DJ / MC Ray….Bilingual

Soundwave DJ Ray Vales has been with the company since 2007.  Ray has dee jayed more than 1000 weddings with Soundwave.  DJ Ray Vales has numerous glowing reviews from clients on Wedding Wire, and is highly endorsed by Orlando venues and vendors.

Everyone in the industry loves DJ Ray of Soundwave, really they do!  He is known for going above and beyond at every single wedding or corporate event.  He is extremely charismatic and passionate about Soundwave and ensuring the success of every celebration.  He easily adapts to changes on site and always does so with a smile.  Keep in mind that this is not easy, because at the same time, he is performing as a DJ, playing music, ensuring successful audio, and announcing on the microphone!

DJ Ray possesses a wealth of music knowledge that spans American pop from 1950s – current, Carribbean and Latin.  His DJ career began in nightclubs, so he is a skilled beat mixer and can really “turn it on” for client’s who desire that club vibe.

DJ Ray also has extensive audio and lighting expertise. So it is not uncommon for us to include Ray on corporate gigs or weddings that need special audio needs, or require intricate LED Lighting Design.

He is fluent in English and Spanish, and understands Portuguese.

Previously, DJ Ray worked six years at an Orlando DJ company where his focus was weddings. For 3 years, Ray served as a cruise ship DJ with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. He dee jayed weddings on board the ship, spun music at the clubs, and provided poolside entertainment. He was also an audio/visual technician for the stage shows.
