Back a few months (5/27/17) ago I did a wedding out at The Addison Grove for Kelsey and Donnie. The amazing folks at Agave Creative put together this awesome video which perfectly captured the feels and fun of the day. This was one of my personal favorite weddings I’ve done and am so glad there is video to look back on!


8/19/17 – Wedding

Hands down I have to say that as a DJ, Brazos Hall is my favorite venue in Austin!! With the ability for the DJ to directly plug into their 100+ overhead speaker system (w/ direct control over upstairs and downstairs, wow!) plus my own speaker system, it was the most pleasant listening experience you can get at a venue. Love working here and thank you to Tayler and Alex for having me as their DJ! This was non stop party and I was so glad to be a big part of that! Congrats!


8/16/17 – A Taste of NACE

NACE, or The National Association for Catering and Events, is one of the top event professional organizations in Austin, and also an early supporter of Hype Rhythm when we first started out. They invited Hype Rhythm to DJ and a few of Austin’s best caterers to showcase some of their best hors d’oeuvres at Trinity Hall. Needless to say I can attest, it was some of Austin’s best hands down!

This event was a fundraiser for AWADE, which to learn more about, just check out this amazing recap video that Bonnie Newman Creative did! Special appearances by Hype Rhythm providing tunes during the tasting!


8/11/17 – Wedding

Bobby and Alisha had a beautiful wedding at Villa St. Clair. Bobby is from Houston, so of course we had to throw in some H-Town rap classics in the mix. Gotta say though my favorite part was them being announced into the reception with “Congratulations by Post Malone”. Congrats and thanks for trusting in Hype Rhythm!

July 2017

7/8/17 – Wedding

Blessed to have a family who supports my passion, and especially to my cousin who had me out to DJ his Saturday brunch wedding at the South Congress Hotel. This wedding was another amazing affair put together and coordinated by Michelle with Here to Help! I love brunch weddings, and especially having our family there to dance and have a good time made it unforgettable. Congratulations Mitch and Sarah!


7/3/17 – Wedding

Had a great time DJing for these two Baylor graduates, Emily and Adam, who got married out at Texas Old Town‘s Sage Hall the day before July the 4th (smart!). Guests had such a fun time dancing that we got too lit and ended up breaking the AC. Even though hot, we played it cool and still had a great time on the dance floor. Congratulations!


7/1/17 -Wedding

Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of this wedding, but still wanted to post a big thank you to Jeremiah and Dee for having me there to DJ/Host/Coordinate their wedding. Dee suffers from a fear of public speaking and didn’t think she was gonna be able to make it through saying her vows. When it finally got to her vows, she began to break down and it looked like they were gonna have to be skipped, but instead of crying she overcame her fear and – seriously – said some of the most beautiful, heartfelt vows I have ever heard in 250+ weddings. Was really special to witness something so passionate like that, so thank you guys for having me!

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!

March Madness

3/25/17 – First Hype Rhythm Live Wedding

Congratulations and thank you so much to Yvette and Jorge of Vintage Photography Fine Art for having us down to San Benito, Texas to help celebrate their wedding at Rancho La Pergola. We were so excited for this one, as this was our first official wedding with the new DJ/Drummer concept. Needless to say, it was amazing! In the words of the groom “We wish he coulda been in the middle of the dance floor, our guests loved it!” Thank you so much once again for trusting us to premier our new concept at yall’s wedding. Looking forward to 2017 and changing up the wedding entertainment game!!!


Hype Rhythm @ SXSW 2017

Leading into the week of SXSW (thankfully it’s over), we had Aireborne Entertainment shoot this video of us preforming our newest DJ/Drummer concept at The Nook. Needless to say, it’s been going off like we never imagined! Another amazing video from the photoshoot above is coming real soon!


3/18/17 – SXSWedding

Thank you thank you so much to Rebecca and John for having me out to Hummingbird House to DJ their dream wedding! These guys are my dream client, wanting everything and anything from Country, Latino, throwbacks, and today’s jams. I usually only recommend a two hour dance segment, but Rebecca and John said they wanted to go for three. By the end of the night, we easily could have gone for another hour! I was in the zone not thinking of shooting a video, but hopefully we will get a video posted ASAP!


3/11/17 – Wedding

Congratulations to Brooke and Calvin who escaped a rather rainy weekend just in time to have a gorgeous ceremony at the beautiful Horseshoe Bay Resort in Marble Falls, Texas! I promised them the best dance segment ever, and as always I delivered! Video/Review to be coming soon!


3/4/17 – Wedding

Where to begin! Nick is the absolute best DJ and was an easy choice for our wedding! He did an amazing job communicating with us leading up to the wedding and his software system/website made organizing our music a breeze. It also gives you suggestions and helps you nix songs you definitely don’t want played (which is awesome). Our ceremony and reception were in two different places but Nick was able to provide the equipment and music for both! The ceremony music was absolutely perfect and he executed every transition so smoothly. Our reception turned into a huge dance party, which is exactly what we were wanting! Nick had people of all ages on the dance floor the entire night! You could really tell everyone was enjoying themselves. My husband and I were constantly getting compliments the entire night about how great Nick was and how they wished they had had a DJ like him for their weddings! We could not have asked for anything better! Nick worked with our coordinators leading up to the wedding to make sure everything was organized and ready. He also worked with them throughout the wedding to make sure the night ran smoothly all while being an AWESOME MC. For anyone looking for an amazing DJ you could not do any better than Nick! We highly recommend Hype Rhythm for anyone and everyone’s wedding! Nick is more than we could have ever asked for and helped to make our night perfect and full of amazing memories! Go with Hype Rhythm!

2/11/17 – Traditional Indian Wedding

Had the honor of DJing for Hima and Mithun at Brookhaven Country Club in Dallas, Texas. Their entire wedding was absolutely beautiful from start (7am!) to finish (11pm!). Above you can see the back of their dance floor, and below is how the space looked earlier during the ceremony. Had a great time, and am so appreciative that they gave me their trust to help them pull off a perfect wedding! Congratulations Hima and Mithun!

OH MY GAAAAAAAAWD
Nick!! Sorry to just be getting back to you.
First off, YOU *** KILLED IT.  Second, you’re the best DJ EVER.  everything was perfect, our friends and guests were obsessed w/ you and the tribute to MJ and price was the best part of the night.
Thank you so much for making the night so perfect, and seriously making us feel so special.  We will never ever forget our wedding day and reception.  I will send you 100% of any business I get and I sincerely hope we get a chance to work together again soon.
Thanks for everything,
Hima
