Great selection of music for our cocktail hour and reception. Our DJ was very easy to work with while arranging our event and very accommodating to our requests. Professional organization - I would definitely use James Daniel Music again for future functions.

Big Daddy did our September wedding and the dance floor was never empty! The music was amazing and he kept the crowd going. Not one complaint from any of our guests. I had no clue as to what music to use for the ceremony and I left it all up to Big Daddy and he chose amazing songs for the bridal party to walk down the isle to and same for after the ceremony procession. With Big Daddy, you are in amazing hands! Definitely will use again when ever we need a dj!

As the owner of Events by Cool Cat, a full service DJ Company in Upstate NY, I knew we had to have Big Daddy share in our daughter's Wedding Celebration. Having my staff as guests, I wanted to be sure and at ease with who was at the helm for our family and friends on this amazing day. Sean 'Big Daddy' was absolutely the best. I was able to be Dad and not think about any DJ stuff at all. Not only is Sean one the nicest, most genuine human beings I have ever met, he is certainly an incredible MC and Entertainer. His love for my daughter and son-in-law was easy to see. He even came to our rehearsal dinner the night before and was able to meet and get to know family. Seriously, you cannot compare him to others - book him now. It's really a no brainer. The best in biz with the biggest heart and smile!! WE LOVE YOU BIG DADDY!!

DJ Sean McKee AKA "Big Daddy" is an amazing wedding DJ, we couldn't have asked for someone better to be such a big a part of our special day.

My father has been a professional wedding DJ for 20+ years, so our standards are quite high. My family owns Events By Cool Cat in Upstate NY, which means our family revolves around weddings, especially DJing. The right person to DJ our wedding was a HUGE decision for us. Especially for my new hubby, who is also a wedding DJ. We are so HAPPY that we chose Big Daddy to be our wedding DJ.

From day one of deciding to have Big Daddy be a part of our wedding day, he made us feel so comfortable and showed he cared about us. Wedding planning can be so overwhelming, but he was able to make the process much easier. Early in the process, he took time out of his Atlantic City DJ Expo trip to sit down and meet with us. He also drove from CT to Upstate NY to plan with us as we got closer to the wedding. If you need him for anything DJ related (or just someone to talk with) he is always just a phone call away.

On the wedding day, Big Daddy was absolutely amazing. Not only was his DJ/MC skills so awesome, (to the point where he impressed a room full of DJs). He was also amazing in other ways that meant the world to my hubby and I. We were about to do our cake cutting, and we realized we had no plate and no forks. Big Daddy instantly went to our caterer and got that for us ASAP. Meanwhile, he was able to keep the attention of all our guests. He got everyone to sing & dance with us until we were able to properly cut our cake. What could of been a bad aspect of our day, turned into one of our favorite moments. My Dad and Big Daddy planned a surprised for me by him singing our Father-Daughter dance to us...he did a great job!! I could keep writing about how amazing he made our wedding day, everything was just perfect. Big Daddy is AMAZING. If you are looking for the best DJ ever, HIRE him now before he is booked!!! :)

Sean Big Daddy is by far, the most amazing vendor choice you will make in the entire wedding planning process! He truly lives and breaths his work as a DJ!! His passion for making couple's feel extremely special and creating the party of a lifetime is contagious. Every single guest at our 160 person wedding had something to say about Big Daddy. He's the sweetest guy, and his follow up and responsiveness is impeccable. It was a breath of fresh air to have a vendor constantly say "Yes" to my requests and to do so with a positivism that is extremely crucial for a stressed out bride. He went above and beyond coordinating with our other vendors and making my life a lot easier on the day of the wedding. You will not be disappointed with Big Daddy. In fact, he will actually make your wedding that much better by being a part of it. Could not possibly thank him enough.

Wow...I cannot say enough great things about Sean "Big Daddy" McKee. He was essential to the great time that everyone had at our wedding. We were planning our wedding at the Candlewood Inn from the DC area, and from the first point of contact with Sean we knew he was the one to book as our DJ. He has a big personality and has the mission to make sure everyone has fun at the recepetion, and he certainly succeeds. He tailored the music to precisely what my wife and I wanted and got everyone up from their chairs and dancing. I cannot recommend him highly enough. If you are planning a wedding the area look no further - Sean will deliver and make your reception fun and memorable for you and all of your guests.

My wife and I hired James Daniel Entertainment to provide DJ and Lighting Services for our wedding reception on June 27 at the Darien Community Association. They were extremely helpful and easy to work with for the entire process. The light crew set everything up a day in advance and returned at the end of the night to collect everything with no damage to the venue. We had 107 guests at our reception and Jimmy did a great job getting them all up and dancing after dinner. The online program for uploading our requests prior to the event was very easy and Jimmy even was even able to play an obscure track off of someone's phone through his system the night of the party.

Right from the start Sean Big Daddy was our saving grace! Our original wedding performer fell through and we were scrambling just weeks before the wedding to find a new performer. Although we loved the idea of a band, it was proving more and more complicated - but I am so glad we went with a DJ!

I think I spoke with about ten other DJs via email, but Sean was the first one to give me a call! Although the price was a little higher than other DJs his knowledge, experience and charisma sold me right away! He knows exactly what he's doing and he LOVES what he does. We met with Sean about three weeks before the wedding to go over the kind of music we were looking for, what our wedding would be like etc etc. Sean was so friendly and my husband and him instantly hit it off talking about sports!

James Daniel has an online portfolio where you can fill out your information, the schedule for the day, list of introductions, speeches etc. It also has a separate component for songs. You're allowed to choose 75 songs (although im sure you can request more if need be!) and they list recommended or top rated songs for first dance, father/bride dance, bouquet toss etc etc. It's a really useful tool! It certainly helped as our minds went blank thinking of songs.

On the day, Sean was there early, he made sure to come up to us throughout the night to check we were ok, if we needed anything etc. One of our family members requested a song that was on our do not play list, Sean found both of us to see if it was ok to play it. He truly knows what he's doing and EVERYONE commented on how great the playlist was! Our aunt recently sent us a message to say what wonderful memories she had of dancing to Bare Naked Ladies.

We can't thank you enough Sean! And we would highly recommend you for any future weddings!!!

We used Big Daddy (Sean) to DJ our wedding! He was absolutely amazing! My husband and I were very concerned about picking the right DJ for our wedding as everyone going had very different tastes in music, however, Sean knew exactly what to play and seemed to make everyone happen. He is very experienced and knew exactly what to do at what time. We also had a day wedding and we were very concerned about people wanting to dance during the day. He was great at getting everyone involved and on the dance floor and very funny! He was the perfect DJ for our perfect day! I highly recommend him!
