We were fortunate enough to be able to provide entertainment for Alain’s 40th Birthday Party this past weekend and this was one of those parties that reminds me of why I love what I do and why I do it. More after the break!
The theme here was “NYC Lounge” and Vine was the perfect spot to host this event. Check out our review of Vine to really get a feel for the venue, but if you want the short version, let me save you some time – It’s incredible. Alain and his wife Claudia were cool from the start and we were very excited for this event ever since they reserved our DJ services.
Aesthetically, we brought in some cool design elements to enhance the event space. We did up-lighting design along the walls that faded and changed colors throughout the night and our trademark glowing DJ booth. Everything else came down to just fun music and a guest list made up of only people that know how to have a good time.
Musically, we spanned pretty much every genre. When guests were walking in and mingling during cocktail hour and dinner we kept an upbeat and trendy vibe going to give that “NYC Lounge” feel. After that, we kicked it up a notch with some older rock (Rolling Stones, etc) and mixed into some current music. As the dancing progressed, we slipped into some “oldschool 90’s hip-hop” (think: Jump Around, Push It, Ice Ice Baby, It Takes Two, etc.) and kept the groove going for the rest of night.
Everyone was just incredible, our hosts were two of the most down to earth, fun-loving people you’ll ever meet, and it was an absolute honor to be able to share this day with them.
