DJ 

- SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE -

Jake was easy to work with before and on the day of our wedding. He supplied the sound for our ceremony and reception, and played our requested list of songs :) would absolutely recommend!
---- Jennifer J. (Brea, California)

Steady Jake was as punctual, professional and fun as you could ask for. He aided in smooth transitions and threw in some humor to boot. Definitely recommend him!
---- Jacqueline R. (Rochester, Michigan)

Choosing vendors for a destination wedding can be a daunting task, but Jake was great! He was easy to work with the entire process and very responsive. He kept our guests dancing all night long and helped make our night one to rememeber!! Thank you Jake!
---- Averie S. (Florham Park, New Jersey)

Just WOW! DJ SteadyJake was the best DJ for our wedding. He was the most professional and easy to work with of all my event vendors. All my guests commented on how great the music was at our wedding. The dance floor was never empty. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND him for your next event.
---- Sue R. (Simsbury Connecticut)

We got married in a torrential downpour, outside unfortunately. Jake was beyond professional. He still set up,,still played until our agreed-upon contracted time even though half our party left well before the end of the party because of the weather. He was honest about what he needed, called me the day before to discuss anything that may be an issue and or what he could do to help make it breezier for us and was super supportive the entire time. I’ve had DJs for other events and he is definitely the best DJ I’ve ever hired and we will absolutely use him again!!!
---- Theia K. (Alpine, Wyoming)

Steady Jake was a pleasure to have as DJ at our wedding, he was professional, got my guests dancing, and planned ahead for the most part with me to make sure things ran smoothly for the ceremony, reception, etc. He’s very personable and easy to coordinate with. I recommend him highly to anyone. All of the special dance songs were right, the recessional, the introduction to the reception. The mics worked great for our officiant and for us with no awkward loud feedback. Jake was kind and respectful to provide a Veteran’s discount to us for my husband who is a Marine Vet. I’m very thankful to Jake for his services and I wish all the best to him and his future clients!
---- Shauna V. (Lander, Wyoming)

Jake was spectacular! He was so helpful and responsive leading up to the wedding and then couldn't have been more fun the night of the reception. Our guests loved Jake's music during the cocktail hour and on the dance floor. Thanks for making our wedding night so special, Jake!
---- Robert F. (Bothell, Washington)

Jake is a great DJ and very easy to work with! Awesome guy!
---- Tom M. (Warminster, Pennsylvania)

Jake is AMAZING! Couldn't have asked for more, he made the day stress free and seamless, he worked incredibly well with our wedding planner to ensure the night flowed perfectly!! Highly Recommend!
---- Erica S. (Phoenix, Arizona)

Jake was super responsive and awesome to work with. He provided a worksheet ahead of time allowing us to request specific genres and songs. Even with a smaller wedding he was able to get the party going! I absolutely recommend him.
---- Kaitlin A. (Colorado Springs, Colorado)

Jake is AWESOME! I can't say enough great things about him! He listened to ALL my crazy ideas and made them happen. He kept people on the dance floor all night.
---- Christina D. (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)

We absolutely loved having Jake DJ our wedding! He really made it feel like our day was 100% tailored to us and really helped in making sure the day went off without a hitch. He's a ton of fun, and did an amazing job at keeping the party going. We would absolutely recommend Jake to anyone considering hosting a wedding/event in Jackson! He really was the icing on the cake!
---- Emilie C. (Phoenix, Arizona)

Jake was the DJ for our wedding ceremony and reception, and we couldn’t have been happier. He helped us select the music and gave us a checklist so we could note genres we like, must-play songs, and don’t-play songs. Jake always responded promptly and checked in periodically. We knew the entertainment was safe with him, and all of our other vendors highly recommended him as well. He did an amazing job the day of the wedding. The music was a perfect blend of our music taste and had the guests on the dance floor. It was the perfect play list and really made the night a hit. Thank you Jake!
---- Caitlin H. (Atlanta, Georgia)

Steady Jake did a phenomenal job at my wedding last month! He picked the best music, was clear and easy to understand, and kept the crowd engaged and on the dance floor. Overall very pleased!!
---- Ivy W. (Carriere, Mississippi)

Jake was an amazing Dj!! We planned a destination wedding in Jackson, so selecting vendors required a ton of research, but with Jake we felt comfortable right after initially speaking with him. He was super laid back and accommodating. He has done a ton of weddings. especially at our venue so knew the lay of the land. He had great opinions and suggestions when we asked. We provided a list of songs and genres and Jake caught right onto the vibes we wanted for cocktail and reception. Can’t speak highly enough, would definitely recommend to future brides!
---- Shannon K. (Danvers, Massachusetts)

Jake was so awesome on our big day. So glad we decided to go with him as our DJ, very professional, didn’t have to worry about a thing from set up, to the songs he played, and then take down. It was all very stress free for us, and he definitely got the people dancing. Thanks Jake! Mac and Keara
---- Keara C. (Calgary, Alberta, Canada)

Steady Jake was a dream to work with - from start to finish! We reached out to Steady Jake as soon as we had a date since he came recommended from friends as well as our wedding planner. He was laid-back, accommodating, and knowledgeable and we booked him right away. Throughout the planning process, he was prompt, helpful, and understood what we were looking for. The actual wedding was perfect - he was professional, super fun, and knew how to read the crowd. All of our guests were so complimentary of Steady Jake and we would recommend him a hundred times over. Thank you for making our wedding absolutely perfect, Jake!
---- Julia W. (Saratoga, New York)

100000% recommend Jake! As soon as we picked our date and location, we KNEW we wanted DJ Steady Jake! He came highly recommended and had great reviews online. He’s very experienced and takes the role seriously, wanting to make your big day/night perfect and stress free. I appreciated Jake’s perfect balance of professionalism, fun and ability to read a crowd and know the perfect music for the moment. Would highly recommend booking him for your wedding or event. Great guy and just all around class act!
---- Carley C. (Carrollton, Texas)

Jake was absolutely incredible for our wedding at the Grand Targhee Resort. He was very responsive and flexible with all the curveballs that were thrown our way. Our wedding was first rescheduled from 2020 to 2021 due to COVID restrictions. He was able to switch dates with no issues. We had a live performer for the first dance and he was accommodating with set up to his sound system and making our first dance sound incredible and then being able to jump right into the father-daughter and mother-son dance with his system. We also had a hiccup with our photograph time due to weather and had to sneak away during the reception to finish this. He was able to keep guests entertained during this time and able to pick up our scheduled timeline as soon as we were done. He was able to read the room and play music that kept people on the dance floor. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the Teton and surrounding areas.
---- Haley A. (Escanaba, Michigan)

Steady Jake was fantastic! From the first day we met him to the wedding, he was wonderful to work with. His calm demeanor helped call my nerves. His performance throughout the whole ceremony and reception was seamless, and everyone had the best of time. It was great to be able to share playlists with him, and he just used his experiences to make all of the music perfect. Sound was wonderful too- that is one thing you see go wrong with DJs.. is the feedback, reverberation or just off-tune music. You won’t get any of that with Jake! If I were to do the wedding all over again I would hire him! Here’s to maybe a 10 year renewal!!
---- Jen B. (Texas)

Our guests loved his song selection and we as a couple couldn’t have asked for a better DJ for our special day. So fun and easy to work with!
---- Alicia T. (Grayslake, Illinois)

I had the pleasure of working a wedding with Jake and Blake in Wilson Wyoming 4th of July weekend. They were both amazing to work with. Very professional, paid attention to the details and kept everyone happy and on the dance floor. I would recommend them for weddings or other events. A great bunch of guys to work with. It was one to remember that is for sure.
---- Tracy H. (Rock Springs, Wyoming)

Jake was incredible. Even though he had a TON of weddings he was very responsive and made sure I felt like our wedding was a top priority. After a handful of emails and one phone conversation, he made sure everything went off without any issues- he really does know what he is doing. We cannot thank him enough for everything he did at our wedding. He made our evening perfect. From keeping things moving along to playing exactly what we wanted, I cannot reccomend him more.
---- Madison L. (Golden, Colorado)

Jake is a great DJ! He is very personable and knows that his job is a key component of your biggest day. You will not be disappointed. Jake also provided us multiple and extensive updates regarding local covid restrictions, etc in the months/ weeks ahead of our big day. We were coming from Another state, so it was so comforting to have somebody giving you the most accurate information.
---- Claire S. (Brownwood, Texas)

Jake did an incredible job at our wedding this past February! From the moment we met with him, he knew exactly where to go, what he needed and what info he needed from us. He was very responsive with any questions we had in the planning process and provided all the equipment needed. We enjoyed his humor as he led the wedding on through. As a family friend well known by many in our town, we would highly recommend Jake to anyone looking to a professional DJ for their wedding or event!
---- Alison W. (Jackson, Wyoming)

From beginning to end, planning to execution, Jake was on it! His guidance was invaluable throughout the process. Easy to work with. His music selections were just what we wanted and more. The dance party was lit! Period! Highly recommended.
---- Melissa P. (Brooklyn, New York)

I was a guest at a destination wedding in the Jackson Hole area last weekend and Jake crushed it, he got there early and listened to the bride and groom's hand written vows and was able to incorporate some of what they mentioned into his acting as master of ceremonies. He played a cocktail hour, dinner and dancing and played the perfect songs for each. He announced toasts as well as the father-daughter dance and the mother-son dance. Immediately after the mother-son dance he invited everyone out on to the dance floor to start dancing and EVERYBODY in the whole place got up to dance. It was incredible! The transitions between songs were smooth and he played a great mix of 40's/50's for the parents, songs from when the bride and groom were in high school/college and modern (Lizzo). I also appreciated that he only played one Bruno Mars song.
---- Olympia S. (Redondo Beach, California)

Where to start is really the question about how amazing Jake was as our DJ, 5 star and here is why. First off I had a wedding 100% planned before covid and still made our original wedding date happen which was 8/8/2020.
First off communication and flexibility was the first strong point. Jake was open and will go DJ a socially distanced wedding and was flexible with moving the dates and refunding if needed. Next, HE MIX US A SONG for the father daughter dance. He took 10 seconds of 10 songs in order for us to complete a choreographed dance and had quick return.
Our wedding was at Grand Targhee Resort and he was willing to travel. He coordinated with the wedding planner and set up was smooth. He was flexible for a last minute song idea during the ceremony. He has enough equipment for a ceremony and reception in two different areas. He was nice, fun, and friendly. He read off the vibe of our guests and asked if he could skip the slower songs on our must play list because we had a lively crew. All microphones were great and everyone could hear all of it (ceremony & speeches). He played all the must play songs we listed. It was simply perfect, he recovered us perfect for things I forgot to do such as give him a list of brides and groom to walk in for the reception. He was out of our way during set up and tear down. He knows how to set speakers up for the ceremony to make sure sound quality is great. Long story short for a DJ in teton county he was a wonderful deal (budget wise). So, if you’re not sold now then you didn’t read all of this. For me a good DJ was #1 most important and we hit a home run by having Jake. It’s hard to trust a stranger in this way so I hope this review helps.
---- Ariel C. (Linden, Michigan)

We absolutely loved Jake as our DJ for our wedding at Lost Creek Ranch. He was perfect - great personality, on time, flexible, went above and beyond to make our night go flawlessly. Handled a difficult setup arrangement with grace and ease! He is an experienced professional who gave us great tips and suggestions. We were happy we followed his suggestions - they worked out great! We give him 5 stars, would give him more if we could but really really couldn’t have been happier having him DJ our wedding! Hire him before he gets snatched up!
---- Liz K. (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

Jake thank you so much for everything! We didn’t have a huge crowd but you sure did get everyone having a good time! You’re awesome!
---- Charlotte T. (Wilmington, North Carolina)

DJ SteadyJake was the best! We hired him for our wedding after a recommendation from a friend. He did the music and audio for our outdoor ceremony and was great with coordinating audio with our videographer. He was on time and thought of everything, so there were no issues with set-up. For the reception, he let me use some market-lights of his, very generous! Jake was a great help in moving the night along according to plan, announcing toasts and dances. He played the perfect variety of music, getting all ages on the dance floor for several hours! What a great night!!! Thank you Jake!
---- Carolyn W. (Cincinnati, Ohio)

We hired SteadyJake DJ for our renewal of vows wedding ceremony and reception. Our Family and Friends loved him, so professional and the music variety was a hit!
---- Rebecca B. (Hoboken, New Jersey)

My husband and I got married at Jackson Lake Lodge and Jake just crushed it for the music selection. He played everything we wanted to hear and more! Definitely had everyone dancing the whole night! I highly recommend him he was great!
---- Emily D. (Springfield, South Dakota)

Jake played exactly what we wanted to hear! He did an excellent job and made everything at our wedding flow wonderfully! Highly recommend him!
---- Emily R. (Portland, Oregon)

Jake was awesome. Music selection and command of production makes all the difference at a wedding. Jake played all of our obscure and personally selected music effortlessly while managing a seamless production with the mic and transitions between toast. There is a reason we have five senses. Don't underestimate the power of having the right DJ at your wedding to handle both ceremony and reception and how hearing impacts the experience. Music moves the heart and mind and helps guests powerfully connect to you and your big day at the wedding. Steady Jake will get it done right with ease. So grateful our venue recommended him!
---- Jessica H. (Birmingham, Alabama)

Jake was awesome! Very easy to work with and knows what’s he’s doing. He played every song I wanted to hear and then some. He kept all our peeps dancing and we had the best night. Highly recommend!
---- Brittany M. (Boston, Massachusetts)

Jake was amazing! I had hired him after reading reviews and talking to previous brides who had used him for their Jackson Hole weddings. They had nothing but great things to say of him and I couldn’t agree more! He listened to our suggestions and made songs shorter and read the room to make sure there was never a lull on the dance floor. Every one of my guests were very pleased with him! Even though my wedding was very small, he made sure to keep the party going. Definitely recommend Jake! Very easy to work with and very responsive throughout the planning process.
---- Kendall C. (Minneapolis, Minnesota)

Thank you so much Jake! We really appreciate all you did to make the day great! You did a great job making sure everything was set up and worked for the ceremony and you killed it at the reception, your music choices were spot on and kept everyone dancing all night long.
---- Sam and Alexandra G. (Witchita, Kansas)

Thank you so much for offering your amazing DJ skills and sound expertise for our wedding! Your flexibility and awesome oersonality made our big day a breeze! So appreciate your willingness to have our friends play for our first dance. Music and MC abnilities are so crucial for an event like this and I am so thrilled we chose you for ours! Thank yu again for making our wedding a day we'll never forget.
---- Erin and Cass B. (Idaho Falls, Idaho)

DJ SteadyJake held it down as our wedding DJ. We got married at the end of June, and SteadyJake was our guy for both the ceremony and reception. We had a unique venue, that required looping of tracks during the ceremony, which he was able to mix together seamlessly. We had sent him a general song list of our preferences, and wanted him to make his own additions as he saw fit, which worked perfectly. We definitely would recommend DJ SteadyJake as an extremely fun, competent, and engaging wedding DJ without breaking the bank, which is so important when wedding expenses add up in preparation for the big day.
---- Spencer H. (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina)

My wife and I got married at Diamond Cross Ranch in July, and we were so happy to have Jake DJ our wedding. Unlike some of the other DJ's we considered, SteadyJake seems to genuinely enjoy playing weddings and wanted to make ours' perfect. We checked reviews/references, and people loved him, and we were very glad we did. He was a true professional from beginning to end. I thought since our friends love the outdoors and it would be light out until 9pm that no one would dance, but he had tons of guests dancing all night long, and was able to merge the music we wanted with guest requests seamlessly. When planning, he was very easy to work with, understood our music tastes right away, made great suggestions and was just a very nice person. He had a great working relationship with the venue owners. He arrived to set up at 10 am for a 4 pm ceremony, and provided all of his own equipment. He made sure our officiant and ceremony musicians (a harp and saxophone duet) had everything they needed and sounded amazing. Would highly recommend!!
---- Robert S. (Cambridge, Massachusetts)

I had a destination wedding, and was so grateful to Jake Nichols with SteadyJake DJ for making it all so easy planning from afar! Jake was awesome to work with, and able to communicate via email to accommodate our time zone difference and my busy work schedule. About a week before the wedding we worked out my 'must have' songs, and also my 'don't play these' songs. The day of, he brought all the sound and lighting equipment appropriate for my outdoor ceremony and white tent reception. It went FLAWLESSLY! I wanted really upbeat music to keep the party going, and he definitely kept the dance floor crowded! Plus he was affordable and helped me stay on budget. I would highly recommend him to anyone getting married in the Jackson, WY area!
---- Caitlin T. (Azle, Texas)

Outstanding! Jake made our event something special. Guests were talking about him weeks after asking how we found him. Amazingly talented, easy to work with, fun upbeat party!
---- Melissa G. (New York, New York)

Jake is the man! Really brought the party to our small wedding and made it feel like a professional event! He is more than kind and put in the extra work to make sure that we would have good music whether we were outside or forced inside due to weather. He is top notch and dresses the same!
---- Parker S. (Denver, Colorado)

Steady Jake is an incredibly kind and fun DJ. He knows a large range of music and really fits the playlist to the vibe of the party as it happens. Jake gave us a good questionnaire before our wedding so that we could be sure to have certain songs played, especially during the first dance, etc. He was a big part of everyone having an awesome time at our wedding reception!
---- Ben W. (Jackson, Wyoming)

Jake was a pleasure to work with! We planned our destination wedding from a couple of states away and he was always prompt and helpful when it came to emails and any questions we had. Jake arrived early to make sure there were no issues with the electrical in the tent where the reception was going to be held. He was receptive to requests and played really FUN music all evening! I appreciated that he worked with us on our budget and got us to where we both wanted to be. Jake read the crowd and did an awesome job, highly recommend!
---- Charli V. (Hoven, South Dakota)

Jake did an awesome job at our wedding a couple weeks ago! We were nervous to use local vendors since we did a destination wedding at Jackson Lake Lodge, but he was great a communicating with us the whole way. He helped set up audio for the ceremony as well and knows how to keep the party going for the reception. Very great to work with!
---- Melissa L. (The Woodlands, Texas)

Jake was very responsive via email in the planning stages. His rates are reasonable and fair. He was a lot of fun on our wedding day, helping us navigate crazy weather conditions and a few last minute changes. He was very professional and read the crowd well. Cannot recommend enough!
---- Jill C. (Boston, Massachusetts)

SteadyJake was a DJ for our daughter's wedding at White Pine Resort in Pinedale on May 18, 2019. He worked with my daughter for her price range, played special songs for father of the bride. Played songs for all age groups to dance to, and even played a wedding song with our Texas town in the name. My son in law found the song. Thank you! He looked like he was having fun too!!
---- Sylvia J. (Seguin, Texas)

SteadyJake did a fantastic job as DJ for our wedding. He was prompt and required very little direction, it's obvious he's very experienced. There were several technical difficulties throughout the reception (due to issues with the venue and NOT Jake) and he remained his composure throughout. Jake's song choices were spot on and kept people out on the dance floor until the end. We highly recommend his services!
---- James S. (Rose Lake, Idaho)

Jake was great!!! He made it super easy for us to choose our songs and did a great job with keeping everyone dancing!! We even had some power issues at our venue and he handled them like a true professional. We are so glad we had him as our dj on our special day!!! Thank you Jake!!
---- Allyssa S. (Eagle Point, Oregon)

Steady Jake did an amazing job with our wedding! To begin, Jake was prompt in responding to emails and calls and even took the time to meet with us several weeks prior to our event to discuss particulars. Despite our wedding being held well outside of town down a ROUGH dirt road Jake got all of his excellent sound equipment hauled in and set up well in advance of our reception. Jake made the reception liveley and fun, keeping the crowd dancing and engaged with his good mix of music and spontaneous humor! We would highly recommend Jake for any special event!!!
---- Emily C. (Edinboro, Pennsylvania)

Jake did an excellent job with our wedding, and I would highly recommend him as a DJ. He was passionate about getting people on the dance floor and had it packed all night. He also let us use his audio equipment to record the ceremony. Steady Jake and was happy to go above and beyond just pressing 'play' on iTunes, and was very professional to work with.
---- Mike W. (Salt Lake City, Utah)

Jake was a rockstar at our wedding! He was responsive, kind, and fun. He was flexible and helped navigate crazy weather like a champ. He read the crowd very well. Highly recommend for your big day!
---- Jill C. (Jackson, Wyoming)

SteadyJake ignited the atmosphere at last Saturday’s event. He arrived early, was professional, organized, didn’t take up a lot of room, was accommodating, well attired and a fun guy to have around.
He will always receive a warm welcome back at White Pine Resort in Pinedale WY!
---- Robyn B. resort owner (Pinedale, Wyo)

SteadyJake DJ ROCKED our Daddy-Daughter Dance! Across the many generations represented, his music selections kept everyone happy and dancing the whole night. Like, save, remember this guy for your next party!
---- Julie M. (Jackson, Wyoming)

We highly recommend steady jake. He was great. We were happy we went with him.
Our wedding was at Jackson Lake Lodge. We had about 150 guests. Jake brought his own set up of lights, speakers, mics, and mixing equipment. He was fun and accommodative of our music asks. He had good energy.
He encourages couples to complete a template that he provides ... music tastes, wedding party names, and other info. We gave him a list of artists we liked ... some really deep cuts. He made sure they were played during cocktail hour and dancing but also made sure there were songs everybody liked.
He was easy to arrange a contract with and accepted payment via paypal. His fees were reasonable (for our budget). He had a prep call with us the week before to review names (for intros), music, and schedule. He was easy to work with and helpful.
---- Adam and Jen G. (Columbus, Ohio)

Just a quick note to tell you how much we ALL appreciated your music at our Barn Party! We could not have been happier! Plus, I don’t think we will ever have another party without ...YOU!
---- Kay M. (Tetonia, Idaho)

Jake was professional, on time, fun, and highly recommended. I had multiple guests comment on how great of a DJ he was.
---- Nate & LJ P. (Hastings, Minnesota)

I wanted to again thank you for doing such an amazing job at our wedding! We had such an amazing day!
---- Jane B. (Elmira, New York)

I had a destination wedding and was so grateful to Jake Nichols with SteadyJake DJ for making it all so easy planning from afar!

I would highly recommend him to anyone getting married in the Jackson, WY area!
---- Caitlin J. (Fort Worth, Texas)

You were absolutely AMAZING, and we all had a blast at our wedding. Jake did an absolutely spectacular job as our DJ for our wedding. He got the "feel" of our group and the appropriate music very quickly, and absolutely nailed it song after song all night long. I couldn't have asked for a better night. We were so happy to have you at our wedding, and if we ever need another DJ, we're calling you!
---- Melanie Y. (Atlanta, Georgia)

From the very initial conversations we had via email and on the phone I knew you were the right fit and could get our vibe. The extensive experience, and some of that experience being in the highly-critical NYC, also sealed the deal for us - you knew what you were doing and were doing it successfully. You totally got our vibe down - playing a great mix of Motown and soul while guests mingled and enjoyed cocktail hour, followed by having our very specific wedding party entrance song cued up, and the songs to dance to were exactly what we wanted - classics, some pop, and nothing cheesy! It was also great to have you on the mic being the announcer of sorts so people knew what was happening next. Some of our timing got moved around due to photos, and that all rolled so smoothly too, nothing was a hassle. You were great and easy going to work with, asked all the right questions, and had a perfect music mix ready for our awesome wedding!!!
---- Alix K. (New York, New York)

We had SteadyJake DJ our wedding after a recommendation from a friend. Jake is very professional in all aspects, the music was great. We could not have been any happier with choosing him to be our DJ. Would recommend him to anyone!
---- Rachel S. (South Australia)

DJ Steady Jake was a perfect addition to our wedding! We got married at a ranch and had the ceremony outdoors at some distance from any buildings. Jake was able to provide microphones and music for the ceremony even in a field, which was incredible. He also played music throughout the entire event in several different locations on the ranch (ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and reception), and the transitions were seamless. We were so impressed by his ability to read the room and select the right music for the moment, incorporating our picks and some of his own to set the right mood and keep people engaged. He made the planning and logistics of our wedding so much easier, and was a huge factor in making the event successful and fun for us and our guests. I would highly recommend him to anyone planning a wedding in western Wyoming!
---- Courtney L. (Stillwater, Minnesota)

SteadyJake was a great addition to our wedding vendors! He worked very well with our planner and the venue to help create a wonderful wedding. He was very accommodating with our music selections and even found some specific instrumental music based on our request without any pushback. As a special touch, he recorded our entire wedding ceremony for us to enjoy for the rest of our lives. It is really magical to listen to that audio while looking through our wedding book. SteadyJake did a great job and was very professional and accommodating through the whole process. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ for a special event in the Jackson, WY area.
---- Abe R. (Salinas, California)

Thank you to SteadyJake for making our wedding go so smoothly! Jake was an absolute professional. It was such a relief to not have to worry about the timeline of events... he kept us on track and everyone happy! If you're on the fence about hiring a DJ, let me make it easy for you - go with SteadyJake! The music really sets the tone for the wedding and having a professional team behind you to help make the night memorable and fun was key for us. Thank you Jake for being a part of the happiest day of our lives so far!
---- Angela L. (Haslett, Michigan)

DJ Jake was one of the true highlights of our wedding. Faced with a small wedding of 25 out of towners, ages 2-80, Jake kept everyone dancing through the evening with a perfect mix of songs. Beyond his well thought out music choices, we enjoyed his well-timed and thoughtful comments when transitioning between songs and speeches. We were never able to meet in person before the wedding, but his set felt personally tailored with the groom's college fight song thrown in. Thanks Jake for keeping the party going.
---- Marka A. (Houston, Texas)

Jake did a great job at the wedding. I had a very rustic and country wedding and he was able to play a wide variety of music for everyone that attended. I had so many different people come up to me and ask where I found him! My only complaint would be that he was a little hard to get a hold of before the wedding and I was concerned about the last minute details. All in all, I would definitely hire Jake again! He worked with me to make sure that the songs were exactly what I wanted and he also made a phenomenal MC! He added humor and life to the wedding and I am so happy I had him as a part of my day!
---- Makayla W. (Star Valley, Wyoming)

There are not enough words to thank you for the AMAZING job you did at our wedding! You played songs we LOVE that we didn''t even ask you to play (How did you know?) and you kept p[eople on the dancefloor all night! It was truly PERFECT. We had the best time, and you were a huge part of that! Thank you, you are the best!
---- Amanda F. & Aaron P. (St. Paul, Minnesota)

Jake was really wonderful to work with! He allowed us to use his equipment and services for the ceremony as well, which was a HUGE help for a destination wedding. Jake had a great play list, just the perfect mix of oldies, country, then later pop and fast songs to keep the crowd on their feet all night!
---- Caitlin T. (Arlington, Texas)

Groom here. My wife and I had our wedding reception at Togwotee Mountain Lodge in October of last year and we hired SteadyJake to DJ the reception. Leading up to the wedding, SteadyJake was great at working with us and following up with us during the planning process (which was key given how busy things got in the months leading up to the wedding). SteadyJake is a veteran so he knows how to make sure you and him are on the same page. Another perk is that we were able to have our guests provide us with songs they wanted to hear and then we simply passed this list off to SteadyJake and he chose when to play them during the reception.
Regarding the event itself, he was excellent at deciding when the best time was to play certain songs. It was awesome having background music during dinner and it wasn’t overbearing. Additionally, SteadyJake integrated really well with the toasts during the reception and had clever quips/sound bites that weren’t annoying and helped transition from one toast to the next. The dance party was epic and many of our guests commented on how much they loved the DJ.
A final note: His rates are reasonable and he gave us a lot of flexibility in how long he could play for. Because we didn’t know how the vibe of the reception would feel (we weren’t sure if guests would be too tired to keep going at 10 p.m.), we were able to arrange some flexibility. Specifically, this consisted having the option of handing off a check at the reception if we wanted to keep the dance party going until 11p.m, which we did!
Thanks again SteadyJake!
---- Max and Bonni L. (Jacksonville, Florida and Hastings, Minnesota)

Steady Jake was the bomb. Seriously. He made everything so easy and stress-free leading up to our wedding and that night was amazing. Just perfect. I didn’t really care what music, I just wanted to dance and boy did i. My husband is very picky about the music and he was blown away. All the guests were. Hats off!
---- Shea B. (Fort Collins, Colorado)

I just wanted to shoot you a note to thank you for your work on Saturday. We thought you did a great job with the music and handled your responsibilities extremely professionally. You were locked in!
---- Sean S. (Brewster, New York)

Expect a formal thank you card in the mail soon. But just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing night!!! The one thing everyone keeps talking about (besides how much wine was drank) was how amazing the music was and dancing. If you ever need a referral send them my way!!
---- Mollie F. (Jackson Hole, Wyoming)

I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate you "DJing" Dancing with the Sublette Stars! I have heard many wonderful comments about how wonderful the DJ was.Thank you for all your extra efforts to help make this event so successful, it is truly appreciated. I will look forward to working with you in the future.
---- Becky G. (Pinedale, Wyoming)

Steady Jake DJ was a great addition to our wedding. He was very easy to work with the planning. He helped us pick shows for our first dance and father/daughter dance that were perfect! He was a great DJ, had our guests dancing all night! Great guy and very professional. We would highly recommend Steady Jake DJ.
---- Stacey K. & Ryan G. (Rochester, Minnesota)

Steady Jake was a great addition to our wedding event in Jackson Hole in July of 2015. Jake has great command of the audience and his presentation is professional and a whole lot of fun. He definitely goes the extra mile to make sure the guests enjoy the event. We would highly recommend any wedding couple should consider Steady Jake for your fabulous Jackson Hole wedding event.
---- Johnny M. & Terry P. (Amarillo, Texas)

SteadyJake was a wonderful DJ to work with. We had a very non-traditional wedding and he did an excellent job of working with all our requests. He was able to provide music during the ceremony, find Latino music that was perfect for our wedding that blended American and Peruvian traditions. He was even willing to DJ an "hora loca" which is traditional in Peru but I'm guessing the first time he had ever been asked to do that here. Our friends and family all night told us that it was the most fun they had ever had at a wedding and SteadyJake was integral in creating that atmosphere.
---- Karren L. & Jose O. (Laramie, Wyoming - Peru)

Jake Nichols is amazing! Best DJ, hands down. He showed up on time with the best equipment and looking really sharp and ready to get people dancing and having a good time. Jake is personable and has great rates.
---- Roslyn G. (Jackson Hole, Wyoming)

I've been meaning to write you a quick note since the wedding but time and other pressing issues got the best of me. We enjoyed your work at the reception and, although we were constantly busy meeting and greeting and taking pictures, the songs we did hear were on point and well received. You did a good job. My main regret is that Christina and I didn't have more time to get out there and dance a little with the group.
---- Brent E. & Christina C. (Washington, DC)

Jake was really great to work with over the course of the whole wedding planning process. He was very responsive and took the time to make sure we had all of our technical needs met between the ceremony sound and the actual wedding music. The wedding day was amazing. Our guests had a great time and I can't tell you how many compliments we received on the music and DJing. People were exhausted from dancing and had such a great time! We highly recommend Jake.
---- Ginny L. & Matt H. (Boston, Massachusetts)

Jake did an outstanding job at our wedding!! He arrived in a very timely manner and was very prepared! We didn't really give him a set playlist and the music he came up with was AMAZING!! He had literally everyone dancing from the little kiddos to my 90 year old grandma was up and dancing almost the whole evening!! I highly recommend Dj Jake! He made our wedding amazing!
---- Robyn C. (Burly, Idaho)

I was very happy to have found you because I had a ton of issues with my previous DJ and him backing out at the last minute. You answered my inquiry about services within 24 hours and gave me a great price with amazing service. I never for one minute had to worry about what you were doing or whether you would deliver as every time I thought about it, you were on point! I especially appreciated that you kept to my "no play" list because two of my friends complained that you wouldn't play country and I realized I had made a mistake and let you know...then you played it and everyone was happy :) Thanks so much for being a great partner in my dream wedding and if I'm ever having another event in that neck of the woods, I will certainly give you a call. Thanks again.
---- Cassandra T. (Simi Valley, California)

Just wanted to thank you for making our wedding so great! Our guests had a great time and I can't tell you how many compliments on you and your DJing we received. People were exhausted from dancing and had such a great time :) It's hard to believe it's all over! Anyways, thanks again and definitely let us know if you ever need a reference or recommendation!
---- Ginny L. & Matt H. (Massachusetts - Denver)

At our wedding, when it was time for the dance party to begin, Jake took the reins and the fun did not stop for hours! He really took charge and made the evening just as amazing as the day. I gave him a few songs that I had to have and let him fill in the rest. He did an amazing job and we could not have been happier!
---- Tricia & Josh R. (Jackson, Wyo)

Jake is the man. Period. We had a small wedding (38 people), but Jake knew how to get everyone on the dance floor all night long. He brought the party to our wedding! Big personality - so much fun! Book SteadyJake for your wedding!
---- Lisa & Jesse (New York City)

This guy is fantastic! Jake was so wonderful!! He handles a wide variety of musical tastes and we danced all night long. Everyone I talked to raved about the music. It was perfect.
---- Lisa Y. (Jackson, Wyo.)

We didn't want the traditional wedding reception with the same old music, etc. What we got was truly unique. We felt like the DJ spent a lot of time planning something special just for us and played music that just seemed to fit right all night.
---- Alison B. (Denver, Colo.)

...classy, professional, fun...
---- Katy R. (Boston, Mass.)

I honestly never thought anyone could get HIS side of the family to dance. All of us were sweaty and exhausted. Don't hire Jake if you have a history of heart problems.
---- Tracy A. (West Islip, New York)

Everything went smoothly and I don't consider our group easy to please. I haven't seen my granddad have so much fun in years. That meant a lot to me, that the DJ took into consideration the older folks in the crowd.
---- Trista J. (Bradenton, Fla.)

Steady Jake started early and played late. Best of all he kept things moving and took charge over every event. He added humor and made sure we all had a good time.
---- Tammy C. (Santa Monica, Calif.)

Jake had a great rapport with the guests - did a super job making everyone feel like they could request songs and have fun. He was great with the children who attended and they were just as entertained as the adults were. Jake followed the wedding reception itinerary carefully and he also added helpful tips that made reception go very smoothly. Everyone loved Jake! I think all of our guests danced the entire night until the last song. Jake would make any party special and I highly recommend him!
---- Lori C. (Cocoa Beach, Fla.)

Jake kept our wedding guests dancing throughout the night with a great mix of music. Jake helped to keep the evening on track and did a great job with music selection to keep the party going and everyone had such a fun time. Thanks for making our special day so fun! We loved the cowboy hat too!
---- Alexandra A. (Atlanta, Georgia)

Jake did a wonderful job. He was very prompt and on time. He played a variety of music that was very pleasing to all the wedding guests. Everyone enjoyed the music and had a great time. I would highly recommend him.
---- Trista J. (Whitefish, Mont.)

Thanks for doing such a great job and participating in our day! We really had a great time.
---- Maggie H. (Star Valley, Wyo.)

Our wedding was a great success and much fun, thanks to Steady Jake and his brilliant talent for sound. We knew that choosing him for our dj was the right decision from the very beginning and he proved us right! Thanks Jake for your time and we will pass the word along for anyone else looking for music for their event!
---- Marilee T. (Jackson, Wyo.)

It was a pleasure working with Jake for our wedding. He has a great down to earth personality, good sense of humor and fun to work with. Our guests loved him as they danced the night away. He was absolutely wonderful!! I would highly recommend him to anyone.
---- Michelle K. (Jackson, Wyo.)

We thoroughly enjoyed your DJ-ing services, and the quality of the musical mix. You adapted the playlist throughout the night appropriately to what the crowd was wanting just by feeling the mood on the dance floor. It helped keep the party going even across a wide-range of ages, and we never had to worry about the music. You also can't beat that cowboy hat!
---- Catie T. (Alexandria, Virg.)

Just wanted to tell you thanks for the great job you did at our wedding. Everything went so well and you had a lot to do with that! We had a ton of comments from our guests about what a great DJ we had and I couldn't agree more!
---- Jessica M. (New York, NY)

The d.j. did a fantastic job! Thanks for helping make our wedding so much fun!
---- Cecile E. (San Diego, Calif.)

We would definitely recommend SteadyJake to others for weddings or other events! He was easy to work with prior to the big day, we didn't have to worry about him, the music, or the set up, he handled it all. His equipment is very professional and Jake had on a sleek duster and cowboy hat! He looked great and the guests loved it! The music was perfect throughout the evening. Jake was able to maintain the mood of the wedding and keep people dancing! We asked for no hokey music and he held true to that while pleasing the ages. Thanks so much Jake! We danced like crazy and had a blast!
---- Nick and Sara D. (Jackson, Wyo.)

Jake provided a great time for our party with a wide variety of dance music and kept us dancing until we were danced out. We like to dance and had a blast! His service is portable and quick to set up. Thanks, Jake.
---- Susan M. (Wilson, Wyo.)

Wanted you to know we received many compliments about your performance. Thanks so much for helping make our wedding so wonderful and special. We will certainly recommend your services to others.
---- Lisa S. and Ed L. (Washington, DC)

SteadyJake provided excellent entertainment at our wedding reception. He played the music we requested and made everything flow smoothly. Thanks SteadyJake for a wonderful wedding reception with great tunes and lots of dancing! We had a wonderful time at the wedding, and everything was perfect. I would love to recommend you to future brides.
---- Leah L. (Sacramento, Calif.)

Hands down that was the most fun dance floor I have ever been on!! You far, far surpassed our expectations, friend. You were AMAZING!! I'm not sure how to thank you properly. I owe you, huge! Thanks for making our wedding the best party of the year, officially. I'd be happy to be a reference for 2012 brides! I'm still laughing at the fact that we got all 130 guests to sing the Canadian national anthem! Classic. I think the timing worked out perfectly, Jake. Thanks for being so professional. You really are amazing.
---- Erin M. (Alberta, Canada)

We were SO happy with how the evening went (well with besides it being too short!) Jake was a pleasure to work with, he was timely, professional, and really good at making sure that even though we were planning from out of town that all of our concerns were addressed. He really honed in on exactly what we wanted. I've been to a lot of weddings and honestly Jake is one of the best DJ's we've heard. If he's available you should definitely consider him!
---- Catrina C. (San Francisco, Calif.)

My mother still hasn't stopped talking about that reception. She tells everyone about that night and how everyone was dancing dancing dancing. Thanks again, Jake. We are so happy we went with you.
---- Jennifer F. (Jackson, Wyo)

Thanks you so much for making our wedding perfect and so much fun. The music was great and everyone had a blast. You were awesome!!!
---- Theresa W. (Pittsburgh, Penn.)

SteadyJake was the perfect match for our wedding reception. The dance floor was packed all night long, which we were ecstatic about because we had a small wedding! SteadyJake is professional, fun and he made our reception an exceptional experience for everyone. We highly recommend SteadyJake for your next wedding or event! Thanks so much for everything Jake. This recommendation for your website doesn't say enough about how great you made our wedding!
---- Lisa P. (Brooklyn, NY)

I just wanted to thank you for the great job you did at our wedding reception and being part of our dream day. Many of our guests commented on how great you were and had nothing but positive things to say about you. So thank you a million!
---- Jamie V. (Fresno, Calif.)

I thought the timing on every song for the ceremony was perfect. There was never any 'down time' between songs. You had a good flow all throughout the ceremony.
For the reception I thought the songs you picked were perfect. Everyone was dancing literally all night long and it turn out to be amazing! There was a good mix of slow songs and upbeat songs. I personally like the fact that there were more upbeat songs because if there were more slow songs then it would have tired people out and everyone would have left earlier.
You were set up way in advance and you dressed for the occasion which was awesome! We had a very good experience with you and I would recommend and have recommended you to future couples.
---- Maggie H. (Jackson Hole, Wyo.)

Could not have asked for a better DJ- excellent music, great to work with, very professional. Will hire again for future events!
---- Kara A. (Jackson Hole, Wyo.)

Jake Nichols (SteadyJake DJ) helped make our first 'Dancing with the Stars' event a huge success. He was professional, great fun and easy to work with. He has an excellent playlist and great ideas ... he literally set the tone for the evening by the way he planned the beginning, end and transitional music throughout the event. We plan to use him again for this year's 'Dancing with the Stars.'
---- Patti B. (Jackson Hole, Wyo.)

I am so happy we hired Jake to be our DJ! He was very conscientious and easy to work with. He respected our requests and the suggestions he made were perfect. His ability to read the crowd and keep the mood flowing made our wedding more fun than I could have ever imagined.
---- Karen M. (Jackson Hole, Wyo.)

OK, so you know the "hora"? The Jewish dance tradition? That was the highlight of the night. Except for the rest of the dancing. Everyone keeps talking about "that DJ." Where did you find him? Where is he from? Does he travel back east?
---- Haven H. (New York City, NY)

SteadyJake was a pleasure to work with. We were nervous about everything. Flowers, food, ceremony, my dress. There was so much to be anxious about except the music. From the first email, I knew we had the right guy. Jake made it easy.
---- Andrea S. (Bend, Ore.)

You were amazing. I really mean that. Every song was perfect. I will never forget that night.
---- Jenni C. (Denver, Colo.)

Jake played the songs we really wanted. He wasn't afraid to tell us when they weren't going to work. Jake's selection for dancing was all over the place. He has a gift.
---- Diane B. (Boston, Mass.)

After talking with Jake over email, I knew I didn't have to worry about the DJ or music at our wedding. He was very timely, organized and self-sufficient! He worked wonderfully without much direction from me which was such a huge relief!!! He handled the venue and all the requests from guests and my parents with ease! He kept everyone dancing and added the perfect touch of humor to our day. I highly recommend Jake for any dance party or wedding!
---- Jenny O. (North Bend, Wash.)

My Story

Boom the Room!

Serving the Jackson Hole area
 (307) 413-1488

  I've been DJing and performing at weddings for 15 years now. I have 20 years experience as a radio DJ. I used to be a music critic in New York City, so I am well-versed in all genres of music. If you hear it in the club, Spotify, on the radio or at the rodeo — I have it.  

  My mobile DJ experience includes weddings of all kinds, dances, fundraisers, private parties, and city-sponsored events.

  I have played extensively throughout western Wyoming and eastern Idaho.

​  I want you to have the best. I have worked for most every DJ company in this area at one time or another. I have seen them all play. If I am within your budget, I promise you will not find a better DJ at any price. I plan and fuss over your wedding probably to the extent you will. I want everything to be perfect. 

​  Song selection is a mix of direction from the client and what I observe at the venue. I am always reading and reacting with the music to audience feedback. For weddings, I provide bride & groom with a song checklist. You choose the type of music you want, artists you like, or exact songs. We can have a "must play" list or a "do not play" list. I don't do this for my own edification. It's your night.

​  This isn't just another gig for me. I do this because I'm good at it. I truly enjoy making sure you and your guests have an unforgettable evening.
