2012 Best Wedding DJ A-List Award for Tampa Bay



Lighting That Transforms a Room!

 

In the last few years LED Uplighting has taken off and is becoming a must have at every wedding reception. With a little bit of color you can transform a room. But Uplighting is just the start. With a bit of lighting design you can take things to the next level as shown in our before and after images above.  For this wedding over at Lange Farm our sister company, The Production Crew  projected over 6 visually stunning custom gobos that reflected the wedding’s theme and decor. This truly made the room pop. TPC framed out the entire ceiling with these projections and dimmed them to an appropriate level in order to still compliment the uplit walls. With resources such as TPC the possibilities are endless. Thank you to Audrey Snow for the beautiful After Photo.

someone that is willing to be flexible and work to your needs. I do just that. I will not only act
as your DJ and MC but also your coordinator, working with the venue and the photographer.

Tampa Museum of Art Wedding

I recently had the pleasure of DJing a wedding over at the Tampa Museum of Art in downtown Tampa.  The Wedding was produced by Beth Carrick with Flawless Occasions who is always such a pleasure to work with.  This isn’t the first time I have worked over at the Museum as our sister company The Production Crew had done some lighting there for one of the first weddings since its opening. Unfortunately however we weren’t able to get any quality pictures of our work until now….

Dance Floor Filler!

Got to love this song!  Its seems to be the new favorite among my weddings the last few months.


Ceremony Music

So Vitamin String Quartet has really taken off in the last few years. They essentially do current contemporary music to strings. Really cool stuff. If you have never heard them, check out there youtube channel at

They even pull off a little Kanye West String Style.

If strings aren’t your thing here a few other songs that are a little off from tradition but work great for times like your recessional.

  • Rhythm of Love By Plain White T’s
  • Must Have Done Something Right By Reliant K
  • What A Wonderful World By The Ramones

Great New Dance Song!

I am constantly looking for new songs to use for the first dance, father daughter, mother son, introductions…etc….  If we can break the mold that everyone else does we are able to really create a unique wedding that is truly the couples. I will go into detail on some of my suggestions for First Dances in later post but for now I have to share this song.
