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!

There are many factors to consider when choosing a venue to host your event.

It is important to become familiar with the venue space and know any challenges one may face to make it an ideal night.

Everyone will have their own reasons to what makes a venue an ideal place to work or to host an event. From my perspective as a DJ, and after working here 3 times, here are my 5 reasons why the Hummingbird Nest Ranch is great!

2. DJ & bar are near the dance floor!

3. There are options to where you can host your event.

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!

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!

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!

Wireless Sound System:
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!

How to Choose a First Dance Song | Wedding Tips & Advice

Photo by  Alvin Mahmudov

The First Dance is an intimate part of the evening when you get the opportunity to dance with your new wife or husband in front of your all of your guests. Everyone gets to see the chemistry and interaction that you have with each other, as well as your dance moves. This part of the night can be stressful for some couples as they may not be good dancers, may not know which song to choose, or may not like the center of attention. It doesn't have to be this way. You're about to read some tips to help make your First Dance more pleasant, memorable, and smooth for both you and your partner.

Photo by  Alexandra Gorn

How do I choose my First Dance song?

If you only have one song to choose to dance in front of your wedding guests, what would it be? You have several factors to consider when choosing a song such as its genre, tempo, length, type of dance, mood, and mutual likeness from both parties. If you were to start narrowing down some songs, start with songs that the both of you enjoy. It would be even better if the song had an emotional connection that brought you closer together in the relationship. Make the song meaningful!

Once you narrow down some songs that you both like, you can narrow it down even further by agreeing on the kind of dance and vibe you want. Do you want something light-hearted and fun? Do you want it more romantic and slow? Is it something that both of you can dance to? 

Once you have a good small list of songs that may work for you, pick and agree with one together! :)

What if you want your First Dance song to be different and stand out?
I can see the music lovers asking this question. You can look up cover songs of your favorites on YouTube and Spotify! You get to discover such amazing talent out there and surprise your guests with something familiar and unique!

Below are two Spotify playlists to help you with your song selections:

Top Requested First Dances

My Personal Favorites

I'm not a great dancer, what should I do?

You don't need to be a great dancer for your First Dance, but it would help if you know some basic moves to make it look like you know what you're doing! Remember, you're most likely going to be on video to be remembered for ages to come. Do you want to look like you know what you're doing? If yes, please take the time to learn! There are many resources out there to start doing so. You can even take some dance classes with your fiancé so both of you can benefit together.

Here are some online dance lessons you can start learning today!

We want our First Dance to be choreographed, do you recommend anyone to help us with this?

Yes, I do! Please contact Crystal Shum from Exceptionally Yours. Not only is she a wedding planner/coordinator, she's also a dance instructor and choreographer! Definitely reach out to her to discuss your vision.

If your choreographed First Dance is a combination of songs, ask your DJ to help you mix it all together in one continuous track! This is a service that I also provide, so if you need help with making one, let me know!

We don't like to be the center of attention, what can we do about it?

Ask your DJ to shorten the song for you! That way you won't be on the dance floor for too long. If you decide to go this route, ask your DJ if he/she can make a custom edit of the song to end it when you want. This will give you time to practice your dance moves at home, and if you time it right, you can end the dance with some flair! 

As for when to shorten the song, usually, it's best to end the song at the end of either the 1st or 2nd chorus of the song, before it hits the bridge. Consult with your DJ to find a good time to end the song!

If you want another creative way to go about this, please continue reading below!

Bonus! Even More Tips & Advice!

1. Ask the DJ if he/she provides a spotlight to highlight both of you on the dance floor!
2. Midway through your First Dance song, you can invite all the couples to join you and finish the song! That way, you won't feel like you're the center of attention!
3. After you invited everyone to dance with you, you can have your DJ play another slow dance song which you can segue to the Anniversary Dance. Don't know what it is? Ask me in the comments section below ;-)
4. You can even choose a First Dance song that encourages crowd participation whether it's clapping or singing along!
5. Depending on your style and enough time in the schedule, you can also kick things off with a short dance party right after your First Dance

These are just some of my thoughts when it comes to First Dances. Thanks for reading this! I hope this article has been helpful! If you need any more help or have any thoughts that you would like to share, I'd love to hear them in the comment section below. Cheers and have a great day!

Super Fun Wedding at the Bel-Air Bay Club!

This video captures some fun highlights from Bryan & Erma's wedding at the Bel-Air Bay Club! Watch until the end to read the 5-star review!

Wedding Recap!
On March 3, 2018, I had the pleasure to DJ/MC Bryan & Erma's wedding at the Bel-Air Bay Club. That evening I was in charge of their cocktail and reception. They had their ceremony outside on the lawn with the view of the Pacific Ocean behind them. It's an incredible view and this venue should be considered if you want that beachy, yet elegant look for your wedding. The ceremony was a success! And as you can tell, the guests are a fun crowd and ready to continue with the evening's festivities.

Shortly after the ceremony, we invited the guests over for the cocktail hour at the patio. I provided 1-QSC K8.2 speaker on an Ultimate Stand to provide the music as guests enjoy their drinks and appetizers.

Inside for the reception, I had dual trusses with moving heads, along with some JBL tops and subs for the music. I also provided a spotlight to highlight the people walking in for the grand entrance, speeches, and first dance. This video captures the fun reception as we even had a surprise dance from the groom and his groomsmen for Erma. This kicked things off and we started a dance party right after! I played a mixture of Top 40, throwbacks, Latin, pop, and hip-hop! Everyone had an amazing time on the dance floor.

This was my first time DJing at the venue and I even got compliments from the staff there. They usually have complaints about how other DJs have their music volume too loud. My music volume was perfect! and they liked how I worked with them to make sure that wouldn't be a problem.

All-in-all, this was a super fun wedding! Thank you, Bryan & Erma for having me as your DJ and making your night special.

Thanks for watching!

Lake Arrowhead Wedding + DJ Mix Link!

This video captures the highlights from Tyler and Katherine's wedding up in Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa! I also include a link to listen to my live set recorded at the wedding!

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.

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!

Filipino Wedding of 200 Guests at Woodland Hills Country Club!

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!

When a DJ & Band Rocks a Wedding!

On September 17, 2017, I DJed a wonderful wedding at the Birchwood Room in Calamigos Ranch for Danny & Evelyn. They hired me to DJ & MC for their ceremony and reception. At that time, it was my 2nd time DJing at the Birchwood Room and it was a pleasure to be back again. 

Their wedding ceremony took place on the lawn in front of the fountain. I provided a wireless microphone and speaker to play music and for the officiant to speak. Everything went smoothly and the bride's song selection added an elegant and personal touch.

For the cocktail hour, they had a live band play r&b and Motown tracks to set the mood of the night. They were a great addition to add to their wedding and people loved them. 

For the dinner, it took place on the patio of the venue which created a nice, intimate vibe. We had the band play during the 1st half of dinner and I had my chance to spin the 2nd half.

After the wedding formalities, we had the band open up the dance floor playing amazing covers such as September, Uptown Funk, and other dance classics. Then we switched up the vibe when it was my turn to perform. I continued to keep the dance floor by mixing a Latin set that included Suavemente, Danza Kuduro, Baila Esta Cumbia, and other Latin bangers. Everyone danced till the end and had an amazing time. 

Overall, Danny, Evelyn, and their guests had a great time at the wedding. Thank you for having me as your DJ!
