Steve DrewsSounds Abound DJ and Master of Ceremonies
Music has been a central part of my life since I was 3 years old, when my mom and I spun records on the turntable every morning. I officially started DJing and MCing events when I was 12, performing for my junior high classmates. In high school, a good friend and I started a DJ company in eastern Wisconsin, which was an absolute blast for a teenager! After graduating, I continued DJing while attending college in Ashland, WI, working for 96.7 WJJH-FM as their morning radio personality and mobile DJ for WJJH’s Music Machine.
I moved to Wichita, KS in October 1997 to pursue my other life passion – meteorology. I was lucky enough to join one of Kansas’ most respected DJ companies, Advanced DJ Service, within a few months of my arrival. I was also given the opportunity to combine my passions for music and weather on a daily basis, becoming known on the radio and at weddings, school dances and corporate events as Stormin’ Steve, 107.3 KKRD-FM’s weekday meteorologist. In February 2002, my meteorology passion brought me to Chicago, and I wanted to find a DJ service that shared the same DJ philosophy I do. Since March 2002, I’ve been very fortunate to be a part of Chicagoland’s most talented DJ service, Sounds Abound!
Even though I’ve been in the DJ industry for over three decades, one thing hasn’t changed: my love of music and making people happy. There’s nothing more satisfying to me than seeing people smiling, laughing, singing and dancing! It’s that sense of togetherness at a special occasion that makes each event special to me. My dedication to your event combined with my experience with audio and lighting equipment, event coordination, public speaking and flexibility will make for an unforgettable day!
I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to witness the true power of music – the dancing, the laughter and the lasting memories. It would truly be my honor to provide lasting memories of your special day!
