DJ Christian was a pleasure to work with! He met with us prior to the event to gather the songs we liked for our reception, and we were very happy with both the dinner songs and the dance floor songs he played. He kept everyone on the dance floor until the last minute of the reception. We received many compliments on the quality of the music during and after our wedding.

The only hiccups occurred during the family and bridal party introductions at the reception location. The bride's parent's last name was pronounced incorrectly and had to be corrected via one of her parents shouting the correct pronunciation. Also, a bridal party couple was introduced twice, right before the bride and groom introductions, creating an awkward pause and some confusion among the bridal party. When the bride and groom were finally introduced, it was as "Mr. and Mrs., Dr. and Mrs." also leading to some awkwardness at the outset of our entrance, and a little hesitation and concern on our part that the rest of the night would go smoothly. Our concern was unfounded, however, because the music and the rest of the services were absolutely perfect.

Aside from wishing there was a little more preparation for the wedding introductions, we loved every minute of Selective Sound's services. We also purchased and recommend the uplighting services that they provide, which created excellent ambiance both during dinner and on the dance floor.

Overall we'd recommend Selective Sound to friends and family, perhaps with the caveat to double check those introductions.

Jay R was great! Not only is he a pro with music, but he helped us plan the flow of your reception to ensure that the party was always hopping and our guests didn't get bored. He was also very respectful of our more conservative guests and kept music tasteful. Hand down professionals, through and through.

From beginning to end, Jay R made sure we were taken great care of. His quick replies, his reminders to keep the ball rolling and his recommendations made the planning process so easy. Top notch professionalism. The day of, Jay R and his staff made sure our day was perfect. Our guests had a blast and our tent and surrounding areas were lit up beautifully. What more could you ask for? Our guests are still complimenting on how much fun they had- and we have Jay R and the Selective Sound team to thank for that!

Selective sound was great! We planned a wedding for my husbands post deployment leave and we only had 6 months notice, then our DJ friend stopped being responsive so we had to find a DJ last minute so it was on relatively short notice. I called around and Jay R was so personable, informative, and responsive. They were really great. He selected Marcus as the DJ and he was awesome! We have an eclectic taste in music so he was able to personalize everything for us and make our day special, not just playing the popular music. We were running late on our timeline on the wedding day and he was understanding and customized everything to fit our needs. We also got uplighting for the venue and it turned out beautiful! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ!

Though Jay r from Selective Sound was not our assigned DJ for our wedding he was fabulous to work with on the management level. He kept in great contact with us throughout the process and let us know that a month prior to our wedding we would meet with our assigned DJ. He was extremely accommodating when we requested a change in DJs a week prior to our event as the one we were assigned did not mesh with our personality. Our new DJ Patrick was absolutely amazing. The guests raved about him all night long!! We took a gamble with not meeting him until the day of our wedding but it went as smooth as can be. We had a technical glitch with the microphone during the father of the bride speech which was unnerving for my dad however that was the only wrinkle in the evening.
In addition to everyone being so amazing to work with, Jay r provided a complementary upgrade in our package for our ceremony and reception which was greatly appreciated. I can't recommend Selective Sound enough!!!

We went with selective sound pretty early in our wedding planning process because they were the preferred sound company for our venue and upon doing research we've seen a lot of good things about the company. We are still amazed at the level of service we actually received. We were contacted plenty of times throughout the process to make things easy and every one of our needs were met to the highest of standards. We had Marcus as our DJ and it couldn't have gone better. Marcus supplied us with plenty of great times, his music selection was so on point and timely. I couldn't have done or scripted it better myself. He was a great host/mc and even was nice to all of our needy (and crazy) guests. It's been a month since our wedding and I still have guests telling me how awesome our DJ was and I've refered him to several people. Thanks again Marcus, you helped make our wedding unforgettable!

If you want your reception to go off without a hitch - I highly recommend JayR and his team at Selective Sound. We began our process meeting with JayR to discuss DJ, photobooth, lighting, etc. From our first meeting - everything was seamless. JayR was timely in responses, never left me feeling over or underwhelmed, professional and knowledgeable. Being a Bride who wanted to feel that nothing was left out of my day - JayR quoted everything under the sun that was a possibility to add into our day and we made decisions from there. We had uplighting, floor washes, GOBO's, pipe and drape, photobooth, dancing on the clouds, DJ and a sound system for our ceremony, (although I am sure I am missing something else SSE did for us!) Rick, our DJ, we met a few months before our wedding day. We gave him a very tall order. No requests, no line dances, club vibe from beginning to end! This was not typical for him as he said he usually likes to take care of the entire crowd for weddings and play songs from all genres and for every age group to appease every guest. We were adamant on him sticking to our wishes and he did! Literally - from after our first dance until the end of the night - there was not an open spot on the dance floor. It was bumping and packed the WHOLE evening. He played from our request list, songs that he chose, and even a few requests that ended up being perfect!!! Later in the night he played some 80's songs that made the very few people in their seats get on the dance floor. My uncles were happy! Seriously, could not have asked for a better DJ! He was timely with our evening, went in the exact order for speeches, dances, etc. He even played a hurricane horn which is an inside joke with my husband and his groomsmen! What DJ has a hurricane horn on queue?!?! It was everything we wanted our reception to be. If you want the best DJ, the best detailed oriented team - JayR and Rick from Selective Sound are your guys. Cannot praise them enough!!! THANK YOU!

I highly recommend Selective Sound. We hired them mainly as a DJ, but also added on their lighting package, ceremony sound package, and photobooth. All aspects of their services were awesome! Jay R was very responsive and helpful throughout the whole process; just having him coordinate and manage all the details will keep your mind at ease. Our DJ was Mike, and he was great as well! He took the time to meet us prior to the wedding to get to know our tastes, likes, and dislikes, and on the night of the wedding he was a fun DJ/MC! We had many guests mention how entertaining he was. Ask for him if you can!

Jay R was absolutely AWESOME. The process from start to finish and the actual event was seamless. The dance floor was packed the entire time and he played the perfect blend of music to keep the crowd engaged. Out of all of my vendors I would say Jay R was one of the best if not the best investment we made. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ in NE Ohio.

Our DJ Jay R and Selective sounds were absolutly incredible! From the very first meeting we had to the wedding reception everything went so smoothly. Jay R took the time to listen to us and help us incorperate everything we wanted to at the reception. He is a super nice guy and very professional. He kept the dance floor packed all night and knew exactly what music to play and when to play it. We have gotten so many compliments from guests that were at our Wedding on what an amazing DJ we had. They did a great job with the uplighting as well. It made the venue look very beautiful. We also rented a photo booth through Selective Sound and that was a big hit ! The photobooth attendant was very professional and fun and helped all of our guests with the photobooth. We would reccomend Jay R and Selective Sounds to ANYONE for their wedding.
