Jared Wade | Professional Event Host

A graduate of Toast Masters, Indy Improv Downtown alumni and having attended/hosted many interactive Hosting & Emceeing events, his resume on public engagement is quite impressive. Stepping out of the "DJ/Hosting Limelight" for several years to focus on what the future might hold, he met his wife Maggie and they had a son Oliver and most recently a daughter, Ivy.

Living on the west side of Indianapolis, in Plainfield Indiana, Jared and his family have formed roots with the local businesses, schools and multiple organizations. Some of those same groups request Jared by name to host their event because he brings an organic and relational level of communicating to guests, rather than directional, making the connection between Jared and your guests stronger, and conversational. Years of training and working on his "Craft" has made him one of the most requested and sought after Hosts in Indianapolis, as well as surrounding areas.

2014 will mark Jared's 12th year in the wedding and event industry, from DJ to Wedding Consultant and even a stand in Usher sometimes for those weddings that don't quite go to plan. Game Show and Talk Show Host in addition to designing team building events, there is no wonder why once you experience an event with him, you and your group want him back over and over. Through simple, yet profound values, Jared Wade | Professional Event Host has come to be known as not only a top quality Professional DJ service, but also a well known host, comedian and musician.

Jared was great to work with for our wedding. Our pre-event debrief meeting was extremely helpful, as he was able to give suggestions about navigating different wedding traditions with our beliefs and family situation. At the event, he was very skilled at working with the other vendors to make adjustments in timeline, etc. He is great with a microphone, helping direct guests without talking too much or being overly “showy.” We’d recommend him highly; we were very happy with his service at our wedding.

AWESOME is the best word to describe this guy. He is extremely professional and organized. His planning tools and helpful suggestions helped keep us on track and get us to the wedding of our dreams. If you're looking for a DJ for your reception and/or ceremony, no need to look any further. Jared made everything personalized to us and what we wanted, and he made sure all of our guests were having a great time. He'll do the same for you too, so just hire him already!

You really should book Jared Wade Entertainment!!! The. Most. Incredible and amazing DJ. Jared is so professional and so much fun (which are 2 combinations very important to us). From the start of the planning process right up to the rehearsal dinner and wedding, Jared helped us with logistics, the right songs, and any other details we were unintentionally leaving out (neither of us were married before). We first hired Jared for our wedding through a friend's referral and quickly secured him for our ceremony AND rehearsal dinner where he put together an interactive and FUN trivia game. I highly recommend Jared Wade Entertainment and we definitely will hire him again for future music needs.

Jared Wade was a phenomenal DJ and event coordinator! He was so personable throughout the entire process. He took so much time and effort to perfect and make his time with us so special! He helped us plan and organize to the last detail of the special music we wanted and how the day would go not only for the ceremony but for the entire reception! He helped keep everything on schedule and our guests absolutely loved him! His main goal was for our guests to truly enjoy themselves and make our day so special and he did exactly that! We could not have found anyone else as good as him!!! Our family, friends, and my husband and I would HIGHLY recommend Jared Wade to any bride and groom looking for an AWESOME DJ/event coordinator/ and special lighting effects for their special wedding day!

Jared was extremely helpful for us during the planning process! He checked in each month providing helpful tips and asking if we needed anything. During our meetings, he helped us brainstorm and decide exactly what we wanted for the entertainment aspect of our wedding. We had numerous compliments about the sound of our ceremony, which was a major concern of ours since our wedding was outdoors. He also did an excellent job keeping our reception upbeat and fun for all generations! Great experience with Jared Wade Entertainment!!

Jared was great to work with. He was very responsive and super personable. He has a lot of experience and you can tell he enjoys his job. He was very engaged during our planning meetings leading up to our wedding, and had helpful suggestions. He did a good job keeping a crowd on the dance floor (not easy given our guests!) and was a fun MC. The uplighting was also great! My only criticism is that some announcements for the guests were not made in a timely manner during the reception, but aside from that, Jared did a good job.

We are so glad we hired Jared to host our June rehearsal, ceremony and wedding reception! He was extremely professional, very organized and very easy to get in contact with, which I think is a huge key when working with any vendor. He met with us several times and his website was a huge plus in regards to planning.

We hired Jared for our rehearsal (ceremony and dinner) which I highly recommend to any bride and groom. Jared being present for the ceremony rehearsal eased our minds regarding how the actual wedding day would play out. When he mentioned that he could host our dinner and provide entertainment in the form of trivia, we were extremely excited. Our friends and family really enjoyed our rehearsal dinner since it was unique and interactive.

We had a laid back wedding, to which Jared was completely amenable and I fully believe he listens to all his clients and their expectations and makes it their event. Our ceremony and reception went wonderfully and we cannot thank Jared enough!!

My husband and I are SO lucky to have Jared Wade as our Wedding DJ/Professional Host. We planned a 115 person destination wedding in Puerto Rico, and Jared traveled all the way from Indianapolis to help make our day the best day of our lives. Initially, we were going to book a DJ in Puerto Rico, however Jared was recommended to us by several different brides and other professional DJs in the wedding business.

From day one, Jared was extremely responsive, professional, energetic, fun and positive. Jared was easily one of our best vendors to work with. My husband and I had the opportunity to meet with Jared several times before our wedding and each time was a pleasure. It is clear Jared is an expert in his field, extremely talented and conducts his business with such care. He is extremely organized and delivers well above expectation. Our wedding day was magical for not only my husband and I, but for all 115 of our guests because of the environment and tone set by Jared.

Jared has a contagious personality and great sense of humor which adds to his likability factor. He offers thoughtful feedback, yet allows brides and grooms to personalize their wedding day. I would book Jared all over again and recommend him to any bride! Following our wedding, he promptly posted end of night group pictures that were amazing as well as an awesome video blog. We are lucky to have such great footage of our night! THANKS JARED!!!!! Marilyn and Brent

Jared was the perfect choice for us. He went beyond the role of being a DJ and he took the time to really get to know us and what we wanted our wedding day experience to be.
He was extremely professional yet his sense of humor complimented things well. He was great with keeping the events of the ceremony and reception moving and he interacted with our guests to get a feel for what would help them enjoy the evening.
In the end, Jared seems more like a good friend who was there to celebrate with you!!
Thanks so much Jared!!

Jared totally deserves a 5 but I can't get the rate to change.

Jared is an absolute pleasure to work with and was so incredible during our October wedding!!! We interviewed a couple of DJs in the Indy area and Jared's professionalism, organization, ease, and knowledge of the wedding industry blew us away. He was the perfect choice for our big day! We so enjoyed not only getting to know Jared as our wedding DJ, but as a friend we could laugh with and confide in during our wedding planning process. Besides his killer skills and the fact that he seriously didn't miss a beat, I think that's what makes Jared the best DJ and event host out there -- he really truly takes time to get to know couples and their families and their stories. You end up feeling like he's a special part of your wedding and someone you can absolutely trust to make your day go off without a hitch. And he did! Everyone loved him -- he's energetic, charismatic, genuine, and thoughtful. He even worked with my father's friends who wanted to pull off a special surprise serenade for me in memory of my dad. I would recommend him to any bride and groom who want to leave a lasting impression on their guests. DJs are the captain of fun at your reception, and he definitely lives up to it (and then some). Thank you so much Jared!
