Ever since i started playing guitar and writing songs at age 5 i knew that a career in music was going to be in the cards for me. As a Child and young adult i spent countless hours buying, listening and reading the liner notes of every record i could get my hands on. I listened to "Are you Experienced" by Jimi Hendrix, "Who's Next" by the Who, Meet the Beatles, Rumours by Fleetwood Mac, Al Green, Smokey Robinson, Bob Marley are just a handful of records/artists i POURED over and dissected and practically inhaled. I simply could not (and still can't) listen to enough music. I love finding great new artists and songs to share. I love discussing it with fellow music lovers (many of whom are my clients!). At weddings and the events i dj i love to weave a tapestry of sound that is so pleasing that guests can't help but feel moved by it. From dj'ing a couple of thousand events i have develop an amazing "feel" for the dance floor...in the same dance set you could possibly hear "love on top" by Beyonce, Let's stay together by Al Green, and "Sexyback" by Justin Timberlake. I have a long track record of packing dance floors. I would be honoured to discuss your event. Please feel free to contact me!

David and Charissa,
Thank you so much for helping us make Isabelle's Bat Mitzvah a truly joyous event! Everyone (and I mean everyone) had a great time. Dave, The music was terrific and captured the energy in the room, MC Alberto was great and a pleasure to work with, the dancers were fabulous and Charissa, your help putting it all together was amazing! We also had tons of people raving about the magician - he really blew people away. The caricature artist was also a big hit! And grown ups and kids alike were lining up for the photo booth. Your photographer Russ was a true professional and had a wonderful personality to work with - I cannot wait to see the photos!
Truly, thank you for helping us put this all together. Your experience and expertise were invaluable! We don't have a date yet for our son Matthew's Bar Mitzvah, but you will be my first call when we do!

It was great meeting you and working with you on our event. The guests loved your dj’ing and music selection and the violinist was killer. It was nice to be able to rent the up lights too. I’ll definitely be adding Expressway Music to our recommended vendors list at IBM.
It was a blast and thanks again!
