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.

I consider myself a rather honest reviewer, and of all our vendors for our wedding, we hands down recommend Sound Illusion for any and all DJ/emcee services. I would happily use his company again, as he left such a positive impression on my husband, myself, and all of our guests! We were surprised at the amount of good positive feedback we received the night of our wedding, and most of them were for our DJ and entertainment!

It's amazing how important a DJ is for your event. My husband and I asked around to our event planner friends, and most of them recommended Sound Illusions for their affordable price and best investment for the amount we paid. They weren't wrong! Manny's services were one of the best things we paid for for the wedding and we couldn't have been happier to have him there. Thank you so much, Manny, for being such a wonderful presence and setting the mood for our wedding. Would recommend him in a HEARTBEAT over all other DJ's we have experienced!

Manny provided DJ services for our wedding. I received many comments from our guests on how awesome our playlist was. My husband and I had selected songs from several different genres, and Manny made the music flow perfectly. Most of our guests ended up getting on the dance floor, which is exactly what we were hoping for. Manny came with an assistant which worked well so he could move about and orchestrate the events taking place. He also provided up lighting which beautifully complimented our site. We were very lucky to have found Manny. I would highly recommend him for any major event!

Manny is very nice and easy going. Make sure you contact him as he can sometimes get too busy and not be in touch till a couple days before the wedding. You definitely don't want to wait till the last minute to make your playlist.. My biggest mistake. But manny still managed to keep the party lively and the dance floor full!

Hi Mara & Emil,

Thank you for letting us be part of your special day and thank you for the feedback. Yes, our final meeting is usually the last week before the wedding and prior to this we did meet 3 times including the walk thru at the venue in Temecula. I did provide you a wedding package with all my music for you to highlight song you would like played and the interactive on-line music database tool to select music electronically well in advance. I know with the busy schedule that we all have, I do make every attempt to return calls within 24 hours and meet with my clients when requested anytime. Also, It was nice working with your hired Wedding Coordinator behind the scene ironing out all the wedding detail prior to the big day. I am glad that the wedding was flawless and the music that you did provide us we were able to play the entire list. Thank you again for letting us be part of your special day.

Manny
