  • Julie was fantastic! She is an amazing DJ who clearly loves what she does. She is energetic, fun, and flexible (we had a time crunch). She played to the entire crowd and spent time with the guests to get a feel for the group. Everyone had a blast! All of our guests were commenting on the great music and she got everyone dancing! Julie was really great and we would recommend her for any event!

  • We definitely picked the right DJ! Julie had less than two months to plan for our wedding as we started planning late ourselves. Despite this, people at the wedding thought that she was a friend of ours that we had known for years. She really made the wedding all about us and she took the time to get to know us and our taste in music and what we had in mind for the mood of the wedding. She asked us for a list of do’s and dont's for the music and went from there to develop the perfect music set for the night. Communication with Julie was always fast, easy, and positive. Julie’s equipment was perfect for two rooms (cocktail and reception). The music was at the perfect volume for a party, but not so loud as to drown out all conversations. She welcomed guests’ requests, but ran them by us before playing especially if she got the impression that the request wouldn’t go over well with us. I swear, I think she has ESP! This woman knows her music!! Seriously! I was so impressed wi... Read more

  • What can I say about Julie that hasn't been said by others about Julie? As everyone else on Wedding Wire says, she's extraordinary and we've all been thrilled at how the evening turns out. Julie has a number of qualities that sets her apart for us: 1) Her knowledge of music is bar none one of the best I've encountered... She's stumped us on many occasions, and on the few occasions where we've stumped her, she's always enthusiastically incorporated those requests and suggestions. As she was able to put a number of songs that made people lift their heads up like they heard a pleasant surprise, she even emailed us a playlist after the wedding. 2) She turned into an incredible resource on weddings in general. She has a great command of timelines and venues and you can really trust her opinions and advice on giving the best experience possible! In fact, she even helped us pick the venue! In a roundabout way but there we were. 3) Her enthusiasm and good nature is infectious. She ... Read more

  • Julie was amazing. She really GOT us. Our amazing photographers, upon hearing about our day, realized Julie would be the perfect fit. And she was just that. Julie didn't miss a beat. She consulted with us for months before the wedding and had the patience and understanding to know when to encourage my quirky ideas and when to reign me in. She shared songs with us, even helping us find the perfect version of our first dance song to make it truly OURS. She made sure that the processional was dialed in for us, helping us to get the right songs at the right time, During cocktail hour, she had already made a mix of songs so that she could mingle with the crowd to take their temperature. I couldn't believe how WELL she knew us by the time the reception rolled around. There were so many moments when I would just laugh in sheer delight at the moments that she orchestrated. I am sad that it's over because it was SUCH a delight to collaborate with Julie. I can't say enough good things... Read more

  • Julie is amazing. My wife and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Since our wedding, our guests--young and old--keep saying to us: "That DJ was amazing!" Julie is extremely knowledgeable about music and how to make the party flow smoothly: how to get people dancing, how to transition to dinner, and how to get people back on the dance floor. Julie expertly led us through the music planning process. She offered sage advice and took our direction. More than giving Julie a "Play/Do Not Play" list, we (by choice) explained our vision and depended on Julie to translate our vision into music. What we crudely sketched out, Julie painted into a masterpiece. A few other great things: 1. Julie circulated during the cocktail hour asking our guests for requests. Guests loved this and have commented on it repeatedly. Julie edited the requests accordingly. 2. Julie was responsive to who was on the dance floor (older guests, guests in their 20s and 30s, guests under 20) and played th... Read more

  • My wife and I hired Julie Jakolat to DJ our wedding, and we could not possibly be happier with our decision. She is an extraordinary lady with a vast range of musical tastes and knowledge, an eager commitment to her professional responsibilities, and a fun, outsized personality more than capable of keeping the party poppin'. And trust me, we asked a lot of her. Our wedding featured several complicated moving parts and a meticulously curated playlist, yet Julie met every demand. She was with us through each step of the process with attentive phone calls, emails and site visits, up to and including our rehearsal. Not only did Julie spin tracks for the reception, she was able to run multiple mics and cue up specially selected songs during our ceremony. She never missed a beat. More than even that, I appreciated the cheerful and enthusiastic regard Julie exuded from Day One. Wedding vendors will give you the white-glove treatment for only so long before it becomes obvious that t... Read more

  • We are so glad we chose Julie to DJ our wedding! The time she took to understand our ideas and preferences was well spent and led to a reception that felt deeply personal and exciting. Our guests loved that she came around to the tables and asked for suggestions. She was so fun and friendly that many guests assumed that she was a friend of ours! She was also very quick on her feet when some details changed last minute. She was a pleasure to work with. - Lauren & Michael

  • Hire Julie!! Every interaction with her was a pleasure. She put us at ease from the very beginning. My husband is a musician and we both love to dance, so choosing the right DJ was an important part of our planning process. We spoke with 2 other DJs before our call with Julie, but she immediately put us at ease in a way the others hadn't. We made a list of about 40-50 songs or artists we liked and Julie took it from there -- she seemed to know exactly the type of music we wanted and the vibe we were trying to create. Julie made the rounds at the cocktail hour and asked friends and family for song requests. I wasn't sure how this would pan out but the guests absolutely loved it. It made them feel like they were a special part of the reception. We are STILL receiving compliments from friends and family about Julie -- young people, old people, our friends who never dance, our friends who always dance, EVERYONE thought she was fantastic. She's not only a great DJ, she's a lot of fu... Read more

  • Honestly, I wish I had another event coming up just so I could work with Julie again! She was nothing less than fantastic and made everything regarding planning as simple and stress-free as possible. Julie is classy, intelligent and has a great sense of humor - her personality and musical talent fit in perfectly at our wedding and we could not have been happier! Look no further - Julie is your DJ!!

  • We had an amazing experience with Julie as the DJ at our wedding! She was very helpful in planning our music selection, timing of events and general flow of the whole event. She also brought up lots of pointers that we would never have thought of on our own! Everyone had a wonderful time dancing at our wedding and nobody wanted to stop when it was time to leave. Thank you so much, Julie, for the most wonderful night!

  • I cannot possibly put into words how incredible Julie was!!!! We had our wedding at the Roxbury Barn two days ago, and our guests have not stopped talking about how amazing our DJ was. Julie was in touch with us months before the wedding to ask for song preferences and dislikes, and really tried to get to know us and our tastes. She didn't try to push anything just because it "should" be played, but tried to keep in mind what would make everyone happy--young and old. At the wedding, while she played beautiful music during the cocktail hour, Julie spoke to our family and friends to take requests for later and get a sense of musical tastes. She checked in with us throughout the night to make sure we were happy, and the dance party was SO MUCH FUN!!!!!! Everyone was thrilled with the musical selection, and Julie did such a good job of reading the room and playing the right songs for the moment. Our day would not have been nearly as amazing and magical without Julie--she was a huge part of... Read more

  • Julie flawlessly combined pop, punk, folk, oldies, hardcore, instrumental, and the Walking Dead theme to keep everyone crying during the ceremony, us (the couple) happy, and our guests dancing. From the very beginning, Julie was intensely focused on making sure we were happy and aware her process, and even helped us modify a song to use as our first dance. She was up for any challenge we threw at her (there were a few), and was a blast. Our guests went out of the way to say how great she was, how they'd never seen a DJ enjoy their work so much. She's fun, inventive, flexible and above all professional. Everything was executed so well and with so much enthusiasm!

  • If there is anyone that is truly deserving of a 5 star rating, it's DJ Julie. She really made our wedding a fantastic, enjoyable, and stress-free experience. Using her professional background Julie was able to make suggestions for moments that my husband and I couldn't figure out, but at the end of the day she allowed us to make every decision for ourselves. She was very accommodating throughout every aspect of the planning and day-of activities, and I still receive RAVE compliments from our guests about how fantastic Julie was. It was great to have the best DJ at our wedding, but it was even better that she became our friend.

  • Julie was a HUGE part of what made our wedding a success. She met with us over Skype and in person to help craft the "feel" of our wedding, sifted patiently through our huge list of "Love to Haves" and "Nice to Haves," and even sent us a folder with dozens of versions of Hava Nagila. Julie was extremely professional and fun throughout our planning process, and working with her felt so personalized. She had a great presence at the event, and a good understanding of a DJ's role (it was really important to us not to have a cheesy, booming "DJ voice", and Julie totally understood). The day of the wedding, Julie arrived early and met with the venue coordinator to make sure everything got set up properly. We didn't have to worry about a thing. From the first dance through the (changed at the last second) last song of the night, the dance floor was packed with our friends, family, and my husband's 95 year-old great aunt! So many of our friends have told us what a blast they had at ou... Read more

  • Julie was a fantastic DJ for our wedding! She was professional, not intrusive, and super fun! From the beginning of the day, she dealt with last-minute setup changes, went with the flow, and was extremely pleasant and easygoing. Julie also accommodated our very long playlist, took requests (and un-requests!), and looked like she was having as much fun as the guests while she worked. I got about twenty comments from guests during and after the wedding about how awesome she was. My only complaint is that between the time that we booked Julie and about 6 weeks before the wedding (when we started talking about playlists), she was a little bit hard to get ahold of, and wouldn't respond to emails immediately. But when it counted, she was very responsive, and she was really an awesome DJ. She accommodated all of our requests, and really made the wedding have the ambience and vibe that we asked for. I absolutely recommend Julie to anyone looking for a fun and exciting DJ who will make your day... Read more
