Jon was great! He played the keyboard at our ceremony and DJ’d the reception. He was friendly and responsive to all of my calls or emails in advance of the wedding. When I picked out most of our song choices mere days before the wedding, he lea...
rned them or found them with ease. He arrived early and I didn’t worry about a thing all afternoon and evening as Jon had everything under control. He’s a talented musician and a great guy!

Jon was so great!! I cannot recommend him enough. He played live piano music at the ceremony, played the sax at the cocktail hour, and was the DJ. Each part was perfect! He played the ceremony songs we requested with no problem, everyone enjoye...
d the live sax music, and his DJing was exactly what we envisioned. He was not your typical cheesy DJ, and kept things classy. I don't know how, but Jon captured our style in music perfectly. Not only was he professional, but also very friendly and easy to work with. I was very worried about the music and DJ part of the wedding, and he couldn't have made us happier! Thank you so much Jon!

Pros: Jon is a very kind, laid back guy. Our guests & family enjoyed talking with him. He had a smile on his face & was very approachable. He made nice with our other vendors & even gave them a hand with certain parts of the night. Overall, Jon...
played some nice music & had a great light display during the reception part of the night.
Cons: There were some mistakes during the wedding. Unfortunately, some of these mistakes really took away from our wedding experience. When I hired Jon, he assured me that he was very detail-oriented & would be calling me at least 1 week before the wedding to review all the timelines/details/etc. We never spoke on the phone after our initial talk in August 2015 when I booked him (the wedding was 13 months later). I believe that if he had followed through with that call, some of these big mistakes would not have happened:
1. He did not play our recessional. We walked down the aisle in silence. This was the absolute worst part of the wedding & something I have been deeply upset about since. Jon explained that his battery died and he didn't have a back-up.
2. The music played outdoors was hard to hear, which was a concern that I had brought up through email & wanted to discuss prior to the wedding, but we never did.
3. Jon did not entirely stick to the schedule. We and/or a family friend had to prompt him throughout the night to start different parts of the schedule (speeches, dances, reception, etc.)
Overall, Jon was a good DJ. I would recommend him, but not for DIY weddings where you are relying on the DJ to MC the guests through the schedule, or for places that require battery-packs for music.
