There's a reason Soundwaves entertainment has been voted "best of" on the Knot for five years in a row! We worked with Chris and he truly delivered. We loved that we could utilize a planning website to designate which songs we absolutely wanted, some that would be good if there... Read More was time, and which songs to not play at all. He took the time to meet with us personally and run through the wedding day timeline and discuss everything that should happen. We also added on a photo booth package which was not only affordable but one of the better booths I've seen - instead of a small closed-in space, there was a large backdrop (that we could choose) and SO MANY PROPS! people really loved this! We also received all of the photo booth photos after the wedding to share with our guests. The entertainment that Chris and his wife provided on our wedding day went just as planned- from the ceremony music to the last dance! He also threw in some songs that although we didn't request, they got everyone up on the dance floor. Our guests had a wonderful time at our wedding and so did we, and much of that is due to Soundwaves Entertainment. I would absolutely book with them again!

I had the pleasure of working with Chris Pyle (the owner of Soundwaves) for my wedding at Stone Mill Inn on May 6, 2017. Chris was extremely professional and adaptable to all of my requests for my wedding day. One of the most important aspects of my wedding was my live... Read More ceremony music my brothers performed. Chris was able to provide his PA system with all the right hookups and equipment needed to provide the perfect sound for my outside wedding ceremony. (My one brother went to a conservatory for piano performance, and the other has his own CD's on iTunes. They both agreed that Chris provided everything needed to make the sound perfect for my day!) My family is so very pleased by everything. The day of my wedding, my venue even had to move my ceremony to be under the tent due to rain last minute. Chris was able to adapt to last minute changes the day of and had everything perfect for my ceremony and reception. He sets up everything, no need to stress about your music the day of your wedding if you go with Soundwaves Entertainment. In addition, Chris is extremely quick to respond to all e-mails regarding any questions about music throughout your wedding planning process. I never had to wait more than a couple of hours until I received a response from him. Out of all of my vendors I used, Chris was the most professional in his response time. I really appreciated this. Overall, I feel as though my experienced with Soundwaves was wonderful! I picked the right DJ for my wedding. Chris made all my guests feel comfortable on the dance floor, and got everyone up and dancing even though we had a dry wedding reception. He makes the flow of your reception easy. You don't even have to worry about what is coming next! From announcing the toasts, to cake cutting... etc. If you are looking for a professional DJ to handle every aspect of your wedding from your ceremony, cocktail hour music, and reception, Soundwaves will do a wonderful job on your wedding day! Chris was worth every penney! If I had to do it all again, I would hire Soundwaves Entertainment in a heartbeat.

Soundwaves is great! Our DJ, Craig, was awesome. He played the perfect mix of music that we were looking for and everyone had a blast on the dance floor. We could also tell that he really cared about doing a great job - he took the time to check in with us on some details when... Read More he arrived early to set up and he checked in a couple times throughout the wedding. Everything went smoothly and exactly according to our timeline. Could not have asked for a better DJ! Chris, the owner of Soundwaves, was a joy to work with as well. He made it so easy for us to plan our wedding from out of town (we live in Washington DC but had our wedding in PA). He gave us access to an online system to plan out all the details of our wedding and put together playlists. About a month before the wedding, we had a meeting with him and Craig to make sure we were all on the same page. Such a breeze to plan! I'd recommend Soundwaves to anyone!

Picking our DJ was the last big to-do we had, and we seriously lucked out with Chris and his team. Everything about their process was efficient and quick. We planned our wedding from Texas and their online tool made it so incredibly easy to map out every song for every moment.... Read More We never met them in person, and with only one phone call, Chris and Tony had everything perfectly laid out for the big day. And when the wedding finally came, Tony was so incredibly flexible and sweet! We had our fair share of hiccups, but Tony was fast to accomodate each of our new requests and changes. I was on the fence about including too many lights at the wedding, but the combination of the uplighting, the patterned light, the white lights, and the sound reactive colored lights through out the night, absolutely beautiful! Everyone was blown away, especially the little ones who loved to dance in the changing lights! Everything was better than I could have ever asked for. Thank you so much Chris and Tony!

I met Chris at a wedding vendor event to have the chance to meet him since reading raving reviews of his service.

Chris played the requested songs at the wedding and helped keep things moving. I am very happy with my choice and wouldn't go a different route if I did it all over.

Chris was amazing! First of all, he gave us an amazing deal on his services. For a young couple like my husband and I, it was really nice that he was so affordable for us. I was completely clueless about what ask for or include with music, dances, and lights. He walked me...

At the wedding Chris made sure ahead of time that he knew how to pronounce the names of everyone in our wedding party, even double checking right before introductions.
