We love you guys! <3
From day one, we felt like we could trust Mikayla and Johnny, and they followed through to the highest of our expectations at our wedding celebration. Meeting with us to help us plan our series of events, they had great attitudes and specific questions, with follow-up appointments and guidance every step of the way.
Our celebrations involved performances by 4 different groups of live musicians in two different locations, as well as all of the usual speeches, toasts, ceremony, games, dancing, and even some custom music that they mixed for us. We feel so blessed to have picked them and for them to have worked with our calendar to reschedule after the pandemic. We’d pick them again 100 times! `Josh and Jess 08-01-2021

I had several opportunities in the past to attend events that Johnny Only DJ’d at, so my decision was made for me when I got engaged as who would be my DJ. Working with Johnny Only is a dream. He takes very details notes and asks questions to make sure he completely understands what you want. He brought several ideas about making our reception special and they turned out great. We use his Cloud for our first dance with lights and it certainly made for the amazing pictures he promised. Our guests loved it too. Entertainment is Johnny Only’s business, it’s not just a side job, and it shows. You will be nothing but 100% satisfied with his services.

Johnny was the absolute best! I was planning this wedding from NYC and he truly did everything to make me feel comfortable. From meeting when convenient for me to suggesting vendors he was so helpful! On our wedding day he was great! Everyone loved him! He kept the party going! The first dance on a cloud was perfect too. His assistant (his daughter) helped keep the party going by helping with the dances and having the photo booth run smoothly. If I had to do it all again I would choose him!
I’m so happy that we hired Mikayla as our DJ at our wedding. Not only did we get so many positive comments from our guests, but we were thrilled with the music she played. Mikayla was amazing as an MC announcing us for the grand entrance and during the night’s events. She was great to work with, and did an excellent job understanding the crowd and figuring out what music everyone would enjoy. Everyone had a great time, and guests of all ages danced all night long.
The photobooth was a huge hit and we literally laughed out loud when we looked through the guest book they made. Every guest at my wedding, young and old, loved the photo booth and the props provided. Guests loved being able to take home a copy of the photo and we were given the finished guest book and flash drive of photos before we left the venue. Mikayla and Johnny were amazing to work with and I would recommend them to anyone.

Thank YOU again for working with me! The photo booth was by far the hit of the night. We loved looking at everyone’s pictures and the videos were awesome! What a nice touch to the memories of our special day. Thank you so much for everything. The props were perfect and the book at the end was awesome. I highly recommend this to everyone I know having a wedding or party! 🙂

We had the best time!!! Having you run the show was one of the best decisions we could have made. You did such an awesome job, and really know your audience! I was so impressed with your perfect balance of professionalism and adaptable, carefree attitude. Your timing was great; everything seemed to come together so naturally, even though I know it was mostly planned out in advance. You did a fantastic job keeping us on track without interrupting our fun, and agreed to our last minute requests as if it was no bother to you. You really kept things easy for us, which is so very much appreciated! Looking around the dance floor, all I saw were smiling faces, and people totally wrapped up in the music and fun they were having. It was just what I had hoped for, and can’t thank you enough!
All the best,
Lexi and Jamie 9/6/15
DJ Johnny Only, Thank you so much for making our reception a blast. You kept everyone on the dance floor all night. You even picked great intro songs for us, since we forgot to pick some! The Photobooth was perfect! Our guests loved it and left us with some funny pictures. The Album you made for us to keep is wonderful. Thanks again for your hard work, we really enjoyed it!
Awesome! You did an amazing job with the music. We received so many compliments throughout dinner of the song choices. The volume was perfect. and the up lighting and monogram was a hit. Thank you so much for making our day so special and perfect. Hopefully my cousin didn’t step on your toes! You both did awesome together!!!
I appreciate everything you did for us. I am so happy I picked you and you made the night!!!! Thank you so so much!!!!

Hi Johnny! Just wanted to let you know how happy we all were with the wonderful hosting and DJ-ing on Saturday. The compliments just keep pouring in about what a fantastic time everyone had. Kelly and Anthony said they were so glad they selected you and the techno club dance part was incredible! Their friends will be talking about this one for a long long time. Thanks again for working with us on short notice. It was Perfect-O!

Jonathan & Jaime,
Thank you very much for DJ-ing our June 21st, 2014 wedding at the Binghamton Club! Us and our guests had such a blast that night! A lot of our friends said it was the most fun they have had at a wedding reception! We appreciated your attention to detail with the music to get the party going, and how flawlessly the reception activities transitioned throughout the night. Also, a big thanks to Jaime for manning the photobooth, our guests had a blast with it!!!!!

Johnny Only did a fantastic job as the DJ and MC for our High School Prom. He played a great mix of both our requests and popular hits. Johnny Only knew his audience and kept the Prom rocking for hours with music that we really wanted to listen to and dance to. His speaker system is very powerful and easily filled our large venue with sound. His system has an excellent range, with crystal clear vocals and deep pounding bass. It was everything that one would expect out of a professional DJ and more. As an MC, Johnny did an excellent job of announcing our Prom Court and kept the Prom flowing smoothly all night. His up-lighting synchronized with the music and created a really cool unique atmosphere that changed for each song and served as the perfect backdrop to our simple decorations.. The projected monogram and TV picture slide show were cool additions that also really helped to personalize and commemorate the event.
Thank you Johnny Only; you made our Prom night the best that it could be.

Thank you that was so nice! We are very proud and pleased it went so well! Everyone had a blast!
Thank you again! You were such a huge part of today’s success! Always fun having you at All Saints.
I just wanted to tell you again what a wonderful job you did with Yuval’s party. You orchestrated everything perfectly and in a way that both kids & adults thoroughly enjoyed. And Yuval was absolutely thrilled with the whole party. Thank you!
We cannot begin to tell you how amazing it was to have to you DJ our reception. Everyone kept raving about how much fun our DJ was! Thank you for making our big day one that we will never forget! I’m so glad you enjoyed the Salmon dinner especially after I talked so highly about it! We should be receiving our pictures within the coming weeks and once we do of course you can have the picture we took at the end!
We asked for a DJ and left with a friend.Thank you!
With much love,

Thank YOU for all the thought that you gave to today and for making it extra special w/ all your little touches…it was perfect, as I knew it would be.
“We just booked Johnny for Simek wedding #4, the ultimate complement. Tara (2005), Matt (2008), Laura (2009) and now Jenna (2014). Johnny Only brought state of the art sound and lights, professionalism and personality to every wedding, making every one of them a party to remember.” Dave & Sally Simek
I have been lucky to have had Johnny Only as my DJ for my Bat Mitzvah, Sweet 16, Prom and this year, at my wedding reception. So I know first hand that he is the best. With a vast array of services to offer, any event will be a sure fire hit! His wide variety of music, fun filled repertoire, excellent rapport with all demographics, spectacular uplighting, and professional emceeing skills are top notch and ensure that guests of all ages will have an amazing time at your event. While it may cost you a little more, the end results are definitely worth it. If you want your event to be a guaranteed success, the only way to go is with Johnny!

What makes Johnny Only such a great DJ in part is his experience. He is seamless in his execution. He was able to look at the crowd of people dancing and choose songs that would resonate with that specific crowd. He made sure the guests would want to continue dancing, which in turn encouraged more guests to join in. The result was a natural, festive atmosphere of celebration.
Good afternoon Johnny,
I have worked at Traditions at the Glen for 7 years and you are by far my favorite DJ. I have recently gotten engaged, and am very interested in using you for my reception, at no other place than Traditions at the Glen. I am looking at Sunday October 12, 2014. And I would be interested in the photo booth as well. Thanks and talk to you soon!
Thank you SO much for being our DJ at the wedding! You were amazing!! I truly appreciate your professionalism throughout the whole process and your expertise! Everyone had a great time – thanks in part to your great music selections! Pat and I will make sure to recommend you to any and everyone who needs a DJ 🙂

Thanks for everything and for staying extra time. With the late arrival of the bus I felt like that rushed things and I didn’t get a chance to really just cut loose and relax so that last hour made a HUGE difference. You did such a great job and I got so many comments about how great the music was. You did a great job at mixing in the music we selected with a lot of other great selections. I know it sounds weird but I loved the dinner hour music, it created such a wonderful vibe for everything and hearing some of the songs that I had sent you when I actually got a chance to pay attention was so nice.
Thanks again so much!!!!
I wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did with the photo booth at our wedding!! It was a huge hit. Everyone had so much fun using it and the photos and the quality were amazing. Thank you for the nice book you put together and the disc of all the photos. I have some friends getting married around here in the near future and will be giving them your name.
You truly made the day extra special for Katie and I.
All the Best!!
“Johnny Only is one of our favorites. He is always professional and does a great job keeping the party going. We always love hearing that we get to work with him at a wedding, as we know the reception will be very fun and go smoothly!!!”

“DJ Johnny Only is so nice and professional to deal with. He is one of the most
technologically advanced DJ in the Greater Binghamton area and offers many
more services than just playing music. I have been recommending him to everybody!
I look forward to doing more business with Johnny in the future.”

I just wanted to say thanks for everything at our wedding and reception. It was great and everyone raved about the music and the photobooth. I think you are now booked for my cousin’s wedding, Shannon Curkendall, (or she intends on booking you…) and my good friend Shawna Lindsay will also be in touch soon if she hasn’t already about booking you for a reception following her Vegas wedding ceremony. We will be sure to pass along your information to others who are planning events in the future.
Hello!! I never got a chance to say THANK YOU for doing such a wonderful job!! Everyone had such an amazing time 😀 Also, thank you for the fabulous CD of images. How great it was to look through it all to see everyone’s pictures 😀
It was great working with you!!
***Johnny Only comment: You may have guessed already that the images she is referring to are from the photo booth.

I was at a wedding that you did in July of last year and thought your service was phenomenal and really made the evening special. My daughter is getting married in August of this year and we wondered if you would ever consider doing an event out of town?
Wanted to send a quick thank you for your help last Saturday. Mikayla was astounding. Great music selection that kept the kids dancing and entertained. She was perfect with the national anthem and playing happy birthday. Thank you both!
Also a quick heads-up – mark your calendar for April 4, 2020.
