If we could give him 10 stars, we would! We couldn't have been happier with Derald as our DJ for our wedding. From the first time talking with him before the wedding through the last song, he was attentive, helpful, energetic, and fun! He was so helpful with running the reception as the emcee. One thing I really appreciated was how willing he was to put on requested songs and songs that had the same type of feel and energy. He even picked up on a detail from the best man's speech to play our favorite song as the first song for everyone to dance to as the dancefloor got going. Absolutely amazing. More...

We found Derald at a South Bend wedding expo, I am so glad we went with him for our dj services! He and his team went above and beyond any expectation I had. I loved how interactive he was with our guests and having just as much fun as we did on the dance floor. He was very professional and asking all the important questions you'd want from your wedding dj. ALL of our wedding guests loved him! Keep up the great work:) More...

I met Derald and DG Visionaries at a bridal expo when I overheard him talking to a bride a few spots ahead of me in line and he said, “I just like to instigate people and get the party going. ” Between that and the energy that he was exuding, I instantly knew that he had the right personality to keep a reception going. When my fiancé and I met with Derald to discuss the details of our wedding, Derald was extremely organized and professional, but also very warm and caring; he genuinely wanted to know about us so that he could tailor his work to our specific reception. In a last-ditch effort to try and incorporate many of our loved ones who were unable to attend our wedding, we hired DG Visionaries to also livestream our wedding. Again, Derald was very organized, professional, and prompt in communication to help us put this in action. He livestreamed our full ceremony at the church, and then moved venues to livestream the live Irish band we had at cocktail hour and continued to livestream through the end of the mother-son dance. As the reception went on, that is where the real magic happened! To say that Derald kept people engaged and kept the party going is an understatement. He is, without exaggeration, the number one thing that people talked about at the wedding and the best DJ any of us has ever seen in action. So many guests asked me if we knew Derald outside of wedding planning, and I even asked a few guests if they knew Derald outside of the reception, because Derald is just that guy that will make best friends with anyone and make sure that person has a good time. Derald made sure to play everyone’s favorites and even joined the dance floor to make sure people were having a good time. His charisma was just infectious and made our reception so much better than I could have imagined! More...

During my search for a wedding DJ I spoke with countless others as I was looking for a very specific experience. I can honestly say that during my search Derald was the only person who met all the criteria I was wanting. I was wanting a professional, fun personality to keep things upbeat and moving. He absolutely blew my expectations out of the water with the day of performance. I needed someone who was extremely organized during the planning process; again he exceeded expectations. Derald was willing to meet several times to go over all the details and answer my many questions.

The day of the wedding everything regarding him went absolutely flawless. He was willing to remain flexible with last minute details that changed. The guest knew exactly what was happening when (another one of my major concerns). The announcements discussed were all in place. Most importantly he kept the guest entertained, interactive, and out on the dance floor. The music choices left up to him were perfect! There is absolutely nothing I would have changed with the experience working with Derald. I cannot recommend him highly enough!! To anyone looking for a fantastic DJ, Derald is your guy!!

We'll play a slow song then afterwards play a banger.
We'll play a special song from the bride and groom’s “must play” song list and make sure guests know the song was hand picked by them.
We'll play a Group Dance Song like the Cupid Shuffle or the Cha Cha Slide

We’re professional, experienced, and very skilled at what we do. We take great pride in our mixing skills and keep you and your guests involved at all times. We take the time to get to know you so you can have the best wedding day possible. We’re upbeat, modern, and create fun experiences you’ll never forget.

Being adopted for a day and making lifelong memories with our couples and their families

DG Visionaries is the culmination of everything I love about the power of telecommunications. It’s a physical manifestation resulting from years of trial and error in my attempt to perfect the art of visual and auditory storytelling.

After completing my undergrad at Ball State University I noticed a severe lack of businesses in the creative industry that cared about their client's vision just as much as their own vision.

Thus, DG Visionaries was born. We believe in utilizing our tools, resources, creativity, and professional experience to help people just like you turn their visions into reality.

No project is too big or too small, and we've worked with dozens of clients across Indiana and beyond on various projects including weddings, concerts, short films, and music videos to name a few. Our team of Visionaries think outside the box in order to deliver a final product that can be remembered for decades to come.

Because we take our role as a DJ seriously. Our team will help you plan your wedding day down to the minute using our advanced online wedding planning system. Along with song requests we also help you organize your wedding day events and coordinate with your vendors to make sure everyone’s on the same page. We promptly respond to texts, emails, and phone calls to make sure you’re taken care of.
