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!

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!

April in Austin, Texas

4/10/17 – ILEA Happy Hour

Hype Rhythm Live was debuted at ILEA’s April Happy Hour at Speakeasy. Proud to say we got people dancing, which is unusual to say the least. We know how to bring the energy that gets people grooving!


5/30/17 –  Wedding

Proud to say this is Hype Rhythm’s first LBGT wedding! Congratulations to Stephanie and Cara, and thank you for letting me be a part of yall’s big day! The newly wed’s first dance and Hype Rhythm’s new essential lighting package is pictured above at Camp Lucy‘s Ian’s Chapel.


5/29/17 – Wedding

Had the honor of being the DJ for my good friend from college. Hype Rhythm’s standard package light set up is pictured above at The Austin Club. But most importantly, this party was awesome! Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Taraba!


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!
