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...

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 .

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...
