Jimmy and his team have on more than one occasion donated their DJ services for our annual fundraising dinners. They have also been hired for more than 15 weddings at Tarrywile Mansion just in the past three years. The DJ’s that I’ve had the pleasure of seeing in action have all been professional, engaging, and more than able to get the party started.

Jimmy has done a number of weddings here as well as vendor tastings and fundraisers. He is always willing to take requests and he knows that whenever I’m in the room he better have some Michael Buble music in the line up.

I have been to quite a few events that featured Sean “Big Daddy” as the entertainment and can quite honestly say he is one the most caring, lovable and talented man I have ever met. His easy going personality combined with his knowledge of the entertainment field will put you at ease the moment you meet him. A fact that I didn’t realize until recently is that Sean has a beautiful voice and will often sing with the music playing for back up. If I hadn’t looked over and realized the beautiful voice was coming from Sean, I would have never know. If you want to see him really smile, ask him about his grand kids!

Here are some of my clients who have chosen Sean “Big Daddy” as the entertainment for their event.
