Island Wedding Entertainment
Jonathan O'Neill has been providing first rate wedding entertainment for over 15 years. His career began as a professional musician/vocalist and over the years he has proven himself to be an exceptional disc jockey and emcee. As a musician, Jon possesses an intimate understanding of all musical styles including; classical, jazz, pop and everything in between. Whether playing acoustic guitar before an audience or selecting just the right song for a special dance, this kind of experience is invaluable.
Jon works with his clients to determine just the mood they're trying to set. He understands that some couples want an energetic and lively Master of Ceremonies while others prefer something more subdued. Of course, every couple has special songs that they simply must hear on their wedding day as well as a select number of songs they would prefer not to. Together with Jon, you'll work through these types of details so that when your wedding day arrives, you're able to enjoy the day with confidence that everthing will run smoothly.
Jon's business, "Island Wedding Entertainment", began on Block Island and over the years has provided music for over one hundred high-profile island weddings. As sole proprietor, Jon supplies a level of service that can't be obtained when working with a larger entertainment outfit that relies on a rotating roster of surrogate DJ's. When you hire Jon, he's the one who shows up to DJ your wedding. Once there, he provides music that perfectly complements the environment surrounding the occasion.
"Sometimes the greatest compliment I recieve is that the guests never even knew I was there until the introduction of the wedding party. When I look around the room during the cocktail hour and see someone tapping their foot to the music while engaged in conversation, I know I've done my job. Good background music should be almost sublimial. When selecting dance music, it's my goal to have everyone out there enjoying themselves; from the youngest cousin to the eldest aunt and uncle."
