Making that one moment in time even more memorable is Kelli Burns' mission statement in life.

A disc jockey since 1987, she has evolved into being the producer and director of fun and unique corporate events and wedding receptions.

She is an entertainment consultant at such notable venues as Seven Springs, Phipps Conservatory and Nemacolin Woodlands and was the co-producer of “Girls Night Out” at Rosebud from 1999-2001, which highlighted nationally-known female recording artists.

“Not too many women are disc jockeys,” Burns said. “Events are now much more personalized and so our planning is creative yet adapted to the expectations of the hosts.”

Her work includes full event planning, from being the emcee to directing the wedding reception to creating memory montages and getting live music for the cocktail hour. Every detail is organized.

“This is always a service, not a product,” she said.

Her offices are located at 2101 Greentree Road, Scott Towne Center. She recently expanded her services into online event planning and training new disc jockeys.

“I am always coaching and helping,” she stated.

She has met many people over the years and is happy to make their events memorable. Clients have included the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Glaxo-SmithKline, the U.S. Air Force, Whirl Magazine, several members of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and movies filmed in and around Pittsburgh such as “The Mothman Prophecies” starring Richard Gere.

A past board member of the Pittsburgh Chapter International Special Events Society, she donates her time to nonprofit organizations such as the American Diabetes Association, Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and the American Cancer Society.
