Jesse was so easy and fun to work with from the very start. He was extremely professional and quick to respond to all our questions. The day of our wedding, Jesse was there on time to set up and took care of everything on his own. He really got our party started, and we had multiple guests say it was the most fun wedding they had been to. I really think the music and dancing made it a great wedding. Thank you so much Jesse!!
We hired JD Entertainment for our 3/25/17 wedding in Canyon Lake and were exceptionally pleased. Jesse's prices were affordable and he was very professional and prompt throughout our entire wedding process. The online song request and timeline tool he provided us with was very helpful and easy to use. We gave him a few songs we knew we wanted to hear (which he played) and for the rest he read the crowd and kept everyone dancing. We called him the day before our wedding and he was actually already at the venue setting up! The lighting, uplighting, and facade he used definitely brought an elegance to our event. We would highly recommend JD Entertainment for any event.
The good news is our guests said our DJ played great music and they had the best time and he was reasonably priced..the bad news is we basically gave him a playlist and felt really stressed as time went on and we got closer to the wedding. We originally gave him a few songs as as ideas of what to play and a couple of songs we didn't want to hear but he requested we add more (20 more to be exact). We ended up with over 2 hours of songs which was plenty of inspiration and he played every song we added. He was late to the meetings we had and 4 days before the wedding he told us he couldn't sing our precessional song. He had a guitarist for the ceremony and he was to sing the precessional song and the song I walked down the isle. So we had to pick a different processional that he didn't sing, just guitar. Overall- it all worked out and like I said, people had a great time. But the amount of stress he gave me prior to the wedding wasn't worth it. I wish he would have given me more confidence. I left our last meeting very worried about how it would all play out, because he never assured me it would be great and I was in good hands.
Jesse was absolutely amazing for our wedding. Last minute, we found out that we needed a separate microphone for our vows, and Jesse was right there to take care of it for us. He took all the requests and made sure that our night was special by following up with all the vendors and our wedding party. Absolutely amazing.
JD Entertainment was the PERFECT choice for us! Jesse was so incredibly kind, professional, and just a joy to work with. He met us at our venue to talk about placement of our uplighting, his equipment, and discuss details of our day. To add to that, his easy to use song request and planning website were great, and he stuck to exactly what we selected. He was so responsive to all communication and was so warm. Our guests commented over and over on what an amazing atmosphere we had at our wedding and we owe all that to Jesse at JD Entertainment! His sweet wife also ran our photobooth for us, which was amazing! I cannot recommend Jesse/JD Entertainment highly enough!
I used JD Entertainment for our DJ, guitarist (for ceremony & cocktail hour), Wedding Planner, and Photo Booth. Everything and everyone was perfect. JD was so responsive and his online portal is really great, you can create must play or do not play lists. We requested some songs that were not on there but he was able to make it happen with no problem. The guitarist was great as well, I kind of let him play what he thought might be appropriate and he really had a great selection. Liz, the wedding planner, was so helpful and professional, she thought of things that I would have never thought of. She listened to what I wanted and made it happen, I did not have to check on anything at all. JD's set up was clean and professional, and all his equipment was in great shape. The photo booth was not a disappointment, either. Props were great and pictures were clear. JD kept the party going all night and Liz kept everything organized. HIGHLY recommend, our wedding would not have been the same without them.
Working as an event planner in the San Antonio and surrounding area for the past five years I have learned the important of having a great DJ/MC for weddings. Jesse with JD Entertainment is very professional, has interactive planning tools on his website and a beautiful clean set up for your wedding. He is helpful from the planning process to executing the event. He keeps the guest dancing and makes the evening go smoothly as he is very involved with following the timeline, working with other vendors and professionally MCing throughout the night. JD Entertainment is a great choice for DJ and live music entertainment for your special day that will keep guest dancing and talking about your event far beyond the evening.
We were married in April of this year when we started thinking about the band we wanted someone who played a variety of music and looked very classy JD Entertainment is just that! I remembered them from a previous wedding we attended. When I contacted Jesse he was very friendly,professional and helpful not to mention very reasonable so we chose him as our entertainment for our special day. We were very impressed he took care of all the things he would need for that day from the electricity to the plugs did his own walk through and made sure everything was where it needed to be to make our day perfect. From the start of the ceremony to the last dance of the night everything went very smoothly and we danced the night away. I would definitely recommend JD Entertainment to any bride and groom you will not be disappointed.
We made a great choice with this DJ! He was very professional, charismatic, punctual, and he offers a very user-friendly website to help you come up with a playlist that will keep your guests entertained. Jesse is very punctual. He arrived before all other vendors and was at our venue about 3 hours before the start time. Trust me, this is a big deal. The last thing you want is to stress out about your vendors making it on time. The DJ was also very professional and accommodating. He made sure to meet up with us a number of times before our big day to ensure we were on the same page with all of the details. As for the website, JD Entertainment offers a user-friendly site where you can tailor your playlists with songs you definitely want to hear during your big day, songs that you want to hear if possible, and of course those you don't want to hear at all (for us we didn't want to hear the chicken dance; not our style). The website also lets you pick what songs you want for those special dances (first dance, groom with mom, bride with father, anniversary dance, and dollar dance). One of the best features of the website is that you can see the top 100 songs in various categories. For example, you can see what songs are trending now (ex. DNCE - Cake by the Ocean) or the top 100 songs of all time. If you forget band names or song names, this feature will save you. The top 100 lists are extremely helpful. I'd highly recommend this DJ for your big day. You won't be disappointed. He's a lot of fun and we were positively surprised by how many guests told us afterwards how "cool" our DJ was and how good the songs were.
Jesse and his team were absolutely AMAZING, far exceeding our expectations. From the start, Jesse was prompt and professional; he is truly an expert at what he does! We utilized his services for DJ/MC work, open photo booth and scrapbook, monogram, and other decor, and we were completely blown away. We'll start with DJ/MC work. Jesse had a great setup on stage, very clean and professional, great sound system and equipment that worked well for a large room with over 200 guests. We got pretty specific on the kinds of music we wanted, and Jesse worked with us so well in making our wishes happen while infusing his own expertise. He was flexible and understanding when we discussed our music choices, and his DJ setlist made the night flow terrifically. Smooth transitions, great song choices, and his top-notch MC skills got everyone on the dance floor and set the mood for the night! The photo booth is an excellent option Jesse has available. Our guests loved getting goofy and taking fun pictures against the sparkly backdrop. Jesse had a scrapbook of the photos included, which was a joy to look at after our wedding. Everything was set up perfectly and it was a big highlight for the evening! Jesse also did some decor work for the wedding, including a lighted monogram which made our dance floor look superbly classy. He handled up-lights and the cake spotlight as well. The room looked spectacular with this decor! Again, I can't speak highly enough of Jesse and his services. The prices are great, and the service is unbeatable. We looked for DJs and bands for a long time and had a difficult time deciphering which ones were good based on some of the reviews. Take my word for it--if you chose Jesse for your wedding, you will NOT be disappointed!
Choosing JD Entertainment was one of the best decisions we did for our wedding. Jessie was so helpful from the start, we knew we were in good hands from when we first met him. We recommend that you choose the wedding packages that they offer they are affordable. We liked that on Jesse's website you are able to pick music all the way up till your wedding. We also had Liz as our week of wedding coordinator. It really was a stress-free week by having her by our side. Extended family loved that not only did she put attention to the bride and groom but she was very accommodating to the extended family. Both Jesse and Liz are very professional and work really well together.
I hosted a quince this past weekend and JD Entertainment provided the music at the Mass and reception/dance. Jesse was professional (on time and well presented) and very patient with me and my guests from the beginning until the very end. The music was wonderful and he had all ages on the dance floor . I highly recommend him.
My DJ, Kyle, was very flexible and did a great job. He worked with many styles of music. The owner, John, will make sure your day runs smoothly.
JD entertainment (Jesse) was the absolutely best. From the start we knew we were in good hands. The client platform set the foundation for the night And He made our ideas come to life. He even helped us in honoring Aaron's mom in the mother/son dance. All we need to say is that our family and friends were on the dance floor the entire night! We gave him our music choices and he made them flow beautifully. We highly recommend him and his services. We now consider Jesse and Elizabeth friends.
Enjoyed working with you!
Jesse and his crew were absolutely amazing!!! I cannot sing their praises enough. They did such an amazing job at my wedding and my guests were absolutely raving about the job they did! I would recommend them to anyone looking for any type of entertainment at an event! They were incredible!!

Blew away my expectations of a good DJReviewed on 10/06/2014 Erika P
Everything about working with Jesse was flawless and amazing and the compliments I received after the reception validate everything I imagined. I was a slower bride in the sense that it took me forever to fill out my paperwork and get everything figured out, but Jesse was so quick to respond, quick to adjust, and paid attention to anything I mentioned. The DJ can really make or break the reception and we didn't want anything that was cheesy or not us, but he definitely provided an amazing reception. My husband and I have different tastes in music and he was able to dip into both without falling off too deep to one side. The planning, communication, service, and end product were all perfect and I can't say thank you enough!
Great DJReviewed on 6/17/2014 Monique O
Jesse was very professional and showed up early and constantly checked in with me leading up to the wedding. He had a great user friendly website that I used to pick all my songs. I also used his classical guitarist, Carlos Sanchez, for the ceremony who was awesome! I did not get to hear him play during the cocktail hour but people kept coming up to me telling me how good he was. Overall great experience! : )
June 29, 2013 WeddingReviewed on 1/09/2014
Mr Deleon provided excellent entertainment for my wedding at the Emporium by Yarlen on June 29 of 2013. His professionalism was always top notch, I was very impressed with this. His web site was easy to use and had a variety of music to choose from. The band had the crowd dancing all night and I received numerous compliments on the diversity of the music he played and the bands performance. I overall was very pleased with my decision to hire this band.
Best Night Ever!Reviewed on 1/07/2014 Sonya g
Jesse was an excellent DJ! He played all the songs we requested through his innovative client site but also incorporated his own expertise to match the songs we picked. Once we started dancing, the party never stopped! All my friends and family had such a great time and raved how much fun they had dancing. He gauged the crowd and played songs that everyone, from older relatives to singles, could move to. So many guests stayed the entire night because they had so much fun shaking it. Jesse provided great advice and was always professional. The best part was his suggestion on how to make the wedding party entrance memorable and fun. We knew we would have a beautiful wedding, but Jesse truly helped to create a fun, energetic environment for our guests! Mike & Sonya
unforgettable DJ....you will be happyReviewed on 6/03/2013 monica c
Jesse is a phenomenal DJ, I can't be too effusive in my praise of him and his work! He's very professional, easy to talk with, & and flexible: he assisted & interacted well with the photographer and day coordinator - both in the planning process and on-the-fly during the event. Both photographer and wedding coordinator were very pleased working with Jesse. The music selection was awesome; everyone was dancing having a great time. Jesse was able to the read the crowd and play the right type of music to keep everyone on the dance floor. Not many DJ can remix music as noted in other weddings I have been to. Jesse was able to calibrate great mixes. We have gotten only positive comments from our guests about the music. Jess was amazing to work with and I highly recommend him as a DJ. I promise you will be happy with his work. Monica & Jose
UnpreparedReviewed on 4/23/2013 Chelsy L
When I was talking to Jesse before booking my wedding with him, I informed him that I'd be getting married at the waterfall at Canyon springs Golf Club and that there probably wasn't going to be a power source there. He assured that it would be fine and that we could still have music for my ceremony. I think a day or two before the wedding I warned him again, and he starting asking about a power source and wanted to talk to the coordinator at the venue. Assuming he would figure it out once I told him that there really was no power source available, I brushed it off and went about with our rehearsal dinner as he was at another wedding anyways busy. But of course the morning of he didn't have wireless equipment and my father had to shovel out another 200$ to rent the venue's equipment so we could have speakers and music. Other than that major issue, Jesse was a fine DJ, he announced really well and we had no other issues.
