Well, tomorrow is my official retirement from my old government job with the Navy. I'm ready for new things. Most exciting though is running my own disc jockey company while getting ready to start another business as a consultant with Investors Group here in Duncan. Busy, busy, busy!
Christmas is only a few weeks away. Our house looks like Santa's playground.

Wedding season is coming faster than you think. I still have a few dates left. Book soon or you'll miss out on Vancouver Island's best!

A professional disc jockey is one who has a written contract, meets with the client to answer questions in person, and gives the client a sense of comfort knowing that their event will be in good hands. Once the big day arrives, the DJ will be set-up and ready to go at least an hour before the show (in case something is wrong and needs to swap equipment), and is dressed appropriately for the type of party.

Big Eye wears a tuxedo for wedding receptions....a jacket and tie for any other occasions. I believe it shows respect for the clients and their guests who have usually taken the trouble to look sharp for the occasion.

Look for future tips on how to make sure your event is done right!

Leafs Lost ..... Again! Book your DJ for Summer 2009

Leafs are starting to stink consistently. Should have seen this coming I guess. Hard work only gets you so far. If you can't score on the PP in the NHL, it's a lost cause.

Oh well, Big Eye Entertainment is gearing up for a nice christmas season. It'll be good to see a bunch of old friends at the military events while meeting new ones here in Duncan. Remember to book me early for your wedding, birthday party or any occasion for Summer 2009. Dates are filling up fast! I noticed last year that I was getting inquiries a few weeks before weddings. Don't put it off because it might be you, your guests and an IPOD plugged into a home stereo. Bummer! A professional, experienced DJ can make or break your day. Your guests may not remember the food but they will remember if their feet are sore the next day from dancing all night. Remember to check out the website

Give me a call if you've got any questions or use the contact form.

Sunday 17 Nov 08

Leafs lost again last night. I'm used to it having been a fan forever. Someday, before I die or am too old to see, they will win the coveted Stanley Cup. In the meantime, I don't have to spend sunny days in June watching my team!

Off to Nanaimo tomorrow to do some Investors Group admin stuff. Working on my DJ website with Sharon Jackson (webmaster). I'll let you know how it turns out.

My first blog.....13 Nov 08

Hi everyone. I'm updating my site and thought a play-by-play might be interesting. I've been DJ'ing for about 17 years off and on as I couldn't decide what I really wanted to do when I grew up. Now I I re-purchased some brand spanking new sound and lighting equipment last spring, and voila! Here I am...ready to rock your world and make your party the talk of the town. Hiring a licensed DJ for any event makes sense when it comes to value for money. It allows you to forget about the entertainment while you and your guests can focus on having a great time, toe tapping and twistin' the night away.

It was a very busy summer performing for weddings from Victoria to Gold River to Youbou. I even managed to get nine holes in before the show in Gold River. A great time with some great people. I enjoy the variety that comes with meeting and performing for different crowds in different places. Hotels are great but nothing beats a backyard reception for memory making. I am in the process of semi-retiring from the Navy and am looking forward to meeting lots of great people while doing something I love.

PS: I'm also a Toronto Maple Leaf fan but don't hold that against me. At least it shows that I'm consistent!
