Cleveland's Fall Wedding Recap

Once again fall is upon us here in the Cleveland wedding scene and our DJ staff has been extremely busy making our couples events pop. It's been a busy fun summer but September and October are the most popular times to have wedding reception in Cleveland. Some of the most notable weddings Troy Entertainment DJ's performed at this summer were at our most frequent venues like Cleveland Courthouse & Cleveland City Hall Rotunda. However, we also had great weddings this fall at places that we haven't been to in a long time. Place like Springvale Golf Course & Ballroom for Katie & Tom' Wedding Reception, The 100th Bomb Group for Haley & Steve Wedding Reception, and The Silver Grille at the Ritz Carlton with Jen & Greg Ceremony and Wedding Reception. Here are some of the videos our DJ staff shot impromptu from our smart phones during the wedding receptions. We never claim to be good photographers or filmmakers so excuse the quality. But grab some popcorn and enjoy!

Cleveland Wedding DJ Mixes Formality With Fun

Being asked to DJ some elaborate elaborate Cleveland weddings has been the norm for the last several years. but every once in awhile we come across a couple that wants their wedding reception to be both formal and fun. Such is the case with Maria and Justin at The Cleveland Akron Hilton in Fairlawn. We were excited to work with Wedding Coordinator and friend Eileen Benson, Photographer Carrie Nelson and the wonderful staff at The Hilton Akron Fairlawn

A well planned wedding reception starts with decor. The right lighting and decor, floral, and even furniture can transform the well laid out room into a masterpiece. You'll want to complement your well appointed and decorated ballroom with excellent catering and service.

However, after they ooh and awwh over the centerpieces and enjoy a great meal, it's all about the fun you can create. Everyone's idea of fun is different, but a talented and experienced disc jockey can get the maximum out of your guests, keep the event flowing, and the dance floor packed.

Take a look and the pictures of this beautiful wedding and the fun video of this party. This was the perfect mix of formality and fun for this couple and their guests, Don't take our word for it, we'll provide you with contact information for them and any of our recent clients.

We want to thank Maria and Justin for making us part of their big day. We hope to see them on a dance floor somewhere again soon!

Sarah & Greg's Reception at the Cleveland Hyatt Arcade on July 30th, 2016 with Cleveland DJ Troy Entertainment

We met Sarah, Greg, and Sarah's mom Toni at another wedding we provided DJ entertainment and event production for at the Cleveland Courthouse.  They wanted to work with someone who has experience with challenging acoustics and that can make the party happen.  After several conversations and months of planning we delivered a formal yet fun reception  These two families know how to party it up. Working with The Hyatt Arcade Hotel staff and Photographer Lindsey Beckwith  was a pleasure beyond words.

Weddings In Cleveland feature article still holds true today!

From time to time we all do house cleaning on our computers and delete files or folders we don't need or value more than the space they take up on our hard drive. While browsing thru My Documents folder I have to say it was a lot of fun looking back at the events we have done, pictures we took, and the press we received over the years. As I scrolled thru the files by name I found this gem below...an featured article that was published in Weddings In Cleveland Magazine in 2007. Funny thing is that this still holds true today. Over 9 years later this remains our path to success, niche, and mindset:


CLEVELAND DJ Entertainment & Event Production -- TROY ENTERTAINMENT
With a passion for entertaining the only thing the staff at Troy Entertainment loves more is the people they have performed for. If you have met Pete Troy, founder of Troy Entertainment, you’ll better understand why his company is on the recommended list of the majority of halls, hotels and party centers. “Personality, Organization…and someone who will make their event fun are the things today’s brides and grooms are telling us they want most” said Pete Troy as he attempts to keep his hand on the pulse of what people truly want. “Our clients appreciate the peace of mind we provide throughout the entire experience. Specifically, the attention they receive working directly with the owner of the company. I personally assist every client in the planning process, and we are the on-site event directors to the affair. They really value that relationship”.

“There is nothing more rewarding than to be asked to provide the entertainment for the friends, relatives and family members of our past clients. Creating return referrals and building long lasting relationship is something we have always been grateful to achieve. During this past year alone we have been asked to entertain at several weddings that were planned for family members of the management of local halls, hotels and country clubs. These are the people that see entertainment each week throughout the year. We are truly honored to have been selected for these extraordinary events”.

Mr. Troy and his staff have a history of credits and accolades within Cleveland’s media too. They have been featured in the Plain Dealer, Scene Magazine, and Sun Newspapers as well as interviewed on local television news and nationally released video wedding planning guides.

Keys to success: “Everyone wants to have fun. However, fun means different things to different people. We create a fun fit for each event. By utilizing a custom timeline, event preferences and personalized music programming, we are able to achieve a pleasurable balance of entertainment and hospitality.

Keys to selecting entertainment: “One would assume most DJ’s will have music and good equipment. With today’s technological advances that is the somewhat the easy part. However, the most important trait of a good DJ is not measured in megabytes, watts or ohms. It’s having the ability to think on your feet. Knowing what to play, when to play it and who you’re playing to!” says Pete. “So that being said what really separates DJ’s from one another is talent and experience…and the only way to judge talent and experience is by ones track record. It all comes down to their proven ability to create a fun and festive atmosphere. This is what we offer to all of those who are looking for quality entertainment. Our enthusiasm is contagious. I still find myself at these great events thinking ‘I can’t believe this is my career’ I’m truly fortunate”.

If you are not familiar with Troy Entertainment they would like to invite you to experience the difference in a non-committal informal setting. First, visit their website at www.troyentertainment.com . Feel free to browse the pages of their site, and while your there fill out the “contact us” form. You’ll be responded to quickly and cheerfully. Then take a few minutes out of your busy schedule to meet them in person and explore the possibilities. Its sound advice…you’ll be glad you did.

Cleveland Wedding DJs Rock The House of Blues

Being a high energy Cleveland wedding DJ we receive requests to create fun and exciting theme weddings. This time our couple had a vision of a Rock Concert Theme. From the venue they chose The House Of Blues Cleveland to the nusic for the grand entrance "Helion and Electric Eye - Judas Priest" to the last song of the evening "For Those About To Rock - AC/DC" this wedding rocked! The tables names were represented by rock album covers of the 70's which I thought to be really creative. Our bride Janeen's son's band called The Outer Waves performed songs of The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin to name a few. We enjoyed the opportunity to help make this vision come to life threw music and preparation with the venue, photographer, and our guests of honor. There was plenty of dancing and a high energy feel in the room as we ended the show with everyone crowded in front of the stage for the send off of the bride and groom. Pictures of the event can be seen below and on our Facebook page. The following week we did a Halloween themed wedding and right after that party we received a call to perform at a Harry Potter themed wedding, we'll let you know all the fun things we whip up for that one next summer. So themed wedding are in and creativity can make for a welcome change from the traditional themes for you and your guests.
