Introduction: Soundsations has been providing DJ service to Iowa events for over 20 years! Everything is included in one affordable price; there are no extra fees or charges (such as set-up or travel). The price includes our computerized/digital lighting system, special effects for the bride/groom dance, introductions and announcements during the reception, and use of a wireless microphone. A DJ shouldn't have to do goofy games or gimmicks to get the guests involved at a reception. Those things can make the bride and groom, as well as the guests, feel awkward and uncomfortable. The music should be front-and-center and provide the entertainment on its own. The music is the star of the reception. The DJ is there to manage the star (music) and make sure it stays on track through proper selection and implementation.

Craig was the DJ at our wedding this past weekend. He could not have done a better job. He played the music the guests wanted to hear! He made sure we got all toasts and special dances done, and kept us on track throughout the evening! My guests danced the night away and it was a day we will never forget!!! I would definitely recommend Soundsations to any couple planning a wedding!!

Craig did a great job at our winter formal last Saturday. He was prompt, professional, and the kids had a great night of dancing!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Most people will ask for a quote for a certain number of hours. Soundsations has a base price of four hours of playing time. That way, if your reception ends early (there are sometimes other factors such as weather, etc), you aren't locked into the entire price. Also, it makes your DJ work for the money. If they want to be paid for additional hours, they will make sure to keep the crowd engaged.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started out working as a DJ and producer for KGGO and X103 (now Lazer) in Des Moines, KKRQ FM101 in Iowa City, and then briefly as Program Director at KISS FM in Ottumwa. During my last two years while working in radio I decided to branch out into doing side work at receptions and events and I loved it!

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Hire a DJ you feel comfortable talking to or communicating with. If the rapport isn't there, you may not feel comfortable with them during the reception.
