It's the experience.

Not just our experience. Your experience.

When you hire us, we treat you like we would our own friends and family. After all, you're trusting us to emcee and host one of the most important moments of your life, and we don't take that responsibility lightly.

It's more than simply putting together a playlist and showing up with the equipment. We take time to get to know you and learn all the important details you've been meticulously planning. When we arrive on your wedding day, we want you to feel like a trusted friend is hosting your party--not a stranger.

In addition to our experience as pro DJs, you're also getting outstanding customer service from someone who is easy to reach, quick to respond, and who truly cares about the success of your wedding.

Please visit the Weddings page of my website for a list of other things you get when hiring Uptown Sound, as well as all of the other services we offer. If you're interested in getting a customized quote, you can call us at 214.491.8283 or send an email to aaron@uptownsound.com.

All the best, and I look forward to working with you.

Mason McDrew was our DJ with Uptown Sound and our wedding was unforgettable!

We had another DJ in mind (family friends) who was already booked. They recommended Uptown Sound, and we met with Mason a few times before our event. One of the things we I liked most is that Mason really listened to what I had to say (and I’m sure I came across as fairly demanding)!

I knew he was the right guy when he started offering suggestions… such as changing the themes of the music throughout the night to move our event along in the direction we wanted! I’ve dealt with a lot of DJs before and no one had even suggested that!

Although we came pretty prepared, with a list (and youtube addresses) of every song we HAD to have, and which versions… Mason did an excellent job filling in the gaps! He knew how to cut down a long song, when to extend a song, and where it was okay to announce or talk over a part of a song! The party flowed smoothly, and that had a lot to do with Mason & Uptown Sound! As someone else said: “There were no awkward pauses, transitions to slow songs, or songs that were played for too long. The transitions between songs were seamless, and the mix between current and older music had guests of all age groups dancing”. AND dance we did! All night!

Afterwards is what made it truly special. We received an email a few days later asking if we were happy with his service. He gave us a copy of the CD of the music for the ceremony. We asked for the entire playlist of the reception (so we could make our own CD), and he offered the playlist. We are so happy and highly recommend Uptown Sound!

Mason was the DJ at our wedding & it could not have been more perfect. Not only did he do an awesome job with the music and feeding off the crowd but we had a little snafu with our wedding day coordinator and he took over and made everything flow perfectly. Our wedding was 2 weeks ago and people are still talking about how amazing our DJ was! Pricing was reasonable and our uplighting looked perfect, too! We wish we could do the whole thing over again :)

We threw several changes at Aaron during the wedding/ceremony (same venue), including changing the ceremony music from live to pre-recorded, cutting several songs, and rearranging events. He handled everything smoothly and really helped lower my stress level! I never felt like I was inconveniencing him or causing a problem by making a change. He checked with me when other people were making changes (like adding speeches).

During the planning process, he also gave some great suggestions that I wasn't even aware I needed to be aware of! For example, for the anniversary dance he had people join the dancing progressively instead of leaving, so at the end of the song everyone was on the floor. He also suggested having a private first dance while the guests were preparing for the sendoff, which was one of my favorite moments from the whole wedding.

Aaron provided an all-around exceptional level of service that went far beyond being the DJ. For example, for our buffet-style dinner, he walked around and dismissed tables (after asking what the order should be!) so there wasn't a huge line. He also stopped by our sweetheart table as we were eating to check on us and get drinks! We provided a few favorite songs and general genres we like, and as a DJ, he played a perfect blend of our songs/genres, guest requests, line dances, and current pop songs.

I almost wish I was getting married again so I could work with this company again!

If you are looking for someone who is a Master of Ceremonies - someone who is professional, courteous, and interested to meet your needs and wants - Mason with uptown sound is your DJ.

I was really worried about finding the right fit for our event. I have been to many weddings where the DJ's are overly involved - dancing with guests, making inappropriate comments, playing the music THEY like - instead of what the guests hear.

As soon as I met with Mason, I knew he was our guy. After our first appointment, I knew I didn't need to look anymore and cancelled all my appointments with the other vendors I had contacted. His only concern was formatting our wedding how we wanted it to be formatted. He offered suggestion when we asked for them, and gave us time to make up our minds about things we needed time to think about. He did the music for our ceremony and reception. Everything went off without a hitch, He was one of our first vendors there, set up and ready to go.

Other things we liked: Mason has a calming personality, and is very kind. He worked with a coordinator to make sure everything went smoothly. Uptown sound was extremely easy to work with, both Aaron and Mason were very responsive and easy to get a hold of whenever we needed them.

As a further compliment to them, they were recommended to me by my friend whose wedding I attended. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.

What a stunning job Uptown Sound did with the uplighting at our daughter's wedding. I hadn't even thought about lighting the columns, cake or certain tables. We called them at the last minute and they did a beautiful job. Very professional, flexible and a great value. I wish we had known about them earlier since they also have DJ capability. But I can only honestly recommend for Up Lighting.

We recently had Mason DJ and do the up-lighting at our wedding. We met with Mason a few times before the wedding to sort out the details and give him our song choices. He was calm and professional and really made us feel at ease. Aaron edited our songs down seamlessly. I think we had the greatest dance party of all time. Our guests stayed on the dance floor till the very last song.

Last minute we wanted to hire a videographer and Aaron worked with us to find someone two days before the wedding. He also helped us to design a custom package to fit our needs.

With only a month until our wedding, we were scrambling to find a videographer. Someone recommended Uptown Sound and showed us their own short wedding video they had just received from them. We loved the creativity and incredible quality shown by that video, and reached out to Aaron hoping that they would be available. Luckily they were, and we are so happy with the finished product! The videographer was so easy to work with. He was laid-back and comfortable in his role, which is so needed on a day as crazy as your wedding day. Our video captures our personalities and everything we wanted our wedding to be. We are so grateful to have such a quality video to eternalize our favorite day! Aaron went above and beyond to work with us and was always willing to accommodate any crazy request we had. I highly recommend using Uptown Sound for videography!
