Duerell is an incredible DJ! I have been married for 2 months now, but still get compliments about him weekly. I came across Duerell's website after a never ending search for lack luster wedding DJ's. When I found his website, it's like all of my prayers had been answered! He was exactly what I was looking for. Someone who could actually DJ, not just be a glorified play list. I immediately contacted Duerell and was so happy to hear that our wedding date was available. We had a unique situation where we needed him for a whole weekend, to DJ various events. We kept in touch multiple times through out the year. Duerell makes planning easy with an online planning portal. A week before our wedding we were able to meet with Duerell and hash out the details of the whole weekend. Duerell immediately set the tone at our wedding reception. He gets your guests involved and excited for the reception thats about to happen. Throughout the night Duerell was able to read the crowd and tell what kind of music to play next. He kept the crowd dancing the whole night, there was never a lull. If you're thinking about booking Duerell, you ABSOLUTELY should, he's the best vendor decision you'll make for your wedding day! More...

Best wedding DJ ever! You need to hire Duerell if you are getting married and want an awesome dance party. Duerell provided incredible service from start to finish and the music was the best of any wedding I have been to (in my very biased opinion). The dance floor was packed from start to finish and guests all ages were dancing. Duerell did an amazing job catering to music for all ages. I can't recommend Duerell and Spark Entertainment Group more highly! More...

I got married on October 5, 2019 and it was the best day ever in large part thanks to our incredible DJ. Words can’t begin to describe how amazing Duerell Jones and Spark Entertainment Group are! Spark has an easy to use website which makes the planning process easy. We worked directly with Duerell who has a 10/10 personality. He just is professional, kind and a lot of fun. He brought his enthusiasm for music and fun-loving personality to our wedding which made him the perfect MC. Our dance floor was packed from the moment Duerell started playing until the minute our wedding ended. It was definitely lit! People who usually leave early stayed late to dance because they loved the DJ so much. It’s been over a week since our wedding and our friends are still commenting on how amazing our DJ was and that they had a blast. Thank you, Duerell and team! More...

A DJ can make or break a wedding and Spark did not disappoint! We were so impressed during the planning process how easy and helpful Duerell was. He helped us from the timeline, how to keep the flow of the night going, what sort of music he suggested based upon talking with us and our tastes during all parts of the evening. We were blown away by his knowledge and professionalism. The day of the wedding we had Tim as our DJ. He was phenomenal! We had 250 guests and he literally kept everyone out on the dance floor all night. He stayed true to our likes and dislikes but also used his own expertise to keep the party going all night long. Nothing but great experiences from everyone at the Spark entertainment group. More...

Before starting the wedding planning process, I never imagined myself spending a lot time with selecting a DJ for our wedding. We spent about 3 months interviewing DJ's, but none of them felt like, "the one". I also realized that the DJ plays an important role in the wedding reception and that we needed the perfect person that could create the right atmosphere for our guests. We met with DJ Jones in his comfortable River North office on a Sunday afternoon. We were with him for about an hour and a half and were totally blown away by him. He came across as someone that was experienced and knowledgeable in his field. Before the wedding, he always responded to my many emails quickly.On the day of the wedding, he did an outstanding job at keeping our guests out on the dance floor. The dance floor was never empty and many guests commented on how well he did. More...

DJones was a superb DJ and an integral part of our perfect day! Many of our guests complimented us on his MC'ing and playlist selections. He was a professional from the first call we had months in advance to our actual wedding day. 10/10 would highly recommend if you want a person that hypes up your wedding (without going too overboard on the mic) and provides a blend of tunes that will have your guests dancing the night away. Thanks again, DJones! More...

I've never been so impressed! I'm a wedding photographer and I have NEVER written a review of another vendor, but felt compelled to in this case. I personally worked with DJ D. Jones at a wedding and HE IS INCREDIBLE. He's creative, lively, professional, and really knows how to draw a crowd. The music was so fresh and original, I wish I could listen to it on my own time! I've worked with so many DJs over the course of my career, and have never seen anything as awesome as I did with him and his team. I'll recommend him again and again! More...

Finding a DJ is probably one of the hardest things to do for a wedding. You want to make sure you get one that keeps your guest on the dance floor all throughout the night. Most DJ don’t!
Well this was not the case with DJ Djones! He was truly amazing throughout the whole night. He kept the party going and used a wide variety of music to do it. He is very hands on and interactive with the crowd throughout the whole event. He was an excellent MC and host. He worked well with other vendors that we had at the wedding as well. We got so many compliments the next day asking where did we find the DJ? That he was excellent and that they had a blast! Thank you so much DJ DJones for making our wedding nothing but amazing.
Things I really like about DJ Djones is that he hosts two meetings and a walk through with you. This way he can create your perfect day and play all the songs to your absolute liking. He had a detailed schedule of the entire wedding and kept us on track from beginning to end. I definitely give him 5 stars all across the board he was extremely helpful and easy to reach throughout the whole process. Once again thank you DJ DJones.

Duerell (DJ D. Jones), Tim (DJ Once Chance), and Spark Entertainment were easily the best part of our wedding! They bring an element of DJing and professionalism that I believe no other DJ's could provide. My wife and I were at a market in Chicago near Wrigleyville and nearby DJ Once Chance was DJing at a bar. Everyone outside was enjoying the music and my wife was like we need to get his card and have him DJ at our wedding! That's how we got connected with Duerell DJ D. Jones who owns Spark Entertainment Group. He made us feel so comfortable and was the best to work with. He even has an online portal that allowed us to just upload the music we wanted which made the process so easy. We also had a problem with our sound system last minute for our ceremony and the event space wanted to charge us a lot to use their sound system. We went to Duerell and he accommodated us right away at the half price. He even was there himself to set it up and play the music for us during the ceremony. We knew we could count on him for whatever we needed. Later that night DJ One Chance rocked the reception and everyone is still raving about how amazing he was. We would go with DuerelI and his team for any event and will definitely recommend him and DJ One Chance to everyone I know. More...

Where do I begin, from the moment we met with DJ Jones we knew that he was going to be the DJ for our wedding. Our initial meeting was very thorough and professional. He was very welcoming and we left our initial consultation with so many great ideas he had suggested. After booking, throughout the entire wedding planning process he was there to answer any questions we had and his response time is amazing! We met with him consistently and he even came to the rehearsal prepared with his equipment. He did an amazing job on our wedding day. He even surprised my husband and I with fireworks during our first dance. How awesome was that!! Our Gobo was amazing that he created, it was tricky and he managed to find the perfect spot for it.

Duerell is professional, responsive, easy to work with, and GREAT at keeping your dance floor packed all night. I was LITERALLY on the dance floor the entire time! We got so many compliments on how fun our big day was and have so many great momentos of our guests having a great time on the dance floor. I am African and my husband in Puerto Rican. We enjoy all types of music and Duerell was somehow able to seamlessly flow from one type of music to another in a way that kept everyone entertained all night.

First off - D Jones is just the MAN! We were terrified of hiring a cheesy wedding DJ that couldn't pack a dance floor without the over-played, quintessential wedding playlist ("Don't Stop Believing", "Electric Slide", you get the idea). From the very first meeting, Duerell blew us away with the extra effort and personal touches he put into winning our business. He was always quick to respond to us and his online planning portal made the entire process super easy. D handled every special request we threw his way...extra mics for a live performance during our first dance, a custom edit of our recessional song... and he was even there for our venue walk-thru and rehearsal. On the big day he knocked it out of the freakin' park! The only complaint our guests had was that they had to leave the dance floor at some point to get another drink because they didn't want to miss a single song. If you want professional service, someone with great ear for audio levels, and a DJ who can read a room to find what makes a crowd dance - book this dude NOW. Great price/value and worth every penny!
