this Long Branch entrepreneur saw a lack of one-vendor unification of lighting, music, and other technical aspects of event production, so he got to work

Jason Jani, in founding SCE Event Group in Long Branch, filled a hole in the event marketplace by doing what, remarkably to him, no one in the Garden State had attempted before—combining disparate elements of event organization typically obtained only through a variety of vendors (DJ, video shoots, photo booths, lighting, and special effects) and unifying them under one brand. Among his innovations is the state’s first 360° Spin Booth, in which event participants have video cameras circling them, producing a singular effectmore typically seen in sports or other high-end

A sought-after DJ in the private, industry, and VIP event world, Jani does events all over the world for celebrities, athletes, musicians and private companies. He’s often referred to as “the DJ’s DJ” among those in the know, and has been featured on TV, podcasts, and radio, and profiled in books, magazines, and online
publications. His gig list includes events for Martha Stewart, Jimmy Kimmel, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Ariana Grande, Paul Oakenfold RedFoo from LMFAO, and DJ Jazzy Jeff, as well as for reality television stars like Melissa Gorga and the cast of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
