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...
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...
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...
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.
Jared was amazing! Professional and awesome with keeping the music going and the selection.
Nick - Thank you for being the DJ for Beth and I’s wedding. You did an awesome job from the start of our Ceremony to the last song of the night. We have a received nothing but compliments on how great the playlist was, while sticking to our do not plays. Beth and I will be sure to recommend you and the DJ-CHICAGO crew for other events. Thank you again for helping make Beth and I’s wedding one to remember
Chad was awesome! He was very professional, kind, and did a great job all night long. He checked in with me once to see if we wanted a slow song, or to keep the energy up, and I appreciated that he took the time to check in and that he was perceptive to the energy of the room while also making sure we were happy. Our dance company performance, parent dances, and choreographed first dance went off without a hitch! Thanks so much for putting us in good hands and for making our wedding reception an absolute blast. Thank you!!!
I can't say enough good things about Nick at DJ-Chicago. Everything about the night was perfect. He had the perfect mix of music through his ability to read the room, but stick to the style of music that we requested. I will definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a DJ for their events.
Jared was great. You could tell he really enjoys his job! We will definitely use DJ Chicago again in the future.
Thank you Chad for a great evening! Our attendees had an awesome time on the dance floor, and I appreciate your flexibility and accommodations of song requests!
WE LOVED NICK! I can’t say this enough, from the booking process to everything day of he was wonderful and I couldn’t ask for more. He had everyone dancing all night and took initiative to make smart choices when setting up which made our day just that much less stressful. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.
DJ Chad lived up to his hype! We would totally hire him again and were super impressed with his announcements and setup.
John was so great on Saturday! He did an amazing job and played what we wanted :)
It was great! Jared did an amazing job!
Amazing job! We’ve gotten so many compliments on the music and how it was the best wedding they have ever been too! We will be recommending DJ Chicago to everyone we know looking for a Dj for their event.
Start to finish we couldn’t have been happier. When we went off script, he adjusted seamlessly and everything kept going smoothly! Thanks Chris!
A perfect 10 !! Nick always does a great job for us. Thank you!!
Gil was great ! He was so accommodating. He communicated with us throughout the whole night. He was on top of everything and kept everything running smoothly. We can’t thank him enough !
John did a great job at trying to keep us on our schedule-which we definitely needed! You guys were such a pleasure to work with, and appreciate all of the help you gave us planning and choosing the right music.
We can not thank you enough for KILLING it at our wedding. We had a blast and people are still telling us we had the BEST music.
Nick was so helpful for every part of the wedding. We had a destination wedding in Chicago so we just had to go off of reviews for many of our vendors. I'm so happy we went with DJ-Chicago for the ceremony and reception.We didn't know exactly what type of music we wanted playing at the reception, but we knew we wanted our guests to dance the night away. He helped us select some of our favorite songs and he took it from there. The dance floor was full the whole night. He really knows how to read a room. I also needed his help to coordinate a groom's cake surprise for my husband. He handled it perfectly and didn't let the surprise slip. I...
Chad was phenomenal— both my parents could not stop talking about how thrilled they were by his ability to keep the dance floor packed at all times. When the overly detailed playlist I originally chose proved not so crowd pleasing Chad completely saved the day.
DJ-Chicago did an amazing job. Our planning meeting with him was super easy and effective, and he killed it the night of our wedding. Our biggest concern going into our big day was that we were not going to have people on the dance floor...Well thanks to Nick and his music that was not a problem. All night long it was one constant party and we could not be more grateful and happy with Nick and DJ-Chicago. I would recommend them 100% of the time to anyone looking for a DJ for a wedding or any other event.
Honestly, Claire and I cannot say enough about how amazing everything was. You nailed the music, the dance floor didn't stop for almost three hours! We appreciated how you kept us informed throughout and how nice in general you are. Thank you so much for helping us have the best day ever.
Nick from DJ Chicago honestly was an integral part of making our March 16, 2019 wedding unbelievable. From the first time that we met with Nick, he was organized and took the time to understand our vision for the wedding. He created an awesome timeline, and took some funky requests, including a search for an Irish reel. I knew we were in great hands leading up to our wedding. He dealt with some last minute changes with grace and poise, and kept the party going the whole night!!! Our dance floor was truly so full that people were dancing on the carpet beside it, and I attribute it to Nick's keen ability to keep the party flowing through song...
He did amazing!
Mark was amazing! He hit the nail on the head with the music selection knowing what a diverse and eclectic group we were. The boss was more than pleased with him as were all of in the party.
Absolutely amazing job DJing our wedding in December. We got compliments all night and many after the event on the selection of music that kept people on the dance floor the entire night! Also, great to work with leading up to the event as well!
Mark did an amazing job and was GREAT to work with!
There are no words that can fully express how much fun everyone had. The music was amazing, the transitions were on point, and all the guests commented on how great the DJ was.
Couldn't be happier with DJ Chicago! We had so so so much fun working with you. You made the process so easy. You absolutely CRUSHED IT at the wedding and I can't even count the amount of guests who told us the same. Thank you so very much!!! Let's do it again!
Nick was fantastic!! We had so many people tell us that the music was great!! He also helped us stay on track with our timeline and made great suggestions for the flow of our event. After our planning meeting, we felt extremely at ease and fully trusted Nick to handle our big day!!
Yes, absolutely! Nick did a wonderful job!
Nick was great. He quickly adjusted every time we change something up the night of. He had everyone dancing! Played exactly what we asked. He was amazing! If I again or anyone I know needs a dj, Nick no question.
John was amazing!! I didn't want to leave the dance floor!!!! John and Nick were wonderful with the planning and made us feel great every step of the way. We appreciate you both taking the time to get to know us and what we like. At the wedding, John made us feel very comfortable and he engaged with us every step of the way. The music was just what we wanted and needed when we needed it. Thank you again for making our day spectacular!!
Every single person at my wedding came to congratulate me on hiring the best DJ. Song selections were ideal. Nick was kind, professional, and allowed me to really enjoy myself.
We hired DJ-Chicago for our wedding and Nick was absolutely amazing. He was completely on point with everything we asked and very responsive from when we first met with him to the day of our wedding. He did a great job of consulting us during the reception without interrupting anything. His playlist was phenomenal. I cannot recommend DJ-Chicago enough. Nick really helped make our wedding day perfect.
Gil was amazing, he was friendly intentional, helpful and kept everyone dancing. We had many people comment on how great he was! Thanks guys
I wanted to let you know how much we appreciated having you DJ our wedding. As I write this, Jordan and I are driving back from a friends wedding and, having seen the other “experiences” some DJs provide their clients, we’re incredibly thankful we were in your hands. It wasn’t just your awesome music selection and adapting it to our tastes, but you made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. This is something that not every DJ can do, as we’ve unfortunately witnessed. Plus, you totally ran with our crazy idea to get people on the dance floor before they even ate, and we think it went better than we could have hoped!! I can...
Your company made this process super easy/non-stressful and Gil did an AMAZING job. Choosing you as our DJ Vendor was the best decision we made. We are beyond happy with your services and will highly recommend you to everyone we know. Thank you again for helping us create an unforgettable night.
Nick was the DJ of our wedding on Friday and he was amazing!! From our first meeting to planning out both our ceremony music and dance music, he was perfect! He even made us a custom song by splicing two songs together for our first dance and sent it to us so we could practice our choreography before our wedding day. On the day of our wedding he was flexible about last minute changes, which helped make everything so smooth! One of our guests thought the ceremony music was live because of the quality of his sound system. During the dance portion of the evening he was really good at reading the crowd and changing songs up to keep everyone on...
James was awesome! He gave us everything we wanted when it came to music selections and offered his expertise to make the night perfect. We highly recommend!
Nick is AMAZING! Literally the only real direction we gave him regarding music for our wedding was that we are 80s babies. He played a fantastic set and can really read a crowd. We had guests dancing the WHOLE NIGHT ;)!!
We love Gil!!!! He was so easy to work with and kept a smile on his face the whole time. His music selection was perfect and his transitions were flawless. We also had a last-minute musical performance and he handled it like a total pro--completely calm, cool, and collected at all times. Would definitely recommend him in the future!
Nick blew away our expectations with our wedding. Introductions were great and the music was even better. We had multiple guests come up to us and tell us how amazing the DJ was. Highly, highly recommend!
We were so happy with every aspect of the reception. You coordinated a great event, and we have received many compliments about the music and the dancing.
Gil was beyond amazing at the wedding! He played hit after hit!! Very professional and a warm presence to be around. I would highly recommend anyone to use him!!
I cannot emphasize enough how absolutely fantastic DJ Nick was for our wedding. The most consistent feedback we got from our guests during and after the wedding reception was how much of a blast dancing was, and that is all credit to DJ Nick. He completely understood our vibe, and made sure the dance floor was packed the entire night. He also made sure every single request of ours was heeded, and he very clearly had put in the preparation time to make sure the night went as planned. We had a number of unique situations with our venue layout and order of events, and DJ Nick handled everything seamlessly. He kept everything and everyone on...
DJ-ed my wedding and did not disappoint! Chad nailed it on our song selections for the processional, entrance, etc, and almost everyone made it out on the dance floor at some point. We didn't have any hard requests on songs and mainly gave him genres we wanted for different points in the night (jazz/instrumental before the ceremony, Sinatra during cocktail hour), and Chad created an amazing playlist. He read the room and kept the party going no matter how many people were dancing. Many of our guests told me how much they loved the music. Thanks Chad, Nick and the DJ Chicago team!
John was great. All of our guests loved the music selection (a little bit older music in the first part of the night and more modern music for the younger guests later on). All of the announcements were great and John checked in with us toward the end to make sure we heard everything we wanted. He also interacted with other vendors and the venue coordinator so well to help make sure our night was perfect. Nick was awesome in helping coordinate things leading up to the wedding, especially since we were from out of town and couldn't meet in person. You made us feel like everything would be taken care of. The whole DJ Chicago staff was...
Nick was the best. We couldn't have asked for anymore. We had some hiccups with our party bus transport, and the mood of the wedding was tipping downwards...but then when the reception and Nick took over, it completely flipped to the positive. We had multiple guests tell us how they never danced so much at a wedding, and that the DJ was great and his music selection was on point. Our dance floor couldn't handle the amount of people dancing the entire night. Will recommend his services to others moving forward.
Nick was fantastic! He was early, professional, and had great customer service. Also such a nice guy. We'll definitely hire Nick again for our next Chicago event.
We absolutely loved Chad!!! He killed it all night. Our dance floor was always crowded and he even threw in some Britney Spears because of my man of honor speech. He was awesome! 10 plus stars in our book! Thanks again for everything!
Jared was amazing! He hardly ever talked and just kept the tunes coming, which is exactly what we wanted! Our guests can't stop talking about how much fun our wedding was and we have Jared to thank for that. He made our wedding the party of the year, and something our friends and family will be talking about for the rest of our lives. He played the music we specifically requested, took requests from our guests, and played songs everyone loved. We were able to Skype with Jared before the wedding to go over details (song selections, name pronunciation, etc.) and that was the perfect way to ensure the night flowed smoothly. We could not be...
Dj Mark was absolutely amazing. We had so many compliments on the music selection. One of our goals was to not have an empty dance floor and he helped tp meet our goal. Thanks a lot!
Chris was outstanding.
Jared was great. He played exactly the style of music that we asked for and everyone had a great time. Thank you!
Nick was absolutely instrumental in making our wedding perfect. After each meeting, we felt assured and excited about the upcoming wedding. His ability to read the crowd and take our music taste into consideration kept people on the dance floor all night. We would strongly recommend for anyone to use DJ Chicago for their event.
You were phenomenal! We are so happy with our choice to have you DJ our wedding. I didn’t leave the dance floor all night and I’ve heard so many times from every guest that it was the best party they’ve ever been to. The music was perfect and exactly what we wanted. I will be more than happy to take your survey. We LOVE DJ Chicago!!!
Extremely happy with my experience! Again, Pat & Lauren referred us as you were their favorite part of their wedding and we couldn't have been more pleased as you had everyone on the dance floor and followed our song choices! :)As you know, I do weddings and large scale events and I hope our paths cross and I will definitely be referring you to my clients. Thanks again!
Nick did an INCREDIBLE job DJing our wedding reception. He kept the night moving smoothly and picked up the slack when our venue dropped the ball. His music selection was exactly what we were looking for, and he made sure that requests were played as well.I can’t recommend Nick & DJ-Chicago highly enough. My wife and I will be referring our friends/family to DJ-Chicago whenever we can.
Thank you so much! You made the whole process run so smoothly, from beginning to end. From the early meetings, to answering any, questions, to the actual wedding evening - we could not be more pleased that we went with DJ-Chicago! Specifically, Nick went above and beyond in his professionalism and communication. We had the best evening and the music was fantastic!
Chris is awesome. He was dressed very nicely in a suit, came prepared with the agenda, checked in with us, flexible to make accommodations for minor changes for sequence of events. He was able to bring the crowd to the dance floor and everyone had a BLAST!!! He also have a smile on his face to give others a good feeling and positive vibe. I would recommend DJ Chicago and Chris 110%.
Chris was a phenomenal DJ/MC for our wedding reception. On the day of the event, he made sure we were comfortable with everything before it happened, and he checked in with us several times throughout. He made sure we stuck to our agreed-upon timeline, but was still able to adapt when we needed to allow a bit more time for dinner due to people still needing to be served. He played all our must-plays and none of our do-not-plays, and had great intuition about the rest of the sets (cocktail hour, dinner, dancing). He discretely made several announcements we requested of him as well. Guests raved throughout and afterward how great the music was...
Fabulous night! Gil was an absolutely fantastic DJ. Really made it all come together.
Chad was excellent. I love working with you all.. never disappoint!
John was awesome!!! He was great at keeping us on track but not being overbearing with it………..he got everybody on the dancefloor and kept it busy all night! We loved him!
Nick was fantastic! He kept the party alive; everyone was on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG! He played everything we asked him to play, and periodically checked in on us to ensure we were happy. We would highly recommend Nick at DJ Chicago!!
Our guests could not stop raving about the DJ (Mark), and how well he read the room, changing songs as soon as people started leaving the dance floor.
Nick did an amazing job for our wedding. From the very beginning of working with Nick his professionalism, energy, knowledge, and empathy showed through. Nick was recommended to us and we will recommend him to anyone and everyone because we are SO grateful for such a job well done! Thank you!
I just wanted to send a note to say that Jared was AWESOME last night! Our event was made very special because he did a phenomenal job of playing all the music our students wanted to hear, expertly at the right times in the night, to control and continue the energy! Thank you so, so much again. We really appreciated everything!
Chris was a outstanding DJ!! Did a great variety of music and everyone was raving about him afterwards. Very professional and polite. Absolute professional and his knowledge showed all night
We had Nick as our DJ for our wedding and he did an amazing job. Everyone was complimenting the music and we had so much fun dancing and singing. Our photographers told Nick that we were going to do a group photo with our college friends and he played the fight song from our college while we were taking the picture which was such a fun surprise!
It was an amazing night and we owe a lot of it to John. I don’t have anything but amazing things to say about him. He kept us very informed throughout the entire reception. He made sure everyone was prepared for their speeches and always checked with Ryan and myself to make sure we were good with the timeline. The dance floor was bumping all night and we owe that all to John. He kept the crowd going and we felt like he read the crowd very well. It was the best night of our lives. Thank you both so much! We couldn’t have done it without you!
I wanted you to know personally that I thought you were terrific to deal with and a great decision on our part! From start to finish you were professional and knew what I wanted and respected what I wanted. The music selections and timing were perfect, keeping me informed of what Chad was doing and what we needed to do was great. He even held my kids off after they suggested some hiphop song! I really appreciate everything you did and have been spreading the word about you guys! Keep up the good work!
Nick was the absolute best! The dance floor was completely packed all night (For 4+ hours) with people of all age groups. We had multiple people, including the wedding coordinator at the venue, tell us that it was the most consistently packed they've seen a dance floor at a wedding. Nick checked in with us multiple times throughout the event to make sure that we got all the songs that we wanted to get played. Would recommend Nick and DJ-Chicago to anyone that needs a DJ. They were a huge part of what turned out to be a perfect night!
Mark, I cannot express how much we appreciate you and the part you played in our wedding. You rocked! I had multiple people comment on how great the music was. You kept that party going. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Absolutely fantastic from our first meeting, to the last song played! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. If you ever need a reference, I would be delighted to supply a glowing one.... thanks again for all your work!
DJ was amazing!!!! Truly wonderful event thanks in large part to his great skill and talent, thanks so much!
