Boombox Entertainment

Braidwood, IL
  • DJ
  • Starts at $1,245
  • Serves Bloomington, IL

EST 2015 Owner Brad has aspired to build this business on the love and knowledge of his Uncle’s 30 year wedding business, and add the modern mixing & lighting today’s couples deserve. We don’t view other companies as competition, but rather collaborators to grow with. Every client deserves the right fit for their DJ.

If you are looking for a DJ that is easy to work with, super friendly, and listens to exactly what you want then you need to use Brad! We gave him a list of songs we 100% wanted played (they were all over the place in genre, beat and tempo) and he made them all fit in perfectly! We also gave him songs that we did not want played which were not! Almost everyone at my wedding was on the dance floor because of the fun exciting atmosphere he made! He has multiple different packages you can choose from and you can also add things to your package if you don’t see it on the one you like! The lighting he also has to offer was amazing and made for some cool pictures as well. You can get ahold of him easy whenever you have questions or concerns as well.

DJ Obie 

5.0

Moline, IL
  • DJ
  • Starts at $3,500
  • Serves Bloomington, IL

I got into DJing by accident. After learning that working as an Industrial Engineer in a fortune 500 company didn't bring me much fulfillment, a friend suggested I join his DJ company. His company supplied DJ services for over 200 weddings a year! After my first wedding gig I was hooked. It gave me purpose, and an outlet I never knew was possible. I quickly became the most requested DJ in the company and within my market. Now I DJ on my own, and I'm so blessed to be able to curate an atmosphere of joy where families can connect.

When it came to planning my wedding, there were a million things on my mind, but finding the right entertainment turned out to be a breeze, all thanks to DJ Obie Entertainment. From the moment we connected, it was clear that we were in good hands, but little did I know just how exceptional our experience would be. DJ Obie was more than just a DJ; he was a true professional who approached our special day with unmatched dedication and expertise. His level of organization and communication was unparalleled, easing my worries and allowing me to fully enjoy the lead-up to our wedding. From the get-go, he embraced our event as if it were his own, and that level of commitment was evident in every aspect of his service. One thing that truly stood out was DJ Obie's meticulous preparation. He had a comprehensive spreadsheet with all the necessary information, including details I hadn't even thought of. This level of attention to detail not only impressed me but also made the entire process smoother and more enjoyable. On the big day, DJ Obie proved himself to be the life of the party. He seamlessly coordinated with our wedding coordinator, ensuring that every moment flowed effortlessly. From the ceremony to the reception, his music selection was spot-on, keeping the energy high and the dance floor packed. Speaking of the dance floor, DJ Obie had an uncanny ability to hype up our guests like no other. People who I never expected to see dancing were out there, having the time of their lives. The atmosphere was electric, and the compliments about the party's liveliness are still pouring in. In short, our wedding wouldn't have been the same without DJ Obie Entertainment. His professionalism, talent, and passion for what he does shone through every step of the way, resulting in an unforgettable experience for us and our guests. If you want your event to be nothing short of amazing, I wholeheartedly recommend DJ Obie. You won't regret it.

We recently had our wedding on May 3, 2024, and Jeff from BTSound was our DJ. Jeff was absolutely awesome to work with and really listened to everything we had to say. We had an interview with him beforehand, and it made me instantly want to work with him. As an avid music fanatic and house head, we didn't want just a "wedding DJ"; We wanted a real DJ, and Jeff truly is one. He has the background to back it up. Jeff was very easy to work with, incredibly personable, and willing to play whatever we wanted to hear. We couldn’t have found a better DJ for our wedding.

As a wedding vendor, you get a peek behind the curtain and see the best and worst of other vendors. Oftentimes, I see a side of DJ’s that isn’t pretty… uncooperative, unprofessional, unprepared. I see none of that with Cory. He is a kind, genuine, and caring person and that reflects in how he runs his business. I cannot recommend him enough.

Awarded Best of Zola
- [ ] I couldn’t recommend Carter Events enough! I stumbled upon Carter Events in my search for a DJ. What I found was much more than that. I could not believe how many services were available from the same company. How neat is that?! Since we did already hire an officiant we did not need that service but would otherwise have taken full advantage. We did, however, utilize the day of coordinator along with the DJ and Photo Booth. I loved utilizing all three services with one main person to coordinate with; it made it easier and much less emails to write. Not only does Carter Events offer many services but they are top notch too! The communication was prompt and clear, and any questions I had in this unfamiliar territory were answered with an eagerness to help. Carter Events sincerely cares about your big day and will help ease the process in any way. My sister also utilized Carter Events for her wedding and I’d recommend to anyone planning their big day. We loved working with Steven and his crew. Some members I did not meet until the day of but I wasn’t worried because I knew, from all the communication and sincere care for our wedding, that anyone from Carter Events would be just as great at Steven himself. Thank you so much for making our day special!

Rhythm & Lights

Allendale, MI
  • DJ
  • Serves Bloomington, IL for additional fees

SO Rhythm & lights was founded in 1989. And the premise is really simple, simple pricing that includes everything we got. We only have two add ons. If you need the ceremony, and if you want a photobooth. Our teams going to setup all the lighting, and give you their all every single time, because the price doesnt dictate if they do that. We got you covered from every aspect. We do not do hourly rates, so no need to worry about the smallest details. BEcause we worry about the smallest details. You can just have FUN at your wedding.

Rhythm and lights exceeded our expectations. They were easy to work with every step of the planning process and very helpful. As a nervous bride this was very important, their attention to detail throughout was a huge weight off my chest, knowing I didn’t have to worry about anything. Mitch was our dj and he was absolutely amazing. The reception flowed flawlessly and the dance floor was full all night. (Ask for Mitch) I can’t imagine how different my wedding would have been if I hadn’t booked Rhythm and lights! Literally the best ️. Thank you!!!

That week, our actual Dj, Alan, called us to introduce himself. He stuck with our playlist, but also did a pretty good job of reading the room.

A Chicago based DJ that has worked events in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York City, Miami, and Internationally. He likes to draw from from his roots in Houston, New Orleans and current home of Chicago to create a fun atmosphere for his clients. Graduate of Xavier University of Louisiana and Tulane University in New Orleans, this former social worker knows a good party.

DJ Chriss was so great to work with for my husband and I's wedding day. We really took our time to create a more modern wedding playlist from ceremony, to cocktail hour, and into reception as we wanted a more upbeat and lively atmosphere that is in sync with who we are as a couple rather than your standard classic wedding playlist we've heard over and over that we can't really dance to the way we would like. He listened to us and appreciated the list we sent over while understanding our taste and adding some songs to it throughout the wedding day that made for an amazing time that our guests can't stop talking about! -Kristin and Ryan Roberts 6.25.22

Cuarteto Guataca 

5.0

New York, NY
  • Band or Ensemble
  • Starts at $2,000
  • Serves Bloomington, IL for additional fees

Bassist and bandleader Josh Levine got his start in the professional music business busking in SoHo with The Flying Neutrinos in ’93, so when NYC shut down in Spring of 2020, he capitalized on his experience as a street performer and began to play regularly in the parks of NYC with percussionist and sonero, Jainardo Batista, renowned flutist Itai Kriss making his debut on Cuban trés guitar, and María Raquel on vocals and minor percussion. Before long, the quartet had generated some buzz, several venues hired them to play outdoors and pianist Gabriel Chakarji and Grammy winning flutist and vocalist Jeremy Bosch became staples of the group.

I have used Cuarteto Guataca both personally (birthdays, family events) and professionally as a wedding/ event florist and event planner for YEARS. Every time they manage to get everyone on their feet. They are super professional always and extremely easy to work with. Hands down, Josh and his band will always be my first choice for latin entertainment (any entertainment for that matter)!!
