Rich and the staff at Essence Entertainment were stellar from beginning to end. We knew what we were getting from our initial meeting and were so excited to choose our own music and plan the day through the super-helpful Online Planner. At the wedding itself, Rich took over as MC flawlessly - you can just tell he is an experienced professional. I trust him completely (and when something was threatening to derail our agreed-upon plan, he advocated for me and my groom - what couple wouldn't want that on their day!?). Our guests had the BEST time (and even some wedding crashers complained that their music "wasn't as awesome as ours") - they danced and took pictures in the photobooth. The memories that Essence Entertainment helped create for, and with us, will last a lifetime. Thank you SO much, Essence Entertainment!!

If you are looking for the best DJ in town, look no further. Essence entertainment is amazing! We had a multicultural reception and wanted to make sure the music fitted all of our guests and he did it! My husband and I are huge Blackhawks fans as well as our bridal party so he even announced the score for us through out the reception. I will recommend them for anyone looking for a great DJ!!! You rock, Rich!!

We used Essence Entertainment for our wedding on 11/8/14 and have no regrets! Rich was great to work with from beginning to end. Before the wedding, he was extremely responsive, professional and was very helpful in working through the timeline of the reception. He arrived at the reception early and was all set up and ready to go by the time we got there (throughout the night he worked seamlessly with the reception staff). During the reception, he was prepared with the notes from our previous discussions and did exactly what he said he would do. In addition, he checked in with me throughout the night without being intrusive or annoying. He also made changes to the music on the fly following my ad hoc requests and/or reading the dance floor. I can’t stress how great it was working with these guys, they are nice, responsive, intuitive, fun and yet extremely professional. When I have another event where I need a DJ, I won’t waste my time interviewing anyone else — I’ll go straight to Essence! Thanks to Rich and his assistant Patrick for a great night!!

DJ Rich and his team went above and beyond my expectations! They were organized, professional and responsive to all of our needs. All of our guests commented the uplighting he provided was beautiful, the music he played kept everyone on the dance floor and the photo booth was a hit (definitely use this service if you can afford). Thanks again for making our day so special!

Every piece of the ceremony + reception was exactly how we imagined it. The help before the wedding was great, we really appreciated the small tips that came from Rich's previous experiences. When we were doing their short satisfaction survey, we seriously considered adding new adjectives beyond excellent.

DJ Scott rocked the house at or wedding! He kept the crowd going all night & had a great feel for the diversity of our group of guests. We had SUCH a blast dancing the night away, it was perfect!
He was spot on with timing of the night & politely keeping things moving along. The pre wedding meetings were perfect, informative, specific, & professional.
We met with Tom at one meeting & spoke on the phone a bit & really appreciated his enthusiasm & friendliness.
Overall, Essence Entertaiemt is the best around. So happy we had the chance to work with them!

Cannot say enough great things about Rich and Essence! Working with Rich was a wonderful experience. We got more than a Dj. We received a personalized experience filled with options, flexibility and some of the best advice. From the moment I called I felt like I was talking with an old friend. Essence provided an outstanding experience and our guests are still raving about how much fun they had 4 1/2 months later!

My wife and I were referred to Essence Entertainment by a close friend. From the point when we had our first meeting with Rich I knew we were going to use them for what I thought was going to be just DJ services. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Rich had made it a point to reach out to the wedding planner as well as the other vendors to coordinate the details of our wedding which was on 08/16/2014.

The day of our wedding was an absolute blast! Rich and his crew brought their "A" game from start to finish. The room at Drury Lane Theatre where we had our reception was breath taking. We went with the Essence Entertainment Premium Package with the photo booth. I cannot describe the elegance that the lighting brought to the room for our special day. I think every guest made it to the photo booth and had a terrific time doing so.

Once the music started Rich had the entire room on their feet dancing the night away. Rich brought an energy to the dance floor like I had never see before. His interaction with everyone from the wedding party to the guests made the night memorable beyond words. I would highly recommend Essence Entertainment for any special gathering that you want to make a lasting memory of.
