Chicago Wedding DJ

Let's make your wedding one to remember.

Packed Dance Floors, period!

Packing dance floors with guests of all ages and backgrounds… that’s why we are Chicago's best Wedding DJs! Every couple we work with has a vision for their wedding, and we help bring those dreams to life. We realize how important your wedding is and we take great lengths to ensure a stress-free wedding day experience. From our initial consultation to our easy to use online planning tools, we will cover every detail about your music before the wedding. Our experienced team will help you celebrate your wedding using our modern style and approach.


What makes us the best Wedding DJs in Chicago?

Planning Meetings

Planning a once in a lifetime event such as a wedding can be a daunting task. Luckily enough, we have performed at hundreds of weddings.  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 wedding day success and help you avoid common pitfalls. You will have a final meeting with your Chicago wedding DJ to go over all the details for your event so we can ensure an unforgettable night!


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 wedding. We are not stand up comedians. We are not the stereotypical corny, goofy, game-playing wedding DJs. We only make the necessary announcements or formalities. In addition, we are Bilingual (Spanish) MCs, so we can make announcements in English and Spanish. We understand many of the Latin American traditions at events.

Premium Sound and Microphones

Chances are, you’ve been to a wedding 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 conversation. Even Grandma will be able to hear the speeches, and your friends will love the sound on the dance floor. At every event we provide 2 wireless microphones, so there is no need for the DJ to run across the room to give the microphone to another person. The person who is speaking will be ready once the DJ has introduced them, for a seamless and professional event.


Live Mixing

Not all DJs are the same. We are experienced Club DJs, which means we can bring that vibe to your wedding. This means that we can blend 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 playlist while keeping your guests in on 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 couple first when an out-of-the-ordinary request is made, to make sure you love all of your wedding day music.


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 dance floor experience. The result is a packed dance floor full of smiles.

Reviews of our Chicago Wedding DJ Services

Jesse was simply excellent for our wedding. He essentially acted as a day of coordinator and made sure our reception stayed on schedule. His experience was on display as he was able to communicate effectively with the venue staff to make our wedding reception be our best day ever.

He also blended traditional American style wedding music with Latin music for our Irish/Italian/Mexican wedding perfectly. All of our guests danced the night away.

If you want a professional DJ at your wedding, hire Jesse.

DJ Persist did a phenomenal job to say the least!  We had endless compliments of how he was able to bring different styles of latin music and top hits seamlessly together.  

We even had several waiters come up to us and say that they have never seen the dance floor as packed for as long!

From the beginning Jesse was incredibly professional. My husband and I were thrilled to have him as our DJ!

At our wedding reception he told us to relax and enjoy our celebration because he would take care of the rest of the night.  Jesse worked with us to have a schedule for the night and it went amazing! Many of our guests complimented us on how smooth everything ran.

Jesse KNOWS how to work a room! We had tons of family and friends say this was the most fun they had ever had at a wedding.

​​DJ Persist (Jesse) was absolutely amazing! He provided us with DJ services, a standing photo booth AND a roaming photo booth (which if you have never heard of a roaming photo booth ask, you won't regret it!).

Everything went extremely smooth leading up to the big day even with a venue change due to covid — Jesse was very accommodating and professional.

He paid attention to every small detail and was able to read the room to ensure the dance floor was never empty. The quality of the equipment and his team are top notch. We would not have changed a thing!
