"I'm running the business full-time, and my wife and I are raising our daughter, and she's pregnant," he said, about his latest endeavors. "Sarz Entertainment has been going excellent. It's not a giant operation. It's very boutique style, and it pays high attention to detail, and the equipment that we bring out is top of the line. When it comes to a day, like somebody's wedding day, it is not a regular party. We give each wedding individual attention, and we really build a custom setting for each individual client that we get."
Sarysz talks about the digital transformation of the music industry
On the digital transformation of the music business, Sarysz said, "Music has its pros and its cons. Technology has changed the music industry in some good ways and some bad ways. I no longer look forward to a new album, when an artist comes out with an LP. We used to look forward to that, and we would go to the store and we would listen to it on our CD player. Those days are gone, and technology has a lot to do with that. Also, on the positive side, I can pick and choose which tracks I like, and I can get remixes of the tracks. Now, you can really hand select the type of music and mix that you want to play, compared to having stocks and stocks of albums taking up all this space, and playing certain songs from those albums."

Regarding his use of technology as a DJ, emcee and lighting specialist, Sarysz has found Instagram very beneficial to him. "Instagram has been a huge help! I find that you can post, take a photo and show people right now what is happening at this moment, and then have a built library showcasing highlights of my work. When I go and meet with people, I can open that app and show that to people. I can run a meeting from my phone, and I can even do a contract and have it signed with an app on my phone. It's unbelievable."
Sarysz continued, "Facebook Live is a whole other element. You're in the moment and you want to share it with the world right now. I've done that a few times, and people love tuning in and watch what is going on, and commenting on it."
Back in 2008, Sarysz appeared on the NBC reality television show Momma's Boys. "That feels like a really long time ago," he admitted.
