As a former wedding planner, I knew that entertainment was a make or break element at any event. Choosing the right DJ was extremely important to us, as we wanted to ensure everyone had a great & memorable time. And Jay Friese from Signature Sounds did not disappoint. From... Read More start to finish, Jay made us feel comfortable and ensured us that we would be well taken care of. We met with him numerous times to go over the details & questions, which I thought was a testament to how detail oriented he is and how much he invests in each event he does. He likes to dig deep and really get to know the couples that he works with. He was even kind enough to drive an hour away to our venue just to do a walkthrough with us. That is the kind of service every bride & groom looks for. From the moment he started playing music at the reception, the dance floor was PACKED. I was even singing and dancing from my seat during dinner. No one ever left the dance floor because we were having so much fun. Jay really knows how to read a crowd and give the people what they want! We felt completely comfortable giving Jay the creative freedom over the music because we knew he understood exactly what we were looking for, and he did. Jay provided our uplighting as well. The uplighting was beautiful and was a perfect accent to the room. They use great, high-quality lighting. He also provided our Photo Booth as well which was a huge hit! They gave everyone a copy of their photos, as well as put together a book for Trevor & I that had everyone’s photos in it with little notes from each guest under their picture. We were even pleasantly surprised at the quality of the Photo Booth book! It was a beautiful faux-leather album with laminated pages. And we didn't even have to wait for it- it was ready for us to take at the end of the night! Jay really goes above and beyond to make sure that every detail is taken care of to the standards & expectations of his clients. I have worked with countless DJ's throughout my time as a wedding planner, and would highly recommend him and his team in a heartbeat. Thank you Signature Sounds!!! Kristen & Trevor

We seriously couldn't have hired a better DJ for our wedding! From our very first initial meeting to our wedding day, Jay was easy going, organized, and energetic. His confidence was so infectious that we would leave every meeting even more excited for our big day. Being a... Read More former club DJ myself, my expectations were pretty high. Needless to say Jay blew it out of the park. From the uplighting to his energetic mixing, everything was next level. His ability to read the crowd was some of the best I've ever seen. Perfect mixes and mash ups that kept literally everyone on the dance floor dancing and singing along all night. The dinner music was also a highlight for us. Rather than your traditional jazzy dinner fluff, Jay played down tempo, acoustic renditions of top hits that guests immediately recognized, loved and sang along to. At multiple times during open dance floor, his custom mash ups played and blew me away. I would give Jay a cheers, and Jay would wink back. It was awesome to see him having just as much fun as our guests– you can tell the man genuinely loves his job. I cant recommend Jay enough and cant imagine our wedding day without him there. Thanks for everything Jay!!

Working with Jay Friese (Signature Sounds and Lighting) was a wonderful experience start to finish. He is super organized and gathers tons of information to ensure that the event runs smoothly and to your satisfaction. Jay asked questions I never would have even thought of and... Read More was able to give lots of recommendations about other vendors and pieces of the wedding planning process. He is a true professional in this industry. We were able to find the perfect acoustic cover version of our song so that it was appropriate for our first dance. His transitions are seamless! Jay is truly an artist at what he does. Usually when you are at a wedding, the dance floor has to warm up a little bit before people get moving. My husband and I were thrilled to see that the dance floor was PACKED immediately after dinner, when the "dancing" portion had just begun! Jay knows exactly how to make the music flow for a wedding to appeal to the guests (i.e. playing more classic tunes early on so that the older crowd can enjoy it and playing more modern beats later in the evening for the younger crowd). The dance floor was seriously full all night long and everyone commented on how amazing the DJ was, which we already knew! As a bride with a budget, I know that you have to prioritize each vendor and decision you make throughout the planning process, but you cannot compromise on a quality DJ! The DJ sets the vibe at your wedding and plays a big role in ensuring that you and your guests are having an incredible time. I would absolutely hire Signature Sounds again for a stress-free, smooth and crazy fun time!
