So much fun posted 5/31/2011 (modified 10/27/2014)

KC was great to work with. He kept our guests on the dance floor the whole time. He made sure to adhere to our do not play list, and kept up on our schedule for the evening. KC also did our uplighting for the event which was amazing and exactly what I was looking for. The planning sheets online made planning the night very easy for my husband and I. The only thing I could ask for was more communication before the wedding. Everything went perfect the night of though and in the end that is all that mattered!

FUN, Professional, and Knowledgeable posted 8/3/2012 (modified 10/27/2014)

Hands down, the best wedding entertainment! From the very first steps in our planning process, Keith Christopher Entertainment was both able and willing to ease our planning anxiety. While working personally with Keith, we were always confident that no detail would be left unnoticed—including numerous aspects of the evening that would never have came to our minds. Organizing the pieces of our large wedding (270 guests) was overwhelming, to say the least, and the planning forms and step-by-step consultation meeting with Keith, were amazing assets. Keith was not only knowledgeable, but also extremely helpful in suggesting relevant musical selections and in setting an agenda/timeline for our reception. He communicated with staff at our reception facility to ensure that the evening ran exactly as we had planned and worked fluidly with our other vendors—professional at all times. We truly did not have to think twice about anything!

Most importantly, the dance floor was literally packed the ENTIRE evening. Our Keith Christopher Entertainment team blended our personal requests with the needs and desires of our guests. From the young children to our elderly family members, EVERYONE was up dancing throughout the evening. Months later, family and friends are still complimenting our phenomenal reception—specifically noting how much fun it was to be up and having fun all night. Time and time again, we’ve heard, “Your DJ kept everyone involved—I cannot remember a wedding where so many people were up dancing all night long!”

Another aspect we especially appreciated was the ways through which the evening was personalized. Keith Christopher Entertainment’s story-like introductions were a unique touch that engaged all guests and created even more anticipation for our early reception formalities. While watching our reception DVD, we still get chills to hear Keith Christopher’s portrayal of our first date and the progression of our love.

Our wedding day was simply amazing! Keith Christopher Entertainment went above and beyond to ensure that the beauty and fun of the evening were enjoyed by ALL guests, ALL night long! If you are looking for entertainment that is personalized to fit your wedding day vision, staff who are responsive, friendly, and knowledgeable, and entertainment that will guarantee everyone raves about the fun of your reception months and months later, working with Keith Christopher Entertainment is an easy choice to make!

Great and Professional DJ - Excellent Customer Service posted 11/5/2014 (modified 11/18/2014)

KCE is a great and budget friendly company to work with for your wedding or any event that may need a DJ! We really enjoyed our experience with KC from beginning to end. All of the staff was very pleasant to work with and answered all of our questions quickly. Great customer service. KC (the owner) was our DJ for the big day and he kept everyone dancing all night! We are still hearing great compliments on our wedding almost 5 months later and our DJ played a big part in that!

Amazing Service, Great People posted 11/3/2014 (modified 11/18/2014)

We hired Keith Christopher based on a review from my best friend, who also used them for her wedding earlier this year. We picked out our DJ at one of the meet and greets they host each month. Definitely worth your time to go, the different personalities of the DJs could make or break how you work together. We went with Marty, who was great. The coordinator at the venue praised him as well, marveling at how good he was to work with. He read the crowd well and announced everything so people heard it (unlike some jumbled sounds you get at some events). He was great and came up a few times to make sure me and the groom had everything we needed and that we were enjoying the night. We have gotten great feedback from the wedding (it was pretty awesome overall) and everyone loved the music. Definitely a great find.

Totally worth the money posted 10/29/2014 (modified 10/30/2014)

Their pricing is a bit more than most and I was a little worried about spending the extra money, but I am so glad that I did.

I have been to 6 weddings in the past year and I am not saying this becuase it was my wedding, I am saying it because it is true.

"WE HAD THE BEST WEDDING." The dance floor was packed fromt the first song of the night to the last song of the night. People I have seen at the other weddings that didn't dance, danced all night long.

All I can say is THANK YOU.

Keith with Keith Christopher Entertainment did our wedding on 1/4/14. My husband and I found him online. Keith has a passion for what he does and takes pride in a job well done.

Throughout our planning process, Keith responded to emails very quickly. Any questions or concerns we had were promptly addressed. We gave him our timeline, a list of some songs we wanted played (some we did not want played) as well as genres we liked and trusted him to do the rest on our big day. He did a great job. During the reception he kept us on track with timing, announcements, things like cutting the cake, etc. He was so polite and professional to both us and our guests. His coordinating the reception allowed my husband and I to relax and enjoy ourselves without worrying about the flow of the evening.

We also had the photo booth and uplights part of our package. These too were great add-ons and our guests loved them.

I know the reason the dance floor was packaged all night is because of the music played by Keith.

If you are looking for impeccable service – you found the right DJ for your upcoming event.

Glad I chose this company! posted 10/21/2014 (modified 10/27/2014)

Being a DJ myself, finding someone to play for my wedding proved to be very difficult because I am very picky. My wife and I searched through what seemed hundreds of companies. We came by Keith Christopher Entertainment and decided to check them out. Ten minutes into our first meeting we knew that we had found the right people. Day of - everything flowed smooth, they were very professional, THEY GOT EVERYBODY'S NAMES CORRECT. The people who generally do not dance... Danced, I couldn't believe it. All around a very good company, I highly recommend.

Awesome company, Awesome DJ posted 10/20/2014 (modified 10/27/2014)

From the first time I found this company at a bridal show I knew that I wanted them for my wedding. We met Michael and he gave us a brief overview of the services they offered. He seemed really knowledgeable and down to earth but also really excited about what he does. We were contacted a couple days after the show and invited to a meet and greet. Michael was there along with several other DJs and the owner KC. Everyone seemed friendly and we had some good food and drinks. The meeting was at their showroom in Schaumburg and I must say I was really impressed. They showed us a photobooth, uplighting, and a really nice DJ system that sounded great. After talking to several DJs we met with Daryle and booked a Premier DJ Package along with a photobooth and selected Michael to be our DJ. Michael assisted us with every phase of our planning including helping us use their online planner. We were able to contact him whenever we wanted and he always responded within 24 hours. He helped us with our timeline and in selecting songs for introductions and for our garter and bouquet. He also made some great suggestions for cocktail and dinner music. After we completed our forms we came in for a final meeting to go over details and felt totally confident that we were going to have a great reception. We had Michael's phone number's and his email in case we needed to contact him about anything last minute. We did not need to talk to him about anything in that last 5 days but it was sure nice knowing that we could call or text him if we needed to contact him. When we arrived at our reception all of the DJ equipment and lights and the photobooth were set up. Music was already playing and Michael immediately came up and congratulated us. It was like seeing an old friend. He said he would stay in touch throughout the night to keep things on schedule and to enjoy the cocktail hour and pictures and that he would get everyone lined up just before 7:00 for introductions. Once we finished taking pictures and having a drink we were ready to be introduced. Michael lined us up and went over everyone's names as he put them in place and we could tell how many times he had done this before. He gave us some brief instructions and then went inside to begin announcing us. His introductions were amazing. As our parents and each couple were introduced it was really cool hearing everyone cheer. He built up the energy so much that by the time were introduced it was awesome. When the doors opened and we walked in it was amazing. It was the best feeling ever. We cut our cake and then it was time for our first dance. We had provided some information about us like how we met and where I proposed to my fiancee to Michael ahead of time. Before our first dance he did not just introduce us...he told the most romantic love story about us. It was really cool and then we danced to our song. Between the toasts and dances with our parents that we did during dinner Michael's skills as an MC really shined. He makes every feel special. After dinner we kicked off the dancing and the party rocked from the get go. We heard our requests and our guests were able to make requests and the dancefloor was packed all night. The photobooth was so fun and our friends loved it especially the fun sunglasses and hats. We could not have asked for a better night and I would recommend Michael as a DJ and Keith Christopher Entertainment for anyone's wedding.

Best DJ EVER!!! posted 10/16/2014 (modified 10/27/2014)

I could not be happier with my decision to have Keith Christopher Entertainment as my DJ! My husband and I were really concerned with the atmosphere at our reception...our main goal was for everyone to have an amazing time! I was worried about choosing a DJ, as it is the one vendor you can't easily "see" their work. We could not have made a better choice! KCE provided the sound system for our outdoor wedding ceremony and the sound was awesome! The emceeing during the reception was great, and the dance floor was PACKED the entire time...we were even able to extend the dancing an extra half hour at no charge. You will not regret choosing Keith Christopher Entertainment!

Hands Down the BEST in the Business!! posted 10/16/2014 (modified 10/27/2014)

My husband and I were married this summer, and we chose Keith Christopher Entertainment to DJ our wedding simply because KC is THE BEST!!! This is definitely the company to go to if you want your event to rock! KC and his staff are very professional, accommodating and super enjoyable to work with. They really made planning this portion of our wedding seem effortless. KC was extremely helpful in working with us to ensure our wedding day would be perfect--and he was VERY successful!!! His MC skills are phenomenal, especially with how he personalizes all the little details which makes a world of difference. And Daryl, his DJ, kept our guests dancing ALL night! We are beyond happy with KC and his crew. Our wedding would not have been the same without them. Also, I have attended quite a few of his Windy City Wedding Shows (Bridal expo & fashion show), and they are fantastic!! This is a great way to be introduced to him, his company and other vendors to plan the big day or any other event! Absolutely wonderful!!! No way you'll be disappointed.

Great Wedding Entertainment!!! posted 9/3/2014 (modified 10/27/2014)

Keith Christopher Entertainment Group did an amazing job at my August wedding. My husband and I worked with Daryle and he was so easy to work with. He asked us questions that helped him decide what music we would really enjoy during the wedding. Our guests couldn't stop saying how great they thought the DJ was. He also listened to requests made by some of our guests and it was so fun. People were on the dance floor all night long! We are so happy with our choice to have Keith Christopher Entertainment Group DJ at our wedding, and I would recommend them to EVERYONE who hasn't booked their DJ yet!! They were great!

Amazing Service! posted 8/7/2014 (modified 10/27/2014)

Keith Christopher Entertainment was an excellent DJ service that we used for our wedding ceremony and reception.

The staff worked with us throughout the wedding planning so we could have everything the way we wanted it. During our special day, they ensure that the ceremony and reception ran smoothly. For us, we had many foreign names in our wedding party, but they worked with us so they would correctly pronounce everyone's names. We were very happy!

Our DJ and MC were professional and kept our guests happy. My uncles kept raving about how the DJ had an extensive selection of music - they were able to request all their favorite 70s and 80s songs!

The DJ kept the guests dancing, and played the songs we requested. It was a blast!

KC Entertainment is an excellent DJ business, and I cannot recommend them enough. They are professional, easy-going, polite, and fun!

DJ and Uplighting posted 6/30/2014 (modified 10/27/2014)

We decided to go with Keith Christopher Entertainment after talking with a few DJ companies. We got the Basic Package because it was reasonably priced and added uplighting to it. We were told that we would be able to choose our own DJ (normally a part of the higher package), since we had booked uplighting with them as well. We chose Daryle because we wanted a DJ who knew Spanish music. A couple weeks before the wedding as I was looking at our planning form online (which is set up very nicely) and it said our DJ had changed to Mario. I emailed and called Keith Christopher a few times and finally got clarification as to why that changed. Another couple had gotten a higher package and wanted to choose Daryle, so they were able to have him instead of us. I explained why I had been able to choose our DJ, but no comments were ever written down in our file about this and the person who had helped us had retired. Honestly, it was not a big deal because they found a DJ who also knew Spanish music, but I just wish I had been notified of the change instead of just coming across it on the planning website. I guess that was just some mix-up in communication.

As for the actual services on our wedding day, the uplighting looked really nice (we had purple uplights) and our DJ did a fantastic job. Mario played slower and older songs at the beginning to get people dancing who might leave early. He also included quite a few Spanish songs and knew when to play them during the night. The last few hours really picked up with the music and a lot more people were on the dance floor. He also coordinated things very well with us for our dances, cake cutting, bouquet/garter tosses, etc. and always took cues from us. He played almost every song on our play list and read the crowd very well! He also helped me in the days before in coming up with songs to have for our slideshow and various parts of the reception, which helped me out a lot! I truly appreciate his hard work and felt that he really made our wedding that much more enjoyable!

Bottom line: Great services for a very reasonable price, just make sure to get things in writing =P

Fantastic DJ posted 4/1/2014 (modified 10/27/2014)

We used KC Entertainment for our wedding at Revolution Brewing. They were very professional and easy to work with. We met with them a few times before the wedding and they called us twice the week of to confirm everything. Daryl was our actual DJ and he was phenomenal. He played everything on our must play list plus many more. He really read the crowd and the dance floor was filled the whole time. When he surprised us by having everyone serenade us with Sweet Caroline it was one of the best moments of the night. He was such a wonderful person to work with and we could not have asked for a better DJ.

Dance floor was packed all night long! posted 3/27/2014 (modified 10/27/2014)

Kevin and I got married on New Years Eve and hired KC to DJ our wedding. We had a VERY untraditional wedding and he had no problem following our unique ceremony song requests as well as our indecision pretty much until the day before on our first dance song. We sat down to meet him at the Lincoln Park location and he went through all of the packages with us in detail and offered up suggestions. We used Keith Christopher Entertainment Group for their dj services as well as lighting. I'm very happy we took his recommendations on lighting especially since our event was held at a white loft space. Also, with the venue being a loft we had to highlight where the dance floor was so our guests knew and he did a great job with the lighting.

It was a great night - we had people doing the worm and high jump splits. The dance floor was consistently packed and KC did a great job mixing up the songs for the older generation of guests and Kev and my more modern tastes that include some techno. :) He also makes it very easy with his online planner to add your favorite songs so those are played throughout the evening. The DJ was an easy part of the wedding planning and we couldn't have been happier.

Not too impressed... posted 12/29/2013 (modified 10/27/2014)

Our wedding was July 20, and because we are out of state, we had to find DJ's by viewing their websites and talking on the phone. This vendor has awesome reviews, so we thought we'd call them and talk to them to see what they had to say. I don't remember names, honestly, but the man with whom we spoke on the phone was very professional, very knowledgable, and answered all of our questions. It seemed like the best vendor to go with.

Generally, the service was okay. The dance floor generally stayed packed, which was a good thing.

I wasn't happy that they did not cover the songs we wanted covered on our list. The song that was truly important to me, "Mama's Song" by Carrie Underwood, was meant as a tribute to my mother who passed away 7 years ago. He completely forgot about it. Many members of my wedding party had to go and ask for him to play it, and by then, most of the guests had thinned out. I couldn't put into words how upset I was.

In general, I would encourage you to do some digging before you commit to a DJ for your wedding.

They made the whole reception amazing! posted 12/4/2013 (modified 10/27/2014)

We hired Keith Christopher Entertainment to DJ our reception because they stood out. We went to an event to show off two different DJ companies. They have a philosophy to how they work & it just made more sense to us that just picking dance music that didn't fit the situation & the DJ's didn't seem to have any personality. We knew we wanted to use this DJ when we met with KC a few weeks later. He presented his ideas & we told him what we liked & didn't like. Larry called us a few days before the wedding & went over everything. We explained that we didn't want to spread out the speeches like they tend to do & he said he would just delay it until the first course came out so the guests could eat and listen. We used AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" for our walk in song. We wanted to let the music play for a little & get the guests pumped, because, let's face it, that song is perfect for it! He did such a good job of that on the day of, and we had so much fun walking in to the combination of people clapping & pumping their fists in the air. It was just what we wanted. I loved that they played the perfect combination of music at our wedding and, just as they said they would, played based on the mood of the crowd. We never had an empty dance floor & that is all credited to Larry & his assistant for the night. My parents presented us with Hawaiian wedding lei's as is our family tradition, and he found the song we needed. It was a very emotional presentation & having that song playing in the background made it even more special. My husband used to do some DJing himself so the quality of the music & the diversity was really important to him. They never played the music too loud throughout dinner & it never felt like being in a nightclub where everyone had to shout to hear each other. Music has always been an important part of my husband's & my lives. That's why Keith Christopher Entertainment was the perfect fit for us. We could not have been happier with them. Thank you again Larry!
