There is only one word to describe my expirience with Amy and Yazz Jazz Entertainment and that is AMAZING.... From the moment I met Amy, I instantly knew that she would be part of our big day. For 16 months we were in communication. She made sure that she knew every detail of... Read More how I wanted the music to be and when it was time to shine, she not only met but exceeded every expectation that i have had! She is beyond talented and her team of professional musicians kept everyone on the dance floor the ENTIRE evening, which was one of my biggest requests! People are still raving about Amy and her band! My only recommendation is that you book them right away because talent like that books up fast! Thank you Amy from the bottom of my heart!

We recently celebrated our wedding night with Yazz Jazz! Amy (owner) and David (DJ) hands down stood out to us as the most helpful, friendly, and professional vendor we dealt with through our wedding planning process. Their communication skills went above and beyond! I will... Read More never forget the first time I reached out to Amy, she responded to my questions and arranged our meeting within 5 minutes of my message. They each met us separately in person prior to our wedding to make sure every detail was taken care of. David helped instruct me on making the perfect father daughter video for our dance, which would not have been possible without his weekly messages, instruction and set-up. Not to mention our wedding timeline was crafted so nicely for us and our guests - who enjoyed every moment. Both Amy and David went far beyond their job descriptions to make sure our night was everything we wanted and more. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a band or DJ for their special night! Thank you Yazz Jazz!

Amy and her team at Yazz Jazz were one of the best decisions we made when it came to our Camp Wandawega Wedding. Amy its not only incredibly talented at singing, but also a great communicator and leader of a highly reliable team. They accommodated my quirky outdoor venue and... Read More rocked the night away with exactly the songs we wanted. They set up sound for the ceremony, DJ for dinner and the band for dancing. Our wedding was not the easiest place to do sound for an event but they nailed it! These guys are fantastic, oh, and they play incredible music. All our guests raved about how great the band and dance party were! Thank you!!

I met Amy of Yazz Jazz Entertainment in January of 2016 and instantly fell in love with her personality and professionalism. Planning my May 2017 wedding with Amy was one of the most joyous and honestly, the most pleasant parts of the whole thing. It was like planning a wedding... Read More with a best friend who had been through it before. She was there every step and misstep with patience and understanding. We met a few times to go over details and Amy was always at the ready with suggestions for bridal salons, makeup artists and more. I trusted Amy to select a DJ that would mesh well with our tastes and personalities, and she did NOT disappoint. JC was 5 stars and more. On the day of our wedding, I would have been lost without her. She even helped me pull off a surprise for my husband. If you’re in need of affordable, top quality DJ services, Amy, JC, and Yazz Jazz Entertainment has you covered.

Amy and the Yazz Jazz crew met, then exceeded our expectations. Amy met us in person twice before the wedding and had many phone conversations with us throughout our planning phases. The 11-piece band was comprised of some of the top players and singers in Chicagoland. They... Read More met our every song request and even learned a few that the band usually doesn't perform.

She also joined us at our Venue to walk... Read More through the whole night, in detail, from where the three piece group would sit, times when we and bridal party would walk in and so on. And Yazz Jazz band was bringing everyone out onto the dance floor. Their energy was heightening the night which you could see on the faces of our guests. Then the DJ came in and blasted our guests with more music to keep them on the dance floor. He and his team did such a great job of mixing up the music from our two different cultures.

She was an excellent communicator, very flexible, and really wanted the best for me and my husband on our wedding day.... Read More Yazz Jazz ended up providing us ceremony music, cocktail music, and even a blended approach for the reception that was half band and half DJ. JC was our DJ and he killed it!

Yazz Jazz Entertainment was unimaginably magnificent. My husband and I love live music and we decided we wanted live music at our wedding and reception. We chose Yazz Jazz because my husband (who works in the hospitality industry) had heard them perform at a previous wedding and... Read More said thought they were pretty good. I trusted him and I am so glad I did! From the very beginning, Amy and her team were professional and exceptional! Their experience with weddings and receptions truly shows and they work hard to make the planning process very easy and stress-free. We chose the 7 piece band and DJ package. They provided the music and microphones for the wedding, live music for the cocktail hour, and all of the music for the reception. The band went out of their way to learn several songs and modified some songs that we had requested. I can't say enough about how professional they were, but I can never explain in words their talent. The entertainment they provided was priceless. The quality of their music, sound, and shear breadth of their repertoire was unbelievable. Our guests danced and celebrated the night like we had never expected. We cannot not possibly have had a better wedding and Yazz Jazz truly made it happen.

My experience with Yazz Jazz was impeccable. Amy and her team truly made a horrible wedding nightmare turn into a beautiful memory. At the time I was introduced to Amy, my now husband and I were scammed of our money from a wedding venue ( don't worry, it no longer exists!) . We...

They were reasonable and completely worth the investment. Thank you Yazz Jazz for making my dreams come true!

Yazz Jazz was by far the best decision that we made when it came to selecting our wedding vendors! Amy was very professional and helpful from day one. She was super flexible and allowed us to wait on finalizing our exact package until closer to the date while still holding our... Read More date. She was great with helping us pick the perfect DJ for our wedding as well. She was absolutely correct that Dave was a great fit for us! Dave was amazing to work with as well. He was great about discussing what we were looking for and completely accommodating it. We made a playlist of suggested songs, but ended up telling him that we trusted his judgement. He did an incredible job of reading the crowd and playing each song at the perfect moment. Our guests were raving about the music and he had the dance floor packed the entire night. He even recorded our sparkler exit for us since our videographers had already left for the night! We had some major issues with our venue right before the wedding due to staff turnover. My fiance and I were very nervous about how the day would turn out since the venue was such a mess. Amy and Dave came to one of our meetings at the venue and completely took care of everything! They took charge and turned our wedding into the event that we hoped it would be! I truly believe that our wedding would not have been the event that we were looking to have without Yazz Jazz and I cannot thank them enough for their help. If you are considering using Yazz Jazz, look no further. It was the best decision that we made for our wedding and I would recommend them to anyone!

First, Amy is amazing! She really made me feel comfortable because I was an out of state bride. She was very flexible to accommodate my schedule whenever I was in town. Amy was honest and reliable. When I began my search for a wedding band I learned (from reading many reviews)... Read More that just because you see a band at their showcase, doesn't always mean they will ALL be performing at your wedding. Amy promised me at our first meeting (performance), "What you see is what you get!" and she was right. The band was great! My guest loved the music and it was music we wanted to hear and a little extra. We got nothing but compliments from our guest. Yazz Jazz was worth every penny and worth the many debates with my husband. He is so happy that we went with a band and not a DJ. Amy was so great with going over details and even on the day of my wedding. If you want to stand out from other weddings, you have to go with YAZZ JAZZ!
