Geoff's Bio

Hi there. My name is Geoff (Sounds like Jeff. Strange I know, but it wasn’t my idea). I’ve been working with Sounds Abound since 2013, learning under all of the other awesome DJs at weddings and events all over the Chicagoland area. I love working with people to put on a great evening of music and dancing that everyone can enjoy. It’s not just my job to DJ; it’s my job to make sure you have the perfect night. I’ve handled a fair share of weddings, and I’m confident that together we can create an event no one will be forgetting any time soon. I am a big fan of all types of music and will be able to take your favorite songs and turn them into a dance floor playlist no one will be able to resist. Thank you for taking the time to consider me for the DJ of choice for your big day, and rest assured that whoever you end up going with, you are in the right place at Sounds Abound.

What Clients Say About Geoff

Really happy we chose Sounds Abound and Geoff as the DJ for our wedding in August! Geoff did a great job with communicating with us throughout the planning process, making sure he understood our hopes and our requests for the music at our reception. He was great with announcing the wedding party and the speeches, and keeping the dance floor moving! The dinner service from our caterer was slow and got the reception behind schedule, and Geoff checked in with me just enough to make sure we kept things moving. We did end up losing an hour of dancing because of dinner and long speeches, but Geoff was awesome with making great song choices for our more limited dance time, making it totally worth it!!

Geoff was wonderful! So professional, easy to work with, and fun! Any song we found or wanted they were able to get for us, even more unknown artists. Our wedding had a lot of close family, so quite a few elderly people, and even they came on the dance floor! My sister is using them for her wedding too! My husband and I both would highly recommend them!

Geoff was the DJ at our wedding and he was AMAZING! He made the planning process super easy and had great energy the night of our event. He put together a fantastic playlist for our cocktail hour and reception. We received a TON of compliments on the songs he played as well as the attitude he had the entire length of our event. We, and all of our guest, loved him!

Our DJ Geoff from Sounds Abound was awesome!! He knew exactly what we wanted to hear all night and definitely did a great job doing it! I danced the whole night because he played great music!! Did a great job with all the uplighting as well.

I recently got married on 8-18-18 and we hired Sounds Abound for our music. We hired Geoff and he was terrific. We gave him a list of songs with different music that we liked and he took it from there. He was very professional, and had our dance floor full the entire night. I would highly recommend this company as well as Geoff our wedding and reception was beautiful.

We gave Geoff a lot of free reign within some general guidelines. He made fantastic music selections, and read the crowd incredibly well. Towards the end of the night, he saw the demographic of the dancers and tuned the music for their generation. The energy was great all night, and we never expected that the dance floor would be so crowded for so long. He was incredibly flexible when I wanted to surprise everyone (including my wife) by playing my guitar and singing a song for my wife. He came through with all of the sound equipment and it couldn't have gone smoother. I have heard endless compliments for him from all of our guests.

We Danced the Night Away!!

We had Geoff as our DJ for our wedding. He was awesome! The only thing I wanted for my wedding reception was for people to be dancing and my guests and I danced the night away. This was no ordinary wedding, our dance floor was PACKED! People danced all night and we had to expand outside of the dance floor because so many people were dancing. The songs the DJs played were fun and kept people of all ages on the dance floor. Everyone complimented our DJs and told us what a great time they had at the wedding. I would highly recommend using Sounds Abound for your wedding!

Geoff was our DJ for our wedding last week. He did an amazing job, was so easy to work with and kept our dance floor full the entire night! We had an amazing evening and couldn't have asked for anything more! Highly recommend Sounds Abound to anyone planning an event.

Geoff and Matt were excellent DJ's for our wedding. They were prompt and professional for the evening, and checked in with us during the event. They played all of our favorites, and kept the dance floor moving when the time came. We received so many complements on the evening, and the DJ was at the top of the list! Thank you guys for a wonderful night!

My wife and I chose Sounds Abound because of all the good reviews and recommendations we saw while organizing our wedding. We had Geoff as our DJ and we couldn't be happier. He did a fantastic job emceeing and was very accommodating to all our requests, he was even able to naturally work in special music requests that really had no place in a wedding reception! He was great and took a lot of the stress off of a pretty hectic time for both us. I would recommend Sounds Abound above anyone else!!

Fun and smooth wedding DJ experience!

SoundsAbound was recommended to us by our venue as one of their preferred vendors and we're so glad! We chose DJ Geoff Rafferty for our services and he was fantastic. Everything about the music from start to finish was easy, accommodating and reasonably priced.

Geoff was very lax, which is great on the day of when you don't have time to worry about vendors. We mostly had him stick to our own playlist we created through their online portal, but what he added was very appropriate and he always had people dancing. Geoff was very good at reading the room.

I highly recommend SoundsAbound and particularly Geoff for any special occasion!
