About Essential Sounds Entertainment

The most personal, customized music planning experience you will ever have.

We are a group of talented, professional entertainers who strive to give you the most ultimate personal, customized music planning experience you will ever have. Founded by PJ Windle, a veteran of the wedding industry with over 18 years and 1,500 events, Essential Sounds Entertainment LLC was formed with the goal of always focusing on the details. You are unique. Your event is special. Choose entertainment that will express exactly what you envision.

We provide exciting professional entertainment, enhanced lighting fixtures, LED TV video production, photo montage creation, projection screens, GoBo lighting, Candy Buffet Stations, Photo Booths and much much more!.

The word "Experience" is often used to describe the time that someone has put in to his/her line of work.  With Essential Sounds Entertainment, experience means so much more than that.  To us, the time in years that we have dedicated to this industry pales in comparison to the effort and the focus that we provide.  Knowing how important the big day is and providing a steady, calm approach during the planning process is something that we have developed over time, with experience. This is the most important part of the process. Getting it right is essential.

Excitement:  It's contagious. When someone is excited for you, you get excited as well. You feed off it. You thrive. Our entertainers provide enthusiasm when you want it, to the extent that you want it. We bring energy and excitement throughout the entire wedding planning process, not just on the Big Day.  Our goal is to make you feel completely at home and at ease with your entertainer.  If your process is stress-free, we have done our job.

We are a group of entertainers who always put your needs above anything else we do. If you want something done to reflect the uniqueness of you and your fiancèe, tell us about it and we'll make it happen. Our complete focus is to provide an atmosphere that you and your fiancèe can get excited over, be proud of and ultimately, remember forever. Founded by PJ Windle, a 14 year veteran in the wedding industry, Essential Sounds Entertainment was formed under the concept that personal service, customized music planning experiences and friendly relationships that branch out beyond the company/client relationship was paramount to the overall success of an entertainment business. As PJ states, "Just because we are "hired" to do a job, it doesn't mean we can't connect with the Bride and Groom and become more than just your DJ. In the end, I want to be someone you put your trust in because you enjoy the process of planning your wedding and you are completely confident that I feel the same way.

We highly recommend Pj and his team at Essential Sounds Entertainment. The planning process can be overwhelming at times and Pj was always available when we had questions. Pj offered so many helpful suggestions when we were uncertain of something. The day of our wedding was incredible! We had a full dance floor all night long. The photo booth and snow machine were the perfect additions to making our day complete. Thank you so much ensuring we had a great party while also being so professional!

PJ and his assistant, Kells, we're amazing at our wedding! The entire experience working with PJ from start to finish was wonderful. He is professional, super friendly, and so talented at what he does. Everyone had a blast at our wedding...especially my kids! And, PJ created the perfect ceremony for us by allowing us to choose the exact music we wanted to be played for prelude, processional, my entrance, and recessional. It was a dream come true! I can't recommend PJ enough! Thank you!!
