Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
fresh, creative, unique, captivating, energetic, and different from 95% of "wedding djs".
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
nope.
What is your usual attire?
it depends on the event, but it's always appropriate. no tuxedos and corny vests though.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
we'll track it down, no sweat.
How many other DJs do you work with?
nine, soon to be twelve.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
five hours. no max.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
of course.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
no, but we've dj'd for lots of different ethnic groups: greek, lithuanian, polish, russian, jewish, german, swedish, indian, etc.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
yes, most definitely. our clients' do-not-play lists usually coincide with our permanent do-not-plays. ha!
Do you bring your own equipment?
yes, all of our equipment is company owned.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
none. if anything, we feel that mobile lighting rigs takes away from the vibe/ambiance. good music>lights any day.
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 need one table. we'll get there two hours prior to the start of the event, regardless of when our contract begins.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
no.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
ugh. (no.)
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
we'll make all the necessary announcements and introductions. beyond that, we'd prefer to let the music do the talking.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
if that were to ever happen, i suppose we would change up the musical format. but it hasn't ever happened.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
it's not required, but the offer is definitely appreciated. we'll eat our meal in our little area, but we never need a break to do it.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
no breaks.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
it's never happened, but in the case of an emergency, we'll take 25% off the total fee, inform the client about what's going on, and send another dj from our team.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
yes, six. in 2010, most likely seven or eight in.
What is your overtime rate?
we don't have one. we'll play as long as you want us to play beyond the contracted time. we charge by the half hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
it depends on how far away the event is. we charge different fees for any event over 25 miles from our homebase in logan square.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
25% down, the remaining 75% is due a week prior to the event.

Spencer and Noah were awesome! Spencer was extremely organized and great with communication. He made sure to pair us up with a DJ that understood our vision for the dance floor (older and younger crowd, quick mixes, oldies, new music, old school hip-hop, etc). The dance floor was packed all night! Noah was our DJ and he was awesome! The music was honestly perfect....We wouldn't of changed a single thing!

Spencer and Nate are awesome! We used Style Matters as our DJ and String Theory as our ceremony musicians. We could not be happier with our decision!

Spencer quickly responded to emails and answered all our questions. He was always professional and helpful. Nate was our assigned DJ, and he was fantastic. Nate took his time to work with us to get the reception just right. Nate has a great personality, and is extremely talented. He definitely knew how to keep the dance floor crowded all night!

String Theory did such an amazing job. The musicians performed beautifully. There was one song that I really wanted during the ceremony, but I was nervous as I was told that they never performed the song before. However, Spencer worked with me and String Theory to make sure that song was playing while I was walking down the aisle. It was perfect!

Thanks so much for everything! -Aileen + Ed

I am beyond grateful to Style Matters and String Theory for providing such amazing entertainment for my wedding September 13th. It is true that a bad DJ can totally kill an otherwise great wedding, and I couldn't be more pleased with how my wedding turned out. I hired Style Matters for the reception and String Theory to play during the ceremony. We ended up having Andrew DJ the reception, and to say I am grateful would be an understatement. He knew exactly what to play and when to play it. I have never been to a wedding where the dance floor was filled the entire time, and to have this experience and my own wedding is overwhelming. I am continuing to get comments regarding the music, and have had 4 friends ask me for the information for Style Matters. You will not be disappointed by going with this company. They are professional, courteous, and know how to get the crowd excited!

Overall, we had a wonderful experience with Style Matters. Spencer, the owner, was super professional and responsive. He paired us with a DJ based on an extensive questionnaire my fiance and I filled out together.

DJ Intel, Jason, was incredible at our wedding, giving us the best dance party we could have imagined. He showed an incredible feel for the pulse of the crowd, and had some impromptu responses to the best man speech and to calls from the crowd during the dance party that were amazing, really contributing to making it such an amazing night. We couldn't have had a better experience overall with a wedding DJ.

If you are looking for a great value, with talented DJ's, and a professional crew, I would definitely use Style Matters!

Style Matters was great! From our initial meeting with Spencer, the owner, to rocking out on the dance floor during our reception to the tunes of our DJ Tom, everything was outstanding. Tom played the best mix of music and managed to keep our dance floor packed the whole night. We had multiple guests tell us how much they loved our DJ. Style Matters is the best!

We chose to work with Style Matters as a DJ for our wedding in August and could not have been happier with our decision! Spencer was incredibly helpful, friendly and easy to work without throughout the planning process and Matt, our DJ for the event, was awesome. My husband and I, as well as our guests, all commented on how great Matt was - personable, great music, easy going and most important to us, no annoying light shows or cheesy commentary :) The pricing was reasonable, their team is professional, responsive and all around nice people to work with. Definitely consider them for any of our upcoming Chicago-area events, we highly recommend them!

THE BEST. Seriously. The owner, Spencer, is just an amazing person to work with. I've never had someone email back so quickly - the man is prompt. The greatest attribute of Style Matters is they have access to djs of various tastes and styles (and they all play venues in Chicago), so he will pick the best dj that suits you and your fiancé. Travas was specially chosen as our dj and he absolutely killed it. He listened to all of our ideas and odd tastes and made it flow seamlessly all night long. I didn't leave the dance floor once that evening. It was perfect.

Style Matters was the best dj to work with! We loved working with Spencer and Max. They provided a really quality service and we felt like they really tried to get to know us and our music style before the wedding. They were great MCs for the night and played the best music. Max provided the dance party that we wanted for our night. I highly recommend their professional services.
