Leesburg set ablaze . . . Nferno strikes again!

First off, always trust your GPS. Okay, so I got lost going on Route 15 in Leesburg. I saw a sign that said detour Route 15 South, and I got confused, even though my GPS said stay straight. So I ignored the lady's voice and went 15 South. After about 20 minutes, I realized I was in Prince William County. Wait a minute? Leesburg is in Loudoun County. Then it hit me, the GPS said go 15 North, so why am I going south? Fortunately, I always allow myself enough time to leave so I got there with enough time to set up.

First off, it was hot, and playing ceremony music dressed in all black isn't fun. However, the good news was that I was nestled in the shade. The bad news was, I was underneath a swarming hornets nest. Yikes!

The party started off slow. I started off with "Celebration" and then mixed in "Hot Stuff." Only about three people danced. Then I threw on the "Electric Slide," and here is a shocker, only dudes did it. No ladies. That was a first! So, I was getting frustrated. After all, I was on a hot streak. Four banging parties in a row and I wasn't about to cool off tonight. So I threw on Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough" and it was all she wrote. The dance floor stay packed the whole night. However, there were obstacles. The room was hot and the guest spent the majority of their time trying to stay cool. So, I had to throw in a few slow songs to allow them to catch their breath.

Best mixes of the night- "Low," "Boom Boom Pow" and "Baby Got Back." Followed by, "Staying Alive," "Billie Jean," and "Sexyback." Are you kidding me?

Overall, a great night and I got a good tip. The bride even put out a tip jar for me, but either nobody saw it or they were too cheap to donate to the Nferno Foundation. Hey, what can I say. Stay blessed. I gotta a little break this weekend. I'm shooting a wedding down Lusby, MD. Stay blessed!

RIP Mr. Dave Coleman . . . Cherish Your Loved Ones

The death of one of my father's closest friends sent a severe shock wave through my soul. Mr. Dave Coleman pledged with my father(Omega Psi Phi) at Knoxville College in Tennessee and he died this week after a battle with cancer. As I shed a few tears for a man that I grew up knowing and really appreciating, it just let me know that we should cherish our loved ones every single day. As I watch my parents get older, I realize that they too someday will pass on to be with God. I realize that tomorrow isn't promise and we should live each day to the fullest, but I know that there are times when we take our precious life for granted. Its hard to fathom I know, to bury your parents--I mean you remember all of the good times in your childhood and you never expect your parents to grow old and gray. This is probably one of the hardest blogs to write, as I fight back tears, so I challenge each of you that read this, to please cherish your loved ones while they are living. Never take this precious time that God has given us for granted. Stay blessed!

Nferno sets the state capital on FIRE!

On May 30th, DJ Nferno invaded Annapolis and set the dance floor on fire at the Annapolis Cove Marina. This was a beautiful day for an outside reception on the water. There was a lot of energy from the very beginning. The Bridal Party was young, spunky, and wanted to dance their butts off . . . as was evident with their choice of intro music . . . Rock and Roll Part 2. From there, it went up hill. The ladies of Delta Gamma represented to the fullest especially when I cranked "Sweet Home Alabama" and replaced Alabama with Delta Gamma. I must say, this was one of the best events I did. Nobody left the dance floor.
