We hear your vision, review and discuss your needs and collaborate with you to craft the perfect soundtrack and experience for your best day ever!
YOUR WEDDING, YOUR MUSIC!
Every couple is unique and the music for your big day should reflect both of you! We comb through your music & pop culture tastes and collaborate on the songs that set the tone for every moment of the day.
We help you plan every step of the night, and always make sure you are comfortable throughout the process and your guests have the time of their lives!
DJS, MCS & MUSIC PROS
Our experienced team of MCs & DJs go the extra mile to ensure the details of your evening are PERFECT.
We're available from the start to assist you! When you book us, we go to work immediately, discussing music and direction for the night. We're accessible all the time and we're with you all the way!
PRO SOUND SYSTEMS
We provide high-end sound systems and equipment for each and every room or location of your wedding. We provide wireless speakers, battery-powered PA systems, and an abundance of wireless mic systems to accommodate for your indoor/outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour or reception . If you have live musicians, send them our way! We can assist in mixing sound for their acoustic performance.
EVENT SPACE LIGHTING & MORE!
We offer uplighting for your venue & event space, customized monogram/patterned lighting, and intelligent dance floor lighting to make your wedding a memorable and fun experience for you and your guests!
We are also excited to offer a projector & screen for any pre-recorded (or live) video-cast, and we are proud to introduce a brand new PHOTO BOOTH KIOSK! (email us for details!)
“Rick was the perfect DJ for our wedding. Not only did he take into account all of the songs we wanted to hear, he also took note of all of the songs we didn’t want to hear, which set a perfect atmosphere for our night. The dance floor was packed from start to finish and he definitely catered to the mood of the room. Perfect music for a perfect night - you won’t find anyone better.”
“We could not have had anyone better to DJ our wedding. From beginning to end, the music was beyond exceptional. People always say, "oh people kept telling me that our wedding was the best wedding ever!” (and we got that too), but we are also hearing, “you had the best DJ ever”, no lie. Rick, if you’re still DJing in ten years, we are going to need to hire you again for the anniversary party.“
“Rick was a great fit for our event. He has a vast knowledge of many various types of music and he picked up on our taste and style right away. We were very confident he would play just what we wanted. He also handled the MC responsibilities very well, which took a lot of worry off our backs so we could enjoy the day! Everything flowed smoothly the entire day due to this guy. It couldn’t have been a better wedding!!!”
“Choosing Rick as our DJ and MC was one of the best decisions we made! When you’re planning your big day, you want to work with people that make you feel good and that you just like being around, and we got that feeling from our very first meeting with Rick. Our guests had an absolute blast at the reception and hardly ever left the dance floor. He also executed our ceremony music beautifully. I continue to recommend Rick to all engaged couples!”

Chicago's Wedding Soundtrack Pros for the Modern Offbeat Couple starts with, well, an offbeat couple!
Ten Twelve ENt. began with Rick Linus, a Chicago club/college radio DJ, who started doing weddings for close friends around 2009. When that first wedding wrapped up, it led to another, and another and some more, and even more!
Fast forward a few years to 2012 and Rick proposed to his partner in crime, Melissa, and the journey of TTE officially began! We marked the calendar for our own "Best Day Ever" for 10/12/13 and off we went. We realized how important it was to truly personalize our own wedding's music and have it compliment our relationships with all of our friends and families who were there sharing it with us. Once we wrapped up our big day, we realized that we could take that same approach and aesthetic and apply it to Rick's growing DJ business.
We take our love & knowledge of pop culture, movies & TV, oldies, Motown, hip-hop, rock, punk, indie, & dance music & help crafted the Ultimate Wedding "Mix-Tape" experience. From your ceremony to the very last dance, TTE's team of MCs, DJs & Mix-Tape professionals prepare a timeline, customize music & handle the flow of the evening for your Best Day Ever!
Come on in & let's have some fun!
