Jon was extremely professional, responsive and creative. He was super easy to work with during the entire process and made us feel at ease. The platform he uses to organize your songs is amazing and keeps everything organized. Our one request was that he keep everyone on the dance floor and he did just that. Everyone is still talking about how much fun our wedding was. Do not hesitate booking Jon for your wedding.

I wanted to leave a detailed review for Jon since picking out a wedding DJ was one of the trickiest vendor decisions we had to make. Unlike a photographer or florist, it's hard for a couple to "review" a DJ's previous work to get a sense of whether they will be a good fit.
Right from our first meeting with him, we could tell that Jon was a really enthusiastic, positive guy. He fit the personality profile we were looking for in a vendor -- he takes his work seriously, but he doesn't take himself too seriously. He is experienced and opinionated, but in a laid back way that's very easy to work with.
The day of the wedding, he got there early and had plenty of time to setup for the outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. No one reported any issues hearing our officiant or vows despite it being pretty windy near the Maine coast.
For the reception, he was a great emcee, getting the guests fired up for the introductions and our first dance. He had a great selection of songs for the salad course that subtly built up so that the background music was getting higher intensity by the time everyone was finishing up and ready to get on the dance floor.
He blended well-known dance hit into well-known dance hit, so that people stayed on the dance floor and there were no lulls in the action. Once it started getting a little sweaty (the venue had no AC) and people were heading out to the hallway to grab drinks, he kept things going for the family members who stayed out there and used a slow dance song to bring people back out on the dance floor later on, to get it crowded again before the finale. He took the suggestions we had left for artists and wove those in throughout the night so that they didn't feel forced or out of place at all.
He's a fantastic DJ, emcee and wedding vendor, and I have no reservations about working with him again or recommending him to friends or family.

When we first began the wedding planning process, I met so many over the top flashy DJs who constantly tried to sell me their products rather than listening to my needs that we were considering just plugging in an iPod and calling it a night. Then we contacted DJ Jon Strader. He is very professional, considerate, willing to work within your budget, and amazing at his craft. He guides you along the process and provides fantastic advice when asked. We received so many compliments throughout the wedding and reception and we couldn't have been happier. Definitely worth the investment! He's the best!
Jon is one of my favorite wedding pros to work with. He has a genuine personality and his communication is on point; it really makes my job that much more enjoyable.
