I worked a private party tonight @ The Skylofts Gallery. This is a place I have been wanting to DJ since 2008 when I first learned about this location. This was where myself and the Baltimore Rock Opera Society rehearsed our very first show Grundlehammer. The owner’s (Eric) daughter (Emily) was cast opposite of me, and he kindly allowed us (being a newly born company with no home base at the time) to rehearse there.
The space is immensely versatile, containing numerous galleries and lofts that can be used for exhibits, private parties, theater/dance/music rehearsals, corporate meetings, benefits, seminars, or artist spaces. I highly suggest checking this place out if you are in need of a space for any of the things I previously mentioned. Eric is easy going, reasonable, cooperative, and will assist you in finding the perfect space within his building for whatever your needs are. You can contact him through their website portal here.
Anyway, like I said I always wanted to DJ in one of their lofts, and finally the opportunity presented itself in an after wedding party. Not a reception, mind you, but just a party for those desiring to congratulate the happy couple. It was a blast, everyone danced their asses off all night (they were having so much fun, they asked me to spin an extra hour!), and I think I made a few networking connections that could materialize a few future gigs. Crossed fingers.
Below are some cool pics that were snapped from a wedding I performed at recently at Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum. What a great experience it was! Although it was outdoors on an incredibly hot that day, the venue was breathtaking. I was inside this beautifully rustic barn that housed a number of pieces of antique farming equipment. The bride and groom and their guests were extremely nice and their taste in music was right in my wheelhouse. You can also check out a review they gave me on my Customer Review Page at the bottom in the comments section.Thanks for the great review, Leslie!
Recently I DJ’ed alongside the exciting and super talented PBJamz @ Joe Squared. If you haven’t been to a PBJamz show, I highly recommend it. They do excellent live instrumental covers of rap and pop songs. If you haven’t been to Joe Squared, then you are missing out there too. Their pizza is ridiculously delicious and with more options than Missy’s shoe closet, you are bound to find a combo that will tickle your fancy. The pictures below are courtesy of Britt Olsen-Ecker, one of the PBJamz band members. Go there are check out her superb work.
I’ll be making my Metro Gallery debut next Saturday, February 9th along side DJ Aran Keating for an event that celebrates the Chinese New Year. This is awesome because I have desired doing a set in that space for some time now. Looking forward to a good time.
Well, wedding season is over and that means it time to start doing more house parties and clubs!
On December 22nd, I’ll be playing at this local basement hot spot called The Pentagon for their “Rockin’ For The Future” Post-Mayan Apocalypse Party along with some great bands and an incredibly talented hip hop duo called AK Slaughter for whom I’m producing a club track for. Hopefully, it’s finished and we can premiere it that night. Fingers crossed.
Come check this out, because I guarantee that I’m gonna make it sweaty, sweet, and a loud.
I’m just getting started making my new website and will have all of the information and media available ASAP. Please be patient.
