DJ Obie

Moline, IL
  • DJ
  • Starts at $3,500
  • Serves Collison, 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.

Obie is a phenomenal JD. His energy and vibe is perfect for any event! He is very down to earth and extremely easy to work with. I guarantee he will get everyone out on the dance floor! Definitely worth every penny.

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. If you’re looking for a DJ who understands music and will make your event unforgettable, Jeff from BTSound is the one to go with.

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.

DRS MUSIC, INC

  • Serves Collison, IL

David Rothstein Music was started in 1999. David believes each couple/client deserves to get exactly what they need for their specific event. DRM has a wide variety of ensembles and song choices to make every event meet and exceed your expectations!

We always ranked the music as the number one priority for our wedding, and we’re so glad we entrusted David Rothstein Band to bring our party to life. Planning a wedding during Covid had many challenges, including not being able to see the band live, but thankfully, David has so many live videos available where we can see the entertainment his band delivers day in and day out. Those videos, along with David’s passion for his work, made us confident to chose his team to make our day special. For our wedding, we had a classical duo during the ceremony, a pianist during cocktail hour, a jazz trio during dinner, and an incomparable 10 piece orchestra to dance the night away. From the first note to the final encore, we were BLOWN AWAY with the talent and energy that the band brought. We had a few special requests for the night - from a unique arrangement for our ceremony processional to a mashup of New York songs during the reception - and David’s team was beyond accommodating. We had dancing for 3 hours straight and not once did anyone leave the floor - the band was able to feel the energy in the room and chose the right song for the moment. I stumbled across the ingoing setlist after the party and was actually surprised to see that the band didn’t even stick to the songs they had picked - a sign that they adjusted based on what the crowd was loving. It’s been nearly a month since the big day and people keep telling us how amazing the music was, and we can’t stop watching the many videos David took from the night, reliving the magic that his band created. If you’re thinking about which band to have for your wedding, look no further than the David Rothstein Band - you won’t be disappointed!!

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

Then, they kept everyone engaged and entertained for the reception, from my aunt in a walker to my college friends twerking.

I can't recommend Jim enough. It was a treat to have him at our wedding. At first we were just going to have him for our cocktail hour, but due to Covid had to change our wedding up and we had Jim play all evening for us. You should seriously look no further. Jim is a talented passionate musician and will add a beautiful touch of elegance to your wedding day or other special event.

We used Jared/ Right on Q entertainment for our wedding on 1/15/22. The whole process with him was smooth sailing. He was available for questions at any point in time and was always prompt in responding! He is VERY knowledgeable and was able to assist in creating our reception timeline as well. He was so easy to work with and always made us feel like we had nothing to worry about. The day of he was very professional with all guests and people never left the dance floor. He was very good at reading a crowd. He even listened to my Maid of honor's speech and played a song she mentioned that we didn't even originally request which we thought was a great touch! He truly cares about what he does and the people he works with! My only complaint would be that I don't have a reason to work with him again!

Okyne Medialab is a contemporary wedding DJ business based in Austin, Texas and Chicago, Illinois. This entertainment company strives to bring a fresh perspective to the DJ industry. While still taking the lead on the night, these DJs will remain true to your vision and expectations.

A few days before our wedding, I got a message from Al saying our DJ had COVID and that they were going to send someone else. I was super bummed because I had loved our original pick (DJ Marcus) who did a fantastic job DJing our friends wedding in 2021. The replacement DJ (DJ Jose) called us right away to review all the details of the night with us. I was still hesitant, but was beginning to feel more comfortable during the conversation. On wedding day, DJ Jose was kind, professional, punctual, and ABSOLUTELY KILLED IT on the dance floor!! No one sat down for the entire night and guests are STILL raving about DJ Jose! Many guests have even requested Jose's song selections for the entire day (ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception) because they loved it so much! Props to Okyne for having such talented DJs that can pick up events for each other and still do a fantastic job. Al was very responsive and easy to work with, as well! Smart choice for any couple that is looking for a party on the dance floor

New York, NY
  • Band or Ensemble
  • Starts at $2,000
  • Serves Collison, 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.

Cuarteto Guataca is AMAZING. Every single member of this group is an absolute joy to work with, and their talent is beyond words! Cuarteto was our wedding band, and I don’t think anyone sat down the entire reception! Hire them now!!
