Event: 12th Annual San Diego Spirits Festival
Location: Port Pavilion - Broadway Pier - San Diego, CA
Music: Lounge, Feel-Good, Funk, Modern, HipHop, Remixes
I have been waiting 2 years to DJ the Spirits Fest once again! After taking a year off, the 2-day festival was back in full force. Guests enjoyed different booths offering their own special cocktails and spirits. Beautiful performers came to entertain the crowd with Samba dancing, belly dancing, and some very sexy burlesque. A rock band played outside over looking the bay while I kept the vibe going on the inside. I didn't expect people to dance but they sure did! Be sure to get your tickets for next year, see you there!

Jessica and Johnny looked absolutely stunning on their special day. It was a lovely evening at the Castle. The top lawn was setup with lawn games and a VW bus photobooth and the lower area was beautifully setup for dinner. This was a strictly no dancing wedding however there was no dull moment. We had speeches, a karaoke performance, a piano and singing performance, a trivia game, a slideshow, cake cutting, and garter and bouquet tosses. By the end of the night, the guests still weren't ready to leave, lol. Congratulations you two!

Anna and Paul are the two of the cutest love birds in San Diego. They were married a few days before the reception but still made vows and exchanged beautiful words in front of their guests. A very talented guitarist played to the guests for cocktail hour. Dinner was accompanied by some mellow ambient house and we shifted to some rock and 80's for a bit of dancing. It was a perfect evening in San Diego and an amazing day to celebrate with friends and family.

Bethany threw an awesome party for their biotech company, Equillium. Guests enjoyed some 90's R&B while interacting with the aquarium's wildlife as the sunset over the ocean. We brought it inside for a beautiful buffet dinner and finished strong dancing to old school and today's top hits. What a cool place for a party! Thanks for having me Bethany!

There is nothing better than DJing for your friends! Aaron and ShanShan have been a lovely couple for years and decided to finally tie the knot. The newlyweds both looked absolutely stunning from their hair down to their fancy shoes. Aaron performed a perfect sabering to kick off the festivities. We enjoyed brunch, danced, and toasted our love to the beautiful couple. Thank for letting me be a part of your big day!

It was a perfect day in San Diego for Caitlin and John's big day. They had their beautiful ceremony outside. Due to some road construction and cars backed way up, the couple got a symphony of honks, hoots and hollers once they were pronounced husband and wife, it was pretty awesome. Once we moved inside for the reception, the party was on with an open bar, gourmet dinner, amazing toasters, and a jamming dance floor. Cheers to the beautiful newlyweds!

Tara and Mike are a genuine couple full of love and beauty. Their reception was small but absolutely perfect. Everything from the city view to the tropical floral to the couple's amazing guests made this a wedding to remember. We danced to the very end then officially sent the newlyweds off into their new lives. It was a pleasure to DJ this wedding. Congratulations you two!

Teddie and Andrew were the sweetest, kindest, awesomest couple to work with! The wedding was small but powerful and full of so much love. It was a perfect day looking over the bay as guests enjoyed their drinks, street tacos, and the dance floor. While some came and went, a few dancing queens stuck with me on the dance floor the whole night. Teddie said it made her heart feel full of joy <3 Thank you again for having me! Cheers to the newlyweds!

Gabrielle and Sam are just the coolest couple ever! Their connection started with music (Sam rocks in a band) which only grew stronger from there. They provided me with over 10 hours of music for their 5.5 hour wedding! Haha, and probably 2 hours of it was straight punk rock! We ended up rocking that venue and it was great! The guests were so much fun, the venue was amazing, the couple was gorgeous, it was definitely a wedding to remember!

It's been over 2 years since I had the pleasure of DJing at the Coyote! I didn't even look up until 5 minutes into DJing to discover a completely packed dance floor and a huge line of people waiting around the building. The drinks were flowing, music videos were playing, and booties were shaking all around! Everyone was just happy to be out and party like we used to. It was wonderful to be back!

What a perfect day for an outdoor San Diego wedding. Every detail was beautiful from the scenery, to the flowers, to the deserts, and of course to the stunning couple. The vibes and energy of the evening were so full love and positivity. We cried, danced, and celebrated the couple with pure happiness. For me, this was an incredible way to come back to weddings after being on pause for so long. Thank you Jessica and Jared and all of your guests! <3

The gorgeous Viviana and her awesome husband George had several reasons to throw a party Saturday night. They had recently been married, purchased an incredible house, and wanted to celebrate life with their friends and family. This party had it all! Beautiful bartenders serving top-shelf, delicious catering, chef's in the kitchen (being filmed for a traveling TV series), a viewing of the most incredible destination wedding in the Bahamas, a dope DJ (that was me), and an amazing crowd of people. I was thrilled to be a part of this event, sharing good vibes and energy.

Treasure and her superhero family decided to throw the neighborhood a much needed backyard bash and what a better night than Halloween? The backyard was decked out head to toe with an amazing pirate theme, complete with a haunted entrance. The guests danced, the kids jumped, the Halloweeners limboed and everyone had one rockin' Halloween!

Saturday was the best pickelball birthday a girl could ask for. It was an athletic outdoor competition to celebrate Heather's 42nd, even some pros joined in! With nightclubs currently closed, Heather wanted rock out to all the new jams, which I was happy to provide. After filling up on some delicious street tacos, the crew decided to extend the party another hour. It was a wonderful celebration.

Dayanara put together a beautiful backyard surprise party for her friend Patty. She went all out with a Mexican candy bar, a delicious Mediterranean dinner, a bar tender, and of course me as the DJ! The guests were awesome and so much fun, just dancing and enjoying life. It was a great experience after sitting out the last 5 months, I look forward to more!

The beautiful party-planning Chanel had the amazing idea to throw a North County party for near-by residents to dress up and go dancing like it was downtown San Diego. She reserved a spot at the O-side Museum of Art during an awesome Sidewalk Art Exhibit. Guests showed up in their most fashionable black outfits (except for that bride who had just gotten married across the street, rightfully so). Everything was cool from the people to the art, drinks, and mini bites. We had the dance floor cooking until the very end. The plan is to make this a regular thing for North County! We hope you can join us for the next one!

This gig at Rich's was a milestone for both DJ Staci and I in our DJ careers. It was our first time using USB sticks and Rekordbox with the club standard Pioneer CDJs. We both prepped like crazy and it payed off. We were thrilled to be there and both sets were hot! We look forward to returning one day. Thanks DJ Elevate for hooking us up and DJ Danny for helping me prep! <3

What a super cool spot and place to be on a Sunday! The Grill was packed with several events to keep everyone happy and entertained. On this Sunday alone the bar featured a drag show, 2 DJs (me and Heabnasty!), plus had an Academy Awards screening. The rain held out for a beautiful day. I pulled out all of my favorite tunes and I felt the crowd vibing with me all day long. Thanks Gossip Grill, I can't wait to do it again!
