Enjoy a Wide Range of Latin Music

DJ Persist isn't your typical Latin wedding DJ (We won’t stick to playing suavemente or danza kuduro). We update our music selections multiple times a week to keep up with the latest hits. That said, our playlists aren't restricted to whatever is currently on the charts. Depending on your personal preferences, DJ Persist can play mariachi, bolero, Spanish pop ballads, bachata, and romantic salsa. 

Of course, those are just the favorite genres for cocktail and dinner parties. For dancing at a wedding or quinceñera, he can play reggaeton, merengue, salsa, cumbia, pop y rock en espanol, norteña, ranchera, banda, corridos, duranguense, cumbia, tamborazo, tejano, tribal, and more. He'll also play crowd favorites like the Casper Slide, Caballo Dorado, and more at your request.

Electrify Any Party with La Hora Loca

La Hora Loca is one of many Latin traditions we love to embrace at your request. If you're not familiar with La Hora Loca, it's a Venezuelan tradition with some roots in Spain. Spanish for "the crazy hour," La Hora Loca is essentially a party-within-the-party, occurring at wedding receptions, quinceñeras, graduations, and more. 

La Hora Loca is meant to reignite a party through lights, bright colors, props, sirens, and incredible music. We currently offer a Hora Loca package for events with 100 guests, though you can multiply the price of the package per 100 guests to suit larger events. This package includes lots of fun and eye-catching props, such as LED glow batons, glow necklaces, glow bracelets, long balloons, plastic hats, and glasses, plus our CO2 gun! Many of our past clients have done this as an add-on with our LED robot.

We also encourage you to take advantage of our photo booth rentals. Our photo booths can provide lasting memories for you and your guests for years to come. We currently offer three different types of photo booths for you to choose from — the roaming booth, social station, and classic booth. The three have a few major features in common, as they all offer unlimited photo sessions and include an on-site attendant. Compare and contrast the different models to find the photo booth best suited to you, your guests, and your event.

Reviews of Our Bilingual DJ Services

DJ Persist is truly AMAZING! We did a good amount of research regarding a bilingual DJ that was going to be able to keep our guests on the dance floor, and Jesse was absolutely able to do just that! 

He was great along the process responding efficiently to our questions/concerns without hesitation. We couldn't be happier to have selected him to be our MC and DJ for the night! He is responsible and will make sure all is set and ready to go for your big event. 

Another big plus with him is that he will keep you on timeline- he will ensure your event stays on track with schedule. Don’t look any further- you won't have any regrets!”

We were looking for a bilingual English/Spanish DJ that was a native speaker, which was important to us, and a DJ that was knowledgeable of English and Spanish music and blended them well. DJ Persist was our unicorn and we're so glad we found him!!

He did a phenomenal job of doing all of the above, paying attention to detail, mindful of our requests/musical personalities, did an awesome job reading the room/energy and progression of the night, keeping us on task and so much more!


Jesse was amazing to work with for our May wedding! He was extremely professional and had great equipment. Our wedding guests were a mix of ethnicities and ages, and he made everyone happy with the styles of music he played.

On top of his great music selections, he was a great MC (and bilingual which was a must for our wedding!).
