  • Our wedding was the best day of our lives and the music was a huge part of it. I started planning our wedding while living on the other side of the world, but Jay was super flexible with his time to make sure we could chat ahead of time, which I greatly appreciated. As the wedding neared, we filled out a music questionnaire and had a call to go over requests, do not plays, the timeline of the day and how to pronounce everyone’s names. He asked what artists my now husband and I like to get a feel for our day. The direction I gave him was anything we can dance too, top 40 and top 40 when I was in college - so, pretty vague. Jay absolutely crushed it all night! The dance floor was packed for hours, each song being better than the next. My one friend said she couldn’t even eat dinner because even the music during the dinner session was too good. People commented all throughout the night that they were having the best time on the dance floor and were still getting texts from people sayi... Read more

  • DJ Jay McElfresh made our wedding party a non-stop party! We hired him after hearing him at a friend’s wedding, even though our tastes differ greatly. We were blown away by his ability to keep the energy of the wedding so high and read the crowd so well. He was able to MC the event perfectly without being too overbearing.I also really appreciated Jay taking the time to speak to us before the wedding to make sure he knew how to pronounce the names of everyone in the wedding party. Everyone told me they loved the music and asked if we gave him a playlist. The truth was, we met with Jay 1 time and he seemed to just “get” us. He gave us a worksheet to fill out and we gave a few favorite artists, but from that he crafted an incredible playlist. One guest also told us “I could really hear everything, the sound equipment was incredible.” I cannot express enough how amazing and talented he is!! Everyone who has Jay DJ their event is extremely lucky and hiring the best.

  • Jay was unavailable the day of our wedding so he set us up with another of his DJs, Cousin Cole, and we had a perfect experience with Cole. Super easy to work with leading up to the day of, despite me knowing next to nothing about music. He incorporated our suggestions when we had them, but was happy to pitch ideas when we didn't. We were too busy before the wedding to check in at all, and yet everything about the music was completely flawless, and we were getting compliments on the music selection all night.

  • Music was an important aspect of our wedding for us and Jay truly made it a perfect night of music, dancing, and fun! Everyone kept talking about how awesome our DJ was and we could not have agreed more! Jay met with us and got an understanding of what we wanted and then was also so attentive to what our guests were feeling that night. Guests of all ages were up on the dance floor! There were so may sing-a-longs on the dance floor and some crowd surfing to the Cranberries sprinkled in haha!!! My husband and I didn't leave the dance floor once! If you don't want your average cheesy MC type wedding and just want to have fun with your friends and family, Jay is the way to go!

  • Wow. WHERE TO BEGIN. I worked two weddings with Jay in Brooklyn (I'm a wedding photographer) and knew he was going to be my DJ before I was even engaged. I even asked him DURING the first wedding (again, before I was engaged) if he would travel to Philadelphia to DJ my future wedding. Trust me when I say this-Jay is the best. Stop reading reviews and just book him!!! I've only ever worked with one DJ that even comes close to being as good as Jay. Leading up to the wedding he was hilarious, professional, honest and just made the experience so easy. Throughout the wedding, I kept saying "how did he do that?! he's so good!!!" when he would transition from one song to another that in my mind wouldn't necessarily make sense but, when he did it, it was perfect. There wasn't a single weird transition or awkward silence, and there was definitely no corny MC-ing. All our guests loved him. I'm without a doubt going to continue to recommend him to my couples whenever I get the chance.

  • Jay was amazing! Totally got our vibe and played all our favorite stuff. Great to chat with him beforehand to give him the run of show and a list of our requested songs. Couldn’t recommend him more highly!

  • We hired Jay for our recent wedding in Brooklyn and it was the best decision ever! From our very first consultation, Jay totally got our vibe and we knew we were in good hands. He provided us with a really helpful wedding worksheet and went over it with us in detail prior to the wedding to make sure we were on the same page. Fast forward to the night of our wedding and OMG it was just a non-stop dance party!! Jay completely knocked it out of the park! I couldn’t feel my feet for the next 2 days I was dancing so much! Jay was also an awesome emcee - getting everyone’s attention when necessary and making sure we stuck to our timeline without being cheesy or over the top. All our guests raved about how awesome he was as well! If you want your wedding to be a non stop dance party like we did, you’ve found your guy!

  • ay was truly fantastic! After our initial emails and conversation with Jay, we had total confidence that he understood what we were looking for in a DJ. Jay was extremely communicative and showed a great deal of care and responsibility for our big day. Most importantly, Jay read the crowd well, and played memorable and perfect sets that had the whole wedding dancing the night away. We can't recommend Jay enough!

  • Stop looking for a DJ for your wedding. You found him. It's Jay McElfresh. And with a dope name like that, who could compete?! My husband and I can't say enough good things about Jay. Long story short - he #SLAYED! He is everything you want in a DJ - he listens to your "do not play list", he pulls from the playlist/list of songs that he asks that you curate for him during the planning phase, and he takes the time to get to know you and your spouse. BONUS -He is super stylish and sounds smooth as hell on the mic (the opposite of many DJ who are over-the-top, corny and literally sound like auctioneers on the mic). From the very beginning we knew Jay was our guy. He took the time to chat with my husband and I about our expectations, taste in music, and overall vision. He also had us complete a Music Worksheet which was super helpful to iron out all the details like wedding party announcements, couple's first dance, parent dances, toasts, and most importantly to detail the songs we...

  • Jay DJ'd our wedding last weekend in CT and was the BEST. From our first communication, he was SO easy and helpful to work with. We had an in-person meeting many months before the wedding and, filled out a questionnaire a few weeks before the wedding to finalize our music selection, and then did a final call with Jay to go over the details. He is super organized and professional - a big relief to a busy bride! My main concern in the weeks leading up to the wedding was the order of the reception (when to do speeches, when to cut cake, when to do dances?!) and Jay really, really helped me finalize the timeline. He is a real pro with tons of experience. On the day of, he was fun, professional, and flexible. His emceeing skills are also excellent and everything went according to schedule! Most importantly, everyone had so much fun and the dance floor was crowded all night long. I just have to think up another event to be able to book Jay again...

  • We couldn't be happier with our choice of Jay as our wedding DJ. We spent a lot of time researching and interviewing DJs over several months. It was super important to us to find someone who had good taste, was flexible with our needs, who cared about making our experience personal, and who wasn't over-the-top with their style. When we got off our first phone call with Jay, we felt immediately comfortable and confident we found the right person. And our actual experience with Jay fulfilled all of those initial impressions. Jay was very responsive, was very accommodating our many requests (even when they changed last minute), and provided great feedback throughout our planning process. My biggest desire was to have a DJ set that kept everyone on the dance floor the whole night and, with a mixed culture and multi-generational wedding, that wasn't necessarily an easy task. But through a lot of collaborative planning, Jay expertly executed the setlist to where the dance floor was absolutel... Read more

  • We worked with DJ Mikey Palms specifically and it was a wonderful experience. We really wanted to make sure that people had a good time and just enjoyed themselves. That definitely happened. He made sure the dance floor stayed packed and that the vibe stayed upbeat and lively. He also worked with us really closely in making the playlist and made sure that every aspect of the wedding, not just the reception, was handled perfectly. It was amazing. It was great working with Mikey and I highly recommend him and DJ McElfresh's services/

  • Jay was absolutely amazing. He was so communicative and flexible, as we are from Maryland and had our wedding on Long Island. He understood our style and what we wanted, and kept people dancing all night! We loved watching him have fun, too! Thank you, Jay!

  • Jay was the perfect DJ to work with from start to finish. From the moment we first met with him to review our wedding timeline and review our music choices, he made us and those involved in the ceremony feel confident and excited for the big day. He totally understood our music choices and was able to play everything from classic Billie Holiday to David Bowie to The Cranberries and everything in between. He was very aware of timing and did an excellent job pacing the reception from the toasts to the first dance to party time. He kept our crowd dancing until midnight and they ranged in age from 26 to 86-- no one left early!
