Jay Della Valle

Born into the wedding and events industry as the son of formidable entertainment force, Jason Craig, Jay Della Valle has made a name for himself by raising the bar and developing new standards in the entertainment and private event industry for the past 20 years, with over 1500 weddings to his credit.

Jay is an entertainer and performer, through and through. He’s an accomplished Vocalist, Guitarist, MC/Host, DJ, and Event Coordinator who is often hired to do all of these things at the same event. He has cultivated a unique approach to standard entertainment practices by creating a multi-faceted experience that combines live music and musicians with a DJ. During dinner Jay frequently sings and plays an acoustic guitar  sings to the tracks of elegant butter-voiced crooners like Michael Buble, John Legend, and Frank Sinatra.

He also performs in one of Spinners Entertainment’s most popular band, Owls & Lions. With this Acoustic Guitar/Violin/Percussion Trio, clients have numerous options for how they can incorporate live music into their Ceremony, Cocktail Hour, or Full Reception. Their signature sound and style, coupled with their versatile and endless song list, allows Owls & Lions to adapt to any setting, whether it is low key and intimate or one that calls for a packed dance floor.


With Jay at the helm and fully exercising his entertainer skill set as Coordinator/MC/Guitarist/Vocalist/DJ, Owls and Lions is the ultimate Band/DJ hybrid and surely the answer for many customers who seek a fresh and compelling blend of live music and DJ. Owls and Lions was cultivated to satiate the desires of people who are discouraged by the sea of generic, mediocre and often overpriced options that overwhelm the wedding entertainment marketplace. Let’s be honest, MUSIC is subjective. Not everyone has the same tastes. Check & Owls and Lions to see if they are for you.

With or without his band, when you have Jay involved as your Producer/ Coordinator/MC/DJ, you are getting a World Class Entertainer in every sense of the word. He is determined to impress, satiate, and exceed his client’s expectations and make each and every event truly unique and memorable. Don’t just take our word for it. We highly encourage you to read some of his over 2005+ reviews on Wedding Wire and The Knot, as well as watch videos and even engage with Jay on Instagram where he hangs out most.

There is a reason why Jay is continuously requested to perform at Weddings and Corporate Events at some of the most prestigious and well-known venues in New Jersey, New York, Southern California, and Montreal. Some of the most established event planners in the industry exclusively recommend MC Jay Della Valle and his band Owls and Lions. See his videos below and engage with him on Instagram.

When Jay’s not entertaining at someone’s wedding, he’s often recording and performing his own original music or shooting videos somewhere fun.  Learn more about Jay’s original music projects (including Owls & Lions), listen to his music, and watch his videos
