February 2018 Events Recap

Alex and Marla’s Wedding at The Union on Eighth -2/24/18

A big thanks to Marla and Alex for sending this picture over that the photographer captured during their first dance and final song of the night. Just a few days before I had an appendectomy, but DJ Kit and myself still made sure I was there to DJ and make Alex and Marla’s wedding perfect. An amazing day for an amazing wedding!


Caleb’s Bar Mitzvah at The Goodnight – 2/17/18

*Picture coming soon!*

Nick is absolutely fantastic. Just the fact that I hired him for two different parties, a few years apart should say a lot! He kept the guests engaged throughout the entire party. From the grown-ups, to the kids, to everyone in between…there was always something for everyone. People were dancing and playing until the very end of the night! Nick just knows how to read the crowd and do what is needed at just the right moment. He’s easy to work with, professional, responsive, and he’s the only DJ I would ever hire for events in the future.

Hyatt Regency Austin – Abby’s Bat Mitzvah – 2/3/18

I haven’t done a mitzvah in what feels like forever, but they are so much fun to do! Especially when I already know the client (DJed for Abby’s sister, Sara’s mitzvah, two years ago) and they know how much fun we are gonna have – everyone was so excited! The pressure was on to make sure the fun was just as fun if not more fun than Sara’s. Well glad to report that I did it once again as always! Thanks for trusting me again guys! Thanks to Rachael Hall Photography for the amazing picture above from the Hora.

5/29/17 – Mitzvah

Hype Rhythm’s Eugene “Alchemist Prime” Gil did an amazing job at Gavin’s Bar Mitzvah at The Getaway Car Club. Kids had a great time playing games and dancing to the top hits of today with Eugene and Eric, the party motivator. The guys were looking for an assortment of the newest rap music out today, but Hype was well prepared in making sure we had all the proper clean edits of any requested songs.


4/22/17 – Mitzvah

Celebrated Emily’s Bat Mitzvah at The Old San Fransisco Steak House in San Antonio. Easily one of the top mitzvah’s of 2017! Emily wanted to dance the entire time and we definitely made that happen from start to finish! Review to be posted soon!


4/21/17 – Wedding

Mr. and Mrs. “Johnifer” had a lovely wedding out at Welfare Cafe in Boerne, Texas. It was supposed to rain all day, but somehow ended up being one of the most perfect days of the year. Congratulations Jennifer and John!


4/1/17 – Wedding

Thanks to Ahisamac and Shane for having me out to Kevin Fowler’s Rustic Ranch. That dance party was nonstop! Her review below speaks for itself!

Nick was awesome at our wedding, everyone was talking about it at the wedding and after the wedding. We had a wedding with less than a 100 guests the day of coordinator suggested to have 2hrs or less of dancing because the amount of people, I’ve insist in having more time, best thing I did, Nick had everyone dancing from the first till the last song. When the last song was announced some people including me were asking if we could extend the party. We had the wedding I wanted it was soo much fun, everyone had fun.If you want your wedding day to be memorable he is the guy!
