  • Wow. Where do I even begin? Julie was perfect. I can't stress PERFECT enough! From our very first conversation while we were searching for the right DJ, she was super nice, spoke with us both professionally and like a friend. We knew pretty much right away she was the right choice- and BOY were we happy we picked her! Communication in the months leading to the wedding day was a breeze- she was super responsive and so enthusiastic- like she was looking forward to it as much as we were! Any ideas as far as specific songs or reception timing, she was right on board, or offered an even better idea I hadn't thought of! Julie really went above and beyond a DJ's duties in my book- she helped me lay out the timeline of the whole reception weeks in advance, and guided our guests along seamlessly so no one was standing around wondering what to do or where to go. And let's not forget the PARTY! She built a fabulous dance party, got almost every guest on the dance floor, even the shy, and our 90 y... Read more

  • Literally- one of the best decisions we made for our wedding was selecting Julie as our DJ. Julie didn't just go the extra mile to understand our taste in music, and the vibe we wanted for our night- she did a marathon. We were looking for a DJ who understood our dislike of all things corny and over-the-top, and we found it with Julie. From blasting our song outside the venue early so we would hear it as we got some photos taken (making me burst into happy tears) to taking time to talk to our guests during cocktail hour, Julie played the perfect song at the perfect time again and again. Our guests raved about her, and days later I am getting texts asking how we found such an awesome DJ. Can't recommend her enough.

  • We hired Julie to DJ our wedding 3 years ago, but when I was at a family member's wedding this weekend I couldn't help but be grateful all over again. Sometimes you just don't realize how fortunately you were! Julie miked us for our outdoor ceremony and everyone could hear everything. (For the wedding we attended this was not the case! I was sitting in the second row and was having difficulty hearing.) She set up a secondary setup to play music for our cocktail hour on the patio, which was perfect. Best of all, she balanced the sound in our reception hall so that the music could be heard by everyone, but wasn't blasting out anyone's ear drums. (At the wedding we attended, the DJ put both his speaks at the same end of the room so that one end of the room was painfully louder than the other.) On top of all that, she was a complete class act - super fun and responsive to the atmosphere of the party, right on top of announcing all the important moments, but never doing any awkward commenta...

  • I am so thrilled that I booked Julie for my wedding! We had a wonderful initial meeting where she got a sense of what we liked (and didn't like :)) She was very communicative via email leading up to the wedding. Then, on the day, she went around to our guests asking for requests, which she ran by us. I had several guests comment on how awesome she was, and how much fun she was having! My sister even said she wants to book Julie for her future wedding! Julie is more than a DJ, she becomes your friend. Thank you for everything!

  • Julie was the best! She was very responsive when working with us and was open to any suggestions we had and was very helpful when I had questions on the wedding day timeline. She kept the reception fun and upbeat. She was such a pleasure to work with!

  • Julie is the GREATEST. She DJ'd our wedding in June of 2017, and from the moment we spoke on the phone I was smitten with her. She has phenomenal taste, listens to everything you tell her (she picked up on my likes and dislikes faster than I did!), is charismatic and the consummate professional. Julie not only DJ'd, but really helped us run our wedding, from set up to ceremony to the very last song. She asked our guests for song requests during the cocktail hour, checked in with us regularly to make sure we were happy, and is the brightest ray of sunshine you can imagine. Our guests RAVED about her, and we agree wholeheartedly. Hire her! Hire her now!

  • Julie was: -Professional. Great communication and organization leading up to the wedding. She prepared playlists, song folders, and video chats to discuss logistics. She was flexible and accommodating as things changed, working with our cocktail band and wedding planner. -Great personality. Wedding guests all remarked how fun our DJ was. She went around prior to the reception and took requests to make sure everyone felt welcome on the dance floor. She was dancing and smiling every time we looked over at her.

  • Julie was exactly what we were looking for! From the very beginning, she was kind, meticulous and aligned with all the priorities we had; to focus on making this day about my mine and my husband's union and it was exactly that-- reflective of our life, personality and love! My husband is a musician and was very particular as to what music was and was not played. Julie had multiple Skype dates with us, she prepped an amazing cocktail hour (and a half) of music, surveyed our crowd for requests during it and then killed it during the reception. She has tons of fun while doing her job, and appropriately checked in throughout the night without overwhelming us. She knew how important the music was to us and did her best to represent us. She even attended our ceremony, picked up on lyrics read during it and then played it as the first song after our first dance! We invited her to our after party and brunch the next day, where she was an absolute pleasure to share a drink with! It was the most... Read more

  • Julie was awesome - she was great to work with and really flexible with how we approached the music selection. We had an outdoor / tented wedding and her equipment suited the event perfectly. Her musical taste and song selections fit each stage of the wedding day and we couldn't be happier with how things turned out. A lot of friends and family have commented on how enthusiastic she was when DJ'ing.

  • My wife and I are so grateful to Julie Jakolat for the incredible DJ services she provided. Julie gave us personalized attention from the first phone call (three months ago) to today (2 weeks after the wedding). She spent time getting to know us and our musical tastes, which I think helped her understand the vibe we wanted for our wedding. On the day of the event, Julie mingled with our guests and asked them for requests. Only when the dance party started did I understand the genius of this approach. Our guests got so engaged and excited when their requests came on, and it kept the playlist fresh and surprising for us (though I should add that Julie gave us veto power to remove requests we didn’t like). She kept our dance party going full force for four hours straight. Additionally, Julie helped us on the day of our wedding in ways that went above and beyond her duties as a DJ, which was essential for things running smoothly. She was our right-hand person throughout ... Read more

  • Put simply, DJ Julie is amazing! Picking a DJ to entertain your guests was a daunting task for us. As band and choir geeks, music is a very important part of our lives. We met Julie on a rainy evening for a “get to know each other” session. Within the first minutes the two of us knew that we had found the perfect person. From that first meeting, Julie stayed in touch with us and checked-in to make sure the stress of planning wasn’t causing us too much worry. She worked with us and all our musical quirks. We were at a venue she had not played previously so she came out a week before the wedding to get a visual of the layout and to check out the acoustics of the place (metal sided barn). On the day of the wedding, she milled with our guests during cocktail hour and took notes and song requests. It got our guests involved and also made them feel more at home with her. I can’t tell you how many times I heard a guest exclaim, “I love this song!” during cocktails. At dinner we ha... Read more

  • Booking DJ Julie was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! My husband and I had strong opinions about the music we wanted for our wedding reception (I'm a professional music writer), and DJ Julie perfectly managed our ridiculously long playlists, obsessive spreadsheets, and silly guest requests on the day of. The dance floor was always poppin', and the music definitely made it feel like OUR wedding, and no one else's. Our guests LOVED her; in fact, they invited her to our after party, and several of them have already tried to book her for their own weddings! My best advice? Book her early & often!

  • Julie is the BEST! My Husband and I really wanted to get away from the typical "Westchester" County DJ, and by that we mean someone who would tell you to get up and dance, come with cheap blaring colored strobe lights and play songs like the macarena ! Now if this is your thing, that is cool and I am sure Julie can accommodate, but if your sensibilities are more music savvy and you have loved music your whole life then Julie is the person for you! Julie is not your typical DJ, she is an analytical thinker who genuinely understands peoples personalities and caters music to your day. She speaks to your guests to get a feel and an understanding for their tastes and then goes over it with you. She creates a list for you, or you create one for her (which is what we did because we are obsessed with music) and then she fine tunes it to go along with each event of the day/night. This kept every generation of person in our space feeling happy and in the mood to party and continue the night! It ... Read more

  • My husband and I met Julie while checking out a possible venue site for our May 2016 wedding. Although we chose not to go with the venue, we loved our conversation with Julie as she completed her final set-up for an upcoming wedding on site. From that first conversation we knew Julie was enthusiastic, flexible, easy going, professional, and personable...just the type of person we were looking for in a DJ. We were not looking for any over the top lighting features, photo booths, or other craziness...just not us. Julie's set up is simple and streamlined. As other's have said she works with you from day 1. She sent us suggestions as needed and accommodated our needs as desired. She even thought about us as she met a country singer on a plane trip! We had so many compliments from our guests the day of and I'm sure will continue to have them in the future. Guests felt that Julie did a good job accommodating their needs and keeping the party going without being too intr... Read more

  • When my fiancee and I were planning our wedding, the decision to look for a DJ was kind of a sore subject. We were resigned to the idea that most DJ's were cheesy and played bad overplayed music as a default and never thought we would find someone who knew what to do with our musical tastes. Out of frustration I entered "Indie Alternative Non Cheesy Hudson Valley DJ" into Google, kind of as a joke on myself, and up popped the Wedding Wire profile for A Different Spin. At our first meeting with Julie, we spent about 3 hours just talking about music. We had obviously clicked! Hiring Julie was probably the best wedding planning decision e made. She was amazing! So many of our guests told us how great the music was. She built the perfect playlist based on all of our conversations and emails and she did such an amazing job at working on the fly as well... Throwing in songs from the movies we used as table markers and adding in songs to get EVERYONE dancing that still didn't sound out... Read more
