Owner/Founder - Lead DJ
Playing weddings and events in high school taught him how to read a crowd. Doing theater in college taught him how to be a master emcee and how a live event needs to be run.
LaDel is a Richmond kid and keeps his finger on the pulse of all things music in the city he loves. His creativity and his passion for music is obvious with whatever type of event he is doing
DJ, Director of Operations
Mike's passion for music and his skill on the mic started back when he was 18 when he DJ'd his first wedding using CD's and tapes. Born in Baltimore, he calls Richmond home now
From Norfolk, Rob's love of live events dates back to his college years. Starting with just two discmans and a mixer, Rob started throwing parties at ODU and never looked back.
Tyler started working with live events at his church, setting up and breaking down equipment. Now he can read a crowd, keep them entertained and work the mic like a boss.
Technician / DJ
Growing up in Virginia Beach, his guitar was with him at all times. Once he joined our team as a technician, he quickly learned that playing music for a lot of people was a lot of fun and his knowledge of music made it easy too!
Suffolk native, Ryan joined the company in 2021 as the warehouse attendant. He has since been steadily moving up the company ladder and is now a senior level technician.
Alan started his career as an accidental club DJ when the original DJ was a no-show. He fell in love with making people happy. Coming from Southampton, he continues to love that feeling at events today!
While Shane may be new to Music Makes You Happy, he is far from a rookie DJ. With over 15 years of industry experience, Shane has toured with celebrity acts and has done well over 600 special events!
DJ / Technician
Growing up in Norfolk, DJing has always been a passion. From back in the day running a dual tape deck working on custom fades to the professional equipment he rocks today, the results are the same. The joy it brings is worth the work.
