Welcome to episode 77 of The Celebrated Life! Today we’re talking with Jordan Kahn of Jordan Kahn Music Company. The Jordan Kahn Music Company has become the fastest-rising entertainment house in the world, establishing themselves as the new standard in luxury entertainment for every kind of celebration. Jordan Kahn’s bands have performed for George. W Bush, founder of Yelp, Jeremy Stoppelman, “The Bachelor in Paradise” stars Jared and Ashley, Mark Cuban, and Jerry Jones.
GETTING STARTED IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY
Jordan is an extremely gifted musician and has the ability to learn songs very quickly. He has been studying music his whole life. When he was 3 years old, his family was driving from Ohio to Dallas and he started singing along to Frank Sinatra. His parents recognized that he was very talented at such a young age and got him into different instruments. It only progressed from there.
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT
Jordan started DJing parties when he was 12 years old. From there, he kept DJing and studied music in high school. He did Jazz, choir, musical theater… everything that involved music. Once he graduated high school, he went to college for music.
JORDAN KAHN MUSIC COMPANY
His love for music grew into him starting the Jordan Kahn Orchestra. All of what they do is completely custom. From immersive entertainment, to 20-30 piece orchestras, they take pride in customizing the energy, the songs, and the moments for each couple. When we asked Jordan about getting people on the dance floor he said, “There is a science and math that goes along with the songs and building energy. When you are going from one genre to the next you have to see, who is on the dance floor, who is not, and how do I bring them on the dance floor? [I’ve Had] The Time Of My Life from “Dirty Dancing” always gets everyone going.”
STAYING IN TIP TOP SHAPE
Jordan says that, “Performance days are like a ritual.” There are certain things he does not eat before a big performance. He doesn’t have any caffeine on show days, or anything that dries out his vocal cords. He also doesn’t eat chocolate, hot sauce, tomatoes, or anything that causes acid reflux. He suggests, “You want to be basic with your food and water intake on show days. And get lots of rest!”
