Valentine’s Day Weekend Recap

18 Feb

Image Hello again and thanks for stopping by the blog!  Yes, this week was the anticipated/dreaded week of Valentine’s Day.  For some, Valentine’s day is a day to celebrate with a loved one.  If you possess more of a cynical outlook on life, maybe you prefer the premonition that Valentine’s day is some overly hyped commercial holiday designed by conglomerates like Hallmark, jewelers, chocolatiers or even your local florist to cash in.  Well whatever your outlook, I hope you all had a great day.  Hopefully you didn’t over invest in thought, precious hard earned dollars or experienced heartache because of it.  I personally had an eventful weekend.  Please let me tell you about it… Friday, started bright and early for me as I headed over with Stacey Warrings (Jacob & Anthony’s) to Albany Broadcasting Company to appear on 104.9 The Cat.  We were there to promote my Singles Revenge Party with Jake & Dana.  Let me tell you, these two were super welcoming to us and it was a pleasure to see a duo on air have as great of a chemistry as these two did.  We caught up with each other, discussed the party that night at Jacob & Anthony’s Prep Kitchen and even gave away some restaurant gift certificates to some lucky callers.  Thanks Stacey!  In case you’re not familiar, Jake and I go back about a decade.  I remember him being the guest MC at a handful of venues over the past 11 years or so.  As we parted ways, I thanked him for having Stacey and I on air and gave Jake a USB thumbdrive with a country mega mix I made personally for him.  He was surprised yet extremely excited to listen to what I had made for him.  Anyways, the party that night ended up going really well.  It’s always nice to dj for new and different audiences.  By the end of the night I had won them over as everyone was asking when I would be back next!  Here’s a hint: Really soon! Image Saturday night I dj’d my monthly residency at Vapor Night Club.  I have to say Saturday nights crowd was probably up there with some of the best crowds I’ve ever had the pleasure to dj for.  The vibe and energy in the room was great from the start.  Normally, I warm the crowd up a little bit before I kick the tempos up however, I could tell that everyone was ready to go last night.  People are really taking into the whole video djing thing as it offers a little something for everyone.  I brought a handful of my friends out and they all had a blast.  If you haven’t been out on a Saturday night at Vapor, you are truly missing out.  The Sights and Sounds party has some of the best staff in the area, top notch sound and lighting, and great drink specials.  Add all of that up plus the areas best dj talent and you get an amazing product!  I’ll be there March 16th mixing up some more videos.  See you there!

Hello 2013! So things have been moving along and I am proud to say the new website is now live.  Please check it out and book your next big event here: http://www.djplaygroundproductions.com  ImageImage

I am proud of this site but even more so, the product Playground Productions promises to deliver.  Any dj can dj a wedding.  However, not all dj’s are created equal.  Just how all cooks can cook…but not all cooks are chef’s.  Not all dj’s are capable of the same skill set.  Playground Productions is here to set the new gold standard.  Real dj’s with great musical depth.  Dj’s with the ability to scratch and mix when necessary.  Dj’s that know how to create and control the energy in a given room and dance space.  And last but not least Dj’s who know how to MC and run the party without stealing the show.  We are Playground Productions.  We are the Best!
