Our new On-Line planning allows you to request as many songs as you wish. Keep in mind that during a 3-4 hour timeframe, you can fit between 50-70 songs.
What is your usual attire?
Suit & Tie. Classiest looking Dj's in the Chicagoland Area. Guaranteed!
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Absolutely not! As part of our service, we will download the respective song/songs from ITunes or Amazon assuring it will be played at your event. We don't take shortcuts with YouTube or Free downloads as the sound quality will be different. Top of the Line friends!
How many other DJs do you work with?
We currently staff 4 professional and outstanding DJ's.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely! It's important to us that you have an in-person consultation with the DJ that will represent you on your wedding night!
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes, with our new on-line planning it's even more simple! Just select the song or artist and check "Do Not Play". That's it!
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, a full professional computerized sound system is included in our Standard Package. Sub-woofers included upon request. Refer to our website for complete details.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We include in our standard package an outstanding light show. It's enough to fill your venue's space and dance floor with classy lighting. In addition, we offer uplighting and projecting your "Names" in Lights on the Dance Floor, Wall, or Ceiling.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
We arrive 2 hours prior to event to assure all is set up and in place prior to your first guest arriving.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No, we feel it's tacky to place a sign as it will appear in your pictures and videos.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Yes, our focus is driven purely on the bride and groom. As a result, the announcements are based on them and guests!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Grand DJ Entertainment does not take breaks. In addition, we do not require a meal. This is solely left up to the client's discretion.

Grand DJ Entertainment does not take breaks!

No, each DJ is assigned to only one event allowing full focus only on your special event!
What is your overtime rate?
$150 per hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?

The DJ at our daughters wedding did a super job. He was actively involved in making sure the music went according to her wishes. Throughout the whole evening the music went smoothly and there were no glitches whatsoever. We Thank Mr Mivshek for making the day beautiful for our daughter and her new husband. Highly recommend him for any event.

Words cannot describe how awesome Craig was! He treated me like I was family, brought me drinks and directed us on what to do next.

Unfortunately in the middle of the ceremony, my elderly uncle had a mini stroke. Lucky for him, he was in a room full of nurses, that were able to take care of him until EMS arrived. It was extremely traumatic and without Craig's help I dont know how we could have gotten through it. I willbe forever grateful for his professionalism and ability to continue the ceremony and brighten up the reception after the incident.

Craig was an awesome DJ and amazing person to have by our side. He really went above and beyond.
Thank you very everything Craig!!

Craig could not have been a better DJ. He was friendly, fun and most importantly good at his job. His online tools are easy to use and he is easy to get a hold of if you have a question. I am so happy that we went with him. We also used his uplighting and it looked AMAZING. He is a class act. Highly recommend!

Craig from Grand DJ Entertainment was amazing. Our dance floor was always full from the first song till the lights came up at the end of the night!

We found Craig from our wedding venue as a recommended vendor and from the first call, he was fantastic. He met us at our venue and we walked through the set up and gave us recommendation for services that were INCLUDED in the price!

The online song selection and planning made it easy for everyone. It allowed us to start the process of planning and selecting songs and making changes without any going back and forth- it was all online and no issues if we made 100 changes! It also provided links to songs so we could listen to any selection at any time.

The song request/dedication process was amazing. It allowed us to make personal shout outs to our friends from the DJ and it helped make them feel special.

A week before the wedding we met to review the final list and details. Everything about the process and the experience was easy and everyone loved the wedding! They still talk about it and the proof is in our wedding pictures. Everyone singing, dancing and having a blast.

Highly recommend!

We had a fantastic experience using Grand DJ Entertainment for our wedding. We had a daytime wedding, so at first, we weren't even going to hire a DJ. After meeting with Craig, though, we knew it would be silly to skip out on a DJ. His awesome website allows clients to select lists of "play" and "do not play" songs, as well as a planning form to select songs for the major highlights of the event: cake cutting, bouquet toss, bridal party entrance, etc. Not only was the planning easy and fun, but Craig was AMAZING on our wedding day. Our dance floor was filled the ENTIRE time (and remember, daytime wedding!!). He was extremely professional, but still knew how to keep everyone dancing and having a great time. Whether you're a music lover and want to pick most of your music, or want the DJ to pick every song for you, Grand DJ Entertainment will give you amazing service and make your event fun and memorable. I promise, you will NOT be disappointed!!

Craig did an exceptional job as a DJ and host for the evening. We provided him with relatively little information and he knew what to do. We and our wedding guests were impressed with his professionalism. His website made planning a breeze at a time when we appreciated one less thing to plan.

Dan did an amazing job at our wedding! He made sure to talk with us before our ceremony to make sure everything was in order. He even offered to meet with us again in person. He listened to requests for songs and shot outs that were important to us. Dan was the perfect MC for the night being sure to make all the announcements and timing flowed seamlessly. He even offered to drive us (Bride and Groom) to our hotel when the shuttle left us J Now that is an awesome DJ, above and beyond service! Anyone would be lucky to have him DJ their event.
