We like to call ourselves the “all-inclusive” DJ's. This means that we’re versatile, adaptable and do more than show up and play music. Instead, we walk you through every reception detail, create a timeline of events, suggest helpful tips, and choose fun songs and creative ideas to make your wedding stand apart from the rest. We’ve got you covered from the moment you book to the last dance at the end of the night. We make it a point to learn about you, your overall vision, and what you expect from us.

We’ve never lost sight of our clients expectations and continually strive to be better than the year before. A large majority of our clients have heard of us through word-of-mouth, venue referrals and/or repeat business due to the fact we treat everyone’s event as if it were our own. Since every event contains further potential clients, we want to impress not only our client, but all of our client’s guests as well. From the beginning and into the future, our job is creating memories…one event at a time.

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Our DJ style is simple: No cheesy colored vests or over-talking DJ’s who love the sound of their own voice. Instead, we pride ourselves on offering a fresh and contemporary approach with a clean and polished image. Our emcee approach is effective, concise and straight to the point without lots of un-necessry chatter. When it comes to music, whether it’s spinning classic tunes for an older crowd, beat-mixing for the club fans, or anything in between, we can match our style to fit your needs.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
There is no limit. We'll do our best to make sure you hear all or most of the songs you requested with the timeframe of your event.
What is your usual attire?
Our usual attire is black formal wear. However, if the theme calls for something different we will gladly dress for the occasion. Rest assure we will not DJ your wedding in jeans and a polo.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Yes and no. If it's a song that's not for sale or available to the public we would need it provided to us prior to the event. Otherwise, we gladly purchase any pre-requested special songs for your event.
How many other DJs do you work with?
We don't send out DJ's and MC's separately. Why pay two people when you should only have to pay 1? Our DJ's are not only master of music but also act as the Master of Ceremonies handling all of your emcee needs.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
We don't have a minimum time. If you would like us to DJ for 1 hour we will gladly do so. We do have a minimum price which will be discussed before the event is booked.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely. In fact, this is something that we highly recommend. There's no better way to see if someone is the right DJ for you without an in-person consultation. A DJ's personality, attitude and appearance reflect your taste and style and should definitely be a part of your decision-making.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
Yes, in fact, we do quite a few Quinceanera's and Mitvah's. We have done other ethnic events as well, all with great success.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely. We have a set of online planning tools that will assist in your music selections. You can create a MUST play list, PLAY if POSSIBLE playlist and DO NOT PLAY list.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes. We bring everything we need for an event. The only thing we require is a power outlet to plug into.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Lighting and special equipment are considered a la carte options or add-ons. We customize our lighting packages to suit your personal taste and give you exactly what you are looking for.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
Normal set-up time is between 30-45 minutes. We do arrive about 2 hours prior just to to be sure we have adequate time for any unexpected changes. We don't require a table as we always bring our own, but if one is provided we would be more than happy to use it.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Space for a table and and area for our speaker tripods are all we need for a basic setup. However, this will all be discussed during a planning consultation to make sure everything is understood.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Absolutely not. This is your private celebration, not a place to conduct outside business.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Yes, we are not only the DJ, but also the Master of Ceremonies. As seasoned professionals, we clearly and confidently handle all microphone duties in a way that will surely impress your guests.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We have some guaranteed ways to get your guests on the dance floor without being cheezy or corny. We would be happy to share these suggestions and ideas with you during a planning consultation.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
We do not take breaks. We are DJ's, not a band.
What is your overtime rate?
$250 per hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Anything outside a 150-mile radius will require an additional travel fee. Fee amount will be determined based on location and time of day.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$300 deposit will officially reserve the date. The remaining balance will then be due two weeks prior to the event.

Wil from Soundwave was the DJ/emcee at our wedding, and he did an amazing job. Our meetings leading up to the wedding were productive. We could tell he was very considerate of making this experience a smooth one for us. He got a great idea of the vibe we were looking for, and was able to deliver on point. Everyone at our wedding had nothing but positive things to say about the music, especially the dance portion. Wil was able to appropriately gauge the energy on the dance floor, and the party did not stop until we had to exit the venue. Our first dance song was performed by a friend. Wil communicated with him and took time to make sure sound check was flawless. It all turned out great. He was on top of the timeline, making all announcements at the appropriate times. The entire night was seamless without any awkward gaps. We highly recommend Wil, the guy knows what he's doing.

Wow....where to begin? So... a few months into the planning phase of my niece's weddiing, I contacted Chris Berry for an initial quote for uplighting and DJ. I knew then that Soundwave Productions would be thee one...but I was swayed to contact others. I, very quickly, realized that the responsiveness and professionalism I received from Chris, was unlike any other. I couldn't send the deposit fast enough to ensure we were confirmed! Everyone knows that the DJ can make ore break a party. Well, Moises definitely made my niece's reception one to remember. I felt so comfortable handing over the timeline for the night's events and he was phenomenal! From set-up, to break down and in between too, Soundwave Productions was professional, attentive and knowledgeable! Will DEFINITELY call them again!

Chris is SO great!

My now-husband is super picky and a little bit of a snob when it comes to music, and Chris was able to hit the nail on the head.


We had a couple meetings, and Chris did everything he could do to make sure he was making us happy. A couple things changed last minute, and he handled it like the pro he is--My dad even went up to him the day of wanting to change our father-daughter dance--and Chris did it!

Chris first did the music for the ceremony--with our choices being a little unorthodox to say the least, Chris made sure the timing was perfect, and there wasn't a dry eye in the house.

We also asked Chris to do our lighting for the venue. He had that building looking spectacular. it was so lovely, and even did pin-spot lighting for our cake.

With our catering hitting a major snag, it severely cut into the dancing time. While we only ended up with two and a half hours of dancing (after originally planning four), Chris did such a great job at keeping everyone on the dance floor the entire time, no one had any clue they only danced for two hours! Everyone stayed on the floor the entire time, and even with the fire alarm going off, people didn't want to leave.

Great job, Chris-- you really helped save our day! We can't thank you enough.

Mark was my DJ, and Mark was phenomenal. Our original contact was through Chris Barry, and he spoke to me on the phone extensively about 4 months before the wedding (our engagement was only 6 months long). Chris listened to my weird non-traditional needs that I had for the wedding, and was very understanding and listened intently. Our wedding was a beachside wedding, with bbq for food, and an eclectic guest list. I have a large Catholic family, and my husband has a large Mormon family.

Mark met with me and my husband about 2 weeks before the wedding, to go over the music we had chosen, as well as get a feel for our personalities. Mark and I hit it off, as we represented the same undergrad, Go Ags! He made us feel very comfortable with the music we had chosen, and once the wedding began, he went off without a hitch. He paid attention to the age groups that were dancing at different times, he faded in and out of music appropriately, and all night long, and weeks following the wedding, guests were telling us how amazing our DJ was. He didn't play any music that was explicit, which is what I asked for during our meeting. The music got a little more funky, as the older guests started to leave, and we drinking dancers really got down. It was a great night, and the music was perfect, from each minute to the next. Totally recommend Soundwave and their DJs!

We used DJ Thomas for our wedding a few weeks ago. Everything worked out great, and Thomas really kept people on the dance floor the entire evening. The company was super easy to work with - very responsive, punctual, and detail-oriented. We felt very ushered through the process with Thomas' help, and our wedding reception went off great!

Chris was great to work with and really made our reception great!
We selected songs on his website and then he supplemented with his selections staying in the same genre. We received a lot of compliments on the music during dinner and during the dancing. We agreed on a timeline for the event and he kept us on track to fit in all the events we wanted during the evening. I highly recommend Chris for your next event.

Hands down a superb company to work with. Chris was everything we could have asked for in a wedding DJ/emcee. He is an impressive professional who takes his job of serving your entertainment needs seriously. Everything we wanted coordinated worked out beautifully. It was great being able to meet with him to go over our reception details beforehand and his website is great in building how you'd like the night to be run. He's an experienced DJ who provides you great advice in planning but doesn't pressure you into anything. At our wedding reception, he was flexible in meeting on the spot music requests from our friends while also mixing in a lot of his own great choices.

Chris is extremely personable and has a great attitude. His whole team at SoundWave Productions has my highest recommendation!

The dance floor was never empty during the whole night. Do not hesitate to do business with them. No need to shop around for DJ's. Soundwave Productions should be your only stop!

Wil was our DJ for our wedding on 7/26/14. He was so great at our wedding both as a DJ and an Emcee host. We would definitely recommend him for weddings and future events. He met with us two times before the wedding and was very attentive to the music selections that I had in mind. Also, his input on the wedding time line and music selections was very helpful.

He was very knowledgable, professional, and flexible. He was on top of the music selections and timing during the ceremony. Last minute we changed our reception time and DJ Wil was flexible and made the changes right away. He was a great emcee host keeping all of out guest informed and entertained in all the events at the reception. He was able to read the crowd and play music that kept the party going on.
