I ended my wedding season on Friday, October 22, 2021 at Diamond Oaks Events in Clear Lake, Iowa!  This year has been an amazing journey for me with the beginning of a brand new business.  I always dreamed of going into business for myself, so when covid hit in 2019 I started my planning process and built BM Live DJ Service from the ground up!  Alot of planning, research, and alot of money spent to build my dreams.  Not only do I want to provide excellent service that other DJ's bring, I want to add something new that most DJ's don't offer...a photo booth!  The photo booth has brought alot of excitement for all my couples and everyone had a blast!  BM Live has many plans for 2022 to bring more products and choices for all my couples!

This year I had the pleasure to host at many wonderful venues across Iowa and Illinois.  All my couples have been outstanding to work with and has been an honor to be their DJ.  I would like to give a big shout out and say CONGRADULATIONS one last time to all my couples!  I am so looking forward to 2022 for a brand new adventure and amazing couples.  My calendar has already started to fill up for 2022!

Here at BM Live, I work with all my couples during their planning process by providing them with online planning tools, monthly virtual meetings, building customer relations, to offer them excellent service that a DJ can offer to make their day the best day of their lives!

Mark Holt, owner of Nostalgia Dirt Series holds its first racing event in Algona, IA.  His vision is to bring back racing history by placing vintage race cars back on the track.  His first event is in Algona, IA June 26th & 27th 2021.  Mark's vision does not stop here in Northern Iowa, but plans on bringing the event across the country.  

Saturday's events consisted of a performance swap meet, open track, car show, and music by BM Live playing 50's 60's & 70's music.  Sunday's event consisted of the big race!

Saturday started off on a rocky start with rain showers lasting throughout the day.  The open track was post-poned to Sunday morning before the race, while all out door events were moved inside.  As the weather cleared up, BM Live was still able to set up and play out doors.  During the evening event, the beer garden was open for all guests to enjoy a cold beverage, and a photo booth set up by BM Live.

People gathered around the beer garden or sat outside their campers enjoying great music, and getting their pictures taken (see Gallery for photos).  Despite the bad weather, everyone still had a great time enjoying their evening.

Due to the amount of rain on Saturay, the track remained to wet for the cars to race.  Sundays events were post-poned to a later date.   To learn more about the Nostalgia Dirt Series and upcoming events, you can visit them on FACEBOOK or their WEBSITE.
