Absolutely amazing! Gil was perfect!!
Mark was unbelievable, I honestly couldn't recommend anyone any higher. Since our wedding, I've gotten nothing but compliments on how great a time everyone had dancing. The dance floor was packed, with both the younger and older crowd, for no less than 3 hours. Dance battle between my old man and coworker was one of the highlights of the night. Mark was also really great to meet with prior to the big day, easygoing and informative.
Mark DJ'd our wedding and it was amazing. Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the music throughout the night. I'd recommend Mark for anyone looking for a DJ. Thanks again!
You were the BEST!!!
We had a blast!!!
Our maid of honor has an EXTREMELY difficult last name and Nick nailed it every time. My (maiden) last name isn't easy either and Nick did a great job. There were a couple songs where people started leaving the dance floor and Nick immediately transitioned into something else and they came right back! The dance floor was always crowded and we got SO many compliments from a VARIETY of ages on how much they liked the music. Thank you!!!!
Chris did a fantastic job and every thing went perfect. Chris was so well dressed that I thought he was a cousin of the groom I never met before until Rob told me that was the DJ. You guys have been a pleasure to work with and thank you again for making the reception wonderful!
Mark was absolutely wonderful! Very easy going, easy to talk to. He gave helpful suggestions and was very flexible and accommodating. He catered to the crowd, and everything from the ceremony to last call was perfect!
Mark was the DJ for our wedding on 10-10-15, and he was FANTASTIC! Right off the bat from the initial meeting, Mark was personable, friendly, and eager to get to know us. Throughout the process, he made sure he had everything correct and verified everything so that we were confident things would go just how we wanted. My husband and I had some unique additions to our reception that involved a LOT of logistics (i.e. placing a speaker outside, moving all 200 of our guests from the ballroom to the veranda for a firework show, which he also had to play the music for, and getting the guests back in the ballroom afterwards) That was no easy task, and Mark executed it flawlessly. On top of all of that, the dance floor was PACKED and I mean PACKED all night. I can't even tell you how many times people came up to us to tell us how great of a party it was and how awesome the music was. We would hire him again in a heartbeat! Mark was amazing!! THANK YOU!
Nick was AMAZING! We had so many compliments on Nicks work. We had a blast!
Nick was amazing and kept people dancing all night. He mixed in songs I didn't have on my list and it gave a great variety of new and old music. I loved that he didn't let certain songs play all the way through and rolled right into a new song after a minute or two. I had so many compliment on the music and am so thankful I went with DJ chicago! Thanks to Nick my reception ran smoothly and everyone danced all night. I had a blast! Thank you!!!
Mark - you did an amazing job. Our dance floor was filled the whole night and that was all we could have hoped for. Thank you for making our night so special. We would recommend you to anyone.
Mark - you did SUCH a great job at our wedding! I have had so many of our guests say our DJ was the "best they have ever heard at a wedding!" The process with you leading up to the wedding was so easy! That last meeting we had with you when you helped determine our music tastes and what we were hoping to hear was SO EASY. I was really overwhelmed about the notion of putting together a "must play" and a "do not play" list - but having a conversation with you really made it easy and you NAILED IT! Thank you for everything! You were great!!
Wonderful night. SO many compliments on the music. Chris read the room and kept the party going. So awesome.
John was amazing and kept all of our guests, including the bride and I, on the dance floor all night. He was very communicative and pleasant to work with. Would definitely recommend him to any people looking for amazing wedding dance music and mixes!
Nick was amazing. The song selection was spot on. We really appreciated how he approached us at 30 mins left at our wedding and asked if we wanted any other songs to be played. I would absolutely hire Nick/DJ Chicago again. Utterly amazing. Thanks!
You were AMAZING. You gave me the exact wedding I wanted: a fun-filled night of dancing. I have received so many compliments on your music selections and overall professionalism and presence at our wedding. I will recommend you to anyone and everyone I know who is planning a wedding. We are so appreciative of your services, and for making our day so special. I'm still so sore from dancing the night away. We are so so so grateful that we chose you to DJ the wedding. I've honestly never had so much fun at a wedding, and I know the music you picked made that happen!! Again, thank you so much. I may be a little bias, but that was the best wedding I've ever been to :)
Chris was the DJ at our wedding at the River Forest Country Club on 9/19/15, and now that life has slowed down a little, I wanted to write a quick Thank You! Pre-Wedding: Ryan and I were really thankful for the pre-wedding call we had with you and Chris. Going through the bridal party names, song choices, timing, and special needs made me feel much more comfortable with the flow of the evening. Your website with Top Song lists for each of the special dances/cake cutting/etc was very helpful for finding suitable songs. Wedding: Chris was on time and ready to go as guests arrived. All the names were pronounced perfectly when introducing the bridal party. Music volume during the dinner portion was perfect! My parents and grandparents (who were most concerned about the volume) were very complimentary. Chris did a great job of rolling with some in-the-moment changes to the program schedule. He was flexible and instrumental in keeping everyone together throughout the night. Announcements were professional and clear. The dancing portion of the night was non-stop with a packed dance floor from 8-11pm!! This is our family's second wedding with DJ-Chicago, so no surprises that it was a fantastic experience! Very, very happy with the evening celebration! Thank you, Chris, for all your preparations.
We had Nick for our DJ and used him for the ceremony, dinner hour and reception music. He nailed the ceremony music and transitions during the professional. The music during dinner was exactly what we wanted - great mix of crooner music but still upbeat to prevent anyone from getting sleepy. I cannot even begin to express how awesome the "party" portion of the reception was - no one left the dance floor! The music was spot on and if it didn't seem like the room liked a song he immediately read into it and switched over to something different. My matron of honor actually came up to me and said "Could he play a bad song so we can leave the dance floor for a minute... my feet hurt". Nick was so attentive to us and ensured we were getting exactly what we needed - I would absolutely recommend DJ Chicago (and Nick specifically) to anyone. It was a pleasure working with you and the value was outstanding.
After meeting with Mark the owner- I felt confident that he would be great to DJ our wedding. We met with Mark again a week before the wedding- and he was SOO helpful in helping give us music suggestions and song choices as my fiance and I weren't very particular. I only gave Mark one piece of guidance - and that was to keep the party dancing all night and that he did! He read the crowd, and kept all my guests dancing the entire night. I had so many people come up to me and say he was one of the best DJ's they've seen. He played a great mix of old & new - but not the lame old traditional wedding songs- he played some 90s hip hop that our whole group loved. He gave us great suggestions for our entrance song, pie cutting song, etc. after we told him the vibe we were going for that night. With his guidance we also ended the night with Bohemian Rhapsody - we had all of our guests screaming/singing along and it was hands down one of my highlights from the night! Mark/DJ Chicago was extremely professional, reasonably priced and soo helpful. We would highly highly recommend anyone book Mark for their wedding!
You (and the music) were absolutely the highlight of the night! Within MINUTES of the dance floor opening, we had guests telling us we had awesome music and all weekend, when I asked what their favorite part of the wedding was, all our family and friends agreed we had the best music of any wedding they'd been to. I kept saying all I wanted - other than getting married, of course - was a great party and a full dance floor and I could not have been happier with the outcome. The blending of songs was perfect, every transition made sense, and the floor was never empty from beginning to end. Whenever I had to leave the dance floor for any reason (dress adjustments, taking a photo, getting a drink of water) I was sucked back in immediately because I LOVED the song that was playing every time. And thank you for accommodating my bridesmaids' request and making them check with me first! I was happy to let them make an announcement, request a song, etc. but it meant a lot that you ran everything past me and John. You were so attentive and professional and I could see you working so hard while we and our guests had carefree fun. Thank you so so so much for making our wedding perfect!
Lynn and I thought Chad was just fantastic, and he helped make the our reception a truly fantastic event. He kept the dance floor filled the entire evening and had a variety of songs ready to go at all times. We had many compliments from friends and family, as well as the photographer and videographer, all of whom said they can't recall seeing a dance floor filled until the end of the reception. We really liked that Chad seemed to have as much fun with our music as we did. That type of energy and enjoyment for the job is great to see. Thank you again for everything!
Dylan was absolutely amazing! He incorporated all of our requests perfectly. He helped to create such an amazing and personal vibe for our wedding. EVERYONE cannot stop talking about how much fun they had dancing and seeing Dylan get into the music made it even better. Lastly, he helped us through a few personal hiccups in the flow of events with such care. I truly want to thank him for that. We would 100% recommend Dylan!
I just wanted to send an email to thank you guys for providing DJ services for our ceremony and reception. Nick was especially helpful with making our day special. He worked with my groomsmen to make sure we got a recording of the audio of the ceremony captured. The recording came out great and was exactly what we needed. He also helped us keep the night flowing on time during our reception when dinner service began to run long. We really appreciated these small things that made our day special.
Gil was great all night long. Everybody had an amazing time dancing.
We couldn't be happier with your service. Your preparedness and professionalism throughout this process was fantastic - and we can't thank you and John enough. John did an incredible job the entire evening. Not only did he play all the right songs at all the right times (we received SEVERAL compliments on the DJ and the dance floor) but he was extremely helpful keeping Kelly and I in the loop and making sure everything was moving along smoothly. Top-shelf all around. Thank you for everything.
We thought Nick did an awesome job. We received nothing but compliments about the music and everyone had a great time. He followed the lists that we provided and the transitioning of the music from early to late was great. We will recommend your company and Nick to anyone who asks.
John was awesome, no complaints. Couldn't have imagined things going any smoother.
Omg!!! DJ Mark (not you) was AWESOME!!! The mix or sequence of our variety of song picks (playlist - I hear called) blended amazingly with the crowd! The dance floor was never empty! I even think DJ Mark had fun - despite the horrible dance moves he had to witness! (Sorry! I cut loose!) He was so real and personable - new DJ name "DJ non-fiction". He can revamp spelling! Thank you thank you! Besides marrying George - second best was to have your team as our DJ! Mark (again not you) was a perfect fit and was super on with "our" directions. AND I learned "the whip ney ney". Boss man George caved and let it be played!!
Our wedding was fantastic and Mark was a huge part of that. We will be sure to fill out the review online. He kept the guests (and us) dancing literally the entire evening and everyone has raved about it. Truly an evening to be remembered. Thank you to you both for making it so great!
I just wanted to let you know how AWESOME Dylan was on Saturday! Everyone was raving about the music, and he was so easy and nice to work with. Thank you so much for everything; I cannot imagine ever using another DJ company ever again! I will be recommending you to all friends in the future, for sure! Thank you again!
Amazing job, Mark!!!
Chris kicked ass! Tons of compliments on music and he was more than we expected from setup, coordination, and performance.
100% you guys were the best vendor there. Nick was fantastic and even thought to fix dinner music when things were running behind. He's a total pro and was one of everyone's favorite parts. I got text messages about how he kept the party going all night. Couldn't have been happier with you guys, I'd say that to anyone!
John was AWESOME!!! He kept us dancing all night long. He put together a great playlist, and was extremely professional. Everything went so smoothly thanks to him. I would recommend DJ Chicago to anyone!
Chris did an incredible job reading our crowd and keeping everyone on the dance floor throughout the entire evening. The music selection was great and the night flowed very smoothly. Chris kept us (the bride and groom) in the loop on what to expect in terms of itinerary and next steps. He was extremely professional and dressed very sharp. We do not have enough good things to say about Chris and his performance. He did a great job!
I will submit an official survey on your site, but wanted to let you know that Dylan did a phenomenal job at our wedding. People are still talking about how much fun they had, and how the dance floor was constantly full, which truly speaks to the excellent job Dylan did. He really made the reception portion of the day exactly what we hoped for and more. He did a great job of mixing in the songs we requested into others that simply fit the energy of the crowd. Seriously, a great, GREAT job. And, he treated Missy and I so well, giving us extra time if we needed it, and keeping us posted on timelines, etc, without ever coming across as pressuring or rushing us if we were falling behind. Can't say enough great things about him, so be sure to pass that along to Dylan. The only regret we have is not being able to dance more due to the hectic-ness of the day for us. Thanks again Mark - was a pleasure working with you guys and you definitely delivered. Unfortunately I don't have too many more friends weddings approaching, but I can assure you that all my DJ reco's for any wedding, party, or event will be you guys.
Mark did an incredible Job!! People danced from our first dance to the very end of the night. Mark also kept us right on schedule and managed the wedding perfectly stat to finish. HIGHLY Recommended!
Nick really could not have done a better job. He was so supportive and helpful. He put us (bride and groom) so much at ease, controlling he schedule of events, as well as tweaking when surprises came up. The set list was perfect, and he really knew what the crowd wanted. We've received countless complements....couldn't have wished for more!
Mark did an awesome job. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. He got people out on the dance floor and made sure they stayed there. Everything went smoothly and all events and songs flowed together seamlessly. If we ever need another DJ, there's only one person that we would call, and that's Mark. From the day that we hired him, up until the day of our wedding, any questions we had were answered in a timely fashion. Mark, thanks for helping make our wedding day memorable.
Mark was awesome! Thank you so much!!!!
Now that Jeff and I are settling in to married life, I wanted to quickly write you and let you know how appreciative I was of all your work in making our wedding day perfect! The music/playlist/party was everything that we were hoping for the reception. Thank you so much for all your help throughout the wedding planning process.
Chris did an AWESOME job at our wedding. He was extremely professional, played a great mix of music, and knew how to keep the dance floor going until midnight. We would absolutely recommend both DJ-Chicago and Chris in the future. Thank you so much for sharing our special day with us. It was perfect.
Dylan was great at our wedding on the 15th. Dylan was very professional and accommodating to both Stefani and I as well as working with the event manager who had some last minute changes to the event schedule. We only had one slight hiccup with the father/daughter dance song playing early in the evening but we were able to skip through it to a new song. Overall very pleased with Dylan and DJ Chicago!
Nick was great all night. He kept everything on track in terms of timing and the music was fantastic. We could not have asked for a better experience.
Tom was absolutely fabulous!!!!
Thank you so much for being such an amazing part of our wedding night! We will definitely fill out the survey and write a review for you. We couldn't be happier with how everything worked out.
