About Our Vision

It’s a simple goal—make a difference, one experience at a time.
— Broc Barton, Founder/Lead DJ

it’s about creating extraordinary experiences.

I seriously love what I do. I am truly blessed beyond belief to be part of so many couples' special day.

When this journey began 15+ years ago, I never could have imagined I would end up where I am now. I’ve gained countless relationships with clients who have become dear friends, indispensable partnerships with talented wedding pros in our industry, and a close-knit team of passionate event hosts I have the honor of working alongside. We get to take special moments and make them extraordinary!

It’s about redefining the idea of a dj.

When I started Elevate Entertainment, I wanted to produce the very best in event entertainment, and I knew that meant redefining the concept of a DJ. Over the years, I’ve learned being a DJ is so much more than simply pressing play on a song list. It takes so much more dedication and finesse to engage people powerfully in being fully alive in a single moment. That’s how the best memories are made.

At Elevate, we don't actually view ourselves as DJs. We view ourselves as Experience Architects (that is, people who help create incredible experiences). Too many DJs treat their job as just that... a job. It's not. It's an opportunity to engage, to make meaningful memories with people through excitement, laughter, and dancing. It requires the uniquely engaging personality of an entertainer, mixed with the technical know-how of a musical engineer, a distinct ability to read audiences, fused with just the right amount of professionalism to keep everything appropriate without being stiff or boring. If you're really good, you cap it with a touch of humor that can bring the whole room to laughter. No iPod will manage all of that.

It’s about being able to make a difference in people’s lives.

I believe in the power and the value of these experiences in our lives. I believe these are the moments we’ll treasure and love to look back on. And I consider myself lucky because I get to help create these kinds of memories for you and those we meet.

If you're looking for someone to just push play on some songs at your reception, then our team is honestly probably not the right fit for your event… and that's okay. But if you're the type who thinks like I do and wants your wedding day to be one of the most incredible memories of your life - as well as all of your family and friends - then please, get in touch with me. Let's have coffee together and talk about how we can make your day perfect!
