Seriously such a great company to work with!! We hired multiple services with John for our ceremony and reception and were thrilled with EVERY SINGLE ONE!! The music kept everyone dancing at all the perfect times, he was thrilled to work with us planning every detail leading up to the big day, lighting looked amazing, photobooth was the hit of the night (and we still enjoy looking at the photo album he provided :), photographer was great! I have recommended this company to all of our newly engaged friends and would highly recommend to anyone!!Sent on 03/02/2017

Thank you to the MediaMix team for all the great work you did before and during our wedding celebration on October 3, 2015. At one of our first meetings, I had mentioned to John C. that all we really wanted was a fun dance party and that mission was accomplished. Almost everyone was up on their feet the whole night and we are still getting text messages from friends and family about how fun everything was at the wedding. John took our suggestions and put together a great soundtrack for our night.Sent on 10/21/2015
We also want to express our thanks to both photographers, Gina and John. We cannot wait to see the photos and the moments they captured. Gina did a great job with our engagement shoot.
In terms of planning, Laura helped us a tremendous amount. While all the details of the night were pretty wrapped up by the time she got involved as a day-of director, I can't tell you how comforting it was to have her there the whole night, making sure all those plans went off without a hitch. She is top notch.
Overall, I can't say enough good things about the team at MediaMix. The model of how they book services really helped keep everything seamless - I loved being about to sign 1 contract and getting music, photography and planning at once. It was stress-free and more affordable than many of their competitors. We highly recommend this team.
Media Mix Entertainment Inc.'s reply:Lisa, it was our pleasure to work with both you and Jason. Being a corporate planner yourself you were so on top of things making our job much easier. I'm so glad everything worked out so well. My favorite part of the night was watching you two dance outside, pretty cool! We will have the photo proof gallery posted very soon and I'll send you the link. Thanks again for using our services, truly a blessing!

Media Mix Entertainment started off #1 on our list because of the affordable prices for maximum services, as well as professional, personable staff meeting with us locally to plan our event. Many contacts were made over the phone and in person at our convenience to ensure all plans were set as we wanted them. The day of, our two DJs did an excellent job at coordinating our large bridal party entrance, ensuring music was playing outside the venue at the cocktail hour as well as inside for dinner and dancing, and coordinating three cultural backgrounds of music to keep our guests dancing all night! We were extremely pleased and would recommend them to any and all DJ events!!Sent on 09/09/2015
Media Mix Entertainment Inc.'s reply:Andrea, such a fun night, so much fun music! Anthony being a DJ himself was great to coordinate music with. It was great watching the "dance on a cloud effect" work so well for your spotlight dance! It was just as much for for Jeff and myself! Thanks again, such a pleasure to work with you both!

It was a real pleasure working with John. He spent a lot of time with us on the phone and at the venue to make sure everything would go perfectly...and it did!Sent on 10/16/2015

I can't thank John Hockberger (Photophrapher) enough for his hard work and excellent communication! Throughout the entire process he was professional, helpful, easy to work with, and helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. He captured so many beautiful pictures. I just loved the candid shots of the children playing and my friends and family having fun. Most people have to wait a long time to see proofs, but he posted my wedding photos in less than 2 weeks.Sent on 09/21/2015
John Christopher Pignanelli (DJ) was so easy to work during the planning. He responded immediately to any questions that we had. The first meeting with us, we already felt comfortable and he’s very knowledgeable. The website they have was very helpful with setting up my wedding timeline, selecting songs, and making payments. He was so open to our suggestions and came up with ways to make the event even better than we had hoped.
We are extremely pleased and I would definitely recommend Media Mix Entertainment to anyone looking for a great DJ and Photographer!!!
Media Mix Entertainment Inc.'s reply:Thank you Joyce, John and I truly enjoyed ourselves and it was such a beautiful day! You had such a dancing crowd, they kept going all night. It was truly a privilege to work with you both! Thanks again!

John was great to work with for our DJ for our wedding! We also bundled the DJ package with a photobooth which was a great cost saving for us. John was always responsive and provided great insight and options on organizing the flow our our evening. People were on the dance floor the whole night and he did a great job with the ending night "songs" I would recommend John and Media Mix to all my friends!Sent on 10/13/2015
Media Mix Entertainment Inc.'s reply:Meghan and Alex, I really had fun DJing your event. The Murphy, while tough to load in, is an amazing venue! I really enjoyed catering to both the latin music crowd and the top 40 crowd, they we're such fun. Thanks again, Gerald and I had a great time with you and your guests. Truly our privilege thank you!

The vendor was a delight to work with! John was informative and available to answer questions leading up to our wedding. He was extremely helpful, easy to work with, and made the whole process easy. Our DJ, Mike, was great! He kept the party going and worked really well with us. Overall, it was a great experience and they were both wonderful to work with!!Sent on 10/18/2015
Media Mix Entertainment Inc.'s reply:Hi Teri-Jean, Mike mentioned how much fun he had. So much fun you extended the time and kept going. Mid-America Club is such an awesome venue with amazing views. We look forward to working with any of your friends or with you on an event in the future. Thanks again for using our services!

Gina, Mike and Scott provided amazing service at my wedding. I was a little bit of a difficult bride but they adjusted to all of my last minute changes and requests without fail. They truly went above and beyond my expectations and everyone that joined us for our special day had a great time. And throughout all of the planning, John was patient and worked with me to get all of my details lined out.Sent on 07/02/2015
Media Mix Entertainment Inc.'s reply:Mary, thanks for your kind words. The staff really enjoyed sharing your special day. We truly enjoy bundling packages together to surround our clients with good quality service. I really like the way you album turned out. Thanks again for using our services!

John put his heart and soul into making sure that we got what we wanted on our wedding day. He is extremely knowledgable and willing to work through every need. He kept the flow of the party going and made sure that the dance floor was never empty. He was efficient, friendly, and determined to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. I would recommend him and have recommended him others.Sent on 06/09/2015
Photo booth- Provided great props, a nice scrapbook for others to write in, a flash drive with all the pictures. The staff for the photo booth were great.
Media Mix Entertainment Inc.'s reply:Nick and Jenny such a fun wedding you had. The Merchandise Mart Plaza has such an amazing view. You were right you have a dancing crowd! Makes our job much easier, they just wouldn't stop. Thanks again for using our services, truly our pleasure!

Let's begin with WOW! I had a dream for my wedding day and Media Mix nailed it! My first meeting with John was different than other companies. He wasn't trying to book us immediately, he was obviously looking to spend time helping us plan and discover options. I was able to pick the staff before booking and I met each of them and made plans with them directly before the big day. Our day-of-coordinator helped keep us on track all day. We had a DJ/Band combo, the band played for cocktail and dinner and also our first dance, then the DJ rocked it too! We already have our highlight video and our proof gallery of photos to select from for our album it all looks amazing. The table decorations were just as we were shown in their studio and the lighting and other decorations were fabulous. Thank you Media Mix you truly provided everything we asked for and so much more! Make sure you check them out, we looked at other services but Media Mix was different from the start.Sent on 06/13/2015

John at Media Mix went above and beyond our expectations. He really worked with us to meet our needs. He even helped out by being our officiant during our vow renewal ceremony. Thank you John! I also wanted to say thanks to Gina. During our planning session, I had told her that I like all different kind of shots and even the cheesy kind. On the day of the wedding, she told me that she came prepared with different cheesy poses for us to try. I absolutely loved how they turned out! Thank you Gina! I can't wait until I get our photo album.Sent on 06/02/2015

Excellent all-around. John (DJ) and Gina (photographer) were prompt, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. On the day of the wedding, whenever we needed to find one of them, esp Gina, I would turn around and they were already right there! My favorite feature Media Mix offers is the database in which we could fill out on our own time: the ceremony program, select any songs we wanted/didn't want, photography shots we definitely wanted/didn't want, etc. I also believe they are affordable for the quality of work they provide.Sent on 07/06/2015

John was a great asset to my wedding day. During the whole planning process he was very organized and responsive. I loved the website portal, it made it so easy for the planning process as well as making payments. We had calls and met in person when needed to finalize some details. During the big day I felt like John completely understood the vibe we were going for. The music selection was great and exactly what my groom and I wanted. Multiple guests came up to me during and after the wedding to compliment the music and how great the party was. I also had a request for him not to take requests from the guests which he did with great professionalism. I have nothing but great things to say, and you should hire John for your wedding or big event!Sent on 04/07/2015

John Christopher was truly an easy delight to work with! Everything from arrival to completion of the event was smooth and flawless with his services. He is very attentive to the crowd and knows how to react appropriately to keep everyone happy. I could not be more impressed with his services and the company in general. Will definitely use them again in the near future and recommend to all!Sent on 11/12/2014
Elizabeth · Married on 10/11/2014
So amazing! We met Media Mix at a Bridal Show and noticed their video so much more clear than others. In speaking with them they weren't on the prowl to book us but ready to listen and offer expertise. I wanted low key and low tech but my, Fiancé, wanted lights and video etc.Sent on 10/21/2014
Media mix was able to deliver the high tech my husband wanted but it was very tasteful and surpassed my expectations. We had them make the dance floor white and they matched our gobo light to the floor monogram and also created a video version to play on the huge video screen between our photos, videos and watching ourselves dance on screen... so fun!
We're waiting on our photo proofs but have already seen our highlight video, it's so wonderful. Everything from the announcements to the lighting, the photo and video team and the great music, we truly had the time of our lives.
Media Mix Entertainment Inc.'s reply:Elizabeth, it was such a fun event for all of us we're so glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for the review!
Tanya · Married on 10/11/2014
John was absolutely amazing and made our wedding a night to remember! Our dance floor was never empty and even a year later, my husband and I still get compliments on how fun our big day was. None of that could have happened without John! He was so much fun to work with and made the entire process seem so simple. He made sure that the night was about us and he was able to translate our personalities through our music. I can't say enough about how thankful we are - our night could not have been better!Sent on 10/18/2015

Lets start with some WOW! Extremely Happy together and with Media Mix. It was more then what we thought we would end up spending on a DJ. I have a family member back in the south that does weddings, and I used to help out on the weekends. It's called Dance Dance Dance and it's in a small town called Evansville, IL. But with all this said, I'm so happy we trusted John Christopher PignanelliSent on 10/16/2014
Media Mix Entertainment Inc. Our family and friends had an amazing time. If you want some WOW, then look no further. We will be life long customers. John, you hit it out of the park over the bushes.
Media Mix Entertainment Inc.'s reply:Louis, a sincere thank you for the review, my pleasure to work with you. Dinolfo's is an easy place to work at, and the nicest venue in the area!

After meeting John the first time we both felt Media Mix was the best choice. We were planning from out of state and had limited time to be here. They have an amazing planning system tied to their site which made it so much easier. The next few times we came to town we got to meet our DJ, Photographer and Videographer at our location.Sent on 10/20/2014
By the time the day arrived we were very comfortable and everything was handled as planned. We were relaxed and enjoyed the entire day and danced until the last song with our guests. We couldn't imagine anything more, it was as we, well, as I had planned lol.
If your looking to save money and more importantly time and headaches talk to Media Mix for DJ, Accent lighting, Photobooth, Photography, Video and everything they offer!
Media Mix Entertainment Inc.'s reply:Wow, thanks for the kind words. Truly our privilege to work with you on your special day. We're glad we were able to help make things come true for you.
Mike · Married on 08/23/2014
We used Media Mix Entertainment and John Christopher Pignanelli for our DJ at our wedding on 8/23/14. John was easy to work with and accessible leading up to the wedding as we had multiple phone calls with him to go over how we wanted the night to work. When the wedding day came he was very professional and kept the dance floor packed the whole night with great music. I would give Media Mix Entertainment a serious look if you need a DJ in Chicago.Sent on 08/29/2014
Media Mix Entertainment Inc.'s reply:Thanks again such a fun crowd to DJ for, brought back memories of working on radio mix-shows. It was like B-96 or KISS FM all night long. Thank you!

Media Mix DJ Will Pagan kept our whole party entertained. He was ON every moment and transitioned our magic moments perfectly. Gina seemed to capture the perfect shots! She was everywhere! Can't wait to see her work on the final photos. Scott was so easy to work with and was definitely on the run as proof in lots of pics taken by family. We had an amazing time and knew an hour in that we were in good hands with Media Mix! Thanks to your whole team John!Sent on 08/15/2014

We had John with Mediamix entertainment as our dj. From the beginning I loved working with them. John did not pressure me into making a decision and answers all of my questions when ever I had them. A lot of company's will try to pressure you into picking their company. I met the djs at a bridal show. John was so professional, gave his input when I asked for his suggestions and he was so flexible with his time. I found out about a month before my wedding that there would be another event in my reception room up until one hour before my reception was to begin. When John found out he told me that he would be there before that time and be ready to set up. When it came to the introductions he made sure everyone knew where they were going and in what order, which made me very comfortable. During the reception most people left after the dinner but John kept the party going! He honestly did an amazing job and I am so happy I picked him and his company as our wedding Djs. Also, their wedding site where you set up all your music is a life saver! You basically plan your wedding the way you want and pick all of your songs. I enjoyed being able to pick what my priority songs, secondary songs and being able to out certain songs on the do not play list! Just something else to think about.Sent on 09/21/2014
Media Mix Entertainment Inc.'s reply:Thank you for the positive review, I'm so glad you found our on-line planning system helpful. Thanks again!

John has been great to work with from beginning to end. Prior to even signing a contract John spent an hour with us discussing his services and showing us the the website. He helped us every step of the way to ensure that our music was exactly what we wanted for our big day. He was able to find the songs that we wanted that weren't on his list and went above and beyond to make our day extra special. In addition to excellent customer service Media Mix has the most AMAZING event planning software, it made the whole process so EASY and fun! I would recommend this company again and again to any future brides!Sent on 07/22/2014
Media Mix Entertainment Inc.'s reply:Thanks again! I'm so glad you found our service and software helpful and enjoyable, it was a fun time for me too.
