Jason was amazing and was one of the highlights of our wedding. Before we hired him we asked him why we should choose him to be our DJ. His response was that he knows how to read a crowd and would make sure people got out on the dance floor and danced. Well he absolutely did this!! The dance floor was full all night long and the next day everyone was commenting on how great our DJ was. Jason was very easy to work with. His planning website makes it very easy to pick out music for each special event at your wedding. He even personalized music for us. If you choose DJae Melee for your event you will definitely have a night full of great music and lots of dancing.

JAE IS AMAZING!!! He was recommended by a friend and we were sold after our first meeting with him. He just was such a nice guy, and really got to know what our "vision" was. Music was a very important detail of the wedding because we wanted to have people dancing the whole time. After meeting with Jae we were so comfortable with him and confident that he would do an amazing job. We signed a contract with him right on the spot- no need to look into anyone else. We got so many compliments from our guests about how amazing he was, and the dance floor was packed the entire night! He did a great job of transitioning from a slow song or cake cutting to getting people right back on the floor dancing. We also used him as a DJ for our Jack n Jill and he was incredible! I couldn't wait for him to play at our wedding. He is very knowledgeable about what he does and listened to everything we asked. He provides you with a site where you can make special requests, and tell him what songs you have to hear, or do not want to hear. He did custom entrances for the bridal party entrances and was always available by phone or email, even Facebook. He also is just a great guy who came out to the school I work at to participate in a Transition Fair we have for the students. He is always more than happy to help in whatever way he can. I would use him for any other event I would ever need music for- he is incredible and definitely played a huge part in making our wedding day as perfect and unforgettable as it was.

I can't say enough good things about Djae Melee! When we were searching for a DJ, I reached out to him based on great reviews and extensive experience, and I'll admit I was worried he was going to be way over budget. Jae's prices are extremely reasonable for the quality of service you get. At our initial meeting, Jae answered questions I didn't even know I had and set my mind at ease that the day would be flawless. Any time I had a question, he would answer it for me even when I was still 6 months or more out from my wedding. The online planning form was super helpful and allowed me to fill in songs as I thought of them, and I was able to make changes up until 3 days before. The day of was PERFECT. Jae totally understood our style of music and played more unique selections that were special to us as well as more well-known selections. He set the tone just right for cocktail hour and dinner and the music was the perfect volume where people could talk to one another without a problem. Our dance floor was packed the entire night. I had friends messaging me for days that their feet still hurt from all the dancing. One thing I loved was how Jae has some unique mixes, so it doesn't just feel like you're listening to Top 40 radio all night. I had multiple people talking about how great he was and how he made the night so much fun. I wish I could do it all over again!

My wedding music was one of the highest priorities for me because I love to dance and wanted a very ‘dancy’ wedding. It was important to me that our DJ was able to read the crowd and encourage a packed dance floor without being over the top or cheezy. After a lot of research and review reading I spoke to Jae and knew immediately he was right for our event. We used him for ceremony, cocktail and reception music.
Jae was great to work with, very reasonably priced and took our priorities and needs very seriously. He offered an online portal for us to document the schedule of the day, spotlight dances as well as must plays and ‘do not plays’. He followed our instructions perfectly and didn’t miss a beat when the mother of the groom wanted to change her song to dance with her son. My dance floor was packed all night and Jae delivered exactly the party I had hoped for.

Jae was so amazing to work with. We had lots of questions for him at the beginning, and he answered all of them. Our wedding was at the Branford House, and we were setting up the venue a little different than normal. Some DJs told us that it couldn't be done, but Jae worked with us to make sure it was going to be set up perfectly and all 3 rooms would be able to hear sound. In addition, he was reasonably priced for his fantastic services. We used him for both the ceremony music and the cocktail music as well. Both were exactly as we had envisioned. We had little contact in the days leading up to the wedding, but we didn't need to. Jae nailed it. Everyone raved about our DJ, and everyone was on the dance floor all night! We had some announcements that we wanted made throughout the night, and he helped us get the message to all of our guests without hesitation. We would highly recommend Jae to any bride & groom looking for a fantastic DJ and a great party! Thank you Jae!!

We got married a few days ago, and our wedding was really fun, people enjoyed my mother-in-law's slide show, people had fun dancing, and it was a great day. However, there were a few issues and near-misses on Jason's part.

Cons:
- Despite having discussed bringing in a projector for a slideshow AT LENGTH with him prior to the wedding, Jason said he knew nothing about a slideshow when my mother brought him the projector the day of the wedding, which caused her significant panic.
- My mother's family is Greek, and we had discussed with Jason before the wedding (when we booked him, even) that we wanted a few traditional Greek dancing songs played at our wedding. Jason informed us that he had DJ'ed for Greek weddings before, and that he had tracks. However, given that there are several different versions and regional differences in these traditional songs, my mother asked for a few examples of tracks he could play in the weeks before the wedding. Jason was not responsive to emails or calls asking for these songs, and when he did send them, they were poorly labeled and he seemed to have poor knowledge of this music. My mother did find one song he had that she liked, and asked him to play it. At the wedding, he did not play this song, but rather a song that we had not requested and that my family does not know how to dance to. When my mother went up to him and asked him to change the song to the one he had emailed us only a few days before, he said he didn't know how to find it again.

Pros:
- He did eventually get the slideshow up and running on the projector and it ran very smoothly.
- When he was playing the dance music, he really got people up and dancing! Our friends and family enjoyed his song choices.

Jason is a great party DJ, but he not very responsive to emails and calls and he was difficult to work with in regards to specific requests that we had for our wedding.

Jae was incredibly professional and helped make both the planning and the wedding day go smoothly. Once we met with Jae and discussed the details, I realized that I no longer had to be worrying about the sound system, lighting, music choices, and emcee-ing. Jae is very easy going and the wedding day results far exceeded my expectations.

Jason was truly a pleasure to work with. He was very nice and accommodating at such a hectic time of planning and last minute changes. He has an online portal for you to set up your own wedding day then be works with you to perfect it. Everyone was raving about the DJ at our wedding. He knows when to change the music with the mood to get people on the dance floor. People that don't dance were dancing all night long at our wedding. He was truly a wonderful DJ and I couldn't be more pleased with his work. He made the night memorable.

I've seen DJ Melee perform at a handful of weddings and wedding related events, and knew right away he would be a perfect fit at our wedding. He is professional, friendly, and awesome to work with. The uplighting he provided for our venue was perfect and so convenient that it could be added into our DJ package. We highly recommend Jae!
