Book Manny for your wedding and everyone will be on the dance floor until the very end! After we found the church and the venue for the reception, Manny was the very first vendor we hired. My husband found him online as he had wonderful reviews. We met him in person and booked him that day. He was available if we needed him prior to the wedding but he didn't hound us for answers that we didn't have (we didn't decide on our wedding song until 2 days before the wedding!) More importantly, we had more of our guests on the dance floor than off the dance floor...for the entire night!!! We received a lot of compliments about how much fun our wedding was and we truly have to give a lot of praise to Manny for playing a very large role in that. If you want to put on a good party, book Manny to DJ your wedding!

Our DJ, Manny, was great! He met with us a number of times prior to the wedding to work through the logistics: how to mic up our officiant, how to mic up our musician for the ceremony, and of course where to set up his booth for the reception and dancing. He also worked closely with us to get a feel for the kind of music that we were into. The music he played for the cocktail hour was perfect and the dance party got started immediately with his help. Manny was professional, always enthusiastic, and no more prominent than he needed to be. He kept things moving, but allowed the evening to flow as we wanted it to. I'm only planning for one wedding, but if I had to do it all over again, I would go with Manny every time.

Manny is awesome! He was so easy to work with, organized, and extremely upbeat. He kept the party hopping on wedding day with perfect song choices, stellar intros, trivia games, and great enthusiasm. Plus his prices are great compared to the competition. Thank you so much, Manny!

Let's be honest, a wedding DJ can make or break your reception. Behind the music, the DJ is really the reception coordinator. Once the invitations, food, seating charts, colors, cake and so on are set, they "operate" all the moving pieces in an event and make it flow. Any DJ can throw on your favorite songs, however, there is a difference is when you have one who carries energy, charisma and executes all of your most important moments throughout the reception. You spend a LOT of money throwing this party. Don't leave it all in the hands of an amateur. Sound Illusions's blew away my expectations. Manny has a structured approach to his event planning and also comes in with creative ideas to keep the energy moving. In addition to execution, he knows how to read a crowd and when to mix it up. As a result, we had a GREAT reception. Our guests afterwards commented how the dance floor was never empty and complemented us on some of the unique touches to the wedding. Those touches were compliments to our Sound Illusions. As Bride and Groom, we really valued his flawless execution because it gave us peace of mind on a chaotic day. It allowed us to let go and enjoy the reception with friends and family. Without hesitation, we recommend Sound Illusion. Their services are worth every penny. I now know why they've been recognized as one of the best in San Diego.

When they say the DJ can make or break the wedding, Manny definitely made our wedding an awesome night to remember. We were told by many guests that our wedding was one of the most fun ones they've been to. I can guarantee that Manny played a huge role in being able to make that happen. He was very professional and drew lots of laughs throughout the night.

When looking for DJ we wanted someone who could engage with our guests and keep the energy high. Manny has a plethora of experience, ideas and games we drew from to encourage interaction from our families and friends.

Our meetings with Manny were very productive and he offered many great ideas for all the little details to consider throughout the ceremony and reception. My wife and I aren't big music people, but Manny was able to accommodate us by offering great suggestions for songs we could use. He read the guests very well during the dancing and kept the dance floor popping all night. He also played the perfect background music that we suggested during the down times.

His lighting set up was very thoughtful and decorated our venue at Tom Ham's Lighthouse well. The quality of his sound system and mic set ups were also great quality. His sound set up came through loud and clear for both the ceremony and reception locations.

We can't thank Manny enough for doing such a great job and working very well with our vendors to make the night one to remember for the rest of our lives.

We were thoroughly pleased with Manny's service. He was easy-going and flexible in meeting with us to discuss exactly what we wanted and how it fit the wedding timeline. Unlike some other DJ's we interviewed, he played exactly the music we wanted. His announcements during the wedding (grand entrance, cake cutting, bouquet toss etc ) were articulate and professional. During the wedding planning we tapped into Manny's experience to help clarify our vision for the reception. Finally, Manny is a naturally funny guy and dependable, both of which are helpful during the stressful wedding planning period.

We found Manny through our wedding venues list of preferred venders. We got married in September at the Kona Kai Resort & Marina in Shelter Island. From the very beginning Manny was very professional, organized, confident, personable, and just overall had a great personality. Best of all he made us laugh, which is something that made him stand out among his competitors. We knew then that because of him our wedding was going to be a blast for everyone, and that it was. Manny met with us multiple times throughout our time with him which also made us more comfortable and reassured us that everything would go smoothly. He was very flexible and open to hearing our ideas although he had a ton a really great ideas and recommendations of his own which really kept the party going smoothly and kept all my guest entertained. After all he does have over 20+ years of DJing at weddings so his experience was also a big plus for us. My guest would not stop complimenting us on how much they loved the DJ. Manny made our wedding amazing in so many ways, he wasn't just a DJ that played great music, but he did amazing job with the up lighting, and was a fantastic announcer throughout the night, even with tricky hard to pronounce names. We mostly loved how he didn't just play great music but that he kept my guest involved by playing various interactive games; i.e. The shoe game, the kissing game, the anniversary dance, a trivial questionnaire about the bride and groom. Of course this was something we felt was important to us for all the guest to get up and dance and be involved. So if that's the kind of DJ you are looking for Manny is the perfect fit and I would highly recommend him for not only weddings but for any other event. Oh and did I mention his prices are very reasonable!!

My daughter and I had to pick a DJ in one weekend and we were instantly attracted to
Manny at the Bridal Bazaar because of his friendliness and professionalism. Manny provided much needed support by helping us design the timeline, music selections and activities for the wedding and ceremony. He kept all ages on the dance floor and made the wedding so lively. We got compliments all night that this was the best wedding our guests had ever attended. In addition to his music expertise he created a beautiful atmosphere with the up lighting and creative market string lights at the entry way at our outdoor venue at the Bali Hai. I would highly recommend him for any wedding and plan to use him at my younger daughter's wedding in the future.
