Sparkle Lounge 2013 – Ronald Reagan Building

Monday, January 14th, 2013

The Ronald Reagan Building’s annual Sparkle Lounge is the perfect opportunity to catch up with wedding industry friends and network with event professionals around the DC region.  The event was truly amazing and we were honored to have Chris Laich Music Services provide the music again this year! 

The Ronald Reagan’s Atrium Ballroom, which is already a spectacular space, “wowed” guests with the incredible decor, food, champagne and of course great soundtrack!  Approximately 1,000 people attended this year.  It was great to see people mingling throughout the space.

DC Photographer, Stephen Bobb was there and captured the night with some incredible images.  Flowers and decor provided by by Elegance & Simplicty.

Purses for Power – National Arthritis Foundation Charity Event

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

We were really proud when Chris Laich Music Services was asked to participate in the first annual DC Purses with Power charity event to benefit the Arthritis Foundation.  The event took place on November 8, 2012 at the modern Haworth Showroom at Terrell Place (Penn Quarter, DC).  The night featured a silent auction, led by host Omarosa Manigault.  Omarosa did a fantastic job encouraging attendees to purchase auction items, which included designer purses, jewelry, and a special makeover sponsored by Paul Wharton from WDCW DC50tv.

Washingtonian Best of Party – 2012!

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

2012’s Best of Washingtonian party was just over a week ago and boy was it a doozy! We’re so proud Chris Laich Music Services was asked to deejay such an amazing event again. Not only is it a great time, but the proceeds go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which is something we can definitely get behind!

This year, Jamie Sears and her team at Simply Chic Events planned the whole affair, and they did an incredible job. With over 2000 attendees, 50 restaurants, décor, and all the nitty-gritty details that go along with them, this is one event that takes not just skill but also some serious serenity to execute. And Simply Chic did so in their trademark phenomenal fashion!

See the entire carnival-themed event (and all the amazing food, drink, and vendors) in the Washingtonian’s Best of 2012 gallery.

Staff Party at The Fairmont Hotel

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

For the past four years, Chris Laich Music Services has had the pleasure of deejaying the Fairmont Hotel’s staff party. Since The Fairmont is our favorite spot in DC and we love working with Bob Mikolitch, Mark Medrick and their staff, it’s really great to see them relaxing at their own party.

However, the 2012 party was extra-amazing. With the recent remodel of their lobby and ballroom, The Fairmont has taken polished, fresh elegance to a whole new level. On the night of the event, between the slick lighting and lounge furniture, the space was spectacular. But the coolest part of the evening was when, in the middle of the General Manager’s award announcements, the staff flash mobbed a performance of “Dynamite” by Taio Cruz!

Everyone had so much fun and we had such a blast deejaying that it’s going to be hard to wait a whole year. So thanks to everyone at The Fairmont for asking us to be a part of your killer staff party…and see you soon!

Washington Kastles VIP Party

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

Washington DC’s tennis team, the Kastles, just built a new stadium on The Wharf in DC!

The team’s new home was unveiled during their annual VIP season ticket holder kick off party, which was more of a stylish soiree. While guests enjoyed the venue, views of the Potomac and Pimms, we spun sets of music tailor-made for a swanky summer cocktail party.

It was a lot of fun, and with a champion tennis team like the Kastles so close to home, you can bet more than one of us at Chris Laich Music Services will be at Kastles matches for summers to come!

2011 Washingtonian Best Of Party – Recap

Monday, July 18th, 2011

This year’s Washingtonian Best Of Party was the first Chris Laich Music Services deejayed, and it was amazing. Though it was last week, we still can’t stop talking about it.

Once again, Aimee Dominick and her team at A. Dominick Events did a spectacular job. The National Building Museum’s uplighting, layout and vibe looked incredible and the behind the scenes organization was impeccable.

As usual, the event was sold out, so a huge crowd showed up ready to have a great time, and they weren’t disappointed. Incredible food and drink from our city’s top restaurants (including Bourbon Steak and Citronelle) were plentiful and we mixed in some awesome music – it was a killer event!
