At Sounds Great Music, we offer top quality music services for all kinds of events including weddings, theme parties, and more! We provide a wide variety of music and use up-to-date equipment to ensure you’re getting a great experience. To give your event the best possible atmosphere, when permitted by the venue, we even offer free lighting to enhance the scene.
Everyone knows that music is a critical ingredient for a successful party. We carry the largest selection of music in Ottawa. Over 10,000 songs are at each event we perform. Our music also includes a unique selection of French music and bilingual disc-jockeys are available upon request. We always encourage requests from the crowd. Featuring everything from the classics to modern hits to country alternative – from Bach to rock, we have it all!
What We Play
All of our systems contain licensed music compilations, custom created in our very own music library. In a 5 hour period a DJ will play an average of 75 songs. While the majority of our customers leave the music to us, requests are always welcome, both before and during the function. We do not charge extra money for requests and any songs with questionable lyrics will be cleared by you before they are played. We can also custom-tailor your music to help you plan the soundtrack for a theme or special party.
Another essential ingredient to a successful party is an experienced disc jockey. At Sounds Great Music, our DJs bring with them friendly attitudes, proper attire, and friendly energy that highlights their extensive experience. Since the majority of our staff has been a part of the team for over 5 years, with many DJs here for over a decade, we have cultivated a team of experts who will ensure your party is a success.
Sounds Great Music uses the highest quality equipment on the market. In fact, our tools are so versatile that we not only use them for playing music, but also for PA systems during fashion and trade shows, outdoor events, and live music productions.
In order to satisfy our customers, we choose the equipment that best suits the individual event. To be sure that our system continues to exceed expectations, we constantly upgrade our equipment. There is no home stereo equipment in our systems; no hand-made speakers to be passed off as original manufacturer equipment. We demand the best for our customers, all the time, every time.
All events booked through Sounds Great Music receive lighting services at no extra cost. Our lighting setup consists mainly of line-dancers, Questars, mushrooms and sparklers, as well as double derbies. The only extras we charge for are stage lighting (i.e. follow spots), and fog or bubble machines, which are an ideal addition to weddings, anniversaries, and graduations. All of our lighting meets or exceeds Ontario Hydro Standards.
At Sounds Great Music, you control the volume! We check the sound levels during the function to ensure it is loud enough on the dance floor yet does not impose on guests wishing to socialize. Experts at the sound direction, provide your event with the perfect balance of music and conversation.
