You make the calls with convenient and detailed online planning. To customize your event, first choose your type of celebration (Wedding Reception, Party or Bar/Bat Mitzvah). Then complete, save & submit each of your individual planning forms to us. Please submit the forms at least a month prior to your event. Your DJ will then review all the details with you either in person at our office or on the phone, whatever is better for you.

For individual song selections go to Music Database then to Optional Filters to look up different Music Categories on The Top 2,240 Songs of The 20th Century and The 21st Century Hits (2000-2012).

Each of our state-of-the-art sound systems are identical and company owned. The equipment is technically advanced so to produce clear, crisp, consistent and balanced sound without distortion. Each set up is clean and it is reliable. What you see is what you get.

 

The Windy City Hitman DJs mix on Apple Computers instead of with CDs.

We feature the Apple iMac G5, with a 17 inch screen, the most stable & user friendly computer around. It’s fully loaded with MegaSeg DJ mixing software, a superior application used by many radio stations nationally. Everything runs smoothly because the hardware and operating system are both designed by Apple, a synergy not possible with a typical PC.

 

The advantages of Digital over CD players are many:

  • Quicker ability to instantly locate & play specific songs titles from the entire music library.
  • An outstanding collection of titles, 35,000 plus selections, is brought to each event. We maintain an updated and diverse music library.
  • Lists of songs are conveniently categorized by type of music, title, artist, and year; great for playing musical sets, cocktail and dinner collections, theme parties, anniversaries, and reunions.

 

We have the ability to preprogram an entire celebration, from the cocktail music through the last dance as customized by our clients, while still allowing for the flexibility of the insertion of requests, skipping certain titles or just changing the order of songs during the party.

 

Songs have been edited; to eliminate unnecessary long build up and drop off times. We trimmed off the first 19 seconds of “I Will Survive from the original version. Guests need to be dancing, not waiting and standing around for a song to gain momentum. Features also include advanced sound effects & real-time beat mixing to seamlessly blend between songs without any dead air time during transitions.

There is now No chance for a CD to skip.

 

It provides a clean & sharp appearance. No CD cases or large CD decks.

Finally, digital technology frees up the DJ to be able to spend more time reading the crowd keeping the energy, excitement or romance going.

 

Ultimate Backup!


A second Apple Computer fully loaded with MegaSeg software & music is brought, to ensure confidence and peace of mind.

Unlike much of our competition we bring more than just an iPod or CD player as a backup.

For quality, all songs have been tested ahead of time. The collection has been carefully transferred from original CDs at a high bit rate, insuring the integrity & quality of each song. New titles are continually added from either original CDs or from iTunes to maintain top quality.

 

JBL Self Powered Speakers


Advanced DJ Setup featuring the new JBL G2 self powered EON series speaker systems.
New technically advanced, each individual speaker is driven by it’s own built-in bi-amped power for superior clear and crisp sound, balance of high and low frequency, flexibility & reliability. JBL is the audio industry’s most recognized and respected brand name producing equipment synonymous with precise naturally articulated sound in many of the world’s most prestigious arenas, concert halls and clubs.

 

Shure Cordless Microphones

Our cordless microphones let us go to where the action is and not always have it come to us. We can roam around your event all the while making the microphone accessible to our equipment.

 

We like to assist our clients with suggestions of popular songs. There is no better place to start than with the wonderful collections listed below. While the tunes listed are those most requested by our clients, they are but a small portion of our comprehensive music library. The lists are just the tip of the iceberg. If it is not listed, it does not mean that we don’t already have it or that we won’t get it. Remember we already own over 100,000 titles in our master collection! If you want it we have it or will get it.

Please use our music lists on our online planning form for assistance. You will be able to highlight and prioritize your favorites, add any songs not on the lists and/or note any of your do not play titles.

Testimonials

We encourage written feedback from our clients so that we can fairly evaluate our performances. This way we can say with confidence that we know that we are good and not have to guess that we are. Check it out.

* Wonderful! Everything was ready to go when we got to the banquet hall and Windy City Hitman (WCH) kept us dancing all night!! — Rikki & Nick Rodriguez

* Wonderful! Our D.J. was just the best! We felt at ease after speaking with him. The music was perfect all night, the dance floor was full all night and I barely left the dance floor myself. Words cannot describe how much fun everyone had! I have been told it was the best wedding many had ever been too and I believe that music plays a significant part of that! Thanks so much! WCH, you were great about returning phone calls promptly and thoroughly answering all my questions. Additionally by having numerous pages of possible songs really eased my mind-I liked that we could literally pick out songs we loved and wanted to hear. And your ideas such as the kissing game-so fun! — Tina & Michael McMorris

* Our WCH D.J. was very energetic, cooperative and kind. A pleasure to work with. Thank you so much, everyone keeps complimenting us on how wonderful WCH were. — Joann Talarieo Roth

When our daughter (Joann) told us that she wanted a D.J. at her reception we were a bit skeptical. The label D.J. brings to mind loud and obnoxious men who go around and make themselves a nuisance and play their music so loud you cannot talk to the person next to you. We were pleasantly surprised. WCH played a variety of music during dinner that was always in the background. Everyone had a great time dancing and the volume was never too loud. If you ever need a recommendation, do not hesitate to call. We had a great time! — Mrs. J. Talarieo

We have a lineup, second to none of mature and seasoned Disc Jockeys. Each being seasoned communicators, personable & college educated relate well to folks of different ages and backgrounds. All have a vast knowledge of diverse music and know how to read a crowd and keep them dancing the night away. They are not just playing through a music list, but actually know each individual song and where each song will fit into the big picture. Each is personal, punctual, neat and loves to entertain seeing that your guests leave with a smile on their face because they had a great time.

Each Of Our Professionals Fill The Role As:

  • Event Planner
  • Master Of Ceremonies
  • Disc Jockey
  • On-Site Coordinator
  • Technician

 

A Top Notch DJ will avoid the following 2 mistakes:

(1) to totally disappear from the mike, just playing the music without tasteful song introductions, announcements, instructions, interaction or enthusiasm. You might as well have hired a juke box or I Pod! and (2) to upstage the client by trying to want to be the focus of attention. Having an arrogant attitude or telling a joke between each and every song and in so doing interrupt the flow of the party and the music. This takes away the focus from you and your guests, the true stars of the show. You might ask who’s wedding is it anyway?

Over the years it has become evident that our clientele not only possesses very diversified tastes in music, but also in the tone and atmosphere the Disc Jockey creates.

 

Our Disc Jockeys can interact with your guests in one of two ways:

The Interactive Disc Jockey

Actively interacts with the guests from behind the booth and on the dance floor. Will wear and/or share the appropriate prop hats and inflatables to give a visual look to match the music. Physically lead a line dance, form a party train, conduct a limbo and/or hoola hoop contest.

The Professional Disc Jockey

Predominately stays behind the booth without prop hats. Tastefully introduces the music, makes introductions and personalize requests. Will encourage participation via the mike for all selected events and dances. Does not perform skits, jump or dance on tables and never use foul or inappropriate language. Both approaches are personal, tasteful and enthusiastic.

 

We are dedicated to providing our clients with the greatest music of all time, which produces enjoyment and fun for all by means of a fantastic collection of music (100,000+ titles from 1920 to Current Top 40), experienced and professional Disc Jockeys and top quality sound and lighting systems. We are in the entertainment business because of our love of music, and have no greater thrill and satisfaction than knowing that we have helped make another celebration special, fun, and memorable.  In the interest of maintaining excellence over the years The Windy City Hitman DJ’s take pride in receiving a written 10-point post event evaluation from each client.

The Big Difference:

The Hitman DJs are totally Professional! We have a lineup of experienced DJs who are college educated. Let The Hitmen create an atmosphere of enthusiasm combined with professionalism.

● The entire reception is planned with you in advance. We guide you through the process of planning your reception. We encourage each bride and groom to make choices when it comes to the music and events and we review each detail with you in advance of your reception. This insures that your reception will be special, unique and memorable to you.

● The introductions and announcements are performed with great effectiveness. Preparation and great mike presence gives your guests that attention getting first impression that this is going to be a great celebration.

● The center of attention is focused upon the bride and groom and not upon the DJ. The bride and groom are the stars of the show not the DJ. You won’t be embarrassed.

● The events are coordinated with the banquet facility and photographer to insure a smooth event. This gives you the peace of mind that the events are going to be done right and in a timely manner.

● The Hitmen know music of all types and from all eras. The greater music knowledge the DJ possesses the greater variety of music he can draw from.

● The Hitmen, with excellent communication skills, can relate to both the young and old. This gives all your guests the feeling that they are going to be included in the party and not left out.

● The Hitmen know how to read the crowd. Drawing from years of experience we will get the most dancing out of your guests. Knowing when to transition from one set of music to another and sensing the right time to play a certain song will help produce the most dancing and fun.

Remember the DJ Company you choose to perform at your reception will be representing you in front of your relatives and closest friends at one of the biggest events of your life.
