At Midwest Entertainment your wedding reception will be fun, worry free, and most importantly the way you want it! After years of entertaining hundreds of weddings I’ve learned what it means to have a “dream wedding”. It’s a day where you, your families and your closest friends come together to celebrate your union in marriage. It’s your job to sit back, relax and have the time of your life without a hitch, except the one at the ceremony!


With Midwest Entertainment, you will enjoy the most personal experience on your special day. Before you even sign a contract, we will come to you. We are excited to get to know you and we want you to be completely comfortable with us so that we can make your day as unique as you’ve always dreamed.


We’ve got years of experience and hundreds of weddings behind us, and we are eager to add on many more. We understand the value of always learning and growing. That’s exactly why we attend DJ conventions and seminars to improve our knowledge and skills. We stay up-to-date with equipment and technology and update our music library on a weekly basis.


When we say this, we mean we are constantly striving for it. Entertainment is our passion, and it shows. From the moment you contact us to inquire about a date or a price quote, you’ll begin to notice the extra steps we take. We work hard to make every step of your planning process as easy as possible leading up to your one, perfect day.


At the core of this business, is love. Love for what we do and love for what we create. This day is truly all about you, and we strive to make that happen in every way.

Midwest Entertainment and Event Lighting is amazing to work with! My fiance and I were contacted by them immediately and asked to set up an in-person meeting. My fiance was a little apprehensive at first, but within the first five minutes of meeting, I could tell that we would end up booking Midwest Entertainment. After an hour an a half meeting, my fiance was asking to sign a contract and any other paperwork. Not only does Midwest provide music and entertainment, but there are many other additional services you can request, such as lighting, videos, etc. Midwest is also not like any other DJ. They go above and beyond, meeting with you many times before the wedding to get to know you, and make the wedding as personal and fun as possible. Midwest will contact every other vendor you are working with before the wedding to coordinate and make sure that everything will run smoothly and guests will constantly be entertained. (Almost like a mini wedding planner). Midwest is a bit more on the expensive side, but definitely worth it as you are paying for much more than just a DJ. Highly recommend.

JD (Midwest Entertainment) was hands down amazing, and if I ever have a large event in the future we will be requesting his services again! From our initial meeting through the big day, JD was with us every step of the way, he was willing to meet as often as needed to review details, record audio, tour our reception venue and more. I was blown away by his prompt response time and professionalism (all my friends said they never heard from their DJ's till the day of the wedding, we were so lucky to have selected Midwest Entertainment)! Not only did JD take the time to get to know us as a couple, but he caught our vision for our big day and ran with it, taking loads of work and worry off my plate. Our guests were on the dance floor all night long and we couldn't stop smiling as we received numerous texts the the following day from friends who were 'so sore' from dancing the night away! I would highly recommend JD and Midwest Entertainment!

JD with Midwest Entertainment was everything we wanted in a DJ. He was extremely professional every time we met with him yet also showed an enthusiasm for his craft and for our wedding. JD even bent over backwards to help us put together a top-notch slideshow at the last minute after we encountered some technical difficulties the week of the wedding. Midwest Entertainment also provided uplighting for our wedding and, while we debated whether or not we wanted it during planning, it proved to be a great addition which helped create the ambiance we were searching for, with minimal interaction on our part.

JD was excellent during the reception as he guided us through our schedule swiftly and with a friendly and personable presence. We also received rave reviews on JD's performance from family and friend of all ages. Some remarked that it was the "danciest" wedding they'd ever attended!

We would highly recommend JD and Midwest Entertainment for your wedding day needs!

My new husband and I had JD as our DJ as well as our master of ceremonies and lighting! I cannot say more positive things about our experience with him. He is first and foremost a wonderful, nice, accommodating person who genuinely wants to make your day be as perfect (and run as perfectly) as you want it to. He takes the extra time to meet with you and make sure he has covered each and every aspect of your special day... He not only does the "DJ" part (when talking about music) but he also does the "master of ceremony" part where he makes every portion of your night run as smoothly and effortlessly as possible! He also did the lighting for our wedding reception at Aria in Minneapolis!! To say he exceeded our expectations and vision is a complete understatement! JD is the full package and I couldn't recommend him more, or with a higher regard!

He made us feel like his first priority and rolled with any creative curve balls I could come up with last minute. I would choose him as our DJ over and over! We would both very highly recommend him!

JD is nothing short of AMAZING! I was impressed the first time I met him. He was so professional and truly wanted to give you the experience you wanted for your wedding. It was not about him putting on a show, it was about him creating the night you dreamed of. He helped make our wedding an unforgettable experience and he worked hand-in-hand with our other vendors. My husband and I were a little curious how our dance would be because we had a lot of family coming from Brazil and they did not speak the language. JD incorporated Brazilian music into the dance and EVERYONE enjoyed it! By the end of the night the majority of the music he was playing was Brazilian music. JD really understands what the crowed wants and he has an amazing way of keeping everyone on the dance floor. Thank you to JD for making our wedding everything we wanted and more! And Thiago says, "keep rocking your suits" (he was impressed by your professionalism)

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.

Jd did an AMAZING job with our uplighting and entertainment at our wedding in September! The number one thing my husband and I wanted was a dj that kept everyone one the dance floor and boy did he deliver! His professional demeanor, innovative ideas and training, in addition to his awesome energy leading up to and throughout our special day was amazing. I would highly recommend Jd to ANY couple! He is the complete package as a dj and entertainer!

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. :)
