DJ Persist did my wedding on May 8, 2015. He was recommended to me by a friend who also had him DJ at her wedding. I highly recommend DJ Persist. He was professional, early to the reception, organized and played music everyone could enjoy. He played Spanish music for my family and English music for my husbands family. Look no further! You will be pleased with DJ Persist.


Thanks so much!

DJ Persist DJ’d our wedding on September 28,2013 and it was nothing short of AMAZING. From start to finish his customer service was great. First, setting up the music selection was a breeze. He has a site where we could input our songs or at least the type of music we wanted along with a timeline of the night (when we wanted to cut the cake, bouquet toss ect). He provided some suggestions as far as order of the night (was not pushy at all) and his suggestions worked out better then my plans. He was very professional and personable you can even check out some of his mixes online. When it came to the BIG day everything went so smoothly. Just like he said he would check in to made sure we were ok moving on with (example) the toast ect. We danced the entire night away …my husbands Tux was soaked (even his bow tie) from all the dancing….. Everyone danced all night long to all kinds of music. We got so many compliments on the great music variety (Banda, free stlye, rock, top 40, hip hop all of it). I really thank Jesse for making our Wedding as awesome as it was. I swear he made a special mix for us, I really like free style and I had listed all the songs I really liked… then all of a sudden they are playing all in a row.
He even had light savers for the dance floor! We still get people saying how fun our wedding was. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend him.
He not only provided the music we also had TV screens for the music videos and monogram and up lighting.
