Great DJs

From start to finish, Jump Start was just plain awesome! Their customer service went above and beyond. Chris, the owner, actually called me back while on vacation. It was obvious that our DJ, Lucas, loves his job. He was friendly, helpful, enthusiastic, and really did his very... Read More best to make sure that our reception was fun. At the end of the night, he asked me if it was everything I had hoped it would be. It really was and more! Thanks so much for the work you did to give me such a wonderful reception. You rock!!


Lucas MADE the wedding reception!

Chris, the owner, and Lucas were exceptional. Very responsive to our specific requests leading up to the day, very professional in their execution, and very reasonably priced. Originally we signed on for just the reception, but then needed a ceremony DJ and he was able to... Read More accommodate that request. We also had a lot of specific instructions with music that we supplied ourselves (Disney wedding) which he followed superbly. He kept the energy up - we couldn't believe how many people were still on the dance floor at the end of the night - well over 60% of the guests were on the floor (having been at many many other weddings this year, that seemed like a big number to me)!


GREAT Dj!

Jump Start Djs were wonderful to work with! Chris and the DJ for our wedding (not sure his name but it was Dec. 28 in Mt Pleasant) were absolutely WONDERFUL! So professional and kept the night moving along! I really liked how the song list and itinerary were online – very... Read More helpful!

Chris was absolutely amazing!

I highly suggest Jump Start DJ's. Their team is great at communicating and confirming all the details for your day. They also have a nicely organized website where you can request all your songs and plan out your timeline ahead of time. On our wedding night, the DJ assigned to... Read More us (Tim) really kept the party going. He was flexible with any changes we had throughout the night, was very entertaining, and the quality of the sound system and music he played was great! I had numerous people come up to me to tell me how impressed they were with Tim and requesting his contact information. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ for my wedding or better communication with the owner, Chris, behind the scenes. Thank you!

Chris Delgado, owner of Jump Start DJ's was our DJ for our ceremony and wedding at the Grand Rapids Public Museum. He absolutely made our day complete and did such an amazing job! We were so thankful for all that he did and the event turned out just perfect! Also, when he was... Read More playing his guitar and singing live, people were amazed!!! Chris did such a fantastic job and would highly recommend him to any bride!

I really enjoyed working with Jumpstart DJ's. They saved me when our original DJ bailed on us for our wedding.

We used Jump Start DJ's for our photobooth at our wedding, and it couldn't have been better! Our technician Dylan was funny, personable, and helpful at all times throughout the wedding. The booth was HUGE (We had upwards of 10 people in there at a time!) and there were a ton... Read More of props to choose from. The cherry on top is that you get both an album with all of the pictures that were taken (they come out as doubles, so guests get one and we get one), as well as a USB drive with all of the pictures digitally! I highly recommend using them for your Photobooth!

Jumpstart DJs made my reception absolutely amazing! The music they chose was perfect for my husband and I and they were very open to any changes throughout the night. The photo booth was also definitely a hit for the evening!

Jump Start DJs is absolutely incredible! My husband and I chose them to DJ our wedding in June and we made a great decision. We live in Florida and had our wedding in Michigan where I am from. From the first meeting to our wedding reception, Jump Start was 100% professional and... Read More made us feel relaxed and excited for our wedding. JS helped us stay organized by providing a planning chart, song list, and event timeline that was easily accessed online. Through their wide variety of songs we could select what we wanted played at our rustic, vintage themed wedding. JS contacted my husband and I during our engagement to keep in touch and get a feel and understanding for how our reception would be run. The day of the wedding, Chris was our DJ. Chris arrived at the venue in a timely and organized fashion. He set equipment up, took equipment down, and was our MC for the evening. Chris took charge and allowed us to enjoy our evening WORRY FREE!!! Not only did we have a blast at our wedding, but our guests did too. When the night ended no one wanted to leave, everyone wanted more! I highly recommended Jump Start DJs for any event!! Did I mention Jump Start is extremely affordably priced! Thank you Chris, Thank you Jump Start!

We loved having Jump Start DJs for our wedding reception. We had a DJ as well as the photo booth, and both were awesome (if you're on the fence about getting a photo booth or haven't considered it, definitely do it!). Chris was really flexible and easy to communicate with... Read More throughout the whole process, and always very helpful. We were able to pick "love", "like" and "do not play" songs on their website, which was convenient for us. It took a little bit to understand how the site worked, but was overall a nice feature. Our actual day of DJ, Tim, was really good about working with us. I was able to text him with last minute requests the week leading up to the wedding, which was great since we had plenty of other things stressing us out that week. Tim did a great job of keeping the reception moving along smoothly, and improvising when needed. Our photo booth was a hit with our guests, and we loved that we got full size digital copies of all the pictures that we could share with everyone. It was also nice that they brought along a box of props (there were a LOT) to use in addition to the ones we had. It would have been helpful for us to know ahead of time that they were providing them, but it was okay since we had some pretty funny ones we were excited to have out (shake weight from goodwill, who would have known it would be such a hit). Overall, great experience! Wish we could do it over again.

I was very happy we selected Jump State DJs for the music during our reception. Chris Delgado, the owner, made everything really easy—and he went above and beyond to search high and low for a specific song for my now-husband. Our actual DJ, Tim Podmore, was equally wonderful,... Read More calling me to cover all of the details ahead of the wedding and being incredibly flexible when items came up during the duration of the reception. A few criticisms: Several songs that I requested to play via the form online were not used (not a deal-breaker, but I had put effort into selecting songs!). Also, my father was called the wrong name when announcing the father/daughter dance. While the DJ immediately corrected himself and apologized, it was a little disappointing. Nonetheless, I'd hire Jump Start DJs again for their customer service and adaptability.

Yes, sometimes even DJ's get tongue-tied, and after 32 years in the wedding business we've come to realize that we are in fact, human. Attitude is everything, and if we make a simple mistake, we have to correct it, apologize, and move on for the... Read Less Read More

We loved our DJ, Nick! We filled out forms through their website before the wedding to explain our schedule and what vibe we were going for. Nick called us ahead of time to also get a feel for the vibe of the wedding. Let me just say he NAILED it .My husband and I are late 90's,... Read More early 2000's kids, and the dance music he chose for us and our friends was perfect. I also explained that my older relatives would like some Frank Sinatra type hits, and he managed to weave both musical styles together seamlessly. My only regret is that I didn't tell him that we had paid for a plate of food for him, so I'm hoping he got a chance to eat! Always feed your DJ!!!
