Friends of mine got married in July 2018 and used Cape Town Jam as their DJ. My hubby and I were quite impressed with their service and asked them to play at our wedding at the 12 Apostles in March 2019. Mark was our DJ. From the start, Mark was responsive and extremely helpful and is genuinely a nice person to work with. He truly goes out of his way for his clients and met up with us months before the wedding to discuss what we wanted for our big day. He also met up with the venue to ensure he fulfilled their requirements too. He had never played at our wedding venue before and being a 5-star venue, they had a few policies that Mark had to adhere to which he was perfectly happy to do. He liaised with our wedding planner to ensure that all was in order. On the day, Mark brought an assistant to help set up and they were punctual and efficient. My sister-in-law sang at our ceremony (we had an outdoor ceremony) and we were quite worried about the sound and having the correct cables. But on the day, Mark was on the ball, and my sister, who performs regularly, was also very impressed! She has sung at weddings before where the DJ was unprepared and she said Mark was really organised and the sound was great. We gave Mark a playlist for our wedding and he executed it brilliantly. He was also happy to let us choose the tone and genre of our music. Well done Mark! We would highly recommend Cape Town Jam for your wedding. They are highly professional and good value. Melissa and Paul, August 2019 More...

We used Jam for our Wedding on the 4th of May 2019, Drikus was our DJ. I was impressed with the mash up of songs for the father and daughter dance that I requested and I really recommend using the low fog machine, it truly does give you that “dancing in the clouds” effect. Thank you for an enjoyable night ☺️ More...

Dude played at my surprise 30th and was actually a last minute replacement for the DJ we usually use. With no playlist, no prior knowledge of anyone at the party, he played THE BEST music. Everyone was impressed and the dance floor wasn't empty for a single song during the night More...

We used JAM (Mark) for our wedding 24March and I cannot express enough how fantastic he was. From the very first interaction we had ,he was eager and happy to do everything I had asked - from mixing songs to taking requests.
Such a pleasure to deal with and so professional.
I made contact with so many DJ`s until I found JAM and I was so happy when I did, not only is JAM extremely affordable, they are also willing and happy to do anything asked of them. Nothing is too much and everything is done with such happiness.
Mark comes highly recommended.
Thank you Mark!!

Mark and his team were responsible for the live music, MC and DJ services for our Indian pre wedding (9th Feb 2019) and Wedding (10th Feb 2019) and boy oh boy did they blew me away! Mark is extremely professional and followed all our instructions and requests. As is always, weddings never go exactly as planned but he kept us in the loop at all times and under his watch on the timeline everything went smoothly right till the end. I was initially apprehensive about the music as I wanted a blend of Bollywood and English music but Mark was very thorough in his research and both events were a huge hit!! Thankyou Mark for all your efforts and the cherry on top was his speech on togetherness and two vastly different cultures coming together in the name of love. He is a one stop shop for all your music needs! We HIGHLY recommend him Much love, Mr and Mrs Sabbat More...

If you are looking for the greatest wedding music with the best vibe for 7 hours straight, then DJ Werner is your guy! Werner played a huge part in making our wedding day one of the most fun and most memorable days ever. Even before the dancing started we had so many guests come up to us to say that this was the best music they had ever heard at a wedding - and once we started dancing the floor was never empty until we HAD to leave at 01h30! We think that compliment speaks for itself! Dankie Werner!!! More...

Noah’s Ark Pre-Primary school used Cape Town Jam for our annual school concert in September. What an absolute dream. Thank you for being so punctual and flexible with your times to accommodate us even though you were busy with other events too. We felt like we were your number one client. The thing that sold us, was Marc saying, “it’s not always about the money (I mean at the end of the day it has to be), but mostly it’s about building a relationship with my clients”. That sentence sold us hook line and sinker. Thank you for helping us in making our concert an absolute success. You and your team are FANTASTIC! We would recommend Cape Town Jam over and over again! Look forward to working with you guys in the future! More...
