Loved his improvisation

If I could give Alan 10 stars I would. He threw an amazing party. Our wedding reception was a hit, all because of Alan, and his ability to run the show and entertain guests. I loved his improvisation. He did a great job using his skills to represent me and my husband. I would be honored to have him dj another event.

Provided amazing service (and tunes!)

We loved working with Alan of Puget Sound DJ for our wedding! He was one of the first vendors we talked to, and we are so glad we did.

Alan took the time to get to know us as a couple and as an individual, and he helped us create the entire timeline for the big day. We loved having Alan as a resource not only for great music, but also to help us make the guest experience fun and memorable and to guide us through the wedding planning process.

Alan was timely, organized, flexible, and communicative, and he provided amazing service (and tunes!) on the big day. We highly recommend Puget Sound DJ’s services!

Alan is Incredible

Alan was a dream DM for us. He spent multiple meetings getting to know us and our story. He helped us with advice for other issues that were coming up for the wedding. He gave us bits of advice to make our special day even better. His DJ skills were also on-point. Do yourself a favor, get Alan as a DJ, you won’t be disappointed.

Absolutely Amazing!

Alan is not just a DJ. I would say he plays the most important role in your day. He was there every step of the way and truly took his time getting to know us. After our wedding people were still talking about him. Alan was there at my sister’s wedding and now my wedding and I wouldn’t have it any other way. We can’t thank you enough Alan!

Kept the party going!

DJ Alan was so much fun to have at our wedding! He was great at keeping the party going – reading the crowd and switching things up as needed. He also really listened to us – we wanted some more unusual music and he did a great job balancing that with keeping the crowd happy. He kept things running smoothly and on-time for the entire day and was a great asset to our vendor team!

Alan was extremely attentive and professional from the first consultation through the end of the wedding.

I highly recommend him as a DJ and MC!

Makes it his mission to make your wedding as personalized as possible

Alan is an amazing DJ/MC.

He truly goes above and beyond and it is so apparent just how much he cares about his couples. Due to COVID, my husband and I had to move our wedding from California to Seattle and we were lucky to have found Alan with only a month until the wedding.

About two weeks prior to the wedding, we learned we had to reschedule it to 4 days earlier. We contacted Alan about the change, he said that he had a family vacation planned for then but that he would call us back. Alan called us back 30 min later and stated “I’m onboard.” While I never want someone to take away from family time, I was so appreciative of Alan AND his family.

Alan makes it his mission to make your wedding as personalized as possible, to have your guests feel truly like a part of your big day, not just witnesses. The wedding was seamless. He worked closely with my coordinator and the venue owners and the day was truly magical. I cannot recommend Alan enough. He was a huge part into making our day amazing. Thank you.

Kept our guests entertained with hilarious table questions

We could not have been any happier with our decision to hire Alan to DJ our wedding! After losing our previous DJ due to COVID circumstances, we scrambled for a replacement and Alan came highly recommended. Alan responded 30 minutes after our initial inquiry and made us feel so comfortable that, even with our very compressed timeline, we felt like we were in a much better position than with our previous DJ. He spent time on several Zoom calls working through details, helping us plan out the order of the ceremony and reception, learning all about our wedding party and making sure all of our favorite songs made it onto the dance floor with us. When it came to the day, he arrived completely prepared and worked closely and effectively with our coordinator and venue to make our day completely perfect and seamless. He kept our guests entertained with hilarious table questions, gave personalized introductions for each member of our wedding party, and as a testament to his skills, we even had guests asking for links to his playlists! We definitely made the right decision choosing Puget Sound DJ and we cannot recommend Alan enough for any event!

Wedding day Pro!

Alan with Puget Sound DJ is an absolute pro when it comes to DJ responsibilities on wedding day. Music aside, he does an incredible job keeping the timeline moving and on-tract, as well as keeping the guests entertained. He has great ideas on games to play, presentation, locations, and more to make the day memorable. Communication is clear and really gets to know the bride and groom, as well as the entire wedding party to tie all of the days events together. Music taste is on point also. Alan knows how to keep a vibe going, or change accordingly. He plays everything you want, won’t play what you don’t want, and will only take requests if you want him to. Also, he is absolutely affordable, no need to spend $5k on a DJ, when he will do an incredible job for less! Give him a chance when considering your DJ needs, not only for wedding days!

Best DJ Ever

Alan is amazing. He picked up on our style and created an amazing experience for us. He makes you do some homework but it’s worth it to get the right ambiance that you’re looking for. He was able to read the room and adjust for when people wanted to really party and dance verses when they wanted to relax and enjoy the property and mingle.
One of my groomsmen/bridesmaid wasn’t able to make the wedding because the groomsmen was on a transplant list and got the call for his transplant the night before the wedding. Alan went out of his way to take videos of the ceremony and dances so the groomsman could watch it. What an incredible act of service. Thank you for all you do Alan, you’re amazing!

DJ’s Got It Covered

Alan is more than a DJ he is more like a wedding planner who also can get the party started! Alan gets to know you and your love story and individualized your entrances and songs to help guests get to know you and your wedding party on a more intimate level. He is in constant contact with the caterers and the venue to make sure all the visions and plans and our schedule runs smooth. Alan played music to get the people on the dance floor and also was into playing games and fun “win the centerpiece” table challenges. We had the best stress-free night and we know a lot of it was because of Alan the best DJ/Wedding Planner!

Fantastic MC & DJ

Alan was quick to respond to my e-mail inquiring about his services. He set up a time for us to chat and within in the first fifteen minutes I knew he was right DJ/MC for us. Alan took the time to get to know us as individuals as well as a couple.
He is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to weddings. I appreciate his willingness to help create our wedding timeline. He is full of great ideas. Alan is more than just a DJ, he is a great MC. He is driven to make your wedding day all about you and your spouse. He kept things flowing throughout our big day. Nothing felt rushed.
I found his portal website extremely helpful for picking out our songs. He is worth every penny if you want someone to get to know you! He isn’t just there to change a few music tracks; he is there to help make your day extremely special!

“Easily the best choice we made for our wedding”

Alan did our wedding on 8/18/18. He was easily the best choice we made for our wedding. He was dressed sharp, knew his job extremely well, and made DJing look easy.
We danced almost 3 hours thanks to him and each song was a great follow to the other. He was very helpful in structuring time management through music for our wedding, and being that we were the first of our friends to get married, he was a unbelievable wealth of knowledge to lean on.
Alan gets a 20/10 in my book, the only reason I rated him 5/5 is because this website restricts me from going higher.

Alan was the perfect DJ for our wedding. We hired him on relatively short notice and luckily he was still available for our Sunday wedding. He was happy to work with the band we hired as well. He is truly an expert and gave us some great ideas and advice. (One of his ideas, the bouquet tossing song, turned into one of my favorite moments of the night…impromptu bridesmaid dance party!)
Overall, Alan is a pleasure to work with and we would definitely recommend him for your event!

“Really committed to helping us have the wedding of our dreams!”

Alan was the DJ/MC at my wedding and he did a fantastic job!
I have received multiple compliments from family and friends about how great he was in making our wedding fun and memorable!!
My husband and I are by no means expert party planners, and Alan’s overall wedding /event expertise was a great help to us in the planning process. He went out of his way to come to our area and meet with us several times in person to guide us and offer advice (but was also super open to any ideas we had).
His website is easy to use and has a lot of helpful tips. There is also a great planning form that you can fill out and really asks a lot of questions that helps the party flow, but that the novice party planner wouldn’t necessarily think to ask. Alan also has excellent music (duh!) with comprehensive lists of songs, helpfully grouped by what part of the wedding they are meant to be used in ( ie; grand entrance, first dance ect.). This was awesome in helping us find some perfect song choices that we wouldn’t have thought of on our own.
We also REALLY appreciated that all of his costs were up front and simple. Alan has a flat fee, and he is at your service for your whole event! No add-ons, hidden charges, or trying to nickle and dime you for extra time or special requests! Poof! so much stress gone, just like that!
On the day of the event, Alan was punctual, professional, and energetic (even though it was HOT and we were not his first wedding that weekend!). He came to the venue and set up all his equipment on his own with no special help. Throughout the reception he would come check in with my husband and I to let us know what was coming next and if we needed to be doing something, but was not at all intrusive or pushy.
Overall, he was just really committed to helping us have the wedding of our dreams!
Thanks Alan! Couldn’t have done it without you!

Above and beyond what we expected.

Alan spent a lot of time working with us to edit a song for our first dance as well as helped us chose a father/daughter dance song. He also met us at the venue so he could see it first hand and help us design a floor plan. He also helped gauge how long Cocktail Hour needed to be and assisted in our timeline making. It was above and beyond what we expected.

We interviewed a few different DJs before choosing Alan. When we asked some questions of the other DJs, one of them felt that a backup set of equipment was unnecessary. Another felt that they didn’t need to insure their own equipment, rather that the venue should do it for them. We definitely didn’t like either of those answers. Alan is insured, licensed, has a back up set of equipment, has his own website, and can take requests both on the fly and ahead of time.

“You can tell he truly enjoys what he does”

Alan was the best choice for our wedding! Being a destination couple (we live in Arizona) we were nervous about the selection of our vendors. Alan was highly recommended by our venue and we got the opportunity to hear him DJ at an open house.
We knew that Alan was the right choice after speaking with him for the first time. He is incredibly knowledgeable and professional and he takes time to meet with you and understand what you want to overall feel of your wedding to be. He spent a lot of time with us via phone and/or Skype and met with us in person before the wedding.
The day of the event Alan was early to set up and so helpful.
Alan knows how to keep the flow of the wedding going smoothly and he kept us on time. We didn’t need to worry about any details of what was next, Alan knew (due to our prior conversations) and he kept us on schedule.
He was friendly with guests, a great speaker, and you can tell he truly enjoys what he does. We are so thankful to Alan for not only making our day special but being there for us and keeping everything running smoothly.
I would choose Alan again and give him the highest recommendation!

“Such a key person in our wedding. He helped us plan, brainstorm, and he made our wedding the fun time that it was”

Alan is extremely personable. We liked the style and vision that he had. After meeting with him, he was able to answer all of our questions, he offered great ideas, and he was genuinely excited about our wedding. His excitement made us even more excited. He was extremely committed to making our day special. You could tell this wasn’t just a job he was going to. He truly was there for us and to make our day special.
At our wedding he went above and beyond our expectations. Everyone was up and dancing, there was a smooth musical transition to each portion of our wedding, and we got lots of compliments on how great he was. My husband and I did not want to do a bouquet toss/garter, instead we wanted to do the shoe game. I have a love for golden retrievers and Alan had a shoe for my husband and golden retriever stuffed animal for me. Everyone absolutely loved it and it amazed me. Just the little personal thought that went into setting that up touched me, and it was recognized by all of our guests.
Alan was essential in our planning. He helped us figure out the feeling we wanted and how we can choose music to help guide that feeling and flow of the wedding. He gave us a great ideas for our exit which our guests absolutely loved! He was extremely professional, a great MC, and musically he did a phenomenal job. We told Alan that we wanted to make sure everyone was up and dancing and told him to do his thing and that we trusted his choices. Every single person danced at our wedding. That meant so much to us since it truly was our goal. He really delivered. Alan evaluated the group and brought everyone together.
Alan was worth everything that we paid for and more. We would highly recommend him over and over again. When we started our search we were expecting to just find a DJ, however, Alan delivered so much more. He was such a key person in our wedding. He helped us plan, brainstorm, and he made our wedding the fun time that it was. He kept everything on track and got everyone up. We were so impressed. We knew after talking with him and planning what our idea of what we were expecting was, but he had his own personal touches just for us during the wedding that touched us so much. He delivered what he promised and so so much more. Our wedding was seamless and we owe that to Alan. Everything flowed, everyone had a good time, and it was perfect. We got so many compliments on how well Alan did and how great he was. The way he worked and communicated to make everything flow from ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing truly made the wedding the great time that it was.

He also knew our group wanted a killer dance party – and that is what we got! We still get compliments today about how great the dance party was.
He also had a ton of good advice with flow, speeches, and dancing 🙂 He was funny, professional, and organized.
We spent hours with Alan in-person and on the phone before the wedding, hashing out even the smallest details. You don’t just pay for the day-of – you pay for access to his advice for months in advance!
Our wedding was exactly what we wanted. We wanted a laid back, intimate vibe. We didn’t want to be stressed and wanted to have fun. AND we wanted to dance the night away.

I definitely felt he was committed to making our day everything we wanted it to be. I felt he was very genuine and you can tell he really enjoys what he does.
He had tons of ideas and we bounced ideas off of him as well and he made a note of everything we wanted to do. If we had an idea that he hasn’t seen go over too well in the past, he was honest in telling us so. He knows what he is doing.
I’m pretty sure he played all the songs we requested. (hard to say). But our guests were dancing all night long, so that outta tell you something.
He was funny and he wasn’t talking too much. He had an idea to dismiss the guests for dinner by asking trivia questions about us. Everyone seemed to enjoy it.

An absolute master at what he does and someone who kept the party rolling all night long.
When hiring a DJ you need to look at more than just fancy equipment (which he has plenty).
You need some somebody who you trust to direct the flow and pacing of one of the most important nights of your life.

“Alan gave me the gift of allowing me to be completely present during our reception”

First off, we had a blast and Alan contributed to it.

We wanted our wedding to be fun but honestly had no idea about the details. After our first meeting with Alan it was clear how thoughtful and committed he was in helping us create an event that mirrored us not him.

He’s not flashy or over the top, he’s genuine and with the subtly art of adjusting his energy level to match yours. We definitely felt it during the wedding and reception. When we were high, the music was pumping, which quite honestly was most of the night, and when things needed to slow down he eased into it without it being awkward.

We did have a little hiccup with our recessional music, but it added to the intimacy of the event along with giving some of our late guest a chance to say they witnessed our ceremony (at least a part of it).

I’m a planner and could easily of been caught up in the details during the event, but Alan gave me the gift of allowing me to be completely present during our reception because he was managing our pre-arranged goals. After a few items got ticked off without me needing to prompt it, i knew I could relax.

During the planning process he was excellent with guiding us through the “details” as well as being open to challenging his own comfort level after we decided to have an east coast style reception, with dancing in between courses. 🙂

Everyone absolutely loved and adored you!

Thank you so much for being such an amazing DJ! Everyone absolutely loved and adored you!
You are awesome and I am so happy you DJ’d our wedding.
The music was great. You rocked and I can’t thank you enough.
My next big party (Mike’s 50th) I do plan on giving you a call!

“We felt as though we had nothing to worry about and I cannot say enough how meaningful that feeling can be on such a momentous day”

Alan was extremely friendly, easy to collaborate with and had such a passion for his work and music that it was hard not to make the decision to work with him!
Alan provided excellent service and became such a mentor throughout the process – something we definitely were in need of to help keep our heads straight.
He provided great advice that was thoughtful and catered to who we were as a couple – you could tell that he really cared about making the day special for us and something that we would always want to remember.

Alan was extremely helpful in planning and also realistic which was such a refreshing experience. Our wedding day went a bit crazy in regards to weather and he was so prepared – adjusting the schedule and helping us make decisions that made the most sense for us and our guests. We felt as though we had nothing to worry about and I cannot say enough how meaningful that feeling can be on such a momentous day in our lives.
The music was amazing and really made the evening. Alan was so great in selecting and changing up the tempo at the appropriate times. The night flowed so well and the selections he made were perfect!

We were expecting a 70 degree sunny day and were treated to thunderstorms and flooded tent – the best part about all of that was that neither my husband or I will remember that. We will always remember how much fun people had and what a great time we both were able to enjoy because of Alan’s choices and MC duties. He made appropriate decisions regarding guests that wanted to steal the show every so often and those moments made the night even more spectacular. When we received our photos back from our photographer our first response was “people really did have an amazing time”!

Our wedding was so spectacular – there was so much laughter and love – people dancing that shouldn’t have been and so many more memorable moments that Alan helped create.

He’s personal without being overbearing and professional without being pushy or opinionated – the best of his kind 🙂
We can never thank you enough for all your help and support during one of the most important days of our lives. Your passion for music and was so apparent in your approach – you made it fun and that was the absolute best way to celebrate how far we had come leading up to that day and exactly where we wanted to go in the future. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Was so helpful every step of the way, he really did play a huge part in making our day amazing

The moment we spoke with Alan, we knew he was the right choice. He was so passionate about what he does and had so much information for us! He told us that he was more than just a DJ and that we were more than his clients.

Alan surpassed our expectations! He was absolutely amazing. We cannot express enough how thankful we are that he was able to be there on our special day. Everything from the ceremony up until the very end of the reception was absolutely perfect. He worked closely with both our photographer and planner to ensure that everything was running smoothly. He truly made our day special in more ways than one!

We 100% feel that Alan was personally committed to making our day what we wanted! During our multiple phone calls, he gave us suggestions and made sure that everything was exactly how we wanted. We felt more like an extension of his family than his clients.

Alan was so helpful! I don’t know what we would have done without all of his great advice. He has so much knowledge and information, it is beyond fantastic! We had no clue a week before the wedding what songs we wanted for some of our major events, but he was quick to give us amazing suggestions.

We had planned not to do a reveal and I as the bride was deadest on having my husband see me at the altar. Alan explained to us what he has seen in his previous experiences with reveals and we are so thankful we chose to do a reveal!!! It was such a special moment and we are so grateful that Alan shared his knowledge and experience with us! Best decision ever to do a reveal!

Alan was very professional. All of his equipment looked fantastic, and his setup was very classy and looked great! He showed up looking very sharp and his overall approach was perfect.

Alan’s music choices were awesome! We had planned on creating an entire playlist from start to finish for the entire wedding but got caught up in the wedding planning. A week before the wedding, we only had a few songs picked out and were worried we didn’t have everything else planned out. Alan asked us some general questions about some different kinds of music that we would like to hear during cocktail hour, dinner, etc. He took that feedback and had a playlist for the entire event!! We were beyond thrilled, this eliminated so much stress on our end and our guests have done nothing but give us amazing feedback about how much they loved the music selections and Alan. The timing on everything was perfect and the volume was right where it needed to be.

He is great at what he does and is a phenomenal MC. On a scale of 1 to 10, we give Alan a 15! He was so on top of knowing when different events were taking place and he was really good at giving the guests direction and filling them in every step of the way.

We definitely feel like the value of Alan’s service vs. the price we paid was amazing! Alan’s services in our mind are priceless, he did such a fantastic job. He doesn’t nickel and dime you for every little thing like so many DJs do and this was so helpful for us. It put us at ease and the process was so seamless and not stressful at all!

Our wedding was so perfect! It was way beyond our expectations, I have been smiling for a week straight! We feel that Alan had a major impact on helping to make our day perfect. He kept the energy up throughout the entire night, created special memories for Brian and I that we will cherish forever, and he made us feel really special. He was so helpful every step of the way, he really did play a huge part in making our day amazing!

If a friend asked us about Alan’s services, we would say they are fantastic! He really cares about his clients and really strives to make your event a great one, he will take the time to get to know you and find out what is important to you. We will be recommending him to anyone and everyone we know! You can’t go wrong with picking Alan as your DJ, you will be so happy you picked him!

You have no idea how thankful we are that you were part of our special day! You really helped to make everything go really smoothly, which really eliminated a lot of stress for us and allowed us to just enjoy our day. Your communication with the wedding planner and Cait was so great! The memories you helped us to create will last a lifetime.  Alan, thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts for sharing our special day with us and for helping to make it absolutely amazing!

Choosing Alan to share our big day with us was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! Thank You so much, Alan!

We pulled that thing off without a hitch. Planning is key and Alan certainly was part of the team that made it great.

The day wouldn’t have been a success without him!!!

We had Alan DJ for our wedding last summer.
I didn’t have a day of planner so I needed a DJ who was able to carry the whole day and entertain all the guests.
Alan was perfect!! He was very organized and made a timeline for the whole day so we knew exactly what was happening when.
He took the time to get to know my fiancé and I so he could make it more personal, rather than some cookie cutter reception.
I had a few songs that I had to have at the wedding but other than that I left it up to him. The guests loved him. We were so happy we found him.

“We loved how personal you made the whole day feel and how you included everything we wanted”

We chose Alan because of his enthusiasm, his engaging and charismatic personality and the fact that he takes full responsibility for the reception. He was fantastic, engaging and all of our friends and family LOVED him! Also, he totally took responsibility for the reception which I loved.

He totally made the day about us and what we told him we wanted. He made it super personal, sweet and went with the flow which was amazing.

I loved that he met with us for almost 2 hours while planning for our reception. I LOVED the introduction of the wedding party, I had never seen that before and everyone loved it. It made it so personal and helpful for those who don’t know us a ton to get a glimpse of the people we surround ourselves with. He definitely had great advice as far as getting people down the aisle. Also, the shoe game was a fantastic idea. I had seen it once at a wedding and it was awkward so I was pretty hesitant to do it, but Alan made the game so fun and entertaining for the guests. People still remind me how fun that was for them to watch.

Alan was completely professional the entire time. He took the job very seriously but had so much fun.

We’ve had several people say “it felt like I was listening to my favorite playlist on my ipod!”

He was fantastic. I loved how he made everyone feel included in the day. He was funny, charismatic and all around great to listen to.

We originally weren’t going to have a DJ because of the cost, but Alan was an inexpensive option. Looking back on it now I would pay so much more for his services because of the quality he provides.

Honestly, our wedding was the best day of my life for so many reasons. it was just a really fun party with all of my closest friends and family and Alan played a huge role making that happen. He made sure that everyone that we wanted to have happened, he played all of our music requests, he included all of our guests in the reception.

I’ve already recommended him to several friends. The biggest thing that led me to choosing Alan was that he told us he takes full responsiblity for everything at the reception, from the cake cutting to making sure the photographer is there for every important event. As a bride this was amazing because I wanted no stress the day of my wedding and that’s exactly what that promise included.

James and I were amazed with your DJ and MC skills. We loved how personal you made the whole day feel and how you included everything we wanted. Thank you for all you did to make our wedding day the best day of our lives.

The event felt like us.

Thanks for helping to make our big day so special. We wanted tunes that reflected our personalities, down-to-earth and off beat take to our wedding day. You helped us to nail it!

The dance floor was full. Everyone had a fantastic time. And the event felt like us. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Cheers!

p.s. Everyone keeps asking how you managed to pull off the BNSF train horn, perfectly timed as we were leaving the ceremony to Johnny and June singing singing “Jackson”? Now THAT is some serious audio pre-planning.

My husband and I met up with Alan and decided the same day that he was going to be the DJ for our wedding. He is such a friendly man. He worked with us to make sure he played music that we wanted.
He made tons of suggestions, which made it easy for us to make all the decisions. The day of the wedding, EVERYONE was dancing and having a blast!
People are still talking about how much fun they had at the wedding, how the music was awesome and how the dance floor was always full- which was exactly what we wanted!

A major part in our day being so fun and lively

We hired Alan to DJ our wedding. Great decision.

As I’m writing this I am on the phone with my Mother-in-Love who has spent the last 10 minutes raving about Alan and his work. We were very pleased with Alan (music and MC).

Most of all I appreciate that he comes from professional background. He handles himself in a business manner (professional-promptly answered emails, phone calls, etc), but understands that the events he DJ’s are very personal to the clients and each one has its own flavor. He was the one who helped us figure out the timing for our wedding events (grand entrance, cake cutting, etc.)

He was a major part in our day being so fun and lively (the dance floor was never empty). I have already passed on his name/number to a friend who is giving it to her friend (our wedding was just a few weeks ago).

Definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding

5+++ Stars!! Working with Alan from the Puget Sound DJ is by far one of the best decisions we made for our wedding this past weekend!

Even in the beginning of our communications, Alan was always very prompt in answering our questions or concerns (we always heard back from him within 12 hours of sending him an e-mail, most of the time even earlier than that!). When we first had our initial meeting with Alan to discuss roughly what we would like for our wedding, we knew we found the right person. Alan is very knowledgeable in not only the different types of music but also how the wedding events flow. He’s really the best with not just as a dj playing your favorite type of music but also as an mc who can make your event a memorable one (in a good way!).

On the day of our wedding, Alan even worked directly with our officiant and our venue person to make sure that our ceremony and reception went as smoothly as possible. In addition to that, he also made sure to work with our photographers so that they could help capture the moments for us with the best possible lighting.

What I love most about Alan was his genuine care about how he could make the event a memorable one for both us and our guests. Even several days before our wedding, Alan voluntarily called us to check up on the details and even offered to bring additional lights and an outdoor speaker that could help improve the ambiance. We were so thankful for his kindness. There were also soooo many aspects and details of our wedding event that, if it wasn’t because of Alan’s suggestions and perfect facilitation, the event wouldn’t have turned out as well as it did.

We HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Alan! He was definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding event and we were extremely happy with how the event turned out. Even my friend who happened to be planning a wedding elsewhere for her sister loved what Alan did and plans on incorporating the details that Alan suggested in her sister’s destination wedding. If you wanted somebody who not only plays good music but also cares about how to make your event the best that it can be, pick Puget Sound DJ! It’s hard to go wrong with someone as dedicated and detail oriented as Alan is. THANK YOU SO MUCH ONCE AGAIN ALAN! We love working with you!

“He cared about us first, which is hard to find in the wedding vendor community”

Alan and Puget Sound DJ did a fantastic job as the DJ for our rehearsal dinner and wedding in Seattle!

We had a baseball-themed wedding, which took place at Safeco Field, and Alan was the perfect fit for this event. His passion for baseball, professionalism as a highly trained DJ, and flexibility with our complicated logistical requirements, really helped to improve the quality of our event, and he was a joy to work with.

There are a lot of DJs in the Seattle area who care more about their paycheck than about their customers, and Alan was the exact opposite. He cared about us first, which is hard to find in the wedding vendor community.

We highly recommend Alan and Puget Sound DJs for your wedding DJ needs!

“Not only is he a great guy, he really made our wedding the wedding we had hoped it would be!”

Alan is AMAZING! We were planning a NYE wedding all the way from Dallas, TX. When we first reached out to him, he got back to us quickly and since we lived in Dallas at the time, he found time in the following days to call us on the phone so we could all talk in person.

Alan went above and beyond to make sure that we felt that we had all we needed from the start. He gave us tons of recommendations for vendors, was quick to respond to any questions, and really made sure our wedding was personalized to meet our needs. He made sure we had the music we wanted and even was creative enough to create fun and engaging introductions for each of the members in our wedding party!

He is personable, organized, fun, outgoing, prompt, experienced, and went above and beyond all our wishes!

He was more than just a DJ! Alan was very helpful in our planning. He was very honest about our timeline and gave advice on how to fit in everything we wanted. We didn’t hire a wedding planner and so he graciously offered to help us with our timeline and even made sure everything flowed smoothly on the night of our wedding.

Because it was NYE, we had our photographer leave around 10pm and a Photo Booth arrived to last us into the new year. Well… we all ended up on the bow of the ship (our wedding was on a ferry boat) to watch the fire works off the Space Needle at midnight and guess who was right there with a professional camera?! Alan! We are so happy we got to capture this moment. He truly is a man of all trades.

We had planned to wrap up our wedding around 1:00am. As 1:00am approached, we knew we didn’t want the party to end and Alan said he would love to stay later. We were ecstatic!

Our wedding was amazing. It was really the wedding we had dreamed about!

I cannot say enough good things about Alan! His price is way more than reasonable for his services!  He is wonderful! Hire him! Not only is he a great guy, he really made our wedding the wedding we had hoped it would be!

“He commanded attention without being overwhelming or becoming the center of attention”

Hiring Alan was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding day. We were originally going to just use an ipod for music, but I got cold feet about 6 weeks before thinking the ipod was a mistake. We ended up finding and booking Alan barely a month before and from that second on, I was so relieved.

Alan had a lot of experience and therefore a lot of knowledge of what worked and what didn’t. Alan listened to our tastes and our desires for what we wanted while simultaneously helping to guide us make good decisions about our reception program. Alan has the planning process down to a T, he asked me questions about things I hadn’t even thought of!

Using his website, my fiance and I had hours of fun picking the exact songs we wanted.

We collaborated pretty closely as the wedding approached to make sure we were on the same page for the reception. Alan was very knowledgeable and professional. Alan knew what we were going for and made it a very good experience. He had several pieces of advice from his vast experience that we took into consideration. I appreciated the input!

I felt that Alan had a good understanding of who we were and the vision of what we wanted. Alan really spent the time to get to know us, and put careful thought into how he was going to do our wedding, it wasn’t just another job for him. Even the day of, we had some unexpected events when a family member hired a surprise Mariachi band to preform for several hours without telling anyone. Alan was able to adjust our music plan on the fly and so graciously worked through that hurdle.

I loved all the personal touches he added, I never would of guessed he would of picked up some phrases in Spanish to throw out!

Music, timing, volume, was all appropriate. He played the right songs at the right times, picking up slight hints from the crowd. We had a particularly hard group to read for music tastes and he did a wonderful job adjusting on the fly.

Alan had a good understanding of our tastes, as well as a good understanding of old favorites that the crowd would like. He commanded attention without being overwhelming or becoming the center of attention. I felt that the wedding and reception went well. Alan did a good job facilitating the festivities, keeping us on track, and making sure the reception went smoothly.

Our wedding went great, if we had gone with our original plan of just an ipod, I don’t think the mood would of been near as party-like. Even things I didn’t think about like the lights made such a difference. I ended up feeling relieved being hands off the whole night, instead of worrying about someone touching the ipod or what if it stopped. I never realized how many different directions I was going to be pulled, and I thought I was going to be able to do it all. I am SO glad we went with the decision to hire a professional, and more so glad we were able to work with Alan.

Alan was amazing, I don’t think another dj would of been so patient or flexible with a hard-to-please crowd like ours. The personal touches he added to everything, made all the hours over the phone planning so worth it. I truly felt like he cared about our day and it wasn’t just another job to him.

I’d say that Alan did a good job for us and would be a good choice for anyone that needed a DJ. Alan, thanks for making our wedding reception such a success.

“The photographer, videographer, and event staff were all coordinated to be in the right place at the right time to capture our special moments”

We loved the assistance in planning both the ceremony and reception, and our special evening was better than we could have imagined. Alan did more that live up to our expectations – he surpassed them.

“Personally committed” does not come close to describing the level of service we received. In paying for DJ services, we received a wedding planner, day-of coordinator, MC, and DJ all in one. Based on multiple in-person meetings and phone calls, Alan truly took the time to tailor our perfect day, bending to our will when necessary and offering priceless advice when needed.

Absolutely everything Alan offered was not only helpful, but also delivered in such a way that conveyed sincere interest in both meeting our needs and ensuring our day was memorable and enjoyable.

Alan was well-dressed, polite and warm to all guests, and was genuine in his desire to put on a perfect evening.

Every single person at our wedding danced, and everyone was raving about the party for months after.

Of all his talents, I’d say Alan shines the most as MC (even over DJ). Folks delivering toasts were coached ahead of time. The photographer, videographer, and event staff were all coordinated to be in the right place at the right time to capture our special moments. Attendees knew when their attention was needed and where to be for all of the night’s events.

The price was right for a DJ alone. Add to that the additional level of service we got with the planning and day-of coordination, and I’d say we got away with a steal.

Alan was instrumental in ensuring our wedding was absolutely perfect. It most certainly would not have been nearly as perfect had we gone with any other DJ.  I would recommend Alan for any event, large or small.

“Alan was very professional, kind and had a great sense of humor”

Alan listened to us. Alan cared about our opinions and how we wanted our day to go. He took time to get to know us as individuals and as a couple.

Alan absolutely lived up to our expectations. We felt that Alan was very committed.

Alan was so amazing when it came to the planning process. He was very organized both with his website and when we met to discuss how the day would go. This especially appealed to me, the bride. During the planning process he was able to break everything down into 15 minutes increments for how our wedding day was going to go. This made the process a much less daunting task.

He was very professional. Equipment was in excellent working order and set up to accommodate everything we needed.

He followed all our requests, which had to have been challenging with both our different tastes in music. Chris and I were very pleased with the music choices, timing and volume.

Ultimately, we did not want a cheesy MC. Alan was definitely not cheesy.

We did not have a wedding planner or day of planner but that didn’t phase Alan. He was able to navigate the ceremony and reception with ease.

We feel we got more than what we paid for in choosing Alan to be our wedding DJ/MC.

Looking back, my husband and I have very fond memories of our wedding day. Pretty much everything went just as planned. Without Alan, our wedding day would not have gone so smoothly. He took charge when needed but then blended in the background. Alan was very professional, kind and had a great sense of humor.

The night of our rehearsal, our Officiant was not able to attend. I was about to have a heart attack. But one call to Alan from this pleading bride and he so kindly filled in, in his absence. That was such a huge relief for myself and my husband.

Alan is very accommodating, experienced and equally professional. You can definitely put your trust into Puget Sound DJ.

Alan was so helpful and easy to work with. He had every moment of the wedding planned out and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. He went above and beyond to make our day special.

“All the timing seemed perfect, everyone was very engaged and dancing”

I was hesitant to have a DJ as I am very particular about music and cheesy MCs. Alan was quick to respond and met with us in person multiple times. You could tell he wanted to make sure that he was the right fit for us. He took a lot of time to really connect with us personally and make sure he knew our exact wishes.

Alan was very attentive to our thoughts, wishes, and ideas. Although we had a few somewhat off-the-wall and extremely specific requests, he took the time to learn what we were specifically interested in and how he could match our expectations. Couldn’t have been happier with outcome.

He was connected with us, spent time preparing, seemed to be really feeling the vibe and matching our attendees’ demeanor.

Alan talked us out of some bad ideas and into some great ones. Especially with the introductions and timing of events – including the games he suggested – everything he thought of was great.

Musically, Alan seemed to stick very closely to our suggestions. He matched very specific and quirky requests with limited input from us with just what we were hoping for. The opening jazz music was especially great. (He totally deflected some rude comments from our guests and deferred to us when they wanted to play an inappropriate song from our past. Massive kudos to anyone who can shoot down our Irish family.)

As an MC, he did a great job. Rehearsed, timely, reactive, no worries.

It went great and I’m certain that Alan had a huge role in that. All the timing seemed perfect, everyone was very engaged and dancing.

I would strongly recommend him, especially to someone who is a little persnickety about music. Thank you so much for everything you put into this Alan! You made it a great day.

“He makes the vision of the day happen”

“We planned our wedding in Seattle while living in California. To cut costs we decided against having a wedding planner. Without a wedding planner, we knew that we had to make careful decisions with selecting our vendors as they would really assist us in making sure the day went smoothly.

We saw our DJ as our most important vendor. We wanted our day to be FUN and seamless. When we spoke to Alan, he listened intently to our vision of our wedding day, was witty and professional. He understood our concerns with planning a wedding from a different state and immediately eased many of our concerns. Bottom line was that we felt extremely comfortable and confident that Alan would do a great job.
Alan exceeded our expectations in every way. Our day was perfect.

Alan is a very authentic and genuine person which transcends into his professional work.. We felt as if Alan genuinely cared for us and wanted our day to be absolutely perfect!

Alan’s professionalism was top notch.
At our wedding, we had 2 year olds and 82 year olds. And we wanted EVERYONE to have a good time and that started with getting people on the dance floor. We told Alan that we wanted to get everyone our there dancing and he made it happen. We discussed our playlist ideas, but we didn’t want to micro-manage Alan. We felt comfortable with allowing Alan to read the crowd and make decisions. After all, this is his profession!

The reception was EPIC. Literally. Such a fun time and I saw every single person on the dance floor.
Alan as an MC was perfect! He is a great communicator, witty and confident! He can control a crowd. He put a lot of thought into the flow of a reception did a great job explaining things to us before the big day.

Alan was scheduled until 11pm. The night was so epic that we wanted the party to continue. We asked Alan about playing on and he said yes without hesitation! We expected that he would invoice us later, but he did it without a charge!
Alan was a KEY piece in our wedding day. The day was absolutely perfect and we had at least 20 people tell us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Absolutely perfect!

Alan is by far the best DJ I’ve ever come across. Not because he can scratch and mix, but because he makes the vision of the day happen! He takes it seriously. I would HIGHLY suggest Alan as a DJ.”

“Alan was the main reason it went as smoothly as it did”

Alan was amazing!!! We met him at a wedding expo in Everett and hit it right off.  We also were worried with other companies; we met the managers and not the actual DJ. We wanted to know who was going to be doing our wedding. Huge plus knowing Alan himself was going to be a part of it. His personality is great, can’t not smile when talking with him.

We had high expectations in our minds. When it came down to end of the night, he blew our expectations out of the water!

Everything went smoothly; he kept the day moving in a wonderful pace that didn’t rush people.

He completely made me feel like he was personally committed to making our day what we wanted!!! Between the jokes with my bridal party (which they loved, he had a sense of humor) to playing songs people requested. Even after the wedding people told us they really enjoy Alan and how the events went. **Alan played an active role in our reception** which he seemed like he was having a blast!! Alan can hold his own in a fun group.

Alan met us 5 minutes from our house to talk about our plans on a few occasions. Completely helpful! We used him as our primary source for planning! Alan was very willing to give us advice and help us with every question we threw at him. From how to layout our tents and dance floor to where we should put the bar. He helped us with the time of the wedding, made great suggestions on fun games to play to keep things light and fun. Alan did a great job reading our personalities and tailored his suggestions to what he thought we might like.

Day of the wedding he showed up early, talked for a few minutes to make sure we were all on the same page. It was wonderful not having to worry about what we are doing next and the time frame. He made sure the guest enjoyed themselves. Family and friends were really happy with what he did at the wedding, the flow and ease of the ceremony and reception to the music that was played.

Not only is he a DJ, he is an MC as well!! Great public speaker! Again he Rocked it! 5 Star for his evaluation on his MC skills!!

At first glance it will seem a little pricey. BUT, once you talk to Alan in the start of your planning, everything comes easier when he is in the picture and a part of it. Worth every cent! No surprises, no hidden fees!

My wedding went fantastic! Nothing crazy happened, no drama, no cake in my face! I was waiting for something bad to happen, so I could be bridezilla, but thank heavens it never did.
We talked to Alan beforehand to make sure we were all on the same page; on how we wanted the day to evening to go. Alan was the main reason it went as smoothly as it did!!!

He Rocked It! When it comes down to it, we wanted to have a good time and not have to worry about the time and what we were doing next. He made our job of dancing, speeches, eating, eating some more enjoyable and stress free. If you know someone who’s getting married, call him first!

Was able to use his expertise

After speaking with several DJ’s in the Seattle area over the phone and meeting a few in person, Alan by far stood out as the best and most personal DJ for our wedding.

Not only was Alan a great DJ, but he also helped in so many areas of event planning and coordination prior to our Wedding Day. His experience and commitment to further bettering himself by attending numerous DJ/Wedding conventions throughout the year definitely proved his commitment to professionalism. He was able to use his expertise to direct us towards the wedding we envisioned and beyond without making the mistakes a less experienced DJ would make or that we would have allowed due to our inexperience.

Alan constantly communicated with us, listened and incorporated his ideas into suggestions that ultimately made our wedding day event intimate, special and fun. He certainly catered to us, but better yet – he was able to adapt according to the vibe of our guests and guide their energy to match the type of reception we planned for. Several guests after the wedding complimented us on the job Alan did.

The photos we received from our photographer of different events & games Alan suggested and coordinated were outstanding and showed how involved our friends and family were during the reception all because of Alan’s master of ceremony skills.

We highly recommend Alan (Puget Sound DJ) to anyone planning for their wedding. He can cater to whatever type of wedding event you desire and truly cares about making your event the one you envisioned.
Thanks Alan!

“Had many ideas to kick start us thinking about small things that we may have forgotten otherwise”

We planned our wedding from 1500 miles away and Alan was very helpful throughout the entire process. He promptly replied to e-mails and made every effort to meet with us when we were in town.

He was committed to ensuring the night was about my wife and I, while still making sure that our family and friends had an amazing time.

Alan was knowledgeable individual not only about music, but also about how important the events of the evening were. Alan was up to date and had many ideas to kick start us thinking about small things that we may have forgotten otherwise.

His website made it abundantly clear that he was there to ensure the bride and the groom had the most memorable experience possible. The personal touch of voice-overs during our first dance demonstrated his commitment not only to his profession, but also to his clients.

He took things very personally and vested himself in the final outcome of the evening.

He did a great job and really kept things moving throughout the night.

The price was very reasonable when compared to other services we looked at. He was truthful and did not nickel and dime us for every possible light, CD, or extra.

The wedding went great. He does a great job and is committed to giving you a night to always remember.

My husband and I danced virtually all night and had a blast

I cannot recommend Alan’s services enough. He is a consummate professional who is client-centered and cares about your event’s success. I interviewed a ton of DJs, all of whom were high pressure and high priced – at times, I felt like I was dealing with car salespeople. Our experience with Alan was a very welcome departure from that experience. Prior to our booking, Alan did an extensive phone consult with me. Later, my husband and I met with Alan and knew instantly that we had found our DJ. He knows his craft and it showed in that first meeting.

In our experience, Alan goes above and beyond to make your day complete. After a major storm prevented my maid of honor from making the wedding, he worked tirelessly to come up with a solution to make her present virtually, and he was a truly comforting presence in a hectic time. I was both surprised and overjoyed to walk into my reception and see my best friend on an iPad and a projector as they tested out the technology. Later in the evening, my MoH was able to give her toast from 3,000 miles away (even if the venue’s wireless was spotty at times). Without Alan’s hard work and dedication to his clients, none of that would have been possible – I will truly remember that experience forever.

As far as the music at the wedding proper is concerned, my guests were really pleased with the music selections throughout the night. We gave him a roadmap of music we liked, and he read the room accordingly. His suggestions for what we should do throughout the night such as choosing a song to close the evening or play the Shoe Game were on-point and very well received. My husband and I danced virtually all night and had a blast.

Alan treats his clients as friends and, by extension, will certainly work hard to make your event a success. Between the rain and the missing bridal party, our event could have been a disaster. Thanks to Alan and our other vendors, it was perfect!

“His website was amazingly helpful and extensive in affording us every option of musical style.”

All the great things other couples said and the awards indicated about Alan proved to be true and then some. Alan’s easy-going and detailed style made planning easier for us and assured us that anything that came up would be handled very well.

Alan was always right there for us. We brainstormed options, he gave us the pros/cons of each and readily/enthusiastically implemented whatever we asked for.

Alan most definitely was helpful in our planning. For example, he helped us visualize what it would be like to move from cake cutting to bride’s dance with her father to the groom’s welcoming speech, etc. and to order those steps in a way that kept things fun and flowing.

Alan traveled all the way from Seattle, WA to our wedding at Ft. Knox, KY. He filled our hall with fantastic music and MC announcements that kept things fun, loving and welcoming for all. His set-up was unobtrusive, streamlined and perfectly integrated into our layout.

Sooo many of the people who attended our wedding kept coming up to us and commenting how wonderful Alan was as both a DJ and an MC. His website was amazingly helpful and extensive in affording us every option of musical style. Alan had us pick all the music we loved and then helped us shape it, (i.e.), number of songs, order, volume, timing, etc., for a fun-filled time for our guests.

Alan struck a perfect balance between keeping things flowing and focused while never sacrificing the fun, warmth and hospitality we’d worked for.

We’re most proud/pleased that young and old alike all commented heartily and repeatedly that ours was among the most warm, fun-filled and inviting weddings they’d ever attended. Alan was key to that.

Once the decorations are in place, the food is set out and the drinks are chilled and waiting … mood/tenor/tone are EVERYTHING and the DJ is the absolute lynchpin to that experience. Alan was an absolute professional who was central in making that experience the wonder that it was.
If you want a first-rate experience, then be sure to hire first-rate people. Alan Chitlik and Puget Sound DJ services epitomize what it means to be first-rate from planning to implementation. We couldn’t have been more thrilled and pleased in getting Alan for our wedding!

“…really seemed to care about what we wanted on our day ”

“We hired Alan for our DJ for our Winter wedding. Alan was very friendly and outgoing through out the entire time up to and during the wedding. Alan was the only vendor who met with us TWICE before the wedding to make sure that he knew our personalities and what we were looking for from our wedding DJ.

Alan was very good about asking what we were looking for, working out the best plan for our wedding day based on what we had in mind, and offered great suggestions when we weren’t sure on what to do. He was very personable and made our wedding feel special.

He helped come up with ideas on what to do at the reception and what timeline would work best for our wedding. His appearance, equipment, and approach were all very professional.

The day of our wedding we had a few changes and Alan was flexible and able to easily work with the change in room and change in lay out of the bridal party.

He knew our number one goal was to get our guests out on the dance floor. He did a great job playing the right music for our guests and we all danced the night away!

We thought our wedding was perfect! We had the best day and we think Alan played a crucial role in that. He played great music that kept our guests dancing all night and he really kept the evening moving along so that things never felt stale.

We would say Alan was awesome. He went above and beyond – helping with the slideshow for Jenna’s mom, really seemed to care about what we wanted on our day, and we had a great time.

It was a great day for us and Alan played a huge part in making our day perfect! We would definitely recommend Alan as a DJ for your wedding!”

“Alan was very helpful in his knowledge of making sure everything “flowed.”

We hired Alan Chitlik only about a month or so before our wedding and he pulled off our reception for us wonderfully!

He has an online site that allowed us login and select songs that were must plays, play if you can, and don’t play. We also received a login for our guests that allowed them to choose songs they wanted to hear at our wedding, which we know they loved getting to be involved in the music selection and request songs in advance so this was a great feature for us and for them! Alan had us fill out a form prior to our wedding which laid out every “moment” in detail (from our grand entrance to the garter removal and garter toss) so we could select every song that we wanted played for each and every important moment during the reception.

He was very thorough in our meetings, which made us feel confident that no detail would be missed. He made the reception have a wonderful flow to it and played every special song we had requested for special moments throughout the night.

His experience with our venue was especially helpful as he knew that guests sitting near the back of the venue would be unable to see the dance floor and therefore, it would be necessary to have them all standing near the dance floor for the first dance, father daughter dance, mother son dance, so that everyone could see. He helped pull this off so that the night still had a good flow to it and people didn’t feel like they were being shuffled around.
Details like these were things we hadn’t even thought of, so Alan was very helpful in his knowledge of making sure everything “flowed.”

We interviewed several other DJ’s before Alan and most were either not as professional or knowledgeable and also less expensive or had similar philosophies to Alan and portrayed a similar confidence and professionalism, but were 3 times as expensive. Alan was the right price for our budget and gained our confidence quickly and certainly carried through with that and didn’t let us down on our wedding day. He was very easy to work with and we would definitely recommend him!

Everything went seamlessly

Alan DJ’d our wedding, and the experience working with him was absolutely wonderful. First, we met him at a local wedding show, and while all of the other DJs were loud, obnoxious, and had the “used car salesman” vibe, Alan was the complete opposite. He wasn’t pushy, he was just honest about what he could do.

Leading up to the wedding, we worked with us to get the venue setup planned, the timeline details set, and the playlist. He asked us questions that we never even thought about, and he was full of wisdom and experience. I ran out of time to give him a list of songs, so I had about 2 songs on my “play” list and about 4-5 on my “do not play” list. Between that and our conversation, he had enough to create a full playlist for our wedding that kept people coming back to the dance floor for hours.

During the wedding itself, nothing particularly stood out, and that’s a GOOD thing. Usually, if a wedding is extra memorable, it’s because something awful just happened. Since everything went seamlessly from the ceremony until we left at the end of the night, and that’s a huge credit to Alan.

His understated personality, ability to control the flow of the event, and enthusiasm for helping out wherever he could definitely gave him an A+ in our book.

“My husband and I could just sit back and relax at our wedding”

We originally were drawn to Alan because of his up-front costs. We spoke to a few DJ’s who had a lot of ‘small print’ and hidden costs. When we contacted Alan we were pleased with how he answered all our questions and would meet us in convenient locations just to chat, even if it meant him putting in an hours drive!

Alan exceeded expectations! Even though we were getting last minute details to him the night before the wedding, Alan made sure everything ran smoothly. He advised people prior to their speeches and entrances. He worked well with our planner and he made sure everything ran smoothly!

We definitely felt like he was personally committed. Alan was really flexible with meetings, he would drive an hour just so me and Eric could meet him just up the road. He remembered details about our wedding off the top of his head, when even we weren’t sure.

Alan had plenty of advice and tips we hadn’t even thought about: Grand entrances, prayers, speeches, where we should direct guests for dinner etc.
Alan looked great! We love his formal attire, weddings are a big deal and one should dress as so!

Musically, he made appropriate choices. We spoke about what we wanted and didn’t want. Volume was great, especially since our venue was pretty strict on volume.
Professional and likeable! Alan is not one of those DJ’s who thinks he’s ‘too cool for school.’

He was amazing on the day. Everybody loved Alan. He was giving advice to everyone on the day. My dad was nervous about giving a speech, so he gave him a pep talk.

Along with our wedding planner, he pretty much ran the show. My husband and I could just sit back and relax at our wedding.  We would highly recommend him.

Alan has amazing energy and attitude.

We really appreciated his attention to detail and the way he took such care to get to know us as a couple. Alan asked great questions to get us thinking about what our “vision” was.

He also was so willing to work with any request we had, even when we decided to do a song mix-up for our first dance.

“Went way above & beyond to make sure we were happy with all our decisions, even the tiniest details”

“At our first meeting with Alan we were impressed with his knowledge of what it takes to organize a successful wedding reception.
He expressed a real interest in getting to know us to help create the reception of our dreams. We liked the fact that Alan’s goal is to create a memorable experience for the couple, not just play music. As a DJ of an event, Alan told us up front that he sees his role as master of ceremony in addition to being the DJ. This would make a smooth transition throughout the evening, which is exactly what we were hoping for on our big day.

Alan worked with us to select the songs being played at the ceremony and reception. He helped guide us through the process to choose songs that represent us as a couple. Opposite of many DJs that give you very limited prep time, Alan met with us as often as needed to plan pretty much the entire day. Alan went way above & beyond to make sure we were happy with all our decisions, even the tiniest details.

We felt Alan was personally committed to making our day as close to perfect as possible. He is sincerely interested in getting to know not only the couple, but also all the family and wedding party. You can tell that Alan loves what he does, so puts in his full effort into every wedding.

He will give you as much of his time as you need to plan your wedding and reception. Alan is also willing to personalize any songs that you’re looking for. For us, he created a compilation of songs for our first dance.
Based on his knowledge & experience, he was able to give us advice on our timeline and helped us prioritize to create a good flow of events for the big day.

Alan’s professionalism was superb. He had an organized setup with two sets of equipment (one for the ceremony and one for the reception). Our wedding was outdoors, so audio can sometimes be a little tricky, but Alan made sure every guest could hear all audio clearly and at the perfect volume. He especially looked great in his black tux…a nice touch. His energy was outstanding and he read the crowd well.

Alan knows more songs than anyone we’ve met. He knows songs from the past and current songs that are perfect for weddings and receptions. For us, we wanted a reception where we danced A LOT. Alan was able to fulfill our request! Our guests really enjoyed dancing and sang Alan’s praises. The lighting was fun and it was a great touch. Alan played every song that we were hoping for! The energy was up the entire night which we know is tough to do with a wide age range, so a big thank you to Alan!

Professional, energetic, caring. With so many things going on at a wedding and ceremony, Alan was terrific at keeping to the timeline. For us, we had an officiant, photographers, family, and friends all looking for our attention, so it was wonderful to have Alan there to guide and keep us on track for a successful evening.

If you’re looking a dedicated, enthusiastic, and caring MC/DJ for your event, Alan should be your #1 choice. You will get all the preparation time you need with Alan. As for the event itself, Alan will do all he can to make it as special as possible. Alan rocks!”

“Having Alan DJ and MC our big day was the best decision that we made when planning our wedding”

I used to work in the wedding industry in Seattle so I can properly guarantee that you will not find a more valuable DJ than Alan Chitlik of Puget Sound DJ.
Not only does his website offer a tremendous amount of helpful checklists, but his wealth of knowledge in his profession is unmatched by any DJ in the Seattle area. The importance of a DJ goes far beyond picking the right music for your day, it is also about setting a terrific flow between planned activities: from ceremony, cake-cutting, garter tosses, etc; establishing relationships with your guests; providing the right equipment and sound for your space; and creating a trusted relationship with the one person who you have assigned to get create the atmosphere that everyone can enjoy.

Alan graciously provided us with a pre-wedding planning session where he not only ran through the details of what songs to play when and what we expected from him to keep the party flowing, but he also helped us fill in some of holes that were left in our plan after deciding to forgo a planner. He is professional, kind, attentive, flexible and comes with all of his own stereo and mic equipment, and is hands down the best value for a memorable and fun experience!

I cannot express enough how incredibly fortunate I was to snag Alan for our big day. THANK YOU ALAN for the PERFECT day!

“He is the 1 vendor I have to thank for making it all happen ”

Alan is a class act!!

I have always considered my dream wedding to be the GLEE Musical story of my life. Al had all the right music to fulfill this dream.

His consultation was an amazing experience because he thought of things like traditions, rituals, ways to keep your guests entertained, things I had no idea about.

He not only plays music for your ceremony and reception, but he is the MC and he’s engaging with your guests and he keeps the trains on track. He helped orchestrate my rehearsal, he has top of the line equipment, and everyone enjoyed the atmosphere that he created not only for our guests but for the beautiful memories that I will always have.

Alan worked extra hard to make sure that my day went as planned and that I got everything and more out of my day that I had planned. I look back at our wedding day and between Alan working with the staff at our venue, my coordinator, to being the voice and delivery of our day – not one thing went sideways and he is the 1 vendor I have to thank for making it all happen!!”

“Alan was amazing to work with! Every meeting was full of laughs because he is such an easy person to get along with!

I truly felt like he was there to make our day OURS and not anyone else’s! He got a feel for us as a couple and built on it to make our night absolutely one for the books!

He far exceeded our expectations. With us not knowing how to go about this whole wedding thing, he was there for us the entire wedding planning process. He kept us on track. Little did we know how important it is to have a good dj/mc to plan your big day!

We were on the phone the night before the wedding to finalize some of the song choices and even in the morning of the wedding when I changed my mind about a few things, he was totally cool with it!

I threw out lots of different artists and he was so familiar with them all. And when I was so exhausted with making decisions I told him and he helped fill in the blanks that fit US!

If you are looking for a cheesy mc, Alan is not that! I have been to so many weddings where the mc/dj was so obnoxious that it totally ruined the wedding. Alan was great, not too much and not too little! He kept the whole night rolling!

I felt like we got so much for the money we spent and when it comes to weddings how often do you hear that?

“We were able to enjoy our event, thanks to Alan’s preparation and experience”

“Alan seemed very personable and interested in getting to know us so he could tailor the entertainment and experience to our likes, dislikes, and intended mood.

Rather than worrying about the flow and arrangement/timeline of our wedding we were able to enjoy our event, thanks to Alan’s preparation and experience.

We felt that Alan was committed to a making this a personal experience for us and our family and friends. We met a few times before the wedding and he was aware of all the details that needed to be figured out for everything that was planned. He let us decide all that we wanted to and was willing and confident to make decisions where when left him the “reigns.”

Helpful is an understatement in Alan’s involvement. Without the experience that Alan had brought into the planning and preparation, our wedding would not have went 1/2 as well as it had. We used several of his proposals and ideas. He was also able to give advice on both pros and cons to help us improve on the ideas for our wedding.

Alan appeared professional, maintained a very behind the scenes approach (such as giving tips to those who gave toasts, ensuring that the photographer and caterer where aware of the schedule of events, and people were where they needed to be). He guided when he needed to and was able to roll with unexpected changes.

Musically we were very open to whatever the crowd/mood called for. He worked in all of our recommendations while finding what the guests enjoyed. He was aware of the the music we planned prior to the event and worked those in as requested and recommended, while adding additional music when needed.

Alan was fantastic as an MC. We have been to a wedding with no direction prior and knew that Alan would be able to direct when needed. This was a BIG thing for us. He did a fantastic job at moving things along and making sure that different events went in the correct order and when needed.

We would highly recommend Alan for any event and advice any of his suggestions and advice.

“I attribute much of the success of our wedding to Alan’s thoroughness and composure”

It was very apparent from the first time I spoke with Alan that he was very professional and truly wanted what was best for us in terms of fit. He was not over aggressive in trying to get us to choose him and was very straightforward in explaining what his role would be in the wedding and reception.

At the end of the day, the reason we chose Alan was his personality and charisma; I knew he would cater to our diverse group well.

Alan took the time to learn as much about us, our families, and our friends as he could, which I quite frankly didn’t expect but certainly appreciated. He was diligent in making sure we got what we wanted, and went above and beyond to meet our requests. Definitely a sincere person, and very committed to his craft.
It amazed me how dedicated he was to doing his job well.

One of the toughest things about planning our wedding was that we were doing the majority of it long distance. Needless to say, this added an extra level of anxiety to the process. Alan was very helpful in making personal recommendations and helped us find an amazing photographer.

Alan worked very hard right up to the wedding itself, collaborating with all of the other service providers to make sure they were all on the same page and things would go smoothly.

His professionalism was exceptional. I believe Alan’s experience gives him the confidence to approach weddings in a calm and collected manner. He is able to think on his feet and adjust very well which comes in handy when issues arise such as the caterer serving dinner late… He kept the energy very pleasant and was a great facilitator.

He had some great ideas in terms of microphone and speaker placement and the audio quality was excellent, we had several people comment on how good of a job Alan did in that department, and yes he looked good doing it.

Alan had a vast library of music to choose from and did not seem the least bit bothered by us requesting a fair number of songs that he didn’t have on hand. As the wedding neared and stress levels ran high, Alan did a great job of helping us make music selections for all of the different mini-events that sum to make a wedding. He catered very well to guest requests, and definitely used good judgment in choosing dancing music, etc.

He was very flexible in his approach and at the end of the day, I attribute much of the success of our wedding to Alan’s thoroughness and composure.

My wife and I went back and forth about live music vs a dj for a little while before we decided that a dj was more in our price range. That being said and money aside, the job that Alan did not only as a dj, but as a facilitator in general made me extremely happy that we took the route we did.

Everything flowed seamlessly and that is because of Alan’s dedication to providing an excellent service. When your wedding day comes, you want to be able to just sit back and take in the moment, and that is what choosing Alan Chitlik allowed us to do. He worked behind the scenes with everybody to make sure everything was moving at the right pace and read the crowd flawlessly.

He has my highest recommendation, without hesitation.

“He mixed the types of songs really well so everyone had fun.”

“Alan was fantastic!! He worked with us through the entire process, made suggestions when we needed guidance, and got to know us as a couple so the music fit us and our wedding like a glove.

Alan is flexible and took the time to get to know us as a couple. He is very knowledgable and offers great guidance.

Alan was fully commited to making our day exactly as we wanted – he offered guidance when we were unsure and gave us choices to make our day our own. There was nothing pre-set, we discussed the entire day and flow to match who we are.

All his advice and help was great and never overbearing. We appreciated all he had to offer with his knowledge and expertise.

Very professional, he asked a lot of questions to make sure he fit the formality of our event and made everyone feel comfortable. He was very punctual and came prepared for the different set ups (indoor and outdoor).

Alan made the whole day fun! The music choices were spot on. We tried to give his as much information as we could about the type of music we liked and how we wanted to day to flow, and he matched it perfectly! The music was never too loud and he mixed the types of songs really well so everyone had fun.

As an MC, he was great! He knew who everyone was and had fun with it. He was never overbearing and he kept things short and sweet to make the day about us.

Alan is wonderful! We only have the best things to say about him and recommend him to everyone interested!

Thank you for making our wedding perfect!!”

I loved Alan from the minute I met him.

He was passionate about making our wedding perfect and didn’t stop working toward that until the very end.

He met with us several times to make sure we had every detail down and really got to know us as a couple so that he could personalize our reception as much as possible.

Alan also sent us a book to help with planning our reception and we got so many compliments as a result.

Alan was fantastic and with his set pricing you didn’t have to pay for any of the extras.

“Alan’s execution of the plan we created together was flawless”

Alan was highly recommended to us, and after we met with him, we were sold! Alan was full of great advice and ideas about how to create the mood we wanted for our wedding day through overall timeline and flow, music choices, and special touches. His experience and knowledge of what works at weddings and what doesn’t really helped us nail down what we truly wanted for our day.

Alan exceeded our exceptions not only as our DJ, but as our Master of Ceremonies. He did an excellent job reading the crowd and tone of the evening, and adjusting as needed throughout the evening. Alan’s execution of the plan we created together was flawless and I could not have asked for anything more! Our guests loved our music choices and overall flow of the reception, and the dance floor never died down!

Alan was very personally committed to making our day special for US. He called to check in the day before the wedding, he met with us multiple times to ensure that we were feeling ready for our big day, and provided us with honest answers and opinions to our many questions.

Alan played a HUGE role in helping us plan our timeline for the evening from ceremony to cocktail hour to cake cutting, dances, and toasts. His ideas for the flow of events were AMAZING. His intuition when it comes to reading the crowd is impeccable, and if a plan we had made in advance needed to be changed, he was able to come to us, tell us his thoughts, and make the change seamlessly.

The music was awesome, and our dance floor was packed from start to finish!

Alan did a great job as an MC, he exceeded our expectations.

I would highly recommend Alan, and I would recommend that you take full advantage of his expertise, and meet with his as one of the first vendors so that you can have him help with the timeline of the evening.”

“…having a professional to get honest advice from was priceless!”

First and foremost, I noticed that Alan really LISTENED to what we wanted in a DJ, our tastes in music, the style of reception, etc. We met him at a wedding show, and he stood out immediately from the other DJs we had spoken with who only seemed interested in talking about themselves! He clearly genuinely cared about making our day the best it could be!

We were very impressed with how he went out of his way to contact our other vendors and collaborate with them so that everyone was on the same page. Our reception went so smoothly – we didn’t feel the need to be managing the evening because Alan was doing much of it for us! Above and beyond what we expected from a DJ.

Definitely not just another gig for Alan, seeing as he took the time to visit our venue beforehand with us and do a full walk-around to plan everything. We never once felt like we were just another event for him. He was very thorough in asking us anything and everything about ourselves and what we wanted so that he could truly personalize his services.

We feel that our wedding went more smoothly having Alan involved. He gave some great advice (without being pushy) about what types of songs to play and when, and we especially appreciated hearing his thoughts on the order of events during the reception, which we really had no clue about. You can read all the wedding planning books, but having a professional to get honest advice from was priceless!

We appreciated that he did everything possible so that his setup and equipment blended in to the decor of the reception. He clearly wasn’t in it for the “exposure”, which we appreciated. Our families commented later on his professionalism and very pleasant demeanor. The sound quality was wonderful, despite our location being a challenge to equip.

We were very pleased with his music choices, as well as how he incorporated the songs we wanted. We were most concerned with the ceremony music, since it seemed to us to be pretty complicated (with all the pre-ceremony music, different selections for entrances, plus exit and post-ceremony), but it went flawlessly! Also, he noticed that toward the end of the evening, the songs getting everyone riled up were rock classics, so he just kept playing them till everyone dropped! Perfect!

We’d absolutely recommend him! If you’re looking for a DJ/MC who will make your event classy, fun, and tailored to YOU, meet with Alan and you won’t be disappointed!

He made the night seamless for our guests

Wedding in 4 weeks? No DJ selected because you’ve procrastinated? No music available on your laptop because you’ve switched laptops and all your favorite songs are not there? Want your guests to have a blast with great music and no stress for you?

Choose Puget Sound DJ! Alan is awesome and saved the day for us!!

Below is a detailed review that my hubby and I wrote for Alan:

“Alan was highly recommended from our photographer, Lucas Mobley. We needed someone who would come in a do a great job and do most of the heavy lifting in terms of song selection and setup, etc. We first met with Alan and instantly got along. He’s very easy going and listens closely to what matters to us. He was able to work independently and give suggestions along the way. Also his DJ style was such that he wants to keep the flow of the party and listen and adjust to things as they happen. He told us this when we met him but it wasn’t till the actual event where we actually came to appreciate this.

Everything that he promised us (setting up, having a mic, lights, song selections, queuing, introductions) happened without us knowing. Once the plan was in place (which he created about 95% of the way, the few details from us were needed) he executed it flawlessly such that we had one less thing to worry about on our big day.

He most certainly was committed. The week before he consulted with us a second time to find out exactly what songs we wanted for the key parts. We had enough control in the areas we wanted control. In the areas that we had no preference, he filled in the gaps to make the night completely seamless. Also, the great part about Alan is that he doesn’t nickel and dime you for every extra piece. He charges a flat rate which means he’s there from start to finish without any question about extra money or time. He’s there for you and committed to the event.

He knows the basic elements of an American, Jewish, and Asian wedding. This is not an easy task. He was able to suggest certain things that we might want to do in the night like mother/son dance, bouquet toss, cake cutting, introductions, etc, etc. We really had no idea of how we wanted the night to flow and Alan came in and suggested different parts, the ordering of each, and really became the glue for everything to fit together.

The comparison I have is that, we went to a wedding a few months after ours. One song was playing and everyone was up and dancing. The very next song was this old crusty old song that made everyone stop moving, even the 88 year old grandpa! THIS WAS NOT ALAN.

Alan in contrast was professional in the sense that he has the experience to know how to monitor the guests and keep the sound moving in a way that keeps people flowing. On the equipment side, he has his own sound system, mixer, laptop, mic, etc and it was of great quality. The people in the back had no problems hearing. Alan came dressed in a suit and bow tie and acted professionally the entire time. After questioning us and finding out our interests, he was able to find the music that we enjoyed and that fit with our personality. Timing and volume were great.

As an MC, he stayed out of the way for as much as possible since, according to him, each time the MC speaks it’s an interruption to the party. So he treated that responsibility with great respect and only spoke when necessary. He also did intros for the wedding party. His delivery was spot on and made the commentary very enjoyable to listen to.

HIRE HIM! The amount of work he put in for us in such a short time was phenomenal. And the fact that he made the night seamless for our guests is something we could never have done without him.”

Alan is absolutely phenomenal at what he does!

He is absolutely in love with his career and will do whatever he can to help his customers. He was involved in every inch of our wedding planning and checking in very often-such a FRIEND.

He offered books and material to help ease our planning and offered to help where he could. We had a lot of meetings where we all met at my parent’s house.

He was very concerned about meeting the needs of every one of my family members, and of course the needs of me and my husband.

Alan went above and beyond before, and at our event. He made connections with my family and had great experience and advice. He’s just a very talented-great guy! Went out of his way to make my day what I wanted!

He was very personally invested throughout the entire process.

He really cared about what WE wanted, and worked hard to personalize our event.

He met with us 2 separate times, driving from Seattle to Bothell both times. He did/brought everything he promised, and was a great MC the night of. He responded to emails/calls/texts in a timely manner, and always answered all out questions.

He was very helpful w/ time lines, song choices, and he knew it was important that we had A LOT of dancing, and we definitely did!

His song list is HUGE. He had some recommendations, and was not afraid to give us his opinion, but always went with what WE wanted first and foremost.

He dressed nice the night of our wedding, and his equipment was great. The venue turned out to have pretty bad acoustics, but he worked with it and did a great job.

I would recommend him any time.

“The prep that took place before the wedding allowed us to relax and be confident”

Alan provides a personal touch that was missing with other DJ’s. Being that he has been a part of way more weddings than we, he made sure that we had thought through every moment of our big day. It was more than just providing music; it was about making memories.

He delivered both himself and his services in a less than cheesy manner that we both really appreciated. He was extremely professional throughout the whole process, helping us to be confident in our decision.

He was dedicated to making sure that all events of our wedding were memorable for us and our guests. Definitely not just another gig for Alan.

There were so many tools to help make sure that the music that was played was exactly what we wanted and when we wanted it. The prep that took place before the wedding allowed us to relax and be confident the music would flow naturally.

There really wasn’t too much time to MC, but I appreciate the words that were said. For us, it was less about MC-ing and more about playing the right music at the right time…so that the dancing never stopped. Which it didn’t!

Alan is more than just stationary DJ. If you are looking for someone who will be actively involved in both the planning process and the reception itself, then he is your guy.

I would recommend Alan to any of my friends.”

“Coordinated with all the other vendors to make sure they were in line with the timeline”

Alan went above and beyond the duties of a DJ.

He met with us several times over the wedding planning process to help us with putting together a detailed timeline, finalizing the timeline, helped with all the little details that couples might not think about (even items outside of just music and MCing), and even provided vendor recommendations when we asked.

Whatever problems or issues came up, Alan wanted to hear about them and help in any way that he could.

During the wedding, he showed up looking very professional and he made sure we kept up with our timeline. He knew how to read the crowd and play what people wanted to hear. He made sure that he checked in with us throughout the night, but at the same time, he dealt with any problems that arose instead of bothering us.

Alan also coordinated with all the other vendors to make sure they were in line with the timeline as well.

If you are looking for a DJ that does more than just plug in his iPod, Alan is your guy…definitely worth every penny.”

“He’s not just a DJ he’s also a “Day Of” wedding planner!”

Alan was one our best decisions for our wedding celebration! When I was first approached by Alan at a wedding show in Tacoma, he also met my sisters and mom. He gave a few examples of what he could do to make our wedding memorable and personable. He also said he could do the whole event, wedding and reception from beginning to end for one reasonable price. When my husband and I first met Alan together, we knew we would have the right music to go with our celebration and some awesome tools to pick out every song that we wanted without difficulty.

Alan was a life saver! He kept the day going! He’s not just a DJ he’s also a “Day Of” wedding planner! He kept us on cue at the wedding and the timeline of the reception moving along, even though the buffet servers were slow to get the food out.

At the reception the music we wanted was played, both at cocktails and meal time and dancing. Alan was at our event until we left in the limo, he doesn’t add on charges, he got one price for the whole thing, making things easy!

We knew we could definitely trust Alan with our celebration. He was so personable and professional, he takes his job seriously, it’s not just a side job for him. You know he wants to make his clients happy in any way he can. During the planning process he “friended” on facebook, so we were able to see updates on the weddings he did, the shows he attended and the conferences, I never realized there were so many conferences for DJ’s, he goes to a lot of them! So you know he very knowledgable with the latest and greatest techniques and technology.

He somehow knew who my family members were, who to go to if he had questions so he wouldn’t have to bother us, my family loved that. People LOVED the music we chose and he played for us.

We were able to pick music from a large selection on his website and add ones that we wanted that he didn’t have. Alan gave us advice on music for the ceremony and reception, kind of staying within genres at times, but we didn’t have to take it if we didn’t want to.

Alan rocked it! He immediately made us trust him because he is so personable and professional, and trust goes a long way! Before the wedding, my dad came into the room and asked me, “Who is the guy I don’t recognize in the tux?” I said “That’s got to be Alan our DJ!” so you know he dresses nice too! A wedding I went to 3 weeks after mine, the DJ wore ripped jeans with crystals glued to them, an untucked button down shirt, with only 3 buttons buttoned and a gangster hat – clearly not the look I wanted at my wedding.

Alan was Master of Ceremonies at our reception, but he wasn’t the center of our event. He set up his station to the side of the dance floor, not on the stage (I don’t think he likes stages) He wasn’t loud and boisterous like some DJ’s like to be. During and after our wedding, we received many compliments directed towards Alan and what a wonderful job he did at our wedding.

The biggest compliment I will give Alan is that we will recommend him to all our friends that ever need a DJ. My husband talked about having another party just so we can hire him again for some great dancing!

“Helped us make decisions that reflected our personalities”

He was very personally invested throughout the entire process.

Alan helped make our day everything we wanted, and it was obvious he really cared about making everything go as smoothly as possible.

As a couple who have attended very few other weddings, we were really unsure about the typical events and schedule of weddings. Alan helped us think about what things we wanted to include in our day, and helped us make decisions that reflected our personalities.

Alan was very professional before, during, and after the wedding.

I had a list of specific songs I wanted played at the wedding, both the ceremony and reception. Alan was able to make judgments, based on this list, of other songs to play that would go well with our style. He was able to play the songs I wanted in such a way that they flowed through the evening, even though the list I had contained very different styles of music, including classic rock, bluegrass, alternative, and reggae among others.

Alan was a great MC, he made announcements professionally and clearly when needed. He never talked just to hear himself talk, and never heckled or embarrassed anyone, which I have witnessed before from another MC at a wedding.

My best friend is engaged, and I am highly recommending Alan to her!

“Bends over backwards to give a client exactly what they’re after”

Alan went above and beyond to make our wishes come true on the evening. He met with us beforehand numerous times to ensure everything was perfect on the day. I still have guests to this day who rave about Alan and how funny and personable he was on the night. When guests were nervous about their toasts coming up, his demeanor and humor in the moment put them at total ease. He made the evening flow perfectly.

Alan completely helped in the planning. We didn’t even know where to begin in terms of a time frame, and he guided us perfectly. We were grateful to have his knowledge and experience to guide us through. He even helped us with logistics in setting up for the ceremony, dining and dancing and how best it would flow.

He has state of the art equipment and extra perks on hand for light shows and stars to give the mood an extra splash of magic.

Alan read the crowd perfectly and made excellent choices in music for us. He also listened to our music wishes intently and implemented songs and styles of music that were important to us. It was very important to Alan that we were happy with the music played. He spent a good deal of time and energy putting together our individual playlists
for the evening.

Brilliant MC! Alan was just perfect! Several guests commented how great he was in that he was never obtrusive, he never took over attention, just easily and seamlessly moved things along. He was there, but not there, subtlety guiding the event with humor and dignity in the best possible way.

Alan has a great energy and charisma about him. He puts people at ease, has a wonderful sense of humor and bends over backwards to give a client exactly what they’re after. We would never look elsewhere when it came to hiring a DJ. Our guests still talk about Alan to this day, he left such a wonderful impression on everyone.

Alan has DJ’d for us a couple of times now, and will continue to in the future. He dresses the part whatever is called for. For our wedding, he donned a very classic tux and bow tie, for our Elvis themed surprise birthday party, he took it upon himself to rent a full Elvis costume wig and all! We couldn’t believe the enthusiasm and pleasure he took in DJing our special evenings.

“He genuinely was excited about my wedding, getting to know both Brendan and I, and helping to keep us calm when things became stressful.”

I spent a lot of time on different websites reading about different DJ’s and the qualities that made them unique. When I arrived at Alan’s page I loved how committed he was to music. This isn’t something he does to pay the bills, Alan is a DJ because he loves music, people, and weddings!

I lived about 2 hours from Alan and he was very willing to drive to meet me in my home town. While we talked, it became very clear that he was willing accommodate all my requests, especially my most important expectation that the music be appropriate for kids and my grandparents.

Alan not only met our expectations, but he became a critical part of making our wedding day a success!

We had a couple of minor setbacks only days before the wedding and Alan wasn’t annoyed at all when it took me longer than it should to send in my music request sheets. In fact, he was more concerned with my mental health and whether or not I was feeling happy. He helped us track down equipment so that one of my bridesmaids could play the piano and sing for our first dance. His music choices were both fun and appropriate. We had people dancing and laughing all night! In fact we even stayed passed the time we were planning on leaving, we were just having so much fun!

Alan spent a lot of time on the phone with me talking about our music and always emailed me back in a timely manner. Alan is so happy and excited! He genuinely was excited about my wedding, getting to know both Brendan and I, and helping to keep us calm when things became stressful. I felt that he respected my parents, my wedding party, and my other vendors. It was very apparent that Alan was working hard to make our wedding day a success. At one point in the reception Alan even came over to me at my head table with two huge plates of food and simply said “eat!” He noticed that I had been so busy talking to guests and friends that I hadn’t eaten anything yet! But that’s just Alan! He cares about his brides both as customers and as friends!

Alan kept things flowing. I had no idea how to best place the first dance, cake cutting, toasts, etc. but Alan had great suggestions and helped me plan out everything. We had a surprise for my brother because it was his birthday as well and he helped organize everything between the vendors so that our surprise was as success!

I would recommend Alan 100%. I simply couldn’t have asked for a better DJ. Not only was his performance on the day perfect, but his desire to help in other areas was wonderful too; he demonstrated a true knowledge of this business. Since the ceremony we have kept in contact a few times, which only again emphasizes his commitment to his customers, Alan genuinely cares about his clients.”

Alan Chitlik from Puget Sound DJ performed the DJ services at our wedding at Sodo Park and was great to work with in so many ways.

He offered a generous amount of consultation time before the wedding day to go over logistics, planning and our preferred songs. He was extremely helpful and patient (as we had many questions when it came to the entire process).

Not only was Alan fully prepared with his equipment and an extensive library of music from all genres, he was wonderful on the microphone. Never drawing attention to himself or being obnoxious as I’ve seen other DJ’s do, he kept the festivities on track and made nice, upbeat announcements as necessary to move things along.

We met more than once prior to our wedding to talk through every aspect from the music during the ceremony, to walking out as a new couple, to the cocktail hour, 1st dances and then a strategy for the open dance floor.

He took into account the type of crowd we were expecting and made recommendations about what type of music typically draws out the crowd. What I probably liked best was that he respected my wishes as the bride and honored my list of songs that I really wanted played and songs that I did NOT want played.

Thanks, Alan for making it so special for us.

“Knew how to read the crowd and play the right songs”

Alan was the best DJ ever!

Unlike a lot of DJs I’ve witnessed at weddings, he actually listened to the playlist we wanted and played the songs!

He also knew how to read the crowd and play the right songs to get the party going.

His music was so inspiring that the dancing even turned into a dance circle complete with breakdancing.

I highly recommend him to anyone planning a wedding. Thanks again!

“He’s professional, knows his craft, and is fun to work with”

Alan did a great job making sure our wedding music went off without a hitch. He’s really got the wedding celebration itself down to a science and knows which kinds of music will elicit the desired result. Alan has the expertise to make the event a success.

If you envision lots of dancing, laughter, good times and happy memories on your wedding day, Alan of Puget Sound DJ would be one of the essential ingredients I would recommend. He’s
professional, knows his craft, and is fun to work with.

“Truly a calming presence to an exciting (and busy) day”

Alan was GREAT!

The preparation was very low key and he knew exactly what to play to follow the mood of evening.

Music was a really important part of our wedding experience and Alan did a fantastic job playing just the right song at the right time.

He was flexible with requests and had absolutely everything anyone wanted to hear – truly a calming presence to an exciting (and busy) day!”

“Many of our friends said it was the most fun reception they had ever been to”

We were so pleased to have you DJ our wedding. Many of our friends said it was the most fun reception they had ever been to and I attribute that to your fun personality and song choices! People danced and danced! I’m so glad you were part of our special day.

Alan was awesome at our wedding! We had people of all ages and music interests and somehow Alan was able to get everyone up and dancing using his insane music collection and personality.

“He took the time to understand what we liked”

Our guests had a great time at our wedding and a lot of that had to do with Alan, he had so many people dancing the floor couldn’t accommodate them all!

We really appreciated his encyclopedic music knowledge…he wasn’t just relying on some online playlists, he took the time to understand what we liked and also made a bunch of great choices that we wouldn’t have ever thought of.”
