  • Could not be more happier with the DJ experience that Buster and Extreme DJ's and Lighting provided for our wedding! What Buster does to coordinate your timeline so that the actual wedding day flows seamlessly was exactly what we were looking for. The best part of planning was when we were in agreement that the Chicken Dance or Cha Cha Slide was 100% DO NOT PLAY for our wedding before we even booked him. Then when it came to the day of Buster did an amazing job using songs from our preferred play list but also hits that kept the dance floor moving. We knew our wedding party was a fun group but the DJ played a major part in keeping the dance floor going strong until 11PM on a Sunday and then even did an encore song right at 11! Book Extreme DJ's and lighting and you will not be disappointed. We were so happy with their assistance!

  • Buster made our wedding go very smoothly and put us at ease on our whole day. He knows all your details, can help you put your timeline together and keep you on time! He met with all the vendors and filled any gap's as far as a wedding planner goes. He has a ton of great ideas, is tech-savvy and we are so happy we chose him for our DJ.

  • Buster was so helpful to us throughout the whole process of planning our wedding and I am talking beyond just the music aspect. He has a ton of experience and was so knowledgeable at helping us to talk through timeline, room set up, and flow of the evening. Buster completely delivered the night of the wedding and everyone including myself had a blast dancing all night long (Literally)! I also recommend utilizing him for up lighting as well, that turned the party up a notch at the end of the night but was also beautiful in our room earlier in the evening. I HIGHLY recommend using Extreme DJ's and Lighting. They are reliable, responsive, and GOOD at what they do!

  • Buster was a thrill to work with from the planning stages all the way through the ceremony and reception! He is extremely knowledgeable and professional and was a great help with keeping us on schedule throughout the night. The gorgeous up-lighting he provided was an added benefit. Could not recommend him more for your special day!

  • Working with Buster and Extreme DJs was great. He answered our many questions and walked us through the whole timeline of the event, offering suggestions based on his years of experience. Very affordable prices, and we’re excited to have him help us celebrate another event next year! Would highly recommend to friends and family.

  • Buster was the perfect DJ! We had a very mixed age group on the dance floor, and he was able to really read the crowd and play a wide variety of music that kept people dancing all night!

  • Working with Buster and Extreme DJ and Lighting for our wedding was an amazing experience. We really wanted to avoid a lot of cheesy reception traditions and to prioritize our guests’ experience at the reception and Buster helped us think through what the day would look like for them. We had multiple calls prior to the wedding to talk through logistics- these calls answered all of my questions and helped us align on the atmosphere we wanted to create. Buster was very responsive to when I reached out, proactively provided information, and helped us keep track of deadlines. Additionally, Buster had a lot of knowledge about our venue and was able to provide perspective and experience about the best use of the space. I would definitely recommend Extreme DJ and Lighting Services!

  • Out of the other DJ companies that we've reviewed prior to our wedding, Extreme DJs & Lighting  was by far the best pick! Buster helped us not stress so much over the music/reception hosting by meeting with us  in person, explaining the plans and everything else in great detail.  During the wedding reception, Emily (the DJ) was AMAZING! Not only was she very professional towards all of our guests/family, she also ensured that our night ran very smoothly. She was very kind and very fun to be around! Thank you so much Extreme DJs & Lighting for making our night a very memorable one. I definitely recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a professional business that has reasonable prices. Thank you! - William & Olivia

  • Buster and his company were fantastic to work with for our wedding day. He helped us go through the timeline of the wedding day and offered advice on a number of things that I didn't expect from a DJ. He has a great system in place that makes the process easy and keeps him informed about anything music related he needs to know. He also wasn't pushy about selling us any upgrades, but did show us the up-lighting option and all I can say is DO IT!! The up-lighting took the reception/dancing to another level! Thanks for everything Buster!

  • I love Buster! He went above and beyond for our wedding reception!! His eye for detail is unmatched, as he made the lighting at our Peoria Zoo reception a highlight of the night. He also was a HUGE part in making our reception timeline seamless! I am so thankful I booked him for our wedding!

  • We booked with Extreme DJs & Lighting for our wedding as we were recommended to them through our venue. As we had to postpone and eventually cancel due to COVID-19, Buster was unwilling to give us a refund or even partial refund as we cancelled within 90 days of our event. A pandemic is not something my now husband and I ever expected to have happen, and Buster was the ONLY vendor unwilling to give us our money back. He was immoral, unethical and only concerned about his own business. Buster was fine keeping our money (almost a thousand dollars) for doing absolutely nothing! Our venue was wonderful and would highly recommend booking with them, however Extreme DJs & Lighting are no longer in their recommended vendor packet.

    responded with the following comments.

    Jordan, Covid-19 has unfortunately put a lot of couples in the terrible situation of deciding whether or not to lower their guest list and go through with their event or postpone in hopes that things will be back to normal by the new date. I feel terrible for these couples and have done everything I can to help. From the beginning of the large gathering restrictions, I have offered our 2020 clients several options for rescheduling our services to another date for no additional fee and no additional deposit. You were given these options as well and I was happy to let you to reschedule all services for your June wedding & reception to September for no additional fee or deposit. In mid-May you FALSELY claimed that your venue had cancelled all events for the year. You said you decided to get married in June in a private ceremony and cancel our services for the reception in September instead of rescheduling a second time. Then you had your dad call threatening me and insisting that you deserve to get your deposit back even though I had already provided a portion of the services you purchased. As I explained to him, in addition to holding specific services for your event date, the required deposit also helps pay for things like planning advice & assistance, online planning form access, music purchases, client calls & consultations along with other “behind the scenes” expenses such as administrative costs, scheduling software, equipment upkeep, music library updates, advertising, office lease, equipment storage, office supplies, liability insurance, vehicle insurance, utilities, and that’s just to name a few. A lot of effort goes into every one of our events long before we ever get to the actual day of the event. The labor required on the day of an event is only a small portion of the total labor and expenses involved in that event and it is because of this that the deposit is non-refundable. The contract you signed specifically states that the deposit is non-refundable for any services cancelled. This is nothing we try to hide and it’s a standard practice among most vendors in the wedding/event industry. I wish I could afford to give back deposits for clients that choose to cancel services rather than reschedule. Unfortunately, If I do that, then I likely won’t have a business by next year and thus, wouldn’t be able to provide services to all of my clients that have been willing to reschedule their wedding rather than cancel. I have an obligation to put them first and ensure the doors of my business stay open. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to do more for you.

  • Buster helped us coordinate well before our wedding, which was super helpful considering we really had no clue where to start. RJ followed through with all the details on the day of, and we were very pleased. We got a lot of compliments on RJ’s professionalism and kindness throughout and we’re very impressed with how well he managed our families differing tastes in music.

  • Professional and very organized overall! My wife and I booked music for our wedding reception and got the pleasure of working with Buster Bracken who was clearly very experienced and professional about everything in the planning process. The music was great and the lighting setup was ecstatic (synchronized with music). Great experience overall with no hiccups or issues!
