My wife had been looking for DJ's online for a few days and came across Jared's website. He had some of the highest reviews in Indianapolis and from the moment we met with him, it was easy to see why. Jared's professionalism is unparalleled and his genuine excitement for his... Read More clients is infectious. Over the course of 8 months we met with Jared several times and had a few conference calls to go over our ideas for our big day. Jared's consultative approach to our wedding made us feel comfortable with him, like he was a friend we had known for years. He shared some out of the box ideas for the reception that we put into use and were a big hit! And on the day of the wedding he made sure our timeline was followed to the minute and added his own personal style to being MC of the reception. Jared was our favorite vendor to work with and to be honest became more than just another wedding vendor in our time spent with him. We trusted Jared to do a fantastic job and we couldn't be more pleased with our experiences. I would DEFINITELY recommend Jared Wade for all your DJ and MC needs at any type of event.

Wow!!! Jared met and exceeded our expectations beyond words!!! I couldn't believe the level of customized service he provided for a reasonable price. He made our wedding amazing!! Everyone absolutely loved him and we got countless compliments on his DJ skills. He spent over an... Read More hour with us before the wedding going over our song selections and making sure everything was perfect. He took the time to get to know us as a couple and personalized everything for us. On the day of the wedding, he was there early and ready to go well in advance of the start time. He is such a professional and did an absolutely fantastic job!! I would give him a million stars on this review if that was an option because five stars doesn't even come close to recognizing the exceptional service he provides. He had the guests entertained all night and he did it in a way that was not intrusive or bothersome. He kept everything running smoothly and made our day into the dream wedding my husband and I envisioned!!! I would recommend him to anyone looking for THE best DJ in the country!!!! To Jared: THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts! We appreciate every little thing you did for us!!!

Jared is an absolute pleasure to work with and was so incredible during our October 2015 wedding!!! We interviewed a couple of DJs in the Indy area and Jared's professionalism, organization, ease, and knowledge of the wedding industry blew us away. He was the perfect choice for... Read More our big day! We so enjoyed not only getting to know Jared as our wedding DJ, but as a friend we could laugh with and confide in during our wedding planning process. Besides his killer skills and the fact that he seriously didn't miss a beat, I think that's what makes Jared the best DJ and event host out there -- he really truly takes time to get to know couples and their families and their stories. You end up feeling like he's a special part of your wedding and someone you can absolutely trust to make your day go off without a hitch. And he did! Everyone loved him -- he's energetic, charismatic, genuine, and thoughtful. He even worked with my father's friends who wanted to pull off a special surprise serenade for me in memory of my dad. I would recommend him to any bride and groom who want to leave a lasting impression on their guests. DJs are the captain of fun at your reception, and he definitely lives up to it (and then some). Thank you so much Jared!
