The San Gabriel Hilton is a beautiful building which stands out among all others in the area.  The large ballroom can be divided into smaller rooms; this wedding used one-third of the ballroom.

The ballroom is already equipped with a projection screen above the stage (the couple would have to move to enjoy the video/slideshow).

Services provided: Sound, music, dance lighting.

Congratulations April and Dean!

Chart House, Redondo Beach, Wedding & Reception

Cake and ocean

Cake and ocean

Located right on the beach (even has its own piece of the beach), has beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean.  With two ceremony areas, either outdoors on the beach or indoors with a view of the ocean, Chart House offers choices for the bride and groom.

The indoor ceremony room, used during this wedding, was a narrow, long room that has six seats per row (2 x 3 with aisle in between).  The ceremony room is adjacent to the reception area, which is the dining room of the restaurant.  The reception area, like the ceremony room is covered with windows with beautiful views.

The restaurant was closed for the morning and afternoon, but needed to be vacated for evening dining service.

Services provided:  Ceremony sound, music, dance lighting.

Congratulations Barry and Stella!

White House Event Center, Anaheim, Spring Ball


The White House Event Center is located in Anaheim, California.  Do not let the busy streets of Highway 39 deter you from this beautiful venue.  Located at the far end of various store fronts, the White House has a room with classic decor and another room with a club atmosphere, separated by a patio area.

For this event, Santa Ana College’s International Student Program held their Annual Spring Ball.  For many of the students, it was their first time dressing up and attending a formal dance (as many students come from areas where Proms and formal dances do not exist).  It was a lovely evening with dining and dancing to a variety of music.

Services provided: uplighting (interior and exterior), dance lighting, fog effect, gobo, sound and music

Noon Year’s Eve, Discovery Science Center

Noon Year’s Eve at Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana!  Family friendly atmosphere with activities for the kids and sparkling cider for the noontime countdown and toast.  Assisted by DJ Heartless during the long day.

NEW WEBSITE (actually, it’s just remodeled)

New Website
I have actually had time to remake my old website and found a program that I can actually use.  Wordpress is not as simple as click-and-drag, but it is close.  Short learning curve, but I was able to post pictures and a couple of videos, make links and setup a website that I can keep updated without much difficulty.

I spent a lot of time reentering old posts, which are duplicates on the Facebook page.  I will continue to copy the Facebook entries onto this site.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, please let me know.  Thanks for checking out the site.

Praxis/Auto Gallery Car Show, Huntington Beach

A friend asked my protege and I to help DJ an event.  Most of the equipment came from another vendor.  A nice day to spend just listening to music.  A number of local car enthusiasts spent the day looking at and comparing cars.  They also had a few great food trucks; kept me satiated.

Universal Hilton, Lighting

Helping out a good friend and DJ, DJ Dais, with lighting at the Universal Hilton.  Congratulations Bo and Tan!
