Hiring a live band can be a scary proposition. By their very nature, you are hiring a group of people to play the music that they know and can perform well. So what if your event has a wide variety of people? Or what if you only want a “party band” during the dance, but […]
Country Chic weddings are not too shabby.
We live in Texas and what says “Texas” more than a country-style wedding? Surprisingly to a lot of people, the Dallas/Fort Worth area is consistently ranked as one of the top wedding cities in America when looking at weddings per capita. As a result of this fact, weddings in Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, and the […]
How to (not) sabotage your own wedding. :^)
Wedding days are full of expectations, excitement, and lots of opinions. Many times, these expectations are laid on a bride & groom by parents, friends, the internet, or even vendors that they have hired. Part of what I do is give brides & grooms the benefit of experience as to what to expect during your […]
Asking a DJ about wedding etiquette?
Being a wedding DJ & MC is (admittedly) an odd profession. Most of us did not set out to be a “wedding professional”, but over the course of years as a professional mobile DJ, some of us naturally gravitate to the energy, excitement, meaning and beauty of a wedding day. In the “old days” people […]
Wedding budgets & when to book vendors
There are only two things I know that can be spent in this life: money and time. When planning a wedding it is best to identify how much of each you have and make plans accordingly. Some of the best advice I ever received about planning major events was to try and figure out to […]
Get 2013 off to a running start.
It is always great to start the year with recognition within my chosen profession. So I am happy to be chosen among the top 5% of professionals in my field by a leading online wedding planning website (more on that in a future post). But it is truly my greatest honor when Brides & Grooms […]
Best choice for weddings is Solid Gold
I am happy and humbled to announce that today I was awarded the coveted Wedding Wire Gold rating. This means that over 30 brides & grooms rated me at 5-Stars in 2012. For those who are interested in such things, remember that these are ratings for me personally, not a company with a bunch of […]
Wedding Cinema – Starring You!
Weddings should be all about the bride and groom and those whom they wish to honor at their reception. One of my roles as a professional DJ & Master Of Ceremonies is to help facilitate the wishes of my brides and grooms and not be the star-of-the-show. I am so pleased to share the video […]
Are you really a Master Of Ceremonies – or what Brides & Grooms fear most?
With Fall now here, I am always reminded of Halloween and the scary costumes that people now gravitate to. But in the world of weddings, there are few things scarier to a bride than a loud-mouthed, cheesy DJ masquerading as a professional Master Of Ceremony. I received a call recently that illustrated this fact very […]
Wedding & Special Event Band – The Metroplexers
Non-stop Party Rock! That is the motto of DFW party band, The Metroplexers. The Metroplexers are having a great year playing weddings, special events, and even special night club showcases. Most professional party bands in the DFW area are too expensive for a lot of budgets or they are simply too big. Did you know […]
