Playlist – 26 July 2013 – Wedding

Yesterday I was the DJ for a wedding at Fort Mason. I seem to perform there quite often. This time around the wedding was in the General’s Quarters, which is one of my favorite spots in the fort. I had to place sound systems in two rooms– one for the dinner area, and one for the dance area. I also set up a sound system outside on the lawn, as well as some microphones and amplification for a band. In all, it was a fairly complex setup, but I managed to have it all in place in about an hour’s time. I gave myself two hours to do it, which meant I got to sit and read for awhile. I love my job!

 

A fairly large number of guests came from Germany to attend the wedding, so the traditional German wedding song Danz Op De Deel made an appearance in the mix. As for the Christmas song (Christmas in July!), that is a family favorite, so it made sense even given the time of year.
