Weddings are TBuf's favorite!
Couple my love for music and my love for my wife and you will “get” why weddings are so special to me and why I specialize in helping others with their most special day.
Picture a beautiful blonde on the dance floor at Randol’s Restaurant and Dancehall. I spotted her as the music moved me towards her. We shared a dance. Being my normal confident self, I felt I was most charming as we swayed and chatted during that one lone dance.
And then she was gone like Cinderella had left the ball.
Now picture months ahead….. Some may call it happenstance or luck, but I call it “God’s Divine Purpose” the beautiful blonde and I should meet again on the dancefloor while both pursuing expertise in ballroom dancing class. This time I made certain to leave a lasting impression. She thought I was funny as I joked and made light of our “not so light” steps. I knew I wanted to see her again and I knew I would not allow her to run off this time, so I had to make my move. I invited her to a party in my home I was hosting. In my eyes, she waltzed in and held such grace and beauty… I remember it well. I was undoubtedly smitten.
And then she dropped the bomb. She announced in front of a crowded room of people, “I would never date a Catholic man!”
Wonderful… The “friend zone” begins.
And so it remained for over 5 years… “Friends.” Long talks, phone chats, spending time together, growing together as friends. Neither of us realized our romantic attachment until she went on a trip for what seemed like years. We both realized just how much we missed each other and decided to give “more than friendship” a chance. Turned out, we were a great fit in the sense that we equal each other out. The Yin and the Yang. I’d lived my life with my head in my dreams and aspirations, surrounded by the artistry of music and words, while she was more grounded and settled, more down to earth. That’s why she is a nurse, I suppose. But with one another we found “balance.” There was no question in my mind we belonged together!
A year later, despite how nervous I was, I asked for her to be my bride. With our faith in God and our solid belief marriage is a forever commitment, she made my life when she said that one magical word… “YES!”
Our relationship has always felt easy and relaxed and now that we have been husband and wife for almost two years, I feel like I fall in love over and over. Many may say it is because our marriage is new, but I would say it is more because we were friends long before we ever decided to cross the line t romance. Some people may think they married their best friend… but I KNOW I married mine.

What is the Clean Music Movement?
The Clean Music Movement simply means play family-friendly music. That doesn't just mean we play the edited versions of the song, it means we don't play inappropriate songs at all. Check out our permanent Do Not Play List, Grey Area List, and Typically Played list.
Is this your full-time job?
The short answer is yes. We take your special event seriously. Our management team and your selected DJ will spend over 15 - 25 hours of preparation for your event to ensure everything goes according to plan.
How do you come up with the song list for an event?
We are a part of the clean music movement so we don't play songs with cursing or explicit lyrics. Other than that, you are in control of the music. You will have access to your personalized online planner page on our website so you can create a list of songs the must be played and even songs you don’t want to be heard. We can either create a playlist based on the songs you chose or only play the songs you want.
How do you get the crowd pumped?
We are experienced in many methods of inviting everyone to the dance floor including playing time-tested hit songs and even starting the dancing ourselves. We are skilled at reading the crowd and keeping the energy high by use of a wide range of approved genres. To see our DJ's music demos and performance videos click here.
How do you handle song requests?
Should you allow guests to request songs, we can provide you with a link to pass along to them. Your guests can pick songs before your event and you can approve them. During your event, we have a DJ assistant who can field requests for the DJ to play them at the appropriate time.
Can I hear some examples of mixing and blending different tracks?
We hate the awkward silences even more than you do. We enjoy blending songs together seamlessly in order to keep the energy high. Check out our music demos and videos on our DJs profile pages.
What sound equipment do you utilize? Do you have backup equipment?
We use the best in audio equipment so you hear every word nice, crisp, and at the perfect volume. We test every piece of equipment before every performance, set up early and conduct a sound test, and bring backup equipment just in case.
Have you played at our chosen wedding venue before? If not, can you make a site visit beforehand?
We have performed at most venues in Acadiana, Baton Rouge, New Orleans & the surrounding areas but if we have not performed at your venue we set up a site visit at least a few weeks before your event. We also develop a professional relationship with the owners/managers of the venues to be sure we comply with any rules or regulations they may have. Lastly, we go over the layout of the venue with you during our last meeting to ensure audio perfection.
Do we have our choice of DJ and/or Musicians to select from, or is one automatically assigned to us depending on date availability? What happens in the case of an emergency?
We have multiple DJs that you can choose for your event. We can also contract out some of the other best performers in the state that perform who uphold our high standard. We are in the process of hiring more DJs and wedding bands now so we will soon have even more options for you. This event is about you and we will do whatever it takes to make it unforgettable.
