Welcome to
Receptive Sound

Des Moines Premier Wedding, Corporate and
Non-Profit DJ and Event Planning Service

About Us


Your DJs - Patrick Porto, Jim Bollard and Mike Modlin

With the experience of more than 250 weddings, we look to enhance your special evening with fresh innovative ideas to keep your family and friends entertained and dancing all night long.  


Why we are different

We never charge for a set number of hours.  We are invested in your night till the last person leaves or they turn out the lights.


Our philosophy

Ensure that we get to know the two of you well enough that we can coordinate the evening to ensure the two of you get to maximize your time with the guests. 


You can also find us on Facebook at  Receptive Sound

Who we work with

Event Planners

Mindy Toyne - At Any Event


Wedding Venues

We have entertained at most venues in town, know the owners/managers and can help refer places based on the size of your party.


Most couples today have the freedom to choose their ceremony location.  We offer music and video services.


Our time to shine.  We don't work off of a set playlist, but tailor the evening to your family and friends. 


Not sure who to go with, feel free to ask if we have worked with someone or need a recommendation.

We would love the opportunity to sit down and discuss your evening with you live.
