The platinum occasions in our lives are once in a lifetime experiences, and the memories of these events should be treasured forever. With so much importance being placed on the success of an event, choosing your service professionals should be taken very seriously. The companies that you choose to provide service for your event will be almost exclusively responsible for you and your guests’ enjoyment, comfort and satisfaction, and their compensation should be earned.

At Platinum Occasions, we believe that we set the standard for “Owner Operated” customer service. We provide our services in a way that puts our customers as the highest possible priority for us. This is not just our sales pitch!

We recognize that there are thousands of qualified and talented service providers in our industry, but all of us are running a service business. This is a very key point of discussion because as business owners we are motivated by making money for providing our services. Most successful businesses start with a very talented and popular service provider that decides to open his own company. As the business becomes more successful it expands. If the business owner chooses to expand, it can no longer offer just the owner’s services, so can the business continue to be as good?

At Platinum Occasions, we believe that we are able to set the standard for consistent and unmatched service because we have committed to staying with what has made, and will continue to make us successful! Our services will be provided by our owners, and the success that we have had through the years will not pressure us to expand, and possibly weaken the service that we provide. We will see to it that you are consulted with and that every detail of your event is carried out.

Our wedding was absolutely amazing - but Jim really, truly, made the party! EVERYONE was coming up to us, complimenting him and the music. And he made us both so comfortable throughout the entire process. Jim played our ceremony processional and recessional music since it was an outdoor wedding, and we made some last minute changes and he never batted an eye. He was so flexible and made us feel so relaxed about everything. He never rushed us but kept us on task the entire time. I will definitely recommend him to all of my friends and family!!

Jim was great DJ. He really took the temperature of the crowd in the room and played music accordingly. Our only real gripe was the songs we added to our "Must Play" list was a bit neglected. We wish that more of the selections were played. But Jim was awesome and really made the party flow.

We had a very unique surprise wedding that started off as our son's 1st birthday party. This required a lot of assistance and extra planning with the DJ. Not only did Jim help pull this off, he made it a complete success. After the ceremony Jim had everyone young and old on the dance floor all night long. Jim really helped make our surprise wedding a complete success. If your looking for a DJ stop here because you will be in great hands.

Jim was an AMAZING DJ! We hired Jim to DJ our wedding reception, which was located in a room that opened up to another room where we held our ceremony. A live musician was supposed to play our music while we walked down the aisle. Needless to say the live musician didn't show up! Jim saved the day by offering to playing our ceremony music for us! I don't know what I would have done had he not been there.

The reception ended up being a hit! Jim mixed great music the entire night, and we never had an empty dance floor. We literally had to cut the music to get people to leave! The whole process of working with Jim was fun and easy. His site allowed us to pick all of the music that we liked effortlessly, and we were even able to find songs that were popular for each category (i.g. the bouquet toss and father daughter dance). I would hire Jim again in a minute! I'm definitely recommending him!

Jim went above and beyond all expectations as a DJ. He not only DJed the reception but also handled all the music for our ceremony and the audio for our officiant. He was super responsive and extremely pleasant to work with. I loved being able to go online and add songs to playlists, it made the whole process so much easier. I can't tell you how many times we heard from all our guests throughout the night how amazing they thought he was, He knows exactly what to play and when. Also, he took the time to make sure he knew how to pronounce everyone's names perfectly. A big plus for someone who's last name gets pronounced wrong often.

He provided ceremony music which was beautiful and awesome dinner music. He was very funny, yet professional, and I would definitely recommend him to other couples in the Chicago area!!

Jim is a wonderful DJ. The dance floor was packed all night. He played an excellent variety of music, he had a feel for the crowd and what kept them dancing. In the days after the wedding we rec'd many calls from friends and family saying they haven't danced that much in years and that he was the best DJ they've ever seen. Jim is a great guy and was a pleasure to work with. Of all the vendors we worked with he was by far the best. I would definitely use him again. I can only hope he's still around when my younger daughter gets married.

When I say that I checked our DJ's availability before I "booked" our wedding...I'm not lying! :O) Jim was our DJ and he was AWESOME! My husband LOVED previewing our music selection and making requests online. Jim was so awesome, when we forgot to pick a specific song for the Mother/Son dance...he had a GREAT ONE ready to go for us! The dance floor was packed all night long!! We were amazed how many people stayed out on the dance floor even after the bar closed..the music played on and our guests stayed dancing with us until the lights came up. :O)

Jim also provided his photobooth and we LOVE looking back on the album and laughing at all the silly pictures and messages from our family and friends. I continue to recommend Jim to ALL of my friends, and I am looking forward to seeing him twice this SPRING at two different weddings. :O) THANK YOU JIM!! Toni & Mike Wolthusen

I know it probably seems like I am just giving out perfect 5s across the board, but that is because the service Jim provided for us was just PERFECT! As a bride, you worry that people will enjoy themselves...that the older guests will get out on the dance floor, that the younger guests will get out on the dance floor, and that everyone will talk about what an amazing party it was. My wedding was a crazy mix of ages, backgrounds, and musical tastes, but there was never a moment when you had to worry that no one would be dancing.

For my husband and I, we wanted to make sure that people got out on the dance floor and stayed there. The way Jim grouped the music ensured that it happened - he provided a great balance of old & new music and fast & slow songs. By the time one group was ready to get a drink or rest their feet or check out the photobooth, another group was ready to take over. And there were times when it seemed as though EVERYONE at the wedding was on the dance floor.

In terms of announcements and first dances, Jim could not have been more accommodating or professional. He made sure to check the pronunciation of names and had everything timed well and he made sure to have the songs we requested. Our guests said that the music filled the room and was clear without being overwhelming.

Personally, I think Jim's service is a steal and would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family. He seems to genuinely enjoy what he does and really takes the time to get to know his client(s) and their guests. He also is quick to respond to e-mails/texts/calls. I think that music plays a HUGE role in making/breaking a party and hiring Jim will definitely ensure that it is a major success!

I could not have asked for a better DJ than Jim. From the very beginning he was friendly, helpful, and completely professional.

We loved his website, which allowed us to plan all of the important songs and events at the reception at our convenience. We had some unique songs on our playlist, and he found all of them for us.

At the reception, Jim kept our guests dancing from the first dance to the last. It was wonderful, and our guests are still talking about our awesome party and DJ. We would use his services again in a heartbeat!

Jim Mast was the DJ for my wedding and I just want to say what an absolutely wonderful job he did and what a pleasure it was to work with him! Everytime I emailed or called him he got back to me immediately which is so important when you are planning such a big event. Jim did the music not only for my reception, but also for my ceremony. He also did a picture slideshow during our first dances. I have nothing but great things to say about his work. Our dance floor was full all night too so I know my guests had a great time too! I would highly recommend using Jim if you need a DJ, you won't be dissappointed.

Top-notch service and a fun evening! What sets Jim apart from other DJs is a special talent in production of reception 'entrances'. He absolutely nailed our entrance, set to U2's "City Of Blinding Light". HIGHLY recommended for a unique & special kickoff to your wedding.

We were so happy! Thanks again for everything!
