John was AMAZING! We absolutely loved him and we couldn't have been happier with how things went. Everyone was on the dance floor all night. Even though we sent him a list of songs, John read our guests and kept playing songs that everyone loved! All of our guests kept telling... Read More us how great the DJ was and how perfect the music was all evening. He played the dinner music low enough so tables could still chat and he transitioned into the dance portion perfectly. The whole night flowed and he did an awesome job as the emcee.

I told Aaron at the beginning of wedding planning that I wanted the reception to be memorable....and it truly was! There are still people making comments about how energized and fun Ariel was.

My wedding was a blast thanks to Jazz-it up Productions. Ariel has performed for many other family functions and has always done an outstanding job. Outgoing and fun loving personality shines in her work and it is evident that she loves what she does. Ariel's experience and...

People danced the entire time she performed from start to finish. The reception was a huge success thanks to Ariel. Also, this service is extremely professional and affordable. Ariel also gave us many helpful tips, that I would not have thought of. I believe that the other DJ's jazz it up employs are handpicked to match the same style. I would recommend their services to anyone for whatever the occasion. Thank you Jazz it-up productions couldn't have asked for anyone else!

Stefan was seriously a super star. He was working in a venue he had been to multiple times before, and our requests were relatively complex. He took his own time to come down a day early and attend the rehearsal due to the complexity of the situation so that he could confidently... Read More execute our perfect day. At no point did he ever seem impatient or put off by the specificity with which we were presenting and he took everything in stride and executed beautifully. It rained on our wedding day, a lot. This took a lot of last minute adjusting. Luckily, it held off long enough for our outdoor ceremony but this meant Stefan had to set up and break down sound equipment so we could have our ceremony music which he happily had no problem with what so ever..Stefan was able to adjust last minute to make sure we still had everything we wanted despite the weather woes and he was supportive and positive throughout the process. He kept the schedule of events on time, kept people on the dance floor, dealt with power surges in our venue, followed all our requests and made our day everything we could have wanted even with a few curve balls. I would definitely recommend working with Stefan. He always makes you his priority and will not let you down no matter the request!

We couldn't have been more pleased with the services Aaron provided to us during our wedding ceremony and reception. Thank You to Aaron to remind us to post a review here today. When any business grows as theirs has you get haters and that is unfortunate that people have... Read More nothing better to do. Take it from a couple who knows. He truly has so many customers that are in love with what he does. Many DJs just go play music and the entire customer service thing is lost but not with these guys.

I have used Jazz It Up Productions for all of my DJ needs for the last 12 years.

Ariel tailors everything to your wishes, including how much interaction you want him to have with guests emceeing, his wardrobe, music selection, etc. No detail is too small and Ariel delivered on everything we asked her to do and more. I've been to 8 weddings this year and have seen how some DJs conduct themselves like it is their day and their show... Ariel is nothing like this. She truly cares and listens to what you want during your wedding/event. She was an excellent emcee during the dinner and cocktail portion of the evening, and an outstanding DJ during the dance party.

Beg for Ariel. Needless to say we were pleased and she has our highest recommendation.

I have to say I was disappointed in the DJ service we received on our wedding day. Most of the reviews were so amazing, I was really excited for Jazz It Up to lead the party on our day. I did not meet with anyone in person to discuss what we wanted, it was all done through... Read More e-mail. They provided me with planning forms to indicate the types of music we wanted at any particular time. I had requested for our dinner music to be country/acoustic/alternative trips music. The DJ played elevator music. It really gave a boring feel to the environment and I felt the need to move the reception activities along, faster than I would have probably wanted, had the environment felt more enjoyable. I wanted the DJ to sense how the night was going and lead it accordingly, but I felt like I was running the show, which added a level of stress to our day that I didn't want. When the dancing portion of the night started, old, cheesy songs were being played, such as the electric slide. We are a 25 year old couple, so I wrote on my form that we wanted current music. We had to start actually going over there and consistently giving requests. If there was a time we didn't have requests lined up, another odd song came on. Stairway To Heaven was a long song that had no place in the middle of a reception where people were to be up and dancing! He wouldn't change that song either until it was done and that song is 8 minutes! By the end of the night, it seemed to have gotten better, bit most of my guests had left. If I was to do this differently, I would have tried to specifically request the DJs everyone raves about in reviews.

There is not one negative thing we can say about this company. I previously attended a pretty conservative wedding where Jazz It-Up Productions was the DJ and the team was extremely professional. It's a great feeling to find a vendor that has an active website, with prices... Read More listed so you don't have to worry about haggling or listening to a sales pitch only to discover it is out of your price range. Additionally, it is great to find a DJ that has such great hosting capabilities as well. While planning, this vendor was the only vendor (aside from my venue) that responded back to us promptly. They also very politely answered what in hindsight were some pretty silly questions, which was just indicative of how great they are at what they do. We ordered our lighting, photobooth, and DJ services from Jazz It-Up productions and we were emphatically pleased with their services. Everything ran promptly, our dance floor was never empty, and they were incredibly polite and fun! I would not hesitate to recommend this company for ANY event.

Jazz It-Up Productions.that is all. At the beginning of the planning process, I thought the music was going to be the hardest part to organize. My husband and I have two very different types of taste, so I knew finding a DJ we BOTH liked would be extremely difficult. From the... Read More beginning, Jazz It-Up Productions WOWed us! They have, hands down the best website. I was able to listen to samples of each of the DJ’s, see a promo video of them “performing” in a wedding environment and other various facts about each of them. This is where I knew Aaron was our guy. He changed my opinions of how hard finding a DJ would be the first time I talked to him. He was literally the most exciting, most easy going "I've got this" type of guy. He explained the process from start to finish; filled us in on what works best and what doesn’t; shared stories and ideas from his past experiences, but most importantly he took time to get to know US. He asked US questions about who we are and what we like. When either of us had a concern about certain songs working together, he took time to explain how the mixing process worked, and even gave us examples. Fast forward through the easy process to the wedding. Along with conversations leading up to the wedding, Aaron showed up to the wedding super stylish and very professional. Even when my MIL changed the Mother/Groom song the morning of, everything ran so smoothly. With Aaron's mixing style and fillers, Aaron had the dance floor packed.literally, ALL.NIGHT.LONG. His theory of “blocking” and suggestions of when to lay what genres is GENIUS. (If you don’t know what I am talking about let him sit down with you and explain it.)There was not a point during the whole reception that the dancefloor was empty! It was amazing. There is a saying, “You get what you pay for”. That certainly is not the case We got so much more. Aaron with Jazz It-Up Productions is extremely talented! Highly recommend!
