Birthday Party Private Residence Dec 1 2018

BY: 0 Comments Posted on

The birthday girl and her husband invited me to come out to play some music for her and her friends to celebrate her special day. She sent me an extensive playlist ahead of time that included a great cross section of 90’s pop and club tunes. She also had a number of Arabic selections, and assisted me in adding these songs to the library of music for the night. They hosted the party at their very upscale residence in Oakton, VA, and set up their living room as the place for music and dancing. I brought along two compact lighting trusses to add some excitement, and the glow of the uplights looked really spectacular on the vaulted ceinging above. I also provided a sound system for the event. Everything was designed to be very compact and mobile for easy setup and teardown, which worked out really well!

This couple found me through my profile on Thumbtack.com: https://www.thumbtack.com/-Alexandria-VA/service/3606001
They left me a great review, too!

Setlist: Caroline’s 75th Birthday Sock Hop @Waxhaw, NC March 11, 2017

BY: 0 Comments Posted on

I travelled down to Waxhaw NC to help celebrate the 75th Birthday of the mother of one of my best friends. The theme was a 1950’s style sock hop, and the music was centered around that era. I was brought in to provide DJ services, sound system, uplighting, and video projection. We put together a wonderful slideshow for the guests that showed a retrospective of Caroline’s life and family. In addition to all the great music, I also hosted a ‘Name That Tune” contest, and helped engineer a balloon drop. It was a tremendous celebration and I was honored to be a part of it!
