La Jolla Country Day School Homecoming 2010

A local private school added a little bit of mystery and suspense to their Homecoming this year with their “James Bond” themed dance. It was held at the Bahia Resort Hotel and was a very classy affair. The Homecoming drew in about 340 kids which is one of the largest turn outs that the school has had in recent years and I kept them dancing with the latest Top 40, Hip Hop, Techno, Electro and throwbacks. What an amazing crowd, as always, and I can’t wait to see them again at Tri-School in February! Thanks to the ASB for putting on a night to remember! 🙂

Serra High Homecoming 2010

If the movie “The Wizard of Oz” was held in a night club, that would be the best way to describe Serra High’s Homecoming 2010 aptly named “The Wicked Dance of the West.” Outside of the gym was transformed to resemble Kansas and inside was lit up in green everywhere to resembled Oz. Serra went big this year with a perimeter of four 10-foot truss pieces wrapped in spandex and up lit with green ambient lights and atop each tower was a high-tech laser. DJ/VJ Ayla Simone was on a stage in the middle of the gymnasium surrounded by two LED DJ Facades back lit with green, four 10-foot truss towers also up lit with green, intelligent lighting and four 47″ plasma screens. And if that wasn’t enough, around the gym were four custom-built dance platforms. Ayla mixed Top 40, Hip Hop and Electro music videos and threw in a few throwbacks as well to keep the dance floor of over 600 students packed. Our special thanks go out to Joe Schmidt and the AMAZING ASB at Serra High who put on an amazing Homecomingand we can’t wait to work with you on your next dance! 🙂

Patrick Henry Homecoming 2010

Patrick Henry‘s “Board Game Boogie” Homecoming was awesome! The ASB did a great job of creating board game-themed posters around the gym and along with the balloon archway and the lighting provided by J. Soul Productions, the dance was a huge success. DJ Dev played a wide variety of Hip Hop, Pop, Electro, Techno and line dances like “Cupid Shuffle” and “Cha Cha Slide.” The video was a little dark and the audio on it was somewhat distorted at times, but Jordan did his best to capture the excitement of the evening. It’s always a blast when we get a chance to return to Patrick Henry and our thanks go out to Mr. Miller, Lauren Naughton and the rest of the ASB for their dedication and hard work in making this dance another hot one! 🙂

Francis Parker Homecoming 2010

For my third straight Homecoming at Francis Parker, they chose an “Alice In Wonderland” theme. The students and parents did an amazing job transforming the gym into a scene out of the movie with backdrops, props and a full-fledged candy bar. On the far side of the gym they had a lounge area with 2 Wii stations and the movie “Alice In Wonderland” playing on a projection screen. We brought in 20 feet of truss, four intelligent lights, a Revo 4 light and an LED black light bar to give the ceiling decorations a nice glow. We also premiered one of our new LED DJ Facades which gave a really nice look to the stage area. The dance was insane with a good mix of Top 40, Hip Hop, Electro and Techno. My dancers DJ Dev and Joey Mac helped to pump up the crowd and take this dance to the next level. Enjoy the photos and video below and we can’t wait to see Parker again at Tri-School in February! 🙂

Patrick Henry Welcome Back Dance 2010

3…2…1…BLAST off into an “Intergalactic Galaxy.” Doing his first school dance at his alma mater Patrick Henry High School, DJ Dev turned off the lights and launched the first dance of the 2010-2011 school year at “Henry Mission Control.” For this dance we used two American DJ UV Panels, our American DJ UV LED Bar, and the American DJ Revo 4 for lighting. That gave them out of this universe lighting effects and paired with two JBL PRX 525 speakers, DJ Dev rocked their world!

Dev did a great job of playing today’s Top 40 favorites as well as doing a few line dances and playing some throwback Techno hits. And to fit with the theme of the dance, Dev even threw in “Intergalactic” by The Beastie Boys. Not only did the gym glow, but the music choices put a huge smile on everyone’s faces students and administrators alike! Next stop…Patrick Henry High’s Homecoming 2010! 🙂

Serra High Welcome Back Dance 2010

It was “lights out” last night at Serra High School’s “Glow In The Dark” Welcome Back Dance last night…LITERALLY! It was a glow in the dark theme for the school’s first dance of the year and our mission was to make the gymnasium glow, so we brought in our two American DJ UV Panels and our American DJ UV LED Bar and lit up the entire gym with black lights. We also did some video mixing on two plasma screens hanging from 20 feet of truss along with four Comscan intelligent lights and four of our big JBL speakers. Once the lights went out, the students started filing in and the party began. I mixed the hottest Top 40, Hip Hop, Techno and Electro along with some throwbacks, the Cha Cha Slide and I even got out on the floor with the students and did the “Cupid Shuffle” with them. This was one of the biggest turnouts for their Welcome Back Dance with over 500 tickets sold and next month for Homecoming we’re hoping to double that number. Many thanks go out to Joe Schmidt and the awesome ASB, staff and chaperones at Serra High. Successful event, great kids and we’re excited about this new relationship! 🙂

Francis Parker Welcome Back Dance 2010

This past Saturday was the big welcome back dance at Francis Parker School. In previous years they have done a Luau theme for their first dance of the school year, but this year they decided to change up the theme and location. They went with an ode to Willy Wonka and everything else candy and named their dance “The Sweet Escape.” They had me set up in an awesome location on a balcony overlooking the dance floor and the ASB did an amazing job decorating the dance area. Inside of the theater, the ASB was showing “Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory” for any students who wanted to get away from the music and dancing. But it was my goal to keep as many of the almost 200 kids in attendance on the floor as possible, and I definitely succeeded. Along with DJ Dev, I had an amazing time at The Sweet Escape with the students of Francis Parker and I can’t wait to return in a few weeks for Homecoming 2010.

University of San Diego Casino Night 2010

Monday night was the grand finale and dance for the University of San Diego‘s Torero Days Freshman Orientation Week. This time the dance was held inside of the Hahn Building and in one side of the hall they had a casino set up and we were set up on the other. The theme for the party was “Superheroes” and everyone came dressed in their best superhero costumes. Once the dance got started, it took no time at all for the bass from our speakers to do something that no DJ company had ever done before…we knocked five of the hall’s light fixtures out of their holes. The dance floor stayed packed the entire night and I played a nice mix of Hip Hop, Pop, Electro, and some Throwbacks. On behalf of myself, Dev and Joe we had an absolute blast being part of USD’s celebration over the past few days. We ended the evening with some pop throwbacks and I continued the playing more classics for The Squad that was cleaning up after the dance. It ended up causing an impromptu singing and dancing circle (see video below). It was the perfect way to cap off a great night. We are looking forward to a long-standing relationship with the university with many more exciting events to come. Special thanks go out to Melissa and Cole and the rest of the organizers there who were so easy to work with and made us feel at home…

And we hope you guys got those lights fixed… 🙂

University of San Diego Carnival 2010

I got the opportunity to be a part of the University of San Diego‘s Torero Days Freshman Orientation Week and the two major events they had planned at the beginning of the school year. The first event (The Carnival) was in front of the Hahn Building on campus. The road in front of the building was blocked off and Party Pals provided blow up slides and moon bounces. Next to my stage was a Rock Band and Wii station set up by the school. I brought along DJ Dev and Joe McDonald to help with set up, which consisted of 20 feet of truss, four American DJ Comscan lights, one Revo Rave 4 light and four JBL PRX 525 speakers. Once the students began arriving, they quickly filled up the dance floor area as well as partaking in the other activities provided for them. I played a variety of dance music and in no time at all, a dance cipher began forming on the floor. Dev and Joe did a great job of helping to keep the energy going and with the two of them being amazing dancers, they helped to create a fun environment on the dance floor. Up next is the grand finale event, the big dance on Monday night. I can’t wait to return to USD, I had an amazing time!
