Perfect Soundtrack for Our Wedding
From our initial discussion through the end of our wedding, we were very pleased with Dave! We first emailed him and received a prompt response. We set up an initial phone call and learned more about Dave and to explain what we wanted for our wedding. During the call Dave did not pressure us to hire him whatsoever (we talked for about an hour), but instead explained his passion for music and being a DJ. It was also clear he had an impressive knowledge of music from the 50s to today. Dave also explained that he didn’t have a set playlist that he used, but instead asked what genres of music we liked, then chose songs based off that and of course how the people on the dance floor reacted. Dave was also familiar with our venue (and the specific room within the venue) so that made us feel even better about hiring him. We agreed to work with Dave, and planned to have a follow up call a month before the wedding.
A month before the wedding, Dave reached out to us to set up the call. We discussed the cocktail hour music, processional/recessional/bridge song, first dances, and what genres of music were okay to play at the wedding. We still hadn’t chosen a lot of these songs for the ceremony and first dances, but Dave was patient and gave us examples from recent weddings he had done. We also discussed “must play” and “don’t play” lists, which of course Dave abided by at the wedding.
Dave did a perfect job at the wedding itself. The cocktail hour music was great – we were glad we didn’t bother hiring a piano player (the room already had a piano in it). We weren’t really aware of the music because it was exactly what we wanted (and we were busy mingling!) but every few minutes we would notice a song was playing that we really liked. We soon transitioned to the first dances and then to dinner. Dave did a great job with the announcements – kept them simple and to the point. After the dances we transitioned to dinner, during which Dave played great background music. We didn’t dance between any of the courses, but once dinner was over, we headed to the dance floor (which was in an adjacent, connected room). Dave knew what to do, and switched up the music to get everyone out of their seats. There was never a lull after that. Everyone enjoyed the music. Dave was great about playing requests made on the fly (and sticking to “don’t play” and “must play” which we had discussed previously). Most importantly, he was able to stay an extra half hour past the agreed time since we were having so much fun dancing.
Overall we were so thrilled we chose Dave. Dancing and having fun was a very important part of what we wanted for our wedding. He didn’t make the wedding/music/announcements about him, which was something we were concerned about with some of the “stereotypical New Jersey” DJs we saw while doing research. If you want a DJ who is a professional, has great knowledge of music, and who knows how to read a crowd and keep everyone dancing, Dave is the DJ for you.

Dave and Sound Choice DJs did the PERFECT job at our wedding on 10-8-17. I had been to far too many weddings with poor DJ experiences to slack when it came to our wedding reception music. Dave is clearly top notch. Living 4 hours away was no problem, as we met several times over Skype to discuss our preferences. Dave was attentive and informative of what will work, and took great care in crafting the perfect playlists for our cocktail hour and reception.
His equipment is top notch, and didn't interfere with our unique venue at all. I couldn't even tell you where one speaker was in that room, but the quality and volume were just perfect. He did a great job of toning it down while people were eating, and ramping it up to get people out on the dance floor!
We got many compliments throughout the night about the music selection and his overall professionalism. A DJ can make or break a wedding reception and Dave helped to meet and exceed our expectations for our perfect night. I would happily recommend Dave to anyone for their next event. Thank you Dave!
Always professional, great to work with, one of our preferred and favorites with our couples. Highly recommend them.
If you want a DJ that knows how to read your room and play just the right music at just the right time, Sound Choice is the way to go! Great MCing and know how to make the party a party.
Dave and his pros are great. They get the reception going and keep it going.
