Wait…it’s August already?!?!?!?!?

5 Aug

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!

The weekend re-cap

2 Jul

So this weekend was an eventful one. On Friday I dj’d a private graduation party for a family who has treated me very well over the years. Out of respect for their privacy, I’ll just say they are a well known family in the area. So, let me tell you about this party…It was truly incredible. First off, the dance floor hovered over the pool. Tents were everywhere to shelter us from this ever so chaotic weather (if you live in the greater capital region and have been in town the last few weeks, you understand where I’m coming from). Food and catering was provided by Mazzone. The staff was top notch and as always were very professional and accommodating. This party had it all…Open bar with top shelf everything you can imagine. There were specially setup stations that served fresh beef and chicken sliders,fresh cut fries,homemade milk shakes and even a brick oven baked pizza station! Now this is the way to get your snack on while you party. Shout out to my long time friend Frank Deluca (Glen Sanders Mansion) for making sure everything was running smooth and even finding the time to run some sliders over to the dj booth. All night, guests were dancing over the pool, eating and drinking till the early hours. Oh and let’s not forget music and lights by yours truly. Check out the “wonderful” iphone pictures below.

Saturday night, I dj’d the Capasso/Feuerstein reception at the Vista (Van Patten golf club) in Clifton Park, NY. Alicia and Randy are a lovely couple and it was a treat to meet all of their family and friends. For their wedding I brought the works. The powered speakers and subs, lasers, scanners and of course, plenty of led lighting. Needless to say the beautiful Vista turned into an all out light show and party when the sun went down. What made this wedding different from the others was that between Randy and Alicia, there were a lot of family members that were musicians. They had asked if they would be able to play a few sets throughout the night. Of course I happily obliged. This was definitely not a problem as I have had a lot of experience managing stages as the resident dj for shows at Upstate Concert Hall. The greatest surprise was when Alicia’s fathers band the “Time Capsules” played. These guys really tore the house down. At one point, even the groom Randy joined the band and sang a song! Everyone was ecstatic! If your looking for a band to play your next event or party, I highly recommend these guys. As the night progressed, so did the partying and dancing. At one point I was running out between songs handing out what seemed like many hundreds of glow sticks, bracelets, wands etc. I knew the kids, twenty year olds and thirty somethings all love the glow stick paraphernalia but to my surprise the entire room really took to it. Especially the older guests! This reception was such a blast to dj and I’m not sure who had more fun the guests or myself! For now these crummy iPhone pics will have to suffice. Look forward to the update with photography from Rob Spring and videography from Tigress Eye Productions.
