Tommy Evans, a lifelong resident of Fort Worth, Texas began combining his talent and vast music collection creating“mix tapes” – cassette tapes with the latest music mixed together in a club style.
In college, Tommy spent several years working as a Fraternity / Sorority photographer and continued to grow his music library from all musical styles. In 1989, as a member of the Delta Sigma Pi business fraternity, he had an opportunity to DJ a formal event and Specialty Sound was born! Immediately, he began to receive calls from other Greek associations, and business grew.
Tommy continued to build his business throughout college and a 12 year career as a software engineer. In 2001, a layoff presented the opportunity to focus on Specialty Sound full time.
Today, you will find Tommy’s name on the preferred vendor lists at many Dallas / Fort Worth area venues, and recommended by the finest planners, photographers, and other event professionals. Tommy’s specialties are wedding receptions and corporate events.
Tommy is also very active within the events industry in the D/FW Metroplex. He was a founding member of the Dallas / Fort Worth Chapter of the American DJ Association, as well as a charter member of the Professional Wedding Guild of Fort Worth. He has served on the board of both organizations, including two years as President of each. Tommy has also served as President of June Wedding, Inc., Dallas Chapter, for three years (2008 – 2010), and on the Executive Board of the National Association of Catering Executives (NACE) as Event Professional. He has also won numerous awards in the wedding industry, including Entertainer of the Year for 2010, presented by the NACE Dallas Chapter, and 2010 Member of the Year presented by the JWI Dallas Chapter.
Tommy resides in North Richland Hills with his beautiful wife (a talented photographer) and two children. He is very active in family and church life. Tommy is proud to be the owner and DJ of Specialty Sound.
“Every event that I work on is very special to my clients, and therefore very important to me. Entertainment is one of the (if not the) most important decisions that is made regarding an event, and I do everything possible to exceed the expectations of my clients. I am truly honored to be a part of each event, and look forward to making every event fun, unique and memorable.”
