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 Entertainment DJed my wedding this past May, and I can't thank my DJ Craig enough for his performance at our wedding. We received DJ services, up lightening, and ceremony music from Soundwaves. Craig was an excellent DJ and planner. He helped make sure the whole...

I highly recommend Soundwaves Entertainment and their DJ Craig, and thank them for doing such a phenomenal job on our special day.

Soundwaves Entertainment is a choice I would recommend for anyone uncertain about their wedding DJ options. I was sold by their genuine and personable demeanor, willingness to work with us on our choices and options, and quick follow up. It was more about how they could... Read More accommodate us and make the reception our own event and they came through on every special request we had. 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.

Our wedding was this June. Chris, the owner was away on vacation so we had an assistant DJ host our event, and it was nothing short of perfect.

I was called a few weeks prior to the event to make sure everything was ok and to double check on music selection, and special dances, toast etc. SounsWaves entertainment is 100% reliable, focused, professional, and they are so much fun, and definitely easy to work with and keep in contact with! I will definitely be recommending them for all of my friends future weddings!

We had the pleasure of working with DJ Tony for our June wedding at the Cork Factory Hotel in Lancaster. We had multiple planning meetings with both Chris, Soundwaves owner, as well as DJ Tony leading up to our wedding. These meetings were informative and both Chris and Tony... Read More brought tons of ideas and recommendations to the table. Using the Soundwaves online planning website was so incredibly easy—my partner and I were able to add songs and formulate our timeline in it, as well as list the exact songs we didn’t want to hear at all (I’m looking at you, SexyBack…). Tony took our ‘can play’ and ‘play under penalty of death’ lists and came up with the best 90’s-00’s dance party ever!! We had an even split in our guest list, about 40% were 60+ and the other 60% were the dancing crowd. Tony and his assistant (his sweet wife!) started our night with lots of 60’s and 70’s tunes that everyone could get up to dance to, and our floor was packed! As the night went on, he played more modern songs on our must-play list and the older guests filled out onto the patio and into the pub, but that left plenty of space for our younger family and friends to really let loose! Our absolute favorite part of the night was the final line-up. We’re college sweethearts, and about 45 of our guests all attended the same school and went to the same college dive bar, so it was important to us that we represent that time together. Tony played the final 4 songs our dive bar closed down to every single night, and our crowd lost it!! It was an absolute hit with all of our friends! We also decided to do a final song of the night, originally to be played as everyone headed out. I chose La Vive En Rose to honor my new husband, so the two of us stayed out on the dance floor and slow-danced to our final song of the night. Halfway though, our parents and close friends joined us with their spouses, and our photographer got some amazing shots of all the love. Honestly, it’s one of the highlights of the day for me, and I’m so glad Tony was able to get the obscure version of the song to play for my husband! Highly recommend using Soundwaves, especially DJ Tony, for your wedding or event! They’re extremely professional and we had zero doubts that they would be able to handle anything that came their way!

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.

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....

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!
