When it came time to plan our wedding, one thing was very important to me:

If I heard one hokey, stupid, inane wedding dance song (Chicken Dance, Cha-Cha Slide, etc.), I was going to lose it.

All I wanted was someone to play music as if I were going out - fun, mixed, upbeat, new age mixed with some old school entertaining music. Boom. Jae delivered.

From our first conversation, he and I were on the same page. He's a club DJ as well, and that comes through in his work. From his professional demeanor to the way he dressed, he is 180 degrees of your typical, hack wedding DJ. He sent us a thorough form to fill out online asking us every thing you could think of. We added some fairly random music to our dinner and cocktail hour music - and every one of them was played (he even played Flight of the Concords).

My best man is a self-proclaimed dance champion. He spends more time in clubs than Floyd Mayweather. He said he'd hire Jae in a heartbeat. His music choices were on point, blended well, focused on the crowd's energy, and most of all, never got stale. I can't say enough about his work.

Put it this way - if you want a cheesy wedding DJ who plays music that you should be ashamed to play for your family and friends and think "Achey Breaky Heart" was a good song, you should probably look elsewhere. If you want to value the lives of your guests and watch grandma break it down, hire Jae. The man was born to DJ.

We knew we wanted to hire DJ Melee the moment with Skyped with him. My husband and I are music lovers with eclectic taste. Melee was not only receptive to whatever we wanted to play, but excited about our choices. We ended up with an array of music from all different time eras-1920s 'Post Modern Jukebox'- style during cocktail hour, to rock and roll classics during dinner. There was a polka, an early 90's mash-up and lots in between that appealed to all of our guests. The flow of the evening was seamless.
Melee also conveyed an understated but very present presence as a DJ. We were not going for the overly energetic MC feel "grab your table mate by the hand and circle your table three times now everybody up on the dance floor!!!" We wanted someone to be calling our guests attention to different moments and help direct the traffic without the cheese. Melee was perfect.
He also had beautiful sound quality. We were married at the Branford House which can be challenging since it is three separate rooms of thick mahogany. The music was heard beautifully in each room, the ceremony was clear, the speeches were clear. It was seamless. He's responsive, professional, creative, and really knows what he's doing. Plus he's just a really good guy-someone you want around on your wedding day. We highly recommend!

Jae is an amazing DJ. He provided music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and everything went off without a hitch. His client portal allowed us to make sure we got him all the music requests he needed, and he was great about making sure he had all the songs we needed so that the music would be perfect. He was very professional throughout the process, and was very easy to work with. On top of that, the dance floor was packed all night! All our guests had so much fun dancing, Jae read the crowd perfectly and made the night amazing. We would definitely recommend him to any other couples looking for an awesome DJ!

Jae is great! He was calm, patient and accommodating. He is very professional, and I could tell he was excited about being there with us. Clearly he loves what he does :)

He got everyone dancing (including family members who never get up to dance!). People were still talking about how god the music was the next morning.

He was also great in working with a friend of ours who played the piano during the ceremony. They coordinated on their own so we didn't have to worry about a thing.

I highly recommend Jae!

Great experience! Jae was amazing to deal with throughout our wedding planning procedures. He has a fantastic tool for submitting your preferences and instructions, which worked great was very helpful. He can accommodate almost anything and is super talented. Point in case, I should also mention that we had some guests from the wedding at the second ballroom of our venue crash our dance floor because they said the "music was better"!!! Highly recommended.

My husband and I felt that the music that was played during our event was one of the most important details on our wedding day. I cannot say enough about how Jae listened to each of our requests and exceeded at each of our expectations- he was truly as professional as they come! Every guest commented on the music selection and how the volume was just perfect; every age group was up on the dance floor and our guests could still carry on a conversation without having to scream to be heard ( we've all been to one of "those" weddings). He added special lighting that was the perfect touch and even our even coordinator stated what a pleasure it was to work with him. We know we picked the best DJ in the state (just take a look at the other events he plays at!!!) We cannot say enough about how Jae made our wedding day even more special and our guests are still raving about our DJ selection. Thank you again Jae; I can still hear our wedding song play over and over in my head and I go right back to that moment-that's what a great DJ can accomplish such as yourself!

We used DJae Melee for our wedding and he is AMAZING!! We used him for both our ceremony and reception and he did a great job. He was able to provide a mic for our JP and a mic for out blessing/toasts. His online planning form that is super helpful and really easy to use. It helped save so much time when we were talking to him. At times it was a little hard to get a hold of him, but he is really busy. The cool thing was since we live about an hr away from each other we were able to Skype. This made it so much easier, we were able to talk to him no problem as we were trying to do other wedding things. Everyone was on the dance floor the whole night and keeps saying how much fun our wedding was and how great the DJ was!! I would recommend Melee to anyone, but he books quick so hurry!!

Dj Melee was such an amazing DJ. He DJ'd our wedding at the Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station. We had made a list of songs that we wanted to be played (obviously not enough to cover the whole time) but he played music that he put in the playlist as well. He knew exactly what we were looking for that got everyone up on their feet dancing the whole time!! I would highly recommend him. He is able to put together a piece of music so you can get exactly what you are looking for!

My husband and I wanted our celebration to continue past the traditional end time, so we opted for an after party at our venue. Jason set the tone for our “after party” perfectly. Appropriately, we called the after party “Club L”, and a club it was! Lots of energy, a second grand entrance, and a dance floor that was packed for a second time, it might have been my favorite part of the wedding. Our guests didn’t want to leave! DJ Melee was the perfect match for our after party/club L vision. Thanks Jason!
