James and Jackie gave us a night of musical magic!
When looking at vendors for our wedding, music was in the top 3 vendors that just had to be perfect! Music is one of the things my husband and I first bonded over so we had to have a great DJ w...
ith a lot of personality!
James and Jackie were professional, relaxed and very open to listening to our ideas and wants for our wedding and because music is so important to us, we had a lot of ideas :P
James has an amazing talent for placing songs in just the right areas and made seamless transition of music when the mood or feel changed. He also has big personality that made our guests talk about his work long after the wedding was over!
We are so thankful and grateful for his talent and work! If we ever were to need DJ again we would definitely use Amani Jae!

g, their energy and enthusiasm was unmatched! James did such an awesome job hitting on all of the requests and genres we wanted while also putting in some really fun remixes!! Nobody wanted to leave the dance floor at the end of the night, and I'm still getting compliments from our guests about how awesome the music was! I would recommend Amani Jae to anybody looking for DJ! They're the best!

THE BEST NIGHT EVER. As someone who works in the wedding industry I have seen some of the best weddings and some one the absolute worst all because of a DJ! Our wedding was on the best and wouldn't have been possible without Amani Jae Ent! Elli...
ot was so quick to respond, and professional on the day of all while creating the best dance party. Our music and sound was seamless and all of our guests enjoyed the experience from start to finish. Elliot sends you a form to fill out with your SO that helps pick songs for special moments during the event. Music is so important to my husband and I so while we picked certain songs for certain moments we absolutely trusted Amani Jae Ent to take control of the reception and play the best songs - we did not want the party to end!

Zero complaints. They kept everybody dancing and if there ever was a lull, they instantly knew what to do. Thank you so much for keeping us dancing all night!

Bottom line... the dance floor at our wedding was packed for over 3 hours — and that was all thanks to Amani Jae.
It was clear from the beginning of our ceremony that we were in really good hands with Amani Jae. They had two professionals on s...
ite for us — and they both kept a close eye on everything to be sure the night went smoothly. We even had a unique grand entrance to the ceremony and Amani Jae nailed it.
Some things we really appreciated:
1) On a few occasions I looked over toward the DJ booth (wanting a microphone, a song request, etc) - and it's like they had a sixth sense for what I was needing — they were right there to help. It felt so nice having people really take care of us and make sure our guests were having a good time. Their service, attitude and ability to run an effective event was superb.
2) After the event we had so many guests saying it was one of the best wedding dance floors they've ever seen. The songs seamlessly flowed from one to the next — the only reason people left the dance floor was to catch their breath or get a drink. Any fears I might have had about an empty dance floor were completely unfounded. Even the onsite wedding co-ordinator went out of her way to tell us how great our DJ was. Amani Jae killed it.
3) Lastly, I really appreciated how they listened to our musical requests and tastes. We created a Spotify playlist for Amani Jae — and they used it as a starting point... and then took it to 11. We had several songs on our list that were a little outside the box - and Amani Jae was totally game to give them a go. He basically found all our good dance songs - and then enhanced the night with others that fit our vibe and kicked it up a notch.

A Beautiful Ceremony and a Rocking Reception!
Amani really knocked it out of the park. We experienced several delays and last minute changes due to weather, family health issues etc. that brought planning down to the second. Amani really rolled...
with everything, picking up on cues and delays. The ceremony was beautiful, the music was perfectly timed and not too loud. He kept it fairly quiet during dinner but he could read the room and turned it up a bit when he saw people dancing in their seats or singing along to their favorite songs. Amani can lead line dances, MC, tell jokes, and even lead the room in singing happy birthday to my Uncle as a surprise. We had to delay the cake cutting due to a late dinner service and an impromptu speech. No one even noticed as they danced to 3 or 4 cake-related songs in a row while we figured everything out. Everyone had an amazing time and there was never a lull in the fun.

thout a hitch. James and Jackie are real professionals and experts in what they do. I am so glad we choose them. They make a great team reading the vibes of the crowd and the adjust things according to what the guest need.The time flies by and none of our party wanted to leave the dance floor. At one point in the night James came out with everyone on the dance floor and helped lead some line dancing, that really got the party extra hype! There was never a dull or slow moment. Everyone loved the mix of music and it was a PARTY ( my mother in law is very reserved and never dances, she was out there all night). My dad is a hard man to impress and he couldn't stop talking about how amazing they both were. If you want the best wedding of the year-book with Amani Jae Entertainment.

What can I say, DJ Amani Jae & Jackie are THE ABSOLUTE BEST!! My husband and I first came across Amani Jae Entertainment at a Phoenix bridal show. We saw DJ Amani Jae dancing in the middle of the aisle, getting all of the attendees pumped up an...
d excited, and we KNEW we needed to hire this team! We wanted a DJ who was involved in the party, not someone who only stood behind the DJ table and pressed play to a generic wedding playlist. Music has always been something that brings my husband and me together. We have been enjoying music together since mixed CDs were still a thing and even now, we still love to go to Old Town and dance!!
We were intrigued to learn about DJ Amani Jae's background and even more confident with our decision to hire his team when we discovered just how much music and dance identifies him as a person. Not only is he a DJ, but he is a dancer/choreographer and he produces music as well! We wish we would have had the time to choreograph a special dance at our wedding, but for anyone else interested, DJ Amani Jae was so ready to help with this!!
Once hired, we were provided with an in-depth questionnaire that goes over every little musical detail you would not have even thought of before receiving. Even though I over-thought every single song, had a million questions, sent several emails answering my own questions before they even had a chance to respond (lol sorry), and finally completed my questionnaire like a week or 2 before the wedding, they were so helpful, patient and professional. Once submitted, they basically showed up and delivered!! No more questions or anything was needed from me and I didn't have to worry about a thing other than providing the questionnaire (and payment of course ;) )
On the day of the wedding, they showed up promptly, had everything set up before I even got there and were ready to go on time. We hired them for both ceremony and reception (which were held at the same venue). While I originally wanted to hire live strings for my ceremony, I do not regret my decision to allow Amani Jae Entertainment to provide music & mic for the ceremony. I was luckily able to still find music I wanted played during the recession on youtube (strings covers) so it still had the semi-traditional feel. We had no technical issues with the microphone (I noticed this being a trend in weddings I have attended) and the music was all played correctly and at the right timing. DJ Amani Jae got the party going once it was dancing time and everyone had a great time. Jackie was amazing by helping coordinate with me and my husband to make sure we knew what was going on throughout the night and making sure we got through all of our scheduled events (cake-cutting, garter toss, etc).
Overall, we are so happy we hired Amani Jae Entertainment and we could not recommend them enough!!! THANK YOU!!!!

s WAY overly aggressive in his approach and then we found Amani Jae entertainment, after we searched their social media and they had a PERFECT vibe. We met James and we knew that was our match! He was informative, helpful and gave us the best guidance. They're exactly what they portray on the internet (which we all know online can be deceiving). Their energy is perfect. Always do your research before hiring, and when you research James and Jackie you will be getting exactly what you see! My husband and I always tease when we see their new events that we want to go crash them because of how FUN they were! Thanks so much James and Jackie for the best day and the best memories!

tial time my wife and I first met them, it was an instant connection. We had nothing but good vibes from them and the best part was that they both sat back and just listened to us. With both my wife any I being in the medical field, communication is key and we really appreciated that they both took the time to listen to what we were looking for. Once they got the idea of what were looking for, they had the perfect ideas of how we could achieve them. Very professional and kind. They worked with the other vendors and took it upon themselves to meet with other vendors on their own time to make sure all vendors were in sync. As you know, wedding planning can be stressful, especially for the Bride. In this case, I was in charge of the music and the food and they took a lot of stress off of my shoulders and allowed me more time to help my wife with the things she needed to get done. We had a custom mix we wanted to do for our first dance and Amani Jae was able to create a beautiful mix for us. However, I had sent him the wrong song to be added. But with no hesitate, Amani Jae had the mix back to me corrected and flawless the next day. The day of the event, they were there early, before we had even gotten our morning coffee. They worked with the live band that we had (Assyrian Band), and made sure sound check was perfect and that they were on the same page as to when they would be playing as they were alternating play times. During the event, everything sounded beautiful and clear. After the wedding, everyone was saying how awesome the DJ was. So if I could honestly give you a piece of advice, please do yourself a favor and hire Amani Jae Entertainment for DJ/Lighting/Special effects, the lights and fog machine were beautiful!!!!
