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.

We first heard Aaron perform at one of our good friends weddings. We had a blast and loved every song that he played. We knew we had to hire him for ours and he did not disappoint! My husband and I met with Aaron multiple times before the wedding. He wanted to get to know us as a couple and find out the music that we listen to. Music and dancing are everything to my husband. Aaron played every song that we requested and added his flare into it. I cannot rave enough about how much fun our wedding guests had dancing. They basically had to be pulled off the dance floor toward the end. We had a last minute rain scare and ended up using a tent for the cocktail hour. Aaron came to the rescue was able to set up additional speakers in the tent so there would be some type of music during that hour. Aaron also was able to make announcements for us during the wedding and commented on certain songs that we had requested for individual friends and family. He is very thorough and even provided us with a list of all of the songs played at our wedding afterwards. I would definitely recommend Aaron for any special occasion!

My bride and I could not have asked for a better DJ than Aaron. We knew after leaving our first meeting with him that he was our guy, and boy were we right. He tailors all the music to your preferences and goes above and beyond to ensure your reception runs smoothly. Not having been involved in wedding/event planning before my own wedding, I was surprised at how involved Aaron was through the entire evening. He essentially was our coordinator throughout the whole reception and made sure we stayed on track with our timeline, along with checking up with my bride and I to see if we needed anything. Seriously, without him I firmly believe our reception would not have been the awesome, dance-filled, energetic fiesta that we were hoping for. Thank you so much, Aaron and Uptown Sound!

Mason and the entire team at Uptown Sound were absolutely incredible, not only to work with but during our reception. They were constantly available through texts and emails throughout the entire process. We met Mason about 9 months before our wedding, I like to plan ahead, he was so professional and calming that my fiancé and I barely had any questions to ask Mason and neither one of us wanted to look anywhere else. We sent Aaron a note that we wanted to go ahead and book Mason and that we also wanted to book a Photo Booth. Aaron was very quick in sending over the proposal. The thing that we loved was that the the DJ wasn't an hourly rate but a flat rate for unlimited music throughout the reception, which is hard to find. We met with Mason about a month before the wedding and he walked us through the timeline and which songs we had to pick. He was so patient with us, because we were both stressed and not at all prepared for the meeting. We told Mason we liked all sorts of music and he did a great job of finding a balance of genres. Aaron is great at shortening the speciality songs which is great because I do not like being the center of attention, and the versions do not sound choppy at all. Aaron makes them sound great and no one could tell that they were altered. On the day of the reception, Mason and the gentleman who handled the photo booth were very professional. We actually had the power go out 3 times during the reception due to a storm and Mason went and found me first to make sure that I was ok and then just picked right back up when the power turned back on. No one left the dance floor until the very end, unless they were going to the photo booth :). Everyone raved about the gentleman at the photo booth as well and Aaron sent us the link to the photo booth pictures just a few days later. My husband and I missed the photo booth end time and he even turned the machine back on just to let us take a picture. I highly highly recommend Uptown Sound! Thank you!

Aaron was an amazing wedding DJ! We could not have asked for better! Aaron covered our ceremony and reception and both went perfectly. He met with us several times and really took the time to get to know us and the type of music we wanted at the event. He really made our wedding night extra special! I was able to relax and enjoy the night knowing that he had things covered. He kept the music going the whole night and kept people dancing with the great music! He went above and beyond his job and even checked to see if we needed anything throughout the night. I cannot thank him enough and he really cares making your day special. Our wedding would not have been as great without him.

Aaron from Uptown Sound is a total pro. He keeps everything moving along according to plan with his microphone and his music. If you are looking for a DJ that will take charge of the flow of the evening from beginning to end without ever making it about himself by getting corny or jokey - Aaron is your guy. He said what needed to be said no more, no less. And had a great sense for the music the room was looking for in the moment. At the end of the night people were just saying that they had fun in general without even knowing they were complementing Aaron - which is exactly what we wanted.

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!
