Everlasting Sounds was absolutely everything you could look for in a DJ. They operate a little differently from a traditional wedding DJ - when you book Everlasting Sounds, you are booking a team of DJs, one male and one female. Why does it matter you ask? Trust me... it makes a world of difference!
For our wedding we had Kristi and Thaddeus as our wedding DJs - who were incredible. I'll start my review from the beginning, music:
1) Music - Everlasting Sounds can taylor your wedding playlists to whatever you want. They give you a link where you can send it out to your wedding guests and ask for their choices of songs and a separate link where you can make requests for must play songs, and do not play songs. They have a meeting with you about a month before the wedding where you talk about first dance song, cake cutting song, and anything else special you might be doing.
2) Ceremony - We booked Everlasting Sounds to coordinate all our ceremony music as well. It was a seamless and easy addition. Their timing for everything was perfect.
3) MCing - The beauty of hiring a team of DJs instead of just one, you have one that is dedicated as the MC and one is in charge of the music. You have one that can go and grab Dad for the father-daughter dance while the other is playing music - instead of one guy, chained to a table, announcing 'Now where's dad?'
4) Enhanced experience for our guests - Everlasting Sounds comes complete with lighting on the dance floor, lighting options for decor, voiceovers for music, monograms on the wall, subwoofers to enhance the music and even other surprises I had never heard of. All are included in different packages so you aren't getting nickeled and dimed through out the entire process.
We had a ton of compliments on the music selections, the flow of the reception and the party. Everlasting Sounds was able to keep my guests up and having a great time the entire evening! I would fully endorse them to any couple!
Randy and Jodi at Everlasting Sounds are outstanding people who truly care about making your day special.
When we first met with them we knew they would be the DJ we would go with, not only because of their professionalism but their desire to assist with our entire day. They make sure the timeline is being followed and make sure the logistics are going smoothly without ever letting you know there was something wrong. They make sure you always have a drink (of your choice they ask this in your consult) in your hand. They essentially help you host your wedding, making announcements, welcoming your guests, taking their coats and directing people to their seats. They made sure when specific songs/dances were to be done that the people who needed to be in the room were there (nothing like the father/daughter dance and your dad can't be found). I personally am so grateful that I had their help, when things got hectic they took care of it and it was nice to have someone we can trust, who knows what to do to take charge. We highly recommend them for any event, a DJ can make or break your party and they made our not only a hit, but personal and special!
Randy and Jodi are amazing!! Not only are they a DJ service, they coordinate your whole reception! I look back now on my wedding reception and I have NO idea how i would have coordinated it all by myself! They played the music, got drinks for everyone, had everyone in place where they need to be and it went so smooth I still can't believe it. This company is absolutely amazing!
We had Randy and Jodi for our DJs. They were very nice and outgoing. They never made us feel uncomfortable or rushed in making our decision with them. Randy was always quick to answer our questions and whenever we needed him, he was there. If we needed a song, he would quickly add it or if we needed suggestions he provided excellent ones. In describing how we wanted our setup Randy and Jodi both were quick to accommodate us and add valid suggestions.
On the day of the wedding the setup was absolutely gorgeous. We had the 6-point drop ceiling (which looked amazing) and we had up-lighting that just accented the room. Randy and Jodi were also very timely and kept everything on time. They were excellent on the mic and they blended the music very well. You could tell no one felt uncomfortable and they were able to play the room. Although our families weren't much of dancers they were able to get them out there having a good time. We highly recommend them and trust us you can't go wrong in choosing them.
Thank you so much Randy & Jodi!

I have been to several weddings since my own, and my husband and I have discussed many times that using Everlasting Sounds was the best investment of our wedding day (next to the photographer capturing the day on film). Randy and Jodi were absolutely amazing in making our entire day run as smooth as possible. Randy was incredibly helpful in setting up our lighting and making personal accommodations for us. Jodi worked hand-in-hand with Randy in coordinating the entire ceremony and reception. The 2 of them have such a system down and work together so well, the entire day was absolutely seamless. I was worried about not having a wedding planner, as it was not in my budget, but Jodi was essentially my wedding day planner and I wouldn't have wanted it done an other way. It blew me away that they even had a back up garter for my husband to throw when the first one got stuck on a rafter! Randy and Jodi were so in tune with my husband and I through the entire day/night, we had no worries about the way the day was moving. Since my husband and I have been to several weddings since, we have really decided that if we ever had to do it again, the DJ is one of the most important pieces of the day, as they are the ones that keep the party going, but not rushed, keep the guests having fun, no boring moments or awkward silences. And that is absolutely what Everlasting Sounds did for us. I can't thank them enough for our flawless day!
Randy and Jodi did a fantastic job at providing DJ services for our wedding.
They went way beyond that, however. They not only provided exceptional music, but they were there to assure that our event went off without any issue. They succeeded.
We had a great day and they were a big reason for that.
Thank you very much for being part of our special day!

I worked with Randy and Jodi for my recent wedding and was blown away by their service!! Not only do they provide awesome music throughout the reception, but they leave no stone unturned when it comes to making sure the entire night flows smoothly. The lighting they provided was beautiful and exactly what we wanted and more. In our final meeting, they made sure we knew how to cut the cake correctly and begin our first dance. Our first dances were perfect. They made sure my husband and I were exactly where we needed to be at any point in the evening. The night went off without a hitch and our wedding was PERFECT!! Our guests haven't stopped talking about what an awesome party it was, largely in part to Everlasting Sounds!! It wouldn't have been the same without them!!
My husband and I got married a few months ago and looking back on our big day, I can honesty say that the reason why the day ran so smoothly was because of the dedicated team of DJs from Everlasting Sounds (Thaddeus and Christine). Without hesitation, they tackled every issue that arose. One way that I know they did their job well is that as the bride, I have absolutely no idea IF there were any issues with the flow of the day. They took charge and made things happen when they needed to happen. Not only that, they were a key reason why communication amongst the vendors was effective. They also understood our vision for the reception festivities, not to mention that the music kept people engaged and on the dance floor the entire night. Beyond the actual day, our DJ team helped ease the stress of wedding planning. It truly was a blessing to meet with our DJs a few months before the wedding to go over our schedule of the day and the type of music we preferred. In that meeting, there were so many details that hadn't crossed our minds, so it was great to have two people to discuss details with that KNOW what works and what doesn't. I remember leaving our initial meeting and thinking, wow, what a relief that we will have such an awesome, genuine team helping the day run smoothly. They are quite the amazing team that went above and beyond our expectations.
Randy and Jody were absolutely amazing! At first I was not looking for a DJ only for lighting, but through the entire process they are the one thing I could not live without if I had to go back in time and change my wedding. They were the best choice I could have made. Jody made sure everything was running smoothly and really made me feel like I had nothing to worry about. Randy did a great job editing together our crazy playlist with all the special request songs that we had. The lighting that they did really set my venue over the top. Do not even bother looking anywhere other than Everlasting Sounds for your wedding day needs. You will not regret it!
Randy and Jodi did an amazing job! They came highly recommended by friends of ours and we couldn't have been happier. They kept the night on course while we were running around trying to see all 200 of our guests. Jodi even made sure the cookies on our dessert table came out of the packages before anyone arrived when she saw they were not. This was not something she needed to do but we love her for it!! We mostly left the music up to them and they kept the dance floor full!! The night would not have been so smooth and enjoyable without them. We couldn't have asked for better DJ's and highly recommend them.
The DJ was one of the last things that I booked for our wedding. We found Everlasting Sounds and booked about 3 ½ months before our wedding. My Mom went with me to the first meeting and we both left feeling the most positive about the wedding than we had throughout the entire planning process. We were able to select all of the music ahead of time online. It was great to get the music choices out of the way when we had time to work on it.
The most amazing thing about Everlasting Sounds is that they are much more than a DJ, they are a full service. Thaddeus and Christine were the DJ pair for our wedding and they were amazing. More than we could have ever hoped for. Christine was basically like a day of planner and made the whole day go smoothly. They helped fix hair during pictures, they played the music we selected for our ceremony, they managed the schedule of the reception, etc. (I could keep listing for a while because they wear so many hats). Christine made sure to clarify all the questions the week before, and everything went perfectly. Because of the exceptional service they provided I was able to relax and enjoy my wedding day.
I would definitely recommend Everlasting Sounds, and especially Thaddeus and Christine!
Corey and LeAnn did an astounding job!! I could of not been more pleased on my wedding day. Guests after the wedding continuously told me how great the music was. Everyone was on the dance floor moving and the music was accommodating to all the guests. LeAnn was very helpful in organizing and making sure everything ran smoothly. She made little details important such as cake cutting and first dance moves for photos. Even in preparation for the wedding, I was asked if I needed anything and felt very stress free. The decor they provided was absolutely beautiful with the pin lighting and up wall lighting. They really transformed the room to make it look exactly like my vision. I definitely recommend this vendor!! My experience was fantastic.
Everyone at Everlasting Sounds was so great during this entire process. Our initial meeting with Randy sold us instantly because he is extremely flexible and laid back, yet very professional. John and LeAnn were our DJ's for the evening and they were AMAZING! John kept things moving wonderfully and was so flexible and easy going. LeAnn did an amazing job keeping me updated throughout the night and always had everyone ready to go when they were needed (i.e., father of the bride, mother of the groom, etc.) I cannot say enough positive things about Everlasting Sounds and would absolutely recommend them to anyone!
Jennifer & Sean from Everlasting Sounds did a great job at our wedding reception. They were friendly, organized & fun! Our evening began a bit hectic and they helped to make everything go very smooth. I also recommend this company because of the pre-meeting we had and the ease of choosing the music using their online system.
Thaddeus and Christy are great!!! From day one I knew we were in good hands with this duo. They listened to what we wanted for the atmosphere and feel of our reception and they delivered with flying colors, the dance floor always had people on it! They were also good as advising on our song choices to ensure we were in the right direction and feel for both ceremony and reception. I would recommend them and anyone else with Everlasting Sounds to future couples for their ceremony and reception music needs.
Randy Leichman made quite an impact when we were searching for a DJ. Almost immediately, we were sold on his genuineness, sincerity and passion for this business. The cost was in the upper range of our budget, but it was an absolute no brainer to make the decision to work with Everlasting Sounds. There are a team of hand selected DJ’s that work for ES and we ended up working with John and Jodi Barnhill, who were absolutely fabulous. They were great to work with and only added to our excitement as we discussed our playlist, how to cut the cake and entrance music. John and Jodi coordinated the entire event and were absolutely a crowd-pleaser, we had so many compliments from our guests and it was truly a night to remember because of them. We want to thank everyone at Everlasting Sounds for making our reception a night that we will always cherish and a party that will live on in history for our friends and family :)
I cannot express my gratitude for what Randy and Jodi did. They went above and beyond to make might night everything I envisioned it to be. Jodi thank you for helping with my bustle and calming me during my melt down. When I came in to finalize my music, I was not sure on a lot of what needed to get done. They reassured me, walked me through and discussed it to where I knew at that point I had picked the right DJ. You are not only DJ's, you make it personal and really care about your bride and groom. At the reception they coordinated everything keeping everyone and everything going. Making sure my parents knew where and when they had to be somewhere, which that in itself was a chore. As we arrived, they brought us our first drinks. I felt so relaxed knowing my guest were well taken care of thanks to Randy and Jodi. My guest loved the variety of music. You kept the party going all night. I actually had people tell me that it was nice to attend a wedding where you could understand everything the DJ was saying. I actually had two DJ's at my wedding as guest who said they did a great job. The lighting on my cake made it just POP! I feel we could not have made a better choice. Thanks again for everything you did. Brides if you want the best DJ's in town, you need to get Everlasting Sounds!!!!
We used everlasting sounds for our sept. 6th wedding. We had Randy and Jodi. They were amazing. They kept everything moving right along and kept everything and everyone on track. Jodi was amazing getting everyone organized and ready for what was coming next. And they handled some unexpected problems toward the end I the night quickly. They were worth every penny! Best choice in the area!
Everlasting Sounds recently DJed at our wedding in Cincinnati - Jodi and Randy did a fantastic job. My husband and I are very laid back individuals and we wanted our wedding to reflect that. We love music but weren't interested in the loud, over-the-top, take over your wedding type of DJ. From the first meeting, Randy understood exactly what ambiance we were shooting for and he and Jodi were spot on at the wedding. They were very helpful in keeping the wedding moving, making sure toasts, dances and even the blessing were right on time, all without making my husband or I feel pressured or rushed. They kept the dance floor packed without once playing a song we didn't want to hear. I would definitely recommend Everlasting Sounds for anyone interested in a quality DJ for their wedding!
Everlasting Sounds was so much more than we could have ever imagined in a DJ for our wedding! The quality of service they provided was outstanding. They made us feel that we were not only valued customers, but their sole focus throughout the whole planning process and wedding itself. Christine and Thaddeus catered to our guests in a fun, inviting way that made the night so entertaining! What sets Everlasting Sounds apart from all other DJs is that they work in male and female couples, usually husband and wife. The males run the DJ table while the females amazingly act as the wedding coordinators. The females ensure every member of the bridal party is where they need to be at the right time, make sure everyone is ready before it is time for their dances( first dance, father-bride dance, mother-groom dance, etc.), and ensures the whole night runs smoothly. Another factor that stands out from the rest is that Everlasting Sounds does the lighting too, and in a very reasonably priced manner. This saved us the hassle of having to book a separate vendor for the lighting alone. When I walked into the venue after it was all setup, I couldn't believe it was the same ballroom! The lighting they created brought such a beautifully romantic and enchanting feel to our venue. They turned my vision into reality and gave us our dream wedding reception. Everlasting Sounds remained highly professional while getting to know us as a couple on a personal level in order to meet our specific needs and create an amazing wedding reception which reflected us perfectly. I would highly recommend Everlasting Sounds for any wedding or social event!
