What Clients Say About Gregg
Thank you so much to Greg for being an incredible DJ. Communication with him was seamless! He was honestly the easiest vendor to work with. We had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID and he accepted our new date right away. Would 100% recommend this company!

Thank you Greg for such a wonderful evening!!! You made our night soooo special! For a couple that doesn't dance, we actually danced several times and had a blast! Our guests loved the music and we were grateful for you keeping us on track but still being flexible. Everything was perfect from the ceremony through cocktail hour and the reception. You honored our weird requests to play alternative, almost had to compete with a bagpiper and a music festival (whew!), and dealt with our crazy drunk relatives!! Sincerely, thank you! we also lived the photo booth and got numerous compliments on it! Everyone thought it was soooo fun! If you're thinking about it- the social booth is the way to go! They customized a frame to our wedding theme so guests would see this when printed or sent to their phones! We recieve all the digital copies as well! So cool!

Above and Beyond!
Gregg made the entire process for us extremely easy. We had a few meetings via zoom leading up to the wedding so he could go through everything with us and help to understand the vision we had for our wedding. He was able to provide some advice for us about his experiences, but absolutely helped to make the day ours. We would absolutely use Sounds Abound again!

I'm so glad we hired Sounds Abound for our wedding! Gregg Eisel was our DJ, and he was so wonderful to work with. Our wedding had multiple COVID-related delays, and Sounds Abound was incredibly accommodating, responsive, and willing to move dates with us. We also planned our wedding from across the country, which I thought might be challenging logistically, but Gregg was so easy to work with via email. We got to meet him a few days before the wedding to iron out the details, and he had some great ideas on how to maintain the crowd's attention and keep the flow of the evening going. The day of, Gregg & his assistant were timely, professional, and fun! I never had to wonder if he had the right songs for the ceremony/events, and he was our person on-site who kept the events moving along smoothly. He even wove in some songs during dinner that related to the wedding speeches. We gave him entirely free rein when it came to the dance floor, as we just wanted our guests to have fun, and he delivered! He read the room and kept people happy the whole event. Thanks Gregg for such a memorable wedding!
Awesome dance-all-night fun
Gregg was phenomenal! From the info gathering stages to playing all our fav songs to the dance floor light show ! He made an awesome event! THANKS GREGG!

Gregg Eisel from Sounds Abound knew how to keep our guests moving, even during a chilly outdoor reception! We were seriously impressed by how busy the dancfloor was the whole night, and Gregg's team was great at figuring out what the crowd wanted to hear. Our 8 year old niece and older friends didn't stop moving the whole night! Between their online ceremony planner and speaking with Gregg's before the wedding, we were never at a loss for what songs to play or when. So grateful for such a great DJ 🙂

Hello Gregg, Would just like to take the time to thank you for being our DJ Saturday on such an important day for us. You did such an amazing job! Everyone seemed to enjoy the music! Thank you so much again for all the hard work you put into the music list. We're very happy with how it turned out! I will definitely recommend you to anyone else I know that may be getting married in the future!

We had chosen to work with Sounds Abound (and specifically Gregg Eisel) after attending several weddings within my husband's family. We noticed that each wedding had a very different feel and all of them encapsulated the bride and groom wonderfully. We were initially concerned with how communication would work due to living out of state, but Gregg was awesome and made sure to reach out periodically as well as quick responses to any questions. We got slightly confused by their website, I definitely recommend going over the website with your DJ to ensure you complete all necessary forms (we forgot the important one!). Despite all of this, Gregg was helpful and so kind to us during our meeting. He helped us figure out ways to make our song list and entry music more unique to us and over all I believe that contributed to creating the desired vibe. Gregg was always contactable and worked hard to ensure that we had all of our musical needs met prior to the day of so there were no last minute questions. Gregg kept the timing of the night going smoothly and was able to read the crowd/play songs so that everyone could enjoy dancing. I am so grateful that we chose to work with Gregg and Sounds Abound!
June 1, 2019
Gregg, Thank you again for everything. You made it a perfect evening!
We chose Gregg to DJ our wedding. Gregg was fantastic! The dance floor always had people on it. I received so many compliments of how awesome our DJ was. I would recommend SoundsAbound to anyone!

Simply the best!
This is the second time we have had Gregg Eisel and Sounds Abound at an event. We truly appreciate his professionalism and the way he “got the party started.” The entire process from meeting and planning with Gregg to the event, was seamless. He was very accommodating and flexible with our requests. We highly recommend Gregg Eisel and Sounds Abound for your next event. Dianne and Mary

Best DJ’s around!
Our experience with Soundsabound exceeded our expectations! DJ Gregg Eisel was approachable and easy to communicate with. He did a great job staying organized, was on schedule throughout the night, and was very friendly. Our guests never left the dance floor!!

Hi Gregg, Thank you so much for your awesome skills last night. It is a pleasure to work with you and thank you for being a great long time partner. The room looked beautiful and people loved the music! Thanks again!
October 19, 2018
Our DJ Gregg was great, the dance floor at our wedding was never empty. He did say we had the perfect playlist and that he had never seen so many people all night on the dance floor. It’s the most important thing you can ask from the DJ, so thanks Sounds Abound and Gregg for an unforgettable night!!
September 29, 2018
Gregg is extremely professional. We were quite pleased! He took the time to meet with us after reviewing the selections we’d made to the website in order to get a good idea of our music preferences. In the meeting, he made some suggestions based on that information. Days before our wedding, he followed up to review and make sure that all was in order. At our reception venue, he was set up and organized in a timely manner and kept our guests dancing the entire evening!
September 22, 2018
Hi Gregg Thank you! You helped make our wedding very special. We couldn't have asked for a better day and you were a huge part of making it all come together, so we really can't thank you enough. We had many guests come up to us and compliment you & your assistant and how you were able to make the reception so fun but still uniquely representative of Alana & I.
August 25, 2018
Bill Said.. Thank you so much Gregg! You did a fantastic job! Everything was on point and what a special touch working with my Grandfathers music and bringing it to the party! You are top notch and thanks to all at Sounds abound Entertainment!

Tara said... Gregg at Sounds Abound was fantastic! He has done three of my friends weddings, and music is so very important for the whole feeling of the night, that we had no hesitation in hiring the best! He really spent time talking to us beforehand to get a sense of what type of music we liked and what type we didn't like, as well as did a great job going with the flow of the evening. He even changed the dinner music to reflect our speeches! However, most importantly, you could tell he loved what he did. Would highly recommend!

Gregg Eisel It was great to work with him from the beginning. He came by recommendation and we cannot thank our contact enough for putting us in contact with him. He was very professional and he listenined to our requests and produced that and so much more. Our group consisted of married couples of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. Gregg handled the entire evening just like we visioned. it was obvious to us and to all that attended he enjoyed his work and took pride in all of his music selections. We would highly recommend Gregg for any occasion.

A big thank you to Sounds Abound and to Gregg Eisel, our very special DJ, for making my 70's Disco Birthday Party a huge success. Gregg arrived early to make certain that everything was tested and in place before the event began. Gregg contacted me before the party to discuss my vision and then he provided an absolutely perfect experience of what I described. He came prepared to play all the music I had requested plus additional tunes some of the guests asked for. He kept pace with the group and kept them up dancing the whole night. And you could not get me off the dance floor. I was ecstatic. The light show was so far beyond what I expected. Our party room became a real disco and everyone enjoyed the blast from the past. Thanks again to Gregg and all the professional staff at Sounds Abound. I highly recommend them and would definitely book them again.

An Absolute Great Wedding Reception with Sounds Abound
Sounds Abound and Gregg Eisel (our DJ) were absolutely great. We went in for an open house and met Gregg and were sold immediately. The online event planner made it easy for us to communicate which songs we needed to hear, which songs we wanted to hear, and most importantly the ones we did not want hear! Leading up to our event we spoke with Gregg to ensure he had all the details he needed for our reception. He provided music/microphones for our ceremony and reception. The music never stopped and most importantly our guests were dancing all night long!
September 3, 2017
We had our wedding on August 26 of this year and couldn't be more pleased with the results. At first, my husband and I almost didn't go with a DJ as we are pretty particular about our music. However, after much deliberation (and hesitation) we decided to at least check out Sounds Abound to see what it was all about. Gregg listened to everything we wanted and didn't want, gave his honest and valid opinion on things, and took notes about things we discussed with him. After meeting with him a couple times, we felt confident going into our wedding night. The night of, however, Gregg and his assistant completely exceeded our expectations. They did exactly what we wanted and more, and we honestly couldn't have come up with a better playlist for the ceremony, dinner/cocktails, and reception if we had put it together ourselves. We received so many compliments on the music all night long and for the entire week and my husband and I still can't get over how well it turned out! I would highly recommend both Sounds Abound and Gregg to anyone looking for a DJ for their event. Thank you Gregg (and assistant Ryan) SO very much for taking the time to listen to our crazy requests and making them work, you were absolutely amazing and we had a blast with you guys!!

I am writing to thank you and commend our music coordinator, Gregg Eisel. Our Golden Wedding Anniversary Party was a huge success and the music played a large part. From our first encounter with you to the last with Gregg we were nothing but more than satisfied. You made doing business with you easy and your technology is terrific.
Gregg Eisel started out the evening with us as a stranger and ended by becoming a member of the family. He spent a great deal of time with our daughters planning for our event. He did a fantastic job with the music, lighting and coordinating the many special things that were planned throughout the evening. Gregg in his delightful manner kept the evening moving while not interfering with the emotional mood of the evening. That is truly a skill. As purely a DJ, he is second to none that I have seen. The evidence is that the dance floor was filled the entire night by four generations of family and friends. Even my family members with physical disabilities were up on the floor. It was simply amazing.
So in closing, I thank you both for being part of the happiest family event of our lives.

We had SUCH a wonderful wedding with Gregg Eisel as our dj. From the start, he was extremely on top of all of our planning, showing us how to pick songs we wanted to have played at our wedding and showing us the best way to fill out our wedding worksheet. He then suggested a final meeting to go over everything, which I found extremely helpful, as we both found things to change for the better from what my husband and I had chose. He also contacted me a few days before our event to do a final rundown; needless to say, my mind was very much at ease when it came to our big day.. I knew Gregg knew exactly what my husband and I wanted and I had nothing to worry about. Our wedding music went off without a hitch and we had an AMAZING time dancing the night away! I am really not a dancer and even I was out on the dancefloor all night! I highly recommend Sounds Abound and Gregg for your next dj-ed event.

Excellent DJ Service!
This is the second year in a row that I've used Sounds Abound for our company holiday party, and I would use them again. They are reasonably priced and work hard to make our parties fun. This year I called our DJ, Gregg, the day before our event to ask for help to come up with some ideas to give away our door prizes in a more exciting fashion than just drawing names out of a hat. Gregg helped me come up with a few excellent ideas and he had all our party attendees participating and having a blast, which lasted the whole evening. Thank you, Sounds Abound, for such great service!
December 10, 2016
Gregg, thank you so much for everything! Words can not express how happy Kurt and I are with you and your team! We got so many compliments about the music and I never saw an empty dance floor! The photo booth was a hit and we had the best time looking through all of the photos! Thank you so much again!! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ!!
September 3, 2016
We celebrated our wedding with Gregg as our DJ recently. We loved having the online system to add our info and pick songs. Then meeting with Gregg before the wedding was super helpful. The reception was AMAZING!!! Gregg was soooo great with introductions, checking in with us throughout the night, and keeping the dance floor going!!! We loved the music, we loved the evening, and we would definitely recommend Gregg and Sounds Abound for wedding receptions. Thank you for making our day special!

Sounds Abound DJ
Dj Gregg Eisel of Sounds Abound made our silver anniversary party almost as much fun as our wedding. There was never a lull on the dance floor. Our guests have all been asking for a copy of our playlist. I attribute this to Gregg taking the time to personally meet with us and get a feel of our personalities. Guests seated next to speakers commented on their experience being pleasant and grateful for not being blasted out of their seats. Made the evening personable and fun. Great time incorporating the Cubs winning the World Series into our event.

Best DJ company ever!
We worked with Gregg at sounds abound, and he could not have made the experience any more enjoyable! He worked with us every step of the way, and on the big day was a complete professional, and did an amazing job listing to the crowd and keeping the party going-not just a sports announcer who then let the playlist roll. I would recommend this company to anyone who wants an amazing wedding night with a packed dance floor!
September 17, 2016
Our ceremony and reception went so beautifully due to the excellent Job from Gregg from Sounds Abound . One can tell right away he has loads of experience and would offer a friendly suggestion when we needed one . He also listened to the many special requests we asked him to do and he did them with such professionalism . I would recommend Gregg with Sounds Abound whole heartedly. He is a great MC as well superb DJ.

Private User said... Sounds Abound did such a great job at my friend's wedding I checked them out. Gregg did a fantastic job for her wedding and mine. I really like that you could meet with your DJ ahead of time which was really helpful in everyone understanding what we as a couple were looking for. The software and planning tools they provide are excellent. This made the whole progress easier. I appreciated that they have a final consult before the big day to make sure everything is how you like it. They are very flexible and have great suggestions. Everyone had a blast and was dancing all night. They even did music for my outdoor ceremony.
Gregg did an awesome job at our wedding! He was very receptive to what we wanted, and his experience in the business really showed. The dance floor was packed the whole night!

Gregg was terrific!
My husband, Scott, and I could not be more pleased with the experience we had with Sounds Abound and with Gregg, in particular. As Scott and I were boyfriend and girlfriend as teenagers and reconciled in our 50's, we had some very specific ideas about our music..kind of a "retro" theme. Gregg gave us some great suggestions at our meeting and showed up at our wedding looking very dapper. He kept the crowd dancing and participating. Our guests were so pleased with the music and some said they wanted our playlist! I highly recommend Sounds Abound...and Gregg.

I have had the pleasure of attending several functions where Gregg Eisel was the DJ. Regardless of whether it was a wedding, corporate function or charitable event, Gregg played a great mix of music that everyone could enjoy.
Gregg did an excellent job of keeping the party going by integrating and mixing all the music for my daughter's wedding. His pre-wedding meeting and personal "interview" was very valuable in getting to know our requests and preferences for music on the big day.
Thanks Gregg for your key contribution.

Extremely detail oriented, great variety of music, commanding emcee & played what we wanted to hear
We couldn't have imagined a more perfect wedding day - and Gregg and the Sounds Abound team made it all possible. We experienced a Sounds Abound wedding for the first time back in December 2013; Gregg and the team actually DJed my brother and sister in law's wedding! We loved the style and the command Gregg had with the crowd, so making our decision was easy.
Fast forward to our wedding - from the initial booking process to the final, magical day, Gregg and the Sounds Abound team were an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only did Gregg spend a ton of time with me on the phone going over my questions (late into the evenings after work, on his personal cell, no less!) but he really took the time to listen to what was important to us and work with us to create the vision we had in mind. The team went above and beyond in every aspect.
We also used Sounds Abound for acoustics for the wedding ceremony (we had a micced officiant and an instrumental duet at our outdoor ceremony) and they took care of everything; working with our musicians and the venue to make sure we were covered.
One of my most favorite parts of the ceremony (out of 50,000 or more!) was our introduction - Riley and I are huge fans of EDM music. We thought it would be awesome to walk into Red Lights by Tiesto. Gregg worked with us to make the timing happen perfectly. A small detail, but it added to the rest of the magic of the day.
Thank you to you and your team!

It was wonderful working with Sounds Abound and Gregg for our wedding. We thought we would have difficulty because our tastes in music are a little different from the norm, but he managed to find a common ground between what we like and what our guests would enjoy. By asking us very in depth questions about our individual music tastes, he was able to tailor a playlist that made the night perfect. His role as an MC could not have gone any better either, he was welcoming, friendly, humorous, and did all he could to make the night go smoothly. He was attentive to us and the wedding party, and he was very response to calls, texts, and emails we sent to him throughout the planning of the big day. He was very understanding too, he offered suggestions that helped us out but at the end of the day he respected our decisions if we wanted to do things a bit different than normal. It was a great night, and we are very glad we went with Sounds Abound!
October 24, 2015
Gregg was our DJ for our wedding and did an amazing job!! He played all our favorite songs as well as many other fun ones too! Everyone who attended our wedding had a blast dancing the night away! We recommend Gregg and Sounds Abound for anytime you may need a DJ!

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!
Gregg is an excellent DJ--fantastic! This was actually the second time he has DJed for my family (and several of my cousins have also used different DJs from Sounds Abound). Gregg did such a great job at my sister's wedding in 2012, that there was no reason to even shop around by the time we started planning our wedding. We called Sounds Abounds and asked for Gregg, and booked him right away.
He worked with us and played all the songs we requested. He even had suggestions for the order of a couple songs because he said in his experience it would get more poeple on the dance floor--and it definitely seemed to work, because the dance floor was full. Once the dancing started, the only time the dance floor was empty was when everyone went outside to watch Fourth of July fireworks, but Gregg still kept the music going outside via a wireless speaker and played some festive Fourth of July music :).
The music may have been the best part of the reception (except for the company of course :)), but everyone was dancing and everyone stayed to the end of the party (we had around 120 guests-I think only 3 of them left an hour early)! It's been over 2 months since our wedding and guests are still telling us what a "rockin'" party it was--literally that it was one of the best weddings, if not the best, that they'd ever been to, and many of them specifically sited the music "one good song after another...5 good songs in a row..couldn't take a break!" I credit a lot of that to Gregg for setting the atmosphere and keeping it going with the music (I'd give second credit to the shape and set up of the Hotel Baker's Rainbow Room, where the dance floor is huge and in the center of everything--but if the music isn't good, people aren't going to want to be out there anyways). There is definitely proof of all this through our wedding pictures too. You can see how much fun everyone was having--lot's of great action shots, smiles, laughing and tons of people on the dance floor!
Thank you so much Gregg for making our day perfect 🙂

Sounds Abound exceeded our expectations in every way! We hired them for DJ and emcee services at our wedding in Chicago. Even though we live in Washington DC, coordinating calls before the big event was a breeze, DJ Gregg made himself available to us at anytime. We had a few very unusual song requests, and DJ Gregg had no problem finding them and incorporating them into the playlist. The end result - EVERYONE was on the dance floor, from age 2 to 72! I also wanted to sing a song to the groom on my ukulele as a special surprise, and DJ Gregg was able to walk me through the setup to create this special moment for us. I will add too that our schedule was completely off for the night, and they were able to take charge and easily readjust the timing with our photographer and caterer. I can't recommend highly enough!

EXCEPTIONAL COMPANY ALL AROUND
Sounds Abound has been a delight from every aspect! From our first meeting to review their packages of music and photo booths to confirming the final details of music with our DJ, we experienced exceptional service. Each member of Sounds Abound is professional and helpful. We planned our event from out of state and Sounds Abound provided helpful information to our inquiries. They want your event to be how you envision it. Our DJ, Gregg Eisel, absolutely phenomenal in his art of music and entertainment! A sincere thank you to Gregg and Sounds Abound for their genuine professionalism and outstanding service!

From the first "Hello" to the last "Good Bye" Sounds Abound was there for us!!!
My wife and I got married in June of 2015 and we absolutely loved working with Sounds Abound. From the moment we walked through the door to the last good bye with our DJ Greg, we honestly felt like they were as excited to be part of our big day as we were. Gregg Eisel was our DJ and he was amazing. He went above and beyond what we were expecting from an entertainment service by accepting and responding to phone calls and text messages throughout the day. He worked with us to help us capture the day we wanted and dreamed about for the year and a half it took to plan the wedding. Then, on the day of the wedding, Greg did an amazing job juggling all the last minute changes and little hicups that came his way and did it all with a smile. Greg helped make our day special and we would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Greg and thank you Sounds Abound for an amazing experience!!!
Sincerely, Mike and Kristin Murphy

Awesome professional service
The online music library allows you to have as much control over the music played as you want. You also get to choose your own DJ based on your own style and needs! The company and DJs have tons of experience and are extremely professional, so they will listen and comply with your requests. They really made our wedding a super fun time!
June 27, 2015
A Perfect Fit!
Look no further for a DJ service! The responsiveness, reliability, professionalism and personality of our DJ (Gregg Eisel) could not have been improved upon. He played every song we wanted and clearly tailored the other selections to the age range of our guests. Talk about "know your audience" - he certainly did. We received so many compliments on our music and it was fun to see people jump up from their chairs to run to the dance floor with a "we've got to dance to this one" look. The meeting beforehand to discuss the timeline and order of events was very helpful, also. We had a marvelous reception, received so many compliments and the entire vibe of the evening was joyous celebration! Great job, Gregg!
July 11, 2015
Thank you so much for making our wedding a total blast! You helped us include so many personal touches and the dance floor was packed!! We had a wonderful time and got so many compliments about the music and song choices. Thank you for rolling with our last minute changes and for making our night unforgettable!
June 13, 2015
Gregg did an amazing job at our wedding on April 3! The dance floor was packed all night long. He played a variety of music that pleased the whole crowd. The best part was when he played piano man and got everyone to stand in a circle around my new husband and I! Overall he did a wonderful job and I would highly recommend sounds abound!

Excellent Company To Work With
Thank you so much - we had a wonderful time and received a ton of positive feedback from our attendees. The photobooth was a huge hit at our company holiday party and everyone enjoyed the DJ, Gregg.
Your staff did and excellent job and was prompt with everyone's needs. They truly conducted themselves in a professional, yet personal manner. We truly appreciate everyone's hard work.
We look forward to working with you on future events
January 10, 2015
We can't thank you enough for helping make our party a success! Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the music. Thank you very much for assisting us through the process. We were very pleased with the entertainment. You are very nice and kind, which is evident in how you treated us and our guests.
It is evident that you enjoy what you do, which seems to be more of a passion than a job.
People so enjoyed the evening that they have asked us for our play list. While we could name many of the songs, we could not remember them all. Thank you.
We hope that our paths will cross in the future.

Sounds Abound and Gregg made our Wedding Reception Perfect! They were so professional in working with our hall and making everything go smoothly throughout the night. They made sure that their announcement of all names was correct when bringing everyone in and they were involved in everything without stealing the show. They were really great at reading the crowd to know which music to play. They were great about playing our favorite songs and incorporating them into the many parts of the evening. They even worked with me to play the combo song I made for our surprise father daughter dance. Their professional attitude and knowledge of music made our evening perfect. Everyone was dancing and having a great time!

Feed back from everyone at the Reunion was "Great DJ"! "Music was great" "Greg really did a fantastic job". Hats off to Greg and Sounds Abound, you really know how to throw a party.

Greg was the DJ at my March, 2014 wedding and we were very, very happy with him. My husband and I are in our forties with five children between us, three of them teenagers. The children were allowed to invite friends to our wedding, so between relatives, friends and the children's friends we had guests of all ages. There were probably 20 teenagers, and the only time they left the dance floor the entire evening was when Greg played "Bizarre Love Triangle" which was one of my requests! It was hilarious because when the song came on all of the 35-50 year-olds were immediately on the dance floor. Anyway, it's a testament to Greg's flexibility and skill as a DJ that he was able to keep everyone happy and dancing during the entire reception. I was so busy and flustered in the weeks leading up to the wedding that I really hadn't given him much direction, but he pulled ideas from our one conversation and really hit the nail on the head. One highlight that stands out is that I'd mentioned my love of Disney movies. The first song that he played after he announced that the buffet was open was "Be Our Guest." It was a very cute, but not overdone, way to incorporate a touch of Disney. Several people commented on it. In summary, I recommend Greg without hesitation!
March 22, 2014
Gregg Eisel was fantastic. He really came through for my wedding reception because the coordinator who I had worked with was not present at the reception (personal reasons) so Gregg took control and saved the reception. He kept things running smoothly and did not do anything without my permission or consultation, it was refreshing and wonderful! There were a ton of people who stayed for the whole reception!

Thank you for all your help Gregg, we received a lot of compliments about the music and the MC. You did a great job and we can't thank you enough!

I was thrilled when my daughter and her future husband said they would use Gregg Eisel as their DJ for their wedding last Saturday. WE HAD A BLAST!! Wonderful music and fun the whole evening. I never saw the dance floor empty all night long. A great mixture of all music and fun to dance to. Gregg, thanks so much.
June 28, 2014
Sounds Abound provided the sound system for Naper Wine and Dine. It was great. No problems. Gregg came early for set up! Thanks you Sounds Abound there was one less thing for me to worry about.

Sounds Abound, and particularly, Gregg Eisel, made our sons wedding an absolute success. When we met with Gregg before the wedding we were uncertain of what direction the music should go, but in a few short minutes he tapped into the bride and groom's likes and dislikes and the event was on its way to brilliance. The wedding guests have raved about the music and fun they had at the wedding. Thank you Gregg for making the day DELIGHTFUL WITH SOUND!

There's never a bad party with Sounds Abound!
For the 4th year, Gregg Eisel has provided the a/v for the Sleep Out Saturday Rally. With a parking lot filled with over 1,000 young people, he keeps them entertained before the program and never misses a beat with the correct slide at the right time and the right music selection to keep the party going. This rally is extremely important to Bridge Communities and I wouldn't trust the night to anyone by Gregg at Sounds Abound. Thank you

Again great job and thank you very much

Excellent service on corporate event!
Gregg and his counterpart recently DJ'ed for a high end, corporate recognition event that we had downtown. They were very prepared, quick to adapt to change and ensured that everything ran very smoothly. Their creativity in music selection for the cocktail hour and distribution of awards were enjoyed by all 150+ attendees. I would highly recommend them.
October 16, 2013
The company that makes corporate events fun and your business look great!

Gregg Eisel did a fantastic job at our wedding. Through all the planning, he was great to work with and offered his time and ideas to make the day perfect. From the cermony to the end of the reception he kept everything in order. When it was time to dance our guest couldnt get enough of it. The dance floor was packed the entire night and we are still getting compliments. Thanks again for everything.
September 21, 2013
Sounds Abound Entertainment contributed immensely to the success of our Reunion with their great repertoire and presentation of danceable '50s and '60s music as well as its unique photo booth, taking us back to the days of the dime store photos. We very much appreciate their working with us early in the planning process and following up and following through without a hitch. Thanks from all of us.
September 14, 2013
Sounds Abound was a pleasure to work with! We first met with Ken Overbey several months prior to our event. He took the time to meet with us in person and answered all of our questions. From there, the office kept in regular contact with us throughout the planning process.
Closer to our big day, our fantastic DJ Gregg Eisel met with us in person for 2 hours to go over all the details. He was patient, answered all our questions, and provided great suggestions where we were unsure. He even reviewed pronounciations of our wedding party, and when the big day came, his pronounciations were perfect! Gregg did a wonderful job of catering to our "eclectic" music taste. He was great at switching up styles throughout the night to please a crowd of mixed ages & tastes. Additionally, we appreciated that he used green lighting during our first dances, which coordinated perfectly with our colors! All in all, we couldn't be more pleased with Gregg, and we're so glad we picked him.
As for the photo booth...that was a huge hit as well! The guests loved it and it definitely was a fun feature to have. The photo booth operator was upbeat & friendly and did a great job encouraging guests to take photos.
Thank you Sounds Abound for making our wedding a huge success!
August 17, 2013
The engagement period for soon to be married couples is a hectic time--there is the finding of a venue, the search for the perfect dress, the mathematics of matching the number of bridesmaids to the number of groomsmen, and not to mention how did our guest list get so big and this one day is going to cost how much!?!?
Erik and I went through all of this and more, just like every other couple. When it came to planning music for our day, we considered the preprogramed i-pod and asking a friend to spearhead the event…and I am so happy we changed our minds and met with Gregg at Sounds Abound.
Our MC, Gregg, was able to take charge and gave all of our friends a chance to enjoy our wedding. Gregg was experienced, and knew how to pace the day.
Gregg met with Erik and I at his office, listened to us, and never over sold us on a single thing. He embraced our love of movie music and hockey by making sure he had the Blackhawks goal song and buzzer noise when the boys at the Madhouse on Madison scored a goal. One of my favorite parts of the day was having movie music scores during dinner. All of our guests loved guessing what movie the music was from and was a great "icebreaker" for those seated with those who didn't know one another. Gregg had an amazing range of movie music to choose from. Anything we requested, he had.
Gregg was fantastic at communication. For example, on the day of when I wanted to change our "cake song" and "garter toss" song, Gregg didn't miss a beat. He always checked his email and cell phone.
Gregg worked at our ceremony site and at the reception. His turnaround time was impeccable.
Thank you Gregg and Sounds Abound!
June 22, 2013
Gregg, that was an awesome job! Thanks for doing a amazing job last night....lots of positive feedback and it was the best night of our life.

Gregg's expertise about music, people, and parties helped set the scene for a fabulous wedding celebration for our family and friends! We were so pleased with the planning that went into his work prior to the event. Gregg's questions really helped him get to know us, our musical tastes, and the type of celebration we wanted to have for our wedding. From start to finish, Sounds Abound did a fantastic job making sure our event was fun and memorable! We so appreciate your time and talents, Greg!
July 6, 2013
Gregg was great! He took the time to go over our music selection and to get to know us. He played custom music that we wanted. He even included the song my father wrote which made the day all the more special. A great time was had by all.

Peggy & Dan – October 6, 2012
“Overall our experience was great. Gregg even called prior to our event to ask what our color scheme was and what he wore was a perfect match! Gregg and his assistant Alex did an excellent job for us. We had a particular music choice, primarily oldies and although we couldn’t achieve that 100%, Gregg did his job well, changed it up and kept the dance floor full all night. We also received very good feedback from our guests. We had a wonderful night of music and dancing. Thank you so much Gregg!”

Diane – Boen Celebration Even t- September 16, 2012
“Just a few lines to let you know what a wonderful job Gregg did for our celebration party. He called a few days before the party and developed a general plan for the type of music that our crowd would enjoy and complement the event. He arrived in plenty of time and as soon as the first selection played people started to connect with the music. He did a great job of reading the crowd and playing requests. Everyone was so pleased and I believe many people asked for his card. I highly recommend Gregg and Sounds Abound! Thanks for helping make the event joy filled.”
Kate & Bob – September 15, 2012
“Gregg was wonderful to work with. He was very patient with us as we worked out what we wanted, and then made it happen even better than we imagined. A true professional in all aspects. We had fairly limited needs, and Gregg and Sounds Abound more than met those. Difficult for us to imagine what you could do better, you appear to have figured out how to do your business to a “T”!”
Kari – Oberweis Dairy Company Event – September 8, 2012

Lisa & Chris – August 11, 2012
“Absolutely wonderful. My DJ was Gregg and he was amazing. He was so knowledgeable, patient, flexible and just an overall joy to work with. And the music at the reception was awesome. The dance floor was packed all night with people of all ages. It was just how I had envisioned it (and Gregg worked hard to make it that way)! I have had two family members before me use Sounds Abound for their wedding reception- on both of those occasions there were two different DJ’s and both of them did a fabulous job. My wedding was no exception. I have had 3 wonderful experiences with this company and I will absolutely recommend them to everyone.”

He has a great understanding of all the music that is out there. He stayed late helping us pick out songs for very key moments during our reception.I was very happy that the office staff contacted us a few times leading up to the big day just to make sure we didnt need anything. I wish we would have recieved the same services from our other vendors as we did here. We even started telling other couples about your services before we had the chance to hear the final product.”

Brittany & Michael – November 27, 2010
“The overall Sounds Abound experience is a perfect way of wording this section because it truly was an experience all-around. From our initial meeting with a representative, meeting wtih our selected DJ, and then the night of our wedding it was treated as an overall experience-not just business leading up to the contracted event. In particular, Gregg was a great DJ. I was thrilled after our first meeting together. More surprisingly, my fiance was excited about the music as well! Gregg had suggestions for areas where we didn’t have ideas and truly listened to what we were saying. Specifically, we were open to requests but did not want him to play songs similar to any that may already have been tried unsuccessfully. His experience made us comfortable and he truly came through. Gregg took his time to work through the details with us and we choose to use his services for our ceremony as well. We had a set plan and were happy. Equally important though, we Gregg’s ability to improvise when our venue changed the timeline of events and other arrangements. He was amazing! We were happy and our guests were too. We were happy with our experience and are comfortable recommending you to friends and family.”
Katie & Derek – October 30, 2010
“Gregg truly listened to our preferences when we met before the wedding and honored those during the wedding. The dancing at the wedding was incredible – the party was going strong up until the last minute and I’ve been reliving the experience since then.”
Danielle & Tim – October 16, 2010
“Gregg. I just wanted to send you a quick email and say thanks for the amazing job you did at our wedding! Everyone said how much fun they had dancing and that we had an “awesome DJ”! I said that we knew you were awesome from a friend’s wedding (my matron of honor), so that’s why we chose you! We had people dancing that I NEVER in a million years thought would dance, so thanks for making our night one that we will never forget! ”
Kathleen & Jim – September 4, 2010
“Gregg was excellent.”
Nicole & Brian – July 31, 2010
“I knew I could expect a great experience out of Gregg and Sounds Abound at our wedding reception, but WOW! Many people have come up to me saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and I can credit a lot of that to Sounds Abound. A large number of guests stayed through the last songs. The music was a perfect mix for all generations. The dance floor was never empty. The music was fun and great to dance to. We didn’t feel like one bad song was played. Even during dinner, people mentioned how much they liked the music. I can’t thank Sound Abound enough and Gregg for making this happen. Gregg was extremely prepared. He even stepped in to take care of things for us when the Event Planner with the reception hall was no where to be found. Couldn’t have imagined it being better. Thank you for helping us make our special occasion one to remember.”
Laura & Justin – July 24, 2010

“Gregg and his son made my day so special. It was so memorable and I appreciated every part of the day. Thank you.”
SSgt Marcin & PFC Marlissa Marla (MOB) – June 19, 2010
“Gregg was super in every way. Played the music the bride and groom (my kids) had chosen and had people dancing all night. My son-in-law had asked and submitted some of his family’s favorite Polish songs and they were very pleased with the choices made. Gregg had my 91 year old mother dancing with her new grandson-in-law to a German polka and she was thrilled. I even got on the dance floor a few times (well, maybe more than a few) and enjoyed dancing to “their” music with my daughter the bride. Can’t wait to see that on the video that Roman, the Sounds Abound camera man, was filming for us. Sounds Abound took care of the evening for us and their videographer filmed the church wedding besides the reception. Piece of Cake!! I just found out right before the wedding that Sounds Abound also has their own photographers now. If they are as professional as our DJ and videographer, the important parts of the ceremony and reception will be remembered forever!”
Katherine & Mike – June 12, 2010
“We were so pleased with the job that Gregg did at our wedding reception. Once the dancing started, the dance floor was never empty! At one point my husband and I looked out on the dance floor and were amazed by how crowded it was and how much fun everyone seemed to be having. I cant tell you how many people remarked on what a fun wedding it was. I know that so much of that is due to the skill of the DJ. Thank you also to the staff person operating the photo booth. Our guests were thrilled with the booth and had an amazing time using it. The young man working the booth was very personable and kind. I appreciate all of his assistance and willingness to “roll” with our crazy guests. My husband and I are very pleased and appreciative of the work that your company did and how well our reception turned out. Thank you!”
Kathy & Erik – May 15, 2010
“Gregg was excellent.”
Nicole & Matthew – April 17, 2010

Thank you Sounds Abound for helping to make the day a memorable one!!!! I will definitely be recommending Sounds Abounds to all future brides and grooms I encounter.”
Brooke & Jake – February 27, 2010
“We loved Gregg and thought he was so easy to work with and provided my husband and I as well as our guests, with a fantastic night of music! His selections were exactly what we talked about and we had many comments that he was the best DJ people had ever heard at a wedding. He exceed our expectations and I couldn’t have been happier with the how things went that night! We also loved the photo booth that we had from your company, our guests loved it so much! We had a blast with the photo booth and love the guest book that we got as well. Everything having to do with Sounds Abound and our wedding was perfect! Thank you so much for helping make my wedding the perfect night!”

We recieved so many compliments from our guests (and even the staff at the hall) about the excellent music and how much fun the party was. He kept everyone (even my reluctant groom) on the dance floor the whole night! Even with the diverse ages present, everyone enjoyed themselves. My great aunt was boogying, and the teenage cousins were kept well entertained as well! Greg checked in with us throughout the night to make sure that everything was to our liking and that we were satisfied. Thank you for keeping the party rolling all the way through!”

Your company was professional and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!!”
Veronica & Tom – August 22, 2009
“Gregg absolutly made the night. He was friendly & professional. Music selection was tremendous. Since the wedding, we’ve received more compliments about the music than any other element of the evening. He took a very genuine interest in our music styles & preferences, and incorporated them very artfully throughout the night. Overall, Sounds Abound was a perfect choice for our wedding.”

“From the moment we checked out the Sounds Abound DJ page, I knew that I wanted Gregg! It was clear from his video that he had energy, creativity, and the overall ‘look’ of what I wanted at my wedding. As soon as we met with him in person, we knew we had met the perfect DJ! Gregg instantly picked up on mine and Matt’s sense of humor, and offered amazing suggestions, while still catering to our music selections. Everyone at the wedding said how impressed they were with Gregg. He truly went above and beyond anything we ever could have hoped for! I am so glad we chose Gregg!”

Alyssa & Joe – May 30, 2009
“Gregg was exceptional! Any request we had, he made sure it was met. He handled a mixup with the intros (to no fault of his own) seamlessly. If we asked for something he didn’t think would work, he found a way to make it work. At the same time, we hardly knew they were there. Couldn’t have asked for more..thank you.”
Aubrey & Carl – May 23, 2009
“Gregg and the entire Sounds Abound staff were extremely helpful! We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ! (Gregg) made everything run so smoothly and took so much pressure off of us. The song selections were also perfect. We have had so many people tell us how much fun they had at our wedding and how great our DJ was. I spent the entire night on the dance floor and that’s exactly what I wanted. Thanks again for helping make our day so perfect! We will definitely recommend Sounds Abound to people who are in need of DJ services in the future. We also thought the wedding shop was great! We bought just about all of our wedding accessories there and it was so nice to find them all in one shop that had such a great selection of items. Both the Sounds Abound DJ service and the wedding shop played an integral part in making our wedding a huge success!”
Jo Anne – MOB, William & Melissa – April 18, 2009
“I just wanted to thank you for the excellent service Gregg provided for my daughters wedding on Saturday. Everyone had a wonderful time and the music & entertainment provided by your company made the wedding a huge success.”
Cindy , McDonald’s Corporation – December 6, 2008
“We had a lot going on at this party. Gregg needed to handle our multimedia dinner show, including a slide show, and a “public service” announcement via DVD video clip and sound. He also had to make sure we had a grand entrance song for walking into dinner (Mardi Gras theme), and dinner music. Then, he had to work with some of my other team members to manage our Karaoke portion of the night. I think we only got to dance for an hour because everyone was having so much fun with the Karaoke! Gregg took care of all of this without a hitch. He was fun to work with, easy to communicate with, highly professional, and I relied heavily on his expertise. He was able to get all of the different means of entertainment – and the technical challenges that go along with that – going on time and just the way we asked for it. His announcements were always accurate and delivered in an energetic way. Believe me, we’ve had other DJs before who couldn’t even get that straight (of course, not from Sounds Abound). I’m sure he must have been exhausted afterwards, and I didn’t get a chance to say good-bye and thank him after the party. He was GREAT, and I would request him again for any other event requiring a DJ. I relied on Sounds Abound to choose our DJ and you made an outstanding choice. Thanks for helping make our event a success!”
Sara & Nick – October 25, 2008
“Fantastic! Many thanks to Gregg for being an incredible DJ and for being so patient with us on all our music choices.”
Deanna & Seth – August 23, 2008

Gregg did an amazing job keeping everyone on the dance floor all night long. He did an excellent job mixing the songs and complementing his selections with the list of songs that we provided him.”
Cynthia & Alan – August 15, 2008
“Gregg was awesome!! Great to work with – I felt like I really clicked with him and would recommend him to anyone!”
Jen & Joseph – July 26, 2008
“From the moment I called Sounds Abound I have been impressed. The staff was amazing on the initial phone call and provided all of the options for me with great clarity. It was a great experience and the staff was always great when I called with any questions or changes. We loved looking at the DJ options with their videos. My fiance and I LOVED the online planner. The music selection was expansive and covered both of our musical tastes! We could even pay online! Also, we decided to get our Invitatiions and many of our wedding accessories through Sounds Abound. The Invitation process was incredible and I was so happy with the results and choices they provided! At the reception our DJ Gregg was an incredible DJ! He had all of the timing of the night down perfect and met all of my requests. Gregg was calm, professional, and enthusiastic about music and the wedding. He helped me brainstorm songs in our pre-meeting and then was extemely accomodating with some “at the moment” changes during the reception. He took all requests from a range of guests too! My wedding guests were RAVING about the music played and the dance floor was packed! It was a perfect night!”
Dana & Dan – July 12, 2008

“Gregg did an amazing job. We had multiple people comment on how wonderful of a job he did. Even our photgrapher wrote a blog on his website how he loved the music selection that Gregg put together and put his name on the website…and he has been to a lot of weddings. Thank you so much for making it such a wonderful evening for us. Everyone from the time we booked, to ordering the invitations and planning the song selections were just wonderful to work with. Thanks again!”
Christie & Adam – September 8, 2007
“Gregg was amazing from the beginning. I had emailed Sounds Abound when we were just starting to look for a DJ. Gregg called me back and was very good at following up and working with our hectic schedules to set up appointments. As soon as we met with him, we knew we wanted him to be the DJ for our big day. And we were very pleased with our decision. Gregg was awesome! He was very accommodating to our last minute changes!! Everything flowed very well all night, and the dance floor was full. There were people out there dancing who I haven’t seen dance in years!! It was so much fun! Everyone had a blast! We will definitly use Sounds Abound, and hopefully Gregg next time we need a DJ!! Music is such an important part of the night, and you really helped make our day special! Thanks for everything!!”
Sarah & James – August 18, 2007
“Our DJ, Gregg was very helpful through the music planning process, he called us a few days before to make sure he had the correct music for everything. He arrived on time and stayed in contact with us throughout the night for the important parts of the evening like the introductions, first dance and more.”
Jana & James – August 11, 2007
“We were so pleased with everything Sounds Abound had to offer. Gregg was great! He played all the types of music that we wanted the entire night. I can honestly say that I danced to EVERY song! The office staff was also very helpful. I saw an item in the store that I wanted to purchase at a later time but it wasn’t online. I called them up and they found it for me based on my description and had it waiting for me to pick up the next day. It was very convenient. I will definitely recommend Sounds Abound to all my friends.”
Ashley & David – June 23, 2007
“Everything was better than we expected! Tons of compliments on Gregg! Awesome job! Dance floor wasn’t empty once! Everything was excellent! Our family is still talking about the wonderful job you did…my sister-in-law is actually getting married in October of 2008 and she plans on using you!”
Bonnie & Jim – May 12, 2007
“Gregg was really great at walking us through the planning process. During our event he was willing and able to adjust to last minute changes.”
Jennifer & Dominic – February 24, 2007
“Our overall experience was excellent! Gregg Eisel did an outstanding job. So many of our guests made a point to mention how great he was with the crowd. On a personal level, we truly appreciated how much effort he put into understainding exactly what king of music my fiance (now husband) and I enjoy, yet he balanced it well with what the crowd was reacting to during the reception. It was sucha a nice feeling knowing that my guests were having a ball on the dance floor – I don’t remember a time during the night that the dance floor wasn’t full – that speaks volumes about the great job Gregg did. Thanks for playing such a large part in making the reception a huge success!”
Danielle & Jim – November 25, 2006
“Our wedding was exactly what we wanted–thank you to Gregg Eisel and his son for all their hard work!!”
Lisa & Matt – October 28, 2006
“Gregg. Thank you so much for making our wedding fun for everyone. We really appreciate all your work beforehand finding all the music. Also, all your work during the wedding kept people dancing and mingling the entire night! If you ever need recommendations please feel free to use our name and contact information. Until then we will be sure to recommend Sounds Abound and more specifically you!”
Christine & Brian – October 21, 2006
“We got exactly what we wanted from an entertainment aspect, and then some. Gregg was awesome. He kept the party moving, and everyone excited about being there. I really can’t say enough about how critical he was to the reception being everything that is was. I will always remember what a fantastic job he did. And I will be forever grateful.”
Kathy & Brian – September 23, 2006
“We are sorry that we left our wedding without saying thank you to you. What can we say? We just had such a great time dancing to the fabulous music you played that we just forgot. Thanks for making it such a great party. Everyone said the music was totally danceable and fun. You did a terrific job and we will recommend you to our engaged freinds.”
Jennifer & Scott – September 16, 2006
“Gregg is the best!!!! he made our DJ planning not only easy, but also fun :-)”
Amy & Robert – August 19, 2006
“Gregg did a fantastic job for us. We had a small-ish wedding with a lot of non-dancing types, but he really engaged our guests, and got people out on the floor I never would have guessed would EVER dance. He played exactly the type of music we wanted the entire evening! He also kept the volume at a great level so our non-dancing guests could converse even during the dancing. I received tons of compliments on the DJ service from our wedding guests, that night and for days afterward. Thanks, Gregg, for making our evening so fantastic!”
Michelle & Mike -May 5, 2006
“Gregg was great. He went with the attitude of the crowd all night! He also was great with my last minute changes!”
Carrie & Pete – November 5, 2005
“From my first phone call, your company’s Customer Service was top notch. I left a VERY detailed message on a Sunday night and your associate called the next morning and answered every question in a voicemail and said he would follow up in a week if he did not hear from me. No pressure. I did appreciate that! We spoke and booked later that day. We chose Gregg for our DJ by using the information provided on the site. It was a good match for our wedding reception. We came to your office once to listen to music, even thought you are located over an hour away. That was very helpful. We provided a carefully selected list of songs. Gregg called the week of the wedding and we went over all of the details, down to the Do Not Play List. He respected my two Do Not Plays, even though one was requested, twice! The reception went very well. All announcements were professional, yet upbeat. He stayed within the perameters of songs we chose. The dance floor was busy all night! We felt the music was a very important part of the reception, it could make it or break it. A great time was had by all, most importantly, the bride and groom. We had a blast! We would gladly recommend Sounds Abound!”
Laura & Dave – October 15, 2005
“From the very first moment, Sounds Abound and Gregg took great care of us. I recommed you to everyone because with Sounds Abound you’ll get what you want and will be 100% satisfied with your event.”
Jeanette & Chuck -August 26, 2005
“Gregg made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. We loved his attitude and his level of interaction with us and our guests. We recieved many compliments. Don’t change a thing!!”
Katie & Shaun – July 29, 2006
“Gregg. Thank you so much for helping to make our special day enjoyable. You did a fantastic job in playing all different types of music. There wasn’t a song we were disappointed with. In all the weddings we’ve been to, we’ve never seen the dance floor packed from the first song until the last song as it was at ours. We had a lot of compliments about how great you were. We would definitely recommend you to our family and friends.”
Barb & John -June 11, 2005

Christine & Doug -October 2, 2004
“Our guests had a great time. A few took Gregg’s card for future events. The dance floor was full all night. Most guests stayed until he packed up to go. We could not have been happier with our DJ and JoAnn’s help whenever we went into the office.”
Lara & Shane – September 25, 2004
“We were both extremely happy with Gregg’s work. He handled the role we requested perfectly. We asked for minimal extra activities but then requested some activities. Gregg was willing and able to handle all of our last minute requests.”
