Packed Dance Floors, period!

Packing dance floors with guests of all ages and backgrounds… that’s why we do this! You have a vision for the entertainment at your party or event, and we bring those dreams to life.

From our initial consultation to our final planning meeting, we will cover every detail before your event. Our experienced Chicago party DJs will help you celebrate your event using our modern style and approach.


What makes us different?

Planning Meetings

Planning an event such as a quincenera, birthday party, or a prom can be a daunting task. Lucky enough we have performed at hundreds of events, we’ll share our wisdom with you (because we’ve learned a lot over the years) while always giving you the final say. We can assist you on your planning journey by laying out the road to your event's success and help you avoid common pitfalls. You will have a final meeting with your DJ to go over all the details for your event so we can ensure an unforgettable event!

Event Coordination

Not only do we play GOOD music during your event, but we help facilitate every detail on the day of the celebration to ensure a smooth experience throughout your entire event. We are not stand up comedians. We are not the stereotypical corny, goofy, game playing, type DJs. We only make the necessary announcements or formalities. In addition, we are Bilingual (Spanish) MCs, we can make announcements in English and Spanish. We understand many of the Latin American traditions at events.

Live Mixing

Not all DJs are the same. We are experienced Club DJs, which means we can bring that vibe to your event. Why does that matter? At your event this means that we can put together all of your favorite songs from various genres with seamless transitions, packing your dance floor and providing an unforgettable dance celebration. Our DJs read the crowd and work hard to ensure all your “Must Plays” make it to the floor while keeping your guests included in the action. We are always open to requests from your guests and will make their song choices included in our mix, but not if they request the "hokey pokey" .(we will check in with the client first when an out of the ordinary request is made)

Premium Sound and Microphones

Chances are, you’ve been to an event where the music has been too loud, too low, or too distorted. We utilize high-end line-array sound systems with subwoofers, which means that our systems can cover small to large reception areas easily without overpowering guest conversations, your guests will love the fullness on the dance floor. At every event we provide 2 wireless microphones, in case there are multiple people speaking

Dance Floor Lighting

We include dance floor lighting with every package. Our lighting system is synced to the music which creates a fun atmosphere for your dancefloor experience, the result is a packed dance floor full of smiles.

Online Planning System

Gone are the days of paper and pencil (unless you ask for it, we can provide print versions!). Our booking and planning process can all be done online from signing your contract, sending payments, to accessing our planning tools

We hired Jesse for a non-profit event being held outdoors in the middle of January in Chicago. Jesse didn’t blink an eye and provided amazing sound equipment that was able to cover a huge open area. His music selections and the sound quality added to the overall energy and success of our event. Thank you for easing the stress of a last minute and potentially high-stress event.

I have to say DJ Persist is by far one of the best DJ/Entertainers I have worked with in a long time. I have thrown several events and have worked with a variety of DJs and he was by far the most professional and easy to work with. He kept the party going and played great music. He was open to feedback and ensured he met our expectations. Truly enjoyed working with him and will definitely be hiring him AGAIN!

Gina Mejia Gaona

DJ Persist was super professional and a big event saver!  He fed off the crowd dancing on what he played next to keep the party going. If you are looking for a GREAT DJ that will not disappoint and give you exactly what you want, book him! His photo booth package we got was AWESOME and everyone loved it! It was the talk of the party for everyone. He was setup way before anyone even got there and was ready to go as soon as people started showing up with some background music that was not overwhelming but appropriate. Jesse is highly recommended for any occasion and he will come prepared for anything that comes up, we can vouch for that!
