What Clients Say About Tony
Couldn't be more please
Tony Ho did a fantastic job DJing our small backyard wedding a few weeks ago! We had to change our wedding plans due to COVID and I was worried about using a DJ instead of the band we originally booked, but Tony and Sounds Abound far exceeded our expectations! Tony did an incredible curating a song list that had people dancing and mingling, including the songs we requested and adding in other songs that complemented it perfectly. He was great at announcing the events, choosing appropriate music, and keeping everyone entertained. He was involved enough without being intrusive , which is exactly what we wanted and allowed for us and our guests to have the best time! He even pivoted to play a song my sister mentioned during her speech, which was such a surprising and special additional that everyone absolutely loved. On top of being great at his job, Tony is also a kind, charismatic guy who brings such great energy and positivity! I cannot recommend Tony and Sounds Abound enough and am so thankful they were a part of our wedding day!

I have to say that Sound Abound has a wonderful team and service. We booked Sound Abound a year in-advance to our wedding date for 10/10/20 and all the DJ's were taken. They where supportive and very helpful with all the changes that COVID presented. We went from the full package with photo booth with 175 guests to the very basic package with only 50 guests. The owner and his son was very helpful. They would call, text message and email us with suggestions, input on COVID wedding experiences and other similar matters. They were quick to respond and answer questions. They took time out of their personal schedules to provide support and deal with over demanding parents. They followed your music profile and if you cannot find a song or want to merge two songs together, Sound Abound can help you with that. Tony Ho was our DJ and he was so sweet and kind. I knew that Tony was a good match because we both love BPM music. All our guests and our wedding coordinator loved the music Tony selected. Even with the restriction of 50 guests due to COVID guideline, everyone danced and enjoyed themselves. Thank you to Kyle Overby and Tony Ho for all your support! Much Thanks, L and M. 10/10/2020 COVID success.

Tony Ho was AMAZING at our backyard wedding! He got the party going right away and everyone commented that he was the best wedding DJ they’ve ever seen. He totally read the vibe on the dance floor and kept the hits coming. I was impressed with how early he got there to set up and how organized he was when it came to our large bridal party and order of events. My fiancé said he’d want to have another wedding just to get to dance the night away again!
September 26, 2020
Tony Thank you SO much for all you did to make our special day so memorable! Thank you for your flexibility too and stepping up to help us out at the last minute! We will see you in July when you MC our friend's wedding. Thanks again!
August 8, 2020
Dear Tony Thank you so much for being such a fantastic party of our wedding day. Mark and I really enjoyed working with you throughout the planning (and re-planning) process. We got so many compliments on how kind and professional you were all night long, with more than one person saying they wish they were planning a party just so they could hire you. Thank you so much for seamlessly running our event and for the incredible music choice all night long. We will forever cherish the awesome memories from the dance floor. Thank you again. Lucy and Mark

From Kris - MOB
Tony Ho was the amazing DJ for my daughter's wedding last night. It was a small Covid wedding reception and I was concerned that he wouldn't be able to keep the party going there was so few of us. I didn't need to worry Tony did it with ease. He kept all of us dancing all night. It was the best fun. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us!

We dealt with the Sounds Abound office at the very beginning and they were an absolute delight to work with. He made my husband and I feel so comfortable and he listened to what we wanted. Unfortunately due to covid we had to change our DJ a few times and ended up with Tony Ho who we were ecstatic to hear was available for our new date! He immediately reached out to me via email, gave me his phone number and the run down of everything. He set up a time to talk on the phone and go over details more in depth. My husband and I have completely opposite tastes in music so I found instrumentals of metal songs and asked for those to be played throughout the ceremony/cocktail hour/dinner. Tony had no issues whatsoever playing them for me and even welcomed the idea! He made me feel less crazy about it. He played all our top songs and introduced our wedding party just like we asked. He was so personable and down to earth. He had so many people on the dance floor for HOURS. I do not dance, you can ask anyone and I even told Tony this. I was probably on that dance floor most of the night. He made it a very memorable night and we are so lucky to have had him be our DJ.

Tony Ho was the DJ at our wedding at Cog Hill. He was amazing throughout the whole planning process with helping us pick out songs and even making a special mix for mine and my husband’s first dance. Everyone at the wedding had nothing but great things to say, and there was not one time where there weren’t people on the dance floor. He kept the party going the whole night and helped make all our wedding day dreams come true.

DJ Tony Ho was the best!!
Tony Ho was THE BEST. He came highly recommended by a friend who got married and I am so glad we booked him. He is so much fun, personable and plays the best music! We had so many compliments about how our dance floor was packed from start to finish. Can't recommend Tony Ho enough!
December 21, 2019
Tony Ho was the DJ at my wedding this weekend and let me just tell you, all the other reviews I read are completely correct. A couple weeks out from the wedding he gave my husband and I his cell number and told us that if we needed anything, contact him. I texted him at 10pm 2 days before the wedding because I forgot one of the most important songs I wanted to play and he got it in with no hesitation. He was totally flexible with what we did and didn’t want, EVERYONE was dancing almost the whole night, and I have gotten dozens of comments saying how amazing he was. The day after my wedding he sent me a snap of my wedding cake and a picture of me and my mom that I didn’t know he took, and thanked ME for letting him be our DJ. If I could get married 10 more times just to have Tony as our DJ I would without hesitation. The photo booth was incredible as well and had some of the best quality pictures I’ve ever seen from a wedding photo booth! The attendant was super kind and kept the line moving smoothly when there was one. All in all I had an AMAZING experience with Sounds Abound and I will definitely be recommending them to all of my friends as they get married!!!
Amazing company to hire for your special day!
I was planning my daughters wedding and was clueless on where to begin searching for a DJ. I decided to chose a DJ by word of mouth which lead me to reading many online reviews-which lead me to DJ, Tony Ho!! I was so excited after reading the reviews that I contacted Soundsabound immediately and requested Tony to be my DJ with over a year in advance from the wedding. Tony and I immediately spoke on the phone. He was very friendly and extremely outgoing which is what everyone would want in a DJ. He was very accommodating and always available to talk via phone or text prior to the wedding. He was very thorough and detailed. On the day of the wedding. Tony did an amazing job. He kept everyone on the dance floor the entire evening. It was truly a night to remember. If you are reading this and in search of a great DJ, Tony Ho is your man!!!! Hands down!!!!!!! I feel like a made a friend for life! Tony, Thank you for making my daughters wedding day so special. You were an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you for being you and caring to creating memories that people talk about long after the wedding. You are the BEST!! Regards, Laura

So much fun, talent, and genuine care for their clients!
Tony Ho was incredible! He took time to get to know us, made everything run smoothly and really studied our playlist. Be played all the right music, our guests were in the dance floor all night. We all had a blast and we cannot thank Tony enough for making our special day absolutely perfect!
November 23, 2019
Tony Ho was our DJ for our wedding and he was everything we could have wanted. He was so easy to work with and listened to all of our requests. Our dance floor was packed all night long and guests even told us that this was the best wedding they have ever been to, Tony was a huge part of that!
November 2, 2019
Tony Ho was great
We had Tony Ho as our DJ and he was great. He was able to play just the variety of music we had asked for and kept all guests entertained. We never had an empty dance floor and every guest that stayed until the very least second of the night talked about how great it was to have the variety of music to keep them going.
October 11, 2019
We booked Tony Ho as our DJ for our October 13, 2019 wedding. He was an awesome, amazing, and easy-going DJ to work with! He totally listened to my suggestions and when people requested songs to be played-he played them. I don't think I ever danced for almost 4 hours straight. He definitely knew how to keep me and others on the dance floor. Even though I had a small wedding, he definitely kept the party going 'til it was time to shut down. He was an amazing DJ and I highly recommend people to book him!!! DJ Tony Ho was da bomb! 🙂

Tony Ho was amazing! Very professional and well-spoken. The music was the perfect mix based on our taste. Sounds Abound is very affordable and their online planner made our lives much easier. Would recommend to anyone - get Tony Ho!

Perfect DJ for the Perfect Night
Tony Ho did an absolutely phenomenal job DJing our wedding! Following the reception, friends and family reached out to specifically complement how perfectly our DJ read the room and kept people on the dance floor all night long. Tony was incredibly professional and easy to work with through the process, always making himself available if we had any questions. Everything was perfectly coordinated to execute our vision for the evening to perfection. We can't say enough good things about Tony and Sounds Abound.
August 3, 2019
We had Tony Ho DJ our wedding on July 13! I cannot say enough how wonderful he was to work with! He is so personable and easy to work with! He met with us before the big day to make sure everything was perfect! On the night of our wedding he kept the party going all night long! He even let my 6 year old godson help him DJ! We will definitely be recommending Tony to our friends and family!
July 13, 2019
EVERYONE, AND I MEAN EVERYONE DANCED
I can not say enough wonderful things about Tony Ho and the company!!! They were so easy to work with and Tony Ho did a fantastic job. We got married about a month ago and our family and friends are still raving about how awesome he was!
Tony made our wedding night celebration a night to remember. When we spoke with him on a few days before our wedding, we only knew a few things but had a VERY open playlist. We told him we just want music that will get people of all ages on the dance floor. Let me tell you, he did just that! We had every member at our wedding come on the dance floor at least once! We even gave him confetti poppers to pop off when that timing was right on the dance floor. Again, let me tell you, he nailed it!!
Not only was music selection and DJing wonderful, Tony Ho did a fantastic job with transitions for our wedding night. There was not awkward pauses or switches between speeches, formal dances, introductions, etc. He was was phenomenal!
I would 100% recommend this company, especially Tony Ho for future events. You will NOT regret it.
June 28, 2019
Nobody Better Than Tony Ho!
We cannot recommend Sounds Abound (Specifically Tony Ho) enough!! Tony took our wedding to the next level with the absolutely perfect playlist for us and our guests! He has great personality and read our minds when it came to the music choices.
Tony went above and beyond for us, even meeting with us ahead of our wedding to make sure we felt comfortable with our ceremony choices, checking pronunciation for bridal party/family names, and answering any questions that we had.
I have had several friends ask who our awesome DJ was, and I am so happy to pass Tony's name/Sounds Abound along!
March 16, 2019
TONY. HO. If you haven't already, RUN (don't walk) over to Sounds Abound and book Tony immediately. I don't even know where to begin with how awesome he is and how amazing he made our night. He sincerely crushed it. From the very beginning, he was so helpful and easy to work with. He's so insanely responsive and really is just looking to make your night as perfect as possible. He sent random words of encouragement along the way...I told my fiance (now husband) at least 3 times throughout the planning process "I think I might be in love with Tony Ho" haha. In a time that can be super stressful and overwhelming, he was the calm during the storm. We provided maybe 5 "must-play" songs and a handful of other songs we liked…I’m not exaggerating when I say that the dancefloor was ALWAYS packed, and by people of all ages. Our bridal party, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, everyone ages 20-85! At 11:45pm when the bar was doing last call, the dancefloor was still packed. We ended up extending the reception an hour and when 1am rolled around, the dancefloor was STILL packed. We had to legit kick people out…Tony read the dancefloor and the vibes so well. Our experience was a 15/10. Yes – Tony was that amazing. He showed up early, he dressed professionally, he pronounced all of the names perfectly, and was ready to rock and roll. We had a ton of people tell us that we had “the best reception ever” and that was 10000% because of Tony. Book him! It will be the best decision you make, besides saying “I do” 🙂
June 15, 2019
Absolutely AWESOME company & DJ!
We booked Tony Ho from Sounds Abound to be the DJ for our wedding, and it was seriously one of the BEST decisions we made! Tony was INCREDIBLE! Throughout the planning process, he would check in with emails to see if there was anything we needed. He is so funny, sweet, and accommodating. Sounds Abound has an online planning tool where you can select must-play or do-not-play songs, as well as an unlimited amount of "Songs You Like" - Tony really took all this and ran with it, and absolutely NAILED our music style! From cocktail hour, to dinner, to the reception, he truly played songs that we loved and enjoyed. I had stressed out a lot about music during the planning process, only because my husband and I are such big music people and we really hoped that our "vibe" could be captured. Tony did not disappoint! Our dance floor was literally packed the ENTIRE night, up until the last song! He played music that everyone enjoyed, and made sure to throw in Salsa and Spanish music to honor my culture - it was such a blast! We have gotten so many compliments about our wedding and people have told us that they have never seen a dance floor as packed as ours! Thank you, Tony, for making our night one to remember! We will recommend you to all of our friends for their future weddings. 🙂

From the moment we met Tony Ho, we knew we wanted him to DJ our wedding. We went to a Sounds Abound meet-and-greet back in 2017 when we first got engaged. He was easily the brightest person in the room and stood out naturally. His saying is what got us to commit..."oh y not". Get it? Get it? It's his name...BACKWARDS! I mean, come on...how amazing was that?!? On the actual wedding day, Tony was on time, professional, respectively dressed for the evening, and a kind soul to work with. His music choice was AMAZING and kept everyone on the dance floor until we were kicked out at the end of the night. He was flexible when it came up that we needed to switch the timeline, he pronounced all of our important people's names correctly, and never ceased to impress all of our guests who attended! My husband and I give Tony all of the credit for making our wedding reception a 10/10! Go find him at Sounds Abound in Naperville!
May 4, 2019
Tony Ho is the first DJ I have ever heard getting an "encore" chant, he's just that good, he delivers the jams!! Tony Ho is by far the best DJ you could ever have for your wedding!! Very professional, great at reading the dance floor to keep it packed, perfect pronunciation of names in introductions, and all around great guy. BOOK HIM NOW, he fills up quick, because he is the best!!!!
May 24, 2019
You Name It Events
Tony, it was great working with you this past weekend at Victoria In The Park for Kelsey and Nick. Thanks for all you work in making their reception fun and memorable. Hope to work with you again in the future.

Amazing Bat Mitzvah!!
Sounds Abound is an excellent company to work with! We worked with them for both of our daughters’ Bat Mitzvahs. They communicated with me and gave us a choice of a few DJ’s. We chose Tony Ho as our DJ for our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah!
Tony was truly amazing. He called us the next day. He was eager to set up an appointment to meet us. For the moment we met Tony all of us loved him! He was professional and personable. We felt like we knew him forever. My daughter was excited, but wasn’t sure about music selection and games. Tony gave us a huge variety of ideas!
He checked in with us throughout the planning process. If I asked him a question he got back to us immediately. On the day of the Bat Mitzvah he arrived over 2 hours early to do set up and make sure everything would go as planned. His music selections and games were perfect. He had all the adults and children dancing the entire time. The dance floor was never empty. I would recommend Tony to anyone for a Bat Mitzvah, wedding or other special event!!
May 4, 2019
Mike and I had Tony Ho be our DJ at our wedding! It was the best decision ever!! From the start Sounds Abounds was easy to work with, they answered all and every questions that we had in a timely manner. When we chose Tony to be our DJ he was easy to communicate with and work with. They have an online form you fill out about what songs you want. You go over it with your DJ, how easy is that!? Our wedding date was April 27 and the weather was far from perfect! When we got to the reception for cocktail hour, the party had begun and it felt as if no one cared about the weather. From start to finish Tony knew how to get our guests on the dance floor! And the night went off without a hitch! We would 100% recommend Sounds abounds and Tony Ho!!
Mike and I also did the photo booth with our DJ- it was a big hit at the wedding! They even give you copies of everyone that goes into it through out the night! That will be fun to look back on as anniversary’s come up :). The photo booth was worth every penny!
April 27, 2019
Our experience with Soundsabound was great. They have an awesome system to help you organize your event. Our DJ was Tony Ho. He was fantastic. He helped with the music selection and really kept the night moving. We would highly recommend them.
March 23, 2019
Tony Ho made our night magical. It was a night we will never forget.
March 9, 2019
We loved Sounds Abound! From setting up a time to talk all the way to the big day the whole staff was involved, responsive, and easy to work with! They made us feel like our wedding and happiness meant a lot not only to our DJ but to their whole office. We used Tony Ho for our DJ and we were so incredibly pleased with his services. I gave him almost no direction and he was able to read the room and provide an amazing night for all, my guests cannot stop talking about how amazing he was!! Thank you so much for a magical night!!
November 30, 2018
Gah, Tony Ho was awesome as our DJ!! He was super accommodating and amazing to work with, and was totally determined to make our wedding vision a reality. He was willing to meet with us to discuss details, and was always available by email or text. Tony kept our guests dancing all night long, which is exactly what I was hoping for. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!!

You never think when you are planning a wedding how integral the DJ is. Usually the first priority is booking your venue and photographer and getting your wedding dress. My sister and I both got married this year 6 months apart so we were using the same vendors for both weddings. She had booked her DJ with Admit 1 DJ and her wedding turned into a complete disaster because of the DJ. I had also booked Admit 1 for my wedding in December 2018. However, after I saw what happened at my sister's wedding in July. I knew I had to find another company. I searched on yelp and the name Sounds Abound came up and I kept seeing the name Tony Ho come up in many reviews. So I met with the company and I was amazed at how genuine this company was. They don't require you to pay everything up front and they also say you can cancel within 2 weeks of your wedding and get all your money back. Below is the letter I just emailed Tony (my DJ).
I wanted to say a huge thank you to you for making our big day run so smoothly. When I first walked into Sounds Abound, I was skeptical because I had such a terrible experience with the other DJ company. Thank you for your phone meetings and email correspondences throughout the last few months. You really made me feel much more comfortable and at ease about my wedding day. I can tell that you looked at the playlist I had created and I remember hearing several songs that I loved all throughout the night. Thank you for being so nice about taking requests from everyone in our family. Our dance floor was packed the entire night which was what I was really hoping for. You did an outstanding job and I heard so many compliments all throughout the night on the music. Thank you so much in making our day go so smoothly.
December 15, 2018
Sounds Abound was a wonderful company to work with, but I want to give a special shout out to their DJ Tony Ho. He has such a fun and outgoing personality and you can tell he wants to do everything possible to make your wedding day special. He accommodated not only our song requests, but he was also willing to hand over the mic and allow one of our guest to announce the wedding party into the reception. At one point during the evening, I unfortunately ended up getting sick but Tony kept the party going until I was able to "make my comeback." He even held off playing all of my must play songs until I made it back to the reception AND made sure the my husband and I were still able to have our first dance (which he managed to take a picture of and sent it to my husband and I the next day). The guests barely even noticed I was missing because they were having so much fun partying with Tony!! Tony Ho is an incredible DJ and if you are looking for an super fun and overall genuine and nice guy, he should absolutely be your DJ. Thanks for everything Tony and Sounds Abound!!!!
October 27, 2018
We had the pleasure of working with Tony Ho, and are so glad we did! Tony made sure all our questions were answered before we booked, and he worked with us for a year to fine tune what we wanted on our day. At the actual wedding and reception he was professional, fun, and always exactly where he needed to be. We can't thank him enough for catering to our interesting crowd of very mixed musical interests at the reception (Time Warp?!? YAS). Tony, you are a ROCKSTAR!
September 22, 2018
Tony was great!
Our DJ Tony was fantastic! He was responsive, catered to our individual music tastes, and made adjustments based on our requests on the wedding day. He was super sweet and sent us several pictures of us dancing and the cake after the wedding. When nobody understood the cupid shuffle at the beginning of the dancing, he stepped in and showed everyone what to do! Would highly recommend.
June 9, 2018
Hire Tony Ho now!
From the second that we met Tony, we knew he was the guy for the job. He is very personable, professional, and has an amazing contagious smile and personality. He kept in contact with us throughout the entire planning process and the day of the wedding. He even went above and beyond on the day of the wedding by improvising with a separate vendor that was having an issue.
Great guy, great performance, great day!
October 7, 2018
Tony was wonderful, amiable and helpful. He did a great job adjusting our unique music tastes to what the wedding guests would have most wanted. He was fun and energetic, and everyone had a great time! Most specifically loved how Tony and Sounds Abound were both communicative, helpful and professional leading up to the wedding.
October 13, 2018
Thank you Sounds Abound!
We used Sounds Abound for our wedding reception. The online portal for planning made the whole process so easy! We got the opportunity to work with Tony Ho and he was AMAZING! So professional, friendly, and fun to work with. He made sure we had everything we wanted and did an awesome job keeping people on the dance floor all night. We would 100% recommend Sounds Abound! Thank you, Sounds Abound and Tony for making our wedding such a blast!

Finding a DJ was the most important and most daunting task for me when it came to planning my wedding. Not only am I obsessed with music, but the energy of the DJ sets the entire tone for the wedding and whether or not your guests enjoy themselves, which was my top priority! Sounds Abound had the right package for the right price, and my husband and I were so happy with what was included (uplighting, full dj services from 4-11pm, plus two hours of setup time, picking your own DJ, etc.) But then the hard part came: picking which DJ was right for us. I am an Egyptian-American and my guest list was very eclectic, as was my music taste. Tony Ho instantly impressed us with his charisma, his energy, and his infectious smile. His experience with multicultural weddings sealed the deal for me. I started planning 18 months in advance, and Tony was incredibly patient and responsive through the entire process. He worked flawlessly with our other vendors and had even worked with my photographer and venue several times before. He coordinated perfectly with our belly dancers, and gave them a great introduction! My husband and I liked Tony more and more with each meeting, text message, and email. He was so friendly and accommodating and he made me feel like he genuinely cared about making our wedding special and exactly the way we envisioned it. I literally gave Tony a color-coded spreadsheet with music for every second of the day, complete with plenty of notes and special requests. Never once did Tony express annoyance or frustration with my frequent changes and concerns, and he made me feel so comfortable reaching out to him with anything I needed. Tony even made some fun suggestions for our quirky ceremony that truly made it unforgettable, and our guests are still talking about it. Working with Tony was like working with a long time friend, and I will forever be grateful for how much he invested in making our wedding perfect for us. The dance floor was never empty, and a smile never left my face! He even snapped some great photos that he sent us right away! Do yourself a favor and get Tony for your wedding, you'll thank me later!

Sarah said... I cannot say enough about Sounds Abound, specifically the DJ we worked with, Tony Ho. Tony was extremely involved from the start and was very responsive to virtually any request we had up until the night before the wedding. He was always available via email and text, often reaching out to express his excitement for our big day. Our wedding was at The Herrington in Geneva, and, since Sounds Abound is listed as a preferred vendor, Tony was very familiar with the venue and where to set up his equipment which made our lives so much easier. We also rented the open-air photo booth for the night, which was a huge hit! Thank you to the Sounds Abound team and to Tony Ho for being the best wedding DJ we've ever seen.
September 29, 2018
Tony was Amazing! He kept the Dance Floor Moving, and everyone loved him! I could not have asked for a better wedding DJ. He played all our special requests and knew when to throw in some crowd pleasers to get the dance floor moving. Highly Recommend!
September 15, 2018
Tony Ho was our DJ for our wedding and he did a fantastic job! He kept people on the dance floor and accommodated our guest's requests! He did a great job with everything and had a great sense of humor! Highly recommend!
August 25, 2018
Potentially the best decision we made in terms of our wedding was booking Tony Ho from Sounds Abound. He is literally the best DJ I have ever encountered!!! I received numerous comments about how wonderful he was throughout the wedding night. People were like "I didn't know wedding DJs could be this good." 3 months after the wedding, people still talk about how awesome he was. Our wedding was LOADS of fun, and that is largely due to Tony!! He was very accommodating; he did a great job playing music that my groom and I like. He chose great songs, and he kept the dance floor bumping literally all night!!! My grandparents were out on the dance floor, and so were my college friends. I don't know how he does it. Also, Sounds Abound as a company was super easy to work with, and it seems like their DJs really know what they are doing. Tony himself was hilarious, kind, encouraging, and super pleasant to work with. By the end of the process, we were friends. I cannot say good enough things about Tony. Book him if you want a stellar DJ who is talented, fun, and caring!!
June 10, 2018
Beyond blessed! Tony Ho and his assistant made our wedding a true party. They were absolutely incredible with everything. I would totally recommend Sounds Abound to any bride and especially recommend Tony to anyone that wants an above and beyond DJ! They were professional and still fun, fantastic MC, and we could not have dreamed of it any better. Thank you Tony, and Sounds Abound!
August 31, 2018
What a Blast!!
Sounds Abound with Tony Ho rocked out wedding! From the get go we were able to view clips of all the DJs. But from our vendor's recommendation to how the company described Tony Ho, we knew we wanted him! Sure enough we met a few months before our wedding and he took solid time going over every detail to ensure our song choice would be included. We had a diverse wedding and he played all our choices and more...our guests were pleased. As were my husband and I! I told Tony after that I wish I had another event to plan because I want to enjoy his music and company again! Great guy with high personality. Thanks Tony!
August 17, 2018
Life of the party
What can I say? My daughter's wedding would not have been a complete celebration without Tony Ho running the show. Sounds Abound is the full package. From the excellent customer service from Rufus at the front desk,to our meeting with Tony where he got who we were right away,to the last song and everything in between, it was so smooth and easy. I can't see why anyone would even look anywhere else for a dj. Thank you Sounds Abound and TONY for your excellent service while making it fun. I would give you ten stars!
August 17, 2018
TONY HO is THE BEST!
If you want your dance floor packed the entire night of your wedding, you need to book TONY HO! His energy and laugh are very contagious! One of our priorities of the wedding was to make sure the dance floor was filled and people were dancing all night long. That is exactly what we got - he made it the best party ever! Tony was very responsive throughout the whole planning process, especially the last few days leading up to the wedding. He communicates well with other vendors to make sure everyone is on the same page. He listened to what we wanted and understood us completely! On the event day, he was very professional and made sure we were having fun. There were a few moments where he needed to improvise and he handled it so smoothly. Our wedding day would not have been the same without him. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Tony! He will not disappoint.

The only choice when it comes to a wedding reception!
We hired Tony Ho for my daughters wedding...I must say he totally delivered! If you want a DJ that is energetic..loves a crowd..and knows how to get a party going...Tony is your man! He is polite..respectful..and will not disappoint..our guests were coming up to my wife and I all night..raving about Tony!! Thank you again Tony..you are my man!
Tony Ho is the way to go!
We chose Tony Ho as our wedding DJ and could not have been happier with our decision. When it came to our group of wedding vendors, Tony was truly the MVP. From the very start, Tony made himself easily accessible to answer any questions or address concerns and would oftentimes reply almost instantaneously. We live in Arizona, and Tony was extremely accommodating with arranging his schedule so that we could meet when we were in town for wedding planning a few months before our Big Day. In the weeks leading up to our wedding day, Tony would frequently e-mail or text us to check in to see how things were going and if we needed anything. He also took it upon himself to reach out to our venue's event coordinator to discuss details related to the event space. Tony has a contagious energy that is impossible not to love, but also a calmness about him that truly put us at ease on our wedding day. He frequently checked in with us during our wedding, but not in an intrusive way, to ensure everything was going to plan, and even took some time to snap some fun photos of us on his iPhone, which he kindly sent us the next morning. Many of our guests complimented on what an amazing DJ he was, and we most certainly agree! Our only complaint is that we don't live in Chicago and therefore won't be able to hire Tony for our DJ for future events. If you have spent countless hours reading reviews on wedding DJs, stop your search right now and hire DJ Tony Ho of Sounds Abound Entertainment--you will not be sorry!

Tony from Sounds Abound was awesome! He had to have music/audio set up in 3 separate places (ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception) and he moved seamlessly from each location without ever a break in the songs. Even though two of the locations were outside, everyone said you could hear the music and microphones so clearly. He reached out via text often to see if we had questions/requests.

The Knot Lead
Tony Ho was our D.J., and he did a great job! Our guests were out on the dance floor all night, and we heard nothing but compliments.
May 19, 2018
We had Tony Ho as our DJ. He was professional, fun, on-time, and easy to coordinate with (prior-to and during event). He did exactly as we had planned, and we absolutely loved the music. Planning with Sounds Abounds was easy because they have an online planning tool. We didn't live in the area we got married, so it was easy to do this online/over the phone and not have to meet in person. Highly recommend.

Jeff said... We have used Sounds Abounds for both of our daughters weddings. They are fantastic. Kept the party rolling, kept people on the dance floor and never tried to take over the wedding with too much talking. Most highly recommended!

Tony Ho Wedding DJ
WE USED SOUNDS ABOUND FOR OUR DJ COMPANY FOR OUR WEDDING IN OCTOBER. WE WERE REFERRED TO THEM FROM FRIENDS THAT USED THEM IN THE PAST. FROM THE BEGINNING THEY WERE GREAT. SUPER PROFESSIONAL AND ALL ABOUT US. SO WHEN IT CAME TIME TO PICK OUR DJ, THEY HAD A MEET AND GREET. I WALKED IN AND WAS ABOUT TO START SOCIALIZING WHEN ONE DJ CAME UP AND INTRODUCED HIMSELF TO ME (TONY HO). HIS PERSONALITY WAS ELECTRIC. HE WAS FUNNY AND SUPER PERSONABLE. I DIDNT HAVE TO LOOK ANY FURTHER. HE WAS GOING TO BE OUR DJ. FROM THAT POINT FORWARD TONY WAS GREAT. HE WAS SUPER KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT MUSIC AND WHAT WOULD WORK WELL FOR US. FAST FORWARD TO THE NIGHT OF...HE KILLED IT. KEPT THE SHOW ON TRACK AND ALL THE MUSIC CHOICES (WE GAVE HIM SOME FREEDOM) WERE PERFECT. AFTER ALL THE DETAILS OF THE WEDDING HE HAD THE WHOLE WEDDING ON THEIR FEET. KEPT THE NIGHT GOING WITH A GREAT MIX OF OLD, NEW, FAST AND SLOW JAMS. I DO NOT PLAN TO EVER GET MARRIED AGAIN BUT IF I HAVE TO, I HAVE MY DJ ALREADY PICKED OUT. THANKS AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING TONY (THE NINJA DJ) HO HAHA!!!

Reliable, personable, and fun to work with!
Sounds Abound was an amazing company to work with and was attentive to all of our questions. Tony Ho listened to our music vision and made it come alive. He was a lot of fun at the reception and we got several compliments from family/friends regarding Tony. We also had our uplighting and photo booth though them-- both were great! We really appreciate Tony helping us celebrate our special day!
We love Tony Ho!!
I’ve been to a number of weddings that Tony has DJ’d and he always does an amazing job! Our own wedding was no exception! Everyone had a blast and complimented us on the great music. Tony was energetic, professional, and fun throughout the planning and wedding process. I would recommend him to any other family or friends for their special event. We also used the photo booth which was a hit.
October 14, 2017
So easy to work with!
We were referred to Sounds Abound by a few of our friends who had used them for their weddings. Tony Ho was our DJ for our wedding and he was amazing to work with. Their event planner made it super easy to search and select songs. We were stumped on a few songs choices and Tony gave us some great recommendations. He was super easy to get ahold of and very laid back. We had so many compliments throughout the night on our DJ and would highly recommend using them for your next event!
September 8, 2017
Everything beginning to end was perfect! We heard about Sounds Abound through my husbands co-workers that previously used them for their weddings. We selected the most cost efficiencient package because we were on a budget. It was a little more than what we wanted to spend but worth every single penny. It was very easy to work with them from booking to picking out songs all the way to the actual wedding day. Tony Ho was awesome! My sister in law was very pregnant and Tony checked on her to make sure she was comfortable and had her feet up. He said he would come back and get her for announcements for when it was time for the bridal party to go into the reception. And he did! He played what was on our list and made sure to keep the party alive! Tony even took pictures of us for our first dance and before we got announced and sent them to us 2 days later. I would highly recommend Tony and Sounds Abound to anyone anyday!
October 6, 2017
We absolutely loved working with Tony. He took time to meet with us during the planning process to help narrow down our song choices and genres for each part of the day. He was well organized and knew exactly what the schedule and routine was. We both spent the entire night on the dance floor. The song selection and timing was perfect. Our family and friends truly enjoyed themselves. We also loved the online portal which helps choose songs for each part of the day. It really made the day more personal. We highly recommend working with Sounds Abound and Tony! Thank you for such an amazing day!!
August 18, 2017
TONY WAS AMAZING! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Tony by far exceeded our expectations from day one when we first spoke to him. Not only was he extremely responsive, easy to work with, and made wedding planning FUN, but we had some specific requests and he blew us away! My family is primarily of Polish descent so it was important for us to have a special song played during the reception. Not only did Tony find a great version of it, but he did his research and did a really great, but short, intro of the song so that the other side of the family would understand what was going on and could share in the special moment. On top of that, we had a few ad hoc changes the day of the wedding as far as something we needed included in the reception, and Tony completely adapted with ease and made it a non issue. We also had a tough crowd to please--the full range from little kids to elderly; but Tony handled that with ease as well and had the dance floor packed all night long! He didn't make the reception about him, or do too many talking intros for things--he really did an absolutely perfect job! All in all, we couldn't have imagined a more perfect DJ for our event, and we truly appreciate Tony's personal contact and personal touch throughout the wedding planning process to the actual wedding.
July 22, 2017
Tony Ho was an excellent DJ! His sense of humor was really great and kept the guests engaged. He played a great mix of music that kept all our guests, from ages 8 - 85, dancing for hours. We received many compliments on the DJ and said it was the most fun reception they'd been to! Tony also kept us on schedule for the evening with the first dance and bouquet toss. During the planning process Tony was available to help out and provide suggestions. We also liked the online event manager program that allowed us to select an unlimited amount of songs that we liked and guided us with reception organization. Sounds Abound was also competitively priced and worked with us to ensure we received services to suit the location. We would recommend Tony again and again!
September 15, 2017
Awesome Experience all around!
We were recommended Sounds Abound and Tony Ho from some friend and we were not disappointed! They took the time to walk us through everything they offered and how it would all work out! We had additional speakers for our outdoor reception and some awesome uplighting that really made our venue pop! Tony was awesome to work with. The enthusiasm he had for us and our day was perfect! Not only was he able to work in all of our special requests he was able to keep the dance floor packed the entire night! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ! He also took the photo we uploaded here too!
August 12, 2017
We cannot sing enough great praises for Sounds Abound and in particular, Tony Ho. From start to finish, the experience was amazing. From the in-person introduction and booking process to the constant check-ins, we were impressed and at ease with working with Sounds Abound. Furthermore, Tony Ho, our DJ (though he was really much more than just our DJ/MC), truly made our wedding special. Not only did he meet our every (and numerous) needs, but did so in a professional and fun manner. He made all our guests feel like family and we had numerous guests come up to us afterwards expressing how impressed they were with Tony. Some even asked if they could steal him for future events. He kept the energy going by providing a careful balance of letting the guests do their thing when energy was hi and stepping in (and providing some killer dance moves) when energy levels were a little lower. Tony made time to meet with us before our wedding to get to know us and our preferences and on the day of, worked seamlessly with our other vendors to make sure the day was about us. Thank you Sounds Abound, and more importantly, thank you Tony Ho.
September 3, 2017
Tony Ho was the best DJ ever! He played songs that everyone liked from a variety of generations. Tony also worked with us before our wedding to make sure our night was perfect. Everyone danced the night away and we got many compliments on how good the music was!

Greatest wedding DJ ever
The concept of greatness is a strong concept, but not strong enough for the DJ stylings of Tony Ho. Tony Ho was a great DJ for my wedding and would be a great DJ for any event. If you need a fun DJ and don't want to have to worry about any of the details, hire this man.

DJ Tony Ho was extremely personable and adaptable to the diverse crowd at a wedding I attended this past weekend. The dance floor was packed from the first song until time to leave. He worked well moving from song to song and the choices he made show his expertise in knowing how to read the crowd and keep the reception full of energy! He arrived early and completed setup prior to the reception and was the last one to leave. Would highly recommend DJ Tony Ho and his company Sounds Abound!
June 25, 2017
We hired Tony Ho as our wedding DJ. He was amazing. The online planning tool was extremely helpful, and he was able to gauge exactly the type of music that we wanted (or didn't want) from the songs we had chosen on the planning tool. The dance floor was full of people having the best time ever. Tony did an incredible job of keeping the party going. I would highly recommend the company and Tony.

Tony Ho Kept the Party Dancing
Tony Ho was so great to work with, very friendly and personable. He has an awesome personality and was able to keep everyone on the floor dancing! We were so happy to have him DJ our wedding, we would definitely recommend him to other engaged couples. Or anyone really looking for a DJ!
November 5, 2016
Rule of thumb, you spend months sometimes over a year planning your special day and it will never fail something always goes wrong. It might be a small or big details but I can say for one thing it won't be your DJ, if you go with Sounds Abound and have the one and only Tony Ho! Words can't explain his professionalism and genuine sincerity to make your day amazing. Not only does he know how to judge your guest to get them on the dance floor he goes above and beyond to make your day special.
Like many we had unfortunate things happen on our day in which Tony was able to improvise and make it a night to remember. He even checked in the day after, sent photos from his vantage point with his phone and truly wanted to make sure everyone had an awesome experience.
If he is available for your date, grab him up asap because he won't disappoint, he truly is a one of a kind class act!!
And to Tony, many thank you were the best!
October 21, 2016
From the start when interviewing DJ's at Sound Abound, We, knew we were in the right place. After hearing many great things about all the DJ's. We decided to go with Tony Ho. The first meeting and setting up a plan for the biggest night of our lives went beyond what I expected. All we had to do was fill out forms and pick our songs and the rest was handled! The day of the Wedding, it was seamless. From the lighting to the music selections, everything was handled and the dance floor was kept full with all ages participating. Not only is Sounds Abound a great company, Tony Ho and his assistant made the night complete. We couldn't be happier. Great people to work with!

Choose Tony Ho, oh y not?
We were so pleased with our Sounds Abound experience. My wife and I knew the music and MC would be a very important part of the reception, but neither of us had strong opinions about what music should be played. The online planner was convenient and easy to use. In the end, we only had about 10 songs that we told Tony we liked and about the same number in the do not play category. We didn't have any songs in the must play category. With that little guidance, we left it up to Tony to work his magic.
It's pretty safe to say that he crushed it.
I've never been to a wedding where people made a mad dash to the dance floor the moment it opened. Well, I suppose now I have. He got our guests out there from the first song and he kept them there the entire night. The transitions from song to song were great and he kept everyone happy with a great balance of classic and current songs. I remember hearing most of the songs from the songs we like category. He did a great job working them into the lineup and made everything flow.
I must also add that Tony was a great communicator, both in his public presentation and with his communication with us as a couple. He spoke with us on the phone the week before, right before the reception began, and then checked in with us later on in the evening.
We couldn't be more pleased with our choice in company and MC. Choose Sounds Abound and then choose Tony Ho!

Sounds Abound is the BEST company to have at your event!!
My sister used sounds abound for her wedding and she had Tony Ho as her dj and highly recommended him to me! He is a great DJ from the first meeting to the big day his experience shows through everything he does. Tony also provided the music for our outdoor vineyard ceremony. He and his partner came ready and prepared with all the necessary equipment. He is incredibly friendly and upbeat from start to finish. He helps with not only being a DJ but an emcee for the evening. He did a great job announcing the speeches and key points in the evening. He kept the dance floor packed and people were dancing all night long! We would highly suggest Tony for any future event you may need a DJ for. Thank you Tony for everything!!!

Tony Ho does it again!!!
My sister and her husband had Tony Ho DJ at their wedding and it was non stop dancing! Three years later, when I got engaged I reached out to Sounds Abound and requested Tony immediately.
He was so relaxed and the put me at ease during the planning process. He brought up really great advice about our first dance and was flexible and easy to work with when I had last minute adjustments.
The day of he greeted us and was genuinely pumped to be at our wedding. We let him know that there was an extra, last minute speech and he introduced him without hesitation. He also had music picked out after each speech to compliment the message. There was a game of thrones reference that he followed up with the GOT theme song. Subtle things that people paying attention really enjoyed.
We have been to our fare share of weddings (13 in one year) and Tony's ability to read the dance floor is incredible. I really appreciated that there were guests of all ages on the dance floor. After the last dance about 50 people remained hanging out and talking on the dance floor. Everyone wanted to keep the party going.
To top if off, the next day Tony sent us a text congratulating us on a great wedding and included an amazing picture of us during our first dance, from an angle that our photographer didn't capture. Overall, Tony's flexibility, excellent music selections and genuine excitement for each wedding is amazing. We love Tony Ho!!

Tony Ho: The Legend, The Riot, The Best DJ
Absolutely THRILLED with Tony's work during our wedding day! Throughout the entire process, he was one of the vendors that kept me the most calm and had a ton of fun with it. My husband and I have a very unique style in music -- everything from MoTown to the latest hits, to really explicit rap music, he understood what we were looking for and had our backs the entire time. The two of us are Sox fan, and we told Tony under no circumstance should "Go Cubs Go" be played, despite them playing on our big day. He stuck with us the entire time and even saved us in the end when we almost gave in 🙂 Tony's shared sarcasm, humor, fun voice and upbeat personality really set the stage for us working with him and he had everyone in our family, including our friends, tearing up the dance floor the ENTIRE night -- it was AMAZING! I have never been to a wedding where the dance floor was occupied the ENTIRE time -- excellent job, Tony!! We wish we could get married a million times again to dance the night away to your playlists!
October 22, 2016
Working with Sounds Abound was wonderful. They were always quick to answer questions and felt extremely organized. We knew which DJ we wanted to work with from a friend and he was fantastic. Tony Ho was always open to conversations with us at any time and made us feel confident our wedding would be fun for everyone. We also had an Arabic DJ and Tony worked extremely well with him. Highly recommend Sounds Abound!
October 1, 2016
We had a great overall experience with Sounds Abound for our wedding this August. The online planning tools were very helpful. Tony Ho and his assistant kept the dance floor going ALL night... I can't think of a single lull in the night. He played all the songs we asked for and read our crowd well. Our parents and many others raved about our DJ. Thank you Tony and Sounds Abound for helping to make our night unforgettable!
August 20, 2016
Awesome & Amazing DJ and Company!
Working with sounds abound on the package I wanted and the DJ was very simple. You can work with them over the phone and not even stop by the office. I love the process of selecting you own DJ and they have very good info on each one. My DJ was Tony Ho. He was the best and there was not one point throughout the night where there was no one on the dance floor. Everyone is usually worried about the first song where all your guest can dance and if everyone will start dancing. I didn't have to worry about that with our DJ everyone was on the dance floor right away. I even had one of my friends come and say that was the most successful first dance with all the guest she has ever seen. Tony was also very good with introductions of the wedding party and coordinating all the specialty dances. I would highly recommend this company and DJ Tony Ho.
August 6, 2016
Tony Ho is the best!
Tony Ho is the best DJ. He kept the dance floor full the entire night at our wedding. Don't feel pressured to give him a ton of songs to play, he is a professional and can totally read the crowd. We had so many complements about him from our wedding guests. Book him for your wedding!
July 9, 2016
Tony Ho was absolutely wonderful! Intros were great and he was so friendly and personable. Our dance floor was so packed the entire night that people were dancing next to it! The music selection was awesome and Tony knew exactly what to play to please the crowd. Everyone had such a great time with him that after the last song was over everyone started chanting "one more song, one more song"! I could not have possibly been more happy with Tony. I highly recommend him!
June 18, 2016
We decided to book with Sounds Abound after we had gone to a wedding and loved their DJ! We booked Tony Ho and he did not disappoint!! He was amazing! We made a play list through our online planner and he added what he thought would be good and did his thing! He was easy going and totally made our day amazing!!!! If you need an awesome DJ book Sounds Abound and Tony Ho!!
January 2, 2016
Tony, Thank you for your fantastic work at our wedding! Everyone had a blast! Thank you for helping with all the last minute song decisions too! You did a great job and we'll certainly recommend you and Sounds Abound to friends! Thanks again!

DJ at our wedding
We had Tony Ho as our DJ and loved his work! Once dinner ended, everyone started dancing and never stopped! He understood the type of music we liked and did a great job switching songs and pleasing everyone in the crowd! Highly recommend him!
Tony ho was the best dj I have ever heard play at a wedding, and I was so glad it was at mine. He played everything we wanted on our playlist and did amazing with the selection. He got involved at just the right times and took request from my guests and played them all. I really appreciate Tony and everything he did to make sure I had an amazing day. Thank you so much Tony ho for making our wedding complete! I would request Sound Abound and Tony ho to everyone and anyone
Tony Ho did an awesome job at our wedding. I would recommend him to anyone. He kept people dancing throughout the night with great music. He was easy to work with and professional. Couldn't have asked for more.
April 9, 2016
Thank you for all your hard work in making our day special! Everyone had a great time on the dance floor and thanks for fitting in all our requests?
October 11, 2015
Tony Ho was our DJ. He did an amazing job. I can't speak higher of him as a DJ or the company as a whole. Sounds Abound was prompt, accommodating, friendly and fun company to work with. All of guests commented on how excellent the DJ was. The dance floor was packed all night long.
November 7, 2015
We absolutely loved having Tony as our DJ. He did an awesome job keeping everyone on the dance floor. He played music for the demographic of our group. He did a great job of mixing up all of our requests, along with our guests. We even have a friend as a DJ that attended the wedding and gave Tony two thumbs up for appealing to the masses. We also loved having the photobooth and those memories that we have forever! Thanks so much Sounds Abound!

Best Wedding DJ in Chicago - TONY HO!
Sounds Abound and specifically Tony Ho were out of this world for our wedding. Starting from the beginning, they were incredibly friendly and nice to deal with. If we waited more than a few hours for a call back or email response I would be shocked. The team over there prioritizes you and your event (in our case a wedding) even though I am sure they are booked through the roof for their services.
Before the wedding: The online tool was very user-friendly. We were able to have endless back-and-forths with Tony about what we wanted and did not want. We had phone chats, Skype, and email exchanges to seal the deal. More importantly, Tony was relaxed even when we weren’t!
The wedding itself: Tony arrived a few hours before the reception even began. It was our first face-to-face meeting, but it seemed as though we had been friends for quite some time. It’s hard to really describe his personality, but he is so likeable. He was wooing over the grandmothers, the bridesmaids, and heck even me (the groom). He knew when to light up the party with some dance music, and when to take it back for some slower dances. Tony was incredibly receptive to our requests – and we had lots of them. My family is Greek, so we had cultural dances he wove into the night, too. Overall, I cannot recommend Tony enough. We had plenty of people asking for his contact information as the night was winding down. Thanks again, Tony! Quick note: We also had a photobooth through Sounds Abound. We had a few guys working the booth and the guest book they created for us (an expense worth taking!). They were party promoters, too! They helped to create a fun atmosphere for everyone – even the stoic great uncles who didn’t speak English cracked a smile with their funny hats.
August 15, 2015
Tony Ho was awesome! He really listened to our wants and needs during our one on one sit down and executed flawlessly at the reception. The dance floor was always packed. If he saw the floor starting to empty out, he would change the music quickly to a crowd favorite and people would turn around and come right back on the dance floor. Also, instead of just playing random songs for the cocktail hour, he asked what bands/songs we would like for that as well. Sounds Abound also provided up-lighting for the reception that looked wonderful. Overall, great job! I highly recommend him and Sounds Abound!
July 18, 2015
Sounds abound was great to work with. They have a great online tool that makes choosing music very easy. Tony was our DJ and he did a phenomenal job getting people onto the dance floor. We had the biggest dance floor our venue would offer us and it was packed the whole night! We had an absolute blast during our reception and we owe a lot of that to Sounds Abound & our DJ!
July 11, 2015
Flexible, affordable and SUPER FUN!
Tony Ho made our wedding 'da bomb' !! He was totally in tune with our hip hop style, and played everything we wanted! The Sounds Abound website in which we could pre-select songs and genres was pretty awesome. Our guests were singing along to the best 90s jams during dinner, and packed on the dance floor later to party. I had some very non-hip hop Iowan cousins state, "I haven't danced like that in years! Best wedding I've been to." The uplighting really added to the vibe, and the photo booth was of course a huge hit. Our only wish is that the party could have lasted longer- haha. Thanks Tony & Sounds Abound!

Amazing Experience with Sounds Abound
We had an amazing experience with Sounds Abound and DJ Tony Ho. He did such a great job with the music and it he kept the whole dance floor packed all night. I really can't say enough and Tony even surprised me by playing one of my favorite songs I hadn't even requested. He pays attention to details and really knows what he's doing. The guests kept complimenting him and the music all night. I will definitely be recommending this company and DJ Tony Ho in the future. Thanks Again!
July 4, 2015
We had Tony Ho for our wedding and it was just awesome. We had very specific requests, which was probably very tedious but Tony just prepared everything perfectly. He was very easy to work with, and I don't even need to talk about the music, because our dance floor was packed with crowd until midnight. I would highly recommend Sounds Abound for their exceptional customer services and Tony Ho as DJ.

Sounds Abound was Fantastic!
We had Tony Ho as our DJ. He was great to work with and very friendly. We requested various music during our ceremony which he blended in perfectly. His timing was exact. Our guests all commented how friendly and accommodating Tony was regarding their requests for music. We had a blend of young and old at our wedding. Tony really had a feel for the entire room and kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night. We are very pleased and will be recommending Sounds Abound and Tony Ho without hesitation. Thank you for everything.
April 18, 2015
Tony did a wonderful job at our wedding reception. He guided the timeline of events in an apparently effortless fashion which helped make the evening run very smoothly. He has great intuition for music that is perfect for the guests, and we all had a blast dancing all night long! We'd highly recommend him for any reception.
March 28, 2015
Sounds Abounds has really lived up to it's reputation and name. This is the second year we have utilized your services and it just gets better and better. The DJ Tony Ho made our Holiday Party a true party and it was great.
Thank you again and you are a great organization.

rachel said... We choose Sounds Abound because they were a preferred vendor at the Hyatt Lodge and all the great reviews we read. Tony Ho was our DJ for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. He did a fabulous job. He was so friendly and made us feel comfortable immediately. He also always responded to our emails very promptly. He was there all day long and we really appreciated his enthusiasm. Our ceremony music was perfect and he transitioned the music seamlessly. He really listened to our music preferences and our wedding had a great mixture of music. He kept the dance floor full all night long. He also did a great job introducing our bridal party as well as making the announcements needed throughout the evening. We highly recommend Sounds Abound and Tony Ho!

Wonderful, perfect, so easy to work with
I was married just 2 days ago! My finace and I had Tony Ho as our dj and his assistant Michael as well. We also used the photobooth with Sounds Abound. Everything was perfect. Tony was wonderful throughout the entire process, even adding songs for us the day before! He and Michael had the dance floor full all night! I had many people comment to my how great they thought it was. They especially liked how Tony and Michael participated in the Wobble... let me tell you, they can wobbble! The photobooth was also a huge hit. Everyone loved it and we got a book with all the pictures that provided a lot of laughs and is a great momento of the night.
I would highly recommend the services from Sounds Abound as we really didn't have to worry at all about music leading up to the reception and it ended up perfectly!
November 1, 2014
Tony was exactly what we wanted at our wedding! So many guests of all different ages commented on how great he was. He accommodated our requests and adapted the music to the style we wanted. Couldn't have asked for a better night, thank you Tony!
October 11, 2014
My fiance and I booked Tony Ho after hearing him at our friend's wedding and agreeing that he was the best DJ we had ever heard. We jokingly said it was as if he was reading our minds and playing exactly what we wanted. We both believed that the DJ was one of the most important aspects of a wedding, on the same level as the open bar. For our wedding, Tony delivered just as expected. All of our guest commented about the music and how it was the best they've ever heard at a wedding. He was extremely professional. He even matched his tie to our wedding colors.

Tony Ho and his assistant, Michael, were absolutely fantastic! They were extremely easy to work with and kept the party going all night long. There were never less than 40 people on the dance floor! We received so many compliments and everyone had a great time. We will definitely be recommending Tony, Michael and Sounds Abound to other engaged couples!

Tony was an amazing DJ. We had family from all over the United States that like totally different kinds of music. The entire wedding was on the dance floor all night ( and he still found a way to get in every song we wanted to hear). He read the crowd perfectly. Everyine had an amazing time. Him and the entire staff that was with him were friendly and kind. Even my guests told me how great they were!!

Tony Ho was the DJ for our wedding on 5/9/14. We were extremely impressed and pleased with how everything turned out. Tony was very professional and did a great job of making sure that our wedding and the music was exactly how we had hoped. We were really happy about the music selection (as were our guests). Thanks for the great music and the great experience with Sounds Abound (particularly Tony)!

Tony Ho was our DJ for our wedding and we would highly recommend him to anyone! He made the process very easy, and we found the online database super helpful...we were able to pick "must play" and "don't play" songs, as well as "songs we like" to give Tony a better idea of our music taste. He was able to play songs that our parents requested during the wedding, including Celtic music during dinner for my dad. Unbeknownst to me until the actual event, he collaborated with my dad behind my back per my dad's request and came up with a mash-up of songs for the daddy-daughter dance. It was more than perfect and from my dance with my dad until the end of the night, the dance floor was completely packed. It was an amazing mix of music and so many of our guests complimented us on how wonderful the music was!
My husband and I did NOT want a corny DJ, and we can happily say that we chose correctly with Tony! He was fun and encouraging and kept to the schedule we had set to keep everything moving along. If you're looking for a DJ in the Chicago suburbs, we would highly recommend this company, and especially Tony!

More than we could have asked for!
Tony and Mike were our DJs for our wedding in June. From the beginning Tony was available to answer any of my questions or concerns. He was very organized yet laid back and friendly. Out of everything I was stressing about on my wedding day, our DJ was not one of them. I felt so confident that Tony and Mike were going to do a fabulous job. When we arrived at the reception they had already set up and were fully prepared. They asked me throughout the night if I needed anything. If I wanted a song played I told them and it was the next song to be played. At one point Tony and Mike even came out to the dance floor to teach everyone how to do the Cuban Shuffle. They kept the crowed dancing and excited. They did such an amazing job and I would recommend them to anyone!! Thank you Tony and Mike 🙂

Our wedding was April 26th 2014 at the Sheraton Lisle, we chose Sounds Abound Entertainment based on the awesome reviews we read online, and we were not disappointed. Tony Ho was our DJ and he was so professional and took our input into consideration. Our dance floor was packed all night, everyone was raving about the music and all 250 people had a great time! He did an amazing job at incorporating modern songs with wedding classics and even through in a few polkas per our request. I would definitely use Sounds Abound again for any future parties and more specifically Tony Ho. We could not have been happier with our choice.
April 26, 2014
WOW!!!!!! Sounds Abound treated our wedding like the most important thing on their to-do list. I felt very special on my special day. Tony Ho was absolutely amazing. He did everything that we asked of him, flash mob, announcing everybody's name correctly, dancing on the dance floor, and so much more. He went beyond our expectations. The dance floor was packed for entire reception. Tony Ho kept the floor alive by playing an amazing selection of random genres of music. Every time a song came new song came on I wanted to dance to it. Definitely the perfect party scene I wanted for my wedding. Thank you Tony Ho and Sounds Abound!
May 10, 2014
We used Sounds Abounds as the DJ company for our wedding. Tony Ho was the DJ we selected. He was great! We had them provide the ceremony and reception music. They provide helpful advise and the website is easy to use. People were on the dance floor all night and that was what we wanted!
They have an easy to use website to put in the music you want and don't want. We added the uplighting into the package, and if it is in your budget I would suggest adding it. It makes the space elegant and cozy.

Wedding on Jan 4th 2014
My fiance/wife and I could not have had a better experience! We had Tony Ho as our DJ. He was on-time and extremely professional. In addition to his courtesy to guests requests and attention to detail, it does not begin to describe the way he kept the party going the ENTIRE NIGHT! We have had nothing but rave reviews of our wedding/music and how it was the BEST they have ever been to. I myself was amazed how the dance floor was packed all evening. Tony had worked a few of our friends' weddings in the past with the same results. I have since recommended him for two weddings that will be taking place in the next year.
If you want a great time/event and a packed dance floor...book Tony Ho and Sounds Abound!!
Thank you Tony, for doing such a fantastic job. Everybody had a great time!

We had our Holiday Party for 2013 on Friday December 13, 2013. Tony was our DJ and the fact that he was there before we were was impressive and just a sample of the great music and atmosphere he created for the remainder of the night. Sounds Abound and Tony tuned it into a fantastic party and celebration. This company is great and they were making sure that all of our needs were met from the beginning. Thank you and great job!!

Tony, you and your partner did amazing. You took the music we love and turned it into a playlist that everyone could enjoy. I can tell you spent a lot of time ensuring that the songs we wanted fit the situation. The dance floor kept moving all night. You are a consummate professional.
I wish you the best of luck and will for sure recommend Sounds Abound, the same as I was recommended to you from my cousin.
November 9, 2013
Hello- We just wanted to take the chance to say thank you so much to Tony Ho and all of Aounds Abound. Tony and his assistant did such an amazing job even though I didn't give him much direction. Everyone has told me how we had the best music of any wedding they have been too and everyone had such a great time dancing. We really appreciate how hard Tony worked for us and will recommend Sounds Abound to our family and friends. Thank you!
October 19, 2013
Tony Ho is the best!
We would HIGHLY recommend Tony. The dance floor was filled all night long with guests of all ages. He called me before the wedding to get to know our music styles and how to pronounce everyone's names correctly (which I really appreciated). He was so much fun and definitely played to the crowd. I've had several guests mention how great the music was at our wedding. We've been to a few weddings since ours and no DJ has even compared to Tony!
August 3, 2013
Tony Ho did a wonderful job as a DJ for our wedding. We had seen videos of him on the Sounds Abound website and wanted to have him at our wedding.
I've never seen so many people on the dance floor for an entire wedding, which is exactly what I was hoping for. We had given him recommended songs, but knew he was the expert to change things up and make sure that everyone was having a great time. We were really pleased with Tony and with Sounds Abound for our wedding and would definitely recommend them to other people looking for DJs for an event. Thank you so much. 🙂
I will send along any photos that I get, as soon as I get them back from the photographer!
September 28, 2013
Our DJ was Tony Ho, and he did a phenomenal job all around.
We were very pleased with his work and most importantly, the way he sounded on the microphone. He did a great Job of always knowing where the bride and groom were at all times, even when the groom couldn't find his bride in the sea of 300 people on the dance floor.
But he definitely made the night go exactly how we planned.
Thank you very much!

Go Tony Ho fo' sho!
We had a wonderful experience with Sounds Abound from start to finish. Our very first meeting with a DJ Entertainment company was with Jeff Wells for Sounds Abound and we left with a great impression. He was super professional and made us feel comfortable; he sold us on his company without saying anything negative about other local companies or making us feel like we had to make a decision right then, which we found to be the case when we did meet with a couple of other companies. Based on the video clips that Sounds Abounds posted of their DJs we chose Tony Ho as our DJ for the night and we are so glad that we did! He was really accessible and answered any questions that we had prior to the reception and even called us a few days before just so that we could all chat and go over everything one last time. Our dance floor was packed the entire night and we had so many friends and family members tell us that it was the most fun wedding they had ever been to, seriously, this guy is good!
September 7, 2013
Tony made our night!
Our August wedding at Two Brothers Roundhouse was amazing! We had an idea for some music, but told Tony Ho that he can use his experience and ideas to shape the night. Everything from the ceremony through the last song went so well! The music choices were perfect for us and our friends. We have had so many compliments on what a great time people had, and they credited much of that to the DJ. One of my favorite parts of the night was everyone singing to the "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" theme song during dinner, which is something I would never have thought of! Thanks for providing such easy planning services and a great DJ for the night!
August 24, 2013
Tony is the best in the business!!!
I have had the luxury of attending many weddings and by far and away Tony is the greatest. He gets everyone on the dance floor and his excitement really sets the tone for the party. I would recommend him to anyone that is having a wedding reception or a party. If you are looking for a good time call Sounds Abound and ask for Tony Ho to be your dj, he will knock it out of the park!!
August 16, 2013
Tony Ho is awesome!
We picked Tony after hearing him at a friend's wedding. My husband and I both agreed that our friend's wedding was a hit because of Tony. He did a great job at our wedding too. He was great with planning and he specifically helped me to coordinate a surprise karaoke song for my husband! As for the wedding, we have a large group of young friends and he kept everyone on the dance floor all night long. Whenever anyone in our circle talks about a wedding, they all say, "Wasn't as good as yours. The music wasn't as good." 🙂
May 4, 2013
We could not have been happier with Tony Ho as our DJ. Tony listened to everything we told him we wanted and followed through completely! Watching our reception video back this week, we heard all the songs that he played during dinner (which you don't hear at the time b/c you are busy talking to your guests). Tony played lots of songs by our favorite bands and music genres. During dancing, we had a few songs on our must-play that were special to our families. Each song was played at the perfect time during the evening. Tony also did a great job at reading the dance floor and keeping everyone dancing the entire evening. Many thanks to Sounds Abound and Tony for helping to make our big day so wonderful!
August 2, 2013
We couldn't have chosen a better DJ than Tony Ho for our wedding! From the very beginning, he was right on top of everything we wanted for our special day. Tony was always available to answer my questions throughout the wedding planning process and also helped with our timeline for the wedding night. We had several surprises for our guests that Tony helped organize: Greek dancing performance, opera vocalist, brother/bride dance and he even secretly worked with my husband to surprise me with him singing our first dance song! I was very nervous that everything wouldn't go as planned and our DJ made it all happen! We truly had our dream wedding and our DJ was definitely a huge part of that!! If your looking for an upbeat DJ that can get the crowd moving, Tony Ho is your guy!! So look no further, go ahead and book him for your special day!
Thanks Sounds Abound!!
August 10, 2013
Tony Ho did an awesome job as our wedding DJ! He was very organized, responsive, and made us feel totally at ease leading up to the ceremony. He was open to our 'must have' songs and gave great suggestions on what would get the crowd dancing. All of our guests were on the dance floor and loved the music. The photobooth was also a big hit - highly recommend getting a booth with an attendant. Sounds Abound was great to work with.
July 13, 2013
This is incredibly overdue, but as we are watching our wedding video we realized that this review is super important and needed to get done. Our day was so special in so many ways, but thanks to Tony and Sounds Abounds, we would not have had so many compliments. Several times from our family and friends we heard that we threw the best party of the year. Our experience with sounds abounds could not have been better. The customer service from the day you make an appointment, to booking the event, to the personal phone call from our DJ Tony, to our dance floor at our reception that was packed at every minute of the night....We could not have asked for more. Tony was so personable, and made sure he contacted me before the wedding checking on pronunciations of my bridal party.... I was impressed. He really kept the dance floor moving the entire night. It was incredible. If it means anything....my dad is a HUGE critic of music at weddings, and he says it can make or break a wedding....so he made sure that Tony really knew what he was doing, and my dad had a great time! I highly recommend sounds abounds for any event. They really have a great business going, and really know how to make the most important day of your lives a memory that lasts forever! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!!
April 5, 2013
We could not be happier with our DJ choice! After our initial chat with Tony Ho in which he said he knew what we wanted, we were hooked.
Everything was perfect from the online portal to make sure everything you have going on is in order, to the day of in which our dance floor was constantly packed. I can honestly say I do not remember a time when the floor was empty. Tony also knew to look and see to see if the crowd was vibing with the song and if they were not, made sure to switch songs in a swift, but professional manner.
I could not have been happier with my choice in Sounds Abound and Tony Ho and we would gladly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a DJ on their special day.
Thank you for making our day that much more memorable.
-Matt and Jess

We picked Sounds Abound and specifically, Tony Ho, because he DJed a friends wedding and were able to dance the whole night through at that wedding.
Our wedding was no different. Everyone raved about the DJ and how the dance floor was packed all night. The price was reasonable and the planning was easy. I liked that the package included a meeting with our DJ and the online planner. Everything was great!
May 4, 2013
Tony was very nice, professional and easy to work with. He took the time to get to know us better and to make sure he played music that our guests wanted to hear. Tony and his crew showed up early to set up and make sure everything was going as planned. He didn't mind making a few last minute changes to our music selection. Our reception was a lot of fun and thanks to Tony the dance floor was packed all night long. The photo booth operator was also very professional and friendly. Our guests had a great time dancing and getting their pictures taken in the booth. We would recommend Tony and Sounds Abound!
March 2, 2013
Sounds Abound definitely lives up to their outstanding reputation! We are still reliving every moment of our wedding day. Tony Ho was absolutely amazing...truly the perfect DJ for our wedding! Planning an out-of-town wedding has it's challenges, but Tony made us feel at ease about our entertainment with his open communication, helpful suggestions, and confidence. Each and every one of our guests had an awesome time, and so many of them commented to us about how fun the party was! Thank you Sounds Abound and Tony Ho!
May 25, 2013
Having Sounds Abound for our wedding ceremony and reception was simply awesome! All of the staff we worked with were so helpful. Jeff Wells emailed us frequently to offer assistance, answer our questions, and to keep us on track in the planning process. He really helped us a lot! And our DJ Tony Ho was fantastic!! Tony kept in contact frequently as well, and really worked with us to give us the experience we wanted. The ceremony music he provided was absolutely perfect, and the reception music & entertainment were amazing! Tony is such a fun DJ and he kept everybody entertained and made our day just so special. We are so glad to have had him! Everything about our experience with Sounds Abound was awesome. They made us feel truly valued from the start and we are confident that we could not have chosen a more perfect DJ for our wedding day!!
May 19, 2013
We had Tony Ho for our wedding and he was amazing. We have had so many people come up to us and tell us how amzing our DJ was. He played a mix of everything that we liked. It all flowed so well. We would recommend Tony to anyone who has asked us for DJ's. If we had to do it all over again, we would call Tony right away!!!!!
April 27, 2013
DJ Tony Ho was an awesome person, host, and DJ! We could not have asked for a better DJ! He is so friendly, accommodating, quick to address issues, energetic, and kind. He is very respectful to the guests and wedding party. Throughout the wedding and reception, he played all the songs we wanted and loved. All the guests loved his music choices and his entertaining MC skills. All of us had great time singing and dancing throughout our special day. We would recommend Tony to be anyone's DJ. He truly is the best and a sweet person! We'd like to thank Tony and the wonderful staff at Sounds Abound Entertainment 🙂
April 28, 2013
We worked with Tony and he was great! We were very last minute and unprepared, but when we told Tony the style of music we wanted, he made everything happen. He was also our MC and made everything flow smoothly. He was easy to work with! And we received many compliments about the music!! I highly recommend Tony Ho as MC and DJ!

We chose Sounds Abound because of Tony Ho. Tony was the DJ at our friend's wedding in May 2010. He was so wonderful at their wedding that we just had to have him DJ at ours.
Tony and his assistant did not disappoint. He was timely, discreet with set up, he listened to us and delivered our dream wedding and reception. All of our friends and family said our wedding was the best wedding they had ever been to and the most fun. Tony and his assistant kept EVERYONE on the dance floor the entire night. It was the best night ever, even the groom, Eddie said he didn't think he was going to dance that much. He was "just going to sit back and watch the girls dance" but he was on the dance floor the entire night.
Tony made it such a memorable night for us all. Thank you Sounds Abound and Tony Ho!
December 28, 2012
Everyone that we worked with at Sounds Abound was wonderful. As soon as we booked our venue, my Mom said "You have to book Tony Ho for your DJ." DJ Tony did such a great job at my sister's wedding 3 years ago, it was a no-brainer. He is such a sweet guy, and he is a fabulous MC and DJ. Our guests were raving about the music all night. We would gladly refer him and Sounds Abound to any friends and family looking for wedding music.

Dana & Tim – October 20, 2012
“Weeks after our wedding, guests are still talking about how much fun they had at the reception. The dance floor was packed ALL night. Tony was so easy to work with…we just gave him a general idea of what we were looking for and he took care of the rest. We also had a couple of special requests and Tony handled them perfectly. We had the best time! Thanks Tony!”
Stefanie & Sean – October 13, 2012
“Tony called me periodically starting months before the wedding making sure all my questions were answered and I knew what to expect. The days leading up he went over the schedule with me, the songs, introductions, pronunciations of names, etc. It put my mind at ease that I didn’t have to worry about a thing. I had so many people come up to me and tell me what an amazing DJ we had chosen! The songs were perfect, they were played at the just the right times. It was a nonstop party. Even my 80 year old grandmother was out on the dance floor towards the end of the night. Usually she goes home after dinner, but she stayed till the end! People who had their wedding the weeks and months prior to mine came up to me and told me that our DJ did a fantastic job and they wish they would have known about him! Tony kept the party going and looked like he had so much fun doing what he loves to do. It is now 3 days after the wedding and I am still getting texts and e-mails saying what a blast people had and I know its because we had a great DJ. One friend even said “I run 26 miles and I don’t hurt, I go home after the night of your wedding and my feet are killing me because I danced so much, the music was fantastic!”. I hands down recommend Tony Ho as your wedding DJ, you will have the time of your life! Definitely a wedding to remember.”
Kelly & Dillon – October 6, 2012
“Tony did a great job at our wedding reception. He was a breeze to work with from beginning to end. I think he had a great time at our reception as well. Would recommend him to anyone that is even thinking of using him. Very professional, fun and did an excellent job.”
Kristen & Brett – October 5, 2012
“Tony was a FANTASTIC DJ! I think the most comments I received was about how great the music was. The best part was we only picked out about ten songs and Tony picked out the rest. He was very easy to work with and I would highly recommend him to anyone in the future!”
Allison & Luke – September 29, 2012
“Tony Ho and the whole Sounds Abound staff were amazing from start to finish! Our day was perfect and people are STILL talking about our music and DJ a week later! Thank you so much for being such a big part in our memorable day!!!! Wouldn’t change a thing!”
Allison & Mike- September 15, 2012
“The entire experience was excellent. Tony Ho did a fabulous job and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.”
Ashley & Bob – September 8, 2012
“We chose Sounds Abound after multiple recommendations, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to our friends! Tony was a great fit for us – he kept the dance floor hoppin’ all night long! Tony also picked up on our love of Disney World and played a few Disney songs during the night – which was met with an enthusiastic thumbs up from us! 🙂 I’m still amazed that Tony was able to mix classic slow songs, hip hop, Disney and 80s/90s pop together – but he made our playlist work. We loved everything about our DJ experience! :)”
Meghan & Mike – September 2, 2012
“Tony Ho and everyone at Sounds Abound were amazing throughout the entire process!! We would highly recommend Tony to any of our friends and family in the future.”
Ali & Joren – August 11, 2012

Aija & Andrew – August 4, 2012
“Overall, we thought Sounds Abound did a fantastic job meeting our wedding/reception needs. Our DJ, Tony, was fantastic and we had many comments at the end of the night saying how much fun our wedding was. Everyone enjoyed the photo booth and the attendant was very attentive to our guests. We would definitely recommend Sounds Abound to any couple looking for an entertainment service.”
Elise & Vince – August 3, 2012
“Tony, Tony, Tony, Wow, WOW, WOW! Thank you, seriously, FOR EVERYTHING! You did all that we asked and more and I had such a blast! You know you have an awesome DJ when people come to say good-bye to the bride and she doesn’t want to talk to them because “her song” is on! LOL Loved every minute of it, everyone said that they had a great time and we were beyond pleased. I know I’ve told you before but just knowing we were going to have you as our DJ was the biggest sighs of relief. We’ve been to plenty of wedding’s where the DJ sucks (as I’m sure you have) but from the beginning, I knew that we didn’t have to worry. I felt totally comfortable leaving everything in your hands, from making sure that we are sitting at the right time, to telling us when to walk around, to setting up the sound system for our wedding so everyone can hear our vows, to setting up the slideshow, the list goes on and on, you were a big reason why our day was so great and we are so thankful! I really just want you to come to our house parties so you can rock it out for us, lol. Thanks so much Tony!”
Katie & Eric – July 21, 2012
“Thank you Sounds Abound and Tony Ho. The music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception was perfect. The music was fun and kept everybody moving. Tony was so easy to work with. He called me to work personally with me to make sure he clarified all my requests and to get to know us better and understand us. Tony did a great job fulfilling all our music requests. I would definitely recommend Sounds Abound and Tony to anyone. :)”

Melanie (MOB) – Melody & Matt – July 1, 2012
“I want to tell you how the djs Tony Ho and Keith made my daughter’s wedding so special. They came early and were set up at the Seven Bridges Golf Course before we even got there. They did the sound for the ceremony and everything went wonderful. We are not experienced at weddings and they made us look smooth and more prepared than we were. They arranged for the entrance of everyone, the annoucements of times like cake cutting, and kept the music going until midnight when the last guest left. People who had never been on the dance floor before couldn’t resist. Everyone had a fun time and many people commented it was the best wedding reception ever.”
Kelly & Matt – June 22, 2012
“Tony was wonderful! Could not ask for a better DJ! He was so helpful with the flow of the night!”
Kari & John – June 16, 2012

Ana & Jim – Rose (MOB) – June 2, 2012
“What a job Tony did for our wedding day!!!!!!!!!! All the before planning he was a perfect gentlemen; never did we notice any impatience in his voice with all our last min planning.He rocked the night! I heard he was one of your best and I am glad we were able to book him for the wedding. Many thanks the day was perfect and everyone is still talking about the night. We love Tony and he did a great job contacting us and a great job at the wedding. I had to make him quit so everyone would go home.”
Allie & Chad – May 27, 2012

Nicole & John – April 14, 2012
“John and I would like to take a few minutes to let you know how happy we are to have chosen Sounds Abound for our DJ service. The overall professionalism of the company was outstanding. Tony Ho was the best possible DJ! He was awesome to work with prior to the wedding, taking into consideration all of our comments and wishes. He gave us great feedback and was a pleasure to work with. He did an awesome job taking our music styles and using them for cocktail hour and dinner music – it was a huge hit and we loved it! Tony got everybody moving and excited before the dancing even started! The dance floor was packed by the first song and stayed that way all night. Everyone commented on what a great DJ we had. I really appreciated how Tony took our personal music tastes and worked them into the entire reception, I really felt like everything was perfect! I would definitely recommend Sounds Abound and especially Tony Ho to anyone planning a wedding! Thank you for making our special day extra special!”
Anne – New Baby Celebration – January 21, 2012
“I am very happy with your company and DJ Tony Ho – So were my guest. My neice Kelly and Dan used you for their wedding and DJ Tony Ho and he was great so thats why I went with your company and Him. I was extremely happy with everything and would use him again. Thank you for a great experience.”

“All I can say is wow. Tony Ho is the best DJ ever. Everyone that came to our wedding wanted his name and company’s name. He put on a unreal show. The dance floor was packed from the start of the night till the last song played. We can’t say enough about Sounds Abound and how they made our night perfect. We recommend using them if you want your night to be perfect! Thanks Sounds Abound.”
Laura & Matt – October 8, 2011
“Tony Ho was the DJ for our wedding, and did an absolutely AMAZING job! From the music during the cocktail hour, during dinner, and during the reception, everything was exactly what we wanted. Tony even went out to show everyone the Cupid Shuffle and singing it while showing everyone! We asked for a Club atmosphere, and between the Intel Lighting, Up Lighting, and Tony – you all went above and beyond. Our friends are still talking about how awesome everything was!!!! Improvements for the future: Don’t lose Tony!!!”
Heidi & Kevin – October 7, 2011
“Tony Ho and his assistant were awesome. Our friends have commented on how much they liked him, and thought his music selection was perfect as he played songs they loved or had grown up loving. He did a great job meeting the needs of all generations. He had a great personality. We were thankful he shared his birthday with us! We would recommend Tony for anyone looking for a great party, great music and tons of fun.”
Erica & Scott – September 23, 2011
“Sounds Abound was awesome from start to finish! We used Sounds Abound for uplighting (which looked great!) as well as DJ services for our wedding reception in September 2011 at the Westin in Lombard. Also, the Sounds Abound office has a wedding shop with a huge selection of invitations and wedding accessories (toasting flutes, ring bearer pillows, bridal party gifts, etc.), which I definitely visited to purchase some things for my wedding! Jeff was great to work with during the time leading up to our wedding, and he answered all of our questions very promptly via email and telephone. The website is also very easy to use and has a lot of helpful information on it, including video clips of each DJ at actual past weddings, which we thought was great. We chose Tony Ho as our DJ based on the videos, because what we saw was exactly what we wanted at our wedding – a fun, energetic and engaging DJ. We definitely made the right choice with Tony! We had a telephone meeting with him before our wedding where we discussed our music likes/dislikes (we are into dance/club/B96 and KissFM type music, which he said he also liked), and he and the 2nd DJ, Mike, totally hit it on the mark at our reception. We loved every song they played, and our friends (and us!) barely left the dance floor from 9pm to 1am. Even when the reception was over, the lights came on, and they started playing Justin Bieber to let us know it was time to go, we all kept dancing anyway since we were having such an amazing time all night! Tony Ho made our wedding so much fun for us and our guests, and we couldn’t be happier with how our wedding turned out thanks to Tony Ho and Sounds Abound!”
Kelly & Justin – September 17, 2011
“We could not have asked for a better time! We have gotten so many compliments about the music – everyone was talking about how great the music choices were. We even had some people ask for the playlists! People thought we had picked all the songs ourselves – they were surprised when I told them it was all Tony! He definitely understood the type of music and the type of atmosphere we were looking for. He took the time to really ask us about our music preferences and how we wanted that to play out in the reception. We were beyond pleased with everything from beginning to end and will definitely be recommending Tony and Sounds Abound to our friends!”
Brooke & Jason – September 10, 2011
“Great from start to finish! The office staff provided immediate help, the booking process was seamless, and Tony Ho was an awesome DJ and kept the dance floor packed all night! Keep up the great work!”
Natalie & Peter – September 3, 2011
“Tony was awesome! We were very pleased with his performance and would happily recommend him to any future clientele! We were actually pleased with Sounds Abound and their communication. As we were planning our Wedding we found that many vendors took for granted the communication aspect and did not overly communicate with us. This was not the case with Sounds Abound as we appreciated their communication!”
Christine & Colby – August 13, 2011
“Tony was fantastic! He got everyone on the dance floor and kept them there all night! We cant thank Sounds Abound and Tony enough. Thank you for your professionalism. We would highly recommend Sounds Abound.”
Michelle & Gary – August 6, 2011
“Tony was amazing at the wedding. Our goal was to have the dance floor packed the whole night and we still can’t believe how many people were on the dance floor all night. Tony kept an open line of communication with me the weeks leading up to the wedding and that was very re-assuring. He took our recommendations on the type of music we wanted and he couldn’t have put it together any better. The intro’s were great and he had an excellent report with everything involved in the wedding. Hands down A+ and will recommend to everyone in the future.”
Vicki & Chris – August 5, 2011
“Tony did a wonderful job keeping the music going and keeping everyone on the dance floor. We also had a guest from the wedding next door come in and say he was doing great and asked for a business card.”
Megan & Rory – July 29, 2011
“Tony Ho was FABULOUS!!! He kept the dance floor rocking and picked songs that I absolutely love and so did my guests. I actually stayed on the dance floor all night because I couldn’t stop dancing. I know guests put requests in and he listened and played them. He was very approachable and listened to how I wanted the night to go. We were suppose to meet in person before the wedding to go over some details and he was unable to meet due a situation. He was in contact with me about that several times and we spoke over the phone. He provided a calm demeanor and I knew the wedding was in good hands!! I can’t say enough about Tony. Everyone had a great time. He even got my new husband to dance, which is not easy!!! Tony also provided music for the ceremony and it was perfect. He was there early and was very organized. Thank you for a great night!! The only thing is, the night went too fast because we were having too much fun!!”
Amber & Michael – July 23, 2011
“Tony did an amazing job. He played all the songs we requested and kept the dance floor packed the entire night. We had a great time and so did our guests. He even got our grandmother who is on a wheelchair out on the dance floor with everyone. We will definitely be referring you to others”
Kate & Kevin – July 15, 2011
“Tony was excellent.”
Andrea & Kevin – July 9, 2011
“Wonderful! My sister used Sounds Abound for her wedding, who then recommended it for my new brother-in-laws wedding, and then mine. I will continue to pass on the reference! 🙂 Thanks for a wonderful experience! You guys are great! Continue to do exactly what you do! It was nothing but wonderful from start to finish. Tony Ho was so friendly, funny and helpful. He made our day so fun! Our family and friends had a great time and danced the night away. Thank you, Tony for everything! Wish you the best! Thanks for being our DJ! :)”
Julie & Jeff – June 25, 2011
“I was more than impressed with Sounds Abound and our DJ Tony Ho. We had such an amazing wedding experience with a good portion of it being due to the fun atmosphere created by your team. Before dinner even started, Tony had 1/2 our guest out of their seat and on the dance floor. People did not leave the dance floor ALL night except when we were told to sit down so we could be served dinner. The wonderful comments we got about your service from our friends and family have not ended. Unfortunately I suffered a knee injury that night on the dance floor, however, Sounds Abound took no time at all to run out and get me a knee brace. I can not thank them enough as this seriously saved the night!!! Tony played a wide variety of music that kept people moving – including my 85 year old grandma. He also continued to play past his allotted time (the crowd continued to chant “one more song!!”). I really could not have expected anything better. We were 100%+ satisfied and wish we could do it all over again. Thank you for making our wedding so special!”
Kirby & Russell – June 24, 2011
“I have nothing but good things to say about Sounds Abound from booking my wedding day to the very last song played at the reception. Anytime I had any questions there was always someone there to help. My DJ Tony even met with me before the event, just to make me feel better about some of my personal requests. Tony was awesome!! Great personality and very professional. He looked great at the wedding, matching my wedding colors of black and yellow:) He played all of the right music and just did an overall amazing job. Aside from the music being one of mine AND my husbands favorite parts of the night, it was one of the best compliments we got for the whole day and night. Everyone loved the music played!! I honestly have nothing to add. All I can do is thank you for helping to make my wedding day so special. Please do not hesitate to use me as a referral in the future it would be the least I could do:)”
Natalie & Brian – June 18, 2011
“Tony Ho was absolutely amazing!! We are so incredibly thankful to have had such a wonderful DJ for our wedding. People are still talking about what wonderful music we had. Everyone was out there dancing – kids, grandparents, friends. His music choice was so fun and kept the whole party dancing. We are absolutely incredibly thankful to have had Tony Ho. In addition, he was extremely nice and personable. He was incredibly professional. And he made us feel calm by his good organizational skills. Truly we feel he made such a large impact on the success of our wedding. Special thanks to Tony!!!”
Ann Marie & Ted – May 6, 2011
“Tony Ho was very professional. He did what we asked and he gauged the crowd well — he played the right songs at the right time. He helped make our wedding reception very fun.”
Brenda & Jason – April 30, 2011
“Everyone was very helpful through my whole wedding process. Tony Ho did a fantastic job at the reception. I got a lot of compliments. Thank you so much, everything was great!”
Kelli & Patrick – December 11, 2010
“Our overall Sounds Abound experience was just great! I love the online planner and payment plan. Tony Ho was amazing! He was great to work with and his upbeat attitude and demeanor are awesome! He was the perfect DJ for our wedding. We feel very lucky that he was there with us. Keep up the good work. :)”
Tina & Albert – November 27, 2010
“My wife Tina and I speak on behalf of our guests when we say that we had a fantastic time and truly enjoyed the entertainment provided by Sounds Abound. Tony was extremely professional, starting even before the actual event. He provided timely responses to our emails during the preparation for the reception and was always very courteous. The night of our reception, he was all set up and ready to go long before things got started. The music played during cocktails and dinner was exactly as we had requested and set the perfect atmosphere for the evening. The best part of the evening was the dancing, and I can assure you that Tony brought a great deal of energy to the party. He even got out on the dance floor and taught everyone how to do the Cupid Shuffle, something which the guests really appreciated. Tony played nearly all of our requests, and any other special requests we had for the evening (music for the cake cutting, first dance, etc) were perfectly executed. It was a shame that the evening went by so quickly, since we would’ve loved to keep the party alive. In summary, we were delighted to have Tony as our DJ and would instantly recommend him to anyone looking for a stellar DJ.”
Lindsay & Andy – November 6, 2010
“Tony Ho was a great DJ. He kept the guests dancing til the very end. He was incredibly interactive and a lot of fun to work with. I highly recommend Tony as a DJ!!”
Jennifer & Jason – October 10, 2010
“Tony kept the party going until the end! We had a delay in timing due to wedding parties being late..So we were forced to kill time with certain things, so I think that cues were off a bit, and because of the requests by certian people, a few of our picked songs were not played. Tony rolled with all the craziness! BUT we all had a great time, and Tony had us dancing all night, well until we had to leave! Everyone loved Tony, he got a standing “o” and a big round of applause at the end of the night! You guys are great!”
Carrie & Mike – October 9, 2010
“Tony Ho did an incredible job for our wedding, we had nothing but compliments on finding such a great DJ. I would HIGHLY recommend Tony to anyone that wants a great DJ that will do whatever it takes to make the event run smoothly and provide an exciting atmosphere. After all the planning and worrying you have with everyone involved in an event of this magnitude this will be the one decision that you will not have to worry about. The online planning was easy to use and made it one of the quickest and easiest parts of the day to plan. I would tell anyone i knew that they would be crazy not to request Tony Ho for their event. Thanks Tony! We were very pleased with everything.”
Jessica & Garrett – September 25, 2010
“Tony Ho is by far one of the best wedding DJ’s there is! From the moment the reception started, our guests were on the dance floor! Our reception was supposed to end at 11:30 and there were still over half our guests dancing the night away and Tony kept the party going!I’ve never seen so much “fist-pumping” at a wedding!! All of our requested music was played and Tony played music for every age…a very special moment was having the dance floor cleared for our 90 year old great uncle so he could dance with his wife. I will be telling everyone I know that is planning a wedding to hire Sounds Abound and Tony Ho. It was an amazing experience. Having a great DJ is one of the most important aspects to a great wedding….and Sounds Abound exceeded our expectations by a long shot! Thank you for making our wedding so memorable and perfect!!”
Carolyn & Mitch – September 5, 2010
“Tony was fabulous – he was nothing but friendly and professional and played exactly the music that we wanted. He helped make our wedding extremely special and memorable for us. More than anything- he kept the dance floor full all night long!!”
Mirjana & Dan – September 4, 2010
“I had the best time at our wedding. My experience with Sounds Abound was great but our DJ was THE BEST! He played exactly the kind of music we wanted and stayed away from line dances or typical “wedding music”. Tony Ho was so nice, professional, and a pleasure to work with. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I would definitely recommend Sounds Abound!”
Heather & Mark – August 27, 2010
“Tony was great! We had multiple guests ask us who he was and if there was a playlist available. They wanted the list for themselves!”
Vanessa & Washington – August 14, 2010
“We really can’t even put words down on how much we really appreciated working with Sounds Abound. To begin with they help convert some of the music we had into MP3 for us and then the follow up service was just unreal. The whole Sounds Abound team really made things seem so easy and really issue free. Thank you once again.”
Kendall & Jeff – July 31, 2010
“Tony and his assistant did a very nice job at our reception. Both Jeff (the groom) and I were very pleased with the night and Tony’s ability to keep a smaller reception on the dance floor. Tony was also able to react accordingly to changes in the wedding party for the announcements. Thanks again for being part of our special day.”
Jenna & Toml – July 23, 2010
“Dear Tony, Thank you so much for DJ-ing our recent wedding. You were nothing less than fantastic. From cocktails, to dinner, to dancing, the music totally reflected us. You kept the dance floor packed all night, even my 90year-old grandmother was out there! Our guests are still talking about how much fun they had, and a lot of that had to do with you. Thank you for making our reception so memorable.”
Laura & Michael – July 11, 2010
“Fantastic. We had a lot of compliments on the music and overall that it was a great party. Everyone stayed on the dance floor the entire time. We were really impressed.”
Heather & Adam – July 9, 2010
“From our booking meeting through the wedding the experience was great. Tony did a terrific job playing music that he felt reflected Heather and I. Tony looked extremely professional at the wedding and overall it was a terrific night and a great experience with Tony.”
Nevena & Alex – July 4, 2010
“Tony Ho was incredible. He did an awesome job. The music was great. Everyone commented to me afterwards how great the DJ was. You guys completely exceeded our expectations! Keep doing what you’re doing! Thanks so much.”
Marianne & Ian – June 27, 2010
“Sounds Abound was amazing to work with. The level of professionalism and accessibility exceeded my expectations entirely! The online planner was extremely helpful during the planning process and I felt supported and encouraged by not only my DJ, Tony Ho, but the rest of the Sounds Abound staff through the months leading up to the wedding. Tony Ho was responsive and attentive in hearing my ideas for song selection while also offering his own advice regarding the music and reception timeline. The music on the day was perfect and seamless from dinner all the way through the evening. Some guests who don’t even like dancing were up and on the dance floor! Overall, Sounds Abound and Tony Ho were amazing to work with and I would gladly recommend them to others. Keep up the good work! Continue having open houses as that was the way I really got to know about your work!”
Michelle & Josh – June 18, 2010
“Tony Ho was awesome!! We have received so many compliments from our guests, which is how we booked him in the first place! Thanks for helping make our night amazing!”
Victoria & Andres – June 4, 2010 Tania (MOB)
“Tony was excellent.”
Courtney & Tony – May 29, 2010
“The music was awesome and Tony Ho kept the party going all night. He was fun to see him join us on the dance floor and interact with our guests. I am not saying this because it’s our wedding but best wedding DJ service we have seen.”
Jenny & Phil – May 16, 2010
“Thank you so much for going outside the box and playing the songs I wanted! Music makes or breaks an event for me and I couldn’t stop dancing. Everyone LOVED the music and you! I’ve recommended you to everyone I know and if we ever need a DJ again I will go to you! Thank you for creating the atmosphere I imagined.”
Becky & Matt – May 15, 2010
“Tony was wonderful. He checked in a few times to make sure that things were going alright for us, and that we were happy with everything. He did a great job, and was great to have at the wedding.”
Renae & Steve – December 19, 2009
“It has been over a month since our wedding and our friends are still talking about how great our DJ was. ..everyone LOVED the music. Also, we had a lot of things not go according to plan, and Tony was really flexible and accommodating.”
Jacqueline & Matt – November 21, 2009
“We are repeat customers of Sounds Abound. Four years ago we had the owner Ken as our DJ and he did a great job. Ken wasn’t available for my other daughter’s wedding this November so we watched all the DJ’s video and the bride and groom picked Tony Ho. Tony was perfect! He called the bride and groom several times before the wedding and made a great job of knowing exactly what they wanted. He was fun but not “over the top.” We had our own video montage and Sounds Abound played it for us during the salad. We did however, have the upgrade Dancing With the Stars… well worth the money!”
Meghan & Jason – November 14, 2009
“Tony, We wanted to thank you for making our reception as “happening” as it was! We received So Much feedback and compliments about the music and your expertise. You kept the dance floor packed and that is truly what we wanted! ”
Katherine & Dan – November 7, 2009
“I agonized over picking a DJ for our wedding reception, as I truly believe that the right DJ makes or breaks the entire reception experience. Well, we sure picked right! From beginning to end, Tony Ho played excellent music exactly in the theme of what we had asked for and what our crowd was responding to. In our pre-reception meeting, Tony and I had discussed the use of specialty dances and my opinion was that every reception needs them at some point to get people to stay on the floor…so in that situation, go ahead and use them…but let’s keep them to a minimum. Well, not one specialty dance needed to be played! Our floor was packed from the first through the very last song! People had a wonderful time and I can’t thank Sounds Abound enough. Thank-you for going above and beyond. Oh-and one more thing-we also booked the photo booth services through Sounds Abound…HUGE hit! And the scrapbook is a fun and hilarious keepsake for my husband and me! I wouldn’t have changed a thing!!”
Tricia & Russ – October 24, 2009
“Tony, Wow!! Russ and I can’t stop talking about how amazing last night was. When my parents asked us what we wanted out of our wedding, we said, “A BASH!” We took selecting a DJ very seriously as from the 50+ weddings we’ve been to over the last 10 years, we learned quickly that a DJ makes or breaks the night. We had high expectations for you and for Sounds Abound. You over-delivered 100 fold. Our guests commented throughout the night how great you were several times. You nailed every detail…the pronunciation of the bridal party names, the entrance we wanted was very specific, you custom cut our entrance song to make it perfect, we didn’t even ask you to…you read our minds. There was not a moment throughout the night when the dance floor wasn’t packed. You really played a major part in giving us the wedding we always dreamed of. We loved your energy, your spirit, and your attitude. You are just AWESOME. We will proudly promote you and your services… the good news is, I have two brothers that aren’t married yet….I don’t think you’ve seen the last of us. :)”
Christina & Steve – October 17, 2009
“The customer service was wonderful from the first meeting when we were trying to choose our DJ, to the time we booked, all throughout the planning process and up through our wedding day. Our DJ kept the dance floor packed the whole night, which was important to us. Our friends still tell us how much fun they had dancing the night away at our wedding. I have recommended Sounds Abound, and will continue to recommend them, for any friends and family getting married. Thank you for making our reception a real party!”
Kristen & Steve – October 9, 2009
“The music at our reception was fantastic. There was a great mix of music and people were out on the dance floor all night! Tony played all the songs we requested and really set the tone for the night. I would recommend Sounds Abound and Tony to anyone who is looking for a DJ/MC for an event.”
Jessica & Joel – September 19, 2009
“Tony Ho was amazing! He was so thorough and really kept in contact with us throughout our engagement until the wedding day. We got so many compliments on our DJ and the music he played and everyone was out dancing! He helped make our night spectacular! We really appreciated everything Tony and Sounds Abound did for us.”
Sharon & Lawrence – September 4, 2009
“Tony was a rockstar! From planning to the actual wedding day, Tony was really fun to work with. All of the guests loved the music that was played at the wedding and I would love to be at another wedding where Tony is the DJ.”
Arvee & Doug – August 8, 2009
“Tony Ho was perfect!”
Sarah & Matt – August 15, 2009
“Tony Ho did a fantastic job! In preparing for the wedding we probably had more song suggestions and do not plays than the norm- but Tony was very helpful & worked with us the entire way leading up to the event. He really listened to our choices & also added more selections that kept with our tastes and the different backgrounds of our guests! Even during dinner- I had people come up to us at the head table to tell us HOW AWESOME the music was- in fact I had people keep asking us when the dancing was going to start because they were already excited by the dinner music. When the dance portion of the evening started- EVERYONE got on the dance floor and this continued until the end of the night. Everyone- even my 85 year old grandma- danced the night away! People have asked us for the playlist! People we have never seen dance and people who claimed they had never danced at weddings before were getting down! During the night, the next day & the days that followed- people have called me, my husband & my parents to say that the reception was awesome & they still have blisters on their feet from all the dancing. Tony Ho definitely helped make our wedding reception a true celebration!”
Melissa & Matt – July 18, 2009
“Our experience was awesome. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Tony Ho was awesome! He made our reception a night to remember! We asked him to make it seem like a party more than a typical reception, and he did. Tony had a lot of energy, which made the night even better! We had a lot of people come up to us and say that he was the best DJ they have heard. Thank you for everything!! Improvements for the future: Everything was great.”
Lelsie & Brian – July 11, 2009
“Brian and I were pleased with our overall Sounds Abound experience. Not only did we use Sounds Abound for our DJ services we also got our invitations at Sounds Abound. Tony Ho was a fantastic DJ. He played all the songs we requested and kept the party going. Thanks for everything, Tony.”
Heather & Justin – July 10, 2009
“We’ve been getting rave reviews from friends and family about how much fun they had at our wedding, and it’s thanks to Tony Ho. He did a fantastic job of catering to the crowd and playing songs everyone could enjoy and dance to. The dance floor was full all night, and all our guests were clearly having a great time. We couldn’t have asked for more!! Thanks Tony!”
Nicki & Phil – June 27, 2009
“Thank you so much for the perfect musical experience! We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ! Keep up the great work, Tony!”
Annie & James – June 26, 2009
“My husband and I got to work with DJ Tony Ho from Sounds Abound-and he was AWESOME!! he got people involved, but in a fun way where they wanted to get up and dance, he played great music, he had a great personality and was super friendly! We had a HUGE wedding party and he never skipped a beat or mispronounced a name! Everybody asked me who I used and I couldn’t have been happier with my DJ and his assistant! The company as a whole was also a pleasure to work with and their prices were really good. The value was unbeatable between the great people of Sounds bound and the quality they put out! ”
Cheryl & Andrew – June 20, 2009
“Tony and the music were great! My family and friends let loose and danced their hearts out. It was a wonderful asset to our celebration. Tony was very professional in appearance and nature. He also was helpful in guiding us in through the order of events for the evening. Thanks Tony!”
Kelli & Kevin – June 13, 2009
“Tony did an excellent job DJing at our wedding. He had the dance floor filled the entire time. He did a great job with the music selection to keep the crowd going. I would definitely recommend him to others to use for their wedding.”
Lisa & William – June 6, 2009
“Will and I could not have asked for a better DJ than Tony Ho. He knew exactly what type of music to play and played everything that we put on the must play list! The dance floor was full the whole time and people are still giving us compliments on the music. I would definitely recommend Tony to anyone. Thanks Tony!!!”
Nicole & Ben – May 30, 2009
“Tony Ho was awesome! He coordinated the night beautifully. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. And he kept the dance floor packed! We had SO much fun and that is in large part due to his outstanding service. I would recommend Sounds Abound to any of my friends or family without hesitation. All the staff we interacted with were extremely helpful and made the whole wedding planning process simple and stress free. Thank you for making my wedding a memorable one!”
Young-Sun & Marshall – May 16, 2009
“We are so glad that we went with Sounds Abound. From the initial consultation with Jeff to Ken’s assistance on the DVD montage and Tony Ho as our DJ/MC, Sounds Abound made things so easy for us. Everyone at Sounds Abound were professionals and followed through on your services. You guys know how to satisfy your customers! Thank you for making our wedding such a memorable day. We would like to especially Thank Tony Ho for being a fabulous DJ/MC. We all had a great time at the reception.”

We will truly be sending weddings to you if we hear from our friends! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”
Jill & Andy – December 6, 2008
“Tony Ho did a fantastic job! He kept the dance floor full all night. Six weeks after the reception, I’m still hearing compliments on our great DJ from our guests. I’m recommending him to anyone planning a wedding.”
Krystal & Raymond – October 10, 2008
“My experience was amazing!!! Everyone at the wedding including the wedding party had thought that Tony was a friend of ours! He wasn’t, we had spoken a few times before hand but that just shows how personable they are! The reason I had chosen Tony Ho was because after watching every video he was the only one I felt was the most natural! Like not reading off of a script! If your looking for a DJ no need to look any further cause they are THE BEST!!”
Sherita & Jonathan – October 4, 2008
“We would like to thank all of the Sounds Abound staff. From the booking process, to the invitations, to the picking up things here and there. The entire staff was wonderful. Everyone was polite and professional. Tony was perfect, our guests loved the DJ. He even danced with us to help us get moving in the same direction for the Cha-Cha Slide. Keep up the good work. What makes you successful is the true generosity your staff demonstrates.”
Nicole & Rich – September 27, 2008
“Tony was wonderful. We could not have asked for a better Dj for our wedding. The staff at Sounds Abound was great to work with for the DJ services and invitations.”
Amy & Tim – August 23, 2008
“Tony Ho was awesome! He took time to make sure he knew how to pronounce everyone’s names (which for some of the wedding party was very hard!). At the end of the night people were chanting his name. Since we’ve returned from our honeymoon, people have been telling us how much fun they had. People loved the music and how it progressed throughout the evening. And, so many people stayed to the end! I just can’t say enough good things about Tony!”
Katie & Chris – August 9, 2008
“Tony Ho was our DJ at our wedding. Just wanted to thank you guys so much!! He did an amazing job. In the weeks since, I can’t tell you how many of our guests have commented on how great the music was. Alot even said it was the best wedding music and most fun wedding they’d ever been to. He played alot we requested and threw in some he knew would go over well with the crowd. Great variety and great job. Thanks so much Tony!!!”
Quynh & Howard – August 2, 2008

Nicole & Jason – July 26, 2008
“Tony Ho was AWESOME! We could not have asked for a better DJ for our Wedding. He played all the songs we requested. But, more importantly he knew how to read the crowd and played all the right songs to keep the dance floor packed the entire night. We had so many comments from guests about what a wonderful time they had at the reception. And even that this was the best DJ they had ever heard at a wedding reception. We cannot praise Tony Ho and the entire Sounds Abound team enough for their great work. We will definitely be recommending Sounds Abound to all our friends.”
Jennifer & John – July 25, 2008
“Tony was amazing! He was so easy to get along with and made our night special. He played great music and kept me dancing all night long! I couldn’t have asked for more! Tony rocks!”
Saran & Brad – July 19, 2008
“We were so impressed with Sounds Abound and, especially our DJ Tony Ho. He was willing to meet with us and discuss what we were looking for in a DJ prior to the wedding. Tony was energetic and upbeat, which confirmed that he was a perfect fit for us. On the day of, Tony greeted us and took care of all of the details. He did a great job introducing our bridal party, adding comments about some of our personal details, and kept people on the dance floor from the first to the very last song. All of our guests were impressed with Tony. We are very fortunate that we were able to have Tony with us on our wedding day.”
Jodi & Aaron – June 12, 2008
“We would just like to say that Sounds Abound went above and beyond our expectations. Everything that we wanted to hear was played and NOTHING was played off of our do not play list. I’ve been to weddings before where the DJ played a lot from the do not play list. We can’t thank you enough for helping make our day special. We are definitely going to recommend you guys to everyone. Tony Ho was absolutely awesome and the office staff was so nice and helpful!!! Thank you so much!!!”
Molly & Jim – June 29, 2008

“We loved working with Sounds Abound and Tony Ho! The overall experience with Sounds Abound’s DJ service was perfect. It was effortless on our part…they took care of everything down to bringing the projector and screen for our pre-made slide show, and setting it all up for us. Tony Ho took all of our requests and shout outs, and seamlessly worked them into our reception. Our guests were on the dance floor with us from the time the music began (during dinner) through the end of the night…not a dull moment!!! We have already given Sounds Abound’s number to friends, and would recommend Tony Ho to ANYONE asking for a solid DJ…he made our reception a major success!”
Jenny & Mike – May 31, 2008
“Tony was amazing!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much for all of your hard work. I really appreciate Tony following my playlist and working with me to have the perfect wedding soundtrack. I have had numerous people call and write to me saying that the music at my wedding was the best they ever heard. My Mom, Dad, Wife, Friends and Family commented on how nice and fun Tony was. Thank you again. I set out to have the perfect DJ and playlist and not only were my expectations satisfied they were exceeded by great service.”
Jennifer & Brian – May 17, 2008
“Our overall experience far exceeded our expectations! Sounds Abound has the most friendly and helpful staff that we have ever came across! We always felt appreciated as a customer which made our planning even easier! All of our questions were always answered in a friendly and timely manner. Tony Ho was our DJ and he was incredible! He played the songs we asked, and songs he chose to play himself were great! People were on the dance floor all night and everyone had a great time! He really did an awesome job, from the introductions, to interacting with our guests and playing all the right songs a the right times! We couldn’t of asked for a better DJ! A DJ can make or break the reception, but he made it a really great time! Also the wedding montage turned out great and so did our invitations, programs and everything else we got from the Wedding Shop! We really cannot tell you enough of how happy we were to deal with Sounds Abound for our wedding planning…you guys made everything simple and stress free! It was a pleasure working with EVERYONE and we will recommend you to everyone we know!!!”
Jennifer & Steve – May 3, 2008
“I can’t even begin to tell you what a wonderful experience we had with Tony Ho. From start to finish he made our wedding an event to remember! He was a pro through and through, was able to accurately “read” our guests and play just the right music to keep them on the dance floor all night. We could not have been more pleased with our choice! We’ve already recommended Sounds Abound – and specifically Tony – to a number of friends getting married next year. Thanks to Sounds Abound and Tony! – for a job well done!”
Katherine & Zach – January 19, 2008
“Tony Ho was great! He new how to keep everyone on the dance floor. He looked awesome!”
Tara & Ryan – November 3, 2007
“My family, friends, husband and I could not have been more impressed with our Sounds Abound experience. Our DJ, Tony Ho, kept the party going on the dance floor the whole night. He couldn’t have read the crowd more perfectly. The video montage was also a huge hit with our guests. A highly recommended feature for any wedding! Thanks for making our wedding the most beautiful night we’ve ever had!”
Jennifer & Michael – October 27, 2007
“Tony Ho was wonderful! He was fun, polite and made the party rock from the moment it started to the very last song! He fit in perfectly! If he wasn’t our DJ I would have invited him to the wedding as a guest because he was tons of fun!”
Laura & Mike – September 1, 2007
“Sounds Abound was wonderful from beginning til end. Tony Ho was an excellent DJ. He was so nice and friendly to me and my husband, and all of our guests. He played everything that we requested. He was also very organized and kept the reception on track. I was so happy when he would approach me at the wedding and ask if a song could be played that one of the guests requested or he would ask when we wanted to play certain songs. He was so accommodating. Several compliments were made by the guests in regards to what a great job Tony did that night. Thank you so much….he made the day even more wonderful.”
Kelly & Collin – August 25, 2007
“WOW! What can I say??! Collin and I just wanted to thank you profusely for the amazing , excellent, energetic, outstanding, magnificent, fantastic, and artistic job that you did for us at our wedding. We had the absolute time of our lives, as did every guest there – especially all of the crowds on the dance floor!! That floor was packed the entire time because you rocked the house with all of those awesome songs! People can’t stop talking about the dance party, and how incredible “the DJ” was!!! So, thank you for creating the most fun atmosphere for our big night during those hours at the reception. We truly appreciate it, and will definitely recommend you to any and everyone that needs a DJ Master for their wedding!”
Kristin & Jimmy – August 11, 2007
“Tony Ho was great. We have had compliments on how that was the best wedding people have ever been to. I am definitely going to hire him for any other future happenings…..he should get a big raise!!!!!!!!!!!”
Jill & Nick – July 7, 2007
“I have already been highly recommending Sounds Abound to friends and acquaintances. My experience with Sounds Abound and with my DJ could not have been better. Tony did an amazing job, and I have received endless compliments on how wonderful the DJ was, and what a phenomenal job they did on the slide show…I couln’t agree more. With the endless stress of planning a wedding, it was such a treat to be able to communicate with the DJ and feel at ease about the whole experience. Thank you!”
Heather & Peter – June 30, 2007
“We had Tony Ho as our DJ, and we really had a lot of fun! He was very energetic, patient, and balanced our requests with what the guests seemed to want throughout the night. He got the polka out of the way early, which was good because it was mainly for my husband’s German relatives to enjoy. Even though we did the online planner, I think it’s best to leave a lot of control with the DJ because he’s the one that sees the demographic on the dance floor. After the wedding, I realize that the planner helped Tony to really get a feel for how we wanted the night to go. I put a good amount of “must play” songs on the list, but if something wasn’t played it’s not a big deal. I would recommend this company to any future brides. The planner was helpful to organize things without a ton of emails, and the office staff was professional yet friendly. Thanks Sounds Abound!”
Patricia – MOB Erica & Dan – June 22, 2007
“After much time in research and prayer, I found Tony Ho. I set up an appointment for my daughter and then future son-in-law to meet Tony to make sure this is who they would like for a DJ at their wedding. They agreed and liked him as much as I did. Tony was wonderful! I have always believed music can make or break the celebration of a wedding. Tony made the reception. He felt the crowd, he made beautiful introductions, he knew just what to play. We have had phone calls from friends and family telling us how good the DJ was. I am very grateful Tony was able to do our wedding and can’t wait till we plan another function where we need a DJ because Tony will be our man.”
Cindy & Mike – June 2, 2007
“Sounds Abound was a great choice for DJ service. Tony Ho did an excellent job as DJ and more importantly for us, the MC. He did an excellent job of crowd management (making sure guests were at the right place) and made the whole day VERY easy on us. On a day like a wedding, it was a huge load off our shoulders when Tony showed up (on time, actually a little early) and helped us out with very little guidance from us. We would definitely recommend Tony and Sounds Abound for any occasion.”
Jessica & Nic – June 8, 2007
“I wish that I had another event that I needed a DJ for because I wouldn’t have to spend any time looking for one – it would be Tony Ho! Our wedding was everything we imagined and more thanks to the amazing personality and skills of our DJ, Tony. Introductions were perfect as was music selection. He kept our guests on the floor until the end of the night! Everyone at Sounds Abound that my husband and I dealt with was amazing and receptive to every idea that we had. Tony was amazing and personable and really understood and executed what we dreamed of and more. Thank you for making our event so memorable! I can’t wait to recommend you to everyone I know!”
Lauren & Aaron – May 19, 2007
“About a month ago, we were VERY fortunate to have Tony Ho DJ our wedding reception. Tony Ho did a fantastic job! He accommodates the entire crowd and has a great ability to get people out on the dance floor. He knows how to get the party started and how to keep it going all night long. We have been to several receptions in which Tony has emceed and we have NEVER been disappointed. We have been and will forever recommend him to all of our friends and family. Thank you Ton Ho!!!”
Lindsay & Mike – April 28, 2007
“Everything was absolutely fantastic on our special day! Everyone had a great time and Tony did a great job. I would definitely recommend Sounds Abound to anyone. Thanks again!!!!!”
Christine (Birthday Party) – February 24, 2007
“The next time I have to hire a DJ, I will come back to Sounds Abound and I will recommend the company and Tony Ho to my friends. When I walked into Blackie’s one hour before the party was to start, Tony Ho and his assistant were standing in place, behind their table, lights on, ready to go. That was tremendously reassuring on the worst night of the winter. Tony had come from a long way away. He had called mid-week and sounded professional. He said, with sincerity, that he was going to do everything he could to make the party a success. When I said that we wanted disco music, he said, “I like disco,” which was also reassuring. He was resourceful, having left messages for me at work and on my cell. He also contacted Blackie’s in advance. The Sounds Abound staff was professional every time I called. the website was good and the on-line planner was a good too., and the price was reasonable.”
Jaelithe & John – January 20, 2007
“I just wanted to take a minute to personally thank Tony Ho for the service he provided at our wedding reception. He was absolutely fabulous! He was able to coral all of our groomsmen and bridesmaids to actually be in the same spot long enough to be introduced. Tony was able to get young and old alike onto the dance floor including my 80 year old grandmother and grand aunts with a polka and also a cha cha slide or 2. He was able to mix the music that we wanted to be played with music that every wedding should have. Tony also had to do some work on the fly when a musical performer we had previously arranged had to back out at the last minute. Tony, knowing our attitude toward music was able to come up with intro music for my wife and myself 15 minutes prior to our introduction. Through it all Tony remained professional and courteous and also just an all around excellent DJ. I would recommend Tony to anybody planning a wedding with a diverse age group or a strange clientele like 200 firemen. Thank you for your service. It made our day that much more special.”
Jen & Roy – December 2, 2006
“I just wanted to send a quick message about Tony Ho. He was our DJ for our wedding in December and was outstanding! He had previously done a friend’s wedding and we wanted him for ours too! Recently my husband and I attended another friend’s wedding where Tony was also the DJ. He really made us feel special by playing our wedding song with a small shout out to us, as well the song of the other couple. I originally thought that the bride and groom had given him the info as a special request but upon asking the Bride, learned that he came prepared with the two songs and asked if he could play them. We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ but after this last wedding, I truly feel that Tony is a class act who goes above and beyond each and every time. Please extend our thanks to Tony for making us relive a special moment of our own wedding!”
Kate & Nick – November 4, 2006
“Tony was the DJ for our wedding. He was fantastic, he played all the songs we requested and read the crowd perfectly to keep the dance floor full. He exceeded our expectations; I must say, I don’t normally dance in public, but I danced the whole night and had a blast. He really made our night memorable and fun. We also got a lot of compliments from our guests about what a great job he did! We are very happy we chose him and your company for our wedding and will highly recommend you to everyone!”
Kathleen & Peter – October 28, 2006
“We had a blast with DJ Tony Ho! All of our guests kept complimenting us on how great the DJ was. We really could not have asked for a better evening! Thank you!”
Traci & Jay – October 21, 2006
“Sounds Abound was awesome. The reception was the best. Tony followed all our instructions and gave it his personal touch. People were on the dance floor all night. I would recommend Sounds Abound to anyone for their wedding and Tony Ho as well. He took good care of us all night.”
Kathleen & Scott – October 14, 2006
“Scott and I would like to thank Tony so much for making our reception a night to remember. What a wonderful way for us to celebrate with all our family and friends by dancing the night away. We had such a great time and have gotten so many remarks on how great the music and dancing was. It was great to see so many people still enjoying the celebration to the last song. Tony helped put our mind at ease after our meeting and went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you again and we will be sure to recommend you to all our friends!”
Kate & Steve – October 7, 2006
“Steve and I could not have been happier with Tony Ho’s performance and interaction with our guests. He took the time to meet with us before our wedding and incorporated everything we were looking for into our event. The dance floor was packed all night which is exactly what we wanted. Tony did an incredible job. Thank you Tony, for everything!”
Michelle & Edgar – July 22, 2006
“Tony Ho was wonderful! He found out a lot of information about my husband and I prior to the wedding, he answered all of my questions, always returned my calls and everything was perfect. I would highly recommend Sounds Abound. They make choosing a DJ easy and stress free!”
Anna & John – April 29, 2006
“To Tony Ho and the Staff at Sounds Abound. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job with our wedding. Every staff that we had contact with was very helpful and nice. Tony was an awesome DJ and was very friendly and outgoing. We couldn’t have asked for better!”
Chirstine & Joseph – September 17, 2005
“Everything was perfect. I had an afternoon event and crowd interaction, we thought, was going to be an issue – NOT AT ALL! Tony was wonderful and I haven’t stopped hearing how good of a DJ I had. To give even more thumbs up, my guests said that they hadn’t ever been to a wedding with a better DJ! Thanks!”
Jenny & Jeff – September 4, 2005
“We were very impressed with the attire Tony wore to our reception. He made excellent music selections to make every guest feel comfortable regardless of cultural differences. He was very confident, experienced, organized and on top of things. He willingly volunteered to entertain our guests with a “Dollar Game” when dinner was delayed. We greatly appreciated that, our guests did not notice the short delay. They were having too much fun. We all enjoyed ourselves. Thank you very much.”
Kris & Rich – May 14, 2005
“Tony’s Hot! Tony Rocks! Tony’s Cool! Tony did a fabulous job at my wedding. Our guests are still commenting on how great the music was and what a great job he did. I asked him to wing it and pick out “something fun – but not cheesy” and he hit the nail on the head! I felt very comfortable asking him for his professional poinion. He truly is a professional.”
Jill & Jason – February 19, 2005
“Once again, Tony Ho was amazing and EVERYONE was pleased with his music. This is the third wedding he’s done with my friends – pretty soon he’ll be a guest at the the weddings! My cousin, who is getting married in June, is now looking to book Tony. Thanks so much – great music, great service! He was set up with music playing when we walked in the door – I can’t tell you how much stress that relieves breides! Thanks Tony!”
Alyssa & Matthew -August 20, 2005
“We’re glad we picked Tony. He was an excellent emcee, professional, and everything we were looking for. We would recommend him to anyone. He fit well into our idea of what our wedding DJ should be.”
