Marcus Trollmann, Owner and Founder of Phoenix Uplighting

I was born and raised in Hamburg Germany, grew up in Venice Italy, of course I’m multilingual.

At the early age of 10 I started playing my 45's on a plastic turntable in my grandmothers front yard and quickly it became my passion and later my career. I love music and deejaying, while making everybody get up, SING & DANCE!!!


In my late teens I became an exchange student in Colorado Springs. It was there where I graduated from high school and attended college. I studied TV production, Radio Broadcasting & Foreign Languages.


Then things became serious, I met a girl named Rhonda, my music mentor and love of my life!


How could I not marry her!


I pursued my DJ career and had my breakthrough in London, U.K. where as the resident DJ of Club Limelight I had the honor to share my dj booth with the legendary Paul Oakenfold.


My career really took off in Italy in the early 90's when I started playing music at some of the most beautiful nightclubs right outside the city of Venice. My college broadcasting studies finally paid off as I landed a weekly gig at a local radio station.


In 1994, I moved to Phoenix where I became a mobile DJ specializing in weddings and corporate events.


Knowing the entertainment industry inside and out I recognized the current trend towards ambient lighting and visual entertainment and knew I needed to add these services to my entertainment packages!

Overnight I became the new "Lighting Professor" and from there Phoenix Uplighting was born!


Phoenix Uplighting is committed to providing excellent customer service, by paying attention to detail and making your experience unique and memorable.


Every client works directly with me from the first consultation to the final product. I am honored that my company has been awarded the Wedding Wire Couple's Choice award for 2018 & 2019.
