Amal and Jon had a gorgeous, elegant wedding filled with people that loved to party! There was barely a moment when the dance floor wasn’t packed, which makes the amazing photos that Documentary Associates shot even more impressive.

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!

To see (and hear) more, check out the 2011 Washingtonian Best Of Party video.

WOW! 2010 is ending with a bang!

First is was “Top Vote Getter” for 2010 in the music, DJ and entertainment category in Washington Bride and Groom, and now we’ve been awarded the 2011 “Best of Weddings” in the DC area by The Knot?

It’s such a huge honor to be selected as one of the best DJs in Washington DC by The Knot. Almost like winning an Oscar, except it’s the couples who we’ve worked with, instead of the Academy we have to thank. We demand more from ourselves than any bride ever could and it pays off.

So, a HUGE, heartfelt thank you to all our fantastic clients for leaving such amazing positive testimonials on The Knot!

We are looking forward to see what spectacular things 2011 holds!!

Best of Happy Hour Party!

Washingotonian Best of Happy Hour

We had the best time at the Washingtonian Best Of Happy Hour at Redwood restaurant on Bethesda Row in downtown Bethesda. When Jan Haber at the Washingtonian invited invited us to participate, I knew it was going to be a blast, and I am so appreciative of the opportunity to be a part of it!

Since it was an outdoor event, we ran 8 of our wireless Bose speakers all around the space, and the sound was amazing!

I spun all kinds of music to create a block party feel!   I was keeping everything right on beat and put together some great sets including the new Katy Perry f. Snoop, Journey, Prince, Jay- Z, Madonna, some B.O.B., Beyonce, Black Eyed Peas, old-school Shaggy, Taio Cruz, a club mix of Living on a Prayer as well as the new Lady Gaga.  All over the board!

The party was packed! I ran into a few wedding folks, including Allison Britton, Aimee Otto, and Brian Childs. The event would not have been complete with a guest appearance from the super-fab Jill Hudson Neal herself! It was so nice to see her albeit for about a minute.

One of the best parts of the night was the cupcakes my great friend Leslie, from Fancy Cakes by Leslie, gave me for my kids! Her shop is right there on Bethesda Ave., facing into Bethesda Row. Of course, we ate them in no time – there is NO wonder why she’s been voted the best in town for so many years. Her talent, passion, and dedication to her craft reveals itself in every product she produces!

After I was done deejaying, we had a delicious dinner at Redwood.  I spoke with the owner, Jared Rager, prior to the event  and he was very accommodating.  Jared owns two more places in DC, Sonoma and Blue Ridge.  He’s a local guy, and I love that Redwood sources almost everything on its menu from local organic farmers and focuses on environmentally sustainable choices.

Thanks to everyone for making it such a fantastic event!

Capital Food Fight: Top Chef, DC Style

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009
Capitol Food Fight 2009
We were proud when Chris Laich Music Services was asked to participate in The Capital Food Fight 2009, benefiting DC Central Kitchen, on November 11th.  Not as chefs, of course, but to provide music.
The DC Central Food kitchen is a very forward thinking charity, raising the concept of “a soup kitchen” to the next level.  The DC Central Food Kitchen acts as a central location for the DC area’s unused food, which is prepared into meals that are then delivered to social service agencies for distribution. Additionally, the DC Central Food Kitchen trains and educates homeless men and women about the food service industry, providing not just sustenance but also opportunity.

Hosted by Chef José Andrés, Chef Anthony Bourdain, and Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis, the Capital Food Fight “brings the food industry’s best talent together to support DC Central Kitchen’s unique brand of community empowerment. Dozens of hot restaurants serve signature dishes to guests while top chefs battle on-stage.”

As fans of Top Chef and Iron Chef, it was both exciting and an honor to be a part of an event benefiting a charity with such a strong and progressive focus on building a better community.
