Justin Stern was an amazing DJ. He's low-key, doesn't try to dominate the mic with jokes or an act, he just does his job, and he does it damn well. We had a video screen playing a slideshow of all the photos guests had uploaded to our Wedding App, and he noticed that it didn't loop, so he had his assistant be on the look-out and restart the show every hour or so when we ran out of pictures. Day-of, we had to move the cake table, and without anyone asking him, he just installed an uplight behind the cake, and it looked great. He really understands weddings. It's clear from the beginning that he's a professional who has been doing this for a long time. His packages are extremely reasonable, and he is probably the nicest person I worked with during wedding planning. He is polite and thoughtful, and asks questions about the age range of the guest list, what "style" our guest list is (ragers? ravers? ballroom dancers?) to make suggestions about not just the music, but the entire flow of the day to make your wedding spectacular. We very strongly would recommend Justin to any couple that's looking to hire a DJ for the wedding.

Justin (DJ) was probably our most essential vendor in terms of making sure the reception was exactly what we wanted, which was a huge dance party, and he delivered in spades. Leading up to our reception Justin was thorough in communicating with us about what our preferences were for the music during the reception. He allowed us to submit countless example songs through his immensely helpful online portal. Justin provides a detailed planning sheet allowing you to customize all the music for the special moments during your reception. Justin’s skill really rests on his ability to mix music seamlessly and listen to his clients to create the experience they want. We were particularly adamant that we wanted upbeat music with minimal interruptions or directions from the DJ and Justin went above and beyond to deliver just that. We could not be happier with Justin’s services and recommend him highly for any of your Santa Barbara area parties.

Despite being hired as a “day of” coordinator, I spoke to Karen more than any of our other vendors in the months leading up to our wedding. She was organized with our vendors and helped get everyone set up on an efficient timeline for the day of. Karen accounted for details I never would have thought to plan out, which ensured that our wedding day was stress free. It was such a relief to have someone on hand on our wedding day who knew exactly what we envisioned and was on site to make sure it was executed when we couldn’t be. This included Karen taking all of our extra handcrafted décor up to our reception site and placing it in the designated areas when we couldn’t be there. Karen made sure I didn’t have to answer a single question on my wedding day and that is the greatest gift anyone can give a bride. Karen was an absolute joy to work with and we truly had the perfect wedding day because of her. Karen is the master of professionalism, efficiency, organization, and thoughtfulness in the wedding world.

Karen Dicks (Coordinator)
In one of California worst droughts in the history of the state the sky falls in a lightning and thunder show at the exact hour that our ceremony was to begin.
Karen was absolutely wonderful and really kept everything together when the weather didn't.  We would not have made it through the day with out her help and guidance!! The only regret is we never got one photo with her!
Thank you Karen for doing THE MOST amazing job ever, both before, during and after the wedding!!!  We love you and think you are just so exceptional.  You made our ideas and thoughts come to fruition the day of the wedding.  And we cannot thank you enough for all your time, patience, and perfect handling of the rain the day of the wedding.
We were looking for a day of coordinator but got so much more working with Karen. She is phenomenal in so many ways!

Justin (DJ)
Our one and only wish for our wedding day was that our guest have a great time. We really wanted the evening to be one big party and that is what Jas Productions provided. Justin’s mix of modern and classic dance tracks kept the party on the floor. The only time people stopped was to eat and drink, Justin kept the flow going and the party moving.
Even in the rain he maintained his composure and kept the music flowing even when the rain fell. If you are looking for a party and want someone who understands music, rhythm and flow then Jas Productions is who you’re looking for.

I'm so glad I chose JAS Productions – that good feeling I had following my first conversation with Justin really did bode well for how everything flawlessly came together for my wedding ceremony and reception. From the initial planning to the event set-up to the execution of the DJ/MC'ing, Justin's professionalism stands out most. I appreciated his accessibility (at all hours) and responsiveness (to me, my day-of coordinator, and vendors) plus the constructive, candid feedback he provided about the overall flow of the music and his perspective on the need for up-lighting and the appropriateness of certain songs I wanted him to play at key moments. He really demonstrated his knowledge of a wide range of music genres and experience doing various types of weddings (including an urban crowd). My guests enjoyed his set and had a great time. Justin was flexible and prepared to honor guest song requests that weren't on my suggested playlist. He also helped me create an incredible bride and groom introduction mix that was well-received.

Justin was awesome from the get-go. He took the time to explain everything to me on our initial phone call, and throughout the process was always accessible. We had a fabulous time at our wedding at Chase Palm Park and Justin did a great job of gauging our somewhat older crowd. My husband and I both commented on how all we had to do was give Justin a nod or signal and he knew exactly what to do. AND he does lighting! I was so over trying to decide what to do for lighting and Justin came to the rescue at the last minute. I definitely recommend Justin as a DJ and for lighting!

We booked Justin as our wedding DJ and we couldn’t have been happier with him. In the months before the wedding he was communicative to any questions we had. We used his website to set up our day of timeline (which we used as a master timeline for all of the vendors). His website planning tool was really nice because it let us make changes pretty much up to the day of the wedding without us having to worry about contacting Justin and worrying that something got lost in translation.

At the wedding Justin did an excellent job. The music during dinner and cocktail hour was perfect, and when it came to dancing he did a great job at reading the crowd and playing music that got people dancing. He was also extremely flexible on our timeline by reading into what was happening and not treating times as completely set in stone. Basically he made sure everything flowed perfectly and made us feel completely unpressured. It might not seem like much but it is hard to feel totally relaxed at the wedding, yet Justin let us do just that.
The highest praise I can give Justin is that he was a complete professional at his job. We had no doubt that he would deliver excellent DJ services, and we were not disappointed. Hire Justin and rest assured you will receive excellent service.

Justin from JAS Productions is awesome, we let him choose all of the music for our wedding and it was perfect, everyone was dancing all night and there was never an empty dance floor. He also provided ceremony and cocktail hour sound which sounded great and worked with us and our guitarist who provided the ceremony music. I would recommend him for any event you are having, he is super easy to get into contact with and his flat rate makes it easy to understand what you are getting. I loved working with Justin and would work with him again if I need a dj.

What can I say about Justin and JAS Productions? I could say he was wonderful. I could say he's the best DJ around. Those things are true but it feels like we're not doing him justice!

Prior to my wedding, Justin was always available via phone and email for big questions and small ones, really easing our minds in the stressful wedding planning time. We performed a medley at the wedding and Justin quickly and without hesitation helped us cut together a backing track for it. It was clear from the get-go that Justin wanted to make sure that our wedding was perfect and that he'd do anything to make sure our vision was realized.

On our actual wedding day, Justin was early and was ready to go. His sound equipment was top-notch and Justin even read a speech for our grand entrance that was just incredible (he had even practiced it beforehand to time it with musical cues!). Countless guests came up to us complimenting him because he's an actual DJ who knows music, beat matching, reading crowds, you name it.

Summing up: Justin was so easy to work with, is extremely talented and should be your choice for your next event!

Thank you Justin!!!!

I can't say enough about JAS productions. Justin was fantastic to work with. So professional, and covered every detail, no matter how small or large. He truly is a fantastic DJ, and really knows how to read a crowd. We gave him just a general guideline of music that we enjoy, and like to listen to, and he not only played the songs we recommended, but also played other songs that he knew would fit the crowd all through the night. He arrived early, and started setting up, and was right on point the entire time. We had a family friend who was doing our day of coordination, and in addition Justin provided feedback on our wedding timeline and gave us pointers of how we could tweak our timeline to make it all work out the best. And he was spot on! We are in San Diego, and he took the time to meet with us before the wedding to talk about all of our needs and get to know us as a couple. I couldn't recommend Justin and his team enough. If you want a no hassle, easy to work with individual with a high attention to detail - Justin is your guy. If we didn't already have a wedding coordinator, we would have used him for that as well. In addition, his prices were perfect - we had other company's who tried to lump us in to a specific package, of a certain amount of hours. Instead, Justin catered our pricing package to our needs, and ending up being much less than other competitors we had spoken to. Thanks Justin for making our event so memorable, and throwing such a great party!!

We were married last September at the Granada Theatre in Santa Barbara and choosing JAS Productions as our DJ and Day-of Coordinator was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Justin and Karen were a dynamic duo and their invaluable recommendations and attention to detail were essential in our planning, especially from our home across the country in New York City.

From our first meeting, Justin and Karen were always helpful and available to answer questions even working with our 3-hour time difference to have FaceTime meetings to work through the many details.

As our DJ and MC, Justin made the process of choosing songs easy and streamlined through his website. On our wedding day, he kept the reception flowing with great song mixes and entertained our 100+ guests. When there was a miscommunication with our lighting, he came through and provided the perfect uplight scheme just days before the wedding.

As our coordinator, Karen brought so much insight and asked all of the important questions for us to consider in building our timeline. Her professionalism and organization kept the day on track and diffused all issues. When a live-music vendor didn't deliver their promised services and started to make a scene, she absolutely handled the situation and quickly came up with an alternative so seamlessly that we had no idea.

We were so thrilled with JAS Productions and highly recommend them for anyone looking for a DJ and Coordinator who truly care and deliver everything they promise.
