"James was a huge reason the party was a success. Both my wife and I are musicians and music lovers and having fun, engaging music was really important to us. We discussed a loose song list with James, but also gave him the freedom to bring what he thought would work well, and help get people dancing.
There were multiple generations at our wedding (as there often are) and what I loved is that James was clearly watching the crowd and coaxing people out with songs and genres they recognized. Because he's experienced, he understands how to continue w/ themes when they were successful, and then move on when the time is right. On a personal level, he truly wants the night to go well, and understands how important the day is for you. He played one song that I'd only mentioned once in passing during one of the set list conversations we'd had.
There honestly isn't anything I'd ask him to do differently, in retrospect. I would definitely hire him again. He's conscious of the mood, fun, funny, ego less and well mannered. He'll make you look good."

"I honestly can't say enough good things about James. He's professional and prepared, which is something I picked up on our first meeting to discuss our event. He has a lot of experience tailoring unique experiences to the couples he works with, and helped us create a wedding vibe that was truly our own.
Since we sat down and went over the music play list prior to the event, I knew more or less what to expect. However, he was invaluable in helping to achieve the optimal flow of our ceremony and reception, and was able to read the crowd well, keeping the floor lively and fully packed. He had to mix Russian songs and old Euro pop with tango and 80s tunes, and 90s alt rock, not easy to keep a crowd going on such diverse tracks!
Everybody I spoke to after the wedding made special mention of our DJ and how great the music and dancing was. He was unobtrusive but truly instrumental to the success of the evening. I can't recommend him enough."

"James was amazing for our wedding! He's such a good crowd reader - he really was able to sense the energy and vibe from the crowd and got my reception going! We even threw in a few surprise curve-balls for him that evening - we decided the night before to add a lion dancing troupe to our reception entrance, and he tastefully introduced the troupe and our wedding party. I love his style - it is very tasteful, definitely not the over the top and in your face type that would detract from the main focus. My friends who attended the wedding have asked for him for their upcoming weddings because they had such a blast dancing at our event."
