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

Here’s what the groom had to say:

“The team was very attentive and helpful throughout the entire planning process as well as during the ceremony. They made sure all of our desires were met and then some. The entertainment and energy were phenomenal and the photo booth was a huge hit. Thanks to Philly Custom DJ for a great experience and excellent addition to our wedding!”

Music from the Sea Shell Resort & Beach Club Wedding

The playlist had classic rock, current dance hits and some “down the shore” favorites. There were some relatives from Argentina that flew in for the wedding. We were able to play some of their favorites including Cali Y El Dandee and Maluma.

Check out the actual playlist on Spotify. It plays like a party.

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tal’s Birthday Party

Rocking the suburbs!

As a DJ I get to do lots of big parties and events. This past weekend I had the opportunity to play a house party for a friend and neighbor.

It was so much fun!

The people were great, each and every one of them was there to have a great time. I played Israeli music, both classic and current, house music, remixes, 80s, 90s, punk…you name it!

If you’re thinking about having a party in your home, backyard or local restaurant, look no further. Philly Custom DJ is here for you!

Listen on Mixcloud

I managed to record an hour and a half of the music from the early part of the party. I wish I had recorded the whole thing! You can see the whole playlist below.

Listen on Spotify

Some of the rare Israeli tracks aren’t available on Spotify, but lots of the dance mixes are.

Spring Ford Country Club Bar Mitzvah

Music for this bar mitzvah featured current pop music for the kids and dance favorites for the grown-ups at the Spring Ford Country Club in Royersford, PA. The bar mitzvah screened the music selections personally, rating each song with a yes, no or meh. The Philly Custom DJ team was happy to fulfill the bar mitzvah’s wishes, particularly his desire to be hoisted up on a chair during the hora.

We were especially happy to fulfill the first ever request made by a 3 year old guest. He asked for “I Like To Move It” from the movie Madagascar. When we played the song, the boy’s face lit up and he did a wild dance for the whole song. We wanted to play him songs all night. Continue reading Spring Ford Country Club Bar Mitzvah

Marsha Brown Bar Mitzvah

We love to DJ at Marsha Brown Creole Restaurant in New Hope, PA. We’ve done weddings and holiday parties, but this was our first Marsha Brown Bar Mitzvah. There were foosball tables set up for the kids and a great photo booth with custom gifts for all the party guests. Continue reading Marsha Brown Bar Mitzvah

The Greatest Wedding No Play List

When planning music for your wedding, the no-play list is just as important as the play list. Maybe more important. As a wedding DJ, it’s my obligation to ask couples which songs they don’t want to hear on their wedding day. Those songs vary from couple to couple. Some people want to avoid cheesy overplayed songs like Kool & The Gang’s Celebration or Pharrell’s Happy. Many couples want to avoid participation dances like the Electric Slide and the Macarena, or entire genres of music like Rap, Country or House Music. On the other hand, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure, so it’s important to ask. Continue reading The Greatest Wedding No Play List
