Stevie D was totally awesome to work with. He was easy going and totally open to ideas and helping us with everything we could possibly need to make our wedding amazing. He even brought us our favorite beverages when he knew we would be busy and wouldn't be able to make it to the bar. I heard for days from people that attended our wedding how awesome it was and how the music was perfect. He listened to what everyone wanted and made everyone have a good time!

I've worked with many DJs in the past and I knew from the first time I worked with Stevie Dee that he would be my wedding DJ whenever I got married. And he was!

Steve was an amazing DJ for my wedding in July. His professionalism and organization is astounding! I have been at plenty of weddings where the DJs were horrible and extremely corny. Steve was amazing and the music he played really made everyone get out on the dance floor. He has a great reputation for being an amazing DJ. I have been recommending this company to everyone newly engaged couple I know. YOU WILL LOVE THIS COMPANY...GUARANTEE!!

Stevie Dee did an amazing job as our DJ. My husband and I felt completely comfortable with him and his service from the time we met him. The online system for selecting music was user friendly and very helpful. The day of our wedding Stevie Dee found us right after arriving at the reception to see if we needed anything. He was very professional and everyone that talked with him had nothing but great things to say. All of our wedding guests continue to rave about how great our DJ was and what a great party it was! The JAM CAM that he made was a wonderful addition to our wedding. We absolutely love watching it over and over... it truly captured all of the highlights. We would highly recommend Stevie Dee and Operation Getdown to anyone getting married.

Stevie Dee was my DJ and he was more than I could ever have hoped for! He kept everything on schedule and made sure the wedding went smoothly! He checked in with us throughout the night to make sure everything was going great! My guests were also raving about how great he was. He made sure that he had all the songs we had asked for and got there early to set up and make sure everything was ready! He was amazing!

Stevie Dee was one of the BEST choices we made for our wedding day, he was not only the DJ for the wedding but truly is a master of ceremonies. He made both my husband and I feel so at ease from the very first meeting until the day of the wedding. Everything was perfect, he knows exactly how to read the crown and kept the dance floor going all night. He also gives a special touch to those special moments. I cannot tell you all the compliments we received the night of the wedding and that we are still receiving. I would definitely recommend Operation Getdown DJs to anyone! Thank you so much Stevie for making our wedding perfect!

Stevie Dee did an absolutely amazing job at our reception! We've had so many compliments about the music selection at our reception. He definitely felt the vibes from the crowd perfectly and played music to compliment it. The dance floor was full ALL night! He was very professional and was like a Second wedding coordinator to ensure the reception flowed smoothly. The Jam Cam covered all the main points for our reception and is fun to watch and show our guests. Stevie made sure that we were comfortable all night and walked around taking music requests from our guests. We would HIGHLY reccommend him for anyone in the area looking for a DJ. He is the best in the business hands down!

We are STILL getting rave reviews about DJ Stevie Dee from our family and friends that attending the wedding. He was professional, likable, entertaining, and kept the party going for over 3 hours. He provided music for our ceremony and for the dancing reception. He also MCd the toasts during dinner. Throughout the planning process, we were able to keep track of our songlist, and other wedding details on his easy-to-use website. He also accommodated us by Skyping to do our first "interview" to see if we liked him, and again to talk about the final details before the wedding (we were planning an IL wedding, but currently live in SC). Overall, I'm so glad Stevie Dee was recommended to us. If I had to choose all over again, I would still choose him and Operation Getdown DJs.

Stevie Dee of Operation Getdown was fantastic! He was very professional and knows what he is doing! He did whatever needed to be done to make the night perfect. A DJ is more than someone to play music, they basiclly run the show as far as introductions, first dances, cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss, etc. Stevie has a lot of experience and our night was flawless. We cannot thank him enough for his excellent service and how easy he was to work with. We would recommend him to anyone and everyone looking for a DJ! He kept the dance floor busy all night and everyone had a blast! Thanks again!

You can not book a better DJ than Stevie Dee! Everyone at our wedding loved him, I had two people who are about to get married this AUG tell me they wish they didn't already sign a contract with their DJ because they would much rather have him. He knew exactly what songs to play to keep everyone on the dance floor. Also, the up-lighting makes your room look amazingggggg!

Stevie was incredible at not only being the DJ, but making sure the timeline I provided was followed all night. He constantly checked in with my husband and I, brought us drinks immediately after the ceremony for our hour of pictures, was patient, was polite, and an amazing personality for the night. The dance floor was packed from the minute the groom/mother dance ended until the very last dance at the end of the night. He read the crowd greatly. So many unique ideas that he ran by us before the event made his service memorable. Could not have been happier with a DJ! The lighting (not extra uplighting-just his stand itself) was fun on the dance floor and the music was exactly what we asked for. We even got to make a list of "must play songs" and "don't play this song". We LOVED Stevie Dee with Operation Getdown!

I can't thank Stevie Dee enough for making mine and my husbands reception run by so smoothly and flawlessly. He had my friends and family all talking about what a wonderful job he did. He has the master of ceromonies job perfected and I felt completely confident in his decisions in running the night. He was very professional in all of our meetings and knew exactly what points to cover to ensure the night would run by perfectly. He allowed me and my husband to feel relaxed so that we could enjoy our day to its fullest! That is a priceless feeling!! Thank you so much Stevie Dee!!

He took all requests for music and has a great light set up as well. All of the music selected worked wonderfully to get everyone dancing and the transitions were so smooth! He got to know me and my husband and mixed music that also fit our tastes as well. The Jam Cam is awesome too! He is very timely and informed. DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS DJ!!

They were very organized and kept everyone dancing all night! I would definitely recommend Operation Getdown to anyone who needs a DJ!

Operation Getdown is the the best DJ service in the area. Stevie Dee is very proffesional, he takes care of everything and leaves you with no worries for the day of the wedding. I knew from the day of our initial meeting with Stevie Dee that he was going to do a great job at my wedding. Stevie Dee ran my entire reception and kept everything on time with a great flow. Stevie took care of the bride and groom and wedding party all night, providing us with drinks and making sure we were happy with how everything was going, down to the temperature in the room! Operation Getdown not only provides a DJ service but also steps in as a wedding coordinator at the reception. I am so impressed with operation getdown and would recommend them to anyone in need of a DJ.

Stevie d is the best dj! He was recommended to me by a friend and after our first meeting I knew he was going to provide the entertainment for our wedding. He is extremely knowledgeable, reliable, and prompt with feedback. I also wanted to honor my parents 30th anniversary at our wedding and he was equipped with ideas. He is up to date, comes to meetings with his iPad, and his website is user friendly for his clients to select their wedding music and timeline of events. he knows how to keep the party going and has a good feel for the crowd. If he feels he can change the music a bit to get more people dancing, he does! Our dance floor was packed until the end. We have received many compliments even two months after our wedding saying how great he was. Not to mention, we loved watching our jam cam that he does to capture all the important parts of the reception!

Our DJ Stevie was amazing! He has a great personality and really made my husband and I feel comfortable and at ease. A DJ can make or break a wedding and Stevie really made ours a hit. He always made sure we had everything we needed(including drinks), and he even floored our parents when he brought each of them drinks as well. His talent for putting music together and reading crowds is absolutely astonishing. He made sure to listen to all of our ideas and he had wonderful suggestions for us as well. Everyone at our wedding kept telling us how much they loved our DJ, and all of my cousins who will be getting married soon, asked for Stevie's information. Hands down the best DJ out there!

Stevie is a fantastic DJ! From our first meeting with him until the wedding, he was professional, easy to contact, flexible, organized, thoughful and so much more. The DJ for us, was one of the most important parts of the wedding. We have been to weddings that the DJ was terrible and all we could think is "I hope that doesn't happen to us"...let's face it...the DJ plays a big part in how much fun your wedding is. This is why we are so glad we choose Stevie Dee! I really never realized how much a DJ does, he sets the whole tone of the wedding. As soon as we walked into our reception venue, Stevie had everything under control. He brought us drinks and checked on us to see if we needed anything. All of our guests keep telling us how great our DJ was and how much fun they had at our wedding. In fact one of my bridesmaids has decided to hire Stevie for her upcoming wedding! I can't wait to go to her wedding because I know it will fun if Stevie is the DJ!!!

You went above and beyond at our wedding reception. From the perfect positioning of the gobo, to bringing the bridal party beverages, checking in every 15 minutes, best master of ceremonies, great play list, professional, and thoughtful when you played my brother in laws recorded song from his wedding. And most of all the jam cam! Everything was exceptional!!!

Getting us drinks, making sure the night was going well so far checking on the flow of the pictures he was there to serve us no matter what. He made it a point to come to me for the pre-wedding meetings. He has just about every piece of music out there and if not, he had no problems getting a few from me. Everyone at my reception commented on how wonderful he was. I could not imagine my wedding and reception with another DJ. Operation Getdown was a perfect choice for me and I'm sure he would be the perfect choice for anyone.

This was the best DJ ever!!!!!!! I have gone to many weddings as well as stand up in many. Operation Getdown DJ's got the party jumpin'! Our guests never left the dance floor! The lights set up was great and totally set the mood for a fun filled evening. He was clear on what he was saying and made sure we had all the directions we needed for the night. He kept the important things on task such as cake cutting, first dances, and tossing of the bouquet/garter. He kept checking on us through out the evening and reminded us that if there was anything that we needed, not to hesitate to ask! Operation Getdown DJ's made our wedding reception a blast, and we cannot thank them more for making that happen!!!! My husband and I HIGHLY reccommend Operation Getdown DJ's for ANY event you're planning!!!!!

To all brides looking for an excellent DJ:

Look no further than Operation Getdown! I met with 6 different DJs, with various price ranges, and Stevie Dee was by far the best of the best. I must admit, I was a little skeptical at first because judging by his picture online, he seemed so young (sorry, Stevie), and his price was a bit more than I had originally intended on spending. As soon as I met with him, though, I knew that he was worth the extra money. From the very first meeting, Stevie was nothing but professional. He got me to talk about my family and my husband's family- where they were from, what their personalities were like, what sort of music they liked. He asked questions about what my husband and I do for jobs, where we met, etc- and he took notes the whole time, writing down anything that might be helpful to him when running our reception. And this was before he was even hired! I was impressed with how attentive he was to hearing about what our needs were right away- most of the other DJs I met with were more interested in telling me about their equipment, their songs, their policies.
In preparation for the wedding, Stevie was extremely responsive and answered all of our questions and concerns. Everything was on his webpage- it was easy to navigate, and we were able to request all of the songs we wanted or didn't want- not just the ones that he already had in his music library (which was quite extensive to begin with).
The day of the wedding, it was a huge relief to know that Stevie had the entire reception under control. He was our MC from start to finish- he checked in with us every 15-20 minutes during and right after dinner to make sure we had everything we needed and to give us updates on what was coming next. He went around and gathered requests from the wedding party and the parents' tables before the dancing began. He was adept at reading the crowd- knowing what songs to play when, and how to make a multi-generational crowd happy with the music. Our dance floor was PACKED, the whole evening- from start to finish (and if you've ever been to Dinolfo's, that dance floor is HUGE). I have never been to a wedding with that many people on a dance floor. After the wedding, the number one compliment that I received was that our DJ was awesome/so professional/excellent/knowledgeable. I have not received a negative feedback about Stevie yet, and I don't think that I ever will.
To summarize- Operation Getdown might be a little more than what you are looking to spend on a DJ, but you will get everything you ever dreamed of for that price- including a worry-free reception. And it is true what people say- the number one thing your guests will remember is the party at the reception- the music, the dancing, etc. You want a DJ you can trust- and Stevie Dee (and Operation Getdown) is that DJ! Call him soon to set up a meeting, and you will see what I mean. Professional from start to finish, and your guests will rave about the reception afterward!

Thanks, Stevie Dee!

Operation GetDown DJs provides professional quality service. With his interactive website it helped me to completely personalize my reception and coordinate a time frame for things. The emcee skills were elegant and professional and they did a good job of helping everything run smoothly and according to the time frame I had chosen. The dancing portion of the evening was awesome! The website allows you to choose "must play" songs, which is a nice touch, and he also came to the head table for requests. Both meetings beforehand were well organized and efficient and I felt very comfortable with how everything would go! I would definitely recommend this dj service to a friend!

Future Brides,

When it comes to finding a DJ for your wedding, there is no question that Stevie Dee is the best in the industry. He not only plays great music for the reception, but he directs everything that will be happenning to make your wedding day go as smoothly and entertaining as possible. He gives you a login username on his website that allows you to request songs, type in the timeline of the wedding, and a planning sheet , so there is no room for error. He meets with you twice to make sure both him and the bride and groom are comfortable. He is such a great person and loves what he does. He is young and upbeat and knows how to entertain all ages. Unlike other DJs, he makes a seven minute video (Jam Cam) that briefly shows different parts of the wedding day! :) It was so nice to see our video the weekend of the wedding because pictures and wedding video take so much time. There is no one else better than Steve to entertain your guests. He has worked mine and my sister's weddings and we were so blown away! I wouldn't trust anyone else to be there on such a huge day! You will not be disappointed! :)

Stevie Dee at Operation Getdown was so instrumental in the flow and atmosphere of our wedding that we cannot think of one negative thing to say about our service. From our first consultation with him to the last dance of the night, he provided us with his utmost attention and care. He was our master of ceremonies and kept the night moving smoothly with great dinner music. Once the dancing began, we could not believe how packed our dance floor was at all times! He kept the energy going and had a great mix of music that kept everyone happy. Out of all our vendors, we are most pleased with Operation Getdown's service and would use him again in a heartbeat! Thank you Stevie Dee!

I cannot say enough great things about Operation Getdown DJs. From the time we signed our contract to the very end of the wedding night, Steve made sure that everything ran smoothly and on time! He even took the time to meet the other venders and make sure everyone was on the same page. Because of him, our reception was perfect and we did not have to worry about one thing. We truly enjoyed ourselves the entire night, without ever having to think about what was suppose to happen next! He kept the dance floor jam packed the entire night, and made a perfect celebration for our wedding day!

Stevie Dee at Operation Getdown DJs was an exceptionally great person to work with. We had originally booked a D.J at another company and things fell through. We were bummed out we had lost a key part of our wedding. We were recommend Operation Getdown DJs, and I must say, it was a smart choice to take this advice. We were not let down by Operation Getdown DJs. Within the first week of us deciding to go with them, we had been in contact with Stevie Dee more times than we had with the first DJ we booked, and we had them booked for close to a year! We were allowed to choose our own music as well as let him decide what to play. Everything he played was excellent and set the mood for our wedding perfectly. My wife and I truly appreciate how well he coordinated things during the reception between the photographer, videographers, and reception hall. It was a huge stress relief! For the last three days, and we’ve only been married three days, we have received many compliments about the music, his professionalism, and the overall job he did. We highly recommend Operation Getdown DJs. Thanks Stevie Dee!

We used Stevie Dee from Operation Getdown for our June 5th wedding. We absolutely loved him and so did all of our guests!!! I am still getting complements on the music and how nice he was. He had awesome uplighting and created a custom gobo to match our invitations. I loved how organized he was and how he had answers to all of my questions. I interviewed A LOT of DJs for my wedding and no one compares to him. The music was great all night and he really kept people on the dance floor. I am a huge Britney Spears fan and he was able to create this Britney mash up to play at the reception and it was such a hit!! He goes above and beyond and I would recommend him to anyone. You will not be disappointed!!

Operation Getdown was absolutely phenomenal throughout the entire wedding process. DJ Stevie Dee was amazing and really helped to create an awesome atmosphere at the reception. He ensured that all events were on time and went smoothly. He was not only our DJ but very much our wedding coordinator. We could not have asked for a better DJ and would recommend him to ANYONE!

Steve was fabulous. He worked hard to make our reception personalized and one that everyone could enjoy. Steve was easy to get a hold of and understood what kind of atmosphere we wanted to create. He didn't take center stage, but was available whenever we needed anything. Steve took over all of the organizational details so that our families didn't need to run around figuring them out, and could instead relax and enjoy the day! I would easily recommend Operation Getdown for any brides!

Operation getdown is be far the best dj service in Chicago. I would highly recommend Stevie-D to any of my family and friends. From the first meeting with Steve he was so helpful and took notes on all We envisioned for our reception. He put forth more of an effort than any other dj we met with and the results were amazing.
Steve went above and beyond what I thought any normal dj would do. What I liked the most was that he was in charge and on top of everything at the reception. He made sure everyone was in the right places at the right times, including our photographer, bridal party, and family. He checked on me, my husband, and our parents to make sure everything was going good throughout the night. My reception wouldn't have gone so smooth if it wasn't for him. He defiantly made it so my husband and I could relax and just have fun through the night.

Stevie D is hands down the best and most dedicated dj that you could ask for. He is so professional and personable. Instead of just asking you about songs, he gets to know you as a couple. He also asks about personalities of everyone in your family and bridal party to add personal touches! There is absolutely nothing we would have changed! You're nuts not to hire him :) He made our wedding day extra special and memorable!

Stevie Dee is a no brainier MUST USE for any function that needs a dj service. I even hesitate using the term "dj" to describe stevie dee. He is like a mini wedding planner on the side for you too, and if he is involved in your day you can be assured that your day will run smoothly. Steve will do just about anything you can for ya. He is very prompt on answering any emails/phone calls and the most professional person I've met. He asked for a lot of information that you just wouldn't expect a dj to take care of or pay attention to. He wrote down a lot of our vendors, their numbers and who to contact incase something wasnt running smoothly for the day. The night of our wedding he gave a very professional short speech to our whole wedding party, that he basically was here to take care of us and anything we needed for the night. If we had any problems we were to contact him and he followed up to get it taken care of. One example was the temp in the room was too hot or cold I forget and he contacted who he needed to at the reception location and got that switched right away. He also checked in every X amount of time with the head table to assure we didnt need anything. During cocktail hours he brought me and my groom our drink of choice and always checked to make sure it was full if wanted, so we could mingle with our guests. I couldnt have been any happier with his service. He also offers amazing uplighting (I think his sister company maybe be KaitRose uplighting). He came up with such unique and cool ideas for our wedding day to make ours stand out from just an average reception. If we came up with an idea, he'd build on it to make it better, and then even keep going to build on that idea. I honestly cannot express how happy we were to have Steve for our dj. So many people complimented us on how exceptional our dj was, and how he had so many different mixes that what they are used to hearing. Steve is truly so talented at what he does that in no way shape or form will you be disappointed. To end my reivew I'd like to put it as simple as this of how great steve's work is. The night we got engaged we both agreed 2 non negotiable things for our wedding. It would be an open bar, and Stevie Dee would be our dj. My sister took it a step further and planned her wedding date around his few open available Saturdays left for 2012! I dont know how many people would be willing to do that for a vendor, but they have to be good!

Stevie Dee was amazing. He had everyone on the dance floor the entire night. Everyone had a great time and couldn't stop talking about how much fun they had and how great the DJ was with playing great music. Stevie was very personable and made sure everything we wanted had been incorporated. I am a very organized, need to micro-manage everything type person and he allowed me to do that. He is flexible with how you want things done and helps with ideas I had never thought of. My husband and I couldn't have picked a better DJ! Many people have come up to us to ask us who he was because they want to use him for their wedding.

Steve is the BEST in the wedding industry. You are making a huge mistake not hiring Operation Getdown DJs for your wedding! Our guests loved our DJs and wanted his info to have at their weddings next year because he got the party started and maintained it all night!! Steve has a true gift at what he does! I would have paid double to have him at my wedding reception. He was worth every penny and more!

Stevie Dee was outstanding in functioning not only as our dj, but as our coordinator for the flow of our reception. It was a worry-free evening knowing that Stevie Dee was handling everything for us, we could truly enjoy our reception. Thank you!

I have known StevieD with Operation Getdown for almost 10 years, he has DJ'd everything from my high school dances and proms to now my wedding and he has only gotten better! He is beyond professional and extremely flexible, not to mention his sweet equipment. I received endless compliments at my wedding from our guests about StevieD and everyone said the music was fantastic and he kept our dance floor crowded all night. I'll never forget when he turned on pink "heart lights" that lit up the ceiling and all our 100 guests awed at the same time. He made my wedding reception perfect and I will continue to highly recommend him to every bride who wants to have a successful reception!!

His services are great for the price and is willing to go to some lengths to satisfy customs requests. If you are looking for a fun, but professional DJ, Stevie Dee is for you.

I thought Stevie D was great. Although I think we paid way too much money. Most DJ's are around $700-$900 but we liked him and thought he was great. One thing is I don't remember nearly half the songs we picked were played. That is the only dissappointment we had.

Steve can handle anything with professionalism, tact, and flow. You can really tell you enjoys what he does and it comes easy to him.
There were no akward "whats next moments." He was well prepaing and organized in every aspect and catered to our every need. He had a great equipment setup, a 200+ guest count wedding and I maybe saw 20 people at most sitting down at one time. The music and dancing was amazing. I would hire him again in a instant cause he was worth every dollar, he makes the party.

For such a young DJ, Stevie was more experienced and professional than many that have been in the profession for years. Stevie was very detail oriented and even played songs that enhanced our wedding table game he suggested. We played the game where the tables have to sing a song to get you to kiss. After the tables sang the song, Stevie had already thought on his toes and had it cued to play already! We got many comments on this detail. People loved it. Stevie was even detailed to the point where he asked our colors and wore a tie or color scheme that would not clash and would go along with out wedding party. Stevie talked to our photographer from Studio One (which I also highly recommend) to coordinate details. Stevie brought us drinks after our outdoor ceremony, going well above and beyond my expectations for a DJ. Stevie even had a rose that he gave my husband to give me during our first dance. Stevie's rates and services are very affordable and worth every penny! He keeps in regular contact with brides in terms of bridal party entrances, prop or song ideas, and last minute details. I never had a problem contacting him, and he even met us at a local Starbucks twice to sit down and consult. Stevie's wealth of knowledge of business and music is extraordinary. His equipment is very current and he is always seeming to find the latest trends. I would highly recommend Stevie and his exceptional services to all brides!

Stevie Dee from Operation Get Down was fantastic. We would recommed him to anyone that is looking for a great DJ. He knows his business,he knows music and was very professional. He was the most professional of all the DJ's we met and interviewed. Stevie Dee was very personable and was helpful and accomodating throughout the entire process. During the reception he kept the music going and he knew how to keep the dance floor full and hopping. Stevie Dee was very attentive to my husband and I and made sure we had everything we needed from the time we arrived to the time we left at the end of the reception. He worked very well with the reception hall staff and with our guests. We can not say enough about Stevie Dee and how wonderful and professional he was. We would definitely hire him again and would whole heartedly recommend him.

We used Operation Getdown DJs for our wedding a year and a half ago and we still recommend Stevie Dee to anyone we know getting married. From our first meeting with him, we knew we didn’t have to look anywhere else and his price was no more than any other DJs. He was professional and answered all questions that I had. He was flexible with any requests that I made or ideas that I had. He was so helpful and made our wedding so much easier. The best thing about Stevie Dee was how stress free he made my reception for me. He helped me figure out the order of events at the reception, the best music to play during dinner, and how to make my day unique. He also made my wedding fun. He knew the style of music that we liked and made sure that there was always a good flow to the music. Anything we asked for he made happen. He was always in control of what was happening so I didn’t have to worry about anything and I could just enjoy my day. Everyone told me afterwards that I had a very fun reception and I know that it was because of all the time and work the Stevie Dee put in to make it so great. Future brides: you may think all a DJ does is play the music, but a good DJ will help you plan your day and make everything easier on you. You shouldn’t have to stress too much about the entertainment. With Operation Getdown our reception went smooth and was a blast.
