Duane combines a lifetime of musical passion and performance with 20 years experience as a television anchor, host and emcee.
His father built him his first DJ booth in the rec room of their basement when he was 8 years old. The parties he would host for friends in a darkened room full of flashing Christmas lights, would mark the humble beginnings of a passion for sharing the power of music.
You could definitely say Duane took the road less travelled to Professional DJ and Emcee… From a child singing in grade school choir to television meteorologist, his entertainment career has made many diverse stops along the way: record store manager, bartender, cook, ranch hand, saddle maker, actor and professional singer/drummer.
His unassuming appeal on television, has made him a frequently requested emcee for community events.
Duane’s vast musical and performance experience combine to give him the expertise to guide your event with appropriate humour and the sensitivity to know the music that will make your event great.
He has lived from St. John’s to Victoria with several cities in between, but is beyond happy to call the Okanagan home with his musical wife Wesla.
Music is central to the English Family; when not playing or listening to music together, you can find them forecasting weather for MyBCWeather.com, skiing, hiking with their dogs or just simply outside enjoying everything the Okanagan has to offer.
