We hired DJ Persist for our daughter’s Quinceañera on 9-5-20. The music was amazing and kept our guests on the dance floor. Jesse was very professional and attentive to our guests music requests. The party was so hot that we paid for another two hours. Thank you for an amazing Noche Mexicana!

From the moment we met with Jesse in early 2020, my daughter and I knew he would be the perfect DJ for her quinceañera. Fast forward six months and one pandemic later, Jesse proved our initial feelings correct. He was professional, accomodating and extremely helpful at the party with keeping us on time and our program moving. His production quality and sound was top notch. The music was loud enough to feel like a party, but not so loud where you couldn’t have a conversation with the person sitting next to you. He was great at switching up the music when necessary and anticipating what people would like. The additional screens and uplighting were a great addition to an already impressive setup. He also provided the photobooth, which was again, all quality. Our guests had a great time and the attendant was patient and helpful.
DJ Persist played a major part in making my daughter’s celebration so special. His DJ and people skills make him great at what he does and set him apart from the rest!

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.
