MEET OUR TEAM
DJ, Photo Booth Personnel, & Coordinator
I began as a DJ in 2009 by working for a DJ company. I left them in 2011 and started All Access DJ in 2012 after watching so many DJ companies not take care of the bride on their wedding day.
I want to be different. I offer a personal touch to every bride and treat each bride like royalty. After all, this is a once in a lifetime event and the bride deserves to be treated like royalty.
I do like to have fun during the receptions. I am very interactive with the guests in order to keep them engaged and enjoying the whole reception. I offer interactive games to assist with that.
I will not contract a wedding without sitting down with the bride and groom face to face. To me it is that important and it is important to have that personal connection. We go through a timeline and music so that your big day will be worry free. My job is to keep the event flowing so you can spend the entire evening enjoying your guests.
I do not treat you as a number as so many DJ companies do. For most, the dollar is the bottom line. For All Access DJ, YOU are the bottom line.
I will also meet with you as many times necessary so you feel very comfortable with how the event will go. Remember...it is all about YOU!
“Without music, life would be a mistake.” (Friedrich Nietzsche) This is a quote that I have passionately agreed with for as long as I can remember. From my time growing up in the 90’s with my walk-man by my side to managing my own CD store for about 5 years to DJ-ing many clubs, parties, and weddings; music has always been a huge part of my life. I realized young my desire to play music but when I realized I would never be the next Hendrix on the guitar, or Billy Joel on the piano, I dove headfirst into listening and learning about music.
I started DJ-ing doing teen night clubs, parties, and high school proms at the age of 18 in NJ and after a move to NC, I started working with DJ Professionals and Video and did my first wedding and have rarely looked back since, even after my move to TX, logging in over a 100 weddings during my DJ career. I love DJ-ing weddings and getting the opportunity to work with the Bride and Groom and help make their day memorable. I do everything I can to “make the customer happy” and I truly mean that unlike many of the big box companies out there. I always vow to my clients that I will listen, learn about what YOU want, what YOU need, what will make YOU happy, and then offer ideas of how I can make that happen. Simply put, my goal as an Event Specialist is to truly make everything about YOU! I want you and your guests to leave the party or wedding happier than you arrived. I want you to be able to say that the music helped elevate your event to the next level and honestly be able to say, I could not be any happier than I am right now!

Steve La Barbera
I started out playing guitar as a teenager and learned how to mix live music at Church. After seeing a DJ use two turntables I realized my passion for DJ'ing. I bought my first pair of turntables and mixer and taught myself how to beatmatch. I went to school for audio engineering and learned how to setup concert style sound and lighting and have been involved in the A/V equipment service industry and DJing for two decades. I enjoy DJ'ing at corporate events, weddings, birthday parties, night clubs, grand openings, 5K runs, and charity events. I also love mixing sound for live bands. I know how to rock the dance floor and always go above and beyond for my customers!

One of my favorite quotes is; "Life is an adventure. It's not the destination we reach that's most rewarding, It's the journey along the way. So write it down and treasure the memory forever - Live, Love, Laugh....."
For as long as I can remember, I have always loved helping people with their weddings. I love to see everyone smiling, having fun, and making those life long memories that are looked back on and that again brings a smile to your face. It is truly the greatest feeling knowing that you have contributed to the most special day of a Bride and Grooms next adventure in their life.
I am a proud mom of four kids and very family oriented, being committed to spending time making memories is a priority for me. I am an Ordained Minister and a Devoted Christian but I also love volunteering. Some of those positions include; a Church Deacon, a Volunteer Youth Sponsor, going on yearly week long Mission trips, and a Boy Scouts of America Adult Leader/Chair Member/Assistant Scout Master.
Being a part of All Access DJ has been exciting, fun, and memorable. I look forwarded to being apart of your Special Day Memories where it's all about you!
Photo Booth Attendant
I was born and raised in California. Moved to Texas in 2010. I am a hairstylist and a new business owner. I love meeting new people and hearing their different life stories. In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with family. I am excited to be apart of the All Access team! I am also a current bride of All Access!
I am happily married to my husband Wade and we have two sweet fur babies. I have always had a love for weddings and a passion for organizing and planning. I first put those hobbies to use when a good friend asked me to help make sure her wedding day went smoothly so she and her mom could relax and enjoy getting ready together. All of her vendors said I did a great job and had a natural talent for coordinating. I decided to turn those hobbies into a profession and decided become a Wedding Coordinator. I have truly enjoyed helping every couple bring to life the wedding they imagined. It is my job to execute every single detail to ensure you have the wedding of your dreams and enjoy every moment.
