The Groove

With many DJ services, you’ll find part time DJs with less experience, training, and little or no investment in the equipment and music they are using. They won’t feel the same sense of ownership that we do with your event. We feel more like we are invited to our events, versus hired to be there.

You will never be surprised by The Groove DJ who shows up to your party since you will have met with them multiple times throughout the planning stages. We do everything in our power to make sure you and your guests are happy.

We have back up DJs in case of an emergency and back up equipment is always on hand. The Groove staff is comprised of fun, experienced DJs who share a common belief of what our role is on your day.

We care as much about the success of your event as you do, not only because we love to make our clients happy, but we strive for your referrals as well. Each and every show is important to us. We truly believe we are only as good as our last performance, so we will do everything we can make your day awesome!

Hopefully we will have the chance to talk further with you about your special day and work together to make it great!

Meet our D.J.s Andy, Tim, and Mike below.

Andy Hagenah

Andy has owned and operated The Groove for over 30 years. He grew up in Minnesota and moved to San Diego in 1999 where he met and married his wife Amy. They have three beautiful children and Andy loves the fact that his profession allows him to spend so much time with his kids.

Andy has an excellent skill for motivating people and entertaining crowds without being obnoxious or acting like the “Cheesy DJ” many people associate mobile disc jockeys as being. Andy believes that being himself and blending in, rather than trying to put on an act and be the star of the show, is one of the secrets to his success.

The music knowledge, experience, and people skills that Andy has, makes him the perfect choice for your next event. He is very trustworthy, reliable, and you will feel like you have hired a friend when you choose to work with Andy.

Tim English

Tim has been providing clients with expert DJ service for over 30 years as well. His vast knowledge of music and warm, friendly personality are a perfect fit for any type of event you might be planning.

Tim has been happily married to his wife Laura since 1998, and he is the proud father of two beautiful girls. Being a family man helps Tim to understand all the feelings that surround your special event.

Tim knows that your wedding day, anniversary party, or corporate event is special and unique, and he devotes himself to making it a terrific memory for everyone who attends. Tim’s friendliness and experience are just two great reasons why he should be a part of your next event.

Mike Farmer

Mike is pretty much a native San Diegan. Being in a Navy family meant moving around a bit, but he was lucky enough to end up San Diego. He now lives in the East County with his bride of 25 years and high school sweetheart, Suzie.

Mike got his start in the DJ biz spinning in various clubs around town. He began getting requests to do private events and his mobile DJ career was off and running. He’s run his own business for many years and was excited to join Andy with The Groove a few years ago.

Mike has done over a thousand weddings and many hundreds of corporate events and private parties. Working with the client to get the music, announcements and scheduling just right is a big part of what Mike does – but keeping the dance floor full is the best and most fun part of his job.

Mike has tons of 5 star reviews and would look forward to the opportunity to bring that level of expertise to your event.
