We DJ’d a wedding and brought our photo booth to Tycoga Winery on June 11 and we just got some great feedback! Thank you!
“Master Entertainment was a great help for the whole experience. They were great with help for the pre-planning and keeping the night moving along as planned out. The DJ was very involved in making sure the night was as special as could be. The photo booth added great memories to the day and helped keep the night fun and exciting. Thanks Master Entertainment! I would highly recommend you to anyone.”

A wedding is one of the most special days in a person’s life and a day of celebration shared with family and friends. The wedding entertainment you choose helps to create and maintain the air of celebration, turning the day into a really memorable event. Entertainment at a wedding has many practical uses as well, such as adding structure to the day and breaking the ice between guests.
There are quite a few options for entertainment at a wedding. Many people first think of a live band. Live bands provide music and entertainment and are very popular at weddings. Lately, we’ve been seeing more and more comedians, mentalists, and magicians at weddings. These types of entertainment get the guests at your wedding to participate and adds an extra “wow” factor.
The entertainment we see most often is the DJ. DJs play a vital role at weddings. From before the reception even begins, your DJ is behind the scenes preparing a timeline for the whole night. There’s nothing worse than running out of time for special dances, favorite songs, or speeches. You should be able to count on your DJ to get out on the floor and keep the guests happy all while ensuring all the special moments you want happen on time and aren’t rushed. This is especially important as most photographers don’t stay all night. Your DJ will make sure all the important events of the night happen before the photographer leaves so you can be confident that all special moments were captured on film.
We appreciate getting feedback from our clients! This was from a wedding we had our photo booth at on June 11. These guys were great to work with and we’re so glad we got to be part of their day!
“We had reached out to Johnathan back in February to inquire about our wedding date. After inquiring, we weren’t sure if we had wanted a manned photobooth or do our own. As the date got closer, Johnathan took it upon himself to notify us that our date was still available and we jumped on the chance. It was the best decision we made for our wedding! It was so popular that our attendant was busy the whole time we had it scheduled. The guests loved it and enjoyed the experience! I am so glad that Johnathan reached out to us because it definitely helped make our day that much better! Thank you so much!”

Amanda, DJ JoCo, Derek
On Friday the 13th of May, we had the pleasure of celebrating the marriage of Amanda and Derek. We had a party! They got married at the Watchtower Lodge in Blackhawk State Park. We lit the ceremony room and provided audio while Lewis Knudsen played guitar. The ceremony was packed and we had standing room only. It was such an awesome experience. We then moved into the main room and enjoyed the rest of the evening. We had our photo booth in the lobby and we uplit the room and DJed/emceed the night. For a Friday night, they had a ton of guests! The dance floor was so full, we had to move tables out to make more room. I really enjoyed working with this couple.
Congrats Amanda and Derek!

Justin and Rick Harrison
It’s not summer yet, but it sure feels like it. The weather has finally turned to warmth and the craziness that is summer is upon us.
Last month, I traveled twice. Once to Jacksonville, Florida for a marketing conference. While there I got a chance to meet Rick Harrison (from History’s Pawn Stars show). I also found out a festival was taking place within walking distance of my downtown hotel, so I was able to catch two bands I wanted to see, Collective Soul and Three Doors Down. Yes, I am a 90’s/00’s pop/rock fan.
A few days after returning from that trip, it was off to Phoenix, Arizona for a sales conference along with our COO Johnathan. No concerts this time, just a small group of amazing entrepreneurs furthering their sales skills. There were about 30 of us. On day three of the conference, we actually got on the phone and as a group we booked 1.3 million dollars’ worth of business. Not too shabby for a few dozen people and 6 hours of work.
Phoenix was supposed to mark the end of my travel for a while, but another speaking gig just got booked for Las Vegas again in July. Until then, I am looking forward to some much needed family time. My brother will be in the QC for Memorial Day weekend and get to spend some time with us. I also, just bought a new bicycle so hope to get to spend some time on that (although I much prefer my motorcycle which also needs the cobwebs dusted off.)
Should be some great stories next month after the official start of Summer.
Until next month,
Agreed, wedding planning is not easy on the pocket, even the smallest wedding can turn out to be pocket-draining. One of the worst things you can do is to tighten the purse strings when it comes to hiring a DJ to entertain you and your guests at your wedding reception. Yes, you may be tempted to hire an individual DJ instead of hiring a reputable DJ company just because the individual DJ is charging you 100 to 500 dollar less than what a professional DJ company is charging. But what if that DJ gets sick, or decides last minute he just doesn’t want to DJ your wedding?
It is in your best interest to hire a reputable DJ company; this is because a full-time DJ company always put a plan B in place in case anything goes wrong. If your DJ is unable to show up due to unforeseen circumstances, then the company already has a backup DJ who is also well trained, highly experienced and totally committed to ensuring that you and your guests have a really great time. With a reputable DJ company, you can count on not only having a skilled backup DJ, you can also count on quality service because a DJ company can afford to purchase world class sound equipment that will make the music and announcements sound crystal clear as well as insurance in case there is an unanticipated accident.
Groom, Casey, and his groomsmen
We’re back into wedding season so it is getting harder and harder to pick the client of the month because they’re all so awesome! On April 2nd, we had our photo booth out at the iWireless Center for Courtney and Casey Wigant’s wedding. We had a blast! There was a line all night long for the photo booth which we brought props and a memory book for. Needless to say, their memory book was full and it will be a great reminder of how amazing their wedding reception was. We had a ton of big groups in the photo booth including the groom and his groomsmen.
Congratulations Courtney and Casey!

With April wrapping up and May just around the corner, it is definitely feeling like summer around here. It is also still the middle of my convention season if you will. As many of you know, I invest heavily in education and attend many expos. I also have a marketing consulting company and speak at many industry conventions.
In April, we packed back up and headed to Las Vegas for the second time in as many months. This time for Photo Booth Expo. I hosted a full day workshop one day and spoke 4 other times while I was there. Good thing I wasn’t sick and had a voice the entire time.
While in Vegas, I got a chance to visit my brother again and eat some good food (including some of the best pizza I have had at Pizza Rock). While, not really a gambler, I did manage to win some money at craps and Aaron Brown seemed to have an uncanny ability to win at bingo… yes bingo.
That’s it for Vegas but now on to Jacksonville, Florida and then Phoenix, Arizona. Then, I will finally get to stay home for a while and spend some time with my wife and two sons. Mason (now 16 months) seems to be becoming quite the rascal and seems to love throwing things for reaction. Logan (now 3), leads a busy life between daycare and preschool. It is really tough to leave them so much within such a short time frame.
May will be another crazy busy month, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Until next month,
