If I could give Cris 10 Stars, I absolutely would! From the very first conversation to our goodbyes at the end of our wedding, he was an absolute blast to work with! Extremely responsive and helpful; so full of energy! He had EVERYONE at our wedding on the dance floor! He coordinated great with both our photographer and officiant. I never had to worry about time or where I needed to be. He made sure the entire night went smoothly. I've gotten so many compliments about how great the music variety was and how he was able to read the crowd. Cris, keep up the AMAZING job!Oct 11, 2018Verified
Cris was AMAZING. All of my guests raved about him and he was just so great. He made sure to ask about anything he should be aware of, we had a slideshow and he was so helpful in showing that, even offered to run to Target when we weren't sure if we had the correct cords for it! He truly was so great. We had people dancing the whole night. We are huge Cubs fans, we had little cubs details around the reception, the Cubs played and won the night of our wedding - I'm not sure if anyone asked but he played Go Cubs Go as our last song and it was the most perfect way to end the night. Thank you for making our day so perfect!!Oct 2, 2018Verified

- How did you get started doing this type of work?My interest in becoming a DJ came in 1996 when I was 11 years old. My father brought some PA equipment to a first communion event for one of our family friends. To everyone's surprise, I knew how to operate the turntable, cd & cassette players, and speak on the microphone. Now fast forward over 20 years later, and we are still close to that family. The daughter that had her first communion, is getting married in 2018. I was so honored when she asked me to be the DJ for her wedding.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?Make sure to ask for proof of liability insurance. Many venues are now requiring this before they let DJ's into their building. We can provide a copy of our insurance policy at any time, as well as our license to do business. We are an LLC, registered in the state of Illinois.
