I do NOT recommend hiring for your wedding. Maybe a small reunion or something but not a wedding. I hired them for my wedding and it was a complete disaster. His speakers were buzzing the entire time, he said he did not have my playlist, he played my first dance song again for everyone to dance to, he had pauses between every song... do your self a favor and don’t go cheap on your dj.Oct 10, 2018VerifiedDJ Jim Professional DJ Services's reply
Thank You for the review. It will help us be a better company. After 107 weddings I've finally had a complete disaster. I'll review our video of my performance and see what we can do to improve. At least the dance floor was full right up to end time.
Jim was great for our wedding. He is very prompt in returning messages and works hard to make sure everything goes great on the big day. He also has some great witty wisdom that we’ll never forget! If you’re looking for a great DJ at a good price, Jim will be a fine choice.Apr 17, 2018Verified
DJ Jim was great.. He played everything we wanted and even sang a special song for our wedding. He had great lighting which made the wedding reception/party even more fun. Definitely would recommend him for any event.Oct 6, 2016Verified
DJ, Jim was great! He played a variety of songs and a few we requested. He had most of the crowd out on the floor. He made sure everything went as planned and gave our wedding that special touch!Jul 16, 2016Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to meet a prospective customer in person whenever possible. Sometimes that can't be done. I had a bride book my services while she was serving on board ship in the Persian Gulf. Since I had the same Persian Gulf experience, we connected. I got the job. Phone contact is the next best thing for introductions. I prefer email for negotiations. It leaves our conversations in writing.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I was a member of a band for a couple of years. I have some formal training in music. I know the difference between a slow dance and a waltz. I enjoy Meeting new people on a new project.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Sold my communications company and semi-retired. I still maintain 2 servers and 80 client websites. A friend opened a nightclub and offered me a job as the DJ. I found that I have a knack for reading a crowd and know what to play and when to play it. That was in the 80s and I haven't been off many weekends since. I think a lot of DJs make the mistake of playing songs they like. Usually good songs, but they fail to connect with the audience. Professional systems with lights, haze, and powerful amps are only the finishing touch to the right song at the right time.
