A Truly Multi-Faceted Entertainer

DJ Jake

Being a DJ/Emcee for most of his adult life, there is not much that Jake has not come across in his vast experience hosting events! He is equally comfortable both behind the mixing console/DJ booth as well as out in the middle of the crowd, rallying guests onto the dance floor. As a mobile entertainer, Jake has beat mixed in many night clubs over the years and knows his way around a turn table, tearing up the dance floor with his formidable mixing skills while fluidly moving between genres and keeping the party hopping. As an Emcee, Jake is at his best with a microphone in hand, bringing even the most timid of party guests out to the dance floor. So don’t be surprised to see your 95 year-old grandparents out there, partying like they’re in their teens! The connections Jake is able to create across the generation gaps to get every guest partying together is amazing to witness.

Singing Jake

Prior to his recent relocation to Georgia, Jake was (and still occasionally is) the lead singer and rhythm guitar player for one of New Jersey Shore’s hottest party rock bands, The Trend. Having the unique ability to sing, play guitar and emcee, with the background knowledge of being a DJ for so many years, gives the band an incredible party dynamic that has everyone dancing and singing along all night long. His ability to thoughtfully create a set-list so that the music flows effortlessly and continually from one song into the next sets this band apart from most in that there’s a continual flow of non-stop interactive partying from start to finish. You can also find Jake playing for Private Corporate and Family Events, Cocktail Hours, and tons of Bars/Restaurants and Coffee Houses, where he always has everyone clapping, dancing or singing along.

Rev. Jake

A Wedding Officiant Too?!: YES he is! Reverend Jake is a non-denominational wedding officiant that few can equal, allowing his clients the option to hold their wedding ceremonies at any location of their choosing. Whether you dream of a wedding on the beach, lakeside, farmland, mountain-side or park, to a beautiful ceremony on location at your reception venue, Jake makes it all possible. He custom creates wedding ceremonies for the most discerning of clientele. His ceremonies are filled with heartfelt sentiment as well as a sense of humor. In his planning interviews with them, he gets to know his couples quite well and therefore, tells a fun, condensed version of a couple’s love story leading up to their special day. His favorite compliment which he gets quite often from guests and clients alike, is that they did not want the ceremony to end and his couples gushing over how many of their family and friends adored their ceremony. A truly personalized experience!

More About Jake

I have been in the Entertainment Industry for quite a while and I have not only tried to do the right thing by my clients, but I have tried to give back to the DJ Industry as much as I can. I am currently the host and Producer of DJ Times Magazine’s “Entertainer of the Year” competition as well as the rather amazing Monday Night Kickoff Party. The Entertainer of the Year competition is the single biggest night in the mobile DJ industry and being asked to be responsible for its yearly success is a huge honor. I will presiding over the competition for the third time this August at the Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. At this same conference I have presided over the Games seminar for the last 12 years. It is really fun to be able to show original games and to give other DJ’s the opportunity to perform for their fellow entertainers. Over the years I have been the President of the New Jersey Disc Jockey Network. Over my 5 year presidency I turned it into the largest local DJ association in the world. I have spoken at various DJ meetings and conferences to help DJ’s with improving their performances by thinking outside the box. I have been featured in both Mobile Beat and DJ Times Magazines respectively.

I am a big proponent of ongoing education. I go to at least 2 national conferences per year and a bunch of smaller ones. Always trying to improve should be the mantra of every entertainer.

You may be wondering what this page is doing here. Is he really that egotistical? I’m leaving this here because when you are looking to hire entertainment for your important celebration, you should want to know about that entertainers accumulated knowledge and experience. This page is for you to see a little of mine.
