Your DJ should be somebody you’d want as your friend. It may be a funny point of view, but you have to click with, and like the style and vibe of your wedding DJ. He/She will be entrusted with the flow and fun (and microphone) at the most important day of your life.
We spend a lot of time hand selecting our DJ’s and grooming them to make sure they fit the quality standards that Beat Squad Entertainment holds for personal service, managing expectations, directing the flow of your wedding day and music knowledge. Our DJ’s have diverse musical tastes and knowledge to accommodate any genre of music you prefer.
At your complimentary consultation meeting, Mike Salone, our Sales Manager and one of our DJs, will help match you up with just the right fit for your event. You’re always welcome to meet your DJ in person, but you can learn a little more about us here too. Just click on a DJ’s photo to read their bio, read a few of their reviews, see photos and videos of them in action and hear some of their mixes.
Mike SaloneDJ AXCESS
I started djing at THE Ohio State University in 2007 and got my start performing at bar mitzvahs and proms. Since then, I've become a dj for Crew SC and The Blue Jackets and proudly support them both. When I'm not working on djing, you can find me at the nearest music festival or cuddled up on the couch spending time with my xbox.
Top40 will always be my bread and butter, but if you're looking for a dj who can add some EDM, hip-hop, or latin flavor to your event, look no further.
In my dreams, my clients love working with me because of my technical ability and battle tricks. In reality, my clients love me because I'm a great listener who is able to mold my style of djing to cater to their needs. I am relentlessly organized and my biggest fear is an unsatisfied customer.
Now that you've read a little about me, I'd love to learn more about you, your next event, and how we can work together to make sure it is a success.

I pride myself on playing the music you want to hear. My DJ style, ability, and music knowledge is adaptable to any type of event.

Johnny HillDJ Juan Leon
Born and Raised in Ontario Ohio, I began my journey with nothing other than a CD player and a boombox with cassette tapes. After many years of studying the art of what it takes to become a great DJ, I found my way to the "big city" of Columbus to take on everything it could throw at me. Currently you can catch me spinning tunes across Ohio, where ever the people come to dance and as far as my car can drive.
I love my job as a DJ at Beat Squad Entertainment, and that transpires through my work and the relationship that I have with my clients. I enjoy working with clients to create a fun and customized event that really impresses them.

Jay SmithDJ Legend
East Columbus where I was born and raised, I found myself behind 2 turntables and a stack of records in 1994. That's when my love for music and entertaining others started.
Spending the years watching, learning and practicing the many ways one can be more than just a DJ. To be a complete entertainer.
I have shared the stages with some of the best DJs in the business (a lot come from Ohio) and opened shows for bands like Bachmann-Turner Overdrive, Juvenile, New Kids on the Block, Arianna Grande, Jonas Brothers and more. I have had and still have events in locations such Columbus, Chicago, New York, Indianapolis, Tampa, Orlando, Sarasota and more to come.
My mission at each event is to make sure the client gets the attention they deserve and to make the clients happy and have a great time. Every event , wedding or gig is different and should be treated that way. I hope this helps with you decision and look forward to seeing you on the dance floor.
Caliph ScottDJ Caliph Scott
One day a 12-year-old kid saw two turntables and a microphone in the back of a SOURCE magazine for $300 hundred dollars and he said to himself "I want to learn to dj." He worked all summer cutting grass and carrying golf bags. Armed with a magazine, a house phone, and a dollar store cashed box stuffed to the brim he asked his older brother to place the order and the rest was history.
Caliph is a lifelong performer and has spent years doing live theater and stand-up comedy all over the Midwest and East coast. When he is not on stage this winner of New Yorks Funniest (Gotham Comedy Club 2013) is bringing the rhythm and the energy to your event.
"I place a strong emphasis on understanding the client, their guest, and the vision for the engagement. I want to know If I am the right DJ for you. If I'm not, I would like to help you find that person. I specialize in weddings, and corporate events but am not stranger to tailgate parties and back yard BBQ's."
