Right when my wife & I met with Jay for the first time, we knew we had to book him as our DJ. With booking Jay over a year in advance, we never stressed or really thought about the music aspect of our wedding because we were more than confident in his ability from a 45 minute... Read More meeting. From this, he not only made the whole planning aspect super easy but also made it fun because everything was so organized. During our wedding, he nailed it. We could not have ask for a better selection of music along with the requests he chose to play. Our friends/families did nothing but compliment us on our DJ as he played every song at the right time & kept everyone on their feet the entire night. Thank you Jay for making our wedding as awesome as you did!!!!!

We first came across Jay G at our friend's wedding in October 2015. From the moment he began, we knew that we had to have Jay G DJ at our wedding. He is absolutely amazing and extremely talented.

If a guest asked him to say something or do something he thought was questionable, he would ask us for our thoughts. During the music selection process, he was helpful and knowledgeable with his suggestions of songs for specific parts of the wedding. We honestly could not ask for a better DJ! Jay G is fantastic and we would definitely use him again if we ever need a DJ.

As soon as we got engaged, I knew that I had to have Johnny Budz as the DJ for our wedding and, of course, he didn't disappoint!

MC Mike was fantastic as well and kept the party moving along. Besides the music and dancing, our plasma TV photo montage during cocktail hour was great, as well as our additional lighting, custom GOBO - and of course, the CO2 blasters added a nice touch to the madness. THANK YOU Elite Sound, Johnny Budz and MC Mike for and AMAZING Wedding! We shouldn't have asked for better!

Words cannot even describe how amazing our wedding was because of our DJ! Johnny Budz is super talented at what he does and had the dance floor packed the whole night- including our older guests!

Our friends literally kept asking for 1 more song at the end of the night – nobody wanted to stop dancing!! Everyone kept coming up to us during the night saying how great the music and DJ was.

It is huge and it easily fit me and my 9 bridesmaids without cutting off anyone! We also had the dancing on the clouds and CO2 blasters which made some nice pictures! Johnny also had a special B&G grand entrance announcement made for us and it was EXACTLY what we wanted. All of the staff at Elite Sound were professional, flexible, and honest. They were the easiest and nicest vendor we worked with throughout the whole wedding process. Any questions we had were answered almost immediately. Our DJ/MC literally MADE our wedding reception!! It was everything we imagined and then some!! THANK YOU SO MUCH Johnny and Mike!! Xo Melissa and Joe

From the start working with Elite Sound was a dream. We had our first meeting with the company and were lucky enough to be set up with Jay. From the first time we met him we knew that he had to be our DJ. Not only did he answer all of our questions on the spot, he was... Read More professional, and had great ideas for us, even though our wedding was over a year away. Throughout the planning process Elite Sound always kept in contact with us; sending us updates and also reminding us of important planning dates. Their online planning system makes choosing songs easy and organized. When we met with Jay for our final meeting he made us feel at ease and was extremely prepared for our upcoming wedding. Jay is a people person and knows how to make the bride and groom both happy. He even had the songs we chose cut to the exact parts we wanted them to be without us even telling him. Then came the wedding. Jay far exceeded our expectations. He was our DJ and the MC, keeping our wedding running smoothly and getting everyone up and out on the dance floor. He is truly amazing at what he does. The dance floor was PACKED with people of all ages the entire night. Immediately after the wedding (and still weeks later) we still have family and friends talking about how amazing our DJ was and how they have never seen so many people (we had 210 guests) dancing the whole night. We even had people who weren’t at out wedding say how they heard about how amazing our DJ was. Jay played everything from Spice Girls, to Dave Matthews, to “Love Shack”, to Bruce, to Garth Brooks. We would highly recommend not only Elite Sound, but Jay as well.

MetLife Stadium Wedding- I’m going to start this review by pointing out that when multiple glasses were broken on our dance floor, our guests still REFUSED TO LEAVE IT. Direct quote from my cousin "I had glass in my foot but theres no way I was going to stop dancing". My... Read More sister is a prominent Wedding Planner in NJ and when it came time to book our DJ, she told us she wouldn't let us book anyone other than Johnny Budz/Elite Sound Entertainment, and so we booked him before even meeting the man! They are the only DJ Company my sister recommends to her clients and after you meet him and he does your wedding or event, you'll understand why. He is the best of the best in his industry people. From the very beginning all my husband and I cared about was avoiding a traditional wedding reception. We wanted a nonstop party and that’s what we got. We didn’t have a sit-down dinner so the music was always going, and people were rushing through their plates to get back out there. My dad was so concerned about having music playing during dinner but Johnny Budz worked his magic and somehow made the whole night work flawlessly. We decided not to spend our reception going table to table saying hi to people, which worked out because every single person was out of their seats dancing. My out of state friends told me they were blown away that a wedding could be so fun and they never want to go to a non-jersey wedding again. That is all in thanks to Johnny Budz, Mike (our MC – also so amazing), and the entire Elite Sound Entertainment crew As far as the process leading up to the wedding, Johnny Budz was the freaking man. Having a wedding at venue that does not typically host weddings is challenging for everyone involved. Our reception space was not like a typical wedding venue, so Johnny had to figure out how to do things differently to adapt to the room, and he did without hesitation or frustration. He met us at the Stadium multiple times and solved any issue we had with setup. I’m sure there were things (including us) that were a pain in the as for him (sorry JB) but he never let that show. Him and everyone else on his staff are complete professionals from start to finish. ESE has top of the line equipment and really fun extras – we got to use the brand new photobooth which had to reboot a couple times because our guests were using it so much. To be honest people, there is NO ONE ELSE you want running your wedding, because that’s what the DJ does and we all know music and food are all your guests care about. Johnny Budz got us so excited for our big day, and assured us every single step of the way that our wedding would be what we want it to be. We knew ESE was going to be amazing but they far surpassed our expectations. I could go on forever and you probably haven’t even made it this far but if you have, don’t be stupid – BOOK ELITE SOUND ENTERTAINMENT FOR YOUR EVENT. You won’t be disappointed….only after your weddings over because you won’t get to hang with Johnny Budz anymore. WE LOVE YOU JOHNNY! Can’t wait for you to do our 10 year anniversary party!

We were very happy to have chosen Elite Sound Entertainment. Our DJ was Steve Minichini and he was great - he pretty much played most of music or style of music we requested, and he was a really good MC for the event. I highly recommend ordering the Photo Booth. The guests had... Read More a great time using it, and Elite puts together a scrap book for the bride and groom, and they also post the photos to their website. It's a really fun (and funny!) souvenir from the event. There were only two things I'd change: Firstly, I probably wouldn't have ordered their uplighting because the color wasn't what I was expecting (and when I met with Elite in person before the wedding, they didn't have any uplighting in the office that I could test out). The lights also weren't particularly strong. Secondly, I wasn't expecting to see the Photo Booth operator helping herself (and possibly on behalf of her colleagues) to the buffet at the cocktail hour. We had ordered 3 vendor meals, which no one ate - and I had told the guys in advance that we had ordered them. This is small, but if they had hold told me they planned to grab something from the buffet and skip the vendor meal altogether, it would have save us an additional $150 plus tax plus service charge (so somewhere north of $200). Man, weddings are expensive enough! Still, when it came to the actual music, Elite did a great job. I would recommend them to others (but maybe think twice about ordering the vendor meals!)
