“I have worked with Sound Wave for the last 17 years and they continue to be the number one DJ & Video Service in Key West. They are professional, they set up on time, come professionally dressed and do the best job of any other company. I not only strongly recommend them for Weddings but for any Corporate Group as they are not your typical “Bar DJ” that Key West has an abundance of. Sound Wave is also excellent as a Master of Ceremonies to do any announcements, work with the events to play the music that they want and do not feel that they have to “entertain” with jokes, etc. They are there for what your music and video needs are.”

Lynne Johnston, Events Coordinator

Casa Marina Resort

“Working with Sound Wave is fantastic! Wedding days are very busy with lots of small details, but when Sound Wave is booked, I know that everything will be done to perfection. They are professional and on time, and this is one item on the list of things to worry about that I can just cross off! Jimmy and his DJs always seem to be able to read the crowd

Reina Todd, Catering Sales Manager
Hyatt Resort, Key West

“Sound Wave is always professional and creative in their presentation and services that they provide. All of my clients have been very pleased with the services provided through Sound Wave as well as their flexibility to work within personal preferences of each client, personalizing their services to tailor to each couple. Your wedding day is one of the most important in your life, and your day will always be remembered through the visual styling’s of Joanna and interpreted through the musical selections of Jim and his DJs. They are a great combo to enhance your special day.”

Lindsey A. Skupski, Catering Manager/Wedding Coordinator
Westin Resort & Sunset Key

“Sound Wave is the best on the Island! They are always dependable, professional, and out of their way helpful. I am always confident when Sound Wave is on the list of vendors for a wedding. There is never any need to worry, as they are always on top of their game and have all the details they need to make your event run smoothly from capturing all the special moments on video right down to making sure everyone’s name is announced at the right time and with the proper pronunciation. I would highly recommend booking with Sound Wave!”

We booked Joanna for our wedding and we couldn't have made a better choice for our videographer! From the moment that I spoke with her on the phone during the initial consultation, I told my then fiance that she was perfect. Just based on the phone conversation, I could tell she was going to do such a great job. She was so kind to all of our guests, including everyone, and made sure to catch all of the right moments while keeping everything on track. We haven't received our full video yet but we (and our family/friends) can't wait to see it after only receiving the highlight videos today! I usually feel so uncomfortable taking pictures or videos but she made the entire process fun and enjoyable. We also had a second videographer through Soundwave who arrived at the ceremony, she was amazing as well. If you're having any doubts about hiring Joanna, don't! We purposely cancelled with the wedding planning company we were originally going with because they wanted us to hire their own videographer but we wanted to go with Soundwave and it was the best decision. We cannot recommend Joanna, or Soundwave, enough!

PERFECTION - I cannot say enough wonderful things about Joanna and her work. She is a total professional and was so responsive and easy to work with from beginning to end. She captured every moment and detail of our special day producing our wedding video that is beyond our wildest dreams. To the quality of the footage and sound, to the way she incorporated the music we selected, to the final edits made we are able to relive our wedding day over and over again. She truly has an art for putting our love story together in our video. We are forever thankful that Joanna was our videographer, you definitely must hire her!!!!!!!!!!!

DJ: I cannot say enough how amazing Jimmy was! We looked around the room and every seat was empty because all of our guests were on the dance floor. From toddlers to grandparents, I don’t think anyone sat the whole night. Exactly what I was hoping for when we booked him! Best music choices, kept the fun going, and so easy (and patient) to work with!Videography: Joanna was amazing!! She knew all of the best spots around town, which was perfect because my Photographer didn’t know the area. She captured every single thing we wanted her to and was always right there when something was happening, even if we didn’t notice it right away. Easy going, funny, total breath of fresh air during a whirlwind of a day. I can’t wait to get our video back so we can relive our day (and catch things we totally missed)! I could go on and on and I’m sad Google only lets you give 5 stars, because Jimmy and Joanna really deserve 10!

I went with SoundWave because it was the highly recommended by our coordinator, Natalie, from Havana Cabana, where our venue took place. Everything came out perfect! Especially having a Wedding where you don't reside so it was a little stressful but I am glad we picked SoundWave. Jimmy is such a wonderful person, always responded to my e-mails quickly with any questions or concerns I had. From Ceremony to Reception, he played every song I requested and it kept us dancing all night long. Highly recommended! =)

Wonderful to work with! Everyone was so quick to respond to any questions... the timeline of our wedding ceremony and reception was so detailed and everyone made us feel at ease leading up to our wedding day. We had DJ Rahm and he was so cool! Very laid back, but knew exactly what to do. It was so much fun to dance and have great music played and not have to worry about anything other than having fun!

What an amazing time we had with DJ Sanaris at our wedding! He did a fantastic job with keeping the event flowing and transitioning from one thing to the next. He was very attentive to us (the bride and groom) and to our guests and their requests. His mix of music was great for getting the party started!Jim Cooper at Soumdwave was also amazing to work with. He was very detail oriented and responsive when planning and made sure our event was just as we imagined. I would 100% recommend using these guys for your DJ needs, you will not be disappointed! Thanks again!-The Saunders

DJ Rahm is personable ,was dressed very nice and easy to communicate with. He knew how to read our crowd and nailed it with the right song at the right time. Our guests say that was the most they have danced in a long time! The best moment of the night was our introductions in as newly weds, he got everyone so excited as we came in the energy was amazing! A memory I will forever remember!! I would highly recommend DJ Rahm❤️

Jim and Joanna Cooper are absolutely amazing! My husband and I used them for our DJ and video services for our Key West wedding at the Pier House.Jim was incredibly thorough, being sure to keep in mind everything that was so musically important to us. I'm so Type A, and had a list of music that I wanted for dinner and dancing. Jim was wonderful and understanding and made sure to play everything that was an absolute must. During the reception, Jim read the crowd well, and played music that suited everyone. The dance floor was always full, and everyone had a blast, most of all our four year old son. Jim played all his favorites. Joanna was so sweet. My husband and I are very private people (part of the reason for a small, intimate wedding in Key West), and at no point during filming did we ever feel like our space was being invaded. Most of the time we weren't even aware that Joanna was there filming us, which made our wedding highlight video that much more incredible. When we watched it we were both in tears. It felt real and not staged at all. She was there to capture the happiest day of our lives, and that's exactly what she did. The editing, music selection, and literally every frame made us feel like we were back to that day. I was amazed at how quickly we received our highlight video back as well. It only took about three and a half weeks to receive this. I would highly recommend anyone looking for video and DJ services to contact Soundwave.

We had booked SoundWave for our DJ and videographer. Jim was the perfect DJ! He played all of the music we requested and at the perfect times. SO easy to work with. He was energetic and exactly what we were looking for in a DJ. A videographer was the last thing in our budget so we did not want to spend $4,000 on a video. I basically told Joanna that I just wanted a video to be able to look back at the ceremony and reception speeches/dances. I even said that I didn't need to have a fancy edited video just something to watch later....I got WAY more than I asked for. It was worth every penny and the best money we spent. I was speechless when they sent us the sneak peek video and I am so excited to see the full version!! Joanna went above and beyond and I just couldn't thank them enough for making our day so special and now we will forever have these memories to watch on repeat for the rest of our lives! If you are on the fence about booking a videographer...you should definitely book Joanna, you will not be disappointed in the slightest.

SoundWave is awesome! Jim Cooper DJ'ed our wedding and he was fantastic. It is obvious he has been doing this a long time and that he enjoys his job. Jim is super professional, fun, and an all-around nice guy. I don't think our wedding guests ever stopped dancing! We highly recommend SoundWave. Thanks for everything Jim!
