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 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.

Read More throughout the process, and we got the chance to clarify everything in a meeting the week before the wedding. The music was great throughout every part of the day, Tony was able to really find songs that were similar to our ideas and requests throughout the night. People always tell us our wedding was a great time! We did have one special request, which they were able to help us out with no problem! My husband and I are both musicians, and instead of doing a first dance, we performed a "first set." We had some equipment, but we needed microphones and a good sound system for the songs. Tony was able to provide microphones and we did a sound check before the ceremony to ensure everything would sound great. The performance itself went really well and I was thankful that Soundwaves was able to help us out! We also utilized their photobooth services, and Tony's wife and son were running that. The photobooth was a great hit with everyone, and we were able to get some really fun shots. They were able to accommodate couples as well as a huge group of my husband's family. Afterwards, we received a USB of all of the photos taken throughout the night. I highly recommend Soundwaves Entertainment for whatever event you may be planning, they were fantastic for mine!

Soundwaves Entertainment is a choice I would recommend for anyone uncertain about their wedding DJ options.

We worked closely with Chris Pyle and DJ Tony leading into the day, throughout the process I was put at ease with their professionalism and expertise. The planning tool on their website is a good feature to sort organize and customize. Tony was our day of DJ, very funny, smooth and fluent on the mic, he came up and asked how we were doing, when we were running behind on the timeline he presented options and worked with us on what we were looking to do. We took requests from the guests and he seamlessly blended them in, I especially liked how he grouped the songs for the flow of the night, it led to a really active dance floor, including some people who normally don't come out. During times of interaction Tony had a good rapport with us over the mic. The professionalism, the flexibility, the quality of service would lead me to highly recommend Soundwaves Entertainment for your event. I personally subscribe to only booking vendors who are flexible to your needs and have a friendly demeanor to support and accommodate you, adding value for you rather then you accommodating their rules and Soundwaves certainly met all of that criteria.
