DJ was very attentive, played music list I gave, and kept the flow going. Dance floor was never empty and energy was high. I had to remind him though to turn on the Dancing under the stars light that I added to the package. Music was great but there was a 2-3 sec lag between songs and I wished it was continuous, mixed like DJs do, and without breaking the dance momentum. I would recommend them to other Bride's but be sure they mix the music better

We used Windy City Hitman for our daughter's wedding DJ and were extremely pleased with them! I never realized how important the DJ is, as he emcees the whole night. Our DJ was Gary, who I think is the owner. He spent a lot of time with us, finding out what we wanted and what we didn't want. Choices like if you wanted to allow song requests, or special song ideas - we chose to have all the married couple dance during one song, the he kept announcing how many years you were married to keep dancing - the couple married the longest won - that was really fun! You can also choose if you want the DJ out on the dance floor & more involved or behind the scenes more. He also has state of the art equipment & backup equipment. I would definitely contact them & ask for a information packet!

We had our wedding on Sept. 16, 2011. The lighting and music was perfect. Purple lighting on the walls, and stars on the ceiling, left stars in our eyes. Our color was purple and the room setting was fantastic. All our guests were raving about the fantastic job windy city did. Joe our dj was just great. We gave joe our list before the day, and all our requests were met. Even the requests of our guests were done. Joe got everyone invovled in the music. Joe was approachable and accommodating Everything was done professonially and to perfection. If you want your wedding to be what you always anticipated, Windy city hitman is the chose to do so.

Gary did a wonderful job with music and the lighting. He kept people on the floor all night long and worked with me when trying to pick music. I would definitely recommend Windy City Hitman to anyone looking for a DJ.

The Windy City Hitman DJs are awesome! We met with Gary and he showed us all of the packages and details and extras that they offer and really made us feel like we were in control of our wedding music. The packages offer the client to really be as much or as little a part of the planning process as they would like, which was a benefit for me because I had a few "definite" songs and then I trusted them to go forth with the rest. Brian was our DJ and he was awesome! He was great with reading the crowd and leading the night but not being over the top. He picked great songs and played everything I wanted, and those songs that I didn't hand pick were right in line with what I would have wanted anyways. They provided uplighting and special effects lighting for us too, and set up and use of the lights was flawless. We had absolutely no problems or complaints about using this company and would definitely recommend or use them in the future!

We booked with Gary in January for our Oct. 10th wedding. Each and every time I had any questions, or had to update infor about the wedding, he responded in a very timely manner. He was also funny and interacted with my husband's niece. He went through my entire list of songs and picked the right ones to play to keep people on the dance floor. What was also cool was when we went to his office and had a demonstration of how the music would sound. Overall, I would defintely recommend Windy City Hitman.

This was the best decision we could have made for our reception! Our guests have been raving ever since the wedding about how fantastic our DJ was. Beyond just music, we had the lights, bubbles, etc...that created a fabulous atmosphere for everyone in attendance and made the night that much more special. Gary was fantastic throughout the planning process and did a superb job following our timeline and making sure our other requests were taken care of. The planning process was made so easy since Gary & his company have been doing this for 20+ years, all I had to do was say the word and it was done! Everything went perfectly, just as we had planned. I strongly urge future brides & grooms to use Windy City Hitman for their reception. For all that we got, the price is extremely reasonable & fair...overall, we are extremely pleased that we chose Windy City Hitman for our wedding!!!!

Yes, you are supposed to have your wedding music list already made a couple of months or a month before the wedding bu t I was slacking on this. I sent in my forms just the weekend before the wedding and I made a couple of changes just three days before the wedding. I was super worried and nervous but the DJ reaasured me that everything was going to work out and it DID!!!! Everyone was on the dance floor having the best time of their lives. They delivered a package with a DVD of expectations of their service, music styles and different lighting options to set the mood of the room.
