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.
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! Loved being able to meet & pick our DJ before the wedding!
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.
My fiancé and I were referred to Admit one Djs by by sisters neighbor. I knew that they had a great experience. I can't describe how pleased we were when we had finally had our wedding night. Everything was magical! Thanks to admit one Djs.
All the great reviews, what else can I say? I can sum my experience up with just one word: "SPECTACULAR!"
My wife and I chose this company based on a recommendation from the venue space we chose to use for our wedding. Must admit that they were excellent. Between all the other elements to plan and execute, we didn't spend as much time as we should have giving pre-event input to the DJs. This, however, did not seem to be a problem the day of; they hit it out of the park.
They had explained to us how the DJs essentially act as timekeepers to keep the various events flowing, whether it's the cake cutting, garter toss, etc, and this is exactly what they did.
The wife and I were very impressed with John who DJed our wedding. Nice and professional individual who knew how to read a crowd and keep everyone dancing and happy.
Listen up brides and grooms to be... Book Admit One as soon as you can!!! If you want your guests to dance their butts off, there is no better DJ company to make this happen.
If I could give them 10 stars I absolutely would. When looking for DJ's for my wedding, I found the experience to be slightly challenging as the wedding entertainment market is flooded with vendors claiming to be excellent. While they might be, we had a few qualifications:
1.) No douchebaggery from the DJ meaning no cheese, no weird music, and no chicken dance.
2.) FUN! We wanted good music that flowed. A few old school jams, some rap, some hip hop, some house. Basically appeal to all ages.
3.) Good energy and professionalism from our DJ.
Our DJ Nate exceeded our qualifications and could not have done a better job. Not only is he one of the nicest people I have met in a very long time, but he was excited to be at our event. He showed up on time and set up right away. He spun all night and my only regret was not having him start earlier. Love this guy and he is worth every penny and more.
We met few services who were as professional as Admit One DJS. These guys really have a first class operation! They went above and beyond from getting us cocktails to making sure all our family and other service people were on the same page before announcing anything. Couldn't be happier! We will recommend them to everyone.
We absolutely loved our DJ-Duffy. He did an amazing job. We loved the fact that we were invited to a "meet the DJ" night where we were able to meet all the DJs in person and actually select the DJ of our choice after meeting them all. It was extremely fun, and we feel we chose the right man for the job. We had a crowd up and dancing until the very end of the night. It was awesome!
Admit One has you sign a contract and put your down payment down before meeting the DJ. Then about 3-6 months prior to your event you go to a meet the DJ night to choose your top 3 picks. The event is only 1 night and you get a few weeks notice. With my husbands schedule it was very difficult so he wasn't able to attend. In the future I think they should really consider offering at least 2 dates. For anyone who has to travel for business it makes it hard.
There was only 1 DJ I was excited about, so I was really hoping I would get him because I was a little concerned about my other options.
I was thrilled to find out that I was getting my 1st pick.
2 weeks before my wedding date I was notified that there was a family emergency and he wouldn't be available for my wedding date that was 2 weeks away. I was assigned a replacement DJ. The replacement did do a great job, he was very accommodating and friendly. He did a very nice job and I was happy with him, it just wasn't who I really hoped for.
