Craig's Bio

“That was a great party!” is what I want your guests to be saying. Remembering the party, not the DJ, means that your event will be talked about for years to come.

I am with Sounds Abound because I love the work! I truly enjoy interacting with individuals in the crowd because that is what the guests remember the most. I am not there to draw attention to myself, but to lead the entire group in having a memorable evening.

I began as a DJ Assistant with Sounds Abound in 1992 and started taking on more lead roles around 1996. I really enjoyed how Ken and the other Sounds Abound DJs worked with the crowd. I learned a great deal from some of the area’s best entertainers. I feel the way I perform at an event comes from what I have learned from them and from my own experience throughout the years.

My professionalism, experience, and desire to make your event special for you will make me a great choice for your party.

Best Emcees Anywhere!

A friend recommended Sounds Abound for a DJ to use as our MC/DJ for our wedding. We watched a couple of the sample videos and picked Craig Mohler because of his personality and presence he creates for the room. After meeting him we knew we made the right choice. He made us feel confident in his ability to make our wedding day special for us and made sure we were the top priority. Everyone had a great time and was very complimentary towards Craig for his efforts. We can't thanks Sounds Abound and Craig for making our wedding reception a truly unforgettable night.

Excellent! Highly recommend

Craig was excellent for our July 2018 wedding. Unfortunately for me as the bride I had been sick all week and didn’t make it past 10ish on my wedding day. Craig kept all my friends and family on the dance floor and I had nothing but wonderful comments and videos from friends and family. It was almost like I was on the dance floor with them 😜 I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Thank you!

My husband and I got married on May 26th 2018, and our reception was at NorthFork Farm. We had Sounds Abound as our DJ and I have to tell you, they were the ABSOLUTE BEST! Craig Mohler was our DJ and  had the dance floor packed all night. Craig was in contact with us multiple times over the course of the planning process, especially closer to the event date and went over everything with us. He even gave us ideas of songs we could use when we were stuck and didn't know which way to go music wise. Vince was our photo booth attendant and he was happy and helpful and a delight as well! The music, photo booth, lights, and everything was perfect and I would use Sounds Abound for EVERY EVENT I THROW, if I had the money to do it! lol

Sounds Abound was an absolutely amazing company to work with! They replied in a timely manner to emails which was awesome! Craig M. helped make our wedding day a perfect one. He was always on point and directed the day so well! My husband and I are so grateful to have worked with them!

Anonymous Review

We had a great experience with Sounds abound. Craig was great. He was available for any questions that we had before the wedding. He kept us in the loop on the day of the wedding and helped make our day stress-free. His music was appropriate, leaning more towards less current music, which is fine by us. There was definitely a 90s vibe going on throughout the night. Our guests seem to have a great time and everyone was dancing all night. The customer service we experienced was exceptional and I would definitely recommend Craig to family and friends in the future.

Craig Mohler was our DJ and he did a fantastic job! He kept the dance floor full all night long and he manage a birthday surprise for my grandfather-in-law flawlessly. Many people told us after the wedding how much fun they had and that they thought the DJ was fantastic! If you're thinking about using Sounds Abound for your wedding, do yourself a favor and book them today. You will not be disappointed!

I cannot praise our DJ, Craig, enough; he was an amazing DJ, and we could not have been happier with him. We are still receiving compliments from our wedding guests about how great of a job Craig did.

Throughout the planning process, Craig was very attentive and engaged; he wanted to make certain that he knew the type of atmosphere that we wanted on our wedding day as well as the type of music that we wanted to be played. He was also very flexible with meeting times which we greatly appreciated.

On the wedding day, Craig was truly outstanding; he did a wonderful job of understanding the crowd and the right songs to be played at the moment; he is a natural at his job. We had over 200 guests at our wedding, and for a majority of the night, most of the guests were on the dance floor. I have never seen so many people dancing at a wedding.

Overall, Craig was very accommodating and understanding; we would highly recommend him to other couples, and we will keep him in mind for future events.

Holiday party

Craig Mohler was our DJ and he was fabulous! He contacted me before the event to see what kind of music and format we wanted as well as if any announcements were to be made. At the event we met beforehand and he would check in with me throughout the event to make sure everything was going well. Everyone had a blast and are saying best holiday party ever! Thank you so much! Will keep you in mind for the future and will definitely recommend you to others. Thank you for a great musical, fun experience!

Fantastic!

We hired Craig from Sounds Abound to be our DJ for our wedding, and he and his assistant were absolutely amazing! Craig got to know us and the type of music we like. At that meeting we could tell that he is very enthusiastic and passionate about his job. The timing for the music for our ceremony went flawless and cocktail hour was a hit. He was very upbeat during our introductions and kept everyone engaged in dancing during our reception. During our reception he checked in with us and was very flexible is adding a specific song in. Overall, Sound Abound has great staff. From the person we met at the expo, to the rep we were communicating with to help us pick a DJ, I would highly recommend Sounds abound and Craig to others.

Hello, I would love to give my testimonial! My husband Joe and I had Craig for our DJ. I must say that he was AMAZING! He was interacting with the crowd, teaching line dances, and just all around a fun guy! I would recommend him to anyone who needs a DJ! He also checked in with Joe and I through out the night! I knew from meeting him the first time that he was going to be great and fun! I will for sure miss working with Craig but if we need a DJ again we will know where to go and who to ask for! I wish I was able to say more about your company and Craig but I would write a long book! Haha! Again Craig was amazing! Sounds Abound has a real great DJ on their hands! Amanda

Absolutely loved working with Craig Mohler with Sounds Abound! We selected him as the DJ for our daughter's wedding. We weren't sure how to get started and Craig was there for us every step of the way. He was a huge help in the planning of both the wedding and reception music. He combined our requests with his knowledge of how to make a wedding reception memorable for the special couple and all the guests. Thanks to Craig, everyone had a wonderful time!!

Craig Mohler - Sounds Abound

After viewing the online portfolios for all of the Sounds Abound DJs, my fiancee and I decided on Craig Mohler. Craig was a pleasure to work with. He communicated very well with us prior to our big day, was very accessible in person, phone and email, and made sure no detail was overlooked. Very professional, made our wedding reception a blast. I would highly recommend Craig for any event.

Quality, reliable, excellence

I (wedding planner) hired Craig with Sounds Abound for a backyard wedding that took place last Saturday. He was responsible for playing the music for both the ceremony and the reception. Craig did a fantastic job, alongside his assistant. He was very sensitive to my instructions and careful to pay attention to the little things that mattered to the bride (style of announcing, timing, etc). The music was perfectly cued during the ceremony and once the dance floor was opened up, it was clear that Craig was very experienced in gauging his audience; he knew what people wanted to hear and acted accordingly. He was also very good at timing; he stuck to my schedule perfectly. Thanks to him, we had a wonderful evening. Another note worth mentioning was the pre-event contact I had with Craig. He was diligent in being fully prepared for the event. He responded quickly to my emails and ensured that he was not a factor for me to worry about close to the event date. He also followed up with me post-event to ensure my satisfaction. I highly recommend this DJ.

I wanted to thank your company and particularly DJ Craig. My sister Maggie's wedding was in October of last year and it went phenomenally well. DJ Craig helped my pull off a surprise for my sister's speech and as I said on yelp, he helped me in ways I didn't realize I needed. I'm a little deaf and I never thought to ask to make sure the volume was up high so I could hear it, but he did it without my asking. He was also very discrete. I was able to surprise everyone at the reception. He gave me a very nice compliment afterwards and I wish I had remembered to thank him right then. It was a wonderful wedding in no small part because of the music. The happy couple are still together and we're all still talking about what a great day it was. Thank you for being part of it. It was nice that with all the worrying going on beforehand, we didn't have to worry about the entertainment. Craig, thanks for having my back!

Professional, communicative, fun!

I felt that they made the entire process easy, fun, and stress free. Our DJ was Craig, and he literally captivated the romantic, fun vibe I was looking to achieve for our wedding. He was prompt, professional, and overall just really experienced in creating the perfect tracks to get everyone out on the floor. I felt anxious about the night going well because of our location of the dance floor- he exceeded my expectations and did more than a Dj has to, to ease my mind and reassure me. Everyone loved him, it was like I had one of my friends behind the Dj booth! (Sorry for all of the drunken frat boys hanging around you a significant portion of the night though, Craig) But I'd like to Thank you for entertaining our requests, even playing "turn down for what" earlier than we planned!(= I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a DJ...Thankyou again!

GREAT DJ!!!!!

Craig Mohler was the DJ for our wedding, with an assistance, Vince. They did a fantastic job! They kept our dance floor packed and ensured our agenda stayed on track. Sounds Abound was easy to work with from the beginning to the end! Their online client tool is extremely useful and helped coordinate the event easily with the DJ. They have packages for various needs and prices. I would recommend Sounds Abound and Craig Mohler!

Accommodating, Professional, Friendly!

Craig was the absolute best DJ! He contacted me multiple times before the wedding to make sure everything was perfect. I also had a few requests regarding genre's that I didn't want to be played and he followed them to a tee! He was very friendly and professional and we could not have asked for a better DJ! Thanks!

Darlene and I highly recommend Sounds Abound as a class act with numerous experienced wedding dj's with an eye to detail and special touches.
The interaction with Craig  Mohler was exceptional. Initial telephone planning, music selections, and final in person meeting were outstanding and made our wedding a tremendous success.  All aspects of the MC and music were  exceptional and all of our guest had a wonderful time.
Of particular appreciation was the ability of Craig to engage and lead the Line Dance dance songs. This by far allowed the entire group to gander the courage the hit the floor.

Best possible DJ experience. The Maid Of Honor rapped her speech to the music of Fresh Prince of Bel Air, my husband and I planned a surprise dance, and the mother of the bride planned a flash mod. All events went off without a hitch due to the professional and experienced DJ Craig Mohler at Sounds Abound. Introductions were excellent and the entire night was exactly what we had hoped for, if not more. Craig was the DJ for both my sister's and cousin's wedding as well. I highly recommend his work. He even let the bride since Tiny Dancer at the end of the night. Thanks for everything Craig!!!

Highly Recommended

Sounds Abound was highly recommended by the event coordinators at Maggiano's and I can see why. This is our second year back there for our company Christmas party, and we had even more fun this year than last, which was hard to top, but I requested Craig again, and he made it happen!! If we're lucky enough to have another party next year, I know I'll ask for Craig.

We just wanted to thank Craig Mohler for the great job he did with our wedding. We had a meeting with Craig about a month before our wedding to discuss the details and a follow-up phone call the week of the wedding. We felt we connected with Craig and he understood what type of music we wanted played during cocktails, dinner, and for dancing. He was always there to answer our questions and kept the night moving along on time. Everyone had a great time. We had a great experience with Sounds Abound and would recommend them in the future. Thanks again Craig!

Craig was the DJ for our wedding on July 20, 2013, and he did a great job! Everyone of all ages was out on the dance floor because of him!

Craig used his experience to fine tune our evening’s playlist to keep the dance floor filled and the mood high for all of our guests and, as a result, we received many rave comments about the party and Sounds Abound. We would strongly recommend the people at Sounds Abound and especially Craig Mohler for any occasion or event that deserves a great party. Thank you Craig, Vincenzo and Sounds Abound."

The online wedding planner also was a terrific aid for the reception. Meetings with Craig always went smooth and he was very helpful in helping us plan the reception. Everything we asked for he did for us, even last minute changes. Our wedding was to end at 11pm, and at 1030pm we asked Craig if he could stay an extra half hour. He was absolutely happy to do so for us, and had a smile on his face the entire time. Everyone we talked to said he was so great and put on a good party and accomodated many song suggestions that were made. I am so thankful we chose Sounds Abound and Craig to be our DJ.
