Special Occasion Events (Rick and DJ Magic) made our wedding reception a total blast! Rick is super organized and met with us ahead of time to get the timeline and song list finalized, traveled to the venue to check it our ahead of time, and seamlessly MC'd the reception! DJ Magic really impressed us with his mixing skills! We incorporated a lot of music from Africa and he masterfully mixed with salsa, bachata, jazz and top 40 hits - even after receiving the music only 2 weeks ahead of the event! They even kept us up to date on the Cubs playoffs score (as requested) throughout the night! My family was so impressed with how easy and smoothly everything happened - and I give all the credit to the wonderful team Rico, his DJ and the reception site staff at Osteria Via Stato for doing a spectacular job! Thank you for giving us a reception our families will remember with smiles and warm hearts for a lifetime.

I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to Rick and his team of pros who helped make my daughters wedding perfect. I found Rick here on Thumbtack, stuck up a dialogue on what our needs were. He then came out to our house to continue the conversation and we found him energetic, knowledgeable on all current and older music, gentlemannly and was obviously a pro in all respects. We ended up hiring him not only as our DJ (he brought a second DJ pro along) but also hired a photo booth (what a blast with tons of props) from him and 2 lovely ladies for party help from him! Rick and his colleague DJ not only kept the dance floor packed but also got down on the floor to lead the line dancing, revved up the guests for the out of the box introductions (think Star Wars theme music and a light saber tunnel) and delivered more than we could even begin to ask for. 0n a scale of 1 to 10 we give Rick and his crew a 20

Rick is the bomb dot com.

My husband and I live in Los Angeles but were planning for a Chicago wedding. We Skyped with Rick a few times and were able to nail down a schedule of events for our wedding, and passed along a playlist.

Our wedding went as smoothly as possible with Rick MC'ing - he kept the energy HIGH. Everyone had a blast on the dance floor - my guests could not stop raving about our reception the next day :-)

Hilariously, the day of our wedding it turned out Rick was my mom's salsa instructor (they recognized each other prior to the ceremony). So, if you want to work with a super nice guy to plan a fun event - GET RICK!

We were so happy with Rico and our DJ at our wedding this June! He is a kind, fun, big-hearted guy with lots of energy. He made our day better with his love for his work, great music, and help keeping our timeline on track!
