    Tony has always shown a keen interest in music and radio since childhood. Tony now has a strong 15 years plus of professional deejaying experience to date. It all started when Tony joined his school radio station as a freshman. After only three short years at the radio station Tony surpassed everyone's knowledge on his team which led him to become the manager of the station by his senior year.

    During that time Tony, was the "go to" guy for deejaying college parties performing a wide range of music including top 40, pop, trance, house, and urban music. After holding two executive board positions for his college radio station Tony became the FM Program director.

    Two major qualities that set Tony apart from other deejay's is; a very professional attitude coupled with a tremendous amount of experience. To this day Tony continues to deejay mostly weddings, corporate events, and occasionally night clubs.

    You may have seen Tony at any of the following: Otakon Japanamae Convention - Main Stage (Baltimore), Nation, Platinum Night Club DC, Cafe Japone, The Black Hole Club and countless weddings, birthday parties, formal dinner/dances, corporate holiday parties, sweet 16s, and graduations.

    I was pleasantly surprised at Hesson Entertainment. We used them as our DJ and for up lighting. I talked with the DJ before our wedding twice over the phone and met with the owner to go over how we wanted the room set up at the venue 2 weeks before our wedding. I found this to be very helpful in making me feel relaxed with the whole evening. The DJ knew exactly what we wanted and did not want. He knew how to get everyone out on the dance floor and what to do to keep them going. We were very surprised at the number of people who were dancing as we thought we had a group that wasn't going to be that into dancing. I would recommend Hesson Entertainment to anyone!

    Hesson Entertainment provided the DJ service and uplighting for my wedding event. Along with adding their own professional touches, they were willing and able to make a lot of things personalized for us even beyond the music. Our MC was Tony and he made a point to get to know my husband and I and make sure we were happy with everything and filled us in to make us comfortable with scheduling and such! Also, due to a family incident we needed personal announcements made for the guests, which he gladly did! I would absolutely recommend Hesson Entertainment's DJ/Lighting services if you're getting married in the DC area :) they were awesome!!!

    Hesson was a great company to work with for our wedding. They understood our sound needs, and helped us partner with a vendor that could fulfill all of our multi-media requirements. Our guests danced like crazy, and many people were using Shazaam to find out what all the tunes were.

    We used Hesson Entertainment for our wedding reception DJ. Working with Michael was easy and straightforward and he took great care to walk through the reception planning and scheduling with us in advance, to ensure that everything went smoothly and we didn't have to worry about it on the wedding day. And, everything did go smoothly, we had an amazing dance party, and got rave reviews from our guests. Couldn't have asked for more!

    We could not have been more pleased with the DJ services of Hesson Entertainment at our wedding. They worked with us individually every step of the way, and significantly helped us fit within our budget and plan a timeline of events for the reception that could be coordinated with all of the music. Additionally, the reception could not have turned out better with the musical playlists and how everyone was upbeat because of the services. If we were ever to have DJ services again, we would only go with Hesson Entertainment. They far exceeded all of our expectations and we highly recommend them for any future event.

    Again I don't give out many 5.0's but with a few of my vendors I got very lucky. Michael is the owner and he comes to you, no matter where you are, around your schedule to meet with you personally. Right before your wedding he goes over the entire schedule. They are super flexible. They also bring the music you want so you can make sure it's right and they give you suggestions, which is always helpful with the TON of music that is out there. They did switch DJ's on my late in the game, but Tony picked it up for the short notice. I even threw him a curve ball when our family and friends decided they didn't want to participate in the garter and bouquet toss. He went right along. Also "Call me Maybe" was on our DO NOT play list (my husband HATES that song), he was offered up to $500 from our family and friends and he never played it. Also their lighting was fantastic and was exactly what I thought it would be. Their rates are extremely resonable and Michael helped work within my budget, which was very kind of him. I would definitely recommend them.

    Hesson Entertainment was a pleasure to work with and provided great service for our wedding. Since we had been planning the wedding across the country, Michael was extremely accommodating with meeting times and driving down to Virginia on two occasions to make sure everything was set. The planning forms that Michael provided and his sample timeline helped us plan our entire reception. He had a bunch of ideas on timing and songs so his expertise helped the reception planning a breeze. We did not meet our actual DJ (Tony) until the day of the wedding but we did speak with him on the phone two days before. We just had to trust everything would go of without a hitch and it did. DJ Tony kept the music going and was a great emcee. Overall, Hesson Entertainment was by far the most helpful vendor we worked with. Since all the other vendors just focus on one aspect of the wedding, they didn't have an end to end insight. However, Michael gave us advice on everything from ceremony to what time the DJ should make closing announcements.

    Hesson Entertainment is a MUST have for your wedding. I swear they are fantastic. I purchased the DJ adn Lighting package from them. Mike Hesson who is the owner was there the entire step of the way. Every vision that I had, and passed over to him he made it come true. They are by far very affordable and very very helpful. Tony is a great DJ he definitely took great notice to the audience and made sure that everyone had a fantastic time. I love them and I would most definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for great prices and EVEN BETTER SERVICE. Thanks Mike and your team for everything

    Hesson Entertainment was GREAT to work with. Very flexable with meeting schedules, prompt, prepared, ready to go, professional and open to any request/questions you may have. I received so many compliments and comments from my guests on how great the DJ was. He takes his time getting to know you and what you want, offers suggestions that may improve the flow of the reception and reminds you of things you may also have forgotten. I would recommend this company for anyone who asks my opinion.

    We first met Hesson Entertainment at a bridal expo at George Mason University. We interviewed every DJ there, but the Hesson booth was right next to the stage displaying live wedding bands that there was no way we could hold a conversation. Mike handed us a brochure and said (quite loudly over the din) that if we liked what we saw, to give him a call. Instantly we saw that Mike didn't subscribe to gimmicks, flair or flattery to get clients and after talking to him over the phone, we booked Hesson. We had a destination wedding in South Africa and then a month later Tony djed our wedding reception on Memorial Day weekend. His attention to detail, professionalism and attitude amazed everyone. Everything went off right. Tony even helped show our wedding video when the systems equipment fell through. The music had a perfect flow and ebb that kept everyone involved and the sound exceeded expectations- the perfect high, mid and bass levels. I would not hesitate to go with Hesson Entertainment again. To be frank, after the service we received, I wouldn't look anywhere else.
