James from music of the times was the best decision of all the decisions that were made when it came to planning our own wedding. James was quick to respond whenever needed. His quality of service went above and beyond. He is truly more than just a DJ. Without him our wedding would not Have been half of what it was. James delivered when it came to the music choices and quality. He was in tune with the crowd and kept the vibe on the right track. He also went above and beyond with his MC duties. Making sure things were happening close to when they should and keeping an eye on vendors for us to make sure everything was in line for the event. James had our back with whatever decisions we made, even the last minute ones , making sure the bride and I stayed happy. Thanks James and music of the times.

James was helpful with suggesting songs for the vibe we were trying to go for. He did our ceremony and reception. We wanted everyone to dance and party the reception and he definitely made that happen. People kept complimenting me on the playlist when I all I did was tell James my favorite genre/ bands. This was the vendor I was most nervous about because I had been to wedding with bad DJs but he put all my fears to rest. He was great!!!!

Jim is THE BEST DJ in Richmond! We were pretty lost when it came to making the playlist for our wedding. We had a small handful of ideas. Jim was able to feed off of that and give us many options, suggestions and samples in order to fill in any holes. We received so many compliments from our guests about how great the music was. Jim was awesome when it came to coordinating with the planner to make sure everything ran on time, and kept the crowd engaged and dancing the entire evening. Jim is very experienced and was able to help make that part of our wedding stress-free and super fun, and we really appreciate that. I highly recommend for ANY event.

Many, many thanks to Jim at Music of the Times,
Kristine and Danny.

James Hock was an entertaining DJ who obviously knew what he was doing. This was not his 1st rodeo.

We told him that we didn't want to worry about anything, and he took that and ran with it. He essentially coordinated our wedding. He was on top of everything timing-wise. He has a great presence. He was there when he needed to be, and then sat back and let the party handle itself when it needed to.

James met with us multiple times to go over the day of and our music taste. There were ZERO surprises the day of our wedding. I would highly suggest getting the lighting package. It takes the event to another level for a low price.

Thanks James!

James at Music of the Times was AMAZING!! He was a great DJ, able to read the crowd and what would get people on the floor and stay dancing all night. He was also a great MC, able to get the crowd going and inserting humor in the perfect situations. He did the music for our ceremony and for our reception, worked with the staff at our venue and was great at getting everyone set up for the next "thing"(ie: cake, bouquet, garter etc...). He was so flexible, since our wedding was on a Tuesday and worked with us over email and phone since we planned our weddding from another state. He is awesome and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for an all around great person to work with!!!

Jim was the DJ for our wedding and he was, in a word, fantastic! We felt comfortable working with him from the first time we met him, and he was invaluable during both the lead-up to our wedding and throughout the actual wedding day. He provided music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception…no easy task considering they were all outdoors on the same plantation. We made a lot of very specific requests for all three of these stages, and Jim was able to follow through on all of them. We heard every song we requested when we requested it, and he also did a wonderful job of filling in the blanks and keeping the party active! As a result, it was an incredible day. Jim not only did a great job with the music and as an emcee, but he was incredibly considerate to both myself and my wife throughout the event. He was constantly making sure we had whatever we needed, be it a drink or a snack or anything else. Also, he worked seamlessly with our photographer and caterers to make sure everything happened when and where it was supposed to happen. Jim made sure we didn’t run into any issues. Do NOT miss the opportunity to work with Jim. You won’t regret it!

I had an amazing wedding! Jim from Music of the times did an incredible job. He did the music for my ceremony, reception, and even had music going in a separate cocktail room. Not only was the music on point, but he was also the master of ceremonies and did some amazing lighting effects. Great guy! He made my wedding look and feel like it was a million bucks.

We used Jim from Music of the Times for our wedding and loved him! Jim was so professional and great to work with from the very first meeting. He took care of our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception music, and played every single song we wanted to hear. We had very specific requests for the ceremony and cocktail hour music that we wanted, and Jim definitely delivered. His emceeing services were fantastic, and we were thrilled with how well he transitioned the wedding from ceremony into reception. We had an afternoon wedding and were worried that there wouldn't be much dancing, but Jim still got people on the dance floor and found the perfect blend of music to keep them there. His prices were also extremely reasonable, even with our wedding on a tight budget. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out! Thank you, Jim!

Jim was absolutely fabulous! We gave him some general info on song styles we like as well as a few "do not play" songs, and he was spot on with his choices. He even took the time to edit the father-daughter song to just play the parts we wanted. My husband and I both commented that we've never been to a wedding with that many people on the dance floor - everyone was loving the music. Jim was very good about checking in with us prior to the wedding to make sure everything he had was still what we wanted and he was great about checking in with us that night to see if we needed anything. Couldn't have asked for a better night! Would highly recommend!
