Every party planning guide tells you to ask a DJ company, "How are you different or better than other DJs?" I'll answer that below. A better question is, "How will your party be different or better than other parties?"
Our job at Fourth Estate Audio is to help you find that special quality that makes you unique, and help you showcase your personality, taste and sense of humor in a wedding, quinceanera or other event that is totally "you."
Your entertainment plays a huge role in reintroducing you to the people closest to you, and making your guests feel loved, welcome and involved. You want minimal stress, whether you're planning or partying. Everything we do is designed to make your entertainment planning simple and stress-free.
Our web site puts all the resources at your fingertips to let you research us, hire us and help us put on a party that will make you proud. When you have a question, we answer it promptly. When something changes unexpectedly, we can adapt with no fuss.
In more than 50 years as mobile entertainment professionals, we've encountered just about every twist and turn that's likely to confront us. We have a "Plan B" and "Plan C" for all the surprises that are certain to pop up. So we never lose our composure, and we can ensure a seamless, elegant affair, from your first phone call to the last note of music.
If you're willing to help us help you, you're in for the wedding experience of a lifetime. Here's what sets Fourth Estate Audio apart from other DJs in Chicago.

We're people people. But we're not clowns.
A "wacky" DJ may be great for children's parties. But adults quickly grow tired of a DJ who constantly pumps the crowd for applause, or otherwise demands all of their attention. Most parties call for a DJ with strong master-of-ceremonies skills and the wisdom to use his own words sparingly. You are the star of your party, not your DJ.
Imagine a Chicago DJ company actually bragging about such a thing. But in the DJ business, being too big risks losing quality control. We have seven professional Chicago DJs, each with at least 20 years experience. This is our business, not a hobby. You deserve no less.
We hope that, after you've done some objective research, you'll conclude that we are a great match for your needs, with complete peace of mind, at a fair price. That's what you really want from your Chicago DJ, isn't it?
