Olympic Sound

DJ company Olympic Sound wins brides with personality, professionalism and skills

From providing music as you walk down the aisle, to serenading guests at dinner, and playing the perfect song for that perfect first dance, a DJ plays a huge part in the wedding day. So when it came time to interview Jasmyn Lancinger, owner and one of a few disc jockeys at Kitchener-based Olympic Sound, it was easy to see why brides were raving over the incredible team of DJs at Olympic Sound.

The Olympic Sound team not only acknowledges the importance of the role your DJ plays on the wedding day, but their DJs know how to direct a great stag & doe too. And according to their loyal brides, they’re the first to dig in and help in any way they can, for a truly seamless wedding day.

So, armed with tons of personality, hands-on experience, and high tech equipment, the Olympic Sound DJs are certainly some of our brides’ favourite DJs to check out in The Ring. Let us explain…

From the beginning…

Based out of Kitchener and serving southern Ontario, Olympic Sound sprung up in the summer of 2002. Initially a small—if risky—endeavor, the project survived on the support of friends and family who were willing to give it a shot. And now, the better part of a decade, hundreds of gigs, thousands of smiling people, millions of songs and a lifetime of memories later, this little DJ company has grown to take on a life of its own.

Under the guidance of owner and head DJ, Jasmyn Lancinger, their mission is to bring the highest level of professionalism along with a completely personalized experience. The team at Olympic Sound believes that a good DJ does more than just show up and play tunes.

Dayna Renaud says that when she met with Jasmyn to discuss being the DJ at her March wedding, she immediately knew that the Olympic Sound team would help create the wedding reception that Dayna and her husband dreamed of. “They were so easy to talk to and had great ideas and organization right from our first email,” Dayna tells us. She adds that the Olympic Sound style was “trendy, hip, organized, accountable, and appropriate to the guests and atmosphere of the wedding.”

The team behind the scenes

With a steady increase in business over the years, Olympic Sound has expanded to include a small team of fully trained, professional experts in their field- each with a variety of experiences and expertise. For example, DJs Eric and Neil are technical experts (think: incredible remixes and beat mixing at your reception!). On the other hand, the ladies on the team bring a more feminine touch to the event and are great at reading the mood and emotions of the crowd.

No matter which Olympic Sound team member DJs at your event, you can expect someone who is energetic, helpful (as past clients told The Ring, it’s not uncommon to find them helping the venue staff clear an area for the dance floor) and comes dressed perfectly for your event.

And most importantly, the Olympic Sound DJs truly love what they do. Says Jasmyn, “We love pumping up the party and making sure that everyone is having a great time. It’s very rewarding and we love it.”

Past bride Rebecca Leis says she would recommend Olympic Sound “in a heartbeat.” In fact, Rebecca has hired Olympic Sound three times in the past five years, “They continue to exceed our expectations time and time again! We booked Jasmyn for our Stag & Doe and after we chatted with her for a bit, we were hooked and booked her for our wedding too! At the most recent function, Neil was our DJ… he was also fabulous and was a fantastic MC! Neil was fun, down to earth and really got the crowd going. We would definitely use him again as well!”

While Olympic Sound’s main focus is weddings, they also offer DJ services for the community at corporate events and functions, Christmas parties, fundraisers and charity events for some notable clients such as Manulife Financial and Wilfrid Laurier University, among others. They even do school dances for grades ranging from kindergarten to university because they, “love the young crowd and the energy they bring to the dance floor.” Whatever the event may be, you can be assured that the Olympic Sound DJs will enjoy it thoroughly, “We love being able to participate and make a contribution to the events that are so important and personal to clients and friends.”

Weddings with Olympic Sound…

No need to worry about inadequate sound or the wrong music being played; Olympic Sound boasts of playing a “blend of continuous music by your favourite artists on our professional and reliable sound system.” This includes a music library that spans generations and various styles to please all guests.

There is never a dull moment at a wedding with someone from Olympic Sound as the DJ, and Miranda Bilotta, who had Olympic Sound provide the music for her January wedding ceremony, dinner and dance, could not agree more. “Jasmyn really made the day come together and was very organized,” says Miranda. “She played exactly what we wanted and came up with suggestions to make each part of the day flow perfectly.” Miranda describes Jasmyn as “professional, yet really fun and outgoing. Olympic Sound has a great variety of music that would suit every style you could imagine, and they really know how to keep a crowd going.”

The team at Olympic Sound are very accessible for contact, and will promptly returns messages, which is important in the wedding industry. How interactive they are at your wedding is up to the bride and groom – they can make their presence known, or be virtually invisible. Throughout the whole planning process, Miranda says that the Olympic Sound team was extremely professional and organized. “They made us feel really comfortable, like hanging out with a friend who happens to ‘know their stuff’ about music and the whole wedding industry. They are really outgoing and fun… They were available up until the day of the wedding through phone and email… And met with us to make sure they had everything just right for the big day.”

Cool Extras: The Mini-Studio Photobooth

Our absolute favourite option at Olympic Sound is the Mini-Studio Photobooth. The difference with this photobooth is that it is run by a real photographer. The team at Olympic Sound explains, “There are no foot pedals, no timers — just a fun, friendly photographer to interact with your guests and snap the shutter at just the right moment to capture the crazy. It’s like stepping into your own studio — anything goes, and anything can happen.”

The Mini-Studio Photobooth uses real studio lighting and professional DSLR cameras, making it an ideal keepsake option for albums, enlargements, posters, and of course: Facebook. We LOVE this idea

Stag & Does with an Olympic touch

Olympic Sound also offers DJ services for stag & does at a discounted price, and much like the wedding, their involvement can be minute or monumental depending on what the couple wants. They take requests, and can host interactive games such as crown and anchor and the toonie toss, while keeping in mind the goal to have fun and raise money. The Olympic Sound DJs say that they love to create a fun party so that the guests will stay and the bride and groom will turn a profit! They also like to get to know the crowd, and love seeing them again at the wedding!

Jasmyn blew away our wedding day DJ expectations!! She was so easy to work with and is one of the nicest professionals we have ever met. She worked with us to incorporate music clips into our speeches and was also very honest when it came to song selections and other ideas. It meant the world to us that as our guests danced their hearts out to the music, Jasmyn was right behind her gear singing along and dancing right beside us :)

We had Olympic Sound DJ our Doe n Doe, as well as our wedding and they were amazing!! From the first meeting, Jasmyn was very easy going and not pushy at all (we had experienced that with other DJ services we had looked into) Our Doe (DJ'd by Eric!) was an absolute blast, turned into a great party and from the compliments we received from that event, we were very excited for how they would turn it up for the wedding. Music coordination for a wedding day can be stressful - the prelude, to the processional, registry signing to the reception entrances, first dance etc etc - and we were pretty detailed in our song choices, also asking for certain songs cued at a certain moment. Our nerves were climbing as the weeks drew closer, wondering if everything was going to go as smoothly as we wanted, and Jasmyn assured us they're professionals - they got this! And they absolutely did!! We had requested Eric from the Doe to DJ the wedding, and he was just incredible. Everything was on point with how we wanted it to go, it couldn't have gone any smoother. And the party the night turned into was just an absolute blast! Thanks again Jasmyn and Eric for your part in making our day so memorable for us and our guests! We would ABSOLUTELY recommend Olympic Sound for your wedding!! You won't be disappointed!! Much love, Amy & Megan

Jasmyn and her team were outstanding at several of our company events, and she really knows how to read a crowd and play the music that will appeal to everyone! They are great to work with, and really enjoy seeing everyone have a good time. I would use them again in a heartbeat!

Our teams have had the pleasure of working several events every year with Jasmyn and her teams. Brides, Grooms, and their guests clearly enjoy themselves with the carefully planned but fun approach Olympic Sound takes at every event. We were especially impressed by the amount of tailored music and experiences Olympic took with keeping the music and mood going strong all night long. Too often we see DJ services which come with a standard playlist, pre-mixed tracks, or complete disregard for their audiences tastes... but not Olympic. Our firm always recommends Olympic Sound when we find out that one of our brides is still looking for a good DJ service. Keep up the amazing work!

I've had the privilege of working with Jasmyn a few times now and am always thrilled when I see her set up at a wedding reception as I know I will be getting great photos from the crowd! Jasmyn always keeps the party going and can easily play to all crowds. She truly makes my job as a wedding photographer easy. Thanks Jasmyn!

Jasmyn at Olympic Sound was a pleasure to work with and did a fantastic job at our wedding! She was professional from our very first meeting and easy to reach throughout the whole planning process. She was punctual, personable, and diligent in making sure that the music and services she provided were exactly what we wanted. Her energy was upbeat and fun the entire night and she kept the party going from start to finish. We were so grateful to have Jasmyn be a part of our day and received numerous compliments on what a great job she had done following the event.

We were married in July 2012 and Olympic Sound did the music for our outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour, and dance. Our wedding was in Kitchener but we live in British Columbia. Jasmyn made it so easy to plan the wedding from a distance. She is pleasant, adaptable and understanding of nervous brides! On our wedding day Neil was professional, efficient, and friendly. He did an outstanding job to make it all seamless. This team really makes it all so easy, which we appreciated during such a busy time. We recommend Olympic Sound for weddings. When you are planning a wedding and have so many things to do, it is wonderful to have one less thing to worry about.

Just had our wedding on the weekend and had Olympic Sound as our Dj service. We were not disappointed. Dj Neil was absolutely amazing. His timing on our songs was perfect, and when the reception started, he knew within minutes the kind of music that would get our guests up and moving. He was so willing to deal with the continuous requests from our guests and was an amazingly nice guy. His professionalism and kind demeanor just added to his charm. We will recommend Olympic Sound and Neil to anyone who needs a Dj service in the future.

Jasmyn is an awesome DJ with an amazing personality. Peter and I were married January 30, 2010 and we knew right away that we wanted to use Jasmyn. We had heard great things about her and when we first met to start planning, she lived up to all of our expectations and more. She is extremely professional, organized, and most important really fun and outgoing. She is easy to talk to and was available throughout the whole planning process answering questions and providing suggestions by email and phone. She was really into making sure she knew exactly how we wanted things to be. On the actual wedding day, Jasmyn played music for our ceremony, reception and dance. She did an awesome job the whole day. She had perfect timing, perfect selection, and she really knew how to keep the party going strong. It is really important to have someone playing music at your wedding who truly wants your day to be exactly what you wanted. Jasmyn definitely gave us that, and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
