Corporate Show with Karaoke at The Grove of Anaheim

This show was so much fun! An American Idol spin with the guests singing Karaoke, ok so far no big deal, I've been doing parties like that since the Kelly Clarkson days of Idol. This show was different, it was on the main stage at The Grove of Anaheim. A 1500 seat theatre adjacent to Angel Stadium in Anaheim that is complete with a full stage, Pro Sound array and full stage lighting rig. This stage has seen an amazing list of performers, Los Lonely Boys, 3OH!3, Sinbad the Comedian, Jordin Sparks the Go-go's, Snoop Dogg and Three Dog Night. I only missed Willie Nelson and Jefferson Starship by a few days.
There were only about 800 people in the group but seating for Dinner service made the room look full. The doors opened at 7 and the show began at 8 with me as the Emcee introducing Paula and Simon. Well, not the real Paula or Simon, but two look alikes from Hollywood that were excellent at the delivery. Our Paula was a little Ditzy and liked almost everyone, while our Simon was true to form and a little rough on some of the singing groups and I got to play Ryan for the evening. The Karaoke was a HUGE hit we had more singers than we had time to get them on stage.
I love playing real music venues and walking in the same halls and sitting the same dressing room as amazing artists like Al Green. I just have to hire someone to come get me just before the show and say "They're ready for you on stage Mr Bezy."

Dj & Dancing - Wedding at The Lodge at Torrey Pines

I recently DJ'd a really fun wedding at the Lodge, in the Ballroom overlooking the 18th green of Torrey Pines South Golf Course. Uplighting and a wonderful dinner really set the tone for the party. Dinner took awhile to serve all of the courses so when it finished the guests were ready to dance.

The Lodge at Torrey Pines always makes me feel like I'm in a secluded 5 Star resort, which I guess it sort of is. But its so quiet around the grounds, even when the golfers are next door at the course. Inside it's a very luxurious look and feel, everything from the beautiful wood accented walls to the top of the line service by their staff.

DJ - Wedding at Villa Amore

A great wedding for some long time clients and friends that I've known for years. The Villa Amore is an estate in Temecula tucked in amongst the vineyards. The grounds of the Estate are really beautiful and a perfect setting for a wedding ceremony. The Ceremony and Dinner were in the courtyard and the dancing was on the outdoor patio on the opposite side of the property to help contain the noise for the surrounding properties.
