Joe ran the karaoke to perfection. He was on time, had an excellent music selection, was a great DJ even after karaoke wasn't being used. He made himself available for a long night of overtime. Our company thoroughly enjoyed his karaoke system and the time he spent DJing. Would highly recommend him for corporate parties or big events like ours.

I ran a karaoke Philanthropy event and from the beginning Ray was very responsive and helpful. On the day of the event he was 15 minutes early. During the event he was very flexible in what we wanted to do and he was the perfect karaoke guy for the event. Highly recommend hiring for any type of event. Has a great comedic personality that the whole room will enjoy.

Ray did karaoke for my 50th birthday party and we had a blast. His prices were very reasonable and he's a cute fun guy. Thanks Ray

The DJ/Karaoke experience was awesome! It was a very fun night for all guests both young children and adults were in attendance and the DJ Peter accommodated all music genre desires. Classy event held in downtown Chicago and you couldn't have asked for a better DJ!

Joe was great! He DJ'd our company party and ran a great karaoke program. He was easy & fun to deal with, was ready on time (actually early), stayed late, was flexible with the party goers requests and simply did a great job. Will definitely use him again!

Joe Dj'd and MC'd my company's holiday party. He set up early and was ready to go when the clock started. Played whatever anyone wanted to hear. Did not mind drunken requests. Helped get some karaoke going. An all around pleasure to work with. Great job!!!!!

SG Entertainment is awesome! Garrett was super-communicative, friendly, and easy to work with--and handled a minor scheduling snafu (on our end) with grace. Everyone had a great time at our karaoke party, and I look forward to hiring SG again when our venue reopens after renovations. Thanks, Garrett!

We sang all night and they he had every song we could think of! I hired SG Entertainment for a company event and not only was he on time and had a great karaoke song list but he also DJ's so you dont have any silent moments. I would definitely hire him again!

Excellent!! Joe was the perfect dj/host/personality for our holiday party! He gently encouraged and supported all our nervous karaoke singers, and filled the rest of the time with awesome music, taking requests from all. I was told it was our best holiday party yet. Thank you Joe! Hope you are available next year! 😊
