We had a truly wonderful experience with Jerry this past summer. From our first phone conversation to our fourth and final one two days before our wedding, he was willing and able to answer any of our questions. Throughout the planning process he made invaluable suggestions and helped us understand the flow of our wedding and reception. During the crazy, wonderful, hectic final days leading up to our wedding, he was a calming, helpful force. Our guests loved Jerry and we received multiple complements on the music selections. We will never forget looking around us on the dance floor and being surrounded by pockets of friends and loved ones all dancing and singing together. It was such such a magical, special moment and we just felt so incredibly lucky. Our many thanks go out to Jerry, we can't recommend him enough.
Music was one of--if not THE--most important thing to me. I spent a lot of time gathering songs I love and knew our guests would love to dance to. We met with Jerry and he was very receptive my playlist. He was very helpful with the flow of the reception. My husband and I were doing everything ourselves (no wedding planner) so this was very helpful to us. I can't even count how many people came up to me during and after the wedding to tell me how much they LOVED the music and Jerry! If you're looking for a DJ look no further than DJ Jerry Jaz; he's the best!
Safe to say we were nervous on our wedding day but having Jerry there was like having another set of eyes on everything making sure everything would run smoothly. It made us feel so much better knowing that our DJ would have everything planned for us and all he wanted was from us was to have the time of our lives. Our crowd loves to have a good time and dance and that's exactly what happened. From the moment he asked everyone to come down to the dance floor till the very end of the night people were dancing. I vaguely remember the crowd shouting "Jerry, Jerry, Jerry" at the end of the night wanting to dance some more. Almost 4 weeks later and we still have friends and family telling us they want to relive that night because of how fun it was and Jerry was a huge part of that. We can't thank him enough and we encourage anyone who may have a chance to have Jerry as their DJ to do so!
DJ Jerry was a true professional throughout the whole wedding process. We leaned on his expertise as a partner for planning, logistical decisions, ceremony sound support, etc. Our wedding had 200 people and by the end of the night DJ Jerry had just about everyone on the dance floor! Booking DJ Jerry for your wedding is a no brainer. He is reliable, professional and knows how to get the party going!
Jerry was such a professional. From the planning process to the wedding itself, he was amazing. We had some pretty specific requests that we were sure he wouldn't be able to find, we were wrong.....Fantastic guy!
Jerry was hands down the greatest to work with! He was so professional, prompt and had a great sense of humor! We had no idea what we were doing so he guided us the entire way and put together a rockin' soundtrack based on our style and preferences! It was such a smooth process and he also kept checking in periodically to keep everything on schedule and gave us helpful hints to make the overall day run smoother! We can't say enough good things about Jerry! He did an outstanding job and our guests had an amazing time. We got so many compliments from our guests about how great he was and how he kept the party going! THANK YOU SO MUCH JERRY!!
My husband and I were so happy with the emceeing and DJing services Jerry provided for our June 7, 2015 wedding. Not only were all our interactions - in person, via email or phone - very friendly and relaxed, Jerry was a terrific DJ for our wedding cocktail hour and reception. He played almost all the songs we requested ( I'm sure we chose 6+hrs worth!) and he set the tone of our celebration to just the way we had hoped! As a wedding planner myself, I have seen all kinds of DJs with very distinct personalities that can 'take over' the feel of the reception. Jerry's focus was on my husband and I , making sure we were happy with how things were moving along and that our guests were having an amazing time. He hit it out of the park on both fronts. Our family and friends continue to tell us how much fun our wedding was, how memorable the day was and how thankful they are to have been a part of it. Much of that emotion is due to Jerry's great skill is providing exactly the right music, right timing and just overall great service to make any wedding just magical. Thanks again, Jerry!
Jerry went above and beyond in all aspects of our wedding entertainment ! From the start he was there to help us with music selection and even editing of some songs for special moments! Our guests were on the dance floor nonstop and even some of our non-traditional requests were met ! The dancing and singing went on all night! Everyone had such a great time! Jerry exceeded any hopes that I could have for the perfect wedding! His professionalism was outstanding and the night went off without a hitch! Who could ask for more!
I highly recommend Jerry. I used him for my wedding recently and he was just incredible to work with. First, he was a great DJ. I gave him a few specific requests, told him a few genres I liked, and he immediately picked up on the vibe was did the rest. Everyone was happy with the music. He also was very helpful with planning. He had a ton of great ideas for our introduction, the venue layout, and the timeline, all of which the groom and I incorporated into our wedding day plan. The groom and I hadn't really thought about our introduction until we spoke with Jerry, but it turned out to be one of the biggest hits of the night and something that everyone will definitely remember. He really helped us add little details here and there that our guests were talking about all night. He was great!
I just want to second my wife's comments from yesterday. What a fine gentleman. We spoke before the ceremony and got acquainted. He was responsive to all our needs and a perfect professional. He even helped my older daughter set up for her toast which included a screen and projector. Everyone had fun and enjoyed the music. Highly recommend him.
Wow! Jerry made our daughter's wedding a great success! Molly and Kevin found Jerry on the Internet and after a few emails they had great confidence that Jerry would be a great fit for their rustic/romantic Maine wedding. He understood what Molly meant when she said "no cheesy wedding music" so that was great . He played all our requests. Jerry was familiar with our venue, he had worked there many times and knew just how and where to set up for the best sound, so that was great too. As parents of the bride we were grateful that there were no worries about anything to do with the music. Everyone was up and dancing all night, and we have Jerry to thank for that!
Jerry DJ'ed at our August 2016 wedding and we couldn't have been happier! He took care of the pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception music. Everything flowed seamlessly. Jerry made sure all of our "must plays" were played and also kept the dance floor full throughout the reception. After the wedding, everyone told me what a fun wedding it was, and Jerry played a huge role in that! Beyond the music, Jerry was extraordinarily helpful in making sure that everything flowed smoothly. He was able to anticipate the best moment to do the toasts, dances, cake cutting, etc. as well as helping with other last minute things that we needed. I was able to focus only on enjoying the wedding because I knew that Jerry was taking care of the rest, which was such a relief! I would highly recommend Jerry to any bride!
It was a pleasure to work with Jerry! He is very enthusiastic about his job and is equally as excited for you and your big day! He was always willing to chat on the phone and was very responsive via email. When you speak with Jerry you can tell he has years of experience in this industry and is always supportive of your ideas, but also willing to offer his own advice. I would recommend Jerry as anyone's wedding DJ!
We wish there were more stars to give Jerry. He went above and beyond the call of duty – from tracking the crazy thunderstorm that ripped through during cocktail hour to filling champagne glasses for our best man and maid of honor for their speeches. Jerry does not miss a detail and brought a calming presence to our big day. Now to the music – it was near impossible to end the dancing and that was after adding an extra hour that evening (which Jerry was totally cool with). He kept the dance floor packed and played a great mix of the songs that we sent to him in advance and the songs of his choice (as well as those requested from our guests). Planning the event was seamless, as he took the time to meet with us and have multiple follow-up calls. Again, he is incredibly organized and completely accommodating. We highly recommend Jerry – and suggest people book him in advance! We are more than happy to be a reference if anyone would like additional info. We can’t thank him enough for making it a memorable day.
Jerry was fantastic from beginning to end. We planned our Maine wedding at the Hardy Farm from overseas. Almost all of our correspondence was through email which we thought would be daunting. It wasn't! Jerry was quick to reply and easy to make plans with. We met once in person 10 months before our wedding and were very impressed by Jerry's professionalism and friendliness. As we neared the big day we were very confident Jerry has everything under control. He corresponded with our wedding singer, our venue and our family. On the day of he arrived early and set up the entire venue with speakers and mics - details we totally overlooked. He made sure everything would be perfect - and it was! It was clear Jerry took the job seriously, and really enjoyed his role in our wedding. The music was fantastic - he played a wide range of music genres and every single requested song. Music was played throughout the cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. Jerry has prepared music for the entire day which everyone was very pleased with - he even played our Danish wedding tunes as well. Everyone was dancing for three hours straight during the reception. The day was exactly what we wanted. I recommend Jerry to anyone and everyone! :]
Master of Ceremonies, DJ Jerry Bazata, met all my inquiries/needs and exceeded anything I could have imagined. As a newly engaged woman never been down the wedding road I had NO idea as to where to start with wedding planning. I had done some research and initially I wanted to NOT have a DJ because I was trying to save some money. After his genuine words of advice and some horror stories I had heard along the way, it was in my best interest to hire one. DJ JAZ was so incredibly helpful from the first moment we spoke via e-mail, then phone, and also via text. Prior to meeting him, I knew that he was the one. He was a "father figure" to me, he put things into context, he was well spoken, he articulated well, he knew what he was doing, and the emphasis was on me and our day. He mentioned a bunch of times how it wasn't about him. He was kind, sincere, happy, and a realist. His price list was way less than the others (this is a fun thing for him, not his primary job) and fit our budget. Over the 11 months we communicated probably 25+ times, he always made time to speak with me. As it got closer to the wedding date, he went over the easy-to-fill-out forms and made sure pronunciation of names were correct. At 2am the morning of the wedding day I emailed him with a change in music and he was more then willing to accommodate. On the day of the wedding, I was nervous and I didn't know what to do or where to stand and/or places people were suppose to be and he had it ALL FIGURED OUT and kept me updated of what the "next step" was the entire time. It was always a very fluid transition. The 80s music we had picked was pushed more until the end because the dance floor was full of people that were enjoying more pop/oldies music but overall the process, music, and him were well liked and we all had a ton of fun. Thank you DJ Jaz! I seriously couldn't have done it without you! Much love to your family!!!!
We are extremely pleased with Jerry as the DJ for our wedding as he did a remarkable job on all accounts. The dancefloor was packed the entire night thanks to Jerry's music, and we received nothing but compliments from our guests. These are some additional positive points about Jerry's performance: - He was easy to get in touch with by phone and email during the weeks leading up to the wedding - He did a great job with combining our wishes (e.g. song requests etc.) with his own suggestions (like supplementing the playlist with other songs that fitted the party perfectly, but also suggesting ideas about how to start off the party which we didn't really have ideas about, and pointing out details that we hadn't even considered, like electicity supply to our tent) - He went above and beyond not only for the dancing party, but also for accommodating music during the ceremony and cocktail hour as well as microphones and other equipment for speeches during ceremony and dinner - He was extremely friendly, flexible and accommodating throughout the entire process, and seemed to enjoy the party himself as well - He is very reasonably priced Overall, we would warmly recommend Jerry to anybody looking for a DJ for his/her wedding or other party.
From the moment we met Jerry we knew we were in good hands! Never had any doubts! He was there for us from beginning to end. He had so many ideas, he knew how to handle every situation and his attention to detail was amazing. The one thing I had told Jerry from the beginning is that I want all my guests to have fun, the dance floor was always full and everyone was smiling thanks to him!
Jerry was a phenomenal DJ and point person at our wedding! From the moment Michael and I sat with him, we felt confident that he would be that person that every bride wants by their side on her big day! His attention to detail and thoroughness during the initial meeting put me at ease and allowed me to give up some control. Jerry made himself available up to the day of the wedding and took charge of the space when he arrived. Although he makes his job look easy with his outgoing personality and smile, it should not go unnoticed that he takes the planning and timing of the evening, very serious. He ensured that there was not one dull moment!!!! Thank you, Jerry!!!
Jerry was an absolute pleasure to work with through the entire wedding planning process! He was attentive in all forms of communication, set a clear expectation and is just an amazing person. Thank you Jerry, you made our day truly amazing and unforgettable. Love, the Johanson's :)
My husband and I cannot say enough kind words about Jerry. He truly exceeded our expectations, everything was so smooth and perfectly planned out through the whole evening. He kept our dance floor packed all night long, what more could you ask for at your wedding!! Jerry is an absolute pleasure to work with! So highly recommended! Planning can be so stressful but when you have people like Jerry to help you make a big part of it that much easier, it says alot about him. I can honestly say that our day would not have been the same without Jerry, we appreciate everything he did to make our wedding that much more special ! :) Mr & Mrs Amaral
Great DJ, Great personReviewed on 10/28/2015 Heather K
Jerry was great! He met and talked with us as much as we needed. I had a friend play the violin and he spoke with her on the phone so they could work out the flow of the ceremony, and everything went perfect. He was able to read the vibe of the reception and play music that would get everyone dancing. We had many guests comment about how great the DJ was. Highly recommend him.
Outstanding!Reviewed on 10/27/2015
Jerry was an outstanding DJ!!! And, he was much more than that. We didn’t know what we were doing, going into the planning process of our wedding. I was stressed and didn’t know where to start. When we sat down with Jerry to go over our wedding day for the first time, he relieved much of this stress. His immense experience was invaluable to us. He helped us to plan our day by listening to our desires and offering guidance based on what he had seen work well or not so well in previous weddings he had been a part of. I left that first meeting feeling much calmer about the whole planning process. On the day of our wedding, Jerry was the first of our vendors to arrive. He got there early to setup and make sure everything was working properly before the start of the festivities. We had an outdoor ceremony with no access to electricity, so Jerry did his research and found a cordless solution that worked wonders. Jerry went above and beyond, going as far as helping to lay down the runner at the ceremony site! Jerry had great recommendations for ceremony music! We received many compliments from our guests. At the reception, Jerry was a master at reading the vibe of the crowd and kept everyone dancing all night! We had a list of songs that we provided to him and he did an amazing job choosing the timing of each and mixing in other music to please our energetic guests. We really can’t say enough good things about our experience working with Jerry. He was absolutely a pleasure to work with from our first phone call through to our wedding day. We wholeheartedly recommend him!!!
DJ Jerry was our first choice when I started researching options for our upcoming Summer 2016 wedding, but unfortunately, he'd already been booked for another event. However, he was such a valuable resource for me while I continued the search. He provided his insight and recommendation of several other DJs in the Maine area, all with his personal guarantee. He even reached out to them to ensure that they were available for our date! Jerry has offered to lend his ear for any music related/general planning questions I have over the next several months, and I couldn't be more grateful.
Wedding August 8thReviewed on 10/24/2015 Erica C
When we got engaged, we had a short time period between engagement time and the actual wedding (10 months). We knew a couple DJs, but for a Maine summer wedding, they were already booked! So we turned to rely on The Knot for vendor choices. After speaking with a few DJs (who did not impress us) we came in contact with Jerry. I was worried about choosing a DJ based on reviews, but in hindsight I was extremely pleased. Jerry was very flexible and easy to work with. He worked well with my VERY particular requests and he took the reins on the night so I could just enjoy myself. We had so much fun and only wish we could celebrate the day all over again! Thanks Jerry!
