Les Kopasz has been a professional DJ & MC since the age of 20. He is a Master MC and exceptionally talented beat mixer. His expertise spans nightclub, live to air DJ, corporate and convention events, and weddings. For the last 16 years, he has focused on weddings and been a part of more than 2,000 celebrations.
His DJ philosophy is simple—every Soundwave wedding, social or corporate is unique and deserves creativity, not cookie-cutter formats. He understands the importance of looking at the big picture to ensure entire event success whether it be a small 20 guest wedding, highly choreographed 200 guest wedding, or 800 attendee convention.
Les is highly regarded throughout the Orlando wedding industry for amazing attention to details, incredible audio and technical expertise, and the unique ability to get even some of the most challenging crowds dancing. He has an amazing voice on the microphone and truly excels as a top notch emcee.
Les began dee jaying in nightclubs where he served as Head DJ at some of the largest clubs throughout Buffalo, NY, and Niagara Falls from 1987–1997. Some of the clubs included Bayview Beach Club, Mickey Rats, The Late Show, Fusions and LaBoom. Throughout his clubbing years in Buffalo, Les also served as a live DJ on pop radio station KISS 98.5.
After working the club scene for 10 years, Les and his wife Wendy began Soundwave Entertainment Systems. In 2001, Les and his family moved from Buffalo to Orlando. Since that time, Soundwave has become the most awarded DJ and LED Lighting Design company in Orlando.
Under his leadership, Soundwave is Orlando’s most sought after company specializing in DJ and LED Lighting Design for Weddings. We have been honored with a plethora of the most distinquished awards ~ Vendor’s Choice each of the 4 years of its existence, The Knot Best, Wedding Wire Choice, and Bride’s Choice.
