My name is Kyle Overbey. Not only do I have a great knowledge for the newer songs that are out there, but people twice my age are astounded at my knowledge of the classics. I was born into Sounds Abound and have been around it my entire life. I started working as a DJ assistant for the first time when I was 13 years old. I’ve spent a lot of time working with most of the DJs on the Sounds Abound staff, learning and creating my own unique style.
Being around the business for as long as I can remember has taught me many valuable things about the entertainment service business. I realize that your party is about you! Just like the tag line of Sounds Abound says, “If you love the Chicken Dance, we love it. If you hate it, we hate it!” I will go out of my way to ensure that your party is the way you want it to be.
To me there is no greater reward than seeing the joy on peoples faces after they have experienced a special night. Creating that joy is my passion.
My easy-going personality, experience, musical knowledge, and a passion for what I do makes me a great choice for any event. If that is what you are looking for, then I would love to help make your party a night to remember!
What Clients Say About Kyle
We hired them for our wedding of about 170 people and they were amazing. Our wedding was in May and we still have people telling us how great our DJ was. Kyle played the best music and our dance floor was packed from the very first song until the very last song. We also used their open air photo booth and it was so worth it! All of our guests loved it and it was a great keepsake for us when we received the copies of all of the pictures of our guests. The website was super user friendly and we were able to very easily compile a list of songs that we wanted played and did not want played. We would definitely hire them again!

Kyle recently DJ'd our wedding ceremony and reception. We couldn't have asked for a better music option. He was not only a great DJ, but also went above and beyond throughout the night. He continually checked in with us to see if he could help with anything, not just the music. He helped make our "Big Day" a success!
June 22, 2019
Kyle and the Sounds Abound team helped make our wedding experience more amazing and memorable than we ever could have imagined or hoped for. Kyle was very professional and helpful from the very first time we met with him. Kyle was able to offer advice and suggestions while also listening and incorporating our vision. Our family and friends wont stop talking about how great the music was for the mood. He had everyone dancing until the venue kicked us out! Our special day would not be possible without Sounds Abound Entertainment.

KYLE you were one of the BEST decisions we made at our wedding. I’ve never seen that many people on a dance floor at one time (including 7 guys ripping their pants during cotton eye joe/every time we touch) and have been getting endless texts about how iconic the dance floor was at our wedding!! From every age, the floor was consistently PACKED for hours to the point that to say hi to guests we had to hit up the middle of the dance floor. You knew how to take our requests and easily fit in similar songs to get the party going. You also knew the perfect sit and eat your dinner tunes. Thanks for making our wedding one I’ll never forget.
June 1, 2019
We had Kyle and he was great!! Everything was perfect and went very smoothly. The dance floor was packed all night!
May 10, 2019
I’m still in shock by how awesome these guys were. Kyle had people on the dance floor the entire night and it never died. He was on top of all the special dances, announcements, dedications, you name it. Would hire him all over again if I could. Thank you so much for one hell of a night!

Kyle is an AMAZING DJ! For our wedding he had the dance floor bumping all night long with his assistant Riz. Kyle did an awesome job at reading the crowd and knowing what songs to play. You can tell he truly enjoys his job and likes to see the whole wedding party happy. You can also tell how experienced he is- he is extremely professional and knows how to get the party started. Kyle met with us a week before our wedding to go over all details and make sure we were on the same page.He also helped with coming up for the timeline for speeches and dances which was extremely helpful. He did awesome with introductions and gave our wedding the feel we were looking for. Throughout the wedding planning process he always was prompt when responding to emails. Also, Kyle changed the uplighting to match the dancing vibes which was a nice touch. If you are looking for a fun, dance floor packed, and lively wedding then DJ Kyle is who you need!! We will be recommending him to all friends and family.

Our experience with Sounds Abound was amazing from start to finish! We had Kyle as our DJ and he was awesome! He was great during the planning process and answered all of our questions. He checked in with us throughout the night to make sure we were happy, and he was really good at reading the mood of the room! I have gotten a lot of complements on the music and DJ. We are very happy we used Sounds Abound and would do it all over again!
January 5, 2019
We had Kyle as our DJ and he was amazing. Not only did he answer our many emails and phone calls, he also made sure we were doing ok during the wedding itself. The music selection was amazing and the song transitions were done in a way that made a lot of sense. I would recommend Sounds Abounds and Kyle to anyone that asks.
December 15, 2018
Sounds Abound (Kyle) had the whole party dancing the entire night. He was incredible and people could not stop telling us how good they were. I would recommend Kyle to anyone, he was able to read the room and play the right music.

Warehouse Wedding Dance Party
We recently celebrated our wedding at Warehouse 109 and Our Dj Kyle brought the house down ! Right from the beginning sounds abound was great to work with and we choose Kyle for our big day ! He was so easy to work with , he was excited for our music choices and so helpful ! We had a smaller sized wedding and he read the vibe and totAlly had everyone in a great party mood ! I have such a blast ! Thank you so much Kyle for being apart of it !

We got married in December and had Kyle Overbey as our DJ. We weren't sure how our guests would do on the dance floor, but wow were we shocked! Kyle had the floor packed all night! We gave him a limited playlist as we knew that he knows what works more than we do. He had people I never would have expected on the dance floor! He was a great MC and really kept the party going! When our wedding ended at midnight, we estimated that we still had 60-70 people on the dance floor. We could have kept the party going for a lot longer!
He worked with some mysterious members of our bridal party to play a traditional song that ended our high school dances and was able to get everyone to participate. It was simply amazing and so meaningful for us!
We had a brunch at our house the next day, and guests couldn't stop talking about how great the music was. They commented that they've been to weddings in the past that only play the latest hits that many of the middle aged and older guests don't recognize. Kyle played songs that everyone would know. When he played "Shout", people absolutely swarmed the dance floor. It was so memorable.
Pricing is very affordable for the quality of the work. We would strongly suggest everyone use Sounds Abound. Judging from all the reviews, we doubt you can go wrong with any of the DJs, but we have to recommend Kyle as he was a huge reason our reception was such a success.
December 29, 2017
We got married in the beginning of February and we had Kyle Overbey as our DJ. We wanted to make sure that there was a good mix of new and old music for all of our wedding guests. Kyle KILLED IT! Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night. He played such a good mixture of music and made sure not to play any on my do not playlist. There were guests on the dance floor that we never imagined dancing! Our wedding ended at midnight with the song "Friends in Low Places" and I couldn't believe how many people were still on the dance floor. We also had a photo booth from sounds abound. Every time we went back by the photo booth there were always people in it. It was a huge hit, especially with all of the fun props. The next day, we went to lunch with our friends and family and everyone could not stop talking about how great the music and photo booth were. Kyle and his team were amazing and made our wedding reception a success!!

Allison said... Everything was perfect! Kyle was an amazing MC and played the music we liked (along with requests). He kept everybody dancing all night! He also provided sound for our ceremony which was a last minute emergency after our other sound person fell through, so we couldn't be happier for his help and the fantastic service!
July 21, 2018
Kyle, I know this is delayed but I wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for DJing our wedding last year. Everyone commented on how fun the wedding was and that was because you played the best music! Thank you so much! It was the best day of our lives and we danced the whole night thanks to you!
July 15, 2017
Kyle was our dj for our 4/27 wedding. We used Kyle because he was the dj for my sisters wedding in 2016 and he was great. He didn’t disappoint for our wedding either! We loved the online planner for choosing our must play songs. My husband is Greek and he gave Kyle a list of the Greek music he wanted played and Kyle was understanding with this too. On the day of, the weather started off perfect so we were doing an outdoor ceremony. The weather turned bad and started raining as everyone started walking down the aisle. We stopped everything and brought it indoors and Kyle and his assistant were so quick to take apart the equipment and set it up again, which was so very appreciated. We had a great experience and would definitely recommend Sounds Abound!
A little late, Kyle was the DJ for our wedding at Makray Memorial Golf Club in Barrington on October 20th, 2017. From the very beginning it was a pleasure working with Kyle. He tailored our playlist to us and was perfect at keeping in contact throughout the whole process. Our guests constantly raved about the music, the flow of things, and how Kyle got the crowd going all the time. We loved the music he chose for us as well as how he tied everything together to make it a wonderful and magical day. Thank you Kyle!!!

Kyle was our DJ for our wedding on 9/30/17 and he was fantastic! He kept everyone moving through the announcements and dinner, and even when I suggested that the guests had to sing to have my husband and I kiss (instead of the traditional clinking glasses) and we had not talked with Kyle about that before, he took it in stride and promptly announced it to the guests. The dance floor was never empty the entire night and he played all of the songs my husband and I requested beforehand. Everyone said our wedding was lots of fun and that they loved the music. Thanks Kyle!
September 30, 2017
I wanted to take a minute and thank you and all of your staff for such a phenomenal experience at our wedding on September 16. The variety of music had everyone on the dance floor at some point! We appreciated the rapid response times with any questions we had through the process and the organized website and worksheet that allows our event to be such a success! We had the time of our lives celebrating and dancing our night away!
September 16, 2017
Dear Kyle, Thanks for killin' it with your DJ skillz at our wedding! The dance floor was packed the whole night and everyone had a blast! You're the best!
August 12, 2017
We are SO happy and relieved that we went with Sounds Abound for our wedding DJ and uplighting. Kyle Overbey was our DJ and did a FANTASTIC job, and so did his assistant. All of our guests loved the music and they kept the party going until the end (seriously, no one was leaving). The uplighting was perfect and illuminated our reception beautifully 🙂
September 2, 2017
The very first meeting we had with Kyle sold us, we picked him as our DJ on the spot. We explained what we were looking for and the types of music we would like to have played at our wedding and he was already tossing ideas of playlists he had in mind. We were looking for an exceptional DJ and that is what we got when we picked Kyle. His professionalism and ability to adapt and improvise gave us one less thing to worry about on our big day. He was able to grab the attention from all 230 plus people in the room and make important announcements heard very easily. He kept the dance floor packed all night incorporating our requests along with his surefire playlists. He was very accommodating with requests from guests and most importantly kept us (bride and groom) in mind with every song. I even threw in a request that he announce an inside joke from the bachelor party at the end of the night and it was an absolute hit. Overall, Kyle and the entire group at Sounds Abound helped make our wedding a day we will never forget! Thanks Guys!

Best DJ ever
Our wedding was just a week ago and we wish we could do it all over again! A lot of that was because of Kyle. He was the best DJ we could have ever asked for. He listened to us, knew exactly what we were looking for, took our special requests and just ran with it. The dance floor never got empty at all that night, and we are so happy about that. Thank you so much again, Kyle!! We really appreciate all you did to make our special day so unbelievably wonderful!!

Book Kyle Now!
We had Kyle Overbey as our wedding DJ, and it was the best decision we could have made. He was an amazing MC and an even better DJ. He was great to work with prepping for the wedding. He had many great suggestions and was great at communicating when we had a question.
As for the reception, the dance floor was full the entire time. Numerous people came to us during or after the wedding and commented how great of a job the DJ did with his song selections. There were also many comments on how nobody had ever seen a dance floor that full for that long. Our wedding coordinator actually asked us for his card the day after the wedding to contact him because she was so impressed.
My wife and I truly feel that Kyle helped make our wedding even more memorable than we expected. We both can't recommend Kyle enough for any of your DJ needs. If you are looking for someone who is knowledgeable, outgoing and can keep the dance floor going all night, stop looking and contact Kyle now!

I've hired Sounds Abound a few times and they do the best job! Contract set up is no fuss. I relay want we want/expect and they deliver. I highly recommend Kyle.
Katie said... Sounds abound were phenomenal!!! They were very accommodating and worked with my crazy schedule. They were so professional! We had Kyle, and I'm so glad! He knew how to read the room and keep our crazy group on the dance floor! He heard the speeches from our party and even incorperated music from that! He was so great to work with and he made sure we got everything we needed and that we were ok and made sure everything ran smoothly! Thank you so much Kyle and Sounds Abound!!! Will definitely be telling our friends! By the end of the night we already had people asking who we used!
February 17, 2017
From the moment we met Kyle we knew he was a perfect fit for our wedding! Kyle went through our reception timeline and comforted us with his knowledge in music. He listened to all of our requests and kept the dance floor going all night! Our wedding reception was perfect thanks to Kyle! We will reccommend him and Sounds Abound to all of our family and friends!
February 11, 2017
Sarah said... We LOVED them. We had DJ Kyle Overbey and he was fantastic. I can't remember what his assistant's name was... Fun, kept the party moving, and not at all corny (that was one of my main concerns with having a DJ haha). We submitted a song list ahead of time of songs we love and songs we did not want played. He did exactly what we hoped for - a perfect combination of oldies, fun new songs, 90s classics, etc. - but with no bad language or bootie songs or anything like that (I mean come on, my grandma doesn't want to hear that!) We also submitted a few special requests, like reminding people to take centerpieces home, having an anniversary bouquet given out, etc. and he did every single thing perfectly. He was also flexible and good at adjusting when the timing of certain things was off (like our pictures taking longer than expected). I don't think I left the dance floor once! We loved working with Kyle and Sounds Abound and would highly recommend them!
November 26, 2016
Kyle was our DJ for our wedding the last weekend. We had SO many compliments on our music selections/DJ. Kyle kept our guests dancing throughout the entire night!! (We had a mid-dinner breakout dance party! We had to ask people to sit down to finish the dinner because people just did not want to stop dancing!!) We were absolutely thrilled with our music. Our wedding was so much fun because Kyle did such a fantastic job!!! We highly recommend!!!
December 23, 2016
Dear Kyle Thank you so much for all of your help with our wedding. You really did a great jot of keeping the dance floor full all night. Piano Man at the end of the night was such a special moment for everyone. We received so many compliments and wanted to thank you for that. We will be sure to recommend you to others in the future!

Great experience, professional staff!
We got married 1 week ago today. We were in contact with Sounds Abound and our DJ, Kyle Overbey for over a year. I am a person that tends to read testimonials and brush them off. If you want a great company to work with, I promise you this is it. Their website is incredible, you are able to have a must play list of 20 songs and a do not play list and our DJ Kyle followed it to a T. He even approached us when a song on our do not play list was requested to get the yay or nay on it (we ended up playing it) but it was just the small stuff like that and our dance floor was full the entire night. He knew when to play the requested songs, he knew to hold off on the newer younger party songs til later in the night, everything was just very smooth and very impressive. The guy absolutely crushed it and made our night incredible. Going into a wedding and planning everyone I know stresses over the DJ and whether or not your "crew" will enjoy it and actually dance- I promise you that this is the company to go with and Kyle is your guy. A great experience and our friends and family told us all week they had 0 complaints about songs and it just made the night that much more special. His assistants and the photobooth crew did an excellent job as well!
November 25, 2016
While, I didn't have many dancing machines at my wedding, it didn't matter my DJ Kyle kept the energy and the atmosphere going more than anything. We were ahead of schedule on so many things it was hard to believe that ended so quickly.
Thanks for the fantastic job!
October 22, 2016
We worked with Sounds Abound for our wedding and could not have had a more positive experience!!
Prior to the wedding, we has a Skype session with our DJ Kyle to go over the entire nights events, our wants and expectations, and of course music selections. Kyle gave us a play by play for what we could expect and when. It was so nice to be prepared and know when exactly we would need to be around for the cake cutting, bouquet toss, etc. This way it was very organized and everything just ran smoothly. We never felt rushed and could just enjoy every moment.
Kyle and his assistant showed up early the day of the wedding and knew precisely where to set up at the venue. It was such a relief not to have to worry about a thing! The uplighting we chose was so beautiful in our reception room. Kyle also kept everyone out on the dance floor and having a great time! From start to finish the floor constantly had our guests up and dancing. I really could not have asked for a better experience for our special day!
I would HIGHLY recommend DJ Kyle for anyone's event!

Private User said... Our DJ, Kyle O, was incredible! He fulfilled every request we had and was so wonderful to work with. Our dance floor was packed the entire night, and we would recommend him to anyone in a heart beat!
Sounds Abound was a perfect company to work with for all of our wedding entertainment. Not only was every member of their team easy to work with and always available to answer questions, the services they provided were outstanding!
Kyle was our DJ and there aren't enough words to describe how incredible he was! Our dance floor was packed from start to finish, and every request we had, he fulfilled. The online planning system was a great way for us to give Kyle the vibe we wanted for our party, and he absolutely nailed it come wedding day! We have gotten endless compliments about how we had the best DJ our guests have ever experienced!
We also utilized the uplighting and photobooth services, and both were just as perfect as everything else! Highly recommend this company!

The absolute best!
I knew when we attended a wedding Kyle was djing for in April of 2014 that I wanted him to DJ my wedding reception. We had Kyle DJ our August 2016 wedding reception and it was the best decision ever! Kyle was so super easy to work with throughout our wedding planning. He made sure from day one that this day was all about us. On our wedding day he assured my husband and I were having a great time all night. We asked Kyle for one thing and one thing only - and that was to keep our guests on the dance floor all night and he SURE DID! The dance floor was never even close to empty! We didn't have to worry about a single thing working with Kyle. No question, if you want to have the absolute best time at your wedding, choose Sounds Abound!! We'd choose them every single time!!!
August 20, 2016
When I was looking around for a DJ for my wedding I stumbled across Sounds Abound by chance. I am very glad that happened.
When we had our initial visit with Sounds Abound we met with Kyle Overbey. We were immediately impressed by how informative he was. We could tell he was a "pro". Sounds Abound has videos of their DJs on the website. You can watch the videos and get a feel for how the DJs work. We watched them all. We decided to go with Kyle Overbey based on our meeting and the video on the website. Luckily for us he was available for our date. Kyle was very easy to get a hold of and responded to any questions in a timely manner. He met with us a few times to get things exactly how we wanted them to be.
We booked the DJ for the ceremony and reception. Kyle was on point for the ceremony. All the music was exactly as we discussed. Sounds Abound provided a microphone for the officiant as well. Kyle did a great job with introductions at the rehearsal. Throughout the reception he was great. He played the music that was requested. If something was playing that cleared the dance floor he would cut to a better song. He interacted well with the guests. We received positive feedback from our guests that Kyle was very good.
Sounds Abound provides two DJs. The main DJ and an assistant. What a great idea.
We also booked the large photo booth for the wedding as well. The photo booth attendant was great. Sounds Abound provides two copies of the pictures. It's up to the bride and groom if both copies go to the guest or if a hard copy goes to the bride and groom. Sounds Abound provides a USB flash drive with digital copies of the photo booth pictures.
I would suggest Sounds Abound to anybody getting married or in need of a DJ or photo booth for any occasion. I'm sure all of the DJs are great, but if you have your choice. Go with Kyle Overbey. You won't regret it.
August 13, 2016
Loved loved loved working with Sounds Abound and Kyle! From the first meeting they were great about going over every detail with us. We made adjustment by adding and eliminating things we wanted throughout the process and it was never an issue. We met with Kyle before our wedding and he definitely eased all concerns we had about the music and flow of the evening. The day of, Kyle was fantastic. He read the crowd and was able to keep our dance floor busy. He was great about heading requests of our guests and making sure the night stuck to our vision while appeasing everyone. Would recommend Kyle and Sounds Abound over and over!
July 30, 2016
We got married on July 3, 2016 and are so glad we chose Sounds Abound to DJ our wedding. Everyone we talked to at the company was very professional, helpful and friendly. We chose Kyle as our DJ and he was fantastic! He made sure our dance floor was packed the entire night and played a variety of music for both the younger and older crowds. He also helped keep us on schedule throughout the night so we didn't need to worry about a thing. We have received so many compliments from guests on how much they loved our wedding and how much fun they had. Everyone also had a blast in the photo booth. My brother has already booked Kyle for his wedding next year and I will definitely continue to recommend him and Sounds Abound to others! Thank you so much for making our wedding unforgettable!
July 3, 2016
Sounds Abound is Top Notch!
We hired sounds abound for our wedding after having seen them DJ at a friends wedding 2 years prior. We were lucky enough to have Kyle as our DJ and boy did he deliver! He knew EXACTLY the style of music we wanted played and was so easy and willing to work with us and make changes on the fly! You can easily tell he has experience and knows how to get a crowd dancing! We could not be more thrilled with how our night went! If we ever need a DJ for any other event, we will definitely be coming back to sounds abound!
July 22, 2016
We thank you very much for being such a significant part of our wedding reception by providing the most wonderful music entertainment. From the first encounter to the actual big day, you and everyone were so professional and truly helped us to have a great experience. Kyle, I especially thank you for all of the extra time and energy that you put forth with being sure to include all of the extra special songs that meant a lot to us to play, and most of all for the work you did to create the special daddy-daughter mix for the dance with me and my dad. So many of our family members and guests told us how much they enjoyed the music and how much fun they had because of that - this was more that I could ask for. We can tell that you truly love what you do which made our time with you all the more special. We thank you so much again!

I have always measured the success of a wedding reception upon how packed the dance floor is and if that is the case, our wedding was a phenomenal success due to many aspects but Sounds Abound was a MAJOR part of that success. Our dance floor was packed all the way from the first dance to the last. We had Kyle Overbey as our DJ/MC for the night. He was great. He played any requested songs the guests had and played the kind of music that kept the dance floor pumping all night, not just for the young crowd but we had granny up there on multiple occasions dancing away. No cheesy games or gimmicks here to get you on the dance floor. He helped us plan our evening as far as schedule goes and it went smoothly. I did not have to worry about a thing or where I had to be at what time. He he kept us informed but allowed us to have a great time visiting with guests. He did a great job playing the right music at the right time and did so without stealing the spotlight and talking too much, which I have seen and can get distracting. The only regret was not booking the hall longer so we could dance longer! It was the best party I have ever attended - but I could be a bit bias. But we have received many comments from guests saying what a great playlist we had and how much they they had. I'd like to think a good chunk of that is due to Kyle and Sounds Abound!
May 7, 2016
Kyle was absolutely amazing!!! He played everything we loved and was completely professional! I didn't have a father daughter dance song picked out and he made a point to let me know he was about to play a song that would be a great fit for us so we could share a dance. Above and beyond amazing! The photo booth was a great addition to our wedding! These guys are the best!
June 11, 2016
We used Kyle from Sounds Abound as our wedding DJ and I cannot express enough how fabulous he did at our event. Sounds Abound and Kyle were very professional and responsive while I was in the planning process. They listened to our desires, concerns and provided suggestions and feedback. On our big day, the dance floor was never empty - everyone was dancing the night away. If people did start to stray, Kyle was right there to switch up the music to get them going again. He added nice touches to our announcements, made sure to confirm name pronunciations for our family and bridal party, and really made our wedding feel very personalized. He worked well with our other vendors, there was not a dull moment or random down time during the event, and our guests have all commented saying how fun and wonderful the DJ's were. If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely book Sounds Abound again. We had a blast and everything went very smoothly! Thank you so much Kyle! You are AMAZING!

Sounds Abound is AWESOME!
I was looking for a DJ for our wedding on May 20, 2016, so I put a feeler post out on Facebook and asked my friends if anyone had any DJ suggestions. As it turns out I received an abundant of suggestions and the one DJ that kept coming up a lot was Sounds Abound. As it turns out, my sister had used Sounds Abound at her wedding back in 1999 and I always had thought that DJ was fabulous! So, considering I already had a family testimonial for the quality of DJ services I was looking for, we chose to call them.
Sounds Abound was extremely easy to work with and we had a lot of special requests that required coordination with our groomsman as we had some out of the box entertainment at our wedding, but Sounds Abound most definitely rose to the occasion and were very helpful and willing to go above and beyond to make our special day even that much for unique and spectacular.
The music at our reception was fantastic and everyone I speak with that attended our wedding had such a great time dancing as everyone knows the MUSIC is what makes a great wedding!
Thank you Sounds Abound and Kyle for a most memorable wedding and making my dream wedding everything I had always dreamed it would be.
Warmest Regards, Kelly Myers
May 20, 2016
Kyle, Thank you so much for making our wedding absolutely perfect. It meant the entire world to us for you to take into consideration all of the crazy song requests our friends & family threw your way. Everyone is still talking about how the last song, Bohemian Rhapsody, gave them chills. It was a perfect way to send us off into our married life, and they say it was the Best Wedding they have been to. Thank you for helping with our Fairy Tale!

Customized and Crazy
We decided to use Sounds Abound early on in the process as we liked the option of choosing our own DJ. We picked Kyle as he was the type of young, vibrant personality we were looking for with our wedding. He was great throughout the entire process and we met multiple times beforehand to brainstorm potential ideas.
Our wedding was unique in that we needed a completely customized playlist for each individual event. For cocktail hour and dinner, music wasn't just being played as background music, but rather a focal point that set the entire mood and atmosphere. Our reception playlist was one of a kind and Kyle worked with me to create a crazy fun experience that had everyone going nuts for 3+ hours straight!
Kyle did a fantastic job of listening to what our goals were and how we were looking to accomplish them. By working together closely, we brought that all to life and people are still talking about it! Will for sure be referring Sounds Abound and Kyle to all future friends getting married!

Kyle took the DJ business to the next level. He is humble yet very factual and knowledgeable - he claims he was trained by his father at a very young age.
When you decide Sounds Abound , talk to kyle from the start up to the event and after the event. He will make your dreams look very premitive once the celebration begins .

Outstanding and Detailed DJs!
Sounds Abound is an amazing company that helped make our wedding so much fun! Kyle was our head DJ and really took the time to look at our profile and play what we wanted, while also adding music choices he selected that were similar. Our wedding guests raved at how awesome the music choices were as well. As the bride and groom, we never left the dance floor! We also had a video montage done by Sounds Abound. It was such a highlight for our wedding party and guests! Job well done, Kyle and crew! 🙂
January 16, 2016
We had such a fabulous experience with Kyle and SoundsAbound Entertainment! Throughout the night I had my friends and family repeatedly tell me how much they were enjoying the music. My dance floor was NEVER empty and I even had people coming from the other wedding that was next to my reception hall come into my wedding and dance because they said our music was better than theirs!!! It was such a fun evening and Kyle made it even more special with the variety of music he played and the way he kept everyone dancing! I appreciate it so much!!!

We knew music was going to be one of the most important parts of our reception and knew we had to find the best out there, especially after being at some weddings that didn't have good dancing music. I was researching DJs when I found Sounds Abound and looked at their website. They had an Open House to go to and meet the DJs in person. We really liked this because you got to meet with multiple DJs and find out their style and see how your personalities matched. One of the people we met there was Kyle, and we knew right away we wanted him to be our DJ. Kyle was our DJ for our reception on 11/21/15 and he was seriously awesome! Kyle kept the dance floor literally packed all night. We keep hearing from all our guests about how great the music was and how much fun they had dancing. The online planning tool they use is great, you get to request all the music through that. Kyle asked us about what songs we did/did not want to hear and made an awesome playlist. I seriously am beyond happy with our decision and Kyle truly made our wedding reception the most fun night for everyone! Definitely worth the money and would recommend them for anyone that wants a fun DJ!

Michael said... EXCITING! We had the one and only KYLE for our Wedding at the Bolingbrook Golf Club. It was a Sunday Evening Wedding (Day Before Columbus Day) and Kyle kept the party and dancing going well into the night. The online portal was super easy to use and made our day run exactly as we had planned! Thanks for your energy, Kyle. And THANK YOU for being a part of our Wedding!

Our DJ Kyle from Sounds Abound, did a wonderful job at our wedding. He was intuitive to all of our guests music preferences and he was capable in implementing last minute changes in a way that the guests did not know if something wasn't planned. He helped us plan and made sure that the lighting wasn't too flashy since one of my family members has seizures. Kyle went over pronunciations of everyone's names multiple times to ensure that he did not say them incorrectly. Overall, we are extremely satisfied with the service Kyle and Sounds Abound provided us. We highly recommend this company.

We had such a great experience with Sounds Abound. We got the package where we got to pick our DJ. We pick Kyle. He was great. He had everyone on the dance floor all night. Very upbeat and professional. He made everything very easy for us and kept us on schedule! THANKS KYLE! YOU'RE AMAZING!

Kyle was our DJ for our wedding on 9/12/15 and he did an EXCELLENT job! People were on the dance floor literally all night long. He read the crowd perfectly and would switch up the songs seamlessly if people weren't into them. He played all of the songs we wanted and knowing that my husband and I met at the University of Illinois, he even played our school's fight song without us requesting it! For our last song we had requested Piano Man, and Kyle made sure that everyone knew 2 songs out that the reception would be ending soon. For Piano Man, he had our guests form a circle on the dance floor surrounding us and then had them bring it in for the end. It was my absolute favorite part of the night. Kyle kept all of our other vendors (photographer, videographer) informed of different events throughout the night so that they could be sure to capture all of those moments for us. After the wedding, we had multiple guests approach us to say how the DJ was great and that it was the best wedding DJ that they'd heard in awhile. I cannot say enough good things about Kyle and Sounds Abound and I would recommend them to anyone! Thank you so much Kyle and Sounds Abound for making our night so perfect!

Kyle was our DJ and was so much fun to work with. Our dance floor was never empty! We had a blast dancing to all our favorite songs and he made the transitions seamless.
August 22, 2015
We just had Kyle as our DJ and MC for our wedding. Highly recommend!!!!! He was tuned into the crowd and played exactly what the people wanted to hear. His experience and expertise was key in keeping the crowd dancing all night long. Thank you so much we had an amazing night!
August 28, 2015
I cannot say enough good things about Sounds Abound!!! A DJ is HUGE at a wedding to keep everyone entertained and the dance floor full! Kyle did an AMAZING job at this! I would highly recommend him and sounds abound to anyone planning a wedding!!!! Keeping in contact with Kyle was a breeze! Any questions I had were answered super fast! I also got up lighting through Sounds Abound and it was beautiful! They met me at my reception hall to choose the perfect color for our reception! I had multiple guests come up to me saying how great our DJ was! I've never seen a dance floor that full for the last song of the night! If you need a DJ choose Sounds Abound!!!!
August 1, 2015
I cannot express how overly satisfied we were with Sounds Abound (specifically, our DJ, Kyle Overbey). We exchanged many emails before the wedding and he was sure to answer all of my questions. We used Sounds Abound as our DJ for the outside wedding ceremony and also for the DJ for the reception. The sound equipment was absolutely perfect outside and everyone could hear. The inside equipment and lights (we added uplights to our package to help make the room look nicer) were absolutely great. We also did the photo booth and the staff from Sounds Abound really got people in there, having a good time. Our music was unbelievable and Kyle had everyone on the dance floor, the entire night. Our pictures absolutely show people out of their seats and dancing. It was such a great mix of oldies and new music. I would never use another company, after my fabulous experience with Sounds Abound! Thank you to the staff and especially to Kyle, for an unbelievable party!

Katherine said... We hired Sounds Abound to do our music, uplighting, and photobooth. Our venue was Bocaditos at The Brookfield Zoo. The reception space layout is kind of odd but Sounds Abound found the perfect spot for our Photo Booth and dance floor in there. They really transformed the room. The uplighting matched our color theme perfectly. I highly recommend getting lights. It will revolutionize your space. I've seen weddings at the zoo without the up-lights and it just didn't look as nice. We also had DJ lighting on the dance floor. Gotta add lights for your wedding, trust me! For photos we went with the big fun booth. Chris was our attendant. He did a great job helping guests with props, explained how the booth works once inside, and handed out lots of pictures to everyone. At the end of the night he handed me a usb thumb drive from all the pictures taken in the booth that night. He also said if we lose the drive they have back ups. Chris was friendly to everyone and did a great job with the booth. Now the music. Honestly I've never seen a better DJ feel the dance floor so well like Kyle does. If the floor was getting tired he brought it down with some chill songs. If the floor wanted to rock he kicked it up. He even came out and danced with us during some line songs. He played everything I requested. I've been to a lot of clubs and his mixes/mashups were better! He announced everything on time, got the crowd cheering, and gave a great pep talk to our wedding party when we walked out for our grand entrance. I think Sounds Abound has a lot of DJs to choose from. I'm sure they're all good but I'd recommend Kyle Overbey. Sounds Abound was our favorite wedding vendor as they were easy to work with and friendly, answered emails promptly, and did a great job! They made the night fun!

WOW. My husband and I got married June 13th and are still talking about how much fun we had during our reception! Kyle with Sounds Abound had a HUGE role in that! It started with their perfect volume and control of our ceremony music and mics. Everyone could be heard and things were timed and faded so smoothly. Once we went up for cocktails and dinner, they helped make the evening run right on time. Then it was party time! Our dance floor stayed packed the whole night! Songs we wanted and more were played! They did an amazing job of playing to our crowd and making sure the good times keep going! Beyond the great job they did was the care and customer service my husband, family, and I received from Kyle and the staff. The whole experience felt very personal and like we had a family friend there making our party happen. I truly appreciate everything they did to make our big day so smooth, seamless, and memorable. Thank you a million!! -Mr. & Mrs. Hettinger

Sounds Abound Right!
We got our DJ and Photo Booth from Sounds Abound for our wedding on March 27, 2015 and we could not be more satisfied with Kyle, Rufus, and the whole Sounds Abound staff! Kyle was with us every step of the way...he helped us pick songs and made sure to have the specific songs we requested. Every detail we had gone over with him was carried out perfectly on the day of our wedding. The dance floor was packed and moving the ENTIRE night! Kyle did a wonderful job catering to each and every one of our guests (but also ran their requests by us first). He knew just the right songs to play and when to play them.
Kyle even improvised extremely well and added our sand ceremony before the cake (because our officiant forgot it). He gave a beautiful introduction.
The Photo Booth was also a huge hit all night! There was a minor glitch with the date on the prints at first, but they more than made up for it by extending their time with us. All of the photos turned out great!
Overall Kyle's charismatic and helpful attitude made the night a smashing success!!! We received so many compliments about him and have recommended him to all of our friends and relatives. We will definitely return to Sounds Abound for any and all of our future DJ/Photo Booth needs!
March 27, 2015
Erica said... We used Kyle as our DJ and we couldn't have been happier! He allowed us to compose our own request list as well as listened to what our guests wanted. There was never a time throughout the wedding where no one was on the dance floor! I have never seen so many guests still out there dancing at 12 am! We had a great time and we cannot speak more highly of Kyle and Sounds Abound!
May 2, 2015
In a way I feel like this will end up being a huge promotion, but in the end I want it to. We chose Kyle from sounds abound to do our wedding and I honestly believe we had the best DJ out there.
Mind you this is coming from a guy that frequents bars and has a very distinct type of music style that he likes. When it comes to classic rock and alternative, Kyle listened to all our requests and while I'm not promoting our wedding, I feel like I've never seen a dance floor so full at any wedding I've been to, which has been at least over 40 weddings in the past 8 years. He was phenomenal, and every guest at our wedding I talked to afterwards has said that our wedding was an absolute blast. My aunts were dancing along with almost every guest we had. This is coming from a groom that idols my like to dance a ton, but that dance floor was drawing everyone in.
I couldn't be more ecstatic about Kyle and the job he did. At the end of the night when we wanted to have a private moment last dance and security was being pushovers, Kyle played our song and let us dance while the tables were being torn down. He is the consummate DJ that looks out for the couple and makes sure that their day is perfect. He did just that and I couldn't be happier. If you can book a better DJ I dare you to. I give all my thanks to Kyle and his crew and how welcoming they were to our somewhat ridiculous requests. Thank you Kyle and your crew.

We used Kyle O for DJ services as well and we rented their Photo Booth and uplighting for our wedding reception. We had a great experience with the company as a whole. Everyone that attended our wedding raved about how wonderful our DJ was. He definitely kept the dance floor full the entire evening. He was extremely professional and it is obvious how much he cares about his job!
We would definitely recommend Sounds Abound to anyone!
November 23, 2012
Kyle and Sounds Abound were incredible at our wedding.
The music. the uplighting. the whole package.
Kyle from Sounds Abound was incredible at our wedding. He worked with us for months before the wedding ensuring everything would be perfect.... and it was.
The music was incredible. Ive never been to a wedding were people literally stayed on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG. Usually you have a lull somewhere at other weddings I have been to, but Kyle and Sounds Abound kept people there all night. Everyone raved about our dj service and our beautiful uplighting that Sounds Abound provided.
Exceeded our expectations. we couldn't be happier with the services provided. Thank you!!!

AMAZING -- Even with crazy requests
We just got married on 12/13/14. When we chose the date, our venue suggested we book vendors ASAP. I did a lot of research to find my dj and wanted to make sure they were local to Naperville. I met with about five companies and the first four did not leave a good impression. When we met with Kyle Overbey at Sounds Abound (about a year out from the wedding), we knew we had to lock him in. He was laid-back but knew so much about music. We seemed to understand each other well. I told him we'd likely not put many limitations on what could be played/could not be played. Fast forward to three weeks before the wedding and we met with Kyle again. He had amazing recommendations for bridal party songs, and our last song. They weren't run of the mill songs and I appreciated that he took the time to get to know us to decide what songs would work. We felt more than confident he would do a great job.
On the day of the wedding, my dad had a few surprises that he worked with Kyle on including a Frank Sinatra cover singer and a little video presentation. Kyle was ready to pump music into the cocktail hour just in case the sinatra singer bombed (thankfully all went well). Kyle had a difficult job at our wedding because he was getting requests all over the board, including a few that I put on the "do not play" list. He was kind to the guests and when my dad insisted on a song from the do not play list, Kyle came to talk to me about it and always used his best judgment. Overall, there is no way I would choose another company. Our 24x24 dance floor was PACKED from open to close. Kyle was simply the best.
We also booked Sounds Abound for the photo booth. It's a must have! They do a great job putting together the scrapbook, which is a forever keepsake. Lastly we used Sounds Abound for uplighting. I found out after the fact that the original color we selected didn't look right with our colors, but Sounds Abound worked with my wedding team to come to a quick decision and it was gorgeous.
Thanks Kyle and Sounds Abound!!!!!
December 13, 2014
Our wedding on 12-12-14 was amazing because of Kyle. I never had to worry about anything and he kept everyone on the dance floor all night long. Everything was perfect! Could not recommend Sounds Abound enough!
December 12, 2014
Prompt, Persistent, Professional
Going through the process of planning a wedding with my wife I learned that the most important aspect of all was communication. Sounds Abounds was by far our best vendor when it came to communicating and this was evident from the beginning. During the first meeting and all other meetings after that anything discussed was always carefully written down and sent out after the meeting so everybody was in agreement. This really helped out when you called in to discuss something with a Sounds Abounds staff member. Furthermore, Sounds Abounds always made sure we were on track with our planning making sure to send out reminders. It was one less thing to think about which helped out a lot. The online music portal they provided was also very user friendly and made planning our music for the night a very positive experience.
On to our actual DJ, Kyle Overbey. Kyle was a true professional. He made my wife and I feel at ease throughout the whole planning process. I can honestly say that I had no worries going into the wedding regarding our DJ because Kyle had everything under control. He was there to offer guidance when we had questions and make recommendations when called upon. Kyle's true skills were in full force the night of our wedding. I had both young and older people coming up to me telling me how awesome the music was. The sound was perfect and Kyle created a personal play list that got the party going.
Thank you Kyle and Sounds Abounds for making our wedding night very special!
November 22, 2014
Dave and I just wanted to tell you how extremely please we were with your company for our wedding reception. Kyle and Rufus did a great job, and really were able to get to know our guests and what got them on the dance floor in a short amount of time. We received nothing but praises about the great music, lighting, and DJs. Thank you so much for being a part of our day and making it a memorable experience. I have already had people ask for your company's information; perhaps we will see you again at friends'/families' weddings. Thanks again!
November 15, 2014
We could not have asked for a better DJ than Kyle. Everything at the reception went off without a hitch thanks to Kyle and his assistant. All of our guests stated they had never experience such an amazing reception and much of that had to do with Kyle. The dance floor was always full and the song choices were perfect! We let Kyle have free reign over what to play and he did not disappoint! We would recommend Sounds Abound and Kyle to anyone who needs an amazing company to work with!
November 14, 2014
Thanks for helping us pull off a fantastic wedding! Everyone raved about the music! We had so much fun and you made the entire process much easier for us!

People centered, fun and outgoing
Kyle Overbey MC'ed our wedding and absolutely killed it! We met him just a few days before and he helped to calm our nerves and relayed the message that he simply was there for us. I initially had mentioned to Kyle my concern about entertaining all generations at my wedding, making sure the young crowd had a solid party but the older crowd felt comfortable enjoying themselves as well. You wouldn't believe how many guests, young and old, told us that it was hands down the best wedding they had ever attended. Kyle accommodated all sorts of requests, including generational dances, traditional dances, and even a Polka or two. Kyle and Nico were outgoing and receptive to both our requests in addition to the feel of the crowd. They even had an awesome light show set up that really added to the excitement of the night. We were so grateful to have had Sounds Abound and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a wonderful wedding experience.
October 25, 2014
Kyle from Sounds Abound was the DJ at our wedding reception in September of 2014. From the time I spoke with him months before the wedding, he was wonderful and constantly helping us with planning the music. The online planning was WONDERFUL too! It's convenient and it was easy to go on and add songs as you thought of them throughout the planning process. The wedding music was nothing short of amazing. He did a great job coordinating with our photographer, videographer, and banquet hall too! The dance floor was packed from the time dancing started until the reception ended. Kyle played great songs and knew how to keep the crowd partying all night! He was wonderful to work with and made sure I had everything I wanted...if you want great music & a fun DJ, you want Sounds Abound!

Awesome Wedding DJ
We had Kyle as our DJ and he was better than we could have imagined. There was a great diversity in the music and everything we requested was played. Anytime there was a dull moment the music was quickly changed to make sure everyone kept dancing. So many of our guest said this was one of the best DJs they have ever seen and we would have danced for hours and hours more.
August 23, 2014
Incredible customer service and energy!
From the day I inquired about DJ service the Sounds Abound team was nothing short of amazing! They are incredibly responsive and put your needs and event first. They are flexible, always available to answer your questions and you feel like you're their number one priority. Kyle was our wedding DJ and we couldn't have asked for someone better. The energy he brought from our first meeting to the start of our event all the way through to the last song was incredible. He knew how to keep the energy level high and folks on the dance floor! We highly recommend Kyle and the entire Sounds Abound team!
August 2, 2014
Great service and attention to all of the details
Sounds Abounds provides very professional service that was great for our occasion. We had Kyle Overbey for our wedding DJ/MC and he was wonderful. He knew how to keep the crowd engaged during the wedding and took care of all of the little details so that we didn't have to. He is so friendly and energetic, you can tell he has a great passion for what he does. We will definitely recommend Sounds Abound to everyone we know for any occasion.

KYLE OVERBY IS THE MAN!!!
We were lucky enough to have DJ Kyle Overbey from Sounds Abound for our entire wedding day. He was our ceremony musician as well as reception DJ. He did much more than those two titles lead on, he coordinated when things would happen, and told people the plan, so that I, the Bride on my wedding day, didn't have to do crowd control or announcements. Kyle gave me suggestions on music throughout the planning process, he really got to know my fiance and I's music interests before hand, and was just a delight throughout the night. A week later, I was with a group of friends, and they were all commenting to me on how amazing the music was at the end of the night especially, and asked if I had requested that be done. I said no, and told them what DJ Kyle told me - "just trust me, I am a people reader, reading the crowd and playing the music they want to hear is my job." My friends were amazed!!! Thank you, Kyle and Sounds Abound for a night we will never forget!
July 5, 2014
Thanks so much to Kyle Overbey & assistant Rufus for the great job they did at our wedding yesterday, adapting to our musical tastes & not playing typical wedding music! We got to dance to our favorite songs & everyone complimented us on the great music!
July 11, 2014
Our DJ, Kyle did an awesome job of keeping everyone dancing all night long. We are very thankful for that. I will recommend Kyle to everyone and Sounds Abound because people had a great time and were dancing and that was his job and he did it well. Thank you!
June 20, 2014
I used Sounds Abound for my wedding. Kyle was a DJ. My husband and I wanted our guests to have a great time and fill the dance floor. Kyle made sure everyone was having a great time. He gladly played the music we requested for the wedding and he exceeded our exceptions. Everyone could not stop talking about the music at the wedding. It was one of the most memorable parts of the wedding.Thank you so much!!!
June 21, 2014
AWESOME!!! You were Money!
Kyle -Lindsay and I cannot thank you enough for the DJ'ing that you did at our wedding. You were amazing - you fed off of the crowd and got everyone moving. I cannot tell you how many people came up to us and said how awesome the music was. You are a very, very talented DJ. Your personality and skills shined through big-time at our wedding. You were not there to collect a paycheck - you were there to be part of the event and enhance the energy in the room. And you NAILED IT!!!
One simple example, was the fact that Sample In A Jar was the first song of the wedding blew me away! You took one little comment during our speech and made it happen. Additionally, where you came up with Bohemian Rhapsody as the final song blew everyone away, but again, you NAILED IT!!!
June 13, 2014
We had our wedding reception on April 5, 2014. Sounds Abound provided us with our dj, photobooth, projection screen, slideshow, and uplighting. Our DJ was Kyle, he was absolutely amazing. He went above and beyond. When first meeting with Kyle our goal was to have everyone on the dance floor having a great time and Kyle did just that. We let Kyle do his thing and feel out the crowd and he did an incredible job. Our friends/family members are still talking about Kyle and how fun the wedding was. Kyle was extremely organized and worked with our wedding coordinator at the hotel and provided us with the most amazing music. Everyone loved the photobooth and uplighting. I cannot thank Kyle and Sounds Abound enough for making our wedding so special. I recommend them to everyone. We had the most incredible experience and had so much fun with Kyle and Sounds Abound.
April 5, 2014
We got married on February 21st, 2014.
A few months before the event, we stumbled across Sounds Abound. Right from the start, we were thrilled with the excellent service we received. After my initial email, we heard back within hours, and were able to schedule a meeting.
My husband, Chad (fiancé at the time) and I both loved the event planner on the website, and the fact that we could create our own 'Do Not Play' list, as well as must play songs, and other songs we liked.
When we met shortly before our wedding (about a week) with our DJ, Kyle Overbey, we felt even better!! We are not the most 'traditional' people, and our musical tastes are not what are normally played at weddings. Kyle assured us that he would be able to play the music we like, but still conducive to dancing.
At our reception, I'm sure it seemed a little strange. We had a strange mix of people, and only a handful of young dancers. Kyle and his assistant (not sure if I ever got the assistant's name) were FANTASTIC. Even though we didn't have a 'super dancing' crowd, we had a handful of people on the dance floor most of the night. Now it is only 11 days after the wedding, and I have already had THREE different relatives compliment me on the music played during cocktails and dinner, and on the dance floor as well.
Kyle did a great job of playing the music we prefer, but also reading our crowd....which I must say was likely a difficult crowd to read.
I will recommend Sounds Abound (as well as Kyle) to anyone who asks!!
We had a great wedding, and a great reception, and much of that was because of our DJ! He offered great service even after seeing my white girl dance moves (trust me, they make me look like I am having seizures on the dance floor!)
February 21, 2014
We help our clients secure their financial future.
Sounds abound did a phenomenal job at our black tie recognition dinner. Kyle chose the music perfectly for our group! We rented the photo book and that was a blast! The DJ to our surprise and delight incorporated sound affects into the presentation portion of the evening...WOW did that add a fun element. Everyone really had a great time. We will definitely be working with them in the future.
Planning made EASY!
I used Sounds Abound for my dad's 70th Surprise party in December. Thankfully, Kyle was discreet in both our planning and day of the event. Within moments of me telling him my dad was en route, he had 75 people patiently and quietly waiting in the designated area of the room- I was so impressed. The music started at the perfect time (just after 'Surprise')and didn't stop all night! From cocktail hour, to dinner and beyond- he hit all the music on the head. Additionally, when my dad requested a few older songs he was sure they wouldn't have, Kyle reached into his extensive library and had ALL OF THEM! I was thrilled with Sounds Abound and so was my dad!

Key West Destination Wedding
For my wedding on 10.20.2013 Kyle Overbey was our DJ and he did an AMAZING job. He kept the dance floor full the entire night! In fact, it was so crowded, everyone barely fit onto it. He did such a great job reading the crowd and playing all of the right songs that our guests are still telling us how much fun they had at our wedding. Kyle had an excellent idea of how to conclude the night in a truly magical way. My new husband and I ended the evening dancing to one of our favorite songs surrounded in a circle by all of our family and friends on the dance floor. Our wedding was so much fun that I woke up the next morning ready to plan our vow renewals and I know we’ll use Sounds Abound again!
October 20, 2013
We just got married a week ago and it was amazing! Kyle and Nico did the best job! Kyle also DJed my sister's wedding and I would absolutely recommend him to my friends who are getting married. They knew exactly what songs to play when to keep the party going and they completely organized the reception and kept me stress free. Can't thank you guys enough!
December 7, 2013
Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful
Sounds Abound really made our wedding reception a fabulous event! They kept in contact during the planning process. The online planning tools were very easy to use.I schedule an appointment to meet with them before the wedding but ended up not being able to make it. Our DJ was more than happy to meet with me over the phone. Our DJ was Kyle and he was phenomenal. He was very professional. He kept the evening rolling without being over bearing or pushy. He listened to my husband and I and our guests. He played great song after great song. Our guests were on the dance floor all night. Overall everyone I contacted at Sounds Abound was easy to work with and straight forward. We could not be happier!!!
November 30, 2013
Excellent in all areas!
Kyle Overby was the DJ for our October 19, 2013 wedding and we couldn't be happier with him and everyone we had contact with at Sounds Abound. I spent a great deal of time researching DJs and when I took to Facebook to ask friends for recommendations more than 10 friends suggested Sounds Abound! Couples getting married will spend hours researching potential vendors, but the only call they need to make for DJ and Photo Booth services is to Sounds Abound.
We initially met with Jeff Wells, who was great to work with. He took to the time to explain to us the options available and work with us to create a package that fit our needs and budget. At no time did we feel pressured. Any questions we had were promptly answered and they stayed in regular contact with us.
We loved using the online planner to add songs for introductions and the must play list. Although we didn't add any songs to the "Do Not Play List" it's a great option. We were also able to add songs and the type of music we wanted played at dinner.
I met with Kyle a few weeks before the wedding to finalize details and go over names, and I knew we had made a great decision in selecting him. He had some great suggestions, like playing the Blackhawks Goal Horn as my husband and I were walking out as we chose Chelsea Dagger as our introduction song. He was organized and took care to make sure the evening ran smoothly.
Most importantly, he read the crowd and played music to keep the dance floor packed all night! We are still receiving compliments from friends and family that the music played at our wedding was the best of any wedding they had attended. There is no better compliment than that!
The Photo Booth was a big hit as well! Guests of all ages enjoyed visiting and we are thrilled to have not only hard copies of all the photos, but also a disc with them as well.
Thank you to Jeff, Kyle and Sounds Abound for making our wedding a truly memorable experience!
October 19, 2013
I seriously could have not had a better dj! Kyle was amazing! He had everyone on the dance floor! He played great music. Everyone still keeps telling me how much fun my wedding was!!! And honestly it's all because of the music!!!! Best dj ever and so affordable. I love sounds abound!!!!! Thank you guys so much! You made my wedding so memorable! Just what I wanted when it came to the everything involving music ! Plus the party give aways was an awesome idea!!!
August 1, 2013
I will be saying the same thing that everyone else has...Sounds Abound is incredible! We were able to hand pick our DJ and see some of his work before booking. We chose to go with Kyle and I couldn't be happier. He was very friendly and genuinely loves his job. We met with him twice and I felt at ease that our party would be fantastic. He kept us on track throughout the night. They provided the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception and uplighting for the reception. The dance floor was full the whole night. He got out on the dance floor to teach our guests the Cupid Shuffle. Even the assistant (Tony) was dancing behind the table! He used our must-play list to create a perfect dance party. I would highly recommend Sounds Abound for any bride!
August 3, 2013
Kyle did an amazing job! He really kept the dancing going. Everyone had a great time! I'd recommend him in a heartbeat!

Kyle and his partner were excellent DJs at our wedding! They were very professional and everything turned out even better than I expected! They played great music and everybody was on the dance floor. I cannot say enough good things about Sounds Abound 🙂
August 31, 2013
Kyle Overby was our DJ. Friends of ours had him as their DJ a couple years ago, and we remembered how great he was, so we went straight to the source when it was our turn.
He was amazing. My favorite thing about Sounds Abounds, was not only their attentiveness to us, but the fact that we could choose all of our songs online and create a playlist.
I had many requests for both the ceremony and reception and Kyle was very accommodating.
Not only was he on top of things, but he was great at the wedding. It was an absolute blast. Our guests continue to talk about what a great DJ he was, there was never 1 point during the entire wedding that there was not a group of people dancing on the dance floor, it was a giant party! I'd recommend Kyle to be your wedding DJ any time, this company overall is fantastic.

Best DJ Ever!!
I cannot say enough good things about the work that Sounds Abound did to make our wedding amazing!!!
Booking was easy and their prices are incredibly reasonable. We went with the 2 DJ package and were very pleased with the results.
We wanted our bridal party to each have their own "entrance," which Sounds Abound was happy to do. Kyle made sure that each person/couple was introduced and that the right music was played, and even helped us create a special entrance for ourselves based on our favorite pro wrestler!
As the night went on the music just kept getting better! Kyle and Nico really knew how to read the room and were able to play what made people dance!! If something wasn't working they were able to smoothly transition into a new song to entice people back to the dance floor. They also helped us with some fun special dances like the anniversary dance and new classics like the Cupid Shuffle and Cha Cha Slide.
Again, can't say enough great things! Everyone was dancing all night and we got so many compliments from friends young and old about the music. Thank you so much for making our wedding the best night ever!!

Kyle did an amazing job for our wedding. My parents love to complain about DJs at weddings, and they couldn't even come up with one thing to complain about! The guys were super fun, very organized, and really made the night go smoothly. Great music selection, and Kyle was available for my countless emails with prompt answers to everything. They really blended in well with our group too, which was a nice change of pace at a wedding. Thanks for giving us a wonderful reception!

Kyle Overbey was our dj for our September wedding! Kyle couldn't have been anymore perfect for our group of crazy friends and family. He got the party started and kept it going all night long. Even when the dance floor got a little empty (because of our photo booth) Kyle got everyone back up there. Kept playing hit after hit and request after request and it was the most amazing wedding! Friends kept coming up to me saying "this dj is amazing" and that was so awesome to hear! Kyle made our wedding party unforgettable!!!!
Oh yeah and that's me in the air during Queen.... We are crazy lolol
Thanks again Kyle you were wonderful!!
September 27, 2013
You guys did an amazing job!!!!!!!!!! KYLE IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!! he had everyone on the dance floor all night long! I have gotten more compliments on our dj than anything else!!!! thank you for making out night so special!!!!

If you would like a slice of comfort among the heavy mist of wedding planning stress, do not look any further for your DJ! Kyle from sounds abound was fantastic for two solid reasons. His caring heart and patient demeanor are two key elements that immediately made you feel like a talented friend was helping you. He provided suggestions, offered help and even provided direct assistance with the online planner!
During the day of the wedding, he set up his equipment very early, brought his notes about our requests and his upbeat personality too! We made last minute changes, and he responded on the spot with cheer and quick thinking!
You can not go wrong with Sounds Abounds and Kyle as your DJ!
Ps.. We purchased the game show hosting segment and loved this too! We already said that for our next big party, we are calling Kyle at Sounds Abounds!!
By the way, I am a person that expects the best from those I do business with and that is exactly what we received!

Our wedding was a PAAAARRRRTTTTAAAYYYY!!! Every guest had an amazing time and the dance floor was packed the entire night. No one wanted the event to end thanks to Kyle's excellent entertainment and music selections! Sounds Abound was incredible to work with! The online music planner allowed us to choose songs with our friends and family and request them online. Then meeting with our DJ, Kyle, made everything cohesive. He helped us make final decisions on song choices for things like cake cutting and garter toss. We were able to walk through the night's timeline with Kyle so everyone was on the same page. After the event, the wedding planner said she'd never had a smoother flowing event and it was all thanks to the DJ keeping everything on track! Kyle was a delight! Our rowdy bridal party was a challenge to organize but he did it; our first dance was not 1 but FOUR songs that Kyle was able to mix for us; and Kyle even warned us when the videographer was about to wrap up just so we could make sure our bouquet toss and garter throw were recorded. By the end of the night the groomsmen had split their pants and sweat through their vests from dancing so much! Even the flower girls lasted all night they were having so much fun there was no time to even think they were tired! On top of all the music, Sounds Abound provided the perfect touch to the room with uplighting. They were even able to accommodate our colors, teal and purple. The room was gorgeous, the music was bumping, and the guests won't forget a minute of the night! Thank you Sounds Abound and especially Kyle for making our night PERFECT... if only we could repeat it every weekend :o)

Kyle did such an amazing job at both our ceremony and reception. The ceremony went so smoothly, no awkward pauses or anything like I've experienced at other ceremonies. Our guests had so much fun and we could not have had a better day. Kyle did a great job of checking in through the night and keeping us updated and moving along so we didn't run out of time. Music choices were perfect an he kept everyone on the floor all night long. He was great with our families and friends as he lined us all up and got everyone's names correct, even with some last minute changes. Seriously the greatest day of our lives, in part because of the amazing party Kyle and Rufus helped us throw! Thanks guys!!

My husband and I had our reception on July 5th, 2013 at Brookfield Zoo. We were referred to Sounds Abound by three other couples. Given this, we did not look at any other companies. From the moment I first called Sounds Abound I received nothing but exceptional service. We chose Kyle Overbey as our DJ and could not have been happier! When we met with Kyle, he took the time to get to know us as a couple and discuss what we were looking for. He spent time talking to us about the theme and the type of music we like and what we wanted. Every interaction we had with Sounds Abound and Kyle showed us that customer service, and overall satisfaction were their highest priorities. We never second guessed our decision to work with Sounds Abound and highly recommend Kyle to anyone looking for a DJ. The online planner was an amazing tool that allowed us to share our likes and dislikes with Kyle. Throughout our reception, Kyle not only kept the flow of our reception going but the musical selection was PERFECT! It was almost as if Kyle knew exactly what we wanted to hear at what time. Kyle and Tony (his assistant for the evening) did a great job of keeping the energy up and everyone dancing. One memory I will never forget is looking over at Kyle and his assistant Tony and seeing them rock out with us as we danced to “Living on a Prayer”. They were not just there to provide an excellent service, but also genuinely had fun at our reception. If you are looking for a DJ service, look no further than Sounds Abound. You will not be disappointed!
July 5th, 2013
We had Kyle as our DJ and he was awesome! We were worried about having a DJ for such an early wedding and reception because we didn't know if people would want to dance in the afternoon. Kyle kept the party going and kept everyone on the dance floor. If people stopped dancing he quickly mixed the song into another one to get people dancing. I higly recommend Sounds Abound. The sound system and music for our wedding was perfect too. Everything was flawless.
March 23, 2013
We chose Kyle Overbey as our DJ because two of our friends had him DJ their wedding. We knew his work and that he did an awesome job at their weddings. When skyping with Kyle, we gave him a few artists that we liked and the style of music we were looking for. He just ran with it. The selection was so unique and eclectic. It was exactly what we wanted! We received so many compliments from our guests at how great the music was and how different it was to most weddings they had been to. There was never a time that our dance floor was empty and that shows how talented Kyle is at reading the crowd. He knew just what to play to make our guests get up and dance. Thanks Kyle for making our wedding the best party ever!

Our experience with Sounds Abound was so incredible and stress free that I almost do not know where to begin. Sounds Abound was very flexible on allowing us to plan our entire event via phone and email, since we live downtown and do not own a car and both have extremely hectic work schedules, this was a HUGE plus. We chose Kyle Overbey as our DJ and we also got the pleasure of working with Rufus, who was our DJ Assistant for the night. We had an outdoor wedding ceremony and the cocktail hour and reception indoors, both Kyle and Rufus were quick and efficient in setting up and moving all of the equipment quickly. Kyle was an absolute pleasure to work with he helped us choose non-traditional wedding music, to make our wedding truly unique to our tastes. He had great advice and ideas to make our wedding ceremony and first dance a truly personalized experience. We knew from our first meeting with Kyle that we could trust his opinion and he would provide a great experience for every guest at our wedding. I HIGHLY recommend Kyle and Sounds Abound to any couple looking to make their wedding day experience, highly personalized and stress free.
First of all, I love that Sounds Abounds has the Online Planner. The Online Planner allowed me to personalize our reception music. I love that they have a "Do Not Play List", where you can place those songs you absolutely despise. Also, throughout our entire experience with Sounds Abounds, their customer service was through the roof. They never hesitated to ask any of my questions and were always so friendly. I even ordered my wedding invitations through them which, turned out better than I could have imagined!
Overall, we had an outstanding experience with Sounds Abounds. During the reception, Kyle didn't skip a beat. When the music I had suggested wasn't as popular as I thought it would be, he switched it up and managed to get everyone at our reception out on the dance floor. He was an amazing DJ!
We are so glad we chose Sounds Abounds!

Kyle and the staff did an incredible job at my son's Bar Mitzvah. The kids had a great time with all of the games, dancing and the photo booth. They knew when to get people going and when to give them a rest. The event flowed with ease.
Thanks for making it look so easy!
April 20, 2013
Kyle was our DJ for our wedding at the beginning of April and we have not stopped getting compliments since! The second the music turned on he had everyone out on the dance floor and it was filled until the end of the night! He also helped MC throughout the evening so everyone knew exactly what was going on from bridal party intros, first dances & even letting people know about late-night snacks! I would suggest using Kyle and the Sounds Abound team for any event you may have, they were wonderful!
April 6, 2013
Kyle was truly fantastic! Our wedding was the best day of my entire life and Kyle helped make the reception perfect. The dance floor was full the entire night and we could not have had a better time. Thank you!

"Kyle and his assistant did a great job the night of the wedding. There were always people on the dance floor and our guests raved about the DJs. Kyle always took into consideration what our guests requested and our wedding even had a theme song to the evening, thanks to 'Call me maybe'! Thank you for making our wedding a fabulous and fun filled night!"

Jaci & Wayne – November 23, 2012

Julie & Ryan – October 19, 2012
“I just wanted to let you know how happy Ryan and I were with Kyle & Michael at our wedding. Kyle was wonderful! He made sure we had everything we wanted at our wedding and went out of his way to fulfill our requests.I have two friends that stood up in the wedding that are getting married next year and they thought your DJs were great so I am sure they will be using your company as well. Thank you again!”
Catherine & Danny – October 13, 2012
“My husband, Danny, and I had our wedding on October 13, 2012 at the Hyatt Lodge in the Grand Oaks Pavilion. We are still raving about how great Kyle and Kevin were all night. They played the best music and kept coming up to us asking if we needed anything. Not only did they DJ…but they were so fun too! The music totally made the night amazing and we cannot thank Kyle and Kevin enough for their outstanding service and entertainment! Everything was GREAT!”
Gina & Mike – October 6, 2012
” You guys really hit a home run with our wedding. Thank you so much. The additional uplighting that Kyle had set up really made a difference and he really guided us through the whole night in a fashion that was easy to do and also allowed Gina and I to have a ton of fun at our wedding. The music was great and the dance floor was jammed all night long. I really can not tell you how relieving it is that we didn’t have to worry about anything. Additionally Kyle was right on point in working hand and hand with our event coordinator so that Gina and I could just really enjoy our day. thank you again and you go out highly recommended to any of our friends and family the may require your services.”
Jorjann & John – September 8, 2012
Kyle conducted the DJ services for my wedding on 8 September 2012. It was an absolutely fantastic experience. We first met Kyle at my sister’s wedding on 8 September 2007. It was a great time and all the guests loved it. When planning our wedding, I knew that I wanted Sounds Abound, and Kyle came well recommended. Our wedding was an absolute blast. We had a wide age range, and we wanted EVERYONE on the dance floor. We had been to weddings where it seems like a ‘club,’ and that is not what we wanted. Kyle catered to everyone, making sure, young, old, and even the ‘non-dancers’ were out having a great time. Also, we had many ‘unique requests.’ We did a interesting garter dance with props and ‘an army assault’ (we are all in the army) and Kyle was able to narrate without any problem. The whole night was filled with experiences like that, and Kyle handled it all like a professional. We had so much fun. The night was full of laughs, fun and everybody stayed on the dance floor until the absolute last minute that the music played. I have already recommended him to friends. We want to express our gratitude for making our wedding night an unforgettable experience!”
Katrina & Brian – August 25, 2012
“Kyle picked AWESOME music to play at our reception! I heard multiple people comment on how much they liked the music, what a great DJ he was, and how much fun they had. Your service is wonderful, I felt taken care of every step of the way.”
Melissa & Jared – July 21, 2012
“Kyle and his assistant did a great job the night of the wedding. There were always people on the dance floor and our guests raved about the DJs. Kyle always took into consideration what our guests requested and our wedding even had a theme song to the evening, thanks to ‘Call me maybe’! Thank you for making our wedding a fabulous and fun filled night!”
Marissa & Dave – Mary (MOB) – July 14, 2012
“Kyle. Thank you so much for being “awesome” at my daughter’s wedding! People were asking me on the dance floor “who is this DJ?” The crowd loved you and you did exactly what we asked, which was keep everyone dancing all night! Thanks again, you were great to work with and I will highly recommend Sounds Abound. You rock!”
Meghan & Christopher – June 16, 2012
“My husband and I were referred to Sounds Abound through a wedding showcase at our vendor (Arrowhead Golf Club in Wheaton). We could not be happier with our choice! We chose Kyle as our DJ. Kyle has great energy, he kept everyone entertained and dancing the whole night! My husband and I hate being the center of attention so when we met with Kyle a few weeks before the wedding he had no problem agreeing to cut the first dance, father/daughter, and mother/son, music when we wanted with a smooth transition. Kyle also provided the music at our ceremony and the microphones. The music sounded great and the microphones remained clear despite the wind. Sounds Abound offers an online planner so that you can enter song you want played or you definitely do not want played. We also got the traditional photobooth, which was a big hit! We used the pictures in our guestbook. The guests definitely enjoyed taking unlimited pictures for 4 hours and using all the props provided! Great experience, great service! Highly recommend this group, especially Kyle.”
Kristen & Tom – June 15, 2012
“Kyle, Thank you for helping to make our wedding night so special and so FUN! We could not have went with a better company, or a better MC. You are so energetic and awesome at reading the crowd! You were truly a perfect match for our wedding! Our guests continuously tell us what fun they had and what great music we had. We often hear our wedding was the best they have ever been to. Thank you for this! I knew right from the start Sounds Abound would be Awesome. Thank you for proving my intuition rights. Also, Thank you for the amazing and unique father/daughter dance. That made the night Super Special. (P.S. We are on youtube!). Thank you , thank you, thank you!!”
Lauren & Matt – May 26, 2012
“We are so glad that we booked DJ services with you. Our wedding was awesome because of all that you did. The music was perfect and our guests are still talking about ‘the best wedding ever!’ Not only was the music great but Kyle and all of the staff we worked with went above and beyond to make our wedding amazing. Our invitations were fantastic, got a lot of compliments in them. The lighting you provided made the dance floor look great. The photo booth was a blast for everyone and we love how the guest book turned out. Also thank you for hooking us up with the mic for our pastor during the ceremony. You guys did so much for us and we have nothing but good things to say and we will for sure recommend your services to anyone in the future.”
Miranda & Nick – May 18, 2012
“At the beginning, the ceremony was delayed because the venue’s sound system wasn’t turned on. Kyle worked with the venue’s maintenance staff to get it working again, while also setting up his own speakers (that were not supposed to be needed) as a backup plan. We really appreciate the extra effort from Kyle to ensure our ceremony started off on the right foot and I think this was an excellent example of what kind of service to expect from Sounds Abound. Thanks again!! One of the factors that played a huge role in selecting you was that we could listen to each MC’s video on your website to get a feel for who we liked best. They’re really something that sets Sounds Abound apart from other wedding DJ/MCs.”
Rachel & Alex’s Bar & Bar Mitzvah Event – Jane (Mother) – May 12, 2012
“The service was excellent! Kyle and the staff kept the children consistently engaged! The photo booth was a huge hit!!! This was our third time using Sounds Abound and we will continue to recommend your business to anyone needing DJ and other related services!!!”
Carrie & Louis – March 31, 2012
“Kyle did an excellent job with our music selection. We could not have been happier with the selection for the entire event from cocktail hour to the last song. He made our wedding memorable and we are extremely grateful. Kyle kept our guests dancing until the very last song. I will be happy to recommend Sounds Abound to future couples!”
Crystal C. – The Wedding Guide Chicago – WedBash 2012 – March 28, 2012
“It was a wonderful experience to work with Sounds Abound for our event. The ambiance created by Kyle was superb!”
Deanne – Herrington Inn Holiday Party – February 12, 2012
“Everything was Wonderful!!! Kyle was amazing! I can only hope he is still a DJ when my daughter gets married! She is only 10 now SO we have many years! But he is great!!”
Lori & Jamie – January 2, 2012
“We only had 3 months to plan this wedding. Cantigny highly recommended Sounds Abound for DJ services. We were pleasantly surprised to find that we could also book a photographer and photo booth at the same time and we got a great package deal. Kyle was helpful to us throughout the process. We gave him our music suggestions and he took it from there and we loved the music at the reception. His father Ken did the Family Feud game and our guests loved it – they are still talking about how much fun they had at the reception. Jerry was a great photographer. He made everything fun and we are anxious to see the photos – I am sure they will be great. Thanks again for making our day so special! I will recommend you highly to anyone planning a wedding – and I will see you again when my daughters get married!”
Maggie & Ryan – December 17, 2011
“I had very high expectations for a wedding DJ and Kyle was fantastic! He listened carefully to our goals for the wedding reception and created a perfect playlist for the night. Everyone was dancing and having a blast. When an 85 year-old grandma is dancing to Cee Lo Green, it’s a successful party!”
Shea & John – November 5, 2011
“Kyle was awesome- he kept people dancing all night- the dance floor was never empty. He played everyone’s requests and really turned our wedding night into a party. Kyle really knows his music and is great at telling when the mood in the room changes and to switch up the songs. Good music can make or break the night and it was definitely a great night. Thank you, Kyle and Sounds Abound for all you did for our wedding reception- it could not have been any more perfect! I’d recommend you to anyone in need of a great DJ/photobooth!”
Lisa & Chris – October 8, 2011
“We are so pleased with our decision to hire Sounds Abound to DJ our wedding. We were going off of a referral, and we’re glad we did! Kyle our DJ was amazing! He was extremely attentive and made sure we didn’t have to worry about a thing, and we didn’t! We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ. He was energetic and played the best music that kept everyone on the dance floor all night, and sometimes that’s hard to do. It’s a week later and we’re still getting compliments about how great the music was! We also had a photo booth as well, and Kevin our attendant was great! He was very friendly and had a great attitude, and was just a joy to have at our wedding. Jeff also provided the best service possible in the weeks/months prior to our wedding to get all the details together. He was very organized and made the process flawless. Thank you Sounds Abound for making our wedding one of the best ever! I would definitely recommend Sounds Abound to anyone who needs a DJ or photo booth! Everything was great and flawless!”
Amanda & Brendan – October 1, 2011
“Best vendor choice we picked for our wedding! People were on the dance floor all night and complimented the music over and over! Couldn’t have asked for anything better from a dj! I think it was a great experience start to finish. It was nice being able to meet with Kyle numerous times if needed and he was very helpful! Also so was the staff.”
Liz & Nathan – September 18, 2011
“Kyle was excellent to work with, and I can’t say enough good things about you guys! Thank you so much!”
Ashley & John – September 4, 2011
“From the first time we walked into Sounds Abound we were happy with the customer service & friendliness. Our wedding was beyond AMAZING much in part to the OUTSTANDING MC of our night, Kyle. Kyle was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, organized, and exceeded all of our expectations! Kyle was hands down the best DJ I have ever heard & was so friendly & easy to work with I felt 100% comfortable turning over the party to him. I could not have asked for a better DJ (or company for that matter) to work with. I work with a lot of brides & will be referring not only Kyle but Sounds Abound to EVERYONE!”
Mandi & Adam – September 3, 2011
“We cannnot say enough good things about our Sounds Abound DJs! We had Kyle and Rufus for our reception and they were a blast! The music was great, the dance floor was packed, and everyone even the grandparents were up out of their chairs and having fun!! Kyle was on the floor teaching people some dances and it was fun for us to watch and participate. The two of them made our reception such a success and we would recommend them to anyone!! Thanks also to the fantastic office staff for their great customer service and how easy they made booking and planning our reception! It was all so great!”
Elisabeth & Jared (Afternoon Wedding) – September 3, 2011
“From the very beginning the staff was extremely professional, personable, accommodating, and genuine. I had originally booked with a DJ from another company. After feeling uneasy about the business interaction I was referred to Sounds Abound through my venue and I am so glad that we canceled our first vender and went with SA. Sounds Abound was not pushy and made me feel comfortable when I went to meet their staff without my fiance present. Professional, affordable, and absolutely fantastic! Kyle was so knowledgeable about the classics which my husband requested. Our guests made multiple comments on the great music selections – there was something for everyone to enjoy. For our luncheon reception, we expected that there would be more socializing than dancing. We wanted guests to have a great time whether they got on the dance floor or not. Our guests are still commenting on what a great day they had celebrating with us! Kyle was a personable MC through the introductions and an involved DJ when it came time for dancing. He even got out to dance with the guests when they needed some encouragement! If you want someone who knows the classics from before your time and is in with the current trends of music – Choose Kyle! Your expectations will be far exceeded.”
Jamie & Casey – August 19, 2011
“Kyle was an excellent DJ. He was polite and professional and kept everything on track according to our schedule. I also received several compliments on the music selection at the wedding. We asked Kyle to do whatever was necessary to keep people on the dance floor, and he certainly accomplished that.”
Dana & Steve – August 14, 2011
“Kyle and his assistant were Great! They played great music, got the crowd into it and they were very fun!!”
Sarah & Ian – July 23, 2011
“Kyle Overbey was an AMAZING DJ! He made the planning of our wedding reception music so easy and fun. He walked us through everything. I loved the online planner which made it convenient and easy to choose all of our music. The night of our reception everything ran smoothly. Kyle did a great job keeping everyone out on the dance floor and really followed what type of music the crowd wanted. I was so happy with his expertise and fun loving nature!! I would highly recommend Kyle to anyone looking for a DJ. He is truly a pro!”

Vicki & Tom – April 16, 2011
“Couldn’t possibly have been any better…even through a DJ change required by a DJ resignation…unbelievable service. Improvements for the future: Not sure it’s possible!”
Christy & Michael – March 12, 2011
“We loved everything about Sounds Abound. Kyle did the best job ever. And we plan on using Sound Abound again.”
Alyssa’s Bat Mitzvah – Rogie S. (Mother) – February 5, 2011
“Kyle, Thank you again very much for such a wonderful job from first contact to final song with my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. We received the disk with the photo booth pix. This is great since my daughter is a scrapbook queen. She is going nuts making a memory book with just the pix from that one disc. I wish you all the best in years to come!”
Tina & Kevin – January 29, 2011
“To all the brides and grooms to be- if you like to have fun, you want you guests to have fun, and you want to dance the night away at your wedding, book Kyle to be your DJ!! Kyle was so easy to work with and was so helpful throughout our music planning period. Come wedding day, he took care of everything!! We were so busy interacting with everyone and we were on cloud 9…we would never have been able to coordinate what needed to get done, and did not want just anyone to take control of our evening. Thankfully Kyle knows exactly what to do and everything went along seamlessly! We didn’t have to worry about a thing and I did not leave the dance floor once, and neither did our guests. At one point, our dance floor was so full you could barely find a spot! This was my number one wish- I wanted my dance floor full to the brim, I wanted to celebrate, and I wanted our guests to have the times of their lives. This was all made possible because of Kyle! He read our crowd perfectly and made a fun, full dance floor possible. He made our wedding day even more perfect and everything we had ever dreamed of. Every single person we have talked to has said what a blast our wedding was! It was truly the best day of our entire lives and Kyle definitely accentuated that. Thank you for being so great!! I suggest you book Kyle if you want the most perfect wedding reception!!”
Adrienne & Eric – December 10, 2010
“Kyle was an excellent DJ!”
Laurel & Chris – November 27, 2010
“Loved that Kyle got on the dance floor with the guest and showed them the steps to the different line dances. Did a great job of getting people onto the dance floor.”
Theresa & Josh – October 30, 2010
“I absolutely loved the DJ services at my wedding! Every single on of my guests complimented me on how great of a DJ Kyle was. Kyle was an amazing DJ, he met all my requests and he was enthusiastic and excited about my wedding. He was easy to contact and get in touch with and returned my emails and phone calls promptly. Would absolutely recommend to friends and family. You guys have perfected the art and are great people to do business with!”
Marcy & Daniel – October 9, 2010
“I thought the perfect suggested music was picked for the passing of the veil. It was nice that DJ tried to tell the crowd of our wishes. We thought Kyle was fun and energetic, played great music, friendly, and overall really made the night…we got a lot of great compliments on the music and the DJ.”
Mariel & Kyle – October 8, 2010
“We absolutely loved our experience with Kyle and Sounds Abound. The people here are very nice and willing to help with anything. I wasn’t the best customer because I kept changing my mind and waiting until the very last minute to make all my final choices. The staff was understanding, never once complained, and helped me with any changes that needed to be made. I have spread the word to all of my engaged friends and would reccommend them to everyone! Improvements for the future: I’m not sure, there is so much you guys already have done, its as if you are way ahead of the game. The online instant chats are so helpful and a great way of having help available to your customers. Just keep on doing what you do and you guys will stay great!”
Annie & Brian – September 24, 2010
“We could not have had a better DJ that fit with the type of wedding we had. We are grateful for the experience we had with Kyle and everyone is still telling us what a great time they had.”
Danielle & Kris – September 18, 2010
“Kris and I were more than satisfied with our whole experience with the company and staff. You made sure we understood the entire process and were there for us every step of the way. Honestly, Kyle helped our wedding day flow so smoothly without any hiccups. We even had some tricky names to pronounce..you should have seen the look on some of our bridal party’s faces- no one every pronounces their names correct, but Kyle did. During the wedding Kyle came to us several times to make sure he was on the same page as us. Everyone loved the music selection-some songs we didn’t even chose and we were so happy with it all. We put all of our trust in Kyle’s hands and he did not let us down once. He allowed us to make changes, even at the last minute and had no problem with it. We can’t say thank you enough for the great service from Kyle and the rest of the staff. You can’t beat the price we paid for the outstanding service we received. P.S. Thanks for bringing the extra lights w/ no cost to us…it looked awesome!! We will recommend you guys to anyone we know looking for a DJ!! Keep doing what you do!!!”
Tiffany & Lawrence – September 12, 2010
“I never got a chance to thank Kyle at the end of the night, and I feel terrible! He and his assistant did a fantastic job and managed to keep the dance floor going strong to the very end. Kyle was both a great DJ and fantastic MC, which made our lives so much easier. Thank you Kyle and Sounds Abound for being such an integral part of our wedding day.”
Amanda & Brad – September 3, 2010
“If I could rate you higher than Excellent I would! My husband and I were so impressed with Kyle, words cannot express how happy we are. You and your staff made our wedding awesome! Kyle was great in every way. I never worried for a moment during our receptions. Greg was awesome at our ceremony! I will tell everyone to use Sounds Abound for any occasion! Thank you for everything! Keep up the great work you guys and gals are awesome!”
Erin & Andy – August 6, 2010
“Kyle was great! We got so many compliments from our guests on how great the DJ was. We were very happy with our selection! Thank you Sounds Abound!! :)”
Julie & Rodrigo – July 31, 2010
“Our experience was fantastic. Great music selections, interactions, and one-on-one service for not only the bride and groom but also the guests.”
Beth & Jerry – July 18, 2010
“Kyle was absolutely wonderful!!! He helped make the night perfect for myself and my husband and all our guests… He kept everyone out on the dance floor and made sure the night was running smoothly for everyone… He went above and beyond what I would expect from any DJ and I will be recommending him to anyone and everyone that ever needs a DJ!!! Thank you soooo much for making our wedding night magical and everything we could of dreamed of!!! Everything was perfect and amazing!!! Keep up the good work!!!”
Elizabeth & Drew – June 25, 2010
“We were so happy with Sounds Abound. You were referred to us from several friends who had used you in the past. Kyle was so friendly and went out of his way to find some special songs we had requested. He made sure he checked with us throughout the night to see how things were going. We were extremely pleased with the entire evening and would recommend Sounds Abound to anyone in need of a DJ!”
Jenny & Brian – June 13, 2010
“After getting engaged, we quickly asked a friend which DJ she had, because her wedding was AMAZING. She recommended Sounds Abound. From the moment we contacted Sounds Abound, we knew that we were in good hands. Whether it was our initial meeting, questions we had throughout the process, or the day of the wedding, you were there to put our minds at ease. Kyle met with us and made sure that our wedding went exactly as we planned (even triple checking the pronunciation of our wedding party). During the actual reception he played exactly what we asked. Our guests commented several times during dinner about how great the music was…they had no idea what was about to happen. Once the dance floor opened Kyle made sure that it never cleared out. We had over three straight hours of a packed dance floor. He was able to read the mood of the crowd, and would make sure to please everyone. My wife and I were able to go up to him with any requests (and there were some odd ones), and he accommodated immediately knowing that it was what we wanted. We could not have asked for a better experience. Our wedding day turned out even better than we could have imagined, and Kyle and Mitch made that happen. We had so many people come up to us after the wedding and asked who our DJ was, and even three weeks later when we see people all they talk about was how they have never seen a DJ keep so many people out on the dance floor. I would recommend Sounds Abound (and specifically Kyle) for ANY event. He truly focuses on what the hosts of the party want. Whether it is classic and clean, or a huge dance party, Sounds Abound will make it happen. Thanks for everything! Keep doing what you are doing.”
Lisa & George – June 2, 2010
“Kyle was TERRIFIC! Great music for a great price! Thank you for making my daughter’s party a lot of fun!!”
Krissy & Greg – May 29, 2010
“Our wedding was 4 months ago and people are still saying how awesome the music and DJ were and what a great time they had! Thanks!”
Theresa & Ryan – May 22, 2010
“Comments on overall experience: Kyle was AMAZING!!!! Everyone still talks about how great he was at our wedding and how the dancing lasted ALL night long! I was so impressed on how well he managed the dance floor and got everyone, even my Grandma who has not stepped on a dance floor since her wedding, dancing to just about every song!!! I could not have asked or wished for a better DJ. Kyle surpassed my expectations of the music played, I don’t think there was one bad song all night. We gave him a short list of our favorites and he came up with the rest! Kyle was so professional, courteous, energetic, polite, respectful, and most importantly a blast to have around! I would recommend Kyle to anyone and everyone, hands down! He made our night memorable and unforgettable!! I can’t say enough to describe his work in the music industry! Thank you Kyle, for making our wedding so special! I would also like to thank the staff at Sounds About! The service my husband and I received ordering invitations and picking out all the little extras, was also the best we had experienced! Everyone was so nice, helpful, polite, and professional! Thank you Kyle, thank you to everyone at Sounds Abound!”
Molly & Jason – May 1, 2010
“Sounds Abound did an excellent job setting the perfect mood at every stage of the night. From the elegant uplighting during dinner to the professional dance club lighting, the scene was always set just right. Our DJ Kyle’s great taste in music and impeccable timing got the whole crowd out on the dance floor and his contagious enthusiasm kept them dancing with us the entire night. We would NOT recommend Sounds Abound for your wedding DJ services… WE WOULD INSIST ON IT!”
Samantha & Mike – April 11, 2010
“Kyle made sure we were enjoying ourselves and had excellent communication. I would definitely recommend him again. Sounds Abound did great!”
Erin – Eagle Point Elementary School Daddy Daughter Dance – February 6, 2010
“Kyle was an awesome DJ and he really got the entire crowd of Dad’s and Daughter’s dancing! I will definitely recommend using Sounds Abound in the future. Thanks!”
Erica & Andy – December 5, 2009
“Kyle Overbey was a fantastic DJ. We met him to discuss our preferences for the reception and he did everything we asked and more!! I can’t tell you how important the selection of a dj is for a reception and we were immensely pleased with Sounds Abound!! Thank you Kyle for making our wedding reception fun and memorable!!! ”
Kelly & Kevin – November 21, 2009
“Kyle was one of the best DJ’s we have ever experienced. I kid you not, from the time he introduced himself to the point at which he said goodnight, there was not one time where he was nothing but fun, entertaining, professional, and most of all captivating. We have been to many wedding, and I can say I can’t remember when the dance floor was packed from start to finish the entire night. He chose great music and kept people dancing, a difficult task since there ages from 3 to 83 there. We have had so many people ask if we know a good DJ to use, we usually say no, but we have a great one we can refer. Thank you Kyle for an absolutely memorable event.”
Natalie & Mark – October 3, 2009
“Kyle did an amazing job keeping our dance floor packed all night long. Everyone had a great time especially the bride and groom and we are still hearing rave reviews of how AWESOME our music and DJ were. Thanks so much for making our special day extremely memorable and the talk of the town.”
Toni & Chris – September 19, 2009
“Good Experience. All that we covered in the pre-party meeting was done. Also, Kyle was very responsive to my needs when I wanted a song cut and another faded in.”
Rose & Robert – September 12, 2009
“Was a great great day! Things flowed well. Kyle responded instantly to tiny changes that kept the people dancing all night long!”
Lyndsay & Dan – August 22, 2009
“We receieved SO MANY compliments on your services. Kyle was absolutely amazing and we couldn’t have asked for a better MC/DJ for our big day. We are recommending Kyle and the Sounds Abound team to every Bride and Groom we know! Your attention to detail is amazing and we truly felt like Kyle really knew us, our relationship and our style. It was a perfect reflection of “us”. Thank you so much! The compliments are still pouring in about how packed the dance floor was all night. All of our friends and family said it was the BEST wedding they’ve ever attended and, well we think it was the best wedding ever too! (We are a little biast though) Thanks again!”
Janine & Josh – July 11, 2009
“Everything was done professionally and the staff was very friendly. Kyle did a fantastic job at our wedding. We couldn’t have picked a better DJ! I would highly recommend Sounds Abound and Kyle to anyone looking to book a high quality DJ for their special event. Everything worked well.”
Amy & Tony – July 10, 2009
“Thanks a lot for a great time! We have heard nothing but positive comments!”
Lisa & Mark – June 27, 2009
“We are very pleased with our choice of Kyle as our DJ. We had a bump in the road when the power went out during the reception but Kyle stayed later than planned to make up for the lost time – he handled the situation very well. The dance floor was always full, and when everyone started leaving for one song he quickly changed it to get people back up there. We also liked that he was dancing and really into it as well, I’ve had guests make comments about that too. The online planner was nice to have so we could make song selections at home. Overall- VERY happy with everything.”
Angie & Mitchell – June 13, 2009
“Sounds Abound was amazing to work with!! We loved being able to fill out the online forms with the songs we wanted played and did not want played at our reception. Sounds Abound made the planning process so easy for us by calling us a few times to check up on things. I would recommend Sounds Abound to anyone!! 🙂 Also, our DJ Kyle Overbey was great to work with! He played great music and really got people on the dance floor! Kyle made the night so relaxing for my husband and I! He took care of everything!”
Lauren & Cory – May 30, 2009
“Sounds Abound really made our wedding fantastic. Jeff and Joanne made our planning process very simple and easy, especially since we were planning from out of state. They were kind enough to check in periodically and work around our busy schedule. When it came to our wedding day, Kyle was fantastic! He listened to us and really played off of the crowd. Our dance floor full the entire night. Kyle and his assistant made our night perfect and our guests kept complimenting us on the DJ. Thank you for making our day fantastic! ”
David Sigma Alpha Epsilon Formal- April 4, 2009
“Sounds Abound made the process very easy to set up and the DJ, Kyle helped make the night a huge success! Thank you very much and if we are back in Chicago for next year’s formal you can bet we’ll call you guys again!”
Tracy & Steve – January 17, 2009
“Sounds Abound Exceeded our expectations. The staff there was very professional and helpful; they really made this aspect of the wedding planning something that I didn’t have to worry about.”
Kristin & Mike – December 20, 2008
“Kyle did everything we had hoped he would. He brought energy and excitement to our wedding, and he had the floor packed with dancers from start until finish. I don’t plan on having another wedding, but I hope to have Kyle DJ my next big event!”
Julie & Tim – November 15, 2008
“Kyle did a great job and we had a blast. Everything was perfect. Thanks!”
Jessica’s Bat Mitzvah Tammy / Mother- November 1, 2008
“The party was excellent! My daughter Jessica was receiving text messages just minutes after the party letting her know it was the best party ever. I know some of the kids are trying to plan the next party and hire Kyle again. Kyle related well to the kids and they never left the dance floor. I was amazed that he was able to keep the group occupied for so many hours. I am very pleased with your staff and would recommend them to anyone.”
Kristen & Chris – October 25, 2008
“We initially picked a DJ that ended up quitting and all of our other choices happened to be already taken. We ended up choosing Kyle Overbey and the funny part is that he had recently changed his video and had that been the video we saw from the start he would have been our first choice hands down. He was AWESOME! Not cheesy at all, very professional, right on top of things, and played the music we wanted to hear. He was emailing me before the wedding seeing if I needed anything, which was helpful because there are so many things to do. He was very good about letting us know when the next thing was going to happen and stayed in close contact with our photographer as well to make sure she was ready for all the important photos. I would not hesitate to recommend him at all! He does look very young but is very professional and was very flexible when we changed things last minute! Very reliable seeing he is the son of the owner of the company!”
Stephanie & Dean – October 4, 2008
“Kyle was Excellent! Our dance floor was packed the entire night! He didn’t just play music… he made the reception a fun celebration for everyone! I will recommend Sounds Abound to all of my friends and family!”
Kate & Avery – September 26, 2008
“It was absolutely wonderful. You guys are great and thank you for everything!”
Jennifer & Brian – September 20, 2008
“….we couldn’t have had a better experience. Kyle was professional, friendly and a great dancer! He truly kept the night going. The dance floor was constantly packed, which says a lot for him, as most of our friends don’t dance normally. Even my husband and myself don’t typically dance and I think we only missed maybe 5 songs the whole night. I wouldn’t hesitate for one second recommending Sounds Abound or Kyle and Nico to anyone! Even the event location’s manager wrote down Kyle’s name to pass on as a recommendation. You exceeded our expectations and are truly fantastic! We appreciate all that Kyle and Sounds Abound did to make our day special.”
Jennifer & Tim – September 13, 2008
“What a great process from beginning to end! Jeff Wells was great to work with during the planning phase and Kyle did a great job at our wedding. He had the dance floor packed from the minute it was open. We would recommend Sounds Abound to anyone in the market for a DJ. Great work.”
Valerie & Joe – September 5, 2008
“I couldn’t be happier with the staff and our DJ, Kyle at the wedding. I had so many questions and worries and everyone was so nice and helpful. Thank you.”
Julie & Robert – July 19, 2008
“Kyle was amazing and all of our guests enjoyed his positive attitude and DJ abilities. The dance floor was full the entire night!”
Bob (Father of the Bride) – May 18, 2008

Cathy & Keith – May 17, 2008

We had such a wonderful wedding and everyone had such a great time! Thank you so much for making our night so much fun! I would highly recommend Kyle to anyone who is looking for a DJ! He did an awesome job! ”
Bobbie & Joe – May 10, 2008
