It's All About You isn't just a saying. It's something I truly believe in. Wheather you're looking for a DJ for a wedding or any other event Sounds Great Entertainment will make "your" event a special one.

When doing a wedding, I believe it's all about the bride and groom. The DJ should be fun but not over the top. I always make sure to work closely with the photographer and wedding coordinator as to ensure the reception runs smoothly. A wedding is a very special day and as a DJ I’m here to provide the best entertainment the client can get. Check out my web site to see the slide show from some recent weddings. I am also a proud member of the "American DJ Association" and carry full liability insurance. I have different price packages depending upon your needs. Be sure to ask about our up lighting package!!!!

I look forward hearing from you soon. You may reach me at: (727) 541-6862 or (727) 643-7102 or via email at soundsgreatrp@aol.com Read less

Rick was a pleasure to work with from our first initial contact to the final song of my daughter's wedding reception. He was prompt in all of our communications, very professional in every way. At the reception, he did a great job keeping things moving, fulfilling every request made by the bride and groom for an enjoyable evening. I would have no hesitation using Rick again or recommending him to anyone needing his services. 100% satisfaction!

Rick is highly recommended or your DJ/Emcee needs. He drove all the way from Pinellas Park to Lutz to discuss my daughter's plans for her ceremony and wedding. He responded to every email promptly when we had questions. The ceremony was outside in a park with no electricity and he was able to bring in his equipment and a battery operated amp and supplied the clergy with a microphone. He then ran to the reception and started the cocktail reception music. He was a great emcee when the dinner service began. He did everything we asked for!

I highly recommend Rick as a DJ for a wedding reception. Rick responded to my emails and phone calls quickly and professionally. Prior to the wedding, Rick reviewed music selections with me as well as allowed us to provide a specific play list. At the reception, he engaged with the guests, but not intrusively. It was perfect. His professionalism was absolutely A plus. Rick is an asset to any party!!

Rick from Sounds Great Entertainment helped to make our daughter's wedding day perfect! He tailored all of the music, from start to finish, according to her requests, and had the guests engaged throughout the entire reception. He was very flexible, and very quick to reply to our emails/requests, and was extremely professional the whole way through.

Rick is someone you really can count on. He gets involved, knows his music and it doesn't take him long to know your guests. Rick reached out and worked well with the Bayou Club Event Director to make sure everything went smooth from the first champagne toast to the last dance. The end result is an uninterrupted and successful flow of the wedding. Rick dynamically worked our wedding for over 5 hours. He arrived and was completely set up with background music playing before the guests arrived and he was the last to leave the reception. He was dressed in a tuxedo to fit the occasion (he had asked us what we preferred he wore). He listens to the client, comes prepared, has excellent timing and understands how to be flexible with the crowd. I have Rick's number tucked away for safe keeping. Not only would I highly recommend Rick, I will always use him. He definitely is an overall 5 star DJ.

Rick did my wedding at the Gand Plaza Hotel and did a wonderful job. Everything from the ceremoy to the reception went flawless. Rick even helped us through the entire planning process as we did not have a wedding cooridinator. My friends were raving about how much fun they had at the reception.

DJ Rick was AWESOME! I've had the pleasure of knowing Rick for years so naturally, he was the only choice for our wedding! Of course, he does more than just play music; he announced the wedding party as they entered, made special announcements throughout the reception, encouraged everyone to dance, and much more. He really made it a great celebration. We made a lot of special requests about music and he played them all. Many guests commented about how professional and entertaining he was. We had a great time and he made our day even more special!
We (Gregg and I) would like to thank you for everything and would definitely recommend Rick to anyone in need for a DJ!!
