For those of you who have never heard of me or have never seen me, I hope that the website assists you in choosing my services. As for answering the question, why choose me, let me try to help you with that answer. I'll begin by stating that I love playing music and entertaining people. I find the greatest satisfaction in making people happy and will work very hard to make that happen. In the end, if you're happy, I'm happy. The truth is, you only have one chance to make a reception, banquet party or any other celebration a memorable one. I strive for every event to be as unique as it is personal. So what else can I tell you to convince you that I'm the right person for you to hire? Well, I have over twenty years of event experiences and I am very confident in my public speaking skills. I have successfully entertained many wedding receptions, corporate events, school functions and other various types of parties. I work with each client individually to execute their itineraries and help them to fulfill their event visions. I want to exceed your expectations and being flexible is a big part of that, even if that means changes on the day of the event. I will make sure you get to enjoy the moment! When the moment calls for formality, I will act and dress the part. When it is time for fun, I will bring the energy and passion necessary to entertain your guests. I have the ability to be interactive and make your guests feel at ease on the dance floor, but I can also let the music take over and keep the dance floor busy. Lastly, I arrive on time with quality equipment and backup equipment. For a list of equipment click here. I am very dependable, even the flood of 2011 did not stop me from serving my commitments to my clients.
