October 2017 Events Recap

Canyonwood Ridge Wedding – 10/29/17

October is always the busiest month of the year for weddings, and this year was no different! Finished out the final and 7th wedding of October with Raquel and Dan at one of my personal favorite venues in Dripping Springs, Canyonwood Ridge because of their beautiful inside ceremony space pictured above. To summarize the feels of the evening, in the words of Dan, “That dance party was all because of you, wouldn’t have happened without you”. Glad I could bring the dancing fire to a Sunday wedding!


The Allan House Wedding – 10/28/17

I will never forget this specific wedding- it was literally a life changing ceremony. When I initially met with Courtney and Matt, they explained that they were gonna officiate their own wedding (i.e. just exchange vows and rings), as they had already been legally married. I had never even heard of this before in 8 years of DJing weddings, so I was honestly a little skeptical of how it was all gonna play out because the bride and groom are usually nervous the day of, but I love untraditional stuff, so I was happy to oblige. Admittedly a strange sight, Matt walked up to the front – no officiant or wedding party in tow- and thanked the guests for coming, and then motioned to me to being playing Courtney’s processional song.

If you haven’t ever been to a wedding, the officiant usually talks about the couple’s relation, quotes some passages on love, helps the couple recite their vows to one another, helps them exchange ring vows, and then legally pronounces them newly weds. When meeting with them before beginning, they were both visibly nervous and stiff, but as soon as they started talking to each other they completely opened up. Courtney and Matt’s ceremony blew my mind because it was like them speaking from the heart to one another about their history together, why they fell in love, and are still falling in love each day with each other so much that they wanna spend the rest of their lives together. The eloquence and confidence with which both of them spoke and the way you could feel their emotions for one another.  It was such a special ceremony because of its beautiful uniqueness, just like their love – something to envy. So now, thank you to  Courtney and Matt for changing my perspective on wedding ceremonies, officiants, and love. It was an honor to be your DJ!


Agudas Achim Wedding – 10/22/17

Aliza and Jennifer put a lot a trust into me to help pull off their non-traditional, yet traditional Jewish wedding off. They were understandably nervous leading into the wedding, but it was one of those weddings where the family wants to get up and start dancing before dinner is even over. Long story short, it was one of the most fun dance segments at a wedding, even got Granpa Annon guest DJing!


Brodie Homestead Wedding – 10/21/17

Another great example of why to have a professional wedding DJ! When meeting with David and Raisha, they were open to dancing to anything and everything; However, initially their guests weren’t as obliging. Noticing a fair amount of hispanics and using my San Antonio roots, I pulled out one of the best Cumbia/Salsa/Reggaton sets I’ve ever spun and knocked it out of the park for the newly weds. Thanks for trusting in my song selections and allowing me to help make the day perfect!

Stonehouse Vineyard Wedding – 10/19/17

Thursday weddings are super rare, so I was more than happy to DJ for Jeremy and Elizabeth with their small wedding of 50 people. They didn’t expect guests to dance, but still, as a DJ the goal is to pull off the unexpected small dance party. Proud to say the unexpected dance party happened! Thanks for having me and congratulations!


TerrAdorna Wedding – 10/14/17

I was so excited to be the DJ for Albert and Jennifer! As a South Texas DJ, its awesome when you can play the all of the “super 3 wedding dance genre’s”(Classic and new wedding Hits, Country music, and Hispanic music). Favorite part of the day was the special ceremony during the actual ceremony where Albert and Jennifer poured a shot of Tequila (while I softly played Tequila by The Champs of course) as their “unity ceremony”. Definitely gonna be recommending that one in the future!


Hog Heaven Wedding – 10/7/17

Hog Heaven is actually not a public wedding venue, but rather a client of the personal trainers and newlyweds, Gina and Bane! An absolutely gorgeous skeet shooting and sport venue in Dripping Springs, its a shame it isn’t on the market for future weddings. Nonetheless, it was an amazing time and I was blown away by how everyone in attendance made me feel like I needed to go on a diet and hit the gym. Congratulations and thank you for putting your trust in Hype Rhythm.

September 2017: Start of Fall Wedding Season in Austin, Texas!

  

The Austonian Residents Party and 6th Street Video – 9/23/17

Soon to be releasing videos from our two events this past weekend with videography and photography done by Airebourne Entertainment. Stay tuned!


San Antonio Wedding at The Witte Museum – 9/16/17

A majority of the weddings I DJ are in the Austin area, but I’m no stranger to San Antonio, and especially the Witte Museum. The groom, Matt, and I had played soccer together for a few years in high school, and I was honored when Matt and his fiancé, Claire, asked me to be their DJ. The dance floor was packed all night and I couldn’t be more happy for the newlyweds! Review to be posted soon!


Associated Wedding Planners of Austin – 9/12/17

The top wedding vendors in Austin were invited to a secret reveal party for AWPA, or Associated Wedding Planners of Austin. The goal of AWPA is to promote higher wedding industry standards for planners and the unbiased recommendation of other wedding vendors. Looking forward to working with AWPA associates in the future!


San Antonio Wedding at Embassy Suites Riverwalk – 9/2/17

I’ve done close to about 300 weddings now and had never seen this dance floor modification before – its a giant vinyl sticker with the couples monogram printed on top done by Embassy Suites. Knowing how much fun of a dance party they were about to have, I was really excited to take the before and after picture of the dance floor. Needless to say, the party was a blast and I played everything from Country, Hispanic, Top Hits, Throwbacks, and even got to Rick-Roll the groom with help from the bride. Congratulations Jessica and Chris, it was an honor to DJ for you guys, and wishing y’all the best!


Austin Wedding at The Texas Women’s Federation – 9/1/17

To me, this wedding was one of the best reasons why to hire a DJ for your wedding. The bride was looking for a sing-along type dance segment to  unconventional hits from the 60’s-80’s. I took the bride’s playlist and mixed it in with some more well known hits from that time as well to keep the guests on the dance floor all night! Ended with a Freddy Mercury/Michael Jackson/Prince sing along tribute, long story short – PERFECT! Thanks to Jen and Jon for having me help them pull off a great wedding.

June 2017

6/17/17 – Wedding

Another amazing Hype Rhythm Live wedding took place at Ashley and Andrew’s wedding at Dimebox Ballroom. Here is her review posted of our DJ/Drummer entertainment combo on our Facebook. More pictures to be posted as soon as the photographer has them ready! Thank you for having us and glad we could rock your wedding!

Thank you so much Nick Ruiz for making our wedding so awesome!!! I can’t tell you how many of our guests raved about how great y’all were! We have some friends that are booking y’all for their wedding next year! So again, thank you SO much! Y’all were fantastic!


6/10/17 – Wedding

Congratulations to Matt and Tawny! They had a (finally!) beautiful day in June and celebrated it at Texas Old Town‘s Stone Hall. This was one of the most on-time and stress free weddings I’ve ever seen thanks to Michelle with Here To Help! The couple and I met over our love of Halal Bros, who don’t usually cater, but Tawny and Matt weren’t about to take “No” for an answer. Thank you for having me!


6/3/17 – Wedding

For the past three weekends in a row the weather in Texas has been extra Texas. We would go from no rain predicted to flash flood, back to clear skies all within an hour. No matter what, the humidity was always there to remind us that the Texas summer is just beginning!

So needless to say, from the DJs perspective at least, moving the ceremony to the air conditioned inside is cool with me! And it’s even more fortunate when the sky clears up beautifully right after your ceremony, so you are still able to take planned pictures in the Spicewood Vineyards. Congratulations to Brian and Anne, and thank you guys for trusting in me to do what I do!


6/2/17 – Hype Rhythm Live

In the mix at our newest West 6th Street spot, Steampunk Saloon. Even while both us of were sick with a cold, we still brought the Hype on a very humid Friday! We are in the mix again at Steampunk next Friday 6/16 from 11pm-2am!

Had the privilege of DJing for Thursday Therapy Austin at The Thinkery. TT is a “A fun gathering for wedding pros to meet, mingle, share.” I DJed a fun mix of chill, electronica music. Sample of what it sounded like below.

12/17/16 – Wedding

Boom, another wedding of the year candidate out at Camp Lucy. This was one of those weddings that even with 3 hours, the guests were such dancers that we could have easily gone another 3. Congratulations and thank you so much to Stevie and Todd for having me be such a big part of their big day! You can check out Stevie’s 5 star review on The Knot.

12/9/16 – Austin Silent Disco

Back to back days of the Austin Silent Disco, this time at Concrete Cowboy Downtown 6th Street. I couldn’t tell you the name of this corporate party, but I can say that they had a great time. If you haven’t been to a Silent Disco, I highly recommend looking into it. Seriously, these parties are always so much fun!


hype_rhythm_austin_silent_disco_800_congress

12/8/16 – Austin Silent Disco

Thanks to Austin Silent Disco for having me out to DJ a corporate party at 800 Congress. First of all, I have to stress how hard it is to get a good picture of the event while I’m also the DJ, so.. sorry, this here is my attempt. Regardless, DJ Nicky Danger and I had over 150 fashion designers dancing the night away to throw back 80’s, 90’s and today’s music. We even went an hour over the end of the night because it was so much fun. Hope to be back next year!


hype_rhythm_wedding_cedar_bend_events

12/4/16 – Wedding

Congratulations to Grace and Mitch who got married at Cedar Bend Events! The weather was equally challenging as the day before, but Hype Rhythm DJ played the fire that kept the guests dancing and warm. Thanks for having us out and helping y’all pull off a perfect wedding! You can read Mitch’s 5 star review of Hype Rhythm on The Knot!


hype_rhythm_wedding_house_on_the_hill

12/3/16 – Wedding

The cold weather and rain made this day especially tricky at House on the Hill, but Hype Rhythm DJ found a way to make it all work. Even though we had to set up in the dinning room (above) due to the dance floor being outside, we were able to move all of the tables out of the way after dinner and still have a fun 5 hour dance segment! Congratulations to Stephanie and William!


hype_rhythm_corporate_party_four_seasons

12/2/16 – Corporate Party

Thanks to Nancy and The Higginbotham Group for having me out to DJ their annual Holiday corporate party at The Four Seasons Downtown. As always, guests had a great time, and we even were able to get in a “Mannequin Challenge” at the end of the night. It came out pretty good, check it out below! Can’t wait till next year’s!
