We chose Dance Pro DJs for our daughter's Sweet 16 Party. Rick responded quickly to our email request for a quote and he was very reasonably priced. The music was great and he was able to play every song requested. We also had a photo booth - the props were fun and the photo strips were good quality. Rick and his associate were professional and responsive to all our needs. We will definitely use Dance Pro DJs again for future events!!

What can I say? Dance Pro DJs were perfect from start to finish. They arrived on time, had a wonderful flawless photo booth, had a very pleasant person running the booth, immediately delivered high-quality personalized photos to the guests and us. Luis was on time and extremely good, personable and patient with our guests. Definitely will be using Dance Pro DJs again!

Fantastic! We hired Dance pro DJs for our wedding photo booth and our guests (and us) LOVED it. They were courteous, prompt and most of all FUN. The pictures were great and we loved the photo strip Rick designed for us! A++ in our book!

We hired Carl of City Street's DJs for our wedding this past June. I was a little ahead of the game and booked Carl right away, almost a year and a half in advance. I was one of those super planner brides. We met with Carl at a local Starbucks and proceeded to tell him our vision of our big day. He was very organized and professional, but also warm and all around a nice person. We decided to book him right away (after meeting with other DJs in the Chicago area) and he set us up with an online portal to help us manage the music we wanted played and to tell him about songs that were not to be played under any circumstances. Carl was always available by email any time we had a question and met with us two additional times before the wedding. He wasn't too familiar with the venue we had chosen, so he wanted to get an understanding of the layout and the flow of the event. That was very much appreciated! We went into our wedding day feeling very confident that everything would flow very nicely and it did! Thank you so much Carl!

Carl was awesome! He met with me and answered all my questions initially as well as just before the wedding. He even responded to my texts a few days beforehand immediately. He had great suggestions and guidance when I wasn't sure on something. His website to put in your songs is user friendly. He played all our must play songs, he set up both outside for our ceremony as well as inside within the reception venue. He provided microphones for our singers as well as our officiant. The music he played was described by one of our guests as "great song after great song!" Our guests were on the dance floor all night and that's exactly what we were hoping for! I would recommend Carl and City Street's DJs for any event!

Carl was awesome to work with. He is so friendly and responsive. He met with us before we booked with him then once more a few weeks before the wedding to go over all the details. His website is easy to use and I loved that we could create our own playlists. Our dance floor was packed all night and everyone kept telling us how awesome the music was. I would definitely recommend City Street’s DJs!!!

I knew I wanted to hire John immediately after meeting him. His willingness to make consultations is a huge plus, and his professionalism and straightforward approach put him over the top. Plus his prices were the best out of all the DJs I met with. He was easy to work with and had no problem incorporating some unique music choices. The ceremony music transitioned really well, and my entrance hit the music just perfect, a moment I will truly never forget. He did a great job with some difficult names during the bridal party introductions and kept the everyone lively and engaged. Several times at both dinner and the reception people stopped to comment about hearing a song they love/wouldn't have expected/was awesome. I highly recommend John to anyone looking for a DJ service!

DJ John is very professional and extreamly good at his trade. I was a bit nervous because our guests were from very mixed styles of music and DJ John hit it out of the park! He was very prepared and also very flexible. I absolutely loved his timeline and event planning worksheets which kept us organized and in great communication. DJ provided uplights, dance floor lights and a digital globo image projector. DJ John worked very well with our wedding planner, responded to emails and calls and was very punctual for all our meetings. We highly recommend DJ John and will hire him again without hesitation.

My husband and I can't say enough great things about Red Letter DJs!!!! I wish I could give them a rating higher than 5 stars because they definitely deserve it. I met them first at a bridal expo in January and was enthused by their professionalism and outgoing personalities. They were super easy to work with through the entire process and answered/returned phone calls very quickly. They were very accommodating and easy to work with. The website is easy to understand and use. I'm not the most tech savvy person but I was able to negotiate it with perfect ease. My guests also loved that they could request music directly at the website and if you're a Facebook addict like me, they have a link you can post directly to Facebook. And even when your guests do make requests, you still have complete control over the music. I didn't actually meet Sam until my reception started and immediately we were impressed by his sense of humor and professionalism. All I can I say is the dance floor wasn't empty AT ALL the whole night. Everyone was moving and dancing to every song he played. He took requests, played our requests and it was SO MUCH FUN! He clearly enjoyed his job and probably jammed out harder to the music than the rest of us. Actually, he doesn't just enjoy his job, I wish I be as passionate about my job as Sam and the rest of the DJs at Red Letter DJs. We had family members who normally don't dance on the dance floor the WHOLE NIGHT! We had multiple guests say he was one of the best DJs they've ever experienced. I had people saying it was the best wedding they'd ever been too! I will NEVER regret hiring them because it was one of the best decisions I'd ever made. I hired them without consulting my husband, who can be a little picky. Not only did he say I did an amazing job, he almost bowed down to me. Red Letter DJ's made me look great but really, all the credit goes to them. Everyone loved Sam, myself included, and it was the very least I could do to write them an AMAZING review. They are worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY and probably many more! If you are getting married in Illinois, hire these guys. They know what they're doing, they will work with you and are clearly at the top of their field. I could go on for days... THEY ARE AMAZING!!!!!

We hired Red Letter DJs for our wedding at the Roundhouse in Aurora, IL. Jeremy was amazing! He was always quick to respond to my questions and they have a great on-line planning tool if you are interested in requesting or banning specific songs, as well as, songs for introductions and first dances. Talking with Jeremy to plan the specifics of the day gave me confidence that he would make everything run smoothly and people would have a great time. On the big day, Jeremy arrived early to set up, and the up-lights really transformed the room into a more elegant space. We enjoyed his cocktail hour music selections and appreciated his checking in with us to make sure we were happy. He made the introductions, toasts, and first dances run smoothly and got a bunch of people on the dance floor right away and kept them there all night. You can tell that Jeremy really enjoys what he does by the enthusiasm he displayed all night long. He checked in with us throughout the night to make sure we were happy and the answer was always yes. If you are looking for someone that will keep the party going all night long, you have found it with Jeremy.

We are very happy to have hired Red Letter DJs. We booked them months in advance because we were impressed with the amount of detail we were provided. Jeremy was very informative and made the process very easy to plan. We booked a DJ for the night and were able to choose any songs we wanted on their easy to use website. Even though we selected what we thought was more than enough music, near the end of the night our DJ, Dan, had to start playing supplemental songs. We were very happy with his selections, which showed he was paying attention to our style and the energy of the crowd. The reception was at Mars Gallery, Chicago, and

Rick and his crew were fantastic. We couldn't have asked for a better group to MC/DJ our wedding. Rick has this infectious enthusiasm that is hard not to love. He knows how to party. Whenever the party felt like it was losing some steam, he would jump on the mic and pump them back up. I can't tell you how many guests came up to me and said they loved Rick. DJ Mambo seemed to always hit the right notes with the music he played. The dance floor was never empty. Valerie did an excellent job coordinating everything. We never felt overwhelmed with her steady hand making sure all was right. I would highly recommend Special Occasion Events for your wedding or party.

We could not be happier with the DJ service that Lori provided!!! She not only worked for over 12 hours straight but also had the BEST playlist imaginable!! We were hosting a dock/ harbor party for our Daughter's going away party into the Coast Guard. Lori managed to put together a song list including every boating and water related song ever made. WE LOVED THAT!! Such a nice touch! She of course had every song for every age group and had the crowd dancing all day and night! She kept in constant contact with us before the event so she did not miss one single detail. Everything from playlists, age groups, set up location, volume through dinner service, special songs to be played as we served cake, etc. She simply covered every single detail that I would have never even asked her to do. She was so professional from start to finish! EVERYONE had nothing but the highest compliments to the AMAZING DJ we hired for that party! I can't say it enough...LORI IS THE BEST DJ EVER!!! We host many parties throughout the year and I can promise Lori will ALWAYS be our one and only choice for DJ services from here on out! I am so very happy I found this website! We also got the very best caterer through Thumbtack as well! THANK YOU LORI for the FANTASTIC job you did as our DJ for our party!! Paulette C

DJ Lori was incredible! She was so professional and she was attentive to our every need. She was the DJ for our wedding. The guests were on the dance floor from start to finish. The guests were devastated when the music had to end. I never had one moment of doubt with DJ Lori. I would use her from now on for any and every event. She is comfortable with all genres of music. She has truly amazing skills!

If you want to dance ALL night, DJ MattJ is the man for the job! He came two hours south to DJ my B-day celebration. Everyone kept coming up to me asking where I got him from! He plays songs all the way through unlike most DJs and he mixed them well! There were no gaps or discontinuation between songs. He asked for my playlist of requested songs and not only got them all in but mixed them with some pretty good choices of his own. I kinda wish he would have played at least one bad song so I could have taken a bathroom break ha-ha. My friend and associates are still asking me to have another party and invite him back. Awesome DJ!

We hired Angels With An Edge to be the DJs and MCs for our wedding reception. We did not have a large crowd (40 people) and were a little worried about if people would be dancing and what music would be best, but the DJs handled everything well. They got people dancing and played background music when we needed it. We don't listen to too much music so it was difficult for us to come up with a playlist, so the DJs did that for us and they did a great job. They were able to adapt to how our crowd was reacting. This was important to us and we do not think things could have gone any smoother. We would recommend them.

From my first contact with the owner I was impressed with how everything was addressed beforehand. The dinner music was perfect. As soon as dinner was over the party started. There were people on the dance floor all night. The owner and dj even got on the dance floor to teach dances. We were thoroughly satisfied. I will recommend them to everyone. I had a lot of people asking who they were and where we found them. They made the reception unforgettable.

Super fun DJs, everyone was dancing! Amy was very patient with me when she couldn't reach me before the wedding, we were able to connect briefly before our wedding and everything went without a hitch! She pronounced our ethnic names perfectly and took requests from us and we even did one karaoke song! We didn't hear too many of the songs we emailed them but we hardly cared because everyone was having a great time! Thanks for everything!

I actually booked him for my brothers 22nd birthday party and I was first impressed with his professionalism and punctuality. He came with a smile and was friendly not arrogant. Dj Swank brought music for all ages from Deadmau5 and other dance music all the way to Def leppard "pour some sugar on me" and even some salsa music, I applaud him for being very versatile AND reasonably priced. We have now booked him my cousins wedding and bachelor party and cant wait to dance all night!!! Thank u dj Swank for the tunes and fun

Carlo did a great job DJ'ing our party. He has lots of music to chose from and is very professional. He was very nice to all of our guests and took as many requests as he could to make everybody happy. We all had a great time and his pricing was very competitive compared to most DJ's I had dealt with in the past for the quality of the show he puts on. His experience definitely shows.

I've hired Brian for several DJ projects for professional events - and he has knocked it out the park every time. There are lots of DJs who can spin; but Brian is on time, dressed well (bow tie and all), is easy to work with and his passion for the craft is evident. He reads the crowd and keeps them moving.
