"Jon was an integral part of our wedding
reception and planning. If receptions had MVP awards for vendors, he would
have won it unanimously! We started working with Jon close to a year before
the big event and right from the start his professionalism and insights
showed through and were a huge help to us. Many of our major decisions
were a direct result of his advice. We live in Oregon and were married
in Carmel, so to have someone like Jon made planning remotely so much
easier. He was highly organized and had checklists and timelines that
helped us plan much more smoothly. Our reception had many customized events
including special cuts of songs, guest speeches, choreographed dances,
multiple rooms, and several activities just to name a few. Jon emceed
each one of those things flawlessly and there was never a question of
timing or location thanks to him. All we had to do was enjoy ourselves
and that we did with ease! We knew the night was going to be great when
our wedding party was introduced for the grand entrances into the reception.
Jon brought us all in red carpet style to wonderful music and perfect
announcing. It made us feel like rock stars! Then, when it was finally
time for everyone to dance, his first song filled the dance floor. To
this day, many of our guests are still talking about how they never saw
a dance floor fill so quickly! And it never stopped. He was great at mashing
songs and kept it going to the very end. One of my favorite parts of the
evening was when I looked over to the DJ booth and saw Jon with his ear
cocked to a set of headphones, both hands on his mixing table, a grin
from ear to ear, and dancing to the groove like all of us. It is a vivid
memory I will enjoy forever. If the DJ is having that much fun, then you
better expect we are all having that much fun too. We loved every moment
of working with Jon. We'll have to come up with an excuse to throw another
party just so we can have Jon emcee and DJ it! Thank you ever so much,
Jon. You made our special memories golden memories!"

"Jon is such a professional and thoughtful
D.J., you will not be disappointed with his services."
"Jon Belmont did a fantastic job as the
DJ at a friend's wedding. He had the right balance of moving the reception
along but wasn't intrusive. Everyone had a blast and he picked the right
music to keep everyone dancing the entire night. I would definitely hire
Jon for an upcoming event."
"Simply put, if you hire anyone else
you're basically telling yourself that you do not deserve the best. Jon
crushed it and made our evening incredibly special. Of the many things
our guests continually rave about our wedding: the music and DJ are in
the top 3. Jon worked with us to eliminate some formulaic pieces that
we didn't want in our wedding and emphasized the things that we really
wanted. Mainly heavy dancing, and since we catered to the people who will
spend 3+ hours on the dance floor our party was insanely good. We had
people messaging us all weekend telling us they were still sore from the
fun. Awesome. Go Jon!"
