About Hesson Entertainment

I've been providing DJ services throughout the Washington, D.C. region for over 10 years. We are slightly smaller than many of the others making it possible to plan your entertainment with a more personal approach. Our DJ's are myself (Michael Hesson), David, Tony and Chazon, we never over book ourselves to ensure that we are ready on the day of the wedding with a backup plan in place. Before you book with us you will know who your DJ is and will have an opportunity to chat before deciding. We take every wedding as seriously as if it was our very own. Every wedding is different and understanding that is where we begin our relationship when planning yours.

    Easy Communication and Excellent Service

    Hesson Entertainment did an amazing job at our wedding! Michael was easy to communicate with during our initial planning call (about one year before the wedding) and then in the last few weeks before it. The online system was simple and straightforward and allowed us to make various playlists and update our timeline and specific songs. David was our actual DJ and he did an amazing job! We had a phone call with him a few days before the wedding and it helped me feel very confident going into the weekend--he was friendly yet professional and obviously brought a lot of experience to our wedding. He followed our schedule perfectly and played the perfect mix of music. Our guests raved about the music all weekend long!

    Beyond the easy communication and the high quality service at our wedding, David did two small things that really showed how great he was. First, as soon as my husband and I sat down at our sweetheart table with our dinners, he came by and said "Here's a quick pro tip. People are going to stop by your table on their way to the buffet and talk with you. Eat while you can and whenever you have a minute because they will interrupt you." I really appreciated that tip and he was right--we decided not to talk to each other and just focused on eating most of our plates quickly, and then did not feel annoyed (or hungry!) when people did stop by and chat with us. Second, we had requested no line dances. The last 45 minutes of the reception were a lull on the dance floor and he found us and said "A few people are requesting some line dances. Do you want me to say no or is it ok to play some?" We said it was fine, and I appreciated that he asked because the empty dance floor was stressing me out a little and the Cha Cha Slide got it filled up again. It was nice that he was willing to respect our wishes but also did what he could to make it a fun party.

    Overall, working with Hesson Entertainment was easy, straightforward, and fun. I feel we got excellent service for a reasonable price and had such a fun reception because of David's work!

    I highly recommend Hesson Entertainment for DJ services for any event. We have had Craig several times at our hotel, and he's done a fantastic job of getting everyone moving. The contract process has been seamless and everyone we have dealt with has been prompt and professional. We have used Hesson for high-end client events, weddings, and student groups and have never been disappointed!

    I've worked with Michael on a few occasions and I must say he is a real pro! He understands that the main goal of his job is to make a client happy and the only way to do that besides doing your DJ work on an exceptional level is to interact with the rest of the vendors and namely a videographer and a photographer who sometimes need a head-up from the DJ because the DJ has a leading role. Michael has been truly professional in making sure both the photographer and the videographer are ready. He is very accommodating when it comes to providing a quality sound to a videographer, has an awesome personality and plays beautiful selections of songs. Michael also provides nice uplighting at a very affordable price and as both a videographer and a photographer myself I must say that an uplighting is a must because for such a small fee it makes a huge difference - your video and photos will have a beautiful background and light. I strongly recommend Michael for any type of work and will be happy to work with him.

    One thing I know for sure is that Mike Hesson does an awesome job! With every wedding we've ever seen him at, he has the crowd up and on the dance floor. Another thing I absolutely LOVE that he does is the lighting package! Hesson Entertainment can take an ordinary room to breathtaking in a snap with their lighting package; it's a photographer's dream! (Also, being incredibly friendly and helpful is a huge bonus too!) You can't go wrong when you choose Hesson Entertainment.
