It's the experience.

Not just my experience. Your experience.

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

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

In addition to my experience as a pro DJ, 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.

For a list of other things you get when hiring Uptown Sound, please visit the Weddings and Receptions pages of my website.

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

Aaron, Mason, and Trey were an integral part of our big day! Aaron was incredibly responsive and flexible with our timing.

Mason, our DJ, was professional, attentive, caring, and got the entire wedding party excited for the reception entrance! He was always prompt to our meetings and was very flexible with our special requests (i.e., tea ceremony music, asian music). His calming presence and taste for GREAT music had the guests on the dance floor all night long! We felt well taken care of on our wedding day. Mason handled every musical transition seamlessly and is everything we wanted in a DJ!

Trey, our videographer, was also professional and attentive. He captured so many details and fleeting moments without intruding on our time together. In addition, we were visiting family abroad and wanted to show our wedding video. The team had promised to deliver some unedited footage but Trey went above and beyond and completed our highlights video weeks ahead of schedule so we could share our special moments with family!

Together, Aaron, Mason, and Trey delivered the utmost professional and enjoyable service! We would recommend them to anyone! Thanks for everything!!!!!

Uptown Sound helped with my daughter's wedding on Friday, June 20th, 2014. Aaron is positively the best! Not only is he a nice and friendly man, he followed through on every single request, both with regard to music and announcements. He was much more than a DJ and took on the role of emcee, calling tables to the buffet, organizing games, etc. We always knew what was coming so that people could gather for special dances, the cake cutting, bouquet toss, etc. Many of our guests commented on the fantastic job Aaron did. We would hire him over and over again!

We loved our DJ, Keith!

He communicated very well and was easy to work with. On the day of he dressed professionally, his setup did not intrude on the dance floor or the ceremony, the volume was loud enough to dance to but you could still converse (it didn't feel like a club where you have to shout to be heard) and he worked well with the other vendors to manage the timeline so everything went smoothly.

He was very responsive to the kind of music we like but balanced it well with music that would keep people on the dance floor. He also read the room and played music our families liked. We also really appreciate that he did not play cheesy music, inappropriate music or weird music. He also touched base throughout the wedding and handled a few surprises very well.

He cost more than any of the other DJs we talked to but he's a great value and well worth the extra cost. We highly recommend using him for your wedding or event.

I originally thought that we would "do our own" DJing by using a playlist app and having a family member press play. I am so glad that we went with Uptown Sound! They more than paid for themselves through their impeccable service and were very reasonably priced. We first hired them for our ceremony, which was located in a hotel ballroom. The hotel quoted us a ridiculous price for uplighting and sound system (a microphone, speakers, the basics) and we still needed to provide someone to "press play" at the right times! We found Uptown Sound who provided the sound system, uplighting, and a DJ to run it all at a fraction of the hotel's quote. We then decided to add a DJ to the reception at another venue. Uptown Sound was very accommodating with this request. We worked with Keith who helped us make a schedule for the reception, provided guidance in choosing songs for every step of the evening (things I definitely would not have known about), and was the person who made sure everything got done (cake cutting, first dance) without being pushy about it. It took longer than expected for me to change into my "getaway" dress, and Keith kept the music going to avoid any awkwardness or people living before our grand exit. Keith worked with some very "interesting" (read: irritating) personalities of other vendors I had hired and ensured that everything was done in our best interest, rather than the vendors. I cannot speak highly enough of Keith. My husband and I have never been dancers, and both of us could not help but be on the dance floor the whole night! Keith was that good! All our guests were asking about him! I would recommend Uptown Sound to anyone!

Aaron was outstanding, he literally set the tone for how the evening went. Lacee and I couldn't have asked for anyone better to handle our wedding... from lighting to DJ and MC everything was perfect. Extremely professional and made things easy in an overwhelming time of our lives. He kept the night going and the flow on track with a nearly 400 person reception. The other reviews go into a lot of depth, but lets make it simple... if you're looking for a DJ/MC or need lighting, you're in the right place and in great hands.

I called Uptown Sound to help with our wedding. I am a very picky musically so I thought I was going to drive any DJ crazy. We got hooked up with Keith Glanz and I am so happy we did! He is the best! He doesn't just play amazing music, he does everything and knows how a wedding works. It was almost like I had two day-of-coordinators:). He even got food for me when he knew I was too busy to sit down and munch. So thoughtful and sweet! He is extremely punctual and organized and has a wonderful personality, a very genuine person. I highly recommend uptown sound and Keith in particular:) thanks guys!

I can't say enough about Aaron and Uptown Sound. I found him threw his awesome reviews online and I decided to splurge a little on the DJ so that I could use him and it was the best decision I could have made. From the first time we met, his professionalism, his charism, and his experience sold me. I never would have expected that the DJ would play such a huge role in the wedding, but Aaron definitely ran the show. He made the whole day/night so easy for me. I knew he had everything under control and I could relax (and party) and enjoy the night. I got so many compliments on the music and the whole night in general and I know it wouldn't have been the same without Aaron. He is the best. No matter what your budget is, work out some way to use Uptown Sound for your DJ if you want an unforgettable wedding.

First let me start off by saying that my husband and I live in California, but got married in Las Colinas, Texas. Planning a wedding from another state insn't the easiest thing to do, and you rely a lot on other brides reviews and good communication from the vendors. From the very first email, Aaron from Uptown Sound was extremely professional, curtious, and responded almost immediately. Throughout the year I planned the wedding, every time I emailed, Aaron always wrote me back right away and was very flexible for meeting with me when I came into town. Most of all, he helped us throughout every step of planning our reception timeline along with all of the significant songs we needed. Along with being our DJ, he also provided our up-lighting for the reception. It was extremely important to me that the room was covered in purple lighting and Aaron did a better job than I could have imagined! The room was beautiful and the entire vibe of the reception was kept going through the great music played. Our wedding was exactly what we wanted and we have Uptown Sound to thank for getting the party started and keeping it going all night. I highly recommend using Uptown Sound for any DJ or lighting services you may be looking for!

Aaron was a phenomenal wedding DJ, I have NEVER seen so many people dance at a wedding before. We had a very diverse group of guests from all over the world with very different tastes in music and he accommodated them all. People were dancing all night long! He also did a great job with up lighting in my venue, it made the whole place feel more dynamic. I liked Aaron so much we are using him for a corporate event next month!

Uptown Sound (Aaron) was awesome. I made the mistake of leaving the DJ picking to my husband, who left it to the last minute. Fortunately, Uptown Sound had availability! Aaron only had one month to prepare with us and gather as much information he could for the wedding.
Aaron was extremely professional and proactive in making sure that everything ran smoothly and even helped us plan out the reception.
He made wonderful recommendations and made sure that we weren't bothered on our wedding day. He even made a music medley for my father/daughter dance, which was fantastic!
I would highly recommend Uptown Sound for your wedding day!

Working with Aaron from Uptown Sound was one of the best decisions I could have made to ensure the flow of my reception was flawless. I never had to worry about when to cut the cake or throw the bouquet because Aaron had it under control. Not only was he a wonderful DJ and picked wonderful, fun songs, he also served as an MC to welcome Ryan and I in, invite my Dad to make a toast, and direct the crowds attention for things like first dance and cake cutting. I loved working with Aaron and I would encourage anyone to contact him!!

Aaron at Uptown Sound exceeded all of my wife and I's expectations! We wanted a DJ that would play music we enjoyed while simultaneously ensuring our guests danced and enjoyed the reception. In addition to keeping the party aspect going all night, we wanted a DJ that would be professional and work well with our wedding planner, photographers and other vendors. Aaron took care of all of the above and was sensational. We left our reception saying how happy we were with all of his services throughout the evening and how much fun everyone had dancing to great music. Aaron is fantastic and will provide piece of mind that your wedding reception is both a party for you and your guests and runs smoothly start to finish. And one more thing, we also highly recommend the photo booth as our guests had a blast taking pictures all night! Thanks, Aaron.

Keith was the absolute best DJ for my big day I could have ever asked for. He was professional, sincere and did the most amazing job possible. Music I requested, that I will confess is pretty hard to come by, was on the playlists and I'm sure he found songs my guests requested pretty quickly as well. The transition from ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, THEN dancing, all in one space must have been tricky, but Keith handled it like a pro. I have nothing but fantastic things to say about him and would recommend him to every bride in the DFW area!

Mason from Uptown Sound was the DJ for our wedding on 10/12/13 and we could not have been more pleased. From helping us create an itinerary to helping with music selection and keeping things running on schedule, this was exactly what we wanted. Mason was even nice enough to make sure we had what we needed during dinner (special treatment!). The lighting they provided us with was great too and exactly what was requested. The bottom line is that these are people you can trust with your special event. Top notch.

Aaron (lighting), Mason (DJ) and Trey (videography) were all part of our special day. They were superb!! Mason is an EXCELLENT DJ!! I was amazed with his mixing, timeline effectiveness and personality!! The crowd said more than once "who is this?" and "we love the playlist mix!". He is a super nice guy. I didn't have to worry about a thing. He sat down with us a month or so before the wedding and planned the evening with a timeline and music. That was a huge help for everyone from catering to photography! Aaron helped us with beautiful lighting in the garden and reception area (it really helped with the photos)!! And we threw things at him right at the end that he was able to handle without hesitation! Trey was an excellent videographer, he was always around! Which is a GREAT thing because that night went by really FAST! I can't wait to see what he captured!! Thank you Uptown Sound! I will use you again and recommend you to anyone!!

He did a great job of making sure he understood exactly what we wanted for the whole night from the dress code of the wedding to the music, lighting and videography.

He was extremely professional throughout the entire planning process and the day of the wedding and always put our needs first.

I strongly recommend using Uptown Sound for your wedding!

Mason was my wedding reception DJ and I couldn't have asked for more! He did a fabulous job! He was flexible and professional and he did an excellent job of reading the crowd. I had a pretty diverse array of music, but after talking to Mason I felt confident that the reception would be a blast and I was right. The night was seamless from lounge to salsa to country to pop, everyone could not stop telling me how much fun they had! Thank you Mason for going above and beyond and making it the evening of a lifetime!

We are so glad we chose Uptown Sound for our Wedding Reception! Mason was our DJ and he did a wonderful job. He was so easy to work with! We met a few times before the wedding and he was always so welcoming and helpful. We were very indecisive with the music we wanted to play and Mason was flexible and happy to make any changes throughout the planning. He even went above and beyond and found songs my parents had requested that I am sure weren’t in their system! Mason was genuinely eager to help make sure our day was special and stress free. Some of our favorite pictures are the ones of everyone on the dance floor. Our guests had a great time! Thanks Mason!!

Aaron was awesome and very professional. He listened to what my husband and I wanted for our wedding and did everything he said he would. It was so easy to work with him, so much so that he felt like one of our closest friends that has known us forever. He understood what we were trying to say and what we were looking for when words seemed to escape our minds. I knew I could trust him to play the songs we wanted and to not play the songs we did not want. We got soooo many compliments after our wedding about how awesome our DJ was and he played so many great songs everyone just loved the music. If you want a DJ that is going to make your reception a PARTY but you are still in charge he is your guy...he does not take over your reception like some DJ's do. In my eyes he is what I think every wedding reception needs to get people out there dancing and moving and everything flowing perfectly. Uptown Sound gave me my perfect reception!!! So happy :)

Aaron went above and beyond for our wedding. We had a flawless and fantastic experience working with him from the moment I sent an inquiry, to the last song that was played at our wedding – and even working with Aaron on events after our wedding. I would hands down recommend him for any lighting and/or sound needs for ANY type of an event.
He met us at our venue to show us the up-lights he uses. They are LED, so they don't get hot, and he can create virtually any color. After meeting at the venue, we received a excellent quote and booked.
Closer to the wedding, Aaron sent us a sample timeline and song selection for the ceremony and reception. It wasn't until I got the timeline and playlist samples that I realized just how much thought had to go in to every minute of our wedding. My husband and I were a little overwhelmed, and Aaron requested we meet up or Skype to work out the details. We ended up Skype-ing the week before our wedding at 8 o’clock at night for about an hour and a half. Aaron helped us put together every minute of our ceremony and reception. It was so helpful, and relieved a lot of stress.
Aaron also cut our first dance and father-daughter dance songs. It was definitely nice not having to be dancing in front of everyone for three and a half to four minutes for an entire song (this was at no charge).
The amount of people Aaron got on the dance floor for our ENTIRE reception was amazing. Family and friends I never imagined I would see boogieing on the dance floor were having the time of their lives! It was great. It also made for some incredible pictures.
The lighting at both the ceremony and reception was beautiful. That alongside the flowers made for a breathtaking room for each part of the wedding. It was an amazing transformation. The pin spots on the cake were incredible too!
All-in-all, you won’t find a better lighting and sound vendor in Dallas than Aaron. Book him…NOW!

Aaron with Uptown Sound is amazing! We booked him for DJ and lighting services. Our reception was awesome! I'm sure every bride says that, but ours really was! Me and my husband are picky about music and so we gave Aaron a long list of songs we wanted played. Technically, only 10 can be selected as 'must play' and 10 can be selected as 'try to play'. Honestly - I think he played every single song on our request list at the actual reception. I was on the dance floor most of the night!

Aaron doesn't just play the music, he designs the atmosphere of the reception.

We booked the lights as an add-on the DJ package and found that his prices for lighting were way lower than any other lighting service we looked at. Also, we had a mixed crowd of friends and family spanning a few generations. Aaron did a good job of getting everyone out on the dance floor while still keeping all the music in line with our tastes.

All in all, Aaron is a true professional and I felt it was money very, very well spent. Our night was so special and Aaron had a lot to do with that. Thank you Aaron!

Aaron Kannowski is THE best DJ a bride could ask for! His "unlimited planning" guarantee gave me peace of mind, and I knew that Aaron would deliver on EVERYTHING I asked for. 5 stars seems too low for Aaron - I'd give him 10 stars if I could. I had a lot of unique requests, and Aaron was incredibly flexible - often delivering song edits on the same day I asked for them. He has an amazing ability to read the crowd and find creative ways to get people back on the dance floor if there's a lull. My guests danced ALL night long, and I received dozens of compliments about how fantastic Aaron was. He kept the party moving on time, perfectly paced, and played fun songs for guests of all ages. He also served as the MC for the night, introducing key family members and announcing major moments. He ALSO did all of the uplighting for my wedding - which turned out beautiful, the perfect shade of blush pink. He really can do it ALL! HIGHLY recommend Aaron for any bride who wants to PARTY on her wedding night and show her guests the time of their lives.

I went to Aaron at Uptown sound because he was the DJ at a close friends wedding. He's awesome!! He is the best bled of dj and mc and everything a wedding dj should be. He has a commitment to customizing your wedding to your personality, and truly douses on making his clients happy. Even my father, who hates weddings with djs, commented afterward that Aaron was not only great--but helped make the night!

Aaron was the first vendor I hired for my wedding, over a year in advance so that I would be sure to get him. He was unbelievably helpful throughout the planning process, offering advice and even sending me sample timelines when I was struggling with that. He was more than just a DJ, he really MC'ed the whole evening and made our guests feel so welcome. He had everyone on the dance floor all night. I've heard countless compliments about how great the music was. I really loved that he brought some uplights that matched our decor and set them up around the dance floor. Its one of those services that I didn't expect at all, but that adds so much value to what you get with him. He was great at keeping track of the timeline and making sure my fiance and I were ready before he announced the cake cutting, etc.

Aaron is a sweetheart and plays great music. Don't be fooled, we had a majority Afr. Am. wedding party and guests, and Aaron did an amazing job! He played great music, edited, you don't need curse words to have a good time. Even the older people enjoyed him and weren't offended by any of the music. He played some older music too, but was up most of the new hip hop, rap, r&b songs. His personality is so laid back, sweet, and he seems so honest. But the night of the wedding, he knew how to turn it on and get everyone hype! He also set us up with our videographer, who made me feel like I was being filmed for a movie (lol) I love Aaron!
Pros: Attitude, professionalism, great prices.

Cons: There were just a few current hip hop songs I wish he was more up on. But hey, he's a good Christian guy, and that probably isn't the genre he listens to every day.

Working with Aaron was a breath of fresh air during our wedding planning process! My husband was responsible for searching for the DJ for our reception, and he pre-interviewed a few vendors before settling on meeting with Uptown Sound in person. Our first meeting with Aaron was a great success! He made us feel very comfortable and we both felt like we had known him for years - not to mention he brought mimosas to celebrate our engagement! Aaron was very easy to work with, and I really felt like he cared about me and what I wanted for our wedding instead of pushing a sale on us. A few weeks before our wedding, my parents surprised me and my husband by purchasing a 10-piece band to play at our reception. We were DEVASTATED to tell Aaron about it because we really felt we had a connection with him. It ended up working out, and we still had Aaron come and play at our reception and he did a fabulous job! He was very professional and friendly with our guests. Both my husband and I wish we could have another big event and hire a DJ, because we would definitely pick Uptown Sound!

Uptown Sound was a huge part of why our wedding was amazing and memorable. Before the wedding, Aaron met with us and went through every detail of the timeline and music for the wedding from start to finish. He brought up so many details that I never would have thought about and I'm so glad he did! One thing Aaron suggested was doing a last dance by ourselves while everyone else waited for our exit. I never would have though it doing that, but we loved it. Aaron was a perfect emcee for the night and helped keep everything going all night. We also had lighting and videography. The lighting transformed the room and made it look so elegant and put together. Trey did an amazing job with the video, I'm so glad we decided to add that service. We love our finished video and having all the raw footage. I highly recommend Aaron and all of Uptown Sound!

Uptown Sound did a fantastic job at our daughter's wedding. Aaron provided music for the outdoor ceremony, and beautiful lighting and great music for the reception. He helped plan out the timeline so that the reception flowed just perfectly, and customized the music to just what the bride and groom wanted. He was able to edit down certain songs for special dances if we wanted, and he had every single piece of music in the world! He is a great MC - not annoying like some DJ's - very professional and he knew just when to slow things down and just when to get everyone moving on the dance floor!

It's easy to tell that this is a high quality, professional DJ/lighting/sound/video company - no details were left undone, and we could not have been more pleased!

My fiancé and I met with several DJ services before finding Uptown Sound. We were very nervous because we really like to party and wanted our wedding to have that sort of "packed dance floor" atmosphere.

We met with Keith and were so pleased and excited. He asked us lots of questions about ourselves rather than telling us about himself. He seemed like he would really mold the style to us. We got to play a huge part in the creation of our song list.

He had a very soothing soft voice and didn't sound cheesy over the microphone at all. He spoke a limited amount per our request and was so professional. He kept me updated throughout the night as to the timeline and gave us a heads up for upcoming items like cake cutting and garter toss.

Keith had a great feel for the crowd and was able to pick music that we loved that wasn't on our list. He didn't allow guests to request songs (per our request) but was very friendly to them when asked. Keith was the BEST part of our wedding and I couldn't recommend Uptown Sound more!!!!

Stop looking for your DJ. This is it!!!!

Keith was amazing! We were very lucky to find Keith after contacting a few DJ’s in the area. After our first meeting with Keith, we both left feeling confident in signing a contract with him. During our meeting, he was very professional and asked us questions to determine exactly what we were wanting. Every bride knows that it is hard to keep up with everything that is going on with wedding planning, but Keith made it so easy for me and told me exactly what he needed and when he needed it by. Not only did Keith do an amazing job with the music, but he did such a great job coordinating and keeping the night on track as well. We had a scare with the quartet showing up later than expected, but Keith was there to speak to me and discuss other options. We received many compliments from our guest and were very pleased with his services. Thank you Keith for helping make our wedding day so special!

Honestly, the best choice I made in the whole wedding planning process (other than the groom!). Aaron is phenomenal and did a great job working with us and keeping the energy up all night. I thought the party would lull once it got late, but everyone was still dancing at midnight! I was sad to have to wrap up the party!

Uptown Sound is everything BUT your normal DJ.

Aaron was the first vendor I met with when I began planning my wedding and it was truly instant for both my (now) husband & I that he was OUR guy. We were concerned...really concerned...about a DJ. We both walked into the planning process thinking that a band was an absolute must for us. We were wrong. Aaron changed our perception of 'DJ' though I prefer to call him a Music-Guru over DJ.

During our plannig process, Aaron was always involved. He was never more than a call or email away and I even asked him non-music related questions knowing he has seen more weddings than most. He was always there for us.

Aaron ran our sound for the pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, & dancing. We had a ton of compliments on the tunes he played and I've had more than one person tell me they've never been to a wedding where so many people were on the dance floor so much!!! Aaron really rocked it out for us!!!

Finally, the best thing I can share about Aaron with Uptown Sound is that he brings more to your event than music. He is a master of ceremonies if needed, the party-mistro, and will truly go above & beyond to make sure his clients have a wonderful event. I cannot say enough positive things about Aaron. Booking him is a MUST.

PS - We booked our videographer thru Uptown Sound as well. Aaron also provided our lighting. ALL FABULOUS!

Our first experience with Aaron was at a friend’s wedding. My husband and I were not even engaged at this time, but we were so impressed with his work that we knew we wanted him to DJ our wedding! Aaron is organized, detail oriented, quick to respond, and a joy to work with. We knew from the minute we met with Aaron we were working with a true professional in the wedding industry. He even worked with our day-of and reception coordinators to help us figure out the perfect timeline of events for our wedding reception, so we could get to the “party” as quickly as possible. Thanks to Aaron’s suggestions, the sequence of events throughout the night flowed together flawlessly and made our reception one of a kind. Also, his lighting packages are the best value in Dallas and he made our reception venue even more beautiful! P.S. If you think your reception venue does not need additional lighting you are wrong! Our guests had an absolute blast thanks to Aaron’s awesome music choices. He knows exactly what to play to get the party started and keep it going all night. Our guests still comment about “the best night ever!” It truly was the best night ever thanks to Uptown Sound. -Brian and Chelsea

Aaron was great. We were running a little behind for the reception as our ceremony ran over and there was bad traffic from the ceremony venue to the reception venue but he kept us on track! We were able to fit in all the things that we wanted and then some and still were able to keep our reception short and sweet! Aaron was a must if you need a great master of ceremonies to keep things rollin'! He played all the right music and we had a BLAST with our friends and family out on the dance floor!

Aaron was probably our favorite vendor... not only was he easy to work and communicate with, he was fair, kind, and professional above and beyond. We really liked this guy! Beside these qualities, he made our day extra special by editing special mixes, recording the whole night for later listening, and doing the lighting! He really 'felt' the crowd and delivered on great music all night long!! You can bet on Aaron to deliver exactly what you want for your very special day --- PICK THIS GUY!! You will not be disappointed. :)

Aaron did an awesome job DJing our wedding. He is extremely professional, not your prom or homecoming type DJ. Aaron sits down with you several times in the planning to get to know you, go over all your song requests and plan out the logistics of the night. I could never be as patient as he is, my bride and I had a serious Momzilla and Aaron was ever so patient making sure her roars (demands) were met and exceeded. His equipment is up to date and has a sleek sound system. Aaron was able to help us with all our up lighting and pin spots for a really reasonable cost! When shopping for a dj find out what dj will show up, a lot of companies sub-contract out their dj so you won't know who your dj is until after you paid. You can't go wrong with Aaron at uptown sound!

P.S. make sure to listen and/or ask for his opinion. He has some great suggestions to your guests dancing!

I don't typically like DJ's but we adored Aaron! Terrific customer service from beginning to end. The first time we met with him I knew he was the DJ for us. Aaron really worked with us to understand our vision for the wedding and what we wanted (and didn't want!). Extremely professional and kept the dance floor packed all night. A cool plus that he offers is custom edits of the songs for first dance, father-daughter, etc – so they don’t drag on forever. Aaron is a true professional that thinks of everything!

Hello Ladies, My name is Jim Hazard and I am saying "hello ladies" as I know only the brides are taking the time to read these. However, I'm taking the time to write this because DJ Aaron (that's what I named him) exceeded expectations and more importantly REDUCED my wife's stress. He was labeled "Wedding Insurance" by a previous commenter when we were looking for a DJ, and that label is pure fact. Let's list some reasons why he is the best choice and why I'm spending my time writing this:
1) I received emails from many people explicitly stating "amazing DJ"...even from other vendors at the wedding!
2) He made my wife relaxed before, after and during the wedding
3) He answered all of her calls or emails within hours, not days
4) He recommend we strike songs we requested from our reception list as his experience showed they clear the dance floor. That took balls
5) His organization, professionalism and attention to detail was top notch. This also helped ease my wife’s stress in the planning
6) He did much more than spin, he did countless little things
6a) Example of the little things that made him amazing...Before we walked out, he asked if we had to go to the bathroom. Clutch!
7) Best example of how he is "Wedding Insurance" and the single strongest reason I took all this time to write this...As we were about to make our exit, he stopped us and said, "When you're in the middle of the sparklers, stop and hold a pose. This will make a perfect picture and an unforgettable memory". OUR DJ DID THAT!!!

Interview him and you'll instantly be impressed. I could not recommend DJ Aaron more. Oh, he did play great music too in case I forgot to mention that

My husband and I could not be more pleased with the services Aaron provided for our wedding! He was, by far, the easiest one of our vendors to get a hold of which was a big relief during the busy wedding planning process. Aaron is super personable and friendly and we knew after our first meeting with him that we had made a good choice. He listened to everything we had to say and genuinely seemed interested in getting to know us as a couple. The night of the wedding went off without a hitch, all thanks to his direction and song choices. He truly made the night flow seamlessly. The dance floor was packed all night which is exactly what we wanted. We are so thrilled that Aaron was our DJ and would recommend him to others in a heartbeat. Friendly, professional, experienced, and fun - not much more you can ask for!

Selecting Aaron from Uptown Sound was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We were really impressed with Aaron from the beginning. He was one of the few DJs that actually took notes during our initial interview. He contacted our wedding venue and set up everything he would need for our wedding. We didn’t have a wedding planner so it was wonderful to have Aaron and his many years of experience. During the reception he was professional and everything flowed smoothly. The selection of music was exactly the way we wanted it. I was also surprised he was able to find my salsa and merengue music! To any bride or groom looking for a DJ, just take the time to meet Aaron and you won’t be disappointed.

Aaron with Uptown Sound did an awesome job as our DJ. He provided the uplighting, music for our cocktail hour in the courtyard, and in the ceremony and reception. He also hooked us up with Trey who did our videography. All of it was awesome. They were professional, personable, and definitely our most confident purchase for the wedding. On the day of, by the time I got there Aaron was already ready to go. I was in a rush and he immediately asked what he could do to help! Which meant 5 minutes later he was hanging our initials on the chapel doors haha. All our meetings and emails prior to the day were very helpful and he provided extra tips and info to help the music picking and reception planning super easy. Aaron was never hard to get ahold of. The wedding was amazing and he did a good job feeling out the crowd and keeping everyone on the dance floor. We got exactly what we asked for and more. I couldn't be happier with the service we got!

Like we did, you're probably scouring the internet right now in an effort to figure out your caterer, your venue, your florist, your baker....and your DJ. Guess what, you've found your DJ! Really can't say enough about Aaron. The guy's a consummate professional. I have some strong opinions and expectations around music. That's why I appreciated that Aaron was able to take my unique preferences and based off of a couple of examples, develop a complete playlist. His recommendations were spot on and his timing impeccable. But there are probably a lot of DJ's that can get you good music. I mean that's generally what a DJ does. What makes Aaron different is his level of engagement both leading up to and the day of your wedding. We had a TON of great feedback from our guests and a lot of high praise directed at Aaron. They told us that, in addition to playing really great music and keeping the thing on track, he helped them find their seat, answered their questions or was just generally helpful to them in whatever facet they needed help. If you want a DJ that plays music, hit up the yellowpages (.com?), but if you want someone to MC, act as your “day of” consultant, AND play kickass music, do yourself a favor and give Aaron a call. I make sure that good work goes noticed and he delivered!

My wife and I spent many hours online researching various DJs in the Dallas area. Since we were planning our wedding from out of town, we wanted to make sure we found the perfect DJ for our wedding. We were very fortunate to have found Aaron. From the first face to face meeting with Aaron, my wife and I both knew that he was dependable and very detail oriented. Aaron would always promptly answer any questions we had via email, text, or on the phone. He also jotted down many notes from the initial meeting and so we were always on the same page when we needed to talk. On the day of the wedding, everything went smoothly. Aaron was instrumental in helping us set up slide shows for the father-daughter and mother-son dance. He also helped keep the flow of the evening just right. The musical selections were always great and once people got on the dance floor, they stayed on the dance floor. I received many compliments from our guests regarding Aaron. He definitely made our special day all the more special. I highly recommend Aaron as the DJ for your wedding. We will definitely recommend him to all of our friends!

Well, really the dream I had for my wedding was that I danced the whole reception. And wow, I did. The music was so incredible I had guests emailing me the next day for the playlist Aaron used. I have priceless memories of the dancing that happened at the reception. Before the wedding Aaron replied to every email and phone call promptly, as well as calling me to remind me of decisions and just making sure that I didn't need anything. Aaron also helped us out with lighting. I found him patient, receptive to our ideas, not-cheesy (a must for us) and organized. Oh, and also he played rockin' music. I never stopped dancing. Thank you, Aaron! We could not have been happier with our music!

I couldn't have imagined a better DJ and Emcee for our wedding. Aaron, from day one, really took the time to get to know each of us and what feel we really wanted for our wedding. Since we are both really in to music, this vendor had a tough job to make sure the entertainment fit our personalities. He sat down with us and let me list off probably over a 100 options of songs he could play that WE loved, not just typical wedding music. Aaron was even so great as to be able to help us out last minute and come run the music and slideshow at our rehearsal dinner the night before! Since the wedding, Aaron has truly become a great friend and I will continue to recommend him to anyone I know getting married! I just can't say enough about him!

Since the wedding, Aaron has truly become a great friend and I will continue to recommend him to anyone I know getting married! I just can't say enough about him! Read less

Hello. My name is Patti and we used Aaron with Uptown Sound at our wedding on Dec the 30th. Hands down, Aaron was the best part of our wedding (aside from marrying my fiance that is!) lol. With Aaron you not only get great music that you can tailor to your style and the genre of your guests, but you also get an MC, a true master of ceremonies, per say. Aaron is a true professional in every way! From the moment I met Aaron, I knew he had to be a part of our special day! I knew that there was no question he would be a MUCH better choice than a band that would not be nearly as flexible or as creative and fun as Aaron turned out to be! Aaron is the epitomy of dependable, he is charming, so sincere, so conscientious, and so darn nice!!! When my family left the wedding that night, they kept hugging Aaron saying that when their daughters get married, they want to fly Aaron to California to do their weddings as well. He was the HIT of the wedding and we all just wanted to adopt him into our family. He was sooooo much fun!!!! When my fiancé and I first met with Aaron, he had this notebook and asked us a lot of questions and would take lots and lots of notes. At the time we had no idea what he was going to do with all of this information. It wasn’t until the reception that I realized just how much time, thought and energy Aaron put into what we shared with him. He put sooo much creativity and thought into what we shared with him and we were absolutely floored when we saw what he did. When Aaron did our introduction as husband and wife for the first time., we were laughing and crying at the same time. Aaron actually put together the most amazing “love story” presentation that he shared with the crowd. It included video of our favorite comedian that we watched on our first date, it included photos of when we first started dating, and quite honestly, it was one of the most special parts of my entire wedding. I had no idea when I hired Aaron just how creative he was and just how personal and fun he would make our entire reception. He also included all the uplighting in his package and completely transformed our venue into kind of a “lounge, club” type of atmosphere, which was exactly what I was looking for. He spent so much time prior helping us to develop a play list and was so instrumental in getting the entire wedding out on the dance floor. Aaron was also soo responsive and so unbelievably willing to help me with every aspect of the wedding and he was so responsive to every email, txt msg and phone call I made prior to the big day. He really stepped up and went overboard with everything including staying at the reception well into the night, (and I’m sure much later than he ever expected), all with a huge smile on his face! Aaron also worked closely with the videographer, my wedding planner and the entire team of vendors. There wasn't anything he wasn't willing to do or help me with, including recording all of our vows and the ceremony in unison with the vidoe team. There are not enoiugh great things I can say about Aaron. Everybody raved about the our entertainment and he was the talk of the weekend afterwards! I wouldn’t even consider using a band after the experience I had with Aaron and would highly recommend him to every bride that wants to have a wedding that she and her guests will remember forever!! I think after just one meeting with Aaron you will see what I mean. Feel free to email me if you would like to discuss more. (patti.ahern@yahoo.com). Uptown Sound is the best decision we made!

My husband and I could not feel more blessed that we found Aaron to DJ our wedding. At the beginning of the planning process, for budget purposes, we were resolved to creating a playlist for an iPod and pressing play when the time came for dancing. I don't remember why we decided we should at least ask around about DJs, but I'm so glad we did because hiring Aaron was probably the most important, valuable, and evening-defining decisions we made. Not only did he put together custom tailored playlists for cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing, but he served as Master of Ceremonies for the whole event, making sure things flowed smoothly as they were supposed to. He and I worked out a tentative schedule of events for the reception before the big day so that at the event he could help make sure we stayed on schedule -- not only gently reminding me and my groom that it was time to cut the cake (as one of many examples), but also making sure my photographer and caterer (and whoever else was needed) were on deck to capture the moment and make sure it happened as it was supposed to. He went absolutely above and beyond! The up-lighting was beautiful and added to the already stunning ambiance he had set with music selection, and I don't think there was a single song for which our dance floor wasn't bumpin' during the dance party. I genuinely don't think our reception would have been as fun as it was if Aaron hadn't been there to help coordinate and set the tone. We are so grateful! Passing on his info to all my best friends, and hoping you (the reader of this review) will take my word for it and hire him to make your event as special as you've always dreamed it would be.

My mother-in-law stumbled across Aaron with Uptown Sound as we were leaving a bridal open house with various vendors selling various services. My fiancé and I had actually already left for the afternoon, but my mother-in-law had the go to the restroom. After she returned, her exacts words were, “Oh my gosh, I have found you the most perfect DJ for your wedding!!! He is the most genuine, sweet guy, and I know you will love him!” Let me just say that she had all this to say after only talking to Aaron for about 15-30 minutes. Long story short, she was definitely right. After the first time we met Aaron, we knew he was the person we wanted to hire for our perfect wedding reception. Aaron worked with us so well, ensuring that all of our requests were met, and that we would have our perfect wedding day. He was great at accommodating a few special requests we asked for, and was genuinely interested in my fiancé and I as a couple, and not just another client who is forking over money. He made us feel so important, and is extremely genuine and honest in everything he does. We had the BEST wedding we could have ever imagined, and it wouldn’t have been nearly as good without Aaron there to get the party started. We literally had almost every person on the dance floor, even people in my family who I have NEVER seen dance, even at other weddings. Hands down, hiring Aaron was the best decision I have ever made in regards to my wedding! You will NOT regret hiring him, I promise!

Bride’s, let me start this review by saying that choosing Aaron Kannowski of Uptown Sound as my wedding DJ was the equivalent to purchasing a “best wedding reception ever ” insurance policy for my big day. I genuinely believe with all my heart that selecting your wedding DJ is the single most important “Big Day” decision you will make besides the guy next you at the alter – no seriously. And it wasn’t until I first met with Aaron before I realized how lucky I was to have stumbled across him. If there is any advice I could pass on to a future a bride, it would be to NOT let yourself underestimate the importance of your DJ selection. What you must realize about your wedding DJ is they are the Director of the evening, the crowd pleaser, the reception timeline creator, etc. Aaron was so much more for me then the guy pressing play for each of my song selections. He really should advertise himself as the Ringmaster of your Dream Day circus. If you have already begun the process of wedding day vendor selections, then you probably have come to the realization that a lot of these vendors are almost callous to the importance of your special day. Understandable, seeing as wedding vendors are dealing with wedding-mania 24-7, 365. However, Aaron never once made me feel like this wasn’t the most important wedding reception of his career. He basically held my hand through the entire process. He literally spent hours with me, tailoring my wedding day in order to make certain that every last little detail was perfectly planned for success. No need to overpay for a wedding planner if you book Aaron for your wedding. Oh yeah, and did I mention he has the most affordable and phenomenal lighting packages as well… ladies, this guy is a 3-for-1 steal of a deal! The bonuses just never end. My only complaint is that my wedding was so incredibly fun and amazing that I’m suffering from a severe case of wedding night withdrawal syndrome. I’m telling you, my wedding could have been an advertisement for “Dance-Dance-Revolution.” We probably wouldn’t have even needed chairs for our wedding reception seeing as everyone spent the evening partying on the dance floor. Aaron truly is responsible for orchestrating the best night of my life and I really hope that if you are reading this review right now, it’s enough to convince you that he is a necessity for making your wedding everything you imagine it to be. Aaron Kannowski is hands down, my favorite person on the wedding vendor planet!

Aaron did a GREAT job at my wedding reception! I cannot thank him enough! A week before my wedding, we moved the reception location due to a need for more room. In hindsight, it wasn't a huge deal, but it had me a little freaked out. The new location was not quite like the original location and not exactly what I had in mind. Aaron saved the day by adding great lighting to the venue, giving it more of a 'wedding' feel. He played all of the songs my husband and I had requested and did a great job of editing down the "first dances" songs to a couple of minutes or less. He was excellent in terms of responding to emails/texts/phone calls. He is very flexible and will meet you where ever when ever you need. If you need some help, he offer suggestions without sounding pushy. If you know exactly what you want, he'll do what exactly what you ask. Many of the guests commented on how great the DJ was at the reception. I would gladly recommend him to anyone!

Aaron was amazing. We had two wedding receptions on July 23,2011. One was at the church and more traditional the other was a fun we did it party! Aaron cued our videos of slideshows and ceremony perfectly and added a church approved soundtrack. Before the the 23rd he met with me several times and promptly answered text messages usually within 10 minutes and emails within hours. He also gave me ideas of how I might do certain things to make everything run smoothly. For my night party I had my fathers band play as well as Aaron since the band only covers 70's rock. My dad told me he enjoyed working with Aaron as he was just easy to work with. Aaron even made extra cut versions of my traditional dance songs so that I had options of what may be easiest to dance to. I highly recommend Aaron. He got everyone on the dance floor with kickin' tunes! Everyone at my parties was impressed and I can not thank him enough. He made me feel like I was the most important person he was working for everytime he answered a question or made a suggestion. He genuinely cares about making your event special. If you are looking for that old fashioned customer service that was above and beyond expectations look no further than Aaron.

Aaron was absolutely, unbelievably, incredibly awesome! He listened to our thoughts and ideas, and put together and incredible lighting and sound package to fit our needs. We got everything we needed, and he worked with our budget more than any other vendor I've worked with. He made us feel like he wanted to make our wedding the best, and in no way did we think he was doing it for the money. Sound and lighting quality was top notch, and he went way beyond what we paid him to do. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him, and HIGHLY recommend him to anybody. Aaron truly cares about your wedding or special event, and will give it his all no matter the size of the event. Thanks again Aaron!

Everything looked amazing and sounded great! I look forward to being able to use him at more events in the future, because I know that once he is hired that is one thing I no longer have to think or worry about!

Working with Aaron at Uptown Sound was one of the best parts of my wedding. He helped make my wedding what I dreamed it would be; a big party. I wanted all of my guests to have a blast, and they did!
While planning for our big day, Aaron was always very quick to respond. We always got a reply within the same day which is something that was very reassuring. I felt confident and excited to have Uptown Sound at our wedding.
Aaron was more than willing to help me find the perfect songs as well as the perfect timeline for the event. We searched for a first dance song for months, and I vented my frustration to Aaron. He listened to what I was looking for as well as what my fiance was looking for, and came up with an idea that we both loved immediately!
During our reception, a few things happened unexpectedly that interrupted our 'time line.' Aaron was extremely professional, pulled my husband and myself aside and presented us with his plan B. Everything ended up working out perfectly.
The professionalism and flexibility that he demonstrated far exceeded our expectations.

I cannot say enough how pleased we were to have Uptown Sound help make our wedding the perfect party we wanted it to be. We were actually sad after the wedding planning was over and we realized we were not going to be working with him any longer. (So we decided we need to plan another party!)
If you are looking for a DJ that will help make your dream wedding come true...you found him, call him right now! =)

During our reception, a few things happened unexpectedly that interrupted our 'time line.' Aaron was extremely professional, pulled my husband and myself aside and presented us with his plan B. Everything ended up working out perfectly.
The professionalism and flexibility that he demonstrated far exceeded our expectations.

I cannot say enough how pleased we were to have Uptown Sound help make our wedding the perfect party we wanted it to be. We were actually sad after the wedding planning was over and we realized we were not going to be working with him any longer. (So we decided we need to plan another party!)

Uptown Sound (Aaron) truly was one of our favorite vendors! My husband and I planned our whole wedding ourselves ,and without Aaron's help, I am sure our reception would not have run as smoothly as it did. Aaron is very knowledgable and experienced in wedding djing, and he helped us coordinate the whole evening's events, announcements, and transitions. He is very professional, and I got a lot of compliments and inquiries about my dj during and after our wedding. Not to mention, all the guests had a great time dancing , after dinner, the dance floor was filled the entire night! During our many months of planning, Aaron was always flexible with his schedule and even though I was an out of time bride, I appreciated that I was always able to meet with him and discuss ideas about the reception when I was in Dallas. If I had any questions or concerns, I was always able to call him and rely on him to have some ideas. He also did lighting for our wedding, and it turned out just the way that we imagined! We had an awesome experience with uptown sound and highly recommend this vendor!

Aaron did an unbelievably wonderful job deejaying our wedding last March. He made our reception flow smoothly and gave it a personality all its own. He was extremely accommodating at such short notice after I was able to convince my husband to hire a deejay, instead of using his "cost-effective" idea of an iPod reception. We couldn't have made a better choice!!!
