What a wonderful experience we had working with JR! We recently used him as DJ for our wedding and we had a blast. I was on the dance floor the entire night along with many of our guests (and my husband who does not dance)! He played such a great selection of his music, my... Read More requests, and requests from our guests. He was so easy to work with and very flexible. I had requested a few meetings with him which he was always willing to accommodate whether it be over the phone or in-person. The night before my wedding I had some last minute changes to go over which he had no problem accommodating. One of my concerns for the ceremony was the mic system. I wanted our guests to be able to hear my husband and I but I didn't want a microphone set up between us. JR did an awesome job of working with the mic hooked up to our pastor so that when my husband or I were speaking, the volume was turned up so even those far away could hear us which was exactly what I wanted! I would highly recommend JR for a wedding or any other event!

J Are is awsome!!!! I Found him on The Knot and booked him in June 2016 for my March 17, 2017 Wedding. From the time I booked him until the end of my wedding, he was very accommodating and very easy to get along with. Let's just start from the beginning I did a lot of research... Read More in regards to cost and quality before I hired any of my wedding vendors. I found J Are on wedding wire and instantly contacted him since he had nothing but good reviews and his prices were amazingly reasonable. My main request when it came to a DJ was to have everyone up, dancing, and having fun since it was a St. Patrick's Day Wedding. I also wanted a DJ with a reasonably priced projector and screen because my parents both passed away and this was going to be one of the best ways to honor them by having their pictures playing as I danced with my brother during the father daughter dance. J Are defiantly accommodated both of my wishes. We meet several times throughout the planning process and every time he came to me so that I didn't have to travel far. He was very easy to get a hold of anytime I needed him. I gave him a list of songs that I liked and he played every one of them as well as all of the songs that my guest requested the night of. The day of my wedding he arrived early (In fact earlier than me) which is awesome and was ready to party and get my guest up and dancing as I wished. My slide show was amazing and I received nothing but compliments about how fun my wedding was and how good my DJ was. I highly recommend J Are and I would surely hire him again for any of my future DJ needs!!!!
