I hired Craig to DJ my outdoor wedding reception for about 60 guests. We had already eloped, but we wanted to celebrate with family and friends. Craig was extremely easy to work with in the weeks leading up to the event. He provided us with a website to select all of our songs, which was a HUGE selling point to my husband who was a bit "anti-DJ" (sorry Craig!). We were also able to pre-select the schedule and special songs for different points of the night. On the day of the reception, Craig arrived early to set up. Unfortunately, about 5 minutes before the guests arrived, the sky opened up and dumped an unbelievable amount of rain on our beautiful setup. Craig sprung to action and moved everything indoors and also helped us move tables and furniture under the tent so it wouldn't get ruined. Despite being soaked to the bone, he kept a smile on his face and stayed positive in the midst of chaos. He quickly set up his equipment indoors and got the party started. Things certainly didn't go as planned, but it made me appreciate hiring a true professional, because he made the best of a tough situation and seemed to know exactly what to do to salvage the night. All of my friends and family had a blast dancing to the great music and I'm still getting rave reviews about how fun of a night it was - even from my husband, the former DJ snob. :) Thank you!!!

Grand DJ Entertainment helps take the stress off your big day. Your personal DJ will call you a couple days before the wedding confirming everything you have planned. You'll have your DJ's cell phone number in case you wish to change anything last minute before your big event. I couldn't have been happier with the professionalism and respect this company has for you as the groom, bride, or member of the wedding party. I highly recommend Grand DJ Entertainment to DJ your wedding.

From the very beginning we were excited to use Grand DJ Entertainment. We had been to another wedding where Craig was the DJ and had a blast. The website was very user friendly and Craig got in contact with my the next day. He spent time to get to know me and my soon to be husband. He then set us up with a DJ Eric. The online planning tool was a perfect way to make sure we had everything we needed for our big night. Eric called a few nights before to go over all the details of our wedding and to get to know our story. The night of the event went flawless. Eric showed up early and prepared for our outdoor ceremony and inside reception at Villa Olivia in Bartlett, IL. He was so flexible with us and kept the party going all night long. He even let me play DJ for a bit. We will definitely be recommending Grand DJ Entertainment to anyone who is looking for a DJ. Thanks again Eric and Craig for making our evening a night that we will never forget!

Look no further for a DJ! Craig from Grand DJ was amazing from our first point of contact. He was quick to respond and address our needs. As our wedding got closer, Craig was amazing to work with. So much energy and obvious excitement for our reception. Everyone raved about the music at our reception. It was a perfect mix - everything we hoped for and more! We highly recommend Grand DJ for your wedding or any other special event!

Craig was our dj for our wedding on April 30th, 2016 and it was nothing short of spectacular. Every little change or special note I gave him he remembered. He was extremely flexible with last minute updates and really got the crowd involved. Couldn't have asked for a better night.

Craig was AMAZING!!! We were feeling unsure of whether or not to hire a DJ for our small wedding reception, but as soon as he and I spoke on the phone I was 100% convinced. He listened to me talk about our vision for the party, he was completely accepting, reassuring, and extremely personable to boot. My husband and I were very set on a particular playlist for our reception, but the truth is that we should've just told Craig to play whatever he wanted and the party would've been perfect. About 2 hours into the 4 hour reception, people were not really dancing to the playlist that my husband and I insisted upon (again, Craig was bending over backward to do whatever we wanted for the music--totally amenable to whatever we wanted, so lovely to work with.) When I saw that people weren't dancing to the music my hubbie and picked out, I went up to Craig and said, "Get people on the dance floor. Forget our playlist, you have carte blanche." On the very next song, the dance floor was filled and the dancing didn't stop the whole night. The man is a magician. He knows how to read a crowd, he knows music, and he knows how to throw a party. Hire him. You won't be disappointed.
