About

Rick was our dj for our daughter's Christening reception. Rick was absolutely fantastic. He really listened to all of our ideas on how we wanted the night to go. Everything was absolutely perfect! Our guests had a blast dancing all night. He played the perfect mix of music. His equipment was top notch. I really loved how he asked our guests for requests. Most djs don't like when guests request songs. He truly made the night one to remember. I would recommend him to anyone who wants their event in good hands. Thanks Rick!

About

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!!!!!

About

Randy was the DJ at our wedding in May! I found him nearly a year before our wedding while I was researching DJs that were appropriately priced! He was great communicating with us up until the big day, and was there to set up a few hours before the reception the day of. He did a fantastic job and played all of the songs we had sent him. There were a few requests that weren't on our list, so he came and asked us if he should play them (very considerate). He also helped teach some of our guests the electric slide. Wonderful all around, I would recommend him to everyone, and I would hire him again if we need a DJ :)

About

Buddy and his wife went above and beyond our expectations. I contacted T.B.M. and several other DJs that were suggested to me through Thumbtack. They immediately set up a time with wife and I at a local Starbucks and gave us very user friendly wedding plan. This allowed us to format our wedding music exactly the way we wanted it to be. They were very informative when we needed direction and guidance and allowed us to be more imaginative and think outside the box to ensure that we provide a very entertaining evening for not only us but guests as well. We met with again about one month from the wedding date to go over all the music and cover any final details. On the day of our wedding everything went exactly as planned all the way down to the special dance that we prepared for my wife's brother and sister-in-law's recognition of their 10 yrs of marriage. The most important condition that we had was that we never wanted to see the dance floor empty once we go the party started and must confess, it never was!!! I have been to many weddings and some where good, some were downright awful. I may be a little biased but this was best wedding I have ever been too. I had over 150 people that said the exact same thing to me the whole night. It has been several days since then and I still have friends and family members talking about how great of a time they had. I will forever recommend T.B.M. to anyone who will be getting married in the Chicagoland area! As close as to perfection as a DJ service can get. Time: 5:30-11:00PM

I have used a number of DJ's for private events and this by far ranks up there near the top 2 spots. DJ D. Jones was very professional, on time, flexible and open to all suggestions. I was mostly impressed with his ability to read the crowd and know what genre of music to play and change up throughout the evening. My attendees expressed great excitement so that they requested him to spin 2hrs beyond the cutoff time.

Joey from Flipside DJ Entertainment was our wedding DJ and I could not say enough good things about him! He was very easy to work with, knew all the latest hits as well as some of the oldies, and provided entertainment for all guests. The dance floor was hopping all night and people didn't want to leave! His uplighting created such a wonderful ambiance that people still talk about it today. I would highly recommend Flipside DJ Entertainment and Joey to any bride and groom.

About

We provide everything but the music and the table. We do what is called the "IPod wedding:" We bring in and set up a sound system tailored to your needs. Your designated DJ and MC attaches your IPod or laptop to the system. We show you how to operate the board, all of 5 minutes. You cue up and play your music (and you make your own announcements) on our system for about one third to one half of what a DJ would charge. We then show up after the event to take everything down. We do a similar thing with Karaoke; we set it up, show you how, and take it down when it is over, or you can pick up a portable Karaoke system (credit card required, Visa/Mastercard-Yes, and American Express not so much). We do public address systems for business events. We also have ultra-quiet generators for events at venues with no power (forest preserves, athletic fields, parks, etc.) We do something known as 'sound reinforcement'. If a young band books a good gig and needs to rent horsepower (i.e., sub-woofers, speakers, amplifiers, condenser mics, large mixing boards, all the cables and expertise, etc.), that is our specialty. We use top-of-the-line equipment (JBL speakers and Itech amplifiers). Not that we would, but we could bring in enough sound power to disintegrate the building. About the videos: After I set the system up, I shoot a short video with my Ipod (that I use to test the system). I was mainly shooting them for documentation purposes (I never anticipated uploading them to the web). I apologize for the shaky video and poor sound (it's just an Ipod).
