Picking a DJ was the one vendor we were worried about - they set the tone for the entire night and can make or break a party. Jim kept our party going ALL night long. There was not a single dead moment during our reception and at one point the floor of our venue was shaking from all the people on the dance floor! Jim treats music selection, crowd engagement, and flow of events as a science without sacrificing fun. He's not just a DJ, he's a party connoisseur and wedding day coordinator all in one. Our entire wedding day flowed perfectly from ceremony, to cocktail hour, to reception, because of his consistency and attention to detail. We love Jim and will miss working with him greatly! More...

Jim Cerone is THE best DJ. Our dance floor was my favorite part of the whole day at our wedding! He spent so much time getting to know us in order to make our wedding the best party it could ever be! Not only that, but Jim’s presence alone just made me so calm and stress free. He handled every part of our day with ease and class. So many people from our wedding raved about Jim, the music he played, and even the little things like the trivia to release tables for dinner! I will seriously be recommending Jim to every person I know! More...

Jim Cerone is one of the very best in the business! After so many years knowing him professionally, I am so excited to work with him on my own event. Ladies (and gentlemen): this is the guy the pros choose to DJ/MC their weddings. He has truly earned his nickname. His tremendous talent and skill are outweighed only by his class, kindness, and modesty. A great choice for your event entertainment. Highly recommend. More...

Jim had our backs when our original DJ had medical issues, and he was better than 5 stars! His facilitation, attention to detail, and bringing great energy to the reception was perfect! Highly recommend his services and would make him our first choice in the future! More...

Jim Cerone really helped our whole day come together. I never realized how important a dj could be, until we got blessed with the best one out there!

Thank you Jim, for not only the music, but the whole day! (And keeping me calm)

Try to remember or imagine the greatest party you've ever been to and that's exactly what Jim can create as the host of your event! He has the innate ability to connect with people of all ages in such a fun and professional way. Jim is truly a master of music and due to how he arranged the selection of songs, we had guests from the age of 6 to 81 out on the dance floor until 11pm at my daughter's wedding reception! I have not ever been to a wedding where there were so many people dancing all night long and because everyone was having such a blast, no one wanted the night to end! Due to Jim's great working relationship with our wedding coordinator, Paula Mallory, and his prior experience in hosting events at Bridgewater Club in Carmel, IN., every imaginable detail and back up plan for possibly needing to move the ceremony and reception from an outdoor setting to indoor ballroom in case of bad weather was impeccably taken care of by Jim and Paula. Because everything flowed so smoothly, it enabled my daughter, her new husband, our families and 175 guests to truly enJOY every moment of such a special evening! Thank you Jim for ALL you did to make that possible......you are absolutely THE best!!!!! More...

There is no way NOT to like Jim Cerone. He is one of the most pleasant men you will ever meet. He is professional, courteous, and a true gentleman. On top of that, he is a master craftsmen when it comes to music. He has the highest quality equipment, and takes his job at every event seriously. He is more than a DJ, he is a master of ceremonies. He also has an uncanny way of making everyone feel at ease. Well worth the investment. More...

Jim has done two weddings for our family and he is absolutely the best. Takes care of all the flow for the reception so you can just relax and enjoy.

There is no question that Jim truly is the perfect host, as he leaves no stone unturned.

From the very beginning, he honed in on each detail –family relationships, readings, our vision for the entire event and, of course, our song selections and wedding timeline. In all communications (email, phone and in person), Jim was warm and inviting, putting us and our families at ease that everything would go smoothly.

During the weekend of our wedding, I was thankful to have Jim there as a resource for our ceremony rehearsal, and on the wedding day. He was the perfect example of what it is to be prepared, and our family and guests are still talking about the amazing DJ that was so eloquent during dinner and kept the party going on the dance floor all night long!

Wow. Jim is the Perfect Host for your wedding. You would be doing your wedding a disservice not to include him in your special day. We originally found him from the AMAZING recommendations of my mom's friend. She had nothing but extraordinary compliments to Jim's service. He exceeded even these high expectations. When I reached out to Jim, he was accommodating, responsive, & interested in my ideas. He had a Wedding Entertainment Planner ready to go to jot down ideas & plans for our day. He knew when he needed to step in to get us down the path for a perfect entertainment wedding.
Jim was ready with a timeline of events & music to accompany. From the beginning of the ceremony to the end of the night, Jim had a plan. Every minute was detailed & organized. He had us on a path to enjoy every moment of the night & (sometimes more importantly) our guests to rave about how perfect the wedding went. I cannot express how above & beyond Jim goes. He had tips for the perfect toasts, an agenda for us to be guided by, & he even called my mom during the final week just to check in & see how she was holding up. Talk about a perfect host.
What really blew my mind was he understood that my husband & I couldn't dance. He helped us along the way by choosing the perfect song & made it so the experience was quick & painless. We even got some compliments (although they may have been just being nice), but either way we actually enjoyed the dance. He had so many ideas & listened to every one of our suggestions. We are IU alums & he even playing 'This is Indiana' to make the crowd go crazy.
The day of, Jim was like a hawk. He knew what songs to play at just the right time to make sure everyone, & I mean everyone, got up on that dance floor. He constantly gave updates to my dad, the best man, & maid of honor so they were aware of their time to speak & made sure every event was a celebration. My wedding was as close to perfect as I could've dreamed & it was all thanks to Jim.

Jim was amazing to work with! We first met Jim at our best friends' wedding and were in love ever since! Jim was incredibly easy to communicate with and was very dedicated to making not only the music as much about us as possible, but to make sure that our entire day flowed smoothly. Jim had many ideas and suggestions to help us devise a plan that was unique and ran smoothly! Even when something did not go as planned, Jim was able to think quick on his feet at the drop of a moment, and make it appear like we had planned for it to go that way! Jim was very polite and charismatic. He was available for consult whenever we needed. He coordinated perfectly with the rest of my vendors. I would recommend him to everyone! Thank you so much Jim for being a part of our DREAM TEAM! More...

Jim was an incredible DJ and kept our wedding flowing smoothly all night and made sure everyone had an incredible time! Our guests were so impressed by his professionalism and how they were individually greeted at the door and couldn't stop raving about how fun the dance party was. I will recommend him to everyone without hesitation! More...

Words cannot accurately capture how wonderful Jim truly is! We partially picked our date around his availability and we are so glad we did. He is a true master of ceremonies, from day one his organization and professionalism stood out to us. His office is easy to get to, inviting, and well equipped to listen to the actual songs as we discussed them. His knowledge is unbeatable! I, personally, appreciated his timeline creation skills and checklists, along with his flexibility and wise suggestions to help with the flow of our ceremony and reception the most. He was always an email or phone call away and remained incredibly helpful, even with last minute changes. Our wedding is an experience I will never forget, and we owe our awesome night of dancing to Jim. So many of our guests commented on how wonderful he was though out the evening as well. He is such an exceptional person with impeccable presentation and skills, I am just so glad to know him. You will not regret booking with him, I promise! More...

Jim was everything my wife and I could have asked for and more. My wife, having the privilege to babysit his kid’s growing up, knew that Jim was top notch and he outdid himself! We had a magical evening that went absolutely perfect. The ceremony, food, drinks, cake, Jim’s Selfie-Stand, and THE MUSIC- All the right songs at the perfect moment! I can't begin to tell you how many people have said it was the best wedding reception that they have been to and we are still receiving messages expressing congrats and thanks.

The Selfie Stand was an absolute hit and was such a great time going through the pictures with family the day after. All of the memories that we will be able to keep from that including the continuous laughs as we made our way through all of the pictures are priceless!

Once again thank you so much for all that you did- keeping us on schedule, me on the dance floor as I tend to get chatty, and the party hoppin! Jim Cerone is indeed The Perfect Host!

Top notch and professional! The DJ is one of the most important vendors you are going to invest your money with since they keep the party going and speak to your guests on your behalf. Jim Cerone, without a doubt, is the best DJ and more in Indianapolis. To call him a DJ is an understatement with the class he exudes and takes care of making sure your wedding is going to be fabulous and flawless. You won't be disappointed with Jim and his services. My mother also had him attend and help with my bridal shower and all my guests were raving about how much fun the shower was. More...

Fantastic and the best you'll find! Jim was so responsive during the planning process and created some of the best memories for us during our wedding! Thank you Jim for an outstanding job during our very big day! Jim managed 5 different areas of entertainment in a 90 degree outdoor wedding with a huge rain storm approaching. That was impressive! The rain came, and in the tent we all went! But, Jim continued to make everyones evening fantastic. He accommodated our many specific request with ease. He is professional, and classy. We had a formal Saturday evening wedding and Jim traveled the distance for us. Highly recommend. More...

When my husband and I were asking around about DJ's for our wedding, every single venue and person that we talked to said to go with Jim Cerone - and I'm so glad that we did! This man was amazing from start to finish! It was great to be able to meet with him and discuss the general feel of our wedding, and as the date got closer he was excellent about the details. He made sure he had the correct pronunciations of the wedding party, honored our do not play list, and even helped guests find their seats at the reception. He was not only a DJ, but facilitated our reception to make sure every event ran smoothly. Jim got to know us on a personal level, which definitely showed throughout the evening. It felt as if he were a friend rather than a stranger playing music for us. It was an honor to have Jim Cerone at our wedding! More...

Jim Cerone did such an amazing job for our wedding! Communication was great, from emails to our meetings with him; and he is a very sincere and genuinely nice guy. He made sure that he knew exactly what type of music we wanted (and didn't want) played, and followed through far beyond our expectations. We received SO MANY compliments from our guests during and well after our wedding about what a wonderful job Jim did. One of the best investments we made and well worth the money! Highly recommend!

There is no other "DJ" in Indianapolis like Jim Cerone. He is extremely professional, fun and friendly. As a Wedding Entertainment Director, Jim gets the evening off on all the right feet! He acts as an ambassador for the bride and groom and the bride's family. He is wonderful and reading the guests and moving the events along at just the right pace. He knows how to use the music to "get the pot boiling" so that when the dinner is over and it is time to start dancing, people can't wait to get up and get moving! He even had people we NEVER expected to see on the dance floor up and dancing for several songs! He takes care of the details at the reception site so the bride and her family can enjoy. It almost felt like we were a guest at our own reception because we were able to enjoy it and not worry about making things happen. There is no reason to hire anyone else but Jim. He is the absolute best. Don't hesitate!! More...

Jim Cerone made our wedding a blast! He knew exactly what song to play at the perfect time, played some songs that all the different generations at the wedding could appreciate, and made all of our guests feel like VIP. Jim's brain is like a sponge, he remembered songs we mentioned four months before the wedding during our discussions and made sure to play them throughout the evening. He also really took the time to make sure we loved our ceremony music and worked fabulously with our minister on the timing of the ceremony. I can't imagine what our wedding would have been like if we didn't work with Jim. A true professional and all around great guy! More...

Anyone would be missing out if they did not choose Jim Cerone. He not only DJed, but also sat down with me to PLAN the entire wedding reception, and coordinated with the photographer, caterer, and reception manager. Totally professional! We absolutely loved having him there and recommend him to everyone we can! More...

If you don't at least consider Jim as the DJ/MC for your wedding, you are doing yourself a HUGE disservice.I've been to several weddings for friends and family members and the bands and DJs just didn't compare to Jim. He is very professional, thoughtful, such a calming influence, and essentially acts as a second Wedding Planner.  He offered several suggestions to us for songs, moments, and events that we wouldn't have otherwise thought of.  He comes dressed in a tux to both the rehearsal and the ceremony/reception.  He plays everything by ear and keeps the dance floor packed all night.  And he will absolutely stick to your 'must play' and 'do not play' lists.Check out his website - there are videos to give you an idea of what a wedding is like with him as the DJ.  You won't regret it!jimcerone.com More...

Jim is not just a DJ, he is a Master of the Ceremony. He "ran" the show and made it so enjoyable for my husband and I. He and Stephanie from Hawthorn's worked together to make my daughter's reception easy for us. We enjoyed it thanks to them. He puts a lot of time into making it personal as well, which made it a lot of fun. We will be using him again in Sept. for our other daughter's wedding. More...

I HIGHLY recommend Jim Cerone to any and everyone in the Indianapolis area getting married! He truly made our reception flow seamlessly letting the crowd know when things were about to occur, making sure all parents/wedding party/etc. knew when they were to do what AND from the second the dance floor was opened until the end of the reception people were crowded on the dance floor.

I have never been to a wedding where the DJ is so awesome actually (and I'm not being partial!)! I give Jim 5+ stars!!!

We debated about a band vs. a dj for a very long time. However, when we met Jim we knew he was our guy. We received so many compliments on the quality of his services and his music selection. Having Jim as our dj was the right decision and we could not have been more pleased with him. More...

Jim is the ultimate professional. From the initial meeting, we knew that we had the right guy for our wedding. Jim has a gift of making soundtracks for wedding receptions. He was available to us at all times and would call us back with songs that we couldn't thing of......he is a true master of ceremonies: never taking the spotlight off of the main event, but running an event without a flaw. He made our wedding very unique and personal to us. If you're planning a wedding reception, in our opinion the DJ makes or breaks your reception. You won't regret calling Jim. Thank you so much, Jim, for making our reception one we will never forget! More...
