Lori was so personable and a consummate professional from moment one! I had not hired a DJ before, and Lori gave me all the information I needed without my having to ask. It was not only efficient but a great pleasure to work with Lori. She stayed in contact throughout the process to make our event fun and her services seamless. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again for an event and would recommend her services to anyone looking for a friendly and professional DJ who is excellent at "reading the room" and keeping the positive vibes going for hours! Thank you, Lori! You are awesome! More...

Our event wouldn't have been the same without Lori and her assistant Louie! She was so thorough from the very beginning that I was immediately sold after we first connected. She even went above and beyond with the decor setup around the DJ booth for our Halloween themed surprise party. Which just elevevated our party even more! Lori and Louie also both dressed up in theme and agreed to play along as a "bouncer" to surprise the guest of honor. Absolutely the best sports! Now, for the music. Even with an unfortunate mishap with the folder that held all our music, Lori still managed to keep the party alive and weave in all our song requests with ease. Everyone truly had a great time! Even the attendees at an event downstairs told us they could hear all our music and said our DJ was amazing! Will definitely be reaching out to Lori for all my events moving forward. More...

We highly recommend DJ Lori. She is an absolute pro and her experience showed and proved to be very valuable in making our wedding so special. The dance floor was packed the whole night. She read the room very well and understood and implemented our vision for the event. We loved working with her and she is clear and reliable in her communication. We received so many compliments about the dancing at our event and heard from multiple people that it was the best dancing at any wedding they've ever been to. We agree! More...

Our organization had a great experience working with DJ Lori. We booked DJ Lori for a fundraiser for a group of 50 people. Lori provided all of the information for the payment schedule, lighting, song selection, and her day-of-event schedule upfront. DJ Lori was readily available by email as our event approached, and we determined an agenda for the event. DJ Lori was seamless in her use of songs to keep the event momentum up and the changing of the volume from music to microphones for our fundraiser program. I would highly recommend booking DJ Lori for your next event. More...

So glad we chose DJ Lori as our DJ for our community Trunk or Treat event! She provided the best Halloween themed music as well as top trending hits that made the event even more memorable to everyone in attendance. DJ Lori went above and beyond by coming out to our location prior to the event to discuss set-up (given the event was outside) and joined in on the holiday fun by bringing her own decorations to her set. DJ Lori provided great communication from start to finish. She made the process in highering a DJ for any event very simple and stress-free. We look forward to working with Lori for this same event next year! More...

We hired Lori for a dinner party at a conference our organizations hosts. Price was very reasonable, she was set up and ready to go with time to spare and her musical choices fit the evening perfectly. Great dinner music followed by an even better dance party. Her setup was also much more than we expected with lighting all around the room. I would absolutely recommend her services and hire her again if we are back in the Chicago area! More...

DJ Lori is amazing. She is competent, confident, organized, and communicative!! Big big bang for our buck! We had a 200 person post Covid wedding with people ages 8 months to 80 plus years and EVERYONE was on the dance floor, stayed on the dance floor, and didn’t want the night to end.

Right away she was a completely engaging, calming presence.

Throughout the planning of the day she stayed in personal and professional contact ensuring that specifics would be seamlessly navigated. We held a flash mob to surprise the bride and groom that involved about 75% of the guests—it. Was. epic. DJ Lori was wonderful throughout.

I would hire her again for any event!

I writing this review months after my home wedding was held earlier this year (it was originally scheduled for Sept 2020 at a venue) but I wanted to say what an fabulous and wonderful DJ that Lori is. Our wedding plans were interrupted during COVID but long story short, Lori was point on with everything. Between changing our wedding date twice (because of the pandemic and understanding that we needed to keep our wedding small and at home versus our original plans at our paid-for venue) and understanding how stressed we were to go from 250 people at our planned venue to just 40 at my mom's backyard, Lori handled everything perfectly and worked with our disrupted plans several times and all with no problems. What a relief I found her! Thank you so much, Lori for everything you did for my husband and I! I highly recommend Lori for your wedding or any other event! More...

AMAZING DJ!!! Dj Lori did an excellent job with our company Christmas party this past weekend!! She took requests from our employees throughout the entire evening, showed up hours ahead of time to setup, and played a great variety of music for our multi-ethnic range staff. Plus her setup is so beautiful!! Love her lights!! Latin music, house music, hip-hop, top 40, 80's and 90s and more to keep our guests dancing on the floor all night!!! We will definitely hire her again!!! Thank you, Dj lori!! More...

DJ Lori was dee jay for my husband's 60th surprise birthday. First of all if I can rate her a 10 a would.....she was absolutely amazing! ! Her mix of songs that I sent her were so fun. She really got the guests moving pretty early in the night, she even got the 20 and 30 years old there on the dance floor! We all loved how she handed out props throughout the night too. I even had her stay an extra 2 hours because everyone wouldn't get off the dance floor. I would definitely use DJ Lori again in the future and I know my friends would too. More...

We hired DJ Lori to be our musical entertainment for our 50th high school reunion. She was totally professional and knowledgeable about what our generation’s musical preferences were. She has a great personality and was easy to work with. Lori actually made me look good to our group as I was in charge of finding a DJ. I found her by doing a Google search for DJs near me. Lori’s equipment and party lighting are grade A. I would totally recommend her business for any celebration you might need music for. More...

Wedding DJ

My wife and I booked DJ Lori to help us host our wedding. To say we made the right choice was an understatement.

Lori was extremely communicative, helping us figure out the flow for the entire wedding reception from the moment we showed up, to the moment the lights came back on at the end of the night. Lori helped us write up a schedule, time everything perfectly, and also had wonderful ideas to help make the date uniquely "ours".

On the day of the event, DJ Lori coordinated with the reception venue and was able to get EVERYTHING done without having to ask a single question of the bride/groom as she had all her answers ahead of time. DJ Lori was set up and ready to entertain our guests the moment they arrived.

Additionally, DJ Lori was extremely receptive to in-the-moment changes throughout the night. Never once did we receive anything other than "Yes" from her. She would change songs, change volumes, move around the timing of things, just to make sure everything was perfect.

Not only that, DJ Lori came out from behind the DJ Booth and even got down on the dance floor! We loved that she had so much fun and made sure that every single guest we had, enjoyed their evening. DJ Lori was extremely sweet, kind, courteous, and brought the perfect amount of the "Chill" factor to our evening.

Planning a wedding is very tough, but if you're looking for an event DJ, DJ Lori is absolutely the way to go. She'll take the entertainment of your guests as her personal mission and no matter how high your expectations are -- she'll beat them.

5000 stars out of 10. My wife and I look forward to working with DJ Lori again in the future.
