Marc SimmonsMaster of Ceremonies & DJ
  • Bachelor of Arts, Colombia College Chicago: Major in Radio and Broadcasting

I started DJing in the summer of 1987 (8th grade) and by senior year of high school, I had my own on-air “dancemix” radio show with turntables and vinyl records. I then went on to get a radio broadcasting degree from Columbia College in Chicago, and in the process, was fortunate to intern at Chicago’s B96 radio station. I have 3 amazing children in my life that I can’t get enough of. I love all genres of music (some more than others) and anything to do with cars. I pride myself on having the ability to read any crowd and get them up and dancing. My passion for DJing has never stopped and never will!

“Marc was the DJ at our September 2017 wedding, and we couldn’t have been more impressed! He did an amazing job keeping the party going the whole night and the dance floor was never empty. We even asked him to incorporate some Polish songs we provided, and he worked them in as if they were songs he used all the time. We received a ton of compliments from our guest and will definitely recommend him and Something 2 Dance 2 to all our friends!”

“The day of the wedding, Marc was so helpful and so on top of everything! We had our DJ provide music for both the ceremony and the reception, and he worked amazingly on both! He was always making sure the groom and I were taken care of, and he accommodated the small last minute changes that were needed…”Click here to read Marc's complete review.

“Planning with Jay was simple and easy, we left feeling very confident. We requested to work with Marc, as he Dj’ed my sister, and my brother’s wedding and we wanted to round it out 🙂 Marc arrived to our wedding on time (if not early) and was set up with more than enough time. He was very professional and kept the night running smoothly, we had a barn wedding and thought the dance floor would be empty, but Marc had it filled all night! Thanks :)”Click here to read Marc's complete review.
