I do not even know where to begin! Jay was AMAZING. Kept the crowd going the entire time. I was dancing while eating! I would use jay again in a heart beat. It was so nice working with someone who took the stress off and just knew what music to play off the vibe of the people. I was more taken back how he incorporated polish music with our wedding too. Thank you SO much for a wild night!!
Benson & Emily
We were referred to DJ Cote for our wedding. From the start he was polite professional and easy going. He listened to our preferences and made great suggestions. On the day he was prompt and able to keep the event moving from ceremony to party. He definitely was the best choice and we are happy he was our DJ on our special day! 100% class...thanks Jay! Emily & Benson

We used Jay for our Jack & Jill and our wedding. Not only was he very easy to communicate with, he also made everything super easy. We had tons of compliments at both events about how fantastic our DJ was. We would highly recommend, in fact, a family member of our is going to be using Jay for her upcoming events. A+++++ Thank you again Jay!!!
Jason DJed our 12/09/2017 wedding reception and we are SO happy we chose him to DJ! Despite a large snowstorm on our wedding day he was there early and ready to go. He was responsive and communicative, and flexible when things were changed last minute. He was consistently professional and because he was so on top of things I knew that I didn't have to worry. He made sure to understand our preferences for the music during different parts of the night and incorporated all of the specific songs we requested. On top of his ease to work with, he had everyone dancing all night! He played music that kept everyone's energy up, and there were no awkward lulls. He also did a phenomenal job when he was speaking (during the introductions, the cake cutting, etc etc) and kept everyone engaged. His direction was very natural and never felt forced or awkward (which always makes me cringe when I've been to other weddings with less confident or professional DJs). He is an experienced entertainer and DJ and it shows in the ease with which he can keep a room with 250 people energized all night! I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a DJ!!

Our wedding day would not have been complete without DJ Jay!! Jay was an absolute pleasure working with & he went above and beyond to make anything happen for us on our special day! Even when we threw out of the box ideas for Jay, he was always supportive and executed everything we were looking for! DJ Jay is a genuine hard worker who places all his talents & efforts into making sure you & your guests are pleased & entertained at all times through the evening. He knows how to ensure your wedding is an amazing time! My husband and I were grateful to have well over 50 people still on the dance floor past midnight on our wedding night & we owe that to DJ Jay for doing what he does best!!! THANK YOU for an AMAZING day to remember !! - Mike & Stefanie
DJ Jay was the DJ at my October 12, 2018 wedding and he was a fantastic DJ to work with! He was very informative about all of our questions from the moment we met him. He absolutely exceeded our expectations for our wedding day! Not only was he professional, friendly and enthusiastic, but he was very accommodating to our needs and wants during the planning process. He definitely made the planning process easy and was always very responsive to my texts/calls and when we couldn't think of specific songs he gave us great ideas He also ensured that he knew how to say the names of parents, grandparents and the wedding party for the introductions as well by having us spell them phonetically. My husband and I had specific songs we wanted played during our dinner as well as throughout the night, and not only did he play what we wanted but he played so many more amazing songs. DJ Jay had everyone on the dance floor dancing the night away! He even let us use the microphone and we were all singing along to the songs! We had an absolute blast at our wedding and we couldn't thank DJ Jay enough for making it an awesome day! I absolutely recommend DJ Jay Entertainment & Lighting Experience for any wedding or event because he makes it that much more memorable by keeping the dance floor busy the whole night!! :)
DJ Jay was the BEST! He was incredibly detailed oriented and was sure to pronounce everyone's name correctly (I hate when you go to a wedding and the DJ or band doesn't make the effort to pronounce the names the right way)! I was worried that the party wouldn't get going at our venue due to a decibel rule, but he kept it going all night. He was fantastic and helped everything go smoothly and his lights made the dance floor that much more fun!
Jay was absolutely awesome at our wedding! He was great during the whole planning process and answered any questions we had. We were a bit picky about music and we added a ton of songs we wanted to hear throughout the night. We were able to specify what songs we wanted during dinner and for when it was time to party! Jay was receptive to all of it and everyone loved the music, he had the whole place dancing! He also provided the uplighting for the inside of our venue and worked with our live musician to make sure the sound was perfect during our ceremony and cocktail hour. We definitely recommend using DJ Jay Entertainment & Lighting Experience for your wedding or other events!
Karina Scavo 5/19/2017
DJ was amazing! Super easy to talk to and flexible before the wedding. Countless people throughout the wedding and after commented on how awesome the DJ was. Great song selection throughout the whole night. Venue was known for having a sound restriction but the DJ set the equipment and music so that no one even noticed. I would definitely recommend DJ Jay to anyone!
Kayla Levesque 3/12/2017
Jay and I were brought together under unforeseen circumstances. Thank goodness we were because it was met to be! Jay was outstanding, he understood that the music at my wedding was one of the most important things to me that day. Jay did such a great job, he more than made my music and lighting dreams come true! All of my guests were, and still are, raving at his wonderful work. He is so easy to contact and he responds quickly and efficiently. He is respectful, down to earth and an all around fun, family guy who always has a smile on. Thank you DJ Jay!!
Joshua Costa 5/1/2016
We were first referred to DJ Jay by CT National Golf Club. We were not disappointed. If you are looking for a DJ that is professional, fun, and creative then Jason Cote is your guy!
Alisia Hollister said: Wedding 9/22/16
We feel so lucky to have had Jay DJ our wedding in September. From the first day of working with him we knew we had made the right decision. He was so attentive to every detail, making sure he understood our vision. He even helped me to find the perfect song for our first dance! From the lighting, perfect music picks, and fun atmosphere that Jay provided, we are still getting compliments about the night. We had so much fun planning the night and then dancing the night away. He even took an amazing video of our choreographed bridesmaid dance for me! If you are lucky enough to have Jay be available for your night, you will not be disappointed!!
Jessica LS Kimatu said: Wedding October 15, 2016
Where do I start? From the first meeting with DJ Jay it was very personable yet professional. He made my husband and I very comfortable and helped us through the entire process. He is a fantastic individual and handeled every detail we threw at him with perfection and grace. He is very upbeat and made our needs/wishes happen. We had a diverse group at our wedding of close family and friends and a blend of different cultures but everyone loved the music and the atmosphere he helped to provide. He answered all of our questions promptly and had helpful advice to guide us in the right direction. We danced the night away and couldn't be happier with his services. The dj you hire is responsible for the flow of your day and our day went very smooth and without a glitch because of him.. I highly recommend him for any event and we will use him again in the future. Thank you D.J. Jay Cote!!!

Thank you so much Dj Jay for making our Jack & Jill and our wedding so much fun! We felt that you really tapped in to who we are and kept everyone dancing and having a fabulous time. We got so many comments from our friends about how great you were and how much fun they had. The Jack and Jill was a great prelude to the wedding- they couldn't wait! Thank you again for making our special day so memorable!!
Jessica Natale said: Wedding Sept 9, 2016
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to DJ Jay Cote for the most amazing night of my life!!! Throughout the whole wedding process and planning he was there every step of the way, extremely professional and prompt to get back with any questions I had. The day of the wedding everything ran smoothly and calmly and without any hitches. He interacted with other vendors incredibly and made our special day fun and memorable. He had all the songs we wanted and was able to sneak in last second requests we had. We couldn't have been happier with his service and we highly recommend him for any event! Thanks again for a magical night Jay xoxo

Finding a DJ that can play music that everyone likes is really hard, however, DJ Jay did just that! DJ Jay is truly talented and is also very professional, which is everything a Bride and Groom would want for their special day! Weeks before the wedding he met with us to discuss song choices, traditions, name pronunciations for bridal party, and more! From the ceremony to the reception the schedule went so smoothly and the uplighting was the perfect touch to the venue. During the reception Jay had a huge crowd that never left the dance floor. He was very good at reading the crowd and played songs to keep everyone out on the floor! During the reception and even days after our wedding numerous guests commented on how "awesome" and "great" the DJ was! We honestly cannot say enough good things about him, and we would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ. Jay, thank you again for making our wedding so special and fun!

DJ Jay was awesome to work with and made our wedding so much less stressful and run so much smoother, we had a lot of good reviews from our guests on the music he played all night, he is by far the best DJ anywhere around, our wedding coordinator had to work on the bar the night of our wedding at the restaurant where we had our reception at, we never once worried because we knew DJ Jay would take care of the timing of everything and make sure our night was perfect and he did we can't thank him enough, we would highly recommend him for any event!!!!
Kimberly Ross said: Sept 18, 2015
Dj Jay was awesome! Thank you so much for providing us with the entertainment we asked for and keeping the dance floor going all night, I wanted to keep dancing! The up-lighting was perfect as well. All of our guests commented on how good he was and enjoyed the music choices. I have already recommended Jay to many bride friends of mine! Thank you so much for helping us with such an important day!

I couldnt imagine our day without him!! Our guests had so much fun, we danced all night long!! He went out of his way to make us happy from getting me food haha to letting my daughter pick some fun music.........Thank you Jay for making our day perfect!!!!!!!
Jenna Cacciola said: Aug 13, 2015
Jay DJ'ed my wedding on August 8, 2015, and our guests had a blast! Jay is laid back, but also very organized at the same time. He answers any and all questions myself and my husband had, worked to ensure everything was to our liking, and helped us create a fabulous wedding reception. We cannot thank you enough, Jay, for helping to make our wedding day a great one!
Kate & Matt said: Aug 2, 2015
Jason, thanks so much for all that you did at our Jack & Jill! Not I u were you a great DJ, but you also managed the entire night! You really came through for us, and we liked your positive attitude and professional service. We will give your name out as a recommended DJ to anyone that asks, and we hope to get a chance to see you in action again! Thanks again!
Cindy Burns said: July 27, 2015

Meghan Goshea said: July 25th, 2015
DJ Jay made my party so much fun! He played a variety of music and did everything possible to make sure I was 100% satisfied. He sang karoake with us and if he didnt have a song you wanted he bought it right on the spot! Excellent service and well prepared DJ. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ!
Sarah and Matt Simard said: November 15th, 2014
DJ Jay Cote was the DJ for our Jack and Jill in June 2014 and wedding on October 18, 2014! He was professional, personable and very easy to get ahold of! He welcomed questions I had, through text or email. He even arranged uplighting which everyone loved. We felt his fee was very reasonable, for the quality service he provides!! On the day of, he was very calm, cool and collected. We truly lucked out with having such an amazing DJ. He exceeded our expectations in every way. Thank you so much Jay!

We had the pleasure of hiring Jay as our wedding DJ on Sept 19th, 2014 and I cant say enough good things about him!! Jay was very friendly, laid back and organized. He listened to what we wanted and gave us a great time!! Jay knows how to cater to specific groups, we are our friends grew up in the 90s so he played alot of nostalgic music for us that brought us all out on the dance floor!! Like I said we can't say enough about his positive attitude and professional services! We cant thank Jay enough for the wonderful memories he helped provide for us! We highly recommend Jay for any event, we gained not only a DJ for upcoming events but a friend!
Sandy Carlmark said: August 19th, 2014
DJ Jay you amazed us yet again! Jay has done several parties for us including a 40th, 50th, and now a joint 10th and 35th. He has an amazing knack of playing just the right song at just the right time. He always makes sure we find our collective groove. We would never never considering having anyone else bring the music and fun to our celebrations! Thank you Jay!
Danielle & Matthew said: July 14th, 2014
DJ Jay was one of our best vendors on the day of our wedding. He arrived in a timely manner, had a very professional and positive attitude and kept our dance floor packed the entire night! Prior to our wedding I asked dj jay to put together a mix of songs for my father daughter dance. He spent hours working on this going back and forth with me until it was perfect for me. Dj jay thanks for making our wedding amazing!
Christine Lessing Provost said: May 28th, 2014
Thank you Jason! I was frantic trying to find a DJ for my parents 50th Anniversary Party. A friend recommended DJ Jay. I am forever grateful for the recommendation. Jay went above and beyond to make the night a memorable one. He kept in contact with me throughout the planning stages and listened to my requests. He really listened when I talked about the music I remember growing up with. He then created a playlist based upon the music my parents loved! My mother, who had no clue about the party, said it all when she said "Wow, he's really playing some great music!" That made the night! Thank you so much for all that you did to make the night memorable and enjoyable! If I am ever in need of a DJ, you will be my first choice!
Colleen F said: March 3rd, 2014
I have had the pleasure having DJ Jay provide deejay services for numerous school events over the past couple of years to our school in Holyoke. DJ Jay has deejayed for our entire school for our Annual Walk-A- Thon Event and our end of the school year BBQ/Field Day Event for the past couple of years. We enjoyed having DJ Jay come to our school that we have had the privilege to offer him more deejaying events for our school. This past year, DJ Jay has deejayed our Jr. High Halloween, and Snowball Dances along with hosting and providing deejaying services for our PTO Gala Fundraiser Event. We will be using DJ Jay for many more events provided by our school. We already look forward to the next event that he will be deejaying for our school. DJ Jay is such a wonderful person, who is always professional and very reliable. DJ Jay will always surprise us with something new and fun when he deejays for our school events. Our students love having DJ Jay host their school events, and they look forward to the next event he will be deejaying for our school. Thank you so much for all your hard work, and dedication that you provide to all our school events. Thanks again for making so many wonderful memories, and we truly appreciate all that you have done and continue to do for our school!
Kerry O said: March 3rd, 2014
DJ Jay was the DJ for our Jack & Jill this past weekend. He was absolutely fantastic!! When I would email him with questions in the days coming up to the event, I would get a response in no time. We had a few special requests that he made happen without blinking an eye. DJ Jay is so professional and accommodated all song requests. Everyone kept commenting on how great he was! If we weren't getting married so far away he would be at our wedding for sure!! Thank you so much DJ Jay for making our night so spectacular!!!
Sara Quagliaroli said: March 2nd, 2014
My husband and I were so grateful that we hired DJ Jay for our September 2013 wedding reception. From the early planning stages to the big night, he was helpful, accessible, and very professional. Before we committed to working with him, he was willing to drive halfway to meet us (he is in South Hadley, we were in Boston) to go over the details. He provided helpful reminders to keep us on track during the process, and gave great suggestions when we were looking for guidance. He helped make our reception flawless - DJ Jay was a great MC - a calm, organized presence when he needed to be, and an energetic entertainer when it was time to get everyone out on the dance floor. I'm so happy DJ Jay was referred to us - I will definitely hire him for any music entertainment needs we have in the future, and encourage friends and family to work with him as well!
Jessica Welsh said: March 2nd, 2014 4:28 pm
Dj Jay did a great job djing my highschool dance for Chicopee High. The music was great and so was the lighting! I'd highly recommend him for any event! He'll make it one to remember!
Rozann F said: October 9th, 2013
DJ Jay was at a Jack and Jill I helped hosted this weekend. He was great. Wouldn't have made it through the night without him. Definitely recommend him for any function

I had the pleasure of working with DJ Jay Entertainment for a charity event. DJ Jay was the first sponsor to join us and was a joy to work with. DJ Jay was not only professional, helpful and reliable but also willing to add lots of little touches to make sure we were beyond happy with his DJ services. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication, it shows through in your work!
Erin Bronner said: November 5th, 2012
Jay was the DJ for both our Jack & Jill Party and Wedding. During the planning phases, he provided very good advice, helped us feel good about the way the events were planned and was always prompt at responding to communication. Jay was very friendly and easy to work with, and always had the dance floor filled! A very calm, fun, and professional DJ. We would highly recommend DJ Jay for any event!
Kathy Charpentier said: October 10th, 2012
As the mother of the bride, I found Jason to be very professional. Jason was the DJ for my daughter's Jack & Jill party and then her wedding this past weekend. He was very helpful and easy for the bride and groom to work with. If a DJ is doing his job, then the dance floor will be filled.....well, Jason had the dance floor filled at both parties! If you are looking for a great DJ, I highly recommend Jason!
Laura Shanahan said: September 17th, 2012
Jason rocked our 25th high school reunion! He was a pleasure to work with...very professional yet easygoing! He made the night a complete success . I would highly recommend Jason for any event that you have planned. In fact our 30th is only 5 years away. Hope it's not too early to book him! Thanks for a great night Jason!!!!
Elizabeth Traceski said: August 25th, 2012
My husband and I had very good experiences working with Jason, both before and during our wedding day. He was very friendly, open to all our ideas, able to give good advice and help when we needed it, prompt in his communications, and totally dependable. During the reception, Jason made sure everything ran smoothly, checked in with us for any scheduling questions, and brought a professional, calm presence to our otherwise hectic day! He followed to a tee all our requests and helped to make our reception one that we and all our guests will remember for a long time. We are very pleased with our experience with DJ Jay, and highly recommend him.
Kimberly Morrissette said: August 9th, 2012
Jason is a great entertainer and an all around very nice person too. He was so organized and flexible during our reception. We were undecided about a few things and needed a lot of guidance from A to Z. Without his "voice" we may not have accomplished what we needed. Song choices for special moments were ours to choose but the remaining tunes we left up to Jason and he did not let us down. Great job Jay!!!
