Serving Bradenton, Sarasota and Surrounding Areas


My name is John Finnegan, working professionally under the company name of “Fogg Sound”. I have performed at thousands of events since 1984. I provide the kind of experience and training to meet the demands of every event I’ve had the pleasure to be part of.

I use professional equipment, I’m insured, I perform in appropriate attire, I’m customer-focused, I have emergency plans in place, and I refrain from smoking or drinking alcoholic beverages while performing. Now, I’m not human boom box who just pushes buttons while appearing aloof and unapproachable. On the contrary, I employ a professional posture throughout the event, welcoming requests, interacting with the guests, and leading group and individual activities as necessary and previously approved by you, my client.


Why You Should Hire John Finnegan aka “Fogg Sound”.

Now that you know a little bit about me, you’re probably wondering if I’m the right DJ for your wedding. The truth is, it’s too early to tell. I’ve done small weddings, big weddings, multi-cultural weddings, simple weddings, and really complicated weddings. When I’m working a wedding that’s the right fit , everything just “clicks” – I’m happy, the clients are happy, and their guests are happy.

No two weddings are exactly alike. I treat every single wedding as a fresh opportunity to do what I do best. With years of experience, I have a pretty good sense of what works and what doesn’t work.

I only do a maximum of one event per day and three events per weekend – to help maintain my focus on my clients and give each event my undivided attention. I love entertaining. The creative challenge of getting a large, diverse group of people to come together on the dance floor is very exciting. So the question remains, am I a good fit for you? Here are a few things that might help you decide…

  • I will make sure that your wedding is elegant and tasteful all the way through dinner, but once the dance floor opens, I will throw-down a dance party for the rest of the night.
  • I am a professional, polished emcee with a good voice. However, I am not a “party motivator” DJ and I will not spend much time on the microphone ramping up the crowd.
  • I’m happy to play whatever you would like. I’m interested in getting to know you as a couple and building an amazing playlist that reflects your tastes, and also doesn’t come across as cheesy or predictable.
  • I will make sure that your guests have an awesome time and dance like crazy. I will get your guests to dance using a combination of your playlist, my experience, and requests from your guests.
  • I’m easy to work with. I’m not interested in adding to the stress associated with planning a wedding. I’m happy to help wherever you need me, and if you would rather just let me “do my thing” then that’s fine too.

If this sounds good to you, I would love to work with you. If you don’t think I’m a good fit for your wedding, feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to refer you to one of my DJ friends who might be a better fit.


Though weddings take up a good portion of my entertainment bookings, I also enjoy providing fun and professional DJ service for corporate events, holiday parties, birthdays, anniversaries, private parties, class reunions, school dances, fundraisers, community events and much more!



I always provide dance floor lighting effects to enhance the mood of any event. These may include moving heads, star balls, lasers, color washes, and gobos!


For an additional fee, ask about interactive song props for your guests to enhance the fun!


Add karaoke fun to your party package. It’s a great way to push your event to the next level. You supply the talent and I’ll supply the music, TV monitors, and microphones!
