I began my DJ career in 1991 working for a few friends in the business. My friends began getting numerous requests for me to DJ events, so I decided to open my own part-time business in 1998. When you hire Sound Waves Entertainment, you are hiring a very professional DJ service (I pride myself on professionalism). I have begun moving my business to a full-time status, which means there are more top-notch DJs working for Sound Waves Entertainment. The DJs that work for Sound Waves Entertainment have a combined experience of more than 50 years and know how to make your event memorable!

I am proud to announce that Sound Waves Entertainment has ranked in the top DJ’s for Stark and Summit Counties through the Akron Beacon Journal’s Best for the last 4 years in a row.

I am a former lead singer of a 50’s band called “The Class of 57″ and a current lead singer for “The Legends Band”; so if you are looking for a “wedding singer,” give me a call and I can help you with that as well!

If you are looking for a minister to officiate your special wedding day, give me a call.  I recently became an ordained minister, licensed to officiate the vows of marriage within the State of Ohio.


About two weeks or so prior to the event, your assigned DJ will go over all of the details in person, via e-mail or phone. We like to go over everything to make sure there are no surprises, but we all know and expect there will be some changes the day of the event. We have yet to see a wedding or party go exactly as planned, but don’t worry about that, because we are very adaptable. On the day of the event, a DJ will come in professional attire for the evening. There may be a helper with the DJ that will assist throughout the event.  As a side note, DJs with Sound Waves Entertainment are not permitted to consume alcohol at any event. If I DJ your wedding or event, I will normally sing one or two songs during the dinner hour unless requested otherwise.

On the day of your event, your DJ will arrive at your event early to set up and make sure there are no unforseen problems…remember if you are on time, you are late.  All equipment will be set up before your guests arrive, unless otherwise requested.

Remember, the two most important services to book for your wedding are the photographer (Pictures last forever) and the DJ (People will always remember the fun!)

Sound System:

The sound systems we use are very high quality with speakers that put out 1,000 watts per side (smaller venues may require smaller speakers). We have recently started implementing the BOSE L1 Model II speaker systems with our DJ systems.  We currently have more than 190,000 songs in our music library.  Current music is obtained through a radio station supplier out of Florida. We carry music from 1938 through today, including Oldies, Motown, Disco, Classic Rock, Mainstream/Top 40, Rhythm, Blues and Country.  We do not play heavy metal or rap music unless it is in the Top 40 charts or requested prior to the event.
