MY STORY

My name is Ryan Williams. I first was attracted to the world of music at a young age, singing in groups and performing in musicals starting in second grade. By the time I was 16 I was referred to Whirlin' Disc DJ's by a friend of mine that had been working with them for a few months. From the very first wedding I serviced, I was in love with the job. I continued to work with Whirlin' Disc through college, where I earned a business degree with the intent of starting my own company. By 2018 I was managing all bookings and events for the Whirlin' Disc. After 4 Years and over 100 events under my belt I took the leap of faith, leaving Whirlin' Disc to launch Rayner Sound Entertainment in August of 2019. Using connections I had made being in the industry, I had a fast start and was quickly booking events for the 2020 season. Unfortunately, we all know what the year 2020 introduced. When the country locked down I lost all the progress I had made. Every event I had booked called and cancelled due to the virus. Unsure of what to do, I began working at restaurants for money. For the next two years I cooked, served, and bartended at 4 different restaurants. Just as I was beginning to regret leaving my passion behind, burning out from the constant hours of the food industry, I was given a second chance. The man that had trained me back in 2015, asked if I was still DJing. Eager to return I said yes. unbeknownst to me, he was the in house DJ for Syracuse Athletics, and asked if I would take the position over. After working my first game, that feeling came back to me. I once again fell in love with mixing music and bringing energy to events and smiles to faces. 2 months later I attended a wedding show to being bookings for the 2023 season. The very next day, the restaurant I had bartended at for the last year suddenly closed with no warning to the employees whatsoever. I took this as a sign to put all of my energy into building my company back from the ground up. Since then I have practiced every day, honing my mixing skills and expanding my song catalogue. I am beyond happy to have my company back in full swing and I hope you'll consider letting me make the most important day of your life a party you won't ever forget.
