Playlist – 26 Aug 2016 – Wedding

August 27, 2016 Greg Gioia No comments exist

A Friday wedding! The wedding took place at the U.C. Berkeley Botanical Garden, a lovely site, but a very difficult one from a DJ’s standpoint. Setup involved carrying a sound system 100 yards into a forest, then down into an amphitheatre for the ceremony, then back out, across a parking lot, down a street, and down a long path into the garden for the cocktail hour. Meanwhile I’d set up sound system no. 2 on a patio, and after cocktails I carried the first sound system over to the adjacent dining room. All in all, it was a lot of moving, setting up, and breaking down sound systems, but well worth it to make the wedding a wonderful affair.
