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

Top DJ in Chicagoland Area
DJ Persist was simply AMAZING! He DJ’d my wedding on Oct 17 2020 and he had the entire group dancing all night. His professionalism made our wedding day so special with no hiccups he knows all the cue’s and makes the day ultra smooth. Overall 10/10 will hire again!Sent on 10/20/2020

A Dream Come True
DJ Persist (Jesse) was absolutely amazing! He provided us with DJ services, a standing photo booth AND a roaming photo booth (which if you have never heard of a roaming photo booth ask, you wont regret it!). Everything went extremely smooth leading up to the big day even with a venue change due to covid -- Jesse was very accommodating and professional. He payed attention to every small detail and was able to read the room to ensure the dance floor was never empty.
The photo booth was a hit but the roaming photo booth was even better. People are STILL talking about it today how unique it was and how they can text the photos to their phone. The attendant even did a "boomerang" of throwing the bouquet and going for the garter.
The quality of the equipment and his team are top notch. We would not have changed a thing!
We really want to give a big THANK YOU to Jesse and his team, we HIGHLY recommend their services to anyone who asks!!Sent on 10/29/2020

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

Amazing DJ for our wedding!
Jesse provided both DJ services and a photo booth for our November wedding. We are so happy we worked with him on our special day! The dance floor was lively and full of guests all night long, which was one of our biggest hopes for the big day. My husband and I come from mixed backgrounds, and he ensured everyone felt included out on the dance floor. Leading up to the big day Jesse was very responsive and his online tools made it easy to plan everything out. His photo booth was also a lot of fun, and we loved the ability to create a customized design. He sent over the full library of photos within a few days of the wedding, which was a great way to relive the fun while everything was fresh. We definitely recommend working with Jesse for professional service, and a reception everyone will remember!Sent on 12/17/2019

October 19 Wedding
Jesse made our wedding incredibly special and easy run. He made us not have to worry about anything and it went so smoothly. Besides the fact that he’s well organized he also is a great dj and knows exactly how to read a room. Would recommend and look forward to booking him again for other events.Sent on 10/23/2019

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

DJ Persist kept us dancing all night- he was AWESOME!
This review is exactly 1 year late (7.13.2019), how embarrassing! DJ Persist (Jesse) and his team were beyond amazing helping us with cocktail hour music, MC'ing the whole reception and keeping us on task/on time, of course DJ'ing, and the photo booth on our wedding day! We were looking for a bilingual English/Spanish DJ that was a native speaker, which was important to us, and a DJ that was knowledgeable of English and Spanish music and blended them well. DJ Persist was our unicorn and we're so glad we found him!! He did a phenomenal job of doing all of the above, paying attention to detail, mindful of our requests/musical personalities, did an awesome job reading the room/energy and progression of the night, keeping us on task and so much more! DJ Persist is warm and had great energy! We felt so comfortable with him and were confident from day one that he was going to do an excellent job on our wedding- and he did! He surpassed all expectations and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Throughout the planning process and day of he was great with communication, organization, artistry and creativity! We appreciate him working with our vendors and day of coordinator! DJ Persist, THANK YOU SO MUCH! You are awesome and, as you saw, once the dance floor opened up, I couldn't stop dancing! We cannot recommend you enough! Below you'll find a picture from the photo booth. The photo booth, the attendant, the quality of the equipment and ways to personalize it were great! THANKS AGAIN, Jesse!Sent on 07/13/2020

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

DJ Luniks, you the best!
When I was stressed Danny aka DJ Luniks was a big help and I couldn't have been happier with how he helped smooth everything over for me. He really helped me a lot that day and I couldn't be happier the music and everything was perfect. Thanks again!Sent on 07/07/2019

Jesse was amazing to work with for our May wedding! He was extremely professional and had great equipment. Our wedding guests were a mix of ethnicities and ages and he made everyone happy with the styles of music he played. On top of his great music selections, he was a great MC (and bilingual which was a must for our wedding!).Sent on 07/12/2019
In addition to his DJ services, Jesse provided a photo booth with an attendant and it was a total hit with all of our guests! I would highly, highly recommend working with Jesse.

The Perfect Wedding DJ
Jesse was absolutely amazing to work with. He constantly coordinated with us throughout the planning process to make sure everything was going smoothly and had a final call the week of the wedding to go over everything. As soon as the reception started, Jesse was on top of everything and made sure everything got done. As far as the music, the dance floor was packed all night. From the first song when the dance floor opened up to the very last song, the dance floor was full of our guests. He did a great job of mixing in traditional Latin music/dance music/ oldies to keep everyone involved. One of the things I will always remember about our wedding was that as the last song finished, I turned around and saw just about everyone still on the dance floor. I would absolutely recommend DJ Persist to anyone looking for a wedding DJ.Sent on 03/02/2019

Dance Floor Packed
Dj Persist had our wedding guests on the dance floor all night long (which is honestly one of the top 3 most important things I wanted for our wedding). We had quite a mix of guests as I am Hispanic and my husband Italian- and he was able to read the crowd well all night and make sure everyone stayed dancing. He played all different genres that appealed to everyone and it all mixed great together. A week later, and we are still hearing about how great the music was and how packed the dance floor was all night which makes us so so happy to hear. Jesse was professional and always very quick in his responses to our emails. His website is very user friendly and helps organize everything very well for the timeline. Loved it and highly recommend Jesse for your parties/wedding!!!Sent on 03/02/2019

Awesome wedding DJ
Jesse did an amazing job for our wedding in September 2018. He was super attentive to our needs and kept us on track with our timeline. Most importantly, he kept everyone dancing and having a great time. We were especially grateful that he stepped in when we had a no show with our mariachi band. Everyone loved the music and energy that we are still receiving compliments. If you're looking for an awesome dj, look no further as he is the best!Sent on 01/20/2019

We would hire DJ Persist all over again
We found DJ Persist on a recommendation from our photographers. They could not speak highly enough about him. He was fantastic. He was professional, timely, & he absolutely knows how to read a crowd.Sent on 10/26/2018
From our first meeting to our wedding day, DJ Persist put us at ease with his professionalism. He provided us with online tools to help him with our requests for day-of music and our planned schedule. He then managed to tie our wedding day together with his great MC skills, his amazing sound system, and by being on his A-game. Our guests repeatedly told us how much they loved our DJ. He kept the energy up the whole evening with our diverse crowd. We would highly recommend hiring DJ Persist for an event.

Great service and customer service!
My husband and I hired Jesse for his DJ services and photobooth more than a year before our wedding. He was professional and thorough throughout the planning process and the wedding. Any question or request we had, his follow up was quick. For the service that he provided, his pricing was a steal! He gave us a tool where we can put our music requests and timeline which we found really helpful. He even created a slideshow for us for the dinner portion!Sent on 01/18/2019
We used him for our ceremony as well. Our guests loved him; he played some instrumental hip hop while they waited for the procession to start. He made sure everything ran on time for the reception as far as speeches and dances. Our guests loved the photobooth and he kept them dancing all night. Our wedding had a diverse guest list due to my husband being Polish and me being Mexican but Jesse had everyone dancing. He even played some polka as a last minute request. We would highly recommend Jesse! You will not be disappointed.

Jesse was amazing! He was very responsive to all of our requests leading up to the day of the wedding. He helps you stay organized by setting up an events page where you can lay out the sequence of events. The night before the wedding, I made a last minute decision to do a first dance song with my mom while having a video of my dad playing on screen, and he made it happen flawlessly. Tear jerker for sure! All in all, it was a perfect night and it had a lot to do with his talented skills- the dance floor was always full!Sent on 08/20/2018

Jesse (DJ Persist) had great communication throughout the entire process from start to finish. Danny was actually our DJ on our wedding day, and we had arranged to meet Danny and Jesse at the same time 2 weeks before our wedding. Both Danny and Jesse were very professional and they were fully equipped day of. Everything went very smoothly - names were pronounced correctly, the correct songs were played, and Danny read the crowed perfectly. We received tons of compliments on how amazing our DJ was. Several of my pregnant girlfriends were in attendance and they all told me we had the best DJ and that it was the best sober wedding ever. I would definitely recommend!Sent on 07/27/2018
