A Fresh Approach to a Traditional Event

I can sum up the Conquest Entertainment philosophy in what I call the 4 “F”‘s.   It’s part of what gives wedding “elegance with an edge”   You wedding is going to be ultra classy and super fun… just the way a modern event should be!


fun at a wedding

I want every guest at your wedding to hear music that they enjoy and feel like they are included in the festivities. From your godson to your grandmother, I make sure that we visit music over many decades so that no one feels left out. Getting everyone out of their seat and enjoying themselves mean playing the right music at the right time, in the right order.

It also means that we can incorporate some of your ideas and personality into the wedding as well. There’s plenty of ways we can surprise your guests with a fun First Dance or Father Daughter Dance



My motto is “Elegance with an Edge!”  I like to present a very modern and stylish atmosphere when I DJ, meaning that my equipment looks great and sounds awesome too.  It also means that unless you tell me otherwise, we leave some of the more corny songs on the shelf.

I like to bring a little “Downtown” flavor to the party, because I am an experienced House/Trance/Techno DJ, I can seamlessly blend all your favorite songs together into continuous mix… NO FADING OUT between songs like a sucker DJ would!

Keeping things moving isn’t an easy task… My goal with every event is to have it come off as if it had been rehearsed 100 times, even though in most cases there was no practice at all!  Transitioning from things like first dances to dinner to cake cutting should feel smooth, just like the transitions between songs!

I play songs in an order that makes sense, so that it feels like you’re riding on a metal roller-coaster, not the wooden one that jumps all over the place!



Every wedding is different and there are lots of ways to make your party one of a kind that no one forgets!  I LOVE helping to create a memory that will last a lifetime .  Do you want to do something super cool and different?   Let’s hear your ideas!

Being flexible also means being quick on your feet.  We have a plan and a timeline, but sometimes dresses need fixing and bouquets need to found.  No problem, I’m usually thinking several steps ahead in case we need to change direction so that everything keeps moving.

Superior Customer Service

If it’s one thing I believe in, it’s good customer service.  That mean promising little and delivering much.  It means quick responses to your phone calls, texts and emails.   It means doing whatever it takes to make sure that everything runs and operates smoothly on your wedding day!

I ~LOVE~ what we do!

I am the luckiest person in the world… I never have a bad day at work!   I really enjoy being a part of a happy couple’s special day.   I love seeing their ideas come to life and nothing is better than the energy of a room full of people cheering for a bride and groom as they enter the room during introductions.    There’s a lot of satisfaction in taking all that I’ve learned about a bride and groom over the months and putting that together in the form of music for them and their guests.   It’s audible art!

I’m a stickler for appearance and I can respect how much effort went into choosing a color theme and designing all of the centerpieces and other arrangements.   The DJ’s area should compliment your decor, not ruin it!   I use only the highest quality equipment that looks great and sounds even better.   I have designed my DJ rig with a few things in mind…. clean looks….great sound… and a backup plan!    I carry several computers and hard drives to make sure there isn’t 1 second of silence!


I believe in making thing easy for my clients.  I serve the entire Chicagoland area including Naperville, Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Elmhurst, BarringtonArlington Heights, St. Charles, Geneva, Aurora, and all of the Loop
