Today we have a Wedding DJ interview with Mark from Top Tier Entertainment, based in St. Louis, MO. Enjoy!
Tell us about yourself and how you started.
I’m a husband and father of four wonderful kids. I am from St. Louis and attended St. Louis Priory for high school. I graduated from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO in 2000 with a degree in Communication. I started Djing the summer after my freshman year in high school. I can still remember the first event I ever worked. It was a company barbeque in Columbia, MO. I knew I was hooked from that first event. From that day forward I knew I had one of the most enjoyable and rewarding jobs I would ever have.

Today’s wedding DJ interview is with David of Expressway Music DJ’s, based in New York, NY! Enjoy:
Tell us about yourself and how you started Djing.
My folks had three kids by the time they were 23 and my mother, who played guitar, always had a daily mix of the Beatles playing coupled with AM radio playing in the backround. In those days AM Radio (especially WABC)played the top hits of the day. By 5 years old my brother and I were taking guitar lessons…soon after we writing songs (we are both published songwriters) but what really got me into DJ’ing was that my folks had many house parties and I was responsible for the playlist. At 10 years old I would poke my head out of our tiny stereo room and looking on the dance floor (which was our dining room)…..In my head I was always putting songs that I thought fit together well (at that time it was something like “honky tonk woman” going into “superstition”)..but ever since then I’ve been dj’ing for every type of event you can imagine and then some.
Today’s wedding musician interview is with Rick and Jennifer of Syrendell and Reverend Tan based in Davis, CA. Enjoy!
Tell us about yourself and how you started playing.
Rick is a harpist and pianist. Jennifer is a flutist. We both started playing our instruments as young children and continued to play and teach into adulthood. In the late 90’s we had a wonderful man build us a custom harp and Rick took to it right away. We have been composing our own music together for over 20 years! We are married with four children and live in beautiful Davis, California. We also officiate all types of wedding ceremonies and often officiate and play our instruments for weddings and events.
