Don't question it, hire James!
In one word, James Mulry is a professional. He was more than a DJ for us at our wedding at 501 Union, as he helped plan the timeline of our wedding day, worked with our vendors so all were in sync, and made sure our officiant, ceremony musicians, and speech givers all had the necessary equipment and set-up to be successful. Most importantly, James was a killer DJ. He worked very closely with us to incorporate our musical tastes and helped guide us through what works and doesn't work in weddings. In addition, he was a very calming voice when it came to our uncertainties in regards to what music to play during our wedding and was very flexible to whether we had strong preferences or not. During the reception, the dance floor was rocking throughout the night and he seamlessly flowed through music that the crowd was feeling, while keeping within the guidelines we gave him. All in all, we can't recommend James enough, and you won't regret booking him for your special day!Sent on 03/05/2020

Diamond in the rough
This guy...this guy is the best. He just is. I mean look, you should go with a DJ you click with, and you'll know by meeting with and talking to them for the first time. But we definitely clicked with James, and he was perfect for us. Music was hugely important to us, and his playlist was totally not the canned, forgettable list you get at every wedding. We have eclectic tastes that range from indie to pop to punk to hip hop, and he weaved everything together seamlessly that satisfied all generations (especially the young folks, which was what we asked for). Our overall timeline was running late (not his fault...we had some long speeches), and he rightly suggested that we extend the dance party 30 minutes, since it felt like it was just hitting its stride, and he was right. He judged the energy perfectly, and the dance party was unforgettable. He was so attentive and he is passionate about what he does. He hits that perfect balance of professionalism and quirky fun...we couldn't possibly have been happier, both in the planning process and on the day. He is amazing, different, intelligent, genuinely a music nerd...if you love music, you have to go with him.Sent on 12/12/2019
For reference: We had a large backyard/garden wedding at a private property in a tent in Bridgehampton, NY. He was knowledgable about what would be required for the sound system, and he worked well with our wedding planner as far as coordinating the flow of the reception.

Hire James for your wedding (seriously, hire him)
We got married at Housing Works Bookstore on 3/7, and I could not be more glad we hired James as our DJ. He had our guests dancing for three hours straight, and read the room perfectly to know what to play, when to pick up the pace, and when to slow it down. He was so good multiple friends, mid-dancing, came over to us to say "This DJ is AMAZING! Who is he?!". Friends were texting us days after the wedding trying to recreate his playlist and joking "#DJJamesForPresident".Sent on 03/18/2020
Beyond what an amazing job he does the night of, he was also so helpful during wedding planning. He's organized, thorough, and helped us create our timeline for the evening in such a way to keep the party flowing seamlessly.
We really appreciated the thoughtful and generous way James works. When I was stressed and overwhelmed with planning, when I talked to James I would leave feeling calmer, completely secure that he would help make our wedding amazing. He gave us suggestions for recessional and processional music when we were stuck, made sure to play songs from a relative's album that we had requested, and checked in with us the night of to give us a heads-up before speeches. If you're getting married in NYC, hire James!!!
James is straight-up, THE BEST. Professional and fun- he's a dream to work with. If you want to have an epic party, DJ James is your guy.
