About Dawson Entertainment, LLC

Since 2007, Dawson Entertainment, headed by New England's renowned club DJ, Dj JD, has combined the high energy of a top dance club with a vast musical knowledge, making Dawson Entertainment uniquely qualified to play events for all ages. Mixing the best oldies and todays hottest hits, Dawson Entertainment is New England's wedding authority!

Want to see your DJ in action? Normally it's hard to know just how well a DJ fits your style. Unless you happen to be one of the select few to attend their private events, you never have the opportunity to hear them play live. That's not the case with Dj JD. As the resident DJ at Shrine nightclub, located inside the MGM Grand at Foxwoods Resort Casino and voted Connecticut's best nightclub by Connecticut Magazine, you have the chance to see Dj JD play live every Sunday, Tuesday & Friday. If a dance club isn't your scene, come see Dj JD play every Thursday at Scorpion Bar at Foxwoods where you'll hear all of you favorite Rock 'n' Roll hits.

Playing close to 300 shows a year, it's hard to find another DJ with as much experience as Dj JD. Over those hours of experience Dj JD has perfected his eclectic style, playing parties for all ages and becoming one of the most respected DJ's in New England.

Having studied music production & engineering and graduating from Boston's Berklee College of Music, Dj JD now shares his knowledge and skills with the next generation of up-and-coming DJs by teaching the Turntable Technique class during Berklee's 5-week Summer Program. Along with Dj Jay Spring, Dj JD also helps other DJ's perfect their craft every week on his video blog, www.remixreport.com.

Having inspired many local DJ's, JD has hand selected a few to work with him as business grows, teaching them from the ground up so you know you're getting only the highest quality DJ. Dj John Cardona is a prime example. Only 2 years into his career, John's natural ability to choose the right song and mix smoothly has far surpassed many veteran DJs.

When you hire a DJ for your wedding or event, you want to know you're hiring a professional that will make your party the fun and memorable event it should be. You should be confident in your choice of entertainment so you don't have to worry about a thing at your event.

    The most recommended for a reason!

    When we started planning our wedding, we got so many recommendations for so many different vendors- but every single person we knew pointed us to DJ Dawson. He was amazing!!! Between traditional Greek dancing, some odd song requests, and an enormous bridal party, he had his work cut out for him and he absolutely nailed it. The dance floor was full from start to finish, and I still have people reaching out to tell me how incredible our DJ was. We had an absolutely perfect wedding, and Jason is a huge reason why. We can't recommend him enough!

    Thank you so much! What a fun wedding :) We were so happy to DJ and bring our mirror photo booth. Loved doing the dinner music theme - movie soundtracks based on books, since we were in a library. So much fun! Wishing you the best!!

    Our favorite vendor & best DJ we could have ever hoped for!

    Picking Jason as our DJ was one of the best decisions of our wedding. He is professional, responsive, creative and wonderful to work with. From the start, Jason was incredibly responsive. He asked great questions & really listened to our answers, and we could see that he really understood what we vibe we were going for. His organizational sheets were unbelievably useful -- not only did we feel confident that he was taking our wedding seriously & really knew what he was doing, but his organization helped *us* get even more organized as well! All of this led up to an experience that couldn't be beat on the day of our wedding. Jason's own demeanor and presentation set the classy, fun vibe that we wanted, and his play list made clear that he had really listened to what we asked for, plus added his own creative touch to kick it up even higher. He kept people on the dance floor all night, and has kept us smiling even longer! We cannot recommend him enough!

    Don't Think - Just Hire Jason!!

    As a wedding professional, I started out working with Jason at various venues. I always recommended him to my clients (and still do!) because of his professionalism and his amazing ability to keep dance floors packed ALL NIGHT LONG! When I began to plan my own wedding, there was no question that I wanted Jason to be a part of my special day. He provided sound for my ceremony, DJ services for the reception, and bistro lights underneath the reception tent. Everything was flawless and I had guests - young and old - who commented how amazing it was that so many people were dancing from the first dance to the last. Working with Jason is a dream - he is easy to talk to and he 'gets it'. Provide him with a little info and I promise you that he will deliver - and then some. Music was extremely important to me to set the mood and tone of my wedding and he delivered 150%. Do yourself a favor and lose the stress - just hire Jason and he will make your wedding music dreams come true!

    If you hire DJ JD and Dawson Entertainment, you will have one of the best DJs in the US. Most DJ companies in Connecticut will not endorse another local DJ because of competition. Not only do we at Kenny Q Productions endorse Dawson Entertainment, We are confident enough to admit that we have learned a lot from Jason Dawson (DJ JD) himself. Jason has visited us on several occasions to help us perfect the technique of mixing various genres of music in a way to keep the energy on a packed dance floor. Jason is a master at this. He is internationally known as one of the best that this country has to offer. As a professional that has been providing DJ entertainment since 1984, I truly believe that you are in good hands when you hire DJ JD and Dawson Entertainment. Sincerely, Kenny Quintero Kenny Q Productions
