    We LOVED working with SoPrime! I found them on Thumbtack originally only for a photobooth, but upon speaking with them found out they also did DJing. They were wonderful to work with, really reasonably priced, and did a great job! We used them for our photobooth, DJ, and additional uplighting in our venue - it was a barn on family property. They provided music and microphones for our ceremony, DJ'd our cocktail hour, and of course the reception. They provided a very comprehensive worksheet to us at our initial meeting, and that helped us tremendously in our planning! Chris was our DJ, and he was such a pleasure to work with and did a great job keeping people dancing and entertained! We would recommend SoPrime to anyone looking for a DJ! We just can't say enough good things about them!

    Volunteer theme night
    They were very responsive with my inquiry. The event was just a week out from my initial contact. The pricing was fair, they were flexible on their deposit (We are a nonprofit) they showed up on time and very professional. I would definitely book again!

    Best Company Out There!
    Every year we host a Mardi Gras or Valentine's day party for our parish community. SoPrime Entertainment is by far the best. They provide us with a DJ, photo booth, and uplighting every year, which is all amazing. The people are wonderful to work and they care about making your event a success. Every year I get rave reviews from our attendees about how awesome the music and photo booth is. There's no doubt in my mind that we will continue using them for all of our events.

    Top shelf D.J. and M.C. service
    From our initial consultation to the end of the reception Chris and Justin were amazing!!! We had almost 350 people and I heard nothing but compliments. From the introductions to the atmosphere and the dancing everything was perfect. The uplighting that they provided added a chic vibe that made the room pop. We have and will continue to recommend them to all of friends and family.

    Best DJ service!
    We could not have been more pleased with the entertainment and service that we received for our event from Justin and Chris of SoPrime Entertainment! We had a surprise 60th birthday party for my husband at a venue where SoPrime supplied great music both inside and outside. I was surprised what a perfect addition it was to even a smaller event of about 40-50 people to have a DJ present. You can select your own playlist or do like I did and just have them create the appropriate music if you don't have the time or inclination to make your own song choices. I will definitely be calling them for my next event whether it's small like this or for my daughter's wedding! Thanks SoPrime!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
All of our pricing is standardized and services are fully customizable. Our website is set up to build custom quotes, so check it out and don't hesitate to call with any questions!
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Since all events are different, we encourage everyone to give us a call to determine what is required from us. We are also available via text, email, Facebook message, and Google hangouts. If you would like to meet in person you can stop by our studio in Downers Grove where we have hours by appointment. For our DJ an MC services we encourage our customers to setup a meeting with the DJ that will be running their event. Once we figure out the details and finalize a quote we will take a deposit to secure the date, and setup an online planning document and payment account.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Though our core business is weddings, we have done many corporate parties and school dances as well. We typically work directly with our customers, but also work through planners and talent agencies for our larger clients.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure to start planning early and shop around to see what is available, what the price range is, and what quality of service you will receive for that price. The entertainment industry isn't standardized so you'll find a huge range. Most professional entertainers would love to talk to you directly about your event via phone or video chat and depending on the complexity they may offer to meet in person. Don't hesitate to bring up your concerns to a company you are considering hiring, if they can't respond with confidence and address the issue directly you may want to keep looking.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Imagine the atmosphere you would like to create. How many people are there? What are they doing? Recall similar events you have attended in the past. What did you like and what didn't you like? We can offer suggestions and provide entertainment related services to help create your perfect party!
