Exceeding Expectations


You’ve found your soulmate, you’ve set your wedding date and you’ve found your venue. Now you need to plan your wedding reception. And what would a reception be without music and entertainment?

But if you’ve never planned a wedding reception or reserved a DJ before, what should you look for? What are the things that an entertainment company should provide so that you get more than just a DJ playing music? How do you make sure you get the right type of music and entertainment, tailored specifically to you, your guests, and your event?

Midwest Sound is one of the few companies serving Wisconsin that specializes in wedding reception entertainment. Over our 43+ years in business, our clients have shared with us the main characteristics that they looked for when reserving a wedding entertainment company. These characteristics include:


On your wedding day – one of the most important days of your life – you want to know that you are entrusting your wedding entertainment to a company and a DJ who knows what they are doing. Because Midwest Sound performs at more receptions than anyone, our entertainers perform at more receptions than anyone. Last year alone, more than 1000 brides and grooms trusted our DJs to perform at their wedding reception. Our experience is not just based on how many receptions we handle, but on the depth and quality of the personal experience our DJs bring to each event. We have developed a proven mentorship and knowledge-sharing program so that all of our DJs benefit from the wealth of experience that our team of DJs brings to our company.


Simply put, this is what a company does to ensure that your entertainer will be there on time and that the equipment will work. Needless to say, life happens. People get sick, family emergencies occur and equipment can malfunction. These things cannot be predicted, you must be prepared for them. Midwest Sound staffs on-duty supervisors, on-duty technicians and on-call DJs. We are prepared for any potential pitfall. We have not missed a reception in our entire history, and we never will! Whether you are just starting to plan, or you are nearing the point of making final decisions, give us a call to learn more about how Midwest Sound can help you host the best wedding reception possible.


No one can read minds, yet this is what some entertainment companies, and DJs who only perform as a hobby, try to do. This may lead to unexpected or uncomfortable situations at your reception. At Midwest Sound, we don’t try to read your mind. We take the time to have a thoughtful conversation with you regarding your preferences for music, reception events and the level of interaction you want from your entertainer. You can have as much or as little control as you wish. We will answer all of your questions, and offer advice based on our 43+ years of experience. In the end, Midwest Sound goes to great lengths to learn about your vision for your perfect evening. Then, we provide exceptional service that is customized to align with that vision.


It is also helpful to hire a DJ who knows your venue (if possible). The DJ’s familiarity with the layout, equipment and staff at your venue can go a long way toward making sure everything goes according to plan. We always make an effort to send an entertainer back to venues he or she has performed at before. To us, that approach just makes good sense. This has led to our DJs having extensive familiarity with many venues throughout Wisconsin, and to Midwest Sound being a trusted and referred entertainment company by catering and hall managers. More importantly, clients have told us that it gives them peace-of-mind to know that they are working with entertainers who have performed in their venue before.

Plan Your Event

Midwest Sound customizes our performances around three specific areas - the music, the events and the level of interaction from your entertainer. You can have as much or as little control as you wish.
