A look at Thunderhawk C.C. in Zion, IL

Thunderhawk C.C. is a beautiful venue in Zion, IL that Fun Times DJ.  They do a perfect job of staffing and serving excellent food.  The grounds are surrounded by one of Illinois' most beautiful (and challenging) golf courses.  We would easily recommend the location for events of 175 or fewer.

Here are some pictures inside the venue as well.

Less cliche songs for weddings...

Right now at Fun Times DJ we are sitting down with our June weddings to help couples make their wedding sound like their wedding. What we mean by that is we find out favorite, important songs and artists from each couple and work from there. Then we start to solidify song choices for cocktail music, cake, bouquet, etc.
this helps wedding to sound like any other. (in other words it is time to stop using songs like "Single Ladies") It

Here are a few of those choices that couples have made.

Bouquet: "Where Them Girls At" David Guetta
Garter: "Business Time" Flight of the Concordes, "Lady" Lenny Kravitz
Cake Cutting: "Honey Bee" Blake Shelton

Call us at Fun Times DJ today to schedule a consultation to help make your wedding a reflection of you!

Be safe when wedding planning.

The above heading popped up on my Gmail account.  Below is what happens when you click on it.

It is a clearinghouse for DJ's, photographers and videographers.  Translated they will sell your date to someone with speakers.  Forget about a personalized experience. 
Ask any bride, getting to meet your vendors in advance is one of the most important things you must do.

Shop safe!

Think of it this way...

What is the one thing at your wedding that no one can avoid?  Well, you can not have the chicken, you can show up late and miss the ceremony, you can not be in the limo, you can also avoid the wedding cake.  The DJ though, is unavoidable.  His/her speakers help to fill up the room, or empty it.  Whether it is grandma or your college friends a good DJ should get people dancing.  A great DJ did his homework in advance and makes everyone enjoy a day all about you.  A great DJ keeps reminding people why they are there with songs and references that are about you and your new spouse. 
Make your wedding sound like your wedding and everyone will know it was the best wedding they were ever at!  If this sounds like what you are looking for for your wedding and guests call 847-406-3535 for Fun Times DJ
