    Great DJ!! Communicates well & is knowledgeable!!

    JJ was great! He communicated well and helped the night go smoothly. He read the crowd very well and knew what music to play. We gave him a list of various kinds of music, and he transitioned everything so well that it didn’t feel awkward when moving to a different type of song. I liked the fact that he offered payment plans! He made planning convenient and less stressful so that when the day came, I didn’t have to do anything.

I have worked with JJ three times, and all three he was great! He gets on the mic, and gets people moving. He keeps the flow going, and as a photographer it makes my job easier because everyone is smiling!
