Rich was the best! I would recommend him for any event. He was the DJ for our wedding and played appropriate music all night. Very receptive to requests and made sure everyone had a good time. At a wedding, everyone dreads a song that clears the floor, that did not happen ONCE at our wedding. People were on the dancefloor all night! Also, very affordable.

We had Rich from SoundXpress, he was Ok, Rich is responsive, professional, timely, and affordable but I kept having to ask him to play songs that were on our "Must Play List." My husband and I met with him in advance a couple of times and provided artists and songs, it just wasnt fun to ask him during our wedding night. Also, there were gaps between songs, so wasnt smooth. I would recommend him if you provide an exact list of songs in order of priority.

I thought Rich was great. Everyone was on the dance floor all night. During dinner the music was in the background and nice, then at night, he pumped it up. He downloaded guest requests on the spot. He was really easy to work with and we got a lot of compliments. I've never seen a wedding where SO many people were out dancing for so long. Great job.

We shopped around for a DJ a lot before we found Rich at Sound Xpress. My husband was determined to find a DJ who would show up, announce the various events and play back-to-back good music, rather than try to be the "star" or "comedic host" of the evening. Rich was the right guy. He was mellow and laid back and was agreeable to everything we wanted him to do. He showed up on time, set up his equipment (including speakers and a table with a laptop) and played back-to-back hits that kept the party dancing. Everyone had a fantastic time. He also respected our "don't play list," even after two guests requested the same song.

If you want a DJ that will entertain you above playing good music, there are plenty of those out there. If you want great dancing music and a laid back DJ who lets everyone else at the wedding shine, Rich is perfect! Thanks Rich!
