AMAZINGLY AWESOME DJs!! I first heard Absolute Music dj at a girlfriend’s wedding and I knew immediately I was going to have to have them dj my wedding! It was so simple booking Absolute Music.

A great value and so much fun! – Morgan

Absolute Music provided DJ services for our wedding at Chestnut Mountain Ski Resort in Galena, IL on Friday afternoon and evening of June 1, 2012. With no effort or worry on our part, Absolute Music was set up and ready to go for our late afternoon wedding. We had some concerns because ours was an outdoor venue (tent) and we were unsure of both the available utilities and the acoustic profile of the area. That said, Absolute Music took care of all the logistics, freeing us up to attend to all the other little details associated with an outdoor wedding. – B.K.

Going beyond providing a smooth and seamless set up, what our guests remembered most about wedding music was how well the tunes flowed throughout the evening. In the months leading up to our wedding we had provided Absolute Music with a comprehensive list of songs in order in which we wanted them played that afternoon and evening. Absolute Music did a superlative job of sourcing the songs we specified, and let me tell you, some of the songs were really out there! Our music encompassed just about every music genre in existence, starting with classical pieces and culminating in contemporary techno dance music. Along the way there was Show Tunes, Classic Country, Contemporary Country, Classic Rock, and Wedding Standards. Absolute Music nailed the song selection and meticulously stuck to our desired progression. In the end the only thing any of us lamented was the 11 PM cutoff for outdoor music at the venue!

Now, two years later many of our friends and family still tell us that ours was the most carefree and enjoyable wedding they’ve ever attended. We would like to pass on to Absolute Music our wholehearted thanks for helping to make our wedding so easy for us and so much fun for our guests. – John Stueber and Karla Frost

Thank you! Thank you! For the awesome entertainment at our reception last Friday and the flexibility with the surprise slideshow last minute! The photo booth was also a huge hit! You guys did great! – Lindsay Staner

Thank you Absolute Music for helping make our wedding day absolutely perfect! From assisting me with picking out wedding songs, your flexibility with moving our ceremony indoors last minute (due to weather), the personalization of the background of the photo booth photos to match our decor, lighting and fabulous music and most of all, the very best customer service a bride and groom could ask for! With all of your help our special day was flawless! We cannot thank you enough! – Ryan and Ealana Roling

My husband and I got married a little over a month ago and we had Absolute Music for our dj. We were very pleased with them.
