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!

#50thBirthday The Birthday Boy is happy! #mobiledj

Best Song I Didn’t Play

The birthday boy’s brother-in-law requested We Are The Nowtones by Blotto. We listened to it through the headphones and smiled quietly to ourselves. Hope you do too!

Long Beach Island Wedding

If This Isn’t Nice, I Don’t Know What Is

The bride and groom rented an entire Bed and Breakfast for the weekend: The Island Guest House in Beach Haven, NJ.  The wedding, including the ceremony took place in a tent right beside the house.  The weekend was rainy, but the guests were energized and not a single drop fell throughout the reception.

As guests were getting settled into their seats, Trevor Collins played acoustic guitar plugged into our system.  A friend of the couple conducted the  brief, touching and beautiful ceremony.  At one point all the guests joined him in repeating the famous words of Kurt Vonnegut, “If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.”

Indian Spring Country Club Wedding

Multi-Cultural Wedding With Style

This wedding at the Indian Spring Country Club celebrated the union of an Indian bride and Korean Groom. It was planned at a distance: the bride and groom live in California, but the wedding was held in New Jersey, close to the bride’s family. All the meetings and conversations took place over the phone or using Google Hangouts for video conferencing. The bride wanted to include some Bollywood hits and provided a list of songs that she and her family like. The groom’s music was from his college days where he and his friends used to host excellent parties. The combination made the wedding a memorable experience for everyone involved.
