Mike, Jay & Bob know what the wedding industry needs.
The wedding industry is not by any means foreign territory to Mike Hernandez. His father, Mike Hernandez Sr. was owner of a wedding band and small DJ company that dates back to 1981. As a young child Mike Jr was always listening in on Tuesday night rehearsals at the house and being brought to the occasional wedding when the baby sitter wasn’t available. “I remember my dad taking me to weddings to help setup when I was just 7 years old. He would give me a black sharpie to color in the chip marks on his wooden JBL speaker cabinets.”
Today, Mike Jr. is the proud owner of Sounds To Go DJs. Based in Central New Jersey, Sounds To Go DJs is a well known name in the area. “We do hundreds of a events a year mostly being weddings. I’ve been around weddings my entire life, I’ve seen so many changes in the industry with each generation of brides. I’m finally at a point in my career where I can be part of the bridal evolution.”
In 2010, Mike and long time friend Bob Scott got together to share DJ war stories. “Bob started talking one day about his hour long commutes to do sales and client reviews at the DJ company he was previously working for. Bob always had this idea of implementing conferencing software but the technology just wasn’t there at the time.”
Mike and Bob knew there was a missing link in the industry and decided to put their heads together. Not only did they develop wedding conferencing software but implement a slew of multi-media super tools.
“For me, helping brides and improving vendor businesses is what I was born to do. I can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on BrideLive.”
