We highly recommend James! We had him for our wedding and he made everything run so smoothly! Transitions were smooth, he kept the environment lively and fun, and made sure my husband and I were well taken care of. Planning a wedding can be so stressful, but we realized having a good DJ/ MC makes such a big difference. Even before the wedding day, he was very easy to communicate with, answered promptly and was willing to meet with us over zoom to go over questions and the schedule. His documents are well organized and he offers other services too. We also used his photobooth service which was definitely worth it! There was someone else to help run it and it was a hit at the wedding (also so fun to look at the photos after the wedding). James was very professional, kind and organized and we can’t recommend him enough! Thank you James and your team for your hard work and making the wedding day a great day! You went above and beyond and we are so grateful!
My mom and I hired James for my debut (Filipino 18th birthday party) after seeing his work for my other friend's debut. He was so professional and organized and helped us so much through the whole process leading up to my party. The planning process relieved the many stresses my mom and I had with his help as he is great at communicating and getting back. The day of my debut, the program ran smoothly, even my guests were complimenting the flow of it as well as how entertaining he made the party, especially with the games. James is a great two-in-one deal as being our DJ/MC. Without him, my debut would not have been possible nor successful 🙂

James is a phenomenal dj. I hired him for my 40th birthday party and he made the whole night so fun. The entire process was very well organized and clear cut. I would recommend him for any of your dj needs!
We hired James for our wedding and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. During our zoom meeting with him about a week before the wedding, we felt very at ease and excited to work with him because of his chill vibe and it felt like he understood exactly what we were going for. On the day of, he was very professional and was nice about taking song requests from our family/friends as long as they weren't on the do not play list and still seemed to be music that we'd like based on the list we gave him. Would definitely recommend him!
We hired James from AlltheAboveEvents to D.J. and M.C. our October 2022 wedding. From the beginning, James was awesome and open to our ideas and very much a delight to work and communicate with. What makes James special is that he didn’t feel like he was trying to rush us. Other D.J.’s we contacted felt pushy, whereas James felt like he wanted us to find the right person and to make sure we could achieve our musical vision. Once we spoke with him, we knew we didn’t want to speak to anyone else. He was our guy. We even asked him if he can use specific versions of songs that we wanted. In our interview with him, we felt confident James could get our favorite songs, including those from soundtracks, anime, games, and movies that are dear to us. And on our big day, we heard all our favorite songs and special requests coming from our guests. The way he hyped up the audience and amped up the wedding party made our Grand Entrance full of celebratory energy and we felt it continue throughout the rest of the evening. Our guests said they loved our D.J. We were so thankful to have him with us to make our dream wedding come true.
We hired James from All The Above Events to DJ and MC at our wedding and we highly recommend him. He made the entire process of selecting music for our day extremely easy and stress free. He was super friendly, fun and professional, we had the perfect music playing for the entirety of our wedding. Thank you James, you helped make our big day perfect. We would love to work with him again for any future events!
My husband and I can honestly say that James was one of the BEST parts of our wedding! Music was a huge deal as we began our search for our wedding DJ. Having come from a DJ background himself, my husband made it a point to find a DJ who could demonstrate smooth transitions and a confident presence on the mic. From the beginning, we loved that James provided us with samples of his sets/mixes from previous events. Many other DJs had no demos to provide us upon request and we did not feel comfortable blindly trusting someone with such an important part of our day. Once we heard how well James played and could work a crowd as an MC, we knew we had to go with him. One of the best parts about working with James is that he provided a comprehensive Day Of music timeline and allowed us to select a song for all those special moments (i.e. cake cutting song, bouquet toss, bridal party procession, etc.). Not only did this help immensely with our planning, but he played every song that we wanted and more! We told James that while it was important to us to play the songs we wanted, it was equally as important to please the crowd and keep our guests dancing. James did an incredible job keeping our guests engaged, playing all of our selected songs, and even more songs that we loved but hadn't requested. Our guests kept raving about how the music choices were perfect and how fun our wedding was. He also honored our guests's song requests without killing the vibe, which is often difficult to do. We owe a huge part of our amazing day to James and are so grateful that we found him!
Can't thank James enough for creating such an amazing environment during my wedding. If you have no idea where/how to start, he makes it straightforward and easy. If you have an idea, he makes it happen. Always reachable as well! Surprisingly during my wedding, I had friends, family, and even venue managers recognize James from previous weddings that they had attended. They all had their own stories of how James was a joy to work with, or how he made the events so exciting. This man is not just some random Google search, he's known in many communities to be the best of the best. If he is already booked for the wedding day you had in mind, then move your day to make it work!
I am extremely pleased to have James at our wedding. He was very professional, courteous, organized, and detail oriented throughout the process. - Before the wedding: James has been very responsive with our coordinations over email. He provided excel sheets that helped keep track of schedule, our requested songs for the reception, and other various details we would not have thought about if we were to do this on our own. He was also very flexible and easy to work with when introduced to our wedding coordinator as well. - Ceremony: James was detailed when it came to logistics and it is evident he is very experienced at hosting these events. The flow of the ceremony was very smooth. One additional thing I appreciated is that the sound system/speakers he provided were also high quality making it easy to hear everything clearly for our outdoor ceremony. - Cocktail Hour/Dinner: James had ensured the toasts ran smoothly as well. Little things like reminding each speaker to bring a glass really demonstrates his experience doing events like this. - Reception: James definitely knew how to read the crowd and played a fantastic mix of songs throughout the night. We enjoyed the night very much from his services as a DJ. If I had to do this all over again I would not hesitate to hire James again. He did a fantastic job!

While planning our wedding one thing that was important to us was a good DJ that would get people on the dance floor as I love to dance and so do our family and friends. From the beginning when we first reached out to James, he has been professional, friendly, and responsive. James from All the Above Events did an amazing job as a MC & DJ! He kept everyone on the dance floor all night long. All our guests talk about how amazing and fun our wedding was and a big reason for that was because of James! Thank you for making our wedding day memorable!
