MY NAME IS TONY SCHWARTZ
And I rock receptions.
My DJ career started at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington. I earned my stripes DJing in fraternity basements, at house parties, and in local college bars. It was fun, but eventually, I graduated college and ascended to the Seattle nightlife scene, where I quickly realized I hated DJing nightclubs.
But I loved DJing. And performing.
So, while working in finance during the week, I booked private events for the weekend. Of all the events I performed at, only weddings really allowed me a license to mix creatively. Mastering “The Art of the Wedding DJ” became my obsession. I learned everything I could about entertainment planning and design, directing, hosting, and programming the soundtrack of one’s wedding.
I had found my niche, my passion, and the one thing that I looked forward to every weekend. And, I wanted to be really, really good at it.
In early 2009, I was told by the firm I worked for that they were making cuts – and I was one on the list. So, I decided to take a risk and see if I could do what many said couldn’t be done at the time: make it as a full-time, professional event DJ.
It was the best decision I ever made.
Fast forward to today: I have DJ’d at weddings up and down the West Coast, as well as shared the same stage with some pretty big names in the music industry. I’ve performed for crowds of up to 25,000 people, and I founded two more companies in the private events space: PLAY Event Rentals and The Puget Sound Photo Booth Co. My current aspirations are to DJ weddings and private events around the country and the world, as well as become the official tour DJ for one of my favorite country music artists.
Seriously, I can’t believe that I get to call this a career. I’m truly blessed, completely grateful, honestly humbled, and totally thankful for all of the opportunities that DJing has brought me, as well as the experiences I’ve lived and the people I’ve met.
I’m thankful to even be considered as your wedding’s Master of Ceremonies & DJ. If you like my mixes, enjoy watching my videos, and want to create magic at the biggest party you will ever throw, I would love to speak with you.
P.S. If you are looking to book me for a private event, concert, festival, corporate gala, or other marquee VIP events, please visit www.DJTonySchwartz.com.
I BELIEVE IN
a simple philosophy
The best feedback I’ll ever receive from a bride is a hug at the end of the night – because that hug means we knocked it out of the park.
YOU WILL BE HARD PRESSED TO FIND ANOTHER DJ WHO IS AS
AND CARES AS MUCH AS TONY SCHWARTZ.
