About


Hi! I’m Dennis! I am the founder of Live Events Missouri & owner/operator of Fun Pics Photo Booths. I am a professional, award winning DJ and MC (Master of Ceremonies) as well as ordained minister and wedding officiant. I’ve been a DJ since 1999 and have provided entertainment for thousands of events. Having grown up in the cashew chicken capital of the world, I ADORE cashew chicken. In addition to cashew chicken connoisseur, my hobbies include hanging out with my kids, broadcast radio, and frequent trips to Vegas, where I pretend to not have money (I don’t have money, don’t ask) and concerts.

A little more about me: Aside from weddings, I have been directly involved in live event production as a technician for many years from the likes of major label arena concerts to presidential visits. I knew at an early age that I was destined to be behind the microphone and began training my voice when I was 11. In 1995 I traded a bag of fireworks for my first stereo (AM, FM, dual tape and record player). I literally took apart every toy I could get my hands on and yanked the speakers (tweeters) out and Daisy chained the wires together so I could have “surround sound”. That is where my career in audio/production was born.

You can rest assured that when you hire Live Events Missouri, not only are you getting a well seasoned entertainer, you are getting someone who understands the industry and knows how to operate all aspects of your event!
