Sachiko & Nate: 5 out of 5 stars on!

Nathan was our wedding DJ and dance instructor for our very recent wedding in November and we still can’t get over how fun the wedding and our first dance routine were!!

I think I did a google search for swing DJs in san francisco and found Nathan on his Swing or Nothing web page… didn’t know what to expect as he was not referred to us or anything but I thought, ‘why not?’ We weren’t even sure we wanted swing but after meeting Nathan and getting our first lesson– we felt assured we were doing the right thing right away.

Nathan is very professional, an excellent instructor with great style and structure who has a vision and knows his stuff… we got many many compliments on the swing theme and we have Nathan to thank for it.

We would do it all over again in a heart beat! We highly recommend nathan whether it’s to DJ some swing music or if it’s a dance lesson.

Jeremy Sutton: 5 out of 5 stars on!

I hired Nathan (DJ NateDiggity) for my Move to the Groove party at Cafe Cocomo and he exceeded all my expectations. He was the perfect DJ for the party! Not only did he run with my concept of mixing in a very diverse range of music (swing, salsa, soul, motown, funk, disco, tango, bangra, world, ’50s rock n roll, blues, etc etc) and blended the genres seamlessly, he was also very personable, professional and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Nathan for any DJing. I am happy to be a reference if you wish to contact me. Thanks Nathan for a job well done!

Claudine & Danny: 5 out of 5 stars on!

I was already slightly acquainted with Nathan through the very large swing dance community (of which I was a part for many many years) before we took him on for private swing dance/ lindy lessons. We had taken a couple of his group classes before at the Savanna Jazz Club, where my friend, Catrine Ljunggren, runs a regular Wednesday night dance event.

Nathan is awesome. He’s a great dancer and teacher, and was very patient with us as we went through our sessions prior to the wedding. He has a great eye for examining movement and demonstrating what could be done better or differently; and even drew up lists of moves for us to aid our rather shaky memories…. I highly recommend taking his group classes, or hiring him for private lessons if you wish to swing dance at your wedding. His rates are very reasonable, and he has ample room in his home for a couple so you don’t have to pay for additional studio space.
