The PPE Story
PPE Event Group (formerly Premiere Party Entertainment) is family owned and operated by two brothers, who were raised right here in Greenville, South Carolina (Travelers Rest to be exact). Sean and Austyn have had a passion for music and performing for crowds since before they finished high school.
Sean, the oldest brother by 6 years, started DJing when he was just 16, mentored under another Greenville DJ company (no longer in operation) and learned every skill possible to set him forward in the mobile entertainment industry. Sean always has had a passion for being an entrepreneur, even at a young age of 14 he'd fix bicycles for the kids in the neighborhood, of course charging a small fee for his time and skills. After high school, and during his college years, he always continued to follow his passion for music and entertainment, DJing college events and events for local schools and community events. Throughout his life, Sean has held that passion for music, and added on air personality to his resume, this career jump also started at the young age of 16, as he was an on air intern for Clemson University's college radio station, WSBF-FM Clemson 88.1. His radio career has taken him to be on the radio in South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Currently he's an on air personality for heritage Top 40 WFBC-FM, B93.7 (home of the Hawk and Tom Show).
Austyn too started his DJing career at the age of 16 with the same former Greenville DJ company Sean got his start from. Mentoring the same way Sean did, and perfecting his craft at weddings and events. Austyn has never stopped hustling and never lost his passion for the love of music. Austyn has now started a second venture within the PPE brand, Premiere Party Catering. And while you might think he has taken a backseat to the entertainment side of our business, it's quite the opposite. In fact, don't be shocked if you see Austyn cooking in the kitchen at your wedding, and then also getting behind the DJ booth to rock your wedding or event!
While Sean and Austyn continued to DJ as a hobby, they realized they could team up and create an epic weddings and events company together for a growing Greenville, SC. Seven years ago, Premiere Party Entertainment (now PPE Event Group) was created, and what once was considered a hobby, is now a full time hustle. PPE has been created and designed with passion and heart by two brothers who believed in themselves, and believed in reinventing the definition of a DJ. PPE is getting rid of that "cheesy" dj stereotype, and making it cool to be in the entertainment industry. PPE doesn't stop at ordinary, and goes the extra mile, and is always thinking of new and creative innovated ways to incorporate that extra "wow" factor into their weddings and events. PPE doesn't believe in being just average, and believes your wedding should be something people are still talking about during your one year anniversary.
