    Flexible and Fantastic

    We decided to use Okyne at the recommendation of our wedding planner. Our DJ night-of (Chris) was fantastic, playing almost entirely songs off our suggested playlist but making good decisions in the moment to keep everyone dancing. We had a full dance floor throughout the event, but the volume and was also such that when we (and guests) needed a break, we could sit and chat without overpowering music. It was fantastic to dance to all our favorite 80s rock classics, and everyone has a great time.

    We also has great sound and lovely music throughout the ceremony, dinner (everyone could hear the toasts), and the DJ did a great job announcing families called over for pictures. Every part of the event ran smoothly, thanks in part to our MC. We also chose to include a looping slideshow of fun photos for the guests, and the projector/screen setup from Okyne was the perfect size (big but not overwhelming for the space) and we got compliments throughout the night.

    Most importantly I should highlight their fantastic flexibility and customer service. We were complicated customers, and they rolled with everything. They gave us a gender-inclusive form to fill out (we're two brides and our wedding party was all-gender), allowed us to send Spotify Playlists for "Must Plays" and "Suggested," completely understood our vague "don't play" descriptions (we're very picky about music), and accommodated our need for specific audio files (I cut our first dance song down to 2 minutes, changed the tempo of our aisle song, etc.).

    Most importantly, they were incredibly flexible with our multiple reschedulings. We signed a contract in late 2019, pushed a Jan 2021 wedding back to Jan 2022, and then with Omicron had to push back to March 2022 with a week's notice. Through it all Okyne was one of the easiest vendors to deal with, and made the stressful process easier.

    The DJ was fantastic, the sound, light, and projection equipment were top notch, and their customer service is a well-oiled machine. Would highly recommend to any Chicago-area couples.

    Great Experience with Okyne Medialab!

    We hired Okyne Medialab to provide a jazz trio and DJ at our wedding. Both exceeded our expectations. We received very positive feedback from attendees about the jazz trio. Additionally, it seemed like the dance floor was packed the entire night. Our DJ did a fantastic job mixing our diverse song requests and reading the energy of the crowd. We will be recommending Okyne to friends and family looking for wedding entertainment!

    Excellent service, made our wedding great!

    Okyne Medilab was absolutely fabulous! The DJ they sent out was perfect for us (Patrick) and knew exactly what to play and when. Seriously, if you’re searching for a DJ service stop right here, no more searching needed, these folks are fantastic! Very quick to respond, work very closely with you to make your experience great and price was very affordable. There’s nothing negative I could even say if I tried; true professional’s and fun at the same time.
