Beep Media is the antithesis to the cheesy music and approach of the typical DJ company. No line dances, no YMCA, no embarrassing antics.
Voted "Best of Weddings" by the Knot for the last three years in a row. Recently reviewed by Time Out Magazine as Chicago's best alternative DJ company.
The DJs of Beep Media are music fans who like to play fun music for people to dance to. We are
not celebrities or entertainers who want to be the center of attention. We don't wear sequin
vests. There's no gimmicks, no flamboyance, no props, no fog machines, no cheesy lights, no
hula-hoops, no leprechaun tossing, no schmaltz—just great music presented in a non-flashy
Our goal is to provide music for people who are looking for something other than the typical
crowd pleasers like, "Y.M.C.A." or "The Chicken Dance" and "The Hokey Pokey." (Though if Aunt
Ethel demands it and will write you out of the will, and it is okay with you, we'll play it.)
We are a group of folks with a broad musical knowledge base and big musical library and the
skills to mix a variety of music together in a way that will get your party started, quickly.
If you are inquiring about our availability, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us
know the date of your event. We will reply with availability and pricing options. You may also
contact us at our office number at 312.751.2227.

John Londay was our DJ at our wedding at the Newberry Library and he was GREAT!! Professional, on target with our music taste and just plain cool :) We skyped a couple times in order to get the logistics scheduled, which was convenient but still as personal as a in-person meeting. We wanted music starting with classics of 60, 70's and then through the reception to slowly move up in the generations until the end of the night being more contemporary music. He did an absolutely awesome job and literally had the dance floor packed the entire night... and i'm not exaggerating! Thankfully I have a dancing family so as long as there are good tunes, they are out of their seats. I would definitely recommend Beep and specifically John L.

First, hire DJ John San Juan from Beep Media-especially if you are getting married at Cheney Mansion. Then read the rest of this review. John San Juan provided the music for our Sept. 2, wedding reception at the Cheney Mansion in Oak Park. He clearly showed up with the intention to make our wedding fun, not just to do a job. And he truly made it perfect - more than any other single vendor. 1. When Cheney Mansion tried to shut us down early, John saved our wedding by continuing the party. We had the place reserved until 11pm, the bar was supposed to close at 10:30 and the music end at 11. This was very clearly laid out, but the lady working for the mansion closed the bar at 10 and tried to stop the music then too! This is not the first time they've pulled this, but still very not cool. John just kept playing and I didn't find out what was going on until 10:20, when I went to get a water from the non-existent bar. John saw that the party was still going and, despite the mansion's very shady instructions, played until I gave him permission to close down at 10:30 to preserve peace with the mansion. He was working for us, not the wedding venue! 2. He was very cordial and professional. He did not make himself the center of attention. He also worked with my dad, who had a special surprise planned for us. Beep as a whole was very prompt getting back to me. 3. He was really into the music. He took all of our requests and no-plays and added great songs. He didn't screw up our favorite songs by remixing them (although I'm sure he's capable of it). He's really excellent at music! 4. His service is affordable-more than affordable! We booked him for 5 hours, but he showed up to be set up before our ceremony and therefore was there for over 7 hours! Also, Cheney mansion is three floors and he provided all necessary equipment. We even ended up using his mic for the ceremony, no charge. I wish I could hire John again and again.

We couldn't be happier with our Beep Media DJ, Barry. We chatted on the phone before the event so he could make sure he understood what type of music we liked and the feel we wanted for our wedding. He always responded quickly to emails, and answered any questions. They even have a song sampling list to help people explain what types of music they like. We like a variety of types of music and Barry did a great job mixing it up playing great music from many genres while keeping everyone dancing all night. Even after dancing for hours, everyone wanted to keep dancing at the end of the night and Barry helped us get set up to have ipod playlists for after hours dancing music after his time was over. Our family and friends said they are still sore a week later from dancing all night. We'd give more stars if we could!
