I chatted with Allen Walker for this article we did on his business in last week’s Wedding Issue of Cincy Chic. I decided to do a blog about him too because – as an event planner – his concept just makes so much sense if you plan ANY kid of event… wedding, corporate, personal, etc. They don’t just do DJing, which is all I thought they did when I first started talking with them for the story, but they also do the lights, emceeing, officiating, and even do those cool photo slideshows of pics people are taking live at your event. How great that you can just go through one person for all of that?! I’m going to repost the story I wrote about him below, but I wanted to personally give them a shout out to save anyone who’s planning a wedding/event some time and frustration by not having to work with a million people and get them all on the same page (been there, done that). Here’s his website if you want to learn more.
Allen Walker knows that planning a wedding can be stressful. That’s why his company Big Daddy Walker Productions serves as a one-stop-shop for everything entertainment during your big day.
From DJ, karaoke, MC, officiant, sound, lights, and entertainment, Big Daddy Walker Productionsoffers it all. Established in 2002 with a long history of entertainment services, Walker says they also stay on the cutting edge by maintain the latest in music selections and frequently update equipment and services.
In fact, they just added a new service called “Foto Bomb” to their entertainment line-up. The service allows attendees of your wedding or event to submit their photos via smart phone – no application needed – to a short code and it will be submitted to a slideshow that will play throughout the event, and be added to a zip drive given to the event host at the end of the night.“Big Daddy Walker Productions truly cares about entertainment and making your next event a success,” Walker says. “We believe that music and entertainment has the ability to connect people and further relationships.”
Connecting and building relationships also earned Big Daddy Walker Productions several awards. In fact, they’ve been named Best of Weddings by The Knot for five straight years and inducted into the Hall of Fame. “We are the only DJ service in Cincinnati to ever earn that distinction,” he says. “We aim to bring to you and your guest the absolute best in wedding Emcee and DJ services. We ensure that every detail is covered to give you the night of your life.”
Walker says that because they’re privately owned and managed, he keeps a careful eye on quality, and that’s his secret to success. “We have one chance to get it right, and that’s how we train our DJs to perform,” he explains. “DJs have to shadow me for a year before they’re released and certified to do the weddings. We have 17 DJs total right now who can do a variety of events, but only five are committed to and certified to do weddings. That’s how we keep our quality in tact.”
