Hello, my name is Patrick O’Connor.
I am A+ Event Entertainment's longest employed DJ/MC. I started working with Thomas in 2009, as a wedding musician and also started training to DJ the A+ Way. I started my Entertainment Journey in high school djing school dances and proms. One of my fondest memories was when a teacher exclaimed at the end of one of the dances that I should get a job on the radio!
Music has always been a passion for me. I'm an upright bass player, percussionist, and guitarist. I love bringing my music background as a performer to our events. I also know the industry from many angles. I have worked at wedding venues doing setup work and I have also worked for a catering company. I use that knowledge to help make your wedding day run smoothly.
My goal is to take care of my couples so they have no worries and can enjoy one of the best days of their life. When I'm not working weddings, I'm supporting my amazing wife of 7 years and our three kids 13, 11. I also teach stringed instruments to children with the Dorothy Gerber Strings Program.
What do I listen to? I listen to most anything that makes me smile and move my feet. I love jazz, I'm really enjoying John Williams. And as far as pop, 80’s into the 90’s. My guilty pleasure… i have a couple. The Beastie Boys, Flock of Seagulls, and Billy Idol.
Favorite party starters? My ideal crowd loves to dance! I love to start off with some oldies like “twist and shout” then move into more current music as the night goes on. A few of my favorites floor fillers are Michael Jackson, B-52s, Hall and Oates, Jamiroquai, Usher and Nelly.
