Higher Sound

The Higher Sound is a diverse team of experienced and creative DJs, Selectors, and Event Curators.   Our passion is music, and we provide the best music for your event!


We are a group of DJs from the Denver (and Boulder), Colorado area.  Most of us are not originally from Colorado, but we now call this amazing place our home.  Everyone on our team came together through spinning and playing parties, and we've all been DJ'ing along the Front Range of Colorado for over a decade.   The company was birthed after we started noticing that our friends had a tough time finding great DJs for their weddings.  After talking amongst ourselves and relaying our experiences to each other, tthe light bulb went off.   We realized we had an opportunity to provide a service.  We seized that opportunity, and The Higher Sound was born. 


Our is mission is to provide exceptional music for your party.  We are not traditional.  The traditional DJ is kinda boring.  We do not play the same music for every show; instead, we are constantly updating our sounds.  We are not chatty MCs who tell jokes.  We do not haul in obnoxious lighting rigs.  We do have accent lighting that we can set up…   or not.  We can play the cheesy standards if you like.  But it's not our specialty.  That being said, we are humble servants whose mission it is to take your event to the next level, we are not ego-driven; we'll play anything.  It's your party, after all.  Take a look around our website to find out more about us.
