Meet Your AV Specialist

Maine Audio Visual DJ Jimmie

Hello, my name is Jimmie Thomas, aka "JT", founder and owner of Maine Audio Visual (formerly Elm City DJ). I'm an experienced A/V Tech, DJ, MC, and KJ for over 25 years. The profession has allowed me to pursue my passion for music,  entertainment , and technology by helping my customer's event be a successful one. I'm a Marine veteran, serving 4 years in California and a brief time in Japan. As you may well know, the Japanese created Karaoke, which means "empty orchestra."  I was first introduced to it in Okinawa and I've been a fan ever since. 


Also, I'm a former actor, with performances in theater, TV commercials, extra and a stand-in work in movies and televison.  This experience has helped me become a skilled Master of Ceremonies, and public speaker. With over 500 weddings and countless other events that I have personally performed, you'll have peace of mind knowing your event will be one to remember for many years to come.

Testimonials

Maine Audio Visual 5-star reviews

"I found myself in a situation where I needed help with A/V equipment availability for my daughter's rehearsal dinner at the last minute.  JT was absolutely super to work with.  He had the equipment I needed and made himself available on short notice to deliver, set-up, and do system checks with my computer.  BTW, the venue was in Bar Harbor, which meant JT had not only had to travel, but also coordinate with the venue around their busy schedules for both installation and tear-down.  Simply put, he's a customer oriented professional who is fun to work with and is down to earth.  On top of all of this, his prices are very reasonable.  It's awesome to find someone like this.  And it's great to work with a veteran, saying thanks for his service.  I highly recommend Maine Audio Visual and JT, especially if you are planning your event from long distance." - Paul W.

"We just had our wedding this weekend and Maine Audio Visual was an amazing service! We decided to make our own playlists instead of hiring a DJ and James delivered all the equipment we needed to make our music happen! I was worried about setting up the equipment outside for our ceremony, but he had everything needed to make it work! He delivered the equipment right to our wedding venue, set it up for us, and took the time to explain the set up and how to use all the equipment. He was also very great with communication, he answered all my emails within the day! Highly recommend using this service!" - Alex W.

"My wife Stephanie found JT's DJ services and we could not be more  thrilled. JT was extremely responsive and easy to work with. He was  flexible in helping us. It ended up raining on our wedding day and he  was able to work well with us to move locations and ensure everything  was set up.   Thanks again, JT!"   - Nehemiah R.    

"Thank you so much for doing our wedding. You really did a great job...and thank you for the "Mahna Mahna Song." It was perfect and it definitely was enjoyed by Matt, along with everyone else! Matt & Maggie H.

"They were very accommodating for a last minute equipment rental, even going so far as to meet us half way to pick up the lighting (which worked very well and for a reasonable price)". - Matt L.

James was incredibly easy to work with. We didn't have a lot of money to work with & he helped make sure we were getting what we needed but also kept it cost effective. He was very flexible with pick up & drop off times (although he does deliver, it was easier for us to pick it up). All in all, we got an excellent piece of equipment for the whole weekend for a very reasonable price. I will definitely be returning here for any more equipment or services. - Tiara M.

Maine Audio Visual Rental helped us to take our event over the top. Detailed instructions, top quality equipment and just a joy to work with. Thank you! - Jenny L.

 They were really great in getting us affordable bluetooth sound equipment for our wedding reception. Would definitely recommend working with them! - Harley B.

Excellent, top notch rental services! Great customer service and great rental products! - Dave B.

For my wedding I knew I was going to DIY most of the music. But given my venue was at a fairly remote location the rental options for audio equipment, mics, ect was fairly limited. I knew I wanted to rent from a place that strictly did audio equipment so I could get the most professional equiptment. After looking into a few options, none of which offered delivery, pickup, or set up I stumbled upon James and Maine Audio Visual. What a freaking treasure he is! Not only were his prices incredibly fair, but he was so kind in adjusting the cost of uplighting (which I hadn't thought I could afford at all) to fit my budget. I rented the equiptment for the entire weekend (Thur-Sun) and he was super prompt to show up Thursday, set everything up admist the wedding decorating madness, and then take the time to show me how everything worked. I am no super tech savvy but his equiptment was new and fantastic to work with. The sound for the ceremony, dinner which took place in a tent, and the dancing in the barn we're outstanding. James was such a nice guy, so easy going, and I'm so glad we worked with him. Would highly highly recommend! - Madison S.

James is the good guy of MAV. He will make your event happen with class and style and great positive karma. He is a gem. - Jon  M.
