DJs for Weddings
Fletcher has been successful in music since his career began with DJ’ing small clubs in the California Bay Area in his late teens. His love for hip-hop and house music drove him from Santa Cruz to San Francisco.
In his mid-twenties he moved into music studios, falling in love with recording after a rare opportunity to meet and work with Grammy winning producer Narada Michael Walden. He worked in a broad range of music – everything from jazz, to gospel, to rap, to rock, to salsa…. Learning in studio from musicians what makes us all move and feel music in our soul. His love for live music and nightlife had him move back into venues mixing sound with live bands that he’d worked with in the studios.
Now Fletcher has moved with his knowledge and passion for music to Chicago, taking the city by storm returning back to DJ’ing armed with more knowledge, experience, and passion than ever before, happier than ever before and with an eagerness to help you to have a great time!
Kyle Mann is a DJ and musician who has been performing around the Chicagoland area for over 10 years. His passion for music started at the early age of five learning classical, jazz, and classic pop/rock songs on piano and guitar, and evolved into producing and spinning dance and electronic music later in high school. He continued his musical studies throughout college where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Music and Business at Elmhurst College. His original music has been played on radio stations across the Midwest including Chicago’s WXRT 93.1 FM and WONC 89.1 FM, and he has DJ’d/performed at many weddings, private parties, clubs, and festivals including The Taste of Chicago, Roscoe Fest, 101.9 FM ‘The Mix’ Party In The Park, The Navy Pier Grand Ballroom, The Metro, and Lincoln Hall.
My lifelong love of music has led me to being a DJ and I have been blessed with a variety of memorable gigs. My musical knowledge runs deep and spans a broad variety of genres including old and new-school R&B, soul, funk, classic and contemporary jazz, 80’s pop and New Wave, and down-tempo electronica.
I also love emceeing at events, and I feel great when I’m able to read the crowd to create distinct moods and atmospheres that keep the dance floor filled. I believe the main reason we are here on Earth is to serve others, and I love to help my clients celebrate, using great music to create great memories.

It’s simple: you want a DJ who knows music. Someone to get the party going and keep it going all night. Stitely DJs are musicians first and foremost; they understand the important role of music in your wedding and how song choice can enhance your enjoyment of the big day. With their encyclopedic knowledge of diverse musical genres, Stitely DJs are more than just human iPods who simply play requests (though they can do that too). They are living, breathing musicians who can craft a soundtrack for your wedding that includes your musical favorites and captures your unique style, from the perfect bridal party intro to the end of night jam that floods the dance floor. You benefit from their experience but you also have the opportunity to request the songs and genres that are important to you, your fiancé and your families.
Stitely DJs are known for their knowledge and professionalism as well as their support during the planning process. They understand weddings from start to finish and will work with you, along with the Planning Department, to create a timeline that allows your wedding to flow seamlessly from moment to moment. Through conversation and collaboration, they encapsulate your personal style throughout the reception, not only through song selection, but also with the sophisticated handling of announcements. Our DJs can work solo or in pairs depending on your preference. Working in pairs allows them the flexibility of having one focus on the music while the other coordinates with your caterer and other vendors to provide a stress free experience.
Stitely also offers exceptional live music options such as string trios, guitarists and pianists for your ceremony, as well as jazz or acoustic rock combos for the cocktail and dinner portion of the evening.
