Don't think twice. Go with Meritage for your DJ. Don't trust me? Get on a call with James, then you will. James set the tone that our wedding would in NO WAY be CLICHÉ. It just so happened that one of the available DJ's for our wedding was also HIS wedding Dj. That says something, for sure, but DJ Dan ended up being the backbone of our entire wedding day - from Ceremony Soundtrack, to custom editing two songs for two surprise dance performances, to keeping our guests dancing and smiling from beginning to end, Dan absolutely, without a doubt, CRUSHED IT. I even had engaged friends asking for his contact at the end of the night so they could hire him too!! I had the best day of my life, and a huge percentage of that was because of Meritage. Thank you, Dan. I hope you had as much fun as we did :)

We cannot say enough how wonderful it was to have Peter provide DJ services for our wedding. We could say a lot of great things... but it's probably best to hit the main points.

He is a consummate professional and a hard worker. He was constructive without being pushy when we were planning out the must plays, the don't plays, and the introductions. He took the time to really get to know us so he could tailor the whole experience (which he did successfully). He was prompt on the day of, got along with guests, staff and other vendors, did not distract attention, and deflected awkward requests politely (really important).

He is a true musician that loves his work and it showed through his excitement and with the custom, live remixes he worked in. Our friends still talk about how great the wedding music was and we even have a playlist on Spotify based on it! We enthusiastically recommend him to everyone, and we would have been legitimately satisfied even at three times the price. You could not be in better hands, and we're happy to answer questions by phone or email to reassure you.

James DiNanno came recommended to me through my Aunt, an experienced event planner for many, local events around the North Shore. An experienced event planner myself, I knew I wanted someone who would assume an M.C. role with ease, professionalism, independence and talent.

James was fantastic. We were his last possible booking in the month of September; and he still found time to spend close to an hour discussing our wedding with me. In addition, his ceremony form was extremely comprehensive - but, open to flexibility, always defering to our vision as the bride and groom. In the areas where I was not sure what song might be appropriate to play, I had every confidence that I could leave the decision up to "DJ's choice" and that it would work.

Different than other DJ's James, was very interested in assuming an integral role in our wedding. He was excited about the opportunity to take on the M.C. role in addition to just playing music. James was a perfect host. He knew exactly when to keep the music light, soft, upbeat and easy (during our cocktail reception, dinner, and around cake cutting later on in the reception); and he knew exactly when to get people crazy on the dance floor.

I would HIGHLY recommend James to any future bride. He will take care of you, your families, your crowd and he will do so with minimal guidance and oversight. He knows music backwards and forwards; and if you happen to want a special song that he might not have at his fingertips, you can rest assured he will find it and have it ready for you before your big day.

James Dinanno was absolutely amazing at our wedding! He did an amazing job with both my ceremony and reception..

Guests didn't want to leave! I can't thank him enough for making my night so special!

My fiancée and I received a recommendation for DJ James DiNanno from a friend whose cousin is also a DJ. Our friend's cousin was already booked for our wedding day, so we were glad to get the recommendation. DJ James turned out to be the perfect DJ for our wedding. Our wedding guests spanned all ages, but he was able to mix the music perfectly and entertain everyone. His engaging style and ability to read our guests kept the dance floor crowded the entire evening.
Our initial phone meeting was almost an hour long and convinced me that we had the right DJ for our wedding. Throughout the wedding planning, DJ James was always professional, helpful, courteous and importantly, energetic. His thorough pre-wedding preparation included a detailed reception questionnaire and several follow-up conversations. This preparation and attention to detail provided much needed peace of mind. Like a true professional, he arrived at our reception venue two hours prior to its starting time.
If another opportunity/event presents itself, my wife and I would hire DJ James again; therefore, I would recommend DJ James without hesitation for your wedding reception or any other event that required a outstanding, professional and enthusiastic DJ.
