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!!!

John was the best DJ anyone could ever have for any event. He really doesn't let any dull moment occur and really gets your guests engaged in the reception. He is an amazing person and really makes it a point to follow through with any requests you make. The uplighting is definitely a must! We are definitely recommending to all of our friends.

Thanks again John,
Cassandra and Nicholas Acevedo

John is hands down the absolute best! Planning a wedding in 7 months was no easy feat, however John made everything as simple as possible. He is incredibly fun, thoughtful and extremely helpful. No matter what stage of planning we were in he offered to help, gave us ideas, and at the end of the day our wedding was absolutely perfect. We couldn't have asked for a more organized, fun and hilarious night. John not only was our DJ but also provided the up lighting which truly pulled the whole venue together and made the night look magical. We can't imagine having anyone else, and are so happy we were blessed with the best. Thank you John for sharing your skills and making our night perfect!

My wedding would not have been the same without John! He helped us every step of the way and created a true show out of our wedding. I have received so many compliments on our DJ and we could not have been happier with our decision. He kept the party going all night long and was flexible to include any and every detail we wanted. Also, if you have NO idea what you want, which was our problem, he has a talent for grasping your vision even when you don't! I would highly recommend DJ by CJ to any bride to be!
