Q+A WITH SOUNDS FUN DJS
WHAT IS A SOUNDS FUN WEDDING?
Creating the best night of your life involves countless steps and transitions. Sounds Fun DJs specializes in managing each phase of the event as if it were that perfect concert or play – smooth, entertaining, and always more exciting than the moment before.
Our expertise in wedding planning gives your event the timing and flow to which we apply your personalized soundtrack. Choosing when and how to introduce each element of the event is just as important as the beats you apply to it. When done correctly, you’ve got mood magic.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
Weddings aren’t like most parties because there is a much wider variety of attendees. You’ve got every age group, different social and economic backgrounds and often completely different cultures. Any DJ can rock it out to the couple’s favorite songs but it’s an art form to know how to use music to pull together completely different guests in the group, little by little, until every guest is loving the couple’s best jams. We get a real high from this and look forward to it at every event.
WHAT IS THE HIGHEST COMPLIMENT A COUPLE CAN GIVE YOU?
Not wanting the night to end.
DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE.
We have access to DJs with a variety of personal styles, but our standard of professionalism is very high across the board. It’s critical that every Sounds Fun DJ be kind, empathetic, and excited about their work. After that, we match to the client’s needs.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE IN COMMON WITH YOUR CLIENTS?
We get pretty excited about bringing people together. We match perfectly with clients who understand that the happier and more excited their guests are, the more magical their experience will be.
WHAT TOOL CAN YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT?
Where to begin???
WHY WOULD SOMEONE BOOK YOU OVER ANOTHER DJ?
Booking a DJ can be tough for clients because it’s an industry full of independent operators, which makes it difficult for the client to understand certain things. The client won’t understand the quality of the equipment and if the sound will be clear and loud enough. They won’t know if the music is legally obtained, which risks the quality of the sound (iTunes downloads won’t necessarily sound good on a system as powerful as a DJs). It’s difficult for a client to know if a DJ has backup equipment or what happens if he is sick on the wedding day? And of course there is the age-old problem of “cheese” factor. That’s why it makes a difference to use a professional company with 20+ years of reviews and experience. With backups of everything, including DJs and a range of styles to match the client.
WHY SHOULD A COUPLE MARRY IN THE DEEP CREEK AREA?
Deep Creek is known for making visitors feel like family. Our laid back vibe and stunning vistas make the trip from DC, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh feel like a true destination wedding without the big travel hassles.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PRICING?
We have multiple packages that can be customized to a client’s needs. In general, we won’t be the cheapest in town, since that will be an independent operator who does this occasionally on the side. But for the quality and dependability of our services, we are still less expensive than you would pay in a city.
WHO IS YOUR BUSINESS’S STYLE ICON?
We have always admired Remixologists out of NYC and eliteDJs out of Denver. They both seem to value professionalism and experience in the same way that we do.
IF YOUR BUSINESS WAS A BEVERAGE, WHICH ONE WOULD IT BE?
We’ll just let Jamie Foxx answer that one for us.
