Lauren & Derek - September 25th, 2010

Location: The Pennsylvanian.

I tell this to every bride or groom that calls and they are having their wedding at the Pennsylvanian. . . . The Pennsylvanian's beauty is next to none in Pittsburgh. . . BUT, the acoustics are horrible. You have to sacrifice perfect sound quality for the visual aspect you get here.

That being said, my Bose L1 Compact does an amazing job under the rotunda. When I was walking around the rotunda on Saturday the music had a lot of echo . . . UNTIL you get on the bricks inside the rotunda. . . then the sound quality is amazing. . . the arch of the rotunda lets the sound carry within the arch. . . but once you get out on the side walk. . .it doesn't sound very good.

Room shots.

To help with the echo inside the hall, I run a remote Bose L1 Compact down by the guests. This helps out SOOOOO much, but there is still a lot of echoing with in the hall. I've tried several different things to tame the echoing but this seems to be the best thing to do for now.

I did have one of Lauren and Derek's guests come up to me and chat about the echoing. The gentleman that I was talking to is a Sound Engineer. He said the only way to stop, or limit, the echoing in the hall is to have a sound engineer come down and do an acoustic sound wave test in the hall. Once you have the room mapped out via sound waves, I would need to purchase a sound frequency reanalyzer module. (yes, I am almost lost has as you on all this too.) Then I would need to program the module to take out the frequencies in the room that the sound engineer provided via his test results.

Well it comes down to about $5,000-$6,000 worth of test and equipment.

So, like I said before, you sacrifice sound quality for the visual aspects of the room.

Dear Jeremy,

Darryl and I wanted to thank you for the awesome job you did at our wedding. Having a DJ that kept the evening from being “stale” was of the utmost importance to us and you did exactly that. Although I know many couples book a DJ based on the recommendations of others, I on the other hand did not. I was instantly drawn to your business over what you put out to potential clients as in you did not play the same old wedding reception songs (the chicken dance, hokey pokey, et cetera). As soon as I checked out your website and saw that your end goal was to provide couples with a classic and elegant feel to their wedding reception, I knew that we had found our man. You were the only DJ I actually ever researched or contacted and for that I’m so glad I came across your listing on the Knot’s Pennsylvania recommended vendors.

We received countless compliments on the selection of music played during dinner, and even Darryl who can sometimes be a tough music critic, raved about the mix as well. You were an extreme pleasure to work with from the very beginning to the big day itself. To all future brides and grooms out there, be sure to book Jeremy as your DJ as you will not regret it! It will be one of the best and smartest decisions you’ll make in the wedding planning process.

Lindsey & Kyle - September 18th, 2010

Quick setup picture. I used only one Bose L1 tower today, but it was still way more sound than we needed.

This is my first time in this room at Seven Oaks. It's another beautiful room to have a reception in at Seven Oaks Country Club.
