"DJ Julie was not just a DJ. She offered advice and suggestions on wedding planning. She was patient and kind during my times of panic and dealt with my silly questions well. My special day would not have been as perfect as it was if it wasn't for DJ Julie. She was 10 out of 10."

"Great communication, easy to talk to, goes above and beyond making sure every detail is in place. Just when you think you've got the perfect play list, she unexpectedly messages you with an awesome game changer idea! She makes you feel like you are her only client, 100% focused on your event. Communication never stops. Even during the event she makes sure to grab your ear for a quick run through on what's coming up next. She is high energy and all smiles the whole time! Love her sense of humor and attention to detail. Book DJ Boggie now before it's too late!"
Stefanie (Messineo) Connell
"Dj Julie was wonderful! With just 5 weeks before our wedding and living 6 hours away from our venue, we decided to get a Dj. Julie said yes no questions asked! She was super helpful, and made everything so easy for us. On the night of the wedding, Julie kept track of time and made sure everything was going smoothly. Thank you, Dj Julie!"
Katie (Martin) Brauer
"Thanks a ton for coming out and DJing our wedding. It was nice having someone who was on schedule, had great taste, and made sure to mingle with friends / family throughout the process. You did such a nice job I have had family members reach out to me for your number and services. Once again, thanks for everything and we will be staying in touch!"
"DJ Julie is awesome!! Due to contacting her after she was booked for our wedding date she still took time to help us! She made a great playlist for the dinner music and limo music! She has a vast amount of music and took the extra time to get feedback about what we liked and then went with similar styles! Did an awesome job and highly recommend if looking for quality and someone who will put in the time for your big event!"
"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!"
Hannah (Taylor) Engelkes
"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!"

"Julie was an excellent recommendation for our wedding DJ! Immediately she made us feel comfortable and confident - like talking to a friend. 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."

"Julie did an excellent job DJing our 40th wedding anniversary. She is professional, talented, funny and a super event planner. My husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing. It was our first time hiring a DJ and she did a amazing job. We highly recommend her."
"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."

"PERFECT! Great music, great person! 100% recommend! You are awesome! Thank you thank you!"
"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 wasn’t 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 didn’t 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 hadn’t 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!"
