40th Birthday Party at Bernie’s In Hatboro

Here’s What The Birthday Girl Said

Bernie’s in Hatboro

Thinking about having a party at Bernie’s? We highly recommend. The staff is friendly, the food is great, and there’s a great atmosphere. We had our party in a room in the back while there was a live band playing in the front. The venue is large enough that we didn’t compete with each other. The birthday girl even joined the band for a rousing rendition of Radiohead’s Creep at the end of the night.

This mix is a soundtrack for a particular kind of night.

It starts with happy hour at the sake bar, with fine sake, like Tsukasabotan.
Then it’s back home for some old movies and reruns on TV.
After turning off the tube, it’s time to get your skates on for some roller disco.

Sea Shell Resort & Beach Club Wedding on LBI

This was a gorgeous wedding at the Sea Shell Resort & Beach Club on Long Beach Island. The ceremony was held outside with a cocktail hour on the patio. The reception was rocking and the staff at the Sea Shell were friendly and helpful. We set up our photo booth on the left side of the bar, and it was busy all night!

The end of the wedding featured a sparkler send-off.

The Ceremony

It was a little windy near the beach. We set up speakers outdoors, off-camera. Guests were able to hear the ceremony clearly no matter where they sat.

Windy and wonderful start! #BeachWedding #weddingdj #lbi

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. 😉

The Vendors

SarahFrench Events: She has a plan!
Federal Donuts: Mmm! Donuts!
Nomad Pizza:Killer za.
Swig: Bring in the pros for bar tending and food serving
