When it comes to entertainment for a special occasion, there’s nothing like a rave review from a happy client.
With recommendations that label him “energetic,” “knows what the crowd likes” and “always makes singers feel welcome,” it’s no wonder that Tyler Perkins has found success as the owner of Get Vocal Entertainment Triad.
A super talented DJ who also specializes in everybody’s favorite karaoke, and a personable guy who can make the most fun out of weekly trivia night, Tyler has been in business locally for two years; and before that, gathered fans — and compliments — with karaoke and DJ services in the Asheville area. (Fun fact from Tyler: While in Asheville, he worked with Caleb Johnson, winner of the season 13 edition of American Idol!)
Tyler’s love of music started early.
“I’ve been singing since I was a little kid and have always wanted to do it in some fashion,” said Tyler, adding he hopes to eventually learn to play his guitar, too!
Tyler has been the music maestro at hundreds of weddings and corporate parties in the area and is participating in his first bridal show in the Triad as part of a plan to expand the wedding side of the business. He also keeps busy with corporate meetings, holiday parties, charity auctions and a variety of other community events where music can make all the difference.
But karaoke is still the number one trend.
“I like to focus on karaoke in our regular weekly venues,” said Tyler. Those regular gigs include CB’s Tavern in Winston-Salem, River Ridge Tap House in Clemmons, The Worx in Greensboro, Old Nick’s Pub in Lewisville which was voted Best Karaoke Night in the Triad for 2016 by YES! Weekly and a new family friendly show at Honky Tonk Smokehouse in Winston-Salem on the second Thursday of every month. The folks at Old Nick’s Pub are quick to note Tyler brings a unique brand of high-energy fun to their venue and leads popular line dances and joins customers in duets and group numbers.
That’s the special touch Tyler has at every show. Taking that first brave step to get up to the microphone can be intimidating for a lot of folks, but he gives his all to make sure everyone in the crowd has a good time and that would-be singers feel welcome to take the stage.
“I always ask first-timers at my shows to please stay at least 30 minutes to see how my show is different from others,” said Tyler. “In no time at all, they are up there singing.”
Tyler provides all the necessary equipment for a successful karaoke night, along with the TV monitor to read those all-important lyrics. No matter what your favorite music genre or singing style, Tyler can provide the tunes.
“Our music library has been built — legally — for 20 years, and we have all kinds of music,” said Tyler. “Our karaoke is updated weekly, so we have all the new songs, too.”
Get Vocal Entertainment Triad can also provide dance floor lighting for your special event, up lighting for an elegant dinner presentation or concert lighting if that’s what will push your event over the top! As a seasoned DJ, Tyler also coordinates just how the evening will flow.
It’s all part of the magic of bringing parties to life and establishing the right mood from the very beginning.
“I love my job,” said Tyler. “I love my customers and want to provide them with the best — not just another karaoke show.”
Lucky to do what he loves on a daily basis, Tyler continues growing his business and building friendships along the way.
“If you do something you love and get paid for it, you’ll never work a day in your life,” said Tyler.
