Hello,

I am a NY based DJ with over 20 years experience. I will customize your wedding to your exact specifications. What sets me apart is that not only am I spinning at weddings every weekend but that during the week I also work heavily in the NY Fashion Industry. I DJ now, and have been spinning, for all the top designers such as Calvin, Ralph, Vera Wang, and Donna Karan at incredible events at Saks, Barneys, Bloomingdales etc. and for such noted celebs as Beyonce, Anne Hathaway and Rihanna for INStyle Magazine, Marie Claire,Glamour and others. Being fashion forward I offer a more upscale personalized wedding service to a more savvy, urban, discerning Bride and Groom that are in the know. I am definitely not your run of the mill suburban, wedding/bar mitzvah, DJ company.

I am based in the NY Tri-State area,but DJ also from Philadelphia, DC, Virginia,and from Montreal to Miami and also all over the world. From LA to San Francisco, Hawaii to Jamaica, from Greece to Italy,Turkey and Spain, destination weddings are no problem at all.

I have a vast array of clientele from all walks of life.This abbreviated list includes Jewish weddings, Korean, Chinese, Filipino, Arabic, German, Indian, British, Japanese, Greek, Italian, Spanish, French,Persian, Jamaican, Russian, Thai, Vietnamese, African, Carribean, etc. and the list goes on and on. I pride myself in having crossed all musical borders, and all musical boundaries and genres. I can also play the actual wedding ceremony as well if it is at the same venue as the reception. I've DJ'd thousands and thousands of events over the years and will offer a list of 150 clients for you to call for referral.

Once we speak, we will try to arrange for an initial meeting near my studio in Chelsea NYC, or near you if needed. My presentation will include showing you magazines that feature me in articles, showing you some "Thank You" cards, and a quick slide show from current weddings, all in well under an hour. My services are listed in New York Magazine, Time Out, Brides, The Knot, Wedding Bee and many other publications currently on newsstands and online.

All in all I strive for the ultimate in client happiness by taking time, offering a "cut above the fray" one on one service, never farming out an event, and always being 100% hands on, to deliver the ultimate journey with your vision always at hand for your complete satisfaction.

I look forward to hearing from you! Please call me at 646-554-5148 or email me johnnystuart@gmail.com.

Warm Regards,
DJ Johnny Stuart Read less

DJ Johnny was very helpful and responsive during the preparations leading up to our wedding in Jersey City, NJ in May 2014. He has a vast knowledge of song styles and can match what you want your overall theme to be perfectly with his choice of songs. He also seamlessly weaved in the specific songs we wanted to include in our reception and ceremony. Johnny was expert in coordinating our live singer with her needs of music tracks and sound. Johnny had the perfect mix of upbeat and slow songs and knew exactly how and when to play them to add to the overall success of our day. Johnny has done several large events for us in the past few years from 60- 200 people and has always been professional and amazingly helpful and fun! We are a gay couple and it was very important for us to have a DJ that would be excited about working with us to create a special day. DJ Johnny came thru in every way possible and we would highly recommend him and his services to any couple looking to have a great experience. There is only one DJ and his name is....Johnny Stuart!

DJ Johnny kept the party going all night!!

He was easy to work with, super flexible when we were scheduling meetings, had as many prep conversations with us as we needed, put together a detailed timeline with every song we wanted to play for all of the key moments, and did a great job with music at the cocktail hour, throughout dinner, and then had people on the dance floor until 2am!! Even our parents and older relatives were dancing.

DJ Johnny is well worth his fee and THEN SOME! Don't waste your money on a huge band when all you need is one amazing DJ!

My husband and I could not be happier that we found DJ Johnny! Johnny was the DJ at our wedding last weekend, and I can honestly say that everyone had the time of their lives! The dance floor was packed from start to finish, and Johnny put together an amazing play list.

Johnny was so much fun to work with from start to finish - he has a great energy, and he was also so responsive to all of my questions and requests. He worked his best to make sure that we were 100% happy with his services, and the wedding was a big hit, in large part thanks to him!

If you want a great party where guests will dance all night, Johnny is definitely the way to go!!

I have to start by saying that I don't usually posts reviews, and I'm also not easily pleased. BUT, I remember thinking during the wedding, "Oh my god this is AMAZING, I have to post something!" The dance floor was packed from start to finish the entire time. Everyone from younger friends whom I expected to dance, to my 70 year-old mom and relatives of all ages from different countries had so much fun. We had two distinct "cultures" represented and he somehow found songs that made everyone beyond happy. It was like an entire night of those songs where you just have to get up and dance. I heard, "Where did you find this guy? He's GREAT!" from everyone both during and after the wedding! We truly had the best night, better than we even imagined and Johnny was at the helm and as excited as we were. The wedding reception went 2 hours longer (!) because we were having so much fun and it was no problem for him - nothing was! He also didn't let just anyone to grab the mic to make a speech without our approval, which I appreciated. Wedding planning can be stressful and Johnny could not have made it any easier- the consummate professional from start to finish. He got us organized on other aspects too and felt like a wedding planner!
During our DJ search we met with part-timers from entertainment companies who ALL pushed the "lighting package." We wanted a classy and sophisticated - but still very fun - wedding and thank god we found Johnny who knew without asking that we did not want strobe lights! He did the ceremony music too which was great. He responded to my emails seemingly immediately and we're SO glad we found him. It was more like he was a friend who happened to be a fantastic DJ than someone we hired - not an easy find.
Simply put, we looked around A LOT and you won't find a more organized, professional, responsive, and enthusiastic DJ anywhere. It was really the most fun night ever because of him. I don't remember doing anything but dancing!

I did a TON of research on DJ's when planning my wedding because the music/dancing was the most important part for me next to the food. I hired a wedding planner to help me through the decision making progress and called/researched about 10 different DJ's that she suggested. Johnny was the ONLY one that seemed as excited as I was about my wedding. His confidence and enthusiasm about music were ultimately what made me decide that he was by far the best choice. His take on being a DJ was so different then anyone else that I had spoken to. His focus was getting to know me and my fiance on a personal level so that he could design the evening that would make us dance the night away and have the time of our lives....and we did. By mixing the music from old to knew, all of our guests were on the dance floor from the start and he seamlessly blended the songs so that there was NEVER a dull moment. It took all my strength to walk off the dance floor even for just a moment because I was having the best time dancing with everyone. Johnny left us with lasting memories of a perfect evening full of fun, laughs, and non stop dancing. His excitement and enthusiasm is contagious and shows through his music. To all the future brides reading this review...when you have confidence with the people you choose to be at your wedding, it takes a huge amount of stress off your shoulders because they take care of it, have everything under control and DELIVER. I highly suggest Johnny if you want a DJ that does exactly what he says he's going to do...listen to your vision, communicate communicate communicate and create the most amazing evening for you and your guests. Its two days after our wedding and I have friends and family still telling us that our wedding was the most fun they have had dancing the night away....thanks to Johnny.

We met Johnny through a friend who recommended him after seeing him DJ an event for the NY Brazil Foundation. Johnny met with us several times and made sure to incorporate all our ideas for our wedding--big and small. Our biggest requirement was providing a mix of music, since my (now) husband has French family, and I have Taiwanese family, so it certainly wasn't an easy task. We gave a ton of "required" songs to make sure it would appeal to everyone, and Johnny willingly worked off our song list to make sure any additional choices fit with ours (and even followed our extensive "do not play" list!). The night of our wedding reception, when the first song came on, the dance floor was PACKED. Literally. My mother-in-law said she'd never seen her father dance, and he was on the dance floor. I've never seen my parents dance, and they were kicking up a storm. We had people telling us afterwards that they'd never seen the dance floor that packed at a wedding before. Suffice to say, we were incredibly impressed with Johnny's skills--he did a fabulous, memorable job--so much so that days after our wedding, we had several people request his playlist! Thanks again, Johnny!

Where do I begin? I knew the instant that I met Johnny that our wedding would be amazing: full of life, full of love and full of DANCING! Our dance floor was never empty, people are still talking about the playlist and what an amazing job he did. Johnny is world-renowned and has worked with the top people in the industry-he makes you feel like a superstar and his attention to detail makes what would otherwise be stressful (as the planning process is!) into a journey of excitement and joy, breathlessly waiting (as you've danced your a** off at this point) for song after after song to be played. Johnny's repertoire of music is unparalleled and this coming from a music aficionado who has 20,000 songs on her Ipod! I could not have asked for a better DJ and for those of you who know the impressions that people leave with after your wedding revolve around food and music, your mind will be put at ease and you will have the time of your life at your wedding. Thank you so much Johnny - it was the most magical day!

DJ Johnny was a total hit at our East Hampton wedding this past summer. He had people dancing between meals and from the minute he got behind his DJ table, he did not stop playing. Johnny was a pro from our first meeting and I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation. We asked him for some obscure songs, which he found and played at just the right times. He did not miss a beat, is easygoing and responsive and turned our wedding into a huge dance party. Merci DJ Johnny!

My husband and I hired Johny to be the DJ for our traditional Indian wedding, as well as our cocktail hour and reception. He was amazingly open and receptive to the idea of DJ-ing a Hindu wedding ceremony. He proactively got in touch with the priest for any cues, with the events coordinator at the venue, as well as family members, to get a firm grasp on types of music, timings, and schedule of events.

He was very meticulous in making sure he had a schedule of the day. Johny also met with me in person prior to the wedding to talk about my expectations, to discuss the mood of the reception, types of songs, and how I envisioned my special evening to be. We also discussed how to transition from wedding to cocktail hour to reception to dinner and then back to dancing. Johny, who is obviously very experienced, made sure to bring our attention to all these things, and we really appreciated his insights as to how to ensure that we didn't have loud dance songs playing during dinner, etc.

My husband and I also made a strict "do-not-play" list, for the reception, which he was also open to, as well as our suggestions for certain bollywood songs that we wanted to play for our guests.

If we ever had another party or event, we would without a doubt ask Johny to be our DJ. His enthusiasm, obvious love of music, attention to detail and personality made our wedding an amazing experience. Even a year after the event, we have friends who still rave about the music and how much fun they had dancing the night away.

DJ Johnny Stuart was our wedding dj at Manhattan Penthouse in NYC and we were thoroughly impressed! My wife and I are very in tune with music, and had a set parameter of songs that we wanted to hear at our wedding. Johnny was able to incorporate most of our songs into the evening perfectly, and he was really able to understand what we were looking for and gave us exactly what we wanted. This is a far cry from what we've witnessed in other wedding dj's who tell you that you will hear your playlist but do their own thing. That was not the case with Johnny at all. The dance floor was packed until people literally couldn't dance anymore!
From the moment we found him on NYMag and got in touch, he was very professional, accomodating, and was really on top of coordinating the musical portions of the event for us, without being too pushy or too overbearing at all. The price he provided us was excellent when compared to other ny wedding dj's, and we are 110% confident we made the right choice for what we believed to be the most important part of the reception. We took pride in trying to put together a good musical selection for our guests on our big day, and Johnny helped deliver that perfectly. All of our guests commended us on the music, and many are planning on using him for their future events.

Thanks Johnny for the great service and job well done!

We were very pleased with DJ Johnny's services for our wedding reception. We only gave him 3 days notice, but in the short span of time Johnny helped us choose the songs, plan the toasts, cake cutting, first dance...everything that would normally take weeks or even months. In the end Johnny pulled through and the reception went perfectly, everyone had a good time, highly recommended.

I have nothing but great things to say about DJ Johnny Stuart. My wife (then fiance) discovered him through the Knot, and from the onset, it really was a pleasure working with him. DJ Johnny was extremely open to our music choices and likes/dislikes. He was one of the few vendors that gave us absolutely no 'lip service'-- he backed up everything he said with actual action. Our wedding was not local to Manhattan, and that did not pose to be a problem for Johnny. He is charismatic, enthusiastic, and really cares about what he does and how he does it. I consider Johnny a friend and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Thank you for going over and above Johnny!

We loved working with DJ Johnny Stuart!! From the beginning to end, he was extremely responsive, tailored our music itinerary to our reception, and played the best songs!! He was great emceeing our reception also, and did a great job with the introductions and getting people energized on the dance floor. I was a little worried that no one would want to dance because we had a daytime wedding, but thanks to Johnny and the awesome music he played, we had lots of people out there having fun. We really enjoyed working with Johnny and highly recommend him!!

Johnny Stuart was one of the best investments we made for our wedding. From the start he was extremely professional and was able to understand exactly what we wanted. He was available whenever I needed to run something by him or ask him a question. We told Johnny that we wanted our reception to be a "dance party" and he had people dancing from the moment it started until the lights were turned on. He was able to read the crowd and knew exactly what to play. People are still coming to me telling me that it was one of the best weddings they have been to because they had so much fun. I would recommend Johnny to EVERYONE. If we could have kept the reception going on longer we definitely would have! Johnny is amazing at what he does!!!

DJ Johnny Stuart, was an amazing help and great DJ for our wedding! My husband and I married over Labor Day weekend in September of 2010.

We had 123 guests, many whom have never been to NY before, and many whom flew in from Germany and Switzerland. It was very important to us that our guests felt like they were attending a chic, cool NYC wedding. My husband and I are both in the fashion industry, so for us picking Johnny was an easy choice. We were both impressed by his outstanding resume and reviews. He has great experience DJing for magazine shoots, runway shows, and high profile celebrity events. This gave us a lot of confidence that he would know how to please a diverse crowd of all ages and backgrounds.

My husband is very rock and roll, and I'm a mix of rock and country. Neither of us care for "club" type of music. So it was also important to us that our DJ love music of all kinds. Johnny, was exactly what we hoped for. He played a beautiful, fun, mix at our reception.

We held our ceremony and cocktails on a yacht for 2 hours. For this, Johnny created a CD for us to play on the overhead. In the meantime, he was at our reception's location at the Water's Edge getting set up for the reception. My cousin was supposed to play the keyboard during our ceremony. But like in the movies, my cousin called me the morning of the wedding to tell me that his father had lost all of the music sheets. I called up Johnny right away to see if he had any suggestions. My cousin was going to play songs that were meaningful to my husband and I, and was not prepared to play anything traditional. Johnny was extremely helpful, in helping my cousin find a place to buy music and also put us through to a friend of his who may be able to help. He also was quick to tell my cousin of a website where he may be able to find the music.

As with all weddings, not everything goes as planned. Another issue that arose at our wedding, was that our yacht which was supposed to transport all the guests back to the initial meeting point, ended up having mechanical problems, and the guests had to take a ferry back. They had to do this in 3 trips. So we asked if Johnny could play for an additional hour. His response was a cheerful, "I'm here, anything you need, no problem."

Johnny's expertise, professionalism, energy, and positivity are a few of the many wonderful characteristics you will experience if you choose Johnny for your event. He will not let you down. He is always available to talk on his cell phone or via e-mail. Which is wonderful, because big events can be stressful, but he makes you more relaxed and happy.

DJ Johnny is really a great guy whom you feel is more like a friend than just some vendor. For an important event in your life, he is definitely highly recommended!

We were in need of a customized CD compilation (about 6 hrs worth) for our cocktail reception and dinner reception, and Johnny provided us with a fantastic mix of music, all according to our specific preferences.

The three things people remember about a wedding are: 1) Was the music good and was every one dancing?, 2) Was the food good?, and 3) the location. I am glad to say that our guests were dancing throughout the night. DJ Johnny didn't take "breaks" like a lot of DJ's or bands so the party was continuous. He felt the crowd and knew when to change things up. I've been to a lot of weddings where no one is dancing and trust me--- you don't want that to happen at your wedding. So, pick DJ Johnny for a sure thing!

I cannot say enough positive things about our fabulous DJ, Johnny Stuart. Because of his guidance during the wedding planning process and flawless execution on the big day, our wedding party was ROCKING and beyond anything I ever dreamed of. We had a complicated space (not your typical ballroom) to work with as well as a complicated schedule, which included a first dance (that I had to change dresses for), a musical performance by the Groom, and numerous speeches. On top of that, I also brought in a saxophone and bongo player to perform with the music Johnny was spinning and everything worked out perfectly.

Johnny is a very professional DJ that is able to not only help you choose the music your crowd will love. Everyone loved not only the music but the DJ himself!!! Johnny's presence is positive and so energetic. If I ever have another party, I will 100% work with Johnny!!

DJ Johnny Stuart was enthusiastic from the very first phone call to the follow up email he sent us after our wedding. His energy is infectous. He was responsive to any and all questions that we had throughout our planning process. Our wedding was unconventional in the fact that in addition to the DJ we had an 80's cover band who were limited in their experience working weddings. Johnny helped with the transitions of the night from band to DJ and back to band, toasts, cake cutting, etc. He even helped my sister and husband plan a surprise slide show presentation and kept me completely in the dark about it! everything was flawless at our wedding. He respected our music choices on our 'play' and 'dont play' lists and augmented where appropriate. Our wedding was exactly the party we wanted and the music (all of it) was what made it that!

All of our guests had a great time tearing up the dance floor -- from my college friends to my conservative, lawyer father who couldn't help but give him a glowing review at the end of the night!

Here it is 4+ years since my weding and I am writing a review...why? Well, I recommended Johnny to a friend for her recent wedding in November and after seeing Johnny again I was brought back to my own experience. The most important thing to my husband and I for our wedding day was music. We wanted everyone to dance and have a great time, we wanted a true party. Since we made that a priorty that put a great deal of pressure on finding the right person. Johnny came highly recommnded by a friend, so we did some research, took the friends advice, and hired Johnny. That was by far the easiest and best decision made during the wedding planning process. He was always professional and easy going. There was never any angst on the lead up to wedding day. He returned every phone call in a timely manner and was helpful and easy going with the music planning process. He arrived on time and proceeded without incident. Johnny helped the night flow smoothly. The wedding guests danced the entire night. The dance floor was never empty!!! He helped make our wedding very special! I would absolutely recommended him to anyone no matter the event.

Johnny was the DJ for our wedding in New York in 2007 and he was AMAZING!! We had a mix of guests with diverse musical tastes (from urban hip-hop to Irish ballads) and Johnny kept everyone moving. I remember thinking "This is awesome! Everyone is on the dance floor with no signs of tiring, and we haven't even had our appetizers yet!" Working with Johnny on the planning in the weeks and months leading up to the wedding was also great - he had great suggestions and always had great energy. Best compliment of all - a friend at our wedding just recently got married - she'd had such a blast at our wedding that she chose Johnny to DJ her event, and (though we weren't able to make it), I hear it was fabulous! I'd work with DJ Johnny Stuart again and again if I could.

DJ Johnny Stuart!!!
Savior of our wedding!!!
A week left to our wedding and our DJ disappeared with our deposit.
(DJ FLYNN - a crook, a thief)
As my wife and I panicked, we called DJ Johnny and with a week notice he made himself available to our service.
What was even better than that was the actual wedding, where he kept the party going beyond our expected time.
He went from classic to hip with out a glitch and allowed everyone person even my none dancing parents to join the dance floor.
The party went on until two in the morning and he stayed playing music and not leaving becuase it was time.
It was a BLAST and definitely recommend to anyone to everyone who needs a professional, kind-hearted, and most of all the Best DJ in the city DJ Johnny Stuart!!!

He was so good, he is even doing my sister-in law's wedding!!!

Johnny did an amazing job with our wedding music. Everyone was up and dancing and having a good time. We had a mix of Spanish/Italian people at the wedding and he managed to get everyone up on the dance floor with a great mix of music. Music was very important to me and my husband so we had very high standards. Johnny met them all. The only reason I am not giving him all 5 stars is because at the very end of the night a song on my do not play list was played and someone was singing Karaoke which we had requested not be allowed. Other than those 3 minutes the night was flawless!

Every single person at our wedding would agree that DJ Johnny did an absolutely amazing job on our special day. My wife and I had a multi-ethnic wedding, and Johnny had French and Indian music at the ready, and entertained specific requests. He put together a fantastic mix that appealed to our very wide range of attendees (in terms of culture, age, etc.)
Should also mention that we hardly gave him any direction and he managed to put together a wonderful night of music. I've never seen EVERY single person out on the dance floor until that night (and they were out there well into the night)
Johnny was also extremely courteous and professional leading up to the event. Couldn't have asked for a better DJ! We are HUGE fans!

DJ Johnny Stuart was great at our wedding and throughout the whole process. He was recommended to us by a friend and we would highly recommend him to others. He was very flexible, responsive and easy to work with. The music at the wedding was great and we received many compliments from our guests. If you are looking for a true professional at a good price dont look any further.

Johnny did an amazing job, we were extremely pleased we chose him as our wedding DJ. He was very organized and responsive from the very beginning. We could tell he had a lot of experience and he had good advice for us in setting the reception itinerary. On the wedding day, he was top notch. He helped make sure the flow of the events went as planned, pronounced all of our unique names correctly, smoothly incorporated the Greek songs into the mix, and knew when to drop the right tracks to get the crowd going. My favorite aspect was his overall enthusiasm which was really appreciated. That was really refreshing for someone as experienced as he is. Music was really important to us and it meant a lot to have someone we trusted. We had an absolute blast, danced a ton, and had quite a few people come up to us afterwards and compliment the music. Johnny's a great guy and a talented DJ, we would highly recommend him.

While I was certainly one of those brides that spent much time at creating ambiance and a unique experience, excellent music for me (as self-proclaimed dancing queen) was at the top of my priority list. I am not a huge fan of bands, though I've heard great ones, so off the bat I knew I wanted a DJ.

The largest challenge for me was meeting/dealing with vendors in NY, where we got married, when I live in CA. When I first started looking for DJ's, I was overwhelmed by the amount of options out there. Fortuately, Johnny came as a referal to me so I was slightly more at ease. I did call around and look at the websites of other DJ's. What I found was a bunch of people who do the standard wedding circuit with nothing special about them.

After being less than impressed with my other options, and knowing I wanted someone who was going to bring more to the night other than spinning some songs, I decided to start working with Johnny. It was an incredible experience! From the day I met him, his energy and enthusiasm about what he does radiated. Music is his passion and creating the night of my life for me, soon became his priority as well.

Johnny worked diligently in making sure what I wanted, and didn't, was incorporated into the wedding. He took note of special people, offered fun suggestions and most importantly made himself available for whatever I needed.

The day of the wedding, Johnny was prompt, well dressed and did everything from set up sound and equipment for the ceremony, provided music for the cocktail hour, and didn't miss a beat during the reception.

Some exceptional moments worth mentioning was his attention to details and the crowd when we did the world's longest horah, our first dance which consisted of a mix of songs and finally the henna ceremony (he worked well along side a drum player we hired)! He didn't break the dancing unless we wanted it and helped keep the unstopable energy going with the crowd.

Without a doubt, if I ever needed a DJ for an event I would hire him again and would encourage anyone to work with him! Thank you Johnny for helping make it the best day ever!!
