In this video, I captured behind-the-scenes of my uplighting service at one of DJ Kara's events in West Hollywood. I also demonstrate how I use the new Ape Labs WAPP to control my uplights.

PASADENA, CALIFORNIA -- On October 13, 2017, I was the DJ and MC for Anna Sophia's Quinceañera at the Langham Huntington in Pasadena, CA. It was an Americanized version of the Quinceañera with a mixture of some Spanish songs to fit the tradition and English songs to keep the party live and upbeat.
That evening I was set up on stage with my two RCF Evox 8 Speakers, Pioneer DDJ-SX2, Mini LED Moving heads, Laptop, and SoundSwitch. I also provided Ape Labs Maxi uplights around the room to match her light pink color theme.
For her grand entrance, they had a mariachi band perform as she entered the room. During dinner, the mariachi band went around the room playing songs for everyone. We also watched a video presentation of Anna Sophia capturing some highlights of her life as she was growing up. Soon, we had the changing of the shoe ceremony, as well as, the father & daughter dance. We all partied and danced the rest of the night. Everyone had a great time at the party. Thanks Anna Sophia for having me as your DJ!
On September 30, 2017, I provided my DJ/MC service for Andrew and Emylee's reception at the Woodland Hills Country Club. This was about a Filipino wedding of about 200 people. That evening, I set up my equipment for the cocktail hour room and reception room. I used a combination of my QSC and RCF speaker system to cover sound. To create a clean DJ setup, I used my new Pro-X DJ Facade with my Ape Labs Maxi lights to light it up. For dance lights, I used 2-wireless dongles to sync my moving heads.
The evening kicked off with a fun grand entrance of the bride and groom leading to their first dance and dinner. While guests are eating, I hosted a trivia game for the guests to learn more about the happy couple and gave away prizes to the winners. We continued with the parent dances, dancing, cake cutting, bouquet & garter toss, a group photo, honeymoon dance, and another open dance set. I even taught a few people how to dance the cha cha later in the night. Everybody had an amazing time that night, especially our bride and groom. Thank you Andrew & Emylee for having me as your DJ!
