About

2021 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

Celebrating over 21 years experience, Jon Strader has had the pleasure of djing countless weddings, private parties, corporate & college events, in-store retail events, & bar / nightlife residencies. Music being his ultimate passion, Strader has also toured the entire world as a guitarist performing on stages in front of 100's to 1000's.

At the very young age of 14, stepping into the entertainment industry has opened so many doors connecting Jon to all sorts of industry professionals. Record labels, clothing companies, photographers, videographers, caterers, planners, production companies, various businesses, the list goes on. This comes to your rescue when needing assistance with your wedding day planning or any other form of event planning.

From several years working for the biggest record store chain in the Northeast, Newbury Comics, to over 10 years as a founding builder for one of the world's leading custom drum makers, SJC Custom Drums, Strader has always strived to pursue his own business in the music world. He now devotes his full time to being a wedding and events dj.

"Packing dance floors through tasteful selections and placement of music is so paramount to any event. I always look forward to seeing how the night pans out. You never know what you may end up playing. I have even had some of my awesome couples choose their wedding date based solely off my availability.. That to me is the most humbling compliment I could ever receive." - Strader

Influenced from the early 50's through the current Top 40, Jazz to Hip-Hop, catering to your crowd is his main focus and specialty. Knowing how important your wedding, party, or event is to you, in return, makes it that much more important to him.

    Fun and helpful

    Jon was a positive presence during the planning phase and on the day itself. He has an infectious smile and was totally competent and professional, and had everyone on the dance floor the whole time. : )

    Amazing experience, even better guy!

    Jon played at our small vow renewal this past June. I thought having a dj at such a small event and with a small group of people could have been a bit difficult getting people to dance, but he was such a hit! We let him choose the music and set the tone/ feel the vibe for the night and everyone was on the dance floor partying. He was super accommodating and genuinely wanted to make us happy on our day and get a vibe for what we wanted/ what our guests wanted to experience. He takes the time to get to know you and not only is he professional and great at what he does, but he's such a nice and happy person to add to your special day! We really liked the music he played for our group and enjoyed him as a fun addition to help us party!
