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 met with us prior to our big day to discuss and plan the essential details. We were unsure about what songs to use during our processional and recessional; he took the time to talk with us, find out what we liked, and suggested the perfect songs! Our guests were up and dancing the majority of the time during our ceremony.

Chris was a great DJ. We felt like he truly cared about us, listened to our wants and needs, and went above and beyond to make sure that our big day was amazing. Everyone had a great time!

Chris was such an amazing DJ... we could not have asked for a better DJ for our wedding. Everyone was dancing and enjoyed the music and his fun antics. Tons of our guests kept telling us what a great time they had at our wedding and what great music there was. Soundwave is the BEST DJ company ever!!!

Chris was AMAZING!!! He listened to what we wanted, he incorporated our unique style into all elements of the evening and he played all of the songs on our Must-Play list (and none on our Do-Not-Play list). I danced all night long!!! The hits kept coming!

We had some concerns that the sounds/base would echo and sound awful at our large venue, but Chris made it work and it sounded nothing but amazing.

If ever I need DJ services in the future, I will definitely be hiring Chris again!!!!

Chris and all of the staff at Sound Wave are excellent! Chris was extremely helpful and professional, and we received so many compliments about his services on our wedding day. A newly engaged couple that attended our wedding is booking them for their own wedding! Everyone had an amazing time, and the dance floor was packed the entire night! Chris was very helpful in helping us pick ceremony music and other song choices such as the cake cutting, bouquet toss, entrance, etc. He was also very helpful in planning and coordinating the timeline for the entire day. I highly recommend you choose Sound Wave. The DJ makes the wedding fun, so you need to pick an excellent one!

We first discovered Chris Rao at a friend's wedding at Fort Belvoir before we were engaged. As soon as my groom popped the question, I knew we had to hire Chris for our big day. He has been such a professional, patient, and friendly person to work with from initial planning to the big day. He was also excellent at keeping the events of our wedding, cocktail hour, and ceremony on track throughout the entire evening. My family and friends love to dance, and he did an excellent job of playing our requests and also mixing in a few tunes of his own choosing to complete the playlist. He was extremely easy to work with, and really made our day such a fabulous event. We also discovered that he is very familiar with the staff where we held our event, which was another plus when we were planning our wedding. On top of handling all of the details independently for our big day, he showed up professionally dressed and really knew exactly how to conduct himself. Chris is incredibly professional, and is an expert in his line of work.

Sound Wave Entertainment is the best DJ service around! This company is very personal and made sure that my husband and I were very pleased. We personally got to work with Chris Rao and he was just the absolute best ever!! We got so many compliments on our music selection and it was all possible thanks to Chris. We told him the genre of music that we liked best and he played all the right stuff. I would recommend and I continue to recommend this company to everyone I know that is getting married. You will not be sorry!

Thanks so much Chris,

Ashton & Tyler

Chris Rao was our DJ. He was awesome! Chris arrived early even though we didn't need a DJ for the actual ceremony he came to set up early. It was pouring like a girl on her wedding day's worst nightmare outside but since we chose this beautiful outside vineyard for our wedding and had done all this planning we decided rain or shine it was happening outside. Chris, the amazing guy that he was offered to stand outside in the rain and hold an umbrella over me and my dress since he didn't have anything to do during the ceremony! how sweet is he! I mean he wasn't even being paid yet! Anyway my dad actually held the umbrella for me so he didn't have to but the thought was just so nice! I also remember him asking people inside like other vendors and stuff if they needed help with anything (and this is all the stuff he did having nothing to do with what he was there to do!)

We pretty much told him a couple songs we really wanted to hear and which songs we hose for the first dances and entrances and such and then gave him the types of music my husband and I like and let him have free reign with it and he really did an amazing job from start to finish. Even just the types of music played during our sit down dinner were great. He was great mixing country/classic rock/ pop/hip hop/ everything! From the moment that we opened up the dance floor it was non stop. we had so much fun dancing the night away and so did every one else. Chris was an awesome DJ and he really made the our wedding night a spcial night!

Dan was the DJ for our wedding and he was fantastic! It rained right before our outdoor ceremony, so we really appreciate the fact that he was willing to set up in the rain and get his equipment a bit wet. During our reception, he kept the dance floor busy the whole night and even got the older folks dancing for a while! Chris Rao and Dan Trencher were so professional, patient and very organized when my mom and I met with them. I felt completely confident that Sound Wave Entertainment was going to do a great job on my wedding day, and they definitely did not disappoint! Thank you Chris and Dan!
