Spin N Play DJs go above and beyond to make your day what you'd hoped. They were some of the kindest people I had the pleasure of working with during wedding planning. I loved how they played any music I asked for and how organized they were. I've also been to a few other... Read More weddings with them that were great.

Where do I begin....from our first meeting with Josh my fiancé and I felt so comfortable with his business. He is detail oriented, gives honest opinions and suggestions, and is very prompt in responding to emails throughout the entire process (especially the last month of... Read More constant fine details/questions). We got married at Acquaviva Winery in Maple Park, IL and Spin N Play DJs were who we turned to for our outdoor ceremony as well as our music/MC-ing / and our up lighting (that is totally recommended, I had no idea how much of a difference this makes)for our reception. Josh really put a bride at ease by taking over and making sure our bridal party/parents/etc. were in line and ready to go for introductions, to the best timing ever for each speech/first dance/grace/ETC. He paid attention to what type of music we appreciated and our requests and also made sure our "no no" list was taken into consideration. Our dance floor was crowded all night long. This company did a MAGNIFICENT job for all that they did for us. An amazing business to work with, in which I highly recommend (and honestly I am usually not one who writes reviews, but they deserve one)!

This was the absolute BEST wedding DJ. They made sure the reception was everything we wanted and they totally set the mood at different times of the night. My husband and I wanted a celebration and we love to dance-Josh and Lisa understood that and played perfect music. At one... Read More point Josh was teaching the family how to wobble! After the wedding I was told multiple times how awesome our DJ was. On top of doing a great job at orchestrating the reception, Josh and Lisa are incredibly kind people. They traveled from Illinois to Iowa to do our wedding. They asked questions, they listened, and they were loved by all of my family. I HIGHLY reccomend them for your wedding, you will not regret it!

If I could give Spin N Play 10 stars I would! Everyone on their team went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our big day. From making payments, to planning what songs we wanted, and then making everything come together perfectly on our day (up-lights,... Read More spot lights, DJ, Live Trio) - I seriously give the entire team an A++!!! Thank you Josh and entire team for being so wonderful and helpful. It was nice having the team lead the way that evening so I didn't feel like I needed to know what was happening when because it just flowed so smoothly!! I hope we can do business again in the future! :)

Josh did an absolutely amazing job DJing our wedding!!! He took care of all the details—I literally just relaxed and didn’t have to worry about anything, he kept the timeline running seamlessly. Not to mention he threw a rockin’ party that was also family friendly like I... Read More requested!! Everyone had a blast, he even had my 80 year old grandpa with his walker on the dance floor. Josh just has an amazing personality—his energy and friendliness made the whole night. We also had Paul do our video, which turned out AMAZING, and the video guest book!! That was a huge hit with our guests, we had everything from sweet sentimental messages to group song and dance routines on our video. It was such a special keepsake and I feel much more interactive than a photo booth. I just can’t say enough positive about Spin N Play and all the work they did for our day. It was definitely the perfect day I’ve always dreamed about!!

Josh DJed at my wedding at the Armour House, and was fantastic. The entire group of wedding guests danced the entire time which I attribute to his music choices. He didn't play anything I asked him not to, and whenever I gave him requests he would play it right away. He was...

Spin N Play DJs helped to make our wedding day everything I thought it would be. DJs have a HUGE responsibility during a reception (and in my case, the ceremony as well) to engage the guests and to keep everything flowing. Josh did just that. I had a few (extremely) last... Read More minute changes to introductions line-up and speeches and he was able to accommodate with a smile. I received a ton of compliments from my friends and family throughout the evening and the days and weeks after the wedding. If I had it to do over, I would choose Spin N Play every time.
