Burton Entertainment offers professional DJs for your wedding or private party needs. Our DJs ensure that your party is moving and that your guests are always having a great time. We are available for weddings, corporate events, bar/bat mitzvahs, military balls, holiday parties, and any other type of special event.
Many DJs are often inflexible and do not give you exactly what you want. Burton Entertainment lets their clients be a part of the planning process down to the very last detail. Burton Entertainment provides an atmosphere that is right for YOU and works one on one, with the client, to ensure that everyone is 100% satisfied. It is left up to the discretion of the client to determine whether or not they want the DJ to pick the music, or if they would prefer to have a mix of music of their own choosing. We use state of the art, computer-based equipment and top of the line sound reinforcement to ensure the finest audio fidelity possible. Please call or send an email so that we can send you one of our promo packages today.
The wedding promo package contains an entertainment agreement, a wedding reception questionnaire, a wedding party introduction sheet, and a song selection form to help you plan your wedding ceremony and/or reception. Our attention to detail makes sure that every possible angle is covered, every question is answered, and that we will provide an atmosphere and experience which will ensure a lifetime of great memories!

Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to do to secure my event date?
A deposit listed in the paperwork is required to secure your event. Deposits are taken on a first come-first serve basis. Checks, cash, Venmo, Cash App, and credit cards are accepted.
Can you tell me about optional lighting effects?
UPLIGHTING: We offer uplighting for $20 per light (up to 20 lights). The cans are LED which means that they do not draw a lot of power and they operate at a low temperature so that they will not burn curtains or children's hands. Many color options are available. Here are some examples of what uplighting can do to a room.
What is included in the dance floor lighting?
The dance floor lighting effects package includes 2 large tripod lighting stands with 8 LED lights and a DMX controller. The lighting control unit allows the lights to flash in time with your selected music and creates a wonderful dance floor atmosphere. Lighting is offered as an option for those who are having their event during the day. Dance floor lighting is highly recommended for events being held at night. Please view the video below for examples of dance floor lighting effects.
Can you tell me more about the custom monogram?
You can have a custom monogram designed to enhance the esthetics of your event. The monogram can be projected onto the floor or onto the wall. Click the monogram image below to choose a design and see more examples.
Our wedding is outdoors. Can you mic the actual ceremony so our guests can hear it?
Yes. We can use wireless microphones at the alter so everyone can hear your vows. Burton Entertainment can also play your selected music as you walk down the isle, be it "Here Comes the Bride" or any other selection which you choose.
Can you avoid playing profane and vulgar music?
Yes. Unless otherwise directed, all of our music selections are "radio-friendly" versions and do not contain profanities.
Can we choose our own music?
Yes. The DJ promo package contains a form where you can write down specific songs that you would like played at your event. There is a "Must Play" section as well as a "Do Not Play" section. If you choose a song that is not already in our 17,000+ song catalog, we will pay to download it (legally) through an online music provider.
Can you tell me more about the projector / slide show options?
We offer a 3600 lumen Epson projector and an 80 inch screen for slide shows or presentations. These have become very popular in recent years. For slide shows, please export your slide show as a movie (.mov .wmv .mp4 etc.).

We wanted to thank you for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding reception. We greatly appreciated the amount of professionalism you have; taking the time to call in advance to make sure you had the correct pronunciations for names, clarification of timing of events and song selections. We had multiple comments about how well you did announcing the different events and most importantly playing good music that kept everyone dancing for hours. We had a wonderful time and your services definitely contributed the festive atmosphere. It was great seeing all age groups and both families dancing together.

Hi Jake -
Let me just say that every single person in attendance, myself included, thought Russell was absolutely phenomenal. I'm not sure I've ever experienced such an enjoyable DJ. If ya'll ever need a recommendation from a prior skeptic of pretty much everything, let me be the first to assure people that you guys are first class!
Thanks for all youre help,
Hi Jake. Thanks for everything; everybody had a blast and enjoyed the music particularly the latin/american mix. Your service was magnificent and we enjoyed it as much as everybody else. We would definitely recommend you if anyone asks for a DJ! Ours was the first wedding reception hosted by Marche and the manager told us she now has added you to her contacts in which she would recommend.

We had an AMAZING time at our wedding. Russell did an absolutely WONDERFUL job. Everyone had so much fun that we didn't want to leave. Thank you to you and Russell for all your help. He definitely made our reception a party to remember.
Michelle Hollingsworth :)
Everything was so great! We had such an amazing time. We were both so nervous but we ended up having this fantastic night. You were great! It seemed like there was always someone out on the dance floor shaking it! That's all we really wanted! I can't remember being at a wedding where it seemed like everyone had a good time, but I might be prejudice :). I know that the music and whole pace of the party really had everything to do with it. I really appreciate your help there, because I seriously had no idea how go about herding people and timelines, etc. My sincere gratitude for all your help and professionalism on our wedding night.
Thank you so much for your wonderful service at our wedding! You are awesome! You made our reception the best ever! Thank you so much for taking the time and consideration to ask us about things during the reception and going with the flow of all the changes at the last minute. I know it was tough for you to get there because of all the flooding around Nashville and we really appreciated your dedication in getting there so we would have a wonderful night! I know you had to go through a lot to get to us and to get home and don't think it went without notice! We loved your enthusiasm and your patience with us and our little diva daughter lol! You are truly wonderful at what you do and we will definitely chose you again for future parties as well as refer you to everyone we know! Can't wait til next time!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Matt and Beth Ward
Jake performed brilliantly during our wedding on May 10th 2009. His vast variety of music was incredible and he made certain everyone was dancing and enjoying themselves. Everyone had a fantastic time and commented on how many people actually got up to dance. We attribute that to both the music and the outgoing/carefree family members! It was a great and fulfilling time in our lives to see all of our friends and family on the dance floor at the same time. Thanks again for all of the work you put into the planning….it was fantastic!
Todd & Marilyn Barrera
I just wanted to email you to let you know that you did an AWESOME job at our wedding!! I was going to leave a testimonial on your website, but I couldn't figure out how to. Please feel free to copy and paste any of this email onto your website because I have been to so many weddings that were BORING due in part to a bad DJ; however, you were fantastic! It was wonderful how well you were able to alter your schedule and songs to fit the atmosphere of our reception!! I have never seen some people in my family dance before, and I owe a large part of that to you! Everyone we have talked to said it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and I believe them 100% because the music was absolutely perfect! You knew exactly what to play at exactly the right time to get everyone on their feet! Thank you so much for making our wedding reception so wonderful and unforgettable! I will never forget it!!
Celina and Grant B.
Thank you so much for doing the music for our wedding. It was wonderful. All of our guests had a great time. Thank you for making this part of the wedding so easy and enjoyable!
Kali and Mark Worley
Thank you so much for being the DJ at our wedding on the 11th. You did a wonderful job. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the music a lot! We highly recommend you and appreciate your work! We hope you are enjoying Tennessee. Cold and wet up here in Washington!
Thanks again and Best Wishes Always,
Ashley & Christopher
I've been meaning to write to thank you so much for being at our Reception. You did a great job keeping things moving and we loved the music!! I guess you could tell that everyone else did as well because you couldn't keep our friends off the dance floor :) Even when the last song was announced-- that was so much fun and it really wouldn't have been the same without you :) We had a blast!! We will definitely recommend you to our friends getting married!!
Thank you again! -Jill T.
We had the best night of our lives! Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job! You played everything we wanted, and nothing we didn't. It was exactly what we were hoping for! We will definitely recommend you to friends :) Thank you so so so much!!
Diane & Bobby
Thank you so much for being our DJ at our May 17 wedding. You did such an awesome job! Everyone had so much fun at the reception, in large part due to you. Thank you for really listening to us and paying attention to our wishes and preferences. You are a fantastic DJ, and I will gladly recommend you in the future! - Missy W.
Jen and I were very pleased. We talked before the wedding about having a "low-key" DJ and you did a perfect job. The guests and kids were all happy with your work. We will be happy to refer you to others in the future & keep you in mind for any of our personal events. Thanks - Bill & Jen
Jake, Thank you for doing such a great job at our wedding. Everything was perfect and a lot of our guests commented on how well you were doing. Thanks for being part of our day, for your flexibility, and for knowing when to turn down the music at our slightly unorganized ceremony. I would definitely recommend you, so if you ever need me to put out a good word, let me know. Thanks again.-Veronica
Thanks for the e-mail. We were vacationing at the lake, so it's taken us a little while to get back with you. I'm glad you had a good time at the wedding. We had an absolute blast, and so did our guests. You did a wonderful job keeping everyone out on the dance floor. I don't think I would have changed anything you did. Thanks so much for everything. If you ever need a reference, we will be happy to give you one.
Sara and David
It was Awesome! You did a great job, thank you. We will be hitting you up again for future events.
Hi Jake...sorry it has taken so long for me to get back to you. This
is my work e-mail and I just started back! Anyway, I thought you were very flexible and
easy to work with. You seemed to feel the crowd and played music that
got people dancing. You kept things moving along but I didn't feel
rushed either. I would honestly recommend you to anyone. Thanks again
for doing such a great job...since you were so easy to work with, I was
able to concentrate on other areas!
Hope you are doing well!
Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did! I had a super time at the reception....unfortunately the hot weather kept everyone from hanging around very long! Oh well, my girls and i had a great time! You did a great job as well, thanks for the additional work of setting up twice, it was wonderful to have the wedding so that people could hear! Thanks again, and I will recommend you highly!
Hi Jake! We all had a fantastic time. Thank you so much for everything like the sequence of events and guiding us through everything. The music and vibe was awesome. Everyone was complimenting you from my Grandma to our friends. I really appreciate you driving here from WA to help make our reception key! Thank you so much!
Tiffany and Mark
We really enjoyed having you there. We REALLY liked the garter
placement! That was really fun. And thanks for playing so many of the songs we
suggested. I had several people tell me how nice you were and were
wondering where we found you, etc. :) So thanks for being such a great
part of our night! Thank you so much for everything you did-it really added to our
beautiful reception! Best of luck to you in your new journeys!!
Thanks again a million!
Rachel and Ben
Thanks so much for doing our wedding. I had a great time and I heard so many people say it was the best wedding ever. I liked everything you played. I thought you were fun and had great idea's. Overall I thought you did a great job!
We both agreed, you did a great job and loved the way you handled everything....
Keep up the good work,
Jake - You did an awesome job last night and we really appreciate you tending to things we weren’t sure about. Everything flowed really well and everyone had a GREAT TIME! We had a blending of Catholic and Mormon families which made me a little nervous but it was so much fun. Thank you and you can be sure I will recommend you to anyone needing a DJ!
I thought it was great. Everyone had a wonderful time. I appreciated your easy going personality…because I just didn’t know, with such a mixed crowd. But you did great and I just appreciated you be open minded. You could most certainly use me as a future reference, you were wonderful.
