Hannah & Robert, July 2015
"Jamie was absolutely great at our wedding! he played the exact music i had asked and even played some games with us! Everyone had a blast at the wedding dancing and he had my 80 year old grandfather out on the dance floor (First time I've ever seen him dance!)"
Dalila & TIm, May 2015
"Jamie knew exactly how to keep the dancing going. Many of my friends told me after the wedding that I had picked the list myself, it was all Jamie and exactly what we wanted! He was very accommodating with our large bridal party also. We requested a different reception entrance song for each couple and Jamie cut each song to fit our needs! Amazing night! We couldn't be happier!"
Susan & Katie, May 2015
"Jamie was the best dj we could have asked for at our wedding. We knew he would be a great fit for us when we met him for drinks to talk about our event. During our first meeting he walked us through what usually happens and asked questions we never would have known to ask. He worked beautifully with our musician, came early, set up everything seamlessly, and was a calm presence in the midst of the chaos pre-wedding.
But the best experience of all was the wedding that he so easily fit into. He listened to our desire to have a super fun dance party - and nailed it. The party went for hours. I will always remember being on the dance floor with family and friends, singing at the top of my lungs to songs I love, dancing with abandon, one song impossibly better than the next.
I will be forever grateful that Jamie agreed to DJ our wedding. I can't imagine having anyone else."
Rachael & Thomas, May 2015
We had an amazing experience working with Jamie for our Philadelphia wedding! We searched high and low for a DJ that would provide us with good indie and alternative music during dinner, and awesome dance music during the rest of the reception. Jamie did just that! We didn't want a cliche DJ with a big production and flashing lights, just someone that fit both of our personalities well. Our friends and family loved all of the music that played during our entire reception, and we received so many compliments on the DJ and choice of songs! Jamie got everyone up and dancing during the reception and we had an amazing time! Our favorite part of the wedding by far was the "Circle of Love" at the end of the reception! Thank you so much for being such an awesome part of our day!! We can't thank you enough!
DilShanie & Philip, September 2014
"Jamie was the best wedding DJ we could have ever imagined and we would highly recommend him for any occasion! He is a lovely person and very easy to talk to. He was immediately warm and welcoming when we met him and was excellent in ascertaining our musical tastes and working with us to include some songs we definitely wanted played and some genres within which he could experiment based on the mood of the evening. This was ideally suited to our purposes. Jamie managed all our requests with grace and ease! We asked whether he could function as an emcee for the wedding events too, introducing some of the folks making speeches and so on, and he was happy to accommodate us. What's more, he did a brilliant job. Jamie brought his own equipment to the venue, which in our case was a restaurant with an outdoor and an indoor area, and he set everything up beautifully for us to use microphones and speakers for the ceremony outdoors and for people to make speeches and groove to music indoors.
We were coordinating much of our overall wedding planning while both of us were abroad for a few months for work just prior to the festivities, so Jamie's flexibility, speed, and reliability over email was a godsend and made for a smooth and calm process overall. On the day of our wedding, Jamie had everything set up wonderfully and played the BEST setlist of songs for our friends and family members (representing at least a 7-decade age span!) to enjoy and to get out there on the dance floor and bust a move! It was very satisfying to see everyone having such a great time. We certainly did!
Suffice to say, putting Jamie in charge of DJ'ing our wedding was an excellent decision and we would absolutely recommend him for any occasion, big or small. Your wedding and planning process will be much better for it! And a quick story: A few days before our Big Day, we still had not figured out what kind of music to play as our "recessional" -- that is, music to signal that the ceremony was over and to have us promenade back down the aisle as husband-and-wife. We had been wracking our brains and Jamie mentioned that he could queue up a particular Parliament song to just the right moment and have that be the beginning our 'recessional'. This caused us no end of delight and it played brilliantly after our ceremony. For this and for all his excellent work, we'll forever be grateful to Jamie."
Jessica & Corey, September 2014
"We were so lucky to have Jamie DJ our wedding this summer. We could not have asked for a more talented, accommodating, and charming guy to help us ensure our guests had the best time. We met early to discuss vision and plan, and Jamie was 100% on the same page with us every step of the way. Our guests absolutely loved him (my brother might actually use Jamie for his wedding too!), and he went out of his way to make us feel special and taken care of. We love Jamie's choice and mix of music, and his eclectic repertoire meant there was something for everyone in his lineup. Accommodating to both last minute changes, and to playing a wide variety of music depending on the energy of the room, Jamie absolutely blew us away. When you meet someone who is this talented, and someone who you feel comfortable with just chatting personally, you know you've found a winner. If you're looking for a talented DJ and thoughtful person, book Jamie!"
Tim & Rose, June 2014
"Jamie is an amazing DJ and wedding vendor. As a couple on a budget, we considered not hiring a DJ. We are so thankful we did not go that route, and that we found Jamie Grimble.
He is an excellent DJ, extremely responsive, timely, and went the extra mile to make sure that everything was perfect during our wedding ceremony and reception. He followed our suggestions and developed a great playlist for the wedding.
Our guests had an AMAZING time because of Jamie, and everyone -- friends, family, and other vendors -- remarked on how great he was. We have already and will continue to recommend him to others getting married. Jamie is an expert at his craft, and he genuinely cares about doing a great job for the people he works with."
JORDAN & BRITTANY MAY 2014
"Jamie has been an absolute pleasure to work with: he's that ideal combination of cool and professional. When Brittany and I were planning our wedding, Jamie took us from "please play a lot of Prince, oh and these hits from 2005, 2007, and 2009" to a great playlist that all generations loved.
Jamie was also pretty good at keeping us on task during the planning process. Weddings have so many movable parts, but he was great at reminding us to get him track suggestions, contact information, etc. the things I personally am horrible at remembering to do. Britney and I really appreciated all the help we got.
One last thing: if at the end of your wedding Jamie comes up to you and asks, "do you trust me?", do yourself a favor and say yes. You won't regret it."
Tom & Abby, Sept 2013
"Every single person we've spoken to about our big day has singled out the disco as a high point. The spirit, the choice of songs, and the personality behind Jamie's work made our wedding day even more memorable to every one who came. Can't recommend him highly enough".
Alex & Tasha, Oct 2013
"A friend strongly recommended Jamie to us for our wedding. As soon as we met him, we knew we wanted him to be our DJ. He was very friendly, easygoing, and, we found out, knew how to rock a crowd. He worked with the styles of music we wanted and kept his finger on the pulse of the crowd. We got tons of compliments on the music and the experience of the reception. Relatives we never expected to be out on the dance floor were kicking it, having a great time! We can't recommend him enough".
Chris & Tassja, June 2010
"Jamie DJ'd for our wedding reception, and we couldn't recommend him highly enough.The music choices were perfectly balanced, and he kept everyone happy and dancing throughout the whole evening. His contribution was really professional and ended our special day on a high!".
