    DJ that shows up is better prepared. DJ Dave did not play the right songs we picked for our wedding party entrance. He also failed to play our cocktail playlist we made and provided 3 weeks in advance. We also needed to remind the DJ to stick to the playlist twice throughout the evening.

    It was a very nice experience. I gave them our song list and song sequence as well which made it somewhat easier on them, but it went exactly as planned and we had guest song requests fit in there as well. The DJ Kevin worked us through a few things we forgot about and that was appreciated. They played from Cocktail hour-dinner hour on to the end of our songs at 11:45 which was plenty as we are an older couple on our 2nd time around the wedding dance and most of our 150 guests were done dancing anyways. OVERALL A+. Would recommend them. Would hire them again.

    Our experience, from initial contact through the wedding event, was great. Upon calling to inquire about availability, we were provided a reasonable rate, asked questions to help plan music, and given suggestions regarding the dinner time. At the dance, the music was in agreement most every attendee. The dance floor was filled throughout the night. My most sincere appreciation for a memorable evening!

    Amazing Wedding DJ
    Very responsive and professional. Played the music that had the dance floor full all night. Wasn't pushy and allowed us to choice what times we did the major dances. I would recommend them to anyone:)

    AJ was very kind, punctual and has a wonderful personality; he was able to accommodate our needs. As a bride I loved his positive attitude and the price was excellent. I would recommend for future brides has AJ come during dinner, and also have your list of your wedding party ahead of time for the announcement.

    Great service!
    We used their dj services for our homecoming dance. The dj was very professional and the students loved him. They shook his hand at the end of the dance- that has never happened before.

    Our DJ experience was top notch. From start to finish, it was all very professional, helpful, kind, knowledgeable, and flexible. Our DJ made us feel like our wedding was super important to them, and we never had one moment of doubt that we made the best decision for our day. Thru live discussions and emails, all the details were discussed and all was carried out til the very end of the night. Our DJ was there for us the whole step of the way. Highly recommend them for sure.

    When it comes to wedding, the DJ is sometimes the main event of the night and A Jay's DJ service definitely was the hype of our night. He played genre appropriate music for the elderly and younger children. He also played great clubbing music for the rest of us. I made an error when it came to songs for the father daughter dance and A Jay quickly fixed my mistake and came up with the perfect song for my dad and I to dance to :). A Jay will be very upfront with you about prices. He made some great suggestions that saved me about $600. If you're looking for an affordable and honest DJ, A Jay is the dj to hire. Thank you again A Jay. - Pang and Dakota

    My daughter's wedding was a blast thanks to A Jay's Disc Jockey Service. A Jay has performed for many other family functions and has always done an outstanding job. Even though, he happens to be part of my relation, A Jays outgoing and fun loving personality shines in his work and it is evident that he loves what he does. His experience and ability to read the crowd and play great music is what makes the event memorable. His range of music is also amazing. He has the standards but also variety. People danced the entire time he performed from start to finish. The reception was a huge success thanks to A Jay. Also, this service is extremely professional and affordable. A Jay also gave us many helpful tips, that I would not have thought of. I believe that the other DJ's he employs are handpicked to match his style. I would recommend his services to anyone for whatever the occasion. Thanks A Jay!!!!!!!

    We had A Jay's for our wedding and I must say, our DJ was AWESOME! He was sooo kind and did every thing we had asked for! He got everyone up and dancing and we all had a blast! Thanks AJ! Will definitely recommend them to anyone! ~Lauren and Joseph
  • Shana G. Nov 18, 2015
    I thought that he played a great variety of songs that everyone could enjoy. I was happy that my few requests could be played as well. I liked how the kids were really into the music, and it eventually brought the adults on the dance floor. I always love when everyone gets together and does the cha cha slide and dances together. Playing Led Zeppelin right at the end of the night was a perfect ending for me! I really enjoyed AJ and would recommend his services to anyone! He cared about what we really wanted listened!! Can't beat the price either! I was very pleased with our experience!

    This year marked the second year we used A Jay's DJ Service for our Homecoming Dance. Our DJ was again top of the line. Very professional, open to requests from our students, and had them happily dancing all night! The students were very happy with the music variety - and we all know that high school students are hard to please. 5 stars from us!

    Our reception was at The Darboy Club. I was a little disconcerted not being able to meet with AJ's in person- doing all planning over the phone or via email bothered me a little. I didn't feel like I got across what I was looking for- and it showed the night of our wedding. Our DJ was good- don't get me wrong- but I think had I been able to meet with AJ's I might have gotten my point across. Our actual DJ was really good at getting the crowd involved- addressing us personally- making sure we were enjoying the music. A couple times the pauses got a little long when he was trying to get the crowd involved- you could tell they were losing interest- but all in all our DJ was good.

    The price was right, but the dj was very inexperienced. He played one song and started another right in the middle creating a very confused crowd. Only five of the requested songs were played, and he was very unorganized. I wasn't going to leave a bad review, but after not getting a response from the owner about my displeasure, I figured I would save other customers from a disappointing experience. If he offers to give you referrals, take him up on it. I didn't. Big mistake. I could have avoided a bomb of a reception for my dream day.

    The dj wasn't dressed appropriately. He went to our home address instead of the reception site. We wanted a variety of music and he played stoner music. Not friendly or outgoing at all. My sister-in-law got the crowd going, not him. All he did was sit around. That we were an inconvenice. Definitely wouldn't recommend at all.

    Through Thumbtack we've been hired over 80 times, but only 13 informed Thumbtack we were hired. This is our 1st review. In response, the dj showed up in a T-shirt of Mickey Mouse holding a boom box that said "Old School". After setting up, he changed into his dress attire. The dj started playing music at his contracted start time. The bride, Dawn, gave us a song list that said "play all genres, 50's to current, something for everyone". The dj did play a variety of music. We're not sure what the groom meant by "stoner music". The dj played alot of requests, from the guests, to hear 80's "hair bands". The dj was friendly and outgoing. He was having fun playing music and watching everyone dance. The dj is having both knees replaced, so he did sit. The dj handled all MC and announcement duties. Including the bride and groom dance, father-daughter dance, mother-son dance, bouquet toss and garter throw. The groom's sister-in-law offered to introduce the wedding party for the grand march. She also wanted to use the microphone to get family and friends out for the chicken dance. The dj played a variety of music for 6 hours. We're sorry Jim wasn't 100% satisfied. This 1 review doesn't reflect the 7,900 past events we've done over 40 years.
