What.a.weekend!!!! As most of you know, I was extremely busy this past weekend DJ’ing 2 events (Saturday & Sunday). I’ll give you a mini recap of the events, as well as include some pictures for your viewing pleasure 🙂 As I’ve said many times before, this blog is not only a way for me to share my music with you (my fans), but also a place for me to talk about my many experiences DJ’ing in Los Angeles!
Saturday May 22 I DJ’d a Fresh Prince of Bel Air party in the hills hosted by my friend Jason Ramin. What a party! It definitely brought back memories of the 90’s with MC Hammer outfits all the way to Carlton look alikes from the tv show (oh & of course the Fruit by the Foot on each of the tables)! The freezing 50 degree weather definitely did not stop this crowd from dancing until 2:30 in the morning! The great part of the night for me was that I was able to play 90’s music, hip-hop, and of course my favorite… house. Going from MC Hammer Can’t Touch This to David Guetta, LMFAO, Fergie – Gettin’ Over back to Jump On It was a very easy crowd pleaser! To my surprise I received a ton of requests for more house…Deadmau5, Laidback Luke, etc., which surprised me! (I had some die hard house lovers). I think the hit of the night was the Fresh Prince of Bel Air remix I played oh and of course Tom Jones – It’s Not Unusual. Overall, the night was a fabulous success… yes I can say that because I danced the ENTIRE time behind the DJ booth and in front of it!
Sunday May 23, I DJ’d the Summer Nights Dinner Cruise fundraiser event in Newport Beach. What a beautiful yacht! With an intimate crowd, the night started off extremely relaxing. I played a lot of my lounge music during dinner and cocktails. As the night started to spruce up, I got the crowd dancing with… of course… salsa music. (because seriously, if that doesn’t get you up, nothing will). Mr. Elvis Crespo’s Suavamente, Carlos Vives’ Fruta Fresca, & the one and only Celia Cruz’s La Vida Es Un Carnaval were definitely the hits of the evening. Even though it was windy and pretty chilly on board, (not much of a “summer” experience) the beautiful ocean & sunset views paired with the music definitely was a Sunday Funday to be had!
**I wanted to thank my wonderful sister Deniz for accompanying me to all my events (not just this weekend) & helping me set up/break down all my equipment! She is truly an aSISta’lish 🙂 Thank you!
