We had an outstanding experience and we so glad we chose SoundFire DJ!
SoundFire DJ made our wedding reception such a fun and relaxing time. Alton made sure that everything went smoothly whether it was the flow of the music, helping get everyone through the buffet line, personalizing the entire evening, and so much more. We wouldn’t have changed a thing and so many guests kept saying what a great time they had. Thank you SoundFire DJ for making our special night so much fun!!

Best DJ Ever
Alton with SoundFire DJ was absolutely amazing, All of our friends were on the dance floor the whole time! He also did an amazing job with personalizing our wedding! I'm still getting comments about how awesome the DJ was!

Awesome Wedding DJ
Alton was really easy to work with and talk to. His experience with music, weddings, & being a DJ really shows. Alton made sure to check in throughout the wedding planning & his monthly planning check lists were awesome. It is about 4 months after our wedding, and we are still getting compliments on how awesome our DJ was. As my husband and I reminisce our day, we will always have the memory of an amazing DJ on our wedding day.

We wanted our reception to be a big party, and it was with SoundFire DJ.
We chose Soundfire DJ because we had a feeling that they'd be able to help us make our wedding an amazingly fun party for us and our guests, and they did that and much more!
The dinner music was exactly what we were hoping for and set the mood of our European theme. And the reception was the epic Italian dance party we wanted!
We truly appreciate all the guidance they provided throughout the planning process, the level of detail they put into personalizing the reception, and the flexibility and willingness to help with potential issues or changes came up.
We couldn't have asked for a better night! The SoundFire DJ team was so much fun!

I do not know where to begin when talking about the service Alton provided for us. When booking with a DJ you expect them to ask - what music? - - - but With Alton, we got, "what is your love story? how are you connected with your bridal party, and your parents?" These are the things and the people that made our night the celebration of a marriage. We were so appreciative of the personal stories shared at our reception. The great music and sound system was just the cherry on top. He kept our wedding ceremony and reception flowing the entire day - without a hiccup. One of the most memorable moments was at midnight, dancing to Avicii with all of our friends and family surrounding us, rocking with us.
We thank Alton and the crew at Soundfire DJ for their unbeatable service. They are truly experts at this profession and treat their clients to an incredibly memorable experience.

The best MC around.
Alton is AMAZING and way more than “just a DJ”. He handled our entire wedding - outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour and indoor reception. He is so professional and accommodating. His equipment is top of the line, and his personality is perfect. He took the time to get to know us for who we are, and it showed through the entire day. He recreated our love story based of stories my husband and I told him separately, and made every moment count. Alton kept the dance floor full while incorporating all the “traditional” dances and rituals. He also helped keep our day special by having us tell him things individually that he brought up during the reception. If you are getting married, planning a party or need an amazing master of ceremonies, I could not recommend Alton enough. Worth every last penny we spent and then some.

So Much More Than "Just A DJ," Alton Is an MC!!!
We hired SoundFire DJ for our wedding, after meeting with several other DJs in the area and not being satisfied with music taste and traditional ceremony ideals. We chose SoundFire DJ because Alton was the first person we actually jammed/meshed with. He was very easy to get along with, and not only wanted to provide music for our wedding, but an EXPERIENCE as well. Alton requested that we meet face to face over the course of our wedding planning to get to know us as a couple, our interests, and our love story. Alton does his absolute best to bring your wishes to life.
One of ours wishes was to not have the traditional garter toss or the bouquet toss, and Alton helped us come up with great substitutions that were funny, appropriate for us as a couple, and entertaining for our guests.
When you're wedding shopping for things and you're paying attention to price, they don't tell you that who you choose to do those things makes or breaks your wedding day. It's one of the most personal and intimate days of your lives and the person you choose is just as important as the service you're paying for, which is what makes Alton the greatest MC of all time.

Alton was a blast to work with. He connected with us on a personal level the minute we met him. He gave us great ideas of fun and different things to do during the wedding that people normally wouldn't see. The set up was beautiful, the DJs were both very nice and professional, and everyone at our reception had nothing but great things to say. Alton took a lot of the pressure off us for coming up with things to say to our guests; his interviews with us in the weeks before our wedding shaped the way he ran our reception, and the reception ran smoothly. SoundFire DJ was the first and only DJ service we spoke with. We can't recommend them highly enough.
Abby · Married on 10/27/2017
From the moment we met with Alton, we knew we couldn’t go with anyone else. He took the time to get to know us personally and made our day run amazingly. The things he did with having him tell our love story for everyone to share in our special journey was incredible. He provided music and sound for our ceremony and through the rest of the night. Everything was planned perfectly and incredibly unique. Everyone had a great time and the dance floor was packed all night. Alton was able to do so many unique things with having us record messages to each other (we had no idea what each other had said) and then incorporating them into our first dance. It was very emotional and very unique. Alton worked with all of our vendors to make things run incredibly smoothly. We were able to plan our entire day with Alton, which made our stress levels go down, and left us with practically nothing to worry about. It was a truly special experience, and couldn’t recommend Alton and SoundFire DJ highly enough.
Ellie · Married on 10/21/2017
SoundFire did a GREAT job with our reception. They were very instrumental in the planning process and put our minds at ease that evening. It’s nice to have one less thing to worry about in amongst all the commotion that comes with a wedding. We had interviewed other DJ services and SoundFire DJ came across as very professional and showed genuine care with how the night would transpire. They were very accommodating with the music we wanted played, and the lighting turned out beautifully. Don’t just take our word for it, talk to other companies and you'll see the difference. We were ecstatic with what SoundFire had to offer, and you will be too. Book these guys quick, their dates fill up fast.

Alton did a fabulous job with our wedding ceremony and reception. He is absolutely a professional who cares about his business and truly an “artist” of his trade. He took the time to get to know us over several meetings, and with his suggestions, helped us to make our reception one of a kind, unique, and memorable for us as well as our guests! Im so glad and grateful I chose Alton to be our wedding DJ, and that we will be able to have those memories for the rest of our lives. From our ceremony, to our first dance, to the kissing games, and the dance floor that was packed full all night, Alton really knows how to host and get people to enjoy themselves, and laugh. We received so many comments and compliments from our guests about our reception and how unique and personalized it was. By showcasing us (although both of us would admit to being shy) and our love story, so many of our guests were in tears and feeling the love in the room, which is what weddings are all about! I would absolutely recommend Alton. He will not disappoint!

Soundfire DJ will exceed your expectation of what an event entertainment company can be. Alton is a consummate professional. You can trust him to be punctual and prepared, respond with timely answers or suggestions when you need them, and provide unmatched personal attention to your event. You will appreciate the personalized web site planning service as well as the numerous options for enhancing your event that Soundfire can offer. Alton took the time to collaborate with our other wedding vendors months in advance to ensure the entire day would be phenomenal. And it was! From our ceremony music, to up-lighting the space, the EverSnap app, the grand march, our special dances with his very personal touches and an amazing dance party. You’ll truly appreciate Alton’s exceptional MC skills as he guides your guests through a very enjoyable and memorable event. Soundfire DJ is an absolute pleasure to work with we highly recommend to anyone who is looking for entertainment services that will deliver a distinctive experience that any host or guest will be sure to appreciate and remember fondly.

When I reached out to Soundfire DJ. Alton almost immediately responded via Facebook, and suggested we meet for coffee. We liked him right away and could tell he was a professional. He was open with price and package options and made us feel like we were truly planning our one of a kind special night. SoundFire DJ sent me monthly checklist emails, with things to work on each month. We met with Alton at our reception site a month before the wedding, to meet with the wedding coordinator there and go over our banquet hall space. We met with Alton for the last time a little over a week for a final walkthrough of the reception and everyone’s expectations. He answered all of our questions. Upon leaving I felt very assured that the wedding day would go amazingly. Alton also did our ceremony sound system, to mic our harpist, the groom, and the officiant. He showed up on time to do the mic check, and did an awesome job for the ceremony, the sound had no issues at all. When we arrived for the grand march later that night, he met with all of us to go over expectations for the march. Alton did an INCREDIBLE job the entire night! He kept the guests engaged and entertained throughout dinner and dancing There was only one minor flaw when the wrong song was initially played for a dance with my stepdad and I. Besides that, the grand march, the dances, the garter toss and cake cutting all went flawlessly. He was very responsive to our needs during the night, and really got along with our wedding party and other guests. He did a shoely wed game for us (provided the shoes haha) but it was Game of Thrones themed which we loved! He also had many unique ideas for our garter toss that I will never forget! The songs and music quality were perfect. I also rented a projections screen from him which constantly played a cool slideshow of pictures that my Maid of Honor created. I 100% love my decision to hire SoundFire DJ, Alton and Heather made it a night we will never forget!

We had originally wanted to hire another DJ, but he was booked and recommended Alton at Soundfire DJ. We're glad he did. Many people commented on how they loved our DJ. Alton took the time to personalize our event and met with us for several hours to get all the details right. The dance floor was full all night and the music was perfect. We loved the mashups. Thank you Alton for everything!
Shannon · Married on 09/16/2017
Alton was absolutely amazing! From the first email, the touch points before the wedding, to the wedding day, SoundFire DJ/Alton is dedicated to creating a perfect day for you.
Alton takes the time to personally know each and every bride & groom. He wants to know how you met, how you fell in love, why you chose to be with each other. These little details were important to him because he is then able to enhance your wedding by sharing these personal details throughout the day!
On the wedding day, Alton goes above and beyond to ensure the day is perfect! From managing the timeline to reading body language, he knows how to keep a crowd entertained and dancing all night long. Booking SoundFire DJ was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!
Amanda · Married on 09/09/2017
Alton at SoundFire DJ was the first DJ we met with. To make sure we did our research, we met with a few others, but every one of them we ended up comparing back to Alton, and after that we knew we had to have him for our wedding day. It was important to us that we had someone energetic and excited about our plans, and we definitely felt that way with him. Prior to meeting with SoundFire DJ we felt very lost when it came to planning what was going to happen at our reception. During the planning stages SoundFire DJ was incredibly helpful by assisting us with getting exactly what we wanted out of the music selections & flow of the event. We loved the monthly email checklists, the easy to use online planner, and Alton gave us his personal attention whenever we had questions.
When we got to our wedding day everything was delivered as promised, and more! We want to say that Alton has incredible people skills, and our guests absolutely loved him. He also did all kinds of things that really made our wedding day unique & personalized that I haven’t ever seen done at another wedding. Especially the way he introduced us, our wedding party, and family members by sharing our story as a couple, and how that related to our guests & family. Alton also created this amazing medley for my father/daughter dance, and had his lighting set to our color scheme. All of those details, and more, added up to make the experience exceed our expectations! Thank you for working with us to make our wedding day the best!
Christine · Married on 09/03/2017
Working with the SoundFire DJ staff has been wonderful. They are very organized and attentive to every detail. They customize your day to whatever you would like and have great ideas for the garter toss, bouquet toss etc. Their biggest concern is that you're happy and that your guests remember your wedding as the best one they have ever attended. Truly a delight to work with and will use their services again in the future.
Amanda · Married on 08/19/2017
Alton at SoundFire DJ has the utmost passion and drive to make your wedding day the best it possibly can be! He takes the time to get to know each couple individually and personally so that he can relate your love story to your guests in the most perfect culminating moments of your day. Alton goes above and beyond what most people see a DJ’s role as and is more than willing to be helpful in any aspect of the wedding. Through out the entire planning process of the wedding he is the only vendor who would reach out to us instead of us having to reach out to him. Alton has great experience and knowledge in his profession and has great ideas to help make your wedding unique and fun for you and your guests! This is the best DJ you could have for your wedding!!
Kristin · Married on 06/03/2017
We had a great experience with SoundFire! Alton is professional, friendly, and flexible! He really listened to what we wanted!
Ben · Married on 01/14/2017
This DJ is well worth the cost. He delivers on his promises, plans your day thoroughly with you in multiple stages, has great communication, and genuinely tries to make your day as perfect as you imagined it to be! Alton was the only person in our planning process that I can honestly say fully delivered! I do not plan to get married again...but if I do I would totally book SoundFire! Trust me, I am stubborn, picky and extremely opinionated and Alton met and surpassed all of my expectations! If you want to have the perfect day call Alton!
Cory · Married on 08/20/2016
As we were looking for wedding DJs, we fortunately came across Alton. From the initial conversation, I knew it was going to be a great experience. He's a master of his craft and wants to make sure your day has a personal touch. His knowledge of acoustics and the quality of his equipment are never in question. The reception was a great night and he kept the dance floor full. Few things I would recommend for the day; Eversnap application and having Alton create slideshow. I would definitely recommend SoundFire for any occasion as you will not be disappointed. Top notch equipment and service. He is also willing to work with all of your vendors to make sure they're all on the same page. With all the articles surrounding how important your DJ service is, not a lie. If you're looking to keep costs down for a wedding, don't do it on a DJ service.

My wife Hannah Kidd and I got married on June 18th, 2016. We were looking for a DJ and found SoundFire DJ. My fiance, at the time, called and talked to Alton Olson. She said he sounded very professional and was very easy to talk to so we decided to meet with him. We met at the place of our reception and I could instantly tell he was going to be an amazing DJ. Just by looking at the room we had picked, he helped us by giving ideas on where we could put different tables and where everything would look the best. Through out the whole wedding process he was there for us, giving us timelines even for when things should be done that was above and beyond what a DJ was expected to do and was a tremendous help!!! The up lighting he did turned out amazing and was very beautiful!!!! During our wedding he told us what we should all be doing(bride, groom, bridesmaids, and groomsmen) to have everything flow as smoothly as possible. He was always right on cue for every event we had that night. DJ Alton kept the dance floor going all night long, like I have never seen before from all the weddings I have been too. He also isn't afraid to get on the dance floor and show off some moves which was very impressive as well. He was a big reason why our reception was so amazing and fun. Family and friends commented to us all night on how awesome he was. I truly believe my wife and I hired a DJ and left with a friend.Sent on 06/22/2016

Alton at SoundFire DJ was absolutely amazing to work with and is more than just a DJ, and is also kind of a wedding coordinator! He helps you stay organized from the beginning by sending monthly emails about what kind of tasks you should be completing. The online database he uses really helps you think about all the details of your day and the music you want associated with it. For example, he told us about including an anniversary dance at our reception and so many of our guests just loved that moment! Alton is super friendly, extremely professional, and very accommodating. He found the music that we wanted for our special day if it wasn't in his library, knew everything we needed for sound at our outdoor ceremony and kept people on the dance floor even for a day time wedding. We also added the Eversnap app to our DJ package which was an awesome way for our guests to share all of their pictures of the day. Our guests raved about how cool the app was and we loved seeing our guests' perspective of the day! Alton really helped us make sure our day was special for both us and our guests. I would highly recommend Alton and SoundFire for any events and especially a wedding. With all of the other wedding details that couples stress about, our DJ was one thing we never had to worry about.
Rachel · Married on 05/14/2016
Hmmm, what advice would I give on booking this vendor? Book them!! Alton was incredible to work with. Everything was taken care of in a timely fashion while we were planning, and he was always on top of things during the day of the wedding. He really helped keep everyone working together, and my photographer loved Alton for how he was willing to help make our pictures awesome with his lights!
Alton also took the time to get to know us, and used that knowledge to really personalize our day and make it special. He introduced us and our first dance in a way I've never heard before at a wedding, and it was really touching.
Now the best part - the music. If you're looking for a low-key reception where there won't be much dancing - this is not the DJ for you. Alton knows how to get a crowd moving!! There was literally no awkward time from when the dance started where people were afraid to get out on the dance floor. He had the floor packed from the moment we were done dancing with our parents, and kept us dancing all night!!
Also, if you want to have the coolest bouquet & garter throw, he knows how to come up with some awesome ideas to put a fresh spin on it.
Our wedding day has so many beautiful memories thanks to Alton & SoundFire DJ. We wish we could go back and do it all over again!!
Amanda · Married on 05/14/2016
When we were looking to hire a DJ, at first, we only thought about music. We also didn't hire the DJ as one of the very first vendors for our wedding because we thought all they did was play music. Meanwhile we're trying to figure out and stress over all of these details about our day, and we were totally lost! Then we found Alton with SoundFire DJ. After speaking with him we knew we had to hire him. Our stress level immediately went way down as he talked about how he could help with figuring out what we wanted to do for our wedding & reception. He was always very responsive when we had a question, we got these emails every month with planning checklists that were a huge help, and he kept in touch with us to make sure things were going smoothly. On the day of our wedding everything was perfect. The personal touches Alton shared about our relationship was really beautiful, and had my family laughing and tearing up (in a good way) all at the same time! I was getting so many compliments on our DJ, and we hadn't even started the dance!! Of course the dance was incredible. The dance floor was full all night, and the music was awesome. It's hard to describe it, but Alton knows music really well, and he's able to take familiar songs and do some really cool stuff with them. It's been a few months since our wedding, and I'm still getting compliments on SoundFire DJ. I highly recommend them for your wedding.
