soned of DJ's, but Jimmy was enthusiastic and professional from the first e-mail over a year ago to the closing minutes, and the vibe in the room didn't lull for even a single second.
During the cocktail hour we hardly went five minutes into any conversation with guests before one (or both) of our ears perked up and responded with a mental "Oh, hell yeah!" before continuing our conversation.
Having had him as our DJ and the benefit of hindsight, he could triple his price and we'd hire him again without any hesitation.

Jimmy also knows how to play to the audience. The dance floor was never empty and I mean never until the end of the night. He played songs everyone loved and played every song we wanted to hear. When he says he knows how to play to the audience, please believe him.
We also loved his website organization forms. We were able to organize all of our songs and plan our whole event right on his website. It was perfect. Thank you Jimmy for everything! I will be recommending you to people looking for a DJ.

tely and switch to a backyard wedding at a property we’d never seen with a smaller guest count. Jimmy set up all his equipment without ever seeing the property and took care of everything from the ceremony through the reception. We planned this wedding within a few months and I gave Jimmy very little guidance on our music choices. I had been to a wedding with him as the DJ before and knew he’d be able to take the lead and read the crowd, which he did. Even though we had a smaller guest count it still felt like a party thanks to his music choices and overall enthusiasm. I'd recommend Jimmy without any hesitation and our day would have been a lot more stressful if we didn’t have him as our DJ.

A DJ plays such a crucial role in a wedding & after talking to him, we trusted him completely. SO glad we did! Jimmy killed it yesterday. The music was continuous & each song flowed into the next one perfectly. The dance floor was packed all night long! We are still getting calls & texts about how great he was! His lights on the dance floor were awesome. His set up looked great. He also brought uplighting that completely transformed the ballroom! I could not recommend DJUj enough!!!

James was such an amazing DJ for our wedding in late-January! He came as a recommendation from our venue (BRIX on the Fox), but we eventually found out later that he DJ'd my sister-in-law's wedding 6 years ago! With all that set aside...we want...
to highlight some absolutely awesome things we LOVED about James:
1. He was so nice, honest, and open to helping.
2. The program we used to make our "setlist" was SUPER easy to use and we were able to customize everything down to first dances, dedications, processionals/recessionals, and more! Another awesome part of this was that he picked and played songs from our setlist based on the crowd. He also played a few songs that we didn't have on our list, but again...it was spot on with the crowd. In short...he was really good at reading the crowd based on how they were on the dance floor.
3. All of the music had a great flow! Songs didn't go fast...slow...fast... He would play a few faster songs and then give the crowd a break by playing a slower-paced song.
4. He was SUPER quick to respond to e-mails and last minute requests (such as the processional song, our Photo Rush song, and the Father/Daughter breakout dance that I created and sent to him).
5. Professionalism really stuck out to us too - dressed for the occasion and interacted with the crowd in a polite, fun, and professional manner. We were so grateful to have him assist us and our photographer with having our families get ready for photos under our trellis (basically getting everyone's attention and on standby).
6. He was diligent with providing the FOB, Bestman, and Maid of Honor with the microphones when needed for their speeches. Our ceremony was setup perfectly with our officiant having a lapel microphone and the reader with a mic stand.
7. James' quote was fair, reasonable, and competitive. We didn't have to put a deposit down for our wedding day, but rather sign an electronic contract for it to be considered "booked" - it made it very convenient!
Overall, we were very pleased with James and his DJ skills! Our friends and families were talking about the music throughout the night and in the weeks after the wedding! We're glad that James could be part of our special day and would welcome the opportunity to work with him again if the opportunity presented itself!

a great job of preparing us for our big day. He has a great online tool for organizing what songs you want played/don't want played, which was easy to use and very helpful. He met with us in person to go over everything and took great notes and asked great questions. He was in contact before the wedding and really made us feel at ease about the music. On the day of the wedding he was prompt and on time. Our florist was supposed to set up some NYE party supplies, but never did. James stepped right up and helped us out with it, which was so incredibly nice. During dinner, he did an amazing job of prepping people for their speeches. He was great at controlling the mic and making sure everything went smoothly. We had two songs for our first dance and he transitioned them with ease. During the night he played all the right music. He knew how to get everyone on the dance floor, both the young and old. James really knows how to read the room and get the most people out on the dance floor. I can't express enough how amazing he was!!!! At the end of the night he still had people out on the dance floor chanting "one more song!" His set up is also really cool and visually appealing, definitely one of the best DJ booths we've ever seen. He also did up-lighting for us which looked beautiful. He was so accommodating, polite and overall a really great DJ. If you want an amazing wedding where people are dancing all night then definitely hire James!!!

James is the perfect wedding DJ. I swear I'm tempted to hire him just to DJ our house warming party coming up, he's that fun.
He's very personable, professional, and thoughtful. He really cares about the experience we get and about our wedding....
The one thing that stood out most to me was this:
As the groom I was giving my dinner speech. I mentioned to one of my groomsman a time in which he was playing a random tune on his guitar and I just started singing a song I felt fit the tune. It was a great moment and I told my groomsman I'll never forget it. As soon as I finished my speech James played the song. The one I had mentioned in my speech. I hadn't thought to tell him about it. I hadn't thought to ask. But he was listening and did the exact right thing in that moment because he cares.
That, I'll never forget.
So yeah, hire him. You won't find anyone else more willing to do anything to make your special day perfect.

He mixes the perfect amount of music from oldies to hits of today and it works seamlessly.
