Jack is responsible for one of the best moments of our wedding
Jack was one of the best parts of our wedding. He met us a month or so beforehand to get a feel for our music tastes; what we wanted to play, what we didn’t want to play, etc. He took great care when asking about the song for our first dance; why did we pick it, when should the song start, when should he end it, etc. When it came time for the wedding Jack set up on time and was ready to go with all of his own equipment, even lighting. He kept things moving quickly during the dinner without making things feel rushed. Jack even went around to each table to make conversation and entertain before dismissing them.Sent on 03/02/2020
When it came time for my wife and I to have our first dance, we mentioned to Jack that we only wanted to dance to the first verse and chorus. But Jack let the song play on. He saw how much fun we were having, how we were enjoying our special moment together, and he let us enjoy it for as long as we could. At that moment the whole world melted away except for me and my wife. It was one of the best parts of our wedding, and we have Jack to thank for it.
Jack really came into his own once everyone joined the dancefloor. He played the perfect mix for us and our guests. Punk rock, classic pop, emo anthems, heartfelt slow songs, guest requests, and even some of our favorite heavy metal tracks. Jack played the right song at the right time every single time. We still get compliments on Jack’s music selection.
Do yourself a favor and hire Jack for your wedding. Don’t do it just because he has great music taste. Don’t do it because he’s a great entertainer. Don’t do it because he has his own gear. Hire Jack Boatman because he truly cares. Hire Jack Boatman because he is grateful to be part of your special day and wants to make it perfect for you. Whatever you do for your wedding, hire Jack Boatman.

Professional and intuitive Musician and DJ
Jack was absolutely wonderful and professional to work with. He played violin for our ceremony and was the DJ at our reception. He is extremely talented at both and we were so lucky to have him. Before the wedding he met and sat down with us to go over timelines, key songs, the contract, and musical preferences. He is familiar with a broad variety of music and was able to match the mood well throughout the reception. For the ceremony he worked well with our organist and my brother on the clarinet as well. We highly recommend him for either service but especially recommend him for anyone looking for both a musician and DJ.Sent on 09/02/2020

You won't be disappointed with Jack Boatman as your DJ!
When planning our wedding, and keeping in mind our fun, energetic, rockstar personalities, we were certain that we wanted to find vendors that matched those same traits. Being two brides we felt like we could think outside of the box to make our special day our own so we didn't necessarily make a normal checklist nor did we do things in order in the traditional sense.Sent on 03/02/2020
Our DJ was one of the last things for us to finalize! Music is very important to us, I still make my wife "mix tapes" with songs that hold a special meaning about us as a couple or as us as individuals. So when finding the perfect DJ for our wedding day we weren't going to settle! We actually had a live performer for part of our day, a friend of my wife's from high school, and he said "hey, I have this friend that I work with who is a great up and coming DJ and I think he would fit perfectly with you two!" Relying on his recommendation, we had a meeting with Jack and felt instantly comfortable with him and felt at ease with his confidence and also the fact that he wasn't afraid to ask a lot of questions to make sure our day was going to be perfect!
Fast forward to our wedding day and Jack arrived looking dapper in his suit and had his DJ booth set up and ready with plenty of time to spare. The music he played was PERFECT for us and our personalities and there were always people on the dance floor because who could resist great music?! His lighting setup seemed to dance with each song, his wireless mic worked perfectly for speeches, he spoke perfectly when announcing us, he played a great mix of songs and was able to read the crowd to seamlessly transition into another song to keep people moving and having fun!
From start to finish, Jack was just an overall joy to work with! If you want a DJ who will definitely bring the fun and who has enough "pizzazz" to get the crowd involved then you need Jack Boatman Music Services! My wife and I couldn't be happier with our choice and we would pick Jack again in a heartbeat if we could do it all over again!
