    Still thinking about how good the music was!

    DJ Jay McElfresh made our wedding party a non-stop party! We hired him after hearing him at a friend’s wedding, even though our tastes differ greatly. We were blown away by his ability to keep the energy of the wedding so high and read the crowd so well. He was able to MC the event perfectly without being too overbearing.I also really appreciated Jay taking the time to speak to us before the wedding to make sure he knew how to pronounce the names of everyone in the wedding party. Everyone told me they loved the music and asked if we gave him a playlist. The truth was, we met with Jay 1 time and he seemed to just “get” us. He gave us a worksheet to fill out and we gave a few favorite artists, but from that he crafted an incredible playlist. One guest also told us “I could really hear everything, the sound equipment was incredible.” I cannot express enough how amazing and talented he is!! Everyone who has Jay DJ their event is extremely lucky and hiring the best.

    The most flawless part of the wedding

    Jay was unavailable the day of our wedding so he set us up with another of his DJs, Cousin Cole, and we had a perfect experience with Cole. Super easy to work with leading up to the day of, despite me knowing next to nothing about music. He incorporated our suggestions when we had them, but was happy to pitch ideas when we didn't. We were too busy before the wedding to check in at all, and yet everything about the music was completely flawless, and we were getting compliments on the music selection all night.

    Hiring Jay McElfresh is a decision that you'll never regret. He does it all. He is professional, engaging, entertaining, and organized. He thinks of everything that can go wrong ahead of time and plans ahead. We've worked AV with him on larger weddings and marveled at how he helps make a wedding a fun event for everyone, even the wallflowers.

    Jay and I recently worked together at a wedding at Current in Manhattan. Jay was an absolute pleasure - he emceed the evening wonderfully and had guests smiling and dancing all night. He looked sharp, professional and stylish (as a great DJ should) and he played songs that really made the night memorable - not just the same old wedding soundtrack! I look forward to working with Jay again!
