Today we’d like to introduce you to Toryn Lankford.
Toryn, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
2 turntables, a laptop and a hard drive full of music lead me down a path to creating Exquisite Sounds Entertainment.
For years, I had admired the skills and talents of friends and family who just happened to be DJs all around me and only after being asked to assist on a few mobile events did I get enough courage to jump in the game. After getting a few piece of equipment, practicing for days and months on end, I was FINALLY given an opportunity by a cousin to DJ for an upcoming Sweet 16. I only had a few days to prepare, grab a few additional piece of equipment and get over my fear, but I showed up, rocked that Sweet 16 and haven’t looked back since.
That party was over 8 years ago and in that time, I’ve managed to start, grow and nurture Exquisite Sounds Entertainment and grow my personal Brand of “DJ Toryn L” in that timeframe. Today, I’m excited to share that we’ve been in business for almost 7 years, average more than 125 events per year currently and have been recognized as an industry leader here in the Atlanta area!
Each year, seems to get better and better and we’re excited to take things to the next level with new opportunities and new services each week! As they say, long live Exquisite Sounds Entertainment!!!
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The road here definitely hasn’t been smooth… along the way, I’ve personally learned so many lessons and experienced even more. Through it all, I’ve come to understand the importance of building relationships, being patient and also and most importantly, treating your clients even better than you’d want to be treated.
Please tell us about Exquisite Sounds Entertainment.
Exquisite Sounds Entertainment specializes in hand waving, outgoing and exquisite entertainment for private and special events. Our specialty and what we’ve become known for, are the AMAZING weddings that we’ve become apart of. Over the course of 7 years, we’ve performed at over 350 weddings throughout Atlanta, Florida, Alabama, South & North Carolina and even Washington D.C, just to name a few!
At Exquisite Sounds Entertainment, our level of service and dedication to our clients is what’s helped us to be recognized as an industry leader. It’s also what helped us to excel and set ourselves apart from others in the same space.
Being proud of the team, the accomplishments and the growth, isn’t even close to how I feel when thinking of what we’ve built! It’s AMAZING and the next few years are going to be even better! The future looks so extremely bright and we can’t wait to bring it EACH AND EVERY WEEKEND!!!
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
If I had to start things over… I wouldn’t change much. The journey has taught me the value of patience, relationship building and planning. Tough lessons to grasp sometimes but these things, I believe are the building blocks of creating and running a successful business.
