Tadd's Bio

Hello and thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to consider me for your next event. My name is Tadd Wenman and I have been a musician playing bass, guitar, and singing for almost 8 years. I have made music a large part of my life playing live and rehearsing with numerous bands. I am very committed to making your event the best I can. I am one of the younger DJs in the company, but have had the great opportunity to study under almost all of the other DJs. I pride myself in my knowledge of music, both new and old, and am looking forward to making your event a party to remember.

What Clients Say About Tadd

DJs Who Care

Our DJ was Tadd. He was exceptional! We had our meeting and described the sort of music we wanted, gave some examples, and Tadd lead the ceremony in a great night of dancing. He took the time to check with my bride and I several times throughout the night to see if we needed anything and keep us informed. He hit all of our must plays and added a couple on the fly that we thought of in the moment. I honestly cannot think of one thing that could have gone more perfectly. Tadd was a huge part of making our special night full of great memories and I would strongly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Tadd

I couldn't have asked for a better company to work with for our wedding! Everyone was wonderful to work with: accommodating, helpful, and made the process so easy. Tadd, our DJ, was the BEST! He did an amazing job and had everyone on the dance floor all night. Thank you!!

Tadd from Sounds Abound made our wedding on September 6th incredible!  Planning a wedding is stressful, but after setting up a meeting a month prior to the big day with Tadd we were immediately put at ease about the DJ and music portion.  Tadd is extremely professional, has a great personality, has a deep knowledge of music, and was amazing at reading the dance floor.  He kept my wife and I informed of the timing of everything once we arrived at the cocktail hour but was never pushy about it.  He even did a great job of keep our huge wedding party in order, which I thought would have been impossible.  To top it all off, the dance floor was never empty!  Not for a second!  He kept the older generation tapping their feet (some even dancing) and the younger guests stayed on the dance floor all night.  Tadd did an amazing job and I can't thank him and Sounds Abound enough for making our wedding reception a huge success!
Thanks for everything and best of luck!

You guys did a great job from the initial set up to the final steps of being at the reception on time and responding to our requests and making us feel relaxed.

One of my biggest concerns in the wedding planning process was finding a DJ who was a balance between a fun presence and not being too over the top. I cannot give enough praise about the wonderful experience we had with Sounds Abound and our DJ Tadd. I loved the online planner and being able to take my time to compile lists of my favorite songs. I made my own slideshow and it was great to be able to hand off the DVD and not worry about personally figuring out the projector. My guests could not believe how perfect the music was, both during dinner and dancing. People kept telling me that they couldn't even find time to leave the dance floor for a drink refill because every song was a hit. Tadd did so much more than just play music. He was so organized and attentive to the flow of the whole night and checking in with me to make sure I was pleased with everything. I want to find a reason to throw another party and hire Sounds Abound again! And last but not least, a great price too!

Tadd was great and made sure the introductions and announcements went smoothly. He was professional, organized, and relaxed, but was able to keep the bridal party excited and the dance floor consistently filled. He was also able to play appropriate music when we gave him vague genre suggestions and not specific songs. Good work and I'd recommend him.

Natalie & Mike – September 29, 2012

“Sounds Abound was easy to work with and Tad did a great job incorporating my music selection with his own to create a fun party atmosphere. We had to replace our DJ at the last minute and Sounds Abound made the transition stress free.”

Lauren & Matt – September 1, 2012

“It was amazing! It was exactly what we wanted. Tadd was fun, interactive, and played good music all night long. He kept the dance floor packed all night. We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ experience! Thank you!”

Amy & Kyle- July 20, 2012

“I am soooo happy with Sounds Abound. The office staff was great to work with. Tadd was an awesome DJ. He was very helpful the few days before the wedding and the day of he helped make light of situations. The dance floor was PACKED all night long. People are still coming to me to tell me that they never danced that much at a wedding before. My Boss even danced! He was everything we could have asked for and more in a DJ. I plan on recommending him to all of my friends that get married 🙂 THANKS TADD!”

“I just wanted to say Frank and I had a great time at our wedding, and I am so happy for the excellent service we received from Sounds Abound! Tadd was an outstanding DJ- he was very professional and responded quickly to all my questions and concerns. He made our reception so fun and exciting. We had a great variety of music for the whole crowd, and I don’t think there was a song where someone wasn’t on the dance floor!”

Thank you again for making our day extra special. I will certainly be recommending Sounds Abound and Tadd to all my friends and family who have upcoming events!

Michelle & Jeff – December 18, 2010

“Tadd has done three of our family weddings now. We told him what we really didn’t want and he used his best judgment on what should be played. It was great because no one was sitting down. I truly would recommend your company as well as Tad as a DJ. Thank you for making it so easy. Thanks for the great music at our wedding. It was awesome.”

Christina – FIC America – December 11, 2010

“This was the 2nd event that we used Sounds Abound & we were very happy with the music selection & the services that you provide. Tadd was a great DJ. He was very informative of how the night would run & was open to all suggestions.”

Rebecca & Jeffrey – November 6, 2010

“Even as my wife and I were running around greeting our guests during the reception, Tadd kept us informed of and prepared for the order and time of events (it’s easy to lose track of things!).”

Amy & Tom – October 9, 2010

“I am so so so happy with Sounds Abound and our DJ for our wedding who was Tadd. He was awesome!!! He did such a great job, and was such a nice person.

Mary Ann (Daughter’s Birthday Party) – January 29, 2010

“The entire process was hassle free. Everything from booking the event, to planning the music, to the set-up and execution. It was wonderful! Tadd interacted with the guests and they loved it! Days later our guests told us it was the best party they attended. It had everything to do with the atmosphere created by Sounds Abound. What a blast!!!”

Angela & Billy – October 17, 2009

“Our wedding was a success in part to the wonderful experience we had with Tadd, our Sounds Abound DJ. Everyone at the office was friendly, easy-going, and helpful. I liked that you communicated with me mostly through email, but made phone calls when necessary. I also like that you didn’t try to be too pushy or send out mass emails. Everyone had such a blast at our reception because of the awesome DJing of Tadd! Rock on!! :D”

Kelly & Nick – August 7, 2009

“I just wanted to take a few minutes to email you on how happy we were with Tadd and his helper. Our wedding was on 08/07/2009 and a lot of little things seemed to go wrong, my tux after it was already fixed once, they forgot to hem one leg so one was 8 inches to long, we were supposed to get married outside and it rained so we had to go inside, the shuttle got lost on the way to the ceremony from the hotel so we had to wait 30 min, the golf course forgot the runner, the flower lady forgot flowers for the cake and the parents of the groom, the photographers batteries died in the middle of shooting. With all of this said and done a lot went wrong. What went right was Tadd and how he helped us get in a good mood, and get the party going. I know people were little flustered with how long dinner took, and how late we got going. Most weddings I have been to take a while for people to get comfortable and get out on the dance floor and as the night goes on people get out on the floor. Not our wedding, as soon as the music started Tadd got everyone up and on the floor until he had to call it a night after midnight and after we convinced him to play one more song 5 times ha. He was very accommodating, professional, and polite to my wife and everyone at the wedding. He even came and got our drink order at the head table and asked us numerous times what he could do to help. All in all this was a great experience and many people asked where we heard of your company etc. I will make sure I pass on Tadd’s name as well as Sounds Abound.”

Debbie & Jason – August 1, 2009

“Tadd was amazing!!! Jay and I were so lucky that he was available on our day! Our wedding had a wide range of ages and music styles and let me tell you -Tadd delivered! We told him to play what he felt was appropriate and trust me, he knew exactly what to play! My dance floor was packed all night, even with people that I thought wouldn’t step foot on the dance floor! He is the best DJ ever, this is not an opinion it is a fact!! Picking the music out was easy and Tadd had everything organized on the wedding day, Jay and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Tadd – thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you really did an amazing job! Let Tadd do all of the events and your company will be perfect!”

Kelli & Rob – July 5, 2009

“Tadd was so professional and really helped the night move along smoothly. It was because of him that things such as speeches, dances and cake cutting moved along. He played exactly what we asked him to and he went above and beyond by getting songs that weren’t available in the companies catalog. We received plenty of compliments about his ability as a DJ. We will definitely recommend him to everyone we know.”

Carissa & Joe – June 27, 2009

“Hello, My (now Wife) and I had Tadd as our DJ at our wedding last night and he rocked! The dance floor was jam packed the entire night. Tadd was phenomenal in making sure that the night went smoothly. I will be recommending Tad and Sounds Abound to all my friends and family. I could not say enough about how professional you guys were. Thanks for the great memories! Our wedding was a huge hit! Thanks again for helping make the best night of my life!”

Mary & Paul – June 20, 2009

“Tadd was a fantastic DJ for our wedding reception. He was very attentive to our musical selections, the evening timeline, and our guests enjoyment.”

Michelle & Michael – May 23, 2009

“Everyone is still talking about the music and the DJ, Tadd. Thank you for helping make our day even more special. Continue doing what you are doing.”

Gail – Organizer for Notre Dame Party – October 4, 2008

“I was one member of the committee that ran the Notre Dame Fall Fest where your DJ, Tadd, provided the music for the event. We appreciated that your DJs were able to handle the event with minimal to no work for us. They were clear with their needs prior to set up. They took care of their set up and NO participation from us was needed which is great when you are in the final hour of set up. They read the crowd’s interests well and adapted. We appreciated their professional nature, especially with it being a church event. The music was never too loud and they didn’t talk too much to distract from the flow of the music and energy. Thanks again and we will recommend your company for future events.”

Somonauk High School Homecoming – September 27, 2008 Somonauk High School Student Council

“Tadd, thank you very much for being the DJ at our Homecoming Dance. The dance was a huge success and the music was Great! Everyone had a lot of fun and danced a lot. In all, our school’s homecoming went really well. Thanks again for all your help.”

Jane – August 30, 2008

“I was very pleased with Tadd and the DJ service you provided for my daughter’s Sweet Sixteen Party. It really made the evening special and my daughter and her friends were very impressed with the whole experience. If we ever need a DJ again I will certainly call you first. Thanks for your help.”
