Great music order, great price, listened to what we wanted, HIGHLY recommended!!

We hired Carl from City Street DJs for our wedding and it was such a great decision! We met with Carl first about a year before our wedding, then again about 3 weeks before the wedding. His website was easy to use, he was prompt in responding to our messages, and he did a fantastic job at the wedding! Having great dance music at the wedding was something that was very important to me, and I worked very hard on putting the playlist together. He started the night taking requests, and when I realized that was what was happening, I had my wedding planner ask him to stop and he did. He was very attentive to the crowd and would play slow songs when people started to get tired. We also did father-daughter/mother-son dances but where we wanted everyone to dance as well, and when people didn't react the first time to him telling them to get on the dance floor, he said it again to make sure people got up because he knew it was important to us to have everyone dance to those songs.

Carl also did the music for the ceremony and cocktail hour, and played exactly what we asked for perfectly. He also did the uplighting for our reception which really took it up a notch!

Overall, Carl was absolutely amazing and I am so happy we hired him. To anyone that wants a huge dance party at their event, City Street DJs is absolutely the way to go!

Thank you so much for making my wedding truly the best day ever!!

Carl with City Street DJ was amazing from the start to finish! He worked really hard to be accommodating for my now husband and I. First meeting, before we had even hired him, he came to city to meet with us. Which is huge, since people from the city hate leaving the city! Haha! He is super personable, has a great sense of humor, and overall very open to give the bride and groom free rein on the “feel” of the reception. Carl made it a point to get to know us as a couple, and make sure we were on the same page when it came to all the events of the day. Something that was AWESOME was that Carl was our music person for the ceremony, cocktail hour, AND reception. It was great to only have to coordinate with him for all the events of the day. Everything was amazing from the ceremony to the last song! We had so many compliments on Carl and how he kept the dance floor literally PACKED all night!!! Another perk is that Carl’s prices are super reasonable, which was huge for us on such a tight budget! We couldn’t have made a better decision than Carl and City Street DJ for our big day! Thanks Carl for playing all the hot jams and dealing with my families ridiculously horrible dance moves ☺

I would highly recommend City Street's! Carl was so easy to work with and had tons of suggestions of songs and things to do, without being pushy at all. He was so patient with my questions and some of my last minute changes and things that I sent to him. He was professional on-site and kept our guest dancing all night. We have had tons of compliments from our guest about how great the DJ was!

We hired Carl of City Street's DJs for our wedding this past June. I was a little ahead of the game and booked Carl right away, almost a year and a half in advance. I was one of those super planner brides. We met with Carl at a local Starbucks and proceeded to tell him our vision of our big day. He was very organized and professional, but also warm and all around a nice person. We decided to book him right away (after meeting with other DJs in the Chicago area) and he set us up with an online portal to help us manage the music we wanted played and to tell him about songs that were not to be played under any circumstances. Carl was always available by email any time we had a question and met with us two additional times before the wedding. He wasn't too familiar with the venue we had chosen, so he wanted to get an understanding of the layout and the flow of the event. That was very much appreciated! We went into our wedding day feeling very confident that everything would flow very nicely and it did! Thank you so much Carl!

Carl was the best of the best. We had high expectations and met with several deejays before we made our decision, and boy did we choose well.

From our first meeting until the last song was played Carl was organized, meticulous, energetic, full of ideas, and really helped us to cover all the bases. Carl met with us face to face initially, met us again at the venue we were holding the party in so he knew what to expect, and then touched base with us the week of the wedding for any last minute details.

He also helped keep us on schedule as much as possible throughout the night. He kept the party going all night - the dance floor was literally full every minute. He handled guests who came up to him with requests and questions with poise and patience, and there were several times I looked over and he was rocking out himself. There's no one better to work with than someone who really likes his job!

I wanted to mention that we ended up having a very tight amount of time to setup as there was a group in the ballroom before our wedding. You never would have known it and we didn't have an easy setup. Carl had everything in its place: The uplights throughout the ballroom were setup perfectly, the deejay table was ready to go (and looking really sharp), the list goes on.

It's also worth mentioning that we didn't give Carl a tremendous amount of guidance in the music we wanted played. This gave me slight anxiety but my fiancé insisted that we needed to give him some creative license and trust him to do his job. I'm so glad we did. With the exception of a few suggestions and requests Carl had the flexibility to read the crowd and play what worked...and it really worked!

Do yourself a favor and book Carl for your wedding or event. He is the full package. I would hire Carl again and again. Thank you City Street DJ's and Event Lighting for all you did to make our wedding reception one we'll never forget!

Carl is amazing! I was planning our wedding from NH, and I was in town for a funeral in April, and Carl was able to set up a meeting within a couple miles from my house (otherwise we would not have been able to meet until the wedding in October.) We Skyped with him beforehand and he is very friendly. At the actual wedding, Carl didn't skip a beat; he played everything I asked for every part of the wedding. We played the shoe game at the reception, and Carl also did a great job asking our questions; not to mention what a great job he did keeping me on our timeline! He was amazing, and worth way more than he charges!! I'd definitely recommend him for any wedding or event!

We would absolutely recommend Carl to anyone. We planned a wedding from out of state and couldn't meet with him before the wedding, but he made himself available as much as possible, responded to emails quickly, and guided us through the planning process. He really went above and beyond making planning easier for us and keeping the dance floor moving until the end. We were so surprised and happy with the crowd that turned out to dance, and I'm sure it was due to the balance he managed to strike between our (many) song requests and music that would keep everyone involved, from our 20-something friends to our parents and grandparents.

Carl was also flexible with last-minute changes that we threw at him, like needing to add a bouquet toss when we thought we wouldn't have one. He stepped up to help direct photos and other events, which was really a life-saver. We thought that hiring Carl was probably our best choice in planning the wedding because of how easy he was to work with and what a great job he did, not to mention the fact that he has some of the most reasonable prices around.

We had a good experience with Carl. There were no hitches other than during the cocktail hour (no music) but I suspect it was due to the damp weather. He strictly adhered to out play and do not play lists and the dance floor stayed busy. He worked within our budget and gave us a competitive offering. He was pretty responsive before and leading up to the wedding. Would definitely recommend for weddings and other events.

We worked with Carl for our wedding. He was nothing but helpful. He was willing to drive out to meet my now husband and I. He was easy to talk to and easy to relay our ideas with. Carl was always professional always helpful. We got so many compliments on the music at our wedding. He has people on the dance floor at all times. We had some unusual songs and he has no problem finding the songs we wanted and making sure that our reception was prenominal. He played a nice timeline of songs and had even the 'wiser' people on the floor. We had so much fun at our reception and it was in large part due to Carl. He kept things moving and there were no dull moments. I would recommend Carl to anyone and everyone.
