Meredith & Brian’s Reception at William Penn Inn

Recently Silver Sound DJ Paul Evans was entertaining guests of Brian and Meredith at The William Penn Inn for their reception.  After their grand introduction, Brian and Meredith surprised their guests with a choreographed dance to Michael Bubble’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” Paul said it was really great to see them moving so gracefully together. “I had to grab a video clip of it”, thought DJ Paul Evans. The pictures below that illustrate this story were captured by Paul as well as his assistant Will.

Our couple also wanted to entertain their guests with a quiz that Paul Evans gave them sitting back-to-back on the dance floor. Paul asked them questions, such as, ”who controls the TV remote control” and “who puts out the trash?” The person who thought they were in charge lifted their shoe, if they thought the other person usually was in charge, they lifted their shoe. It was an interesting game and the audience was brought to laughter on almost every response.

Meredith and her bridesmaids had it going on dancing and singing together, showing ballet poses and syncopated limbo poses.  During some of the more modern club songs you can see Meredith battling one of her friends on the dance floor. “Brian Walton was one of the most considerate people I have had the pleasure of providing services for” said DJ Paul Evans. ” He was always checking to see that we were ok, that we got something to eat, had everything we needed.”

Working at the William Penn Inn is always a great experience.  Paul had arranged uplights in the stage area in the Carriage room, where the acoustics are excellent. So much so that  you can feel the bass all down the wooden ballroom dance floor.

The night drew to a close with a strong dance floor and like the first dance ended with a dip with a kiss. All the best to our dancing couple Brian and Meredith Walton!

Kiersten & Felix’s Reception at Water Works Restaurant

It could not have been a more beautiful day for the wedding of Kiersten and Felix on the river at The Water Works Restaurant.  This location included a restaurant, pavilion and gazebo all located at the edge of the Schuylkill River and below the Philadelphia Art Museum.  Kiersten and Felix had their ceremony at the gazebo followed by their cocktail hour and reception under the pavilion with adjoining tents on both sides to accommodate 160 guests for a sit-down dinner.  As you can see in the pictures, two 50-inch plasma televisions were under each tent running a slide show that Kiersten and Felix made for everyone to see during cocktail hour and dinner.

Assistance in organizing the details of Kiersten and Felix’s celebration was provided by Megan Kline of Megan Kline Events who you can see arranging name cards in the photos below.  Silver Sound DJ Paul Evans brought a four-speaker sound system. The two outer speakers tilted towards the tents so all music and announcements could easily be heard and understood.  Because Paul was setup with his back to the sunset on the river, the glare was preventing him from seeing anything on his laptop screen.  Thankfully, a custom built visor solved the problem.  As they say “the show must go on.”

Prior to the event Paul met with Megan Kline as well as Sophia Agorastos, facility director,who were on hand for most of the event to make sure all the important logistics and catering played out.  Kiersten and Felix had many guests from New York in attendance.  They wanted a diverse music selection with some NYC Hip-Hop and cool grooves as well as Latin and dance club hits.  There was also quite a bit of Salsa and Merengue Dancing throughout the course of the evening.

DJ Paul Evans, MC Jean Jacques and his brother Sam Jacques all had the distinct pleasure of taking turns dancing with the beautiful bride on her wedding day.  All were impressed with the salsa dance moves of the groom Felix Garcia.  Knowing that Felix and Kiersten wanted to have a very exciting dance party, Paul brought an extra assistant who then doubled as a dancer on the dance floor.  Manny is seen break-dancing at one point and one of the guests couldn’t resist joining him on the floor.  After that Felix was breaking it down while everyone circled around him.

DJ Paul Evans was surprised to look up and see Kiersten airborne followed by Felix and grabbed some quick pics as they rode above the crowd in the seated position.  MC Jean Jacques, who joined Paul Evans to pump up the crowd, gave this wedding everything he had.  It was discovered later that he ended up losing his voice until the following Monday!

Special thanks to Paul’s assistant Bill Burns and Jeans brother Sam for most of the photographs and video below.  Congratulations to Kiersten and Felix Garcia on their new life together!

Magaly & Kevin’s Wedding Reception

Our story begins with our bride, Magaly, when she attended the wedding of Carlo and Jonalyn Pistritto on Jan 15 at the Ballroom at the Ben. She liked the music mix so much, she and Kevin met with DJ Paul Evans and hired him for their celebration. Fast forward to June 17th, 2011 and we begin Magaly and Kevin’s reception at the Brigalias in Sicklerville, NJ.

During dinner Paul bgena the evening with some classic rocks songs from Rod Stewart and Billy Joel. But as soon as he put on some Bachata and Merengue, a Latin Dance party was underway, complete with Salsa and moving along into Latin themed club songs from artists like Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez. All line dances from the Cha Cha Slide to the Cupid Shuffle were well received and Paul remembers the crowd young and old really jamming to Rockin’ Robin by the Jackson 5.

A guest requested a Spanish Line Dance that had a Country Western feel with Spanish Vocals. As you can see in the pictures and video below when this song came on everyone on the dance floor were twirling napkins like lassos. Right after that, DJ Paul Evans dropped in the “Mexican Hat Dance,” to continue the napkin twirling.

Magaly told Paul to put on a Conga for the ladies to circle around her and Kevin standing on chairs with Kevin holding her veil, when the song stopped, Paul was to drop in “All the Single Ladies,” and announce the throwing of the garter.

The night was a huge hit and in this particular instance exhibited DJ Paul Evans skill at fusing Latin and American Pop standards together to bring together a mix of people with different musical tastes onto the floor and keep them there!

Samantha & Kevin’s Wedding Reception at The Waterford Room

Silver Sound DJs had another opportunity to rock the highly regarded Waterford Room at The Valley Forge Radisson in King of Prussia, PA. DJ Paul Evans is the voice behind the mix in the video as well as the force behind the beats moving everybody on the dance floor. The bride and groom, Kevin and Samantha, asked for an extensive list of songs that everyone would enjoy at a wedding reception. As you can see in the photos and video they really knew the musical taste of their guests. Notably, ‘Footloose’ drew a great response and went great with the retro sunglasses that were distributed. DJ Paul Evans kept everybody’s feet moving right up until the end of the evening where he closed with a confetti cannon showering over the crowd.

Megan & Nathan’s Wedding Reception

This past weekend Silver Sound DJ Paul Evans entertained at the Scanticon Valley Forge in King of Prussia, PA for Megan and Nathan.  Paul and his assistant Will setup 10 lights along the window wells throughout the Grand Ballroom washing the walls in beautiful colors.
Megan and Nathan enjoyed a variety of country music, dance music, 80’s and more. Some of Nathan’s family even flew in from Germany for this special day.  More notably, because his relatives learned some English just before their arrival, Nathan had agreed to yodel in front of all his guests at his wedding.  DJ Paul Evans just happened to have a Bavarian yodel for Nathan to yodel along to.  But perhaps the most outrageous part of the night was when Nathan took to the dance floor with his new wife and flamboyantly unveiled his custom tiger skin button down.  At the end of the evening Nathan and three of his friends sang along together a song about friendship.  If you would like to see what Silver Sound DJs can offer you for your wedding day click on the request a quote button at www.silversound.com today.
