Meet The Owner

Erik’s Bio

As DJ Erok, Erik toured nightclubs in the Carolinas and surrounding states for 9 years. But he’s now decided to use his skills in the event and wedding industry by founding Dow Oak Events.

Erik has a history of hosting massive events and acing public speaking classes. So with him, you’re sure to have the most exciting party possible.

Erik comes from a long line of musicians. His father, Les Massengale, was also a DJ and founder of Ultimix Records. His grandfather, Burt, was the leader of the Burt Massengale Band and Orchestra. It’s safe to say Erik has music in his blood.

“I’ve been entertaining people with music since I was first handed an instrument as a toddler. For me, music isn’t just a job. It has always and will always be my whole life.”

The Best DJs. Period.

We were more than pleased with Erik! Super laid back and easy to work with. He knew exactly what music we were looking for and how to keep things going! And made sure everything went the way we had asked for the ceremony and wedding. Such a delight to work with! Thank you!

If you are looking for a DJ that will not break the bank or take up the majority of your wedding budget AND keep everyone on the dance floor …. Dow Oak Events is the perfect fit! We have gotten tons of compliments from our guests that our DJ was awesome! Freddie Sweeney was professional, easy to work with, super friendly and creative in the right ways. He allowed us to feel that our input was important, but also allowed us to trust him to take the reins. A great DJ was important to us, but also one of the areas of our wedding planning that we felt we didn’t have enough recommendations that fell into our price range, but were also great DJs. Freddie and Dow Oak exceeded our expectations and put our fears of a bad DJ that couldn’t keep people dancing to rest!

We could not have had a better experience!! The communication prior to our wedding was nothing short of the best, it was obvious she genuinely cared and wanted everything to be perfect.

Let me start by saying Freddie was amazing! The whole process of booking with Dow Oak was very simple and they really cared about making sure you were happy and satisfied with their services. They are priced VERY WELL. Freddie was on his game throughout the planning process up to the wedding. The ceremony and reception went perfectly. These guys are the best! Thanks again Freddie! love from G & A

The DJ we had did her job perfectly! She even went above and beyond to go around and let tables know when they could go up to the buffet. At one point there was a change of schedule and she just smoothly went a long with it! Thank you for helping us make our big day awesome!

This was the easiest review yet! I can’t say enough great things about Freddie. A DJ sets the mood for your event and he made our wedding reception everything we asked for and dreamed of! He kept everyone engaged and the dance floor was packed all night! I definitely recommend Freddie!

Freddie was awesome! We were supposed to have a different DJ from Dow Oak but something came up and Freddie was the replacement. We were worried at first but after talking to Freddie on the phone, we knew he would be good. He seemed very organized and did a good job of getting/keeping the party going. After the wedding, everyone was telling us how much fun they had and Freddie was a big part of that.

DJ Ryan was so easy to work with! He was prompt, flexible, and supportive of our tastes and preferences. Dow Oak Events was within our budget, provided a lot of support and helpful items within their client portal, and very easy to work with as far as payment and planning. We were very pleased with our choice and would recommend them to others.
