Setlist: Wedding Callie and Joel September 8th @Blue Hill Farm, Waterford VA

BY: 0 Comments Posted on

My fondness for Waterford VA is well established, and Blue Hill Farm is one of the nicest wedding venues out that way. The owners are fantastic people who work very hard to make their farm a warm and inviting place for everyone involved. They have both outdoor and indoor spaces for the ceremony, and a big tent on the grounds for dinner. The carriage house is situated in between, and I got a thrill out of helping to light it up with color and movement for the reception!

Callie and Joel brought a great group of very enthusiastic friends who rocked the dance floor and celebrated in style. At the end they did a send off with sparklers ablaze.

For this event I brought out two sound systems, one for dinner in the tent and one for the reception. I provided a wireless handheld mic for toasts during dinner. For dancing, in addition to the sound system I set up a lighting truss over the DJ table with a variety of moving lights and wash lights. I also set up the uplighting system around the perimeter of the room. Finally, I added two vertical trusses with moving spots on top.

This couple found me through my profile on Thumbtack.com: https://www.thumbtack.com/-Alexandria-VA/service/3606001

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!

Setlist: Halloween Party @Ashburn, Virginia Oct 27, 2013

Click for more pictures from this event!

I started spinning the annual Halloween party at the community rec center out in Broadlands in 2008, and was invited back every year while they were still running it. It was typically on the Saturday before Halloween, and it was always a hit! Mostly a mix of 70’s/80’s/90’s pop and hip hop, but plenty of current hits as well. The HOA out there would actually do two parties in a row; Friday night for the kids in the early evening, and then Saturday night for the grown-ups. Both were incredible. I was brought in to provide DJ services, sound system, lighting, music video and movies on my projection system. It was one of the most complete entertainment packages I’ve been asked to do, and it looked and sounded amazing. I still do the kids party every year, as well as several other community events. Here’s the setlist for the 2013 party:
