The thing that blesses my soul- why I do this- is when people are dancing and shouting and hugging and high-fiving and singing every word. They send that energy to me and I send it back to them and pretty soon it's a lovefest! Those are the moments that sink in to your soul and add to the goodness of life.
Over the years, as a DJ, I've performed a few mock wedding ceremonies at bridal fashion shows and open houses. I've also performed vow renewals that didn't require ordination because they were already married. I've made it legal and can perform your ceremony either added to a DJ package or as a stand alone service.
I'm the DJ at a local resort pool in the Summer months. In 2020, I was handed the starring role in their weekly cowboy dinner show in the Winter months for 3 years. I grew to love sharing stories and songs with the travelers to the exotic land of Arizona. Great for corporate or church groups or other social occasions.
I had a rich experience with music as a boy that changed the course of my life. It's hard to understand why some of us like this kind and others like that kind but whatever it is that you like, after we're done, you'll love music more. Perfect for a social club, church group, senior center or school.

I have a few equipment and service options that range from $300 to $2400 depending on date and services provided. A simple weekday event for a small crowd with no major choreography or planning and a small sound system would be on the low end. On the high end I offer a full production event with multiple sound systems for a ceremony and cocktails and then dancing, decor lighting, custom monogram projection and dance floor lighting. Saturdays between mid September and mid May and a couple of popular holidays like New Year's Eve are high demand. Weekdays and anytime in the summer months, I'm negotiable. If I'm inside of 6 weeks and I don't have a booking, I'll negotiate even on those peak Saturdays in season because my opportunity to be working at all is diminishing.
Based in Phoenix Arizona, I travel all over the Southwestern U.S. or fly to other states. No added travel fee for anywhere in the Phoenix Metropolitan area, Flagstaff, Sedona, Tucson, Showlow/Pinetop or points between. Travel expenses to distant locales are negotiable when we figure out what you need. I have a son in California and another in Utah and I can always make a hiking adventure out of any trip and I'll get flexible for those reasons.
Services can be mixed and matched. I could officiate your wedding as a cowboy or provide a game hosting duties for your rehearsal dinner like a trivia game or a music bingo game or add some life to a Celebration of Life. Let's talk about what you want to have happen and see what equipment and services we'll need and I'll quote a specific price. 50% will be due as a retainer because I will be turning away other work for your date. We'll spell it all out, plan the event and produce a contract together. The balance will be due when we have our final quality control call about a week or 10 days before your event. We'll review the timeline/script and make sure I've captured your vision and you can pay then. I'm fully insured and can provide a Certificate of Insurance to your venue as required.
