Phil and Sarah Walsh were married in 2000. As the MC at his wedding, Mike Walter noticed Phil as an outgoing guy who loved to dance. During a brief conversation, Phil told Mike that he’s a physical education teacher for the Toms River School District. Mike’s wheels began to spin. He told Phil, “You’ve got the raw talent to be a great DJ, let me know if you’re interested.” Well, it wasn’t long after he returned from his honeymoon that Phil found himself mowing lawns on the weekends for a little extra cash. Mike’s words echoed in his head though and soon enough he picked up the phone and called Elite. His first question to Mike was, “Were you serious?”
Since that day, Phil has become a popular MC and DJ on our staff. He has a smooth yet energetic voice and his dance moves are the envy of everyone in the company this side of Corey Fox. Phil is also a great singer and he’s often asked to sing a ballad or two at his events, especially one of the country songs or Michael Buble covers that he specializes in. And while he aspires to be one of the best wedding DJs in the area, his “day job” still finds him instructing hundreds of elementary school children and keeps him well in touch with the musical tastes of that generation.
Befitting a gym teacher, Phil is one of the more active and athletic members of our staff. He has even begun helping Mike’s golf game. Returning the favor of Mike teaching him everything there is to know about the DJ business, Phil is determined to help Mike break 100. No one here is holding their breath!
We are all proud of Phil’s elevation through the ranks of Elite and while his weekends aren’t spent mowing other people’s grass anymore, Phil’s home in Toms River definitely has the greenest lawn on the block.
Wanna get to know Phil even more? Check out his video introduction:
V-Logs are quick event recaps done in a montage format so you won’t hear much real audio but you’ll get a fast paced and fun overview of each party.
Our Live Audio videos are longer than our V-Logs and they feature actual audio from the event. You’ll hear some or all of the bridal party introductions and then a variety of footage from the event. Keep in mind that any song you hear may have been selected by that specific client and the music we play at your party will be approved by you.
