2017 was quite a year! In addition to the many celebratory life events we performed, our company president, Darryl “Jake” Jacobsen was selected to host and produce DJ Times Magazine’s Entertainer of the Year Competition and Monday Night Kickoff party. In addition he hosted his tenth consecutive, highly anticipated Games seminar at the DJ Times International Expo Conference. All three events were met with incredibly positive reviews and he has been asked to produce and host all three of these events again in 2018. Jake said, “It is the biggest single award night in the Mobile DJ industry and it is an unbelievable honor to be chosen among so many of the nations best. I hope to be running this for many more years.”
We performed at many events this year and were so thrilled to help all of the wonderful people who continue to trust Affair 2 Remember Entertainment. Thank you for your continued support and we can’t wait to rock your parties throughout the coming year!
2016 was a heckuva year, but 2017 is going to be amazing. First, we’d like to thank all of our clients who continue to make it possible for us to join amazing celebrations. We’ve already been booking a lot of new events and we hope we’ll hear from you soon to discuss being the entertainment at your next event.
We are also proud to announce that Affair 2 Remember Entertainment has been selected as a Wedding Wire Bride’s Choice Award winner for the seventh consecutive year! Thank you to all of our wonderful couples for the awesome reviews and comments!

It is quite an honor as this is the premier awards contest in the disc jockey industry attended by thousands of professional DJ’s from around the world. It’s kind of like being asked to host the Oscars in the movie world. Jake has competed and won awards for Best Dance and Best Game in this contest and has also sat as a judge. This will be a wonderful, new experience for him. Jake will also be hosting his Games and Dances seminar for the 10th straight year.

Congratulations! So now it’s time to take care of the most important part of your wedding experience, the entertainment. How do you choose the right entertainer for your once in a lifetime celebration? What should stand out in our decision making? One thing we would highly recommend is to seek out performance first. While we are very proud of all the really cool extras we can provide like lighting, flat screens, photo booths, dance floors, lounge furniture etc, what we really like to focus on at this beginning stage of your planning is the actual performance of your selected entertainer. From the beginning we like to get to know our couples on a more personal level so we can get a feel for their personalities. Are you looking for something wild and crazy? Are you looking for something more elegant? Maybe something in between? Finding this and other important things about both of you help us to give you a very personal experience where your wedding feels like your wedding and not a cookie cutter of some other wedding that has been seen and done a thousand times. Believe it or not, we can really make this happen. When your wedding day rolls around you will be astonished (like all of our couples) at how the wedding actually feels like both of you. How there is no way it could have ever been another couples party. You don’t just have a good wedding reception, you have an amazing wedding reception! The kind where you just can’t believe the greatest wedding you ever went to was your own. Give us a call today and let us show you exactly how we make magic happen! And again, congratulations!

One thing to be considered when hiring entertainment for your celebration is to consider what a particular company is doing to better themselves. Are they using worn out and outdated techniques of entertaining? Do they attend any educational conferences? Do they belong to local or national associations aimed to create learning opportunities? Does your entertainer still say and do the same things year after year?
At Affair 2 Remember Entertainment, we always have our eye out for what is new and exciting in our industry. We attend a minimum of two national conferences per year and monthly local meetings of the New Jersey Disc Jockey Network. We are members of the two largest National DJ Associations in the country in the ADJA (American Disc Jockey Association) and NAME (National Association of Mobile Entertainers). We recently came back from the 4 day long Mobile Beat Conference in Las Vegas. Okay, so Las Vegas is cool , but we did spend quite a bit of time in the classroom learning. We’ve read practically every book that has ever been written about our industry. Why? To always try to be the best. To give our deserving clients the best of who we are as entertainers. That’s why our reputation for creating unique and amazing events is so good. We work at it. Hard. If you’ve never given this much thought about this when hiring entertainment. Now is a good time to start. After all, it’s your time, money and effort being spent. Don’t you want entertainment that uses it’s time, money and effort to get better?
This past August 14th, our very own Darryl “Jake” Jacobsen competed in the DJ Times DJ of the Year Competition held annually at the Taj Mahal Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Jake was competing in the Best New, Original Game Category with a frenetic, team played art game called, “The 7 Second Artists”. The game uses sketch pads and teams of 7 persons to create all types of imaginative pictures. Each player on the team is given a different color marker and when they are told to go, they have only 7 seconds to add to whatever needs to be created. The game is fast paced and extremely fun. The game was enthusiastically embraced by all of the attendees. The judges also agreed as Jake was awarded the Best New Game title for 2013 amongst some really great competitors from across the country. Jake has long been known for making great games as he has helmed the Games and Dances seminar for the DJ Times Conference for the last 6 years. If you’d like to experience this award winning game for your next event, please don’t hesitate to call us!
A huge thank you to all of the amazing couples we’ve gotten to work with! We appreciate you choosing us to create your perfect wedding memories!
