Selective Sound was awesome! Choosing a DJ was a bit nerve-wracking because it can make or break a wedding , but Jay-R and our DJ, Marcus were phenomenal! Jay-R was always very responsive and so helpful when it came to other needs like lighting or a guitarist. Our guests cant stop raving about DJ Marcus! Our dancefloor was packed the whole night! I highly recommend Selective Sound!!
Selective sound entertainment was amazing from start to beginning. From the moment we contacted them in regards to doing our wedding, to the meetings leading up to the wedding and finally them DJing our wedding, I couldn't be happier! Brian S. was our DJ and I cannot say enough good things about him and his professionalism! He knew exactly what he was doing and made our wedding go beyond smooth! Everyone was dancing the entire night and the dance floor was never empty!
Wow, I don't even know where to start. We had Patrick as our DJ for our wedding last month. Leading up to the wedding day, Patrick was very hands off during the months we were the most busy. Patrick communicated very well during the few months leading up to the ceremony (when details were finalized). He went above and beyond for us in SO many ways. To start, he helped our pastor with the sound system and was able to work with all of our vendors to ensure the schedule, timing, and sound was right. The best part about it all is that our dance floor was packed all night, I mean PACKED. Our photographer said she couldn't get many pictures because it was so packed! We had many different age groups represented but Patrick found a way to tie everyone in the whole night. (we paid for shuttle buses to take people to the hotel starting at 9:45 and NO ONE left until 11!) Our wedding guests are still raving about our DJ and how awesome he was. They were even chanting "one more song!" once the reception was over! We truly had the best night ever and that's a huge thanks to Patrick! Thank you Selective Sound, we will DEFINITELY be recommending you in the future!
As SSE says, they are not just a DJ company. We worked with Jay R who planned the NYE wedding of our dreams and brought our vision to life. He gave us suggestions (respective to our budget) of services to utilize to make our wedding unique and exactly what we wanted. We used 2 70 inch TV's for SocialCast- a program where guests can hashtag photos and they will then be displayed on the TVs. We also used the TV's to live stream the ball drop. Lastly, SSE provided confetti cannons for the midnight celebration. This was truly a production and work of art. We had sound technicians, someone to run the TV's and of course our DJ/MC Marcus. I could tell all staff were prepped and organized and knew exactly what to do when it came to our wedding. DJ Marcus understood the age and vibe of the crowd but also did a phenomenal job pleasing our guests with their song requests. Marcus and the entire staff was very professional and prepared. I would recommend SSE, Marcus, and Jay R to anyone.
When we first started planning our wedding, the DJ & videographer were two of the most important parts for me, so we had phone interviews with a TON of companies. After talking to Jay R, it was a no brainer. He answered all of our questions and brought things up we had never even thought of. Jay R was also our DJ the day of & seemed to understand exactly what I wanted without me having to say much at all! I was more laid back about everything which could have gone badly if we didn't have such an amazing DJ. I was planning my wedding from out of town & after hiring them we had several planning calls before the big day. The day of, Jay R worked with my cousin/officiant & families through so many details that I never even thought of and made it unbelievably stress free. He was so awesome at keeping everything on track during the reception. I can't say enough positive things and we are still getting compliments on how wonderful everything was and our awesome DJ. We also used Selective Sound for uplighting & videography. Uplighting was gorgeous in the City View Room at Windows on the River. Matt was our main videographer and he was so amazing as well. Him & my photographer bonded right away and worked together to get some incredible shots. I can't wait to see the finished product. I've learned over the past year that planning a wedding is insanely stressful, but if you want to take some of that stress away, Selective Sound is your best choice :)
Our DJ for our event was JR and I cannot say enough good things about him or the service that he provided. From the moment we signed our contract through the end of the reception (and even now!) he has been amazing. His communication back and forth kept us calm in even the craziest of times and the services he provided were above and beyond what we ever thought we would have at our wedding. The first service was DJ and boy did he have everyone dancing! He had the crowd going wild from the moment the dance floor opened until the night ended! Our guests were all asking who our DJ was - before the wedding was even over! The second service was our uplighting - if I could post pictures, you would see the amazing job he did transforming our venue. To top off all this beautiful decor he provided us with the much sought after mirror photo booth - which was a huge hit and produced absolutely awesome memories. The kicker of the night was the sparkular display which was perfectly timed and had the crowd roaring all night. Not only is SSE amazing to work with but he is easy and will make sure that you get through all the necessary evils of a wedding while still making sure you have an awesome time! I wish we could re-do our wedding all over again and we would hire JR and SSE in a heart beat!
Book selective sounds! You will be blown away! From the very beginning of planning Jay-R was very good to work with. He was responsive and always helpful. We booked wth selective sounds before we booked our venue lol! We know the entertainment is a HUGE part of receptions and they definitely made ours AMAZING. Our dj was Devin M. and we really enjoyed having him at our wedding. He followed my crazy playlists as well as stepped in and made sure things ran on time and moved along. He was very interactive with our guests and I really liked that. We chose the let's party option and I think all wedding receptions should! After all you want people to have fun and out on the dance floor. The uplighting, pin spot, light programming and gobo were all so amazing. I was in awe when I walked into our reception. Selective sounds did such a great job and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone! I promise you it's worth it. I am so thankful I found them and booked them. They really made our wedding day special. Thank you
I can't say enough about SSE and I am glad we chose them to help celebrate our day. Jay r was our original contact and he helped us feel comfortable about our choice. He was available at any time to ask questions and continued to be in contact with us up until we finally met with our dj. DJ Brian was amazing! He was so helpful when setting up our big day and we felt comfortable right away. We knew we were putting our wedding in good hands. He worked well with the other vendors and his song choices were on point. Our dance floor was full all night and the uplighting looked great. The day went smoothly and he made sure our day was special!
We worked with DJ Marcus for our big day and couldn’t have been happier! Marcus was completely professional from the get-go. We asked for a wide array of music selections and he delivered big time. His vinyl spins kept the dance floor busy and his transitions are impressive. Truth be told, Marcus earned an extra tip by the end of the night because everyone was so impressed. DJ Marcus is the man!
AMAZING! Recently had a wedding and Jay R and his MC Rod, had everyone on the dance floor from the beginning to the end. The dance floor was never empty. Amazing duo. Jay R also married us and made me feel very relaxed. Everyone talks about how awesome the wedding was due to the the DJ! Highly recommend!
Jay R and DJ Danny are the best! Jay R was very responsive and professional from the very beginning. DJ Danny did my MOH's wedding and he was fantastic then so I knew I was in good hands! And he did not disappoint. I can't say enough good things about him. From the entire planning process to the day of the wedding , he was so wonderful to work with. SO glad we chose to go with SSE for our DJ needs!!
Jay r is awesome! Our DJ (another vendor) bailed on us 3 weeks before our wedding and after reaching out to 12 other DJs to find a replacement Jay r and Selective Sound stood out against all of the other options that we met with. Definitely a great choice! All of our guests danced all night long! We heard all of our favorite songs! The lighting was an awesome addition and the photo booth was a great way for us to remember the fun that everyone had! Many of our guests commented that this was the best wedding ever and I know that that was partly due to the awesome music that played throughout the night! Great job Jay r!! Thank you!!
Choosing SSE was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process. Jay-R was our DJ and was PHENOMENAL through out the entire process. The wedding experience and advice Jay-R offered was priceless and extremely useful. On our wedding day, everything was perfect and as promised. He ensured our wedding guests were entertained and engaged. He also ensured we stuck to our timeline so that the night ran smoothly. Our photo-booth attendant did an amazing job organizing the booth and our keepsake photo album was perfect! Once the dance floor was open for the night, it was PACKED! The music Jay-R played was amazing and kept the party going, even until the very last song. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose SSE every time, without hesitation! Thank you SSE and Jay-R for helping make our big day absolutely perfect!
Selective Sound is a phenomenal entertainment company! Patrick was our DJ, and he was much more than that! Not only did he play music to get people dancing, but he also had the supplies and skills to fix my wedding dress! He is so much more than a DJ, he should be hired to deal with any issues that may arise at weddings :). We shopped around and chose Selective Sound because I had a great initial conversation with Jay. The company offers a lot, is professional and is very thorough. I can say with 100% confidence that you will not go wrong choosing them!!!
Selective Sound did a great job at our wedding. Marcus was fantastic. My cousin is an event planner in Nashville and said he was one of the best DJs she has even seen. The dance floor was never empty.
We had such a great experience with Selective Sound!! Jay R was so helpful throughout the whole process and responded to all my emails right away! Marcus was a great DJ to work with and very professional! The photo booth was such a big hit at our wedding! I would recommend them to anyone getting married!
We loved Selective Sound from the very beginning. From our first meeting with Jay R, we knew this was the company we wanted to go with for our wedding. He promised to pair us with the best DJ, most compatible to us and our wedding. He paired us with Marcus and he was awesome! We are so happy with how everything turned out. Marcus kept us on track during the reception and kept everyone out on the dance floor until the very end.
Selective Sound was recommended to us by a friend and with reason. My wife and I just got married this past July in Akron but we live in Chicago and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Jay R and the crew did a great job from beginning to end help us organize everything with meetings over the phone emails and reminders so we would not miss a step. DJ Danny and the crew that did the ceremony arrived promptly, were professional, worked extremely well with all the other vendors, had state of the art equipment and most importantly kept the party going all the way until the end, our dance floor was never empty.
Selective Sound was a wonderful company to work with! They were very professional, and a lot of fun to work with. They offered us more options for the dj, lighting, photobooth, etc., that we could never think of! DJ Brian did a fantastic job of keeping up with our high energy guests. He was ready to go well before guests starting arriving and played fantastic music all night starting at 5 and ending at midnight. The wireless lighting that Jay R hooked us up with was incredible. The room started out as purple, changed to blue and pink for mother son and father daughter dance, then kept changing throughout the night to match the music. We are beyond happy that we decided to to with Selective Sound!!
I love this company! Selective Sound is so professional and organized. I never had to worry about anything. The initial meeting was great, we met with Jay R. He was so personable and knowledgeable about all facets of the business. We did our uplighting, DJ, photobooth, & videographer through them. We could not have made a better choice. Everyone was super professional and on time. Anytime I had a question, I received an email within a few hours, if it was late at night, by mid-morning the next day. The photobooth and videographer worked like a well oiled machine. No worries for this bride! We received the book of the photos that night and I'm sure the video will be just as wonderful as everything else. Our DJ Marcus, was absolutely amazing. He was so professional and organized. Anyone planning a wedding knows how hectic it can be, this was one area that I did not have to worry about. Marcus had everything taken care of and I could focus on my guests. He kept the party going and definitely knows how to read a crowd. My daughter's sweet sixteen is coming up and I would definitely call them again for her party. If you are looking for one (or several) thing(s) to check off of your list, go with Selective Sound. You will not have to worry about the organization, professionalism or quality of their work. They do it all.
From beginning to end, Jay R made sure we were taken great care of. His quick replies, his reminders to keep the ball rolling and his recommendations made the planning process so easy. Top notch professionalism. The day of, Jay R and his staff made sure our day was perfect. Our guests had a blast and our tent and surrounding areas were lit up beautifully. What more could you ask for? Our guests are still complimenting on how much fun they had- and we have Jay R and the Selective Sound team to thank for that!
The music was AMAZING the entire night. Several people commented that they have never seen a dance floor more packed in their whole life. Selective Sound made our New Years Wedding one to remember by doing an amazing half hour by half hour count down.
I highly recommend Selective Sound. We hired them mainly as a DJ, but also added on their lighting package, ceremony sound package, and photobooth. All aspects of their services were awesome! Jay R was very responsive and helpful throughout the whole process; just having him coordinate and manage all the details will keep your mind at ease. Our DJ was Mike, and he was great as well! He took the time to meet us prior to the wedding to get to know our tastes, likes, and dislikes, and on the night of the wedding he was a fun DJ/MC! We had many guests mention how entertaining he was. Ask for him if you can!
Jay R did a great job making sure our guests didn't stop dancing! He listened to all of our ideas and made some great suggestions to add to our night. I would definitely recommend Jay R and Selective Sound!
Holy cow, Jay R was INCREDIBLE!! The dance floor was packed all night long. Our guests kept commenting on how awesome the party was and we didn't want it to end! Highly recommend Selective Sounds for your wedding. Amazing, amazing, amazing.
