Manny and his team are AMAZING! They kept the energy alive at our reception. Everyone complimented us on our DJ choice and we couldn't be any happier with their service. They also did the uplighting and ceremony music. Everything was beautiful.

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

Thank you for making our Wedding PERFECT!

Amazing, Amazing Amazing!!! Manny was so wonderful, he was so kind, he came with us to meetings with our venue, he worked with our coordinator to ensure he followed all procedures precisely, he was very professional. He made sure we had a mix of all different types of music, and that everyone was having a great time. He was on time, replied to all emails and calls promptly. He also did our uplighting which really made our reception space look beautiful, such a great job. Manny is just an overall nice person who loves what he does, and truly cares about the bride and groom. I highly recommend him!

Manny with Sound Illusions was so easy to work with, from beginning to end! Manny worked with myself and my (now) husband, to create the perfect playlist to get our guests on the dancefloor. The entire wedding party and all our guests were on the dancefloor the entire night. We had an absolute blast, and we can thank Sound Illusions for that! Extremely friendly, professional, timely, and organized. You can't ask for anything more in a wedding vendor. Thank you for making our special day so memorable!

I am highly impressed with the team this company have. Manny is very friendly, accommodating and extremely likeable. He is so easy going and very flexible with schedule. Sound Illusions recently provided music at our wedding and really got the crowd going. My husband was in charge of the DJ and I did not meet the DJ who would be at our wedding and didn't know what to expect but they were above and beyond my expectations. They got the crowd excited, kept them entertained all night with their games and last but not least, provided AWESOME music. Everyone enjoyed themselves and I have Sound Illusions to thank for the GREAT party! Thanks guys! -The Pecache's.

Manny at Sound Illusions was amazing and exceeded our expectations!! First off, he is very easy to work with, responded to all our emails and phone calls right away. I interviewed a few other DJs and he blew the rest out of the water! He was organized and very flexible, willing to do exactly what we wanted for our wedding. He even came to our wedding rehearsal free of charge so we could practice with the music. He also downloaded free of charge any songs we wanted to play that he didn't already have. He also met with me a few times before the wedding to go over timeline which was included in his package. He was able to extend the song my bridal party walked into because they took so long and I didn't want to pick another song. I asked Manny for limited talking on the microphone and he totally listened to me, he was not cheesy at all and very nice to my guest. At the wedding he and his assistant played every song we asked for and was able to please our diverse crowd. The dance floor was packed the entire time and I seriously liked every song they played. All our guest told us how much they loved the DJ and everyone booed when the music had to be turned off due to our reception site! I promise you will not be disappointed with Manny, I am very picky about DJs and he was perfect, he will listen to you and do whatever you ask!! Best part, super reasonably priced!!!!

When speaking with our guests after the wedding, everyone of them has brought up the DJ and the fun atomsphere that the MC Manny and his crew created. All the guests were incredibly impressed with Manny and enjoyed all the games and activities that Manny played with the guests to keep the ceremony moving and a lot of fun.

Manny was incredibly professional and was responsive to questions through email or phone within days. Also, upon signing a contract, we received a spril book to help guide the wedding script and select music, so Manny had a better idea about our music tastes. Being a planner, this book was very helpful. When meeting with Manny before the wedding to finalize the script, Manny went through every single detail with great care. We had various song requests and little stories that went with them. On the day of the wedding, Manny included all the little details and stories (there were quite a few). Guests were easily able to request songs.

We used Manny for both the ceremony and reception. He even attended the rehearsal to help go over the details and practice.

After the wedding, we have had several guests request his number to use their services in the future. Without a doubt, I would use Manny again for any event. Absolutely fabalous!

We were referred to Sound Illusions through a couple of friends that have used them before. I knew from the beginning they'd be easy to work with. I'm not the kind of girl who always dreamed of getting married, so when I got engaged - planning our wedding was the biggest project of my life (I?m sure many of you can relate). I was stressed about colors, timing of our program, and everything just 'running smoothly'. I didn?t know what songs I wanted for our entrance, cake cutting, father-daughter dance, etc.. i just knew I wanted to hire them because they did such a good job with our friends' weddings. Not only does Manny MC - but he's been in business for so many years that he does everything else! He got our gobo for us and did all our uplighting. Mind you, I swear I was the biggest pain in working with him to find the right color - our colors were black, purple, and silver with white accents. I met with Manny 3-4 times to get the color right, and I felt horrible about it - but he worked with me and was suuuuuper friendly throughout the process. Reggie is the DJ and I gave him a list of songs I wanted played throughout dinner/dancing, etc - and that went smoothly too! At a couple of our vendor meetings, I told him I loved old school jams and he threw in a whole bunch that everyone loved =)

Manny/Reggie do an EXCELLENT job of getting the party started and keeping it going. In fact, a lot of people were upset that our party had ended and wanted it to last even longer! :x Yikes, haha. then again, that's called a job well done right? ;] WHAT A GREAT TEAM!!!
