  • Bachelor of Arts, Columbia 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!

“We had our reception at the Morton Arboretum, and they suggested Something 2 Dance 2. We could not have been more pleased with the result. Our DJ was Marc Simmons. Before the wedding, he sat down with us for over an hour to make sure that he knew exactly what we wanted. He was patient and asked great questions to really get a feel for the type of reception that we wanted to have. He put together an incredibly detailed timeline, and gave it to me with enough advance that I could review it. He was also flexible, as he was willing to make changes on the day of. Marc responded to the crowd so well! Everyone has told us how wonderful our party was, and a HUGE part of that is due to Marc. He kept people on the dance floor all night. You simply cannot go wrong booking Marc.”

“I couldn’t say enough good things about Something2Dance2 at our wedding! We had Marc as a DJ, and he went above and beyond during the entire process. Him and Tamara made sure we had everything ready to go before the big day. On the day of the wedding, Marc made sure everyone had what they needed from the beginning of the ceremony to the end of the reception. He listened to our style and (sometimes unique) music choices, and helped make our wedding a dream come true! He kept the dance floor packed for the entire night. We received many comments from our guests that “this was the most fun and entertaining wedding I’ve ever been to” and that “there wasn’t one bad song, I couldn’t take a break”! Highly recommend S2D2 (and Marc!) to all!”

“Something 2 Dance 2 was great to work with from start to finish! The owner was personable and really worked to figure out what we were looking for and which DJ could deliver. Marc was assigned as our DJ and he was amazing! He nailed exactly what we were hoping for and was extremely helpful in putting together a run of show for the ceremony and reception. Everyone had a great time out on the dance floor all night long!”

“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!”

He was always making sure the groom and I were taken care of, and he accommodated the small last minute changes that were needed…”

“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.
