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.

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!

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!

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!

Thank you to Katelyn and Drew for having me as their DJ at The Terrace Club. Apologies for the iPhone video below that I shot, but its a nice little sneak peak of the fun we had!

March into the wedding season

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!
