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

Jesse is man for the job!
We were full of a lot of doubt when we started planning our big day, but Jesse was a big help to us by making himself available to start planning all the details leading up to our event. We did not know what to expect going in, but after sitting down with him he was able to help facilitate our wedding by helping us with the programming and layout of the venue. He was a huge asset as he used his experience to put forth the best recommendations so that everything would run smoothly. We were able to sit back on that day and take in the experience with our guest as he was able to read the room and play the music that everyone enjoyed. He was able to get all age groups on the dance floor throughout the night. We couldn't have asked for a better night! DJ Persist is not just the music, he is the whole package!Sent on 11/11/2020
