Don is amazing! We are regular listeners of 95 Wiil Rock and my husband knew he wanted to meet with Don for our wedding. We clicked with him immediately. He is funny and really puts you at ease and makes you feel comfortable. He REALLY knows his stuff! He's honest about what will work and shares his experience. He really, truly does make your wedding sound like YOUR wedding. I cannot tell you how many guests raved about the music! We had guests from all age groups with all types of taste in music and there was something for everyone, but it never became generic. It was like Don had taken our phones and copied our favorite playlists. He was energetic, enthusiastic, patient with our requests, and a pleasure to work with. He had a fantastic questionnaire that, we believe, really helped him get to know us. We sincerely recommend him to anyone looking for a truly personalized wedding experience. Thank you Don!

First of all, what an appropriate name for this company! We had been searching high and low for a quality DJ and we kept getting the same speech over and over again. We are a pretty personable couple and couldn't even imagine booking someone with a generic personality and way of DJing. Fortunately, my cousin (lead singer of Suburban Cowboys) recommended FunTimes Dj since he is good friends with Don Wilson. When we met with him, it was like meeting with an old friend. Don not only won our hearts and ears over, but he was able to mix songs on the spot and show us what he is capable of. He provides a phone number that he texts with, which made things way easier since phone conversations weren't always an option. Don's sense of humor and flexibility were two components that made us feel at ease when planning our wedding. He even has his own personable survey that he prefers over the generic song forum that most of the big companies have. He explains why he likes it better in a more elaborate way, but he is definitely right. By the time our wedding came around, you could hear him clearly due to his top of the line equipment! We've been to enough weddings where we could not hear anything the DJ said. Not only was the sound quality fantastic, but Don pays attention to every detail! During the maid and matron of honor speeches, he listend to key details and played a clip from both Backstreet Boys and Beauty & the Beast because he heard the girls mention them in their speech! I assumed that they had prearranged this with him, but that was not the case! It was so cool! Don listened to all of our requests, and yes because I was the bride he played everything I requested! I remember at one point of the night that a song came on that I didn't want to hear, and all I had to do was make eye contact with him and he knew to change it right away! It was seriously awesome! Our friends and family have been talking about it non-stop and we got married a month ago! So glad we booked Don!

Don is a wonderful DJ! He spends time learning about the things you enjoy and the music you like. I was so impressed that in our final meeting he had already found a transition song to flow from one song to the next during introductions even though he was nearing the end of his political campaign and busier then anyone could imagine, he still took the time to work on making my wedding great! He is willing to do whatever it takes to make your wedding wonderful. I highly recommend Don Wilson and Fun Times DJ to anyone and everyone having a wedding or event in the Chicagoland or Milwaukee area!

The music was perfect for our atmosphere and guests (we received many compliments from our friends and family as well)! Don did a brilliant job to keep things moving along at a comfortable pace throughout such a memorable night. Of course, we think our wedding party entrance will never be topped! We are very grateful Fun Times DJ was able and willing to travel to Three Oaks, Michigan, and we would recommend them to anyone anywhere! Best. Night. Ever.

FUN TIMES DJ is the best DJ services out there! My wife and I had Mike as our DJ. He did an unbelievable job at keeping everyone going and partying during the wedding! He even played Frozen "let it go" for my 4 year old daughter! It made her night! I would recommend Fun Times to anyone that wants to never forget their special event.

Where Do I begin...When I began looking for a DJ for my wedding, I was so overwhelmed..
I looked at a ton of different DJ Companies all over Chicago and really didn't find one that my husband and I really clicked with. A family member mentioned Fun Times DJ and said check them out! After meeting with them, I knew right away I wanted them to DJ our wedding!! They really make you feel comfortable and they really get to know what you like and don't like. Thats what it should be!!! They actually work WITH you!! Most DJ's we met, it was their way or the highway. When my wedding day finally came, it was beyond what I expected!! They really made the night special. AND they kept everyone dancing all night!! I will definitely be referring them to my friends and family members! YOU GUYS ROCK!

Don was fabulous! We were planning to have dancing outside and dinner under the tent but when it started to rain during dinner, he seamlessly moved everything under the tent with no interruption in the music. He really paid attention to the crowd and kept adjusted his music selections accordingly.

Our wedding was absolutely perfect. Fun Times DJ, specifically Don Wilson did such a fabulous job!! He made planning stress free and enjoyable!! The questionnaire they use really personalized our wedding and the suggestions he gave us made it even better! I have been to many weddings that Don has done and each of them was unique demonstrating their belief that the focus of the evening should be on the couple getting married!! The dance floor was always packed and I continue to get compliments! I highly recommend Fun Times DJ and would never use anyone else!
