Excellent service, great execution! I had the pleasure of working with Elite for my wedding a month ago. My DJ was Todd. I have nothing but great things to say about Todd and Craig. They are so profession and did everything to accommodate my wedding set up to make the day flow... Read More flawlessly. Todd was even able to accommodate a same day wedding song change for me without hesitation! If there was an issue, I had no idea. I later learn some family and guests may have cornered Todd to express feelings of this, that, and the other. When I tell you he handled them like a pro, I'm serious. I had no idea until wayyy later. Everything was great for my wedding. I highly recommend Elite for your wedding experience.

One word... Incredible!!! We highly recommend Elite Sounds for you professional DJ services. Our first meeting with Craig offered us insight into understanding the level of service they provide. They are more than just a warm body with preset playlist, microphone and mirror... Read More ball. We connected on many levels. From age, humor, recognition of how tempo influences our guest to gather on the dance floor. Knowing that Elite Sounds was partnered up with The Foundations Event Space's as their in-house DJ Company, they were knew exactly what was entailed with lighting and sound. This is a sense of comfort to a Bride and Groom to know they have professionals operating equipment what can be a stressful day. My wife gave me one task.... 'Find a DJ Company!' We could not of been more happy with our decision. Craig assigned Tim Gibson to our ceremony and after our second meeting we instantly connect. At that time I'm a sense of relief, and we were 3 weeks out from our wedding day! Our taste in music, understanding our guests and keeping tempo was our objectives. We requested all genres of music from Motown, 60's, 70's, Funk, Pop, Country, R&B, 90's Rap, 80's and modern day Dance Hits. Knowing that we would all ages at our reception our focus was how each person could connect a moment with a melody to create a memory. Wow, and did Tim do that! Grandparents cutting the rug with grandchildren with hits from their youthful days created fun filled energy throughout the room and venue. The early evening toe tapping became a four hour hip shaking dance party. Yes, I said 4 hours!!! Our guest rave about their experience with Tim, and how he connected with each one of them. The energy was so wonderful that we had 8 separate attempts of wedding crashers! Most crashers understandably would want a free drink, but they came to dance because they felt the energy in the room. Without Tim's level of experience, timing, understanding of tempo and flow from each age of guest on the dance floor... we would not of had the reception of a lifetime. Many guests were amazed at the song selection, how songs were mixed, (of which flooded memories from yester- years), the progression of how beat and that there was no low moments. He captured an audience that night, of which none wanted to leave or for it to end! We had one individual at our venue that hadn't danced within the past 5 years, and Tim was able to get both a slow and fast dance out of those penny loafers. Jen and I can't say enough great things about Elite Sounds, Craig and Tim. Don't go with just any DJ on the open market. Please read through each one of there review and you will see that your receiving an expert level service that you searching for. These are professionals that create memories of a lifetime thru music, energy and movement. Tim thank you again to allowing us to cherish this moment with wonderful memories.

Craig runs an incredible company. They provide so much, but mostly, provide peace of mind to a bride and groom looking to book a top notch DJ.

My fiancé and I had no idea where to start when picking a DJ for our ceremony and reception, and we lucked out completely when we chose to go with Elite Sounds. Craig was friendly and professional and was able to understand what I was looking for with my music when I hadn't... Read More been entirely sure myself. Mickey, the DJ Craig paired us with for the day, was great. We chose some songs we thought might be good for our crowd and Mickey was able to take our suggestions and really build on them. He read the guests at our wedding perfectly and knew what to play to keep them all dancing throughout the night (and my friends are not the typical dancing crowd). The entire process is easy, even for someone who isn't sure what they're doing, and when you have a million things you're trying to manage all in one day, not having to worry about what's going on with you're music is totally invaluable. I recommend both Elite Sounds and our specific DJ, Mickey highly.

Elite Sounds made our wedding so, so special. We had some very specific, unusual music requests for the ceremony, and our DJ, Todd, tracked them down and got us exactly what we wanted.

Elite Sounds was an easy choice for me because I am one of their DJs. I know the process that takes place behind the curtain for our clients.

I can't say enough great things about Elite Sounds - first of all, Craig is AWESOME and so on top of everything.

If you want your guests to dance, look no further than Tim Yach with Elite Sound. Our wedding reception flowed smoothly and once the dancing started, no one left the dance floor.

Working with Craig Loftis from Elite Sounds Entertainment Group and Ryan Guthrie (DJ) was so easy for the planning of my daughter’s wedding. My daughter decided to postpone her wedding in 2015. Six months later, the wedding was back on and rescheduled for November 4, 2016. The... Read More wedding venue was changed, which changed the entire theme of the wedding. Luckily, Craig had availability so we were able to continue working with Elite Sounds. Craig gives you a log on to go to their website and select songs that you would like to have played. You also fill in information online to build a timeline. This came in very handy for my venue and other vendors. Elite Sounds also has a photo booth that you can rent. Originally we had selected to use this, but decided to not use it at the new venue. Craig was very professional, explained everything to us, and made scheduling meetings a breeze. Ryan, our DJ for the day, was awesome! You see, my daughter and her fiance DO NOT like to dance. Ryan worked with my daughter to get the general idea of what she and her fiance liked for music. They worked out all of the ceremony music including prelude/recessional/postlude. We told Ryan we didn’t know what to have for the cocktail hour or dinner, so he just did his own thing. Cocktail hour and dinner was awesome music as it was easy for people to listen to the music but also have conversations. Ryan played all of the music that my daughter had requested and he was extremely personable to our guests. We absolutely would recommend Elite Sounds and especially Ryan for your event. Definitely 6 stars!

Our experience started with Craig, who was probably the most professional vendor we worked with throughout the whole planning process. We had meetings set up with two other DJs and a band after our meeting with Craig, and we canceled them because we knew we wouldn't find anyone... Read More better than Elite Sounds. Throughout the process Craig was flexible, patient, helpful (had great lighting recommendations!) and just fun to work with. Mike was the DJ at our event and he was AWESOME. Several weeks after our wedding, we're still getting comments from people about how fun our reception was. He found a way to balance our love of 90s hip-hop with the Motown tunes that our parents love. He made the dancefloor work for everyone. He went over the top for us - including renting a tux and finding my parents' hard-to-find first dance song!
