Belltower Chapel & Garden – helping children one wedding at a time.
Fort Worth, Texas has many beautiful places to hold your wedding event. The Marquis On Magnolia, the downtown YWCA, and the Ashton Hotel are all great.

In-store promotionals add value and FUN!
Part of being a well-rounded DJ & MC (announcer too!) is helping to promote brand awareness, venues or products on location.

The ups & downs of UpLights.
The digital revolution has changed the music industry. No longer do mobile disc jockeys carry around hundreds of CDs (I used to carry as many as 2,300 to each event!). The advent of the MP3 allows us to use hard drives the size of a handful of CDs and have the equivalent amount of music. […]
Night or day – I love all kinds of weddings.
Wedding receptions each have their own energy. Some call it the vibe or atmosphere. Whatever it is, it is the way the event makes you and your guests feel while you are there and how you remember the day after it has happened. Most of the time it is not possible to know what the […]
