I cannot recommend Alan’s services enough. He is a consummate professional who is client-centered and cares about your event’s success. I interviewed a ton of DJs, all of whom were high pressure and high priced – at times, I felt like I was dealing with car salespeople. Our experience with Alan was a very welcome departure from that experience. Prior to our booking, Alan did an extensive phone consult with me. Later, my husband and I met with Alan and knew instantly that we had found our DJ. He knows his craft and it showed in that first meeting.

In our experience, Alan goes above and beyond to make your day complete. After a major storm prevented my maid of honor from making the wedding, he worked tirelessly to come up with a solution to make her present virtually, and he was a truly comforting presence in a hectic time. I was both surprised and overjoyed to walk into my reception and see my best friend on an iPad and a projector as they tested out the technology. Later in the evening, my MoH was able to give her toast from 3,000 miles away (even if the venue's wireless was spotty at times). Without Alan’s hard work and dedication to his clients, none of that would have been possible – I will truly remember that experience forever.

As far as the music at the wedding proper is concerned, my guests were really pleased with the music selections throughout the night. We gave him a roadmap of music we liked, and he read the room accordingly. His suggestions for what we should do throughout the night such as choosing a song to close the evening or play the Shoe Game were on-point and very well received. My husband and I danced virtually all night and had a blast.

Alan treats his clients as friends and, by extension, will certainly work hard to make your event a success. Between the rain and the missing bridal party, our event could have been a disaster. Thanks to Alan and our other vendors, it was perfect!

We hired Alan for our DJ for our Winter wedding. Alan was the only vendor who met with us TWICE before the wedding to make sure that he knew our personalities and what we were looking for from our wedding DJ. The day of our wedding we had a few changes and Alan was flexible and able to easily work with the change in room and change in lay out of the bridal party. He knew our number one goal was to get our guests out on the dance floor. He did a great job playing the right music for our guests and we all danced the night away! It was a great day for us and Alan played a huge part in making our day perfect! We would definitely recommend Alan as a DJ for your wedding!

Alan was great! He was upfront about his costs and made our wedding feel like a personal deal to him rather than another gig. Alan helped us put together a really fun time. He gave us ideas we hadn't even thought about and asked all the right questions. Alan was really flexible with meetings, he would drive an hour just so me and Eric could meet him just up the road. Even though Eric and I were still giving details to him on the night before the wedding he made it all work!

He was amazing on the day. Along with our wedding planner he pretty much ran the show. My husband and I could just sit back and relax at our wedding. Everybody loved Alan, he was giving advice to everyone on day. My dad was nervous about giving a speech so he gave him a pep talk.

Alan spent as much time with us during our preparation. He wanted our evening to be as memorable as possible, so he played all the songs we wanted and he even made a compilation of three songs to dance to for our first dance. If you love to dance, Alan is your man...the energy was high the entire night and we had guests of all age ranges on the dance floor the whole night. He will make sure the timeline for your wedding and ceremony are exactly what the wedding couple desires.

Having Alan DJ and MC our big day was the best decision that we made when planning our wedding. The value and personal attention that we received was unparalleled to any other DJ out there; I have met several in the Seattle area and none come even close! Alan graciously provided us with a pre-wedding planning session where he not only ran through the details of what songs to play when and what we expected from him to keep the party flowing, but he also helped us fill in some of holes that were left in our plan after deciding to forgo a planner. He is professional, kind, attentive, flexible, comes with all of his own stereo and mic equipment, and is hands down the best value for a memorable and fun experience! Don't waste precious time by looking anywhere else for your DJ needs! Puget Sound DJ all the way!

Alan is a class act!!

I have always considered my dream wedding to be the GLEE Musical story of my life. Al had all the right music to fulfill this dream.

His consultation was an amazing experience because he thought of things like traditions, rituals, ways to keep your guests entertained, things I had no idea about.

He not only plays music for your ceremony and reception, but he is the MC and he's engaging with your guests and he keeps the trains on track. He helped orchestrate my rehearsal, he has top of the line equipment, and everyone enjoyed the atmosphere that he created not only for our guests but for the beautiful memories that I will always have.

Alan worked extra hard to make sure that my day went as planned and that I got everything and more out of my day that I had planned. I look back at our wedding day and between Alan working with the staff at our venue, my coordinator, to being the voice and delivery of our day - not one thing went sideways and he is the 1 vendor I have to thank for making it all happen!!

Alan was a pleasure to work with. His music selection was great, as an MC he engaged the crowd without being over-the-top, and he was incredibly helpful in planning our day. He asked us lots of questions, and even helped us discover things that were important to us that we hadn't thought about. We asked him to offer opinions and ideas, and whether we agreed with him (which was most of the time) or not, he happily went along with what we decided. I know you'll be happy with him as your dj.

Alan was amazing to work with. He was there for us the entire wedding planning process. Little did we know how important it is to have a good dj/mc to plan your big day! I was on the phone with him the night before the wedding making last minute decisions to the song list and even the morning of I had a couple more changes, he was there and willing to make those changes! For his services We felt like we got so much more for our money, and when it comes to wedding you don't hear that very often! Alan really wanted to help us make our day OURS and no one else's! Our wedding was absolutely perfect and Alan was a huge part in making that happen!

Alan seemed very personable and interested in getting to know us so he could tailor the entertaiment and experience to our likes, dislikes, and intended mood. We felt that Alan was committed to a making this a personal experience for us and our family and friends. We met a few times before the event and he was aware of all the details that needed to be figured out for everything that was planned. He let us decide all that we wanted and was willing and confident in making decisions where when left him the "reigns."

Helpful is an understatement in Alan's involvemet. Without the experience that Alan had brought into the planning and preparation, our wedding would not have went 1/2 as well as it had. We used several of his proposals and ideas. He was also able to give advice on both pros and cons to help us improve on the ideas for our wedding.

My wife and I went back and forth about live music vs a dj for a little while before we decided that a dj was more in our price range. That being said and money aside, the job that Alan did not only as a dj, but as a facilitator in general made me extremely happy that we took the route we did. Everything flowed seamlessly and that is because of Alan's dedication to providing an excellent service. When your wedding day comes, you want to be able to just sit back and take in the moment, and that is what choosing Alan Chitlik allowed us to do. He worked behind the scenes with everybody to make sure everything was moving at the right pace and read the crowd flawlessly. He has my highest recommendation, without hesitation.

Alan with Puget Sound DJ exceeded our expectations not only as our DJ but as our MC. He was a huge help in planning our timeline of events and over all flow of the evening. He stuck to the music we selected for our play list and strung it together in a way that kept people on the dance floor all night. Alan was personally committed to helping make our day unique and special for us, and I would highly recommend him to any and all brides!

Alan was highly recommended from our current photographer, Lucas Mobley, and now comes highly recommended from us. We were in a bind (actually we had slightly procrastinated) and down to our last week before our wedding. We needed someone who would come in a do a great job and do most of the heavy lifting in terms of song selection and setup, etc. We first met with Alan and instantly got along. He's very easy going and listens closely to what matters to us. He was able to work independently and give suggestions along the way. Also his DJ style was such that he wants to keep the flow of the party and listens and adjusts to things as they happen. He told us this when we met him but it wasn't till the actual event where we actually came to appreciate this.

Alan was extremely professional in all of our interactions and in the night of the event. He has top notch equipment which was key to making the night flow. But really more than that it's his great experience in in viewing a crowd and determining how the keep the flow and vibe moving. He would never play a bad song that cleared the dance floor. Instead he would play things that kept people moving when we wanted them.

The best part about Alan is his personality and work ethic. We hired him with very short notice. He worked day and night to put together an event for us and filled in all of the pieces we were missing. He incorporated our interests and found songs to fill the places we were unsure of.

We're both very grateful to have Alan at our wedding and we could not have had the successful night without him.

THANKS!

Alan was AWESOME to work with! So personable, fun and genuinely kind and caring of our big day:) He really went the extra mile to make sure our day was everything we wanted it to be. Not only did we get an incredible DJ, but Alan went above and beyond helping us plan our wedding details timeline. His online planning services were extremely helpful tools and his many hours chatting and planning with us created an incredible trust and friendship that was present on our wedding day! We highly recommend his services. He will exceed your expectations of any DJ and he will be a highlight of the entire experience, no doubt. Thanks Alan for truly caring about your job, your customers and showing a good time through it all!

Alan went above and beyond the duties of a DJ. He met with us several times over the wedding planning process to help us with putting together a detailed timeline, finalizing the timeline, helped with all the little details that couples might not think about (even items outside of just music and MCing), and even provided vendor recommendations when we asked. Whatever problems or issues came up, Alan wanted to hear about them and help in any way that he could. He can be a little slow at responding during his busiest times, but he always gets back to you. During the wedding, he showed up looking very professional and he made sure we kept up with our timeline. He knew how to read the crowd and play what people wanted to hear. He made sure that he checked in with us throughout the night, but at the same time, he dealt with any problems that arose instead of bothering us. Alan also coordinated with all the other vendors to make sure they were in line with the timeline as well. If you are looking for a DJ that does more than just plug in his iPod, Alan is your guy...definitely worth every penny.

Alan went above and beyond to make our wishes come true on the evening. He met with us beforehand numerous times to ensure everything was perfect on the day. I still have guests to this day who rave about Alan and how funny and personable he was on the night. When guests were nervous about their toasts coming up, his demeanor and humor in the moment put them at total ease. He made the evening flow perfectly. Alan was also a brilliant MC! Several guests commented how great he was in that he was never obtrusive, he never took over attention, just easily and seamlessly moved things along. He was there, but not there, subtlety guiding the event with humor and dignity in the best possible way.Al has a great energy and charisma about him. He puts people at ease, has a wonderful sense of humor and bends over backwards to give a client exactly what they're after. We would never look elsewhere when it came to hiring a DJ.

Alan Chitlik from Puget Sound DJ performed the DJ services at our wedding at Sodo Park in October 2010 and was great to work with in so many ways. He offered a generous amount of consultation time before the wedding day to go over logistics, planning and our preferred songs. He was extremely helpful and patient (as we had many questions when it came to the entire process). We received not only DJ services, but Alan also helped prepare us for the entire wedding day process with his experience and background in performing at weddings. We really appreciated his relaxed attitude. As an MC, he was non-obtrusive and left the focus on the bride and groom.

On the wedding day, Alan was a complete professional who helped guide our entire day flawlessly and with ease. Our ceremony was beautiful and unique and the reception was a huge hit with all our guests — from our friends to our parents' friends, everyone was commenting on how fun both the music and dancing were the entire evening.

If you want an affordable, flexible, fun yet professional DJ who helps you think through the entire day and all the "little things" and not solely the DJ aspect, we would highly recommend Puget Sound DJ. Alan was so easy to work with and made our big day even more special and memorable.
