As a wedding DJ for Harmon Entertainment, you get to know your couples more than just clients or a bride and groom, they become your FAMILY. When the news broke about this and I found out who the shot officer was..... I was in shock and my heart broke!!!! My thoughts and prayers go out to the Holte family especially to his wife Mandy and new born son! You were an amazing husband, father, and a great part of my family! Rest in Peace my brother!!! I will meet you up in heaven for another great DANCE!!!!!!❤❤❤

On May 27, a shooting occurred in Grand Forks, N.D. that took the life of Officer Cody Holte of the Grand Forks Police Department. Officer Holte was also a First Lieutenant in the North Dakota National Guard. Maj. Gen. Al Dohrmann, adjutant general and Brig. Gen. Leo Ryan, N.D. Army National Guard commander, released the following statements about Lt. Holte.

Major General Alan Dohrmann:
"On May 27 our state lost one of its finest, when Officer Cody Holte of the Grand Forks police department was killed in the line of duty. Officer Holte was also a First Lieutenant in the North Dakota Army National Guard. Cody dedicated his life to serving his community, state, and nation, always putting the needs of his Soldiers and the citizens he served above his own. On behalf of all the Soldiers and Airmen of the North Dakota National Guard, Becky and I extend our deepest sympathies to his wife, son, parents and loved ones.”

Brig. Gen. Leo Ryan:
"Yesterday we lost a brother-in- arms, 1st Lt. Cody Holte. He served as the commander of Det 2, 815th Engineer Company and was a true Soldier. Cody was a selfless leader who spent countless hours preparing his unit for upcoming missions. He led from the front and always put his Soldiers’ needs before his own. Lt. Holte performed every duty to the best of his ability and mentored and motivated his Soldiers to the highest level of readiness. All the Soldiers of the N.D. Army National Guard will miss Cody; we send our deepest condolences to his family and friends."

1st Lt. Cody Holte, 29, assigned to the Lisbon-based 815th Engineer Company was killed in the line of duty in Grand Forks N.D. Holte enlisted in the Army Reserve in 2010, he later commissioned as a 2nd Lt. in the N.D. Army National Guard in 2015, where he served until the time of his death.

Really good news came out on Friday for weddings in North Dakota. Guidelines changed to allow 250 person weddings or 50% of the room capacity. Tricky part about it is they still say "No Dance Floor". I understand why as you don't want people all congregated in one compact place....for now.

The guideline does not say anything about no dancing. I can see phase 1 weddings having lots of room between tables so people can dance anywhere they wish...and still keep social distancing. Basically the entire room will be the dance floor.

We are also working on other entertainment option during the dance time to create fun for groups that want something different.

Overall I think it is a great first step to getting our clients events happening again, while still being ND Smart.

Dave

Our Story

To get to the beginning of Harmon Entertainment, we have to take you all the way back to 1996. Dave Harmon (aka “the founder”) was attending NDSU and he needed an easy class for a credit. After looking at all the classes offered he decided on registering for a social dance class. It didn’t take long for him to realize he was a pretty good dancer, especially when it came to swing dancing. Shortly after finishing that class, the swing dance craze started growing in Fargo. Dave would go out dancing whenever the opportunity presented itself and when others started noticing his talent, they wanted to learn from him. That eventually led to him starting his own dance class in 1999 and Harmon Danceworks was born. Since then Dave has taught thousands of couples how to dance through his social dance classes.

In 2005, Dave met his wife Allison while swing dancing at the Avalon downtown. They like to say, “it was love at first swivel!” In 2008 they were married and planned an amazing reception at the Holiday Inn in Fargo, ND. At their reception they did a fun grand march, two choreographed first dance’s, and games throughout the night that kept their guests engaged. At the end of the night their guests kept telling them, “this is the most fun we’ve ever had at a wedding reception, you should do this for a living!” Dave thought about it, and realized that one of his favorite things to do in life was attend and dance at wedding receptions. He pondered if it was possible to make a living doing one of his favorite things in life? A month later Harmon Danceworks and DJ was formed.

In 2009 Dave started DJing wedding receptions and for many years he was “just a DJ”. He brought in another DJ, and they got better as they got more experience, but it wasn’t until the spring of 2014 when he attended a DJ conference in Las Vegas that everything changed. His eyes were opened to everything he didn’t know about being a wedding entertainer. Changes were made to the business model and now they were no longer “just DJ’s,” they were now “Wedding Entertainers”. The results were almost immediate as the referrals started coming in wanting the “Harmon Experience” they had heard so much about. Shortly thereafter, “Harmon Danceworks and DJ” was rebranded to a more accurate description of what they do, “Harmon Entertainment.”

In the fall of 2014, Dave brought on Troy Collins as a wedding entertainer. Troy was fun, organized, responsible, and had amazing customer service skills. His clients loved him and shortly thereafter he was moved from part time entertainer, to a full time employee, as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

In December of 2017, another part time entertainer, Marcus Goossens, was promoted to full time as “Entertainment Director” for the company. He trains all the wedding entertainers and holds them accountable to put on a “Harmon Entertainment” wedding. With his “I will figure it out” attitude he is self-taught in Photoshop and video editing which has been an amazing asset for the photobooth and monogram divisions of Harmon Entertainment. Troy and Marcus are a huge reason of why Harmon Entertainment has been so successful and has grown from 100 weddings in 2015 to over 300 in 2018.

The company has not only seen growth in their number of events they do every year, it has also grown in the number of employees it has. With over 14 part-time entertainers, there are also three full-time entertainers. Brandon Forde, Tom Brenner, and Joe Johnson are all full time entertainers for the company doing 40-60 events per year. The employees are at the core of our business and Harmon Entertainment wouldn’t be anything without them!

Today, Harmon Entertainment is the highest ranked and most reviewed DJ company in the state of North Dakota on Wedding Wire and The Knot websites. They offer DJ, MC, lighting, photobooths, décor, and dance lessons. Besides weddings, they also offer corporate event entertainment and DJ school dances. If it’s a party, they know how to throw it!

Back in 2008 after Dave got married, his dream was to support his family by doing what he loved. Today he is living that dream with the help of some amazing people along the way. That is the story of Harmon Entertainment….so far. Can’t wait to see what the future holds!

Hailey and Bradys wedding was the most fun ever. AJ did a fabulous job and nailed it! All guests had a blast! Thanks again to a stellar job.
Maybe not the best photo but we were having to much fun. Brandon F was the DJ at my wedding and 1 year later my friend hired him for theirs! Brandon is a top of line for Harmon and so grateful he remembered us and made both weddings so great and memorable!
We would like to thank DJ AJ for making our day so special. He was so easy to talk to and what ever we wanted he had it covered. We didn’t have to worry about a thing, he took over and made the whole day/ night exactly how we wanted it!! We had so many great compliments on AJ. The dance floor was packed all night!! 😊 I will definitely recommend this amazing company to everyone! Harmon Entertainment goes above and beyond and I can’t thank them enough! Our day was perfect! Thank you Dave Harmon and Troy Collins for EVERYTHING!!
Wedding season is in full swing and we are thankful for the wonderful reviews that we have gotten over the last week. Thank you Tom and Kristin for doing amazing events for us. Tom Brenner was our Harmon Entertainment DJ for our wedding 5-5-18. We had 1 overall request for our day, and that was for the DJ to take charge and make everything flow smoothly! Tom took charge and met with us at least 3 times in the 6 months prior to our wedding. He presented a list of options and was open to suggestions the whole time. He worked with ALL parties involved in the wedding including the photographer and venue. The week before the wedding he presented us with a timeline. It was so nice to have the peace of mind knowing when and where we needed to be. The wedding day finally came, and Tom held true to what he offered! Every time the bridal party was needed for something, he would PERSONALLY come to find us and let us know when we needed to be somewhere. Tom’s professionalism and fun cooperative personality made our wedding day fun stress free and memorable! Your guests will eventually forget about the decorations, the venue and the food.... but they’ll always remember how fun the reception and dance were! Harmon Entertainment knows this, and the excel at what they do! Thank you Tom for making our day fun and stress free!!!! Kristen ROCKED IT at Tom and Tina's wedding dance on Saturday. As a wedding photographer I've been to many, many weddings and this wedding dance was one of the most fun dances I HAVE EVER BEEN TO! Great job Kristen!
Dave, You did an amazing job with the reception and dance. So many people commented "We had a blast!!! Who and where was the D.J. from????" I will recommend you to every couple I know that is looking for a D.J. Thank you 😊😃😃😃
On August 5, 2015 Troy worked his magic on directing us threw my daughters wedding in Fargo. All the special touches still brings happy tears to my eyes. It is not the food people remember, it's the music and the reception. On June 8, 2018 we are so excited to have Troy coming to be apart of our other daughters wedding. Troy and Harmon Entertainment will always forever be apart of our family.
