We also did the zap photos which were awesome to see during the party. I received all those great action shots at the end of the night! We had an incredible time thanks to Dan and his team !!!

We chose Just for the Record through our package with Mansion at West Sayville and we could not have picked a better DJ ourselves! Upon meeting with Dan, you can immediately tell why the Lessings keep this company within their package network!!...
Dan was very helpful throughout our booking process and in the weeks before our wedding to plan the music. Dan’s confidence put me at ease and my husband really liked the smaller business feel. We never felt like we were one of 10 weddings they were juggling that weekend. Dan was our MC and then we had our DJ and we rented a photo booth through JFTR. Dan seamlessly kept the night moving with tons of energy, got guests involved even when at their tables and the dance floor was never empty. The photo booth was awesome so definitely go with it if you’re on the fence! Amazing group of people!! Definitely recommend!!

Last minute I asked him if I could send him some pictures to put together slideshows for the mother/son and father/daughter dances. And he did with no problem. He had someone with him taking pictures that he played on the screen during the wedding. He gave us a disc at the end of the night with all the pics she took. And she captured a lot of special moments. He played a fun game to give away the centerpieces and he got everyone at every table involved. The only thing was I sent him a list of a few songs we wanted played through txt. He said he received it but we didnt hear any of them. But otherwise our experience was perfect!

Just 4 The Record, Elliot and Danny went above and beyond to make our wedding night amazing. To set everything up, we met with Elliot about a year and a half before our wedding date and he was extremely easy to work with. He made it very clear ...
from the beginning that he would do whatever it was that we wanted to ensure we were happy with our music. He gave recommendations with his experience and really helped us leave his office excited after our final meeting. The day of the wedding was perfect. Elliot and Danny read the crowd and kept the dance floor packed all night long while making sure to play every song we asked and more. They were also quick on their feet when we had some wardrobe malfunctions that affected the order of our entrance dances and they improvised to keep the night running smoothly. We give our highest recommendations for Elliot, Danny and their company and thank them again for an unforgettable night.

few more oldies in order to get the older generations out dancing.
Our MC was great as well. The only reason we are giving 4 stars is because he played this really weird ice-breaker before dinner that made a lot of people uncomfortable. If he asks you if you'd be ok with an ice breaker, say no! Or ask for what kind of game it is. I would even recommend requesting to not do this, even if he doesn't bring it up first.

o us. Danny walked out and waved us down but walked right back into the back of his house before we even got out of the car. I had to call him back to see which door he went into. he was very rude about that encounter as if I was the idiot for not walking into a strangers side house door. the meeting went ok. mediocre videos were shown but then he showed us some live music accompaniments and it seemed like working with him would be ok. we start going over details and he mentions " listen were not for everyone, if you have crazy requests or your gong to be picky then maybe were not for you" now after hearing that I thought wow rude, but I work in the service industry and I get it, you can't be a miracle worker by to say this to a bride while in the middle of booking you I can't believe I didn't run away then. I was given an extremely outdated list of songs that are "popular requests" and told to pick from this list. Now people I don't have to tell you that music changes all the time. even my photo booth guy said that is so un heard of. Now let's fast forward a year later. I'm 29 days away from my wedding and I have not heard a single thing from this guy. I HAD TO CALL HIM AND HE HAD NO IDEA WHO WE WERE. Danny your booked to do my wedding in 29 days and you don't even recognize my name!!?? now I had to find a new dj and cancel this joke of a company 29 days before my wedding. AND this schmuck won't give us our deposit back when he didn't even remember he had us booked!!?? AND now he wants us to fill out a formal cancellation letter and send it to him. I don't even want to lift a finger for this crappy company let alone lose out on 49 cents for a stamp to send my "formal cancellation letter" UNBELIEVABLE!!!! you guys should be shut down.
