The address listed on the webpage is misleading- they are located in Gainesville and can travel to northern VA. Contact them they are great! We had Chris as our dj and we loved him. He kept the music going and the people dancing! Even when the groom requested his sports team's anthem, Chris was able to find it and play it. He met us free of charge before our wedding, just so we could meet him. He even gave us advice on other vendors. Details of services: offered a discount if you paid in full, provided indoor and outdoor speakers, microphones and outdoor microphones.

Soundwave Entertainment was the best choice we could have made for entertainment and lighting at our wedding! Wendy was amazing to work with and has a heart of pure gold. We had originally hired a band that did not work out and in a panic I e-mailed her if they still had availability for our date this close. Not only did she get back to me right away to confirm they did, she called me from the airport on her day off because she did not want me to stress waiting for her response. Our uplighting for the event was beautiful and perfectly captured the romantic feel I wanted for the ballroom. Vinny and his assistant DJ Ray were so fun to work with and did a great job entertaining the crowd and keeping the flow going. Vinny is extremely talented and kept our dance floor full the entire night. We had family members I would have never guessed to be out there breaking it down on the dance floor. That was all because of Vinny and his choices in music and mixing capabilities. There was never a dull “might as well grab a drink” moment for anyone and everyone had such a great time! Thank you Vinny, Ray and Wendy for a night we will never forget. We truly had the time of our lives! I highly recommend Soundwave Entertainment for your wedding DJ and uplighting!

Sound Wave Entertainment was a preferred vendor for our daughter's reception place. I checked out their website and was drawn to the DJ Chris Rao. I contacted him and my daughter, her fiance, and I all met with him. He was so nice and laid back - I knew he would be perfect for the reception. He did not disappoint. With a few glitches in the evenings schedule, Chris informed me what was going on and somehow kept everything running smoothly. After dinner, the dance floor remained crowded - everyone had such a good time!! Chris even kept the youngest guests entertained with glow necklaces or bracelets. It was such a fun evening thanks to Chris. I've already booked him for my next daughter's wedding in May! I would highly recommend him!

Chris Rao was the Dj we met at EverGreen's Bridal Expo this past Winter in Haymarket, VA. He was so laid back and friendly. He really makes the whole stressful wedding process seem like a breeze. I wanted to book him on the spot, and did! When my Fiancée met him, he said the same thing about how Chris really puts you at ease and lets you know he is there for you every step-of-the-way. Chris was so patient waiting up to just a few days before our wedding for the final song choices. He didn't miss a beat on the wedding day, and we really couldn't have asked for a better DJ/coach to walk us through our reception:) We highly recommend Chris Rao and his company. And might I add, we never gave him a song list per se, but informed we would like a mix of 70s rock, 80s, old skool hip-hop and current/modern songs. He had the perfect balance of music that everyone wanted to dance to, and I even had a few people ask me for the playlist, haha. Thanks again Chris, for making our wedding day so enjoyable.

Chris was great. He was like a 2nd wedding coordinator as well as a great DJ. He kept our wedding running smoothly from the ceremony all the way to end of the reception. The DJ and music was by far one of the most important things to us and I'm so happy we had Chris. He had the right energy, was well organized and professional and love the choices he made when it came to play certain songs. - Carter and Susan

My husband and I actually met Chris shortly after getting engaged ourselves at our friends' wedding which we were both a part of. We had such a great time dancing away at our friends' wedding we asked them for their DJ's name. Our friends has nothing but positive things to say about Chris and raved about how organized and helpful he was coordinating the evening for them. Up until then, I had no idea how much the DJ plays a part on your timeline and event coordinating. At our details meeting he listened to what types of music we wanted and really paid attention to what type of crowd we had on the dance floor and selecting the perfect songs--everyone had a great time! Chris was also great working with me, the groom, my photographers, and venue coordinators. Again, not something you think about but you don't want your DJ to announce your father daughter dance and your dad to be nowhere in sight. Or, announce the cake cutting ceremony when your photographer took a moment to use the restroom and wasn't able to capture the photo. He really pays attention to detail and works with everyone in a professional manner to make sure you have the most fun reception! I would highly recommend Chris to new brides to be and other customers with DJ/music needs alike!

We loved working with Chris. He was very professional, was able to use the songs I wanted where it was important to me and provide the perfect songs where I left it up to him to choose. My friends and family were up dancing the ENTIRE night and I kept hearing afterwards how much fun they had.

I cannot stress enough what a wonderful DJ Chris was to work with. Our wedding what truly magical with several unique events and inclusions, and Chris orchestrated the entire evening absolutely perfectly with not one hiccup. Moreover, the entire party was jumping all night long. I don't think one person wasn't on the dance floor and it was because he played the right music to excite our guests. I recommend him over and over.

When my husband and I met Chris to go over our timeline and song choices, I could tell our day was going to be stress and worry free. I felt I could depend on Chris to keep us on track and we wouldn't have to worry about a thing. Our day was absolutely perfect!! We danced the night away and it was because he played the right music at the right time. I would absolutely recommend him!

Chris Rao was our DJ and he was absolutely AMAZING. To make it simple, our guests had so much fun that after the last song played everyone chanted "one more song! One more song!" I've been to other weddings where the DJ struggles to get the guests involved and moving, but Chris did an amazing job! He met with us to discuss the vibe we wanted and truly put our vision to work. He was able to mix in music that would appease the older crowd, as well as the younger crowd. The father-daughter and mother-son dances were done tastefully and did not drag out too long.
