Soundsations was an amazing DJ to work with, Mark was very friendly, easy to get along with and made the process easy and stress free. The online planning tool was great, it was easy to use and pointed out a few areas we hadn't thought of. The dance floor was packed all night and our friends and family are still telling us what a great party it was.
Both my husband and I would highly recommend Soundsations. Mark put a lot of time and effort info making sure our wedding music flowed wonderfully. He also spent time getting to know my husband and I at the meetings we had leading up to the wedding. Thanks again Mark for creating such an amazing experience! Our guests are still raving about the fun they had on the dance floor!
Thank you Mark! You did an EXCELLENT JOB!! All our guests loved the music and the selection! We are extremely happy with the turnout of your work. We would recommend anyone to have Mark as your DJ! He is PHENOMINAL!! Thank you so much for making our wedding day a very memorial one!

Exceeded expectations for lighting and DJing. Overall amazing, lots of expertise, catered to our exact needs and desires. We had so many compliments, and he really knew how to get everyone up and dancing! Would definitely recommend Mark!!
We hired Mark from Soundsations as the DJ for our wedding.
We were very happy with his web-based program, which enabled us (and our guests) to choose the music we would like to have played. We were also happy with his personal assistance and how the night was conducted.
On our package was included some lighting that made the room look amazing.
We strongly recommend his service!
Mark was very professional and was able to fulfill all of our requests. The dance floor was packed all night! It was really great to be able to work with a DJ who cared about what we wanted and was responsive to our questions. I would recommend Soundsations to anyone looking for a more personalized DJ service.
Mark was amazing. We loved his planning tools. They made organizing the day and our music choices a breeze. Our guests loved the request website. Our wedding was the perfect mix of music for everyone's tastes. We had a blast!! Mark was very friendly and super professional. We loved how he had previously been a club dj. It means he knows how to party. He was the one vendor that we didn't have to worry about. We would recommend him to anyone who wants a seamless wedding. He communicates and works in tandem with the officiant, mc and the venue
My husband and I really enjoyed working with Soundsations. From the first meeting, they were reliable, professional and very helpful. The music was well thought out and planned to our liking. The night of the wedding, the dance floor was packed all evening long! We were just thrilled and would recommend them to any bride and groom. Thanks Soundsations for a job well done!
I want to thank you Mark for a terrific cocktail hour and dance party at my sister's wedding. From our first meeting I knew that your attention to detail and your apt skills for listening to your clients would definitely pay off on the wedding day – and they did. My sister and her groom were absolutely delighted by your song selections and several guests told me on the morning after the wedding that you were the best DJ they had ever had at an event. I agree!
Thank you so much for taking the song and genre suggestions we provided ahead of time to heart. The planning meetings that you and I had together were both extremely helpful and fun. Together I think we were able to capture the spirit of the bride and groom through music, which made the evening all the more elegant, magical and memorable. Your meticulous planning and intuitive knowledge of the power of music matched the sophistication of the event – no small feat.
Your talent as a DJ is wonderful – something to behold. So glad to have worked with you!
Mark has been tremendous to work with. He will do what it takes to make it as perfect as possible. He will go above and beyond to help you personalize your wedding to exactly the way you had envisioned it. He will make you feel like he actually cares about his work, and that it isn't only a job for him, but his passion. We highly recommend Mark from Soundsations to any couple who are planning to get DJ services for their wedding day.
I would like to thank you so much for everything you've done. Soundsations Entertainment is amazing. The music was excellent and we received great comments.
Mark was recommended to my husband by his best man. Through the whole process he was very responsive and accomodating to our request. We only had 4 months to plan our wedding and Mark was always offering up suggestions and we often took him up on them. He made our day so special and we partied until the wee hours of the morning. Having worked with large DJ companies in the past, I found the relationship we built with Mark really helped us a create an experience for ourselves and our guests. I would never use a big DJ shop again- everything was personalized and exactly what we wanted. I would recommend Mark to any bride!
Soundstations entertainment put on an amazing night for a large party for my work. Mark had a great setup lights smoke macine lasers everything you need to really have a great party. He had a wide assortment of music and took request all night long. he was super friendly with all the guests and made are night real special. anyone who is looking for a great dj please call soundstation entertaiment i promise you will not be disapointed.
Vendor response to review
Thank you for the outstanding review! We value your feedback and enjoyed working with you.
From start to finish, both my wife and I, and family were extremely pleased with Mark of Soundsations Entertainment.
Mark first met us a few weeks before our big day, and discussed in great detail, with him, how we envisioned our Reception. We knew we were in the hands of a professional, when my wife and I learned of Mark's passion to "produce" a magical night, through what he would refer to as 'layering' our reception with properly chosen music for our diverse age group of guests.
Soundsations is not like any other DJ company. Soundsations came equipped with state of the art technology (not a record player or a lap top to play music from). The music was crisp, the bass was perfect, for our large party of guests (200 people). Mark's expertise in providing 'smart' music during the right times to our event, even made 'danceless' uncles (in their 50's), dance. It was an exciting time to watch our once 'danceless' uncles, dance. I was also most pleased to see our dance floor packed with friends and family of all ages, from start to finish.
A professional DJ service with the right people and equipment, is the most important component of having an exciting and memorable day. I would be happy to offer any point of reference for Soundsations Entertainment and will continue to share this distinguished company to those that are looking for a professional DJ boutique, to host their event.
Thank you for helping make our evening an unforgettable night!
Julia and Ryan
Mark of Soundsations Entertainment was the DJ at our wedding in July 2009.
Mark is extremely organized and professional, and spent considerable time with us prior to the wedding discussing what we did and did not want in terms of music and announcements. Mark is flexible in terms of his role at the wedding and is happy to take on a more visible role if requested, or alternatively, to sit back and let the music speak for itself. Mark accommodated all of our special music requests, in particular for our bridal party entrance, and it went off without a hitch. The mix of music (both mainstream and more traditional cultural music) was excellent and kept the dance floor packed all night.
Most importantly, Mark ensured that our reception ran smoothly and was stress-free. I knew he had everything taken care of and that I didn't need to worry about it, or micro-manage him. This was a huge relief to me, and why I would not hesitate to recommend Soundsations to anyone planning a wedding.
