Keith Talaga

Sounds Abound DJ and Master of Ceremonies

Keith's Bio

My talent for DJing was only achieved by my passion for it.

Hello! My name is Keith Talaga. I came to Sounds Abound in 2005, but my career dates back to 1994. Along with DJing weddings, my journey has taken me into nightclubs. I have performed in clubs from the southwest suburbs throughout the Chicagoland area. My experiences have taught me that DJing is not just about music. It’s about people.

What brought me to Sounds Abound is the philosophy “Your event is about you!” I believe in that. I feel that the most important skills for a DJ include versatility and using past experiences to help mold the event to fit the customers needs. I want to help you make your event run as smooth as possible so you can enjoy the moment as well as the company of your friends and family.

What Clients Say About Keith

Keith was AMAZING!

We learned about Keith through my husbands coworker, who said he kept the party going at his wedding. Keith made EVERYTHING so easy, leading up to the day and day of. I utilized the event planner that Sounds Abound offers which made the whole thing even easier with regards to the names of everyone in our wedding party and any special dances/speeches that we had. We ended up making a Spotify playlist and sending that to Keith and he absolutely CRUSHED It! He played the songs we had as must plays and didn’t play anything we didn’t like, he transitioned each song smoothly and played everything at the perfect time. Keith made It clear we could make any changes that we wanted at any point in time and was so easy and flexible to work with. Tony was also there helping Keith and he was so sweet and took so many great pictures/videos of the night! We could not recommend Sounds Abound, Keith and Tony more and have already told everyone there who they were for future events!

Great Job Mixing Music!

We had an incredible experience with Keith Talaga (Sounds Abound DJ) as the DJ for our wedding. He did such a great job mixing the music we put on our playlists. We got so many compliments all night and in the days following our wedding on how great our DJ was. The dance floor was full literally the entire night and everyone was exhausted by the end of the night. I would 100% recommend Sounds Abound and Keith as a wedding DJ!!

Keith did not Disappoint!

We were in need of a DJ for our wedding and Sounds Abound was referred to us by multiple people & several of our vendors. So, it was a no brainer! We ended up choosing Keith as our DJ and we made it very clear from the start that great dance music and a sense of humor was a must – and he did not disappoint! Keith was very easy to work with and he gave us awesome recommendations / suggestions to ensure both the ceremony & reception flowed smoothly and were a good time. Let’s just say that by the end of the night, almost everyone came up to me and said that it was one of the best weddings they’ve been to because of the awesome music selection. With that being said, I highly recommend Keith and the Sounds Abound team!

On TOP of Everything!

We recently got married and our DJ Keith was absolutely wonderful! He was so on top of everything and knew exactly what to say and do! It was the party of a lifetime. I sent him a Spotify playlist and he went with it and he had everyone out on the dance floor. He played our favorite party song “Mo Bamba” and everyone still talks about it. 12/10 recommend Keith for your wedding or event!

Sally & Sam

Dance Floor was PACKED!

We had Keith Talaga as our wedding DJ this past weekend. He was so easy to work with and was able to play a lot of songs we had that weren’t initially on the Sounds Abounds website. I was a bit of a diva on the day of and wanted things to move quickly and he kept us on schedule and had great suggestions for the reception timeline. Our dance floor was PACKED from beginning to end and we received a lot of compliments on how amazing he was. I would definitely recommend him and the company Sounds Abounds for any event.

DJ Keith was AMAZING!

We used sounds about for my sister’s wedding and loved working with them so much we booked them for my wedding! They are so easy to work with and make the entire planning process so simple! They were in contact with us multiple times within the months leading up to our big day and worked directly with our venue coordinator to get the timeline for the day! Their online planning portal also makes it so simple to choose music for the reception! Our DJ, Keith, was AMAZING! There was never a point during the evening when the dance floor was empty. By the end of the night our friends nicknamed him “Pitbull” and we had so many compliments from our guests on the music. If you want to have a full dance floor all night, Sounds Abound is the way to go!

Rachael & Troy

Everything was GREAT

When we started looking for a DJ, we checked out a number of places and their websites. What we really liked about Sounds Abound was that they were the only website we saw that had footage of their DJ’s. We got to see how they interacted with the crowds and the bride and groom, how they introduced the wedding party, and their personality. The whole Sounds Abound team was very accessible and were all so very helpful. We ended up choosing Keith as our DJ, and did not regret it. He brought creative ideas with our Oscars wedding theme. The music selection he chose went perfect with everything we suggested and captured our taste of music with great flow. The venue that we used even requested their information to use for future events. We also had a photobooth and the attendant was great with helping people use the photobooth. Everything worked great and we had such a great time with Sounds Abound. Would recommend Sounds Abound hands down.

We hired Keith from Sounds Abound to DJ our wedding, and he was phenomenal! He was more than willing to help us and answer any questions we had about music leading up to our wedding (and we had a lot more questions than we anticipated having!). Not only did he play great music during dinner, but he read the crowd perfectly during dancing and did an amazing job at keeping everyone engaged throughout the night. Multiple guests commented on how amazing he was. We highly recommend him!

Super Happy & Highly Recommend

Keith Talaga was amazing! He was so attentive to me and making sure I was happy throughout the night. Very organized and great personality.

Dance Party Never Stopped

Our DJ was Keith Talaga and I can’t say enough good things. Great contact before the wedding and during the reception. He got the wedding party (which was large) organized for the entrance and kept everything moving ahead of schedule. The dance party never stopped once the dance floor opened. People gave us so many compliments on our DJ team and my brother in law even got Keith’s info from me in order to book him for his wedding in June! Thank you Keith and Sounds Abound!

Ashley & Kevin

An Amazing Job!

Keith Talaga was the DJ for our wedding this Saturday and he did an amazing job! We kept getting compliments about how amazing he was throughout the night and I couldn’t have asked for a better night. He was easy to work with and very helpful when we had questions. He made sure he knew how to pronounce everyone’s name in the wedding party and also was very flexible for on the fly changes that always happen during weddings. I would recommend him to anyone who was looking for a DJ for their event.

Sara & Jeremy


We went with Sounds Abound for our wedding and could not be happier with our choice! We had Keith as our DJ and he did a fantastic job! The dance floor was filled the entire night! We also got compliments from our photographers that Keith was extremely accommodating and made sure to communicate with the other vendors before announcing anything so that everything could be captured on camera. Before the wedding, we utilized the online planner and that was extremely helpful. It allowed Keith to know what type of music we wanted and ensured that certain songs were played. The entire experience with Sounds Abound, especially Keith, was excellent! I would definitely recommend them!

We got so many compliments on the music and it far exceeded our expectations.
