As the owner of “A DJ With Class Inc.” and a native of Boston, MA Jim started his career as a Professional DJ and Master Of Ceremonies in 1981. After performing at wedding receptions and corporate events for 7 years in New England, he decided it was time to move somewhere just a little bit warmer!
Jim’s passion for music began at the early age of 10 when he got his first record player (turntable). Eight years later while serving in the Army, Jim was introduced to the art of beat mixing music on turntables by a couple of army buddies from New York. Knowing how to mix music by beat and genre gave him an edge when he started his dj business in 1981.
Jim started out as a club Dj filling in for friends at local area nightclubs in New England and quickly began getting requests to do weddings. His skills as a master of ceremonies along with his ability to pack dance floors with all styles of music and any age group led him to become one of the most sought after djs in his area. He has always been on the cutting edge of wedding dj entertainment. He was the first dj in the Naples, Fort Myers area to bring big screen entertainment and music video to weddings in the early 90’s.
Jim has been a featured presenter at Dj trade shows such as Mobile Beat, Nightclub & Bar and NAMM (Music Merchants Show) as well as written several articles that have been published in industry trade magazines such as: Mobilebeat, DJ Times, KUSA and Nightclub & Bar.
Since settling in Naples, FL in 1988 Jim has performed countless weddings and private events in many of the area’s most popular resorts such as The Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, Pink Shell & Ritz Carlton Resorts. In addition to these resorts, Jim and his company entertain regularly at country clubs like Grandezza, Bonita Bay, Quail West and The Strand Naples to name a few. He has a true passion for helping his clients create events that are Unique, Memorable and most of all FUN!!

“If you want a world class, organized DJ, with an outstanding music selection, A DJ with Class, owned by Jim Dalia, is your wedding DJ!
We decided to not hire a wedding planner. We had reservations, but after our first meeting with Jim, all worries went out the window! We were beyond impressed, and knew we were in great hands!
Jim is creative, high energy, caring, and most importantly organized. Jim went above and beyond to make sure our wedding went smoothly, and was 110% organized every step of the way. He has many, many years of experience and tailored our music selection to all age groups at our wedding…..all 200 guests never, seriously, never left the dance floor until the wedding was over!!!!
In addition to music, Jim did an outstanding, over-the-top, breathtaking job of up-lighting our reception venue. I wanted up-lighting that complemented the venues natural beauty, and Jim 110% exceeded my expectations. Prior to our wedding, Jim took time out of his busy day to meet me at the venue to thoroughly go over every detail regarding up-lighting. When my husband and I first walked into the reception venue for a sneak peek before the guests, we were both blown away!
Words can’t describe how blessed we were to have Jim DJ our wedding. A DJ with Class, is a top-notch, world class, DJ, that I recommend everyone to hire!!!! We will most certainly use A DJ with Class again!!!”
