go through all the details, and we were able to get all the planning done over Skype. He worked with our wedding coordinator and photographer to make the event a smooth success. He also did a great job reading the mood of the crowd and tailoring the playlist appropriately. His rates were very reasonable, and we would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an event host!

Mark was our DJ & MC for our wedding at Wildwood Acres on 8/22/15. He is upbeat, easy to work with, and a master coordinator. Highlights:

- online planning tool to create wedding timeline and choose songs for ceremony and reception
- flexible : met with us a couple of times after work to discuss a plan and provided a quick rehearsal right before our ceremony
- kept our timeline on track & and our guests flowing 
- clearly enjoys what he does and has fun doing it

We met Mark when we had no idea what having a wedding entailed. By the day of, we had all of the details down and were able to drink, dance, enjoy the party.

"We used MWE for our wedding ceremony and reception at Heather Farms Gardens. Mark met with us prior to our event on two separate occasions to discuss what our expectations were and to help pick an appropriate variety of songs for all of the different components.  We would hire Mark again in a heartbeat.  He was professional, in-tune with our crowd (which spanned several generations), and allowed our entire wedding to run smoothly and according to the time line we laid out.  In addition to playing a wide variety of music, Mark managed the events of our wedding very well, providing music for our cocktail hour as well as for our reception and effectively cuing our various events, such as the announcements, toasts, cake cutting, tosses, etc.  Mark was an exceptional value for the price he charged and we would recommend his company to anyone hosting a wedding."

Mark just did my wedding August 7, 2015 at Wildwood Acres and he was great! He moved things along seamlessly and his attitude is really what impressed me and what I appreciated during the rehearsal and day-of.
Mark is very nice, positive, and energetic. He mingled with some of my guests, checked in on me to see if I needed a drink during the wedding, and let me know when things were coming up such as the first dance, etc.
Such an organized DJ and Master of Ceremony was the best thing to have, I was so glad to have him there for my rehearsal since I have been to few weddings!!! I would recommend Mark to everyone!
