*No gimmicks, no add-on fees. You get to meet with your DJ before you decide to hire us, and that Dj will work with your throughout your planning process. You’ll get a well thought out song list for you to pick your must plays and do not plays - state of the art equipment that sounds amazing - and a personally curated, FUN and hip wedding soundtrack and dance party!
How long have you been DJing?
I've been Djing for fun for over 10 years in bars and clubs and parties around Chicago. I started DJing professionally, with events and weddings in 2009 and I fell in love with the whole job, as well as the people I get to meet.
What equipment do you use?
I use the Pioneer DDJ SX2 along with my laptop and Serato, which is the industry standard for live DJing. Along with these I use JBL speakers, Shure wireless mics, and have backups of all my own equipment just in case.
How much do you cost?
For 2018/2019 weddings, we charge $1200 - $1600 depending on your needs. We are based in Chicago, and we are happy to travel to wherever your wedding is taking place, but we might charge a small travel fee to cover gas to get to you.
What is your MC style? Do you make announcements etc?
This is your wedding, not my DJ show! I am definitely there to introduce speakers to give a toast, introduce the wedding party, and make short announcements, BUT I will not make corny jokes, lead a chicken dance, or yell at your guests to get on the dance floor! I let my music speak for itself, and will have your floor packed with everyone from age 5 - 85. All without cheesy gimmicks.
Do you have any samples of your DJ style we can listen to online?
Unfortunately, I can't invite you to pop in to hear me Dj a different couples wedding. And I do not have any online samples to listen to, as I curate each couples wedding to their taste, so no two weddings will sound the same. No cookie cutter pIaylists here! I do have a Yelp page that you can check out and hear what past couples have had to say about Groove is in the Heart! https://www.yelp.com/biz/groove-is-in-the-heart-chicago-3
How do we book you?
Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org), and give me your venue, guest count, and any info you already have. We will set up a time to either meet in person, talk on the phone or Skype to get to know each other, and go over what you are looking for in a DJ. I want to make sure we are a good fit before moving forward. This is your big day, and if I dont think I can deliver on what you are asking, I will definitely let you know!
