The reason we have been so successful in satisfying our customers is that we take the time to understand their personal tastes and musical preferences. Couples that hire DJ-Chicago for their wedding reception meet with their DJ several weeks prior to their wedding day so they know their DJ understands their expectations for the night, from the opening introductions to the last song of the evening.

In addition to our personal attention and professionalism, another way that we differentiate ourselves from other DJ companies is that we feel the focus of a wedding reception should be the couple, not the DJ. In fact, we feel that the only place for “cheese” at a wedding reception is on the appetizer tray and definitely not at the DJ table. Read less

Mark at DJ-Chicago was a pleasure to work with from the very beginning. In our initial meetings, he was incredibly enthusiastic about the venue and our song selections. He offered great suggestions about what song choices work at weddings. He was incredibly professional in the planning stages and we felt very confident that he would be well prepared for the big day. Mark did an excellent job with the introductions, and again gave great advice as to when we should do speeches (we had everyone speak before dinner so that our speakers could relax while they eat). Once it was time to dance, Mark did an amazing job. The dance floor was rarely empty - if/when a song didn't work, he quickly transitioned to the next one. He took requests from guests, but was careful to honor our do-not-play list. His song choices were on point - we have had so many comments already from our guests about how much fun they had dancing. We had a blast dancing, and we would strongly recommend Mark and DJ Chicago to anyone getting married, or for any other event that needs a DJ.

Mark from DJ Chicago was incredible. Book him now!!

We have been to a lot of weddings over the past few years, and ours was the best dance floor of them all, by a long shot. The entire wedding was up on their feet - all ages - all night long. The dance floor was so packed, there were overflow groups among the tables. We'd never seen anything like it, and were absolutely over the moon.

In our pre-wedding session, Mark discussed our musical tastes and the artists that were special/meaningful to us - and it was amazing to hear him working in the songs/artists we discussed throughout the night, whether it was during dinner or on the dance floor. It truly felt like "our wedding."

We are still getting compliments on how amazing the music was, and it's already been a month! My mother's friends attested to the fact that they hadn't danced that much in 20 years, and our younger friends were practically crying with happiness by the end of the night. They had that great of a time.

So thank you DJ Chicago - you made our wedding better than we could have even imagined!

If you're planning a wedding - hire DJ Chicago, it's a must! They are so good, they'll make the groom (that's me) split his tuxedo jacket in half from dancing so hard. Everyone will have an awesome time. Seriously. I literally split my tux jacket in half from dancing so hard. That's how good DJ Chicago is. That's how great of a time you will have. If you don't believe me, call up Modernly Formal Tuxedo and ask them about the split tux that came back.

Mark was GREAT to work with. He was receptive, offered good suggestions and did a really nice job following up with us if we went MIA for a few days (you know how wedding planning goes..) My wife and I met with him at his office twice ahead of the wedding - first to talk details, and secondly to review music options a few weeks prior to our wedding.

Nick DJ'd our wedding (at Artango) and he was AWESOME! So awesome. I highly recommend him. He knew just what to play during dinner to keep things classy, and what to play during the reception to keep the party going. Nick did and EXCELLENT job on announcements and introductions. He was genuinely interested in our wedding, our guests and in making sure we had a perfect evening.

Hire DJ Chicago, work with Mark and grab Nick to DJ your wedding - you will be glad you did!

They were awesome! My fiancé and I met with the owner, Mark and Gil (who DJ'd our wedding) and they were very kind and had helpful insights in the music world. They liked our song list choice and I was super excited that they were knowledgeable with my Salsa and Merengue options. Gil was great the day of the wedding with also being our M.C. My fiancé and I had a great time! We also had guests who said they loved the DJ and they too had a blast!

We are so happy that we used DJ Chicago for our wedding.

My husband and I did not want a DJ that would dominate our reception with "cheesy" antics. Mark delivered. He was professional, kept everything on track, and most importantly played music that aligned with our tastes.

Our dance floor was packed all night, with the young and older guests alike.

Thank you!

DJ Mark of DJ- Chicago is amazing! I booked him a year ago for my old hollywood glam wedding. During the year we worked together, we had regular communication, which was important since I was planning this wedding from Portland, OR. I was beyond pleased when we were able to meet a few months before the event to hammer out some details. Mark is one of those DJ's that can get an impression of exactly what you want just by you naming a few songs that are important to you. I would say "what's that one song"... and he knew exactly what I was talking about.

The actual wedding was a smash hit, he had the crowd going and started off the reception with a bang. He also was able to wrangle my crazy wedding party during the lineup- he's a pro. I would definitely recommend Mark and his company for any event! Thanks Mark!

We hired DJ Chicago and their DJ Chris for our wedding. The music and dancing exceeded our expectations, and we would hire DJ Chicago and Chris again in a heart beat.
DJ Chicago was easy and fun to work with. We met with the owner and Chris a few weeks before the wedding, and they helped us modify our music selections which made for a better party. We picked a lot of great music but some of it wasn't great for dancing. We also neglected to pick music that would appeal to our parents and older family members. Making these changes really paid off because these were the most popular songs with all of our guests! At the wedding, Chris did an excellent job getting guests on the dance floor. We couldn't believe the number of people on the dance floor - everyone from kids to my friends to my parents and relatives. Chris kept people on the dance floor by playing song after song that resonated with our guests. Additionally, the mother of the groom was missing right before the mother-groom dance! Thank you Chris for keeping the party going (and us relaxed) through the dead time between the formal dances.

I cannot express how grateful my husband and I are to have had the opportunity to have DJ Chicago as our wedding DJ. John, our DJ for the night, was a pleasure to work with the evening of our wedding. He was kind, professional, helpful and made the night run smoothly from the introductions until the last song of the evening. Not only did he play great music, but he was the wedding corridinator for the evening. We decided to have some non-conventional dinner music played, which we provided a playlist and had John add additional songs as needed. Dj Chicago welcomed this list and did not make me feel like I was stepping on their toes as professionals. John rocked our dinner playlist songs and we received so many compliments on our choices. After dinner, he kept the dance floor packed-which was exactly what we wanted. I cannot rave enough about how easy it was working with both Mark and John and will highly recommend DJ Chicago to anyone looking for a DJ (and anyone that will listen :) ) I must say I am a very pleased bride with this vendor choice. HIRE DJ CHICAGO- YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

I'll be honest, I booked DJ-Chicago because they were the least expensive. I could not honestly get my head around how expensive DJ's were and I figured the least expensive would be fine. But the thing that blew me away more than anything, was how fantastic they were. The DJ at our wedding was incredible! He read the room, took suggestions well, was nice and did exactly what we wanted. He played fantastic music all night and more than half of our guests commented on how great the music was. We had so many people dancing and having fun all the way to the end, and I know Chad had a lot to do with it.

We were perhaps slightly biased because we knew Mark (the owner) in advance, but we had no direct experience at any of his events. My fiance set everything up, and while we were not able to get Mark that night, he promised us that we would not be disappointed. And boy, were we not! Chris was absolutely perfect - literally the best DJ I have ever seen at any wedding or other event. We met a little over a month before the wedding and threw a lot at Chris and Mark. My fiance and I like a variety of music styles, and Chris was able to get everything we wanted in during the evening at the perfect times. The dance floor was packed the entire evening with people ranging from 4 year olds to those in their 60s, many times with all on the floor at the same time. He found the perfect balance of oldies and current music, which was a concern to us given the age spread at the wedding. We would recommend Chris and DJ Chicago to anyone looking to plan an event where they want a fun, professional, affordable, detail oriented, personalized DJ.
