    I would highly recommend DJ D Jones if you're looking for a wedding DJ!! (or any other event for that matter) It was a fantastic evening and I had no complaints whatsoever. The dance floor was filled all night and everybody had a great time! He was polite, extremely responsive to any communications and last minute changes, and it was an absolute pleasure working with him, all for a better price than we were able to find among competitors in Chicago.

    If you want a great party whereby people will rave about the music, hire DJ D. Jones. He was hired for a Sweet 16 and definitely delivered! Lighting was perfect, music was exactly what we asked for, and everyone was dancing up until the very end. Professional and communicative. I couldn't ask for more and will definitely be using his services in the future. Thank you again!

    DJ Jones was very professional with his approach. He wanted to know what he needed to do to make our event great. He always responded quickly to any questions. We had a great overall experience with him. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ.

    DJ D. Jones was hired for our annual faculty/staff Christmas party at our school. This could be a tricky task, as the entertainment needs to appeal to both an older and a younger crowd. Suffice to say, everything was wonderful and exceeded our expectations! He was very easy to contact and work with during the planning process. As for the function itself, it was a perfect blend: pleasant holiday music at the outset, evolving into a rocking dance party that people would gladly pay a cover charge to attend. Everyone - and I do mean EVERYONE - was up and dancing until the last song, and did not want the night to end. Even weeks later, I am still getting compliments about the party: People are telling me that it was the best party yet, and that the DJ made the party so special. If you are looking for entertainment that is tastefully professional, energetic, and lots of fun, I highly recommend DJ D. Jones. I know I will be calling him for future events.

    DJ D Jones was amazing! I had so many of my guests tell me how great he was! He hit the nail on the head with the style/kinds of music that was perfect for my party. I can't recommend DJ D JONES highly enough! I cant wait to have another party just so I can hire him! You WILL be happy if you hire DJ D Jones for your next party!

    From the minute we started working with DJ D. Jones he was great to work with. He was easy to contact, via text, phone call and email. He offered great suggestions for the wedding when we needed them. Duerell improvised very well when we encountered a snag that left his set out of view of the procession of the ceremony and worked hard to make sure everything continued to go swimmingly (which it did!). The guests, who came from all over the US, and even the world (a lot of British people made the trip) loved his work during the reception and his ability to provide every request that was made. During our initial talks with Duerell we explained that it was mostly an older crowd and that should be his general music theme for the night, when it became apparent that the crowd on the dance floor was much younger he adapted to this so well, nobody would have known there was any other plan. He had everything so well planned out on the day and made our lives as Bride and Groom so easy, it gave us the chance to really soak it all in, something we cannot thank him enough for. We never once worried about anything. We highly recommend Duerell to everyone, no matter the occasion! Brittany and Joshua Goldsmith

    Duerell was the DJ for our 40th Anniversary luncheon & dance party Oct.4th 2015. We were so pleased with his professionalism. It was a pleasure talking to him and getting things planned. We recommend Duerell to all our friends and family for their DJ needs. Easy to talk to and work with. Our guests gave him GREAT reviews!! Look forward to hiring Duerell for our next BIG event :D

    Durell couldn't have been more accommodating throughout our charity event! Would work with him again at anytime!

    Mr. Jones was our amazing wedding DJ on September 5, 2015. Hands down DJ D Jones is the best man for the job. In wedding planning brides look for quality, professionalism, and the best , in which Jones provided all these things. It all started with our free consultation with Mr Jones; as he answers all of my questions promptly and I left his office feeling totally content and knew I found my professional wedding DJ.. Throughout my planning process Jones was extremely helpful, creative and I was completely comfortable and at peace, that this DJ will make my wedding vision a reality. We purchased the diamond package (which I HIGHLY recommend to all ) , I absolutely loved his uplighting (like no other), totems, quality of equipment, and that we were able to pick our own custom Gobo design for display. During our wedding DJ Jones was prompt and ready to start ahead of the scheduled time. He worked well with our other vendors and most importantly he delivered a supreme service to my wedding guests and we were completely satisfied with his service. Today, I have recommended DJ Jones to ever bride I came across, as I am 100% sure he will make any wedding grand as mine. PS. For any sorority/fraternity DJ has an amazing uplighting system to represent for your organization....... For those you who are wondering...Yes, DJ D Jones is extremely versatile, he can DJ at any and every event!!! Completely skilled!!!

    I discovered DJ DJones at an event for PAWS Chicago, so when I needed entertainment for my wedding, I wanted to go to the "good people" first. Durell was in constant contact and kept us in track while planning our evening. He reached out many times as the date approached to ensure we had everything we wanted. My husband and I have tightschedules (we calendar request each other if we need something)... So to communicate w Durell, we also scheduled conference calls. He was incredibly prompt, which was valuable to us since we have very few spare minutes each day. The night of, Durell was fantastic. My guests had so many compliments on his music, and that what was most important to me. He's talented and professional. If you are looking for a DJ-- stop debating and just hire DJ D Jones. You can't go wrong!

    So words cannot describe how awesome DJ Djones was for our wedding. We booked him for our wedding last week and he was truly awesome to work with from the start. He's professional and open to ideas and gave several suggestions. He had an agenda for the entire day from music for our ceremony to cocktail hour through the rest of the night. He also has an amazing feel for the audience that he plays for and picks the perfect kind of songs to keep the party going. He had all of our friends dancing until the very last song. I would not even hesitate to book him again. Even the manager at the venue we were at complemented his professionalism.

    I hired DJ Jones for my daughter's Cinderella Sweet 16 party and he did an outstanding job! He worked with me prior to the event, and even went to the Banquet Hall (2 weeks early) to better understand the layout. He is very professional, reliable, responsive and committed to his trade! He kept all 155 guests energized throughout the entire event. DJ Jones gets a full 5 stars because his services exceeded my expectations. I will hire him again for my next event.
