An NYC transplant via Chicago, Alicia’s bringing the east coast party! Alicia got her start on the decks as host of her own themed college radio show. After moving off the dial to play friends’ house parties and events, she was soon sending her DJ career down the aisle with Chicago’s premiere wedding DJ company, Toast & Jam.
A seasoned wedding DJ, Alicia knows just which track to drop and when to drop it – from Motown to new wave, big band to Beyoncé, deep cut indie to top 40 hits. She loves tailoring the evening to your own musical tastes and wants to give you just the party you imagine for your wedding.
And when she’s not mixing on the dance floor, Alicia is writing and performing her own music! A composer/performer, she makes avant art-pop and has performed all over the country. A natural performer, Alicia is a charming MC who’s only on the mic as much as she should be.
Between Alicia’s expertise and your vision, the soundtrack to your wedding will tear up the dance floor and leave everybody with happy hearts. Let’s boogie!
“My wife and I could not have been happier with the entire experience of Stylus and DJ Alicia for our July 2018 wedding in the Jersey Shore area. Professional at every step, she made sure you can put in your input on the overall mood of the music and will consult with you well in advance to get you on the right track; but I would recommend just letting Alicia go for it creatively and not to over-think your playlist recommendations, as she really knows how to read a room in the moment and adds her own element of fun. We had all ages at the reception and from my 3 year old niece dancing all night to DJ Alicia catering to our 86 year old Polish Grandfather with a wedding polka, everyone in the room couldn’t stop dancing all night and raving about her talents the next day. She even got my Father to tap dance to “Ride with Me”, which was a highlight of the entire evening. Alicia helped us relax by organizing the intro’s of parents/bridal party and kept the evening flowing well with keeping us on task for the cake cutting and speeches, etc. But really it is the KILLER dance party she provides that your guests will be talking about afterwards. Even the quality of her sound and slick song segues were top shelf. If you are nervous at all about finding the right DJ for you that won’t be the stereotypical “cheesy wedding DJ”, but want something with some tasteful fun and a calming presence, I could not recommend Stylus and DJ Alicia enough. You CANNOT go wrong here” -Eric & Susan
“Stylus and DJ Alicia were a perfect match for us. My wife and I have particular tastes in music and it was important for those to be reflected on our wedding day. We also wanted some surprises in there for us as well. We sat down with Alicia a few months prior to our wedding and we felt comfortable right away. We left confident our day was in good hands. We provided Alicia with a couple follow up emails that included playlists, a short list of must-plays, and the official songs for our wedding day; then one last call a few days before the event. …Wow! We got so many compliments from people. The ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner selections were on point. The dance floor was a huge hit – so much fun. The older crowd was into it, our little nieces and nephews loved it, my hometown friends went crazy. An amazing time and Alicia really provided the groundwork throughout the day for an unforgettable celebration and party. Awesome!!” -Justin & Catherine
“We worked with Stylus to select a DJ for our wedding. We had a very specific idea of what we wanted — a totally 50s/60s/70s dance party featuring nothing but Motown/soul/disco jams. Jane listened to our requests and suggested two DJs who would be a great fit. We really vibed with Alicia and booked her immediately. She didn’t disappoint–she was super charming, a great communicator, was really responsive to our vision, and had great suggestions when it came to how we wanted the reception to flow in terms of speeches, cake cutting, etc. And she was even more incredible day-of. She really read the room and guided the reception beautifully, the songs were perfectly ordered, and she brought so much positive energy to the room, bopping around behind the DJ booth and really seeming to dig what she was doing. Our guests were freaking out–they said the music was the best they’d ever heard at a wedding. Thank you, Alicia and Stylus!” -Emily & Jared
“We had a different kind of musical vision for our wedding, and Alicia did a great job of making it a reality. She worked hard to find some of the more obscure songs we were looking for, especially ones from Brazil, my husband’s country. My husband hadn’t had a lot of practice dancing at parties and was a bit nervous, and Alicia put him at ease and worked with us to create a special list of his favorite songs that she could play if he ever seemed a little less engaged in the dancing. He ended up spending the entire night on the dance floor; this was pretty much the first time he had danced in public in his life. We have Alicia to thank for making him so comfortable. And of course, the guests loved the music too. They thought it was really different from typical wedding music, and the dance floor got so crowded that my husband and I had to push our table out of the way. It was a fantastic night.
I will also say that Alicia is a friendly and laid-back person and is a great presence to have at your wedding and in those stressful months before the party. She communicates very well and clearly put a lot of work into making it a very special night for us. Thank you, Alicia!” — Diana Solomon
“You were so absolutely amazing! I truly can’t begin to thank you for such an amazing night. You without a doubt had the dance floor just crazy…until the cops came…but still after that we got some good time in!
So many people have come up to me to tell me how wonderful you were!!! I received so many amazing comments not only to your music selection but to you as a person – that you were so nice and looked like you were enjoying everything as well! Everyone just loved you!” — Dina Mansour
