    We used Sound by Design for our wedding reception at the Milwaukee Yacht Club and they did not disappoint! Our guests danced all night long. Torie and Dylan were our DJs and they were wonderful! They really read the audience and played music they knew the crowd would love. I highly recommend Sound by Design!

    Rick Ehlert played an incredible role in our wedding this September at Cuvee in Milwaukee. Rick was incredibly responsive and very structured. Sound by Design has a process that works! They follow a script that relies on putting the customer first and learning about each couple's personality. They take notes, ask questions, and then make recommendations.

    Rick was more than just our DJ, he was an outstanding wedding consultant that kept us on track, offered advice, talked about timing, and also gave us information on what to expect during the wedding process. He took the time to meet with our officiant before hand to go over the logistics, and was also very interactive with the wedding party. He didn't just hide behind the DJ booth, he was appropriately checking in and watched us for musical queues; he never played a song on our list until he saw us out on the dance floor and appropriately mixed in songs the entire crow would like.

    During the reception, I received 5 different compliments on the music choice, volume, and guest mentioned it was "the best wedding playlist they have heard."

    If you want more than just a DJ, if you want a consultant and a tremendous MC, if you want someone that has your best interests in mind, or if you want someone to help throw an awesome party - go with Sound by Design..... go with our guy Rick!

    P.S.
    Rick also killed the light game. The lights we appropriate and complimentary during the dinner, and then in tune with the music during the dancing. He lowered the lights during certain songs, then sent them dancing once the beat dropped. Solid work.




    He wasn't just a wedding DJ, he was an instrumental

    I have no idea where to even begin with Sound By Design. Simply put... they are the BEST in the business. From their ability to keep the party going ALL night long to the details they put into making each and every wedding a success are unmatched. We recently used SBD for my sister's wedding and they totally transformed Turner Hall into a wedding right out of a magazine. The color wash and uplighting in the room was so beyond magical. The photo booth was a hit and they just launched a SBD Films division which we also used and were blown away. Don't think twice... book them before your date is gone!
