Welcome To Occasional Sounds Entertainment
Hi, my name is Jay Silverstein. Welcome to OccasionalSoundEntertainment.com. I founded Occasional Sound Entertainment (OSE) in 1996 because I was passionate about music and entertainment. I was also keenly aware of the importance it played in the success of life’s most important events such as weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, family reunions, sweet 16 parties, and more.
Since then OSE has played a vital role in helping thousands of tri-state area residents create lasting memories for themselves and their families and friends.
All of our DJs are true professionals who are committed to keeping abreast of the latest musical trends and using only state-of-the-art sound equipment. As such, OSE has more than earned its stellar reputation as one of New York and New Jersey’s top entertainment companies. For example, we are proud to be the preferred vendor at the Spring Lake Manor, PNC Reception Center and other world-class venues.
Moreover, Occasional Sounds Entertainment has been awarded the prestigious Bride’s Choice Award for five consecutive years and we’re thrilled to have received over 100 5.0 review ratings
Please feel free to explore this site and check out our many services. We understand that choosing the right entertainment company for your special event can be difficult so please don’t hesitate to call me personally at 732.597.2799 (or toll-free at 800.920.5056) if you have any questions or would like to learn more about how we can help you with your big day.

Jay Silverstein – Owner/Entertainer
Jay’s phenomenal talent, naturally warm personality, charming sense of humor and natural ability to perform has earned him the respect of his clients, peers, and colleagues and resulted in a stellar track record of success in the entertainment business since 1996.
His passion for entertaining and music was ignited when he was as a young child played drums and sang in his school’s chorus. Eventually, Jay was encouraged to enroll in a training course by a DJ who saw him dance and motivate guests at his friend’s wedding. He did so, and in less than two years, he founded Occasional Sounds Entertainment.
Jay has entertained at some of New York’s most iconic locations including The Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island, The World Trade Center and The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. Moreover, Occasional Sounds Entertainment has been awarded the prestigious Bride’s Choice Award for two consecutive years and has earned over thirty (and counting) 5.0 Bride’s Choice Wedding review ratings.
Under Jay’s leadership Occasional Sounds Entertainment continues to refresh and expand their repertoire of unique and innovative services without sacrificing the outstanding personalized services their clients demand… and deserve. These efforts have earned OSE a reputation as one of the premier entertainers in the DJ services industry today. But hang on to your hats, because this is just the beginning…

I’m writing to thank you again for a wonderful prom. You made last year’s prom great – and this year was equally fun and successful! We brought you back for the senior prom because junior prom was such a great night. And you made this prom the perfect senior prom. We couldn’t be more pleased. And all student feedback on the evening has been glowing.” Thank you! –Renee Schneider, Earth & Marine Science Teacher, Raritan High School
I wanted to take a minute to thank you for the stellar job you did in helping my wife celebrate her 40th Birthday. It is a day she and our guests will remember for a long time. I have had repeated compliments on the party, specifically the DJ. So your professionalism did not go unnoticed. Not only was the music great, but your Emcee skills were entertaining as well. We look forward to booking you for our next event. I already have, and will continue, to recommend Occasional Sounds Entertainment. Thanks again.–Ted Bianchi
Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding so perfect. We had such a great time and it was such a perfect night! We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ – We really didn’t want the night to end. Thank You!–Michelle & Doug
