From a young age I was always interested in music. One of the first groups I was introduced to by my father was The Beach Boys. I loved their sound and great vocals as I still do today. Growing up with my dad listening to 50’s and 60’s Rock n’ Roll and my mother listening to country music I got to know both ends of the spectrum. As I grew older I began to play music on my father’s reel to reel and his 45’s. That's when I found the love of playing music for others. With some cash in hand I went to Radio Shack, bought my first mixer and hooked it up to a set of home stereo speakers. The big ones we had in the 80’s and 90’s, Oak with black front. They were great. Two Sony CD players and I was set. My first gig was was booked, a family pool party at my uncle’s house, and I rocked it. The rest is history. This was back in about 1995. Big change from then to today. Anything is possible with dedication! Interests: camping, photography, music, trains, emergency services, swimming, the beach & family!
My love for music started as far back as I can remember into my childhood. Growing up my father was a truck driver so country/western music was a big part of my early childhood. My mother was into the swing style music of the 50’s-70’s with some rock mixed in here and there. As I continued to grow, I found my love for music was deeper than I could ignore. That’s when I started exploring other genres and styles to include some early 80’s-90’s hip hop and so on. My first “event” was in March of 2005, my step father’s surprise birthday party. I played for close family and friends. They raved about the party I performed for them. It motivated me to be better and to do something better with my enthusiasm of music. Since then, I continue to strive for excellence at every event I’m invited to be a part of. Hobbies/Interests: being the best father I can be to my children; being the best husband I can be to my loving wife (EST 2012); passion for emergency services and helping our community; always growing to be a better person; bowling with my children and anything out doors involving my family.
Growing up as the youngest sibling of three, I learned early on that my outgoing personality and ability to entertain folks was a unique talent that I greatly enjoyed. The first memory of this nature which stands out to me was my impeccable Steve Urkel impersonation, “Did I do that?” from the TV sitcom “Family Matters”. Although looking back this is a slightly embarrassing childhood memory, it was the starting point in my journey and passion for having fun while entertaining others.In addition to an inherent passion for entertaining, I have developed an appreciation for a wide variety of music from my love for the folk roots of Bob Dylan to the new hits of Bruno Mars and everything in between. As my current role of emcee, I greatly enjoy making sure everyone at your next party has an enjoyable time making the memories that last a lifetime.
