Jay was FANTASTIC! I don't even know where to begin so a list will have to suffice. For background, we had a tent reception (no ceremony) in a backyard for 100 guests.Sent on 07/23/2018
1. Jay was very quick to respond to our initial inquiry and follow up questions. We had a Skype call as we live in NY and couldn't meet in person but got everything arranged through the call.
2. We loved being able to choose songs online through the website-- great selection and easy to use.
3. The price! Least expensive that we found!
4. Jay was timely and professional and needed so little from us. He made everything move along at a good pace and knew exactly how to time things. We didn't have a wedding planner and he really took the reins in terms of introducing us, calling tables for lunch, etc which made things leagues easier for us.
5. The sound was perfect. Loud enough for dancers, quiet enough for people to talk at tables. Someone said "I play at a lot of weddings and it's so common that the music during cocktails and the meal is too loud to hear each other speak but this was perfect."
6. Most importantly-- the music! We gave Jay a basic theme for cocktails and lunch which he executed perfectly. When it came time for dancing, he seemed to magically pick the best songs from our list and still accommodated requests. He was able to read the room really well for a very diverse crowd to get and keep everyone dancing.
Highly recommend. We had the most fun we could have ever thought possible!

Fourth Estate Audio is the best wedding DJ service in Chicago land
If you are looking for the best Wedding experience you can get, look no further than Fourth Estate Audio. I knew from the moment I had met Jay Congdon, President, that my wife and I had found the right company. Jay was polite, professional and best of all completely accommodating. Jay has multiple packages availed to fit any budget, but all of them looked like the kinds of set up and service you would get at a celebrity wedding! Jay walked us through all the options and benefits of each, but never once did we feel any pressure to spend any more than we had budgeted for. I truly got the sense that his main concern was giving us the music (and lighting!) experience we wanted for our special day.Sent on 10/03/2019
But that’s not all! Jay’s DJ Scott Andree was amazing. For beginning to end our wedding (which was at the zoo, very difficult to set up and work audio equipment there) was amazing thanks to the music selections Scott came up with. Which is not to say you can’t provide your own play list. Fourth Estate can either give you complete control (you can give them an entire playlist for the whole event) or is more than happy to provide their own choice based on loose guide lines you give them. And when it came time to announce the wedding party Scott made sure before hand to know exactly how to pronounce names and to let us know what we needed to do when announced. Again, it was the details like that which made us feel Scott really cared about our wedding. He was the best.
I could go on and on, but the bottom line is, Fourth Estate Audio is the best wedding DJ service in Chicago land. Not only are they amazingly accommodating they really do care about you and your special day.

Jay was the perfect DJ for us. He was always in touch but never overwhelming during the planning process. He made the music selection very easy and we heard everything we wanted to hear. We would recommend him to all of our friends as they plan for weddings down the road.Sent on 12/02/2019
