About this pro

How does your business stand out?

You are our #1 concern. We named our company Your Way Entertainment And Productions because it's your party and the only way you should have it is YOUR WAY. We do a free of charge consultation with all of our clients regardless of how big or small their event is to make sure things run smoothly and meet their expectations. We are always professional, we will always arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start time of your event, we dress appropriately, and we always bring back up gear just in case of an accident. We also have djs on call in the event that your dj has an emergency and needs to cancel. If something comes up and you need to cancel your event, we'll honor our price and work with you on a "rain date." There's not much we can't do so feel free to ask as many questions as you like. Having a party at a campground with no electricity? We'll bring a generator and party until the sun comes up! We love what we do and if you're not happy neither are we. We will always go the extra mile so that you don't have to. Need us to produce your wedding party entrance music before the actual wedding? Need a song that's popular only in Thailand? We'll make it happen at no additional charge. Not all djs are created equally and sometimes going cheap yields a lackluster and frustrating outcome. At the same time, the most expensive dj with the super cool looking equipment can also leave you unfulfilled and with an empty wallet. Unlike doctors, plumbers, or electricians, there is no licensing or certification for djs. As a result there is no guarantee as to how good they will actually be. That's why all of our djs have been through a rigorous training program to ensure they have an extensive knowledge of music from all genres, dj techniques, and customer service. Our djs can adapt to any environment regardless of the music tastes. We are experienced, reasonable, and fair. Our office staff will quote you a fair price and we'll never try to sell you a package that you don't need just to make money. In fact we'll often ask what your budget is and do our best to give you the most bang for your buck. We're open 24 hours 365 days per year. Call us anytime, we're here to help. We have a 100% satisfaction rating. We have also performed at over 20,000 events and have yet to receive a complaint.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

We never feel like we're at work. We get to provide joy and excitement to people on the regular basis! It's an awesome feeling.

    Working with Thomas from Your Way Entertainment was a great experience and we would highly recommend them. From our initial phone call to the day of our wedding every detail was taken care of by Thomas. He checked in with us during the wedding to make sure we were happy, adjusted easily to any changes we requested and made sure to make us feel special. Our guests all commented on how great the DJ was and we feel we got an exceptional product with Your Way Entertainment.

    Thomas is a true professional from consultation to event day. And his love for music shines through in everything he does. Our guests raved about the music ... all of it; from ceremony to cocktail hour through dinner and on the partying! He kept the day moving to ensure we got in all the must have dances and speeches. I appreciated his honest and fair pricing; no nickle and dime games with him! We wanted someone who could get people up and dancing, play some of our absolute favorites (that aren't your typical Top 40) and keep the day light and moving without being "over the top." Thomas delivered flawlessly!

    Thomas is a first-rate professional. He was attentive to every detail and simply a pleasure to work with. We had some pretty specific music requests (not the usual wedding fare) and he met all of them easily and even knew the songs. He kept the night flowing and on time and all of our guests raved about the playlists!!

    Your Way Entertainment contributed to the success of my event. Our initial discussion regarding my overall requirements was extremely professional and informative. It gave me peace of mind in knowing I was dealing with someone who knew what they were doing. Thomas, arrived early to set up and was very attentive to my requests and timeline. Thomas, was a great dj and I received so many compliments as to how wonderful he was. I had inquiries from co-workers requesting his information. I would without hesitation hire Thomas for another event.

    Thomas was amazing! Mike and I had our wedding in NYC aboard Aqua Azul Yacht and we couldn't of asked for a better DJ. Not only did he drive from Connecticut and sat in traffic for a while but he also made sure everything was running on time and was so on top of how everything was supposed to run. From our shared cake cutting with our grandmother, to every song we requested and even more played! His lighting effects was even captivating to the Yacht owner her self and she has events scheduled every week! His whole personality fit perfectly with ours. A fun, loving, easy going, get the job done kind of guy! Not what you would expect when you think of a party dj! I would absolutely recommend him to anyone and everyone! Thank you sooooo much Thomas for making our night extra special. We will always keep him in mind when it comes to events.

    Our DJ Thomas was amazing! He arrived on time, set up his equipment and was ready to roll long before he was needed. We gave him some general guidance as to our music choices and he rolled with it and produced exactly what we wanted. He was on point with the music all night long. Thomas is just a great DJ and a really nice person to deal with. We could not have been happier with him! Thomas was an absolutely stress free experience and just a great help during the wedding!

    He was on time. He did everything he said he would do. He checked with us a week before the Party just to make sure he had everything correct. When we contacted him, he got right back to us. The quality of his work was excellent, he never stopped playing the music and the light display he put on was really nice. Could not ask for a better DJ. Would recommend him to anyone.

    Thomas was able to find me a dj for a busy day and my fiancee and I totally appreciated that he went out of his way to find us someone. I just wish that the dj would have been more proactive in communicating with the venue. I also wish that the dj had played more of the songs that I had requested beforehand. There was a misunderstanding with the venue and there was not as much time for dancing as was planned, but I still feel slighted that only two of the songs I requested that night were played. I feel like I paid too much for too little. Now I know what to look for/expect in the future when I plan my wedding.
    Thomas J. Jun 8, 2017

    Hi Carol, I'm sorry to hear that you weren't 100% satisfied with the services from the dj company that was referred you to. This comes as a bit of a shock because I had received no notification of your dissatisfaction from the dj company that was referred to you. As a result, I took it upon myself to reach out to that company/dj to hear their side of the story. Your dj arrived early and was setup before any of your guests had arrived. During that time he went over the plan for the evening with the venue. It is my understanding that the venue was exceptionally and unpredictably late with the meal service. After speaking with the venue the dj recognized this would ultimately limit the dancing time and recommended to your fiancé to play more upbeat music in order to fill the gaps and allow your guests to dance. The dj was told by your fiancé to continue playing classical music as this was a part of the plan that you and your fiancé wanted executed. This same plan was consistent with the planning sheets that were provided by you. In regards to only 2 of your requested songs being played, I respectfully have to disagree. The dj software utilized at your event records the names of the songs played, how long they were played, and it also stamps the date and the time in which the songs were played. After comparing your planning sheets with the songs played throughout the night, your dj only missed a few of your requested songs only because the event was not long enough to play all of your requests. Your dj further accommodated you and your fiancé by playing an eclectic mix of songs that you neglected to request prior to the event. He found a way to upload a thumb drive of your music into his software during the event without missing a beat. It is also my understanding that you were out on the dance floor throughout the entire dancing portion of your event and neither you nor your fiancé made any complaints about the way things were going to the dj. In closing, the plan for the evening was carried out the way you asked and I’m confused as to why you feel slighted.

    Tom was the best choice for our wedding! He arrived on time, dressed professionally and was a perfect gentleman. Even though I was super late on getting him all the info he needed, he still made sure to play all of the music I had requested. He engaged all of the guests and a month and a half later, everyone is still raving about what a fun time they had at our wedding. He even stayed late because our wedding was a little behind schedule. I would definitely hire Tom again if I ever need a dj again! Thank you so much!

    ️️️Excellent DJ
    My experience worth Your Way Entertainment and DJ Tom Jackson was ️️excellent from beginning to end. Tom was very professional and responsive. He provided a professional contract to sign, responded to all my queries and gave me a planning sheet that he used as a guideline for the day of the event. He came on time, brought all his equipment and even his own set up table with him. He DJ'd pretty well and a couple of my guests even complimented me on the DJ. He was flexible with the timing and willing to stay late if needed (for an extra fee of course), and he even came earlier than we had planned originally when I discovered I had given him the wrong time. Overall I couldn't be happier. I will definitely hire him for my next event and highly recommend him.

I didn't really want people to hear my vows anyways. :P The important part was that he kept the party going and played songs that fit the mood. The lighting was very nice too and not over done. Tom was also an excellent MC, and thought of things that I didn't even ask him. He kept my guests going about the party in an orderly fashion and made sure that we stuck to our schedules. Thank you again for playing such an important role in making sure the wedding went off without a hitch!

    Your Way Entertainment and Productions is a very exceptional company. Dj Action is a remarkable DJ and has tremendous knowledge about music and entertainment. I have had the privilege to interact with Action on many occasions and he is always a pleasure. He always, without fail, has everyone dancing nonstop and knows how to keep all age groups (both younger and older) entertained. Not only is Action an excellent DJ but also incredibly nice and very professional. Everyone in the company is highly skilled and I would recommend hiring them for any occasion in which they specialize.

    This Company Is My Go-to Company For Events. The DJ Is Incredibly Friendly & Professional. I've Been Privileged To Attend Events That They Have Done For Years Now. The Energy Is Always So High-Octane That No One Can Stop Dancing, Myself Included. They Always Play Music To Keep The Crowd Going, And Always Take Requests From Patrons & Guests. Everyone Is Always Pleased With The Music Because Aside From Requests, They Play The Current Hits From All The Music Genres, & Hits From The Great Dance Eras. People Young & Old Will Be Entertained The Whole Time. The DJs Interact With The Crowd On The Mic & Keep The Vibe Light & The Energy Up. My Longtime Friends Have Just Hired Them For Their Wedding Reception Because They Wanted A Professional High End Company For An Affordable Price; So I Recommended "Your Way Entertainment". Since The Company Offers Everything You Could Possibly Need For Any Event, From Graduation Parties To Formal Weddings.

    I met Tom decades ago, and employed his services before he even opened Your Way Entertainment. Yet in the 20 years I have known him, I have never planned a single event without him. From private club parties to charity events hosting multi-millionaire donors - You can trust Your Way to put on an excellent event.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We have several packages to choose from starting at $300. However we always do a free consultation to help our clients pick the best package for their event and we try to work with everyone's budget.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Normally we start with an initial consultation in order to gain an understanding of what a potential client is looking for. If we are selected as the entertainment providers we then issue a contract, collect a deposit once the contract is signed and returned to us, and then proceed with a more in depth consultation to make things perfect for the event.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We do our own research by attending music conferences, checking music charts daily, and trying out new equipment.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We've worked with everyone from everyday people to major corporations, to globally touring music artists. Here's a list of some of our clients: Lord And Taylor, Macy's, Sikorsky, Justworks NYC, Waldorf Astoria NYC, Hilton NYC, Home Depot, Beiersdorf, Red Hawk Fire And Security, Ridgefield Connecticut Rotary Club, Ryder's Healthcare, Athena Healthcare, Revera Healthcare, Genesis Healthcare, Rehab Solutions, Access Rehab Centers, Toad's Place, The Russian Lady, Tavern At The Exchange, The Tavern New Haven, Black Bear Saloon, Quinnipiac University, Sacred Heart University, Colby College, Newtown High School, Litchfield High School, Connecticut River Academy, Wachusett Regional High School, St. Matthews School, St. John Paul School,
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure that whoever you hire is insured, has great reviews and or can provide references, and gives you a feeling of competence and security.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Many people feel that when paying for a dj, they are only paying for the length of the performance. On the contrary, it is reasonable to consider the pre and post event work that the client does not see. For example, a dj has to load his/her vehicle with the necessary equipment for the event, drive to the venue, unload the vehicle, set up the equipment, play music/mc for the event, break down, load the vehicle up again, drive to their home or office, and then unload the equipment again. That can add an additional 3 to 4 hours (depending on the driving distance) to a dj's day. It is also important to take into consideration the countless hours that good djs spend researching music so that they are prepared for any event. Another thing to ask is if your entertainment company insured? Accidents do happen and you need to know that you will be taken care of in the event of misfortune.
