DJ Kelwin was super thorough and kept things on track throughout the night. He was flexible, friendly and professional. If you're looking for a great DJ to partner with for your event, definitely book DJ Kelwin!

DJ Kelwin took care of the music at both my ceremony and reception. Given that this is my first (and last!) wedding, it was great to have someone who already knows what to do. He took my eclectic playlist: stepper songs for my parent's friends, hip-hop, pop and made it work--he knew exactly what songs were appropriate for a given time. I highly recommend him for your Chicago-area event!

DJ Kelwin kept the dance floor packed at our wedding. He did a great job of blending different genres together and pleased all age groups which was our main concern. He had people on the dance floor after the lights came one and it was time to go! Weeks later I am still getting comments on how much fun they had at the reception and I couldn't be more happy that DJ Kelwin was our DJ. If you are looking for a DJ that can read the crowd and provide non stop fun at your reception DJ Kelwin should be your first choice! Mike and I Thank you for making our night that much more memorable!

We hired Kelwin for our wedding in September 2013. He was super polite and easy to work with. We gave him a list of special songs that we wanted played during the ceremony and we gave Kelwin the go ahead to play songs that he thought would get the party started, during the reception. Kelwin did a fantastic job! He is super professional and always kept our guests on their feets. Everyone had an amazing job and I had several guests tell us how much they liked our DJ!! He did everything we wanted perfectly and followed all of specific instructions. He is flexible and organized/ Did I mention that is also a great MC?!! Kelwin is a master DJ!! I highly recommend him! I couldn't have imagined a better DJ! He was perfect and he definitely helped make my special day even more perfect!! If Kelwin is available, you must hire him for your wedding. I promise that you won't be disappointed!

Our guests had a great time at our wedding, they stayed on the dance floor. He did an excellent job of playing what we wanted. We did not have to give him a complete play list. We gave him some songs, and genres of music we like and the style we were going for and he created a playlist to fit what we wanted. We also did a cool and fun first dance and he created a mix of two songs for us. Our reception was hit and the music was excellent, I would definitely refer him to friends and family! Great Choice!!

DJ Kelwin was great! He met with us beforehand to figure out what we were looking for--this was probably difficult as we had a very diverse set of music that we wanted (for our very diverse set of guests). Kelwin tracked down everything we asked for and kept the dance floor busy all night! Would definitely recommend.

Kelwin provided audio and music services for my March 2013 wedding ceremony and reception. Throughout the planning process, he was always responsive and professional. Compared to other DJ's I researched, Kelwin offers a good value for his services. He collaborated well with my vocalists and musician and helped my husband with delivering a surprise storytelling segment during our reception. Kelwin demonstrated flexibility during the planning process and even the night of the reception when we requested to make changes to the timeline and music selection. Throughout the evening, Kelwin was able to determine the type of music that would maintain high energy and keep our guests on the dance floor.

He collaborated well with my vocalists and musician and helped my husband with delivering a surprise storytelling segment during our reception. Kelwin demonstrated flexibility during the planning process and even the night of the reception when we requested to make changes to the timeline and music selection. Throughout the evening, Kelwin was able to determine the type of music that would maintain high energy and keep our guests on the dance floor. Read less

All I can say was YES!! He did a great job of keeping the party going. We were on the floor all night and I mean all night. My guests were so surprised at the atmosphere of the celebration time that we went from dance floor battles to juking sessions all in one night! We had a blast! Our wedding will be talked about for many years to come. Kelwin was prompt, professional, and very accommodating to our requests. It was just a perfect day and I am so happy we choose him to what our day! No mistakes will be made when picking this DJ, that is a guarantee!!!

Thankfully,
Mr. & Mrs. Walters

DJ Kelwin is the man! My husband and I were married in Hyde Park at the University of Chicago and wanted to hire someone local. As soon as we found Kelwin, we knew he'd be the guy to get our wedding reception going - and that's exactly what he did! People were coming up to me all night saying how much they loved our DJ, including our photographers.

Kelwin was a joy to work with from start to finish. My husband and I live in California, so I had to communicate with all of my vendors through phone and email. He responded quickly and was very flexible with all my music requests. I come from a Filipino family, and Filipinos LOVE to dance - to just about anything! Kelwin was super cool about playing cha-cha songs, line dances, some new wave, pop, motown, hip hop, and r&b/soul. He had a way of feeling out the crowd and knew exactly what to play next. My favorite moment of the night was when he played "The Wobble" and everyone got into it :)

Absolutely amazing night! Kelwin was professional, attentive and very knowledgeable of wedding reception protocol. We provided a basic song reference and he did the rest. We didn't have to worry about entertaining our guests or making sure people had music to dance to. The transition from classical jazz to R&B to tasteful dance music was perfection. He worked with our budget and I had one less thing to worry about. Our wedding at the Harold Washington Library was classy and original but more important......FUN !!!!!! Thank you DJ Kel-WIN !!!

DJ KEL-WIN was a phenomenal choice for a DJ for our wedding. He was able to ensure that the microphone did not have any feedback, pop or any other loud obnoxious sounds. He was extremely professional and played the music that we wanted to play. He even went a step beyond and filtered some of the less than desirable lyrics from our favorite songs. In addition, he found songs from our Alma Matter’s band that blew our guest away. DJ KEL-WIN is a DJ that I would highly recommend, because of professionalism, his ability to grasp your concepts, as well as to keep the party going. We still get compliments from our guest saying what an awesome party that was. Thanks KEL-WIN!!

Kelwin was great! He was very professional and gave us a full template of all of our songs and the order of ceremonies. He was also extremely accommodating to my last minute changes (of which I had many). No one left the dance floor at our wedding from the first song until 20/30 minutes after the wedding was scheduled to end. I would truly recommend him to everyone.

DJ Kel-WIN earns my highest marks for his professionalism, responsiveness, and overall DJing talents! He did a great job handling the music from the beginning to the end of our intimate ceremony and reception last week. I hired Kelwin less than two weeks before our ceremony after not being sure it would be worthwhile to hire a DJ for a wedding with 38 guests. He was worth every penny!!! His prompt response to my initial inquiry about his availability set the tone for the rest of our productive phone and email conversations. My fiance and I enjoyed working with him on our playlist, but we also trusted his vision for selecting music we all could appreciate. In sum, the music for the ceremony, dinner, and dancing both set and fit the mood we wanted for our special day. I would not hesitate to hire DJ Kel-WIN again to provide the soundtrack to any future important life celebrations.

DJ Kelwin was absolutely wonderful to work with and very on top of things. I highly recommend him for his DJ services. He may or may not provide announcement services b/c it's not typically what he does (luckily, he did it for us). He's very organized and knows what he's doing. I'd definitely work with him again.

I can't even come up with the words to describe how great DJ Kelwin was at our wedding. I suppose I'll start from the beginning. Kelwin met up with us a couple of months before the wedding and discussed with us the type of style we wanted and the feel of our wedding. He was so professional from the very beginning. I ran into a few issues with our wedding venue and wasn't able to get back to him for quite some time and he was very understanding and accommodating throughout that process. Now for the wedding. Fantastic! Everyone keeps talking about how great the music was and asking us how we found our DJ. Unfortunately, he doesn't have a lot of reviews out on the internet, but I'm glad that did not stop me from hiring Kelwin. I spoke with a few references who had glowing reviews about DJ Kelwin and now I'm proud to provide a glowing review as well. If you want a DJ that is going to work with you to make your day perfect and show your guests a good time, book Kelwin asap!
