INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Professional, stylish and elegant.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Only by the time of the event.
What is your usual attire?
We will match the attire of the wedding. Ordinarily your DJ will show up in Coat and Tie unless you tell him otherwise.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No; We will play every song that is pre-requested... guaranteed! In fact, all of our equipment is digitally and computer based. Meaning that if we get a request that we don't have, we'll buy it and download it right then and there on the web.
How many other DJs do you work with?
We currently have 4 full time DJs working for us.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
2 Hours
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes; We have an online form that the couple will fill out when the event is booked but prefer to have a consultation closer to the date of the event. The consultation is where their DJ will take them out to lunch and talk about their big day in detail based off the form and make any changes that may have come up.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We've performed for an assortment of ethnicities and cultures. For example, we've done Greek, Scottish, and Jewish weddings just to name a few.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Of course, we want your big day to be perfect.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Of course! State of the art and always up to date.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We are a full service entertainment company. We will provide anything and everything you want. Including but not limited to mobile units, lights, lazers, smoke, bubble machine, etc. Visit our website to see videos and pics including our light show.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
We need an hour but prefer that we have two. If the venue will allow us, we prefer to set up first thing in the morning or earlier that day to keep the unexpected from happening. We are very dedicated to the day. 
 
 We do prefer that the venue provide a table to simply ensure that we match the other tables and blend in with the atmosphere. We pay a lot of attention to our appearance so we don't ruin the look you have worked so hard to achieve. However, we do have our own tables if necessary.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No, we are flexible.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Again, it's entirely up to you. We do like to get involved and encourage people to get up and dance. But we never steal the spotlight away from the happy couple.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
It's never required but always appreciated.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Yes
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Absolutely, several.
What is your overtime rate?
Varies.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Sometimes; it depends on the distance and circumstances. We will cover that when we quote you a price.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
We require a 50% deposit to "save the date" and the remainder to be paid in full 15 days prior to the event.

Justin Henshaw and his crew at Island Sound are the epitome of a professional DJ and entertainment service. Extremely personable, talented, and unique approach to running events; did a phenomenal job at our wedding reception and our friends have already booked them for their weddings. I would suggest Island Sound to anyone planning a wedding, party, or any other event if they want their guests to walk away having the time of their lives. They'll even pair up with a great band to make your event unforgettable.

I got married August 2, and had a pretty tall order for Island Sound. After attending a Silent Disco in Austin a few years back, I vowed to have a Silent Disco as my after party. Having never seen one done at a wedding before, many DJ's would have said no. But Island Sound and Justin were not only up for the challenge, but eager to help, and made it the most fun I've ever had. With someone less experienced and less professional, this could have been a huge bust, but I did not have to worry about a thing and their first Silent Disco ever was flawless. We discussed music preferences before the event, and he did not disappoint! Everyone was shouting singing along and the floor was shaking from all the dancing. Can't say enough good things, such a pleasure to work with and I really appreciate them accommodating me on my silent disco dream!

ISLAND SOUND IS AMAZING! I can't even put into words how thankful I am to have had such an AWESOME DJ! Mark, you were AMAZING!!! The entire staff is easy to work with and always gets back to you with any questions. Our GOBO projector was a hit and totally worth the extra money! Mark kept the music going all night long and our dance floor was never empty! Everyone complimented how amazing he was and how much fun they had! Even the staff and Sea Palms raved about the music selection. I told Mark to get people moving and he did exactly that! Not to mention he made a last minute change in the music selection so my dad and I had a forever memorable father/daughter dance that everyone went crazy over! It was an awesome experience, you will be so thankful you used Island Sound!!

We had Mark as our DJ. I think he did a great job! He made sure we were ready for everything before he announced anything. He looked very professional. He also had a nice demeanor and spoke well (not cheesy at all!) during any announcements. The music selection he played was really good. Actually, I think he was able to incorporate all the songs on our "must play" list, plus most requests by guests as well as several other songs creating a good mix. The lighting they set up was beautiful on the dance floor.

One thing that impressed me was before we made our entrance to the reception. The hubby and I had put the order for bridesmaids and groomsmen wrong in the initial form we sent him. He went over it with us before we went into the reception, we changed things around last minute and he announced everything exactly the way it was supposed to be.

They were also one of the most affordable DJs I was able to find.

Since they are based in South Georgia and we live in Gainesville, I never got to meet Mark or other staff of Island Sound beforehand, so I'm not going to lie I was a bit nervous. However, I am very glad we chose them for our wedding.

Since they are based in South Georgia and we live in Gainesville, I never got to meet Mark or other staff of Island Sound beforehand, so I'm not going to lie I was a bit nervous. However, I am very glad we chose them for our wedding. Read less

Our DJ was Mike and he was great. We didn't actually meet until just after the ceremony, but I had no reservations about him. During the mingling hour and dinner, he kept the music low key which is what I wanted and after dinner, during the dancing, he kept the variety mixed up with club type music and some Latin songs I requested. All around it was an amazing day! The staff responded to my questions promptly and replied with response-received messages as well. I would definitely recommend Island Sound!

My husband and I knew in the beginning we wanted Island Sound. We've heard so many things about them from many vendors and venues we spoke with when we started planning. We were disappointed at first because the DJ we wanted, Justin, was already booked. But with their reputation as a company we went ahead and booked with them. We were assigned Gary. OMG! Everyone fell in love with him! He was funny, cool and just sooooo right! He kept everything moving and fun.

From our experience... Island Sound is AWESOME! I'm sure all their DJs are similar but you can't go wrong with Gary. Trust us! ;)

From the rain delay and our ceremony speaker position indecision, to the delayed reception start and finally perfect party, Island Sound was on top of everything. Everyone was singing (pun intended) their praises and we couldn't agree more. If anyone asks us who to call for their wedding, it's a no-brainer.

Mark was absolutely wonderful. We truly cannot say enough great things about him. He kept the evening running smoothly (which took SO much stress off of our shoulders) We were worried there could potentially be awkward lulls during the reception, but there was NEVER an awkward moment, thanks to Mark. He knew exactly what to play and when; he knew how to get our guests out onto the dance floor, and he did it all with professionalism and in a totally laid-back way (which we LOVED - he was not at all your stereotypical cheesy DJ - he was completely chill and laid back)
Our guests were coming up to us throughout the night saying, "We LOVE your DJ!" Thank you, Mark, for helping to make our special day so wonderful!

Island Sound was an amazing choice for our wedding! We live in Gainesville FL and were not able to meet with the company in person. However, Justin was great at answering all my questions and concerns leading up to the wedding, he was always very quick to respond to emails and phone calls. Our DJ was Gary and he was wonderful! We had him there for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We had very specific song selections for our event and Gary did an amazing job making sure they were included. Since we did not have a wedding planner, we asked Gary to jump in as the time keeper to make sure the event went smooth and on time and he did a great job! I am very happy with our choice to go with Island Sound and would highly recommend them!

Justin was the DJ at our wedding on Jekyll Island and he really made the night. He did a great job of corralling the guests to the right place at the rights times and had a knack for playing the perfect songs at the perfect times. He had the entire wedding out on the dance floor throughout the night, old people, young people, everyone. Played a great mix of songs that just made people want to get out and dance. He was also very polite, nice, and professional. I had numerous guests comment to me the night of, and in the days/weeks following the wedding how amazing the DJ was, how they had never been to a wedding where everyone was dancing, and how lucky we were to have found such a great entertainer for our reception. Couldn't recommend Island Sounds more!!

Even before the wedding I could tell that Justin at Island Sound was going to do a great job. He quickly responded to any questions I had and was very accommodating. On the wedding day, he worked well with last minute changes and requests. The reception was a blast! He kept people on the dance floor the entire night. He read the crowd well and played the music that kept everyone entertained. We received a lot of compliments about how much fun the reception was, and most of that thanks should go to Justin. I would recommend Island Sound to anyone for their wedding or special event.

Island Sound performed at our daughter's wedding on April 6, 2013 on St. Simons Island, GA. Justin is a professional gentleman that truly gets what people are looking for when hiring a high quality DJ. He played the right mix of music to get people dancing and those that didn't like to dance - they enjoyed the music immensely! It was an outdoor wedding and he knew exactly what volume level to use for all guests to enjoy the music and all the while kept from bothering my neighbors. I would hire Island Sound in a heartbeat for my next event.

They knew how to pace it, how to get the older crowd out and having a good time, kept the younger crowd from getting bored and didn't burden us with a lot of talking. They always knew how to keep the party going and not try to be the center of attention. Everything was just perfect!

Incredible! When me and my husband, then fiancé, were looking for DJs in the area, we kept hearing about Island Sound. They had an amazing reputation. They did not disappoint. From the ceremony to the final farewell, Island Sound controlled everything. Haha... In fact, my aunt was supposed to be the "wedding coordinator ", she laughingly said to me later, "why did you even need me, Island Sound took care of everything."

The music selection was great and exactly what we were looking for. We had some unusual requests. ;) But everyone danced and had a blast, which is the biggest testament to our DJ.

Thank you so much Island Sound. My husband and I strongly recommend Island Sound for your wedding.

I had known Justin from high school as a drum major in band, which is what initially drew me to further investigate upon finding their website....but other things immediately began to impress me. He has infused his company with a perfect balance of professionalism and fun-loving nature. Justin took my (then) fiance' and I out for coffee several months before the wedding and got a good feel for our personalities and what we wanted. He gave us a questionnaire that helped us have thorough and clear communication with our DJ and helped to 'map out' the reception. Tim was our DJ and was extremely courteous, professional, and fun without being over-bearing as some DJ's tend to be. He kept the reception flowing seamlessly and responded to both pre-planned requests and even a few last-second ones without missing a beat! Everyone had a great time. They really make you feel taken care of and your wedding will be in great hands with Island Sound. Keep it up guys!

Justin and the Island Sound Crew were great! I never realized how important it was to have a great DJ. My fiancé (now husband) insisted on having a DJ instead of a band "Why would you want to hear someone imitating the real singer." After meeting with Justin over lunch, we realized Island Sound was worth every penny. Justin and the boys kept the party going and actually kept us on schedule. Everything turned out perfect. I wish I could give a 10 out of 5!

Justin and his team were AWESOME! As my lovely wife (Jenn) mentioned earlier I was adamant about a DJ. It is worth it to spend your money on a good DJ, these guys will serve as MC for your wedding. They will ensure that everything is on schedule and watch your guest to make sure they are having enjoying themselves. Justin really impressed me from the lunch meeting a month before the wedding to his attentiveness on the day of the wedding. It was clear from the beginning that Justin's main focus is the customer, I believe that customer service is the most important aspect of business and Justin puts the customer first. Through out the event Justin and his team were focused on us, they were not only concerned about the music they were also concerned about the things we needed. They continually checked in with us and any time a request was made they jumped on it and made sure it was fulfilled. All of my guests had wonderful things to say about Island Sound and I have there there name and information with several people since the wedding. If you need a DJ then you have to choose Justin and his team at Island Sound they are worth every penny you will spend. These guys do so much more than just play music.

Justin went above and beyond what he was required to do for our wedding. We could not get our slideshow to work on the tv at the venue. Justin took time out of his day to come get my flash drive and burn a DVD for us to play at the wedding. I highly recommend Island Sound to anyone who is getting married in St. Simons or anywhere around there. Thanks Justin!

Justin helped with everything from the entrance, first dances, cake cutting, speeches, garter and bouquet toss and more. I really cant express how satisfied we were with Justin and his ability to run things smoothly through the entire reception. I would personally recommend Justin to anyone who needs a DJ for any type of event. He worked with us prior to the wedding and put our fears at ease. He arrived early to the reception and double checked all the information we gave him to make sure he had everything right. He always returned our calls and emails in a timely manner.

Island Sound was cool, fun, completely approachable and got involved with the crowd without being too much or being cheesy.

We would totally recommend Island Sound! Best decision we made for our wedding.

Island Sound is a great Dj service. I just wish there would've been more communication before the event. The dj had to be corrected several times. He immediately made corrections. The corrections wouldn't have happened if the dj would've reached out to me personally, instead of through a generic online survey. He played old songs from the 90s when clearly my list of music was all current top 40s. My brother had to give the dj a list of songs to play. If it wasn't for him doing so no one would've danced all night. At one point my groom had the dj play music directly off of his (the grooms) phone. The dj was a very sweet accommodating man I just believe more personal communication could've resolved all of our issues.

I hired Island Sound to DJ my wedding and ceremony. He did a great job on the reception, but the ceremony was horrible. His sound died 2 songs in and he had no back up. The DJ approached me as I supposed to be getting ready to walk down the aisle and told me there was no sound, no back up and nothing he could do about it. We only got the sound running by (illegally) driving a car onto the beach and using an adaptor that one of our guests happened to have, so now there's a car in some of my beach wedding pictures. The DJ played the wrong version of one of the songs, turned another song OFF when we asked him to turn it UP and then someone had to tell him to turn on the recessional music. Justin knew of the problems as they were happening and got an email from me a week ago, and I still have gotten no response. I'd recommend them for a reception, but find someone else to trust for your ceremony.

Island Sound responded with the following comments:

The reason for the mishap during the ceremony was simply a faulty fuse in our speaker. Every piece of Island Sound's equipment has been purchased brand new within the last few years. But even new equipment, unlikely as it may be, has the possibility of failing. The equipment has been repaired and we believe it was due to water damage. After hundreds of events and weddings, this is the only event where faulty equipment has kept us from providing proper services. It's regrettable but simply unforeseeable. We apologized and refunded the bride and groom a portion of the total cost to cover the lack of services during the ceremony.

We wish the Bride and Groom the very best!

Island Sound was slated to do our wedding, and after the music for the ceremony was completed (which ran smoothly as far as I know), the DJ informed us that he was leaving and another person would be running the reception music. If I would have known what a mistake that was going to be I would have begged the original DJ to stay. The kid he left introduced our wedding party incorrectly (introducing us, the bride and groom, as our parents TWICE). During the introductions there was NO music playing, making it completely awkward. He couldn't seem to follow the songs we picked out for the ceremony, despite the groom going over them with him in detail before the ceremony. We stood up there for about a minute while waiting for him to play our first dance song- again in silence. He played the wrong song for the cake cutting, and everything in between was silent. It made the whole reception incredibly awkward. Furthermore, no one could understand any of the announcements he made. Once the dancing got going he did a great job, but the start of the ceremony made me feel like it was his first time as a DJ. If you are thinking about using them I would suggest making sure the DJ you get is experienced.

Given the responses this company has made to previous complaints I don't expect them to take any responsibility for anything, which is completely unprofessional. But I do want to share our experiences with future brides who are looking for a DJ.

Island Sound responded with the following comments:

Yes, we take full responsibility for the lack of experience this particular DJ had. This was a unique situation for us.

This wedding was a very last minute booking for us. The wedding planner associated with this wedding, and also a close professional friend of ours called us and asked if we could help out in a last minute effort. It was explained to us that the DJ that was booked for this wedding had backed out the last minute. Unfortunate but not unheard of and certainly not that first DJ we've tried to cover for.

That day was one of our busiest days of the season. I explained to the planner that we were booked up that day and that the only DJ we had available was still in training and not ready to do a wedding on his own. It was decided that perhaps an unprepared DJ would be better than no DJ at all. So despite our better judgement, and through no fault of his own, we put him in this position that he was not fully ready for.

On the day of, I tried staying as long as I could to see that everything went smoothly. I performed the ceremony and got the reception going. But I ran out of time and had to rush to get to my other wedding that had booked us nearly a year ago.

I sincerely apologize for the inexperienced DJ assigned to this wedding. But we were simply just trying to help the bride and groom, in an unfortunate situation with the only resources we had available at the time.

The DJ is back in our training program and will be ready for weddings by next season.

Oh, I hate having to leave negative reviews. Normally, I will give people the benefit of the doubt, and maybe this was just a fluke, but I cannot recommend Island Sound with a clear conscience. I understand that I need to give reasons and I will try to keep them objective. For starters, Justin brought a date to my reception. If that isn't bad enough, she was pushing buttons causing the music to stop abruptly, fade in, and fade out. He was distracted whereby causing him to play the cake cutting song without announcing that it was time to cut the cake. He did come up to me to apologize, though, and played another song which worked out perfectly. He played the wrong song for the garter toss; however, I liked the one that he selected better. Now, when we (the wedding party) arrived on location, we were supposed to get announced; however, the DJ was not in the building. So, we ended up standing on the stairs for what felt like an eternity looking at our guests. Once Justin came back to the building, he came up to us and seemed angry. He took down our names, in the order that I sent to him the Monday before the wedding, and said that, "This is the reason why I like to talk to people before the wedding." He made it seem like it was my fault, which I don't understand since I had emailed him twice with no response back and he had my cellphone number. He announced the wedding party saying my sister's name three times. My husband and I tried to laugh it off. I didn't know this until later, but Justin went up to my husband an asked him if anything was going to go on time. My husband asked what he meant. Justin replied that the cake cutting was supposed to be at a certain time and we were 1/2 hour off. (Justin asks you to fill out a form and email it back to him with your requests for songs, order in which you and your party will be announced, and tentative timing of the reception. I prefaced that part with us requesting him to do what he feels is best and that we trust him but we were sending ideas.) My husband looked at his watch and then asked Justin if he had turned his watch back from the week before. Justin laughed and said that he had not. My husband was frustrated and pointed out that Justin's laptop and Ipad had the correct time. I think that was about everything that I remember that went wrong. The thing that I appreciated was that Justin did try to cover what flubs he could; however, he has a job that he gets paid quite a bit for. I would have expected him to be more professional. I'm trying to not let this be the part of the wedding that stands out to me, but as of right now, it does. So, in short, I am thinking that this might have been a fluke but I was not impressed. Also, I've heard of, "Bring a daughter to work day" but I've never heard of "Bring a girlfriend to work night". No matter how hard I try, I am having a very hard time trying to justify that one...very unprofessional.

Island Sound responded with the following comments:

It's not uncommon, at all, for wedding vendors to bring people along to assist. Whether it be a husband and wife team, friend, assitant or in this case a very supportive and committed long-term girlfriend. In no way shape or form were we acting unprofessional and I dispute any claim to the contrary. She spent the entire night assisting me with the event. She's been with me at many events and has never been distracting or in any way less than helpful. This is the first complaint I've ever received regarding an "unprofessional" partner at an event. Clients in the past have adored her and have appreciated what assistance she has given.

The wedding party arriving was a debacle. Simply put, no one notified us that the wedding party had arrived, nor did we know they were waiting until the photographer told us. Normally, we are notified immediately if not before the bridal party arrives so that we can prepare for the announcement. At which time we introduce ourselves to the bridal party and go over the list of names and pronunciations one last time. This is always done in a separate area and out of site of the guests. In this case they lined up at an awkward location, completely exposed where the guests blocked our line of site and we had no idea they were even there. Once we found out, it was a mad dash to get them announced and out of such an awkward situation. If mistakes were made in the introductions, I'm sure that was the cause.

Everything else went so smoothly it's hard to recall a song that was requested not being played. I remember it was very cold, and despite it being outside, everyone danced and seemed to generally have a good time. Which makes this negative review that much more surprising.

At Island Sound, we always regret the rare but unfortunate dissatisfied customer. We treat all criticisms as constructive and will continue to improve our services to keep similar unpleasant experiences from happening.

Best of luck to the Bride and Groom.

The DJ played the father-daughter song twice before it was time to dance, once while getting pictures done and once at the cocktail reception. The DJ played the end of what was my first dance, not the begging, as requested. I called Island Sound one week ago today and never heard back from them.

My opinion:
Really disappointed with how my experience using Island Sound turned out. I searched high and low trying to find a DJ for my Florida wedding and was thrilled when I found what I thought was a young set of DJs who "got it." Everything was great until two days before my wedding when I was finally put in touch with my DJ, JR. I had a bad feeling when I first spoke to him and wish that I would have trusted my gut. English is not his first language and I felt that there was a disconnect, but he had a nice attitude so I didn't make a big deal of it.

JR asked me to make a long list of songs I wanted to play, which is the opposite of what the owner Justin had asked of me (his take was that providing a long list limited the DJ to do his job.) I had actually already done this, you can see my list here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ArSy2boLPcW1dEl1YlJfa1p6NVM4X1VsQUlra1hSckE&usp=sharing

The list, as JR and I discussed, was a guide of what we wanted played and it was up to him to read the crowd and figure out what else to play to fill the time. I wish I had put on a pandora station instead. It was so bad that my husband requested Space Jam from jock jams to get the worst over with, we had to make a joke of it at some point. My wedding was literally perfect with the exception of the DJ, which was of course what I cared most about.

The only negative part of our wedding day was the DJ. We got married on March 3rd...under not ideal weather conditions. The caterer told Justin to set up elsewhere bc his equipment would get wet. He did not listen so "his stuff was ruined". Every announcement of the bridal party was wrong, our first dance song stopped (for a good 20 or so seconds), dance with my brother stopped and he proceeded to play an entirely different song. He did not do the garter/bouquet toss at all (still dont have a reason why that didn't happen) nor play any of the requested songs I specified on the form I filled out. On top of all of that, he made the biggest mistake he could have made on that day. Once again ignoring the form I filled out for him which stated that there was NO bride/father dance, he proceeded to call me and my father to the dance floor for our dance. My father passed away when i was fifteen...needless to say, that was the most painful thing I have felt in a while. Too bad it had to be on my wedding day as my father not being present was painful enough.
I got back from my honeymoon fully expecting at least an email from Justin apologizing and trying to make things right. NO, not a word. I reached out to him through email thanking him for keeping my guests entertained throughout the night (they did dance and have a good time) but expressed my concerns regarding all of the things that went wrong including the unforgivable announcement about my father. His response was less than stellar. It was the most unprofessional email I have ever received from a vendor. He did not take credit for anything that went wrong. He either blamed me or the weather. He was not very apologetic and did not offer any way to alleviate my dissatisfaction. After sending my initial email, I was told by several of my guests that he was drinking throughout the entire night. Needless to say, I would ENCOURAGE people NOT to use him or his business. He never set up time with me to go over announcements/timing/etc eventhough I asked him what else needed to be done. Having never been married or planned a wedding, i would expect my vendor to guide me through the process.
I am posting this in hopes that nobody else has to feel the pain that I felt that day when he called me and my father to the dance floor....bc he will definitely not do anything to correct/make up for his mistake.

Island Sound responded with the following comments:

This wedding we would consider a "Murphy's Law" wedding. This is also a wedding that makes us reiterate, "Always have a rain plan, and use it if you do." There was an actual tornado at this wedding that touched down less than a mile from the house. A team of storm chasers were actually parked outside. With no regard to our safety, the Bride and Groom insisted that we set up outside. Against our better judgment we decided to do so to make them happy and that was our biggest mistake. In the interest of safety and of the event, we should have insisted to be set up inside. Our equipment kept shorting out due to the rain. At the event, due to rain... we lost a mixer, and iPad and a cordless mic. About $1500 in damages alone we suffered. That's all we'll say. Our reputation speaks for itself.

We wish the Bride and Groom the very best in happiness and joy.

Horrible horrible horrible. Please consider other DJs. Not what you ask for. Basically an iPod with a playlist of songs you want hooked up to a speaker would be tons better. Played songs all the way to the end but made sure to cut important songs like last dance short. Not worth the money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We truly regret this particular bride didn't have a good time at her wedding. But our reputation speaks for itself. After over 400 functions performed, over 5 years in business, even though we try, it's difficult to make some clients happy.

We wish the bride and groom all the happiness in the world and best of luck in the future.
