Jay is hands down the best DJ! He was very pleasant to collaborate with leading up to the wedding––he was organized, took the time to understand our music preferences, and shared his expertise along the way. Most importantly, he kept the dance floor going all night and our guests are still talking about how stellar he was. Our European guests were especially impressed by how he got everyone on the dance floor from the get-go (as dancing typically starts later in Europe) until the very end. We also received compliments from our older guests on how he smoothly mixed older songs with newer ones––even our 90-year old grandma from Ecuador was dancing. We even saw family and friends who typically never put a foot on the dance floor dance. Jay did a stellar job of mixing our favorite songs with other songs that pleased the crowd, and handled (unexpected) incoming requests from guests with such ease. (He would not play any songs that did not fit within our guidelines without having the guest obtain our approval first, which we highly appreciated.) We had a sparkler moment leading up to a bonfire and were worried that people would not make it back to the dance floor after grabbing a s’more. Jay is so talented that some people never made it to the bonfire and others (including me) ran (yes, we ran!) back to the dance floor because the music was so good. We HIGHLY, STRONGLY, FULLY recommend Jay for any wedding or party, and hope that our paths will cross again in the future.
I can't say enough wonderful things about Jay and his team. We were initially supposed to work with JD Gluckstern from Jay's team who is a dream - extremely communicative, got our vision perfectly, and was ready to play the best dance DJ set of all time for our wedding. JD was so easy to talk to and work with we knew we were in good hands. Unfortunately, JD had an issue arise the week of our wedding preventing him from being able to make it and handled it in the most professional way ever - he sent us an extremely heartfelt message apologizing profusely about not being able to play for us, and had a solution already - Jay would be our DJ instead. We were upset to not work with JD who saw our vision so clearly, but it was apparent after 1 call with Jay that he would be exactly the same and deliver for us on our wedding day. He did not only deliver, Jay went above and beyond - he had everyone on the dance floor the entire night DRENCHED in sweat. We were told by everyone we spoke to that it was the most they ever danced at a wedding. He arrived early to set up and get everything together and truly made it feel like a night out partying as opposed to the same old wedding music you hear at every wedding. For our after-party, we wanted to keep the dancing going, but with the switch of locations our people needed to be eased back into it. Jay found the perfect song selection to get everyone back in the mood, one by one getting everyone back on the dance floor without having to say a thing over the microphone, and in no time the dance floor was packed again. I cannot say enough good things about this team. Not only did they make us feel calm and heard for our wedding, the songs Jay played (and we know JD would have too!!!) had everyone from our grandparents to our friends to our young cousins on the dance floor the entire night. You will be so happy you booked them!!!!
We had Jay DJ our wedding a few weeks ago and had a great experience! Honestly our guests are not dancer types but Jay had the dance floor packed. He played the songs we requested (including Chinese and Korean songs) and played all our queue songs (entrances, exits, etc) exactly as planned. Highly recommend!
DJ McElfresh did an amazing job at our wedding in late October 2019 at the Flander’s Hotel in Ocean City, New Jersey. Jay was efficient and excellent in his organization and communication leading up to the big day, as well as providing so many helpful suggestions throughout the planning of our reception. Not to mention, he was willing to travel over 100 miles just to host our wedding reception. DJ McElfresh did an incredible job on the night of our wedding! Jay had everyone up on the dance floor and managed to accommodate for our preferred traditions. All our guests raved about the great music selections he played and how he read the room to keep the party going. Thank you Jay for making our wedding reception so special and flawless!!! We highly recommend DJ McElfresh for any of your future events. - Alissa & Matt
Jay was by far our best vendor decision. Truly. He completely understood what we were looking for in a DJ even though WE didn't even know what we were looking for. He was so easy to work with, so prompt and professional while being light-hearted and so fun - he's a highlight of our wedding planning experience and wedding day memories. He laid things out for us so clearly and simply - and improvised effortlessly when my mom came through with an unexpected bouquet to toss at the wedding. My maid of honor and husbands best man both commented on how at ease they felt when he explained to them how the announcing and timing of the speeches would go, mic, etc. He played an amazing mix of music and was able to accommodate a huge range of genres - we had requests from the Postal Service, to Stevie Wonder, to the Spice Girls. To start, I had naively submitted my e-mail at a wedding show and was bombarded by various large-scale entertainment companies. To me, those big companies came off more like used car salesman and sports announcers. With every phone call and e-mail we "won" a new part of a package. I was drained and discouraged I would find a DJ that felt like "us" so a DJ had quickly fell to the bottom of our priority list. That was until we contacted our photographer (another phenomenal vendor!) for a recommendation to which she raved about Jay. He was super flexible in setting up a phone meeting. After my initial worries with those big companies, I rattled off a list of questions about introductions and announcements to which he said, "No worries, it won't be like sports announcing or anything like that." My husband and I were sold. He completely understood what we were looking for. With every phone call and e-mail, it felt like we were working with a friend. We never felt pressured or pushed. Such a pleasant, easy-to-work with guy. He just gets it. Our friends and family still rave about the music. They were so happy to hear their song recommendations played. They've commented Jay is exactly who they want to DJ their weddings so we hope we get to dance to his DJ'ing in the future! My favorite part of our wedding video is seeing our friends and family in pure bliss on the dance floor - even my Dad was dancing all night - who was fresh off a knee replacement surgery! Jay, we cannot thank you enough for giving us and our wedding guests such fun memories to look back on. We truly cherish the laughs and embarrassing moves we shared on the dance floor with our loved ones - they are our favorite memories of our day.
