Here’s a simple tip to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding reception—go with Sounds Abound.
Rufus presided over our wedding reception on May 24, 2015, along with his assistant Casey. Before the wedding, we filled out an easy-to-use online portal to request specific songs and callouts. A couple weeks before the big day, Rufus kindly met with us to walk through the entire day. Prior to this Rufus was available via e-mail/phone for any questions we had. He was the only vendor we could contact whenever we wanted and he was happy to help. Rufus also called again before the wedding to go over everything we had filled out in the portal. We spoke on the phone for almost an hour and I could tell he wanted to make sure the night went perfectly, he is a true professional who is passionate about his work. He was sure to make sure he had pronunciations correct for all of our attendants.
We were a little worried about having a DJ for our ceremony since we had never been to a wedding with a ceremony done by a DJ. Rufus made our ceremony PERFECT!!!!! Everything flowed flawlessly.
From our reception introduction to our last dance, Rufus led the reception with unbelievable charisma and energy. The event was organized perfectly, and Rufus handled off-schedule things like surprise toasts with such grace. His song list was so on point, the dance floor was packed full of guests the entire night. Casey was super friendly and integral to the night as well, even asking us if there were any songs we’d like to hear in the last hour. Our dance floor was packed the entire night!!!
We also rented a photo booth from Sounds Abound, which was a huge hit. When we looked at the photo strips the next day, we laughed hysterically as we saw our guests look their best with gigantic hat and glasses props. The photo booth attendant was super friendly and since we were busy all night when he saw us both (my husband and I) together near the booth he made sure to call us in- SOOO glad he did that or we wouldn’t have had a photobooth pic of both of us!
I give Rufus, Casey, and the rest of the staff at Sounds Abound the highest of recommendations. Their experience, professionalism, and talent made hosting a wedding reception look easy. This should be a no-brainer for couples looking for a wedding DJ. Pick Sounds Abound…. and if he is available choose Rufus!
