"Dhiraj exceeded any and all expectations I could have had from our DJ–and I am very particular when it comes to music. He was highly recommended by some of the other DJs in the Chicagoland area, and right after our first meeting with him, I knew he was going to be the guy. He played our sangeet, baraat, wedding and reception at the Chicago Marriott in Naperville, IL and absolutely killed it from start to finish. Before and during the wedding weekend, he was extremely personable, professional and accessible. He worked with me as well as many of my family members to come up with the appropriate song cuts/medleys and playlist for the festivities.
As far as the events go, the dancefloor was absolutely packed from start to finish–at both the sangeet and the reception, I have never seen the dancefloor full of so much energy and participation. Countless guests applauded our DJ choice and said that it was the most fun they had ever had while dancing at a wedding. Dhiraj had a dhol player at the baraat as well as the reception, and both him and the dholak were absolutely seamless in knowing how to work the music and the crowd. He accommodated both my requests as well as our guests’, and brought his own turntable set and scratched live. You won’t find him on the mic every 5 minutes trying to rev up the crowd because it’s simply not needed–he can take a backseat and let his mixes and the hoppin’ dance party speak for itself.
There aren’t enough superlatives to describe how fantastic a job Dhiraj did…I’ll close simply by saying that you will not regret hiring him!"− Nishant & Deepa Goel
"Dhiraj did an amazing job at my wedding this past November!!!!
My husband and I decided to have our wedding in Downers Grove, IL FOUR MONTHS before the scheduled date. As you can imagine we were all sorts of crazy trying to plan everything in such a short time. On top of that, we both lived out of state and coordinating with vendors was very difficult. Fortunately a close friend of mine recommended DJ D’Stylz for our music.
Dhiraj was very flexible with meeting on weekends to discuss music ideas, dance floor set up, the reception program, etc. He was always reachable via email or txt/telephone during the week– which was much appreciated throughout the planning process. He helped make our wedding amazing as he was familiar with the reception site and had set our dance floor lights perfectly. Dhiraj is very professional to work with and his personality makes him easy to approach.
At last minute, we decided to add a dhol player to the bride and groom reception entrance. Not knowing where we could find one at such short notice, DJ D’Stylz hooked us up. What was great was the crowd was loving it and the Dhol player joined the guests on the dance floor later on in the night which made the experience great and was complimented on by every guest.
With a list of only 10 songs given, DJ D’Stylz was able to come up with a great music playlist for the dance floor and cocktail hour. I have received compliments from almost all of my guests on how much they enjoyed the music and a few of them have already requested Dhiraj’s information for their own weddings and engagement events in the next year. My advise to those reading this review is to hurry up and get in touch with DJ D’Stylz before he gets booked up, cause I guarantee I know of 5 people who are already booking him for spring/summer 2014 weddings."− Jigi Valiavettil
"You MUST get Dhiraj for your next event. I don't care if it is a wedding or birthday party or garba or whatever. He DJ'd my wedding this past weekend and no less than 50 people came up to me to specifically tell me that the DJ was awesome! He brings the lights, the great dance music the spotlights the fog machine, whatever you want.
His Dhol player Noah is fantastic and his partner in crime DJ Hifi spins some of the best bollywood mixes ever.
Music was one of the things I was most concerend about for my wedding so I sent lists and ideas and he was able to craft a playlist that included my songs and incorporated our tastes.
He was open to any and all suggestions and was so easy to work with. He was in constant communication either via email or text so I Could shoot him an idea whenever it hit me.
For the money he is the best around. Ir he charged double, it would still be worth it. Or even triple. My guests did not want the music to end. He obviously does the hindi/bollywood/punjabi music well but he also mixed in american stuff to keep everyone happy.
Book him and you won't be disappointed.− Rahil and Munira
"There’s so many things that are on your mind as the wedding weekend approaches but having a DJ like Dhiraj gives you a peace-of-mind when it comes to the entertainment.
We were referred to Dhiraj by a friend of ours as well as family members who have attended events where Dhiraj was the DJ. Our interaction with him were very productive and professional from the start. He understood exactly what we were looking for and he asked the right questions in instances where clarity was needed.
When it came to the day of the event, Dhiraj was punctual and definitely rocked the crowd. We recently received the highlights of the wedding weekend and we could see how much fun our guests had dancing during the baraat as well as at the reception. We thoroughly enjoyed dancing to his music until they kicked us out. I know many complimented him at the end of the night, weeks after the event and still continue to do so.
I would definitely recommend Dhiraj to anyone looking for a great DJ who will exceed your expectations. In fact, I have already referred him to couple of friends. I would say he is not just a service provider but a creator of memories."− Bhavin & Beejal Patel
"Dhiraj you are truly Ahhhhmazing!! I don’t know if people will take my testimonial seriously, but Dhiraj aka DJ D’Stylz, by far was the most nicest, sweetest guy ever… We had never met before, but we heard about D, from our friends. We got D for my wedding adventure. From the Garba night to Mehndi night to the big day for the baraat, ceremony and reception, he was the first person there and the last person to leave making sure everything was perfect. I can honestly say that he made my life a whole lot easier… He was quick in responding to my emails and phone calls, and D, you are our #1 DJ!!! You will be seeing us again because my cousin is getting married, and they want you!! Once again, thank you for making my wedding day perfect, and enjoy take these gift cards and a token of our appreciation."− Sonia Kaur
"We wanted to thank you for the amazing job that you did at our wedding and reception. Of all the DJ’s we met with, you were the most professional and versatile. Your collaborative approach, attention to detail and personal touch made us feel at ease from our very first meeting. We never believed any vendor would take such time and effort from their already busy schedule to meet with us, as well as assist us with our music selection for our special day.. In addition, your confidence, planning and flexibility made for a smooth and seamless evening that everyone enjoyed. Not only was the dance floor full all night, but you did a wonderful job mixing both Western and Indian music to make sure everyone felt included. All our guests had a great time and I’ve had many compliments from them about how awesome our DJ was. You absolutely exceeded our expectations, and we are thrilled that you were there to make our big day so memorable. Thank you so much!"− Dimple and Krant Reddy
"We recommend DG STYLZ Entertainment to anyone who is looking for a Wedding DJ. Mr. Dhiraj Gupta, from the first meeting was polite, professional, and was listening to our suggestions. We had interviewed many other Djs before Dhiraj, and we can gladly say he made us feel comfortable that we had made the right choice. He made our planning experience a breeze. He took our suggestions and put together a customized package, which fit into our budget, and we saved $500. Dhiraj was terrific when it came to the music. He had all the latest music and mixed them like we have never seen. Our guests had nothing but good things to say about Dhiraj. We highly recommend DG STYLZ Entertainment… They made our wedding a huge success!!"− Allen & Megan Sullivan
"To all the Brides,
I am writing this as a testament to the amazing creative ability of DJ D’Stylz . I was married March 31th, 2012 in Naperville, IL. Naperville has been the location of many weddings, some of which were absolutely stunning. Hence, I was up for a challenge to make mine a similar success. To me, there are 3 important things that make or break a wedding: the food, decorations, and music. As my personality is that of a perfectionist, I was in search of the perfect DJ. After doing a bit of research, I came across Dhiraj’s web page, contacted him, and signed immediately.
To all those that were nervous about committing (like me), I hope this testimony quells any reservations you have. Dhiraj is a very professional DJ. He is more than willing to accommodate requests, but most importantly, he is prompt to answer any questions or concerns that you have. As a bride, I had about a million things going on, so when I needed something, I always needed it to be addressed right away. Dhiraj understands how stressful weddings can be, and immediately put me at ease after answering all of my nagging questions.
Although every wedding has its own share of problems, I can say that my music was absolutely perfect. Dhiraj came to the wedding and did a fabulous job. My guests were amazed at my DJ’s talent and ability. He has an ear for music. In fact, I had several of my girl friends (all very picky about wedding stuff) ask me about his contact information so that they, too, could use him for their Big Days. He did a great job selecting music to please the crowd and made me happy by playing some of my favorites. The dance floor was packed from start to finish. I couldn’t have been happier with the music and was ecstatic about my choice in selecting a DJ.
While selecting a DJ is a personal choice, I hope that my experience influences your decision. You cannot go wrong with DJ D’Stylz. He was simply a pleasure to work with. Thanks, Dhiraj! Fantastic job!
