Q&A With Lewis Grell Of LG Event Entertainment

Today we’re turning our spotlight on Lewis Grell of LG Event Entertainment & Production, one of Houston’s hottest wedding entertainment companies. Read on to find out what makes this full-service DJ, lighting, special effects and audio-visual company a top pick for Houston weddings…and what LG Event Entertainment has in store for 2019 and 2020 couples!

Weddings in Houston: How did you get your start in wedding & event entertainment?

Lewis Grell: A good friend of mine asked me to DJ for him at his birthday party, and it wasn’t until then that I realized how much I love to entertain a crowd. This was the first step of DJing for me, and from there I became familiar with the events industry. Once I came to discover that the creativity within this profession was limitless, I was all in.

WIH: What are LG’s most in-demand wedding services?

LG: We offer a full-scale of entertainment and production—anywhere from simple lighting to a full-on CO2 blaster. Whatever you need, we can accommodate.

WIH: What do you think makes LG such a standout in the Houston wedding entertainment market?

LG: We continually evolve with the latest trends. Whether the couple knows exactly what they want or haven’t started their planning, we always suggest out-of-the-box ideas. For example: dancing dinosaur costumes!

WIH: What’s hot on the music, dance and entertainment scene for 2019-2020 weddings?

LG: You’d have to come into our showroom and find out!

WIH: Fair enough! OK…what’s your favorite first dance song?

LG: Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back”… just kidding! My most prized first dance would have to be something that truly represents the couple. Anything that has sentimental value to them.

WIH: What do you love most about working with wedding couples?

LG: The connection between the two, most definitely. I love meeting couples and just seeing the spark that’s there. Not only is it admirable, it drives me to do whatever I can to give them the best, most memorable night of their life.
