Why JTD?

Peace of mind.

video by I DO MOVIES

For every gig we do, from an elegant country wedding to a backyard party, we have back up DJs, back up equipment, a million dollars insurance, and most importantly, over 25 years of experience. We are hip without being esoteric while at the same time accessible without being generic or cheesy.

We sweat the details so you can relax and enjoy.

As we always say: there’s no greater luxury than peace of mind and no greater indulgence than shaking your booty. At JTD, we guarantee both.

What to Expect

JTD Productions New York DJ ServicesWhen you’re ready to hire us to DJ your event, you can visit the “check availability” page of our site. You’ll be asked to fill out a few brief questions that will help us to help you have the best possible event. Please answer all questions as best you can and remember, all information is confidential. Within 24 hours, you’ll receive an automated email letting you know we got your inquiry and a follow up call from Nellie or me to answer all our questions and get a better idea of your tastes and vision. By the end of the call we will have an idea of which DJ will be a good fit both artistically and budget-wise and will set up a call or meeting with that DJ, if desired. It’s not imperative but we find it very helpful to have you personally meet with your DJ at some point so you have a relationship and feel comfortable that they understand your needs and can execute your vision. There are complete bios and references for all DJs here.

Addressing some common concerns, every one of my DJs is fully insured with a million dollars of liability insurance. All of our DJs have backup equipment, which can also help a second set up or in case of an emergency. We arrive early, stay late and dress like a well-dressed guest. Our set up is minimal and unobtrusive, as is our presence and approach. While we are all accomplished public speakers and can make announcements as needed/desired, please note that we control the flow of the event with music and not the mic. We can provide elegant up lighting if so desired. For a detailed list of frequently asked questions, click here.

JTD Productions Dance Floor Sign“Thanks so much for the great job you did at the wedding. Everyone had a blast, and I know that was largely due to the kick-ass music being played. I also appreciate you taking care of things we needed, as that was not your responsibility. You went way above and beyond the call of duty. If you have a referral list, stick me on the top. I have nothing but good things to say. Thanks again, we’ll be calling you in the future.”
