As a young child Justin was inclined toward music, from his first record player at 2 to traveling the world with the renowned Berkeley High Jazz band, his amorous relationship with music of all genres has never hit a sour note. He grew up listening to the original KBLX and KMEL on his way to trumpet, drum and piano lessons. His knowledge and love of music translates into a repertoire of eclectic records which he manipulates to create smooth gracefully orchestrated and satisfyingly harmonic transitions.
Flash forward a few years and meet DJ Just- IN!, a crowd pleasing energetic DJ whose contagious persona pours out from behind the mixer. Clients and crowds can't resist his knack for drawing people to the dance floor even when there isn't one, and getting the whole place buzzing. Working with event planners and couples he has produced wedding ceremonies and receptions that have clients and guests' alike raving about their experience. DJ Just-IN's varied club appearances have led to a residency at Parliament's House Party where he spins everything you want to hear from the 90s to today!

Experience and skill is very important. Sure, you can get a $300 Wedding DJ, but generally, they are new to the profession or amateurs, and are doing it as a hobby. The cheaper DJ's have cheaper gear and as a result, don't provide the level of service and quality that a real professional provides. You might say, "Well, who cares as long as they play music?" There's a lot more to it than playing music.
I will take time to do it RIGHT which includes, at no charge to you, meetings to discuss your music selections and the sequence of events. I will coordinate with the Wedding Planner to ensure things go smoothly. I will also visit the venue ahead of time to plan out logistics. I have high tech lighting and know how to use it to its maximum performance. I am a superior DJ with a top quality sound system that includes sub-woofers for hard hitting bass. My MC skills are not over the top and I will not over use the microphone. I have a concert quality lighting rigs with industry standard lifts and trussing. The lighting will give you the night club feel. I have the ability to read the crowd so that the dance floor is full most of the night. I take requests and put them in the mix so they fit the mood. Last but not least, as a professional, I will dress professionally and I will not hit on your bridesmaids!!! .....all things you will not get with a $300 Wedding DJ.
With DJ Just-IN!, quality is never sacrificed. Give me a call so we can start planning today! I am happy to put you in touch with past client so they can shear their experience with you.
