Our DJ, Sam, made our ceremony and reception run smoothly! Their portal for documents and planning make the set up process way easy. Definitely invest in a great DJ from Judah Press Entertainment for your wedding. It will be worth it! More...

My wife and I used Judah Press Entertainment to DJ our wedding and it was probably the best decision we've ever made. DJ Sam was amazing at picking songs all night and keeping the dance party going. Like my wife and I never left the dance floor all night long. Everyone at our wedding kept saying how much they loved the dancing and music. I just want to thank Judah Press Entertainment and DJ Sam for an amazing night I'll never forget. More...

We couldn't have asked for better service from Judah Press for our wedding reception! DJ Sam really took the time to listen to our vision for the wedding and made sure that the music was uniquely "us." Our guests had so much fun and we know that Judah Press had everything to do with that! Thanks for everything! More...

I am so thankful we had Judah Press DJ at our wedding. Jesse was nothing but joy and extremely helpful. Not only was the process leading up to the wedding perfect, but even the day of he was great. Obviously as the bride I had very few interactions with him the day of or paid very close attention as I was slightly distracted, but my wedding coordinator and officiant had high praises for him as well! Glad we chose to have them be a part of our perfect day!! More...

My husband and I could not say enough good things about Jesse Pilkenton from Judah Press Entertainment. As our DJ for our wedding, he went above and beyond in creating a reception so unique to us. He made sure he knew everything we wanted, from the flow of the evening to each special jam song. And because of his diligence and focus on us, he created one of the most fun and vibrant dance parties our guests had ever experienced. Judah Press makes events that feel, sound, and love like the hosts, and it is because of their commitment to us as the bride and groom that I would recommend them to all. More...

Sam and the rest of the Judah press crew helped make my day so perfect. We had the time of our lives at the reception and it was everything I wanted and so much more. They took care of all the details and even helped me fan out some fires behind the scenes. I could not have been happier , I would recommend and will to everyone I know! Y’all it was LIT �, thanks Judah! More...

Judah Press Entertainment was absolutely amazing. Our DJ met with us and got down to business right away with the details of the ceremony and reception, making a timeline and telling us what we needed to do to continue prepping for the big day. On our wedding day, he was there ALL DAY LONG. He set up everything we needed and was so proactive in anticipating our needs. He was amazing hosting our reception. He got everyone on their feet to welcome us in to the ballroom and we felt so loved. He played all of our song picks throughout dinner and then had a great mix for the dance party. We had SEVERAL people ask who he was because they wanted him at their next event/wedding. You can't go wrong with Judah Press!!!! More...

I can't say enough good things about Jesse & Judah Press Entertainment. Jesse gave my husband and me some really solid advice when looking for a DJ. He said, keep in mind the person you hire as your DJ serves as the official voice/host of the biggest, most expensive party you'll probably ever throw. Awesome advice and honestly the selling point for bringing Jesse on as our DJ. From the moment we met him we knew he had to be there on our big day. Not only did he throw an AMAZING party with the most perfect soundtrack for our day but it was the best feeling to know he had our back if anything were to go wrong or haywire during the day. It felt like having a trusted friend there as a safety net which is an invaluable feeling as a bride! We built an amazing team of vendors that helped our day be the MOST perfect wedding day and Jesse is a big part of that. Best decision, hands down! More...

Having been to at least 50 weddings, all over the country...I can honestly say Judah Press throws the best party and hosts the best events. My husband and I chose them for our wedding after seeing them work their magic at ALL of our friends' weddings. They are so good that everyone we know who sees them wants to hire them for their own. We felt cared for from the first meeting to way into marriage. They are organized, caring, and more than accommodating. They even flew to Texas for us! From the ceremony to the reception, our guests were ushered by excellent hosts with clear direction, then the dance party hit and everyone went wild into the most killer dance party. Crowd surfing even happened...that's just how good they are. Judah Press has the best selection of music with awesome remixes. We wouldn't hire or recommend anyone else! More...

Judah Press Entertainment (JPE) provided sound support for my wedding ceremony and also provided a DJ, Jesse, for the reception. Our reception was outside on a relatively windy day, but Jesse and his team expertly made adjustments and ensured that the sound quality throughout the ceremony was nothing short of excellent.

After introductions of the wedding party and a few toasts at the beginning of the reception, Jesse completely transformed the atmosphere of the evening and made the party into something that I can only describe as TOTALLY LIT. Jesse played a tasteful, yet wildly entertaining selection of music that corresponded wonderfully with our pre-determined genre preferences. Jesse infused the reception with energy, and, like a general ready to lead his troops on a party crusade, got everyone in the spirit of celebration by using the glow sticks we made available to all guests to construct a headband and cross-chest battle vest, which he wore the entire evening.

Do you want to have a boring wedding or party where nobody gets on the dance floor and the music is solely used as background noise? If your answer to that is yes, then don't hire JPE because you won't be able to keep your guests off the dance floor without beating them with a large stick. (Actually, I'm sure that JPE would be happy to play boring background music for your event if that's what you want; furthermore, they insist on meeting and corresponding well before the event to ensure the atmosphere of the party is what you want it to be, even if you want it to be boring.)

All of that being said, if you want to have expert sound support or disc jockey entertainment at your event, the best choice is undoubtedly Jesse and the entire team at JPE.

If you're looking for an entertainment company that will blow your socks off and provide spot on service, then call Judah Press Entertainment. From the first call with their team, you know that they are dedicated to making your event special and fit your personal needs/desires. Every couple and event is different, so JPE works with you to set the mood for the event and keep it flowing the whole time. The JPE team has a special touch and methodology to guide its customers through the process of selecting music and setting the tone for your event.

For us, we were planning a wedding in Athens while living in NYC. The JPE team made communication a breeze with regular Face-time/Skype calls and prompt email responses. While its always easy to find good music for your run or a long drive, we found deciding music for a wedding much more difficult especially for the first dance, transition songs, etc. The JPE team was there to provide recommendations and other ideas so that we could curate the perfect event.

During the event, the JPE team was there early and stayed late. Not only were they focused on the main show (the reception), they were also lending a hand to the rest of the wedding team to make sure our ceremony was smooth by providing microphones and transitioning music during the entire event.

The JPE team have the experience to make your event a success. For us, there was always a special song playing, which inevitably made the night end way too quick. It was a pleasure having them assist us with our wedding, and I would not hesitate to contact them again in the future for other entertainment needs.

Thanks for making the event truly spectacular!

They are the best DJ’s you could ask for. From making sure the reception ran so smoothly, to getting our guests on the dance floor all night, they are the best you can get for your special day! I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a wedding DJ! They truly care about you and want the night to go perfectly! Highly highly recommend! More...

Judah Press Entertainment is the way to go. From the first time I talked to them until after the wedding they did everything they could for us. I chose them after seeing them at 2 other weddings. They are so much fun and keep the party going. I have no doubt that without Jesse the wedding could have turned in to a mess. He knew exactly what was going on at all times so I was able to relax and follow his instruction. He even made sure we ate. He got out there and danced with us and the dance floor was never empty. I would never hire anyone else. We loved them. More...

Jesse did a fantastic job DJ-ing for my wedding! He went above and beyond to make sure everything was just the way we wanted it, and he helped our reception run smoothly. And most importantly... he made it super fun! I can’t recommend Judah Press highly enough. One thing that really impressed us was his announcement at the beginning of the reception that let guests know to give us space to eat. And he stood near the table to make sure no one bothered us too much! It was subtle, but it made a big difference for us. Once we had dinner, we were free to socialize with our guests without worrying about being hungry. More...

Jesse and Judah Press were absolutely phenomenal in helping us with our wedding reception! Not only were they completely committed to giving us exactly what we were looking for as far as musical selection (We loved getting to form our own playlist of favorite dance songs along with a list of our favorite bands and songs that are meaningful to us) but they also helped with much more than your average DJ stuff. Jesse helped us form a timeline of the entire event, not just the portions he was a part of, and created a plan for the overall flow of the event with a pretty tricky venue space to make sense of. He even coordinated our sparkler send off and jumped into action at the first sign of a couple rain drops! We couldn't have been happier with how everything worked out and that's due in no small part to Judah Press! Thank you, thank you, thank you! More...

We could not have asked for a better company to handle our wedding. Not only did Jesse work with us personally and diligently, he was there through our entire planning process offering advice. JPE made our wedding a dream come true. They get a complete feel of the vibe and tone you'd like to set and run with it! Jesse assisted us in crafting the PERFECT playlist that truly told the story of our relationship AND got the party started when we were ready!

Jesse even joined us on the dance floor to help amp everyone up. All in, it was a phenomenal experience and Judah Press Entertainment deserves way more than 5 stars!

If there was a way to give Judah TEN stars.. I would! I attended a wedding last fall where he was the entertainment, and he did an incredible job from start to finish. His emcee skills were top notch, and his ability to read his audience and deliver the BEST playlist ever...amazing! Don't miss out on an opportunity to work with such incredible talent! More...

Jesse (owner of Judah Press and our wedding DJ) is truly wonderful at what he does. He has a gift for not only picking amazing music according to your taste + preferences, but also for reading a crowd and keeping a party rolling :) Our wedding guests had so much fun dancing, the dance floor was crowded all night. We could not have asked for a better experience with Judah Press and Jesse. They are professional, genuinely good people, and offer top notch DJ services. More...

We chose Judah Press Entertainment because of a recommendation from our photographer. I was a bit apprehensive since music is such a crucial part of a wedding but I was immediately put at ease when I spoke with Jesse for the first time. His energy and passion were evident even through the phone and I could just tell he would keep the party going...and that he did! We met with Jesse ahead of time to discuss our vision. We wanted music from our high school days in the late 90s/early 2000s and Jesse definitely delivered. He started the party out with some 70s-90s favorites for everyone to dance to and as the evening progressed, he went into music that the younger crowd enjoyed. I usually don't dance very much at weddings and I did not leave the dance floor because he kept playing all of my favorite songs and we were all having too much fun!! We got so many glowing comments from our guests about Jesse and the music as well!Jesse has a gift for reading the crowd and honoring the requests of the bride and groom. You can tell this isn't just a job for him, he actually enjoys being apart of your special day and wants it to be as fabulous as you do. He told me when we first talked that the best thing I could do in wedding planning was to surround myself with great vendors and let them do their thing and not have to worry. He was so right!Thank you for an unforgettable night! More...

Judah Press was a no brainer when my husband and I were planning our wedding. We had been to weddings where Sam and Drew had been the DJs and we knew what an awesome dance party they could throw. Jesse was our immediate contact for all things music. It was such a fun process getting our playlists together. Jesse was so excited for us as we were entering our new chapter of life and we knew, because of this, he would make sure our party was the best. He did not dissapoint! We danced and danced and danced some more at our wedding. Jesse was an amazing emcee. And he made sure I ate my dinner. Which is very important! My husband and I have been married for 3 years and people still talk about our celebration. You cannot go wrong choosing Judah Press for your event! More...

These guys made Our Day. Literally. They did it all. Not only did they handle “their” responsibilities, but they worked with us to coordinate our schedule for the whole day, which was totally unnecessary, yet invaluable. They mic’ed everyone who would be speaking to their sound equipment. They set up at the appropriate time to make sure their stuff was set up, out of the way of other vendors, and seamlessly integrated into our venue. You can’t put a price on what they did to ensure we had a flawless Wedding. You only get one shot at it, go with Judah Press! More...

Jesse and the Judah Press team were amazing and exactly the right choice for our daughter's wedding! From first contact, their professionalism and dedication to their craft was evident. They took care of everything from the sound equipment and music for the outdoor ceremony, moving the party inside for the reception and keeping all our guests on the dance floor with his DJ mastery. Jesse has excellent master of ceremony skills and kept things moving throughout the evening. Our friends and family have raved about the fun and special atmosphere he helped to create for our daughter and son in law's special day! More...

I would recommend him to anyone. He was so much fun. He got out there on the dance floor with us and kept the party going. He got any songs that we wanted or needed and I really felt like he was there for us and whatever we needed. Hands down he’s the best. More...

From our first meeting with Judah Press we expereinced a level of service and encouragement far beyond what you would expect from a wedding DJ. They covered everything from advice on song choices to amazing recommendations for other vendors. At every step they revisited the vision for our wedding, helping us to create a memorable celebration for our friends and family. This remained true on the wedding day where they not only provided an awesome set list, but also partnered with our wedding coordinator to make the day run smoother than we could have ever imagined! We highly recommend Judah Press Entertainment! More...

Alright couples, let's be real most of us have gone and will go to a million weddings and half the time they are wonderful but not that "fun". WHY?! Because, a DJ is SOOOOO important, not only do they play music, but they bring the energy of the entire evening of the most important night of your life! Judah Press Entertainment was an absolute Godsend. I myself, love to party and wanted to make sure that EVERYONE at my wedding, from the 4 year olds to the 80 year olds would want to dance; and believe me they did! I had the majority of my guests make a point to tell me what a great and fun wedding it was, some even said the best reception they had ever been to. I am not exaggerating! HIRE JUDAH PRESS. Sam was our DJ and he was so helpful, and nailed our "vibe" right on the head. I wish I could relive the night over again! More...

Not only was the crew incredibly professional and prepared, they threw a KILLER party that ended up better than we could have ever expected. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any of my family and friends. Thanks again! More...

Judah Press was great to work with-- professional, easy going, and flexible. They were easy to reach when we had any questions or ideas to run by them. Day of the wedding, I didn't even see Drew until we were coming into the reception and he was already on top of everything making sure we were on the same page. Only minor issue was the sound. We had issues hearing announcements and speeches. So I would encourage some sound checks early, but other than that, everything went well and Drew really did what we asked of him. More...

He was consistently up-beat and always made the effort to say how excited he was to be a part of the big day. He played great music, had our guests dancing, and was ON TOP of everything for the ceremony and reception. I also feel like the pricing for Judah Press is very reasonable. Thanks DJ Drew!! :) More...

Judah Press Entertainment is the best DJ service we could have asked for at our wedding. Drew was an amazing DJ, but he was more that just that because he worked with my coordinator to make sure the entire reception went smoothly and exactly how we planned, or if we didn't plan for something, he was right there to keep things running smoothly. We truly could not have asked for a better DJ for both our ceremony and reception. This company made the entire process from choosing music before our wedding to the end of the night as simply and stress free as it can be when planning a wedding. Drew got the entire crowd dancing, even my mom!, and made our night absolutely perfect! More...

Judah Press is awesome! As with everything there were a few things that did not go according to plan; however we definitely got our money’s worth! Our DJ was Sam; however Jesse , the owner, accompanied him as he wanted a chance to check out our venue. I can't individually evaluate Sam as Jesse was there & he was so great! I'm sure Sam’s great too, but if I were to do it again I would insist on having Jesse as the primary DJ.
Pros:
-Jesse got on the dance floor & taught guests how to do the Cupid Shuffle which was awesome; & he did it in a totally professional non-cheesy way.
-When Jesse was at the controls & he noted less people were dancing he promptly changed the music. He had remixes of Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Gangsta's Paradise that were huge hits with our late Gen- X/ Early Millennial crowd.
-Jesse is such a humble, genuine person, we offered him some of our leftover flowers to take home to his wife and he was extremely grateful.

Cons:
-They did play the wrong song for our recessional which I was disappointed about; primarily because the correct song was listed on our program and people kept asking me about it. Then again I am a huge perfectionist and always looking for ways to improve.
-Sam followed our song list fairly well, we had a lot of slow songs so I told him to improvise so people would keep dancing. Unfortunately, that meant a few key songs weren't played, but obviously I was having too much fun to notice at the time. I wasn’t a fan of a couple of the songs he chose; I should have made it clear that 80’s hair bands and grunge music are NOT my style.
-If you don't want people to be able to request songs or at least not during dinner make that clear as my brother-in-law tipped them into playing Usher's "Confessions" right in the middle of dinner (awkward!).

Overall you can't go wrong with Judah Press, I highly recommend!

Judah Press Entertainment was absolutely wonderful! Our wedding was in July in the North Georgia Mountains, and Judah Press Entertainment went above and beyond to serve us well. Something I really loved about Judah Press Entertainment is Jesse took the time to get to know how story personally so that he could provide the best DJ service for us at our wedding. He really broke things down, and asked specific questions (things we wouldn't have thought about) so that his role went as smoothly as possible. Something else I really loved was how joyful Jesse was at our wedding, and it was so evident he loves what he does. Once Jesse arrived at our venue he had everything he needed and made sure his role was fulfilled in excellence which made our day so much less stressful. Everything was above and beyond, from our first dance song, introduction of the bridal party, and the unforgettable dance party we had on the dance floor. Thank you Judah Press Entertainment for making our wedding day a dream come true. More...

We did not know what we wanted in a DJ/MC until we saw Jesse from Judah Press at my cousin's wedding. I called him the next morning to see if he could do our wedding. Jesse is so personable, hilarious, and caring when it comes to his job that you really forget it is a job. He went so far above and beyond leading up to and especially on our wedding day. He keeps you informed on what is going to happen and when and has a way of making the dance floor not seem intimidating to those more shy. What a great find and for a low low price! Seriously cannot recommend Jesse and Judah Press enough! My husband, my guests, and I still talk about how great he was on our wedding day all the time! More...

Our wedding was a traditional Lao wedding, blended with an American reception. This day included a parade, a ceremony, and traditions- that 95% of the guests, including the groom, were unaccustomed to. Despite this, our big day went down perfectly and everyone had a great time! Jesse's charm, professionalism, and energy was first class all the way! We had a couple of unplanned changes, but Jesse was quick on his toes and so very accommodating. The changes happened unnoticed and seamlessly.
Working with Jesse was a breeze. Communication was easy, quick, and on point. Prior to the wedding Jesse would periodically check in (even while on a flight to HIS honeymoon) and make sure everything was on track. Talk about customer service!
He is respectful, listens to you and your guests, and makes everyone happy. He was able to control a room, in a very assertive but pleasant way, and orchestrated everyone beautifully.
Jesse was one of my larger expenses- and honestly, there were times during the planning process when I would question myself if I budgeted wisely... and the answer is: Absolutely.
His services are priceless. He's more than just a DJ playing music. I can't imagine a better, or more genuine and talented guy than, Jesse, to MC your wedding.
It's been over a year since our big day and people still tell me our wedding was the funnest wedding they've ever been to. Thank you, Jesse.

Jesse was fantastic!! He has such a professional demeanor and provided the perfect mix of fun but also class. He had great suggestions for us as a couple to keep the night flowing (for example: when we should start going around to say hi to guests, when and how we should start the dancing, etc). We gave him a general direction for the music and then let him work his magic choosing the songs. It worked out perfectly.

We were originally going to try to go without a DJ, and I am so glad we didn't. Judah Press is definitely worth every penny. I cannot imagine how our wedding would have been without Jesse. I would recommend Judah Press Entertainment to anyone in a heartbeat!

Jesse with Judah Press Entertainment gave my husband and me some really solid advice when looking for a DJ. He said, keep in mind the person you hire as your DJ serves as the official voice/host of the biggest, most expensive party you'll probably ever throw. Awesome advice and honestly the selling point for bringing Jesse on as our DJ. From the moment we met him we knew he had to be there on our big day-- he immediately felt like a friend and put our wedding planning jitters at ease. Not only does he throw an AMAZING party with the most perfect soundtrack for our day but it was the best feeling to know he had our back if anything were to go wrong or haywire during the day. He was a seriously helpful part of the planning process-- it felt like having a trusted friend there as a safety net which is an invaluable feeling as a bride! One of the best things we did when planning our wedding was building a solid team of vendors-- Jesse was a big, big part of that! Best decision, hands down. More...

So much more than 'just a DJ!' Jesse was phenomenal to work with throughout the entire process - he is a true pro at what he does and is a genuinely awesome and enjoyable person to be around! We were so thankful we had the opportunity to work with Jesse and have him be a part of our wedding. He played such a large role in our day: he handled both our ceremony and our reception flawlessly. He not only played great music and provided such a fun atmosphere, he was truly able to 'read' the crowd and he guided us through our whole day; there was never a moment of "umm what are we supposed to do now?" He timed everything flawlessly even with last minute changes-introduced our bridal party, welcome speech, bridal party speeches, announcements for cake, toast, garter, etc. We even got so busy & chaotic in the weeks leading up to the wedding that we literally forgot to send our music selections to him - until the night before our wedding and he was TOTALLY accommodating! He didn't seem phased or bothered by it at all, everything he did was so seamless and he was even kind enough to reassure us multiple times not to feel terrible for forgetting to send in our music and was kind enough to meet with us in person in Atlanta before our wedding and guided us through everything, answering any and all questions we had. We are so happy we had Jesse for our big day, he truly is a pro at what he does and was hands down one of the best decisions, if not THE best decision we made for our wedding day. Initially, I wanted a live band although my groom did not... I thought a DJ would just be someone with an ipod, but I was so wrong and so lucky to have found Judah Press Ent. They were far more involved with our day than I thought DJ's would be, but knowing now just how essential a good emcee is at your wedding I would have painfully regretted having just a band. He knows how to read a crowd and when/how to react to people and situations accordingly. Amazing guy & amazing service!! More...

Our entire wedding planning became much easier as soon as we hired Jesse. Before we met with him, there seemed to be so many moving parts and confusing options, but Jesse was able to pull everything together. He's so nice and caring, and his role in our wedding was much more than "music guy" or "entertainer." This guy seriously knows the wedding-day process inside and out, and therefore he was able to collaborate seamlessly with our coordinator and other vendors to make our wedding better than we could have dreamed. At our reception, everyone danced--and danced hard! To this day, people often remind us of how "legendary" our dance party was. Without a doubt, that was 100% due to Jesse's ability to stir the crowd. Even our grandparents threw down! From our experience, we learned that having a high quality DJ is absolutely necessary in order to have a fun wedding. And in the dozens of weddings we've been to since our own, Judah Press is the best we've come across: they're knowledgeable, extremely talented, and they really cared about us as people--not merely clients. Looking back now, we would have paid Judah Press twice as much in order to make our day as memorable as it was. Worth every dime, and more. Thank you, Jesse! More...

As a wedding vendor myself (Claire Diana Photography!), I have learned and witnessed firsthand that a DJ can make or break a reception. With Judah Press Entertainment, you're guaranteed an awesome event. They know how to work a crowd & keep a party going. They're a very personal company & customize their services to fit your event perfectly. I've seen a lot of DJs, and they're definitely one of the best I've ever worked with. I HIGHLY recommend them.

Judah Press provided all of our sound equipment for our ceremony and reception, ran sound for our ceremony, and DJd the greatest party of our lives--they seriously play all the right music. Everyone danced at our reception so long we left an hour later than we planned! These guys are full of energy and love for their clients. Jesse really takes the time to know his clients on a personal level and invest in them. He has a heart of gold-you will not be disappointed. We have recommended them to everyone we know, they are THAT good! More...

Jesse Pilkenton and Judah Press are the best in the business when it comes to mixing professionalism, excellence, and fun. Having them work any event - whether it be weddings, parties, church events, conferences, etc. - takes loads of worry and stress off of the one holding the event and adds loads of joy. Jesse is a master of ensuring that everybody have a great time and feel comfortable in any environment, whether that be capturing the beauty and tenderness of a husband and wife's first dance or encouraging humor and silliness on the dance floor til the end of the reception. Booking Judah Press Entertainment will not disappoint or fail expectations. More...

My husband and I had a fantastic experience with Jesse. Not only was he able to turn the dance floor into a party but he did other things! He made sure he had a detailed schedule of the night so that he could give those who needed it microphones. He kept track of time and would come to us and give us 10 min warnings before we needed to do things like first dance, cutting the cake, etc so that we were able to wrap up visiting out tables. He also stepped in and helped the caterer with making sure we had what we needed at our table as well as making sure our guest were happy. All that to say, not only was he a great DJ but he was a great emcee and always willing to help our other vendors. We heard that a DJ could make or break a classy wedding and Jesse definitely made it! More...

My husband and I had Judah Press Entertainment DJ our wedding in Athens and we couldn't have picked a better DJ Service!! We worked directly with Jesse and he took so much care in making sure that the dance floor stayed packed with clean music and never played any songs on our "do no play" list. We barely had to provide guidance, he completely gets it and is such a fun DJ to have! I didn't realize we'd make a lifelong friend out of it, the care this company takes in keeping in touch with their clients even after the fact is unheard of. I would choose them all over again. Brides: planning a wedding is stressful, keeping up with vendors is stressful, do yourself a favor- go with Judah Press Entertainment and I promise you won't be disappointed and you won't have to worry about another thing, they completely understand how to be a great DJ and let you have one less thing to stress over. I would give them more than 5 stars if that was an option!!! More...

I mean the dancing is contagious and energetic and his interactions with the party and the crowds of a wedding helps bring life to that place!! You will have people that claim to not dance get up and get after it and enjoy themselves. If you are looking for a DJ to bring joy and life and fun to a party, wedding, youth group gathering, etc.....you go with Judah Press hands down!! More...

Choosing Judah Press Entertainment could very well be the absolute best decision you make next to choosing your respective spouse on your wedding day. I have attended a wedding in Georgia where Judah Press was the DJ... I can honestly say it was the best time I have EVER had at a wedding. And I am not alone... the entire reception was filled for hours and the bride and groom even stayed until late in the evening. It was as if this DJ knew perfectly every age and personality in that room, and he was playing hits that got every single body up and moving. The atmosphere was JUST. SO. FUN. Not only that, it was classy. There were no older couples frowning upon a dirty dance floor. And there were no young folks bored because of the typical reception repetitives. It was a perfect blend for everyone. And I loved that he did not place the focus on himself but the bride and groom, even engaging the crowd in the most adorable games that highlighted the couple on their big day. Judah Press is so friendly yet professional. They will listen to your every need and make your reception a night to remember... and one you don't have to stress about. I would recommend Judah Press to everyone! More...

We loved, loved, loved having Jesse DJ our wedding. Out of all of the compliments we received throughout our reception and after our wedding day, they were all about Jesse! Jesse was the piece to our wedding that left a lasting impression on our family and friends. We love to dance and have friends and family that love to dance, and Jesse definitely brought the party! In the planning process Jesse was very organized, always responded to communications quickly, provided great ideas to make our reception more personal, and was always very genuine and intentional in communicating that he was going to go to every effort to make sure he made our wedding reception the best night of our lives. And, he definitely followed through! On our wedding day, Jesse got to our reception site early and was prepared for every part of the day. He led the flow of the reception very well and in implementing his ideas he engaged our guests throughout the entire night. Also, he had asked for our top 10 songs we wanted to hear and songs we definitely did not want to be played and he followed through with those requests, too. His high energy, great music selection and awesome dance moves made for the best dance party of our lives! Many of our guests shared with us that our wedding reception was the best one they had ever been to and we have Jesse to thank for those high compliments. I have and will continue to recommend Jesse for my friends’ and family members’ weddings, because he does an amazing job! Thank you, Jesse, for making our wedding day better than we could have ever imagined! More...

Our budget was tight and we were hesitant to spend money on a DJ when we could just hire my Dad's friend to run the iPod. Same experience, right?WRONG!Judah Press Entertainment was EASILY the best money we spent on our entire wedding. We have been (seriously) raving about them and begging our friends to use them since. They don't just control the music, they control the environment. We had over 350 guests and ALL of them (including the ones that hate dancing) were going crazy on the dance floor. What I love most best about their services, however, is that Jesse was committed to protecting us as a couple. He instructed guests to give us 15 minutes to eat and stood as body guard, lovingly shooing people away so we could soak it all in. It sounds mean but it was A-MAZ-ING. Then he helped us go visit with the elderly, families with kids, and needy guests first so that when it was time to dance, everyone felt loved and no one was yanking us off the dance floor. One zillion raving recommendations for Judah Press Entertainment. (Ps- If this was helpful, thank me by invite Aaron and I to your reception. We won't eat anything but would pay money to attend a Judah Press party again.) More...

My husband and I could not have asked for anything better than Judah Press Entertainment for our wedding this past year! In the months and weeks leading up to the wedding, both Jesse and Drew went out of their way to get to know us both better so that they could help make our special day exactly what we wanted. We were able help plan out the entire reception with him prior to the day and map out how we wanted it all to flow! This made the day so much easier and enjoyable when it got there! The atmosphere that Drew created was so great and everyone had so much fun! All that being said, they did so much more than just play music at our wedding. They were a huge part of making the day exactly what we had dreamed of thanks to all the extra time and effort put into it far before our big day got there! The experience that we had with them was unbelievable! We loved it! I would HIGHLY recommend Judah Press Entertainment! More...

My husband and I recently got married, and from the beginning of our wedding planning, one detail was for sure: Judah Press Entertainment would DJ our wedding, no doubt about it.

Jesse is a fantastic entertainer and a brilliant facilitator of a good time. He knows people, he knows music, he knows business, and he knows fun. Jesse helped us craft our vision for our reception dance party and executed it beautifully. Beyond just the dancing, he paid careful attention to every single detail of our wedding: from the timing of music for our bridal procession into the ceremony to the coordinating of the sparkler exit at the end of the night.

Jesse made sure all our wishes were heard and made them happen. He went above and beyond to make our day special for us, and we are so thankful! We recommend him with the highest of confidence that he will make your celebration fantastic!

We cannot recommend Jesse & Judah Press Entertainment highly enough!! When my husband and I envisioned our wedding reception we knew we wanted an awesome dance party, so the DJ decision was really important to us. Jesse met with us before the wedding, got a feel for what we wanted, and worked with us to create a schedule for the reception. Once we kicked off the dancing, there was never any room on the dance floor! Even my dad was out there, and that was literally the only time I've ever seen him dancing before. Jesse read the crowd with skill, played a great variety of music, and it was all clean. In addition to that, my event coordinator went home sick midway through our reception, but I didn't even know until after our honeymoon because Jesse kept the whole evening running smoothly! Several of our guests have asked us about our DJ, as well as people who were not even at our wedding but heard the reception was awesome! Throughout the whole process Jesse maintained the highest professionalism and exceeded our expectations. He is also a fantastic guy to have leading your guests in a new dance :) You will not regret booking with Judah Press! More...

For my wedding, I remember asking Jesse to play fun, up beat music. We wanted a mix of music to keep people entertained and dancing. And Jesse Did JUST that!! I can't remember one dull moment from the whole night. Everyone was dancing, laughing (mostly at us!), and just having a great time. I say people were laughing at us because Jesse made us play a game in the middle of our reception. A game during a reception I'd never heard of that before, but Jesse had an idea and I trusted him as our DJ. The game was called "Him or Her." Jesse had us sit in the middle of the dance floor, backs to each other. We held a shoe in each hand (one our own and the other theirs). He would then ask questions like "Who made the first move?" "Who is the first one to apologize?" You get the gist. After each question we both held up a shoe of the answer. And let me tell you, it was SO FUN!!! This is something I will never forget. It made the environment fun and got the crowd involved because they were curious of who did what!! Overall, I would highly recommend Jesse as a DJ because he makes it personal and FUN!! He listens to your requests and makes it happen! He was prepared and very professional. He also made personal introductions for each couple that walked in from the wedding ceremony into the reception. This was special for me because it was something to show our bridesmaids and groomsmen how appreciative of them we were! I'd book him again for any event in a heartbeat!! More...

If you don't book this DJ, you will regret it! Judah Press Entertainment is the greatest group of guys we have ever encountered. They provided all of the sound equipment for our ceremony and reception (and didn't have to tear down in between), ran sound for our outdoor wedding reception, and DJ'd the greatest reception/party of our lives. Seriously, they can throw an amazing party! What sets these guys apart, however, is their incredible heart for their clients. They took me and my fiance out for drinks to talk about our wedding, get to know us, and really invest in our marriage in more ways than just being our DJ. They are one of the most incredible guys we know, and we feel truly honored to have them be part of our big day! We love everything about these guys-they made our wedding stress-free and incredibly fun.

Jesse goes above and beyond for each bride and groom - his intentionality to each couple is unmatched in the industry. We had Jesse run sound for our ceremony and cocktail hour, and then DJ our reception, and could not have made a better decision. He helped us map out the flow for each part, and when it was time to party - he helped us break it down like no one else. When we were outside taking pictures we knew he was keeping everyone engaged because we could hear the music bumpin'! Everyone has said how much fun they had and how awesome He was! His attitude and intention to serve are so special and you will truly feel like he takes every idea you have ,and helps you take them to the next level. The value he added to our day was truly worth more than anything else we could have paid for. You will not regret getting to know him and having him make your day all you want it to be! More...

We really couldn't have asked for a better DJ than Jesse and Judah Press Entertainment. We could really tell that Jesse's number one goal was to create a setting that personified Tommy and I as a couple. He truly cared about us and our desires for the reception. He didn't want to just manufacture the same old atmosphere with the same old playlist and punchlines- he wanted that reception to be unique to us and a party that we nor any of our guests would ever forget. And he nailed it. We still get people to this day (3 years later) telling us how much fun they had and asking us who that DJ was. Jesse created and facilitated an unforgettable experience for us for which we are forever grateful. I would recommend Judah Press Entertainment to anyone and everyone who is looking for a party that will be talked about for years to come. More...

We chose to work with Jesse of Judah Press after having a blast at a friends wedding that he DJed and are SO glad we did. He went above and beyond in helping us out, not only with our music, but also with helping us envision our reception and how to make it run smoothly. He is very easy to work with and it is so clear how much he loves people. We really wanted a reception where people would dance and celebrate with us and Jesse's enthusiasm and energy helped make that happen. Not to mention his awesome dance moves :) He worked with us to make sure we were able to get the feel we wanted at the ceremony and reception in a way that really made it feel personalized. We still hear comments from friends and family about how much fun they had. We could not recommend him more highly! More...

Jesse is a fantastic and talented DJ!! Patrick and I would highly recommend him over and over. He did an excellent job during the planning stages as well as the day of the wedding. I had to change a few things at the last minute because of rain and he came up with awesome ideas. Our reception was a blast! He knows how to engage the crowd and make the celebration fun for everyone. The music was perfect and everyone had a great time dancing. We are so grateful for Jesse's talent in creating such a memorable day. More...

Jesse was the best! He's super personable and friendly and made a real effort to get to know us personally to ensure that our wedding say was perfect. We didn't provide a playlist, but he absolutely nailed the music. The dance floor was hopping all night, and he did a great job engaging the crowd. On top of that, he was very reasonable on pricing. I would definitely recommend Judah Press if you're looking for a DJ. More...

We could not have asked for a better DJ for our wedding! As a bride, having several different concerns/stresses about her wedding, one thing I did not need to worry about whatsoever was the music, which believe me, was a huge load off my plate! I remember I was literally down to the weekend of my wedding trying to select certain songs for the ceremony and Jesse was so patient and willing to do whatever was needed! The music, the service, the attitude, the encouragement, the prayers, EVERYTHING was so phenomenal and truly helped make our wedding so memorable for us! We had SOOO many guests/friends/family members compliment the music and DJ from our wedding and tell us it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to! We love Jesse and would definitely recommend him, as well as any member of Judah Press Entertainment. Thank you so much Jesse Pilkenton :):):) More...

People probably won't remember the color of the napkins at their tables, but they'll remember whether they had a good time at the reception. In that regard, Judah Press Entertainment might be the smartest call you could make throughout the wedding planning process. Not only have I see this DJ in action at multiple weddings, but I hear stories from friends who rave about how he gets rear ends moving on the dance floor! You can tell his heart is so genuine in caring about each couple that he works with as well. It's a no-brainer! Hire Jesse at Judah Press entertainment! More...

Hands down the best DJ I've ever come across. Our entire wedding planning became much easier as soon as we hired Jesse. Before we met with him, there seemed to be so many moving parts and confusing options, but Jesse was able to pull everything together. He's so nice and caring, and his role in our wedding was much more than "music guy" or "entertainer." This guy seriously knows the wedding-day process inside and out, and therefore he was able to collaborate seamlessly with our coordinator and other vendors to make our wedding better than we could have dreamed. At our reception, everyone danced--and danced hard! To this day, people often remind us of how "legendary" our dance party was. Without a doubt, that was 100% due to Jesse's ability to stir the crowd. Even our grandparents threw down! From our experience, we learned that having a high quality DJ is absolutely necessary in order to have a fun wedding. And in the dozens of weddings we've been to since our own, Judah Press is the best we've come across: they're knowledgeable, extremely talented, and they really cared about us as people--not merely clients. Looking back now, we would have paid Judah Press twice as much in order to make our day as memorable as it was. Worth every dime, and more. Thank you, Jesse! More...

Our budget was tight and we were hesitant to spend money on a DJ when we could just hire my Dad's friend to run the iPod. Same experience, right?

WRONG!

Judah Press Entertainment was EASILY the best money we spent on our entire wedding. We have been (seriously) raving about them and begging our friends to use them since. They don't just control the music, they control the environment. We had over 350 guests and ALL of them (including the ones that hate dancing) were going crazy on the dance floor.

What I love most best about their services, however, is that Jesse was committed to protecting us as a couple. He instructed guests to give us 15 minutes to eat and stood as body guard, lovingly shooing people away so we could soak it all in. Then he helped us go visit with the elderly, families with kids, and needy guests first so that when it was time to dance, everyone felt loved and no one was yanking us off the dance floor.

One zillion raving recommendations for Judah Press Entertainment. (Ps- If this was helpful, thank me by invite Aaron and I to your reception. We won't eat anything but would pay money to attend a Judah Press party again.)

My wedding day was two years ago and I am still so thankful Jesse from Judah Press was our DJ! We loved, loved, loved having Jesse DJ our wedding. Out of all of the compliments we received throughout our reception and after our wedding day, they were all about Jesse! Jesse was the piece to our wedding that left a lasting impression on our family and friends. We love to dance and have friends and family that love to dance, and Jesse definitely brought the party! In the planning process Jesse was very organized, always responded to communications quickly, provided great ideas to make our reception more personal, and was always very genuine and intentional in communicating that he was going to go to every effort to make sure he made our wedding reception the best night of our lives. And, he definitely followed through! On our wedding day, Jesse got to our reception site early and was prepared for every part of the day. He led the flow of the reception very well and in implementing his ideas he engaged our guests throughout the night. Also, he had asked for our top 10 songs we wanted to hear and songs we definitely did not want to be played and he followed through with those requests, too. His high energy, great music selection and awesome dance moves made for the best dance party of our lives! Many of our guests shared with us that our wedding reception was the best one they had ever been to and we have Jesse to thank for those high compliments. I have and will continue to recommend Jesse for my friends’ and family members’ weddings, because he does an amazing job! Thank you, Jesse, for making our wedding day better than we could have ever imagined! More...

Judah Press Entertainment is awesome! They are very thorough, detailed and organized. We met several times before my wedding, making me feel very comfortable with them. I easily trusted them and knew they'd throw an awesome party. THEY THREW AN AWESOME PARTY! Everyone, I mean EVERYONE, was dancing at my wedding. They understood the group of people coming to my wedding and played music everyone could dance to. The DJ pronounced all of my wedding parties names correctly, was very attentive to my needs, and an awesome host. More...

I have also been at weddings where Judah Press worked. Again, totally professional, appropriate, and reliable. I have never seen so many people on the floor at one time. They remain the only DJ i will use. -Dave Hall, FBC Brunswick

I have been to a lot of weddings, and more importantly a lot of wedding receptions. If you think about it, the only thing anyone ever really remembers is the reception, because most the time the wedding ceremony is only about 15 or 20 minutes long. As far as receptions go, I've seen them all. I've been to live band receptions, dj receptions, a mixture of each, and even ipod driven receptions. Out of all of these, the absolute best one I've ever been to was my own! Don't get me wrong, being the center of attention was pretty nice, but it was honestly Jesse Pilkenton of Judah Press Entertainment that made it super special. Not only did he make a playlist specific to our desires, but he also did a heck of a job MC-ing. I have never been to a wedding reception that had a dance floor as packed out as this one, and there were no lulls or an empty dance floor. He was out there dancing with us, laughing with us, and keeping it all very lively and fun! Hands down, he did the best job I've ever seen a DJ do. If you want to have a memoriable and classy reception or get together, you HAVE to hire Judah Press Entertainment!!!! More...

We really couldn't have asked for a better DJ than Jesse and Judah Press Entertainment. We could really tell that Jesse's number one goal was to create a setting that personified Lora and I as a couple. He truly cared about us and our desires for the reception. He didn't want to just manufacture the same old atmosphere with the same old playlist and punchlines- he wanted that reception to be unique to us and a party that we nor any of our guests would ever forget. And he nailed it. We still get people to this day (3 years later) telling us how much fun they had and asking us who that DJ was. Jesse created and facilitated an unforgettable experience for us for which we are forever grateful. I would recommend Judah Press Entertainment to anyone and everyone who is looking for a party that will be talked about for years to come. More...

Sometimes it's hard to explain how valuable a great DJ can be, but it's one of those behind-the-scenes aspects of your wedding that you want solid. With Judah Press Entertainment, the value is obvious. I'm a wedding videographer and have seen my fair share of DJs over the years. Never before have I seen a company so acute and in-tune to the needs and desires of a couple's ceremony and reception. They offer seamless event fluidity on another level. Sure enough, that's what we got. It's more than pressing Play, people - your Grandpappy could do that for you. Going with JPE really is insurance for one of the most important 6-8 hours of your life as well as peace of mind that your event will be everything you dreamed it would be. Literally, the search for your DJ ends here. More...

My wife and I made a great choice using Jesse and Judah Press Entertainment. Jesse made it very easy to make a playlist and run sound for our ceremony. He was there long before we even arrived the day before and there long after we left. There are people that are still talking about how much fun that they had at the reception and I know Judah Press was a large factor in that. I would recommend Jesse and Judah Press Entertainment to anyone! More...

AMAZING!!! Jesse was our DJ for our wedding reception and he was spectacular! He took the time to get to know my husband and I before our wedding so he knew what style of reception we wanted. All of our guests commented on how fun the reception was and how they loved that he played music they could actually dance to. To this day, (2 yrs later) people are still talking about how awesome the music at our reception was. Our first dance song was 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight' (I LOVE Disney) and he even found the version that had Timon and Pumba singing it! That is how awesome he is and how he took the time to get to know us!! I recommend him to all of my friends! Thank you so much Jesse!!! More...

My husband and I hired Jesse of Judah Press Entertainment for our wedding reception. Hiring a DJ is far more than just hiring someone to play music, it's hiring someone who really knows how to read the crowd and host a party. Jesse exceeded our expectations in both areas. He did a fantastic job creating a flow that worked for our party and read the crowd incredibly well (which I think is a rare find). Jesse is attentive, professional, and a blast to be around! We had several guests come up to us and ask where we found our DJ and received a multitude of compliments on our wonderful entertainment. We highly recommend Judah Press Entertainment for any event and Jesse has our loyalty for any other event we throw in the future. More...

Within just a couple weeks of being engaged, Jesse was recommended to me by 2 different trusted friends to be our wedding DJ, so I knew I needed to contact this guy. From the first interaction on the phone with Jesse (who my husband and I now lovingly call DJJ), I knew we had to book him. He didn't know me or my husband from Adam but he was so enthusiastic about our wedding from the beginning and excited to be a part of our day. He was so easy to work with and was super reachable during the planning process. He was our DJ for just the reception yet he sat down with us prior to our wedding and discussed the details of the whole day, but especially the reception. With his extensive experience of weddings, he was able to give us great insight about practical ideas that would make our day a lot smoother, and we solidified music, timing, and other details that he takes care of. We felt so at ease after meeting with him. On the day of, we were able to just enjoy the reception and not worry about what to do next and at what time because Jesse took care of all of it. The reception was so much fun and went off without a hitch, and we attribute all of that to our super fun and DJ. He was the absolute best and I recommend him to anyone! More...

Judah Press Entertainment offers fantastic service while bringing life and fun to the party! Jesse was very easy to work with throughout the planning, as well as the day of the event. His personality is very upbeat and positive, making the entire process enjoyable and fun. He has great experience and knowledge in the entertainment industry and was very helpful in guiding us through the flow of the entire event. He has great skill in getting anyone out on the dance floor regardless of their age by playing a wide variety of music that everyone enjoys. He is very interactive in the dance party and a ton of fun to have among your guests. We are big fans of Jesse as a person as well as a DJ. We highly recommend Judah Press Entertainment for your next event! More...

hen we started planning our wedding, a couple of things didn't require any thought. One of those things was where the music for the reception would come from. We had been to weddings and events that Jesse had DJ'd for before, and it was always wonderful and fun. When we reached out to Jesse and he decided to DJ our wedding, he was always professional, prompt and up front. We always knew what to expect and meetings never really felt like 'meetings.' Anytime with Jesse is a fun time. On the wedding day, everything was a blur, but we had no worries. From the time we said 'I Do' to the time we were driving away, Jesse facilitated everything perfectly. There were no awkward transitions, no times where people were wondering 'what to do next' and EVERYBODY was having a great time! People of all ages enjoyed themselves both on and off the dance floor. In the days following our wedding, everybody commented on a few aspects of our special day that stuck out to them, specifically. One of the things that was a constant from everyone that attended was that the DJ was absolutely wonderful at bridging any kind of 'generational' gap that may have existed between guests and stewarding the direction of our reception to a place that made everyone feel like dancing and having fun. Jesse is unbelievably good at what he does, and we are honored to call him one of our most cherished friends. More...

When planning your wedding there's the ever-present debate of DJ or band. Well, let me make that decision easy for you, if you can get Jesse as your DJ, then stop the talk and make it happen. My wife and I live in California but as we are both from Georgia we ended up getting married at the Botanical Gardens in Athens. We were looking for a DJ and our wedding planner recommended Jesse and we couldn't have been happier. We talked over Skype and immediately liked his attitude, enthusiasm and adaptability. We communicated through email a couple of times and then finally met in person the weekend of the wedding. He did a fantastic job with the music but even more importantly he did an amazing job controlling the pace and energy of the wedding. He knew when to switch up the pace of the music to give people a chance to rest or to get people dancing again. Additionally, he had my wife and I play a game that we appropriately called the Shoe Game that for many people was a definite highlight of the reception. We can honestly say that without Jesse, our wedding would not have been the success that it was and we will forever be grateful to him for making our special day so perfect More...

He was very easy to work with, and even had some awesome ideas that we absolutely enjoyed (ask about The Shoe Game!).

Jesse was an absolute joy to work with, and we were so fortunate to have him in such a key position on our big day. He kept the party going, made our reception the liveliest party, and interacted with our guests as if he were a part of the family! Also, I'll never ever forget that up until the day of the wedding Jesse & I had never met (but we had talked a loooooot on the phone picking out songs and such) and he came by the church as I was getting ready for the ceremony to give me a hug, say a quick prayer, and assure me that all was taken care of at the reception. What a blessing for a bride to hear that she has nothing to think about on her big day except for that walk down the aisle. Thanks Jesse!! More...
