Thank you for considering us as your entertaiment and/or lighting. We know there are SO many choices here in Chicago and we want you to know that we really do appreciate every opportunity that comes our way. Diamond Event Group was created from years of hard work, growth, and knowledge. Our event specialists are all here to ensure your event is as you expect it to be - perfect!

Diamond Event Group is generations beyond the average entertainment group. Our competitors push the notion of "we're doing so many events, why not yours?" I would be lying to you if I said I don't want thousands of events per year, but what I'll never do is compromise one single event with cheap, or subpar equipment. I've spent years learning about what makes lights look best, what sound systems sound better than others, where pieces of equipment should be placed in a room to maximize not only their capability, but how you and your guests will perceive them all while maintaining the beautiful layout of your event. More imporatantly, I've spent years developing relationships with entertainers and partners that I consider to be the best at what they do.

Working with Diamond Event Group to create your event is one of the easiest steps you'll take in planning. We understand your lives consist of jobs, family, extracurricular activites and we strive to make our meetings based on your schedule. We come to you when you're available, fully prepared with layouts, lighting designs, room dimensions, song suggestions, and itinerary ideas that will make your event seem fresh and fun for everyone.

You have my word that when working with Diamond Event Group your event is our number one priority.
