I'm late to the party when it comes to blogging but there's no better time than the present. My goal is to provide insight to how I work, how I advise the couples that I have the pleasure of performing for, and what you can expect on your wedding night. This is fun for me as I love to write and I hope to peel back the curtain on the wedding industry. So let's start with the basic "about me" info!

I got started in this business by being at the right place at the right time. I've always been a music fanatic. I was part of the first generation to watch MTV and I tell people that David Lee Roth was my babysitter! I've always had this knack for memorizing who sang what, what year it came out, who was in the band and why a song was written. I also found myself having an uncanny ability to figure out what song should come after another as I would play cassette tapes in my bedroom. One could say I've been djing my whole life. 

I remember going to weddings at age 5 and going up to the DJ asking him to play songs by Sheila E and Morris Day. They were shocked that I knew these names. I wasn't afraid to bust a move. I remember being an R.A. at Northern Kentucky University one fateful night when Mike Manzi came in to DJ a halloween party for the residents. He had injured his back and I offered to help carry his equipment. As I'm helping him he asks "Do you know anything about music"? "A little bit" was my reply. He invited me to follow him around and learn the DJ business. I took to it like a duck to water and never looked back. 

22 years later I still love being apart of the most special events that people will experience. 22 years later, I'm still so thankful for Mike Manzi "The Maestro" taking me under his wing and showing me the ropes. 22 years later, I still feel the same tug at my heartstrings watching a first dance, a father daughter dance, a mother dancing with her son. 22 years later, I get to share these experiences with my 8 year old daughter who helps her Daddy out. This isn't just a business for me. It's a legacy that I hope to hand down to my children. I've had to adapt. over the years and this website is just one piece of that process. Thank you for being apart of my journey over these twenty plus years and thank you for allowing me to be a small part of yours!! - Tyler
