Let me start off by saying that you should just stop what you’re doing and hire Windy City Mix. Rodrigo is AMAZING and their pricing is UNBEATABLE for the level of service and professionalism they offer. We hired WCM in November of 2016 for our 9/9/2017 wedding. As an interracial couple looking for a DJ that was well versed and comfortable with the traditional jewish hora dance and traditional salsa/Spanish music, Rodrigo put all of our worries to rest. We communicated by email which was very helpful with all of the other wedding meetings and both of us working full time. Their online playlist tool is so cool and easy to use. It made the whole process so much easier.
On a personal note – Rodrigo, the CEO and mastermind behind the amazing Windy City Mix, actually missed his daughter’s graduation in Florida to DJ our wedding, which shows how dedicated and professional he is. There was a small oversight on our contract asking for him specifically and when we found out that we might have to work with one of his other DJs (they are all amazing but we fell in love w/ Rodrigo) we were adamant about working with him. He accommodated with a smile and put on the best wedding we have ever been a part of . Every single person – from every walk of life – had an amazing time. We also hired their photobooth services which provided some of the best photos of the night.
Our wedding timeline moved around so Rodrigo checked in with me about everything in such a calm manner. He kept us sane the whole night and kept us on track. He also knew exactly what to play in every moment to keep people on the dance floor and calm it down when we needed to toss the bouquet, etc. Their wide array of music and expert knowledge of weddings are enough, but they go above and beyond to deliver the very best. By the end of the night, Rodrigo felt like family. Thank you so much WCM – you made our wedding perfect.

Rodrigo was great! He showed up on time and had everything ready to go…cocktail hour was perfect and the music was perfect all night! He double checked with us to make sure everything was correct before announcing anything or anyone. He put beautiful lights up all over the room and our monogram was perfect! Thanks for doing such an amazing Job Rodrigo!


Awesome Experience!

We could not have had a better DJ experience! We attended two previous weddings using Windy City Mix. Both were awesome so we had to use them for our wedding as well. We received so many compliments from our guests on the music, announcements, and photobooth. The wedding and initial planning could not have gone any better thanks to Rodrigo!
