Ally & Matt’s Hotel Monaco Wedding In Alexandria!

No Comments Real Weddings By: mike

When Ally and Matt first booked with us, I (DJ Mike) already knew that their wedding was going to be a blast.  Their reception was going to be held at the Hotel Monaco in Virginia, a location that combined the historic charm and lively culture of Old Town Alexandria.  Before the wedding, Ally and Matt told me that their family and friends all love to dance, but little did I know just how crazy the dance party was going to be!  We ended up shuffling around the schedule and having the cake cutting earlier in the evening, since many guests were getting restless during dinner and wanted to get the party started as soon as possible.  (Of course, I was more than happy to oblige!)

And once the party started, it never ended.  DJ 9-Volt and I rocked a mix of Motown, funk, top 40,  90’s hip hop, Michael Jackson, and Madonna, and we even threw down Call Me Maybe twice (at the bride’s request, of course).  The bridesmaids were well-prepared and were dancing in flip-flops for most of the evening, and many of the guests were wiping sweat off their brows by the time we were playing the last song of the evening…definitely signs of a great party and a successful evening!

Tristan (9-Volt) makes his debut in the FAN MAIL with a BANG!  He and I (Taiga) helped Richard & Jennifer celebrate their wedding the old fashioned way with a 10 course Chinese banquet meal followed by an INTENSE dance party at Mudan Banquet Hall in Flushing!  Check out their gracious words!

Congrats again Richard & Jenn!

To the Remixologists:

YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!
:) thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you :)

From the day we contacted you about DJ-ing, to the day of our wedding, you were truly wonderful to work with and made planning for the music at our reception so easy!  Thank you for being so organized and for always reaching out to us to get all the details just right.

Throughout the celebration, everything was executed so smoothly, on-time, and exactly to our taste!  We could not have asked for more.  And the dance mix… it was AMAZING!!! We had SO MUCH FUN celebrating on the dance floor with our friends and family.  Even the parents were having a blast!  The music was non-stop goodness.  Thank you for all your hard work and for sharing your talent with us!  Our wedding day would not have been the same without you!

<3 Richard & Jennifer

Food, Drink, & Music! Our Contribution To The Taiwanese (TAP) Night Market!

1 Comment Events, Press By: taiga

The Remixologists love representing for our cities and cultures.  So when our friends at TAP NY (Taiwanese American Professionals) asked us at the start of the year to provide the music for their first annual night market, we of course said YES… and that was before we were told about the UNLIMITED FOOD & TAIWAN BEER!  Well, the sold out event (folks were scalping tickets on Craigslist!)  this past April had over 500 attendees and went off CRAZY!

We spun a 4 hour set playing off the vibe of the crowd covering everything from Michael Jackson, Hall & Oates, Keane, Chromeo, Rihanna, and everything in between.  Everybody had a great time and I definitely saw more than a few folks with glazed ‘food coma’ eyes from downing all the delicious food and drinks.

And true story, I recently got a call from Hong Kong Street Cart (one of the food vendors from the night) asking if we could make them some mixes for their upcoming pop-up markets.  Maybe I can parlay that into a year’s supply of buns & bubble teas… hmm… definitely going to try and make this happen.  :)

In the meantime, click on the picture up above to read more about the event and below for the mouth watering recap (look for my photobomb!) from The Village Voice Blogs.  And if prefer moving visuals, check out the short video recap below featuring the music and a quick cameo from DJ Taiga.

Jeanne & Sean’s Baltimore Wedding Featured On United With Love!

No Comments Press, Real Weddings By: 9-volt

Weddings are always more fun when you know a few of the guests.  They are especially fun when the people you know: a) love to dance, and b) remember you as the nerdy kid from high school.  That’s exactly what happened when I (9-Volt) handled Jeanne and Sean’s wedding this past January.  I’ve known Jeanne since we were in elementary school together on Guam, and I was ecstatic when she asked me to DJ her wedding.  Not only did I get to show off my skills in front of some old friends, but I was able to sprinkle in some island classics.

The George Peabody Library was amazing – it felt like I was in the Beauty and the Beast library, and I was half tempted to drop the Celine Dion/Peabo Bryson classic for the hell of it. In the end, I settled for the Percolator, seeing as how we were on the John’s Hopkins campus and the crowd was itching for some good Baltimore Club Music.

It’s an honor to have participated in this wedding and now it’s been featured on United We Love!  Click on the picture above or HERE to read more about the wedding!

And 축하합니다, 누나!!! Literally translated, “chuka hamnida, noo-nah” or “congratulations, big sister!”
