The original plan was for this to return to an in-person event for 2021. Unfortunately, as we entered into the fall months it became evident that it would shift to virtual for the second year in a row. We were brought in again to produce the entire show. What goes into a live stream production? Video equipment, video, and audio encoding, graphic overlays. It's very similar to TV production and a lot different than when I DJ events. Check out some behind-the-scenes photos and a video of the entire broadcast.
Okay, I admit. I'm a bit delayed in getting this on the blog. But, better late than never...am I right? 🙂 Kaylin and Sean had an amazing 2020 wedding planned. Then, Covid. Like so many others we pivoted. We found a new date in 2021 and kept our fingers crossed. Well, thankfully, it happened! And, it was everything I had pictured for these two beautiful souls. I mean, what a party!
If you haven't been to Sebasco Harbor Resort before, do yourself a favor and just go! Graydon and Jessica treated their guests to an amazing property filled with a phenomenal ceremony and stunning oceanfront ceremony. These two (and their friends) know how to party! What an amazing reception, check out the highlights.
Introducing the social booth! Some call it a selfie booth, but whatever you call it know this: it's a lot of fun! How is it different from the photo booths I've always offered? This is a digital kiosk offering still photos, GIFs & boomerangs. After choosing the type of session you want to have you can apply digital props and filters. Think Instagram or Snapchat. After your session is complete simply text or email your images. It's that simple! Best of all, it's incredibly affordable!
It's Labor Day weekend which means we're straight out busy! I love it. Saturday, I partied in Rangeley with Will and Mallory and on Sunday I was in Saco partying with Ryan and Alex. This was my first time DJ'ing at River Winds Farm and Estate and my first impression? Wow! What a phenomenal property. Check this one out.
While taking a day trip with my family in the Spring of 2021, I happened to meet Nate, the owner of Mountain Star Estate. As fate would have it, I would be at his property in September to celebrate with Will and Mallory. Nate offered us a private tour (gorgeous by the way) and I couldn't wait to be back at the property for a wedding. Will and Mallory's ceremony and reception was next level. Check it out.
With Covid restrictions recently lifted for outdoor events, we returned to "normal" with the audio/visual production for York High School's graduation ceremony. We deployed a full front of house stage sound system with delayed stacks and 8 channels of wireless ULXD microphones. Afterwards, we provided laser tag and DJ services for their project graduation.
Wow, what a ride it has been. 2020 was rough but thankfully, we are getting back to work and hopefully we can soon put Covid in the rearview mirror.
A huge shout out to Amy at Lisbon High School for working tirelessly to make Prom 2021 happen for the students at LHS. While it certainly wasn't. . .
Jocelyn and Casey were SO close to celebrating their wedding in 2020 but, thanks to Covid, they had to postpone. Well, fast-forward a year and here we are! They might have waited an additional year but they certainly partied accordingly. Take a look at the highlight video from Fox & Sparrow Films to see for yourself! Such an amazing wedding.
Well, Covid shows no signs of going away.. So, here we are. Another streaming production! This time for our good friends over in Auburn, Maine at Central Maine Community College. Under normal circumstances this event is hosted at the Ramada Inn with a 300+ person crowd.
What could go wrong? Is insurance all that important? I've been in the event industry for over 20 years and while I've never had an instance where insurance has come into play I am a firm believer that every vendor your hire for your event should have business insurance. Here's why.
Recently engaged and searching for a wedding DJ? This is an amazing resource to help you understand what DJs in Maine charge. I dive into things to consider when reviewing pricing and provide a price guide on what you can expect as you search for the best wedding DJ.
Searching for the best wedding videographer in Maine? With over 20 years in the wedding industry, I've worked alongside a lot of videography companies. I've put together a list of the videographers that I absolutely love to work with. Their films are amazing, the quality of their work is phenomenal and I think you'd be well served by any of them!
Here it is, another live workout mix! As Maine DJs we cannot stress the importance of mixing music to provide an uninterrupted soundtrack. It sets the tone for your event and helps bring the energy to another level. Have a listen and let me know what you think!
