    Made Our Whole Night!

    Hiring Jay as our wedding DJ was by far the best decision we made! He was so responsive and thorough about understanding our taste in music and the vibe we were going for. He had 2 separate calls with us and sent us a comprehensive music worksheet so he could be as aligned with us as possible. We wanted everyone to be on the dancefloor all night and Jay. Did. Not. Disappoint! The amount of people that have reached out to us specifically praising Jay is crazy! Except that it's not because he did that good of a job - I even noticed one or two times where he seamlessly transitioned out of a song that he could tell people weren't feeling as much into a new song that pumped everyone up! We didn't want any of the typical "cheesy" songs to be played and Jay was on the same page as us - he even perfectly delivered on a perhaps odd request that we had a few pop-punk rock songs of his choosing played at our after party. When he played those songs, the whole dancefloor went wild. It's something I'll never forget! Thank you again so much, Jay, for making our night truly perfect and unforgettable!

    Jay killed it

    Jay came through our wedding with an awesome set up and great tunes that really set the vibe for the whole night. Music killed throughout and the dance floor was poppin' all night long - great job at sneaking in some bride/groom requested gems and keeping the dance floor going all night. Awesome guy.

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!
