For years, Killer Whale Audio has performed for wedding receptions, reunions, conventions, Christmas, birthday, anniversary, and virtually any other kind of party you can think of, all with one goal in mind: To provide the best, most professional job we are capable of, so that every client is completely satisfied.
We pride ourselves on never having performed at an event where we were hesitant to send our follow-up evaluation form. Though many gladly offer, we choose, rather than troubling our past clients with contacts for references, to send these forms. It seems less bothersome, and offers us a chance to find out what worked, and get it in writing! Though not everyone returns our form, here are a few comments:
Aloha Ed! We
worked together at Sunriver on many occasions! I was "Captain
Shaun" with Michelle DiTullio back in Sunriver doing weddings. I
hope this message finds you well! I'm back home in Hawai'i (O'ahu more
specifically). I work at a private country club dealing with events
and weddings now. I had a run in with a DJ the
other day and thought of you! Sure made me miss the days of when you
Emcee'd an event! Our client
wasn't happy with the DJ they booked. The DJ didn't even listen or pay
attention to the playlist requests! I had an "a-ha"
moment. I thought to myself, "Ed would never do that."
Your professionalism is what I have gauged DJ's by since I made it back
home. I guess that's the
difference between Hawaii and Oregon. Just
wanted to write in and say hello! Hope you're doing well!
Sincerest Wishes, "Captain" Shaun Myers, Banquet & Events Coordinator, Mid Pacific Country Club
"Ed was the perfect piece to our "Wedding Puzzle". We had to plan our wedding from out-of-state, but Ed made it effortless. He was always open and available to meeting us when we were in town or taking our phone calls and emails. He not only made our reception our favorite night of our lives, but also provided quality attention and service to our ceremony needs. Our guests were used to the typical "wedding dj", but kept questioning us during the night; "Where did you find this DJ?". Ed makes Killer Whale Audio a must-have at your event!"
- David & Kelly Mathis
"Selecting the right MC/DJ for our daughter's wedding was much more important than we ever thought. With Ed as our MC, our event flowed smoothly, without the need of programs of formal agenda. Ed's music selection was perfect for the varied ages of our guests, everyone was on the dance floor. His professionalism and his willingness to assist in the planning of our event was invaluable. Ed knew exactly what we wanted and he delivered!

- Taylor & Courtney Blackburn
"When we were planning our wedding, we asked around about who the best DJ was. We got several responses but Ed Whale was the one that everyone seemed to know and like. After our first call to Ed, we immediately learned why he was so highly recommended. He was a true professional and went out of his way to make sure my wife and I got exactly what we wanted out of a DJ for our wedding. We felt so confident with Ed and never had to worry about how our reception would unfold. If you use Ed as your DJ, the reception and dancing will be the least of your concerns. Thank you so much for your help, Ed. We had a blast!"

When it came time to plan our own wedding, it went without saying the we wanted Ed as our DJ as well! We contacted him and were very pleased he was available for our date! His family owned & run business is a pleasure to use! My husband & I were able to work out special arrangements with them that helped out a lot. We also had a couple of really special surprises planned for our party like a video and moment of silence dedication to my late brother. Ed helped facilitate all of it and made sure our special plans happened without any stress! We had a group of very energetic friends and family that ranged in age. Ed was able to grab the mood of the crowd & keep everyone dancing the whole night! He is incredibly talented at what he does & very organized. We live out of state from our wedding destination & we were able to organize everything via phone and internet without any problems! Ed kept all of our reception organized with all of our special events like the cake cutting, 1st dance, mother/son dances on track amidst the chaos! We were looking forward to Ed's DJ service at our reception as well as our ceremony & were not disappointed. The product he delivers is well worth the money! Ed - Thank you so much for working with us and making our day so memorable for everyone! You rock & do an outstanding job! Thanks again!"

We really appreciated meeting with Ed a few days in advance, where we worked our kinks in my wedding timeline and discussed what type of music we wanted. Ed incorporated the songs we suggested and did an excellent job of being unobtrusive but still directing the progress of the event. Everyone was having such a great time dancing, we asked him to stay on extra. Friends of ours said they were sore the next day from dancing so much. And even the priest got on the dance floor! Ed was also excellent in accommodating my dad's musical needs. Thank you!"
- Dave & Colleen Zori
"Ed, We could not have made a better choice that having you as our DJ! You were so sensitive & intuitive about our style; really in tune with what we like after just one meeting!

And, the non-obtrusive, yet effective manner that he brings while m.c.'d the reception...keeping the evening moving along and making the guests aware of what was going to happen next. Ed was a pleasure to work with, and his contribution to our wedding made the event even more perfect!"

- Angela & Corey Sutton
"We have been to many weddings where the DJ did not read the crowd at all - and the reception suffered. So we were both a little nervous about choosing the right DJ. From the very beginning, Ed was fantastic. He answered all of our questions, helped with song selections, and made us feel very special. When it came time for the big day, it could not have gone any better! Ed was a perfect DJ, everything ran so smoothly and we got so many comments about what a great job he did. I would recommend Ed for any event - but from personal experience I would say the choosing him to be the DJ for your wedding would take one stressful decision off the list for good! He is Amazing! Ed - thank you so much for making our wedding so wonderful! We feel so blessed that you were a part of the most important days of our lives! We couldn't have asked for anything more - you were FABULOUS! Thanks so much!"
- Steve & Laura Condren
"Ed - We could never have asked for a better DJ & MC! Our first meeting was wonderful - I completely trusted your ability after that moment. You had wonderful reception suggestions from years of experience that we appreciated so much! You diligently followed all our requests and kept the reception "events" flowing so smoothly - without you they wouldn't have at all. You gave us the most incredible reception and we have heard dozens of times since our wedding how awesome the music & dancing was. It truly does make or break a wedding - and you made ours one that will always be remembered. We are still so sad the night ever had to end. You set a high standard for any DJ & Audio company. Sincere thanks! You're awesome! We will always recommend and stand behind you & your company! - Two very happy newlyweds,"
- Cory & Lindsay Hoffbuhr

Mr. Ed Whale is the real deal when it comes to DJ's. His presence at the reception and his knowledge of the business is unmatched. When we hired Killer Whale Audio, there wasn't a doubt in my mind that we would be satisfied with our decision. If you want to rest assured that you hired the right DJ for your occasion, then go with Killer Whale Audio. Everyone loved you! You made things roll ...and rock! So many people in Bend and surrounding areas have asked me for your contact information for their future parties and special occasions big and small. Thanks again for your phenomenal work and paying attention to every last detail. The sound through the ceremony was so clear and the reception music...Wow! You are the perfect answer to any "crazy, confused, or overwhelmed bride and groom." Your suggestions and help with all my "custom" requests and ideas really helped. Thank you."

Stephen & Hillary Moor
"From the first time we met Ed and his family, they were eager to answer any questions we had. They were very professional, easy going & a total blast to work with. We spent an hour and a half on the phone before we even discussed if we were interested in using him. Ed was eager to spend that time with me on the phone & I knew after that he was in it for the love of his job. Ed was great at the wedding & reception. He thought of songs, that we hadn't, to fit every moment. THANKS FOR ROCKIN' ASPEN HALL ED!!!"

You went above and beyond, all of our friends and family commented on how receptive you were to their requests and as you could probably see nobody wanted to stop dancing! We were absolutely clueless when it came to cutting the cake, and thanks to your guidance we got through it and even made it look like we knew what we were doing in the pictures! If anyone ever questions whether or not to use you they can take it from us - the party will not stop with Killer Whale and I can't imagine that there is another DJ our there as personable, professional and accessible that truly is interested in what we and our guests wanted!!

Ed Whale's Killer performance for us is what allowed our guests to have a marvelous time and for us to simply enjoy our guests and our daughter and her new husband at their reception. The cost of Killer Whale's services might seem spendy at first, but the peace of mind Killer Whale provides is worth every single penny we spent. Cut out something else to stay on budget, but not Killer Whale! The success of our party depended on a fabulous DJ. I would pay the price again in a heartbeat to get the same job. Ed was fabulous!"

- Nathan & Julie Vandersluis
"When preparing for our wedding, the most important part for us was hiring the right DJ. Our friends love to dance & have a good time and we've been to so many weddings where the DJ just wasn't that great. In our minds, the DJ makes or breaks the reception. In our case, Ed could not have made our reception any more fun. Every single person from my 1 year old nephew to the 70+ year olds thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The dancing began before we even welcomed anyone onto the dance floor & continued through the last dance. There was never a time when everyone walked off the floor at the same time. As a matter of fact, the only problem throughout then night was sore feet and finding a place to dance. When people talk about our wedding, the first thing they say is how AMAZING our DJ was. I am so glad we hired Ed and Killer Whale Audio. Thank you for making our wedding a memorable one, and in a good way."
- Skip & Lynn Fairlee
"From the moment we first contacted Killer Whale Audio to begin our wedding planning, to the end of our reception, Ed Whale was professional, thoughtful and courteous. He listened to our thoughts and ideas, gave suggestions of his own, and ultimately put together a list of the best songs that our guests danced all night to! We have had numerous requests for his song list and his contract information because he was so fun and amazing! Ed helped to make our wedding unforgettable and we would highly recommend his services to anyone. Ed, You are the MAN! Our wedding reception was amazing and everyone was raving about what a great D.J. you were. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding so special and unforgettable. Ryan and I had a great time and we want you to know just how much we appreciate you!"
- Ryan & Rebecca Brady
"Dear Ed - Chad & I wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for truly making our wedding day memorable. Your music selection & style fit perfectly with our day. All of our guests made comments like "Wow! Where did you find such a great DJ?" or "This is the first wedding I've been to where the DJ played the best music." We couldn't thank you enough & please use our testimonial because we were so pleased, actually thrilled with the spectacular job you did! You did a fantastic job & we wanted to say that we appreciate your style & professionalism! Best wishes to you, thanks & all our best!"
- Chad & Becky Rorabaugh

So - thank you for making our night so incredibly memorable!"
- Brian & Marjon Faivre

So many people asked who did our music. Everything was perfect."

"Chris and I had a few ideas for songs we wanted played, but for the most part we didn't feel the need to be too involved in the music selection. Ed did a fantastic job. He kept everything moving smoothly and had almost the entire crowd on their feet all night long. The wedding was more than we could have hoped for and a large part of that was due to Ed. People are still telling me how good the music was. Thanks Ed!!!"
- Chris & Megan Goodson
"Ed was an incredible DJ. He was very organized and kept the ceremony, dinner, and reception running smoothly. The dance floor was never empty the entire night. His choice in song selections were perfect and pleased all of our guests. At first the price seemed like a lot, but, you get what you pay for and the price was definitely worth it! Out of everything from our wedding, we have gotten the most compliments about our DJ. I would definitely recommend Ed to anyone wanting to have a great party...I know we did. Thank you Ed!"
- Cory & Stephanie Penselin
"Thank you so much Ed for being an integral part of our fabulous wedding. Everything was perfect with regards to the music, from the ceremony to the reception. I can't believe how packed the dance floor was the entire time! I kept trying to sit down, but every song was so good that I just kept on dancing. Thanks, again Ed, we had such a blast! And everyone raved about you !! Thank you!"
- Aaron & Krissy Yetman
"Ed Whale's reputation preceded him as being "the best" and indeed he was. Not only was he professional and very courteous, he was also a lot of fun. The dance floor was full the whole evening! Thank you Ed for making our wedding reception a night we will never forget. You are the Best!"
- Misha & Daron Kirchmeier
"Hi, Ed! I feel you were a partner in making our wedding magnificent. You are a master at your craft and we thank you greatly. Our guests have raved about you. Thank you so much! With great respect and gratitude,"
- Darcy & Chris Bridges
"Everything was perfect and we could not have asked for anymore from Ed. What a professional as well as an absolute delight to work with. We have had more people comment that it was the most fun wedding that they have ever been to, mainly because of the dancing. The dance floor was packed all night...from the very first song. As a catering director for eighteen years planning weddings & special events...I know quality, reliability and customer service. Ed is #1 in all categories. Would I recommend Killer Whale Audio to others? Always have, always will. Thank you so much."
- James & Julie McFarlane
*personal note: For years, I've known and worked with Julie Bickford (now McFarlane) in her capacity as Sunriver Resort's catering director. Knowing in her position, she sees many DJ's, I consider it an incredible honor to be the one asked to perform for her very own wedding. Congratulations, and thank you so much, James & Julie!
"Ed Whale of Killer Whale Audio not only was an interactive, organized & a wonderful DJ, but calmed me down, and really made our wedding a hit. He had everyone up & dancing for hours & the music during the ceremony was incorporated like a professional stage production. You were responsive, professional, fun and well worth your fee. I will definitely use Killer Whale Audio in the future for other events. Thank you so much for the wonderful music and support during our wedding. You did a great job and kept us both so calm despite a little rain. You're the best. Thanks again!"
- Adam & Cheryl Hawes
"Ed absolutely made the reception as great as it was. He did a great job reading the crowd and keeping everyone of the dance floor without wearing them out. We wanted a wedding reception that was fun and everyone has told us it was a blast. I owe a lot of that to Ed. He was also great to work with. I was continuously impressed with Ed's attention to the detail, his promptness, he was easy to work with and open to ideas. I found the price to be reasonable and fair, and have already recommended Killer Whale Audio - you were great! Thanks Ed!"
- Aaron Bayne & Lisa Hodgers Bayne
"Ed you were wonderful, Very courteous, did everything we agreed to and we would recommend Killer Whale Audio!!! We were satisfied with the price, performance and value - don't change a thing - I think Ed was perfect."
- Adam & Katie Reese
"We'll keep this brief: There can simply be no debate about it: If you're getting married - or having some other special event or simply a great party - in Central Oregon & environs, you must arrange to have DJ Ed & Killer Whale Audio play. Our wedding had one of the most Heavin', Happy & Full dance floors of all time! Thanks so much, Ed! You were so kind, patient and offered us great advice. Your music selection was perfect, you had a song for everyone. In fact, people keep asking us for a copy of all the music you played! We hope to have the opportunity to work with you again. Best Wishes!"
- Amal & Darcy Anderson Patel
"Killer Whale Audio was the "golden thread" that wove through the entire event helping to make the wedding more than we could ever have imagined! Thank you Ed for being part of our wedding."
- Shirley Anderson, Mother of the Bride, Anderson/Patel Wedding
"We were pleased with the quality of Killer Whale Audio's work, satisfied with the price, performance and value and would definitely recommend to others. They did everything agreed to and Ed was very courteous. For this type of corporate event, I wouldn't change a thing. Killer Whale Audio was responsive to our needs before, during and after the job. Thanks Ed !"
- Shamus Lynski, Oregon Trial Lawyers Association's corporate event
"A BIG thank you to Killer Whale Audio for makeing our wedding a success! Start to finish everything was handled beautifully."
- Karma & Royce David
"Ed Whale was referred to us by my other former clients. He exceeded our expectations! We wanted everyone dancing all night and his selections of music made sure that happened! We did not have one thing to worry abut with him in charge. In fact, we even extended him an extra hour! He also stayed true to our list of music we did not want played. He made sure to check with us first before playing anything from genres we did not prefer. He is one of the most genuinely kind and upbeat people we have ever met and it was an honor to have him DJ our wedding! Thank you, Ed!"
- Joe & Jenni Haynes
"Ed and Killer Whale Audio are fantastic! We wanted a good time to be had by all and Ed served it on a sliver platter. We had more compliments on the D.J. services than you could dream. Thank you for being so thorough. Honestly, you kept our party rolling at a great pace. We had people dancing that I would have never guessed. We loved it all and so did our guests. Thanks for the good time and fond memories! Sincerely,"
- Rena & Jim Rabe
"Dear Ed: Thanks so much for making Rena's wedding a fun party. The music really got everyone up to "Boogie" which is what we had hoped for. No one wanted to leave - including me! Hope to see you at the ranch at another function this summer. Thanks again,"
- Donna Schlitt (Mother of the Bride, Rena)
"We were very pleased with Killer Whale Audio, the pace & selection of songs reflected our reception, and we will definitely recommend you to anyone needing a DJ. Regarding the cost, obviously weddings are very expensive, but we were very happy with the performance and the price we paid. Don't change a thing."
- Zachary & Katherine Bromert
"Killer Whale Audio, specifically Ed, went above and beyond any expectations we had. There was constant communication to make sure that we had the set up and the perfect mix of music for our wedding. The music for the ceremony and then the reception were perfectly mixed and Ed helped keep everything moving and on-time with his MC-ing. We would highly recommend Ed and Killer Whale Audio - it really helped make our wedding flawless and special. Ed's timing was great, there were no pauses or anything the entire night - it was perfect! Ed was a pleasure to work with & we are still receiving compliments on our music & DJ!"
- Chris & Jessie Wells
"Ed was absolutely wonderful with our wedding. Not only did he do an excellent job DJing, he was so thorough in his preparations about what we wanted and didn't want that I was reminded of other aspects of the wedding/ceremony that hadn't thought about. All the pre-wedding work Ed does will make anyone's big day a success! Your service was wonderful, thank you!"
- Casey & Inga Brock
"Ed was amazing!! He incorporated all of our musical tastes and had such superb music selection for our wedding which made for an incredible evening. Ed was extremely polite, courteous and professional, giving the wedding the direction it needed without taking anything away from our enjoyment. Ed came highly recommended by friends and we now know why. (Having been to multiple weddings with various forms of entertainment) I do not think our wedding would have been as awesome or memorable without the work of Ed! Ed even stayed an extra hour because we were having so much fun. To anyone considering Ed as a disc jockey, he's amazing and I'm sure he can make your event as special as he made ours. The wedding wouldn't have been as smooth without him, Ed was definitely the "coordinator" of the day. P.S. We have received all of the praise from our guests regarding Ed...and it is unreal...EVERYBODY said they have never been to a wedding where they danced so much or had such a great time (REALLY) Ed is fabulous. It puts other to shame. Thanks again,"
- Sean & Ruth Arnold
"We we happy with everything! Ed was courteous and responsive to our needs before, during and after our wedding. Everything was done very professionally - don't change a thing!"
- Kelly & Leia Hollis
"We were so pleased with Killer Whale Audio at our wedding. The performance and value were right on. We didn't have to worry about a thing with Ed handling the microphone, audio and music selections. He exceeded our expectations! Thanks Ed!"
- Kelly & Damon Marty
"We would definitely recommend Killer Whale Audio to others! Ed was a pleasure to work with! Great music and great job all around! The bride and groom walked away very happy - thanks again for everything!!"
- Jeff & Lauren Slemp
"Ed was the perfect DJ. We had a very complex entry plan, and Ed made it happen. It was amazing how he carried our instructions to a tee and made it exactly what we initially envisioned. His choice of music was perfect. In addition, Ed was very helpful in making our slideshow look so great. The best quality of Ed's service, is that he makes every event personal to fit the requests and wishes of the couple."
- Kai & Sarah Hirabayashi
"Killer Whale Audio came highly recommended by our wedding coordinator and she was absolutely right! Ed was terrific to work with. He took the time to understand what we wanted and more importantly, what we didn't want, at our reception. He was friendly, responsive, and customer service oriented. Even several of my friends commented on what a great DJ we used. I'd recommend Killer Whale Audio in a heartbeat! Thanks Ed - It was great!"
- Darcy & John Dawson
"Thank you so much for you service. When things got chaotic in certain aspects of our planning, talking with you made me feel confident and safe. I appreciate your being there for us before, during and after our ceremony - you were awesome! I will most definitely recommend you to all couples!! Thanks again for it all."
- Brye & Jesse McFarland
"Thank you for making our wedding run smoothly and for being so fun. All of our guests said we had the best DJ & I couldn't agree more! The music, timing & introductions were perfect! Thank you for remembering to do all the little details and dedications! Thanks again, Ed!"
- Steve & Julie Mast
"You were positively fabulous. You made our wedding such a wonderful celebration! Thank you so very, very much for making our wedding and reception so lively and festive. Everyone says it's the best wedding they've ever been to! We'd most definitely recommend Killer Whale Audio anytime! It was such a pleasure, and so much fun, working with you! And, thank you for being so awesome about staying until the bitter end! It made our reception a rousing success! Clone Ed so everyone can hire him! All our best,"
- Eric & Dallas Calvert
"Ed fit in so well with our reception that our friends and family thought we had known him for years! We felt like he was more of a close personal friend than a hired DJ. You went above and beyond - thanks for making it so personal, Ed."
- Ryan & Jennifer Nienaber
"We would highly recommend the DJ services of Killer Whale Audio to others. Ed Whale is professional, organized & very courteous. He goes out of his way to ensure that your event is exactly as you want it to be. Thank you so much, Ed - you were super!"
- Alixx & Scott Hutsenpiller
"Killer Whale Audio did a fantastic job with our wedding. We were very much satisfied with the price, performance and value, and would absolutely recommend them! Ed kept the dance floor full all night long."
- Josh & Jennifer Fleming
"Thank you for your services. Everything was amazing! The wedding was awesome, I've never seen my grandparents dance, especially like that! People are still talking about how much fun they had, and we have been receiving thank you cards for inviting people! You were a big part of that! It was also wonderful how you took care of all the mics for the minister and my brother. Thanks for making him feel comfortable enough to sing! You kept the wedding running smoothly & seamlessly...Thank you!"
- Josh & Angie Gage
"We very much enjoyed all the music played at our ceremony, during dinner and at our reception! Many of our guests came up to us to tell us what an AWESOME D.J. we have :-) Thanks for playing their requests, it turned out to be a great night of dancing! Our photographer enjoyed working with you as well. Thanks again for EVERYTHING!!"
- Katie & Darin Bouska
"Never have I met a more organized professional! The services that Killer Whale Audio renders is nothing short of top notch. I enjoy working with Ed immensely and appreciate his enthusiasm and attention to detail! Thanks Ed for making my job easy!"
- Michelle Ditullio - Sunriver Resort Catering Manager
"YOU ROCK ED! Your personable style and attentive nature really made us feel at ease. Ed truly made our wedding fabulous! All of our guests, both young and old, couldn't keep from dancing! It's evident that he really listened to what we wanted, and complimented our special day with his warm spirit and professional attitude. It was such a pleasure working with him, he truly was the icing on the cake! I have a few friends who are actually already thinking about you hosting another event. I couldn't imagine a better DJ for our wedding! I look forward to seeing you soon. Thank you so much for everything!"
- Darcy & Pat Pintar
"Thanks Ed - You were great! We really enjoyed the music. Ed was fun and professional! Thanks again,"
- Paul & Leslie Bluemle
"Thank you for doing such a wonderful job with the ceremony music. It was such a relief having you in control of all that. I am so glad I was able to have "Wayfarer" to walk down to - it made a lot of people cry! It was a blessing to have you there. Thanks again,"
- Matt & Jamie Gabel
"I am a music enthusiast as is my entire family. When it came to choosing who should do the music (band or DJ) and what music to play (where do we begin: R&B, Motown, rock, classic ballads, etc.) we didn't know where to start. Then I met Ed. I heard that great 'radio' voice and saw his good sense of humor and knew we were going with a DJ. My whole wedding was an incredible experience and Ed added to it at every turn. He was as hands on as I wanted him to be: helping me choose music when I was unsure & reassuring me on my choices that were not 'traditional.' Frank & I were not the only people who enjoyed Ed. My guests all said it was the best wedding they've ever attended - and the music was great. My 85 year old grandpa ditched his cane to cut a rug with everyone! Thank you Ed for giving us the wedding of our dreams. The images of our loved one dancing the night away in absolute abandon will go to our graves with us! They are our most treasured memories from the entire weekend. Thank you!"
- Frank & Amanda Linas
"Ed was professional, courteous and fun! Our reception was amazing. Our guests had such a wonderful time and enjoyed the music and entertainment. Ed was able to read the crowd and could tell what should be played at the right moment. He was also able to fluctuate the flow of events if something else came up. We had to leave the reception for 1/2 hour for photos and the crowd didn't even notice we were gone because they were thoroughly enjoying themselves! We had guests who were from different generations who enjoy a variety of music. Anyone who can please my friends, mom and grandpa's style of music deserves definite praise in my mind! Ed has style, and he's a class act. I would recommend him hands down above any other DJ in Central Oregon. We did our research, and he was recommended more than any other DJ by all of the wedding vendors in Central Oregon. If you book him for an event, you won't be disappointed! Ed - we had such a great time! Thanks for making our wedding day fun and memorable! We had so many people compliment the music - you are the bomb! Thanks & good luck!"
- Jeff & Genevra Richardson
"Ed is a true professional. He keeps the events moving along and is much more than just a DJ. He is a charismatic emcee that appeals to everyone. His extensive selection kept people on their feet the entire night!"
- Brian & April Baker
"Ed's presence at out wedding made the even run smoothly and elegantly. We were so thankful to have him! We were very satisfied with the price, performance and value. Value is the key word here. You are worth your weight in gold, Ed! Always courteous, charming, efficient & good natured. Thanks Ed!"
- Rebecca & John Daenzer
"Ed Whale was a wonderful and fun DJ. He made the night flow smoothly, and reduced the stress for me, the bride. This allowed me to truly enjoy the night and the people around us. Ed gave great ideas and his spirit truly made us exited. We knew that we were in excellent hands and had the time of our lives, and so did our guests. Thank you, Ed for everything, it wouldn't have been my dream wedding without you. Sincerely,"
- Christina & Jonathan Putney
"Ed will make your event rock! Ed makes suggestions and has the equipment to exceed your expectations. The value was excellent, thanks, Ed."
- Matt & Kelly Devlin
"Thank you again for your part in what was the greatest day in my life - Karen and I are so happy that we chose you as our DJ. Everything was handled so professionally and everything went smoothly - even when we were running around crazy! Song selection was awesome, you knew exactly what we were looking for...and Karen loved the song I played for her, and your set-up there was flawless as well. I hope that when we renew our vows in 10 years, you're still around because it was the best money we've ever spent...Take good care and thanks again!"
- John (& Karen) Boccabella
"Dear Ed, We want to thank you very much for the wonderful job you did on our wedding day. The variety of music you had was excellent and the equipment sounded great! Everything was well coordinated so that we didn’t have to worry about a thing (for both the ceremony & reception). We very much appreciate the attentiveness that was given to make sure that all of the information was correct for our “big day”. It is seldom anymore that someone receives such an excellent service and such personal concern as you showed that evening. The wedding definitely wouldn’t have been so successful without you there. Thank you for being flexible with our requests….for keeping me on track throughout the reception (and ceremony), and for providing the entertainment that made the party a great success. I hope you had as much fun as our guests did!. As you know, we were dancing all night long – people who haven’t danced for years were up on the dance floor! Please feel free to use us as a reference if ever necessary. You were wonderful and we would recommend you to anyone!!!! Thanks again. p.s. Thank you for setting up the keyboard/sound system for Chippy’s solos at both the ceremony & reception. You went above & beyond! Sincerely,"
- Scott & Karrie Bomstad
"I cannot thank you enough for all that you did at our wedding. From getting me ice water when I was tying to keep cool before the ceremony, to your light-hearted sense of humor trying to calm my nerves, and making the reception more fun than either of us could imagine! You really kept the party going - we definitely didn't want to leave. And there were people on the dance floor that I had never seen dance before. And I really appreciate all your efforts to keep in contact with me throughout the whole planning process. And the fact that you personally came out to do our reception when your new baby was just days old, really shows your commitment and desire to make our day as special as it could possibly be - and it was. We will definitely recommend your services to anyone we can and we would gladly use your services again. Thank you so much."
- Vanessa & Mark Mauch
"It was a pleasure working with you Ed. Thank you for all of your help and support! We had a great time and everyone has let us know how fun our wedding was for them!"
- Kristie & John Davis
"Planning a wedding from afar is not an easy task, especially if you live overseas like us. Ed Whale made planning the music for our reception easy. From our many emails back & forth, to our in-person meeting (not until less than a week before the actual wedding, mind you) Ed was very professional, informative, helpful & patient. We decided to go with Killer Whale Audio based on a recommendation, and we are so glad we did. Ed did a great job of reading the crowd and had everyone on the dance floor all night. So many people have told us how much fun they had at our wedding and that they couldn't stop dancing. There was never a time when no one was on the dance floor. We would definitely recommend Killer Whale Audio to anyone planning a future event. Ed, we had a really good time and hope you did, too. We also wanted to say thanks for helping figure out where the quartet should go. My dad really appreciated your help with the situation. Thanks for making our wedding so much fun! Everyone had a great time and part of that was due to the music you played. If we know anyone getting married in the Bend area we will be sure to pass on your name. Thanks, again."
- Mike & Kate Steen
"We weren't sure anyone would dance at an afternoon wedding, so we almost passed on having a DJ. Thank goodness we didn't - Ed was a great choice - almost everyone danced (even people we've never seen dance before) and the energy level was fantastic. Only a good DJ can keep a crowd going like that. Ed was tons of fun, from our initial meeting through the ceremony & reception. In fact, we plan to visit him next time we're in town! We would recommend him for any event!"
- Trish & Carlos White
"Ed Whale is professional, personable, and a whole lot of fun to work with. His expertise and personality kept the event running smoothly from beginning to end, and kept us wanting more! He read the crowd and kept the dance floor full all night. Everyone has been talking about how wonderful it was - and will continue to talk about it for years to come! Everything was perfect! It could not have been any better! My brother wants Ed to come to Salem for his wedding. I would recommend a "walk down the isle" with Ed to anyone!"
- Erik & Amy Fast
"A Wedding is an event that most people get to plan once in their lifetime - so it becomes almost an obsession to make it as perfect as possible. I had attended a wedding the year before in which Ed Whale was the DJ. Watching the guests, and listening to the music, I was instantly convinced that we needed Mr. Whale for our wedding. Ed Whale is so personable - going over the wedding plan with us - getting specific about music preference. It took so much stress off our shoulders, knowing that he would not play music that didn't suit us as a couple. His interaction with the crowd was perfect - we appreciated that he was not obtrusive - and yet gently guided our event according to our pre-planning. We had asked Ed to put together a music compilation to go with a personal photo - slide show (which he had never ever seen!) Solely based on time estimates - Ed chose music for our pictures that almost made our slide show "speak" - guests were actually crying! Ed does not seem to know the word "no" - he made everything happen, and even offered very helpful wedding tips. His experience and patience was, and is phenomenal! We could never adequately thank him for making our very special event even that much more memorable. We highly recommend Ed Whale for any event."
- Sarah & Blake Van Meter
"It was a pleasure to work with Ed from start to finish. Ed provided audio for our ceremony & reception, and an enormous amount of expertise and advice on everything from format, timing, to music selection. Ed is the consummate professional who listens and truly wants to deliver what you want in your special day. Ed is courteous, kind, thorough and friendly. He made me feel confident that our day would go perfectly smooth, which it did thanks to Ed. We danced all night long. Thanks Ed for making our wedding day memorable and perfect!"
- Sander & Amy Culliton
"I was completely satisfied with Killer Whale Audio! They did everything we agreed to. My friends and family commented on how the music set the tune for everything! We recommend Killer Whale Audio and would refer them to others. Don't change a thing!"
- Darin & Karyn Martin
"Cannot say enough good things about our experience with Ed. He was professional, courteous & very enjoyable! He kept our wedding reception moving & organized. He worked well with the photographer, the club coordinator & our guests. The music was perfect and we danced to the very end! Everything went so smoothly - it was great & we had so much fun! Would recommend Ed to anyone looking for a great DJ/MC. Ed - Thanks so much for everything!"
- Kathy & Charlie Suriano
"Killer Whale Audio did a very professional job of our wedding ceremony & reception music. I have never seen so many people on the dance floor for every song. Once the dancing started, I don't know if anyone sat down again until it was over. Great selection of music for the crowd. Thank you!"
- Alan & Jennell Huntzinger
"We greatly appreciated Ed's patience during coordination & professionalism throughout. It was comforting to know we did not have to worry about a cheeseball DJ and the music was great! Everyone had a great time!"
- Chris & Kaila Adler
"Ed - You are the best. You knew exactly what people wanted to hear. People that were at the party keep telling how fun it was & who was the DJ, he was great! :-) We'll be giving more business. Thanks for everything."
- Kacey Hayes, double birthday party!
"From the moment we contacted Ed to DJ at our reception, he was nothing but helpful. He was emphatic about doing things the way we wanted them to be done. Often there were times, particularly during the actual reception, when we weren't sure how to approach a specific situation - Ed was wonderful! He kept the reception on track, approaching us with new situations, or coordinating events (like bouquet toss/garter toss, etc.) with the head contact person at our reception site. His work was awesome! We had a fabulous time! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!"
- Keith & Melissa Clayton
"Ed from Killer Whale Audio took the pressure off the little details that I didn't even consider. Ed has the best personality. He is fun, and quite funny! We absolutely enjoyed him as our D.J. and part wedding coordinator! Ed went above and WAY beyond to help our day be the most beautiful and meaningful to me and my husband. Ed took the time to get to know us as a couple, and from there was able to give his input and ideas that I would have never even thought of, and honestly his ideas were some of my favorite and special parts of our wedding day! Forever I will remember my guests commenting on the choice of music played as my attendants walked down the isle - and the chills everyone got when my choice of music started and I came down the isle! Thank you Ed! You are amazingly with it and on top of everything."
- Michelle & Tom Grande
"Brian and I felt so comfortable knowing that Ed was taking care of the music for the wedding. He played a great variety of music that kept everyone dancing (and my mom happy). Thank you!"
- Mari & Brian Little
"Thank you for doing such a professional job at our wedding. It was so nice to place the entertainment in your hands so we could enjoy our special day, and you sure did deliver! We had so many unsolicited compliments on the music. Your music choices harmonized the dance floor mood and kept people dancing all night. You exceeded our expectations. Thanks again for orchestrating a party we won't forget!"
- Eric & Amy Simpson
"We were absolutely pleased with the quality of Killer Whale Audio's work. Thanks much, Ed - I really appreciate the DJ's, like you, who let the group be the show - mine have no problem 'gettin in to it!' Thank again."
- Carole, Nike Basketball convention
"Killer Whale Audio did a terrific job catering to a very wide range of ages at our wedding. We were worried that some of the older guests might not find the music and dancing part of the evening enjoyable, be there were 80 year old grandparents as well as teenagers dancing every song! We felt Killer Whale Audio made great song choices throughout the reception. Several of our guests have commented on what a great time they had dancing at the reception. It was a relief to have such an important part of our wedding handled so professionally."
- Michael & Lisa Kron
"The staff at Killer Whale Audio are top notch. They were professional & courteous in their business arrangements and provided entertainment that delighted guests from ages 8 to 80. Everyone thought it was a party to remember. We appreciate your good work!"
- David Shapiro, Bat Mitzvah
"Ed - Thank you so much! Lots of comments from guests at the party. We all had a Fabulous time & you did a great job of directing people for our needs, as well as with the music! You helped make the party a success!"
- Kathleen Medina, 40th Anniversary surprise party July 31, 2003
"Thank you so much for being a part of Heidi's special day! We really enjoyed both meeting you and working with you - Our comments from our friends were that we all seemed so relaxed - the reason - we had hired the BEST and knew that Heidi would have that perfect magical day, and we would have time for the important things--spending wonderful quality time with friends and family. Your attention to detail weeks before this glorious event made Heidi's and Tim's evening more magical than we all could have imagined. Please don't change a thing - Your professional way of handling everything was great - especially for people planning an out of town wedding. You really helped make things go smooth. Thank you So Much. We think you're GREAT"
- Dave and Carol Aure (Parents) & Tim & Heidi Itzenheiser
"Loved working with Ed. It was great to have help/suggestions in the planning process. Ed kept the party hopping all night - there was never a dull moment on the dance floor. Ed can read a crowd, too - he was very aware of what people were enjoying and kept a good mix of music coming. It wouldn't have been such a successful reception with any other DJ!"
- Quentin & Andrea Wilson
"Killer Whale Audio is definitely a top notch company. Ed Whale was able to mix our wide range of musical selections with smooth transitions throughout the evening. Everyone, from the one year old nieces to the 87 year old Grandmothers, was up and boogieing and having an awesome time. Thanks Ed! It was a memorable evening."
- Mac and Kerry Wilson
"It's hard to put into words how much it meant to us, and to describe it on paper doesn't do it justice. Suffice it to say it was wonderful. The big event was one which will be remembered and cherished for a long time to come. Thank you again for such a memorable evening. We continue to get wonderful comments about you...and we knew we would."
- Anand & Julie Rajaratnam
"Matt & I were planning a wedding in Oregon all the way from New York...and we expected nothing but headaches because of the distance. Ed made us feel we were in his living room every time we called! He was wonderful, and we couldn't have been happier. He played songs over the phone for us, suggested an agenda for the night, and he even accommodated our requests for music to be played during a slideshow we created. Still, to this day, our guests tell us Ed was one of the best DJ's they have seen at a wedding...even one grandmother (80+ in age) who danced until 11:15 pm! Thanks, Ed!"
- Leslie & Matt Street
"Most everyone commented on "the great music." I have already had two people ask me who you were and I gave them your business cards. I highly recommend Killer Whale Audio for any event that needs music! From the first call to Ed to the goodbye after our party, I felt totally comfortable that all my music needs would be taken care of "first class." When you have so much planning and work going into an event, it's nice to know you can count on an outstanding job done by Killer Whale Audio."

He chose perfect music for every moment...he made every person from flower girl to nervous bride feel at ease, and he has wonderful ideas to make old traditions special. Half way through the day, we had to remind ourselves the Ed was the DJ, and not part of the family! Thank you for everything."

"I have had the pleasure of working with Ed over the past four years. I am a wedding floral designer and coordinator, and often stay throughout the reception. I see first hand how professional and friendly Ed is with the wedding guests, and how great and clear his music sounds. I will give you a brief story of when I first realized how great Ed was. I had a wedding a few years ago for a very small and conservative group. The reception was starting out very slow. The guests weren't mingling, and seemed a bit bored...then Ed stepped in. It was amazing. Within a few songs, he had everyone on the dance floor having a great time and laughing. He saved that reception! I would recommend Ed Whale to anyone - he is a fantastic DJ."

"I'd always kinda shy'd away from DJ's...always seemed way too 'hip' for me. When I started asking local folks in Bend and Black Butte for suggestions, they all came back with, Ed! Ed brought such class to our wedding and was the ultimate host. He made sure we were pleased with every aspect of his job...we were more than pleased. Thanks, Ed!"
- Kathleen & Dennis Green, Jr.
"Ed contributed greatly to making our wedding reception fun for all of the guests. He even improvised a bit on the piano during dinner. The music was fabulous, and Ed did everything just as we requested."
- Tanja Hens & Marlon De La Barrera
"To any and all potential customers of Killer Whale Audio: Stop looking! We're from Seattle and really needed to depend on referrals when choosing vendors for our wedding. Ed was HIGHLY recommended to us by a few different people, and when we called him, he sealed the deal with his professionalism, humor and old-fashioned charm! We had a few unique situations that we wanted to address at our reception. Not only was Ed open to these ideas, he was very instrumental in making them happen! He delivered everything he promised and he was very receptive to little changes or additions I wanted to make right there at the reception. His attention to detail is impeccable; his ability to read the crowd is priceless. Our big day literally could not have gone any better and many people told us it was the best wedding they'd ever been to (thanks to our great vendors!). There are a few sure signs of a great wedding (and a fantastic DJ), and one of them is a full dance floor. Our dance floor was packed all the way up until the very last song. MANY thanks to Ed for being such a vital part of our perfect day!"

- Dan & Ronica Comingore
"All our friends and family commented how much fun you were, and how accommodating you were. We would definitely hire you again."
- Diane O'Neil & Kirk Hadley
"Comments from our guests: The DJ was great! The music was really good! Who was that guy? (meaning you!) Ed, you were very helpful in the planning process, as well as during the event. Your selection of music was perfect! The music for the ceremony was perfect! Thank you for everything!"

*personal note: Laura directs weddings & conventions at Awbrey Glen in Bend. I know she sees many DJ's at work in her position, and I consider it an incredible honor to be the one asked to perform for her very own wedding. Thank you, Laura & Stein!
"We've been using the same DJ for our annual convention for 10 years. Our members are extremely picky and loved this DJ. We decided to take a risk and try someone new. We were delighted with Ed's performance, and were extremely surprised when our membership indicated that they preferred the "new" DJ to the one we had been using. Ed, you did a great job! Thanks for being so courteous and enthusiastic. As soon as I get the dates figured out, I'll be calling you about next year. Thanks, again!"
- Dayan Morgan-Sylvaen, Oregon Trial Lawyers Convention
"We were extremely pleased with Killer Whale Audio - we couldn't have been more satisfied with Ed. He was very responsive to our needs before, during and even after the job, and very courteous! We were especially satisfied with the price, performance and value of Killer Whale Audio! Very reasonable. The only thing I'd suggest is that you Xerox copy Ed, so you could send him to all your events! We will definitely recommend Killer Whale Audio to others."
- Barry & Katrina Drew
"I highly recommend Ed with Killer Whale Audio to entertain at your wedding reception, or any other parties. Out of all the things I had to plan for the wedding and reception, I was most concerned about how the reception would flow. After my initial meeting with Ed, all of my concerns were gone! He is so experienced with wedding receptions that he will be able to tell you what is "traditionally" done, but also gives you new fun ideas and guides you in planning what order and how you want things done. From cutting the cake, you and your father dance, bouquet toss, and all the other fun reception events...he will lead things and you have nothing to worry about!! You can just enjoy your day like I was able to! Thank you Ed for making my day very special!!
- Abbie Trussell
"From the planning stage to the event itself, you were fantastic to work with. I especially appreciated your adaptability with our special requests, and your ability to 'read' our audience. I would definitely recommend you. Everyone had a super time!"
- Linda Navarro, VP Oregon Bankers Association, convention
"As a Catering Coordinator for Black Butte Ranch, I directed scores of weddings and conventions, and I always loved to see Ed show up. He's so easy to get along with, and always has a good time. I see how he deals with things in front of, and behind the scenes. Ed's attention to detail and care to make sure everything is just right is remarkable. He is highly skilled at working the different crowds and getting them going. Bride's always thank me for having referred him. Ed is one of those vendors that's definitely worth the money, and I'm delighted to be able to recommend him. Anyone would be lucky to have Killer Whale Audio for their DJ."
