I was referred Jack at LJDJs by a co-worker a few weeks back. My wedding is next October and I'm literally beyond content knowing Jack has a plan for the whole day after going back and forth via email for weeks. He took the time to FaceTime my fiancé and I for a good 45 minutes... Read More after work hours on Monday, and again feel like he has known us for years!!! Rapport and getting to know a client is huge (especially working in the staffing industry) - so I am a huge believer. Again my wedding is a year away and knowing I have a DJ to run the night smoothly means so much for my sanity for the next 12 months. Thank you in advance Jack!!! You guys are the best!

I see that most of these excellent reviews were written by the ladies/brides, so I’m happy to provide some feedback from a groom’s perspective. Our wedding was this past weekend. I’ll start by saying that music is one of my biggest obsessions. I used to DJ and throw parties for... Read More all of my friends and fraternities/sororities back in high school and college and then transitioned into DJing at nightclubs for a bit during my early 20s. I’m a firm believer that music is the essential key to ANY great party. Sadly, though, I can’t help but analyze the music or DJ of any party or event I attend now. I can honestly say that, out of all the weddings I’ve attended in my life, I’ve never truly liked or loved any of the Wedding DJs/MCs that I came across and always saw/heard more things that annoyed me compared to things that impressed me (which I admit is more of a problem with me than the performers I’m referring to). Therefore, when it finally came time to plan my own wedding, the one demand I made to my fiancé at the time was that I would be in control of seeking out and selecting our DJ/Entertainment for the evening. My wife and I had very specific ideas of the kind of vibe and energy we needed at our wedding, so this was absolutely crucial to us. We made the rounds and met with several DJ companies, but Ricardo and the LJDJs team were the immediate standouts after just one meeting. The unique ideas they had, the way they talked, and their unrivaled production quality immediately seemed to gel with our own personalities and ideas, so we booked them nearly a year in advance. From then on, we knew we had nothing to worry about. Ricardo and the LJDJs team absolutely rocked our wedding and helped to make it everything we wanted it to be. They completely accommodated our requests/ideas and helped to make it a truly unique reception that was like no other wedding our friends and family had ever been to. The energy was sky-high, the music was on point and not at all lame or cheesy (which was huge for me), the layout of the evening was unique, and the production/effects were stellar. Ricardo was present and running the show all night, kept the crowd going and got everyone pumped up, but he wasn’t overbearing and never made himself out to be the center of attention. He knew when to step back and let some of the magic unfold naturally while still guiding the night along and letting his personality shine through, which are the signs of a truly great MC/DJ. Ricardo even trusted me to take over the decks to perform a mini “DJ set” for my friends/family like old times, which made for a great moment and highlight of the night for them. Overall, Ricardo and his team, which included Chris (also a great and technically proficient DJ) along with Griffon, helped us execute our wedding reception effortlessly. Ricardo is a true professional and I feel confident in saying that he and LJDJs Design/Entertainment can help YOU throw YOUR OWN ideal wedding party – no matter what kind of evening you’d like it to be. And most importantly, my bride couldn’t have been happier.

Okay, I cannot express how AWESOME Chris & Phil were!! My brother knew Phil way back when he was a solo DJ in Philly and I was told he always threw a good party. Him & Chris basically MADE the reception! The quality of service was bar none top notch! Our cocktail hour ran almost... Read More 30-40min too long (a combination of Filipino time & the cocktail band being too lit for words) and Chris was still able to SEAMLESSLY facilitate everything that needed to happen during the reception (the dances, the line dances, cake cutting, dollar dance, bouquet giveaway, etc)... how he did it all on a delayed schedule and a hard stop at a 10pm curfew is still beyond me. I have no idea how he did that and I am still so in awe whenever I think about it (seriously, how is it possible to be that adaptive to a situation that could easily have become a disaster? Well apparently this is no big deal for Chris Andres ¯\_(ツ)_/¯). Chris's dependability and experience was a huuge weight lifted off my shoulders when it came to planning. I seriously would have been lost without his assistance. I always went into our meetings without a clue of how to express what I wanted for our wedding (I love 1920's-1950's Jazz, requested very few modern songs unless it reflected Motown and Funk, but was also okay with a dash of 90's hiphop & all of Beyonce?) but Chris helped direct all of my vague ideas & formed it into a concrete timeline with all of song choices I needed (and quite frankly forgot to think about -- y'all have no idea how much of a hot mess bride I was because planning fried my brain to liquid). The night was musically cohesive which was what I was most unsure about -- they just made it work!! I can't thank Chris enough for his patience. It was amazing to collaborate with Phil & Chris when everything started to come into focus. I was nervous about how uncertain I was about what I wanted but these guys gave me confidence and ease. I would trust these guys to make any event into a blast! Literally everyone was so so so so impressed by the energy & spark that kept the party going! If you want to throw the kind of party people will still be raving about for weeks, you gotta go with these guys. They know what they're doing, they will work with what ever kind of vibe you're going for and they will make it into gold. Just do yourself a favor here because their dependability exceeds expectations. These guys are the reason why our wedding night will forever be one of the most memorable nights of my life!!

My husband and I booked LJDJ for our wedding in October and are very happy we did. LJDJ was recommended to us after we met with a few other DJs who didn’t quite get what we were after. From our initial sit down with Ricardo, we knew he meant business and had a passion for what... Read More he does. Not only did Ricardo pay close attention to detail, he was extremely helpful with recommendations and guided us through the process without pressure. The energy Ricardo had during our meetings and phone calls were magnified the night of the wedding. His approach to the night of our wedding wasn’t as if we were just a client, but as family. Due to unexpected events a DAY before the wedding, Ricardo had no problem with adapting to a few changes which made made the night that much more enjoyable. It’s obvious his professionalism and drive to satisfy his clients have made him one of the elite entertainers in the tri-state area. Call LJDJ and ask for Ricardo, you will not be disappointed.

We were referred to Jack by a friend of mine who also hired him for her wedding. Knowing my husband DJs on the side (and very particular with what he wants), she knew Jack would be the perfect fit - and my husband approved with flying colors... A few weeks before the wedding, we... Read More met up with Jack to discuss details and I was amazed with him putting the timeline together. He immediately started going through what will happen from the moment the ceremony started until the very last song. He was throwing ideas out and we were loving every minute of it! My husband also created a mix for our guests, which Jack played and had an idea for those minutes to kind of turn it into a "club" theme - which all of the guests LOVED. It's been a few weeks and our friends and family are still raving about the music, constantly stating "your DJ was amazing!". We did a photo booth through LJDJ's as well which was a huge hit! So sorry, I forgot their names but the two people handling the photo booth were so nice and sweet and were throwing out ideas all night of what poses to do - it was great. We did a "photo booth guest book" and they were awesome about adding each and every photo our guests took into the book - and we even received the digital files a week later. Shawn - our videographer was great as well and captured every moment of the day/night! Honestly, I can go on and on but Jack made our wedding! Everyone was constantly on the dance floor. Thank you again for creating the best night of our lives! I highly recommend LJDJ's for anyone's future weddings.

Our wedding was on 9/9/17 at the Imperia in Somerset. We found LJDJs at the bridal show at the Imperia and were impressed with their lighting and Junk Truck. We already had a DJ so we only needed these 2 additional services. At our meetings with Jack, they seemed very... Read More organized and professional, telling us everything they were going to have on the Junk Truck and what they would do with the lighting. We confirmed all the details with them a few weeks before the wedding and were very excited to see everything come together. Unfortunately, neither the lighting package nor the Junk Truck was what we expected. We were told the lighting would be leaves around the room and when we showed up it was bubbles. At the time with everything going on we assumed it couldn’t be changed and it was a small detail that we didn’t think was important so we let it go. The Gobo light however was really nice. They designed it around our invitation and was exactly what we wanted. We were told in the meetings that the Junk Truck would arrive at 10pm, open at 10:30pm and stay open until 11:30pm. It would have White Castle burgers, Dunkin Donuts coffee and donuts, and bags of chips and snacks, and a couple specialty snacks that we requested since we asked them not to put all the chocolate and candy on the truck. Our DJ came up to us at 8pm and said that the food truck was there. Since it showed up so early, by the time the guests left at 10:30pm-11:00pm, the White Castle burgers were hard. When we went outside at 11:00pm, we also noticed that there was no Dunkin Donuts coffee or donuts on the truck and none of the specialty snacks requested. At that point, it was 11:00pm, the wedding was over, there was nothing we could do at that point. I reached out to the Company once we came back from our honeymoon and the response we got was just that he would look into it. Unfortunately we never heard anything back. I would love to write a glowing review for LJDJs, as we did for the rest of our vendors, but unfortunately I cannot recommend the additional services provided by LJDJs based on our experience. Based off of the other reviews I’ve seen this seems to not be the norm for this Company, so I’m not sure what happened in our case.
