    John is your guy for a fun and perfect wedding!!

    A-list DJ's were awesome. The whole evening turned out perfect. John was super nice and professional and made sure we had everything that we wanted. He went above and beyond to make our night amazing. We used clouds on the dance floor during our first dance, which was so cool!! We also used the photobooth on the dance floor and got some very fun pictures throughout the night! John is really good at what he does, and there was never a dull moment because he knew how to keep the night fun for everyone, including the kids AND grandparents. John even made sure he knew where my husband and I were all night and kept an eye on us in case we requested anything specific! He really knew how to read exactly what we wanted without us even having to say it! John kept the place fired up and I will say the dance floor was packed up until the very last song because of how much fun everyone was having. If you are looking for a reliable and fun DJ, A list djs is your place!!!

    John was amazing. I called him the night before as we found some last minute details at rehearsal and he had no problem with accommodating us. After the ceremony he checked in with us and got us some water while we did pictures. He was amazing at the reception as people wanted to come crash our wedding. he played a variety of music to make sure all ages came out on the dance floor which was just awesome. The photo booth on the dance floor was for sure a hit! We got the top package from John with name in lights and all and John stuck to all his promises including playing all the music we talked about. It was just amazing and I barley left the dance floor all night! Thanks John!!!!

    So my now wife and I had done a ton of research and looking for the right DJ company to go with for our wedding. And as you know good music and DJ, next to the food and alcohol, is so important to have at a wedding! So my wife and I had a great opportunity to meet a wide variety of DJ’s as well as the owner John B. From A-list during an open house that The Seville in Streamwood hosted. At this event John broke down every single package available and detailed EXACTLY what you would be getting with each one. They even offered a special deal on these packages at the open house! We couldn’t believe what we would be getting for the price! A-list offers the best price that we could find and there was ABSOLUTELY NO SACRIFICE of quality. So might be a good idea to check one out if you can. At the end of the open house we were able to go around to each DJ and ask questions and get a feel for them. Right away my wife and I knew we found the perfect DJ. His name was Carlos. So before we could drive ourselves anymore crazy looking at more DJ companies we decided to book Carlos on the spot! We also were in need of an officiant and we found out that John B. From A-list could accommodate us with this. We ended up booking him as well a few months after.

    On to the wedding day John B. our officiant delivered an elegant service that my wife and I will remember the rest of our lives. He made the day so easy for the both of us and especially the groom (me). I was beyond nervous and he really put things into perspective for me which made me really appreciate the moment!

    Next the reception.....again Carlos was our DJ and to put it simply he was just amazing!!! My wife and I had our “must play” songs but after communicating and getting to know the DJ from booking them up to the wedding....we felt very confident on his skills at the turntables that we gave him free reign to do what he does best! DJ!!! Thank you A-list (John B & Carlos) you made our night so special!!!

    Mike was so helpful and wanted to make sure everything was the way it was suppose to be. He is kind and you can tell that he likes his job. Every song was where it was supposed to be. He kept the music going and noticed when the dance floor was not going and got people on the dance floor.

    Mickey was an AMAZING DJ. He was very professional to work with and kept the dance floor packed all night. On the wedding day, he was on-time and set up perfectly. I didn't have to check-in because he was already in place and ready to go. He did a great job of following the playlist we had set up and then building a great music selection from that. We went to the A-List open house, which is a great way to see the equipment and meet the DJs without any pressure to purchase their services. It was very relaxed and informative. Thanks for the awesome job!

    Can't say enough good things about John, Tammy and the DJ - Dale. Before our event John and Tammy we so responsive with all our questions and helping us pick the right package for our reception. The week of the event Dale called us up to talk through our timeline and made suggestions on what he thought would work best. He made the comment, "once i pack the dance floor, it stays that way" and he definitely delivered. We chose them because we had a great experience at a friends wedding with Dale as DJ, and he did an awesome job at ours also. Everyone was dancing all night!

    A-List DJ's was an awesome decision for our wedding! The uplighting (which we got as part of a package) and photobooth were fun, but the real star of the show was our DJ, Mike. He was professional, kept the dance floor ABSOLUTELY packed, and wasn't too chatty. He got everyone out on the floor and kept them there all night long! So much fun. Thanks, Mike!

    Everyone I worked with in the office (Chuck, John and Tammy) were extremely prompt and professional. They answered all of my questions in a timely manner. John, the owner, helped me customize a package that would fit my event, and suggested speaker sizes etc. He was never pushy in trying to add additional items, and our conversation was very pleasant/informative. I LOVE their online planning forum. It really helped me streamline everything for the day of! From the event order to song selections! It was extremely helpful for me as well as my DJ to have this all in one location. They were very accommodating, and downloaded about 5 songs that they did not already have in their library. They also shortened the Groom/Mother dance song for me! Erick Molina was our day of DJ--he really kept the party going! Very professional, and kept us on schedule. He had the dance floor packed all night! Erick was assigned to us because we did not have time to attend the open house, but there were no worries with him! He was available the week of by call, text or email. And even accommodated a morning of request for the bridal party entrance song! Erick was awesome! I am very happy we went with A-List!

    From the first time we met with John, we felt very comfortable with A-List DJs. John was familiar with our venue, and drew out where everything would be set up, from the DJ table and speakers outside, to the DJ table and speakers inside. He was very knowledgeable as to where to place the speakers for the best sound quality, without hurting the eardrums of people sitting close to them. The online planning form was easy to use, and allowed us to choose songs that we definitely wanted to play at our reception, songs to include in the song-bank, and songs that would be on the do not play list. We had two songs that were not in their song bank for our ceremony, but they were able to add them for us. Our DJ also had these songs saved as backup in case they didn’t play correctly on the day of. Our DJ was Jeff, who was absolutely amazing. He had great energy, and kept the party going with great tunes. There was never a moment when the dance floor was empty. He played a wide variety of music that appealed to our guests of all ages. Jeff called me two weeks before the wedding to confirm all our details, pronunciation, and answered all of my questions. We had a camera on the DJ stand option--similar to a photo booth--which guests loved: they were able to take a series of 4 pictures while dancing, and received a printout of the pictures almost immediately. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend A-List DJs, specifically Jeff as a DJ for a wedding reception.

    Sam from A - List was fantastic!!! Cannot recommend him and the crew highly enough. If you want a DJ that will listen to what you want, ensure your guests are having a good time and will play music which your guests cannot help but get out on the dance floor to because the music is just that great, then check Sam & A-list out!

    From the beginning, A-List DJs was amazing to work with. They started off with a get-to-know-you event with all of the DJs where you could see a demo of the equipment, talk to each DJ and they even provided free beer and wine. In addition, they had a make-up artist and a photo booth available.

    We chose Mickey from A-List DJs and we couldn't have been happier. He was helpful in planning the events of our evening. Mickey was flexible when we changed up the order of speeches and such. He also had great suggestions for song choices. We mostly let Mickey have free reign over the music for the night, with only a few requests (such as movie soundtracks during dinner). We received a ton of compliments on the dinner music and he kept the dance floor full until the very end. He was gracious with requests, honoring them but checking with us first. He also kept things flowing well by pushing back some things when we were running behind on our schedule so nothing seemed rushed or awkward.

    Everything on our wedding day was wonderful, and a good portion of that was thanks to Mickey and A-List DJs. We would definitely recommend them for any parties or events!

    We highly recommend DJ Sam Bello from A-List DJ's. We now know why he is so in demand. Of course, he is professional, knows music, is responsive to what we wanted and knows how to keep a party going, but so are a lot of DJ's. What surprised us and set Sam apart is he does his work in a way that is not cheesy, obnoxious or 'typical DJ' if that makes sense. He appealed to both the 20-somethings at our wedding all the way through our parents generation. Classy and a whole lot of fun...

    Sam from A-list was amazing!!! Completely professional yet he was able to build relationships with our guests, they couldn't stop talking about him and how great he was both at his skills and personality. My fiancé and I did not even complete our dj request list because we got so busy at the end of planning, but Sam sat down with us and figured out our style and filled in all the holes. He was a life saver!! Plus, we did not have alcohol at the reception and he managed to keep our guests dancing and having a great time!!

    I genuinely loved having Steve as our DJ! He was so helpful and organized on the day of, it took away a lot of my anxiety. He was willing to work with our photographer, he was receptive to guest requests, and he incorporated as much of my playlist as he could. We also used A List DJ's for our officiant and John was direct and professional. I loved all the online planning forms and there was ample guidance to help us through the process of designing a ceremony and reception that was uniquely us. Thank you John and Steve! You rock!

    A List DJs has been great! They are definitely the best bang for your buck! They have been very helping through the process. We also attended a wedding that also used them and it just validated we picked the right company. I know our wedding will be amazing with them! We love Jon so much that we requested him to do our reception!

    Carlos did an amazing job and we couldn't have been happier with the turnout. We had a mariachi band come in and play for our wedding as well, and Carlos worked well to coordinate with them to keep things flowing smoothly and in a timely manner. We loved the mix of music, it was exactly what we wanted and everyone from both sides of the family enjoyed it all. Thank you Carlos!!!!

    A-List DJ's (DJ Pat) were awesome and kept the dance floor packed for 4 hours straight for our wedding reception! We asked them to keep the party going and the choice of music was great. In preparation for the wedding, they were very accommodating with all the details and cared about what we wanted to see/hear. The were also flexible with working with our budget and we really appreciate it! It was great to have them DJ our wedding, especially because they were familiar with The Seville, where we had our reception. We didn't have to worry about much as they set up and broke down everything and worked out the flow of events. Thanks for everything A-List!
