Building Success, Online And Off

Illinois’ Top Rated Local® Award Winner: Five-O DJ Entertainment

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Five-O DJ Entertainment is an award winner in 2019.

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Tom DJ’d for our June wedding, and we had the best experience with him. He is a true detail-oriented professional, and his organization really helped make the planning process as easy as possible. He is very responsive, and his meetings are constructive and thorough. You will leave the meetings knowing you are in good hands! He played all the songs we requested during the ceremony and reception, and kept the dinner music within the genres that my husband and I enjoy. We received many compliments from our guests about how good of a job Tom did, and we would recommend his talent to anyone!” – A.S.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Five-O DJ Entertainment is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average DJ

Tom started DJing for fun in high school. He and his friends did neighborhood events and school dances. He went to college for zoology before finding work at The Lincoln Park Zoo. Eventually, Tom changed careers and become a police officer, which is the inspiration behind the company name, Five-O DJ Entertainment. Tom was inspired by another officer on the force who was a DJ. After chatting with him and learning about modern-day DJing, he realized he
missed being a DJ. In 2010, Tom decided to start his own DJ company, Five-O DJ Entertainment.

We were excited to learn all about Five-O DJ Entertainment and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner, Thomas Krejczyk.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Five-O DJ Entertainment stand apart from its competitors. Thomas told us all about his dedication to communication, as well as his unwavering passion and commitment for what he does:

“I’m very old-school with my approach. I’m just not going to plan a couple’s biggest day of their life on an app. I’m going to have face-to-face meetings and sit-down planning consultations to plan the details of the event. I use the lost art of old-fashioned, in-person communication. I also have a planning workbook that I give to the clients, and I go through it with them, which explains how to plan a ‘typical’ wedding. It also includes worksheets that they complete and return to me to help me plan the day, documents what they are looking for, and how they want me to run the day. During weddings, I try and help out with other vendors if they need it, and help with any coordinating of the wedding. Because I do have a stable income source, DJing is a passion, and it’s not just a job to me. As a result, your event gets 110 percent of all my effort and attention at a lower cost than other professional DJs!”

We asked him about the Five-O DJ Entertainment business mission, or how he works to make the world a better place, and Thomas said:

“I patrol the streets by day and DJ by night, and my motto is: professionalism with personality.”

Building Success Through The Years

Five-O DJ Entertainment has earned a fantastic reputation, so we wanted to know more about how Thomas has managed to grow his business. He told us:

“When I first started, I did a lot of ads to get my name out there, but now, most of my business is from word of mouth and referrals. A lot of my business still comes from TheKnot.com as well. For the last two years, I have been fully booked for every weekend of the year, so I’ve grown the business to be as busy as I can handle!”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Five-O DJ Entertainment has managed to. We asked if Thomas could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“Don’t ever lose the art of communication. You need to constantly communicate with your customers. That means answering the phone when you are available and calling customers back promptly.”


Congratulations to Five-O DJ Entertainment for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Thomas for taking the time to speak with us!
