Jim was a class act! My previous DJ cancelled 2 weeks before our wedding. I found Jim online and he immediately got back to me. He had an endless amount of songs to choose from and if there wasn't one he had he got it for us. He did a great job walking us through our wedding schedule and made sure everyone was where they needed to be from first dances, speeches, cake cutting...etc. Jim did an excellent job and I would recommend anyone looking for a DJ to give him a call.

Thanks again

The professionalism of Mr. Casey far exceeded any of our expectations and we could not express how grateful we are to him. He went above and beyond the requirements of a DJ and actually saved our wedding from a major disaster! His attention to detail was quite a great surprise, and the website was absolutely wonderful and easy to navigate. I would recommend Mr. Casey for any and all of your DJ needs. So grateful and pleased.

LOVE the client portal! Jim makes it so easy to plan your music for your event. The worksheets he provides are easy to follow and easy to fill out. He didn't have two of the songs I wanted for my ceremony but that was taken care of when I emailed them to him. Easy peasy!! Super easy to work with!!! Jim is a real friendly guy and is very good at his job. If I ever plan a big event again he is my first choice for a DJ.

Jim did a wonderful job at our wedding. Being this was a second wedding for both my bride and I, we wanted to dispense with most of the traditions (throwing the bouquet, the garter, the dollar dance, etc.) and focus on ensuring our guests had an awesome time. Jim played the music that made this happen. Jim listened to us thoroughly during our consultation and did exactly what we requested for the wedding. He also threw in lots of suggestions, some which we did and some we passed. I would highly recommend him to any one who needs DJ services in the future and would definitely use and recommend him to our friends.

Jim was excellent to work with. He is extremely professional and really listens to his customers. He helped make our reception special and FUN! We had a variety of guests from small children to elderly family members to crazy younger friends to catholic nuns and Jim managed to keep everyone happy and dancing. He knows how to read and please a crowd. He seamlessly shortened some of the lame songs my husband and I picked as must plays when they caused a mass dance floor exodus but he played all of the songs we asked for and stayed away from the types of music we can't stand. I can't say enough about him- he is well worth the cost! He even worked with my husband secretly to plan a surprise for our first dance and slipped him the score of the ball game from time to time- my husband loved him! Book Jim now.

Having the right DJ is very important in making your reception fun for all. I was plainng a wedding 4 hours away from home so finding the right dj was going to be hard seeing that I didn't know any from that area. We ended up hiring Jim Casey and although he was an OK dj, he wasn't what I thought I was hiring. We paid 1400.00 for him to entertain as well as dj. He did no entertaining. He simply played the music that I picked out and told him to play. He does have nice small set up for himself with wireless speakers which was a plus in a small reception facilities but what I was most surprised about was the fact that someone that charged 1400.00 for 5 hours didn't own a wireless microphone for the Best Man and Matron of Honor to speak. He gave them a wireless headset....the photos look great. He was just an ok dj, I could have paid a lot less and gotten the same service from someone else.

Jim Casey Entertainment LLC responded with the following comments:

Thank you for the honest review about June 28, 2008.

Julie and Stuart were wonderful to work with. It is unfortunate that I did not hear of these issues until months after the wedding, but we did discusss this by phone the on January 29, 2009 so I could get a better understanding from their perspective.

"He did no Entertaining" - This was a misunderstanding between the bride & groom and me. My interpretation of our consultations was that she wanted the party to happen and to have the DJ be laid back. Her expectation (I found out with this review) was one that would constantly interact and pump up the crowd.

I got this one wrong and take full responsibility.

"Didn't own a wireless microphone" - As is required in my 7-Point Peace of Mind Money Back Guaranmtee, I always carry two wireless microphones, one handheld and one headset. Unfortunately, the handheld gave me issues that I could not fix on-site in Bethel. As a result, the toasts had to be done on my wireless headset, not a perfect situation, but I improvised on the fly.

As a result, I have sent the couple a partial refund and a certificate for a FREE 4 hour event in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts - up to $1400 in value.

It is unfortunate that these mistakes occured, but they will be remedied and not repeated.

Policy changes:

1. Style of DJ/MC will be a section on my forms and at pre-wedding consultations I will double check to make sure what style is required.

2. 4 Wireless Microphones on-site as part of my 7-Point Peace of Mind Money Back Guarantee - 2 Handheld, 2 Headset (plus 2 Lavalier if I am providing music and sound at a ceremony)

Thank you again for the review.

I was living in a different state while planning my Maine wedding, and had to find vendors over the phone, for the most part. I do not recommend this, as it is a nightmare, and I ended up talking to some VERY unprofessional "wedding professionals". This was as far from the case as possible when I was working with Jim. From the moment I sent him my "check the availability of my date" request, he was professional and responsive. He spent a lot of time telling me about his services, and his philosophy when it comes to his business. I felt respected, and appreciated, and immediately booked him. We did not have a lot of flexibility when it came to planning time, and he was able to meet with us on our schedule and really listed to our preferences. From P Funk to Sinatra, Jim really had it all. We danced ALL NIGHT! Even the grandparents. He made the evening seamless, and was a great MC. Book Jim, you WILL NOT regret it!
