Hi, my name is Mitch Fortune, and I am the owner of Remix Weddings. I began working as a DJ twenty five years ago when I served as the DJ for my own 15th birthday party! Though I really had no idea what I was doing then, that night was all it took for me to fall in love with being a DJ. Not long after that, my friends were asking me to play at their parties, and from there things just kept growing. By the time I graduated high school I was DJing the dances at the local high schools and middle schools in the area, and I was working as an on air DJ at an underground pirate radio station. By the time I went off to college, I had put together a professional DJ rig, had learned to beat match, and had started a career I was in love with. While studying technical theatre at UNC-Chapel Hill, I paid my way through school DJing at bars and night clubs in the Raleigh Durham area, and I frequently performed at private events, opened shows for bands, and threw raging fraternity parties around the triangle.
In 2001 I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in dramatic arts, with an emphasis on lighting and sound design. I moved to Raleigh, NC after college, and continued to produce and DJ parties for high profile clients such as IBM, Winston Tobacco, GE, Duke University, UNC-Chapel Hill, Red Bull, and Glaxo-Smith Kline. In 2004 I moved home, to Asheville, North Carolina, to be closer to my family and the place I grew up. Upon settling in I took on a 4 year DJ residency at The Red Room, one of Asheville’s most popular 80’s, 90’s, and top 40 dance clubs at the time. Over the years, I have also appeared at most of Asheville’s most popular night spots such as Scandals, Club 11, Asheville Music Hall, and Hairspray to name a few, and have appeared at clubs all over the southeast. If you have been out for a night of dancing in Asheville, I was probably spinning the music.
Currently, I live in Asheville (Beer City USA) with my husband Jake, our twin sons Aiden and Andrew, our dog Pepper, and our cat Dos. For the last ten years I have been working full time as a wedding DJ in the Asheville, North Carolina area, and my focus is creating fantastic and stylish events for my clients. Having a degree in theater, I treat every wedding like it is a show. Your bridal party is the cast, your wedding vendors the crew, and you are the star. To make the show go off without a hitch, I work with my clients and their vendors to plan every detail down to the minute, so there are no surprises, and so that once the planning is done, my clients can relax and enjoy the production as it goes on around them. When it comes time to dance, I will throw down a dance mix that will get everyone young and old on the dance floor. Over the years I have learned to read a crowd, and can walk into any room and make people get up, dance, and have fun. Isn't that what you want from a DJ?
