Seattle Wedding at Alexis Hotel

Alexis Hotel Wedding DJ Seattle Music Masters lesbian same sex

One of the many great things about the legalizing of same sex marriage in Washington is that we’ve become a destination wedding site for many same sex couples. I can’t begin to tell you how happy it makes me to work with all of these couples who finally have the right to marry! Continue reading

Holy Crap New from The Grouch!

The Grouch & Eligh

I love when I hear people complain about the current state of hip hop. This only happens because they’re limiting themselves to what’s being pushed by the mainstream. The truth is that the current state of hip hop is FANTASTIC!

Why? Because of people like The Grouch. Keeping with the Pacific Northwest style of upbeat, positive music and lyrics, this new song, All In, is my feel good song of the year!

This was requested at a wedding I played back in February at 1927 Events in downtown Seattle and I nearly pooped myself when I saw it on the request list. It went over SO well and the staff loved it, too! Check it out!

New Music from Augustines!


Now, you know I’m a music geek. I’m also kind of a locavore, so I really geek out when I find great new music that’s also local.

Enter the new album from Seattle band Augustines, formerly We Are Augustines. I first heard this on KEXP in October and they dragged out the release FOREVER!

Well, it’s finally out and you need this! Really, you need it!

DJ Set From C89.5

The past week I’ve been going through a lot of the deep, dark corners of my music database. What I have here is a set that I played on C89.5 a few years ago. It was a pretty awesome opportunity to play this show since playing mobile events can be a little musically restricting. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing, but I do have tons of music that will probably never see the light of day and this was a rare opportunity to play some of my favorite tunes.

This rides the line between progressive house and trance and is pretty high energy throughout. Enjoy!
