    Superb, knowledgeable, professional...

    PJ did an excellent job at my wedding. He is trustworthy and easy to work with. He is professional and highly qualified. I knew I was going to be in great hands since the first time I ever called him. I loved the way he spoke to me, I felt as if I knew him. I felt so comfortable. He completely understood my vision, style and type of music I wanted. There are so many great things to say about him but long story short...I highly recommend him and his crew!!

    August 2021 Wedding Officiant and DJ

    We chose PJ to be our officiant and DJ for our wedding. He put together an excellent ceremony for us that was exactly our style. And the music for the rest of the night was great too! We highly recommend PJ for your next event

    Excellent service and communication

    PJ was an excellent DJ for our wedding and was wonderful to work with during all the pandemic uncertainty. Leading up to our event we had to postpone twice and he was incredibly accommodating and great at keeping us informed of his availability, we were so fortunate that we'd committed to him early in our process.
    At our wedding he was the perfect amount of charming without stealing the show. His introductions were clear and easily heard by everyone. He was friendly and welcoming. He responded to our wedding music goals and allowed for "requests within reason" which was a perfect blend of gracious to our guests and aware of the overall needs of the party. PJ had previously DJ'ed for both my brother's wedding and my sister's wedding. I had high hopes and he met them. I would highly recommend him and Essential Sounds Entertainment for any event!
