From the first time we worked with Buster for our wedding, we knew he was the DJ for the job. He is extremely organized and detailed oriented and helped us plan every single detail! For example, our wedding was Dec 7th and we wanted a lot of white lights with christmas greens and candles... We also wanted up lighting and he was able to talk with me about warm vs cool lights which was so helpful as we had already bought LED lights which give off a blue tint (not what we wanted at all). He was a big factor in deciding what lights to bring. He also did an amazing job with our reception. The up lighting was amazing and he kept the dance floor packed all night long! I would 100% recommend Buster and Extreme DJs and lighting!

Hiring Extreme DJs & lighting was the best decision My husband and I made (aside from deciding to get married)! They were AWESOME! Our wedding was in the Quad Cities, which is two hours away from Peoria, and Buster actually came to the quad cities numerous times to check out our venue to visualize what he could do with the space and talk to the venue cordinators. Every single one of my other vendors that met him commented on how amazing he was! We knew after meeting with him that we were in good hands. He helped us set up a timeline for the wedding and actually provided us center pieces for some of our tables that were incredable! He provided the up lighting for the venue as well as pillars that had lights in them surrounding our dance floor that changed colors. Our reception room was the most beautiful room I have ever seen from ANY wedding! We were receiving text messages and phone calls from guests before we even got to the venue about how beautiful it was....and it truly was. Our guests are still talking about it!!! We have extreme DJs and lighting to thank for it. Also, BJ was our DJ and she was so awesome! She played such great music and was so great to work with. She was very layed back and kept me calm when my photographer was stressing me out! She also did a great job dealing with people constantly coming up to her requesting songs and putting up with kids acting crazy on the dance floor all night. These guys are so wonderful and there isn't a single dj or lighting service out there that are even in the same category! Thank you guys sooo much! You turned our vision into something better!

Extreme DJs and Lighting was amazing!! I didn't even recognize the place once they were done with. The place looked stunning!! The DJ services was wonderful as well. Everyone was dancing all night long and we shut the place down. Everyone is still talking about how great the place looked and how great the music was. People thought the place looked very elegant and classy. Couldn't have been a happier bride. So glad I went with them and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks again for a great wedding reception. My husband and I won't forget this reception! :)

When I first met Buster Bracken, I was very impressed due to the amount of time he spent with us explaining a lot of helpful hints/tips/ideas regarding not only the music/lighting of the reception but also the flow of the event, timing, things I hadn't thought about, etc. He never came off pushy in that he was trying to "sell" something but very knowledgeable on what works best with a certain venue, a certain sized wedding party, etc. His knowledge and expertise were invaluable to me as I planned my wedding reception. His kind personality and professionalism were very apparent when balancing the requests of the client (us) vs. offering his advice/guidelines for what he knew to be best. Although there are people you can't control at the wedding and/or reception (last minute song requests, timing changes, impromtu surprises, etc.); Buster kept his professionalism and dealt with any unexpected changes with grace and charm. Thank you Buster!! I could not have imagined my special day without you!

Buster and Extreme DJ's and Lighting is untouchable. With Buster's vast knowledge of what he does, his high quality of work and his professionalism, without any doubt, he is the best in Central Illinois. I had worked with Buster on other occasions, and I knew that I had to have him for my wedding. His attention to detail is unbelievable, and all I did was tell him what shade of lighting I wanted, a few songs, and I trusted him enough to run with it, knowing my wedding reception would be breathtaking. And it was so much more than what I expected. Even though the table settings were phenomenal, it was the lighting that made the entire look. I loved working with Buster and his crew, and would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat. If I could fly him out to South Carolina and throw a random party just to have him do his thing, I would in a second! You would be insane to not book Extreme DJ's and Lighting,

We LOVED working with Extreme DJs and Lighting for our wedding.

The uplighting was exactly what we wanted, and made such a difference in the room. Buster was great about getting the color just right, and making sure it looked perfect throughout the night. One thing I'm really happy Buster suggested was spotlighting the tables. It made the centerpieces really pop and looked especially great once it got darker out. I wasn't sure that spotlighting would make that much of a difference, but it REALLY did! We also had "carnival" lights strung on an outside area, and they looked awesome. I was really happy with the entire lighting setup. Buster definitely knows how to use lighting to enhance a wedding.

The DJ-ing was phenomenal. Buster knew just what songs to play to keep the party going all night. There was never a lull in the dancing - people of all ages (little kids to my 85 year old grandpa) were out dancing and loving the music. I saw people on the dance floor that I've never seen dance before! It was so great, and I know it's because of the DJ. Dinner music was excellent, too.

I've been to several weddings that were done by Extreme DJs and Lighting, and they were all fantastic - Buster and his team are very consistent, and do a wonderful job. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to other engaged couples!

Our family has been fortunate to have had two weddings in two years & Buster with Extreme DJs & Lighting has provided his expertise for both. With each wedding Buster's creative vision with the draping, up lighting and pin spot lighting complimented our theme and color scheme to enhance the rooms for each venue perfectly. What a difference his attention to detail makes, the rooms were softened & elegant...Amazing results!!!! I appreciate the professionalism & honesty carried throughout the year of planning & I highly recommend Buster & his staff for any social or corporate event. He is meticulous in his work, takes great pride in pleasing his clients & is the BEST!!!! Gratefully, The Blakesley Family

Buster was extremely organized, professional, and friendly when we met in the months leading up to the wedding. On the day of the wedding, the lighting and decor transformed the reception room--full of draping, blue lighting, and "snowflakes" falling in the room. During the reception, the DJ was extremely professional and easy to work with. I would recommend Extreme DJs and Lighting to everyone.

Buster was so accomodating, and was very creative. My wedding would not have been the same without his ideas and management. Even though I was one of his first clients under his lighting business, he was fabulous. I can't even imagine what he will be like when he gets a few more weddings under his belt. The value for his services is a true steal. He had great ideas, and executed them flawlessly. When I had ideas of my own, he ran with it and made them better. He worked great with other vendors, and was professional and friendly at all times. As a DJ, Buster did exactly what I wanted, and he has a fantastic website for managing all music and the timing of the reception. I am positive that without Buster, my reception would not have flowed as smoothly as it did, it was truly perfect. Thank you, Buster, for all your hard work!!

Buster did a great job on our wedding! He was responsive when we were working out details and open to changing things as the date got closer. One of my biggest worries about our wedding was that people wouldn't dance...but with the music he played, we had people on the dance floor the whole night! He was perfect for MC, kept things flowing through the dinner, speeches, etc. Overall I would recommend him to a friend!

AMAZING JOB!! We loved EVERYTHING that you did, Buster. The lighting was more than we could have ever imagined!
Hint to future brides: DO THE LIGHTING!!!
Also, listen to Buster, he knows what he's talking about when it comes to many wedding details, not just the music selection.

I am so happy I chose Extreme DJs and Lighting for my DJ needs. Buster is awesome to work with. He is quite the talker, which is good because you really get to know each other. After talking to Buster one time I knew his company was right for me and my husband! He set up several planners online for me to manage everything prior to the wedding. After everything was submitted, he called to verify everything! Communication is really great. He sometimes would take a couple days to get back to me, but during wedding season it is expected that a DJ company is going to be busy Thursday through Sunday! BJ was our actual DJ and she did an amazing job! She did music for both our ceremony and reception! It was perfect! I would highly recommend Extreme DJ's and Lighting.

Buster was fantastic. He was very fun to talk to, and easy to plan with. He knows what he's doing and is very capable. It was a blessing having him as the DJ, running the reception and helping with the planning, especially since I didn't have a wedding planner- he really stepped up!

BJ was our DJ from here and she was wonderful. We had several compliments and comments about how great the music was and how smooth the flow was. We had some finicky decisions on several songs and I think were changing choices up to the week before and they had no problem with it. My dad also decided to play a song on his saxophone at the reception at the last minute and she had no problem accommodating it. They have an online form that you can see all your choices and the scheduling of it all and it was very convenient. Would go with them again.

We used Extreme DJs and lighting for our October wedding at Packard Plaza in Peoria. We worked with Buster, who was very easy to work with and helped us organize our timeline for our reception. The music was GREAT and he kept the dance floor hopping all night long. Not only was the music great, but the lighting they provided really enhanced the ambience for our reception. Reception music can make or break a wedding reception and Extreme DJs and Lighting do not dissapoint!
