John is the absolute man

Off the bat, John and his co-DJ, Noriel, were incredible. We couldn't have been more lucky to have seen DJ by CJ setting up for a wedding while we were touring our venue. From our first interaction over the phone, it was clear John absolutely loves what he does. We were immediately confident he was the guy for the job, and we were right to be. I really do not believe that the experience, professionalism, and enthusiasm he brought throughout the planning process could be matched elsewhere. We couldn't be happier with our decision to go with DJ by CJ. Nothing but gratitude and respect for a great experience, and a great master of ceremonies!

Fantastic DJ

John and Noriel were the DJs for our wedding and they were fantastic. John was great before the wedding as well and really took the time to get to know us. We had a video call with him a few weeks before our wedding where he went over the timeline for the day and how everything was going to play out. IT was very reassuring to hear how he had everything all scheduled and planned out. He took the time to ask us how to properly pronounce our wedding party's names to make sure he introduced them correctly which was very thoughtful. He was also very accommodating on the few days prior to our wedding and was able to incorporate the few changes last minute.

On the day of our wedding Noriel and John worked together very well. Again, John was quick to think on his feet and was able to incorporate changes without a hiccup. A DJ review would also be incomplete without mentioning their equipment. The sound was great throughout our venue, he worked well with the staff to set up his gear in two locations to make sure he was able to capture the ceremony audio and be ready for our reception party shortly after.

We were very happy and would definitely recommend DJ by CJ

10 stars!!!

DJ by CJ seriously made our wedding one to never forget! We wanted a party and they exceeded our expectations! Leading up I was able to ask hundred questions, he created and reviewed our music list and truly made it so special, and so us! My husband & I also loved the fact they come with 2 Dj鈥檚 so wherever John was, his partner was playing music & we never had awkward silences. I would recommend him over & over again! They also were affordable!

DJ by CJ was awesome to work with! They were kind, flexible with changes, and easy to communicate with. They are more than happy to work with and accommodate any other vendors (bands/singers) that the couple wanted. They have an assistant with them at all times to help coordinate entrances. Everything runs smoothly and the music always gets guests up on their feet dancing! My bride's have nothing but great things to say!
