DJ and Photo Booth Personnel

Ed Markwardt

Owner

I began as a DJ in 2009 by working for a DJ company. I left them in 2011 and started All Access DJ  in 2012 after watching so many DJ companies not take care of the bride on their wedding day.

I want to be different. I offer a personal touch to every bride and treat each bride like royalty. After all, this is a once in a lifetime event and the bride deserves to be treated like royalty.
I do like to have fun during the receptions. I am very interactive with the guests in order to keep them engaged and enjoying the whole reception. I offer interactive games to assist with that.
I will not contract a wedding without sitting down with the bride and groom face to face. To me it is that important and it is important to have that personal connection. We go through a timeline and music so that your big day will be worry free. My job is to keep the event flowing so you can spend the entire evening enjoying your guests.
I do not treat you as a number as so many DJ companies do. For most, the dollar is the bottom line. For All Access DJ, YOU are the bottom line.
I will also meet with you as many times necessary so you feel very comfortable with how the event will go. Remember...it is all about YOU!

Kurt Hendershot

Operations Manager

“Without music, life would be a mistake.” (Friedrich Nietzsche) This is a quote that I have passionately agreed with for as long as I can remember. From my time growing up in the 90’s with my walk-man by my side to managing my own CD store for about 5 years to DJ-ing many clubs, parties, and weddings; music has always been a huge part of my life. I realized young my desire to play music but when I realized I would never be the next Hendrix on the guitar, or Billy Joel on the piano, I dove headfirst into listening and learning about music.

I started DJ-ing doing teen night clubs, parties, and high school proms at the age of 18 in NJ and after a move to NC, I started working with DJ Professionals and Video and did my first wedding and have rarely looked back since, even after my move to TX, logging in over a 100 weddings during my DJ career. I love DJ-ing weddings and getting the opportunity to work with the Bride and Groom and help make their day memorable. I do everything I can to “make the customer happy” and I truly mean that unlike many of the big box companies out there. I always vow to my clients that I will listen, learn about what YOU want, what YOU need, what will make YOU happy, and then offer ideas of how I can make that happen. Simply put, my goal as an Event Specialist is to truly make everything about YOU! I want you and your guests to leave the party or wedding happier than you arrived. I want you to be able to say that the music helped elevate your event to the next level and honestly be able to say, I could not be any happier than I am right now!

Dave Hoover

Event Specialist

I love music, I love to entertain, and I would love to help write the musical memories for all the special occasions in your life.

There are so many events that can be improved with the right music: birthday parties; sweet sixteens; graduation parties; Halloween and Christmas get-togethers; company functions and corporate events; retirement parties; and, above all else, weddings.


These are times we share with family and friends — times that are special to us; times that will live forever in our memories — so why not add music to them? Do you remember “that song” from your high school prom? What song was your “First Dance” at your wedding? When you hear these songs played years later, what memories come rushing back? Six months after her sweet sixteen, are your daughter’s friends still talking about the party you invested so much time, effort, and finances into? The right music, the right atmosphere, and the right DJ/MC can help set the soundtrack to your life.

Cory Bararack

Event Specialist
Cory is a North Texas native that grew up in the Texoma area and graduated from the small town of Tom Bean. However, don’t let the small-town upbringing fool you about Cory’s music taste. Ever since his childhood, Cory has enjoyed many genres of music, and it reflects when he DJs.  After practicing the art of DJing for years at his home, Cory received his first “live” DJ gig in 2009, and has worked as a club/mobile DJ ever since.  Cory has DJed  in many bars and clubs in Dallas, has done many weddings, school events, and private parties. Djing is Cory's true passion and he shows it when he's playing his music for all to hear. 


Chris Esparza

Bilingual Event Specialist
Chris Esparza comes from a lineage of event professionals. His grandfather was a professional DJ using cassettes and vinyl to mix, who later turned to professional photography in the late 60's. His father is also a DJ and has experience mixing in popular tourist destinations like Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, as well as Santa Barbara. Chris is fully bilingual and specializes in multi-genre mixing. He can mix oldies with top 40 to ensure everyone at the party gets to dancing. He has performed at concerts, radio stations, festivals and even nightclubs. His true passion lies within the challenge of personalized weddings and private events. The skill of a true DJ and MC is shown when you are in charge of someones' most important date.  He shares the same philosophy as Ed, "it is all about you." He makes sure you and your guests have an amazing night, without you ever having to worry about any technical or professional issues. You can expect years of experience and a high attention to detail for your event from Chris.

Renee Godwin

Lead Photo Booth Operator

One of my favorite quotes is; "Life is an adventure. It's not the destination we reach that's most rewarding, It's the journey along the way. So write it down and treasure the memory forever - Live, Love, Laugh....."


For as long as I can remiember, I have always loved helping people with their weddings. I love to see everyone smiling, having fun, and making those life long memories that are looked back on and that again brings a smile to your face. It is truly the greatest feeling knowing that you have contributed to the most special day of a Bride and Grooms next adventure in their life.


I am a proud mom of four kids and very family oriented, being committed to spending time making memories is a priority for me. I am an Ordained Minister and a Devoted Christian but I also love volunteering. Some of those positions include; a Church Deacon, a Volunteer Youth Sponsor, going on yearly week long Mission trips, and a Boy Scouts of America Adult Leader/Chair Member/Assistant Scout Master.


Being a part of All Access DJ has been exciting, fun, and memorable. I look forwarded to being apart of your Special Day Memories where it's all about you!
