We had a great experience so fart with Music By Design. We were referred by a friend that Eric was the best wedding DJ that she had experienced. They did a very thorough presentation for us prior to booking and gave us a great deal for booking so far in advance.

We evaluated a number of DJ’s for our wedding in the west loop of Chicago. We are BEYOND pleased with our decision to go with Music by Design. The service agreement was straight forward, and they made us feel very comfortable that their goals were our goals. The music selection process was incredibly easy and we received exceptional customer service from Dave leading up to the event.

All that being said, our biggest delight was the execution of the day-of festivities. Our DJ (Eric) was amazing. From the ceremony to the cocktail hour and reception, everything went perfect.

We have been getting texts, emails and social media posts about how much fun everyone had on the dance floor. Music by Design was a tremendous value and I cannot recommend them enough.

We highly recommend Music By Design to DJ your wedding. We had met with 3 DJ companies including Music By Design. After meeting with them we knew instantly that’s who we wanted to book with. They were so reasonable compared to the other 2 companies we met with and thought they were a better match for us. Our DJ was Andrew and we thought he did fantastic job with our wedding! We got so many compliments on how great of a job he did and the flow of the music was great and he kept the crowd dancing all night which is what we wanted. Overall we were super pleased with them and highly recommend them!

DJ Eric was everything we hoped for in hiring our wedding DJ. He was very professional from the beginning consultation to the last couple of phone calls and finally to the wedding itself. The DJ was very communicative through out the whole wedding, totally listened to our preferences, our taste in music, and definitely kept the party going! We were also really happy with how easy it was to communicate with Music By Design, the company itself – they always answered email and phone calls on time and promptly and were super easy to work with.

We booked Music by Design for our DJ as well as our photo booth services.

For our DJ, we had Eric.. who was impeccable! He was respectful, LOADS of fun, and kept the party going all night. We told him what songs we didn’t want and what songs we did want, but other than that we said “Play the crowd, feel the vibe and play what you think they would like” and boy did he! He played great songs that kept the dance floor packed the entire reception. Even my uncles (who i have never seen dance) were on the floor all night, sweating it up! We couldn’t have been happier to have had him as our Wedding DJ!

The Photo booth was good – my only complaints would be that the props weren’t very entertaining, and the photo booth attendant REALLY spread out the photos where we had a large amount of strips that had no room to put on the guestbook for people to write messages to us. But other than that, people had a great time taking pictures!

We had DJ Dave for our wedding. After looking at a million places, I read reviews about DJ Dave and decided we would look into Music by Design. From the beginning, he made us feel comfortable and like he knew exactly what he was doing (which he did). He was great during the planning process and the night of as well. We had the dance floor full of with people of all different ages all night long. My parents were worried that their friends wouldn’t like the music he was playing for the younger crowd and that there wouldn’t be a lot of people their age on the dance floor, but DJ Dave did a great job of playing songs that everyone knew and liked. I actually didn’t even give Dave the list of songs my parents had requested, and they didn’t even know because he played so many songs they liked! He was worth every penny-we got so many compliments! I am so glad we went with Music by Design, especially with Dave.

We can not thank Music By Design enough for their awesome costumer service. There is always someone in the office to answer an email or a question. Our D.J., Andrew, was just amazing. We had a pre-recording for our intros, and he had no problem working with us to get the recording and make sure it was played correctly! We were told by our guests that my husband and I really knew how to throw a good party…. and we have to thank Andrew for keeping the music going and the crowd dancing! One of our bridesmaids is getting married in September and they did not hesitate to book with Music by Design. We also had Andrew D.J. our after party which we were totally thankful for! Everything you need to do is online, which was great because my husband and I could do a little at a time and we didn’t have to worry about meeting with Andrew again, just a couple quick phone calls. Being a busy bride to be, this was so helpful! You will not sorry if you choose Music By Design… the best D.J. company out there! Thanks so much for everything, Andrew!!

Initially we met with one DJ and signed our contract. He had left the company and we were worried about starting with someone new. We were so happy we did. MBD had another DJ ready for us. He was amazing. He was so skilled at reading the crowd the entire night. I got so many compliments about him and also had never seen so many people dancing at once. Completely recommend. Great price. Great skill. Very experienced

Tony made our wedding just what we had imagined. We were a little nervous at first when we got a call 3 weeks before our wedding saying that our DJ had moved away, but that they would set us up with another DJ. Nobody wants that phone call weeks before the wedding. We were especially nervous as we didn’t have a very specific playlist for our wedding, as we just wanted our DJ to feel out the crowd and keep everyone on the dance floor. Keep everyone on the dance floor is just what he did. Immediately following the son and mother dance, the dance floor was packed and Tony kept everyone on the floor all night! People were dancing, smiling and having the time of their life! This is exactly what you want to see at your wedding. Tony was also very flexible and patient with us, as we waited until the last possible minute to have our ceremony inside. He was such a pleasure to speak to the week of the wedding and very helpful with suggestions! I would highly recommend having this company DJ your wedding!

My husband and I are so happy we went with Music by Design for our wedding DJ. Our DJ Tony was awesome to work with. We met with him prior to the wedding to go over our music preferences, timeline, special requests, etc. Everything went so smoothly thanks to his attention to detail. We received several compliments from our guests. Thanks, Tony! Our wedding day was even more special because of you!

I stressed about music for the wedding reception for a long time and I shouldn’t have. Our DJ, Andrew, had all of the different generations of our attendees dancing and having fun. I have still been receiving compliments about the music. It was great to have a mix of music with our favorite songs and songs that got people out on the dance floor without being too cheesy.

I could not be happier with our choice to use Music by Design for our wedding! We knew minutes into the initial consultation with David that we wanted to go with them. One of the things that caught our attention was that we felt like we had total control of our music. They do not play anything you don’t want played, and David made sure of that during our wedding. David was our DJ and absolutely blew us away! I received so many compliments from our guests, everyone had a great time! The staff knows exactly what they are doing (I also emailed/talked to Hannah a few times), they are so professional and they make you feel like you can trust them right off the bat. My Dad and I did a surprise during our father/daughter dance and David mixed the music for us without a problem! The online portal is easy to use and I highly recommend using it to it’s full potential. It made our final call with David before the wedding that much easier. The week of the wedding we had a call with David to go over every detail and he made sure we felt comfortable with every little aspect of what was going to happen at all times on our wedding day. He was comunicative during the reception and he kept the ball rolling and made sure everything was happening on time.

We also did a photobooth through them and that was also a very smooth/easy process. Our guests had a great time with that, too! Props are included and guests get a copy of their photostrip, and we got a copy that the guests put into a guest book for us!

I can not say enough good things about this company! You should totally book them 🙂

Our DJ, Nicole, was amazing!! At the last minute our ceremony was moved inside but it was no problem! She was professional, fun, outgoing and really made our wedding amazing! She was outgoing and with the craziness of the day, she kept us on track from our first dance to the garter/bouquet toss. I wouldn’t have chosen anyone else to do our wedding. I defiantly recommend new couples to request Nicole for your wedding day. There wasn’t one thing that we would of done differently.
Thanks Nicole!!

Not only did we love the services provided by David from Music by Design, but we are still to this day receiving compliments from friends and family who attended our wedding stating how amazing the DJ was and the music selection. We didn’t even provide a playlist, just genres that my husband and I prefer and he combined the best of both worlds! Simply amazing!

Wonderful team to work with. They were great from the first time we communicated with them up and through the wedding. Our favorite attribute was being able to talk and discuss specifics with Eric,, the DJ we would have at our reception will in advance of the actual date.The DJ was great as a large number of our guests expressed to us how much they enjoyed the great music mix and vibe during the wedding.

Eric was awesome to work with and really incorporated the guidance we gave him on music selection perfectly with his own ability to ensure that the right mood existed to keep people dancing the whole time.

For the cost i can’t imagine there is a better alternative in the Chicagoland area.

Our DJ, Kenny, did an excellent job at our wedding reception! He played music that my wife and I requested for the cocktail hour. He was very flexible with our personalization with our grand introductions. He announced our bridal party and read a short description of each member. Kenny continuously checked in with my wife and I throughout the night on the music selection and if we wanted any music changed. He was prompted with the reception schedule and good and keeping us on schedule for the first dance. Overall, a great experience with Music by Design. We highly recommend them!

We used Music by Design for DJ services as well as Photo Booth Rental for our wedding a few months ago. We could not be happier with the experience we had with the company. The company’s practice of meeting with your potential DJ before you book with them is wonderful. This allows you to ensure that the DJ is the perfect fit for your big day. We were lucky enough to work with Dave as our DJ, and could not be more impressed. Everyone that attended our wedding has been raving about how wonderful our DJ was the whole night. Dave took control of the night and acted as the perfect MC. His music choices were fun and got everyone on the dance floor all night long. He was extremely professional and it is obvious how much he cares about his job and making everyone’s day as special as possible.

The photo booth that we rented through this company was also wonderful! They allowed us to use our own backdrop as well as some of our own fun props. Everyone had a blast in the booth and the photo strip guest book is so great!

We would definitely recommend Music by Design to anyone!

Loved our choice with Music By Design! They were absolutely professional and accommodating. We had several questions along the way and they were practically immediate with response. My parents helped pay for the service and they were great about working with them on payment timings as I’m sure one can imagine all vendor payments seem to otherwise hit at the same time.

Song list – my husband and I love our music and it’s not always the mainstream (referring to cocktail/dinner hour). We loved the ability to handpick the majority of the songs that were going to be played that night and our DJ, Sergio did a fantastic job of filling in the gaps.

Sergio was amazing! He was super accommodating to our guests and my main request of the night was while we wanted to allow guests to make requests, to make sure they were tasteful. 🙂 Our dance floor was always full. End of the night our guests made the “one more song” request and Sergio (with venue clearance) didn’t hesitate to appease the audience. ;0) We would absolutely refer Sergio! Thanks so much for making our night amazing!!

David did a fantastic job from our first meeting to the very end of our reception. My husband was very worried about our DJ and had to make the “perfect” choice – needless to say David and music by design was the perfect choice! We received so many compliments on everything with our dj from the ceremony to dinner music to the way he ran out reception.

He was great and helped out so much with organizing our large bridal party getting everyone ready for each step.

I cannot say enough amazing things about David and this company!

Everything about this DJ was fantastic. Their office staff were always very responsive to any concerns either by phone or email. Their online planning tools were great for sorting out every detail along with many music suggestions. We knew more of what we don’t like than what we do like and were able to set up an extensive do not play list which was great. Our DJ for the night of (Eric) called us the week before our event to go over all our details and he definitely got a good feel for what we wanted. He hit it out of the park on the wedding night, fantastic dinner music, very professional, kept the party going. We had many many compliments on the music and when asked if we picked it out all we could say is that it was all our DJ’s doing. Would recommend Music by Design and our DJ Eric to anybody.

David did a perfect job at our reception! Our guests said it was the best wedding they have been to in a long time and I know part of that was the music. He did a great job playing our requests and throwing in some songs he thought our guests would enjoy and it blended perfectly. We had a smaller wedding, and David did a great job whether there was 20 people or just my sister and I on the dance floor. Music By Design’s online portal to make payments, create a timeline, and select music requests was very user friendly. I would recommend them to any bride!

I can’t even describe how happy we are with all that Sergio did for us to make our wedding perfect. He went above and beyond in every way, and we couldn’t be happier with the way everything turned out. He was incredibly professional, yet absolutely charming and sincere with all of my family. He not only played great music, but basically orchestrated the entire night, and kept everything moving along seamlessly. We are so thankful for everything, and would recommend him and this company to anyone for any event!!! Thank you Sergio for making our day as wonderful as it could have been.
Andriana managed our photo booth for the night and also did an amazing job! She was incredibly personable and worked nonstop. So impressed with everything!

We loved working with Jeff! From the moment we first met him to talk about our likes and dislikes musically, we knew we were in good hands. The online planning forms were very easy to fill out and very helpful. Jeff has performed at the Armour House before so logistically everything was a breeze. Jeff was very approachable and easy to work with. We’re glad he was part of our special day!

They were very professional from the day we booked through the end. Some DJs from other companies we met with seemed very unprofessional, but Music by Design really makes you feel appreciated. They are willing to accommodate special requests and are very fun. Our DJ was Zac and he made sure that everything was going smoothly the whole night and that we were happy with the service. The songs he played were great! They are active in terms of playing songs that the crowd is pleased with. If people are not dancing they will change songs to get people on the dance floor. But that was never even an issue because he was on point with songs to keep the dance floor full at all times. Overall we would recommend Music by Design to everyone!

We cannot say enough about Music by Design. Jeff and David were so professional and responsive to our needs and wants. They set the standard for customer service at the highest level possible. Zack N. was our dj and he continued to provide the highest level of service. He met with us in person, called us twice to discuss and confirm every detail of our wedding. We picked very specific music as well as gave Zack the ability to insert music as he felt the need. Zack arrived early and set up and the up lighting, which made the room look amazing. He did an incredible job of keeping the night flowing and making sure people were having the best time possible. Zack kept the dance floor packed the entire evening and people kept telling me how much they loved the music. There was no cheesiness or silly second rate reception stuff. Classy yet the energy was high and fun. People are asking me to send them the playlist. We couldn’t have had a better dj/master of ceremony. Zack exceeded our expectation on every level as did Music by Design. A perfect evening thanks to all their efforts!!!!

Music by Design and Jeff (our DJ) were absolutely incredible! From the first meeting we had with Jeff and up to our wedding, everything ran perfect. And I’m so impressed with how helpful and responsive Jeff was with any questions I had during the whole process. The planning website is also very helpful in setting up your day. And there were a few song requests that didn’t show up in the catalogue but Jeff had no problem getting them for us.

The planning was so easy for us and I can’t believe how smooth the whole day went. The dance floor was packed the entire night and I received many comments from the guests about how much fun they were having with the music. Jeff does a great job reading the crowd and playing music that they will love to dance to. Overall, he really helped make the ceremony and night incredible!

Music By Design was amazing to work with. Great planning website. Andrew was our DJ and he played a great mix of songs we requested. There was not a dull moment. People said it was the most they danced at any wedding. The dance floor was packed all night. The staff at Music by Design is classy and not your typical cheesy wedding DJ. They are professional and affordable.

FANTASTIC service from Music by Design! They were very professional and helpful before the wedding, and their online planning form was awesome – I hand-picked about 80% of the songs for my wedding which is exactly what I wanted. Our DJ was David, and he followed all my wishes exactly. The dance floor was PACKED until midnight, and months later we’re still getting rave reviews about it from our guests! He was fun, energetic, and I don’t think you could get a better value anywhere. I would recommend them in a hearbeat!

My wife and I chose Music By Design because of their rating and needless to say we were not disappointed. Our DJ, Jeff, was absolutely amazing. From the first planning session to the last song of the reception, Jeff was courteous and professional. When I requested that we meet in person again prior to the wedding, Jeff was eager to hear what we had planned. On the night of the reception Jeff coordinated the whole night in amazing fashion and was never over-bearing. Due to my Wife’s Latvian background, Jeff was charged with pronouncing some unusual names, but nailed each and every one of them. We could not have been more pleased with his work and the company that employs him. I highly recommend Music By Design, you will not be disappointed.

Jeff at Music By Design was full of great energy! He kept the party going, which was so much fun! They were responsibly priced and easy to work with. The week of my wedding, I had lost my grandmother the week of my wedding and at the last minute, they put together a tribute to my grandma the three days before the wedding. It looked great! Thank you Music by Design!!!

Every aspect of working with Music By Design and Eric was amazing. From our initial consultation to using the online planning system to the day of, everything ran so smoothly! The main office was extremely quick to respond to our emails, and gave us very clear answers. Eric was great! Very professional and friendly. He read our audience really well, and played the songs we requested, while also grasping what brought our guests out to the dance floor. He kept it full for us 🙂 He also followed our guidelines regarding guest requests. We learned that one of Jillian’s aunts showed up with a typed laminated list of songs she expected to hear played…a lengthy list too. Eric politely took the list and set it aside…and only played one song when the mother of the bride asked him to please play one so the aunt would get off her back. It did the trick. 🙂 Thank you again!

We had Eric as our DJ from Music by Design, and could not be happier with him! He was perfect! He helped make your music selection, kept us on time, and made the whole wedding experience wonderful.

Amazing DJ company! Every time I called or emailed with questions, I would get a response within a couple hours, if not quicker! They are reasonably priced and did an amazing job! Kyle was the DJ at my wedding and he was great! He made sure I knew what was going on and was so attentive to anything additional I wanted. He also played the music for my ceremony, which was great as well. Could not be happier!

We were able to change our song for the mother/son dance up to two days before because we changed our minds even though we already submitted our list of songs 2 weeks prior. Also, at the reception, our DJ was so great I didn’t have to worry about timeline of events because he kept us on track and took care of everything!

We could not be happier that we chose to work with Music by Design. The online planning form was easy to use and any questions we ever had were answered very quickly. Our DJ, Joe, was such a friendly person and he did a wonderful job at our reception. He followed through on everything he promised in our initial meeting such as communicating with vendors, checking in with us, acting professional, knowing what songs to play, etc. He played everything on our “must play” list and the rest of the songs he played using his own judgement were perfect. Everyone at our reception was up dancing and having a great time. We had several people tell us how great our DJ was. I will definitely recommend this company.

We were so happy we chose Music by Design. They set us up with a meeting with the DJ who performed our wedding months beforehand just to talk about what we wanted, and what we were looking for in a DJ. They were extremely flexible to give us the type of music we wanted. Their website lets you customize your playlists so you can choose songs that must be played, played if there is time, and songs that cannot be played. They also go through all the details of the wedding and what songs to play for each event a week before the wedding to make sure everything goes perfectly. They had also worked with our venue before which made everything easier. We received many compliments from our guests about how great the music was, so we were extremely happy. Recommend highly!

Music by Design was so easy to work with from the first day. They were prompt in there responses (they replied within the hour with an email or phonecall!!) Everything on the website was so user friendly with a wide variety of music. If they didn’t have a song you wanted they were sure to get it for you! I would highly recommend them!

We chose Music by Design because they worked a lot with our venue. When we went to meet with them, they really seemed way more knowledgeable and less cheesy than some other places that we spoke to. So luckily, we got David who was fabulous! He gave us a run down of how he does weddings and he lived up to our expectations. He made sure that our bridal party didn’t leave us alone at the head table. He kept everything on time and without any glitches. He worked well with our other vendors to keep everything on track.
We made minimal must play and do not play lists so I felt like we didn’t give him all that much to work with, but I knew he would make our wedding more great than I could even imagine.
Throughout the entire night, David had everyone on the dance floor. He played the right songs at the right times and everyone had such a great time. My husband has a great aunt who never gives anyone compliments, EVER and she was so impressed with our music that was played during dinner.
I highly recommend Music by Design – they are a GREAT value (something worth investing in) and I know my wedding would have never been so fun or enjoyable without them.

My husband and I specifically worked with Jeff who was wonderful to work with. Him and everyone else at Music by Design were extremely professional, accommodating and were consistently easy to work with. When I had numerous questions and concerns, they were always quick to respond back to me and they even gave me additional recommendations and advice beyond everything listed on their website. Jeff was great to work with and everyone at our wedding had a blast! He was completely understanding to our style and was able to read the crowd and what they loved too! Great to work with!

Eric our DJ from Music by Design was an absolute pleasure to work with. He played everything from our ceremony to reception music on cue. We got so many great compliments from our guests asking us if we had hand picked every song at our reception. We picked a few and gave Eric the freedom to play songs to fit the vibe of our playlist. We enjoyed every song he played and had a blast! Thanks Eric for helping us create lasting memories!! Best, Liz & Joe

Tim was fabulous. His communication with us throughout the night was wonderful, letting us know we were coming up on the last dance, a dedication song would be played soon (would the person be around?), etc. Friends thought we picked a great song to lead everyone out to the dance floor, but we had nothing to do with it…Tim picked it. The dancefloor was full and Tim would cut the song if no one was dancing. Couldn’t have asked for a better, stressfree night.I had perfect communication when I was calling Music by Design, and someone was always able to answer my questions. The form to fill out the must plays, play if possible, and do not plays was simple and easy, and Tim followed it to a T! We had some tricky names to pronounce, and with the online forms and talking to Tim a few days before, they were perfect. Our parents were equally impressed.

Our DJ was Jeff and he did an amazing job! Very professional, very responsive and a pleasure to work with! All of our guests complimented him! He took requests, played some of his own picks, made sure to play the songs on our “must have” list and even some special mix requests! We couldn’t thank him enough!

We had Jeff as our D.J. for our wedding. Choosing Jeff was one of the best decisions we made. He played exactly what we asked him to, and really took the time to learn about the type of music we wanted at our wedding. We received many compliments from our older guests about the cocktail and dinner music played and from our younger guests about the late night music. The dance floor was completely packed by the end of the night and we owe much of that to Jeff. Not only was Jeff dressed appropriately and looked great, he had a great personality and appeared like he truly enjoyed his work. He kept our wedding time line in tact and helped move our intros, dances, and toasts along. Overall a fabulous D.J. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding D.J.!

Music By Design was a breeze to work with! Planning our dinner and dancing music was as simple as setting up one face-to-face meeting with our actual DJ and then making all music selections and scheduling the evening on-line. When I e-mailed a request, I received a response the same day. They were also fabulous communicators calling 2 days prior to the event for final arrangements and making sure that we (the bride and groom) were ready for everything in the schedule that evening. The dance floor was packed ALL night long! We had friends and family dancing that we never expected would. By the end of the night, I was asked for specific contacts so my engaged friends could book Music By Design for their weddings!

I never left the dance floor! I greatly recommend Joe and the Music By Design Team!

When you think of a ‘DJ’ you sometimes think of a middle aged man, dressed in a cheesy, cheap tux playing the chicken dance and the cha cha slide. Music By Design is not this.Our Music Coordinator (that title is so much more appropriate) was completely professional. Prompt (arrived more than an hour early so no guests would see him setting up equipment and so the music for cocktail hour would be playing as guests arrived), well dressed (stylish and most importantly, not obvious), and responsive.Tim checked in with us a few times during our wedding planning process, but was NEVER overwhelming or annoying. Music By Design has an unmatched ‘members only’ website that is SO detailed it made me think of things I otherwise would have completely forgotten. It’s so well designed, user friendly and FILLED music samples/lyrics (if for instance you’re not sure the song you chose for your father/daughter dance is appropriate).Several of our friends used Music By Design for their weddings as well. Though the Music Coordinators were different, the quality was the same. We wanted someone who was behind the scenes, played great music, but DID NOT talk or make a production out of our wedding. Tim was just that. However, for some of our friend’s weddings they wanted a rocking, party starter DJ (also through Music by Design). The style was different compared to ours, but still remained classy and played great music. Music By Design does a fantastic job of matching the right Music Coordinator to the style of you and your wedding.Their price is also completely reasonable. It was lower than most DJ services and for what you’re getting, there’s no reason not to book them!A++++

Jeff was our DJ for our wedding and was FANTASTIC!!! From the moment our guests walked into our venue he had music going and set the mood for the night. They have a form you fill out online- a breakdown for your wedding so you get everything you want for you day- it’s easy and really helped me make sure I had everything covered!
The day of, he worked the crowd and kept everyone on the dance floor. There wasn’t a moment the floor was empty. He would check in with myself and the groom before announcing anything during the night and made sure we were ready for our first dance, bouquet toss….etc. It felt like we were calling the shots and he was running the show! Exactly what you need/want!He is able to feel how the night is going and cue the music to keep everyone moving. Our Best man even wanted to add a sound cue to his speech and Jeff was able to make it happen with perfect timing!I would 100% reccommend Music by design and Jeff for any Bride that wants a phenominal DJ!

We had the pleasure of working with David from Music by Design and he was FANTASTIC! He was always prompt returning emails and phone calls, answered a ton of questions and was the best DJ I could have imagined at our wedding :)Their online form for selecting music and laying out the details of the evening was extremely easy to navigate. It gave us some great suggestions for music to play and not to play, too!Also, our wedding was the first one that I have been to where all of the attendants names were pronounced properly! All our guests could hear the toasts loud and clear without any screeching in the microphones. David made sure that the music flowed throughout the night and he kept the dance floor busy.Last, we had the photobooth there as well and it was a huge hit! Definitely add that if you can. They brought a ton of props and the photo book that we received at the end of the night was hilarious.

As a bride who tends to be a perfectionist, both Music by Design and Jeff exceeded my expectations. Jeff did an exceptional job. Weeks after the wedding, we are still receiving compliments on how great the music selection was. My husband and I truly appreciate Jeff’s professionalism and how he catered to all of our requests with no issues. I would, without a doubt refer Music by Design again, and again!

Tim was an amazing DJ. When we were having trouble with our photo slideshow, Tim worked to export it so we could transfer it to another video, which was above and beyond his job. He also did a great job of making announcements and keeping his presence discreet but familiar. I would definitely recommend Music by Design if you are not looking for cheesy wedding music and DJ!

AMAZING DJ Tim did a great job keeping people on the dance floor! He played a great mix of the music we wanted to hear along with the music the guests were responding too. He was very flexible with the timeline of events and did a great job making sure that we had what we wanted. The uplighting for our party was also provided by the DJ and it looked amazing, thanks again!

Music By Design is fantastic. From beginning to end they were helpful, courteous and attentive. Kyle our DJ is a rockstar and really made the party at our wedding. The guests from the other two weddings at the venue were coming to our room to peek in to see what all the fun was. Even another bride told me how awesome our wedding was. My friends are still talking about the good time and great dance music. Kyle held everything together for us in terms of the activities; speeches, first dance, bouquet/garter toss etc etc etc. He made it all happen and it was awesome! Hire them!

Even from our first visit, Music By Design was always very professional and quick to respond. We met our dj before we booked and felt very confident in his experience and personality. Our dj kept the reception flowing on time and let us and our vendors know where we stood in the timeline. Guests were dancing all night (of all ages) and we had an awesome wedding.

Our DJ was so amazing. Prior to our wedding we hand selected every song that was played. Music by Design has a website that you make your playlist on. He played everything we asked and all the music was a hit.

Music By Design is just that – what you want your event to be, with as much or as little personal choice as you want to put in. The website is awesome – allowing you to pick each and every song you want – or just select a few genres and call it a day. Our Ceremony and Reception music was amazing — NOT CHEESY! David was extremely professional, patient, and flexible, even with last minute decisions. Jeff made our event memorable – in all the right ways. Very attentive and listened to our every request and made sure to never play anything on our DO NOT PLAY list. I will use them again – and I will be referring them to everyone I can in the Chicagoland area. THANK YOU AGAIN!

Music by Design was by far one of the best vendors at our wedding. They were highly responsive to email and phone and were genuinely interested in making our event the best it could be.My husband and I planned for an outdoor wedding, until a few hours before when the rain that started earlier that day hadn’t let up. Our DJ, Tim, took control and helped direct our other vendors and guests to the new ceremony location. He asked us more than once what he could do to help and went above and beyond what his contract stated as his responsibilities. By the time the reception came around, Tim played great music and was receptive to what our guests wanted to hear.I would recommend Tim, as well as Music by Design, to any couple looking for a great DJ. My husband and I never worried about the quality of this company because they were first recommended to us by my colleague who used them at her wedding. Music by Design went above and beyond our expectations.

David and I worked very closely on my ceremony and reception and for that reason we are very satisfied with their service.

David Savoia and the rest of the Music by Design staff was superb. I really enjoyed the slideshow they put together and how quick everyone responded to my requests. They day of the wedding, David arrived promptly and interacted with all of the vendors and even informed us of their schedules. He came out and found us right away and told us how the night would progress and was flexible when my husband wanted to change the order of the speakers. David was very compliant and easy going and really had an engaging personality that resonated with all of our guests. It was truly the most wonderful night of my life and I could not have asked for a better DJ.

Music By Design was SUPERB from first contact to the last song! I’m a project manager by profession and still found their level of organization, thorough communication, amiable flexibility, and quality of professional presentation to be very impressive. All of their staff were knowledgeable and consistently aware of details we’d discussed with their peers. Our DJ (Eric) did such a GREAT job of playing our preferences and adapting naturally to the room’s mood while keeping the element of DJ “personality” at a perfect balance that he integrated with our overall event more like a fun and welcome guest than an outside presence.Three closing thoughts:1. I’d hire Music By Design again in a heartbeat. If necessary, I might even change my event date to make sure were available.2. Throughout the process, my wife and I frequently remarked that everything would be so much easier if everyone were as well-organized and easy to deal with as these folks.3. Eric did so well that multiple guests remarked on it and family members were so impressed that they wanted to help tip. You can’t say much better than that. 🙂

Jeff was awesome! He was so great to work with and always was available to answer my questions. He was flexible and really helped to get the party started at the reception. We had a bunch of weird requests, from some rare music choices to adding a special dance the day of the wedding, and he was able to just roll with all of it. Before the last dance, he asked us if we wanted it to be fast or slow and we said we didn’t care. He picked a more upbeat song – and then we changed our minds and told him. He had the fast song slowly fade into a slow song. Also, I don’t know how he knew, but for the last dance song (the slow one) he picked one of the songs that was one of our favorites and a runner up for our first dance song. It was seriously perfect and we didn’t even give him input on that. He also had many great suggestions the day of, like announcing that the photobooth was open.I felt like he really took the time to pay attention to all of our little details and it made everything go so smoothly. This was probably the best decision I made for our wedding. DJ’s really have a huge impact and I’m so glad I had the best DJ around. I couldn’t have been happier, I would definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone!

Working with Music By Design and David was an absolute pleasure from day 1. I planned my entire wedding from abroad and David and his team made everything so easy for me. After meeting with David a few days before the wedding, I really felt stress-free and couldn’t be happier with my choice for DJ services. David really was the hit of the night, the dance floor was never empty, even though there were many other things going on at the same time. People commented all through the night about how wonderful the DJ was, and I could not agree with everyone more! He was super professional, helpful, and very flexible. I recommend David or anyone at Music By Design if you want to have the wedding of your dreams! Great job and thanks again David! 😀

Music By Design is great to work with. The day we came in to meet with them, we met with the DJ that we would have at our wedding. Loved that because most companies let you know who your DJ will be after you book them- not a fan of that. Eric, our DJ, was very professional and answered all of our questions. Their website allows you to pick up to 150 songs on your must play list. Most companies only allow 10-15 and if you’re a music lover like myself, that just doesn’t cut it. Leading up to wedding I got a call from our DJ to go over the timeline and make sure everything I submitted online was correct. The day of the wedding Eric was awesome! He played all of our requests and added some great songs of his own. He played all the right songs at the right time to help maintain the fun atmosphere we wanted. Our guests had a blast and complimented our music selections. He was on point and made sure we knew what events were coming up. We will definitely recommend Eric and Music by Design to all of our other friends! Definitely one of our favorite vendors!

Music by design was an easy choice and great to work with. During the planning stage their website and customer planning tools were awesome. No long list of songs to go through and pick, it was all done on their planning site, and if you have Itunes on your computer you can listen to previews of the songs right from the site leaving no hassle of trying to switch from other music preview sites to learn or remember the names of your favorite songs. Allowing the couple to have a must play, a play if you have time, and an absolute do not play list was a great feature. We did not have much on our do not play list (we love all the cheesy wedding songs such as the chicken dance, macarena, and hokey pokey ;)) leaving a lot up to the DJ. My husband and I have complete opposite tastes in music and was able to select both our favorite genre’s of music and ou rDJ managed to mix them in a way that I could never have done myself. Never leaving the dance floor empty our friends and family had a blast dancing the night away!
The day of our DJ (Jeff Hester) accomodated my last minute changes and requests and was very attentive to both us and our guests. We got the recommendation from my brother in law who also used them for his wedding, we had a blast at their wedding. Having the perfect setting and perfect place doesn’t do the evening justice without the right music and mood set for the guests. Music by Design delivers on all aspects!

Thank you so much to Jeff and the rest of the Music By Design team. When my husband and I first met Jeff, we knew immediately that we wanted to work with him for our reception. Hiring a great DJ was one of our top priorities since we have been to other weddings where the DJ really killed the reception. With Jeff, there were no corny jokes, not constant interruptions or promotions of his company. Instead, Jeff was able to use his professional experience to keep the dance floor packed the entire night. From the cocktail hour until the last dance, Jeff was fun and friendly. Music by Design uses an online planning form that my husband and I were able to fill out to create playlists, etc. The week before the wedding, Jeff called me to go over the final details and get more input about the type of music we wanted to her. We didn’t want the “traditional rat-pack” cocktail hour and Jeff was more than happy to accommodate it. It was so nice to have our cocktail hour music personalized to our tastes and we got SO many compliments from our guests about the great music for the entire night. Jeff ran the reception professionally. Thanks to him, my husband and I were able to relax and enjoy the evening!! Thanks, Jeff!

We didn’t give him a playlist for the night (only dinner music) and he kept our dance floor packed from start to finish with his own picks. All age groups were on the dance floor! I have people still contacting me to tell me it was the best wedding ever. I know I’m a bit bias, but based on our music, it absolutely was the best wedding I’d ever been to. Thanks so much to JOE!
Music By Design was the most patient, helpful and courteous vendor we worked with. If I could give a higher rating, I would.

One of our biggest concerns for our wedding was having excellent music that everyone wanted to dance to. Eric from Music By Design exceeded our expectations. He was incredibly flexible and reliable. The dance floor was packed all night long and everyone said he was the best DJ they had ever heard. We are so happy with our DJ choice, our night could not have gone any better.

We originally chose Music by Design based on feedback that we had read about from other brides/grooms and we were not disappointed. From our first meeting with our DJ Tim 10 months before our wedding, to the responsiveness we received from the team with questions / special requests to the actual wedding itself – Tim did a great job and was amazing throughout! He kept us updated and informed when some of our “special songs / requests” were coming up so we wouldn’t miss them – he was great. He really captured our personality and was fantastic at keeping the dance floor packed the whole time! We highly recommend Music by Design for any special event!!!

Music By Design is a great vendor to work with from start to finish. I appreciated meeting my DJ, Tim, at the office and going over how to navigate their website. Also, their website is easy to use and lets you put any song that you want to be played into your account. On the wedding day, Tim was very professional. He helped me meet my expectations of the reception and aided me in kindly dismissing my family’s impromptu speeches and American Idol moments. The dance floor was packed throughout the wedding, and so many guests complimented the music selection. I highly recommend Music By Design!

David and Music By Design did an amazing job of accommodating all of our special requests as well as making sure our guest had a blast the entire night. The communication by David and the staff at Music By Design was very prompt and this was something that helped us decided on which DJ service to use.We plan to tell all our friends about our experience and how easy it was to work with David and Mucic By Design. Thanks again for everything!

Music By Design was hands down the best vendor we used for our wedding! Kyle was our DJ and he was phenomenal. Honestly, could not have asked for a more friendly or more professional DJ. He ran everything by us before he did it, he was on time, played a wide range of awesome music and kept the dance floor packed all night long. My husband and I will recommend Music By Design to EVERYONE we know and we are so glad things worked out the way they did and we ended up booking with them! Super friendly company who’s motto seems to be “Keep the customers happy” and that’s exactly what they did. They made our wedding that much more fun by us not having to worry about the DJ! Awesome customer service and our DJ called us a couple days before the wedding to go over all the details once more to make sure it was all correct. Music By Design gets an A+ from the Killingers! Brides, don’t do what I did at first and book with a company that may seem a little cheaper… you’ll eventually find out why they are! Music By Design is well worth the cost and they aren’t even that expensive! Very reasonable actually. LOVE THEM!!

Our DJ was Eric. He did an excellent job. He seemed to always be aware of what myself and the groom wanted. He followed our direction to a T and even was able to adjust when dinner ran a half an hour late. I have been getting nothing but praise about our DJ. We have a ton of family that loves to dance and are difficult to please, but everyone had a great time and the dance floor was never empty. I would absolutely recommend Music By Design and Eric to my friends and family.

I first met our dj, Jeff, more than a year before our wedding at the vendor fair that our venue put on. I really liked his energy, and I knew that Music By Design is a trusted and preferred dj service at our venue.My fiancé and I set up a video conference with Jeff shortly thereafter, as we live out of state and were unable to meet in person. We really liked that he walked us through the online music selections system. We loved that we could do everything online – from choosing our favorite songs, to selecting a “do not play” list, to providing our timeline. It was extremely user friendly.Two weeks before the wedding, we set up a phone conversation with Jeff to go through every detail. He was very helpful with our questions, relatable, and we left that conversation confident that he would do an excellent job.Which he did! First of all, most people don’t really pay attention to the music played during dinner, but even as the bride and groom, we noticed the music, and it was exactly what we had asked for. He played songs that we had requested as well as ones that he chose based on our taste, and he was spot on. The true sign though of a good dj is a packed dance floor. We really wanted our guests to have a great time, so we scheduled the reception to go until 12:30am. At that time, when it ended, there were at least 3/4 of our guests still in the room and dancing. It was awesome. The music was great, and we could tell that Jeff has a knack for reading the crowd and knowing what direction to take the night. He put in some slow songs that we had suggested as well as some oldies that my parents had asked for, and he even put in a string of country songs, since that is our favorite genre of music. Everyone told us and continues to tell us that we threw a great party. Thanks, Jeff!

Music By Design was FANTASTIC! Our DJ, Eric, was friendly, funny, and professional. He took the time to listen to what I wanted and put it together. I simply stated two singers from the genre of country music that I love and found my parents and I looking at each other several times throughout dinner because he was playing favorite songs from my childhood! So many people came up to us and said that it was the first wedding they had ever been to where they could stand the music! Thanks again!

Music by Design did an exceptional job at our wedding. Tim was very easy to work with and was well-prepared. He drew from our playlist and also improvised when necessary, as we instructed him, to keep people on the dance floor. My wife and I attended about 8 weddings last year, and none of them had as many people dancing as at our wedding. He read the crowd very well. He was also very professional, well-dressed, and spoke very well on the microphone to make announcements, introductions, etc. I was very comfortable leaving the course of the evening in the hands of Tim. Also, the value of the service is awesome. Great all around!

Music by Design is FANTASTIC and so easy to work with! Jeff was our DJ and we met with him personally for the initial meeting. He explained everything very thoroughly and that we could customize as much or as little as we wanted. Other companies told us they would only allow 50 do-not-play’s and would not let us “ban” a genre because someone may want to hear it (sorry, if I loathe and despise country music, I don’t want to hear it at my wedding – people who want to hear it can listen on the way home).I did select a lot of songs, both to play throughout the evening and for the do-no-play list, and the online tool is very easy to use. I never heard 1 song off of the do-not-play, and Jeff was very good at reading the crowd and selecting music. My parents and I both received several compliments throughout the evening on the music and on Jeff. Pricing is also comparable other DJs we met with. HIGHLY recommended – thanks Jeff!

Great job. Music by Design and DJ David performed exactly as promised when we had our initial meeting. He ran the reception and took a load off my wife and me. I strongly recommend them to anyone who needs a DJ service for any event. True professionals but also made the reception a lot of fun.

I would recommend Music by Design to every bride! They provided EXACTLY what they advertised — a professional DJ. I was able to meet with our DJ, Joe, BEFORE I signed the contact with Music by Design (which was months before our wedding). The online forms that I filled out before the wedding were easy and they made our reception flow flawlessly. We had a call with Joe several days before the wedding to review all the details. We sent him several last minute changes that he incorporated without any hiccups. Joe arrived early to the country club to set up. The music was great and exactly what we talked about ahead of time. Many of our guest commented about how professional and wonderful the DJ was and the music was at the reception. Everyone was up and dancing and Joe never had to be obnoxious or talk too much. He just played music and kept the party going! I can’t say more great things about this company. If you don’t want to worry about your reception music then use Music by Design! And I especially recommend Joe!

My wife and I got married on 11/5/11 and we had Music by Design provide music for the wedding ceremony and the reception. Overall my wife and I were extremely happy with Music By Design – the process from start to finish was excellent and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a DJ.We looked at several DJs and had Music by Design on our short list based on other reviews we read, the estimated cost for their services, and the general vibe we got after running through their website. Once we met with them in person at their Schaumburg offices, we were sold. When the date started getting closer and we got in to the nitty-gritty details we started to use Music by Design’s website planning tools to map everything out. The tools were easy to use and helped us think through the day-of events, including some things we probably wouldn’t have thought about on our own.Towards the end, when all the little things were getting double and triple checked, I ended up sending quite a few emails to Music by Design with questions and specific requests. They were always quick to respond and easy to work with … they answered all my questions quickly and met all my requests.When the wedding day arrived, we had Tim as our DJ. He was very professional and a pleasure to work with. He was helpful and accommodating and through everything that involved providing music/equipment – ceremony, cocktail hour, introductions, speeches, first dances, the reception, etc., – I didn’t have to think about or worry about anything, I knew Tim had it covered and I could just enjoy my wedding. And in the most basic terms, that is everything I could have asked for.

We had a multilingual wedding so naturally we were concerned whether the DJ would be able to mix in songs in languages he doesn’t know. We were actually referred to this company by another company that would not let us choose in advance a specific DJ we would be comfortable with. Our first appointment at Music By Design was with the same DJ who would eventually perform at our wedding. His name was Tim.To handle the multilingual issue, we sent him in advance an extensive list of all the foreign songs we wanted, plus several English songs so he will be familiar with our taste. The fact that he never played many of these songs before was definitely not apparent in the party. Most important for us from the DJ was to keep everyone dancing as much as possible, and make it as worry-free experience for us. His did both things amazingly. He also made all the announcements and took care of operating the AV equipment when we wanted to show short movies. The party itself lasted for 4 hours, and if we hadn’t asked him to call it a night, he would have gone on.We cannot emphasize enough how much we were happy with our decision to go with them and with Tim specifically.

Music by Design is the real deal and we were beyond pleased with everything. Jeff was our DJ and is a natural born entertainer, host and leader. He laid the foundation for celebration and created an enviroment that was a breeding ground for fun in all directions. Jeff is what every bride and groom would want on their special day to bring the music, light and laughter. From start to finish, we knew we were in good hands and could relax and enjoy ourselves.

Music By Design did a great job at our wedding. Our DJ was Kyle and we liked him right away from our first meeting. Their online system is easy to use and lets you enter in “must play”, “would like to hear”, and “do not play” lists (as well as songs for all the other important moments). If you want a song that they do not already have in their library, you can request it and they will download it for you (we wanted a couple specific versions of songs for our ceremony and they found them no problem). Kyle called us the Wednesday before our wedding and went through everything in detail with us.On the day of, he played our ceremony selections just right and he did a really great job keeping the dance floor packed all night. He also pronounced everyone’s names correctly during the introductions (double-checked with us beforehand), and coordinated with us, our venue, our photographers and our videographers to handle the timing of all the events throughout the night. It went very smoothly!Overall great experience with Kyle, and with Music by Design’s management as well. Any emails I sent to them with questions were answered promptly and with good customer service.

Jeff from Music by Design was our DJ. He did a fantastic job. We got lots of compliments on the DJ, and many people said that Jeff was the best DJ they’d ever seen. Everyone seemed to have a really good time. I was concerned before the wedding, because my family doesn’t really get up and dance. However, at our wedding, everyone was up and dancing! The dance floor was full until the end of the night, which was what I wanted.We didn’t set the entire playlist ahead of time- we filled out our “do not play list” and put some songs on our “must play” list. I really liked that everything is online. Their website is easy to use, and it’s nice to be able to fill out the forms whenever, and then go back and edit with new ideas. I also spoke with Jeff a few days before the wedding to give him an idea of what we wanted. It was perfect! I don’t think he could have done a better job.

MBD is awesome! Probably, the best service we got our our money at our wedding (09/23/2011). David was very nice and professional. He made sure everything went smoothly. He also made sure to check everyone’s name pronunciation before the introductions… That was a big deal to me because the bride’s name was mispronounced at one of the weddings I went to- how embarrassing. I hope that we will have our vow renewals, we’ll have a party and we will be able to hire them again. Music By Design(David) made our night! 5 stars, all around!

Music by Design was by far the most professional and best DJ company I met with. I HATE cheesy DJ’s that try to get a bunch of attention at weddings. In my opinion, the DJ’s job is to play music and get people dancing. Joe from MBD did just that and I can’t recommend him enough!! He had us on the dance floor the whole night – there was not one song that cleared the dance floor like I see at some weddings! I focused more on the Do Not Play List (and he didn’t play one song I put on there, thank goodness). I only put a handful of songs on the Must Play List and let Joe do the rest of the work. I don’t have any complaints and would definitely use him again if I have another even where I need a DJ!

We really put a lot of importance on our DJ, so we researched A LOT of them and Music By Design was an easy choice! After meeting with David and hearing about their philosophies and seeing the user interface for choosing music, we knew we were in the right place.Our goal for our wedding was that everyone felt like they had to be on the dance floor and that is exactly what we got. We chose some of the music but David filled in the rest seamlessly with songs that had our little cousins, friends and even grandparents dancing. It was awesome!!! We got so many complements on the DJ throughout the night AND continue to hear how good he was 3 weeks later. (Our event was 8/26/11).Another thing that was really great about Music by Design, specifically David, was how he helped orchestrate the reception and timeline. He organized everyone for introductions, helped our friends feel comfortable with the mic for the speeches and even found my toss bouquet for me to throw later in the night.I can’t recommend Music by Design enough – totally worth the money, totally awesome!

Our DJ for the reception was Tony. He was just great! Our dance floor was packed the entire wedding! Our older relatives have said that they have never danced more at a wedding before. He did such a great job playing older music, newer music, slower and faster songs. Every time a song seemed to let people try to leave the dance floor, Tony changed the song so the floor stayed packed! It was so great! He was so wonderful to work with before the wedding as well. He kept everyone calm and kept the day moving along at a great pace! Thank you so much!

We wanted a great party at our wedding without anything corny. This vendor was recommended to us by a friend and we have no complaints. Fantastic entertainment for the wedding at a reasonable price.

We had Dave as our Dj and he was outstanding! We were really picky about music choices and speeches, he did an outstanding job the entire day. The ceremony sound was great and the timing of the event was great. We are really happy that we chose Music By Design. We even had several up lights and it helped to create a festive atmosphere.

Our DJ, Tony, was awesome. He kept the dance floor crowded the entire night! While I submitted the “must play” and “play if possible” lists, I specifically requested that the DJ use his professionalism to play whatever would keep the party going. He did just that! He played most, but not everything on the list, and more importantly, he played what our guests wanted to hear and it was fantastic! I would HIGHLY recommend this DJ and the company in general for its professionalism and value.

My now husband and I found Music by Design on a wedding planning website. Based on other reviews, we requested Jeff. Their overall planning process was great! We were able to select “must play” “do not play” and our specific dance songs on their site. We were able to view the top songs requested for the current time. They made everything so easy for us! Jeff was incredible! He played a variety of music that was specific to our tastes. He kept people on the dance floor from beginning to end. We got A LOT of compliments from the guests on the music and overall energy of the reception. Highly recommended!!

Music by Design made our reception rock!! We are still getting compliments about how great Steve was!! He read the crowd like a book, slowing the music down when needed and then pumping them back up again. We weren’t sure if people would want to dance since our dance floor was in a different room as our tables, but Steve drew them in and they stayed all night!! He showed up early to set up to make sure everything worked and he was courteous to all of our guests. We recommend them to anyone getting married!!!!

Steve from Music By Design was the DJ for our wedding reception at Montefiori in Lemont, IL. He was absolutely amazing & worked incredibly hard to get everything up and running. Not only did he have to set up his own equipment, but he also set up mics for the pastor and the live music we had during cocktail hour (both of which were in a garden area off of the main reception tent). Steve kept the party going the entire night! The dance floor was packed from the beginning to the absolute last second of the reception. We would hire Music By Design again in a heartbeat!!!

We had Jeff as our DJ for our wedding and he was simply the greatest DJ we have ever seen! He kept the dance floor full all night and we had so many compliments about him and Music By Design! He truly made our night very memorable!

David, our DJ from Music by Design, made our wedding reception a huge success! We had a lot of different events going on during the dinner hour and David arranged times with the photographer and venue. My husband and I did not have to worry about a thing once at the reception- we were able to enjoy it and we sure did!The planning process was also made very easy. When we met with David for the first time, it was great to know that he would be the one doing our wedding. Some other companies outsource and so you do not know what you are going to get until the week before the wedding. Music by Design has a website that allows you to pick songs for first dances, must play lists, etc… It makes planning easy and organized. We were in contact with David via phone, email and he even arranged to meet with us the week before the wedding to go over names & song choices. We had our wedding party walk into different songs, and David made that happen. All names were pronounced correctly.The dance floor was packed the entire night. Everything went perfectly and it was because of the organizational skills and professionalism of David. I highly recommend Music by Design to anyone!

Music by Design was FABULOUS. Right from the start they exceeded my expectations. They are easy to work with and everyone in the company is very knowledgable and helpful during the entire wedding process.Joe went above and beyond to make our night absolutely perfect. He took great care of the entire night and I truly believe he is one of the main reasons our night ran so smoothly (and perfectly!) He made sure to get everyone’s attention before doing all of the big events (this was something I requested and he did a great job making sure people were paying attention to big things like first dances, cake cutting, ect.) He also gave input to our timeline (something I found really helpful) right before our wedding. We listed a few songs that we would like played but mainly left it up to Joe… to get everyone out on the dance floor..I was a little nervous at first but the dance floor was PACKED the entire night. Everyone from our friends (mid 20s) to our parents and their friends (50s-60s) to every other age was out dancing the night away! People wouldn’t get off the dance floor, they loved his music choices.I would recommend music by design, especially Joe, for any and every wedding. He is very knowledgable, flexible, and simply fabulous when it comes to being a dj at a wedding!This company deserves more that 5 stars in each category!

Our DJ was Kyle and he was AWESOME! We had just about everything you could get from them: name in lights, ceremony, LED lights, etc. Kyle made sure everyone had a great time. Always checked with us about the music. He also played the song we walked into as the last song at the after party. Music By Design is the ONLY choice for a DJ!

I had met MBD at a Bridal Expo and kept them in the back of my mind when the DJ search began. We met with several other companies, and MBD fit in with exactly what we were looking for – completely down to earth and not showy. We also had them take the monogram from our invitations and put it in lights to be displayed on the dance floor – and it came out wonderfully! David was our DJ, and he worked with us over the course of the year before our wedding. He was always ready and willing to help us find some of our more unique song requests, and he had every detail nailed down when we met two days before the wedding. On the actual wedding day, he was nothing but professional and fun to be around. He did a great job coordinating with all the other vendors to ensure the night went smoothly. We have never seen a wedding dance floor so crowded from start to finish. People had the most amazing time, and David did such a great job reading the crowd that people did not want to sit down! To this day, we still get tons of compliments on the reception, and we owe it all to David and Music By Design. I would highly recommend them to anyone!!

Jeff Hester and Music by Design were great. Jeff and the other owner/ manager David Savoia were both very helpful and responsive throughout the whole process of creating our playlists and planning the DJ’s role in our wedding. Jeff has a fantastic personality and everyone enjoyed working with him (me, my fiance, my parents). Music by Design works to make sure that the DJs aren’t a focal point in the wedding/ event (no props, no cheesy interactions with guests), and Jeff was all class and did just that. We had tons of compliments on the music, and when I approached him during the wedding to make minor changes to what we’d originally planned, he was flexible and able to do that. He also checked with us during the dinner to make sure the volume was okay and everything else was satisfactory. I would recommend Music by Design to anyone looking for a trustworthy DJ for his/ her event.
