“Jason did an amazing job at our wedding! Leading up to the event, he was happy to make himself available by email or phone to talk through questions, logistics, and the event timeline. He also made suggestions for the type of music we’d want to be playing at certain points of the evening. We had a couple of special music requests (Beatles music for the ceremony, Latin music for cocktail hour and dinner, etc.), and during and after the party we had lots of friends complimenting us on the music and asking who our DJ was. In addition to setting the tone for our wedding and making sure that everyone had a good time during the reception, Jason also worked with our other vendors like the caterer and photographer to make sure that the event ran according to the timeline he had helped me to build out. The whole evening ran so smoothly thanks to him. I also appreciated that he brought nice slim Bose speakers that weren’t bulky (and popping up in our photos). I would definitely recommend hiring Jason for your wedding or other special event.”
“Jason was my wedding DJ and did an AWESOME job! The dancing never stopped and everyone had a blast. We had so many compliments on the music and everyone had a great time. I have memories to last a lifetime!
Also…I work for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, and because he was so good at my wedding, I asked him to help us. He did! He spent an entire day volunteering his time rather than making money on another job to help us with our kick off event. He was beyond amazing taking control of the crowd and keeping our party moving.
I would recommend him for any event. He is an amazing guy with a huge musical talent.”
“Jason was the DJ for our wedding and we both highly recommend him for yours! He was very professional, made accomodations for all our requests, and did both our ceremony and reception. He did a great job MC’ing both venues and keeping the event flowing smoothly and on time.
Jason is good at reading a crowd and moment and playing the appropriate music for any situation. He was able get the crowd going when needed, get them laughing when needed, and even played requests from our guests. He has a great planning tool/form he gave us to help plan the music we wanted for each step of the day.
Thank you Jason for making our day so special and to all those out there looking for a DJ, Jason is your man!”
“Jason was our wedding DJ and he was perfect! He played all our songs, took requests from our guests and had us dancing away! We were referred to him by our wedding guru, Duncan Reyes, who told us he had a great DJ for us to meet and he was absolutely right! Through our entire wedding planning process, Jason met with us (a couple of times actually and it was so fun! He’s such a great guy, we hit it off right away) he kept in contact and helped us choose our wedding playlist. He also provided us with killer uplights for our venue!! Jason is VERY experienced, professional and talented! We had a dream wedding with awesome music and we now have a new friend. Thank you so much Jason!! :-)”
“If you dont hire Jason- your missing out on not only a very talented man with skills but an over all lovable man who really just knows how to take care of a party and make sure everyone has a good time!! From the minute we shook hands, I knew he was the right guy. trust me- he knows his stuff and made me feel calm because I knew he was going to take care of it all. On such a short notice I gave Jason a 450 people reception and a very intense list of things to be done including trying to combine a very prideful side of east coast meets west coast reception! he created such a fun energetic atmoshphere, could not have been more happier, this mans great!! Id have another reception just for him hehehe…”
“I found Jason online while looking for a DJ for my wedding this past June to my now husband (also named Jason hahaha). Along with my wedding coordinator (named Jacin – I’m surrounded) – I can’t say enough WONDERFUL things about him!!! I would highly recommend him to anyone – he was a wonderful emcee and I feel so lucky to have had him for our wedding.
He was truly an integral and amazing part of the day – and in the end really helped to make the day just that much more special. He was VERY professional – he met with us and spoke to us many times over the phone to ensure that he knew our vision for the day. The day of our wedding we changed our song selections for entering the reception room and he was very flexible and understanding with us even with the last minute changes. He was early, was set up and ready to go and spoke to our wedding coordinator and had everything ready with her! He even ran through the entrance dance with my girlfriend who was a bridesmaid so he would know exactly what the transitions would be. It was FANTASTIC!!! The music he played was AWESOME – we had a group of many different ages and he was able to play songs that had everyone dancing!!!
Thank you Jason for everything and we will definitely hope to work with you again for any future functions!!!”
Jenny & Jason
“Your wedding was totally fun. Everybody danced!” were the words from most, if not all, of my friends and family. We owe much of the credit to our fantastic DJ, Jason Mitchell. Our main concern was to keep our guests dancing throughout the night until our taco truck showed up at the end of the reception. 😉 Our wedding was on 7/8/2011.
I’m really into music and I wanted someone who can keep the celebration vibe flowing but also adhere to the timeline. Jason delivered just that, professionally and nicely. Jason definitely was personable from the beginning; not at all pushy or arrogant like some other DJs we interviewed. He listened to our wants, needs, and ideas with enthusiasm and really worked with our budget. Another important feature Jason offers is the mood lighting; it’s a total must-have when you put on a big party with great music. He also worked really well with our other vendors.
We highly recommend DJ Jason; he’ll keep things poppin’ and off-the-hook!”
“If you need a DJ or an Emcee and you want your event to be extraordinary, you can never go wrong with Jason! DJ Jason Mitchell is the man! He won’t just make your event extra classy but he also makes sure that the quality and value of his services are really exceptional. My hubby and I hired him to be our DJ and emcee for our wedding and he did a fantastic job! He was so attentive to all our requests and even though we are so stressed out in picking our songs and sending it to him the last minute, he was able to manage it. From the first time we met him until our wedding day, he was so calm, friendly and very professional the whole time. Everything turned out well during our wedding day and we are so thankful for having him as our DJ and Emcee.”
“Jason DJ’d/MC’d and did lighting for our July wedding. He is fantastic!
From the first planning meeting to the last song of the night, Jason was in tune with what we wanted. He’s so easy to work with and makes sure that he coordinates timelines with you AND your planner/coordinator, so you can feel at ease that he totally knows what he’s doing and will make sure the night goes smoothly. He goes above and beyond what a normal DJ would do.
Our group of friends LOVES to dance, so we told him that we wanted dancing time to have a club atmosphere. He did hot pink uplighting and played music that kept people on the dance floor the whole night, even when the hubs and I were not in the reception area! We were standing outside, the music was going, and we heard people cheering and screaming. Clearly Jason can keep the party going!”
“With utmost confidence, I would highly recommend Jason Mitchell of Music Solutions DJs for premier event entertainment. In planning an upscale corporate occasion in the San Francisco Bay area, I had the pleasure of collaborating with Jason on the evening entertainment. Having a genuine understanding of our distinguished clientele, Jason selected the appropriate genre and set list for our audience. Consistent with his professional reputation, he was on time and on budget. On site, he demonstrated an uncanny ability to read the crowd and respond as needed to enrich and enliven the event experience. In working with Jason, I found him to be personable and reputable…a man of integrity in the music industry.”
“We recently hired Jason at Music Solutions for our wedding this past June. He was by far one of the our Best Vendors that we had at our wedding. Jason was very attentive and thorough with the DJ planning aspect. Like for instance there was a specific trumpet music that we were looking for. When we called Jason to notify him of the music or sound that we were looking for, he was quick to jump right on it to try a find what we had in mind. Also whenever we tried to contact him about any questions or concerns we had and was unable to reach him, he returned are calls asap (within the hour). Jason was willing to travel for us on two separate occasions. One was to meet with us to see the venue where we were getting married and at that time we were able to discuss the set up and contract. The second time was on the day of the wedding. During the wedding Jason was able to pronounce everyone first and last name correctly as well as having the ability to read the crowd and tailor the music accordingly. We Researched many different DJ companies and found that Music Solutions prices were very reasonable for what they had to offer. His equipment was top of the line. Again Jason thanks for making our day so special.
I would highly recommend Jason Mitchell for any special event. He will make your event planning so much easier.”
“Jason was a great DJ at our wedding, we recommend him for your next event! He was pleasant and responsive to our requests…he also took the time to check in with us throughout the evening. Guests were on the dance floor all night!”
“We hired Jason Mitchell to provide the music & DJ at my daughters wedding held in our backyard in August 2012. He created a play list that appealed to everyone who attended, from ages 3 to 85, and exactly fit with what the bride and groom were hoping for. More than that Jason read the crowd exactly and balanced the amount of talking vs music perfectly. He got the whole crowd going and everyone was dancing — I actually thought I should have gotten a bigger dance floor for the occasion! The best compliment of all was that was that no one wanted to leave, and I actually asked him to stay a bit longer since everyone was having so much fun dancing late into the night. I would hire Jason Mitchell again in a minute!”
“Jason was the DJ for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer 10th Anniversary 2012. He was great! The variety of music worked perfectly for the event! Thank you Jason!”
“Thee Best!!! Professional, honest, timely, friendly, can read the crowd and know whats best to play – mix master!! Simply OUTSTANDING – you get more than you pay for with the confidence you can turn it over to him to make your event a special day to be remembered.”
“We had Jason as as our wedding Dj. He was amazing. I didn’t really know what songs I wanted and told our Dj what genres we liked and he picked wonderful music. All of our guest loved the music. He had a great personality, very friendly yet professional. If we need a Dj for any other event I will be calling them again.”
“Having transplanted down to LA, I had no idea who to turn to for DJing an event I was planning in the Bay Area (where I’m from originally).
So, I contacted several reputable DJ’s (per Yelp) in the San Francisco area. Some were okay, but sounded out of touch with current music. A couple were VERY flakey, not even bothering to return a call or call back when they said they would. Some were super ARROGANT (like so many other reviews on DJ’s on here) and talked to me like I was being hired by them (WHAT?!). To round it out, some were just not very helpful in their planning or communication skills — something I very much needed and didn’t have time to waste.
“Jason over at Music Solutions DJ Service was the opposite of all those negative qualities. He was very professional, personable and great at planning a fun night with a bunch of old friends getting back together. His music library was excellent too. When I asked him for some obscure stuff, he knew exactly what I was talking about and I could tell if he hadn’t, he’d go look into it for me and get me what I needed.
I would highly recommend he and his company to any of my friends (already have) and to you reading this as well.”
“I was dj captain for my upcoming wedding in Santa Rosa. I cast a pretty wide net in the bay area and gave him a call. He seemed to fit the bill – willing to play top 40 hits, nothing on the do-not-play list, keeping people happy on the dance floor, and nothing super hokey. I showed the website to my fiance, and one of the things we liked the most about him was the availability of video of him in action, particularly the ones where you could hear the music actually being played at weddings. A couple of days later he came down to San Francisco to meet with us in person. Compared to the other djs I talked to, including the larger corporate dj “collectives,” he was by far the most responsive and accessible. He’s also priced competitively. Both my fiance and I are super excited to work with him! We’ll report later to let you know how it went.”
“I met Jason at a Bridal Faire and took his card for the future. I could always use a dj, and a good one at that. So I was throwing a party for my girlfriend this past friday, and it was a BBQ, pool bachelorette party. He was awesome! He was right on time, actually he was early which was great love a vendor that is punctual! Also, his setup in my backyard was awesome! I got so many compliments on his music, and his djing. With the lights he brought to put over my pool, and the super slim speakers that didn’t take up a lot of space, I have to say I was very impressed!
My girlfriend loved the music, and the atmosphere Jason created for us! I even had several friends ask for his contact iinformation for their future possibilities. You know they’re good when your friends are drunk and still wanting to get their info so they can hire them at some future event. Overall, I have never met a more professional and fun to have dj my party! Well worth it Jason! Thank you again!”
“Jason made the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Great Start Party a major hit! I enjoyed everything he did the whole afternoon. He made the even fun and entertaining. He was great when he had the whole crowd get up and stretch together… he was really fun when introducing the staff… and he played great music while the models strutted their stuff down the runway. He is my #1 pick for a DJ the next time I throw an event.
Thanks for making me smile Jason :)”
“For my wedding, Jason did a great job. He understood what I was looking for musically and executed with much success. His music kept the audience going, long than I had anticipated (a plus!). Additionally, he followed my instructions to a tee, everything a bride wants and needs. Throughout the entire process, he was responsive and helpful. I’d recommend him to everyone.
My only minor gripe is that his assistant wore a dress that was too loud for the occasion, especially since the DJ area was front and center. Solid print apparel would have been more appropriate.”
“DJ Jason was GREAT! He volunteered his whole Saturday to DJ a non-profit event we were having. There were about 300+ people, and he did an amazing job with everything.
I sat down with him before the event and he is so easy to work with- we went through the entire script we had planned out, and discussed when we wanted the music loud throughout our program, and when we needed it to be quiet for the presentation. Also, he had great suggestions and took a very active part to get the program moving in the beginning. Not only is he a great DJ; he is a great speaker and got our crowd motivated! He was totally willing to make any and all announcements if we wanted him to, and I felt very comfortable that we was going to pump the crowd up, as well as be professional throughout the day. We also did a fashion show portion which was AMAZING! He was on top of his game.
I had friends in the audience who said what an amazing difference the music made. We are indebted to Jason, because without his talent our event would not have been such a success!
I strongly recommend him for your next event. Thanks Jason!!”
“I hired DJ Jason for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. I couldn’t have asked for a better evening. He worked with us prior to the event to plan out certain “games” we would play to keep the kids attention and had some great ideas that we quickly adopted. He also worked with Leyla to get a list of the songs she wanted to hear and he came up with additional based on what she liked. The evening went soooo smooth. Jason handled it very well. The kids were entertained and danced from 8:30 until 11pm! DJing for the “13” age group is much different from DJing a wedding and Jason proved that he is a perfect choice for this type of event!”
“Jason was the djay at my son’s birthday party, and he was fabulous! He read the crowd, made everyone happy, and was a pleasure to work with along the way. He took specific music selections from my son, and made sure the party was centered around him. I definitely recommend Jason to anyone looking for a non-cheesy djay for their event!”
“DJ Jason was a great addition to our event. He is super professional and helped make our event a success. His music really helped make the mood fun and I really hope we can work with him again next year.”
Jason was the DJ for my sisters wedding in Danville, CA and he had the prefect blend of old school songs mixed with some current music that really had all generations coming onto the dance floor. I would definitely recommend him for any of your future events.
“He knew when to switch it up and knew how to let the crowd know what was going on when he was working as MC. Good stuff and much thanks.”
“I got married this last November and Jason did a wonderful job! I actually knew he was great before our wedding because I worked at a wedding with him and saw how much the guests were loving the songs he was playing. He is very great at communicating with you leading up to the wedding to make sure everything goes well. He wasn’t one of those annoying DJs that talk the whole time, he played great music and talked at the appropriate times. I would recommend him to anyone!”
“I saw DJ Jason at an event for the San Francisco Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. He brought the party to life! He had a great selection of music that made for a lively vibe at the party and got everyone really pumped up for the big event. He was very natural and had a lot of fun with the crowd and the staff to make sure everyone was on their feet and having a blast! I would recommend him for any event!”
“Jason made our New Years! He is enthusiastic, positive, super fun, and reads the crowd well… great music, great fun! I would recommend him for any event!”
“Jason was the DJ for a Whole Foods Market 3 store holiday party. Competing with the casino venue for people’s attention, Jason has an uncanny ability to read an audience and get them engaged at the right time. Once the energy flows it goes all night long.Everyone had a great time.”
“Jason killlllled it at our holiday party. He had a wide variety of music that got everyone on the dance floor. And I mean everyone. If you are looking for a DJ that will get everyone at your event groovin’, Jason is your man.”
“Was recently at a buddy’s wedding and was so impressed with the DJ that I had to approach him and ask what company he was with! Found out it’s his own company… He made the reception and after party as his energy was awesome. I grabbed one of his cards and told him I will be booking him for one of my company’s parties! So Jason when I call I hope you remember me.”
“I have hired many DJs over my career as an event planner and restaurant owner. DJ Jason is among the best I have seen. He understands the crowd, is extremely responsible, gets to the place early, set up his cool stuff, and then plays to the crowd. He also listens to the organizer and does not simply play what he wants. One time, we had latino party and Jason made the party. I now hire Jaosn for all our venues, as a great party is guaranteed if Jason plays his music.”
“I produce Bay Area Wedding Fairs. We’ve had the unique perspective of seeing many DJs from around the Bay Area exhibit at our shows over the years and ask only the best to actually DJ, Emcee and Host the entertainment for our Fashion shows at our Fairs. Our attending Brides expect only the very best from our shows and we are very particular and select only the best DJ’s to represent us.
Such is Jason Mitchell. He is now in his 2nd full Season Hosting our shows and we get regular comments from our Brides at how good our shows are. Without Jason, our shows wouldn’t have the fun, flair, style, professionalism and overall quality entertainment value that they have. We are proud to have him as part of Bay Area Wedding Fairs and would highly recommend him for your Wedding, Party or Corporate Event. He is simply Great!
Please Contact us at Bay Area Wedding Fairs for a personal reference on Jason’s outstanding work.”
“We booked Jason for our wedding in Sonoma in August ’10. I was terrified in booking a vendor that I hadn’t met, but obviously we needed a DJ. Jason was very personable and quick to respond to any questions that I had. I can honestly say that I don’t think we could have made a better choice. Jason worked with me from the beginning, always there for any little question or concern that I had. As our wedding date approached, Jason was incredibly helpful with music selections for the ceremony. He called me the day before the wedding while in his car and helped me pick the best song EVER for my walk down the aisle! On the day of the wedding, Jason was set up at the venue before I even arrived and was ready to go with everything we needed and more. He even sent me a text while I was locked away in the bridal suite assuring me that everything was set to go!
We gave Jason free reign to turn our reception into a romantic dinner and cocktail hour, then a true party afterwards. He did an amazing job. Our dance floor was full the entire reception. I cannot thank Jason enough for the wonderful job that he did and his personalized service.”
“I highly recommend Jason for any event. He was my DJ for my wedding and he was so extremely easy to work with. We had a traditional Hindu ceremony and a “mixed” reception and he utilized the music we gave him perfectly. He truly paid attention to my specific song requests and was amazing playing the music for a “secret dance” my sister & I performed. Of course as most brides, I had a million last-minute questions (literally- 3am in the morning!) and he was always quick to respond to any concerns and requests. Jason is not only down-to-earth, but also truly professional; he’s amazing to work with without a doubt!”
“DJ Jason DJ’ed our wedding out in Walnut Creek, CA on 9/5. Prior to to the wedding, Jason was really easy to get a hold of for questions and worries (via phone, texting, and email). Oh, please keep in mind we live in New York, and were organizing the wedding long distance. Jason was super accomodating, affordable, professional, and comfortable to work with. A few notes:
Jason had the timings down for some really specific requests. We wanted a particular part of a particular song played for our entry, and he did it as I had imagined, and then repeated just the right parts. We also asked him to abruptly change from a slow dance to hiphop, and he transitioned it really well.
Jason set up two of his vertical speakers, which seemed plenty loud enough for the whole room to hear us…but some people in the back said they had some trouble hearing the MC (300 people capacity in square room, 268 in attendance). During the dancing, the music was plenty loud enough.
We had a Hawaiian accented wedding, and during dinner, asked for some rather specific/obscure Hawaiian music, he accommodated and provided. Same for our first song, it was definitely not a pop song. He certainly had the latest dance music that we were looking for as well.
Working with Jason:
Seriously, zero problems. I bombarded the poor guy with a billion emails, and he handled all of our requests. ADDED BONUS: Jason threw up 6 or 8 uplights for free, as well as some ceiling light things that act like disco balls for dancing, also for free.
I’d definitely recommend Jason for any events.”
“I was looking for a DJ to play at my parents 50th Wedding anniversary party, and called Jason. Told him the kind of music I wanted and how the night would play out with the music, and events. Jason arrived on time, set up, and did a great job. Jason was professional and never left his board playing all kinds of great music! Best of all he was affordable and did a great job. I would defiantly use Music Solutions in the future! More than a few people at the event commented on how good Jason was!”
