Eric Electric Named Alberta’s #1 Best New Wedding DJ
I am incredibly moved by today’s news. I have been named Alberta’s Best New Wedding DJ for 2013 by the Wedding Industry Experts Awards.
I would like to particularly thank my friend and fellow entertainer, Tristan Court (TriXtan) for nominating me. To be honest – I originally refused to enter the contest. Because I didn’t feel ready to bear the title of “Best at Anything”. Compared to many of my peers with 10-20 years experience, I still have so much more to work on. But after some reflection on how much I have grown in the past 12 months, I felt comfortable entering as “2013 Best New Wedding DJ” for Calgary.
A year ago, I spent 2 months away from home in Manitoba, and had my ego bruised and my eyes opened. I was introduced to a small group of wedding DJs who were so superior to anything I had known was possible. Their attitude was completely different.
In my mind, I mark April 2012 as the true start to my DJ career. And now exactly a year later I’m very honored to be named Calgary AND Alberta’s Best New Wedding DJ. And the biggest surprise of all was being named the 2nd Best New Wedding DJ in CANADA! It looks like I have my work cut out for me this year!
So thank you for your support. It means a great deal to me. Below is a screenshot of the official results shown to me today.
