We got married just last night and I couldn’t wait to write this review. Nick was absolutely amazing; he was so detail oriented and flexible, a true pro. We got so many compliments on our music and the dance floor was packed literally the entire night. Thank you DJ Chicago for an amazing experience and the best wedding day we could have asked for!
Always has been and will continue to be my favorite DJ company to refer as a venue manager (Warwick Allerton Hotel) or a wedding planner! We worked with Nick a few times, Sam, and last weekend with Gil – each one pay special attention to their client needs also while including everyone at the wedding, and always leave the dance floor – FULL!!!! Will continue to refer them as much as I can!
Thanks, DJ Chicago
Gil was our DJ for our recent wedding and was amazing!! He is so kind and made sure everything was going according to plan for the day. Working with him and Nick from the beginning was the best as well. Our prep call was very organized and they even put together a timeline to help us plan our reception. My husband is Albanian so we had playlists of certain songs and Nick and Gil made sure everything was played correctly. Our guests were dancing all night and the dance floor was never empty. Thank you Gil for making our night the best!!
We had so so much fun at our wedding, thanks in large part to Gil from DJ Chicago!! He kept the dance floor packed from start to finish and even my parents friends loved his song choices. He absolutely crushed it and we cannot thank him enough.
Phenomenal!! Gil was our day of DJ and absolutely crushed it. The dance floor was the most important thing to us and it was packed from start to finish. He played music that got people of all ages and tastes out and didn’t miss once. We could not have asked for a better DJ and have gotten so many comments from guests raving about the incredible job that Gil did!
Nick and Chad were so great to work with. Nick was so great at finding a specific DJ to fit our vibe as a couple. Chad kept our dance floor going for 3.5 hours. We got so many compliments that our wedding dance floor was the most fun people have had at any wedding!! Highly recommend DJ Chicago
We had DJ Chicago DJ our recent wedding, and they did an AMAZING job! From the start, Nick was kind, professional, and listened to what we wanted for our wedding. Sam, our DJ, was incredible!! He kept the party going all night long and the dancefloor was packed!
Nick was absolutely fantastic (as we knew he would be!). After our first planning meeting with Nick, we looked at each other and said ok well at least that’s one thing we don’t have to worry about. And wow was that true! We told Nick we wanted a fun uplifting dance-filled night and that’s exactly what Nick gave us. All of our guests still talk about how awesome of a DJ we had and how the music was so on point. We had a really cute outdoor area for guests to mingle that I had been excited for. One that night, I think maybe 5 people went out there. We didn’t even go out there! Nick was such a pleasure to work with and we can’t say thank you enough to him for making our dance floor the place to be!
Nick was a fabulous DJ who helped us set up the events and “flow” of our wedding in such a way that EVERYBODY started dancing as soon as the music came on! He was easy to work with, offered great recommendations, took our songs into consideration, and made sure the ceremony went off without a hitch. I can’t recommend him enough.
Chad was our DJ and he killed it! While meeting with Chad prior to the wedding, we told him that our one goal was to have our dance floor packed all night and that is EXACTLY what he did. He played a great selection of music and kept the party going literally all night! So many guests came up to my husband and I throughout the night sharing how amazing the DJ was. THANK YOU NICK & CHAD!
Nick at DJ Chicago was awesome! He was super communicative during the planning process when we inquired with him and in the weeks leading up to the event. AND HE WAS AWESOME! All of the music played and the transitions and annoucements were impeccable. He kept the dance floor moving all night long!! We HIGHLY recommend DJ Chicago.
We worked with DJ Nick from DJ Chicago for our wedding and we are SO glad to have had him as a part of our favorite day! After attending two weddings that Nick DJ’d, we knew we HAD to have him at our wedding!! When Nick is the DJ, everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) is on the dance floor all night long! He knows how to read the room and keep the party going!
Nick was so responsive and easy to work with throughout the entire planning process. We had two extensive zoom calls prior to the wedding and Nick made sure to cover every single detail, and even made some great suggestions on timeline and song choices. On the day of, Nick helped keep things moving along on time and worked seamlessly with our other vendors and our venue. I would recommend this company, and DJ Nick especially, to anyone in need of a DJ!
I loved working with DJ Chicago. They were recommended by our venue for our wedding, for good reason. The vibes were immaculate. I had a lot of extended family in from out of town and they danced until they dropped, literally. Got lots of positive feedback from our guests and the music was just absolutely perfect. Couldn’t have been happier!
Jared was an amazing DJ, and our pre-wedding meeting with him and Nick was great. I appreciated their system for getting all your must plays and do not plays. Jared played a great selection of music throughout the night and was able to read the room really well. My stepmom still loves to say “The food was good, but the DJ was great.” Would highly recommend!
DJ Chicago and our DJ, Gil, was so great and easy to work with! They were professional, easy to work with and responsive as we went through the planning process. Would 100% recommend DJ Chicago and Gil for your wedding or event!
DJ Chicago was AMAZING, we had Gil as our DJ and he was incredible, we’re still receiving compliments about how great the music was and guests are asking for his contact info for their own families. Aside from the excellent emceeing, our dance floor was going the whole night, we gave Gil a playlist of songs we’d like played and he mixed them in perfectly. Cannot recommend DJ Chicago enough!
Chad was such an AMAZING wedding DJ. We had so much fun dancing the night away and he made sure to keep everyone on the dance floor all night long. EXACTLY what we wanted. Everything from start to finish was so easy thanks to their team. 100% would recommend them for weddings and parties. THANK YOU!
Gil from DJ Chicago DJ’d our wedding last Saturday and he was such a blast to work with. We had an introductory call with Nick and Gil and went over our “must have” songs and “Do Not Play” list. We had a great variety of music due to different age/ethnic demographics at our wedding. Gil was fabulous at reading the room and the dance floor was packed ALL night.
Nick with DJ Chicago was AMAZING to work with! He was so responsive and super helpful in the planning process. At the wedding he checked in with us to make sure everything was smooth and everything went off without a hitch. Our dance floor was INCREDIBLE. Several guests said it was one of the best dance floors they’d seen and it was banger after banger. We had such a blast and Nick with DJ Chicago was a huge part of our perfect day!
Nick was absolutely amazing as our wedding DJ! We had multiple people tell us it was the best wedding playlist they’ve heard and the dance floor was packed all night (even with people who usually don’t dance). Not to mention Nick made all the planning incredibly easy and stress-free. If you are considering DJ Chicago for your wedding ceremony or reception no need to think twice!
Nick was nothing shy of amazing to work with throughout the entire planning process. Extremely flexible, patient and nice to work with. We had him DJ our wedding and he put together the perfect mix of music which kept the dance floor packed the entire night. I would highly recommend using DJ Chicago, you’ll love it!
Nick was amazing to work with from day 1! Jason was amazing at our reception and kept the dance floor full all night long. He was amazing at reading the crowd while keeping everything appropriate for everyone!
My husband and I hired Nick from DJ Chicago for our December wedding and we couldn’t be happier with this choice! Nick nailed every aspect of being a DJ: he was a great MC and kept things moving, he did a great job at drawing in people of all ages to the dance floor, and he knew when the crowd was loving a song versus when to fade it early. Music was one of the most important aspects of our wedding day, and we had songs that we absolutely had to hear, songs we would like to hear, and songs we did not want to play at all. Nick did a great job respecting these choices while weaving in songs we hadn’t considered, all of which were a huge hit! Our family and friends are still raving to us about how they’ve never seen a dance floor so packed from start to finish. We can’t recommend DJ Chicago enough!
DJ Chicago provided the music and sound system services for our wedding at Loft on Lake in Chicago, and their team was superb! Nick was fun and easy to work with to manage everything, and our DJ at the wedding, Gil was so great! We heard nothing but rave reviews from all of our guests. Gil blended in, kept the dance floor going, and was very friendly with us and our guests. Again, DJ Chicago had a fantastic team and their services were the perfect match for our wedding. Highly recommend for your wedding!
10/10 recommend! If you are looking for a DJ that not only honors your “song wish-list”, reads the crowd for what will be an appropriate song choice, is a great host and speaker, AND is professional and graceful… look no further. We worked with Nick for our wedding and he truly helped in making it a night to remember. When I say people were on the dance floor all night… people were on the dance floor ALL NIGHT.
I cannot recommend DJ-Chicago enough and highly suggest you use them for whatever event you are planning.
Definitely recommend booking Nick and his team for any of your DJ needs! They know exactly what music to play to keep the party going!
Nick and Chad S were FANTASTIC to work with. Nick was great from the get go — responsive and helpful and super good vibes. Leading up to the event, we communicated about our music preferences and general direction we wanted the music to go during cocktail hour, dinner, and the reception. Even with a few last minute timeline changes, DJ-Chicago nailed it. Chad S was our DJ on our wedding day. He was professional and a very talented DJ. Chad nailed the cues and fades on our grand entrance and our first dance. Then during the reception, he kept the dance floor packed and did a lot of really nice fades and played some of the original samples of songs, which was cool! Chad S made it a party, not just a wedding!
DJ Chicago was amazing to work with!! We got soo many compliments about the DJ (Jason) from our wedding guests. He kept the guests and us dancing all night long on the dance floor. They ask you what songs you want for the key moments (walk down aisle, first dance, father/daughter dance, mother/son dance, last song, etc.) and provide examples if you’re unsure about what song to use (they recommended “Man I feel like a women” by Shania Twain for the bouquet toss and it was a hit!) I cant recommend them more!
DJ-Chicago really is best in class. From start to finish they were so on top of everything. My wife and I are rather indecisive and they were so accommodating and flexible with all of our last minute requests and changes. A DJ really can make or break your wedding…in our case, Gil from DJ Chicago made our reception. Dance floor was crowded all night. Would highly recommend using their services, they will not disappoint.
Good music was a top priority in wedding planning for us, and DJ Chicago knocked it out of the park. Our venue and planner told us to book Nick & his crew and said they were the best in Chicago. I’m so glad they were available! The entire process leading up to the wedding was smooth and easy. My now husband had for years been compiling a playlist for cocktail hour / dancing, and Nick & Jordan (who DJ’ed our wedding) were enthusiastic to put together playlists that fit our tastes and vibe. Jordan also read the energy and crowd well and added in some songs of his choosing that worked perfectly. Many friends told us our wedding had the best playlist and fullest dance floor they’d ever seen. Thank you Jordan & Nick for making our day so special!
We are so glad we hired DJ-Chicago for our wedding! Nick was so easy to work with leading up to the wedding. Chad ended up being our DJ and he exceeded our expectations! I was so nervous that people wouldn’t be dancing but he did such a phenomenal job that many people didn’t leave the dance floor all night. Our reception was such a blast all thanks to Chad and DJ-Chicago. Hire them!!!
We got married in October 2022. Working with Nick was an absolute breeze. We had a brief Zoom meeting a month before the wedding where we shared our must plays, do-not-plays, and shared a Spotify playlist of a few songs we liked as suggestions and he was super receptive. He has a clear outline of what songs are needed besides the obvious ones like first dance (ex. Processional song, recessional song, entrance to reception song etc.) and has some great suggestions for songs if we didn’t have one that came to mind.
Day-of, Nick was incredibly professional and kind and did an excellent job with the songs, announcements, and transitions. Everyone was out dancing the whole reception and he nailed all of the names with pronunciation. 10/10 would highly recommend booking with DJ-Chicago and specifically Nick!
We hired DJ-Chicago for our wedding and they did a perfect job. Nick walked us through all the organizational questions and helped us set a schedule and playlist/style for the music. The DJ for the event, Jason, was prompt and created a fun atmosphere for the entire evening, adjusting when necessary to keep everyone entertained. Overall, our interactions with DJ-Chicago were universally positive and we highly recommend them!
DJ-Chicago tied for our favorite vendor for our October 2022 wedding! Everything from our first inquiry to the end of the wedding was top-notch service. Personally, I didn’t see a reason to spend more on a $$$ or $$$$ DJ, this was a category I wanted to stay affordable on. I’m so happy we chose DJ-Chicago (wedding websites labeled as $$) which was amazing quality for the very reasonable price! Cannot recommend these guys enough! Owner Nick was so professional and organized, very flexible even the 1-2 weeks before our wedding when speeches were still very up in the air! DJ on the day of our wedding was Chad who we truly LOVED both as a person and as a DJ, he couldn’t be a nicer guy and perfectly mixed our song requests with his choices that kept the party going! Highly recommend hiring DJ-Chicago, you won’t regret it!!
So so glad we were fortunate enough to have Nick DJ our wedding. Book these guys now. From the prep through the night itself, everything was handled perfectly with 0 stress. On the night itself, Nick kept the entire evening running smoothly and on time. Then the music and dancing were incredible – the dance floor was packed with both young and old having the time of their lives. We received countless compliments about the DJ, specifically saying this was the funnest wedding they had EVER been to. Highest recommendation for these guys!
Excellent and very professional DJ service! Highly recommend! They had everyone dancing the night away!
From the start, working with DJ-Chicago was as easy as could be. Everyone was responsive, kind, and clearly excited to be a part of our wedding team. We were so impressed with how naturally our DJ, Gil, worked with the Club’s staff to manage the night, and his talent for keeping the dance floor partying goes without saying – we literally danced the entire night! One highlight of how great he made the event: we were completely surprised to see he had coordinated lights to match the mix our cousins put together for their dance, which set the excited tone for the rest of the reception. He also did a great job of balancing song requests while staying true to the atmosphere we wanted for the night. Our friends and family keep telling us that it was the most fun they have had in a long time. Thank you Gil and DJ-Chicago for keeping the process easy, fun, and true to our dream night!
Hiring DJ-Chicago for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding! Nick was so friendly and easy going from the initial phone call to the day of the event. He was our DJ for the night and didn’t complain once about our long list of song requests. 🙂 He did such an awesome job mixing our requests in with his own song suggestions to the point where our dance floor was packed until the very last song! He was a pleasure to work with and we cannot recommend him & DJ Chicago enough!
We could not have been happier with Gil at DJ Chicago! As big partiers, we knew the DJ was one of the most critical decisions of the wedding. Gil did NOT let us down. He and Nick from DJ Chicago were very professional and devoted a lot of time to figuring out the vibe and style we wanted for our wedding. Gil was punctual and very easy to work with. Our dance floor was completely packed all night long! I highly recommend DJ Chicago for your event!
Jason and Nick were directly responsible for the success of our wedding. They were extremely helpful and professional and made the event perfect. Thanks again.
Talk about the best music ever!! Our wedding was on 9/23/22 and Nick was our DJ. From the first inquiry to the end of the wedding night, Nick was great at communication and so kind. From the ceremony, to cocktail hour, to reception introductions, to dinner classics, to first dances, to partying until the end of the night… WOW he killed it! Everything was so smooth and we received so many compliments after the wedding. The dance floor was packed the entire night. We highly recommend Nick! He is great at what he does and very professional. Thank you again, Nick!!
The DJ-Chicago team was great from day one helping us plan and prepare for our wedding. Our DJ, John, was awesome! He was very kind and communicative, making sure that our ceremony and reception went just as we had planned. The dance floor was full all night and he did a great job with the playlist. Wouldn’t change a thing.
DJ Nick was awesome!! We met with Nick a month or so before our wedding to talk about the day and he was very kind and thorough. On my wedding day he would come and check in on us every so often and let us know what was coming next in the schedule. When we met with Nick a month before the wedding, we didn’t give him a ton of direction on what music to play. Nick was able to curate a playlist that was so perfect that our guests asked if my wife and I had specifically given him a list of songs to play.
Nick kept the dance floor going all night and a few of my relatives shirts were completely soaked from dancing from the first dance to the last song. DJ Nick is a perfect choice for your wedding, I cannot recommend him enough
Nick was great to work with and their prices are reasonable. We had Gil as our DJ on our wedding night on 9/10/22 and I cannot say enough good things about him. The dance floor was packed the whole night. I’ve had so many people tell me already how much they loved our DJ. I also love how Gil was keeping me and my husband up to date on when we were going to do things such as the first dance, speeches, father daughter dance. He constantly made sure we were ok with everything. I am so happy I booked with DJ Chicago.
Chad was everything we could have dreamed of and more for a DJ. Not only was he incredibly kind, professional and prompt but his personality was delightful and the music was exactly what we envisioned. We had guests raving to us constantly about the music, and my Personal favorite was how well he transitioned between each song.
DJ-Chicago was the best DJ choice we could have made for our wedding! From the planning call with Nick to the month out meeting with Nick and our DJ Chad, everything was so organized, detailed, and you can tell these guys really know what they’re doing. DJ Chad nailed every bit of the night perfectly. He started with our ceremony music which we had shared a playlist for, and it was just what we’d hoped for. Then the cocktail hour and dinner vibe was perfect. Finally, the dance floor song choices were a perfect mix of everything- we were amazed at how many people danced the whole night and stayed until the final song! Would 10/10 recommend!!
Amazing is an understatement. Nick was awesome and made for an unforgettable evening. We couldn’t leave the dance floor because every song was a banger and we all had a blast! Everyone had so much fun and Nick really listened to the vibe we were going for and was the perfect DJ! I highly recommend! All of our guests loved him! Thank you Nick!
It’s been a week since our wedding day, and we still have friends telling us how much they love our DJ (Gil)! From the intro call to the planning call, Nick asked thoughtful questions to understand us as a couple, and he provided helpful prompts that guided us to think through the timeline and song choices. After laughing through the planning call with both Nick and Gil, we knew we were in good hands. On the wedding day, Gil arrived early to set up, worked closely with our venue (LM Studio) to keep us on track of the timeline, and checked in with us throughout the night to make sure that we know what’s happening next. He made the whole night FUN and stress-free. Gil promised that he would pack the dance floor, and he absolutely delivered! Everyone had so much fun that we ended up adding another half hour!
We highly recommend DJ-Chicago!
We had DJ Chicago DJ our Wedding a few weeks ago, and we are so glad we did! Nick made it super easy to plan, and Gil Was our DJ come the actual day. Nick gave me the idea to do a personalized playlist with our style music to be played quietly during dinner (romantic indie/alternative) so that we could have a little bit our our taste infused without making people dance to it. I loved it! Then we gave Gil free rein of what to play to make sure people were dancing- and he did! He was so awesome with reading the room to see what to choose next, and by the end of the night my guests were sad for the party to be over. I am so glad I used DJ Chicago, and I would highly recommend them for your wedding!
Gil was amazing. He knew exactly what to play and when to play it. He read the room and timed the songs we requested impeccably. We could not be happier with our experience. Thank you Gil and DJ Chicago! We had SO much fun at our wedding and our guests did too!
