I am comfortable playing all genres of music at any style of party and can provide multiple sound systems should your event take place over several areas.

A dream to work with!
James was a pleasure to work with through and through. We wish all of our vendors worked at the caliber of James! He took our music suggestions and helped set the tone for our entire wedding. From our 3 year old niece to 96 year old grandma, everyone raved at how great the music was (and we have very specific taste.) Our wedding was a mash-up of Chinese and Jewish traditions, old and new, and James seamlessly helped us pull it off while making it fun! There was a snag (completely our venue's fault), so James had much less time than expected to set up, he set up in time without any complaints. He's an overall music wizard, and we love him!Sent on 04/15/2019

Best decision we made
James was the first vendor we booked, and I’m SO GLAD we were able to get him. He’s a total pro with amazing taste in music who knows how to read the crowd. His range is broad, and he can play everything from old school hop hop to esoteric indie to yacht rock. He played MC at the wedding and brought a very chill, cool, fun vibe. He really puts in the time and attention to make sure your day is awesome. He gives you a questionnaire to fill out and comes to meet with you in person a couple times before the day. He clearly knows the best run of show and gives very helpful guidance. It was SO much easier to work with the actual DJ, and not some booking company (which I found overly pushy and added no value).Sent on 03/17/2019

Look no further!! We first reached out to James in April 2018 for a December 30 wedding at the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He was quick to respond and very easy to engage with leading up to our big day. James was incredibly thorough on the first call, answering almost every question we had before we asked. He won us over with his thoughtful attention to detail, and was mature and professional every step of the way – AND a TON of FUN! His ability to read the room and adjust his song choices to encourage dancing and keep the party going as the night progressed was an art in and of itself. All of our guests loved him!! We received so many compliments on how amazing our DJ was during and after the wedding. He was also a very good MC and kept the whole night on track. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for the best DJ ever!
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.
