DJ Jay was incredible, all of our guests raved about how great he was and how much fun they had. Our guests didn't leave the dance floor! Jay was flexible with our needs and over-delivered upon everything we asked for! We highly recommend Jay!

We were so glad we had Marcus Ho (one of the DJs on Jay’s roster) at our wedding! The music was on-point for the whole event. Marcus just seemed to have an instinct for what people would want to hear, and even though it was a smaller wedding, the dance floor was packed the entire night. We got a ton of compliments about how much _fun_ our wedding was, and I give Marcus all the credit for that. He was a great MC as well, he got the crowd’s attention without overdoing it. It was also incredibly easy to work with Marcus before the event - he kept up with a barrage of last-minute changes and additions (including the night before) and flawlessly pronounced a bunch of unusual names.

Professional Network & Endorsements

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!

Jay is a phenomenal DJ and professional. Super helpful, attentive and talented. If you need a DJ, look no further!
