I met JT almost a year and a half before the wedding, he was working an event at my work and he was doing a fantastic job. My fiance and I ended up booking him before we had even booked our venue and it was hands down the easiest (and best) decision of wedding planning. I was concerned with us booking so far out that our reservation would get lost and we would be scrambling at the last minute and that was never the case. We kept in touch via email on and off between booking in 2/12 and our wedding in 7/13 and met with him a few weeks before the wedding to finalize everything. The meeting was easy and fun and he had great ideas for music for our cocktail hour. At the wedding he kept everyone out on the dance floor and played just about every genre imaginable and was perfect for our very eclectic wedding guests. He also setup colored lights behind some pipe and drape behind the head table, which looked amazing during the reception. My husband's very particular grandfather was still complementing his work days after the event. You will not regret your decision to book JT and Whatcom Sound for your wedding, they are a fantastic bunch to work with and will be the easiest decision of your wedding planning! Thank you for everything JT

We loved our DJ. We weren't originally planning to have one, but when we saw they had a special for Sunday afternoons, we just had to snag the deal.
They had a wonderful selection of music and kept the dance floor moving, even during our Sunday afternoon reception (and that's a tough time to get people dancing!)

We can't thank you enough. The music was perfect from beginning to end. We had a wide variety of age groups and all were happy with the music. I wanted to surprise my husband and sang him a song and the sound was perfect. Our DJ was Jack Duran and he was great. Thank you Jack. Thank you Paxton for meeting with us and talking over the phone to organize the event. We're so glad we used Whatcom sound. You are all very professional and got the party started.

How do I reply to such a comment? Let me start by telling you I am owner of Whatcom Sound, Paxton Rembert(please contact me at 360-303-0888, direct line) Let me tell you a few details that were left out of the review by disgruntled Aka Eric & Lindsay wedding which was on 8/2/08 at Semiahmoo. First we always have signed contracts with retainersI will show anybody the signature by Lindsay dated 2/27/08 with the retainer amount of $525. Secondly the song list was played while people were being seated as instructed by the bride---The bridal party may have been in the back preparing to come out to the ceremony and may have not heard itor maybe they were doing other things besides listening to music? After spending hours getting the large list of there music why would we not play it???? It makes our job easier!!! Let me tell you about the HOMEMADE DVD First I can tell you that our company provided the projector and screen---Nothing elseNothing else was asked or charged for to play their HOMEMADE DVD. We did not even get the DVD until we were on site to provide the music for the ceremony and the party. I have no idea on what format it was created on and by whom. Oh the audio part, they forgot to mention that the wedding coordinator they hired told us to set the video screen and projector at the other side of the tent, over 150ft away from the sound system, she also told us to play music that would be suitable, during the DVD. Oh ya nobody told us there was audio on the dvd!!!!! If we had been able to put the screen up were we suggested near the sound system, we would have been happy to play the audio!! Why wouldnt we? On the 18yr old Dj, they forgot to mention that we had 2 Djs there. The other Dj that was there was in his 30s and has many years of experience, but I didnt charge for that either, so if I had spread myself to thin why did we have 2 Djs at their event???? We have 8 Djs who we can send out to events on each day, and 14 complete sound systems for back up. Let me tell ya about the good part!!! What he didnt tell ya was they went for 2 hours of overtime!!!!! Wow it was so badthey only went 2 hours longer!!! Go figureoh and then my Dj gave them a 50% discount on the overtime!!! Now here is the best part, Semiahmoo security was called because some guests were physically threatening my djs because of the problems with their DVD. I let my djs decide if they wanted to stay, I think they had every right to leave after being threatened, but they chose to stay and had a great party!! I guess 2 extra hours of dancing and partying past the contract end timewas worth a full refund???? I dont understandDO YOU? Please call if you have any questions. Paxton Rembert owner 360-303-0888 Does he think his wedding is a scam? WOW

Hello All, I am not one to write to this type of forum but I feel strongly enought to share my experience with Whatcom Sound. Where to start... DONT HIRE THEM! The first thing that should have tipped me off was the fact that the company wanted money up front with no sort of contract... correct me if I am wrong but usually you will give the company money after or during the contract has been signed. Not in this case, they refused to send a contract unless they had a deposit ($500 of which the total became 1400) Moving along from that... My wife and I spent a long amount of time trying to put together a playlist which partially was played, most songs were simply left out. We brought a homemade dvd to play during the reception and for some unknown reason the dj could not get the sound to play... You are a dj are you not suppose to be in charge of the sound. The dj we had was all of 18 years old (I later found out that Whatcom Sound spread themselves too thin whith their bookings that the had to hire this kid), he then proceeded to repeat throught the night. Lastly the Owner of the company was completely unaccomodating when we asked for a portion of the money back. I know the whole wedding thing is a scam... luckely enough this did not ruin the wedding but in no shape or form was it worth the money. Beware, its hard to put your trust in something that you can physically purchase like a DJ but this is not the one for you.

Whatcom sound offers DJ service, but I didn't actually book a DJ. My friend is an MC and another friend is great at putting together playlists, so I just rented a PA Sound System from them and it was great. Very nice equipment, it all worked and sounded great. Everyone I dealt with at Whatcom Sound was very helpful and informative. They were never pushy or salesy, and they were all very accommodating as far as picking up the equipment and dropping it back off. I would definitely recommend them!

Our DJ was amazing!! He's been doing this for years and knows how to keep the crowd alive. Everyone had such a great time with the music variety; there was something for everyone to enjoy. He set the mood for the evening and it was a blast.

Jack at Whatcom sound was GREAT the day of. Very flexible and able to get the dance floor going the whole time. The only thing I wish that they were better on was responsiveness. I had to contact them multiple times to get responses during a few times in the process and it was not ideal. Otherwise though, I would work with them again.
