July 31 is Talk In An Elevator Day. While in an elevator, it is a great time to meet people as you are both is such a confined space. You can create short conversation by asking the other person if they are from the area or what brought them to the same building.
When looking at the manufacturer of an elevator while transporting in one you will commonly see the name, Otis. The reason for this is the manufacturer us named after the person who was tagged as the person who invented the modern day elevator – Elisha Otis. The Otis Elevator Company is the largest such manufacturer of vertical transport systems. Another common manufacturer of elevators is ThyssenKrupp Elevator.

We cannot talk about Otis elevators without talking about our favorite musician with the name Otis. That’s right, we REALLY like the music of Otis Redding. With songs like These Arms Of Mine and That’s How Strong My Love Is, great wedding R&B First Dance Songs, Otis will remain as a wedding artist for years to come. Probably Otis’ most recognizable hit is (Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 after his death in a plane crash.
Matt loves listening to any music style he can understand the words. He lives in the wedding capital of the world, Las Vegas, with his wife Sharon. Matt's other likes include craft beer, baseball, and traveling.
