- What makes Klock Entertainment Unique?
What makes Klock Entertainment unique is the dynamic in talent bundled with us being a full-time engine and licensed business. With these two things, it allows us to properly produce and execute our couples’ wants, loves, and needs for their special event. Another thing that makes us unique is our staff who work with their heart and work events because they love doing it. Everyone I hire and including myself has a true passion for helping our clients maximize the celebration of life’s moments.
- What are the popular entertainment (and/or design) choices 2015 couples are making?
In 2015 we are seeing many couples create an elegant light package that can still progress with the energy of the event. Instead of just place some up lights around their venue space, we are working with couples to create a programmed lighting experience to help enhance their special moments such as first dance, parents dances, and opening the dance floor after dinner. The term used for this is “Programmable Intelligent Lighting”. We are also seeing many of couples choose to pin light certain objects in their venue space such as their cake, picture table, or dessert table. Up Lighting is still extremely popular and can completely enhance any space. We are finding it is becoming more what we can do with the Up Lighting or Programming of other types of lighting, which is what truly adds a proper design for each individual reception space.
- What is your best piece of advice for couples on the hunt for the perfect wedding DJ?
The best piece of advice is to make sure you like the person you’re hiring. I know that may sound silly, but regardless if they are a DJ, Photographer, etc. you have to spend time with that vendor during very important moments of your life. Additionally, I highly recommend going with somebody who is operating a licensed business. Whether they are a solo-opp or Multi-Opp that doesn’t matter as much as them being able to prove legitimacy through a strong track record, reviews, and longevity. Our Event Specialist and Full Time DJ, Nick Fortini has recently written this blog on choosing the right DJ for your needs.
- Outside of the entertainment industry, what brings you the most happiness?
When I’m not working for Klock Entertainment or working an event, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Jess and our twins Avalyn & Elijah (who just turned two). We also have a third on the way due around Christmas! I also try to spend an hour a day or so doing some sort of personal fitness to keep the mind cleansed and fueled for the next opportunity life may bring!
