Wayne Boyland has been a professional DJ since 2001 and is fluent in many musical genres. In addition to weddings, he also does events specifically for kids, teens, young adults and seniors. Wayne truly enjoys playing music for every member of the family, from young to old.
Of course, playing the right song at the right time is important and takes practice and skill. Softer, romantic songs that appeal to a wide variety of tastes and ages work very well during dinner, but the pace needs to gradually pick up to energize the crowd to get up and dance. Wayne enjoys the challenge of making it all appear seamless and natural. "I'm normally low key because I feel it's my job to make the bride and groom shine - not me. I take great care to make introductions and announcements sound very professional - but for couples who like things more playful, I love to help out with any games or line dance lessons along with encouraging the dancers.
All of The Sound Plan's equipment is 100% pro quality. 450 Watt QSC Amp, Electro Voice speakers and Sub woofers, Gemini mixer, dual CD player, laptop computer loaded with 60,000 songs of all types (going back to the big band era and right up to this week's releases), PCDJ special pro DJ software, wireless microphone, wired microphone. Although 99% of the time music is played from the computer, Wayne brings thousands of CD's as back up, just in case. "I can definitely rock the house. In fact, it's kind of rare that I really get to crank the equipment all the way up. For most events it's simply too loud."
Before a wedding, Wayne encourages the bride and groom to meet with him so they'll know who will be playing the music, and to discuss their vision for their big day. "I listen to all of their requests and encourage them to provide a list of the songs, if any, that they absolutely do not want to hear, along with others that I'm to play only if requested. I then plan the most effective time to use each song they've requested to get the best response. I watch the crowd carefully during the event to make sure I'm reading them correctly and playing just the right song to keep them (and you) happy."
