I hired James to be my wedding DJ and MC for my September 13th wedding. Many people here have written glowing comments for James- and I agree. However, I am going to list my top reasons I picked James and/or am happy with his services:
1) Professionalism - always courteous in his responses and extremely responsive to questions and emails (we are talking less than a 24 hour turnaround time frame). During the wedding, he checks in with you before playing songs that were on my do not play list and I appreciated that. I wanted people to dance, and didn't realize that some of the songs i banned were the ones people really wanted to dance to but James informed me and people started to dance.
2) Experience - you might be concerned that one person is doing two jobs of MC and DJ'ing, but James handles it quite well. Additionally, the man does 2-3 weddings per weekend and probably knows the venue that you are having your wedding at. I was concerned about noise bleeding from the other banquet room because another wedding was going on, and James was able to address that. Also, by the end of my reception, we had both sides of the family dancing around my husband and I, and it was an amazing feeling.
3) Affordability - James has a great package deal and what I like about his service offering is that the hours are greater than that of your typical DJ (which generally runs 4 hours and then you pay additional per hour).

Overall, I was very happy with James. He had everything I was looking for and delivered on his promises. Thank you James!

James was awesome to work with! He MC/DJ'ed our October 25th, 2014 wedding reception, and all our guests raved about the reception. We had a memorable and fantastic time and knew much of it was due to his skills and experience. There were several helpful things James did along the way that helped with my wedding prep:

1. He was clear about his services and his contract was straight forward/easy to read. And when changes were made along the way, James emailed us an updated contract throughout the wedding prep process.

2. He forwarded us an excel sheet with an outline of the reception timeline and music choices. We spent a weekend listening to songs and listing ones we thought our guests would enjoy. Day of the wedding, James played most everything on the list and (even better) was able to seamlessly transition the songs and cued them with perfect timing during the reception.

3. My sister-in-law and I wanted to surprise my husband with a slideshow last minute. I coordinated this with James just a few weeks before the wedding. During the reception he did a quick last minute projector setup right before the slideshow, which helped keep it a surprise. And we had a few on the fly toasts that were given, and James modified the timeline easily.

4. For anyone getting married--know that things will not be perfect on the day of. Things came up last minute, and I suspected this in preparation of the wedding. We wanted to invest in vendors who we could trust and would take initiative on their own to ultimately ensure we had a great time. James did just that!

These are just a few things that come to mind. I'm not sure how the pricing is in relation to other MC/DJs. My husband and I knew that a great DJ was necessary, along with an open bar. But without a doubt, James is a vendor who has experience, is easy to work with, and has skills in reading and entertaining a crowd.

Thanks James!

I cannot even describe how AWESOME James is! I have gone to so many weddings where the DJ is a total bore! Not James! When we first saw him at our friends wedding we knew we had to book him. When we first approached him he told us he had to hold off a day or two because there was another couple looking to book him during the date we picked but they were still being indecisive. Listen....don't be an idiot! Just book him as soon as you can! This guy is organized, professional and he knows what he's doing!

My friend had a scavenger hung during his wedding and I had my heart set on it during my wedding. But James being the professional he is could sense that the right thing to do would be a disco ball challenge. He respected what I wanted but made the suggestion very politely and I saw where he wanted to go with it. Looking back at the flow of our wedding he made an amazing choice and after that disco ball challenge....we all kept dancing!

James killed it at our wedding and the dance floor was packed. People of all ages were dancing their faces off! A lot of my aunts and uncles told me they hadn't danced so hard in years. Hardly anyone was sitting down at our tables, if they were...they were just tired from dancing.

I can't thank James enough for making the night so amazing.

James was such an amazing person to work with. From the moment we met, he was highly organized, efficient, business orientated, and willing to work with us in every aspect. Throughout the planning process he was very easy to get ahold of and met every expectation that we had. The day of the wedding flowed so well thanks to his MC/DJ skills. We had a venue that was a little difficult to MC due to the different levels and ceremony space, but he was a pro! The guests LOVED him and he had us all dancing well past the time to pack up and leave. People wanted more! I would highly recommend James for any event!

James was an amazing DJ/MC for our June 28th wedding. We had a good feeling after meeting with him-he was so easy going. Leading up to the wedding he was extremely organized, easy to work with, and responded to emails quickly. The day of, everything was PERFECTt. He did both our ceremony and reception music. He played all the music we requested, read the crowd and got people up and dancing. The dance floor was never empty. He also did some of the lighting in the room and got the exact color we wanted. We were so happy with everything James did-it was exactly what we wanted. Can't say enough good things!!! Would recommend him to anyone looking to have a lively fun event.

James was the best vendor we booked for our wedding reception! Upon inquiring about his services, prices and availability, he was very responsive and professional in our communications. He was also helpful in giving us recommendations on wedding coordinators and ideas for our reception before we even booked him. We booked his services right after meeting him as we wanted to be sure we'd have our date reserved.

Before our wedding, James maintained his solid responsiveness and helpfulness, replying to all our questions and concerns quickly. In addition to booking him as our DJ/MC, we also used his slideshow production services and uplighting. He also gave us a timeline that was very easy to fill out and follow.

Ultimately, James helped us pull off a perfect reception! The slideshow was wonderful, the lighting was great, and he maintained the flow of the party well and kept the dance floor busy, and we didn't even give him any playlists! We had a lot of guests with different music preferences/requests, and he was able to keep a good balance and satisfy everyone. His prices are also very reasonable in comparison to other top-rated DJs in Los Angeles. His availability dates fill up very quickly, so don't hesitate in booking James and All the above events for your special day!

James was referred to us by a friend that had seen him DJ at another wedding. We immediately gelled from the initial consultation. We booked James to do both our Ceremony and Reception at the Turnip Rose in Costa Mesa. He was very responsive to all my emails during the planning process. His DJ timeline is extremely easy to complete. From start to finish, James set everything up seamlessly.

James is not only a great DJ, he is an amazing Emcee as well. He speaks clearly, confidently, and has a positive energy level is contagious. We were pleasantly surprised how he controls the crowd and keeps things moving along. We are so grateful to have had James from ALL THE ABOVE EVENTS spin at our wedding!! The playlist was perfect during the ceremony, dinner, and reception.

We are extremely satisfied with the service we received. If you're looking for a DJ for your wedding, look no more! James is the man. He's been in the game for awhile, trust an expert! He's definitely money well spent!

James was BEYOND AMAZING! I can't express how thankful and impressed my Husband and I are with his work. He was so organized and he knew exactly how to keep the party going and the guest on the dancefloor. My family and friends were very impressed with his professionalism and he was very good at entertaining everyone. There were more than a handful of my guest who asked me for his contact information, so I'm positive we will be seeing more of James in our family events and don't let him fool you he speaks Spanish very well! We loved him and thanks again James for making our wedding unforgettable!
