“Nick was incredibly resourceful and helpful all night! When we ran out of dance music, he jumped right on it and added his own. He also suggested shortening our mom dances to 2 minutes and we’re so glad we did. Great team and always so responsive.“
LYTLE HOUSE, CHICAGO, IL
I want to build something that is different. We are the only DJ consulting agency. We tailor our services to our customer’s needs in every aspect possible — our music, lighting, DJs, announcements, our staff, everything!
Experience what it’s like having a live solo professional cellist or a professional pianist/singer performing at your event! Having a live musician, like Cloudia or Jacob, brings on a whole new atmosphere when you walk into the event!! Great for private events and especially weddings during the ceremony and cocktail hour. Corporate events and holiday functions are a sight to see with a live professional musician. Booking a string quartet or a trio are a special request. So let us know! See pricing page for more details!
“Great price and exactly what we were looking for!”

“We wanted to let you know how pleased we were with how everything went with the wedding at the Morton Arboretum yesterday. We can’t say enough about what a fantastic job Nick did. He handled all the technical aspects and did a great job as a DJ. He also had a similar vision and values for our day.“
Our DJs dress in professional suit attire at every event, whether it’s a corporate event, wedding, or private event such as a graduation event or a quinceanera. We like to look as good as we sound. A fine tailored suit and tie — elegant and sophisticated.
We require at least one 6-foot banquet table, with linens, and adequate power. If your event will occur in multiple spaces (such as a wedding ceremony in another area) then your DJ will need another table and access to electricity in those areas as well. Talk to your DJ about any additional areas that need sound coverage and they can advise you on exactly what they need to make it happen.
“The Jukebox” is a DIY ipod/ipad DJ service. This means that YOU create the music playlists on programs such as Spotify, Apple Music, or iTunes on your own laptop, tablet, phone or iPod that you provide the day of the event. Our consultants will guide you in advance on how to create music playlists that will cover each section of the night (ceremony playlist, cocktail hour playlist, dinner playlist, first dance playlist, open dancing playlist, etc).
We connect your playlist into our system and speakers, playing your own songs, your own requests, and in the order you set up. This plug-n-play package allows YOU to be the “DJ” for the night, but without actually managing the music.
While you and your guests dance the night away to your “Jukebox”, a DJ will be there running the announcements throughout your event and helping control the music.
Just as you pay a caterer for their expertise in food, you are paying N.A.S. in large part for our expertise in entertainment/music. We are more than willing to provide you with a multitude of suggestions based on your preferences, and we’re perfectly comfortable selecting most (or all) of the music if you aren’t interested in doing so. Our extensive knowledge of music enables us to work with your requests and create a mood that reflects your tastes while creating a great atmosphere for all of your guests. In addition, we specialize in addressing music “challenges,” whether combining multicultural musical styles or adapting unique or eclectic music tastes to the formality of a wedding. Both your DJ and our management team are always available to answer questions or assist you in choosing the songs that will reflect your vision of your special day.
Rest assured, we have never missed or been late to an event. Just in case, we have a wide variety qualified DJs that could fill in at a moment’s notice and provide you with the same level of service. As far as back-up equipment is concerned, we always have that on hand at every event.
