We service all of Illinois and all the surrounding states! We’re based in Woodstock, IL, but are available to travel throughout Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, etc. If there will be a travel fee involved, due to the distance, we’ll discuss that with you prior to sending the contract.

Our DJs arrive up to an hour prior to contract start time, unless otherwise specified. If MIM is providing your Ceremony Music please be sure to have the DJ’s official contract start time be approximately 30 minutes prior to your actual Ceremony Start Time. This will allow the DJ to be se up, dressed and playing music while your guests are being seated. We can then transition immediately into the Ceremony Music when appropriate.

We can play any music you like; Classical, Disco, Big Band, Rock n Roll, Latin, Old School, Retro 80’s, and of course, the most current.

Depending on the type of event, you can safely guess that about 15 songs per hour of open dancing can be played.

We will be happy to try to download (via iTunes) any songs you request that we don’t have. A fee of $5.00 per song will be charged to the client. If you do choose to download music and burn it to a CD, as stated previously, please be sure it’s in .wav format.
