Donell and Dave Wedding!

Yesterday we performed the music for Dave and Donell! They had a beautiful event at a huge farm house and we split the music duties with a blues band. The family cooked lots of crawfish, and a great time was had by all! We kept the music light and upbeat and played music all over […]

Cinco De Mayo 2011

We performed the entertainment for El Toro Mexican restaurant this year on Cinco De Mayo. The event took place outside at their beautiful Baytown location.

Got uplights?

Public Cruise

Leslie and John

Leslie and John had a beatiful wedding at the historic Magnolia ballroom (build in 1894) in Downtown Houston. We couldn’t have asked for a better evening all around because I believe every guest in the room had a fantastic time. We played a good variety of music because we had a very diverse crowd on […]

Houston DJ

A typical Houston DJ must have a vast skill set to perform the wide range of music required. As I mention regularly when talking with brides, it requires a special kind of DJ for a wedding as opposed to a club, school, or other types. You must be able to accommodate old, new, fast, slow, […]

Wrong song!

Even the greatest DJ’s in the world will occasionally play a song that empties a packed dancefloor when performing for a small crowd. When this happens I almost immediately fade out of that song within 30 seconds as opposed to letting the song keep playing and sucking the life out of my party! Never, however, […]

We will typically play a variety of upbeat music depending on the desired results.Some parties are laid back and more background music, while others are more of a wild party! We find that apartment complexes […]

DJ Equipment

All DJ’s have personal preferences for DJ gear so I will tell you mine and why. 95% of the parties I DJ have between 25-200 people. In years past I used a truck to carry a huge set-up with large bass boxes and extensive lightshows. Now I carry all of my equipment in my 4- […]
