My Professional DJ & Wedding Experience
I began my professional career as a DJ in 1995 for KBSS radio in Booneville Arkansas. I also performed at Highschool and Middle School Dances for the surrounding areas. Shortly thereafter I broadened my scope to include weddings and private parties.
I soon found that I absolutely loved doing weddings because they allowed for me to use my full potential creatively. My heart was really into creating weddings that were unique and truly remarkable... weddings that would leave a lasting impression.
Although I didn't mind doing other types of events I felt that brides and grooms would benefit the most from my particular skillsets, so on Feb 22nd, 2006 I renamed TBW Entertainment to Arkansas Pro Dj's and Riley Receptions.
My ongoing training includes:
Music Programming and DJ Mixing
Theatre, Drama & Speech
Stand-up Comedy & Dancing
Sound Reinforcement & Video Production
Organization and Planning
Graphic Design and Video Editing
Leadership Skills and Much More!
I am also the founder of the Arkansas Mobile Dj Association and a member in good standing of the American Dj Association.

Key Roles for your wedding
DJ (Disc Jockey)
I love working with a crowd while mixing music and videos and I've spent years learning how to use the energy contained within the music to create a unique wedding environment while building excitement within a crowd that will always lead to the dance floor.
I am extremely particular about the sound and presentation and will typically show up to an event many hours in advance in order to ensure that everything will meet my stringent expectations.
Although my personality tends to be a bit old fashioned, when it comes to weddings you'll find that I am a technology geek who creatively uses the latest gear to its full potential.
VJ (Video Jockey)
My particular specialty is using video to enhance your wedding environment by engaging guests with custom video backgrounds, photo video montages, on screen video trivia, and more.
We live in a three-dimensional world where most of your wedding guests have "watched" as well as "listened". Video will bring a third dimension to your wedding and engage your guests visually as well as audibly.
Master of Ceremonies
My primary focus is to help you where you need it the most, which is ensuring a stress-free, smooth running, fun filled reception by guiding and directing all events and activities while representing you tastefully (NO cheesy here) to your guests.
You'll have your own online wedding planning account where we'll gather 100% of your wedding details, in which I will use to create your entertainment plan and wedding day timeline.
As a wedding professional I have spent that latter part of my career focusing on the latest wedding trends. For modern weddings "typical" is often no longer acceptable for many of you, which gave rise to a new type of wedding specialist... the Entertainment Director.
Typically, less than 30% of your wedding will center on dancing. As your Entertainment Director my focus is on making the other 70% equally enjoyable by personalizing your individual events and activities.
