Q: How many years have you been involved in weddings on the Outer Banks?
I officially started my wedding entertainment business about 5 years ago but over the past 12 years I've performed at weddings for friends, family, and clients.
Q: What do you love about OBX weddings?
My favorite things about OBX weddings are the couples and the vendors. Most of the couples I work with have been coming to the Outer Banks their entire lives and wouldn't get married anywhere else! The OBX is so picturesque and everything runs on a different pace - I think that the couples appreciate it and want to share it with their friends and family (some who have never been here before). I've also realized that some of my previous clients are now having children, coming back to the Outer Banks, and creating even more memories.
We have such a diverse group of talented vendors here on the Outer Banks and all of them work very hard to create the perfect day for their clients. The vendors here are fun, smart, professional, and detail-oriented. You couldn't ask for a better group of co-workers! Many of them have become good friends!
Q: What is unique about your business? What are you known for?
My business is unique because I am a musician and a DJ. Clients get the best of both worlds and services range from live music with vocals, acoustic, or ukulele to DJ Services including announcements, emceeing, party lights, wireless mics, and music that is sure to get the crowd moving!
What sets us apart? Most of our clients are planning their weddings remotely so we provide an all-inclusive entertainment experience that covers all their musical needs. We are responsive and answer emails quickly and there is a single point of contact; rather than having to juggle multiple musicians and a DJ, clients can coordinate with one person who will handle everything!
Q: What are you most excited about for the 2018 Outer Banks Wedding Weekend and Expo? Do you have any advice for a couple that is interested in booking your services?
I love the energy in the air at the Expo! It's so much fun to meet all the excited couples and see all my colleagues and their offerings. We are especially excited to be offering band packages this year! There is a 4-piece and a 6-piece option and both include a solo acoustic ceremony and cocktail hour!
To couples interested in booking my services (as well as others): book early! All too often I have to turn potential clients down because I'm already booked.
Q: Are you participating in any tour stops?
I will be playing and DJing live and in-person at Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe in Nags Head on the Expo Tour!
