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 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!

James was amazing. A friend of mine actually recognized him from another wedding and remembered that he was just as awesome.

I had 2 performances done by a violinist and a singer (last minute), but James was able to sync the background music they wanted perfectly without any sound check.

James is also a great MC. He was able to time everything well and get the crowd pumped up.

After my wedding, another friend immediately went up to him and got his contact information for her wedding.

James was an amazing DJ and MC. Our guests complimented us on his great work. He helped us with our timeline, created a special mix for our dance routine, did our slideshow as well as dj and mc our wedding. He really did provide all of the above for our event. He is a pleasure to work with and would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, hardworking and overall fun dj to work your event. James kept our guests on the dance floor and most importantly he made sure my husband and I got what we wanted. He kept our reception flowing smoothly and made sure we had the most amazing time. I cannot say enough great things about James. As a bride, I sincerely encourage you to book James to work your wedding reception if you want a stress free event in the hands of a true professional who knows exactly how to get things done and make sure you enjoy your night.

James was totally AWESOME!!!

My husband and I got married on 9/13/13. We contacted several DJs and felt everything was ridiculously priced and I didn't like how most places offer their services starting in 4 hour block of time. Why would anyone just want music for 4 hours? Most weddings last longer than that! When I contacted James, I felt the price was very reasonable.

James was very professional and organized! As someone who is a bit OCD, I really loved that! He emailed me spreadsheets for timelines and suggestions on music. He always responded quickly when I had questions. When I told him we didn't want to do traditional things such as first dance and garter toss and wanted to play games instead, he emailed me a list of possible games. How awesome is that?!

On the day of the wedding, we were suppose to use our shoes for one of the games to indicate "HIM" or "HER". James actually made signs for us to hold up! That is really going above and beyond!

James was not just an awesome DJ he was also a fantastic MC! I simply emailed him the games we wanted to play and he explained them flawlessly to guests. He made all the announcements and was funny and entertaining. We really couldn't have asked for more!

We even got many compliments for guests about how great our DJ was!

James made our event memorable and we thank him greatly for such a wonderful night :)

Even during the planning process, James responded to all of our questions quickly and even recommended multiple vendors to us. In fact, he didn't just recommend one or two people but provided a list of numerous people. Due to James, we found BOTH our wedding coordinator and videographer and were extremely happy with them!

James was absolutely one of the best part of my wedding. We met with several vendors and spent several months deciding on a dj/mc and I am so glad we went with James. As many have stated he is very professional, organized, engaging, warm and accommodating. From the time we first met with him, he showed such professionalism, efficiency and warmth. The day we decided to book his services he knocked out the reception schedule quickly and efficiently which was such a huge relief to us so we had a schedule to work with as we had no idea how the day would go. We largely based our final schedule from this initial meeting. James also sent documents that were so easy to fill out for various activities in the reception and song requests. As others have stated his communication was excellent, always quick to reply to any email and providing valuable feedback to organize the order of the reception.
Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the wedding and we received many compliments about James. My wife and I loved his mixing of songs as we requested a mix of hip hop, top 40 and some edm and he also had a great presence and energy but wasn't overbearing in his mcing. He engaged the crowd, commanded their attention and ran the day's activities very smoothly. He also played Dear Mama unrehearsed right after my speech as I quoted some lyrics from it! Needless to say it was a memorable moment as many people started singing along. We had many guests stay till the end dancing and several friends told us the next day saying that they were sad to have the night end as they were having so much fun. James had to play two last songs before we all had to go. My wife and I had never been to a wedding where many guests stayed till the end packing the dance floor. James was the perfect dj/mc and my wife and I are so grateful that James does what he does for a living. Thank you James!!

DJ James of All the Above Events was amazing! We knew the minute we met him that he was our guy! He came totally prepared and worked with us on song selection and getting exactly what we wanted for our wedding day. We gave him a few of our specific song choices for each part of our wedding and then asked him to fill in with whatever he though was best to create the right vibe. We trusted him totally and he really gave us everything we thought we wanted and more. He gave us 110% and really worked hard to make sure we were happy. He brought beautiful lighting to make our venue and dance floor come alive and perfectly manned the projector all night. In addition he was a fabulous EMCEE all night long and he gave us a fantastic price. He also worked well with our wedding coordinator and family members that had special requests. He is the WHOLE PACKAGE. We were so happy and thankful we chose All The Above Events to DJ our wedding. Thank you James! You are the BEST.

James was the first DJ we met with, and he was very professional, organized, and answered all of our questions. We had a good feeling about him from the beginning. We met with a couple other DJs who were non-responsive and unable to answer our follow up questions.
We are so happy we chose him. Everyone commented as to what a great job he did at the reception. He kept everything moving along with great transitions. I went to USC, and my husband went to UCLA. James played both of our fight songs right at the perfect moments to get everyone going.
The final thing that our guests loved was the fact that he had music videos to go along with the music. Everyone loved seeing the "Thriller" music video. I would highly recommend him.

James Lee was amazing! From the first time meeting him, I could tell he would be a pleasure to work with. He recognized that it was our big day, and made sure it was all about us and our family and friends having a good time. He spun all of our must plays and kept everyone on the dance floor all night. He also did a fantastic job running everything on time for the reception. One of our biggest worries that we saw at other weddings were sound system issues (dropped mic signals or feedback) . James provide us with flawless sound services for the ceremony and for speeches at the reception. His service and pricing is the absolute best!

Soon after my now wife and I got engaged, we started attending bridal shows, in order to find vendors for our wedding. The first show we attended was at the Queen Mary in Long Beach.
We stopped by several DJ booths, but were not impressed, that is until we came across James (All the Above Events). James presented himself in a very professional manner, from the very beginning. James (dressed in a tuxedo) politely greeted us as we approached his booth and said "give me three minutes and I will give you the best presentation you will see all day." After his presentation, we knew we were going to be following up with him on a later date.
A few weeks later, we scheduled a first meeting with James. My wife and I had agreed to not commit to any one vendor too quick, so that we could review our options and have something to compare each to, but based on our meeting with James and the feedback back that we had received from his past clients (via Yelp), after contacting them, we decided to move forward with him. James was the first vendor we booked...
We decided to use James for the up-lighting as well as DJ service, since his pricing was less than other lighting options we looked at. The lighting was perfect! He also nailed it when it came to the music. He played exactly what we wanted from beginning to end. We had a call with James the week of our wedding, to discuss with him, the genres that we liked, as well as giving him specific song titles that we wanted played. He took that info and ran with it... He really knows how to keep the dance floor packed and how to keep the party going. He also provided a good mix of Spanish music. James is Asian and is completely fluent in Spanish.
We've received many positive comments, from our guests, about James and have also had several requests for his contact information. I will defiantly book James for any other events that I host in the future and will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Thanks, James!

James Lee was a great DJ at my wedding. He was very organized and he kept our timeline moving very smoothly. James had provided a few spreadsheets which helped me put together the timeline (songs/games) for the day. He played great music. James was very responsive to all of my questions. He did a great job putting together our slideshow as well. I remember emailing him some last minute changes the night before the wedding and he was still able to fit it in our timeline. I would highly recommend him to other brides-to-be. Thanks James for everything!!

We had wedding guests who have not danced before who danced for the first time becuase there was so much energy and wanted to be part of it. The mixing was the best I ever experienced, requests were taken promptly. He guided the festivities and coordinated with the wedding planner. My advise: invest in a great DJ and photographer. We give ourself 5 stars for hiring James as DJ. THANKS, James!!

James is the real deal. He was the master of ceremonies at my friend's wedding, and did an amazing job. Since my wedding was much more intimate - 75 people - I knew making our wedding reception entertaining and fun was definitely going to be a feat because we had a smaller group of people. Regardless, he kept the audience engaged, played all the right songs to keep the mood going consistently and performed exactly to our personal specifications! Not a lot of people can do as good a job with a smaller crowd. Whether your party is big or small - James is perfectly adaptable and will not disappoint! Thanks again James - Cristine

I had been meaning to leave a review for James from All the Above Events for a while now. If there was one vendor that made our special day it was James. We couldn't have enjoyed our wedding as much as we did if it hadn't been for him. From beginning to end, every single thing ran smoothly and it just made our day stress free. And he MC'd our wedding perfectly, he's so charismatic and professional at the same time. I would give him 10 stars if I could and would definitely recommend him to everybody!!!

We love you James, you made our day everything we ever wished it would be and our guests had a blast!

I bombarded him with alot of annoying emails and he answered every single one within 24 hours. He followed are playlist and stuck to our special requests. His vibe at the reception was perfect. Very friendly, fun and experienced... not cheesy or overdone at all... which was a big concern of mine after going to weddings where I just wanted the DJ to zip it! All and all James is a perfect 10 and I would recommend him to anyone looking for an awesome DJ! Thanks James!

AMAZING MC and DJ! We had James as our MC/DJ for our wedding and he was incredibly entertaining. We had a little hiccup during my bouquet toss where I didn't have a bouquet to throw! As my planner went to grab one, James entertained the crowd with a dance off while we waited. He did it in such a smooth and effortless way that no one noticed the delay. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends because he did such an amazing job at our wedding.

On the back end...his responsiveness to emails were quick. He also helps you out if you need recommendations or any advice you may need. Truly a gem at your next event!

James from All The Above Events was the DJ for our wedding. HE WAS AMAZING! We never had any issue trying to contact him, and whenever we talked he was pleasant. We even forgot to update our song preferences with him. We emailed him a new song list at 1 am on the day of the wedding, and he accommodated this with no problem or complaints.

We were also amazed by how he got the dance floor packed. My family is very old fashioned, but surprisingly he had them dancing non stop. RIGHT BEFORE the main dance events we told him: "They like swing music". With just that he had the party going. He also able to quickly change the music depending on the situation (someone through some money into the air), he was really paying attention to the dance floor.

Great guy and a pleasure to do business with.

James is super-professional DJ, easy to work with and very comfortable with a crowd. He believes in preparation which means bringing duplicates of all equipment and even helping us (bride & groom) in a gentle way to figure out what we want. We appreciated his efforts deeply and would recommend his services without question. He made my bride feel very comfortable on what can be a stressful day, and even my new father-in-law made specific mention that he was a great choice. He followed instructions well, and gave us the wedding we wanted. I was impressed that he even specifically wore a shirt that matched the wedding colors - details matter. Thanks James!

One of our TOP priorities was to have a ROARING PARTY for wedding reception and that was literally accomplished with James from All the Above Events. I know I'm not the only one because all these reviewers were right.

He was recommended to us by our trusted friend/wedding coordinators who worked with him on a previous wedding. They knew this was a priority so we trusted their judgment BUT meeting James confirmed it.

Top 5 reasons he's awesome:
1. He's professional and showed he's very experienced at what he does
2. He got the crowd PUMPED when we did our grand entrance
3. He hosted and judged the contest during our first dance as people lip-synced to it (which made it HILARIOUS).
4. He packed the dance floor which included my grandmas and quiet unsuspecting uncles!
5. He's easy to talk to and FUN!

And to be honest, my husband and I are picky! James was just THAT good. :)

He has a great personality and is very easy to talk to. We were very impressed with how organized he is, he sent us templates to fill to make sure everything was clearly communicated.

The day of, James worked well with the other vendors and made sure all visual and audio was ready to go. He did a great job announcing and getting the guests excited for the grand entrance as well as announcing the other highlights during the reception. I was extremely happy with the lighting and gobo lighting, it made the room look awesome and was exactly what I imagined. We definitely have James to thank as part of our wedding day success!

We loved All The Above Events! We used James Lee as our DJ/MC for the day, and he was amazing. Leading up to the day he was great in helping to organize the schedule of the day and logistics, and was great with song ideas and suggestions. Very professional, and great at providing quick response to email and providing his expertise & opinions. On the day of the wedding he was personable, fun, but still very organized and great at keeping the day moving on schedule. He did a great job of playing a lot of the music we wanted to hear as well as his own party music to maintain a fun party atmosphere. Not only that, we had a friend sing our first dance so he coordinated all the equipment and logistics for this, making it run flawlessly. After the day, we got a lot of comments from friends how much fun they had at the wedding and how great our DJ/MC was. He really was an asset to the day, and we were so glad we had him!

James is by far the best MC/DJ out of all the weddings I've ever attended period. He just recently did our wedding and we could not have asked for more. Seriously, spectacular job James! Let's start from the beginning. He was available whenever we needed him and made our lives a lot easier. We gave him a list of songs that we liked and he knew exactly what kind of music we wanted. James kept the party going all the up to the end of the night. So many of our friends commented on how awesome the DJ was that night.

He was also MC and communicated extremely well with our wedding coordinator so that everything went smoothly. We honestly did not have to worry about anything because James made sure the guests had a good time. He provided all the sound system, 2 mics, and about 16 lights. James came early that day and made sure everything was working properly. His attention to detail, organization, and effort is evident and it shows throughout the night. James is really friendly and professional. He delivers nothing less than exceptional and we are so grateful! Thanks James again!!!

Let's start from the beginning. He was available whenever we needed him and made our lives a lot easier. We gave him a list of songs that we liked and he knew exactly what kind of music we wanted. James kept the party going all the up to the end of the night. So many of our friends commented on how awesome the DJ was that night.

He was also MC and communicated extremely well with our wedding coordinator so that everything went smoothly. We honestly did not have to worry about anything because James made sure the guests had a good time. He provided all the sound system, 2 mics, and about 16 lights. James came early that day and made sure everything was working properly. His attention to detail, organization, and effort is evident and it shows throughout the night. James is really friendly and professional. He delivers nothing less than exceptional and we are so grateful! Thanks James again!!! Read less

James was AWESOME!!! By far the best vendor we hired for our wedding! He was friendly, organized and professional. Was fun and kept the party going without being corny! My husband and I have very different taste in music and James did an excellent job of handling both of our special requests. I got so many compliments on him from my guests. I highly reccommend him!

James was an amazing DJ!! From the first time we met him it was apparent how much he loves what he does. From creating our event timeline to helping me with wedding slide show questions-- he was there for me. The day of the wedding he kept us on time for everything. We were so busy with everything going on it was nice to have someone keep track the time-from reminding us when the toast and speeches should be done and even when it was time to cut the cake. James took care of us from the first email up til the end of our wedding. He knows what music to play based on the type of guests, and I love that he could download any song we requested in the matter of minutes-No one could use the excuse that the DJ wasnt playing music they could dance to:) You will not be sorry if you hire James for your wedding!!

James is awesome! From our first meeting he was knowledgeable and professional. I'm really...uhm..."organized" so when he whipped out his computer with spreadsheets and song ideas, I knew this was our guy. Then when he and my fiance bonded over sports...it was a wrap!

James took care of all our audio, lighting, and DJ needs. He educated us on wireless speakers for our ceremony (we were married on the beach in Malibu) and made sure the sound was excellent. During the reception, the lighting was perfect and most importantly...he did an amazing job of balancing our musical tastes/requests.

His MC skills are awesome and really helped to keep the evening flowing. As far as his DJ skills, only a genuis could blend neo soul/R&B, classic rock, 80's hair bands, and "old school" Rap in a way that kept everyone grooving all night and talking about how great the music was the next day!

James patience and professionalism really shined when he didn't even blink an eye as we kept editing the "must play" list...even until the night before the wedding.

I highly encourage you to book with James!

James Dj'd our wedding and was great! He was nice and professional when we met, and when the reception came, he really turned on the 'dj' mode and totally rocked the wedding! He knew when some songs I requested weren't really working, so he quickly changed them to keep everyone up and dancing, which was really important to us. He was easy to work with and really well priced. I am recommending him to friends and would use him again.

James was our DJ for our wedding a couple of weeks ago. When we first met James initially, he was very professional and gave an excellent presentation. He is responsive to email and phone calls. He has suggestions for your weddings but he will do and play what ever you want. Will meet with you almost anywhere that is convenient for you. The wedding was a great success and James played a big part of it. I've been to weddings with DJs and would have to say some of their MC jobs were not the best. James is professional dressed, everything set up early. Music and MC job excellent . Uplights he set up for us was great. Got the guests involved with games.
My guests was very complimentary of James. Would definately use for future events.

Our wedding was this past Saturday on 6/11. James provided us with the ceremony music, projector for our slide show, uplights, and DJ/MC for our reception. He did a great job overall despite very minor technical difficulties with the slideshow. We loved the lighting. James is incredibly helpful, and sent us song ideas for each part of the wedding e.g. processional, grand entrance, etc. We met with him twice...the initial consultation, and then to provide him with our music list & slideshow. Both times, he was accommodating and met us half-way. He's also very responsive via email. We recommended our friends to him, and he's giving us a $80 referral fee. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ/MC.

We loved James! He met with my husband and I and answered all our questions. He is very VERY organized which really helps any bride and groom planning their wedding. He provided us with lists to fill out if we had specific songs we wanted played. Everyone at our wedding loved him, especially us! My only advice is only let your guest put in song requests to James if you REALLY want them to request songs hahaha because they WILL request songs and all your (bride & groom) favorite songs might not have time to get played (if you have to leave the venue at a certain time). But ALL our guests loved him and so did we!

James is the most professional and well organized vendor we had the pleasure of working with. He made such a good impression with his M/C skills during our reception
that not only family, but people who worked at the venue were asking where we found him. That really impressed us because venues see a lot of events and a lot of DJ's. James kept the dance floor packed and handled any and all problems that came up.

James did the music for our ceremony and reception. He was extremely easy to work with and very responsive (which is why the process was so easy). He played everything on my playlist, worked with last minute changes, and never pressured us to book him during our initial meeting (I met with several DJs). He offers various services, but he never imposed any unsolicited service on us and I asked him to do our ceremony just before the wedding and it all worked out perfectly. I recommend him because he is very professional and ended up being one of the easiest vendors for my coordinator to work with (again, the responsiveness). He's also honest (we had an accidental overpayment and he helped us out).

We were planning our wedding from across the country, so we ended up booking James over the phone somewhat last minute after hearing about him through a friend. From the initial call, we knew how professional he was. He takes his job seriously and it shows. He is also extremely pleasant, organized, and knows what he's doing! He worked w/ us to come up with games for the reception (we used him for both DJ and MC services) which people loved! He's also a great DJ and made sure to play all the songs that my friends requested.

I would recommend James to anyone who just wants to have the peace of mind in knowing that they are working with a completely organized, professional DJ/MC who takes his job seriously and won't let you down.

James provided LED Uplighting for my wedding. Unfortunately, by the time I found him, we had already booked our wedding DJ/MC so we did not use his service for that and so our review will be based on our experience with him to acquire uplighting for our wedding. It was such a pleasure working with James. From our very first meeting, he was friendly and energetic and accommodating. He arrived on time and with equipment ready to show us what he is able to do as far as LED Uplighting goes. He provided an affordable uplighting package that was more than enough, even for the large size reception room we had. James always made himself available to us via phone or e-mail, he was able to make come to life the vision I had for the uplighting in our reception room and during one point of our planning when my husband and I had to change our wedding date, he kindly accommodated us with no problems and on the wedding day, he took care everything personally. The uplighting was gorgeous and our guests raved about it! I have no doubt that James is an excellent DJ/MC as well & I will definitely recommend him to anyone I can. Thanks again James!

When meeting vendors for my wedding, I was always a bit hesitant and always had my guard up, waiting for that "catch" of why I need to pay more for something I don't need. This did not happen with James, he answered all my questions before I could even ask them and his attention to detail is awesome!

He was very accomodating and super responsive to any and all emails/phone calls (even when he was on vacation). All of the music for the ceremony was perfectly on cue down to the specific seconds of the song we wanted. In addition to that he also took care of our lighting and GOBO at the reception which turned out GREAT! He used battery operated LED lights that lasted all night without all the ugly wires in the way.

I was thoroughly impressed with his MC abilities as well, he has a great personality and really got the crowd going and knew what songs to play to set the mood, he was not cheesy or overly done, it was just smooth. During our speeches he made sure everyone knew they were coming up next so they could be ready and even had a glass of champagne ready for them to toast with. I felt like I never had to remind him of anything because he was already prepared for it. He kept the flow of the night continous and everything seemed flawless (at least from my point of view).

I would highly recommend James and all his services to any Bride out there looking for an honest, affordable, and reliable DJ/MC/Lighting & MORE all in one.

**PRE-WEDDING**
We met James at a bridal show in Pasadena; his sincere, straight-forward and friendly attitude caught my attention right away. When we walked up to him and inquired regarding different packages, not only did he explain to us in detail about what he can do for us, he also gave us absolutely NO pressure to book with him on the spot. We felt very comfortable as we get to know what he offers - after my fiancée and I talked to him for about 15 minutes, we had a very good feeling about him and did not want to look further. I've looked EVERYWHERE for months and just couldn't find someone we are comfortable with (both personality and pricing), so after I heard James answering all the questions my fiancée had, I knew he was the one!! James was well-prepared at the bridal show so we were able to see/understand exactly what he is going to do for us as a DJ - and most importantly, his packages do not have hidden fees!! What you see is exactly what you get!

**CONSULTATION/MEETINGS**
James is very accommodating when it comes to communication. We live in OC and he is all the way in LA. He is always willing to meet us in the middle, not to mention, he's very flexible in terms of meeting times as long as you work it out with him in advance. :) We had one face-to-face meeting to go over most details - James spent almost 2 hours explaining all possible options we can consider. We appreciate his patience very very much. Also, he spent another hour or so on the phone with us a week before the wedding to finalize all the timeline details, etc. Overall, James is extremely responsive (email and phone) and very easy-going. He can work with pretty much anything you request. :) James helped us edit a song for our duet performance, and also edited our first-dance-song to our needs.

**DAY OF WEDDING**
As we expected, James came prepared - he knows our timeline very well and was able to improvise or accommodate depending on new requests/needs from us. We certainly appreciate his flexibility because there are things that we weren't able to provide him ahead of time, and he managed to handle everything perfectly. Everyone had so much fun and loved everything he played. We were very satisfied with the fact that there was no excessive talking which usually annoys guests. ;) James did everything we asked for including making necessary announcements effectively. He was a great help during reception because our guests knew exactly what was going on.

Everyone was telling me how great he was!! I am very happy that we made the right choice! :) Thank you SO MUCH James. We had a beautiful and fun wedding because of you!!

-Meeting: We are couple who loves music and can spend hours in the dance floor. Music was a BIG key to our reception. After attending a few weddings with unfortunate bad DJ/MC’s, we vowed that we did not want to be part of those wedding horror stories. So, the hunt to find the perfect DJ/MC began. At our first meeting with James, we instantly knew he was indeed the best DJ/MC for our wedding. We were impressed with his presentation. It was knowledgeable, professional, yet very friendly. We liked that he was able to provide audio and visual samples. When we shared our vision for the reception, James listened and was able to provide feedback on how he can make it happen. We wanted to book him on the spot, but to be safe we decided to interview more DJ/MC’s. After several meetings with various DJ’s, James remained our number once choice.

-Communication: Throughout our whole wedding planning process James was always a pleasure to work with. Every time we or our coordinator emailed James, he always provided a prompt detailed response and was accommodating to our requests.

**Wedding Day**
-MC services: The reception flowed smoothly thanks to James and my coordinator, Kristeen. He made sure all of our important reception highlights (cake, garter toss &etc..) were completed before my photographer left. He was a personable MC and my guests were entertained all night.

-DJ services: My main request for the reception was to keep the dance floor packed all night. James definitely delivered. He did NOT disappoint! The dance floor was busy all night. Per our request he played lots of Latin, hip-hop and top 40's music. He played EVERY song/artist on our playlist--literally EVERY song on our list. We were pleasantly surprised!! Also James was able to accommodate our guest's song request. If he didn’t have a song in his music library, he instantly downloaded it and it was playing at our reception in matter of seconds!

**Post-Wedding**
Weeks after our wedding, guests are still commenting how great James was. Everyone was impressed with his MC and DJing services. We cannot rave enough how great James is. We’re hoping we get to host another huge party, just so we can book James!

**Pre-Wedding**
-Meeting: We are couple who loves music and can spend hours in the dance floor. Music was a BIG key to our reception. After attending a few weddings with unfortunate bad DJ/MC’s, we vowed that we did not want to be part of those wedding horror stories. So, the hunt to find the perfect DJ/MC began. At our first meeting with James, we instantly knew he was indeed the best DJ/MC for our wedding. We were impressed with his presentation. It was knowledgeable, professional, yet very friendly.

James is the mastermind of All the Above Events! No words can describe how truly awesome he is=0). For our wedding reception, he did everything for us (DJ, MC, lighting) so well. He played requested songs as well as added his own song selections to make the party happen. He was also an amazing MC with his lively personality and charm making things flow so smoothly. His lighting was also perfect! His up light color choice for our reception made the room look so beautiful.

Besides being the perfect DJ,MC, etc. James is also great as a business man. He is very organized and he replies promptly to any message you send him (which was important in wedding planning since you have so many vendors to deal with). He is professional, but also a lot of fun to work with. To summarize, James deserves a hundred stars :)

When it comes to James and All the Above Events, five stars don't do them justice! Our wedding took place in late September, but my husband and I still can't stop talking about how fun our wedding was, all in thanks to James. When planning a wedding, we're often told to prioritize. Entertainment was on top of our list, and choosing him as our DJ & MC was one of the best decisions we made. We had already heard great things about him from our friends who had him for their weddings and from our wedding coordinator. He was more than phenomenal - from beginning of the planning process until the end of the wedding. He is so organized, professional, and flexible. I had to plan my wedding from Michigan so he arranged to hold a meeting on the phone, which went flawlessly. Despite his busy schedule, he is so quick in responding to e-mails/call and very organized. He even helped us stay organized by sending us resources and spreadsheets that guided our decisions for the types of music and activities we wanted for the ceremony and reception. As our wedding day drew near, in his interaction with my husband, he took the time to make sure we weren't too stressed about the entertainment part of the wedding - which was tremendously helpful. We also had to make last-minute changes and additions (e.g., uplighting), which was no problem for him. His relaxed and professional demeanor was certainly appreciated, as I get easily stressed out.
Like I said earlier, our reception was a great success because of James. He was very attentive throughout the night and made sure to play music that the guests of all ages would enjoy. There was not a moment when the dance floor was empty. Everyone, and I mean everyone, from kids to adults, danced the night away. They all had a blast. If you have any plans to contact James, do it quickly! My friend contacted him not long after she got engaged, but he was already booked. James, thank you for making our wedding unforgettable for us and our guests!

James Lee, this guy is awesome. Out of all the vendors we hired for our special day, James have been the most superb so far (we're still waiting for our pictures and video). He rocked the house with his fantastic emcee and DJ skills. I was a little nervous at first since half of my guests were younger generation and half of my guests were older generation but there was nothing but positive feedback from both the young and older crowd. Planning a wedding will be one of you most stressful time of your life and you want to hire people that have the talent and provide awesome customer service. James provided both, awesome customer service before, leading up to and during the wedding. And also gave a great performance that kept our wedding very fun. Thank James for you wonderful service.

James was an amazing MC/DJ for our wedding. We got so many great feedback from our guests and how much fun they had. From the day we booked him up to wedding day he responded very quickly to any questions/concerns we had. He was very helpful with the music planning process with suggestions. We came up with a specific playlist and he played them all and played them at the right time to keep the flow of the reception going. I highly recommend James as a MC/DJ he definitely knows what he's doing and is very good at it.

James was an amazing DJ . He was extremely organized and the timeline spreadsheet he provided prior to the wedding was extremely helpful. I was able to fill in all the song requests I had for each part of the wedding and he came through on all of them. He helped make our whole wedding day run smoothly and on time. He also got the party started and had everyone on the dance floor all night! I was extremely satisfied with my experience and I can't thank him enough for making my wedding so memorable!

Having planned my Malibu, CA wedding from Hong Kong without a planner, I was a bit overwhelmed with all the small details. As my DJ and MC, James really stepped up and helped keep the event moving. Even from the planning process, he was extremely prompt in his email replies and was very accommodating to any and all last minute changes that needed to be made. It took a bit of time before all my guests made it to the dance floor, but James really helped get everyone there and dancing. I have heard from many of my guests that they loved the DJ! In terms of service, product and pricing, James is the best and we are so glad we booked him!
