Corporate FunctionReviewed on June 15, 2023From Lincolnshire, IL

Gary with Main Event DJ was beyond amazing! We hired him to host karaoke and provide a photo booth for our company retreat. He was very communicative and professional leading up to the event, so I felt extremely comfortable and informed of his services. Once onsite, he did a wonderful job of playing MC, DJ, and hosting karaoke. He was beyond accommodating and kind to our 130 employees, most of which wanted to do karaoke! His set-up was more than we could have asked for, with a great sound system, lights, and even a TV that the audience could see with lyrics so they could sing along. Karaoke was absolutely the highlight of the retreat for our employees!!
