Jack+Natalie

This past weekend I had the honor of working with Jack and Natalie for their wedding at The Vue in Columbus. It was elegant but casual; with Blu Olive Food Truck providing Italian street fare for dinner, and Jeni’s Ice Cream for dessert. Jack and Natalie’s wedding was a blast, as I knew it would […]

Melissa + John

This weekend I have the pleasure of working with Melissa and John Michael on their wedding at the Venue at Dock 580. I’ve said it before and I will say it again: my clients are the coolest. For one, Melissa and John have a great sense of style, especially when it comes to music. For their […]

I don’t do stock playlists.

I don’t do stock playlists.

I recently met with a new client over coffee and we talked extensively about the music, atmosphere and theme of her wedding . I always make a point to ask questions like, “when you’re with your friends, what’s your favorite music to dance to?” “what music do your parents like?” I try to make each […]

When someone asks you to DJ a wedding, it is a great honor. They have personally hand-selected you from dozens and dozens of potential choices to hold that all-important spot on their day. They pick you because you fit in to their idea of “a perfect wedding.” They pick you because they think you are […]

Hey, Santa Claus.

Those close to me know how much I love Christmas.

Hire a DJ. On your budget.

Hire a DJ. On your budget.

  Not all people hire a professional DJ for their wedding. And sometimes that’s okay. Other times it’s not. Is your wedding date quickly approaching and you’re  having second thoughts about using an iPod plugged into a set of not-so-great speakers? Is that weird cousin that said he’d DJ your wedding scaring you with his […]

Anna & Brandy

“Dear Anna & Brandy, Thank you for letting me play Ginuwine at your wedding. Also, thanks for being really cool in general.” When I DJ wedding, a lot of times I feel the urge to write thank-you cards to the couple afterwards. I know this sounds odd, but I feel like I have just as […]

In spite of ourselves…

In spite of ourselves…

The thing I love about working with my clients is that they regularly introduce me to new music. This weekend I will be DJ’ing Mark and Aubri’s wedding. They are both incredibly sweet and so obviously in love. The playlist they made for me consists of indie love songs like “Us” by Regina Spektor and […]

Wouldn’t It Be Nice?

I really liked the Beach Boys as a kid.

Preston & Lindsay

Preston and Lindsay Stoller got married this past month at Northbank Pavilion here in Columbus. It was a great time and, as with most of my clients, they were big music fans. They were into a lot of different genres, from hip-hop to indie rock,  from electronic  to soul. But they were overwhelmingly into very […]

Shooter

I got to see Shooter Jennings (son of Waylon) last night in an outdoor concert in Ashville, Ohio. Maybe it was the cheap liquor or the fact that the weather was beyond divine, but it was one of the best concerts I have been to in a while. Columbus group Philip Fox Band opened, which in […]

I’m in Derby Mode.

I love Dj’ing for roller derby. Here’s why.
