A-Z Entertainment was amazing! They made sure that everyone from kids to adults were happy and involved at my Son's Party! The dancers engaged everyone from the kids to the grandparents. As a parent, I had a blast. I truly cannot say you would find a better entertainer then Howard and his team. More...

Never disappointed with A-Z Entertainment. I have used them over the past 25 years; my wedding, school functions and just this past weekend my daughters quinceanera. DJ Wreck was amazingly versatile. He went from reggaetone to old school house to pop. Thank you A-Z for always providing me top notch DJ's! You're the best! More...

To say Ricky White, Chello, and crew were amazing does not do it justice. They exceeded our wildest expectations. From their energy to the interactions with all of the guests, both kids and adults, was simply perfection.

A-Z did an amazing job with our wedding. Matt is the one who worked with us and he did an amazing job making sure the right music was played and when to play it. Had the entire wedding dancing will the end of the night, never a dull moment. Also always made sure me and the bride were taken care of and had drinks in hand. If you are looking for the right DJ that will take care of you and not have to worry all night, look no further than A-Z. If we ever have an event that is need of a DJ, we will be calling A-Z without hesitation! More...

I am still floating from the party A-Z hosted for our daughter's bat mitzvah this weekend. I never hesitated in my decision to use A-Z but had no idea how phenomenal our party would be from beginning to end. Ricky, Freestyle, RayRay, and Hannah were simply amazing! They had the kids busy all night and everyone was dancing!! Thanks so much to everyone involved with making my daughter's special day one we'll never forget! More...

When it was time to book entertainment for our 7 year old’s birthday party, we wanted the absolute best. Not only is Matteo an aspiring DJ, he’s spent the last year battling a Leukemia relapse, an incredibly rare fungal infection and severe side effects of a new experimental treatment to rid his little body of cancer. Having spent months in a hospital bed, he found comfort in watching hours of videos of DJs, Marshmello being his favorite. His birthday party was a celebration of his strength, his courage and the love and unwavering support our family, friends and community have shown over the last 3 years since his original diagnosis. Having talked with Howard, I knew they were going to deliver. DJ Dre couldn’t have been sweeter and more accommodating - from explaining his set-up, to getting the party started, to keeping it going and ultimately to fulfilling Matteo’s wish of DJing his own party. Dre crouched behind and held Matteo steady (he’s been relearning to stand and and walk as a result of treatment effects) so he could have his shot and he loved every minute of it, as did everyone at the party. Not only was Dre amazing, but the dancers were also incredible and we shut the place down dancing. I couldn’t recommend these guys more. They made an already special occasion perfect. More...

There are a lot of choices, but when you want the best you ask for A-Z! Ricky was amazing, friendly, engaging and got the kids and adults dancing and having fun the entire time.

HOWARD! HOWARD! HOWARD! After we gave our must play song choices for our wedding, Howard instanty knew our vibe and knew exactly what we wanted to hear. Our dance floor was always packed, and post wedding, our guests kept talking about our DJ. Additionally, my youngest cousin wanted to see Howard's set up, and Howard was happy to show him. In fact, he had the kids dancing and having fun for a good hour during dinner. Thank you for the unforgettable night, Howard! More...

I used A-Z Entertainment for both my boy's Bar Mitzvah (Aug 2016 and May 2019) and they did a fabulous job. They kept the kids involved, dancing and revved up AND also included the adults into the fun. Great music, great dancers. All the kids and adults left the party raving about the great time they had . Would use them again if I had a 3rd child. More...

Corporate Event DJ? It’s easy to recommend Howard Wallach. On our recent collaboration, he was very responsive and accommodating throughout the entire planning process and made everything easy for us. Howard went above and beyond with extra marketing featuring all the different Sponsors and Brands involved with our event. He did a wonderful job as our master of ceremonies and had the entire room buzzing with excitement. Chicago’s Top Dawg delivered so much more than expected. We recommend him highly to any group looking for a GREAT experience! More...

A-Z was at my grandson's bar mitzvah this weekend and were fabulous. I appreciated Ricky calling me and my grandson before the party to get input for what we wanted to achieve. A-Z had everyone on the dance floor a good proportion of the time. The kids were well entertained and participated enthusiastically. Adults had a lot of fun too. On other thing was that the music didn't blast you out of your seat so people could talk with on another while others enjoyed dancing. A great time was had by all. I highly recommend.   A-Z for your next party. More...

Howard is the best DJ in Chicago, hands-down. He brings life, energy and so much entertainment to a room. He doesn't just play music, he feels the atmosphere and adjusts so it's lively all day.

I have filmed hundreds of events and worked with every DJ around. Howard is called Top Dawg for a reason. He is not only filled with ridiculous energy and fun but knows how to work the party from the vendor side as well. The client may not notice but Howard makes the photographers photos better and the videographers video better by communicating with the other vendors and having the crowd play to the cameras when appropriate. The consummate pro. More...

I am the bride of the wedding and we did not hire A-Z as our entertainment. There must be a misunderstanding or miscommunication. I have no idea who Timothy Steinfeild is. Our entertainer was Dj Riel and he actually did a fantastic job! We received a lot of great feedback for his peformance the day of our wedding. My husband and I were not upset with the Dj at all. Me and Riel had communicated about them eating and it was my lack of communication to the hall coordinator. It was a little chaotic because things needed to be pushed back. We were really content with the service of the hall and our entertainer. More...

Howard and his crew are the best! I work for a not-for-profit so our budget was very limited and Howard help me devise an audio/visual plan that was within my budget and met all of our A/V needs.

Howard Wallach has been one of the premier names in entertainment for many years. When Art Encounter asked him to help us with our 40th anniversary gala with a limited budget he could not do enough. He rented two of his flat screen monitors at a great price and through in the sandbags that he had because he's a great guy. That epitomizes the type of customer service you will receive working with A-Z Entertainment. More...

Howard was the obvious choice for our August wedding! He met with my maid of honor and I at first, and he really impressed us. He listened to what I liked, what I was thinking for the wedding, and I feel he truly gave me his honest opinions to help make our day special. He made sure everything was running smoothly throughout the night and kept everyone on the dance floor ALL NIGHT! Howard is extremely flexible and was able to work with extra elements we wanted to incorporate. For instance, we wanted to invite my husband's uncle to play some live Greek music for a portion of the night, and Howard was incredibly accommodating and helped get them setup to play the handful of songs that we wanted. From beginning to end, Howard and A-Z Entertainment were tremendously fun and easy to work with. But best of all, Howard was always checking in with my husband and I to see how we were doing and to remind us to have fun! I highly recommend Howard and A-Z for your future wedding! More...

Our experience with A-Z Entertainment was INCREDIBLE! The DJ, Howard, played all the types of music we preferred, appropriate kids' games, easy to work with, and FUN! All of the kids at my son's Bar Mitzvah told us they thought the DJ and his troupe were "so cool!" The troupe consisted of 3 young adults that got the kids (and even some adults) up and dancing and playing games. These young adults were very wholesome looking and were age appropriate for kids. The reason I mention that is because I've been to some kids' events and the troupes at those wore very little clothing and danced inappropriately! The A-Z Entertainment DJ and troupe were VERY age appropriate and fun for all age groups! Our planning experience with a Howard was also wonderful. He listened to and implemented our concerns, helped us with ideas for food vendors, planning suggestions, seating and timeline arrangements, and had a list of the best places to get the best deals on give-always! We DEFINITELY would hire A-Z Entertainment again! More...

All through the night people were asking me where I found Howard and A-Z entertainment ..the energy he brought to my wedding just cannot be put into words. . he was the perfect EMCEE for our actual wedding ceremony and came up with some of the most creative and spontaneous and fun ideas for our reception ..he has an amazing talent for reading the audience and adjusting the songs accordingly and I have been getting text messages from my friends all day saying how much fun they had at our wedding. I owe so much of that to Howard and his associate at A-Z Entertainment.Prior to my wedding day Howard was very helpful and took so much time with me to walk me through how I envisioned the day....he truly cared what we wanted and was very respectable of our budget..and..he also has a wonderful portal where I could fill in my information and then we talked about it and Howard did not miss a thing.. I am so happy.I never had to worry about follow up or follow through by Howard or his staff.People asked where I found A-Z entertainment and I am very fortunate that Howard has provided his services for Weddings and Mitzvahs of friends of mine over the years and he has an excellent reputation in the industry..you will not be disappointed!

As a professional videographer I have had the opportunity to work with Howard from A-Z many many times. Whether it's a private house party or a huge wedding or Mitzvah Howard never disappoints. He's always on. Great personality, high energy and always gives the customer more than they paid for. I've worked with them all and Howard's the best! More...

A-Z does a great job. Have done the trivia game show twice for both of my kids' bar/bat mitzvah parties and their staff is great! Very engaging and kids were into it (as well as some adults). More...

Ricky was amazing for our wedding! He kept everyone on the dance floor all night long! Even the light show had all of our guest in awe. Ricky even got on the dance floor with our dance to show them a dance! VERY impressed with him and would recommend A to Z to anyone! We will use this company again in the future for other family events! More...

Flew TOP DAWG out to NYC for our wedding party, and he spun up a Windy City storm! Howie is the best DJ/entertainer in the biz, our guests gushing with compliments about his mix, and enthralled by his showmanship and personality. Whether you're doing a big party or small, formal or informal, hire the dawg with confidence, because he'll make an awesome celebration absolutely spectacular! #woofwoof More...

I got married 6 months ago and was lucky to have Howard as my DJ!  We had so much fun at our wedding, and our guests are still talking about what a great job Howard did.  Our dance floor was packed from the first dance of the evening all the way through to the end.Howard was meticulous and insisted on meeting with us either in person or over the phone 2-3 times before our wedding to discuss song selections, atmosphere, and the bridal party. He made some great suggestions too. My husband was even able to coordinate a surprise for me with him, which went off perfectly.  He also threw in a couple of no-charge extras to make our day super special.Howard is a master at interacting with people and making sure everyone is having a great time!

You and your team had everyone going from the time we walked in to the time we all left. I had a lot of friends ask me for your name and number.Thank you again for making Cody's Bar Mitvzah a great time. More...

We had been to events where A-Z DJ'd and thought they were great. I not only hired them for my wedding but for my company's holiday party. They were accommodating, attentive and affordable. I would highly recommend them! More...

Howard Wallach and his crew were outstanding.  They made our wedding a memorable evening; one that we will never forget.  Howard is s master mc, and along with the great music selection, and his choreography, made the wedding one that guests will be talking about for years .  He set the bar extremely high, and worked well with all the vendors, guests and our event planner.  A-Z is simply off the charts........

Anthony was our wedding DJ and he did a wonderful job! He was really flexible and easy to get ahold of. We don't listen to a lot of popular music and he did a great job of putting together a playlist that got people dancing. We couldn't have been happier!

A to Z did my daughter's Bat Mitzvah in October and did a wonderful job. We are so happy we chose them. They were helpful from beginning to end. We already booked them for our other daughter's Bat Mitzvah. More...

Had A-Z for my granddaughter's Bat Mitzvah in March. They were terrific. Before the bat mitzvah, during our planning meeting, Howard was great listening and respecting our needs. Also, the advice he gave us then and the planning was invaluable. My granddaughter was thrilled with her party and that's really counts. More...

We chose A-Z for my daughter's bat mitzvah and we are so glad we did!!  Up front, Howard's enthusiasm is contagious.  He is so passionate about what he does and with all of the parties they do, we could have certainly been "just another party. "  On the contrary, Howard went out of his way to make sure that we could get the type of setup and the emcee we wanted and to help ensure that they could fit within our budget.  Both Howard and our emcee, Suave, offered to meet with us/talk to us before the party to make sure that they knew exactly how we wanted it to go and to offer up some of their ideas based on their experiences.  What also blew me away was that when I walked into the party, the DJ, emcee, and every single dancer (5 total) came up to me and personally introduced themselves, made sure they knew our family, and asked if there was anything they could do to help make the party exactly what we wanted it to be - wow!  The party itself was fantastic and A-Z was a huge part of that - from the emcee/DJ to the dancers, they kept the party going and kept everyone dancing all night.  Thank you A-Z for helping us throw an incredible party!

Ricky was the BEST!Everyone at A-Z was just amazing. We had our son's Bar Mitzvah celebration just a couple weeks ago, and everything was perfect. Ricky was fun, entertaining, and engaging. Our DJ and all of the dancers helped to make the party memorable and awesome for everyone of our family and friends. The planning and preparation was great, and we were able to get everything we wanted out of the experience. Even when we threw some curve balls, the whole A-Z crew responded perfectly and made a great experience, even better.Thank you Ricky, thank you A-Z! More...

Wow!  A-Z and Ricky are the best there is.  There are many DJ's and entertainers out there, but A-Z is so far beyond everyone else, they are in a category of their own.  We had our daughter's bat mitzvah at Whirlyball and I was concerned that with all the other activities, people wouldn't be dancing as much.  The dance floor was packed the entire time.  Ricky got everyone from the kids to parents to grandparents out there, along with all their friends.  5 stars for them is not even enough.

I am honestly shocked that this company has not gotten more/better reviews.  My fiance and I hired this company for our wedding, and we had a phenomenal experience.  Firstly, we met with the owner and our DJ months before our wedding, so we could get comfort with the key players in this transaction. The owner honored a misquoted price for us without even being asked.  And the DJ was extremely personable and made himself continually accessible to answer any questions for us.  Not only did the DJ provide a detailed timeline for us when we met prior to the wedding (which happens to be more than even our wedding planner did for us), but he also adhered to a "Do Play/Do Not Play" list during our wedding reception.  Our DJ was consistently punctual, friendly, and professional, not to mention extremely relatable as he had just gotten married himself.  I can honestly say that going into my wedding, I had absolutely no concerns, because I knew I was in great hands.  Sure enough, A-Z exceeded our expectations.  I wouldn't change a thing about my experience and will do everything I can to ensure this company gets as many good referrals as possible.

We used A - Z Entertainment for our son's bar mitzvah party a couple months ago and people are still talking about the party! Howard and the A - Z team made the party what it was. I knew the kids would have fun, but worried the adults (including elderly grandmothers and great grandmas) would feel the music was too loud and modern. But they were the ones raving about the party for weeks afterward! I'd say most of the people at the party weren't Jewish and had never attended a bar mitzvah party before ours. Thanks to A - Z, they came away with a great experience and had a better understanding of another culture. The horah was a huge hit and A - Z included my other kids when the chairs went up. I felt like they read the crowd really well and played music according to what the kids wanted. After one slow song, we never head another. That was great because only the married couples would slow dance, but the party was really for the kids, so A - Z tailored it for them. I have to say if you're going to spend money on anything for a party where you want an interactive DJ, spend it on the DJ, not the programs, decor, venue, or even bar. People will remember the DJ and the great time they had dancing. They're not going to remember that you didn't serve their favorite IPO. More...

We hired A - Z for our wedding after we saw them listed on the Drake Hotel's "preferred vendor" list.  Within a few hours after initially contacting them Howard Wallach (owner) contacted us and we had a meeting that week.  From the moment we met him we knew he was exactly what we were looking for.  Being huge music fans my wife and I had a few song suggestions  Howard played them all but also told us to trust him and let him do his magic.  We are so happy we did, Howard honored our requests in dinner hour and there wasn't a single person sitting down once the dancing started at our reception.  He knew exactly when to slow things down, exactly when to get it back going and used the microphone perfectly when an announcement was necessary.Howard also went out of his way to learn about my wife and I, he personalized the announcements in regards to our friends, family, Alma maters and more.  The morning after the wedding we hosted a brunch and Howard's DJing was the buzz of the room, everyone complimented us on our choice and said that he was the best DJ they've ever heard at a wedding.  We couldn't agree more, now we just want to find an event where we can hire him again.If you choose A-Z you will not be disappointed, they are the best in the business.  Nice, professional and most importantly AMAZING at their jobs!

We also hired A to Z for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah. They were the best decision we made.  They absolutely MADE the party. Nook, our emcee, was BEYOND AMAZING, a true expert in keeping things fun and flowing well.  Adults and kids alike were having a blast.  Participation on the dance floor was very high. People were even dancing whom I never saw dancing at any prior parties! Howard, the owner, is very nice and helpful.  Every time I called, I was treated with respect and kindness - I received excellent customer service. We will definitely use A to Z again for our son's bar mitzvah. Using a stellar company like A to Z is worth it because that MAKES THE PARTY.  Nothing worse than spending money on a party and having it not be fun.  I did not have to worry about that with A to Z.  Thank you for making our party so much fun - the memories will last a lifetime.
