Hey there! I'm DJ Tommy Pirone. I have over 10 years of experience in the music and entertainment industry. My passion for music started on piano at the age of 11, in middle school I dabbled in trumpet, and then I switched to drum set and singing when Blink 182 and System of a Down were popular in school (our band rocked the 8th grade dance...oh yeah!). In college, my professor dressed up in a full Easter Bunny outfit one day and announced he was starting a special studies DJ class (deadmau5 put him up to it). I joined this class and fell in love with DJing. After graduating college with a degree in music I started my own company, Pirone Entertainment. I've been a full-time Wedding DJ Professional ever since. Pirone Entertainment is located an hour north of Atlanta, GA in a beautiful wedding destination town called Dahlonega. Nice to meet you!
