50th Birthday Party At Nero’s

Classic Rock, Yacht Rock & Jersey Rock

I had the great pleasure of DJing a 50th Birthday party for a good friend at Nero’s in Livingston, NJ. The birthday boy reserved a private room, and we set up our compact system in the corner.

The birthday boy had a great time!
