I found Admit One DJ’s online while researching different DJ vendors; I noticed their Five Star reviews. I was a bit reluctant at first with any company on the internet rather than a recommend service but I was very pleasantly surprised! I do know now; I would be honored to recommend them to ANY Bride and Groom! The dinner music was fantastic, the dance music was awesome and we had people on the dance floor all night long.
We've been to a few weddings this year, and my big priority was a good DJ. I heard horror stories about horrible DJs. I came across Admit One DJs at a bridal show, and their pager got my attention. The groom would get a pager and the DJ would come over and help or get us anything. What we really liked was their Meet the DJ Night, where we could talk to all the DJs available for our wedding. We came across Duffy and knew we found our guy. He really put the effort into making sure everything that was played was something we wanted him to play. Everyone LOVED him, we had absolute blast, and everyone was tired after dancing so much. We couldn't have picked anyone better, and I HIGHLY recommend using Duffy.
To all who are looking for a GREAT DJ service stop here. These guys were great! My wife any I recently became married on Oct. 08th 2010 in Oak Brook Terrace ( Not Oak Brook). The DJ we selected was very attentative and good with feeling out the party. He listened to our every request and maintained a great party atmosphere. We never had to find him using the pager.
This company stands out among the many DJ services we looked at. Not only is their show room inpressive but their sound system is concert quality. The company go's out of their way to explain everything they do and have to offer in a very reasonable amount of time. There is no hidden corners! Not only do you pick out your DJ, but the company throws a party and you get to meet him as well. They work online with you and always can be easily contacted with questions. Basically.... theres no "bullshit" with this place. As you know, there is a lot of headaches and stress already with the planining of the wedding and these guys make this step a good experiance. Thanks for making our special occasion wonderful.
PS Thanks DJ Mathius for dealing with all of the less than sober fireman. Everyone is still talking about it.
Tom was our DJ and he was absolutely the best!! Everyone afterwards kept saying that they have never seen a dance floor so packed all night. He read the crowd and keep them excited the entire time, and played all the songs we requested. We were very happy with Tom, and with all of Admit One DJs. The company is very professional and a pleasure to work with. One less thing to worry about for your wedding day!!!
Greg was my DJ from Admit One. He is the owner of the company, and when we had our first consultation about services, my husband and I immediately fell in love with him. After an awesome experience at "meet he DJ night" we made a special request for Greg to DJ our wedding. To our excitement he was honored to be our DJ. From beginning to end the DJ and photo booth services were amazing. Being a wedding photographer my self, I have seen less to par DJ services and had high expectations. Admit One and Greg lived up to those expectations. After the wedding, all my guests talked about was the awesome music and cool TV's that were displayed though out the reception. I think that is the biggest compliment to Greg, that out of the whole wedding, the music was what the guests were talking about days after. Great Job Greg and Admit One DJ Company!!!!! You Rock!!!
My wedding was absolutely perfect, and the reception was a dream come true, mainly because of the amazing music! Bryan was my DJ, and. Not only did he understand the type of vibe I wanted for my day, he kept everyone on the dance floor the whole entire night!! As a bride, that is exactly what you want to see! Our friends tell us all the time that our wedding was the best wedding they've ever been to, and we even have friends asking for the DJs info to book for their wedding!
Admit One is like no other DJ company. We were able to pick our DJ rather than just having a DJ bid on us. Duffy was amazing, read the crowd perfectly, and didn't make a single mistake! We got tons of compliments on our music and Duffy seemed to just get us and understand us. At first I thought all the phone calls we had was a little too much but then after the fact I knew it was needed to have the perfect reception and in deed it was! I could not have been happier! When we signed for Admit One we actually did not know what most DJ companies charge and we didn't know that most people were surprised we would spend over a thousand on a DJ. But let me tell you, it was worth it! We also got a few deals that should have made the initial price even higher! Admit One made us feel like more than just another costumer, we felt valued more than just a price tag. I was at a wedding recently that the DJ fumbled on so many songs, the entrances and the one that stood out to me the most was the father/daughter dance. The bride actually had to go talk to the DJ! I'm not sure what company he was from but I'm super happy I went with Admit One. No one should skimp on the price of their DJ but the DJ literally runs the reception! Like on a game show, the DJ is the host and Admit One knows what they are doing. Duffy knows what he is doing and he is phenomenal.
My husband and I got married this past September and we had Paul as our dj. He seriously was amazing. He catered to all our needs, asked us any questions through out the night that needed answers. He was very on top of his game for the planning process. Made it very easy and less stressful for us. For anyone getting married I suggest Paul. He rocks! Thanks for making our day awesome!!!!!
The reason we choose admit one djs is because I had attended 9 weddings in the same year and out of the 9 weddings I only remembered 1 of the couples DJ. I asked the bride who her dj was when I got engaged because I wanted to have the same experience I had at her wedding, a memorable one! The bride had Brian from admit one who still works for them. My husband and I had Mattihas who was excellent! I really can not say enough good things about him but being a recent bride other brides should know he was respectful of what song choices we wanted played, he talked to us 1-2 weeks prior to the wedding, we could call him at any time and he would return our calls in a prompt manner, he let us know if songs weren't going to work well, and reviewed his entire play list a day or 2 prior to the wedding to make sure everything flowed well. I will say choosing a D.J. Is a difficult task because as a bride you want your dance floor packed all night, Matthias managed to complete that task with ease. He also kept the flow of the night on schedule which was great. He also gave a fun tip of things that he has seen work well in the past i.e. Fake the first bouquet toss because it makes for a fun picture. Overall you can not go wrong with Admit One D.J.'s they are truly great at what they do!
I found Admit One at a bridal show, they were very personable and did not hound you like some other vendors do, so that definitely got my attention. We liked the idea of the DJ pager and the Meet the DJ night so that you could pick some people you liked. We ended up with Paul as our DJ and could not have been happier. He was great and so professional. My husband and I are not very big music people, but Paul had great ideas and suggestions to make the day our own and keep people dancing all night. The only downfall of Admit One was their introductory meeting. The confirmation email said it would take 90 minutes - we couldn't believe it would even take that long! - but 3 hours later we were finished with the meeting. We are both happy that we decided to go with Admit One for our wedding, but just be aware of what you are getting into for the intro meeting.
Loved working with admit one! The dj that we choose had an emergency at the last minute so Greg, the owner stepped in and worked our wedding reception. I was very happy when I found out Greg was our dj last minute because I had mainly been communicating with him for our consultations. Greg was absolutely amazing. We had some difficult song requests (albanian music) that he was able to find and play for us during our reception. Couldn't be happier.
Great DJ - request Damian! He's the best!
Loved being able to meet & pick our DJ before the wedding too!
The staff at Admit One was extremely helpful with questions I had & giving us the info we needed in a timely manner. Erica was our Dj & she was absolutely perfect. From the time we met her we knew we wanted her to be our Dj. She was upbeat & kept our guests on the dance floor (old & young) all night. She was extremely attentive making sure that everything went perfect on our big day. She kept in contact with me & payed special attention to our requests (like surprising my dad with a dance he wasn't expecting). I could tell she really read the comments I put in (like my moms name being Caroline so we really love Sweet Caroline) by the way she was announcing & what she said. Our guests commented on how great the music selection was! I would recommend Admit One & Erica to everyone I know.
Good in beginning. Some issues at the end. Currently waiting for this to be resolved with management.
One of the best experiences I have had working with a DJ. One of the highlights (aside from working the wedding) was how they have a "meet the dj night" where you get to interview all the djs (in a fun atmosphere with food and drinks) and you get to choose your top 3. You are not assigned a DJ, you get to pick it!!! We got our #1 choice and we were so happy. They help you through song selection, keep in touch regularly, and are so professional. The wedding night we went through the plan once more, he had everything set up before cocktail hour and even had our favorite drinks waiting for us! Seriously, these guys mean business and we were so thankful to have them at our wedding!!
The DJ, John, kept the night going! He worked the crowd well and changed up the type of music to get the most people on the dance floor! They are definitely good at what they do!
I found Admit One DJs at a bridal show. I was immediately sold and set up an appointment with them. My husband was immediately sold too! The way they go about assigning their dj's to the couple is a Meet the DJ night. You go and you get to talk to all the DJ's and pick your top 4. We only had 3 favorites and got our #2 pick. He was in contact with us every week for 6 weeks before the wedding. We went over EVERY little detail possible! I knew we'd be in good hands for our music.
There was only one little thing that we didn't like...He wasn't completely ready when we got to the reception but was ready within 5-10 minutes of us getting there.
Overall, we were pretty happy with Admit One DJs.
Admit one DJs was fantastic!! You actually get to meet a bunch of DJs months before your wedding at meet the DJ night and pick which ones you like best! We got our #1 pick and he was FABULOUS! He really got the crowd going and the dance floor was never empty! Several friends and family have also used this vendor with rave reviews! Check them out!!
My dj was nice enough and went out of his way to accommodate us, but in the end I ended up being disappointed with his performance. He had technical difficulties that resulted in several horrible screeches and he did not read the crowd very well.
One thing I learned, the DJ is like the director for the wedding. They set the mood, create the atmosphere and help it all run smoothly.
The DJ for my wedding was excellent! He made sure that all of the music we wanted was played. He also played the music for the ceremony, even with a last minute change to the music, it went off perfectly.
He set the scene for romance and celebration. He had a wonderful collection of music, and played something for everyone. The dinner music was very appropriate, and as the evening played on, so did the music, the rowdier music, played for most of us left (pretty much the wedding party and close family) at the end of the night had us dancing until they made us leave.
