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.
Where does the time go?…time flies (insert every other cliche saying about time…… here). Well, here’s what I’ve been up to since the last: djing, djing and more djing. Wait, I also split my finger playing softball. In short, it happened while making a diving catch in the outfield. In the end, I needed 6 stitches. The important part is I caught the ball right? Anyways, this was an eventful week as I was djing Club Mine on Thursday, a Sweet 16 on Saturday afternoon and the Sights and Sounds party at Vapor Night Club with Deejay Element at night.
Club Mine reached out to me and wanted to include me in their 1-2-3 promotional lineup for the summer. As you may already know, Saratoga is a popular destination come this time of year thanks to the race track. This month, I will be kicking the weekends off djing at Club Mine on Thursday nights. Friday nights is Latin night with Dj Frankie Ramos and Saturday night Jamz 96.3’s own Dj Iroc is djing. Before this Thursday, I have never been to Club Mine. To my surprise, Club Mine looks amazing inside. The staff was super welcoming and the crowd was very friendly and receptive to just about anything I played. Many of the patrons paid visits to the dj booth to compliment the music! I’m super excited to dj an open format club where anything goes. If you are out and about on a Thursday night, stop by. Don’t take my word for it…definitely come see for yourself!
Saturday afternoon I dj’d a Sweet 16. However, this was no ordinary sweet 16. This party had the works. It was located on a beautiful backyard with an amazing in-ground pool and hot tub. The outdoor kitchen was something you could only dream of….in an indoor kitchen! The pool house was…you get the idea! The party started off slow as the kids were slow to warm up. Remember guys, this is a sweet 16. Boys stayed in one area while the girls congregated in another. It was only a matter of time before these kids were up dancing together all around the pool…Vegas style!. The party had the works. A great backyard, catering, me djing, oh did I mention a helicopter? Yes, the kids were taking turns riding a helicopter. I didn’t get a chance to take a ride (not that I trust those things lol), but supposedly they were flying to SPAC while the Lil Wayne concert was going on. All in all, it was a night to remember and these kids definitely had a blast!
I closed out the weekend djing with my long time friend Deejay Element at Vapor for the Sights and Sounds party. Deejay Element and I have been friends for over 15 years and it’s always a lot of fun to dj with him. Check out the pic below I took of the monitor behind the sound and lighting booth. Jamz 96.3’s own j-Will hosted the night and kept the crowd involved and engaged the whole night. Element and I went hour for hour and we kept the crowd rocking. If you haven’t been to a Sights and Sounds party you are truly missing out. I’ll be there this Saturday August 10th mixing up the videos. We hope to see you there!
