Hello &

If you are newly engaged, planning a birthday, anniversary or special occasion party or dance, you'll want to add some music to your day and that's where I come in. Since 1979, I have been performing at weddings & functions along South Shore Boston, Massachusetts, Cape Cod and throughout New England.

As a highly experienced broadcast DJ/MC, I work with you to create a truly memorable event.

From Miller to Madonna or Armstrong to GaGa, I play a wide variety of the Latest & Greatest Hits plus I have a top of the line digital sound system that sounds great no matter what level the music is played at.

  • Karen’s Theme
Anorexia nervosa and bulimia are better known eating disorders today largely due to the unfortunate and untimely passing of Karen Carpenter, who succumbed to the former on this date in 1983 at the age of 32.  The subsequent formation of the Karen A. Carpenter Memorial Foundation (now called the Carpenter Family Foundation) has since raised money and awareness for treatment of this once misunderstood affliction.  

Karen, sister to Richard, who together formed the ‘70s group The Carpenters, had an unmistakable voice and a largely unknown passion and talent for drumming.  In a 13-year period, they left a legacy of 30 chart hits that include most of the above listed.  Karen’s Theme is a beautiful piano tribute from Richard’s 1997 self-titled album that includes many other instrumental versions of Carpenters hits. 

We’ve Only Just Begun continues to be a timeless wedding theme for either the ceremony or first dance.

Soundtrack For Today: Carpenters on shuffle
