Since 1981, I've combined my electrical and acoustics engineering degree, my background in Ballroom and Latin Dancing and a true desire to make every event unique, special and memorable.
It started when a DJ at a corporate holiday party refused to play my song request, despite an empty dance floor. As a dance teacher, I would have lit up the party, but he didn't care. I was so disappointed, that 2 weeks later, I started my own DJ service, putting my dance background, public speaking confidence, music collection and engineering degree to work. The rest, is history.
In the late 1990s, using the process which we call The Matrix Unleashed, I wrote 15 books about various aspects of the DJ industry, and created a series of live training courses to help other DJs raise their bar. The timeless content focusses on technical, business, marketing, and performance related subjects, and we offer this training for all performers.
We kept raising our bar, pushing to create more impact and adding value. Now, it's way high. Look up, way up.

That you very much Ron you did a great job and all the little extras you threw in through out the night made it a very special night. Thanks again it was a night to remember and I will spread the word that you are the man for the job when it comes to doing a wedding. - Father of the Bride
Hey Ron, You did a fantastic job. - Mother of the Bride
Note to Readers: I ended up doing 3 cousins' weddings: Jeff and Laura's wedding, then A Double wedding for Lisa and Craig, Dave and Melissa, all at the same family farm, at which all 8 brides and grooms all at each others' weddings.

It was a pleasure working with you. That's probably the first wedding where I've left at the designated time on the contract, and that says a lot about the job you did. I will definitely be recommending you to couples who are looking for your services.

I honestly do not know where to start. Chris and I loved learning Swing dancing and truly miss our lessons with you now that we’re happily married. Not only did you give us the gift of swing but also our wedding video. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Devon.
Ron, I started learning swing just because I had an open mind and didn’t expect much. You made it something pretty amazing and it turned into so much fun! Our sessions became our escape from the stress of wedding planning. It was a joy and a pleasure to work with you. Thanks so much - Christopher.
Sophia and Eugene
Sophia and I deeply deeply thank you for all that you did for us.
We were both sincerely touched that our teacher cared so much, to make it down, at that hour to see us for a few minutes.
Thank you for the patience, enthusiasm and energy you channeled to us.
Friends who were at our wedding still commend our first dance.
To tell you the truth, Sophia and I go through the routine every now and then as well, and we ALWAYS have a good laugh while we dance.
Our first dance is in our hearts and memories forever, and our time with you will be with us always.
Thanks again for the great times and life long memories,
Eugene and Sophia.

I had several people tell me they loved what you did last year so I think we will just keep it the same for next year. See you then.

“A big concern for me was a DJ who would function on their own based on experience and common sense. I decided to call Ron because he has a Ballroom Dance background and doesn’t pad his services with expensive promotional materials full of lights, chemical fog and other things that speak not at all to the quality of the actual music.
Then when we found out that Ron was also an engineer, this reassured me further that the music services weren’t something we’d have to worry about. The request driven element was a “plus” in ways I couldn’t have predicted and definitely took the guesswork out of the equation.
If you’re reading this, you’re considering Ron Finlay and Perpetual Rhythms for your event. My suggestion to you is: Just Book Him!”
Misty-Lee and Derick (North Bay)
“Thank you very much for everything!
We have been getting rave reviews from our guests and Derick and I both appreciated your attentiveness to both our wishes and needs for the evening. Having you there made it so much easier, especially with your expertise.
I especially love how you were able to accommodate my new mother and keep her on the dance floor. If she was up dancing, so was everyone else. You definitely had a good read on the crowd.
You kept the volume at a PERFECT level all night long – I find all too often when at other functions the music is much too loud, making a meaningful conversation close to impossible.
We would highly recommend your entertainment services to anyone hosting a special event – you made it easy, stress-less and more importantly, memorable! Big Smiles!
Thank you Ron for everything!”
Shelly and Ian
“We couldn’t have been in better hands.Your professionalism and knowledge were self evident when the day came.
Your idea of incorporating the “Phantom of the Opera” into our wedding and choreographing our first dance was phenomenal.
We felt that our wedding was as important to you as it was to us. Thank you for helping us achieve our dream … thanks for caring.”
Tess & Arash
“Our wedding was an international wedding and Ron was able to quickly learn about both of our cultures and ethnic music of both sides. He perfectly blended them with the popular Canadian music.
He encouraged all of the guests in a way that they followed our planned events while having lots of fun. It’s important that people don’t divide to small groups isolating from others, which has happened at some weddings.
We have met many of the people who attended our wedding weeks or months later, and they all told us that they truly had a fantastic time and enjoyed themselves.
Our wedding was a total success and everybody enjoyed it, including the bride and groom.”
Kelly and Mark
“You helped turn our wedding day into a dream come true. Thanks to your services, our day was perfect.
The music was great and it was nice to use a DJ who focused on playing the music we wanted, not what he wanted. The video also captured our first dance, which was so special after the many nights of practice that went into it.
At first we were reluctant to take dancing lessons, but thanks to you we were able to go out and enjoy the dance and the applause of our guests.
You were a professional at all times and a great joy to work with.”
Drs. Nancy and Paul
“We would like to Thank You for your outstanding contribution to our wedding.
Your combined efforts with the music and dance instruction made mere dreams of our special day become reality.
It is a tribute to your work and your preoccupation with detail that our guests are still giving us rave reviews.”
Debbie and Bernie
“They say every cloud has a silver lining, and you were the silver lining to our cloud.
Having our DJ “bail out” on us just two months before the wedding was a horrendous experience. Your professionalism showed through in every aspect and you helped calm some very ruffled feathers.
As if that was not enough, to have the same thing happen again with the video, and this time with less than a month to go, was a disaster of “Titanic” proportions.
One more time, you “pulled a rabbit out of your very talented hat.” All of this proved one thing – “YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!”

Our Line Array creates room engulfing sound at 1/2 the volume of box speakers.
While we truly believe you can't afford to not have the "E7" experience, if you budget the whole event properly, we accept that if you really don't want to invest that much, we are happy to still create a wonderful wedding or event experience, as we do for many DJs that hire us for their overflow. We get great reviews from these clients, so it's still pretty awesome.
We love to play proms and school dances, since our music is super up to date and who better than youth to appreciate the newest tunes? We offer special pricing to help you have the party you deserve, especially on a weeknight, leaving the weekends for higher demand events. Let's get your party started!
We've done lots of events for Habitat for Humanity, Autism, Cancer, Connect4Life and other groups who need their events to raise money. We even offer our own silent auction contributions. Same great sound, lighting, music, DJ/MC and effort, even a corporate ice-breaker dance lesson, all focussed on helping them make a difference. Join the fight, and dance all night.
