I am a Northeast Ohio based DJ with a master's degree in communication. During the week, I teach public speaking at Kent State University, and on the weekends, I DJ weddings and other special events. Plus, I now offer greenscreen photo booths and LED uplighting!
As a host, I have a great skill set, and I always work hard to make sure any event I am a part of is a success.
Absolutely amazing DJ! So much fun and picked spectacular music for the mood of the wedding! Everyone should hire this awesome guy for your wedding!
Thanks DJ James for making our reception spectacular. You kept our guests dancing and truly entertained. I personally appreciated the interest and detail you put in to making sure our event was everything we requested and more! I will highly recommend you! Signed, a very happy Bride and Groom!
DJ James Hayes showed up when he said he would (an hour and half prior to the estimated start time). I could tell he was professional right off the bat. The ceremony had to change from outdoors to indoors due to weather and he was able to react and have his systems set up prior to the ceremony starting. He played all the music we requested and made sure there were fun songs for all ages. His music got a lot of people to the dance floor which made the wedding enjoyable and not boring. If you have any event I recommend DJ James Hayes for his professional and fun experience he provided and on top of that his price could not be beat!!
Mr. James Hayes,
Melissa and I wanted to thank you again for the DJ services you provided us at our wedding. We believe it was very professional. You were definitely resilient and overcame the obstacles from the rainy weather to give us a high quality experience. You were able to provide us with all of our requests which helped make our wedding an unforgettable day. We appreciate the great music and help you provided us.
Price Range: $500-$1100
Gig Length: 120 - 600 minutes
What to Expect
My basic services include a PA system (big speakers), microphones, and LED dance lights.
I have the capability to provide several add-on services including karaoke, LED uplighting, and my greenscreen photobooth.
Beyond equipment, I offer my services as a DJ and MC with five years of professional experience DJ'ing hundreds of events. Ahead of the big day, I work with you to plan out the entertainment and music for the evening. I charge a flat rate, so you have me for the whole day. If you need me to set up early, provide music for a wedding ceremony, or cocktail hour it is no trouble nor added expense.
If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me I would be happy to answer them.
My career as a DJ started when my high school marching band couldn't afford a DJ. I stepped in to DJ it myself and I had so much fun I have been playing music ever since! I love to make people happy through music and to entertain.
