    We are more than willing to allow Dave to provide our contact information as a reference as there is not a rating system out there that is sufficient enough to quantify how good Dave Hastings at Sound Solutions is. If you want to have a wedding night to remember for all the right reasons, Dave Hastings is an outright must.

    We planned a wedding in Sudbury, ON from across the country which is very difficult in itself. Dave took the time to meet us based on our schedule, when we were in town, to go through all the events of the reception. He had countless ideas and he genuinely cared about making us extra special on our day. Dave actually could make one skeptical because he literally speaks so highly to the product that he provides that you start to think that there is no way that we could ever have an event that spectacular.

    When it came to the big day did he ever deliver in Remarkable Fashion!

    The reception started out with Dave uniquely introducing each member of our bridal party, and his clever personal touch made each member unforgettable to the rest of our guests. The introductions then moved into a unique love story that he had prepared about us that we heard for the first time. As he portrayed our story to everyone in attendance there wasn’t a single person that was not emotionally caught up into the moment. Dave would have everyone laughing and the next moment he had everyone reaching for something to wipe their eyes, then back to laughter. It truly was unforgettable and amazing.

    Once we moved into the dinner and speeches Dave continued to entertain our guests and provide several more flashes of well-placed charm and humor. Every single guest was included and felt welcome. When things did not go as planned, which always seems to happen at weddings, Dave was on point for everything leaving us free to mingle with guests stress free.

    The one thing we desired was a night that everyone did not want to end and that is exactly what we got because of Dave. There wasn’t one moment that the dance floor was empty and the majority of guests were still there at the end of the night willing to party until the sun came up had the venue allowed.

    When we started this process we hired a DJ, but when the night ended we left with a friend whom was part of our special day that all our guests were raving about.

    I can't say enough good things about Dave!

    Dave was our MC and DJ at our wedding on July 13th, 2019. He did a fantastic job at keeping the party going. He was very funny and a joy to talk to but also very professional. He went above any beyond what I expected and even created a beautiful backdrop for our head table in our wedding colours. I would recommend Dave to anyone in a heartbeat. I'm hoping we have another opportunity in the future to work with him again.

    Dave was the DJ for our September 12th, 2015 wedding at Pheasant Run Golf Course and delivered a service that was above & beyond what we expected! Dave was recommended through a friend who told us he knows how to get a good party started & every bit of that was true. From the moment I made first contact with Dave, he has always been promptly available to answer my many questions & brought a real personal touch to his service that was greatly appreciated. Our wedding had a guest list of 170 people and approx. 80 of those guests were in their 20's & 30's - it was important to us to have a music and entertainment that was "up to date" & current, but with a great mix of the classics. Dave executed this flawlessly and created a playlist that satisfied everyone at the wedding through his request system (he provided cards at the wedding for our guests) & kept our dance floor PACT all night long! A service Dave provided that I truly didn't value until after the wedding when I talked about it with our other engaged friends is the Coordination of the day he provided - Dave worked with us on making an entire day-of time-line that detailed every minute of the day. Dave's experience and coordination gave us a flawless time-line and caused everything to run so smoothly! An example of this was our cake cutting - because of the size of our wedding, our dinner went a bit longer than expected. To make up for the lost time so we could the party started early, Dave came up to Steve & I and made a great suggestion that while guests waited around for the desserts to be handed out, we do the cake cutting and give everyone something to entertain them with while they wait. It was suggestions like this that saved us time & gave us an opportunity to make every minute count without wasting any of it on "sitting around".

    We cannot thank you enough Dave for giving us & our guests an amazing memory that we will cherish forever!

    We highly recommend Dave Hastings, Sound Solution Professional DJ Entertainment.

    My hubby & I got married at the beautiful venue, Oakview Terrace, in Richmond Hill. Dave Hastings (Sound Solutions) came highly recommended by the venue as he has DJ'd at countless receptions there. We thought okay sure, it can't hurt to meet this guy but we'll definitely check out a few other potential DJ's before making a decision. Well, after our first meeting with Dave, at his lovely home, we knew we not only found our DJ but Dave was also our charismatic Emcee!

    Working with Dave was actually a stress reliever which any bride can appreciate. He was always friendly, prompt with replies and full of interesting ideas and ways to enhance and personalize our wedding. If you have specific requests you've envisioned for the big day, Dave really listens and cares about making it happen.

    The guests at our wedding loved him! We had some kids there and the kissing game we picked (Dave gave us several to choose from) involved putt-putt golf. Well, many young ones played and Dave was so wonderful with them. Having him as the emcee was a brilliant choice! He is quick-witted... my Dad gave the world's shortest speech (nerves!) and without missing a beat Dave says "if anyone would like the transcript for the Father of the Bride speech, it'll be available later" LOL! Everyone had a good chuckle. Then, when it came time to dance, all guests got little cards to write their top 3 song picks (this in addition to guests having the ability to choose music they like on Dave's website prior to the wedding) We were all happy and danced the night away!

    Yes, Yes, Yes . . . we absolutely recommend Dave Hastings (Sound Solution) !!!
