  • Cage and Aquarium were professional and personal the whole process of planning our wedding. We opted to get to know DJ's at their Date Night and had a blast listening to the different styles. Choosing a DJ that matched our style was easy and we had a great time chatting with Michael about who we were and what music we liked. Our wedding could not have gone smoother from audio needs to music, everything was done by Michael. Our guests spent the whole night dancing and singing along which meant a lot to us! Could not recommend this company or Michael more!

  • We could not be happier with our wedding photos by Cage + Aquarium. The process was simple, our photographer (Eva Ho) easy to work with, and the photos turned out wonderfully. Beautiful portraits and so many candid shots that captured perfectly the joy of our ceremony and reception.

  • From the beginning, Cage and Aquarium was great to work with. They respond to messages so quickly and are very thorough with how the process works. I love that they host a DJ showcase. EVERY DJ SHOULD DO THIS! We are thrilled to be working with Lexi as our DJ and can't wait for the big day!

  • Michael is hands down the best DJ - definitely worth requesting him to be your DJ for your wedding. Cage and Aquarium were beyond easy to work with, from the initial quote, to their online portal/system, ways to select/rank songs, etc. We also love that you meet your DJ in person leading up to your wedding - this simply helped ensure everything felt streamlined and all set for our wedding day. C + A were NEVER pushy, and we didn't feel they reflected the "ugly" grind of the wedding industry, which we were desperately avoiding during our wedding planning in Chicago. We LOVE they are members of the Green Wedding Alliance - our goal was to have as many vendors that were members as possible to be mindful of the environment, being sustainable and "green." Michael listened to ALL of our requests. Food, booze, and music were our legit top three priorities for our wedding, and Michael met the high bar we expected from him, as everyone raves about him. We noticed our song requests during cockta... Read more

  • Tyler was professional, thoughtful, skilled and generous from the moment we first emailed/spoke. No matter what, he made us feel like a top priority at all times. Tyler was a joy to have at our wedding - and also to speak with during our few interviews! His knowledge is vast, and deep, and his conversations about our event and music were always engaging. He was consistently professional, made us feel special and heard, was thoughtfully honest and we trusted him from the get go. At our actual event, Tyler went above and beyond - seriously. My wedding did not feel like everyone else's wedding. My wedding felt as unique and curated as I had always dreamed, specifically at the skilled hands of Tyler. We are eternally grateful. We will look for excuses to hire them in the future!

  • Pedro was great! The guests really had a great time. He even found some more esoteric songs we wanted, so I was really pleased. Definitely recommend. :)

  • In the Venn diagram that is my wife and my musical taste, there is virtually no overlap. With that in mind, we gave Michael the impossible task of DJing our wedding. And he did an amazing job. My wife is very particular about cuts/transitions, and other things i never even notice and she was very impressed by his technical abilities. Over several meetings he took great care to learn about us as a couple and our personalities. He asked questions that got us thinking about the mood and atmosphere we wanted to create, and on the day of the wedding he did a great job reading the room. Michael is passionate about his work and he truly cares about putting on a performance that will make your wedding day special. We are very grateful for his thoughtfulness, his attentiveness and his warm and caring personality. Michael did an exceptional job at our wedding and many guests complimented us on the music and DJ. He was a essential part of our wedding day and we highly recommend his servi... Read more

  • Put your cheesy DJs fears to rest! Cage and Aquarium has an amazing crew, and they put together "Date Nights" where you can go listen to their DJs spin to get a feeling for who would be the best fit for your wedding. We were paired with Adam, and we couldn't have been happier! He was so professional and did an amazing job with music all night. He did our ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and dance floor music. He did a great job helping us find the right music for our ceremony processional and looping it all seamlessly to account for timing. He also kept the dance floor packed and moving! He seemed to know the exact right music to play to keep people partying all night. Can't recommend them enough, and Adam was the perfect DJ for our wedding!

  • Even despite our complex ceremony and long list of requests, Daniel Demchuk from C&A did a fantastic job at our wedding. We told him we wanted it to be a party and he certainly did a great job making it just that. Everyone we worked with at C&A was friendly and willing to help make our wedding day exactly what we wanted it to be. We would definitely recommend C&A and Daniel to anyone planning an event or wedding.

  • Cage and Aquarium were a dream to work with. They made the whole process so simple, and were so on top of it, I never once had to worry about them. Our dance floor was packed all night, and everyone kept telling us how amazing our DJ was and how well the evening flowed. Truly thankful we were recommended to them. DJ Ed in particular is the best, and I can't thank him enough for his attention to detail, and willingness to collaborate.

  • Everything was absolutely PERFECT!!!!! The three things we asked for were great music, great food, and for everyone to be dancing. DJ Stack killed it. You gave us everything we asked for and more and kept the dance for lit. Our guests could not stop talking about how amazing the music was. Highly recommend DJ Stack and Cafe and Aquarium for all your music needs! The night was perfect!

  • We loved how our DJ kept everyone out on the dance floor all night long. He listened to us regarding what songs/type of music we did and didn’t want to hear. Everyone we came into contact with at cage and aquarium was super helpful and professional. Our DJ knew how to read the room to make sure everyone was dancing all night. We had so much fun at our reception and that is thanks to our DJ! We would definitely recommend Cage and Aquarium and DJ Mykol to everyone!

  • We had DJ Drew as our wedding DJ and he was AMAZING! He kept the party going all night and made sure to play all our favorites (some of which were admittedly outside the usual wedding music choices). I also had a very specific request for my processional music, and he handled it beautifully. We're so glad we chose Cage + Aquarium for our wedding.
