Sound Source Seattle was the absolute best decision I made for our wedding. Canon was the perfect person to run that whole wonderful day. I was able to sit back, relax, and go with the flow (not an easy thing to do as a bride) because he had everything completely under control. Not only did the flow of the day feel perfectly timed and completely natural but we had more people on our dance floor the whole night than I had seen the last four weddings I've attended combined. Canon is magic. He is worth is weight in gold. He knows how to work with all personality types, answering questions from a handful of people at once without missing a beat and still making them feel heard. The question I got most at the wedding was "Where did you find Canon?" everyone was impressed with Canon (my Husband, parents, and in-laws included!) which is no surprise once you see him in action. Just walking through the details of the day before hand with him helped me so much in my planning. He asked questions I never knew to think of and lead to more answers I never even knew I needed. Canon takes his time to really understand you and what you truly want from your wedding. Then he makes it happen. Hiring Sound Source Seattle is far more than just hiring a DJ, it's finding the ingredient to your wedding you didn't know was missing. There is no possibly way our wedding would have been so wonderful and so universally enjoyed by all (even usually boring family members) if not for everything that Canon has made Sound Source Seattle to be. He and this amazing business he has created are the absolute best.Sent on 12/30/2013

A stellar choice to provide entertainment and management of your party!
From the planning through the festivities on the day of the event, Canon and Amberlynne (and their team) were thoughtful, creative and professional. They engaged well with our other vendors and the event staff and were a delight to work with throughout! As a result, we had a FANTASTIC party, with multiple guests asking where we'd found such an excellent DJ and how they could get his contact info. Genuinely delighted by our interactions with them and looking forward to working with them at another event. I cannot rave enough about the quality of their service, their great communication, and the superior party that we and our guests had as a result. Run - do not walk - to book them!Sent on 08/20/2019

It was a real pleasure having Sound Source Seattle as our DJ/Emcee at our wedding!! Our wedding was multicultural (my husband is Nigerian, I’m American) so it was important to the both of us to have a fun atmosphere and someone that could carry the crowd, and Canon did just that!Sent on 08/04/2019
Not only was he able to keep our guests entertained while we were out changing into our Nigerian dress and taking pictures, he led games that kept us engaged and laughing so hard we about fell out of our chairs! (Ask him about the shoe game and goodluck dance)
Leading up to the wedding, Canon met with us a couple of times to talk about our vision, what was important to us, and the kind of music we wanted. He & Amberley were able to deliver just that and incorporate both cultures into the mix. Canon and his crew also added a nice touch to our venue with great uplighting that only added to the ambience.
Overall, our wedding reception was loads of fun, and a lot of it wouldn’t have happened without Canon’s (Sound Source Seattle) involvement.
Thank you Canon!!

There is no question that I would hire Sound Source again in a heartbeat. Canon and his team are truly outstanding! We hired them for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah in May 2019. Not only is he organized, fun and knows the latest trends but kept the whole group entertained all evening long. Canon's ability to get over 75 teenagers involved, laughing and having fun for hours is amazing in itself. However his personality and joy exudes throughout the entire crowd. We received more compliments on how much fun everyone was having and I know it was in part due to Canon and his team. Thank you for helping us make the night exactly as we wanted it, fun for everyone!Sent on 07/24/2019

Awesome! So much more than a DJ!
Canon was the glue of our event! He ensured that everything went smoothly, even before we secured the venue. He is an absolute professional and a pleasure to work with. Most importantly, he had our whole crowd engaged and having a blast, from kids to grandparents! Canon truly enabled us to enjoy our event, we relaxed knowing that he had everything under control! Thank you, Canon!!!!Sent on 03/07/2019

You can tell when somebody loves what they do; Canon & Amberley did a fantastic job helping us coordinate our wedding, and the MC / DJ services that day were amazing! Canon had everyone dancing and partying with us for the whole night, and the whole evening seamlessly fit together thanks to them both. Having never planned a wedding before, we were very thankful that they had worked so many events, and saved us from many pitfalls we hadn't even considered.Sent on 10/04/2018

Sound Source was the best decision we made for the whole wedding. Their timing, professionalism, knowledge base and organization are unequaled. Would love to work with them again for a future event!Sent on 09/26/2018

Working with Canon and Amberley was an absolute joy; we cannot imagine our wedding without them! Canon is the most fun and gracious emcee you could possibly choose for your wedding while Amberley's planning skills and attention to detail will ensure that everything goes without a single hitch. Their experience shows in their work. Our friends and family came up to us and asked how we found such a wonderful DJ/emcee and planner. Canon made the wedding an absolute blast while Amberley managed anything and everything that came up.Sent on 05/30/2018
Leading up to our wedding, they helped us plan, create a timeline and work in some magical touches in our ceremony! Canon and Amberley met with us several times to walk through every detail and to make sure that we had thought of everything. We simply cannot recommend them enough!

I was recommended to Sound Source Seattle by a friend who hired them for her son’s wedding. She showed me a few pictures and videos that really showed they were something special. We just had no idea how special! Canon took extra time to get to know David and me and really got a feeling for what we wanted for our special day. The day of I was not stressed at all! Everything was timed and planned perfectly (without the scheduled feel a lot of wedding have). Amberley (Canon’s wife/our DJ) has a true talent when it comes to song selection. She can read the room and know exactly what song will fit. Canon’s talent, quite frankly, is not a talent you see anymore! Canon had everyone laughing and involved. Canon and Amberley will make your wedding one of a kind! We are still getting comments about how our wedding was so fun and the best anyone has ever been to. A Bride’s dream! Don’t let any price scare you because they can charge hundreds more and still be worth every penny! The absolute best decision and investment we made for our wedding. You won’t be sorry.Sent on 02/05/2018

When we started planning our wedding, we knew we wanted something a little different. Canon and Amberley helped us create a celebration that honored our closest family and friends as a huge part of our relationship. Afterwards we heard from many of our guests that it was the most incredible wedding they'd ever attended. It was truly magical, and we credit much of it to the efforts of Canon, working with us to make our vision a reality, and to both of them for pulling it off flawlessly.Sent on 01/19/2018

I can't even say enough good things about Canon and Amberly! Canon was recommended to us by a friend, and he was the best investment we could have possibly made in our wedding. He helped with the planning process and really steered the direction and vibe of our whole day. He was the perfect mix of wedding coordinator, emcee, and DJ. When I got bogged down in ridiculous wedding details, he was there to help guide me while still respecting all of our wishes. He was an integral part of the both the planning process and the actual wedding.Sent on 07/27/2016
Our reception was an absolute blast! Canon made the flow work really well, so that people went to where they were supposed to be. He kept people engaged by doing fun and unexpected things. The music was fun and exactly what we wanted. Canon even saved me from and unexpected wedding meltdown, which certainly wasn't in his job description. He truly went above and beyond to make our wedding a special day, and we have received countless compliments on how great he was.

We are forever thankful and grateful to Canon and his wife Amberley for being a part of our wedding. They were a huge reason for the success our our special day because what they provide is not just a service and when you're done working with them, you won't think of them as a DJ or vendor... they are so much more. We met with Canon a handful of times before our wedding and he took the time to get to know us as people and he got to know our music likes and dislikes through our personalities. He helped us create a thorough timeline for our ceremony and reception and gave us the comfort knowing the biggest day of our lives was in good hands. Canon and Amberley are incredibly friendly, funny, professional, thorough and easy going. The actual music that was played at our wedding was just the tip of the iceberg of what they provided. We played a shoe game with hand puppets and Canon was definitely in his element because he had the room cracking up. We also did mad libs to release certain tables to the buffet and it was a huge hit. All of our friends and family were asking us where we found Canon and Amberley because they were so great. They aren't just a DJ service... they were a planner, coordinator, host, DJ and now forever friends to my wife and I. It's also clear that they don't just look at themselves as just a DJ either. This is their passion and that's evident in the final product they provide and the way they prepare for it. We couldn't be happier with our decision to hire Canon and Amberley and we will be recommending them to all our friends who get married.Sent on 01/29/2016

Cannon and Amberley were beyond words wonderful. Cannon did a great job reflecting our personalities in his selection of music and just the way he talked during the reception. He was entertaining and his excitement keep the crowd involved in our reception. Amberley was so wonderful with my wife especially keeping her on track. My wife had a tendency to worry about things farther down the road. Amberley was very gentle with her and said no, no we worry about that in Oct. what we need to talk about now is blank. Out day could not have gone so smooth without such a great team. Cannon and Amberley work so well together there is such trust between them, that you can see not one detail is ever forgotten.Sent on 02/05/2016
Amberley was really good about meeting with us often and reminding us what we needed to be doing when. I don't know that we could have done it without her.

Canon was absolutely wonderful. He's great at his job and you can tell he loves what he does. He was very responsive and accommodating to all of my needs and very helpful when I had any questions or needing anything changed for our wedding. He also goes above and beyond and helps with timeline planning and makes great suggestions from past experiences. He truly wants his bride and groom to have the best day of their lives and wants to make sure this happens. The day of was a blast! I've had so many comments since on how great Canon and his wife were at creating a fun party atmosphere. I am so happy I went with them, and will refer all of my friends to them in the future.Sent on 10/11/2015

Everything asked for was delivered and more by Cannon and his team. Great engagement with the audience; he'll deliver (from games to special requests) as much or as little to suit your needs. That said, I would encourage you to allow Cannon and Sound Source to get involved with your audience and ensure they have a great experience. Highly recommend if you are looking for a professional in this arena.Sent on 09/30/2015

Canon was amazing. He is worth the cost for his service. He was able for 2 hours to have a group of boys and girls of different ages be engage in unique games and made our bar mitzvah a success. He has tons of experience with different types of audiences and knows how to make the party a success.Sent on 10/01/2015

Book Canon NOW before he fills up!! This guy MADE our wedding-- Hands down our best vendor!Sent on 12/27/2014
A little pricey BUT you get TWO dj's for your $ as he & his wife work as a team (= 1 DJ behind the booth all night (ie no pre-recorded sets), and an MC who's free to move the venue as needed. Very nice during toasts, etc.). He also drove an hour to meet with us multiple times - 5 mins from our house. :)
We called him our Wedding Coordinator cus he literally had a hand in every single piece of our event. From working out the serving timeline with our caterer to mapping the layout with our venue to bustling my gown (& squashing my panic) when none of my girls could figure it out-- Canon did it all!
We had a big wedding (200 g's & 22 in the W Party) spanning 6+ hours -- Canon & Amberley killed it! He played great music but I think his best quality is orchestrating all the pieces into one cohesive event. He is a master at keeping things on schedule and directing guests/vendors/you name it -- in a way that asserted himself as The Leader without being pushy, etc. His behind the scenes work is ON POINT. And as an MC, he had all our guests laughing and totally tuned in.
During our plated dinner, my husband and I started panicking when we noticed the service running way behind schedule. But it was like Canon read our minds because literally within minutes of us noticing it, he were right there at our sweetheart table with a solution! He addressed the issue with our caterer so we didn't even have to get up. Couldn't believe it! After that, we knew there was no reason to even bother ourselves with paying attention to the details because we knew they had it all under control. IT WAS AWESOME.
The games he suggested were SO FUN- Highly recommend! We were nervous they'd be cheesy but they were honestly the highlight of our reception for us and many guests. Easy way to get even the grandparents involved. Great memories!
The dance floor was packed ALL NIGHT! Loved him!!!
