Monday morning I dj’d the traffic jam segment (6:50, 7:50, 8:50) of the J-Will Jamboree morning show. For those of you who don’t know, J-Will and I work together at Vapor Night Club twice a month. He’s the emcee, I’m the dj (<—-see what I did there? hint: Jazzy Jeff reference, please look it up!) Whenever J-Will and I rocked Vapor, the chemistry was undeniable and so…the inevitable collaboration occured. Check out J-Will’s soundcloud for the audio clip of Mondays traffic jam: https://soundcloud.com/jamz-96-3/dj-playground-on-the-j-will. Djing at 6 am was a new experience for me. For 12 years, I dj’d nightclubs and would often times get home at 5 am. That day I left my house at 5:15 am while the sun was peaking it’s pretty little head. These days, times have certainly changed and I’m loving it. J-Will and I had a great show that morning with some very entertaining conversation. He truly is a genius at what he does! Big shout out to Thaddeus (J-Will’s intern) as well. Thaddeus had the inside scoop on all the latest news regarding Drake’s new album leak. I mean, he even had it down to the exact time that it leaked! Thaddeus, It was a pleasure meeting you. You have a bright future my friend. Many thanks to everyone who tuned in Monday morning. Stay tuned for many more shows to come!
Here’s some instagram video!
This past weekend I had the pleasure to dj back to back wedding receptions. I kicked off the weekend by djing my friends Dan Marcy (wearing the ultra suave bow tie in the above pic) and Kari Jelenic’s reception. They had their special day at the Club at Windham Mountain. The place was absolutley stunning with a warm rustic ski lodge vibe. It was a pleasure to be a part of Dan and Kari’s big day. Both of their families were absolute gems and were very accommodating to me. These folks sure showed up to party! Dan and Kari, if you are reading this…Thank you for having me and I wish both of you the best of luck in Atlanta!
Saturday I had the pleasure to dj Laura and Denise’s reception. They had their reception at the Silver Bay Resort in Silver Bay, NY. This really was a special wedding reception for it was a small and intimate gathering. One thing I distinctly noticed was how you could really feel the love in air and visibly see the glow on all of the guests faces. I was told by the Ginny (the wedding planner) of Wedding Planing Plus that Laura and Denise were very specific as to the volume of the music and to not anticipate much dancing. Well, I kept the music at the volume as per requested however to my surprise, the guests flocked to the dance area and stayed there all night long! A great time was definitely had by all!
Ps- Take a look at picture below to see how beautiful the room looked.
This past weekend I dj’d a beautiful reception for Andrew and Jennie. If either of you two are reading this, congratulations! It was truly a pleasure to dj your reception. Albany Country Club was so beautiful and although the weather was hot, the reception stayed cool! Many thanks to Shannon Whitney from Wedding Planning Plus for the making sure everything went super smooth. Shannon has a zen like calmness amongst what can be a very hectic day of planning. What’s her secret? If I told you, well…you know. Be sure to call her to organize your next event folks! The staff at Albany Country Club were very warm and inviting. Half of the business cards I had passed out for the night were requested from the staff! Thanks for the delicious salmon dinner and that wicked concoction of a chocolate milk iced coffee! I’d also like to thank Kevin DeMassio Photography for showing me that vendors really do go above and beyond what they are asked to do. Kevin is so serious about his craft! I can’t wait to see these photos. Shannon, Kevin and his assistant Ben and I had our vendor meals together. It was nice to sit down with them and chat “industry” but the real kicker was when we started talking about our dogs! Kevin, remember to “claim” the stimulus from your bulldog! (Ceasar Milan voice) lol. For now, here’s a shot of the uplighting from my iphone. I’ll be sure to update this post with some official shots.
Here’s a look at the new logo. Please let us know what you think!
On that note, I want to say farewell summer. You were amazing and I’m sad you have to go. However, I’ve got some killer fall clothes I’m excited to wear. See you guys next post!
