Event Update - Adam is Busy!

Wow! Lot's going on in the world of Adam's DJ Service!

I wanted to share some information about where we've been, what we've done and what we're doing presently and in the near future.

Two weekends ago, the Buckles Group hosted the Tacoma Dome Wedding Expo ( and it was our first booth in a while, and yet another learning experience!

While the show was going on Saturday, we helped DJ, MC or provide equipment for events at Shilshole Bay Beach Club in Seattle, The Attic in Sumner, Waterways Cruises in Seattle, The Pagoda @ Point Defiance in Tacoma, Cedarbrook Center in Seatac and The Alexis Hotel in Seattle! Yes, a busy day! Then Sunday, I actually attended Day 2 of the Wedding Expo in Tacoma followed by my wife's cousin's wedding at the Liberty Theater in Puyallup (not a great place to have a wedding, if you want my opionion).

Monday the 14th, I attended my NACE meeting at the Bellevue El Gaucho. Tuesday was our South Sound chapter NACE meeting at The Heritage Room in Olympia, with awesome food from Occasions Catering! Saturday the 19th, we had events at Maggiano's Little Italy, Tacoma Golf & Country Club and the Golf Club at Newcastle. Sunday the 20th was no doubt a "farm" day as we participated in events at Tazer Valley Farm in Stanwood, Lord Hill Farms in Snohomish and Genesis Farm in Enumclaw!

Monday the 21st I had an event at Clover Park Technical College. That night, I attended our ABC meeting at the Woodland Park Zoo hosted by Lancer Catering. Tuesday I dropped by the Tacoma Art Museum to check the space out as we'll be providing music at their open house this Sunday from 5:30 to 8pm, thanks to our invitation from their new in-house food provider, Jonz Catering. Today I had a ribbon cutting and grand opening for the new Whirlpool warehouse in Spanaway, which is run by Penske Logistics. I even got my picture with the Maytag Man!

Leah Noland from Balloon Masters made some great decorations!

I also had a meeting with some fellow NACE people to help plan our auction at the LaQuinta in Tacoma. Then I went to a wedding networking group ( at Three Chicks Catering's "The Venue On Union" in Tacoma. This weekend, we'll be participating in the South Sound Wedding Show at the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center. I also have a wedding at the Spirit of Washington Event Center in Renton. Sunday I get to go on a short but much deserved vacation in Las Vegas - to be there for my friends Chris and Allison ( they get married 10 years to the day they met!

As you can see, I am quite busy as the owner of my business. But I take great pride in educating myself and getting to know others who are passionate about helping people have successful events. This is why I encourage my clients to use me as a resource and allow me to do more than just show up to their events and play music! And I still have time to hang with my cute daughter, Elisa!

Labor Day Weddings

I personally had 3 weddings this past weekend and I, the DJ, decided to take some pictures to share! Yes, I know I'm not the best photographer, this is why you hire someone like Hope Haven, Lumina or Totten! I discovered through this process why it's important to have a good camera, too. My Nikon Coolpix takes nice pictures, but it doesn't take the picture right when I press the button; sometimes my patience runs out when I'm pushing the button and it takes a few seconds to actually take the picture. Enough about that, here's how my weekend went.

Friday, my event was at Golden Gardens in Ballard. The "Bathhouse" as they call it, is a nice little venue but it was a little tight with the amount of people our clients invited to their reception. All in all, it worked out! After I got setup, I helped hang the decorations from the rafters and set the chairs around tables.

Holly-Kate Foss with Sweetpea Events was the planner and coordinator for this event and I must say she did a wonderful job!

Our clients, Ted and Lauren Tanabe, are such a great couple! I have a feeling that they'll be together forever!

Saturday, I DJ'd a pretty laid back event at the Heritage Hall in Kirkland. It's a nice little facility. I worked with Sherri Smith with McKenzie Kate Weddings.

Sunday, I DJ'd a wedding with an Indian groom, so there was some integration of Hindi music to the event. It was at a beautiful venue called Alderbrook in Union, WA. You might not be able to tell from the picture below, but it was pouring down rain during the ceremony so luckily, it was moved inside.

I had the pleasure of witnessing a great wedding officiant, Bob Riler.

All in all, it was a great weekend and all the events went well. I hope all our clients are happy with they way their events went and I'm sure we'll continue to do what we do. As I always say here at Adam's DJ Service, leave the music to us, we'll leave the dancin' to you!

A Testimonial From An August Wedding

I thought this testimonial we just received would be a nice little post here on the blog. This is from a wedding at Laurel Creek Manor on August 22nd.

Travis was the DJ at our wedding, and I couldn't have had a better experience. Before a bride picks their dj they should understand how important their role is in their wedding. The DJ is the mini wedding planner that makes your wedding or event flow. If you have a great DJ you will have a perfect wedding... Travis made my wedding perfect... Adams DJ Service provided a one on one meeting with Travis, who helped me set up a time line for my event. Since he had done many weddings in the past he helped me with all the questions I had. Thank you so much for making my wedding special.

I can't emphasize how much it is our goal and philosophy to always provide the service that creates testimonials like the one above.
