If I could give more stars, I absolutely would. While we worked with all amazing vendors, it was Nick and the music he played that absolutely made our wedding the best day ever. To echo what everyone else said – he is truly AMAZING! Having amazing music and an epic dance party was the top priority for our wedding and Nick delivered. Not only was he accommodating with COVID rescheduling, but he was so on top of details and logistics each time. We barely had to say a few words before he seemed to fully understand what my husband and I did, and didn’t, want for the wedding. Throughout the evening he was checking in on us, asking if we needed anything, talked us through the whole process. We even had guests comment that the audio during the ceremony was the best they’d ever heard – they said it was totally clear and easy to hear/understand everyone. Once the dance floor started – it never stopped! I honestly felt like I was at a club or bar with the quality of the music, mixes, transitions, etc. Every song was one we loved and Nick knew exactly how to read the room, hype them up, bring them down, etc. Nick even took some music references from the Best Man and Maid of Honor speeches and incorporated them. He played songs I didn’t even know I wanted to dance to, that’s how well he understood what we, and our guests, wanted. We had so many friends say how great the music was, that it was the party of the year, that it was “the most fun they’ve ever had at a wedding, and they were sober”. Truly, Nick’s DJ skills made our wedding an unforgettable and incredible experience for all of us – and he’s so fun and personable!
Everyone has already said it but Nick was perfect from the first consultation. He knew exactly what DJ to pick for us from the start and Jordan slayed yes slayed the music. Everyone was raving on the music selection the next day! Thank you Nick and Jordan for making our night so amazing!
DJ Chicago did our wedding at the Newberry Library. Jared was an excellent DJ who read the room perfectly and played a great mix that got everybody up and on the dance floor. All of our guests raved about him after the fact. The lighting and sound system they provided for our ceremony in Washington Square Park as well as throughout the Newberry Library was excellent. We would highly recommend Jared at DJ Chicago to anyone looking for a professional and talented DJ.
DJ Chicago is truly the best and only DJ you need for your wedding! We learned about DJ Chicago when attending my friends wedding and having an amazing time dancing. I knew I wanted to consider them for our wedding as well. I am so glad we discovered them. Nick, the owner, was so easy to work with and the prices were very reasonable. Our DJ was John and he did an amazing job! All our favorite songs were played and people were dancing the entire night! Our guests had so much fun. Dancing at my wedding has been something I have been dreaming of for years and the music lived up to my dreams. I am so grateful to have found such a wonderful company and to have had John as our DJ. It was an epic dance party!
Gil was absolutely wonderful. He was so sweet. We were both just running around, and I remember trying to make my way over to him during cocktail hour and getting side tracked, so I really appreciated him just finding us and keeping us in the loop. He was perfect. The music was on point, and I think everyone appreciated the music during dinner and we had a great time dancing. He really kept up with the crowd and knew how to pick each song to keep the energy up. Africa was a great ending song to the night. All of our thanks and best wishes!
Nick is amazing, we cannot thank him enough for creating the perfect playlist to keep our guests dancing all night long! We highly recommend DJ Chicago to all of our friends! Amazing experience!!
Jordan was amazing to work with! He had our vibe down instantly and played exactly what we wanted, as well as what we needed. He even jumped on the mic for one song (because we love a good karaoke moment – and there were plenty that night). Our biggest compliment from him was ” I wish you guys lived in Chicago so we could be friends, haha!” But we can’t say enough good things! Thanks for making our day extra special.
We had Nick as our wedding DJ for our August 2021 wedding and he was AMAZING. He met with us virtually before the wedding to go over our song choices and listened carefully to our requests for the cocktail hour and reception. And boy did he nail the vibe! He took requests tirelessly all night and had the guests on the dance floor until the very end of the night. I would highly recommend booking Nick for your wedding!!!
I cannot recommend DJ Chicago enough!! I wish I could give them more than 5 stars. From our initial first call, Nick was amazing to work with. He was very organized and had great suggestions. Our DJ, Jared, was perfect! SO many people told me how great our DJ was which was so important to us. He listen to our requests and kept the dance floor going non-stop all night. I love DJ Chicago and am so grateful they made my wedding so fun!
I cannot recommend DJ Chicago enough!! Nick was wonderful from the first consultation, helping us move everything due to covid, and helping us plan our reception. We had Gil as our dj and both him and Nick helped guide us through the planning and accommodated all of our requests. For the actual day, Gil was ABSOLUTELY amazing!!!! He kept people on the dance floor all night (which is all we wanted) and people loved him! We had some timing issues with the venue and Gil was quick to help us make everything happen despite the hiccups. He gave us a great party which is all we could have asked for. I highly recommend DJ Chicago along with Nick and Gil. We couldn’t be happier with our choice.
We had Chris as our DJ and could not have had a better experience! He did a perfect job with timing ceremony music, doing introductions and playing a great set of music to keep the dance floor going. We had so much fun working with him and Nick throughout the planning and they couldn’t be better people to work with. They listened to our requests, but also provided great feedback given their experience which was incredibly helpful. I would highly recommend!
We had a great time with Jason DJ-ing at our wedding
Our venue recommended DJ Chicago to us, specifically Nick. He had a lot of experience djing at our venue which was important to us when choosing a DJ. We enjoyed all communications and interactions with DJ Chicago leading up to our big day. Nick allowed us to customize the playlist as much as we wanted. We got a lot of positive feedback about our DJ the night of our wedding as well as after. We’d recommend them to anyone in the Chicago area looking for a DJ.
Gil was the perfect DJ for our wedding. He was professional, friendly, and most importantly – played some great tunes that got everyone dancing! He played to the crowd, getting our family out on the dance floor for the “boomer hits”, and kept the young people on the dance floor until we had to stop. Thank you for doing what you do!
Wish we could give DJ Chicago and their team more than 5 stars! We got married on June 12, 2021 and used DJ Chicago for our music at both the ceremony, reception, AND afterparty. They made the whole planning process easy and smooth. Our DJ was Jordan – words cannot express how much we enjoyed having him at our wedding. He went above and beyond the whole time, music was amazing and the dance floor was packed throughout the night. We had an afterparty which Jordan worked as well, there was a piano and Jordan hoped right on singing and playing. Our guests LOVED it and have been raving about him ever since. We highly recommend using DJ Chicago and their team for ALL events, we will be using them moving forward for any event we host. Thank you Jordan and DJ Chicago team.
Gil was fantastic!! He was accommodating with all of our requests and showed a lot of patience (especially when my 5 year old nephew kept trying to make a speech!) He was so kind to everyone and I would absolutely recommend him and DJ Chicago.
Nick was an absolute blast! Throughout the entire process (song selection, Zoom calls, frantic emails) he went above and beyond to make our wedding special. Book with confidence, you won’t be disappointed. Even the most obscure requests (We had a Zelda cake cutting noise, the Red Wedding song, and you know he is a true expert when he can incorporate Hakuna Matata into a wedding reception!) were handled with professionalism. If I could give 6 stars, I would. Fantastic every step of the way.
Thank you so much for making our wedding reception PERFECT! Chad had fantastic recommendations, saw what our group was responding to, and made it so that the dance floor was packed all night! My husband and I can not recommend Chad and DJ-Chicago enough. We will definitely be recommending them to everyone we know and will be sure to use them again for an event. Thank you!
DJ-Chicago was wonderful to work with and created an amazing vibe for our wedding! We had a virtual consultation with our DJ, Chad, beforehand to go over all the details and get an insight into our musical tastes, must-plays, do-not-plays, and everything in between. Chad took that information and created an amazing playlist for us! Chad was professional, courteous, and flexible throughout the evening as we had last minute music changes. Couldn’t have asked for a better time!
Nick was amazing! He played a whole variety of songs which was key for our wedding since half of my family is from Colombia! After the wedding everyone kept telling me “your dj was really good!” or “the dj killed it!” Music was of high importance to us when searching for DJ’s. When we met Nick we knew we could not go wrong!
|Wow. Nick was incredible. He was so fun to work with throughout the process and made the reception unforgettable. I have never seen so much dancing at a wedding, and every song was a lead up to the next amazing song. The energy grew all night because of his mad skill. I want to have another event just so I can hire Nick to come DJ. I will be recommending him forever to anyone getting married in the area. The night flew by, and Nick perfectly coordinated everything. I'm still in awe of how perfect everything was and how wonderful Nick is. I have so many moments that I could write about that give me goosebumps because of the songs and energy he pumped into the reception. Thank you doesn't cover it, but it is a start. THANKS, NICK!|
NICK WAS THE BEST!!! Nick Dj'ed our wedding about a month ago and people are still talking about how much fun they had dancing that night- People who never dance were even on the dance floor that night! Nick was so easy to work with throughout the whole planning process. Bc we didn't want to pick every song on the playlist, he asked us some general questions of what we would like to play (songs, genres, etc) and what we didn't want to be played. He blended all the different types of music well and the dance floor was packed the whole night. Throughout the whole reception, Nick kept checking in with us to let us know what was going to happen next so that we were ready for it. Our guests had commented that we were so prepared for everything that night and it was all thanks to Nick! We cant't thank you enough for making our wedding one hell of a party that we will never forget! Go White Sox!
Nick was amazing. His suggestions for timing were an enormous help. We gave him very little to work with in the way of music selection and he was able to feed off the guests and keep the dance floor rocking all night!
We were very happy with our DJ Jason. Everything went great. We will definitely keep you in mind for future events. Thank you so much!
Absolutely wonderful. Chris responded immediately to unexpected requests (such as Clemson fight song) and after getting a feel for the crowd, kept everyone singing and dancing along. He even helped with our decorations after he had set up. Thank you so much for making the surprise party work so well!!
Amazing! Truly have nothing bad to say. We had Nick (the General Manager) for our wedding on 11/2/19. He was so kind from start to finish of the process. He was willing to meet later at night to accommodate our schedules and was super thoughtful in conversations to figure out exactly what we wanted for the music at our wedding. He was also super responsive to emails throughout the process. On the night of - he was awesome. We wanted to include a bunch of different kinds of music for our two families and Nick played a perfect blend of music throughout the night. All of our guests loved him and the dance floor was completely packed for the entire night. We also had an issue with the venue’s microphone - they had not let Nick use his own equipment. Nick immediately came to us and apologized even though it was not his fault, and then replaced the mic with his own for the rest of the night. Nick/DJ Chicago is GREAT, highly recommend.
Chris was amazing! The planning was easy and fun, and he was incredible at the wedding. He was clearly paying attention to what was going on and adapted to it. When he heard someone mention a meaningful song during a toast, he played the song next. It was beautiful and made the moment so much more special. Thank you Chris!
Jared was awesome. Helped coordinate and was decisive when he needed to be, never made the wedding about him (I.e. never stood out when he shouldn't have), amazing job denying requests that we didn't want to be played, and mixed to match the dancefloor really well. Compliments not just from me and my wife but from so many guests as well.
Chad was great! We hope to have him back in 2021.
I cannot recommend DJ-Chicago highly enough. His entire performance and music selection was picture perfect the entire night and the dance floor was packed throughout, which is what Jenn and I wanted. He cued in the ceremony songs perfectly as well, and was a consummate professional throughout the evening.
We had the BEST time at our wedding! Jordan played such fun music that our dance floor was full the entire time. Nick was also great to work with and got us all set up and organized for our big day. We would certainly recommend DJ Chicago to anyone in need of DJ services!
Neda was awesome, very professional and very sweet. At the end of her gig, staff members at the venue start asking for her contact info because they want to book her in the future.
We loved Gil!
We would STRONGLY recommend Nick to anyone having a wedding. Nick made us feel comfortable the minute we walked into his office and was able to gauge our music style with very little direction. Nick took control and made our dance floor one of the best I’ve ever seen.
Chad was awesome!!!
Did a great job! Couldn't ask for a better wedding DJ. I had so much fun.
Chris was great! Very accommodating and everyone had a blast getting to sing karaoke.
Gil was fantastic! Kept the dance floor packed until the end. He also made sure to check in with us (bride & groom) throughout the night to make sure we were happy with the music selections. It was very important for us that our guests have fun and thanks to Gil and DJ- Chicago, our guests had a great time. Definitely recommend them for all your DJ needs.
Chad was fantastic!! We loved what he played and have received SO MANY compliments about him. He did amazing in very single way and we could not be happier! There isn’t a single thing more we could have asked of him or asked him to do differently. It was perfect! Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to others. 10/10 for everything. Thank you, Chad!!!
Awesome work! We love you guys!
John did a fantastic job on the night. He dealt brilliantly with the challenging circumstances when a sudden downpour meant the ceremony needed to be moved inside. We really appreciated the way in which he worked closely with Amanda and our other vendors to ensure the ceremony could go ahead as close to on-time as possible, and that everyone could hear the whole service in our new location. His playlist for dinner was perfect - so many friends and relatives commented on this, and visibly enjoyed it during the meal. John also did a professional job introducing each of the speakers. Perhaps we could have coordinated between us all to start the speeches earlier (time really flew by after the ceremony started a little late), but people were enjoying themselves throughout. While our dance party was cut a little short because of knock-on delays, John did a great job keeping people on the floor and having a great time. Thanks again!
Wonderfully done and very professional!
My husband and I cannot say enough good things about our wedding DJ, Chris. The introductions and flow the reception went smoothly and he kept the dance floor packed all night. He handled some of our last minute changes with no problem. I was really impressed by his adaptability. For example, it came up during our ceremony about how much I love show tunes. This is something I did not mention at our DJ meeting because, while I love them, I couldn't think of many wedding-appropriate broadway songs. I was so pleasantly surprised to hear him playing an upbeat song from RENT during our cocktail hour - it worked perfectly and was something I never would have thought of myself. We received a ton of compliments on our music all night. Chris did an awesome job and Nick and the rest of the DJ-Chicago crew were super easy to work with throughout the entire planning process. Thanks so much!
Nick and DJ Chicago were great to work with! I would highly recommend them to anyone else to use if they need a DJ.
|Nick was absolutely amazing. From the day we met Nick until our wedding day, Nick answered every question we had and gave us a lot of suggestions! He was very professional on the day of the wedding and made sure we and our guests were having the best time. He listened to exactly what we asked and threw in some of his own ideas as well. My sister used DJ CHICAGO for her wedding, and I knew we had to as well. Nick kept the party moving all night! Great time!|
Gil was awesome! Very wonderful to work with and our dance floor was crowded the entire night. We had a great time! We gave Gil a massive list of songs, and the only regret was that there wasn't enough time in the evening to play all of them!
Chris was phenomenal! In our first meeting with Chris, we explained the type of music we like, and he immediately understood our style and aesthetic. The music at the wedding was perfect, many of our guests complimented Chris after the wedding saying the music was lively and got everyone to the dance floor. We appreciated that Chris was communicative with us throughout the event as well, he would come to us to tell us how much time we had and asked if there was anything we wanted to hear in the remaining time. I highly recommend Chris and DJ Chicago!
Chris did a terrific job making sure our wedding, speeches, and music went great. He was really thoughtful of how things went.
