Linganore Winecellars . . . A Blast!! 7/11/2009

You know you are a good DJ when people come up to you after an event and say the following, "I wish you were the DJ at my wedding, because our DJ sucked!" If you ever hear those words, you know you are doing your job. This was one of the nicest couples I have ever worked for. From start to finish Hope and Phil took care of me and made sure I had everything. The Linganore Winery was a very nice place. Way out in Mount Airy, MD is a nice place to take someone special. This place offers wine tasting, a wine tour and you can even have a picnic out there on the grass. An ideal spot to earn some brownie points with the misses.

Back to the party, the bride wanted a lively event, so I gave it to them for four hours. I played a variety of music, country, 80s, Motown, Hip Hop, Top 40, 70s. No matter the music the crowd appreciated it. The best part of the night, the groom asked me to get all of the firemen (Phil is a Montgomery County Firefighter) on the dance floor and embarass them. So I did. I called them up and told them that we had a plaque or some award to give them for their dedication and hard work for Montgomery County. What happened next is priceless . . . I played the YMCA and made them do it. How cheesy is that? But you know what, the groom loved it and everybody had a great time.

Hey, if you are looking for a DJ that knows how to entertain, look no further. Call today!! Stay blessed.

Graduation Party . . . Pylesville, MD 6/27/09

Okay, I gotta give a big shot out to Carmen and his family for being such gracious host at his home in Pylesville, MD which is about 45 minutes north of Baltimore. Grant it, it was about a 90 minute drive from Southern MD, but it was worth it. My job was simple, just play music ranging from Frank Sinatra to 50 Cent. Mission Accomplished!!

Carmen's house was laid out. The landscaping was immaculate and his house sat on about 6 acres of land. But what got me was the red Ferrari in his detached garage. I never saw one up close before, let alone touched one. It was cool. Overall, another satisfied customer. Stay blessed!

Fox Chase Manor . . . 6/26/09

Another satisfied customer courtesy of the Madd Scientist. First off, with the death of Michael Jackson, I just had to honor him that night. How did I do that? Simple, the first song I played for dinner was "Remember The Time," and the last song of the evening was "Beat It." It gets no better than that. During "Beat It," everybody took turns sliding across the floor. Even the bride in that pretty wedding dress of hers took off running and did the coolest slide across the dance floor on her knees.

Overall, the party was jumping. Things started off slowly, but what separates a good DJ from a bad DJ is the ability to adapt to the crowd, feel what they want to hear, and get them going. I guess that is what makes me successful. I don't panic when I play a few good party tunes and the dance floor is empty. Rather, I dig deep in the mental Rolodex and pull out something that will get them going. Once I got them on the dance floor, the party was on fire after that and they never left. Sometimes I get carried away, and I have to give the crowd a breather, hence I throw in a few slow songs from time to time. However, if it was up to me, we would burn the dance floor up. Stay blessed!
