Twin Oaks House & Garden Estate Wedding | Club-style DJ!

On September 27, 2018, I had the pleasure to DJ and host Linda and Craig's wedding. That day marked their 10th year anniversary being together and we made it a celebration!

As a preferred vendor at Twin Oaks House & Garden Estate, I took care of their ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Although the day landed on a Thursday, we made it feel like it was a Saturday! The day was full of surprises and fun, unforgettable moments that majority of the people stayed.. on a weekday night!

That evening I played a mixture of Top 40, Hip Hop, Classics, Soca, and EDM! I loved how they had me in the middle of the room so I have more control of the dance floor. We collaborated together for the surprises and they raised the bar and set the tone of the night!

Linda & Craig are such a fun couple to work with and have such great loving friends. It was a pleasure making their 10th year anniversary and 1st time as husband and wife an absolutely amazing time.

Thanks for having me as your DJ!

On September 16, 2018, I had the pleasure to DJ and host Sarah and Mike's wedding at Hartley Botanica in Somis, CA. I was in charge of their ceremony, cocktail, and reception. This was a beautiful outdoor wedding venue where the guests experience the natural and class of this place.

We kicked things off with a grand entrance, first dance, and some dinner. We heard some toasts, witness the parent dances, and started to dance the night away! They were a fun crowd and I played a mixture of Top 40, Latin beats, Hip Hop, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s.

What's amazing about this couple was that they met at a nightclub in Miami! We brought that vibe back in Southern California and created a fun dance party.

Everybody had an amazing time. Thank you, Sarah & Mike, for having us!

Fun Wedding Vibes at Knollwood Country Club

This video captures some fun highlights from Mary & Jay's wedding at the Knollwood Country Club!

On September 8, 2018, I had the pleasure to DJ and host Mary and Jay's wedding at the Knollwood Country Club. As one of the preferred vendors at the venue, I can say that this is a great place to host an event. That evening, I was in charge of playing music during the cocktail hour and entertaining their guests during the reception.

As for equipment goes, I used my RCF EVOX 8 speakers with my LED Moving Heads and ADJ Dotz Tpar for lighting. My couple also requested uplights and I set up 18 Ape Labs Maxi uplights around the room. All of my lights are synced to my lighting software SoundSwitch which really created a fun party vibe throughout the room. I was also able to connect my secondary laptop to the venue's in-house TV system, so I played their Proposal video on there, and when it's time to dance, I had my own background dance video that I play.

For the reception itself, we kicked things off with a fun grand entrance. Then we heard a Jonny Z original song called "The Happiest Man" which he performed live for their First Dance. We went through the formalities such as the parent dances, bouquet and garter toss.

There were a few things that really made this wedding popping. One, when it was time for them to do their cake cutting, I had the guests form a tunnel as Mary and Jay go under as they make their way to the cake table. This was spontaneous and was my first time doing this! It worked out really well because instead of guests leaving the dance floor, we had them involved for the cake cutting. Second, Jay and Mary had organized a dance-off and this was something that we discussed earlier during the planning stages. We pulled it off and the dancers showed off their amazing dance moves!

For music, I played a mixture of everything that would get their guests dancing and they mainly left the music up to me. I played music such as Latin, group dances, 90s, 00s, and some EDM!

Overall, this was such a great wedding and a super fun and sweet couple. It was a pleasure being their DJ and MC.

Congrats, Jay & Mary!

This video shows some highlights and the beautiful wedding setup at the Millennium Biltmore Emerald Room for Christine & Peter!

On June 30, 2018, I had the pleasure to DJ and host for Christine and Peter's wedding. I worked with Modern LA Weddings to bring their wedding into a reality. I took care of their cocktail hour and reception. 

For the cocktail hour, I just used 1 QSC K8.2 speaker at the Bernard Room and played a mixture of upbeat music.

For the reception, I used my 2 RCF EVOX 8 speakers, Ape Labs Maxi Uplights, and LED mini moving heads. 

It was a fun and intimate wedding with their friends and family. The whole wedding reception was so elegant and when it was time to get down and party, they definitely lived it up! I played some Top 40, 00s, and booty shaking music to get them up on their feet. Christine and Peter had an amazing time and all of their friends were so great!

Thank you for having me as your DJ!

North Pavilion | Calamigos Ranch Wedding

This video captures some highlights from Amie & Jose's wedding at the Calamigos Ranch The North Pavilion Room!

On June 24, 2018, I DJed and hosted Amie & Jose's wedding. I was in charge of their ceremony, cocktail, and reception. Since it was my first time to DJ at that particular area, I scouted the venue a couple of weeks before the wedding to figure out my setup.

For the ceremony, I used 2-QSC K8.2 speakers with my Wireless Sennheiser Speaker system to cover the wide seating space. It was a beautiful ceremony and sounded wonderful! Everyone could hear what was happening from both sides of the ceremony and I didn't have to set up a wired XLR to daisy chain the speakers!

For the cocktail hour, I set up 1 RCF EVOX 8 Speaker on the deck. It's super low profile and has a great wide sound coverage.

For the reception, I have a setup crew who put all the trusses, lighting and sound together for me. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to put any speakers underneath the tent due to sound restrictions, so I had my speakers under the building and point my speakers outwards. My assistant was great and he helped me figure out my sound levels so the people in the back can hear me. 

I also had a custom monogram for the client. I used my ADJ Ikon Profile WW and got my gobo done from www.progobo.com

As for entertainment, we started off with a grand entrance, first dance, surprise dance with the bridal party, dinner, speeches, and dancing! While the couple was taking pictures outside, I kept the guests entertained and opened up the dance floor for people to dance. I started playing some jams and later that night cranked up the energy. I mixed a mixture of 80s, 90s, Hip Hop, 00s, and Top 40.

Overall, it was a great night and Amie and Jose had a wonderful time!
Thanks for having me as your DJ!

Hummingbird Nest Ranch Wedding

This video captures some highlights of Lindsey's and Tony's wedding at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch! Watch till the very end for the 5-star review!

On June 22, 2018, I had the pleasure to DJ and host Lindsey and Tony's wedding at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch. This was my 3rd time working at the venue and it's always exciting to work there. That evening, I was in charge of the cocktail hour behind the villa and the reception that took place in front of the villa.

I entertained about 270-280 guests with the majority being a younger crowd. I warmed up the dance floor and played some jams while people were having dinner. This set the tone of the night and got people up on their feet to groove to the beat. After some of the wedding formalities, we did a sparkler entrance! This was a twist! Usually, couples have a sparkler exit at the end of the night, but we switched things up and did a sparkler entrance onto the dance floor! This kicked off the dance party and I started off with Chris Brown's "Yeah 3x". This got everybody hyped and in a great mood! It quickly became a party and the wedding was LIT! We even got Lindsey and Tony lifted up in chairs at one point in the night!

Overall, it was a fun and successful night. We ended the party at 12:30am and there were a good amount of people still with us that night. Lindsey and Tony had an amazing time, and I had a blast as their DJ as I got to play some of those club bangers that you normally don't hear at a wedding. Thank you, Lindsey & Tony, for having me as your DJ and making your night unforgettable!

Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding!

This video captures some fun wedding highlights from Kailene and Robin's wedding at the Muckenthaler Mansion! I show the kind of music I played that evening and a quick walkthrough of the venue.

On May 27, 2018, I had the pleasure to DJ and MC Kailene and Robin's wedding at the Muckenthaler Mansion. It was my first time at the venue and everyone there was so friendly and easy to work with. Because of sound ordinances, they already have their own speaker setup and sound tech that I could just plug my system into.

That evening, I was in charge of the ceremony, cocktail, and reception. The venue was beautiful as it had different locations to host each part of the wedding. People enjoyed the dinner on the lawn and later that night, we invited everybody where the dance floor was. I really enjoyed how the photobooth and bar were near the dance floor so it was great to have everybody contained in 1 area.

As for music, I played Latin music, Top 40, Hip Hop, and some Disco to please everyone there that night. Everybody had a blast on the dance floor and Kailene and Robin had an amazing time.

Such amazing vibes that night. Thank you for having me!

This video captures some highlights from Kristin and Stephen's wedding at Gerry Ranch! I also give DJ & MC tips throughout the video! Keep watching till the very end to read my 5-star review from the happy couple!

5-Star Review: https://mojoe.media/kristinstephenreview

On May 26, 2018, I DJed the wedding of Kristin & Stephen at the Gerry Ranch in Camarillo, CA. It was an all-outdoor wedding and I was in charge of the ceremony, cocktail, and reception. This venue was a hidden gem with great views and scenery. It was made for only weddings in mind with a section for the ceremony, a section for the cocktail hour, and a section for the reception. 

As for entertainment goes, we kicked things off with a fun grand entrance and the first dance. We enjoyed the dinner provided by Command Performance Catering. We heard some great speeches and watched the parent dances. There was a twist with the Father & Daughter dance which started off with a slow song, then we transitioned it to "Barbara Ann" by the Beach Boys. This was the catalyst to start the dance party! I played some fun music that everybody could dance to. I even had them start a conga line to one of the songs, too!

Overall, this was a beautiful evening and Kristin & Stephen had an amazing time! I had a great time being their DJ and glad that everyone had a great time, too. Thanks Kristin & Stephen for having me!

Sherwood Country Club Wedding!

This video captures some fun highlights from Lily & Ryan's wedding at the Sherwood Country Club!

On May 18, 2018, I DJed and hosted a beautiful wedding for Lily & Ryan. It was my first time working at the Sherwood Country Club. The venue had an elegant, spring-time feel to it. 

That evening I was in charge of the ceremony, cocktail, and reception.
The ceremony took place outdoors and had a great view of the greenery and hills behind it. The cocktail hour happened on the patio next to it. For the reception, we invited the party inside the country club.

The couple just wanted fun, upbeat music throughout the night. They loved to dance and I brought the energy to them and their guests. I began the night with some Motown, funk, and disco. Then, later in the evening, I played music that is more catered to them and their friends. I played some throwbacks, pop, Top 40, and some 2000s. This video captures some great examples of the kind of music I played that evening.

Overall, Lily & Ryan had a fantastic time with their guests. They enjoyed the music and rarely left the dance floor! I had a great time DJing for them and DJing at the venue. Congrats to our newlyweds!

Santa Barbara Oceanfront Wedding!

This video captures some fun highlights from Therese and Aaron's wedding at QAD Inc. in Santa Barbara! You'll also hear the kind of songs that I play and see the thoughts going through my mind!

On May 5, 2018, I worked with an amazing team of vendors to make Therese & Aaron's wedding a success! The event took place at a corporate building called QAD Inc. with stunning ocean views.

The ceremony took place on the balcony with an elevated view of Santa Barbara. To accommodate the 180 guests, I used 2 speakers on both sides of the balcony to cover sound. We also had a musician who played some music and sang when the ceremony began.

After the ceremony, people enjoyed the cocktail hour below and enjoyed the oceanside view. The reception took place below, as well. The whole area was beautifully decorated and the vendor team did a great job setting up the tables and bistro/string lights! For dinner, I played dinner music that was great for everybody and mixed in some great tropical house covers of popular songs. For dancing, I started my set with something upbeat from Top 40 and 2000s. Then we had the cake cutting, thank you speech, bouquet toss, garter toss, and money dance. When we got the formalities out of the way, it was back to partying! The bride loves music from the 2000s so I threw in some party jams that got the party moving. Even at the end of the night, I had guests telling me to play one more song! So I did! I think that's how you know that they were having a great time.

Overall, the wedding was fun and a success! I had an amazing time rocking the crowd and working with a great team of vendors. Thank you, Therese and Aaron, for having me!

Kathryn & Bryan's Lit Wedding!

Here's a video capturing some fun highlights from Kathryn and Bryan's wedding at Villa Del Sol D'Oro! I also discuss the gear that I used at their wedding!

https://mojoe.media/WirelessSoundSystemAGIPRODJ

Video: https://youtu.be/JRy7RVxlASc

On April 14, 2018, I had the pleasure to DJ for Kathryn and Bryan at Villa Del Sol D'Oro. That evening I was in charge of their cocktail and reception. 

I was located in the main hall and used 2 RCF Evox 8 speakers on both corners of the room and a QSC K8.2 for the dinner on the patio. To minimize my XLR cables setup, I used my Sennheiser Wireless Speaker System for my RCF Evox 8 speakers. This also allowed me to have more sound coverage in the main hall. I also used my Ape Labs Maxi to provide uplights inside and outside of the building. 

We kicked things off with a fun grand entrance outside, their first dance, dinner and speeches. Then afterwards, we moved everybody inside for the cake cutting, parent dances, money dance, dancing, bouquet & garter and towards the end, a grand exit for our happy couple. 

As for music, I played a mixture of line dances, 80s, and 90s. And towards the end of the night, I played some current Top 40 hip-hop hits to please the B&G and their friends. 

Overall, this was a fun, lit and smooth wedding! The energy from the crowd was amazing and everybody had a fantastic time. Thanks, Kat & Bryan for having me as your DJ!

Cycle for Survival 2018!

This video captures highlights of Cycle For Survival 2018 at Equinox West LA! Watch me take you behind the scenes at this fun event.

Learn More & Join the Next Ride!
https://www.cycleforsurvival.org/

On February 24th, I DJed at Equinox West LA for Cycle for Survival! I worked with the AV team on-site to provide the energy and music for all of the teams and riders at the event. I worked alongside an MC, instructors, dancers, and a full production team to create an amazing experience for all of the riders.

For gear, I only brought with me what I needed such as my DJ controller, laptop, music, headphones, laptop cable, and a power strip. Then the AV hooked me up with XLR cables. We tested out sound, and the whole room sounded amazing! There was a subwoofer in the room to help people feel the booming bass in the music. They also installed a disco ball on top to create a cool party effect.

As for music, I mostly played upbeat, high energy EDM. I liked to play songs that people would recognize with a danceable, motivating beat. Partying along with me are some dancers to help keep the riders motivated as they cycle on through. 

Overall, this was a successful event, and I heard we raised over $27 million nationwide to help beat rare cancers! This was an amazing experience and am so happy to provide the energy for everyone that night. Thank you, Equinox, for having me!

Lake Arrowhead Wedding + DJ Mix Link!

Link to my sample wedding mix from the wedding:
https://mojoe.media/dancemix2018-01

On February 17, 2018, I DJed a destination wedding up in Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa for Katherine & Tyler. That evening I was in charge of the ceremony, cocktail, and reception.

The ceremony was at a beautiful spot with the sight of Lake Arrowhead in the background. I provided sound, music, and microphones for the officiant and the couple. The wedding ceremony was a success, and shortly after, everyone joined the cocktail hour at the resort's lobby. I also provided music as guests enjoyed drinks and appetizers.

Then it was time to welcome the guests into the room for the reception. The room was beautifully arranged and decorated. To lighten up the area, I set up my uplights around the walls of the room and had my DJ setup at the back of the room. The couple had their grand entrance, dinner, toasts, first dance, anniversary dance, bouquet toss, garter removal/toss, cake cutting, father & daughter dance, group photo, and dancing! 

It was an intimate wedding with their close family and friends, and we were so good on time that we had almost 3 hours of dancing! I played music that was fun for all age groups that I got the young and old up on their feet. This was such a fun wedding and I'm glad that Katherine and Tyler had an amazing time.

My 3rd Destination Wedding!

This video captures highlights of a destination wedding I DJed at Pine Hills Lodge in Julian, CA

On January 13, 2018, I traveled down to Julian, CA to DJ Alexis and Jianina's wedding in Pine Hills Lodge. It was an intimate wedding mostly comprising of their family and close friends. 
Fun history fact: Professional boxer, Jack Dempsey, used to train at the lodge when he built a gym there.

That evening I was in charge of their ceremony and reception. Originally, we were supposed to have the ceremony outdoors, but due to recent weather in the area, we kept it indoors. 
For the ceremony, I provided a simple QSC K8.2 speaker setup with a Shure GLXD24/SM58 Mic for the officiant.

For the cocktail hour, everyone went to the lodge's bar area for drinks and appetizers while Jianina and Alexis took pictures. The venue provided music for the cocktail hour using my iPad.

The dinner reception was in the room next over. It was beautifully decorated and I set up my uplights for the extra touch. I used my wireless Ape Labs Maxi with shield covers which were perfect because I didn't have to worry about cables and finding power outlets in the room. I set the color to amber and they added a nice warmth to the lodge/cabin feel of the room.

Once we had everybody seated in the reception area, we continued with the grand entrance, first dance, parent dances, toasts, cake cutting, money dance, and ended it with open dancing. 

Everybody had a great time and I'm glad I got to make it a fun and memorable experience for Jianina and Alexis.

Thanks for having me as your DJ!

Best NYE Indian Wedding Party!

DJed and hosted a 450 people wedding and NYE party at the Hyatt Regency Westlake Village! This video captures highlights throughout the event, sample DJ mix transitions, hype calls, and a live testimonial from the bride and groom.

On December 31, 2017, I had double honor DJing Anna & Andy's wedding and hosting the New Year's Eve celebration for 450 people! Such a fun Indian/Latino/American crowd!

It was an action-packed event. I was in charge of the sound, lighting, music, and entertainment that day.

To kick things off, we started with the Baraat around 9AM which had a second line band jumpstarting everyone's morning. Then they led everybody inside for the Hindu wedding ceremony.

After the morning ceremony, guests had lunch outside on the back lawn of the hotel and had a few hours break before the evening's festivities begin again later that day.

Around 5pm we had the cocktail hour which I played some music for the guests. At 6pm, we opened the doors to let people inside the reception room. Instead of the guests taking their seats, we started a 1-hour dance party in preparation for the bride and groom's entrance. This set the tone and energy of the night and left the people in a party mood throughout the evening.

We had some formalities such as the grand entrance, first dance, parent dances, and speeches. We also had a special performance by a Capoeira band and the bride and groom danced! We even had a surprise flash mob which many people were involved in.

We continued to dance the night away and as we got closer to midnight, I led the 450 people for the countdown. I played a special NYE edit from Clubkillers.com to play at the 1-minute mark. When the clock stroke midnight, I then played Mariah Carey's "Auld Lang Syne". It was such an epic time!

Afterward, we kept it that party vibe and I cranked up the energy a notch for all the late party people who were still with me. I played some good club bangers and a mixture of some Bollywood music, as well.

Everybody had a fantastic time that night and at the end of it, I even received a live testimonial from Anna & Andy sharing their experience.

Anna & Andy, thank you so much! I had a blast being your DJ & MC.

Corporate Party's First Time Dancing! @Boulevard3

This video captures a fun corporate holiday event party at one of Hollywood's clubs, Boulevard3!

On December 7, 2017, I had the honor to DJ on behalf of The One Up Group for a corporate holiday party at Boulevard3. They're an entertainment and production company in Los Angeles who was in charge of bringing the entertainment for this corporate event. I was in charge of setting the vibe of the party and worked alongside a live band consisting of a violinist, saxophonist, and drummer. I even got the chance to work with sky drummers which were positioned on high sticks overlooking the crowd.

I've partied at Boulevard3 before, but this was my first time DJing in here and everyone was super nice! I only brought my controller, laptop, and in-ear monitors and connected to their main mixer. In a few moments, I was ready to rock the party. This was my first time DJing for the company, and I was informed that the crowd isn't really a dancing crowd. After hearing that, I decided to challenge that idea. I played a mixture of 80s, Motown, Top 40, R&B, hip-hop, and house beats. Eventually, people were starting to bob their heads, tap their feet, and eventually danced!

I was contracted to perform till 12am, but they ended up extending me for another hour! I then even cranked it up a notch and played a bit of hip-hop and more club beats. This was an amazing event and the planner, CEO, organizer, people, staff and everybody else had a great time. This comes to show that music is definitely important at an event and having the right DJ contributes greatly to an event's success.

Thank you for having me!

What a Club-Style Wedding Looks Like!

On December 2, 2017, I was the DJ & MC for Dale & Denise's wedding at the Metropol Event Venue in Glendale, CA. That evening I took care of the music for their cocktail & reception. It's a gorgeous venue that's designed for a party. It has elegant furnishings, draping, flooring, and lighting! The venue even caters serving delicious family-style Mediterranean food. Overall, it was a great elegant, yet party vibe. I played some hits for the Filipino parents such as disco, cha cha, & group dance songs, and later I cranked up the energy with more Top 40, hip hop, and EDM for everybody else. It was a great blend of genres to keep the party going. One of my favorite memories that night was that we got the bride & groom up on the DJ stage to hype up their guests! We ended the night with "Don't Stop Believing" which everybody sang along. Dale & Denise had an amazing time that night, and I had a blast being their DJ. Thank you for having me!

Rocking a Quinceañera Party at the Langham Pasadena!

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!

DJ MOJOE with Blake Griffin!

DJ MOJOE with Blake Griffin

BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA -- I was asked to curate the playlist for Blake Griffin's Charity Event in Beverly Hills, CA that was to be held on September 15, 2017. I created a playlist that that was to be played at the Ermenegildo Zegna boutique store off at Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, CA. The client wanted music that will create a fun atmosphere while sticking to their brand standards. The client approved my music and on September 15th, I stopped by at the store to hear my music playlist play. Upon entering and checking in with the staff at this invitation-only event, I continued to the area where the charity event was held. I immediately recognized my music playlist being played through the store's speakers as I walked through. So far so good! When stepping into the event floor room, there were hors d'oeuvres and wine passed around which I happily grabbed some. Things were great! Then, I noticed a tall man among the guests in the room and it was none other than the man himself, Blake Griffin! To keep this story short, I was able to grab a picture with him after introducing myself. I'm happy to have helped out at the charity event by providing a fun playlist for people to enjoy. My client was happy with the music and the outcome of the event and looks forward to working with me again. Thank you for the opportunity!
