Sound Enforcement DJ Service is a mobile DJ service specializing in entertainment for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours and receptions. I proudly provide high-quality, professional DJ entertainment for central Virginia and beyond.

My style is low key and can be summed up in a few words as, "Elegant Fun". My goal is to play music your guest want to hear and dance to. This goal is achieved by planning and discussing details and song choices with you. Every playlist is put together using input I receive from the bride and groom. Some weddings my have more current music, some may have more 80's, motown, country, oldies, or unique taste of the bride and groom. During events I do accept requests. I like to pride myself on being able to read a crowd and play music your guests will dance to, but nothing beats direct feedback from your guest.

Along with being your DJ, I am also your Emcee, making introductions and any announcements that you need. My twenty plus years of event planning experience allow me to serve my clients with a higher level of service. My years in the wedding industry provide me with the knowledge and understanding of how many other vendors like to work. I work closely with the venue staff, caterer and photographer to make sure your reception runs smoothly.

I use only professional grade audio equipment and I have back up equipment if needed. Wireless microphones will be available during the reception for my use as well as for toasts and speeches and any other needs. Music will be played from MP3s as well as CDs. Music selections are in radio edit format. I do not charge for travel time, setup or tear down time. My rate for DJ/Emcee services also includes dance floor lighting. Dance floor lighting is; multi-colored, DMX lights used to enhance the atmosphere of dance time. I also offer Decor Lighting services such as LED Up Lighting and Monogram Lighting.

I offer complete services for ceremonies from music selections of your choice to lapel microphones and speakers microphones. I have the ability to provide sound amplification in very unique or out of the way settings. If there is not an outlet nearby, no problem, I bring my own power, which is completely 100% quiet and non intrusive. If you are planning an outdoor ceremony, sound amplification is a must. Using lapel mics will allow your guest to follow along with your ceremony. The lapel mic worn by the officiant and the groom will also pick up the bride's voice as well.

Amazing & fun DJ!

T.D. was AMAZING!! Aside from being an incredible DJ who kept the party going all night, he is just a great person with a fun personality! He is so easy to work with and helpful throughout the planning process. As a planner, I loved every bit of working with Sound Enforcement and know you will too.

T.D. is the ultimate professional

Although wedding planning can be stressful, T.D. made music, audio, and dancing a breeze for us. From day one, he was helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. He knew the layout of the venue like the back of his hand and was able to walk us through his set ups from the ceremony to the reception. As wedding date approached, T.D. had reminders set up in his planning platform to remind us to fill out important information like the schedule of events, song preferences, and how to find our toast speakers. It really made the planning process seamless and easy. On the day of, T.D. never missed a beat and his transitions between ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were flawless. He kept our wedding party dancing the whole night and even ran our wedding shoe game. We could not recommend him more and look forward to working with him in the future!

Sound Enforcement-Highly Recommend!

TD was amazing, professional yet laid back. He was recommended to us by our caterer, and after speaking with him on the phone, he was hired! He walked us though everything, and had a detailed form to fill out and get back to him about what kind of music we wanted or didn't want, when we wanted it played, and timeline for the event. We spoke on the phone about a week before the wedding to go over the paper, and he was so knowledgeable and easy to talk to. The day of the wedding, our timeline got moved around due to the health of a family member, and TD barely blinked an eye. He moved songs around for us easily, took examples of songs we had given him and expanded on them, and had everyone out on the dance floor after dinner.
I would highly recommend TD and Sound Enforcement to anyone looking for a competent, professional and fun DJ.
