Jared is not only an absolute pleasure to work with, but also incredibly talented at what he does. You can tell he has a passion for his work and you see that in every meeting you have with him and the attention to detail that he places throughout your wedding. Jared was the... Read More glue that kept our wedding together, from making sure that everything was going on in a timely fashion, to making sure that the dance floor kept moving, he went over and beyond to ensure that we had the perfect day. We were beyond lucky to have Jared as our DJ for our wedding and I would highly recommend him to anyone. I even had guests coming up to me to tell me how wonderful and professional he was which is a huge testament to how truly talented he is. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day and Jared is a huge contributing factor to that.

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...

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!!!!

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!

He helps things move smoothly throughout the evening. I also had tons of compliments from guests about how our "DJ" played such great music!

If I could rate 100/5 stars I would. Yes, Jared is that good. He is the perfect DJ for your wedding. Incredibly professional and he loves making your day a perfect one. When you work with Jared you will forget that he has other clients because he is so focused on you, but... Read More then you go on Facebook and you see that he has weddings every weekend. There's a reason why! Jared does a great job feeling out the party and adjusting music based on what he reads. From the first time you meet with Jared you will know you made the right decision. He will walk you through everything you need to know. He puts together a timeline and works through every single detail to ensure a perfect reception. You will work side by side with Jared up until the wedding date and then you turn it over to him and he delivers! There are plenty of other things to worry about on your wedding day. If you pick Jared, DJ is not one of them. Honestly, if pick another DJ you're making a huge mistake. Oh, and his Last Shot photo is the best! Your friends and family will love it too!
