DJ MARK ARIA
After a weekend at TomorrowWorld 2013, it was love at first sight.. with music that is! Marcus (DJ Mark Aria) dove right into DJing after his first music festival and never looked back. What started as just playing music at parties and clubs with his friends, he perfected his craft and was searching for more. Marcus and Maddy started dating and thanks to Maddy's part-time job as a professional bridesmaid, weddings were always on the weekend schedules. After attending a few weddings as Maddy's date, Marcus decided to give the role as "Wedding DJ" a try. After DJing a few weddings for friends and friends of friends, it quickly clicked. Creating Mark Aria Entertainment and growing a team of DJ's has been the best and most unique experience Marcus could ever ask for. When he's not behind the decks, you can find Marcus cheering on the Cowboys, going to Disney with Maddy, and mentoring new and upcoming talent.
