Review on The Knot

Ben from Island Sound was the DJ at our daughter’s wedding this month. He did an absolutely fantastic job! Prior to the wedding, Ben worked with the bride and groom rather extensively to identify the music they preferred. Ben showed up to the rehearsal with his equipment, set it up and was able to play the entrance and exit songs for us to practice the ceremony. It was very helpful that he was there to coordinate with the officiant. She remarked that, in her experience, that was unusual, and very helpful to her. Ben was punctual on the wedding day and did an absolutely wonderful job as a DJ. Our guests really enjoyed the selection of music he provided for dancing. He also moved the microphone and amplifier to the barn where our dinner took place so it could be used for toasts. I also saw Ben helping carry chairs from the ceremony pavilion to the barn without being asked. He went above and beyond to make our wedding memorable! I highly recommend Ben of Island Sound as a DJ for any type of event. Thank you, Ben!

5 stars DOES NOT do Island Sound justice. After my first initial interactions with their office staff, I knew they would be our DJ for our beach wedding. Getting a quote was so easy and hassle free…I felt at ease. Getting closer towards the wedding day, Ben, our DJ reached out to us, asked a few questions to clarify our questionnaire answers. He was able to play on Driftwood Beach for our wedding, and did a FANTASTIC job at our reception. There wasn’t a dull moment on the dance floor. Thank you, Ben and Island Sound for making our night extra special and stress free!

Ben, our DJ, was awesome. He kept it fun and entertaining. He was even able to download a special song for me onsite. I would highly recommend Island Sound.
