Joe Nardi is a talented and experienced wedding DJ who can make your wedding the day you always dreamed of!

So who is Joe Nardi? Chances are you've heard him at a Wedding you've attended, a Chicago nightclub you have visited, or on the airwaves of Chicago's B96 throughout the 90's and early 2000's. You may have even heard him on the air during the B96 Eddie and Jobo morning show where Joe would often be sent out on the streets performing crazy stunts.

Joe "NAW-T-BOY" Nardi is known for his unique style of mixing and has been igniting dance floors since 1988, just as he will in your Chicago wedding! As many DJ's come and go, Joe "NAW-T-BOY" Nardi has proven the ability to change with the times, as he continues to be an innovator of the Chicago Dance Music Scene.

Joe's big break came back in 1993 when he was a finalist of the B96 Chicago Mixer Search in which he was 1 of 6 finalists out of more than 5000 applicants. This secured Joe a spot on the Chicago B96 Weekend Street Mix where he resided for over 10 years. In 2000 Joe brought his Mix show to a National Level with his syndicated Mix Show. This Mix show could be heard in Clothing Stores, Restaurants, and on Comcast Cable, and DirectTV.

Throughout his DJ career Joe Nardi has created some of Chicago's most legendary mixtape series including Afterhours (It's 5AM do you know where your children are?), Heart Attack, Freestyles Most Wanted, Energy Anthems, and Club Anthems, just to name a few. While most of his weekends these days consist of DJing some of the most elite weddings in the Chicago area, you can also find Joe at many area Clubs and Lounges. Currently these include Draft Car Chicago, Gibsons Steak House in Oak Brook, the V-Lounge in Addison, and Cafe Baciami in Elmwood Park, along with many other guest spots throughout the year.

Joe Nardi is best known for his blend of Old School and New School Mixes. While many of today's DJ's will just play the current TOP 40 hits, Joe Nardi will take you on a journey exploring many genres from today and yesterday. This keeps the dance floor fresh and the energy level at an all-time high throughout the night and never gets boring. Regardless of what style or theme your wedding is, you can trust Joe to be the best Chicago wedding DJ for your event.
