After every event, we ask our clients to rate their DJ’s performance on a scale of 1-10 (1=Poor, 10=Excellent) in six areas: Introductions/Announcements, Music Selections, Coordination of Activities, Appearance, Professionalism and Overall Performance. Please read below to see how our past clients have rated us and the feedback they have provided. Let us know if you would like to contact any of these customers as references and we will be happy to put you in touch with them.
We received a ton of compliments on Mark's performance from various guests and I also gave his name to several people I know who are getting married this year. We literally could not leave the dance floor. Every time we were for some reason off dance floor, we found ourselves running back because of an awesome song coming on. Mark transitioned from song to song in a seamless way that made it impossible to not want to stay! Not only did Mark create the perfect dance party, but Mark also helped my dad in giving the most thoughtful father of the bride speech I've ever heard. Music is something that my dad and I have bonded over since I was little, so my dad worked with Mark (secretly) and incorporated various songs into his speech. To be able to incorporate music into his speech was just so special. Thank you again for making our wedding perfect.
Awesome job… most people we’ve ever had on the dance floor. Thank you so much!
Nick was great! Will definitely reach out for future events.
Thank you so much!! I can't tell you how many people came up to us and told us how great all of the music was. It was perfect, and you did such an amazing job! I couldn't have imagined it any better, and you had the dance floor totally rocking. I will definitely fill out the survey, but wanted to also let you know personally how awesome it was and how great you did for our most special day. Thanks again Mark!
A great time was had by all!
Mark - we were very happy with everything. You did a great job with music, introductions, schedule, staying connected throughout the night, etc. Thanks so much!
We love working with DJ Chicago! Nick was on time, professional, and had all the right music! He even helped us coordinate sound with our on-site musicians. Thanks again, DJ Chicago!
I just took the client survey for you! Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback; everything was amazing and went beyond our highest expectations. Everyone loved the music and we were so thrilled at how packed the dance floor was all night. As soon as I have a minute to create a Yelp account, I'll post this review for you: "I cannot say enough good things about Mark Rankin and DJ Chicago. From our initial correspondence, Mark and his team were prompt, flexible, and extremely easy to work with. I planned my wedding from out of town, and DJ Chicago made it very easy to communicate via both phone and email leading up to our wedding. Mark is super easy to talk to, and I felt like he "got" our music tastes after just a few minutes of meeting. I was most impressed by Mark's ability to read the dance floor and adjust his selections accordingly throughout our reception. He seamlessly mixed one song into the next, and if our guests weren't feeling a particular song, he would almost immediately swap it out for a different one. Our dance floor was packed all night, and many of our guests shared that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. It was abundantly clear that Mark contributed to their positive experience. If you're looking for a reasonably-priced, professional, and incredibly skilled DJ for your wedding, this is your company." Thank you again, for everything!
Dylan was great. So incredibly professional and detail-oriented. He courted our input regularly and made sure that we were comfortable with the plan for our wedding reception.
Nick was amazing! Our guests couldn't believe how full the dance floor stayed all night. The music was the #1 compliment we received regarding our wedding.
John was the DJ for my wedding. He was perfect! I loved that when I went to look at my venue for the first time, he was standing there all ready to go and super organized. I will definitely recommend DJ-Chicago.
Nick was great. He's playlist kept students (and faculty) out on the floor all night. He also took requests and played all of them. Awesome guy too!
Nick was fabulous! We loved working with him and his music selections kept people on the dance floor all night! Several guests commented they had never seen so many people on a dance floor all at once. Nick checked in with us throughout the night and did a great job keeping the evening on schedule. We would recommend DJ Chicago in a heartbeat! Thanks Nick!
We had a blast at our wedding and are so thankful to Dylan for keeping the dance floor packed!
Nick was great! He took requests from both of us and checked in with us at the perfect times to make sure we were happy about his music choices. He even ventured into different genres of music to test it out at my request, and when it didn't work out, he made the transition back to what was working. I cannot thank Nick, and DJ-Chicago enough for helping us with our great event and getting everybody on the dance floor! We received great feedback from our guests the entire night!
DJ Mark went above and beyond to help make our wedding reception the best day of our lives. He was incredibly professional, thorough, and communicative. He kept us right on track for all of our major moments, and listened to the requests of the bride, groom and our families that day. He was accommodating to a few last minute changes and really got a sense of our vibe and taste in music for the day. We would HIGHLY recommend DJ-Chicago & DJ Mark for any our friends or family member's future weddings or events in Chicago.
DJ Nick was awesome! the whole process went perfectly. we met a few weeks before the wedding with song selections and certain requests and Nick nailed it! We were so happy to work with DJ- Chicago! We highly suggest hiring DJ Chicago and Nick for any function... All the guests raved about the night and especially the music, thank you again!
Dylan did a wonderful job at our wedding. There were some unplanned requests that came up throughout the night (stopping music for a couple photos) and Dylan handled it all very well. After the meal was finished, I think some people were eager to get on the dance floor, but the timing ended up working out great, and everyone had plenty of time to dance! Thank you Dylan for your professionalism and for some great music!
Gil provided excellent entertainment at our wedding! He read the crowd well and selected the perfect songs to keep the party alive! We really appreciated how well he communicated upon arrival and throughout the evening, touching base to see how my husband and I were feeling about the song selections. We couldn't have hopes for a better DJ than Gil! Thank you DJ-Chicago!
We used DJ Chicago for our wedding. Mark was our DJ and was awesome! He kept the dance floor packed and everyone dancing. Mark really helped with the flow of the wedding, from speeches to special dances etc. we highly recommend DJ Chicago for any entertainment needs, especially weddings! We couldn’t have been happier with our DJ selection for our wedding!
Excellent! Chad followed all of our music selections, adjusted to the crowd, and made any last minute announcements for group pictures.
Chris was absolutely great, he found us when he needed to and played a great set of songs that both our parents/their friends and us/our friends really enjoyed. All of the announcements and the required items were very smooth transitions. I could not have asked for anything more or better!
Dylan was Fantastic! Our wedding was two weeks ago and friends are still telling me how awesome the music was! We were so lucky to have him on our wedding day! He rocked it!
We would 100% hire you again and are already recommending you to friends. Even Cynthia knew and liked pretty much every song you played, which is a darn hard feat. And if your music selection wasn't good enough, the fact that you almost killed yourself taking the picture of us at the end of the night sealed it for us. We really love that photo, it's probably the one we show the most when people ask how the wedding was.
Everything ran smoothly! Jared was very nice and professional. Thanks!
Chris did an amazing job of reading the crowd and playing great music! My one request was that the dance floor was full all night long and he definitely delivered. Our dance floor was still full when the lights came on at the end of the night. Chris even made a point to tell me the night was almost over and ask if there was anything he hadn’t yet played that I wanted to hear. Everyone still talks about how the wedding was a blast! I would absolutely recommend DJ Chicago to other couples. Thanks Chris for helping us throw such a great party!
Nick did a great job! Played exactly the type of music we wanted! Thank you!
Thanks for KILLING it. Everyone had an amazing time.
Mark was amazing and such a pleasure to work with! He was very flexible with us being out of town when it came to planning. All our guests raved about the music and had a blast at our wedding. Thank you for everything!
We'll be leaving a GREAT review for you guys in a few days! (We're in Europe right now) but I just want to let you know, Chris was AMAZING. he helped make our wedding absolutely incredible, and we are forever grateful to him, and DJ Chicago. THANK YOU!!!
DJ Chicago, and more specifically Dylan, was absolutely perfect for our wedding! From our first meeting, Dylan was very attentive and helpful, really understanding exactly what type of music and ambiance we were going for. In the few months leading up to the wedding, Dylan was always quick to respond whenever I had a question or wanted to make a change... even last minute changes before the reception! He played all of our favorite songs and made sure to avoid any "do not play" songs. I have had multiple guests during and days after the event tell me how great the DJ was and that they loved the music. Not only was the service great, but the price was the most reasonable I had found in the city. Given the opportunity, I would absolutely choose DJ Chicago again and I will be referring them to any friends I have getting married in the city. Thank you so much!
Nick McMann was our wedding DJ and he went above and beyond our expectations- from the planning calls, to being super responsive to our emails and questions, he was super helpful. The day of the wedding he took care of the ceremony music, reception music, and even came out to get us for the flower toss (which I forgot about!). He kept us on schedule and made sure we were happy the entire night. Literally our dance floor was rocking the entire night and we've had so many people say it was the best wedding- and wedding music that they've ever heard. Thank you so so much Nick!
Gil was fabulous and love how organized Nick was! Great selection of music. I got so many compliments. My friend Jillian who recommended DJ-Chicago said that you were always organized professional and on time. She was 100% correct. I will be recommending your services and will call again for any dj needs we have in the future!!
We can't even begin to express how happy we were with our overall experience with DJ-Chicago, specifically Mark. Very personal, accountable, and organized. We gave a list of songs (must plays as well as songs that we like for him to work with)---he managed to get through all of them plus so many more between ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. He managed to blend from country to 2K hip hop back to Wilson Philips---well done, Mark! The dance floor was full all night!
Nick was amazing! From our first meeting, he helped guide me with all of the little details I would not have otherwise thought about for our wedding. He helped develop a perfect timeline. A week or so before the wedding, I also asked him if he could edit the song I wanted to use for the father-daughter dance so that I could use the first and last verse of the song and within 30 minutes he had already sent me back the edit which was AMAZING! He kept everything seamless for the wedding and made our lives so much easier. He continued to check in on me during the wedding to make sure I was happy with the songs and that everything was going as planned. I had so many people come up to me to say he was the best DJ they had ever had at a wedding. The dance floor was constantly full. I truly cannot say enough good things! The service of DJ-Chicago in general was great. The response time on their end was so quick and they really did just put my mind at ease for that whole part of the process.
Nick was AMAZING to work with. He was so attentive and extremely accommodating. I can't thank him enough for getting everyone out there and having a blast!!!
Just back from the honeymoon today! Filled out the survey. You were for sure a 10 on every dimension. I LOVED my huge dance party. It was exactly what I wanted. I’m sure you could tell. I don’t think I left the dance floor the whole night. I was a sweaty mess. That is a huge success. Everyone had such a blast. Even Matt who doesn’t usually dance voluntarily got out there. Just today he asked me if there’s a record of the list of stuff you ended up playing because he wants to relive it. I’m not sure you actually keep that, but if you do and can send our way that would be awesome. I am 99% sure you don’t though because you just feel the room and do your thing and make it awesome! Anyways, thank you again soooooooooooooooo much. It was literally perfection and my favorite part of my wedding.
John was fantastic. He was great at communicating the wedding events with the whole wedding party, did a phenomenal job of mixing instruments as needed (like my dad's guitar, the pianist and flutist), had perfect volume for dinner time, and threw a sensational party. We could not have been any happier with his candor, professionalism, and performance for making a hopping party.
Everything was great and working with Mark was easy and we had no issues. The quests loved the music and keep asking for the playlist. We appreciate all the help.
Dylan was incredible! He was so friendly and professional leading up to the wedding and on the evening as well! We got so much positive feedback on the music selections and that for the whole evening there were multiple generations out on the dance floor. It was an amazing night and Dylan's performance really made the party!
The music was amazing! Chad kept the feeling up beat and was personable. He made the party experience perfect! Would hire him specifically again for any upcoming events.
John did an amazing job! He kept everyone dancing all night plus he was very professional and on top of everything especially in regards to timing. Several of my guests commented on how great he was and said they wanted to hire him for their upcoming weddings!
We had a great time, the mics worked flawlessly in the space, and our guests loved the music. Thanks so much for everything, Mark!
Perfect music selection/setup for what we needed!
Dylan was amazing and the communication with DJ-Chicago was impeccable throughout the planning process. We got tons of compliments from guests about music selections and his humor during announcments. He kept us on schedule (thank goodness!) and helped direct us where we were needed. Can't say enough great things!!!!
We cannot thank you enough for making sure every detail was perfection! Mark was so easy to work with and so organized from first meeting to final dance. We also appreciated the honest feedback for our song selections. Music was one of the most important parts of our day and our entrances required a bit of extra work, but everything came off without a hitch. I cannot tell you the amount of compliments we have received. People were amazed that the dance floor stayed packed from first song to last. Mark was there early, hustled to quick change music set up when our cocktail was rained out, and made sure we stayed on schedule and stayed late so we could keep the party going. All we wanted was a packed dance floor all night, and we got it! Thank you for making our reception exactly what we wanted it to be and more!!
We just want to comment on how fantastic Chris was. We have gotten tons of compliments on how it was one of the most fun dancing weddings a lot of our friends have been apart of, and that was largely due to the music selection. Chris was fantastic at organizing the evening. Introductions were exactly what we wanted. He ran things by my wife and I if needed, but did not bother us will small details. He was very good at being "behind the scenes" but also did his job above and beyond. The 2 things we wanted at our wedding was good food and good dancing, and we felt that Chris made that hope come true, and then some! So you guys have a wonderful company and we will definitely be recommending you. Thanks for making our day that much more special.
Nick - You absolutely CRUSHED it last night! Thanks so much for everything! I will be recommending you to anyone who asks for a DJ!
I wanted to thank you for everything you did for us for our wedding. I appreciated all the organization you exhibited. With all the craziness that tends to unfold the day of it's great to know someone is there helping to wrangle everything in. You nailed the music. Jessica loved everything you played. It's uncanny, I think you may know what we like a little more than we do. I also wanted to thank the rest of your staff who helped along the way. Everyone we talked to on the phone or email prior to our meeting was prompt and professional. You were one of the few vendors we dealt with who I can say that for. Sorry, for the late reply; we left for Spain that Monday and time kind of gets lost on vacation. Just finished your survey. We will definitely be recommended you guys to anyone that asks us for a DJ.
Nick was amazing, we really wanted to be sure people were on the dance floor the whole night and he made it happen. I had easily 10 different people come up to me during the wedding to compliment his choices. The party also felt like our own, we didn't want just the standard wedding playlist and Nick tailored the event to our taste perfectly.
