While attending Lamar University in 1987, Jeff Landry discovered his passion for making people dance. He decided to change the way parties went down. When he went to parties, no one would dance. Jeff volunteered to create a better party experience for his fraternity when finally, his talent set him apart from just a guy volunteering at parties to a well paying job that got him through college. After college, he started JPL Entertainment which now is thriving. Jeff has two sons, Josh and Jake, and a beautiful wife, Lisa.
Jeff realized his passion for music in college, because he was tired of going to parties where no one danced. He decided to bring his own sound equipment to these parties, and DJ himself. Party after party, Jeff started making a profitable business, which would soon become his life-long career. Jeff started JPL Entertainment which now has a team of 60 staff members, 10 of which mainly work in the office to assist clients with preparations for their event. Jeff also has a degree in communications and 12 years of experience with team building and challenges “ROPES” courses.
In 2001, Jeff married his high school love, Lisa. They were blessed with their first son Josh, who was born in 2005, and in 2006, they were blessed with their second son, Jake. Lisa is now involved as JPL’s President, and she also oversees the custom guest books as well as photo booths.
Jeff has a wide music variety, but of all, his favorite is Jazz. His love of music makes his job much easier and allows him to have fun with every event he works.
Jeff considers himself to be a hopeless romantic and loves a good wedding.
"Bethany and Cody's wedding reception was wonderful! Josh and Jake were wonderful with the photo booth.
Thank you for everything!"

40th Birthday Party, October 1, 2016
"The team of people I worked with at JPL went above and beyond my expectations from the start.
Jeff spent time on the phone with my mom and I together to ensure all our questions were answered. He
then entertained a face-to-face meeting with my sister-in-law, mom and I to explain JPL's services further.
Once we got closer to the event, he and his team fielded more questions and additions to our reception
with a genuine desire to understand what we wanted and make us happy! He did a great job getting to know
us and it was reflected throughout the event! Our reception was incredible - everyone was dancing,
laughing and having a great time! I was so impressed by the whole team's professionalism
and genuineness! Thanks sooo much!!"

"5 Stars all the way! If I could rate them a "10", I would! JPL Entertainment came to me as a
recommendation from a friend. I contacted JPL and their response was fast! Jeff was warm
and friendly - southern hospitality at its finest! After speaking with him & securing The Day,
the wedding planning tools they provide on their website upon booking became the LIFELINE to
my party. Details, Likes, Dislikes, Order of Events, etc - as a business owner, myself, I
appreciate their attentiveness to details because it shows that they truly
CARE about their clients."

Wedding Reception, June 28, 2016
"When our wedding was postponed a day because of the crazy Houston flooding, we were
scrambling to find a new venue and vendors in under 24 hours. The DJ that was scheduled
to work our Friday wedding had another event on Saturday; so, much to our relief,
Mr. Landry himself came out to DJ and saved the day. He did a fantastic job and made
everything flow smoothly amidst all the chaos of a last-minute wedding!"

Wedding Ceremony & Reception, May 28, 2016
"I was a nervous bride and they put all my fears to rest. They brought the mic for the pastor
so he could be heard during the wedding, and once the reception started they really stuck to
our schedule and kept us on track. It was amazing. Best dollar value of everything I spent on
this wedding. I will use them for personal parties, company parties and anything else I can
think of … Too much fun!! I love these guys!"
