Introduction

Wedding crowds are only going to admire your mixing skills so much. Every generation will understand how fun, outgoing and professional you are on the mic that will separate you from the rest of your competition. Learn more here.

Interaction is the Key
04:01

At every gig you get to perform at, you always want to put your best foot forward. Think of yourself as an injection of professionalism and class - like Frank Sinatra! This is incredible marketing for yourself into the future.

Be a Professional from the Get Go

Here, we talk about the importance of interacting with your crowd beginning with the cocktail hour. It's not just all cocktails and hors d'oeuvres! There are things you can do during this important time.

Start During the Cocktail Hour

For most gigs, you aren't just a DJ at a wedding. You're also the host and MC of the evening. In this video, we'll teach you how to make your guests feel welcome and comment about how well-run the wedding was.

A Very Welcoming Cocktail Hour Announcement

Make a Connection with the Bridal Party

Dance dance dance! You don't have to be Michael Jackson status to get on the dance floor and shake your tail feather. We dance at most every single one of our weddings and never get complaints. Of course we keep it fun & professional and don't overdo it to the point that we're slacking. DJ Tommy is a master of getting out and dancing with people and is probably the number one KEY action that built our business so quickly in a short amount of time with very little marketing dollars.

Get on the Dance Floor

As a Wedding DJ and MC, you have to master the Ice Breaker to get people to "let their hair down" and have fun. Learn more in this video!

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!
