David Luke KurtzCO-CEO | Disc Jockey
I started my professional entertainment career at the age of 17 in the year 1982. DJ-ing at a roller skating rink in Newington, New Hampshire called “The Great Fox”. In the summer of 1983, I went to DJ at a restaurant called Jewappis in York Beach Me. for their underage night. Continued on to Curry College in Milton Ma. to work in the college radio station W.M.L.N. with my show called Dance madness, as well as Djing the college parties and dances for the first 3 years.
After graduating in 1987 I did some weddings and events but only as a sideline. In the late 80’s I began to start working on how weddings are put together to further my knowledge. Moved to Ohio in the early 90’s & started to work full time in the wedding and event field. I checked the Columbus market out & decided to form strong relationships with all the entertainment agencies. I was able to build a solid trustworthy relationship with a core group of wedding professionals. I have become over time a “go to” entertainer to help in a pinch as well as the person to rebuild partnerships.
During the 90’s I started to learn how to plan & develop weddings & events. I was even quoted in Columbus Monthly about weddings on a budget. I have planned & saved a few weddings over the years. With over 300 plus weddings that I have been a part of I feel my understanding of what it means to have the day be the special of days is most important. From the introduction, cake cut to the first dance they all play a roll on who the bride & groom are. Every event is a first-time impression; you only have this one shot to get it right.
Now in the 2000’s I continue to provide a quality service. I currently DJ 3 nights a week at a local bar and also am on call with 4 entertainment services in Columbus. I am the house DJ for Central Ohio’s Sci-Fi convention known as Marcon. I have worked with Doctor Demento & have opened for Grand Funk Railroad that was a private wedding. I’m easy to find and come see in action.
Columbus Monthly had interviewed me about weddings on a budget in the following issue.
