Nick from DJ Chicago was the DJ for our costumed Halloween wedding, and I seriously cannot speak highly enough of him. Our dance floor was as active for the entire night as I’ve seen at any wedding, and Nick was also very on the ball in regards to making sure the scheduled dances happened according to plan.
A few weeks prior to the ceremony we had a zoom meeting where we told him what we were looking for, and no request was too specific or too vague for him; it was clear he’d be cool to do the entire thing on a playlist or to pick all the songs himself, and I really appreciated that. We ended up doing a split of the two, and all the songs that Nick picked fit in perfectly with the event, our selected songs, and our musical tastes. He also had no issue finding and playing a lot of obscure music that we requested, which I also appreciated.
It’s also worth noting that because of Covid we had to postpone the reception an entire year, and DJ-Chicago was totally cool about that and very responsive throughout.
Use DJ-Chicago! We’re sure glad we did!
Nick and our DJ, Chris H, we’re incredible. DJ Chicago simply knows what they’re doing. We had 3 locations we needed music for and they didn’t bat an eye. Most importantly our dance floor was packed all night, just like we wanted! I’ve already recommend them to other couples.
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!
Nick (owner of DJ Chicago) dj’d our 10/16/21 wedding at Revolution Brewing’s Brewers Lounge, and oh my goodness, what a fantastic night it was! My husband and I went to several other weddings in the months leading up to ours, and NO ONE’S had a dance floor that was as packed as ours. We were able to select so many great songs from the catalogue and Nick knew exactly what to play at exactly the right moments. He really was our master-of-ceremony too, communicating with all of toast-givers prior to their toasts and checking in with us consistently throughout the night. We would hire DJ Chicago again in a heartbeat.
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!!
