Greg (DJ) and Roger (photobooth attendant) made our wedding even more incredible than we had expected. I really asked a lot of Greg by having him lead several games during the reception and asking him to play music that he had likely never heard before. He was excellent at communicating what he needed from me in order to make that happen, and I was not disappointed. He took everything I gave him and amplified it to fit our event by including us and utilizing Roger as a co-host of sorts. Greg made several announcements for us at our request and on his own when he wanted to get people's music requests. Roger was an amazing photobooth attendant who bantered with people coming to the photobooth for the first time and the 30th time, and I'm pretty sure I saw him in some of my guests photos. Oh, and make sure you ask for the Memory book! I would highly recommend this duo for any event - you will not be disappointed. They are two of the most helpful, respectful and fun guys you will ever have the pleasure of working with. We had compliments throughout the night about how great both Greg and Roger were.

We chose Bugbee's DJ Plus based off previous reviews and we are VERY glad we did. Dan was our DJ and he was amazing. He made the whole process very easy and had our guests dancing from start to finish. We also rented the Photo booth through Bugbee's and it was a huge hit with our guests. It was in use from the time it opened until the time it closed. I would highly recommend Dan and Bugbee's DJ Plus!

So happy I chose Bugbee's DJ Plus and had Roger Young (and his wife Lindsay) at our wedding. He was the most attentive DJ and helped make our wedding so special. We had several special requests and Roger made all of them happen for us. He even made my husband's Aunt cry with joy because one our our special request was that we try and honor her and couldn't come up with anything and he said he would say something special and boy did he. She was so touched and this is just a small gesture that puts this company above the rest! His special toast that he made for us, meant a lot and I am not sure any other DJ would have done anything that personal. Roger is a true gem. Our dance floor was hopping all night long and Roger truly listened to us when we asked for certain songs to be played and others to be omitted. Couldn't have been happier with my choice for the DJ at our wedding. Had a lot of people tell me what a great time they had and I know it was because of Roger Young and Bugbee's DJ Plus. Thank you so much!!

Can't thank Roger enough! He made sure everything ran smoothly start to finish and couldn't have been friendlier! He was detailed, easy to communicate with and more than willing to accommodate the rustic venue and crazy weather that brought rain, hail and sleet! He played music according to our selections and did not deviate from it unless confirming with us! Needless to say, we had nothing but compliments on the evening and the fun. A DJ can definitely make or break an event, and in this case EVERYONE we spoke to said it was the best wedding and most fun they have ever had. We owe a GIANT thank you to Roger for being super flexible and he paired nicely with our friends and family with his humor and charisma. We also had the photo booth with our package, and his wife did a great job putting together our book to preserve the interesting memories our friends and family captured. Couldn't have found a nicer couple to share our night- professional, flexible, friendly! - Matt & Nicole

For us, deciding to go with Bugbee's DJ Plus was an easy choice. My sister and her husband worked with them 5 years prior for their own wedding reception. When my husband and I were researching bands versus DJs for our own wedding reception, we quickly agreed that Bugbee's was the best company to select, by leaps and bounds. We were familiar with the company and their level of professionalism and great rapport with their clients, as not only has family selected them for previous weddings but many of our Champaign friends have used their services as well. It really says a great deal at a wedding reception when everyone is out of their seats and on the dance floor - that is how it was all night long! Dan C., our DJ, did an amazing job of coinciding our own suggested playlist with those of his choice, that matched the overall "feel" of the night and the mood of our guests. We could not have envisioned a more perfect wedding reception and were so grateful to work so fluidly with Dan C. Our guests kept saying how much they loved all the music, were having a blast the whole time - we even had our crowd that was still partying and dancing at the last song chanting "One more song! One more song!" Dan was such a great sport and played another GREAT (second) last song. Such a fun, final wedding reception my husband and our families share because of Dan! We would highly, highly recommend Bugbee's time and time again to those who are looking for an outstanding company to work with! Thanks again, Bugbee's & Dan!!

Dan Church was the MC at our wedding reception. With all the madness that comes on your wedding day, and when you're being pulled in many directions for final preparations its very important that your DJ need minimal instruction on where to go, on what to do, or on how to do it. Dan fought Friday rush hour traffic into the heart of downtown Chicago on a rainy day, arrived early and took care of business. He was professional and courteous and did an excellent job on our reception. He was polite and you could sense that he genuinely wanted to make the day memorable for us and our guests. He did! Great job Dan!

We worked with DAN, and he was wonderful! We couldn't be happier that we chose him to DJ our wedding. Dan was patient with my changes and various last minute crazy requests. We met with two DJ's before meeting with Dan and we were not impressed, they were either too inflexible and/or not personal. When meeting with Dan, right away, he made it clear that he wanted to create an atmosphere that we had in mind when it came to music choices. Dan was very kind and thoughtful to our family and friends who made music requests as well. My 6 yr old nephew, loved Dan so much, he kept wanting to hang out with Dan. Dan helped keep the flow of the evening. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Bugbee's DJ, Dan. Thank you Dan, for being the perfect DJ for our special day.

Our DJ for our wedding was Greg. We LOVED him. He is extremely organized and well prepared, and made us feel completely comfortable leaving the entertainment and timing of everything up to him. We had some special requests for introductions of our bridal party, and he nailed it! He also went above and beyond to work with our maid of honor on her speech. We left all lighting decision up to him, and he did a fantastic job. We had many guests complement on how fun our DJ was, and we couldn't agree more!

My wife and I had our dream wedding reception and Greg Bugbee and Bugbee's DJ Plus were one of the main reasons why. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

First off, Greg is INCREDIBLY responsive and timely with emails and phone calls. Greg's rates were among the best and most competitive in the area. And Greg is just a kind, friendly and fun guy to be around. We were just so impressed by Greg's professionalism, reliability, experience and commitment to detail.

Greg was not only our DJ and Emcee but helped us think through and plan our entire reception to make sure the event would go smoothly and cater to the different types of people we'd have at our wedding, dancers vs non-dancers, drinkers vs non-drinkers, old vs young, etc.

In our first meeting, he came incredibly prepared and has done SO many different types of events that he was able to answer every question and help us think through a lot of the complexities of executing a wedding reception.

And throughout the whole planning process, it was clear to us that Greg's priority was making sure that every single guest had a great time at our wedding reception.

And that was exactly what happened.

Greg somehow managed to appeal to every demographic at our reception: our elderly relatives from Asia, the young clubbing-types, the more conservative non-drinkers/non-dancers, kids and everyone in between.

Throughout the weeks after our reception we kept hearing variations of this:

"Who was that DJ guy? He was amazing!!"

Many of our friends and family said it was the most fun they've had at a wedding reception.

So in conclusion, we are so happy to write this review because we hope that many engaged couples will have a chance to work with Greg and his amazing team.
