Our Story

The very beginnings of Harmon Entertainment started in 1996 when Dave Harmon needed an easy college credit. He decided to register for social dance class, and realized he was pretty good! He would go out dancing at every opportunity, and soon enough, people wanted to srtart learning his moves. Harmon Danceworks was born in 1999 and Dave has taught dance ever since!

In 2005, Dave met his wife Allison while swing dancing.  They like to say, “it was love at first swivel!” In 2008 they were married and planned an amazing reception full of games and dance choreography.  At the end of the night their guests kept telling them, “this is the most fun we’ve ever had at a wedding reception, you should do this for a living!”  Dave thought about doing one of his favorite things ever for a living, and a month later, Harmon Danceworks and DJ was formed.

In 2009 Dave started DJing wedding receptions and for many years he was “just a DJ”.  In 2013, he attended a DJ conference in Las Vegas and his eyes were opened to everything he didn’t know about hosting weddings. They were no longer “just DJ’s,” they were now “Wedding Entertainers”. Referrals started coming in almost immediately wanting the “Harmon Experience” they had heard so much about.  Shortly thereafter, “Harmon Danceworks and DJ” was rebranded to a more accurate description of what they do, “Harmon Entertainment.”

Today, Harmon Entertainment is the highest ranked and most reviewed DJ company in the midwest on Google, Wedding Wire and The Knot.  Besides weddings, they also offer corporate event entertainment and DJ school dances.  If it’s a party, they know how to throw it!

Back in 2008 after Dave got married, his dream was to support his family by doing what he loved.  Today he is living that dream with the help of some amazing people along the way.   That is the story of Harmon Entertainment….so far.  We can’t wait to see what the future holds!
