Jesse is the best
We hired Jesse for our wedding 10/05/2019 and he did an amazing job! We told him what kind of music we wanted to listen too & he did not disappoint! He kept everyone on their feet all night long. I would definitely recommend him!Sent on 10/12/2019

DJ Persist was super professional and a big event saver! Our mariachi was a no-show and they were supposed to play for two hours before him and we’re supposed to play my daughter father dance and he quickly gave me options to pick from so that he can improvise on the fly. The crowd never even noticed that it was not the song I was supposed to dance. He fed of the crowd dancing on what he played next to keep the party going. He never once hyped or advertised his name like other DJ’s do constantly. He was all about us and giving us what we wanted on our special day. Played whatever we asked on the fly and mixed it in perfectly as if it was planned to be the next song. If you are looking for a GREAT DJ that will not disappoint and give you exactly what you want, book him! His photo booth package we got was AWESOME and everyone loved it! It was the talk of the party for everyone. He was setup way before anyone even got there and was ready to go as soon as people started showing up with some background music that was not overwhelming but appropriate. We had great communication throughout the entire time of our wedding planning. Jesse is highly recommended for any occasion and he will come prepared for anything that comes up, we can vouch for that! He is already booked for our daughter’s quinceñera next year.Sent on 07/31/2019

August 24th, 2019 Wedding Celebration
DJ Persist delivered. The dance floor was always packed from start to finish. He helped us with the timeline of our wedding and acted as a wedding coordinator which was a great help. He has special effects our guests have never seen at a wedding before. We would highly recommend him for all friends and family parties moving forward.Sent on 08/28/2019
