With years of experience under his belt, Alex helps newlyweds across the country celebrate their new chapter, creating personalized playlists that have everyone dancing all the way home.

My wife and I contacted Alex as we found his business on weddingwire. Once we reached out, Alex responded fairly quickly and a call was scheduled. He was very patient with us and very transparent of how he runs things as the DJ. DJ’s can really make or break your wedding and we wanted to ensure that we had someone good lined up. Alex was very specific on what his expectations were, which really put us at ease. During the planning process, he was extremely helpful in helping us make some decisions regarding what to have and what not to have. Alex surpassed both of our expectations on the actual day. The wedding flow was extremely smooth and he worked with us for our playlist. I would 15/10 recommend Alex. He is an amazing DJ for all your needs. Thanks again Alex!

I had the pleasure of attending my son's wedding this past weekend, and I am beyond thrilled to share my genuine appreciation for the outstanding services provided by Nicky Avalo Studios. As a fellow wedding photographer, I held high expectations, and I can honestly say that Nicky exceeded every single one of them. The DJ was nothing short of phenomenal. He worked hard and kept the energy soaring and the dance floor packed throughout the entire evening. It was an absolute blast! The Photo Booth, which was an absolute hit among the guests. The attendant brought was a lot fun and there was a line of people all night. But what truly stood out was Nicky Avalo himself. From our very first consultation to the day of the event, Nicky proved to be incredibly responsive, accommodating, and went above and beyond to ensure that every single one of our needs was met.

We booked BWK originally for our November 2022 wedding. They had come highly recommended by two cousins who also hired them (and we LOVED them at those weddings so knew that they could deliver a good time!). When an unfortunate family emergency happened and we had to change our wedding date, Taylor was absolutely so kind and easy to work with, and made the very difficult task of moving a wedding from Fall to the following summer, a lot easier to manage. The band was sooo spectatular too. We did an 11-piece band and every single member completely brought their A-game the whole night. We received so many compliments on how much fun our dance floor was. Thanks BWK for making our night one to never forget :)

Funktastic Productions Llc.

Chicago, IL
  • Band or Ensemble
  • Starts at $10,000

The name Funktastic is more than a genre of music - it’s a tight-knit family of stellar talent with a finely and meticulously curated repertoire spanning every style of music. 6-15 Piece Bands, Live DJ Hybrids, Photo Booths, and more, Funktastic is reserved for those who have a refined musical taste and need for having the best night of their lives. A collection of Chicago's finest black voices, musical authenticity comes from within the music. Musical authenticity comes from what's within the music. By tributing legendary artists with inclusion and diversity, we help preserve the African-American art form of Motown, Hiphop, Pop, and more!

It’s been 2 months since my wedding and I still have no words… Funktastic is by far the best wedding band I’ve ever heard (and yes, I’m biased so take it from the nearly 30 guests that told us the same)! Mike was so fantastic to work with, answering all of my many questions and putting me at ease. Amber was so incredibly organized and beyond helpful in working with us to create the perfect setlist. And now the band… while I was referred to Funktastic by some friends and coworkers, the thing that really sold me was the energy that the band brings, the band members’ MANY masters degrees in jazz (like what, music theory is so hard!!), and their insane ability to captivate an audience with their talent. Our singers were some of the best that I’ve ever seen, putting in these incredible riffs and belts that is practically unfathomable. Our band members were so in sync, vibing off of each other and putting a unique spin on every song. Needless to say, if I have any excuse to book a band for an event, I will 100% come back to Funktastic. Mike, Amber, and the entire band - thank you so much for making our music vision come to life! (Here’s to hoping all of our friends book you guys so we can keep seeing you perform)

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

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!!

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

Hi, I am DJ James. I have 20 years of DJ experience, including hundreds of weddings and other gatherings. I utilize all the latest MP3 and Lighting technology that will make your next event a big success! My main mission is to provide ultra low cost DJ & Lighting services in combination with ultra high production value to all off my clients. Many DJ's and DJ companies nickel and dime their potential clients to no end and then have the audacity to provide sub-par performance and use outdated or just plain cheap equipment. Not so with DJUj. All my equipment is updated and I always use state of the art equipment.....Yorkville, Shure, Mackie, JBL, QSC, Sony, employing backup components. There is never a charge for set up/break down, and I do welcome all of my clients to see me live if they would like. This is something many DJ's & DJ companies will not do as they do not know who they are going to send out. You always get me and only me.

James was amazing. My husband and I wanted to have the perfect blend of nerdiness and class, and James helped us pull it off. We didn't get him much direction other than our special dances and play instrumental music during dinner, and he independently played instrumental game music for us. It was absolutely perfect. When the dances start, he played the perfect songs to keep everyone on the floor. It was a wonderful experience working with him.

started DJ' ing as a kid with old fashion turntables and records about 30 years ago preforming at various dances, parties and events.

Because I have a stable income source, I don't DJ just to make money , and its "not just a job to me". It's my passion! As a result, your event gets 110% of all my effort and attention because I love what I do and care that my clients are always satisfied

Five-O is the way to go! Tom was the best DJ we could have asked for for our wedding. He provides you with great planning materials to set you up for success for your big day, and sits down with you to go over every detail so the day goes without a hitch. Our reception could not have gone any better. Our goal was to have our dance floor packed the whole night, and Tom accomplished just that. He was fun, engaging with our guests, and read the room well to keep the night moving. We would hands down recommend Tom to anyone. Thank you Five-O DJ!!
