David and KellieDavid Van Rixel is the owner and spirit behind Van Rixel Productions. Having DJ’d in Madison for many years, he realized he needed to bring his love for performing back to his hometown of Milwaukee. Van Rixel had performed for many different theater venues and eventually realized his success of combining music, celebrations and his personality to make for successful productions.

With a theater degree and years of DJ experience, Van Rixel puts his professionalism, passion and creativity into every event. With so many generic DJ companies, Van Rixel wanted his clients to understand they are getting a custom designed event, not just a cookie cutter DJ. There is a difference between a DJ and an event professional. Van Rixel would like to show you why he and his company would be honored to be a part of your special day.

Van Rixel Productions provides a guarantee of satisfaction and these comments were written immediately following the wedding or in a thank you note sent to our office.
