"Willie was AMAZING to work with throughout the entire process. From our first consultation phone call all the way through the end-of-night announcements on wedding day, Willie was so professional and kind. He responded to my numerous emails in a timely manner and made us feel very confident that everything would go smoothly. He did such a great job timing all of our songs perfectly and creating the exact open dancing vibe we were going for. We are so grateful to Willie for helping to make our wedding day so fun and special for us and all of our guests!"

"DJ Willie has been a DJ at several weddings of friends and family and the experience has been incredible every time. He is committed to providing a personalized music an entertainment experience. His attention to detail is impeccable and begins with his music worksheet. His ability to read the crowd and tailor the music to the mood is second to none, during dancing there wasn't a person sitting down as he was able to captivate the entire crowd of 200 people and got them on their feet. DJ Willie even MC'd our reception and you could definitely tell his level of experience the way he seamlessly integrated humor and character into the very tight and compact schedule. As a member of a team DJ willie was integral to the success of our reception and we cannot recommend him enough for yours!"

"DJ Big Willie Style was the DJ from SGM that handled my wedding! He was so professional, fun, and easy to work with. He very politely asked how we wanted to be introduced, how our bridal party's names were pronounced, etc. prior to our Grand Entrance JUST to make sure he had it all right. Awesome guy, great organization to work with, highly recommend."

“We chose Big Willie Style as our DJ from SGM events and he was AMAZING! He truly listened to what we wanted and created a playlist that not only had our style, but kept people dancing until the end. SGM in general was a pleasure to work with; they always responded quickly and didn’t make us feel pressured into choosing them.”

“To put it simply, Big Willie Style made my wedding dreams come to fruition. I wanted my wedding to be a fun event with people dancing until the very end and he was able to achieve that for us! He played amazing music that was completely our style and kept people dancing. I seriously couldn’t have asked for anything more from our DJ. He was AMAZING!!”

“DJ Big Willie Style from SGM Events (one of the all inclusive DJ options through Abbey Catering) was amazing for our wedding! Right from our initial interview with different DJs, Willie put us at ease, being able to understand and name the types of songs we liked even though we weren’t great at describing it. He mentioned he had DJed at I think on the evening boat cruises between the Catamaran and Bahia, which I was familiar with, so I knew he probably could read crowds well as he said and throw a great party. He was respectful, very responsive, and always calm, confident, and knew exactly how to respond to put us at ease and deliver what we had in mind. We even had some last minute changes to our schedule a couple days ahead of the wedding and from what I understand, most DJs would not be cool with that, but Willie just took things in stride and was able to play a big part in an amazing night for us and everyone there.”

He was also a great MC for the night. He was super easy to work with and responsive. We got a lot of compliments on his work.

So happy he got to be our DJ for the night. We would highly recommend him to anyone!”

“Willie and Romel are an awesome DJ and MC team! They both did a fantastic job, especially adapting to multiple last minute changes and resolving issues on the fly. We were able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the reception with them at the helm. Willie worked closely with our performers (vocalists and musicians) to set up their sound and equipment. Our guests loved the music, which was a great blend of our musical tastes and our older guests’. We all had a great time and would highly recommend them!”

“Big Willie Style and his MC Romel did an exceptional job during our event! Willie played the songs we had requested and added a great choice of music based on our playlist. The music was perfect during the cocktail hour and dinner, too. Willie made sure the music volume was just right throughout the evening so the guests could converse during dinner and then turned up the volume for dancing. Willie and Romel worked well with my activity-packed timeline and really got the guests laughing and involved with the games. We are so glad we chose Willie to DJ our event! Many thanks to everyone at SGM Events! You are the greatest!!”

“The Soultones and DJ Big Willie Style were AWESOME. Our wedding is and will probably continue being the talk of the town and thanks to these two great performers, the music was nonstop bumpin. SGM was easy to work with and responded quickly to all our (myself and my wedding planner’s) emails. A representative from SGM personally came to the initial walk through and both Rebecca from The Soultones and DJ Willie took part in a conference call with our planner and MC to make sure everyone was on the same page. The Soultones were like the icing on the cake to our perfect special day. My husband and I just sat there listening to the band trying to be lost in the music during our busy night. We are so happy we made the decision to hire The Soultones 8 piece band. Best decision of the wedding…well one of them. I wish I could relive in their music over and over again.”

“We had a small window of time to find, choose, review and secure a great DJ for our wedding that was fast approaching in 3 weeks and SGM came through with quick responses to my inquiries, staying in budget and giving us choices of DJ’s that were fantastic. Big Willie Style (our DJ of choice!) was flexable to meet us at the venue last minute, presenting himself professionally and the night of our wedding (which was a fab cocktail party) mixed great music that kept EVERYONE on the dance floor right through to the last song of the night! For Real!! Thank YOU Big Willie and the whole team at SGM (Sleeping Giant Music) our next party…you invited…I mean HIRED!”

(nobody wanted to leave) It was also a pleasure dealing with SGM Events. They were professional and on-point with everything we had in mind. I would most definitely book with SGM Events again and look forward to it.”

“Our experience with SGM was excellent! I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for professional, reliable and in our case a highly skilled DJ. We were lucky enough to choose DJ Big Willie Style. We picked him after listening to his Soundcloud and feeling like he was a great match with our personal music taste, and we were not disappointed. He was professional, friendly, attentive and did his best to play the music we requested, even when the genre was out of his norm… Our guests danced the night away. I gladly give them 5 stars!”

“Willie from SGM Events was our DJ for our wedding on Sept 12th and he did an absolute wonderful job!

My groom and I found SGM Events at the San Diego Bridal Bazaar where they were very smart and handed out sample CDs where each track was a different DJ so you could hear their vibe. After talking to SGM Events and finding out which DJs were available for our date we were very excited to choose Willie after listening to his set.

Their is lots of communication with SGM Events before hand. They definitely have it down to a science and make it very easy on the Bride and Groom which is so greatly appreciated!

Willie had every song I requested which was impressive because I know I had a few weird ones for the ceremony. Once the reception started Willie really shined! I love the changeover and mixing of songs. It is absolutely what differs SGM Events from the rest and makes it not just a person pressing a play button. The array of music for the reception was great as well. While is was sweltering in the non-air conditioned barn at the venue, lots of guests were still busting a move due to Willie’s excellent song choices! Nelly’s “Hot in Here” was definitely an ironic yet fun example!”

Thank you so much for an amazing service! The bride and groom loved his songs.”

“I just worked with DJ Big Willie Style for my wedding in Carlsbad on 7/12/14 and he was fantastic! SGM events is great to work with. They are organized, respond quickly to your questions and are really friendly. I worked with Frankie and Madison a lot to book Willie for my wedding and then met with Willie before the wedding to review songs and what he needed and what I needed. I felt very comfortable working with SGM. On the day of my wedding Willie was amazing. He provided a sound system (mics) for the ceremony and played a song for the recessional then he played music during cocktail hour and of course was a huge hit for the reception dance party. He really felt the crowd and knew just enough of each song to make people happy and keep dancing. I would HIGHLY recommend SGM and DJ Big Willie Style!!!! Thanks!”

Most importantly, he was very cooperative; he did not stop playing the music until the very last person left the dance floor. Again, we are very happy with our experience with SGM Events!”
