    Absolutely the best!!

    PJ was such an amazing DJ for our wedding. I have been to 3 weddings with him and have had a great time at each wedding. First off, he was so understanding when he had to postpone our wedding and was able to accommodate that change. During the planning process, he was available for all our questions, answered back quickly, met with us multiple times via video chat and helped guide us through the challenging process of choosing music for our wedding to make sure it is exactly what we wanted. He provided us with recommendations to help the day flow well and make sure we accommodate all music styles. We were a Sunday night wedding and I was nervous that people may start leaving early, but the dance floor was filled all night. He鈥檚 the best and I would highly recommend Essential Sounds to anyone!

    Essential Part of Our Wedding!

    PJ, from Essential Sounds Entertainment, was the first vendor we booked. My husband and I saw him officiate and DJ our friend's wedding and knew we had to have him at ours. He is so sincere and delivered our love story perfectly. So many of our guests thought he was a close friend with how he spoke of us and he made our ceremony special. He is unbelievably charismatic and also a phenomenal DJ, such a professional and wonderful to work with. We were also a COVID couple and he was extremely flexible with postponements. I highly recommend working with him as your officiant and DJ!

    Excellent in Every Way

    PJ was our wedding DJ on October 2, 2021, and he absolutely killed it! Everyone loved the music. We got so many compliments after the reception. Most importantly, we loved working with him. He played everything we wanted and added his own touches that had people dancing all night! I cannot recommend him more!
