ABOUT ABE

  

LEAD ENTERTAINER – OWNER

 

  • ABE ALLEY HAS BEEN A DJ ENTERTAINER SINCE 2004. HE HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN HUNDREDS OF WEDDINGS, AND A COUNTLESS NUMBER OF CELEBRATIONS. 
  • PROFESSIONALISM AND PERSONALITY IS THE #1 THING ABE BRINGS TO THE TABLE AT EVERY SINGLE EVENT.

 – HISTORY AND BACKGROUND –

 ABE STARTED PLAYING MUSIC FOR HIS FRIENDS IN HIS BASEMENT AT HIS HOME IN DOWNEAST, MAINE. BIG GATHERINGS   WITH ALOT OF PEOPLE  ENJOYING THE MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT. THIS IS WHAT STARTED HIS LOVE FOR THE MUSIC   ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS, AND HAS DELIVERED GREAT EXPERIENCES EVER SINCE THAT TIME IN THE EARLY 2000’S. ABE   HAD MADE A SQUARE 6′ X 6′ BOX MADE OUT OF PLYWOOD, AND USED THAT AS HIS DJ FACADE. ALSO, USING A 24 DISC   CHANGER, AND A RADIOSHACK MIXER WITH A BUILT IN MICROPHONE TO PLAY THE CDS HE HAD. ANOTHER GREAT PIECE   OF STORY, IS THAT A PIONEER 3 WAY SPEAKER WAS CUT IN HALF TO MOUNT ONTO THE CIELING OF THE BASEMENT TO   SAVE SPACE. THIS MAY HAVE BEEN GHETTO, BUT IT GOT THE JOB DONE! MULTIPLE TIMES 🙂
 

 THE START – IN 2004, AJ’S BAR AND GRILL IN MACHIAS NEEDED A DJ FOR THEIR BAR.  SO THE OWNER ASKED ABE IF HE WOULD LIKE TO PLAY MUSIC FOR DANCE NIGHTS, USING THE IN-HOUSE EQUIPMENT.  ABE AGREED TO DO THE JOB AND THIS WOULD BE THE START OF BRANCHING OUT INTO THE PUBLIC WITH HIS ENTERTAINMENT SKILLS.  WORKING TWO NIGHTS A WEEK, AND GETTING PAID $50 PER NIGHT, THIS WAS A GREAT WAY TO GET STARTED. 

THE FIRST WEDDING – (2004) AFTER WORKING FOR THE BAR AND GRILLE FOR A COUPLE MONTHS, ABE WAS ASKED TO DO HIS FIRST WEDDING RECEPTION. THE FIRST WEDDING RECEPTION WAS VERY SMALL, MAYBE 50 PEOPLE IN ATTENDANCE.  THE EQUIPMENT ABE USED WAS 1990’S HOUSE STEREO STUFF………. SUCH AS PIONEER 3-WAY TOWER SPEAKERS, A 24 CD CHANGER, AND A RADIOSHACK MIXER WITH A MICROPHONE. NEEDLESS TO SAY, TIMES HAVE CHANGED ESPECIALLY IN THE AUDIO EQUIPMENT WORLD. 

ON ANOTHER NOTE, FOR THIS WEDDING RECEPTION ABE MADE $50 FOR THE NIGHT. 🙂 THE REST IS HISTORY… AND AFTER 300 WEDDINGS LATER, HERE WE ARE!

TAKE A LOOK AT THE EQUIPMENT BELOW. THESE WERE THE SPEAKERS AND MIXER ABE USED AT HIS FIRST WEDDING! YIKES 😉 

GOTTA START SOMEWHERE I GUESS LOL   😉
