MEET OUR TEAM
YVAN CARO – Co-Founder & DJ
Yvan began refining his skills as a DJ in his parents’ basement during his teenage years. He started bringing his unique style to the masses at high school dances, house parties, and sweet sixteens. With his mixed cultural background and a passion for various styles of music, he just always knew how to please a crowd. During his college years, he created the DJ SPY-C pseudonym and made his way onto the club scene for a few years. This is where he truly learned the art of beat mixing and blending. It was also around the same time that he became friends with Samir Khullar, who is better known to the world as comedy star Sugar Sammy. Sam eventually and selflessly played a huge role in paving the way for Yvan’s success as a DJ. However, because of societal pressures, Yvan disappeared into the corporate world for several years before returning to his true passion. Today, he is happy to be the headlining DJ and proud co-owner of Exclusive Events.
TOMMY FURINO – Co-Founder & Emcee
Simply stated, Tommy loves entertaining people. Being in front of a crowd of people that is both enjoying and fueling his performance is what makes him tick and ultimately motivates him to continuously hone his craft. He spent 3 years working in the radio business at the team990 (now known to Montreal listeners as tsn690). While he loved the knowledge and experience he gained from that period in his life, he felt like he needed a closer connection to his audience. From there, he went on to train and work as an actor. This is something he still loves and continues to pursue. Today, Tommy is the featured Master of Ceremonies in Exclusive Events and takes pride in being one of the co-owners of the company. His passion for what he does is one of his greatest strengths. He will put everything he has into every single performance and will take you along for the ride.
Fabrice joined the team in 2012 and is the company’s main francophone master of ceremonies. With over 15 years experience in diverse forms of entertainment, Fabrice is certainly multi-faceted. As a musician, songwriter, and leader in comedy improv, he will definitely add a personal touch to your event to make it even more exclusive!
The company was founded by two friends sharing a common vision which would ultimately become their mission statement. They sincerely believe that producing an event with the combination of excellent music, quality sound, and beautiful lighting based specifically on their client’s needs and expectations for their wedding, corporate event, or private party, is what sets them apart from others. They are entirely committed to making their clients their number one priority and making their dream event a reality.
It all started in late 2009 when Yvan was hired to DJ a friend’s wedding. He really wanted to make that day special for her, so he asked Tommy if he’d be willing to help him out as the MC. Tommy accepted, and they ended up putting on a great show. However, not long after that wedding, an unfortunate incident took place that would put this newly formed partnership to the test. One night, Yvan’s building got robbed, which included all his DJ gear. This brought him to an important crossroad in his life. He begged the universe for a sign on whether he should quit the DJ business all-together or whether this was all just intended to be a wake-up call. The very next day is when he got THE call from his friend Sugar Sammy. As it turns out, Sam needed Yvan’s help with a special project for his Canadian tour. This was all it took for him to realize that he wasn’t done as a DJ yet. He used the insurance money from the robbery to start over, even more passionate than before. Without business cards, or a website, or any other form of advertisement, things began snowballing for Yvan and Tommy.
That same year, Sammy’s generosity and willingness to help others went one step further when he referred Yvan and Tommy for a beautiful wedding in a private club in the old port of Montreal that was organized by one of the premier event planners at Cava Rose. Like the proverbial saying goes, the rest is history. Exclusive Events was born.
Since then, Exclusive Events has been involved in many tremendous events in many beautiful venues. They were the DJs for an award-winning Valentine’s Day fundraiser organized by Cava Rose in the Montreal CDP building. They also worked with local celebrity Sophie Gregoire to organize a surprise birthday party for Liberal party leader Justin Trudeau, as well as handling corporate events for CTV, RDS, and numerous other companies in Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto. For the team at Exclusive Events, this really isn’t just their business… It’s their passion!
