DJ Dave Gillis is your best source for premium entertainment in Northern California. For over 20 years, DJ Dave has performed at Weddings, Corporate Events, Private Parties, Nightclubs, Concerts, and Holiday Parties.

Since the age of 10, Dave Gillis has been pursuing his passion as a DJ, always playing with radio stations or playing records for friends and family who came over to visit. When Dave wasn’t playing out parties while attending boarding school out in the east coast, he was sneaking off campus to New York City to see legendary DJs play at underground nightclubs, or loft parties on Manhattan’s lower east side, or going on local pirate radio stations. This is when Dave got a taste of what he considers his ‘true calling’ – playing music and entertaining the masses. Honing his skills at various clubs in St. Louis and Los Angeles, he moved to San Jose in 1996 after graduating from college, and immediately took up residency at San Jose's top dance club, The Agenda Lounge.

In 1997, Dave got his big break when the resident DJ at the Starlight Room in San Francisco needed a sub for the night. Since answering 'the call', Dave has been performing there ever since, and since his arrival, the Starlight Room has consistently been rated as the number one nightclub in San Francisco. Starting in 2001, Dave has served as the full-time resident DJ, featured every Tuesday through Saturday, playing all the great hits from the 1970's to today's Top 40 hits. Truly a San Francisco favorite!

Dave’s infectious personality and flawless mixing style makes him easy to spot. His music reflects the emotional connection that he has with his audience. Dave’s smooth mixing skills, natural presence and command of a wide range of music styles make him a great choice for any party. His passion for music and entertainment keeps him hard at work, which includes performing at weddings, corporate events, private functions, or creating original songs.

After leading a successful career in graphic design and project management for several Fortune 500 companies (including Sony, KPMG and RS Investments), Dave re-directed his talents to his own true calling – entertainment. It is no surprise to anyone that Dave Gillis has established himself as one of San Francisco's favorite DJ and is definitely one of the best to come out of the San Francisco music scene. His performance is simply amazing!
