thank you so much James for the DJ lessons you gave to my son. It was fantastic for him to learn properly and you were very patient and soo helpful to him - receiving one of your vouchers for his birthday was such a great gift for my son! thanks again

I cannot recommend James highly enough! He was the DJ at my daughter's 13th birthday party and right from the first time we talked to hiim he was engaging and accommodating and 100% focused on making her party the best experience for her. James was super easy to deal with and nothing was too much trouble. Belle provided her Spotify playlist, commuication was easy, he arrived with lots of time to set up, his equipment is the best and the music and lights were awesome. James is a great guy too so we couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Huge thanks James, we will definitely be recommending you to all our friends.

Thanks so much to James for being the DJ at our School Graduation Disco for the last 3 years. James keeps the kids entertained with dance competitions and involving them as judges! This year was hard as the Disco had to be outside, without a stage!! But James adapted well to the challenge , and the kids had a fantastic time. Thanks so much James!!
Patrick Lithgow
Fantastic experience. James was really professional and considerate during consultations, he helped us plan a great night for our guests. On the night he knew exactly how and when to change the pace. He knew which Greek music to play and which modern music would go well with it. He checked in with us throughout the night as well and worked with our MC to make sure the formalities were perfect.I honestly couldn't have asked for a more perfect DJ. Thank you very much James.

James from Only Dj's Melbourne was fantastic. We booked him in August for our wedding in November. In the lead up to our wedding his communication was excellent! James checked in every few days before the wedding just in case any details had changed - this was so reassuring. On the night, James came and introduced himself to us and kept checking in with us throughout the night to see if we needed anything. We would highly recommend James. Thankyou for an amazing night!

Camillia contacted us on the 27-06-19 whilst we were performing at a charity event, Quiz for a cause. She was upset that the DJ had backed out at the last minute. She was concerned that we may not be able to perform well with Lebanese music. Our DJ was not only able to play the music for the night, but was able to mix in the Lebanese music with Rnb. Please click here to see the Instagram video of the recording. Our DJs have the skills to make us the best last minute and backup DJ hire in Melbourne.
