"TWK is a brand name you can trust. We stand behind our work"
What’s different about us? We realize that there are many companies to choose from and that pricing ranges so much. Many companies say & promise the same as the next. So what's different here at TWK? We won't promise anything we cannot deliver. We strive for excellence and our experience in the field is unmatched.
So how do you pick? We believe that the most important factor of any successful company is their foundation. Common questions you may have about a company are: When were they truly established and by whom? What industry experience do they have? Has the company been established as long as they claim? How many owners are they? HOW GOOD IS THEIR STOCK. Are they going to be in business and in good standing when your event arrives or when your products, such as video or photo albums are due long after your event is over?
The facts that most stands out about TWK: We have been in business & creating special memories since 1998. Our founder is trained in event management and has been part of the NYC & NJ event service scene before most others even started high school. We are a family owned business. No multiple owners that often disagree, become financially stressed, split and dissolve an LLP. We are truly a family owned and operated business. Jose is our lead DJ/MC and Melanie (Jose's wife) is the director of our photography & video team. You know a business owner will always care more about a client than any employee or subcontractor. We have the proof to back our claims. You will get your final product as promised in the time frame noted.

Jose Oliveras founder and lead DJ Prophet was born and raised in Hollis Queens, NYC. Influenced by a neighborhood that was the melting pot of music from many generations (Rock, Punk, New Wave) then the pioneering neighborhood of HIP-HOP and Reggae of the 80's & 90's. As the youngest of 4 siblings and son of parents that came from the island of Puerto Rico, DJ Prophet soon learned his heritage and was introduced to the sounds of Salsa, Merengue and Cumbia, then paired with old turntables and speakers.
Jose was a student at John Jay College and later graduated from NY Paralegal School in Manhattan. Working for various Law Firms in NYC & NJ, he always kept music at arms length. While working a 9-5, promoting and DJING in the NYC club circuit, he perfected his style of Latin and English music mash-ups. A big by product of what TWK is all about.
In 1998, Jose and his family decided to open up shop and the business was established. Margarita's Kitchen Inc was born (DBA The Music Kitchen DJs). Things moved quickly and a few years later, after meeting his wife Melanie in 2002 (now head of the photography team), photography was introduced to the business along with Big Ed. A new name was structured, The Wedding Kitchen (TWK Events). Many years later Jose decided to worked the event service business full-time (since 2005) along with his wife and members of family and friends. Together they are a team that brings a huge amount of knowledge and "FLAVOR" to the table. Specificly known for his American and Latin DJ skills. Jose is an original innovator and leader in the industry.
Why "Kitchen"? The kitchen at the Oliveras home has always been a place where you could find everything you need to make anyone happy. Heritage, family & love. TWK incorporated that philosophy into their business so "kitchen" stays. Why wouldn't it. Now lets start cooking up something for you!
