Jeff has been a professional DJ and musician for over 20 years. A graduate of Hartt College of Music, with a degree in music education, he has also been active in the Connecticut music scene as a member of the band Tirebiter. Jeff has been the band's emcee when performing countless events.

From a casual backyard party or a romantic sea side wedding, to high profile events that include sharing the stage with national recording artists, Governor Rell's Inaugural Ball and both her children's weddings, Jeff draws from a deep well of experience.

He has developed a style that is eloquent confident and never "over the top".

Jeff prides himself in tailoring every event to suit your personal style while always thinking of your guests. He'll handle the events of your reception in a professional, fun and sophisticated manor.

The "plus" in DJ plus, is what makes Jeff unique. He offers the distinction and elegance of adding live music to your event with his saxophone. Live music can set your event apart by adding that special touch when tastefully mixed in during a ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner. He "bridges the gap" between the older generation who grew up with live music and the younger generation who are accustomed to dancing to a DJ. The end result is the absolute best of both worlds and a party to remember! Read less

So let me just tell you that working with Jeff Ladd as our DJ/musician was a wonderful and memorable experience. I walked into cocktail hour and had MULTIPLE guests come up to me and tell me how much they LOVED his talent while playing the sax! They thought it was unique and an elegant touch that he played the sax during pre-ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. My guests loved that touch (him playing the sax) and commented how it made the atmosphere feel relaxed, classy, and elegant. We loved how he would go from playing music to playing his sax and getting on the dance floor with our guests!

Jeff listened to us when we requested certain music and gave us great recommendations on music choices and how to sequence our wedding events. He is very professional and was WONDERFUL to work with. I recommend Jeff because he is not just a DJ, but also a musician which added another element to our wedding!

Hiring Jeff Ladd was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. He was easy to work with and thorough in making sure all of our music was both exactly what we wanted and a good fit for the wedding. For the reception, we put the musical selections entirely in his hands, and we were continually fielding compliments from our guests about how good Jeff was both as a DJ and as a saxophonist. Everyone had a blast! Our wedding would not have been the same-- would not have been as perfect-- without Jeff at the musical helm. I highly recommend him to any couple looking for a DJ with a bit of extra flare to make their wedding day truly memorable.

Where to begin?! Jeff was our DJ/amazing saxophonist for our May 21st wedding in Saratoga Springs, NY. When looking for a DJ, we really wanted to find someone who could DJ as well as play live music so we really hit the jackpot when we found Jeff. We spoke to quite a few other DJ/musicians, but in the end, we ended up going with Jeff due to his warm personality, amazing talent, and glowing reviews. Although Jeff hadn’t worked in upstate NY previously, we took a gamble and couldn’t be happier.

Leading up to the wedding, Jeff was easily accessible and easy to work with. He provided recommendations for songs when needed and was also very open to our must play/do not play suggestions. But the day of the wedding is where Jeff really shined. Our guests, made up of 75% guests aged 25-35, could not stop raving about Jeff – playing everything from classic Stevie Wonder to modern house music in perfect balance. Guests thought it was so unique to have someone who could DJ and play saxophone from the cocktail hour up through the last song. The highlight of the night was at the end of the night encore when Jeff got in the middle of a large circle of 75 guests on the dance floor and played ‘Africa’ on the sax – everyone was clapping and dancing around Jeff, clearly demonstrating the amazing job Jeff did to keep guests on the dance floor from beginning to end.

We cannot say enough amazing things about Jeff and would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who is looking for an ‘all around’ DJ. For us it was hard to find a DJ who ranged the full spectrum of music, from Frank Sinatra to Calvin Harris, but Jeff was able to pull off every type of music and then some. The dance floor was full all night from pre-dinner to the very last minute of our reception. Book Jeff Ladd for your reception immediately – you will be glad you did!!!

Jeff Ladd was referred to me by my good friend and Justice of the Peace, as one of only two DJs she would recommend. Hiring Jeff Ladd to DJ and MC our wedding was one of the best decisions we made.

Jeff was so helpful in planning the flow of the evening with all his creative ideas from his years of experience. He was also open to any specials requests we had to add to the day. Jeff is very good at reading his customers and the crowd and he responded by adding many unexpected touches.

The day went off without a hitch. Jeff was so professional. He took the worry of the details our of our hands so we were free to relax and enjoy our wedding day. Jeff's saxophone playing added such a touch of class to the day that neither our guests nor my new husband or I have ever experienced. Everyone raved about him throughout the evening.

Jeff Ladd is so much for than a DJ. He's a very talented musician and party organizer. Hiring Jeff Ladd for your special event will be money well spent.

Jeff was referred to my husband and I by my late mother-in-law. I remember the first time the three us of went to meet Jeff and discuss our music plans for our wedding. From the first meeting we knew Jeff was the musician we wanted on our special day. After hearing about the loss of my husband's mom three months before our wedding, Jeff reached out to us to send his deepest condolescences and set up a meeting to discuss ideas of how to remember her on our wedding day. Jeff offered us some great suggestions and we cannot thank him enough. Jeff did a wonderful job of MCing our wedding and adding that special touch to the reception. The entire night went so smoothly and everyone raved about Jeff's saxophone playing during cocktail hour and dinner as well as his ability to get everyone up dancing the whole night! Jeff has an incredible gift of being able to read the crowd and play music that appeals to everyone. My husband and I cannot thank Jeff enough for making our wedding day so personal and so special and for taking the time to get to know us as a couple. My husband and I would highly recommend Jeff! You will not be disappointed!

Everyone LOVED Jeff!! I am the mother of the bride and did all of the wedding planning, so first, I have to say he was probably the easiest of all of my vendors with whom to work. He returned every call almost immediately, was very accommodating to my daughter's schedule when planning face to face meetings. He offered excellent insight and advice and answered every question thoroughly. It gave me such incredible peace of mind knowing how experienced and professional he is.
At the reception, we could not have been happier with Jeff. Countless guests commented on his amazing horn playing. Many said it was so good, they thought it was recorded music at first, then saw he was there performing live and were blown away!!! Such a unique, and classy addition to the reception.
He emceed the event very well. He was engaging and entertaining but not over the top, or obtrusive!! His choice of music was excellent. I had guests from age 12 to age 91 and he had something for everyone. Not one complaint from anyone, but compliments from everyone!! The dance floor was consistently full!
We had originally booked him for his standard five hours with the option to extend if the party was still rocking. He checked with me ten minutes before he was to finish and after checking with the bride and groom (on the dance floor with their friends) we decided to keep it going for an additional half hour.
He really is an amazing musician, dj, and person. When the reception was over and we were packing things up and carrying everything to the car, he even offered to help with that!
