Sophisticated Gents Entertainment & Event Design Is More Than Just Music- Meet Your Event Experts

By Elisha Neubauer

In a world bombarded with music player apps, why should you hire an entertainment company for your next event? It's simple: because anyone can just play music, but it takes a real skill to entertain guests in the process. So says Frederick Smith, owner of Sophisticated Gents Entertainment & Event Design, who wants you to be aware of the differences between a media player and live entertainment.

"When we say, anyone can play music but it takes a special skill to entertain guests, we mean that it takes years of experience and training to be able to read a crowd and know what will work to get them involved," Smith explains. "This is particularly important at weddings since weddings are typically a big mixture of all types of people, young and old, and their taste in music tends to vary greatly."

Sophisticated Gents sets itself apart from other DJ companies simply in their display of passion for perfection and attention to detail. "Also, since this is our full-time occupation, we can devote our full-time attention to our clients to ensure the event goes exactly the way they want it to," states Smith. "Our music knowledge is extensive," he continues. "With over 200,000 songs in our library, we cover all genres of music. From big band to top 40 to jazz, oldies, country, Motown, disco, and even specialty ethnic music, we have it all."

In addition to their live entertainment, the all-inclusive entertainment company hosts several expos throughout the year for the upcoming bridal parties. "After years of participating as an exhibitor in other local bridal shows, we decided 15 years ago to start producing our own bridal shows," Smith details. "We now have 40+ expos under our belt and have even produced bridal shows for the Gaylord Palms in Orlando and the exclusive Tampa Waterside Marriott Hotel."

Three years ago, the company decided to branch out, now hosting Women's expos and Home and Garden expos across the state. "Expos have been a great addition to our business and our bridal shows are without a doubt, the best way for us to book new weddings," Smith states. "It's an ideal situation for us; one side of our business feeds the other."

Sophisticated Gents Entertainment and Event Design can handle everything from local weddings to destination weddings, proms to homecomings, and more. "Weddings, without a doubt, make up the majority of our business," affirms Smith. "Of course, we can do any type of event from corporate events to sweet 16s to quinceaneras. We definitely do more weddings than anything though, approximately 125+ a year."
