You can always tell truly professional companies by how much they continue to learn and grow.  This is why I am constantly traveling to conferences and workshops like the one I just returned from in Tennessee call A.R.M.D.J.s.  I left with 2 other Dallas area DJs; Shawn Kelly of Platinum Sound ( and Gary Lankford of Lankford Weddings (  We began our travels on Sunday June 20th, I had an event on the 19th on Lake Texhoma so I ended up just coming home and packing up to leave without sleep…I figured I would sleep in the truck on the trip…I was wrong! We talked non stop until we got to Mephis, where we of course stopped for BBQ!  Later that night we made it into the mountains where Shawn’s dad has been building a lake house, which I might add was amazing. 

The following morning Shawn drove into Knoxville to pick up Peter Merry ( from the airport.  What Peter didn’t know was that last night we developed a plan to scare the crap out him…see the video below…lol. That afternoon we roll into Greeneville and settle in beofre heading to the rooftop party.

the next day can be described only as one of the most incredible one day conferences I’ve ever seen!!  The line up of speakers was incredible, the topics were exactly what we needed, and the content was intense!  Thank you to Robbie Britton for all his hard work in getting this incredible event together.  I can’t wait till next year!!
