Steve DrewsSounds Abound DJ and Master of Ceremonies
Music has been a central part of my life since I was very young, being my family’s DJ every morning when I was growing up. I officially started DJing and MCing events when I was 12, building a DJ company in eastern Wisconsin that played school events, car shows, and weddings. After graduating high school, I continued to DJ and MC while attending college, working for Ashland, WI’s WJJH 96.7 FM as their morning radio personality and station meteorologist as well as DJ for WJJH’s Music Machine DJ Service. After graduating college and moving to Kansas, I joined one of the state’s most-respected and largest DJ companies, Advanced DJ Service. I was given the opportunity to combine my love of music and weather on a daily basis, becoming known throughout Kansas on the radio air waves and at weddings, school dances, and corporate events as “Stormin’ Steve”. My weather career brought me to Chicago 5 years later, and my DJ passion brought me to the Sounds Abound family.
My philosophy has remained the same since I was a young DJ and MC – to make your event uniquely yours, completely stress-free, and lots of fun! My full dedication to your special event combined with my vast musical knowledge and experience with audio and lighting equipment, event coordination, public speaking, and on-the-fly flexibility will make for an event that you and your guests will be talking about for years to come!

We hired Steve from Sounds Abound from our wedding off of a recommendation and it was the best decision! Steve kept the dance floor alive! There was never a dull moment. His fun and energetic voice really kept the guests engaged at the reception. He made sure we heard all our favorite songs!

Steve Drews was our DJ and he was absolutely amazing! He met with us in person prior to the wedding to get to know Jeff and I and learned more about what we were looking for. The entire evening he was on point! He kept the crowd on the dance floor from start to finish! It was so amazing to see how music really made people come alive! His personality lit up the space. We will for sure use him in the future! XOXO

Our wedding ended up being AMAZING – Steve did such a fantastic job; our dance floor was completely packed the entire night. To the point where the last hour or so people were dancing around the dance floor because it was so full. We got so many compliments on how great the music was. We cannot thank him enough for making himself available to us!!
