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 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!

Hiring Jared was one of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding and ceremony. He is such a delight to work with. He worked with us to make sure we got exactly what we wanted in a completely non-stressful and fun environment. He got to know us as a couple and then because of this extra interest he takes, he was able to recommend things we didn't even know we wanted. This is all before the big day. The day of, he is amazing. He was instrumental in navigating the flow of our evening. Even when our shuttle bus got stuck under the awning of our venue and dinner was delayed by about 1.5 hours, he quickly took action to rearrange the speeches and video collage we had prepared in such a way that no one even noticed dinner was delayed!! He helps things move smoothly throughout the evening. I also had tons of compliments from guests about how our "DJ" played such great music! My husband and I kept saying, "Ok, after this song we'll go say hi to some more people." But then another epic song came on and we couldn't leave the dance floor! We had the greatest time and so much of that had to do with the enormous amount of skill Jared brings. He really made our wedding day special. Thank you so much, Jared!!!

If I could rate 100/5 stars I would. Yes, Jared is that good. He is the perfect DJ for your wedding. Incredibly professional and he loves making your day a perfect one. When you work with Jared you will forget that he has other clients because he is so focused on you, but then you go on Facebook and you see that he has weddings every weekend. There's a reason why! Jared does a great job feeling out the party and adjusting music based on what he reads. From the first time you meet with Jared you will know you made the right decision. He will walk you through everything you need to know. He puts together a timeline and works through every single detail to ensure a perfect reception. You will work side by side with Jared up until the wedding date and then you turn it over to him and he delivers! There are plenty of other things to worry about on your wedding day. If you pick Jared, DJ is not one of them. Honestly, if pick another DJ you're making a huge mistake. Oh, and his Last Shot photo is the best! Your friends and family will love it too!

Jared was one of the best parts of our wedding day in August! He made the planning process stress-free and delivered on everything we asked for the day of. From the very first meeting he understood our vision and music taste. We added on a lighting package last minute and were very pleased with the atmosphere he created! Jared exceeded our expectations - I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Jared came recommended by an acquaintance who used him for their wedding. Unlike other referrals from friends, this one came with, "this is the guy you want- we wouldn't have changed a thing- it went super smooth!" We met with Jared shortly after and I was impressed with his professionalism as well as willingness to help us with the event plan/timeline. Jared is definitely a pro, but doesn't make you feel dumb when you ask questions. If we needed DJ/event host services again, Jared is the guy.

Jared was a fabulous MC!! He helped us through the entire process of wedding planning and was an asset from the very beginning. At the reception, he provided structure to the night and helped move things along. He also had a wonderful sense of humor on the microphone, but did so without trying to steal the show. From the planning to the day itself, working with Jared was a wonderful experience!

Jared did a great job at our wedding! He helped make the reception go smoothly and provided some comic relief for those unavoidable awkward moments ( like when the garder is too light to fling at your groomsmen and single friends) The music was great and his personality as the mc was friendly and welcoming. Every meeting with Jared was hilarious we were practically crying when we left and they were productive. I would 100% recommend Jared, the dj was imperative for keeping our wedding on time and organized.
