Alton, the owner, is the only DJ residing in Northeast Wisconsin to serve on a board of directors for a major educational conference for DJs. This is huge. Not only is SoundFire DJ respected among the wedding community in Northeast Wisconsin, but also on a regional and national level by other DJs for being selected for this honor. Not only was he a board member, but he was also appointed to be the official house DJ for this conference for 3 years in a row! You know you have an awesome DJ when they’re asked to DJ for other DJs.
Alton has entertained audiences in 2 continents, several different countries, and all across the United States. At an early age he began with classical training in piano & flute. Throughout his teens he was recognized as one of the top musicians in the country, in his age group, by being inducted into several national honors ensembles, and in two of these ensembles he held a principal chair position.
He later went on to study music in college under scholarship, and during that time began his service to our country with the 132nd Army National Guard band here in Madison, WI. After a few years he decided to serve our nation full-time as an active duty Army Bandsman. He was stationed in both Norfolk, VA, and Ft. Rucker, AL where he served with the 98th Army “Silverwings” Band for 3 more years. During that time Alton began his interest in DJing as an art form, and even became the unofficial, designated unit DJ for public events where the band was asked to provide pre-recorded music. While serving in the military Alton excelled in his musical accomplishments participating in a vast majority of the ensembles in the unit, performing over 700 events per year, and was recognized by several “top brass” leaders for excellence in musicianship.
