Uncorked Wine Festival San Diego with Best Event DJ

I was excited to be contacted from my San Diego DJ website by Michelle who booked me to DJ at the Uncorked Wine Festival in San Diego.

The event took place on a sunny and beautiful Saturday afternoon at Embarcadero North Park with more than 3000 people in attendance. There were over 80 wines and tasting stations set up throughout the park with 100 wine varieties to taste.

The stage, which eventually the crowed wanted on dance on, was set up in front of a large grassy area. San Diego’s best event DJ  😀 started out the event with playing reggae and chill vibes and slowly built up to dance music as the wine happy crowd filled in and began dancing.

San Diego Photographer Bradley Schweit was on site to capture all the fun in the sun. Check out a few pictures below:

San Diego Electronic Dance Music DJ at Halloween party 

IMG_1186Last weekend I got the opportunity to DJ in San Diego at a daytime event called hoppy Halloween at SILO quarter in downtown.

The other San Diego DJ booked to play could not make it, so that meant my set time was extended by an hour and I would need to bring my own mobile DJ equipment.

No problem!

I set up on the stage, covered from the sun, and plugged into a larger sound system.  Unfortunately the sun took a turn and started melting my Serato DJ control vinyl records like hot cakes.  Regardless of this unfortunate circumstance my two hour set went off without a glitch.  I slowly built the afternoon vibe with deep funky house, disco trippy sounds and groovy bass lines. It was awesome to hear my beats on a larger sound system.  The MC gave me shout outs while making announcements and even pointed out that I was playing turntables and vinyl records.

 

San Diego DJ in a Secret Room

“We are going to lock you in here,” said the owner of the venue as he handed me the keys and his staff positioned the air conditioning unit that had just arrived. I had been asked to set up my turntables in a small hidden room located past the restrooms, through a few doors and down a long corridor. No one was going to find me here, not ABC and especially not the audience of 200 people for whom I would be DJ’ing for the next 4 hours.

Due to a miscommunication with the event planning no live music performance was going to be legally tolerable. Unless of course it was impossible to find where the live music was coming from.

By the time the air conditioner showed up I was already an hour into the set and had made the decision that this was going to be a mega mix. I would try to play as many songs as possible to keep myself entertained. Usually I don’t like to do this because I think that many DJ’s mix songs too quickly and don’t let their audience fully enjoy each song.

There are advantages to DJ’ing from a locked room away from the audience. There are no distractions, just my art and a lot of silly dancing. No requests, no audience feedback, no people coming up just to chat about whatever. This is somewhat similar to being a lonesome bedroom DJ but then totally different when you know there is a huge crowd listening to the mix.

Over the 4 hour set I had the occasional visitor to my secret DJ closet, the event and venue staff telling me that it was sounding great. The manager of the venue shared that a few guests had inquired where the music was coming from. Overall the event was a success and a one of a kind experience that I hope never happens again when I DJ in San Diego.

Thank you to Pacific San Diego Magazine and their awesome staff for always having me out to play their events!
