My wife and I were given a lot of advice on how to pick a DJ and we met with quite a few, but none of them really seemed to connect with us like Rod did. The DJ may be the most important aspect of your reception. He controls the entire flow of the night and determines whether guests at your wedding have fun or not. I have been to a lot of weddings and seen lot of DJ's and Rod is by far the best. It was a cause of anxiety for my wife and I that people wouldn't dance at the wedding and leave early and that was the opposite of reality. Rod moved about the reception with a sense of urgency that I have never seen from a DJ. Rod seamlessly made the reception flow perfectly and kept people on the dance floor until they turned the lights on and had to kick us out. Rod's talents are not just limited to the reception. His advice and scheduling of the reception are truly priceless. There is a lot of overwhelming planning when it comes to a wedding and my wife and I knew that by choosing Buckeye Sounds the reception was one part that we didn't have to worry about. We used his uplight and bubble package and they are both WELL worth it! It is hard to make the Westin ballroom more beautiful than it already is but Rod did just that with his lighting. Don't think twice about any other DJ and don't skimp. Our reception would not have been the same if it were not for Buckeye Sounds. Thank you Rod!

Don’t leave your reception up to chance. Click our website link to see exactly what you’re getting before you book us.

You've probably already noticed how EVERY DJ company tells you the EXACT same thing? "We're the very best DJ in Central Ohio", "Our gear is the very best too", and "We will customize your reception". You want to have a fun reception but who can you believe? We have a two answers for you! 

One. Come out and see them in person - preferably at their office. Chances are you'll visit your photographer, your venue, your florists and even your cake vendor. If having a fun wedding reception is really important to you, why would you NOT visit your DJ before booking them? At their office you should be able to see first hand exactly what they can do to make your reception fun and determine for yourself who is really good.

Buckeye Sounds is one of the VERY few full time DJs in Central Ohio that has a wedding showroom where you can see what you are getting BEFORE you book our services. You can meet the DJs, see the sound and light systems that set us apart, and even some of the fun party options that we offer all in a very casual relaxed atmosphere.

Two. View videos of your DJ in action - the more the better. If they have a video of your reception venue that's even better. 

Buckeye Sounds has lots of videos options for you. We have some videos on our Wedding Wire page, and even more on our website. Of you can see all our videos here


If you'd like more information about us, please contact us at (614) 342-0025 or by email at Rod@BuckeyeSounds.com

Rod was fantastic from start to finish. He was extremely flexible and he made helpful suggestions. Most importantly he really listened to what we had to say and what we wanted at our wedding, even when we weren't entirely sure what we wanted that to be.

He was very aware of the mood of my wedding guests and played the correct music to compliment that. He was also very good at keeping everything on schedule and playing up certain things that we wanted people to pay attention to. 

My only regret was that I did not hire him to play later than 11PM. Our reception would have gone a couple more hours on the dance floor. He really knew how to keep the crowd happy with his music choices.

Everyone loved our DJ and that's one main things people will remember about a wedding day. How the ceremony went, the food, and the entertainment/DJ!!

Finding a good wedding dj can be difficult. Finding a DJ who wants to make your reception as much fun as you do is even harder. And Buckeye Sounds completely worked with us to make our reception the best we've ever been to. We've been to many receptions were there are large amounts of time with nothing happening and no one dancing. We had to avoid that, and we are still getting comments on how great our reception was!

We had heard about them from our venue and we were so glad that we did. There is a reason they keep referring them to so many of their brides.

They were a bit more expensive then some of the other DJs that we looked at, but it was completely worth it at the end of the night. In the end they had totally met (and exceeded) our vision for our day. What more can you ask for?
