My wife Sherry and I would highly recommend Jay and his staff! Jay was very professional, organized, friendly, and the life of the party! The event was flawless with his coordination and everyone was impressed with his energetic personality. Jay treated us like a friend, not a client. He took the time to get to know us which was something special! We have made a great friend from the experience and will use him in the future and would recommend him over and over again! Great Job Jay and we cannot thank you enough!!! Sherry and Chad Goodman

I first discovered "Jay Shepherd Weddings" in the summer of 2010 while attending a wedding of a friend. I was impressed by Jay's ability to offer a professional, yet fun environment from the beginning of the reception all the way through the final dance. Around a year later, my best friend and his fiance were preparing for their wedding and were in need of a DJ. I immediately thought of Jay and recommended him to them. After meeting with Jay, they too were quite impressed with him and end up booking him that very night for their wedding. Throughout the planning stages Jay was constantly in contact with the couple going over ever detail of the wedding multiple times to make sure their reception would be perfect. He gave them song lists to choose songs from as well as a detailed schedule of how everything would go that evening. On the night of the wedding, Jay did an excellent job of keeping the reception flowing smoothly and the party hopping all evening long. The dance floor was full all night and everyone had a great time. I highly recommend "Jay Shepherd Weddings" if you are looking for a DJ for any event. You won't be disappointed.

Everything was wonderful from the planning to the final event. Jay offers a friendly and welcoming personality mixed with a high level of professionalism that clearly comes from years of experience in the industry.
He helped us to create the perfect reception. We received so many compliments from all age groups regarding how smoothly everything seemed to operate, but also that it was such a fun party! The surprise gift of the specialty lights behind our bridal table was such an unexpected, but beautiful touch. We can’t thank Jay enough for making our reception perfect!
We have recommended him to other newlyweds already and will continue to do so throughout the years.

He had got upset with our wedding party several times throughout the night. The wedding party and us were there for the same reason, to celebrate this wonderful day! We weren't expecting much from them, but we were expecting Jay and his staff to perform to our expectations. Since we met three times before the wedding and planned out how we wanted our reception to be. All the notes that were taken didn't plan out! He announced the wrong people in the wedding party, didn't have music for the mother son dance, and did not want to play the songs that were being requested by my Father-in-law. Also his photo booth attendant was ONE and a HALF HOURS LATE, and told us that no one from the wedding wanted to sign the album after placing their pictures in the album, plus the album that should have been handed to us at the end of the evening was given to us a week after our honeymoon. Jay is a nice guy, but my wife and I were disappointed. I guess he was just having an off day. We never signed a certified contract with Jay.

Jay Shepherd Weddings responded with the following comments:

I'm extremely disappointed that Jim and Kathleen found my performance not up to par.

I will say this: I had a problem with the Mother-Son song file and worked fast and furiously to correct it and blended the Mother-Son dance into the flow of the evening in such a manner that if one did not have the original timeline paper, it would have gone unnoticed.

The wedding party arrived at the reception in a boozed state usually not reached until mid-reception, getting them together for the grand entrance or any other scheduled activity was akin to herding cats. For the record, the entrance names were in order, the participants were not.

Not only did I play the father-in-law's requested songs, Once I learned who his favorite artist was, I played multiple songs for him throughout the evening, including one last dance AFTER the evening ended so he could dance with his lovely wife.

It's true that the photo booth attendant was late. It did not affect the almost 300 photos taken by the photo booth during the evening. The album was indeed not delivered on time and the matter was dealt with in-house.

Jim is and will remain a friend of mine, but I fear his recollection of the evening is somewhat foggy.

You're very welcome, Dawn! The selection of songs that you listed in your online planner was a great foundation for a dance party! Your guests also had some very hip requests that I was able to mix in throughout the night. I'm glad to hear that everyon had a fun.

My best to you and Mike.

Always plays requested songs
Goes with the flow
Adjust to what you want even if not completely planned, for example: the dollar dance
I have been at 2 weddings when he was the DJ. I was in the wedding party for one and helped cater the other one. Both were very enjoyable with his nice selection of music

Jay is by far the best DJ in the area. He is extremely easy to work with and is very flexible. We met with Jay 2 or 3 times before the wedding and he was always kind, attentive, and helpful. During our reception, he greeted the guests, let them know of important things going on, and kept the dance floor full the whole night. He played the songs we wanted him to play, and didn't play the ones we didn't want him to play. His website is user-friendly and extremely helpful. You can even look up songs on his DJ playlist. Jay was a hit at our reception and he helped the night flow smoothly and kept things exciting. He would be my first and only choice for a DJ!

Maxximum Music made our day even more perfect! Jay did an amazing job, everyone at our reception was talking! The music was at the perfect level for all our guest, he made our reception a blast! He made it so easy on us, we didnt have to do a thing, Jay took care of everything on his own and you can count on him! I would request him to all my friends and family.

I found Jay on the internet and hired him for my husbands surprise 30th birthday party. I was so pleased with his professionalism and his willingness to work with me, that I ended up hiring him again for my mothers birthday party and then my wedding. He was thorough with details and made sure that everything was exactly what I wanted. My wedding guests still to this day tell me that my wedding was one of the most fun weddings that they have ever been too. I highly recommend Jay. You will not be disappointed!!!

Maxximum Music DJ Entertainment with Jay was an incredible service all the way around. We could not have asked for a more professional yet fun DJ for our wedding! He really made the night a real party. Not only did he play great music, both from our suggestions as well as our guest suggestions, but he added some of his own choices that were in tune with our favorites and really livened the night up. I do not believe there was a single person sitting in the reception by the end of the night. We needed a bigger dance floor! In addition to all of this, Jay really helped to keep the night organized and made sure that all of the memorable events happened and that we did not have to worry about missing out on anything. We would recommend Jay and Maxximum Music DJ Entertainment time and time again and definitely plan on having him join us at any future events that we hold!
