How did you get started in this business?
I started when I was 15. I went to a private high school and started doing all of these elaborate Sweet 16’s for kids in my class. One of the girl’s parents owned and banquet hall and asked if I was interested in doing weddings… I said SURE! And have been doing this ever since!
What are some of your favorite aspects of your business?
I really enjoy the performance end of it, like going out and doing my thing on the wedding day. I also really like the industry as a whole and the culture that goes along with it.
What song/music is in heavy rotation for you right now?
Depends on the area, but Country music is pretty popular right now and artists like Bruno Mars and Cardi B and at the top of the playlists.
What is your favorite movie and/or book genre?
I love the action dramas and the Marvel Movies! Iron Man is my man crush.
What is your favorite season and why?
I like Fall especially for outdoor weddings. Not too hot and not too chilly. Just right.
What is your favorite part of a wedding?
Since I am a DJ, I love to see people dancing and just having a great time!
What is your fondest wedding memory-either from your wedding, if you are married, or from a wedding you attended?
Years ago (seems like forever), the bride’s Uncle Phil got up out of nowhere and did the most amazing rendition of Mack the Knife. The way the place reacted was priceless and sent everyone into a dancing frenzy!
What is your best advice for a couple planning their wedding?
Don’t wait to book the wedding pros you want or really enjoy meeting. The good ones go quick!
What is a common mistake you see couples make while planning a wedding?
Waiting too long to get back to you after they meet and or request information… and not budgeting enough for what they want.
What is one of your hobbies?
Being a dad of three kids under four years old, it has become changing diapers and running after kids! But I also enjoy drama and action movies and trying different Pizza out from all over.
What brought you to the Lehigh Valley?
My wife! I am originally from Hazleton and moved to the Lehigh valley 4 1/2 years ago when I got married.
What is your favorite restaurant to eat at in the Lehigh Valley? Your favorite dish to order?
What do you wish couples knew about your part of the wedding industry?
While a lot of DJs offer the same “stuff”, there is a talent component that is so very often overlooked. How that person sounds on the microphone and their MC abilities are just as important as their skill set on putting together a good playlist. And the music programming skill set too. It’s more than just playing the same crappy wedding go-tos at every event. The couples I work with tend to have pretty specific ideas of what they like and don’t like and I enjoy working in and around that to make it happen as they see it in their mind.
What is the best way for a couple to prepare to meet with you?
I’m pretty accessible by phone, email or text. Not much to prep. Just come with an idea of what you want or what you don’t want…that’s a good start.
