James and Joanna are the most amazing team. They went above and beyond for us and we are so honored to have had them on our wedding day. Their energy and professionalism mixed with fun and laughter made the best time. Jim really worked with us down to the last song to make the music as personalized as we could get it. Our ceremony was flawless and everything we hoped for came true. Joanna really captured us and our joy and everyone happiness. We are so very blessed to have found sound wave!!!! It was like we were working with old friends and family

My husband and I are from New Jersey and chose to have our destination wedding in Key West, Florida. I chose SoundWave as our DJ based on wedding wire reviews, Facebook videos of wedding receptions Dj'd by SoundWave, and a positive review from a bride who had used Jimmy at her wedding recently. We could not have been happier with our decision to have Jimmy as our DJ!!! I spoke to him on the phone to get an idea of his style and from our first conversation, he was super friendly and easygoing. He answered emails quickly, returned phone calls, gave suggestions for songs when we could not decide, and seamlessly tied together our musical requests. His no-fuss attitude made my husband and I feel comfortable and confident in his abilities to get everyone up and dancing all night at our wedding..and that is exactly what happened! His flawless transition from the mother/groom dance to 'Happy' got every single guest out of their seats and dancing the night away! He played an array of music genres and made the event a huge success. We cannot thank you enough Jimmy for being so easy to work with and so great at your job. Thanks again for a night to remember!!!

A lot of issues with microphone rental and costs (at one time was not going to honor a quote they provided in an email), speakers at ceremony cracked and went out through most of it, DJ was great (Shana) and the reception proved smoother than the ceremony. Still issues regarding how much all of the services cost.

Jim was our DJ, and his wife Joanna was our videographer. They are both energetic, focused, and very skilled. Jim kept the crowd moving and managed to work in all of our favorites. At the same time, he was incredibly flexible to changes we requested during the reception. Joanna managed to capture so much of the event, its hard to believe there was only one of her! She even put together a 15 minute highlight reel for us to show at a second reception the following week. It was perfect. They were wonderful to work with and I recommend them both very highly.

My daughter and her future husband hired Spyder to be their DJ for their reception, what a wonderful DJ, he was very professional & he kept everything moving the entire night. The moment he started playing music for guests to dance, they were up and dancing. I do not think that there was a time that the dance floor was empty! His choice of music was spot on, we had guests that ranged in age from 78-5 years old and Everyone was up dancing until the very end of the reception.
I hired Joanna to do the video for my daughter's wedding, as this was a destination wedding we had events planned every evening. Joanna was able to customize a package for me that allowed us to have her for our Welcome Dinner, Catamaran Booze Cruise and the day of the wedding . She was great and the guests loved her! Joanna was professional and blended in so at times you did not even know that she was there filming. Everyone of our guests were excited that the events were being filmed and have asked me about getting a copy of the video when it is finished. Do not hesitate to use Soundwaves of Key West, they are great and worth it. Love you guys!

I am so completely happy with our choice to use SoundWave for our DJ services. They were responsive from the beginning and organized all the information we gave them incredibly well. The music was FANTASTIC and people danced right up until the venue shut down. Also, not being incredibly well versed in the order of weddings myself, our DJ was excellent at giving us cues for speeches and such to move the night along in a timely fashion. We are 100% happy with our choice!

We hired SoundWave at the recommendation of our wedding planner (We've Got the Keys). We couldn't be any happier. Jimmy C followed everything we requested prior to the wedding including our play and do not play list (though I am sure some of my guests would have preferred he cut out my Brittney medley). Jimmy was able to keep the night fun and entertaining not only with his DJ skills, but also with the couple of comments he would make throughout the night that made my guests and I laugh. We would recommend hiring SoundWave.

We had DJ Jimmy at our wedding and reception. In my opinion, music can make or break a wedding reception. He made my night perfect!
Jimmy made sure he had all of my specific song requests for the ceremony and set a great vibe during cocktail hour.
At the reception, I dance till I dropped. Jimmy did a great job with song variety. He was so much fun getting the crowd worked up! Some of the best parts of my wedding were on the dance floor, and included sing-a-longs and a conga line. I strongly recommend SoundWave; ask for Jimmy!

He followed our playlist and made the night the best! Joanna, the videographer, did an awesome job! We barely knew she was there. The highlight video she created makes me cry, laugh, and smile.

Soundwave provided the DJ services as well as the AV equipment for our ceremony at Ocean Key. Soundwave did a great job following our play/no-play list we gave them before our wedding. The music they chose helped drive guests to the dance floor the minute it was time to start dancing until the minute the reception shutdown. The songs our DJ chose not only fell into our desired genre but also were those that ensured we got our guests singing along and really getting into the dancing.

The only areas I would recommend improvement are not huge but worth calling out. The first, (which is most significant), is that the AV provided during our ceremony should have been louder so our guests could hear all that was said by our officiant and the bride and groom. Only the officiant was given a mic - it would have been better if the bride and groom received one as well. Finally, the DJ chose an intro song for myself and groom to be introduced which we would not have chosen but was not an option for us on their worksheet. If we had the opportunity to choose that I would have been more satisfied.

GREAT SERVICE, GREAT TIME! We planned out months before our wedding and were able to communicate to Soundwave what we wanted and what we didn't want. Fortunately, they have video clips of various DJs that do work for them and you can pick and choose who you would like. We were VERY fortunate to have DJ Sean who did an excellent job for us. We were able to choose lists of songs we wanted prior to the reception, but Soundwave and DJ Sean were very open to changes as we went along. On the reception night, Sean kept tabs on the vibe of the crowd and changed things up to keep things moving and everyone having a good time. We would recommend Soundwave for your next event. Fairly priced, easy setup, GREAT TIME. You'll love these guys!

Soundwave was very professional and a great addition to our reception. The week of our wedding we decided to add on a slideshow, they reassured us we could rent the equipment and had us send a digital copy to confirm it would read ahead of time! That really put us at ease and they were able to handle this addition. Our DJ Spyder was awesome! He was simply easygoing, fun and a natural. He didn't seem "corny" or to try too hard. He had comical input throughout the night and really made our dance a hit! We did provide a list of 80+ of our favorite songs (which was not required) but wanted to be sure that our favorites made the cut. Our guests are still talking about how much they loved the DJ and the songs that were played! I would definitely recommend Soundwave for all of your wedding needs.

DJ Shawna from SoundWave was the DJ for our daughter's wedding and did a great job for us. She listened to the bride and groom at our pre-meeting and played the type of music that they wanted and kept everyone on the dance floor the entire evening. Every request that we had was played during the course of the reception. It was clear that our guests loved the music and had a great time. She was engaged and fun and made sure that everyone was having a good time.

We were disappointed with the DJ. We selected Jimmy V because everyone said he was the best DJ on the island. Everyone has bad days and I am thinking maybe we got him on a bad day. Here are the reasons we were disappointed:

1. I never saw him or met him…he never introduced himself or interacted with the bride and groom.
2. The groomsmen tried to request songs and all said he was very rude. In fact, he told one of the groomsmen that he would only communicate with the wedding planner and that they should not be coming to ask him for song requests. I should let you know that we only had two groomsmen in the wedding party so how bothersome could two people really be?
3. We sent Soundwave a list of songs we wanted to be played. I did not hear many of the songs I was really hoping for.
4. He was not reading the crowd at all and several times his choice of music seemed to kill the vibe.
5. We could not hear the speeches b/c the volume was so low. After we sent the planner over to have him turn up the volume, the volume was no longer an issue. I would have expected him to conduct a sound check before the reception started to get that right.

Of all the vendors I selected for my destination wedding, the DJ was the only thing I would have changed. I think we could have done better with an ipod and speakers. We tipped him $50 but I only did that because I felt bad tipping $0.

SoundWave responded with the following comments:

Jennifer, I am sorry that you feel disappointed, and I am sorry to see this review on our Wedding Wire, as it stands out from all the wonderful reviews we have gotten here. As there are two sides to every story, the following is from the DJ of the wedding Jimmy Villegas:
I am extremely saddened to read this review. As a professional DJ, I take this very serious. I do not agree with the points made in this review and offer my side to each apparent problem.
1. I did not introduce myself because I did not want to interrupt their dinner. I started earlier than contracted with dinner music. There were no formal introductions of the wedding party. After dinner, we went into first dance and cake cutting followed immediately into dancing. This timeline made it difficult to introduce myself since I was mixing music.
2. I never told a Groomsman that I would only communicate with the wedding planner. After discussing the official timeline with the wedding planner, I was told toasts would take place after the soup course. Before the soup course, a Groomsman approached me and asked for the mic to do the toast. Being surprised, I asked the Groomsman if the wedding planner knew he was doing toasts. He said it didn’t matter they wanted to do toast at that moment. I was not rude, I handed him the mic. Sure enough, 2 minutes later, the wedding planner returned with the mic and said the soup course had not happened yet and toasts would wait.
3. 99% of music played came from the requested playlist AND direct requests from the Groom. In fact, Groom actually selected songs from the playlist and songs he wanted to hear at that moment. At the peak of dancing, Groom was selecting songs back to back to back. Below is a list of the songs I played directly from the requested playlist.

There is more, but I guess we are only allowed limited anmount of space here? Jim Cooper, SoundWave

My wedding planner recommended SoundWave, and we were thoroughly impressed. As we were contacting them for DJ services, we saw that their brother and sister-in-law are Senses At Play Photography, and if we booked them all together, we could get a great package deal for DJ, Videography, and Photography. We're so glad we did! We sent them the list of all of our songs we wanted for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, and they did a great job of taking it from there and playing other songs that were similar-- we loved every one! We wanted to do the "Shoe Game," and Jimmy called me about two weeks before to find out if we had found questions yet, etc. and I told him I would send them to him once my husband and I compiled them-- well, time got away from us and we completely forgot. As we were taking our first look pictures, Joanna said something about it and we both froze-- she said, not to worry-- they came up with a bunch, and they were great!

Jimmy also did a great job of transitioning from one event to the next, he wrapped up our dance songs (first dance, father/daughter, mother/son) if/when we gave him the look that we were ready to move on, and even announced that we had made a WedPics account, since I completely forgot to give the little table tent cards to my planner to place around on the tables! Everyone we talked to said our wedding was the most fun they had ever been to, and I cannot thank SoundWave enough for making it so! Brides in the Keys will definitely not be disappointed if you choose SoundWave as your DJ!

We would highly recommend DJ Shawna from Soundwave. Soundwave was easy to work with and has reasonable rates. DJ Shawna met with us before the wedding to go over songs for the various parts of the reception (entrance, cake cutting) where she made some great suggestions. During the reception, she tailored the music to the mood of the crowd and everyone had a great time.

My father even asked if I had hand-picked every single song! Jim even managed to get my non-dancing groom and groomsmen on the dance floor! Thanks SoundWave!

Jimmy was incredible! He did such a fantastic job! We gave him a short list of requests beforehand but totally trusted his judgement on what to play and when. He was great at incorporating our requests. He also did an amazing job at reading the crowd and if it seemed the guests didn't love a song he would seamlessly switch to a new one. Everyone loved him and our guests danced the entire time! After meeting with Jimmy in person a few months before the wedding, I knew he would do a great job, but completely surpassed my already high expectations. So many people told us the music was great. Thank you Jimmy!!!

DJ Spyder performed at our wedding at The Southernmost House and was great!! He had guests on the dance floor all night. For those who don't know, you can only have music outside at The Southernmost House until 9pm due to a noise ordinance, so Spyder was able to move the music inside at 9pm without my guests literally missing a beat!! I sent Sound Wave a list of music that we wanted played and Spyder made sure to play virtually all of our suggested songs!! It was a great night and we have Spyder to thank!!

We are so thankful that we picked Sound Wave Productions for our wedding! They were easy to work with in the planning stages and on our big day. DJ Jimmy read the crowd well and kept the party going. Several friends and family members told us it was the most fun they've ever had at a wedding. That definitely holds true for us!!

Our reception was held in an outdoor venue. We were surprised to learn (on our wedding day) a reggae festival was happening just outside the gates. Although we could hear the festival during dinner... we completely forgot about it during the dancing... thanks to our DJ and his party leading skills!

I would highly recommend Sound Wave to anyone looking for a DJ in or around Key West!

During the planning process, everyone at Soundwave was very responsive to my emails and adequately answered all of my quesions. We also had them do our uplights which were perfect! Sean even got some "dancing lights" going when the dance floor started to liven up! We were extremely pleased with their services and would recommend them to anyone planning a Key West wedding!

Weeks later, everyone is still raving about how much fun they had. The music selection was perfect because he played songs that guests of all ages could enjoy. Jim also helped my father plan a surprise song for us to dance to that I did not find out about until it was time for our father/daughter dance. In addition, whenever I needed to reach Jim, he answered me right away. He was also very flexible and professional. Thank you, Jim, for helping to make our wedding a success!

We had Jimmy from Sound Wave for our DJ he was a great MC, had a great personality. The reason I gave him a slightly lower rating was because we had sent him a full list of music we wanted played for the reception, our wedding planner came up to us and stated that he said we didnt provide one. I told her we did and she took care of it. He started playing songs on our list so I am not sure what happened, but it all worked out. Overall everyone had a good time and danced away. Jimmy is super personable and friendly.

Sound wave did an excellent job with our wedding entertainment. From the beginning, my fiance and I had stressed the importance of music to our planner and she assured me that Sound Wave would be the best fit. There are a number of reasons I'm thrilled I chose them. I emailed Jim on the off chance he had a somewhat rare song that we wanted for our first dance...and he had it! He helped us to double check everything so we knew exactly what to expect for our dance and the dance with my dad. I gave him an extensive list of our favorite songs; I was worried the mix would be too eclectic and that he would have to change it up to work with the crowd, but he made everything seamless. My now-husband was so excited to hear some of "his songs" during the reception merriment and that made me so happy. Even though I worried that no one at our small event would dance, guests of all ages were on the dance floor having a great time all night long.

There are a number of reasons I'm thrilled I chose them. I emailed Jim on the off chance he had a somewhat rare song that we wanted for our first dance...and he had it! He helped us to double check everything so we knew exactly what to expect for our dance and the dance with my dad. I gave him an extensive list of our favorite songs; I was worried the mix would be too eclectic and that he would have to change it up to work with the crowd, but he made everything seamless. My now-husband was so excited to hear some of "his songs" during the reception merriment and that made me so happy. Even though I worried that no one at our small event would dance, guests of all ages were on the dance floor having a great time all night long. Read less

Jimmy was the DJ for our destination wedding and did a fantastic job of keeping guests dancing the entire night. Joanna provided the videography and from the short clip I've seen, it looks great! Both were extremely professional and very responsive to my emails and quesions throughout the planning process. We were extremely pleased with their services and would recommend them for a wedding!!

Soundwaves DJ Sean was great!! He was a very nice person who ran things smoothly and kept the party going! We had a list of songs we wanted along with specific things we did not want and he stuck with our directions perfectly! He was not intrusive at all, took requests from guests at the reception along with those watching it on the Hogsbreath website! What a fantastic wedding reception!! Thanks for being great!

Overall my experience with Soundwaves was a good one! They were well organized in getting the song list from me, and even reduced the fee to meet a competiors rate.

I felt like the reception went really good! The music lined up with what we liked, and no one was afraid to hit the dance floor! Jimmy is a good MC for sure.

My ONLY real gripe... is that I felt the speeches were a bit rushed, like first speaker, ok next speaker, and we ended up having two speakers NOT speak. Of course in the haste of the day I missed that they didn't talk, and that was a little dissapointing. However, I think that is something that kind of gets lost in the excitement of the day.

I also was a little dissapointed that he didn't ask myself (bride) or my Husband if we had a few words to say.

So, my only forewarning, is make sure to communicate to them the order of your speaches, and who EXACTLY you want to have their time to say a few words.

Overall though, great DJ, great taste in music, and we ALL had a GREAT time!

DJ Jimmy was awesome! It was almost like he was inside my head the entire night! DH and I weren't too big on the first dances so Jimmy kept his eyes on us and all I had to do was give him "the look" and he faded out each song and into the next.

I was thrilled to have Jimmy help us create memories on this special day!

STAY AWAY!!! That is, if you think you want to have something to say about the music played at your wedding. We asked Sound Wave to play island music during the cocktail hour. They played...whatever they pleased (common, commercial music you can hear whenever you turn on a radio). The excuse: it had rained during the ceremony and the cocktail hour was reduced to 60 minutes from 90 (maybe you buy this, I didn't - what did it have to do with the music selection they played?)
The reception was ok (in the sense that our playlist was taken into account), but the DJ played only dinner music for the longest time, with no dancing. The joke among our guests was "we are in Key West, music travels slow down here." Imagine how happy I was to hear this on my wedding night. I had to go to the DJ 3 times myself to ask him to play some dance music. He smiled and continued to play the slow stuff. When I went to him the third time, he asked me what song I wanted him to play - you may think it's nice, but the reason you give him a big list of songs before your actual wedding is that you do not want to (or should) think about what he should play in the middle of your wedding reception.
In all fairness, the way the venue organized the dinner is also to blame, but a DJ should know a dead party when he sees one... Some of our guests left by the time dance music kicked in, and I was afraid to sit down or talk to other people, fearing that he would go back to the slow stuff again. Awful, devastating experience.

Jimmy with Sound Wave DJ'd my event and he really was FANTASTIC! The music was awesome and he had great song selection. He came recommended by someone else and I am glad we decided to use him for our event. He was on the more expensive side but I think he was definitely worth it. He was very nice and professional as well, and thats the type of person you want around you on your wedding day!

We had such a great experience with Jimmy and Sound Wave from the beginning of our DJ search. He came highly recommended by the resort we held our wedding at and now we know why! Jimmy was extremely responsive from beginning to end. He provided just what we wanted for our wedding, music wise. We gave him a pretty specific list of songs that we liked and wanted to hear. He played these songs and also added some great songs that he knew we would like. Thank You Jimmy for starting the party at our wedding!!

Great DJ! I had to do nothing the whole night because the DJ played all the right music from the ceremony to the end of the reception, the dance floor was never empty all night and everyone had a great time! I was overplanning every detail and never ended up submitting a list of songs (except for our "spotlight dance" songs) and I should've never even worried about it, they had it covered!

Jim Cooper (Top Jimmy) did an awesome job at getting everyone out on the dance floor and keeping them out there for our entire wedding. He didn't talk through the wedding as I've seen some DJs do; he just kept the party going. Jim played a mix of music and included our requests that we sent him prior to the wedding. The music set the mood and made our wedding such a fun party! Jim was also great at helping us identify a Steel Drummer for our wedding ceremony and cocktail reception and he provided all of the sound equipment for the ceremony (a microphone for our readers, lavaliere for our Reverend and speakers).

I chose Sound Wave Productions based on their website and recomendation of the Westin Key West Resort where we had the event. Jimmy put me in touch with Kevin "Spyder" Wright. I couldn't have been happier with a DJ! Spyder was so much fun and kept us dancing all night long. He also handled music for the ceremony. My fiance and I were never very traditional, so we wanted tropical music played even for the wedding march. Spyder had a great calypso wedding march that fit perfectly. From the Beach Boys and Kenny Chesney to PCD and Kottonmouth Kings - he has it all! Even if he doesn't have it, he will download it on the spot for you. Per our guests, "This is the only wedding that everyone stayed and danced until they kicked us out!" It's all courtesy of Spyder! We can't thank him enough!

I was extremely impressed with the services of Sound Wave Productions. I had a wedding coordinator who recommended this company for my reception. I gave general information about what types of music I wanted during the different times of the night (i.e. tropical music for cocktail hour, softer music for dinner, etc.) as opoosed to giving a specific playlist. The DJ did an amazing job at mixing the music. Though I did not communicate with the company directly, I thought the DJ was very friendly and professional, and the cost very reasonable.
