The Best in Charleston!    posted 4/11/2014 (updated 4/12/2014)

I cannot rave enough about our experience working with EPIC Charleston! From our first inquiry email to the last song of the night, Lucas took exceptional care of us. The management and organization of EPIC is phenomenal and I always felt as though my wedding was a priority. Beyond the logistics side of things, these guys know how to throw a killer party that is tailored specifically to you and your guests. Lucas knew what we wanted even before we did and he kept the dance floor packed all night! If you are looking to take your wedding to the next level and create a night that won't soon be forgotten, hit these guys up right now. From one bride to another, it will be the single best decision you make!

The DJ that MADE my reception EPIC!    posted 4/9/2014 (updated 4/10/2014)

The most important thing about your reception is the music. So don't skimp on money here. This is where you need to spend money. Not on flowers & centerpieces.

When you want a DJ who will make your reception THE reception that everyone will be talking about for years - go to Epic Charleston. Stephen Darby was my DJ for my reception and it was the BEST decision I made for my whole reception.

All of my guests were up and dancing. Stephen kept the dance floor full all night. He was so easy to work with. He also did uplighting in my reception room and it really made the room transform for the night.

He made necessary announcements, threw in some mash ups, and made the night memorable for all. All of our guests have said that it was the best party they have ever been to. You are in the BEST hands if you hire Epic Charleston. Don't go anywhere else.

Top notch DJ!    posted 1/17/2014 (updated 1/18/2014)

Music is very important to my wife and I, and we wanted to be sure we gave ALL of our guests a great time when it came to our reception music. Looking back, going with DJ Lucas of Epic Charleston was one of the best decisions we made for our reception. We were married on Jan. 4th, and already I have had several friends & family personally reach out to me and say great things about the music. Most of all, people just talk about how much FUN they had, and I know that Lucas was a HUGE part of that. He did a wonderful job with the flow of the reception, making the introductions as well as the transitions between first dances and toasts feel as if it was seamless.

For those that really do want a great DJ, I will also say that DJ Lucas is just that - he does not simply play songs one after the other like a basic playlist, he actually mixes songs together and takes the reception to another level because people love the uniqueness of what they are hearing! It's not just like you have a radio, you have a DJ that knows what he is doing! I could not recommend him more, EPIC Charleston is one hell of a DJ company - 10 out of 10.

Simply THE best!!    posted 5/6/2013


Having a great DJ was one of our top priorities! As someone who LOVES to dance, it was important to me to find a DJ who would keep me on the dance floor the entire night. I am happy to say that Nick from Creative Sound did just that. He played all of our recommendations, but also was able to read the crowd and decide the best fit music to keep the party going. Lucas and Nick are incredibly organized and efficient at what they do...we knew we were in good hands from start to finish. After our wedding, so many of our wedding guests have commented about the awesome music played during our cocktail hour and reception. We have Creative Sound to thank for that!! We highly recommend Creative Sound!! This company is an absolutely pleasure to work with!!

The BEST DJ around!    posted 5/1/2013

Lucas Wade at Creative Sound was the best DJ I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He was charismatic and entertained our guests with a wonderful variety of music. There was not a dull moment once the music started playing. Lucas even worked with my cousin to incorporate some Frank Sinatra solos throughout the night.

LOOK NO FURTHER!    posted 10/19/2012

We had Lucas for our wedding this October and he was absolutely amazing! He and the rest of the staff have so much experience with weddings, that I felt comfortable enough to let him do his own thing. It was such a relief to not worry about what music he was going to play, or how he was going to get the crowd excited. I had enough to worry about, and it was great to check one thing off of the list!

Some brides I know felt the need to prepare a complete song list for their DJ to play, in order to ensure that they would play the right music. Although that is certainly an option with Lucas, it was such a breath of fresh air to just trust a dj enough to read the crowd and keep everyone on the dancefloor on his own. Creative Sound Events gives you a very detailed flow chart to fill out, and Lucas followed it perfectly, with the right amount of announcements, etc. Overall, he was one of the best wedding DJ's we have ever seen,at THE BEST price, and all of our guests agreed. Look no further, ladies! :)

Ridiculusssssss!!    posted 12/19/2011

Unbelieveable!- Lucas has an unreal mix of funk and chillaxed attitude- he knows how to work a crowd and handle last minute musts. He couldn't have been easier to work with, great communication, quick response and on the spot delivered! No instruction needed... we just asked them to keep the crowd dancing... request was more than fulfilled. Clean, fun, awesome sound quality, top of the line equipment, song choice was on point, handling of requests- so good, and keeping the crowd energized without wiping them out... Everyone danced the night away from teens to grandparents!! We were all on such a high and pure joy and excitement that we ended up in the pool by the end of the night.... December wedding!! -Woah. We wished we could have had hours more. I cant sing high enough praises. At the end of the night I had multiple questions as to who the DJ company was - some future weddings are now trying to switch over to creative sound and the venue has put him top of the list for recomendations. Afforadable, on spot, true to his word... bottom line- they get it!!

Awesome DJ!    posted 12/6/2011

Creative Sound was awesome for my wedding! He played absolutely everything that I wanted and then some. Everyone had so much fun that night and we got so many compliments about the DJ. Creative Sound is also extremely affordable in relation to other DJs. He came with his whole set up (that was so awesome you couldn't even hear the wedding taking place next door to our venue) and it was just the best!!

Photo Booth    posted 10/6/2013

We had creative sound for our DJ at our welcome party and also as our photo booth at the wedding. They did a great job and one of the highlights of my wedding was watching my nieces and nephews taking photos at the photo booth. My little cousin is obsessed with pirates and wore the pirate hat prop and beard the whole evening. Thank you for all your help in making our wedding weekend a great success!

Awesome DJ!    posted 10/6/2013

Lucas was from beginning to end a professional and so lovely to work with. He played every song on our list and never once said he didn't have a song or deny a request. He also kept the party going throughout our reception.

There was never a lull or inappropriate music choice, and if I had it to do all over again I would choose Creative Sound for our event. If you hire them you will have one less thing to worry about on your wedding day...music will be handled! :)

Rachel & Dave's Wedding at Wild Dunes Resort, SC    posted 10/6/2013

There are not enough wonderful words in the dictionary to use and express my gratitude of Creative Sounds. We were wanting to get married out of town in South Carolina and found Wild Dunes Resort to be the perfect fit for a ceremony & reception. Lucky for us, Wild Dunes had a list of "preferred vendors" & Creative Sounds was #1 for music. Of course we HAD to call the #1 pick since everyone that has used them has had a pleasant experience. From the first phone call made to Creative Sounds to their expertise at the wedding, they were a 10 out of 10 in every category I could come up with. They were extremely friendly and willing and able to help create a wedding ceremony & reception that was one to keep our guests raving over for weeks and months following our wedding. The energy in the room up upbeat and there was not one second of a dull moment. Having experienced their services, my husband and I knew right away why they were the #1 preferred vendor. Not only did we use them for music for our ceremony and reception, but also for up lighting (which set the PERFECT mood in the ballroom) & their high-end photo booth (which was a complete hit!). If I knew then what I know now, I still would make the phone call to Creative Sounds and they would hands down be OUR #1 pick.

Lucas and Nick were GREAT!    posted 8/2/2013

this was the best decision I could have made. these guys were GREAT! Nick had people on the dance floor the ENTIRE reception. he even re-played a song at the end because I couldn't dance when it came on the first time. they are very professional and also very good looking :) I didn't give them a specific list of songs to play/not to play and they did a wonderful job feeling the atmosphere and playing what the crowd wanted. everyone told me they had a great time dancing. these guys really know what they are doing and I definitely recommend them to anyone! I LOVE YOU NICK!!!!

MUST PICK CREATIVE SOUND!    posted 7/31/2013

Music was our number one priority for our wedding. The DJ sets the tone for the wedding/ reception and we could not be happier with our decision to use Lucas and Creative Sound!
Lucas impressed us with his professionalism from the beginning. He was quick to respond to emails and proactive in generating ideas to make our day special. He arrived hours before the ceremony to set up and was friendly with family and guests.

My husband and I wanted to edit a song for our First Dance. Creative Sound had the new song perfectly edited in a timely manner so we could practice our dance!

He kept our guests happy and dancing ALL NIGHT LONG! No one wanted the party to end! Our family and friends STILL cannot stop raving about how much fun they had and specifically mention our DJ, Lucas.

I wish I had another party planned so I could hire Lucas again! Absolutely incredible DJ.

Creative sound/epic charleston are phenomenal!!    posted 7/29/2013

Lucas and Nick are the absolute best wedding DJs in charleston hands down. They are the sole reason our wedding was such a blast and they seriously kept the party going all night. Excellent ability to sense the crowds personality and choose music accordingly. Didn't have to worry about them playing weird or inappropriate music because it was so well mixed to please everyone in the crowd. They do a good job of mixing it up so everyone has a good time and overall are super easy to work with and are very professional. Lots of fun too. My husband and I would book them again over and over again. Easy decision. Worth every penny if you want great music.

highly recommend dj lucas and creative sound    posted 7/18/2013

creative sound did an amazing job at my wedding - they put me completely at ease, and kept everyone on the dance floor all night long. you know it's a great party when the dance floor is absolutely packed until the very end of the reception. dj lucas was such a pleasure to work with... he helped keep the night moving smoothly, played music to appeal to everyone at the reception, and was a total sport when my dad accidentally threw a plastic axe at him during his speech (we brought a lot of extra props for our photo booth!). oh, they also managed our photo booth which was an absolute blast. top quality and great value. couldn't recommend them more.

So much fun!    posted 7/2/2013

Our reception and ceremony ran flawlessly!! Nick was our DJ and he was on point with everything. I wouldn't have changed a single thing. The music was fun and exactly what we wanted! I had so many people tell me that they hadn't had that much fun at a wedding in a very long time! I think Nick was a huge part of that!!

Lucas from Creative Sound will keep your guests dancing all night long!    posted 6/27/2013

We hired Lucas at Creative Sound for our June, 2013 wedding at Magnolia Plantation. In short, we highly recommend him for your wedding or any important occasion. Lucas did exactly what we asked him to do--- he kept our guests on the dance floor the entire evening. People LOVED the music. We never had an empty dance floor and our reception 3.5 hours!! Additionally, Lucas is professional, he made our announcements exactly as we asked him to, and he artfully dodged music requests from our guests that were on our "do not play" list. One suggestion, make sure you go through your "must play" list in detail. The only snafu was that Lucas played the right song by the wrong musician for our first dance. He immediately corrected it, however-- so there was no harm, no foul. He also accidentally called me by my last name when he introduced us for speeches. But again, he recovered nicely. I have a first name for a last name so it is a mistake almost everyone who meets me makes. That all said, we loved Lucas, and so did our guests. He had the dance floor packed throughout the reception and that is exactly what we wanted. We highly recommend him for your special event. He will make sure your guests have a great time and will play a variety of music to cater to all ages and tastes.
