- BS General Business, Northeastern Illinois University, 1995
Being one of nine children, I grew up in a house that was always filled with music. Whether it was being a roadie for my brothers’ bands or making mix tapes with another brother, I have always had a love for music and the effect it can have on a party if done right.
I started my DJ career in 1990, shortly after an honorable discharge from the Air Force. At that time I still had to cart around milk crates full of records and a huge “coffin” to carry my turntables. I worked in a music store all through college and was always the person people came to with the toughest questions. I pride myself on knowing all genres of music and making sure everyone in attendance will have a chance to get up and dance.
I am the father of three lovely daughters ranging in age from 13-19. They keep me up to date on all the latest songs and definitely keep me young. I have been with Something 2 Dance 2 for 6 years, but have been a wedding DJ for over 20. My wedding day was one of the absolute best days of my life, and I feel my job is to make sure you feel the same way on your big day!

“I couldn’t possibly say enough good things about our experience with Ron from Something 2 Dance 2. From the very beginning of our planning it was as smooth as could be! My husband and I recognized at the start that Ron and the team were not only professional, but also passionate about their craft. The meeting with Ron before the wedding was just perfect. It completely put me at ease. Since my husband is Venezuelan and I’m from Chicago our wedding was a fusion of two cultures we wanted to make sure each side of the family felt represented and celebrated! Ron showed such enthusiasm for making our dream a reality. Even the smallest of requests he made sure to make a reality. He started our song “casate conmigo” at the perfect place for us to dance to down the aisle. The ceremony went off without a hitch and all of our guests commented on the fun music selections during the ceremony. As we started the reception dinner Ron had the perfect energy to get the guests excited! I so grateful that Ron was so thorough with the details prior so that the night of we were able to just sit back and relax knowing he had everything under control and nothing would be missed! Our first dance was a salsa song as latin dancing is one of our passions. Ron had actually listened to our song prior to the in-person meeting and suggested we shorten it just a bit. Boy was that great advice! It ended up being the perfect length and the crowed loved it! We also incorporated mambo, bachata, merengue and many other types of music. It was no issue for Ron! He was able to keep the perfect balance of genres throughout the night. We also wanted to incorporate the Venezuelan tradition of “hora loca” (crazy hour) at 11pm and Ron was up for the challenge! He took time to let the crowd know what was coming so that everyone felt excited and ready to enjoy the experience! The music was perfect and went well with the marti gras feel of the hora loca! All I can say is thank goodness for Ron!”
Theresa & Paul
“We had a great night! 4 hours of straight dancing, all thanks to Ron– who kept the party going all night long. He is such a nice guy, very personable and easy to work with. He met with us beforehand and helped to organize the introductions of the wedding party, the cake cutting, and other recognitions. I’ve known Ron for a long time and he did a fantastic job. I would definitely recommend him!”
Jeri & Pierce
“We had Ron for our wedding, and he was BEYOND PERFECT! Tamara and the whole S2D2 team was so easy to work with and incredibly well organized- their online planning portal was so helpful for us. We were planning our wedding from out of state and Ron even Skyped us to have our planning meeting so we didn’t have to make a special trip down. He was so responsive to all the little last minute changes we made, and even called my mom the week before the wedding to calm her nerves. During the wedding, not only was the music EXACTLY what we wanted, but he made sure that all my important people were there to watch first dance etc, and he just made the whole night run so smoothly. They even brought fun props to replace the glass-clinking for a kiss- we had a mini putting green on the dance floor that the kids and adults alike had a blast with. The dance floor was packed the whole night! Couldn’t have been happier with our choice in DJ- HIGHLY recommend him and S2D2!!!”
Julie & Matthew
“What a great experience! S2D2 was a fantastic addition to our wedding celebration. Ron was the best and took care of us through the whole process from a month out to the day of the reception. Thanks for everything!”

“For our wedding, we hired Something 2 Dance 2. We worked with Ron Fiedler. What an awesome DJ! He really knows how to not only make a wedding fun, but knows how to help organize weddings as well.

I would highly recommend him to anyone for any event! Thanks Ron!”Click here to read Ron's complete review
“Ron Fiedler of Something 2 Dance 2 was amazing! He kept the dance floor hopping all night long at our wedding and was able to accommodate our requests throughout the evening. He kept the event focused to be certain our timeline stayed on track. Many of the guests complimented on the work Ron performed that evening. Even prior to the event, Ron was easily reached and not only answered our questions, but offered great suggestions based on his many years of experience. I truly believe that Ron is top notch and very few could have achieved the level of success we experienced.”Click here to read Ron's complete review

“Look no further for an excellent experience from start to finish! We knew after we had our initial meeting with Tamara that we would be well taken care of and we were not wrong. They take time to get to know the couple so the DJ that is matched up is a good fit. Our DJ, Ron, was excellent and ensured that the day ran smoothly and that the dance floor was packed! He was focused on our needs and vision of the day and took care of details we didn’t even think of…we couldn’t have been happier with our experience. Book them, you won’t be disappointed!”
Kailee & Michael
“I cannot say enough great things about S2D2, and specifically about our DJ- Ron. We first met Ron at my sister and brother in laws wedding in Oct. 2015. Toward the end of their wedding night he handed me his business card and said he thought I might be needing a DJ soon, about three months later my husband and I got engaged! It was a no brainer for Michael and I when it came time to pick a DJ. We were hoping and praying that Ron would be available on our wedding day. Luckily for us, he was! He is so wonderful at his job, and you can tell he genuinely cares about his clients. My family loved having a familiar face at our wedding, and I can guarantee that when my youngest sister is getting married someday she will want Ron there too!”
“Ron Fielder was a perfect hire for our wedding! We could not have asked for a better experience from the first meeting with S2D2 to the night of our wedding when we got extra time because our guests were enjoying themselves too much for the night to stop.”Click here to read Ron's complete review.

The music selections that we worked with him on sounded beautiful; ranging from each step of the ceremony (including working with our live violinist and officiant), the reception introductions, dinner music, dance music, and even some fun games for raffling off center pieces. He had this all down-pat and it worked out perfectly.
My wife and I absolutely loved working with Ron and upon the need for another DJ someday, we will definitely be seeking his services again.
