The ORIGINAL Mr. DJ



Chicago, IL 60660
The ORIGINAL Mr. DJ, Chicago — The money dance, dollar dance, or apron dance is an event at some wedding receptions in various cultures. During a money dance, male guests pay to dance briefly with the bride, and sometimes female guests pay to dance with the groom. The custom originated in Poland in the early 1900's in immigrant neighborhoods. 

Sometimes guests are told that the money will be used for the bride and groom's honeymoon or to give them a little extra cash with which to set up housekeeping. Typically these dances are done as a slow dance; however the Original Mr. DJ from time to time has changed this to a faster dance in order to speed up the time frame from dancing with nearly everyone in the room and going through numerous slow dance songs and narrowed it down to one. Again, it’s your wedding and every wedding has its own special flavor and needs.  http://theoriginalmrdj.com/Dollar_Dance.html

"Senn Friends Forever - Brenda Harris", rocknron from Evanston, IL.
We have often used the DJ services for our alumni events and even fund raisers as well for our school, but we never knew just how great the Original Mr. DJ was until we used them for a wedding for our daughter. Not only are they totally interactive, but they also have done the ceremony music as well just plainly being FUN all night long. They're professional, courteous and works well with the host/bride/groom, etc. Thumbs up and Kudos Mr. DJ :)
