Shelly did an amazing job handling the ceremony music for my wedding. Not only did she offer a wide range of options for us, but she was easy to get a hold of and flexible.Sent on 11/07/2013
On the day of the ceremony, she was there in plenty of time to set up and ready to help us rehearse. She managed the entire rehearsal for us like the pro that she is. I was so glad she was there to wrangle the wedding party into order. I don't know how we would have managed without her.

It really was so much fun!! And that's what we wanted. A classy but fun wedding.Sent on 03/23/2015
We were absolutely thrilled with how the entertainment side of things turned out. Not a single moment was dull and (for better or worse) we couldn't drag ourselves away from the dance floor to chat with guests. All of our guests are still talking about it. It was constant fun from the time the reception started to the very, very last moment when we were forced to end the night. The venue was packed until last call- we had to kick everyone out.
These guys are so great- they will do exactly what you want, but better! Great at translating client wishes into reality (which is especially great when you're planning a wedding!) They don't do any cheesy wedding DJ stuff like some vendors do (talk the whole time, try to force jokes and do games). They're also very professional which just made ALL the difference. They discuss and record all your desires and triple check to make sure the information is correct (name pronunciations, the "no play" list, the "must play" list, etc.) and put it down on paper. The communication was good. We met once and did everything else over email. They were on time, friendly with guests and, to our observations, worked well with our catering staff to pull off a highly coordinated event.
We were first a bit hesitant to pay the money when we could get someone else cheaper, but it was SO worth it. From attending other weddings, we knew a bad DJ can make for a weird party climate, and we didn't take the chance. The music sets the tone, and I think it was a MAJOR contributor to an event our guests still discuss and friends want to emulate. Also, it was just one more thing we didn't have to worry about at all. We wanted quality and got quality. When all you notice is that the evening feels perfect (and I'm a stressed-out perfectionist), you know you made some good decisions.

DJ Shelly is the perfect choice for a wedding DJ. We planned our wedding from out of town so we relied mostly on phone calls and emails. Shelly was always very quick getting back to us and answering our questions. She kept the dance floor going all night; taking requests that our guests wanted to hear. We had mentioned we didn't really want any country music to be played, but after getting a few requests, she let us know and made sure it was ok with us before playing a country song. She was awesome and I would hire her again in a heartbeat if we have any other events in the Philly area.Sent on 03/19/2015

Sounds by Shelly was a perfect choice for our wedding DJ service. I attended many weddings and always felt the DJ's were mediocre and didn't think it was possible to surpass that level at an affordable price. Sounds by Shelly definitely proved otherwise. I was able to meet with Shelly a few times and discuss our taste and well as our guests and Shelly handled everything from there. She was able to create a playlist that kept everyone on the dance floor all night long (and made me very happy). She is a very entertaining as an MC and helped keep things moving along solidly so I (as the bride) had no worries. I She is courteous, enthusiastic, professional, affordable, talented and easy to get a hold of when you need. All of these things make her an obvious choice for your special day. would highly highly recommend this service if you want an unforgettable night.Sent on 06/22/2014

Friendly & courteous service. No request was too difficult, she kept in contact w/Bride & her Parents to make sure all songs & activities were fulfilled. Gave expert advise and suggestions to help us with the many details of the wedding. Made sure everything was tasteful and expertly performed her duties. Very pleased in all ways & I am extremely fussy with details.Sent on 02/25/2014

DJ Shelly was fabulous! She took the time beforehand to sit down and discuss every option out there and exceeded our expectations in every area! She was excited about sharing her ideas, walking us through exactly what we wanted, and she was able to make our night incredible! You could tell she is passionate about what she does and her enthusiasm shows on and off the "dance floor" ABSOLUTELY LOVED HER!!!!Sent on 01/29/2014

We hired DJ Shelley for our wedding, and she was great to work with. She was very energetic and brought a lot of enthusiasm to the planning process. She was excited by our ideas and had a lot of her own to contribute. During the event, she also busted out some awesome glow sticks and glow rings that people loved! I heartily recommend DJ Shelley for any event!Sent on 10/05/2014
