Wow! We cannot thank DJ D Jones enough for the impact he had on our wedding night. I feel like I barely left the dance floor. He is so gifted at what he does, and every one can tell that it is truly his passion. Our party was everything and more thanks to him. He made the process so easy for us and his online planning tools were next level. Communication was always great and we were super appreciative of that. I will be recommending DJ D Jones to everyone who asks, and everyone who doesn’t 😉

DJ D. Jones was great! Had the whole floor dancing all night plus was willing to take requests and be flexible to our needs.

He was amazing!!! The whole process of booking and meeting was smooth, and he was very helpful and patient throughout. I was nervous whether guests would dance on a Sunday afternoon, but DJ Duerell took care of that!!! He had daytime party vibes and everyone loved it!! Our big day wouldn’t have been the same without him!!!

Duerell was a great DJ to work with! He was very flexible with us on our date, very communicative, and he listened to our music requests. He had great taste and picked good songs from our more vague instructions (an hour of ska music). It was a shame we weren't allowed to have a dance floor because Duerell definitely would have gotten people to dance on it! He also did a great job MCing the wedding's first half, and his photobooth was great. Thanks again Duerell!
