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 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 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 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 LJDJs for our wedding in October, and it was one of the best decisions that we made. We were referred to them by our wedding venue, and they did not disappoint! I'm of the belief that the music/dj can make a break a wedding sometimes, and i still have people telling me how awesome they were MONTHS later! My husband and i even look back and realize how lucky we were to have been referred to them! They were absolutely amazing and made our wedding come to life. everyone was dancing and having the best time! They definitely know how to keep the party going!. the only downside was that our wedding had to end. I cannot say enough good things about LJDJs. We met with Jack originally and he sold us from the moment we sat down. We then have Ricardo at our wedding, and another member of their amazing team at our wedding. Ricardo is absolutely the best. I feel like I've known him forever, and he listened and provided everything that we wanted. I would re-marry my husband just to have LJDJs provide our entertainment (he would too!). If you are reading this still and haven't sent them an email or called to schedule a meeting them, then what are you waiting for!? Thank you to all the LJDJs staff, and special shout of to Ricardo!! Thank you guys for making our wedding even more special!!
Where to begin...well first and foremost we cannot thank Jack & the entire LJDJ team enough for making our wedding day the MOST AMAZING DAY OF OUR LIVES!! From the moment we walked into the office to the time we left our reception room it felt as though we have become family with LJDJs. The work that Jack & his team puts in does not begin the week of your wedding but from the second you inquire. They live for this type of work and really put all the passion and desire they can into making your day as special as possible. Jack was our officiant & MC at the wedding and everybody is STILL talking about how amazing our ceremony & reception were. He made our ceremony the perfect combination of romantic and hilarious. During the reception, he played the perfect combination of music to satisfy all different types of listeners & dancers. Our time with LJDJs will NOT stop here because we plan to hire them for EVERY occasion here on out. We cannot thank you LJDJs enough for making our experience one-of-a-kind. We truly recommend LJDJs to everybody...YOU WILL NOT REGRET!!!
We hired LJDJ's for our wedding and it was the best decision we made!!!! From the first day we walked into their office, they made us feel like family. Ricardo worked with us, and was very attentive to everything we wanted for our big day. Off the top of his head he painted a vision after hearing us, and made my wife cry on the spot. As a former Dj I was very selective about the music, knowing who was attending our wedding, and they constantly added their creative expertise to make it better. Ricardo really lives up to his title as entertainer of the year!!!!! We wanted a party and Ricardo, Junior and Eric (percussionist) definitely delivered! Alway keeping the energy up, and dropping the right tracks at the right time to keep things going. I highly recommend LJDJ's for any event!!!! Truly, class act people, and they know how to move a room!!!! Will & Keila
My husband's Surprise 50th Birthday Party was absolutely PERFECT with the help of LJDJ's! Griffon was the most awesome DJ, who read the crowd perfectly. There were no awkward pauses. There was no music played that was inappropriate for the event. IT WAS EXACTLY what we wanted. The music wasn't so blaring so that guests couldn't talk; but just the right volume to bring fun to the event. The scavenger hunt game was a blast, too! Griffon followed the directions we laid out in the pre-party planner to a T! We've already booked LJDJ's for my daughter's Sweet 16 this coming June! I can't wait to work with Griffon again. I cannot speak more highly of Griffon, LJDJ's, and the services they provided. Griffon is worth every penny...and more
Originally, we had a destination wedding planned in Puerto Rico for December 2017. However, due to the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, we found ourselves having to re-plan a wedding we had been planning for over one year, in one month. In a rush to rebook all of our vendors, Ricardo was recommended to us. After reading his reviews and seeing his work online, we were instantly impressed. After our first phone call with him, we had no doubts we could trust him to make our wedding amazing. Ricardo’s energy came out in every interaction and was incredible on our wedding day. He had recommendations and ideas of how to make our vision reality, and over exceeded our expectations. He kept people on the dance floor from start to finish, interacted with our guests and made our wedding memorable. His passion for this industry is incredible and truly exudes in his work. Our guests are still raving about how great our DJ was! We highly recommend Ricardo for any event and can’t wait to book him again for future events!l
Amazing! Ricardo was great to work with, and listened to all of our suggestions! Everyone had a fantastic time! He was what we signed up for and more! Everyone was raving about LJDJs! I am so glad we went with them!! Not only did they Dj but we also did the awesome photo booth with them and a flower wall back drop! It was perfect! Don't hesitate book LJDJ!!!!
Our DJ was Jack Bremeo and he was the best! He meets with you and caters to your style/theme. Had the party going the whole time, very attentive, flexible and great customer service! Always reachable through email or text and responded quickly. Oh and he’s bilingual! My family and us loved him! mention he’s bilingual?!
I gave the responsibility of finding a dj to my husband and while i was nervous initially, after one meeting at the LJDJ office, all my worries went away (good job hubby!) Jack was very professional, kept us within our budget and never once tried to push upgrades on us. On our wedding day they did an amazing job, kept the energy going and made sure to fit in all of my parents song requests throughout the night. I couldn't be happier with the job they did.
LjDJ’S= AMAZING number 1 the BEST!!! About 5yrs ago one of my best friends got married and Jack did their wedding! I thought Jack did a phenomenal job! The music was great the energy was sky high on some Dragon Ball Z mixed with DMX! It was epic!!! “I told myself if I ever get married I’m using LJDJ’s!” A few months pass after my boys wedding and I’m at a friends wedding. The Dj was great as well and energy was sky high too “I thought to myself this DJ similar to Jermaine (my boy wedding) it turned out it was similar because Jack threw theirs too! I was like wow! This company is unlike any other! I gotta use them if I ever get married! Music and Energy is the most important thing to be a Dj and entertainer. The hardest thing to do is get the majority to get on the dance floor and party! That’s what I realized LJDJ’s was really good at ability to make sure everyone has a good time! 5yrs later I end up getting married!!!! Right away I called LJDJ’s and spoke to Chris Andres And Ricardo Medrano. They were very friendly and already full of energy just by speaking on the phone We had a good vibe. They asked to meet with us and so we did. The meeting went well however the price that we got was too high for our budget(weddings are expensive). Now we asked for all in with the dream package! They have other rates too but we just wanted to see all in. We said we will think about it but not sure if we can. I was disappointed cause I really wanted them cause I truly feel they are the best! But you get what you paid for I’m not saying it was high price! I’m saying for the budget I was looking for it didn’t work for me. That week however Chris gave me a call and said for us to come in and that they really want to do our wedding. They felt we all had a good vibe and will work with us to get a rate we all can agree upon. Well it happened Chirs and I worked out an agreement which I greatly appreciated and we booked LJDJ’S for our wedding!!! October 29,2017 was our wedding day! It was raining with thunderstorms! But it didn’t matter that night LJDJ’S did what I knew they would do! an Amazing and phenomenal job!!!!! The music was just what I wanted!!!!!! The energy was dragon ball z mixed with Dmx and some raggamuffin style and murder she wrote status!!! The wedding was a BLAST thanks to LJDJ’S DJ Chris Andres and DJ Audey B for doing an amazing phenomenonal job!!! Everyone had a Blast!!!!!! This company is special! I truly believe in relationship building and they truly know how to do it genuinely. They care for their clients and really do work with you to create the experience that you want! I extremely reccomend LJDJ’s for your wedding or any other event especially my Boys Chris Andres and DJ Audey B!!!!! They will make sure your experience with them will be something you and your guests will never ever forget! Thank you again so much LJDJ’S for doing our wedding I greatly appreciate it! And know that whenever I need to throw a party! I know who I’m going to call LJDJ’S!!! Number 1 the best Amazing!!!! BOOK THEM NOW!!!!!!
Wow! Jack and his staff are truly amazing! Super professional, super fun and threw curve balls even I wasn't ready for that were simply amazing! Everyone had an amazing time and it was definitely due to Jack and his ability to work a crowd!
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 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 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.
Can’t say enough good things about this company!! Jack Bermeo was amazing throughout the entire process of our wedding planning!! Even after encountering some hardships with a previous vendor, he was understanding and offered as much help as he could. The service was delivered as promised, if not better. Please check this company out if you’re looking for a full package entertainment for your wedding!! Our guests are still raving about the amazing saxophone player Katy Rodriguez and the outstanding music played by jack and his team !! The flower wall for photo booth, which was a hit !! Everyone was blown away by our intro into our reception which was primarily jacks idea and I’m so glad we agreed on it!! Amazing a million times over!!! Thanks jack !!!
As my husband and I just passed our one year, we still talk about how amazing Jack and his team was. From our first meeting with him to the last dance that day. It was the best day of our lives and Jack made that all possible. I recommend him to anyone who ask for a suggestion!
Jack and his team. Hands down the best Dj at any event. I received so many compliments and asking me for their info. He made my wedding at a barn middle of no where feel like a club in Manhattan. Everyone was dancing some people told me they were sore because they were dancing so much!
Jack and Crystal made our wedding day and we couldn't thank them enough! We booked them for our July 23rd wedding and are still getting rave reviews about their production. Jack really understood what we were going for and communicated with us throughout the entire process. He even let us add on a few extra things before the wedding such as the photo booth and video, which were fairly priced. The day of, Jack did an amazing job making sure everything ran smoothly and we had no issues with set up/clean up. I would definitely recommend their services and even have people asking about using Crystal for their upcoming events! Thanks again for making our celebration a night to remember :)
Jack and his team are absolutely amazing!! From the initial call I knew I wanted to have them as my wedding dj/cm. Jack asked a lot of great questions to make sure that our day was very personalized. I'm Polish (very Americanized) and I wanted to incorporate some polish music Jack had no issues finding and recommending Polish music for our wedding. He played songs for everyone to enjoy! He had a had creative ideas on how to make our day even more memorable. Jack and the team are hands down the best! I would highly recommend them to everyone! If you want a entertainment company to go over and beyond you'll hire LJDJ LOVE YOU GUYS!
We used LJDJs for our wedding in Tarrytown on Sunday October 8th. Jack and his team hosted and were fantastic. We carefully planned every detail and they delivered on every one an more. We heard nearly all the songs we put on our must play list and several of the request list songs, also none of the songs we requested to not be played (Well done!). Jack even played a few dance versions of songs from the ceremony, we were delightfully surprised. My mother even commented saying the music was absolutely perfect! Jack proclaimed at end of the night that we were the most lively crowd he'd hosted on a Sunday. We opted for the photo-booth and it was a huge hit, the green screen was also a nice touch. Seriously, the whole night was perfect and a huge part of it was LJDJs. Jack couldn't have been better, we couldn't recommend further!
LJDJs are truly a gem and I couldn't have asked for a better DJ and officiant, known other than Ricardo Medrano! Throughout the entire process leading up to our wedding, Ricardo was attentive and made sure that our communication was consistent so to set the our approaching wedding day up perfectly. We even had an intense moment where our original officiant dropped last minute, and Ricardo was able to come through for the rescue. The day went beautifully - Ricardo as the officiant was a lovely and sweet treat with his anecdotes, straight into the reception, where he brought down the place! Everyone could not tell me enough that the music was amazing and they all could not stop dancing. We all even got sad the music/party had to end with LJDJs, but truly a night never forgotten thanks to their help. Thank you LJDJs and a special thanks to Ricardo - you guys are outstanding and I highly recommend their services!
There aren't enough good things to be said about LJDJ's! Having seen them at other weddings, we automatically knew they'd be our wedding DJ's. From the very beginning, they were as hyped as we were about our event and gave us every option to make our wedding the party we dreamed of. Ricardo (Entertainer of the Year- woot woot!) was AMAZING. Aside from getting & keeping everyone on the dance floor, he appeared to be enjoying himself- that authenticity was felt by all of our guests! We received multiple messages about Ricardo, the music selection, the video wall, the Co2 cannon, the sparklers, just everything! The whole team who worked our wedding was professional, enthusiastic, committed to their craft and overall, great. THANK YOU for the best party, ever! You have customers for life.
Can't say enough about LJDJ's!! From the 1st moment we met with them we knew they were going to create an AMAZING night for our triplet daughters Sweet 16!! They certainly delivered!! Ricardo had the kids dancing all night long! It was a magical night the our girls will never forget! Thank you Ricardo and the entire LJDJ's team! We can't wait to celebrate another event with you!!!
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 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.
