Jamaal Botticelli

DJ

Just a few reviews...

DJ Jamaal is extremely professional, flexible, and will make sure your special day runs smoothly. He was able to provide music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception without a hitch. DJ Jamaal worked with us to add personalized music to our ceremony including equipment for performers. He does an excellent job introducing the bridal party, speeches, and any other special events to keep the reception right on time. DJ Jamaal is also really laid back, so he will roll with any last minutes changes that come about.  - Mary

Jamaal was great! We had a couple of last minute changes and had rearranged some things and he was right on top of it and kept up with all of it! We had sent him our list of songs and just told him to go from cocktail/dinner music and gradually move into dance songs and all of the transitions were great. The dance floor was packed all night long! I cannot recommend him enough. Thanks Jamaal for a fun night! - Jeanine

Jamaal was a PHENOMENAL DJ at our wedding. If you hire Jamaal, you will have all your DJ dreams come true, have zero headaches, feel confident that when you hire him, he will follow through on every detail no matter how small.
 

Summary:  Jamaal was professional, timely, respectful, and good with any change that arose even on the wedding day - The entire process with him was flawless. - songs had completely smooth transitions - songs we requested were played, songs we did not want played were not played. - Jamaal was flexible and able to make all our DJ dreams come true. Jamaal was timely with everything, and when my husband and I fell behind on our timeline, or forgot anything, Jamaal was on point for reminding us of anything we forgot and very understanding of how hectic wedding prep can be. He really made this experience stress-free and showed us that when we hired him to do the job, he did so with professionalism, no hesitation, complete knowledge of his practice, and left our guests just raving about how great our DJ was. Jamaal was the perfect DJ for us because when we sent him our list of songs we preferred to be played, we told him to just consider those but that he was the master and judgment was left to him. Not only did Jamaal play almost all the songs on our extensive list, AND keep our two "do not play songs" from getting played, but also the transitions between songs were FLAWLESS! Even when music genres did not go together, incredibly, the flow from one song to the next was smooth and enjoyable! During the wedding Jamaal was also a big help in keeping the wedding timeline going. As bride and groom, we were so busy talking with guests and dancing, that sometimes we forgot when the next thing needed to happen (first dance, cake cutting) but Jamaal was there to respectfully remind us and check in once or twice to make sure things ran smoothly and that everything was going as we liked. As the MC, Jamaal was not overpowering (not always on the mic and taking over the wedding, but not non-existent). Jamaal was flexible with my husband and I when we couldn't meet in person the week before the wedding to go over final details with him, so instead we did a conference call. Jamaal got all the details correctly, going over how everyone's names were pronounced for the bridal party entry to the reception, going over the timeline, verifying which songs to play, and during the wedding was able to shorten the song for my husband's and my first dance with a smooth fade out (without it being obvious we didn't want to dance to the whole song. We have a lot of friends getting married in these next couple years and we will most definitely be recommending Jamaal to all of them! - Autumn
