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!

Look no further people, if you want great music and a fantastic DJ, then James is your guy. My wife and I were so happy with our wedding. Quite a few of our guests went up to him during the wedding to ask for his card!

James is fantastic to work with from beginning to end. He's meticulous and organized to the Nth degree. There's nothing that escapes his attention.

I had great communication with James the entire time. He's quick to reply and worked with me on the music especially for the ceremony. We hired a cellist so James had to blend with her on the music. It turned out amazing.

And the dancing after dinner kept everyone on the floor. It was so much fun to see people dancing and having a great time. And that's exactly what James is about; being a top notch DJ and MC.

Take it from me; hire James.

James/All The Above Events is amazing! We hired James to be our DJ and MC and we also hired him to do all our uplights, our gobo monogram lighting, and even play our slideshow. He does it all and he does it amazingly! I could not have asked for anyone better to take care of all that for our wedding. He is very likeable, courteous, energetic, confident, professional, encouraging, organized, and just awesome in every way. When we first met with James, we were impressed. He clearly knew what he was doing and we definitely felt he was experienced and knowledgeable. We did not feel uncertain at all and booked him right then and there.

One thing I have to say is that your MC can either make your wedding awesome or absolutely terrible. James was more than awesome. He makes everything flow. He's aggressive but in a good way. He was able to get people moving and even volunteer for a really fun game - but he did all this without being cheesy, mean, or pushy. I was really impressed.
James did not just impress us the day we met and the day of our wedding. He impressed us through the whole process. He responds to e-mails quickly and answers any questions you may have. He is organized and remembers everything. Some vendors forget certain agreements or things mentioned, but James really remembered everything so you really feel important. He worked with me on the timeline and he helped with song choices. The whole process was just so smooth.

Overall, I would recommend James/All The Above Events. And I would recommend hiring him for all your needs because he delivers superb and quality service! I would hire him again for future events and recommend him to others.

James/All The Above Events has to be your go-to vendor as a DJ. He was impressive, first-rate & a remarkable DJ to work with. We reserved his services for our wedding reception based on our first impression he left at another wedding that my wife and I attended.

Specific highlights about James:
1) He is very concise on what services he brings to the table for your wedding ceremony/reception
2) Very professional and personable to my wife and I. He left a good impression with the wedding guest throughout the wedding reception.
3) He is very detailed-oriented.
4) He provided an MS Excel spreadsheet to cover the basics/necessary details of the wedding/reception
5) Very accommodating for unplanned events in the schedule
6) MC the wedding reception well to keep the flow going at the wedding reception.

He was such a great person to be part of our wedding. He felt like family and asked to take a photo with us as a remembrance. I would recommend him hands down for everyone.

We absolutely loved James and many of our wedding guests complimented his hosting skills as well as his music! We actually interviewed other DJ's who are very popular in LA but didn't feel like they were quite right for us. We were introduced to James through our wedding coordinator and upon our first meeting felt that he was very professional and organized and wouldn't make our wedding into his "one-man show" as we felt that other DJs/hosts might have done. James sent us a list of songs to think about and met with us to go over the list in detail and on the day of the wedding, he executed everything perfectly. As a Korean-American with first generation parents, it was very important for me to have a DJ who understands possible needs of my parents. While we were preparing our cake-cutting event, we hear a blast of a Korean oldies song - it turned out that my father-in-law special requested this song for our parents. James download this song for them right away and enabled our parents to share this truly precious moment together. This is just one example of so many kind and awesome things he has done for our special day. We highly highly recommend James!

James did a FANTASTIC job as our DJ. James worked the ceremony, cocktail hour, grand entrance, and reception and did an absolutely amazing job for all of it (and I was pretty particular with my song selections!). We chose an obscure song for the ceremony that was difficult to find (also there are multiple versions of this song), but he made sure that he had the right one when he couldn't find it. He kept things super upbeat and fun and changed up the music perfectly when people weren't dancing (we had a pretty good section of people who didn't want to dance). Also, he was very accommodating and flexible -- My dad decided to sing a song at the last minute and my sister decided to do a coordinated slide show with a song (also relatively last minute), but he handled everything beautifully. He even sent a link of my sister's awesome slide show to my dropbox after our wedding...without me even asking! He was an absolute professional.

I would highly recommend James as a DJ!!! He also did our uplighting (which was of course perfect), and I think he offers multiple other services. His prices can't be beat for the quality and professionalism.

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.
