We are a Better Business Bureau accredited business! We are proud of our committment to superior client service!

If you're looking for a DJ who provides high-quality entertainment without breaking the bank, then look no further! Your wedding day is all about you, so we help cater the party exactly to your needs and wants. We use the most modern technology, and have music spanning the genres and ages. For us, this work is fun, and your party should be too!

We are not "game show hosts," so you don't have to worry about hearing us on the mic all night long. We are happy to emcee introductions, special moments of the evening, and some party motivation...but your guests are not here to see us, so we "let the music do the talking."

We can provide music for your wedding ceremony as well for an additional fee. We also have a variety of lighting effects, including the ever-popular uplighting, to give your wedding a splash of color!

JUST ADDED! We now offer photo booths for your event. Using top of the line equipment, we invested in the best photo booth out there because that's what you and your guests deserve.

Also available either separately or in tandem with DJ'ing is a jazz trio and/or solo piano stylings. For more info on live music, contact us now!

Whatever your needs and budget, DJ By Jake is here to make your day go your way. Get in touch to start the conversation! Read less

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
"Let the music do the talking," is my motto, and I pride myself on being able to cover a wide range of music that is fun for everyone in attendance. I do MC'ing when needed, whether it be to introduce the First Dance, or get more feet onto the dance floor. I try my best at honoring all requests, and keeping the party just that -- a celebration!
What is your usual attire?
I wear a suit and tie, unless the the couple has specified that their reception is not formal.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
With so many other things to attend to on their wedding day, I will first try to acquire the requested song myself, but should all attempts on my part fail, I would ask the couple to provide it as a last measure, with plenty of time in advance to be made aware of this.
How many other DJs do you work with?
DJ By Jake, as the name implies, is just me. This cuts down on talking to a bunch of different people, and also makes it more personal and personable between myself and the bride/groom.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
3 hours.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
I strongly encourage a face-to-face meeting prior to booking my services. (If this is not possible, then a telephone call is recommended.) This will allow both the bride and myself to get a better understanding of each others personalities and how I can make your reception the best possible.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely! It not only makes my job easier, but will make the client's event feel more personalized.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, I bring a 2-speaker set up, and require an hour to prepare the DJ booth. I also offer a second DJ rig, for smaller settings, or for remote locations (such as another room, ceremony music, etc.).
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Lighting is available (which includes 4 multi-colored lights that flash to the music), a disco ball with two pin spots, a strobe, a fog machine, and a 360-degree spinning laser light.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
I require an hour to set up, and an hour to break down. I require the facility to provide a dressed, sturdy, six-foot table, and a covering/canopy (if the event is outdoors).
Do you have any extra space requirements?
I require 3 feet of space on all sides of DJ booth for speakers and room to move.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
I do not use any advertising at events except for placing business cards on the table where I'm set up. The event is about you, and while I appreciate interest from potential clients, I do not want to detract from the atmosphere with an eyesore.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
I am happy to emcee introductions, announce important updates (dinner is served, etc.) or encourage people to dance, but I'm also perfectly content with being in the background and not saying much either.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
I'd change gears musically; put on a slow song that people would respond to, or encourage guests to come to the dance floor.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I do require a meal, however not a break to eat it. I will prepare music to continue to play as I eat.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
n/a
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Having been involved in the mobile DJ industry for many years, I have worked with many other DJs, who are reputable and reliable should any unforeseen event take place.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No. I only book one event per day so that I do not feel rushed, and by extension, my complete focus is on your individual party.
What is your overtime rate?
The hourly rate and a half.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
I charge $25 for every 25 miles beyond my base of operations, both ways.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
50% non-refundable

I wasn't able to book DJ Jake for my wedding (recommended by a friend), but he brought in DJ Nathan who was fantastic. He listened to our requests and created the perfect mix of classic and contemporary music to serenade our evening/create the atmosphere we were going for. Relaxed, organized, and not remotely "game show host"-y, Nathan was very pleasant to work with and did a great job.

Jake was excellent! From when I first met with him when I started looking for vendors, until the day of our wedding. He was very easy to talk to, always quick to respond to any questions (even the silly ones) and was willing to work with any special requests we had. Rob and I love the online system to choose songs and Jake was happy to find any song we wanted that was not in his database at the time! Rob and I wouldn't change anything, especially the music! Thanks Jake!

DJ by Jake did a fantastic job at our wedding!!! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ! Jake is truly a hidden gem. We did a lot of research and talked with a lot of DJs in NH and MA but none of them even compare to the quality service Jake provided! He has helpful online planning tools, responded quickly to questions, arrived early to setup, made sure he knew how to pronounce the names of our wedding party members before they were introduced, played all the songs we asked for and added additional songs we loved! During the planning process, there were some songs he didn't have in his database but had no problem finding them. He provided us with a link to send to guests for song requests. Our guests loved that they could request songs through our wedding website. We appreciated that he didn't spend a lot of time talking to the crowd unless we had announcements. Several wedding guests commented on this during our reception. He did a great job during the reception making sure we were on schedule with the timeline we sent him. We like a variety of genres and he did a great job mixing them up so no one got tired of hearing one type of music for too long. We highly recommend DJ by Jake for a wedding or any event! He is absolutely wonderful! He provided everything we envisioned in a DJ and more!!

DJ Kevin was FANTASTIC!!!! He really helped set the mood for our wedding and we received so many compliments about the music. He was very patient with us as we were making our music selections and super helpful during the whole process. We used him for both our ceremony/cocktail hour (which were in the same room) and for the reception. I would definitely recommend DJ by Jake and DJ Kevin to any of my friends.

Jake was amazing. We were planning our wedding from another city, so choosing our vendors was a difficult task. We went with Jake based on the reviews and we're so happy we did! My cousin described our wedding as the "Hypest wedding ever!" True story! The dance floor was packed ALL night, everyone LOVED the photobooth we got from him as well, and Jake made sure to check in with us to make sure we were happy. More than that, though, Jake was incredibly helpful in the planning process. I think I sent him a 3 page email with all my questions and he answered them all the same day with everything I needed to know. So, in addition to being a great DJ, he'll be one of your best vendors- cant ask for more!

I think I sent him a 3 page email with all my questions and he answered them all the same day with everything I needed to know. So, in addition to being a great DJ, he'll be one of your best vendors- cant ask for more! Read less

Exceptional DJ! The flow of the wedding was seamless and the song selections kept the guests on the dance floor the whole night. Three weeks after the wedding I am still receiving comments on how great the DJ was. Jake was very professional throughout the entire process. I appreciated his online page tailored to our wedding which provided a line of communication for event expectations. Jake provided the perfect balance of visibility and transparency during the event. I would highly recommend Jake to anyone.

We received many compliments from guests about Jake and everybody was dancing the entire night. Jake's website was easy to use and very detailed. He gave us helpful suggestions about the parent dances and was able to fade out our first dance at a great spot. He also did a great job playing music that the guests would enjoy. It was a great price and we will definitely recommend him to friends.

WAAAAY TOO LONG OVERDUE (for that I'm sorry Jake!)

Hey guys,
I just want to give everybody the heads up that DJ Jake is the real deal. He was nothing but completely professional and prompt in terms of answering all of your questions and being responsive with everything. Our wedding was on Saturday, 03May14 at Butternut Farm Golf Club in Stow, MA. Jake was there on time and worked with our wedding coordinator(s) to make sure everything was perfect. Jake's online tool/ playlist kit was so valuable and the best part was he made sure he had EVERY SONG WE ASKED FOR! We love music and had some random requests thrown in but Jake took care of everything. The cocktail hour went off without a hitch and the crowd loved listening and guessing to all of the Vitamin String Quartet renditions of all of today's pop hits. After our introduction to the custom request of Mat Zo & Porter Robinson - "Easy" he laid back and played a smooth variety of dinner music that the crowd loved. Never once did he do the "Bob Barker" thing and try and lead everybody on the dance floor or dare I say it lead a Macarena, Chicken Dance, or Limbo. Jake let's the music speak for itself. The reception/dance party followed by US/UK's top 40 hits mixed with our requests. Several people were "shazaaming" songs throughout the evening because Jake had songs playing that we loved that nobody else knew yet! People ask me what my favorite part was and I always tell them the same thing "We had 140 guests, and literally halfway through our reception all 140 people were dancing their buts off!"

Jake you rule man, keep doing your thing.

Bit of a hidden gem, don't wait too long on this one...

Jake was a referral from a friend of ours for our wedding and we were so lucky to have him. Jake did an amazing job keeping our wedding guests (and ourselves) dancing the night away on our big night. We loved Jake's pre-wedding planning tools that made the preparation for the big day really easy. Jake provided an easy to use online portal where we could create our Must Play and our Do Not Play lists as well as allow our guest to put in song requests.

He did a great job emcee'ing our event as well as fielding requests from our guests to keep everyone on the dance floor happy. His prices were great and worked with our budget. We highly recommend DJ by Jake!

Jake is a great DJ at a great price. We wanted someone who would just play good music and not do all that cheesy dj stuff you always see at weddings! He was super cool and just made the announcements we wanted and kept the dancing going all night. If you want a cool guy that plays good music without the cheese, he's your guy. He has a great website where you can add songs to your play list, your 'do not play' list and even label things like "fist dance song" or "cake cutting song". He didn't play every single song on my play list but I think it was better that way because he played things that were sure to keep the party going and please all the guests in a way that my complete play list might not have. He knows what he's doing and everyone there kept saying what a great DJ he is! Thanks Jake!

I'm in my last year of law school, work at a law office, and I hired Jake about 4-5 months before my wedding so needless to say things were hectic! From the beginning he answered my emails and questions within hours if not the next day. The week of my wedding in Princeton, MA, was even busier when 14 family members from Texas flew in to Boston and spent a couple of days sightseeing. Jake was so attentive, and even reminded me a couple of times of things and information he needed to make sure my wedding went off without a hitch. He stayed on top of requests, questions and timelines without my having to think about anything. At the wedding he was very alert and responsive to my guest's mood. (i.e lots of fun country songs for 2-stepping, and fading songs at appropriate times). Honestly he was soooo helpful! Jake kept the music going and my guests happy, and it was awesome to have him take the stress of running the reception off my shoulders. It made the night so easy!

DJ Jake was great, and really helped to make our wedding day perfect! He provided both DJ and photobooth services at the event. From the moment we started planning a few months before the wedding, Jake made himself available for calls to discuss exactly what we wanted. He provided suggestions for song choices, etc. when we were stuck, but was always willing to go with the choices we decided on. He was very responsive throughout the whole process. During the wedding, he kept people out on the dance floor and was very charismatic without taking over the event- it was important to us and to Jake that my fiance and I were the star of the show the whole night :)

We had picked a handful of songs that we wanted him to play, then he took suggestions, and played the music he knew the crowd would like, he was spot on and played terrific songs for everyone young and old. My grandpa lip-synced a song and Jake had his song ready with a microphone. Jake knew when to talk, and exactly what to say when. We highly recommend DJ By Jake -- we received numerous compliments from friends and family about the wonderful job he did and the music he played. We can't thank you enough!!

We are so lucky we found DJ by Jake on here for our wedding in July. I wanted a DJ, not an entertainer. I can't stand the DJs who are on the dance floor more than the guests, and Jake delivered just what he advertises: a professional DJ who "lets the music do the talking." While he wasn't on the floor organizing the electric slide (thank goodness), he did keep the reception moving and communicated what was necessary to guests during the event.

He offered a teacher discount which was AWESOME and much appreciated! His online music request service and database was super helpful and he had a great variety of songs to choose from. He was also very accommodating in some of my crazier requests, like incorporating a few very ethnic Russian songs to appease my relatives and a little Beyonce medley for the bouquet toss. He was very professional and easy to work with on the day of the wedding, as well.

When I arrived at the reception Jake had already started music for early-arrivers, which was so generous, and my first thought was "I love this song!" and that feeling just kept repeating the whole night. From the music played at cocktail hour, to dinner, through the whole reception, he did an amazing job. I've never seen people dance so much at a wedding, and I'm pretty sure I danced more than any bride in history. Some of our friends who are getting married next fall already asked for his contact information because they thought Jake was such a great DJ! Without a doubt one of my favorite vendors we used :)

I can't stand the DJs who are on the dance floor more than the guests, and Jake delivered just what he advertises: a professional DJ who "lets the music do the talking." While he wasn't on the floor organizing the electric slide (thank goodness), he did keep the reception moving and communicated what was necessary to guests during the event.

He offered a teacher discount which was AWESOME and much appreciated! His online music request service and database was super helpful and he had a great variety of songs to choose from. He was also very accommodating in some of my crazier requests, like incorporating a few very ethnic Russian songs to appease my relatives and a little Beyonce medley for the bouquet toss. He was very professional and easy to work with on the day of the wedding, as well.

When I arrived at the reception Jake had already started music for early-arrivers, which was so generous, and my first thought was "I love this song!" and that feeling just kept repeating the whole night. From the music played at cocktail hour, to dinner, through the whole reception, he did an amazing job. I've never seen people dance so much at a wedding, and I'm pretty sure I danced more than any bride in history. Some of our friends who are getting married next fall already asked for his contact information because they thought Jake was such a great DJ! Without a doubt one of my favorite vendors we used :) Read less

One word sums up DJ by Jake...amazing!!!!! Jake was the DJ for my wedding and he went above and beyond anything I could have imagined. He was so helpful in the planning stages and took care of all the music needs. All of pur guests had a great time and we the dance floor was packed right up till the very end.

Thank you Jake for being a part if our day!!!

DJ Jake did a wonderful job with our wedding! First, his song request and event planning web portal was very helpful and easy to use. He also maintained a good level of communication and was very responsive in the time leading up to the big day. At the wedding itself, Jake was very attentive and responsive, paying close attention to what was going on in the room, checking in with us frequently, and making any needed adjustments to the schedule. The music was perfect. He played all our requested songs, including special dedications, and filled in additional music that matched perfectly with the rest. He also kept the energy moving in the right direction, mixing energetic dance music with mellower songs to give people a chance to rest and socialize. We had a very specific idea about how we wanted the reception to feel and flow, and DJ Jake absorbed that idea based on our input and executed it perfectly. It was a classy and fun reception and the guests had a great time. We had a blast as well, thank you DJ Jake!

After shopping around it was clear that DJ Jake has the best price as well! When the day of my wedding arrived I was able to meet DJ Nick who was ours for the night. He was incredibly friendly and professional. Nick was a HUGE hit with my entire family. He managed to get the thirty year old guests as well as the seventy year old guests all out on the dance floor at the same time! We all had an amazing night which we owe to the entertainment!

He showed up totally prepared and with everything down to the second of how we wanted it. He checked in with us when small changes happened and was brief and to the point to not interrupt our day. We received many, many compliments about the music and it's all thanks to DJ by Jake.

He was very professional, played great music, kept everyone dancing, and did an excellent job MCing our wedding without making himself the focus of the evening. We only gave him a short list of requested songs as well as a short do-not-play list and let him take everything from there. DJ Jake was a great value. We would not hesitate to recommend him!

Jake is easy to work with and very professional. He provides a site that's easy to use where you can log in all the music you want to play for each part of the reception (first dance, parents dances, etc.) along with any other requests or special instructions. You can add in all the songs you'd like for dancing and even prioritize them. Once you've filled out all the information online Jake sits down with you to go over it all. The day of the wedding Jake did a great job running the show. He is great at balancing out the songs and kept the dance floor busy all night long. I've been to a lot of weddings and Jake is definitely the best. He comes highly recommended!

He also did a great job MC'ing, and his selection and play order of music was almost hypnotic, it was difficult to get off the dance floor! We would recommend DJ by Jake in a heart beat.

Jake was great; he was professional, responsive, and easy going. He played a great range of music and worked well with our play list. There were a few songs on our play list that it would have been better if they were played at a different time of the night, but you can specify with a note when you would like a song played (cocktail hour, dinner, dancing, etc). He didn't talk too much on the mic during the night, which was great, I don't like it when the DJ is too talkative. And he had no gimmicks at all, which was also great. He just played great music and kept the night going. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about him as well.

I am sure that most people hear that about their weddings, but we are pretty confident that our guests weren’t lying. The dance floor was packed for the entire evening and even non-dancers got up once or twice.

We met with Jake about five months before the wedding to discuss the feel of the event. He was very personable and was quick to reassure us that his focus at the wedding would be keeping the music and the dancing going. He said that he would not focus on being a big emcee and that we would be able to follow the mood of the crowd. After setting up the deposit and all the formalities, we had access to a website that we could use to select music for the structured dances (first, mothers’, last) which was pretty easy and useful.

The night of the wedding itself was great. The dance floor was full for the whole evening and he didn’t even have to play line dances! Jake only played two slow songs, which was absolutely perfect. One of the things that was most impressive was that there were one or two technical glitches (as there will be at every wedding), and Jake handled them smoothly and confidently. I have never seen three hours of constant dancing at a wedding!

Jake was awesome! He played the songs we asked for and more importantly played songs that kept people on the dance floor and having a good time. We had so many people tell us that it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to, and a huge part of that was the music. Not only that, he was great to work with. We highly recommend him!!

Jake was the DJ for our 5 hour wedding reception this past August. Our venue had two connecting rooms, one for cocktail hour/dancing and a dining room, and Jake had set-ups with microphones in both rooms. He did our introductions and all of the announcements at the reception (including announcements telling guests to move between rooms). He isn't a "game show host" announcer, he pretty much just let the music speak for itself. He has an online planning system which makes it pretty easy for clients to provide their timeline, names of wedding party and any other requests/information he needs to know, so we had no issues with any of the logistics. The online planner is linked to his music library which has most songs you would hear at weddings. If you really want a song he doesn't have I think you can contact him and he will add it for you though. On the day of the wedding, we were behind the schedule I had set on the online planner, and Jake did a great job trying to keep us on track (5 hours flies by so much faster than you would think!). In terms of the music itself, some of our guests actually commented on how nice the music was during dinner/cocktail hour, and Jake had picked most of the songs himself. For the dancing part of the reception, Jake did a great job playing the right songs to get everyone to dance, and for the last hour of the reception pretty much everyone there was dancing. Overall I would recommend DJ Jake to anyone looking for a laid-back DJ who knows what he is doing and knows how to play the right songs at the right time so your guests will enjoy the music and have a great time.

He played our requests and mixed his own choices in with them, people were on the dance floor all night and barely came up for air!

Jake was great! His communication whenever I had a question or concern was always fast and helpful. He also made it easy to figure out what I needed to pick songs for (cake cutting, boquet toss, etc), as I originally didn't think about these types of things. He also gave me some recommendations for music when I had no idea what to pick. Jake definitely kept the entire crowd on the dancefloor all night and he didn't interfere with lots of cheesy MC'ing like some other DJ's do. He was professional and everyone had a great time! I am very happy with Jake's service and would recommend him to anyone!

My husband was a college radio DJ back in the day, so he had strong opinions about the DJ for our wedding, and Jake surpassed even his expectations. We had a somewhat quirky list of songs and artists we wanted played, and Jake did a great job not only including everything we wanted, but expertly choosing other music to go around the specific selections. Our guests kept commenting on how great the DJ was and how they could tell by the music they were at *our* wedding and not just a generic fill-in-the-blanks wedding. His professional (yet relaxed, and not at all in-your-face) demeanor was also very much appreciated. On the technical side, his equipment was excellent (or so says my husband, not my area of expertise), and the volume was also adjusted perfectly to the space we were in and the pace of the day (something that's been a problem at other weddings I've attended - no blasting out eardrums during dinner here!). I'm rating Jake a 5 out of 5 on value for cost (as well as the other measures) and to be honest, would still consider his services a great value even if he'd charged more.

You do yourself and your wedding a disservice by NOT hiring Jake. He is awesome! He isn't invasive, or smarmy and he isn't remotely wacky or misguided. He simply plays great music. Tell him what you want to hear and he will play exactly that. Jake can really read a crowd and play exactly what they need to hear to keep their bums a shaking all night on the dance floor. And dance they did. Our dance floor was packed all evening.

And he does this all affordably. Really, really affordably. He was between 1/3 or 1/2 the price of the majority of popular Boston area DJ's.

Jake was the ultimate professional from the initial meeting right up to the wedding. Our wedding was multicultural - Irish and Puerto Rican and he accommodated both cultures. I just gave him the list of the latin music and he did the rest. Jake was super organized and kept the wedding timeline perfectly. He also kept the dance floor going and would change up the music when the time was right. Jake's price was also just right. Don't think you will get less service because other DJs charge higher prices. I guarantee you will be happy with Jake. He's a nice person and a class act.

Jake came to our rehearsal dinner and provided a DJ'd trivia game during dinner that our relatives are all still talking about! It turned what can be a boring dinner into something fun and really got everyone interacting with the new relatives.

Jake DJ'd our wedding on New Years at the Hyatt Harborside. He was phenomenal. He was very conscientious and communicated with us regularly before the event. During the event the music was perfect and changed throughout the evening based on the crowd that remained (became more clubby after the relatives mostly left). There was literally not a single person who didn't dance at some point. Having been to a ton of weddings/bar mitzvahs...I can truly say that Jake is exceptional. We would use him again in a second.

As with some of our other vendors, DJ by Jake was the only DJ we met with. Right away we knew they would be able to achieve the low-key vibe we were looking for. My communications via email during the planning process we with Jake - he was responsive and their online planning form made everything very easy. They were able to use several songs that we provided because they were slightly more obscure.

Our DJ for the wedding was Nick. He was very good, keeping things flowing, announcing when required and generally keeping a low profile. I think people left the wedding thinking "man, that music was good", rather than "man, remember that specific DJ guy" (which is what we wanted).

My only complaint was that Nick arrived around 4:15 for a 5pm ceremony, rather than 3pm as we had been told he would. I understand the traffic on that Friday afternoon was terrible - some people were late arriving to our ceremony - so I am sure that is what caused his delay. But it did make me a little nervous on the day of!

I would recommend DJ by Jake and Nick as a DJ to other brides.

They were able to use several songs that we provided because they were slightly more obscure.

Our DJ for the wedding was Nick. He was very good, keeping things flowing, announcing when required and generally keeping a low profile. I think people left the wedding thinking "man, that music was good", rather than "man, remember that specific DJ guy" (which is what we wanted).

My only complaint was that Nick arrived around 4:15 for a 5pm ceremony, rather than 3pm as we had been told he would. I understand the traffic on that Friday afternoon was terrible - some people were late arriving to our ceremony - so I am sure that is what caused his delay. But it did make me a little nervous on the day of!

I would recommend DJ by Jake and Nick as a DJ to other brides. Read less

Thanks for your review! Why did you rate us a lower score on responsiveness, when it was a last-minute emergency? I feel we responded quickly and efficiently to the sudden issue.

Our wedding was on 4/13/13. I had found DJ by Jake on wedding wire and emailed Jake to see about availability and prices. He emailed me back right away and his prices sounded great. My husband and I decided to meet with him. He was very flexible when setting up a time/place to meet and was very friendly and professional when we met at Starbucks. He answered all of our questions and gave suggestions. He also didn't change the original quote he gave us (which I can't say the same for most of the other vendors I spoke to throughout all of wedding planning). Putting down the deposit and putting in our requests was very easy because it was through his website. As the wedding got closer, my husband called him with a question about the website and he called back right away and agreed to meet with us again to go over details. The night of the wedding went very well. Jake is very good at his job of knowing which songs to play when so the whole night makes sense. He did a great job MCing as well. He has a loud clear voice but does not come off sounding like a game show host. My family had a few surprises for me that Jake was also unaware of but he worked them into the timeline very smoothly. I would highly recommend Jake to a friend.

Thank you to Nick for wonderful evening. Honestly, I think the best part was how many people came up to Frank and I after the wedding and said, the music was great, but most importantly, the DJ didn't blast the music so conversation and mingling could still happen. :) Thank you!

Jake was excellent! Our guests were up and dancing before dinner was even finished, and he reacted to music alluded to during Best Man / Matron of Honor / Welcome speeches, and had it cued up and ready to go. He was very flexible, played all of the music that we wanted him to play, he "read" the crowd, and kept the dance floor packed. We were very happy with his work.

Nicole and I used DJ Jake for our wedding. We had a very non traditional wedding, with a very specific playlist for Jake to use. He was fantastic in working with us and our requests. He knew the songs (some pretty obscure) and played them in the perfect mix. Great job at mixing in some songs that were not on the playlist as well. We would recommend that anyone who wants a very professional, knowledgeable DJ at an affordable price, DJ Jake is your man!

Jake was exactly what we wanted in a wedding DJ. We did not want a DJ who was going to be eccentric or overly insert themselves into the party. He kept it simple and kept with the schedule. He did a great job coordinating with all of the events with the wedding, like when to be seated, announcing the wedding party and parents, when to start the buffet, toasts, special dances, etc... We requested songs of various genres prior to the wedding, and he made sure to play them at the right times and made sure everything flowed together smoothly. We've been to weddings where the DJs were so sporadic with the music that the guests couldn't consistently have fun on the dance floor; Jake made sure with his selections that once people were on the floor, they would stay there. Our ceremony and reception were at the same site, and Jake used a smaller sound system where the ceremony was and played the music for that as well (and made great song suggestions as well).
When meeting and communicating with Jake in the months prior to the wedding, he was always very clear and always responded quickly. He was very easy to work with.

Jake was excellent. I just needed a DJ for few hours during my reception, not during the entire event (since I had live music for the ceremony and cocktail) and he was more than willing to be flexible in that way. Many other DJs I spoke to had a minimum of 4-5 hours. Jake was professional, nice, and was just very good at playing the types of music we liked during the reception. He seemed to have a good pulse on the situation.
Of all the vendors we used for our wedding, Jake was by far one of the ones we were most pleased with. If I ever had a need for a DJ again, I would definitely use Jake.

To name a few could I have this dance by Anne Murray which is my parents song and my mom was just diagnosed with breast cancer a few weeks earlier so this song was very important to my parents and wasn't played and a woman like you was on the must play list and never played also a gone away for the centerpieces was never announced by the dj

Rebecca, I'm so sorry to hear that Nick did not play some of the songs you requested or announce the centerpiece giveaway. I understand that these songs were very important to be played. I was informed that Nick received several requests from your guests and things wee running late, so time started to run out. This is not an excuse but an explanation. Again, our deepest apologies.
