"Music has consistently been the most influential, driving, and prolific force in my life. I have passionately loved music for as long as I can remember, and my musical training began at age 11. By high school, I was proficient enough on at least 3 instruments to perform in front of people who willingly paid to watch me do so. I ventured into the "dark arts" of DJ-ing in 1997; and while I've mixed at clubs and festivals, my true passion as a DJ lies in private events, which I've been servicing since 2013. I make it my personal mission to pack dance floors and to provide a seamless, entertaining narrative for each event. I strive, endlessly, to make each event soundtrack unique and tailored to fit my client's exact specifications."

Michael Mauro and Caitlin Pacheco are just a couple of irregular folks working diligently to carve out a niche in the event entertainment industry. As partners in business and in life, their chemistry has been judged as both inspiring and a little bit ridiculous. They are music fanatics, outdoor enthusiasts, foodies,  and the best of friends.  Caitlin has two children and a graphic design business, and Michael has her heart. When you support our business, you support a local family whose passions lie in building a livelihood and strengthening our community. We hope to hear from you soon!
