  • Soulful Sounds is great at what they do. They got the party started at my wedding right away. Everyone was on the dance floor all night. My husband, family, and I highly recommend them. My husband’s family used them multiple times and they always gave everyone a great night. Jeff and his team worked with us closely and made sure they incorporated music we wanted and everything else we asked of them. If you want to have an amazing night, I would use them. They will make it one to remember! Kim & Joseph
  • Soulful Sounds was very professional from start to finish. They were able to work with my budget. All the last minute changes I had, they were able to accommodate. They kept my guests moving the entire night. Nicole & Owen
  • Jeff and the Soulful Sounds team are amazing, we spoke the week of the wedding to discuss some music changes and the vibe of the dance floor. Jeff understood my vision and interpreted even when I wasn't quite sure how to bridge exactly what I wanted. During the ceremony, we had three song changes and everything went seamlessly. At the dinner, Jeff served as host and guided my guests through dinner and speeches, effortlessly. He was able to play music at the reception that had my family and friends of all generations on the dance floor and he did it with he utmost professionalism and charm. Our guests were given party favors and were extremely pleased that they were able to sweat it out after a romantic ceremony. If you're looking for D.J. services for your wedding or event, Soulful Sounds are the best! Danielle
  • Soulful Sounds was amazing. I could not be happier with the service. They had the party going all night. Jeff listened to our requests and was the perfect mix of engaging and letting things flow all night. By the end of the reception he knew many of our guests by name. I highly recommend Soulful Sounds. They were an absolute pleasure to work with. If you're reading this review look no further. Book them, they are the best. Eboni & Reggie
  • Thank you so much for an amazing DJ set at our wedding. We have had so many friends and family say the DJ & MC were so great! You both did an out standing job & we loved every moment. Bridget & John Shaw

Soulful Sounds: For the Best African American Wedding DJs

When you plan your wedding, there are a few crucial things you should never skimp on. One of them is the music. Because let’s be honest: Music can make or break your celebrations, especially when it is one of the most significant days of your life. Some might even call it the heart and soul of the wedding reception. And why not? Everyone enjoys good music. And there is nothing like a fun and exciting playlist to get everyone – from your 5-year-old niece to your 85-year-old grandma – to the dance floor.

When it comes to deciding on your wedding music, there are a few options you can choose from. You can get a traditional wedding band or you can get an African American wedding DJ. You can also get both. Most couples today, however, prefer to hire professional DJs to perform on their big day. Sure, live music can enhance the
ambiance and treat your guests to an actual performance, but a DJ will provide you with a seamless experience coupled with an endless selection of your favorite songs, unmatched volume control, and most importantly, lower prices. Yes, that’s right. Hiring a DJ for your African American wedding is one of the best and smartest decisions you
can make yourself.

Get Professional African American Wedding DJs

When you consider picking a wedding DJ, it may seem tempting to save some money and ask your cousin who knows their way around a music system. But here’s the thing: If you want your wedding reception to be magical and memorable, hiring an amateur isn’t going to cut it. You need a professional. And that’s why we are here.

If you want to enjoy African American DJ services, get in touch with us at Soulful Sounds. We have been a part of this industry for more than two decades and offer a wide range of services, which include DJ music (R&B, Calypso, Salsa, Reggae, Hip-Hop, Old School & Gospel, Dance, Disco, and more), MC services (Guest Interaction, Crowd Motivation, Formal Introductions, Event Announcements, and more), party favor giveaways, special lighting packages and effects, and music.

We have some of the best DJs in North Carolina and New York and when you work with us, here are a few things you get to enjoy:

  • The perfect playlist
    There are millions of wedding songs, which makes picking the right ones a huge task. A professional wedding DJ will do that for you. They will work closely with you to know your favorites and create a playlist that will keep everyone dancing all night long.
  • Hassle-free planning
    Wedding planning is no joke, which is why hiring a wedding DJ is a great decision because they will take one thing off your plate and that is the music. From song selection to figuring out what to play or what NOT to play, how long to play, and so on, they will do it all.
  • State-of-the-art equipment
    Our DJs use the finest equipment that creates a perfect audio atmosphere and offers a memorable experience for everyone present.

Get in touch with us today for affordable African American wedding entertainment. We would love to hear from you.
