Tony HoSounds Abound DJ and Master of Ceremonies
What Clients Say About Tony
Tony Ho & Sounds Abound are Simply the Best!
Our wedding would not have been the same without Tony as our DJ. He is without a doubt one of the best DJ’s in the business. On top of his mastery over music and vibe setting, he was an amazing host for each stage of our wedding. Not only did he take a lot of stress out of the music planning, he absolutely nailed the music for our wedding and helped keep a structure to the night.
Prior to the wedding, we had a detailed phone call with Tony where he prioritized understanding the music and vibes we wanted to set for the different parts of our wedding. On the night itself, Tony absolutely nailed everything we had asked for and effortlessly incorporated all the nuances of our different music tastes into the wedding itself. He perfectly executed the special songs we picked for our ceremony and first dances, and helped keep the right pace so we didn’t miss a thing. For cocktail hour and dinner, he set the mood and was spot on with the songs and artists we had discussed prior to the night. When it came to the reception, Tony was second to none. He had the dance floor packed and kept everyone dancing.
My husband and I have received nothing but compliments about how fantastic Tony was. He is truly one of the best at his craft and we could not have asked for more. Hire this man, you will not regret it!

There really, truly aren’t words to express how thankful we are for you and all of your hard work throughout our wedding planning process and on our wedding day. We know that this wedding wasn’t your easiest, and we know that we may have been some of your crazier clients. With that being said, you absolutely blew our expectations out of the water and helped make our dream come true. You were the most easy going and easy to work with. We genuinely can’t even describe how thankful we are to have had someone like you on our team, who helped make the party we were looking for happen. We had lots of people mentioning how much they “loved the DJ” and just wanted to share that with you. We had the absolute BEST vendor team and cannot thank you enough for everything that you have done. Thank you, thank you, thank you. If we could relive this day, we would do it all over again.

I live in NJ and was planning an event at the Lucca Osteria for my company. It was the first Awards Ceremony for an Intermodal Company, and I needed a more low-key presence. I was recommended to Tony Ho, Sounds Abound Entertainment, and we couldn’t be happier with the result. He was amazing, a true class act and professional. The music choice for the event was perfect, weaved in with some holiday cheer. Brilliant!
Working with Tony was pure ease. We received so many compliments on the event, and the music! It was just a wonderful backdrop to our event, added some excitement, fun and foot tapping to what could have been a stuffy event! Thank you, Tony!

The Greatest Showman Ever!!!
Tony Ho is the greatest showman ever. My friend recommended him and he's worth every penny. We were an impossible couple: our music tastes could not get farther apart. I wanted old school honky tonk, my husband wanted 2 Chainz. We picked ridiculous songs -- our first dance was the BeeGees. Somehow, this saint of a man made it work. We sent him our favorite spotify playlists. Every other song one of us was ecstatic about -- and somehow he made it sound great. I'm convinced he can work with anyone to do anything. He has a beautiful voice and great presentation. He kept us on time and went with the flow on our last minute changes. We were married in March and my husband talks about his man crush 7 months later. Thank you, Tony!

Tony Ho was our DJ and let me say he blew it out of the park!! He took, what people typically wouldn't consider wedding music (for those who aren't a fan of traditional wedding jams like I am) and made it fit in perfectly to our wedding day!! I never got a chance to really leave the dance floor because he was always playing "my jam" haha! Tony is super personable and even let some of my guest take photos behind the DJ booth. He was quick to answer emails and so accommodating! 100/100!! My guest loved the music and the vibes. Almost want another wedding just to book him again!
November 11, 2022
I could not have asked for a better DJ than Tony Ho at our wedding! Whenever I had a question or inquiry, he responded within hours and made my vision come true! He gave me full creative control with everything, and didn't hesitate to make it into a reality. I cannot recommend Sounds Abound and Tony Ho enough, they really were an incredible team to work with! Thank you sooooo much!!!!

Life of the PARTY!!
Tony Ho was the best DJ - he made sure he played all the songs we wanted and really kept the dance floor alive. All our guests had a blast, and I can only thank Sounds Abound for being the best! Nicole was super helpful at the photo booth and really made our guests feel comfortable! Multiple of our guests did it many times, it was an absolute hit!

Best DJ Around!!
I am writing this review as a guest/member of the bridal party from our friends wedding this past weekend who was so impressed with the experience we had with DJ Tony and Sounds Abound Entertainment! I too got married this past year and while I also loved the DJ we used and had no complaints with our experience, I truly felt the need to express to Tony and to everyone who will read this what an amazing guy he is. Not only was the dance floor packed the ENTIRE NIGHT, I also saw him interacting one on one with the guests, making jokes, keeping a smile on his face all night and most importantly, he helped kept the whole day move along seamlessly. Aside from being behind the DJ booth and keeping the crowd partying all night, I also wanted to highlight the fact that I saw he had taken some candid and fun pictures for the bride and groom all on his own that we were all able to enjoy the following day. Typically, the bride and groom and the bridal party are too busy to have their phones out to snap a few cool pictures or videos to look back on while we all wait for the highly anticipated professional photos and videos. So the fact that Tony took the time to come out in the venue and snap a few decoration/venue pictures and bridal party pictures/videos and share with us the next day was awesome. He truly went the extra mile and that is definitely something that needs to be recognized! I would recommend again and again Tony Ho for any event DJ needs! What an awesome guy and an awesome night celebrating our friends thanks to Tony!

Tony Ho is amazing and meant to do what he does! Our wedding was 11/5/22 and it was a PARTY!!! He was super approachable from the very beginning! He knows exactly how to party and keep the dance floor crowded! We will use him again for any event! No need to look elsewhere, Tony is the man to go to for your event needs! He listens to everything you say, feels the crowd, and goes from there! Best decision of our wedding: booking with Tony from Sounds Abound.

Book Tony Ho!
Book Tony Ho at Sounds Abound for the best wedding reception ever! My husband and I are pretty specific about what we like and don't like in music, but as soon as we met Tony, we knew it was a fit. He gladly played what we provided as well as added the perfect songs in to match our preferences and feel!! The cocktail hour music was a vibe, the speeches and important dances went seamlessly, and the dancefloor was going all night!! Professional, fun, and easy to work with - thanks Tony!
September 25, 2022
Tony Ho with Sounds Abound was our wedding DJ earlier this month and did an absolutely fantastic job! Tony was incredibly communicative leading up to our wedding and was very responsive to any questions we had. He kept everyone on the dance floor all night long and we received numerous compliments on his work. We would highly recommend Tony for any event!! Thank you, Tony!!!

Tony Ho is the best!!!!
Tony Ho is the best!!!! Everything was literally perfect, and we absolutely enjoyed working with Sounds Abound! We didn’t have to worry about a thing. We will tell everyone about our wonderful experience!!!
Tony made us feel so special especially with our last dance. We kicked everyone out to soak up the day, and we literally thought Tony left but he popped up after the song and we shared a laugh, and it was absolutely perfect!! 10/10!!
October 7, 2022
We had Tony Ho DJ our wedding and he was the best! He played a range of music, as we didn’t have super specific guidelines. Everyone has been talking about how amazing he was! He had such great communication with us before and during the wedding and he’s just generally a super nice and fun person - DJ-ing fits him perfectly! I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!

DJ TONY HO IS THE WAY TO GO!
There aren't enough words to explain how incredible it was to work with him! Before we signed our contract, Tony made himself available to connect with us over the phone. This gave us the opportunity to "interview" him and get to know his personality before making any commitments. Within 2 minutes of speaking with Tony, we knew immediately that he was the one! He was so lively and outgoing on the phone, and we had a gut feeling his energy would translate to the dancefloor (which it undoubtedly did!). Prior to our wedding day, we connected with Tony via a Zoom meeting, and it was so fun to chat with him virtually! During this meeting, Tony collected all the information he needed from us to make sure our wedding day went as smooth as possible (e.g., made sure he knew how to pronounce bridal party names, confirmed our timeline/order of events, and more!). During the days leading up to our wedding, I texted Tony A LOT. I bugged him with various last-minute questions and ideas which he always quickly and kindly responded to with the answers we needed - he never made me feel like a bother! On our actual wedding day, Tony CRUSHED IT. He gave us the dance party of our dreams!! There was never a dull moment or a lull in dancing. Tony was able to keep the energy high and the dance floor packed for the entire three and a half hours that we had our dance floor open! We couldn't have dreamed of a better wedding DJ and our feelings were affirmed when ALL of our wedding guests raved to us about Tony after the wedding! We cannot recommend Tony Ho enough! If you are looking for a DJ who is friendly, funny, and will keep the party going, Tony is 100% for you!

Tony Ho was absolutely amazing!!! We wanted everyone at our wedding to be dancing the night away, so picking a great DJ was our number one priority. Tony definitely delivered. We loved Tony so much that if he ever decided to go wild and pull all-nighters, we would hire him for a full 24 hours so that he could DJ the after party and next morning brunch as well. Before officially booking Tony, we interviewed several different DJs and Tony was the clear winner. He was personable and the perfect amount of hype while not taking the center of attention away from my husband and me. He also was one of the only DJs we interviewed who made us and our music taste feel heard as a couple. My husband and I's taste is a little all over the place and we also wanted to appeal to the older folks at our wedding as well. Tony listened and interpreted our style perfectly. Beyond that, many DJs have an online portal for planning purposes. Since we interviewed a lot of DJs, we saw a lot of different portals. Tony's was up-to date with the times, had song suggestions, and was very easy to use. For all of the special songs we requested, Tony did a great job at making sure the right people were on the dance floor. I loved that he had an assistant who was able to come and find me for special dances instead of summoning me over the speakers. We also had 3 different locations that we needed music for: the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Tony did a great job at setting up at all 3 locations on time and smoothly. Peace, Love, Tony

Don’t snooze on DJ Tony Ho! HE WAS THE BEST
My husband (boyfriend at the time) and I attended a friend’s wedding who had Tony Ho as their DJ and he absolutely crushed it that we knew if we were ever to get married, Tony would be our DJ. A few years later, it was our turn and the only DJ we “researched” (since we reached out to our friends), spoke to, and booked was Tony. The booking and coordination process leading up to the wedding day was so easy. He’s such a fun guy, laid back, so kind, and super professional. His style immediately vibed with ours. On the day of the wedding, he read the room so well and played all of our favorite songs. Literally no one left the dance floor. It was nice having a DJ who was creative with his own style but listened to us as his clients who didn’t want the typical overplayed wedding songs. Trust me when I say that he will cater to your needs, make the room and you as clients feel at ease, and ensure you have a good time at your event. Most of all, he let my husband karaoke to his favorite song at the end of the night and the entire guest list stuck around just for that encore! Hire Tony — having a DJ who knows how to run the show and set the tone of the event are imperative to having a memorable event and he exceeded those expectations. THANK YOU, TONY! We have a whole list of friends who still need to get married, so we’ll be recommending you to them, haha!

Sounds Abound, made our wedding night a total party!
Sounds Abound DJ'd our wedding this past September and I would 150% recommend them, specifically Tony Ho, to really get your party started! Tony took the time to get to know us and meet with us prior to our event, he kept in touch throughout the whole planning process, and answered the thousands of questions we had. He was so personable and fun, he made our night one to remember! He interacted with guests and had a VERY professional set-up. He is very talented and knows how to get a crowd up and dancing! The night was a blast, one I will never forget! Thanks to him and the whole Sounds Abound team, you are UNBEATABLE!! 12/10!!
September 17, 2022
Tony Ho did a fantastic job DJing our wedding! He had a great selection of songs and playlists for us to choose from. His online music portal lets you build a custom playlist and plan the music for the entire day. He did thorough sound checks, and all of the music and mics came through flawlessly. He's able to read the room, keep the dance floor lively, and transition well from song to song. All our guests commented on how great he was!
August 14, 2022
This should be your DJ company! We were lucky to have the owner Tony Ho turn up the party on our wedding night! He is one of the nicest guys, and fun to be around. He will play anything the couple wants to hear. We were so happy with hearing our favorite bands on our special day! Our friends and family were complimenting the music playlist and raving about how much fun they had hearing jam band and rock music all night! Tony also is amazing at last minute changes such as bridal party announcements, different order of speeches, etc. I also want to add, he has the perfect emcee voice!! He is super professional and amazing at what he does. We are so grateful we picked this company. We highly recommend hiring them for your wedding or next big event. Nicole the Entertainment Coordinator is also amazing at responding quickly and easy to get details from to stay organized and informed. This definitely helps if you are planning your wedding yourself with no planner like I did. THANK YOU, Sounds Abound!

Simply the Best!
Tony Ho is simply the best! From the initial phone call to the online planning tools to the final meeting and of course our wedding- Tony was so organized and made the DJ process so simple and easy. Tony really understood our music style and kept the party going all night! We loved having Sounds Abound at our wedding!! We also rented the photo booth, and our guests LOVED it!!! Tony even sent us every picture taken (digitally) for us to look through!
August 12, 2022
Tony Ho was made for this. I couldn’t imagine having anyone else on our special day. He has been approachable and easy to contact prior to the wedding day. We called him a few times and bounced our ideas off of him and he was easy going, gave us the time and made the phone call experience enjoyable. His personality no doubt is what makes him perfect for this job and to have on the wedding day. He was professional all the way through. I loved that he was able to to communicate with me on the wedding day to keep me in the loop such as checking in with the last dance song. He even allowed me to dj for a bit 😉 I would 100% recommended him to have for your event. My favorite part is that he takes to the time to read the audience and the bride and groom to get a feel for what they would appreciate and we don’t have to even say anything and he just took care of it for us. The groom and I ran out of time to provide a detailed list of music for our cocktail hour and dinner list but he filled in the rest for us and it was exactly what I would have planned.

Perfect Entertainment Team!
I found Sounds Abound through my venue's list of preferred vendors. They stood out to me because they provided both DJ services and a photo booth. They were prompt with communication, particularly through email, ever since I first inquired.
I picked Tony Ho as my DJ after reading many positive reviews about him. I can definitely say I made the right choice! I felt like I was in good hands throughout the wedding process (he was always telling me things would go seamlessly) but I honestly wasn't sure how all the songs would work with timing (i.e. timing of entrances, would the song line up with when we were trying to do something, etc). All of the music was PERFECT, it truly felt as though every song was meant for exactly what it was planned for. I have several friends who have gotten married recently and some of their biggest complaints were about their DJ playing songs they didn't want, even when they were told not to play them. Not only did Tony do an excellent job following our playlist but he also kept people dancing all night!
Tony and his assistant Doug, who helped at our photo booth, truly made everything relating to music and entertainment a breeze! Tony announced everything perfectly, from family and bridal party entrances to announcements about my late-night snack table! He made sure all the important events (bouquet toss, garter toss, sparkler exit) happened before my photographers and videographers had to depart. There was even a semi-last-minute change with our transportation for after the reception, and Tony made sure the last song and announcement for our shuttle happened before we had to depart. I would recommend Sounds Abound, Tony, and their team to everyone!

Simply the Best
Tony is the BEST DJ ever! We knew he was professional and great to work with from our first conversation. He put us right at ease with his knowledge and demeanor. ALL of the vendors that we worked with know Tony and adore him. I cannot speak highly enough of his services. He talked us through the process leading up to our wedding. On the day of the wedding, there was a change to the entrance music. A friend was supposed to play the guitar, but no longer could. Tony stepped right in and provided the perfect music without missing a beat. During dancing, he played all of the music we had asked for, he even rapped one of the songs himself! We also had a cultural piece to our celebration. We had an Indian drummer enter and play for a while. We put Tony in touch with the drummer, and they worked together to provide the perfect atmosphere to start the party. EVERYBODY was on the dance floor thanks to Tony. He is the BEST!
July 24, 2022
Choosing Sounds Abound to DJ our wedding is by far one of the best decisions we made! Tony was our DJ and he absolutely killed it! We told him what we wanted, but gave him a lot of freedom to play what he thought we would like after speaking with him about our musical taste. We were not disappointed! We got soooo many compliments from our guest about how this was the most they have ever danced at a wedding! I also wrote a song for my dad for the dad/daughter dance and Tony made sure it was ready to go and made sure it sounded amazing! Cannot recommend him and Sounds Abound enough!
June 24, 2022
Our favorite wedding vendor to work with!
Sounds Abound and Tony Ho were just what we needed on our special day! From the beginning, we knew we were in good hands. Communication was easy, all of our requests (even the crazy ones) were honored, and we were given many great suggestions along the way. Tony helped our wedding run smoothly with his seamless transitions and attention to detail. While we gave little input on music to be played at our reception, he came through by keeping all guests on the dance floor the entire night. Following our wedding day, we have received texts from our guests about how they haven’t danced that much in a long time and complimenting how awesome our DJ was. You can’t go wrong booking Sounds Abound!
July 22, 2022
Sounds Abound was recommended to us by our venue, The Haight, and we are so glad we chose them. From start to finish, it has been a breeze working with Sounds Abound... everything from our initial call and setup, using the Client Planner, selecting our DJ, the week of the wedding call, to the actual wedding day... it was all perfect and smooth sailing. We absolutely LOVED having Tony Ho as our DJ. He is so fun & bubbly, easy to work with and just makes you want to dance and have a great time! He helped us stick to our timeline, did a great job with all of the introductions and announcements and stuck to a lot of our requested songs/playlists! We are very grateful to Tony & Sounds Abound for such a wonderful experience and we 100% recommend them for your wedding!
June 15, 2022
Great, personable DJ!
Tony's sizzle reel video on his website is true to life - he's dynamic, professional, and very pleasant and easy to work with!

Sounds Abound, in particular Tony Ho, exceeded our expectations
We booked Sounds Abound (DJ: Tony Ho) for our wedding, and we couldn't be happier. Tony made the process incredibly easy for us. He used our requests and tastes in music to curtail the wedding playlist. The dancefloor was packed the entire night and he was able to keep people from ages 10-88 boogying all night long.
Importantly, Tony put many personal touches into the day. During speeches the father of the groom and best man mentioned songs and a particular movie reminding them of the couple. Tony had songs queued up tying to both themes. He also tactfully handled requests that were on the do not play list.
We also added the photobooth, which we greatly appreciated. The photos came in the classic printed version, via text, and we got a dropbox folder. This was a huge hit with the guests.
All in all, the experience of Sounds Abound was absolutely incredible. Five stars is not enough to rate how happy we were with Sounds Abound (and we promise they didn't pay us anything to say this)

Tony Ho and Sounds Abound will keep EVERYONE on the Dance Floor!
Tony Ho at Sounds Abound was one of the first vendors I had booked. I have been to 4 weddings (including my own!) where Tony Ho has been the DJ and every single time the weddings are the MOST fun. Tony Ho and Sounds Abound consistently keeps all of the guests, young and old on the dance floor all night long. I think it is safe to say our guests did not want the night to end when they started chanting "one more song!" twice! We even had a shuttle issue that pushed our timeline back and Tony was able to keep our guests entertained and happy while waiting. I could not imagine anyone else doing our wedding. If you want your wedding to be a blast, personable for you, and everyone on the dance floor then Tony Ho and Sounds Abound is for you!!
May 28, 2022
Tony was AWESOME to work with for our therapeutic day school's prom. He donated his time and went above and beyond with gathering a playlist from all students and coming early with all of his equipment. Such a fun time for students and staff included!
May 5, 2022
We used Sounds Abound for our wedding and it was by far the best decision we made vendor-wise! Tony Ho was our DJ and he was phenomenal! Sounds Abound was so reasonably priced and were top notch in making our wedding music exactly what we envisioned. Tony was better than ever and we would highly recommend him for ANY event - especially if you want that event to be a very fun dance party. Tony was so great at checking in with us and listened to all of our non-traditional ideas and helped them come to life - from R&B music during dinner to creating the perfect ceremony music for us, making a mashup for my father-daughter dance , and turning our reception into a club he was literally the best part of our wedding. All of our guests comments on how great the music was and how much fun they had dancing - this is all thanks to Tony Ho and Sounds Abound. I am not kidding when I say how grateful we are for Tony and Sounds Abound for making our wedding come to life in the best ways possible. HIGHLY RECOMMEND 1000/10!
May 21, 2022
WOW!!! Tony, you are amazing!! We loved having you as our DJ for our wedding. You are incredible and we feel so lucky to party the night away with you. Everyone was complimenting us on your music, style and overall vibe. This is why we went with you!! You are the best. From the emails, calls, texts, and the special touch after Kellie's speech with a special song from Pitch Perfect... you are AMAZING. You are so good at what you do. We are so thankful we saw you at Laura and Dan's wedding, it was a no brainer to go with you for our wedding. You knocked it out of the park!! We wish we could relive it all over again, it was THE BEST!! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for everything!!
May 20, 2022
You were such a great part of our day. We appreciate your thoughtfulness and ability to help us throw one heck of a party. You were awesome!
May 14, 2022
We had Tony come out and DJ for our After-Party at our 2022 Derby Party! It is our annual fundraiser and for the past three years we haven't been able to host our event due to COVID-19. So, as things continued to evolve at Hesed House we also knew that our Derby Party had to evolve with it. With that being said, we knew our after-party needed a huge glow up and DJ Tony was able to do just that! We were running on such a lack of time, and to know that he just went with it and kept the vibe going without us even being able to put in our own song requests (lack of time on our part), was so impressive! He was able to give us exactly what we wanted and understood we were busy and just wanted him to do what he did best! Needless to say, DJ Tony will be our go-to for years to come!
Sounds Abound was great from the very beginning to the very end. The client portal was easy to use, and they were quick to answer any questions we had. Now to DJ Tony and his assistant... they were BEYOND amazing. We had people come up to us all night saying how good the music was, and even 3 weeks later, we still have people talking about how awesome the DJs were. You will not be disappointed with Sounds Abound!
April 30, 2022
You need Sounds Abound for your wedding!! They make it a real party!!!
I can't say enough good things about Sounds Abound! I would recommend them to everyone for any event needing music! I'm so grateful for this company, they legit made my wedding night the most fun party ever. We were blessed to have Tony Ho as our DJ/MC. He read the room perfectly and played music accordingly, everyone was dancing until the venue closed. The dance floor was PACKED all night long because Tony knew exactly what to play! He was funny, kind, and creative with his ideas. He accommodated our unique requests (e.g., we had a flower "man" do a dance & Tony was more than happy to work with the song transitions!), and we also had many last minute changes that Tony took care of easy. He got all our names/titles right for our grand entrance and was always checking in to make sure things went right (for example, our wedding song has multiple versions & he double checked which one I wanted which I appreciated so much). I can't say enough good things! I would recommend Sounds Abound to everyone in the area! I will post photos of the cool uplighting too once our professional photos come in (I recommend the uplighting wholeheartedly! It made the room pop!). Also the online portal is easy to navigate and makes planning all the songs/order of events much easier!
I highly recommend booking with Sounds Abound; you'll be happy you did!
April 9, 2022
My husband and I got married at the beginning of April, and our guests are STILL talking about how amazing our DJ was! We had Tony Ho as our DJ, and he got almost every single guest out there on the dance floor. He was super friendly, and great to work with!
April 2, 2022
We hired sounds abound for our wedding. Tony Ho was our DJ. He was absolutely fantastic and kept the dance floor going all night. They provided a perfect experience and customized everything for us. The photo booth was a big hit and having them send us digital copies of every photo was awesome.
March 21, 2022
We cannot express how truly wonderful Tony Ho was as the DJ for our wedding!! He was spot on with the music, organizing things with us and our officiant, he’s a great communicator, but most important he has a FANTASTIC personality. It is almost like he was born to be a DJ! The entire interaction from start to finish could not have been more friendly or professional. We can attest that a DJ can make or break your wedding and if you’re looking for a great person to interact with you should use Tony Ho!!!
February 26, 2022
TONY HO!!! SIMPLY THE BEST. MY WEDDING WAS PERFECT. I BELIEVE HAVING THE MUSIC IS SO IMPORTANT - TONY DID AN AMAZING JOB FROM MY CEREMONY TO THE RECEPTION. I AM STILL SORE FROM ALL THE DANCING. I APPRECIATE HIS -PROMPTNESS, KINDNESS, ABILITY TO GATHER EVERYONE TOGETHER AND AMAZING ENERGY. I WILL BE LETTING BRIDES TO BE KNOW ABOUT HIM - HE MADE THE WEDDING SOMETHING ILL NEVER FORGET! THANK YOU!!

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G DJ Services
Tony Ho was incredibly easy to work with and very professional. He made the music selection process effortless. Tony did an excellent job on reading our guests and keeping the dance floor full while keeping to our preferred music style and selections. Our guests had a blast dancing and nothing but great things to say thanks to our AMAZING DJ Tony Ho!
February 14, 2022
Tony Ho was the best DJ we could have asked for! We were in contact before our wedding in January and he really got to know Anthony and I! He played the best music, and the dance floor was packed all night! Would highly recommend Tony and Sounds Abound!
January 8, 2022
Tony Ho is THE MAN
I can’t thank Sounds Abound enough for the spectacular and truly outstanding DJ and photo booth services they provided at our wedding. Tony Ho is the absolute MAN playing all the jammie jams the entire night and even RAPPING to some 90’s hip hop/R&B….needless to say the crowd went nuts for it! Tony made our day so special from an epic playlist throughout cocktail hour to pumping up the beat during open dancing - my calves were sore for at least two days following from not leaving that dance floor. Thank you Tony for a night Jason and I will never forget! If you don’t have Tony Ho as your DJ, you’re really missing out.
January 22, 2022
Best DJ Ever
Tony Ho was our DJ for our wedding. We have nothing but good things to say about him! We chose him because he was the DJ for my brothers wedding 2 years ago and his wedding was so much fun. He knows exactly what music to play to make a wedding fun. We didn't want the typical music that is played at every wedding. We wanted our wedding to feel like one big party and that is what he gave us. People danced the entire night. The planning process was also so easy. We were able to fill everything out online for what songs we wanted. I've been to many weddings in the past few years and I can honestly say out of all the djs we have heard at other weddings he is definitely my favorite and I would recommend him to everyone!
January 15, 2022
An Absolutely Amazing Time!
Tony Ho with Sounds Abound was absolutely amazing! After having to postpone our reception twice with the pandemic, Tony and the team were able to accommodate us and answer all of our questions. At our reception Tony blew all of our expectations out of the water! I had so many people come up to me to complement our DJ choice and ask how we found him (thanks to the Knot). Tony made sure to check in with us throughout the night and helped us stay on track throughout with introductions and announcements. We had an absolute BLAST as well as everyone that attended. We also rented the photo/social booth which I will tell everyone is SO WORTH IT! It was so fun getting all of the photos/gifs after to see everyone having fun. We also had people who couldn't attend check the link and see the party unfold which was a nice idea. Sounds Abound and Tony Ho specifically deserve all the stars. Thank you for such a wonderful night to celebrate.

Tony Ho is the best!
Sounds Abound was amazing on our wedding day! Tony Ho was our DJ and we couldn’t be happier with our choice!! Communication was simple, and he helped to plan and organize all the major points of the day with us ahead of time. He was totally amazing with taking the lead of the crowd in playing songs and was super detail oriented in playing music that we didn’t necessarily mention but LOVE (for example music/songs were referenced in speeches and instantly that music was played during dinner! It was such a great surprise). Tony was a fun guy with a great personality that kept the party going. We didn’t want it to end! Thanks Tony!!

Tony Ho is the man, the most incredible DJ we have ever worked with or experienced at an event. We were referred to Sounds Abound by a friend and could not be happier that we crossed paths with Tony. Our 11/27/21 wedding was an absolute blast thanks to him. We still have guests telling us they’ve never danced so much, had so much fun, and have seen a dance floor packed literally all night at a wedding. Beyond giving us the party of a lifetime, he was incredible to work with leading up until the date - so calm, cool, and collected which was a breath of fresh air in the midst of heavy planning. Highly, highly recommend Tony for any event you’re planning!

Tony Ho was fantastic! We didn’t originally know about Sounds Abound or Tony Ho, however through some unfortunate circumstances, we had to hire a new DJ. Once we saw the amazing reviews on both Sounds Abound and Tony, we knew we had to choose them. Tony was fantastic. We talked to him ahead of the date to give him an idea of what we were looking for. He hit the nail on the head. The dance floor was filled all night, and loads of people mentioned our amazing DJ

Our DJ was Tony Ho! He was fantastic. We had several compliments on how great he was following the event. We were apprehensive since it was only a wedding of 30 people, but it worked out great. We had a few different music files that were created for the event and he kept track of them and helped time the event perfectly. It was such a fun event and many people stayed on the dance floor the whole night! Thanks Tony!

We couldn’t be more impressed with Sounds Abound Entertainment. From the moment we were considering using Sounds Abound Entertainment, we were impressed with the communication and ease of the process. They answered all questions for us, made themselves available by phone, email, or text message, and even set aside time for us to ask any questions, get familiar with their online user platform. We got lucky and were able to book Tony Ho for our wedding. He was INCREDIBLE! Again, he was quick to respond to any questions we had and listened to what we had envisioned for our wedding. He provided great suggestions for us, sent us drafts/a final proof of the photobooth pictures, and he was a great communicator. On the day of our wedding, he was there to set everything up even before we even arrived so he could talk to the venue about final details and make sure everything was perfect for us. We had a few special requests for him-- we had a friend singing our first song and a few special shoutouts we wanted to make sure happened at our wedding. He made everything happen and more. He was truly the BEST DJ- went with the flow but also kept everything moving according to plan. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience, and we look forward to recommending Tony to all of our family and friends. Thank you so much for everything, Tony!

Best Wedding DJ Ever!
DJ Tony Ho came to us very highly recommended, and he did not disappoint. We had a smaller guest list than the average wedding and he kept people on the dance floor all the way until the last song. He was an incredible host for the night and my daughter (the bride) and groom had the time of their lives. I will absolutely hire Tony again for any events I plan and recommend him to anyone looking for a fun and experienced DJ!
November 19, 2021
Tony Ho was the best DJ we could have ever asked for! Communication was absolutely stellar, and he made sure everything went smoothly. From discussing our exact music tastes to going over correct pronunciation of everyone's names to ensuring the timeline for the night was followed, it made everything so much easier and less stressful during both our ceremony and reception. Sounds Abound was probably our best vendor of the entire night. Please hire them, you won't regret it!
August 7, 2021
Great DJ! Tony Ho was amazing he had people on the dance floor all night! Great company that gives you a great database of songs to choose from! A lot of guest said that this is the best DJ they have seen!!

Tony was our DJ from Sounds Abound for my 30th Birthday. He was exceptional and extremely kind. My husband and I had a 1920’s themed party, and he was extremely helpful in creating the music to make the party a success. He helped create a playlist that ensured everyone was dancing all night long. We are extremely grateful for his insight, professionalism, and expertise. He knew how to ensure everyone had a fabulous time. All of my friends and family are still raving about the party. Thank you to Tony and Sounds Abound for helping make this the best 30th Birthday Party!

Tony Ho of Sounds Abound is Hands Down The Best in the Midwest
My now husband Dan and I were referred to Tony by a friend who used to work for Sounds Abound. We absolutely could not be happier - working with Tony was a dream. He’s so kind and has great energy, had a call with us to understand our vision. As serious music lovers, we were really particular about what was played, and he was willing to accommodate all of our requests. Everyone at the wedding loved him and gave so many compliments on the music, and the wedding itself was a blast. We danced all night, there wasn’t a single point where the dance floor was empty. Thank you so much for everything, Tony Ho!

You want this guy on your team...
Hi Wedding Wire Community! My husband & I used Tony Ho from Sounds Abound for our wedding and we could not have been happier. I came to Tony with a request prior to the wedding to play a video during our ceremony. Tony not only reassured me he would make it happen, but he also did not charge us for using his projector! You want this guy for your big day.
September 26, 2021
Go with Tony Ho!
Tony Ho was the DJ for our big day and he was absolutely fantastic. I can't say enough about comfortable, easy, and fun he made everything. Our prep meeting was wonderful and he eased any nerves we had. The dance floor stayed active all night and he was a tremendous MC. We received several compliments from guests about his energy and sense of humor. Thank you Tony!
August 28, 2021
Oh Y Not!
We had an amazing experience from start to finish with Sounds Abound! We knew of them from other weddings we had attended and they certainly did not disappoint for our own wedding! Tony Ho is a fantastic DJ, he kept the dance floor hopping all night and made sure everything moved on time. He also did an amazing job for our outdoor ceremony. We even got the honor of a Tony Ho rap towards the end of the evening! Our guests were raving about how great of a DJ we had in Tony Ho! Additionally, our guests LOVED the photo booth (social booth) and had so much fun taking photos, gifs, and boomerangs! This evening will never be forgotten for us and we highly recommend Tony Ho/Sounds Abound to anyone looking to have the most memorable wedding or event ever!
October 1, 2021
We had the best reception ever because of Sounds Abound!! We used Tony Ho for our wedding and he was AMAZING! We told Tony we wanted a party, and he went above and beyond to give it to us! Our guests and family are still talking about how amazing Tony is! We highly recommend him to anyone who wants the wedding everyone will remember! Not to mention we share the same favorite song— September! Thank you again!!!
July 24, 2021
Had the best dance floor ever. The music was perfect and the portal they have you use makes to so easy to organize all your songs. Tony Ho was the mvp of the wedding and would recommend him 10 times over

One Less Thing to Worry About
Our wedding as we had imagined got kiboshed by COVID. Our party got pushed back a year from August 2020 to August 2021. By that time, we had already had a small ceremony and a kid! We still had the venue and DJ picked out, so we decided to make the best of prior arrangements to do a Sunday afternoon reception.
I gave Tony Ho an outline of ideas I had, and just let him go to work. He was able to adapt and host perfectly. It was something I didn't have to worry about and brought a lot of energy to the party. Definitely a worthwhile option if you are looking for an MC that can handle anything from quiet moments to rowdy raves.
We had Tony Ho as our wedding DJ and he CRUSHED it. We had to switch our DJ at the last minute due to COVID and our previous DJ going out of business. He stepped up with such short notice and could not have done a better job. I mean everyone was out on the dance floor for 4 hours straight and we had multiple people tell us that it was the best music they’ve heard at a wedding. He really knows how to read the room and tailor the songs to keep people on the dance floor. He was also great at the intros, getting everyone pumped up and clapping. I will be recommending him to all of my friends who get married because music can make or break a wedding, and he will turn your wedding into a dance party. Thank you so much, Tony!
July 9, 2021
Tony Ho helped make our big day even better! He was very nice and easy to communicate with. A couple of days before the wedding I started to get more and more nervous about how everything was going to run because of course every bride wants it to be perfect. I was sending multiple emails to Tony Ho to be sure everything was going to go as planned and he was so quick to respond with emails or a phone call. His confidence really helped me relax a bit in the days leading up to the wedding. He was very professional, easy going, and flexible. If we needed an announcement, he was quick to act. If we requested a certain song that wasn’t on our playlist, he found it and played it. He kept everyone on the dance floor and was a great overall entertainer from the beginning with the introductions to the closing song. He was so much fun and we could not have asked for a better DJ to take over a huge part of our big day! Everyone had a blast and we honestly can’t think of a single thing that went wrong and we think it’s partly because we had an awesome DJ!
August 13, 2021
Book Tony NOW!
We had the pleasure of working with Tony Ho a few weekends ago for our ceremony and reception. Tony was extremely proactive and took the time to talk through all the details of the day in advance with us. We were so thrilled with how organized and professional he was. We received so many compliments from guests that we had the best music selection/variety and dance floor. Tony really knows how to assess the energy in the room and ensures that all will have a great time. Do yourself a favor and book Tony for your wedding! We can't recommend him enough!
August 14, 2021
With all of the rescheduling and shifts in our wedding plans due to Covid, Tony was incredible at accommodating all the changes. Tony did an amazing job reading the crowd and adjusting music styles accordingly. He was very communicative and helpful throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Tony!
June 26, 2021
Tony Ho did a great job! He had to step in at the last second as our first dj ended up being sick. We had some pretty tough names in the wedding party and not one was missed pronounced and Tony only had a couple days to learn them! Thank you again sounds abound for have such great people working for you.
August 1, 2021
OH Y NOT
Dj Tony Ho is phenomenal. He was so easy to work with. He took our playlist and ran with it. We received so many compliments from guests of all ages that really enjoyed the music. Tony was so accessible, he really made sure to get all the details down perfectly. He played a really good mix of music and he incorporated a lot of songs from both our Italian and Mexican cultures. Tony killed it. We had such a great time at our reception. Thanks Tony!!!!
July 31, 2021
Perfect for our wedding!
Tony Ho at Sounds Abound was the perfect fit for our wedding needs. He was easy to connect with and understood our vision and venue. Tony was accommodating and made sure everything went perfect. We had so much fun and are thankful for his services.
August 2, 2021
Tony Ho is everything you would want and need in a DJ! During our first meeting, he made us feel extremely comfortable, showing a deep interest in the beginnings of our relationship and the journey leading up to our special day. He was very professional, friendly, and helped make our vision (regardless of any special idea we had that veered from the norm) come to life. His services provided the soundtrack to our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Sounds Abound's online planner was a fantastic offering that helped to ease our Type A personalities and Tony Ho put in every effort to seek out any songs not found in the music library, as well as come to our event prepared with our music taste in mind. He brought a one-of-a-kind energy, actively reading the room and responding to the energy of our guests, and highlighted the important moments through his talents. Tony did a wonderful job keeping us on our pre-discussed timeline and was flexible if anything needed to be adjusted on the fly. He was also collaborative with our other vendors to ensure that our celebration was nothing but perfection. Lastly, Sounds Abound was great to work with in the midst of the pandemic and multiple date changes we faced. We would highly recommend Tony Ho to be your DJ for your special event and would encourage you to highly consider the colored uplighting and Social Booth photobooth add-ons. Our guests were raving about the beauty and extra layer of fun these both brought to the party! You will not regret working with Tony Ho and Sounds Abound!
July 23, 2021
Finding a DJ was one of the most important things on our list for our wedding. We wanted to work with a company and DJ who would be fun and open to our ideas and help us create the perfect night. We absolutely got that and so much more with Sounds Abound and the best DJ on earth Tony Ho. Our wedding was moved a couple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the whole sounds abound team made all the transitions as easy as possible and were 100% supportive. I was able to text, call, or email with Tony Ho at any point to ask questions or throw out new ideas. He made the night so much fun and memorable and I’m still getting compliments on him and his work. I highly recommend Sounds Abound to anyone who needs a DJ for any event!
We loved working with Sounds Abound during our wedding! They were professional and easy to reach out to with any questions. We absolutely loved working with Tony Ho and he kept everyone on the dance floor during the entire reception! We received so many compliments from our guests on the music selection and we would highly recommend Tony for any type of event!!
May 22, 2021
Working with Sounds Abound was an amazing experience from start to finish! Part of our wedding planning process was during the start of the pandemic, and they were so flexible and communicative. Our wedding DJ was Tony Ho, and we cannot recommend him enough, he was amazing! He was very communicative prior to the wedding around our preferences and the plan for the big day. And all of our guests were raving about the music! He played a great variety and kept everyone on the dance floor. Also, our venue had a bit of a technical issue during the reception and Tony was so flexible and worked with the venue to problem solve. A phenomenal experience with Tony & Sounds Abound!!
May 15, 2021
Our DJ , Tony Ho was so amazing, very knowledgeable on what he's doing, very professional and the best!!! Party program was done so smooth and he paid attention to the concerns and requests that we had in mind. Every one was happy.. It's all about praises, compliments and wonderful things to say on how he carried out the debut party. We would like to say thank you so much for the great job and we must say,,,we would always keep you in our minds ( Sounds Abound )for our future family parties and milestones.

We used Sounds Abound for our Wedding Reception this Past Friday 7-16-21. We had Tony Ho and he was AMAZING! Our wedding was moved a couple times due to covid and Tony Ho and the sounds abound team made it as stress free as possible. We had so much fun on our reception night and are still getting texts asking who our DJ was. Sounds Abound and Tony Ho will be my DJ recommendation for anyone by far.
Soundsabound was AMAZING!
Tony Ho is a must have for your reception! He kept our entire wedding on the dance floor the whole night! He was amazing to work with, very responsive, and helpful when picking songs. He did an amazing job!
Best DJ! Do not even think twice!
Tony Ho was our DJ for our wedding ceremony and reception and he was seriously amazing! He came early to set up and had music playing while the bridal party got ready. Throughout the night, he played the music we listed and read the floor perfectly! If Tony is available, don’t wait! Outside of our DJ, the company was very good with communication and their site is easy to navigate and input your songs! Price is very competitive, as well! Bonus…our Best Man made a joke about a song in his speech and Tony was on it and played it immediately following the speech. It was hilarious!
June 11, 2021
Sounds abound was very easy to work with. We had Tony Ho and he did a wonderful job getting the dance floor busy and getting the guests excited. He was organized and even did the sound set up at the ceremony for us.
July 2, 2021
Tony Ho is a must have for your wedding! He is so personable, full of energy and knows how to ignite the party! The dance floor was packed the entire night. Sounds Abound was wonderful and their online system to capture your desires is user friendly. The Social Booth is worth every penny too! It was so much fun to look at the online gallery the morning after our big day! Don’t skip on the Social Booth!
July 1, 2021
Tony Ho was our DJ from Sounds Abound, and he was so great to work with! Tony really understood our style of music, and did a great job meeting all of our requests. Tony made sure that our wedding followed the timeline and stayed on track. Tony was kind, professional, and kept the dance floor going the whole night!
June 6, 2021
Look No Further Than Sounds Abound!
We are so happy that we chose Sounds Abound as our wedding DJ this past June! We booked with TonyHo (he's a rockstar..just look at the online reviews) in 2019 for our original 2020 wedding date which ultimately was postponed until 2021. Throughout the process the entire team was responsive and super thorough in answering any of our questions/rescheduling requests- THANK YOU for taking some of the stress off of our plate!
When our big day finally came around, we were thrilled with Tony and his team! They even wore ties that matched our wedding party! Tony totally got the crowd excited and energized for the festivities and the dance floor was packed, even on a Thursday!
Thank you for being a part of our special day!
June 3, 2021
Tony Ho from Sounds About was great and easy to work with. We inputted all our information into their easy-to-use online system: names of attendants, music we wanted and didn't want, etc. Then we had a call with Tony a few weeks before the big day to make sure he could accommodate our requests and pronounce names, etc. The day-of, Tony was a fantastic MC and really got the crowd excited despite it being a smaller wedding (57 people). Had the best time dancing and loved every moment. He ran everything smoothly and how we wanted. Absolutely recommend.
May 21, 2021
Sounds Abound, specifically Tony Ho, has done 3 weddings in my family and all of them have been spectacular. Best parts of the night were the dancing at all of them. Sounds Abound provided ceremony, cocktail hour and reception music, making sure the evening flowed from start to finish. Will use them for every DJ’d event ever.
June 5, 2021
Made Senior Prom Epic
We all were so impressed with Tony’s attention to detail before and during our parent hosted Prom. Lightning and music anyone can do but the spin Tony puts on his creations is Top Notch. The entire time he was interacting with the kids, had a full dance floor the entire night. Literally the kids left at 11pm the time it was over not before, and I feel that had everything to do with the style and environment Tony and Nicole made for this special event. I realize they have kids our kids ages, but it was more than that. They are truly masters in their craft. Best night ever, this kids kept saying. Thanks so much for being the best at what you do!

Tony Ho Best Man For the Job
Tony was legit the BEST DJ. He was very communicative through the entire process, especially with COVID regulations he worked with my husband and I and he truly cared that we had a perfect day. He was very accommodating to our guests as well. If you need a guy to set the party right, Tony is your guy! Tony was professional and kind. He even posted out even on his Instagram! Made the experience very personal!
May 1, 2021
Sounds Abound is a must for your wedding!
Jennifer and I were unlucky in our wedding timing as we had to reschedule our date 3 times due to Covid. Fortunately we had the best crew at Sounds Abound every step of the way. They worked with us for every change and were so supportive and understanding. Tony Ho is an absolute Rockstar! He should be at the top of your list for any wedding or event. He was an absolute professional and had an infectious positive spirit. He kept the party going the whole time and was the best DJ we have seen at any wedding. Please go with Tony Ho and the Sounds Abound crew. You will not be disappointed.

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!
October 3, 2020
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.
October 10, 2020
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!
September 6, 2020
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.
August 22, 2020
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.
March 14, 2020
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

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! 🙂

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.

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!

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.

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!

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” 🙂

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!

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!!

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.
July 6, 2018
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!
June 23, 2018
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.
April 28, 2018
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.

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!

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!

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!
January 23, 2016
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.
May 16, 2015
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.
December 19, 2014
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.
August 9, 2014
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!
October 4, 2014
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!!
September 13, 2014
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)!
May 9, 29014
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!
June 14, 2014
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 🙂
June 21, 2014
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.

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." 🙂

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!

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!!

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.

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!!

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
“Great Job! Know how to keep the guests on the dance floor!! Keep up the good work!!”
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
“Tony kept the evening going all night! Many of my guests stayed a long time to dance!”
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
“I got more compliments from people that it was the best music they heard at a wedding ever! Everyone loved the music and they loved Tony!”
Lauren & Dan – Cheryl (MOB) – May 25, 2012
“Tony was W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L!!! He had the party on their feet from start to finish – really understood his audience.”
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.”
Cindy – Renewal By Andersen Holiday Party – January 14, 2012
“Tony did a fantastic job!! He did a great job engaging a difficult group!”
Nikki & Mike – November 12, 2011
“Tony was great.. he worked real hard during the wedding to ensure that all went smoothly.”
Nikki & Mike – November 11, 2011
“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.”
Sherry & Steven – April 25, 2009
“Tony, Thank you so much for DJing at our wedding. We had a fantastic time. We were so pleased in the fact of giving control to you, working the crowd the way that the guests enjoyed the most. 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
“Thank you for everything, Tony. You made our wedding a memorable experience. Our guests had a great time dancing away the night. You did an awesome job!”
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
“Everything was perfect! Tony was personable and had an uncanny ability to play the perfect song:) Thank you so much!”
Ashley & Phillip – June 21, 2008
“We are extremely pleased with the results from Sounds Abound. Tony Ho was absolutely awesome. Just the type of personality we were looking for in a DJ. Very outgoing, personable, fun, lively. Definitely worth the money 🙂 We will highly recommend him in the future.”
Melissa & Brian – June 20, 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.”

“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!”

“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!”

“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!”

“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!”
