Whether your event is casual or formal, raucous or subdued, I will work closely with you to customize the music around your specific requests and tastes. 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.

Simply the best
We had our wedding the Sunday before Labor Day on private property outside the boroughs, and James killlllllled it!!! The planning was super easy, enjoyable, and organized; from our initial meeting a year ago, through a run through of logistics with Gary at 74 Events via telephone, to our final in-person meeting a month ago with both of them. We had a ton of super-specific requests, and they were all honored; James used phenomenal judgement on all additional tracks, read the room perfectly, and kept the vibe en pointe the entire evening. Around 40 guests planned a flash mob, in secret, to some high-quality Tina Turner and coordinated with James (who blew up inflatable saxophones, and stashed behind his gear) to nail it. Cannot say enough good things about these dudes...Sent on 09/10/2019

If you're worried about guests dancing, hire James!
My husband and I got married in March 2019 at 501 Union and went with James Mulry as our DJ. James was so great and really got everyone dancing. We also had a few very specific requests that James was able to accommodate easily for us, including finding the perfect music for our tea ceremony and making a small edit to our first dance song.Sent on 06/02/2019
James also really balanced our own taste in music with that of our guests’ and gave us some truly great memories out on the dance floor. If you’re considering James, go for it!!

A guaranteed party!
James had previously dj'd two weddings we attended, so we knew that he'd be our #1 and only choice. Not only did we love the music that he played, but our friends were emphatic that his approach to the process meant that we were in the best hands possible.Sent on 07/26/2019
He was a knowledgeable, communicative, and a calming presence during a frenetic time in our lives. We had a million things to worry about, and the music was never one of them. Having James was both a source of reassurance and excitement the whole way though.
Quite simply, James makes the event a party that everyone enjoys. He's a genuine pro that knows how to read a room, pace the day, and give everyone something to dance to. In the early/middle part of the reception he sparked the energy while being mindful of giving older guests some familiarity to get them involved. As the reception progressed and the crowd got younger, he ramped up the bangers and made sure no one sat down til the last song was done.
Over the course of a 6 hour reception, he might have had to 'bail out' of one song. The venue owner, and bartender, who have combined for thousands of career events, both said they've never seen a group of wedding guests have so much fun.
While we're both in the throws of post-wedding sadness/relief, my wife and I know that when the next of our friend group gets engaged, James will be there in what's become an amazing wedding tradition for us all.
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.
