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!

What else can we possibly say about Sean "BIG DADDY" McKee, other than....GREAT on all LEVELS! Big Daddy is not only an AMAZING DJ, he's an equally AMAZING guy. From the day we met Sean McKee, I knew my bride and I were in good hands! Big Daddy was not just our DJ, he became our friend along the way as well! Sean took the time to get to know us, get to know our story, and get to know what we wanted for our big day! Aside from giving him some songs we wanted to use for our reception intros, and ruling out any chicken dances or electric slides, we gave him free reign to play whatever he felt necessary to get everyone on the dance floor, and he did not disappoint!! We wanted to have the biggest party of our lives, and we certainly did, thanks in great deal to Big Daddy and his amazing work. We were promised that every person would be on the dance floor, and those words were as true as they get. There was literally not one person at our wedding who did not hit the floor! We were absolutely lucky to have a vendor crew that all became friends, and were a HUGE part in making our wedding absolutely amazing and unforgettable.... Big Daddy was at the forefront of that group, and brought an energy and CARE that cannot be matched! My bride's father had a secret song and dance planned, and my mother also had a song she wanted kept secret as well, neither of which were spoiled, thanks in part to Sean meeting with them to keep them secrets! Big Daddy also incorporated songs into the playlist that were special to us and captured our personalities which made the night even more special. When I asked him to play Hulk Hogan's "Real American" and it's ready to go within seconds....that's when you know you've got a guy who's prepared!!! There isn't enough words in the world I can use to thank James Daniels and our friend Big Daddy enough for helping make May 1st 2015 the most amazing day of our lives. BOTTOM LINE: Big Daddy DJ's your wedding = Your Lucky!!!! Thank You!

All my guests had a wonderful time at my wedding thanks to Paul! He was very friendly and professional, everyone was dancing! I especially love the website feature the company provides. I could plan the format of the wedding/pick music without having to call or email. As a teacher who can't make phone calls during the day, this was so helpful! Thank you!

Big Daddy Sean McKee is THE man. He DJ'd my friend's wedding a few years ago and ever since I knew he had to do mine. Sean is not your average DJ; he keeps everyone engaged, dancing and totally into the party. He is the nicest guy, clearly has tons of experience and went out of his way to make our night a unique experience. Everyone said they had a blast at our wedding and I am positive it was because of him - the DJ is everything! Thank you, Sean and Premium Entertainment!!

Paul Lacano of James Daniel is awesome. We knew we were in good hands when we first met with him. He has an awesome personality and a great knowledge of music that gets people excited and up dancing. His experience with weddings really sold us too because all the help you can get from tried and true experience is priceless. Paul made sure we had everything covered with our ceremony and reception music and helped us follow our timeline to the T! Our guests of all ages couldn't stop telling us how much fun they were having and how great the music was. Thanks Paul!
