January 2018 Events Recap

Driskill Hotel Wedding Showcase – 1/21/18

Hype Rhythm is so excited to announce our addition of DJ Kit Ketterman to the HRDJ roster! Kit is a true professional DJ, as he’s been DJing in Austin for the past 16 years, done almost as many weddings as I have, and has been/is the resident DJ on West 6th at The Ranch (for 8 years) and Buford’s Backyard (since its opening) – All done as an individual DJ. Kit has spent many years in Radio DJing as well and is an amazing MC and coordinator. Our first event together was at the Driskill Wedding Showcase thanks to Jessica Dickman with Clink Events. Excited for 2018!!!


Hilton Austin – Corporate Party – 1/20/18

Another Groove Labs after party event that was a lot of fun to do. Going into it I was told that the (not to be named) guests would mostly be 50’s+ and to have a good selection of Classic Rock playing, but once again you can never judge a book by its cover. Ended up being a much younger crowd who wanted to hear club jams. Real DJing brought the two together and started the night off right for these guys!


Patrick and Lindsay’s Canyonwood Ridge Wedding – 1/19/18

Another amazing Hype Rhythm Live (DJ+Drummer) production at one of my personal favorite venues in Dripping Springs, Canyonwood Ridge! The two coordinators, Alex and Amanda, are some of the best at what they do and make my job so much easier and the event run smoothly and stress free.  Even though Patrick and Lindsay said they weren’t much of dancers, we knew the perfect songs to get them and their guests dancing all night as you can see below!


Audi Corporate Convention at San Antonio Grand Hyatt– 1/15/18

Thanks to this amazing partnership with Groove Labs, DJ the DJ. Groove Labs brought in over 100+ classic vinyls, which you can see on display above. Guests were invited to come up, pick a song off a vinyl, and I would mix it in on my turntables. Great way to keep the music fun and interactive, especially for a corporate event where people are there to network and not dance.


Austin Bridal Extravaganza January 6/7 2018

Had a great time spinning some classics at the ABE for the third year now! Great meeting so many people interested in what I do. As you can see, in 2018 I have taken a step forward by taking a step back (in time). Now once again DJing a (limited) real vinyl set during cocktail/dinner time for all clients, then I switch over to Serato Control Vinyl after that. Ask if you’re interested in how it works!

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.

May 2017

5/28/17 – Wedding

Thank you so much to my fellow UT grads, Ashley and Scott, for trusting me to help them with their wedding at Ma Maison! When we were in college Ashley would hire me to DJ her organization’s parties, so from the boat parties, to formals, and now your wedding, I’m so thankful for your friendship and support! Everything was absolutely perfect, as always, from start to finish and I couldn’t be more happy for y’all as the new Mr. and Mrs. Rasmussen! My Snapchat story below.


5/27/17 – Wedding

Had a great time at Donnie and Kelsey’s wedding at The Addison Grove. Rebecca and Kim with Eclipse Events did an amazing job helping fight through the rain and humidity to pull of a perfect wedding! Of course, yours truly came through with the on point music to make an unforgettable night for everyone. My Snapchat story below.


5/20/17 – 50th Birthday Party

Jennifer was looking for unique and unusual entertainment for her husband’s 50th birthday, Hype Rhythm was just what she was looking for. We all had a great time and guests could not get enough of our contagious dance energy and great song selections! Pictured above is the look of our set up that is now included in every package. Four up-lights, two stage (party) lights on stands, Bose dual tower system, wireless mic, and of course with a real drum kit and real turntables.


5/19/17 – Wedding

Thank you to Debora and John for trusting me to help make your day unforgettable at the beautiful, new Dripping Springs venue, Canyonwood Ridge. Highly recommended for its beautiful chapel seen above!

The real story here was at the very end of the night when guests were asked to line up for the sparkler exit. Long story short, the limo driver got lost on the way to the venue and ended up bottoming out in a ditch. Still wanting to make their day perfect, I stepped up to the plate and offered my Jeep to be the getaway vehicle for their sparkler exit. Funniest thing I’ve ever done as a DJ while doing this for the past 8 years. I can now say my services include DJ, MC, Officiant, and Limo Driver! I do it all to make your day perfect!


5/13/17 – Wedding

Kim and Rob got married at Blue Rock Estate , recently opened by Disch Events, an absolutely beautiful venue! This was one of the first weddings where I was asked to play throwback hits from the early 2010’s, which makes me feel old just typing that. Haha! Congratulations to Kim and Rob and thanks for having me be there to make everything go perfect!


5/6/17 – Wedding

When you have a large, beautiful backyard, having a wedding at your house isn’t a bad idea. Thank you so much to my long time friends, Sara and John for having me to their house in San Antonio to DJ their dinner and reception.


5/5/17 – Wedding

Hype Rhythm Live did our second official wedding at Barr Mansion! We were so excited to be the preforming for this wedding, and honestly, it exceeded our expectations for how much fun it was gonna be. Luckily, we had Airebourne Entertainment there to video capture all the dance floor action! Official professional video coming ASAP! Thank you for trusting us for taking your wedding to the next level, and congratulations to my A&M friends, John and Hailey!
