He's played the best clubs in the country, from Miami to Milan, and performed at top music festivals like Lollapalooza. His warm and approachable personality is trumped only by an ear for incredible mixes. There's really only one downside here: It may cause a stir when all the single women in attendance can't take their eyes off him. Sorry, ladies, he's taken.
Toast and Jam
This DJ company's name is a nod to the fact that they are true pros at working a wedding. They time the toasts perfectly and can read the crowd to make sure the dance floor is jam-packed. They hit all the DJ highlights without the tacky no-nos, like flashing lights and disco balls or awkward shout-outs to force guests onto the dance floor. They're easy to work with and good at what they do — what more can you ask for? Read real brides' reviews here!

You've probably heard him on B96 or at the United Center as the official DJ of the Chicago Bulls. He's also shared bills with the likes of Lil Jon, Ariana Grande, and Pitbull, and plays the sexiest clubs in town. If you really want him, we'd suggest letting DJ Metro's book be the final say on your actual wedding date.
