Hey TD, Everything was really great. You were such a good sport when you had to be flexible with us adding our parents to the bridal party introductions, and moving around planned dances because of photos. We had several folks comment on how awesome the music selection was throughout (and Alli and I both agree!). And your attention to detail in knowing when to dial back the energy of the music, as well as what will get people back on the dance floor, was just perfect. Thank you again for working with us and making our wedding reception sound great! All the best, -Matt & Alli
We just want to send your our heartfelt thank you for the wonderful job you did with the music. The Chapel music was beautiful and perfectly timed, the Cocktail music was perfect and you blew the reception away with your song choices and great set up. We really appreciate all the time you put in to make the day so special.
Thank you!!!! -Courtney and Clay
Thank you so very much for being a part of my and Richard’s wedding day! We were definitely happy we went with you as our DJ, and you’ve been excellent to work with leading up to the day. -Anna & Richard

Although wedding planning can be stressful, T.D. made music, audio, and dancing a breeze for us. From day one, he was helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. He knew the layout of the venue like the back of his hand and was able to walk us through his set ups from the ceremony to the reception. As wedding date approached, T.D. had reminders set up in his planning platform to remind us to fill out important information like the schedule of events, song preferences, and how to find our toast speakers. It really made the planning process seamless and easy. On the day of, T.D. never missed a beat and his transitions between ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were flawless. He kept our wedding party dancing the whole night and even ran our wedding shoe game. We could not recommend him more and look forward to working with him in the future! -Daisy and Ryan (venue: Mount Ida Event Barn)
It is the morning after our reception and we are beginning our honeymoon trip to Aruba. We absolutely could not be any happier. Waking up this morning and looking through social media, reading all the comments, everyone had an amazing time. We have received so many messages from our guests about how much fun they had. TD, you rocked it!!! You had everyone dancing. I also wanted to say, you were amazing to work with. You made me feel at ease and took away some of the stress I had. You delivered everything you promised and gave us a night we will never forget. We will be forever grateful. Thank you so very very much! -Becca and Jax (venue: Boar's Head Resort)
T.D was so great to work with! He was a true professional, gave me solid advice to make the whole day perfect! The microphones he used were perfect too because it sounded like your natural voice just louder and no feedback, echo, or anything too loud. All the guests kept saying how great he was and the selection he chose! Great job!!! I will always recommend. -Amanda and Anthony (venue: Callie Opie's Orchard)
T.D!!! You were so amazing, thank you SO much for everything!!!! Everyone had an amazing time on the dance floor!! We give you the highest score possible on every single thing!!! We can't thank you enough!!! -Nancy and Spencer (venue: Big Spring Farm)
10 out of 10 in all categories: Quality of Service, Responsiveness, Professionalism, Value, & Flexibility. We have received so many complements from our friends about our wedding. Most of the complements were about the music and how much fun they had dancing. We appreciate how flexible you were dealing with our multiple rounds of changes. You made our wedding truly special and a lasting memory in everyone's minds. -Ani & Mark
Dear T.D., thanks so much for lending your incredible DJ services to our wedding! You had everyone up and dancing all night and all of our guests had a wonderful time! Thanks again for everything and good luck for the rest of the year. Warmly, -Renuka & Shubho (venue: Keswick Vineyards)
T.D., thank you so much for helping to make our dream wedding a reality! Everything was so seamless throughout the evening and you helped to keep the wedding going all night! The music kept people dancing all night. Hope all is well with you. Happy Holidays! Love, -Amanda & Marcus (venue: Big Spring Farm)
TD was amazing, professional yet laid back. He was recommended to us by our caterer, and after speaking with him on the phone, he was hired! He walked us though everything, and had a detailed form to fill out and get back to him about what kind of music we wanted or didn't want, when we wanted it played, and timeline for the event. We spoke on the phone about a week before the wedding to go over the paper, and he was so knowledgeable and easy to talk to. The day of the wedding, our timeline got moved around due to the health of a family member, and TD barely blinked an eye. He moved songs around for us easily, took examples of songs we had given him and expanded on them, and had everyone out on the dance floor after dinner. I would highly recommend TD and Sound Enforcement to anyone looking for a competent, professional and fun DJ. - Laura B (venue: Wolftrap Farm)
T.D. is a joy to work with. He completely understood our vision and then exceeded all expectations. Our wedding guests did not leave the dance floor which is exactly what I wanted. His packages are extremely reasonable and includes things like customized monogram light and uplighting for no extra charge. I can't recommend him enough!
- Amanda R (venue: King Family Vineyards)
TD was incredible to work with for our wedding! He did a great job working with our outdoor ceremony to make sure the music we selected and all of the readings worked perfectly in the space, and then the music and flow of the cocktail hour and reception was amazing! He was a blast to have at our wedding and we would highly recommend working with him! - Jillian R (venue: Camp Friendship)
T.D. lived up to his word in his ability to read a room. He did a great job keeping everyone on the dance floor and having a wonderful time. He also did a great job providing appropriate music during dinner. His pricing was fair and we couldn't have asked for a better setup and music for our dinner/reception. Admittedly, having not met T.D. in person prior to our wedding day, I was nervous. However, he couldn't have been more professional. He presented himself very well and took his work seriously. Most of all, T.D. cares, which is something you can't hire for You can hire a DJ to play music and provide equipment, but you can't pay them to care. T.D. takes pride his work and really helped put our concerns at ease. Since our wedding, we've been told by a number of our friends that our wedding is now the new "gold standard." Those compliments wouldn't be possible without the help of great people like T.D.
- John D (venue: Irvine Estate)
T.D. is an amazing DJ! People were out on the dance floor from the first dance to the end of the night. His music selection was perfect, getting old and young people out on the dance floor. The music and mic quality at our ceremony was awesome. We cannot thank you enough T.D.! - Sarah N (venue: Panorama Farms)
For our wedding at Keswick Vineyards, we were given a list of prospective DJs to choose from. After inquiring about their recommendation for a DJ that knew how to throw an amazing dance party, we were given TD’s information. From the detailed pre-wedding questionnaire and phone conversations to the day of our wedding, T.D. was very professional, knowledgeable, and a lot of fun. We also used T.D. for our ceremony amplification. We are happy to report that we did not have any microphone malfunctions! Most importantly, the reception was truly a party from the time we were introduced until the time we made our escape. From the lighted monogram initials, choreographed dances, and a variety of music, he made sure we had everything we asked for. T.D. kept us to our timeline and kept the guests aware of the happenings around the venue. We are so thankful to have had him as our D.J., as many memories were made on the dance floor that night. 5 stars from us! Thank you, T.D. - Jamee V (venue: Keswick Vineyards)
Hi T.D,, I felt compelled to email you to say thank you again. David and I have continued to hear from family and friends contacting us to tell us how amazing our wedding was, but more specifically, how perfect the music was throughout the whole night. We had such a mix of people and I can say with confidence that you pleased each and every one. Thank you SO MUCH for being part of our day and for making it more special. We could not have picked a better DJ.
- Erica and David (venue: Veritas Vineyards)
T.D. was AMAZING!!!! From the music to keeping the reception flowing he was just spectacular. Our dance floor was packed from the first song until the very last song and I attribute that to T.D.! Also, we had our reception in two separate rooms and he made sure that the sound was mirrored in both rooms so announcements could be hear in both rooms. Our day of wedding planner turned out to be a bust and T.D. was so easy going and just smiled and told me not to worry about it, that we'd get everyone where they needed to be on time. And he did, he made the announcements on time for dances, cake cutting, moving to the tent... he was just a GIFT! When deciding on uplighting, he was so very patient as I changed my mind twice in the weeks leading up to the wedding. He not only knows how to read a crowd, an amazing MC, but also he's a calming force on a hectic day, and he's caring and kind person and I'd work with him again at any event I have in the future. - Colleen (venue: James Monroe's Highland)
We continuously hear, "your wedding was the best wedding ever!" This is no doubt due to TD keeping the party going all night for our New Year's Eve wedding. TD knows how to read the crowd while pleasing the bride and groom to ensure the dance floor is never empty. He followed my playlist requests and even added one extra song in at the end of the night that so that I left my wedding feeling complete! You will not regret your decision to go with Sound Enforcement DJ Service! - Ashley & Ryan (venue: Boar's Head Inn, Pavilion)
TD was a fantastic find! From start to finish he was easy to work with, knowledgeable, flexible and respectful. He made sure our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception had the perfect music and he double and triple checked all the details prior to the big day. He talked us through tiny details (like exactly how long it would take to get our bridal party down the aisle to make sure our music selections would work) and had our timeline of events down to the minute to keep us on track. My family and friends have difficult to pronounce names but he made sure he had each one perfect and that small detail meant so much to me. He was exactly what we wanted in a DJ - he was able to keep the reception moving and make subtle announcements, but he was never in our face and was definitely NOT one of those cheesy DJs that makes themselves the center of attention. He perfectly read the dancing tastes of our crowd and played the perfect song one after the other. I never left the dance floor and neither did my guests. I could not have asked for a better fit for our event. Thanks TD! - Heather (venue: Mount Ida Farm)
"Thank you for making our wedding day so special. From the mics at the ceremony, to breaking it down on the dance floor. You really helped set the tone of the wedding. You made everything so much fun! Thank you again for everything!" - Lucy & James (venue: Keswick Vineyards)
"Alicia and I have been reminiscing about our recent wedding in August. You were amazing and were definitely a major contributor to the attitude and merriment had by all. My mother has raved about your music selection for months. We just wanted to share our utmost appreciation, not only for your service, but for you. I don't think anyone else could have helped make the day so special... except my spouse. Our first 8 months of marriage abroad has been a whirlwind. Thank you for getting us started off on the rights note. Cheers!" - Pete & Alicia (venue: Trump Winery)
(Recommedation Letter) -
Thanks so much for your e-mail. I’m so thrilled to see that you’re considering T.D. as the DJ for your wedding. Honestly, I just can’t say enough good things about him. He was so understanding of my concerns regarding music since there was such a wide range of ages of our guests. In addition to helping me piece everything together he contributed some really awesome ideas. Not cheesy AT ALL!
When I looked through all of our RSVPs, I didn’t think anyone would actually dance. But Jen, let me tell you… EVERYONE (not exaggerating) was out on the floor and danced the entire night!! T.D.’s timing is right on target!! But on the same token, if your schedule gets thrown off or you get delayed he’s able to hold down the fort and keep everyone entertained.
T.D. is professional and very respectful of your wishes. He will ask your expectations of him and will stick to them- he’s VERY down to earth and a joy to work with! He arrived at our reception venue before any of our guests did and had everything set up and ready to go. The music choices varied and all were appropriate and kept everyone moving! Music for the bouquet toss, garter toss, first dance, etc. were all timed perfectly.
I’ll wrap this up with one more thought… As the bride I felt like there were very few unknowns on our wedding day. Brides are so hands on and know the timing for EVERY little detail so there’s very little room for surprises. Well, T.D. still managed to surprise me at the reception (no, I won’t say how) with something that is to this day, is one my fondest memories of not only our reception, but our wedding day! It meant so much to me that even with all of my many requests and all the juggling he had to do; he still took the time to think of an idea that would make the night even more perfect. Not hiring T.D. would be a huge mistake.
Regardless of your choice, I wish you the best on your wedding day and with your marriage. I hope that you and your husband share many years of happiness.
-Meg (venue: Greencroft Club)
"Thank you so much for doing such a great job with our ceremony amplification and reception music. Everyone, including us absolutely loved the variety. It was such a relief to have someone DJ the reception with minimal direction who was able to feel the "vibe" of the group and get everyone on the dance floor!"
- Ben & Kim (venue: Early Mountain Vineyards)
"It has been an absolute pleasure working with you for our wedding! We knew we were in good hands from the rave reviews from our other vendors, but this night was even better than we could have imagined. We cannot thank you enough for making this amazing day a reality! Thank you!" - Jess & Josh (venue: Keswick Vineyards)
"We can't say enough good things about T.D.! My mother actually booked him originally so I talked to him a couple weeks before the wedding and he had me fill out a questionnaire with the major songs and then style and logistics questions which was really helpful. He worked with our venue to make sure he had everything he needed as far as location setup because I couldn't answer all of his questions (he was able to figure it out without me having to get involved which was wonderful since as a bride there are 8,000 things to do the last month before the wedding!!) We had him do amplification/mics only for our ceremony and that was without a doubt worth it - we had a mic for the minister, the reader, and on the groom's lapel so everyone could hear. Since we were outside this was really important because it's frustrating for guests if they can't hear anything that's going on (at least that's how I have felt!). T.D. was a wonderful MC for the evening, keeping things moving along and making sure guests knew when/where things were happening, and just keeping the atmosphere fun! The music was perfect during dinner and then into the night as things got more lively. We had a diverse group from age 17 to 80's and T.D. was able to read the crowd and played a wide variety of music that appealed to all different age groups. We did the shoe game and his questions were great and everyone of all ages really enjoyed it! We had quite a few people who told us how great they thought our DJ was! He is so nice and was definitely the perfect DJ for our wedding! Thank you T.D.!!" - Jessica (venue: Oak Ridge Estate)
"When my husband and I planned our wedding our goal was to make sure we had the best party ever. That meant we needed a great venue and a great DJ. When we found our venue, we asked them for DJ selections and they gave us T.D's Sound Enforcement DJ Service. Using T.D as our DJ was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. T.D was professional throughout the entire process. He responded quickly to emails, guided us throughout the entire process, checked in to finalize everything a couple of weeks before the wedding, and kept the party going the day of the wedding. T.D was a great MC and DJ the day of, and he took request. I do not think my husband and I could thank him enough for making our wedding day so memorable. If you are able to get T.D as a DJ for your event jump at the chance, you won't regret it." - Erin (venue: Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyard)
"T.D. With Sound Enforcement was amazing. He really knew what to play to get every single one of our guests in the dance floor. His flow of events was perfect and he even surprise us with a game that had all of our guests in laughter. Highly recommended." - Andrea (venue: Trump Winery, Grand Hall)
"T.D. With Sound Enforcement was amazing. He really knew what to play to get every single one of our guests in the dance floor. His flow of events was perfect and he even surprise us with a game that had all of our guests in laughter. Highly recommended." - Andrea (venue: Castle Hill Cider)
"Great great DJ! TD was just amazing and really got our wedding the way we wanted it. TD had all the things we needed, knew the music we wanted (based on a small list of ideas) and really made it fun. He kept the guests in the wedding. Some people, younger people, sometimes questioned why we were playing a lot of oldies, but TD knew that the early crowd was older generation. So not only did he get my 94 year old grandmother dancing, but all of the guests. He was great. And unknown to me, my husband and him also had special stuff planned for me during my father/uncle- daughter dance. And my husband could not have done it without him. Thank you TD! TD's pricing is great, and he has everything you could want. It was great all around and he was just so calm, and so easy to work with! Thanks for everything, and if anyone wants TD to do their wedding, they are seriously in for the best DJ." - Jenna (venue: Veritas Vineyards)
"I received so many compliments on the music both during the ceremony and the Reception. He walked us through the entire process. T.D. did an amazing job. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone." - Jennifer (venue: Inn at Willow Grove)
"TD was wonderful to work with throughout the entire wedding process. From the beginning he was extraordinarily helpful and made sure that we were going to get the services we wanted and needed. He understands what is expected and what fit with our personalities. He goes beyond the call of just being a DJ, he is the perfect combination of professionalism and receptiveness. He helped to ensure that everything went smoothly on the day of the wedding. He supplied and ran the microphones for the service, played music from dinner until the end of the night, and was our MC. He also told me, the bride, not to worry about anything on the day of the wedding related to music, microphones, and our timeline. And thanks to him, I didn't worry about any of it because everything went according to the plan. He also played the perfect music for us and our guests that kept everyone dancing and on their feet throughout the night. He has a great command of the audience. He MC-ed throughout the night, but was not intrusive and made sure the music and scheduled events were the focus of the night. Almost all of our guests, including several family members and friends, made it a point to tell us after the wedding how much they loved our DJ and what an amazing job he did of playing music and MC-ing. We highly recommend T.D. and Sound Enforcement for any and all occasions. Thank you T.D.!!! We can not express how much we appreciate you and how integral you were in making our wedding perfect!!" - Alicia (venue: Keswick Vineyards)
"We hired a DJ because we didn't know what we were doing with music. T.D. was great. Even though we gave him scant guidance on what to play, his song choices were great and everyone loved the music. You could tell that he had done hundreds of weddings and knew what to play and what to do. He was very professional and prompt with communicating, which was a real plus. I have only good things to say about him and would recommend him to anyone." - Ashley (venue: Trump Winery, Pavilion)
"I can't say enough about T.D. and Sound Enforcement. T.D. did an incredible job and helped make our wedding day perfect. I'll try and summarize for each of the categories:
Quality of Service: The music was great, the lighting looked amazing and the ceremony mics ensured that everyone in the crowd could hear what was going on. Several times throughout the night I had family and friends comment on how great the music was, and how nice all the lighting looked. He was patient during all of our planning and never had any issues when we would get back to him on short notice. He kept the energy level high all night and played all the right songs.
Responsiveness: T.D. was great at replying to e-mails and phone calls and we were never the ones waiting to hear back from him. Any time we had questions or concerns, he answered quickly and thoroughly.
Professionalism: T.D. was very professional throughout the evening. He has a great personality, is friendly, punctual, organized, and worked wonderfully with our other vendors and "Day-Of" coordinator. It's obvious that he's worked a number of weddings and knows all the ins and outs of the day. He was never intrusive, and followed the few guidelines we did have with no problem.
Value: Easily worth the money we spent. Really, Sound Enforcement was worth every penny and is a great value.
Flexibility: Perfectly flexible. My wife and I were a bit late getting back to him on several occasions but he was able to meet every need we had without issue. We didn't even get out our suggested songs list until 48 hours prior to our wedding and the playlist was impeccable! During the reception we made a few last second changes to the announcements, order of events and again, no problem.
It was a pleasure working with T.D. and am really glad he was able to be a part of our day. If you need a DJ you absolutely cannot go wrong here." - Kevin & Kaitlyn (venue: King Family Vineyards)
"Thank you so much for a great evening. We had a blast and everything went perfect. Please feel free to add us to your list of references. Everyone, my family especially, raved about how good of a job you did. Your MC skills were amazing and we couldn't have asked for more. The music was spot on and I don't remember there being much room on the dance floor throughout the night. All the best for the rest of the wedding season.
We hope to see you soon." - Stephen (venue: Early Mountain Vineyards)
"You did a great job! You were very personable, friendly and accommodating. You were organized and in control. You mixed the music up well. And you kept the crowd engaged and the dance floor full, Everyone had a really good time." - Paul (venue: Blenheim Vineyards)
"Thank you for a wonderful night. We had a great time. You exceeded all expectations and gave us a night to remember." - Diane (venue: Market at Grelen)

"T.D. is an outstanding DJ! He was not only professional, but a lot of fun to work with, both on our wedding day and throughout the planning process. We loved his music selection and emcee skills, and especially the fun surprises he included during the night! Our guests had a wonderful time. We would not hesitate to hire him for another event, and we certainly hope to do so in the future. T.D. definitely made our wedding day a hit!" - Sara (venue: Keswick Vineyards)
"Amazing D.J. service! My husband and I really enjoyed working with T.D. Many of our guests have written or called complimenting his services. He was flexible, really enjoyed what he was doing, and worked well with the crowd. He followed all of the requests that I put in and was wonderful at supplementing when needed. I wouldn't think twice about using him again! Thank you." - Kristen (venue: Omni Hotel)
"My wife and I can honestly say that Sound Enforcement was everything and more than we had hoped for in a DJ at our wedding reception. All of our guests raved about how much fun they had thanks to his DJ services. We would definitely recommend Sound Enforcement for any event!" - Michael (venue: King Family Vineyards)
"T.D., you did an awesome job doing our wedding! It was more than I could have ever imagined. I loved the shoe game and dance that you did. It was so nice to have a few surprises that I didn't know about...especially since I was exhausted planning it all! I've had so many people tell me how great it was and loved the extra touches you added! Trust me...I've recommended you to several people getting married within the next year! You were worth every penny and more! Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did! You truly made our day even more special! My family absolutely loved you...as you could tell they're dancers!" - Erica (venue: Veritas Vineyards)
"Mr. Layman, Thank you for agreeing to play for our graduation party at such short notice. You were wonderful. The kids loved you. You have a great assortment of music. I can't believe the kids were requesting music from my generation. You are very professional and a lot of fun." - Stephanie
"Thank you for everything you did for the Charlottesville Dogwood Festival Queen's Ball. It was the best ball we have ever had. Everyone I spoke with stated you were the best emcee we've ever had. You had people dancing all night and you were very involved with the guests as well as the Dogwood Princesses. Thank you and see you next year."
"T.D., You made prom. Your experience and knowledge helped prom become more than I dreamed it could be. Because of you prom was GREAT!!! Thank you so much for your help. The school administration thought you were great and the students thought you were awesome. I hope you are available next year." - Lissa
"We threw ideas and changed what we wanted to have done even as the reception was in progress. Before, during and after TD was incredible!We had never met prior to planning our reception. He had come highly recommended by someone I trusted. He was always professional and calm trying to wade through the hodge podge of information he was provided. He blended in at the country club and was a class act.He took the time to try to understand (maybe better than I) what I was looking for. Everyone had a blast. He even showed a curious toddler his sound board. I believe some would have handled things very differently. Would I recommend him? You bet!" - Cynthia
"Sound Enforcement DJ Service was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding...with the very affordable price and the outstanding professionalism that was showed throughout the evening and over the months leading up to our wedding...i'd recommend sound enforcement DJ service to anyone who is looking for any and all DJ services...THANK YOU!!!" - Ashley
"T.D. was great to work with. His expertise made the planning of our reception easy. He thought of so many things that were very helpful. It was relaxing to rely upon his experience and knowledge. Our reception was awesome. Everyone danced and had a great time. T.D. played a variety of music that was pleasing to all of our guests. I had never seen my father dance before. It was great!" - Kristen
"T.D., Thank you for making our wedding a special occasion we will cherish forever. Thank you for assisting us with the planning of our reception. Your recommendations were great and everything was awesome! Your services came highly recommended and we now know why. Everyone had such a wonderful time." - Sarah
"We want to thank you for doing such a great job as our DJ at our wedding. You are very professional, friendly, and easy to work with and we have heard nothing but compliments about the way you conducted your services.
Everyone especially loved the "shoe game" and we can't wait to see how we were voting when we get the video! It was a great time and a terrific way to get people excited. We noticed we had a rather older crowd at our wedding and that people were doing a lot of sitting around at one point but you always had something ready to get them moving. Thanks for having such keen audience awareness and tailoring our reception to an event everyone could enjoy. We saw people on the dance floor that we thought we would never see out there!
Also, thank you for keeping in touch with us through the reception to let us know what was going on, to make suggestions, and to respond to our requests. You were on top of everything and we could relax knowing you were in all over it.
If you ever need a reference, we would be happy to recommend you. Of course, it is our pleasure to spread the word about your fantastic DJ service. We appreciate your patience, understanding, time, and effort in making our wedding day everything and more we hoped it would be." - Alicia & Greg
"Mr. Layman, Thank you for making our prom a memorable one. Thank you for meeting with us and going over the layout and setup. It was great having your expert knowledge of what would work best for the space we had. The music was hot, sounded great, and everyone danced all night long." - Stephanie, Kelly, Lisa, Joni
