6/30/16 Canyon View Event Center Open House

Had a good time spinning tunes at Canyon View Event Center, one of the newest spaces in town. When I walked in the first thing I said was “This place would be perfect for holiday parties and mitzvahs!” With a parking garage built right underneath, and a quick elevator ride to the top, its large party friendly, and also featuring a beautiful spacious view of the Austin hill country. Check it out if you’re in the hunt for a venue.

6/25/16 Old Folks Wedding

Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s never too late to fall in love! Pictured above is Syd and Chuck, both in their late 70’s. Along with Love Joy Events, Crave Catering, Disch Events, and Rachel Hall Photography, we helped pull off the most stress free and perfect wedding anyone could ask for. Per request of the bride, some of the best music from the 60’s and 70’s were mixed together by DJ Nick @ Night all night. If you read this, thanks again Syd and Chuck.

6/10/16 – Wedding

Ventured down from Austin to Helotes, Texas to the Gardens at Old Town for this beautiful couple, Kelly and Jordan. Even though the humidity was insane, the music was on point at getting people up on the dance floor all night. Gotta give them a lot of love as they booked with me about a year ago before I had even started Hype Rhythm! Thanks for trusting in me and glad I could help make your reception unforgettable!

June and July Jams

7/31/16-Mix Day

Threw together some of my favorite chill listening tracks. This mix would go great during dinner or brunch!


7/29/16 – Mix Day

Finally have a wedding sample mix up on Soundcloud for anyone curious to the style of how we select and mix songs together. We mix all songs, genres, and styles of music together live at your party, all while reading the crowd and using our expertice to keep the dance floor packed from start to finish.

May Events!

5/28/16 Wedding

Another success! Congrats to Norma and Kevin! Norma let me know when we first met that her main goal was to dance all night. Even though the humidity from this past week tried to hold us back, the music was undeniably on point and we danced the night away! Special thanks to TerraDorna for allowing us to bring our own sound system and also sharing their own to rock the party!

Having Nick as our wedding DJ was one of the best decisions we made for our special day. Not only did we love his body of work, but all of our guests were commenting about how much they enjoyed Nick’s music selection. He was punctual, professional, and truly gifted at what he does. Not only was Nick’s song selection constantly on point, but he served as emcee, and he absolutely killed it!! It’s one thing to have someone who knows how to keep a crowd dancing, but it’s another to have someone who understands how to help facilitate a wedding reception so it doesn’t drag, and to rock the transitions from one portion of the ceremony to the next. Nick embodies someone who can not only play the perfect song at the perfect time, but can emcee the pants off of everyone in the room. Thank you Nick for being part of our special day!!

5/22/16 Austin Wedding Expo

We had a great time at the Austin Wedding Expo at the Palmer Convention Center! We also had the best luck not only to be placed next to the bar, but also to have awesome vendors around us who loved the music we played. The day ended in a dance off between a few of the vendors and DJ Nick @ Night. Sad to say Nick lost the dance off, but he left it all out there on the dance floor. Never will forget the MC Hammer dance off 2016.

5/21/16 Wedding

Had an amazing time sharing the day with Mitchell and Anna at Embassy Suites in San Marcos. Trying to take more videos in addition to pictures. Remember folks, we are DJs, not videographers, so we apologize for the shaky iPhone video compilation. However, took a few highlights of the night to showcase the nonstop fun we had! Thank you for trusting Hype Rhythm and DJ Nick @ Night!

I told Nick at the beginning of wedding planning that I wanted the reception to be memorable….and it truly was! There are still people making comments about how energized and fun Nick was. Nick kept everyone on the dance floor from 7:30-10:30 which was pretty incredible. He was extremely personable and even arrived a couple hours before so that he could make sure everything was perfect. He thought of things during the reception that I never would have. There are endless great things to say about Nick. I would 110% recommend him to anyone who wants their reception to be tons of FUN!

5/20/16 Wedding

Congrats to Mr and Mrs Stephen and Lew Westberg! Before the party started, DJ Alchemist Prime snapped this panorama of the venue in San Marcos. Guests had such a good time that they invited him to the after party! Excited to be doing our first gigs in San Marcos as Hype Rhythm DJ!

Absolutely Amazing April

Zilker Park Clubhouse Wedding

4/29/16 Wedding

Congratulations to Patrick and Jonna! A week before, the weather predicted rain and clouds all day. Good fortune was with the couple as they not only had a beautiful day in Austin, Texas, but also an amazing view at Zilker Park Clubhouse. Thanks for trusting Hype Rhythm to rock your wedding from start to finish!

4/23/16 – 50th Birthday Celebration

When Joe reached out to Hype Rhythm for his 50th birthday celebration at Palazzo Lavaca, he originally said something to the effect that he didn’t expect there to be dancing as he was mostly looking for background/lounge music… Well little did he know that Hype Rhythm ALWAYS brings the party. The dance floor was PACKED from the start to finish. Everyone had such a good time that we wish Joe had a party every weekend! Congrats on the life milestone!

Nick,

Thank you for your great work on Saturday night! We loved it, as did the crowd. Many people asked us about you and some wanted your contact info.  We will be sure to spread the good word.
Thanks again and well done!
Regards,
Joe

4/16/16 – Bat Mitzvah

“We hired Hype Rhythm recently for our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah and could not have been happier. From start to finish Nick’s service was impeccable and responsive. He is high energy, respectful of tradition, and seems to love what he does. Most importantly, he had the kids and adults dancing up a storm.”

4/3/16 Debutante Ball

Hype Rhythm put on a masterpiece of a show at Cristina’s Debutante Ball. Because it was a Sunday, the family felt that guests might leave early, but as always with Hype Rhythm DJ, we kept the dance floor popping and shaking till the very end. Not only did we MC and DJ the entire event, but (as shown above) Hype Rhythm also put on a beginners class for basic salsa and cumbia steps and partner turns! The turnout on the dance floor and the positive feedback from start to finish was amazing! Glad we could help orchestrate and pull off such an elegant and unforgettable event for such an welcoming and loving family!

4/1/16 – Wedding

Showing off our amazing system set up at Boulder Springs Event Center. Our speakers are not only unobtrusive to the beauty of the venue and wedding decor, but also produce the highest quality sound offered on the market!

“I just love Nick, I got to work with him at a wedding I shot and when I heard him I was very much impressed. He wasn’t your typical DJ playing the same boring songs or just hit play on his play list, he felt out the crowd he saw how they responded to songs and let me tell you that dance floor was PACKED the whole night… So when it was time to plan my own wedding I couldn’t think of anyone else I would want to play at mine. He stayed in contact with me the months and weeks leading to the wedding to finalize all details and really make sure all was going well. I can not tell you how many people said that they LOVED his music. He was fantastic we LOVE him, and I send him to all my brides 🙂 Oh and did I mention he got out on the dance floor to get everyone going.”

March into the wedding season

IMG_3283

We’re so excited to be kicking off wedding season this month with this unforgettable wedding at Nature’s Point on Lake Travis, Lago Vista TX. Nature’s Point is one of the top three beautiful views and venues in Austin; Unfortunately however, the venue is scheduled to close and be put up for sale come June. We’re gonna miss working alongside the wonderful staff/coordinators as well as beautiful views of Lake Travis.

For the ceremony, we provided crystal clear sound by placing a lapel microphone only on the officiant (which also perfectly picked up the bride and groom as well during their vows) and using a low profile sound system that remains hidden from pictures but still provides a quality and professional sound which all guests were able to hear. Make sure that if you have over 50 guests at your wedding that you use amplification so that people in the front or back, young or old can actually hear your bride, groom, and officiant during the ceremony and vows!

Good morning Nick! I just wanted to thank you for a very special night! Everyone loved the music, you are an awesome DJ which I’m sure you knew that already! You have a gift and I thank you very much for making my baby girls night an amazing night an unforgettable night!

Elizabeth
