Welcome to another vendor spotlight post! This month, we are featuring Cole Blessinger with Blessinger Entertainment. Man, I can’t even remember how long we’ve been working together now, probably around two or three years. Cole is one of my go-to DJ’s when I’m recommending and planning! Read on to learn about this awesome dude and his business!
Ha ha! There’s Cole! I swear you can’t even tell he’s working sometimes because he truly loves what he does. A little bit about Cole; he started DJ’ing at the Frank Southern Ice Arena in the 5th Grade (whoa!) and Dj’d his cousin’s wedding the summer after his 8th Grade year! When he was in high school, Wedding Wire reached out to him and he’s slowly but surly built his business from there, and says he’s so blessed to have continued to grow.
Cole has officially been in business since July of 2013, and he was born and raised right here in Bloomington, Indiana. He has always enjoyed technology, music, and people, so it’s no wonder he has a passion for DJ’ing!
As you probably know from reading our blog, small businesses are really important to us and a huge passion (well, we are one after all!) So, when asked what owning a small business means to you and why do you love it, Cole responded with this:
My business has been my dream in the making for years. I love it because of the room for growth and the ability to work with so many amazing couples and vendors and bring their dreams to reality.Cole Blessinger, Blessinger Entertainment
Cole’s day usually starts between 9 and 10 a.m. if time allows. He gets set up early in case there’s anything that needs to be taken care of, any troubleshooting, etcetera. Then he’ll go get some grub and make sure he’s back in time to get ready for the ceremony or reception. That’s one reason I absolutely LOVE working with Cole. He comes in so prepared for the day, making sure he’s set up well in advance and then gets back with his playing shoes on and he’s fired up and ready to go!
Cole’s business is set apart by his love for people and a desire to say “Yes!” if at all possible. He loves working with couples and clients and helping them create a night full of memories. He says he loves working with happy couples and also vendors who are passionate about exceeding their couples expectations. Now that’s a great DJ! Another reason I enjoy working with Cole so much is that you can truly see his care for people and the interest he has in what he does. Cole is almost always chatting with people, helping them feel comfortable in the space and making sure they are having a great time! He’s so personable and you can really just tell he’s having the time of his life on wedding nights!
When asked who or what inspires him, Cole said:
Jason Jani of SCE Event Group, an Entertainment Company Owner out of New Jersey, that is constantly pushing the limits of the industry.Cole Blessinger, Blessinger Entertainment
If Cole wasn’t a DJ, he says he would definitely be a business owner or a consultant. I’d say he definitely created his perfect dream job! On his day off, he loves the lake or the slopes, or getting on a plane and going somewhere! (Could you imagine just hitting the airport and picking a plane?) His favorite place to eat is Asuka in Bloomington, and he says he loves the Apple Store as far as shopping goes (don’t even get me started on the many conversations we’ve had about Apple versus Android!)
Don’t forget to check Cole out on social, and if you’re in need of an exceptional DJ for your wedding, party, or event, reach out! You will not be disappointed 🙂
