Jammin Beats has been enchanting newlyweds, their friends and family in wedding day entertainment for over 10 years! When you decide on Jammin Beats, you're choosing experienced and dedicated professionals that believe your reception is important. Jammin Beats specializes in weddings but also does a great deal of school dances, birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries. We have a wide variety of music such as swing, country, ethnic, oldies,rock, pop, Latin, 60’s and 70’s up to today's current top hits. We keep our music current by receiving music weekly and get music from when it first hit the charts. If there is a song you need and we don’t have it we will get it with no additional charge to you.

We use top of the line equipment and test everything weekly. We use computers to play the majority of the music. The computer programs help us to avoid skipping and it helps us pull songs up faster for any last minute surprises. We have a second computer with us as backup.



Our disc jockeys dress in a tuxedo at every wedding and can for any other event you have. They will get there about one hour prior to the event for setup with no cost to you. Our DJ's Have at least 6 years Wedding experience. Meaning this will not be their first wedding and have been through it before. We have training sessions twice a year to keep everyone up to date and one the same track. They are trained to be head of the ceremony handling any announcements you have, coordinating the evening with the photographer, caterer and other specialists. They get involved with you and your crowd. Plus they usually do dome grooving behind the booth to encourage other to come out to the floor. If they see us having fun then they are more likely to join in themselves. We will lead them through group dances and do some over the mic motivation.Every DJ has been trained to have a similar style but each has a field the excel in and will be matched up to best fit your style. So that you can have the best wedding possible!

We like to talk with you before the wedding and meetings are free - as many as you feel are needed. We also do many weddings for out of state couples. We utilize email, phone and skype. So you never have to set foot in the office. We can plan in detail what it is you want to hear, starting from your Introductions, through cake cutting and right up to your last dance. If you have any questions please give us a call at (315)289-4340 or email at contact@cnyjb.com Read less

Jamie was a fantastic DJ and master of ceremony. He was professional, skilled and communicative. The satellite setup for providing audio for the ceremony was great. He easily rolled with us as we extended the reception for additional time. His photo booth was a huge hit, and we loved getting an album of all the copies of our guests' photos and notes to us immediately following the reception. Lastly, and most important, he knew how to read the crowd and keep the dancing going. Started with cross-generational classics that got everyone up, then transitioned into pop favorites and then all current hits from today. Really got the floor moving and consistently full for 3 hours+. Absolutely recommend A++

Jammin Beats did a spectacular job at our wedding. I only wish we had 4 more hours with them!! The DJ did a great job keeping everything moving and selecting great songs for dancing! The photobooth was amazing. Being able to get that flashdrive with all of the photobooth pictures on it was so great! Everyone had so much fun with it. I would recommend Jammin Beats to everyone I know.

He did a wonderful job at guiding the wedding along, making sure that all the "events" ie special dances, cake cutting were done timely, which left us to be able to enjoy the wedding. The up lighting that was brought, completely made the space perfect. He was professional, patient and a wonderful addition to our special day. Thank you so very much!

We rented a photo booth from this company for our wedding. They were incredible. While preparing for our wedding we talked to every vendor under the sun and DJ Jammin' Beats was very responsive, email friendly, and went out of their way to make me happy. I even wanted to see what a sample photo strip would look like with our background and they were very accommodating. I would recommend them to anyone and already have to my friend who is getting married next year. Also you can't beat this price for the service you get.

I would hire Jamie again and have also recommended him for company events at my place of employment as well to some friends who have upcoming weddings in the year 2014/2015. Jamie again thank you so much for all of your entertainment and hospitality on the 1 day I imagined perfect and it was!

We were very pleased with this wedding service. We had such a great wedding and the DJ kept things moving the entire time. He made announcements and played all our requested songs. Great service! We also absolutely loved the uplighting. The photo booth was the highlight of the night and gave us so many wonderful memories. Thank you!

I would recommend this service to anyone getting married. An excellent DJ for a great value. My guests even commented on how they loved the way the DJ danced along to the songs and didn't just stand there looking bored like they've seen other DJ's do. Could not be happier with my selection choice. The dance floor was packed all night, it was a great set.

Photo booth was also a hit. I used the photo book they provided in lieu of a guestbook - it was a great! Not only did I get a signature, but I got a signature with a photo booth picture attached. :) The photo book was plain white, if you would like a nicer photo book just buy one at Micheals.

We absolutely LOVED Jamie when he worked our wedding in Lodi at the Ginny Lee on July 19, 2013. He is always the professional, thorough, FUN!, accommodating, and attentive to the crowd, detail, etc. He knows what to play to get people moving and he is aware of the "flow" of the wedding, knowing when to do the event dances and when to change pace. Many people commented on how great the music was; we picked some favorites but left a lot to Jamie's expertise. My husband and I agree that hiring Jammin Beats/Jamie was one of the very best decisions we made regarding the wedding. We wish Jamie all the best in business moving forward! - Jesika & Ben Steuerwalt

Working with Jamie at Jammin' Beats was a pleasure. We booked Jamie almost 18 months in advanced from our wedding date, and through that time we stayed in touch and he answered any questions we had.

Jamie was very professional, friendly, and fun at the wedding. He played all of our requests and didn't play songs on our 'do not play' list. He was on top of things (especially when I would loose track of time!) and was always there to help us out. Not once was he a cliche wedding DJ- very tasteful!

We are so happy we used Jamie and Jammin' Beats. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, affordable, and wonderful DJ. Thank you so much, Jamie, for helping our wedding be a success!

He kept coming to check with us to see if we needed anything. He was great, he danced with our family. He played everything we asked and avoided everything we asked. He is seriously the best!!!

On the day of the wedding, he provided music for the ceremony and reception, as well as the photobooth, and did such an amazing job. Very professional, fun and affordable.

Jammin Beats was amazing! We had Mike and another girl that I unfortunately did not get to catch her name. He kept the dance floor full all night and made sure to play music that all ages would enjoy! He went right along with my husbands and my requests and made sure to double check with us if someone asked him to do something out of the ordinary! He even got down on the floor and taught my husband how to do one of the group dances! They were very reasonable with pricing, and even went along with some of my "tweeks" to the packages with no problems. They were awesome and you NEED them at your wedding!

Mike kept the dance floor packed throughout the entire evening everyone had such a great time it flew by and no one could believe the party had come to and end.

We met Jamie at the Turning Stone Bridal Expo, and found the best price in town on a photobooth for our wedding. He hands down beat out the price of all of the other photobooths in the area, and provided an excellent service. Jamie was awesome to work with, he was extremely professional and made sure that the template for the photos was exactly what we expected. The photobooth was awesome, and we probably would have booked him for a DJ too but decided on a photobooth after signing a contract with Piazza (who was awesome too btw!). I will keep Jamie in mind for future events with the company I work with.

Jammin beats provided us with the music for our ceremony, the reception and a photobooth. This is definitely a great value. There service the day of was good, but we had specifically requested no songs like the electric slide or chicken dance and they played them anyways. The photobooth was fun and we received our CD that day, which was great. I recommend buying your own book for they day of, for people to paste their pictures in. I found a very pretty journal at Barnes and Noble and now it is nice for people to look at it.

The owner of the company was very professional and friendly. We asked for a dj with great personality in advance.We received a dj( do not know his name , he never introduced himself to us at the wedding) he couldn't pronounce my families last name (bride) , he didn't play music guests requested, he stayed behind the stand the entire night, sitting under a tiny light. He wouldn't play songs we recommended( example : didn't play the song we requested for the cake cutting )In addition , the dj played a lot of alternative pop/ rock , which is fun to listen to, but very difficult to dance to )He was somewhat standoffish and unapproachable , at times rude to bride and guests. The thing I was most taken back by is when I contacted the owner to explain our disappointment , the dj had lied to the owner of the company stating the reason he was rude was because people were dancing on his equipment and requesting crude songs. We were extremely disappointed in the service we received, on one of the most important days of your life you want to feel special and have your guests feel special and this wasn't the case. I do want to say again the owner was really nice, just make sure if you do use this company to ask for someone who will make sure your guests have fun and a person who wants to be there. I have heard good things about jammin beats but must say in our particular case were really let down.

We used Jammin Beats for the photo booth only. The attendant stole the extra props we provided for our guests, asked the bride for a tip directly, did not fix the machine when it broke, and lost several of our guests' photo cards. Finally, the disc that the attendant handed us at the end of the night did not contain our wedding's photos, instead it contained a small child's birthday party. I would never recommend this vendor to anyone.
