So proud to say that my wedding was one of the first ones I've been to where EVERYONE was out on the dance floor throughout the night....and that is thanks to John - DJ by CJ! I thought planning a destination wedding was going to be difficult, but with a DJ like John, it was easy, relaxing,.....and fun! John had a Skype meeting with me and my bride-to-be for over 3 hours one night going over every single detail of our wedding. By the time our wedding day arrived, we had no doubts that we had chosen the perfect man for the job! From the pre-ceremony music to the cocktail hour to all of the fabulous music during the reception, everything was amazing. John was familiar with our venue (FL Aquarium) and wedding coordinator and they worked seamlessly throughout the night. John brought an incredible sound system, lighting, and created a photo montage that was played during dinner that the guests adored. He even played music videos to accompany some of the songs and it was a HUGE hit! By the time our final dance of the evening rolled around, it looked like a planned scene from a movie. As my bride and I danced to "I've had the Time of My Life" our guests surrounded us on the dance floor and encircled us! What a feeling! We know that if John (DJ by CJ) hadn't been our dj, the night wouldn't have been half as magical - Stop looking now brides and grooms-to-be....DJ by CJ is your guy!!!

Your search is finally over – if you are looking for an incredible DJ that will rock your night all night long - John Strandberg from DJ by CJ is your man!
John has truly been a pleasure to work with. He was easy going, very professional, and he understood our taste in music. My wife and I have never attended a wedding where all guests were dancing, singing, and having a blast. He kept the crowd entertained the entire night. In addition to playing awesome music he had music videos playing on background monitors for some of the biggest hits.... But wait there’s more! John also put together a photo montage of our pictures and had them display on his monitor throughout the night. That really put the cherry on top. We were extremely happy to work with John and are forever grateful that he was a part our magical night.
John, thank you for giving us “The Time of Our Lives”

We are SO happy we chose DJ by CJ for our wedding! John was so easy to work with and you can tell from the first moment you speak to him that he knows what he's doing and truly enjoys it. We had two DJ's at our wedding and they helped to time everything out for the evening from our ceremony to first dances, etc. We had a tight timeline (Ceremony at 7pm and Reception ending at 11pm, both at the Florida Aquarium) and their timing was essential to making the night flow smoothly. Our guests were raving about what a great job they did and my husband and I couldn't have been happier!

John is absolutely phenomenal!!! I was referred to DJ by CJ by a couple of my friends, who have used them for their weddings. They all said they are awesome and made their wedding day perfect with the choice of music and making sure everything runs smoothly. When I talked with John I knew he was the one for our wedding. His personality, professionalism, and overall how he runs his company was beyond incredible. He told me that he would make my day run smooth, make sure that everyone is on schedule, and would do whatever we needed. He did not want us to worry or stress about anything at our wedding. When we went and met him to go over our schedule for the wedding day and our choice of music, John went over everything and gave us many choices of music and different options of ways we can do things at reception. With all being said, DJ by CJ runs a great company and are very reasonable when it comes to the price for the amount of work and talent they bring to the table. We were very impressed with his work and music he played to keep the dance floor full at all times. We would without a doubt use DJ by CJ for other events and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a DJ for wedding or any other event!!!!

Brian and his assistant (fiancé) were a perfect team and they covered everything amazingly. I was very worried about the reception, by Brian took charge and I was able to have a glass of wine (or two) and enjoy myself. He had great ideas for song choices for both the wedding and reception and everything flowed without any issue.

I rated the responsiveness slightly less than perfect because we had to contact him to set up the meeting just prior to the wedding, but no issues after.

We also did feel like the owner of the company (not Brian) misrepresented the total cost when initially speaking with us and adding cost at the meeting just prior to the wedding. Of course at that point (so close to the date) we had no other option but to pay it or not have a DJ. If using this company, I would make sure that the convo and pricing is backed up in an email. Even though we had a contract that did not mention this extra money, they would not budge. My feeling on this did not affect my rating, as I was rating the service I receive from Brian, the actual DJ.

Brian did an amazing job at our wedding!!! He was very flexible and easy to communicate with. He was helpful during our planning meeting and helped us choose a variety of songs for our ceremony and reception. He was able to get a good feel of the crowd and he kept everyone on the dance floor all night. Our food came out late and he handled it so well. He kept the party going ! He was so organized and made our jobs so much easier.

Brian Black was the DJ for our wedding through this company and he was so good it was ridiculous. He made the night amazing, read the crowd easily, and kept everyone dancing and entertained the entire night. No one left early, they stayed dancing to the awesome music he played. I gave Brian lots of freedom to do his thing and I could not have gotten a better event thanks to him. He is a must-have!!

My husband and I chose DJ by CJ for our wedding and could not be happier with out choice. He personalizes everything around the couple to be married. He really keeps the party going and goes above and beyond to make sure all the wedding guests have a good time. We received many compliments on how great our DJ was. He is very thorough, shows up looking very sharp in a suit and also brings an assistant with him. We were aprehensive about whether or not we wanted uplighting and literally DAY OF our wedding, as I'm sitting getting my hair and makeup done, I text John and asked if he could provide uplighting. He immediately responded without a sound of worry and made it happen- the room looked beautiful! If you're looking for a fantastic DJ who is professional and talented, this is your guy!

From the moment we answered the phone we we're hooked. We knew John Strandberg was going to be our DJ and we couldn't wait!!! John took care of us and made us feel like we were his only clients. He kept in touch through out the planning process any time we needed to get a hold of him whether by phone, text or email he responded promptly. There were many answers we didn't have and several options we weren't aware of but John walked us through each and every detail and put our minds at ease. On the day of our wedding he made sure everything ran smoothly and we did not have to worry about a thing. It was an honor having John as our DJ and because of him our wedding was that much more memorable. Our wedding would not have gone as well with him. If you're stuck on choosing we have the answer, DJ by CJ. Can't say it enough DJ by CJ is AMAZING!!! Thanks John!!!
