As I sit here and think about how blessed I am to be able to play music for people. I can’t believe I have done this crazy thing for almost 25 years. What is crazy to me in 2016 is how fast music changes. A song can be hot for a short time, and then it’s just mysteriously over! I-tunes, Amazon, Pandora, Spotify, You Tube, Playlists, Radio, and whatever you can think of give people more options than ever before to consume music. 2015 was the year of Adele, Ed Sheeran, Pitbull, The Whip & Nae Nae, Uptown Funk, Shut Up & Dance, Hotline Bling, Sugar, Cheerleader, and I Can’t Feel My Face at weddings, and on the dance floor for almost any function. What will the big hits of 2016 be?
2015 was a surprising year for me as I returned to the radio airwaves for a daily radio show on B92.7 in Terre Haute. You can listen any day online at www.b927fm.com from 3pm-8pm each afternoon. I also do an early Sunday morning shift from 6am-10am. It’s been really fun. I talk about Local Things, Hollywood, Reality Shows, Music, Movies, Entertainment, Sports, Music Stores, and more. You can download our app at B92.7 and take my show anywhere around the world. It’s been one of the more fulfilling years of my life being back on the airwaves for the right reasons after taking a couple of year hiatus after being on 99.5 WZPL in Indianapolis.
I also started writing for the Wabash Valley Business Monthly publication. It’s always been a passion of mine. You can check that out on Facebook under Wabash Valley Business Monthly, and on Twitter under @WabashValleyBM. It’s been one of my passions for a long time. I used to love to blog, and now I thought I would turn this into giving back to the community by writing local community pieces. You can pick up each month’s copy at Baesler’s or any Terre Haute Savings Bank location. The publication is also mailed out to several businesses in the Wabash Valley.

We’re excited about our 6th year of participation in the Wabash Valley Bridal Society. You can check for other wedding vendors at www.wabashvalleybridalsociety.com. If you ever have any questions about vendors that we have worked with, we would be glad to recommend you some good ones. Speaking of the Wabash Valley Bridal Society, I am really blessed for the networking opportunities amongst vendors. I have some fabulous conversations at dinner meetings with fellow DJ’s, wedding planners, photographers, caterers, florists, and hall managers. I have learned so much from this group. I am not able to always do all the bridal shows, but I am very much a member of the group. I believe in being professional and doing this business the right way. I believe there are 60 some odd members in the society, along with 25 or so associate members. These people really try to do business right. If you book somebody from the WVBS you’ll be getting a pro. Heck, if I’m booked there are two other DJ’s in the society, which I would recommend! Any time that there is a bridal show for the Wabash Valley Bridal Society, you can save money with my DJ company, Showtime Music, if you win one of the gift certificates that they give away. There are two annual shows in January and September of each year.
Thanks again to all the vendors, coordinators, photographer’s, photo booth people, videographers, florists, officiants, reception halls, colleagues, caterers, bartenders and anybody else I left out. Here’s to many more great years! Rock and roll has and always will be a part of my soul. I can’t wait to see and meet each and every one of you new fans in 2016. Remember, we do DJ Birthday parties, Christmas Parties, Company Parties, Class Reunions, Anniversaries, Company Picnics, MC events and charity functions, and we at times we rent PA systems, perform music at your actual wedding ceremony, and have recently added uplights. A special thanks goes to Guardian Computers Systems and Troy Clark for helping me maintain this website. If you need computer work done call Troy at 232-5800. He’ll take care of you!
