Surf & Sound Events, LLC was founded in 2014, but the story goes back much further than that. I have always been a lover of music, both listening and playing. Guitar, bass, and drums have all been passions for a long time, and I also do my fair share of singing. I've also spent plenty of time behind the soundboard in various musical settings.
Since 2006 my full-time job has been working with InterVarsity at my alma mater, Christopher Newport University, in Newport News, VA. Over the years I've attended many weddings of former students, and numerous times I was asked to either run sound for the ceremony, or set up a PA system to be used at the reception.
My friends Chris and Sarah asked me to be the DJ and Master of Ceremonies at their reception a while back. I figured I knew the sound system part, I knew the MC part, I knew good music, I knew how to keep track of the details involved in a reception, and I knew what reception guests wanted (and didn't want) from a wedding DJ, so I agreed. That would be one of the best decisions I would ever make! I received many compliments and had a fantastic time doing it. So thanks to Chris and Sarah for taking a risk on me!
After that it was an easy decision to invest in higher-end sound and lighting equipment to really put together a professional and elegant reception.

I can't recommend Eric enough! I just got married last weekend and Eric dj'ed our wedding. He was great to work with from the start, very professional and organized. The day of the wedding, he was punctual and worked wonderfully with everyone else involved on wedding day. He has fun with the music and gets everyone onto the dance floor. Eric goes above and beyond to ensure your wedding day is all you imagined. I saw him helping the caterers uncover food at the buffet, that definitely wasn't in his contract but speaks volumes about him. You will not regret hiring him for your event!Sent on 04/17/2019

Eric delivers! We had multiple special requests and song changes throughout the ceremony and reception, including a few last minute details we had to ask for. Eric was flawless on all of the details and made us feel at ease throughout the entire process. He also had great suggestions for the timeline, which helped this bride who was planning everything on her own. He is professional, friendly, and really easy to work with. We loved using the Google doc to communicate and make updates as we had time. He helped take the stress out of it. We highly recommend him for your future wedding!Sent on 12/31/2018

I have had the pleasure to work with Eric on several occasions. He is a complete professional and joy to be around. His smile lights up a room and his skills are amazing. Any bride would be blessed to have him DJ at their event!
Eric at Surf and Sound Evens is someone I always recommend to my couples. He is very professional and has all the equipment. I believe personality really matters when it comes to a DJ! They make or brake your dance floor. The flow of the reception and atmosphere is their responsibility, and I can honestly say that he is a major pro at all that! He is respectful, classy, and never cheesy, and I love working with him!
