Hi, I'm John Marsi -- Founder and Lead Emcee/Djay for Elite Lighting & Sound!
I truly appreciate your interest in our services and have the highest of hopes that we may serve you!
I grew up in a musical family in the heart of New York City's Grenwich Villiage and began playing instruments and singing at an early age. I embraced my parents love of music and found it only natural I absorb all I could while growing up in such a creative environment. Once I was high school age, I elected to attend the Missouri, Military, Academy in hopes of becoming eligible for the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs CO. While at MMA, I performed regularly with our award winning Drum and Bugle Corps and found myself leaning toward a career in the performance arts. I then went on the the University Of North Texas to study Percussion and Jazz Performance. Over the years, I've been lucky enough to tour extensively playing engagements in places like LA, New York, Las Vegas, all over Central Europe. My list of live performances, either as an Emcee/Djay, Drummer or Vocalist are in the thousands! Elite Lighting & Sound is built on this experience featuring the best in theatrical performance executed with military like organization.
Our team now consists of several tried and true DJ/Emcees & musical performers who all share my love of theatrical performance, organization and a job well done.
Let's hope we have an opportunity to meet soon and discuss your event plans as we are sincerely, at your service!

& The Elite Team
Why Choose Elite?
WE LEAVE NOTHING TO CHANCE, are well rehearsed and prepared for anything. We always bring back-up gear. You never know when the outdoor ceremony will be rained out leaving everything inopperable and drenched at the last minute.
The following is a true story showing one of the many reasons why you should make the Elite Choice.
The weatherman was wrong, we've had everything covered in plastic and have waited it out but... the rain is coming down in buckets. Finally, after about 20 minutes past our planned ceremony time the bride says "No way am I going out there in that torential downpour to be married in this expensive dress!" Guess what? It's time for plan B! The wedding coordinator comes to the Elite Team hysterical and says "In ten minutes time the ceremony is going to happen in the main lobby.. what are we gonna do??" "Not to worry" we say.. our light tech (extra person) is already on her way out to the van now with a bellman to load up and bring in a pre-staged, perfectly organized back-up system that will save the day! It's happened before, it'll happen again. With Elite... You're Covered!
