About Fade to Black

About #1

Fade to Black Productions began its journey in 2004 with two guys: Carson Hand and Zach Watts. Carson and Zach grew up together as friends from church and the first DJ event ever was none other than a church event at their home church in Columbus, GA. The event was an elementary school party sponsored by St. Luke UMC in Columbus, and they approached Zach (who's father was a former DJ and church employee) who approached Carson (who had some sound and lighting equipment) about playing some music for the event. The 2 high school guys DJ-ed the event with 2 CD players, 4 lights, and a small sound system.

After the first event the guys found out it was a lot of fun to entertain others while getting to listen to music at the same time. Over the next couple of years Carson and Zach DJ-ed other church-related events on occasion, and as demand started growing for their services, they decided to get more serious about it and Zach came up with the name and original logo design, and they started investing in more equipment. As the guys started college in 2007, they began keeping a relatively busy event schedule and worked to market the company. Over the next couple of years, the company grew to be the most sought-after DJ and entertainment business in the Columbus area, working around 50 events each year.
