Whether it’s DJ’ing, MC’ing, or lighting, CJ can do it all. He is the consummate professional and goes above and beyond for his clients. Wedding, birthday party, after party, etc., you won’t regret making CJ the DJ part of your event. My wife and I were couldn’t be more pleased with how epic he made our wedding after party. Bottom line: CJ the DJ knows what he’s doing.

My husband and I booked CJ for our wedding after party. We booked a band for the reception itself but wanted to have more fun with our friends at the after party and decided that a DJ was the best way to go. Our venue offered to provide us their “house DJ” but I’ve been to other shows and events that used CJ and I knew that I had to book him. I recommended him to two of my friends for their weddings earlier this year and they loved him just as much as I did.
It’s been 3 weeks since our wedding and all of our friends and family are STILL talking about the after party! CJ was simply awesome. Once we booked him he was prompt with his emails and was patient when we were explaining the type of music we wanted. Wedding planning can be a bit of a whirlwind. For those of you know who have been through it, you already know that “whirlwind” is a bit of an understatement. It’s important that you choose vendors that are reliable, patient, affordable and simply AMAZING. CJ was one of the best vendors that I got to work with during the whole process. Aside from being friendly and responsive, he was genuinely excited not only for Eric and me, but excited to be part of our wedding!
We pretty much gave him free reign on whatever he wanted to play, with a couple of “must-play” songs that we knew our friends would rock out to. People that worked at the venue later told me that our after party room was literally shaking and they had to take a peek at what was going on inside. CJ got the ENTIRE room dancing/jumping! The only reason why anyone was sitting was to catch their breath for a minute and then they were back on the dance floor. He has a great collection of music that anyone and everyone will dance to.
Whether you’re getting married or throwing a party, do yourself a favor and book CJ right away. I promise you will not regret it- he will make your event the talk of the town and he does it all with a smile on his face 😉

CJ was a pleasure to work with. He is very organized and goes out of his way to make sure everyone is on the same page during the planning process. We had him MC and DJ for our wedding and it went perfectly. Thanks again CJ!

CJ deejayed our wedding on September 29th at Christopher’s in New Brunswick. I first heard of CJ through his music. I was at a friend’s party and another friend’s wedding. If CJ is deejaying, be prepared to get your dance on the whole time! CJ is very professional and really listens to his clients. At our first meeting, we gave him songs that we wanted to hear and we exchanged more ideas through emails.
Our wedding reception went well smoothly, and so many people complimented us on the music. He has a great music library and is a genuinely good guy/DJ. He knows his stuff. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!
-Kimberly C. (Posted on Yelp on November 1, 2012)
CJ was the dj for my wedding and he did an amazing job! He was totally professional and really did his best to understand what we were trying to do from a musical standpoint. He even put up with my weekly emails with song requests.
The wedding reception went so well that I started hearing compliments about the dj after the first 30 minutes. His library music runs very deep and even my Mom was impressed and gave him her own tip separate from us. A good guy and a good DJ at a great price!
-Noah P. (Posted on Yelp on October 28, 2012)
For our wedding, we were looking for a DJ that could keep the dance floor filled while keeping the overall vibe lively. CJ did just that. We gave him the challenge of getting the groom’s dad (who never dances) onto the dance floor. It wasn’t even halfway through the reception and he was dancing. CJ really knows how to pace the music to the mood of the room (slower music when it’s time to sit and eat, moderate to get people on the dance floor, party vibe when it’s ready to be amped up). I really appreciated the friendly email reminders CJ had when it came to preparing for the upcoming event. He made sure to sit down with us and get a feel for our personalities, general music interests and our idea of the ideal vibe of the reception. It was nice to go into the wedding fully trusting our reception MC and music. On the day, CJ showed up early to prepare and was patient with dealing with the last minute changes from our venue. It rained on our wedding day so the reception space turned into the ceremony space – delaying his setup time. We highly recommend CJ to anyone. (A bunch of our friends actually couldn’t stop talking about how much fun they had at the wedding since the music was right on point.)
-Maria C. (Posted on Yelp on October 24, 2012)
CJ deejayed our wedding this past July and exceeded our expectations. From start to finish he made the process very easy for us. From selecting the right music and relighting our venue to announcing the wedding party and keeping people on their feet, everything went off without a hitch.
When we had to make last minute changes at the reception, he was able to accommodate all of our requests – an all-around professional!
-Evan C. (Posted on Yelp on October 19, 2012)
We used CJ for our wedding reception in Philadelphia in June 2012, and he was first-class, all the way. CJ was professional and prompt in all of our interactions and communications. Even our reception manager was impressed when CJ made a special trip over from out-of-town just to do a walk-through a week before the event.
During the reception he was a consummate professional, giving us everything we had asked for and more, while keeping our guests shaking it on the dance floor.
You can tell CJ really enjoys his job, because it comes through in excellent service he provides. I highly recommend CJ, and would love to use his services again!
-Chris P. (Posted on Yelp on October 17, 2012)
We booked CJ the DJ for our wedding on 7-13-2012 and he was extremely professional and fun to work with. From the beginning stages of planning and organizing to the day of set up and break down, he was punctual and reliable. We had specific ideas about what would be played at the wedding, but let concrete ideas about what we wanted him to play throughout the cocktail hour and reception. He exceeded our expectations on music choices, flowed from one part of the day into the other, and our guest have not stopped talking about how great the music was. The music day of was well blended and transitioned from one track to another without pause of breaks! We would recommend him for any event you are looking to throw! Definitely visit his website to listen to his mixes and get a small taste of his talent.
-Justin N. (Posted on Yelp on August 27, 2012)
CJ is a super professional DJ who spins the hits that make people wanna dance. If you want a DJ who knows his stuff and is very polite and punctual then this is the guy for you. I would recommend CJ to anyone. He really knows his stuff.
-Leonard L. (Posted on Yelp on July 23, 2012)
Phenomenal DJ! During the planning process, he was so responsive and easy to work with. Everyone at my baby shower raved about the awesome song selection and how personable our DJ was. While the food was being served, he totally surprised me by playing some of my favorite throwbacks! He really made my baby shower such a memorable day….Everyone attending had an amazing time!
-Christina V. (Posted on Yelp on June 19, 2012)
We were also lucky enough to have CJ as our wedding DJ/MC in May. When we started looking for entertainment for our wedding, we wanted someone special because we knew that the entire tone of the night would be set by the MC. We did a lot of research and actually made an effort to go see several DJs and bands. We contacted CJ about the possibility of being our DJ and from that initial conversation we knew he would be a pleasure to work with. He arranged for us to come out and see him perform. After a night of hearing him perform, we were very impressed and thought he would be a perfect fit for our wedding. Over the course of the planning process CJ was very responsive and helpful; in fact, with our input he designed a custom song for our introductions. Our wedding venue was not the typical venue; it was indoor/outdoor in an old house with several small rooms and a large tent. We planed on having CJ provide amplification for the outdoor ceremony and for our harpist and soloist, in addition to providing music/amplification for the rest of the night. Given the atypical setup, CJ decided to come to the venue and plan the day several weeks before the ceremony to ensure everything went smoothly. The day of the ceremony, CJ was able to deal with some last minute changes and everything went perfectly. After the ceremony, CJ had everything arranged for our introductions. CJ introduced everyone very professionally (this was important to us, as we did not want to be announced as if we were entering a boxing arena). Over the course of the night, CJ set the mood perfectly, everything from soft background music for dinner to upbeat dancing at the end of the night. Many of our guests commented on how great CJ was, and we were happy that he was able to make all of our special moments (first dance, etc.) so special. We would highly recommend CJ to any couple looking for their wedding MC/entertainment.
-Amy F. (Posted on Yelp on June 8, 2012. Married on May 26, 2012)
Great job CJ! Thanks again for spinning at my daughter’s baptism reception. The music was great and the guests were entertained! Good times!
-Mark C. (Posted on Yelp on June 8, 2012)
After hearing CJ at our friends’ wedding in Philadelphia, we hired him immediately to DJ our own wedding 6 months later. At both events he was well organized, professional, and attentive to the guests. He has the incredible ability to keep the dance floor full, despite our wedding not being full of fantastic dancers.
CJ understands how to shorten and length songs based on the crowd’s response. He also makes an incredible MC, introducing our bridal party, getting attention for a quiet toast, and not becoming the center of attention himself.
We HIGHLY recommend CJ.
-Laura R. (Posted on Yelp on May 29, 2012. Married on May 19, 2012)
I’m so happy I found CJ!!! My son’s 1st birthday was this past weekend and CJ really got the party going…and going….and going. He was so great to work with…easy-going, friendly and professional. He’s a great DJ; he knew what music to play to cater to such a diverse crowd of children, teens, adults and even my 93 year old lola (grandma) who loved the music and energy. I’ll be sure to call CJ everytime I host a party. Thanks so much.
-Melanie T. (Posted on Yelp on May 14, 2012)
CJ did an excellent job with my Son’s communion this past weekend. He was extremely professional and courteous. He had great games and entertainment for the kids as well as the adults. The party was a success and I can honestly say it was due to CJ. We will use him again for my daughter’s party next year..
-James S. (Posted on Yelp on May 10, 2012)
CJ the DJ!!! One word: Awesome!
We had a circus themed 1st birthday party and CJ had the place hopping!
I basically told him that he had artistic license to play whatever he felt the crowd wanted, and he truly delivered. I know the worst customer is the indecisive one, and that was me, but CJ was patient and kept in touch by email, phone and text before the contract was signed, after, and before the party to finalize!
I even convinced him to join us line dancing!!! (I hope that wasn’t supposed to be a secret!)
Thanks for a very memorable first bday for our daughter!
-Ranela D. (Posted on Yelp on May 2, 2012)
I was lucky enough to work with CJ on two events. I hired him for a end of the summer white party (all guests dress in the color white) where he happily showed up in uniform in his whites. He then also hired me as a dance host for a wedding he worked. He definitely had the crowd going – the floor was never empty! I had to take breaks, but the guests were nonstop – thanks to CJ!
He is always so responsive – the thing I appreciate most. A few hours won’t go buy without him responding to your question, e-mail, or phone call. He also carries himself very diplomatically, but in a low-key kind of way. He is so down to earth & relaxed, but professional at the same time. He also breaks the stigma that sometimes DJ’s don’t smile/look happy (it’s true, but only sometimes!). He is open to suggestions, happy to collaborate, and a great team player. Any event would be lucky to have him.
-Carla C. (Posted on Yelp on April 6, 2012)
When my folks wanted to do a reception for their renewal of vows ceremony on 12-11-11, the first person to come to mind was CJ…besides knowing him for a long time, now he is someone you can trust….he will work hard and try and do his utmost best for you and your event to make sure it goes right…he works with you and makes sure you get the results you want!!!!……he is calm and level headed and very respectful….key things that people seem to not remember when people hire someone especially for an event….whether big or small the event CJ will do his best to make sure everyone leaves tired from dancing and wanting the party not to end!!!….he did a great job and not just from my point of view but from my folks and my family!!!!!…..I am proud to call him friend and recommend CJ the DJ Entertainment to anyone……if you need someone to provide the right kind of beats for your event…… CJ is your DJ!!!!….
-Ron D. (Posted on Yelp on January 11, 2012)
I’ve known CJ for a very long time and have seen him spin at restaurants, bars, clubs, family parties, etc. I’ve always had a really good time, so I invited him to DJ at my Company Holiday Party in New York City for about 250+ guests. Not only was our contract/negotiation process seamless, CJ was very flexible and accommodating to our party needs. He was always very responsive if we had any questions and made sure to gather as much information as possible beforehand so that he could prepare for our employees’ variety of musical tastes and the evening’s mood. He showed up on time as promised and his set up was clean & professional. He didn’t have a problem taking requests either. Because everyone was having such a good time on the dance floor, our executives decided to extend the party an additional hour! The employees raved that it had been our best holiday party to date. His range in music, his professionalism, and his ability to pump up the party at the right moment are just some of the reasons I would recommend CJ for any party.
-Laura T. (Posted on Yelp on January 4, 2012)
I strongly believe that good DJ and music is a light of the party . CJ did an excelent job that we are very pleased. He extremely did an awesome work from program planning, lights, selection of song dance and introduction of guest . He perfectly blended it very well. No dull moment at all. Planning a huge wedding in 3 months was very stressful but CJ helped me everything about the music from first dance song with editing and all the selection of music. He also provided us a dance instructor who named “Carla” who also did a good job that make all my guest dance. My wedding is a huge success everyone had a blast and CJ pulled this off. Again thank you very very very much . You’re the best!
-Tricia D. (Posted on WeddingWire), Married on December 10, 2011
Picking a wedding DJ is not easy. You don’t want somebody who hogs the mic, plays crappy music, or adds drama to what is already a stressful event to plan. My wife and I just had our wedding outside Philly, and wanted a DJ who would just play music with little interruptions. CJ was simply fantastic – professional, courteous, responsive, and excellent at his trade. I would recommend him highly for anyone’s wedding. I got several comments afterward complimenting the DJ for his music. He arrived several hours early and even offered use of his second set of speakers (even though he was only slated to DJ the reception, not the ceremony). He was never bothersome but did ask me about a few requests, which I appreciated. I can’t recommend CJ enough to would-be wedding parties.
-Lionel B. (Posted on Yelp), Married on November 12, 2011
I hired CJ the DJ for our company’s 10 Year Anniversary, which we celebrated a couple of weeks ago. We are a young gaming company located in Manhattan and wanted someone fun, professional, and who could easily read the crowd. Let me just say, he did just that and more! He was so easy to work with and made the music entertainment factor of my event planning process seamless. Thank you CJ the DJ and hope to work with you again!
-Valerie P. (Posted on Yelp on November 14, 2011)
Where to start??? CJ the DJ rocked the house. I hired CJ for my daughters Quinceañera and he had the crowd moving the whole night. He had music for all latin, hip hop, top 20 and everything in between. From the time we met him it was so easy to deal with him. He is a true professional. If you want to have a great time in your next event please do yourself a favor and hire CJ. You will not regret it!!!! Thanks again CJ!!!
-Raul C. (Posted on Yelp on November 15, 2011)
CJ was amazing! We just had our wedding yesterday and we were so happy that we decided to leave a review today. CJ did everything we asked of him perfectly, and he alleviated all of our stress related to entertainment so that we could concentrate on having fun with our friends. He actually got over 90% of our guests dancing the entire time, including my father, who I’ve never actually seen dance before! He was receptive to our requests, did not play anything off of the “do not play list”, and did a great job of feeling how the room was doing. All our guests loved CJ. As more proof of how amazing he was, my husband forgot to bring his final payment to the wedding because he left his wallet in the hotel room, and CJ told us, “Don’t worry, this is your wedding day, enjoy it”. We dropped the check in the mail BTW CJ! Thanks so much for making our day so wonderful and memorable and making our guests so happy!
-Anne B. & Dave R. (Posted on WeddingWire), Married on October 22, 2011
CJ the DJ supplied the music for a fundraiser my organization put together last summer. He was highly recommended to me by a colleague in another non-profit organization. From the start, I was impressed with his professionalism. During the process, he was attentive, understanding of our needs, and prompt with his responses. The evening of the event, he showed up early with all his equipment. During the fundraiser, he adjusted the music selection for the demographic of our folks (ranging from 20s-60s), who went crazy over his picks. In short, he was awesome!
-Cheska T. (Posted on Yelp on August 25, 2011)
CJ the DJ deejayed my son’s 1st birthday this past month. He was very professional and communicated often with my wife before the party date regarding any special request and scheduling. At the party, he played appropriate music for both children and adults. He catered to all music request and had all the music we asked for. He worked well with another entertainment vendor we hired. He definitely pumped up the guest and was very easy to work with.
-Derrick G. (Posted on Yelp on July 24, 2011)
In may of 2010, we had the pleasure of using CJ the DJ as our wedding DJ. He was very professional and accommodating. He kept in touch with us throughout the planning process and made sure that he had all of the songs we wanted played. At the reception, he played all of the music we requested and made sure all guest, children, young adults, and adults were on the dance floor with a variety of appropriate music. He definitely kept the energy of the party at a high level and we could not have been happier with our decision to use him. I will definitely use him for my son’s 1st birthday in September and will always recommend him to friends and family who are looking for a dj for any occassion.
-Rammier D. (Posted on Yelp on July 24, 2011)
I am very pleased with CJ’s services as my DJ for my wedding in March 2011. I planned my wedding in 3 months due to a baby on the way and although I dealt with many stresses, I am happy to say that I had not a thing to worry about with my DJ services because of how responsive, flexible,and enthusiastic CJ was. CJ provided me with a consultation at my convenience, where he really understood what vibe it was that I was looking for. In a short amount of time, he worked with me to customize my song list, created customized songs for me to use at my wedding, and gave me a lot of helpful suggestions.
During the wedding, he was enthusiastic and most importantly, he knew what appropriate music to play for my wedding which had guests ranging from ages 4-70 and EVERYONE was dancing!
Once again, I highly recommend CJ to DJ any events!!
-Debbie P. (Posted on WeddingWire), Married on March 13, 2011
CJ was our DJ for a large Gala event that I planned. He was wonderful with communication about what we were looking for and very understanding with our constraints. CJ checked out our event space in order to properly plan for the event (number of speakers, etc.). He was at the event promptly and played exactly what we were looking for, and even picked out cool (not corny) favors to hand out. He could not have been better! Thanks CJ!
-Alison G. (Posted on Yelp on May 14, 2011)
We had a blast thanks to CJ who was our DJ for my husband’s 40th Throwback birthday party! Your selection of music along with what we asked you to play made the whole night a fun and unforgettable night. From Spanish to Reggae to HipHop music from the 80’s to current was a blast. The favors you handed out went with the theme and your professionalism made it an easy event to plan. Thank you CJ and can’t wait to have you DJ at our future parties!
-Janet L. (Posted on Yelp on May 14, 2011)
CJ the DJ was my DJ for my sweet sixteen and for my younger sister’s sweet sixteen. He was easy to meet with and played all the songs that I had asked for and he played songs that my friends and I loved and the same goes for my sister’s party. He engages the crowd and was very professional. CJ the DJ made our lives easier leading up to the party and he helped make my night and my sister’s night exceptional.
-Meghan P. (Posted on Yelp on May 15, 2011)
CJ is a consummate professional: courteous, detail-oriented, thorough and punctual. Weeks before the wedding we had a consultation to get an idea of our tastes and the musical direction we wanted. He also accommodated our last minute requests. Our reception was partial seating for 110 guests whose ages ranged from late 70s to one and half years old so we wanted the energy level upbeat. CJ exceeded our expectations when he seamlessly transitioned from soul and r&b to songs that the baby boomers rocked out to (Little Richard, Chubby Checker). Half a year later our guests still talk about how much fun they had!
-Jennifer R. (Posted on WeddingWire), Married on October 16, 2010
We had our wedding in September our ceremony was outside in the garden. I was very nervous about the set up& how the flow would be (cables, speakers, etc.) but CJ exceeded our exceptions. His placements of all the speakers made the music flow and not scattered away you couldn’t tell where the cables were & the microphones. My husband and I have very different families culturally and age wise but he managed to keep all 125 guests dancing & entertained with his amazing music selections & up beat personality. You know how we brides can be but CJ was always gracious and on point always answered my calls, my endless emails & always answered my demands i mean questions (little bride humor). Personally i believe the music & entertainment is what makes the reception memorable & to this day everyone still talks about our wedding and how much fun they had. CJ is awesome!!
-Crystal G. (Posted on WeddingWire), Married on September 26, 2010
We had an outdoor wedding at a winery where the ceremony was in one area and the reception was in another and CJ had to juggle both the speakers/mic’s for the ceremony and have the reception all cued-up. The whole thing went without a hitch! I do not know of many weddings where you look at the reception and the dance floor is overflowing into the seating areas, CJ kept it going!
Overall, CJ was really flexible with awesome suggestions….he even helped us pick our first dance song! He also was great to work with on timing for introductions, how to mix the songs and keep the flow.
One highlight was the morning of our wedding our little niece sent us a youtube video of her playing Canon in D on the piano, we loved it so much we wanted to include it in our wedding. We sent the youtube link over to CJ and asked if he could make this our recession music and he was able to pull it all together for the ceremony.
Cannot say enough good things about CJ!
-Jennilee C. (Posted on WeddingWire), Married on September 25, 2010
I used CJ the DJ for my husband’s 30th birthday party. He was extremely thorough, friendly & professional! He played a great mix of music & kept the crowd engaged all night. Everybody had a great time – from our 2 year old nephew to my 85 year old Grandpa! I can’t recommend him enough – can’t wait for our next party to use CJ the DJ again!!
