Look No Further!
Nick was amazing to work with from day one! He was so fun and energetic even on our phone call/facetime meetings which made us so excited for our wedding. He was so easy to work with throughout the whole process and always replied so promptly with any questions I had. The website used to add our songs and make our timeline was also very helpful and easy to use. The monthly emails kept me on track with where I should be with planning and made it not at all stressful! At the wedding he kept everyone on the dance floor the entire time and was so helpful throughout the whole night. He always asked how we were doing and was bringing us drinks, and even brought our parents and bridal party drinks throughout the whole night! We would recommend him to anyone in the area!Sent on 06/29/2020
Impulse Entertainment DJs's reply:Thank you so much for your review, Candice! We are so happy that you had a great experience with us throughout the entire planning process and on your wedding day! We love those monthly emails, too! They keep both of us on track for your big day!

Best. DJ. EVER!!!!

Look No Further ---- SERIOUSLY
November 9, 2019
If you are planning a special event in the Chicago area and need a great DJ company look no further than Impulse Entertainment!
From our first meeting with Nick Vera in early 2018 we knew we were in great hands. Nick gets to know you (really know you) as he prides himself and his DJ’s on tailoring the overall program and music to your specific personalities, event type and guests.
Impulse Entertainment is unique as they combine their amazing DJ skills with their understanding of what makes an event successful resulting in the most fun your guests will ever experience. Music was a very important part of our recent wedding celebration and we had specific thoughts about the types and selections that we wanted. Nick not only “got us” but teamed up with my husband to explore various types of music for pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail/dinner hour and of course the dance portions of our evening.
The on-line planning tool that Impulse Entertainment has developed combined with their regularly scheduled follow-ups, email updates and reminders made it so easy for us to customize our evening and keep all of the important wedding details on track. Their knowledge of the wedding industry is evident in reminders about things that are totally unrelated to music but were so helpful to us as we worked to keep everything on schedule. Impulse Entertainment was always in touch with us and answered any questions we had promptly thus removing any stress we might have had as we planned every detail of our wedding. Our guests kept telling us how much they enjoyed the music and the party atmosphere that Nick created for us. Multiple guests approached us during our reception to get Impulse Entertainment contact information for upcoming events they are planning.
When you partner with Nick and Impulse Entertainment you become family. It is not just another DJ “gig” for Impulse Entertainment; it is an important family affair to them, and it is reflected in everything they do leading up to and during the event. Special requests and announcements are handled very professionally. Everyone included in our wedding activities felt special as a result of the personalized and warm introductions Nick made.
Nick checked in with us throughout our reception to make sure that everything was going the way we expected while not interrupting our interaction with our guests. He brought us our first drinks saw to it that our wedding party and VIP guests had everything they needed at all times.
Don’t consider any other DJ company for your event. Any DJ can play music, but Impulse Entertainment delivers a total entertainment experience for you and your guests like no other. Their attention to detail is unmatched by any DJ company we have experienced at events we have attended in the past.

Angela · Married on 09/06/2019
Nick was so easy to work with! He paid attention to every detail we wanted and made sure it got done! He answered any questions we had whether or not they had to do with him specifically. He was very thorough in his work and made sure to double and triple check details with us. His response time was very quick which made the overall process much easier! We couldn’t have asked for a better night!!Sent on 06/16/2019
Impulse Entertainment DJs's reply:Thank you, Angela! We are so happy that you were thrilled with our work! Response times are SO IMPORTANT to keep your stress levels at a minimum - so we are glad that we could make this experience amazing for you and Kyle! Congratulations once again!

Nick kept our wedding day going smoothly, even after a major shuttle snafu
We used Impulse for as our Wedding DJ and photobooth for our wedding 9/6/19. They did an AMAZING job. Nick not only helped keep our schedules organized and our guests grooving, but rolled with the punches when our shuttles arrived 45 minutes late and our ceremony and cocktail hour had to be reversed. Nick checked in on us monthly during the planning process and promptly answered any email questions we sent his way. I definitely recommend hiring Impulse for any event you need!Sent on 09/16/2019
Impulse Entertainment DJs's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Sara! We were so happy to accommodate the changes during the day and wanted to make sure everything still flowed smoothly! A massive congratulations, once again, goes out to you and Brendan! We could not be happier for you both! :)

The best dance floor
Nick was an incredible DJ. He arranged multiple meetings in advance to answer all of our wedding prep questions. He handled everything during the reception with ease so that it ran seamlessly. His music picks were on point which made our dance floor high energy and non-stop! I cannot recommend Nick or Impulse Entertainment highly enough!Sent on 10/29/2019
Impulse Entertainment DJs's reply:Lydia! Thank you so much for your kind words! Your dance floor was EPIC all night long! We are so happy for you and Caleb! Congratulations!

Nick vera: best. Dj. Ever.
Nick recently DJ’d our wedding on 8.24.19. Making the choice to have Nick DJ the wedding was easy. Upon meeting him we fell in love with his enthusiasm and passion for not only music but, people. Nick wanted to get to know us as a couple. I remember at our first meeting he said, “when I leave the house I don’t want to tell my wife I’m leaving to DJ a wedding, I’m leaving to DJ Hannah and Andrew’s wedding and it’s going be awesome!” Nick was right, it was awesome! The dance floor was packed! We got SO MANY compliments on Nick’s ability to transition from song to song, his energy, and his ability to “read” the dance floor! We love to dance and music is so important to us. Nick, understood this and communicated with us on a monthly basis to make sure wedding planning was going smoothly, communicate schedules, and to ensure we were happy with song choices. Nick clearly loves his job, music, and people. That’s what makes him so awesome! Without hesitation I would highly recommend Nick Vera to anyone looking for a DJ for any event!Sent on 08/27/2019
Lauren · Married on 07/19/2019
Nick was so helpful in making our day run smoothly. He communicated well with my other vendors & made sure everything was the way that we wanted. We received many compliments about Nick--not just about the music, but also how he treated my family & bridal party. I would definitely recommend Nick & Impulse Entertainment!Sent on 08/28/2019
Katie Hofmeister · Married on 05/25/2019
Nick Vera (owner) was a joy to work with and was willing to help any way possible through the planing process and at the wedding. Kept the wedding on schedule perfectly. Excellent DJ services, song choices were great and kept the party going! Impulse also offered an easy to use online portal for song suggestions and planning. All of our other vendors praised him for being easy to work with. Lastly, impulse entertainment really takes the time to get to know you and wants the best time possible for you and your event. Thanks for the awesome reception Nick!Sent on 06/03/2019
Cindy Morrin · Married on 01/26/2019
Nick from Impulse Entertainment was an absolute pleasure to work with for our January 2019 wedding. He checked in with us monthly via email to see how wedding plans were going, offer advice if needed, and get to know us personally. He was flexible and understanding with last minute changes and helped us coordinate a lot of the details for the big day because we didn’t hire a wedding planner/coordinator.Sent on 01/28/2019
His passion and excitement for his job is contagious!!!! We had people on the dance floor the WHOLE night and all of our guests were talking about how great he was. Nick would check with the whole wedding party throughout the night, making sure we had drinks & asking how he could help. I would absolutely recommend him for your next event. He was extremely professional and will go above and beyond for you.
Nick · Married on 11/11/2018
Nick's enthusiasm, organization and natural ability to facilitate a wedding reception made our experience working with him one of the most fun parts of our wedding. We were so impressed with Nick every step of the way. We would highly recommend him to anyone!Sent on 05/24/2018
Katie · Married on 10/05/2018
Nick is absolutely the best. I have attended other weddings before that Nick has done and I knew when I got engaged that we had to have him DJ our wedding so he was the first vendor we booked right after we secured our date with our venue. He truly cares about his client’s needs and wants on their wedding day and is always willing to offer advice or answer any questions. He has a type of energy that proves he has a passion for what he does. He made sure to check on us throughout the night to see if we needed anything, and was quick to handle any requests that we had. A DJ can really make or break a wedding reception and Nick truly delivered. It was also great that he sent monthly emails leading up to the wedding especially since you book vendors so far out and do not hear from them usually until a week or so before the wedding so the monthly emails ease your mind that everything is still as planned. We are so thankful that we had Nick as a DJ and would recommend him to anyone needing a DJ for their wedding or any other event.Sent on 10/11/2018

Katie · Married on 07/28/2018
Y'all.. look no further for you DJ needs. We picked Impulse and specifically Nick, because he was the DJ at our best friend's wedding a year and a half prior to ours. We STILL remembered how great the experience was after that long and met to see if he was available for our big day. Thank the Lord he was!Sent on 08/13/2018
Nick is incredibly professional, caring, thorough, and just a blast to work with. It was like having a close friend there on our big day. You can tell that he loves what he does because he does it so well. Some vendors are there and are just counting down the hours until they are done. Not Nick - he genuinely wanted us to have the best day ever and did everything in his power to make sure it happened. He was extremely organized, prompt in his replies and overall such a stress reliever for us. We are recommending him to allll of our friends/family who are getting married.
People - trust me - you don't want to pick a cheap DJ and skimp out on someone who doesn't care about you or your experience. You'll regret it. Go with Impulse! Nick is about people, not the paycheck. BEST. DECISION. EVER. Thanks so much Nick!!!!
Ivan · Married on 07/03/2018
Nick DJ’d our wedding a few nights back. His DJ skills were impeccable and the amount of care and attention he paid towards our needs was amazing. He has a type of energy that proves he has an intense passion for his talent. He made sure to check on us throughout the night to see if we needed anything, and was quick to handle any requests that we had. Definitely recommend him to anyone that requires a proper DJ.Sent on 07/06/2018

Logan · Married on 04/28/2018
First of all, Nick is the man! He was very detail oriented leading up to our wedding day and even gave us tips and pointers about the entire wedding day. Don't be afraid to ask Nick ANY questions as he get's excited about opportunities to go above and beyond! Picking out music for the reception, cocktail hour and dinner time was a lot of fun and Nick definitely took our taste in music to the next level! On the wedding day itself Nick was full of energy but definitely not overbearing as some MC's can be. I can't even count how many compliments we received about our DJ choice so with that said, I 100% recommend using Impulse Entertainment!Sent on 07/06/2018
Connie · Married on 02/02/2018
Nick was absolutely amazing to work with! 20 minutes into our first conversation, my now husband and I were ready to book. We can honestly say that Nick became our friend throughout the process. I mean, how many couples can say they became friends with their vendor?! From day one he was so quick with responding and spent countless hours emailing and conversing over the phone, ensuring our day would be the best day of our lives, literally. I had seen his work at a friends wedding and knew he was the right DJ for ours. He helped with our ceremony music and even coordinated it so I (the bride) could make my entrance at the exact moment of the song that I wanted. He is hands down the best DJ we could have ever asked for. Even our guests were asking for his information and to this day (about three months since the wedding, sorry for the delay in writing this!) people are raving about how awesome Nick was. We love you Nick!!Sent on 04/18/2018
Natalie · Married on 12/30/2017
Nick Vera was AMAZING!!!! We could not have asked for a better DJ. We met with him about a year before our wedding. He was quick to respond, totally worked with us, had a seamless database to coordinate wedding details, and become more than just our DJ! When general wedding questions arose, he was our go-to. He was extremely helpful and was there to remind us to make our wedding our own. He even was there when it came down to me (the bride) playing the sax for my husband at the wedding. He coordinated details that made the day flawless- Nick met with our vendors to make sure all was set to go, had monthly check-ins and an in-person final meeting that was above and beyond, and during the wedding, made sure we were taken care of. As for his ability to get the party dancing, he gets an A++. Not once was the dance floor empty. He song transitions and song choices were top notch. He really is talented and awesome!!! The night would not have been the same without him- he was such an integral part of the wedding and we could not thank him enough for that. Nick truly was a God-send and we really value the friendship we made with him. Do not hesitate to have him as your DJ- he is THE BEST!Sent on 01/15/2018
Joy · Married on 11/18/2017
Nick was THE BEST DJ ever! He is so easy to work with. He is fun, flexible, dependable and knows what he is doing. We got married 6 months ago now and still are so thankful for everything he did. He was able to keep people out on the dance floor and everyone had a great time. He is seriously the nicest guy. You will not be disappointed!Sent on 05/20/2018
Sharon · Married on 11/05/2017
Nick is a true professional from start to finish and was the absolute best choice of DJ for our wedding reception. His joy during the planning process and on the day of the wedding was, in a word, electric. He is a master of his craft, highly attuned to each detail, and I was stunned by how magically he wove together special songs of ours throughout important moments in the reception. Our wedding was the third occasion in which we had the pleasure of watching Nick work wonders, and he consistently delivers. I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat. If you are considering booking Nick for your wedding or any other event, DO it! It's one of the best decisions you will make for you and your guests. Here's to you, Nick! Thank you again for helping make our wedding reception the fun, festive, magical celebration we were hoping to create.Sent on 01/15/2018
Caroline · Married on 10/14/2017
I will be recommending Nick to everyone I can! He was so easy to work with and was always willing to listen to our requests. He would respond to any email in less than 24 hours and is so friendly and approachable. He did a great job of communicating through the entire planning process, but best of all, he really shined on the wedding day. Our dance floor was filled the whole night! Our guests are still talking about it and asked who our DJ was. He knows how to start the party and keep the party going! You are a lucky couple if you have Nick as your wedding DJ. We loved him!Sent on 10/24/2017
Samantha · Married on 10/08/2017
My husband and I booked Nick as our DJ from Impulse Entertainment last minute for our wedding reception October 2017. We passed up many other DJ's before booking and are VERY glad we found him!!Sent on 10/19/2017
Nick was exuberant, he REALLY seemed to love DJ-ing, responded super fast to emails, was a great sounding board to help up plan our wedding (which was all done in just over 4 months!!), was extremely professional, had a great feel for the music that our crowd would like to hear, and met with us around our busy schedule. Everything he promised us and said he would do he followed through with: he even mixed our own "Exit song" and just day before the event helped me find the perfect "NON-here comes the bride" song for me to walk down the aisle to...just so many little details that made our event spectacular.
Truly, Nick gave us top-notch service and is absolutely worth the price; most DJs we had looked at prior to finding him were within a few hundred $'s of his price (in either direction!) and this was (other than the reception cost itself) the most expensive aspect, and to us most important, of our wedding. He had our evening running smoothly, and was essentially not only our "MC" for the night, but kept a timeline and made sure all of the events of the night flowed seamlessly.
He communicated plenty with us prior to and the night of the event and seemed very prepared, able to accommodate our requests, played all of our "must hear" songs, last minute Nick found a great way to tie in my father of the Bride speech around the "special dances"...picked some great songs to get our crowd on the dance floor... we left SO much in his hands and entrusted him to provide us with top notch service and he did!! Cannot thank him enough and are so glad we chose him to be our DJ!
Katie · Married on 10/07/2017
Nick is everything. What an amazing human being. His customer service, his attention to detail, his passionate energy, and maybe mostly his genuine want to make sure you love his service and his work make me so happy I could cry writing this. Nick made the day run RIDICULOUSLY smooth. There wasn't 1 snag or issue. He kept me on time as the bride. He checked in every month to see what we might need. He helped our guests know when to go and take photos during cocktail hour. He literally did it All. I felt like he was another bridesmaid. Nick is unmatched by anyone in the world. We are trying to figure out how to incorporate him every month for some type of event, just so we can be with him again.
My only regret is that we didn't get a photo with him. Truly regret this. He would have been framed in our home.Sent on 10/19/2017
