    Amazing service

    Mark was nothing but amazing to work with. He worked with us to personalize our service and he was amazingly flexible when we needed to reschedule and adapt our plans due to COVID. I would absolutely recommend him.

    Mark is First Class! Highly Recommend!

    Our experience with Soundsations was second to none. From the very first conversation I had with Mark, I could immediately tell that he cares deeply for his clients. His attention to detail was something we loved. He went above and beyond for us, and we couldn't be happier! Some couples from our reception were so impressed, that they asked us for contact information for Soundsations!

    You won't regret working with Soundsations! I would use them 100 time over!

    Flexibility during Covid-19

    I haven't actually had my wedding yet, but have rated them 5 out of 5 for all areas even though I haven't been able to judge on value and quality of service. Based on their flexibility and responsiveness during these uncertain times, I feel confident they will be amazing and am grateful for the flexibility they have allowed us in securing a backup date if our wedding gets postponed this year.

    DJ Mark for the win

    We hired Mark at Soundsations for our wedding. He went above and beyond. Catering to every age group. Our dance floor was always packed from the moment it started until the moment it ended.
    Mark was very attentive and wanted to fully understand my husband and I to make sure he could deliver the best service possible. He succeeded.
    Don’t think twice- hire Mark. He will not disappoint.

    Exceeded Expectations! Highly Recommend!

    Mark was the DJ at our wedding on May 19th. We cannot recommend him enough! He was always professional and timely with his responses and on the day of he even wore a suit. In addition, he managed to get all age groups dancing and flawlessly incorporated Western, Persian and Kurdish music into our event! He always asked for clarification, was more than willing to play with different genres of music, respectful of cultural songs and was extremely perceptive - able to read the audience and use discretion for music requests. We got so many compliments! Music is one of the most stressful parts of planning a wedding and we were so comfortable and able to trust Mark + Soundsations completely! Would highly recommend this vendor! Cannot thank you enough, Mark!

    Well planned, well executed, exceeded expectations

    Our planning meeting was very professional and we immediately knew we were dealing with someone who has done a lot of weddings and parties and someone who has a vast knowledge of Ottawa venues and strengths and challenges associated with them. The music selection process was super easy and we were really happy with what we came up with. The event went super smooth. The music really made a difference and it really became crystal clear to us why you should hire a DJ. Our DJ read the crowd perfectly and was able to match the crowds energy and to occasionally draw a little more out of people. It was a very good experience, I highly recommend Soundsations.

    We decided to go with SOUNDSATIONS after obtaining quotes from a few different DJ's because they were the most flexible and budget friendly from the get-go. Mark was amazing to work with and would consistently suggest ways in which I could improve my venue (the lighting wasn't great) while not going overboard on costs. In addition, all of our friends raved about our music - as evidenced by the fact that our dance floor was packed from 7:45 - 12:45 straight. I would HIGHLY recommend SOUNDSATIONS and Mark in particular to anyone looking for a wedding DJ.

    Mark was amazing! If he didn't know a band we suggested songs from he made sure to look them up and add them to his library for us. We received compliments about our great choice in DJ and would definitely recommend Mark and SOUNDSATIONS

    Wowed the whole party.

    From the beginnig of our wedding planning Mark came highly recommended. The months leading up to our wedding he was very involved in our musical choices, having meetings with us to ensure everything went perfectly. His song recommendations for our ceremony went so well with the specific songs we had chosen ourselves. During the reception Mark had this special power to know exactly what to play next.
    He had such a great feel of how to read the room and kept the dance floor full almost all night.
