Powder Ridge Mountain Park wedding DJ

joe No Comments

For the second time in as many weeks, J&S Entertainment was selected to provide the sound, lights and ceremony services for Jeffrey and Mallory’s mountain top wedding ceremony and reception in the lodge. This time the ceremony was at the top of the mountain overlooking picturesque Middlefield, CT. Down in the lodge, we transformed the room with uplights and starry night ceiling projection and provided wireless speakers outside for seamless music between the lodge and the patio. It was a fun event and the clients were very satisfied.

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!!”
