Jennifer and Perry (Southpointe Golf Club Reception)

Earlier tonight I was out at the Southpointe Golf Club for the wedding reception of Jennifer Minter & Perry Patterson. It was a bit overcast today, but it turned out to be a perfect day for a wedding. Jennifer & Perry were such a blast to work with in preparing for the big day.


Jennifer & Perry knew exactly the music that their friends and family would enjoy all night long. They even turned me on to some very cool instrument Beastie Boys songs that we used during dinner. I love it when people add a few special touches like that to make the music show their own style.

Mitch & Nicole Patterline referred me to Jenn & Perry. I played their wedding back in September 2006 and it was SO great to see them again! Happy 2nd Anniversary!


All weddings are joyous occasions, but as I was looking through my photos I love how much everyone is laughing, smiling and hugging. It was a fantastic night and I’m glad to have been a part of it. Thanks Jenn & Perry, have a GREAT time in Italy!


Ellen and Ron (Soldiers and Sailors Reception)

This labor day weekend I had the chance to perform at Soldiers and Sailors Museum in Oakland for the wedding of Ellen Bobrow and Ronald Nestico. Working with Ellen & Ron was so much fun, they had a lot of great ideas to make their day so unique. They had the room setup with different food stations that featured a variety of ethnic foods… the food was amazing.


Ellen & Ron chose a nice variety of music for the reception, including some great Italian favorites for dinner. They are big 80’s fans, they chose some amazingly great party songs for their guests to dance to.

You have to sing along to “Living On A Prayer” – you just HAVE to!


I can’t say enough how great it was to work with Ellen & Ron, they were so much fun and it was clear that they were having a great time all night long!


Amy and Perry

Last Saturday I played at the reception of Amy Romano and Perry Dubois at St John’s in New Castle, PA. I’ve known Amy & her family for many years and was honored that they asked me to perform for their more than 300 guests.


Amy & Perry left the entire dancing portion of the evening open for their guests to make requests and night ended up being a giant mix of every style of music imaginable!

There were quite a few younger people at the wedding, and one of the flower girls, Alyssa, hung out with me behind the DJ booth for most of the evening. She was only 10 but helped me take requests and handout the trinkets that the brides mom brought for all the guests. Someday she’ll make a great DJ.


The dance floor was jammed pack all night long and everyone had an amazing time. The Romano’s put a lot of effort into creating a beautiful day for Amy & Perry. Thanks for letting me be a part of it!

Lisa and Scott (Imperial SNPJ)

Earlier tonight I got to play at the wedding reception of Lisa Lutz and Scott Meehan. The reception was held at the SNPJ in Imperial, PA.


Lisa and Scott where so much fun to work with, they had a lot of great ideas for their reception, but also left lots of room for their guests to make requests.

Lisa danced more than any bride I’ve seen in a LONG time. She really helped keep the dancefloor going by grabbing friends and family and taking them with her to the dancefloor.


Amy and Ryan (St. Florian Hall)

Last night I had the pleasure of playing at the wedding reception of Amy Zdan and Ryan Bartoe at the St. Florian Hall in Wintersville, Ohio.

Amy and Ryan were a fun couple and really had a good time choosing music for the entire reception. It was really clear how important family was to both of them and they worked really hard to include everyone in their special day.


If you take a look at their playlist you can see that they included music for every age group. Disco, Rap, Rock and even some stuff for the younger generation… it was great that everyone got a chance to take the dancefloor and enjoy the music.

It was a beautiful evening full of great moments and great music. Ryan and Amy were such a joy to work with and I’m glad I was able to help out on their special day!

Amie and Greg (Shakespeare’s Castle DJ)

This past Saturday I played at the reception of Amie Hack and Greg Donahue at the Olde Stonewall Golf Club in Ellwood City. It was a beautiful day for them to get married on the deck overlooking the golf course.

Amie and Greg totally understood how to make their day unique, and really applied their ideas in a variety of unique and fun ways. They included some live music in their day as well as hiring my services. They had a harpist and violinist for their ceremony which was beautiful. Amie’s 88 year old grandfather, Ray, performed songs during the Anniversary dance while her father Dennis accompanied him on the guitar. Then as a special surprise, Johnny Cash showed up! (ok, it was actually Pastor Rick Roberts from the ceremony) Johnny (Rick) had a whole band with him and entertained everyone with selections including “Jackson” and “Ring of Fire”.

I got a chance to entertain everyone too. Amie and Greg gave allowed me to do whatever I needed to keep the dancefloor busy. We covered a lot of ground from Rock to Rap and everyone seemed to have a fantastic time dancing.

The day was packed full of such great and memorable events that I’m sure everyone will be talking about this reception for years to come. My favorite moment was watching the newlyweds dance their first dance which they had worked out some special choreography to make it special, it was a sweet moment where you could just see how much they belong together. The entire evening went really smoothly, but even I felt that it went by really fast. Amie and Greg were a complete joy to work with, and both of them and their families went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and appreciated. I’m so glad I was able to help them create a day that went so perfectly.
