Thank you for doing the party for my family. I was in the wedding and was thankful that you told us what we were supposed to do during the ceremony. Everyone was able to hear the vows clearly with the use of the wireless microphone and sound system during the wedding ceremony. The reception was organized and the music was great the whole night. It was an enjoyable, fun day for all of us. Thank you again, Joey S.
Thank you for your contributions to my BIG DAY! After all the planning and meetings everything went GREAT! The music and use of the microphone for our wedding ceremony was appreciated and perfect for the day. My family loves to dance and you had all of us on the dance floor the entire night. Everyone danced and had a great time at the reception. There were many requests that you worked in while managing to work off of the music list we provided as well. You have done many functions for my family over the last 20 years. They have always been fun and unique, with everyone having a great time and enjoying themselves. Should anyone need Musical Entertainment and DJ Services, I am happy to recommend you. THANK YOU!!!! Julie & John R
My wife’s 50th birthday, a pretty big deal to me and my family. I hired your service for two reasons. I heard you were great with the dance music and very engaging with the karaoke aspect of the evening. I was very impressed that you were able to satisfy both the college aged kids and the older adult crowd that joined us for the evening’s celebration. You had people engaged, dancing and singing from 7 P.m. to midnight. I was happy that the different age groups participated and everyone stayed for the whole evening. My wife, Robin, celebrating her 50th birthday had a great time singing and catching up with old friends. Your service helped make the evening a success. Both the dance music and the karaoke went over great with people of all ages. I would be happy to recommend your service to others for parties of any type, not just birthday parties. Thank you again, Brad, for helping make my wife’s birthday a huge success. Dave K.
B-Rad...I don't think I got a chance to say thank you, so here it is. Thanks so much for providing DJ services for our daughter's wedding. We were so happy with how everything worked out. You had the place engaged, the kids dancing and overall made the experience perfect for our daughter and her husband. You kept the dance floor packed the entire evening; those kids had a blast! Hope you had some fun too. Thank you again for everything and I look forward to working with you again. Have a blessed day! Susan and Mike C.
We wanted to send a note of thanks for providing the music at our wedding on August 24th at the Route 66 Hotel. You came highly recommended and our expectations were high for the evening’s events. We were pleased with both the wedding ceremony and the reception. Your comments were very helpful in keeping the reception running in an organized fashion. We were impressed when you took the microphone around the room for the guests to “share their thoughts” on our big day. However, what was most pleasing was that you played the entire evening from 3 p.m. to midnight, as our guests stayed on the dance floor all night! Thank you, Brad, for helping make our day even more special. We can see why you’ve been in business for 35 years with the professionalism shown and skills keeping the guests engaged throughout the evening. We will gladly refer you for future events. John U.
We would like to thank you for your contribution to another successful pool party for the residents of Chatham Hills. We have used your services for several years to provide musical entertainment, including the karaoke system. The residents were pleased that you played their requests throughout the evening and the karaoke was a huge hit the night of the party. We had a diverse group of guests and singers for karaoke and you were able to provide music to suit everyone’s tastes and style. You’ve always done a great job providing musical entertainment for the pool party and we will continue to use Schroeder’s DJ Services for future events, including the 6th Annual Resident Pool Party. Thanks-Scott E.
I want to thank you for providing music and emcee services for my parent’s 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration. The intro song was timed perfectly and was exactly how we wanted it for the evening. The dinner went well with the songs played from 1969, the year they were married. The entire original wedding party was able to attend the party and the musical choices from that era kept them, and the other guests, on the dance floor throughout the evening. I had no reservations using Schroeder’s DJ Services for the anniversary celebration based on the professional services they provided for my wedding in August 2004. I will gladly refer Schroeder’s DJ Service to family and friends for future events, and to potential clients reading your reviews. John M
Thank you for providing a successful night for my daughter’s wedding reception held recently in Champaign, IL. I appreciate that you were willing to travel the distance for the event. You kept the reception events on schedule and flowing smoothly as the night progressed. The sound level of the music was perfect and your song choices kept the guests on the dance floor for the entire evening. Thank you, again, for a successful evening. Mary M.
We would like to thank you for the services provided for our daughter Amanda’s wedding and reception held at The Firefighter’s Club. We were pleased with the sound provided for the wedding ceremony and the music selections for the reception. The announcements were handled in a professional manner and kept the events on schedule. The guests indicated that you played their requests which helped keep the dance floor full throughout the evening. Thank you again for helping make the day memorable. We will gladly refer you to friends and family in the future. Nancy & Donnie DeHeve
We would like to thank you, again, for providing the music and entertainment for the party we recently had to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and my mother’s 100th Birthday Party. With your help and direction, the scheduled events were kept on the timeline laid out for the afternoon. We had many guests from out of town who appreciated the afternoon staying on schedule allowing them to keep their travel plans since the party was held on a holiday weekend. You worked well with the hypnotist hired for the event. His performance was a hit with the crowd and your interaction with him was great. The medal you gave to my husband and me for celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary was a nice personal touch as well, reflecting the interest you take in the clients and events you cover. We were pleased with your services and are happy to refer you to friends and family, as well as use your services again in the future. Karen & Terry
We were very pleased with the DJ services Brad Schroeder provided for our daughter's wedding reception on April 13, 2019. Since our daughter is in the Marine Corps and stationed in Hawaii, she and my son in law were married in a civil ceremony there and awaiting their leave to return home to celebrate with a reception here in Illinois. Brad was very respectful of everyone's needs as we finalized arrangements beforehand and his experience was evident at the party as he kept everything on track and not only helped to make it a very personal experience but also a very fun time. Everyone commented on what a great job he did. We would definitely recommend his services to others.
Schroeder’s DJ Service provided the musical entertainment and emcee services for the election night party celebrating my re-election as the Mayor of Springfield. The background music level was perfect for the celebration, allowing for conversations as the election results came in throughout the evening. The announcements to keep the crowd updated on the results as the evening progressed were helpful as well. Thank you for providing your wireless microphone, ensuring the crowd could hear my victory speech. After my speech, the celebration began with many friends, supporters, and family members dancing to the music selections you chose and the song requests you played. Thank you for the services provided on election night.
Brad recently provided entertainment for our Jr. High dance this year as well as last year. He is great interacting with the students, plays appropriate and fun music as well as announced the games we played. Thanks again, Brad, the kids had a great time!
Brad did a fantastic job at our wedding everyone had a great time. Brad was friendly and very professional and accommodating to all of our requests. We will use his services in the future and would definitely recommend him to our friends and family.
I hired Schroeder’s DJ Service to provide music for the annual HOPE’S Cowboy Christmas Event. After his performance at my event, I recommended his services for the holiday military event to be held at the same venue the following day. He provided music and emcee services for that event as well. Brad arrived appropriately dressed for the rustic atmosphere each day and promptly set up to ensure the background music was playing prior to the arrival of the guests. The selection of music Brad played for each event was suitable to the theme keeping the guests interested in the activities and encouraging them to stay for the duration of both of the events. There were several requests for songs throughout the day and Brad gladly accommodated the requests working them into planned playlist. I have worked with Schroeder’s DJ Service, and Brad specifically, for several events over many years and am happy to recommend his services for people in need of event entertainment.
I hired Brad Schroeder to provide music and entertainment, including karaoke, for my wife’s 40th Birthday Party. The musical bar was set high because my wife used to sing in a band and Brad hit the mark with the musical selections he played. The choices were upbeat and fun, with lots of 80’s rock which appealed to the guests. Brad was accommodating of the song requests he received from the guests, as well, keeping them involved in the festivities. The volume of the music was just right allowing for conversations among those not on the dance floor. Once the karaoke competition started, numerous guests jumped in to participate in the singing. The karaoke was such a hit with the guests that we asked Brad to extend his play time for a couple hours, which he gladly did. All of the guests enjoyed the karaoke and Brad even jumped in to sing a few songs, although he was excluded from the competition. Yes, we even awarded a karaoke champion trophy at the end of the evening. The birthday party was a success with all of the guests having a great time. I recommend that if you are considering having DJ Services for a birthday party, or any party for that matter, that you make Schroeder’s DJ Service your choice. We all enjoyed the evening and appreciate Brad’s contribution to make the party memorable.
Brad Schroeder was the DJ for our wedding in November 2018, held at the Route 66 Hotel in Springfield. Brad provided his services for both our wedding and the reception which were held at the same venue. Prior to the date of our wedding, we met with Brad several times to review musical choices and the other pertinent details related to the ceremony and reception to ensure everything would run smoothly, nothing would be overlooked and there would be no surprises the day of the event. The wedding ceremony was small and intimate, which was important to us and the highlight of the day. Brad was spot on with the music played during the ceremony and we were very pleased with the selections he chose based on our tastes shared during our meetings. Brad transitioned to the area set up for the reception while we were having pictures taken. During that time, he kept the guests entertained with background music and general update announcements. He was very conscientious of keeping the event on schedule with the timing of the necessary announcements related to dinner, cutting the cake and the various dances. The reception room was large and there were no problems with hearing him speak during any of the announcements or the transitions between songs played throughout the evening. In addition to the songs we wanted Brad to play during the reception, he took requests from the guests. The dance floor lit up with the flashing lights he provided and the up-lights placed around the room were a nice addition. Our wedding ceremony and reception were enjoyable and we are more than happy to recommend Brad and Schroeder’s DJ Service for future events of any kind. Kara & Marty
I recently held an employee appreciation party at a local banquet hall. I chose Schroeder’s DJ Service to provide entertainment for the evening as Brad had been the DJ for my wedding several years ago and I was familiar with his professionalism and enthusiasm when providing entertainment for events. I wanted a fun, interactive evening for my employees and Brad suggested that karaoke in the mix would do the trick. Brad was helpful with the dinner announcements, as well as, keeping the planned activities on schedule. We had several baking contests throughout the night and Brad announced and congratulated the winners with flair. For karaoke, we had around 10 singers and everyone had fun whether they were participating or watching from the sidelines. Brad brought a lighting system and up-lights for the room which added to the party atmosphere. Brad and his DJ Service were prompt, well dressed, and provided fantastic emcee services for the evening. This is the second time I’ve used Brad’s services and will do so again for future events. I gladly recommend Schroeder’s DJ Services for any event you may be planning.
Schroeder’s DJ Service provided the music for our Halloween parties for both 2017 and 2018 at our local church. We were very specific in the type of music and atmosphere we wanted for our holiday party. Brad did a nice job of providing the music, entertainment and announcements throughout the evening. The volume of music was perfect for the kids, but not too loud for the adults, at the church gathering. We, as a church group, are happy to recommend Brad and his DJ Service to any person or group for any events they are planning. Angela Harris
We can’t thank you enough for the DJ services you provided for our wedding and reception held at Longbridge. You were highly recommended by family and friends that have used your services in the past. We were very pleased with your coordination of the events for the ceremony held outside in the afternoon and the evening reception held in the tent at the venue. Thankfully, even with the extreme heat, we were able to enjoy all aspects of our big day and are glad that everything went without a hitch. The sound level was spot on during the ceremony for the musical selections, the Pastor’s words, and the exchange of vows. The guests were able to hear everything clearly and concisely with the equipment provided. Once we moved inside for the reception, your professionalism was evident in the coordination of events. You arranged the songs provided from our list for the background music in a harmonious order for smooth transition from one song to the next. The cake cutting and various dance combinations went as planned and we were impressed with the music selection you prepared. As the evening progressed, the remaining guests were primarily our friends, so it was a younger crowd and you adapted the music to the group, which was appreciated. The lighting effects looked great and provided an extra element of fun. The last two hours the dance floor was packed and you kept the guests engaged with your banter. We appreciate that you played our guests requests while staying true to our song preferences as well. Thank you for your efforts coordinating the music and events for our wedding. You definitely had an impact on the success of the day’s events. Thank You-Ryan & Cassie Dudley
I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job you did for the family pool party this month. I knew when I referred them to you that they would be making a great choice. My wife loved singing the karaoke!! Everyone enjoyed the music and you guys really added to the experience...Thanks for making my reference a credible one. I won't hesitate to refer you in the future!!
Thank you for providing a great party atmosphere for my son Simon’s 1st Birthday Party. He was all smiles throughout the entire party. The kids music chosen to be played fit in great with our party theme and decorations, with the most important song being ‘Old Macdonald’, Simon’s favorite! I was impressed with the selection of children’s music you had available, as I can’t imagine you have many requests for children’s music. The volume was just right as the guests were able to have a conversation while the music played. You kept everyone entertained throughout the party and the ‘Happy Birthday’ sing along was awesome. We thank you again for doing a great job and providing a fun party atmosphere for our family and friends celebrating Simon’s 1st Birthday
Thank you for bringing the music for our event. We had a successful raffle and 50/50 drawing. My guests said their music requests were played during the night. We appreciated the use of mics as there were many announcements made through the evening. Thank you for successful event and we will keep you in mind for the future.
We connected to Brad Schroeder’s Service through a random internet search – What a find! We needed a quality DJ for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Brad responded within 24 hours to answer questions and provide dates of availability. He was very open about his contract and adhered to what we’d agreed upon – NO surprises. Prior to the event he provided music lists to trigger our thoughts on types of music and artists that we might want to include. He also wanted to know the program for the evening so he could match the types and “mood” of the music appropriately. And just prior to the event, he wanted to meet us to build the relationship for a successful event. In the course of that meeting it was also apparent that Brad not only knew his music but had deep knowledge of the artists and the trivia surrounding the music eras. Moreover, he had our values and wanted to keep it “clean.” These were early clues that we’d made the right choice with Brad. The night of the event, Brad was set up and ready to go when the first guest arrived. And he kept the music with the right “tone” and also helped keep us on track and on time. When the formal portion of the program was completed, Brad really shined. He kept the energy level up, engaged our guests in dancing, sing-a-longs, trivia and funny commentary. Our guests loved him. You only get one shot at a 50th anniversary, and Brad definitely helped make ours a rousing success. We heartily endorse Brad Schroeder’s DJ Service for your special occasion.
I consider the graduation party a success for my daughter! You made all the announcements considering the food and cake and let everyone know about the food status during the night. Also, I was told of the requests you played during the night and some country music for my daughter. You played great music and we appreciated the volume level. The music was at a level easy to enjoy but you were still able to talk over it during the evening and while she was getting pictures with all her guests. Thank you
I wanted to let you know we were happy with services provided for St. Agnes dance held on May 11th. You played all of the appropriate music for the kids and were still able to keep them happy. Brad kept the kids well engaged by playing different kinds. We appreciate that as we are a Catholic School. We have used you many times over the years and will continue to use you going further in the future.
DJ Brad Schroeder was referred to me by my dear friend Yolanda. He was everything we hoped for. Brad was on time, friendly, and personable. He got his equipment set up quickly and immediately started playing nice background music. The up-lights that were set up around the room created a very soft lighting environment for the wedding and reception. His jovial banter during the “Shoe Game” was so funny and enjoyable to all. He made all announcements nicely and was a big help keeping the guests busy and entertained. He had a great lighting system set up during the dancing and was very professional throughout it all. Brad was dressed in a nice suit and we would certainly recommend him to others for their DJ needs. Thank you, Brad Schroeder, you made our grandson’s wedding so much better.
We wanted to thank you again for providing the music ad lighting for the 2018 Kincaid Prom. The kids enjoyed the lighting, and up-lighting provided when the sun went down. Also the many requests taken, including songs of the 80’s, which surprised many of us. Thank you.
Thank you for playing music and bringing lights for my wedding reception held in April. I did enjoy you bringing purple up-lights which added greatly to my event. My guests said you played all of their requests during the evening. Though we did not have a large crowd we did have dancers all night. I would have no problem recommending Brad to any of my friends and family needing a dj for their event.
We would like to thank Brad Schroeder for playing music for our per-engagement party. We are country music fans and we presented Brad with a list of fifty songs for our party. He was great in playing our songs and also taking many requests from our friends throughout the night. The music was at a nice volume so we could talk during the night. He also played top forty for our younger guests. We will be referring in the future Brad to our friends and family. He will also be doing the music for our wedding reception.
I was pleased with your DJ services provided for my friends 40th and 50th birthday parties held in Edinburg. The karaoke was fun and the kids and parents really enjoyed the singing. The up-lights helped the look of the newly renovated room. Requests were taken for both music and karaoke and the dance floor was packed for the last hour with all the 80’s favorites! The music level and lights were great and we appreciate your help with the party. Thanks again.
I wanted to thank you again for providing music for my wife, Jacki’s, 40th birthday held at the local VFW. She’s a big fan of 80’s music and she was very pleased that you played the music off our lists and 80’s power ballads during dinner. We were both very surprised about the success of the karaoke during the night. We had many singers that sang many different kinds of music. We were expecting just a few singers but we had singers all during the night including our son which meant a lot to both of us. You also provided music for my college graduation party many years ago. I was pleased with both events and will refer you in the future to other clients.
I’m writing you this note thanking you for services provided on my 40th birthday. I was referred to you by my friend Erin and was very happy with your price quote and services that evening. I thought the up-lighting look very good in the room in the motorboat club. I was pleased that you played off my request list and also the requests of my friends throughout the evening. I appreciate you also making announcements for the photo booth, taking requests, and the appetizers that were available throughout the evening. I will keep you in mind for any music needs in the future.
Thank you for providing the music for my wedding several years ago held in Waggnor. Things went great for my reception and I also wanted you to be the DJ for my son, Joey’s wedding reception held on October 28th. Thank you most of all for keeping everything in an organized manner and for the announcements made during the evening. All the guests had fun with the cake cutting and your announcements about the cake cutting. There was also big groups for the bouquet and garter toss during the night and the young people enjoyed your interactions. The special dances were all perfect and I appreciated your suggestion of the “George Straight” for the mother/son dance. Everyone said you played their requests during the night and the dance floor was full during the night. Thank you for your DJ work at my reception and also my son’s reception.
Thank you for providing the music and lights for my niece, Abbey on her wedding day. The purple up-lights matched up well with the rest of the banquet hall. Also, I noticed you played off Abby’s request list, and took requests as the guests walked up to you during the night. I know my kids had a great time doing the dance to “Thriller” during the night. The wedding reception was organized and went very well. I am happy to refer you when I can in the future.
Thank you for providing the music and organization for my wedding and reception held at The Roots in Petersburg. I was happy that things went smoothly during the ceremony which we moved inside at the last minute. Everyone was able to hear the announcements even in the back room which helps. The bouquet and garter toss went well and I appreciate the way that you interacted with the crowd. Also I heard that you took and played many requests from my friends. Also thank you for playing my last minute request, it was appreciated. Things went well and I’d be happy to let my friends know about you in the future.
Thank you for providing the music for my wedding and reception held at Sherman A/C on September 16th. I was relieved that you could do the music for the wedding after the piano player was not able to be there that day. The announcements at the reception were made in the right order and clear to hear on the microphone. The requests were played and the music was just right and the music volume was perfect and the lights were appreciated. Thank you from a happy customer.
I was impressed with your services provided for my sisters reception held at The Roots in Petersburg. The wedding ceremony went great and everyone heard the vows. You took all the requests and the dance floor was packed. I look forward to you doing my wedding reception next July. I would be happy to suggest you in the future.
We wanted to thank you for services provided for our wedding ceremony and reception held at the Blue Ridge Club on September 2nd. The view was beautiful with the lake in the background. We were happy that you provided the sound and microphones outside for the wedding. Everyone was able to hear the vows and minister during the ceremony. Thanks for taking care of all the announcements and toasts as well as updates on dinner during the reception. The music was important to John and we were happy with the 80’s music you were able to dance throughout the night. We were very happy with our wedding and reception and you were a big part. Thank you!
The DJ for your wedding reception has a lot of power to make or break the whole reception. The DJ sets the tone for everyone attending, and that is why Brad was a great pick for us. Brad met with us twice to make sure that he knew exactly what our wants were before the wedding. The day of the wedding, Brad showed up and set up in a very timely manner, and he was even able to accommodate a last minute request for a live music performance. Throughout the entire reception Brad played the music that we had chosen and songs that our guests requested. He was well spoken on the microphone and helped everything run very smoothly. He also dressed the part, wearing a suit for the occasion. The song selection and order were nothing short of perfect. Once we invited people to begin dancing, the floor was never empty. Brad kept the party going into the night! We would recommend him to anyone who wants a reliable, well mannered, and experienced DJ for their wedding!
Thank you to Schroeder’s DJ Service for providing music and entertainment for Lanphier football team.

I realize you played off their request lists and still had time to play requests during the night. We had many dancers that night and you did a nice job of picking out the music during the evening. Thanks also for help coordinating the announcements for the reception and the fireworks display later that night. Your prices were affordable, and I am happy to refer you in the future.
We wanted to thank Brad Schroeder for being our DJ on June 17th at The Farm in Petersburg. He supplied the sound system for both the ceremony and wedding reception.

Brad was the DJ for my husband’s military ball held on March 18th at the Wyndman Hotel for the Local 634 Bravo Unit. The background music was at a nice level so everyone could talk to each other. His up-lighting colors were red and blue in color which was a nice touch for a military event. He played appropriate music for the group and at a nice volume level. Years earlier Brad was the DJ for my wedding and reception held in Springfield. He was very good at taking requests through the night. He also brought a great light show and we had many people on the dance floor through the evening. Should you need a DJ for any event I would suggest using Schroeder’s DJ Service.
I recently attended a wedding ceremony and reception where Brad Schroeder was the DJ for both events. He took care of all of the announcements for both the wedding and the reception. Brad was very clear on the microphone for the announcements throughout the evening. The reception was casual and held in a nice tent with a heater. Even though it was quite chilly Brad was able to get the crowd going and get them on the dance floor. He took many requests and everyone very much enjoyed the music. I am a co-worker of the groom and he and his family were very pleased with the music selection and the announcements made by Brad. The music was just right, not too loud and great to dance to. A great time was had by all on such a chilly evening.

Should you need a DJ, we would highly suggest you choose Schroeder’s DJ Service as your entertainment choice for your evening.

He even stayed an hour later than we initially planned because everyone wanted to keep dancing! I got many compliments from friends and family members about how great our DJ was. I HIGHLY recommend Schroeder's DJ Service! :) - Liz Foster, Springfield IL

Brad Schroeder's DJ Service is absolutely top notch! I am glad we chose his service for our wedding reception.

There were times when some people thought they were ready to go home for the night but just had to hear what Brad would play next and stayed much, much longer. It is not too often I see many different generations dancing, singing, and having fun together at a reception. I couldn't imagine having anyone else as our DJ. Our reception was absolutely perfect!

Brad personally DJ'd our wedding and I have nothing but rave reviews for him. He has a well organized way of gathering song information and preferences. he was easy to contact and update information. His price(s) are reasonable and competitive. When I realized the venue was not providing the projector for the video/slideshow, I panicked. Brad offered his and provided it within 15 minutes! His assistant had to drive to retrieve it. Because it was emergently needed and there were other venue issues, he generously offered this without additional charge. The sound system worked well, he had every song requested and did a fantastic job transitioning from one thing to the next (introductions, toasts, dances, garter/bouquet...etc). Without hesitation, I recommend him and his services for a wedding or any event!
Brad did a great job as dj for our elementary "sock hop" dance. His music was age appropriate and he really "clicked" with our kids. We would highly recommend him for any event!

... And now a word from the owner,I have owned Schroeder's DJ service for 29 years. We were recently voted best DJ service by the local newspaper the State Journal Register. I would like to remind you that my job is unique in comparison to other jobs. We provide a service where things can be influenced by external factors such as, alcohol consumption, family issues and differences in musical taste. I would ask that you keep this in mind when you are reading any review of a DJ service. I am not a one man operation and have different rate packages for myself and the staff of my service. We always meet with the couples at least twice before the big day. We look forward to being your service provider for all your music needs.
