We hired James to DJ our wedding on New Years Eve. He was nothing short of incredible! When setting everything up, he was extremely responsive and accommodating. He responded very quickly to emails, always knew the answers to questions and did a great job of preparing us for our big day. He has a great online tool for organizing what songs you want played/don't want played, which was easy to use and very helpful. He met with us in person to go over everything and took great notes and asked great questions. He was in contact before the wedding and really made us feel at ease about the music. On the day of the wedding he was prompt and on time. Our florist was supposed to set up some NYE party supplies, but never did. James stepped right up and helped us out with it, which was so incredibly nice. During dinner, he did an amazing job of prepping people for their speeches. He was great at controlling the mic and making sure everything went smoothly. We had two songs for our first dance and he transitioned them with ease. During the night he played all the right music. He knew how to get everyone on the dance floor, both the young and old. James really knows how to read the room and get the most people out on the dance floor. I can't express enough how amazing he was!!!! At the end of the night he still had people out on the dance floor chanting "one more song!" His set up is also really cool and visually appealing, definitely one of the best DJ booths we've ever seen. He also did up-lighting for us which looked beautiful. He was so accommodating, polite and overall a really great DJ. If you want an amazing wedding where people are dancing all night then definitely hire James!!! More...

James is the perfect wedding DJ. I swear I'm tempted to hire him just to DJ our house warming party coming up, he's that fun. He's very personable, professional, and thoughtful. He really cares about the experience we get and about our wedding.The one thing that stood out most to me was this:As the groom I was giving my dinner speech. I mentioned to one of my groomsman a time in which he was playing a random tune on his guitar and I just started singing a song I felt fit the tune. It was a great moment and I told my groomsman I'll never forget it. As soon as I finished my speech James played the song. The one I had mentioned in my speech. I hadn't thought to tell him about it. I hadn't thought to ask. But he was listening and did the exact right thing in that moment because he cares.That, I'll never forget.So yeah, hire him. You won't find anyone else more willing to do anything to make your special day perfect. More...

Simply put, James was the best DJ we could have chosen!! From the start of our planning, he was eager, friendly and had excellent communication. We requested specific songs to be played during our dinner, instead of the traditional dinner music, and people raved about it!! He was spot-on with our wishes. At one point in the wedding, a guest pointed and asked, “Is that your DJ?”.. and sure enough, James was standing on a ledge, playing air guitar!! We had a blast.. thanks James!! :D More...

I hired James as a DJ and Emcee for my wedding after meeting him at a friend's wedding earlier this year. I had an excellent experience and I would *highly* recommend him to anyone who's looking for a DJ! He was very professional, friendly, and extremely easy to work with... I was so busy with other wedding details that it was a huge relief to tell him what I was looking for and then sit back and not worry about it (and when I did reach out to him he replied promptly and addressed all of my questions in detail).
And he did an amazing job! He kept the dance floor full the entire night (which surprised me because I thought my friends/family were not really the dancing type). He was able to keep the reception running smoothly despite a few hiccups with the food, and he played exactly the kind of music my husband and I love.
Overall I was so happy with my experience, and hiring DJUj was one of the best decisions of my entire wedding-planning process.

To echo the universal consensus among these reviews: James was fantastic. Could not have been easier to work with, took our suggestions/preferences seriously, advised us whenever we needed it, and kept the place BUMPING. It's amazing that there are more expensive DJs out there, because I can't imagine what else you could ask for in a DJ. Two weeks later and we've already had a guest from our wedding ask for James's contact info for her niece's wedding. More...

James is the best DJ ever! I went to two of my friends weddings as him as their DJ and needed him to DJ my wedding! So much so that I picked my wedding date based on his availability. He is so great to work with; quick to respond, personable, reasonable and flexible. We had a last minute change with introduction order and songs and James was flexible and quickly fixed it. He was amazing! Definitely recommend. More...

I came across James at a wedding approximately 1 year before mine and was instantly sold on his talents. James was so easy to work with in the planning process and he would respond to emails in the most timely manner. The uplighting that he provides is an amazing touch and he lets the bride/groom pick the color. James was able to keep nearly the entire reception on the dance floor for 3.5+ hours! Even the grandparents that usually sit at weddings were busting moves! My wife and I only hand a handful of songs requested and we let James do the rest, and we are so glad we did. He mixes the perfect amount of music from oldies to hits of today and it works seamlessly. James is a top notch professional, he's courteous, kind, and he's a U.S. Veteran, so there's little to dislike about the man. I will 100% be referring James to all my friends and family from here on out. Thanks a million James. More...

James was an absolute joy to work with. He made the day of our wedding so enjoyable because I never had to worry about a single thing. He made sure we were on track with time during the reception and if we weren't, he was able to change things around like it was meant to be that way and didn't even break a sweat. We told him our taste in music and he pulled through with the best songs to keep everyone dancing! He was always so easy to communicate with and just made the whole process leading up to the big day a breeze. Which we all know planning a wedding is not the easiest thing but I never stressed out about the DJ portion of it because of how great James is! Will 10 out of 10 always recommend him to anyone who is looking for a DJ. More...

Uncle Jimmy throws one HELL of a party! While he was very organized, knowledgeable, professional, and responsive, what we liked the most about working with him was that on the day of our event, we didn't have to worry. .. didn't have to verify... didn't need to check in... we were free to have a great time and, as they say, leave it to the professionals. And when we did have last minute changes, Jimmy handled them with grace and made it seem like everything had been the plan all along.

If you are looking for a DJ, look no further. I know that the next time we are having an event, Jimmy will be our first and only phone call.

Jimmy (DJUj) was a great DJ and I’m super happy we booked him for our wedding. I highly doubt you’ll find a better DJ for the price, he is an absolute steal. He lists the prices for his services on his website which in the wedding planning world is unheard of and in my opinion is so helpful. You should run, not walk, and book him right now. He is super easy to get in touch with and is very responsive to emails. You will often get a reply from him in a few hours at the most, often times he responds in minutes. We booked him to DJ our wedding as well as providing up lighting for the reception space. It looked amazing and really helped to transform the space. He is a wonderful MC as well and did a great job making announcements and letting people know what was going on. The sound during the ceremony and reception was great and we never had any issues. Like pretty much all of Jimmy’s reviews say he is a master at keeping people on the dancefloor. At any point during the reception our dancefloor was never anywhere close to being empty. At a few points during the reception he also made a point to check in with us and make sure things were going alright. He was also very accommodating when my husband and I asked him if he could play certain songs soon, he moved them up to the very next songs to be played. He really goes out of his way to make sure his couple is happy. I would highly recommend booking him for your wedding! Thanks Jimmy! More...

I can assure you won't receive a better DJ in the Chicagoland area that's as personable, committed and flat out fun than James. For those of you who don't know "UJ" stands for Uncle Jimmy, and after a night like I had, he sure felt like he was one of the family.

We didn't want a wedding where it was only new songs playing and the older folks felt like they couldn't get up and dance and Jim definitely delivered!
