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”.
