Jacey Talbert Office Coordinator Assistant

Jacey Talbert


For as long as she can remember, Jacey Talbert has been drawing and creating artwork. She is currently in charge of launching a brand-new clothing line for Dax Entertainment. (Stay tuned!) “I love the challenge of making the perfect piece of art,” Jacey says. “One of my favorite pieces is a side portrait of Gwen Stefani—very light, simple and elegant.” Jacey is proud to be a volunteer for Muttopia, a rescue/rehabilitation facility that provides a place for rescued dogs to recover medically and emotionally prior to adoption. When she’s not working with dogs or designing t-shirts for Dax Entertainment, Jacey enjoys camping, fishing, and taking walks at Spring Lake and Bodega Bay.


Dustin Engel DJ

Dustin Engel


Dustin Engel plays a core role on our professional DJ team. As an avid fan of electronic dance music, he started experimenting with soundscapes and production while still in high school. "I started producing music during my junior year," says the Santa Rosa resident. "After seeing a few professional DJs live, and seeing how amazing of a show they were able to put on, I decided that I wanted to do it myself." Dustin's dedication to perfecting his craft makes sense when you take into account his other life successes: He's a black belt in Taekwondo and an Eagle Scout.

A big fan of up-tempo and energetic music, Dustin wants every client to have the perfect, individualized party and event experience. His detailed mastery of Dax Entertainment’s extensive music library ensures a multitude of song choices covering every possible taste.

"I want the client to feel confident and secure when having me as the DJ," says Dustin. "When running an event, there are a lot of important things going on, so it is important to have a DJ that knows what they are doing."

Dray Lopez DJ

Dray Lopez

With a successful career in radio, Dray Lopez brings to Dax Entertainment over 25 years of experience as a DJ and music aficianado. “It’s hard to be a great DJ,” says Dray. “You need to know multiple genres of music: different decades, different artists—essentially be an encyclopedia of ‘hit music.’ You need to know how to mix and manipulate the music in different situations to keep the most people on the dancefloor.” Dray is known for his personable style and ability to take requests and ensure the crowd is having the time of their lives.

When he’s not DJ’ing a wedding or acting as MC for a special event, Dray works at Wine Country Radio and hopes to move into an active role overseeing programming for a number of radio stations. Dray at one time was a break dancer and was “pretty good” at it, but now he’s more likely to spend his free time finding a pool or river to swim in or enjoying the company of his three beautiful nieces.

Fabian Vera DJ

Fabian Vera

Fabian Vera is most proud of two things: His kids and his long-standing career as a DJ. The father of two has been DJing for three decades, since before his kids were born. Hours and hours at the music controls have given Fabian a smooth confidence and the ability to navigate any party situation. "I don't get flustered easily," says Fabian. "Being able to think quickly, and make the best of any situation without skipping a beat, is essential. When it comes to a wedding, you only have one chance to get it right." Fabian's professionalism has left many a guest still talking about the fun they had at Dax Entertainment events weeks later.

Known for his friendly and easy manner, Fabian's DJ style can be described as open format, meaning he loves to read the crowd and get people to dance (Grandma and Grandpa included!) by playing a variety of music.

"Everyone has access to the same music via the internet," says Fabian. "What separates me is how I play songs and the timing of when the song is played. This goes back to being able to read the crowd." Rest assured, at your next event, Fabian will make sure everything runs exactly the way it should - so you can enjoy yourself and have a fantastic time (on the dance floor, of course).

Luis Burgos DJ

Luis Burgos never set out to be a big-time DJ, but for the past two decades he has carefully honed his craft, and his love for music has never waned. “My favorite quote is ‘House music is a feeling: the music is the teacher, the DJ is the preacher.’ Music brings out so much emotion that if done right it can take you on a journey through time.” Whether Luis is playing a party for a middle school, a 50th birthday party, a retirement party, or a night club, for him it’s always about the music.

Luis also enjoys spending time with his two sons, whether it’s woodworking together or playing basketball—in addition to his 2nd Grade teaching position at West Marin School. Just don’t get your Mr. Spock mixed up with your Han Solo: Luis’ both a huge Star Wars and Star Trek fan. Engage!

Marco Delgado DJ

Marco Delgado, a.k.a. DJ MD, brings a life-long dedication to providing great service to clients as a DJ for Dax Entertainment.

Having lived in Windsor for most of his life, working in customer service roles for a variety of local businesses and community organizations, Marco brings that same care and dedication, as well as his laid-back, humorous and thoughtful demeanor to his DJ events. “It’s important to listen and keep an open mind, especially when you’re working with so many different personalities,” says Marco. “My goal is to make sure all the guests are satisfied, that the client knows I am there for them, and that we communicate clearly.”

Even though DJ technology has changed—from his first pair of turntables he bought in 2002 to the Serato-based system he uses today—what hasn’t changed is Marco’s love of music. As a kid he used to sit next to his brother’s radio and wait for the live DJs to start a mix, then he would record one right after another on his tape recorder with no pause – good practice for his future profession! Today Marco DJs at events large and small, at times alongside one of our other team members such as DJ Willie G.

When Marco’s not working with Dax Entertainment, he enjoys time with his family of four and watching Dirt Every Day, an awesome off-road show on Netflix®.

Sound Technicians

Evan Alexander Sound Technician

Evan Alexander Portrait


A long way from his hometown of Poughkeepsie, New York, Evan is now a California local and a major part of our event production team. He has been a sound engineer and production manager for over 19 years at many top venues, assisting such acts as Foghat, Blue Oyster Cult, The Tubes, and Puddle of Mud. Always striving for perfection, he was once goalie for an ice hokey team that went undefeated for an entire season. “The most important thing I can bring to an event is a high standard of professionalism and attention to detail,” says Evan. “I love the excitement and anticipation that builds as show time approaches, as well as watching people enjoy themselves throughout the entire event.” When he’s not at the mixer tweaking EQ or running mic cables, Evan is enjoying time with his wife, two children, three dogs, and one cat.

Sam Hurley Sound Technician

Sam Hurley

At a young age, Sam has accomplished so much. He's certified in Pro Tools, Yamaha consoles, Dante audio networks, and that's just the start. He's worked at Prairie Sun Live, Lincoln Theater, House of Rock…and the list goes on. It's no surprise Sam's friends know him as outgoing and driven, a result of his early initiation into the world of performing and events by his influential father, a drummer.

“It's very important to me that I'm constantly adapting to the needs of the client,” explains Sam, “and that I stay away from the mentality of the ‘grumpy’ sound guy. My goal is to do everything with a big smile that they and I will never forget.” When asked what's the most important thing he's learned while working in the Pro Audio industry, Sam quipped: “The more you think you know, the more you need to know!”

Cast and Crew

Jackson Demorest Technician Assistant

Jackson Demorest

One of our youngest team members, Jackson Demorest is a hard-working honor student and martial artist, and was an instrumental part of the launch of Laser Tag of Santa Rosa. As part of Dax Entertainment’s special events crew, Jackson assists with setup and breakdown at events. When he’s not on the job with Dax Entertainment, you’ll find him working on Photoshop projects, watching The Office or eating chocolate cake—perhaps all at the same time!

“I think my friends would think of me as an outgoing, funny dude,” says Jackson. “It’s great being a part of the team, and I love the crazy special effects at the events – especially the CO2 cryo jets! Hands down, his favorite events are high school proms because of their amazing energy.” And, if anyone knows about amazing energy, it’s Jackson. When he’s not installing lighting, attending to special effects or running electric and audio cables, he’s out dancing with the crowd!

Natalie Wright Emcee

Natalie Wright


Santa Rosa-native Natalie Wright grew up with teachers sending notes home to her parents which said she talked too much in class. She took this “flaw” and made a career out of it! Case in point: Natalie's worked in radio locally for over 20 years and done shows remotely for stations across the country, as well as voice-overs for various businesses and radio stations.

Her favorite interview? “Oh, it was the one with Jason Mraz. He was so funny!” Least favorite would be Nick Carter. “He was sick as heck and kept coughing and being all mucus-y during the interview. It was…kinda gross.”

Thankfully, Natalie is able leave the studio from time to time and enjoy such pastimes as taking jazz and modern dance classes, volunteering with her daughters’ Girl Scout Troop, laundry (yes, she actually LIKES doing laundry), going to Disneyland (her happy place), and sampling good craft beer. Mmmm…
