Weddings

"Julie did an OUTSTANDING job DJing our wedding reception last night!! She kept everything on schedule with our pre-organized timeline, checked in with my husband and I multiple times throughout the night, kept guests on the dance floor all night long, and was great at keeping the party fun!! She is great at what she does and I would recommend her to anyone!"

"Absolutely AWESOME!!!! I've known Julie for years....she's truly amazing!! She DJ'd my daughter's wedding yesterday (along with her equally awesome daughter Jess) and all I can say is WOW!!!! She's professional, fun, witty and extremely talented. She met with Hannah and Shawn several times to nail down songs, timelines, etc. And she accepted emails from me to add songs that perhaps my kids didn't think about (thanks Julie!!!) to get the "old people" dancing!!! She absolutely NAILED everything the entire night!!! She kept the guests on the dance floor, interacted with guests, and had everyone having a fabulous time!! Thanks Julie and Jess.....WELL DONE!!! You guys ROCK!!! I highly recommend DJ Julie Boggie for all your music needs!!!"

"We have known Julie for many years. When Justin and I first talked about getting married we always knew we wanted Julie to help with music. Helping us would be a little different though, as it would be two different music genres/cultures coming together. I grew up with all kinds of Latin-specifically Mexican-music in my home as well as American, pop music. Justin loves every kind of genre there is, so we knew our choices were going to be a mixture. Julie, having never done a mixed wedding before, embraced the challenge and every step of the way made sure we had what we wanted. She always checked in and sent snippets of songs she found in English and Spanish that she thought would fit in with what we had requested. The day of our wedding I got so many people telling me "your DJ is so good!" or "where did you find a DJ to play both Spanish and English music?!" That in itself was a huge compliment and solidified that we were right from the very beginning that Julie was the right person for the job. Thank you so much for making our day that much more special and being able to bring music from two different cultures together so effortlessly!!!"

"She was great!!! We hired Julie for my daughter's wedding. She was fun and kept the dance floor full! She even tracked down the bride's grandparents song from their wedding (from 1952) and helped us to celebrate their 65th anniversary that night! Very personable, detailed and fun!"

She was so patient and helpful during the planning process. Julie made helpful suggestions along the way but always stayed true to our vision. She recognized what got the crowd moving and kept our guests dancing all night! Thank you Julie for an unforgettable evening."

"You were an awesome DJ for our anniversary party! We had no idea how to pick a play list but you took the time to ensure we had exactly the right music for each part of the evening and even hunted down two of our offbeat song choices. Thank you for your part in making it a memorable day."

"The Windsor Fall Dance was wonderful. DJ Julie Boggie had the latest age appropriate hits and was really engaged with the children. She participated by dressing up with the theme, leading dances and making sure the kids felt that this was their event. I still hear the kids talking about her special lighting and fog machine. Highly Recommended."

Graduation Parties

"DJ Julie was the DJ for my daughter's 8th grade graduation banquet and she was fantastic! She had the best mix and also took requests and fulfilled them all. The students (and us parents!) had an absolute blast! Thanks, Julie, for making a great night even better!"

Private & Company Parties

"PERFECT! Great music, great person! 100% recommend! You are awesome! Thank you thank you!"

Angela Green
Private Party



"I met DJ Julie at one of her famous Halloween parties a few years ago. Immediately, I noticed that "this woman" knows how to throw a party. She is calm, cool, collected, and FUN. She makes everyone, from the little children to the seniors, feel welcome. I wanted to have an anniversary party for my day care, but wasnít sure how to pull it all together. Julie was the perfect person to help. She gave me advice about being a good hostess and helped me plan how to set up in such a way as to encourage mingling. I didnít know what kind of songs to choose; since I spend most of my time with children under the age of 5. Again, DJ Julie to the rescue. I would have been a nervous wreck if it hadnít been for her. She checked in with me regularly throughout the party, encouraged me and helped me stay on top of things. Everyone enjoyed DJ Julie!"

"The inaugural Golden Futures 5K at Rock Valley College this year was incredibly fortunate to have Julie Boggie as the DJ and emcee! Her music was fun and upbeat, while still being family friendly. She pulled everyone together to announce the start of the race, got the crowd cheering for runners and walkers as they crossed the finish line and gave the awards afterwards with style. Plus, she was completely professional and easy to work with throughout the entire process. Any event would be lucky to have her as DJ!"
