We hired James to be our DJ/MC at our wedding at the Carondelet House in March, and he absolutely nailed it! My husband and I love music, but we’re not into popular stuff. We like old school punk, garage rock, glam rock, shoegaze, etc. Stuff you don’t hear at weddings. So when we hired James based on his stellar Yelp reviews, we weren’t quite sure that he would get our taste in music. But we knew he would play what we asked, which was all we really wanted. However, we were more than pleasantly surprised to find out that James totally understood – and even liked – our taste in music. He did an amazing job transitioning from song to song, picking the coolest songs to blend together. It sounded amazing. Our friends kept coming up to us and telling us how much our DJ rocked! We also gave James permission to play some of the more popular stuff if no one was dancing, which he did at one point. So if you’re into popular music, James knows what to play to get the crowd dancing. James was also a great MC – professional, funny, and definitely not cheesy. He even did the up-lighting in the dining room for a fraction of what other companies quoted us, and it looked stunning! If you’re looking for a DJ who is affordable and will rock your wedding no matter what your taste in music, hire James! My husband and I cannot recommend him enough!

Music was huge for my husband and me when we were planning our wedding. Our friends had high expectations and we knew we couldn't disappoint. James was the second vendor we booked and easily the best decision we made. He made the whole day flow perfectly. James was so responsive and professional from the beginning and I always felt less stressed after talking to him. James nailed every song request we had, but what really sealed the deal for us was when he started dropping his mashups and remixes. Everyone loved it!

After a few conversation James knew exactly what my husband and I were going for and he killed it. We were afraid our parents and grandparents were going to think our music choices were too non-traditional, but for even weeks after, our parents couldn't stop raving about our DJ. He kept things flowing and got the crowd pumped up. He really set the tone for the night and exceeded all our expectations! Guests kept coming up to us throughout the night saying the music was on point, our dj was killing it, and a few even snagged his business card for their own wedding!

Go with James! You'll be so glad you did!

James was incredible! I wasn't impressed by the Dj's that our wedding venue suggested. So I went to Yelp.... as I do with most crucially important decisions of my life. His perfect 5 star rating caught my attention. And let me tell you, his perfect 5 star rating is deserved. From the moment we contacted James, he was everything we hoped all of our other vendors would have been. He listened to what we wanted, he was attentive, and he just blew us away on our wedding day. My (now) husband and I are very laid back people. We wanted to trust our vendors to make the best decisions for our day and to just take care of it! We had too much to worry about to fret over what songs would be played throughout the whole evening and how our MC would conduct him or herself. We chose people that we trusted to take the reins and just do what they do best. James is one of those people. He was one of the few vendors we hired that really impressed us with his passion and professionalism. James has the gift of being a phenomenal MC AND Dj. You usually don't get both. He was not pretentious as I find most wedding Dj's to be... he was a true pro... all the while being completely endearing and lovely. We could not be happier that we chose James to be a part of the most memorable day of our lives (thus far). He is so obviously passionate about what he does. He has a genuine enthusiasm and evident desire to make your day as best as it can be. If I could give him more than 5 stars, I would! If I ever have another Dj worthy event, James is the only man I will accept. If he is unavailable, then my party will have to be rescheduled to a day where James IS available. (Mic drop)

The best advice I can give couples is to do your homework when picking out your vendors. When you have good vendors/services, the wedding process is a lot smoother. With that said, DJ James, from All The Above Events, is an A+ DJ/MC. From the start of the process, James is as professional as they get. You have a variety of options with James, he is willing to meet in person to discuss and plan out your needs. You also do not feel any pressure when it comes to making your decision on which DJ service you want, he even recommends that you talk to other DJ's. Leading into the wedding date, all your questions are answered in a timely manner. You are provided a easy fill in timeline sheet to help you track how your wedding day is going to play out. When the day comes, James just tell you relax, have fun and he just takes over. The dance floor was never empty, he has great song selection and a good feel for the crowd. Clear, loud, booming voice to get people's attention and keep the party on track. Courteous and kind to all your guests. Top of the line sound, light and DJ equipment. Easy payment options. I chose James because I was impressed when he DJ my friends wedding. My wedding consist of 200+ guests, and all of my guests had high praises for him.

The DJ/MC is incredibly important to the wedding, which is why we hired James more than a year out from our wedding date on 5/28/16. We had put down a deposit before we even met him based on his stellar reviews, and it was one of the best decisions we made.

What I appreciated the most was that he responds to emails promptly, which not all vendors do. He also answers all your questions and even offers helpful suggestions. On the day of our wedding, he did a stellar job MC'ing. We changed things up by having guests from each table come to our sweetheart table instead of us going from table to table, and he did a fantastic job preparing our guests for it. He was great with the games as well. It was funny and entertaining. Even when things didn't go exactly as planned, as in I forgot to wear my garter for the garter toss and it was locked in the bridal suite (ugh, bridal brain), he helped me find my bridesmaid and told her to get my garter fast. Thank God he stepped in cuz I was just standing there panicking.

After the wedding, we had friends and family telling us that our MC was really good and that our wedding wasn't boring. We owe it all to him. James is great at what he does. To top it off, he's very professional and hard-working. You can tell he values his clients and puts them first, which is rare.

Don't even think about it, just hire him! It'll be the best decision you'll make.

I had the pleasure of working with James for my wedding on May 21, 2016. James is really easy going and can adapt to changes, which happens often with wedding planning. He's super prompt in getting back to emails, which is important in this line of work. No bride and/or groom wants to wait days for vendors to get back to them, and my fiance and I never had this issue with James. On the wedding day, he's ready to go when needed, played all the right songs for our ceremony and reception. He's great on the mic - a naturally funny guy that is great at getting the crowd's attention and keeping it. He played a scavenger hunt game that our guests thoroughly enjoyed, especially our wild game participants, and we loved watching! Music selections were on point. My fiance and I are huge hip hop and R&B fans, and he played all the right stuff, including songs that the older folks appreciate. He knew what to play and when to play them. So many friends and family came up to us telling us how much they loved the music. A friend even told me how a lot of the music brought her and her husband back to their dating days...love it! Cousins emailed me asking me if I had the wedding music on a Spotify list or something. I said nope, we gave James some must play songs and he pretty much took it and ran with it! In all the hustle and bustle of a busy wedding day, I still remember hearing my must plays and it got me dancing and prancing around....it was such a fun night and it was definitely in part (a HUGE part) to James. We were sad the night was coming to an end. James played our "last song" request which was Jay-Z's "Forever Young". But heck, after that song ended, you know there's always a request for just ONE MORE! And of course, one of our friends requested Drake's "One Dance" and James was on it like nobody's business. *sigh* We wish we can do it all over again!! Thank you, James, for doing an awesome job and making our wedding an unforgettable one!!

We have been to two other weddings that James did and we had a blast at those so when it came time to choosing our DJ, there was only 1 person on our list. James is great to work with before the event, very responsive, very flexible, and very accommodating. During the event he is electric, keeps the dance floor full, plays a great mix of music, and when we were running late, he knows how to bring it all back together. He also puts together a beautiful ceremony. For us, the DJ was the top 1st or 2nd most important choice for our wedding and I am so happy that we chose James. I would highly recommend contracting with James for any event and I would definitely choose him for any future events that we have.

James is very good at what he does. We hired him to be our DJ and MC for our wedding on 01/03/16 and it was one of the best decisions we made. A lot of people seem to underestimate the importance of a DJ/MC, thinking they can probably save a little money in that department. But if you've ever been to a boring ass wedding, you'll know that hiring a professional is worth it. Believe me, no one wants to listen to your spouse's chatty but slightly dorky friend, navigate through an entire reception, with awkward pauses and inside jokes that no one understands. But sadly, it happens. James is professional, organized, talented, and knows how to throw a good party. And that's exactly what he did for us. With no more direction than a spreadsheet of our preferences and a few promptly responded to emails, he was able to incorporate our wide ranging taste in music while creating an energy that lasted throughout the night. All of our guests had a great time, and James definitely had a lot to do with that. So if you're thinking about hiring a DJ for your wedding, just let James take care of everything else for you. We did the package which included just about everything we needed, and my wife and I were able to sit back and just enjoy our wedding with the ones we love. That alone is worth infinitely more than his reasonable price. Thank you James for the hard work, and for making our wedding great.
