We could not have asked for a better DJ! DJ Joe was fantastic at our wedding on May 9, 2014. All of our guests said the same.

Joe and Elite Sound Entertainment went above and beyond their duties as our DJs for our wedding. We are so glad we decided to go with them. Not only did they bring people to the dance floor with the way they set up our music selection but also we're so happy with the other... Read More services we received from them (dancing on the clouds, picture montage, etc). You can tell a person really loves what they do because it shows in their body of work. That was Joe and he was a dream to work with. He was quick with his responses (even at late hours of the night and his wife questioning who it was texting him lol .. think jake from state farm commercial). He made us feel at ease whenever we felt overwhelmed. Elite Sound Entertainment are very professional and made our day worry free. We can’t envision our special day with any other DJ company other than Elite Sound Entertainment! Book Joe, he's awesome! Book them, they're awesome!

When we asked our wedding photographer for a recommendation on a DJ, she instantly said not only Elite Sound but that we also had to book DJ Jay G - and she was absolutely right! From our first meeting it was clear that Jay was a professional and truly loves what he does and... Read More mixed music right there during the appointment to demonstrate his expertise. He instantly understood the kind of night we wanted and came with some great creative suggestions to enhance the experience. Never once were we thrown off by the fact that we couldn't pick more than a handful of songs to be played, as we had full trust in Jay that he would read the crowd and know exactly what to play to get our guests up on the dance floor. Jay is a true DJ and an artist - many of my guest said they felt like they were at a night club and not a wedding by the way in which he mixed songs! He was also great at communicating to us during the reception to ensure we were having a great night and that he was playing our few special songs, as well as to the crowd. DJ Jay G kept that dance floor packed! The music sets were so perfect, I'd love to have a full soundtrack of my wedding to play again and again...If you haven't booked Elite Sound and DJ Jay G yet for your wedding, what are you waiting for?!?!

Booking Jay as our DJ was 100% one of the best (if not THE best) decisions we made for our wedding!

We got so many compliments from guests regarding the music and I would absolutely make the same decision again if I had the opportunity. Go with Jay- he's amazing!!

Working with Elite Sound was one of the easiest parts of our planning process. From our initial meeting with Jay to our final meeting with Johnny Budz and Cory, everyone was laid back and attentive to what we were looking for. We were interested in playing a good variety of... Read More music genres and keeping our guests of all ages dancing and the guys definitely made this happen. The online profile we had available to pick our music was really helpful and allowed us to make changes for months leading up to the wedding. My sister made us a slideshow and Johnny worked with her to play the song she wanted without hesitation. My husband missed a song he wanted to hear while we were taking pictures and Johnny was more than willing to work the song in another time. Cory, our M.C. , did a great job keeping the flow of the wedding going and rounding up our large families for group photos. They both made great suggestions to us on the best way to keep the flow of the night going and they were right in every aspect. The only con we have is not all the songs on our "Must Play" list were played. This wouldn't have mattered so much to me except the 1 song my dad requested was on the list and I didn't realize it wasn't played in the craziness of the wedding day to ask for it to be played before the end of the night. All in all, we would definitely recommend Elite Sound Entertainment to everyone looking for a laid-back but professional group to make your party one to remember.

We would highly recommend Elite Sound Entertainment for your wedding. We worked with Lucas (MC) and Cory (DJ) and they provided us with a personalized wedding experience and incorporated everything we requested. Lucas was great to work with from the initial meeting, to... Read More planning the day (we used them for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception music) and listening to our ideas and given suggestions. They had also worked at our venue, Stone House at Stirling Ridge in the past which was a great benefit. They provided a great mix of music that kept everyone on the dance floor from the older guests to our group of friends (in their 20s). The MC/DJ is such an important part of the wedding and our biggest advice would be to go with Elite Sound and trust their experience but don't be afraid to voice your opinion because they really want to give you your perfect wedding.

Johnny Budz, Danny Gee and the team are exceptional. Our wedding could not have been more of a dream come true and these guys were the heart and sole of the party. John has such an incredible feel for the crowd and what music moves people on the dance floor. Danny gets the crowd... Read More going with his tremendous enthusiasm, and oh yeah the photo booth was AWESOME too -- our guests loved it! Our blue uplighting was a wonderful touch as well as it helped to turn our room into the winter wonderland that we had been dreaming about. Further, the ceremony musicians (piano and violin) were lovely and added such a nice element to the ceremony and cocktail hour. The process, from planning to execution was seamless and easy with Elite Sound. John is such a great guy and was there for us from day one to be a consultant of all things from his job to any questions we might have about the broader wedding given his years of experience. Early in our planning process, we were conflicted with regards to whether we wanted to have a band or DJ. We can now say, there is something about hearing the music as it is that makes it special. We found Elite after attending a close friend's wedding hosted by them and DJ'd by John, which absolutely rocked. We also remembered Johnny Budz from his days as radio DJ on KTU and Z-100 -- many great memories driving around with friends on weekends in high school or when home from college with great beats flowing. While we love those memories of sounds from the club, Elite knows how to cater to the entire crowd. The grandparents, parents and friends all raved about the party the next day as all felt included and connected to the event. The quick dance set in the beginning was a great move (a suggestion by John) as it got everyone pumped up before the first dance and in the mood to be on the dance floor for the rest of the night. We want to thank the entire team for the work they do and making our dreams come true. Our friends did not stop moving the whole night -- a high energy party to the max!

When we were thinking about music for our wedding we were pretty sure we wanted a DJ and one that was NOT going to play the chicken dance and force dances upon our wedding guests. We wanted to a DJ who would play music that fit to different ages and would keep everyone up on the... Read More floor with smooth transitions from song to song. We really wanted the night to flow well. We had met with one other DJ company and though they said they wouldn't do the chicken dance, we just didn't get a good sense of how the night would play out. I remembered being on the dance floor the whole night at my cousin's wedding in 2012 and reached out to her to find out it was Elite Sound. We met with DJ Dave Mondo and just from the initial meeting we were already amped up about how great the dance party was going to be at our wedding. Prior to the wedding we selected some songs so he could get a feel for what our style of music was. The only critique I have is that we had asked for a couple of songs to definitely be played that night and they weren't. We really didn't care that much and honestly didn't even notice until after the night was over. Our priority was that he kept our guests out on the dance floor. He made the judgment calls if a song would keep the people dancing or send them back to their seats. We trusted him and he delivered a night we will never forget. We also got the automated lighting and I had been afraid that it was unnecessary, but we were so glad that we did because it really enhanced the dance floor and added to the feel of the party. The floor was packed and guests kept telling us they hadn't danced that much at a wedding in a long time. If you are looking for a DJ who knows how to throw a great party, you have found him - Dave Mondo at Elite Sound.
