Tell us a little bit about you and your company. How did you get into weddings? I moved to Pittsburgh from London, England way back in 2007 and have worked as a professional singer / guitarist and DJ / MC pretty much since I arrived! I specialize in weddings and private events though you’ll also find me performing in bars, clubs, restaurants and casinos across Western PA. These days, I’m also prone to the occasional online live performance! I founded ‘Joel Lindsey Entertainment’, a multi-service event company over a decade ago. We participate in around 150 events and performances each year and work tirelessly to maintain our impeccable 5-star standard. I am looking forward to providing live music ceremony services for this amazing 9/11/2021 event at the Pennsylvanian. We appreciate everyone who is lending their time and talents to this special wedding event. A handful of lucky Pittsburgh couples are going to have their dream wedding day and we are just really glad to be involved.
What is your favorite part of working with a couple? A couple will hire me to perform live for their ceremony, cocktail hour… and often even their first dance! They can choose a song from my repertoire or I’ll learn their favorite romantic song. It’s a really special time in the reception when the lights are low and the guests look on as the couple share their first dance as a married couple, while I sing and play guitar to their special selected song. An unforgettable moment for every couple.
I always love performing the ceremony recessional song – this is typically a fun, upbeat tune. As the couple recess down the aisle and leave the ceremony location, the guests are standing and cheering. The couple are so happy, holding hands and waving to everybody. With all of the stress that can go into planning a wedding, you can tell at this moment that they have this great sense of relief and are finally ready to let loose and party.
What makes your company unique? I’m a singer / guitarist and a DJ / MC… with a British accent to boot! My amazing wife, Amy is a wedding officiant and we also offer live music ensemble options, uplighting packages and event videography. We strive to make the client’s life easier by providing multiple affordable wedding services all through Joel Lindsey Entertainment. Every couple is different so we make sure to customize each wedding to fit their needs. We want every couple to know that their satisfaction is really important to us; we are keen to listen to their ideas and make sure it is a reflection of their personalities throughout. We proudly have a perfect track record of over 170 five star online reviews for which we have worked extremely hard over the last decade. Bottom line – Our clients’ happiness is our happiness.
We are very proud to be a part of this 9/11 event at the Pennsylvanian. We are grateful to have been invited to participate and are happy to provide our services. The 2020 Pandemic has been a very difficult time for everybody and the winning couples will finally have something wonderful to celebrate.
