Fenton High School Prom 2019 at the Meadows Club in Rolling Meadows

What a way to wrap up the 2019 Prom Season! 

We recently provided our Chicago based DJ services and Photobooth rental services for the Fenton High School Prom at The Meadows Club in Rolling Meadows. This party was definitely on point. 

The school had chosen “Casino Royale” as their prom’s theme and even had casino games set up in the pre-reception area for the students to play before entering into the reception hall. There were about 400 students in attendance to fill this massive venue.

DJ Marc and DJ Paul Michaels spent the night spinning requests and all of the top songs. The Meadows Club, which has a state of the art sound system, was a perfect spot for a prom. The venue was dressed as sharp as the attendees and looked awesome.  With over 40 uplights setup around the perimeter of the room, the atmosphere had a red glow that perfectly matched the theme of the prom.

We also had some fun with two CO2 blasters on the stage. If you’re not familiar with these party tools, they shoot CO2 into the air and add the perfect amount of excitement to any party. We also had a confetti cannon to spray confetti all over the room (and by all over the room, we mean ALL OVER THE ROOM).

One of the things we love about performing at high school events is that we don’t always know what to expect from the crowd. Most events are filled with individuals who have diverse musical interests, but high school students can sometimes difficult to please…as their musical tastes can be extremely eclectic.  Fortunately for us and the crowds we entertain, we work hard to stay up with the current musical trends. High School functions definitely keep us sharp, and make our jobs interesting and exciting.

Our Favorite Event Venues in Chicago: Room 1520

Last week we began our new series about some of our favorite wedding and event venues in the Chicagoland area. If you missed the previous post, you can check it out by clicking here

As we did in the first post, we think it important to mention that our articles aren’t meant to be the end all and be all of event and wedding venues in the Chicago area. Your perfect venue may not even be mentioned in this series… because the perfect venue for you should fit your individual needs, desires, and style. In other words, it should be personal to you and the event your planning. The ones we’re discussing may or may not fit.  

Either way, we can definitely help you find the PERFECT venue (click here to reach out to us)…or at least we can point you towards one of the trusted event and wedding planners we work with on the regular. 

Now…let’s continue the list of some of our favorite venues with Room 1520. 

Room 1520 event venue is located in the West Loop neighborhood of Chicago. It is a spaciously Room 1520 in Chicagorestored historical loft building that features high ceilings, beautiful portrait windows, exposed white painted brick, and a vintage white-washed bar…which is quite large by the way.
 
One of the things we love the most about it is that it is owner operated, and they are always looking for cool new ways to improve the space. Being owner operated also ensures that the service and value are always on point. 

They also offer top-shelf bar packages, so you don’t have to hire a third party to supply your event’s drinks and bartenders. It’s all taken care of for you.

They also have been named “Best Place to Get Married in Chicago”. 

The space features a 4,000 square foot open floor plan with luxurious draping that can be used to divide the room. That way you can adapt the space to your needs. Another of our favorite features is that Room 1520 is so well appointed that it only requires minimal decorating. Of course, if you prefer to add some personal touches for your venue, it will lend itself well to your personal preferences. 

Did we mention that Room 1520 also has an outdoor patio, a rooftop with some awesome city views and photos? No? Well, they have that too! 

If you’d like for us to assist you with booking an event at Room 1520 or discuss the ways we can make your event one that your guests will be discussing for years to come, please feel free to reach out to us via our contact page.

Our Favorite Event Venues in Chicago: Carnivale Chicago

Our Favorite Event Venues: Carnivale Chicago

One of the most frequently asked questions we hear is, “where’s a good place to hold my event?” There are so many great venues in the Chicagoland area, so as you can imagine, it can sometimes be a difficult question for us to answer.

There are many important factors to consider when determining where to hold your event, and the type of venue we recommend often depends on the type of event you’re looking to host. As you can imagine, parties, wedding receptions, corporate events, and other types of celebrations all have their own requirements and vibe. Plus, your needs and wishes should be the most important thing when narrowing down your choices.   

That being said, we do have a few favorites. That is not to say that ones we don’t mention in this series aren’t great…it’s just that we are extremely familiar with the ones we will be writing about. In some cases…and in the spirit of full disclosure…we may actually be on the preferred vendor list for some of them. 

Which is the case with the first venue on our list: Carnivale Chicago. 

Carnivale Chicago

Since 2005, Carnivale has built a solid reputation as one of Chicago’s premier upscale eateries. Just as the name conjures, the decor and cuisine are inspired by the culture of Central and South America. The food, which is awesome, features flavors from Argentina, Colombia, and Brazil. In addition to the Latin fusion cuisine, they offer exotic cocktails and desserts like no other restaurant inside Chicago’s west loop.

Maybe it’s the atmosphere, the food, the acoustics, or something else, but it is most definitely one of our favorites for corporate events, weddings, receptions, and just about any other social event imaginable. There is also plenty of room to host your perfect event. The venue is 25,000 sqft with the largest room holding up to 320 people. For large events, you can rent the entire venue which is rated for a thousand people total. 

If you’d like for us to assist you with booking an event at Carnivale or discuss the ways we can make your event one to remember, please feel free to reach out to us via our contact page.
