Wedding DJ - Mobile Music Plus at Scripps Seaside Forum

Kelly and Elaine's wedding at the Scripps Seaside Forum in La Jolla was a blast. I provided an extensive sound system to cover both outside for the Ceremony and inside for the Reception. NRG provided a pianist to play the Ceremony I ran the PA for them to be heard on the lawn during the Ceremony and then used the wireless link to runt eh same music inside to the speaker system as people gathered when we got started. After the Ceremony, guests most moved inside for cocktails and dinner while a few stayed outside. Since the music was now being being played inside we needed to run another wireless link so the music could be held outside so that as guests came outside to enjoy the patio lounge throughout the night the music could still be heard. kool. Party Rentals provided their one of a kind Glow tables, Plush Lounge provided some of the outdoor lounge furniture. San Diego Stage and Lighting provided uplighting and some intel Dancefloor lights. Altogether it was quite a sight all designed and created by Anseth Richards the Event Coordinator from Creative Occasions and The Bridal Bar.

From meeting with Kelly & Elaine prior to the wedding we determined that they wanted to create an atmosphere where guests could dance to some of the classics throughout dinner and then turn the party up a notch after the guests finished dinner.

Wedding DJ at the Hotel Del Coronado

Another Mobile Music Plus - September Wedding that I'm just now getting around to posting about. These guys were a little more on the rock n roll and Country side, but they had a great time and danced a lot. It just goes to show that what you need for a wedding is a DJ that can handle anything and adapt to any theme and mixture of guests to play the right music to get your crowd dancing.

Video DJ Wedding at the Dana

Tim & Ivana were awesome! Super Organized about every detail, yet easy going throughout the night. She wanted their video montage as well as a surprise video presentation by their friends as part of the Grand Entrance. A close friend of theirs' Emceed the Grand Entrance and then I took over from there. The Video Screen was 6' x 8' after the party got started I video DJ'd the dance party wit music videos play a combination of requests and songs I knew would be big with that audience. One of the requests was for "Like a G6" by Far East Movement. That's a fun song and a big song in top 40 right now (October 2010), but when she told me why I was surprised to hear that she wanted me to play the song/music video because her brother was in the Video... He's in the group "Cataracs" hip hop group that collaborated on "Like a G6"
I also provided music for the Ceremony and Cocktail Hour. If you're looking for a prefect wedding location. The Dana on Mission Bay has a ceremony lawn that overlooks the water, the recently remodeled Ballroom and surrounding area is unmatched around San Diego and THE STAFF, is really great at what they do. Keith in the office, Tim & Rob head up the Catering Staff team and I can tell you honestly because I'm behind the scenes a lot and I see everything. They don't miss anything, they are truly one of the best Catering teams around.

Video DJ & Karaoke Wedding and uplighting at Tom Hams Lighthouse

A fun little September wedding reception in the small room at Tom Hams Lighthouse in Point Loma for Joe & Jean. I don't think they thought their family would cut loose, dance and have a good time. That was one of the main reasons they selected Video DJ for the reception so that the guests would be visually entertained even if they didn't dance a lot. As the wedding date got closer, they asked to add Karaoke entertainment since they had some singers in the family. The room was a little crowded with their 60~ guests. The (2) Video Screens, Karaoke lyrics monitor and the (8) LED Uplights along with the dancefloor didn't leave much extra space.

They had several really good singers to start off and then the dancing started...

Video DJ at Loews Coronado

This is a past party that I did and recently got some video footage from. Video DJ for the Employees at Loews Coronado and as usual it didn't disappoint. Video DJ, if you aren't already familiar with it, is: Picture a party with A GREAT DJ, now imagine that party with two video screens where the music comes to life in the form of Music Videos and Rare Concert Footage, some of which are one of a kind and can't be found anywhere except in my music video library. By using these amazing videos I orchestrate a seamless performance that you just have to see to appreciate the range and engaging element that it brings to a party.

Rancho Santa Fe News -

I was recently quoted / featured / talked about a little bit, (depending on how you look at it I suppose) in the the online version of Ah-Ha, The Rancho Santa Fe News by Sabrina Cadini. She's a really talented wedding and Event planner and also the president of the San Diego Chapter of the Association of Bridal Consultants.

She writes...
Think about a party without music… Great food, d├ęcor and people are not enough to set the right atmosphere. Music plays a very important role in any celebration, and here’s how you can create a successful event for your guests... Read More

Rock n Roll Wedding at Orfila Vineyard

Bryan & Teri were a really nice couple that were fantastic to work for. They were pretty easy going, they had some requests but for the most part just gave me some music likes and dislikes and told me to run with it. This is a great wedding to illustrate that every wedding I play is different. The Clip is the last song of the night, which was one of the brides "really like this song" choices. Check it out.

I also provided a PA system with wireless microphones for the Ceremony and music for the Cocktail hour for them too.

Brazilian Wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado

Todd & Gisele's wedding was awesome. Gisele is originally from Brazilian so they brought in a Brazilian band complete with 2 dancers. It was a huge hit and was like Carnival right there in the Coronet Ballroom at the Del. I brought in (2) 42" Video Screens to show their video montage and then video Dj'd with Music Videos after the Brazilian Band finished their short appearance. I even included a few Brazilian Pop Music Videos. Before the night started, I set 8 LED uplights that were set to rotate between blue and violet every 10 minutes throughout the night.
