We are six months into 2019 and feeling super grateful for all of the opportunities we have had this year so far. It’s important to take the time and show our appreciation for all of our event partners whether you’re a wedding planner, photographer or event designer. All of our clients for weddings and private events, charity partners and corporate clientele. All of our club venues, owners and promoters. However, we wouldn’t be who we are today if it wasn’t for many of the people in this photo. Thank you to our personal TDF team including all of our DJ’s, musicians, tech specialists and support staff. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do every day without you! You are only as strong as your team and we are only getting stronger. We can’t wait to see what the rest of 2019 has in store and thank you for rocking with The DJ Firm!

Venue Feature; London House Chicago

London House Chicago is known for some of the best views in the city. Just take yourself to the 22nd floor and enjoy some small bites and classic cocktails all while taking in your surroundings and all Chicago has to offer. If you’re not on the rooftop during the summer time, they have a great indoor space, too. No matter your preference, on many nights, The DJ Firm provides the music and we always guarantee a good time. London House Chicago is also known for it’s history as a local jazz space dating back to the 1940’s—bringing in musicians of the time. This month they paid tribute to this history by offering jazz brunches on the weekends featuring different jazz musicians. Patrick Jasper, of The DJ Firm, was featured twice, offering his musical talents on the saxophone. London House Chicago, Patrick Jasper and their Jazz Brunches were also featured on WGN News! The DJ Firm offers more than just DJ’s—we offer live music acts, too! Whether you’re looking for a weekend getaway, a fun night out with friends or a trendy summer time space, look no further, and check out London House Chicago!
