Whether you’ve attended a friend's wedding or had a wedding of your own, you know that the music vibe can absolutely make or break a wedding experience. No matter the genre of music, it’s important to know how to create a magical experience for not only the Bride and Groom but for the guests as well.
This week, I am talking with Dane Leveton, Professional DJ, MC and Owner of Levitate Weddings. Levitate Weddings provides an all inclusive, premier wedding planning experience, located in Danvers, MA. Dane has been a top DJ and MC for over 20 years and was actually the DJ at my own wedding.
In this episode, Dane shares the artistry behind perfecting the “Start and Stop” transition to keep the music and vibe going, how to keep the crowd moving, and the power of easy listening, intimate music before the dance floor opens up. Even when Dane isn’t DJing or MCing events, he is still pursuing his other passions and recognizes the power of pursuing your most ambitious goals.
