Originally, we had a destination wedding planned in Puerto Rico for December 2017. However, due to the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, we found ourselves having to re-plan a wedding we had been planning for over one year, in one month. In a rush to rebook all of our vendors, Ricardo was recommended to us.
After reading his reviews and seeing his work online, we were instantly impressed. After our first phone call with him, we had no doubts we could trust him to make our wedding amazing. Ricardo’s energy came out in every interaction and was incredible on our wedding day. He had recommendations and ideas of how to make our vision reality, and over exceeded our expectations. He kept people on the dance floor from start to finish, interacted with our guests and made our wedding memorable. His passion for this industry is incredible and truly exudes in his work. Our guests are still raving about how great our DJ was! We highly recommend Ricardo for any event and can’t wait to book him again for future events!l
PERFECT! WOW! BEAUTIFUL! AMAZING! PROFESSIONAL! FUN! My wedding was this past Sunday (11.12.17) in August(3 months before my wedding) I was informed that my venue SHUT DOWN/bankrupt!!! Ricardo at LJDJs assisted me with finding a new venue and was very patient with my "meltdown". Ricardo is the BEST!!! In September Ricardo won "Entertainer of the year" and just judging by my wedding alone I understand why. From the time I met Ricardo and he was "painting the picture" of how my wedding would go, I was sold and in tears because it seemed so real/beautiful. Book with LJDJS/Ricardo, you won't be disappointed!!! People from another wedding came to our room to get his business card.....he was very involved with the crowd, EVERYONE LOVED Ricardo.....Thank you LJDJS/Ricardo!!! Mr. & Mrs. Jones appreciate you Ricardo. We had monograms, dancing on the clouds, intelligent lightning and ALL MUSIC!!! && the prices are fair too!! Book LJDJS and watch them work, it's AMAZING!!
My wife and I had very specific ideas of the kind of vibe and energy we needed at our wedding, so this was absolutely crucial to us. We made the rounds and met with several DJ companies, but Ricardo and the LJDJs team were the immediate standouts after just one meeting. The unique ideas they had, the way they talked, and their unrivaled production quality immediately seemed to gel with our own personalities and ideas, so we booked them nearly a year in advance. From then on, we knew we had nothing to worry about. Ricardo and the LJDJs team absolutely rocked our wedding and helped to make it everything we wanted it to be. They completely accommodated our requests/ideas and helped to make it a truly unique reception that was like no other wedding our friends and family had ever been to. The energy was sky-high, the music was on point and not at all lame or cheesy (which was huge for me), the layout of the evening was unique, and the production/effects were stellar. Ricardo was present and running the show all night, kept the crowd going and got everyone pumped up, but he wasn’t overbearing and never made himself out to be the center of attention. He knew when to step back and let some of the magic unfold naturally while still guiding the night along and letting his personality shine through, which are the signs of a truly great MC/DJ. Ricardo even trusted me to take over the decks to perform a mini “DJ set” for my friends/family like old times, which made for a great moment and highlight of the night for them. Overall, Ricardo and his team, which included Chris (also a great and technically proficient DJ) along with Griffon, helped us execute our wedding reception effortlessly. Ricardo is a true professional and I feel confident in saying that he and LJDJs Event Design/Entertainment can help YOU throw YOUR OWN ideal wedding party – no matter what kind of evening you’d like it to be. And most importantly, my bride couldn’t have been happier.
My husband and I booked LJDJ for our wedding in October and are very happy we did.
LJDJ was recommended to us after we met with a few other DJs who didn’t quite get what we were after. From our initial sit down with Ricardo, we knew he meant business and had a passion for what he does. Not only did Ricardo pay close attention to detail, he was extremely helpful with recommendations and guided us through the process without pressure.
The energy Ricardo had during our meetings and phone calls were magnified the night of the wedding. His approach to the night of our wedding wasn’t as if we were just a client, but as family. Due to unexpected events the DAY before the wedding, Ricardo had no problem with adapting to a few changes which made made the night that much more enjoyable. It’s obvious his professionalism and drive to satisfy his clients have made him one of the elite entertainers in the tri-state area.
Call LJDJ and ask for Ricardo, you will not be disappointed.
My husband and I booked LJDJs for our wedding in October, and it was one of the best decisions that we made. We were referred to them by our wedding venue, and they did not disappoint! I'm of the belief that the music/dj can make a break a wedding sometimes, and i still have people telling me how awesome they were MONTHS later! My husband and i even look back and realize how lucky we were to have been referred to them! They were absolutely amazing and made our wedding come to life. everyone was dancing and having the best time! They definitely know how to keep the party going!. the only downside was that our wedding had to end. I cannot say enough good things about LJDJs. We met with Jack originally and he sold us from the moment we sat down. We then have Ricardo at our wedding, and another member of their amazing team at our wedding. Ricardo is absolutely the best. I feel like I've known him forever, and he listened and provided everything that we wanted. I would re-marry my husband just to have LJDJs provide our entertainment (he would too!). If you are reading this still and haven't sent them an email or called to schedule a meeting them, then what are you waiting for!? Thank you to all the LJDJs staff, and special shout of to Ricardo!! Thank you guys for making our wedding even more special!!
Awesome work! Very responsive and eager to be the best. The overall work was fantastic. Will definitely consider recommending them to my acquaintances!!!
We got married on Sept 30, 2017 at the Palace at Somerset Park, we worked with Chris and Phil. I can truly say that they are good people. From the very beginning they were so nice, professional and listened to what we wanted for our wedding. Don't worry about pricing because they are worth every penny! We had such a fun time at our wedding, our guests were all dancing and entertained. Our guests had really good time thanks to them. The host & DJ make your wedding, I highly recommend them and wouldn't even look anywhere else! Thank you so much LJDJS for the entertainment!
We hired LJDJ's for our wedding and it was the best decision we made!!!! From the first day we walked into their office, they made us feel like family. Ricardo worked with us, and was very attentive to everything we wanted for our big day. Off the top of his head he painted a vision after hearing us, and made my wife cry on the spot. As a former Dj I was very selective about the music, knowing who was attending our wedding, and they constantly added their creative expertise to make it better. Ricardo really lives up to his title as entertainer of the year!!!!! We wanted a party and Ricardo, Junior and Eric (percussionist) definitely delivered! Alway keeping the energy up, and dropping the right tracks at the right time to keep things going. I highly recommend LJDJ's for any event!!!! Truly, class act people, and they know how to move a room!!!!

Chris and his team was amazing. From day one up until our big day, they were nothing but helpful and attentive. He was also very patient with my husband and I. We had a huge wedding party and a tremendous song list. He was able to fulfill all of our wishes. Chris, I can't thank him enough. BEST DJ/MC ever! I knew my wedding would be awesome because of his personality. From ceremony to reception, the energy at my wedding was explosive! I would recommend Chris and his team to anyone that would ask me for entertainment services. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
LJDJs are truly a gem and I couldn't have asked for a better DJ and officiant, known other than Ricardo Medrano! Throughout the entire process leading up to our wedding, Ricardo was attentive and made sure that our communication was consistent so to set the our approaching wedding day up perfectly. We even had an intense moment where our original officiant dropped last minute, and Ricardo was able to come through for the rescue. The day went beautifully - Ricardo as the officiant was a lovely and sweet treat with his anecdotes, straight into the reception, where he brought down the place! Everyone could not tell me enough that the music was amazing and they all could not stop dancing. We all even got sad the music/party had to end with LJDJs, but truly a night never forgotten thanks to their help. Thank you LJDJs and a special thanks to Ricardo - you guys are outstanding and I highly recommend their services!
LJDJs were the best at wedding. We got compliments that night, the day before how our wedding was AMAZING, and so much fun.
Our DJ was RICARDO he is the best. I have nothing but amazing things to say about him the time and effort he put into our special day was phenomenal. These people are kind sweet generous humble down to earth. You want a wedding for people to remember this is who you need to get. Ricardo will have your guests talking about your wedding for days. He will have everyone on the dance floor.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND RICARDO. Let's not also forget he won MC entertainment of the YEAR so you know you are getting the best of the best!!!!
They were very helpful and friendly through the whole process and did a great job on the day of our wedding. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to everyone. They kept the party going all night!
Our wedding was on 9/9/17 at the Imperia. We booked their lighting and Junk Truck. At our meetings with Jack, they seemed very organized and professional, telling us everything they were going to have on the Junk Truck and what they would do with the lighting. We confirmed all the details a few weeks before the wedding and were excited to see everything come together. Unfortunately, neither the lighting package nor the Junk Truck was what we expected. We were told the lighting would be leaves around the room and it was bubbles. At the time we assumed it couldn’t be changed and it was a small detail so we let it go. The Gobo light however was really nice. They designed it around our invitation and was exactly what we wanted. We were told in the meetings the Junk Truck would arrive at 10pm, open at 10:30pm and stay until 11:30pm. It would have White Castle burgers, Dunkin Donuts coffee and donuts, and bags of snacks, and a couple specialty snacks that we requested since we asked them not to put all the candy on the truck. Our DJ came up to us at 8pm and said that the food truck was there. Since it showed up so early, by the time the guests left at 10:30pm-11:00pm, the burgers were hard. When we went outside at 11:00pm, we also noticed that there was no Dunkin Donuts coffee or donuts on the truck and none of the specialty snacks requested. At that point, it was 11:00pm, the wedding was over, there was nothing we could do at that point. I reached out to the Company once we came back from our honeymoon and the response we got was just that he would look into it. Unfortunately we never heard anything back.
I would love to write a glowing review for LJDJs, as we did for the rest of our vendors, but unfortunately I cannot recommend the additional services provided by LJDJs based on our experience. Based off of the other reviews I’ve seen this seems to not be the norm for this Company, so I’m not sure what happened in our case.
Absolutely the best wedding DJ you can hire!! Jack made it an incredible night and everyone keeps telling us it was the best wedding they've ever been to. Jack threw in a song for my husbands grandma who loves to dance, and everyone circled around her singing her name. She said it was the best night of her life and won't stop talking about it. The songs we wanted were all perfectly mixed at the right time, and Jack threw in different games and announcements to keep people dancing all night long. He brought another dance coordinator who was showing people how to do the line dances, and he definitely livened people up as well. I would recommend everyone book ASAP because you don't want to miss out. The DJ is the one that makes or breaks your night, and it's what the guests will remember.
Jack seriously made our night the best night ever! I will never forget Jack for all that he did at our wedding. He was professional yet had a sense of humor from day ONE! Him and his team know exactly what they're doing. I am Peruvian, Bolivian, and Brazilian and my husband is Jamaican and Jack and Ricardo knew how to have our guests on the dance floor all night. Jack was super attentive and made sure to communicate with me throughout the night. I highly recommend them!!! After going to almost 10 different DJs... when I met LJDJs I knew I had to choose them. I was not wrong. Choosing LJDJS was one of the best decisions we have made! Thank you so much. We will forever be grateful.
LJDJ's was most definitely the best part of our wedding! Our DJs were Chris Andres and Ricardo Medrano and they kept everyone on their feet the WHOLE night. It was pretty amazing. We had so many comments that our wedding was one of the best people have ever attended and that's because of our DJs. They created a fun atmosphere and it was nice that we didn't have to do much planning wise. They know their stuff and how to get the crowd going so being able to take a back seat and not worry about the "planning" part for the music was really nice. Planning a wedding is STRESSFUL, do yourself a favor and go with LJDJs if you want to have great entertainment and not have to worry about every little detail. They legit take care of everything and have a plan A, B, and C. Best decision we made wedding wise.
Our DJs hands down made our wedding day an absolute blast. I wasn't sold on how important the DJ was for a wedding day till I got to experience what these guys were able to do. Our wedding was none stop dancing an fun and they did such a great job getting everyone hyped and having a good time. What I loved most was the variety of music that they put together, they had some of the best throwbacks like peaches and cream, it was amazing. I would definitely recommend these guys for any event that you are looking for a really good time.
LJDJs was worth every penny! From the event coordination and music selections to the MCing, they made our day extremely special and effortless! Would highly recommend Jack Bermeo and Junior Cedeno!!
The BEST of the BEST! Jack and Crystal were in charge of an extremely important part of our wedding, the music! They exceeded all of our expectations and made our wedding the best night ever. Thank you Ljdjs for the perfect presentation, outstanding entertainment, and being so personable to us and all of our guests.
Ricardo Medrano, Mike Silva, Chris Andres were absolutely AMAZING on our wedding day! Ricardo paid complete attention to detail and laid the night out PERFECTLY. He kept the party going and everyone had the nicest comments to say about our DJ at the wedding. Their hard work ethic showed tremendously throughout the whole night and they went above and beyond to provide us with exactly what we were looking for! We will never forget this night!!!

We are SO glad we went with Jack Bermeo and Crystal Vargas to keep our party going all night! They are truly the dream team and showed us and all of our guests the time of our lives. Jack effortlessly led us through the entire night and played the perfect mix of music including all of the songs I requested previous to the wedding. My husband and I danced all night long! Getting to see Crystal do her thing on percussion was such a treat for us and our guests. She even called us up and had us give it a try ourselves which was so much fun and gave everyone a good laugh! Our overall experience with LJDJs was wonderful from beginning to end and we hope to party with them again in the near future!!
If you're looking for the best DJ around for your next event, book LJDJs!!! LJDJs was the entertainment for my wedding and I am SO happy I hired them. Jack was my MC and he is the BEST...EVER! The experience they deliver is one you won't find anywhere else. Jack took the time to make an awesome remix for my husband and I's intro song - it was amazing!! He also made the wedding party intro's very personalized which I also loved. They had my wedding guests dancing all night - everyone had so much fun and told me how much they loved my DJ. On top of that, they are extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. I can't wait to use LJDJ's again in the future!
Ricardo and the entire LJDJ team were amazing. The dance floor was full all night. He was able to incorporate some traditional Croatian music into the reception for my husbands side of the family. From the ceremony music, the lighting, and overall fun atmosphere, I don't think we could have had a more perfect wedding day. All of our guest are still raving about how much fun they had and how great the music was. Ricardo interacted with everyone and knew exactly how to keep everyone happy and dancing. We can't thank the entire team at LJDJ's enough, you made our special day even more AMAZING!!!
DJ Chris Andres + DJ Audey B from LJDJ's were AMAZING!!!! Chris was very easy to work with, professional and accommodating. My now husband and I live in Jersey City and don't have a car so meeting at LJDJ's was difficult for us. Chris was able to work around our busy schedules and over the phone seamlessly. He helped us with coordinating the schedule for the day, figuring out songs for ceremony / reception. Chris played all of the songs we requested..He even mixed together traditional Albanian music with current top 40's music perfectly. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night. Thank you so much Chris and Audey. I would definitely recommend them for your wedding!!
DJ Chris Andres was great! He was very receptive to our preferences and extremely flexible (we had some last minute changes, and he modified the previously decided upon schedule at least two times). We received so many compliments on the music selection, as we didn't have your typical, mainstream song selections.
