If you want your event to be the talk of the town for months to come, drop everything and book Jerick aka JD from SWDE now!!! He was a huge part of making my wedding a success and it's not by luck. I've been to 2 other weddings where he worked the crowd as a DJ/MC and both brides highly recommended him based on his talent, professionalism, and fun & charming personality.
From the very beginning, I liked that JD was extremely proactive on following up on our discussions. On our first meeting, I already saw that he was very professional--he came prepared with a checklist and took meticulously detailed note on our vision for our wedding. Furthermore, he put in effort to get a good sense of our dynamic as a couple so he could reflect that during our wedding. During the planning process, he was very flexible, response, scheduled conference call to make sure we are on the same page, and was transparent on what he needs. He also scoped out the location before the wedding to ensure he's 100% set for the day-of.
On our wedding day, he came early and set up on time without a hitch. He worked the crowd using the list of songs we provided as well as some crowd-pleasers of his own. He even got a line dance going at one point. He also did an excellent job hosting the newlywed games, etc. The crowd danced all night and JD concluded the wedding reception with "Don't Stop Believing" but the guests wanted to keep going! They actually boo'ed when they were told the wedding is over. I've actually never been to a wedding where the crowd did not want to leave after the last song. So we had to extend the wedding a little longer. Still to this day, people still tell me they never had so much fun at a wedding. People may forget what they wore, ate, or saw, but NEVER forget how they felt at an event. So if you want an awesome wedding that you and your guests will forever remember and cherish, JD is your man. So snatch him up as quickly as you can!!!

J.D. was recommended to us by a friend who is a DJ (and was unavailable for our event) and am I ever happy I made that call!

He immediately 'got it' that we were doing something a little different for our wedding. Invites were sent for a 50th birthday celebration. In reality, after the cocktail hour, we were exchanging our vows! J.D. and I spoke about the plans for the evening and he offered suggestions on timing of events and reminded me about traditional wedding events I hadn't considered.

Then came the song selections for the evening. J.D. took down all of the songs and artists - both likes and dislikes - and built a playlist that rocked the night! He had EVERYONE on the dance floor! Our guests are still raving about how much fun they had. That includes a Sr. VP of a biotech company!

On top of the music and keeping the dance floor full, J.D. also managed to transform a standard banquet room with uplighting in just the right shade to compliment the evening and an electronic disco ball for when the dancing got rocking.

As the bride, I knew from the moment we walked into the room that J.D. had everything under control and that our night was going to shine beyond our imaginations. With him at the helm, I had the best time of my life in those few hours and know that our guests also had a blast!

J.D., thank you for making our party/wedding everything that we wanted it to be.

We hired JD for our wedding ceremony and reception. JD was great to work with. He always had an upbeat attitude and helped us through some song selections and reception planning. He played all the songs on our request list and was flexible enough to continue the wedding reception past allotted time if we needed. We were happy that he was able to do both the ceremony and reception, because simple is great! Everything went on time and was a great addition to our wedding. There were some parts of the reception that I would have liked to iron out a little bit more, like the cake cutting song. My father-in-law forgot to toast to us and was hoping someone (maybe the DJ?) would have caught that. Overall we would definitely hire him again for any more entertainment needs!

We were so pleased with J.D.'s services at our wedding! He really took the time to get to know us prior to the event and this made a huge difference in the quality of the services rendered. He was respectful, creative, funny, and extremely professional. He even went so far to make music selection suggestions for us that ended up changing our original plans for the better. We would highly recommend J.D. for any event if you are looking for exceptional service! Music can make or break an event and J.D. was amazing! Thank you J.D. for contributing to our wedding and making it spectacular!

Coleen's review: JD is an incredible dj. Before the wedding he kept me updated with everything I needed to do and provided a worksheet for me to complete to ensure that I picked the song I liked. JD was flexible and answered emails in a timely manner even if it were late at night or early in the morning. He worked with my wedding oordinator, best man, maid of honor and both our parents to ensure the ceremony and reception was a time to remember. Our wedding was modern and he worked with Ricky and I and made it the most memorable day of my life. Thanks again JD!

J.D. from Shall We Dance Entertainment provided his excellent DJ and MC services for our wedding in Pasadena in June 2011. We had a fantastic time and the dancing and attendee involvement was really non-stop. After pauses for moments like cutting the cake and the bouquet toss the dancing and music and dancing picked promptly just as we had asked. J.D. did an excellent job picking favorites from different eras so every generation had something to get down to. He was very helpful in working with us in advance of the ceremony to help come up with the perfect list of songs for special moments. He's incredibly personable and does a superb job multitasking and handling MC duties while helping our wedding night flow wonderfully. He's a very talented singer and at our request he sang the music leading to the cake cutting ceremony. He did an excellent job coordinating with our wedding planner before and during the event to ensure we stayed on schedule, yet adapted with aplomb when we requested last minute changes of plan. J.D. worked really well with the attendees in gathering some audience requests that got everyone moving. Most importantly he helped us to cater the mood and atmosphere to exactly what we wanted. He was a wonderful choice and I would highly recommend his services.

After a last minute fiasco with our original DJ, JD definitely came through and saved the day! With only 10 days before the wedding he met with us and planned out the best music ever! We got so many rave reviews about how great the music was all night long and still to this day. Only bummer was that he forgot to open up the toasts to anyone else who wanted to say something and the next day I found out my grandfather (who walked me down the aisle) had written a surprise speech he wasn't able to give. Other then that everything was AMAZING!
