Best. Dj. Ever.
My husband and I decided early on that music was one of the most important things to us about our wedding day and because we're both very particular about the kind of music we like (and hate), we ... Read more assumed that finding the right DJ would be an arduous process. Jay was the first person we met with when beginning our search and we liked him and trusted him so much that we hired him immediately before even meeting with anyone else. He came into the first meeting with an air of competence that he carried throughout the entire planning process up until the last song. He listened to and genuinely cared about our song requests and asked all of the right questions to extrapolate our list into hours of music that we and our guests loved and danced to all night. Maybe even more importantly, he really, truly paid attention to the music we didn't want played and then created a list of similar artists to ask about ahead of time to see whether they would also be off limits, some which we hadn't even thought of but definitely would not have liked. He showed up prepared and professional but ready for a party and kept the entire ceremony and reception on perfect pace. His ability to feel out the crowd and make the necessary adjustments to keep people dancing allowed us to relax and enjoy the party without having to worry whether people were having a good time. One of our guests even came up to us during the reception and told us that ours was the best wedding playlist he had ever heard. Another person was so impressed with him that they asked us if we thought he'd consider flying to North Carolina for their wedding. My husband and I woke up the next morning with blisters on our feet and my wedding dress broken from dancing so hard. To be short, Jay was amazing. He was everything we were looking for and then some. If you're looking for the kind of party that leaves your guests telling you their muscles are sore the next day from so much dancing, HIRE HIM.

Simply The Best. Look No Further!
Stop looking for a DJ for your wedding. You found him. It's Jay McElfresh. And with a dope name like that, who could compete?! My husband and I can't say enough good things about Jay. Long story short ... Read more short - he #SLAYED! He is everything you want in a DJ - he listens to your "do not play list", he pulls from the playlist/list of songs that he asks that you curate for him during the planning phase, and he takes the time to get to know you and your spouse. BONUS -He is super stylish and sounds smooth as hell on the mic (the opposite of many DJ who are over-the-top, corny and literally sound like auctioneers on the mic). From the very beginning we knew Jay was our guy. He took the time to chat with my husband and I about our expectations, taste in music, and overall vision. He also had us complete a Music Worksheet which was super helpful to iron out all the details like wedding party announcements, couple's first dance, parent dances, toasts, and most importantly to detail the songs we would love to hear/genres we love, and to document the songs that would make us run from the dance floor for the "do not play list". On top of everything, he made sure he had our timeline handy and even arrived a couple hours early to help our Violinist set up for our ceremony and performed a sound check with both her and our Officiant. He truly went above and beyond! Jay is truly an expert in what he does, a real professional and overall cool dude. You will love working with him and your guests will be out on the dance floor all night! Book him :)

Jay is the best!
Jay DJ'd our wedding last weekend in CT and was the BEST. From our first communication, he was SO easy and helpful to work with. We had an in-person meeting many months before the wedding and, filled ... Read more filled out a questionnaire a few weeks before the wedding to finalize our music selection, and then did a final call with Jay to go over the details. He is super organized and professional - a big relief to a busy bride! My main concern in the weeks leading up to the wedding was the order of the reception (when to do speeches, when to cut cake, when to do dances?!) and Jay really, really helped me finalize the timeline. He is a real pro with tons of experience. On the day of, he was fun, professional, and flexible. His emceeing skills are also excellent and everything went according to schedule! Most importantly, everyone had so much fun and the dance floor was crowded all night long. I just have to think up another event to be able to book Jay again...
