For the fourth year in a row, J&S Entertainment will be providing the DJ and the P/A Sound System for the Thanksgiving Day Race at Hammonasset Beach in Madison, CT. There is always an incredible turnout at the event and we have a blast participating. All proceeds from the Sound Runner Madison Turkey Trot are donated to non-profit organizations along the Shoreline. Over the years they’ve raised more than $500,000 for local charities.

On Saturday December 12, 2015 we’ll be DJing the grand opening of Verizon – Your Wireless on Flanders Road in East Lyme, CT from 11:00-2:00. It’s located in the Stop & Shop plaza. Stop down and say hello, meet our DJ and buy a cellphone or some accessories. The new store is pretty slick but will be even better with live entertainment!

CT Wedding DJ – New Website

joe No Comments

We recently launched our new website and hope you enjoy the new look and mobile functionality. In order to serve our CT wedding DJ customers better, we needed to build a “responsive” website that displays equally well on smartphones and tablets as it does on a desktop computer. We’ve also taken a giant leap and done what many other DJs don’t do and that is publish our wedding package pricing proudly on our website. We know our prices are competitive. You’ll always find someone who will DJ an event for less. The big question is… Do they have a complete backup system on-site? Are they insured? What is the quality of their equipment? How experienced are they? From start to finish, with planning, client communication, equipment and music preparation, travel, etc., a typical 5 hour wedding reception takes about 15 hours to produce. Factor in overhead costs such as insurance, equipment costs and music licensing and you have to wonder what those lesser expensive DJ feel their time is worth. Moreover, how much effort will go into your event for that cost? We give every client our all and have the reputation to prove it. Call us today! 203-318-4004

CT wedding DJ at the Copper Beach Inn

J&S Entertainment Co. was on-hand at the Copper Beach Inn in Ivoryton, CT last night for the intimate wedding reception of Zemei and Michael. It was a quaint ceremony for family and close friends against the beautiful backdrop in picturesque Ivoryton, CT. What a fun dancing crowd!

Using a friend to DJ your Connecticut wedding reception?

joe No Comments

Are you planning on using a friend to DJ your wedding reception?… Are you sure you want to do that?

Having an inexperienced friend to DJ your wedding is not only a great way to lose a friend, it’s much like hiring a blind limousine driver to bring you to your reception.  It’s a one way ticket to disaster.

With the economy in the condition it’s in today we see more and more brides cutting back on their budget by using a friend to DJ their wedding.  Statistically speaking, 70% of post reception brides would have increased their DJ budget by 50% or more!

At J&S Entertainment Co.  Our wedding DJ experience is second to none in the state.  We have been the premiere source for CT wedding DJs since 1988.  We are not the lowest priced but far from the highest.

Your CT wedding DJ has the power to make your reception an unforgettable event for the rest of your life.  With over 100,000 titles of music ready for instant play, on-site backup equipment, top of the line commercial gear and years of Connecticut wedding DJ experience, why would you trust the most important part of your wedding reception to a “friend.”

But don’t just take it from us.  Let’s hear what some other CT wedding professionals have to say.

When asked:  “What would you say to a bride if she is thinking about using a friend to DJ her wedding?”  Christine Hussey, Director of Sales at The Inn at Longshore said this:

“My professional advice is not to hire friends as vendors. I have seen too many lost friendships follow after the wedding. Hiring a wedding professional is always the route to go, they have the experience and knowledge to ensure that the day unfolds the exact way it is supposed to. Having people work weddings that have no experience tends to stress out the other vendors because they have to “cover” for the person who is not the professional. Experience with scenarios lends itself to anticipating an unknown on the day of and professionals are able to deal with this quickly and efficiently.”

And Erin Calvimontes, Owner at Divine Celebrations Event Planners said:

“As a professional planner, I have had this scenario come up many times before and my first question always would be; “is your friend a professional wedding DJ?” and depending on the answer, if she actually knows, I would educate her on the important of having a professional wedding DJ.  Things can go from good to, bad to, worse, in a matter of minutes with a non-professional DJ who is not trained to “read the crowd”, react to the mood of the guests, switch up music to keep the mood lively, and actually keep the FLOW of the event running smoothly.

Educate her on the fact that a professional DJ is not just an “autopilot” IPOD with a microphone but, an entertainer with years of experience running events, a large library of music to fit everyone through all generations, and comes with a great personality at no additional cost!! LOL

You do get what you pay for!
Good luck!!”
