Behind the DJ Booth was recently invited to attend a wedding industry event at Colleen Kaufman's home to celebrate her newly launched re-brand (CAKE Event Company) as well as meet and mingle with other wedding industry professionals. The event took place in Colleen's' back yard and included a diverse mix of wedding industry professionals including photographers, florists, make up artists and wedding coordinators.
The event started at 11a and ended at 1:30p. Michael arrived at 9:30a to set up. The guests in attendance are all industry professionals who have heard numerous DJ's play music . They've heard it all! Knowing that, the goal was to play music that would not be the typical music they hear every single weekend. The genres played ranged from Indie Rock, Alternative, French pop, R&B/Soul remixes, Jazz funk, Jazzy Hip-Hop.
This event was for mingling and networking and the playlist created the ambiance conducive for exactly that. There were no ups (high up beat songs- like dance music) and downs (slower hip-hop - like Jay-Z or Drake) in the overall musical experience, but a constant flow. Each song from different genres meshed with each other. None overpowered the conversions that were had or were too memorable where the guests started singing along.
At Behind the DJ Booth we pride ourselves in knowing exactly how to match the style of music played for the event type and ambiance desired. Most DJ's don't take the time and effort to really understand what is needed for every event in order to make it the best event possible. It was awesome to attend this event put on by Colleen and help create an environment through music that everyone could enjoy! Enjoy some photos from the day and vendors are listed below!
