Jay Goodley Entertainment provided me with an amazing steel drum player named Kenny for our beach wedding ceremony! He was a huge hit with my guests and also with the beach onlookers! I really like that I had a huge song list to choose from! Now every time I hear steel drums, I smile because it reminds me of our wedding day! I worked with Fitz and he was awesome! I was planning a destination wedding from Ohio and he was always professional and always responded in a timely manner!

We used Jorge Rodriguez to DJ our wedding over the weekend. Let me tell you, we could not have done it without him. He was so organized and really on top of everything (way more than I was.) He made the show run so smoothly, and even when rain threatened our outdoor wedding, he knew exactly what to do. We can not thank him enough for making our wedding fantastic! As an added bonus he spoke Spanish, which was great for my Puerto Rican in-laws... And he really knew how to party!!

Jay Goodley Entertainment was on the preferred vendor list for my venue. On my first phone call I spoke with Fitz Otis.... can I just say that was the best thing that could have ever happened for me!!! Fitz was and is amazing!! He was quick to get back to me. Easy to talk to. Helpful. And Accommodating. He just had it all together. My father did a few things to surprise me and Fitz was professional and very helpful with him. Even playing the slideshow as my father spoke. He did a welcoming party for my out of town guest. Fitz did an amazing job knowing when to play what. When we did a newly wed game he had music to play in the background. He went above and beyond. On the actual wedding day he play all the right music. I could not have been happier. Pretty much all of my guest came up to me at some point in the 2 days to tell me how wonderful Fitz was and they wished he was up in NJ (which is were most of us are from since this was a destination wedding for us). Which made him even more amazing to me. I did not feel stressed at any point about him. I knew he had it under control. He was easy and fast to communicate with over the phone and emails. Personally my (now) husband, family, and myself could not have been happier to have Fitz as are DJ. I would not have traded him for anything!!!!!! So when picking your DJ PICK JAY GOODLEY AND ASK FOR FITZ!!!!!! He will be there for you!

Jay Goodley with Jay Goodley entertainment was awesome! He was so friendly and knowledgable with all music genres. He played the majority of my requests throughout the night. He also did a great job engaging the guests. He had great ideas for songs when it came to the garder toss and others. He exceeded all of our expectations. He was a pleasure to work with and kept the party alive. The dance floor was packed the entire night, and because it was such a good dance party, we paid him to stay longer. All of our guests were commenting on how good the DJ was!

I hired my classical guitarist for my ceremony and my DJ for my reception through Jay Goodley Entertainment. Jay acts as a liason between the musicians and you. Jay coordinated with my musians to make sure they were available on my date, gave me their e-mail addresses, and sent me a sheet to fill in with the details of what type of music I wanted, song for walking down the isle (processional/recessional), the details of my ceremony/reception, our first dance song, timing, and any other special music we wanted (or didn't want) at the wedding/reception. We could even request a specific attire (I.e., formal, tie, informal, etc) for the musician. I e-mailed my info sheet to each of the musician/DJ so there was no confusion on what music we wanted played and what we expected.. They both showed up at their designated time, had all of the equipment and played all of the songs that I requested. Great reliable service. Thanks Jay!

Jorge Rodriguez was amazing!!! We booked Jorge Rodriguez through Jay Goodley Entertainment. We met Jorge at a wedding show in the Sarasota and immediately liked his energy. We met with him a few days before the wedding and he was very organized and provided helpful insight regarding the order of first dance, speeches, cake cutting, father / daughter dance, etc. The day of the event – Jorge absolutely rocked the wedding! The dinner music was perfect. He really got the dance party started and kept everyone on their feet for the rest of the night.

I don't know how this DJ has 5 star ratings. That is impossible! He was horrible! I joined wedding wire today just to write a review. Maybe because I am from NY but this was THE worst DJ I have ever heard. He was great in the beginning and super responsive and professional until the day of. I even spoke with him the day before the wedding and I was happy with him.

The day of is a completely different story! We had our wedding outdoor and while I was taking pictures with the sunset in the background someone came up to me and said why isnt there any music. I look over and the DJ is taking pictures of the sunset! I did not pay him to take pictures of the sunset! He has absolutly no MC skills. He sat at his dj booth all night and didnt speak on the microphone at all. I wanted him to be more into it and get people motivated to dance.

The worst part was for our first dance. Usually after 2 minutes, the dj asks other couples to join in. He had our song go on for 6 minutes without inviting anyone to the dance floor. Do you know how boring and tedious that is for the guests? I had to literally stop my first dance with my new husband and ask other couples to join us on the dance floor because the DJ couldnt be bothered sitting in his DJ booth.

Please - if you want a fun wedding with lots of great music, please take my advice and do NOT use him. He came recommended to me and I am really and truly disappointed.

His fee was not bad but I would have paid more to have a good and fun dj. My maid of honor went up to the dj at least three times to tell him to start playing some dance music and I went up to him once (while I should be enjoying the wedding) to tell him to play dance music.

Another thing which ended up working out, I gave him a list of songs a few weeks prior to the wedding and then the night of, he came up to me while I am at the Sweetheart table to tell me he didnt have the song I wanted to dance with my mom. It was a really special song I chose for my mom so I had to chose a different one. I chose another nice song but still, he should have had it.

Just my main concern with this DJ was his lack of MC skills and how any special dances, he played the whole song without asking other to join in. Its boring for guests to watch slow dances all night. I was bored and it was my wedding!

So if you can, either specify with this DJ exactly what you want or in my opinion, choose someone else.

The Jay Goodley Entertainment company assigned us Jorge as the DJ for our wedding. He was very thorough and easy to talk with. He went out of his way to find the exact artist for every song we wanted. The time we spent preparing on the phone paid off during the event, he was smooth and professional!!

We booked Al a little late in the game for our destination wedding in Florida. With all we had going on, we were not able to provide him with many details as far as music we would like to hear, but he did a great job with the little information we did give him! He played a mix that got our diverse crowd up and moving the whole time. He was also happy and quick to take requests. Thanks so much!

We used Jay Goodley Entertainment for our Ceremony and reception. Jorge was our DJ. He was wonderful.
We met with him a week before. His attention to every little detail was amazing. He is very knowledgeable in more than just the music and it showed throughout the entire process. He knew every song we wanted, which was amazing, some were old latin songs from Cuba!! He made suggestions we had never thought of, and we are truly thankful we got him. He was witty, funny, and fun. He loves what he does and it shows. He is bilingual which was perfect for us! If we are ever in need of a DJ again he would be the only one we would consider. Many thanks Jorge for making our day fun and fabulous! :)
