I love to hear how fellow vendor friends found themselves in the event industry, and how all of our diverse backgrounds lend a hand in making what we do for our clients unique and different. The Define Journal’s interview with Michael Antonia – the brains behind The Flashdance moniker, head DJ, and all around notorious dance-party-maker – is a refreshing look at how someone’s love of music, and long journey into the wedding world has ended with:
“it makes me feel pretty awesome to say that I own three companies, work with my best friends, and make people TRULY happy every weekend.”
We’ve got him on the books for a wedding this coming Spring, and I am so excited that Texas folks will finally have the chance to hear The Flashdance live. Even my husband was stunned to hear him warm-up at The Cream Austin and at Britney and Chris’ San Antonio wedding — he gives you goosebumps, and that doesn’t happen often.
“To find new ideas that work, you need to try a lot that don’t. It’s a pure numbers game.” – Robert Sutton via The Define Journal, Michael Antonia interview.
Some good life advice.
