Just had a New Year’s Eve wedding and if it weren’t for Jesse it would have not been as great as it was. We got the fireworks, along with dancing under the clouds and I still get compliments everyday on how beautiful it was. During the whole process he was very attentive and thorough and made sure everything was perfect. His projection screen showed music videos which was awesome and everyone thought it was so cool and different. The dance floor was packed all night and he for sure knows how to read a crowd. Very personable and hands down such a wonderful guy. Can’t thank him enough for such a memorable night we will never forget!!!Sent on 02/01/2020

Excellent dj service for your big event!
DJ Persist is truly AMAZING! We got married 2/15/2020 and we did a good amount of research regarding a bilingual DJ that was going to be able to keep our guests on the dance floor, and Jesse was absolutely able to do just that! He was great along the process responding efficiently to our questions/concerns without hesitation. We couldn't be happier to have selected him to be our MC and DJ for the night! He is responsible and will make sure all is set and ready to go for your big event. Another big plus with him is that he will keep you on timeline- he will ensure your event stays on track with schedule. Don’t look any further- you won't have any regrets! Thanks, Jesse we will keep you in mind for our future events!Sent on 02/24/2020

From the beginning Jesse was incredibly professional. My husband and I were thrilled to have him as our DJ! At our wedding reception he told us to relax and enjoy our celebration because he would take care of the rest of the night. There were soo many little details during the night that he took care of and he always had an eye on my husband and I to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Jesse worked with us to have a schedule for the night and it went amazing! Many of our guest complimented us on how smooth everything ran. He KNOWS how to work a room! My husband and I aren't big dancers but even we got tired after all the dancing we did! We are so grateful to Jesse because we, our friends and family had a blast! We also had tons of family and friends say this was the most fun they had at a wedding =). Jesse thank you SO MUCH!Sent on 01/23/2020
