DJ Ted Karter Nominated Cleveland Best Wedding DJ.jpg
  •      Passionate about music, owner Ted Karter began his DJ career in high school. First, as an on-air personality on a college radio station and later at school dances. 

  •      A Communication major at Cleveland State University, he was an on-air broadcaster for WCSB for 7 years while working his way into the Cleveland nightclub and bar scene.

  •      Ted has been a resident or guest DJ at notable venues such as Metropolis (Trilogy), The Phantasy, Smart Bar, The Odeon, House of Blues, Peabody’s, The Garage, View Ultra-lounge, The Grid, Uptown (Bowling Green), and headlined events in Pittsburgh, Toronto, Columbus, and Detroit.

  •      Using skills learned as a club DJ and microphone techniques practiced over many years while announcing on radio, Ted found his calling when he DJ’d his first wedding 20 years ago! He has done hundreds more since, learning the versatility to cater to individual clients, crowds, and unexpected situations.

  •      “SoundProof sets itself apart by having DJs that have found the balance between classic and contemporary, modern and traditional,” he says. “We’re whom to turn to if you’re looking for confidence and experience, planning assistance, elegant ceremonies, classy cocktail hours, feel-good dinner music, and rocking dance floors!”
