DJ Allison Peck
California native Allison Peck grew up in Thousand Oaks, CA and spent much of her teenage years going to shows at the Troubadour, Roxy and Cobalt Cafe. Allison enrolled in Cal Poly and moved to San Luis Obispo where she split her time between business school and DJing at KCPR (claim to fame: Weird Al Yankovich recorded 'My Bologna’ in the bathroom next to the station). After college Allison moved to Chicago where she began working as a wedding DJ, spinning everywhere from Wisconsin barns to fancy downtown hotels. Once ready to return to California, Allison put her business degree to use and co-founded Heart of Gold DJs.

“We had the pleasure of working with DJ Allison Peck and her assistant Stella for our June 2015 wedding. From the initial phone call to email correspondences to meeting in person, everything just felt organized, easy, and relaxed. Allison is highly professional and will go through the entire day’s events to be sure you have everything you need and she will take note of anything you definitely want or don’t want that day.
Allison served as MC during our ceremony, and made sure to gather everyone so events start in a timely manner. She went above and beyond by making sure the officiant was wired up and the groom’s father, best man, and maid of honor were ready to make their speeches. The day ran stress free for us as a couple and we were able to enjoy ourselves at our own party.
My fiancé also threw in a surprise lip sync contest that evening and Allison did a wonderful job gathering everyone together to participate and cheer for their favorite contestant. I must say that Allison has a voice that’s meant for a microphone. She puts everyone at ease while also commanding their attention. It’s not intrusive and loud like some DJs can be, but just pleasant. =) The music was great and had everyone dancing until our venue told us we had to leave.
We highly recommend Heart of Gold DJs and Allison Peck. They were a pleasure to work with and we appreciate all the work that was put in to make our day as memorable as it was! Thank you!”

"When we first found Heart of Gold DJ's, we were thrilled and when we first met with Allison we were even more thrilled. Finally, a DJ that was excited about our desire to veer away from the standard wedding cheesiness and traditional bride and groom gender roles! We met with Allison on two different occasions and each time she was extremely professional while still being super relatable and easy-going. All throughout the planning process she was quick to respond to our (many) emails. She always made us feel supported and at ease, which for a busy couple planning a wedding is a big deal. On the wedding day, Allison was an absolute dream. She was timely and professional, but more so, she added a wonderfully positive and upbeat energy to our wedding. And of course, she kept the adults (and the kids) dancing all night long. Allison helped us personalize the music and activities of our day to fit us to a tee. We cannot recommend Allison and Heart of Gold DJ's enough."
