We hired City Street's DJ for my daughter's wedding. I had only one and a half months to prepare for my daughter's wedding. Originally we had opted to play music from a computer and let the guests dance to that. As the wedding plans were being finalized we realized that it would help us if we had someone to emcee the wedding so that it would flow smoothly. One week before the wedding we decided to hire a DJ/emcee to help us. I filled out the information on thumbtack and Carl was one of the several DJ's that responded. We contacted Carl and was pleased with the quick response and his knowledge of what it would take to make a wedding a success. Carl did an excellent job in helping us to understand how to make the wedding flow smoothly. He was easy to work with and was able to see when things needed to get moving along and kept us on track as the events unfolded. His skill in being able to read the crowd allowed him to choose the best music to play in order for all guests, young and old, to dance and enjoy themselves. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. I would highly recommend Carl for future events.

I hired Special Occasion Events to provide Salsa music and dance instruction for our Synagogue event. Rick Mangram and the band were terrific. Rick was a great emcee and really kept the guests moving. He knew just how to read the crowd and provide the pace that was right for the most participation. On a personal level, Rick was easy to work with and very reliable and professional. The band members were also very friendly and wonderful musicians. All in all the experience was super and I would not hesitate to recommend them or to hire them again. Heidi Rosenberg

Adding the karaoke to the set was a great add to your set-up. This year it seemed that not as many people were into the music at the beginning, but definitely jumped on board towards the end of the night. Although I'm sure we could have requested songs for the first set, maybe having this list ahead of time would have helped jump-start the evening. The "wedding songs" were not getting people on the dance floor. Maybe sending a request list that clients can return may be one suggestion. Other than that, a-ok. Great job Jesse!

We had Lionel be the DJ/emcee at a non-profit fundraising walk and he did an outstanding job! Was very professional from start to finish and certainly met and exceeded our expectations. Would definitely hire again!

The DJ, Dale, was professional, timely, accommodating, easy to work with, enthusiastic, polite, friendly, helpful and experienced. Everyone was dancing all night long and they played a great variety of songs. He was also a great emcee for directing the entire evening. We sent Chicago Mobile Entertainment our playlist just a couple of days before our wedding and they were able to find all the special music we wanted for our ceremony and reception in time. All of our guests commented on what a great time they had. Dale was excellent for my Wedding Reception & Ceremony! We would definitely use them again!

We hired Val for my daughters 1st birthday party. She's just wonderful and we love her work so much. In the past I regret hirring other lower-priced face painters who didn't know how to paint well and worst of all they do not know how to interact with the kids. For me, it's very important to keep in mind how a face painter relates to the children. She's friendly, funny, clever, professional to work with, fast and incredibly talented. We love our experience with her and everyone else at the party did too. She's amazing and we love her very much. ?

ReVrb Sound was the DJ for our late November wedding, and we couldn't have been happier! They kept the party on the dance floor where it belonged! Not only does the software provided allow you to choose your "Must Play" and "Do Not Play" (and everything in between) lists, but it helps create a day-of schedule and track important people and parts of your big day. They brought everything in, took everything out, and we didn't even have to think about it. Just let the music play!

We were very pleased with the job Brendon did DJing our daughter's 8th grade graduation party. It was an outdoor, afternoon party. Brendon was very professional and polite. He responded promptly to my inquiries and provided us with everything we needed. He was on time and personable with our guests. The kids enjoyed him! He did a great job, played music appropriate for the age group of our guests and was very affordable too. I would recommend him.
