"We recommend Jay La Bella 100%. There was a nor’easter storm on our wedding day and nothing went according to plan but Jay rolled with it and gave us the BEST NIGHT! I’m still getting comments from guests about how great the music was. Jay listened to everything we wanted, and went above and beyond our expectations for laid back romantic vibe during dinner and a mix of new and old dance songs to keep the dance floor crowded. The mood he set especially during cocktail hour and dinner was exactly what I had envisioned, and the dance floor was packed all evening. Jay set up multiple calls beforehand to review the reception timeline, make recommendations, and get to know our music preferences. We planned the whole wedding in just 3 months, and he was arguably our most organized vendor even on short notice, and an all around good guy." — Nina F, Bride, Mombo, 2018
Some say that it's impossible to please everyone all the time. Here at La Bella and The Beat, that is precisely the goal! Keeping the dance floor packed with guests of all ages and sticking smiles every face in the room is exactly why I do this. Making the entire day and night absolutely magical for couples just like YOU is what it's all about! As a married man myself, I understand that this is one of the biggest days of your life and I want to help you celebrate it by providing a 100% stress-free entertainment experience that you will continue to share stories about for years to come!
"This guy rocked, literally and figuratively... From talking a jittery bride off the ledge to going waaaayy above and beyond in terms of flexibility, organization, responsiveness to the clients' idiosyncratic music needs, and physical presence at the event itself, Jay was an utter professional. We will only be using Jay for any future event needs that require music and/or a cool-as-a-cucumber MC!" — Linda M, Mother of Bride, Roberts Road Barn, 2018
Whether it's a local intimate wedding or a lavish and action-packed extravaganza you can expect everything you ever dreamed of from a custom-crafted wonderful wedding we can create together that keeps you in the spotlight without ever bringing the same old cornball tactics into the mix.
"Jay was unbelievable since day one. I contacted him last year to DJ our wedding after he had played at one of my friends weddings where I had a total blast. Jay was sooooo accommodating that he and his wife (who was also our photographer) drove up to Maine to meet with us and go over our ideas for our dance party. Jay stayed in close communication with me throughout my entire planning process and was even awesome when it came to dealing with my last minute brain! He even attended our rehearsal to check out the venue and to figure out where speakers should be placed etc. Ryan and I are so blown away about how great Jay was that I could ramble on and on. I know as a couple you may be hesitant towards hiring DJ's because we have all been to those weddings where the DJ was boring!!! This is not the case with Jay! He listens to you and works damn hard to piece everything together and make sure it goes perfect! You will not be disappointed. My family loved him so much that he has now been converted into an Irish man haha!" — Michelle S, Bride, Bedford Village Inn, 2018
