Setlist: Wedding Darian and Corey Sept. 2018 @The Inn at Vint Hill

BY: 0 Comments Posted on

The Inn at Vint Hill features an enormous Sperry tent where Darian and Corey’s reception was held. The ceremony was held on the grounds, which are lush and beautiful and surrounded by the beautiful Virginia countryside. The Inn is quite charming and offers a lovely walkdown from the second floor to the ceremony below. The staff is friendly and helpful as well.

I met with the couple beforehand out in Harper’s Ferry (lovely town) to discuss the details for their event and to assemble a list of songs to play for the ceremony and the reception. I also visited the venue the day before the event so we could discuss the setup. We ended up with beautiful weather on the day of the event, which was great because the week leading up to the wedding was rainy and overcast. Vint Hill looks really lovely on a sunny day, so we lucked out!

For this event, I provided three sound systems: One for the ceremony, one for the cocktail hour inside the Inn, and one for the reception in the Sperry tent. I provided wireless clip-on mic’s for the officiant and the couple during the ceremony, and a wireless handheld mic for toasts during the reception. I provided a lighting truss over the DJ table set up with several moving lights, some colorful wash lights, and a mirror ball. I set up two moving spots on the floor at the back to project across the tent surface.

Setlist: Wedding Reception Denine and John Sept. 2018 @PJ Skidoos

BY: 0 Comments Posted on

The couple and their families were some of the nicest people I’ve met in this business. I met with them at the venue, PJ Skidoos in Fairfax, several months before the event. We talked about the setup for the room and the songs that were important to them to have included on their wedding day.

PJ Skidoos has a great room downstairs for weddings and special events, and the staff is very courteous and professional. It’s easy to access as well from the entrance on the side of the building.

For this event I brought out two sound systems, one for the ceremony and one for the reception. I provided a wireless clip-on mic for the officiant, and music for the ceremony. I also 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.

Setlist: Wedding Reception Liz and Craig @Hollin Hall July 7, 2018

BY: 0 Comments Posted on

I met Liz and Craig through 80’s Dance Party, the event that I’ve promoted and DJ’d for longer than any other I’ve done (25 years in one form or another, but who’s counting?) They’ve attended 80’s Dance Party events at Black Whiskey, Tropicalia, Songbyrd Cafe, and The Black Cat, so I was thrilled when they asked me to spin at their wedding!

It took place in July of 2018 at Hollin Hall in Alexandria, VA. The venue is amazing, from the outdoor grounds to the hall itself, all very charming. We lucked out, too, as it had rained all week before the wedding but then cleared out just in time!

The music for the ceremony was provided by friends of the couple, who played violin and guitar. Liz and Craig wanted an 80’s themed reception, and that is one of my specialties. I only wish I could have kept playing for another two hours!

For this event, I provided two sound systems, one for the ceremony and another for the reception. Microphones were provided for the live musicians and for the readings during the ceremony. A wireless mic was provided for the officiant and another for toasts at the reception later. I also provided uplighting for the reception hall.

This couple found me via my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DJTheAngel

Waterford Virginia is a lovely little town full of historic buildings, charming old homes, and rustic elegance. It is the site of the annual Waterford Fair, and is also the perfect location for a wedding.

Setlist: Guest DJ Spot at Temptation, State Theatre Falls Church VA Nov. 4 2017

BY: 0 Comments Posted on

I was very honored to be invited to join DJ Melle Mel and DJ Michael Scruggs as a guest DJ for “Temptation” at the State Theatre in Falls Church on November 4, 2017. “Temptation” is a 70’s vs. 80’s Dance night hosted by Melina and Michael as a regular event. The State Theatre went through a big restoration project many years ago and has gone on to be one of NoVa’s best venues for live shows and events! We had a HUGE video projection system behind us, provided by the venue, that let us play music videos from the 80’s. As a guest for the night I was only required to bring my DJ setup, video connections, and my music and video collection.

BY: 0 Comments Posted on

For a couple years running now I have had the honor of being invited to spin the “Dead of Summer” after party held at The Living Room on Vermont Ave in downtown DC. The hosts sought me out for an 80’s vibe for the night, and that IS my specialty. The Living Room is a beautiful space, part of the upscale sector of the DC nightlife scene. The “Dead of Summer” party is held in their back room, and it is a great space. Full bar, sound and lights already in place for us DJ’s, and a lot of style (be sure to check out the neon lit piano.)

Setlist: 80’s Dance Party @Tropicalia Washington DC Jan 21st, 2017

BY: 0 Comments Posted on

This was our final night at Tropicalia, the party has since moved on to Songbyrd in Adams Morgan. It was a stellar send off, though! It also happened to be same day as the Women’s March. Ours was declared one of the official after parties of the march, and we got a lot of people who had participated earlier in the day. AND they were very much ready to relax and have some FUN! There were a couple of non-80’s songs in the set, but it was all in the spirit of inclusion. All in all, the two and a half year run we had at Tropicalia was one of the best periods in the history of the event. It’s a great place!

Princess Tiffany Presents a Genuine Disco Party Oct 22 2016 @DC9

This was a special one off event at DC9, one of my absolute favorite clubs in downtown Washington, DC. The host (Princess Tiffany) sought out a collaboration to present a disco themed dance night at the club. She curated the music selection which, while it did consist of mostly genuine disco hits, did stray into a little 80’s nostalgia and current hits. What can I say? I hate to turn down requests, especially when people are having a good time!

Setlist: 80’s Zombie Prom Halloween Night @The Passenger Oct. 31st, 2013

Click here for more pictures from this event!

I got a huge Thriller of a thrill to be invited to spin The Passenger’s 80’s Zombie Prom on Halloween night in 2013. It took place in the Warehouse Theater space adjacent to The Passenger, and the turnout of costumed party people was AWESOME! I was brought on to provide DJ services, sound system, lighting, and music videos on the projection system. I even set up a balloon drop, which is something I used to do a lot at the old gig. Best of all, the success of the event led directly to the opportunity to spin their New Year’s Eve party two months later!

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:
