We hired James a few times for family events. He was a great entertainer, good with the audience, and very conscientious. He is very personable and professional. James has a real good sense of what type of music to play to keep the party humming.Jul 6, 2016DJ James Jayson's reply
Thank you Kathy for the really nice review. James
James is a great DJ. I run motor coach tours and have used James as the entertainment many times. He’s handled the music for the last 9 years for my ‘Detroit Fireworks’ tour in June for 130 to 150 passengers each time. He is very good about playing the type of music that fits each particular group of people. If you need a professional DJ, then James should be your first choice.

Thank you Nance for the great review. I appreciate you taking the time to do that. Happy Trails. James
James was the best DJ I have come across in recent years! At my brother's wedding the DJ was SUPER loud, sound system for the microphone cut in and out alot, etc, but with James we didn't have ANY of those issues. Everything went smoothly and the music he picked was perfect and at a perfect volume! Would definitely hire him again!! Thanks James!!Jul 3, 2017VerifiedDJ James Jayson's reply

DJ James was wonderful at my wedding this past Saturday. The music was perfect. The atmosphere felt lovely. If I ever need a DJ again, I will definitely be a return customer.Nov 29, 2016VerifiedDJ James Jayson's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing depends on the distance of travel, and the amount of people that are expected at the event. Time expected to work also will come into play in deciding on a price. My pricing is very fair compared to the competition.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Starts with a phone call. I ask the customer what they are looking for exactly. Where the event will be held. The address and phone number(s) Time expected to perform.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been a professional magician/musician for over 30 years and travel throughout the United States. Being a DJ is an extension of what I already do. I was in the BFA program for Theatrical Arts at Wayne State University.
