Jason Spencer Weddings and Entertainment opened its doors for one sole reason – to offer discerning couples an alternative to the Average Wedding DJ. An Average Wedding DJ will most likely show up on time, play most of the songs you’ve requested, and maybe even make some announcements for you – but will that be enough?

Serving as your Master of Ceremonies, DJ and Entertainment Director, Jason Spencer will work directly with you during a thorough planning process to develop fun and creative ways to showcase you and your guests for this once-in-a-lifetime event. Weddings offer no second takes, which is why the in-person planning starts months in advance so that your agenda will flow smoothly and all of your guests will have an experience that leaves them saying they just attended the best wedding reception… EVER!

Best of all, Jason has been entertaining brides and grooms all over the San Francisco Bay Area – from Silicon Valley to Carmel-by-the-Sea, The Golden Gate to sunny Santa Cruz, Livermore Tri-Valley Wine Country and everything in between – and he’s been doing it since 1995.

Offering a truly all-inclusive, *unlimited* performance time package, it is no surprise to hear Jason constantly receives rave reviews like this from prospects that DON'T EVEN RESERVE HIM:

Jason is professional, courteous, thoughtful and friendly - everything a wedding DJ should be. What I love most about him is that not once did he pressure me to book and he took the time to listen to my wedding wish list. He also did not make any assumptions about the big day, like he NEVER said "Well you'll want to have your cake cutting music blah blah blah," We're having pies and cupcakes - not cake. I appreciate that he listened to me first and made suggestions later.

He really should be called a DJ/mini-wedding music planner because Jason is SO organized. When discussing the flow of events, he pulled out this amazing fill-in the blank music time line and showed me a check-off list of songs. If you book with him, he gives a book and other goodies to help you plan out what you want for music.

He seems very trustworthy, not shady at all and he strikes me as being fairly laid back yet professional and able to get down to business on the dance floor.

Jason Spencer Weddings and Entertainment can provide music and PA support for your ceremony, custom/short edits of songs, “Love Story” and personalized wedding party introductions, and peace of mind. Be sure to inquire about the Wedding Ceremony Rehearsal Direction service too! Read less

INFO FOR DJ

Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Not really. However, I do ask that you limit your "must play" list to allow for an element of creative freedom and flow control on the dancefloor by reading the momentum of your guests.
What is your usual attire?
Unless otherwise requested, I will typically be in a dark gray or black suit - completely professional.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No. I buy all of the music I play, even when a client has their own music. The only difference would be if you have a CD or a song that is of a special version you want played that is unavailable through traditional legal methods.
How many other DJs do you work with?
When reserving Spencer Weddings and Entertainment, you will always get Jason Spencer as your Entertainment Director, DJ and MC. I am the only entertainer and I only cover as many events as I can personally service...which is usually about 30-35 weddings a year.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely! I encourage couples, both bride and groom, to meet with me during a no-obligation consultation prior to reserving my services. No surprises, no guesswork -- Let's get to know one another. :-)
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
While I do not "specialize" in any specific ethnicity, I have provided ceremony and reception entertainment for a variety over the years including: Jewish, Turkish, Persian, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese -- and the traditions that go along with them.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely. Best of all, I honor such a list. Should one of your guests suggest a song that has been blacklisted, I encourage them to make an alternate request.
Do you bring your own equipment?
For local events, all equipment is 100% owned and provided through Spencer Weddings and Entertainment. Destination weddings may require the use of rental equipment (destinations in Monterey/Carmel, Napa, San Francisco, and Tahoe are considered local).
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Any special equipment that a client may want can be added on for a reasonable fee. I typically bring top quality sound support and my talent. I have not utilized lasers, bubble machines, disco balls, or lighting more than maybe 10 times in 14 years...at the request of my wedding clients. I can, however, refer you to professional lighting companies that can transform even the most boring banquet hall in to a magical wonderland.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
For a reception I require at least 1 hour, and if I am also providing ceremony services, I request at least 90 minutes. Often times I will request that the venue allow my arrival for setup at least 2 hours before the scheduled start time. My equipment is self-contained and does not require a table.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
I request a minimum of 6 feet of space between the back wall and the dance floor for my equipment...and about 9 feet of width.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
I wouldn't even think about it. Your event is designed to be professional, and shameless promotion is not part of that equation.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
I serve as your Master of Ceremonies which means I help my clients create a smooth-flowing agenda. Throughout your celebration, I will work with the other vendors to make sure they are ready for the next event on our agenda before it occurs, I will keep the guests informed throughout the celebration in manner that keeps them appropriately entertained and engaged, and finally...I will direct the pacing and the flow of the celebration in a manner that give the impression that every event is just naturally flowing into the next one on the agenda.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
In the rare event Jason become unable to perform due to unforeseen circumstances, such as serious illness, injury or death, Spencer Weddings and Entertainment will contact the you immediately, arrange for an agreed upon professional replacement, and refund the entire balance paid, including the reservation fee, within thirty days.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Never. In order to maintain a high level of service for your special day, I typically will only work a single wedding per weekend.
What is your overtime rate?
One thing unique to my services is that I do not charge for overtime. When you invest your security and peace of mind with Spencer Weddings and Entertainment, your celebration time is only limited by the event venue constraints.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Typically, any event that is within two hours driving distance from San Jose does not carry any additional fees. This is something that we would discuss in much greater detail during our initial consultation.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Along with your signed contract, I require fifty-percent payment at the time of reservation. The remaining balance is broken into two or more payments.

Jason was fantastic! We were running short on time (3 months prior to the wedding) and he really came through.

Our appointments were well organized and he made us feel completely comfortable throughout the process.

He managed our 300 plus Chinese Wedding wonderfully by providing seamless transitions and careful coordination with our photographer.

Jason knows weddings and will provide professional and fun DJ services!

Jason Spencer is fantastic. I loved the fact that I just had to give him ideas and let him run with them. I did have a couple of specific pieces of music I wanted put together, one being a bit abstract, and he came through with flying colors. His use of up lighting in just the right places and the true genuine care he puts into his job is amazing.

Truly a very professional and passionate person to handle your big day.

Thanks for making my wedding special!!!!!!

Jason was amazing. From the beginning to the end he provided great service. We were planning most of our wedding long distance due to living in Mexico, which was difficult at times, but Jason accommodated us and our schedule. He had meetings with us on Skype and over the phone and really put us at ease over the planning. For the actual event he was great and had the dance floor full at all times. The wedding story was a great touch. His services were a bit expensive, but in line with other top DJs and well worth every dime. I highly recommend Jason and would pick him again.

Jason Spencer was great. I have experience DJing and I was very happy with his DJing skills. He was able to read the crowd very well and kept the dance floor packed all night long. When his set ended people still wanted to dance! He was able to recognize our music taste perfectly and played exactly what we wanted to hear. His MCing skills were also amazing as he kept everyone laughing and really set the mood for the evening. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for some peace of mind for their wedding.

My wife and I are *very* organized, detail-oriented people, and we were legitimately afraid that we wouldn't be able to find a DJ that would be able to keep up with us and deliver an experience that met our high standards. But Jason was different from the very start--truly, from the moment we had to fill out his intake form on the website, we could tell how much thought he puts into everything he does--and he stayed one step ahead of us the entire time. Though he did admit that we were the most detail-oriented couple he had ever worked with, he nevertheless managed our complex choreography seamlessly, and, among other people, we very much have him to thank for how perfect our special day turned out in the end.

Jason was fabulous. He worked with us from start to finish, really listening to our ideas and adding his own very helpful suggestions. I had many guests say that it was the best wedding reception they had ever been to, and how much they loved the DJ. He did creative things and took control where needed, but wasn't obnoxiously running the show like some DJs I've seen. He paid attention to all the details and we were able to trust him and have a great time. I highly recommend Jason!

We planned a fairly unconventional wedding ceremony, and Jason's enthusiasm & flexibility went a long way towards not only making it possible, but making us feel at ease with our decisions. He's a total professional who takes his job extremely seriously, while at the same time making it a fun experience for his clients. He managed to find just the right balance between advising us on our ceremony and reception while listening to our ideas, coming up with good suggestions when we needed them but also being flexible enough to incorporate the things that we wanted. Even though he'd never done a ceremony quite like ours, he stepped confidently into the challenge, and everything went perfectly. I whole-heartedly recommend Jason to anyone who wants a DJ/MC who won't just show up, but will go the extra mile towards making your wedding exactly how you want it.

Jason Spencer was a fantastic DJ for our wedding. He did a wonderful job of making his program engaging and personal. We really liked how he included personal stories from the bridal party throughout the celebration. Our favorite moment is when Jason led into our first dance by sharing the story of how we met. Jason really listened to what we wanted and reflected our tastes beautifully in the musical program, his tone and demeanor, and in the stories he told. Jason was a joy to work with. He had a lot of great ideas, and was thoughtful and flexible throughout the process. We couldn’t have been happier with the final program.
