It's been five years.

Five Years of awesome music, awesome couples, & awesome receptions.

Take a Tour, By the Numbers

ProVolve Entertainment started five years ago over a beer between two friends.

Today, it's a three-time Knot-award-winning company focused on providing a local, authentic experience for couples who want a personal, reliable, and fun DJ company to work with on their big day.

Let's take a tour of the last five years:
by the numbers.



Mike and Eric at their first gig together, circa 2009.

New Team Members: 2

Times we've played the Chicken Dance: 2

It's not something we typically play, but on occasion, couples have requested it. Usually for the kids. If we're being honest, the sound of it makes our skin crawl.

Power Failures During A Reception: 2

Yup, it's happened. Twice. One due to act-of-God-level weather conditions, the other was due to a telephone pole getting hit a few hundred yards up the road. We made do. You know how we roll.


The Knot's Best of Weddings awards: 3



Thank you.

Thank you.

... And thank you.

New PVE Dads: 3


Paul

Eliza

Olina

The past five years marked big changes in little packages for the PVE family.

2009-2010

Seems like so long ago. At the time I was like, "Look how easy CSS makes everything!"

2010-2012

Flash Site. 'Nuff said.

2012-Present

It's served us quite well. We love how easy it is for us to post updates, recaps, and more!
There's another redesign around the corner. Maybe we'll go back to Flash? Haha.

Times Mike got choked up during someone's speech:4

Yeah, he tends to get emotional. Especially when he's had too much soy.

Times we've decided not to give the mic to someone:4

Some guests just can't handle wedding receptions. Don't drink and speech.

We get around for being a DJ company based out of Central Pennsylvania.

It's the coolest feeling to find out that a couple we helped has had a kid.

Then, and Now...

Our mission has always been to provide couples with world-class service, while preserving an authentic, local, and experienced company handling the soundtrack on their big day. After five years, we:

  • Don't have dozens of DJ's at our disposal.

  • We hang out / keep-in-touch with tons of our couples.

  • Still love what we do on the weekends.

There are a lot of DJ Companies in the Central Pennsylvania area, but we don't want to be like any of them. All we want to do is provide the best, most customized soundtrack imaginable for a local couple's big day. The rest is just noise, to us. If you've seen us at a wedding, you've seen us in our element - helping people have a good time.

At the end of the day, we're just 4 buddies that love our little weekend gig, and what it's become over the past five years. If you've been one of our couples, we want to say 'thank you', from the bottoms of our hearts. Being there for you was an honor, and all it takes is a picture or a memory of your big day and hundreds of little details all come rushing back.

Here's to the next five years, the next 150 weddings, the next 8,000 miles. We'll see you around.

Warmest Regards,





To our past couples:

If you had fun, and want to help our company continue to serve other awesome couples like yourself, the nicest thing you can do to say 'thanks' is to write a review of us on the two biggest bridal sites there are. We don't pay for advertising, because our couples tend to recommend us to other couples... But reviews really do help us out.
