    Wes was amazing! Our wedding was at the Ivy Club and Wed provided great sound for the ceremony and then reception. He is very professional and easy to work with. The planner he provided us totally helped me get everything organized. He was flexible with us especially right before he announced our wedding party because we had a few changes in the order of groomsman. I loved the smoky haze we had for our first dance, it added a beautiful touch. The choices he made for the open dance music had everyone dancing all night! The dance floor was never empty. Thank you Wes for making my special day even better!

    "Didn't play a bad song all night", "This guy is good", "That fog was so pretty during your dance", These are just a few compliments my guests made at my wedding. Wes was amazing and I couldn't have found anyone better to set the wonderful atmosphere that he did. We are definitely recommending Mojo Music to everyone we meet!

    Couldn't have asked for a better dj for our wedding.
    If you want a dj that is professional, reliable, and would do anything take your day perfect, Wes is the dj for you. He did such an amazing job at our ceremony and reception. He even took the time to show up at our rehearsal, answered any questions we had and made everything stress free. Wes is second to none and his sound system will blow you out of this world. We surprised my wife with the fairytale first dance and she was speechless. Our family and friends could not stop complimenting Wes's quality of music and how well he mixed up song choices. I would recommend Wes to anyone and I guarantee you won't be the slightest disappointed. Awesome job again Wes and thank you everything!

    Wes went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was perfect, and we were happy!! Every song guests requested was played, lighting was perfect, and the clouds for our first dance was amazing!! Wes was always very good at answering any questions we had, and helping us along the way when we needed help deciding songs, or orders to do things throughout the night. We couldn't be any happier with our decision to book Wes for our big day. Thank you again Wes for making our day amazing.

    Outstanding & Affordable
    Wes was the most amazing DJ we could have asked for! He went above and beyond in every aspect for our wedding! He was able to provide wireless microphones, beautiful uplighting, and a fog machine for our first dance which all the kids just loved! He was also able to set up a sound system outside for our ceremony, and one inside for our reception in a matter of minutes! Our night went according to plan because of Wes announcing everything on time and wrangling our guests to where they needed to be. The sound quality was perfection, and he played every song we wanted plus so many more! Everyone had a blast dancing away the night! I'm so thankful Wes was able to provide everything we could have ever wanted from a DJ, and he was so easy to communicate with during the preparation of the big wedding day! He was able to make everything stress free for us! Mojo Music DJ Service is able to provide your wedding with the most outstanding DJ you could ask for, at the most affordable price! I recommend Mojo Music DJ Service to everybody! Thank you so much again Wes!

    Wes was the dj for my wedding and he did a phenomenal job! I dropped the ball with picking out music and he did a better job than I could have.

    The 5/5 star rating he has acquired is true!
    Wes did our wedding over at Wildlife Prairie Park, and it was amazing. My wife loved the smoke machine during our first dance, making amazing photos. The music was always something the crowd loved, at which everyone was dancing the night away. Wes worked with us a couple weeks before the wedding, going over every detail; what songs to play, songs not to play; very detailed which my wife loved. I highly recommend Wes for your future event, as he will go the extra mile to make sure your event is fantastic.

    I hired Wesley as our DJ for our ceremony and reception. He was extremely thorough, flexible, and easy to communicate with which is a big thing for me. He did everything that I requested perfectly! He was at the ceremony and reception early to set up and music was right on time to all of my specific needs. His prices you CANNOT beat! Finally, my reception was AMAZING all thanks to Wesley. He knew how to keep the crowd dancing and the music rolling. He stayed on track as far as my agenda and he was a pleasure to work with. I absolutely loved the lights that he set up. He even offered the floor fog which sounds awesome, but my venue wouldn't allow it. Good feature though. I'm a professional dancer and I love dancing so every song he played kept me and my lovely guests on the dance floor all night! I highly recommend booking him! Book him early because he is a hot commodity! I definitely recommend him to anyone who has got a wedding or any other big party! Definitely an awesome DJ.

    We loved our experience with Wes as our wedding DJ! First of all, Wes was outstanding when trying to plan our wedding from 2,000 miles away. He was very prompt in emailing and answered all our questions right away. He was so great about letting us request all our favorite songs for the wedding and letting guests request songs as well. We were happy that he provided feedback about songs that guests typically enjoy at weddings, as well! As for helping our night go smoothly, he did a fantastic job announcing all the big events at the reception such as cake cutting, first dances and more. He even did special announcements about group photos occurring, shuttle schedules and more. We highly recommend hiring Wes for any of your special events, but especially weddings. Thanks so much, Wes!!

He led the charge in terms of making sure everything ran as scheduled at the rehersal and did so in a very professional manner. If you're looking for a DJ to play the music you and your partner like, who is also super affordable, Wes is most definitely the way to go! We were so very pleased!

    I hired Wes (Mojo Music DJ Service) for my wedding and I couldn't be happier that I did! Wes did an excellent job! First of all, Wes was always very easy to get in touch with. He would respond within a couple of hours AT MOST to all of my emails. Also, Wes makes it very simple to request songs with the request website and to organize the wedding with the wedding planner. Wes thought of things that I never would have that made my wedding that much more enjoyable ( like different songs for bouquet and garter toss and cake cutting). Wes also provided back lighting behind the head table that matched the theme of the wedding! Wes was also very patient with me when it was taking me longer than planned to fill out the wedding planner and request list. And I can't say enough how much I LOVED the fog for the first dance! It made my husbands and my first dance both beautiful and magical. I'm sure I'm forgetting something but I cannot say enough how happy I am with the DJ services provided by Mojo Music DJ Service. Thank you Wes!

    Wes did an awesome job!! We would highly recommend him, he became part of our day not just our DJ. He arrived on time and was set up and playing music for us during our photos!! The ceremony and reception went off without a hitch. We didn't have a rehearsal but no worries, Wes just took the planner and went with it and the ceremony music was PERFECT!! He kept the reception on track but let us have control of when things happened (I hadn't ate yet so he just gave me the mike to turn on when I was ready, when I did he noticed and faded the music for me). We couldn't be happier with Wes, we could tell this was his passion not just his job! Thanks Wes for making our day truly the best day ever!!

    Wes offered to be at the rehearsal-he showed up early, ready with my songs I requested-which were a little odd, but he had the exact versions I wanted. He made great suggestions-but didn't try to change what I wanted. My wedding day order of events kept changing but he was a champ and rolled with it and got through it! On the day of my wedding, he showed up over 5 hours before the ceremony started to set up-he added an additional setup for the outdoor ceremony for no extra charge. He played all my favorite requested songs. I know it's very crowd dependent, but a bunch of people danced! It was so much fun & the music was a blast. His lighting selection is fabulous-I just let him do what he thought was best and it looked awesome! I did not use the fog-but he has it! Wes will get what you want for your big day-and he traveled far for me on my big day. Thanks Wes!!

    When I registered with thumbtack to find a DJ, Wes responded to me with a personal message which was special to me because the other DJs that responded copy and pasted an automatic message to me. Wes went the distance to find out every detail of my entire wedding to fully understand the entire day. He provided the muaox for our ceremony outside and then set up his booth inaide the reception as well. He was extremely easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable planning my wedding. I felt I could talk to him like a friend. I highly recommend Wes Huston for any event as he his very personable and goes the distance! Thanks for being amazing!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I do offer standard pricing for all wedding receptions. All of my services are included in a flat rate with no A La Carte options.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I always reach out to all new customers by phone or email to establish a time to meet in person. There is nothing better than talking face to face as it is so much more personable.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I love music and meeting new people. This is the perfect opportunity to fulfill both desires.
What types of customers have you worked with?
The most common event type is wedding receptions, but I have worked just about any type of event that there is.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Read the reviews and make sure that your vendor of choice is willing to make your day what you want, not what they think you want.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Ask how long they have been in business and inquire about how many events they have completed that are relatable to your event. Also make sure your vendor has a contingency plan in case the original plans deviate. A good vendor can cope with any surprises.
