Wouldnt recommend these djs to my worst enemy. They dont return calls. They dont follow all your requests. We requested that they play nice music as our guests started to come in to be seated for the wedding ceremony and they played rock music. They basically play what they want. Nothing is catered to your needs.

Our wedding would not have been what it was without Sounds of Music! The whole process with this company was very professional and enjoyable. We did not have any issues with contact prior, we were able to turn in all of our songs and information through their website and Jim & Jill responded quickly through email and phone. Our DJ could not have been a better fit, he went over everything with us the week of our wedding & was even able to adjust to some last minute changes the day of. He was personable and kept the whole night running smoothly. Much of the night was a blur trying to keep up with all of the guests, but he coordinated with our hall, photographer, etc. to get us through all of the events. All of our requests were played & he did a great job of reading our crowd, the floor was packed all night & our guests are still buzzing about it! Music was most important to my husband and I, they say the music can make or break your wedding. Jim and his company are long standing in Toledo and they definitely lived up to their reputation. We could not be happier, thank you!

People are still talking about the music at our wedding reception! We had an amazing night and a packed dance floor. Devon was the best DJ and so fun to work with. He called a few days prior to our wedding and we were able to talk things through with him and really got a feel for what we wanted at our reception. We would recommend Sounds of Music and Devon for anyone's wedding reception!

Our requests were somewhat unusual- we requested mostly current Christian rock- and the DJ was very flexible, finding and playing everything we requested (even the unusual acoustic versions.) He kept the reception flowing smoothly, played appropriate music for the mood, and "went with the flow" when spontaneous things happened. This company has over 30 years of experience, and it certainly shows. We were very pleased.

As others have noted - getting a hold of them prior to the day is difficult, and yet they complained of not knowing the details of the wedding set up and where to be on the grounds... The outside wedding required a mic, which cut out several times for the singer and readers during the ceremony. The DJ for the reception was insistent on deviating from the planned schedule of events (dances, tosses..) several times during the event. When given a CD of tradidional family music to play during the dollar dance, he played one song then started playing what he thought was best, and had to be instructed to stick with the CD. Towards the end, he actually managed to play one of the few songs on the "no-play" list. They did have a good sound system and did a good job annoucing the events. They seem better suited for parties or events where little co-operatioin or special demands are required.

They were very nice but they pronounced our last name wrong and one of the grooms mens name wrong when introduced into the reception. Quite a few of our tops songs we wanted played didn't get played. They were perfect for the ceremony, though. And everyone else seemed to have a blast at the reception.

I had a few problems with this company, first it was hard to get a call back from them and you ALWAYS had to leave a message you could never get ahold of someone right when you called. My next issue that I had was I emailed the owner the names of all the people in my wedding party the night before and he even emailed me back to let me know that he received them. Well when we showed up to the reception hall right before the entrance I had to give the DJ all the names again and he kept miss spelling them, when I would corrected him he told me it didn't matter he was only saying them once! Well apparently that was the problem that he was only going to say them once because he messed up half of our names. The worst part of it all was my Husbands brothers were all his groomsmen with the same last name and he got those right, except when we made our entrance he mess up OUR name! Even after it was brought to his attention he NEVER corrected it nor did he apologize to us! Last but not least they don't seem to pay attention to the "Must Play" list because we had ONE song which was never played and didn't he didn't seem to care about our requests!

I was overall very pleased with Sounds of Music, and our DJ that evening was great...he would play any song we requested and was very flexible with what we wanted, when we wanted it. The only complaints: he did not arrive at the wedding until almost 6 p.m., which was when the reception was to start (everything was set up...he just was not there, which made us nervous), and we didn't have a direct number to reach him at...which brings me to the next difficulty: The company has an answering service where you call, leave a message and they get back to you. You can never directly call a DJ there. I understand that this may work well for them, but when we needed information right at that moment, it was a huge hassle.

The DJ did a wonderful job though, and I would definitely recommend them...but make sure I forewarn people of these difficulties so they know!

They are not the greatest at returning your calls. Also, once you have everything set up, it seems like you have no communication with them...it just turns off unless you call them and then wait a week or two for them to return your call if ever. The DJ that showed up was dressed real nice and professional, however, he had smoker's teeth and bad breath. He checked with me before making the announcments to make sure that he was pronouncing everyone's name correctly, which I appreciated. He was not on the mic much at all, which was nice...he didn't steal the show and was not annoying. The setup looked professional but then he left at the end of the evening in a beat up old van, which was kind of weird. It just did not match the professionalism. Anyway, all in all, I would still recommend them.
