DJ Ted Karter Nominated Cleveland Best Wedding DJ.jpg
  •      Hi there, I'm Ted Karter, the passionate force behind SoundProof Entertainment. Music has always been my muse, sparking joy in me from a very young age.

    When I was just 16, I landed my own radio gig at a local college station, immersing myself in the world of music. When the opportunity arose to DJ for on of my high school dances, I jumped at it- even though I was clueless about pro DJ equipment.

    Armed with nothing but a tape deck, cd player, a pair of speakers, and an amplifier, I improvised my way through. I had meticulously planned out the night and had a bunch of music on standby to switch it up when needed. I had to toggle between "CD" and "Tape" on the amplifier when it came time for me to switch songs because I didn't have a professional mixer! To my delight, the dance was a hit! Despite my lack of gear knowledge and never having DJ'd for a live dance crowd before, some of my fellow students hailed it as the "best dance they've ever attended", and requests to do more poured in.

    That pivotal moment ignited a fire within me for live DJ'ing. It was the beginning of an exhilarating journey that led me to where I am today: curating unforgettable experiences through the power of music!

  •      Drawing upon my expertise as a seasoned club DJ and honing my microphone techniques through years of radio and live announcing, I discovered my true passion when I ventured into wedding DJing two decades ago. From my humble beginnings with just a tape deck and CD player, I've evolved significantly! At SoundProof Entertainment, we pride ourselves on using top-of-the-line equipment, but my fervor for DJing is as vibrant as it ever was.
