Setlist: Wedding Ceremony and Reception Tinsley and Alex @Baltimore Museum of Industry, Baltimore MD

BY: 0 Comments Posted on

Tinsley and Alex chose the Baltimore Museum of Industry as the location for both their wedding ceremony and their reception, and it’s a great choice.

 

 

The main windows of the museum look out over the Baltimore harbor, which gave their ceremony a beautiful backdrop and lots of natural light. Later, during the reception, the harbor lights accented the night sky in the background as everyone kicked up their heels in celebration. I provided DJ services, Emcee services, two sound systems (one for the ceremony and reception, a second one set up further back in the facility for the happy hour), microphones (clip-on lavalier for the officiator, and a handheld wireless for announcements and toasts), and an uplighting package for the dance floor.

 

 

It was great working with the couple, who had lots of great ideas for the music they wanted to hear, as well as fun stuff like the shoe game that took place after the cake cutting. It was also GREAT to work with their wedding planners, Howerton+Wooten Events. Since I have been involved in providing services for weddings, I’ve noticed that events that use the services of a wedding planner tend to go a lot smoother. The couple is more relaxed, family members can concentrate on just having a good time, and the planners make sure that the schedule of events is maintained and updated. This was definitely the case with Howerton+Wooten, who provided some of the most professional, organized, and personally engaged coordinators that I have seen at a wedding event. They have a website, a page up on Facebook, and a page on The Knot. Definitely worth checking out!

Setlist: “Studio 54” Metro Underground Spring Formal 2018 April 7 2018 @Stanton & Greene

BY: 0 Comments Posted on

The legendary nightclub Studio 54 was the theme for The Metro Underground’s 2018 Spring Formal, and I was very pleased to be part of the DJ line-up this year (along with DJ Rick Furr and DJ RineSin). Lots of people (myself included) embraced the theme and came out sporting some flashy 70’s threads. Lots of gold lamé, bellbottoms, and platform shoes. It was a great party and a great opportunity to bust out some Disco classics! I was also able to debut an original mash-up of Donna Summer’s “Hot Stuff” and Kiss’ “I Was Made For Lovin’ You.” This work was entirely prompted and inspired by Miss Hellcat and her observation that the central riff in both songs has a similar vibe. Good call!
