  • Thank you Doug for keeping everything moving, playing all our requests, and keeping the dance floor packed! Doug was also a great MC of the event. (Only issue was SOWA added an additional charge for insurance needed 1 week before the wedding. Should have been told about it months ago. )

    Thank you Heather, we're glad to hear that you enjoyed Doug as your MC and DJ on your wedding day. In regards to the insurance, we do carry liability insurance that is customary in the industry. The venue, however, required an addition to the insurance that is not customary, was to benefit them only, cost almost as much as our policy does for a year, and was not communicated to us until many months after Doug had been booked and the wedding date was fast approaching. When the venue would not respond to reason, placed blame on the bride for not properly communicating the requirement to us at the time of booking, and was going to not allow Doug on-property without it, we were stuck in the awkward position of having to ask for something that could have been built into the package had we known about it prior to booking. Now that we're aware that this venue has extraordinary insurance requirements for vendors, we have made it a point to confirm with each couple booking us for events there that the excessive insurance requirement is still in place as we're preparing their package, so that we can avoid any surprises in the future.

  • He was so chill and he is young so he knew what we were going for at our wedding. He was dancing along in the back and was great at guiding everyone into dinner and cake etc

  • We used Sowa Entertainment for our DJ and photobooth for a wedding of 100 or so at Mount Sunapee Resort. The photobooth was really fun and got a lot of use from our guests. The attendant, Oral, was friendly, approachable, and professional. Worked with the Office Manager, Dan, to review our needs and he matched us with our DJ. Evin coordinated with vendors, helped us develop the day's timeline, and delivered a great selection of songs with limited input from us. It took some of the stress away in planning our wedding. Thank you Evin, Oral, and Dan for making our wedding special!

  • Evin Baird was a wonderful guitarist to have set the mood during our wedding ceremony, happy hour, and our first dance. He was super laid back about us getting our exact plan to him, and extremely open to learning pretty much anything we wanted him to play for our ceremony. At one point of deep indecision when deciding on what music to have for the ceremony, we just asked him for suggestions. He replied back with a couple songs which he liked from other weddings, but reminded us that it was our day and we should absolutely feel like we've made our ceremony our own. He continued that supportive nature and provided a calm presence the day of our wedding, working seamlessly with our DJ who he had never met before.

  • Greg was the best DJ we could have asked for. Guests are still talking about how he kept the party going all night long. His personalizations for our wedding party were wonderful. He has experience in the wedding game, and it shows. If you are looking for someone who has the right equipment, attention to detail, and will keep your guests entertained until the last minute, look no further!

  • I can't say enough about how great Sowa Entertainment is and how awesome their staff is! DJ Greg played our November, 2018 wedding and was PHENOMENAL! I literally had multiple people come up and tell me how great the DJ was. The entire process with Sowa Entertainment was wonderful and very easy, they are really organized, on top of everything, and really listened to our requests and did everything they needed to do to make our day perfect. The song selection was FIRE and the dance floor stayed lit all night. Greg did some really great introductions for our wedding parties which everyone loved, and was even able to accomodate a musician we hired to play our first dance sing! I would highly recommend Sowa Entertainment and DJ Greg for your wedding. They were worth every penny and went above and beyond to make our day extra special! You will not regret hiring them, highly recommend, 5/5 stars!

  • I persobally wasnt planning on a DJ, thjnking that is where we would save money but my husband convinced me. We had the best experience with SOWA Entertainment. Our DJ, Evin, really got us and was totally on board to make our vision come to life. My husband and I are not exactly planners and Evin really went the extra mile as far as helping us map the day/night, assign needed roles we hadn't thought of, and even caught a scheduling mistake I had made with one if our vendors, which saved the day. We got a ceremony and reception package and i highly recommend the experience. Why worry if your cousin is going to hit the cues on her phone when you can get professional equipment and a DJ who really knows what they are doing. Definitely would recommend this company and Evin, it was probably the best money we spent!

    We are so glad Evin was able to go the extra mile to make your wedding everything you wanted. Your kind words mean so much to us. We wish you all the best!

  • We had a great experience from start to finish with Sowa Entertainment for our wedding last summer at Waterville Valley in New Hampshire. They know the location and the staff well and I loved the Google Doc system our DJ Doug used. Thanks for the fun memories!

  • We hired Sowa Entertainment for our wedding in NH, and it was absolutely the right choice. Greg met us twice before the weekend of our wedding to get a feel for exactly what we were looking for, and he nailed it. The personal touch he brought to our reception (introducing each member of our wedding party with personalized introductions he wrote based on questionnaires we filled out) was perfect, and all night we had guests coming up to us and saying how much they loved it. Greg took the time to get to know my wife and I as a couple and, as our MC, he had our ceremony running seamlessly. He even helped us build out our timeline for the day-of, and made the entire process as stress-free as possible. As a DJ, Greg had our guests on the dance floor all night. Song after song, he gave our evening the right flow, just what we were after, and it was fantastic. He provided the perfect soundtrack for our night. I can't thank Greg enough, he was a rockstar. I highly recommend Sowa Entertai... Read more

  • We booked Sowa Entertainment for our wedding day photobooth and Greg as our MC and DJ for our August Wedding in Waterville Valley, NH and were not disappointed! Greg was always upbeat and made plenty of time for us to meet and discuss the details of our wedding day (he literally drove in a snowstorm to meet with us!!)! Greg was crucial in us helping to build our timeline for the day of, which made everything so much more stress-free! Sowa Entertainment sets up an easy-to-use website where you can organize all the songs you want to hear at your reception...and when you've gotten that far in wedding planning, you seriously just want things organized and easy! Greg took our ideas and threw in some of his own and helped make for a really fun night, with plenty of people on the dance floor until we got kicked out! The photobooth was a big hit and we loved the album/guestbook that we were provided at the end of the night! I think that was our favorite thing about the next morning, gettin... Read more

  • Sowa Entertainment was recommended to us by family friends, and we are so happy we used this company for the DJ and photobooth services. Doug was our DJ and he was great. We met with him multiple times and he had some great suggestions for music selections. He was also very open to anything and everything we wanted. He provided the ceremony and reception music. He's also an MC, which was great to have for the reception. He kept the flow of the reception and transitioned well between cocktail hour, special dances, dinner, and dancing. Our guests loved dancing! The photobooth was also a great addition. There an attendant for the photobooth, which helped guests figure out what to do. The attendant was very patient with our guests. She also went over and above expectations, as she assisted guests with our GoPro (guests left video messages for us). We also received a flashdrive with all the photobooth images, which were fun to look at after the wedding. We highly recommen... Read more

  • Greg was amazing! He goes way beyond just playing music and helping coordinating the timeline of events. Greg is not just another MC and he makes sure your wedding is not just another wedding. He puts a large effort into making it personable to your wedding. While announcing the wedding party he gave little quips and funny anecdotes we told him about. He was able to get everyone to smile lovingly and laugh talking about our story. He could also read the crowd and see what to play to get people on the dancefloor. All of our guests throughout the night said what a wonderful choice he was. Completely engaging, prepared, professional, and most of all fun!

    Thank you, Bre! It was so much fun working with (and celebrating with) you and Ken on your wedding day at Sunapee. -Greg-

  • We booked DJ Greg Sowa for our July 7th wedding. It is immediately clear that he is super professional. He not only communicated with us by email and phone, but even FaceTime as we were located in different states. When we met for our planning meeting he knew just what to ask us to find out what our wants, needs, and likes were. He also left some things completely up to us and never made us feel like we had to include anything in our big day that we didn't want. On the day of, he was right there to make sure things ran smoothly. Every request we had of him ended up met. Best of all, his enthusiastic personality started the party and kept it going the entire night. Guests even commented how much fun the DJ was! Very happy we booked a DJ that listened to us, understood our vision, and completely brought it to life while allowing us to enjoy our day with little stress!

    Thank you for your kind words, Jessica. Greg had a phenomenal time working with you and Kevin on your special day. We wish you all the best in married life! -Dan

  • We booked Sowa for a photobooth at our wedding in freedom, NH. My sister had used them for her wedding and they were great then, but it appears to have gone downhill. They were unresponsive leading up to the wedding and then sent the proofs for our design of our photostrips about 24 hours in advance to the event. I was so busy I didn't even have time to approve them. They then showed up an hour late to our reception, photos were washed out and the attendant was reluctant to help fix it. One of my guests literally moved the booth around to try and improve the photos. The attendant seemed bothered when anyone attempted to use the photobooth. It has been less than a month since our wedding and we have emailed Greg and left two voicemails and have gotten no response. I am glad that we chose to get a photobooth but I would never feel comfortable recommending this company to anyone else.
