Wedding and Ceremony at the Grand Bend Oakwood Resort, September 19th 2015
I have been in the hospitality business for 10 years, I have seen good djs and bad djs. I recently had the pleasure of working very
closely with Adrian Peters from A&M Sounds Disc jockey Service at the Oakwood resort for a wedding. The bride and groom had nothing to say but great things the next morning about how well their big day was. This had a lot to do with how well Adrian was able to read the crowd and keep everyone in the room happy and dancing until the very end.
He even had to do an encore! If he was able to keep playing he would have. He did not miss a single second of timing when it came to the grand entrance, first dance, mother son song, father daughter or cake cutting song.
At Oakwood we have DJ's we recommend to our clients. I honestly wish I would have seen Adrian perform earlier. We plan on working with Adrian in the near future and will be recommending him to our future clients.

Wedding at Sawmill Creek, June 15 2013
I am writing to thank you for your professionalism both during the planning process as well as the wedding reception. Clearly you know your business and should take great pride in your skill of determining what type of music the crowd is looking for as well as deciding proper timing for the special events and announcements.
Prior to us choosing a DJ, I made a point of researching and looking for referrals for a professional as I recognize that the choice of DJ is essential to make the event a success. All of the feedback received is that you are the ultimate professional and I certainly know you took responsibility for the evening which was evident in how you kept the guests, as well as the Bride and Groom, dancing the night away. The memories will last forever.
The night was a tremendous success thanks to you and I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone requiring disc jockey service.

Wedding reception at Quai Du Vin Estate Winery Sparta, August 29th 2015
Adrian was a professional who acted as much more than a DJ at our wedding. He was able to help keep our timeline going throughout the day and night so that it flowed as it should. Making well informed decisions on the fly to ensure our day was perfect. He went above his duty to make sure our lights on the tent worked behind our head table to ensuring the slideshow was working and grabbing drinks for the head table. He was able to keep the dance floor packed the entire night making for a great atmosphere. It was exactly what I had pictured for the dance floor at my wedding and he was able to make it happen. Overall, a worthwhile investment in our wedding day.
Thanks again Adrian!

Adrian set us up with Steve who was the DJ for our wedding - and it was an absolute delight to work with them both! Everything from planning to the day of, everything went perfectly and Steve had everyone engaged and dancing on the dance floor all night long. The music timing and cuing for the ceremony went off without a hitch, and thanks to Adrian or setting a plan to make sure everyone knew what was playing when. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding, and the music had a lot to do with it. Everyone at one point during the wedding said "great music" and I thank A&M sounds for that. - Meg & Julian
Wedding, August 2016
Adrian is most definitely more then a DJ. He went above and beyond his call to make sure things ran smoothly always checking in to see if we needed anything and kept the night rolling. Our MC found him very helpful in many ways. The music was great as we had people up all night!! Thanks very much as our reception couldn't of been any better!!!
ENJO Convention at The Tannery Kitchener, June 6 2015
For the first time in ENJO Conference history I had people say how great the DJ was!! So, take that as a big compliment!
As expected you were great, and we thank you for that.
Wedding at the C.A.S.O Station St Thomas, September 2016
Wow!!! Adrian was our DJ for our wedding, Sept 24th....correction, Adrian basically ran the show that day, including taking on the role of Emcee!!! His knowledge was incredibly helpful from the moment we had our consultation. He spoke of things and brought things to our attention that, to be honest I doubt we would have even considered. It's very evident that this has been his passion for 32+ years, and for that we are grateful! We are proud to say that soooo many people told us our wedding was the best wedding they had ever attended!!! The atmosphere was filled with positive energy, immense love and a dash of humour. When the reception began, Adrian was always there offering to get us anything we might have needed. He ensured the staff of the hall carried our plates in order to not spill on ourselves. He offered us water or wine throughout our meal...much appreciated. The dance floor was packed the entire night!!! Our friends and family had the time of their lives and we couldn't have been happier with his service! We both admire Adrian for his expertise and kindness, and will always recommend A & M Sounds to anyone we know!!! Keep up the great work Adrian!!!
Much love, Mrs & Mrs Jackson-Awcock
Wedding at the C.A.S.O. station in St Thomas, August 15 2015
Thank you so much for providing our DJ services for our wedding. Without you I do not think that our night would have been complete or run as smoothly as it did. When we first set our budget we didn't think about the cost of a DJ and fit it in as an extra. After meeting you at one of the bridal shows I really considered how much music actually matters.
We had a very small DIY wedding and not a huge budget. When we first spoke you talked about the importance of the right DJ and offered advice to selecting one and what we can expect. We interviewed a few DJ's but I kept coming back to your name. We reworked our budget to make sure we got the best of the best. We were not wrong. We saw the importance of music at a wedding and realized that the budget can be fixed to accommodate priorities.
Everything from the lists of top songs to the emcee itineraries and everything we needed music selected for made our decisions just that much easier. The entire night went smoothly. You made sure the music flowed with the events and that my husband and I were where we needed to be at the right times. Our guests raved about your service and how we did well with our choice. There was always someone on the dance floor until the very end of the night.
We could not be more happy with everything and so grateful for all of your help. I will continue to recommend you to everyone we know getting married.
Thank you again for helping make our wedding absolutely perfect!!

Wedding at Craigowan Golf & Country Club, Woodstock August 4th 2015
Where do I start. We hired Adrian for our wedding on July 4th to perform at both the ceremony and the reception. To say we were very pleased would be a huge understatement. Adrian went above and beyond to ensure that the entire day ran smoothly and that we had the perfect day we were hoping for. His timing and quality of songs during the ceremony was perfect. At the reception he played music that kept all ages on the dance floor throughout the entire night!
Many of our guests made comments on how smoothly the night went and how much fun they had. Adrian definitely exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much for being a huge part of our day! I know a few of our guests will be talking to you about future services!
Thank you for taking the time to read the following testimonials (more available upon request)
We are proud of our accomplishments and pride ourselves in knowing we are providing the
best service possible to our clients!
New Years Eve Wedding Ukraina Country Club London Ontario, December 31st 2014
I have been meaning to send you a review since we got back from our honeymoon following our New Years Eve Wedding on December 31, 2014.
We cannot put into words how pleased we were with the services you provided on our Wedding Day!!
You went above and beyond our expectations as our DJ, you made the whole ceremony and the reception run smoothly.
You were amazing to work with right from the beginning, going over important details that I hadn't even thought of! We would recommend you to anyone and say that you guys were definitely worth the money!
We had so many guests comment on how great the music was during the entire day and into the reception, everyone raved about the DJ!

Birthday Party at the C.A.S.O. Station St Thomas, April 19 2014
Nice to have a DJ that is talented and savvy enough to feel the crowd and who gets the sense of what makes them move - Doug Tarry's DJ (Adrian) for his 50th Birthday at the St Thomas Railway Station did exactly that.
He played his tunes with the heart that kept that dance floor full all night long. Book this guy before we lose him to NYC or LA!
The DJ was completely amazing! Kept the music going all night long and met the needs of the crowd!!
You know you're having an awesome party when you have 30 plus people playing air guitar on the dance floor and the DJ is trading licks with the birthday boy! HaHa!
Wedding at Springwater Conservation Area, July 13 2013
Adrian is an amazing DJ. He is definitely a professional and he knows his job. He played the best music and read the crowd perfectly.
He was also our MC (which he was not aware of that until the day of!) and was amazing at that, just rolled with it.
He went ABOVE AND BEYOND what we expected. I would recommend him to anyone having any type of function. He made me feel very special on my wedding day.
I really don't know what else to say except that we made the right choice with Adrian. He made me feel comfortable and I trusted his judgement. He did blow our minds!! He really really is amazing! BOOK WITH ADRIAN!! You will not regret it!!

New Years Eve Wedding at the Windermere Manor 2013
Adrian was the disc jockey at our New Years Eve Wedding 2013. Prior to the wedding date Adrian took the time to meet with us individually and understand our taste in music. He was very familiar with our venue and provided a number of helpful recommendations, which made the night run very smoothly. Throughout the evening he worked with our MC's seamlessly to make our wedding a memorable event for all our guests.
Most importantly Adrian had our guests of ALL ages on the dance floor from the minute our speeches ended until well after last call.
He was very professional and connected with us throughout the event...worth every penny and more!
Thanks Adrian for all your help in making our wedding so special.

Thank you for once again providing the Elgin Country area with the best tunes at the London Wine & Food Show. Your music greatly helps to attract attendees to the Elgin County booths.
Thank you also for always having such a positive attitude. We look forward to working with you again in the future.

Allied Accounting & Tax Services Ltd Christmas party Spencer Hall London, November 29 2014
Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.
All the staff thoroughly enjoyed the music and the games were great! The 'chair' game was a great icebreaker and got everyone up and dancing much sooner than in previous years. Accountants aren't ALWAYS boring!
As we discussed, next year is our company's 60th Anniversary and we will likely have a larger crowd as we will be inviting guests. We would be thrilled if you could do your magic once again at this event.
Thanks again for making our celebration memorable. We look forward to future events!!
A & M Sounds DISC JOCKEY SERVICE
Wedding at Elmhurst Inn, September 14 2013
Adrian blew both of us away with his level of professionalism and care. He made himself available to chat on the phone whenever I had questions and since he had done multiple weddings at our venue he was so knowledgeable and was often reminding me of things that I should ask or look into.
Adrian performed our ceremony and took care of the entertainment for the entire night. His recommendation on the red uplighting was something that our photographer truly loved and our guests are still talking about how it brought the room together. He worked with our EMCEE's and ensured that everything went smoothly.
Adrian really knows how to read a crowd and he read ours perfectly. He played music all night that had people up on the dance floor and made sure there was music for all tastes. My parents are still talking about how much they loved the music. They recently went to another wedding with some fellow guests from our wedding and came back disappointed that the DJ at the wedding they went to only played Top 40's music for the younger crowd. They have been telling everyone how impressed they were with Adrian's services at our wedding.
Thank you Adrian for going above and beyond and making our day the best day ever!
All the best.

Ceremony and Reception Elmhurst Inn Ingersoll, May 16 2015
I have one complaint - all our bodies hurt from too much dancing!
Great job. I have never enjoyed a dance more. Just when I thought I could sit a song out to rest, another great song would come on that I would HAVE to dance to. A common thought throughout the crowd.
Thanks for helping make our perfect day perfect-er!
All the best,
Robin (Mother of the bride)
Wedding, July 2019
First off we both want to say how AMAZING our day was thanks to you and your awesome tunes!! From start to finish, your professional set up and easy style made everything sound superb! We couldn't have asked for a better experience!
LOVED the music ... the dancing WOW! Everyone had a great time!
Jen was blown away by the Big Band CD. Years from now when we are in a retirement facility we will have the tunes for an awesome bash. She will never forget what you said when she asked about Tommy Dorsey! Hilarious!
Thanks again for a totally awesome day and wonderful experience!
Naturally you will be recommended by us to and and all who ask for a top notch DJ!
