Vendor Recommendations

Let me assist you in assembling a great “team” for your event!

Whether for a wedding, anniversary/birthday party, or company summer outing, the success of your event depends largely on assembling an experienced, talented, and cohesive “team” for the services and goods you need.

Over the course of three plus decades in the wedding/event biz, I’ve developed a network of trusted individuals and businesses who I work closely with to create great value and memorable events for our clients. They’re talented in their areas of expertise and a pleasure to work with. I recommend them in complete confidence because we know an event is measured by its overall success, and that means working together in a team-effort for our clients.

This is an ever-changing and never-complete list, so please check back frequently. Personal contact and service is an absolute-must for me, so whenever possible, I’ve included direct contact information. Two things… 1) Because you DON’T see a business listed here doesn’t mean I don’t recommend them. Far from it. Again, this is an ever-changing list with plenty of “additions” upcoming (plus “subtractions” if the situation calls for it!). Be sure to check back regularly ūüôā 2) Many of the following business and individuals provide me stellar recommendations to their clients and contacts, and it’s VERY important to me that they know I do likewise. When reaching-out to these businesses and individuals, please let them know you obtained their information from the listings you see here.

Disc Jockeys…

What????!!!! Am I crazy for listing my competitors on my website?¬† Ummm… maybe. But maybe not ūüėČ

The folks you see listed below ARE my competitors. But they’re also personal friends, live here in our community, and are damn good at what they do! We’re all “long-timers” in the wedding/mobile event business, and came to the same conclusion eons ago… there are a lot of BAD wedding DJ’s out there and plenty of opportunities for professionals committed to doing the job right. Because we’re all single owner-operators (assisted by our lovely wives) — not large operations employing multiple DJ’s — we found it mutually beneficial to refer clients back n’ forth in instances when we’re booked or unavailable. We now meet informally (usually over a couple of beers) several times a year to discuss new trends in the industry, the latest in equipment & technology, and share experiences. We help one another as much as possible because, in the end, our clients ultimately benefit from both our competition and cooperation! So if I’m booked or unavailable for your date, reach-out to these guys and please let them know I sent you their way…
