Christmas Eve Bowling!

Hello All: Today Denise and I took the boys to Freeway Lanes in Parma. It was a surprise "fun" trip for the boys. We all had a great time. Thank God for bumper bowling! We all played two games and the strange thing is, both Mason & I matched our scores from the previous games. It was pretty weird. Maddox is a "slow" bowler. After he would push the ball down the lane, he would have enough time walk back the chairs, climb up on the chair, sit down, eat a chip, grab a drink and then look back....just as the ball was hitting the pins. According to the bowling alley scoreboard Maddox was tossing his ball down the lane at the supersonic speeds of 1.15 miles per hour. They are already asking to go back again! - Time to get ready to hang with the family this Christmas Eve. - Be Well. Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas! Some pics:

The Scoreboard!

Denise - Mason & Maddox - Smile!

All of us. - Thanks for the nice lady bowling at Lane 6!

Bonfiglio - Hinz Wedding @ City Club on 12-20-08

Hello All: This past Saturday (burr it was cold) I had the pleasure of dj'ing for a fellow NOHS (North Olmsted High School) grad. Anne Bonfiglio (nohs) and Nathan Hinz said their "I Do's" at St. Johns downtown and then headed straight to the City Club for their impressive reception. I had their entire reception of 200 dancing from the first song I played. It was a great way to end the 2008 Wedding Season. I had such a great time working with the entire staff at the City Club and Scott from Easywind Studio's in Lakewood. He was a great guy to work with, easy to talk to and easy to work with. I'm sure I will run into him again! - Here are two very bad iphone quality pics of my set up and the head table area. Boy, I really need to invest in a new camera! Happy Holidays Everyone!

Santa Stopped By.....already!

Hello All: Today Santa Clause (with the help of the local Valley View Fire Department) stopped by our house today to start the gift giving. Santa Clause delivered a couple of sweet gifts for Mason & Maddox. Maddox got 10 new hot wheels cars and Mason got a new Transformers guy. They were in "aww". - I love the looks on their faces and hesitation as Santa approached. Christmas is only 5 days away. Here we come Christmas morning! Happy Holidays!

Zrenda - McNair wedding @ The Union Club on 12-12-08

Hello All: Last night (YAY - I love Friday Weddings) I DJ'ed at one of the best looking rooms in the city: The Union Club's thrid floor ballroom is amazing, very old world. It's super elegant and "warm". The parties (and food) are always 100% perfect. Last night was no different. Katie Zarenda and Thomas Scott McNair gathered this Holiday Season with 255 of their bestest friends & family for a great night of drinking, dancing and parting. It was a fantastic night. Check out the pictures below. I'm off tonight due to a corporate cancellation (darn this economy), but I think my body & mind is in need of a rest. Time to do some x-mas shopping. Stay warm!
Here is a cool pic of the cake table & dance floor. I love how my "BOSE" blends right into the back of the room almost completely hidden. The "BOSE" rocks in many ways!
Here is a picture of the view as you walk into the ballroom from the pre-function/bar area. Awesome!
One of the best parts of the Union Club is this VERY rare dance floor. None of the guests realize it has led lights built in to the floor until the switch is flipped 30 seconds into their first dance song and the "oohs and aahs" from friends and family fill the room. Very cool!
Here is every DJ's favorite kind of pic. It's a full dance floor! Again, you can see the LED dance floor and it looks like the guests are dancing on the stars! The dance floor was packed until the end of the night. It was awesome!
CONGRATS KATIE & TOM!

Sholtis - Mehta Wedding @ The Bertram on 12-6-08

Hello All: Tonight I had the pleasure of DJ'ing for a wonderful couple. Christine Sholtis & Dr. Niishit Mehta recited their vows and had an intimate reception with 90 of their closest friends & family at the Bertram Inn & Conference Center. They used the atrium for the ceremony and the Garfield Room for their cocktail hour and reception. I also had the pleasure of working with Pixer Productions for the first time. Tony (from Pixer) is a great guy, I can't wait to see his finished product. The wedding photographers were Wes & Lisa McGraw from Z-Media. Below is a dark pic of my Bose Rig all set up...I need a better camera!


The Cavs go 11-0 at home.

Hello All: Denise and I spoiled ourselves last night with a trip to the "Q". The Cavs defeated the Pacers 97-73 and made it 11-0 at home. We are on a roll. Twice a year we head down to the Cavs game and get some sweet seats. It's a bit pricey, but well worth it for just a couple of games a year. We had a blast but we were bummed we did not score any free loot from the taco bell ball toss, free shirts from the scream team or the famous "hotdog wrapped in a shirt" shot out of Moon-Dawg's shoulder cannon. Maybe next time! - Here are a couple of pics! I'm off to my Bertram Wedding tonight. Oh yeah, it was "Anderson Varejao Wig Night"and Denise did not want her picture taken - Good Fun!
