“I am now with the girl of my dreams… and the DJ of my dreams” – What a night it was with Amanda and Randy! Marz and the Charizma crew headed out armed with a custom funky mix and a trunk full of LED uplights and simply transformed the room into a full blown party. The bride, groom and guests were thrilled beyond belief and danced the night away until someone had to kick them out! Like every bride before the big day, Amanda had a million things going through her mind, and it was our true pleasure to put her at ease so all she had to do was sit back and enjoy the celebration. Like we tell all of our couples – Our job is to make it feel like you’re a guest at your own event. We don’t want you worrying about ANYTHING other than having the time of your life. Then after its all said and done, you are able to look back and say “wow, that wedding was spectacular” – spontaneous perfection… it’s what we do. Make sure you take some advice from Amanda and Randy and give us a call – we’d be delighted to be part of your special day, and we think you’d feel the same about us. We know you always have a choice when it comes to entertainment, and we thank you deeply for choosing Charizma!
Anybody who attends a wedding, whether its the guests, wedding party, catering staff, photographer, DJ… they all hope for one thing: fun. Christine and Ryan’s wedding definitely didn’t lack anything in that category!
When Marz headed out to Metropolis Ballroom in Arlington Heights to set up, he was really surprised by how spacious and beautiful the room was. That evening, Charizma provided a photo booth and DJ entertainment to maximize the fun, and the guests weren’t disappointed – all night everyone was up on their feet with huge smiles on their faces.
As you’ll see in the video, beautiful bride Christine started off the evening wearing her gorgeous, full length wedding dress, then after all the ‘traditional’ wedding fair, she changed into a little white party dress so she could move a little more on the dance floor! Typically, you won’t see this happening at a wedding, but we’ve seen it happening more and more this year especially with younger couples who really want to make sure they have a good time and nobody is stepping on (and possibly destroying) the beautiful traditional ceremony dress.
We know you have a choice when it comes to entertainment, and as always, we thank you for taking the time to check us out online and read the blog! If you’re considering booking entertainment for your next event – look no further – you’ve got Charizma.

Molly and Jeremy had to make a million and one decisions before they said “I do” – Where should the reception be? What kind of food should we serve? What colors? What sights? What sounds? Luckily for us, the LAST thing they had to worry about was the entertainment for the evening. Arianna rocked out at Belvedere Banquets in Elk Grove Illinois for a beautiful night to remember. The crowd was electric and full of energy, and deserved nothing but the best Charizma has to offer. The room was warm and beautiful, the guests were smiling and happy, and most importantly, Molly and Jeremy were nothing short of blown away.
If you’re planning on getting married, or know someone who is, make sure to suggest Belvedere Banquets as a party destination, and of course, Charizma as the entertainment! (only if you want a fantastic party, of course)
We know you always have a choice when it comes to entertainment, and reading blogs, so we thank you from the bottom of our collective hearts for choosing Charizma! We promise you won’t be disappointed.
Arianna and the Charizma crew headed out to Micky Finn’s to rock a super sports party and had a blast! The cool thing about doing sports themed parties is it allows all your guests to really rep their team with pride (whether its a Chicago team or not!) Of course, the room was filled with Blackhawks and Bulls jerseys – it was quite a site to see! The Charizma crew was decked out in referee jerseys to add that little spice of flair to the vibe of the party.
If you’re looking for a fun, cool and unique place to have your party you should definitely consider Micky Finn’s – its really a perfect blend of both adult and kid vibes and has a little something for everyone. Check out the space here!

One of the best parts about Charizma Entertainment is the people we connect with and the events that we are hired to do for them. When I saw Jodie at the Windy City Wedding Show it was a reunion filled with hugs and smiles. Jodie and I met years before as she hired mr to emcee her son’s Bar Mitzvah in 1999. Now, she and her fiancé Guy where looking for DJ entertainment that fit their style and personality. Once we reconnection at the wedding show and she realized that I also do many weddings, it was a natural fit! The wedding and reception was held at the famed Signature Room in Chicago. Located atop the John Hancock Center, The Signature Room at the 95th® offers diners exquisite food, superb service, and a dazzling skyline view. The elegant wood designs and art deco interior create an inviting and intimate atmosphere, while the floor-to-ceiling windows exhibit the stunning Chicago skyline and 360 degree views of the entire city. With this amazing view and atmosphere we chose to illuminate the room with wireless LED lighting to give the room a pop of color and to add the element of fun for dancing later in the evening. The ceremony was performed by a close friend of Jodie & Guy’s with the musical backdrop of a cellist and singer. The cocktail reception was held in the same room so we were ready to go with the music format of the rat pack, Motown and 70’s. As we moved into dinner Jodie wanted to ensure that the mood was set for everyone to dance when dinner was done, so our transition started half way through dinner with some selections that got her friends and family singing and bouncing around in their seats. Jodie and Guy opened the dancing with their first dance “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne – love that song! From there: Earth Wind and Fire, AC/DC, Robin Thicke and the Cha Cha slide the evening progressed flawlessly. And I had the honor of dancing with Jodie several times throughout the evening, and to see the smile on her face made me even happier to know that we had accomplished our goal for the evening. At the end of the reception I took a moment before loading out my equipment to look at my city, Lake Shore Drive, and this night was beautiful.
