Well, Jamkat was awful after we agreed for them to be our DJ at a Bridal Expo. Mark would not return phone calls, emails, or text messages. It literally took multiple phone calls in order to reach him. For example, I sent him message on September 15, and after repeatedly trying to get in contact with I was finally able to do so on October 2. He never returned phone calls. A week before the wedding he began doing a better job of returning phone calls.
The day of the wedding, he (Mark) was scheduled to be at our wedding to DJ the ceremony music, and HE WASN'T THERE!!! He was scheduled to be there at 3:30 pm and our ceremony started at 5:30 pm. Our wedding coordinator, event manager, husband, and justice of the peace repeatedly tried calling him and he never answered his phone. We had to get married without music , even though we had to pay extra for that service.
He showed up 40 minutes into cocktail hour and stated that he had a family emergency. Those types of things happen, and I understand. However. I don't understand how he didn't call one of us to let us know what was going on and that he didn't have one of the other DJs cover for him ( we were told that he would have back up in case something happened).
The reception music was pretty good; however, he walked away from his DJ station all of the time and was no where to be found. He also didn't do the special requests ( I.e. giving away the centerpieces ).
When it came time to figure the bill, he tried to low ball the price adjustment. He didn't care that he was over and hour late to our wedding. He also ordered two vendors meals and he was by himself ( he told us he would have an assistant)
He was ridiculous! don't use him. Our other vendors said he has done this before.

Jamkat certainly made the planning process easy. They understood exactly what we were looking for in terms of entertainment and helped us figure out the best configuration for our ceremony and venue. Adding in the photography was definitely a good idea, and we highly recommend the slide show. Our guests loved seeing the photos displayed throughout the evening. The staff at Jamkat are all very experienced. They knew how to blend our ceremony music beautifully, and they always seemed to know just the right song to play at any given moment. We had a slight change of ceremony plans prior to the wedding, and Jamkat was perfect in adapting and providing us with the necessary equipment. Our event was both outside and inside, and that was no problem at all for Jamkat. We give Jamkat our highest recommendation, and we think it'd be hard to find a DJ that was more professional and knowledgeable. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without the music and entertainment Jamkat provided, and we'll always remember how much they contributed to our special day.

We chose Jamkat as the DJ for our wedding, and we couldn't be happier with the service they provided! They made it very easy to choose songs we wanted them to play and songs we didn't want them to play. The DJ did a great job, and the dance floor was full all night! All of our guests commented on how good the music was and how much they enjoyed dancing. We had several things change last-minute, including a groomsman who couldn't make it, but the DJ touched base with us quickly before our reception started, and everything ran smoothly. Jamkat was very professional, flexible, and helped give us the exact wedding day that we wanted.

Mark and Cindy Fritchman provide very personalized, professional services. They are truly a one stop shopping experience and have excellent packages and pricing. We felt at ease and comfortable with both which means a lot when choosing vendors. Our wedding was so wonderful because of them. The music was awesome and the photos came out exceptional. She captured moments we didn't get to see. We highly recommend Jamkat Entertainment!

We would like to say thank you so much for making our day even more special. The up-lighting made the room looked so beautiful. The music was great! Everyone really enjoined it and the dance floor was packed:). One thing that I really wanna say thank you is the real time slideshow, you didn't have to do that but you did put the pictures up so the guests could see their pictures up on the sideshow, a lot of my guests really enjoyed it and talked about it. Thank you so much. We very much appriciated.

The team was wonderful working with the Wedding Party and Imortant Family memebers telling them how to stand, where to look, and such. Also they were a big help to the bride and groom during the cake cutting. Although we are still waiting on our Video we know that they captured a few key moments and can't wait to see it!! Would recommend them to anyone of our friends or family memembers!!

I would recommend working with JamKat to any bride to be. It was such a relief to have one point of contact for my DJ, Photographer and videographer. Having the same company provide all three services was the best decision for me. They are all familiar with eachother and work well together making it more relaxed for the bride because JamKat controlled the flow of the day and it was seamless. I did not have to worry about communicating to separate vendors throughout the day. Our video and photo's came out amazing and the music had all our guests on the dance floor.

We also had to deal with the aftermath Hurricane Irene had left and in the last three days before our wedding we had to change the reception venue. JamKat was supportive and accomodating through it all.

If you are looking for a professional company that is responsive and very good at what they do then you want to meet with Mark and Cindy at JamKat.
