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...

DJ D Jones was very professional and a pleasure to work with. He is very experienced and it shows in his method and organizational skills and process. Made wedding planning smooth and he was always ready to go above and beyond to help us execute our event effectively. He is connected in the community and worked extremely well with our other vendors. We are so happy we chose him for our big day. More...

DJ D. Jones kept the dance floor full the whole night!

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...

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...

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.

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.

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. He rocked the dance floor the entire night!!! Thank you for your wonderful customer service and excellent skills and equipment! We couldn’t have made a better choice or decision! More...

Dj D. Jones was the very 1st vendor we booked after booking our venue space. He was recommended by the venue event coordinator, and we could not have asked for a better recommendation. 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. Duerell really enjoys connecting with wedding guests and takes his roll as an emcee seriously. We really enjoyed the energy that he brought to our wedding and would hire him all over again if we could. Thank you so much Duerell! More...

HIRE HIM NOW IF YOU WANT THE BEST!!! No competition! Duerell was the DJ/MC for my wedding on April 13th, 2019 and if I could give him 1 Billion stars I would! He is the best there is! My husband and I couldn't have hired a better DJ/MC for our wedding day! Duerell is truly unmatched! He is extremely attentive, organized, professional, and passionate. He is well versed in ALL genres of music! The first time we met with Duerell we knew we didnt need to look any further! His office space downtown is amazing and he truly caters to his clients. He has an online database that allows you to put in all the information for your wedding from how to pronounce people's names who are in the wedding party to choosing your must play songs, "play if you can" songs, don't play songs, etc. The database is extremely helpful and allows you to organize your wedding day. It also allows Duerell to know what genres you want played and dont want played at your wedding. Duerell also knows how to get everyone on the dance floor. He had EVERYONE dancing at our reception. He can cater to any audience and can hype any crowd. He wants to create you dream day and make your vision come to life and he is successful doing it! My husband and I have vowed to use Duerell for all our music needs! We will also be hiring him in 10 years for our vow renewal. He is the best, so there is no need to look further. More...

We wish we could give Duerell 10 million stars. We warned Duerell that our dance floor was going to be a sweaty, amazing, and beautiful disaster because our friends and family are animals and all love to dance. We needed a DJ that could play everything from Motown to EDM to club rap and he CRUSHED it. When he played September with an added backbeat I knew he was perfect. On top of his incredible DJ skills he was one of the most professional and organized vendors we worked with. He exceeded all expectations. Highly highly highly recommend. More...

Duerrel was wonderful from start to finish. He was quick to respond to all of our emails and questions throughout the planning process. He makes everything super easy with an online booking system in order to make payments and sign the contract upon booking.

After that, there is a great online planning tool to use to make the timeline, songs that "must be played", songs for the "do not play list" and all of your entrance and specialty dance songs. He even offers uplighting, specialty moving gobos, a beautiful white facade for the DJ booth, and several other ways to enhance his display.

We had a face to face meeting to go through our musical styles and vision for the night. He took our ideas and ran with them and the night was even better than we imagined.

He is so fun and keeps the dance floor going all night with his high energy! There was never a point in the night where the dance floor was empty. He seamlessly goes from one song to the next without skipping a beat. It seemed that each song was better than the last.

If you have any questions at all, just book with DJ Jones! I promise you won't regret it.

Thank you Duerrel, for literally being the life of the party!

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!

From the beginning Duerell was responsive, professional and down the earth. That never changed throughout our planning process or wedding day. At our first consultation we were WOW'd. Duerell was so down to earth yet very professional and knowledgeable that although it was a consultation we felt as though we were catching up about music with an old friend. Duerell was always there as a resource and helped to guide us when necessary. He delivered exactly what he stated he would but it was with so much ease and finesse you could tell he loves what he does and enjoys working with couples to create the best experience he can offer. The website he provides to add information is so helpful and user friendly there were no stones left un-turned. The package we chose included a gobo, uplights, dinner, etc and it was well worth the price. As he stated in our consultation he isn't a salesperson so he NEVER tried to push additional services on us we actually reached out to him TWICE to add to our package to create the experience we wanted. Duerell was also there for a our wedding rehearsal which was very helpful as he gave suggestions and insight based on his experience. A month or so before our wedding we decided to get a photo booth. THANK GOODNESS WeddingsbyDJones added that service prior to our wedding so Duerell once again provided us all the information we needed to make a decision and once again helped us to deliver a great experience to our guests. Our wedding was beyond what I could have ever envisioned in a fantastic way. Duerell is one of the best DJ's and MC's my husband and I have ever encountered and many of our guests have the same sentiments. Music provides a great soundtrack to life's experiences. Duerell made sure we had a AMAZING soundtrack for our wedding day. He is one of the best to do it and has definitely raised the bar. Thank you Duerell!! More...

The music for our wedding was really important to us. We love to dance and wanted our guests to be out on the dance floor as long as possible! We contacted DJ D. Jones after I'd seen him at a friend's wedding in 2015. I remembered the music being great and when I talked to my friend, she strongly recommended D. Jones and had hired him for a few more events. We were impressed with his professionalism from the start - he was friendly, timely, and thorough in responding and you can tell that he takes his craft seriously. We met with him early on and really liked that his style is more "club" DJ than classic wedding DJ - he really reads the crowd and knows which parts of a song people want to hear. He also did a great job announcing all the speeches and special events throughout the night. His booth is also really cool! In the end, he made our vision come to life since everyone was on the dance floor til the very last song and has since told us how great the music was! He was a pleasure to work with and I'd strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a great wedding DJ. More...
