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 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!

He helped with picking out songs from the mother son dance to party hits, top 40 and more. He also has a really helpful website where you can select songs for your wedding playlist so easily. We met several times before the wedding and his flexibility is amazing. Jay also has great prices, unlike most other DJs. Don't hesitate to choose Jay, book him right now! Love him!

Jay initiated contact with us in order to make sure he knew exactly what we were looking for. The day of our wedding he was awesome! He understood the exact vibe we wanted to set at our wedding and played the songs that we loved! This included mixing hit songs with some international music as well. Jay also personalized a great beat for our wedding party to walk out to. I highly recommend Jay without any reservations. He was one of the main reasons our wedding was such a success!

Jay Foss did an amazing job as our wedding DJ! He was so organized and guided us through the process of creating our time line. He made great suggestions- many of which we used. Jay met with my wife and I several times before our wedding to make sure we were on the same page.

Jay had such a great presence about him- he was so professional and had great energy. He was really flexible on the day of the wedding. I think we had the best wedding reception EVER. He really got a feel for us and played a great blend of our music taste. His selection of music flowed so well - there were so many times when the dance floor was packed. We asked Jay a month after the wedding if he could send us CD's of our music selection from our wedding day, and a week later we had them. What a special gift to have. Thanks Jay we couldn't be happier! A&J

DJay Foss is the perfect combination of flexible and professional. He is always willing to give his input, but he understands that the Bride & the Groom have their own specific flavors of their own. For our wedding, we ended up taking his advice on almost everything and it was always the right decision. At our wedding we had a bunch of last minute changes and he accommodated them with ease while reassuring us that it was no big deal. Nobody had a clue that things had changed. He was so helpful, respectful, flexible, and fun...and I heard that after my husband and I left the wedding he even got out on the dance floor and showed off some of his own moves!! :) I would absolutely recommend him for ANY wedding. Thanks Jay for a great night!

DJAY was amazing! He was professional, fun, and flexible. We met two times before the wedding, although I'm 100% sure he would have met more or less if we had wanted to. Meeting before the wedding made us feel relaxed and confident in our music and DJ choice. If you are tech savvy, he has a great online system where you can enter in everything you want/need including song choices, times the songs go on, and what traditional dances you'd like or don't like. If you are not tech-savvy, he will ask you these questions at your meetings with him prior to your wedding. I wasn't feeling too good right before the reception started and he was flexible in changing the time of the first dance, father-daughter dance, and we ended up not doing our bridal party introductions. Our dance floor was 'packed' the entire night. He caters to whatever you want whether it is a young crowd, old crowd, or both. We had a typical guest scene, from my nephew (10 months) to grandparents in their 70s, many guests in their twenties (like us), and a bunch of our parents friends. Our guests had such a great time. We got comments from them after about how great it was. The ones that loved to dance were out there the whole time and the guests that don't like dancing got up for a few songs...and that's how you know you got a good DJ. I would definetly recommend him to any future bride!

I wasn't feeling too good right before the reception started and he was flexible in changing the time of the first dance, father-daughter dance, and we ended up not doing our bridal party introductions. Our dance floor was 'packed' the entire night. He caters to whatever you want whether it is a young crowd, old crowd, or both. We had a typical guest scene, from my nephew (10 months) to grandparents in their 70s, many guests in their twenties (like us), and a bunch of our parents friends. Our guests had such a great time. We got comments from them after about how great it was. The ones that loved to dance were out there the whole time and the guests that don't like dancing got up for a few songs...and that's how you know you got a good DJ. I would definetly recommend him to any future bride! Read less

My husband and I had Jay DJ for our wedding in 2011, and I am SO GLAD we hired him! From the very beginning, he was easily accessible via email and phone, and met with us as frequently as we wanted to discuss our music list and plans. Most importantly he had everyone on the dance floor having a great time! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ! Thanks again, Jay!!! - Courtney Neill

Jay was easy and enjoyable to work with.  His schedule was flexible during the planning phase of our wedding.  He listened to what style we enjoyed and what songs we absolutely wanted and didn't want played.  He understands that the wedding is the event and he is not the main attraction.  Working with him may have been the smoothest part of our wedding.  I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ.

Jay was very easy to deal with. He was strategic in planning our event and making sure we met to go over the details. We had planned this wedding in a 2 week period which did not leave room for any error. He showed up and delivered the services we needed and then some perfectly!! It was a real treat to work with Jay and he is very honest and dependable. He was accommodating to peoples requests on the dance floor as they came in. I would not hesitate recommending him to anyone for any type of event but particularly a wedding!! Hope this helps in your decision making.

Jay Foss stepped in as our DJ with 5 days notice, when our previously contracted DJ did not fulfill his contract. Jay met with my husband and I, and we were thrilled with the decision to hire him! Jay was excellent at our reception, and had all of our family and friends dancing the entire time. We've since recommended him to other family members planning a wedding, and enjoyed seeing him DJ their wedding as well! We would HIGHLY recommend Jay to anyone looking for a highly reliable, professional and FUN DJ who knows how to keep a crowd dancing :)

Jay was the DJ on our wedding day in August 2009. Had we not moved away from the east coast, we would continue to have Jay DJ for future events. We had the privilege to reunite with Jay this past summer at a friend’s wedding where his diversity of music, fun and warm energy entertained the crowd just like on our wedding day.

Jay has a varied and dynamic knowledge of musical genres that will fit your event perfectly. Meeting with Jay in the pre-wedding planning put me instantly at ease as he was extremely organized, flexible, and friendly.

My husband and I were particularly impressed by Jay’s excellent attunement to the crowd and his ability to keep our guests aware of the true meaning of our wedding celebration. The “dancer” inside of each guest was brought out by Jay’s creativity and seamless transitions throughout the night. We had the BEST dance party. I cannot recommend Jay Foss highly enough!

Choosing a DJ is one of the most stressful parts of wedding planning. They can literally make or break the party. We've all been there. They're playing Macerena, telling cheesy jokes, demanding (or pleading) that people get up and dance. And you never know what you're going to get. It's risky business for sure.

Well, I'm happy to say that Jay Foss committed none of the above infractions at our wedding, and was, in fact, absolutely flawless as a DJ. We could not have asked for more!

A lot of DJs have a preset list of songs that they're going to play come hell or high water. And they're baffled when people don't all dance to the same tunes. Jay has the ability to feel out the crowd, get a sense of what kinds of music gets the people moving, and then adapt his playlist to the audience.

As something of a music snob, I submitted a lengthy list that I wanted to be played at the wedding. Jay sat with me for over an hour one night and helped separate 'dinner songs' and 'dancing songs,' and let me know if there were specific tracks that he felt might break the flow of the night.

I got a TON of compliments on the music. Yes, this a testament to my stellar taste, but just as important is the way Jay perfectly arranged the songs I'd requested and peppered in great tracks of his own choosing to make sure the party continued to bump long into the night.

In fact, I took Jay aside and asked if he could extend the party an extra half an hour past our scheduled departure just because everyone was having so much fun that it felt like the party wasn't ready to end. Of course, Jay accommodated this request and was ready with extra jams to keep us grooving.

All in all, Jay was phenomenal. He's not only a great DJ, but a great MC, keeping the festivities moving along seamlessly.

Jay was so great that when my sister got married a couple years later, she knew she needed him to DJ. Jay made the trip all the way to New Jersey for the gig.

This might have been one of Jay's earliest wedding gigs. Prior to this, I believe that he had DJed more dances. I was satisfied with the music that Jay chose, but some of my older guests were less satisfied. Knowing that Jay has had quite a bit more experience since then, I am sure that the quality of his service has only improved.

I found Jay very easy to work with and very receptive to feedback. His rates were incredibly competitive at the time. I would have no trouble recommending him.
