Memory Makers and Dave Woll are simply the best. They have been doing this for years and it shows why! Truly experts and professionals! A DJ does a lot more than just "play music" during your event. And the "more" is where Memory Makers and Dave Woll stand out above the rest! Our wedding was a blast and most all of our guests stayed till the very end because Dave Woll kept the party going and the crowd entertained! That is the most important element for a successful wedding! Thank you Memory Makers and Dave Woll!

Memory Makers is an amazing company! We had gone to one of their showcases where they have each DJ show you some of there personality. Which was great that way you knew who you were getting when you chose them. We booked with them and then it went kind of quiet. Which was fine because we were a year out. But getting towards the date of the wedding we did have a lot of trouble reaching them which was disconcerting. We knew they were great we just got a little worried because their admins weren't getting back to us. They did eventually get back to us and our DJ that we picked got with us to discuss everything we wanted what styles we liked and pretty much any detail that we needed. We picked Andre and he was absolutely AMAZING! He made all the worrying from earlier disappear with just one phone call. He was very accommodating which is hard for all the music my husband and i wanted to be at our wedding. We needed everything from Salsa and bachata to 90s hip hop, boy bands and country music. It was a very eclectic mix we needed and he made sure he had it all and he did a seamless job just knowing when to play what. He was wonderful. He was available at all times day and night to make sure if i forgot something (Which i did) i could text him to make sure he had the song handy. The only issue i had was a communication problem with the admin but once it was Andre doing all the talking it was perfect! He was worth every dime!

We chose Dave, the owner, for our wedding. Overall, our day was perfect. However, I do not recommend this vendor. 3 reasons:
*Response times to emails are incredibly poor. You have to call repeatedly and email to get ahold of anyone. This was prior to the wedding (payments, planning..no reply) and after (I reached out to the company in various ways to express my concerns before writing a review, no reply)
*Also the photo booth is definitely not worth it. We reserved the "CUBE". That cool new light up photo booth. But the day of, Memory makers brought an old crappy booth (with the draw curtain, old style). We worked with it. However, it was set up too high and I could barely get in the picture (5'2") Most of our pictures are not centered.
*DJ forgot my bouquet toss song. Standing up in the spotlight, I had to call out that they were not playing the right song. Easy to laugh off but still, "You had one job"

Working with Memory Makers before the wedding went well, but where they really shined was on the day of the wedding. Our DJ, Dale, was prompt, professional, and on-point with his organization and attention to detail. He ran the before dancing portion of the wedding wonderfully-- So many guests commented on the incredible flow of the night. As for when the dancing started, our (very large) dance floor was never empty! The music was perfectly chosen, all our "do not play" requests were honored, and Dale did a phenomenal job of reading the crowd to choose the just-right next song. We still receive compliments of the dancing portion of the reception. We highly recommend DJ Dale for your wedding reception!

We had Tom from Memory Makers for our wedding and it was absolutely perfect! We had so many compliments from our guests on our DJ. He had the tough task of trying to keep an audience engaged who was on pins and needles because the Cubs had to win that night to go to the World Series, and it was fantastic. My only markdowns were I had a lot of trouble getting a hold of the company prior, I believe they said they had email issues but still could use a little more organization on the office side. However if you can be a little relaxed about the responsiveness, it's well worth it in the end to go with Memory Makers.

We won a free DJ at one of their showcases at the DoubleTree in Mundelein which I was super excited about. We weren't sure exactly who we wanted but we ended up selecting Dale. In the back of my mind, I was a little worried that because the DJ service was free we might not get the best quality or get a lot of attention leading up to the big day but I couldn't have been more wrong about that. Dale was amazing! He looks like such a young kid, I was shocked at how mature and professional he was in all of our interactions. He went above and beyond and even edited some of the songs we wanted to make sure that they fit and flowed for what we were looking for. Our experience with Memory Makers was great and if you are looking for a great DJ who takes his job very seriously - I highly recommend choosing Dale!

Initially, we had a very hard time getting in contact with memory makers. When we finally did, we set up an appointment to sit down and meet with the owner, Dave, however when we showed up for that appointment he wasn't there, the office was completely closed so we tried calling him but kept getting the voicemail. A few days later he returned our call and apologized and we set up another appointment.. We showed up but again, he didn't. Again, we tried calling but kept getting the answering machine. I cant recall the actual timeline but it was about 2 weeks before we heard from him again and we eventually were able to meet up. We were very skeptical and very nervous about the actual dj pulling the same thing on us for our wedding day - however the actual dj we had for our wedding day was amazing and much more professional. We obviously have mixed reviews in our case because the owner through us for a loop in the beginning but our day of dj was awesome.
