21 Years and counting

I started my career as a roadie, loading, setting up and tearing down equipment for events.  I worked for a company called Muzic Fuzion right out of high school.  After a year of being a roadie, I became a DJ, mostly playing music for school dances.  I then advanced into djing wedding receptions and I knew this is what I wanted to do for life.  After working for Muzic Fuzion for 3 years and also working at Dick Clark's American Bandstand, I started my own company called Encore Entertainment.  I thought, becoming a DJ in Columbus Ohio should not be hard to do.  There were plenty of wedding venues and party houses to build a business.  I was blessed to first get in with Franklin Park Conservatory my first year.  They really pushed my business into the next level.  I was then able to buy a 2nd system hire a 2nd DJ and It just kept growing from there.  I partnered with other venues, bought more equipment and hired more DJs.  I had turned my single operation company into a multi-op company.  We specialized in wedding receptions but performed for many different events.

Photo booths came out in about 2006 and I jumped on that bandwagon as soon as possible.  I was the third company in Columbus to have a photo booth and that grew from day 1.  Photo Booths have progressed from 11 years ago and is now unbelievable what you can do with a computer, camera and software.

As I continue to grow and expand, hiccups have come along the way from bad people working for me to personal family health issues.  But God has been good and has blessed me, my business and my family.  I thank Him everyday!  I'm coming into my 18th year of being in business and I want to say thank you to all our past clients, upcoming clients, the venues and vendors we work with and of course my team of DJ's, photo booth attendants and videographers.  I look forward to the upcoming years of and I pray God blesses us all.
