Powered by vivacious couple DJ Starlene and DJ Steffon, Sound Fusion Entertainment is taking Las Vegas wedding music by storm! As disc jockeys with mixing experience, breadth in their musical repertoire, and exceptional organizational skills for wedding timelines, these two have garnered attention for their blend of musical finesse and event direction.
“We are a DJ company that specializes in all events,” DJ Steffon said at the most recent Bridal Spectacular bridal show. “We emcee. We DJ. We actually run a timeline.”
Before Sound Fusion revolutionized wedding music and event direction, they started their disc jockey careers in nightclubs. In this scene, they stepped into their own grooves, which includes custom mixing and the use of turntables even in the digital age.
“Sound Fusion’s real niche is we’re one of the only entertainment companies in town that actually uses turntables,” DJ Starlene said. “What I love about the turntables is it really gives us the opportunity to really use our mixing technique in order to blend the music. That way, it flows one song into another, which is amazing to be able to have that type of equipment.”
Through turntables, Sound Fusion Entertainment creates flawless custom mixes and smooth transitions from one song to the next. Then during a wedding reception, the bride, groom, and guests can party on the dance floor with no pauses between songs and perfect beat-matching.
“To be able to blend that, it’s perfect,” DJ Starlene said. “It’s just a seamless sound, which is amazing.”
In addition to their turntables expertise, Sound Fusion Entertainment is renowned for their diverse musical style. Thanks to their nightclub backgrounds, both DJs were motivated to branch beyond the norm and learn more about music. As they absorbed all styles into their musical repertoire, they prepared for weddings where they now offer to play any style for any bride and groom.
“A true DJ doesn’t have one style,” DJ Steffon said. “They’re able to encompass a lot of different forms and fit each type of music. … We encourage our brides and grooms to come in and give us the music they like and their families like. We like it to be something special for them, and for their guests to walk away, saying, ‘That was their wedding.’”
While Sound Fusion Entertainment excels at wedding ceremony and reception music, this company also offers personal event direction. Then brides and grooms can experience a seamless event to complement the seamless sound.
“Everyone’s misconception is that DJs just come to play music. And that couldn’t be farther from the truth,” DJ Starlene said.
DJ Steffon agreed. “A good DJ will be able to run a timeline, keep you all organized, and make sure all vendors are there to capture all the correct moments at the right times,” he said.
In advance, Sound Fusion Entertainment meets with brides and grooms to establish their timelines. This may include the times of the grand entrance, dinner, toasts, special dances, cake cutting, bouquet toss, and more. With this timeline, it becomes the DJ’s responsibility to ensure all events are on time and executed well. Then brides and grooms can to enjoy their special days, rather than worry about details.
“We have a timeline to keep them on time, so they don’t have to worry about looking at their watches all night,” DJ Steffon said.
While Sound Fusion works to keep the couple on schedule without making the wedding seemed rushed, they also coordinate with the vendors. For example, before they announce the toasts, they make sure the catering team has first distributed champagne to the guests.
“We’re working hand-in-hand with the other vendors,” DJ Starlene said. “[We’re] there to make sure the wedding is running properly.”
With Sound Fusion to handle the timing, organization, and customized music, brides and grooms are free to do exactly what they hoped: celebrate the beautiful starts to their marriages with weddings that reflect exactly who they are!
“It’s very nice and refreshing to do weddings and make it special to each bride, each couple,” DJ Steffon said.
DJ Starlene agreed as she reflected on making each bride’s special day her best. “I love it!”
