A Day You’ll Remember
We make it our mission to get to know each client personally, which helps us achieve perfection in designing and planning your event
Unlike the larger multi-operational DJ companies who emphasize booking as many clients as possible, we focus on getting to know each client personally, and invest time in helping you design and plan each event to perfection.
The “cookie cutter” approach is outdated. Our DJs employ a different, more personable approach we know our clients appreciate. And after more than 10 years of entertaining hundreds of people, we know this approach works.
How is our Boutique Approach Different than that of other Chicago DJ Companies?
We handpick our DJs for your event based on your specified preferences and tastes. By doing that, we ensure that your DJ are an excellent fit for you and your event.
Our Guarantee: The DJ whose name is on your contract will be the DJ at your event.

Award-winning DJ Paul Michaels (Top 5 in Chicagoland!) has over 12 years of professional experience in the events industry, and has DJ’d 100s of weddings and events at a wide range of venues. Paul Michaels has a few years working the nightlife under his belt (clubs and bars), and utilizes this background to give a special spin to his private events. He works with every client to give them the personal touch their event needs to make for an unforgettable event!
Terry has been a DJ for 11 years. During his DJ career, he’s worked in the Midwest and West coast, covering a wide variety of events. His experience in television production and talent as an emcee, dancer, and entertainer makes him an indispensable advisor during the planning stage. He truly is the complete package for weddings and private events.
Ian has a unique approach to DJing: He believes it’s much more than just playing music. It’s about the audience experience. Unity. And still, never forgetting to have fun. As an actor, comedian, and viral-dance creator, Ian approaches the craft of DJing through the lens of an entertainer. With years of experience DJing weddings, birthdays, blacklight parties, and more, if it’s fun you’re looking for, Ian is ready to bring it to your event!
DJ Tim has been working as a DJ specializing in private events and weddings for 20 years. He’s performed at more than 600 mobile events! Tim also holds multiple residencies as a country DJ at bars around the Chicagoland area. But he also loves constantly adding to his extensive experience as an open-format and top 40 DJ as well. As with all our DJs, Tim is an expert crowd reader, and the crowded dance floor is a reflection of his expert abilities.
Ryan is an open-format DJ who specializes in Mobile DJ Services. (He can show up to “empty” events, where he’ll bring all the gear himself, making him a one-man party!) He has been providing musical entertainment at weddings, school dances, and corporate venues as well as club events for more than 15 years. Well versed in everything from Top 40, oldies, rock, hip hop, to pop, and a wide variety of house and trap music, Ryan can keep the crowd moving all night!
