About The Company

NC Sounds was established in 2005 by owner/operator Nick Chavez. Initially a success in Springfield MO, we now operate out of our native Kansas City.The NC Sounds team has morphed over the years but currently consists of Nick, his fiancé Kara, and crew.

About Nick

I was probably born a music lover thanks to my mom's musical talents and influence. Thanks to her, I grew up experiencing many genres of music. I enjoyed singing in choirs and playing trumpet. I began DJing back in 1999 when a musical friend introduced me to the art. I was hooked! Over the years I have been able to spin in nightclubs in KC and in Springfield. I also spent a few years working for a couple big companies and learned a lot from my time with them. But I soon came to disagree with their business model. Sadly, services with multiple DJ's that work many events at once are interested in quantity and not quality. I feel clients derserve a DJ that considers their day to be as important as they do! I got tired of seeing people in the market for a DJ become a date and a dollar amount. So I felt the need to create my own client focused service. NC Sounds is dedicated to treating each client and their event as a unique celebration that fits their style. This philosophy has led me to achieving 100% customer satisfaction. Why risk the success of your event on any other DJ service? See what others have said.


Nick's DJ service was great! He is very professional and takes his work seriously. Several of my wedding guests told me how impressed they were with the service and music. Nick was very good about playing requested songs from guests, and songs I had requested before hand. Nick went above and beyond to help make our night memorable and enjoyable!

Nick did an awesome job at our exchanges. He always did a great job of keeping the party going, playing the latest and greatest songs. If you're looking for a DJ, Nick's your man!

Wedding Packages

We offer, hands down, the best value in DJ entertainment for your special event, and we have an easy-to-understand pricing structure with absolutely no hidden fees.

When shopping for a DJ, price is often the first question people ask about. We understand that planning any type of event is expensive and time consuming. We also understand that you need to compare prices in order to get an idea for your budget. Our rates vary depending upon the date, location, necessary equipment, and prep time required.

Generally speaking, professional DJ's charge between $100-150/hr for private events and $800+ for weddings (which require much more planning and prep time). Anything less is not considered professional by most DJ associations and will be sub-standard in some way or ways. Beware of DJ's that cut corners with any of the following:

- cheap, unreliable equipment with no backup system
- a limited music selection
- poor sound quality (imagine trying to dance to music you can barely hear or missing toasts/announcements due to a bad mic)
- messy setups that can bring down the venue's appearance you worked hard to create
- lack of experience (which means an unpolished, possibly sloppy presentation for your very special event).

All these potential event ruiners can be avoided with NC Sounds. And even if you don't hire us, we encourage everyone to ask questions to be sure your DJ can deliver a professional product. Remember you will get what you pay for!
