DJ

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Dance, Folk, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Pop, R&B, Rock, Soul, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
For MCing, I don't view my role as being the center of attention/hokey comedian on your wedding day (there are some great comedians I can recommend if you want that). I let the music create the atmosphere, so guests can talk with each other. When it's time to party and dance the night away, the music will do just that! I make announcements to let guests know what's going on without being intrusive. Musically, I'm all about transitions - sometimes this calls for beatmatching, sometimes this calls for completely changing the pace.
What is your usual attire?
Full suit
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No way (unless it's a personal recording that is not sold in stores).
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Definitely - I recommend meeting ahead to make sure that we are a good fit for each other (I'm not offended if we just don't mesh well and you want to look elsewhere, in fact I can refer you to a few other DJ's who might be a better match).
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
Because I customize each event, I have a lot of international clients.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Of course!
Do you bring your own equipment?
I do indeed.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have a network of DJ's as well as an assistant who acts as a back-up.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No - just one event to focus on per day.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
No - this is already included in my quotes for your wedding.

Jay Foss went above and beyond with the Hwang wedding, and it is evident that this is how he operates with every wedding/event that he does! Despite the miles between us (him in MA and my husband and I in PA), he met with us several times via FaceTime and really poured a lot of time, effort, and more importantly, HEART, into the details of our wedding. He even rocked a bow tie to fit into the theme of our day. Scott and I absolutely loved the customized first dance...and there wasn't a dry around us as it played. That first dance moment is now one of my favorite moments in my life, and we have Jay to thank for being so intentional with creating that tender moment for us. Many of our guests are still talking about how great of a job Jay did. We are forever grateful for his attention to detail, his willingness to travel, and for throwing his heart into our wedding. If you need a DJ, Jay Foss is your guy. Thank you for everything, Jay!

Jay Foss was unbelievable to work with! By far, one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. Jay has a very keen attention to detail and will work with you as much as needed to make sure your wedding is reflective of your personal taste and style. We met with Jay several times prior to our wedding and the final result was fun, flawless and an amazing party! He played all our favorite songs at the right times and read the crowd perfectly keeping them dancing all night long! In addition to the reception, Jay also worked with me to help prepare and edit a digital piano recording so that I had personalized ceremony music as a gift for my husband. He is very passionate about his craft and was an absolute pleasure to work with. There are a lot of important decisions in wedding planning and choosing the right DJ is essential so that guests have a good time. Choosing Jay Foss was the one choice we never worried about and we were completely confident from the moment we met him that he was the perfect choice for our day. Thank you Jay for everything you did to make our day so special! We would hire Jay Foss again in a heartbeat!!

Jay was professional, friendly, and just so easy to work with. Even with us being out of state he kept the communication up and the website made things really helpful. He had recommendations when I needed them and custom songs when I asked. I know my husband and I like a lot of stuff off the beaten path so that was very very important. His rate is totally reasonable as well.

Jay was phenomenal to work with during the planning stage before our wedding and during the day of. He balances professionalism as well as personal style and creativity well. He was very helpful in creating a reception timeline and then carried it out effortlessly which allowed us to simply enjoy the day and not to even worry about timing during the day. He kept the music within our tastes, at a comfortable volume, and was very professional throughout it all. I would confidently recommend Jay as a DJ for any event, it was a pleasure to work with him!

Jay was absolutely fantastic! Jay expressed an awareness of issues that might arise during a wedding, such as speaker placement, so as to be sensitive to older people, issues that might come up regarding speeches, etc. He asked a lot of questions about issues I would never have anticipated. I was impressed immediately.
Jay was also very knowledgeable of different music styles. He was able to assist us not just with music selection, but also with music that we might not want played. He provided a tool that was very helpful in selecting music.
After the wedding, my husband and I received rave reviews of the DJ from friends who had attended the wedding. Comments included the fact that he seemed to sense the mood of the room and to know when to change the tempo of the music. Another person absolutely loved the playlist and was wondering if they could get a copy. The person said they loved all of the music. While we made some of the music selections, Jay had asked us about our musical tastes and made most of the music selections based on that. He clearly listened to us and gained a good understanding of what we liked.

Jay Foss is simply a professional, and a really nice guy. Easy to get along with, easy to work with. Combine this with the fact that his packages are very reasonably priced and you really can't go wrong.

He offered to drive over to meet us at a Starbucks and bought us a round of coffees as we talked to decide if he'd be a good fit for our winter wedding. He didn't try to upsell us on any of the more expensive lighting packages that he also offers -- he just let us know that it was an option that he could tell us more about if we were interested. That was an excellent sign.

The day of the wedding, he dressed sharp, had everything set up on time, and the big day went off without a hitch. He worked in guests' song requests, but checked with me on a couple because it conflicted with the 'Do Not Play' list. It was easy to set up our 'Must Play' tracks through his website, and he managed to hunt down a hard-to-find instrumental song to play for when my wife walked down the aisle.

At the end of the night, everyone was still ripping up the dance floor.

Jay was so much more than a great DJ. He is a master at his craft, but even more importantly, he was intent on doing all that he could to create the night that we as a couple were hoping to achieve. His professionalism always shone through. He listened to all of our crazy ideas and always kept our interests at the core, while giving us great advice from past experience. He was kind and patient and an excellent master of ceremonies the night of the wedding. I only wish there were more stars to give him!

Hiring Jay Foss to DJ our wedding was one of the best decisions we made throughout the entire process! He was so welcoming and very easy to share ideas with. He listened to our vision and really got to know us as a couple. This was great because, as he got to know us, he made suggestions as to how to make the whole experience more "us" simply through music.

Jay was SO great to work with. He made sure we were prepared each step of the way, and made planning fun! There is a great site that is available with his services that gives you the option to play around with various playlists. Not only did Jay ensure that we were 100% happy with his work, he also gave us great pointers wedding planning in general. I would highly suggest Jay Foss to anyone looking for an exceptional DJ. Our guests were dancing the entire time and raved about what a great time they had for months!

We loved having Jay DJ our wedding! He is fun, friendly, and professional. One of the things we enjoyed most about Jay was that he listened very carefully to what it was that we wanted our reception to be like (without any judgement at our music choice even though we probably deserved some judgement at times:). Throughout the whole process he was a calming presence and very flexible when we needed/wanted to make changes. The day of, he was prompt and thought to take care of things that we hadn't even thought of such as a sound system for our ceremony!
