  • Lights, Camera, Music…Action!

    This year, we performed at the annual Disney Swan and Dolphin employee holiday event for the 4th time in a row and we could not have been happier with the turnout. We perform for many different types of events throughout the year, but this one in particular takes quite a bit of planning and coordination to pull off successfully. The show itself is a combination of music and video along with an incredible light show and sound that makes the walls shake! The A/V team at the resort handles all of the lights and sound so they get full credit for the stage in all its glory. We are responsible for the music, the equipment to play the music, some on-stage sound , minimal lighting, and loading video footage to the 4 giant screens. It took 4 of us to complete the setup, which took about 5 hours. This is what 5 hours of setup looks like…

    We took this opportunity to bring out our 4-color laser to create a “laser sky” effect over the dancefloor and it worked amazingly well.

    As for the rest of the night, we will let the pictures speak for themselves!

  • MINI HOUSE CLUB – KIDS, COMMUNITY, AND CULTURE

    On Saturday, November 14, 2015, we had a the privilege of performing for something…a little different. No fancy clubs, no lounges (although adult beverages were served), but it did feel as though we were at a mini music festival. Let’s back up for a minute… A few months ago, we met someone in the music industry who set out on a mission to teach kids about dance music culture through a business venture called Mini House Club (way cooler than Mickey Mouse Club).

    When we met, we talked about her ideas to teach kids about music, DJ culture, etc. and of course, this piqued our interest.

    On Saturday, Mini House Club put together a “kids dance party” complete with a DJ Lab for the kids (compliments of Wilson from the upcoming Vinyl Arts Bar), Glojel (gel-based paint that glows under a blacklight), henna tattoos, spray paint art, kid-yoga, food, drinks, and of course, dance music. We were responsible for playing about 2 hours of dance music that was both kid-friendly (nothing explicit), but also stuck to the theme of electronic dance music.

    At the request of Mini House Club, we recorded the set and posted part 1 of the live recording as a Jailbreak Session that can be heard on the XCON blog! You can expect to hear some classic house music peppered with today’s hits – remixed.

    The event was located at True Serenity and a few pictures have been posted below:

  • A year in review (2014)…and it’s not over yet!

    With 2014 about to wrap up, we thought it would be fun to post a few pictures of this year’s events. What a great year complete with DJing court-side, a wonderful Gala (Wings of Hope) to help our struggling youth, vendor appreciation, HOSA 2014, late nights mixing records with DJ Lu-S, many beautiful weddings, and the annual Disney Holiday cast event. Thank you to those who have supported us, recommended us, and partied with us this year! It was a great year! Let’s do it all over again in 2015…only bigger and better!

  • BASE Camp 2013 Winter Formal

    This weekend, we were honored to be part of the BASE Camp Winter Formal and performed as part of our, “Play it Forward” campaign to help children facing unimaginable circumstances. These kids are some of the most amazing people you will ever meet. Simply put, they are warriors! Fighting cancer and other life threatening illness is incredibly difficult, but with the help of BASE Camp, World Marriott and other vendors, they had their own prom…And they had fun! We had fun.  😮

    One of the most touching moments of the night was when one of the kids joined us on stage…

  • Congratulations to Stefanie and Vincent!

    Congratulations to Stefanie and Vincent on your beautiful wedding! You two managed to pull off one of the most unique weddings we have ever been a part of. From the James Bond introductions with car screeching sound effects to the rockin’ dance floor, this was quite a show! Your guests requesting demanding an encore song at the end of the night was priceless!

    The Veranda is as beautiful as ever and the catering was top notch!
