As we begin the new year we are starting strong, already having provided our DJ, Photo Both, and uplighting at over 5 events this year, we have had 3 weddings, 1 2016 Quinceanera and 1 corporate event.
2016 is a great year so for.
Our blogging has also increased a little bit, I have 2 blogs Top 2015 Requested Songs and a New DJ Review this year. This is a strong start to 2016 along with a very strong end in 2015, we are able to provide our services to some great people these past few months.
The First 2016 Quinceanera
This past Saturday was our very first Quinceanera of 2016, and it was a blast. A lot of dancing and a lot of fun for the guests.
The not-so Grand Vista Event Venue in Pasadena
The venue, one which I would NOT recommend for parties especially Quinceaneras or Weddings bringing in a band, for various reasons, the main one is that the police will come and shut down your party if you can hear the volume at 50 feet outside the reception area. The place is https://www.facebook.com/TheGrandVista/ and if you read their negative reviews (UPDATE 2.27.2017: The Grand Vista has removed their FB Page), including mine, you will see that this place has a history of calling the police on their clients as to bring down the volume of the music. No explanation, other than keep down the music. END RANT
The Fun Part of the Quinceanera
Ok, now to the more positive events of the night…
There was a little bit of everything that night, Valet Folklorico Alegria Mexicana, High Energy dances, and a great choreography by the quinceanera herself.
There was an expectancy of 500 guests and there was a lot more than that, with a wait outside of around 30 minutes. Everyone whom they knew showed up and more.
And for great reason, this was a PARTY in every sense of the word.
Our set up this evening was for 300 guests, knowing ahead of time that the owner said we could not turn it up “too loud” but didn’t really specify what was too loud.

2016 Quinceanera Dancing
And the party was a huge success with a lot of dancing, the dance floor was packed all night long with a great combination of modern music to some of the classic latino songs. All in all everyone had a great time, I even got a text on Monday from the father of the Quinceanera thanking me again for helping them create a fun night for them.
Our music varied and was perfectly timed to go from genre to genre without losing a lot of dancers due to the changes in music:
Overall, this was a great event, with a lot of dancing and a lot of people enjoying and celebrating the night for our lovely quinceanera and her family.
I even did some live snapchats from within the event: Snapchat me at: simplyfrank77 to join us in our next party!!
