Jon Roth helped to bring the wedding of my dreams to life! I have a great love for music so it was very important to me to find someone that was on the same page. Jon’s passion for the service he provides was made very clear within the first few minutes of speaking with him. Which by the way, I sent him an email requesting information... and he contacted me an hour later! He gave great professional feedback on all my ideas and also brought a fresh perspective and took my ideas to the next level. From the dressing of the DJ booth, the extensive music library, and high quality equipment he was constantly blowing my expectations out of the park. He gave me space at my event, listened to my guests and provided the greatest experience for me and my husband. His capabilities seemed to be endless! He managed to take my very eclectic taste in music and provide a seamless show. There wasn’t a request he did not meet. My sister’s DJ not only made her cry on her wedding day but, was double the price for a 1/3 of the quality of what Jon Roth of Music Source provides. If you are looking for a DJ & MC that makes your event about you, then look no further!

Jon Roth of Music Source Professional Disc Jockey Service was the DJ/MC at our wedding on August 17, 2013. The three words I would use to describe Jon are professional, reliable and experienced. Jon is very dedicated to his profession and maintains a level of professionalism that highly exceeds other disc jockeys. Jon took all of our ideas and completely personalized the music for our wedding day. He provided music for both the ceremony and reception, which included dinner music. The dinner music was from a preset CD he had put together and contained songs that all ages were able to appreciate. He even suggested using two surround sound speakers to put in the corners of the reception hall to make sure everyone could hear the speeches and to help distribute the music evenly. He has a wide variety of music to choose from and helped customize our day by giving us his professional opinion about certain selections. He even worked with us and downloaded songs we had requested that he did not already have in his song library. Jon is very organized and easy to work with and he is open to any ideas you might have. The DJ/MC is the person who makes the night run smoothly and keeps the party going, and in our case, JR did just that. All of our guests were more than pleased with the music selections. He took requests from the guests and made sure to stick to our play/do not play song list. His timing and music selections kept our guests on the dance floor all night long! We had such an enjoyable experience with JR and we would highly recommend him to DJ your event. Thank you so much JR!! You helped make our night one that we will never forget!
First of all I want to say that Jon absolutely made the night!!! He has been wonderful to work with from the beginning always understanding and to the point. He is extremely organized, which is a quality that everyone should look for in a wonderful DJ & MC, with a four page planner!! He went above and beyond with wireless speakers on the patio for our cocktail hour and one in the grill room along with green up lighting, which matched our wedding colors, behind his set up to accommodate our venue. The night was perfect!! Jon was able to take our unique musical tastes and make the whole night flow smoothly. All of my guests kept commenting on how wonderful he was and how everyone was dancing. Also, it was extremely hard for me to leave the dance floor because I loved everything he played...partially because most of it came off of our planner. The songs were balanced wonderfully between our songs and our guests requests. I would highly recommend Jon to anyone for their wedding!! Actually two of my bridesmaids, whose weddings were earlier in the year, talked about how their DJs played songs they didn't like, used incorrect songs for important moments like the garter toss or was just plain unorganized...I wish they would have met Jon before my wedding because they would of had the most incredible night of their lives.
Jon Roth, owner of Music Source, was the DJ & MC for both my wedding and my sisters. My sister was married a few years before I was, so when it came to picking a DJ/MC, we knew just who to go to. Jon does a fabulous job working with the party planners and other wedding vendors, and caters to whatever is needed. Jon and his assistant also do a great job keeping the party alive and the guests entertained. My husband and I were sending Jon songs that we wanted for our reception all the way up to the day. Even the songs that were required for special dances or planned activities. He is also very thoughtful and helpful when it comes to planning such a complex part of the reception. My husband Dylan and I know what kind of music we like, but when it came to picking all these songs for our wedding reception formalities, we were lost. Jon at the end of our reception that made it even more memorable. We had a great time and I have been recommending Music Source left and right. I was very resourceful and helped us figure out just what we wanted. Jon Roth even threw in a special surprise wouldn't tell anyone to go anywhere else! Thanks for the great time Jon!

Jon Roth of Music Source did a fabulous job at our August 24th, 2013 wedding reception at the Oakley Lindsay Center in Quincy, IL! Jon was great to work with throughout the whole planning process and really paid attention to each little detail, making my job as the bride much easier. Jon met with us several times before the big day to go through the details and made sure everything was just how we wanted it to be. He is very prompt with emails and really all communications, always responding right away. His high level of professionalism and commitment to providing the best DJ service in the area is one of the many reasons we are glad we chose him to be our DJ, and we were so happy that he was willing to travel all the way to Quincy from Springfield. Jon not only acts as a DJ but also as Master of Ceremonies (MC) to ensure everything runs smoothly. The music sounded great especially with the surround sound remote speakers in our very large room, plus we had fabulous looking uplights around the room in our light pink wedding color. Jon made sure to keep everyone having fun all night which included the bubble machine which was a huge hit with the youngsters. For my father/daughter dance Jon spent two hours putting a special six song mix together that had everyone raving about all night. I would highly recommend Music Source Professional Disc Jockey Service!
My husband and I hired J.R. to DJ & MC our wedding reception in September and could not be more impressed. He is an amazing DJ and MC! He kept the events flowing as they should and kept our guests dancing throughout the entire night! His playlist contained every song I wanted and more. He is an expert at his job and I highly recommend him! Thanks again for a great night J.R.!
Jon Roth of Music Source was an excellent DJ & MC at my wedding reception. I was my own wedding planner so he provided excellent advice as to how to lay out and run the reception. Everything ran very smoothly due to Jon, as he was on top of everything all night long. He had such a large variety of music and side services to offer us for our reception. I thought he was very fairly priced for his high level of services that he provides. He also brought an assistant with him for my reception, and Jon had this young man even help me with my plate through the buffet line back to the head table, so I did not get any food on my dress. I highly recommend him!
Where to begin. Planning a wedding away from home is not the easiest, and Jon Michael Roth was an unbelievable help with this. My husband Andy and I got married in October of 2013 and all of our communication with Jon was done over the phone, and it felt like we were sitting in the room with him. He was always so helpful in suggesting how things should be run as well as helping us find other wedding vendors. He always kept a professional manor and once the dancing got started there was not one single song that the dance floor was empty. He was great at keeping us on schedule during such a hectic day and we are forever grateful. If you are looking for a DJ & MC that will keep the fun coming throughout the night we really suggest you talk with Jonathan Michael Roth! HE WAS FANTASTIC AND WE LOVED EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF OUR RECEPTION!!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR HARD WORK AND PROFESSIONALISM!
J.R. was hands down the best DJ/MC we could have had for our wedding back in 2007. We have been to a lot of weddings before and since and he just reigns supreme over every other DJ/MC that we have had to listen to. He was very easy to work with, played what we wanted to dance to with great music flow, and did NOT play the songs that we didn't want to hear. He kept the party going until 1:00 am and our dance floor was never empty. We had the best reception and I still have people tell me what a fabulous time they had, six years later! J.R. is very professional, he truly cares about his clients and makes sure your event is exactly what you want it to be. Some DJ's just flat out suck, and shouldn't be allowed to play music, but you won't find that with Music Source. You will have a DJ/MC who was born to keep the party going, who will make your guests happy, and he will make your reception the EVENT to remember!
Jon provided the DJ, MC & Reception Director services for our wedding reception on July 28th, 2013. He is very professional and takes his business very seriously, yet delivers it in a very fun way too. We were impressed with the extensive four page reception planner he gave us in our first meeting. After it was completed by us we met to go over it in detail a few weeks prior to the wedding day. I was very comfortable in knowing that the music and the hosting was in good hands. We pretty much picked the music and gave Jon a general idea of what our expectations were, and he did a fantastic job of putting it all together. He kept the party going and everyone had a great time. The surround sound remote speakers and uplighting were a definite plus in our venue. From the music to the lighting and the Reception Director services he provided, we were not disappointed. I would and already have recommended Jon to others. Thanks Jon for making it a great memorable night!
I have seen Mr. Roth at many events such as weddings, reunions, anniversaries and corporate events. He always does an outstanding job and has great music selection for ALL occasions, mainly because he takes the time to find out what his clients want, and does a great job of working and reading the guests. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. He also supplies awesome dance floor lighting with his music, plus amazing uplighting which can set any mood from romantic to Party on the Roof! Everybody is always having a great time at these events he works so if you want it done right then Jonathan Roth of Music Source Professional Disc Jockey Service is your man.

Megan & Drew Lashbrook
The BEST DJ service! We couldn't have asked for anything better at our wedding ceremony and reception. They were completely professional and thought of everything. Thank you again for making the best night of our life so easy!
Terri & Scott Ligon
Thank you so much for your services at our reception. You were true to your word and a pleasure to work with. Thank you for helping to create memories of a lifetime! All our best.
Casey & Annie NellJon was the DJ & MC at our wedding and he was absolutely awesome! Picking a DJ & MC for your wedding can be a little bit of a hassle but he takes all of the worry out of it. From whenever we first met with him to the end of the reception he was nothing but professional. Before the day of the wedding he kept in touch with us and made sure that he understood everything we wanted. At the reception he coordinated everything with the photographer and the caterers and we did not have to worry about anything. Overall he was extremely professional and made the night absolutely perfect! A month afterward we are still getting compliments about how much fun it was and it wouldn't have been possible without JR.
Lindsay Musgrave-BeckerFinding the perfect DJ & MC for your wedding can be a challenge. You don't want anyone too cheesy, or someone that hogs the mic. J.R. was just what we needed to get our party started. His organization skills were quite impressive (especially for a man!). He provides a wonderfully put together music planning booklet that leaves nothing out,...so you don't have to wonder if there's something you're missing. His professionalism and attention to detail were much appreciated during such a hectic time in our lives. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to enjoy many of the tunes J.R. dished up that night (due to greeting guests) but I've had so many people tell me what a "rockin" time they had! The dance floor was never empty. We appreciated all of his planning with the hotel wedding planner, as well as the photographer. Thanks J.R. you went above and beyond your duties as wedding D.J.!
Dennis & Leslie ReedLeslie & I had the privilege of having Jon Roth as our wedding DJ & MC. I enjoyed every minute of his time, from the little chats leading up to the wedding reception and including the professionalism during the wedding reception. We received many compliments from our guests on the music selections and the right volume and clarity. When the time comes again we will use Music Source Pro DJ Service again. Thank You Jon! Dennis L. Reed Jr. ~ Owner/KJ/DJ of Hi-Tek Redneck Entertainment
J.R. did an amazing job as the MC & DJ for our first annual Central IL Teen Fashion Show! He was a tremendous help throughout the planning and practice process. He did an amazing job coordinating the music selection with the trends the teens were highlighting. The atmosphere of the evening was totally in his hands and he did a fabulous job with sound, video and lighting! I have also had the pleasure of working with JR at several weddings too where I have seen him interact with the guests, and that is why I asked him to help me with the fashion show, as he always delivers 100%!

David & Allie McDow
Thank you for all of the extra effort you put into making our reception what we wanted it to be. The uplighting really added a nice touch to the room and the spotlight on the cake made it a focal point as people walked in, which was exactly what we wanted. We also appreciate your attention to detail as the wedding party was introduced. It made us feel a lot more comfortable when you came out to line everyone up and double check the pronunciations of the names, prior to the introduction that went off smoothly. Your BIG Sound & Light Show looked and worked great in our venue, and we really liked that you kept the dance floor full. Everyone we have talked to said they had a great time. Thank you for helping to make our special day even more enjoyable!
I have had the pleasure of getting to know J.R. for the last several years. I know J.R. as a professional speaker, organizer, planner, performance evaluator, and fellow DJ & MC through the Downstate Illinois Chapter of the American Disc Jockey Association. Here is what you want to know about Jon: He is well skilled in organization, planning and visualizing. He strikes a well natured balance between being professional, witty, taking prompt client action, and delivering with integrity what he says he will do. It is always enjoyable to work with Jon. Just notice his charming, hard working and fun personality. He loves events that are challenging as he is forever raising the bar in excellence, since that is all he does.
Jordan & Stephanie KleinThanks so much Jon! Your team was great to work with and you kept the party going to the very end. Everything was perfect and the up-lighting was spectacular. It was fun to watch the really bright room darken and the lights take form during the night. Also thanks for posting the video of the introductions. We had not seen what everyone did since we were last to be introduced, so this was a very pleasant surprise.
Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without Jon Roth of Music Source. He is a dedicated professional from the early planning phases to the actual festivities. One thing I liked most was that Jon took care of most of the structure of the evening and Kelly and I were able to enjoy ourselves. Don't get me wrong as he knows music too, but his service is about so much more than just somebody playing music. I hope to not ever have a second wedding, but would definitely use them for other occasions.
Jon Roth the owner, DJ & MC of Music Source went above and beyond to make our wedding memorable not only for my husband and I, but for our guests as well. He answered all my questions very quickly; usually within minutes via email. He is very professional and always anticipated our needs. The music and lights were phenomenal and he ensured the evening flowed smoothly working as our Reception Director. He even bought a CD for an obscure song we requested that he didn't have and was not available for download anywhere. I will recommend Music Source to anyone in need of professional DJ services! Thank you Jon!
Martha & Michael PlogWe want to thank you for helping to make Jim & Elizabeth's reception such a wonderful event. We have received so many compliments about how smoothly everything flowed, but also how much fun everyone had. That is very much to your credit. We will certainly recommend you to those in need of a professional DJ & MC.
Michael ElliottThank you so much for being a very important part to Amanda's and my wedding reception. You know how much I appreciate music and it has been a real pleasure working with you in making it what we wanted. I hope to see you in the future at one of our friends reception, as we certainly will be recommending you.
I have had the pleasure to work with J.R. during numerous weddings receptions and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ / MC. I believe J.R.'s ability to listen and accommodate his clients is by far his best trait. Then add the music selections, personal touch and the equipment he uses, then every event is a true pleasure. I know for a fact that his clients and their guests feel the same way. Danny Flynn ~ Flynn Photography
Tricia & Chase MillerProfessional and organized. You made a wonderful day even better. We would highly recommend Music Source to anyone. The ceremony and reception planners were fantastic and answered questions we didn't even know we had. Plus an awesome music selection that kept people dancing on top of everything. We can't thank you enough!
Rachel & Dustin SchultzThank you so much for being a part of our wedding and helping it be even more special! We loved all the music, the set up and everything turned out great! We got a lot of compliments on your service. Thank you!
Katie & Jack ContriWe were very pleased with the service that Jon Roth provided. He was very professional in all of our interactions and understanding with all of our requests, especially when it came to the dance music for the night. We had the dance floor full all night and the music flow was smooth. We thank him for all of the coordination he had with all of the other vendors. We would certainly recommend him to others.
Angie & Derek Zentgraf
Because of your service, we had the wedding of our dreams. Everything was flawless from the ceremony through the last dance. And the special 10 song ~ 10 couples intro was exactly what we were looking for and you nailed it. Thank you so much for being part of our special day.
Thank you so much! Jonathan Michael Roth of Music Source Professional Disc Jockey Service recently worked my surprise party for my wife's 60th birthday at Panther Creek Country Club in Springfield, IL. I was totally impressed as were all of my 62 guests with the music and light show that Jonathan and his assistant provided. Music Source made the night so much fun by playing nothing but my guests requests, that he had them dancing the entire night. He even made a custom playlist for the cocktail and dinner hour per my wife's and I musical tastes. Everything was so professional from the very first meeting through all the follow ups by Jonathan, which were greatly appreciated as I had never organized an event like this before. The evening could not have been more perfect and my wife was absolutely thrilled.
Daniel EwingI had worked with Jon for several years prior to going off to college, and every event was great. Most recently he DJ'd my wedding reception, and my wife and I couldn't be happier. Everything was just as we talked about and he was never to busy to talk about our wedding or what we wanted. Everything was picture perfect professionalism through the whole night and he played exactly what we wanted with great flow and amazing quality. I have never seen a DJ anywhere that is as good as Jon, the owner DJ/MC of Music Source.
Amy & Mark Winters
Music Source was a great selection for our wedding celebration. We didn't have to do a thing. JR and his assistant were very professional and did an excellent job taking song requests and keeping us on schedule. All of their equipment was top notch as we had an excellent light show with bubbles. They even took care of our slide show. It was a perfect night!
JR made our event so much fun that we had to have him at our next one too! He is very professional and had so much extra to offer other than just music. The party goers had a great time and commented on the parties for weeks afterwards and prior to when they heard he was coming back. He definitely made the parties entertaining! I wouldn't consider using any other DJ for any of my events and will recommend him to all of my friends and associates.
Danielle Lees Lyons
We hired Jon as our DJ & MC for our wedding and not only was he an excellent DJ & MC but we also got so much more. He is an exceptional reception planner and kept the events of the night moving smoothly. I can't even begin to express how helpful this is for a bride and groom. We were able to relax, knowing that everything was taken care of according to schedule. Jon's music choices kept everyone dancing and entertained. Our friends and family had a blast! We couldn't be happier!
Fabulous time at my son and daughter-in-laws wedding reception! It was so wonderful that months later I am still getting positive comments from the guests about how great it was. The light show, the music, the personality - what a great combination!
Shelley & Dennis Doyle
Thank you for making Stephanie and Jacob's wedding reception so special. The high level of communication prior to the day meant that Dennis and I didn't have to worry about anything with you running the show for us at the reception. The music was fantastic and we finally had to tell everyone to go home or I think they would have stayed all night. We have been to many wedding receptions and seen and heard many DJ's/MC's and no one comes close. We will continue to recommend you over and over again.
DJ Jon Roth did an outstanding job at our Color Blaze 5K in Springfield, IL. We appreciate his timely responses to emails and his creative video he put together to promote Color Blaze all over the United States. Jon made the event sound amazing and did a good job getting over 3,000 people dancing and ready for the race. Jon helped with dance contests and other announcement for our Charity Event for the Memorial Burn Center. Thank you DJ Jon for your help in making Color Blaze 5k Springfield, IL a success! Team Color Blaze
J.R. is very personable with the highest degree of integrity. He thoroughly explains what services are available making recommendations based upon your venue and what you want your event to be. He works well with his clients to customize the performance to your desired style. He then carries through with everything in a timely and professional manner.
J.R. made our fashion show come alive! He worked with our announcer on timing and delivery and with our nursing students on timing and walking. He picked the right songs for each of the time periods and then added an awesome light show. It was the highlight of the 125 year celebration thanks to his efforts. He went above and beyond.
