My husband and I had the pleasure of having DJ KEL-WIN as our dj at our reception/wedding at Fox Valley Country Club. He did such an amazing job! He was very accommodating with our playlists for both the wedding ceremony and reception. We made a long list of specific songs for him to play and he was more than willing to fulfill our requests. I couldn't believe how easy he was to work with. Our guests had nothing but positive things to say about the music and of course; DJ KEL-WIN!! We will definitely be booking DJ KEL-WIN for any further events we have in the future. =)

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!
