Meet The Owners
Spectrum Sounds was founded in 1994 by me, Michael A. LaMarca. I worked for another company for 6 years before venturing out on my own. I had a vision and made a promise to provide my customers with the highest level of professionalism and service that could be found in this industry. We make our music services a standard while others made them “add-ons.” We understand the importance of the day and know we only have one opportunity to make a client’s day the very best. There are no “do-overs.” We don’t have a second chance to make it the most amazing event they could dream of. In 2016, Jay and I became business partners in Spectrum Sounds, and he elevated the business to a new level. Our combined experience, talents, personalities, dedication to high-quality service, integrity, and professionalism created an entirely new DJ company combining the traditional with a modern flair.
“WOW YES! Mike officiated my best friends wedding and emceed the reception. He gave a lovely ceremony and did a great job keeping the vibes up all night! The DJ (also spectrum sounds) was spinning the HOTTEST 1s and 2s that kept the dance floor full all night! Highly recommend for your next event!”
“Spectrum sounds was amazing to work with! Communication was amazing and quick if my husband or I had any questions. Tony was our DJ on 10.1.21. He was awesome, even all of our guests came up to us saying he was great! We also had the mirror me photo booth and it was a blast out guests had so much fun and the woman working the booth (sorry I'm blanking in her name) was so great with the guests and the select kids we had attend our wedding. If you are looking for a DJ company for your wedding I HIGHLY recommend Spectrum Sounds. They also have photography and officiants.”
“Anthony was our DJ at Mt wedding and u can't say good enough things! He kept the party going all night playing to the crowd that was on the dance floor and helped streamline everything and was in constant communication with me the entire night and the days and weeks before finalizing everything. Spectrum sounds itself was also great to work with, from our first meeting and every time after. I can't recommend them enough!”
“DJ Anthony made our wedding so special. We had a few bumps in our planning process and he worked well to help us smooth them out and made the perfect reception. He was very attentive and easy going and made sure everyone (especially the bride !) had fun.”
“When we planned our wedding there was truly only one DJ in mind - Spectrum Sounds - and we couldn't be happier with the amazing service that they provided. A DJ at a wedding is so much more than just music (which was perfectly cued every step of the night). They are also, in a big way, the curator of the night. They help organize, coordinate, announce, and make sure that everything runs as smoothly as possible. Spectrum Sounds did just that. If I could rewind and make any changes I wouldn't - because they did everything perfectly. Thank you for the memorable night. ”
A: Spectrum Sounds was created in 1998 and since that time we have performed thousands of weddings and parties and our numbers continue to grow every year.
A: Spectrum Sounds carries $1,000,000 liability policy at every event. This is the most important question you should ask your DJ. Many venues now require all DJs to provide a certificate of insurance before they can perform. We can’t stress enough how important it is to make sure your vendor has the appropriate insurance in case of an accident.
A: All performers available through Spectrum Sounds are true wedding specialists, experienced with all types of wedding celebrations and protocols. Weddings are our passion and make up over 80% of the business booked through Spectrum Sounds. We also provide services for high-end corporate functions, birthdays, and private parties, which typically require a similarly elegant approach and attention to detail.
A: Although our prices may appear more expensive than other DJ companies in our area, Spectrum Sounds averages out the prices of at least 10 DJ companies in the Rochester area. We compare our prices to our competitors and adjust our prices accordingly. As we have been told by other DJs in our area, Spectrum Sounds is actually below the industry standard. New DJ companies just starting in the business are pricing their services thousands of dollars above ours.
A: Just as you pay a florist for his or her expertise in flowers, you are paying Spectrum Sounds in large part for our expertise in music. We are more than willing to provide you with a multitude of suggestions based on your preferences, and we’re perfectly comfortable selecting most (or all) of the music if you aren’t interested in doing so. Our extensive knowledge of music enables us to work with your requests and create a mood that reflects your tastes while creating a great atmosphere for all of your guests. In addition, we specialize in addressing music “challenges,” whether combining multicultural musical styles or adapting unique or eclectic music tastes to the formality of a wedding. Both your DJ and our management team are always available to answer questions or assist you in choosing the songs that will reflect your vision of your special day.
