He wanted to learn more about the FAME School and Robb’s Sales techniques. Eric then hosted a FAST Seminar in Pittsburgh at Dave N’ Busters and had Robb Smith come to teach his sales techniques to other DJ’s from Pittsburgh & Ohio. There after Eric became so interested in the FAME DJ School he became an Instructor. Starting out his business as a sole proprietor, his company has now evolved into a growing entertainment business. In 2005 Eric expanded to accompany the growing needs of his clients.

To this day they now offer Concert Production, Corporate Rentals, Lighting, Live Sound, Audio/Video Production & Recording, Event Coordinating, Event Photography, Stage & Tent Rentals, and of course the soul of the business - Disc Jockeys. Eric has also teamed up with Impact Audio which offers most of Wenning Entertainment’s live sound production. They have 4 offices across the nation in Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Charlotte, and Dallas. This way they can offer multiple sound systems when doing National Tours. Wenning Entertainment has supplied concert production and live sound for bands such as the Gin Blossoms, Kip Winger, Duncan Sheik, Vieanna Tang, Big & Rich, Barry Manilow and many more.
