An Interview with Dave Hoeffel - DJ Genius!

Dave Hoeffel is an amazing disc jockey and great friend.  With his experience, passion, and success in the music industry - we just had to pick his brain!  Owner of Sound Choice DJ's, Dave has been a top pick for WeddingWire and The Knot, while he brings music to millions through Sirius XM Radio.  Here's what he has to say: Tell us a bit about yourself, Sound Choice DJ's and your time on Satellite radio?

I think sometimes we forget about the farmer and his crew that guide the flowers from seedlings to gorgeous blooms!
