A very heartwarming Christmas party….

Perhaps this is one of the most touching parties I’ve had the honor of entertaining… just check out the video! This was a Winter Formal Ball for various classes for the mentally challenged. These guys were so HAPPY with everything that was done for them. They came in donning their best formal outfits, came prepared to sing, dance, and laugh as Santa came out with gifts.  At the very end I was greeted with a special request for Karaoke. His name is James and said he’d like to sing Michael Jackson’s Beat It. I asked him if he needed the words and he said no need. He impressed everyone with his singing AND his moves! Honestly, he did this performance better than 99% of Karaoke singers I’ve seen.  Just watch the video! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!       And video!!   WATCH IT!! 🙂...

DJ in Dundee, Halloween event near Winter Haven

Need an entertainer for your community party? Someone that can entertain people of all ages and represent your community in its chosen flavor? www.apremierentertainment.com How about a kid’s party? www.BubbleManiaParties.com The community of Dundee did a great job putting together a Halloween festival for everyone of all ages to enjoy. While everything was outside, I was inside in the “break area” where people could eat. This was also where the pie-eating contest and the costume contest were held. My stage was set up like a graveyard, and I was asked to DJ in costume. No problem… I got in serious character for the evening… I was the grim reaper, better known as the Death Jockey. My voice and acting classes from my (Art-based) high school REALLY came into play here. I had a great sound clip (no video– too many kids) but it got corrupted of the voice used. It wasn’t a traditional screechy voice (like Tales from the Crypt)… it was a monotone-ish, devil-sounding voice. Lots of humor was thrown along with the announcements to make sure no kids got scared AND to not make it so “evil.” My head stayed down at all times (no mask, too hot) except when I put the cape over my face to see what was going on (it’s a one-way fabric.. I can see out, but they can’t see in). It was HARD to be interactive and lead line dances without people seeing your face! It was fun! Check out the link below for...

Karaoke DJ in Davenport, FL

Need an entertainer for your community party? Someone that can entertain people of all ages and represent your community in its chosen flavor? www.apremierentertainment.com Providence Golf and Country club in Davenport, FL has invited us once again to entertain their Karaoke night. Sorry if I didn’t include photos or video, but there were several small children and for their safety I opt out of posting their photos. It was a blast– and Sally and her staff are top-notch. The food was delicious, too. My favorite was the mushroom and steak bites. These combined three great things: mushrooms and steak in a bite-sized form. MMM mmmm MMMM!! For you gear junkies, I posted some cool pics of my new setup. I am using an ADJ mixer (which isn’t all too bad, just lacks some crucial features) as a placeholder until my Denon arrives (thank YOU, Nathan!). The smaller footprint of the new mixer (Denon is the same size) allows my screen to stay halfway in, making my setup a bit more elegant. I passed out a few cards and even had a quick sit-down with a couple (after the evening was over) to discuss their wedding! 🙂 Click the link below to see photos from the event I DJed at in Davenport, FL. Even for a small, Karaoke gig… cable management is look of setup is ALWAYS important. This applied for the front AND back… when people make requests, they take notice! The karaoke monitor, currently displaying my DJ logo. 😉 Before setup started. You’ll see how much neater the monitor setup looks halfway inside the console....
