Jay Congdon, Scott Andree, and Jim Cummings

“Jay was excellent to work with! My husband and I are so happy with everything he did on our wedding day at the Deer Path Inn. We really appreciated Jay’s service and disc jockeying, and we were thankful for his professionalism, promptness, attention to detail, simplicity, communication, and meticulousness. He nailed everything perfectly, and there were no details or important song selections missing from the night. It was spectacular partnering together with you!”

Scott Andree (Music Expert)

Scott is one of Chicagoland’s foremost experts on party music. He constantly monitors industry sources, as well as live events, to know exactly what songs are the most popular at any given moment. Scott’s knowledge has rescued many a party from certain failure, by recognizing a request list full of undanceable music while there’s still time to fix it. A lot of great concert music simply doesn’t translate well on a dance floor; and we’re delighted to have a resource like Scott who can help an event planner “tune up” her music list to ensure that her party guests have a great time instead of sitting on their hands all night.

“DJ Scott Andree was amazing. From beginning to end, our wedding (which was at the zoo, very difficult to set up and work audio equipment there) was amazing thanks to the music selections Scott came up with. Which is not to say you can’t provide your own play list. Fourth Estate can either give you complete control (you can give them an entire playlist for the whole event) or is more than happy to provide their own choice based on loose guide lines you give them. And when it came time to announce the wedding party Scott made sure before hand to know exactly how to pronounce names and to let us know what we needed to do when announced. Again, it was the details like that which made us feel Scott really cared about our wedding. He was the best.”

Jim Cummings (Sound Expert)

Jim brings a wealth of knowledge about sound technology and acoustics. He can look at a party venue, and in seconds determine the best placement for a DJ’s speakers to ensure clear and even sound distribution. So you won’t have painful ear-splitting noise on the dance floor and silence at the back of the room. Jim has guided our selection of sound equipment, which now includes such high-end brand names as Bose, JBL, Electro-Voice, Shure, Crown, Numark and more. Jim is also a tremendous resource when planning sound for an outdoor function.

“Our DJ Jim followed all of our direction for the ceremony music and everything after that. We did not pick a whole lot of songs for dancing and left it up to the DJ to read the room and pick songs for people to dance to. Boy, did he do a great job with that! Everyone was dancing and having a great time to everything he played. Could not have asked for a better experience. He definitely made our day less stressful and more fun! I would recommend anyone looking for a DJ for their big day to hire them! Nothing but an amazing experience!”
