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.

    Wonderful DJ

    DJ John Cardona from Dawson did our wedding and did such a wonderful job. He was so friendly, helpful, organized, and most importantly had all of the music played as planned without a hitch. For dancing he kept it moving and our party was dancing until the last minute. We got so many compliments on him, including a couple of engaged couples even asking for his card that night because they were so impressed. To top it off, they gave us a very sweet wedding gift that was such an unexpected nice gesture. Compared with other DJs in the area the prices were reasonable as well. Thank you, John!!

    Kept The Party Going

    When we were choosing a DJ, we knew we NEEDED someone who was going to bring the party all night long, and DJ JD at Dawson Entertainment most certainly did. He was professional and organized throughout the planning process, even sending us a spreadsheet to fill in and allowing us to share our playlists with him to get ideas of the music we were hoping to play. He exceeded our expectations and kept our guests on the dance floor all night- friends, parents, and even grandparents included! We have been asked multiple times who our DJ was and have gotten many compliments on the music- "there wasn't a bad song played all night!" is definitely my favorite. If you love to dance like we do and are looking for a DJ to make your party a blast, Dawson Entertainment is it!

    Couldn't Ask for More

    Jason was great! All my wedding guests had rave reviews about the music and the dance floor was full all night. He played all of our requests and didn't miss a beat. We used Jason for our wedding ceremony music as well. It all went off without a hitch - the sound was perfect (everyone could comfortably hear, no static). He was responsive, on-time, courteous, and a great DJ! Couldn't have asked for anything more - thanks Jason for making our wedding day so special!

    Kenny Q Productions Wedding DJs

    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
