JD helped us make our wedding day unforgettable. We hired him to be in charge of the music at our ceremony (outside) and up-lighting and music at the reception (located 45 mi away from each other). He had lots of great ideas on how to make our wedding day unforgettable and mostly an elegant and classic celebration. He always was helpful in finding solutions with whatever circumstance that had arisen (that were both planned and unplanned). It was great working with JD, who is a true "Master of Ceremonies," and we are so glad we spent the extra $$ for having him help us plan the timing of our big day/ provide up-lighting/ providing music and making sure everything ran smoothly.

My husband and I live in Seattle but got married in northern WI. We weren't sure what to do about reception music, since it seems like a lot of DJs in that area include oldies, slow dances, & country, and that's not really our style. We found JD @ Midwest Entertainment through WeddingWire.

We had an initial in-person meeting with JD when we were visiting the area over Christmas (everything else was done through email and Skype). After that meeting, we felt really confident in his abilities and professionalism.

JD offers a host of services, but we just wanted a pretty basic dance party. We also asked him to record our string quartet playing during the ceremony, and he was happy to oblige.

Overall, he did a stellar job. Of all our vendors, he was the one we had to worry about the least. He was super organized and seemed to "get" us. He kept people on the dance floor all night, and did a great job of reading the room. Over a month later, we're still getting comments from our guests about how well JD did. Money well spent!

J.D. was amazing and he was always on top of things. There were a few hiccups the day of the wedding (my fault of course) and Jd was always there with a back up or an alternative approach! He made the day go so smooth. Weeks go on and I still hear about how wonderful everything was and how professional the D.J was. :)

JD was both our DJ for the evening and the master of ceremonies. He was more than prepared upon our initial meeting, providing us with great ideas, a typical timeline of events, and suggestions for any vendors we may have needed. Each additional meeting he continued to provide great suggestions and feedback, while allowing us to make every decision that we thought would be best.

The night of the wedding many guests came up and complimented us on his service and etiquette. We asked him to play songs that would keep the guests dancing all night long, and our dance floor was never empty!

JD is very easy to contact and get along with, and went above and beyond to make this day truly memorable! A few of our guests even came up and asked for his information so they could use him for future events. We also made use of his uplighting service, which added an additional 'pop' to our reception! We are extremely pleased with his services as our DJ and highly recommend him.

Where do I even start, having Jd as our dj was the best decision we made throughout our entire wedding planning process. Not only was he our dj, I felt that he was the one person that kept me sane an basicaly made our entire wedding run smoothly throughout the whole day. For example, at our rehearsal Friday night before the wedding our sound tech didn't show up, Jd brought his own equipment so we could still do walk through with the music. Also, Jd was willing to scan all of our pictures in to make our slide show because we had difficulty at sams club. He went through all the hassle to make our slide show amazing from baby pictures, to growing up, an us as a couple. Jd truly went above an beyond to make our day so special, from the love story, to the up lighting, the slide show, the games, and much more. Midwest entertainment is not just traditional dj he shows so much professionalism and pride in his work. He goes out of his way to drive an meet with couples as many times as they wish to make there day extremely special. He has so many unique and creative ideas, such as the VoiceOvers that touch the special peoples lives at your ceremony. Our guests could not believe how great of a job he did an all of them said they will always remember our reception. Thank you Midwest entertainment for making our day so special an one we will never forget. You were absolutely amazing!! Love, Jennifer an Mitchell

We can't describe in words the time and true care that JD put into not only MC'ing the night, but through meeting with us and help us plan every minor detail of our wedding day. If we had an idea, JD had a suggestion to make it better, and we couldn't have asked for a better DJ on our day. I've honestly never been at a wedding where there were consistently 100 people on the dance floor until the very last song. He showed up early and stayed late -- that's just the type of guy that he is. The care and genuine helpfulness he showed from the time we first met with him until after our wedding was immaculate and I challenge any DJ in the area to compare. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ, new friend, and colleague to be a part of our day, and would recommend him to any person, any time. He's worth it!!!

JD was an amazing emcee and DJ for our wedding. We had such a good time and we attribute the "fun" part of our wedding to JD! Everyone had such a good time dancing the night away! We had many comments on how great the music list was - and how it was like a story through the decades. He is very professional, attentive and kind - and truly gets to know you prior to your wedding. We highly recommend JD and Midwest Entertainment for your wedding!

JD Fisher was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. He did music and uplighting for my ceremony, in between period between ceremony and reception and reception. He made sure everything ran smoothly. I am still receiving positive feedback from family and friends who attended our wedding about how much fun they had. Thanks JD!!
