Antonio and his son were amazing and kept the party going! They worked with our day of coordinator to keep things going smoothly and without interrupting the flow of the celebration. They dance floor stayed packed. We met with Antonio a few times and gave him a loose framework to work within per his form we filled out. We just wanted up beat and happy music that people can't help but dance to then got out of their way. They did a great job reading the crowd and playing great songs. Our venue was strict on send off requirements (nothing messy like birdseed, sparklers or confetti) so they suggested these LED foam wands that were a hit! We brought them out well before the send off and the dance floor went crazy. I believe they also provide them as one of their services. They truly made the night one that all of our friends are still talking about.

Charles and Sarah, Thank you so much for the thoughtful comments
on our services. We really enjoyed your reception. You had an incredible turnout. We did our best to keep everything running smoothly coordinating all of our announcements and time line with all of the other vendors and of course reading and responding to the crowd to keep the dance floor packed and moving all night long. We hope you enjoyed us involving your guest in the serenade at the end of the evening I think it capped the evening off well. Yes the foam lights were a big hit and the night as a whole is one I am sure everyone will always remember.
You are both amazing, so many wonderful words spoken by family and friends that night about you. We truly wish you both the best.
May God bless you and bring you the best in all they years ahead.

We were planning our wedding from a different city and Antonio was very helpful and accommodated our schedule as far as meeting dates and times. He also was very helpful in recommending other vendors which turned out to be just as amazing! We had some last minute changes to our timeline and Antonio was such a breeze to work with. We have a diverse group of family and friends and everyone was dancing all night! He played EVERYTHING! We, and our guests, loved him!

Richard,
So glad you had us out for your event at the Gardens of Cranesbery View. What a beautiful location in the Texas hill country and Amy is such a pleasure to work with as always. Joseph did an amazing ceremony, the cocktail and dinner transitioned smoothly into the dance where we worked to honor requests and keep everyone entertained and dancing all night long. It was our pleasure providing the on-site ceremony music and all of the dance music through the reception. A wonderful night all around, so glad you enjoyed it!
Congratulations again and our wishes for a blessed future for your both.

I had many friends complain about the DJ at their weddings, so I was careful when picking mine. Finest Sounds was great! He played the music I requested and collaborated with my family and the vendors in order to make announcements at the appropriate time. A couple weeks before the wedding, he asked me to fill out a sheet of the genres of music I preferred and that sheet made it easy to share my requests for the whole night. Antonio kept the party alive all night and my guests had a blast. Antonio is very nice and professional for a decent price. I highly recommend Finest Sounds!

Toni was great! He made our reception memorable and stress free. The music was what was requested and our guests had a fabulous time. The music was non-stop and it was a fun night. Toni even made some suggestions about the itinerary he has you fill out before hand and everything turned out great. We love,love everything he did. We would hire him again in a heartbeat.

Having an empty dance floor was one of my worries leading up to the wedding. My sister and I went with Finest Sounds partly due to the good reviews and packages that would fit our budget. DJ Anthony rocked the party! And let me tell you it was no small task considering we had people of all different backgrounds and ages at our party (Midwesterners, Californians, Europeans, and Mexicans). I was worried it would be hard to find a balance but not for Anthony. He kept the dance floor packed all night and played all the right songs. I also really appreciated his professionalism. He stuck to our preferences on the music survey and did not go outside them unless he got the OK from me or my husband. I am more than impressed with their work and glad we went with them. Thank you! -Vivian

So glad everything went well. Anthony is one of my very Best DJ's! I strive to have all of my DJ's work closely with the clients as well as be aware of all details myself. He plays quite well to the crowd and of course stays mindful of all details the bride and groom specify.
We work to make all receptions a success and lasting good memory for everyone. So very glad you were pleased with it all.

Antonio and his son were fantastic DJs! The songs played during the cocktail hour were great and kept our guests happy while time passed and the wedding party took all the pictures. Antonio kept to our requests with a great mix of Texas Country! Once we showed up and the real party needed to start and Antonio made a smooth transition into great dancing/entertaining music! It got everyone young enough to throw inhibition to the wind and get wild on the dance floor. Sure the moves were terrible and it mostly was liquid courage, but Antonio played everything everyone wanted to hear. We had several guests compliment us on how great our DJ was, and I quote "He was the best wedding DJ I have ever seen!!" We also had plenty of people let us know the next morning they danced so much their feet hurt. We would credit this to Antonio for getting people out of their seats and on the dance floor. The transitions into different segments of the wedding were flawless. It never felt like there was a lull in music or a pause trying to figure out what to do, Antonio was on top of every little thing.

Finally at the end of the night Antonio played our last song. Little did we know, he had one last trick up his sleeve. He had us come out to the middle of the floor and had everyone circle us. It became one huge serenade from all of our guests, making the end of our wedding unique and forever rememberable! We were surrounded by our closest friends and family in a huge circle with every singing "Don’t Stop Believin’” at the top of their lungs and it was better than any ending we could have ever dreamed up!

We are forever grateful to Antonio and his son for such a magical and special night! Thank you both!!

Antonio was great. He welcomed us into his home for a consultation and gave us a questionnaire to fill out with our plan. It was a very organized process. He was always available when I had questions. He also had great suggestions when I didn't know what kind of music to pick. Antonio went above and beyond with his service and the quality of music at our wedding was great! We were not very picky about what was played at our wedding we just wanted our guests to have fun. We didn't have an empty dance floor all night. I would recommend Antonio to anyone for their event.

Lori,
Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts and regard of our services. It was a pleasure to work with you, from the ceremony by the falls all the way through your reception. We do always try to make every couple feel that they can ask us any questions. We are available at anytime along the way from the moment we book to the day of the event to assist with any of the details of our service toward the reception, and at time offer advise on items outside the scope of our field, but still items we think will benefit or fit the outcome you are looking for. We did try to keep the floor filled and everyone entertained all night. I believe everyone certainly had a great time.
Thank you again for choosing our services. We wish you and John all the best!
Kindest Regards,
