Bok Wedding

We had the pleasure of providing Wedding DJ services for a wedding at Bok in Philadelphia, PA on April 22, 2017. The playlist for the wedding was outstanding! The groom and I have similar taste in music. A lot of his song suggestions were songs I used in my own mixes. The shape of Workshop Room in Bok presents a challenge: it’s L shaped with the dance floor on one side, and the meal in the other room. To make it even more interesting, it was raining, which meant we couldn’t use the roof deck, and the food trucks catering the event would have to alter their plans. Saving the day, keeping it all together, and having a plan, was the wedding planner, SarahFrench. The wedding went smoothly, and everyone rocked out and had a great time.

Here’s what the bride had to say:

My husband and I were concerned about two things for our wedding plenty of booze and a dance party. Adam together with my husband put together an amazing playlist. We never heard a single song with didn’t want to listen to. We were dancing all night long, pretty much since dinner time. It was exactly how we wanted to night to be like. All of our guests are still raving about how much fun they all had. We got so lucky to find Adam. Thank you so much for a memorable evening! PS: If your husband has a very specific taste of music not your mainstream kinda thing Adam can handle it amazingly. Also are your two families from two different cultures! YUP Adam can make everyone dance. 😉
