Amazing Party, Great Music
Johnny threw an amazing party at our wedding in July. He was on top of planning and preparation from day one and it made for an amazing event. He captured my husband’s and my vibe perfectly and the guests were raving about him all night. We would definitely invite him back for another event in the future.Sent on 09/06/2019

AMAZING! DJ Jonny did my January 2018 wedding. It was an Orthodox Jewish wedding and he has all the latest Hebrew/Israeli music for the Hora. He is reliable and accomadating. He can read the crowd and play accordingly. Highly recommend and will use him again for any future celebrations!Sent on 02/05/2018

We were very pleased with D.J. Johnny Stuart. He's a very nice guy, easy to communicate with, and organized (he and the marrying couple outlined a detailed schedule for the evening). I, (MOB), called him a couple of weeks before the wedding and was very clear about our not wanting the music to be so loud that our guests would suffer hearing loss by the end of the evening (which is too often the case). He understood exactly what I was saying and assured me he would not blast the music. He didn't. The adults were happy; the younger people were happy. It all worked out very well. He coordinated with an Armenian band that was playing that evening as well and they alternated seamlessly. A couple of days after the wedding, he let us know that we had overpaid him and he was quick to return the money. I recommend D.J. Johnny Stuart without hesitation. You will not be disappointed!Sent on 07/14/2017

We had a great experience working with Johnny! My husband is a musician and had a lot of opinions on our music - he gave Johnny a list of probably 50 songs he wanted worked into the night, and Johnny was able to play almost all of them and mixed them in a super fun way that kept the party going. Johnny also gave us a lot of ideas about what might work for the music, and helped us think through the flow of the night. Night of, he also went above and beyond, last minute finding a super-long cable to help my sister in law with her toast - she wanted to play songs off her phone, which we didn't know in advance, and Johnny came through to make it happen. Highly recommend!Sent on 07/12/2017

DJ Johnny Stuart is the best DJ ever! He DJ'ed both mine and my sister's wedding and he was amazing. Got the party going immediately and was absolutely wonderful to work with. He really followed through with all of my requests and was really helpful with suggestions when I needed them. Had the wedding our dreams thanks to Johnny!!Sent on 09/22/2017

We could not have been happier with DJ Johnny. He kept or wedding guests engaged all night without overdoing it on the mic. We have an amazing high-energy dance party with the dance floor packed the entire night. He also did an amazing job of mixing music from our two cultures (Portuguese and Indian)- ultimate fusion. I love a good party and he did not disappoint. Highly recommend is an understatement.Sent on 08/23/2016

Awesome!!! It was a great experience from the time we met Johnny several months before the wedding all the until our wedding night! He absolutely nailed the entire thing! He kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night and NO ONE wanted to leave! We wish we could have extended our wedding a few more hours!! Do yourselves a favor and book his A.S.A.P.! Thanks Johnny for making our night amazing!Sent on 07/08/2016

From start to finish, Johnny was an absolute pleasure to work with! Out of all the DJ's we interviewed, he was one of the only ones who actually listened, and was always quick to respond via phone or email.Sent on 12/18/2015
We sat down with him to give him a list of (1) songs we love and (2) songs we absolutely hate, and from that he crafted outrageously good dance sets. He also worked with us to build a timeline of the night so he knew when to step in and emcee, when to keep the mood low-key, and when to pump it up and absolutely blow the roof off of the place!
I would recommend him again in a heartbeat, especially to any couples looking to fill the dance-floor and keep the party going all night long!

DJ Johnny is the ultimate professional - he has years of experience and clearly loves being a DJ. This really makes all of the difference at an event as important as your wedding.Sent on 10/04/2015
For my husband and I - music was very important to our wedding. We wanted to have a fun party and knew music would either help make that happen or ruin it. From the first time I talked to Johnny on the phone to our in person meeting, Johnny was clearly interested in understanding "our vision" for our wedding vs. just having one style that he pushes on everyone. I was confident he genuinely wanted to create the perfect night for us and listened to what that meant for us. We had some concerns as our guests were coming from a wide variety of places and had a wide variety of musical tastes, but we felt that DJ Johnny would be up to the task.
Leading up to the even Johnny was available to chat whenever we needed to chat and helped us get organized with our "must plays" and "never play" songs. We certainly had a lot of input in our music, but when we were stuck, like on our ceremony music, Johnny was there with the perfect suggestions. By my wedding day, music was one thing I just wasn't worried about.
Our actual wedding day went even better than I could have imagined. Ceremony music was flawless and even our cocktail hour music was great. But the reception was where Johnny really shined. Sure, we'd gone over a bunch of songs we thought would work, but Johnny really read the crowd and adapted to maximize the fun and keep the most people on the dance floor for the longest amount of time (which was our priority). Not to mention, the entire evening Johnny looked like he was having as much fun as our guests! I think this is really what makes him a great DJ - he really wants your wedding to be everything you ever dreamed of and genuinely works his hardest to make that happen for you

DJ Johnny was absolutely amazing at our wedding this past weekend in the Hamptons. He understood what we wanted and expected from our first meeting. He was easy to work with in order to orchestrate the music for the atmosphere we wanted to create. He is super passionate about what he does, and that shows through in his work. He played music during cocktail hour, dinner, and then dancing. Each part had music that was different from each other but fit the mood perfectly. During dancing, Johnny kept everyone on their feet the entire time. I have never seen this at a wedding- people didn't want the night to end. Since the wedding, we have heard from many people it was the most fun wedding they had ever been to, and I think that is largely due to the music. I would highly recommend him and can't wait to throw another party so we can work together again!Sent on 10/17/2014

We were so lucky that we found Johnny as our wedding DJ at Hyatt. It was a cultural and western combined wedding and my families and in-laws came all the way from China to attend. We all had such a great time on the wedding night. Johnny is such a pleasure to work with and he is very responsive, professional and corporative through our entire music list preparation and the wedding. He did both ceremony and reception part and all my families and friends joined for dancing and it was really incredible! Highly recommend to all of you guys who are looking for a great DJ. Both my husband and I want to say thank you so much to Johnny for such a wonderful wedding! THANK YOU!Sent on 10/04/2014

Johnny Stuart is hands down, amazing. From our first contact to the actual event, my fiance (now wife!) and I had absolute trust in our wedding DJ. He was incredibly responsive, answered any question we had and, of course most importantly, delivered in spades on the day of the event.Sent on 10/30/2014
DJ Johnny delivered us a top-notch, fun, incredible party. He incorporated our desired playlist with ease and professionalism and also acted as a de facto MC when needed. Johnny Stuart is a master at his business and my wife and I have no hesitation recommending him for whatever and whenever a party needs to happen.
Johnny was so easy to work with - no BS no put-offs - he displayed a singular desire to deliver to us the experience we wanted. We had the time of our lives and DJ Johnny was a huge part of that.
In short, he knows his stuff, knows how to get folks on their feet, and will never, ever disappoint. If our experience is any benchmark, one would be foolish not to hire him for any event.

I have the best things to say about Johnny. He was the utmost professional from our first meeting. He is very diligent and timely - he kept me on track with all the needed paperwork and itinerary. We had traditional dancers with announcements where timing was crucial for guests' surprises and he adhered to everything to the microsecond! Amazing - he promised he would b/c of his experience in fashion and he DELIVERED!!!!! The guests loved him too - so many compliments! He also complied completely with my playlist and do-not-play list and made sure he understood everything in advance!Sent on 09/17/2014
Kenneth · Married on 05/23/2014
We got married in NYC in may, but organised the whole thing from Ecuador, South America. He recommended places where we could have our wedding, along with a lot of tips four our big night. It was a very singular wedding, since guests flew in from all around the world, making it a very diverse and multicultural event. The place he personally helped us pick turned out to be amazing, the food was great, but the music was the central entertainment. Everybody felt connected to the music, and Johnny created an energetic environment full of dance and laughter. We gave him a list of the music we wanted, and he mixed it to perfection. We absolutely recommend him for anyone looking for the greatest wedding DJ!Sent on 09/24/2014

DJ Johnny was very helpful and responsive during the preparations leading up to our wedding in Jersey City, NJ in May 2014. He has a vast knowledge of song styles and can match what you want your overall theme to be perfectly with his choice of songs. He also seamlessly weaved in the specific songs we wanted to include in our reception and ceremony. Johnny was expert in coordinating our live singer with her needs of music tracks and sound. Johnny had the perfect mix of upbeat and slow songs and knew exactly how and when to play them to add to the overall success of our day. Johnny has done several large events for us in the past few years from 60- 200 people and has always been professional and amazingly helpful and fun! We are a gay couple and it was very important for us to have a DJ that would be excited about working with us to create a special day. DJ Johnny came thru in every way possible and we would highly recommend him and his services to any couple looking to have a great experience. There is only one DJ and his name is....Johnny Stuart!Sent on 06/28/2014

Johnny did an awesome job at our wedding in September in Montauk!!Sent on 10/03/2013
First, during our preparation period, Johnny checked in with us regularly to discuss the day and agenda. Because we had so much stuff going on, we were staying behind big time!! Thanks to Johnny for staying on top of it. We are supper appreciative!
In addition, he was able to grasp exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a chill and not too traditional flow of the enter wedding. He gave us lots of awesome suggestions!
On the day, he was super on time. Played exactly what we were looking for. Our guests especially loved his deep voice :) We had an awesome day Johnny thanks so much!!

DJ Johnny kept the party going all night!!Sent on 09/12/2013
He was easy to work with, super flexible when we were scheduling meetings, had as many prep conversations with us as we needed, put together a detailed timeline with every song we wanted to play for all of the key moments, and did a great job with music at the cocktail hour, throughout dinner, and then had people on the dance floor until 2am!! Even our parents and older relatives were dancing.
DJ Johnny is well worth his fee and THEN SOME! Don't waste your money on a huge band when all you need is one amazing DJ!

My husband and I could not be happier that we found DJ Johnny! Johnny was the DJ at our wedding last weekend, and I can honestly say that everyone had the time of their lives! The dance floor was packed from start to finish, and Johnny put together an amazing play list.Sent on 09/01/2013
Johnny was so much fun to work with from start to finish - he has a great energy, and he was also so responsive to all of my questions and requests. He worked his best to make sure that we were 100% happy with his services, and the wedding was a big hit, in large part thanks to him!
If you want a great party where guests will dance all night, Johnny is definitely the way to go!!

I have to start by saying that I don't usually posts reviews, and I'm also not easily pleased. BUT, I remember thinking during the wedding, "Oh my god this is AMAZING, I have to post something!" The dance floor was packed from start to finish the entire time. Everyone from younger friends whom I expected to dance, to my 70 year-old mom and relatives of all ages from different countries had so much fun. We had two distinct "cultures" represented and he somehow found songs that made everyone beyond happy. It was like an entire night of those songs where you just have to get up and dance. I heard, "Where did you find this guy? He's GREAT!" from everyone both during and after the wedding! We truly had the best night, better than we even imagined and Johnny was at the helm and as excited as we were. The wedding reception went 2 hours longer (!) because we were having so much fun and it was no problem for him - nothing was! He also didn't let just anyone to grab the mic to make a speech without our approval, which I appreciated. Wedding planning can be stressful and Johnny could not have made it any easier- the consummate professional from start to finish. He got us organized on other aspects too and felt like a wedding planner!Sent on 11/23/2012
During our DJ search we met with part-timers from entertainment companies who ALL pushed the "lighting package." We wanted a classy and sophisticated - but still very fun - wedding and thank god we found Johnny who knew without asking that we did not want strobe lights! He did the ceremony music too which was great. He responded to my emails seemingly immediately and we're SO glad we found him. It was more like he was a friend who happened to be a fantastic DJ than someone we hired - not an easy find.
Simply put, we looked around A LOT and you won't find a more organized, professional, responsive, and enthusiastic DJ anywhere. It was really the most fun night ever because of him. I don't remember doing anything but dancing!

I did a TON of research on DJ's when planning my wedding because the music/dancing was the most important part for me next to the food. I hired a wedding planner to help me through the decision making progress and called/researched about 10 different DJ's that she suggested. Johnny was the ONLY one that seemed as excited as I was about my wedding. His confidence and enthusiasm about music were ultimately what made me decide that he was by far the best choice. His take on being a DJ was so different then anyone else that I had spoken to. His focus was getting to know me and my fiance on a personal level so that he could design the evening that would make us dance the night away and have the time of our lives....and we did. By mixing the music from old to knew, all of our guests were on the dance floor from the start and he seamlessly blended the songs so that there was NEVER a dull moment. It took all my strength to walk off the dance floor even for just a moment because I was having the best time dancing with everyone. Johnny left us with lasting memories of a perfect evening full of fun, laughs, and non stop dancing. His excitement and enthusiasm is contagious and shows through his music. To all the future brides reading this review...when you have confidence with the people you choose to be at your wedding, it takes a huge amount of stress off your shoulders because they take care of it, have everything under control and DELIVER. I highly suggest Johnny if you want a DJ that does exactly what he says he's going to do...listen to your vision, communicate communicate communicate and create the most amazing evening for you and your guests. Its two days after our wedding and I have friends and family still telling us that our wedding was the most fun they have had dancing the night away....thanks to Johnny.Sent on 09/17/2012

We met Johnny through a friend who recommended him after seeing him DJ an event for the NY Brazil Foundation. Johnny met with us several times and made sure to incorporate all our ideas for our wedding--big and small. Our biggest requirement was providing a mix of music, since my (now) husband has French family, and I have Taiwanese family, so it certainly wasn't an easy task. We gave a ton of "required" songs to make sure it would appeal to everyone, and Johnny willingly worked off our song list to make sure any additional choices fit with ours (and even followed our extensive "do not play" list!). The night of our wedding reception, when the first song came on, the dance floor was PACKED. Literally. My mother-in-law said she'd never seen her father dance, and he was on the dance floor. I've never seen my parents dance, and they were kicking up a storm. We had people telling us afterwards that they'd never seen the dance floor that packed at a wedding before. Suffice to say, we were incredibly impressed with Johnny's skills--he did a fabulous, memorable job--so much so that days after our wedding, we had several people request his playlist! Thanks again, Johnny!Sent on 09/22/2012

Where do I begin? I knew the instant that I met Johnny that our wedding would be amazing: full of life, full of love and full of DANCING! Our dance floor was never empty, people are still talking about the playlist and what an amazing job he did. Johnny is world-renowned and has worked with the top people in the industry-he makes you feel like a superstar and his attention to detail makes what would otherwise be stressful (as the planning process is!) into a journey of excitement and joy, breathlessly waiting (as you've danced your a** off at this point) for song after after song to be played. Johnny's repertoire of music is unparalleled and this coming from a music aficionado who has 20,000 songs on her Ipod! I could not have asked for a better DJ and for those of you who know the impressions that people leave with after your wedding revolve around food and music, your mind will be put at ease and you will have the time of your life at your wedding. Thank you so much Johnny - it was the most magical day!Sent on 08/14/2012
