Great at reading the room!
Dave Hoeffel of Sound Choice Disc Jockeys absolutely nailed our wedding day. He was incredibly professional and did a fantastic job! We had a two-story venue and I was worried that the sound would be uniform throughout the space, but Dave made it perfect. People could easily talk and mingle during cocktail hour and dinner, and he raised the volume gradually to get everyone out on the dance floor after dinner. The dance floor was then packed the entire reception. He did a great job reading the room and playing music that suited everyone’s tastes. Dave is truly the best and we couldn’t recommend him enough!

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.

The best of all the people we hired for our wedding
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.
