Great Attention to Detail
C&A is a large DJ company, which obviously has it's pros and cons. We were a little worried about it feeling less personal to be assigned a DJ, but they do a really great job of surveying your needs and wants and pairing you with an awesome DJ. We were very specific about who we were looking for in a DJ and C&A delivered.Sent on 08/27/2019
Our wedding had a few hiccups along the way, but our DJ (Sandra Suave) maneuvered them all night long and still made sure everyone was out on the dance floor. Neither my wife nor I are super music-minded people, but Sandra took care of everything and even gifted us a piece of vinyl from one of our favorite artists! She's the best, and we love the C&A was able to match us up with her. Our only regret was not paying a little extra to have her work our ceremony music as well!

Packed Dance Floor All Night!
DJs can make or break a wedding. Our dance floor was packed the. entire. night. thanks to Cage and Aquarium, and specifically DJ Michael Rodriguez. Cage and Aquarium were great to work with-- they were kind, responsive to questions, and flexible in helping us perfect our wedding. Most importantly, we really cannot say enough good things about DJ Michael, he just absolutely nailed our wedding music for our 7/20/19 wedding. His announcing was great, You can tell he loves his job, and he does it exceptionally well. In the aftermath of our wedding, so many of our guests have specifically told us that our DJ was amazing, and we couldn't agree more! We did the wax wedding package, where we had real vinyl during dinner. It was such a cool effect for our Classic Chicago themed wedding. It's so hard to book a DJ, but Cage and Aquarium have "date nights" where many of the DJs perform small samples, and they all have website profiles, so you can pick someone who matches your music taste. We can't say enough good things about Cage and Aquarium and DJ Michael. You will not have to worry about an empty dance floor.Sent on 09/14/2019

C + A should be your DJ - request Michael!
Michael is hands down the best DJ - definitely worth requesting him to be your DJ for your wedding. Cage and Aquarium were beyond easy to work with, from the initial quote, to their online portal/system, ways to select/rank songs, etc. We also love that you meet your DJ in person leading up to your wedding - this simply helped ensure everything felt streamlined and all set for our wedding day. C + A were NEVER pushy, and we didn't feel they reflected the "ugly" grind of the wedding industry, which we were desperately avoiding during our wedding planning in Chicago. We LOVE they are members of the Green Wedding Alliance - our goal was to have as many vendors that were members as possible to be mindful of the environment, being sustainable and "green." Michael listened to ALL of our requests. Food, booze, and music were our legit top three priorities for our wedding, and Michael met the high bar we expected from him, as everyone raves about him. We noticed our song requests during cocktail hour, as well as dinner, my parents did, his parents, my family and my husband's family LOVED that their song requests were honored during the reception (even the off cuff ones like Spice Girls!). Michael was courteous, fun, and professional. We hope we can find an excuse to hear him DJ again! Use C + A if you want a pain free, budget friendly, amazing music experience - you will not be disappointed.Sent on 08/05/2019
I have worked with DJ's from Cage & Aquarium and know the owners from work in the past - they are a fantastic company! I hope to work with them again in the future.
Shelly and the team at Cage and Aquarium are great to work with. The DJs I have worked with at weddings and other events have been so much fun and guests really enjoy them. Clients are always happy with them.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Kevin at Cage & Aquarium. He went above and beyond helping to get sound into various areas for both cocktail hour and during the reception. He was very professional, easy to work with and did I mention that the music was great! I definitely will be recommending him to all my brides!
