Choosing Sound by Design was one of the best decisions we made while planning out wedding. The dance floor was packed from the first song to the last song. They are more pricy than some other DJs, but I think it was well worth it. I wanted our guests to have a blast on the dance floor, and they did not disappoint. They also handled the music for our ceremony and string lights above the dance floor. All was excellent.

This was our best vendor selection by far. We met with about 4 different DJ companies and, though SBD is the most expensive, they are worth every penny. During the planning process, Chris was great with setting up our timeline, providing suggestions, and being respectful of our time during the reception. He kept ALL of our guests on the dance floor through the very end of the night. He replied to questions within 24 hours (usually a lot less). They're an incredibly well-organized company that offers excellent service and more music than you could ever need.

Sound by Design was one of the best decisions that we made while planning our wedding. We were given individualized attention throughout the planning, from helping to select the perfect songs, to the guidance they provided regarding the scheduling of the event. Sound by Design’s lighting package really brought our venue to life and kept the party going well into the night. The photo booth was so much fun! Definitely one of the highlights and the pictures have been so fun to see! The sparkly silver background matched our amazing chiavari chairs and tied the room together. We are still getting compliments from our guests talking about how much fun our wedding was, and we credit that to Sound by Design. If you can get them, book them today!

We were really nervous about booking a DJ for our wedding, but Sound by Design was extremely responsive and flexible. We ended up booking a basic DJ package, which included ceremony music and reception music, as well as a photo booth. The booking, meetings, and wedding were absolutely fantastic and it was worth every penny! During our meeting before the wedding, we met with our specific DJ and we went through the timeline of events for the big day. Bottom line, we felt very at ease, and I can't recommend this company enough!

Excellent customer service from start to finish. Torie was attentive and listened well to what we wanted, and had the right energy level for our wedding. He played music for our wedding, the cocktail reception as well as the dance, and he nailed the music perfectly for each portion of the night. The lighting looked fantastic and really set off the space. We had a packed dance floor and people didn't want to leave at the end of the night! We would highly recommend Sound By Design, and especially Torie.

I cannot say enough good things about our DJ, Nate. He was friendly, responsive, and accommodating-- he even downloaded a hard-to-find song during the reception when it was requested! And he kept the dance floor full all night. Sound By Design is the best!

Sound by Design does an amazing job and I highly, HIGHLY recommend working with Joe (Joseph DeBroux, in case there is more than one "Joe"). He was really nice, super smart, flexible, accessible, and down to change things on the fly when I (the frazzled bride) changed my mind a few times last-minute.

He was also chill about brainstorming or just taking things off our hands when we needed him too, which is really nice when you're in the last stages of wedding planning and feeling overwhelmed. When I asked him too corral people for speeches and let them know what was happening, he did that and announced them during what he judged to be appropriate times during the dinner (I just couldn't deal with it). He was perfect.

He also just has great taste in music. While my husband and I were pretty firm about what music we wanted for the ceremony, we felt too busy as the date approached to come up with specific songs for the reception (and input them into the Sound by Design's rather confusing website - they are a fantastic company but when it comes to your song requests, you have to input them in detail (Artist, Album, Song) press send, and then go back to the main page to input another song). Joe was completely laid back and told us to go ahead and send him any songs we wanted via email, which was a lot easier. When we told him what kind of music we liked (in really vague terms: top 40s and old school pop), he nailed it and got us and everybody else dancing like crazy people after dinner.

Basically: I've been to a ton of weddings and Joe was by far the best DJ I've experienced thus far.

My husband and I wanted our wedding to be fun for all of our guests (as all couples do of course), but we had been to other weddings where the music did not get people on the dance floor. This was not the case for our wedding, thanks to Sound by Design. We had the pleasure of having Nate DJ our wedding and he did a wonderful job. He took our information from our Sound by Design account (no play list, play list, etc) and what we discussed at our meeting and made it happen. He was able to "read the room" and get just about everyone out on the dance floor at some point. For the amount of time that we had, we were able to offer music during our cocktail hour, dinner music, and a full night of dance music all for an affordable price. Working with Sound by Design was always professional and easy. We would recommend Sound by Design (and Nate) to any couple looking to book their wedding.

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with David Hackbarth at Sound by Design. Dynamic Events by David Caruso in Milwaukee put together our wedding, which merged a Traditional Western wedding with Indian elements to add a multicultural twist. David did an amazing job at incorporating all of our song selections (from the very handy Sound by Design Web Portal) flawlessly and seamlessly. He even was able to cue up certain songs without any direction at the most perfect and appropriate times, while incorporating Indian music without interrupting the continuity of the event. We had multiple comments from guests about how great the music was, and how it fit our tastes. One guest even stopped us during dinner just to say that she knew that we picked songs, since the soundtrack to the night fit the bride’s tastes perfectly. David was also kind enough to work with the best man to put on a video montage and accommodated any and all impromptu guest requests without any hesitation. David was ultra professional, while being down to earth and friendly; and, he accommodated all of our needs. If you are looking for a tailor-made customizable experience with professionals- Sound By Design is the place. We proudly recommend David Hackbarth and Sound by Design to anyone looking for DJ services- they truly made our night a special and memorable occasion that was totally our own unique style.
