Cyndi was truly an amazing part of our wedding! She played everything that was requested by my husband and I, as well as guest requests during the reception. Cyndi is also very responsive when responding to emails which was a load off my mind! I would highly recommend Cyndi and Angels with an Edge d.j company :)

Thanks again Cyndi for everything!

Cyndi provided DJ services for my 50th birthday party. From her detailed website, her long list of available music, and any information you want her to know about your event, her website and services provide everything you need. She's on top of the details! She and her partner came on time, and all my guest said "Your DJ NAILED the music!" We had a great time and I highly recommend Cyndi for your next party!! More...

Cyndi and her team were a breeze to work with. I hired Angels With and Edge for a wedding pre-party (my Indian-fusion wedding was basically five straight nights of partying). I requested a retro vibe, which they pulled together perfectly, and when folks wanted to get a little groovier and contemporary as the night progressed, they were able to keep up the pace perfectly. Cyndi and her partner were super friendly and attentive. They even played very specific requests for my partner's family, who really wanted Punjabi Indian Bhangra music! I was so surprised and impressed, and we talked at the end of the night that they had a fun time learning about a new style of music and dance. Angels with an Edge was super affordable, and honestly blew me away with what we got for the money. Thanks so much Cyndi! I will be recommending you to friends and family for future parties More...

Cyndi was an amazing DJ. She catered to my every need, even accomodating last minute changes. All my guest said it was the best dance party they've ever been too and the mix of Nigerian, Italian and American guests all got a chance to break it down on the dance floor. I would highly recommend her.

Angels with an Edge is an inexpensive DJ option if this isn't something that's a top priority for your wedding. We had a brunch wedding with less than two hours of open dance floor, so this wasn't necessarily something we wanted to prioritize. For what we paid, they were the perfect option for us. The reason for three stars is because there were a couple errors at our wedding:-in the middle of the ceremony (in which we were relying on our DJ's technology), the microphone cut out-when announcing us as a couple, after going over pronunciation multiple times, he still said our last name incorrectly    -my father passed away a few years back, and it was made very clear at our planning meeting leading up to the wedding as well as at the wedding itself (by both me and my wedding coordinator!) that it would be a MOTHER daughter dance, yet our DJ announced it as father daughter. This mistake had my mom in tears and definitely made this already sad situation even worse -our "must play" list, which we agonized over, was not played in its entirety, yet songs off our "maybe" list were playedAgain, little errors here and there really dampened my overall satisfaction. If a DJ is your top priority, I wouldn't necessarily suggest you use Angels with an Edge. More...

Angels with an Edge DJed our backyard wedding this past weekend. They did a great job! They were on time, took music requests, had a play list we emailed them and were patient in working with us. Everyone at the wedding danced and enjoyed their evening! Thank you for making our night even more special! More...

I worked with Cyndi from Angels With An Edge for my July 2018 wedding. She was professional, attentive and helpful throughout the entire planning process. I was picky about my wedding music, and appreciated that Cyndi gives couples plenty of leeway in picking songs that must be played (and must not be played). Cyndi even went out of her way to secure additional audio equipment for the musicians that played during our ceremony. Her services were also incredibly affordable, especially compared to other Chicago-area DJs. Thanks so much for keeping our wedding-day dance floor joyous and jumpin, Cyndi! More...

We couldn't be more pleased with Cyndi and Angels with an Edge! Cyndi was very communicative, starting months before the wedding, and reassuring and comforting when I needed talked down from my music-related nightmares! She got people on the dance floor, was very communicative with announcements, and wasn't obnoxious with forcing people onto the dance floor. Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend Cyndi, and can't thank her enough for making our wedding perfect! More...

Cyndi and her team did a marvelous job throughout the planning stages and right into our wedding day. Cyndi was always on top of her email and also made sure to check in with us periodically. She was also very detailed oriented and caught a couple times when I accidentally double booked songs for certain events. At the reception, she kept the party going with all the right music. She even went out of her way to find the karaoke track I requested to serenade my groom. We can't say enough about how wonderful it was to work with her.Thank you Cyndi! More...

Cyndi and Mike did a fantastic job on our wedding day! The song selection was great! We didn't have many songs that we specifically requested, so Cyndi just judged the dance floor and picked great music! She even worked with us to play music during our ceremony (there was a fee involved for using equipment meant for outdoors, but it was very reasonable!). Anytime that I needed to email Cyndi with questions, she was very quick to respond. There were a few occurrences of me asking many in a row, and she always remained patient with me. She also did a great job with announcements during the reception. It was a little hard to hear her a couple times, but it didn't greatly affect the night. Mike also did a great job of keeping things coordinated and helped the speech givers with mics and such. Overall, we had a fantastic experience with Cyndi and Mike for a fantastic price! I'd definitely recommend Angels With An Edge Entertainment if you'd like to have a fun night with some fun and laid back people :) More...

Communication with the owner was good, but overall the service on our day was not.Though I had sent a itinerary of the day a week in advance there were some things missing from announcements and instead of being 100% focused on enjoying the moment I had to play a bit of chasing to make sure things were done (and a few were done but not at all within the time-frames given. ) Disappointing. Issues- Missing announcements, poor follow up on the day, incorrect location at venue (could possibly been the venue's fault) and music volume needed to be corrected.  Printing and keeping the doc I created, and checking the full detail once he was on site would have helped correct a lot of problems.. I directly informed the owner Cyndi about our negative experience and though I received an email back immediately saying she would check into this, no other follow up or efforts were received.

Cyndi is absolutely great! She was incredibly attentive and helpful leading up to the wedding and answered our many questions. She also has the option of making your own playlist which we took advantage of. However, while we had a playlist she also added things in that we think really got the crowd dancing! She really took all of our requests and the wya we wanted our day to be to heart. Honestly what you get for Cyndi's prices is unbelievable in the wedding market! She helped make our day perfect and we can't recommend her enough! More...

The value of what we received was great. The online planning tool to create a timeline was very easy to use. We appreciated having a meeting with Cyndi prior to the wedding. The reception itself overall was pretty good. Some of the announcement could have used a bit more energy but people did dance and that's what we wanted More...

Excellent price for a DJ in the Chicagoland area, I couldn't believe it. It was 1/2 the cost of any other company I looked for. I was on a tight budget so was so happy to find AWAE. Also got some basic lighting with that so that was a happy surprise. My only complaint was that I didn't get much contact prior to my event, but I also did not have the DJ that everyone raves about in reviews (the owner, Cyndi). I did email with her a few times and she was quick to respond when I had not yet heard from my DJ a couple weeks before the wedding. I didn't have a big detailed wedding so It wasn't that big of a deal that I didn't get a meet beforehand. Of course no day goes without a few hiccups, one was that our first dance song was played again later in the night. Other than that (which is not at all big deals) everything was great. David was our DJ and was very nice, not pushy. The online tool was nice for requests, do not plays etc. Would definitely recommend their services. More...

We used DJ Cyndi for our wedding this year. I really needed a DJ who was affordable, dependable, and would follow my wish list (a little picky about songs) and Angels with an Edge was perfect for this. Cyndi is an excellent communicator. She was really great about checking in the months leading up to the wedding, and we had a call the week before to review the whole evening. It went well, and my playlists were followed. I gave some instructions about half way through the evening to change up the vibe, and they were immediately followed as well. My guests were dancing all night. I will say that I did have almost all my music chosen - so not sure how they would do without direction, but if you know what you want and need someone who will pull it off, they are definitely the DJs to go with.

I would highly recommend Angels With An Edge Entertainment to anyone who is looking for responsive, professional, and affordable DJ services. I was nervous hiring Cyndi having never met her, nor knowing anyone who has used her, since I think music can really make or break a wedding reception. From the get go Cyndi was really responsive - constantly checking in with me in the months leading up to the wedding. I had a call with her a week before to review timelines and wants, and she had clearly read all my documents, and was really on top of the event already. The online tool is perhaps not the most technical/up to date, but it works and is a great way to organize the music you want to hear. I was very specific in my music selections for dinner, cocktails, and dancing, and as far as I could tell it was all played at the appropriate times. I really wanted a low key DJ, and Cyndi took this into account. All announcements I asked for were properly full of pep and excitement, but were not cheesy. And, as the night went on I asked for a couple of things to happen, and they all were taken care of promptly (certain songs to be played, etc). Highly recommend! More...

Dude had his standard play list, which happened to be everything from our 'do not play list' and nothing from our 'must play list'.  Fan of Journey? Fan of the Chicken Dance? All those wedding classics you'd might have wanted to avoid?  It's cool brah!  This dude will play it no matter how much time previously requested!Members of the wedding party can't stop his thunder either.  When presented with the knowledge that he might have ignored the brides wishes by the maid of honor she was sent away.  Ask for the standard and see how you like it first.  If you have different ideas too bad, son!

The other reviews pretty much say it all, but I think the more folks speaking up about what a great job Cyndi does, the better.  Super professional, kept in contact with us throughout the whole process, did exactly what we asked and ran the wedding without taking over the wedding.  For the music used to introduce the wedding party, we asked that she introduce us at a very specific part of the song and she couldn't have nailed the timing better.  I was really impressed.  Highly, highly recommended.

Cyndi was nothing short of exceptional. She was professional, quick-to-respond, and her service packages were BEYOND reasonably priced. She was easy to work with from the first e-mail and was more than willing to meet in person when I felt it was needed. Every month, she'd send check-in emails to see if I had questions or concerns. If I had any questions, she answered them quickly and efficiently. The event came and went and Cyndi and her assistant just made everything in concerns to music, announcements, etc. completely smooth, which allowed us and our guests to be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the day. Thanks, Cyndi and Daniele. The next time we need a DJ, you're our lady! More...

We could not be happier with our decision to hire Angels with an Edge! Cyndi was with us every step of the way -- she came out to the suburbs for a face-to-face meeting with my fiance and I, sent us monthly check-in e-mails, and quickly responded to all of our e-mails and questions. At the wedding, her and her partner DJ were super responsive to scheduling changes and song requests from both us and our guests. From the ceremony to cocktail hour to dancing, the music turned out just how we wanted. A ton of guests complimented our music and our DJs. On top of everything, the price was super reasonable! I would recommend Cyndi and Angels with an Edge to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding or another event. More...

Angels With An Edge Entertainment provided music for my wedding. I really liked Cyndi (owner) because she wasn't overly pushy like several of the other DJs I talked with, I didn't feel like I had to decide immediately with her, I had time to research and ask questions. Cyndi was very helpful when picking songs and making sure the timeline worked out well and flowed correctly. It was awesome when Cyndi helped some guest with the Macarena dance, everyone enjoyed dancing. I received compliments from guest about the music played. More...

DJ Cyndi is very professional and prompt. Correspondence via e-mail and phone were very good and fast. Cyndi often updated me via e-mail to see if I had any questions or concerns and to remind me of important things. She showed up early for my wedding day and did a marvelous job the entire wedding. Classy and fun, she didn't badger our guests or act whacky like a lot of wedding DJs I've encountered at other people's weddings. The sound system sounded good and wasn't overly loud.I really liked that we were linked to the DJ software program you use online to pick out your own music as well as music you do NOT want played. You can also put the event's timeline and planning on there, and list all of the people's names involved in the wedding party. This made life much simpler.Cyndi's service is excellent and her prices are extremely reasonable. It's difficult to find affordable, dependable services for weddings. Cyndi gave us high quality service without breaking our bank account. She also played every single one of my planned songs at the right time. She also played her own music choices that blended well with the rest of the music. She really understood the vibe we were going for.My guests raved about the music and the DJ. I saw people dancing that I never thought I would ever see dancing in my life. I think this is an indicator of a good wedding reception! More...

We used Angels with an Edge this weekend for our annual fundraiser. People raved about the music--which is a big deal because in years past there has been a lot of complaining. And people danced way more than usual. This is our 4th time doing this event and everyone I spoke to said it was the best one to date. The DJ, Cyndi, had a lot to do with that. One of the perks with this company is that once you book your date, they give you access to their massive music database. You can pick your top 100 "must play" songs (as well as a whole bunch of "For the love of all that is holy, DON'T PLAY THIS SONG!, which is equally important--Michael Bolton, YMCA and the Chicken Dance all made their way onto this list). You can also request custom tunes--I plugged in some really obscure music into the list and like magic, Cyndi played it. Lastly, Cyndi did a really good job of reading the room. People really danced, which is what I was really hoping for. Truly a great value and a great service. More...

Q&A

Not everyone's idea of "dancing music" is the same. We make sure to play a little something for everyone.

Our entertainment philosophy is to MC when appropriate - we do not believe in using the microphone to badger your family & guests onto the dance floor. Quite often, family & friends use wedding receptions to "catch up" with one another. We always tell our clients, "Watch the door, not the floor".

The opportunity to learn about different songs & genres of music that we have never played before.
We also enjoy all of the different people that DJ has allowed us to meet.

My love of music. DJing gives me the chance to share that with others.

We believe that our clients should have TOTAL input as to the music they want played for their event. From the minute your family & friends walk in, they should hear the music & know that it is your event. You know the music some of your guests will enjoy & we know the rest. Our job is timing & reading the crowd.
