Review by Heather Y.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on May 14, 2022From Plainfield, IL

Gary was awesome!! Music was such an important piece to my reception because I had such a big cultural range of music I wanted played and I’m so happy I chose Gary. I looked through so many reviews for so many DJs because I was so nervous and I’m so happy with my choice. He was so easy and accessible to work with during the planning process and had the dance floor filled the entire night. Gary is nice, sweet and a professional, taking his work seriously to make sure you have the perfect night - book him!!

Main Event DJ:

Thank you so much Heather and Ryan! It was an absolute pleasure being your DJ and your crowd was electric! Your diversity of music requests was superb and really gave us all a taste of great music from many cultures. I know I’ve added some favorites to my playlists as a result of your reception! So fun working with you both, thank you so much!

WeddingReviewed on October 22, 2008From Barrington, IL

My wedding day was perfect. Main Event DJ & Event Sevices was a big part of making it perfect. Gary was professional, fun, entertaining and kept our guests entertained. I could not have asked for more. This DJ service was easy to work with from the beginning and when planning a wedding is stressful, Gary made it worry free. Many of my guests raved about Main Event DJ Services and I have to agree. I would highly, highly recommend this service to any newly engaged couple for their wedding. Thank you Gary for being so wonderful!!! Michele Salazar in Lombard, IL

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on April 29, 2017From Saint Charles, IL

Gary was wonderful. He was accommodating any time we asked to meet with him and answered any questions we had. Gary was professional and the music was perfect for our wedding. The up-lighting looked amazing! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ! I would highly recommend Gary and would most definitely use him again in the future, Thank you for making our wedding so memorable Gary!!! Stephen & Julianna Mazzola
