District DJ is an experienced wedding company offering DJs, Musicians, Lighting, Photo Booths, and more for D.C., Maryland, Virginia & beyond.Background, Jon Smithfield (Owner, DJ/MC)
My career started with the owner of a local DJ company, who heard me making announcements at a local Sheetz gas station. She came up to me and said, “Hey buddy, I believe you’re in the wrong business, you should come work with me.” (yes, seriously – can’t make this stuff up). I quickly began training and shadowing other DJs at the company, at the ripe ‘ole age of 19 years. A few years later I moved to DC and started working for WeddingWire, which helped me gain even more insight into the events industry, ESPECIALLY weddings. After all of these amazing experiences, I built up the courage to start my own company – – – District DJ.
I love people and thrive off of their energy, which I return in kind. As a DJ, my greatest satisfaction comes from watching people on the dance floor moving with the music, it is truly satisfying to see people having an amazing time with friends and family.
When I’m not DJing, I enjoy blasting 90s & early 00s jams, playing video games (Warzone or Halo anyone?), visiting breweries/wineries, and hanging out with friends. Even though I’m a DJ, going to live music shows is one of my favorite things to do.
You can learn a lot about me from the amazing people that have left me reviews over the years (13 years and counting). If you are interested in DJs, Bands, Lighting, or Photo Booths, let’s chat. We can meet over coffee and/or drinks. Your safety is my priority, so phone calls and/or video chats are available as well. Looking forward to hearing from you, talk soon!
