Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions...

Being engaged and planning your Wedding is supposed to be fun, but looking around for musical entertainment for your Reception can be very time-consuming and confusing. In a recent Wedding Magazine Survey, 70% of Brides said that they felt that the Entertainment for their special day was the most important part of their Reception. After your meal is done, what do you and your guests plan on doing for 3 hours if there's no music? At Sound Investment, we want you to call us at 203-770-2595 to make an appointment and seriously take a look at why we're better and what we are offer - a side by side comparison to other companies that you may be considering.

If your Wedding is in Connecticut, The BEST Advice that we can give you is to hire a Local, Experienced DJ Company with back up DJs. Out of State DJ's have little or no experience when it comes to working at Connecticut's finer Reception Facilities. We can tell you stories about us getting called from desperate couples on their Wedding Day who booked Out Of State DJs that were either: Stuck in Traffic on 95, The Merritt Parkway, 684 or 84; Couldn't find the Reception Venue; or just Showed up late. Who needs that?



We have a Package for Every Budget!

Master DJ's = Happy Couples
The One-Time Shot...

Let's face it, Your Wedding Reception is a one-time shot, the ONE DAY that you have planned for since you got engaged. You owe it to yourself, your family and your guests to rely on Sound Investment to make all of the hard work planning your day pay off. Your Wedding Reception is no place for inexperienced amateurs that "Play DJ" on the weekend. At Sound Investment, this is our Full-Time Profession, not something we do "on the side". Remember, the DJ is the Quarterback of your Wedding "Team". Some area DJs need to play Group Dances (if you want it or not), stand on Speakers and turn your Reception into a Circus because to them it is really about "them" and not about "you". Beware of Companies that OFFER PHOTO, VIDEO & DJ for a Combo Rate! You will quickly discover that although they may have been in business for years (doing one service), they may actually have no experience or only a year or so playing music at Weddings. You may even discover that they use Sub-Contractor DJs from Other Companies or only just bought a DJ Company. There should be an ASTERISK on their Website and Literature letting you know! Our Warm and Friendly, "Down-to Earth" style will allow your Parents to Relax, your Guests to feel Welcome and You to Enjoy your Day! Since 1984, Brides and Grooms have counted on Sound Investment's Seasoned Veteran DJs for their Wedding Reception and they have not been disapointed. Our DJs are CONSTANTLY receiving GRATUITIES after Wedding Receptions. We're that Good. We are so confident that you too will be impressed with our level of committment and service that we are the ONLY DJs around that offer a Money-Back-Guarantee on our "A" and "B" Wedding Packages, the ones handled by our Master DJs. No one has ever asked for their money back. At Sound Investment, You're a Friend First, then a Valued Customer!

Music Consultants...

Picking out music for the Reception should be fun. Most Brides and Grooms pick songs from our Online Music Library of 5,000,000 titles, PLUS 5 Million songs on Apple's iTune's site. On our music site you can pick "Must Plays" and "Do Not Plays" in addition to general requests. If we don't have a song on your list, we will purchase it and get it for you at no additional charge. Just be careful of what you pick! People tend to dance to songs that they know or have heard at other Wedding Receptions. If you want a lot of dancing at your Reception you need to make sure that your musical selections will appeal to to a wide segment of your guests. Our Hot 100 List will help you pick out music or offer suggestions that "works" for your guest list. Sound Investment will always honor the songs on your list and those requests from your guests BEFORE we play something else.

Ceremony / Cocktail Music Systems...

Having your Ceremony at your Reception Site? Is your Cocktail Hour in a different room than the Reception? Perhaps you should consider using one of our Battery-Powered, Wireless Speaker Systems? These systems are not "Boom Boxes" or Cheesy Karoke Machines that play Cassette Tapes that the other DJs use, if they have anything at all! When used in conjunction with equipment from our Sister Company it works Flawlessly!

• Can run off of AC/ DC Power
• Self-Contained
• Small but Powerful
• Has Inputs for Lav Mics, RCA's for Music
• Wireless option - Good for 200 yards away!
• Real PRO GRADE A/V Equipment

"...That was by far the best music mix I have ever heard played at a wedding; and the great thing it was mine..."

Wedding Coordinators...

Being successful Wedding DJs means that we need to know many things: Protocol, Tradition, Music Knowledge, Psychology, Public Speaking and the ability to "read" the crowd. But we also need to be a little bit of "Wedding Coordinator" too. For your Wedding, it is our responsibility to:

• Do a Site Survey of an unfamiliar Venue, if neccessary
• Have EVERY SONG on your MUSIC LIST
• Arrive 60-90 minutes early for Set up
• Test all equipment prior to Guest Arrivals
• Have music playing as Guests arrive, even if it's early
• Be dressed formal, in a Tuxedo
• Follow your reception plans and keep them on track
• Line up your Bridal Party
• Instruct the Best Man on the Toast
• Establish a rapport with your guests
• Coordinate Introductions, First Dance and Dinner with the Catering Facility, Photographer and Videographer
• Get people on the dance floor in between courses
• Keep our finger on the "Pulse" of your Wedding so that it doesn't get boring.
• Keep the music volume at a resonable level during Dinner
• Alert the Photographer/Videographer if plans unexpectedly change
• Handle the Cake Cutting
• Introduce Parent Dances
• Announce any Birthdays or Anniversaries you may provide
• Tastefully handle the Garter/Bouquet Toss

At Sound Investment we have worked with every Photographer, Videographer and at Over 350 Catering Venues in this area. Check out our Venues Page to see if your Reception Site is listed.

Unique Wedding Reception Ideas...

Infocus LCD Projector and Da-Lite Screen

Video Slide Shows...

Laptop Powerpoint and DVD Video Slide Shows are becoming increasingly popular at today's Wedding Receptions. We have seen some pretty bad PowerPoint shows by well-meaning guests and Short, Expensive "Videographer" Shows using "Un-Restored" photos with specks of DUST/DIRT on them (because they charge you a lot to remove flaws).

Our "Sister" Company can Create a DVD Slide Show for you or Provide the necessary equipment to show it to your Guests during your Reception. Even if you don't use Sound Investment for your entertainment needs and want this for your Reception, we'd be happy to talk to you. We have Two Staff members that are fluid in Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple's Final Cut Pro / DVD Studio Pro and Avid that can work with you in Creating an EMOTIONALLY POWERFUL "STORY" about you and your fiance with Music. Our DVD Slide Shows have become INSTANT FAMILY HEIRLOOMS. Just provide us with your Pictures and Video Footage, we'll provide you and your guests with the Kleenex.

• Open to Non-Sound Investment Clients
• Make Your Own and have us Show it For You
• 60-90 Pictures, about 10-14 minutes long with Music
• Includes Touch up of Old Pictures
• Includes Projection Equipment, Screen, Player, Speaker
• Includes Back up Projection Equipment
• Includes a Certified A/V Tech to Set it up, Show it, Breakdown
• Includes Delivery, We Bring it, You just "Show Up"

• Includes 3 DVD Copies, 1 for you and 2 for your Parents
• SI Clients pay only for the Equipment Rental

3 Chip Camera Rentals...

Because of today's Tight Wedding Budgets, some Brides and Grooms can not afford to have a Professional Videographer costing THOUSANDS of Dollars at their Reception. Professional Videographers use 3 Chip Cameras that provide Superior Image Quality. Most Couples often are forced on asking Family Members and Guests to capture special moments during the day with their own 1-Chip or Analogue Consumer Home Camcorders. The results are:

• Missed footage
• "Wobbly", Uneven Pictures
• Poor Lighting
• Poor Audio
• Grainy Images

**We do need to be RESPECTFUL of our Professional Videographer Friends and point out that they really do a Great Job. If you want all the "Bells and Whistles" please find them on our Wedding Links Page.

At Sound Investment we offer you TWO Affordable Solutions!




3 Chip Canon GL2 Digital Video Camera
1.) You can RENT one of our Professional 3 Chip Camera Outfits from our "Sister" Company and have one of your Guests Videotape the Day. It's the SAME Equipment used by The Expensive Videographers! Includes:

• Professional Tripod with Fluid Head
• Profesional Dolly
• Enough Batteries to last the Day
• Professional, Dimmable Light Source
• Clip On Wireless Lav Mic for Ceremony
• 4 Mini DV Video Tapes
2.) You Can also have one of our Corporate Video Guys from our "Sister" Company Videotape Everything For you without the Editing. We Can Also Burn EVERYTHING on DVD For You.
For a FRACTION of the COST we'll be Responsible for:
