Sound Sensations Entertainment Vision

Sound Sensations Entertainment specializes in Wedding Entertainment that is focused on highly personalized, engaging entertainment that is all about you! Every aspect of your entertainment experience focuses on bringing a fun, engaging experience for everyone at the event.


How We Are Different?


Our company competes with more than 300 other entertainment companies in Wisconsin. Yes, that’s a lot! That’s why it’s highly important to differentiate. What makes us different from the rest is that we take the time to get to know each and every couple on a personal level, and deliver excellence in our customer service from the very initial contact through the end of their event. This happens from the first touch point, and continues through their journey until the event is over and far beyond.

We believe in Relationships FIRST:

-With our prospects
-With our clients/couples
-With the Vendors we work with
-With our Rock Star Team

Entertainment Experience – It’s MORE than just MUSIC!


If all we did was show up and play music at an event, we would’ve been replaced by ipods, and DIY long ago. Today, it’s all about delivering an extraordinary experience to guests, whether a wedding, reunion, party, photo booth, birthday celebration or any event, at the end of the night, guests should say WOW, that was an amazing night! This is achieved by our team delivering and creating “special moments” and/or “surprises” along the way that get guests to turn their heads and say WOW!
It’s so much more that a photo booth attendant standing and handing out prints, or a DJ standing behind their system and pushing buttons, expecting guests to dance.
80% of a clients experience happens during the planning process, 20% happens on the day of the event. We dedicate approximately 30-40 hours into every single event.

Company History - How It All Started…


Aspirations & Early Beginnings (1987)
Ed Eaton grew up in small town New England, in Easthampton, Massachusetts, and has always aspired to be a DJ since he was 7 years old, starting out in his bedroom with two turntables and a microphone practicing in front of a mirror for 6 years before doing his first wedding reception at the age of 13 (back in 1987) at The Lord Jeffrey Inn in Amherst, Massachusetts.

E & D Sounds (1988-1993)
In 8th grade, Ed & his middle school friend Dan Hayden, together created E & D Sounds and did several mainly Elementary, Middle & High School dance events all over the Pioneer Valley area in Western Massachusetts all on cassette and vinyl.

Spin’n Discs Entertainment (1993-1997)
In the Fall of 1993, Ed continued his DJ Entertainment career at Ripon College, in Ripon Wisconsin where he partnered with Kelly Bales and formed Spin’n Discs Entertainment out of his college dorm room and did a ton of house parties, high school dances, and college events all over Ripon and the surrounding areas, but mainly most of the events at his school and college fraternity graduating to mix tapes, and CDs.

AC Royal Entertainment (1998-2001)
In 1998, after moving back to Wisconsin following college, Ed joined AC Royal Entertainment, an established multi-op DJ company in Oshkosh, WI. It was here that he converted from house parties and school events to mainly all weddings week in and week out. While working at AC Royal Entertainment on the weekends, he spent the rest of his time owning and running a nightclub called Encounters in Oshkosh, where he met his now wife, Alisa, who gave him the encouragement to start his own wedding DJ Entertainment company in the Fox Valley after feeling much discontent with compensation and respect as a wedding DJ working for a multi-op.

Sound Sensations Entertainment (2001- Present)
Shortly after Alisa & Ed were married in Oshkosh, out of their first house, they formed Sound Sensations Entertainment, a name his wife came up with, and from that point forward, their focus was weddings and events all over the Fox Valley area of Wisconsin in 2001 and have been growing their business ever since. At the end of 2015, Ed left corporate America to pursue the business full time.

In 2016, we added a photo booth division, and added 3 staff to the team
In 2017, we added a 2nd photo booth, and a DJ training program and broke doing 100+ events annually.
In early 2018, we acquired office space just off highway 41 in Oshkosh and continue to grow and expand. It is our goal in 2018 to do 75 Photo Booth events, increase our growing referral rate, & continue to develop additional relationships with industry vendors.

The federal immigration law requires that every individual provide satisfactory evidence of their identity and legal authority to work in the United States no later than 3 business days after they begin new employment.


Dress Code

Whether we like it or not, people treat us many times by their first impression of us. Therefore we like the saying...”When in doubt, overdress!”

DJs/MCs – Client Meetings:
All DJs/MCs should wear either khaki’s or black pants with a logoed “Sound Sensations” button down dress shirt to any meetings scheduled with the client, this includes collaboration meetings and any sales meetings or venue site walk throughs. In addition, you should be fresh smelling, no/minimal tattoos showing, and clean shaven.

DJs/MCs & DJ Assistants– Events:
Men: Wear either khaki’s or black pants with a logoed “Sound Sensations” button down dress shirt for the actual event, with a Sound Sensations Name Tag, unless a client has given you different instructions (ie themed event attire). Good smelling breath and body is imperative as you will be working around people in your work environment.

Ladies: Wear a skirt/dress and dark blouse, or black dress, with a Sound Sensations Name Tag, or pants with a logoed shirt. You should be dressed and ready to go at least 30 minutes before guests arrive in event dress attire. Good smelling breath and body is imperative as you will be working around people in your work environment.

ALL STAFF/PERSONNEL MUST ALWAYS BE WELL GROOMED

Scheduling Events/Work Schedule

One of the biggest perks of being a part of our team is flexible scheduling. You can choose your own work schedule. In the event industry, events are often schedule up to 18-24 months in advance. Every single event needs to be covered, as your role is integral to the success of our company, and the client’s often once-in-a-lifetime event. The Master Event Schedule is located online as a “Google Doc” and every team member has full access to the spreadsheet.

We WILL NOT Tolerate Tardiness or absences!

It’s a long list that looks like this:

Updated 2/7DJAPBCOMBODJName of EventLocationPKG
 1/13/2018  Calum  Zyan JJ Dance South Park Elementary DJ/PB

The DJA Column is for “DJ Assistant” shifts, the “PB” column is for “Photo Booth Attendant” shifts, “Combo” column is a combined position where you’ll do both. Pay attention to the location of the event, as that is where you’ll be doing the event for that particular event.

If the column has an open white box with no name listed, then that is an open shift available for sign up. If there is a name in the box like above in the PB Box, Calum is listed, so that event is already filled by someone.

If a box is blocked out, like in the Combo box above, it means there isn’t a need for that position on that date.

Please note: Once you add your name to a date, if you need to switch or that event off, it’s your responsibility to find a replacement.

You can sign up for as many shifts/events as you would like, at a minimum you should pick 2 per month per company policy.

Switching Shifts/Events

Coverage for every Sound Sensations Entertainment event is critical. Without our team members present, it makes it difficult to deliver an extraordinary experience for our clients, no matter what type of event we are having. We also understand that from time to time, life circumstances happen, where you can’t work an event that you’ve committed to.

Procedure/Policy: If you are scheduled to work an event, and you can no longer work the event, or would like to get that night off, please contact another team member to switch with that is listed on the “Team Contact” sheet.
You are responsible to work the event you’ve signed up for, until another team member picks up your event, and/or switches with you. Tardiness & No shows Will NOT Be Tolerated!

Procedure: Once you’ve switched shifts, make sure you update the schedule in the Google Doc online, and then shoot the assigned DJ a text or email and let them know who is replacing you.

Policy: If you are scheduled to work an event, and need to switch dates, the last day for switching an event is Tuesday by 3pm of the week of the event.
Logistics & paperwork for the upcoming weekend events are sent out on Tuesday at 4:15 pm, to prevent the appropriate team members from getting the information they need regarding an event, the cut off is Tuesday at 3pm for switching dates.

Punctuality/Event Day Logistics

This is the most important aspect of your job because no matter how much you know, you will not be able to help if you are not here. All we ask is that you respect the time of your other team members. When you arrive late, you are sending a message (whether you mean to or not) that your personal time is more important than that of the team member who was waiting for you.

Always arrive on time and ready to help each other succeed!

Procedure: If you are scheduled to work an event, you’ll receive a logistics email on Tuesdays at 4:15pm of the week you are working an event, with all of the event details for the event, including names, shift start time/end time, location of the event, which transportation you’ll be using etc. Please make sure you arrive on time to start your shift. Tardiness and/or No Shows Will NOT Be Tolerated!

Policy: The first occurrence of your late arrival will be brought to your attention, and you’ll receive a “written warning.” The 2nd occurrence is grounds for termination.

Due to the nature of our business, punctuality is extremely important on what is the biggest day of our clients lives, please be on time.

Communication


With 21st century communication rapidly changing all the time, technology provides so many methods of communication, sometimes it can be hard to keep up, or keep everyone on one preferred channel. Our company communicates primarily through email and text. If you don’t already, please make it a habit of checking your email regularly (at least once a day).


As you communicate with couples (especially DJs/MCs), it’s imperative to get back to them within 24 hours.


I understand that we all have life to deal with, but please make it a habit of responding to email/text communication within 24 hours. In addition, if you are scheduled to work a shift and you receive the logistics email on Tuesday, please confirm via email that you received the logistics email for the weekend, and communicate any questions you may have. Emails can sometimes go into a big, black hole of spam (never again to be found). We want to make sure you know where and when you are going to an event.
