Music In Motion will custom-build your event to fit your exact needs and desires while ensuring you and your guests experience a night to remember for many years to come. We have over 20 years of experience in the DJ business and have entertained for as many as 2,000 people to as few as 10. We specialize in Weddings but most certainly entertain at all types of events; from proms to personal graduation parties to backyard functions to corporate events! Each DJ is professional, yet affordable, with the appropriate skills and expertise to perform at your special once-in-a-lifetime event.

MIM specializes in creating wedding receptions that fit your every need and detail; from digital music selections to dazzling lights...all while staying within your budget. Your DJ will work directly with you to cover every element, from the initial planning stages up to the details and coordination with all the vendors on the Big Day itself to ensure everything is seamless and smooth. You will have access to our "online planning tools" that allow you to further tailor your event. Music In Motion will provide you with an evening of flawless fun where you have absolutely no reservations!

We have the largest and most diverse music library you will find among all mobile DJ companies and our music is guaranteed to please everyone's musical tastes. Why? Because we communicate with you in great detail, right down to discussing musical likes & dislikes of each and every client. Another reason is that we have recently upgraded all of our equipment with top-of-the-line products. This is one of our features that most people simply assume with the popularity of mp3 players and playing music from ones' computer. You will hear nothing but crystal clear, rich sound with concert-like quality. Each song will blend perfectly with the next, with no dead air in-between. We can give you a hot-mix show with the hottest new dance tunes if you like and our inventory spans the entire musical spectrum; including Big Band, 50's, Motown, Disco, to Current Rock, R&B, Country, Pop and Dance.

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
We are NOT the typical "corny" or "cheesy" wedding DJ's!! We offer the experience of knowing WHEN to interact and the right amount of interaction needed to keep a dance floor full of energy! Having the amount of experience we do and musical knowledge also allows us to know what songs to play and when--you can't simply go from one song to the next...there is a very finely-tuned skill involved in 'reading-the-crowd' that only comes with many years of experience in wedding receptions!
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Not at all! Since we custom-build your night for you to suit your every need, want and desire you can give us every song you'd like played from start to finish if you desire. Of course we would suggest giving us about 15 or so suggestions and then letting us read your crowd as well as take requests from your guests that evening to keep the dance floor full all night long!
What is your usual attire?
We default to a very appropriate suit and tie...unless it's a black tie affair which we would of course wear a tuxedo. If this will be a themed event we'd love to know so we can dress accordingly as well!
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
We request if you've got the song to please email the mp3 or mail a disc to us so we can load it for you prior to your Big Day. If you don't have it either we will do our best to get the song for you.
How many other DJs do you work with?
I have four total DJ's including myself on staff. All of us have at least 10 years of experience DJing wedding receptions alone.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
We will come out and DJ for 5 minutes if you like....but there is a minimum charge for most events that can be discussed
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Most definitely! Quite often though we can arrange a phone conference that takes care of questions, details, etc. With most clients busy schedules combined with the added stress of planning a wedding reception, an in-person meeting is difficult to arrange....we do not require it on our end but again woudl be happy to arrange one if you'd like.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
No
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Of course! Again, along with the 'full-customization' process this is an item we definitely would like to have from you!
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes...top-of-the-line up-to-date professional sound equipment.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
With a WeddingWire.com referral we will provide a basic lighting package for free (normally a $100.00 value). This consists of one tripod behind the DJ and doesn't involve computerized timing/lighting. It also can be where the lights are setup on the DJ table/speaker stands depending on how the Hall is positioned, etc--whatever works best aesthetically and will allow for the least amount of disruption to those guests who do not want to dance and don't want to be annoyed with lights in their eyes combined with the most amount of focus on the dance floor for those that do want to dance and enjoy a little lighting. These basic lights we bring out to weddings consist of a few lights that are 'soft' colors focused on the dance floor one of which mimics a "mirror ball" effect (basically white spots that spin around on the dance floor). No strobes or flashy lighting to annoy your guests! Our "Upgraded Lighting" is offered at an additional fee and that includes a computerized lighting. This basically transforms your event from a 'standard' wedding reception into more of a 'nightclub' type atmosphere.
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 approximately one hour prior to contract-start time. The client is required to provide a 6ft or 8ft banquet-type table as stated in our contracts.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Not at all--that's for the "Cheesy" and "Corny" Wedding DJ's..which we are not.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We do NOT talk between songs except when necessary....Remember that your DJ is typically the person that is coordinating with the Reception Hall regarding the timing of everything as well as your photographer/videographer (so they aren't outside having a cigarette when we're annoucing your 1st Dance, etc.) and then with you and your Bridal Party so he can annouce your Grand Entrance. He will coordinate your cake cutting and speeches and any prayer/blessing, etc. He will annouce your 1st Dance, Bride/Father, Groom/Mother and any other items that need to be addressed througout the evening.....all the while keeping the energy level up with appropriate dinner music (along with appropriate volume levels...VERY important, especially for your older crowd!) and then keeping your dance floor moving all night long while running through every genre/spectrum of music to hopefully satisfy the extremely diverse crowds that are in attendance. In order to pull all of this off without a hitch and seamlessly you need plenty of experience which we've got!
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We would not resort to "cheese" as most others would..this rarely happens as we have that much experience in reading crowds and knowing what they like/want to hear...but if it did we'd remind guests politely that we do take requests and we'd quickly transition out of the song that 'killed-the-dance-floor' and get another song on to get people back out there.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We do not take any breaks and don't require a meal.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
n/a
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We always have a backup DJ on emergency call.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No
What is your overtime rate?
This is stated in your contract.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
We do have travel fees if we travel over 100 miles each way from the DJ's home. This is discussed prior to the contracting phase so there are no surprises.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
We require 1/2 the contracted amount to lock your date in. The other 1/2 is due one week prior to your event date.

My husband and I hired Music in Motion to DJ our recent wedding. We were so pleased to work with Tim Hicks, the company owner. Tim was responsive to our questions, and checked in with us regularly to see if we needed anything. Although Tim was not the DJ at our wedding, Rich did an amazing job! The evening flowed so smoothly, Rich is a total pro.

We were so pleased with Music in Motion - thank you, Tim and Rich!

Music in Motion provided DJ services for my son's Bar Mitzvah and they definitely made the party amazing! Ricky and his crew were full of energy and kept all of us (children & adults) entertained. They also made the itinerary for the event and made sure we kept to it. Tim Hicks is wonderful to work with to set up the initial arrangements - he was very attentive, checking in with us every month leading up to the party. We used this company for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah 3 years ago and will definitely use them again for future weddings!

We can't say enough good things about Music in Motion. Tim Hicks is an outstanding DJ who listens to your every thought/concern/want/need to truly create a memorable event. Throughout our engagement Tim checked in with us once a month or so to see how things were unfolding - always letting us know he was there for whatever we needed. He is prompt, professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Tim or any of the other DJs at MIM for a wedding or special event! THANK YOU, TIM!!!

We were on a tight budget and my event planner at the reception venue highly recommended I contact Music in Motion. Not only were they the best price quoted out of SEVERAL DJ's, I believe that they are the BEST DJ service in the area! We had the pleasure of working with Tim. He kept us on task and our guests on the dance floor. When it came to selecting vendors, out of literally hundreds, there is always hesitation in the decision making process that makes a bride second guess herself. After speaking to Tim the first time, I knew right away that this was our guy. He reaffirmed that over and over throughout the planning period and especially on the day of! We could not have been happier with his song selection as well as his online planning tools that allowed for us to personally pick several songs that we wanted from his extensive library.
Brides to Be, take it from me and don't waste your time calling other vendors.

Tim did a fantastic job. We have received nothing but compliments about how good he was. Our guests were on the dance floor ALL night!! He knew when the music needed to change up due to lack of dancing and that is exactly what I was looking for. He did such a great job and made the night so much fun.

Planning a wedding in Illinois and looking for a DJ?

This is who you need to hire. Don't price shop. Don't look around. Don't ask for advice. Just hire this group.

I could NOT have been happier with Tim Hicks from Music in Motion. COULD. NOT. HAVE. BEEN. HAPPIER.

Tim was awesome. He was great about responding to every single email I had in the weeks and months leading up to the reception. He was forgiving when I missed deadlines. He was open to new ideas and non-traditional music and locations. When we were at a loss, he came up with an idea that didn't just work for the situation, but that captured the personalities of my husband and myself. He kept things moving, said all of the right things, dressed the part, played all of the requests, and was just all the way around the best decision I made regarding my entire wedding (second only to the husband, of course!). He was professional but fun, played a great mix, and just added awesomeness to the overall party (and ladies, he's got a great smile, too ;) ).

But really, there's nothing bad I can say about my entire experience with Music In Motion. High Quality, Very Responsive, Creative, Great Price, Wide Open to New Things, and Quite Handsome. You'll be kicking yourself if you don't go with them.

Rich worked our wedding on Saturday November 9th of this year and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Very flexible and organized, fulfilled every request that we had and just really made our party. I had many of our guests commenting that the DJ was great and played just the right mix of songs. He nicely mixed up older songs with newer ones to keep everyone on the dance floor dancing all night.

They were also very flexible with playing specific ethnic music that I wanted to play for some of my guests. I provided the music and it was nicely incorporated into the evening.

Definitely recommend their services and wouldn't change anything about our entertainment

We used Tim for our wedding in Lake Geneva, WI. He was great - he was responsive to emails, played a good mix of music that kept everyone dancing, he was reasonably priced, and served as a great MC for our night.

Tim went above and beyond with his professionalism in dealing with our wedding coordinator, who turned out to be very difficult to deal with.

I would definitely recommend Tim/Music in Motion.

I cannot say enough about Music in Motion. The owner, Tim Hicks, helped my husband and I throughout the entire process. Not only did he respond quickly and knowledgeably to all of our messages, but he even checked in periodically if he hadn't heard from us, just to ensure we didn't have any questions. He was incredibly flexible with all of our requests and did all he could to make this detail of our wedding planning simple. He provided us with advice when asked, and reassured us that he was willing to do everything he could to make sure we had what we needed in regards to music. Because music means a lot to both my husband and I this was a huge component to our wedding and Tim really could not have made the process easier on us!

The DJ who was assigned to our wedding day, Ron Johnson, was also fantastic. He kept us on track all night while also giving us our space. He played all of the playlists we created for him while also throwing in some tracks of his own that he knew we'd like based on the lists we provided him. Ron did our ceremony as well our reception and both were seamless. I fully trusted him immediately, even though I hadn't spoken with him before the day-of, because of the amazing service Tim had provided us throughout the previous year and a half I knew Ron had to be just as great. We received a lot of compliments on the DJ-ing and honestly could not have been happier with the service.

Without a doubt I will be recommending Music in Motion to all of my engaged friends!

You want a DJ to enhance your night, surpass your expectations, and most importantly, set the mood for the night. We totally scored by signing MIM as our DJ because our dance floor was packed all night long! Numerous people told us it was the best music they've ever heard played at the wedding. We had DJ Rick and he not only pulled out some original jazz covers of popular songs on the radio for the dinner hour, but he met with us on her personal time to discuss the night, worked with our crazy customized requests, and was incredibly fun to team up with for the wedding night. This company is so professional- the owner checked in with us every month leading up to the wedding to see if we needed anything. We were very lucky to come across them and will be passing them on to all of our friends getting married in the future (we have already been to two other weddings with them!). A 5 star company for sure.

Music in Motion was absolutely amazing!! Both my sister and I had them for our weddings (two years apart) and we couldn't have been happier. She had Tim, I had Rich. Prior to the wedding, I sent the DJ exactly who was going to be announced at the reception, how to say their names, an itinerary for the night (cocktail hour, introductions, cake cutting, dinner, first dances, general dancing, etc.) with songs that corresponded with each piece of the night. I highly recommend doing this!

As for our "general dancing", I gave the DJ a list of songs, which included country, pop, hip-hop and the typical 'wedding' music, and a do not play list (which he honored). The thing I was most nervous about was how on earth that was going to turn out and how the DJ would be able to keep everyone on the dance floor while accommodating mine and my husband's different tastes in music. I was shocked! He did an AMAZING job of reading the crowd and playing both types of music throughout the whole night. When the crowd would thin he would play a slow song, and they play one of those songs that everybody loves immediately following the slow song, to keep them all on the dance floor. I hate the DJ's that play too many slow songs and he did not do this. He also did an amazing job of mixing the songs and making a super smooth transition from one to another.

At the end of the day, your guests aren't going to remember your chair covers or your centerpieces. They are going to remember how much FUN they had dancing! I received so many compliments from my guests afterward about how great the music was and what a great time they had. Tim (the owner) only hires the best and you can bet that no matter who you get, they will not disappoint. I highly recommend Music in Motion!

We used Tim Hicks for our wedding on 6/22/13 and he did an absolutely amazing job! He was very professional, polite, and accommodating from day 1 and carried that all the way through to the reception.

We had so many compliments about how the dance floor was never empty and how great the music was! We stayed away from the ‘must play list’ and focused on the ‘Do Not Play’ list and found that worked out perfectly. Tim does this every weekend, knows what he’s doing, and knows how to feel out the room for the right song to play. We are very glad we let him do his thing because he proved that he is very good at what he does! Not only were the song selections and timings good, but he cross-faded most of the music so the songs ran right from one into the next. Most people might not realize this skill since a lot of wedding djs don't do it, but it’s one of the small things that kept the music going and kept the dance floor filled the entire night.

On top of the music being great, he also was a wonderful host during the limited times that he did talk. His introductions of the wedding party were fun and entertaining, very welcoming for the speakers, and even had a very nice smoothness when making other announcements throughout the night (ie ‘the photobooth is now open’) by fading the music and not having any uncomfortable silences with people on the floor. We even asked him to give scoring updates for the Blackhawks Stanley Cup Finals game going on at the same time and he found good ways to sneak in snip-its of ‘Chelsea Dagger’ each time they scored and after they won the game. Very accommodating to everything we asked.

We have already given his info away to several people who attended and wanted him for their own event and promise you that he will not disappoint if you use him for yours. Easily the best dj I’ve seen at a wedding!

We were SO happy with Music in Motion. Our DJ, Ron, was a pleasure to work with. He introduced himself to myself and my husband right away and told us to tell him if we needed anything at all. All of the music we requested was played, and he even had some fun and played the horn when the Blackhawks won the same at the end of the night (we are huge Chicago Blackhawks fans :) )
During our "last dance" my husband was nowhere to be found (he was walking out some family members) and Ron, without being asked, replayed the song and got everyone out on the dance floor with us. I still cry thinking about how great that last song ended up being!
GREAT experience!

I used Music in Motion with a recommendation from my caterer. Although we only needed a DJ for dancing, and a microphone for the toasts, the DJ arrived before the entire event to make sure he didn't disrupt our guests. He was professionally dressed, and helped get the guests moving around to the right place.
He played music that everyone liked (everyone danced, even people who say they never dance!) and knew how to throw in a few good slow songs to keep it romantic. I was very satisfied with DJ Ron and Music in Motion in general.

Working with Tim to plan the wedding was awesome. He was always checking in via email just to say hi and see how everything was going. Our dj for the night was Jimmy Styx. I can't say enough about him. He was AMAZING and kept the dance floor packed!!! He played all our requests and all I asked him was to keep the dance floor full even if it meant not playing songs we wanted. He really kept us on a great time line. At one point we were running behind he told me not to worry we would catch up and we did.I have a close family member who is a DJ and he came up to me half way through the night and said I really like this DJ he's one of the better ones out there!!! I will be using Music In Motion again in the future!! Thank you so much for making my day wonderful!!!

Music In Motion was great with communication up to the day. They checked in every two weeks to see if we needed anything or had any questions. At the reception, the DJ was making sure we were aware of the order of things and made sure we were ready for the next event. Our DJ read the crowd and played the perfect selection of music all the way till the end of the party! My 70yr old grandma even commented on how great our dj was. It was such a perfect day and Music in Motion made the night a fairytale!

I worked with Tim to get everything set up for the wedding and had DJ Ron do our ceremony and reception. Everything about these two was very professional and a job very well done! Ron kept the momentum going all night and everyone had a great time. He was very responsive to my questions leading up to our big day. Tim was also great to work to get all the paperwork and behind-the-scenes information set up.

Highly recommend for any event!

We had Rich Maggio from MIM DJ our wedding this past weekend and have nothing but good things to say. So many of our guests commented on how great the music was and how much fun they had -- the dance floor was packed the entire night! He was very easy to work with and was very helpful in the planning/selection process of music for the reception. The owner, Tim Hicks, is also great with communication and sent us emails every few months or so leading up to the wedding just to check in and see if we had any questions. I am recommending Music in Motion to everyone!

We had Tim DJ our wedding from Music in Motion and he was great. He was able to keep everyone dancing for the entire reception and all of our guests were amazed how good he is. Besides controlling the music, he helped me and my bride with where we needed to be throughout the night. Tim worked really well with our photographer, and Lynette from D'Andreas.
Tim also communicated with us from the time we booked him all the way to the wedding. He would send periodic emails to help us out and to remind us to go to his website to pick our first dance songs and other songs that we might want played.
I would absolutely recommend him for any type of event!

After the wedding everyone told us how much fun they had and how amazing our DJ was!! Our wedding just wouldn't have been the same had we used anyone else. He was a DJ that we booked and from day 1 I could just relax as he instilled so much confidence in me in his skills and he delivered on everything he promised!!

Tim checked in on me about once a month after we booked him just to say hello and see if there was anything we needed from him at the time. Sometimes I had things for him and other times I could just say nothing for now, but thanks for checking in!

We had several special requests at the last minute and Tim was happy to do everything we wanted!

One thing I really appreciated was that it was getting close to the end of the night and we had a few "must play" songs that hadn't been played yet because they were on the slower side and the crowd was having so much fun dancing to more of the dance tunes. He found me and asked if I wanted to slow it down a bit to get those songs in or to keep going with the dance vibe. I was happy to just keep the dancing party going, but appreciated that he asked!

If you need a DJ company that is professional and caring, Music in Motion should be your choice! They were always available by email/phone and offered advice with helping us fine tune every detail for our reception.
Our dance floor was packed, our requests were honored and the coordination with the photograher and wedding planner with Music in Motion was seamless.

Highly recommended!

Our DJ Rich was great, very professional. We had several pre-wedding phone calls with him to talk about music and style we wanted for the night. He had great suggestions without being pushy. Took requests from friends and family that were appropriate and gave us the ability to make a Must Play, Do Not Play and Play if Possible list.

We saw our DJ at a friends wedding and couldnt pass him by. There was no alcohol served at the wedding and the dance floor was PACKED!! We booked Tim Hicks as our DJ. I couldnt tell you how many people were suprised by the number of people on the dance floor at our wedding. Tim did a great job at feeling the crowd and playing the right songs at the right time. All of my guests completmented Tim throught the night. I would recommend Tim to all couples that like to dance!

I loved working with Tim from Music in Motions! We were able to go here him at a wedding. He talked to us and made us feel comfortable right away! He also had lots of experience about 10 years in the business. He would also email us every month up to the wedding to see if we had any questions or needed help with anything! He played the music we exactly wanted and helped us create the atmosphere we wanted at our wedding. If a song did not go over well on the dance floor, he changed it imediately! I would defitnately recommend him to anyone else who needs a DJ.

We were referred to Music In Motion through our caterers (Courtyard Catering in Burlington, WI - also very good), and we were so glad that we went with this company. Tim Hicks was very easy to work with from the very beginning. He offered us a nice price for the quality of his services. We communicated several times back and forth over email; he was quickly responsive and attentive to and followed through with all of the details and unique requests that we made. While he wasn't intrusive at all, he was highly invested in helping to make our evening go just as we planned, and even exceeded our expectations. He checked in with us several times throughout the reception to ensure that we were happy, and was flexible with last minute changes that happened (as I'm sure happen at most weddings). We got a lot of feedback from our guests who expressed that this was one of the best wedding receptions they had been to - I believe it had a lot to do with Tim's warmth, energy, professionalism and skill. Thank you Tim!

Tim was great, very responsive on any questions we had. He would send emails every so often to see how things were going and to make sure everything was good. We had Jimmy as our DJ and most of our playlist selection was played. However we did have Lady Gaga on the no play list (Groom's request) and it was the first song that was played. I have to give him credit as he was flexible when there were quite a few wedding party changes. We were updating the list just prior to being announced. Overall he made sure we stayed on track and did play the first dance song that each of us had picked for the other. It was nice that he also explained to our guests what we had done as well. He was professional and very nice to work with. They also were willing to use a song we provided for our grand entrance into the reception which they did not have in their own collection, and also a song recorded by the groom's late stepfather for the mother-son dance, which made mom cry.

DJ Tim Hicks was absolutely wonderful to work with! He brought professionalism an upbeat attitude to make our night great! He followed up every few weeks to see how our planning was going and if he could help us out. He was an absolute pleasure to work with from mixing up a few special songs to our liking, setting up the songs perfectly for our Irish Dancing surprise and most importantly got every age group to the dance floor. Thank you 'MIM' for Providing professional, kind, caring and excellent service.

We added songs at the last minute (an hour before the ceremony) and the DJ was able to incorporate them with no problem. Music at the reception was non-stop and kept people out on the dance floor. All of our requests were played. The DJ was super friendly and laid back. Couldn't have asked for more.
