Jackie & Kevin @ Metro Club

Hello All: This past Saturday Night I was at my favorite Cleveland venue: The Metro Club (A Sammy's Venue) which is located on the 21st Floor of the Huntington Building. This room has a great vibe and a great view. I'm a huge fan of the black carpet ad over sized black chairs. Very classy. This wedding was spectacular. The bride was the sister of a past client of mine and the groom Kevin comes from a HUGE family. All and All the event was perfect.

Here are the details of this shin-dig.

Date: Saturday May 8Th, 2010.

Florist: Bernie from Grande Designs
DJ: Scott E. Jones (me) - Jerry Bruno Productions
Memorable Moment(s): Okay, I can't seem to limit this to a single moment for any event. So here are my top two favorite moments at Jackie & Kevin's wedding. 1. The bride & groom's first dance performed live by the groom's niece. (see pic below). Taylor has a beautiful voice and really nailed the song. Fantastic! #2. The bride had arranged a surprise for most all of her guests (and Kevin). She hired The Ohio State University Alumni Marching Band (Cleveland Chapter) to surprise the groom and all of her guests near the end of dinner. This really helped get the party started and was truly enjoyed by all of the crazy Buckeye fans in attendance. Please check out the quick video clip below.

Randi + Adam @ Windows.

Hello All: This past weekend was a nice "double-header".

Friday Night started off with a benefit event for "Motz Run" at Pazzo's Grand Ballroom (the latest Sammy's venue). The Motz Run was to help fight cancer. The Chinese auction and 50/50 raffle raised big money (I think & hope). It's good to give back once in a while. It was great to be a part of such a worthy cause. I'm glad I am able to donate my time & services when I can. I'm sorry there are no pics of this event, but there was way more spending money and way less dancing at this event. Which was a good thing!

Saturday Night took me to a familiar venue, Windows. I had a great time DJ'ing for Randi and Adam. They make a picture perfect couple. If you don't believe me, just be sure to check the Linczak Photography blog for updates. The wedding was amazing. I had the honor of providing music for all of the elements. From the ceremony music to the last dance of the night, my Bose L1 DJ rig was a superstar and their guests rocked the dance floor.

Here are the details of the event:

Date: Saturday May 1st, 2010
Venue: Windows on The River (Cityview Room)

DJ: Me, myself and I - Scott E. Jones (Jerry Bruno Productions)
Memorable Moment(s): I think I really need to start narrowing this category down to a single moment for each event. So here is the first go at this newly instated rule: The most memorable moment of the whole wedding was actually at the end of the night. I always play a follow up - last dance song at half-volume while I'm starting my break down process, just to give the guests some "exiting" music. This night was no different, but the response was. Per a request, I played "Like A Prayer" by Madonna. It was awesome! All the bridesmaids, close friends and beautiful bride got out on the dance floor and sang there buts off. It was a great way to end the night!
