Bringing you peace of mind, while creating a memorable evening is what where all about.
Owner, Certified Wedding Disc Jockey/MC
Music has always been a passion and love of mine which was a big part of my desire to learn from a friend’s brother years ago, the in’s & outs of the DJ biz back in 97′. Marc was a very important part of showing us what we needed to know an after learning the basic’s of running a mobile entertainment company, my childhood friend Ronnie and I opened up Elite Beatz Entertainment in August 1998! We began doing birthday parties & smaller events which included our very first job located in the Blue Ridge Mountains which I’ll never forget!
In 2000, my DJ partner Ronnie decided to pursue his web developing company which took off for him (Firehouse Solutions) located in Leonardtown and I took over as the Sole Proprietor of Elite Beatz Entertainment. I want to take a minute to thank him for everything as we started this business together from the ground up, of which none of this would have been possible without him.
Operating as a solo DJ until late 1999, we began to add local talented DJ’s to our available roster which included Marcus Simmons, who has been with me for over 20 years now! After 3 years of providing music entertainment for events such as birthday parties and Anniversaries, it was in early 2001 that I had the opportunity to do my first wedding as a DJ. To say I was a little nervous would be an understatement! Despite the countless research, studying and online classes I had taken to be a certified “Master of Ceremony & Events Specialist” nothing prepares you for the real thing! It did help that it was a relative of mine’s wedding being held in a backyard but none the less the butterflies were rolling! Once that evening had wrapped up and was a success there was no doubt in my mind that this…… was what I was destined to do! In 2003, I meant Evan who is my sound tech, DJ assistant and right-hand man. He’s been with me ever since and keeps everything going smoothly at each and every performance that we have the pleasure of being part of.
Fast-forwarding to 2004, I began looking into adding Photography Services to our company’s endless pursuit of being “Your one-stop shop for all your entertainment needs”. By 2005, we had several very qualified photographers with BA Photography degrees working for us as we began combining packages which included Disc Jockey & Photography Services. We have our lead Photographer Amber who has been with us since 2006 and runs our photography division.
With our company’s reputation being built for nearly 9 years at the time, it was in 2007, we began offering Photobooth Rentals, Moon Bounces, Tents, Tables, Chairs, Linens & more! Many people (including other wedding vendors) have asked what made me think of combining all of these services we provide all together. My philosophy is pretty simple and still stands true for over 23 years now……
To provide our clientele with Elite services from start to finish, while providing them less stress with just one company to work with for the services we provide, while maintaining a quality of service in our line of business that is second to none.
We are proud to be Southern Maryland’s pioneering multi-service wedding company & the only Full-Service Entertainment Company on the East Coast that provides Disc Jockey, Photography, Photobooth & Party Rental Services combined.
