It’s You Night is a company that blends the perfect mix of ridiculously fun party and impeccable elegance.
Editor’s Note: for this Best Wedding DJs in Dallas Spotlight, we had the pleasure of interviewing Jeremiah, from It’s Your Night Entertainment.
Where have you been featured?
As a company, we are frequently featured in The Knot’s Hall of Fame Best of Weddings and Wedding Wire’s Couples Choice awards. We have been nominated for several AACWP Vendi awards as well as been featured in plenty of bridal magazines. Personally, I have been featured in an article with Voyage Dallas Magazine.
Why do couples love working with you?
Well, you can spend 5 minutes with me and tell that I am no introvert. I definitely love being the life of the party! I LOVE TO HAVE FUN! I am also unique because I am a DJ but I am also a Live musician. Most people either go with a band or a DJ and with me, you get the best of both worlds. The one of a kind atmosphere that live music brings for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and even some first dances, then when it comes to dancing you get the lively atmosphere and versatility of a DJ.
What do you love most about being a wedding DJ?
I say this often but I get paid to have a party! Now while you won’t see any of the behind the scenes work and the copious amounts of planning that goes into my job, at the end of the day, I get to dance around and create an unforgettable party. You got to love what you do right?
How did you get started?
My very first wedding as a DJ was my cousin’s wedding when I was 16 (which as a side note, with me being in the Wedding industry now… what was she thinking to let some kid DJ her wedding?!?!). Now to preface this, this gig should’ve been a train wreck, but it was an absolute blast and everything went perfect, even with me DJing off of two laptops and iTunes! I found a new love for DJing, However, I had no idea I could do this on a regular basis, let alone, make it a career. My mom always said, “You should put an ad on Craigslist,” but I couldn’t help but think that was a stupid idea, so I never did it.
A few years later, my now Mother-In-Law introduced me to a high school friend of hers who had a DJ business here in the DFW area. I worked with him and really learned everything I know now about doing an event. After leaving that company a few years after that, I started working with It’s Your Night Entertainment, and have been here ever since!
What 3 words best describe your DJ’ing style?
High-Energy, Engaging, Musical.
What’s your setup like?
I run off of a MacBook Pro into my Denon DJ mixer! My sound equipment is some of the best you can get out there! For my main system, I run a Bose PA system. I also have wireless zone QSC speakers to help spread out the sound throughout the venue. I can even put one outside if I need to!
What budget range do you cater to?
Our packages differ for days and months and ranges from $1800-$2500
What is one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you play it?
So I would normally say something like ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey (because we all know it is a banger!) but that doesn’t really show my style. Honestly one of my favorites is ‘Love on Top’ by Beyonce! It is always a hit for dancing but it REALLY gets me into the music. (Don’t be shocked when you see me in the DJ booth getting down as hard you!)
Hands down the best DJ/MC I have ever seen at a wedding. Jeremiah was very easy to work with, very flexible as well as very personable. Jeremiah can sing, play the guitar as well as play the keyboard very well, his DJing was top notch and he had the dance floor packed from the beginning to the end. Jeremiah hands down made my wedding night 10000 times better. Guests from my wedding keep telling me how great he was and how much of a blast that they had because of him.
I had a wonderful experience working with Its Your Night Entertainment. Jeremiah was our DJ and did a fantastic job reading the crowd and keeping guests on the dance floor when they were supposed to be and playing great background music during the meal. He is also an incredibly talented singer! Its Your Night also handled my ceremony music which was so nice to have all of the music for the entire event under one company. Its Your Night made planning a wedding from out of state extremely easy and stress free. They are professional and fun! I couldn’t be more pleased with the Its Your Night Entertainment Team!
In searching for a DJ, we had very high expectations. We researched several different DJs, and It’s Your Night Entertainment was recommended by our wedding planners, Gold Dust Vintage Girls. We chose Jeremiah to sing acoustic throughout our ceremony, be the DJ as well as help my parents with a photo slideshow for the rehearsal dinner. We also used this company for lighting and the photo booth. All I can say is that they blew everything out of the water. Everything was above and beyond our expectations. From last-minute song requests to on the spot acoustic performances, Jeremiah is unbelievably amazing. I would highly recommend It’s Your Night Entertainment to anyone looking to have a seamless, high-energy evening.
