Absolutely Wonderful!

Jay Congdon was an absolutely fantastic DJ in every way.

He is incredibly organized, easy to work with, and provides you with information that is very useful. He's responsive via email and runs a very smooth operation. His forms and song selection platform are easy to use and ensure that your event goes the way you want it to.

He went above and beyond when we needed to change the plans- he was kind, easy to work with, and very helpful. He was also sensitive to pronouncing some hard-to-read names, which for me, was a big plus!

He was an excellent MC for the night, leading us through our events in an organized and exciting way. He is a huge reason our wedding went off without a hitch and I can't thank him enough!

Hire him if you want a smooth, carefree night and an excellent DJ! We were so unbelievably happy with him!

Amazing dj

Jay is incredible! He helped us with a specialized song for our first dance and keeps people on the dance floor the whole night! He was very professional and checks in to make sure things were going the way we wanted. It would not have been such an amazing wedding without him!
