We met Red Letter DJ's at a wedding expo last winter. Most DJ's I had looked into seemed very expensive, and even when I picked a large package, it did not include everything we wanted. However, Red Letter had a great all-inclusive package! Email communication was quick and easy the whole time and the online planner was easy to use! We had not even met our DJ Sam, but as soon as we got to the reception we knew he had everything covered for us! He was so professional, yet still fun, energetic, and an all around nice person. At every point during the night, he seemed to be doing anything possible to make sure things were going smoothly and running the way we wanted. He was interactive and kept people dancing the entire night!! I HIGHLY recommend Red Letter DJ's, specifically Sam for all your wedding needs!
We had a wonderful experience with red letter djs as our wedding music provider. To start, their website was so easy to use and everything that we requested that was not already in their data base, they were able to add in our play list. Ben was our dj for the night and he was fantastic to work with. He was on top of our schedule, played everything perfectly on cue and was very personable. Red letter djs made our day that much more special and our guests after getting on the dance floor rarely left it. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks again guys!!!
We hired Red Letter DJs for our wedding at the Roundhouse in Aurora, IL. Jeremy was amazing! He was always quick to respond to my questions and they have a great on-line planning tool if you are interested in requesting or banning specific songs, as well as, songs for introductions and first dances. Talking with Jeremy to plan the specifics of the day gave me confidence that he would make everything run smoothly and people would have a great time. On the big day, Jeremy arrived early to set up, and the up-lights really transformed the room into a more elegant space. We enjoyed his cocktail hour music selections and appreciated his checking in with us to make sure we were happy. He made the introductions, toasts, and first dances run smoothly and got a bunch of people on the dance floor right away and kept them there all night. You can tell that Jeremy really enjoys what he does by the enthusiasm he displayed all night long. He checked in with us throughout the night to make sure we were happy and the answer was always yes. If you are looking for someone that will keep the party going all night long, you have found it with Jeremy and Red Letter DJs. Everyone we talked to after we returned from our honeymoon told us they had a great time at the wedding and that our DJ was AWESOME!
What can I say about Jeremy other than he is AWESOME! Jeremy DJ my wedding and aside from being a great DJ he was a terrific entertainer. We had no set agenda or idea of how events in the wedding were going to take place but Jeremy took care of it all. He was great at letting guest know what was going on and what was coming up next. Not once did I (the bride!!) feel stress or worried. The music was great and everyone loved Jeremy.
The online profile Jeremy offers is brilliant. It allowed us to submit music before the big day and invite friends to submit their own request. I must also add Jeremy dressed to impress. He wore a suit and a tie matching our wedding colors :)
Jeremy, Thank you for making our special day so much more special!
Review was written by my husband and me on the services by Jeremy (owner) at Red Letter DJs. Overall, we were NOT satisfied with the services offered for many reasons:
-Lack of OVERALL COMMUNICATION: although we met in person prior to the wedding (to plan and for DJ to collect $), he did not return phone calls made to him to firm up the reception plans the DAY BEFORE and the WEEKEND BEFORE THE WEDDING, he was only was available by email.
-PLANNING with the DJ: It was difficult to connect with Jeremy a few times but the main issue we had was the day before the wedding and after returning from our honeymoon.
He insisted that we fill out songs through his DJ service portal to choose songs for the reception. We spent a couple of hours total inserting songs that we would like to play (nostalgic songs for all), which in turn he ended up playing his own selection of songs, that the crowd did not respond well to.
- VALUE: we had interviewed quite a few DJs before deciding on him, unfortunately, he promised a lot more in the package we purchased and we were let down by what he delivered (lighting specifically, which was made clear to him throughout the planning process the importance for pictures, but also mixing and choice of music). He promised a customized GOBO light (lighting with our names to be placed on the dance floor or wall). He failed to deliver this on the day of the wedding.
- Lack of EXECUTING WHAT WAS PROMISED: There was a huge miss on the lighting because Jeremy apparently was told by the hotel staff that the ceilings were higher than he expected them to be. Because of this he had issues with setting up the original promised lights. (When asked why he didn’t check himself in person prior to the day of the wedding, he said he never has done that in the past). We received the “oops I found out the ceiling height was not as high as I heard and therefore can’t install the lights I promised” phone call THE DAY OF THE WEDDING while we were AT THE CEREMONY…a little too late at that time to troubleshoot a backup plan unfortunately.
-POOR PLANNING: Jeremy had issues with being able to get his equipment into the hotel the day of the wedding. He said that the hotel would not let him unload his equipment in the hotel loading zone, yet he came ALONE, with no hired help. When asked why he did not contact our point person with the hotel when he had issues, he said he talked to the general manager, who did not help him (it would have made more sense to bring the issue to our point person).
-Accountability: when everything was all said and done, Jeremy blamed the hotel venue for giving him the wrong information. Based on industry experience, the day could have gone a lot smoother had the DJ planned the day more thoroughly. He did not bring anyone to help him set up or breakdown, so this did pose to be problematic when he had issues with getting equipment into/out of the hotel venue.
All in all, he could not have done anything to “ruin” the day (it was a great day beginning to end with and without his services) but we felt his empty promises were UNETHICAL as a business owner and a DJ. We did attempt to contact him several times for a partial refund in which after SEVERAL attempts (he originally wanted to correspond via email only), we finally got him on the phone and he did apologize that the day didn't end up the way he promised. Yet he still refused even a PARTIAL refund in good faith of his business.
We had the pleasure of hiring Jeremy from Red Letter D.J. I say it was a pleasure because he was hands down our most favorite vendor to deal with. Not only did he offer the best pricing for everything he included; but he responded to our e-mails and phone calls promptly. He actually came to our home to review his services and worked around our availability to do so. He answered all of our questions and was not "pushy" in the least.
During our wedding reception Jeremy was fantastic! He had the energy and enthusiasm to beat the band! His introductions were perfect and the mix of music could not have been better. We had guests complimenting us on his work. Our guests danced for 4 hours straight!
We would recommend Red Letter DJ in a heartbeat. ...and if we need a DJ again, this is out "go to" man.

Jeremy was absolutely fantastic from start to finish!! He even went out of his way trying to get our slideshow to work and trying to find the cable we needed. Polite, professional, kept the flow going and super fun! He was conscientious about the type of music we didn't want played and kept it fun! I couldn't say enough good things about him and his service! He connected on a personal level and was super easy to approach. It was honestly like having a friend run the show. Book him, you won't regret it!!!
Red Letter DJ was great to work with. The package we got was a great deal, they were easy to communicate with and their website is so convenient and easy to use it made the whole process a breeze. Ben was our DJ for our wedding and he did an absolutely fantastic job. He was very professional yet fun and did everything he could to make the night go smoothly - and it did! The ceremony music was right on cue and the reception was amazing! He kept the dance floor full all night. The venue said they had never seen so many people dancing there before. Everyone was having such a great time dancing we actually ended up extending our reception! I HIGHLY recommend Ben!
I was beyond pleased with the services that were provided by Red Letter DJ. They were professional from the very beginning, and very pleasant to work with. Everyone had a great time at our reception, and all the credit goes to our DJ Ben. The dance floor was packed the entire night! I highly recommend Red Letter DJ and the services they offer.
Our DJ, Sam, was ready with our personalized music for all those special moments throughout our reception. We all danced the night away and our guests are still telling us what a great time they had out on the dance floor!
Sam from Red Letter DJs did a phenomenal job at our wedding! He was so much fun and was very engaging with our guests of all ages! He was very easy to work with and gave us ideas and advice when we needed it. The planning website they set up for us was very convenient and easy to use. The owner of Red Letter DJs, Jeremy, was in immediate contact with me when I first emailed him and was very helpful along the way as well. I will definitely be recommending Red Letter DJs, Sam especially, to any friends or family of mine needing a DJ in the future! Thanks for helping us make memories that will last a lifetime!
We used Red Letter Djs and it was wonderful. Jeremy was very professional, fun and most of all considerate to all my needs as a stressed out bride! He did a great job at the reception, and we had many compliments on how well he did! I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Red Letter DJ's and Jeremy were the best! My fiance and I were terrible and gave him very little direction on how we wanted things to go and gave him songs literally a few days before and he made everything great! We also opted to have the flip book photo booth at our reception which was literally so much fun and all the guests loved it!
I would definitely recommend Jeremy and Red Letter DJ's!
Jeremy and Red Letter DJ's provided my wife and I with a great wedding reception experience. They charged us $1200 for unlimited playing time, as well as a flip book booth which was a hit with all the guests. If you're looking for an awesome DJ at a great price with a great personality and staff then he's your guy.
We hired red letter Dj's for our wedding it was the best thing we ever did. They are great!!! I would recommend them to anybody having a wedding.
We used Red Letter DJ after meeting with at least half a dozen other DJs and could not be happier! Jeremy was awesome and very accommodating! He has an interactive website which made planning super easy! He kept people on the dance floor until we were kicked out of the reception hall and did a great job emceeing! We highly, highly recommend Red Letter!
Great company to work with and Ben is a great dj. Extremely affordable and great price for the services rendered. Had no problem keeping a room of 150 people entertained and happy. I would use them again in a heart beat and would recommend them to anyone. Thanks again Jeremy and Ben!!
Jeremy was awesome! I couldn't have asked for a better DJ! He was very flexible and did an awesome job accommodating all my needs! I had 10 different couples to announce at the reception and unlike other DJs he let each couple pick out the song they wanted to come out to! He did such a great job switching songs ten times so quickly and announcing them all! He was also very outgoing and super nice! I would recommend him to everyone!
My husband and I are sooo happy that we chose to go with Red Letter DJ's. Our DJ, Dan V. was an absolute delight to work with. He was amazing and had a hard crowd to work with but everyone at the wedding was very pleased with his work. I thank you Jeremy for putting Dan V. to work with us. We were very pleased with his work. I highly recommend him for anybody's wedding...
DJ Jeremy (as we call him) is very talented. We met Jeremy at my brothers wedding and decided to hire him for our own. He is very organized, prepared and full of suggestions! Planning a wedding is stressful enough but I can honestly say I had no worries when it came down to the flow of the ceremony and the reception. He kept the dance floor packed until 1am. Red letter DJs are very reasonably priced. On top of being the most reasonably priced DJs in the area they don't have those annoying silver, gold and platinum deals. You pay for their time and they bring all of there brand new equipment, they don't leave anything out. After seeing Red Letter DJs at my brothers wedding and then my own wedding, my cousin decided to hire him for hers.
I highly recommend Red Letter DJs.
