"Gretchen and All Events DJ was AMAZING. We had been to a cousin's wedding where they used Gretchen and her company and the crowd always seemed to be involved and the dance floor was always packed. When we booked them, Gretchen was in contact with me via phone and email to make sure that I had all of the planning information that I needed. They also offer a really neat online request tool for the wedding guests to put in their requests prior to the wedding. Once the week of the wedding rolled around, Gretchen actually allowed me to extend the end time of the music at no penalty. Both her and her staff are friendly and truly cared about making it a memorable night for all. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a good party." - J & K O'Donnell
"For anyone looking for a review, my husband and I hired Gretchen of All Events DJ to DJ our wedding out in Grayslake, IL, and this was probably the best decision we made for the whole event. Everything went off seamlessly, especially considering we were having it at a venue where I had to hire all vendors (food, drinks, bartenders, music, etc.) from outside places; they didn't come with the venue. So one can imagine I was a little neurotic and panicked about not knowing what to do when and not knowing how to transition from thing to thing. She came and tied the whole thing together and kept it moving as it should go. What a relief! From the first time I talked with her on the phone about what I was looking for, I knew we had found the best DJ for us. Mainly, I usually hate the normal set DJs play at weddings and their larger than life wedding personas. But she's so not one of those obnoxious DJs who has to be in the spotlight the whole night. She listened to everything we wanted, she put it together beautifully and she stayed part of the behind-the-scenes stuff rather than trying to be the show itself. We were so pleased with her work. She kept our dance floor absolutely packed all night. I've never had such a good time dancing to excellent music all night, I think, in my life. Which, you know, is a great thing to have at your wedding when you want it to be memorable. My best memories of our wedding is dancing with my husband, friends, and family all night long. In fact, my only possible complaint could be that I could hardly sit down and catch my breath during songs I didn't want to dance to, since I pretty much wanted to dance to every song she played. Awesome service. Highly recommended." - M Hofer, Joliet, IL
“I would just like to take this time and thank you so very much for the absolutely fab wonderful job you did at my wedding along with your assistant, and for everything before the wedding! I enjoyed working with you, I learned a lot, and I can't thank you enough for your help with my photographer and making sure he stayed and got all the pictures I wanted! I got so many wonderful compliments from everyone at my wedding. I saw people dance I never saw dance before! And what you did for our 102-year-old Aunt, people are still talking about, they thought that was one of the best things ever! I wish I could have my wedding over again, I had a blast and wished I danced more. Again, thank you for making my day so special!” – N Booth
“Hi Gretchen, We enjoyed meeting you as well. In fact, we were so impressed that we decided to cancel our other appointments and ask you to be our DJ! Your knowledge and love of music is obvious, and you were so helpful and detail-oriented that it was a simple decision to make.” FOLLOW-UP: “Gretchen, Thank you for making our night memorable. We got off to a bit of a slow start (our fault), but once things got underway and you took over, everyone had lots of fun. We had several people comment on the great job you did, and we would definitely give a glowing recommendation to anyone who asked.” – D & H Morscher
