Why I Love Weddings:
Nothing beats the atmosphere of a wedding day. The nerves, excitement, and anxiousness all leading up the that moment when you say “I do,” and then it’s all smiles. It’s an amazing feeling seeing everyone up and dancing to the music I’m playing, knowing I have a part in it so that the best day of the Bride and Grooms’ life is also a perfect night.
A Little Bit About Myself:
I was born and raised in South Jersey, and continue to live here. I first became obsessed with music when my father would take me to his Jazz band rehearsals as a child. Since then I’ve taken on playing multiple instruments, composed and performed music covering the Tri-State area, over to Ohio, and down to Florida. Pursuing my interest in music and the science of sound, I got my Associates in Live Sound and Audio Engineering. Since then I’ve worked at a recording studio for over four years. I’ve also worked productions and promotions for B98.5, Thunder 106, and The Breeze radio stations, putting me neck deep in audio equipment and gaining vital hands on experience so I can quickly assess any problems that may occur to ensure that your special night goes off flawlessly.
How I Handle Music Requests:
The Bride and Groom are the bosses of what gets played at their wedding, so whatever they say goes. My musical taste spans over almost any genre, so I’ll be more than happy to jam out and cater to whatever you’d like. If you want me to mix it up I can mix it up, but I have no problem sticking to a strict list if that is what you prefer.
As a music lover I’ve tried to surround my life with it and learn all I can about it. I love to play and compose, from classical and jazz to indie, dance, and metal. I play guitar, saxophone, piano, drums, and sing. I’ve made my own guitar and like to fix instruments as well as audio equipment. I love being outdoors and camping, having a hobby of astrophotography. The beach is also a must, you can catch me bodyboarding and longboarding to good tunes all summer long.
