Nearly 8 years of experience in Chicagoland and suburbs as a freelance DJ, radio DJ, and sound technician qualifies me to handle events from large to small scale. Experience working for 107.5 WGCI-FM, 103.5 Kiss-FM, V103 Chicago, and WCSU Chicago State University radio built my vast knowledge of the the latest pop, hip hop, R&B, throwbacks, top 40, and other varieties of music you name it!

Down to business, if hired I'll create contract, meet to discuss playlist, and arrive 1 hour early *FOR FREE* to set up before guest arrive.

Sam was great at reading the room and played songs to keep the group dancing. Karaoke was so much fun and he had every song they asked for.

Sam did an exceptional job DJ-ing the engagement party for my son and his fiance! We had developed a play list and had asked him to mix up the genres and alternate between fast/slow dances. He did a great job. Did exactly what we had requested. He is also extremely professional, dressed very professionally, accommodated our situation with some weather issues - was on time - did his job, all with grace and respect. We will absolutely reach out to Sam again and will refer him to our colleagues and friends when they are looking for a DJ for one of their events. Top notch. Professional. Pleasant. Very talented. The best! Thank you, Sam. VERY WELL DONE!!

Sam is the ultimate professional. We hired him to play music for our elementary school Benefit dinner for parents. He read the room beautifully, playing upbeat jazz during the cocktail hour and dinner, then got the party started afterwards for dancing. When we ended there were many people dancing! He had great communication throughout the process and some of our guests asked him for his contact info during our event- the ultimate complement. I really liked how he moved seamlessly between music genres, never getting stuck in one just for the popular songs from that period. I would definitely hire again. His prices were very reasonable too!

Simply put he is an awesome DJ. You will not go wrong if you hire him, so do it! Sam handled my daughter's sweet 16 party and it was so much fun. He really interacted with the crowd, he plays all the music to get everyone on the floor dancing and having a good time. I have absolutely no regrets and I'm so glad that I hired him for my event and I will hire him whenever I have any future events as well. He was so professional. He communicated every step of the way prior to the event. And he showed up on time as promised ahead of time to set up prior to the start of the event. Thank you Sam for everything! You are extremely talented!
