Whether it's "the most important day     of your life," or just a chance to celebrate with loved ones... 

music can define your wedding.  

From the emotion of the ceremony, to the vibe of cocktails and dinner, to the joy of dancing the night away... the music has to be right.

I specialize in having the flexibility to cater to your tastes and the experience to know what works best.  I am happy to take as much input as you want to give, or allow you to have one less thing to worry about, knowing that you are in good hands.

I know that there is a thin line between cheesy and fun, and I will not force your grandmother to do the electric slide (unless you really want me to).  I will make sure that everything sounds great, your guests are happy, and that everyone is dancing.  

Below is a live recording of about two hours of dancing at a wedding from Summer 2018.  It's a mix of music to keep everyone happy and dancing, along with specific requests from the couple.

“Music is very important to us and Jake chose a great run of songs that kept people entertained from cocktail hour through dancing. He chose songs that perfectly summed up our tastes while also keeping people engaged throughout the night. Jake was true to his word that he was not obnoxious or intrusive; definitely not one of those overwhelming DJ’s trying to promote his brand at your wedding (we’ve all been to those weddings). It was about us. His mixing ability helped blend all of the dancing songs together great and always kept the tempo upbeat. Leading up to the big day, he also was very thorough and gave great recommendations on how to proceed logistically throughout the night. Couldn’t recommend highly enough!!”

Jake was the perfect fit for our laid-back and less traditional wedding. He helped us to navigate the things we did and didn’t want, and keeping a loose flow suiting our tastes and personalities while also having an intentionally structured event. Above all else, he kept our guests dancing for 3+ hours without skipping a beat.

Jake made sure that everyone had a great time at our wedding. He played music everyone was excited to dance to, and helped keep the evening on track... even seemlessly adjusting the timing when rain forced us to postpone our toasts.

Jake was the perfect DJ for our summer wedding. He is very personable and spent a lot of time working with my husband and me on our likes/dislikes. He asked about our expectations and helped us plan a good music schedule. He was also very kind to the younger members at the party who were interested in his equipment. We highly recommend Jake for anyone who is looking for an experienced DJ. He was an integral part of our awesome evening.

I was so impressed with how flexible and accommodating you were in working with the many diverse preferences and requests, and how you were able to keep things cohesive, moving, and engaging throughout the celebration. Somehow you managed to at once respond to and contribute to each phase of the celebration in ways that were so natural and seamless.
