Our Guests Can't Stop Talking about the Music
Music was an important aspect of our wedding for us and Jay truly made it a perfect night of music, dancing, and fun! Everyone kept talking about how awesome our DJ was and we could not have agreed more!Sent on 08/13/2019
Jay met with us and got an understanding of what we wanted and then was also so attentive to what our guests were feeling that night. Guests of all ages were up on the dance floor! There were so may sing-a-longs on the dance floor and some crowd surfing to the Cranberries sprinkled in haha!!! My husband and I didn't leave the dance floor once! If you don't want your average cheesy MC type wedding and just want to have fun with your friends and family, Jay is the way to go!

Smartest decision of our wedding
Wow. WHERE TO BEGIN. I worked two weddings with Jay in Brooklyn (I'm a wedding photographer) and knew he was going to be my DJ before I was even engaged. I even asked him DURING the first wedding (again, before I was engaged) if he would travel to Philadelphia to DJ my future wedding.Sent on 07/26/2019
Trust me when I say this-Jay is the best. Stop reading reviews and just book him!!! I've only ever worked with one DJ that even comes close to being as good as Jay.
Leading up to the wedding he was hilarious, professional, honest and just made the experience so easy. Throughout the wedding, I kept saying "how did he do that?! he's so good!!!" when he would transition from one song to another that in my mind wouldn't necessarily make sense but, when he did it, it was perfect. There wasn't a single weird transition or awkward silence, and there was definitely no corny MC-ing. All our guests loved him. I'm without a doubt going to continue to recommend him to my couples whenever I get the chance.

Jay was amazing! Totally got our vibe and played all our favorite stuff. Great to chat with him beforehand to give him the run of show and a list of our requested songs. Couldn’t recommend him more highly!Sent on 07/29/2019
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!
