We’ve been entertaining people since 2008, founded by Ohio-native Byron Gunter while overseas in the Middle East! He was supposed to be teaching elementary school, but party music happened instead. You can listen to him talk about how cool he thinks he is on his bio page!
As a company, Buckeye Entertainment has done thousands of weddings–chances are you’ve seen us somewhere! On average we’re at 450 or so weddings a year in the Columbus area; in fact, the vast majority of the weddings we do are direct referrals from past couples, other vendors and venues!
So far we’re ten pro DJs, two carry-all-my-stuff DJs, two lead photographers, and a full time officiant, planner & coordinator, along with a handful of photo booth attendants and second shooters. People seem to think we’re the best of the best in Central Ohio; and we not so humbly agree!
This is the gold star right here. Not to say the other stuff we do isn’t great, but this is where we started. This is what we’re known for. When it comes to our DJs, they really get run through the ringer. All of us started out as a gear monkey hauling crap around for big, important Byron. Gear monkey to message gopher to maybe I’ll play your suggestion if it’s a good one and finally, thirty-ish gigs later, we get to be real wedding DJs. But only if he thinks we can hack it. Um, great? That’s…cool…you say? It means that all of our DJs have seen pretty much everything before they get to go out on their own. It means we trust them to rock your event, from beginning to end. It means we’re more than just a single guy doing weddings on the weekends for beer money–most of our staff DJ weddings as a full-time job.
You don’t get a do-over at weddings. If your stupid kid brother kicks you when you’re trying to putt on the windmill hole, you don’t get a mulligan. Play the ball from where it’s at, son. So we take backup seriously. And our stupid kid brother not putt-putting. We can do nine weddings at once, but we’ll always have at least two DJs on call in case of emergency. Actual, decent ones, not some punks we found spinning at a dive bar. Most of us are even licensed officiants, so yeah, you’re getting married.
Unlike a lot of other operations out there, we don’t hire a random 18 year old to fill a date we booked or that not-creepy-at-all guy who’s been “DJing” at the frat house a few too many years after graduation. We’re not going to hit you with the bait and switch. You’ll meet with your DJ at the consultation before you sign a contract and that’s who’s going to be showing up at your wedding. Unless they’re hit by a bus, or something. That’s what the on-call guys are for. With us, you get who you hired. Period. We’re serious about the quality of service we offer. Don’t believe us? Check out any of our reviews, they speak for themselves!
