Face To Face Musical Entertainment is your one-stop shop for your special occasion music. We provide a live jazz singer for your dinner music or cocktail hour and a DJ for your dancing pleasure. Lori Johnson and DJ Gary D have several decades of experience between them, and are sure to please one and all!
On August 4th my husband and I got married at the Heritage Hall. We hired Face to Face Musical Entertainment and could not have been happier. Our entrance and exit songs were timed perfectly and our first dance was just right as well. We were spoiled when we found out Lori sings jazz and was more than happy to sing for an hour while we took our wedding photos! Our guests are still talking about it! They kept the music current with a side of old which was just right for all our guests. They were professional and polite and I truly loved working with them.

Additional Booking Notes
We provide the PA (500 watts), lighting and DJ gear required to entertain a room or hall of about 100-150 people. If you have a bigger venue or event, we can accommodate at an added charge, depending on the requirements of the event. We do require a six-foot long table for the duration of the event.
