Services & Style
What types of events are your specialty?
All performers available through JTE are true wedding specialists, experienced with all types of wedding celebrations and protocols. Weddings are our passion and make up over 90% of the business booked through JTE.
How would you define your “style” or approach to providing DJ entertainment?
Our performers’ presentation is polished and understated, marked by artistic mixing and a professional “cheese-free” approach to announcements and microphone work. Many DJs think that it is their job to put on a show and be the center of attention at the reception. We believe firmly that your wedding is your show, and we have no interest in taking the spotlight from you. Your dance floor will be packed, but it will be because the DJ selected just the right songs from your request list and mixed them in just the right sequence – not because he chattered endlessly on the microphone.
I don’t want the music at my wedding to be traditional wedding music. Can you do that?
Of course! We’re not at all attached to tradition – we’re here to incorporate the music you request, and to mix it in a way that will create the kind of wedding you’ve envisioned. Somewhere along the line, the phrase “wedding DJ” became a bad word, synonymous with cheesiness. We couldn’t be any further from that image.
Do you use party props?
No. Our performers do not dress in any type of costume or distribute silly props to the crowd. We also don’t harass your guests into joining us on the dance floor, nor do we teach them how to line dance.
Do you offer additional services, such as ceremony musicians, lighting and photobooths?
Our business model has always centered on the service we know best: fantastic DJ entertainment. We’re happy to provide recorded music and microphones for weddings (and we do, for about 75% of our clients). For photo-booths, also a specialty service deserving of an expert provider, we refer Sitt & Grinn Photo Booths, the area’s leading photo-booth company. You can find their contact information under the Photo Booth menu to the left.
Music Selection & Mixing
How involved are you in helping us to plan our music?
Just as you pay a caterer for their expertise in food, you are paying JTE in large part for our expertise in music. We are more than willing to provide you with a multitude of suggestions based on your preferences, and we’re perfectly comfortable selecting most (or all) of the music if you aren’t interested in doing so. Our extensive knowledge of music enables us to work with your requests and create a mood that reflects your tastes while creating a great atmosphere for all of your guests. In addition, we specialize in addressing music “challenges,” whether combining multicultural musical styles or adapting unique or eclectic music tastes to the formality of a wedding. Both your DJ and our management team are always available to answer questions or assist you in choosing the songs that will reflect your vision of your special day.
What kinds of music are included in your collection?
JTE owns an enormous library of music in all formats, including international music. We update our collection constantly, ensuring that we are able to provide the songs that our clients and their guests are currently enjoying. Furthermore, we work closely with our clients in selecting the music for their event, and will gladly acquire any commercially available song that we don’t already own, at no additional cost. Because of this, we can virtually guarantee that we will be able to accommodate any request.
Booking & Working With Jayden Thomas Entertainment(JTE)
Do you offer different skill levels or “tiers” of DJs?
Absolutely not – any DJ we’re willing to have on our roster will deliver a “JTE Experience” or else we wouldn’t have them on our team. We do not offer the services of lower-quality DJs or inexperienced performers under any circumstances. We want to match you with the DJ on our team who best fits the specific needs of your wedding, but you’ll receive the same high-quality experience no matter which DJ you work with.
What is included in the price for my event?
Our Signature DJ Entertainment Package includes up to 7 hours of FUN and memories, dance floor lighting, professional tour grade equipment, setup, tear down, and a 4 hour dance customized by YOU!
What do you require from my event site?
We require adequate power (120-volt, 15-amp circuit on a grounded outlet) within 35 feet of where the DJ will be set up. We'd also like to have an area 12' x 12' to setup our gear.
When do you arrive to set up for an event?
Our performers always arrive on-site at least an hour and a half prior to the contracted start time of the event, and earlier as necessitated by the setup requirements of the site.
