About Joseph J
For Joseph Flarity, running Joseph J. Entertainment is a full-time job. Since he first started in the industry in the early ’90s, his business has grown steadily, year by year.
Nowadays, on any given night of the week, Joseph J. Entertainment has the ability to put three of seven DJs plus one Karaoke host on the road at different venues.
Joseph J. Entertainment works a wide assortment of functions from wedding and stag and does, high schools and banquets, to recent purchase of a large, quality PA system (4,000 watts), dances up to 1,000 people can be accommodated at venues such as arenas and school gyms. An exciting light show can also be added – from a simple mirror ball to elaborate high-tech intelligent lighting fixtures. Add to this an atmosphere generator and you have created quite a presentation!
The larger PA system gives Joseph Flarity and his company the chance to move into an area previously reserved for larger organizations based in Toronto, Kitchener or London. Now anyone that wishes to put on a big event can hire locally, and not pay exorbitant transportation costs.
In the early days, Karaoke was his bread and butter, and Jospeph J Entertainment was able to fill that niche with the best selection of songs around. He still has the selection and is working weekly in such places as the Queen’s Bar and Grill in Port Elgin, Wednesday evenings. Becoming a DJ was a logical progression, especially with his background playing bass with the local band Midnight Blue out of Wiarton and his stint at Fanshawe College studying Music Industry Arts Recording Engineering. He still uses the connections he made in London while he was at Fanshawe to access the best equipment available.
Based in Port Elgin, Ontario, Canada, since 1992, Joseph is close to his markets in Owen Sound, Wiarton, Kincardine, Goderich, Wingham, and Collingwood, all just an hours drive away. Plus, he gets to raise his family which includes his wife Christine & two sons Jack and Sam in the area that he has always called home.
