Alex was our DJ, and our wedding would have been better if I had asked an inexperienced friend to do it and put our music on shuffle.

First, he announced our names incorrectly, disregarding the form that we had previously filled out, and acted offended when I pushed the issue until he corrected himself.

After that, he completely neglected to do our honeymoon dance, which means that we lost out on hundreds of dollars from guests, because he couldn't be bothered to read paperwork.

They seemed unable to communicate with the venue directly, and my husband and I had to do all the legwork ourselves.

We gave them a must play mp3 CD (that they had asked for), and only 5-6 songs of this playlist, even though they asked for 30-35 songs (we gave 35).

On top of this, several guests requested one of the songs on the must play playlist, and he continually lied about having that song to play. He only, finally, played it when guests gave him direct orders from me, the bride, because I knew he had it. Then he proceeded to make an announcement DURING this song, even though I asked him to make the announcement AFTER the song (as this was the song that got the most people on the dance floor).

Beyond that, NO slow songs were played. This meant that the older guests were left sitting for almost the entire event, if not the entire event. The DJ started with intense, up tempo songs, and never slowed down.

I don't know if I could've had a worse DJ for my wedding, which is very frustrating, because I spent hundreds of dollars on the service, when, once again, an inexperienced friend or relative would've been more professional and respectful for free.

My wedding was a week ago and sad to say I was very disappointed with sound connections. Working with Paul the owner was a great experience very nice guy and easy to work with. However, I was assigned DJ Paul Estrada which he contacted me a few days before the wedding to finalize details etc. Two days before my wedding paul the owner calls and tells me and tells me that I have a new DJ and he's an "all star" DJ which I'm thinking wonderful. Never did the new dj contact me and try to get the details for my reception which he was suppose to be the MC for the night. So my husband and I arrive t the reception and immediately we were pulled away and asked to meet with the DJ. Really? I spent most of the night answering his questions when this could've been taken care of the day before or even the morning of the wedding. Not to mention he didn't even have the bridal party entrance songs ready to go. There was awkward silence between switching gears and songs. He replayed a song back to back at the end and he was a horrible Master of ceremony. All-Star?!? I hope not! I always give credit where it's due but I was very disappointed.

My daughter's wedding was held on March 13, 2013. We used Paul Estrada at Sound Connections which is owned by Paul Olson. Mr. Olson has a number of DJs and other services at his disposal to provide to his clients. Mr. Olson met with me personally and assigned my DJ needs to Mr. Estrada who did a phenomenal job! He confirmed the details of the song selections I had submitted prior to the event. He arrived very early to the venue to become familiar with the venue layout and to determine where he would need to set things up. Since we did not have a vocalist for this occasion, we relied heavily on Mr. Estrada to provide all our sound and music needs for both the wedding ceremony and the reception which took place at the same location. Mr. Estrada was very professional, dressed the part and was very focused on what he needed to accomplish. He was well spoken and did not have any fear of speaking in the mic getting the guests involved in getting out on the dance floor. He directed the activities such as the bouquet and garter throws, along with recognizing the longest married couples, and the orchestrated the line to see off the bride and groom. Everyone had a great time dancing the night away! I would use this company again. You can't go wrong booking with them!

We had a hispanic wedding and music is VERY important! We paid a little extra for DJ PAUL but it was definitely worth it!! Not one second did we have dull or slow or dated music! He definitely knew who he was playing for and balanced out perfectly between pop, salsa, merengue, and the must haves!! Had a lot of compliments on him and would definitely recommend!!

Paul was extremely easy to work with. After completing the work sheet describing musical preferences and the order of events, he took the ball and ran with it. I didn't have to worry about anything. When we arrived at the reception after the wedding, he was set up and ready to go. The ebb and flow of the reception was perfect. The guests had a great time - especially the dancing.

This was another vendor that was chosen by the Pelazzio (my venue), but yet another top notch choice by them as well! I cannot say enough good things about Paul Olsen, the owner of this company (who also happened to be the DJ at our wedding). He was very responsive to our special requests, and gave us some very good suggestions when choosing songs. He was involved just enough to help speed things along (cake cutting, garter toss, etc.), but also stayed out of the way just enough to ensure that things were flowing naturally. What I mean by this is allowed people to come up and make requests (I was okay with this) but still made sure that the order of events were getting done, and also talked us through the events as they happened (gave helpful hints during the garter toss; helped get people out of their seats for the dollar dance.) These are all very important things that your DJ must do. I would highly recommend this service to anyone that is looking for a DJ.

Paul Olson was great to work with during the planning process. My groom and I were pretty specific regarding the music and order we wanted things to happen. Paul is the owner and handed us off to Peter for actual night. Peter was great! He did a wonderful job in keeping things moving along and checking in with us to make sure things were on track. we used their basic package and overall thought they were a great value.

I was very happy with owner he was great helping us figure out and plan the flow of ceremony and reception and helping with some choices. The DJ was great even having to change some last minute things. The only thing I could say negative is there were a couple of songs we had on our list that werent played that were special to us. I also wanted more of a hype guy.

DJ Alex (aka Cubanito) did a great job by keeping everyone on the dance floor. We specifically requested a bi-lingual DJ and could not have asked for a better fit. Alex moved the party along but did not abuse the mic. He was also flexible when we asked for a slight change during our reception.

The key to the success we had was the fact that both Alex and the owner, Paul, really listed to our wants and desires. They did not try to upsell us to services that we did not want or need. The best part of it was that he did not play any songs from our DO NOT PLAY list!

I have very mixed feelings about this service. I was impressed with the way they ran their organization and with the friendliness and professionalism of the people I worked with prior to my wedding. I could also tell that the DJ had experience, which was helpful during the event. However, I paid for an "All-Star DJ", which costs $1,000.00 and felt that there were certain things the DJ should have done differently on my wedding day.

As a reasonable person, I understand that a DJ not doing everything I want, instinctively, is nothing to be upset about. He was personable, friendly, and seemed to understand how a wedding should flow, which was something I expected due to my being sold an All Star DJ, so I appreciated his expertise in this area. However, I did have an issue with a few ways the DJ handled himself.

I specifically wrote "No Requests" on my service form prior to the wedding. I provided the DJ with "Dinner time music", which he played for a while, until guests began to request a certain genre of dinner-appropriate dance music. Again, this was something I had no problem with, and did not mention anything to the DJ.

However, prior to booking the DJ service, and during the entire consultation period, I was very specific about the type of music I wanted played after the cutting of the cake, etc. I wanted it to be free and fun dancing, as opposed to slow dancing, swing dancing, shag dancing etc. During this time of the evening, the DJ stopped playing songs that fit this description (including departing from the "Must Play" list) and played this slower music, intended only for couples to dance to. The dance floor cleared, except for one couple. I approached the DJ and asked him not to play any more of this type of music. Again, I don't blame him for attempting to please the guests, I don't expect him to read my mind, but it was his reaction that displeased me.

Instead of apologizing or reverting back to the music I had selected, he began to rationalize his choice, saying that he had a lot of guests wanting that type of music. (This would again be one thing if guests were not dancing, had requested this music and then filled the dance floor upon hearing it... quite the opposite was true, with even the mother and father of the bride leaving the dance floor when he played this selection). He proceeded to attempt to change my mind in regards to the music I played, at which point I asked him to only play the types of music we had previously decided upon. I felt that I couldn't leave him with those instructions, and had to ask him rather forcefully, as a polite request from the bride didn't seem sufficient enough.

After this point, I felt that I had to continue to check back in with him to see what he would be selecting, every few songs, so as to keep the momentum on the dance floor. Not wanting to micromanage, or worry about this, I walked over with one of my bridesmaids, and gave him the instruction that whatever she requested could and should be played. (The only time I specifically mentioned that requests should be taken. Again, the type of request taken during dinner was appropriate, so it was not a problem).

At this point, all of my bridesmaids had seen him try to rationalize his song choice, and felt that he had essentially talked back to me, as opposed to the "customer is always right" attitude I would have expected. Throughout the evening as myself and my bridesmaid attempted to have the music stay on track, he did play some good songs, and seemed to understand what the crowd wanted to hear. He also allowed the music to "crescendo" as we had previously discussed, playing big crowd hits at the appropriate time, and having guests gather for our exit, all of which was appreciated, and one of the benefits of a DJ with his level of experience.

However, during this time, I felt that I had to send someone to watch and ensure that he played the music I wanted to hear. There were a few flubs in the timing of things (attention to get the cake cut, having guests leave the ballroom for the departure) but due to the size of the ballroom and the sound capabilities, I don't blame the DJ for these minor errors. I realize that no wedding is perfect, but the DJ should have changed his reaction to myself, my bridesmaids, and my guests.

After the wedding, we were due to play a final song, for myself and the groom to dance to, which I ended up scrapping, as guests lingered prior to our "departure". The DJ again tried to explain himself, the music he played, how it was what our guests wanted, but I felt that he needed to play what the bride wanted. My bridesmaids and I felt that he talked back to me, in essence, and they felt disrespected on my behalf. After our departure, the Dj proceeded to get into an argument with a bridesmaid (she had to politely tell the groom and I that we had no more time to talk, as our guests were lined up in the hall with bubbles), and she later missed our grand departure from the ball room.

All of this being said, I wish that the DJ had honored my wishes, as the bride, and in accordance with all that we had discussed prior. I don't fault him for attempting to please the guests, but I do fault him for attempting to please a certain group of guests over the bride. The reaction to the types of music was very clear, as guests were on the dance floor during the music I had discussed with him, and when he played the requests of the certain few guests, there were 2 people left on the dance floor, again, with the mother and father of the bride departing from the dance floor. I wish the DJ had instead apologized, saying that he was playing 1 song for these guests, and intended to return to my playlist for the remainder of the evening. This would have pleased the small amount of guests that requested other songs, while returning to the dance music the vast, vast majority of guests wanted. It would have also allowed me to relax and not feel the necessity to place a bridesmaid in charge of "checking in" with him, and would have left no space for the DJ to "back talk" me, my guests, or appear to be unaccommodating to myself or my guests.

Great! Our DJ, Frank, was wonderful! He didnt talk too much, took time out to meet us prior, and helped us with lighting! We went with the all star package and the full lighting package, and it was well worth it! Our room looked incredible! And it was all due to the lighting! Frank played everything we asked and we had a great time! Everyone was dancing all night long!

Our DJ, Koerte Knight with Sound Connections, was excellent! He took the time to meet with me prior to the wedding on several occasions to answer any questions that I had about the flow of the reception and the music to be played. We paid more by going with Sound Connections than another DJ had quoted us, but we are so glad that we went with Sound Connections because it was well worth the extra money. Not only did he play music (and get EVERYONE out of their seats), he played games and got the crowd involved. Our music selection was also not the norm because I requested to have some Persian music played at our reception and he had no problem playing it. We provided him with the CDs to play and instructions and he kept everyone dancing. I HIGHLY recommend these guys! They are great!

The DJ was great! What I liked best is that he really got the crowd involved! He didn't just stand up there and play music, he really responded to the actions of the crowd. If everyone liked a certain kind of music, he kept playing it, and also took requests! He worked well with my time line and had good suggestions to give me! Thanks for a great night!!

This is the PERFECT wedding DJ. We went with the 'All-Star Package' and it was the most fun wedding I have ever been to because of the MC. He was awesome- he got people dancing who usually refuse to dance! They're easy to work with, they REALLY DO listen to what you have to say about your favorite songs and they just try and get to know you and incorporate some of what they learn about you into your wedding music. For example, my husband and I bonded long ago over a favorite band and they played that band at our entrance, which was special becuase they found the perfect song and it was really fun and original (mainly because it was Metallica- but they made it work!!). I loved them. Best vendor at my wedding! Deserves more than 5 stars!
