The owner of AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting, Michael Edwards played his first wedding way back in 1973 as a teenaged bass player in a “live” band. He sang and played a variety of instruments (guitar, keyboards, bass, trumpet, percussion etc) as a full-time musician for over 20 years…touring and sharing the stage with legends like Chuck Berry, Roy Orbison, Brenda Lee, Little Anthony, the Clancy Brothers and many others before switching over to performing strictly for weddings, as a DJ/MC, since in 1996.
In 2013, after thousands of weddings over 40 years and experience entertaining audiences of all ages in every musical style, he retired from active performing… (although we still get plenty of inquiries hoping to book him). This move has allowed Michael to devote his time and energy to training our new DJs and overseeing the day to day operation of the AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting office at the Bridal Center in Andover. He is also enjoying more family time now, along with his other lifelong passion, playing ice hockey.
