NikeTown Seattle grand re-opening and the GLOVE!


TGIF Everybody!

So last week I had the opportunity to spin for Niketown’s grand-reopening in downtown Seattle. Guess how long I spun for…. wait for it… wait for it………..10 HOURS! Crazy right? Even though it was a long time I had a great time with the whole crew and they were so nice to give me free Nike gear! When I showed up one of the crew members asked me “Do you have your gear?” I was like sure! It’s right there on my cart. She was like NO your clothing! LOL!! She handed me a Nike box, track pants and a top. When I went downstairs to change I opened the Nike box and it was a brand spankin new pair of Airmax 95s! I never received a free pair of anything from NIKE before so I was pretty happy and super thankful that I’m even getting an opportunity like this.

IMG_1868The new store was pretty cool, but I think the only cool thing about the store is the ceiling! On you’re way up to the second floor there’s a design in neon lights with Seattle inspired icons.

IMG_1869Warren Moon also joined the festivities to sign the big 12 that’s displayed inside the store.



As the day went by my cousins came by to visit me and one of them goes… hey is that Gary Payton? I looked up stairs and I was like holy shiet! It’s the GLOVE! I guess my DJ psychic abilities kicked in and I was like I’m going to make this man come over here to the DJ booth. So I switched up the music vibe and went straight 90’s! I started with Father MC feat Jodeci- Everything is going to be alright, then went into Johnny Kemp- Just got paid (see where I’m going here?) Then after the 4th song guess who comes downstairs to the DJ booth.. GARY PAYTON!!! In my head I was like YESSSSS it worked!! He was super BTW! That was probably the highlight of the night since I remember watching this guy as a kid in the 90s.

Well that’s all folks! Till the next post! I’m doing a bunch of the events this week so I’ll def have more blog posts to write. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Emily Schuman of Cupcakes & Cashmere Nordstrom appearance and Thank you baby Jesus for Spanx!

Happy Monday everybody!

Last week I Dj’ed an event for the new release of Emily Schuman of Cupcakes & Cashmere’s new fall line and her new book “Cupcakes & Cashmere – At Home“. The folks at Nordstrom were so kind to send me clothing to wear at the event and gave me her new book! Nordstrom contacted me asking me to pick a piece from the new fall line to wear at the event. After being super excited and very thankful that my favorite store in the whole wide world is going to send me a free dress. I started thinking…..oh sh#@! I hope I can fit her clothes haha!

So after staring at the computer for about an hour that day… I finally picked the Laurel dress thinking… mmmm that looks like it’s loose lol. With the help of being on Weight Watchers (lost 11 pounds as of today!) and a pair Spanx the dress fit (barely). I forgot to mention that I had to buy a cheap circle skirt at Forever21 to wear underneath because the slip that originally comes with the dress was way to short for my liking or maybe I was too tall haha!! I didn’t want to have my booty showing while I’m lifting 20lb speakers on speaker poles LOL!

The event went really well. I played a lot of Top 40 and tried to sneak in some indie/old school tracks too, but  I think I got the evil eye when I played Michael Jackson woops! I didn’t get to meet Emily Schuman, but I took a few pictures of the event.


Everybody in line to meet Emily!


The treat bar!


Emily is channeling her inner Dj with a playlist for a holiday party (I love it!)

Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon Health & Fitness Expo

This was my second year Dj’ing the Rock & Roll Marathon Health & Fitness Expo at Centurylink field! I must say this was the longest Dj shift EVER, but of course its still fun. A whole 9 hours of playing music! The good thing about playing this long is I got to know my music VERY well lol! Plus it was kinda cool going through different genre sets through the day.

Below are some pictures I took of the event.







Discover the Renaissance Hotel!

Global Day of Discovery 2015-Pictures-0003


A few days ago I did an event for the Renaissance Hotel in Seattle called “Global Day of Discovery“. If you’re wondering…. what the heck is that? It’s a global event that all Renaissance Hotels (all 160 of them) are doing on the same day “June 11th. Guests and locals are invited to enjoy drinks, food, art, music and more! It also marks the official launch of the Evenings at Renaissance.

“There is always an opportunity for the unexpected at Renaissance Hotels,” said Dan Vinh, Vice President, Marketing “The Next Gen traveler wants to make the most of business travel to discover local music, art and culinary experiences that they can share with others. With Global Day of Discovery, we celebrate what Renaissance does every day to help our guests discover the soul of the neighborhood and experience the people, sights, sounds, tastes and art of the local culture that make each city unique.”

The event was super chill, but I think the highlight of the night was when one of the guys that worked there busted out and said something about twerkin and Miley Cyrus then started poppin his booty! He totally caught me off guard and didn’t look like the type either to say something like that. Middle aged man in a suit (I think he was one of the managers) and then all of a sudden those two words come out his mouth “twerkin” “Miley Cyrus” hahahahaha. I totally wasn’t playing anything near twerk music or Miley Cyrus but that made my night! They also had what they called their signature bar ritual where a man with lots of muscles and a great tan walks in and makes the signature punch for the night aka spiked punch!

I also had a chance to meet the talented Brooke Westlund! Her art was amazing and she even made a painting live at the event of the Seattle skyline which was one of the prizes given away at the end of the night.

Overall the event went well and if I wasn’t Dj’ing I would totally go to this event. It was like a lounge you would find somewhere in Belltown, but at a Hotel!

Other vendors included:

Glass Vodka

International Rescue committee

Meetings Imagined

St. Jude’s Glamour & Giving featuring ABC’s season 9 Bachelorette!


Last week I did this cool charity event for St. Jude at Neiman Marcus called “Glamour & Giving” .It was hosted by the ABC’s season 9 Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock and her husband Chris Siegfried! It featured a summer runway show, private shopping (Neiman Marcus shut down for the occasion), a high-end auction, a photo booth, music by yours truly and most importantly a special tribute to local families who’ve utilized St. Jude’s lifesaving services.

Honestly I don’t watch much TV so I really never seen the show haha, but they were both very nice! I wish I would have taken a picture with them, but like most of the events I do.. I’m do busy Dj’ing lol! They had tables everywhere around the store filled with different items and this pretty cool way of bidding used by a bunch of ipads.

Below are some pictures I took of the event.
