EVENTS/DJ

WEDDINGS/SPECIAL EVENTS


I regularly perform at special/private events and can offer both guitar and/or DJ services. I've done well over 500 weddings and corporate events, so I'm very experienced with the process.
I prioritize your musical preferences, allowing you full control over the event's atmosphere or entrusting its curation to me.

For weddings, the video below provides a glimpse into how I perform live guitar through the ceremony and cocktail hour, and then transition into DJing for the dancing/party portion of the evening. I also offer MC services, provide wireless mics, dance floor lights, and am available for as many consulting and planning calls as you require.

REVIEWS

Dominique T. - Having Trevor as the musician/dj was the best decision I made for my sister’s wedding. Trevor provided so much knowledge and guidance before the day of the wedding to help us pin down the proper timeline and song choices. He set up a Spotify playlist we could revise if we had additional songs we wanted played during the reception. Trevor was always available even for last minute conversations. He’s just easy to work with! On the day of the wedding, Trevor was early and set up his equipment before guests arrived. But there’s nothing like hearing him play the guitar. Guests raved over how beautiful his playing was and more than 1 had video’d it so I was able to see for myself even when running around making sure last minute things were handled. His effortless switch to deejay and back to guitarist was a sight to behold, and he’s not bad looking either! You cannot go wrong with adding Trevor and his talents to your event! Just ask him for his YouTube link. :) -

Stephanie P. - Trevor DJ'ed at my wedding and it was the best decision I made! His skills are NEXT LEVEL, and he kept everyone entertained the entire time. Once the dancing started, he kept everyone on the dance floor. Hire this man!!!

Jon And Cristy S.
- I can’t say enough good things about Trevor. He is an amazing musician/DJ. Customized the playlist to our style. Best part is that he was great with the kids. He had them playing percussion instruments and entertained throughout the night. I highly recommend Trevor.

Amanda H.- Trevor did a phenomenal job setting the mood for a wonderful evening! We were very pleased with his professionalism, great communication and really listened to our “vision” for the ceremony and reception. He had a some ideas to add as well. We also used Essen Entertainment for our photo booth. We are very pleased with our experience with Essen and Trevor!"

Dasha K. - Trevor is the best! Don’t hesitate, just hire him now before he is booked up. He will exceed your expectations. He super cool, fun, entertaining, and a professional DJ/MC.

Doug G. - Trevor was terrific to work with. He was responsive and professional throughout, and put on a great performance, following the ideas and plan we agreed to. I even got a few remarks from guests taking about his skills. 10/10 would book again. Great all around!

Maria B. - Trevor was amazing! He made our wedding very special and made all my family dance. Not only his music but his energy made everyone happy. He was punctual and even prepared a song with my cousin so she could sing a special song for us.

Dana D. Trevor not only is an amazing guitar player, but transitions right into an awesome DJ! My group loved Trevor and his song selections for our lively group event. The group begged him to stay and were left wanting more. So much fun and kept the party going! Will definitely hire Trevor again when we are back in the area!

Heather E. - I hired Trevor for a work conference. He was great to work with - super flexible, very professional. I heard only great feedback from our attendees about what a great addition he was to our event.

Andrew B. - If you've got any sort of event in which you need either live music or a DJ, Reach out to Essen Entertainment and book Trevor immediately. He was responsive, very easy to work with, and he set up early for the wedding to make sure everything was perfect. You can definitely tell that he loves what he does. I honestly wasn't sure if my small wedding of ~50 people even needed a DJ, but he made both the ceremony and reception special in ways that I'm not sure anyone else could have. I threw a bunch of songs his way for the wedding ceremony with maybe a little over a month to spare, and he learned ALL of them. As I walked down the aisle, I couldn't help but feel just how perfect the moment was. Cocktail hour and reception were fantastic, with him switching between guitar and DJing. Everyone, including our bartender and coordinator, was really impressed. He just made the night flow in a way that felt so correct. Even as our numbers started to dwindle toward the end of the night (average adult age was 30+, so our knees can only handle so much dancing), he was still down for keeping the energy up as long as there were some of us still on the floor. He listens well and can take requests on the fly. He made our parents feel special by playing their favorite songs. I really can't say enough good things. If you're in the greater Austin area -- hell, if you're anywhere in/around Texas -- book this guy. You get so much talent/entertainment from just one person.

Ryan F. - I’m so glad that I hired Trevor!!! It was the best decision I made! I hired Trevor to DJ and my wedding and he did it all at an expert level. He is an AMAZING DJ! He kept everybody dancing for the entire night. He was flexible and collaborated with us with the playlist which was nice. He was also a great MC, very personable, and very easy to work with. Trevor can do it all! You will not regret hiring him!

Colin H. - Can't recommend this company enough. We initially wanted to go with a different option but one conversation with JJ flipped our perspectives. The DJ is such a crucial part of the wedding from ceremony to the finish and I did not realize that one bit going into my own wedding. JJ happily talked on the phone with me for over an hour when I was just meeting with DJ vendors. He was personable and very informative. We had Trevor as Our DJ and he was fantastic. We got tons of compliments on the entire night's music (not just the dancing) from so many of our guests. He also handled MC duties with finesse. It's easy to look back at your wedding and think about what items you think you overspent or underspent on and your regrets about it. We spent more than we initially thought we might for a DJ but wouldn't trade it for the world. Worth every penny and definitely played a huge part in making our night as special as it was

Tyerra S. - I wish I could choose more than three things I loved about working with Trevor. He was absolutely amazing. He communicated the entire time, gave suggestions and helped work our timeline. He was very accommodating and was able to quickly adjust to our delayed schedule. My entire family loved his smooth skills and gave so many compliments on both the DJ and MC quality. He also played while my family was cleaning up. He is absolutely amazing and if I ever have another event, I will be reaching out to Essen Entertainment and to him. THANK YOU JJ and TREVOR!

Angel P. - We hired Essen Entertainment and DJ Trevor for our wedding and he was amazing!! Every single guest came by to tell us that they enjoyed the music so much and it was a favorite part of their day. He lived up to our expectations and then some. He is so skilled and is such a friendly person. I would not hesitate to hire him again if I’m in Texas for another event. I’d give him 10 stars if this rating allowed me to. You won’t be sorry if you hire him.

Dan W. - HIRE THIS GUY Y’ALL!!! I'm not only a mom, I'm a details person. I wanted the perfect touch to make my baby girls wedding extra special...and Trevor made that happen!Of course he showed up early and prepared but more than that, he was very accommodating. He learned a special song my daughter and her fiance picked out and played as her isle walk song...IT WAS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! He also played for cocktail hour and everybody loved him! He kept their minds off the dog-day heat and not once did he complain.He looked and played the part for our occasion and has earned a spot in our families future functions. A thousand thanks to you Sir for your talent!

Justin H. - Trevor, without a doubt, understood the assignment and fulfilled what we asked for. He went above and beyond with music for the ceremony (mixed perfectly), cocktail hour (with acoustic guitar), and keeping the party going with the reception. I highly recommend him and would definitely hire him again.

Jennifer H. - Trevor was fantastic! Not only was the DJ work wonderful, he also played the guitar beautifully as my daughter walked down the aisle. Highly recommend him!

Kelsey W.
- Our company has had the pleasure of having Essen Entertainment and Trevor perform/DJ at our casual awards ceremony twice. He is professional, very easy to work with in the planning process, and a true talent. Our on-site team noted how his excellent performance kept the energy in the space high for the duration of the program (for a group of attendees that had spent their entire day in challenging workshops…no small feat!). If you’re considering Trevor, go ahead and book him! You won’t be disappointed. Highly recommend.
