We are super excited to join Style Me Pretty’s exclusive Little Black Book in 2014. It’s an honor to be considered one of the “best of the best” by such a prominent tastemaker in the wedding landscape.
But don’t worry, it won’t get to our heads. It’s our awesome music & client-focused philosophy that got us there in the first place. And speaking of which, time to listen to more music & answer emails!
It’s about that time during the year when those new year’s resolutions of hitting the gym start to wane a bit (trust me I know). And for the summer and fall brides (and grooms) looking to tone up and look good in their respective garb, I’ve got your back!
Welcome to the 1st volume of my new workout music mix series titled “60 Minute Sweat Session”! Each mix will be approximately 60 minutes long and has a ~8-10 minute warm up & warm down section with the rest powering you through that peak calorie burning period. Volume 1 features some of my favorite pop, dance, & electro remixes from the past year as well as a well timed throwback here and there. If there’s a song you want to hear in the next volume, feel free to send me requests or tweet them @remixologists! Enjoy!

One more oldie but goodie from the archives! We’ve known Mike for many years from our college days at the great University of Pennsylvania. It was an honor to spin Mike & Grace’s One Atlantic wedding in the heart of the Atlantic City boardwalk. The wedding was also featured in Brides Magazine which you can check out here. Thanks for the kind words!
Thank you for coming and being our emcee and DJ for the wedding. You and Simon did an amazing job and really made the whole day really special. The songs brought us back to college. We also appreciate your gift to help us get our new life started. You will always have two dinner/karaoke buddies anytime you are in NYC.
One of our favorites from 2013 had to be Julianne & Nick’sLaurita Winery wedding in New Jersey. Not only was it featured on Style Me Pretty, I’ve listened to Mike rave about the energy of the crowd & the rug cutting on the dance floor and read the same from the bride’s thank you letter. And well… pictures don’t lie!

Holidays are a big deal for my family. As is the case with many families, we are all so busy and spread out geographically that it’s tough to get everyone together in one place. I especially love spending time with my nieces and nephews, despite the fact that each year they get bigger and bigger making me feel older and older. And nothing makes me feel older than listening to their music with them. Full disclosure – I’ve started spending more time tuned into the “Oldies” stations because, well, they’re starting to play more and more of the music I grew up with.
This year was no different. I sat down with my niece and let her choose the music for a while. Since I’d vetoed Bieber and One Direction before we even started (much to her chagrin), she played Jason Derulo’s “Marry Me,” and quickly followed it up with one of my personal favorites, Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are.”
In keeping with the theme of love songs, I played Brian Mcknight’s “One Last Cry,” and was appalled when she did not know it. I followed it up with Vanessa Williams’ “Save the Best for Last.” Sadly, she’d never heard that song either.
From the sad melodies of the lover’s lament songs to the suggestive lyrics of the smooth seduction songs, there’s nothing that showcases the many complexities of love quite like old-school R&B. This is the stuff middle and high school dances were made of.
When I sat down to record this mix, I just had to play out these songs in their entirety, because I felt that if I cut out the bridge, I’d often be cutting out the best (not to mention the most emotional) parts of the songs. Also, I wanted to record something that would remind my older listeners of the mixtapes we used to put together using a cassette and the radio to give to that special someone. Regardless of whether you know all of the songs or none of them, I hope everyone enjoys listening to this mix. One suggestion if I may – the mix is a lot better when you share it with someone you love.
